Från FN-mötet igår – Humanitarian aid to Syria must be neutral – Russia’s UN ambassador

Some of the proposals for solving the humanitarian crisis in Syria voiced at a United Nations Security Council meeting Thursday do not fully comply with the principles of neutrality and impartiality, Russian envoy Vitaly Churkin said.
­The central concern in implementing humanitarian activities in Syria is full impartiality and neutrality, in accordance with international law, Churkin said in an address to the Security Council.
“Let us put this directly: not all of the ideas voiced here are in line with these criteria,” he said. “We consider the efforts of individual states to use humanitarian arguments to justify the financial, technical and logistical support to illegal armed groups as unacceptable.”
The Security Council remains very much divided over how to deal with the Syrian crisis. The high-level meeting in New York focused on the humanitarian circumstances in Syria and how their continuing deterioration.

Turkey has asked the Security Council to consider setting up humanitarian buffer zones inside Syria, refugee camps that would be guarded by neighboring countries. The Syrian government, however, is opposed to the suggestion, and UN refugee chief Antonio Guterres warned as well that it is “rarely possible to provide effective protection and security in such areas.”
Russia and China have also opposed the idea of buffer zones, saying that they would only worsen violence in the country. Even UN Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson cautioned that the proposal would ”raise serious questions and require careful and critical consideration.”
Meanwhile, Britain and France say they are not ruling out any options for solving Syrian crisis, including a military-enforced no-fly zone.

Exposing the ”Red Line” in Syria, med James Corbett, Michel Chossudovsky och Eric Draitser

Over the course of the Syrian crisis, a number of events have been used to portray Assad as a genocidal madman and military intervention as a necessary step.
As things come to a head in the terrorist-torn nation, the lies, half-truths and exaggerations behind this ”red line” thesis are gradually being exposed.

Hela intervjun igår med Syriens president utskriven på engelska – President Bashar al-Assad’s Interviw with Addounia TV

The Syrian delegation has walked out on a session of the Non-Aligned movement in Tehran. They were angered at a speech by Egyptian leader Mohammed Morsi, who called President Assad’s regime oppressive.
Syria’s foreign minister said the comments amounted to inciting further violence in the country. RT spoke to journalist and broadcaster Neil Clark, who believes Morsi’s statement was unbalanced at best.

svd.se – Syrisk opposition lovas svensk hjälp, Det oppositionella Syriska nationella rådet (SNC) är i Stockholm för ett flera dagar långt ledningsmöte.

Önskemålen handlar enligt Bildt bland annat om ambulanser och mobila kök: sådant som går att använda i flyktinglägren, men också inne i Syrien.

Samtidigt kör Ekot på med flyktingsituationen – 250 000 syrier på flykt sedan striderna började och ett FN-möte ska hållas idag om det. Det ser ut som att man är ute efter att försöka upprätta någon sorts buffertzoner eller skyddade zoner, som man sen i nästan skede kan säga att man måste skicka in militär för att skydda!

Scott Creighton – Farah’s Barbaric Demise: How Pathetic the Left has Become in the Age of Obama

Reading the various few Western media reports on Tuesday’s cowardly terrorist attack on a funeral procession in the Jaramana suburb of Damascus, I am struck by two things: (1) how widespread and universally accepted the lies about Bashir Assad have become in spite of countless reports and proof to the contrary from a variety of sources including the MSM… and (2) how completely devoid the American people are of even the slightest remnants of instinctual human empathy.

These terrorists (and let’s call them what they are) attacked civilians in an area that clearly didn’t support their foreign backed regime change agenda and then they waited and targeted civilians who attended the funeral procession that followed.

TV-intervju med Syriens president från idag, på youtube, sammanfattning på engelska kan läsas hos sabinachiaburu.wordpress.com

Since the first week of the crisis, there were victims of police and security, how did they fall? Fallen victims of the acoustic wave of the demonstrators?

Finian Cunningham – West scripting scary scenario in Syria

The Western powers allege that because of the deteriorating security situation in Syria, the state’s suspected arsenal of chemical weapons may “fall into the wrong hands”. In that event, Obama, Cameron and Hollande say they will have no choice but to move militarily into Syria’s conflict to safeguard those weapons.
But hold on a minute.
The deteriorating security situation in Syria that the Western powers are apparently concerned about is the result of a Western-backed armed insurrection that they have been recklessly fuelling over the past year. Since the US-led powers unveiled a roadmap for regime change across the Middle East in 2001, these powers have been waiting for the opportunity to overthrow the government in Damascus. They got their chance during the Arab Spring of 2011 when the US, Britain and France were able to infiltrate that country under the guise of supporting a pro-democracy movement.

The Syrian crisis is a tragedy that is a montage of so many other recent Western-scripted tragedies: Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. The same lies and fabrications, the same horror and suffering, and the same Western criminals posing as heroes.

