En intervju från Press TV där Paul Sheldon Foote, professor på California State University, Irvine, säger några väl valda ord angående Syrien, den är så bra så jag lägger in hela här.

Press TV: Professor, how would you explain Russia’s stance and position towards Syria?
Foote: I think it’s time that someone started telling the truth about it. It’s very obvious that America, Israel and some Arab countries are behind this terrorism in Syria.
A big lie for a long time, that America’s been at war with terrorism while they continually support terrorism in the region. It’s outrageous what they’re doing.
Not only that, they’ve used that as an excuse in America for taking away our freedoms. It’s time for the people in the West to wake up to what’s really happening. It affects not only Syria but it affects all of us in the West too.
Press TV: Nearly a year into the crisis in Syria, many people around the world are asking this question, that what is the end game in Syria? What will happen after this 90-day period after Kofi Annan’s peace plan?
Foote: I think that those in the West who have started this don’t have any plans to stop in the near future. They would even be happy to see a civil war in the country totally torn into pieces.
Unfortunately, the only way it’s going to end is if there’s any decent people left in Syria who won’t take money or weapons from the Israelis, Americans or Arabs, and realize that what they’re doing is very treasonous.
Press TV: Why is it that the Syrian government is accused and not the opposition?
Foote: It’s the controlled media of the West. It’s like George Orwell: ‘black is white and white is black’. The Western media has great success in twisting every truth into a lie, and a lie into a truth.
Unfortunately, millions of people in America continue to listen only to the “lame-stream” media, as we call it here – the critics of the lies are the mainstream media.

Uttalande av Rysslands utrikesminister Lavrov – Russia Calls on Syria to Firmly Confront the Terrorists

The Russian Foreign Ministry stressed the necessity of firmly confronting the terrorists operating in Syria, calling on all internal and external sides to stop providing any kind of support to the terrorists as provided by the Security Council’s anti-terrorism resolutions.
”Moscow firmly condemns these brutal acts that have claimed many victims as a result of the bombings which took place in Damascus, Aleppo, Lattakia, Banias and Jableh and in three neighborhoods in Hama,” said the statement.

Russia and Iran today renewed rejection of any foreign intervention in Syria’s domestic affairs, stressing the need for settling the crisis in Syria through a comprehensive national dialogue.

Från den regimtrogna nyhetskanalen Sveriges Radio EkotVapen till syrisk opposition beslagtogs i Libanon – för ovanlighets skull inget större fel på det här inlägget, men kallar man den statliga syriska nyhetskanalen Sana för ”regimvänlig”, så ska man kallas det själva.

Militärer har beslagtagit tre containrar med vapen i en hamn i norra Libanon. Vapnen uppges ha varit på väg till oppositionsstyrkorna i Syrien.
Containrarna innehöll bland annat tunga kulsprutor, granater, raketvapen och sprängämnen, uppger libanesiska säkerhetsmyndigheter.


How the information warlords define the concept of terrorism in the case of Syria

This despite the fact that almost all definitions of terrorism share one common denominator— irrespective of their other differences— which is the deliberate use of force, or the threat of force, against civilian targets for political purposes. Mainstream news agencies have not hesitated in the past to refer to such attacks on western soil as “terrorism”, but the failure to do so in the case of Syria reflects their not-so-hidden political agendas and the degree of their embeddedness in Empire’s foreign policy objectives.

Terrordåd i Damaskus, 11 dödade, Press TV – Eleven killed, many injured in Damascus explosionvideo

According to Syria’s official news agency, the blast occurred in the central neighborhood of al-Midan, near a mosque and school, on Friday after a terrorist detonated explosives he was carrying.
The victims are reported to be civilians and members of law enforcement.

The blast came hours after another explosion hit an industrial zone in Damascus. Activists say the blast rocked a state-owned transport company and caused a number of casualties.

Webster Tarpley på Press TV – Will NATO Try a Wag-the-Dog Provocation Against Syria to Keep Sarkozy in Power After May 6?

It was found that wherever Negroponte showed up in Central America, in Salvador that death squads would appear and begin essentially targeting population groups that the US wanted to attack or wipe out.
And sure enough that is what happened in Iraq around 2007. Negroponte arrived, death squads appeared. Now the death squads in this case were Sunni, extremist fanatics drawn from many, many areas, drawn from Saudi Arabia, from far away points in the world.
They began killing Shiites in particular in Iraq and that is what led to the civil war in Iraq in those years 2007, 2008. That is what allowed the United States to maintain their presence in Iraq.
Now at the time Negroponte did this, he was working with a man named Robert Ford it was his right hand man and sure enough Robert Ford then showed up in Damascus as the United States Ambassador.
I would add that in 2007, 2008 the original death squad plan known as the Salvadoran option included Syria. Syria was regarded as a unit with Iraq and so what they were doing was setting the basis at that time they merely needed to develop it further.
So I think you’ve got death squads in the center of it and then of course they’re joined by indigenous fanatics, indigenous criminal elements and then there is a thin veneer of civilians who are interested in political reform. The thing is they get lost in the shuffle. My own visit to Homs and Banias last year, this was never a peaceful rebellion, it was always armed; it was always based on killing.

