Furies pursue those who cause this
A warning, which again you can accept or disregard. When you allow atrocities to happen, no one is immune from the consequences. Even to the richest and powerful, you will pay. Sadly, even the innocent will suffer, till you change.
I don’t write screeds or manifestos. These are warnings, based on the clear future I’ve been writing about for some time. Karma is inexorable for those who cannot change.
Recently, Syria was accused of bombing civilians with Sarin gas. Even though the State Dept. had confirmed Syria didn’t possess any CW, and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh said Turkey had transferred Sarin to their head chopping allies.
Even though an MIT professor and a lawyer whose PhD is in neuropharmacology wrote assessments based on evidence so far,
The media still blamed Assad for “bombing his own people” and Donald J. Trump, who warned against foreign wars, shot off 59 cruise missiles at the Syrian government anyways. Assad, who likely will survive beyond any of the US, UK, France, Saudi and Israeli leaders who wanted to take him down, was winning the war. Why would he weaken his own position by doing this?
Of course our leaders will argue their case for humanitarian intervention with passionate intensity. They have tried to topple any Arab leader who stood up to them, with disastrous consequences, each time. It’s not like they’re stupid, it’s by design. If we’re stupid enough to believe another WMD scare, more fool us.
This partial timeline provides evidence that the U.S. government and Obama in particular bear a significant responsibility for the Syrian war and the results of that war. Obama approved elements of CIA plans that go back over 65 years. The CIA meddling is distinct from the Pentagon’s failed plan to train “moderate rebels”, not covered in this timeline.
1940s and 1950s “…if you want to understand the origins of authoritarian rule in Syria today, it is important to go back to the 1940s and the 1950s and see the role the CIA played in that land.” See also here, p. 122: “In the late 1940’s, U.S. policymakers grew alarmed when the Syrian government, bowing to public pressure, refused to let a U.S. oil company build a pipeline through its territory. Washington also found the strong anti-Western sentiment and the large Communist party in the country ominous. Concerned that Syria was ‘drifting leftward’, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) laid plans to overthrow its three-year old civilian government.” CIA operatives met with right-wing military leaders in Damascus to discuss installing a “military-supported dictatorship”.
America’s unsavory record of violent interventions in Syria—obscure to the American people yet well known to Syrians—sowed fertile ground for the violent Islamic Jihadism that now complicates any effective response by our government to address the challenge of ISIS. So long as the American public and policymakers are unaware of this past, further interventions are likely to only compound the crisis. Moreover, our enemies delight in our ignorance.
As the New York Times reported in a Dec. 8, 2015 front page story, ISIS political leaders and strategic planners are working to provoke an American military intervention which, they know from experience, will flood their ranks with volunteer fighters, drown the voices of moderation and unify the Islamic world against America.
To understand this dynamic, we need to look at history from the Syrians’ perspective and particularly the seeds of the current conflict. Long before our 2003 occupation of Iraq triggered the Sunni uprising that has now morphed into the Islamic State, the CIA had nurtured violent Jihadism as a Cold War weapon and freighted U.S./Syrian relationships with toxic baggage.
During the 1950’s, President Eisenhower and the Dulles brothers rebuffed Soviet treaty proposals to leave the Middle East a cold war neutral zone and let Arabs rule Arabia. Instead, they mounted a clandestine war against Arab Nationalism—which CIA Director Allan Dulles equated with communism—particularly when Arab self-rule threatened oil concessions. They pumped secret American military aid to tyrants in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Iraq and Lebanon favoring puppets with conservative Jihadist ideologies which they regarded as a reliable antidote to Soviet Marxism.
At a White House meeting between the CIA’s Director of Plans, Frank Wisner, and Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles, in September of 1957, Eisenhower advised the agency, “We should do everything possible to stress the ‘holy war’ aspect.”
So, once again, US, UK, France, Israel, Turkey, Saudis, UAE & Qatar Planned a Syria Coup and demanded Assad step down. They shipped arms raided from Libya to Jihadis in Syria, and Ambassador Stephens died in the fallout at Benghazi. I saw the waves of refugees pour out from Libya and Syria, and it is for this reason I said Obama’s “legacy” would be this, and, “Hillary Clinton would never be the president of the U.S”.
But that is just, political analysis. What I wrote from a spiritual perspective January 31, 2011, anticipating the changes to come in Europe, then America and the M.E:
We are seeing the failure of globalization and interventionist colonial wars. The US has become irrelevant. Europe is struggling to overcome its own financial mismanagement.
It is starting again, as it always has. The actions of a few, snowballing. Poland 1948, Hungary 1956, worldwide in 1968, and Egypt, 2011. The world is not coming to an end, it is a beginning. The next place where people will rise will be Europe, and then, America.
This is the message:
We will not be governed by you.
And now, a new message:
Furies Pursue You.