Robert Fisk har varit i Daraya, där 2-300 människor dödades för några dagar sen, och pratat med boende där – Inside Daraya, Syria: How a failed prisoner swap turned into a massacre

One woman, who gave her name as Leena, said she was travelling through the town in a car and saw at least 10 male bodies lying on the road near her home. ”We carried on driving past, we did not dare to stop, we just saw these bodies in the street,” she said, adding that Syrian troops had not yet entered Daraya.
Another man said that, although he had not seen the dead in the graveyard, he believed that most were related to the government army and included several off-duty conscripts. ”One of the dead was a postman – they included him because he was a government worker,” the man said. If these stories are true, then the armed men – wearing hoods, according to another woman who described how they broke into her home and how she kissed them in a fearful attempt to prevent them shooting her own family – were armed insurgents rather than Syrian troops.
The home of Amer Sheikh Rajab, a forklift truck driver, had been taken over, he said, by gunmen as a base for ”Free Army” forces, the phrase the civilians used for the rebels. They had smashed the family crockery and burned carpets and beds – the family showed this destruction to us – but had also torn out the internal computer chip parts of laptops and television sets in the house. To use as working parts for bombs, perhaps?
On a road on the edge of Daraya, Khaled Yahya Zukari, a lorry driver, had been leaving the town on Saturday in a mini-bus with his 34-year-old wife Musreen and their seven-month-old daughter.
”We were on our way to [the neighbouring suburb of] Senaya when suddenly there was a lot of shooting at us,” he said. ”I told my wife to lie on the floor but a bullet came into the bus and passed right through our baby and hit my wife. It was the same bullet. They were both dead. The shooting came from trees, from a green area. Maybe it was the militants hiding behind the soil and trees who thought we were a military bus bringing soldiers.”

Någon eller några hade tydligen hackat sig in på Amnesty Internationals websida för någon dag sedan och lagt in ett inlägg som sa att Amnesty uppmanar FN att vidta åtgärder mot de länder stöder och beväpnar de väpnade grupperna som härjar i Syrien!! Ganska snabbt var sidan bortplockad, men den kan ses på Google cache

There is overwhelming evidence that crimes against humanity are being committed, yet the US, it’s NATO allies, Israel using Qatar and Turkey as a proxy, continue to ship weapons to Syria and delay, veto or obfuscate international action against the rebels.
Amnesty is calling on the UN calling for an arms embargo on all those nations that are funding and arming the insurgency in Syria, namely, the US, Britian, Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. Furthermore amnesty is calling for the freezing of assets of Turkish prime minister Erdogan, Qatar’s king Hamed, Saudi king Abdula Al Saud, president Obama and Syrian National Council members, and the situation to be referred to the ICC.

Iran puts forward proposal to solve Syrian unrest

RT – M. Klostermayr – German hypocrisy towards Syria

Syrian journalists say some Western and Arabic satellite news channels are fabricating events to accuse the Syrian army of attacking and terrorizing civilians. They refer to the recent case of Mohammad Salim Kabbani who used to go on live on Al-Jazira , Al-Arabia and Orient TV channels as the spokesman for the foreign-backed militant group calling itself the Free Syria Army.
He appeared on Arab media outlets as if he was in the city of Homs while he was in Northern Lebanon city of Tripoli.

12 personer dödade (ny uppgift säger 27) och 48 skadade av en bilbomb i utkanten av Damaskus – Twelve Citizens Killed, 48 Injured in Car Bomb Explosion during Escorting Martyrs in Jaramana, Damascus Countryside

Ziad Fadel, syrier som bor i USA och som skriver bloggen Syrian perspective, intervjuas av Morris från England. Han verkar ha kontakt med släkt och bekanta i Syrien och har bra koll på läget. Bl.a. skriver han på bloggen att de engelska specialtrupper som påstås ha tagit sig in i Syrien (se inlägget 26 aug nedan) inte är där för att ha koll på kemiska vapen, utan för att installera utrustning som ska störa syriska militärens försvar mot flyganfall!

Varför allt prat om kemiska vapen om inte nationerna som ligger bakom aggressionerna mot Syrien har lömska planer?

I asked about chemical weapons, of course. If Syria had such weapons, they would never be used against its own people, he said. ”We are fighting armed groups inside Aleppo, in the Damascus suburbs, before that in Homs and Idlib and this means fighting within Syrian cities – and our responsibility is to protect our people.”
And the infamous Shabiha militia blamed for atrocities in the countryside? Walid Muallem doesn’t believe in them. There might be local unarmed people defending their property from armed groups, he says. But pro-regime, paid militiamen? Never.

Egypt opposes foreign military intervention in Syria: Morsi

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has strongly opposed any form of foreign military intervention in Syria.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Morsi claimed that the Syrian people want President Bashar al-Assad to relinquish power.
On Sunday, a spokesman for Morsi said the Egyptian president called for the formation of a regional contact group, including Iran, Saudi Arabia and Qatar to help resolve the unrest in Syria.

NAM offers intervention-free solution to ongoing crisis in Syria: Akhoundzadeh

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Mohammad-Mehdi Akhoundzadeh says the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) could be the harbinger of a peaceful and intervention-free solution for the Syrian unrest.

