The Syrian war is such a universal mess it is completely unfathomable why. The list of countries bombing Syria includes: US, UK, Germany, France, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Iraq, Qatar, Belgium, Bahrain, Australia, Canada, Netherlands, Italy, Turkey, and UAE. And yet – with all that in play – ISIS, comprised of about 100,000 fighters by best guess, has actually – grown…
Five years later, a country is completely destroyed, but ISIS and al Qaeda seem to be doing just fine. What kind of military intelligence is conducting this massive catastrophe? In WWII, Hitler’s army was comprised of over 18 million. In the Gulf War against Iraq we fought against 650,000 troops and it lasted one month.
We have fake videos showing faked casualties, faked attacks, and apparently a complete inability to determine who is doing what where because we don’t seem to know who is bombing whom at any given time and so the rhetoric is US vs Assad.
Adding to the confusion, weapons are being sold indiscriminately to all related countries by both the US and Russia. It used to be that we could verify who was doing what via satellite imagery, but those too have been doctored to present false information. So we turned to witnesses on the ground. But they have no factual bearing either as each side presents their propaganda witness.
Recently the US press has begun a campaign of parading previous Syrian victims as their source of information. Hillary capitalized on this propaganda method during her campaign, and the media have recently jumped osn the proverbial bandwagon creating chemical weapon victims. One, used to work for the Clinton Global Initiative… and the other one claims to have escaped after the August 2013 chemical weapon attack, only to show up in the US in September 2013 and start a Twitter account in English…
It’s interesting to note who is retweeted on this Twitter account of Mr. Kassem Eid. It would include Kenneth Roth of Human Rights Watch, a George Soros organization. There is Liz Sly of the Washington Post. The Daily Beast who has on it’s board Chelsea Clinton. The Syrian Network For Human Rights, a UK based organization that was an offshoot of the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights, both one man shows located in the UK. And the very shadowy Eliot Higgins or Bellingcat also from the UK , a stay at home dad married to a Turkish woman who suddenly rose to fame as a weapons analyst…
The information being parlayed is always the same, makes statements of fact without any corroborating evidence, and is continually restated, reTweeted, rehashed by the mainstream media. The idea being if you say it enough, if multiple sources say the same thing – then it must be factual and evidence is no longer necessary.
Now we have Fox News using the fact checker of The Washington Post against Rice, and the mire is so thick we cannot possibly know what is fact or fiction. It is no different than asking Hillary who’s on first in Benghazi! All it proves is that Rice is going down and she is the Democrat’s scapegoat.
We also now know that the riff between Bannon and Kushner was about Syria. Kushner won – and Syria was bombed without any verifiable evidence other than a statement made by the White Helmets, an organization created in and funded by the UK that ultimately shifted its funding to the US taxpayers. There are photos and videos linking them to complicity with al-Nusra. For their propaganda, they use the Aleppo Media Center to provide ‘pictures’ for release to US and UK media. The authenticity of these photos is questionable…at best. And certainly completely and openly biased.
Tillerson blaming Russia for their failure to eliminate the chemical weapons in Syria is childish. The OPCW, a Norwegian organization, was tasked with the elimination. They work in cooperation with the UN. It’s latest news brief has declared that they are ‘investigating the claim of chemical weapons use in Syria’. Below is what the OPCW stated in 2016 with regard to the continued use of chemical weapons:
“At a time when the likelihood of states using chemical weapons has become distant, non-state actors – in Syria and Iraq – have not only sought to acquire such weapons, but have also used them. What this means is that chemical terrorism is no longer a theoretical proposition or even imminent threat, but a stark reality. It is also a reality that could affect many more of us across the globe over coming years as foreign fighters return to their homelands with experiences gained in Syria and Iraq.”
There are six countries known to house stashes of chemical weapons: US, Russia, Egypt, Israel, North Korea and South Sudan. However, what the OPCW acknowledges is that ‘non-state actors’, as in terrorists, have stockpiles that cannot be contained. Recklessness was the Democrat and Republican war hawks agenda, The People are more concerned about the Saudi’s than Assad where Sharia Law, beheadings, human rights violations, war mongering in Yemen, ethnic cleansing, and genocide are all tolerated for some reason… could it be The Swamp back-scratching???
