U.S. supports al-Qaeda in Syria

US indirectly supports al-Qaeda in Syria: Franklin Lamb

Press TV has conducted an interview with Franklin Lamb, international lawyer, about French paper Le Figaro saying after Saudi Arabia, the US is second in line to lead al-Qaeda forces fighting against the Syrian government.

What follows is an approximate transcription of the interview.

Press TV: Let’s jump right in. Give us your opinion on the revelations by the French newspaper. 

Lamb: Well I think they are credible. I think they are widely believed and have been over the past nearly one year as more and more similar reports and evidences surface. 

So I think that even if we accept that Turkey and Qatar and Saudi Arabia, and I think we must, are overtly supporting al-Qaeda and the terrorist groups, I think the West is doing it indirectly maybe sub-rosa, maybe not totally comfortable with it but the combination of both forces means that the al-Qaeda has enormous fire power and enormous encouragement to expand its operations because of the funding from the West and the [Persian] Gulf.

Press TV: And how do you perceive the level and the extent of the involvement of those regional parties as revealed by Le Figaro, as you mentioned we have got Qatar, Turkey, of course Saudi Arabia and even former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s name has come up? 

Lamb: Well I think in an operation like this if they are in for an inch, they are in for a mile. There is no such thing as a penny operation here it is going to be substantial and we see that consistently. 

Remember Libya; it was going to be a little operation. That was an all-out war. So I think history teaches us very clearly that they are going to have massive, massive arms in order to “achieve their victory”. 

So I think it is going to increase unless a stop is put to it.

I am working for the Belgian human rights association 'Werkgroep Morkhoven' which revealed the Zandvoort childporn case (88.539 victims). The case was covered up by the authorities. During the past years I have been really shocked by the way the rich countries of the western empire want to rule the world. One of my blogs: «Latest News Syria» (WordPress)/ Je travaille pour le 'Werkgroep Morkhoven', un groupe d'action qui a révélé le réseau pornographique d'enfants 'Zandvoort' (88.539 victims). Cette affaire a été couverte par les autorités. Au cours des dernières années, j'ai été vraiment choqué par la façon dont l'Occident et les pays riches veulent gouverner le monde. Un de mes blogs: «Latest News Syria» (WordPress)/ Ik werk voor de Werkgroep Morkhoven die destijds de kinderpornozaak Zandvoort onthulde (88.539 slachtoffers). Deze zaak werd door de overheid op een misdadige manier toegedekt. Gedurende de voorbije jaren was ik werkelijke geschokt door de manier waarop het rijke westen de wereld wil overheersen.

    If US fought against terrorism, it would support Assad

    If the US wanted to fight against terrorism, they would support the secular regime of President Assad in Syria, not Al-Qaeda, investigative journalist Neil Clark told RT.

    RT: How much of the turmoil and violence we’re currently seeing in Iraq and Afghanistan can be directly blamed on NATO interventions?

    Neil Clark: I think they can all be directly blamed on the NATO interventions. Because we think back at the so-called interventions, I mean they all were built as humanitarian ventures, weren’t they? It was NATO the benign, NATO the powers led by the United States. We are going to these countries to liberate the people from these wicked dictators like Saddam Hussein, Mullah Omar or Colonel Gaddafi. And in every instance of the so-called interventions the result has been death and destruction, it has been absolute chaos. In Iraq, a new study said that at least 500,000 people have been killed since the invasion and it could be even more. So, I think the consequences of these interventions have been anything but humanitarian. They’ve been war crimes. I think for people living in these countries it has been a nightmare what has happened since these NATO interventions. So, I think, yes, NATO is to blame.

    RT: Iraq is in the middle of its worst spike of violence in years…. Has the war in neighboring Syria further destabilized Iraq?