But at the meantime Syria is a member of the NAM and yesterday there was in depth discussion within the political committee of the NAM and they came up with three paragraphs on the situation in Syria which I think this could really open up a new venture of hopes for all those who want a peaceful settlement of the situation in Syria, free from foreign intervention, free from intimidation and I believe this is a consensus opinion of the NAM members of states which today we have adopted it.
What will happen in the ministerial meeting when Mr. Morsi comes to Tehran the day after tomorrow, whether there will be other initiatives by the NAM that we have to cross our fingers and see how things will move.
But so far there is a united consensus understanding among all 120 countries that [special envoy of UN general Secretary] Mr. Akhzar Ebrahimi should be in a position to implement the plan of action, to implement the policy that he has announced and I think that is the only way dialogue, talks and reconciliation, hoping that everybody comes to sense and keep aside the culture of killing, destructions and all those bloodsheds.

En syrisk helikopter har skjutits ner, med en amerikansk missil, enligt uppgift. Kanske med hjälp av de brittiska specialtrupper som nämndes i förra inlägget? Igår dödades många människor i Daraya, en förort till Damaskus. Medier trogna de makter som ligger bakom angreppet mot Syrien försöker som vanligt få det att låta som att regeringstrupperna utfört massakern, vilket för mig låter mindre sannolikt – Russia Today – och kör nu med propagandan som de väpnade grupperna kommer med, att dagens nedskjutning skulle vara en hämnd för dödandet i Daraya. Lite intressant i Cecilia Uddéns inslag idag är att Egypten nämns som möjlig fredsmäklare för Syrien. Är detta ett tecken på att man trots allt är beredda att ge upp? Intressant är också hur rädda man är att nämna det verkliga världssamfundets möte i Iran, NAM (Non Aligned Movement) , där det talas om fredsinitiativ om Syrien.

Än mer häpnadsväckande avslöjanden i mainstreammedierna. Vad är syftet med detta? Att gradvis vänja medborgarna vid, och få dem att se det som att det inte är något att ifrågasätta, att väst är direkt involverade angreppet mot Syrien? Liksom man gradvis har vant dem vid att det handlar om en väpnad utlandsstödd konflikt och inte en brutal ”regims” hänsynslösa attacker mot fredliga demonstranter, som det först skulle framställas som. Och liksom man försöker vänja medborgarna vid att det är något naturligt och normalt att USA/väst ständigt håller på med krig, och mot allt fler länder.

Britain and US plan a Syrian revolution from an innocuous office block in Istanbul

An underground network of Syrian opposition activists is receiving training and supplies of vital equipment from a combined American and British effort to forge an effective alternative to the Damascus regime

The schemes are overseen by the US State Department’s Office of Syrian Opposition Support (OSOS) and Foreign Office officials. America has set aside $25 million for political opponents of President Bashar al-Assad while Britain is granting £5 million to the cause of overthrowing the regime.

Foreign intervention in civil wars has proven to be a perilous undertaking since the end of the Cold War but in Syria where an invasion has proven unfeasible, diplomats have had to resort to creative thinking.

Libyan Terrorist Relates Details of How Terrorists are Trained in Libya with Funding from Arab Gulf Countries and Sent to Syria

Al-Farajani, a Libyan from the city of Benghazi born in 1993, said that he joined a militant group after the events in Libya, and that during his time with this group he became aware that its members were in contact with people in al-Zantan area where Qatari and Emirati planes loaded with weapons, Toyota SUVs and Qatari officers who trained militants in the use of AK-47 rifles and machineguns of various calibers and gave them monthly payments of 2000 Libyan dinars.

He pointed out that the battalion made a passport for him without even telling him that he was to be sent to Syria, then he was sent to Turkey by plane and arrived in Antioch, where a Syrian took them to a house containing people from Tunisia, Morocco, Libya and Syria, all of them wearing masks and well-trained.

Vad är detta!!? Tony Cartalucci – British Paper Claims Western Troops are in Syria, With zero mandate, SAS allegedly ”hunts for WMDs” as West attempts incremental intervention at any cost

The British Daily Star has reported in their article, ”SAS HUNT BIO ARMS,” that, ”nearly 200 elite SAS and SBS troops are in or around Syria hunting for Assad’s weapons of mass destruction.” The Star also claims that the SAS are accompanied by British MI6, US CIA, and both French and American soldiers.
Like Iraq, the West has provided no evidence that such weapons even exist, let alone prove that the weapons have or even would be used against terrorists operating across Syria. And like in Iraq, another false pretext is being developed through leaks, and limited hangouts in an attempt to prime the public for a desperate intervention designed to bolster the West’s collapsing terrorist front.
The West also categorically lacks any semblance of an international mandate to act militarily within Syria – meaning that if SAS soldiers are in Syria, they are in egregious violation of international law.

Det plus att Cecilia Uddén är tillbaka på Ekot efter en tids bortavaro med förnyad propagandakrigföring, gör att det finns anledning att befara att en ny desperat offensiv har inletts.

Ben Schreiner – Western aggression intensifies across the Middle East

As Western threats of military intervention into Syria intensify, the prolonging and further deepening of the Syrian crisis becomes inevitable.

