Arab league monitors find slaughter in Syria the work of foreign-backed subversives

A report by the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) based on a one month inquiry by 160 monitors failed, as Pepe Escobar reports in the Asia Times, to conclude that:
... the "evil" Bashar al-Assad government is indiscriminately, and unilaterally, killing its own people, and so regime change is in order.

So the report was either ignored (by Western corporate media) or mercilessly destroyed - by Arab media, virtually all of it financed by either the House of Saud or Qatar. It was not even discussed - because it was prevented by the GCC from being translated from Arabic into English and published in the Arab League's website.

Until it was leaked. Here it is, in full.

The report is adamant. There was no organized, lethal repression by the Syrian government against peaceful protesters. Instead, the report points to shady armed gangs as responsible for hundreds of deaths among Syrian civilians, and over one thousand among the Syrian army, using lethal tactics such as bombing of civilian buses, bombing of trains carrying diesel oil, bombing of police buses and bombing of bridges and pipelines.

... So the current "Arab-led drive to secure a peaceful end to the 10-month crackdown" in Syria at the UN is no less than a crude regime change drive. Usual suspects Washington, London and Paris have been forced to fall over themselves to assure the real international community this is not another mandate for NATO bombing - a la Libya. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton described it as "a path for a political transition that would preserve Syria's unity and institutions".

  1. Thank You For Finding and Re-Posting This.

    At least some of the GCC monitors have told the truth about what they witnessed.

    See "IRAN IS NOT OUR ENEMY" too!

    - "Irani Friend"

  2. .." foreign intervention .. distorts the natural mechanisms which exist inside any country for resolving a conflict of this kind"

    That is the precise point of "noble causes" for foreign interventions - they claim and prove that exactly THAT KIND of internal conflict (killing its own citizens) should not be resolved by the country itself.
    So it all depends not just on factual conflict, but on presenting it as of being of SPECIAL kind - which warrants the intervention.
