On February 15, 2016, former British ambassador to Syria and Bahrain, Peter Ford blamed David Cameron’s ME policy for prolonging five-year Syrians’ agony by joining the US-led coalition to bring an anti-Iran regime change in Damascus.
“Assad is not going to be overthrown. This becomes more clear with every day passes. Western analysts have been indulging in wishful thinking for five years; it’s time to get real, we owe it to Syrian people to be much more realistic and hard headed about this. The West has to stop propping the so-called moderate opposition, which is not moderate at all by the way, and it has to allow Syrian Army backed possibly by the Russian to deal with ISIS,” Ford said at BBC’s The Big Questions, hosted by Nicky Campbell, an Islamophobe.

The US-Israel-Saudi Arabia supported anti-government rebels have been losing territory rapidly under an intensified campaign by Assad’s troops backed by Hizbullah fighters, Iranian military advisers and Russian air strikes in recent weeks, allowing Kurdish forces to seize more territory.
“Western intervention is just prolonging the agony. We should have backed off, we should not have tried to overthrow the regime. Despite the failures of this in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, like a dog returning to its vomit we go back,” said Ford.
Peter Ford also accused the Foreign Secretary Dr. Philip Hammond, an Israel-Firster, of undermining a ceasefire agreed in Munich last week.
It’s no secret that ISIS like the so-called Arab Spring is a US-Israel creation. Its Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (born Elliot Shimon) is French Jew and was trained by Israeli Mossad (here).
It’s not the first time the US and UK have tried to stage a pro-West regime change in Syria. Professor Douglas Little (Clark University) notes that CIA backed a pro-West coup in Syria in 1949 after Western creation of Zionist entity in 1948.
In 1957, pro-Israel Gen. Eisenhower and Howard Macmillan planned invasion of Syria.
In 1982, Oded Yinon, a prominent Israeli journalist formerly attached to the Israeli Foreign Ministry authored a book, Zionist Plan for Middle East, expressly calling for the break up of Syria. “All the Arab states should be broken down, by Israel, into small units,” Yinon said.
