A possible US intervention into Syria against the background of chaos and bloody turmoil reigning in the country for over two years could become a turning point in the contemporary world history. Everything that is taking place in the Middle East during the Obama’s tenure – be it Tunisia, Libya, Syria or Yemen – is a result of US direct meddling into internal affairs of these countries.
At present Obama simply cannot admit that Syria has stood tall against the West and the policy of siding with “Islamists” has failed. The Assad’s government holds the reigns gaining even more support from Syria people. That’s why the real goal of the planned intervention under the cynical slogan of protecting civilians is rendering support to rebels, who are in the process of suffering defeat. According to Obama’s plans, the mission is to destroy the military infrastructure and enable the rebels with rich experience of fighting unarmed civilians concentrate on regime change. There are no more than 5 percent of Syrian nationals among those who are fighting the government troops; others are mercenaries coming from other countries to fight for money in a foreign land. Some of them come from Russia and other republics of former Soviet Union.
The plight of Syrian Christians is especially hard. Terrorists burn temples, attack old men, women and children. Until now the anti-Christian activities of Washington-friendly Islamic radicals have not been contained. It should be noted that some time before the US Congress suspended military and financial support to «Syrian rebels». The main reason behind the decision was the oppression the Syrian Christians are subject to. The major part of Congressmen came to the conclusion the US had no moral right to render support to «liberators» involved in atrocities on foreign soil. Unlike the «President – peacemaker» Obama, they believed that such policy leaves the Syrian minorities without any guarantees, while the support of Islamists results in conscientious and purposeful elimination of Christians.
