Material posted: Publication date: 17-10-2014

In 1997 there was one of the key U.S. strategic centers of modernity, whose task is the formation of U.S. foreign policy for decades to come.

The project for a New American Century (PNAC) was founded by the head of administration of Vice President Dan Quayle during the reign of George H. W. Bush, William Kristol and a member of the Council on foreign relations, USA Robert Kagan. Officially declared purpose of this non-governmental organization included "the formation of the new century geopolitical environment conducive to American principles and interests" and the pressure "the U.S. hostile regimes".

Among prominent personalities who took part in the "project" were the most influential politicians in modern American history, such as former U.S. Secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld, former Vice President dick Cheney, former world Bank President Paul Wolfowitz and Deputy Secretary of defense for global strategy under Ronald Reagan Richard Perle. In September 2000 a group of PNAC released a policy document entitled "the Reconstruction of American defense: strategies, forces and resources for the new century", which proclaimed the necessity of establishing military influence of the US around the world to protect their strategic interests: "Preserving the desirable strategic situation in which the U.S. currently requires a global military superiority now and in the future."

- Planned war

In the report, PNAS the necessity to increase military spending to ensure that "military superiority" and argues (a year before the events of 9/11) that all of this would not be necessary, if not "new pearl Harbor". In addition, the document contains a list of modes that the development team considers "deeply hostile to America". North Korea, Iraq, Iran, Libya, and Syria, marked as enemies of the U.S. well before the illegal war in Iraq in 2003 and in Libya in 2011 and the ongoing proxy war in Syria.

In 2007, new evidence supporting the thesis that the wars were pre-planned Anglo-American elite for years before their actual beginning. It happened when a retired army General and commander of the NATO forces Wesley Clark unveiled a plan circulating at the Pentagon in 2001, which included the attack 7 countries in five years. In addition to those countries named in the report, PNAS, were also mentioned Lebanon, Somalia, and Sudan.

American journalist Steven McMillan concludes: "the Reality is that all wars, past and future, planned in advance, long before the audience will hear the appeals of politicians and justify the attack. Countries that resist absorption into the system of the Anglo-American-European international order and allow multinational corporations to exploit their natural resources are subject to pressure for regime change much earlier than would give them an excuse for intervention."

Israel also benefits from the removal of Assad by the West. In 1996 study group led by neocon Richard Perle prepared for the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu a document entitled "a clean break: a new strategy for the protection of the state", justifying the strategic importance of the elimination from power of Saddam Hussein and the need to mitigate the regime in Syria: "Israel can shape its strategic space in cooperation with Turkey and Jordan by weakening Syria. These efforts can also focus on the removal of Saddam Hussein, a strategic objective of Israel, deserving of recognition as a means of curbing the regional ambitions of Syria".

The statement made by the Russian Air attacks of the Islamic State can be used to reduce the Assad regime

Russian foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov warned last month the world community that the US-led air strikes on ISIS in Syria also aimed at the Syrian government forces to "weaken the positions of the army of Bashar al-Assad". U.S. Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, recently reiterated that the aim of Washington in Syria is the removal of Assad from power in Damascus and that "moderate Syrian opposition is an optimal alternative to the current regime." She did not mention in his statement that ISIS is a key part of this most of the Syrian opposition and for several years fighting the Syrian government with financial and other support from the West. However, the truth is that the Assad regime will remain in power in the coming decades, if the Western elite fail to find excuse for military strikes on key military and energy targets in Syria.

The story about the Turkish strikes against Syria under a false flag

An article by Pulitzer prize winner Seymour Hersh, published in April this year, is called "the Rat Line and the Red Line," claims that the gas attack last year in ghouta was carried out by the Syrian rebels and planned by the Turkish authorities against the Syrian government. In the article the author quoted the former intelligence officer: "Today we know that it was a covert operation planned by Erdogan's people to force Obama to cross the "red line". When the news about the gas attack reached the official media in the West, calls for war increased enormously. The outbreak of war was averted only because of massive public protest that forced the British Parliament to vote against intervention in Syria, and with Russia's mediation in the conclusion of the agreement on the establishment of international control over chemical weapons available to the Syrian government.

Point of view about the possibility of Turkish participation in the planning of this attack was confirmed when the Turkish government the officials of the higher echelon in the beginning of the year were caught in the discussion of "attack under a false flag" on its own territory in order to justify war against Syria. Was overheard the conversation of these officials on the proposed organization of the explosion on the grave of the grandmother of the founder of the Ottoman Empire Suleiman Shah, which is located in the Syrian city of Aleppo. On an audio recording of the voice of the head of Turkish intelligence Hakan Fidan: "listen, Listen commander if you need an excuse, I'll give it. I will send four people and they will strike a missile attack on wilderness. This is not a problem, a pretext will be created".
