Geneva talks a good chance of progress on Syria: Lavrov

Intervju med Michel Chossudovsky på Press TV – ‘Covert war waged against Syria’

Turkey has been supplying weapons to an entity involved in crimes against humanity and the killing of civilians, which is casually blamed on the government.
This has been documented in numerous reports that the killing of civilians is the work of the US/NATO sponsored death squads, which are set loose inside Syria.

Matt Carr – US and its allies are more interested in stoking the violence in Syria than preventing it, Western governments are continuing to pour petrol onto the Syrian conflict while talking the language of peace and democracy and their desire to ‘stop the bloodshed’.

Tony Cartalucci – Propagandists Sell ”Vigilante” Solution for Syria

Ned Dobos of Australia’s University of New South Wales, Canberra has given a presentation, served up in the form of an op-ed in the Sydney Morning Herald titled, ”Syria needs a vigilante to save its people,” that can only be described as a new benchmark in Western duplicity. Cued up by the forces of Western imperialism, Dobos plugs in every keyword and talking point flowing through the halls of the very corporate-funded think tanks that have engineered the blood-soaked destabilization in Syria in the first place.

Christof Lehmann – Kurdish Fractions fight NATO-led Free Syrian Army

Leaders of the PKK affiliated Syrian Democratic Union Party, which has a strong political influence in predominantly ethnically Kurdish regions of Syria are determined to stop the bloodshed and massacres of the Free Syrian Army from spreading to ethnically Kurdish areas where the party yields a sufficiently strong influence to resist the FSA. In case of a widening of the conflict, the Democratic Union Party will stand side by side with the Syrian government and the Syrian Military.
Syrian Kurds have good reason to oppose the attempted subversion and stand in solidarity against the foreign backed insurgents which brand themselves Free Syrian Army. What is euphemistically called Free Syrian Army, is in fact a construct with a core consisting of US, NATO, GCC, and Turkish backed Al Qaeda brigades, armed brigades of the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as NATO, GCC, and Turkish Special Forces. The people as well as the political and military fractions of Kurdistan and Syria are aware of, that there is nothing good to be expected from the Free Syrian Army, and in particular, that there is nothing positive to be expected from Turkey, which contrary to Syria maintains a policy of rigorous oppression of Kurdish ethnicity, identity, culture and political influence.

Lavrov to Clinton: We will not support any imposition of recipes

Annan’s plan pushes for the creation of a transitional government that would exclude figures that jeopardize stability.
However, Russia categorically opposes the idea that other countries should dictate the future of Syria, believing that the decision is up to Syrians themselves.
”We will not support and cannot support any meddling from outside or any imposition of recipes. This also concerns the fate of Syria,” Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on the eve of the meeting.

Al-Jaafari.. Syria calls for Adopting Necessary Procedures to Prevent, Stop the Financing of Terrorist Acts in video med Al-Jafaaris tal

Syria’s permanent Envoy to the United Nations Bashar al-Jaafari said that the terrorist acts in Syria wouldn’t be perpetrated without the support, whether in money, weapon, persons or through providing the political and media backing to the terrorist groups who carry out such acts.
“Syria urges all countries to cooperate in order to implement the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, and calls for taking the necessary measures to prevent and stop the financing of any terror acts against Syria launched from lands of neighboring countries and not to provide a safe haven to those who plot for the terrorist acts,” al-Jaafari added in a statement at a the UN General Assembly session held to discuss the UN Global Strategy for Combating Terrorism.

Nu när Nato genom Turkiet ökat spänningen mot Syrien genom provokationen med flygplanet som sköts ner, vad händer nu? En ny incident som tänder gnistan på allvar? Problemet för Nato, som Lehmann säger, är att försöka att få det att inte se alltför uppenbart ut att det är en upptrappning man söker för att kunna nå det mål man haft hela tiden, att förstöra Syrien som självständigt och oberoende land.
Christof Lehmann – Terror Storm on Syria up to Geneva Meeting

With a terrorstom unleashed in Syria, NATO attempts to create a pretext for a war on Syria under Article Five of the Washington Treaty, with the threat of the breakout of a regional war with global consequences, the meeting in Geneva in three days seem like one of the last possible chances to prevent disaster.

Om inte Iran ska få vara med vid samtalen om Syrien i Geneve på lördag, därför att man ger de styrande i Syrien sitt stöd, så borde inte USA heller få vara med då man så ensidigt kräver presidentens avgång.

Bill Van Auken – US-BACKED GUNMEN BEHIND IKHBARIYA TV MASSACRE

Gunmen stormed a pro-government television station in Syria Wednesday, slaughtering seven employees, wounding others and taking several people hostage. The attack came a day after President Bashar al-Assad declared Syria to be in “a real state of war.”
Killed in the early morning attack on Ikhbariya TV, located in a southern suburb of Damascus, were three journalists and four security guards. The attackers fired automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades at the security guards before ransacking the satellite station’s offices and studios and then setting powerful explosive devices that reduced the buildings to broken and burning rubble.
An outside wall of one of the buildings was splattered with blood, where the station’s employees had been bound, forced to their knees and then executed in cold blood.
The assault on Ikhbariya TV came just one day after the European Union issued new sanctions on sections of Syria’s state-run media, and followed the move earlier this month by the Arab League to force two Pan-Arab satellite companies to black out Syrian channels.

