A new article out on August 26 revealed that the United States and the UK are running the revolution in Syria out of a townhouse in a posh neighborhood in Istanbul. This news comes as another article by The New York Times details how the U.S. dominates global weapons sales, accounting for as much as 78% of the total trade in armaments.
The Syrian situation is presented as part of an “Arab Spring” rebellion. In truth, though, the turmoil is orchestrated by the West for its own geopolitical interests that include the hunt for natural resources like oil as well as making it safe for more Israeli land grabs.
In Istanbul, according to reports, dozens of Syrian dissidents have been brought to Turkey to be trained as leaders of the Assad opposition by the U.S. State Department’s Office of Syrian Opposition Support (OSOS) and Britain’s Foreign Office. They are given satellite communications and computers to act as a local “hub” linking rebels to the outside world.
The OSOS has officially set aside $25M to fund political opponents of Bashar al Assad, and the Foreign Office in the UK has handed out another £5M.
“There are groups inside and outside Syria beginning to plan for the day when Assad goes,” said the British consultant, “because he will go.”
