Syria rebels and regime blame each other for 1st alleged chemical weapons attack – CBS News

Is this going to be the casus belli for the invasion of Syria? The provocations of Assad have been ongoing for quite some time and show no signs of relenting.
The Syrian government is blaming the first chemical attack on the foreign backed rebels, and the rebels are pointing the finger at the Assad regime.

Syrian state media accused rebels of firing a chemical weapon for the first time on Tuesday in the north of the country, killing at least 15 people in the war-torn Aleppo province. Rebels quickly denied the report and accused regime forces of firing a chemical weapon on a long-range missile.

I wouldn’t be surprised if we see boots on the ground in Syria in just a short time. The U.S. and Israel seem to be itching for a fight in Syria as a pretext for war with Iran. With this news announcement of chemical weapon use (no matter who used them) we could very well see foreign intervention in Syria very soon.

Just over the Horizon

сирия алеппо бои противостояние сирия оппозиция сирия повстанцы сирия оружиеThe conflict in Syria is rapidly turning into a war just over the horizon. In the days I’ve been away (yes, again) due to computer issues, there have been many developments regarding the West’s pressure to remove al-Assad. President Obama has not ruled out a military strike (independent of any UN or NATO action), and has been issuing ultimatumsto the Syrian government.

The United States has threatened Syria with military action regardless of UN backing.

I think the Western forces underestimated the resistance they would meet when they planned this (mis)adventure.
The US tried to duplicate its “victory” in Libya while assuming no variances. This has been a mistake so far as the Syrian troops have been able to push back all of the attacks by the rebels. Since the Libyan playbook didn’t work out, the war rhetoric is getting more aggressive.
Obama says that even moving chemical weapons is enough to trigger an armed conflict with the US; acting alone if necessary.
We learned not too long ago that the CIA was directed by Obama to support the Syrian rebels , who turned out to be al-Qaeda.

….the Obama administration has conceded al-Qaeda’s involvement in the Syrian rebellion.

We also learned not very long ago that chemical weapons were found to be in the hands of these same rebels. So what we have, in my opinon, is a perfect setup for a false flag operation in Syria to justify an invasion. A Free Syrian Army fighters (Reuters/Handout via Reuters TV)This would definitely draw in Iran and that is all it would take for a major military confrontation that would ignite the entire middle east.
In addition to a conflict that will not only affect the infrastructure and economies of the countries in the middle east, but this could also turn into a conflict that spans the globe.

Russia and China have opposed military intervention in Syria throughout 17 months of bloodshed and have vetoed three U.N. Security Council resolutions backed by Western and Arab states that would have raised pressure on Damascus to end violence.

There has been an ongoing campaign to destabilize Russia which seems to point to this entire debacle being pre-engineered. Coupled with the diplomacy issues we face in Russia, China has also been growing colder in their relation with the US, and aggressively supporting N. Korea.
It appears that we are at the brink of world war and TPTB don’t seem willing to change course. It really sucks being a pleb at times like these…

What the rest of the world sees…

Why is it that most people cannot see the hypocrisy in the US’s decision to back the Syrian rebels? The rebels have been proven to contain members of various organizations and most of them are from outside of Syrian borders. In fact, Hillary Clinton has acknowledged that these very same Syrian rebels that President Barack Obama has directed the CIA to support contain members of al-Qaeda!

The scenario playing out in Syria today resembles the gameplan that took place in Libya not too long ago. Again we see the West supporting its own enemies in order to acheive its political goals.
Is the entire world so afraid of the US and Israel that they dare not speak up? Are Americans themselves so willfully ignorant of the facts that they too dare not speak up to end this military intervention?
The two largest opponents of any action regarding Iran seem to be coming from Russia and China and if we are intentionally wrecking our relationships with these world powers, we might be in for a nasty unwelcome surprise.
Don’t think though, that Iran is alone in the world. Over 8,000 foreign diplomats are slated to attend the NAM summit in Tehran later this month. These diplomats represent around 55% of the world’s population!
It looks like the only people who can stop the war before it begins are the only ones who can’t see what the rest of the world sees. The ones who need to need to acknowledge the hypocrisy are the very ones who are willfully ignorant about it and won’t listen to reason.
I hate to have to get my tin hat out, but I’m beginning to believe there is some sort of sinister plot behind a lot of what is going on lately. It doesn’t seem to be in the US’s interests to keep waging war after war. What is the ultimate end game?

Never a moment’s rest…

150294523US002_GAS_MASKS_DIThere is never a moment’s rest when it comes to beating the drums of war. Every waking hour is spent worrying about what is on the horizon, not only for Americans, but what is on the horizon for all of humanity.
512305_ote_rugby_120x600The push for war with Iran and Syria seems to get more and more aggressive everyday. I’m not sure what TPTB are waiting on, but I am sure it will happen before the year is out.
I’m really not sure if Israel’s ultimatums are anything more than window dressing for the masses. However the masses are erring on the side of caution, in Israel at least. Citizens there are stocking up and readying themselves for a conflict. Although the Israeli government wants the masses to believe the conflict would only last a month or so, and with only a few Israeli casualties, but we all know how long these conflicts will last; take a look at Afghanistan or Iraq.
There is still some division within the Israeli government as to whether Israel should risk an attack on Iran without stronger commitments from Barack Obama. Yet, where there is no division is whether to attack or not. Israel is trying to push for a more solid commitment from US and is beating the drums of war to get it. Israel has already made it clear it would like the US to wage the war on Iran, but is also threatening to draw us in by engaging in a unilateral attack. This sort of thinking would have more than the 500 Israeli casualties Israel thinks it may sustain. What about all of the US service men and women in the line of fire between Iran and Israel?
Once again, Israel is playing with fire. It won’t be too long until the US and Israel gets burned.


