We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Syria: NATO’s Last Desperate Options in Lost Proxy War

Click here to access article by Tony Cartalucci from New Eastern Outlook.

Using Empire primary sources which revealed their directors past plans and given the current facts on the ground, Cartalucci speculates on the various moves that various Empire players, including Saudi Arabia and Turkey, might make, and are presently considering, to salvage something out of their deteriorating plans to destabilize Syria.

Because Empire planners together will their Mid-East allies of Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Israel had secretly established the proxy army known as ISIS but always identified the latter as a terrorist army which somehow magically appeared fully armed and with sophisticated internet skills, these countries are now forced to cloak their salvaging operation plans as "fighting ISIS".
ISIS, as it has always been designed to be, serves merely as a pretext for justifying any prospective operation by the US and its regional allies – an operation that will be in all reality aimed at challenging and rolling back Syrian and Russian gains on the battlefield – or at the very least, providing an unassailable sanctuary within Syrian territory for the West’s defeated proxies to retreat to.
And you should also read Joe Lauria's take on the Syrian geopolitical situation in an article entitled "Risking World War III in Syria". He expresses a more ominous warning about the potential for a confrontation between Russia and the US.
What we are potentially facing is a war that goes beyond the Soviet-U.S. proxy wars of the Cold War era, and beyond the proxy war that has so far taken place in the five-year Syrian civil war. Russia is already present in Syria. The entry of the United States and its allies would risk a direct confrontation between the two largest nuclear powers on earth.
