Al Qaeda in Syria now called  Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham.
What’s In A Name? U.S. Takes Syria’s Al-Qaeda Off Terror Watchlists

As CBC noted, “For the U.S. to designate HTS now would mean acknowledging that it supplied sophisticated weapons, including TOW anti-tank missiles, to ‘terrorists,’ and draw attention to the fact that the U.S. continues to arm Islamist militias in Syria.”

This is just the latest attempt by al-Nusra to rebrand itself as a “moderate” group, as it has used its commitment to being “anti-ISIS” and “anti-Assad” in order to convince the U.S. and its allies to arm them. Al-Nusra has been described by mainstream media as a “moderate opposition” group fighting against the embattled government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Syrian Rebels Caught in ‘False-Flag’ Kidnapping

Short version: GPS probably saved that guy’s life. NBC knew it was the Free Syrian Army Sunni kidnapping gang from the start, but they went along with the propaganda ruse to blame the Assad government.

I wrote, almost three years ago, how Syrian rebels engaged in false flag attacks and fabricated propaganda.

Syria: The First Casualty…

The “Houla Massacre” was the first major false flag event to make news around the world, and was used as a pretext for western governments to kick out Syria’s ambassadors, in a staged farce.

“Essentially, a small hamlet in Syria was invaded by “up to 700” insurgent fighters. They attacked three government check posts in a lengthy battle, where the army returned artillery fire. A contingent of these terrorists then went house to house seeking out political opponents and massacred the entire families of those who were still loyal to the government or who had converted from Sunni to Shiite Islam.

“When the rebels seized the lower checkpoint in the center of town… they began to sweep all the families loyal to the authorities in neighboring houses, including the elderly, women and children. Several families of the Al-Sayed were killed, including 20 young children and the family of the Abdul Razak. Many of those killed were ‘guilty’ of the fact that they dared to change from Sunnis to Shiites.”

They collected bodies and claimed that the victims were killed by army shelling, which was obviously not consistent with forensic analysis, nor with reality.

The German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) confirmed this Russian account of the Houla atrocities on June 7th. The murdered families are named and described in more detail.

“Several dozen members of a family were slaughtered, which had converted from Sunni to Shia Islam. Members of the Shomaliya, an Alawi family, were also killed, as was the family of a Sunni member of the Syrian parliament who is regarded as a collaborator.” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Abermals Massaker in Syrien, 6/7/2012; Translation)

Previously German newspaper Der Spiegel published an interview with the Syrian rebels’ executioner and his death squad named the “burial brigade.”

“According to Abu Rami, Hussein’s burial brigade has put between 200 and 250 traitors to death since the beginning of the uprising.” (Der Spiegel, An Executioner for Syria’s Rebels Tells His Story, 3/29/2012)”

SYRIA-CONFLICT-KURDS

The “mistakes were made” card only plays so many times. Pretty soon it starts looking like a strategy, not an error.

American aircraft dropped weapons to ISIS, says MP

“This incident is continuously happening and has also occurred in some other regions.”

“The U.S. is trying to obtain more benefits and privileges from the government to set military bases in Iraq,” Ghraoui said.

Remember: “Al Nusra” has been on the US State Department’s terrorist list for years, and has been responsible for sarin gas attacks on civilians inside Syria.

Spies Warned White House: Don’t Hit Al Qaeda in Syria

The rationale / excuse:

U.S. intelligence officials warned that any additional American attacks against al Nusra could drive a wedge between the group and their erstwhile allies in the American-backed, moderate opposition.

The larger context is this covert illegal war crime against the government of Syria: created, sponsored, armed and trained by the USA and its Gulf dictator partners. This illegal proxy war complicates the world, understandably, and those responsible should simply be brought before a war crimes tribunal for Crimes Against the Peace and the deaths of a quarter of a million people. Hence the larger deception and utter farce that is this Syria imbroglio.

The article is chock full of the strains of imperial warmongers, the same scum of the planet who created the situation in the first place. Welcome to hell.

Terrorism supporter Erdogan lashes out at US vice president Joe Biden for spilling the beans.

Turkish president lashes out at Joe Biden over ISIS comments

“If Biden told these words, then he will be history to me. I never uttered such remarks,” Turkish daily Hurriyet cites Erdogan as saying.

