America is Losing its Covert Syria War: US Sponsored Al Nusra Rebels Defeated by Syrian Armed Forces

Recent reports from the ground suggest that America and its allies are losing their covert war in support of the Al Nusra front. In recent weeks, the US sponsored Al Qaeda affiliated rebels have been decimated by the Syrian Armed Forces.
A nationwide offensive has been launched with the support of Russia and Iran. The weapons supply routes of the rebels has been disrupted:
the [Syrian] army has concentrated on starving, and cutting off “rebel” supply routes and arms corridors, which predominantly run through Northern Lebanon,  Turkey, and Jordan” (See Buying Time in Syria by Phil Greaves, Global Research, May 11, 2013)
Al Nusra is largely made up of mercenaries recruited in Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Covert (Western) special forces and military advisers have also integrated their ranks.
The Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists directly funded by Washington constitute the foot-soldiers of the Western military alliance.
Confirmed by CNN, the Al Nusra terrorists have also been trained in the use of chemical weapons by special forces on contract to the Pentagon:
The training [in chemical weapons], which is taking place in Jordan and Turkey, involves how to monitor and secure stockpiles and handle weapons sites and materials, according to the sources. Some of the contractors are on the ground in Syria working with the rebels to monitor some of the sites, according to one of the officials.
The nationality of the trainers was not disclosed, though the officials cautioned against assuming all are American. (CNN, December 09, 2012, emphasis added)
And once these Al Qaeda rebels had been supplied and trained in the use of WMDs by military contractors hired by the Pentagon,  the Syrian government would then be held responsible for using the WMD against the Syrian people.
US Sponsored Terrorists
According to the most recent report by SANA, the official news agency (March 12):
Units of the armed forces on Saturday continued chasing terrorist groups in several areas in Damascus and its countryside, inflicting heavy losses upon their members, including non-Syrians.
An official source told SANA reporter that an army unit carried out a special operation in al-Beiraqdar neighborhood in Hijeira town that resulted in the killing of a number of terrorists.

The source added that numbers of terrorists were killed and their weapons were destroyed in al-Husseiniyeh town.
An army unit chased members of a terrorist group in al-Fakhoureh area in Wadi Barada market and killed most of them, while another army unit carried out killed four terrorists, including two snipers, in Daraya city.
A unit of the armed forces clashed with an armed terrorist group in Harasta city and killed a number of them, while another unit clashed with an armed terrorist group  in Jobar and eliminated all its members and destroyed their weapons.
Also in Damascus Countryside, a military source said that Army units assumed control of al-Abbadeh area and the surrounding farms in the eastern Ghouta region, and the Armed Forces continued to advance in the town of Jarba from three points and seized control of vital areas around the town in order to cut off supplies from terrorists and encircle them.
An Armed Forces unit clashed with terrorists from Jabhet al-Nusra who were committing robberies and theft in the town of Jassem in Daraa countryside, injuring a number of them and killing others, including a Saudi called Ammar al-Shemmari and a Kuwaiti called Mahmoud al-Mtairi, both of which were leaders in Jabhet al-Nusra and responsible for manufacturing explosives.

Terrorists groups in Aleppo continue to suffer heavy losses at the hands of the army units which carried out today several operations that resulted in destroying amounts of weapons and ammunition in the terrorists’ dens.
SANA reporter quoted an official source as saying that numbers of terrorists were killed and others were injured to the north of the electricity company in al-Sheikh Saeed area and near al-Tawabeen Mosque and at the entrance of Handarat camp.
A heavy machinegun and various types of weapons and ammunition were destroyed in the aforementioned areas.
The source also mentioned that units of the armed forces killed a number of terrorists in the surrounding of the industrial City, the Free Zone, the glass factory and al-Zira’a area.
The army members destroyed the terrorists’ equipment and weapons, including a 23 mm caliber anti-aircraft gun, a heavy machinegun and a number of cars loaded with weapons and ammunition, the source added.
In Minnegh town, an army unit killed members of an armed terrorist group and injured others in al-Alqamiyeh area and near the Agricultural Research Center.
Other terrorists were killed near al-Daqaq factory and to the south of Ibrahim al-Khalil Mosque in Khan al-Assal. A car loaded with weapons and ammunition was destroyed in the area.

