Vad är detta!? Ett inslag på Ekot idag som i huvudsak för fram budskapet att Syriens president Al-Assad har starkt stöd. Och också idag, en artikel i DN – Johan Croneman: Det går att göra journalistik så enkel att ­ingen förstår – om att den svenska mediabilden är alltför ensidig och förenklad när det gäller Syrien! Är det ett försök att reparera propaganda-apparaten hjälpligt? Att ta ett litet steg närmare sanningen därför att man är rädda att man gått för långt och riskerar att tappa all trovärdighet? Att något avgörande inträffat, som att den onda kärnan av styrande i västs dolda skuggregering skulle ha tvingats bort eller liknande gör man nog klokt i att inte räkna med i första taget. Och särskilt inte efter dagens uttalande av USA’s försvarsminister Panetta – ‘Assad better get the hell out’ – Panetta US Defense Sec. Leon Panetta has advice for Syria’s President Assad: “If you want to be able to protect yourself and your family, you’d better get the hell out now.”
Den mannen borde naturligtvis arresteras omedelbart för de uttalandena!
Leon Panetta Threatens the Family of Assad

Threatening the lives of national leaders is almost commonplace with American politicians,but threatening the lives of their families is beyond reprehensible…

Shamus Cooke – The Next Stage in the Destruction of Syria

”According to the latest opinion poll commissioned by The Doha Debates, Syrians are more supportive of their president with 55% not wanting him to resign.” (January 2, 2012).
This should be of zero surprise. Syrians have seen Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya destroyed by U.S.-style ”liberation.” Americans should know better too — and many do — regardless of their media’s blatantly criminal behavior.
The United States is using a strategy in Syria that has been perfected over the years, starting with Afghanistan (in the 1980’s) Yugoslavia, and most recently in Libya: arming small paramilitary groups loyal to U.S. interests that attack the targeted government — including terrorist bombings — and when the attacked government defends itself, the U.S. cries ”genocide” or ”mass murder,” while calling for foreign military intervention.

Sharmine Narwani – Debate on Syria: Chemical Weapons, Foreign Intervention, Regime Change and More… Wednesday, Jul 25 2012
Participants in the Voice of Russia (UK) radio discussion on Syria included Jonathan Steele, Guardian columnist, foreign correspondent and author; Nadim Shehadi, Associate fellow of the Middle East and North Africa programme for Chatham House, London; Gumer Isaev, head of the St Petersburg Centre for Modern Middle East studies – and myself.

The discussion was broad, but focused largely on recent events inside the country: armed clashes in the major cities, Syria’s chemical weapons cache, foreign intervention, the militarization of the conflict, use of information warfare to create perceptions, regime change and even whether Syrian President Bashar al-Assad still enjoys popularity.

Michael Chossudovsky – Humanitarian Military Intervention in Syria? Who is Behind the Atrocities?

Whereas the government bears a burden of responsibility pertaining to the conduct of its military operations in urban areas directed against the rebels, the gruesome human rights record of the US-NATO supported ”Free Syrian Army” (FSA) is unequivocal. Amply documented, the killings of innocent civilians were not carried by the government but, quite deliberately, by the Free Syrian Army (FSA).
These killings were implemented as part of a diabolical intelligence operation, which consisted in blaming the Syrian government for the atrocities committed by rebel forces.

When the truth finally surfaces, it is not President Bashar al-Assad who should be held responsible but precisely the Obama administration and Leon Panetta. These are threats directed against a sovereign country.”

Well, thanks to a head’s up from one of my readers, we have a new bit of disinformation to add to the growing list of efforts made by the international complicit press to demonize the Assad government in Syria. A paper in Austria has taken an image from Homs and Photoshopped a family onto it and now they claim it’s from Aleppo.

Christoph R. Hörstel – US foreign policy adventurism approaching an all-time high (Op-Ed)

Whenever the US warns there is an imminent danger of violence, even of a massacre or atrocities, it pays to take notice. Such predictions seem to have an almost uncanny knack of turning out to be accurate. So recent US “concerns” could mean bad news.

a retired senior officer of the Egyptian army residing in Tunisia appears to have been functional in completing training for US-guided mercenaries and “Al-Qaeda” personnel since 2009. In the same year, the first advance parties of US agents arrived in Turkey to get acquainted with the area and its people. This information was obtained by Syrian officers from the not-so-small number of captured foreign fighters. Their various ID cards from Turkey, Libya, Lebanon and Jordan, among others, have been presented in many TV reports.
About the hundreds of armed but non-uniformed personnel crossing freely, uncounted and unchecked, into Syria across all borders in March 2011 the defected correspondents of Al-Jazeera – among others – have amply spoken out.
Since an operation of this size does not appear to be set up on an ad-hoc basis – nor could it be – it is no wonder that those well-versed in the history of the thought and planning of US foreign policy know that Syria scenarios are more than 100 years old and include complete re-drawings of the regional political map.

