Israel Poised to Attack Syria?

 

Israel Poised to Attack Syria?

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Israel partners with Washington's regional wars. A separate article said America and Britain may attack Syria in days. 

 

Perhaps other NATO partners and Israel will be involved. Hawkish Israeli comments suggest it. On Sunday, Netanyahu said Israel's "finger is on the pulse" of what's ongoing. It need be, it'll move to the trigger.

Pentagon Preparing for War on Syria

Washington's rage for war won't quit. It sacrifices truth. Big Lies substitute. Syria bears no responsibility for Wednesday's incident. Convincing evidence blames insurgents.

 

They used chemical weapons multiple times before. They've been caught red-handed. Don't expect media scoundrels to explain. They feature biased reporting. They ignore hard facts. They do so consistently.

Selling War on Syria

 

Selling War on Syria

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Waging war requires manufacturing consent. Public opinion's manipulated to do so. Big Lies substitute for full and accurate reporting.

 

Truth is systematically avoided. Americans get a steady diet of managed news misinformation. On August 20, Al Jazeera America (AJAM) debuted. Qatar's monarchy controls programming.

Will Obama pull a Bush WMD Scam in Syria?

A rush to judgment is a rush to war. 

obamaheadIt's put up or shut up time for President Barack Obama.

Will the president wait for the completion of an objective study to determine the source of a chemical weapons in an attack on a Damascus suburb on August?  Or, will he fix the results, declare the Syrian government guilty, and unleash some form of military attack?   If he chooses the later option, the similarities to the George W. Bush WMD lies will be too close to ignore.

Added to Obama's refusal to get Wall Street crooks prosecuted, his weak efforts on jobs, the NSA spying on all citizens coupled with his outright denial of the effort, Obama's presidency will lack even the most rudimentary form of legitimacy.

Obama has been pressured to attack Syria since the start of the rebellion against the government of Bashar al-Assad began 2011.  Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton traveled the world demanding that "Assad must go." Others in the perpetual war faction have lent their voices to the chorus.

“Wag the Dog” – The Sequel Set in Syria

By George Galloway

Over the last couple of weeks a western-backed (and armed) military junta slaughtered many hundreds of Egyptians in broad daylight live on television. The death toll, still concealed, may have been thousands.

The west confined itself to disapproving words and calls for “restraint” on “both sides” – even though the victims were unarmed.

In Syria hundreds of people have just been slaughtered in circumstances which are entirely unclear, and the west is about to launch (in our case without parliamentary approval with the prime minister acting from a beach in Cornwall) a military attack with entirely unforseen consequences on Damascus.

There is a “Wag the Dog” element about this, and indeed the war of President Clinton’s penis satirised in that masterful award-winning movie has already proved a handy diversion from Egypt before its even started.

It is entirely implausible that the Syrian regime chose the moment of the arrival of a UN chemical weapons inspection team to launch a chemical attack on an insurgency already suffering reverse after reverse on the battlefield and steadily losing international support with each new video showing them eating the hearts of slain soldiery and sawing of the heads of Christian priests with bread knives.

In the absence of conclusive evidence one would have to believe that the Assad regime was mad as well as bad to have launched such a chemical attack at a time when it is in less danger than it has been for almost a year. I do not believe that Bashar is mad.

There is ample evidence that the Syrian rag-tag-and-bobtail insurgency, dominated by the most extreme fanatic franchises of Al Qaeda, has access to chemical weapons, indeed any weapons the rag-tag-and-bobtail coalition behind them can get to them.

The US has a long history of using such weapons – and worse – and not just in SE Asia. In the destruction of Fallujah in next door Iraq they slaughtered thousands with the same kind of cocktails.

Israel regularly shares its own chemical weapons stockpile with their neighbours in Gaza. Check the pictures of phosphorous gas raining down upon the UN schools and hospitals in Operation Cast Lead if you don’t believe me.

Britain introduced chemical weapons to the middle east in the first place, dropping gas on the “uncivilised tribes” of Iraq in the 1920s and wondering in parliament “what all the fuss was about”.

Does anyone believe that the foul dictatorships of the Gulf – like Saudi Arabia – wouldn’t give the Syrian rebels some of their chemical weapons? Especially if the purpose was to draw the big powers into the war?

