Syria’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari, on Jun 19 said:
“Condoleeza Rice called it “creative chaos” 10 years ago, as a justification of the American/British invasion of Iraq. This plan did not end, it’s continuous.
They broke down Libya, they broke down Egypt, they broke down Iraq, Yemen…and now it’s Syria’s turn. So, this is a geopolitical plan that is not only targeting Syria exclusively… although Syria is very important for either the success or failure of this plan… but it is targeting the whole area. Ultimately speaking, the main goal is to secure, for a long time and a very long range, the interests of Israel and prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state in Palestine.
So they need to open up a new front, a kind of deviation from the focus on the “Arab-Israeli conflict” and the Palestinian question, to another focus which might be, a war between Muslims and Muslims, they call it Sunni and Shia, but it’s not a war between Sunnis and Shiites, it’s a war against Iran and Iraq, against Iran in Syria, against Iran in Lebanon, against Iran in Yemen, against Iran in Egypt…
The success of the elections and the unprecedented popular mobilization in favour of organizing the elections and in favour of President Assad, is a message sent by the Syrian people to all over the world that: ‘guys, do not interfere in our domestic affairs,’ Our message would be a friendly message… We want to have friends, not enemies. We are not seeking any animosity with anybody. We want to have friends and we want to have normal bi-lateral relationships with everybody. We do not interfere into American domestic affairs. Please, do not interfere into our domestic affairs.”

Car bomb explodes in Hama killing 34 Syrians, Jun 20, 2014, Press TV
At least 34 people have been killed and more than 50 others injured after a car bomb explosion, claimed by foreign-backed Takfiri terrorists, rocked the al-Hurra village in the central Syrian province of Hama.
The car bomb went off on Friday morning in the al-Hurra village in Hama city countryside.
A coalition of terrorist-affiliated groups calling itself “the Islamic Front” has claimed responsibility for the attack.
On Thursday, a car bomb exploded in the city of Homs, to the south of Hama, killing at least six people. The bombing was the second attack in Homs – Syria’s third largest city – in less than a week.
The Fall of Iraq – What You’re Not Being Told, Jun 17, 2014, SCG News
…ISIS, whose stated goal is to erase the border between Syria and Iraq, to establish an Islamic Caliphate encompassing both countries, and to impose sharia law, already holds vast swaths of territory, and they are rapidly gaining ground.
How did this happen?
That’s an extremely important question. How you answer it will determine what comes next, and not just in Iraq. That’s why the media spin doctors and politicians are out in force attempting to rewrite history, and turning reality completely on its head in the process.
For example we have people insisting this is happening because the U.S. and NATO failed to intervene in Syria.
Well that’s a convenient answer isn’t it?
The U.S. and NATO have been actively working to topple Assad by arming and funding the Syrian rebels since 2011. This has developed into a bloody civil war which has attracted Jihadists from all over the world. It has also created a vacuum of power which enabled groups like ISIS, Al-Qaeda and Al-Nusra to organize and establish physical strongholds.
The U.S. claims to only be arming the “moderate” rebels, however, the leadership of the Free Syrian Army (aka the FSA) has stated that they regularly carry out joint operations with Al-Qaeda and its affiliates. Up until recently ISIS was a branch of Al-Qaeda. In February of this year Al-Qaeda’s official leadership publicly disavowed ISIS due to their brutal tactics. That’s why ISIS is referred to as a splinter group. Furthermore, we know for a fact that the majority of the weapons and funding from the U.S. and its allies are ending up in the hands of Jihadists, and U.S. officials have been aware of this since 2012. But don’t take my word for it, go read this article from the New York Times yourself.
Do the math folks. ISIS would have never gotten a foothold Syria if the U.S. hadn’t weakened the Syrian government, and the weapons they are using right now… were most likely paid for with your tax dollars.
But wait, this isn’t just about Syria is it? It’s also about Iraq. Which brings us to the other deranged narrative that is being promoted right now: that this chaos is unfolding because U.S. military withdrew prematurely in 2011.
