War Against Syria: Ten Years of Pain - American Herald Tribune. I’ve been watching this conflict for over eight years, virtually every day, all day and made seven extended research trips traveling around the country mostly on my own with Syrian friends as guides.
I have no affiliations of any kind, am self-funded through crowd funding to help cover the cost of the trips, and accept no money or any type of payment or salary. I became obsessed with finding out the truth of this war in 2012 and obsessed I remain. As I’ve watched the war from both outside and inside Syria, I’ve also seen the news media acting throughout like a herd of cattle, all with mad cow disease, stampeding off the cliff of truth together. Inside Israel’s Secret Program to Back Syrian Rebels. Israel secretly armed and funded at least 12 rebel groups in southern Syria that helped prevent Iran-backed fighters and militants of the Islamic State from taking up positions near the Israeli border in recent years, according to more than two dozen commanders and rank-and-file members of these groups.
The military transfers, which ended in July of this year, included assault rifles, machine guns, mortar launchers and transport vehicles. Israeli security agencies delivered the weapons through three gates connecting the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights to Syria—the same crossings Israel used to deliver humanitarian aid to residents of southern Syria suffering from years of civil war.
Israel also provided salaries to rebel fighters, paying each one about $75 a month, and supplied additional money the groups used to buy arms on the Syrian black market, according to the rebels and local journalists. “This is a lesson we will not forget about Israel. It does not care about … the people. Exclusive: Obama authorizes secret U.S. support for Syrian rebels.
Untrusted Connection. Terrorists may have benefited from millions worth of US aid for Iraq & Syria – report. A recent USAID audit report found that some of its humanitarian programs for war-torn Syria and Iraq might have assisted terrorist groups.

Declassified CIA Report Exposes 25 Years of US Plans to Destabilize Syria. Anti-Assad protesters burn a picture of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad with ‘Corruption’ written across his face. (AP/Kostas Tsironis) SYRIA — While the nearly seven-year-long sectarian “civil war” in Syria is widely believed to have started in 2011, revelations in recent years have shown that the sectarian war that has sunk Syria into chaos actually precedes the “official” start of the conflict.
In 2010, Wikileaks published hundreds of thousands of classified State Department cables, including a 2006 cable showing that destabilizing the Syrian government was a primary goal of U.S. policy in the Middle East. The ultimate intention was to topple Iran, one of Syria’s closest allies. Ian56 DIA Emails: ISIS was deliberately armed and funded by Obama & Hillary Clinton.
The terrorist threat has been deliberately manufactured and exacerbated by:- Invading Iraq and the resultant highly predictable sectarian civil war, that was deliberately encouraged by US actions following the overthrow of Saddam Using Al-Qaeda Extremists to overthrow Gaddafi in Libya and turning Libya into a failed State Attempting to overthrow Assad with Al-Qaeda and ISIS etc. and turning Syria into a failed State Recently released Defense Intelligence Agency emails from August 2012 reveal that the Obama admin knowingly armed, trained and funded Al-Qaeda and ISIS and expected a Caliphate to be set up in Eastern Syria.

Benghazi, Libya – Lending credence to the theory that ISIS operates as a strategic asset of the Israeli Mossad, Libyan security forces have arrested an ISIS leader in the north-eastern Libyan city of Benghazi – who just so happens to be a Mossad agent.
The man arrested, Ephraim Benjamin, was allegedly an Israeli Mossad agent who began his operation following the 2011 toppling of the Libyan government that resulted in the murder of Libyan President Moammar Ghaddafi, according to the Israeli website Inian Merkazi, which translates to “Central Issues.” The Mossad agent reportedly held a leading position in ISIS after mingling with Libyans during the fall of Ghaddafi. He then became a prominent imam of a large mosque in Benghazi, Libya’s second largest city, before becoming a ISIS leader who commanded a contingent of upwards of 200 terrorists.
Advertisment. Why The Conflict In Syria Was Always Israel's War. After years of fomenting the Syrian conflict from the shadows, the U.S. has recently seemed to back away from its push to militarily intervene in the embattled nation, instead choosing to focus its saber-rattling and destabilization efforts on other theaters.
The consequence of this has seemingly been the winding down of the long-running conflict, now entering its seventh year. Buoyed by Russia, Iran and Lebanon, the Syrian government led by President Bashar al-Assad has managed to retake vast swaths of territory, all while surviving and growing stronger over the course of a largely foreign-funded onslaught. As a result, many of the governments that were instrumental in funding and arming the so-called “moderate” opposition have begun to extricate themselves, unwilling to further test the resilience of Assad or the Syrian people.
Israel’s comments should come as no surprise, however, as the foreign-funded and manufactured conflict in Syria was always Israel’s war. Adding. Untitled. VISIT MY NEW WEB SITE: stephenlendman.org (Home – Stephen Lendman).