Units of the armed forces continued targeting the gatherings and dens of Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists in the countryside of Idleb.
SANA reporter quoted an official source as saying that the army units destroyed weapons and equipment the terrorists had been using in their criminal acts in the surrounding of al-Fanar restaurant in Jabal al-Arabaeen area.
Many terrorists were killed and others were injured in the town of Kfarlata and the city of Ariha that are affiliated to Jabal al-Arbaeen area.
The source added that units of the armed forces destroyed terrorists’ dens, along with the weapons and ammunition inside, in the towns of Ein al-Qasab, Mashmashan, Qatroun, al-Najiyeh, Ein al-Barideh, Bazit, Darkoush, Heish, Tall Salmo, Um Jreen, al-Buweiti, al-Tur’eh and Mseibin.
In the same context, members of a terrorist group were eliminated near M’atrem town on Ariha-Jisr al-Shughour road, while army units continue pursuing terrroists in the surrounding of the brick factory and al-Shabibeh camp.
In the city of Saraqeb, an army unit killed and injured several terrorists affiliated to the so-called ‘al-Tawhid Brigade’ in the surrounding of the Pullman garage. The terrorists’ weapons and equipment were seized.
In the meantime, an army unit eliminated members of an armed terrorist group in Jub al-Ahmar village in the countryside of Hama and destroyed their weapons, which included heavy machineguns.

The Army units continued pursuing the armed teorrist groups in several neighborhoods in Deir Ezzor city and killed scores of them.
An official source told SANA reporter that a unit of the armed forces destroyed a terrorist gathering in al-Sinaa neighborhood, while another unit eliminated an armed terrorist group at al-Siyasieh bridge. (SANA, May 11, 2013)
Ironically, while the Al Nusra terrorists are directly supported and financed by the Pentagon, they are on the State Department’s list of terrorist organizations.
Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent initiatives have largely been instrumental in increasing the flow of money and military support to the terrorists under the disguise of “humanitarian aid”.

Political Turnaround
The UN Security Council is slated to add the al-Nusra Front to its sanctions blacklist.  Ironically  this initiative comes “as the Syrian government asked the Security Council to blacklist al-Nusra last month, but the request was blocked by Britain and France.” (Press TV, May 11, 2013).
Now that Al Nusra, an entity created and sponsored by Western intelligence, is being decimated by the Syrian Armed Forces,  the US and its allies are calling for the channeling of weapons and financial support to the more moderate “non-Islamist” rebel factions.
France’s Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has called on the UN to classify Syria’s al-Nusra Front as a terrorist organisation “in order to differentiate the Islamist group from other opposition forces”
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius pressed the United Nations on Thursday to blacklist Syria’s al-Nusra Front as a terrorist organisation, in an effort to set the militant Islamist group apart from other more moderate opposition forces in the country.
“In order to avoid any ambiguity, we suggest that the al-Nusra Front, which is opposed to [Syrian President] Bashar al-Assad but is also a branch of al Qaeda, be classified as a ‘terrorist organisation on the UN level,’” the French foreign minister stated in an interview with French daily Le Monde.
Fabius also said that France wanted to increase its support of Syria’s opposition organisation, the Syrian National Coalition, highlighting that it needed to “grow, unify and clearly guarantee that the rights of all communities be respected in the event of a regime change”.
What these developments suggest is that Al Nusra rebels are cannon fodder.
Washington in consultation with its Western allies has decided to sacrifice its Al Qaeda affiliated foot-soldiers who are now being decimated by the Syrian army.
While Britain and France had earlier blocked Syria’s earlier initiative to include Al Nusra on the United Nations Security Council terrorist list, the initiative is now emanating not from Syria but from those countries, which until recently were providing the Al Nusra front with money and weapons.
Moreover,  Washington’s direct financial support of Al Nusra, brokered by Obama’s new Secretary of State John Kerry, has become, to say the least, the source of diplomatic embarrassment.
Not to mention the fact that an American citizen who is indirectly suspected, with or without evidence, of supporting an Al Qaeda affiliated entity would immediately be arrested, with of course the exception of Secretary of the State John Kerry, among other senior US officials.
But its all for cause: support “good guy terrorists” with a view to “promoting democracy in Syria”.

