The day after Obama’s reelection was announced, I wrote that Obama will be more reckless in his second term than in his first, in that he will work with NATO, France, and Britain, in attacking Syria, and on how the only one who would gain from this attack will be Turkey, because the Turks, with Assad gone, can more easily revive its former Ottoman empire. Here is what I wrote:
Expect to see Obama’s actions on the Middle East to be reckless, and the cause of chaos. We must expect to see the rise of Turkey following the future fall of Assad thanks to the U.S., Western allies, and NATO. With Assad gone, Turkey will then gradually take power over Syria.
I wrote my concern of America and Nato attacking Syria on the pretext of chemical weapons use back in March, in which I said:
Our primary concern should be that one day our own nation will work with NATO to militarily strike the Assad regime and allow the revolutionaries to prevail. Such an act will not only enable Islamic fundamentalism to further expand, but empower Turkey to commence its much aspired empire–that is–a revived Ottoman empire.
Now it appears that these things are coming to pass. We already have the United States, alongside its Nato allies Britain and France, readying for military intervention.
What is also interesting is Israel’s change of stance in regards to Assad’s chemical weapons arsenal. Last year Netanyahu affirmed that he was not concerned about Assad, but was worried about Islamists getting their hands on Syria’s chemical weapons. In the same year, Israel’s defense ministry, Amos Gilad, said that he wasn’t concerned about the chemical weapons as long as Assad had them under control:
There are significant amounts of chemical weapons in Syria, and we have to be ready and prepared if the Syrian regime loses control of its chemical weapons arsenal.. At the moment, they are maintaining control of it.
But now Israel is supporting the intervention, on the basis of a monitored conversation within the Syrian government on the use of chemical weapons. The Israelis affirm that this is proof enough, but they have not acknowledged that the rebels are the ones using chemical weapons on civilians, not Assad. And even if Assad did utilize chemical weaponry, why then should the US and its allies rally up arms? Assad is killing terrorists, and the rebels are slaughtering civilians.
The only people who will win are the Turks, they want Assad gone because he would be a hinderance to their aspirations of becoming a world power and the leading sovereignty in the Muslim world, and ultimately the revived Ottoman empire. The people who will suffer the most, on the other hand, are the Christians.
If America ever decides to send troops on Syrian ground, expect to see American soldiers and government workers beheaded on the internet.
