Syria features more prominently in our media headlines worldwide, but few people know what to make of what is happening there. A German journalist and media manager from Frankfurt I spoke to a few days ago in Berlin told me that Syria-related headlines are obligatory, but few people want to click on them, whereas Whitney Houston’s death was the most clicks per hour her publication had ever seen, and total clicks second only to the death of Michael Jackson in June 2009. I was informed from this woman that not only is it expensive to send journalists to Syria (and with little payoff in terms of public interest), it is now verboten and that implicates all sides as doing something unsavory.
As stated in the video, I do not know all of the particulars, but the archetypes involved are quite clear to me. The reading for this is quite similar to the results I often get from corporate assessment tarot readings where work teams are assessed and the machinations of agents in the organization are analyzed. We are looking at concerned foreign heads of state, but with some corrupt misallocations of resources and aide and a leader that is very detached.
This is just a cursory view of the situation and the forces at work; something more in-depth would require informed questions.
On the ground in Europe, I have encountered a few people that believe that much of the violence is being staged or forced by foreign influence. The cards do not say that there is a conspiracy, but they do say that it is an impressionable society because the people are not particularly intense or demanding. The cards do indicate, however, that there is some outcome that seems “inevitable” to Syrians and that they are avoiding, but I have no background knowledge to say what this might be – although I suspicion that it could mean an allegiance or affiliation with either the West or Iran.
Perhaps the most interesting factor is that the US and EU seem to come out of this cycle unfettered.
UPDATE FROM MAY: Some reading may recall a video I did on YouTube where more was revealed and it looked as though Turkey would become ensnared, which later has happened to some degree (7.1.2012):