    NC: Absolutely. I think there is no coincidence. There has been a huge spike in violence in Iraq since the destabilization of Syria has taken place since 2011, of course, because the US has been helping the Islamist terrorists there to try to topple the secular, independently-minded government of President Assad. There is no coincidence that there has been a huge spike in violence in Syria and in Iraq at the same time. Al-Qaeda groups are going from Iraq to Syria, and from Syria to Iraq. The whole region is in turmoil because of US policies. And this is not a mistake. Well, it is a mistake to think it is a mistake, if you like, because whenever the Neo-Cons come on to talk about Iraq, and of course they are rarely ready to talk about Iraq, they always like to claim that Tony Blair and George W. Bush wanted well, but they made a few mistakes along the way. That is nonsense. The whole aim of the exercise was to destroy Iraq as a functioning country, to make sure it will never again be a threat to regional powers that the US backs in that region. The same is with Syria. I think this is all deliberate. What we are talking about is a deliberate destruction of independently-minded countries in that region.

    RT: Western powers claim to be fighting against international terrorism, and yet they’ve supported rebels in both Libya and Syria… How would you explain this apparent contradiction?

    NC: It is the biggest myth in the whole of international relations. The biggest myth is that the United States and its allies are implacably opposed to terrorist groups around the world, and particularly Al-Qaeda and Islamic terrorist groups. They are not. They all use Al-Qaeda and terrorist groups like them to help them to topple secular independently-minded governments like President Assad in Syria, Gaddafi in Libya and elsewhere, but they would also use the presence of Al-Qaeda groups in order to intervene in the countries where they want a regime change, like Mali, for example, or Afghanistan. So, in fact, the West uses Al-Qaeda, uses Islamic groups and is not implacably opposed to them. That is a great myth. Nobody has done more to boost the rise of Al-Qaeda in the last 20 years than the United States. That is a fact.

    RT: Al-Qaeda seems to be expanding its network and becoming more organized – is there any way to stop this trend?

    NC: It goes back to the US. I don’t think the US wants to stop it. Al-Qaeda serves a very useful purpose for American foreign policy and for Israel, too, and for Saudi Arabia. The fact is that if Al-Qaeda did not exist, it should have been invented. It serves for a lot of good purposes for the Unites States to push its agenda around the world. I think there is going to be a sea-change in the US. If the US was really serious about Al-Qaeda and wanted to deal with it, they would do, they would not be supporting Al-Qaeda in Syria, they would not be wanting a secular regime in Syria to be toppled. They would be actually supporting President Assad in Syria. They would not want a regime change in Libya, would they? So, to answer the question, I think that the future Al-Qaeda depends on the US. They US helped create Al-Qaeda, this Islamic terrorism. It is up to the US to stop it if it really wanted to. But their policy show that they are not really interested in doing it, I am afraid.

    ” Chuck Hagel announced during the weekend forum that the US has no intention of scaling back its military presence (read: arms sales) in the Persian Gulf despite the recent diplomatic detente with Iran. «Diplomacy, must be backed up with military power,» Hagel told delegates. The Pentagon chief also disclosed that the US was going ahead with the sale of 15,000 anti-tank missiles to Saudi Arabia worth $1 billion. These missiles will probably end up in the hands of Al Qaeda militants waging a war of terror against Syria for the Western-backed objective of regime change in that country. Ironically, and ludicrously, the British Foreign Secretary William Hague warned delegates that «extremists» operating in Syria (with the covert support of the US, Britain and Saudi Arabia among others) present a grave security threat to the Middle East region and Europe.” http://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2013/12/09/from-bahrain-to-ukraine-hail-western-salesmen-subversion-and-deception.html

    ” Benjamin de Rothschild, only son of the late Edmond de Rothschild, was a classic case of great expectations gone astray. Despite being groomed for greatness from a young age, as a teenager he skipped university and instead headed for Los Angeles with dreams of being a film producer. In LA he started taking drugs, and ended up on heroin. Meanwhile, he failed to make it into Hollywood’s charmed circle and bombed as a film-maker. ”