Ryskt uttalande (från Aukens artikel) om en FN-rapport som säger att man inte kommit fram till vilka som låg bakom massakern i Houla i slutet av maj:

The report “does not reflect the scope of violence committed by militants,” said Vassily Nebenzya, the director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s department for humanitarian cooperation and human rights. These forces, he said, “kill or take hostage civilians, renowned Syrian political, state, municipal, public and religious activists, pilgrims”.
He added: “State institutions and infrastructure facilities are attacked practically on a daily basis. A mine war is in full swing. Militants commit bloody terrorist acts in Syrian cities.” This violence, Nebenzya said, “is fed with money and weapons from abroad.”

Finian Cunningham – SYRIA A VICTIM OF NATO AGGRESSION

What NATO wants is an “act of war” that it can pin on Syria, thus giving the NATO war machine the pseudo legal right to launch an overt military campaign on that country – as opposed to the 15-month covert campaign of aggression that has so far proved ineffective in dislodging the popularly supported Assad government.
The hypocritical, histrionic reaction of Turkey and its NATO allies over the latest downing of a Turkish warplane off the Syrian coast is more reflective of their criminal war agenda across the Middle East than the actual circumstances of the incident.

Leif Karbelius – Massakern i Houla – ett journalistiskt haveri?

De vidriga morden i syriska Houla resulterade i 108 döda, bland annat 49 barn och 34 kvinnor. Regimen beskylldes för dådet men färska rapporter antyder en ”false flag”-operation av sunnitiska rebeller.

En attack mot en syrisk TV-station, 7 dödade säger man nu! sana.sy – An Armed Terrorist Group Attacks Syrian TV al-Ikhbaryia Satellite Channel, Three Staff Martyred

Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi on Wednesday said the armed terrorist groups perpetrated the worst massacre against journalism and the freedom of media when they executed the Syria media figures in cold blood.
The Minister held those who instigate against Syria and escalate terrorism against its people fully responsible for this massacre.
Minister al-Zoubi said ”This massacre won’t go unpunished and the broadcast of the Syrian al-Ikhbaryia Satellite will not stop and we hold the EU and Arab and International organizations responsible for this massacre.”

Turkey vows retaliation, Russia calls for restraint -News Analysis-06-26-2012

Dan Glazebrook – PEACEFUL AND INDEPENDENT SYRIA: US-NATO and WEST’S GREATEST FEAR

This prospect — of an end to the civil war and a negotiated peace that brings about a reform process without destabilising the country — has led to desperation amongst the imperialist powers. Despite their claims to the contrary, a stable Syrian-led process is the last thing they want, as it leaves open the possibility of Syria remaining a strong, independent, anti-imperialist state — exactly the possibility they had sought to eliminate.
Hence, within days of Kofi Anan’s peace plan gaining a positive response from both sides in late March, the imperialist powers openly pledged, for the first time, millions of dollars for the Free Syrian Army: for military equipment, to provide salaries to its soldiers, and to bribe government forces to defect. In other words, terrified that the civil war in Syria is starting to die down, they are setting about institutionalising it. If violent regime change is starting to look unlikely, the hope instead is to keep the country weak and on its knees by sucking its energy into an ongoing civil war.

Nevertheless, the destabilisation agenda is not going according to plan. The internal opposition in Syria is becoming increasingly frustrated with the way things are progressing, and a clear split is emerging between those based outside the country, happy to see Syria consigned to oblivion in order to please their paymasters and further their careers, and those who actually have to live with the consequences.
The reckless attacks carried out by the armed militias are increasingly alienating even those who once had some sympathy for them, especially as their foreign membership and direction is being exposed ever more clearly. Having been proven unable to win and hold territory, these militias are turning to hit- and-run guerrilla tactics. But the guerrilla, as Mao put it, is like a fish that can only survive in a sea of popular support. And that sea is rapidly drying up.

Jorge Capelan and Toni Solo – From Nicaragua to Syria – Journalism is dead, long live psy-warfare …

Journalism has been rendered obsolete by the reporting practice of media in NATO countries and their allies. Recent wars from the Ivory Coast to Libya and now Syria only confirm what was already clear after the chain of wars in the 1990s, in former Yugoslavia, Iraq, Somalia, Rwanda, the Congo and many other places. NATO country information media across the political spectrum are, one way or another, a vital component of NATO war planning and practice in terms of psy-warfare. The same is also true of the aid, development and human rights non-governmental sector of those NATO countries.
The conflicts in Libya and Syria demonstrated that most progressive and radical currents of political opinion will readily collaborate with NATO psy-warfare campaigns against target countries. In general almost all progressive opinion is intimidated by the completely bogus rhetoric of human rights and democracy deployed by the NATO country psy-warfare machinery. The most common expression of this is for the representatives of progressive opinion to try and seek a neutral position that in practice facilitates NATO aggression against its target countries.

VIKTIG OCH VÄRDEFULL ARTIKEL, Joyce Chediac – The U.S. and Syria: Facts you should know

The following timeline reviews the progression of U.S.-NATO intervention in Syria and counteracts the Big Lie in the corporate media aimed at preparing open imperialist military aggression against the Syrian people.
Washington has funneled money to a right-wing Syrian opposition group since at least 2005. (Washington Post, April 16, 2011)
The U.S. reopened its embassy in Damascus in January 2011 after six years. This was no thaw in relations. The new ambassador, Robert S. Ford, who served until October 2011, is a protégé of John Negroponte, who organized death squads in El Salvador in the 1970s and in Iraq while ambassador there in 2004-05. There terror squads killed tens of thousands. Ford served directly under Negroponte at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.
Ford “played a central role in laying the groundwork within Syria as well as establishing contacts with opposition groups.” Two months after he arrived in Damascus, the armed insurgency began. (Global Research, May 28)
Armed opposition to Bashar al-Assad began in March 2011 in Daraa, a small town on the Jordanian border. Mass protest movements usually start in large population centers. Later, Saudi Arabia admitted sending weapons to the opposition via Jordan. (RT, March 13) …..

