Webster Tarpley – Turkey involved in no-win scenario over Syria – finns utskrivet på Press TV

I would say out of the first week at the United Nations, the dangerous things have emerged are basically two. One is the call by Prince Thani of Qatar, seconded to some extent by Tunisia, to have an Arab League invasion of Syria. This would be an act of absolute folly.
The other one is the proposal of France to have some kind of humanitarian corridor or save-zone which would mean, again, invading Syria and trying to take over sovereign territory of Syria.
Both of these are very, very dangerous. The only comfort we have is they don’t seem to be going anywhere at the present time. But with the mental instability of the Western elites, that could change at any moment.

Analysis: Turkish role in Syria War

En militärallians bestående av mot Syrien icke-fientliga nationer som kan skicka fredsbevarande trupper kan kanske vara en väg att gå!? voltairenet.org – CSTO allowed to deploy “blue chapkas” in Syria under UN mandate

The Secretary General of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), Nikolay Bordyuzha, and the UN Deputy Secretary General in charge of Peacekeeping Operations, Hervé Ladsous, signed a Memorandum of Understanding on 28 September 2012 in New York.
The document sets out the conditions for the deployment of CSTO troops within the framework of UN peacekeeping operations.
The CSTO has carried out studies on the possible deployment of peacekeeping troops in Nagorno-Karabakh, South Ossetia, Pridnestrovie and in Syria.
So far, NATO has been the only military pact capable of deploying peacekeepers under a UN umbrella. From now on, it will be possible to also count on the ”blue chapkas” (Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Russia).

friendsofsyria.wordpress.com – German intelligence: 95% of the rebels in Syria are foreigners

The BND admitted that only 5% of armed terrorists in Syria are really Syrians, 95% of them are from abroad.
According to the newspaper “Die Welt”, the BND has published in an official and detailed account of the nationalities of the rebels in Syria and their locations in the country.
Most of the rebels come from African countries. It is likely to be members of al Qaeda.
According to the report, the number of rebels in Syria estimated at 14,800.

Intervju med Syriens utrikesminister Walid Moallem – Syria’s Foreign Minister ‘Ready’ To Work With New UN Envoy

”If ending the violence was in the hands of the Syrian government, then I assure you we would have ended it yesterday,” Moallem said. ”Unfortunately, it is not a Syrian government decision. It is in fact Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, who are arming, hosting, and financing these armed groups. So the decision is there.”

Det här med regimbytesplaner för Syrien är inget nytt! Och detta måste man ha i åtanke när man talar om totalitär regim osv. Liksom fallet var med Libyen och Khadaffi, han utsattes ju för åtskilliga mordförsök genom åren. Och de som kallade Khadaffi och kallar Bashar Al-Assad för paranoida kanske borde reflektera lite över vad de säger.
Michel Chossudovsky – Anglo-American 1957 Secret Plan to Assassinate the Syrian President. Déjà Vu?

The plan called for funding of a “Free Syria Committee”, and the arming of “political factions with paramilitary or other actionist capabilities” within Syria. The CIA and MI6 would instigate internal uprisings, for instance by the Druze in the south, help to free political prisoners held in the Mezze prison, and stir up the Muslim Brotherhood in Damascus.
The planners envisaged replacing the Ba’ath/Communist regime with one that was firmly anti-Soviet, but they conceded that this would not be popular and “would probably need to rely first upon repressive measures and arbitrary exercise of power”.

The ongoing US-NATO aggression directed against Syria has been planned for several years.
An invasion of Syria was contemplated in the immediate wake of the 2003 Iraq invasion by US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
“Regime change” in Damascus was again put forth by the Bush adminstration in the immediate wake of the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. The assassination was casually blamed, without evidence, on Damascus.
President George W. Bush “denounced Syria and its ally, Iran, as ‘outlaw regimes… Syria and Iran deserve no patience from the victims of terror,’” The British media confirmed in October 2005 that Washington was “looking for a pro-western replacement for Mr Assad.”

Pentagon claims Syria moved chemical weapons

The Syrian government may have moved some of its chemical weapons to safeguard them against rebel forces, US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said at a Friday press conference.
While some weapons were moved to locations unknown to US intelligence, Panetta said the main storage sites remain secure and under government control.

Outside Meddling In Syria Threat To Whole World Order: Russian Official

Attempts to solve the Syria crisis outside the U.N. would have destructive consequences for both Syria and the existing world order, a senior Russian diplomat said Friday.
“The attempts to look for ways out of the crisis in Syria outside the U.N. Security Council would have very destructive and dangerous consequences for Syria itself, for the Middle East region and, eventually, for the current world order as a whole,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said at a conference of professional diplomats.

