“We don’t have a basis, our lawyers tell us, unless we have a UN Security Council Resolution,  which the Russians can veto or the Chinese, or unless we are under attack, by the folks there, or unless we are invited in.

Russia is invited in by the legitimate regime–well it’s illegitimate in our mind–but by the regime. And so they were invited in and we’re not invited in. We’re flying in airspace there where they can turn on the air defense and we have a very different scene. The only reason they’re letting us fly is because we’re going after ISIL. If we were going after Assad, those air defenses, we’d have to take out all the air defenses, and we don’t have a legal justification, frankly for doing that, unless we stretch it way beyond the law, on a humanitarian basis. Which some people argue we should, by the way. But so far American legal theory has not gone into the so-called “right to protect.”

‘Never mind the US, Russia’s the one losing patience over Syria ceasefire chaos’ – Chief of Staff

This follows the news that Washington has attempted to protect terror group AL NUSRAH FRONT by keeping its so-called “moderate” terrorists in the same locations, using them as human shields to protect AL QAEDA terrorists from aerial bombing.

Folks, this is what your “leaders” are actually doing in Syria today.

The Russian military says Washington still won’t provide a list of groups it considers terrorist, allowing jihadists to regroup and escape Russian-led air raids on their positions, the head of the Russian General Staff said.

Perhaps “intelligence” and “fraud” should be considered synonyms now, at least when it comes to war pretexts, war propaganda.

The truth about Venezuela: a revolt of the well-off

Major media outlets have already reported that Venezuela’s poor have not joined the right-wing opposition protests, but that is an understatement: it’s not just the poor who are abstaining – in Caracas, it’s almost everyone outside of a few rich areas like Altamira, where small groups of protesters engage in nightly battles with security forces, throwing rocks and firebombs and running from tear gas.

Walking from the working-class neighborhood of Sabana Grande to the city center, there was no sign that Venezuela is in the grip of a “crisis” that requires intervention from the Organization of American States (OAS), no matter what John Kerry tells you. The metro also ran very well, although I couldn’t get off at Alta Mira station, where the rebels had set up their base of operations until their eviction this week.

After a US supported Neo-Nazi coup d’etat in Ukraine, the US is now threatening to escalate the conflict with Russia if the people of Crimea vote to secede from Ukraine this Sunday.

“There will be a response of some kind to the referendum itself,” Kerry said. “If there is no sign [from Russia] of any capacity to respond to this issue ... there will be a very serious series of steps on Monday.”

John Kerry: Russia has until Monday to reverse course in Ukraine

Russia has drawn the line:

Russian Troops Mass at Border With Ukraine

Of course the obvious: that Ukraine has no legitimate government at all right now thanks to a fascist coup covertly sponsored by the West, does not get stated in the US corporate media.

Does Kerry Think Al-Qaeda is a Human Rights Organization?

The problem relates to Alkarama, a self-described human rights organization whose reporting the State Department, Human Rights Watch, and Amnesty International have uncritically incorporated into their reporting.  The problem is that the founder of Alkarama, according to the U.S. Treasury Department, is also an al-Qaeda financier.

Not just Kerry, either: Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International use bogus information.

The Syrian terror army, supported by the Western alliance, has given the finger to the handpicked puppets chosen to represent them.

NY Times:

“…a collection of some of the country’s most powerful rebel groups publicly abandoned the opposition’s political leaders, casting their lot with an affiliate of Al Qaeda.”

Obama’s charade has been torpedoed by his own radical shock troops, paid for and assembled by intelligence services and the Saudis — particularly Bandar bin Sultan.  Now that they won’t get their US bombing campaign, they are no longer pretending to be John Kerry’s “moderates.”

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.”
