Beskrivningen av väst som ett sårat odjur som är farligare än nånsin, med tanke på uttalanden de senaste dagarna angående Syrien, är passande.
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.”
U.S. Has Contingency Plans to Invade Syria, WMD ‘Excuse for US to Intervene in Syria’
Kanske kan världssamfundet, den civiliserade delen av världen, göra något förnuftigt och konstruktivt – Iran will unveil proposal on Syria at NAM summit in Tehran: Salehi
Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi says Tehran will present a “rational and acceptable” proposal to resolve the ongoing crisis in Syria during the next week’s summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in Tehran.
We believe that the proposal is acceptable, rational and principled and will include all parties. It will be very difficult to oppose it, he added.
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.
