Today China and Russia vetoed a United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolution and prevented a possible Third World War scenario. That resolution would have enabled the United States of North America, NATO and a motley group of plutocratic, oligarchic, despotic Persian Gulf Arab regimes (which purport to represent something they call ‘The League of Arab States’ to institute regime change in Syria a la Libya.
To Obama the Arab Awakening has presented an opportunity to institute regime change in countries the USA dislikes in its quest for unquestioned global dominance. The powers are not interested in removing the leaderships of criminal, undemocratic, client states in Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, Jordan, Egypt and Kuwait which otherwise act as gas stations and US military bases. Obama’s regime change military strategy is overtly aimed at Syria, Iran, Venezuela and other countries that defy American foreign policy but the real agenda is to encircle and check China and Russia. This colonial policy has no interest in the human rights of the peoples in countries where the ‘leaders’ dutifully take their orders from Washington. Washington itself may speak about civil rights in glowing terms for its own people but its history suggests a lack of any commitment to human rights, as a more fundamental requirement for the peoples of North American.
On the surface the black mascot, Barak Hussein Obama, presents the smiling face of Empire while in the background this anti-Christ, himself, is engaged in all manner of war crimes in many countries. We have discussed this elsewhere. In the case of Syria however, the corporate media, as the propaganda arm of the global establishment, has been manufacturing the consent for military intervention by spinning a narrative which suggests that President Bassar Al-Assad and the Syrian government were committing war crimes against his own peoples. Even in the face of a mountain of credible evidence to the contrary the anti-Christ was almost able to quietly convince the world that an innocent man was indeed guilty and the guilty was innocent.
We have known for nearly a year that the Qataris and the Saudis where providing money, fighters and arms (captured from Libya) and the Americans and NATO were provided logistical and intelligence to subvert the government of Syria – these are the people who preach about state sponsorship of terrorism but themselves are the largest purveyors of terrorism. It was the league of Arab States itself which sent an observer mission to Syria headed by General Dabi to establish the cause célèbre for another ‘humanitarian’ military intervention. Once Dabi’s early communications suggested an unfavorable report was likely, the warmongers in European and American capitals through their minions, the Qataris and the Saudis, withdrew their delegations and said what careful observers already knew, that they should be military intervention anyway by the Arabs, ostensibly. With the Qatari owned Aljazeera pumping out anti- Assad propaganda many times per hour, 24 hours a day, Qatari foreign minister and brother of the Emir, Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabor Al-Thani, smarting after knocking off Khadafy, was sure Assad would be out by January 22nd 2012. The smiling devilish Obama is the man who is quarterbacking all of these dangerous shenanigans while pretending that he is washed in the blood of the lamb – we beg to disagree. Obama seems to believe that Russia could be easily denied access to the Mediterranean, for it is Syria that guarantees that access.
We judged that these events are best located in a wider geo-political circumstance. Our judgment sees NATO and the Americans continuing the Bush wars of conquest behind the charming smiles of Obama. We contend that Obama is first trying to sure up the Zionist state by removing Assad. The removal also limits the strategic depth of Iran. This provides NATO and the Americans with a more vulnerable Iran and a Hezbollah which is cut off from its chief sponsor. But this quest for unquestioning global dominance does not stop with Iran.
The anti-Christ also has its eyes on Russia and China and the Chinese and the Russians seem to be reading from the same playbook. This is clear for a number of reasons. First, it is only necessary for one permanent member of the UNSC to veto a resolution – why did we have two? Second, the Americans have recently renewed their challenge to the Chinese for dominance in the South China Sea. The people of the world are kept in such ignorance that few people see Chinese generals on TV suggesting that China should again take over Indonesia. Indonesia has stupendous natural resources and the American have recently boosted they forces in Australia. Third, the Chinese, the Russians and the Iranians have long been talking about a replacement to the US dollars as the medium for international transactions. This is one of the main reasons the American have gone to war in recent times. Fourth, the Europeans and the American are concerned by attempts by the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and other multilateral formations that are seeking to create alternative centers of power which by-pass them. War may provide the common element that could redirect the economic demands of Europeans and Americans at a time when there is widespread economic hardship. Hardship to which the ‘leaders’ have no effective response. War could also win the powers unquestioned global dominance.
The incestuous relationship between media, war propaganda and the great warlords of our time present a few countries otherwise on the periphery of world politics as their handmaidens in the service of conquest. It is amazing that Qatar and Saudi Arabia, countries neither of which has ever had an election, are both ruled by the same Sunni families for over 200 years. In the case of Qatar it has been ruled by two brothers who less than 15 years ago overthrew their father in a palace coup, promised to have elections then and never did, could find itself as the chief pawn in a pernicious global game of regime change in another Arab State. A student of recent Arab history may conclude that this game is likely to come to their door step in the not too distant future. For once the Americans perceive they have outlived their usefulness they will, sooner or later, seek to have them replaced. Do they not remember Saddam, Khadafy, Mubarak, Ben Ali and many, many more? The desperation of the Europeans and the Americans to extend Empire is also destined to failure. For if there are two more lessons history teaches us well is that once Empire starts to fail not even the anti-Christ himself could have it returned. And secondly, the anti-Christ is unlikely, even after a significant UNSC defeat, to be undaunted.
