State Department Officials Call for Military Intervention to Topple Syria’s Assad

Source: infowars.com

Advocates of illegal military intervention in Syria to force out Bashar al-Assad signed an internal memo protesting the current Obama administration policy according to a report posted by The Wall Street Journal.

“We are aware of a dissent channel cable written by a group of State Department employees regarding the situation in Syria. We are reviewing the cable now, which came up very recently,” said State Department spokesman John Kirby. “This is an important vehicle that the secretary, as well as the department institutionally, values and respects.”

The memo sent by more than 50 rank and file officials calls for a ”judicious use of stand-off and air weapons, which would undergird and drive a more focused and hard-nosed U.S.-led diplomatic process.” It was sent through the “dissent channel” at the State Department.

The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday the memo repeatedly calls for “targeted air strikes” against the Syrian government following the collapse of a ceasefire agreed upon earlier this year. Saudi proxies refused to honor the ceasefire and the Syrian Army responded by launching a number of offensives.

In addition to increased military intervention by the United States, the memo calls for more support for “moderate rebel” forces fighting against the Syrian government.

There are currently few if any moderate rebels in Syria. The Free Syrian Army and other so-called moderate rebels have functioned largely as a public relations front while the actual fighting is done by al-Nusra and other jihadi groups supported by Saudi Arabia.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has advocated military intervention in Syria.

“The best way to help Israel deal with Iran’s growing nuclear capability is to help the people of Syria overthrow the regime of Bashar Assad,” an email sent by Clinton states. “Unlike in Libya, a successful intervention in Syria would require substantial diplomatic and military leadership from the United States. Washington should start by expressing its willingness to work with regional allies like Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar to organize, train and arm Syrian rebel forces.”