The attempted coup in Syria using multinational terrorist and jihadist forces and mercenaries, sponsored, armed and harboured by Western regimes through ME client and NATO states is in support of corporate financial, oil and military-industrial complex interests as well as the NWO agenda directed via Bilderberg and NATO that whose plans comprise a Greater ME under a zionist controlled central government similar to the failed EC-EU experiment. It is not in support of al Nusra (Muslim Brotherhood) as the professor wrote.
He wrote "Al Nusra is largely made up of mercenaries recruited in Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar". That should, I think, read "recruited by...". The mercenaries originally originated in Libya where AQ trains recruits unfettered by NATO or any other "defence" org. The CIA directed mercenary LIFG and AQIM were sent to Syria to escalate the minor anti government protests that the US' CFR, via secret service, had managed to turn violent.  Reports say mercs, extremists and bandits rented from as many as 29 countries are involved. Yemen, Chechnia, Tunisia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi, Lebanon, Jordan and the UAE look to be major sources.
Syrian sources claim that Israeli military are in the town of al Qasyr that will very shortly be totally controlled by the SAA. I advise the Israelis to say their prayers to their god, Lucifer.
The current bilderberg regimes' plot consists of the UN listing al Nusra a terrorist group and then getting the CFR's terrorist associated Muslim Brotherhood and expat party in opposition at its CFR provided(?) Turkish hotel base and its militant front FSA to invite NATO to help the FSA group to destroy its partner al Nusra.
Once the Saudi-Qatar backed al Nusra is officially designated as terrorist then either the Saudis, Qataris and the Saudi funded MB accept the UN listing and stop funding and arming or they must also be declared terrorist associated and Saudi and Qatar must then be ejected from the UN. That would of course relieve the US and IMF of a funding - lending obligation to Egypt.

US Amb. Robert S. Ford Recruited Death Squads
(Sep. 12, 2011) WMR has been informed by reliable sources that the U.S. ambassador to Syria, Robert S. Ford, is the key State Department official who has been responsible for recruiting Arab "death squads" from Al Qaeda-affiliated units in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, and Chechnya to fight against Syrian military and police forces in embattled Syria.
Ford served as the Political Officer at the U.S. embassy in Baghdad from 2004 to 2006 under Ambassador John Negroponte, the U.S. ambassador to Honduras from 1981 to 1985.
Negroponte was a key figure in the covert U.S. program to arm the Nicaraguan contras and his support for vicious paramilitary units in El Salvador and Honduras earned him the nickname of "Mr. Death Squad."
Negroponte tasked Ford with implementing the "El Salvador option" in Iraq, the use of Iraqi Shi'a irregulars and Kurdish Pesh Merga paramilitary forces to target for assassination and kidnapping/ torture Iraqi insurgency leaders in Iraq and across the border in Syria.