Russia’s Lavrov Reiterates All-Embracing Ceasefire for Syria

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov reiterated on Friday that conflicting sides in Syria must first of all stop violence and maintain ceasefire to begin resolving the ongoing conflict in the country.
“Practical steps to overcome the crisis must begin with the all-embracing ceasefire, release of all captives and hostages, deliveries of extra humanitarian aid,” Lavrov said speaking at the 67th session of the UN General Assembly in New York.
These steps, he said, will form conditions for the inter-Syrian dialogue. The conflicting sides must sit at the negotiating table “to work out a compromise concerning the essence and the pace of reformations that will suit all Syrians and provide for safety and rights of all ethnic and religious groups,” he added.

De syrienfientliga makterna vill via sin talesperson på SR Ekot idag ge bilden av att FSA (”Fria” Syriska Armén) går till en storoffensiv i Aleppo och på förstasidan har man rubriken – ”Den slutgiltiga striden är inledd” – Bloggen Syrian Perspective menar att man har förstahandsrapporter från Aleppo om vad som händer, inte som de kontrollerade medierna som vanligtvis låter mr Rami Abdul Rahman från London ostört bre ut sig. Enligt den bloggen tvingades Erdogan i Turkiet, av medborgare, opposition och militären, gå med på att sparka ut FSA ur landet. De utländska lego-krigarna beordrades då att bege sig till Aleppo för ”den slutgiltiga striden”. Den syriska armén ska ha delat ut flygblad och uppmanat ”rebellerna” att lägga ner vapnen annars kommer de att bli dödade.
Rubriker från Press TV idag – Syrian army kills insurgent leaders in Aleppo

The Syrian army has killed a number of insurgent leaders in the flashpoint city of Aleppo as the mop-up operation to clear the northern city of armed groups continues.
The insurgent leaders were killed after Syrian troops attacked a terrorist command center in the Bab neighborhood on Friday.
Heavy clashes, however, continue between government forces and foreign-backed insurgents in other parts of Aleppo. Armed groups fighting against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad have vowed to step up their attacks in Aleppo in coming days.

Nya angrepp på den fria informationsspridningen – Broadcast signal of Syrian news channel hijacked

Privately-owned al-Ikhbariya Syria television news network has experienced broadcast signal intrusion and irrelevant images were broadcast for sometime on the channel.
Director of al-Ikhbariya Syria television station, Imad Sarah, said hostile sides determined the frequency used in the studio-to-transmitter link on Thursday, and broke into the network’s transmission, the SANA news agency reported.
They then aired a broadcast packet for about a minute and a half before al-Ekhbariya’s technical team restored the original signal.

Slain reporter got numerous death threats prior to murder: Press TV CEO

The CEO of Press TV says the network’s correspondent in Syria Maya Naser and his colleagues had received ‘numerous death threats’ months before his murder.
Dr. Mohammad Sarafraz said in an interview with IRIB late Thursday that the Press TV and Al-Alam Damascus Bureau had received numerous threatening messages over the past few months, adding journalists working for the two Iranian news networks had been directly and repeatedly threatened with death.
He said that such threats were part of Western efforts to block the free flow of news dissemination on the regional developments including what is going on in Syria.
Reporters are now directly threatened with murder. In this regard, these wars, with the one in Syria included, have a major difference with the past wars, Sarafraz said.

ALEPPO NOW ..
NATO backed Brotherhood Terrorists have set light to thousands of tires, in order to prevent the Syrian Air Force from performing their duties of seeing and crushing them ..
Most of Aleppo is said to be covered in smoke ..
And to further Terrorise the people of Aleppo, the Criminals then proceeded to spread rumours that they are being attacked with Chemical Bombs …

Angående påståenden om att oroligheterna och protesterna i Syrien från början var fredliga och obeväpnade. Ett inlägg på BBC den 30 april 2011 innehåller de här citaten:

The Syrian ambassador at the UN this week said 51 security force personnel had been killed in the previous 10 days. Since then another six have been killed.
The official Syrian news agency has published pictures of their funerals.

There was a man speaking on the BBC World Service the other night who made a fascinating remark.
He said his wife’s cousin, a colonel in the Syrian army, was shot dead with eight other soldiers on 10 April as they drove on the main road into Banias. Their car was raked with gunfire.

Viktiga uppgifter att dokumentera, man borde samla fler sådana. T.ex. har en journalist som jobbade för Al Jazeera som hoppade av i protest mot kanalens ensidighet, rapporterat om hur han såg och filmade män med vapen som passerade gränsen från något grannland in i Syrien i april 2011. Hans inslag sändes inte av Al Jazeera.

