US Plan B for Syria is Plan A
by Stephen Lendman
Obama wants Assad’s government forcefully toppled, using ISIS and other terrorists fighters as imperial foot soldiers.
Sham peace talks are cover, resumed today after pausing for two weeks, going nowhere. Washington knows Syrians won’t tolerate surrendering their sovereignty to a foreign power. 
They reject US-led Western interference in their internal affairs. Convincing them militarily is Washington’s Plan B – also known as Plan A, an escalated version with heavier weapons, giving ISIS and other imported death squads greater support to counter Russia, claiming cold-blooded killers are “moderate rebels.” 
Evil lunatics run America, endless wars of aggression their core strategy, wanting all independent governments replaced by puppet regimes they control – millions of lost lives, vast destruction, unspeakable human misery and the greatest refugee crisis since WW II considered small prices to pay.
Washington and its rogue allies are assessing what type enhanced weapons to train terrorists to use – including greater numbers of man-portable air-defense systems (MANPADS) and others able to down warplanes.
ISIS and other terrorist groups already have small numbers of these weapons, supplied by CIA elements and Pentagon contractors training them.
According to an unnamed senior Obama administration official, “(i)f the ceasefire collapses, if the negotiations don’t go anywhere, and we’re back to full throttle civil (sic) war, all bets will be off.”
“The outside patrons will double and triple down, throwing everything they can into Syria, including much more lethal weaponry.”
Ceasefire never took hold as claimed. Peace talks are farcical by any standard going nowhere. Endless war will continue as long as Washington and its rogue allies keep supporting terrorists called “moderate rebels.”
Russia may have to rethink its drawdown and ramp up its presence to former or greater strength to counter Washington’s evil scheme.
