World War III: The False Narrative that Fuels Conflict in Syria and Beyond
World War III: The False Narrative that Fuels Conflict in Syria and Beyond from The Daily Bell
The timing is fit for a movie plot climax!
Just as Trump announced intentions to get out of Syria, Assad did something unspeakable. According to Assad’s opposition, the Syrian government “once again” used chemicals weapons on civilians.
At a time when the war is almost won for Assad, he decided to re-ignite international calls for his ouster by senselessly murdering about the same number of civilians the Las Vegas Shooter killed. Seems logical, right?
Well, there goes the Syrian exit!
Amid uprisings in Libya and Egypt, in 2011 Syrians rebelled against their own oppressive government.
Documents from Wikileaks show that the U.S. State Department wanted to help rebels overthrow Syrian ruler Assad in order to strengthen Israel’s position against Iran.
Iran, Syria, and Russia are the main allies in the region with conflicting interests of the USA and Israel.
Turkey is harder to peg. They were once on decent terms with the Assad regime, then called for his ouster. Turkey helped train rebels, as well as the controversial rescue group the “White Helmets.”
Turkey considers the Kurds terrorists, while the U.S. arms and supports the Kurds who led the main assault on the Syrian stronghold of ISIS.
So Turkey and the U.S. are nominally on the “same side” when it comes to opposition to the Assad regime. But each country’s opposition is definitely not on the “same side” and are already fighting.
When the conflict started, the U.S. had already armed rebels in Libya to take out Gaddafi. Now they decided to transfer some recovered Libyan weapons to the Syrian rebels.
Some sources claim Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed in Libya while overseeing weapons transfers from Libya to Turkey and Syria to arm the rebels.
368 days ago, we were having this exact same discussion after the first alleged chemical attack by Assad on his own people. The Daily Mail reported but later recanted, information from a source who claimed that the U.S. planned a false flag chemical attack to justify military action in Syria.
Leaked emails have allegedly proved that the White House gave the green light to a chemical weapons attack in Syria that could be blamed on Assad’s regime and in turn, spur international military action in the devastated country.
CNN reported in 2012 that America was involved in training the rebels to secure and monitor chemical weapons sites.
