Michel Chossudovsky, a prominent analyst and director of the Centre for Research on Globalization, says Western powers are after a war of aggression in Syria by supporting and arming insurgents and terrorists, Press TV reports.
"It is well-understood that this is not a civil war; this is a war of aggression where forces of some NATO countries have entered the country; I am talking about elite SAS, MI6, US CIA, French and American forces, forces from Saudi Arabia and Qatar, mercenaries... the aggressors are the NATO countries and the FSA [the so-called Free Syrian Army] terrorists are their foot soldiers," Michel Chossudovsky said in an interview with Press TV on Wednesday.
He went on to say that there is a breakdown of UN diplomacy because "the Secretary General (Ban Ki-moon) is in fact blaming the victims in the name of the aggressors."
"He is blaming the victims in the name of the aggressors; it is well-documented that these atrocities directed against the Syrian people have been committed by FSA mercenaries and terrorists and these terrorists are supported by the Western military alliance," the Canadian analyst noted.
Chossudovsky further argued that the underlying objective of the actions of the Western powers in Syria is to "destroy the Syrian nation."
"What is happening now is a whole series of acts of intimidation, of threats, not to mention economic sanctions. The underlying objective is to destroy a nation; it is to kill a nation, to destabilize its economy, to trigger a humanitarian crisis and then send in the NGOs to pick up the pieces and so on and so forth or send in NATO," he explained.
Many people, including large numbers of security forces, have been killed in the turmoil that began in Syria in March 2011.
Damascus says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are the driving force behind the unrest and deadly violence, but the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings.
The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the armed militants are foreign nationals.

I will never understand why Russia and China are sitting by and allowing this nonsense to happen to this day, yes they vetoed at the UN 3 times, which was great but that's not enough, they need to threaten the countries involved to stop funding and arming these terrorists.
There have been over 10 bombings in Syria just this month, I cannot watch this shit anymore, I'm sick of the killing, I'm sick of the massacres carried out by these NATO/Saudi/Israeli/Turkish Salafi Islamist Savages.
The corrupt neoCon liars who run Canada did not do this on their own. Either the prompt came from Israel to pressure Obama to attack iran sooner than he would like or from the US as part of the BS about 'forced to do it'.
