US wars: You win some, you win some

JULY 18-- Syrian rebels led by CIA and US special forces were able to assassinate three senior officials of President Bashar Assad's regime, targeted by NATO and the UN for Obama's TM Change, which we now can believe means "Regime Change". But news headlines today also tell of 24 NATO fuel tankers set alight in Afghanistan, by a Taliban insurgency of undetermined US backing, of course US contractors now get to sell NATO replacement tankers, AND elsewhere in occupation news, US auditors report $8 billion squandered in Iraq, although total spent, minus reconstruction achieved, probably yields far more billions than that. Meaning more growth opportunity for the US war industry, at Cost Plus. Unless cost squandered means plus should be refunded.

Kofi Annan troops to Moscow on behalf of the Pentagon

Poor Kofi, it is not easy being the head of the 'United Nations' brigade of the US military. Here he is, trooping off to Moscow pleading with Putin to allow the Pentagon to continue to try to smash up the Assad government in Syria. Annan Finds Mild Response in Russia on Syria. 'Russia, Help us out here!' must have been Kofi's plea. 35658

The two most important Left websites, Alternet and Common Dreams, have apparently censored out any online commentaries about the US government’s war drive for regime change in Syria

As Syria and the Pentagon imposed fighting in that country rages, the Left's two most important websites have eliminated all discussion of the matter! YES, if you go to these 2 Lefty sites, you will see basically NOTHING about Syria and Assad and Russia and China's opposition to Barack Obama's drive for war in Syria and then onto Iran! They can't seem to decide whether to back up Commander in Chief, Democratic Party General Barack Obama, and his not so lovely Colonel Hillary Clinton with their humanitarian imperialist Lefty support or not? So instead, they just censor the commentaries they allow to be published.

If by UN declaring a civil war in Syria classifies atrocities as war crimes, US covert forces there are war criminals

UN observers have now labeled rebel clashes in Syria as having escalated into "Civil War", initiating the legal foundation to go after Syrian president Assad on charges of "war" crimes. It's a welcome bit of sophistry and should cut both ways. If the insurgent groups are armed and lead by covert special op forces of the US and NATO, then who are the bigger war criminals? So far the massacres ascribed to Assad, provoking Hillary Clinton's condemnation, have proved to be the work of US-allied rebels.

Russia and China boycott US meeting calling for regime change in Syria

Russia and China are fed up with Pentagon manipulations all around the globe and have boycotted the meeting set up by the US to implement attacks on both Iran and Syria and threaten both with war and regime changes. China joins Russia in staying away from Syria talks.   See that hole in the middle of the dove of PEACE above Pentagon Hillary? That's big enough to fly a drone straight through it, I do believe. And how did she get to become a 'friend of Syria' anyway? She is completely monolingual and can only speak pigLatin it seems. Funny, since she goes around lecturing others, in that language, ALL AROUND the globe all the time. One would expect a 'friend of Syria' to at be able to speak some Arabic I would think. What would happen if all those that were monolingual in Chinese and Russian were suddenly to declare themselves to be 'Friends of the USA', and set up plans to deliver their 'friendship' through roses and nuclear weapons and all? Hillary? What would happen?

Wikileaks to release Syria Files, but to whose fortuity, and whose Wikileaks?

At first glance it looks like the Wikileaks cavalry to the rescue! Wikileaks and embattled Julian Assange back in the saddle, to expose the behind-the-scenes on Syria, to undermine the shelf-worn NATO Powerpoint Presentation, this time against Syria, the NATO powers' prelude to war. YAY WIKILEAKS! But there are interesting anomalies: the leaked correspondence is as recent as March, yet Wikicreep Daniel Domscheit-Berg sabotaged the group's anonymous leak gathering system a year ago, and so far the files purport to embarrass Assad... Were these leaked by the CIA-backed rebels? Stay tuned.