Of course, it is indeed Iran, rather than any fear of chemical weapons, that dictates Western interests in Syria. After all, a further destabilized and weakened Syria-no matter the costs for ordinary Syrians-is seen as nothing but a strategic victory in the larger US-Israeli campaign to isolate Iran internationally. Such a campaign, however, is showing emerging signs of stress.

axisoflogic.com, 22 aug – Obama makes direct threat to invade Syria. US & NATO Planning

The US/Israeli/NATO plans to overthrow the Syrian government through Al Queda and other international terrorists appear to have unraveled. This amounts to an enormous failure as the US wanted more than anything to hide behind it’s psuedo ”rebels,” i.e. proxy terrorist groups, to avoid the appearance of another unilateral war against another sovereign country in the eyes of the world. In desperation, the Obama regime is now resorting to the same blatant lies about ”weapons of mass destruction” they used as a pretext for invading Iraq. Time will tell if Washington and their international mafia are foolhardy enough to attack Syria directly.
This much is as clear as crystal: their intention is not to ”save Syria.” Their intention is to destroy the country as they have destroyed Iraq and Libya to destabilize the Middle East, invade Iran and eventually gain control of the vast natural resources of Iran and Central Asia and thwart the economic growth and sovereignty of Russia and China.

Robert Fisk: The bloody truth about Syria’s uncivil war, Those trying to topple Assad have surprised the army with their firepower and brutal tactics

Bashar al-Assad’s government faces a resourceful, well-armed and ruthless enemy whose Islamist supporters are receiving help from the West – just as the Islamist mujahedin fighters were funded and armed by the West when they fought the Russians in Afghanistan during the 1980s. With up to 50,000 men under arms and perhaps 4,000 battle tanks, the Syrian army, per se, cannot lose. But can they win?

‘Syria strategic to West for energy transit…and Iran’, The current situation in Syria is atypical to this peaceful country’s history, where people managed to avoid internal conflicts for centuries, stresses founder of Syrian Friendship Association and journalist Kris Janssen

RT:You have written and said that the armed uprising in Syria has been supported or started from the outside, but you also acknowledged the fact that the Syrians from inside want change. What is the basis of your analysis on this?
KJ: I do believe that the violence we are seeing now has nothing to do with reform, it has to do with the strained people. Also, I am convinced – and I have a lot of testimonies from people in Syria – that a lot of the rebels, the members of Syrian Free Army, as the matter of fact are foreigners. This is not reform and Syrians are not interested in this. Syrian people are very peaceful people and they managed to live together for centuries without any problem. So the violence we are seeing now is not a Syrian product. I went to Dara’a, which was a hotbed the year before, where the trouble started. Also, Dara’a is near the Jordanian border.
It is not a coincidence that the trouble started at the border town because this underlines once again the influence from abroad. I mean, if the current situation in Syria was really a Syrian problem, trouble would have started in Hama or Homs. A lot of outside forces and governments are interested to destroy Syria. Why? Because you have to remember Syria has a very strategic position in the area, in the Middle East, in the region. I think the main target is Iran because Iran is such a powerhouse in the region. It is so strong. They know that to take out Iran, first they have to take out Syria. And I am quite convinced that if they would succeed to destroy Syria the next target would be Hezbollah in Lebanon and once these two allies are taken out, they will concentrate one hundred per cent on Iran.

The current situation of the Syrian Revolution

Today marks the end of the 17th months after the start of the events in Syria, or what is now largely called “The Syrian Crisis”, as opposed to the original romantic name, “The Syrian Revolution”.
Last week also marked one year after the US president Obama called upon Assad to step down (on Aug 18, 2011). These two occasions call for a quick review of the current situation of this crisis or revolution.

The Guardian reported that SFA works “despite” not being liked by civilians in Aleppo. This only confirms what we said before, that using the term “liberating Aleppo” by the opposition only meant liberating it from its own people

Why Syria will not fall

There is no civil war in Syria and the only fighting that is taking place is between Syrian Government Forces and the highly financed and armed militia that is placed there compliments of the west, CIA,MI5/6 and Mossad etc.
The west even have elite Special Forces in situ along with the Special Forces from the western friendly Arab States and still they are getting a flogging.
It is clear that this time the west was not able to force a regime change via their New World Order controlled United Nations and their pathetic puppet Bank Ki-moon. They were not able to impliment their humanitarian (Libya Style) “No Fly Zone” which was absolute bullshit and now they are in full retreat with each countries best of the best getting their arses kicked.

An estimated 12,000 people have spent two weeks blockaded in the Christian town of Rableh, Syria, near Homs in the south. Experiencing a shortage of food and medical supplies, residents could not leave as rebel snipers were shooting at them.
­The town, close to the border with Lebanon, was liberated by Syrian government forces on Friday, according to Beirut-based Al-Mayadeen satellite channel. These reports are yet to be verified. Sixty militants were reportedly eliminated.

US, Turkey hold ‘operational planning’ talks on Syria

US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said that the talks had examined transition to a ‘post-Assad’ Syria along with ways to support anti-Damascus insurgents.
”This is designed to go deeply on the full range of contingencies that one might confront,” Nuland told reporters in Washington.
”And we are looking at every feasible option in terms of what we might do together to evaluate whether it’ll advance our shared goal of hastening the transition or not,” she said, declining to provide further details.

