UPPDATERING

Efter rapporter de senaste dagarna om framgångar för syriska armén mot de väpnade gängen, kommer en flygattack från Israel, förhandlingstrevare från den västtillsatta oppositionsledaren utan att nämna kravet att Al-Assad ska avgå, och meddelande om att USA’s vicepresident ska träffa Rysslands utrikesminister och den västtillsatte oppositionsledaren på lördag.

Press TV – US vice president to meet Russian FM, Syria opposition chief

US Vice President Joe Biden is set to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and head of the so-called Syrian National Council Moaz al-Khatib on Saturday.
The White House says Biden is scheduled to meet with Lavrov and Khatib on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference in order to discuss the situation in Syria.
The US vice president would reportedly raise the issue of getting more humanitarian aid into Syria and would also discuss the political way forward in the Arab country gripped by more than 20 months of unrest.

US-Israeli claims on Syria full of inconsistency: Gordon Duff

This attack… I have no idea what it means, but there seems to be far more publicity to this and far more unreality than anything involving any military necessity. There is no way anyone would attack a chemical weapons facility as the Israelis claim. It would have killed tens of thousands of people, just the attack within Israel depending on the direction the wind was blowing.
None of this makes any sense at all and I’m not sure any of it can be taken seriously.

english.ruvr.ru – Israel gets involved in Syria conflict

Outside interference in the conflict in Syria is strengthening. Israel hit Syria immediately after 6 Patriot missile air defence systems were deployed in Turkey on its border with Syria. Expert with the Institute of Strategic Assessments and Analysis Sergei Demidenko says.
”There is no doubt that all this may finally lead to a grandiose chaos in the Middle East. Syria is the heart of the Arab world. Thus, the worse the situation in Syria is the worse it is for the region at large. In case of a chaos the situation in Syria will become uncontrollable, and neither international forces nor any means would be of help there.

almanar.com.lb – Syria Opposition Chief Offers Talks with Government

The head of Syria’s main foreign-based opposition coalition, Muaz Al-Khatib, said on Wednesday he was ready to hold talks with representatives of President Bashar al-Assad outside Syria if authorities released tens of thousands of detainees.
Syrian officials said this week that political opposition figures could return to Damascus for ”national dialogue” and that any charges against them would be dropped.
The Syrian National Council, which was the most internationally recognized external opposition group prior to the formation of the coalition, slammed the remarks.

moonofalabama.org – Syria: First To Blink …

Look who blinks:
Syria’s opposition chief Moaz al-Khatib said on Wednesday he is ready for dialogue with officials of President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, subject to conditions including that some 160,000 detainees are released.
”I announce I am ready for direct discussions with representatives of the Syrian regime in Cairo, Tunis or Istanbul,” Mr Khatib said via his Facebook page, citing as another condition that passports for exiled citizens be renewed in embassies abroad.
Missing is the condition that many ”western” governments and their puppet Syrian opposition had earlier set for talks. There is no longer the demand that Bashar al-Assad has to leave before any negotiations can take place.
It is likely that many of the exile Syrian opposition will reject these negotiations and further split their coalition.
I expect that the Syrian government will take up this offer but it will take time for the process to start. There obviously will be no release of opposition fighters from prison before negotiations start. When they start al-Khatib and his bosses in Washington will have little to offer. The fighters on the ground are not under the command of the exile opposition. They will care little about what he negotiates.
Still this offer will have effects. On the ground it will diminish the motivation of some of the fighters. It will also have effects on those that finance and support the opposition fighters. Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar will have to treat more carefully now as al-Khatib negotiation offer implies that Washington wants the conflict to end. Whoever stands in the way will have to watch out.

Russia condemns Israeli strike on Syria as attack on sovereign state

Russia Today – Russia denounces Israeli strike on Syria as unprovoked attack on sovereign country

The Russian Foreign Ministry has issued a statement expressing deep concern over Israel’s airstrike on Syria saying that it violates the UN Charter.
The Ministry website says; if this information is confirmed that would mean that we have to deal with unprovoked attacks on the territory of a sovereign state which is inadmissible, whatever objectives are declared as a justification.

