Our National Interests and Syria

Bashar al-Assad in vise toon

John R. Houk

© June 3, 2013


The blogger Danny Jeffrey has often been critical of the U.N. and Obama international principle of Responsibility to Protect (R2P). The public presentation of R2P is that the international community has a responsibility to protect civilians of a nation placed in a life threatening dangerous position from either its government or perhaps internal terrorism the local government cannot cope with or both. AND that sounds altruistic enough, don’t you think?


Jeffrey’s criticism is simple. R2P is a tool of Leftist Globalists and the U.N. to have an excuse to further the agenda of a global New World Order under some kind of dual Leftist-Islamic design. Danny Jeffrey off the top of my head seems to emphasize the Caliphate agenda of Radical Islam.


I say “off the top of my head” because it seems that Danny’s essays that I have read tend to be suspicious of Islam’s goal to destroy Israel and the Leftist tend to agree with that agenda. I personally think global Leftists and the Caliphate agenda Muslims are taking advantage of each other with the intention of screwing each other over. My reasoning for this thinking is that Leftists are not fond of religious influence in general and Islam is not fond of any other religions or ideologies that are secularist at best and atheistic at worst. As far as Islam is concerned that would run the Leftist gamut of Secular Humanist Socialists to atheistic Marxists.


Thus in my line of thinking the Leftist-Radical Islam unity is more like an “enemy of my enemy is my friend” agenda until that enemy is eliminated. If that situation occurs you can imagine the global bloodlust that would follow a global Leftist vs. global Muslim Caliphate war. It would be like medieval days when the winners destroyed en masse the losers. Protocols of modern Western Civilization would be totally thrown out the door while such a war would be a series of battles in which each battle victory by either side would be an ethnic cleansing moment until the victors would be the only ones standing after ethnic cleansing annihilation.


A global Leftist-Caliphate war would be an End Times apocalypse in nature.


In this sense I agree with Danny that R2P is a nefarious thing that the long term affects will be of no good for people (Mostly Americans) who love Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. The long term affects of R2P will strengthen the ulterior motives of global Leftists and global Caliphate Muslims to the horrible misfortune of Christians and Bill of Rights minded Americans. Both Christians and Bill of Rights minded Americans are the target of destruction by global Leftists and global Caliphate Muslims.


However when it comes to Syria, I believe dumping Bashar al-Assad will throw a monkey wrench in the Caliphate agenda because it will highlight the mutual hatred that Sunnis and Shias have for each other. Sunnis represent roughly 90% of Islam and Shias represent roughly 10% Islam.


The largest Shia nation is Iran of which that nation’s Mullocracy are mostly Twelver Shias. They are called Twelvers because they believe a Twelfth or Hidden Imam will reveal himself and force Islam upon the whole Earth. That Twelfth Imam is a direct descendant of the Prophet Mohammed. Therein lay the hatred between Sunnis and Shias.


The Sunnis beat back the Shias in a war in which the last Mohammed relative that was a Caliph – Ali - had his Caliphate terminated by assassination. The Shias believed only a person of a Mohammed ancestry line could guide Muslims as Caliph. Allegedly the last living relative of Mohammed (the twelfth in lineage that is) disappeared. I am uncertain what the Sunnis believe about this guy – perhaps Sunnis believe he was killed or perhaps never existed; thus ending any claim to a hereditary Caliphate. I am certain that the Shias believe this twelfth Imam and descendant of Mohammed via Ali went into some sort of occultation to be hidden until the time was right for revealing himself to secure the Earth for Islam.


Okay that is a brief summary of the Sunni-Shia divide that is roughly correct but I am sure is filled with anomalies from the Sunni or Shia perspective.


The thing is Iran – a Shia theocratic nation – has regional designs as in being the top Muslim dog in the Middle East. Iran is the only Muslim nation that has an open destructive against both Israel and America that will undoubted be threatening because the development of nuclear weapons.


Iran’s principle allies in the region are Assad’s Shia-Alawite minority Syrian government and Hezbollah-Shia terrorist dominated Lebanon. Taking out Assad from this religious maniac alliance of Iran-Syria-Hezbollah will disrupt the military designs of Iran.


Of course the problem that Danny will point is that Syrian rebels fighting against Assad are religious nuts of radical Sunni-Muslims that essentially and probably will lead to a problem for the USA and Israel. My thinking is though that the USA and Israel already have a problem with Israel. So why not place Iran is a situation that some of their nefarious regional goals are disrupted by killing or booting Assad out of Syrian control?


