Refugee Crisis: Intermediate Product of Western Plan

Ailan

West has again grown in hope that Bashar al Assad’s regime would not survive the latest assaults by ISIS. It will allow the Refugee Crisis to build till Assad is gone. This is not without reason that Saudi Arab, Qatar and Kuwait have not been pressurised to absorb at least a substantial percentage of refugees. They will of course be made to pay the bills. Till Assad Regime is in place, ISIS will not be attacked. As soon as the fall of Syrian regime becomes imminent, war against ISIS will be launched. This may come sooner than later. With Iranian Nuclear deal, Iran’s support to Assad may also be neutralised. This is what at least the Western powers believe.

People are being forced to believe that the European Refugee crisis is a sudden unprecedented crisis, which Europe has to bear with as its “humanitarian duty” and that it is the creation of the forces that are dangerous for the whole world. The truth on the contrary is that this crisis is not only the intermediate product of West’s own plans in the Middle East but will also serve their future plans.

I have been arguing for well over two years that West is not only directly but wholly responsible for Syrian Civil War. Fed up with its wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, America-led Western Coalition decided to replace wars with civil wars. Wars had given them billions of dollars in terms of arms trade but had also consumed several thousands of their lives. The army had grown tired of it. It would be a better idea to plunge the area into civil wars. “Arab Springs” began and it soon became clear that these “springs” were ablaze with infernos. Libyan leader Gaddafi was thrown out, and the weapons from there were sent to Syria in order to topple the Syrian President Assad who was considered one of the three Axes of Evils, Iran and Hezbollah being the other two. ISIS was allowed to grow in strength and given huge weaponry as well as billions of dollars. When last year Assad succeeded in turning tables on the rebels, ISIS moved into Iraq. Initially it was used to replace Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki whose closeness to Iran irked America. Once the purpose was served, the ISIS suddenly became the “most dangerous” terrorist outfit of the world.

The American involvement in Syria has now become well known. Alex Kane says:

“Here are four ways the U.S. is currently intervening in Syria.

  1. Light Arms to Rebels

The most direct form of American intervention is the flow of small arms to rebels in the south of Syria, where they control some territory. In late January, Reuters revealed that Congress had approved funding for months of further arms deliveries.,,,,

The move is a stark contrast to last summer, when reservations about whether the weapons could end up with Islamic fundamentalists caused Congress to dry up the flow of weapons.  ….

  1. U.S. Training

One of the first substantial interventionist moves the U.S. made was its decision to train Syrian rebels. Since late 2012, the CIA and U.S. special forces troops stationed in Jordan and Turkey have trained Syrian opposition forces. The training was started months before arms began to flow to the rebels……

  1. Non-Lethal Aid

In early 2013, the Obama administration announced it was sending $60 million in “non-lethal” aid to the Free Syrian Army in the form of food rations and medical supplies. In April 2013, the U.S. said it would double the amount of “non-lethal aid sent to Syria, which is meant in part to allow Syrian opposition forces to provide essential services on the ground in areas they control. This time, the non-lethal aid included things like communications equipment, vehicles and night-vision goggles. In other words, the kind of aid necessary for rebels to be lethal……

  1. Sanctions

Syria has been under some form of Western sanctions for decades. But in the aftermath of Assad’s brutal crackdown on protesters when the uprising began in 2011, more sanctions were imposed………

The Obama administration froze all the assets of the Syrian government as a response to the armed force the government used on demonstrators. The U.S. has also prohibited “all new investment in Syria by a U.S. person, the provision of any U.S. services to Syria, and any transaction in or related to petroleum products of Syrian origin,” as Human Rights First explained. In June 2013, the U.S. announced it was easing the sanctions on rebel-controlled areas of Syria to facilitate the exports of commodities like technology and software, and for items relating to water sanitation, food processing and more…”

But the events of the last two years have clearly shown that despite all the propaganda against ISIS, it has continued to be a friendly enemy of West. It is enemy in Iraq and friend in Syria. If West had wanted, it would have destroyed ISIS by now. But it won’t do that, till Assad remains in power in Syria. ISIS has been clearly told that it would not be confronted till it restricts its operations in Syria.

