De Oppresso Liber “To Free the Oppressed.” 7th Special Forces Motto
Yet again, just hours before a critical UN Security Council vote on yet another Syrian resolution (this one put forward by the Brits), a terrorist attack has claimed the lives of several Syrian people as well as high ranking military personnel. Here’s the question: whose fingerprints are all over this cowardly attack?
“Russia has accused the West of inciting the Syrian opposition after a suicide bomber killed the defense minister and President Bashar Assad’s brother-in-law…
… Lavrov says a British resolution that would impose sanctions and allows for possible military intervention “would amount to direct support of the revolutionary movement.”” Washington Post
This time they killed the Syrian Defense Minister, Gen. Daoud Rajha, and President Bashar Assad’s brother-in-law. the attack also wounded Syrian intelligence chief Hisham Bekhtyar, his fate is yet to be determined. It is reported to have been a suicide bombing carried out by one of Assad’s own security team members.
In the past these security council per-cursor terrorist events have been immediately framed by the complicit media outlets as the work of the dreaded Assad regime. But later it turned out that those reports were premature and based on “activists say” “journalism” when in fact they were either the work of the State Department backed international mercenary terrorists (Houla Massacre) or they were simply a terrorist strike on Syrian army regulars which had gone bad for Hillary’s global agenda.
This latest pre-vote attack is clearly the work of terrorist groups operating inside Syria on behalf of the US, Britain, and a host of complicit puppet regimes including (but not limited to) Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
In keeping with the new “Putin Approach” to international diplomacy, the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov did not mince words:
“instead of calming the opposition down, some of our partners are inciting it to go on.” Lavrov
Several organizations have claimed responsibility for the attack including the head of the Free Syrian Army and Liwa Al-Islam, a so-called “Syrian rebel Islamic group” (which translates to a for-profit terrorist organization paid for by the same bank that laundered all that Saudi terrorism money?)
These claims highlight an important connection in Syria and that is that these foreign terrorist organizations are actually in bed with the Free Syrian Army which of course is in bed with Hillary Clinton. (2 degrees of separation is not that far, at least that’s the way the US government looks at it when they decide to raid someone’s home for giving support to terrorist organizations)
Perhaps this is why we suddenly saw a rash of “news” stories this past week falsely claiming the Obama administration wasn’t going to provide assistance to the “rebels” till after the election.
“Despite mounting fury from the Syrian rebels, who are seeking assistance for their efforts to overthrow the Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, the White House has refused all requests for heavy weapons and intelligence support.” Telegraph July 16th 2012
Seems like the policy makers in Washington knew something was in the works and they wanted to spin-up up some preemptive plausible deniability for the Peace Prize President.
I guess they figured we would forget that the CIA has been doling out weapons and aid to the various groups in Syria while our puppet regimes in Saudi Arabia and Qatar have been paying them (and that is to say nothing of Israeli weapons being found on the terrorists by the Syrian military) or the fact that the Obama administration has already admitted that they are supplying communications equipment and logistical support to the roving band of terrorists.
“A small number of C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey, helping allies decide which Syrian opposition fighters across the border will receive arms to fight the Syrian government, according to American officials and Arab intelligence officers.” New York Times
Now, what exactly are we looking at? Does this pattern seems familiar to anyone? Is there any kind of program that we know of that sounds a lot like this?
First, we have a targeted regime, ripe for the picking, being defended (partially at least) by large outside forces (Russia and China… kinda). Our owners (and I choose that word deliberately) want to inflict neoliberalism on the nation of Syria in the worse way so Hillary is doing what Secretaries of State have done in this country for decades… warmongering.
The justification for this greedy globalist enterprise is the same that it has been for years upon years: humanitarian intervention.
Take Operation 40 for example, there are far too many others: here is a case where the CIA, on behalf of US corporations (like United Fruit) launched terrorist campaigns to destabilize governments of Cuba, Central America, and Mexico because they dared hold revolutions or the dreaded “free elections” that weren’t fomented or paid for by US special interest groups and corporate heads.
Our freedom loving CIA directly employed terrorists like Luis Posada Carriles who blew up Cubana Flight 455 and Orlando Bosch who murdered Chilean former minister Orlando Letelier in Washington DC. All this was to replace the heads of various nations, to force “regime change” in countries that didn’t want to play ball as it were.
Now we have Syria and as we have already established, the pattern exists, in plain view, that has been seen before: indigenous actors are employed and supported either by our secret agencies or surrogate nations, to wreak havok on the targeted population until the will of the people and the targeted regime breaks. It is the purest definition of the word “terrorism” that exists.
Look at how NBC News reported on this morning’s assassination in Syria:
“A suicide bomber struck the National Security building in the Syrian capital Wednesday, killing the defense minister and wounding other senior officials in a major psychological and tactical blow to the regime of President Bashar Assad.” NBC News
A “major psychological and tactical blow”
This is an extrajudicial assassination, something that used to be considered illegal in this country as far as I can tell, and NBC simply refers to it as a major blow?
And also look at the choice of the word “psychological”. It’s almost as if the person writing that article has read the US’s handbook on what they call “unconventional warfare”
“A broad spectrum of military and paramilitary operations, normally of long duration, predominantly conducted through, with, or by indigenous or surrogate forces who are organized, trained, equipped, supported, and directed in varying degrees by an external source. It includes, but is not limited to, guerrilla warfare, subversion, sabotage, intelligence activities, and unconventional assisted recovery”
“The U.S. defines sabotage as “an act or acts with intent to injure, interfere with, or obstruct the national defense of a country by willfully injuring or destroying, or attempting to injure or destroy, any national defense or war materiel, premises, or utilities, to include human and natural resources.”