Tony Cartalucci – Israeli Attack: Desperate Bid to Save Failed Syrian Campaign

For Syria and its allies, the goal now must be to deter further Israeli aggression and avoid wider conflict at all costs. If NATO’s proxy terrorist forces are as weak as they appear – incapable of tactical or strategic gains, and tapering off into desperate terrorist attacks, it is only a matter of time before NATO’s campaign grinds to a halt. As mentioned before, such a failure on NATO’s part will be the beginning of the end for it, and the Western interests that have been using it as a tool to achieve geopolitical hegemony.

Press TV – Israeli regime deploying forces on Syria border: Syria TV

Syria’s state television says the Israeli regime is deploying military forces on the Syrian border.
The move comes a day after an Israeli airstrike reportedly targeted a defense research center near the Syrian capital city of Damascus, killing two people and injuring five others.

english.ruvr.ru – Russia hopeful about US Secretary Kerry – Lukashevich

Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Alexander Lukashevich held a media briefing Thursday, where he answered questions on the most pressing global issues, Voice of Russia’s Polina Chernitsa reports.
Speaking on the Syrian conflict, Mr. Lukashevich bashed the exit interview of America’s outgoing Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in which she had allegedly distorted the Russian stand on Syria. He said the Russian foreign office deplored the “biased and incorrect” assessment of Russia’s attitude towards continuing bloodshed in Syria.
Lukashevich said, however, Russia was ready to go ahead with its US relations, provided America was ready to move in “a forward-oriented direction.” He said Russia hoped for “positive momentum” that John Kerry’s experience might give to US-Russia ties.
The VoR correspondent says Mr. Lukashevich praised UN peace envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, on the proposals he has reently made at a UN Security Council meeting. “Mr. Brahimi put forth several ideas that wouldn’t violate the Geneva Communiqué,” he pointed out.

”Israeli fighter jets violated our airspace at dawn today and carried out a direct strike on a scientific research center in charge of raising our level of resistance and self-defence,” the Syrian Army said in a statement on Wednesday, AFP reported.
The attack was carried out against the center, which was tasked with boosting Syria’s resistance and self-defense, ”after terrorist groups made several failed attempts in the past months to take control of the site.”

worldmathaba.net – Is there a Shift in the Position of the Enemies of Syria towards President Assad?

The international positions towards the crisis in Syria have been clear for quite some while now. There are basically two positions: one that calls for dialogue between the parties within Syria combined with a rejection of foreign interference. The other position is far more aggressive and calls for regime change in Syria with a rejection of dialogue and a strong support for the armed gangs or the ‘opposition’ against the Syrian government.

In an analysis from January 25, 2013, on Press TV (8) we can read about the possible change in the US position towards Syria. Due to the rising threat of muslim extremism the US might just drop their support for these armed gangs and move more towards the dialogue approach:
”Many of those who were predicting the end of Bashar Al-Assad are now having second thoughts. One major factor behind this is the US position. The rising fundamentalist trend in Syria is a grave concern and comes at a time when the US congress is holding hearings on the killing of the US ambassador in Benghazi at the hands of extremists. That incident would probably have not occurred were it not for Nato military intervention in Libya.” (8)

This is an old film showing the FSA Terrorists throwing the murdered bodies of policemen off a bridge. This happened towards the beginning of the troubles in Syria. A time when the police were unarmed and the terrorists were called ‘peaceful protestors’. As you will see they were far from peaceful killing unarmed police and security forces on a daily basis.

Barrack Obama har gjort ett uttalande om Syrien som är nästan outhärdligt i sin falskhet och förljugenhet – video 3 min – Från Vita husets sida – President Obama Announces Additional Humanitarian Aid for the Syrian People

Americans and people all over the world have been moved by the images of courageous Syrians standing up to a brutal regime, even as they suffer the consequences of the violence waged against them by the Assad government. Right now, humanitarian conditions in Syria are deteriorating in the face of a massive, man-made humanitarian emergency. People have been forced from their homes; schools, clinics and bakeries continue to be targeted; and food prices are on the rise as winter takes hold.

