NATO has waged a covert war against the Syrian government by sending thousands of al-Qaeda militants into the country to fight against the government, a political analyst tells Press TV.
Author and historian Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley said in an interview on Wednesday that NATO is fueling the unrest in Syria by creating chaos across the country and siding with al-Qaeda militants against the Damascus government.
“Military tacticians know the tactic of swarming and swarming means that you can throw a lot of inferior forces at an enemy with the point being to create chaos and confusion in which more qualified forces can then go on and take certain key points,” Tarpley said.
“The reports that I have now are that NATO brought in thousands and thousands of fighters from Libya in particular but also from Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, a whole swat of countries and they’ve essentially gone to the bottom of the barrel of the al-Qaeda sort of patsy milieu in these countries and they’ve thrown them across the borders,” he added.
He also described the July 18 deadly explosion at the headquarters of the National Security in the Syrian capital which killed top security officials, as an attempt by NATO to overestimate the level of violence in Syria ahead of the UN Security Council meeting.
“It looks like what was done last week was an attempt by NATO to orchestrate such a perfect storm. We had the resolution brought into the United Nations if that had passed, that would have led to a collapse of some parts of Syria,” Tarpley said adding that “There was the attempted decapitation of the Syrian leadership structure by I believe a predator drone firing a missile and not some suicide bomber coming into the building where that occurred, where the four intelligence and military leaders were slain but you’ve also got an attempt to bring down the currency which seems to have misfired.
He also described Kofi Anan’s peace plan for Syria as a smokescreen to hide the reality of all Western-backed operations in the country.
