Cables show present US policy on Syria is essentially an expansion of the policy of the W. Bush regi
  • As the US did in Iraq the US intended to instigate a revolt, through methods including spreading propaganda to nurture sectarianism. US planned to instill "paranoia" in the Syrian government to "shove it to overreact" at any indication of a coup attempt. Consequently, the violence that occurred in 2011 was, together with the result being hundreds of thousands dead and millions of refugees , still being sought, from the USA standpoint, an optimum outcome and large step towards regime change. (Syria is one of the seven states the Bush regime planned to "take out", based on a high-ranking inside source. Readers should additionally note that the US and UK happen to be trying to capture and install a puppet regime in Syria since at least 1948.)
    The interviewer points out the book details "genocidal US policy right all over the world, from Latin America to Asia" and inquires how "all the torture and killing" complements US commercial interests (the propaganda period being "the free market"). Assange says the cables document the US government acting as sales rep and to "ensure advantageous bargains and constructions" for the "biggest US businesses", for example Boeing and Monsanto. The "modern empire" used for these jobs consists of "more than 1,400 US military bases in over 120 countries". The interests being represented aren't those of the ordinary US citizen, but businesses that can get close enough to the government (achieved via bribery) to be influential. (Readers will remember this dynamic is documented by scrupulous professional study.)

    Continuing US policy is always to use "unconventional warfare", meaning the employment of "surrogate forces", proxies, to overthrow governments. The US uses all its arms and agencies in these pursuits to fiscal, including agencies such as USAID and the IMF to intelligence to commercial, shoving them in tandem contrary to the target state.
    US attempts to subvert the International Criminal Court by preventing extradition of US nationals for war crimes along with other violations, and keeps the court focused on prosecuting Africans (no surprise given US domestic behaviors and histories).
    Though some integration is occurring to attempt to counter-balance US power, for example along the Silk Road, the US must not be underestimated, as no other nation has anything remotely like "1,400 military bases". (Russia has around 12 and China 0; the US is trying to remove Russian bases in Syria, and recently attempted to remove the Russian base in Crimea). While after WW2 the US controlled 50% of the world's wealth, that's now down to about 40%; US military spending is down from about 50% of international total to about 40%; yet, the US "intelligence" budget is up to 60% of the world's total; (the US is known to spy on essentially the world's entire population).
    Obama has prosecuted more whistle blowers than all previous presidents combined. Chelsea Manning's 35-year sentence is longer than that of any individual related to the US invasion of Iraq. Edward Snowden is "not safe" in the United States or some US ally.