France preparing for no-fly zone in Syria?

Paris said it is considering helping to enact a partial no-fly zone over Syria, proposed earlier by the US, the move adds yet more pressure on Damascus as the fiery rhetoric increases.
French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian signaled that the possibility of establishing a no-fly zone in the area, between the Turkish border and the flashpoint city of Aleppo, should be considered.

Meanwhile, Russia continues to oppose any military action against Syria and calls for a peaceful solution and further dialogue
On Thursday, Moscow said it was working closely with Damascus to ensure that its arsenal of chemical weapons remains under firm control and has won promises that the weapons of mass destruction will not be used or relocated, AP reports, citing Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov.

US, allies using Turkey to start war in Syria: Analyst, Press TV has conducted an interview with Lawrence Freeman, with the Executive Intelligence Review from Baltimore

Press TV: You said we can have a war, can you explain that a little bit clear? Who is going to have a war on whom?
Freeman: OK, the Russians, Medvedev, Putin and General Markov of the Russian military staff have said that they will not allow another Libya to occur, another regime change and assassination of a president and that is exactly what Obama is now proposing.
If you look at the language being used on movement of chemical weapons, threats to move chemical weapons, this is exactly the language that was used by Tony Blair in the fall of 2002 to manufacture the myth that Saddam Hussein was going to launch nuclear weapons on Europe and then of course the United States, George Bush and [Dick] Cheney picked up on it.
The Russians are saying very clearly if you militarily attack or try to overthrow this regime, you are going to have to deal with us and that could bring in the question of a war, a war by this fall and it could be a nuclear war and people should be very very careful about how serious this situation is so we do not go to war and the best thing to do would be to remove president Obama as soon as possible.

Tony Cartalucci – Globalist Rag Gives ”Two Cheers” for Terrorism, Foreign Policy plums new depths of own legendary depravity

Foreign Policy published a recent article literally titled, ”Two Cheers for Syrian Islamists.” In it, general editor of the Neo-Con Middle East Forum Gary Gambill concedes that the Syrian government ”would not be in the trouble it’s in today were it not for the Islamists,” revealing what the West and its media houses have attempted but failed at obfuscating – that the violence in Syria is the work of sectarian extremists, not ”pro-democracy activists.” The latter’s existence was amplified by the Western media specifically to provide cover and legitimacy for the violence and subversion of the former.

Gambill continues his ”two cheers” for terrorism in perhaps the most perverse statement found to-date in the Western press on the subject:
”Islamists — many of them hardened by years of fighting U.S. forces in Iraq — are simply more effective fighters than their secular counterparts. Assad has had extraordinary difficulty countering tactics perfected by his former jihadist allies, particularly suicide bombings and roadside bombs.”

Finian Cunningham – Iran NAM summit sends message of peace

When the summit of the Non-Aligned Movement convenes in the Iranian capital this weekend, it promises to be the greatest show on earth – a show of international solidarity and peaceful coexistence – in the face of imperialist aggression and threat of all-out world war.

While the United States and Western allies arrogantly invoke the mantle of “the international community, “the Non-Aligned Movement can rightfully lay claim to this title, with appropriate legitimacy. When the US and former colonial powers Britain and France talk about “the international community,” what this actually refers to is their own cabal of elite power and unilateral geopolitical self-interest.

Syria, a member of NAM, is being assailed by a US-led axis of powers that include Britain, France, Germany, Turkey and Israel in a covert imperialist war of aggression. None of these powers are, of course, members of the NAM. They instead constitute the global gang of rogue states led by Washington.

Fler tecken som gör att beredskapsläget måste höjas. Ytterligare tal om kemiska vapen från USA/Storbritannien och en ny Syrien-kampanj hos Amnesty, som man tyvärr måste konstatera är ett verktyg för opinionsbildning åt dessa västländer.

Scott Creighton – Desperate and Dangerous: The State Department’s Destabilization Campaign in Syria is Failing

Like a wounded animal, like a coyote caught in a trap, the Clinton forged destabilization campaign in Syria is flailing about, striking at anything that moves and desperate enough to make any attempt to survive no matter what the cost. And that makes them more desperate and dangerous than ever… which is saying a lot.

President Obama’s illegal threat (and remember, it is illegal and considered an act of terrorism to threaten violence against another country and their people if they do not do what you want) included any use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime OR (remarkably) the movement of those stockpiles by the Syrian government.
Now think about that for a second. Why would he use the pretense of the movement of the chemical weapons as a justification to attack Syria?
I can only see one possible reason for that: the Clinton regime change operation has provided the FSA (read as “al Qaeda”) with intel (as they admit they are providing) that pinpoints the Syrian caches of chemical weapons so they can attack those locations, take the weapons, and then use them in Syria or elsewhere, so the weapons can be traced back to Syria.
So their damned if they do and damned if they don’t. If they look to move them to a new location that the Obama regime doesn’t know about, they attack. If they leave them and somehow the terrorists get a hold of them, they attack.

