The same person, Teddy Roosevelt’s grandson, who planned and headed the CIA coup to overthrow Iran’s progressive secular democratic anti-communist President Mohammed Mossadegh in 1953, and to replace him with the brutal dictator Shah Reza Pahlevi, so as to continue Western oil companies’ control over Iran’s oil and gas, went on to plan four years later, in 1957, the invasion of Syria by the U.S., along with Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey; and it’s virtually exactly the plan that U.S. President Barack Obama has been placing into action ever since Obama first stepped into the White House: Obama’s plan, like Kermit “Kim” Roosevelt’s plan, entailed what in the intelligence trade is referred to as “false flag” events, which are intended to deceive the public into thinking that the actual victims of the overthrow-operation were instead to be blamed for it. (That’s like Obama’s 2013 sarin gas attack in Syria that he wanted to use as an excuse to invade Syria to remove Assad.)
Back in 1957, there was no Assad dynasty in Syria, but only the Ba’ath Party, which was, and is, the only effective non-sectarian, or non-theocratic, political force in Arabic countries; so, America’s oil companies used instead the Islamic forces, in order to grab Middle Eastern oil, and to be able to use Syria as the vital pipeline-route for it into Europe (the world’s largest energy-market). The Ba’athists refused to cooperate with any such plan for foreign control over their national resources. This was the basis for America’s determination to overthrow the Ba’athists, and replace them with their enemies, the Islamists. (This was likewise a reason for America’s wars against the Ba’athist Saddam Hussein.)
Whereas U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower was ultimately forced to cancel Kim’s plan because only Turkey was willing to participate in it, Obama was able to get the royals of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to perform as Kim had planned for them: getting U.S. weapons to Syria’s jihadists, and supporting the main jihadist organization, Sunni Islam’s fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood, to be the chief Syrian participants in overthrowing the Ba’athists.
