"One wonders if the American administration, which has lost popular legitimacy in its country, became the source of legitimacy in Syria to speak on behalf of the Syrian people and intervene in their choices and home affairs"
President Barack Obama and his Western vassals for the first time this August 18 called on President Bashar al-Assad to leave and strengthened sanctions against Ba’athist Syria after five months of protests and destabilization organized by the West in Syria, through "NGOs" created for this purpose. Including coup attempts and uprisings led by terrorist groups armed by the United States and NATO.
The masks have fallen. In Tripoli as in Damascus, the boss of the aggression is named Obama!
A WAR AGAINST THE ARAB REVOLUTIONARY NATIONALISM STARTED A DECADE EARLIER!
From last February 7, 2011, in Tripoli (where I was for the "6th European Convention of MEDD" held in Zawiah, the 5-6-7 February 2011), in an interview with PCN-CPN-TV (1), the new communitarian Multimedia Network on the so-called "Arab revolutions" carried out on the "Green Square" in Tripoli, the Mecca of Fateh Revolution of 1 September 1969, in front of the barracks from where came the revolutionary officers commanded by Moammar Gaddafi – powerful symbol – I denounced – ALONE (2) – the so-called "Arab revolutions", in fact American coups, on the model of "color revolutions" attempted and sometimes successful in Eastern Europe since 2000 (Yugoslavia, Ukraine, Georgia …).
My analysis was then and still is that this is the realization by Obama of the project of Bush and Neocons called "Greater Middle East": the installation throughout the Arab world of puppet pseudo-"democracies", combination in power of pro-US military and Islamists under Yankee control. And that the main targets were and are actually the last two national Arab regimes: Libyan Jamahiriya and Ba’athist Syria. It was the neo-colonialist policy of the Bush Neocons in 2000-2004 (3). It is that of Obama, his advisers Brezinski and Soros, his associates, neocons or Likudniks with French passports today!
AS IN LIBYA IN FEBRUARY-MARCH, THE WESTERN ATTACK AGAINST SYRIA IS MASSIVE AND COORDINATED …
The attack against Syria is massive and coordinated.
Calls to the departure of President Assad, combined with new economic sanctions, were launched almost simultaneously by Obama, his French, German and British vassals and the puppets of NATO and the European Union.
This is the first time that the U.S. explicitly calls for the departure of President Assad, whose government has been trying from 15 March to quell the coup and the insurgency of armed small groups by sending its army and tanks into many cities.
"We have repeatedly said that President Assad was to lead a democratic transition or resign. He has not led (this transition). In the interest of the Syrian people (sic), it is time for President Assad to withdraw, "said Obama cynically in a statement.
Obama said he had taken harsh new sanctions against the Syrian Ba’athist state, by signing a decree banning the import of petroleum and petroleum products from Syria to the United States and freezing all assets that the Syrian state could have under U.S. jurisdiction. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who looks more and more like the witches in Macbeth, said gleefully that the sanctions hit "in the heart" the system.
Meanwhile, a report of American UN lackeys drew up a so-called "chilling catalog of brutality and violence against the Syrian civilian population that could be under crimes against humanity" and called on the Security Council, which meets Thursday to consider to seize the International Criminal Court. A scenario already played in Yugoslavia in 1996-2000 and now in Libya.
These developments have occurred when President Assad announced on the phone to UN chief Ban Ki-moon, the end of military operations against armed groups according to the UN.
THE "EUROPEAN" UNION UNDER NATO:
NEITHER MORE NOR LESS THAN THE COLONIAL INFANTRY OF WASHINGTON!
As much as the policy of W. Bush was brutal, as much as Obama intrigues and maneuvers with cynicism and hypocrisy. He therefore lets act his NATO “European” vassals. This has two advantages for him. On the one hand it is the EU that gets its hands dirty in the Middle East, moreover in a war that is as much directed against the Greater Europe as against the Arab world. And secondly, it saves him the wrath of the US Congress opposed to these political and military adventures.
The "European" Union – the EU has become anything but Europe, the cache gender policy of the United States military dominance in Europe – notes that "Bashar al-Assad has lost all legitimacy in the eyes of the Syrian people" (sic ) and "the need for him to step down," said the "European" chief diplomat made in NATO Catherine Ashton, in a statement on behalf of the EU, referring to future sanctions.
In a joint statement, President Nicolas Sarkozy – the neocon with a French passport who liquidated Gaullism – German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister David Cameron have also asked President Assad to "leave power", speaking for "new firm sanctions" against his regime.
The EU ambassadors met so this August 19th in Brussels to decide on new sanctions. If the punitive measures taken by Washington have little effect on Damascus because trade relations are almost nonexistent, it is not the case for the EU which buys 95% of oil exported by Syria, so a source of income significant for the country.
In addition, Britain, France, Germany and Portugal, all good little soldiers of NATO and the United States, announced Thursday that they "would seek a UN resolution imposing sanctions on against the Syrian regime, including an arms embargo, a freeze of Syrian assets and a travel ban on some officials’
THE BELGIAN NON-STATE LEADING THE PACK OF NATO JACKALS!
