Invasion on Syria has started nearly two years ago, when Syria was a prosperous stable country with no apparent problem. Just like in Ukraine, Georgia, and then Egypt, Tunisia, some crowds were hired by some strange shadowy agency.

The purpose was to change the regime first by creating mass demonstration and then concerted international denouncements by mainly the Western media followed by some violence and ultimate resignation by the government. The same pattern was used in country after country with two major exceptions, Libya and Syria. In both cases initial mass demonstration was followed by armed insurrection supported by foreign powers. In Libya, the foreign powers were France, USA, UK and the NATO with limited involvement of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE and Turkey. However, in Syria the armed groups came directly from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE and Turkey to change the regime. Libyan regime collapsed quickly because of the direct attacks from the NATO. In Syria NATO could not take part so quickly because of the opposition raised by Russia and China in the UN Security Council. In the mean time the invading forces were not doing very well and were under serious attack by the government forces. The invading forces were crying for Western military supports. Thus, they got to find an excuse, which was created by a chemical attack on 21 August 2013 on the civilians in the suburb of Damascus and it was blamed on the Syrian Government.

The conflict began in March 2011 as a peaceful and legitimate protest against the ruling regime. Now, mounting evidence suggests that radical Islamist and jihadist groups, some with direct links to al-Qaeda, are increasingly in control of the opposition and running the show in key parts of the country. There are approximately 100,000 rebel fighters in Syria, and as many as half of those may be regarded as Sunni Muslim jihadists – fundamentalist fighters who believe that they are fighting a holy war against the Shias, Alawite Muslims and Christians of Syria. Many of the jihadists are believed to have been trained by al-Qaeda in Iraq and by Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Although Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Turkey have tried to turn this war into a sectarian issue between Shia and Sunny, they are not successful as the Syrian Sunnies educated in secular tradition for decades are not influenced by the extremist Muslims like Salafel and Wahabis of Saudi Arabia.

There is no evidence that Assad Government killed 350 people as reported by the British media or 1439 by the American media or 281 by the French media in gas attacks, but there are a lot of evidence that the foreign invaders from Libya-Saudi Arabia-Turkey-Qatar-UAE-Chechenya-French foreign legion were responsible.

On 29 January 2013 Britain’s Daily Mail disclosed a leaked conversation from a US defense contractor that US Government had approved a plan for use of chemical weapons in order to blame it on Assad. [For reference see: http://www.globalresearch.ca/us-backed-plan-to-launch-chemical-weapon-attack-on-syria-and-blame-it-on-assad-government/5346907]

In May 2013 Turkey found a 2kg nerve gas canister from the hide out of Saudi Arabian Al-Nusra "rebels" who planned to fit it in a rocket [See: http://rt.com/news/sarin-gas-turkey-al-nusra-021/]

Russia also presented evidence to UN that the rebels or foreign invaders have used chemical weapons. The UN concluded the same. In May 2013 UN's senior official Carla Del Ponte said evidence suggested that Syrian rebels 'used Sarin' [See : http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-22424188]

French newspaper Le Figaro reported that that rebel forces trained by the CIA are moving close to Damascus since mid-August, and the first chemical attack took place on 21 August in which several Hazbullah fighters were killed. At the same time, foreign fighters trained by the American Army in Jordan have entered Syria, in Deraa already.

It would be very stupid of Assad if he would use chemical weapons against his own soldiers, his ally Hezbullah fighter, civilians who support him in Damascus when he has been winning the war against the foreign fighters who are called "rebels" or the Free Syrian Army. US-UK-France had no time to wait for the UN report; they are determined to attack Syria.

In May 2013 foreign invaders and the Syrian rebel forces have used chemical weapons against the Syrian army in a number of places. Carla Del Ponte, the commissioner of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry for Syria, told an Italian-Swiss TV station that the findings come after interviews with doctors and Syrian victims now in neighboring countries. There are reports that Saudi Arabia has supplied these chemical weapons to the foreign fighters through Turkey.

If the chemical weapon is the issue, there should be attack on Israel who has recently used chemical weapons against Palestine people in the Gaza strip. The USA should be attacked for using depleted uranium in Iraq, which has killed thousands of Iraqi civilians by causing cancers. Also, the USA has used Agent Orange, a deadly chemical against the people of Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, killing and deforming millions.

