THE WISE SHALL UNDERSTAND

US, France, UK, Turkey, Italy Prepare for Military Intervention in Syria

| February 23, 2012

Despite public denials, military preparations for intervention in the horrendous Syrian crisis are quietly afoot in Washington, Paris, Rome, London and Ankara. President Barack Obama is poised for a final decision after the Pentagon submits operational plans for protecting Syrian rebels and beleaguered populations from the brutal assaults of Bashar Assad’s army, debkafile’s Washington sources disclose.

The Sunday Times correspondent Marie Colvin and the French Figaro video-photographer Remi Ochik died Wednesday in the heavy shelling of a fortified building which housed Western journalists making their way into Homs under the protection of Syrian rebels. Three other Western journalists were injured. Western military sources reported Thursday that this undercover Western press center was maintained by the rebels in tight secrecy.

This process is also underway in allied capitals which joined the US in the Libyan operation that ended Muammar Qaddafi’s rule in August, 2011. They are waiting for a White House decision before going forward.
In Libya, foreign intervention began as an operation to protect the Libyan population against its ruler’s outrageous crackdown on dissent. It was mandated by UN Security Council. There is no chance of this in the Syrian case because it will be blocked by a Russian veto. Therefore, Western countries are planning military action of limited scope outside the purview of the world body, possibly on behalf of “Friends of Syria,” a group of 80 world nations which meets for the first time in Tunis Friday, Feb. 24, to hammer out practical steps for terminating the bloodbath pursued by the Assad regime. 
The foreign ministers and senior officials – Russia has excluded itself – will certainly be further galvanized into action by the tragic deaths of two notable journalists Wednesday, Feb. 22, on the 19th day of the shelling of Homs.
Preparations for the event are taking place at the Foreign Office in London. Wednesday, Foreign Secretary William Hague said: Governments around the world have the responsibility to act…and to redouble our efforts to stop the Assad regime’s despicable campaign of terror.”
Hague pointedly said nothing about removing the Syrian ruler. Nor did he spell out the efforts need to stop the campaign of terror. debkafile’s military sources note that he left these issues open because a decision by President Obama about if and how the US will act is pending until the Pentagon submits operational plans to Commander-in-Chief Obama.
The US president is also waiting for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s report on the mood at the Tunis conference. He wants to know in particular if Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Qatar and the UAR will support US-led Western intervention in Syria, both politically and financially. source – DEBKA

  1. Gary corshia says:

    The biggest issue will be retaliation against Israel which we know will happen

  2. I see this as the 2nd serious step in the process to having direct American military intervention in the prophesied division of Israel (Dan.11.37ff). It will likely start as the same kind of action we saw in Libya and are about to see in Syria.

    Saudi Arabia would be very unwise to back the removal of Assad, because they are soon to be overthrown by the same forces that are at work in Syria and that have taken over in Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia, and who have been in charge in Lebanon and the Gaza – the Iranian funded Moslem Brotherhood.

    The US is in the process of removing more or less controllable Moslem tyrants and replacing them with extremist ideologues. And both Russia and China have decided to back the ideologues against the Western forces.

    The pieces are being maneuvered to set up the end game. The end game, as far as all the branches of the New World Order is concerned, is the destruction of Israel. All 3 major players – West (NATO/US), East (China/Russia) and South (Moslem countries) – are hell-bent to control God’s Land and destroy any and all of his people. All 3 are under the influence of the prince of the power of the air. They just don’t know it.

  3. Paul says:

    Satan Is working overtime, he knows his time is short. We are living in the last days. Things are only going to get worse not better. The next President we get will not be able to fix our problems, its only going to get worse This world is being made ready for the Antichrist, and he is waiting in the wings, there will never be “True” peace on this earth until the lord comes back and sets up his kingdom.
