Revolutionaries from Brazil comment on the situation in Syria

The following are excerpts from the following statement;

Statement of the Revolutionary Front in Defence of the People’s Rights, RFDPR, Brasil, on the present situation in Syria
“The combat to imperialism and reaction without the inseparable combat to opportunism is nothing but empty phraseology”.
Lenin: “Imperialism and the splitting of socialism”.
The nation of Syria has been suffering a bloody imperialist plundering war in the shape of  a civil war. Assad’s armed forces and the so-called free army of Syria are the contestants of this inter-imperialist dispute for the Syrian territory. Syria has been converted into a new treachery for the anti-imperialist world resistance and the newest enclave of the inter-imperialist struggles.
At the present conditions of this struggle development any result will not bring any advance for the Syrian people and nation; it will only deepen the imperialist dominance over the country and oppression on the people since until now an independent and organized intervention of the armed masses has lacked of a proletarian vanguard even very little constituted.
The March 2011 revolt was a spontaneous mass uprising against a fascist regime led by Bashar al Assad and it is part of an overwhelming wave of people’s rebellions that happened all over the North of Africa and Middle East. The mass rebellions awakened in those countries, despite being developed in an unconscious form and not having a proletarian leadership, have the same root: they are antifascist, anti-feudal and anti-imperialist ones.
The revolt is a just rebellion against a bureaucratic comprador regime at the service of imperialism mostly Russian that has been controlled for decades by the Assad dynasty.
The Yankee imperialism has taken advantage from the situation, as for instance in all Arabic countries rebellions, manipulating the mass struggle, deviating them from the revolutionary path, to guarantee their interests in the region. The intelligentsia services for the imperialist coalition forces have formed and armed a mercenary army self-named Syria’s Free Army –SFA, directed commanded by their agents with the aim of changing the Syrian regime. Thus the USA wants to change the Russian control over Syria, breaking with the relationship with Hezbollah, surround and isolate Iran and prepare the grounds to attack it.
All this complex plan in the Middle East and North of Africa is part of a new war of imperialist plundering and allotment against the peoples. The Yankee imperialism, still being an unique and hegemonic superpower in the world, has declared its objective to create a map of a “New Middle East”, that is, a Middle East totally controlled by the USA, without the influence and interference of other imperialist powers and mostly without the people’s armed resistance of the masses.
The Yankee imperialism, amidst a deep and protracted crises, hit by the people of the world, mostly in the main front of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and by the people’s wars in India, the Philippines, Turkey and Peru, with its hegemony questioned by the inter-imperialist struggle, is more and more at the verge of an unprecedented war.
In this context, the events in Syria are firstly and mostly part of the contradiction between oppressed peoples/countries and imperialist powers; secondly, the inter-imperialist contradiction that could convert into the principal contradiction. This one happens through the dispute for the control of colonies and semi-colonies accumulating and being able to develop into a direct confront in the form of a new world imperialist war.
The new partition of Syria: a new chapter of the imperialist war

After the September 11thevent the Yankee imperialism started a new counterrevolutionary offensive of general character under the name of “War to Terror”. Among its objectives, as part of the partition and repartition of the world, is the idea of building a “new map of the Middle East”. Yankee imperialism has needed for a long time a new order in the region under their complete hegemony so that they could deepen and enlarge the plundering against the world peoples. For that it was necessary to remove the whole order of things in the region. Iraq’s invasion in 1991 and the Soviet revisionism action led by Gorbatchev turned out into the end of the social-imperialist USSR and marked the beginning of a counterrevolutionary offensive under a general character and convergent to imperialism and revisionism. An ideological anticommunist offensive was unleashed, the “End of Communism” and the “End of History” decreed, the armed revisionism taken through Latin America as a consequence of the capitulation of the “Peace Agreements” and heavy blows done to the revolution in Peru.
However, all this reactionary and counterrevolutionary tide was not enough for liquidating the imperialist condition in Russia that recovered in a relatively fast way. At the first decade of 2000 Russia reorganised itself economically and politically under its condition of a nuclear superpower and its petrol reserves. Russia resumed the active role played in the defence of its influence zones in the European East and Middle East and passed to the open retaliation of the Yankee hegemony in the world. Social-imperialist China penetrates in the huge areas of the Yankee influence in the Pacific, dominating commercially and economically, rivalling seriously with the USA in different parts of the planet. Thence, the need for the USA to unleash a new offensive and the “September 11th”  event was the pretext for Iraq’s new invasion, throwing down Sadan regime, invading and occupying Afghanistan and declaring the “Endless War” to prepare the grounds for destabilizing the regimes out of their dominance.
According to the general NATO ex-commander, the North-American Wesley Clark, in November, 2001, an officer of the high command of the Army Forces, USA, informed that the aggression plans to Iraq had been discussed “ as part of a five year campaign plan and there was a total of seven countries involved, starting with Iraq and then Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Somalia and Sudan”.