Scott Creighton – Syrian Destabilization Campaign: Another Massacre While Olympics Distract?

Remember the Olympics in China back in 2008? Georgia’s President Saakashvili launched an attack on South Ossetia while the world was busy watching the opening ceremonies. In the process they killed hundreds of people and quite a few Russian peace-keepers. Our “news’ didn’t pay any attention to our puppet Saakashvili bombing Ossetian civilians and peace keepers, they just got focused on it after Russia and South Ossetia retaliated.

While the main stream corporatist media outlets are busy spinning up more ridiculous “activists say” journalism (see here and here for starters), thinking people are worried that the distraction caused by the Olympic games may just provide the imperialist NATO raiders just enough cover for them to try yet another massacre-marketing strategy move in Syria.

Webster Tarpley, US-backed gangs doomed to fail in Syria, från Press TV men jag har bara länk till facebook ännu

I think the big development of the last week or so is this landmark statement by Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov that the United States policy is to justify terrorism. The US justifies terrorism and says Lavrov the US negotiating pasture from Susan Rice at the United Nations is essentially the United States will continue to support terrorism until the Security Council does what the US and NATO want and Lavrov deplored that position.
This is a very important moment I think in terms of clarifying what is going on. It seems to me now that it would be in order to follow up on that some kind of resolution in the Security Council or the General Assembly at the very least, condemning the United States for supporting terrorism in the person of al-Qaeda as you mentioned before.
This has now gone so far that a whole country is in crisis in Europe and it is Germany as your account mentioned the BND, the Bundesnachrichtendienst has pointed to the overwhelming presence of al-Qaeda and you have got the Frankfurter Allgemeine, Die Welt and Bild-Zeitung, one of the biggest tabloids in Europe, all of them are taking I think important steps to show that the massacres in Syria are actually the handiwork of the anti-Assad forces, that is not the army and Assad who are doing these killings but it is the opposition and they do it with the desire to provoke a foreign intervention

reuters.com – Exclusive: Secret Turkish nerve center leads aid to Syria rebels

Turkey has set up a secret base with allies Saudi Arabia and Qatar to direct vital military and communications aid to Syria’s rebels from a city near the border, Gulf sources have told Reuters.
News of the clandestine Middle East-run ”nerve centre” working to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad underlines the extent to which Western powers – who played a key role in unseating Muammar Gaddafi in Libya – have avoided military involvement so far in Syria.
”It’s the Turks who are militarily controlling it. Turkey is the main co-ordinator/facilitator. Think of a triangle, with Turkey at the top and Saudi Arabia and Qatar at the bottom,” said a Doha-based source.
”The Americans are very hands-off on this. U.S. intel(ligence) are working through middlemen. Middlemen are controlling access to weapons and routes.”

Christof Lehmann – Syrian Government and Military reclaim Sovereignty and liberate civilians throughout the Country

After months of Syrian, Russian and Chinese diplomatic initiatives have failed to stop the anti Syrian coalitions massive financial, and military support of a wide variety of state sponsored terrorist organizations which are either branded euphemistically as “Free Syrian Army” or as “Al Qaeda Terrorists” when their utility is to argue for the protection of civilians, the Syrian government and military have taken up the responsibility to reestablish national sovereignty, security for civilians and the rule of law in areas that were held by the Western-Backed Terror Consortium. Western Media cry wolf, reporting about a massive military operation. In fact, the Syrian counter insurgency strategy is as effective as it is a de-escalation strategy, more humane than any international body of law would recommend.

Återigen finns det anledning att varna för en false flag-attack med kemiska vapen.
WARNING: Terrorists in Aleppo wearing gas masks

Tony Cartalucci – Syrians: NATO-backed Militants Seen Donning Gas Masks, Reports of Libyan chemical weapons brought in through Turkey, caches discovered in Damascus point to possible false flag.

For a Western media so fond of reporting ”activist” accounts, rumors, and even fabrications, and with all the talk of an impending ”massacre” in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo, reports of so-called ”Free Syrian Army” militants seen trying on gas masks, along with reports of Libyan chemical weapon caches & equipment being discovered in Damascus is surely headline news.

Many Syrians and outside observers alike, fear that militants may deploy chemical weapons in one or more locations around Syria, creating a mass-casualty event to subsequently be blamed on the government by a coordinated Western media disinformation campaign.

