Syria: Golden Days of Disinformation

The Houla Massacre and the Battle of Taldou

Egypt's Morsi: Biting the bullet By Eric Walberg

25 November 2012 Eric Walberg

‘America preparing military intervention in Syria’ — RT

5 January 2012 — ‘America preparing military intervention in Syria’ — RT

Damascus is criticizing the US for sending an envoy to Cairo’s Arab League discussions about ending the Assad regime’s crackdown on dissent. London-based political analyst Chris Bambery says the US is preparing for a military intervention in Syria.

­According to Barbery, sanctions against Syria are only the beginning of Western intervention. ‘The key ally in this enterprise, Turkey, has been involved with the Free Syrian Army – training them, and we know there are also American advisers in those camps in Turkey,’ he says. And, ‘when you combine all that – sanctions, diplomatic moves, the involvement with the Free Syrian Army, it begins to create a dynamic that though perhaps the Americans don’t want involvement in the military operation in Syria, they can pull it in that direction.’

Millions of Egyptians have voted in the first parliamentary election since the fall of President Mubarak. But many doubt whether it will change much, with the army generals who took over from the ousted president still holding the reins.

Authorities report unexpectedly high turnout reaching an estimated 70 to 80 per cent over the two days of voting. Some lines to the polling stations were several kilometers long.
