Syria: The Obama Conviction

4564543534534Russia and Vladimir Putin did not start Arab Spring. Russia and Vladimir Putin did not start the Syria carnage we see today. The United States of America, Britain, the NATO pact, the Saudis and Qatar, and Israel were in the driver’s seat in all this. What’s amazing for many onlookers is how undisputedly exact these facts are, and how obtuse and unaffected people are in knowing. That the UN and other international oversight has not acted appropriately. This is the biggest crime against humanity since the holocaust.

I awoke this morning to an RT story about a Syrian parent being forced to watch his son being beheaded in front of his eyes. A man named Yassar was the subject, a father who has now lost 3 of 4 sons in America’s proxy war for Syria. Yes, the Syria carnage is all about the overthrow of Israel’s closest and most hated enemy. This chaotic region’s reconstruct is all about US strategic reach and global resources remaining. That’s it, and everyone who knows anything knows I speak the truth. You don’t have to scan WikiLeaks Hillary Clinton cables to find out the United States planned and orchestrated the overthrow of Assad, but you can.

The Arab Spring, and especially Syria, will go down in the annual of human endeavor as a footnote to how war and carnage feed capitalism and the power hungry elites. Within this footnote future historians will not discover a WikiLeaks or Edward Snowden revelation on Putin not Russia, for there is no such revelation to be had. All anyone on the side of US hegemony has to show, are rumors and concocted reviling against the charismatic pragmatist, the former KGB man who tried to transform Russia. You can read in the notorious Panama Papers who somebody who knows Putin “may” have stashed some money in Panama. The multitude of western billionaires editorialize Vladimir Putin as the world’s most vile criminal. But not one shred of proof emerges the man did anything wrong. He “probably” had this secret agent killed, he “may have” ordered an airplane shot down, Putin has been “likely” to invade some borderland 100 times, but Nada, Nyet, Nimic, Nothing of the sort took place. Don’t take my word, research to find the proof. Proof Russia did anything wrong simply does not exist. How amazing is that?

When the United States of America invaded Iraq on the premise of Saddam Hussein’s alleged possession of horrific weapons of mass destruction, America was guilty of an act of unprovoked war. The reader must come to terms with this. The nation that has professed democracy and freedom to the world since its inauguration attacked and took over a sovereign nation that had absolutely no power to endanger Americans at home. Weapons of mass destruction did not exist in Iraq’s arsenal, and the Bush administration could not even plant some on Iraqi soil to indemnify the lie. And this “lie” did not originate with the Bush administration, nor even the Bill Clinton administration before. However, the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists or “AUMF” was made law on 14 September 2001, and it did permit George W. Bush the junior to proceed with final “crusade” to take over the Middle East. Looking at all that has happened, with eyes wide open, it is easy to certify this as true. Israel and the United States are in effect, the only participants in this world war unaffected by the carnage. Think about this.

Millions of people in Syria are affected, Syria will never again be the country it once was. Neither will Tunisia, Libya, Lebanon, Yemen, Sudan, or a host of other “victim” countries reap progress in the near future, all because of an American hell storm supported by the British bankers and elitists who once raped these lands. The facts, the devastating reality of the Middle East is more horrendous than any novel plot. If Satan himself had commanded the carnage to begin, the end result could not have been more devastating. I cannot, nor should I, be less emphatic here.

Vladimir Putin did something momentous back on September 11th, 2013. The date was chosen for effect, when the Russian president wrote an Op-Ed for The New York Times. For the reader here, please stop and think about what Putin did, when he reached out directly to the American people. There is no precedent in history, that I can think of. “A Plea for Caution From Russia” was an attempt to forestall an imminent invasion of Syria by the Obama administration. In typically non-creative style, it was the Obama-Clinton foreign policy mandate to use weapons of mass destruction once again, in order to ceremoniously invade yet another enemy of Israel. And I include Israel because everyone knows who really stands behind. Watching the Middle East unravel, seeing the children burn, I imagine the character of all evil genius perpetrators. In a city set afire by arsonists, only one house stands untouched. If the Middle East were Rome, Israel would be Nero. This is clear in the geographer’s mind. Let me quote you a paragraph from Mr. Putin’s warning via the NYT:

“The potential strike by the United States against Syria, despite strong opposition from many countries and major political and religious leaders, including the pope, will result in more innocent victims and escalation, potentially spreading the conflict far beyond Syria’s borders. A strike would increase violence and unleash a new wave of terrorism. It could undermine multilateral efforts to resolve the Iranian nuclear problem and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and further destabilize the Middle East and North Africa. It could throw the entire system of international law and order out of balance.”

The appeal to Americans worked my friends, but only for a few days. President Assad agreed to a Putin orchestrated compromise, and Syria’s stockpiles of chemical weapons were destroyed. But Barack Obama and NATO went forward anyhow, only asymmetrically. The desire to “win” Damascus at any cost, it soon became apparent. The sanctions and economic war the west leveled on Syria since 2006, it soon became support for an internal insurgency manned by jihadist mercenaries. The long and short being, the American alliance (Israel cabal) hired, trained, paid, and commanded a horde of killers in Syria and Northern Iraq. Putin outlined this in 2013, for all the world to see, and his predictions for disaster came to pass, every one. He further codified US policy and the world’s general view too:

“Millions around the world increasingly see America not as a model of democracy but as relying solely on brute force, cobbling coalitions together under the slogan `you’re either with us or against us`.”

