Expanded Conflict in Syria Promised by Romney Will Proceed Under
Most irrelevant election in US history comes and goes as
long-planned regime change using Al Qaeda death squads against
Syria continues unabated.

November 07, 2012 "Information
- Almost as if to affirm
the absolute irrelevance of elections in the "democratic"
West, expanded conflict promised by the perceived "hawkish"
Republican candidate Mitt Romney is proceeding immediately ahead
under the re-elected President Barack Obama. Aside from
superficial window dressing via an elaborate array of proxies
through which US cash and weapons will flow, more direct
military aid, including securing a defacto no-fly zone over
parts of northern Syria using US-made Patriot missile batteries
is now being discussed.

NATO Source Alliance News Blog reported on November 4, 2012,
"Turkey plans to officially request NATO deploy a Patriot
missile defense system in its territories as a security
precaution against a potential large-scale military offensive
from Syria as Syrian shelling on the border raises tensions."
Now this request is being re-purposed to enact a defacto "no fly
zone" over northern Syria - illustrating the duplicitous nature
of reports/initiatives coming out of NATO members as they once
again attempt to creep their way toward unwarranted military
The Associated Press (AP) claims in their article titled, "Obama
Re-Election Signals New Phase in Syria War," that "Turkey
and allies, including the United States, have discussed the
possibility of using Patriot missiles to protect a safe zone
inside Syria." This, it is claimed, would only be implemented
with a UN mandate. Such a mandate is unlikely, with Russia and
China having obstructed all efforts to justify Libya-style
military aggression against Syria. Additional cross-border
incidents will most likely be used as a pretext instead.
Secretary Clinton Handpicks Client Syrian Regime at Meeting
in Despotic Nation of Qatar.
Meanwhile US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is attempting to
gestate a newly handpicked proxy regime to pose as the
leadership of NATO armed, funded, and directed terrorists
currently ravaging Syria within and across its borders.
Ironically, this is occurring in Doha, Qatar, one of the most
despotic regimes on Earth, and one of a handful of remaining
While Western governments and the Western press have attempted
to portray the violence in Syria as the result of indigenous
"pro-democracy" aspirations, it is clear that not only is the
violence driven by sectarian extremists - many of whom are not
even Syrian, its leaders are merely handpicked proxies of the
West, contradicting any concept of "self-determination" one
might associate with "democracy."
UK's Prime Minister Cries Freedom for Syria, Then Arms
Despotic Autocracies to Teeth.
UK Prime Minister David Cameron is likewise in the Middle East,
pledging tens of millions in cash to foreign terrorists
operating inside Syria
in an effort to ""shape the opposition'' into a coherent
force and open channels of communication directly with rebel
military commanders," while making arms deals with certifiably
despotic regimes lining the Persian Gulf.