German intel.: Qaeda behind terror in Syria

The German Federal Intelligence Service (BND) has revealed that al-Qaeda is responsible for numerous terrorist attacks in Syria, including the Houla massacre.
The BND estimates that al-Qaeda has carried out “about 90 terrorist attacks” in Syria between late last December and early July, German daily Die Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung wrote in an article on July 16.
The revelation was made public by the German government in response to a parliamentary question.
The German government also confirmed that it had received numerous reports from the BND on al-Qaeda’s involvement in the May 25 massacre in the Syrian town of Houla in the central province of Homs, in which 108 people, including dozens of children and women, were killed execution-style.
However, the German government stated that the reports were supposed to remain classified ”by reason of national interest.”

Michel Chossudovsky – The US-NATO War on Syria: Western Naval Forces Confront Russia Off the Syrian Coastline?

War propaganda, namely media lies, constitutes the most powerful instrument of warfare.
Without media disinformation, the US-NATO led war agenda would collapse like a deck of cards. The legitimacy of the war criminals in high office would be broken.
It is therefore essential to disarm not only the mainstream media but also a segment of the self proclaimed ”progressive” alternative media, which has provided legitimacy to NATO’s ”Responsibility to protect” (R2P) mandate, largely with a view to dismantling the antiwar movement.
The road to Tehran goes through Damascus. A US-NATO sponsored war on Iran would involve, as a first step, the destabilization of Syria as a nation state. Military planning pertaining to Syria is an integral part of the war on Iran agenda.
A war on Syria could evolve towards a US-NATO military campaign directed against Iran, in which Turkey and Israel would be directly involved.
It is crucial to spread the word and break the channels of media disinformation.
A critical and unbiased understanding of what is happening in Syria is of crucial importance in reversing the tide of military escalation towards a broader regional war.
Our objective is ultimately to dismantle the US-NATO-Israeli military arsenal and restore World Peace.

US bent on destabilizing political process in Syria, Press TV has conducted an interview with Mr. Issa al-Chaer, Syrian Social Club, London

Al-Chaer: It is very, very important that we have an international acknowledgment of the Western intervention because at the end of the day we have to look at it as public opinion we need to gain. And as you can see this war on Syria is actually led by four types of categories, which are: a media war, a logistic war, an economic and political war.

Neo-Conservatives have ”called on” US President Barack Obama to assist in the establishment of ”safe zones” inside of Syria in a recent letter published by the ”Foreign Policy Initiative” (FPI) and the ”Foundation for the Defense of Democracies” (FDD). Both faux-institutions are corporate, foundation, and government funded clearinghouses, extensions of larger think-tanks like the American Enterprise Institute, for corporate-financier driven agendas, more specifically, wars. They serve the sole purpose of manufacturing consensus behind an agenda that has little or no support within the general public.

Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey – Syria: The cemetery of western credibility

The villain in the story is not President Assad or his Government, backed by the majority of the Syrian people – he and they are desperately trying to defend themselves from terrorists, armed by the FUKUS-GCC Axis (France, UK, US and the Gulf Cooperation Council, cowardly Arab traitor states insulting Islam with their murderous collaboration and treachery).
The villain is the FUKUS-GCC Axis, a temple of evil, cynicism and an insult to the international community, a cabal of murderers, terrorist-lovers and terrorists with zero respect for international law and zero credibility. Chapter one was Iraq, Chapter two was Libya, Chapter three is Syria.
However, the nearer to the main target (Iran) the FUKUS-GCC gets, the more obvious it becomes that their demonic plan is doomed to failure and the nearer their leaders are to a prison cell.

“Military tacticians know the tactic of swarming and swarming means that you can throw a lot of inferior forces at an enemy with the point being to create chaos and confusion in which more qualified forces can then go on and take certain key points,” Tarpley said.
“The reports that I have now are that NATO brought in thousands and thousands of fighters from Libya in particular but also from Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, a whole swat of countries and they’ve essentially gone to the bottom of the barrel of the al-Qaeda sort of patsy milieu in these countries and they’ve thrown them across the borders,” he added.

Video 18 min, intervju från 8 juli – Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s exclusive interview with German TV

Waqqaf: I think the ultimate goal, first of all, is to weaken the Syrian government. If it can fall for its own internal reasons which can be induced from the outside, then all the best; if not; then let’s change the game rules.
Now or a month ago, they started this WMD issue, the chemical weapons; they are saying that they are a bit concerned that it might fall in the wrong hands and what we are seeing basically is that there is some sort of a paradigm shift that is taking place.

Press TV has conducted an interview with Kevin Barrett, author and Islamic studies expert, Armed groups destruct Syria on behalf of Zionism: Analyst

Barrett: Well this is part of a destabilization campaign in the Middle East and I think there are two overall strategic reasons for this.

