Comment: What would NATO and Saudi Arabia do to Syria?

Will Chocolate Saudi Soldiers Melt Away in the Heat of Battle? Join host George Galloway as he discusses the Syria War

US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter says the NATO military alliance may join a coalition purportedly targeting Daesh Takfiri militants in Syria and Iraq.

“Thanks to the leadership of NATO Jens Stoltenberg we are exploring the possibility of NATO joining the coalition as a member itself,” Carter said on Thursday after a meeting with the coalition members in Brussels.

All of NATO’s 28 members are individually part of the US-led coalition that has been conducting air raids in Syria since 2014.

On Thursday, Stoltenberg said NATO had deployed three military vessels to the Aegean Sea to carry out reconnaissance and surveillance operations for what he called countering human trafficking amid the refugee crisis in Europe.

“This is about helping Greece, Turkey and the European Union with stemming the flow of migrants and refugees and coping with a very demanding situation,” he said.

On the sidelines of the Brussels meeting, Carter also met with Saudi Defense Minister and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman Al Saud, whose country is also a member of the coalition.

Peter Cook, Carter’s spokesman, said Saudi Arabia proposed to expand its role in the US-led air campaign.

Riyadh has expressed readiness to deploy special forces to Syria if the US-led coalition decides to deploy ground troops. Bahrain and the UAE also followed in Riyadh’s footsteps and hinted at their preparedness for similar deployments.

    The Anglo-American Zionist alliance is all about overwhelming, unjust and disproportionate force projection. Nothing more. That’s almost the only thing that makes the green paper in our wallets any more “valuable” than the rest. ( Which is why Libya was destroyed for proposing a gold-backed dinar ). We force others to use our paper to buy oil. We arrest people in Europe for exercising free speech about everything fm the Holohoax to this recent invasion. Aggressive lying propaganda and force. The ring that binds it all together in darkness is the private ( mostly the Rothschild division of the Synagogue of Satan ) ownership of the Fed and “Bank of England”..

    4.33 …..”this is 2016 not 1816 , the days when Britain and other NATO countries could just set their gunboats afloat and land in other peoples countries and shoot them up are over . Any NATO and Saudi Arabian intervention on the ground in Syria will be met by The Resistance, at least by the Syrian Arab Army and their Allies, and those Allies are Russia, they are the Islamic Republic of Iran they are Hezbollah and they are a very Formidable Fighting Force that’s now sweeping all before it “ …. let all their ears hear it