William Engdahl har sagt i en intervju att han vid ett besök i Turkiet för ett par månader sen fick höra av någon som just varit inne i Syrien att en person ur de väpnade grupperna som tillfångatagits uttryckt förvåning över att de syriska militärerna pratade arabiska och inte hebreiska. Han trodde att han stred mot den israeliska militären! Och nu dyker samma sak upp igen i en artikel av Robert Fisk…

Syrian Army destroys insurgent command center in Aleppo

The Syrian Army has destroyed an insurgent command center in the northern city of Aleppo as clashes continue between rebels and government troops in the country’s largest city.

Syria says it cannot trust the Western governments anymore and will be working with its Eastern partners, Russia, China and India. The Syrian government wants to reach a truce without foreign interference and Russia is one of the main partners who is able to help Syria achieve that

‘West’s chemical weapons talk just pretext for intervention’ – Syrian Deputy PM Jamil

The West is looking for an excuse for direct intervention. If this excuse does not work, it will look for another excuse,” said Syrian Deputy Prime Minister Qadri Jamil speaking to journalists after meeting with Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Moscow.

Stephen Lendman – Syrian false flag planned?

On August 20, Barack Obama perhaps signaled US intervention intentions. He told reporters:
”I have indicated repeatedly that President al-Assad has lost legitimacy, that he needs to step down. So far, he hasn’t gotten the message, and instead has double downed in violence on his own people.”
”I have, at this point, not ordered military engagement in the situation. But the point that you made about chemical and biological weapons is critical.”

These comments signal possible intervention. The New York Times said Obama’s warning advances things ”a step closer to direct American intervention.”
Syrian Foreign Ministry Jihad Makdissi clearly said chemical weapons won’t be used internally. Nor will they be used against other nations except in self-defense.
Of course they won’t. Why would Assad give Washington and other NATO countries reason to intervene?
No matter. Incidents are easy to manufacture. Scoundrel media hyperbole manipulates readers and viewers to expect it. Propaganda hypes fear.

Russia And China Respond to Obama’s ”Red Line”

It is obvious now that Russia and China have joined in a general fight to stop the international lawlessness that the ”west” got used to after the breakdown of the Soviet Union. Let’s hope that they this aim and restore the principles of Westphalia and the UN Charter.

Syrian outcome will affect future conflicts’ settlements – Lavrov

The outcome of the Syrian crisis will have a significant impact on how future conflicts are settled, the Russian foreign minister told reporters, once again calling for a diplomatic solution and dialogue within Syria.
“We believe this issue attracts so much attention not only because of the scale of the bloodshed, which worries all of us, but also because the outcome of the crisis will significantly influence the patterns for conflict settlement – either everything will fall in accordance with laws, that is according to the UN Charter, or ‘bomb democracy’ will prevail,” Lavrov said, as quoted by RIA Novosti.
The Russian foreign minister spoke at a press conference in Helsinki on Monday after meeting his Finnish counterpart.

Ny artikel av Robert Fisk som befinner sig i Syrien – Robert Fisk: ‘No power can bring down the Syrian regime’

Now for the official figures – government army statistics of course, for we are on the ”other side” of the Aleppo front line. Total ”terrorists” dead: 700 ”and many wounded”. Total military deaths: 20. Wounded: 100. Internet and mobile lines were cut by rebels near Homs, so a land circuit to Damascus offers the only phone communication with the capital. In Iraq and Afghanistan, insurgents would pay to keep the mobile system operating as they needed the phones. But here, it seems they have enough ”command and control” systems – courtesy of Washington and London if we are to believe our masters – to ignore Syria’s domestic lines.

Lång intervju med Rysslands utrikesminister Sergej Lavrov från 18 augusti – Lavrov worries about US intentions for Syria

Sky News Arabia: Do you have any information on the United States’ movements outside of the framework of the UN Security Council?
Lavrov: The United States has already announced that it will move outside the framework of the UN Security Council and it is a the position that is incomprehensible to us because they announced it a few days after the Geneva meeting which led to the formation of a working committee that issued a statement detailing Annan’s six point plan and which was approved unanimously. But when we started the discussion about it in the Security Council, we were ready for approval, literally without adding amendments, but it became clear that our partners were not ready for it. They tried to interpret the statement as if it was a mandate to bring down the regime and excluded it from the negotiations, which is not what was included in the statement at all. It stated in clear, simple English the need to stop the violence by all sides and for the government and the opposition to propose names of negotiators to come together to reach consensus on a transitional body comprising representatives of government and opposition through consensus by the Syrians themselves.
I think that what we hear from Washington and some other capitals about the death of the Geneva statement is irresponsible for it is the most consensus that has been reached on Syria with the participation of the West, the United States, the Europeans, Russia, China, leading Arabi countries and Turkey. To say now the statement is dead means that there are those who are looking for any pretext to declare there is no prospect for peaceful settlement and to resort to military action. This is what worries us and it is the road to a major disaster in the area.

Jürgen Elsässer, editor in chief of German Compact newspaper reveals based on his newspaper’s & other media investigations and his analysis how mainstream media fabricate lies about events in Syria to use it in order to create a false flag to justify a foreign intervention in the country, similar to what happened so far time and time again.