In 1997 the US agreed to destroy 31,000 tonnes of sarin, VX, mustard gas and other agents it possessed within 10 years, but it did not. In 2007 it had asked for another 5 years extension from  the U.N. Chemical Weapons Convention, but in 2012 it said that these will be destroyed by 2021 only. Russia has urged Syria to place its chemical weapons under international control to avoid being attacked by the USA, which has already violated the norms. In 1998 the Clinton administration created a law which allowed the president to refuse inspections from the U.N. Chemical Weapons Convention. In 2002 the Bush government forced the sacking of José Maurício Bustani, the director general of the U.N. Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, because Bustani wanted rigorous inspections of US chemical weapons stocks and advised Saddam Hussein to sign the Chemical Weapons Convention, so as to prevent the invasion of USA on Iraq on 2003.

Apart from using millions of gallons of chemical weapons in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, the USA also has used it to destroy the city of Falluja in Iraq in 2004. The Reagan administration supplied chemical weapons to Saddam Hussein in his war against Iran in the 1980s. USA and Russia are still keeping the pathogen of smallpox to be used as biological weapons. The Bush administration wanted to destroy the credibility of the Biological Weapons Convention by refusing to accept its verification process. Israel, supported by USA refuses to ratify the Chemical Weapons Convention. Israel has used white phosphorus as a weapon in Gaza against the Palestine Aras.

If the UN inspectors could find out that the foreign fighters have caused that chemical attack in Damascus on 21 August 2013, would USA-UK-France have invaded Saudi Araia-Qatar-UAE-Turkey! The answer is no. The reason is pure economic, nothing to do with any chemical weapon or with the desire to impose democracy in a dictatorial state, as it was the excuse for the invasion on Libya in 2008 and that on Iraq in 2003. Economics is the real issue.

Oil and Syria:

Oil Nodding Donkey - Syria (PD)Syria has the estimated reserve of petroleum worth about 2.5 billion barrels. This is higher than the reserves of all other Arab countries except Iraq. Thus Syria is potentially a very important country regarding the production and exports of petroleum. Syrian people, unlike that of other Arab population are educated and technology minded due its very close relationship with the Soviet Union and Russia. Syria is also fortunate to have a very large reserve of natural gas. Thus, it has every potential to have large scale chemical industries. Since 1964 Syrian oil and natural gas fields are in the public sector of Syria. Foreign companies, except the Russians, are not allowed to enter that sector.

Until the disturbances have started, the annual income Syria used to earn at least $4 billion every year from its export of petroleum, but that has stopped now as the major oil fields in Deir Ezzor are now in the control of the foreign invaders.

Curse of Oil:

In Iraq, most important petroleum fields are already taken over by the US-French-UK oil companies. Iraq has lost control of its oil resources. The same plan is here for the Syrian oil fields. That was the reason foreign invaders have targeted these oil fields to deprive Syria of its export earnings. In future when the occupation of Syria would be complete Western oil companies will take over these oil fields after getting rid of the Russians, who had discovered and developed these fields before.

There are more to it. The Foreign forces are guided by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qtar because of their plan to set up a long pipeline, controlled by US and other Western oil companies, to export natural gas to Europe and Syria is an impediment to that plan. Thus, the Syrian war is the war of the natural gas pipeline. During the invasion of Iraq in 2003 , the pipeline of Kirkuk-Banias connecting Iraq to Syria was destroyed by the US forces. However, recently an alternative pipeline between Ain Zalah and Suweidiva was opened to connect Iraq to Syria. Plans are there to set up more pipeline for both petroleum and natural gas. The purpose of these proposed pipelines is to export both petroleum and natural gas of Iraq directly to the European market. Another development is possibly more important.

In 2011 Syria, Iraq and Iran had made an arrangement to construct a pipeline to export Iranian natural gas to Europe via Iraq and Syria first and then to Lebanon and ultimately to Greece through submarine pipeline. This proposed pipeline would be 6000 miles long, with a capacity of 100-120 million cubic feet of natural gas every day. The estimated cost will be at least $10 billion. In 2013 Syria, Iran and Iraq had finalize the agreement to share the cost. Western oil companies are against this plan. These, which will be surely destroyed if the foreign forces can occupy Syria. This is the reason for the war.

The first target of the foreign invaders was the city of Homs in Syria, near the Turkish border. Homs is the place where the existing gas pipeline from Egypt ends. This pipeline was established by the Western oil companies to export natural gas from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE. The plan was to extend the pipeline from Homs to Turkey to export natural gas from the Arab countries in the Persian Gulf area to Europe. Recently Syria has accepted the Iran-Iraq proposal to have pipelines connecting Iran to Europe via Syria, Lebanon and Greece and rejected the plan of the Western oil companies of the alternative route via Turkey

As a result Syria has invited the wrath of the Arab states of the Gulf. These countries have sent terrorists trained by Taliban in Pakistan and the Arab speaking soldiers of the French Foreign Legion, a lot of them from Libya to destroy Syria and the planned pipeline from Iran to Lebanon. Al-Queada and Taliban also have joined in. This is the reason US Secretary of States, John Kerry wants to hand over Afghanistan to Taliban as the price.

