The false media propaganda to support military strikes against Syria is in full gear. And the government and media keep repeating that the evidence is "undeniable." Of course it is deniable: they simply have no evidence. There is no doubt a chemical attack occurred. There is doubt about who ordered the attack. The White House, lacking evidence, says "common sense" proves Assad's government was responsible for the chemical attacks in Syria. Since when is "common sense" proof? And the other "evidence" that is used is to show pictures of dead bodies. Again, that is not proof. This is what is known as "emotional" propaganda. It makes no sense whatsoever for Assad to launch a chemical attack in a region that he controls, and in a war that he is winning. It does make sense for the rebels backed by Saudi Arabia to stage a chemical attack, to help enlist support from the West to turn the tide of the war in their favor. Rebels who happen to be supported by Al-Qaeda terrorists.
So for those of you who are busy getting their children ready for school, keep in mind that there are many children that are unable to go to school. They are living in tents. And in Syria, the schools are being filled with Syrian military personnel to avoid getting hit by a tomahawk missile.
WESTERN MILITARY MOTIVE
The West has an ulterior motive in this: beyond the chemical weapon issue, they would like to see the rebels win the war. This is not just a civil war, it is a proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran. The U.S. privately supports the rebels because they want to see Assad go. The long term military objective? Control of oil resources. From Syrian Oil And Gas: Little-Known Facts on Syria’s Energy Resources And Russia's Help:
Syria possessed 2.5 billion barrels of crude oil as of January 2013, which makes it the largest proved reserve of crude oil in the eastern Mediterranean according to the Oil & Gas Journal estimate, besides Iraq.But that is not all. From Oil and Gas find offshore Syria motive for US Israeli mercenary uprising and bloodshed in Syria:
The U.S. Geological Survey reported that the Levant Basin, which covers Israel, Syria, Lebanon, Cyprus and Palestine, contains around 122 trillion cubic feet of gas and at least 1.7 billion barrels of oil.Most wars are not random. Most are staged in advance. Staged wars then require a "pretext" to get the war started:
On March 2nd, 2007 retired general of the United States Army Wesley Clark revealed that the US government had planned just 10 days after 9/11 to attack seven countries in five years, “starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran”. As George W Bush is quoted as saying “Mission Accomplished” for Iraq, Lebanon, Sudan, Somalia and Libya. Only 2 more to go – Syria and Iran.Remember the Vietnam War? The pretext for that war was an attack in the Gulf on Tonkin - an attack that never occurred. They lied. Remember the Second Gulf War against Iraq? That was based on a supposed link with the attack of September 11 (false) and on false intelligence reports of weapons of mass destruction. They lied again.
WHO IS USING CHEMICAL WEAPONS IN SYRIA?
Now for some truth. Who launched chemical weapons in Syria? Lets talk about some facts. Facts that the western media will not tell you. How about this one: Russia gave UN 100-page report in July blaming Syrian rebels for Aleppo sarin attack. In March of 2013, Syrian rebels made use of Sarin gas in an attack on Aleppo:
Russia said its investigation of the March 19 incident was conducted under strict protocols established by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, the international agency that governs adherence to treaties prohibiting the use of chemical weapons. It said samples that Russian technicians had collected had been sent to OPCW-certified laboratories in Russia.Evidence points to Syrian rebels making use of the sarin gas:
“The Russian report is specific,” the ministry statement said. “It is a scientific and technical document.”
The Russian statement said Russian officials had broken the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons’ code of silence on such probes only because Western nations appear to be “preparing the ground for military action” in retaliation for the Aug. 21 incident.
The statement’s summary of the report said that neither the munitions nor the poison gas in the Khan al Asal attack appeared to fit what is possessed by the Syrian government. The statement said Russian investigators studied the site, sent the materials they found to study to the Russian laboratories of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, and followed agreed-upon United Nations investigation standards.Not only is there an intelligence report, there is video showing the rebels launching the chemical attack against Aleppo in March:
According to the statement, the report said the shell “was not regular Syrian army ammunition but was an artisan-type similar to unguided rocket projectiles produced in the north of Syria by the so-called gang ‘Bashair An-Nasr.’”
The Russian analysis found soil and shell samples contained a sarin gas “not synthesized in an industrial environment,” the statement said. The report said the chemical mix did not appear to be a modern version of the deadly agent but was closer to those “used by Western states for producing chemical weapons during World War II.”