Mer motbjudande lögnaktighet får man leta efter! Förutom att man ligger bakom de gränslöst barbariska väpnade gängen, med hjälp av Obama-regimens taktik om att styra bakifrån, lead from behind, så har man infört sanktioner som medför svåra lidanden för civilbefolkningen, med brist på mat, olja för uppvärmning och mediciner som följd. Vilket bl.a. Franklin Lamb har beskrivit i tidigare rapporter från Damaskus, idag kommer han med en ny. Men möjligen är det så att den här hjälpen som Obama talar om är en del av en ändrad strategi med målet att dra sig ur Syrien-fientligheterna för den här gången.

Franklin Lamb – Sanctions: It’s War by Any Other Name

What a difference a week can make. The heaviest snow in Syria in a quarter- century, some claimed, last week’s storm closed for a time even the main highway from Damascus to Beirut.
But that was then and now its spring in Damascus, or so it feels to those of us used to New England Januarys. It’s nearly downright balmy here. Spring flowers are bursting out all over and the city parks are crowded with mothers pushing baby carriages, kids playing and young lovers cooing softly on the park benches. Park workers are raking the dead leaves and others trimming the palm trees and piling the branches neatly on flatbed trucks.
What “civil war”? What “crisis”? One is tempted to ask himself even though there continues to be intermittent “thuds” and a jet streaking overhead now and then en route apparently to one of the suburbs where clashes erupt intermittently.
It’s been a rough winter and perhaps we are just experiencing here a false spring. Yet one senses a palpable sigh of relief and even some optimism while talking to citizens, NGO staffers and some officials. It could be partly the wonderful weather but perhaps also a realization that a corner may have been turned, peace and security will be restored and the killing ended.

english.ruvr.ru – Flow of mercenaries must stop – Syrian Deputy PM

The composition of the transitional government of Syria must include both the ruling regime and the opposition according to the Deputy Prime Minister of Syria Qadri Jamil.
He said that almost all political forces in the country have come to the same conclusion including those who had been against any form of dialogue.
In order to resolve the crisis in such a manner, according to Jamil, the flow of foreign fighters from abroad must be stopped.
He accused a host of Western countries of organizing their presence in Syria.

Press TV – Syrian authorities find over 80 people killed execution style

Syrian security personnel in the northern city of Aleppo have discovered the bodies of more than 80 people, saying the victims were killed execution style.
The bodies of young men and boys were found in the Quweiq River, which separates Bustan al-Qasr district from Ansari, in Aleppo’s southwest.
The area is under the control of the foreign-backed militants who are seeking to overthrow the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
Some of the bodies had their hands tied behind them and the others appear to had been shot in the head.
A senior security source said many of the victims had previously been reported kidnapped.

Press TV – Syria militants possess chemical arms: Video

New video footage has surfaced online showing the foreign-sponsored militants in Syria in possession of chemical weapons.
The video, which was posted on the internet recently, apparently shows armed militants holding canisters containing chemical substances.
The militants had earlier released footage in which rabbits were killed by inhaling poisonous gas.
In December 2012, Syrian Ambassador to the UN Bashar Ja’afari said in letters to the UN Security Council and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon that the foreign-backed militants could use chemical weapons against Syrians and try to shift the blame to the government.
Damascus is ”genuinely worried” that Syria’s enemies could provide chemical weapons to armed groups ”and then claim they had been used by the Syrian government,” Ja’afari stated.

Press TV – Syrian army has upper hand against militants, Assad says

“The army has a very large lead on the ground and has achieved significant gains,” Assad said in an interview with the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar published on Monday.
He further said the Syrian army could even win the battle against the militants if Turkey stopped supporting them. “If the Turkish border was closed to tackle the smuggling of arms and militants, this matter would be resolved in only two weeks.”

