New Government Being Planned for Syria
Opposition eyes Syria seat at UN, Arab League ...Participants pose for a group picture during a meeting to form a new Syrian opposition group called the National Coalition of Forces of the Syrian Revolution and Opposition in Doha late on November 11, 2012. The opposition Syrian National Coalition has urged the international community to help it take over Syria's seats at the UN and Arab League as part of efforts to set up a transitional government. The group, which has been widely recognised by Arab and Western nations as the sole representative of the Syrian people, also asked to be given regime assets frozen as part of international sanctions on the Damascus government. In statement late Thursday, January 10, the coalition urged "the international community to end all legitimacy of the Assad regime by granting Syria's seat at the UN and Arab League to the transitional government" being set up by the opposition. – Rappler.com
Dominant Social Theme: These things happen. You have to break some eggs, etc.
Free-Market Analysis: Is the current Syrian administration doomed? There are or were YouTube videos of UN vehicles carrying armed "rebels" into Syria to fight against the government. These were said to be the same "al Qaeda" fighters that had added to forces overthrowing Syria's Muammar Gaddafi.
And now they are fighting in Syria. It is these individuals along with other apparent Western surrogates that are now moving to create a "transitional government" just as they did in Libya. The blueprint is almost entirely the same and therefore there are surely unseen hands behind its formation.
Those hands no doubt belong to the power elite that is trying to build world government and is destabilizing the Middle East to do so. The idea is to create a Muslim crescent in the Middle East that can serve as a fictitious enemy of the West – allowing further Draconian "terrorist" legislation like the Patriot Act to be passed.
The other positive, from an elite point of view, is that the many wars – and more coming – allow for the addition of more troops in the region. It justifies having a large footprint on the ground that in turn gives the West a lot of influence.
What this cobbled together opposition is doing now is figuring out ways to gain funding. The idea of applying to the UN is a convenient gambit because it allows the West to fund the insurgency with donated dollars from around the world. Here's some more from the article:
The opposition Syrian National Coalition has urged the international community to help it take over Syria's seats at the UN and Arab League as part of efforts to set up a transitional government.
The group, which has been widely recognised by Arab and Western nations as the sole representative of the Syrian people, also asked to be given regime assets frozen as part of international sanctions on the Damascus government.
In statement late Thursday, January 10, the coalition urged "the international community to end all legitimacy of the Assad regime by granting Syria's seat at the UN and Arab League to the transitional government" being set up by the opposition.
The coalition, set up in Qatar in November and grouping the majority of opposition forces, including a unified military command, said it was striving to set up a transitional government.
"The Coalition is working with committees composed of technocrats who will serve as the nucleus for future ministries," the statement read.
Qatar (above) is another familiar name. Though it was never reported by the mainstream media, little Qatar played a giant role in the Syrian rebellion. Even today, Qatar supposedly has some 6,000 heavily armed troops maintaining the "peace" in Libya.
And now Qatar is adopting a similar role for Syria. Right now it is reportedly organizing a transnational government. But surely Qatar's role shall involve troops, as well. The advantage from the US and NATO point of view is that Qatar is a monarchy and the US-controlled Qatar king can do anything required without complication or publicity.
We can see clearly the forces being marshaled against Syria just as they were against Libya and previously Iraq. In fact, yesterday we reported on rumors circulating that Syria was in danger of losing control of a great deal of uranium.
The implication is clearly that Western forces may have to be inserted into Syria to ensure that the uranium doesn't fall into the "wrong hands."
There is a pincer-like strategy at work here. The power elite will ratchet up pressure for a Western invasion. Meanwhile, various "rebels" will agitate for a formal government in exile.
It must not be pleasant to be Bashar al-Assad right now. He must know that the combined might and Money Power of the power elite has turned on him. No tears need to be shed for Assad or his thuggish family but the spectacle of certain Western interests taking out yet another "legitimate" government is troubling – if only for its almost laughing lawlessness.
Certainly, it is simply not credible for the West to insist anymore these are somehow home-grown movements – though this is exactly what is maintained. AYM and the CIA have each played a part in insurgencies in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and now Syria – and probably many more as well.
What is the REAL reason for these wars and Western involvement in them? We think we know and have reported on the reality as we understand it. Just search for "Islamic Crescent""and "Daily Bell."
Conclusion: Where is the mainstream media? What we understand is not difficult to comprehend. A few questions would expose the actual agenda behind these many terrible wars. We will look forward to an expose in the New York Times. Or maybe not.