Instead they are talking about an attack that took place on August 21, 2013. So who launched that attack? According to rebel witnesses, the sarin gas was given to them by Saudi Arabia. Some did not know they were chemical weapons. From Syrians In Ghouta Claim Saudi-Supplied Rebels Behind Chemical Attack:
...from numerous interviews with doctors, Ghouta residents, rebel fighters and their families, a different picture emerges. Many believe that certain rebels received chemical weapons via the Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, and were responsible for carrying out the dealing gas attack.So there you go. Not only are rebel forces in Syria making use of chemical weapons, Saudi Arabia is supplying them with weapons. According to this witness testimony, the attack of August 21 had nothing to do with the Assad government. Not only that, it was the intelligence agency of Saudi Arabia that first brought attention to the supposed use of sarin gas by Assad to Washington:
“My son came to me two weeks ago asking what I thought the weapons were that he had been asked to carry,” said Abu Abdel-Moneim, the father of a rebel fighting to unseat Assad, who lives in Ghouta.
Abdel-Moneim said his son and 12 other rebels were killed inside of a tunnel used to store weapons provided by a Saudi militant, known as Abu Ayesha, who was leading a fighting battalion. The father described the weapons as having a “tube-like structure” while others were like a “huge gas bottle.”
Ghouta townspeople said the rebels were using mosques and private houses to sleep while storing their weapons in tunnels.
Abdel-Moneim said his son and the others died during the chemical weapons attack. That same day, the militant group Jabhat al-Nusra, which is linked to al-Qaeda, announced that it would similarly attack civilians in the Assad regime’s heartland of Latakia on Syria’s western coast, in purported retaliation.
“They didn’t tell us what these arms were or how to use them,” complained a female fighter named ‘K.’ “We didn’t know they were chemical weapons. We never imagined they were chemical weapons.”
“When Saudi Prince Bandar gives such weapons to people, he must give them to those who know how to handle and use them,” she warned. She, like other Syrians, do not want to use their full names for fear of retribution.
A well-known rebel leader in Ghouta named ‘J’ agreed. “Jabhat al-Nusra militants do not cooperate with other rebels, except with fighting on the ground. They do not share secret information. They merely used some ordinary rebels to carry and operate this material,” he said.
“We were very curious about these arms. And unfortunately, some of the fighters handled the weapons improperly and set off the explosions,” ‘J’ said.
According to U.K.’s Independent newspaper, it was Prince Bandar’s intelligence agency that first brought allegations of the use of sarin gas by the regime to the attention of Western allies in February.Before the attack of August 21, in July Syrian forces seized a rebel lab near Damascus. In the lab there were poisonous chemicals that had been given to the rebels from Saudi Arabia:
The Wall Street Journal recently reported that the CIA realized Saudi Arabia was “serious” about toppling Assad when the Saudi king named Prince Bandar to lead the effort.
“They believed that Prince Bandar, a veteran of the diplomatic intrigues of Washington and the Arab world, could deliver what the CIA couldn’t: planeloads of money and arms, and, as one U.S. diplomat put it, wasta, Arabic for under-the-table clout,” it said.
Bandar has been advancing Saudi Arabia’s top foreign policy goal, WSJ reported, of defeating Assad and his Iranian and Hezbollah allies.
To that aim, Bandar worked Washington to back a program to arm and train rebels out of a planned military base in Jordan.
This news report came in JULY of 2013 - the report says the rebels had been planning to use the chemicals in an attack on Damascus. Moreover, Syrian forces found over 200 barrels of chemical weapons - enough to wipe out an entire city. Now, for the August attack, satellite imagery shows that shells were launched from Douma, north-east of Damascus, a rebel held territory. A Syrian activist there reports that they even know who gave the order - an Al-Qaeda operative aiding the rebels:
From Evidence: Syria gas attack work of U.S. allies there was a phone call intercept between a Syrian rebel and an official from Saudi Arabia, in which the rebel stated they had used chemical weapons:
On Aug. 23, LiveLeak.com hosted an audio recording of a phone call broadcast on Syrian TV between a terrorist affiliated with the rebel civilian militia “Shuhada al-Bayada Battalion” in Homs, Syria, and his Saudi Arabian boss, identified as “Abulbasit.” The phone call indicates rebel-affiliated terrorists in Syria, not the Assad government, launched the chemical weapons attack in Deir Ballba in the Homs, Syria, countryside.And look - the United Nations itself - the U.N. - states that the chemical attacks in Syria were most likely done by the Syrian rebels, NOT the government of Assad. See this BBC News report:
The terrorist said his group, which comprises 200 terrorists escaped from al-Bayadah to al-Daar al-Kabera through a tunnel, needed to buy weapons to attack Homs.