Frågan är hur mycket sanning som ligger i Nato-mediernas påståenden om att ”rebellerna” kontrollerar stora delar av landsbygden i Syrien. Enligt Christof Lehmann är ett problem för syriska militären att de väpnade grupperna genomför sina attacker från områden där civila bor, vilket gör det svårt att komma åt dom.

Christof Lehmann – NATO Secretary General Carefully Chosen Words of Disinformation as War Intensifies

it is important to reiterate some facts which, so to speak, shoot down NATO´s disinformation. Hopefully this will be as effective as the Syrian Air Defenses.
It has been well established since latest August 2011 that NATO had Special Forces on the ground in Syria, waging a covert, undeclared and illegal war on Syria. (1)
The War on Syria is waged by a coalition of NATO, Israel, GCC member states, the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, and indirectly Hamas. It has been actively prepared and implemented since at least 2010. (2) (3)
On Friday the NATO member Turkey committed a an additional blatant violation of international law when it violated Syrian Airspace and Syrian Territorial Waters.
The Turkish Phantom F4 was not shot down by a missile, but by a ground-based anti-aircraft machine gun with a maximum range of 2.5 kilometers.
Syrian authorities have delivered the wreckage to Turkish Authorities together with a report.
Bullet holes at the tail end of the airplanes show that the F4 was hit at the tail end and subsequently lost it´s ability to remain airborne. It also shows that Syria did not use a missile but ground based anti aircraft machine gun fire, after visual contact was established.
When fire was opened on the F4 it flew at an altitude of 100 meters and with a speed of 800km/h.
Syria has offered Turkey to form a joint military technical committee and visit the site of the event to help clarify eventual Turkish doubts. (4)
While the world media focus on the riveting question if NATO will invoke Article Five against Syria, a coordinated assault on key government buildings in Damascus was initiated by NATO led insurgents. (5)

Rick Rozoff – NATO War Council To Target Syria

The U.S. and NATO have been itching for a pretext to attack Syria, and Turkey, the only NATO member to border the country, has always been the pretext which would be employed to justify military action against the Arab nation.
Last Friday’s incident and the NATO meeting following it signal the fourth act in a tragedy that the world community has precious little time to stop.

Eventually I don’t expect that Turkey would make more escalations against Syria. It is enough that Turkey has given refuge for those military groups on its territory against Syria and other refugees in order to invest them against the Syrian people and the Syrian leadership.

The New York Times report noted that CIA officers are helping to decide which gangs inside the Arab coiuntry will ”receive arms to fight the Syrian government.”
The report added that Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar have paid for the transport of weaponry into Syria.
Syria has recently said in a statement, ”The US administration is pushing forth with its flagrant interference in Syria’s internal affairs and its backing of armed terrorist groups.”
The statement also condemned Washington for ”distorting the truth and what is happening on the ground while encouraging armed terrorist groups to carry out more massacres… throughout the country.”

Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey – Turkish Fighter Aircraft: Making some sense

Predictably, Turkey has reacted to the destruction of one of its aircraft with stupidity and cowardice and predictably, the western leaders have jumped at the chance to up the stakes in an internal conflict in Syria which they are aiding and abetting by providing terrorists with weaponry. Through Turkey.

Are the Turkish President and Foreign Minister stupid, or what? What do they expect? You allow your territory to be used to arm terrorists to destabilise a sovereign nation, send a Phantom F-4 military assault aircraft flying fast and low into that country’s territorial waters (not to test Turkish radar but yes, to test the Syrian anti-aircraft system) and then when it is shot down, run crying to NATO because you got your nose smacked in?

Scott Creighton – Israel, NATO’s Little Helper: The Overlooked Player in the Syrian Destabilization Campaign

All too often we find ourselves talking about the United States and Britain’s destabilization campaign in Syria and we forget to mention the other partner in crime working to break the country up into little pieces: NATO’s Little Helper, Israel.
Israel’s involvement in the terrorist centered destabilization campaign is extensive to say the least and their motives to assist in the NATO efforts are just as obvious.
Israel has more than a few prime motivations to see that the current regime in Syria is overthrown and replaced by a puppet regime friendly to the west and Israel in particular. The first and foremost, is the survival of Israel itself and this has nothing to do with some existential threat posed by Syria.

Christof Lehmann – Turkey’s Provocations bring Middle East to Brink of long planned, long expected Open War

Yesterday Breaking News hit the Headlines of Media World Wide. On Friday Syrian Air Defense Forces had shot down one of two Turkish F4 military planes – that had violated Syrian airspace. The response from Turkey was as expected. A threatening posture by promising “decisive action”. What Western Main Stream Media fail to report is that Turkey has backed an illegal war on Syria since 2010, implemented military operations against Syria since 2011, and that the two Turkish F4 jets flew at high speed, low altitude, and violating Syrian Air Space and International Law. Rather than that, Western Media continue constructing narratives that are meant to justify a long-planned, ruthlessly implemented war on Syria, Lebanon and Turkey.(1) The Turkish provocation of a legitimate Syrian response may be part of a plan to justify the invocation of NATO´s Article Five and all-out war.

