Part 1 of 2 today: Looks like proxy war in Syria will be the start of war in the middle east
Russia, China and Iran showed support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, vowed no other foreign intervention allowed
Russia, China and Iran showed support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Monday, days before an international meeting likely to pile more pressure on him to step down in the face of an increasingly bloody uprising. : Assad met a senior Russian politician in Damascus, who reiterated Moscow's support for his self-styled reform program and spoke out against any foreign intervention in the conflict, Russian and Syrian news agencies reported.
China accused Western countries of stirring up civil war in Syria, and two Iranian warships docked at a Syrian naval base, underscoring rising international tensions over the near year-long crisis. Government forces pressed on with their crackdown on the anti-Assad uprising
Iran Warns US Over Syria as Crackdown Grows: Two Iranian warships docked in a Syrian port on Monday as a senior Iranian lawmaker denounced the possibility that the Americans might arm the Syrian opposition, adding to the international tensions over the nearly year-long crackdown by the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
Activist groups reported intensified attacks on the besieged Baba Amr neighborhood in the central city of Homs. They said the government’s inability to eradicate the opposition there despite weeks of bombardment could be keeping the military from striking deeper and harder into other parts of the country where armed resistance and rebellion is believed to be growing, including Hama and Idlib to the north. Iran? They are already in Syria. What about Israel?
Reports: Israeli commandos act in Syria, Jihadists on Jordan border: Confessions made by Turkish officers arrested in Syria last week reveal that Tel Aviv is involved in the insurgency led by "armed gangs" in the country to overthrow the regime of Bashar Assad, an Iranian news agency reported.
The correspondent of the Iranian Fars News Agency in Damascus, citing Syrian security sources, claimed that seven out of the 49 Turkish officers arrested, have admitted being trained by the Israeli Mossad, to carry out terrorist operations. They also claim to have initiated contacts with Saudi Arabia and Qatar. One of the Turkish officers indicated that Israeli commandos infiltrated the Syrian territory and provided assistance to the free Syrian army. He said the Mossad has also dispatched a team to Jordan to train members of al-Qaeda who came from Libya in order to send them to Syria to fight the regular Syrian army .
Syria’s army escalated its shelling of the city of Homs as President Bashar al-Assad accused “foreign sides” of providing weapons and money to rebels.
This should be a middle east problem and solution. The United States and Russia and China must stay out of it. That includes any future shipments of arms and ammunition.
Man I reiterate: Those people are on their own even though Iran is helping Syria and at least Russia And China are sanctioning murder and at least Russia is sending tons of arms and ammunition to Syria to be used in killing fellow Syrians. The civil war Russia keeps warning will be the result of UN intervention is here. Russia China, Iran, they are all responsible for creating this civil war. They made armed intervention by the protesters necessary because the peaceful protesters were labeled as terrorists and being slaughtered.
So far 40,000 soldiers have defected to help the protesters. I said when soldiers first defected that it would take the whole army as they are fighting the IRG too even though for now it is denied. We have heard for a while now that Arab observers are pulling out and staying. I have to believe Russia up to no good saying they want more observers knowing Syria is using the observers to kill as many people as possible.
In fact knowing what Russia is suggesting a few weeks ago we suggested, swell the numbers of Observers and the next time they are dragged into this by being fired on let them take up arms, claim self defense, and they are in against Syrian forces. The war and the breakdown will be out in the open.
Syria, Iran and Bashar Al-Assad appear to be the masters. From the beginning of the chaos in Syria we have been saying that Iran more specifically the IRG (Iran Revolutionary Guard) was in Syria helping if not leading the way in trying to quell the uprising. You know Bashar's only friend Iran is dictating that this slaughter is a necessity though Syria knows how to brutalize its people all to well. Iran will not allow a Democracy at her door step further isolating her.
That in itself defies logic because Iran is Shiite and Bashar and the ruling minority is Sunni like Al Qaeda and Saudi Arabia who we said would come to the aid of the citizens who are largely Shiite. It is all very confusing. Al Qaeda would not destroy Sunni security offices killing Sunni forces or would they?
However Bashar has already proven capable of killing his own to blame it on protesters and further his cause. He is also flat out lying saying protesters have killed 2000 of his security forces, a number pulled out of the air in order to kill and quell those against him. This Bashar created civil war is barely starting unless he leaves and he will not. As long as Russia keeps the 60 ton deliveries of arms and ammunition coming Syria will be all right. Iran will never allow Syria to fall to Democracy.
Russia is also right that the world must stay out including them and China not just the US, the EU, and Israel. This is an Arab problem and the middle east should solve it unless WW3 is the goal. What do you think? Are we using Syria to get into Iran?