Aleppo: a firsthand account, Aleppo resident Fatima Banauwi, an Aleppo University employee, has agreed to an interview with the Voice of Russia

Well, the prices have gone up. The rebels attack cars with food provisions and other products, but they don’t use them. They either throw everything out or burn it. Why do they do that? It makes no sense. Maybe to make the local population protest against the government, I don’t know.
Today in the morning they were threatening the owners of some bakeries. They put huge gas tanks in front of the shops and said “If you open the shop today, we’ll blow it up!” Then they blame the authorities for us sitting here without bread.
But all in all, we manage. It’s Ramadan right now, so we still go visit each other, celebrate together, try to support each other. We believe that everything will get settled and the army will take care of the bandits. They can’t frighten us!

Den fortsatta fixeringen vid och besattheten av dessa kemiska vapen från Syriens fienders media kan inte ses som annat än ett sätt att förbereda de hjärntvättade medborgarna i västländerna på att en attack med kemiska vapen kan komma att ske. Denna kommer naturligtvis omedelbart att skyllas på Syriens regering medan det är väst som ligger bakom!

Som ett svar på media-offensiven gick representanter för Syriens regering ut och talade om att man inte tänker använda några kemiska vapen, såvida inte landet utsätts för en attack från utlandet. Detta lillfinger såg de moraliskt förfallna västmedierna naturligtvis genast till att missbruka, exempel: ”Bara det faktum att Syrien öppet erkände innehav av kemiska vapen igår tyder på att regimen banar väg för framtida bruk, säger Ghazi Hajjousef, som själv leder en enhet inom oppositionsstyrkorna”. Vad jag vet har Syriens ledning aldrig sagt att man inte innehar sådana vapen.

Foreign and Expatriates Ministry: Some Media Outlets Deliberately Put Its Statement Delivered by Makdissi Out of Context – ska ha publicerats på sana.sy men den sidan verkar ha problem igen efter att ha kommit tillbaka efter en tidigare attack för några dagar sen, denna text kommer från en facebooksida.

The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry issued a statement commenting on how some negative media outlets dealt with its previous statement delivered by spokesman Dr. Jihad Makdissi, deliberately taking it out of context and portraying it as a declaration of possessing non-traditional weapons by Syria.
The Ministry said that the goal of the statement and the press conference wasn’t to declare but rather to respond to a methodical media campaign targeting Syria to prepare world public opinion for the possibility of military intervention under the false premise of weapons of mass destruction (similar to what happened with Iraq) or the possibility of using such weapons against terrorist groups or civilians, or transporting them to a third party.
The statement affirmed that such allegations are completely false, noting that nonetheless they are dangerous allegations as they are made by the same sides that are rallying against Syria in mass media and international circles, noting that these are the same sides that fabricated lies about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction which turned out to be false later.
The Ministry said that Makdissi’s statements were meant to explain the state’s general defensive policies in response to false media speculations and allegations, stressing the need to commit to precision and professionalism in news related to Syria and putting them in the proper context.

Tony Cartalucci – URGENT: West Spreads Syrian WMDs Lies For Foreign Intervention, As NATO’s proxy terrorists collapse in both Damascus and now the northern city of Aleppo, Israel and Turkey prepare impending attack

Hysterical propaganda has increasingly amplified since early Monday when the Syrian government’s Foreign Minister Jihad Makdissi insisted that if Syria had any unconventional weapons, they would be under strict security and only used against foreign aggression. Makdissi went on to clarify further his statement by insisting that his comments in no way implied Syria even has such weapons.
Despite this, the Western media has begun the all too familiar WMD-mantra, heard in the lead up to Iraq, where bold-faced lies and fabrications based on knowingly dubious intelligence sources, were picked specifically to tell the narrative the West sought to sell the public

Such a non-mainstream affirmation needs demonstrative proof…

Lisa Karpova The FUKUS axis versus Syria and civilization

I can no longer tolerate getting these reports that people who previously lived in peace, tranquility and harmony now have to face terrorism, beheadings, kidnappings, mutilation and a myriad of other horrors. And it seems odd, too, that all of this is happening in countries whose people previously gave refuge to other beleaguered, tortured, murdered peoples.
Throughout the continuing horror of terrorist attacks, the Syrian people have been amazing. A source says that life is normal in Damascus, people are voluntarily joining in to clean up…adding that authorities, along with locals, are also chasing terrorists down in the streets.
They don’t even know this stupid term FSA (Free Syrian Army), they merely refer to them as what they are: armed terrorists. Refuse from God knows where…
When western diplomats engage in high-level meetings about international affairs, making irrational, unreasonable, pig-headed, intransigent demands, who are they representing?
Simply put, they are the minions of the power elite, the transnational corporations…those who think they are the gods of this world. They certainly do not represent the people of the world, those who actually labour and create the wealth. Those who create the wealth have largely been dispossessed of it.