Mycket intressanta uppgifter Christof Lehmann kommer med här – Killing of Journalist Maya Naser in Damascus possibly tied to his investigation into Turkey War Crimes

Knowing what Maya Naser has been investigating during the last days of his life gives a clear indication of which images the FSA and the Turkish government want to control.
During the last days, leading up to the assassination of Maya Naser and the wounding of the Al-Alam and PRESS TV station chief in Damascus, Hussein Mortada, Maya was investigating a case which had the potential to lead to the impeachment of the Erdogan led government of Turkey and indictments for serious war crimes and human rights violations.
Earlier this month the Workers´Party – Turkey filed criminal charges for the Turkish governments support of the Free Syrian Army and related terrorist groups. Only days before his assassination, Maya Naser entered into an ad hoc investigative alliance into the alleged war crimes and human rights violation of the Turkish government with leading members of the Workers´Party Turkey, international lawyer Christopher Black, and the author of this article.
Maya Naser could not only confirm many of the Workers´Party´s allegations against the Turkish government, he could provide the evidence.

In subsequent, personal conversations between Maya Naser and the author of the article, he reiterated that there is further evidence that corroborates the suspicion that the government of Turkey is sending prisoners who have received a death sentence and those who serve life time sentences to Syria as an opportunity to be released from prison and as a chance to clear their record.
International lawyer Christopher Black responded to Maya Naser´s information, stating that if his information was correct, then the Turkish government is committing a war crime under the Rome Statute, which forbids forced service of non-combatants in war.
According to Christopher Black it would be possible to file a complaint with the ICC against Turkey and NATO if corroborating evidence could be produced, stating that if Turkey is involved in these crimes, then its partners are equally guilty.

syrianperspective.blogspot.se – ger en detaljerad beskrivning av hur attacken mot militärhögkvarteret igår gick till. Två självmordsbombare i bilar fulla med sprängmedel sprängdes, en vid ingången till området och en utanför byggnaden efter att vakter dödats av den första. Därefter stormade 30 terrorister in i byggnaden, planen var att de skulle ta höga militärer som gisslan och därefter döda dom. Men, detta skedde kl 7 på morgonen, och ett möte mellan höga militärer var planerat till den tiden men hade ställts in, inga militärledare fanns där. Detta som ett led i att vilseleda västs avlyssnare! Videon nedan visar hur trupper kommer till undsättning. Alla terrorister dödas utom 3 som tas tillfånga, en var syrier de övriga två kom från Libyen.

On September 25, 2012, terrorists detonated two suicide bombs inside vans packed with C-4 (Semtex) explosives. The bombs went off at approximately 7:00 a.m. local time in Damascus before the arrival of Syrian General Staff officers. According to Syrian state t.v., four guards were killed and innocent bystanders were injured, some seriously. Down the highway which links the Damascus International Airport to Omayyad Square, was the Martyr’s Sons School which had been commandeered by terrorists and was used as a staging ground for attacks on the Ministry of Defense immediately after the two explosions. Our source in Damascus, Monzer, spoke to us this morning and confirmed the accuracy of the state television report. But, he had more to say about the origins of this operation.
First of all, the timing was inelegant. The bomb went off at 7:00 in the morning. Interestingly, the Syrian Defense Minister, Lt. General Fahd Al-Fureij, was to have met at that time with several high-ranking field commanders. But the meeting was cancelled the night before because General Fureij has put into operation a ”disinformation” program in which appointments are made across ordinary lines in order to confuse NATO eavesdroppers.

In the words of the Emir, ”It is better for the Arab countries themselves to interfere out of their national, humanitarian, political and military duties, and to do what is necessary to stop the bloodshed in Syria.” He stressed Arab countries had a ”military duty” to invade.
What he means by ”Arab countries” is the petromonarchies of the Gulf Counter-Revolution Club (GCC), previously known as Gulf Cooperation Council – with implicit help from Turkey, with which the GCC has a wide-ranging strategic agreement. Every shisha house in the Middle East knows that Doha, Riyadh and Ankara have been weaponizing/financing/providing logistical help to the various strands of the armed Syrian opposition engaged in regime change.

The terrorist Free Syrian Army has reportedly claimed responsibility for the bomb attacks.
Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoebi has declared that the twin blasts caused no casualties.
In another incident on Wednesday, the Syrian army clashed with a group of insurgents who tried to attack a television building in Damascus.

Four security guards were killed and 14 civilians and security personnel were wounded in twin blasts that hit a military complex in Damascus on Wednesday, Syrian state television quoted a military source as saying.
An armed forces statement said military leaders were unhurt and only a number of guards were wounded in the blasts, which shook the whole city at around 7 a.m. (0400 GMT) before regular working hours.

That is, arming and providing air support for the very terrorist battalions now operating in Syria that have ravaged and overrun Libya, leaving it a perpetually wrecked, destabilized terrorist epicenter.
The announcement made by French President Francois Hollande came on the heels of a deadly terrorist bombing in Damascus targeting a school rebels claim baselessly claim was being used by Syrian security forces. Western propagandists are now calling the school a ”security building.”

