US military intervention in Syria can lead to WWIII: Analyst



Press TV

Any US military intervention in Syria will merely exacerbate the crisis in the Arab country and put the globe on the brink of another world war, a political analyst tells Press TV.

“US military involvement [in Syria] obviously would not resolve the crisis. It would just make it worse as always happens when the US military gets involved in parts of the world where it has no business being,” said Kevin Barrett in a Saturday interview with Press TV.

“This is a dangerous move because we’re really on the edge of a potential World War III in Syria. The region is being destabilized more and more at every moment,” he pointed out.

On Friday, US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said that the Pentagon was positioning military forces as part of “contingency options” provided to US President Barack Obama regarding Syria.

Hagel’s remarks have been interpreted as a tacit suggestion that the US may be preparing for a military attack on Syria.

Also on Friday, some American military officials said that Washington was considering military options against Syria over the allegations of chemical weapons use by the Syrian government.

Barrett, noted that pressures by the hard-line Israeli lobby are also behind such hawkish US posturing.

On Wednesday, the militants operating in Syria claimed that around 1,300 people were killed in a government chemical attack on militant strongholds in the Damascus suburbs of Ain Tarma, Zamalka and Jobar.

But the Syrian Army strongly rejected any role in the chemical attack, saying the accusations were fabricated to distract a visiting team of the UN chemical weapons experts and to cover up militants’ losses.

The Syrian government later announced that the chemical attack had actually been carried out by the militants themselves as a false flag operation.

The announcement by Syria echoed earlier declarations by Russia, which said it had “new evidence” that the chemical attack in the Damascus suburbs were of a “provocative nature.” Iran has also said, “There are documents [showing] terrorist groups are behind this attack.”

Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since 2011.

A very large number of the militants operating inside Syria are reportedly foreign nationals.

According to reports, the West and its regional allies – especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey – are supporting the militants inside Syria.

  1. probably true but this has been true since 9-11. usa acts in libya, egypt and now syria (i would believe russia before the usa re any so called chem weapons attacks. recall iraq?) have incrementally destabilized the region toward a world war, there is no doubt. a tipping point will come where russia, china and iran will act to defend their interests if not their territory. the usa and israel know this, so it is almost as if we are watching a foregone conclusion interms of a usa-israel provoked regional mid east war, which if history is any guide, cannot help but lead to a world war, unless the usa people end this madness by shutting down their government, or God intervenes; or perhaps both.. 1 commenter above pointed out the world economy is set for a re-boot. probably so, and has been discussed by insiders and academic economists at least since 2000. i ran for 2008 usa house as a CT green and posed that very question to the race winner, now CT usa senator chris murphy, in TV debate, and told him he needed to read up on the so called ‘bretton woods 2’ plan(s) in the ec literature even then, where usa china debt would be leveraged to try to re-boot the world ec to favor the west once again. murphy had no idea what i meant. and he is now a senator. such is the ignorance and failure of our polity and candidates today. makes one wonder if they really did go to college at least.

  2. That would make Bibi very happy. They never get hit have you noticed???? Don’t tell me it is superion intalligence they are lots of places they could hit. But this war would be WWIII and last for us. If Putin wants war and convince China and Iran and etc they can win, hate to say we will have a small chance and that is why Obama is carefull those idiot war neo con are just that IDIOTS. kept free by the blood of better human being who deserve to live more that they do.

  3. Mike Rivero of WhatRellyHappened made that same comment on the opening of his show, within 2 hours… Boom! There is was freshly posted. However as Mike continued he said, “This will perhaps be later shown to be false in an effort to discredit Snowden in a form of damage control.”

    That had barely been said and while the ink was drying another revelation came that the whole of the U.N. was bugged. Naming which offices etc. Now its reported that even the IAEA was in someway also bugged.

    One of the best videos this year came from ‘brother Nathanael entitled, “NSA Jewish Spymasters” It is clear why those who seem to be in power seem to be so powerless. This would appear to suggest that all are being blackmailed so their Zionist agenda goes forth.

    Its like wondering if someone would try to stop the UN inspectors in Syria the “Proxy War” then to hear they came under sniper fire. The whole world or game is rigged. Evil prevails because the people are powerless as others will sell their souls our yours to pad their wallets.