Thierry Meyssan om den senaste veckans händelser – The battle of Damascus has begun

Western and Gulf powers have launched the largest secret war operation since the Contra war in Nicaragua. The Battle of Damascus is not intended to topple President Bashar al-Assad, but to fracture the Syrian Army to better ensure the domination of Israel and the U.S. over the Middle East. While the city is bracing for a new assault by foreign mercenaries

Over the past five days Washington and Paris have launched an attack operation dubbed “Damascus Volcano and Syrian Earthquake.” It is not a new campaign of aerial bombardment, but a secret military operation, similar to the one used in Central America during the Reagan era.

Webster Tarpley – NATO kill teams attempt assault on Syria

Hostile intelligence agencies have stepped up their operations directed against Syria. It has long been known that CIA officers are acting as traffic managers in southern Turkey, directing the flow of weapons purchased by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates to the most aggressive al-Qaeda death squads operating on Syrian territory.
The Washington Post now admits that the CIA is also providing command, control, and communications for the death squad coalition. This paper also reports that “scores of Israeli intelligence officers are also operating along Syria’s border.” Steve Heydemann of the US Institute of Peace revealed that his organization, a branch of the State Department, had been meeting with a stable of 50 Syrian opposition types to plan the post-Assad.
To the acute disappointment of the NATO mindbenders, the Syrian state did not collapse starting on July 18, and has continued to demonstrate robust capabilities for self-defense. This now makes it necessary for NATO to regain momentum through a steady stream of news reports which are supposed to convince the naive viewer that the Ba’ath party regime is quickly coming to an end and that the old regime in Syria is collapsing.
This continuing intelligence barrage will mix real but exaggerated events, defections, etc., with total fabrications and Big Lies. NATO diplomats have been helping by furnishing wildly manic reports to the controlled media, generally alleging that Russia has decided to terminate its support for President Assad. It is standard practice for the most fantastic rumors to be reported as solid fact. Intelligent people who do not want to be duped must raise their threshold of skepticism accordingly.

Therefore, at least for the next several weeks, we may see continued attempts to destroy the Syrian state below the threshold of conventional war, without calling in NATO bombers and infantry brigades. In these efforts, information warfare, media manipulation, video fakery, and similar techniques are destined to play a central role along with terrorism, assassinations, and high-profile military stunts. But by understanding how NATO wages psychological warfare, it is possible to defeat the aggressors.

På torsdagen lade Ryssland och Kina in sitt veto mot ett brittiskt förslag om sanktioner mot Syrien i FN:s säkerhetsråd. Det var tredje gången Nato-staterna återkom med förslaget att låta Syrien gå samma väg som Libyen – down the gutter.

Syriens FN-ambassadör påpekade det häpnadsväckandei att FN:s säkerhetsrådet inte kunde förmå sig till ett fördömande av terroristdåden i Damaskus som utplånat delar av statsledningen.
Han tackade samtidigt för att generalsekreteraren Ban Ki-moons och f d generalsekreteraren Kofi Annans klart fördömt dessa dåd.

MOSCOW: Russia is concerned over plans announced by the United States to influence Damascus bypassing the UN Security Council.
“If such statements and such plans are elements of real politics, it sends quite a troubling signal to all of us, prompting us to think how the international community is going to respond to international conflicts,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said at a press briefing in Moscow on Friday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin opposes any action related to Syria not authorized by the United Nations Security Council, his spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.
“In the Russian president’s opinion, any attempt to act without the [UN] Security Council’s approval will be inefficient and will undermine the authority of this international organization,” the spokesman said.
After Russia and China vetoed the Western-backed UN Security Council resolution, U.S. Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice said that the United States and its partners “have no choice but to look to partnerships and actions outside of this council to protect the Syrian people.”
Putin met with members of Russia’s Security Council on Friday to discuss the latest developments on Syria, including the veto.
“Members of Russia’s Security Council stressed that attempts to link the aggravating situation in Syria to Russia’s stance were inappropriate and inadmissible,” Peskov said.