Read "War on Syria" by Tony Cartalucci and Nile Bowie, it's available for free. Explains what is going on in the Middle East and Africa.
Reply from The Daily Bell
The powers-that-be are trying to convert Syria into a CIA-controlled Islamic Republic. We've written about this for well over a year. There are other reasons as well, of course, but in large part the power-elite is trying to induce further tension between East and West.

"France has begun a military intervention in Mali with airstrikes, responding to the country's request for assistance to counter an offensive by Islamist militants." Yep, there is about 400 Al Qaida guys within Tuaregs. This is actually output of overthrowing Gaddafi when Tuaregs took weapons and moved to their territory.

As an addendum to my previous post, here in an except for a speech made by Bashar Al-Assad to the Syrian people on January 6, 2013.
"We are fighting those, most of whom are non-Syrians, who came for twisted concepts and fake terms they call Jihad, but nothing can be farther from Jihad and Islam. Most of them are terrorists instilled with al-Qaeda thought, and I believe that most of you know how this kind of terrorism was fostered three decades ago in Afghanistan by the West and with Arabs' money. After the mission of these terrorists ended with the disintegration of the Soviet Union and its departure from Afghanistan, terrorism broke loose and started hitting everywhere in the Arab world, the Islamic world and then moved to the West. They tried to get rid of it through Afghanistan War and in the aftermath of Iraq's War, but this terrorism was unyielding and pervasive, and started to infiltrate Western societies. So, the events in the Arab world, especially in Syria, presented the Western powers with an opportunity to transfer as many terrorists as possible to Syria to turn it into the land of Jihad, hence dispensing with two troublesome rivals at the same time through getting rid of the terrorists and weakening Syria which is a nuisance for the West."

I think the real reason for these wars is the fact most democracies have devolved into pathocracies.

Back in the summer I went into a local Syrian deli, and happened to strike up a conversation with the owner and his wife over the situation in Syria. They were there in April 2012 to visit family (they are ethnic Syrians, now residing in Canada), and were visiting their home town, somewhere in the north, close to the Turkish border. They said they witnessed large volumes of "rebel" troops crossing the border from Turkey, many of whom they described as Islamic fundamentalists.
While this is common knowledge, one thing they said did surprise me. According to the couple I talked to, one dominant theme that they noted to be prevalent amongst the ideology and motivation behind these fundamentalist rebels was the belief that once Syria was "liberated", they would set up an Islamic state adherent to the fundamental principles -Sharia- of Islam.
This is interesting because in a way it validates the speculation that the elites are trying to set up an Islamic crescent in the middle east, so as to further validate the "war on terror".
These people that I talked to are themselves supporters of Assad, as well as his government. Their take on the rebels was that they were nothing more than a rag-tag group of thugs (to put it lightly), who were a threat to the true democracy of the country.

You know it may be elite who have western ties but it is not the Western Peoples they represent. We westerners are sick and tired of being used by these elite in the political arena and yet we can't seem to get away from their grip on our own nation. heck many a nation in the world are now controlled by these elite and they are not all westerners. some in fact are Iranian, Saudi Arabian and Turkish.
To lable it western western nations is a misnomer meant to cause division and strife between the west and the middle east.

Obama and Putin are definitely "owned" and could both go up in a puff of smoke as needed.
Too bad the Syrian take down is still being referred to as a revolution. It's anything but a people's uprising. It doesn't seem that in the past 50-60 years there has been a single genuine, to the barricades type revolution. Can't think of any that didn't have money power somehow influencing the new leadership. Cuba? Haiti before U.S./U.N. takeover? China? All woven into the quilt of industrial-business power.

So what about Russia and China DB? What is their part in this game? Is Putin his own man or is he owned like Obama? If so is he owned by the same people? Inquiring minds want to know.

Amazing how the US takes over a small weak country through subversion using the military and freezes their assets and most of the time steals those assetsfor their own use.

I get now. The U. S. and our NATO allies invaded Afghanistan, and have stayed there, for capitalist reasons. We wanted access to Al Qaeda so that we (and the UN, of course) could export them all over the Muslim world. I wonder when we'll get around to exporting significant numbers of them to other parts of the world?
