US role in Syria exposes the evils of hegemony

During the recent Group of Eight (G8) Summit, Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has had no hesitation in taking a tough line, criticized the West, and in particular the United States, for the decision to provide arms to Syrian rebels.

Putin asserted that the Syrian opposition had committed "appalling crimes". They were guilty of conducting terrorist attacks, and they had also killed their enemies and eviscerated them, eating their intestines in front of the public and cameras. This hardly conformed to the humanitarian values preached in Europe for hundreds of years, Putin observed – touching a raw nerve with the Americans in his audience.

The U.S. announced on June 13 it will send weapons to the rebels, then on June 22 at the "Friends of Syria" conference in Amman, it went on to encourage its key allies to follow suit. The U.S. move will inflame the civil war in Syria: the conflict will widen, become more intense, and last longer. The suffering of the ordinary people of war-ravaged Syria will be exacerbated. The U.S. actions expose the evil of hegemony.

Firstly, the U.S.-supported opposition is an irrational and violent group which rejects any political settlement of the Syrian crisis. Therefore the U.S. plan to arm the rebels will result directly in the deaths of Syrian people.

Supported by the Western powers and pro-American Arab monarchies, violent seizure of power is the only goal of the Syrian rebels. They have not only targeted government troops and officials, but also killed ordinary people in a program of intimidation. Even western media outlets are now acknowledging that the Syrian rebels have become more brutal than terrorists - even the most cold-hearted terrorists have not yet gone so far as to eat human flesh and drink blood.

Additionally, given that Syrian opposition groups have now formed alliances with Al Qaeda, the result of the U.S. plan to send weapons to the rebels will in fact be the supply of arms to terrorist organizations.

Secondly, direct military intervention by the U.S. in Syria may well result in a repetition of the "Libyan experience" in the country.

The U.S. is the main instigator of the Syrian civil war. Over the past two years it has being been helping Syrian rebels through the supply of "non-lethal" material aid, while at the behest of the U.S., pro-American Arab monarchies and Turkey have been supporting the Syrian opposition in the civil war by providing money, weapons and bases.

The U.S. seems to have reached the conclusion that this strategy is not going to achieve its goal – the overthrow of President Bashar Assad and the establishment of a compliant regime in Syria. Therefore it has now made the decision to take a more aggressive line and provide lethal weapons to the rebels, adding that it does not exclude the possibility of establishing a "no-fly" zone in Syria or the launching of cruise missiles against the Syrian government. This clearly indicates that the U.S. is prepared to intervene directly in the Syrian civil war; if it cannot achieve its aims through arming the rebels, the U.S. will transplant the "Libya model", even if in so doing it will cause an unprecedented humanitarian tragedy.

The United States will not be stopped until the international community lead by China and Russia stops the beast by force. As I said many times in the past in postings aggression by facist regimes can only be stopped by force. You can talk until the cows come home and all you will get is one lie after another. After Syria it will be Iran, after Iran maybe China or Russia just like the Nazi regime. It does not matter who is the President of the US the policies will remain the same, as those policies are based on a long term plan for world US corporate domination. China and Russia do not understand that both countries are already at war with the US because the United States has declared war on both countries behind closed doors, just as Germany and Japan did prior to overt military action. Once the US surrounds Russia and China with military means it will be too late. You are dealing with madmen who believe they can neutralize a counter nuclear strike after a first strike on China and Russia, which means they are close or have already developed new technologies to do so.

I fully agree with the analyzis in the article and feel very pleased knowing that others know about the true situation in Syria. At the same time it"s difficult finding a solution for getting the US change their mind and stop them from invading Syria. It is very good that China and Russia supports the people in Syria and veto foreign interference in the conflict.

The U.S. is the axis of evil, the world’s biggest terrorist – the antithesis of democracy, freedom of belief, civil and human rights. Rivers and floods of blood, countries destroyed, people dead and tortured whereever they go.

I have just read Yin Chengde"s article (published today) re the "US role in Syria exposes the evils of hegemony". I have to say that I both enjoyed the article and I am in agreement with views expressed by Y Chengde.The US"s move to arming the "rebels" in Syria, which will end in an increase in the bloodletting in that country, is surely part of the US plan to re-shape that part of the world. This was outlined during an interview with Wesley Clark who informed viewers that around 9-20 after the 9/11 attacks on the US the US government had drawn up plans to "take down" 7 countries in 5 years. One of those countries being Syria, with the end goal being the destruction of the Islamic Republic of Iran.The US is the evil empire that the whole world needs to unite against.
