The reasons why Syria is a target are several, I know of a few which are probably the main ones which I will list, there are probably many other
Powerful interests in Qatar wish to build a gas pipeline through Syria to Turkey and supply gas to Europe - they are the biggest exporter of gas, and
have the largest known gas field in the world. They hate the Assad regime for many reasons, political, religious and also want to fund a new Syrian
govt so they do not have to share profits. They have been funding rebels in Syria for years, supposedly to the tune of $3 billion US last year (I'm
too lazy to link sources, google for Qatar and Syrian gas pipeline and you'll probably find stuff).
Saudi is concerned about the rising power of Qatar, so they are also funding rebels - with a view that after the Assad regime is toppled, they can
force a power brokage agreement and gain political power in a new Syrian govt - or in the last case cause so much trouble that the Qatar backed rebels
are unable to assume control.
Syria does not have a western central bank. This is due to Islamic laws, and also just using their brains. Western central banks always bribe and
corrupt govts to take over a nation without war - its the usual method, which is why they like democracies - because they are the easiest to corrupt
in this fashion. So if Syria is taken out, they can install such a bank.
Taking Syria cuts off a tonne of Irans border - they will be able to enforce sanctions more easily, and apply more pressure to Iran - weakening it for
future attack, or causing it to capitulate. They also effectively then have Iran totally surrounded.
As I said, there's probably more reasons - but these are the ones Ive been able to discern with a fairly superficial search.
Russia is obviously interested because if this pipeline goes through, it will break Russia's current monopoly of being the supplier of gas to
Just to be clear, the sarin gas attack is a false flag by the 'rebels' The Rebels are not homogeneous, they are backed severally by the US govt
(CIA), Qatar and Saudi - if Assad falls the fighting will just escalate.
The US scum want to take over in Syria to install a central bank, run the pipeline because it weakens Russia and gets them good real estate to push
This is rich fkrs who are doing this, they dont care how many people they kill - they want to facilitate their own interests.
Regardless of what Assad has done, or is doing - far less people will die or be subject to tyranny by leaving Assad in power - the US govt will not
install some lovely democratic govt in Syria. For a start it simply wont be able to, and even if it could do so - it would not, it will install a
violent and ruthless dictator who will do their bidding.
