US & UK Syria invasion and assassination plot
Documents: White House and No 10 conspired over oil-fuelled invasion plan
The Guardian - Ben Fenton - September 27, 2003, http://albizri.com/index_e.htm
Nearly 50 years before the war in Iraq, Britain and America sought a secretive "regime change" in another Arab country they accused of spreading terror and threatening the west's oil supplies, by planning the invasion of Syria and the assassination of leading figures....Newly discovered documents show in 1957 Harold Macmillan and President Dwight Eisenhower approved a CIA-MI6 plan to stage fake border incidents as an excuse for an invasion by Syria's pro-western neighbours, then to "eliminate" the most influential triumvirate in Damascus...
Driving the call for action was CIA Middle East chief Kermit Roosevelt, grandson of former president Theodore Roosevelt....By 1957, despite America's opposition to the Suez move, President Eisenhower felt he could no longer ignore the danger of Syria becoming a centre for Moscow to spread communism throughout the Middle East. He and Mr Macmillan feared Syria would destabilise pro-western neighbours by exporting terrorism and encouraging internal dissent. More importantly, Syria also had control of one of the main oil arteries of the Middle East, the pipeline which connected pro-western Iraq's oilfields to Turkey.