Saudis and the UAE seek additional Typhoon aircraft as part of
astronomically large weapons deals being made with the West as
of late. The hypocrisy of arming terrorists for "freedom" in
Syria, while the West arms regimes like the Saudis currently
slaughtering protesters both at home, and in neighboring
Bahrain, has forced even Amnesty International to make a
statement, albeit an ineffectual one.
Even Amnesty International was forced to recognize the overt
hypocrisy of a British prime minister selling despotic regimes
deadly weapons systems almost assuredly to be turned on their
own people, while citing a moral imperative to justify
supporting violent regime change in Syria.
Amnesty International stated:
Responding to news of the Prime Minister David Cameron’s
visit to the United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Saudi
Arabia to promote UK arms sales, Amnesty International UK’s
Head of Policy and Government Affairs Allan Hogarth said:
“Selling arms to countries like Saudi Arabia and UAE should
only be considered if there are absolutely watertight
guarantees over them not being used to commit human rights
“Saudi Arabia has been the recipient of record-breaking arms
deals involving the UK, yet these have been highly secretive
and there’s been little or no follow-up over how the
weaponry was used.
example, in 2009 the Saudi air force used UK-supplied
Tornado fighter-bombers in attacks in Yemen which killed
hundreds - possibly thousands - of civilians. In one attack
conducted by Saudi forces on the town of al-Nadir in
November 2009, so many were killed in just one extended
family that witnesses say the family ‘had to create a
cemetery for themselves’.
than two years ago we called for the UK government to
urgently investigate Saudi Arabia’s involvement in this
episode and meanwhile suspend any further arms supplies to
the past a large Saudi chequebook has apparently meant it
could purchase weapons as well as silence over its own
dreadful human rights record. It’s time for David Cameron to
end this deeply disturbing trade-off.”
Saudi Arabia, US, and Israel had Planned Overthrow of Syria via
Al Qaeda Since 2007.
Saudi Arabia, of course, is using their weapons and cash flow
from the West to not only to brutalize their own people, but to
seed the Muslim World with madrases designed to indoctrinate an
army of sectarian extremists, arm and fund them, and use them
across the Muslim World to execute Western and Saudi foreign
policy. The very same networks used by the US and Saudi Arabia
to flood Afghanistan in the 1980's with militants to fight the
Soviets, and again during the US-British occupation of Iraq and
Afghanistan, are now being used
to flood Syria with foreign terrorists.
A plan by the US, Israel, and Saudis to use sectarian extremists
against Syria, many directly associated with Al Qaeda itself,
was first exposed by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour
Hersh in his 2007 New Yorker report titled, ""The
Redirection: Is the Administration's new policy benefiting our
enemies in the war on terrorism?"
In the report it specifically stated:
undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush
Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its
priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the
Administration has coöperated with Saudi Arabia’s
government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that
are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization
that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in
clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A
by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of
Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of
Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al
Redirection, Seymour Hersh (2007)
report would continue by stating:
"the Saudi government, with Washington’s approval, would
provide funds and logistical aid to weaken the government of
President Bashir Assad, of Syria. The Israelis believe that
putting such pressure on the Assad government will make it
more conciliatory and open to negotiations." -The
Redirection, Seymour Hersh (2007)
between extremist groups and Saudi funding was also mentioned in
the report, and reflects evidence regarding the origin and
backers of similar extremists who flooded Iraq during the US
occupation, sowing sectarian strife and killing Western troops
"...[Saudi Arabia's] Bandar and other Saudis have assured
the White House that “they will keep a very close eye on the
religious fundamentalists. Their message to us was ‘We’ve
created this movement, and we can control it.’ It’s not that
we don’t want the Salafis to throw bombs; it’s who
they throw them at—Hezbollah, Moqtada al-Sadr, Iran, and at
the Syrians, if they continue to work with Hezbollah and

Terrorism Center's 2007 report, "Al-Qa'ida's
Foreign Fighters in Iraq" indicated which areas in Syria Al
Qaeda fighters filtering into Iraq came from. The overwhelming
majority of them came from Dayr Al-Zawr in Syria's southeast,
Idlib in the north near the Turkish-Syrian border, and Dar'a in
the south near the Jordanian-Syrian border. (Right) A map
indicating the epicenters of violence in Syria indicate that the
exact same hotbeds for Al Qaeda in 2007, now serve as the
epicenters of so-called "pro-democracy fighters."
The most prominent routes into Syria for foreign fighters is
depicted, with the inset graph describing the most widely used
routes by foreign fighters on their way to Iraq, as determined
by West Point's 2007 Combating Terrorism Center report "Al-Qa'ida's
Foreign Fighters in Iraq" (page 20). These same networks
are now being used, with the addition of a more prominent role
for Turkey, to target Syria directly. (Click to enlarge)
It was exposed in "NATO
Using Al Qaeda Rat Lines to Flood Syria With Foreign Terrorists,"
that indeed, the very networks used by Al Qaeda to flood Iraq
with foreign fighters is now being used by the United States,
NATO and the Persian Gulf States of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to
violently overthrow Syria.
Mitt Romney's Warmongering Promises to be Fulfilled by
Reelected President Obama.
While Americans, and the world in general, are expected to
believe that elections directly affect a nation's policy, it is
clear that foreign policy objectives versus Syria were
determined long before President Obama took office, and have
continued despite whatever alleged political ideology he
supposedly adheres to. While many may be disappointed by the
loss of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, within
hours of President Obama's reelection, already a pledge made by
Romney is being fulfilled by his opponent.
