UK Has No Case For War On Syria

29 August 2013 — Moon of Alabama

[I was in the middle of putting together a piece on the UK’s obscene lust for war when MofA put this up. Thanks MofA. WB]

The British government is trying to construct a case to allow itself to attack Syria. To this purpose the British Joint Intelligence Organisations issued a two page paper on Syria: Reported Chemical Weapon Use (pdf). The paper cites the amount of propaganda Youtube videos of a certain incident as supporting “evidence”: Continue reading

US-British Al Qaeda Airlift: 3,000 Tons of Weapons Fuel Syria's Destruction

9 March, 2013 — Land Destroyer

The primary reason, we are told, that the West must immediately begin wider operations to support the so-called Syrian rebels is to head off extremists – namely Al Qaeda, from overrunning Syria. This narrative has been sold for nearly a year now as it has become evidently clear that all major offensives in Syria against the Syrian people and their government have been led by Al Qaeda terrorist fronts, including most notoriously, Jabhat al-Nusra.

The United Nations Syria “Peace Plan” is a Fraud By Tony Cartalucci

28 December, 2012Global Research

UN “peace envoy” Lakhdar Brahimi is attempting to broker a transitional government ahead of proposed elections in Syria. For Brahimi, his efforts are not only in vain, they are entirely disingenuous. The proposal of a “transitional government” in the midst of what is in fact a foreign invasion, funded, armed, and perpetuated openly by foreign interests violates both Syria’s sovereignty and the UN’s own founding charter.

Al Qaeda terrorists, backed, armed, funded, and diplomatically recognized by the West, have detonated 2 car bombs in Christian-Druze quarters in Damascus, killing dozens.

Twin car bombs carried out by the Western-backed so-called “rebels” have killed dozens of civilians in a Christian-Druze neighborhood in Damascus, highlighting the sectarian extremism, not “democratic” aspirations, as well as the level of depravity, driving opponents of the Syrian government. Immediately after the explosions, and as casualty figures began trickling in, Associated Press (AP) attempted to spin and downplay the act of terrorism, claiming in its report, “Twin car bombs kill 20 in Syria, hospitals say,” that:

“Syrian hospital officials say twin car bombs have killed at least 20 people in a Damascus suburb that is mostly loyal to President Bashar Assad.”

Mark Steel: That is a lot of bad apples

March, 2012GreenleftThe Independent

The US military in Afghanistan has had no luck.

The case of the soldier who went berserk in Afghanistan and killed 16 people must be utterly baffling to psychiatrists.

Who can imagine what might cause someone in a stable environment such as Kandahar, with reliable role models training you to distrust the entire local population as terrorists, and no access to weapons except automatic machine guns, to flip like that? Still, they say it’s always in the tranquil places that these things happen.