Underlining the successful handling of foreign plots by the Syrian government, the Iranian deputy foreign minister stated that Syria’s enemies have failed in their plans to overthrow the country’s government and Syria has weathered the security phase of the crisis.

Webster Tarpley på Press TV om detta med påståenden om att ”Fria syriska armén” flyttat sitt högkvarter från Turkiet in i Syrien. Blev de utsparkade? Eller ingår det i ett försök att kunna upprätta en sk ”flygförbudszon”?

syrianperspective.blogspot.se har idag ett nytt inlägg om Turkiet och menar att Erdogan tvingats sparka ut FSA ur landet!

In order to salvage what he can of the goodwill he used to enjoy, Erdoghan has reportedly given General Necdet Ozel the green light to ”expel” the FSA and especially, the newly arrived savages from Libya, Yemen and Morocco. This might not be easy. In any case, the FSA or the newly-named Syrian National Army, announced their move to Syrian lands in order to properly ”command the forces of revolution”. Nobody can believe this.

Syria opposition hold conference in Damascus

al-akhbar.com – A First Step towards Dialogue in Syria

Sunday’s National Conference to Save Syria in Damascus saw regime opponents meet with human rights activists and foreign officials from regime-supporting nations to discuss solutions to the ongoing crisis.
Damascus – After several failed attempts and rumors of postponement, the National Conference to Save Syria was held at the Omayad Hotel in Damascus on Sunday.
The conference featured a mix of pro-regime foreign dignitaries, reform-oriented activists and hard-line opposition members committed to the toppling of the regime.

Syrian Democratic Party SG: 80% of Aleppo Cleared from Terrorists

More details of foreign rebels flooding into Syria are revealed. This time, the famous British daily Guardian reported some of the scenes from the ground field

The daily further mentioned that ”hundreds of international fighters have flocked to Syria to join the war.”
”Some are fresh-faced idealists driven by a romantic notion of revolution….Others are al-Qaida veterans of Iraq, Yemen and Afghanistan,” it added.
To reach the wars in those countries, foreign fighters had to cross borders with forged passports and dodge secret services.
The frontline in Syria is easier to reach via a comfortable flight to southern Turkey and a hike across the border.
According to the Saudi, it was an easy walk from Turkey to the small Syrian town of Atmeh. There, the foreign fighters were received by a Syrian who runs an extremist camp and organized into fighting units.
Each team was assigned an Arabic speaker and given 10 days’ basic training, the point of which was not to learn how to shoot but to learn to communicate and work together.
The fighters were then dispersed among the different extremist organizations, including Ahrar al-Sham [the Free Men of Syria] and Jabhat al-Nusra [the Front for the Aid of the People of the Levant]. Some, like Abu Omar’s Chechens, were allowed to form their own units and simply referred to as the muhajiroun, or ”immigrants”.

Edward S. Herman – Manufacturing ”Failed States” – artikeln finns också på dissidentvoice.org

The United States has mastered the art of undermining its targets by fomenting domestic terrorism, and then laying the responsibility on them for the crimes sponsored by Washington itself. This method affords it the possibility both to justify military intervention and to carry it out without risk. The well-oiled scheme described here by Edward S. Herman is now being applied in Syria.

These programs always involve serious “atrocities management,” whereby the government under attack is accused of major acts of violence against the rebels and their supporters, and is by this process effectively demonized and set up for more massive intervention. This was very important in the Yugoslav breakup wars, and possibly even more so in Libya and Syria.

The malignant consensus on Syria – av Tim Anderson från Australien

It is a paradox of our digital age that, despite an enormous supply of information, a powerful yet misleading consensus can still shape the course of international relations. Such was the case with the supposed threat from Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction”, and such is the case with the foreign-backed “revolution” in Syria.
The “consensus” from March 2011 was that President Bashar al-Assad was a “brutal dictator”; the Syrian people had risen up against his regime as part of the Arab Spring’s democratic awakening; Assad’s minority Alawi group was repressing the majority Sunni group; and a rebel force had been formed from army defectors and outside forces were only helping them defend a civilian population.
In my opinion, virtually every element of this picture was false. While a political opposition had pressed for President Assad to deliver on his promise of political reform and to clean up corruption, the armed attacks of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) derailed this process.
The big powers scrambled to form an alliance with the most fanatical of Islamists, but by the end of 2011 an independent poll showed that most Syrians wanted Assad to stay.
Australian academic Jeremy Salt wrote from Turkey that “the killing of soldiers, police and civilians, often in the most brutal circumstances, has been going on virtually since the beginning”.

