NATO Special Forces in Syria now Official

Christof Lehmann (nsnbc) ,- SAS and other NATO Special Forces Reported in Syria. The Daily Star is reporting that SAS Special Operations Forces as well as agents of the United Kingdom´s Foreign Intelligence Service MI6 are operating in Syria. That makes it official, what nsnbc and other not state or corporate sponsored media have reported for months. The Daily Star also reports that other countries, including Turkey, France, and “possibly” the USA are operating in Syria.

A whistle-blower and high-ranking officer of the U.S. Special Operations Forces stationed at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, disclosed already in late August 2011 that the USA had deployed Special Forces along with other NATO-Member States special forces in Syria.(1) The high-ranking officer had become disillusioned about the USA and the US and NATO´s increasingly aggressive expansionism, stating that Special Forces increasingly were deployed to support terrorist organizations and terrorists who are officially on the U.S. list of terrorist organizations and the list of wanted terrorists.

The officer stated already in August 2011 that the USA was actively preparing for at war on Syria, Lebanon and Iran, that US-Special Forces were on the ground in Syria, supervising and cooperating with among other armed fighters of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Al-Qaeda associated Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, and a cohort of other terrorist organizations.The officer further stated, that the training of foreign fighters, and the entire “operation” is planned and executed along the guidelines of a Special Forces Training Circular for Foreign Fighters and agents, called TC 18-01. The confidential Training Circular has been published in it´s entirety in a previous article on nsnbc. (2) When comparing the evolution of the crisis in Syria with the training manual in unconventional warfare it becomes evident that the development in Syria is cynically planned and executed by foreign powers.(ibid.)

Western Main Stream Media has for more than one year neglected numerous witnesses, experts and analysts reports about the presence of Special Forces in Syria. The fact that reports about Special Forces are being published now is most likely a function of the wider publics manipulation towards accepting, or even demanding a larger military intervention under the pretext of humanitarian principles.

Thus the Daily Star reports, in the following order, that Special Forces are in the country to:

  • help protect refugees in Syria along the borders.
  • help armed groups in Syria.
  • use high-tech satellite computers and radios that can instantly send back photos and details of refugees and Syrian army as the situation develops.

According to The Daily Star a senior Whitehall source stated that “There are guys in the communication unit who are signalers that can go right up front and get involved in close-quarter fighting.” The same source is reported to have said that “safe havens” are expected to be set up around areas that are easily accessible and even within walking distance of trouble spots.

Among the trouble spots are mentioned  Krak des Chevaliers, some 25 miles west of Homs, close to the border to Lebanon,  As Suwayda, near the border with Jordan and Jisr al-Shughour near the Turkish border.

The “trouble spots” mentioned by the senior Whitehall source are not surprisingly in the same areas that both the author of this article and other analysts identified as corridors for infiltration of insurgents, arms and logistics from Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey, already months ago.  Not that more clear evidence as the fact that NATO Special Forces operate in Syria is needed to establish that the crisis in Syria is fermented by foreign powers and that it is not endemic to Syria and Syrians, but the fact that the corridors that were long ago identified by analysts as corridors for foreign mercenaries and special forces are now declared to be “trouble spots” should dot all I´s and cross all T´s for anyone who has doubts about that Syria is the victim of an illegal aggression that is planned, fermented and executed by and under control of NATO.

What is extremely important in the article of the Daily Star is that it is desensitizing the reader to NATO forces operating inside Syria illegally, which is a crime that falls under the Nuremberg Principles, while the article in spite of evidence to the contrary maintains that the massacre in Al-Houla, was committed by the Syrian Military. (3) While the evidence points to a cynical, cold blooded attack on families that were against the insurgency or supportive of the Syrian government; while many were shot at close range, execution style, and most importantly, while the massacre could very well be a typical NATO false flag operation to provoke sentiments for a military intervention, the Daily Star is selling the war crimes, the gross violation of Syrian territory, and the undeclared war under the guise of the SAS establishing safe camps in Syria. If NATO Special Forces in deed establish safe camps for civilians, it would be for PR purposes to cover over the “safe terrorist camps it establishes for NATO mercenaries”

The fact that the Western public is being desensitized with respect to “their boys” being deployed to Syria is one more indication for that a major military intervention can be expected in the nearest future, and latest by late August or the beginning of September this year. The Arab League´s attempt yesterday, to make Nilesat and Arabsat cease to carry Syrian media signals over their satellites is one more indication of an imminent war and heightened propaganda efforts.(4) Absolute image control is an integrated part of modern NATO warfare doctrine.

Special Forces are most likely not only involved in support, logistics and combat operations as well as terror against the Syrian government and Syrian civilians. One of the important functions of Special Forces in Syria will be the preparation of airborne attacks, preparations for targeting air defenses, air-force installations, communications, missile systems.

The fact that the Syrian State, Government, Security Forces as well as the People of Syria have resisted the cynical, criminal, onslaught for over one year makes it extremely unlikely that NATO can destabilize the country sufficiently to bring about the wanted regime change without an overt military intervention and the use of Air Force and Cruise Missiles.

A regime change in Syria would have no other function than to destabilize Syria so much that it will fall apart and degenerate into a protracted civil war, Lebanese Civil War Style for the coming decade. The ultimate purpose of the entire campaign is to destabilize Syria and Lebanon so much, that an attack on Iran becomes feasible in the eyes of NATO Strategists. The recent activation of NATO´s anti missile shield is most likely established with the expectation that it would prevent Russia from intervening without having to consider the risk of being targeted by a nuclear first strike by NATO.

After failing to cast Syria into a protracted civil war for one year the only option for NATO that remains, however, seems to be an overt military attack on Syria. An attack that would most likely have more than regional consequences; regardless how threatening the NATO first strike capability against Russia may seem to be.