Thus, two axes of inter-imperialist confront have been shaping: one, considering Russia, China, Iran, Syria, North Korea, Venezuela and others, partially organised under the Organization for Cooperation in Xangai; the other, USA, England, and other NATO countries.
In the Middle East, region where the dispute is happening in the battle field, Russian imperialism with the tacit agreement of China, and taking advantage of the complex contradictions in the area, has led a block with Iran, Syria, Hezbollah (Lebanon) and later Hamas to face the Yankee offensive in the region.
In the game of imperialist interests, Turkey has placed itself as a “Troy horse” playing, in the last years, a planned distance from Israel and working as an interlocutor for the Yankee imperialists in the area. This role has been crystal clear in the Syrian conflict. France has acted every time more actively with the Yankee imperialism not to be left out of the plundering.
Bashar al Assad has tried to establish secret channels with Israel, USA and Turkey. Assad wanted to betray Iran, Hamas and Hezbollah in exchange for support and stability. This was clear in Assad’s statement when “September 11th “  event occurred, mentioning that for him it created “a good opportunity; the need to cooperate was clear and of our interest. Besides a wonderful way to improve the relationship”. The USA used the same tactics with Kadafi, Libya, and did it frequently and largely with the Syrian dungeons for torturing prisoners in its “war to terror”.
The murder of the Lebanon Prime Minister, Hafik Hariri, was a water divisor for the plans of the Yankee intervention in Syria/Lebanon, no matter who was the murderer who favourished the imperialism plans. After Hariri’s death, Bush affirmed that Syria was out of the progress of the “new big Middle East”.

Assad tried to negotiate with the USA at all means. In accordance with information from the imperialist intelligence groups it was Assad who had given Kaddafi’s local to the intelligence services in France ( the satellite mobile phone Kaddafi used to communicate to Assad) that permitted his capture, torture and murder. Assad had done that in order to guarantee Syria’s stability for a while. He wants to negotiate everything and everybody to stay in power but his permanency does not interest the USA anymore that was confronted not by Assad and his regime but for the Russian influence in the region.
Vladimir Putin said, referring, during the celebrations of the victory over Nazi-fascism, in 2011, to the possibility of a new world imperialist war, this time against the USA, that Russia should be ready to accept a new sacrifice. The Russian president, Dimitri Medvedev, said that the Russians were not in the mood for a “Libyan solution” in Syria.

The farce of the “Free Army of Syria

The intervention in Syria, similar to Libya, is inserted in the new model of the “asymmetric wars” in the concept of “Low Intensity War”. The USA, confronting a wave of peoples’s rebellions, could see an opportunity through a complex management of low intensity war and launch more smoke-screen and ‘legitimate’it as a mask for defence of democracy and human rights, one more aggression against the peoples, establishing new puppet regimes by justifying the nations’ domination and occupation.
Such a thing has been already happening in Syria through the false ‘Free Syrian Army’, commanded by Saudi Arabia officers ( in fact CIA agents) and financed by Qatar. The FSA receives weapons from different places from the NATO, in Adana, Turkey. All CIA intelligentsia and English M25 information are transmitted to the military Turkish command that repasses them to the FSA officers as the combat orders.
The preparation for a direct intervention has been done by a large training field organised in Jordania. The Eager Eagle Operation 2012 involves more than 12000 troops from 18 countries under the command of a general of the US Especial Forces (US Defence News, May 15th  ,2012). Those forces have the double objective to encourage the intern opposition forces and announce to the other powers the real possibility for a direct intervention.
The conclusion about the situation in Syria will be crucial for the domination plans of the Yankee imperialism. The USA has been planning the following: either Russia accepts to reduce its influence in the country or it will be without no one. Although a tendency for Russia to surrender to the Yankee offensive could prevail, such events would be inserted in the large context for the accumulation for the III World imperialist War.