Regimtrogen media, SR Ekot, kommer idag med märkliga påståenden:

Enligt överste Ahmed Abdel Wahab, befälhavare i Fria syriska armén (FSA), är stora delar av Syrien nu under oppositionsstyrkornas kontroll, regimens starka flygvapen är det enda som håller Damaskus flytande.– Med eller utan hjälp utifrån kommer regimen att falla inom månader, inte år, säger överste Ahmed Abdel Wahab

Motsatsen till de signaler som ges i syriska medier, som i sana.sy

Prime Minister, Wael al-Halqi, stressed that the crisis in Syria is in its final stage thanks to the Syrian people’s unity and the precious sacrifice being offered by the Syrian army in confrontation of terrorism.

Det kan vara ett sätt att förbereda allmänheten inför en kommande offensiv av något slag från USA/Nato/väst. Man skapar en konstruerad bild, en virtuell verklighet, som ska få folk att se en offensiv, som man då beskriver som ett verk av ”rebellerna”, som något väntat. Just som man gjorde i Libyen inför det våldsamma angreppet från Nato mot Tripoli i augusti förra året.
När det gäller uppgifterna om turkiska truppförstärkningar nära gränsen mot Syrien sammantaget med påståenden igår om att: ”Den syriska oppositionsgruppen Fria syriska armén (FSA) har för första gången flyttat sitt ledarskap från Turkiet in i Syrien” – Ekot – kan det vara som James Petras säger i videon nedan. Att den turkiska militären ska skydda FSA och försöka få till en konfrontation med den syriska militären för att på så sätt kunna motivera införandet av en flygförbudszon. Eller är det i själva verket så här det förhåller sig!? från syrianperspective.blogspot.se

Note the effort to paint the FSA as a successful organization militarily when the facts on the ground clearly show it is being routed in every battle. Quoting Riad Al-As’ad is especially comedic since he was under house arrest in Turkey and has been recently taken to the Syrian border and told to: ”Get outta here!”. No joke.

USA today overstraining its forces Despite the hardline stance of Moscow and Beijing, the West does not retreat. Why not?
First, it is not in the historical tradition of the Anglo-Saxons to release the prey which they have sunk their teeth in like a pit bull terrier. They will exert pressure as far as possible until they have achieved their objective, or until the opponent has broken their jaw. Second, in the last 25 to 30 years, the Anglo-Saxons, defeating the Soviet elite (it is exactly about the Soviet elite – they surrendered), have simply become arrogant. They got used to Russia giving up everything and they hope to be able to exert pressure on the Russian elite that keeps its money in Western banks. Third – and this is the main reason which outweighs all the others: the stakes are too high; the fate of the North Atlantic elites themselves is at stake, and not just the hydrocarbon resources or the Middle East. The West has no alternative…

Excuse me, Andrei Ilyich! Western media report that the people rebelled against the Assad regime. The insurgents were Syrians, deserted from the army.
That is what the Western media are doing, or to be precise: the instruments for mass propaganda, agitation and misinformation. They fulfill the purely military function of an disinformation and psycho-historic war. The “Syrian rebels” have modern precision weapons, anti-tank weapons, thermal imaging devices, the best sniper rifles and many more, mostly from Turkish production. Is n’t that a bit too sumtuous for deserters and fugitives? But the most important thing is the organization of the armed conflicts. Since the end of June the situation in Syria has changed drastically. Assad is confronted with a staff culture of highly professional planners behind the military diversions, which deserters, ranging from captain to major, would never be capable of. The “rebels” have changed their tactics from wearing down and fatiguing; they have moved to the tactics of massive attack, behind which there is apparently a contingent of 25-30000 men. The armed fighters are descendants coming from Libya, Tunisia, Afghanistan and other Muslim countries. By the way, transferring them to Syria has solved an important problem for the West and the Sunni monarchies. After all, this combustible material must somehow and somewhere be occupied. These guys will not work, and a rabid dog may once bite its owner.

Ulla Johansson – Vem berättar sanningen om konflikten i Syrien?

Jag greps av förtvivlan när jag läste Aftonbladets ledare (Anders Lindberg) idag (21/9-12). Rubriken ”Syrien bombar sina egna barn”. Som påminner så skrämmande om medias upplägg inför angreppet på Libyen. Där det påstods att Gaddafis styrkor bombat den egna befolkningen. Något som sedan visades sig vara en propagandalögn. Men så användbar för att rättfärdiga angreppet på landet. Nu samma rubriker kring Syrien.
Förvånande att propagandamakarna inte förmår förnya sina grepp. Bland svenska media har Aftonbladet hela tiden varit värst i hetsen mot Syrien. På begäran av Schibsteds ledning?(?) Och varför skriver journalisterna alltid ”regimen i Syrien”? När de diskuterar regeringen i Syrien. Ett propagandatrick det också. Förnedrande.

Turkey deploys military units along Syria border

Turkey has deployed military units along its border with Syria whose Army is engaged in intense fighting with insurgents as tensions in the region escalate.
On Saturday, the Turkish army deployed artillery and anti-aircraft missiles near a Syrian border post in the province of al-Raqa, which is being disputed between security forces and insurgents in fierce clashes.

