WHY FRANCE? "France is a kind of low-hanging tree, the weakest link in this chain; they were starting move towards discussions of joining Russia in the real war against ISIS,” says Daniel Patrick Welch
Russia bombing Daesh and US policy of regime change in Syria: American writer

PressTV - Russia is not only attacking Daesh (ISIL) terrorists in Syria but also the US policy of regime change that it implements by unleashing death squads on sovereign nations, according to American writer and political analyst.
Daniel Patrick Welch made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Sunday while commenting on a planned meeting between US President Barack Obama and Saudi Arabian King Salman, following the Paris attacks.
The two men were scheduled to meet on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Turkey on Sunday, two days after bombers and gunmen launched coordinated attacks in and around the French capital, killing at least 129 people and injuring 352 others.
The Daesh (ISIL) terrorists, who were initially trained by the CIA in Jordan in 2012 to destabilize the Syrian government, have claimed responsibility for the deadly attacks in France.
Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. The crisis has claimed the lives of more than 250,000 people so far and displaced millions of others. The US and its regional allies, including Turkey and Saudi Arabia, have been backing militants fighting against the Syrian government and people.
On September 30, Russia began its military campaign against militants wreaking havoc in Syria. Moscow has carried out scores of airstrikes, killing hundreds of terrorists.
“I have a kind of morbid sense of humor, but even I find this more of a sick joke. Look at the representatives of the states that are either the main catalysts of this terrorist death squad, bore by a proxy system, really, really a global system they have been perpetrating for a decade now to meet and talk about what to do about ISIS!” Welch said.
“As I say it’s almost comical, you feel it a fly on the wall. What you hear them say? There are coming to say, ‘Hey, these are our guys or yours guys or the other guys?’ Oops!
“And it is a shocking turn of events that it would be an intrusion into the heart of white Europe that stirs this kind of outrage. Of course, victims of terrorism everywhere deserve sympathy, there’s no question about that, but when some 200 plus Russians were blown out of the sky Obama not only didn’t call it an attack on all humanity, he didn’t bother to call President Putin at all.
“So it calls into question some of the response to it, and the outraged response is not only indicative of the hierarchy of victimhood in the war of terrorism but also a pointer into what needs to happen from this.”
False flag or blowback?
Welch said that there is no evidence the Paris massacre is “a false flag yet anyway, although I would love to get a car or a house made of these indestructible passports. They seem to be like a miracle.”
“But it doesn’t matter if it’s a false flag or blowback, or just the logical conclusion, an extension of the wars that have been put into motion, the aim in either case would be Western public opinion. Why France? France is a kind of low-hanging tree, the weakest link in this chain; they were starting move towards discussions of joining Russia in the real war against ISIS,” he added.
“And, of course, whether we are talking about this fraudulent meeting between Salman and Obama as being somehow pivotal to the war on ISIS, or ISIL or whatever, it doesn’t matter in the sense that ISIS is only part of the picture, whether or not you agree that it’s their baby or their baby’s cousin or their baby’s half sibling or some sort of offshoot, it is defiantly part of this overarching system, this gulag of terrorist death squads that have been part and parcel of US imperial foreign policy since at least the ‘50s.
“You know this is the script that was laid out for the overthrow of the Guatemala and Iranian governments in 1953 and 1954, and it hasn’t changed a single bit.
“And the thing is that what Russia is doing why it’s so huge and historic? It’s not only trying to target ISIS, and they are right. The critics were saying they are not only targeting ISIS, but they are targeting other groups as well. Of course they are.
“But what they are mainly targeting is this very idea, this idea that goes back Edward Bernays, Freud’s nephew, in the way to convince a population to join a war. This kind of a false flag or proxy war, the demonization of the people in power, and try to overthrow the regime, and the coup in Syria, and the international invasion of Syria, is the exact same thing that has been happening all along.
“What Russia is saying is that we want to end that, the very concept of attacking sovereignty from without and effecting regime change or coups – since we should call them what they are -- in any country we don’t like the leadership in.
“And that is a huge change, not only a shift in the geopolitical balance of power, but a huge change in political history if that idea and that project is brought to an end. And I think this is done out of desperation. I think they are on the verge of defeat, not only ISIS but this concept, and that is a wonderful and an incredible victory for humankind if and when it comes about.”
