Den kanske mest dramatiska händelsen under hela kampanjen mot Syrien, den påstådda gasattacken den 21 augusti 2013, framträder på ett sätt som avviker väldigt från den som presenteras i mainstreammedierna i den här artikeln från den 1 sept. av Yossef Bodansky – Did the White House Help Plan the Syrian Chemical Attack? – oilprice.com
There is a growing volume of new evidence from numerous sources in the Middle East — mostly affiliated with the Syrian opposition and its sponsors and supporters — which makes a very strong case, based on solid circumstantial evidence, that the August 21, 2013, chemical strike in the Damascus suburbs was indeed a pre-meditated provocation by the Syrian opposition.
The extent of US foreknowledge of this provocation needs further investigation because available data puts the “horror” of the Barack Obama White House in a different and disturbing light.
On August 13-14, 2013, Western-sponsored opposition forces in Turkey started advance preparations for a major and irregular military surge. Initial meetings between senior opposition military commanders and representatives of Qatari, Turkish, and US Intelligence [“Mukhabarat Amriki”] took place at the converted Turkish military garrison in Antakya, Hatay Province, used as the command center and headquarters of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and their foreign sponsors. Very senior opposition commanders who had arrived from Istanbul briefed the regional commanders of an imminent escalation in the fighting due to “a war-changing development” which would, in turn, lead to a US-led bombing of Syria.
The opposition forces had to quickly prepare their forces for exploiting the US-led bombing in order to march on Damascus and topple the Bashar al-Assad Government, the senior commanders explained. The Qatari and Turkish intelligence officials assured the Syrian regional commanders that they would be provided with plenty of weapons for the coming offensive.
Indeed, unprecedented weapons distribution started in all opposition camps in Hatay Province on August 21-23, 2013. In the Reyhanli area alone, opposition forces received well in excess of 400 tons of weapons, mainly anti-aircraft weaponry from shoulder-fired missiles to ammunition for light-guns and machineguns. The weapons were distributed from store-houses controlled by Qatari and Turkish Intelligence under the tight supervision of US Intelligence. …
En kommentar från – Syrian Perspective – ger en bild av hur hela kampanjen mot Syrien byggt på medialögner.
Arabi Souri has left a new comment on your post ”SECOND POST – NOVEMBER 28, 2012 – FIRST MEETING OF…”:
You know Khaled Oweis who is Reuters bureau head in Damascus is one of the main reasons why the Syrian state decided to expel all foreign media out of Syria to preserve the truth there?
He was detained at the beginning of the events after a report he made from Daraa interviewing an injured soldier and putting words in the fainting soldier’s mouth, soldiers says in weak voice: ‘We were shot at from the side of protesters’, Oweis repeats in higher voice: ‘Your officer shot at you because you refused to shoot at protesters?’ soldier trying to gather his strength: ‘No, the protesters were shooting at us’., Oweis repeats again: ‘So the officer was from the security and not your commander?’ and the interview was aired with Oweis’s voice only on Al Jazeera, Arabiya et al.
Well, Oweis’s bad luck was the presence of none else than the Syrian state TV cameraman who caught the conversation on video and when he saw the twisted version he delivered the tape to the ministry of information and they aired it on Syrian state satellite tv channel comparing both. I think it was in early April 2011, I saw it then. Immediately Oweis was arrested, detained for a couple of days before the entire ‘free’ world carried out a campaign to release the ‘journalist’ and so was done, but he and all the other foreign journalists were released from Syria with him.
He never stopped and you can read from his reports on Reuters, reporting from Amman, Jordan from the language of his reports you see how he takes sides, totally unprofessional journalist and a very bad dirty stain in Reuters history.
En intervju med en av de journalister som slutat på Al-Jazeera. Han befann sig på gränsen mellan Libanon och Syrien i maj 2011 och filmade en stor mängd beväpnade män som kom in i Syrien den vägen. Vid den tiden nämndes ingenting om väpnade grupper i nyhetsrapporteringen, men hans uppgifter och filmbevis släpptes inte igenom! Han säger också att han hade sett väpnade grupper där redan tidigare, men då hade han inte filmat.
Är beskrivningen av inledningen på oroligheterna i Syrien, som startade i mars 2011, som att fredliga obeväpnade demonstranter brutalt och hänsynslöst dödas, sann?
Ett par citat nedan motsäger denna bild. Från artikeln – Covering Syria: The Information War – som innehåller mycket information om mediernas verklighetsförvridning.
In the first months, the narrative was of unarmed protesters being shot by Syrian forces. This then evolved into one of armed insurgents reluctantly ”being provoked into taking up arms”, as US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton explained, to defend peaceful protesters.
It was also a narrative that from the outset, according to a recent report in Time magazine, that the US has facilitated by providing training, support and equipment to Syrian opposition ”cyber-warriors”.
Reports confirmed by leading Syrian opposition leaders in April 2011 reveal that in addition to cyber-training, weapons and money from Syrian exiles, as well as from a ”major Arab Gulf country” and a Lebanese political party, were being distributed to ”young demonstrators”. The former head of Russian intelligence, Yevgeny Primakov, similarly noted that the Syrian conflict ”started with armed revolts against the authorities, not peaceful demonstrations”.
Från ett inlägg på BBC den 30 april 2011
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.
