US To Begin Invasion
US policymakers sign and date paper calling for the division,
destruction, and US occupation of Syria.

Unbeknownst to the general public, their elected
politicians do not create the policy that binds their national
destiny domestically or within the arena of geopolitics. Instead,
corporate-financier funded think tanks do – teams of unelected
policymakers which transcend elections, and which produce papers
that then become the foundation of legislation rubber stamped by
“legislators,” as well as the enumerated talking points repeated ad
naseum by the corporate-media.
Such a policy paper
has been recently written by the notorious US policy think-tank, the
Brookings Institution, titled, “Deconstructing
Syria: Towards a regionalized strategy for a confederal country.”
The signed and dated open-conspiracy to divide, destroy, then
incrementally occupy a sovereign nation thousands of miles from
America’s shores serves as a sobering example of how dangerous and
enduring modern imperialism is, even in the 21st century.
US Poured Billions Into “Moderates” Who Don’t Exist
The document openly admits that the US has provided
billions in arming and training militants fed into the devastating
and increasingly regional conflict. It admits that the US maintains
– and should expand – operations in Jordan and NATO-member Turkey to
provide even more weapons, cash, and fighters to the already
It then recounts the rise of the so-called “Islamic
State” (ISIS), but fails to account from where its money, cash, and
weapons came. It should be obvious to readers that if the United
States has committed billions in cash, weapons, and training on
multiple fronts to alleged “moderates” who for all intents and
purposes do not exist on the battlefield, a state-sponsor of greater
magnitude would be required to create and sustain ISIS and Al
Qaeda’s Al Nusra Front who Brookings admits dominates the
ISIS’ supply lines lead right into US operational zones in
Turkey and Jordan, because it was ISIS and Al Qaeda all along that
the West planned to use before the 2011 conflict began, and has
based its strategy on ever since – including this most recent leg of
The US Invasion of
After arming and
funding a literal region-wide army of Al Qaeda terrorists, the
United States now plans to use the resulting chaos to justify what
it has sought since the beginning of the conflict when it became
clear the Syrian government was not to capitulate or collapse – the
establishment of buffer zones now called “safe zones” by Brookings.
These zones once
created, will include US armed forces on the ground, literally
occupying seized Syrian territory cleared by proxies including
Kurdish groups and bands of Al Qaeda fighters in the north, and
foreign terrorist militias operating along the Jordanian-Syrian
border in the south. Brookings even admits that many of these zones
would be created by extremists, but that “ideological purity” wound
“no longer be quite as high of a bar.
The US assumes that
once this territory is seized and US troops stationed there, the
Syrian Arab Army will not dare attack in fear of provoking a direct
US military response against Damascus. The Brookings paper states
would be to help moderate elements establish reliable safe zones
within Syria once they were able. American, as well as Saudi
and Turkish and British and Jordanian and other Arab forces
would actin support, not only from the air but eventually on the
ground via the presence of special forces as well.
The approach would benefit from Syria’s open desert
terrain which could allow creation of buffer zones that
could be monitored for possible signs of enemy attack
through a combination of technologies, patrols, and other
methods that outside special forces could help Syrian local
fighters set up.
foolish enough to challenge these zones, even if he somehow
forced the withdrawal of the outside special forces, he
would be likely to lose his air power in ensuing
retaliatory strikes by outside forces, depriving his
military of one of its few advantages over ISIL.Thus, he
would be unlikely to do this.
In a single
statement, Brookings admits that the government of Syria is not
engaged in a war against its own people, but against “ISIL” (ISIS).
It is clear that Brookings, politicians, and other strategists
across the West are using the threat of ISIS in combination with the
threat of direct military intervention as a means of leverage for
finally overrunning and seizing Syria entirely.
The Invasion Could
Succeed, But Not for US Proxies
The entire plan is
predicated on America’s ability to first take and hold these “zones”
and subsequently mesh them into functioning autonomous regions.
Similar attempts at US “nation building” are currently on display in
the ravaged failed state that used to be North Africa’s nation of
Libya, Syria’s neighbor to the southeast, Iraq, Afghanistan,
Somalia, and the list goes on extensively.
The folly of this
plan both in attempts to use non-existent credibility and military
will to actually implement it, as well as in terms of those foolish
enough to place their trust in a nation that has left a swath of
global destruction and failed states in its wake stretching from
South Vietnam to Libya and back again, can be described only as
This strategy can
almost certainly be used to finally destroy Syria. It cannot
however, be used to do any of the things the US will promise in
order to get the various players necessary for it to succeed, to
there are measures Syria, its allies Iran and Hezbollah, as well as
Russia, China, and all other nations facing the threats of Western
hegemony can take to ensure that US forces will not be able to take
and hold Syrian territory or ultimately succeed in what is
essentially an invasion in slow motion. Already the US has used
their own ISIS hordes as a pretext to operate militarily within
Syrian territory, which as predicted, has led to this next stage in
An increase in
non-NATO peacekeeping forces in Syria could ultimately unhinge
Western plans altogether. The presence of Iranian, Lebanese, Yemeni,
Afghan, and other forces across Syria, particularly bordering “zone”
the US attempts to create, may offer the US the prospect of a
multinational confrontation it has neither the political will, nor
the resources to undertake.
The ability of Syria and its allies to create a
sufficient deterrence against US aggression in Syria, while cutting
off the logistical lines the US is using to supply ISIS and other
terrorist groups operating in Syria and Iraq will ultimately
determine Syria’s survival.
