Syria: French Foreign Ministry’s statement on Kasab an attempt to cover up terrorist acts

Armenian_Genocide_Moussawi_Main_pic_1

Damascus, (SANA) Syria slammed the French Foreign Ministry’s statement on the ongoing events in Kasab city, saying it is characteristic of France’s rash and aggressive anti-Syria policies.

The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said the recently-issued French Foreign Ministry’s statement on the unfolding events in Kasab area is an attempt to cover up the acts of armed terrorist groups that have targeted, with Turkish support and firepower, several areas in Lattakia northern countryside and committed grave violations against peaceful civilians there, prompting them to flee to neighboring areas.

The source told SANA that the French Foreign Ministry continues- in its official statements- to cover up terrorist acts and falsify events, which proves the French officials’ involvement in the bloodshed in Syria through financial, military, media and political support to armed terrorist groups.

The source expressed bewilderment at the French government’s condemnation of what it called ”bombarding Kasab” and leveling unfair accusations against the Syrian government, when it should have denounced the acts of terrorist groups there that are directly aided and abetted by the Turkish government.

Among those killed in Kasab are survivors of the Ottomans’ atrocities against them at the beginning of last century, the source added.

“It is a matter of regret that the French government continues to rob the heritage of the French people which is built on the principles of freedom, fraternity and equality, and its disrespect for the UN Charter, international law, the ethical values of political work and the interests of the Syrian and French populations,” the ministry concluded.

L’F-35 made in Italy di Manlio Dinucci

 | ROMA (ITALIA) | 1 APRILE 2014
FRANÇAIS 

JPEG - 20.1 Kb Due posizioni si confrontano nel Pd sulla questione degli F-35. Quella di Roberta Pinotti, ministro della difesa, che dice ai vertici dell’aeronautica di «stare sereni» perché, come ha assicurato il premier Renzi al presidente Obama, l’Italia «non può fare nessun passo indietro» nell’acquisto dei caccia. Quella di Gian Piero Scanu, capogruppo Pd alla commissione Difesa della Camera, che prospetta una riduzione del numero di caccia da acquistare, decisa dal parlamento dopo una «indagine conoscitiva», e assicura che «il presidente degli Stati uniti si è dimostrato affidabile e ha dato l’idea di non voler interferire».

Si dimentica, nel «dibattito», un piccolo particolare: che l’Italia non è un semplice acquirente, ma un importante produttore del caccia F-35. Dopo la firma del primo memorandum d’accordo da parte del governo D’Alema nel 1998, è stato il governo Berlusconi a firmare nel 2002 l’accordo che ha fatto entrare l’Italia nel programma come partner di secondo livello. È stato nel 2007 il governo Prodi a perfezionarlo e prospettare l’acquisto di 131 caccia. È stato nel 2009 il governo Berlusconi a deliberarne l’acquisto. È stato nel 2012 il governo Monti a «ricalibrare» il numero dei caccia da 131 a 90 per dimostrare che, di fronte alla crisi, tutti devono stringere la cinghia. È stato nel 2013 il governo Letta e nel 2014 quello Renzi a confermare gli impegni dell’Italia nel programma F-35 capeggiato dalla Lockheed Martin, prima produttrice mondiale di armamenti con un fatturato militare annuo di oltre 36 miliardi di dollari.

La macchina produttiva ormai è in moto. Il 12 luglio 2013 la Northrop Grumman, uno dei contrattisti, ha consegnato all’impianto Faco di Cameri la sezione centrale della fusoliera del primo F-35 destinato all’Italia. Ciò avveniva dopo che in maggio la Camera aveva impegnato il governo a «non procedere a nessuna fase di ulteriore acquisizione» dell’F-35. Il 6 marzo 2014, comunica la Lockheed, è decollato per un volo di prova in Texas il primo F-35 con componenti delle ali fabbricati da Alenia Aermacchi. La stessa Lockheed pubblica una cartina della re-te produttiva dell’F-35 in Italia. Componenti del caccia vengono prodotti a Cameri (NO) da Alenia, a Borgomanero (NO) da Mecaer, a Torino da Alenia Aeronautica e Selex Ga-lileo, a Saronno (VA) da Rotodyna, a Milano da Secondo Mona e Aerea, a Genova da Piaggio Aero, a Casella (GE) da Moog Casella, a La Spezia da Oto Melara ed Elettronica Melara, a Montevarchi (AR) da Selex Communication e Sirio Panel, a Foligno (PG) da Oma, a Ortona (CH) da Samputensili, a Cisterna di Latina / Pomezia (RO) da Selex Communication (Marconi), ad Aprilia (LT) da Aviogel e Aero Sekur, a Roma da Selex SI, Elettronica, Gemelli, Logic, Mbda Italia, S3Log, Selex Communication (Marconi), Vitrociset; a Capua (CE) da Cira, a Palermo da Galileo Avionica.