Tony Cartalucci – Syria, Waco, Occupy, and Los Angeles, Correlations They Hope You Never Make

While the West demands Syria pull its security forces from cities where roving bands of terrorists are on record committing widespread atrocities including the kidnapping, torture, and murder of civilians, as documented by the West’s own Human Rights Watch report, ”Syria: Armed Opposition Groups Committing Abuses,” it has denied its own citizens the right to even peacefully assemble at ”Occupy” protests to address their grievances back home. Syria’s government has been threatened continuously by the West to begin a process of political ”transition,” or more accurately, to submit to Western-backed regime change, in the face of armed militants, while the West itself maintains a strict policy of non-negotiation with terrorist demands.

The depths of depravity, the hypocrisy, the illegitimacy flaunted by the United Nations and the Western interests pulling its string, demanding Syrian troops to withdraw from cities plagued by terrorists, but making no mention of the terrorists themselves or their own serial violations of the ”peace plan,” even as they drive tanks around on camera in front of the world, forever renders moot this latest attempt to assert the ”primacy of international law” over that of the nation-state.
What Wall Street and London do through their ”international institutions” from this point forward, is done as poorly disguised imperialism with their ”humanitarian concerns” nothing more than the weakest sort of rhetoric in the long history of weak rhetoric used to propel the interests of empire.

Christoph Hörstel har uppgifter om att amerikanska privat-arméföretag hjälper till med att hålla våldet vid liv i Syrien! War Under Table: Ex-Blackwater mercs in Syria ‘backed by US’

Vittnesmål från Damaskus

– Alla syrier jag möter vill att Kofi Annans fredsplan ska lyckas. Men de väpnade grupperna fortsätter sin terror. Det säger May Almoudalal på telefon från Damaskus.

May Almoudalal berättar om en bekant som under påsken återvände till familjens hus i Homs. Delar av staden var totalförstörd efter striderna. I en byggnad nära hennes hem hade en krypskytt gömt sig i källaren. Genom ett litet fönster sköt han mot alla förbipasserande. Ända tills att armén grep honom.
– De flesta syrier menar att de väpnade grupperna är kriminella som får pengar och vapen utifrån. Vi vet att det bland dem finns folk från andra länder, som Libyen, Afghanistan, Irak och Saudiarabien.
I svenska medier påstås att det i huvudsak är den syriska regimen som är skyldig till våldet?
– Det är inte sant. Från början av konflikten agerade regeringen väldigt försiktigt i bemötande av de väpnade gängen. Men folket tröttnade på dessa gruppers dödande och kidnappningar. Kravet på att armén skulle ingripa kom underifrån.

Ronda Hauben – SYRIA: ”Media Warfare” undermines UN Peace Mission

Reports from on the ground are that there are eleven UN observers already in Syria, and that by the end of April the thirty observers for the initial contingent should be deployed. Despite such small numbers of observers, the early phase this represents in the mission, and the positive nature of Annan’s briefing to the Security Council, there are media reports quoting various sources that proclaim that the mission has failed. (3)
Such misleading media reports are to be expected as there is a media war against the sovereignty of Syria and in support of the armed insurgency.
One mechanism of this media warfare is constant reference to unverified reports from the opposition from such questionable sources as the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights which is in the UK. Several exposures of this organization have been written showing that not only do two rival groups claim they are the legitimate representatives of this entity, but neither of the groups has a basis to verify the reports that are issued in its name.
Yet many media organizations around the world, especially in the West, continually refer to claims by this London based organization as the basis for the casualty figures they blame on the Syrian government. Similarly, more reliable information including names of victims among both government or civilian sectors caused by the armed insurgency are not reported in these mainstream media sources. Recently, a number of journalists have resigned from Aljazeera claiming that the political thrust of the news organization would not allow these journalists to report on the evidence of violence by the armed insurgents.
In every war, media is a major weapon. Annan’s six point plan is part of a peace mission. How the UN Observer Mission will respond to the media warfare against the Annan plan is a critical question that will determine how effectively UNSMIS can perform as a force in Syria.

Webster Tarpley på Press TV – ‘US sent death squads into Syria’

Tony Cartalucci – Neo-Imperialists Grind Away at Syrian Sovereignty

The oligarchs of Wall Street and London will continue directing their vast propaganda networks to portray the violence they themselves are fueling as a one-sided atrocity carried out solely by the long-targeted Syrian government. They will continue to use the UN as a willing tool to develop their casus belli for military intervention on behalf of known terrorists. We will also see the West attempt various ploys to prod members of the Syrian government and military into defecting as Syria is slowly destroyed just as in Libya. – Terrorist Group Infiltration Attempt from Turkey Foiled

Ekots inslag om Syrien idag är inte värt att uppmärksamma annat än som motbjudande exempel på de kontrollerade mediernas ensidiga propaganda, något för mediaforskare och liknande att lägga i arkiven.