Jet Escalation: ‘Turkey probing Syrian anti-air defense’

Syria Scenario-News Analysis-06-21-2012

A recent report from the mainstream daily newspaper New York Times has gone into detail as to how the CIA is facilitating arms and other assistance to armed groups in Syria, and it’s doing it on Turkish soil, near the borders with Syria. Damascus has always been very vocal that Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia were assisting, funding and arming armed groups operating on the Syrian soil.

Webster Tarpley på Press TV – NATO arming, financing al-Qaeda death squads in Syria: Author

Tarpley: The group that we’re given to understand in this Associated Press report is about 1000 fighters. Now, 1000 fighters is about the number of killers that went into Houla and carried out the Houla massacre, burning out the hospital and massacring everybody as they came out of the hospital.
That was a false-flag event. That was a massacre that was portrayed by the corrupt media as being a war crime of the Assad regime. In fact it was not. It was primarily, 90 percent of it, the activity of these death squads. They tried to false-flag and they couldn’t get anything out of that.
What they added today was the attempt at a Gulf of Tonkin incident, that is to say the story of the Turkish-NATO fighter jet supposedly shot down, brought down or coming down either in the Mediterranean or on Syrian territory, two people on board, their status uncertain; Erdogan of Turkey saying he’s looking into it.
That could easily flip into an incident like the famous, fake, Gulf of Tonkin incident of 1964 that started the Vietnam War. The US government will tell you now in retrospect that the Gulf of Tonkin incident never occurred — too bad if you died in Vietnam.
This time, though, it would be Turkey turning to NATO and saying ‘invoke Article 5, help us, we’re under attack by Syria.’ It’s absurd. It looks like, if anything, the Turkish plane is violating Syrian airspace; but that is obviously the great danger of escalation.
At that point, the ball would go back in the Russian court. What are you going to do about it? Are you going to let your only ally in the area be the target of NATO aggression of will you retaliate in some way? This remains to be seen.

In fact, Ankara acted provocatively. Perhaps it was at the behest of Washington. Turkey is a NATO member. A previous article explained it can invoke NATO Charter Articles 4 or 5.

A virtual state of war exists in Syria short of officially declaring it. These type incidents can easily be used as pretexts for full-blown conflict. It remains to be seen if Washington has that in mind.

Did the Syrian pilot willingly defect or did he have ”incentive” to do so?

As the Toronto Star let’s us know.. ”his family is under rebel protection”
Is his family under rebel protection. Or has his family been kidnapped? Being spun as ”protection” Is his family being held hostage by the NATO backed rebels??
The rebels are vicious, without a doubt. Therefore, it is not a stretch to believe the pilot undertook the ”defection” to save his family.

Nu är det svårt att förneka utländsk inblandning i våldet i Syrien!
nytimes.com – C.I.A. Said to Aid in Steering Arms to Syrian Opposition

A small number of C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey, helping allies decide which Syrian opposition fighters across the border will receive arms to fight the Syrian government, according to American officials and Arab intelligence officers.
The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the officials said.

Russia Today – Revealed: CIA secretly operates on Syrian border, supplies arms to rebels

Press TV – Satanic alliance forms against Syria: Analyst

According to a New York Times report published on Thursday, some US and Arab intelligence officials say a group of “CIA officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey” and that the agents are helping the anti-Syria governments decide which gangs inside the Arab country will “receive arms to fight the Syrian government.”
Press TV has conducted an interview with Mohsen Saleh, a professor at the Lebanese University in Beirut, to further shed light on the issue.

Syria: The Assassination Campaign And Its Historic Example

The foreign supported rebels in Syria, armed by the CIA in consultation with the Muslim Brotherhood, do not only wage a war against the Syrian army and government.
They also wage a silent assassination campaign by death squadrons who, day by day, kill more or less prominent Syrian intellectuals and functionaries who support the Syrian government. That campaign has been going on for many months now without any western media reporting on it. A typical recent incident:
Brigadier Ghassan Abu al-Dahab, a doctor and the head of the Harasta clinic, was assassinated in front of his house in Damascus by the blast of an explosion device that was planted under his car, Syria’s Arab News Agency SANA said.
The assassination came as part of a series of attempts made recently against senior army officers.
Another Syrian, Abdul-Qoudous Jbarah, was killed in his house in the Damascus suburb of Sayeda Zainab, said SANA, adding that terrorists broke into his house Wednesday and shot him and wounded his brother.
The Syrian news agency SANA calls this a campaign against ”national and scientific expertise and intellectuals”:
In the framework of targeting the national and scientific expertise and intellectuals, an armed terrorist group on Monday assassinated Doctor Adnan Tawfik al-Samitt in Daraa.
SANA reporter quoted a source at Daraa Province as saying that the armed terrorist group shoot dead Dr. al-Samitt with their machineguns near his house at al-Qusour Neighborhood in Daraa city.

Sergey Lavrov: It was part of a campaign and not a very decent campaign, I would say.
We are sending no battleships to Syria. We have been saying publicly that we have been implementing contracts under which we have to supply arms to Syria. Those armaments are entirely defensive and they mostly consist of air defense systems, which cannot be used against the population and can only be used to respond to outside aggression.

