Intervju med Vanessa Beeley som just har varit i Syrien.

What’s really going on in Aleppo? Are Assad and Putin exterminating the population for sport? Is it a war against US-backed ”moderates”? That is what the mainstream media would have us believe. We speak with Vanessa Beeley, a journalist who just returned from Aleppo for the real story.

larouche.se – Slaget om Aleppo

Media beskriver den syriska regeringens attacker Östra Aleppo som om de enbart är ägnade att bomba civila. Man kräver inte att de civila skall tillåtas komma ur Östra Aleppo. Den syriska regeringen har öppnat korridorer för civila, och de oppositionella som vill lägga ned vapnen, men då har de civila beskjutits av Al Qaidas terrorister och bara vid ett till fälle dödades 26 civila. Detta berättar den amerikanske delstatssenatorn från Virginia Richard Black i en intervju med Jeff Steinberg från EIR den 28.9. Black pekar på att den totalt dominerande gruppen stridande i Östra Aleppo är Al Qaida, som länge kallat sig Nushrafronten.

Funneling anti-aircraft missiles to guys who idolize Osama bin Laden — another bright idea by the super thoughtful and intelligent American empire-builders that is sure not to ever result in any blowback whatsoever. How long until the first airliner in western Europe is brought down with these same weapons?
The psychopaths running the American deep state are so petulant and narcissistic they would ramp up the terror threat against Americans and Europeans just because they’re angry that Russians are beating their terrorists.

rt.com – Syrian Army seizes Aleppo’s central district from terrorists – state media

“The army retook control of the entire al-Farafirah district northwest of the Aleppo citadel after neutralizing many terrorists. Units are now demining the area,” AFP quoted a military source as saying.
After their retreat, the terrorists left munitions and weapons, including large-caliber machine guns, RIA Novosti reports, citing another source with knowledge of the matter.
“We have been able for the first time in several years to move the front in Aleppo,” the Russian news agency’s source said.
It added that the Syrian Army suffered no losses in the operation, which began in the early hours of Tuesday.
The district of Al-Farafirah is located north-west of Aleppo’s main historical landmark, the Citadel – a large medieval fortified palace in the center of the old city. Syrian troops are also demining in other districts in Aleppo, including that of al-Ramusi.
The area, liberated about three weeks ago, is considered extremely important since it is used by humanitarian convoys to deliver food and medicine to people in the war-ravaged city.

proletaren.se – Vittnesmål om flygattack mot hjälpkonvoj ifrågasätts

proletaren.se – Vilka är de verkliga krigsivrarna i Aleppo?

Men vad ska Syriens ledning göra när den väpnade ”oppositionen” förkastar vapenvila och en förhandlingslösning? Vad ska Assadregeringen och dess ryska allierade göra när ”oppositionen” vill fortsätta kriget för en religiös stat tillsammans med al-Qaidaterrorister?
Att ge upp och svika den breda majoritet av syrierna som förkastar extremisternas bakåtsträvande intoleranta våldsstyre är inte ett alternativ.
Men det är klart att vägen till fred i Syrien skulle bli betydligt kortare, och att många liv skulle kunna räddas, om Nato-länderna och Gulfstaterna en gång för alla avbröt stödet till de väpnade grupperna.

Bra beskrivning av anledningen till den förnyade offensiven i västmedierna. Aleppo har stor betydelse för utgången av kriget i Syrien, när nu legokrigarna är under attack skriker västmedierna i högan sky.
Alexander Mercouris – Washington rages as Syrian Army wins back Aleppo

It is this US awareness of its own impotence as its Jihadi proteges in Aleppo face total defeat which accounts for all the angry rhetoric and cranking up of atrocity stories we have been seeing over the last week. These have now culminated in some typically furious denunciations of Russia by US ambassador Samantha Power on Sunday’s 25th September 2016 at the UN Security Council, over the course of which she actually accused Russia of ”barbarism”.
British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, in an unguarded comment for which he is probably already being taken to task, slipped the truth out during a television interview on Sunday 25th September 2016
”If you say to me the West is too impotent, I would have to agree. I would have to agree that, since we took those decisions in 2013, when those red lines were crossed,we have not really had a viable military response, or any kinetic response to what is going on. I don’t think there is any real appetite for such a thing.”
Johnson then went on to say that the only thing the West could do in this situation is to try to embarrass the Russians into calling a stop. He explained this by saying that ”the one thing the Russians respond to is adverse global public opinion”.
This explains all the current talk of war crimes, encompassing charges of (the unproved) Russian guilt for the attack on the relief convoy, complaints about the deliberate cutting off of Aleppo’s water supply, charges of the indiscriminate bombing of civilian areas of Aleppo, claims of the use of firebombs there etc. – all things which happen in Syria all the time, and which having been happening continuously there ever since the war started, but which are now being talked about as war crimes.

almasdarnews.com – US not willing to attack Nusra: Russian FM

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated on Monday that he cannot afford to have absolute trust towards the United States on the issue of its readiness to deal strikes against the terrorist organization Jabhat Al-Nusra.
”US Secretary of State John Kerry keeps saying that Jabhat Al-Nusra poses the same terrorist threat as the Islamic State (both outlawed in Russia),” Lavrov said.
”But Al-Nusra remains untouchable. This is a paradox. I don’t know whom I can trust. That I cannot trust them (the United States) one hundred percent is for certain.”