Nu visar sig desperationen hos det anglo-amerikanska imperiet allt tydligare! – USA hotar ingripa i Syrien (är rubriken på förstasidan hos Ekot, när man kommer till sidan med inslaget har man rubriken – USA varnar Syrien för att använda kemiska vapen -)
Då är det väl dags att än en gång varna för en falsk attack med de kemiska vapen som ska ha flyttats från Libyen till Turkiet nära gränsen till Syrien, genomförd av de USA/västs-stödda grupperna medan man anklagar syriens militär för den. Är desperationen så stor att man verkligen tänker försöka detta? Som mannen i den första av videorna nedan säger, syriska militären har absolut inget som helst motiv för att använda kemiska vapen i det här läget när man har framgångar mot de väpnade grupperna. Och man vet mycket väl att väst inget hellre önskar än att man ger dom en ursäkt för att släppa lös sin fruktade krigsmaskin.

Tony Cartalucci – US Desperation Surfaces in SyriaObama’s bizarre threats indicative of losing strategy and increasing desperation

Coordinated attempts by NATO and its proxy forces to invade and overrun the cities of Damascus and Aleppo in July and early August have failed, with proxy forces being expelled after suffering sizable loses. An attempt to decapitate Syria’s leadership in a bombing in central Damascus also fell flat, with high ranking officials quickly replaced, followed quickly by a cohesive military counter offensive.

Compounding the West’s attempts to overthrow the government of Syria, is the increasing support Syria has been receiving due to Iranian efforts to assemble international forums representing half of the world’s population, condemning the support of foreign interference and promoting alternatives to the violent destabilization being carried out by the West. A 30 member conference was held ahead of the annual Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) meeting in Tehran, Iran – and another meeting will be held again on the sidelines of NAM toward the end of August.

To say that the US is overstretched is an understatement. It is overstretched politically, economically, and tactically. It risks a historically unprecedented collapse that would destroy all shareholders invested in its increasingly unhinged and transparently illegitimate ambitions.

Russia warns West on Syria after Obama threats

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned the West on Tuesday against any unilateral action on Syria after President Barack Obama said U.S. forces could act if the Syrian leader deployed chemical weapons against rebels trying to topple him.
Russia and China have opposed military intervention in Syria throughout 17 months of bloodshed and have vetoed three U.N. Security Council resolutions backed by Western and Arab states that would have raised pressure on Damascus to end violence.
Lavrov spoke at a meeting with China’s top diplomat one day after Obama, in some of his strongest language yet, said U.S. forces could move against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad if he resorted to chemical weapons against insurgents.
Russia and China base their diplomatic cooperation on ”the need to strictly adhere to the norms of international law and the principles contained in the U.N. Charter, and not to allow their violation”, Lavrov said at a meeting with Chinese State Councillor Dai Bingguo.

Obama’s comment on Chemical weapons

President Obama said’ Washington could use military action if there’s any sign the Syrian government might try to deploy its chemical or biological weapons.’
Lawrence Freeman from Executive Intelligence Review Magazine told RT that it’s a pretext for war like it was in Iraq

En av de journalister som hållits som fångar av ”Fria syriska armén” och som släpptes nyligen berättar för Thierry Meyssan – Yara Saleh, hostage of the Free Syrian Army

Mycket intressant artikel av Robert Fisk, som gjort syriska armén sällskap i Aleppo. Robert Fisk: ‘They snipe at us then run and hide in sewers’

As I prowled around the weapons – all captured within the past week, according to the Syrian officers – I found sticks of Swedish explosives in plastic covers, dated February 1999 and manufactured by Hammargrens, whose office address was printed as 434-24 Kingsbacka in Sweden; the words ”made in USA” was also marked on each stick.

…It wasn’t difficult to work out just how the fighting in Aleppo is developing. Walking the streets for more than an hour with a Syrian army patrol, individual snipers would shoot from houses and then disappear before government soldiers arrived. The army had shot dead one man with a sniper’s rifle who fired from the minaret of the El-Houda mosque. The Salaheddine district had been ”liberated”, the Syrian officer said, and the Saif el-Dowla district was only two blocks from a similar ”liberation”.
At least a dozen civilians emerged from their homes, retirees in their 70s, shopkeepers and local businessmen with their families and, unaware that a foreign journalist was watching, put their arms round Syrian troops. One told me he had stayed in his home as ”foreign” fighters used his courtyard to fire on government soldiers. ”I speak Turkish and most were speaking Turkish but some of the men had long beards and short trousers like the Saudis wear, and had strange Arab accents.”
So many Aleppo citizens talked to me, out of earshot of soldiers, about armed ”foreigners” in their streets along with Syrians ”from the countryside” that the presence of considerable numbers of non-Syrian gunmen appeared to be true. While much of the city continues its life under occasional mortar fire, tens of thousands of civilians displaced by the fighting between the Free Syrian Army and what the government always calls the ”Syrian Arab Army” are now housed in vacant dormitories on the Aleppo University campus. And President Assad’s enemies are never far away…

Press TV France says Syrian president should leave power

Press TV – UK bases in Cyprus supply terrorists in Syria with intelligence

Western powers not after democracy in Syria, Press TV has conducted an interview with Abayomi Azikiwi, editor of Pan-African News Wire

They have stated publicly on numerous occasions that they will not be satisfied with anything less than a total regime change in Syria.
President Obama’s announcement today during a press conference that he is drawing a red line in regard to Syria making reference to purported existence of biological and chemical weapons in Syria is another fabrication to provide a justification for the continued transfer of US tax payer dollars to these armed opposition groups in Syria.
These armed opposition groups are not interested in negotiating with the Syrian government neither are the backers of these armed opposition groups which are the White House as well as Downing Street in London.