You see Iraq is in ruins and unable to defend itself, because the U.S. military left the party too early. It’s not because the Bush administration and the mainstream media convinced the public that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and was planning to use them. It’s not because the U.S. invaded Iraq on these false pretenses, disbanding the Iraqi army and police, and reducing the country to rubble in an attempt to put down the resulting insurgency. No, it’s because eight years of military occupation wasn’t enough….
…Before NATO brought down Gaddafi Libya had the highest standard of living in all of Africa. Now it’s a perpetual war-zone. And of course we’ve seen how Obama has funded and armed the Syrian rebels in an attempt to bring down Assad.
The pattern of deceit was the same, but this time the people didn’t fall for it. The fact that we had the U.N. investigator Carla Del Ponte come out to say that the Syrian rebels were behind the sarin gas attacks helped, the fact that Putin short circuited the U.S. diplomatically helped, but the determining factor was the popular resistance, particularly the signs of discontent from within the military. You see, the ruling class is very hesitant to take a nation to war if the people and the military strongly oppose it. That’s why the first casualty of war is always the truth.
What’s going on in Iraq right now is horrific. ISIS is already committing atrocities against civilians on a massive scale. Inexplicably the Obama administration did not provide the Iraqi military with immediate air support even after the fall of Mosul. I say inexplicably, not because I support airstrikes, but because on June 12th, the U.S. Military conducted its second drone strike this month in Pakistan. Why would Obama refuse to act in Iraq when civilians are being massacred, while employing drones in Pakistan without hesitation?
I’ll tell you why. Because the outrage over the atrocities that the ISIS is committing may be enough to provide the U.S. government with a backdoor into Syria.
You see It turns out that Obama is considering airstrikes, but not just in Iraq. He wants to extend those strikes into Syria as well. Well, that’s convenient isn’t it? Once the U.S. military is able to freely conduct operations in Syrian territory getting the regime change that they will be much, much easier.
It’s the classic formula Problem, Reaction, Solution.
They created the problem, they are letting the public react and build up outrage, and then they are going to propose a “solution” that will sow the seeds for another generation of conflicts.
To short circuit this pattern the public needs to come to terms with the cold hold hard truth.
No matter what the U.S. does, and no matter how long they stay, there is no happy ending to this story. The chaos that we’re seeing in this region is the direct result of half a century of U.S. military interventions and covert operations in the Middle East. It’s time to acknowledge that bombing for peace doesn’t work, regime change for stability doesn’t work, and you can’t fix a mistake by repeating it over and over.
If the U.S. honestly wants to stop the spread of Islamic terrorism, then they should stop funding and arming Jihadists in Syria. That would be a good starting point don’t you think?
US-Sponsored Terrorism in Iraq and “Constructive Chaos” in the Middle East, Jun 19, 2014, Global Research
Iraq is once again front page news. And once again the picture that is presented to us in the Western mainstream media is a mixture of half truths, falsehoods, disinformation and propaganda. The mainstream media will not tell you that the US is supporting both sides in the Iraqi conflict. Washington is overtly supporting the Iraqi Shiite government, while covertly training, arming and funding the Sunni Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Supporting the influx of terrorist brigades in Iraq is an act of foreign aggression. But the mainstream media will tell you that the Obama administration is “concerned” by the actions committed by the terrorists.
What is unfolding is a process of “constructive chaos”, engineered by the West. The destabilization of Iraq and its fragmentation has been planned long ago and is part of the ”Anglo-American-Israeli ‘military road map’ in the Middle East”, as explained in 2006 in the following article:
“This project, which has been in the planning stages for several years, consists in creating an arc of instability, chaos, and violence extending from Lebanon, Palestine, and Syria to Iraq, the Persian Gulf, Iran, and the borders of NATO-garrisoned Afghanistan.