Ambassador Ford

Syria's "Salvador Option": US-NATO Sponsored Death Squads Integrate "Opposition Forces"
"The Salvador Option for Syria": The Central Role of US Ambassador Robert S. Ford
The US Ambassador to Syria (appointed in January 2011), Robert Stephen Ford had been part of Negroponte's team at the US Embassy in Baghdad (2004-2005). In this regard, "The Salvador Option" for Iraq laid the groundwork for the launching of an armed insurgency in Syria in March 2011.
US ambassador to Syria, Robert Stephen Ford
In relation to recent events, the killing of 108 people including 35 children in the border city of Houla on May 27 was, in all likelihood, committed by US sponsored death squads under the "Salvador Option for Syria".
The deaths of civilians have been casually blamed by the Western media on the Al Assad government and the incident is being used as pretext for a "humanitarian" R2P intervention by NATO.
Outright media fabrications, including the manipulation of images by the BBC suggest that the Syrian government was not behind the massacre:
"As information trickles out of Houla, Syria, near the city of Homs and the Lebanese-Syrian border, it is becoming clear that the Syrian government was not responsible for shelling to deaths some 32 children and their parents, as periodically claimed and denied by Western media and even the UN itself. It appears that instead, it was death squads at close quarters - accused by anti-government "activists" as being "pro-regime thugs" or "militias," and by the Syrian government as the work of Al Qaeda terrorists linked to foreign meddlers." (See Tony Cartalucci, Syrian Government Blamed for Atrocities Committed by US Sponsored Deaths Squads, Global Research, May 28, 2012)

Qatar drops Canada
Qatari Emir Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani once summed up Qatar’s foreign policy strategy in a single sentence: “Qatar is everyone’s friend”. But in light of Qatar’s hostile effort to have the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) moved from Montreal to Qatar, it appears Canada has been suspended for now from the circle of Qatari friendship.
Having been defriended by Qatar means that we no longer share the same status as other Qatari friends – such as al-Qaeda, Hamas, the Taliban and a host of other terrorist entities financially supported and indulged by that country.
It could also mean that should Canadian politicians seek political asylum in Qatar, they may not be given the same consideration for refuge as some of the world’s most notorious terrorists – like 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, who was reportedly hosted and protected from US authorities by members of Qatari royal family.

False flag opportunity
FEMA to stage massive drill at Pennsylvania amusement park today
[...] On May 13, hundreds of emergency responders within FEMA’s Region III jurisdiction will descend upon Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom near Allentown, effectively turning the entire Lehigh Valley region of eastern Pennsylvania into a mock scene of mass casualties. The Allentown Morning Call states:
“With the terror of the Boston Marathon fresh in mind, Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom will be the site of a large-scale emergency preparedness drill on May 13.
The drill, sponsored by the Northeast Pennsylvania Regional Counter Terrorism Task Force, will center on an emergency incident at the amusement park in South Whitehall Township, replicating “a hazardous condition with multiple casualties during the peak of the park’s summer season.”
Of course, this is only a training exercise. Since the Lehigh Valley is the third most-populated region in Pennsylvania (behind Philadelphia and Pittsburgh), most residents would agree that this type of exercise may prove invaluable in the event of a real emergency.
However, the flip side is that it will give FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security one heck of an opportunity to get their ducks in a row for the next major “false flag” operation.
Like a steroid-crazed meathead pumping iron at the gym, FEMA’s strength and influence over the lives of average Americans only increases after every one of these super-sized exercises.
Previously, we’ve followed the FEMA “money trail” and uncovered the possibility that FEMA grants may be used to pay for false-flag events.
For instance, first responders in Sandy Hook received $143,000 from FEMA in 2010, while $102,300 went to emergency responders in Watertown (MA) in 2012- just fourteen months before the shootout that killed Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

The U.S. has Spent $8 Trillion Protecting the Straits of Hormuz
[...] Roger Stern, a professor at the University of Tulsa National Energy Policy Institute, wrote a study in 2010 in which he estimated that the US had spent $8 trillion on protecting oil cargoes in the Persian Gulf since 1976, when its military presence in the region was boosted following the first Arab oil embargo. This is all despite the fact that only 10% of the oil passing through the straits is actually destined for the US.
Stern explained the true meaning behind the US’s reasons for heading to the Gulf en masse in an interview: “The fear grew out of a belief not just in a global peak oil, but a strong CIA conviction, that was shared by the National Security Council, that the Soviets were running out of oil, that their production was going to tank in just a few years and the Soviets had no choice but to march to the Persian gulf to get oil, so that was the rationale for the idea that a force was needed.”