Christof Lehmann – More than 100 Foreign Fighters Killed in Syria on Thursday

In a conversation this morning, a journalist from Al-Alam who is reporting from the scenes of the events in Syria, reported that the battles are contained to small regions or districts while the overall situation in Syria remains relatively calm and stable. Western media reports are, according to the al-Alam reporter, exaggerated.

According to the Al-Alam reporter, Turkish military units are deployed at several of the border crossings between Syria and Turkey, providing logistical and other support for both arms traffickers and insurgents. According to the reporter there have been a number of Turkish citizens among the killed insurgents, but the majority of insurgents comes from other countries like Qatar, Libya. Turkish fighters seem mainly to operate as commanders, supervisors and organizers.
..
So far the Syrian government remains stable, the democratic and legal institutions remain functioning, and the Syrian military has, in spite of some defections kept the upper hand. A fall of the Damascus government in 2012 is unlikely. Given the fact that a regional war and a spread of the conflict into Lebanon and Iran has long been planned it is almost impossible to establish a longer term prognosis other than the one that the development of a regional conflict, involving Israel, Lebanon, Syria and Iran is likely to threaten global security.

David Halpin – Syria: Britain’s Foreign Secretary’s Litany of Lies and Distortions, Britain’s Foreign Secretary William Hague has presented another breathtaking litany of distortions and untruths at the United Nations regarding Syria. It is fair to say that every sentence is a lie or a distortion

proletaren.se – Syriskt initiativ för fred och försoning, Västländerna accepterar inte verkligheten. De vill inte se att det syriska folkets majoritet valt att inte stödja det allt våldsammare upproret. Det säger Agnes Mariam, katolsk ledare från Homsprovinsen. Hon arbetar för fredsinitiativet Mussalaha, för att få ett slut på den blodiga konflikten. Men då måste västmakterna och Gulf-staterna sluta skicka vapen till rebellerna.

Med civilbefolkningens bästa för ögonen är hon mycket kritisk mot USA:s och Europas agerande i konflikten. De säger sig värna om mänskliga rättigheter och ett mångkulturellt och öppet samhälle, men stöder islamistiska fundamentalister som står för allt annat än frihet för folket. De säger sig värna om demokrati, men vägrar inse att det syriska folkets majoritet inte står bakom det våldsamma upproret. Och de vägrar låta syrierna själva välja vilka som ska företräda dem, för att istället påtvinga dem Syriska nationella rådet (SNC) vars ledare inte varit på plats i Syrien på 30 år.

– Lämna det syriska folket i fred, och sluta finansiera rebellerna och ge vapen till dem.

USA, Europa och Gulfstaterna har låst fast sig vid att problemet i Syrien heter Bashar al-Assad och att den enda lösningen på konflikten är att han försvinner från makten. Hur ser du på det?
– Jag känner inte honom och jag tänker inte värdera honom politiskt. Men se på Irak, där de tog bort Saddam Hussein. Det har fört med sig kaos och splittring av landet. Och se på Libyen. Det har knappast blivit bättre idag. Vad jag inte förstår är hur det kommer sig att Assad plötsligt förvandlades till Dracula. Varför accepterade väst honom 2010 då han togs emot i Paris av Frankrikes president Nicolas Sarkozy?

De krafter som stöder det väpnade upproret – USA, Europa och Gulfstaterna – har trots ihärdiga försök inte lyckats få igenom en FN-resolution som godkänner någon form av väpnad intervention. Agnes Mariam varnar dock för att västländerna försöker skapa en inhemsk folklig acceptans för någon form av militärt agerande mot Syrien.
Vad de hittills lyckats med är att skjuta sönder varje internationellt försök att få till stånd en lösning på konflikten, som FN-medlaren Kofi Annans fredsplan.

Men det finns många människor i Syrien som i sina byar och städer försöker få ett slut på våldet genom dialog och försoning.
Anges Mariam berättar om initiativet Mussalaha, Försoning, som skapades i Homs av invånare som var trötta på kriget och den sekteristiska splittringen. De första mötena hölls i juni förra året och samlade representanter från alla etnisk-religiösa grupper i regionen.

Agnes Mariam är själv medlem i Mussalaha. Hon framhåller att katolska ledare menar att det är en räddningsplan för Syrien.

– Den syriska befolkningen kommer till varandra och bestämmer sig för att skapa en ny verklighet. Det sker i hela områden i landet, och även i Damaskus förorter. De säger till rebellerna: Lämna ifrån er vapnen eller åk härifrån. Förstör inte statens infrastruktur. Förstör inte vårt kulturarv och låt oss leva i fred. Mussalaha, försoning, är ett verktyg för att nå en överenskommelse. En sådan kan man inte nå genom att döda folk.

