Intervention In Syria Is a Build Up To WAR with IRAN – Says Ex-US Chief of Staff [video]

Posted by on December 9, 2012 in Politics with 1 Comment

The Netherlands is mobilizing two Patriot missile batteries to send to Turkey, joining German and American units. They’re to guard against a possible attack from Syria, one that Lawrence Wilkerson, the former Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell, says will never come.  Said Wilkerson:

“I would be highly skeptical of any intelligence rendered by the $140+ Billion dollar  U.S. intelligence community as to weapons of mass destruction in possesion of another country… We have known for years that Syria has chemical weapons stockpiles…But, the fact President Assad would be moving them around and preparing them for use against his own citizens within his own territory, I frankly find preposterous… Turkey needs no protection by us… It would be utterly stupid for Asssad to attack Turkey… So, why are we doing these things that look like they are not connected to reality unless reality is that we are preparing the ground to intervene in Syria?”

Regarding the implications if the U.S. does intervene in Syria, Wilkerson said:

“I think this will be even worse than Iraq.  I think also that it would be, again, a back door, as it were, into Iran – which as you well know is the real threat that we’ve been putting out there for years now. And, I think that we are looking at Syria and Iran as being a combination that we would then take on.”
