DEBKAfile: US, France, UK, Turkey, Italy prepare for military intervention in Syria
"Despite public denials, military preparations for intervention in the horrendous Syrian crisis are quietly afoot in Washington, Paris, Rome, London and Ankara. President Barack Obama is poised for a final decision after the Pentagon submits operational plans for protecting Syrian rebels and beleaguered populations from the brutal assaults of Bashar Assad’s army, DEBKAfile’s Washington sources disclose.
This process is also underway in allied capitals which joined the US in the Libyan operation that ended Muammar Qaddafi’s rule in August, 2011. They are waiting for a White House decision before going forward."
It will be interesting to see the Russian reaction if there is another NATO intervention. Russian warships are already in Syria and Russian Spetnaz (special forces) have been on alert for deployment to Syria.
