Materials Implicating Syrian Government in Chemical Attack Prepared Before Incident – Russia

Moscow continues to monitor closely the event surrounding the“alleged” chemical attack near Damascus, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Aleksandr Lukashevich, said in a statement.

“We’re getting more new evidence that this criminal act was of a provocative nature,” he stressed. “In particular, there are reports circulating on the Internet, in particular that the materials of the incident and accusations against government troops had been posted for several hours before the so-called attack. Thus, it was a pre-planned action.”

The Damascus chemical attack accusations indicate the launch of “another anti-Syrian propaganda wave” and, in this context, the calls on the UN Security Council to immediately use force in Syria “heard from some EU capitals” are “unacceptable”, Lukashevich said.

Washington’s favorite terrorists are likely behind this latest massacre, again.   Previously the UN found that “opposition” insurgents had used gas in Syria, and other members of the Syrian “opposition” were arrested in Turkey in possession of Sarin nerve gas.  This transparent false flag provocation has failed repeatedly, and yet civilians keep dying by the hundreds in this foreign-sponsored pet project of Washington, London, Paris, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, et al.

Hey, if you ever wonder why “they,” as in most of the rest of the world “hates us,” well here ya go.  Scahill’s Dirty Wars is getting press.

Business Insider:

“Rumsfeld worked to make sure that the unit was “unrestrained and unaccountable to anyone except him, Cheney, and the president” while Cheney began going to JSOC headquarters at Fort Bragg in North Carolina to give direct action orders.”

UPDATE

Douglas Valentine pointed out problems with Scahill, his foundation funded backers and the info he doesn’t release (concerning CIA).

Then something trutly absurd happened, straight from Scahill’s own Twitter:

Jeremy Scahill Bullies Mother Agnes!

Arms Airlift to Syria Rebels Expands, With Aid From C.I.A.

US Doubles Aid To Syrian Rebels, Who Want More

“Instead, the Obama administration’s pledged to provide an additional $123 million in aid, which may include for the first time armored vehicles, body armor, night vision goggles and other defensive military supplies.”

Another $123M tax money, while schools fold.  Seniors are being denied food and medicine.  Obama is the representative of the Military-Industrial-Crony-Capital-Corporate sector.  He does not give a damn about Americans, nor Syrians.

Syria’s so-called “rebels” are majority Al-Qaeda connected “Al Nusra Brigade.”  Their atrocities have killed tens of thousands of civilians.  We are living Orwell’s worst nightmare.  Don’t beleve me?  How about a Catholic Church official from Syria?

“It’s not a question of promoting democracy or pluralism as the West wants us to understand of its policies. This is a lie, this is hypocrisy,Syriac Patriarch Ignatius Joseph III Younan told Catholic News Service.

Western nations did not heed warnings and so “bear responsibility for what is happening in Syria.”

“We were warning all those involved, the countries in the region and in the West — that means the United States and some of the European Union countries, like the United Kingdom and France — that this kind of violence would lead to chaos and the chaos to a civil war,” Patriarch Younan said. “And at that time, two years ago, they chose not to believe that.”

Yes America.  Your willful, criminal ignorance kills thousands around the world.  You’re supposed to keep checks on your government.  That’s called “democracy.”

The Guardian today posted an investigation and a documentary film on the architects of the “Salvador Option” and the death squads of Iraq. Col. James Steele and Gen. David Petraus, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Chency, the names are expected but for Steele. The documentary highlights Steele’s atrocities from Vietnam through Central America on his way to Baghdad.

From El Salvador to Iraq: Washington’s man behind brutal police squads


Numerous witnesses are on the record. I have one complaint, however, and that is a bogus civilian casualty count mentioned near the beginning of the film. A total of 130,000 Iraqis is stated as some kind of fact with no discussion or examination. This is likely the US military’s own body count; ironically from an invading force that bragged “we don’t do body counts” (Gen. Tommy Franks).

Today’s history lesson.

What I’ve Learned About US Foreign Policy(Film Website)

Professor Michel Chossudovsky has a new article entitled, Death Squads in Iraq and Syria. The Historical Roots of US-NATO’s Covert War on Syria.  Some of these previous “death squads” can be seen in the above documentary.  This is essential modern history that every American should already know like the back of his/her hand, and yet is nowhere to be found in US high school history classes.  …And that, my friends, is exactly what’s wrong with America.
