More Executive Orders. More Regime Change.

Over the weekend, in an unprecedented move, President Barack Obama signed Executive Order 13606,  banning electronic aid - from cellphone tracking to Internet monitoring - to Iran and Syria (foreign nationals who pose a threat) after declaring a national emergency.  In other words, in somewhat vague terminology, which could possibly open loopholes, he is targeting people and entities who use technology to help  Iran and Syria suppress their people. But, is it as bad as the mainstream media makes it out to be?

After spinning these lies, The New York Times was forced to admit, in several articles, that there have been massive rallies in Syria in support of the Syrian government. These rallies are larger than any pro-government demonstration that the U.S. government could hope to organize for itself.
Now, if you continue to believe that what is being reported in Syria is, indeed, real, then instead of feeling a wee bit threatened, you probably see nothing wrong with Obama signing his 117th or 118th  EO.

However, keep in mind, General Wesley Clark's speech in 2007, at the Commonwealth Club of California. He claimed that Paul Wolfowitz said the US had 5-10 years to clean up the old Soviet "client regimes" before the next super power rose up to challenge western hegemony, and then went on to say   that shortly after September 11, 2001, while at the Pentagon, a document handed down from the Office of the Secretary of Defense indicated plans to attack and destroy the governments of seven countries; Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Iran, Lebanon and Libya.

Of course, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) thinks it's a great idea as it  reports on the establishment of the Atrocities Prevention Board (APB), describing it as a "new interagency body...that represents a major advance in the U.S. commitment to counter genocide and mass atrocities. If the APB functions as intended, it will make a real difference to the effectiveness of the U.S. government in meeting the challenge of these horrific crimes".

Orwellian translation: "new interagency body...that represents a major advance in the U.S. commitment to encourage genocide and mass atrocities. If the APB functions as intended, it will make a real difference to the effectiveness of the U.S. government in meeting the creation of these horrific crimes".

Remember, not everyone - if anyone at all - has something to gain by regime change in Syria.  Ask the Christian population. They will tell you they have everything to fear from a regime change, yet, as a supposedly Christian nation, we hear very little about the Middle East - the birthplace of Christianity - Christians, who have all but vanished from that region, from 20% to 2% in 40 years. Syria's Christian population is about 6-10%.
