Syria: U.S. Ambassador Robert Ford and the Salvador option

Death squads operate a la El Salvador in Syria. The economics professor Michel Chossudovsky comes to this conclusion in an article for the alternative portal “Global Research”. Michel Chossudovsky is reminiscent of the “Salvador option”, which was implemented by the former U.S. ambassador to Baghdad, John Negroponte, in the years 2004/2005 in Iraq.

The “Salvador option”, this means, this model, which was developed in the United States, was responsible in the 1980s in Central America, El Salvador, that about 75,000 people have lost their lives. In Nicaragua, about 50000 people were the victims of these death squads.

The task of these murder gangs was to break the resistance against the military dictatorships in Central America, which have cooperated well with Washington. John Negroponte was ambassador from 1981 to 1985 in Honduras, where he was responsible for special operations, as it was stated in the article by Chossudovsky. In 2004, Negroponte arrived in Baghdad and also had the “Iraqi Salvador option” in his luggage.


At the side of Negroponte, in the so-called “Green Zone”, Robert Stephen Ford became the number two of the U.S. embassy. The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad has actively supported from now the Iraqi paramilitary forces on the model of the “Salvador option” and based on the former experiences with the death squads in Central America.

The “Iraqi death squads” were fighting against the Iraqi resistance against the occupation by the United States and, in addition, the Iraqi death squads also fueled the sectarian conflict, which was useful for the interests of the United States.

The American “death squads” in Iraq can also be responsible for the attack on the Golden Dome of the Al-Askeri Mosque in Samara in the year 2006, which was a totally professional attack – the Golden Dome was blown totally professional and it was never a surprise that a lot of people thought that the CIA might also be behind it or, at least, has trained the responsible people behinds this attack.

Afterwards, the sectarian conflict begun and this sectarian “war” last till today. The conflict between Shiites and Sunnis became quickly a so-called proxy war between the Shiite Muslim theocracy Iran and the wahabbi-salafist Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

At the end of January 2011, Robert Ford became the U.S. Ambassador to Syria and the rest is almost “history repeating”. According to Chossudovsky, the engagement of “death squads” from Iraq for Syria was already prepared at this time, but at this time the “death squads” were still on hold.

The riots in Syria, which have begun in March 2011, were almost immediately undermined at the beginning by the Iraqi death squads, which had sadly no real problem to enter Syrian soil. Attacks, kidnappings and assassinations bear the mark of such death squads since March 2011.

The massacre of children and their parents and relatives in Hula (Houla / May 25) may have been committed by these death squads, too. The UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon speaks about a “third side” which he makes responsible for the bloody crimes and he also talks about al-Qaeda, like the Syrian government does.

Presumably, the “al-Qaeda in Iraq”, which is now in Syria, is only a new package for the old model of El Salvador. American foreign policy of death.
