Syria: Keep Dreaming Kiddos By JASON HIRTHLER

13 September 2013 — Counterpunch

Laurent Fabius: Disgracing France and confirming once again that social democrats are bankable traitors. Public opinion is overwhelmingly against war in France but France is no longer a democracy, either.

 With almost pathological haste, Western governments have moved to undermine Russia’s sensible proposal for Syria to hand over its chemical stores, thus avoiding the needless carnage being proposed by the United States. In an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley not hours after the proposal gained the tentative acceptance of the Syrians, Obama grudgingly conceded it was a positive development, but quickly added that it would never have been possible without “a credible military threat,” and sounded all the appropriate reservations. Hillary Clinton also warned that the initiative, however hypothetically, cannot be, “another excuse for delay or obstruction.”

URGENT: False Flag Involving Israel to Implicate Syria in the Works Says RT By Tony Cartalucci

10 September 2013 — Land Destroyer

After a stunning geopolitical move by Russia and Syria involving the surrendering of Syria’s chemical weapons arsenal, the special interests seeking war have been forced to adjust their rhetoric and timetable around what is now a quickly dissolving casus belli.

Kerry’s Syria gaffe takes wings By Melkulangara BHADRAKUMAR

10 September 2013 — — Strategic Culture Foundation

Launching a war in slow motion against a faraway country is never a smart thing to do, but it can have its advantages, too, in case the need arises to rein in the war on reflection before it gets under way. That seems to be happening in the case of the United States’ planned strike on Syria.

Preparations for regional war By Thierry Meyssan

9 September 2013 — Voltaire Network

Both the United States and France are busy with preparations for the bombing of Syria, although such action corresponds to no strategic objective for either state. Russia and the Axis of Resistance are therefore preparing their riposte. The major difficulty consists in transforming this agression into a regional war while avoiding the Third, (and final?) World War. Whatever happens, if they engage in war, the Western world will have to deal with a long and wide-ranging conflict like nothing they’ve experienced since Vietnam.

Will President Obama Wear His Nobel Peace Prize Medal When He Bombs Syria?

8 September 2013 — China Matters

For all you anti-war types sniggering over President Obama’s well-deserved Syria travails, just remember: he’s the president of the United States, and he can do something about it.
 
Not to you.  To Syria.
 
Especially if he has to attack Syria without congressional approval, I find it unlikely President Obama will give some Syrian army munitions dump a symbolic, admonitory plink and then return to business as usual in Washington as a neutered lame duck (assuming that ducks can be neutered*).
 
No, I think he will give serious thoughts to doubling down in order to 1) rebut accusations of wimpish impotence and 2) bury the memory of the humiliating debate under a serious, prolonged, and seriously distracting barrage of ordinance.
 
So we might be treated to a Syrian version of the miraculously expanding Libyan no-fly zone (the Libyan air force was destroyed within a week or so, but NATO kept bombing targets for months anyway). Every Syrian army base, government office, warehouse, truck, and toilet could be deemed a possible WMD sanctuary and plastered accordingly.

Reza Nasri: Syria Should Quickly Sue the United States at ICJ By: Kourosh Ziabari

Iran Review Exclusive Interview with Reza Nasri

The U.S. drumbeating for war against Syria over the allegations that the government of President Assad has used chemical weapons against the civilians in the Ghouta district of Damascus has raised many eyebrows across the world as few people expected the seemingly pacifist and peace-loving President of the United States to call for a new war in the Middle East, especially now that there’s no threat posed to the U.S. national security or national interests.

The New York Times has an article today (9/5/13) about a Human Rights Watch report charging Syria’s government with the use of  cluster bombs, a “widely prohibited weapon.”  Cluster bombs are munitions that release hundreds of miniature explosives; as the Times‘ Rick Gladstone writes, “Each bomblet detonates on impact, spraying shrapnel in all directions and killing, maiming and destroying indiscriminately.”

The Art of Collaborating with the Nazi’s: Hollywood & America Reek of Nazi Influence

Hitler’s Propaganda Principles Alive in 21st Century

 

The studio heads, who were mostly immigrant Jews, went to dramatic lengths to hold on to their investment in Germany. Although few remarked on it at the time these men followed the instructions of the German consulate in Los Angeles, abandoning or changing a whole series of pictures that would have exposed the brutality of the Nazi regime….At the center of the collaboration was Hitler himself.
