Det har varit knäpptyst idag på Sveriges Radio Ekot (i alla fall på webben) om Syrien efter de senaste 2-3 dagarnas förnyade propaganda- och lögnoffensiv. Kanske var det så att något var planerat till den 15:e, som Thierry Meyssan varnade för (se inlägget 12 jun nedan), Cecilia Uddén kom med en våldsam satsning den 14:e och samma dag släppte Amnesty en ny anti-Syrienrapport, men att man backade av någon anledning. Man gör nog klokast i att anta att detta är ett tecken på att de makter som har regeringsbyte i Syrien som bestämt mål, och som har kontroll över svensk Public Service, laddar om eller justerar planerna snarare än att de är på väg att ge upp.
Om man tittar på de två följande citaten så finns det all anledning att vara mer uppmärksam än nånsin på vad som kan vara på gång. Först något som någon skrivit på facebook. Från och med ikväll kommer inte syrisk TV att kunna sända via satellit till övriga världen. Detta har Syrien-fientliga makter sett till därför att inget ska få störa deras påhittade version av vad som sker. Det är mycket viktigt att vi är vaksamma. Detta är avgörande tider för oss alla, och denna blockering av nyheter som kommer från Syrien kan mycket väl vara ett tecken på att en ny attack mot Syrien är på gång. Vi måste alla inta högsta beredskapsläge och motarbeta alla försök att förvrida sanningen.

Alert to all the friends of truth. What is happening in Syria has been planned since decades by US administration . Since long there has been a plan to weaken and dismantle Syria because Syria is a people and land growing towards independence and sovereignty. As of tonight, Syria will not be able to broadcast- world wide -through satellite , and this is intentional because the corporate media -whether al Jazeera or other- want to feel free to fabricate news that will serve their agenda without being checked or controlled . It is very important for us to stay on the alert . These are crucial times for us all , and this black out on the news coming from Syria is because another chapter in the attack on Syria might just start . We have to stay all on the alert and turn down all the attempts at disfiguring the truth .
We announce from here and refute-as forged and fake- all news that speak about slaughters that the Syrian army or authorities are accused of committing . We declare all such news coming from Al Jazeera and thugs combined, as fabricated and fake , and all the visual material and testimonies that go with it fake and fabricated as well. There is no need -each time -to react and deny and rectify and waste time. We know for certain the enemies of Syria and of the Syrian people.
We need to be creative and innovative and win this media tug of war by doubling our efforts and by exploring and expounding and propagating as much truth as we can to turn down all the nasty, vicious schemes of the World Order.
We salute all committed brothers and sisters and all brave truth tellers and seekers who are serving the cause of man by not allowing lies to spread and our nation to be torn again and subject to invasion and occupation and theft.
Enligt Daily Telegraph har representaner för syriska rebeller just varit på besök i Washington och bl.a. diskuterat leveranser av tunga vapen. Tydligen ska ett G20-möte hållas nästa vecka där USA/Storbritannien förväntas göra ett nytt försök att få Rysslands Putin att ge upp sitt motstånd mot utländsk ingripande i Syrien. Gissa om man kan vänta sig att nästa ”massaker” kommer att ske dagen innan eller samma dag som detta möte!

telegraph.co.uk – US holds high-level talks with Syrian rebels seeking weapons in Washington
The consultations come ahead of next week’s G20 meeting in Los Cabos, Mexico where British and US officials are expected to make a last-ditch attempt to get the Russian President Vladimir Putin to intervene in the Syria crisis.
Privately, western diplomats admit they now harbour scant hopes of forcing a change of heart on Russia, which has steadfastly refused to bow to US and British pressure to do more to arrest Syria’s slide into sectarian civil war.
Senior Middle Eastern diplomatic sources said that Libyan-supplied weapons, paid for by Saudi Arabia and Qatari government funds and private donations, had already been stockpiled in anticipation of the ”inevitable” intervention needed to end the Assad regime.
”The intervention will happen. It is not a question of ‘if’, but ‘when’. The Libyans are willing to provide the anti-tank weapons, others are prepared to pay for it,” the source said
proponents of arming the rebels are now arguing forcefully that US inaction leaves Mr Obama vulnerable to accusations from the Republican camp that he is ‘leading from behind’ at the cost of thousands of innocent Syrian lives – a charge that would stick if there was another massacre.

Lavrov: Russia Opposes Foreign Interferences in Syria’s Affairs
Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Friday reiterated his country’s rejection of having the situation in Syria inflamed by some parties because of the rejection of dialogue and the one-sided stances.
”It’s important not to pour oil on the fire through the one-sided actions and steps or the emotional statements and through the direct instigation of the use of force by the opposition and its rejection of dialogue with the government,” Lavrov told a joint press conference with his Iraqi counterpart, Hoshiyar Zibari.

Chris Marsden – BBC world news editor: Houla massacre coverage based on opposition propaganda
As quietly as possible, BBC world news editor Jon Williams has admitted that the coverage of last month’s Houla massacre in Syria by the world’s media and his own employers was a compendium of lies.
“In Houla, and now in Qubair, the finger has been pointed at the Shabiha, pro-government militia. But tragic death toll aside, the facts are few: it’s not clear who ordered the killings—or why.”
“Given the difficulties of reporting inside Syria, video filed by the opposition on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube may provide some insight into the story on the ground. But stories are never black and white—often shades of grey. Those opposed to President Assad have an agenda. One senior Western official went as far as to describe their YouTube communications strategy as ‘brilliant’. But he also likened it to so-called ‘psy-ops’, brainwashing techniques used by the US and other military to convince people of things that may not necessarily be true.”
Williams is in a position to know of what he speaks.
It may well be the case that Williams’ mea culpa is motivated by a personal concern at the role he and his colleagues are being asked to play as mouthpieces for the campaign for regime change in Syria. But with his comments buried away on his blog, elsewhere on the BBC everything proceeds according to script.

Imperialism and the Houla massacre
Media outlets carrying such reports are acting as nothing more than propaganda agencies for US intervention. The US and its allies aim to intimidate Russia and China into abandoning their opposition to US-led intervention, then oust Assad and replace him with a pro-US proxy regime.
The Houla massacre was an integral part of this campaign. Less than ten days before, it had been announced that the US was coordinating a surge in weapons supplies delivered to Syrian opposition forces, paid by the Saudi and Qatari monarchies.
