Brookings` "Middle East Memo #21" quoted almost verbatim as US begins `plan B` for regime change in Syria.

by Tony Cartalucci

July 24, 2012 - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today regarding the ongoing violence in Syria:

"We have to work closely with the opposition, because more and more territory is being taken and it will eventually result in a safe haven inside Syria that will then provide a base for further actions by the opposition."
-Reuters, July 24, 2012 

Fortune 500-funded Brookings Institution's Assessing Options for Regime Change" (.pdf) report (emphasis added):

"An alternative is for diplomatic efforts to focus first on how to end the violence and how to gain humanitarian access, as is being done under Annanís leadership. This may lead to the creation of safe-havens and humanitarian corridors, which would have to be backed by limited military power. This would, of course, fall short of U.S. goals for Syria and could preserve Asad in power. From that starting point, however, it is possible that a broad coalition with the appropriate international mandate could add further coercive action to its efforts."
-page 4, Assessing Options for Regime Change (.pdf), Brookings Institution, March 2012.

Quite clearly the Syrian government is not teetering as the West has claimed. What's also clear is, US foreign policy is not created or shaped by the American people, nor their elected representatives. But aside from the United States' belligerent and floundering foreign policy being dictated by unelected policy wonks, funded by the corporate-financier interests of Wall Street and London, Clinton's parroting of Brookings' report indicates that Syria's current crisis is about to be compounded, not resolved, and as a direct result of further Western meddling.

The script Secretary Clinton is reading from, "Assessing Options for Regime Change" published in March 2012, also made mention of supplying weapons to militants fighting the Syrian government to "bleed" the nation, perpetually keeping a "regional adversary" weak:

"The United States might still arm the opposition even knowing they will probably never  have  sufficient power, on their own, to dislodge the Asad network. Washington might choose to do so simply in the belief that at least providing an oppressed people with some ability to resist their oppressors is better than doing nothing at all, even if the support provided has little chance of turning defeat into victory. Alternatively, the United States might calculate that it is still worthwhile to pin down the Asad regime and bleed it, keeping a regional adversary weak, while avoiding the costs of direct intervention." 
-pages 8-9, Assessing Options for Regime Change, Brookings Institution.

This callous malevolent conspiracy, runs contra to all the rhetoric the United States has thus far used to justify its involvement in Syria, which in reality stretches back at least as early as 2007, and indicates what will happen in case Madam Secretary is unable to carve out, and dust off a seat for her US State Department-run "Syrian National Council" to rule from atop.

Readers are encouraged to read the entire Brookings report (.pdf) so as to better understand events unfolding in Syria and how they are driven not by "democracy promotion," but by long-planned regime-change being executed by and for the corporate-financier interests of the Fortune 500. Readers are also encouraged to identify, expose, boycott, and replace the corporate-financier interests using the people of the West to subjugate the people of the East, for their own interests and aspirations toward global hegemony.