So here I am in the unenviable position of both agreeing and disagreeing with Danny Jeffrey’s most recent essay on R2P, aiding the Syrian rebels, Obama’s support of those rebels and Senator McCain’s pushing Obama to support those rebels.


And yet I also have to tell you that Obama is the most corrupt President as to supporting the Constitutional principles of the Founding Fathers since Aaron Burr almost attained that Presidency in our then young Republic. When Obama says “Change” he means transform America away from the Bill of Rights and to at least make America a Multiculturalist Socialist-Democratic nation and at worst a Marxist utopia with no Liberty whatsoever.

Freedom Rings 1776


Ask anyone who knows at least a little about American history the name of our most famous traitor and they will tell you that it is Benedict Arnold. The day is soon coming when he will no longer bear that ignominious distinction, as his replacement, Senator John McCain, is waiting in the wings. McCain is but a self aggrandizing sock puppet for none other than George Soros, and what Soros wants, McCain provides, at any and all costs to America. He is a Traitor First Class, serving our enemies, unworthy to hold office, and not even deserving of the air he breathes.

Hussein Obama is hell bent on reestablishing the Ottoman Empire, referred to today as the new Caliphate. It is a giant leap on mankind's road to hell. One more giant leap is yet another part of Obama's plan to destroy America and reduce it either to a third world status or ashes, and always there at the mentor's heel is Traitor McCain.

Were the outcome not to be such a calamity it would be almost amusing to watch the symbiotic relationship of these two men who once vied for the same office, and today kneel before the same man, George Soros. It is Kabuki Theater at its finest.

So many are so confused by the vast gains of Islam with the political aid of western politicians, and they accuse those politicians of incompetence, right up until the time that they reelect them. So many are simply not capable of grasping the long and sordid trail of deceit and betrayal, and the methodology is so convoluted that they grow confused and reject what lies before them. Many do not understand while others do not want to believe the connection between the super elite of the Globalists and the tribesmen of Islam, but the connection, though twisted, is there if you but connect the dots.

Adolph Hitler tried to conquer the world and failed. The elite who decide the fate of nations have learned from his errors:

"You see, it's been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn't we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion too would have been more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?
Adolph Hitler

Today people wonder why Christianity is under attack worldwide, and why Islam is growing by leaps and bounds. Hitler's statement above explains that. Christians are superfluous in the grand scheme of the NWO as they do not fit into the world of tomorrow that the Globalists are shaping. Look to Egypt. Every Friday the Coptic Christians are afraid to be on the streets as Muslims go to their Mosques and bow to Mecca, and every Friday night another church is burned.  We hear nothing of the problem from Obama, our Congress, or Senate as they are far more concerned with helping the Muslim Brotherhood overthrow Assad of Syria.

What was the life of a Christian under Assad? I have no idea, but they chose to remain. Now they abandon Syria with all possible haste before the wrath of the Jihadists that we are financing. The leaders of our nation have not only turned against Christianity, they have rejected all that is moral, and we are a lesser people for it. Morality is not a commodity that you barter away one slice at a time in order to get along with those who pose a threat, but in the name of spreading democracy and multiculturalism we have done just that.

Last year I wrote an essay (listed below in Suggested Reading) entitled "Our Next War...Syria". My greatest concern was The Responsibility To Protect (R2P), a George Soros generated plan to provide a no fly zone over any nation that Islamic Jihadists are attacking. That was what defeated Libya and at the time I stated that this assault on Libya's air force was only to set a precedent, predicting that the tactic would one day be called upon to defend yet more Jihadists when they attack Israel.

Now John McCain is beating the drum to once again employ R2P to aid his heroes, the Islamists attacking Syria.

From BBC News...

Syrian Conflict: US Senator John McCain Visits Rebels

General Idris called for weapons to continue their fight, as well as a no fly zone and air strikes on government targets. These are all steps that Arizona Sen. McCain has previously urged the Obama administration to take.



In my previous essay "Our Next War...Syria" I pointed out that Obama loves leading from behind, always appearing ever reluctant to enter a new war yet does so at the prompting of McCain and associates, thus giving the next stage of Jihad an air of bipartisanship. Take note of the adjoining image. Jihadists wear no uniforms. They are technically civilians, "rebels" if you will, but these rebels are not from Syria. They have come from all over the Middle East and some from Europe and the UK. They are mercenaries, invaders, paid for their service. The lack of uniforms give the illusion that they are civilians thus permitting the terms of R2P to be employed to protect the "innocent". After you finish laughing, please continue, as the plot thickens.

