The Arab Spring for Dummies, Syria Chemical Weapons edition

21 October 2015 update: a Turkish news outlet reports Turkey had been responsible for a false flag sarin gas attack blamed on Assad, according to two members of the Turkish parliament.

With the new alleged Chemical weapons attacks, RT (Russian TV) sensibly brings in British and American independent expert assessments but far more interesting to me is the fact of France 24 TV pointing the finger (the guy came across as a professional actor, scripted) at the Assad regime for refusing access to an onsite UN inspection team to the chemical attack site. Now, how is it the Assad regime is supposed to grant access to the site that happens to be in rebel controlled suburb of Damascus? Oh, and NO mention of the detail of rebel control of the chemical attack site by France 24, creating the clear impression solely Assad is blocking access. BBC parrots a similar line, BBC at least mentions in passing rebel control but far the greater emphasis is on Assad’s government supposedly denying access to the site they do not control. Then BBC airs a Syrian rebel ‘witness’ interview where the son of two chemical attack victims explains how he heard a bang, came downstairs to discover his parents convulsing and dying from the chemical attack but there is no asking him or questioning how it is he is apparently just fine, healthy and normal following what should have been his immediate and onsite exposure. WTF? I have military chemical weapons training, this is patent bullshit. I also have psychological operations training, and this is what I had just witnessed on BBC. In USA media the New York Times (in print) echoes the French line on Syria. Meanwhile the rebel political leadership in exile states the UN investigating team is welcome to the attack site but there is a complicating detail: they do not control the attack site either. The site is under control of independent Al Qaida aligned rebel brigades, the more effective opposition. But the disingenuous announcement by rebels who do not control the site gives the impression the ‘Syrian opposition’ is cooperating. Assad’s danger in allowing access is provision of mocked up evidence by the ‘opposition.’

On 27 August, the New York Times reports the UN investigating team is allowed to cross the combatant lines to investigate. In al-Nusra controlled area, the investigators come under sniper fire while escorted by Syrian security forces to the area. What is NOT mentioned is they had to leave the area after ½ hour. Real investigating is not going to be possible, and the investigators being allowed access results in the following media show; the New York Times employs a psychological operation where The UN team is reported to have initiated its investigation but never mentioning it had to be aborted in 30 minutes time. Interwoven in the same pages it is an expanded article reporting overwhelming and conclusive proof the Assad  regime has perpetrated the attack. This is classic psychological ploy leaving the reader with subliminal impression conflating the UN investigation with finding of Assad regime guilt. Reinforcing this mocked up conclusion are photo layouts describing the horror of the innocents experience. It will never be reported by the Times previous UN investigation in a separate attack had pointed to the Syrian opposition. And the rush is on to military intervention before any professional, impartial conclusions can be drawn by a forensics team only scratching the surface of what had actually happened.

On 28 August INTELNEWS.ORG reports Israel will supply evidence Assad’s brother commanded the Syrian army unit that perpetrated the chemical attack. That is really quite convenient. So, why aren’t they supplying this ‘evidence’ as an exhibit for the UN team in a proper investigation as opposed to giving it to the USA, Britain and France as justification to launch military operations at Syria? Apparently because the UN team has no mandate to determine responsibility, only whether chemicals had been used, also very convenient since a previous investigation had pointed to the rebels as the culprit. And with the Israelis coughing up the evidence, Germany, who is historically lukewarm when it comes to blatant NATO chicaneries, will roll over and play dead on the issue, these people think out every angle.

On 29 August British prime minister David Cameron, citing intelligence, admits to parliament there is no conclusive evidence Assad’s government perpetrated the attack. This is revealing of Obama’s political lies insisting the Americans are in possession of conclusive proof of Assad regime guilt, as the British and Americans share intelligence. Meanwhile the British parliament refuses to back any attack on Syria and Cameron’s hands are tied.