On the Reyhanli bombings
Anonymous @ http://pennyforyourthoughts2.blogspot.com/2013/05/pt2-false-flag-to-frame-syria-nato.html#comment-form
Some interesting info about the town, Reyhanli, and the tension between the local Turkish residents and the Israeli owned ex-Syrians there.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan Commits Suicide
"...Few days ago witnessed clashes between members of the Jihadist terrorists in the same Reyhanieh town with local residents and tensions escalated when members of the FSA burned Turkish flags in a show of ‘who controls the land’. The same city voted 68% in favor of the Erdogan AKP party in the last elections before having their town turned into a base for these Mujahideen in their holy war against the ‘Kuffar’, the infidels. Economic and social tensions also increased as families of the Jihadists opened shops in the town selling stolen goods from Aleppo at very low prices.
Yesterday, May 11, 2013 the city of Reyhanieh was the scene of bombings of at least 2 cars killing at least 43 and wounding over 100, of course we cannot get further and reliable information as the Turkish government has enforced a total media blackout on the events where ironically for over 2 years it was criticizing the Syrian state for not opening up sensitive locations for western media..! Using this media blackout the Turkish state is able, or think it’s able, to market its version of the events which was immediately conveyed by a swift accusation against the Syrian state involvement in the events, though Erdogan tried to add an option that it might be people opposing the recent peace deal between PKK and Turkish government in addition to accusing the Syrian state...."

Direct and to the point:
Turkey bombs: domestic opinions
The next session of NATO’s North Atlantic Council to be held in Brussels on Wednesday will most probably be dominated by a debate on how the Alliance should react to the twin car bombs that went off in the Turkish town of Reyhanli near the border with Syria Saturday killing 46 people. Turkey has so far not sought an emergency session on the issue.
We have an opinion from an advisor to Turkey’s opposition Republican People’s Party, retired Brigadier General Ali Er:
"The Reyhanli bombings were one the deadliest terror attacks in Turkish history. I believe the Assad regime is the least likely culprit. Indeed, the bombs went off shortly ahead of a planned Moscow visit by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whose talks with Vladimir Putin are expected to focus on alleged Russian sales of S-300 air defence missile batteries to Syria. To bomb a Turkish town in these circumstances would amount to utter lunacy on Assad’s part. I believe the Free Syrian Army or Al-Qaeda is to blame.
As for NATO, of which Turkey is an old and very loyal member, it is unlikely to take collective action against Syria. First, Turkey is a powerful anti-Assad force in its own right. And second, NATO usually spells the United States, and the latter is not under threat from the Assad regime. The deployment of NATO’s Patriot batteries on Turkish territory was by no means meant to protect Turkey or its regional neighbours. It was intended to protect American military and infrastructure installations in the Middle East."
A defence expert of Ankara’s Bilkent University, former chief organizer of Turkey’s army veterans Dr Koray Gurbuz directly blames the United States for the Reyhanli bombings:
"These bombings fall into the overall pattern of all other similar attacks carried out on Turkish territory close to the border with Syria. All were blatant Western provocations aimed at pushing Turkey to war with Syria. As soon as Turkey goes to war with Assad, Israel will follow suit. A regional conflagration would follow, letting all hell loose on the Middle East. This would blow into the sails of the United States, which pursues ambitious geopolitical plans in the Greater Middle East area. The Americans would be happy to have these plans implemented without American blood being spilt."
Not exactly the sort of Turks allowed to speak in the zionist owned western media.

Re: Breaking News Syria
Syrian Army ceases the military operations until evacuating the city of the civilians.
Media sources say that units of Syrian Arab Army has stopped its military operations in al-Qusair city after cordoning the city completely from all the axis and the directions and cracking down on the armed militias that holed inside the city and take the civilians as human shields.
Al-Watan newspaper reports that the decision has been issued as an attempt to evacuate the city from its civilian residents to continue after that the wide-scale battles against the elements of al-Qaeda inside al-Qusair.
On the other hand, the armed militants have threatened the civilians by killing and targeting all who want to get out of the city and not to toe the line to them.
