Syria: Pentagon Prepares Military “Options” for Obama

The Pentagon and the U.S. Central Command are preparing “options” for Obama as the United States transitions from diplomatic pressure to military action against Syria.
“Before we start talking about military options, we very much want to ensure that we have exhausted all the political, economic and diplomatic means at our disposal,” AmbassadorSusan Rice  said on CNN’s “Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer” on Wednesday.
The Free Syrian Army is widely recognized as a creation of NATO. It receives support from MI6, the CIA, and British SAS.
The administration calls the preparation a “scooping exercise” designed to find out what military assets Obama will use when the signal is finally given to attack Syria. According to CNN, the planning exercise is typical Pentagon protocol.
“The Pentagon is closely monitoring developments in Syria. It wouldn’t be doing its job if it didn’t put some ideas on the table,” senior U.S. officials explained. “But absolutely no decisions have been made on military support for Syria.”
According to CNN, the options under consideration include military support for opposition groups supported by NATO, the CIA and MI6. Military strikes by the U.S. inside the country are also under consideration.
Most of the analysis is being done by the staff of Gen. James Mattis, head of U.S. Central Command. Mattis is working in collaboration with General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who will present options to the White House.
Earlier today, the Israeli-centric intelligence outfit DEBKAfile reported both British and Qatari Special forces have been dispatched to Syria. DEBKA says “tactical advisers” are working in tandem with the Syrian opposition, but are not involved in the fighting.
“The report suggests that the situation in Syria is developing in an almost identical manner to howrebels in Libya were aided by British and French Special Forces ,” writesPaul Joseph Watson .
In December, Sibel Edmonds  reported that “foreign military groups, estimated at hundreds of individuals,” had taken up positions in the city of al-Mafraq in northern Jordan on the Syrian border. Journalists in the area and a Jordanian military officer who asked to remain anonymous confirmed the movement of foreign troops .
An Arab League observers’ report on Syria  released last week said that MI6, the CIA, and British SAS  are in Syria working with the Free Syrian Army and the Syrian National Council  to overthrow the al-Assad regime.
The Free Syrian Army is widely recognized as a creation of NATO. It is comprised largely of militants from the Muslim Brotherhood  – itself an asset of British intelligence  – and is funded, supported, and armed by the United States, Israel, and Turkey.
