U.S. Troops In Jordan: Not New And Certainly No Surprise
October 12, 2012 by Bob Livingston
The mainstream media give the impression that events in the Mideast are building on their own, and the United States is just responding to them. For instance, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta announced Wednesday that U.S. troops had been sent to the Jordan-Syria border — as if this were a new development — in the event that violence there escalates.
The truth is the United States is manipulating events there and has been for some time. It’s all part of a plan developed in September 2000 by the neocon organization The Project for the New American Century and reinforced last March by the Brookings Institute. This was the blueprint President George W. Bush used for the Iraq invasion, which he was planning before he took office. It was continued by the President Barack Obama regime.
This deployment of American troops to Jordan is not new. I personally know Marines who were deployed to this same Jordanian base in June 2011, where they worked to train Jordanian soldiers and built up the infrastructure at this staging area. This was just as the U.S.-backed uprising was beginning to bloom.
The road to Iran leads through Syria. Turkey is working hard to get into a shooting war with Syria to form a pretext for a NATO invasion, since both Russia and China vetoed the idea at the United Nations. American troops in Jordan and Turkish troops along the border between those countries force Syria to continue to stretch its defenses thinner to deal with threats from multiple directions.
The globalist power brokers want continued war and instability in the region, and have for more than a decade. They are getting their wish.
