Nya ondsinta planer enligt Lamb, att ta makten över ekonomin i Syrien genom IMF-metoden att göra landet skuldsatt hos västs storbanker!? Och.. han har också uppgifter om att ledande personer erbjudits 50 miljoner dollar för att avgå och lämna Syrien!
Franklin Lamb – War by Another Name in Syria, The Obama Administration prepares a “Marshall Plan” to reconstruct Syria, but not for the Syrians ….Economic imperialism to achieve what funding and arming the Gulf sponsored rebels could not?
What Washington has in mind constitutes an attempt to gain control over Syria by controlling its economy via contracts for rebuilding the country and “lending” the hoped for post-Assad Syrian government as much as 300 billion dollars to be secured by Syrian assets. IMF economists estimate the value of the public sector in Syria, exceeds half a trillion dollars. Under the US-led pan, creditors can take control of ownership of the public sector, if Syria accepts the plan for pledges to secure debt. The buyers of the debt will be largely American and indirectly Israeli businessmen as well as from the Gulf. Qatar specifically is gambling on this plan, to work with “international parties”, to immerse Syria in debt, and then drive the country to sell the private sector at a very small fraction of their true values.
Some who are warning against the scheme point out that Syrians are capable of rebuilding their own country and have the labor force and raw materials to do it. Foreign aid will be welcomed by the Syrian government but not at the price of ceding the Arab Syrian Republic to a new western crafted economic order. What is hidden in the war on Syria is reported to be much bigger than has been divulged to date, and involves winding down the military actions in favor of economic aggression against the Syrian population which the layers of US sanctions to date is just a harbinger.
In this context, according to Western Diplomatic sources, the US government and some Gulf countries have tried to bribe Rami Makhlouf, a cousin of Syria’s President, to break with the government and leave the country. Some other well-known figures have also been offered large sums of cash to break ranks. Last month, one prominent Syrian nationalist who works with the government told this observer of receiving a $ 50 million dollar offer to defect and leave Syria. The official rejected the bribe and ridiculed the government that made the offer by explaining that as proud Syrian nationalists, no amount of money would break the sacred bond between Syrians and their country.
With respect to Mr. Makhlouf, he did not react to being placed on the US Treasury Department’s “Specially Designated Nationals” (SDN) list which blocks assets and prohibits, under severe penalties, U.S. citizens from dealing with them, nor did he dignify an American clemency offer with even a reply.
This week, Syria’s President put the goal of the Marshall Plan for Syria succinctly, without identifying it, “What is happening in Syria is a project for those states to push a non-submissive state towards the brink and to look for a new president who says ‘yes’ (to their orders). They have not found and they will not find in the future,” Assad stressed while adding, “The interference is a blatant violation of international law and the sovereignty of this country; they (western states and their Gulf allies) want to destabilize the country and spread chaos and backwardness.”

CIA readies Syria rebels for August attack: Report
The US intelligence agency is stockpiling weapons shipped by the U.S. as well as European and Middle Eastern allies in Jordan to prepare the militants for a concerted onslaught against the Syrian government in August, a report says.
The CIA will continue mobilizing arms, including anti-tank missiles, in Jordan for three weeks to lay the ground for the assault, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The agency will spend another two weeks on choosing among the militants and training them, the report adds.
The CIA is working with France to move arms obtained by the European countries to Jordan and Saudi Arabia is expected to send shoulder-fired antiaircraft missiles, known as Manpads, to the militants being trained in Syria’s southern neighbor, according to the U.S. daily.
From August, the CIA will coordinate sending hundreds of trained militants into Syria every month as part of the agency’s cover plan authorized by President Barack Obama earlier this month, the paper added
Christof Lehmann – U.S. – Russian Top-Diplomats to Discuss G2 Conference. Syria Crisis has become Regional War
U.S. and Russian officials, led by Top-Diplomats John Kerry and Sergei Lavrov will be meeting next week to discuss developments of the situation in Syria and the Middle East and the planned G2 Conference. The Syria Crisis has evolved into a de facto regional war which is likely to intensify, as both sides doubt, whether it is at all possible to hold a meaningful, international conference on Syria.
Press TV – Russia slams arming Syria rebels as contradictory to Geneva talks
Russian Foreign Minister has slammed Western efforts to supply more arms to Syrian insurgents as a bid to regain lost ground before the Geneva Conference, saying the scheme contradicts the very essence of the peace talks.
Speaking at a Friday press conference in the Moroccan Capital of Rabat, Sergei Lavrov said, ”The activities aimed at providing weapons to the opposition, which have recently intensified, only means that the precondition [set by the foreign-backed militants to restore a balance of power on the battle ground] is supported by the West and other countries which are going to supply such weapons, this contradicting the very concept of the conference, which is to begin without any preconditions.”

Syria: the Art of Standing on the Right Side of History – orientalreiew.org
The ongoing Syrian crisis will be certainly viewed by future generations as a classic example of how a completely false reality, as presented by the dominant Western political class and corporate media, has inscrutably resulted in the moral and political reinforcement of the opposing party, which was desperately defending the principles of law and justice under unprecedented pressure from a transnational party of war.
The public reaction in the West on Putin’s performance at the G8 suggests that there exists a conscious or perhaps unconscious awareness of this here. Putin has successfully adopted the trend to reformat the matrix imposed on the minds in the West. Western politicians are so entangled in their web of lies, particularly on the Syrian issue, that a reasonable and straightforward speech by the Russian leader based on irrefutable facts and common sense could leave them dumb, curious, and stunned. And the people are able to sense who is standing on the right side of history.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has warned against supplying arms to the militants in Syria, saying the risks of the move are too high.

sana.sy – Al-Jaafari: No meaningful conference can be held if weapons continue to flow into Syria
”As long as the US administration and the EU continue to prepare weapons to be sent to the armed terrorist groups whom they call ‘rebels’, they won’t come to the negotiating table, for they know that they are supported politically, militarily, financially and through media.”
”Why would they come to negotiations in Geneva when they are getting millions of dollars from Qataris and Saudis and receiving logistical support from the Turkish government and weapons from Western powers?”
He added that the UN has to be transparent, indicating that Syria submitted a written request to the Secretary-General to investigate the role of Qatari intelligence in kidnapping members from the Filipino peacekeeping troops in Golan, demanding that the UN Secretary-General or United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations supply the Syrian government with a written response on the outcomes of the investigation. ”In fact, they conducted no investigation.”
”The Qataris and Saudis have drowned this organization in petrol money, and the official letters that we address to the UN members and the secretary-general are there and everybody can find them on the internet…I have addressed 408 letters since the beginning of the crisis describing every single detail related to every incident.” On the international conference on Syria, al-Jaafari said that the Syrian government is committed to the importance of holding it in Geneva as opposed to ”oppositions” on the other side linked to ”foreign agendas” from where they get financial, political, and diplomatic and media support.
