The United States has drafted a plan with its Arab allies to establish a no-fly zone over Syria.
Western diplomatic sources said the administration of President Barack Obama has reached agreement with Saudi Arabia and other Arab allies to impose measures meant to topple the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad. The Syrian military can be paralyzed in less than 24 hours,” a European source told the Kuwaiti daily Al Rai Al Aam on Nov. 22.
“The Syrian military can be paralyzed in less than 24 hours,” a European source told the Kuwaiti daily Al Rai Al Aam on Nov. 22.
A former official from within the ranks of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is reporting that US and NATO forces have landed outside of Syria and are training militants to overthrow the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, formerly a translator with the FBI, wrote over the weekend that American soldiers are among the NATO troops that have mysteriously and suddenly landed on the Jordanian and Syrian border. According to her, several sources internationally have confirmed the news, although the US media has been instructed to temporarily censor itself from reporting the news.
Russian news agencies have quoted defense officials as saying a Russian Navy squadron has set off for the Mediterranean. The officials said the squadron, including the heavy-aircraft-carrying cruiser "Admiral Kuznetsov," is to make a call at the Russian base in the Syrian port of Tartus.

Arab League denies it plans to impose no-fly zone in Syria (DPA)
Cairo - Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi on Wednesday denied media reports that the pan-Arab organization plans to impose a no-fly zone in Syria.
'I am surprised about such inaccurate reports at a time when efforts and contacts are still under way to remove the obstacles to allowing Arab monitors into Syria and ensure the success of providing an Arab solution (to the Syrian crisis),' he told reporters in Cairo.
Al-Arabi, however, expressed concerns over an increase in violence in Syria in the past few days.
It's a long way of answering your question, Peter. Six weeks after 9/11, I went down to the office of one of the joint staff generals, and he said, sir -- I said you told me a couple -- three weeks ago we're going to invade Iraq. And that didn't make any sense. Are we still invading Iraq? By this time, we were bombing in Afghanistan.
He said, "Oh, it's worse than that," he said. He held up a piece of paper. He said, "This is a memo that says, you know, all the countries on the target list; it's a five-year campaign plan, and it's Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Libya, Sudan and Somalia."

If you think the US are lying about an agreement with Saudi Arabia, do you not think that they would be on Al Jazeera denying these reports? The arab league have unaminiously said that Asad needs to be stopped, not everything is a conspiracy.
