Luc MICHEL with PCN-NCP-SPO – Syria Committees – Belga – AFP – Interfax – RIA Novosti – Der Spiegel / 2012 06 01 /
NATO has its mad dogs.
French President Hollande is one of them. No difference between the Social Democrats with a French passport of Hollande and Sarkozy and his neocons with a French passport. With as a common ally BHL, the likudnik with an Israeli passport, who after having handed over Libya to the Islamists of the NTC wants to drag Syria into war.
BHL, « LIKUDNIK WITH A FRENCH PASSPORT » WANTS A NEW WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST!
The French writer Bernard-Henri Lévy calls on François Hollande in an open letter on the need for France to « take the initiative in Syria » … The Zionist hawk intends to replay the scenario that destroyed Libya. And destroying after Gaddafi’s Jamahiriya Ba’athist Syria, that is to say, the two Arab states that alone were still standing up to Zionism. « Find someone with a motive » …
« Will France do, for Hula and Homs, what it did for Benghazi and Misrata?(sic) Will you use your considerable personal credit, and that of our country, to return to our allies of yesterday and, with them, with Great Britain, the United States, the Arab League, Turkey, decide on a strategy that goes beyond the + full support to the Annan mission+? », asks the writer who had convinced Nicolas Sarkozy to engage himself diplomatically and militarily in the Libyan conflict.
« I know, Mr. President, you have other urgencies (…). But what was most urgent: going to Afghanistan to prepare the early withdrawal of our troops or take the lead in Syria? « writes BHL.
This letter must be published on Wednesday in several European Media of BHL personal Network, including Le Point, Il Corriere della Sera, El Pais, Die Welt, Espressen, and the American The Huffington Post (which Anne Sinclair, DSK’s wife , leads the French edition).
HOLLANDE WITH THE NATO HAWKS
Westerners have hardened their positions on Tuesday vis-à-vis the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, Europeans and Americans announcing the expulsion of Syrian diplomatic representatives in their capital in retaliation for the massacre of Hula which made108 dead.
François Hollande is directly involved in the Western offensive against Syria and announced on Tuesday that Syria’s ambassador to France would be expelled « next Monday or Tuesday, in response to the massacre this weekend in the town of Hula. » A massacre that nobody knows the authors, as confirmed by the Russian Minister Lavrov, and timely to destabilize the Syrian government.
He also said that the group of « friends of Syria » (sic), the kind of « friends » who have already bombed Libya to sow death and destruction, would be held « in early July » in Paris. Hollande also says he does not « preclude an armed intervention. »
OTHER WARMONGER, LITTLE BELGIUM!
Didier Reynders, (Liberal) Belgian Foreign Minister, spoke Wednesday morning. According to him, we « will achieve nothing from Assad without military presence ».
The Belgian Minister of Defence Peter De Crem (Flemish Christian Democrat), for his part, has not « ruled out the idea of military intervention in Syria within an international contingent, if the decision to launch such an operation is adopted by the international community. » « If they call to Belgium and that the government deems it necessary, we can do it, » he said on Tuesday to the Belgian media.
Virtually bankrupt, the Belgian non-state, geopolitical anomaly on the mend, is not even capable of ensuring security at the heart of Brussels, but is involved in all colonial and neocolonial adventures since the bloody King Leopold II, the genocidal butcher of Congo.
RUSSIA REPEATS ITS OPPOSITION TO ANY MILITARY INTERVENTION IN SYRIA
Faced with these threats of war and intervention of NATO, Russia believes that the statement of the President of the Security Council « is an adequate response. »
Russia considers « premature » any new UN action against Syria after the massacre of Hula, said Wednesday the Russian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Gennady Gatilov to the Russian agency Interfax.
« We believe that examination of the Security Council of the United Nations of any new measures to influence the situation is premature, » said Mr. Gatilov. The diplomat said that « the press statement of the President of the Security Council of the UN concerning the tragic events at Hula » was « a strong enough signal for the Syrian and represents an adequate response of the UN Security Council ».
Gatilov has also hinted that Russia would not support a resolution on military action in the Security Council of the United Nations, responding to the statement by French President François Hollande who did not rule out military intervention in terms of the UN in Syria. « We always said we are against any foreign intervention in the Syrian conflict because it will make things worse for Syria and the region and will have unpredictable consequences, » said Mr. Gatilov.
Russia has been heavily criticized by the West in recent months for obstructing in the UN Security Council Western resolutions condemning the regime in Damascus. Moscow has also continued to supply arms to his longtime ally. The weapons that NATO, Qatar, Saudi Arabia or AKP Islamist Turkey deliver to the armed rebellion and Islamic terrorist groups in Syria do not bother, for their part, the West …
CHINA SAYS AGAIN ITS OPPOSITION TO ANY MILITARY INTERVENTION IN SYRIA
Russia was quickly followed by China, also opposed to any armed intervention. Both states currently blocking a resolution to that effect in the UN Security Council.
« China is opposed to military intervention in Syria and is opposed to regime change by force, » said the spokesman of Chinese Foreign Ministry, Liu Weimin.
Mr. Liu so said again the traditional position of Beijing, an important ally of Damascus, a position that the spokesman also completed by calling for the implementation of the six-point peace plan of the UN and Arab League mediator Kofi Annan.
VOICES IN BERLIN AND IN LUXEMBOURG AGAINST WAR
Within NATO, discordant voices rise too.
The German government sees no reason to « speculate on military options » in Syria, said a spokesman questioned on the position of French President François Hollande, who left open the option of military intervention in that country. « From the perspective of the German government, there is no reason to speculate on military options regarding the situation in Syria, » said the spokesman for the Foreign Ministry at a press conference in Berlin. Thereby explicitly disowning the foreign minister Guido Westerwelle, a NATO hawk, well known for his aggressiveness against Minsk or Moscow.
Moreover, the foreign minister of Luxembourg, Jean Asselborn, has also warned against a military intervention in Syria « that would cause tens of thousands of deaths » in an interview Wednesday to the German weekly Der Spiegel. « If we intervene without thinking, we would count the dead, not in thousands, but in tens of thousands, » he said in this interview published on the website of the newspaper. « I know no Western country that believes it can resolve the conflict through military intervention, » he said. Asked about the statement by French President François Hollande who said Tuesday night that an armed intervention under UN mandate in Syria was not excluded, Mr Asselborn said, « the probability that the five powers with a veto agree on military action equals zero « .
Note that the new French President Hollande, widely criticized within the EU moderates, has in fact joined the camp of the hawks of NATO.
What do think of it the anti-imperialist activists of the Communist Party or the Left Front that directly contributed to the election of Hollande?