The Syrian president went on to say that the militants’ “playground is limited to some border areas with Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon, and some pockets in the countryside of the capital, which are being dealt with.”
Assad said that the situation in the capital, Damascus, has improved, adding, “The externally-funded armed groups received strong blows recently.”
He also stressed that Damascus will continue to cooperate with the UN-Arab League Special Envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi to solve the crisis in the country.

The Syrian opposition urgently needs arms and at least $300mln to build a workable anti-Assad government.
Head of the National Opposition Coalition George Sabra has been speaking about this at a Paris conference convened by the French Foreign Ministry.

”We cannot allow a rebellion that began as (a) peaceful and democratic protest degenerate into confrontation between rival militias,” Fabius said.
”This conference has to send a clear signal, (that) it has one concrete objective: give the Syrian National Coalition (SNC) the means to act.”
France has led moves to have the SNC recognized internationally. But the ‘credibility’ of the opposition alliance has been damaged by mounting evidence that extremist are playing a central role in the campaign against President Bashar Assad.

friendsofsyria.wordpress.com – The Terrorist Opposition Are Asking for Half Billion to Overthrow Assad

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said ”We have to give the Syrian people a clear signal: we are at your side.” Has this man gone absolutely crazy thinking that giving money to terrorists who are killing innocent Syrian people, is going to show that France is on the side of the people? France is supporting the terrorists by funding them and are the enemy of the Syrian people.

Press TV –Syria’s well-trained army will soon defeat US-led militants : Ala’a Ibrahim video

Obviously the army has the upper hand. We have to put this in context the Syrian government has a strong well-trained army, one of the biggest armies in the Middle East; it’s very well equipped. So it’s obvious that it would have the upper hand. I wouldn’t care much about the media reports about the Syrian army losing ground in some areas. I would say that when the army puts its mind into something, when the army decides to take or retake a certain area they are capable of doing this. We have seen examples in Homs, in Bab Amro, we have seen examples in parts of Aleppo

Press TV – Obama says aware of limitations for military intervention in Syria

In response to domestic criticisms of US administration’s failure to militarily intervene in Syria, Barack Obama says he is fully aware of the limitations the US faces for such an action.
“I am more mindful probably than most of not only our incredible strengths and capabilities, but also our limitations,” Obama said in an interview with the New Republic magazine published on Monday.
“In a situation like Syria, I have to ask, can we make a difference in that situation? Would a military intervention have an impact? How would it affect our ability to support troops who are still in Afghanistan?” the president asked.

In an interview with CBS television program ”60 Minutes” On Sunday, Obama said contrary to the US intervention in Libya to topple Muammar Gaddafi, a similar measure in Syria may “backfire.”

Christof Lehmann – Syria: Subversion Stalls while Government Succeeds with Reconciliation and Reforms

A successful subversion of the Syrian government with militants becomes increasingly unlikely. Over the course of the last week the Syrian military forces have inflicted heavy losses on the NATO and GCC backed insurgents. Also a direct military intervention by Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Israel, or any of the NATO member states becomes increasingly unlikely, as Russia and China continue preventing another Libya-style intervention. Russia, Syria and Iran seem successful at conveying that a military aggression against Syria would have catastrophic regional and potentially global consequences. Meanwhile, the Syrian government has not only been very active, but very successful at molding opposition parties reform movements as well as religious and ethnic groups into a coherent and constructive alliance for peace, reconciliation and reform.

Syrian public ready to liquidate militants: Webster Tarpley

En artikel till man inte bör missa – Gearóid Ó Colmáin – Terrorism and Non-Conventional Warfare: France, Qatar, and the New World Disorder

There are no words in any language to describe the atrocities NATO‘s contras are committing against the people of Syria. But the world is looking on in horror and outrage. Large parts of Latin America know what is going on. Large parts of Asia and Russia too, know who is behind the violence in Syria. The truth will out in time. The balance of power in the world is shifting and sooner or later, the criminals behind these neo-colonial wars and their vast network of collaborators will be brought to justice. There are signs that Jordan may realign itself with Iraq, Iran, and Syria after signing new energy deals with Iraq on January. This could be fatal for the terrorists in Western Syria, as Jordan has hitherto been used as a base for the terror campaign. The Syrian state is strong enough to survive. The spirit of the Syrian people is indomitable. The illusions of the Arab Spring have faded. No one can argue now that the Arab Spring was about democracy and human rights. The Muslim Brotherhood have taken power in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya with Western support. No one can pretend any more that the conflict in Syria is about democracy.

