Hillary Clinton's Leaked Cables Shed Light On Initial Plans For Syrian Crisis

Click to see full-size image

On June 16th, leaked cables showed that US, UK and Israel pre-planned the proxy war taking place in Syria since 2011.

The cables date back to 2000, and have quotes from Hillary Clinton such as:

“The best way to help Israel is to help the people of Syria overthrow the regime of Bashar al-Assad”

In an interview, the Former French Minister of Foreign Affairs claimed that the UK was preparing gunmen to invade Syria 2 years before the “uprising.”

The entire document can be found and read on WikiLeaks.

Hillary Clinton, in the email leak, attempts to describe how instability in Syria is tied to Iran’s nuclear program, and that direction negotiations wouldn’t ever solve Israel’s “security dilemma.”

“What Israeli military leaders really worry about — but cannot talk about – is losing their nuclear monopoly. An Iranian nuclear weapons capability would not only end that nuclear monopoly but could also prompt other adversaries, like Saudi Arabia and Egypt, to go nuclear as well. The result would be a precarious nuclear balance in which Israel could not respond to provocations with conventional military strikes on Syria and Lebanon, as it can today. If Iran were to reach the threshold of a nuclear weapons state, Tehran would find it much easier to call on its allies in Syria and Hezbollah to strike Israel, knowing that its nuclear weapons would serve as a deterrent to Israel responding against Iran itself.”

In the emails, a comparison is made to what transpired in Libya, and what could potentially transpire in Syria, but it was impeded, because the “moderate opposition” was fragmented, the Arab League hasn’t called for outside intervention, and likely most important – Russia is opposed of such a situation in Syria.

“Unlike in Libya, a successful intervention in Syria would require substantial diplomatic and military leadership from the United States.

Washington should start by expressing its willingness to work with regional allies like Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar to organize, train and arm Syrian rebel forces. The announcement of such a decision would, by itself, likely cause substantial defections from the Syrian military. Then, using territory in Turkey and possibly Jordan, U.S. diplomats and Pentagon officials can start strengthening the opposition. It will take time. But the rebellion is going to go on for a long time, with or without U.S. involvement.”

It is apparent that not everything went according to plan, because in the cable it is described that it would be best if the US didn’t have to deploy ground troops, similar to Libya and Kosovo. But it did.

The best plan, which requires a lower cost, but promises a higher payoff is to arm the Syrian rebels and using western air power to ground Syrian helicopters and airplanes.

“As long as Washington’s political leaders stay firm that no U.S. ground troops will be deployed, as they did in both Kosovo and Libya, the costs to the United States will be limited. Victory may not come quickly or easily, but it will come. And the payoff will be substantial. Iran would be strategically isolated, unable to exert its influence in the Middle East. The resulting regime in Syria will see the United States as a friend, not an enemy. Washington would gain substantial recognition as fighting for the people in the Arab world, not the corrupt regimes. For Israel, the rationale for a bolt from the blue attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities would be eased. And a new Syrian regime might well be open to early action on the frozen peace talks with Israel. Hezbollah in Lebanon would be cut off from its Iranian sponsor since Syria would no longer be a transit point for Iranian training, assistance and missiles. All these strategic benefits and the prospect of saving thousands of civilians from murder at the hands of the Assad regime (10,000 have already been killed in this first year of civil war).”

It essentially described what the conflict looked like in the start, and how it was expected for it to run its course, but it would seem that the advent of the ISIS caliphate was unforeseen, at least not entirely, and that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government, together with support from Russia and Iran would actually do so well, and continue doing increasingly well in countering these activities.

Zionism = EVIL

I will tell you kids something, if that Zionist senile cunt Biden ever gets in, the region will be far worse off. Trump is just a ineffective loudmouth, but the Democrats are totally owned by Jew cunts and pure evil.Nixon hated the Jews and Trump is a racist, so I am not sure where he really stands.

Lazy Gamer

The “Arab spring” happened when he was still VP.

Assad must stay

Every single election its always bad or worse, they never let us pick a good guy

cechas vodobenikov

confirmation of the obvious

<- Beware the Jew

The real solution is for Iran to finally, at long last, and “about effin’ time”, to develop nuclear weapons. Having a nuclear-armed Iran will keep Israeli dogs at bay, get rid of the Yanks, keep the Saudis in check, and ultimately and MOST IMPORTANTLY, will allow Iran to achieve huge technological strides, even bigger than now (under sanctions), and will create a stronger Syria and Lebanon, preventing the Yids from willy-nilly attacks on their territory. Who knows? It may even solve the Palestinian issue somehow…

Assad must stay

she is pure rotten evil


Truth. She’s a psychopath, and America and the world dodged a huge bullet in 2016.

Assad must stay

hondred procent true, i remember adding up the electoral votes on election night and was very relieved when i realized trump would win, but that was then, and now trump is a conman

These cables show just how easy it is for these parasites to eat each others bullshit. They talk of President Assad’s admin as a regime with absolutely no sense of irony. US troops left in Syria and Iraq are expendable, just like Ambassador Stevens.

After gorging on each others bullshit, I bet all involved feel a little stupid and have also had to each their words. Bon appetite warmongering bullshitters.

And a new Syrian regime might well be open to early action on the frozen peace talks with Israel. Hezbollah in Lebanon would be cut off from its Iranian sponsor since Syria would no longer be a transit point for Iranian training, assistance and missiles.


In a just world that bitch would be hanging from her neck, along with Bill for all their crimes. Sadly the elite seldom face justice for the evils they instigate.

Brother Ma

No talk of what the Syrian people want ,only of putting in a Compliant Syrian puppet. Of course , that is all that the US wants ,someone to rubberstamp plans and treaties with no care of a country pushed back into the Stone Age.

The US really is the the Great Satan. Those Iranians were right.


This Clinton Scandal is exactly what the current stupid BLM-circus is trying to hide! Fill peoples heads with stupid, Soros-paid & bought for BLM, so they can’t watch the Clinton Scandal unfolding and people don’t demand the HEAD of both War Criminal Clintons! Of course the public execution of Clintons would start a Domino Effect allowing President Trump to pursue similar goals, hunting down Cheney, Wolfowitz, Blair and the rest of the Satanic Abuse GangRapist Child-Killer Pedophiles!!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
