The website of the Syrian Arab News Agency SANA is regularly blocked by Washington that doesn't stop its war propaganda and its financial and military aid to terrorist groups.
Through Nato, the US is able to exercise influence over the domestic affairs of other countries and to exercise its imperial power
American and NATO forces are training Syrian terrorist groups in southeastern Turkish city of Hakkari.
The US is also involved in smuggling arms into Syria from Incirlik military base in Turkey in addition to providing financial support for Syrian terrorist groups.
Through NATO, working with various Western European intelligence agencies, the CIA set up a network of stay behind “secret armies” which were responsible for dozens of terrorist atrocities across Western Europe over decades.
In Turkey in 1960, the stay behind army, working with the army, staged a coup d’état and killed Prime Minister Adnan Menderes; in Algeria in 1961, the French stay-behind army staged a coup with the CIA against the French government of Algiers, which ultimately failed; in 1967, the Greek stay-behind army staged a coup and imposed a military dictatorship; in 1971 in Turkey, after a military coup, the stay-behind army engaged in “domestic terror” and killed hundreds; in 1977 in Spain, the stay behind army carried out a massacre in Madrid; in 1980 in Turkey, the head of the stay behind army staged a coup and took power; in 1985 in Belgium, the stay behind attacked and shot shoppers randomly in supermarkets, killing 28; in Switzerland in 1990, the former head of the Swiss stay behind wrote the US Defense Department he would reveal “the whole truth,” and was found the next day stabbed to death with his own bayonet; and in 1995, England revealed that the MI6 and SAS helped set up stay behind armies across Western Europe.
NATO claims that the idea behind the NATO’s missile defense plans, is to secure Europe from attack by Iran or some other hostile power. But in reality, through Nato, the US is able to exercise influence over the domestic affairs of other countries and to exercise its imperial power.