  4. Love is a neutral emotion. It is a natural phenomenon.

    In an atom, you have just four forces, the proton, the electron, neutron and a whole lot of empty space. The universe, as well as our bodies are mostly empty space.

    I submit this empty space is neutral. It does not condemn a proton as good or evil. It does not judge the electron as being weak. This is duality which is a requirement of our physical illusion.

    From a neutral state, we can effect the illusion that surrounds us. We can make mountains disappear by saying “be gone” and dispersing the energy field of the atoms within that mountain.

    We are a lot more than a DC Battery. We have the power to shape our illusion of reality, both in physical and “spiritual” terms.

    • This must be a note of an embicile!

      We all know that molecules, DNA particles: in atomic particles, sub atomics, and even lipids have the same actions and accommodtaions in our bones and brains. This is a manifestation of a life, which actually is not very defficult to “understand”, where one must not really have to become scientific in order to hate what he is, or what God is!

      And, yes! There is “One Population” in the world today that has the most to say and to decide: THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!! A mob rule society, which has nothing to do with the “understanding” of human concept in life, for if this population did, there would be no more bombings, or no bombings at all, just for the PROFIT in OIL!!!


    • @Bernadette – I understand your point of view; I agree with you about the imperialistic model driven by big businesses and ideologues. But, I will say that 90 percent of the American population hate wars because these wars have been fought by kids belonging to the middle and poor classes. Conversely, the American people must share the blame because they do not monitor the political system. The majority of the American people don’t know the meaning of the word “propaganda”. They subcontracted the democratic system to the three branches of our government. In fact, we care and hate tragedies, destruction, and chaos that a group of Evils has created all around the world. In conclusion, the majority of American people would like to see a Scandinavian model implemented in America. Today and sadly, the only entity that can remove these tumors and implement the Scandinavian model is the ARMED FORCES.

  5. Those who drafted the plan ten years ago to invade Iraq, divide Syria and Libya in several states, and to force a regime change in Iran will always create causes and excuses to implement their Evil’s goal. The purpose is to promote Israel as the only superpower in the Middle East. Lately, I am hearing a soft tone of condemnation from the Russians regarding an unlawful attack from the USA against Syria. I am suspicious that a deal was made with the Russian to let the USA attack Syria. Furthermore, Gordon wrote an article called “Armageddon” a month ago. He mentioned indirectly a fiction-deal between the Saudis and Russians brokered by the Zionist regime. I hope that I am wrong, but Putin won’t miss an exceptional deal that may help Russia. Conversely, Iran is going to be the only real obstacle for NATO, Israel, and Gulf countries because it is all about Iran’s survival. In fact, Neocons’ arrogance and stupidity have offered Iraq to Iran on a tray. But, we shouldn’t forget that Neocons had profited financially with the Iraq’s invasion. The Neocons are ideologues, but the addiction to money has always superseded their ideology. Conversely, I believe that these evils are going to create an apocalypse in the region. Unfortunately, this apocalypse will trigger an economic disaster in this country. It will be too late for American to react and American people can only blame themselves for their lack of involvement in protecting this country against parasites.

  6. You don’t need to be a genius to work out that we have been led (or pushed) to the brink of a global catastrophe with this expensive and highly contrived ‘Syrian crisis’.

    It could happen now at any moment. If Russia, China and others used the same criminal ‘pre-emptive strike’ philosophy as the zionist occupied western ‘nations’ – it would already have happened. They know that Syria is just the next target on a long list of places to be degraded and destroyed by the bankster cabal zionists.

    The west needs to quickly demonstrate that it can free itself from the utterly evil grip of the eternal zionist war mongerers – or they will deliberately lead us into the Apocalypse.

    Ahem …. it is now time for the couch potatoes to turn OFF the TV and take notice of this life threatening scenario. This is real.

  7. The foreign elements in Syria, the Wahabi salafist jet-set jihadis, obviously care NOTHING about the Syrian people…they’re there for pseudo-religious/ideological reasons and will do WHATEVER it takes to get the Western assistance ( that the terrorists rcvd in Libya )…that they need to achieve “victory”….