HRW says state-sanctioned torture is “crime against humanity” but not in US

They keep piling it on against Syria. Human Rights Watch declared that SYRIA'S state-sanctioned torture constitutes a "crime against humanity" but not when America does it. SYRIA'S "torture centers" stink, not ours. ITS chemical weapons stockpile is a threat, not ours. ITS pilots and military commanders are defecting, alas, not ours. The pre-game show for the War on Syria isn't even a remake of the Iraq or Libya war of aggression, it's a rerun. Syrian Curveballs are whispering about unspeakable tortures called "Basat al reeh", "Dulab" and "Falaqa", failing to mention they got them from the Guantanamo manuals. Not only is Human Rights Watch silent about American torture, it ignores explosion of crimes against humanity which have resulted from the Western intervention into Libya.

Syrian ‘truce’ negotiated by outsiders has a completely stillborn birth

That 'agreement' sure didn't last long! It was made on Saturday and dead by Sunday morning. Syrian opposition rejects UN transition plan. When you were created by Uncle Sam and have Uncle Sam batting hard for you, then why settle for power sharing? Oh! But then there's that small problem of China and Russia, too. They know what you 'rebels' and 'opposition' are up to, even if the entire world corporate press outside of these two countries is into playing stupid to one degree or other about what's afoot. You're now foot soldiers for the Pentagon and are waiting and willing to bide some time. No PEACE for you are the Syrian people as a whole because of that.

Western ‘Peace Movement’ sits by in ignorant and stupid silence as NATO assaults Syria via Turkish territory

There is a lot more going on here than Syria just shooting down a Turkish military jet, which is now being used as an excuse to support OVERT US allied military intervention against the Syrian government. In fact, the key COVERT war has been taking place along the Syrian-Turkish border for months with the Syrian city of Idlib being the focal point of that Western attack on the Bashar Assad led Syrian government. Because Idlib is only 10 miles from Turkey,it is where the so-called US/ Nato supplied 'Syrian rebels' have started the war at. (check the location out on google maps) 34987

Putin to Israel: if you start a war with Iran and Syria, it will also be seen as a US attack on Russia and China

The message is very simple that Putin has carried to Israel during his visit. It is the exact same one he gave directly to Obama at the G20 summit in Mexico last week. .... 'Don't start your war!' Is China solid in support of Putin's position for Russia? Here is how it seems from the Chinese pov...   'The Syrian opposition abroad has long called for a military operation in Syria similar to the one that helped toppling the Libyan regime of Muammar Gaddafi last year, but the United States and its European allies have shown little appetite for such intervention given the complexity of the Syrian situation and the repercussions it might drag, particularly on Israel. Syria's powerful regional allies with Iran and the Lebanese Hezbollah, along with its international ones, such as Russia, have greatly contributed in restraining the superpowers from considering a military offensive on Syria.' from Xinhua News Analysis: Syria's new government faces escalation of tension on international arena.

Not much of a surprise at all- The CIA is arming Syrian terrorists according to the New York Times

Hey we knew that already! Report: CIA aids in funneling arms to Syrian rebels. According to The New York Times, the CIA is helping to vet Syrian rebel groups for arms shipments paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar. Well what did all the Lefty liberal humanitarian imperialists think? That the US was all uninvolved in the arming of the Syrian Right Wing opposition to Assad? It was nothing more than a spontaneous rebellion against a bad guy? 34711

US military expansionism is BLOCKED by Putin at G20 Summit

Obama and Putin have just met in Mexico where the desires for the Pentagon to roll over Syria and into Iran were BLOCKED. Putin is not giving in to the US threats against Russia. Obama fails to secure support from Putin on solution to Syria crisis. Also see the BBC which covered the press conference after the meeting: Obama hits major road block for his Pentagon expansionism in Middle East.

What Is Really Happening in Syria?

Some are now beginning to ask this question, though to the thorough discredit of much of the Left and liberal US press, most of the people who should be mobilizing themselves in the streets against Obama and the US government cannot even discuss what's going on, because of the censorship of so many Left and liberal websites by their nominally anti- US imperialist owners. So we ask, What Is Really Happening in Syria? 34414

A good question from Russia

"Russia does not agree with the breakdown of the system of international law which is currently happening," said Yevgeny Minchenko, director of the Moscow-based International Institute of Political Analysis. "Why should Russia allow the Syrian regime to be annihilated by countries that it has a competitive relationship with like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the West?" 34409

Violence US military brought to Iraq, Obama Admin now is bringing to Syria

Here is this weekend's news from Iraq ... A wave of bombings across Iraq has killed 84 people and injured nearly 300 in the deadliest day in the country since US troops withdrew last year. ___ And now these thuggish Democratic and Republican politicians want to bring this Pentagon supplied bloodshed to Syria so that they can then blame Assad for it? Why don't they first spend some hundreds of billions of dollars to repair the mess they have made in both Iraq and Afghanistan before they go out looking for new targets to slaughter in Syria and Iran? Obama truly Sucks!

