Finian Cunningham – Syria at the Mercy of the West’s ”Ministers of Terrorism”, Foreign Policy by Terrorists and Thugs in High Office
The latest display of criminality in high office is the call by French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius for the “smashing” of Syria and the killing of its president, Bashar al-Assad. The words may have been spoken with an eloquent French accent, but their practical meaning has all the savagery of cold-blooded bludgeoning.
What we are seeing is a descent into barbarism and an open embrace of international lawlessness — by the same governments that appoint themselves to lecture the rest of the world on the principles of democracy and human rights.
Reports and videos, showing that the Western-backed mercenaries of the so-called Free Syrian Army are bolstered by al-Qaeda brigades and other terrorists, have been greeted with barely veiled glee in Washington and European capitals.
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice have pointedly refused to condemn the surge in bombing atrocities across Syria that have accompanied the influx of terrorists into the country over recent months. Indeed, Washington officials have effectively condoned such barbarities by their studied silence. Rice has even made statements, suggesting that more such atrocities will follow until the Syrian president does what her government demands and surrenders office. In mafia terminology, it’s called “making an offer he can’t refuse.”
The “terror” that Washington and other Western governments have promoted as the defining existential threat to democratic civilization over the past 10 years, has suddenly and seamlessly morphed into “war with terror” when it comes to Syria. And Western media that are intoxicated with hubris over supposed “free, independent thinking” do not even raise a timid question about this glaring contradiction. Indeed, these organs compound their intellectual bankruptcy with moral bankruptcy by concealing their government’s outrageous duplicity.
However, for those with eyes, when it comes to Syria, the mask of Western pretence at defending international law and human rights has now been ripped off. The face revealed is a grotesque, salivating monster, whose motives are evidently selfish elite power and domination in the strategic Middle East region. And this objective is to be achieved by any means necessary — foremost by the collusion with bloodthirsty killers.
A Syrian delegation, headed by the Deputy Prime Minister, together with the national reconciliation minister, has arrived in Moscow. This is the second visit by the Syrian government this month.
UK provides intelligence to insurgents in Syria: Sunday Times
A report by The Sunday Times reveals British intelligence on Syrian troop movements has been helping insurgents launch attacks on Syrian forces.

The disclosure provided further evidence that British intelligence is playing a covert role in the anti-Syria campaign.
The official said Britain has two military bases in Cyprus, one in Dhekelia and the other in Akrotiri.
German spy ship aiding Syrian rebels: report
A German newspaper has reported that a spy ship from the German intelligence agency is helping Syrian rebels in their fight to oust the Damascus regime. Meanwhile, the UN observer mission to Syria is coming to an end.