The ‘New Middle East’ project was introduced publicly by Washington and Tel Aviv with the expectation that Lebanon would be the pressure point for realigning the whole Middle East and thereby unleashing the forces of “constructive chaos.” This “constructive chaos” –which generates conditions of violence and warfare throughout the region– would in turn be used so that the United States, Britain, and Israel could redraw the map of the Middle East in accordance with their geo-strategic needs and objectives. …
The redrawing and partition of the Middle East from the Eastern Mediterranean shores of Lebanon and Syria to Anatolia (Asia Minor), Arabia, the Persian Gulf, and the Iranian Plateau responds to broad economic, strategic and military objectives, which are part of a longstanding Anglo-American and Israeli agenda in the region…
A wider war in the Middle East could result in redrawn borders that are strategically advantageous to Anglo-American interests and Israel…
Attempts at intentionally creating animosity between the different ethno-cultural and religious groups of the Middle East have been systematic. In fact, they are part of a carefully designed covert intelligence agenda.
Even more ominous, many Middle Eastern governments, such as that of Saudi Arabia, are assisting Washington in fomenting divisions between Middle Eastern populations. The ultimate objective is to weaken the resistance movement against foreign occupation through a “divide and conquer strategy” which serves Anglo-American and Israeli interests in the broader region.” (Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya, Plans for Redrawing the Middle East: The Project for a “New Middle East”, November 2006)
Although the divide and conquer strategy is not new, it still works thanks to the media smoke screens and mirrors.
Engineering a civil war is the best way to divide a country into several territories. It worked in the Balkans and it is well documented that ethnic tensions were used and abused in order to destroy Yugoslavia and divide it into seven separate entities.
Today we are clearly witnessing the balkanization of Iraq with the help of the favorite imperial tool, namely armed militias, referred to as pro-democracy opposition or terrorists depending on the context and the role they have to play in the collective psyche.
Western media and government officials define them not by who they are, but by who they fight against. In Syria they constitute a “legitimate opposition, freedom fighters fighting for democracy against a brutal dictatorship”, whereas in Iraq, they are “terrorists fighting a democratically elected U.S.-supported government”:
“Known and documented, Al Qaeda affiliated entities have been used by US-NATO in numerous conflicts as ‘intelligence assets’ since the heyday of the Soviet-Afghan war. In Syria, the Al Nusrah and ISIS rebels are the foot-soldiers of the Western military alliance, which oversees and controls the recruitment and training of paramilitary forces.
The decision was taken by Washington to channel its support (covertly) in favor of a terrorist entity which operates in both Syria and Iraq and which has logistical bases in both countries. The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham’s Sunni caliphate project coincides with a longstanding US agenda to carve up both Iraq and Syria into three separate territories: A Sunni Islamist Caliphate, an Arab Shia Republic, and a Republic of Kurdistan.
Whereas the (US proxy) government in Baghdad purchases advanced weapons systems from the US including F16 fighter jets from Lockheed Martin, the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham –which is fighting Iraqi government forces– is supported covertly by Western intelligence. The objective is to engineer a civil war in Iraq, in which both sides are controlled indirectly by US-NATO.
The scenario is to arm and equip them, on both sides, finance them with advanced weapons systems and then ‘let them fight’…
Under the banner of a civil war, an undercover war of aggression is being fought which essentially contributes to further destroying an entire country, its institutions, its economy. The undercover operation is part of an intelligence agenda, an engineered process which consists in transforming Iraq into an open territory.
Meanwhile, public opinion is led to believe that what is at stake is confrontation between Shia and Sunni.” (Michel Chossudovsky, The Engineered Destruction and Political Fragmentation of Iraq. Towards the Creation of a US Sponsored Islamist Caliphate, June 14, 2014)
We knew well before the beginning of the war on terror that Saudi Arabia was a major supporter of Islamic terrorism. But being a staunch U.S. ally Saudi Arabia is the exception to the rule proclaimed by George W. Bush after the 9/11 terrorist attacks: ”We will make no distinction between those who committed these acts and those who harbor them.”
