Obama speeds up limited air strike, no-fly zones preparations for Syria

Tal y como lo informamos esta misma mañana con carácter de primicia en nuestra cuenta Twitter @HechosOpiniones, La Casa Blanca decidió acelerar el ataque aéreo limitado sobre Siria, además de adelantar la prohibición de vuelos sobre las zonas en conflicto.

El presidente de los EE.UU, Barack Obama, le ha ordenado a la Marina y a la Fuerza Aérea Norteamericana acelerar los preparativos para una ofensiva aérea, limitada, contra el régimen de al-Assad así como la imposición de zonas de exclusión aérea sobre Siria, según informe de inteligencia anexo. Su misión será la de eliminar los centros de mando militares del régimen de Assad, a fin de sacudir su estabilidad y restringirle a las fuerzas armadas sirias la actividad de su fuerza aérea para someter la acción rebelde que están provocando actos violentos sobre la población civil.

Fuentes de inteligencia revelan que el Presidente de los EE.UU decidió tomar esta iniciativa después de analizar lo dicho por altos funcionarios rusos, quienes declararan en repetidas ocasiones que “Moscú apoyaría la salida del Presidente Bashar al-Assad, si los sirios así lo acordasen”.

Washington no está seguro de cómo reaccionará Moscú, en caso de que acepte un proceso de cambio de régimen en Damasco y su sustitución por un régimen militar.

Obama speeds up limited air strike, no-fly zones preparations for Syria

US President Barack Obama has ordered the US Navy and Air Force to accelerate preparations for a limited air offensive against the Assad regime and the imposition of no-fly zones over Syria, Intelligence reports. Their mission will be to knock out Assad’s central regime and military command centers so as to shake regime stability and restrict Syrian army and air force activity for subduing rebel action and wreaking violence on civilian populations.

Intelligence sources disclose that the US President decided on this step after hearing Russian officials stating repeatedly that “Moscow would support the departure of President Bashar al-Assad if Syrians agreed to it”. This position was interpreted as opening up two paths of action:

1.  To go for Assad’s removal by stepping up arms supplies to the rebels and organizing their forces as a professional force able to take on the military units loyal to Assad. This process was already in evidence Friday, June 8, when for the first time a Syrian Free Army (which numbers some 600 men under arms) attacked a Syrian army battalion in Damascus. One of its targets was a bus carrying Russian specialists.

2.  To select a group of high army officers who, under the pressure of the limited air offensive, would be ready to ease Assad out of power or stage a military coup to force him and his family to accept exile.

The US operation would be modulated according to the way political and military events unfolded.

Washington is not sure how Moscow would react aside from sharp condemnations or whether Russia would accept a process of regime change in Damascus and its replacement by military rule.
