Washington is planning to table another bill for a regime change in Damascus at United Nations. Its contents are not much different than what were vetoed by both Russia and China recently. One cannot blame Barack Obama administration to keep trying to bring aboard a united UN Security Council vote to exploit it for a regime change as it did in Libya with the help of two veto-powers, France and Britain. Washington is not in the position to bypass UNSC as it did in 2003 and invaded Iraq.
Pro-USrael former prime minister of Lebanon, Sa’ad Hariri, spilled the beans in an interview with a British reporter last month that Washington wants to establish a coalition government in Damascus – consisting of Muslim Brotherhood and anti-Bashar Ba’athist leaders. The new regime will not only establish diplomatic relation with the Zionist entity but also distance itself from Hizbullah, Hamas and Iran. Thus making it easier for USrael to attack the Islamic Republic.
To begin with, the US, Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia has introduced the religious ‘sectarian card’ in Syria which has been home to one of the most tolerant religious society in the Arab world – pitting Sunni majority against Shia, Christian and secularist/Socialist Ba’athist minorities. Washington and Qatar is arming the anti-government rebels as they did in Libya.
However, Syria is not an easy toast like Libya, Afghanistan or Iraq. But the Jewish Lobby believes that a pro-Israel regime in Damascus is the only way to get rid of Iranian menace. Zionist Jew Danielle Pletka of the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), a propaganda arm of Israel Lobby (AIPAC) said recently:
“Syria is the soft underbelly of Iran, Tehran’s most important ally, conduit for arms and cash to terrorists. A unique confluence of American moral purpose and America’s strategic interest argue for intervention in Syria. It’s time to start arming the Free Syrian Army (rebels)”.
One wonder why the US should turn against one of its Arab ally which helped US by sending its forces in Lebanon to protect both the US-Israel interests in late 1980s?
In addition to Russian support – Bashar al-Assad regime is supported by Iran, Iraq, Hizbullah and Hamas. Syria itself has 270,000-men strong army and airforce equipped with tanks, missiles and fighter-planes. All together, could make Israeli Jewish lives hell.
