The U.S. Has Already Completed Regime Change In Syria (1949), Iran (1953), Iraq (Twice), Afghanistan (Twice), Turkey, Libya and Other Oil-Rich Countries

Posted on September 17, 2014 (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/09/u-s-already-completed-regime-change-syria-iran-iraq-twice-oil-rich-countries.html) by WashingtonsBlog (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/author/washingtonsblog)


Syria

Everyone knows that the U.S. and its allies have heavily backed Islamic terrorists (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/09/top-u-s-military-official-arab-allies-support-isis.html) in Syria in an attempt to implement regime change in that country.
But did you know that the U.S. previously carried out regime change in Syria?
The CIA backed a right-wing coup in Syria in 1949 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March_1949_Syrian_coup_d%27%C3%A9tat). Douglas Little, Professor, Department of Clark University History professor Douglas Little notes (http://coat.ncf.ca/our_magazine/links/issue51/articles/51_12-13.pdf):
As early as 1949, this newly independent Arab republic was an important staging ground for the CIA’s earliest experiments in covert action.
The CIA secretly encouraged a right-wing military coup in 1949.

The reason the U.S. initiated the coup? Little explains:
In late 1945, the Arabian American Oil Company (ARAMCO) announced plans to construct the Trans-Arabian Pipe Line (TAPLINE) from Saudi Arabia to the Mediterra- nean. With U.S. help, ARAMCO secured rights-of-way from Lebanon, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. The Syrian right-of-way was stalled in parliament.

In other words, Syria was the sole holdout for the lucrative oil pipeline.
(Indeed, the CIA has carried out this type of covert action right from the start (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/09/start-cia-engaged-terrorism-long-gave-plausable-deniability-government.html).)
In 1957, the American president and British prime minister agreed (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/07/57-years-ago-u-s-britain-approved-use-islamic-extremists-topple-syrian-government.html) to launch regime change again in Syria. Historian Little notes that the coup plot was discovered and stopped:
On August 12, 1957, the Syrian army surrounded the U.S. embassy in Damascus. Claiming to have aborted a CIA plot to overthrow neutralist President Shukri Quwatly and install a pro-Western regime, Syrian chief of counterintelligence Abdul Hamid Sarraj expelled three U.S. diplomats ….
Syrian counterintelligence chief Sarraj reacted swiftly on August 12, expelling Stone and other CIA agents, arresting their accomplices and placing the U.S. embassy under surveillance.

Neoconservatives planned regime change in Syria once again in 1991 (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2011/11/neoconservatives-planned-regime-change-throughout-the-middle-east-and-northern-africa-20-years-ago.html).
And as Nafeez Ahmed notes (http://www.counterpunch.org/2014/09/12/how-the-west-created-the-islamic-state/):
According to former French foreign minister Roland Dumas (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jeyRwFHR8WY), Britain had planned covert action in Syria as early as 2009: “I was in England two years before the violence in Syria on other business,” he told French television: “I met with top British officials, who confessed to me that they were preparing something in Syria. This was in Britain not in America. Britain was preparing gunmen to invade Syria.”
Leaked emails from the private intelligence firm Stratfor (http://blogs.channel4.com/alex-thomsons-view/syria-spooks-wikileaks-military/5502), including notes from a meeting with Pentagon officials (https://wikileaks.org/gifiles/docs/1671459_insight-military-intervention-in-syria-post-withdrawal.html), confirmed that as of 2011, US and UK special forces training of Syrian opposition forces was well underway. The goal was to elicit the “collapse” of Assad’s regime “from within.”

