Britain, and other members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), have been dragged into the ongoing wars in the Middle East by America and Israel, the vice president of the Traditional Britain Group, Gregory Lauder-Frost, has said.
Writing in an article published on the Traditional Britain Group website titled, “History of the Middle East in two decades. Time to exit NATO,” Lauder-Frost provided an accurate summary of the events since the First Gulf War of 1991, through to the present day.
Lauder-Frost—who was the former Chairman of the Conservative Monday Club’s influential Foreign Affairs Committee and was also the Club’s Political Secretary, starts off by accurately exposing the real causes of the 1991 invasion of Kuwait by Saddam Hussein—and the military reaction from US President George H.W. Bush which it evoked:
President of Iraq announces he loathes Israel and also decides to recover Kuwait, which had been part of Iraq anyway until detached for a local band of Bedouin chiefs.
USA enters the scene, as its proxy state of Israel (or is that the other way around?) is “threatened” and likewise its other proxy state, Saudi Arabia feels “threatened.”
USA now drags its proxy military arm, NATO, into Gulf Wars. This is nowhere near the North Atlantic. Iraq gets kicked out of Kuwait. Lull in the wars.
He then went on to describe the build-up to the second Gulf War, correctly pointing out the morass of lies and deceit which preceded that completely illegal and immoral war:
USA now engages in an anti-Iraq propaganda war including “weapons of mass destruction” lies, gets its puppet NATO states on side (including Blair) and invades Iraq intent on “regime change.”
Iraq defeated. Entire government murdered by NATO after court hearings which make Nuremberg look fair.
NATO, having destabilised and utterly destroyed a secular country and its infrastructures, where Christians, Jews, and Muslims had lived side by side most satisfactorily for 2000 years, departs.
The next phase of the war was waged against the Syrian government, which, Lauder-Frost also accurately points out, was targeted only because of its opposition to Israel:
Phase Two. Syria. A peaceful secular state where Christians, Jews, and Muslims have lived side by side in harmony and protected by the state for 2000 years.
Syrian government has full international recognition and is even feted.
However, they don’t much like Israel either, and the USA decides that as the Syrian government has very friendly relations with their new bogeyman, Iran, which also loathes Israel, they must be eliminated.
However, US ground intervention in Iraq, which cost untold billions of dollars and thousands of American lives—not to mention the over one million Iraqis killed as a result—has made an invasion of Syria politically impossible, even in Jewish neocon-controlled America.
Thus, as Lauder-Frost so accurately describes, “After the Iraq mess, the USA does things by proxy this time.”
In order to do this, the US government gets “the Saudis to fund terrorists (who are then also externally armed) inside Syria who then start an insurgency and civil war.”
At the same time, he says, the “USA and their proxy NATO states” start a propaganda war (ably assisted by the BBC) against the government of Syria.
Suddenly it has become “the regime” and President Assad (a qualified doctor who worked for years in London) a “butcher” (said David Cameron).
To everyone’s great surprise, the Syrian government does not collapse, as have all the other Middle Eastern nations in which uprisings were supported by the US and the UK (such as Libya and Egypt).
This ability to fight back “against the terrorist insurgents” is immediately portrayed by the USA and NATO proxies as “shocking” and “barbaric,” even though, as Lauder-Frost points out, if a similar terrorist insurgency or civil war had broken out in Britain, the UK government would have had no hesitation in calling out the British army to physically suppress it.
Instead, he writes, Western states “now start saying how shocking it is that civilians are suffering and whole cities destroyed (forget about World War II) and how it is all the fault of the Syrian government,”—not that of the US and UK-supported terrorists who started the war in the first place, and who, by now include external elements and Al Qaeda.
The chaos and destruction—financed, armed, and supported by the US and UK governments—now allows for the emergence of a “new force of Islamic lunatics to appear on the scene: ISIS,” Lauder-Frost continues.
ISIS starts a march of death and destruction across Iraq and into Syria, while selling oil to the Turks (NATO country). . . .
Thousands of Islamic extremists from inside Europe (where they should never have been permitted to reside) and other places go to Syria to join these fanatics who are now murdering en masse.”
Western leaders continue to say it is all the fault of the Syrian ‘regime’ and start moaning about the refugee crisis.
As the “rebels” are now so obviously led by ISIS, and the “moderate rebels” who the US and UK claimed were the “real opposition” have now mysteriously vanished, NATO now feels obliged to pretend that it is intervening against ISIS—even though it still officially wants the Syrian government to fall.
As Lauder-Frost points out:
Meanwhile NATO forces start bombing indiscriminately what they say are ISIS targets. Sheds, a few trucks etc. Kill a few lunatics. Somehow fail to spot mile long oil convoys.
Now, the Russian government “agrees to requests from the legal Syrian Government for assistance.” To this end, Lauder-Frost says, the Russians start “bombing ISIS oil convoys and huge ammunition depots as well as known established ISIS and terrorist strongholds,” adding that:
USA/NATO call Russians “aggressors” and say their bombings are causing a refugee crisis. (Yes, you couldn’t make this up!)
Finally, he writes, the Western governments “hold pretend peace meetings in Switzerland without inviting the Syrian government. Continues to talk about regime change. Why is the United Kingdom part of this crackpot NATO organisation and a lapdog for the USA and their endless wars?”
* An article by Peter Osborne in the Daily Mail has confirmed that the “Free Syrian Army” which was supposedly the “moderate” rebels supported by the US and UK governments, was in fact exactly the same as ISIS all along.
As Osborne writes:
Downstairs, in what had been the Grand Salon, another of the hotel’s new guests told me her harrowing story.
Fighters from the Free Syrian Army—the rebel faction hailed by the British government as ‘moderate’—took over her village three years ago. They forced her to wear black, veil her face, and stay at home.