Läs många värdefulla inlägg på bloggen – syrianperspective.blogspot.se – som det tipsades om i en kommentar till förra inlägget. Bl.a. påstås det att dålig vägledning och underrättelseinformation från de utländska underrättelsetjänsterna, som den tyska, ska ha bidragit till att de väpnade grupperna möter allt större motgångar i Aleppo.

US, Britain fight proxy war to overthrow Assad Government, Press TV has conducted an interview with Professor Lawrence Davidson

Press TV: The UNSMIS [the United Nations Supervision Mission in Syria] mission in Syria has come to an end and already we are seeing incursions by Turkey into the country, some point out that the lack of a UN presence is going to give the West and its allies an open invitation for military intervention. Do you see it that way?
Davidson: Well, I think that military intervention started long before this and I do not think that the UN position in Syria ever really halted it or slowed it down.
So at least the Western powers, the United States and Great Britain among others; are determined to essentially bring down the Assad regime. It is exactly what the Russians and the Chinese were trying to prevent at the internationalization of this struggle. And so not being able to do it through the UN, they do it surreptitiously by aiding the rebel forces and this has been going on for a very, very long time.

RT’s Oksana Boyko visited one southern village to see how people there are trying to build better lives for themselves, despite the bloodshed.

Finian Cunningham – Syria at the Mercy of the West’s ”Ministers of Terrorism”, Foreign Policy by Terrorists and Thugs in High Office

The latest display of criminality in high office is the call by French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius for the “smashing” of Syria and the killing of its president, Bashar al-Assad. The words may have been spoken with an eloquent French accent, but their practical meaning has all the savagery of cold-blooded bludgeoning.
What we are seeing is a descent into barbarism and an open embrace of international lawlessness — by the same governments that appoint themselves to lecture the rest of the world on the principles of democracy and human rights.
Reports and videos, showing that the Western-backed mercenaries of the so-called Free Syrian Army are bolstered by al-Qaeda brigades and other terrorists, have been greeted with barely veiled glee in Washington and European capitals.
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice have pointedly refused to condemn the surge in bombing atrocities across Syria that have accompanied the influx of terrorists into the country over recent months. Indeed, Washington officials have effectively condoned such barbarities by their studied silence. Rice has even made statements, suggesting that more such atrocities will follow until the Syrian president does what her government demands and surrenders office. In mafia terminology, it’s called “making an offer he can’t refuse.”
The “terror” that Washington and other Western governments have promoted as the defining existential threat to democratic civilization over the past 10 years, has suddenly and seamlessly morphed into “war with terror” when it comes to Syria. And Western media that are intoxicated with hubris over supposed “free, independent thinking” do not even raise a timid question about this glaring contradiction. Indeed, these organs compound their intellectual bankruptcy with moral bankruptcy by concealing their government’s outrageous duplicity.
However, for those with eyes, when it comes to Syria, the mask of Western pretence at defending international law and human rights has now been ripped off. The face revealed is a grotesque, salivating monster, whose motives are evidently selfish elite power and domination in the strategic Middle East region. And this objective is to be achieved by any means necessary — foremost by the collusion with bloodthirsty killers.

A Syrian delegation, headed by the Deputy Prime Minister, together with the national reconciliation minister, has arrived in Moscow. This is the second visit by the Syrian government this month.

UK provides intelligence to insurgents in Syria: Sunday Times

A report by The Sunday Times reveals British intelligence on Syrian troop movements has been helping insurgents launch attacks on Syrian forces.
The report quoted an unnamed Syrian official as saying British spies, based in Cyprus, gather the intelligence. They then pass it on to Turkish and American sources and the Turkish sources ultimately pass on the intelligence to Syrian insurgents.
The disclosure provided further evidence that British intelligence is playing a covert role in the anti-Syria campaign.
The official said Britain has two military bases in Cyprus, one in Dhekelia and the other in Akrotiri.

German spy ship aiding Syrian rebels: report

A German newspaper has reported that a spy ship from the German intelligence agency is helping Syrian rebels in their fight to oust the Damascus regime. Meanwhile, the UN observer mission to Syria is coming to an end.
According to a report on Sunday in the paper Bild am Sonntag, the ship is equipped to detect troop movements as far as 600 kilometers (372.8 miles) inland.
The paper says the information thus obtained is being passed by the German foreign intelligence agency BND to United States and British intelligence services. These in their turn are handing it on to Syrian rebels, the report says.