Iraq

Everyone knows that the U.S. toppled Saddam Hussein during the Iraq War.
But did you know that the U.S. previously carried out regime change in Iraq?
Specifically, the CIA plotted to poison the Iraqi leader (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CIA_activities_in_Iraq#Iraq_1960) in 1960. In 1963, the U.S. backed the coup which succeeded (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CIA_activities_in_Iraq#Iraq_1963) in killing the head of Iraq.
Recently, Iraq has started to break apart as a nation. USA Today notes, “Iraq is already splitting into three states (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2014/07/28/iraq-divided-into-three-states/13165519/?utm_source=feedblitz&utm_medium=FeedBlitzRss&utm_campaign=usatoday-newstopstories)“. Many say that is by design (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/06/mess-iraq-design.html) … a form of regime change.
Iran

Everyone knows that regime change in Iran has been a long-term goal of the hawks in Washington.
But do you know that the U.S. already carried out regime change in Iran in 1953 … which led to radicalization of the country in the first place?
Specifically, the CIA admits (http://www.nytimes.com/library/world/mideast/041600iran-cia-index.html) that the U.S. overthrew the moderate, suit-and-tie-wearing, Democratically-elected prime minister of Iran in 1953. (He was overthrown because he had nationalized Iran’s oil (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohammad_Mosaddegh), which had previously been controlled by BP and other Western oil companies). As part of that action, the CIA admits (http://www.nytimes.com/library/world/mideast/041600iran-cia-index.html) that it hired Iranians to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its prime minister.
If the U.S. hadn’t overthrown the moderate Iranian government, the fundamentalist Mullahs would have never taken over. Iran has been known for thousands of years for tolerating Christians and other religious minorities. (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/08/u-s-government-is-prosecuting-christians.html)
Hawks in the U.S. government been pushing for another round of regime change in Iran for decades (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2011/11/neoconservatives-planned-regime-change-throughout-the-middle-east-and-northern-africa-20-years-ago.html).
Turkey

The CIA has acknowledged that it was behind the 1980 coup in Turkey (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1980_Turkish_coup_d%27%C3%A9tat#American_involveme nt).
Afghanistan

The U.S. obviously bombed the Taliban into submission during the Afghanistan war.
But Hillary Clinton and then-president Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser have both admitted on the record (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/09/sleeping-with-the-devil-how-u-s-and-saudi-backing-of-al-qaeda-led-to-911.html) that the U.S. previously carried out regime change in Afghanistan in the 1970s by backing Bin Laden and the Mujahadin … the precursor to Al Qaeda.
Libya

Not only did the U.S. engage in direct military intervention against Gadafi, but also – as confirmed by a group of CIA officers (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/04/confirmed-u-s-armed-al-qaeda-topple-gaddaffi.html) – armed Al Qaeda so that they would help topple Gaddafi.
Indeed, the U.S. has carried out coups and destabilization campaigns all over the world (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/09/start-cia-engaged-terrorism-long-gave-plausable-deniability-government.html) … creating chaos (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/07/iraq-afghanistan-libya-countries-u-s-regime-changed-going-chaos.html).
And see this (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/08/roots-iraq-war-plantedplanned-1948.html).

I agree that we've done a lot. However, I still prefer fighting our enemies on foreign soil rather than on American soil. And no matter how isolationist we want to become, we will still have enemies. Pretending we are not affected by what goes on in the world will not help us survive in the world.

i'm not sure how to reply to that.

But can you tell me how Switzerland survives?
or China survives without invading countries and toppling M.E. regimens?

I think we've been sold a bill of goods that we'll somehow desintergarate if we don't rain down assasinations and Cans of Whip Arse on other countries and peoples anytime they don't do what we say, or say they don't like us.

I SO hope we can end up like China, and have great leaders like they do, and SO much freedom to go along with it!

Hoss, Switzerland survives because WE-America, shoulders the colossal burden that allows their survival.

WE, are the ones that keep the damn wolves at bay..

At least we did until the slimy bam traitor moved in with his infections.
Now the wolves are on the prowl and the traitor only seeks to make sure the side of Islam he belongs to wins power to control the coming Caliphate!!
That is the big picture that you seem to miss amigo..
However don't let it bother you--most Americans miss it too. I'd say about 97.9%.... -Tyr

Are you looking for the US to take a pre-WWII protectionist stance on the world stage?

ok I may have missed the big picture.
but often i only hear vague assertions that WE are "keeping the wolves at bay".
3 questions I'll ask you.

