Western Politicians take Orders from their Saudi Paymasters on Syria

by

Joseph BH McMillan

The deputy Russian Prime Minister described the West as behaving like a ‘monkey with a hand-grenade’ in the Islamic world. He was referring to the impending Western attack on Syria. But he is overly generous to the West. A ‘monkey with a hand-grenade’ still possesses a degree of autonomy in its actions. Western politicians don’t. They don’t even have a foreign policy when it comes to the Middle East. Western politicians take their orders directly from their Saudi and Qatari paymasters.

The evidence of this is clear. In Egypt the West’s paymasters are divided – the Saudis support the coup, while the Qataris oppose it. So Western politicians have been getting contradictory instructions from their paymasters and so sit quivering on the fence. They can’t say there was a coup, but neither can they say there wasn’t.

In Libya the situation was different. The Saudis and Qataris gave the West clear instructions – bomb Libya – because the ‘rebels’ they sponsored were losing. And the West obeyed, effectively assisting the very terrorists we had been fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq, aided by Saudi-sponsored Chechen terrorists.

Now Western leaders have been given their instructions on Syria by their Saudi and Qatari paymasters – bomb Syria. And they are obeying without question, even in the face of overwhelming opposition by the Western public. Of course, the Saudis and Qataris don’t give a damn about Western public opinion. The paymasters have spoken, and their Western puppet politicians must obey. And so they shall!

And the excuse is the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government. I have not one shadow of doubt that the Syrian government had nothing to do with the chemical attack, and the reasons are glaringly obvious.

As any criminal investigator or lawyer will tell us, to find the criminal, look for the motive. Hard as we may look, the Syrians have no motive. But the Saudis and Qataris have plenty of motives. The terrorists they are sponsoring to overthrow the Syrian government are losing again, just as they did in Libya. That most unsavoury of characters, the Saudi ‘Intelligence’ Chief, Prince Bandar, admitted to Russian President Putin in a meeting on 2 August, 2013, that Saudi Arabia controlled the Chechen terrorist network and was using it in Syria, along with a mix of terrorists from around the Islamic world, including Al Qaeda.

And Bandar went even further. He effectively threatened Putin with Chechen terror attacks at the Winter Olympics if Putin did not support military intervention by the West at the UN.

However, apart from the clear evidence of motive such events provide for finding a way around the UN for Western military action, the remarkable thing about such a threat to the Winter Olympics, which will be attended by tens of thousands of Westerners, is the total absence of any condemnation of the Saudis from a single Western politician.

But Bandar’s threat not only demonstrates clear Saudi motive, it also provides the evidence that the Saudis are one of the very few nations on this planet that would have no compunction resorting to the vilest of methods to achieve their goals. If Western and Russian civilians at the Winter Olympics are of no concern to the likes of Bandar, I expect Syrian civilians are even further down the relevance scale. We should also remember that Bandar was the first foreign diplomat to visit Bush in the White House after 15 Saudi citizens attacked the US on 9/11. It was Bandar’s wife who sent one of the 9/11 attackers money leading up to 9/11. It was also Bandar that arranged for the only ‘civilian’ flight to be allowed to fly in US airspace following the 9/11 attacks – a ‘civilian’ flight full of Bin Ladens escaping to Saudi Arabia.

The Saudis have the motive, and they certainly have the lack of even the most basic humanity, to instigate a chemical attack. The Wikileaks documents provide further evidence of Saudi sponsorship of terror. A US intelligence assessment specifically identified Saudi Arabia as the world’s number one sponsor of terror. But still Western politicians take their instructions from the likes of Saudi Arabia and Qatar without question, and with utter contempt for the opinion of their own electorates.

But that leads to an even more disturbing question. It is common knowledge that US, British and French ‘agents’ are ‘training’ Syrian ‘rebels’ (terrorists) in Jordan and Saudi Arabia, and no doubt in Qatar. And like Western politicians, these ‘agents’ will be taking their instructions from their Saudi and Qatari paymasters. So the ‘rebels’ will certainly have had ready access to the expertise necessary to launch a chemical attack, and one that could, at least to some extent, be blamed on Syrian forces. Yet, it would be unlikely that Western ‘agents’ would assist or participate in such actions without some level of political approval. However, the possibility that Western personnel, with direct or indirect political approval, would instigate a chemical attack to give Western governments an excuse to launch military action against Syria for the benefit of their Saudi and Qatari paymasters, however remote that possibility may be, must be something that the Western public insist be thoroughly investigated. And any Western politician found to have had even the remotest knowledge or involvement in such an atrocity should face the full extent of punishment as a war criminal. The kind faced by Saddam Hussein.

So, an objective appraisal of the evidence gives us this.

Elated by their ‘success’ in Libya, the Saudis and Qataris turned their attentions to Syria. They mobilised their extensive terrorist networks, including Chechens (Bandar to Putin – ‘We use them [the Chechen terrorists] in the face of the Syrian regime but they will have no role or influence in Syria’s political future).

The Saudis and Qataris went for an all-out offensive to overthrow the Syrian government and install a Saudi/Qatari sponsored puppet government. (Bandar to Putin – ‘Syria will be ruled by a moderate and democratic regime that will be directly sponsored by us.’)

But the terror campaign didn’t go as planned, and the Syrian government began to get the upper hand, so the Saudis and Qataris instructed their Western sponsored politicians to come to their aid. But Obama, concerned that the people of America didn’t want anything to do with Syria, and mindful of his own ‘legacy’, said that he would need either a UN resolution, or the Syrian’s crossing a ‘red line’ by using chemical weapons. So Bandar was dispatched to see Putin with a list of bribes and threats. (Bandar to Putin – ‘I have spoken with the Americans before the visit, and they pledged to commit to any understandings that we may reach, especially if we agree on the approach to the Syrian issue.’ NOTE: The Americans will ‘commit to ANY understandings …’ NOT, this is the US position, or policy. The US will simply commit to what the Saudis decide.)

Then there’s Bandar’s threat to Putin about the Chechens terrorizing the Olympics – ‘The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us, and they will not move in the Syrian territory’s direction [or by implication, the Winter Olympics] without coordinating with us.’ Why on earth is the West planning to attack Syria? We should attack Saudi Arabia – without delay, to rid the earth of the scourge of these unconscionable sponsors of terror and death around the world.

But, not being in the Saudi pocket like Western politicians, Putin responds with this – ‘We know that you have supported the Chechen terrorist groups for a decade. And that support, which you have frankly talked about just now, is completely incompatible with the common objectives of fighting global terrorism that you mentioned.’

Bandar thus concluded that ‘there is no escape from the military option, because it is the only currently available choice given that the political settlement ended in stalemate.

So Bandar reported back to Saudi puppet ‘leaders’ in the West that the Russians could not be bribed, and neither could they be threatened. Plan ‘B’ had to be implemented. Syria had to be seen to have crossed Obama’s ‘red line’.

Now that is evidence, incontrovertible evidence, that those with the motive to instigate a chemical attack are the Saudis, not the Syrians. It gives their political ‘henchmen’ in the West the political cover to go their aid in Syria to install a ‘regime that will be directly sponsored by us.