Syria: the real situation, Letter from First Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates in the Arab Republic of Syria, Walid Al Moallem, to Kofi Anan

Dear Sir,
I read your letter, dated 13/07/2012, addressed to the Secretary General of the United Nations, in which you refer to the tragic reports from the village of Al Tremseh, near Hama and the use of guns, tanks and helicopters by part of the Syrian Government. I regret that you should have based your position on a single source of information and one which is inaccurate.
I hoped you would verify reports from the Syrian Government before adopting them, so you could see the truth of the facts, noting that once we attended to the request of the observer mission to visit Al Tremseh the visit was, in fact, held on a date set by them, on 14/07/2012. What happened in the village of Al Tremseh near Hama, is that dozens of members of armed terrorist groups invaded the village and settled there, terrorizing the civilian residents and creating a command headquarters, weapons depots and places of torture of hostages, attacking more than one point of the security forces concentrated on the outskirts of the village, which required a response from the security forces at 5:00 in the morning of Thursday, 12/07/2012.

Stefan Lindgren – Fel analys av Syrien

”Slutspels”-scenariot, som diplomaterna intalat journalisterna och som de nu själva tror på när de läser det, är antagligen helt fel. Eftersom de stora västliga mediakoncernerna är avskurna från verkligheten på plats och helt beroende av terroristernas ”nyhetsförmedling” är det möjligt för ett gäng CIA-tränade webbtekniker att skapa en virtuell bild av slutstriden om Damaskus. Paralleller till Tripoli tycks slående.
I själva verket kan det som nu inträffat – bombdådet som dödade Syriens försvarsminister och biträdande försvarsminister – vara början till slutet för terroristerna.

Everybody is talking about Damascus and wants to know what is really going on in Damascus.
After their failure in many Syrian cities, it is the turn of Damascus..
Damascus like any other Syrian city has recently witnessed the presence of so many armed men. They wanted to take control over it. The plan started 3 days ago. The explosion yesterday was a part from this plan. The Syrian army arrested terrorists from Arab nationalities in Damascus. They have confessed about this plan. The army immediately surrounded the districts where it was planned to controlled them. Now, there are clashes between the Syrian army and those armed men in some districts of Damascus. Other places of the capital are living a normal life. Today, there are news about arresting 150 Afghan terrorists.
Damascus is their last chance. That is why this media has become so mad after the beginning of the events of Damascus. Many lies, many fabrications, many gossips will be published about the Publican Guards, president Al-Assad, and the capital itself such as saying that there are clashes between the squads of the Republican Guards or that the ”fsa” has controlled this place or that.
It must be mentioned that the armed men are existing among the civilians. This means that the army might take a while to clean those districts in order not to kill innocent Syrians.
This is in brief what is going on in Damascus.

Christof Lehmann – Syria – Declarations of War

The “terrorists” in Syria are full-fledged, fully operational NATO armies and death squads under the coordination of NATO and allied nations Special Operations Forces who, as we know, have been deployed inside Syria before August 2011 already. This is in deed the true “State Sponsored Terrorism”. Remember that Syria was positioned as one of the main sponsors of terrorism ? And look at whom NATO has unleashed in Syria. Do you also feel that you are being lied to ?

I think its high time to cut through all the euphemisms, positioning and scapegoating of diplomacy and propaganda and call a spade for a spade. All that is required to make the war in Syria a war is that the war alliance is honest enough to make it official. A declaration of war by the USA/NATO/Gulf Crackpot-Dictator Council and their Al Qaeda and Muslim Brother Brigades. What are they waiting for ?
Right, there was of course this issue with the National Defense Authorization Act that must somehow be repealed because materially supporting Al Qaeda could result in being arrested and tried by a military tribunal. Too bad for Obama, Clinton, Westerwelle the Cliffhanger, the Al Khalifa´s, the Saud´s and other crackpot dictators.The NDAA must be repealed before a declaration of war and official Al Qaeda alliance is possible.

In not only failing to condemn the bombings and the terrorists behind them, but actually lauding such attacks as being emblematic of the west’s geopolitical agenda in the region, the political leadership of the United States and NATO reveal themselves to be rhetorical terrorists, as well as cheerleaders for some of the very same terrorists who have killed U.S. and British troops.

Calls for Assad to quit ‘rooted in hopelessness’ – Lavrov

On the same day that a suicide bomber killed the Syrian Minister of Defense, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov warned that supporting the Syrian opposition while demanding that President Bashar al-Assad step down will lead to an impasse.
”If the policy based on support for the opposition continues – a policy leading to an impasse, since Assad will not go on his own – and all of these mantra calls that he must step down are rooted in hopelessness,”Lavrov told reporters in Moscow.

