Egypt’s revolution betrayed: Fuel for al-Qaeda fires By Eric Walberg

5 July 2013 — Eric Walberg

During the past few months, dozens of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood (MB) members have been murdered and their offices sacked and burned. The police openly refuse to protect them. Rather than ordering the opposition to drop their demand that Egypt’s first democratically elected president, Mohammed Morsi, resign, and negotiate reasonably with his government, the army gave him a Hobson’s Choice: resign or be ousted.

How damn convenient Syria Has Used Chemical Weapons

13 June 2013

How damn convenient!

Syria Has Used Chemical Weapons Against Rebels, U.S. and European Officials Conclude
American and European intelligence analysts now believe that President Bashar al-Assad’s troops have used chemical weapons against rebel forces in the civil war in Syria, an assessment that will put added pressure on a deeply divided Obama administration to develop a response to a provocation that the president himself has declared a “red line.”

So says the NYT quoting an ‘internal memorandum’. And just as the ‘rebels’ got a bloody nose and it looks like the Syrian govt might be turning the corner. It’s Saddam’s phony bloody WMD all over again!

But will we learn? And more importantly, will our propagandized population stop this madness? I’m doubtful. So another country destroyed in the Empire’s orgy of destruction.

Shame on us for doing nothing to stop the barbarians!

In Search of Syria’s True Friends By Polina Chernitsa

24 February 2012 — Voice of Russia

The ‘Friends of Syria’ is a contradiction in terms. In reality, these countries are Syria’s enemies which are not trying to reach a peaceful settlement but want to provoke a civil war, the Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee for International Affairs Alexey Pushkov has declared. An international conference of the Friends of Syria, which includes countries and organizations that advocate a unilateral ceasefire in Syria, is being held in Tunisia on Friday. The opposition Syrian National Council has already demanded that the participants supply weapons to the militants of the so-called Syrian People’s Army.
