Det är knappt man vågar säga det (för som någon sa, det känns ungefär lika tryggt med dessa västmakter som att man har en apa som hoppar runt med en osäkrad granat i närheten) men det tycks som att hotet har bedarrat en aning, just nu.

voiceofrussia.com – West splits up over the Syria situation
While Obama is laying out plans for his “limited strike” on Syria, he might be disillusioned to see that the West he had been pinning hopes on to have as allies has fallen into discord over the military intervention issue.
In fact the differences not only tear apart the European continent, they stir up disagreements inside countries.

A growing number of governments reject an illegal aggression against Syria warning against regional and international consequences.

Inte kan man väl kalla videon som visas på den här sidan, som sägs visa rebeller som laddar en missil med en granat med kemisk laddning, för bevis på att dessa låg bakom attacken förra veckan, om man inte har klara papper på var och när den är inspelad.

voiceofrussia.com – UN inspectors in Syria under total control of the rebel side – Robert Kelley
Robert Kelley, nuclear weapons programs’ specialist, told during the VoR Live Panel Syria: Is Obama George W. Bush’s clone? that the UN inspectors are under the total control of the rebel side while doing the inspections.
”Once UN inspectors are on the other side of truth line,we don’t know what they see,because they get a very scripted view. UN inspectors are under the total control of the rebel side while doing the inspections. UN inspectors are taken around by rebels,rebels determine who they can talk to,what samples they can take,” he said.
former Russian diplomat Vyacheslav Matuzov called the situation surrounding the chemical attack in Syria very suspicious.
”The situation surrounding the chemical attack in Syria is very suspicious. Russian team has proved through satellite images that rockets were launched from the territory of opposition groups. Why can’t Russian and US teams come to UN Security Council and compare their satellite images from Damascus?”
Press TV – Obama ‘confused’ about possible attack on Syria
US President Barack Obama “doesn’t really want to attack Syria” and he is “very confused” because his administration has to operate at the behest of “certain lobbies,” says Gilad Atzmon, a political activist.
Obama has said Washington has “concluded” that the Syrian government used chemical weapons in an attack near the capital, Damascus, last week and the government of the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has to face “international consequences.”
Meanwhile, the US has sent its fifth destroyer to the eastern Mediterranean. The cruise-missile equipped destroyer will join four other warships of the same kind in the region.
Nevertheless, Atzmon says Obama, whom he describes as “not necessarily ethical but definitely a thinking human being,” does not “really want to attack Syria.”
“It is very clear to me that they [US officials] operate because they have to appeal certain lobbies that are pressuring the American administration,” said Atzmon in a phone interview with Press TV on Thursday.
“I’m referring here obviously to the Jewish lobby in America, Jewish lobby in Britain, and Jewish lobby in France,” as well as lobbies “that are operating for Qatar and the Saudis.”
Gilad Atzmon – Western democracies instrument for criminal interventionism
It doesn’t take a genius to grasp that the American president doesn’t really want to attack Syria. He doesn’t want to topple Assad’s regime – he doesn’t have an alternative partner on the ground.

‘Bizarre to take action in Syria before UN report’
nyhetsbanken.se – Ingen rykande revolver
USA-tjänstemän sade på onsdagen att det inte fanns någon ”smoking gun” som direkt kopplar Syriens president Bashar Assad till gasattacken i al-Ghouta (New York Times 29 augusti).
nyhetsbanken.se – Falska brittiska premisser
Krigshetsaren David Cameron har gått på ett bakslag. Inför hotet att bli nedröstad i parlamentet i morgon torsdag har han dragit tillbaka den resolution som hans regering föreslagit.
Brittiska Labour invänder mot Camerons resolutionsförslag och har förelagt en alternativ resolution, helt och hållet i linje med folkrättens krav.
Regeringen har 70 mandats övervikt i parlamentet, men lika många ledamöter i regeringslägret rapporteras vara kritiska till det planerade nya kriget. Ett 30-tal har öppet tagit avstånd från regeringens linje.
Resolutionen innehåller dessutom sakliga felaktigheter. Tex påstås att Arabförbundet skulle stödja en väpnad insats.

Scott Creighton – Secret Evidence of Syrian Government Involvement in Chemical Weapons Attack Comes from… Israel
In an earlier article, I wrote about how one prestitute quoted “intelligence officials” when saying they had some secret evidence, a recording of a phone call, showing the Syrian government was responsible for the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria.
Well, guess what?
That “secret evidence” was provided to us by our good friends from Israel.
That’s right, the same Israel that really wants to keep the Golan Heights forever, have already tried to fabricate evidence of a previous chemical attack from Assad, and the same Israel that has already bombed Syria… twice.
That’s the source of the “secret evidence”
Not only that, but apparently a “large delegation” of Israel’s war-mongering spooks are in D.C. meeting with Obama administration officials pleading the case for Americans to go to war in order to stop Assad from “gassing the children”… while Israelis sit back and watch.
