WE saw with Iraq how the US and the Media demonised Saddam to warrant their invasion. To this day no proof of any weapons of mass destructure have ever been found in Iraq, yet the country remains a chaotic shambles. The once highly advanced Iraq is today nothing but a heap of ash and waste.
The same happened in LIbya recently when, once again, the politicians used their most powerful tool - the media - to demonise Qaddafi to warrant their support for Al-Qaeda rebels in order to topple Qaddafi and destroy Libya.
Syria is a different kettle of fish of course, because their defense force is a force to be reckoned with and now Russia has intervened. The combined forces of Russia and Syria provide a dangerous and most powerful combination.
If NATO was arrogant enough to attack Syria now it would be suicide or the spark of WW3. For once someone, a bigger brother, stepped in to stop the bullies, but should the bullies be brave (or stupid) enough to go ahead and try their luck the global economic collapse could be upon us much sooner than expected.
The winds of change is one thing, but these are winds of actual real serious WAR!
Prison Planet.com - Russian Warships Enter Syrian Waters To Prevent NATO Attack:
Moscow in aggressive move to stop another “humanitarian intervention”

Russian warships have entered Syrian territorial waters in an aggressive move designed to prevent any NATO-led attack on the country under the guise of a “humanitarian intervention”.
Russia has stepped up efforts to defend Syria in recent days, with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov keen to frame the violence in the country as a civil war in defiance of claims by western powers that President Bashar al-Assad has overseen a bloody crackdown on innocent protesters.
As we saw prior to the attack on Libya, which was also framed as a “humanitarian intervention,” NATO powers are keen to demonize Assad’s government by characterizing attacks by his forces as atrocities while largely ignoring similar attacks by opposition forces, such as this week’s raid on a Syrian air force intelligence complex that killed or wounded 20 security police.
U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner rejects Russia’s claim that Syria is in a civil war, stating, “We believe it’s very much the Assad regime carrying out a campaign of violence, intimidation, and repression against innocent protesters.”
As we have previously reported, despite overwhelming speculation that Iran will be the next target of a military assault, Syria is the likeliest target for the next salvo of NATO-backed regime change.
US President Barack Obama got the ball rolling back in August when he called on President al-Assad to step down. The UN has already withdrawn all non-essential staff from the country.
Without Russia’s help, Syria would be largely defenseless against a NATO attack. “I don’t see any purely military problems. Syria has no defence against Western systems … [But] it would be more risky than Libya. It would be a heavy military operation,” former French air force chief Jean Rannou commented.
Given that the western press has proven adept at manufacturing lies to justify military interventions, whether the actions of Assad’s regime represent genuine atrocities or legitimate conduct in the midst of a civil war remains unclear. Some have claimed the abuses are being embellished, while both former CIA agent Robert Baer and ex-MI6 officer Alastair Crooke point out that the Syrian people definitely want change, but not in the form of a NATO “humanitarian” assault.
