Finian Cunningham (SCF) : US-led Western regime change in Syria might be described as a process of creative destruction. Like Schumpeter’s economic concept of cyclical creative destruction, so too Washington’s political machinations in Syria seem to be playing out likewise.

We begin with the premise that the humanitarian crisis in Syria over the past nearly three years is largely as a result of a Western covert proxy war inflicted on that country. The objective is to destabilize, terrorize and eventuate regime change in the Arab country…
The crisis afflicting Syria with over 130,000 dead and nearly nine million people displaced from their homes – nearly 40 per cent of the total population – would not be occurring if it were not for the infiltration of that country with massive flows of weapons, fighting funds and foreign mercenary brigades. US and NATO Special Forces, along with Western military intelligence, have worked with Saudi, Qatari, Jordanian, Israeli and Turk allies to foment this externally driven insurgency. All under the cover of an Arab Spring revolt.
The highly criminal process has attempted to destroy a sovereign country in order to create a new political order, one that is bereft of the existing political establishment under President Bashar Al Assad. This new order brought about by regime change would be amenable to Western interests in terms of Middle East politics and oil economics. In particular, the desired pro-Western regime would deny Russia, China and Iran of an important ally in the Mediterranean.
Western desire for regime change in Syria is well documented, according to American journalist Seymour Hersh, going back to at least 2007 when the George W Bush Presidency conceived of a plan to undermine the Syrian-Iranian resistance against Washington’s regional hegemony. Other historical studies argue that Western plans for regime change in Syria hark even further back to the 1950s when Dwight Eisenhower was US president.
Last year, former French Foreign Minister Roland Dumas revealed that he was approached two years before the outbreak of latest conflict in Syria in March 2011 by British political figures, who told him of a plot to unseat the Syrian government.
So, our premise of Western regime change being the driver of conflict and humanitarian crisis in Syria is on solid ground.
Intelligent observations contrast with zombified one voice western media propaganda.

Western assassination of Arab Culture by modo-colonialist Vice Kings
Christof Lehmann (nsnbc), - On 4 January the historical Lebanese Al Sa’eh Library in Tripoli was burnt down by the hands of terrorists. Was the arson a symptom of a Western and Zionist war on Arab culture, executed via the colonialist – installed regimes of Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and their mercenary brigades under the banners of Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood? Is there a basis for holding those who planned the war on Syria accountable for genocide?
Those who doubt the accuracy of this implied statement may recall the words of the former French Foreign Minister Roland Dumas, spoken during an appearance on the French TV channel LPC, in June 2013, when Dumas admitted that the war on Syria was planned two years before “The Arab Spring” and that top-British officials asked him, two years before the first protests erupted in Syria in early 2011, whether he wanted to participate in subverting Syria with the help of “rebels”. More exactly, Dumas said:
“I am going to tell you something. I was in England two years before the violence in Syria on other business. I met with top British officials, who confessed to me, that they were preparing something in Syria. … This was in Britain not in America. Britain was organizing an invasion of rebels into Syria. They even asked me, although I was no longer Minister of Foreign Affairs, if I would like to participate. Naturally, I refused, I said I am French, that does not interest me”.
For those who have doubts about the involvement of Zionists, or rather those who fear being denounced as “anti-semite“, which is understandable because international Zionism is quite so efficient at using its “Anti Defamation League” to denounce anyone who dares to overtly oppose Israeli policy as “anti-Semite”, it is recommendable to continue listening to the former French Foreign Minister who said:
“This operation goes way back. It was prepared, preconceived and planned… in the region, it is important to know that this Syrian regime has a very anti-Israeli stance”.
“Consequently, everything that moves in the region…- and I have this from a former Israeli Prime Minister who told me ´We will try to get on with our neighbors but those who don’t agree with us will be destroyed. It is a type of politics, a view of history, why not after all. But one should know about it”.
The statement has been published in an article in nsnbc international on 16 June 2013, along with the original audio with Roland Dumas in French.