Earlier, Saudi Arabia was caught red-handed supplying terrorists in Syria with Chemical Weapons (CWs). So was Turkey, discovered shipping toxic sarin gas cross-border. Perhaps Jordan and Israel supplied CWs. Syrian forces never used them at any time throughout years of war. On August 6, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said US and UK-made CWs were found in liberated Syrian areas, noting: Untitled. Despite the now historical lies exposed in the wake of the devastating US invasion and occupation of Iraq beginning in 2003, the United States has attempted to use similar lies regarding weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) repeatedly as a pretext for similar wars including in neighboring Syria.
The Syrian government – perhaps in an effort to head off another round of accusations, threats, and direct military aggression carried out by the US – is leveling accusations against the United States itself and terrorist organizations it has funded, armed, and backed for the past 6 years of using chemical weapons – primarily to create a pretext for wider war. As the Syrian military retakes territory from foreign-backed militants, munition warehouses and stockpiles, including those used for the production and deployment of chemical weapons for staged attacks, are being systematically uncovered.

The Real Reason The West is Pushing War With Russia – Collective Evolution. How America Armed Terrorists in Syria. Three-term Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, a member of both the Armed Services and Foreign Affairs committees, has proposed legislation that would prohibit any U.S. assistance to terrorist organizations in Syria as well as to any organization working directly with them. Equally important, it would prohibit U.S. military sales and other forms of military cooperation with other countries that provide arms or financing to those terrorists and their collaborators.
Gabbard’s “Stop Arming Terrorists Act” challenges for the first time in Congress a U.S. policy toward the conflict in the Syrian civil war that should have set off alarm bells long ago: in 2012-13 the Obama administration helped its Sunni allies Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar provide arms to Syrian and non-Syrian armed groups to force President Bashar al-Assad out of power. More Damning Evidence That the U.S. Is Directly Backing Al Qaeda-Linked Groups. Qatar’s former prime minister admitted in an interview that the United States and its Gulf allies supported Islamist extremists in Syria. In CIA-run training sites located in Jordan and Turkey, Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al-Thani explained, the U.S., Saudi Arabia and Qatar, “all of us, we [were] supporting the same groups,” he said. Among them were extremists, al-Thani noted. Forget Terrorism: The Real Reason Behind the Qatar Crisis Is Natural Gas.
(ZHE) — According to the official narrative, the reason for the latest Gulf crisis in which a coalition of Saudi-led states cut off diplomatic and economic ties with Qatar, is because – to everyone’s “stunned amazement” – Qatar was funding terrorists, and after Trump’s recent visit to Saudi Arabia in which he urged a crackdown on financial support of terrorism, and also following the FT’s report that Qatar has directly provided $1 billion in funding to Iran and al-Qaeda spinoffs, Saudi Arabia finally had had enough of its “rogue” neighbor, which in recent years had made ideologically unacceptable overtures toward both Shia Iran and Russia.
However, as often happens, the official narrative is traditionally a convenient smokescreen from the real underlying tensions. The real reason behind the diplomatic fallout may be far simpler, and once again has to do with a long-running and controversial topic, namely Qatar’s regional natural gas dominance. Is There Really More Oil in The Golan Heights than in Saudi Arabia? Who’s Genie Energy? QUESTION: Mr. Govt & Media Doing Exact Same Thing It Did To Start Iraq War, And Americans are Buying It.