Speaking back on his time as prime minister, Erdogan said his government had not provided “even the smallest amount of support” to the IS or any other terrorist organization.

“Nobody can prove it. Foreign fighters never crossed from Turkey to Syria. There were people coming to Turkey as tourists and went to Syria, but nobody can suggest that they were armed while crossing the border,” Erdoğan said.

“I view [Biden’s remarks] with regret. I never admitted any mistake, nor did we tell them that they ‘were right’ during my visit to the US. If Mr. Biden uttered these remarks at Harvard, he should apologize. I’m saying this clearly. And we won’t accept slender, indirect explanations,” Erdogan said.

Iraq crisis: How Saudi Arabia helped Isis take over the north of the country

“Saudi Arabia has created a Frankenstein’s monster over which it is rapidly losing control. The same is true of its allies such as Turkey which has been a vital back-base for Isis and Jabhat al-Nusra by keeping the 510-mile-long Turkish-Syrian border open. As Kurdish-held border crossings fall to Isis, Turkey will find it has a new neighbour of extraordinary violence, and one deeply ungrateful for past favours from the Turkish intelligence service.”

Article doesn’t provide much new reporting. It does, however, nicely tie Hillary Clinton, then Secretary of State, to Treason, covering up Saudi state support for Al Qaeda:

“Saudi sympathy for anti-Shia “militancy” is identified in leaked US official documents. The then US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wrote in December 2009 in a cable released by Wikileaks that “Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qa’ida, the Taliban, LeT [Lashkar-e-Taiba in Pakistan] and other terrorist groups.” She said that, in so far as Saudi Arabia did act against al-Qa’ida, it was as a domestic threat and not because of its activities abroad. This policy may now be changing with the dismissal of Prince Bandar as head of intelligence this year. But the change is very recent, still ambivalent and may be too late: it was only last week that a Saudi prince said he would no longer fund a satellite television station notorious for its anti-Shia bias based in Egypt.”

Prince Bandar is a central figure in this ISIS movement to wage a war of annihilation against the Shia and to create a caliphate across Asia. The US sees this as wonderful, as the main Shia stronghold is, of course, Iran.

Turkey’s role has been different but no less significant than Saudi Arabia’s in aiding Isis and other jihadi groups. Its most important action has been to keep open its 510-mile border with Syria. This gave Isis, al-Nusra and other opposition groups a safe rear base from which to bring in men and weapons. The border crossing points have been the most contested places during the rebels’ ‘civil war within the civil war’. Most foreign jihadis have crossed Turkey on their way to Syria and Iraq. Precise figures are difficult to come by, but Morocco’s Interior Ministry said recently that 1122 Moroccan jihadists have entered Syria, including nine hundred who went in 2013, two hundred of whom were killed. Iraqi security suspects that Turkish military intelligence may have been heavily involved in aiding Isis when it was reconstituting itself in 2011. Reports from the Turkish border say Isis is no longer welcome, but with weapons taken from the Iraqi army and the seizure of Syrian oil and gasfields, it no longer needs so much outside help.

 Of course I would disagree with the title of this article, by Patrick Cockburn:

The rise of Isis is the ultimate disaster for the US, Britain and their allies who invaded Iraq

Ultimate disaster for the US? Bullshit. This has been their outright strategy since 2006:

The Redirection

It’s a disaster for the little people who live there, not for the US or Britain who were kicked out of Iraq by the Iran-friendly Maliki regime. Now they are destroying Maliki, and the “Caliphate” seeks to destroy Iran and Shia generally. This sort of hyperbolic gibberish, from Patrick Cockburn, makes me doubt his sincerity sometimes.

ISIS

 

Why are America’s Allies funding ISIS in Iraq?

 

America has tolerated/encouraged these Jihadi militias in order to destroy Syria. Now it is out of hand and rampaging across Asia.

Saudis Agree to Provide Syrian Rebels With Mobile Antiaircraft Missiles

Most of the weapons end up in the hands of radical Sunni Jihadi terrorist brigades.  Sleep tight tonight.  The US partnership with Saudi Arabia leads naturally to this.  Has anyone had enough?

 

The atrocities of Syria are directly the result of Western aggression and aid to Sunni terrorists. These terror networks, connected to Al Qaeda, are being armed by proxy through Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, among others. This crime against humanity will not stop until western publics wake the fuck up.
