Western Special Forces Working With Death Squads in Syria

A new report by the British Mirror magazine has revealed that British special forces are now operating inside Syria in preparation for the “expected response” of cruise missiles and RAF bombing campaigns which will take place alongside the Americans and possibly the French.

The British special forces are allegedly in country in order to search out Syrian missiles and anti-aircraft weaponry as well as ammunition depots and military installations for potential targeting and evasion once the attacks begin. The special forces agents currently working inside Syria include the SAS, Special Boat Service, Special Reconnaissance Regiment, and MI6.

The Mirror writes[1] that some of the most important targets of the special forces are the Syrian government’s long-range mobile missile batteries due to the fear that they will be used against Western jets once the bombing campaign begins.

The Mirror quotes a “military source” as saying, “It is vital they find every missile site that could threaten British ships or RAF jets and they will probably be taken out by missiles fired from offshore. The risk of capture to these special forces units is off the scale and nobody can be trusted in Syria.”


The report also states,
Spies have already found scores of major military installations and ammo dumps in the war-stricken country. 
Now the British military is waiting for the political green light as it prepares to act. 
A huge force of Royal Navy warships and RAF jets could be called into action if MPs vote for air and sea strikes. 
But it is likely any attack would involve a small number of precision missile strikes, launched from outside Syria. 
The Navy will spearhead any UK operation against Assad, followed by the RAF, both working with US and French forces, but regular troops will not be sent in. 
It is thought nuclear submarine HMS Tireless has been repositioned in the Mediterranean in readiness to launch Tomahawk cruise missiles against Assad’s military.
Yet, while the participation of Western intelligence agencies and special forces might be news to some, the fact is that such operations have been taking place since the beginning of the Syrian crisis in 2011.
Indeed, a recent article[2] from French newspaper Le Figaro reports that American, Israeli, and Jordanian commandos crossed the Syrian border only days before the chemical attack in Eastern Ghouta which the West has ridiculously attempted to blame on Assad. As Le Figaro reported, “According to our information, the regime’s opponents, supervised by Jordanian, Israeli, and American commandos moving towards Damascus since mid-August.”

The report also stated that “the first trained in guerrilla warfare by the Americans in Jordan, Syrian [rebel] troops reportedly entered into action since mid-August in southern Syria, in the region of Deraa. A first group of 300 men, probably supported by Israeli and Jordanian commandos, as well as men of the CIA, had crossed the border on August 17.”

In other words, no more than three days before the chemical attacks in Eastern Ghouta, which all evidence shows was the handiwork of the death squads, 300 trained “rebels” and possibly Western special forces themselves were advancing toward Damascus.

The contingents apparently were deployed[3] in two waves with the second group of fighters entering the Daraa region on August 19th.

This, of course, was not the only report of Western special forces troops being discovered operating inside Syria. Indeed, it was reported early on[4]in the Syrian destabilization effort that 13 French military officers[5] acting as mercenaries/death squad participants were captured by the Syrian government, all the while the mainstream Western media reported the events as “peaceful protest” and a grassroots level organic Syrian uprising against an oppressive regime.

It was also reported by Israeli news agency DEBKAfile, a site with known intelligence connections, that British and Qatari troops were actually on the ground in Homs, Syria as early as February, 2012. As RT reported at the time,[6]
British and Qatari troops are directing rebel ammunition deliveries and tactics in the bloody battle for Homs, according to an Israeli website known for links to intelligence sources. 
Four centers of operation have been established in the city with the troops on the ground paving the way for an undercover Turkish military incursion into Syria. 
The debkafile site said the presence of British and Qatari troops in Homs topped the agenda of Tuesday’s talks between Assad’s officials and head of Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service Mikhail Fradkov.
Around the same time, hacked emails obtained by Anonymous in December 2011[7] and released by WikiLeaks in steady drips ever since February 27, 2012, revealed that NATO troops, including those from the U.S., U.K, and France, were likely already operating inside Syria.

The emails were obtained from the private U.S. intelligence firm, Stratfor, and were apparently sent by Stratfor’s Director of Analysis, Reva Bhalla (bhalla@stratfor.com) and contain discussion of a December confidential Pentagon meeting which was attended “by senior analysts from the US Air Force, and representatives from its chief allies, France and the United Kingdom.

Tellingly, the email’s author stated that US officials “said without saying that SOF [special operation forces] teams (presumably from the US, UK, France, Jordan and Turkey) are already on the ground, focused on recce [reconnaissance] missions and training opposition forces.” Later in the email, it was stated that “the idea 'hypothetically' is to commit guerrilla attacks, assassination campaigns, try to break the back of the Alawite forces, elicit collapse from within.”

This should come as no surprise since Western troops and intelligence agents maintained a heavy presence[8] inside Libya during the destruction of that nation, increasing their presence as the destabilization and subsequent invasion succeeded.

In addition to Western forces, numerous reports have also suggested the presence of Israeli special forces operating inside Syria on a limited basis. For instance, in December 2012, it was reported by the London Sunday Times[9] that Israeli special forces were operating inside Syria “as spotters to track the regime’s stock of chemical and biological weapons.”

