Thierry Meyssan menade i sin senaste artikel att USA inte ville något annat med sitt prat om direkta vapenleveranser till ”rebellerna” i Syrien än att Free Syrian Army skulle likvidera extremisterna.
”Washington no longer hopes to conquer Syria, just to have the FSA liquidate the Al-Nusra Front.”
Ett inlägg på Press TV för några dagar sedan gav stöd åt teorier om att försök görs för att skapa konfrontationer mellan grupperna – ”The al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front has assassinated a large number of the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA) officers, a report says.”
Och idag kommer det här uttalandet – english.ruvr.ru – Hollande urges Syria rebels to retake extremist-held zones – kanske har Meyssan rätt!?

French President Francois Hollande urged Syrian rebels on Sunday to ”retake” zones that have fallen into the hands of extremist Islamist groups.
”The opposition must retake control of these areas and push these groups out,” Hollande told reporters in Doha.

voltairenet.org – Fiasco for ”Friends of Syria” meeting

The meeting of the ”Friends of Syria” held on Saturday, 22 June, in Doha (Qatar), closed unsuccessfully. France, the United Kingdom and the United States had announced at the Lough Erne G8 summit that they would officially be arming the Free Syrian Army. On 14 June, the latter had provided the list of weapons and ammunition they needed.
Not only did the meeting bring together a mere 11 members out of 121, but it also came short of taking responsibility for the official delivery of weapons in violation of UN resolutions.

The day before, Paulo Pinheiro, Chairperson of the Commission of Inquiry of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Syria, stated that Western leaders would be held personally liable for the crimes committed by the ”rebels” with such weapons [1].
According to French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, two Member States took an formal stance against the official delivery of weapons. Accordint to his British counterpart, William Hague, the UK is one of them. London would therefore have shifted position.

voltairenet.org – Arms deliveries to ’Syrian rebels’ equally liable for crimes committed

The delivery of weapons to Syrian rebels is in breach of UN resolutions. This enables the victims’ families to sue individually before the International Criminal Tribunal those leaders who should decide to do so, and allows Syria to file a suit against their states with the International Court of Justice.
Paulo Sérgio Pinheiro, Chairman of the United Nations International Commission of Inquiry for Syria, told the press on 21 June 2013, that “States who provide arms have a responsibility in terms of the eventual use of these arms to commit gross human rights violations, war crimes or crimes against humanity.”

Press TV – Foreign-backed militants kill five in Damascus bombings

Reports say one of the attacks targeted a police station in the northern Damascus neighborhood of Rukn al-Din. Three people, including civilians and police officers, were killed in the first explosion which went off behind a bakery near the police station.
The second incident involved mortar rounds which targeted a security compound in Bab Musalla, leaving at least two others dead.

Finian Cunningham – Friends of Syria Meeting in Doha: Saudi slip signals Iran obsession in Syria

The international criminal conspiracy known euphemistically as the “Friends of Syria” gathers once again in Qatar this weekend to discuss how to expedite their covert war for regime change in Syria.

On the eve of the Qatar meeting this weekend, the London-based Financial Times reported:
Saudi Arabia, which competes with Iran for regional influence, considers the Syrian conflict a direct threat to its national security, with its potential to strengthen an alliance between powerful Shia elements in a string of countries stretching from Iran to Lebanon, via Iraq and Syria.”
The first thing to note from this disclosure is that the conflict in Syria is not about “supporting pro-democracy Syrian rebels” as the Western governments and media and their regional allies have been making out for the past two years. It is clearly about regime change in Syria and a competition for regional influence, in particular between Western-backed Saudi Arabia and Iran.

The first press reports were of a few small protests, dwarfed by the far more numerous and substantial protests that erupt every day in the United States, Britain and France. A March 16, 2011 New York Times report noted that “In Syria, demonstrations are few and brief.” These early demonstrations—a few quixotic young men declaring that “the revolution has started!”, relatives of prisoners protesting outside the Interior Ministry—seem disconnected from the radical Islamist rebellion that would soon develop.
Within days, larger demonstrations were underway in Dara, where citizens were said to have been “outraged by the arrest of more than a dozen schoolchildren.” Contrary to a myth that has since taken hold, these demonstrations were hardly peaceful. Protesters set fire to the local Ba’ath Party headquarters, as well as to the town’s main courthouse and a branch of SyriaTel. Some protesters shot at the police, who returned fire. [2] One can imagine the reaction of the New York City Police to protesters in Manhattan setting fire to the federal court building, firebombing the Verizon building and opening fire on police.

Ministers agree to arm Syria militants
When the stakes are high, then it is time to up your game. This is according to US Secretary of State John Kerry regarding the Syrian situation.
Though it may be just a game to Kerry and his allies, it is serious business for the Syrian people.
After tens of thousands have been killed, along with infrastructure that has been destroyed, the Americans and their Qatari allies want to up the ante and send more money and arms to insurgents, whom Russian President Vladimir Putin label as organ eaters