On 30 August, Obama has by now, with international support among his allies either crumbling or flat out rebelling, backed off to a point of ‘reiterating’ a ‘red line’ with a ‘wrist slap’ attack to ‘remind’ Assad he dare not exercise impunity and immediate regime change is off the table. So if indeed the chemical attack were a ruse by, or on behalf of, the so-called ‘rebels’, it has been somewhat successful were any attack to go forward and this is begging for more chemical attacks, benefiting Al Nusra (Al Qaida.) France continues to back Obama on attacking Syria.

Late developments on 30 August  (Central Europe Time) include NATO Secretary General ‘fog’ Rasmussen announcing (it would seem with much regret) NATO has dropped out; meaning a majority of NATO nations have blocked involvement and the USA-France neo-liberal alliance of Obama-Hollande are increasingly isolated, the question remains of whether France will be reduced to cheerleader to a USA solo-action.

No mention is made in mainstream western media of American government intelligence sources have leaked the news the secret report behind John Kerry’s ‘proof’ is by no means conclusive and American professionals’ assessment pointing to possible rebel responsibility for the chemical attack had been quashed and excluded from two reports, the secret report as well as John Kerry’s whitewash fed to the western press.

No mainstream western press mentions Israeli intelligence is responsible for the ‘electronic intercepts’ pinning the attack on Assad’s brother commanding the accused Syrian army units, but it comes out elsewhere this was ‘low level’ chatter and in no way can be traced back up the chain of command to Syrian army commanders, directly contradicting Kerry. Israel meanwhile claims it is completely uninvolved .. and so will be ‘defending itself’ and testing the USA commitment to defend Isarel were the fighting to escalate regionally. This raises a distinct possibility of a MOSSAD operation where Israeli agents staged a conversation for intercept. Why? Israeli prime minister ‘Bibi’ Netanyahu has been trying for years to get the USA’s backing for a war with Iran without result. With Iran committed to the defense of Syria, this may be a strategy the Israeli right wing has implemented.

By 31 August, Obama has been reduced to a snarling dog with its tail between legs, stating he has decided Syria “should” be attacked, avoiding the more certain “will” be attacked and has passed the buck to congress.  If congress says no, then he is off the hook for his big mouth drawing ‘red lines.’ The only question after is said and done would be if, and when, the next chemical attack blamed on Assad will be launched to rekindle world outrage in pursuit of covert agenda.

Question, would the Assad regime launch a chemical attack when they have the recent momentum rolling back the rebels, and a chemical attack by his regime is likely to bring in NATO air power on the side of the rebels? It makes no sense, as pointed out by an RT guest expert.

On the other hand, would Al Nusra (Al Qaida) stage a chemical attack if it would bring NATO fire power in supporting their forces? This is by far more likely, also pointed out by the RT guest expert. If there were a resulting attack by the USA on Assad, this would encourage more chemical incidents.

A third and the most likely option is, one or more unscrupulous intelligence agencies perpetrating a false flag attack to undermine Assad’s position. With the reaction coming from the USA and France, likely another attack could be staged.

Meanwhile, as NATO members USA, France and Britain’s media whip up a frenzy demanding Assad be punished and point to the very frenzy they are whipping up as international furor demanding Assad be punished with severe and rapid action. Russia calls for a through and impartial investigation but this item not mentioned in western press which rather points to Russia as stonewalling any action to punish a chemical weapons criminal Assad.

The Russian strategy appears to be simply present the facts; on account of the USA & NATO is so entirely corrupt in these matters, facts are all that should be necessary to counter the criminal policies of the west in the public forum. The USA and NATO strategy is to pound the public with lies in the belief if you misstate the facts often enough, misstated facts will become the public reality.