From The Daily Beast (One of Obama's lap dogs)
Exclusive: Obama Asks Pentagon For Syria No-Fly Zone Plan

Along with the no-fly zone plans, the White House is considering arming parts of the Syrian opposition and formally recognizing the Syrian opposition council.

"Formally recognizing the Syrian opposition council". That sounds so innocuous, but then again, so do many terms of political non speak we use today. What it really means, however, is quite significant. During the early days of the Libyan "civil war" the Libyan opposition was also recognized as the official rulers of Libya and the globalists of the world proceeded to set up a central bank under the name of that opposition, thus delegitimatizing Qaddafi while he was still very much in power.

From Bloomberg...
Libyan Rebel Council Forms Oil Company To Replace Qaddafi's

Libyan rebels in Benghazi said they have created a national oil company to replace the corporation controlled by leader Muammar Qaddafi whose assets were frozen by the United Nations Security Council.

From International Business Times...
Obama And Erdogan Demand Assad Step Down

"We're going to keep increasing the pressure on the Assad regime and working with the Syrian opposition. We both agree that Assad needs to go." said Obama, adding that Turkey has a crucial role to play in the region.

I cannot help but wonder if that crucial role is the founding of a New Caliphate in Turkey. One other issue I must wonder is Syria going to be our bridge too far?

Russia needs Syria as a friendly port for their navy in the Mediterranean. They are not going to easily give up such a valuable ally. If Syria's air force is indeed grounded or destroyed by NATO adopting the proposition of R2P, that will be a turning point for the Jihadists trying to conquer that nation.

And now along with the McCain/Obama alliance following Soros' lead of a no fly zone we must consider that our Navy pilots may soon be flying over Syria. There remains a major complication...Russia has promised shipments of S-300 anti aircraft missiles to Syria.

A simple fact of the matter is that Assad is not planning to lose and Russia is not planning to let him lose, nor is Iran.

From Spiegel Online...
Syrian Rebels In Trouble: German Intelligence Sees Assad Regaining Hold

Not even a year ago, German intelligence predicted Syrian autocrat Bashar Assad's regime would soon collapse. Now the agency instead believes the rebels are in trouble. Government troops are set to make significant advances, it predicts.

From The Washington Post... (Dated May 17,2013)
Russia Sends Warships And Missiles To Syria

Russia has sent more than a dozen war ships to patrol the waters near Syria, U.S. military spokesmen said on Friday.

The Country also gave Syria supersonic anti-ship cruise missiles, model P-800 Onika, United Press International reported. The message: Moscow is fully supportive of Syrian President Bashar Assad, U.S. officials believe.

Still , other U.S. officials are saying the missiles are actually headed to Hezbollah in Lebanon - realizing Israel's greatest concern. More airstrikes from Israel could be on the way, military analysts say in the UPI report.

From Fox News...
Israel Says Russia's Plan To Give Anti-Aircraft Missiles To Syria A 'Threat'

Israel's defense chief said Tuesday a Russian plan to supply sophisticated anti-aircraft missile to Syria is a 'threat' and signaled that Israel is prepared to use force to stop the delivery.



These people are not rattling sabers. They mean what they say and no one is backing down. A few months ago most of the world was convinced that Assad was about to be defeated. Quite the contrary, his people are loyal to him and have pushed the Jihadists back, which is why McCain has now visited his friends in Al Qaeda to promise American intervention.

One passing thought: We refused to send military aid to our people in Benghazi and now the stage is being set to sacrifice a large portion of our military in the defense of Al Qaeda ... As I said, just a passing thought.

From The New York Times...

Assad Warns Israel, Claiming A Stockpile Of Russian Weapons

President Bashar al-Assad of Syria displayed a new level of defiance on Thursdays, warning Israel that he could permit attacks on the Golan Heights and suggesting that he had secured plenty of weapons from Russian - possibly including an advanced missile system - as his opponents faltered politically and Hezbollah fighter infused force into his military campaign to crush the Syrian insurgency.

And the latest:

From USA Today...



Israel warned Thursday that it needed to prepare for a "new era" of war in the Middle East as the Syrian regime claimed the first shipment of anti-aircraft missiles from Russia had arrived. The Message comes as the Syrian opposition announced it will not attend a peace conference pushed by the Obama administration, crushing hopes of a ceasefire agreement soon in a war that is rapidly spilling across borders.

While the following comment was reported on May 5, 2013 it does set the tone regarding our future involvement:

From Business Insider...

Obama Says We Have A 'Moral Obligation' In Syria

Obama defended his government's action in sending large quantities of humanitarian aid to Syrian refugees, providing non-lethal help to rebels and isolating President Bashar al-Assad in the international community.

