Political leaders in Washington, Riyadh, London, Ankara, Paris, and Doha, continue to encourage the Free Syrian Army (FSA) to enter major cities in Syria in order to overthrow the government of Bashar al-Assad. The various units of the armed forces of Syria which are exclusively Syrian are fighting the FSA which relies on outside nations for support. Not only this, the FSA is also supported by international jihadists, covert operatives, mercenaries and special agents from various nations. It is also noticeable that while the armed forces of Syria represent all the faith communities of this country. The same can’t be said about the opposition FSA which is virtually a Sunni Islamist movement.

The armed forces of Syria which represent the mosaic of this country, is up against various brutal sectarian and terrorist organizations. Equally alarming, is the fact that the FSA and other terrorist organizations like al-Qaeda have carte blanche to kill political ministers, refugees, religious minorities, journalists and elites which are loyal to the Syrian government. Such blatant support of international terrorism, sectarianism and sedition is being assisted by many media agencies which twist everything in order to pin the blame on the government of Syria.

Sergey Lavrov, the Russian Foreign Minister, is clearly disturbed by Washington’s lack of concern about the terrorist tactics of the FSA which is being inflicted against the Syrian people and refugees. Recently government ministers have been killed, refugees were attacked by the FSA in Damascus, the BBC showed images of the FSA attacking people brutally in Aleppo, terrorists have killed journalists and religious minorities have fled various terrorist organizations. However, despite this, barely a murmur can be heard in Washington, London and Paris.

Therefore, Lavrov was clearly irked by the US State Department which made it clear that terror acts were not surprising given the current leadership of Syria. Lavrov responded by stating that “This is direct endorsement of terrorism. How are we supposed to understand that? …This is a sinister position – I cannot find words to express our attitude towards that.”

Lavrov also had harsh words for the comments made by Susan Rice who represents America at the United Nations (UN). Susan Rice somehow wants to link the terrorist attacks against the people of Syria and link this with enforcing a UN diktat against the government of Syria. In other words, terrorists are to be rewarded for spreading more mayhem and carnage. Lavrov reacted by stating that “In other words this means ‘We are going to support such acts of terrorism until the UNSC does when we want,”  it is certainly a strange measure to be taken by a nation which suffered so badly from terrorism on September 11.  

Lavrov also responded to news that terrorists had took over border controls. He stated that “If such actions of taking territories by terrorists are supported by our partners, we would like to ask them what their position on Syria is. What do they want to achieve in this country?”

At the same time Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of State, made it clear that opposition forces which are armed, trained, paid and where leaders are based in various different countries, should be supported once firm bases are created in Syria. This would imply that FSA bases in Turkey and other covert operations in this country will move next to having firm military bases within Syria. Once this takes place then the border areas will be able to take in fresh Islamists, mercenaries, covert operatives and special agents in order to crush secular Syria. Surely, this is a direct violation of many international laws but for a nation which dropped Agent Orange all over Vietnam and surrounding nations like Laos and Cambodia, then anything is possible. After all, international law doesn’t take into account the reality of major powers which abuse other nations.

If Moscow is truly interested in solving the Syrian crisis then clearly it is essential to protect the government of Syria if the US is going to create “a bridgehead” to destroy the armed forces of this nation. China, BRIC nations, Iraq and friendly regional nations which are independent must do more to stem the tide of “international terrorism” and the “destabilization of nations.” Now, no nation can claim to not know the objectives of Washington – therefore, either Syria is protected by nations which are free of political pressure from America – or yet another nation will be crushed by outside forces which only care about geopolitics.

Of course this isn’t implying a major war, on the contrary, like the Russian Federation mentioned time after time a political solution is needed. Yet if so many nations are going to sponsor the destabilization of a country including using terrorism, sectarianism and sedition; then a joint peacekeeping force of “trusted nations” is needed. Either the world abides by institutions which support consensus and joint action when appropriate – or the continuing destabilization of nations will take place on the “watch” of Washington, Riyadh, Paris, London, Ankara and Doha.

Media outlets may like to focus on the reality of Afghanistan, Iraq and Kosovo. Since the end of the Kosovo conflict hundreds of Serbian Orthodox Christians have been killed by Kosovo Albanians but how many Kosovo Albanians are in prison for these crimes? Indeed, Hashim Thaci is implicated in the organ scandal whereby people were killed for organs but despite this he can visit America and Japan freely. Likewise, if the US and allies couldn’t bring about peace in Iraq then what hope of achieving anything in Syria? Not only this, look what happened to the Christians, Shabaks, Yazidis and Mandaeans in this country – does the same fate await the minorities of Syria? Lastly, the US entered a coalition with Islamic terrorists in Afghanistan in the 1980s and early 1990s. Only after September 11 did America concern itself with terrorism because this event meant that former allies would now become enemies by default. Yet just like before this US-Sunni Islamic terrorist alliance took hold before September 11 – then even after the “false war between former friends” took place – it is clear that both periods witnessed chaos and no peace can be found after the Najibullah government was defeated.

If America and other nations are so concerned about other countries being militaristic then maybe they could hint to Turkey to leave northern Cyprus and to stop abusing the sovereignty of Iraq. Likewise, America, the United Kingdom and France should look in the mirror. However, this isn’t going to happen and the same applies to the “Palestinian Question.” The reality is simple, powerful nations can destabilize at random and the media war will do the rest along with the other ratlines. It is time for other nations to stand up to the “failed domino theory” before Washington decides on picking on another nation.

Meanwhile, FSA terrorists have entered Aleppo and the BBC link below shows them brutally attacking un-armed civilians. One can only imagine what would have happened if the FSA had not been caught on camera. Once more terrorists enter major cities and start fighting while civilians are based in the same area. It should be remembered that it wasn’t the Syrian armed forces which entered Aleppo to start fighting. However, this will be ignored by many major agencies which have an agenda because the new world order is “follow the leader” and this especially applies when the Democrats are in power in Washington.

It is essential for the Syrian army to prevent any major city falling to the FSA and other terrorist networks. The same applies to preventing firm bases near the border in order to increase the ratlines entering Syria. If the US does what Hillary Clinton implies then the Russian Federation and other nations must respond to this open aggression by sending in peacekeepers providing the government of Damascus supports such a move.