1. Who would attack Switzerland if we pulled out of HALF or 3/4 of the bases around the world?
Name the wolf or wolves specifically.

2. what wolf are we keeping in bay when we assassinate or over throw the leaders of Chile , and Nicaragua, Honduras, Turkey or Hatti? What wolf is Syria's Asad and or Libya to Switzerland?
Vietnam and Korea, were they a threat to Switzerland?

3. Are we obligated to protect Sweden and Switzerland? Are they going to help pay for the wounded soldiers and our arsenal? Are they so poor and backwards that they and the other euro countries can't field decent armies to SELF protect? Do you really want American soldiers and $$ to protect Switzerland? or Korea, or Libya or Saudi Arabia?


It just seems to me that A LOT of the wars and violent meddling we do is not just a waste of soldiers lives and NOT in the best interest of "the world". And we'd be perfectly fine with our Largest military in the world primarily staying at HOME.
Let the navy patrol the worlds waters and our satellites, spies, diplomats and NSA keeps tabs on the world but let the military primarily stay home.

We can never quite go back to Pre WWII but IMO we could radically pull back from the 850(?) military bases across the world and boots on the ground fighting in 2-5 countries now.

Plus our Primary "military" threats are not nation states at this point.
But thugs financed by rich individuals and some nation states.

the military is not the best tool to deal with that problem.

Perhaps a communist stance, with a dictator, so that we can stay out of any ME meddling? :laugh2:

Switzerland is a mountain country. It's not easily accessed and ALL male citizens are required to keep arms and be prepared to repel invaders. It's territory is not worth invading. In WW2 it was cut off and isolated. The choice to remain neutral was not really a choice. The Vatican didn't have a choice either.

China, that bastion of democracy. They never interfere in world events. Well except that little thing called the Korean War. Or Tibet and Mongolia, or the slaughter of 40 million Chinese. And they don't get involved in influencing other countries, well, except maybe iran, syria, and most of the African countries. And they're certainly not aggressive. Well except for taking over islands of Japan, the Philippines, Vietnam and Taiwan. And that 2 million man standing army is certainly no threat to the US or anyone else right?

Countries that have never had freedom and democracy don't know what to do with it when they get it. But the communists and islamics know how to manipulate the population so they can get into power. What's better, a democratically elected communist or islamic govt that wants to destroy the US and all freedom or a strong man dictator that is friendly to the US? Pick your evil. Do you think Russia, China, Iran and others are not putting money and people in place to influence countries and overthrow governments? Do you think the US is the only one doing this?

Russia's returning to their old ways. Do we just leave it be or stand up to them? If we stand up to them we need lots of bases in the area. It's called logistics. Bases are points to bring in troops, supplies and equipment. Since we are quickly returning to the Cold War it's best to have bases available.

Six Russian bombers recently crossed into Alaskan air space. They are back to playing that game again. You know bombers, that can reach the US mainland. They are testing our response time and type of response. They have planners too. We are living in dangerous times right now because we don't have a president and our enemies are pushing to see how far they can go.

BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!!

Putin sees that the "bam-genius" is focused only on the coming Islamic Caliphate . Putin sees where the ffing traitor's heart truly lays and its not with us!!
Dangerous times indeed. Dangerous on two fronts--the outside enemies we face and the bigger enemy inside that runs this government--this nation and seeks its destruction.
I only started telling all of this on my old forum 6 years ago--even before King Obama started his tyrannical reign.
And al of it has came to pass, just as my prediction of the next two years shall come to pass!
If this nations enemies(dems) retain control of the Senate we shall see the unimaginable come about by way of this enemies Executive Orders. In fact, I have an older thread right here about his Executive Orders that was blasted/ridiculed all to Hell by the usual suspects..
Hell, if I have time I may resurrect that thread just to point out how damn right I was and how wrong the current reality proves they were!!--Tyr

The U.S. has been meddling in the affairs of Central and South American countries for more than a century. It's like we need to control everyone. It's pretty sad.
