I have read a number of credible articles providing evidence that the recent terrorist incident in Paris was aided and abetted by sociopathic Empire agents--but, for what purpose? I thought I'd consult an Empire source for an explanation. This posted article offers what appears to be a reasonable and more cool-headed approach, with "humanitarianism" thrown in, to deal with terrorism. Note especially these two paragraphs:
I have written elsewhere, and in the blog post below, about my own recommendations for how to ramp up our role in both Syria and Iraq, in alliance with indigenous forces, NATO allies, and Middle East partners as well. That ramped-up involvement should include more U.S., NATO, and Gulf Cooperation Council special forces on the ground in both countries, to conduct raids and better orchestrate aerial attacks, but especially to accelerate training of Syrian moderate fighters and the Iraqi army (and to facilitate provision of humanitarian relief in places within Syria as well). It should include creative use of no-fly zones to hasten creation of conditions for a confederal settlement in Syria--targeting not airplanes in the air, but Syrian (not Russian) airfields and aircraft on the ground that have previously ignored our demands to stop bombing innocent Syrian populations. [my emphasis]This appears to be the Empire's answer to the recent Russian involvement and their attacks on terrorist armies operating in Syria. This also lends support to Cartalucci's (and others) understanding of the Paris attack and the Empire's motivation to aid their terrorist armies operating in Syria in an attempt to rescue them from Russian attacks.
Most of all, for this weekend, it should lead John Kerry and Barack Obama, in their foreign travels, not to pursue the failed logic of the current Syria peace talks but to explore a confederal model and seek buy-in from as many key players and allies as possible. Our military strategy needs to begin with a solid and realistic political framework. In Syria in particular, we lack that at present.
Here we see Patrick Henningsen, blogger at 21st Century Wire, who essentially expresses the same view in this 12:58m video interview from RT.
