Stoking the Civil War in Syria

EPPSo now we are witnessing the hysterical war hawks of the Obama Administration & Co. calling for military strikes in Syria. What is the real reason for this? Why now? Many commentators have criticized Obama for opposing Assad, yet stopping short of deposing Assad. Why grant verbal support to the rebels, yet refrain (for so long) on direct military support? Why only work covertly through regional proxies/allies? Why was there so much hesitation for so long to pursue war? And why are they pushing so hard for it now? The press likes to refer to U.S. strategy in Syria as "confused" or "contradictory," but the reality is much worse: it's pure malevolence. The aim in Syria is to sustain civil war, to give Iran its "Vietnam," to keep the violence going, and only intervene when its necessary to "tilt the balance" in favor of the rebels. No peace. Only continuous war.

Empire, Power, and People with Andrew Gavin Marshall- Episode 86

Syria and the Geopolitics of Empire

EPPSyria is complex. It's an uprising against a tyrant, a civil war between the regime and violent rebel groups, a regional war between Iran and Saudi Arabia, a wider proxy war between the West (especially the US) and Iran (allied with Russia), it's a counter-revolution to the Arab Spring and the symbol of the challenge of maintaining imperial hegemony in an awakening world. The people of Syria are caught in the middle of the geopolitics of empire, and are suffering as a result. This episode breaks down the geopolitics of empire in the Middle East-Syria.

Uber-Neocons: The Main Architects of Post-Assad Syria at Work

Bush Era’s Good-Ol’ Familiar Faces Resurface again on Operation Syria

With the approaching Finale for Syria’s Assad the Uber-Neocon architects of US foreign policy have been hard at work. Assuming (albeit knowingly) the certainty of the soon-to-come end for Assad’s government, the neocon architects are drafting and crafting their objectives for the Post-Assad regime in Syria. I know the mainstream and pseudo-alternative media use the term “Neocon” loosely and willy-nilly, but I can assure you this is not the case with my usage of “Uber-Neocons’ here. You will see that clearly after reading the following facts.

Yesterday I found this ‘interesting’ article in the Turkish newspaper Zaman [All Emphasis Mine]: [Read more...]
