John Kerry, Secretary of State told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad “will be held accountable” for the chemical attack on Syrian civilians being blamed on the Syrian government.
The Obama administration is working overtime and do not want any ripples in their plan to use Syria as an excuse to go to war.
Netanyahu has been told to keep his mouth shut by Obama. News about this message comes on the heels of another Israeli security cabinet meeting being canceled; citing a “delicate situation”.
The pending attack on Syria demands the necessity of the “right argument” or else the US could be accused of arbitrarily causing a global conflict.
The price of oil is being affected by the suspenseful wait for Congressional approval for war with Syria.
Current conditions will place Saudi Arabia in the forefront of the conflict, taking the most profit from regions being pulled into the conflict with Syria.
Because of the money on the line, Saud al-Faisal, minister of Saudi Arabia, has voiced support for the military strike threatened by Obama.
The proxy war being fought by the Free Syrian Army (FSA) is also backed by Saudi Arabia.
Because Syria’s long-standing relationship with Iran, Saudi Arabia would benefit from this destruction of this nation.
It is in the national interest of the Saudi government to make the regime change pending in Syria of utmost importance.
Syria is sitting on tons of petrol which could make them a formidable competitor for Saudi Arabia.
A military display by the US government in support of the Saudi Arabian agenda is expected to send a clear message to the Arab world that technocratically controlled countries will crush independent nations.
Russian President Vladimir Putin will attend the G20 Summit with the pressure of this threat of war looming in the distance as the stance of the Russian government is paramount.
British and US government intelligence claims that chemical weapons were used by Assad’s government against Syrian citizens.
According to a report provided by these controlled agencies of propaganda, “unlike previous attacks that used small amounts of chemicals and were aimed at terrorising people, this attack was tactical and aimed at regaining territory.”
Sergey Lavrov, foreign minister of the Russian government, said that the British and US intelligence communities are “absolutely unconvincing” in their rhetoric and there is “nothing concrete, no geographical co-ordinates or details … and no proof the test was done by professionals.”
France also claims that Assad was behind the chemical attacks according to their government intelligence.
Their documents state that “the analysis of intelligence that we possess today leads us to estimate that on Aug. 21, 2013, the Syrian regime launched an attack on some areas of the Damascus suburbs held by opposition units, bringing together conventional means and the massive use of chemical agents.”
The report also claims: “These past events and the simultaneous and massive use of chemical agents in the night of Aug. 21, 2013 in the Damascus suburbs confirm that the Syrian regime deliberately crossed a line. Our services have information … leading us to believe that other actions of this nature could be carried out again.”
Obama invited Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham to sit down and discuss how Congress will be coerced into supporting this war.
McCain and Graham are pushing a resolution through that will decide Syria’s fate.
In attendance during the meeting were:
• Susan Rice, national security adviser
• John Kerry, secretary of State
• Chuck Hagel, secretary of defense
• James Clapper, director of National Intelligence (NI)
• General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
Obama is focusing on McCain and Graham for “key votes” that he will need to win over the Senate.
The president said that he believes that the US “should launch an attack in response to the attack.”
McCain said: “We still have significant concerns, but we believe there is in formulation a strategy to upgrade the capabilities of the Free Syrian Army and to degrade the capabilities of Bashar Assad. Before this meeting, we had not had that indication.”
Graham continued: “If we don’t get Syria right, Iran is surely going to take the signals that we don’t care about their nuclear program. … If we lost a vote in Congress dealing with the chemical weapons being used in Syria, what effect would that have on Iran and their nuclear program?”
Assad is being quoted by the French news media as saying that the USand France to provide proof to support their allegations, but that their leaders “have been incapable of doing that, including before their own peoples. If the Americans, the French or the British had a shred of proof, they would have shown it beginning on the first day.”
Calling Obama “weak”, Assad allegedly said: “We believe that a strong man is one who prevents war, not one who inflames it.”