Russia is planning the evacuation of Russians who are living in Syria. While the Western powers have prevented the confectionary redelivery of three (repaired) old Soviet helicopters to Syria, the country is now filled with modern NATO weapons.
After the grouchy joint press conference by Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama is the first serious information about the situation in Syria a message on vedomosti.ru.
This messages states that several Russian ministries – the Department of Defense, the Ministry of Disaster Management, as well as the Russian fleet – have confirmed to the newspaper now that there are actual commands available about the preparation of plans for an evacuation of Russian citizens from Syria.

Vad betyder egentligen ”Assad måste gå”?
Grundat på erfarenheterna från Libyen, där ett Nato-lett krig utspelades under den snarlika parollen ”Gaddafi måste gå”, kan man dra följande slutsatser:
– Vem som ska styra Syrien från presidentposten i framtiden är inte uteslutande en fråga för Syriens folk. Territorialrätten upphävs därmed liksom FN-stadgan och det mesta av folkrätten tillbaka till westfaliska freden och längre.
– Bashar Assad ska inte ställas inför rätta, utan mördas i en kloak i Damskus utlkanter av Nato:s kommandosoldater.
– Landets riksbank ska utbjudas till högstbjudande.
– Landets energiresurser måste privatiseras och utbjudas till angloamerikanska jättar.
– Landets regering ska bildas av en hoprafsad samling ”muslimska” terrorister (i Libyen al Qaida bl.a, i Syrien salafiter/wahabbiter).
– Tusentals regeringstjänstemän ska torteras, lemlästas och arkebuseras godtyckligt. Det MI6-styrda Amnesty lovar att tiga.
Vi – arma mediakonsumenter – måste lära oss att dechiffrera språket.
När BBC i sin lunchsändning sa att FN:s observatörer ”had been stopped by Syrian government forces and shot at”, måste man kunna genomskåda den skickliga meningsbyggnaden.
Alltså, det var inte syriska regeringstrupper som besköt FN, utan icke-identifierade kombattanter.

US and France responsible for terrorism in Syria

”The U.S. and France, mainly responsible for the shedding of innocent blood in Syria”
Syrian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Faisal al-Meqdad, said Tuesday that the U.S. and French governments are responsible for the bloodshed of innocent people of Syria.
Al-Meqdad made these remarks in an interview Tuesday on ”Russia Today” television, referring to the support of these countries for armed terrorist groups.

Wassim Raad – The lies of those unable to destroy the Syrian strength

Syria was never the center of the universe as much as it is today. All around the world, hundreds of pieces of information and thousands of reports, rumors, fabricated pictures and made up news are emerging via media networks that are shedding light on contradictory positions and statements of senior Western officials. At this level, the Russian government is finding itself forced to issue quasi daily statements to deny many rumors and clarify the falsification affecting the positions of its officials.

Väpnade gäng har ett stort antal civila som gisslan i Homs. Christoph Hörstel – Homs rebels: Army must leave, or we’ll start killing civilians

Almost all towns are under the government control except for Homs, where rebels and ‘terrorists’ have asked the army to leave – otherwise they have threatened to kill the civilians.
Syrian officials say up to 5000 civilians have been ‘taken hostage’ in Homs, the cradle of the Syrian uprising. The Syrian army refuses to bargain with the insurgents mingled with ‘terrorists’ in the city in Syria’s west, and has not started an assault. The army has halted operations, in order not to cause loss of life among the ‘hostages’.
However, Homs’s area is completely surrounded and is being monitored by the army. The same Syrian officials state that what appears on international media as Homs demonstrators are in fact these ‘hostages’.
For the last three days ‘terrorists’ have been trying to infiltrate across the Lebanese border, but face gunfights with the regular army supported by Iranian commandos. Infiltrating mercenaries try to move directly to Damascus, but suffer heavy losses already at the borders, say Syrian officials.
As more details arrive from Syria about foreign involvement, the NGO “Medecins Sans Frontieres”(MSF) is being accused its personnel have a ”dual use” in the battles. At times, regime’s forces are unable to discern between fighters and paramedics, which has lead to MSF staff being killed or seized in government’s security operations across the Arab country.

En intervju med Buthaina Shaaban, rådgivare till Syriens president. Från Russia Today – ‘Tell Brits to remove Cameron and see what happens’ – Assad’s adviser