“Subversion is formally defined as “action designed to undermine the military, economic, psychological, or political strength or morale of a regime.” Wikipedia page on unconventional warfare
Well heck, that NBC quote seems to come straight from an understanding of what unconventional warfare actually does, undermine the military and psychological morale of a regime.
But do we have forces still practicing unconventional warfare? I mean it sounds almost ghoulish in the wake of the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Fighting terrorism with terrorism?
Well, there is the 7th Special Forces Group. There motto is De Oppresso Liber or “To Free the Oppressed.” (there’s a very touching picture on their website of a special forces soldier showing a random brown child a 50 caliber mounted weapon)
“The 7th Special Force Group is one of five active Special Forces Groups providing specialized support to the combatant commanders.
Special Forces units perform seven doctrinal missions: Unconventional Warfare, Foreign Internal Defense, Special Reconnaissance, Direct Action, Combatting Terrorism, Counter-proliferation, and Information Operations.” 7th Special Forces Group website
The 7th has a rather interesting background association with Syria actually.
Back when the CIA decided to destabilize El Salvador and break it up into privatized bits and pieces, it was the men of the 7th with their “unconventional warfare” skills who stepped up to the plate:
“Throughout the 1980s, 7th Special Forces Group played a critical advisory role for the El Salvadoran armed forces. The Salvadoran military became a highly trained counter-insurgency force under the tutelage of 7th Group.
The 7th Special Forces Group also played a very important role in preparing the Honduran military to resist and defeat an invasion from Nicaragua. 7th Group also trained the Honduran military in counter-insurgency tactics, which enabled Honduras to defeat the Honduran communist-backed guerrillas. The 7th Special Forces Group also became involved in counter narcotics operations in the Andean Ridge countries of Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia.” 7th Special Forces fact sheet
The 7th was all over the CIA’s little Latin American project from El Salvador to Honduras to Nicaragua and back. And at the helm of all of it, keeping peaceful solutions from being realized, keeping the terror campaigns rolling, was Reagan’s own corporatist pitbull, John Negroponte.
Bush would later put Negroponte in as Ambassador to Iraq from 2004-2005 when the terrorist destabilization campaign of that country really took off.
You see, when people are simply worried about being blown up or finding their brother in Abu Ghraib, they don’t pay much attention to puppet politicos stealing the natural resources of their nation or re-writing the constitution to suit their globalist agenda. Just ask any Libyan about that.
Assisting Negroponte in the destabilization campaign of Iraq was a guy named Robert Stephen Ford. Robert Ford was appointed to be the Ambassador to Syria by the Obama administration a mere two months prior to the start of the so-called “revolution”
“Modeled on US covert ops in Central America the Pentagon’s “Salvador Option for Iraq” initiated in 2004 was carried out under the helm of the US Ambassador to Iraq John Negroponte (2004-2005) together with Robert Stephen Ford, who was appointed US Ambassador to Syria in January 2011, less than two months before the beginning of the armed insurgency directed against the government of Bashar Al Assad.” Global Research
Ford is a career politician and one who served a number of years in one of our client states, Bahrain.
In July of 2011, Ford went to a “protest” in Hama and was “cheered” by the so-called protesters. A few days afterwards, Hillary Clinton announced that Assad had “lost legitimacy’ and the game was a foot.
“Acquaintances say Ford is hardly the sort to seek the limelight. But his trip to Hama — where he was greeted by cheering demonstrators waving olive branches — was the most significant gesture that the United States has made to support the Syrian protesters…
…After months of cautiously increasing U.S. criticism of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton declared for the first time Monday that he had “lost legitimacy.” Washington Post July 2011
A video was produced of Ford’s visit to Hama and it appears that they got about 15 to 20 people (probably contractors) to dance around Ford’s car carrying a few (two) olive branches. In the video you can clearly seem some young white guys wearing hats and glasses trying not to look American.
There’s another guy in a red shirt with red facial hair and a red bandana wrapped around his head so you can’t see his red hair. That guy is obviously someone from Ford’s security detail.
As the 15 or so military aged guys hop around Ford’s vehicle, you can clearly see the rest of the people on the street in the background looking on in curiosity then turning their backs and going on with the business of their day.
In fact looking at the video more closely, you can tell the majority of the guys hopping around the car look to be American ex-military in civilian clothing with rags tied to their heads so you can’t see their hair.
It’s clearly a staged event designed to gin up the narrative of the “revolution” in Syria. It’s ridiculous looking especially at the end when you get the close-up on Ford trying to look to busy saving Syria to notice the 15 guys hopping around his car waving olive branches at the camera.
Ford’s link to Negroponte doesn’t prove Hillary ordered the murder of a Syrian official or the murder of 32 children in Houla for that matter.
But what it does prove is the fact that this staged “revolution” not only has the LOOK of previous staged “revolutions” in the past, but it also has some of the same actors and plot lines.
And let’s face it, these kinds of destabilization campaigns have proven to be extremely profitable in the past while the war-criminals and terrorist supporters who orchestrate them are never held accountable, but rather, they are often promoted and given cushy new assignments.
Our unconventional warfare program is still alive and well while some of it’s leading actors are are still treading the boards as they say (a fitting reference considering Ford’s performance in his truck)
Given the mass of propaganda that we have been exposed to like Syrian Danny, the Gay Girl from Damascus, and Mr. Ford’s little psyop truck ride (not to mention the horrendously flawed coverage of the Houla Massacre) how are we not to conclude that everything that happens in Syria with the apparent design to derail any peace initiative, isn’t the work of US and British planners?
Did our special forces plan and conduct an unconventional warfare operation in Syria against Gen. Daoud Rajha at the request of Amb. Ford or Hillary Clinton? Is that what Lavrov was getting at with his statement?
Unfortunately I think it is entirely possible, probable even. It just adds up.