And three days later, comes the turning point in the war. Let there be no doubt, Hezbollah is a well trained and disciplined fighting force.

From The New York Times...

Hezbollah Takes Risks By Fighting Rebels In Syria

Near Damascus, Hezbollah fighters are defending the shrine of Sayida Zainab, revered by Shiite Muslims, from encroaching Sunni rebels. To the north, they are not just part of a Syrian government drive to take back the strategic town of Qusair, rebels say, they are leading it.

Nothing like introducing fresh troops into an old war to turn things around.

As I indicated earlier, the "rebels" of Syria are not from Syria. They are paid Jihadists from all over the Middle East, thus suffering from the lack of a common cause and unity.

From Stars And Stripes...

Syrian Rebel Leader Admits Difficulty In Unifying Fighters

The defected Syrian general whom the United States has tapped as its conduit for aid to the rebels has acknowledged in an interview with McClatchy that his movement is badly fragmented and lacks the military skill needed to topple the government of President Bashar Assad.

And that brings us to the situation that we have gotten ourselves into. We have not only tied in with a bunch of terrorists, now we find that they are incompetent and disorganized terrorists as well. This is why McCain and Obama are so desperate to involve our military and our aircraft in this war that in no way will benefit America.

I now refer you back to the headline above Russia Sends Warships And Missiles To Syria. That article tells us that there are now over a dozen Russian ships ready to defend Syria and that they have also given Syria supersonic anti-ship cruise missiles to use against both our ships and Israel's.

Another article from above Syria Says It Has Advanced Missiles From Russia.   Those advanced missile are the ones that can knock our aircraft out of the sky while we defend a bunch of motley terrorists on the ground.         

Recently the deployment of an Aircraft Carrier Task Force to the Mediterranean was scrubbed due to budget cuts and the cost of Obama's fifty dollars a gallon "green" fuel. Now we get yet more bad news.

From Breaking Defense...

Gen. Odierno: Budget Crunch Will Render Army Unready For Syria & Hybrid War

While the Army can keep troops headed for Afghanistan trained up and ready to go, the ongoing budget gridlock threatens it ability to prepare for crisis around the world - from North Korea to Syria.

In short, while our troops have been trained to win hearts and minds we have fallen behind on the basic premise that our military is supposed to be prepared for all out war. We are not.

And now, with a community organizer at the helm we have this:

From The Times Of Israel...

Hezbollah To Open 'New Front' In Golan Heights

Iran has convinced Syria to allow Hezbollah to open a "new front" against Israel in the Golan Heights, the London based Arabic language newspaper al-Hayat reported Wednesday. Tehran, seeking to prevent the fall of Syrian President Bashar Assad's government, asked Damascus if Hezbollah could set up a new military front against Israel in the Golan.



Report: New Iranian Missile Launchers Could Overwhelm Israeli Defenses


Iran could have enough launchers to send a salvo of medium range ballistic missiles that would overwhelm Israeli ballistic missile defense systems, according  to a Wednesday report from IHS Jane's.

Everything that I have posted above points to an ever increasing chance for all out war in the Middle East. Israel's primary defense since The Six Day War has been her Air Force. Now the array of S-300 missiles that Syria has procured from Russia is a total game changer. An all out attack on the Golan, coupled with Hamas attacking Israel from Palestine and an a barrage of missiles incoming from Iran is what Netanyahu refers to when he says that Israel needs to prepare for a new era of war in the Middle East.

And the above scenario does not include the possibility that Egypt could join in the attack. Thanks to Obama they are well armed with our latest aircraft and tanks, fortunately the Egyptian government is in disarray.

Americans have long expected Obama to declare Martial Law. A few months ago I suggested that he could not do so unless he decimated our military as they would fight to oppose dictatorship. In an essay listed below entitled Civil Upheaval And Our Military I suggested one way to destroy our armed forces was to involve them, unprepared in a war such as Syria. I often hope that I am wrong.

About Danny Jeffrey:


I'm sixty eight and since Ronald Reagan left office I have watched my country slowly deteriorate as freedoms are lost and the value of our currency dwindles. This has been a slow but steady decline until Barrack Obama entered the White House. I will not refer to this man as President. That is a job that deserves respect and he has earned none at all. I am convinced that were it not for the Tea Party stirring up the public we would now be living under a total dictatorship. He seeks only power and has no loyalty at all to the United States, and as long as he is in office I shall write to any who will read and speak of what he is and what he is doing to this country.
