Skip to comments.Is Western Intervention In Syria Imminent?
Posted on 12/06/2012 3:11:01 PM PST by Laissez-faire capitalist
The NATO Alliance announced earlier this week that Patriot missles will be deployed in Turkey...
The USS Eisenhowser was reported to arrived in the area yesterday off the Syrian coast in the Mediterranean. It holds 8,000 soldiers and eight fighter bomber squandrons.
The U.S. Senate... has voted for the Pentagon to present military options available on Syria...

Go to Google News and Google “French troops Syria” or “British troops Syria”
Obama owns Harry Reid, who owns the Senate, so if Obama wants to help the Muslim rebels that is what will happen. He has already been caught running guns to them, got some people killed over it.
Obama is a strategic part of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Every good Hitler needs a SA. The Muslim Caliphate is the violent fall guy for the New World Order pukes. When they are done terrorizing the people into submission, they will be vaporized in nuclear fires so the NWO pukes can be the hero.
Then they will give their power over to a super leader...
Installing the mofobros everywhere.
“Obama is a strategic part of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
That’s right. The MB gave up OBL in exchange for control of the ME. They’re having trouble with Syria so BHO is going to use our military to open the way. It will be interesting to see what deal he made with Putin to allow this.
French troops Syria or British troops Syria
The Brits and French are going just to make it look NATO and for practice. We’ll do the heavy lifting.
What Putin needs to do is expose Obama’s perfidy in a reverse of the Cuban Missile Crisis. The Russian Ambassador to the UN takes recon photos of ex-Libya arms being unloaded in Turkey. They display photos of CIA personnel teaching New Syrian Army troops how to load, prepare, and fire chemical-tipped weapons in Turkey for deployment in Syria against Syrians. THAT could slam the brakes on World War III that Barry and Hillary are orchestrating.
If they send the 75,000 military in there to secure the chemical weapons, most of those will return with nerve disorders.
Speculated earlier in the year that Obama would let Putin complete his invasion of Georgia, but that seems like a weak deal now. Putin will want much more. Iran is more or less solid right now. The US has pulled many of its assets out of the Persian Gulf to positions off the Syrian coast. So if Iran wants Iraq, they could take it fairly easy now. The question is, what will Putin want.
In Dublin, talks among US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, her Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov and UN peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi failed to make any major decisions.
Brahimi said all three agreed the situation in Syria was "very, very, very bad".
It is according to if obama’s side is winning or losing.
Look up RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT. We’re going in, but why? Look up THE INTERNATIONAL CRISIS GROUP. See who is on their board. George Soros. This guy is a genius. He runs several countries while only costing him a few billion dollars. He gets us to do his dirty work by buying a few politicians. Poor Syria. They are the battleground over oil.
In a con game, the Grifter will often let the Marks believe that they are in charge. The Grifter plays on people’s arrogance and ignorance and naïveté. The Saudis are cutthroat when it comes to oil, but I wouldn’t bet much on their smarts in international affairs.
It is already a fact.The kenyan is running weaponry to the jihadists
Not one of our military people should be sacrificed for the Arab heathens! Not one!!!
In a post nuclear age, a World War has no Grifters and no Marks. There will be no winners.
Actually, given the US control of the Western World after WWII, the winner of WWIII runs the table: they get to create the ‘new reality’, and if they’re ruthless, it could last a very, very long time, think thousand year timeframe.
Sometimes I think this entire Sarin gas being mixed by Assad is just an excuse to get us involved. After all the story broke from NBC news.
‘The question is, what will Putin want.’
I think the simple answer to this is, he’ll want to keep the Russian naval base at Tartus. It’s enormously strategically important, being Russia’s only permanent naval base in the Mediterranean, or indeed anywhere outside the former USSR.
I’d expect some deal whereby the ‘Free Syrian Army’ agreed to allow the base to remain in place (initially, at least) in return for the Russians agreeing to turn a blind eye to whatever Obama eventually decides to do in Syria.
I don’t even believe the report about the gas. This was the necessary pretext.
The dangerous powers of the world unite as we sit on asses smoking pot and collecting our government checks.
Welcome to Obamaland 2012. :)
Deja Vu all over again. That was the deal that was supposed to brokered last time, but just a day or two later one of the rebel groups stated they would not allow the base. The force driving this entire intervention is the House Saud. And they are not very happy with the Russians supporting the Shiites.
I’m in Saudi Arabia right now. Papers here are full of ‘bloodthirsty tyrant continues to massacre own people as heroic fighters struggle on for freedom’ -type headlines. As compared to the reporting on the situation in Bahrain (Sunni minority elite, Shi’ite population - i.e. reverse of Syria) which is more along the lines of ‘bands of armed terrorists attack law enforcement forces in streets, as government struggles to maintain law and order’.
Whatever will assist the Muslim Brotherhood and get more of our troops killed, O’Beelzebub is all for it.
Wow. Good luck over there. If you see a bright flash of light, hit the ground. Just kidding. Yeah the old Sunni verses Shiite battle is heating up again. You really must feel like you are living in Orwells 1984 over there (we have always been at war with the Shia).
It’s not the most fun place in the world to be for a while, but it’s certainly interesting on some levels. It’s actually a lot calmer and more stable here now, than when I first visited back in 2004.
I spent a year in Damascus back in 2007-8, as well - completely different environment, of course, but a fascinating city - far preferable to Saudi on a quality-of-life basis from both a personal and cultural standpoint. At that time, of course. Not so much right now.
Yes only Holy Crusader Putin can save us! Only Putin can prove that the rebels are planning to gas themselves to make Assad look bad! Down with America! Go Putin! Go Russia!
However direct western involvement in Syria is about a hundred times dumber than the US adventure in nation building in Iraq. If BHO signs off on that one he is a lot dumber than I have thought he was.
The situation does not require our intervention because Turkey and the GCC are making progress. The prospect of Chemical weapons may require US very special trained forces for containment.
There is a strategic plan but we have not been provided details.
Direct US participation of any sort should be off the table. It might be interesting to see how competent the Syrians are to use their chemical weapons. Why all the high moral tone about chemical weapons anyway? Gassing is more inhumane than high explosives? Chemical weapons can be persistent nuisances but that is the problem of those on the ground not us.
In alliances, it is not necessary for all to have the same capabilities.
Turkey and the GCC are American allies and do not posses the chemical weapons expertise of America. If the weapons are captured, it will be prudent for our experts to take control of them and assure safe disposition.
