The top U.S. military commander in Europe said Tuesday that NATO is conducting contingency planning for possible military involvement in Syria and American forces would be prepared if called upon by the United Nations and member countries.



The commander said discussions within the NATO member countries have focused on imposing a no-fly zone, providing lethal support to the Syrian opposition forces and imposing arms embargoes.

Armed Services Chairman Carl Levin, D-Mich., asked whether there is any consideration of targeting Syria's air defenses. Stavridis simply said yes.

Syrian-American From Dallas Named Opposition Premier

A Syrian exile coalition elected a Syrian-American from Texas early Tuesday to be the first prime minister of an interim government, charged with sending aid to rebels and offering an alternative to the rule of President Bashar al-Assad.


The rest

Well it appears US/Nato involvement is inevitable. I imagine it will be on the top list of topics in Israel in the next couple of days. Ugh. They shall have their regime change. They will have to go to the UN and hopefully the security counsel offers up a couple of vetoes again. Although we went into Iraq without going to the security counsel, perhaps they already have their path.

the red line was chemical weapons.

we had confirmation over the last couple of days that Iraq war was started and based on LIES.

immediately we are told chemical weapons are being used in syria

red line was crossed. invasion begins.

need to distract people from truth about iraq. easiest way is to start the next war.

War as distraction? Sure, that's a standard card in the deck. But from the latest confirmations of Iraq shennanagins? Hardly.

So, if the UN wants to call NATO (US basically) up for deployment..

Does your US Congress still have to approve?

Sorry for my ignorance.

arms industry are very anxious to get another war going after the money that has been made over last decade.

plans were already there to go into Syria. certain forces were told last year they would be on the ground in Syria in 2013.

so now they need to move quickly before too much of a fuss is generated over the latest iraq revelations. an attack launched on syria will occupy all of the 24 hour news channels.

as soon as Syria attack begins , Iraq will be completely forgotten.

the purpose of the war is not distraction , its about making money. the distraction it creates is simply a beneficial side effect.

Well, American troop were put in Jordon on the borders of Syria without congressional approval. There are also some rogue legal theories that the Administration subscribes to that state the Executive doesn't need congressional approval.


During the lawless UN-approved war that destroyed Libya, which bears striking parallels to the current tragedy unfolding in Syria, the Obama administration told Congress that it would wage its war no matter what lawmakers thought about it. The Constitution, also disregarded, gives the war-making power to Congress, requiring a formal declaration of war before the president can invade foreign countries or overthrow governments.

Whether President Obama would overtly intervene militarily in the conflict remains to be seen — so far he has indicated publicly that his administration prefers to support rebel forces from a distance. However, as has been the case on numerous occasions throughout U.S. history, one minor incident could change all of that in an instant.

This is what sounds alarms to me. American backed "leaders" don't have the best record. Even after all this stuggle and fighting, these people will be back to square 1, with possibly, another brute of a dictator.

This is f/ing ridiculous if correct. Syria will most definetly launch chemical weapons if any outside country meddles in their internal affairs. If people think the scenario is bad now, wait until the West strike.. There is only one way with this scenario and its all out war. Russia and China will not agree to this and I cannot see how a conflict with either can be prevented.. Its suicide for all parties involved.

I wonder if Syria also has a "Samson Option" ?

Wait till NATO send troops in, allow them to masse closer to the capital, then "unleash literal Hell" by gassing the entire country with whatever stockpiles he has left.

If your country is going to loose, as Israel has said in the past, you'd take out whoever you could with it.

Can you imagine the tradgedy?

How do you respond to a country that has committed suicide and taken 50,000 NATO troops with it?

Its never been done before.

I dont imagine well put the troops in harms way untill the country is bombed back to the stone age.
The air defences, the cities, the infrastructure....schools, hospitals, bridges,and of course the Syrians....
Chemical weapons require a certain amount of preparation....and the organised resistance will be in tatters by then.....

Here we go
yet another party is about to start and the usual opposing countries are hovering around pretending to be friends of cyprus and syria both.

The Cypriot talks with the Russians broke down, so for Cyprus it is back to square one.
