Syria: U.S threats intended to cover the losses of Bandar bin Sultan By Wassim Raad

26 August 2013 — Voltaire Network

The new case of chemical weapons caused by the coalition of Western powers, Israel, retrograde Gulf monarchies, and executed by takfirist movements has fizzled because of the vigilance of the Syrian-Russian-Iranian alliance. Russian satellites are very active over Syria and the information gathered by the Syrian military command shows that the “chemical film” aims to serve as a pretext for aggression against Syria, to compensate for losses suffered by terrorist gangs sent from Jordan.

“Doctors” Behind Syrian Chemical Weapons Claims are Aiding Terrorists By Tony Cartalucci

25 August 2013 — Land Destroyer

The “evidence” upon which the West is propping up its narrative of the Syrian government using chemical weapons against large numbers of civilians hinges so far entirely on claims made by “Doctors Without Borders.” In the New York Times article, “Signs of Chemical Attack Detailed by Aid Group,” it is reported:  Continue reading this...

The Obama Regime’s Fabricated “Terror Conspiracy” in Defense of the Police State By Prof. James Petras

13 August 2013 — Prof. James Petras

Introduction
Representative democracies and autocratic dictatorships respond to profound internal crises in very distinctive ways: the former attempts to reason with citizens, explaining the causes, consequences and alternatives; dictatorships attempt to terrorize, intimidate and distract the public by evoking bogus external threats, to perpetuate and justify rule by police state methods and avoid facing up to the self-inflicted crises.