RT: Peacekeeping forces have confirmed that Syria is in a state of civil war, what would you say to that statement?
Bouthaina Shaaban: It is irresponsible to say that Syria is in a state of civil war, especially as we’re fighting terrorism. I think some media have a war on Syria.
RT: Do you think there can be trust restored between the western media and the Syrian government or will this media war only escalate?
BS: There are hundreds of journalists who came to Syria during the crisis. It is not true that we don’t give access to foreign journalists. Foreign journalists from all over the world came to Syria. But also there are satellite channels that made themselves part of the war on Syria, inciting sectarian violence, fabricating facts about what is happening in our country.
RT: But the media war itself – can it do any damage?
BS: The media war can do a lot of damage. Because when you have some religious man inciting sectarian hatred among the Syrian people – there are many people who fall victim to this incitement. Unfortunately, media wars have proved to be very effective throughout history.
RT: Do you feel like the Syrian government could lose in this conflict because of the media war?
BS: I don’t think so. Not to this extent but definitely it is costing lives of our people.
RT: We often see, especially lately, the Syrian government pointing the finger at others for supplying guns to terrorists. Who are these “others”, could you name the countries?
BS: I don’t know but I would like to say that the Syrian government is not the issue. The issue is Syria, the unity, the safety, the sovereignty and prosperity of Syria.
RT: Your surely have your own, not official, vision of those who are helping those terrorists to kill peaceful people?
BS: Even the UN observers say there are groups in every area (of Syria), and nobody knows who these people are. We don’t know to whom they belong, and who are their leaders. This is the most important problem in Syria: you don’t know who your adversary is.
RT: The UN is critical to safeguard Syria against a military invasion. How big is the threat of foreign intervention in Syria?
BS: The UN observers have made many statements that the Syrian government cooperated very well. They did not stop, they suspended their mission. We also fear for their safety, because as the Syrian people are targeted, we’re also afraid that some observers could be targeted by armed groups and we would hate that to happen.
RT: How do you assess the chance of a foreign invasion?
BS: I don’t think that is possible, in a sense. Russia and China double-vetoed (UN resolutions on Syria) twice. Russia has a stand that it is the Syrian people that should decide the future of Syria. I don’t think a military strike (against Syria) is possible. If you look at what happened in Libya or Yemen – you can see the consequences. I think the west is quite aware of what things are in the Middle East. I hope they are people reasonable enough to act very carefully. I think there is no consideration for such a thing.
RT: You do have Russian and Chinese support in the UN Security Council, but it did not help much in the Iraq scenario. They went around a UN Security Council resolution and invaded Iraq. What other means do you have except Russia and China?
BS: I think the west has learnt from the Afghanistan and Iraq experience, and from Libya’s, too. They know that a military strike does not always come with the result they hope for. I think the world is different now and it is no longer a unipolar system. I think that Russia and China now have a say in the international arena to the relief of most people in the world. Because we have suffered from one polar system and we’re happy with the emergence of the bipolar system and the BRICS. The world is changing.
RT: The US and their partners have a perfect, 100 per cent track record when it comes to removing the heads of foreign states that they want to remove. What makes you think that Syria has a different scenario?
BS: Russia has learnt from the Libyan scenario. Russia has changed the political scene of the world by making an excellent stand in support of people who decide their future. Is it democracy when foreign countries decide to move a ruler? Is this the way democracy should work? Or should it be people to decide, I mean in every country, not only Syria. Is it democracy to say to British people “you should move (PM) Cameron”, or is it the British people who should decide? Why does this not apply to Arab countries? Is it because of colonial hegemony and because the west does not believe Arab people are equal to western people and have the right to choose their own system? This is a question I pose. Democracy means people of a country should decide their future and who rules them.
RT: Why does so much weaponry go to Syria? What happens when the conflict is over and we have all these uncontrolled arms on the streets, the way it happened in Libya?
BS: You can’t say that the conflict is over unless all those arms are withdrawn from the streets and people. These arms are part of the conflict and they were smuggled into Syria to ignite the conflict. Smuggling money and arms is a huge part of the problem in Syria.
RT: Can you do something about this at the moment?
BS: The international community should also do something about this. Kofi Annan’s peace plan’s first item is stopping armaments and stopping violence from all parties and in all forms.
RT: Some skeptics say the reason the Syrian government is not allowing a humanitarian corridor in Homs is because it fears along with humanitarian aid will come something else. Is that true?
BS: No, we’ve been cooperating with humanitarian agencies all along but have not seen any humanitarian aid arriving in Syria. We cooperated absolutely in full.
RT: So if the humanitarian corridor opens in Homs right now?
BS: No, there is no need for a humanitarian corridor. Assistance that is coming is being distributed by the Red Cross.
RT:So allegations about people being badly in need of food and medical aid are an exaggeration?
BS: Yes, extremely exaggerated.
RT: You’re on the US blacklist of Syrian officials – how does that feel?
BS: Since 2005 they sent me many invitations from the US – I did not go because I don’t like (the way) they treat people at American airports. They “froze” my assets though I don’t have a single dollar, not just in the US – anywhere in the world. They may freeze as many assets as they like.

Scott Creighton – Syrian Destabilization Campaign Updates: Terrorist Attacks and Canceled Insurance

Yes folks, Hillary Clinton is not to be denied. When she promises her owners that she will get them into Syria to chop up the country and neoliberalize it for fun and profit, she means to make good on her promise no matter how many children have to die in the process.
And speaking of dead children, Clinton’s terrorist thugs in that country have reportedly killed two more children in a Damascus Countryside.
The terrorists are having some fun now. The list of pipelines and officials they have blown up this past week just grows and grows and not one single US MSM propaganda mill reports on any of it (unless they can find a way to blame it on Assad)

Uppgifter från Christoph Hörstel översatt till svenska på nyhetsbanken.se – Mood spionerar för Nato

