Is America Helping Al Qaeda Take Over Syria?

ADDITIONAL:
The “Arab Spring”

With democratic uprisings beginning in Arab countries early in 2011, violence came to Syria almost immediately in March of that year.  Clashes killed multiple police officers as well as demonstrators.

Also in the first half of 2011, at the start of the “Arab Spring,” Agence France Presse reported that State Dept. official Michael Posner admitted:

“The US … has budgeted $50 million in the last two years to develop new technologies to help activists protect themselves from arrest and prosecution by authoritarian governments.  And it has organized training sessions for 5,000 activists … A session held in the Middle East about six weeks ago gathered activists from Tunisia, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon who returned to their countries with the aim of training their colleagues there.”

By August of 2011, Israeli intelligence publication DebkaFile claimed:

“NATO plans to send large quantities of anti-tank and anti-air rockets, mortars and heavy machine guns to the Syrian rebels”

The Turkish Connection

Nato member Turkey has supported the Syrian opposition rebels from the beginning.  As the BBC described it, “The Turkish government has been a key supporter of the Syrian opposition, and has allowed rebels as well as refugees onto its territory.”

A phone log appeared on the White House website that is jolting in its implications.  On August 7th, the Prime Minister of Turkey, Recep Erdogan, called Barack Obama for a chat.  In the wake of reported mass killings and kidnappings of Syrian Kurds by Al Nusra rebels, the topic of “extremists in Syria” was broached.

“The President and Prime Minister discussed the danger of foreign extremists in Syria and agreed on the importance of supporting a unified and inclusive Syrian opposition.”

This seemingly banal summary indicates Obama’s explicit support for the jihadi factions inside Syria, which potentially comprise half of the opposition forces on the ground, and are widely regarded as the more effective half.

Turkey has allowed the Syrian Al Nusra terrorists to pour across the border into Syria and then to return to safe haven. Turkey’s former Deputy Prime Minister recently accused Erdogan of supplying “heavy weapons” to the Al Nusra terrorists.

“The Erdogan government has sent a large volume of heavy weapons to the terrorist group, the al-Nusra Front, affiliated to the al-Qaeda in Syria and this is while even the US has listed the al-Nusra as a terrorist group.”

Not everything in this grand opera is what it appears to be.  War plans similar to what we’re witnessing on the ground today were developed by the Pentagon back in 1957.  The Syria plan called for US and British covert intelligence assistance to arm and support indigenous resistance movements.  Sabotage was a main feature as was a “Free Syria Committee” to stand against the Soviet backed regime.

While the US State Department blacklisted Al Nusra in December of 2012, the British waited an additional seven months until July19th, for some unknown reason.  Some angry British lawmakers finally named Syrian terrorism, “the most worrying emerging terrorist threat to the U.K. and the West.”

“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”

–Adolf Hitler

The propaganda nation has ascended, and Americans remain profoundly ignorant of what it is their empire does around the world.  They largely believe what they are told by authority figures, even if what they are told makes no logical sense.  Even if what they are told contradicts the evidence in front of their faces.  Even if the liars have clear motives for lying to them.  Even if similar situations floated right past the liars in the past without comment, clear hypocrisy.

I have called such pathetic ignorance criminal, naming a new category of misdemeanor, criminal ignorance.  In a democracy the citizens are responsible for informing themselves about critically-important situations, and not relying on one side’s baseless claims.  Sitting back and being told what to think by the government or by the profit-driven media is not informing one’s self.  The responsibility of citizens, in a democratic republic, is to sort the liars from the truth tellers.  When citizens shirk this responsibility they are derelict in their civic duties, as they cannot make sound, rational decisions.  Thus the decisions they do make: giving support, voting, influencing others, are negligent, reckless, unsound and should be called out.  That is criminal ignorance.

In America far too much of the public is criminally ignorant about most important issues, including war and peace.  So they are ripe for the Big Lie, the technique of Hitler, which is now routinely executed by US politicians.

2013_0906_kerry_syriaUS Propaganda Minister John F. Kerry

One such Big Lie is the Obama Jihad against Bashar al Assad, claiming that Assad used chemical weapons on August 21 and a whole lot of other times previously.  No evidence has ever come out to connect the Syrian military to any gas attack, and yet every single instance is blamed on Assad by the propaganda wing of the insurgents, and then these accusations are dutifully repeated by Western media and Western government officials.

What evidence has emerged is that the Al Nusra terrorist groups in Syria have used Sarin gas, repeatedly.  Quite a different narrative.

The Big Lie depends also on censoring out the other side.  So when UN Investigator Carla del Ponte tells the world that it was the opposition rebels and not the Syrian government this cannot be mentioned by the Big Liars.  This evidence is not permitted to be relayed to the masses.  This crucial evidence – if one is actually concerned about civilian deaths – passes by as if it never happened.  The Big Liars are exposed by what they will not say, as well as what they do say.

“…[T]hus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.  It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.”
Mein Kampf, vol. I, ch. X

An immoral foreign policy depends upon deception.  Citizens cannot know that they are responsible for atrocities half a world away, or else they might act on this knowledge.  As the masses are so willingly ignorant, this is not difficult to achieve as long as the press agrees to limit its sources and revelations.

This is academic.  It is a fait accompli, and has been the status quo for the entire modern age.  See Manufacturing Consent if you’re unfamiliar with the way corporate media churns out one-sided foreign policy “news.”

The game is set.  Only the players and the skirmishes change.  The goal of empire is to expand empire and to take more profit from outside, thus enabling it to maintain its position of global domination and to reward those who are favorable to its agenda.  It is a self-perpetuating juggernaut that grows out of control and eventually destroys itself by overreaching.  That’s how history has shown the evolution to be.  Destruction can be slow or rapid.  In the nuclear age, it can come in minutes.  It’s a high-stakes game this war and peace.  Those who see themselves as invincible will overreach faster and in more spectacular fashion.  While Hitler lied himself into a massive empire and built a military never before witnessed on earth, even his five-year plans were cut short.

Doubts About Who Is Using Chemical Weapons in Syria

By on Sep 3, 2013

America and its allies appear about to launch a war against Syria. The justification is that the regime of Bashar al-Assad is using chemical weapons against the Syrian people. But a closer look raises doubts about whether Assad is using the weapons, whether the US-backed opposition is using them—or some combination. This is a timely must-read.

“The Obama administration and allies claim, with near certainty, that Bashar al-Assad has used lethal gas on his population. But no credible evidence has emerged to confirm this. Conversely, as the West pushes for approval to bomb the Assad regime, some evidence suggests it may instead be the rebels who are using chemical weapons against other rebels—an extension of ongoing ethnic/religious battles being fought with what one UN inspector characterized as “almost medieval savagery.”  CONTINUED
