On Thursday Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey speaking to journalist in London rejected French-Turkish call for enforcing a ‘no-fly-zone’ inside Syria by NATO. He warned the implications of establishing a no-fly-zone inside Syria, saying: “Syria is not Libya“.
Gen. Dempsey repeated his earlier statement he made in Israel that Israel’s unilateral attack on Iran would probably delay Tehran’s nuclear program, but Israel cannot defeat Iran without US active military help. He added: “I don’t want to be complicit if they choose to do it“.
Gen. Dempsey reinforced Washington’s opposition to unilateral Israel military action as he made clear that US military chiefs were equally wary of getting ensnared in Syria, reported UK Guardian on August 30, 2012.
Both Russia and China have long made it clear that they are not going to repeat the mistake they made in case of Libya last year, when the US and its European Zionist allies misused a UNSC resolution to protect civilians and launched months of NATO carpet-bombing which resulted in the killing of over 30,000 Libyan men, women and children – and horrible murder of Libyan leader Moammar Qaddafi.
Nicola Nasser wrote in Al-Ahram weekly (August 30-September 5): “Regional and international involvement in the Syrian crisis has nothing to do with the internal crisis per se, but it has exploited the internal crisis because it has a lot to do with US-Israeli plans to isolate and contain what both countries perceive as being the Iranian regional threat to their interests. To this end, Israel and the US are now doing all they can to break the alliance between Iran and Syria and the Syrian bridge linking Iran to Lebanese and Palestinian movements resisting Israeli military occupation, thus cutting Iran off from the Mediterranean and depriving these movements of Syrian support, by coordinating “regime change” in Damascus.”
On August 21, Gen. Dempsey survived a failed assassination attempt at the US military base at Bagram in Afghanistan by CIA-Mossad-RAW trained phony Al-Qaeda. This was a warning to the General for not taking orders from Netanyahu on attack on the Islamic Republic.
