2 – Restructure of international relations
BSSB.BE voltairenet.org 14.10.2015
While the Atlantist media seem to be falling sick, infected by a sudden attack of the anti-Russian fever, Thierry Meyssan interprets Moscow’s military action in Syria as the first step towards a complete revision of international relations.
Who is actively opposed to the Russian intervention ?
Since the beginning of the deployment of the Russian army – and there is as yet no discussion of the ground troops to be sent by the CSTO – a vast campaign of disinformation is being waged world-wide in order to accuse Russia of
supervising the Syrian Arab Army ;
bombing not the terrorist groups, but the civilian populations who are « hostile to the regime » ;
preparing a vast offensive with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.
War propaganda – the foundation and characteristic of the 4th generation war coordinated by NATO from February 2011 to March 2012 – progessively diminished. While for the space of a year, we were subjected on a daily basis to another imaginary story illustrating the supposed crimes of the « régime », the war propaganda limited itself to a few small groups – including the SOHR (Syrian Observatory for Human Rights), a London-based office of the Muslim Brotherhood which provides fodder for the Atlantist Press. As if by Pavlovian reflex, the Atlantist media visit the trough and then unthinkingly reproduce the most shameful lies.
First of all, they used a video taken by the Syrian Arab Army in which we hear men speaking Russian, in an attempt to make us believe that the Syrian fighters were commanded by Russian officers. In truth, the voices come from a walkie-talkie exchange between jihadists. Yuri Artamonov revealed this mistake by studying the sound track.
Then we were treated to a tsunami of images and videos about the civilian victims of Russian bombing raids. However, these images and videos were broadcast during the Duma debates, in other words, before the bombing took place.
Finally, the presence of Iranian fighters in Syria was presented as proof of the preparation of a vast counter-offensive by the « régime » and its allies against the « rebels ». In reality, after the fall of Palmyra, the Iranian forces had been authorised by the United States to become involved in Syria, but their number remains inferior to 5,000 men, which is absolutely insufficient to wage a counter-offensive over such a vast territory. As for the armed rebels, we have already pointed out that they are all linked either to al-Qaïda or Daesh.
We still need to prove who is organising this campaign of intoxication, and why. While it is impossible to find a solution to this question by considering Syria alone, the answer becomes clear once we place the theatre of war in the context of the re-establishment of international relations.
The Russian proposition to the Security Council
Russia has proposed that the Security Council spend October studying the best way of fighting terrorism, not only in Syria, but throughout North Africa and the Near East .
Evidently, Moscow and Washington have agreed to now begin applying the agreement they concluded in 2012 – and which Clinton, Petraeus, Allen, Feltman, Hollande and Fabius sabotaged – to share out the responsibilities in the Arab world. However, Russia has no wish to deploy on quicksand, and is asking for the terrain to be cleared first.
Let’s remember the basis of this agreement – the United States could withdraw part of their troops stationed in the region when Russia agrees to guarantee the safety of Israel .
Russia poses one condition to the new sharing of the world – the passage from an imperialist system, like the Yalta agreement, to a system based on international law in general, and the United Nations Charter in particular. It therefore condemns in advance « …interference in the internal affairs of sovereign states, the recourse to force without the authorisation of the Security Council, and the delivery of arms to extremist non-state groups ».
Let there be no mistake about it, this solution supposes the application of Security Council resolutions, including those concerning Israel, the implementation of the Arab Peace Initiative and the common Global Action Plan concerning the Iranian nuclear programme, the creation of control mechanisms for the respect by the states of the assembly for all of these texts, and finally, global opposition to the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Keep in mind
Despite the numerous controversies that oppose them – the deployement of the anti-missile shield, the overthrow of the régime in Ukraine, and the attempt to judge Vladimir Putin before an international Tribunal – the Kremlin believes it can help the Obama administration to realise the inefficiency of its policies and return to the realm of international law.
It is only on this condition that Russia is ready to share with the United States the responsibility for the security of North Africa and the Near East, including the security of Israel.
The Russian bombing raids are not directed against the allies of the United States, but constitute military assistance for President Obama who, for the last year, has not been obeyed by the anti-Daesh Coalition.
Russia hopes to bring the United States to the table at a regional peace conference aimed at applying les resolutions of the Security Council – including the withdrawal of Israel to its 1967 borders – the Arab Peace Initiative, and the Common Global Action Plan concerning the Iranian nuclear programme.
To definitively overcome Islamist terrorism, it is necessary to fight its cause – the materialist ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood.
