Franklin Lamb – Flooding Syria with foreign arms: A view from Damascus
I have been researching foreign arms transfers into certain Middle East countries since last summer in Libya, where to a lesser degree the identical foreign actors were involved in facilitating the transfer of arms and fighters to topple the then, “Libyan Arab Jamahiriya.”
During a recent stay in Syria, I was able to observe first hand, substantial demonstrative evidence supporting the thesis that American, Zionist and the Persian Gulf Arab intelligence agencies as well as private arms dealers from these countries top the list of more than two dozen countries benefiting from the crisis in Syria by injecting arms. These countries gain politically and financially, via governmental and black market arms transfers.
Det är tredje gången jag stöter på det här, att inhyrda legokrigare i Syrien tror att de är skickade att slåss mot Israel! Först var det William Engdahl som i somras när han var i Turkiet hade hört samma historia av någon som varit i Syrien. Sen skrev Robert Fisk om det för ett par månader (?) sedan när han var i Syrien, och nu Lamb.
Remarkably, as was witnessed in 2007, during the conflict at the Nahr al Bared Palestinian refugee camp in north Lebanon, some of the arriving eager jihadists in “New Afghanistan” actually believe that they are fighting against Zionist forces near occupied Palestine and not killing fellow Arabs in Syria.
Och så nämner Lamb något som ger stöd åt Thierry Meyssan, som i artikeln i förra inlägget menar att en överenskommelse är på gång mellan USA, Ryssland och Iran om att få till stånd ett slut på våldet i Syrien.
Clinton’s language is being interpreted by some as evidence that a post-election Obama Whitehouse, should he win on November, may move toward the Russian, Chinese, and Iranian position and away from, what one Congressional source derisively labeled, “ the view from the [Persian] Gulf gas stations” i.e. Saudi Arabia, Qatar and some other despotic monarchies.
Även detta kan vara ett tecken på att Meyssan har rätt – Iran, India share similar views on situation of Syria: Official
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Mohammad-Mehdi Akhoundzadeh says Tehran and New Delhi are of the opinion that foreign military intervention in Syria should be avoided.
“The views of Iranian and Indian officials are similar and given India’s role in the region, they are also eager to see the Syrian issue resolved peacefully. We regularly consult with our Indian friends,” Akhoundzadeh said on Friday.
presstv.ir – Syria insurgents likely to commit war crime: UN
The UN Human Rights body has reacted to the video posted on the web that shows the foreign-backed insurgents in Syria executing soldiers, saying the video probably shows “war crimes.”
The body also said on Friday that the YouTube video could be used as “evidence” to bring the perpetrators to justice.
