Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Syria: US Humanitarian Rescue Program aka Economic Imperialism

While selective 'humanitarian interventions' is a well-known western political style, the recent protests in Turkey demonstrate that western countries' appetite to exploit any country's misfortunes to its advantage is insatiable. The Turkish government however has itself to blame for providing such an opportunity in the first place. - See more at: http://www.iviews.com/Articles/articles.asp?ref=IV1307-5479#sthash.aKGGzPEo.dpuf

The term “equivalent of the Marshall Plan” is being employed by some in the White House and Pentagon this month to describe a proposed large-scale “humanitarian rescue program” being prepared for Syria, according to some Western diplomats based in Lebanon.

However, the 1948 Marshall Plan (officially the European Recovery Program or ERP) was an American program to aid Europe, through which the United States provided $13 billion, in today’s monetary terms, approximately $100 billion of economic support, to help rebuild European economies devastated by war.
The Syria project amounts to 19th century economic imperialism as a means to achieve control of Syria by hijacking its economy while shielding Israel from the rising tide of protests in this region, as armed groups across the spectrum are beginning to focus on directly confronting the Zionist theft and continuing occupation of Palestine.  Read more...

The moment of truth may arrive relatively soon. The administration of US President Barack clearly hopes that the rebels can "do the job" on their own, but this hope is becoming increasingly unrealistic. There are many additional obstacles to the Syrian army's progress in Homs province, and more still on the road to Aleppo, [1] but if the current trend continues, it may only be a matter of a couple of months before US and its allies will face a Gaddafi in Benghazi moment: a situation similar to that right prior to the intervention in Libya two years ago, when former Libyan dictator Muammar al-Gaddafi was threatening to reconquer his country's eastern center Benghazi.

Obama and the US stand much to lose if his Syria policy collapses and Assad recaptures Northern Syria. With so much political capital invested in the demand for Assad to leave power, Obama would face a serious backlash both at home and abroad. Syria's fate will have a major impact on many major strategic issues ranging from the Iranian nuclear calculations to the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations to Russia's behavior to global energy competition-and will reverberate correspondingly in domestic politics.

True, intervention is risky, both politically and militarily (given that Syria's patron Russia has equipped it with cutting-edge military technology), and could cost up to US$1 billion a month. [2] At a time when major American cities are going bankrupt and American society is suffering war fatigue, another unpredictable Middle Eastern military adventure is a dangerous gamble.
The Pentagon has provided Congress with the first list of detailed options for military intervention in Syria, the New York Times reported on Tuesday. The scenarios were presented in a letter by chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, and enumerate that strikes on Syrian military targets will costs billions of dollars.
As reported in the New York Times, Dempsey wrote that "long-range strikes on the Syrian government’s military targets would require 'hundreds of aircraft, ships, submarines and other enablers'” and cost 'in the billions.'

This is the first time that the Pentagon has explicitly laid out the challenges facing the U.S. in its efforts at intervening in the two-year long Syrian civil war. They reflect General Dempsey's acknowledgement that Syrian President Bashar Assad is not necessarily going to be ousted anytime soon.
