The recent failure by the Obama administration to carry through on a military strike of Syria should not be interpreted as anything but a momentary
check to their plans to topple the Assad regime and replace it with one more compliant to Western corporate interests, before moving on to attempt to
do the same thing in Iran.
It is important to remember that eastern Syria has already fallen, in parts, to the al Nusra Front and to Syrian Kurds who profess loyalty to Assad's
regime but who have been forced to secure autonomous control of their own region of the country in order to protect themselves from "ethnic cleansing"
by anti-Assad jihadis.
I think what we will see in the western end of Syria is a return to what has been the most effective tactic pursued by the United States in its
campaign against Assad, and that is a return to attempts to bribe top Assad loyalists into defecting from the regime or, to assassinate them
Assassinating Assad himself must be at the top of the "to do" list for NATO's clandestine services and their allies among the cannibals.
With Assad gone, there could be serious disarray in the Baath party. In fact, since anything is possible, another strategy for the Americans would be
to bribe an ambitious Baath Party member to stay in position until someone can get to Assad. This person might even assist in facilitating Assad's
Another thing that we might see in the near future is an attempt by Israel to renew hostilities against Hezbollah in Lebanon in hopes of putting
enough pressure on them to withdraw forces from Syria. This might return the situation in Syria to one in which rebels were capable of taking out
Assad's forces or of fighting a prolonged bloody internal conflict that could eventually lead to the collapse of the regime from exhaustion.
An outbreak of Hezbollah aggression against Israel on the southern border of Lebanon would be easy to cook up and would make as much strategic
sense for Hezbollah as a gas attack on a neighborhood in Damascus would make for Assad, i.e., none at all.
These are the actions that NATO's champions of human values don't talk about when they discuss their options.
