US readies military attacks on Syria

This article implies that we may see the US directly involved in the war in Syria. Recently the rebels suffered a retreat. That is what happened in Libya before the US and NATO sent in planes to bomb the Libyan army and destroy its fighting capabilities so the phoney rebels could win. The same may now soon happen in Syria. The US does not like to lose a proxy war. And intervention is the only way to prop up the sagging Fee Syrian Army, which is nothing more than an army of stooges for Turkey and NATO.  -សតិវ អតុ

The U.S. will keep pressure on the Syrian regime and plans stronger cooperation with Turkey on how to respond to the 17-month-old conflict as it deteriorates, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said.
The U.S. and Turkey will create a working group to deal with the impact of refugees from Syria, terrorism and the potential threat of chemical weapons, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said at a joint press conference with Clinton in Istanbul today. Clinton is in the country to hold talks with Turkish President Abdullah Gul, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Syrian opposition groups.
The Obama administration yesterday announced new sanctions on Assad’s regime to hasten the end of the conflict that’s left more than 21,000 people dead and displaced another 1.5 million. The U.S. is shifting its strategy on Syria from diplomacy through the United Nations to one that’s focusing on supporting opposition groups seeking to topple Assad. The U.S. may impose a “no-fly zone” over Syria and take “more aggressive action” against the regime, former U.S. Defense Secretary William Cohen said yesterday.
“The number of refugees will keep increasing,” Clinton said, according to comments broadcast on Turkish television and translated into the local language. “No one can predict when this regime will end. But the Syrian people should take measures to keep their unity, rebuild their economy and secure all dangerous weapons, including chemical weapons.”