En jordansk FN-observatör i Syrien säger att chefen för FN-obeservatörerna i Syrien (UNSMIS) är en spion. Jordaniern hävdar att general Robert Mood haft till uppgift att samla kritiska uppgifter och besöka militära baser för Nato:s syften.
Påståendena har dykt upp i syriska statliga medier, vilket indikerar att säkerhetskretsar har gett sitt samtycke till offentliggörande i Damaskus.
Källor säger att den norske generalen tog en FN-konvoj till staden Tartus i fredags, där inget våld rapporterats. Gruppen besökte inte mindre än fyra militära installationer tillhörande den syriska armén där utan att det finns något UNSMIS-mandat till detta. I Tartus finns en hamnanläggning som Ryssland hyr sedan många år. FN-inspektionen sker samtidigt som Hillary Clinton ställt till bråk om påstådda ryska helikopterleveranser. Storbritannien har nu dragit in sjöförsäkringen för det ryska fartyg i Nordsjön som är på väg till Syrien med några gamla helikoptrar som varit i Ryssland för planenlig reparation.
Dessutom gick general Moods konvoj i fredags också till Rastan, som inte heller är i närheten av striderna. Där körde han raka vägen till den syriska arméns militära installationer, återigen utan någon synbar koppling till Moods mandat.
Syrierna misstänker att geografiska data samlas för ändamål som inte rör UNSMIS – kanske kompletterande data till redan befintliga filer. Syriska tjänstemän misstänker dessutom att Mood letar efter platser där syriska myndigheterna håller krigsfångar. Medborgare från flera Nato-länder hålls fångna av syriska myndigheter. Från Damaskus säger man att de kommer att släppas i samma stund som dessa länder, bl.a. Frankrike medger att de skickats in på hemligt uppdrag i Syrien.
Flera kommentatorer påminner om likheterna med det sätt som FN:s vapeninspektörer (bl.a. svensken Rolf Ekéus) lät sig missbrukas till att spionera åt USA inför anfallet på Irak.
En grupp tyskar anställda av ett säkerhetsbolag tillfångatogs i Tartus för två veckor sedan. Tyskarna har tidigare deltagit i strider i Libyen . De höll på att lossa vapen och ammunition från ett kommersiellt fartyg på internationellt vatten med hjälp av två snabbgående båtar. Syriska analytiker är övertygade om att den tyska regeringen inte driver den verksamheten på egen hand, utan på uppdrag av Washington.

Veronika Krasheninnikova – Los Cabos plan for Syria: Using Russia to oust Assad – Den libanesiska militären, som den 27 april stoppade ett fartyg som var på väg från Libyen till den hamn i Libanon som ligger närmast staden Homs i Syrien full-lastat med vapen, lär ha fått besked av FN’s mellanöstern-representant Terje Rod-Larsen att att låta bli att stoppa fartyg som kommer från Libyen!

The White House has already acknowledged its key role in delivering arms for the Syrian insurgency. The shipments have been sponsored lavishly by Qatar and Saudi Arabia. US officials are also negotiating a “second front” with the Kurds in eastern Syria to draw Syria’s pro-government forces from the western part of the country, which is now home to a concentration of rebel forces. The much trumpeted Kofi Annan plan has actually done nothing more than buy the insurgents some time to get trained and receive their arms shipments.
They used to be described as ‘rabble,’ but I would no longer call them that,” says Jeoffrey White, a retired reconnaissance specialist. “What they look like now is an increasingly combat-efficient guerilla force.”

Syria: Setback for US interests, UN mission in muddy waters

Just in time for the G-20 Summit in Mexico, where the most critical topic will be Syria, clashes in Syria have calmed down after the last 10 days of heavy military campaign by the army against terrorist strongholds.
After successfully sealing Syria’s coastline against the usual influx of supplies for insurgents and terrorists, and also the closure of the Turkish-Syrian border, there has been substantial progress in recent days. Even Idlib, hitherto within easy reach from refugee camp bases inside Turkey, appears mostly cut off now – another major setback for the insurgency.

Saman Mohammadi – Syrians Prepare For A Long NATO Winter

The U.S. and Israel have tried to divide Syria and pit its people against their government so as to disguise their war of aggression against Syria as an internal populist uprising against Assad. They have instigated sectarian warfare in Syrian cities, broadcasted fake stories to the world, trained and deployed death squads, and assisted fanatical Islamist terrorists with financial, logistic, media, and military support.
Overthrowing Syria’s current government would be not a democratic or a humanitarian accomplishment. It would be another act of U.S./NATO aggression against a sovereign nation state in the Middle East. Prof. Michel Chossudovsky says, ”The objective of the US sponsored armed insurgency is –with the help of Israel– to ”Break Syria into Pieces.”

The NATO-Israeli-Islamist alliance in Syria is not a marriage of convenience with a short honeymoon, but a strategic and political partnership that has been long in the making. The U.S. has destroyed secular governments in the Middle East and replaced them with Islamic fundamentalist regimes to set the stage for a Clash of Civilizations between the West and Islam.
The goals for this secret and long-term policy are clear: 1) reduce the human population, 2) destroy sovereign and independent nation states, and 3) implement an authoritarian world government. Assad is a small victim of this grand vision. It’s a sacred mission that’s been planned to position America against Iran, and Israel against Islam, in a third world war – the last world war of the modern age.

6000 Blackwater Mercenaries In And Around Syria Ready To Begin Terror Campaign In Damascus

The preparation of 6000 Blackwater mercenaries by the US administration alongside Al-Qaeda fighters to strike into the heart of Damascus, filming the attacks in HD in order to publicise them online. The attacks will include shock and awe bomb/IED campaigns, executions, assassinations, targetting of high level officials, military and security installations, etc. It will be accompanied by a major coordinated media campaign, at the same time Syrian TV will be blacked out in Arab countries. The preparation for this has already been made, with an order from the Arab League for satellite providers in Arab states to black out Syrian TV. June 13th 2012.

