Many think that the events of the First and Second World Wars are essentially ancient history and have no influence on the current geopolitical reality; however, according to American political scientist and journalist Phil Butler, certain long-forgotten ‘technicalities’ might unexpectedly become the golden key to resolving the Syrian crisis…
“Not many reading this will know there are many nations still at war with Japan and Germany, as well as other Axis powers, technically, that is,” Phil Butler writes in his article for the website New Eastern Outlook.
Among those are Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, and Syria, he says, ironically adding that, as it turns, “refugees from the region are now streaming into enemy territory by the hundreds of thousands”.
Since then, for more than 70 years already, Germany has been “a vassal of Britain and the United States”. However, just one document could change it all.
During the years of the Second World War, the region of the Middle East was embraced with the ideas of T.E. Lawrence, better known as Lawrence of Arabia, who had promoted the idea of a free and cohesive Middle East.
Thomas Edward Lawrence was a British archaeologist, military officer, and diplomat.
“Assigned by British Army Intelligence to form up an Arab army of revolt against the Ottoman Turks, Lawrence later became disillusioned with the partitioning of Arabia after the war. He was particularly disenchanted by the crown’s efforts to establish a Jewish state in the middle of Palestine,” Butler says.
His ideas were much feared by the West and back in 1941, already after his mysterious death in 1935, the Western powers launched the so-called Syria–Lebanon campaign, also known as Operation Exporter.
The signing of this particular document, the author says, might be the very key to a peaceful end game in Syria.
“A treaty now, in between Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, and other nations who’ve not officially signed such declarations accomplishes three very important functions.”
“First and foremost, for instance, a Bashar Hafez al-Assad brokered “truce” in between these nations forwards the concept of Arabian independence T. E. Lawrence advocated. Assad as the catalyst would indemnify many Islamic tenants, and refute for millions the potential of a new Ottoman Empire, which some profess is in the works.”
“Secondly, a treaty in between Germany and Syria in particular, would vehemently realign the western alliance strategy. Or in other words, dash any neocon or bankster play to destroy and fragment the Middle East further.”
“Germany is one key to a resolute peace, for American and Britain alone stand no chance at hegemony alone.”
At least this is his theory.
