Ännu en särskilt viktig artikel om händelserna de senaste veckorna! Phil Greaves – Syria: Has Obama Finally Forsaken the Insurgency?
Several reports leading up to the alleged chemical attack claim that the United States – in line with its covert policy of over two years – had prepared and deployed a “rebranded”, moderate, non-jihadist battalion of rebel fighters into Syria with the desired objective of creating a buffer-zone in the southern province of Da’raa (birthplace of the insurgency); from which the rebels would regroup and replenish supplies lost in consecutive defeats in preparation for a “Storm on Damascus”: a carbon-copy of the CIA’s strategy during the overthrow of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi – minus the crucial NATO airforce.
An article from August the 22nd, authored by Yossef Bodansky
, an Israeli-American political scientist who served as Director of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare of the US House of Representatives from 1988 to 2004 claims:
Starting Aug. 17 and 18, nominally Free Syrian Army (FSA) units — in reality a separate Syrian and Arab army trained and equipped by the CIA as well as Jordanian and other intelligence services — attempted to penetrate southern Syria from northern Jordan and start a march on Damascus. Two units, one 250-strong and one 300-strong, crossed into Syria and began advancing parallel to the Golan Heights border. Their aim was to break east and reach Daraa quickly in order to prepare the ground for the declaration of Daraa as the capital of a “Free Syria”. However, the CIA’s FSA forces met fierce resistance by the unlikely coalition of the Syrian Army, local jihadist forces (mainly the locally-raised Yarmuk Brigades), and even tribal units who fear the encroachment by outside forces on their domain. By Aug. 19 and 20, the FSA units were surrounded in three villages not far from the Israeli border.
In a revealing interview on Sunday, Obama gave further sign of a shift in US policy and refused to be drawn on the future of Assad. Obama effectively announced the US intention of giving up on the insurgency, and said the “United States can’t get in the middle of somebody else’s civil war.” and reiterated previous statements that “We can’t enforce– militarily, a settlement there.” Has a deal to halt the US-led insurgency been done? Will the US stop arming jihadists now? Is Russia urging Syria to destroy its CW stockpile the carrot necessary to appease the angry donkey and the 800 pound gorilla (aka: the US military industrial complex & Israel)? In the remote scenario of a solid reconciliation between Russia and the US and a move toward peace; are Washington still able to control their autocratic clients in the Middle East?
Kevin Barrett – Obama, Dempsey slap down neocons on Syrian false-flag
Now the neocon plan for a US war on Syria, followed by war on Iran, is off the table.
The neocons are furious. Their rage is palpable. The foul stench of their unrighteous anger rises like toxic fumes from the American editorial pages they so treasonously dominate.
How will Netanyahu and his neocons respond?

voiceofrussia.com – Chemical warheads of missiles launched near Damascus could be handicraft – UN
UN inspectors, who visited the sites of chemical weapons attacks carried out near Damascus in August this year, came to the conclusion that warheads of these missiles could be either made at factory or handicraft.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon received UN inspectors’ report on the use of chemical weapons in Syria and presented it to the UN Security Council.
According to the report, the experts didn’t find warheads allegedly filled with nerve gas sarin.
The UN experts believe that the way missiles’ remainders are scattered suggests that they could be launched from a multiple rocket launcher (MRL).
The report says the experts don’t exclude the possibility of transporting material evidence of the chemical weapons attack to another place either immediately after the firing or before UN inspectors’ arrival.