The Saudi financier, who was in Cairo, asked the Syrian terrorists to give details about his group and how it will receive the money. The Saudi admitted his support to terrorists in Daraa and the Damascus countryside. The Syrian terrorist told him that one of the achievements of his “battalion” was the use of chemical weapons in Deir Ballba.
The recorded phone call disclosed the cooperation between two terrorist groups in Syria to bring two bottles of Sarin Gas from the Barzeh neighborhood in Damascus.
In Turkey, rebel forces associated with Al-Nusra were caught carrying Sarin gas into Syria:
So, where is the evidence that Assad ordered the chemical attack on August 21? There is no evidence. All the report says is that a chemical attack occurred. Intelligence analysts call the association with Assad "tenuous", "flimsy", and they are "puzzled" as to why he would do that. When pressed for evidence, the U.S. government says that is "classified." Its classified because they do not have any facts to support going to war against Syria. ANYONE can go on the internet and find plenty of evidence that Syrian rebels - backed by Al-Qaeda terrorists and Saudi Arabia - have been given chemical weapons. Even Fox News cannot hide this fact: in Pro-strike lawmakers mum as startling videos surface of Syrian rebels they say this:
Lawmakers who were early champions of a U.S. strike on Assad regime targets in Syria have stayed mum as video clips emerge appearing to show opposition soldiers both killing unarmed men and indicating they have possession of chemical weapons.
The latest, a video on InfoWars.com, purported to show a rebel militant in Syria claiming to have chemical weapons, and saying he's willing to target women and children.
So here we are. The U.S. Government is asking the people - and Congress - to support military strikes against Syria in order to help Al-Qaeda terrorists, who are willing to use chemical weapons against women and children. For the intelligence agencies who provided this so-called "evidence" to the U.S. Government, I ask one question: ARE YOU A BUNCH OF IDIOTS? No, you aren't idiots, at least when you have your thinking cap on. You know exactly what you are doing. Do you realize the long term repercussions? Have you heard of "blow-back"?
WHO IS SAUDI PRINCE BANDAR?
Syrian rebel forces in Ghouta stated that Saudi Prince Bandar was responsible for the supply of chemical weapons. So who is this guy? Well this gets very interesting. From 1983 to 2005 he was the Saudi ambassador to the United States. Then in 2012, his role changed. From wikipedia:
Bandar bin Sultan was appointed Director General of Saudi Intelligence Agency on 19 July 2012 replacing Muqrin bin Abdulaziz. Although no official reason for the appointment was provided, the appointment occurred after growing tension between Sunnis and Shiites in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. It was also considered as a move of Saudi Arabia to display more aggressive foreign policy given the regional challenges that comes from Iran and Syria. Prince Bandar is also a member of the Military Service Council.
So in the independent assessment - before this chemical weapon outbreak - is that he is in charge of overseeing support for the Syrian rebels. He is a good family friend of the Bush family. During the Reagan administration, he was involved in the Iran-Contra affair: where U.S. officials agreed to give arms to Iran to obtain financing for terrorists in Central America:
He was exposed for his involvement in the Iran-Contra scandal. He had arranged $32 million in Saudi financing for the Nicaraguan Contras.
Here is another well known but unpublicized fact: it is very likely that elements of the government of Saudi Arabia were involved in assisting the hijackers to accomplish their attack on the World Trade Center on Septembe 11, 2001. From Was the Saudi Government Involved in the 9/11 Terror Attacks? -
Since 2002, when former senator Bob Graham led the Joint Intelligence Committee Inquiry (JICI) into the 9/11 attacks, he has insisted that members of the Saudi government played a role. But he’s had a hard time getting others to listen. “There’s no question in my mind that the Saudi government was involved in 9/11,” the Florida Democrat tells The Daily Beast. “But there’s still so much we don’t know. Unfortunately, many Americans seem to have lost interest.”
So what facts do we have? What about this:
The FBI-led investigation in Sarasota reportedly focused on Saudi millionaire Abdulaziz al-Hijji and his wife, Anoud. Their upscale home was owned by Anoud al-Hijji’s father, Esam Ghazzawi, an adviser to Prince Fahd bin Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, the nephew of King Fahd.