Webster Tarpley på Press TV – NATO, Saudis prevent negotiated settlement in Syria: Analys

…The secret of course is that the paymasters of the Syrian National Council don’t want a peaceful solution, that’s not what they’re getting paid for. The goal is to have a pretext to attack; to have a pretext to intervene.
And if you have a peaceful solution that would be good for the people of Syria, but not good for the imperialists who insist on destroying Syria because it would weaken Iran, it would weaken Hezbollah, it would shift the strategic situation in the Middle East. So there it is.

Press TV: Are you saying at this point there is not much of a chance for a dialogue being held between the Syrian government and not only the national opposition, but this external opposition if I may call it that?

Tarpley: There is an internal, national, peaceful reasonable opposition.
The outside opposition I think is hopeless and it’s not just me – Remember, Ghalioun was the head of the Syrian National Council then they ousted him. Their meetings generally generate into brawls. They just had Basma Kodmani who represented the Syrian National Council at the Bilderburger Group here near Washington at the beginning of June – She’s quit her post as the spokes person for the Syrian National Council. So they are constantly falling apart.
The only thing that keeps them together is the money they get from the Saudis and the backing that they get from NATO on the Diplomatic front. So not much chance of a dialogue with them.

Pyotr Iskenderov – Washington Wants the Pentagon and NATO To Have “Carte Blanche” In Syria

Recently, Syria has attempted to reinforce ties with other international unions, less broad but more diverse. In the run-up to the Netherlands meeting, a contact group on Syria met in Cairo. It features Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Turkey which treat Assad’s regime differently and are all key players in the region.
Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi proposed to send the group’s own observers to seek a peaceful resolution of the conflict without foreign intervention.
It was quite timely, as in August the UN and the West decided to withdraw its observers from Syria.
However, the West obviously will do its best to prevent countries which it doesn’t control from monitoring the situation in Syria.
As some UN leaks reveal, delegates from the West were the ones skeptical about the necessity of a UN envoy at all.
Richard Gowan of New York University stated:
I doubt that any U.N. envoy can really prevent the current conflict from getting worse, although the U.N. has an absolute obligation to keep up efforts to get humanitarian aid into the country alongside the Red Cross and Red Crescent.”
This means that Washington wants the envoy to have no influence on military and political issues in Syria, giving the US and NATO a carte blanche.
So, the West claims that all it wants is to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe in Syria and enhance democracy there, but the very nature of the anti-Assad coalition puts in doubt these good intentions.

Konstantin Garibov – West’s “Double Standard” Arms Embargo: Heavy Weapons for Syria Terrorists

At the latest session of the so-called Friends of Syria Group in the Netherlands, representatives of more than 60 European and Arab countries called for boosting military support to opponents of the Bashar Assad regime. The possibility of bringing more groups of anti-Assad mercenaries into the country was also discussed.

“It’s a U.S. foreign policy tradition that doesn’t pertain only to the civil war in Syria. As for Syria, the foreign policy task has been set – to remove Assad. That’s why, everything that helps the anti-Assad militants and terrorists is supported or ignored, while everything that helps government troops is condemned and punished with sanctions.”
In this situation, Russia has renewed its calls for internal political dialogue in Syria without outside interference. Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov reiterated Moscow’s position during a meeting with Syrian ambassador to Russia Riyad Haddad. The ambassador thanked Russia for humanitarian supplies to Syrian civilians.
On Friday morning, a relief plane of the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry landed in Damascus. It brought 38 tons of food. Earlier, a similar batch of humanitarian aid was handed over to the Syrian Red Cross Society. The Russian Foreign Ministry has urged all countries that proclaimed themselves true friends of Syria to follow suit.

Tony Cartalucci – Human Rights Watch: ”Syrian Rebels” Guilty of Torture, Murder

Even the West’s own NGOs can no longer maintain the illusion that the wave of terror created to overthrow Wall Street and London’s enemies are somehow ”freedom fighters.” Cognitive infiltration – the creation of ”conspiracy theories” to spin and control public perception versus an emerging alternative media – is attempting to compartmentalize responsibility for the West’s use of listed terror organizations and the myriad of crimes they’ve carried out from Libya to Syria and beyond.

Intervju med Tony Cartalucci – Western narrative on Syria is crumbling: U.S. journalist

Q: Some political commentators say attack on Syria will be a prelude to an all-out military strike against Iran. Your views.

A: Commentators are saying this precisely because it is written in nearly 10 years of U.S. policy papers. Citing some examples, there is the 2007 Seymour Hersh piece in the New Yorker titled, “The Redirection.” Hersh’s conclusion that the U.S. was attempting to undermine Syria as a means of subsequently undermining and executing regime change in Iran wasn’t one he drew himself, it was an enumerated policy that members of the Bush administration had relayed to him; a policy that already at the time had been set in motion.

