Condi Returns: Calls for Violent Overthrow of Syria
June 27, 2012
The former Secretary of State who has an oil tanker named after her told the resident Trilateralist at CBS, Charlie Rose, that Mitt Romney would make a great president. She also called for arming the Syrian “opposition” already armed and trained by the CIA and Britain’s MI6.
“I do believe that you’re probably ultimately going to have to arm the opposition, maybe even today, because people are being armed,” said Rice. “Assad is being armed by the Russians and by the Iranians, so it’s not as if people are not being armed.”
Russia has denied arming the Syrian government and accused the U.S. of arming the Free Syrian Army and other groups sheltered over the border in Turkey.
On Tuesday, the Turkish Prime Minister warned that his country would attack Syria if it moved troops near the border and attempted to stop the CIA-MI6-Mossad backed rebels from entering its territory.
Rice was a featured speaker at the “First National Romney Victory Leadership Retreat” in Park City, Utah, over the weekend. “She spoke passionately about the need for the U.S. to return to its role as a world leader, a constant theme of the Romney campaign,” Todd Beamon wrote for Newsmax on Monday.
Rice is considered a Romney vice presidential choice, although she has stated she is not interested in the job.
Although not considered a neocon, Condi Rice played an instrumental role in the foreign policy decisions of the neocon-infested Bush administration.
As Bush’s National Security adviser, she was involved in formulating a passel of cynical lies about Saddam Hussein and weapons of mass destruction.
