From 2014 on the number of asylum applications in the EU is at a peak: In 2014 it reached 626,000 and in 2015 even doubled to a whopping 1,255,640 first time asylum applications…
A relatively large amount of these immigrants became refugees because of the war against Syria.
Already in 1983 plans to attack Syria from 3 neighbouring countries were made.
CIA officer Graham Fuller proposed a plan to deal with Syria under Assad’s predecessor — his father, Hafez al-Assad — and is dated 14 September 1983.
Fuller’s analysis, describes Assad as a nuisance hindering the interests of the USA and Israel. Destabilisation of Iraq and Iran also features prominently in this plan to get rid of the elder Assad: http://thefreethoughtproject.com/cia-do ... yria-1983/
See the following excerpts from Fuller’s document:
Syria at present has a hammerlock on US interests both in Lebanon and in the Gulf — through closure of Iraq’s pipeline thereby threatening Iraqi internationalization of the war. The US should consider sharply escalating the pressures against Assad through covertly orchestrating simultaneous military threats against Syria from three border states hostile to Syria: Iraq, Israel and Turkey.
Faced with three belligerent fronts, Assad would probably be forced to abandon his policy of closure of the pipeline. Such a concession would relieve the economic pressure on Iraq, and perhaps force Iran to reconsider bringing the war to an end. It would be a sharpening blow to Syria’s prestige and could effect the equation of forces in Lebanon\
Syria continues to maintain a hammerlock on two key U.S. interests in the Middle East:
— Syrian refusal to withdraw its troops from Lebanon ensures Israeli occupation in the south;
— Syrian closure of the Iraqi pipeline has been a key factor in bringing Iraq to its financial knees, impelling it towards dangerous internationalization of the war in the Gulf.
Diplomatic initiatives to date have had little effect on Assad who has so far correctly calculated the play of forces in the area and concluded that they are only weakly arrayed against him. If the U.S. is to rein in Syria’s spoiling role, it can only do so through the exertion of real muscle which will pose a vital threat to Assad’s position and power.
There is evidence from Judicial Watch that the Obama administration (with Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State) financed, armed and trained Syrian terrorists (including ISIS).
Until September 2012 weapons that had belonged to the Libyan army were shipped from Benghazi to Syrian terrorists. Including weapons for Al Qaeda, that was later renamed into ISIS: http://www.salon.com/2015/05/28/the_ben ... ing_about/
There is also a (censored) October 2012 document from the DoD, published by Judicial Watch, that confirms that the Obama administration shipped weapons from the Port of Benghazi to rebel troops in Syria: http://www.judicialwatch.org/wp-content ... rsion1.pdf
Weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the Port of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The weapons shipped during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s, and 125 mm and 155mm howitzers missiles.
Official documents show that the Obama administration helped the extremist groups that were created in the Middle East by earlier US administrations.
According to CNN, the US and some of its European allies (including Britain!) have in fact used defence contractors to train Syrian rebels on how to use chemical weapons stockpiles in Syria
, as well as in neighbouring Turkey and Jordan and “involves how to monitor and secure stockpiles and handle weapons sites and materials

In 2012, Google helped Al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups, like the Muslim Brotherhood, to gain new members.
The then director of Google Ideas, Jared Cohen, coordinated support for these “rebel” groups. Google employed it’s expertise to help the conflict in Syria gain traction. In July 2012, Google provided a software tool, to tracked defections in Syria, which, with the help of Al-Jazeera, helped the Syrian “rebels” (terrorists).
According to US officials and Google, this should encourage people to take up arms and join the ranks of the “rebels”. Then Director of Policy Planning for President Obama, Jake Sullivan, let Hillary Clinton know that “this is a pretty cool idea
Another email by Sullivan shows that according to the Obama administration Al Qaeda (AQ) “is on our side in Syria