Kanske har Tony Cartalucci rätt, att det finns anledning att misstänka att den kombinerade militär och media-attack i stil med den som användes vid attacken mot Tripoli förra året som Thierry Meyssan – NATO preparing vast disinformation campaigndenna blogg 12 jun – varnat för sen mitten av juni nu kan vara på väg att verkställas. Efter att de väpnade gängen sen ett par dagar terroriserat Damaskus, vilket västmedierna var kvicka att kalla – ”Slaget om Damaskus har börjat” – och efter bombdådet idag som dödade den syriske försvarsministern kommer det nu rapporter om att syriska websidor varit nere, även om jag just nu får upp de som det länkas till här bredvid. Vilket skulle kunna följas av att TV-kanaler tas ner och ersätts av falska med propaganda om att presidenten flyr och att slaget är förlorat osv.!

URGENT REPOST: NATO preparing vast disinformation campaign
Member States of NATO and the GCC are preparing a coup d’état and a sectarian genocide in Syria. If you want to prevent these crimes, you should act now: circulate this article on the Internet and alert your elected officials.

NATO has failed categorically to sell UNSC mandated military intervention to an increasingly unreceptive global public. With fighting reported in Damascus and the Western media and the so-called ”Free Syrian Army” hailing it as the ”final battle” despite zero tactical victories in nearly a year and a half of fighting, the stage is being set instead for a massive psychological operation.
Such an operation was warned against in mid-June by Thierry Meyssan – and provides a somber warning more pertinent now than ever. Please re-read, re-post, & re-tweet this article – ensure that NATO’s ”Mermaid Dawn” moment in Syria turns into a ”Bay of Pigs” defeat instead.

Syria, Damascus / The explosion occurred inside the building, not outside. A suicide bomber was one of the working personel in this building. And it’s impossible that small islamic group or FSA can be responsible for this kind of terroristic operation. It is clear that only foreign special organisations have ability to organize this kind of operation. And all these operations are accompanied by a huge lie in the media. Now they are publishing fake news about the defection of some units of army in Damascus and about few explosions in different areas of Damascus. Also it is fake news that armed groups took under control two or more areas of Damascus. For this purpose, ”hackers” attacked the Facebook page of Syrian television Adduniya and site of news agency SANA during last week. Now there are reports that they are trying to block a broadcasting of Syrian TV stations on Syrian territory.

Assad’s brother-in-law and defense minister killed by suicide bomber bodyguard

Syrian Defense Minister Gen. Daoud Rajha was killed by a suicide bombing attack at a national security building in Damascus. His deputy – Assad’s brother-in-law Assef Shawkat – has also been mortally wounded by the blast.
Another prominent governmental figure targeted by the attack is Syrian intelligence chief Hisham Bekhtyar. Bekhtyar is currently undergoing surgery for injuries sustained in the blast, a security source told Reuters.
The bomber worked as a bodyguard for President Bashar Assad’s inner circle, the news agency reports its sources as saying.

Bomb attack hits security building in Syrian capital

A bomb attack has been carried out in the Syrian capital, Damascus, targeting a security building.
The bombing, which was carried out on Wednesday, comes a day after two explosions rocked Damascus.
No further details have been reported from the latest attack in the Syrian capital, yet.

Ten days ago Hillary Clinton warned:
”The sooner there can be an end to the violence and a beginning of a political transition process, not only will fewer people die, but there is a chance to save the Syrian state from a catastrophic assault that would be very dangerous not only to Syria but to the region,” Clinton said at a news conference.
Were the recent attacks and today’s bombing the ”catastrophic assault” she warned of? How did she know of them?
The news of who did these assassinations and how is currently foggy. The most interesting question is: Who gave the intelligence that enabled these assassinations?
The deputy defense minister Assef Shawkat is Bashar Assad’s brother-in-law. Earlier this year the insurgency claimed to have killed the defense minister Dawoud Rajiha by food poisoning. He was an orthodox Christian. We can therefore be sure that his death will be a rather harsh part of talk the president of the Russian Federation Putin will have today with a major supporter of the insurgency, the Turkish prime minister Erdogan.
These assassination are surely as heavy hit for the Syrian government. But the result of that hit may not be what the insurgency wishes for: that the people in the government give up. My assessment is that the government’s gloves will come off now and its response will be felt beyond the Syrian borders.

Om händelserna idag i Damaskus enligt en facebooksida – de väststödda terrorgrupperna sprider död och skräck i utkanterna av Damaskus och gömmer sig i bostadsområden vilket gör det svårt för regeringstrupperna att nå dem. Men man ska ha oskadliggjort ett stort antal våldsverkare i alla fall.

Here is a short report about what happened today in Syria, especially near Damascus:
– The rebels announced ”The Battle of Damascus” and they used residential areas to start from.
– The clashes are mainly in Midan, Qaboon and Harasta.
– The Syrian national army killed and captured many of the terrorists some are Libyans and Somalis.
– A car with three armed men opened fire from their car in the downtown and security forces arrested them.
– Rebels are using heavy weapons and the army is defending the capital.
– An aggressive media campaign spreads fear, panic and a lot of rumors in the city
—————————————————————————–
The situation is seriously difficult, the weapons used by rebels are really heavy and hiding in residential buildings makes the mission more difficult.. But we believe in our national army, and we ask you to share this to occupy the net by the truth and pray for God to save and bless our great soldiers..

