US readies for possibility of intervention without UN resolution, Asharq Al-Awsat reports, citing US military official; plan to include humanitarian aid to Syrian refugees on Turkey's border
The Pentagon is readying for the possibility of intervention in Syria, aiming to halt Syrian President Bashsar Assad's violent crackdown on protesters, the newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat reported Saturday, citing a US military offical.
According to the official, the intervention scenario calls for the establishment of a buffer zone on the Turkish border, in order to receive Syrian refugees. The Red Cross would then provide the civilians humanitarian aid, before NATO crews would arrive from Turkey and join the efforts.
The measure would pave the way for the US to declare an aerial blockade on Syria.
The intercession is to be modeled after NATO's efforts in Kosovo, which brought an end to the Serbian control of the region. NATO's plan of action included prolonged aerial shelling.
The US' diplomatic efforts have yet to yield an effective international resolution that would stop the bloodshed. More than 100 protesters have died over the weekend alone, human rights activists said.

Sitting on their smug, fat, hypocritical arsenals now that a 'cool guy' is doing it. I don't like to feel hate, but those sorts sure inspire it. I endured their spittle and fairy antics when counter-protesting them after 9/11.
Stick up for the Resident now, you creeps. I guess you like war after all if it's Obambi's war.
Cue Belly Button Girl!
This is all fantasy. Its a trial balloon.
hussein was the anti war candidate but isn’t this about his fifth war so far?
Obhamass helping islamists to grab the power again.
Thanks ObHamaSS the good little jihadist !
This guy is a real danger
Isolate Iran ?
You are kidding ?
Isolating Iran by helping islamists ?
The Alawites are the only protection they have against radical Islamists.
I figured that might be the real agenda here. Get rid of the current regime, which while not very nice, protects the christians whom in turn help them out. With Assad gone the christians would be exterminated very quickly.
ynetnews - is it better than Debka ?
Only now we have to wonder what happens when an Russian airplane doesnt turn back.
What a nightmare
Ynet is the most popular Israeli news and general content website.Its the outlet of Israel’s second largest newspaper.
“Probably a good place for Russian to find out how well their S 400 system works.”
Or Iraq. I expect the Russians to challenge us - do we really want to start shooting down their airplanes? Just so the Brotherhood can take power and kill another 2,000,000 Christians. Are dead Christians THAT IMPORTANT to this president?
Hopefully this stunt means the END to Obama’s legitimacy as president.
Funny they already have a model for that:' The intercession is to be modeled after NATO's efforts in Kosovo'. Christians were wiped out.
Interesting keywords on this thread.
Her sisters are stuck in Beirut. Most of the roads into Syria are controlled by Hezbollah.

Not this sh!t again.
Would somebody please explain to me what the US interest is here?
Especially given that we are already engaged everywhere else.
NOTHING in or out. Enforced by air power.
We have the capability.
