The CIA will decide Syria’s future, in alliance with Al Qaeda, Israel, and Saudi Arabia.

Al Qaeda was created by the American CIA in the 1980s. They used to be the “good guys”. Then, after 2001, we were expected to regard Al Qaeda as the “bad guys”. However, as of 2013, Al Qaeda have become the “good guys” again, American government and the CIA regard them as allies, and we may yet come to a point where the American military will be forced to cooperate and provide air support to the Al Qaeda (Nushra front) in Syria. Hey, they just massacred at least 45 Christians in a Syrian town, but who cares, they are our allies now.

Patriarch Twal: Attack Syria on What Authority?

In a break from his more usual diplomatic style, the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, Fouad Twal, has lambasted the proposed policy of the U.S. government and its allies to launch air strikes against Syria.
In a forceful statement, released Wednesday, he questions the authority of these states to launch an attack, wonders who appointed them to be “policemen of democracy”, and warns of the risk of more civilian casualties.

Catholic Patriarch of Syria: U.S. Attack on Syria Would Be ‘Criminal Act’

(CNSNews.com) – Were the Obama administration to launch an attack on Syria, as President Obama has said he intends to do, it would be “a criminal act, which will only reap more victims,” said Gregory III, the leader of the Greek Catholic Church in Syria and Lebanon.

“We must listen to the Pope’s appeal for peace in Syria,” said Patriarch Gregory III. “If Western countries want to create true democracy then they must build it on reconciliation, through dialogue between Christians and Muslims, not with weapons. This attack being planned by the United States is a criminal act, which will only reap more victims, in addition to the tens of thousands of these two years of war. This will destroy the Arab world’s trust in the West.”

Patriarch Rai: “the hypocritical goal” of the war in Syria:

Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Bechara Rai -

“You are uprooting a people; it destroys the Christian-Muslim civilization built over thirteen or fourteen centuries of coexistence. This is actually the purpose of this hypocritical war: empty the Middle East of its civilization and maintain a permanent state of war for political and economic purposes. We attach great importance to partnership with our fellow Muslims. We have built a valuable common civilization we care about ".

And Wahhabist Saudi Arabia is now openly talking about acquiring nuclear weapons from Pakistan. Perhaps it’s time for Vladimir Putin to let the Saudis and there American allies know that this represents a game changer and will not be tolerated.

If Iran goes nuclear, Saudi Arabia will be compelled to do the same.