Russia Today – Scattered gun fights sound ‘Battle For Damascus’

RT’s correspondent Maria Finoshina reports the intensity of fighting inside Damascus is nowhere near the level she experienced during last weeks assault on Douma, some 14 km from the capital, where she remembers her hotel windows shaking from the fierce exchanges.
Though occasional shooting in ?Damascus? continues and armed soldiers are patrolling the streets, “it doesn’t seem like final or decisive battle for capital, really,” Finoshina reports.
A deputy ?Damascus? police chief was also reportedly killed in the clashes.
Finoshina’s source in the Syrian army has revealed that the army’s tactic is to? surround rebel hotbeds while leaving them a ‘corridor’ to flee. The plan is to direct them into less populated areas where they can be dealt with without restraint.

Tony Cartalucci – Ending Syria’s Violence: Begins with Ending Arms, Cash, and Support for Terrorist Front

Since 2007, interests within the US, Saudi, and Israeli governments, along with other Gulf State despots and proxies in both Turkey and northern Lebanon, have been assembling from across the Arab World an army of sectarian extremists, with close ties – even direct affiliations with Al Qaeda. Exposing this was US journalist, Seymour Hersh, who published his findings in a 2007 New Yorker article titled, ”The Redirection.” Readers should note that Al Qaeda itself was an ”Arab foreign legion” of sorts, created in the 1980’s also by the US to fight its proxy wars.
These militants drawn from across Saudi Arabia, Jordan, UAE, Qatar, Lebanon, Turkey, Libya, and Iraq, were armed, funded, and staged along Syria’s borders between 2007-2011. The Syrian Muslim Brotherhood, who had fought a failed but brutally violent campaign to establish a faux-theocracy in the late 70’s and early 80’s was also contacted during this time by the West, receiving funding and directives to begin preparing for the violent overthrow of the Syrian government.
While this militant front was being assembled and prepared by US-Saudi-Israeli clandestine services, the US State Department was assembling a cover story with which to justify the planned bloodbath. That cover story would be later called the ”Arab Spring.” In 2008, the US State Department hosted activists from Egypt in New York City, who would be funded, equipped, and trained both there, and later in Serbia by US-funded CANVAS before returning to Egypt in 2010 to prepare the grounds there for the ”Arab Spring.”
Two years before the ”Arab Spring” would be ”sprung,” the US State Department began training and funding activist leaders from across the region, including Syria and Lebanon. They received up to $50 million, communication equipment, and were invited to training sessions organized by the US State Department itself. The goal was, admittedly, to send them back to their respective countries to train others, thus creating a ”ripple effect.” This was later revealed by Assistant US Secretary of State for Human Rights, Michael Posner in an April 2011 AFP report.
This indicates that both the ”peaceful” and militant components of the Syrian so-called ”uprising” were premeditated, organized, and manipulated geopolitical calculations for achieving Western foreign policy objectives, not to fulfill the ”democratic aspirations” of the Syrian people. In fact, the inclusion of violent ideological militants in the equation almost certainly ensures such ”aspirations” will never be achieved.

That the events playing out in Syria now were entirely premeditated from abroad by corporate-financier interests couching their aspirations for global hegemony within ”democracy promotion,” does not condemn all of Syria’s opposition as ”illegitimate.” However, those supporting both the violence created by foreign-funded death squads, and the unyielding interventionist agenda of the West’s so-called ”Syrian National Council,” are indeed both illegitimate and a threat to Syrian peace as well as world peace.

The violence could literally grind to a halt overnight, when foreign mercenaries and Syrian Muslim Brotherhood extremists realize the spigot of arms, cash, and impunity had been turned off and the restoration of order throughout Syria made inevitable. Instead, the US, feigning ignorance to the documented role they played in the malicious origin of this conflict, proposes to increase the violence by further arming and providing ”air support” for their front of militant extremists, just as they did in Libya to catastrophic effects.

Press TV – US again nixes Russia’s solution for Syria

Lavrov said the Western threats of discontinuing the UN unarmed observer mission to Syria if Russia does not agree to allow the West to use force in the Middle Eastern country amounts to blackmail.
“We will not be able to allow passage of a Security Council resolution that is not based on the Geneva agreements,” he said. The top Russian diplomat made the comments ahead of a meeting with UN-Arab League envoy for Syria Kofi Annan, scheduled for later in the day.
