US Ambassador In Veiled Terror Threat to Syria's Assad
US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice reacted to yesterday's deadly bombings in Damascus by issuing a chilling and thinly veiled threat that NATO-backed terrorists would carry out more attacks unless President Bashar al-Assad stepped down.
Following the attacks, which targeted the Military Intelligence Centre and killed mostly Syrian security force members, Rice seized upon the carnage to proclaim, "The longer Assad clings to power, the greater the risk of destabilization in Syria and throughout the region."
Although Rice's words were subtle in tone, the message she sent to Assad was clear - relinquish power or the terror attacks will continue.
Instead of condemning the bombings, Rice actually hinted that more would take place until the NATO powers had achieved their political agenda of regime change.
In a subsequent tweet she added, "Bombings also remind us of the urgent need for a political solution in Syria before it is too late."
And just what is that "political solution"? According to Rice herself in a statement made hours before the attacks, the solution is "Increasing the pressure on the Assad regime and on Assad himself to step down."
So effectively, Rice all but lauded the bombings as a tool to dispense with the UN cease fire and accelerate the "political solution" for NATO - the mission to topple Assad.
Rice's complete failure to condemn the horrific attacks and her subtle gesture of actually using them to threaten more attacks on the Syrian government is abhorrent. Far from behaving likes a stateswoman, Rice's rhetoric has more in common with Osama Bin Laden.
In a related story, U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has admitted that Al-Qaeda terrorists are present inside Syria, but ludicrously denied knowledge of their activities. These are the same Al-Qaeda terrorists who Hillary Clinton admits are on the same side as the United States in Syria.
"Frankly, we don't have very good intelligence as to just exactly what their activities are," he told a joint press conference with Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, at the Pentagon on Thursday."
Really Mr. Panetta? You only have to look at the 59 dead and 372 wounded in yesterday's deadly twin car bombing, the worst attack yet, to know "exactly what their activities are."
The terrorists now carrying out the destabilization campaign in Syria were airlifted in from Libya by NATO after they had helped NATO powers overthrow Gaddafi and impose a "reign of terror" that has seen black Libyans incarcerated and tortured in detention camps. These same terrorists, dubbed 'freedom fighters' by the establishment media, are now carrying out kidnappings, executions and torture against Syrians deemed loyal to President Bashar Al-Assad, according to Human Rights Watch.
As a source told the London Telegraph back in November, “There is something being planned to send weapons and even Libyan fighters to Syria....There is a military intervention on the way."
And who were those Libyan fighters? Members of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), an Al-Qaeda offshoot, designated as a terrorist organization by the US State Department. Libyan rebel leader Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi admitted that LIFG fighters, directed by Abdulhakim Belhadj, were the second-largest cohort of foreign fighters in Iraq, responsible for killing U.S. troops.
Just as the Al-Qaeda flag now flies high over Libya, NATO-backed Syrian rebel fighters and their supporters also display the same motif - with Susan Rice, Leon Panetta and the rest of the NATO regime change crowd standing right behind them.