In 2009 in the Brookings Institution’s “Which Path to Persia?” report, Syria is again mentioned as a necessary factor that must be neutralized before proceeding on to Iran. The document details the use of violent, listed-terrorist organizations to undermine Iran, namely MKO, means of provoking a war with Iran it neither wants nor will benefit from, and mitigating perceived U.S. complicity if Israel were to strike Iran. While all of these strategies, in the 2009 report, are directed against Iran, we see many of them now playing out against Syria.

With this in mind, we can expect to see the mechanisms at play in undermining, dividing, and destroying Syria next turned on Lebanon and Iran if and when critical mass can be reached to topple Syria’s government. Also, an interesting reoccurring theme in Brookings’ “Which Path to Persia?” report is how the U.S. can lure Iran into an armed conflict. The destruction of Syria seems to be a potential means of doing this, though Iran has been very careful and adept at avoiding this pitfall.

DEFEND SYRIA AGAINST IMPERIALISM

If we’re serious about building an anti-war movement, let’s not get too caught up in wanting to make judgements against the Syrian state for this or that mistake or defect. When Syria is under attack, a better instinct is help people understand the positive aspects of its character, the reasons it’s under attack from the global enemy, rather than going into the ritual denunciation that most anti-war activists seem to be into. Furthermore, we should be doing a lot more to promote Syrian voices, to give voice to those millions of Syrians who defend their country and who perfectly well understand the conspiracy that’s taking place. So far their voice has been totally ignored, not only by the mainstream media, but also by most of the ‘alternative’ and left-wing press.

Russia: No Geopolitical Interests Can Justify Continued Violence in Syria

Russia reiterated call for taking prompt and effective measures to halt violence in Syria as soon as possible and launch a comprehensive national dialogue according to Geneva statement and working for the statement to be adopted by the UN Security Council.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, the Russian Foreign Ministry regretted the West’s policy which supports the opposition and is based on solving the crisis in Syria through means of using force.
The statement added that no geopolitical interests can justify the continued killing of civilians and destroying of the infrastructure and economy of the country.
The Russian Foreign Ministry stressed that repeating the phrase that ”Syria is not Libya” and rejecting the foreign military intervention scenario in words only make them further lose their credibility.

Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, reaffirmed his country’s support to the mission of the UN envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi.
At the end of his meeting on Tuesday with heads of the diplomatic missions of the Arab countries and the Arab League’s representatives in Moscow, Lavrov stressed Russia’s principled stance in support of resolving internal political problems and disputes by peaceful means through national dialogue and popular accord without external interference.
Sources at the Russian Foreign Ministry said talks during the meeting focused on the necessity of unifying the international community efforts towards realizing an immediate halt of violence in Syria and creating conditions to find a political solution to the crisis.

Al-Hamwi: International Investigation Commission Report Turns a Blind Eye to Role of International and Regional Parties in Inflaming Crisis in Syria

Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Dr. Fayssal al-Hamwi said that the report of the International Investigation Commission lacks accuracy and objectivity and it ignores facts, the most important of which is the role of some international and regional parties in stoking the flames of crisis in Syria through media instigation, providing arms and money to mercenary terrorists and al-Qaeda members, training them and sending them to Syria.

Antalet utländska soldater i Syrien ökar, medgav utredarna, och de radikaliserar rebellerna. Men Pinheiro sa sig inte vet någonting om varifrån utlänningarna kommit.

Några tusen nya legokrigare att skicka in i Syrien! U.S.-Saudi agreement: 5,000 Yemeni Al-Qaeda jihadists to be sent to Syria

Five thousand Al-Qaeda jihadists will be sent to Syria, according to an agreement between the United States and Saudi Arabia and the head of the Yemeni branch of the jihadist group, which is classified as a terrorist organization in Washington.
Online information in the region provided by Yemeni website AdenAlghad.net and Iranian news agency Al Alam says that representatives of the governments of the United States and Saudi Arabia have signed an agreement with jihadist Tariq al-Fadhli (pictured in black shirt and with gun belt) who is said to have been a comrade of Osama bin Laden, to deploy 5,000 jihadists to Syria from the city of Ja’ar y Zinjibar in southern Yemen.
This could explain the ”sudden withdrawal of armed men in the Abyan region of Yemen,” as quoted by media which used Russia Today as a source for their information.

Brahimi to make plan on Syria after meeting all concerned parties

Visiting UN-Arab League special representative Lakhdar Brahimi said here on Saturday that he has not come to a plan to end Syria’s crisis yet, adding that the plan would be made after he has met with all concerned parties and countries.
Brahimi’s remarks were made after meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
”There is no plan for the time being, we will build a plan after we meet with all parties and I hope the plan would be workable for the salvation of Syria,” said Brahimi.

Brahimi arrived in Syria Thursday for a three-day visit to meet with officials for the Syrian administration and the opposition alike.
