Ah! Regime change! Syria under the guns just as PNAC scheduled.
In 1996, Richard Perle, Douglas Feith and David Wurmser, joined in a report to the newly elected Likud government in Israel calling for "a clean break" with the policies of negotiating with the Palestinians and trading land for peace. They said "Israel can shape its strategic environment…by weakening, containing and even rolling back Syria. This effort can focus on removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq…Iraq's future could affect the strategic balance in the Middle East profoundly." They called for "reestablishing the principle of preemption."
"Change toward democratic regimes in Tehran and Baghdad would unleash a tsunami across the Islamic world," claimed Joshua Muravchik in August of that year. Michael Ledeen on September 4, 2002, called for the US to launch "a vast democratic revolution to liberate all the peoples of the Middle East…It is impossible to imagine that the Iranian people would tolerate tyranny in their own country once freedom had come to Iraq. Syria would follow in short order."
Now they begin to ratchet up the international tensions between East and West, Syria and its difficulties (primarily manufactured by the West which is under the Zionist spell) being the bone of contention. For the first time, more or less, we are beginning to see major cracks regarding international diplomacy appear and the public vilification of China and Russia by the Zionist led media, the reactions of the Zionist pawns, are finally showing.
Beijing and Moscow have both taken issue with the draft's vague wording, which they say leaves the door open for possible international military intervention in Syria and creates a picture of the current situation that favors opposition forces over the Assad government.
“Unfortunately, some of our colleagues choose to make rather bizarre interpretations of the Russian proposals,” the Russian UN Ambassador said.
“There is no rule that the Security Council should repeat verbatim all resolutions adopted by the original organizations. They are neither Koran nor Bible, and we can express our own views on texts adopted month ago.”
Mohamad says “there was a very good chance this week to find a draft that could satisfy all sides – but it was not supported by Western countries.””The Arab league initiative, supported by the Security Council, wants to portray an image where the problem is between Assad and the Syrian people, but this is not the reality.”Instead, Mohamad says, the problem lies between opposing parts of Syrian society ~ and has nothing to do with Assad's removal.
