Out of the gate – and barely in the first leg of the track and already the media is crying FOUL!
Russia isn’t striking the targets that the US was striking! Uh-oh. Russia isn’t playing by the board game rules! Russia has bombed civilians! Russia wants Assad to remain! Russia…messing with Hillary emails!
And the source for all this “newsworthy news”? Unnamed Sources. And the ambiguous “Syrian Observatory for Human Rights”, a one man show with highly questionable information that some believe comes from UK intelligence feeds.
Given the US, Canada, Australia, the UK, France, and Germany combined have managed to escalate the carnage done by ISIS, they will be the first to cry FOUL when trying to ‘save face’. As governments quickly realize that they may be eating mud if Russia has an impact on ISIS, after their own campaigns succeeded only in creating a destitute country mired in rubble creating an immigration chaos all over Europe, Russia might end up looking like the – good guy. And that is a problem.
To think that Russia would step into the muck and use the exact same tactics and strategies employed by the US for two years that has done virtually ‘nothing’, is rather boldly naïve and wholly lacking of an understanding of military intelligence. It’s a Kenny Rogers euphemism, ‘know when to hold em, know when to fold em, know when to run…’. Holding a hand that has no winning possibility, is tantamount to death in this situation. Russia is holding its own hand – and it looks nothing like the melee that functioned without proper focus in Syria.
Yesterday the media was screaming that Russia was putting troops on the ground, today the media is backtracking that comment. They screamed that Russia was killing CIA backed rebels… oh wait, you mean Al Nusra? Because that’s who the CIA backed. So I suppose, technically it’s not a lie… Today, it isn’t Russia putting troops on the ground but Iran, but wait a minute, Iran has had troops on the ground for some time, so what is this media frenzy about?
It’s about creating a false reality. And its about ridiculously corrupt reporting in which Truth just doesn’t exist any longer.
The media’s illogical logic is to say that Russia is backing Assad… Well, yes, they are, so is Iran, France and the US technically, because you have to pick a side and there are two – Assad or ISIS. Pick one. And since we royally mucked up in arming the bad guys, we are now in the predicament of fighting against our own weapons, and our CIA backed rebels.
Why just a few days ago, France was hailed as a hero for killing 30 14-18 Islamic youth rebels, according to the “Syrian Observatory”. That was the spin. These were the first and only airstrikes France had carried out in Syria. And while US military officials tell us time and again it is impossible to know what specific targets have been destroyed and who on the ground are being killed, somehow this Observatory has a crystal ball that tallies up information within minutes of it happening – and even sometimes before it has happened.
How many Syrians have died so far? The actual number is ‘impossible’ to know for certain. We still can’t say how many died in the Vietnam War or WWII, or the Russian Revolution. Technology won’t give us the answer.
The US comprises 80% of all coalition strikes to date. Civilian casualties are estimated to be from 450 to over 200,000. More than half of all claims that US strikes resulted in any civilian casualties were dismissed as baseless. Phhhyt – gone.
There are now two organizations claiming to have boots on the ground knowledge of every airstrike, every casualty, every name, all knowledge of the events in Syria: Syrian Observatory of Human Rights, and Syrian Network of Human Rights. Both claim to have begun their business as of 2011. Both are based in the UK. The Observatory receives funding from Soros Open Society, the NED (another Soros manufacture), and the BBC World Service Trust. The BBC Trust has come under scrutiny for it’s questionable spending practices. As a charity, it’s funding comes predominantly from the UN, the European Union and Bill Gates.
Despite claims that The Syrian Network of Human Rights has existed since 2011, observance as a source of information was not marketed until sometime in 2013. And while it claims to have dozens of activists and researchers, and hundreds of members, its website names no one. In fact, it picks up its stories from other sites. The founder, Mousab Azzawi, and the onemanshow of the Syrian Observatory, AbdulRahman ( alias for Osama Ali Suleiman), have exchanged fierce barbs each claiming the other is a sham. Abdulrahman, originally of Finnish nationality, was on the board of UK Consulting Centre, LTD for a little over one month in 2008, while Mr. Azzawi is currently listed as this company’s Director. In addition, Azzawi was listed as a Trustee of the Syrian Observatory in 2012, a tangled web indeed!
The UK Consulting Centre LTD. is listed as an adult education and training center with about 12k pounds in assets. I guess it’s not a lucrative business despite profit being their business training model??? Dr. Azzawi is a pathologist. Really? The company has two uniquely different websites offering two distinct services both created in 2013. Neither man would seem to have any background on Syria. No education to qualify them as human rights promoters, and no history prior to 2013. A pathologist training and educating businesses to succeed, is a very odd career path to be sure…
Using these two organizations as our source of information from Syria, when they are obviously disinformation fronts created by the UK intelligence, hardly does justice to journalism, news, or the media, much less the conspiracy of the government involved in disinformation. And for mainstream media outlets to continually use these men as their source of information is a grave voice that distinguishes Puppets from Truth.