The al-Hijji family reportedly moved out of their Sarasota house and left the country abruptly in the weeks before 9/11, leaving behind three luxury cars and personal belongings including clothing, furniture, and fresh food. They also left the swimming-pool water circulating.
...The news reports have said that the gated community’s visitor logs and photos of license tags showed that vehicles driven by several of the future hijackers, as well as other members of al Qaeda, had visited the al-Hijji home. The reports are based on an anonymous “counterterrorism agent” and Larry Berberich, the former head of security at the gated community where the al-Hijjis lived.
Unfortunately, lawmakers keep hitting a brick wall. When probing the extent of involvement of Saudi Arabia, they start to hit documents that are classified. Why do I bring up the attack of September 11, 2001? We are now seeing the exact same behavior pattern: a terrorist attack is created in order to get the U.S. Military - and the public - involved in a war in the Middle East. And here we are, on the 12th anniversary of the September 11 attack.
THE "TALKING POINTS" OF PRESIDENT OBAMA
Do not be fooled by the propaganda they are going to spout in the media in the coming days. Here is what they are going to say:
1. The U.N. Report "proves beyond a reasonable doubt" that chemical weapons were used in the attack of August 21. What THEY WILL NOT SAY is that there is no evidence linking it to Assad. THEY WILL NOT SAY that the United Nations thinks that the rebels launched the attack.
2. They will implicitly blame the government of Assad without providing any proof for that assertion. They will completely ignore the evidence that the Syrian rebels launched the attack.
3. "We cannot wait" and "we must act now" and "not acting will endanger the security interest of the United States" and "if we do not act now terrorists will acquire chemical weapons and attack us."
4. It is OK to approve military strikes because all we will do is launch a few Tomahawk missiles which will do nothing but exacerbate the civil war. There will be no ground troops. THEY WILL NOT SAY that there is now a buildup of U.S. troops in the surrounding region.
And to top it off, they will show dead bodies or people suffering from the attack of sarin gas. This is not factual evidence, it is emotional propaganda. Yes, a chemical attack occurred. There is not enough hard evidence as to who did it.
THE PROPER RESPONSE?
If U.S. policy was truly serious about limiting the chances of chemical weapons, they would cordon off the borders to Syria. They would stop arm shipments to the rebels. This of course would not only help stop the use of chemical weapons but would help end the civil war. But that is not acceptable as the U.S. and Saudi Arabia (and Qatar) are the ones aiding the rebels. This has nothing to do with stopping the use of chemical weapons. In fact, it encourages the use of terrorism and chemical weapons in order to start a war. Who is motivated more than any other group to launch a chemical weapon attack? The Syrian rebels. Who else benefits from our involvement? Al-Qaeda terrorists. Who benefits from a conflict between the U.S. and Russia? Saudi Arabia. The irony of this is just unbelievable.
Any evidence regarding the use of chemical weapons should be used in a war crimes trial. REGARDLESS of which side did it. If a U.S. ally did it, they should be held responsible. There should be no political preferences when it comes to the horrible use of weapons of mass destruction.
If I were to say one thing that President Obama did that was right is that he passed the decision to the U.S. Congress to vote on it. Under the U.S. Constitution, the U.S. Congress has the right to declare war. But now, when they see they may lose the vote, some news media outlets are stating that the U.S. administration will ignore the vote and attack anyway. When asked what will they do should they lose the vote, they do not answer. In other words, the vote is useless. Should they do this, it will further undermine the U.S. Constitution. It is a step away from democracy, and a step towards martial law. The U.S. Constitution has already been undermined by the U.S. Patriot Act.
Looking at international politics, things are not always black and white. We are all pawns in a bigger game of chess, where the true players are hidden behind the scenes. Even the U.S. President is a pawn in this game.
SYRIA MONITORED BY OTHER VISITORS
Earlier in this blog I showed video evidence of UFOs appearing over the nuclear reactor of Japan in Fukushima, BEFORE it was hit by a tsunami. As it turns out, there are UFOs which have taken an interest in this civil war in Syria. Here is a UFO which appeared over Damascus, in the week after the attack:
Here is a scene from The Matrix (1999) again, which shows a scene very similar to the attack on the World Trade Center of September 11. I discussed it earlier on The Secret Space Program and Hidden Intelligence
And as we approach the 12th anniversary of the September 11 attack, here is Neo's passport again which expired on September 11, 2001:
