Probing Western charade masking cont’ing attempts to raze independent nations

 Cowardly conspirators France, UK, U.S. vs. peoples of Middle East
Editing, re-reporting by Carolyn Bennett

Another False flag

The U.S., UK, and French governments have not explained why it matters whether people in the wars initiated by the West are killed by explosives made of depleted uranium or with chemical agents or any other weapon. [Paul Craig Roberts]
But the Syrian government, “knowing that it is not responsible for the chemical weapons incident,” has agreed for UN inspectors to come in and determine the substance used and the method of delivery.

“However, Washington has declared that it is ‘too late’ for UN inspectors and that Washington accepts the self-serving claim of the al Qaeda affiliated ‘rebels’ that the Syrian government attacked civilians with chemical weapons.”

In announcing the forthcoming attack on Syria (for Thursday), “Washington has once again preempted any hope of peaceful settlement, destroyed any incentive for the ‘rebels’ to participate in the peace talks with the Syrian government.”

In an article posted today at Press TV economist and columnist Paul Craig Roberts ponders the “real agenda” of the West.

“It was obvious from the beginning,” he says, “that [U.S. President] Obama was setting up the Syrian government for attack.”
After demonization came the “red line” then repeated unsubstantiated charges; and “the final step in the frame-up was to orchestrate a chemical incident and blame the Syrian government.”

But why, he asks?

“Clearly,” he says, “the U.S., UK, and French governments ─ which have continuously displayed their support for dictatorial regimes that serve their purposes ─ are not the least disturbed by dictatorships.

“They brand {Syrian President Bashar Hafez al-] Assad a dictator as a means of demonizing him for the ill-informed Western masses. 

“But Washington, UK, and France support any number of dictatorial regimes ─ such as the ones in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia; now Egypt’s military dictatorship that is ruthlessly killing Egyptians without any Western government speaking of invading Egypt for ‘killing its own people.’”

No, “the forthcoming Western attack on Syria has nothing whatsoever to do with bringing ‘freedom and democracy’ to Syria ─ any more than freedom and democracy were the reasons for attacking Iraq and Libya.” And “freedom and democracy” are still nonexistent in Iraq and Libya. The Western attack on Syria is also unrelated to human rights or justice or any of the high- sounding cause routinely used by the West to “cloak its criminality.”

Bashar al- Jaafari 
Western-made Syrian and chemical weapons’ crisis
Today from Syria's government

Ambassador Ja’afari is quoted saying, “The West and Turkey ‘have enabled terrorist groups to create a laboratory for chemical weapons on Turkish territory with materials provided by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar... and to bring these chemical weapons to Syria for use’.

The Syrian government, the ambassador said, “has been subject to false accusations. …” Many facts prove the government’s “innocence” and that “armed groups have used chemical weapons in order to bring about military intervention and aggression against Syria.”
Bashar al- Jaafari 

Syria’s insightful and learned Bashar al- Jaafari is Permanent Representative of the Syrian Arab Republic to the United Nations. He is a politician born April 14, 1956, in Damascus, who took his academic credentials at universities of Sceaux, Paris and of Sharif Hedayatuallah.

Bashar al- Jaafari began his political career with Syria’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (1980) and was the Third Secretary at the Syrian Embassy in Paris (between 1983 and 1988). Ja’afari achieved the professional level of Counselor during the years of 1991-1994 while serving at the Permanent Mission of the Syrian Arab Republic to the United Nations Headquarters in New York. He served again at the Syrian Embassy in France at the level of Minister Counselor (1997-1998) and from 1998-2002, he was appointed Minister Plenipotentiary and Chargé d'Affaires at the Syrian Embassy in Indonesia. In 2002, he was assigned Director of the Department of International Organizations at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Damascus, Syria and held the position until 2004. Ja’afari was then sworn in as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary and Permanent Representative of the Syrian Arab Republic to the United Nations Office in Geneva.  In 2006, he was sworn in as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary and Permanent Representative of the Syrian Arab Republic to the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

Syria’s Deputy Foreign Minister Miqdad

Faisal al-Miqdad was quoted in the press today saying that he had previously presented UN chemical weapons inspectors with evidence proving that ‘armed terrorist groups’ were behind deadly chemical attacks near Damascus last week. The foreign minister said, according to Reuters, that “terrorist groups are the ones” using chemical weapons “with the help of the United States, the United Kingdom and France …” 

He said “these chemical weapons will soon be used by the same groups against the people of Europe.”

Weapons of Mass Destruction USA (brief)


After World War I, the U.S. was party to the Washington Arms Conference Treaty of 1922 which would have banned chemical weapons but failed because it was rejected by France. The U.S. continued to stockpile chemical weapons, eventually exceeding 30,000 tons of material.
The U.S. had participated in the formulations of the Hague Conventions of 1899 and 1907 which banned chemical warfare among other things.

However, the United States never joined the article that prohibits chemical weapons.


Currently, the United States nuclear arsenal is deployed in three areas:

Land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles, or ICBMs;
Sea-based, nuclear submarine-launched ballistic missiles, or SLBMs; and
Air-based nuclear weapons of the U.S. Air Force's heavy bomber group

The exact number of nuclear weapons possessed by the United States is difficult to determine. Different treaties and organizations have different criteria for reporting nuclear weapons, especially those held in reserve, and those being dismantled or rebuilt:

As of 1999, the U.S. was said to have 12,000 nuclear weapons of all types stockpiled.

In its Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) declaration for 2003, the U.S. listed 5,968 deployed warheads as defined by START rules.

For 2007, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists listed the U.S. with about 5,400 total nuclear warheads: around 3,575 strategic and 500 nonstrategic warheads; and about 1,260 additional warheads held in the inactive stockpile. Other warheads are in some step of the disassembly process.

The exact number as of September 30, 2009, was 5,113 warheads, according to a U.S. fact sheet released May 3, 2010.

U.S. territory-born journalist sees acts of failure, cowardice

Voice of Russia journalist John Robles writes, “The plan to strike Syria is not only one of cowardice and an admission of utter and complete failure by the United States on the diplomatic front but it is also illegal without a United Nations resolution and an imminent threat to the United States of America itself.

“It is obviously cowardly because launching missiles while fearfully hiding behind a shield where there is no threat to [the U.S.] is not something that an honorable soldier on a battlefield would do.

“It is the tactic of a coward.

“This tactic, however, is necessary for [President] Obama because when the massive loss of American lives begins, the American people will rise up and no longer support all of the callous unthinking military adventures…, what some view as the illogical funding of Al-Qaeda and terrorists to carry out the dirty work.

“What will happen [also] when these terrorist elements … realize that they have been disposable pawns for the United States, that they have been killing their own brothers and mothers and sisters?”

John Robles concludes,”The United States is missing a very important opportunity in Syria …: a chance to rebuild its reputation and become a respected, intelligent and grown up member and leader of the world community by simply promoting a peaceful resolution…

The world is truly tired of U.S. bombs and bellicose rhetoric and the actions of an arrogant one-world-power wantonly bashing and bullying  
its way across the globe.

“My thoughts,” he said, “are with the Syrian people and my hope is that someone, somewhere, with the power to stop this madness will listen.

“How about it, President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, maybe it is time to use diplomacy and work for peace, and to finally put the weapons down?

“You have a Nobel Peace Prize, after all; or does that mean nothing?”

False flag

False flag or black flag describes covert military or paramilitary operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities, groups or nations than those who actually planned and executed them.

Operations carried during peace-time by civilian organizations, as well as covert government agencies, may by extension be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organization behind an operation, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_flag
