The West is doing its best to destabilize the situation in Syria, author and journalist Webster Tarpley told RT. According to him, civilians have to deal with death squads and blind terrorism, which is typical of the CIA. “What average Syrians of all ethnic groups say about this is that they are being shot at by snipers. People complained that there are terrorist snipers who are shooting at civilians, blind terrorism simply for the purpose of destabilizing the country. I would not call this civil war – it is a very misleading term. What you are dealing with here are death squads, you are dealing with terror commandos; this is a typical CIA method. In this case it’s a joint production of CIA, MI6, Mossad, it’s got money coming from Saudi Arabia, The United Arab Emirates and Qatar,” he explained.

I found this on RT.com
In the video the journalist says he has been in Syria to see for himself.
What do you make of this ?
IMO, he fails to answer one crucial question,which is what would the west have to gain from this ? That's what has me mostly doubting this guy's credibility.
Anyway, I'm not sure how reliable RT is, but I thought it's an interesting perspective to discuss.edit on 21-11-2011 by ModerateSkeptic because: (no reason given)
It has long been thought that the US has been inciting violence in Syria, here are a couple recent examples:

I started a thread on this yesterday but contained different material. I haven't heard the information from Tarpley yet so thanks for sharing.
Syrian emails say American psyche is 'easily manipulated'
Anonymous cyber group hacked messages believed to be giving advice to Bashar al-Assad ahead of an interview on ABC News
Bashar al-Assad was advised that the "American psyche can be easily manipulated" when he was preparing for a television interview with ABC's Barbara Walters in December, according to leaked emails reported to have come from within the Syrian regime.
Well they aren't protesters.They are terrorists(who are killing syrian people) who your propaganda media calls 'peaceful protesters' .
oops syrians prefer Assad over muslim brotherhood you love anytime. Anyways referendum for free elections is being held.
Some 55% of Syrian respondents do not believe President Assad should resign, whereas it was found that it was the vast majority of respondents across the region, 81%, who want him to do so.
I'm not crazy about the fact that the MB will eventually control the Parliament, but if they're pragmatic, they will focus on economic, rather than social, issues.