The Logical Conclusion:

Western media is under control of professional intelligence agency information operations or their corporate equals, milking anti-Assad propaganda generated by a false flag attack blaming Assad for an act perpetrated from territory controlled by Al Nusra (Al Qaida.) The practical result is, NATO members USA, Britain and France are allied with Al Nusra (Al Qaida.) The USA also has played in this alliance with opening the door to, and then looking the other way as Arab allies (Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait) have shoveled weapons to Al Nusra (Al Qaida.) Meanwhile MOSSAD and CIA paramilitary are training Syrian Rebel commandos in elite special operations skills in the border area with Jordan and NATO’s Turkey is onboard as a CIA staging route for logistical support importing weapons for the rebels for the past two years at minimum. Jordan plays in this role as well.

The neo-liberal/neo-conservative alliance, Obama, Cameron, Hollande, is knocking off Syria as a stepping stone to knocking off Iran and that is Israel’s short term obsession in the affair. A larger, joint neo-liberal/neo-conservative goal is isolating and encircling Russia who does not play to the advantage of western corporate board interests. The marionettes pulling the strings? Bilderberg, Council on Foreign Relations and a whole plethora of related, corporate think-tanks propped up with $$ from corporate boards with names across the spectrum of the alphabet; Chevron, Monsanto, Dow Chemical, Du Pont, Martin-Marietta, Lockheed, British Petroleum, Exxon-Mobile, Royal Dutch Shell, Halliburton, Raytheon, General Dynamics, and the list could go on for page after page.

The Illogical Conclusion:

Somehow these people believe they can play a colonial game that has gone on for centuries as though the world had not come into a nuclear age. Certain western democracies’ intelligence agencies stand by and/or participate in murder innocents by chemical attack without a qualm and/or allow it to be perpetrated by Al Qaida (and if necessary blamed on Al Qaida, a fallback position) in pursuit of corporate pecuniary interests. In the name of ‘human rights’ and ‘democracy’ 100,000 and more Syrians have been killed by fanning the flames of sectarian violence and pouring weapons into a deliberately inflamed inter-communal circumstance of violence and somehow this is supposedly a necessary thing for our world, our way of life and the pursuit of civilization.

The Consequence

The neo-conservative vision of Armageddon comes out the winner if this is allowed to go on. The Sunni ‘Awakening Councils’ created and trained in Iraq by David Patraeus that morphed into Al Qaida brigades and are presently represented in Al Nusra, will almost certainly prevail in Syria, setting off a second civil war there that absolutely will require intervention. Al Nusra veterans are returning to Iraq and intensifying the civil war there; set up by none other than David Patraeus, as his Christian Al Qaida “Officers Christian Fellowship” controlling the Pentagon pits their religious vision of an end times world conflagration set in the Middle East against a radicalized Shia Islam’s ayatollahs vision of end times world conflagration set in the middle east, each with a returning messiah. It doesn’t get much more stupid than this folks. All on account of greed, narcissism, resultant fanaticism and its associated lust for power. Meanwhile, Germany, the one NATO country that has seen similar sort of degenerate madness control its past, has leadership more concerned with selling tanks to Indonesia than making public any honest intelligence that should stop this madness in its tracks. Merkel is exceedingly shallow, myopic, cowardly and narcissistic, in short everything the world does NOT need in a leader (which, more or less, describes German politicians as a class.)

In this circumstance, Russia is not going to bite on Obama’s push for a drastic reduction in nuclear weapons on account of when Medvedev was president, Medvedev offered civil compromises based in solid principles of international law to NATO & the USA, and NATO & the USA gave him the middle finger; stabbed Medvedev in the back on Libya, the USA’s international Chamber of Commerce has been hijacking the former Soviet republics economies and the likes of Exxon-Mobile personalities, Kissinger and Cheney, sit on the boards of directors. On top of this, you had CIA manipulating Russian ‘human rights’ and ‘democracy’ organizations, resulting in Putin’s clampdown on liberalizing elements in Russia. Medvedev was the good cop. Now you’ve got Putin with all of the backbone needed to be the bad cop, and it is our western democracies own goddamn fault, we’re fucked so long as our leaders continue this direction, many millions will die and that’s the end of today’s story.