Look who Iran’s warning now

I’ve been saying for a while that the Syria/Iran war talk will spill out onto the entire region in the middle east…

Things are heating up fast and even “seemingly” neutral countries are making preparations for what is coming…

Scary times indeed!

Look who Iran’s warning now.


One step closer…

Things are moving at a feverish pace in the past few days and I’m having a difficult time keeping up on what is happening in Syria and analyzing what it all means. I think this is part of the plan. It seems to be working very well. Most people I interact with don’t seem to know much about the conflicts in Syria.
Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin NetanyahuThere seems to be an ongoing campaign to keep the masses confused. There are reports out suggesting the US will wait until 2013 to do anything about Iran if the talks fail by then. Yet, on the contrary we see Israelis stocking up, and Israeli government officials declaring the talks have failed and diplomacy has ended.
Israel has decided to step up the war rhetoric by the above announcement and also preparing for a multi-front conflict, while preparing to attack Iran. I figured that was a logical move considering their history with their neighbors. mapI’m not so sure it is a strategic defensive maneuver, but rather setting up for a land grab as suggested by Michael Rivero, considering it looks as if the conflict is starting in the Sinai region, and Israel is talking about attacking Lebanon! Add to that, Saudi Arabia has told citizens to leave Lebanon immediately (another link), along with Qatar and the UAE following suit.
Israel seems to think that the conflict, once begun, will only last a short time (another link). However, as we have seen in other military conflicts of the recent past, brief will be one adjective we will not use to describe it. While Israel is preparing for a confrontation with Iran, they are also stepping up the war fever with Syria. Again the mention of Assad and chemical weapons paints a grim picture of what’s to come in the region (regime change…again). The Israeli Ambassador to the US, Michael Oren recently said:

“If you had to assign a clock to” Syria, Oren said, “that clock is ticking.”

Baseball Gear From SportsKids.ComThe media tries to paint Assad as a loner and quickly without support, but that isn’t the truth. The war mongering surrounding Syria along with the Western backed rebels, is being watched by the entire world, and not going unnoticed. The Israeli government and the US government is trying the same tactics as they have in the past, however this time there is much less legitimacy to their claims.

Unlike Iraq’s Saddam Hussein and Libya’s Gaddafi, Syria’s leader cannot be easily demonized in the corrupt Western press. Unlike Saddam, Assad has never committed war crimes either against a minority in his country or a sovereign state. As a result, there is substantial and committed international support for his leadership and the current Syrian government.

Jordan destroys 2 Syrian border postsWhat I can’t wrap my head around is why Jordan is now joining the fray on the side of the West, along with Turkey’s escalation of the hostilities and conflict. What is even more appalling is the fact that the Syrian rebels consists of mostly foreign influences and even members of al-Qaeda, but the West still supports their actions; thereby supporting terrorism and war crimes.


War with Syria beginning soon

Syrian rebels Al QaedaThe ongoing threat of war with Syria gets closer and closer with every day that goes by. War with Iran it seems is going to be kicked off with a war military intervention in Syria. Iran and Syria have a mutual defense pact which is dangerously close to being triggered, and could have very terrible consequences.
The destabilization of Syria is being propagandized in the media as the native freedom fighting rebels are trying to oust the evil regime leader Assad. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, most (if not all of the rebels) are not even Syrian! In fact, some of them are reportedly al-Quaeda, or western (backed) mercenaries. There are numerous sources claiming the rebels are the ones engaged in the humanitarian crisis that is going on. The U.S. hasn’t ruled out no-fly zones either. This sounds a lot like the Libyan fiasco from not too long ago.
Ever since the Turkish fighter jet was shot down over Syrian airspace, tensions between the two countries have grown colder. Turkey has setup various refugee camps along their border with Syria, and have amassed troops along the border. In addition to this, they are now allegedly smuggling in weapons for the insurgents in ambulances.  The U.S. has also declared that supporting the Syrian rebels is acceptable policy, even though there are al-Quaeda elements within the rebel resistance.
Iran Nuclear Program

All this time, Israel has been screaming for a war on Iran, claiming Iran wants to destroy Israel, and is pursuing nuclear weapons to that purpose. For this reason, the U.N. has imposed various sanctions on Iran. Sanctions are a form of economic warfare and rarely (if ever) help to avoid war; in fact, quite the opposite. Despite the aggravations and provocations by the U.S. and Israel, Iran hasn’t given them the war they want. Israel has already said they don’t feel they need to warn the U.S. of any actions it may unilateraly take against Iran and are now mulling over military action by this fall, and probably before the elections this November. Israel continues to take this stance even though the IAEA, the CIA, and even Israel’s Mossad has confirmed that Iran is not working toward nuclear weapons. The U.S. has just said again that they believe Iran is not on the verge of building a nuclear weapon.

There will be a war with Iran, and more than likely it will begin in Syria. The only unknown at this point is when will hostilities officially begin? How long until Russia or China get involved?