Général Amin Hoteit –Syria: A Russian messenger missile – ger en ganska hoppfull bild, att risken för ett direkt militärt angrepp från Nato/väst är ganska liten.

After several months of aggressions against Syria and several billions invested, the balance sheet of Western campaigns is positive from a media point of view, but mediocre from a military angle. Worse! The Chinese, Russian and Iranian determination to guarantee Syria’s safety and the observance of International Law would generate such war costs as to sink the economies of those allowing themselves to be drawn in. Those who claim that their country’s direct military involvement in the region would amount to a simple “intervention,” are either foolhardy or driven by an irrational agenda.

Consequently, we can deduct that the military war against Syria is rather unlikely and that the terrorist war will not permit the aggressors to achieve their aims. On the contrary, it will generate losses that will wear them down, even if this should take some time. At this stage, we can return to the question asked above: why such an assembly of forces?
In our opinion, the answer lies in the fact that the aggressors’ camp, being aware of its failure, knows that the only way out will be a negotiated and peaceful solution. It also knows, however, that those who sit down at the negotiating table will only receive a share proportional to their gains on the ground and to the cards they hold in their hands. This explains why the aggressors’ camp seeks to assemble as much as possible to render its defeat more tolerable, now that its victory in Syria has entered the realm of fiction and that Russia sent off an invitation to negotiate via a code which can be deciphered by anyone who is familiar with the protocol: a missile which has lifted doubts, dispelled delusions and opened the way to peace.

Enligt Amin Hoteit lyckades man inte blockera syriska medier..

The scheme of strangling the Syrian media [5] was thwarted before it even got off the ground through a series of measures adapted to the circumstances and capable of protecting Syria’s right to make her voice heard.

UN suspends Syrian mission; tensions escalate

The situation in Syria continues to worsen as tensions mount between Moscow and Washington and the UN has suspended their observer mission in the country.
The latest development in Syria, the suspension of the UN Mission, comes on the heels of intensified efforts by Moscow and the international community to come to a peaceful resolution to the crisis with Moscow’s recent calls for an international conference on Syria.

The five permanent members of the UN Security Council are expected to hold talks on the sidelines of the G20 summit in beginning on Monday in Mexico.
Russia will continue to seek a peaceful resolution as it has from the very beginning of the conflict in Syria and apparently the US will continue to use the situation in Syria to increase tensions with the Russian Federation. One has to ask oneself; why?

Christoph Hörstel rapporterar om läget i Syrien enligt sina källor. 2-300 utlänningar tillhörande privata säkerhetsbolag (typ Blackwater) ska ha tagits tillfånga det senaste året, förutom utländsk militärpersonal i hundratal! 40-60 tyskar ska ha tillfångatagits sedan de tagits på bar gärning då de höll på att smuggla in vapen i landet.

Russia denies entering talks on political transition in Syria

”The Russians are not today attached to the person of Bashar al-Assad,” Fabius said on Friday, adding that the talks focus on a ”Yemen-style” political transition.
But Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Friday rejected the claims, saying that Moscow had not been discussing plans for a political transition in Syria that would include Assad’s departure from power.
”It’s not true that we are discussing Syria’s fate after Bashar Assad. We aren’t dealing with a regime change either through approving unilateral actions at the United Nations Security Council, nor through taking part in some political conspiracies,” Lavrov said following talks with his Iraqi counterpart in Moscow.

UN monitor chief says Syrian rebels being ”challenged”

Sergey Lavrov – On the Right Side of History – Western propaganda continues to distort Russia’s position in respect of the Syrian crisis. It accuses Moscow of supporting Damascus for profit motives, or even criminal solidarity. In this piece, Sergey Lavrov does not expound on his country’s strategic choices, but rather on the principles that underpin his diplomacy. He responds imperturbably to the inanities spouted by Western media, underscoring Moscow’s commitment to international law and its pledge to support people. Lavrov counterpoints the massive popular support enjoyed by President al-Assad and the illegitimacy of the sectarian armed opposition, sponsored from abroad.

There is a certain limit reached by crises in international relations that cannot be overstepped without causing damage to global stability. That is why work aimed at putting out regional fires, including intrastate conflicts, should be carried out as considerately as possible, with no double standards applied. Using a ‘sanctions bat’ leads to dead-end at all times. All parties involved in internal conflicts should be convinced that the international community will form a united front and act in accordance with strict principles in order to stop violence as soon as possible and to reach a mutually acceptable solution through comprehensive dialogue.
Russia is guided only by such principles with regard to intrastate crises, which explains our position on what is happening in Syria

Only by acting in this way we can keep the Middle East from sliding into the abyss of wars and anarchy and thus stay, as it has become fashionable to say, on the right side of history. We are sure that other formulas that involve external intervention in Syria – ranging from blocking TV channels that do not satisfy someone, to increasing arms supplies to opposition groups, to airstrikes – will not bring peace either to that country or to the region as a whole. And that means that those formulas will not be justified by history.

Friday night was a battle zone in Latakia. Everything breaks loose after midnight. Heavy gun battles near the National Tobacco factory, which employs hundreds of workers. I am so afraid of what would happen to that huge building complex? The terrorists are not targeting Army posts, and we have no tanks here. They keep attacking the Tobacco factory. That is a gov’t establishment, but not military. Just like the attacks on oil pipelines, electric stations, they are trying to destroy infrastructure and assets. This is about destruction and chaos.
