At a conference in Geneva this past weekend, the UN brokered “deal” for the “creation of a transitional national unity government” made the illusion to executive powers given to Syria. Russian representatives asserted that Assad should be part of the interim administration.
The ultimate transitional government would also oversee the drafting of a new Syrian Constitution and advise the electoral process.
The international community, headed by the UN has agreed to devise a scheme to remove Assad from the Syrian government and chose his successor by “mutual consent”. Several opposition groups in Syria are vying for representatives that might replace Assad.
Bassma Kodmani, spokesperson for the SNC states that the agreement is not assertive enough and lacks clear mechanisms for the regime change. Kodmani claims that the use of the UN Security Council (UNSC) during the “transition” should not be led by Assad.
Kodmani, who was a participant in the recent Bilderberg meeting in Chantilly, Virginia, has been pushing for an armed attack on Syria.
Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of State displayed optimism at Assad’s removal. Clinton assured the conference attendees that Assad and his inner circle would not be allowed to participate in the “transitional government”.
Clinton, who has blamed Russia for their involvement in the US and UN’s efforts to force Assad out of power, says they have finally joined the US in backing the regime change. “They have committed to trying,” she said. “But they also admitted that they may or may not have enough leverage to convince not just one man, but a family and a regime that their time is over.”
Sergey Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister remarked that Russian “will be only glad to support [a Syrian regime change].”
In Geneva, UN representative Kofi Annan’s six-point peace plan was recommended once more for immediate implementation as facilitation for a cease-fire. Annan said that the plan could include members of the current Syrian regime theoretically. Annan said to the audience:
I think people who have blood on their hands are hopefully not the only people in Syria. I think the government will have to be formed through discussion, negotiations, and by mutual consent. And I will doubt that the Syrians — who have fought so hard for their independence, to be able to say how they’re governed and who governs them — will select people with blood on their hands to lead them.
War with Syria has begun covertly. Turkey has mobilized large numbers of troops “including at least 15 long-range artillery pieces and tanks – moved to the Syrian frontier from the eastern city of Diyarbakir.”
Ron Paul has been forthcoming in saying that the “Pentagon indeed has finalized plans” to attack Syria. Paul explains that Syria poses no “national security concerns” to America “that require such a foolish escalation of violence in the Middle East. There should be no doubt that our security interests are best served by completely staying out of the internal strife now raging in Syria.”
CNN affirmed Paul’s assertion by reporting that the Pentagon has “finalized its assessment of what types of units would be needed, how many troops, and even the cost of certain potential operations.” An anonymous member of the Obama administration claims: “There is a sense that if the sectarian violence in Syria grows, it could be worse than what we saw in Iraq.”
Just as with the attack on Libya, the US armed forces will use a no-fly zone, while simultaneously overseeing biological and chemical strategic sites. Central banking controlled nations like the US, Britain and France have discussed the war action against Syria. They have come together in training and “sharing of intelligence about what is happening in Syria with neighboring countries including Jordan, Turkey and Israel.”
Preparatory air strikes against Syria have been planned by the Obama administration. Both the US Navy and Air Force, participating in the no-fly zone with the British and French armed forces have “Their mission to knock out Assad’s central regime and military command centers so as to shake regime stability and restrict Syrian army and air force activity for subduing rebel action and wreaking violence on civilian populations.”
This use of UN military is without Congressional approval and an affront to the Constitutional guidelines of our American Republic. However, since Obama receives his military orders from the UN and NATO, he must feel justified in his unabashed use of our armed forces.
