West ‘fomenting a proxy war’ in Syria
That is according to Charlie McGrath, founder of the news
website wideawakenews.com. He told RT of the early signs seen and
the PR tactics used to manufacture that war. Moreover, with the
decision by the West to arm the Syrian rebels now on the horizon,
while the same rebels are still terrorizing Iraq and Afghanistan,
McGrath paints a very grim picture.
RT:It's been suggested Israel is targeting Hezbollah terrorists - why isn't it doing the same against Al-Qaeda extremists fighting in Syria?
Charlie McGrath: That’s an excellent question and I think
activist Jim Brown nailed a lot of those answers. It isn’t just Al
Qaeda, it’s Al Nousra Front, which is the driving force of the
so-called “freedom fighters” inside of Syria. Why aren’t they being
targeted? It’s pretty simple. This is a fomenting war with proxies.
We are going to go in and say we are going to attack Hezbollah or
weapons headed for Hezbollah and of course they are of an Iranian
origin. This region of the world is a powder keg and it seems the
West is looking for the right spark.
RT:Who's actually the main target behind these attacks - Syria, Iran or Hezbollah in Lebanon?
CM: I think they want to put all this fish in one kettle,
tie them together as a new axis of evil inside the Middle East and
North Africa and do away with them. I think they are all under
attack. Like I said, Syria has been hanging on, with a sectarian
government, under civil war for over two years. We are funding, the
West is funding… I don’t know if many Americans realize this, but
they definitely should. We are talking, we are getting daily
diatribe by Washington DC – these people that are allegedly trying
to convince us that we want to spread democracy in that region of
the world and give people a chance. Now we are talking about
directly arming the rebels. And we need to understand who these
rebels are. They are the same individuals we were shooting at in
Iraq, in Afghanistan. We were let to be believed, that these are
the terrorists who want to come over here and steal our rights. I
don’t think there’s any one specific target. I think it’s the
region, I think it’s the West along with Israel trying to foment a
RT:We can presume Israel hardly ever acts without permission from the US Do you think Washington was aware of these attacks?
CM: Absolutely, 100 per cent, I guarantee it! Look at the rhetoric that’s been built up over the last weeks. The rhetoric over the ‘red line’, the chemical weapon. You know – Dennis Kucinich – one honest American politician, I believe, said “If you want to know about what’s going on inside of Syria, just Google ‘Syria false flag chemical weapons more manufactured intelligence’…of course we knew what was going to happen over this weekend! We talk of ‘red lines’, Netanyahu being on the fore of the UN with his cartoon bomb meeting this ‘red line’ – the nuclear threat of Iran…absolutely, involvement was known on all parties that this attack was going to happen.
