The United States and Saudi Arabia have devised a new plan to destroy Syria after they did not reach their goals by creating unrest in the country for more than one year, Press TV reports.
According to the report, after the failure of all efforts to topple the Syrian regime, Washington and Riyadh are devising a new plan.
The plan has two goals, firstly to show that no peace will take place in Syria without the US consent, and secondly to tire out the Syrian government’s supporters to give their backing for the administration.
The US and Saudi Arabia have reached the conclusion that the Syrian army cannot be divided and that incumbent President Bashar Assad is in full control of the military. They also know the Syrian security has good control over the entire country even areas where the opposition sways influence.
Meanwhile, the report added, although the Syrian economy has weakened, because of the conflicts, it is rapidly recovering.
The US has organized several committees in order to implement the new plot in Syria, which include political, military, and security committees.
The political committee comprises US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as supervisor; Derek Chollet, as the executive manager; former US Ambassador to Syria Robert Ford; Fredrick Hoff as a member, and Jeffrey Feltman as the coordinator.
Feltman, according to the report, also controls another political group whose members include Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal, and Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim.
Feltman also oversees a Doha-based office for special security coordination in Syria. Its members include intelligence agencies of such countries as the US, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, NATO, and Libya.
Former Saudi Ambassador to the US Bandar bin Sultan shares his experience in Syria with the group and Feltman reviews the gathered information.
The military committee includes Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, as the head, as well as Major General Charles Cleveland, and General Frank Gibb.
This group works with other groups, but has the final say on logistic aid to Syrian rebels, including volume of logistic aid and the kind of intelligence which should be provided to the Syrian opposition groups.
The security committee includes the representatives of 7-10 American intelligence agencies as well as US National Security Advisor Tom Donilon, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and Director of the Central Intelligence Agency General David Petraeus.
There are several branches in the security committee whose mission is to draw up security plots and report on the situation in Syria to the head of the committee in addition to preparing reports on the US security strategy on the situation in Syria.
The main goals of that strategy include forcing Syria into submission to the US policies and preventing the Russians from securing a permanent foothold in Syria.
Other goals include breaking up Iran-Syria alliance by making the Syrian government take sides with the US instead of Iran or Russia, intensifying the psychological and propaganda war by the US as well as its regional and international allies, transferring democracy to Syria without confronting with the country or risking Israel’s natal security, and cutting Tehran’s connection with Syria and the Lebanese Hezbollah.
The plan will be implemented by direct military operations of voluntary battalions operating across Syria’s borders with neighboring countries and regions including Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan, Golan, Iraqi Kurdistan, as well as Iraq’s nomadic regions.
Launching guerilla warfare in the Syrian cities, special operations in areas under the control of the Syrian government (including bomb attacks), popular activities combined with paramilitary operations, and psychological war against Syria’s military and intelligence forces and people are other stages of the executive phase of the plan.
The report noted that Saudi intelligence has reached an agreement with US and Israeli security companies based in Geneva to increase armed conflicts in Syria without engaging other countries. The conflicts will be led by retired military and intelligence experts that are theoretically in agreement with al-Qaeda.
Meanwhile, the Americans are going to create small protected areas in Lebanon and use them as military training camps. These camps will be established by the US, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey to be used by al-Qaeda and the Syrian opposition. Some parts of Iraq, especially in Anbar Province and the Kurdistan region, which is ruled by Massoud Barzani, have been chosen for the purpose because Barzani is closely working with Israel’s intelligence agency, Mossad.
Saudi Arabia will, in the meantime, work on Syria’s big nomadic tribes most of which live around the city of Deir ez-Zor and in the Syrian Desert which extends up to Homs.
The Lebanese government is also under pressure from Feltman’s assistant, Elizabeth Dale, to release 238 Wahhabi militants who used to be members of such rebels groups as Fathul Islam and Jund al-Sham.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March 2011 and more than 6,000 police forces, army troops, security forces and pro-government people have been killed in the unrest.