The creation of ISIS by America too is now accepted by the analysts. An article in the Guardian, Now the truth emerges: how the US fuelled the rise of Isis in Syria and Iraq by Seumas Milne says:

“The defence argued that going ahead with the trial would have been an “affront to justice” when there was plenty of evidence the British state was itself providing “extensive support” to the armed Syrian opposition…

That didn’t only include the “non-lethal assistance” boasted of by the government (including body armour and military vehicles), but training, logistical support and the secret supply of “arms on a massive scale”. Reports were cited that MI6 had cooperated with the CIA on a “rat line” of arms transfers from Libyan stockpiles to the Syrian rebels in 2012 after the fall of the Gaddafi regime…

But terrorism is now squarely in the eye of the beholder. And nowhere is that more so than in the Middle East, where today’s terrorists are tomorrow’s fighters against tyranny – and allies are enemies – often at the bewildering whim of a western policymaker’s conference call……

For the past year, US, British and other western forces have been back in Iraq, supposedly in the cause of destroying the hyper-sectarian terror group Islamic State (formerly known as al-Qaida in Iraq). This was after Isis overran huge chunks of Iraqi and Syrian territory and proclaimed a self-styled Islamic caliphate………

A revealing light on how we got here has now been shown by a recently declassified secret US intelligence report, written in August 2012, which uncannily predicts – and effectively welcomes – the prospect of a “Salafist principality” in eastern Syria and an al-Qaida-controlled Islamic state in Syria and Iraq. In stark contrast to western claims at the time, the Defense Intelligence Agency document identifies al-Qaida in Iraq (which became Isis) and fellow Salafists as the “major forces driving the insurgency in Syria” – and states that “western countries, the Gulf states and Turkey” were supporting the opposition’s efforts to take control of eastern Syria……

Raising the “possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality”, the Pentagon report goes on, “this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran)”…..

A year into the Syrian rebellion, the US and its allies weren’t only supporting and arming an opposition they knew to be dominated by extreme sectarian groups; they were prepared to countenance the creation of some sort of “Islamic state” – despite the “grave danger” to Iraq’s unity – as a Sunni buffer to weaken Syria……….

That doesn’t mean the US created Isis, of course, though some of its Gulf allies certainly played a role in it – as the US vice-president, Joe Biden, acknowledged last year. But there was no al-Qaida in Iraq until the US and Britain invaded. And the US has certainly exploited the existence of Isis against other forces in the region as part of a wider drive to maintain western control………

In reality, US and western policy in the conflagration that is now the Middle East is in the classic mould of imperial divide-and-rule. American forces bomb one set of rebels while backing another in Syria, and mount what are effectively joint military operations with Iran against Isis in Iraq while supporting Saudi Arabia’s military campaign against Iranian-backed Houthi forces in Yemen. However confused US policy may often be, a weak, partitioned Iraq and Syria fit such an approach perfectly…….

What’s clear is that Isis and its monstrosities won’t be defeated by the same powers that brought it to Iraq and Syria in the first place, or whose open and covert war-making has fostered it in the years since. Endless western military interventions in the Middle East have brought only destruction and division.”

West has again grown in hope that Bashar al Assad’s regime would not survive the latest assaults by ISIS. It will allow the Refugee Crisis to build till Assad is gone. This is not without reason that Saudi Arab, Qatar and Kuwait have not been pressurised to absorb at least a substantial percentage of refugees. They will of course be made to pay the bills. Till Assad Regime is in place, ISIS will not be attacked. As soon as the fall of Syrian regime becomes imminent, war against ISIS will be launched. This may come sooner than later. With Iranian Nuclear deal, Iran’s support to Assad may also be neutralised. This is what at least the Western powers believe.

The War may be coming soon.

West will again start smiling.
