Rex Tillerson: U.S. organizing coalition to remove Assad (politically?)

(Many are reporting on this as a sign that Tillerson and the Duke of Orange are going to attack Syria. That’s NOT what he says. The “coalition” to force “regime change” in the country has been “organizing” since a couple months before the first color revolution protests took place over 6 years ago. Back then the “coalition” was the Brits, U.S., Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. So that doesn’t mean anything. But look at what he says: first they have to defeat their destablization team known as “ISIS”, then they have to “stabilize the country” which means bust off part of it for Greater Kurdistan and THEN and only THEN… use a “political process” to eventually get Assad to leave the country. That’s a hell of a lot different than what some websites are claiming to mean they are ready to pull a Libya on Syria. And yes, the process is already “underway”. It has been for 6 years.)

by the Washington Examiner

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Thursday that steps are “underway” to organize an “international community effort” to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad, a major policy shift triggered by the latest chemical weapons attack in the country’s ongoing civil war.

“With the acts that he has taken, it would seem that there would be no rule for him to govern the Syrian people,” Tillerson told reporters. “The process by which Assad would leave is something that I think requires and international community effort, both to first defeat ISIS within Syria, to stabilize the Syrian country to avoid further civil war, and then to work collectively with our partners around the world through a political process that would lead to Assad leaving.”

Tillerson added that “those steps are underway” already…

  1. I doubt that anything has really changed. I think the Empire’s main priority remains the “defeat of ISIS” (i.e. the creation of Barzani-stan). The Empire and its toadies will use the alleged “gas attack” to legitimize all the Empire’s genocides in the Middle East, and to justify permanent troops in Barzani-stan. (“They are protecting Syrian babies from another gas attack.”) When Trump asks his superiors for his orders, the Deep State will tell him, “Carpet-bombing Syria right now could complicate the project. Go threaten North Korea while we continue to work.” Meanwhile “progressive” blogs like Counterpunch and Alternet will continue to become more neoliberal with each passing day.

    • Trump is never going to willingly launch cruise missiles that could end up killing Russian soldiers in this climate. And he certainly isn’t going to risk shooting down a Russian plane or two. Not by choice anyway. But that leaves the crazies in the Deep State and the Pentagon who will do anything at this point to keep folks from focusing on what Susan Rice and Podesta did during the campaign and just afterwards. Will they make a call like that? In a heart beat and that is what worries me.

      • Not to worry, dude. They’ve got a 36 year-old real estate agent running the Middle East. Also, ol’ Ricky Perry ain’t just in charge of the nukes…now he done got called up to the NSC. What could possibly go wrong?

  2. ARE YOU A SICK TROLL? “The Sun” (owned by Rupert Murdoch) is a semi-pornographic U.K. tabloid, and is the biggest selling “newspaper” in the U.K. Every day, trains and subway cars are packed with zombies whose noses are buried in “The Sun.” There are no human faces. There are only 1.6 million little red boxes (“The Sun” logo). I have seen this personally. Anyway “The Sun” says that if you question the Empire’s lies about the alleged “gas attack,” then you are a “sick troll,” a “white supremacist,” and a “far-right conspiracy theorist” who “peddles vile claims” and a “crackpot theory.” These “sick trolls” include former presidential hopeful Ron Paul.

  3. After dropping bombs on Syria – I’m really missing an appropriate name for President Trump. President Peace Prize has already been used.
    So did we get an extra free 2 months from Trump bombing Syria opposed to if Hillary would have assumed office on Jan 20th?