Finally, the Obama administration forged forward, both covertly and overtly, using the CIA and jihadist groups, and the unified Central Command, in order to ensure Assad’s demise. This assertion is irrefutable, unarguable, absolute, as we see in the evidence now. Vladimir Putin and Russia did not arm the Al Qaeda and ultimately ISIL in the Levant, Obama, the Europeans, the Saudis and Turkey, and Israel supplied all that was needed. With British oil companies and investment magnates fueling ISIL with illegal oil from Kurdistan, it was only Putin’s air forces attacks on ISIL oil tankers that revealed the subterfuge. Central Command was and is flying air cover for ISIL. The Russian Ministry of Defense filmed the destruction of ISIL’s money train. The New York Times did not cue up on this. No western media did. This shows the malignant disease that has become free press. An independent journalist has to donate intelligence, to fend off the sold out lies of the criminal cadre. What a shambles.

Those who cannot see or are confused, may still believe our world is in equilibrium. Normalcy may be your daily reality, at least according to the ongoing newsreel. In America the focus seems frozen. Partisan politics, however comical or tragic the candidates may be, reveals the fanaticism of choosing celebrity as leadership. Trump or Clinton, Republican or Democrat, if I were Hitler or Mussolini, America would be the easiest fascist empire to conquer mentally. “Give them more of what they want”, this would be my dictate to the oligarchy agents. And then I would proclaim “See, God willed it!” We are on the doorstep of Armageddon, and all of Sodom revels. Knowing full well the potential consequences of his actions, Barack Obama forged forward for the power elite. And for Israel he emptied the full gas can onto the Arab world. This is how historians will inscribe, the root causes of World War III. That is, should the forces of good prevail. As we all know, history is written by the victors. For those of you who still resist these truths, I leave you with America’s Syria facts.

  • In 1956 the NSA and CIA met in Damascus to discuss a US-backed ‘anticommunist’ takeover of the country. The plan was code named Operation Straggle – this is historic fact.

  • In 1957 Operation Wappen was orchestrated by Allen Dulles for the overthrow of Syria’s government. Bribes to Syria’s military establishment were documented – this is historic fact.

  • Also in 1957, British MI6 and the CIA plotted the assassination of top Syrian officials in what became known as the  “Preferred Plan” – this is historical fact.
  • In 1967, as tensions between Arab countries and Israel boiled, the Israelis launched a preemptive air strike against Egypt’s air forces destroying opposing forces’ air superiority. The CIA and MI6 had predicted Israel could win with a preemptive attack. This is historical fact.
  • The 1973 Yom Kippur War saw the crucible of US, European, Soviet, Arab and Israeli policy and intelligence spiked. As the Arabs led an attack on Israel, so too the CIA and US State Department played a deadly game of cat and mouse. The OPEC Oil Embargo of the same time further cemented ongoing crisis. This is historical fact.
  • In 1983, then President Assad’s treaty with the Soviets prompted the CIA to aid the Muslim Brotherhood in their uprisings. This is historical fact.
  • From 2001 to 2003, the Bush administration and the CIA used Syria for the illegal detention and torture of “ghost detainees” in an operation called “Extraordinary Rendition” – this too is historical fact.
  • On Sunday, 26 October 2008, the CIA conducted a paramilitary raid on the town of Sukkariyeh in eastern Syria. The raid involved two dozen U.S. commandos in specially equipped Black Hawk helicopters. Since then the US has acknowledge other raids inside Syria.
  • US Special Activities Division teams have been deployed in Syria since 2006. This is historical fact as revealed by WikiLeaks.

Today US Central Command tries to dictate the war on ISIL by demanding Russia and sovereign Syria stand down on bombing jihadist forces with US Special Forces advisers embedded. The generals in charge of the alleged US terror effort, have warned Russia and Assad aircraft will be attacked in “self defense” of these invisible forces the Obama administration only reluctantly announced the existence of. The fact is, the US has supported Al Qaeda and its affiliated organizations for almost half a century since the heyday of the Soviet Afghan war. Obama and the previous seven US presidents were not only aware of the catastrophe the US has been involved in, but they were all complicit in helping Israel destroy any opposing external threat. This is the reality, it is incontrovertible, and the world needs to understand it if there is ever to be peace. Barack Obama is the chief executive of an organization complicit in destroying any chance of peace and prosperity for billions of human beings. And this my friends, is also incontrovertible.

As for Vladimir Putin and Russia, the world can only really know his true intentions if there is peace. If Russia’s frontiers are not assailed, if Russophobes are for once bridled, and if old scars can be left to heal, only then can we truly understand the other side of this mess. No one is to blame for the Syria catastrophe beyond Tel Aviv, Washington, and London. I submit this to you as a coming historical fact.
