Condemn NATO intrigue and conspiracy against Syria!

Submitted by vivek on Wed, 16/05/2012 - 23:30

The latest plans of the US imperialists and their allies to overthrow the Assad government in Syria and achieve “regime change” there are unfolding.  For more than one year, the US has been openly inciting, funding and backing opposition elements in Syria with the single aim of kicking out the Assad government, which it sees as an obstacle to its plans to establish its complete domination in West Asia and to attack Iran.  The result has been terrible bloodshed and destruction for the people of Syria.  At the same time US-led sanctions are causing severe economic difficulties for the population there.

Under pressure from world opinion and because of the opposition of Russia, China and other countries in the United Nations, the US and its allies were forced to agree to an UN-sponsored ceasefire plan.  However, they have been doing their best to try and scuttle a ceasefire even before it has had a chance.  They are doing this by shrill one-sided propaganda about the Assad government violating the ceasefire, and by continuing to arm its opponents.  This was made clear when, in the last week of April, the government of Lebanon intercepted and confiscated consignments of arms and ammunition that were being sent by sea to the Syrian rebels.  The Russian Foreign Minister openly said, “There are those who want Kofi Annan's plan [ceasefire] to fail. ... They are doing this by delivering arms to the Syrian opposition and stimulating the activity of rebels, who continue to attack both government facilities, and … civilian facilities on a daily basis.”

NATO foreign ministers meeting in Brussels in April discussed how alleged ceasefire violations by the Syrian government could be used to justify some form of military intervention.  The government of Turkey has been encouraged to complain about shelling from across its border with Syria, and to demand that NATO come to its “defence”.  NATO functionaries have been planning how to use this excuse to push across the border into Syria from Turkey in the name of creating a “buffer zone” within Syrian territory that would be under the occupation of NATO forces.  This “buffer zone” would then be the bridgehead to launch a full-scale military invasion of Syria at some point.

The latest developments show that the US and NATO are dead against any peaceful solution to the conflict within Syria.  They are only interested in achieving the overthrow of the Assad government and the installation of a new regime that will follow their dictate, as they have done in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.  International law, including the rules upholding the sanctity of the sovereignty of countries, as well as international organisations like the UN, are only instruments to be used as and when it suits their interests.

The Indian working class and people denounce the plans of the US imperialists and NATO with regard to Syria.  The people of Syria must be allowed to sort out their affairs in peace and free of any form of external intervention.  Such intervention, even if it comes couched under the name of “Friends of Syria”, will only mean the kiss of death for the Syrian people and their independence.