Mer som talar för att versionen om hjälpkonvojen som medierna var väldigt snabba att gå ut med inte stämmer, som väntat.

nyteknik.se – Tveksamt om bomber fälldes över hjälpkonvojen i Syrien

En svensk expert på militärteknik, som Ny Teknik talat med, har granskat bilder från händelsen på nätet och han avfärdar att bomber ska ha fällts.
– Det ser snarare ut som om styrkor på marken anfallit konvojen. Med tanke på att vi varken ser splitter- eller bombskador, så kan det vara så att handgranater använts, och att man tänt på lastbilarna med bensin eller annat eftersom flera av dem är utbrända, säger vapenkunnige personen, som inte vill ha sitt namn publicerat.

Alexander Mercouris – Making up the news: How the Western media misreported the Syrian convoy attack

Instead of making a real effort to find out the truth of what actually happened to the Syrian aid convoy the Western media preferred to repeat whatever the US and the Jihadis told them as if it was true.

John Kerry erkänner alltså här att de grupper som de stöder agerar tillsammans al Nusrat, dvs al Qaeda i Syrien.
presstv.ir – US policy on Syria exposed by Kerry as ‘a house of cards’

“It was also very importantly part of the plan, that when those efforts of cooperation commenced, Syrian warplanes would be prohibited from flying over areas where the legitimate opposition and al Nusrat were present, in order to give us the opportunity to work out the separation,” Kerry said.
“The significance of John Kerry’s slip cannot be overstated. He conceded, in terms that leave no room for doubt, that there is still no clear separation between the US backed insurgents whom the US led coalition hold out to the world as Syria’s ‘legitimate’ opposition and al Nusrat, al Qaeda’s franchise in Syria,” Grossman told Press TV on Friday.
“The recent ceasefire was not honored by either America’s proxies in Syria who, in continuing to carry out offensive military operations, professed to be fighting ISIL forces, or by the US-led coalition, which carried out deadly air strikes on Syrian government military positions as a cover for an ISIL ground attack which commenced as soon as the strikes were carried out,” he stated.
“When we consider John Kerry’s admission that opposition forces are still indistinguishable from al Qaeda forces, on the one hand, and that those same opposition forces were openly carrying out offensive operations ostensibly against terrorist forces during the recent ceasefire, on the other, the entire house of cards which has been peddled as the Atlantic World’s position on Syria, comes tumbling down exposing the deceit that it was from the start built on,” he added

Joaquin Flores – RUSSIA’S COUNTER-BLOW: Info War victory and the destroyed Aid Convoy

As a matter of record, it was the planned US and ISIS joint attack on the Syrian Arab Army forces at Deir ez-Zor on September 17th, 2016, that led to the Syrian government unilaterally calling off the ceasefire hours before the attack on the Red Crescent convoy. The diplomatic crisis was compounded by the ‘heavy handed’ and ‘unprofessional’ ( in the words of Russia’s UN rep, Churkin,) approach of the US’s UN representative Samantha Power at an emergency session of the UN Security Council.
Therefore, the western media focus on the aid caravan attack seems to aimed at deflecting blame on the collapsed ceasefire away from the US, and diverting public attention onto a more recent news story – this is in line with the use of the ‘recency effect’ in psychology. Human memories are not recording devices, and the public is prone to remember things based cues and references independent of reality.

fort-russ.com – RUSSIA CONFIRMS: UN convoy explosion was a US diversion

Below is the official statement of Russian Defense Ministry official spokesperson Igor Konashenkov in response to allegations spread by US presidential advisor on national security, Ben Rhodes, that Russia launched an airstrike on the humanitarian convoy in Aleppo on September 19th..

However, on the same evening of September 19th, in this area, in the air at an altitude of 3600 meters and moving at a speed of 200 kilometers per hour was a strike drone of the international coalition that had taken off from the Turkish Incirlik airbase.
According to effective reflective surfacing, the aircraft was identified by our air control systems as an unmanned aerial vehicle of the Predator type. This aircraft flew into the residential area of Urum al-Kubra where the automobile convoy was several minutes before its explosion. The drone then left after around 30 minutes.
I want to emphasize that, as in the case of the tragedy at Deir ez-Zor on September 17th, when more than 200 people were killed and wounded as a result of a coalition airstrike, we did not draw any unsubstantiated conclusions.
For what purpose this drone was at this point at this time and what tasks it carried out are known by its commanders.
We will explain this especially for Mr. Ben Rhodes: this type of drone can not only monitor a situation, but can also launch direct ground attacks as well as launch high-precision strikes on land targets.

It’s difficult to overstate what Lavrov’s statements will mean going forward: In the most diplomatic way possible, Lavrov just accused the United States of military coordination with ISIS and Al-Nusra. Or, at the very least, he is suggesting that the U.S. acted with full knowledge that these terrorists groups would immediately benefit.

Marine General Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the US military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, told Congress on Thursday that the Pentagon had no intention of forging an intelligence sharing arrangement with Russia.

Dunford said any such coordination between the US and Russia against Daesh would be extremely limited.