In this sense, Bachar Al-Assad’s Syria is ironically the most pro-Western country in the Middle East and France could have no greater ally against Islamist terrorism than the Syrian Arab Republic, yet Paris backs the Islamists! Both the Syrian president and the Syrian UN Ambassador Dr. Bashar Ja’afari speak French. In spite of this, Dr. Ja’afari has never been invited to speak on French TV or radio. Not once has the Syrian government been allowed to present its side of the story to the French public. Paris’s corrupt elites are only interested in talking to the semi-literate thugs of the Gulf States who keep their own people in ignorance, while promoting the most barbaric form of anti-Islam around the world. After all, the state of bondage which subjects of these countries experience represents a model society for the degenerate transatlantic oligarchs.

Despicable crooks are still running this world and as Malcolm X understood too well, their media servants in all languages work over time to make us love the crooks and hate their victims.

Michel Chossudovsky – US-NATO “Economic Terrorism”: The Collapse of Syria’s Industry and Agriculture

The Syrian economy is being hit by the combined impacts of the US-NATO sponsored terrorist attacks and the economic sanctions regime.
The ultimate objective of the US-NATO covert war on Syria is the destabilization of the Syria economy and the destruction of Syria as a nation state.
Economic destabilization is conducted through various means:
An economic sanctions regime which has contributed to paralyzing trade and investment,
Acts of deliberate sabotage and piracy directed against the country’s industrial base.
Confirmed by the Syrian Chamber of Commerce, the Turkish government has sponsored the outright “stealing of production lines and machines from hundreds of factories in Aleppo city” with a view to disabling Syria’s industrial base.

Health Care in Syria before and During the Crisis

Health indicators improved considerably in the Syrian Arab Republic over the past three decades according to data from the Syrian Ministry of Health with life expectancy at birth increasing from 56 years in 1970 to 73.1 years in 2009; infant mortality dropped from 132 per 1000 live births in 1970 to 17.9 per 1000 in 2009; under-five mortality dropped significantly from 164 to 21.4 per 1000 live births; and maternal mortality fell from 482 per 100 000 live births in 1970 to 52 in 2009.

The Syrian International Coalition for health is determined within its scope and limitation to do all what it is possible not to allow a repeat of what has happened in other countries of the region, namely a total collapse of existing health infrastructure and systems.

english.al-akhbar.com – Saudi prince calls for further arming of Syrian insurgency

A senior member of Saudi Arabia’s monarchy called on Friday for Syrian rebels to be given anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons to ”level the playing field” in their battle against President Bashar al-Assad.
”What is needed are sophisticated, high-level weapons that can bring down planes, can take out tanks at a distance. This is not getting through,” said Prince Turki al-Faisal, a former intelligence chief and brother of the Saudi foreign minister.
Insurgents in Syria have seized territory in the north of the country and control suburbs to the east and south of the capital, but Assad’s air power and continued army strength have limited their advances 22 months into the conflict.
”I’m not in government so I don’t have to be diplomatic. I assume we’re sending weapons and if we were not sending weapons it would be terrible mistake on our part,” the Saudi prince said at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

“It becomes clear to most of the Syrians that what they are going through is a huge international conspiracy that the country has never encountered before, as it targets Syria’s entity, infrastructure, community and ethics that have characterized the Syrians for decades,” the Minister added.

Al-Moallem said that Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, led by the United States, are supporting, funding and arming terrorists in Syria, and that they work in the framework of an international plan against Syria with political, economic and military aspects.
“We have no delusions that these countries will cease supporting terrorism, but if the violence doesn’t stop, this doesn’t mean that comprehensive national dialogue will not be held,” al-Moallem added.
