THE REAL REASON ISRAEL ATTACKED SYRIA
by StormCloudsGathering | Published on May 6, 2013
On Friday, May 3, 2013, Israel launched an air strike on a Syrian convoy. Followed a second attack on Sunday, May 5th, which targeted a scientific studies and research center in Jamraya near the Syrian capital of Damascus. The total amount of deaths and injuries is still unclear at this point.
Israeli officials were silent in regards to the strikes until Syria issued a public statement to the United Nations, condemning them as an act of war and asserting their right to retaliate. This is the second time this year Israel as initiated unprovoked attacks against Syria.
So what's really going on here? Why on earth would Israel do something like this?
The first thing to be aware of is that these recent moves on Syria are indirects attacks on Iran. Syria and Iran are bound by a mutual defense treaty. And any large scale war that breaks out with either one, will most likely draw in the other.
Likewise, any moves made by Israel, can and will be interpreted as a move by the United States. Because if Israel gets involved in a conflict with Iran, the United States will join the fight. This is not just an assumption. On April 17, 2013 the U.S. Foreign Relations Committee voted to endorse Resolution 65, which affirmed that the United States will fully back Israel militarily and financially should it attack Iran. This is very serious considering that Israel has openly indicated its desire to use military force on Iran on numerous occasions.
Now this aggression by Israel comes right on the heels of accusations by the U.S. government that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons against its own population, and that this constituted a red line that may justify military intervention. Just days later the Obama administration mysteriously backed down from these claims. And the mainstream media went silent.
Now we know why, as it turns out, a UN investigation into the matter revealed that it was actually the NATO backed rebels which used the sarin gas in the conflict, not the Syrian government. This is more than an embarrassing mix up. There's evidence that this event was set up to frame the Syrian government and to create the pretext for U.S. military involvement.
In January of this year, leaked documents from a U.K. based defense contractor, revealed a proposal by Quatar to have the firm provide false evidence that Syria had given the go-ahead for the use of chemical weapons in the country. In the documents, they claim that the plan had full approval from Washington.
If this is in fact what happened, what's shocking here is that in their attempt to frame the Syrian government, NATO has actually facilitated the use of chemical weapons on a civilian population. This is a war crime by any measure.
Now of course after Syria went public about the air strikes, Israel was forced to put forth an official justification. And they are now claiming that these attacks targeted shipments of missiles headed for Hezbollah in Lebanon. However, some analysts believe that the real motive was to derail Syria's progress in their fight against foreign militants that have been entering the country from Lebanon. Hezbollah, which is the most powerful military force in Lebanon, has sided with President Assad's government, in what they say is a war against foreign backed terrorists. And on May 1st they indicated they may directly intervene into the conflict.
Russia has also taken the side of the Syrian government, repeatedly calling for an end to external interference, and warning that U.S. plans to increase material support to the rebels may have serious consequences. Among these consequences, Russia has indicated the risk of thermonuclear war. China has issued similar warnings.
As in most of the major events that we're seeing unfolding right now, the real motives have nothing to do with the official justifications given by the government or the mainstream media. This has nothing to do with protecting the Syrian people. This much should be clear by the simple fact that NATO has backed these insurgents despite numerous atrocities. And is covering for them now even when they use chemical weapons. Nor is this about Iran attempting to build a nuke. Both the Mossad and the CIA have stated that Iran has yet to even decide to make a nuclear weapon, much less start.
What this really comes down to is that Iran is sitting on the world's third largest oil reserves and its not cooperating with the U.S. and NATO agenda in that region.
These attacks all have one goal in mind; to topple Syria and to draw Iran into an open confrontation. Which would then give the U.S. and NATO the pretext for an outright invasion. Handing them a stake, that what they want.

Now, how this crisis will play out is impossible to predict. Human decisions are what will determine how far this escalates. As of yet, Iran and Syria have exercised considerable restraint in the face of these attacks, although its uncertain how long they can afford to do so.
If this aggression continues, there will be a breaking point. The reality is the powers that be are intent on taking down Iran and Syria and they're willing to go to any lengths to make this happen.
However, they can do that has long as they have full control of the U.S. military personnel and this is their Achilles heel. If you want to affect the outcome of this situation. This is where you need to strike. As an American, you have access to U.S. military personnel. You can write letters to soldiers. You can send them videos. You can post in military forums. And if you live in a town with a military base, you post posters and hand out flyers. If all this seems like too much for you, then simply working to spread the message via Facebook and Twitter is a good start.
All this may seem like a long-shot, but if even one high-level officer speaks out against the plans to go to war with Iran, it could have a ripple affect that prevents this from moving forward. It may be that you don't know anyone in the military directly, however if you make a concerted effort to reach out to as many people as possible, you increase the chances that this information will reach someone who does know someone.
Regardless of our chances, we have to try. A lot of innocent people are going to die if we fail. Sitting back and doing nothing is morally unacceptable."
