As with all atrocities committed with impeccable timing to be paraded out before the world on the eve of pivotal UN meetings, little more than "activist" hearsay is used to condemn the Syrian government to more foreign pressure and edge it ever closer to a US-engineered sectarian war planned as early as 2007. Kofi Annan as well, after posing as "peacemaker" for months, finally dropped all pretenses and credibility to "blame" the Syrian government for the failure of his plan ~ a deceitful ploy from the very beginning.
"The United States might still arm the opposition even knowing they will probably never have sufficient power, on their own, to dislodge the Assad network. Washington might choose to do so simply in the belief that at least providing an oppressed people with some ability to resist their oppressors is better than doing nothing at all, even if the support provided has little chance of turning defeat into victory. Alternatively, the United States might calculate that it is still worthwhile to pin down the Assad regime and bleed it, keeping a regional adversary weak, while avoiding the costs of direct intervention." ~ pages 8-9, Assessing Options for Regime Change, Brookings Institution.
it is rather a proxy war being fought against Iran, and by extension, Russia.
It should be remembered that NATO's intervention saw the unfolding in reality of the atrocities falsely attributed to Qaddafi in the lead up to the war.
However, the fact that punitive measures are already being leveled against Syria before UN monitors can even examine the latest alleged "massacre" let alone conduct an investigation and draw objective conclusions as to who in fact was responsible, illustrates not the illegitimacy of the Syrian government, as UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon maintains, but the illegitimacy of the United Nations itself.
US policy makers at Brookings Institution declared their intentions to "bleed" Syria. And now Ban Ki-moon concedes,"the Syrian people are bleeding."
