During the Democrat debate on Saturday Hillary Clinton blamed Bashar al-Assad for the situation in Syria.
“I think it’s fair to say, Assad has killed, by last count, about 250,000 Syrians. The reason we are in the mess we’re in, that ISIS has the territory it has, is because of Assad,” said Clinton.
She said the rule of al-Assad “creates more terrorists, more extremists by the minute.”
Clinton’s remarks are completely at odds with reality. The terrorists and extremists in Syria are a creation of the United States, the Gulf Emirates and Turkey. The “civil war” in Syria was engineered prior to the so-called Arab Spring.
“Preparations for the ‘Arab Spring’ began not as unrest had already begun, but years before the first ‘fist’ was raised, and within seminar rooms in D.C. and New York, US-funded training facilities in Serbia, and camps held in neighboring countries, not within the Arab World itself,” writes Tony Cartalucci.
Direct evidence of these preparations surfaced in April, 2011 when the AFP ran an article detailing how State Department under Hillary Clinton sponsored “efforts to help activists in Arab and other countries gain access to technology that circumvents government firewalls, secures telephone text and voice messages, and prevents attacks on websites.”
Michael Posner, the assistant Secretary of State for human rights and labor, told reporters the United States would “basically provide both technology, training, and diplomatic support to allow people to freely express their views.”
In 2013 Roland Dumas, a former French minister for Foreign Affairs, told a French television station the British were part of the plan to destabilize Syria.
“I was in England two years before the violence in Syria on other business,” Dumas said. “I met with top British officials, who confessed to me that they were preparing something in Syria.”
“This was in Britain not in America. Britain was organizing an invasion of rebels into Syria.”
In his book “The WikiLeaks Files,” Julian Assange writes that the United States had planned to overthrow Syria long before the 2011 uprising and current proxy war against the government of Bashar al-Assad.
A chapter in the book references a 2006 diplomatic cable from the U.S. Ambassador to Syria, William Roebuck, which discusses a plan to force the Syrian government to overreact to perceived threats as the orchestrated Arab Spring unfolded.
That plan was to use a number of different factors to create paranoia within the Syrian government; to push it to overreact, to make it fear there’s a coup… so in theory it says “We have a problem with Islamic extremists crossing over the border with Iraq, and we’re taking actions against them to take this information and make the Syrian government look weak, the fact that it is dealing with Islamic extremists at all.”
There is plenty of evidence showing the proxy war in Syria was orchestrated by Washington and Saudi Arabia as an offensive against Shia Iran. The primary objective is to balkanize the Middle East and, in the case of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Emirates, elevate Sunni Wahhabism as the primary variant of Islam in religious and political control of the Middle East and its natural resources.