Long History:

Afghanistan was destroyed by the US supported Pakistani Muzzahideens in 1992 because of the same reason. The plan was to build a gas pipeline from Turkmenistan to Pakistan via Afghanistan to avoid the existing route via Russia. The socialist government of Afghanistan would not have allowed it given its close relationship with the Soviet Union. Thus, it had to go. However, there was a dispute between the Muzzahideen Government of Afghanistan and the UNICAL, the US energy company constructing the pipeline. Thus, Taliban was formed out of the ranks of the Pakistani army, who took over Afghanistan replacing the Muzzahideens. However, Iran and Russia created a new armed group called the Northern Alliance to fight the Taliban. As a result, the proposed pipeline was never finished.

Thus, in Syria a similar situation has developed, which was planned in 2001 by General Wesley Clark who in his “Plan for the New Century”, a document prepared by a group in USA declared invasion plans for Iraq, Libya, Syria and Iran to create the entire Middle East and North Africa into a Western allied territory.

The Rationale:

The reason why USA and its western allies are so much interested in the oil and gas resources of the Middle East lies on the economics of US Dollar. US Dollar since 1972 is not backed by gold but instead it is just a paper currency, which USA can print at will. It is essential to know that the US government does not control the US Dollar, but the Federal Reserve Bank (FRB) of USA, which is a private enterprise, does. FRB alone can print US Dollar and in exchange for some interests lends to the US banks. The US Government can exchange that Dollar for any commodities or services anywhere in the world using that paper currency. No other country has that facility to print its own money to pay for imports, only USA has. As a result, USA can buy anything for free from anywhere of the world. The value of Dollar depends on its control over the international trade of the World. Petroleum and natural gas dominate the world trade considering its share of the value of the total world trade. Petroleum and natural gas are traded, except for a few countries, in terms of US Dollar only. This system provides and protects the value of US Dollar; otherwise it will have no value at all. Thus, it is extremely important for the FRB to protect US Dollar by controlling the oil and gas resources of the world.

The question is which private companies control the FRB, if not the US Government. They are: Rothschild Bank of London, Warburg Bank of Hamburg, Rothschild Bank of Berlin, Lazard Brothers of Paris, Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York, Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy, Goldman, Sachs of New York, Warburg Bank of Amsterdam, and Chase Manhattan Bank of New York. There are other Banks and individuals who also have significant shares of the FRB. They are: First National Bank, National Bank of Commerce, James Stillman National City Bank, Hanover National Bank, Chase National Bank, J.P. Morgan (Equitable Life/Mutual Life), William Rockefeller, Paul Warburg and 13 other individuals. These banks and individuals also control all major Western oil and gas companies. For example, Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo own the four major oil companies, Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell, BP and Chevron Texaco.

Thus the interest of the FRB and the Western oil companies who buys oil and natural gas using US Dollar which they themselves print through their control of the FRB, coincides. Rockefeller, one of the owner of the FRB and some major oil companies also controls the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), which is the think tank for the US government on foreign affairs. The Council on Foreign Relations along with the companies that own the FRB also control most important major newspapers and magazines thus controlling the Western media as a whole.

The countries that have refused to accept US Dollar for payments for their exports of oil and natural gas were Iraq of Saddam Hussaein, Libya of Gadaffi, Venezuela, Syria, Iran and the old Soviet Union. The Soviet Union was destroyed by Gorbachev, Yeltsin and their associates creating miseries for millions of people in the entire Eastern Europe and Eurasia. Oil and gas resources were then taken over by the Western oil companies but Vladimir Putin has tried to nationalize only a fraction of that vast resources. As a result, Putin has become the devil incarnated according to the Western media. Iraq and Libya were invaded and the Western oil companies have taken over their oil fields. There was a coup attempt in Venezuela to kill Hugo Chavez, who is not alive anymore. Syria is on the verge of total destruction. Iran is the next target. When these countries will be occupied Western oil companies would take over the entire oil and gas resources of the world except that in Russia. It will be easy for them to exclude Russia from the oil and gas trading and thus Russia’s economy can be destroyed. To achieve that Western countries are using the so-called Islamic terrorists to destabilize these rebel oil producing countries with the ultimate aim to destabilize Russia, which USA still considers its prime enemy. This is the very reason Russia is supporting Syria when the NATO’s invasion of Syria is planned long in advance.
