Egypt is currently at a dangerous crossroads which could evolve towards a civil war.

It is important to understand Washington’s role, which is carried out by the Pentagon and US intelligence.

While the Armed Forces have cracked down on the Muslim Brotherhood,  the Coup d’Etat is ultimately intended to manipulate the protest movement and prevent the accession of a “real people’s government”.

“Netanyahu has Decided to Attack Iran Before the U.S. Elections in November”
By Michael Carmichael
Netanyahu‘s agenda is much broader than knocking out Iranian nuclear installations for his aim is to reshape the political landscape in the USA and Israel shifting everything to the far, far right in order to create a new comfort zone for religious fundamentalists. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article31695.htm

People have been left without water or electricity as rebels destroy water pumps and power converters. Civilians are forced to stay inside as snipers shoot from the rooftops.

RT in Damascus managed to contact an eyewitness in Homs, who says self-proclaimed revolutionaries are killing civilians in the streets. Galina says leaving home is out of the question, as snipers “can shoot you in the back.”

They kill both young and old. They steal people from their homes and chop them into pieces, put them in plastic bags and throw them out!”

She claims rumors are spreading of gunmen from France, Lebanon and Tunisia killing Syrians.

They mostly kill Christians here,” she says.

Galina says people in Homs support the Assad government and want “the revolution” to be over.

Earlier reports said rebels left Homs under pressure from Assad’s forces, but threatened to retaliate.

 

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.

A Poisoned Chalice: Liberation, ANC-Style By John S. Saul

6 January 2012 — The Bullet • Socialist E-Bulletin No. 585

There is good and obvious reason to celebrate the long history of the African National Congress (ANC): the organization’s marked dedication over one hundred years to the cause of the betterment of the lot of the oppressed African people in South Africa. It has also sustained an honourable commitment to a multi-racial, pan-ethnic outcome to the struggle against the unequivocally racist system that both segregation and apartheid came to represent for so long in South Africa. And, not least important, the ANC is now in power.

How US-led regime change warriors train and misuse bloggers for their dirty games

Sometimes even the notorious Zionist hasbara trolls can be useful to reveal something interesting. Here it’s a network of bloggers trained by US-led “soft war” warriors to be used for US-led regime change operations. A few days ago CNN and a self-styled London based anti-Syrian propaganda organisation calling itself Syrian Observatory for Human Rights spread an updated version of the Kuwaiti incubator lie. Basically the story was that Syrian security killed babies in incubators in Hama, widely a copy of the well-known fairy tale fabricated by Lauri Fitz-Pegado with PR company Hill & Knowlton to prepare the public ground for the US-led invasion of Iraq back in 1990.

Bitter clashes on in Libyan capital

27 August 2011 — Strategic Culture FoundationThe Voice of Russia

Bitter clashes are continuing in the Libyan capital Tripoli. The troops that are loyal to Gaddafi, as well as his supporters, have repulsed a rebel attack on the Bu-Salim district of Tripoli, with dozens of rebels and foreign mercenaries fighting against Gaddafi reported killed in the attack.

Once rebels captured the greater part of Tripoli, they started looting shops and did not even spare the Jamahiriya national museum.

On Friday night, they established control over the Ras-Djdir border pass into Tunisia. Meanwhile, the residents of the Gaddafi hometown Sirte have vowed to fight to the bitter end.

Despite previous reports, the Transitional National Council has not moved from Benghazi to Tripoli for security reasons.

What’s more, the rebel leaders are in the Nafus Mountains, according to some reports.

The Gaddafi whereabouts are still unknown, and a large reward has been offered for him.