Syrian Foreign Ministry: ‘US Admin Continues Interference in Syrian Affairs and Open Support for Terrorists’

DAMASCUS, (SANA) An official source at the Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said that the US administration is continuing its blatant interference in the internal affairs of Syria, its open support for terrorists, covering up terrorists' crimes, distorting facts about Syria at the UN, and extorting countries and the international community to beleaguer Syria. 34389

Is Syria’s government using children as shields for its military personnel? Says who? Says Radhika Coomaraswamy for the Pentagon and the UN that’s who.

Every day there is some new atrocity the Syrian government of Bashar Assad is accused of, reported in the pro-USG, pro-Pentagon corporate media. Here, for example, is the latest item of this propaganda from the LA Times... Syrian children tortured, used as human shields, U.N. report finds. 34385

Iran: Syrian intervention ‘will be defeated’

'Mashragh earlier reported that Irans armed forces had formed a joint war room with officers from the resistance which includes Iran, Syria and Hezbollah, which controls parts of Lebanon.' Mashregh is a media outlet run by Iran's Revolutionary Guards. See Iran: Syrian intervention 'will be defeated'. It seems really clear that the Obama Administration's plans to attack the government of Syria under Bashar Assad are also plans to attack Iran as well.

If the US really wants Peace for Syria, then why would it reject including Iran in those Peace Talks?

A quiet and rather hidden away news item today is that the US and its allies have just rejected a Syrian peace initiative put forward by Russia and China. Why on earth would the Obama Administration do that, since it says it's supposedly working to create Peace in Syria? ***See Syria: West rebuffs proposal to work with Iran to solve crisis *** 'Efforts to forge a united international response to the Syria crisis have been dealt a double blow as the West rebuffed a proposal to work with Iran and Russia rejected a new US peace initiative.' 34249

Latest massacre in Syria has almost all the hallmarks of a US military atrocity

The victims are civilian, most of them women and children, killed with disproportionate force, with the usual un-Islamic effort made to burn the bodies to cover it up. Hell, this could have been an all-American lone-GI "Kandahar Shooting Spree", if you believe the DoD and don't want to credit our US Special Forces Death Squads. If only the dead had been peed on or had trophy fingers removed, we'd know for sure. Now President Bashar Assad's forces are reportedly preventing western "monitors" from either coming upon, or leaving the crime scene, to spin NATO's nauseatingly regular calling card and frame Assad for the atrocity to justify Western intervention. Said Assad of last week's massacre of Syrian civilians, it "was the work of monsters" which is codeword for Israelis and their habitual inhumanity toward non-Jewish Semites, but clearly now must include US standard practice as it pursues its global war on Islam.

Hillary Clinton, America’s new ‘Peace activist’ NOT

In the US world of constant corporate and Pentagon propaganda, nothing is seen as too absurd to try to float by the dazed and dumbed down American public these days. Today's blues/gnus, for example, has Mitt Romney denouncing Obama for screwing up the national economy, even though Obama bailed out the mega corporate banking institutions with public tax money, just exactly as the Republicans wanted him to do, too! Romney believes the selectorate is so fogged out that they forgot all about that. Is that possible in Stupid America? Certainly so! And then there's the amazing case of Hillary Clinton, who apparently is our Nobel Peace Bomber Prize President, Barack Obama's, idea of a 'peace activist'... WTF???? Hillary the 'peace activist'? Can't be true, can it? 34193

Do as we say and not as we do? -D.C. slaughters civilians in Afghanistan even as it lectures Assad of Syria

There is nothing more sickening than Hillary and Barack lecturing others about their supposed slaughter of civilians even as they slaughter them themselves in Afghanistan and elsewhere. Afghan leader: NATO airstrike killed 18 civilians ___Just who are Clinton and Obama to be lecturing Assad of Syria about anything involving Human Rights?