Does anyone believe that a Syrian rebel army whose vile atrocities abound on YouTube wouldn’t use them, for the same purpose?

So now we wait for the summer-surprise attack on yet another Arab country by the former colonial powers. Another summer, another Muslim country under murderous bombardment by the last people on the planet whose motives are trusted by anyone in the Muslim world.

Meanwhile, the money, and the weapons, keep on flowing to the Egyptian junta. The blood of some people, as always, turning out to be of far greater consequence than the blood of others…

An Appeal Against Attacking Syria

www.peacepeople.com

Mairead Maguire, Nobel peace laureate, today appealed to the Rt. Hon. William Hague, British Foreign Minister, and M. Laurent Fabius, French Foreign Minister, to stop calling for military action against Syria which, she said, will only lead the Middle East into even more violence and bloodshed for its people.

Maguire said:

Arming rebels and authorizing military action by USA/NATO forces will not solve the problem facing Syria, but indeed could lead to the death of thousands of Syrians, the breaking-up of Syria, and it falling under the control of violent fundamentalist jihadist forces. It will mean the further fleeing of Syrians into surrounding countries which will themselves  become destabilised. The entire Middle East will become unstable and violence will spiral out of control.

Lying About Syria, and the Lying Liars Who Lie About the Lying

UPDATE: Flyers you can use to oppose this war: Color PDF, Black and White PDF.

"U.S. prepares for possible retaliatory strike against Syria," announces a Los Angeles Times headline, even though Syria has not attacked the United States or any of its occupied territories or imperial forces and has no intention to do so.

Imminent US War on Syria?

 

Imminent US War on Syria?

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Syria is Washington's war. It was planned years ago. It's about regime change. America wants pro-Western puppet leaders replacing independent ones.

 

Washington doesn't launch conflicts to quit. US-enlisted death squads are no match against Syria's military. They're being routed. 

 

False Flag Syrian Chemical Weapons Attack

 

False Flag Syrian Chemical Weapons Attack

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

False flags are an American tradition. They're an Israeli tradition. They're used strategically. They reflect Big Lies. 

 

Merriam-Webster calls them "deliberate gross distortion(s) of the truth used especially as a propaganda tactic."

 

Drumbeat for War on Syria

 

Drumbeat for War on Syria

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Whenever America goes to war or plans one, media scoundrels march in lockstep. Truth is the first casualty. Managed news misinformation substitutes. 

 

It happens every time. It's standard practice. It's no different this time. Facts on the ground don't matter. They're systematically ignored.

The Syrian Chemical Weapons Use Canard

 

The Syrian Chemical Weapons Use Canard

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Throughout months of conflict, Assad faced repeated accusations of chemical weapons use. No evidence whatever suggests it. 

 

Clear evidence suggests otherwise. Wrongful accusations persist. They ring hollow. They lack credibility. It doesn't matter. They repeat with disturbing regularity.

Will or Won't Obama Attack Syria?

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

US regime change plans are longstanding. War was planned years ago. US-supported proxy fighters wage it.

 

Obama didn't initiate conflict to end it. At issue now is what's next. Insurgent invaders are no match for Syria's superior military. Guerrilla fighting can continue interminably.

US-Backed Death Squads Massacre Hundreds of Syrian Kurds

 

US-Backed Death Squads Massacre Hundreds of Syrian Kurds

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Western leaders are silent. Media scoundrels ignore what demands headlines. Cold-blooded murder doesn't matter. It's too insignificant to report. Managed news misinformation substitutes.

 

Syria is America's war. It was planned years ago. Death squads were recruited. Al Qaeda, Al Nusra, and other terrorists are Washington's shock troops.

Syrian Conflict Resolution: Stamp Out Terror

 

Syrian Conflict Resolution: Stamp Out Terror

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Previous articles explained. America wants unchallenged dominance. It's ravaging Middle East/North Africa/Eurasian countries. It's doing so to achieve it.

 

It's destroying them one at a time. It's committing mass murder and destruction. It calls it a small price to pay. It wants the region colonized. It wants it balkanized.
