It’s understandable to hide certain information from the public by a president of the country and his administration team, it is also understandable that such information could be kept out of reach of politicians and even those elected to represent the nation in Congress or House, of course it’s understandable only when the national security of the nation is endangered.
What is not understandable is a president of a nation hiding information from his own citizens and their elected representatives when that information includes plotting against another country far away and never has caused or threatened danger against the nation, especially when the plot would consider huge amounts of spending, possible losses of lives and a great political price.
What is much worse than all of this is a president of a nation tricking his people and their elected representatives and taking advantages of some special provisions in the law to actually do what his people and their elected representatives voted against or at least didn’t give their approval.
What am I talking about? It’s how the president of the United States of America has tricked his Congress and its designated committees and appointed an ambassador to Syria at times when the USA itself calls Syria a state member of the ‘axis of evil’ and ‘state sponsor of terror’, accusing the country of crimes the US knows very well who committed (like assassinating former PM of Lebanon Rafic Hariri by MOSSAD) and all the other terms because this small country overseas doesn’t accept US hegemony on it, which has created a wound in the pride of US politicians over the years, if they have any pride when dealing in politics.
In some details, Obama, the US president has bypassed objections from the US Congress Committee on Foreign Affairs and appointed the first US ambassador to Damascus in December 2010 during the Congress recession, an appointment that lasts only one year before requiring to confirm it, but one year is more than enough for an skilled person like Robert Stephen Ford in a task he’s very well experienced in, and of course that’s not as claimed by the administration that the re-engagement with Syria is part of the administration efforts to make broker a peace deal between israel and it’s Arab neighbours; it’s another job required from a guy who is not good at all in forging peace deals, rather his best experience is in inflicting strife. Read this to know more about this person: Who is Robert Ford?
Mr. Ford didn’t waste time, the plot dubbed the ‘Arab Spring’ has already started in Tunisia and then in Egypt and he has to race time to ignite it in Syria. Why do I call the Arab Spring a plot? If you know Arabic or Turkish you’d better see a previous post of mine I highlighted a documentary of a Turkish journalist about the Arab Spring, it’s called: The Arab Spring and the Syrian Winter, but before you click the link I must warn you: this might change your entire perception of what’s happening in the real world and how media loves to deceive you.
As I said, Mr. Ford didn’t waste any time, meetings with known Syrian opposition figures in Damascus and other cities took place, sometimes at the US embassy and many times the enthusiastic ‘diplomat’ would jump from one remote village to another just to ‘meet’ a potential ally, and in many times a sleeper agent. He didn’t leave a single undiplomatic, against all respective international conventions, wrong gestures he didn’t hand over the Syrian government. His rudeness took him to Jisr Al Shoghour among a Syrian government organized trip to witness the atrocities of his own agents after a massacre of 120 Syrian uniformed security personnel were slaughtered in cold blood by terrorists crossing from Turkey to the border town. He didn’t report the truth about what he saw, which was also seen by over 70 other delegates, his administration instead said that his visit was to prevent the Syrian authorities from covering up their own atrocities in the city! The Syrian government would organize a trip for tens of journalists and diplomats to witness its own atrocities?! Well, that’s US politics and it does work very often with their masses.
Another visit took this faceless person to Hama, 209 Kms north of Damascus (130 miles), when the city was controlled by armed groups and the Syrian government forces were never in there.. Any other diplomat would fear for his safety from a stray bullet at least, but would a commander fear his own troops?
