New Documents Reveal Secret British Efforts To Arm, Assist And Propagandize ‘Moderate Rebels’ In Syria

18 September 2020 — Moon of Alabama

In November 2018 some anonymous people published a number of documents that had been liberated from a clandestine British propaganda organization, the Integrity Initiative.

The same group or person who revealed the Integrity Initiative papers has now released several dozens of documents about another ‘Strategic Communication’ campaign run by the British Foreign Office. The current release reveals a number of train and assist missions for ‘Syrian rebels’ as well as propaganda operations run in Syria and globally on behalf of the British government.

The U.S. Imperialists Continue To Conceal Their Destruction & Robbery Of Syria

The U.S. Imperialists Continue To Conceal Their Destruction & Robbery Of Syria

According to what we’ve been hearing from the Western media for these last nine years since the Syrian war started, the U.S. hasn’t had any detrimental role to play-and imperialism couldn’t possibly be any kind of relevant factor. But there’s a reason why non-imperialist Syria reporters like Vanessa Beeley have been thoroughly attacked, and why so many people (including me) have been censored for speaking the truth about what the Washington imperialists have done. The Syria narrative managers are so anxious to crush opposing voices because if those voices get recognition, a vast series of U.S. crimes will be exposed.

Update 10 July 2020

As OPCW’s Executive Council voted this week on whether to take action on the first IIT report, Frank Myers publishes a useful overview reminding the public of the ‘Western media’s Syrian shame’ concerning ‘chemical weapons and cover-ups’. OPCW’s management itself appears to be ashamed too, as on Twitter it hides replies to its tweeted announcement when these mention the whistleblowers and their testimony.

How a US & Qatari regime change deception produced the ‘Caesar’ sanctions driving Syria towards famine

25 June 2020 — The Grayzone

Like the mysterious figure it is named for, the Caesar sanctions bill is the product of an elaborate deception by shadowy US and Gulf-backed operatives. Instead of protecting Syrian civilians, the unilateral measures are driving them towards hunger and death.

By Max Blumenthal

The US Department of Treasury’s imposition this June of the so-called Caesar Civilian Protection Act, a draconian set of economic sanctions on Syria, amounts to a medieval-style siege on all Syrians living inside the country’s territory.

Inspired by photos that Western governments and media claim were smuggled out of Syria by a supposed Syrian military whistleblower codenamed “Caesar,” the sanctions are the product of a highly deceptive intelligence operation orchestrated by the US and Qatari governments.

US and EU provoke food crisis in Syria

12 June 2020 — Voltaire Network

The International Coalition having abandoned all hope of destroying the Syrian Arab Republic by force, the United States and the European Union are now seeking to achieve the same result by making people hungry.

The siege of Syria has begun. Economic sanctions have been severely tightened and will be further squeezed in mid-June. Any person or entity that trades with Syria will be harshly penalized by the United States and the European Union (Caesar Law).

Apache helicopters of the US occupation forces flew low Sunday morning, according to residents of the Adla village, in the Shaddadi countryside, south of Hasaka, as they dropped ‘thermal balloons’, an incendiary weapon, causing the wheat fields to explode into flames while the hot dry winds fanned the raging fire.

The Canary news website based in the United Kingdom recently obtained the declassification of British official documents relating to Venezuela. They disclose the existence, since January 2019, of a secret unit within Whitehall (the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office) in charge of planning first the destabilization and subsequently the reconstruction of the country.
