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.

This article condenses information provided by RT (with extensive quotes from an RT report) to arrive at what he/she sees as the main purpose behind the US backed strategy to destabilize Syria. The argument is very convincing regarding the real motivations which are covered over by a massive propaganda effort directed toward Americans via corporate media. 
This latest US war is so simple. Remove Assad in order to remove Russia’s gas supplies to Europe. Once Assad is gone the US can put its very own, home grown dictator to oversee the construction of a Qatar gas pipeline to Europe.

Syria is all about the US’s fixation with destroying Russia…fixation, obsession really.
What is really complicated for Empire directors is mediating the various motives of the many participating actors so that this managed chaos can accomplish their objective. It's no wonder that some US generals are confused about the strategy.