The Foreign Affairs ministry in Syria had to remind the ambassador with conventions that restricts diplomats of foreign countries from interfering in local matters in hosting countries and warned to restrict his radius of free movement to 25KMs like how the US restricts the movement of the Iranian ambassador to Washington, but he never obeyed, because simply his task is not materliazing in mass movements against the government, so started coordinating with NSA agents running social networks supporting the ‘Arab Spring’ in Syria and selecting flashpoints for protests to start and if that’s not surprising to you enough, he’d go to the designated location and starts asking the people to riot! But to his bad luck the gathering was mostly of patriotic Syrians and they hurled him away from the scene while wrapping him in the Syrian flag and a huge photo of president Bashar Al Assad, Syrian citizens who don’t fall for the plot dubbed ‘Arab Spring’ are referred to in NATO aligned media as Assad Loyalists: US Ambassador Robert Ford Attacked in Syria & Assad loyalists harass US Ambassador Ford in Damascus – note the terms used describing Syrians who refuse foreign intervention in their internal business and peacefully reacts.
The restraint of 25 Kms was actually imposed on the ‘Ambassador’ but how can he respect it if his task is not completed? On 23 August, 2011 he travels 70 Kilometres to the south of Damascus to visit an opposition figure who was involved in attacks against government buildings and has been released by a presidential public pardon. The ambassador informed the Syrian Foreign Affairs ministry about his visit after he came back to the embassy in Damascus with a more lame justification: He travelled without permission because the Syrian government was not giving him permission! Read this interesting once in a blue moon article by Foreign Policy discussing this incident: Is Robert Ford trying to get thrown out of Syria?
What amazes me when looking at such acts is how the US administration and its politicians consider themselves above any law or practice and how they look down at other countries. But this person’s acts and how the Syrian government reacted proved that while US politicians think they’re smart, someone plays with smartness. The Syrian government knew all the time about the past and skills of this person and how he created chaos wherever he was appointed in Bahrain, Basra in Iraq and then later in the whole of Iraq, previously in Algeria, and all, it did allow him to go, but in a country like Syria each of these acts has helped the government identify the risk areas while playing diplomatically with the undiplomatic. When Ford invited one of the opposition figures in Syria, Mr. Nawaf Al Bashir to his embassy and handed him a bag of money to be distributed among Mr. Bashir’s followers in Der Ezzor, the latter was arrested red-handed with the cash and his huge tribe Al Bakkara in Der Ezzor couldn’t do much for him because he was caught in action, so they felt ashamed instead of feeling angry and didn’t call for his release; he was later released in another presidential pardon.
When Ford visited Hama, as I mentioned earlier, he met some of the armed insurgents leading the riots in the city, delivered high-tech communication devices and cash. Just after he left the city, the Syrian authorities were able to identify who are the culprits and who are forcing people to riot in the streets in the city at gun point and who are those in charge of attacking government buildings and police stations, thanks to Ford’s visit, the authorities arrested those few involved and suddenly the entire city restored calm!
Some patriotic Syrians started stalking Ford voluntarily, and wherever his convoy goes (him, aides and guards) they’d follow, and wherever he stops to start a riot, they’d gather around him and give him a taste of democracy mixed with eggs and tomatoes. By the way, his French counterpart was doing exactly the same but at a much lesser level and was welcomed by Syrians with the same eggs and tomatoes treat.
As you noticed, or maybe you didn’t because you watch FoxNews and other NATO media and you became ‘Jazeeratized‘, Obama was never interested in making peace between israel and its Arab neighbours as he and his administration were stating, he was actually fooling his own people and his country’s own Congress for a totally different reason: Help the Arabs in reshaping their countries and their own leadership in part of the Creative Chaos in the MENA region to replace governments there with puppet regimes that would serve Obama’s dream in pleasing his masters who appointed this miracle president, he’s the rare 3 in 1 president that is difficult to repeat: He’s a Muslim born to a Muslim Father, prays at a Church and serves the Zionist Jews.
The Arab Spring is not a Spring and definitely not an Arab as you might have realized by now, and Obama’s will to forge peace in this region is definitely not a will for peace rather a will for further hegemony and dominance. Thank God their plot failed in Syria, and the US dreams of invading and slaughtering further countries in the name of ‘Democracy’ is collapsing and now on the retreat. The important question to ask: Is this the only Obama fooling the nation incident?