In the middle of this pack of jackals, Belgium stands out for bellicose ardor. As in the Libyan case, the Belgian non-state, without a government since the elections of June 13, 2010, facing a political and financial crisis and in the brink of collapse, acts as the spearhead of yankee policy in Europe and the Mediterranean.
The leader of the Liberal Group in the European Parliament, former Belgian Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt denounced "the softness of the European Union in the Syrian affair," in a statement released this August 18th. He calls for an embargo on Syrian oil. "Today the United States has announced unprecedented sanctions, including an oil embargo, while the EU finds itself once again behind. The United States hits hard, while the EU expects and reflects the action. Syria is 10,000 kilometers from Washington, but less than 500 km from Cyprus, an EU member state, yet the EU has been unable to introduce any meaningful steps implementing tough sanctions, "he shamefully said.
THE “SYRIAN” WHORES OF WASHINGTON:
THE PSEUDO SRGC (SYRIAN REVOLUTION GENERAL COMMISSION) IS THE CLONE OF BENGHAZI TNC …
Meanwhile, the small groups and other "NGOs", as OSDH, led from abroad continue to undermine their work to destabilize Syria. And their action supports of course the new phase of Western aggression, on the front of the media war through imaginary “NGOs”, and on the forehead of terrorism in Syria through the same armed splinter groups.
On its Facebook page, the movement "Syrian Revolution 2011," which is neither revolutionary nor Syrian has called for demonstrations under the slogan: "victory approachs." "From the siege to cities victory will emerge," they wrote. Another site of pseudo- "militants" called for "intensifiying daily demonstrations, economic boycotts of companies close to the regime and encouraging soldiers to desert."
Obama has also decided to put some order in the so-called "Syrian opposition", constituted as its clone of Benghazi, the “Libyan” TNC, of dozens of rival factions.
And imposed on August 19 a unification of the “Syrian” traitors”. Called "the general body of the Syrian revolution", the coalition is the clone of the Benghazi TNC and said its goal was to "tighten up" the ranks of the opposition in order to "lead to the fall of the regime of Bashar al-Assad and the establishment of a democratic state "(sic).
The "Syrian Revolution General Commission" (SRGC) is the result of the merger of 44 groups and imaginery coordinating committees that drive the five-month protest in Syria. From Washington, Paris, London or Geneva, which is safer …
Who are these so-called "Syrians"?
The Syrian Observatory of Human Rights (SOHR) – the main source of media lies that overrun the media of NATO – is "based in Britain," as stated in the AFP.
MOSCOW, FLEECED BY THE LIBYAN AFFAIR, SUPPORTS SYRIA
Faced with this avalanche of bad news, Damascus got on Aug. 19th support from Russia, a permanent member of the Security Council, which was rolled in flour in the Libyan affair, and has vetoed any resolution which could strike its ally.
Long-time ally of Syria and supplier of arms to that country, Russia advocates primarily non-interference and calls for internal political dialogue.
In addition, a delegation of Russian parliamentarians will visit Syria "in the coming days to understand what is happening in this country," said a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the upper house of Russian parliament, Aslambek Aslakhanov, quoted by Interfax.
Moscow also continues to export arms to Syria, had indicated on August 17 the head of the Russian public group of arms sales Rosoboronexport, despite international pressure calling for an end to these shipments to Damascus.
WHAT TO DO?
But the legitimate Syrian government stands firm and claims rightly to send its army and tanks in areas of protest to "hunt down the terrorists" whom it accuses of spreading violence and chaos. With the support of the population.
It announced reforms but said they could not be applied "without the restoration of security."
The coup having failed, Washington goes to the economical and financial aggrression and diplomatic maneuvering through its puppets in the EU, UN and other ICC … Before the military aggression as in Libya?
Our task is simple.
As I have already done last February 16 in Libya, I appeal to the activists who follow and support our work in Europe, Africa and Latin America, and our comrades who are struggling at the heart of the imperialist countries of North America.
We must strongly support the Ba’athist Syrian Fortress!
This is what Honor commands us.
The Revolution, the People’s Cause and the anti-imperialist transnational fight ask it us.
The fundamental interests of our pan-European, pan-African or Latin American countries dictate it to us.
We are fighters. Not these opportunist cowards or these pseudo "journalists" seeking to "show" without committing under the guise of "observation missions."
Our place is in battle with Damascus and with Tripoli, fighting for our freedom today!

(2) Meanwhile, the "journalists" – leftism has miserably fallen into food journalism – who today "bear witness against NATO in Libya “ used to spread shameful attacks against the" Libyan dictator "and supported the" revolutionaries of Benghazi "(sic). Thanks to the political and ideological action of our networks ELAC and ALAC – which, they, do not "show" (sic) but are fighting for and with the Libyan Jamahiriya – conducted in more than 30 European, African and American countries, and thanks to the failover of opinion, that they are a turncoat and open their eyes.
