How The “Syrian Rebels” Really Feel About “Friendly” US Airstrikes

(excerpt)

More importantly, as Reuters reported, Dempsey said that the endgoal is “to recapture lost territory in eastern Syria”. Territory, which as we reported in July, amounts to 35% of Syria’s landmass and includes most of its oilfields. And sure enough, the territory would be preserved for the exclusive use of the “rebels”, or the group of Islamists from whose ranks none other than ISIS arose over the past year. And since the rebels couldn’t care one way or another, this is merely a way for the US to say that whatever Syrian territory is “liberated” from ISIS presence, it will be disposed of as the US sees fit, with the only decisions being whether to grant it to Qatar or Saudi Arabia.

In the meantime, things on the propaganda front are going form bad to worse. Recall the Nusra front – the extreme wing of the “rebels” that the US is allegedly supporting? Well as Haaretz just reported, “the al Qaida-linked Nusra Front on Saturday denounced U.S.-led air strikes on Syria, saying they amounted to a war against Islam and vowing to retaliate against Western and Arab countries that took part.”

*US Bombed ‘Empty Buildings’ in Airstrikes on ISIL in Syria

“15-20 days before the airstrikes, (ISIL) buildings were evacuated, and fighters then mixed in with the local population”.

*French President Hollande Says ‘ISIS Terror Caused by Global Warming’

(excerpts)

At the UN in New York, Hollande insistently claimed, even passionately claimed that global warming has driven millions of persons from their previously stable lives, making them more receptive to Islamic, or Crony Islamic terrorism. Hollande traced a direct link between global warming (now called “climate change”) and terrorism.

One estimate given by a French expert on global terrorism was that at its peak of power before 2005, al Qaeda had a “war chest” of 200 – 500 million US dollars, but the Islamic State, today, already has $2 to $3 billion in its own treasure chest. It can now buy more mercenary fighters.

This “surprise” is much less surprising than the fantastic claim, by Hollande at the UN, that “climate refugees” are swelling the ranks of terrorist movements, not only in the Middle East but also in Africa.

The revenues of the Islamic State are no surprise at all. Spy satellite surveillance of the Syria-Iraq-Turkey border region is supposedly unable to see ISIS oil tanker truck convoys shipping stolen oil from Syria into Turkey on a round-the-clock basis for at least the past three months, sold at prices as low as $33 – $40 a barrel. This oil and the road tanker trucks is supposedly “invisible” !

*Timmermans blames Russia for ISIS problem

At the Iraq Summit in Paris yesterday, Dutch Foreign Affairs Minister Frans Timmermans outed strong criticism against Russia for doing too little to aid global actions against the rise of the Islamic State (IS) in Syria and Iraq, according to the Algemeen Dagblad.

The AD writes that Minister Timmermans specifically pointed to Russia as the reason why the efforts to contain the growth of the terrorist movement has not been successful.

“If Russia had not continuously blocked the Security Council at the moment the action was necessary, we would not now have an IS problem”, the AD quotes Timmermans as saying.

The Summit pulled together 30 countries and organizations to discuss the necessary following strategy against the actions of IS.

According to the AD, Timmermans’ Russian colleague Sergei Lavrov said before the talks that IS should have been stopped earlier. Timmermans replied that Russia is the one who made action from the Security Council impossible, and holds Moscow accountable for a large part of the rise of ISIS in the Arabic region.

*“ISIS” is Merely a Backdoor to Ousting Assad. Here’s WHY & HOW…

“ISIS” is obviously an excuse to bomb Syria, as a back door attempt to oust Assad by providing air support for the faltering Free Syrian Army. Russian diplomacy foiled the first neoconservative push to bomb Syria last year.

We’re told by our government and media that we’ve been shown “beheading” videos. That’s not true. If you look hard enough online, you can find the RAW “beheading” videos. But in NONE of the three “beheading” videos (Foley, Sotloff, and Haines) does it show a head being cut off. As “Jihad John” ostensibly starts to saw their necks with his knife, the video fades to black. When the video comes back on, it shows a “headless body” with the purported head of the victim resting on the back.

It reminds me of the alleged Saddam Hussein “hanging” video. NOWHERE did it ever show Saddam hanging. It showed him with the noose around his neck, then the trap door opens and he falls through. BUT THEN THE VIDEO AGAIN GOES BLACK! When the video comes back, we see the ostensibly lifeless body of Saddam laying on the floor with the noose around his neck.

Seeing a pattern?

And where’s the video of the raid that allegedly killed Bin Laden?

It’s amazing that we can be TOLD what we are actually SEEING with our own eyes, and have our own observation be “overridden” by what our government & media tell us.

Edward Bernays would be proud.