In May, 2013, however, Israeli commandos were recorded[10] and later broadcast on FOX news coming back from a mission inside Syria, although the nature of the mission was never expanded upon.

Of course, in addition to commandos on the ground, it is important to remember that Israel has launched at least three military air strikes[11] against the Middle Eastern nation since the crisis began.

All in all, it should be increasingly apparent to anyone who has even passively observed the Syrian crisis that it is nothing more than a Western-backed destabilization campaign aimed at wrecking the secular government and the sovereignty of the nation, breaking up the country into an impotent collection of micro-states and mini-states. For that reason, it should come as no shock that Western special forces have been and currently are working inside Syria to aid the death squads in their mission.

With the Western world salivating to launch a military assault on Syria which will inevitably kill hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians, it is important for all Americans to not only actively expose such blatant hypocrisy and treachery, but to actively oppose it.

Our window of opportunity is closing.

NOTE: In times such as these, it is important that we share as many sources of information as possible so as to increase public awareness as well as the likelihood that this awareness will turn to action.

I wish those who speak of US using spec ops would not call them Special Forces because to do so thakes away the honorable conduct of our " Special Forces up until 1968 when the civilians killers took over running that branch of militaryTodays spec ops are no more than killers.high paid mercenary assassins.
THEY ARE A MILITARY WARRIOR CULT THAT WORSHIPS GORE AND MAYHEM
The early Special Forces tried to elevate and free peoples from those that act just as US military and civilian criminalsthat the Sic; warriors work for.
THE MONTGNSRD REBELLION IS A GOOD CASE.
THE CIA AND MILITARY ASS KISSERS SAID THE SPECIAL FORCES ALLIES AMONG THE HILL TRIBES SHOULD BE ABANDONED, JUST WALK AWAY AND FORGET THEM.
THIS DAMN NEAR BECAME AN IN COUNTRY REVOLT BY OUR DPECIAL FORCES THAT WANTED TO TSKE ON THR DAMNED COMPLETELY CORRUPY VIVILIAN SNF MILITARY THAT WALKED OUT OF CPUNTRY WITH BAGS OF MONEY OR SPECIAL BANKING FOR OFFICERS cIA and US State drig and sextrade money.
THE OLD SPECIAL FORCES BUILT THE CREATIVE ABILITY OF THE NATIVE POPULATIONS SO THEY CPULD SURVIVE.
THEY WERE NOT JUST FN KILLERS WITH HRAINS OF SHIT LKE TODAY.
IThey came from many nations but were mainly citizen soldiers that served.a nation with honor and knew what honor was.
IN 1969 there began an exit of good honorable men that could not stand te new emphasis which was to cause chaos and killing to instigate conflicts so they could kill even more in prder for political and economic bosses.
The old guard would question legalitys and had a form of compassion whete as the new litte boys had no idea. Of honor and wouldn't care if legal or not. It is the thrill of yhe kill and the rewards that matter tofay.

I notice that Brandon makes no comment about Iran"s rev guard or Hezbala. So if your pro Iran than your good, if your anti Iran than you're a death squad. I think in reality, Syria is just the playground in which all the big kids (Sunni vs Shite, East vs West, etc)fight.

It is a game and no more to those far from fields of destruction.
And yet among man there are those who love to be close, to kill or cause death is their existence, and they are the perfect tools for those from far away.
The legality of such mayhem is an added beauty for now those wjo enjoy their work need fear no repercussions from their atrocitys and lust to kill excesses.
Where collateral damage of uncounted thousands do not cost the perpetrators any concerns if they can claim it was in interest of National Security.
We send out sniper teams in foreign lands to kill people from vast distances. The further and even less distinguishing the target is the more the glory.
So much so that today in Afghanistan US individuals have killed thouands more men women and children than the total of all al Q killed in the whole world to date. SNIPERS WITH HUNDREDS OF KILLS, ASSASSINATIONS IN REALITY NOT COMBAT ACTIONS, WITH CLAIMS OFTEN APPROACHING A THOUSAND INDIVIDUAL TARGETS.
This is murder incorporated on a nationsl payrol that does not care where a target is, if they want it dead.it is dead.
And all this leads the unscrupulous and greediest most criminal elements in mankind hide behind the Gacades of Nationalism and Patriotism; all to serverve their carnal natures.

You guys are so ignorant....if any TCOs (transnational criminal orgs) get their hands on that gas, we will see much worse death and destruction than we saw on 9/11...

Dont you people get it??? We NEED to intervene. Not because we are the world police, but because these weapons are not properly guarded (not to mention being used now).....So stop acting so uneducated and acting as though these Brown-professor types who think all war is America's fault are correct. Start thinking about the millions we are maybe saving by QUIETLY (not bombing the holy hell out of Syria...we aren't massacring them!!! relax!) removing problematic actors from the scene so that these awful weapons can be disposed of.

The SAS and Delta do this best...Stop whining and let them do their job. They specialize in NOT causing collateral damage and killing innocent people..they train for it every day. I've met private contractors (who were Delta back in the late 90s) and they saved more lives in more countries than you could even fathom.

Enough with all this "we are over patriotic and murdering bunches of American lunatics"....UGH...your rhetoric gets soooooo OLD....even to your own brethren.
