PRESS RELEASE


London Directs Terrorist Acts in Syria
through Jordan and Turkey

Dec. 25, 2011 (EIRNS)—In an article published by Global Research, Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya, a Canada-based sociologist, says the encirclement of Syria and Lebanon has long been in the works. In 2001, Washington and NATO started the process of cordoning off Lebanon and Syria. The permanent NATO presence in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Syrian Accountability Act are part of this initiative. It appears that this roadmap is based on a 1996 Israeli document aimed at controlling Syria. The document's name is "A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm." EIR of course pointed this out many years ago.

What Nazemroaya indicates, but without seeing the obvious link, is that on November 23, 2011, the Turks signed a military agreement with Britain to establish a strategic partnership with the British and closer Anglo-Turkish military ties. During a state visit by Turkish President Abdullah Gül to London, that agreement was signed by Defense Secretary Phillip Hammond and the Deputy Chief of the Turkish General Staff, Hulusi Akar. The Anglo-Turkish agreement comes into play within the framework of the meetings that the British Chief of Defence Staff, General David Richards, and Liam Fox, the former scandal-ridden British Defence Minister, had with Israeli officials in Tel Aviv.

Nazemroaya also says Al-Ramtha in Jordan is being used to launch attacks into Daraa and Syrian territory. The Jordanian Minister of State for Media Affairs and Communications, Rakan Al-Majali, has even publicly admitted this, while dismissing it as merely weapons smuggling. It is to be noted that Al-Ramtha in Jordan is close to the ancient Syrian town of Daraa, where the most violent acts have taken place.

Sibel Edmonds had a similar report involving the Jordanian town of al-Mafraq in her www.boilingfrogspost.com blog.

Jordan has long been the British empire's catspaw. Now that Britain has put together a military agreement with Turkey, it is evident that London is in the driver's seat in the NATO-Saudi Arabia efforts to bring down al-Assad— but that only as an immediate jumping-off point for war with Russia and China.
