If you’re whipsawed by confusion over the origins of the war in Syria, look no further at this latest report from Newsbud, which does an excellent job of breaking it down, in a way you will never, ever see in the Mainstream News.
This episode of Newsbud’s The Geopolitical Report, narrated by Kurt Nimmo investigates the scene of the historical “flashpoint” of Daraa, a town near the Syria-Jordan border. It reveals that the CIA, in conjunction with the Muslim Brotherhood, attacked police and set the stage for a conflict that has so far claimed the lives of more than 400,000 Syrians.
The report then goes into the decades of behind-the-scene meddling done to Syria by the US Deep State, which has escalated into the current proxy war between US-backed terrorists against the Syrian Army and their allies, the Russians.
The desired outcome for the US’ Deep State is to take down Syria’s secular government and to replace it with an extremist Wahhabi principality, to be controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood, a longtime CIA and British intelligence asset.
Many studying the realpolitik of these events believe that this is a pipeline war, with the US intervening in Syria on behalf of a proposed Qatari pipeline through Syria to Europe, which would compete with a Russian pipeline already in place. Others argue that US support for Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia in their ill-conceived plan to overthrow the Assad regime was driven by the US Neocons’ policy of permanent war in the Middle East region but more importantly, three Sunni allies, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar control US access to the key US military bases in the region. The Pentagon, the CIA, the State Department and the Obama White House have been concerned, above all, with protecting the US military positions in the region.
A potential fly in this Neocon ointment occurred on Dcember 29, 2016, when the Syrian government and rebel groups agreed to a nationwide ceasefire that commenced at midnight local time (5:00 p.m. EST), brokered by the Turkish and Russian governments. The US did not play a role in brokering this agreement, however, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said President-elect Donald Trump’s administration would be welcome to join the Syrian peace process once he takes office.