The purpose of the fake beheadings is to sway public opinion to support action in Syria — a back door to overthrowing Assad; the first effort being thwarted by clever Russian diplomacy last year.

And don’t assume that the President or Congress are behind this. It’s much deeper. Powerful interests (whose bidding our politicians do; namely Israel & Saudi Arabia) want Assad removed.

Incidentally, the war in the Middle East is against SHI’A Islam, the House of Saud’s mortal enemy. Look whom ISIS is attacking — Shi’a-ruled countries — Syria & Iraq, with Iran being the ultimate prize, eventually; especially since the American public wasn’t buying the neocons’ lies and push to directly bomb Iran over the last 7 or 8 years. So Syria is a back door to Iran, as “ISIS” is a back door to Syria (Assad).

America doesn’t get its oil from Saudi Arabia, but much of the rest of the world does. And where do the Saudis invest their massive oil profits? Not in Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia invests its oil fortune in the U.S. economy. And currently we’re more desperate than ever for that investment. THAT’s the “relationship” between the U.S. & KSA. As with China, the U.S. desperately needs that massive Saudi investment into our debt-ridden, non-producing (except the Defense industry), faltering economy.

Remember a little over a year ago, the media said the U.S. was going to train the FSA (Free Syrian Army) in Jordan? It’s my contention that we armed and trained “ISIS” in the eastern desert of Jordan. And it wouldn’t surprise me if it was Blackwater/ Xe/ Academi (whatever they’ve changed their name to this week) who did the training.

How is ISIS funded? Where do they get their oil? Their arms? How do they manage logistically? Supply lines, etc.?

Of course we’re told they stole U.S. weaponry from Iraqi Army bases in northern Iraq, and that they robbed banks in Mosul (lol). How convenient. Now no one will raise an eyebrow when they see “ISIS” in humvees and shooting M-16s, and not question their funding.

If “ISIS” is as we’ve been told, why didn’t we bomb the holy hell out of them as they drove south from Mosul along the highway toward Baghdad in one, long convoy. We’ve been shown those photos by the media. I’m sure those photos were meant to elicit a feeling of desperation and fear in the American public, but to any thinking, rational, logical person it begged the question: Why aren’t we bombing that “ISIS” convoy like we bombed the retreating Iraqi Army in 1991 on the highway from Kuwait back to Iraq?!

Why? For the same reason “Pentagon lawyers” shut down Able Danger after Lt. Col. Shaffer’s team identified Mohammed Atta and several other “terrorists” in 2000. For the same reason western intelligence knew of Bin Laden’s 10-day stay for medical treatment at the American Hospital in Dubai in July 2001.

And that reason is: Why would the U.S. eliminate the very boogeyman it created? That boogeyman is needed to serve it’s psychological purpose as scapegoat.

*Syria: Another “Humanitarian War” Based on Lies & Deceit

April 13, 2012 – The Paris-based Centre for the Study of Interventionism (CSI) and Julien Teil, director of “Lies behind the “Humanitarian War” in Libya: There is no evidence!” has recently released a short documentary exposing how a cartel of Western nations and their Arab proxies are purposefully creating chaos inside targeted nations and then using it as a pretext to invade, topple governments, and replace them with preselected client regimes, and in effect threatening the very concept of national sovereignty.

Image: Just some of the corporate-financier interests represented by the National Endowment for Democracy’s (NED) Board of Directors. NED’s mission statement of “supporting freedom around the world” is exposed as a ludicrous cover for what is obviously an organization dedicated to expanding the corporate-financier hegemony of its membership and sponsors – merely using the cover of “democracy promotion” to justify what is in fact global imperial conquest.

*NATO Reports: Syria at Any Cost

As if there was any doubt, NATO’s official “Alliance News Blog” has confirmed that the US is committed to the overthrow of Syria’s government and is “already committed to helping [President Bashar al-Assad] fall,” but is “merely looking for the least violent, lowest cost way to get there.”

The Bloody Road to Damascus

The Bloody Road to Damascus: The Triple Alliance’s War on a Sovereign State

“The assault on Syria is backed by foreign funds, arms and training. Due to a lack of domestic support, however, to be successful, direct foreign military intervention will be necessary. For this reason a huge propaganda and diplomatic campaign has been mounted to demonize the legitimate Syrian government. The goal is to impose a puppet regime and strengthen Western imperial control in the Middle East. In the short run, this will further isolate Iran in preparation for a military attack by Israel and the US and, in the long run, it eliminates another independent secular regime friendly to China and Russia.

In order to mobilize world support behind this Western, Israeli and Gulf State-funded power grab, several propaganda ploys have been used to justify another blatant violation of a country’s sovereignty after their successful destruction of the secular governments of Iraq and Libya.”