L’Italia è stata dunque legata a doppio filo al programma F-35: in quanto produttrice del caccia, è obbligata ad acquistarne un congruo numero. Al massimo può dilazionare i lotti da acquistare, ma non scendere sotto certi livelli perché verrebbero danneggiate le industrie produttrici. Resta comunque il fatto che, mentre i milioni dei contratti per la produzione di componenti entrano nelle casse di aziende private, i miliardi per l’acquisto dei caccia escono dalle casse pubbliche. L’unica soluzione è uscire dal programma.

Il presidente Obama, che Scanu assicura «non vuole interferire», è stato però chiaro: qualche «risparmio» lo potete promettere, basta però che non usciate dal programma.

La divisione della Turchia di Thierry Meyssan

raid-on-occupy-taksim-park-in-istambul-turkey-g

L’evoluzione politica turca con il primo ministro Erdogan ne rivela l’appartenenza alla Fratellanza musulmana paragonabile a quella dell’Egitto: il sostegno indiscutibile non ha equivalenti nell’odio che suscita. Più che mai il Paese è diviso, nessuna soluzione democratica è in vista, e ciò che verrà, qualsiasi sia, sarà necessariamente violento.

JPEG - 28.4 Kb La politica turca discende nel caos dopo la pubblicazione anonima su YouTube, il 27 marzo, di due registrazioni su un vertice della sicurezza nazionale in cui il governo valuta una manovra per entrare in guerra aperta contro la Siria [1].

Non è la prima volta che registrazioni illegali vengono pubblicate. Il 24 febbraio, un nastro audio permise di ascoltare il primo ministro consigliare al figlio di nascondere 30 milioni in contanti prima che la polizia arrivasse a casa [2]. Nonostante le smentite di Erdogan, tale pezzo ne ruppe l’immagine di uomo pio e rispettoso della legge.

In realtà, nulla funziona normalmente da quando giustizia e polizia lanciarono, alla fine del 2013, un vasto giro di vite contro personalità corrotte. Il primo ministro vi vede una cospirazione del suo ex-alleato, il predicatore Fethullah Gülen, diventato suo rivale [3]. Ha reagito licenziando migliaia di dipendenti pubblici accusati di esserne i discepoli.

Se la stampa occidentale ritiene questi casi dei diversivi, i turchi hanno appreso la vera politica di Erdogan. Costui finanzia a spese dello Stato turco al-Qaida in Siria, ricevendo più volte il banchiere della setta, anche se ricercato globalmente dalle Nazioni Unite [4]. Le registrazioni riguardano il ministro degli Esteri, il suo vice, il vicecapo dello Stato Maggiore e il capo dei servizi segreti. I quattro uomini discutono un’operazione segreta che sarebbe stata compiuta da agenti siriani e attribuita al Daech per giustificare l’invasione turca.

Pubblicati gli atti, il governo preda del panico ha bloccato l’accesso a YouTube. Ha minacciato il leader dell’opposizione Kemal Kiliçdaroglu, che aveva discusso del complotto in televisione prima che venisse svelato, e faceva arrestare Aytaç, intellettuale vicino a Fethullah Gülen, per lo stesso motivo. La risposta autoritaria di Erdogan dà l’impressione di non controllare più la situazione.

In ogni caso, tale notizia mina ogni tentativo turco d’interferire ulteriormente in Siria. Dall’inizio della guerra, Ankara ha fornito supporto logistico della NATO ai jihadisti in armi ed intelligence, fornito copertura umanitaria ai campi militari sul suo territorio finanziandosi con il saccheggio dei macchinari nonché i tesori archeologici di Aleppo. Secondo due testimoni credibili, sempre Ankara ha organizzato l’attacco chimico a Ghuta nell’agosto 2013 [5]. Infine, l’esercito turco infiltra da una settimana centinaia di jihadisti presso Qasab [6]. Quando furono bombardati dall’Aeronautica Siriana, abbatté un aereo siriano per soccorrerli [7].

Il coinvolgimento turco dura da troppo tempo per essere ancora negato. Ankara non supporta solo l’opposizione politica, ma mercenari islamici che praticano il terrorismo.

Per quanto ancora i turchi sosterranno un primo ministro che ha iniziato garantendo di aver lasciato i Fratelli musulmani, che ha sostenuto Washington ed ottenuto facilmente buoni risultati economici, prima di rivelare la sua vera natura? Dall’aggressione della NATO alla Libia, Erdogan è tornato un fratello musulmano, ha sostenuto la distruzione dello Stato libico e del governo siriano ad opera della NATO e dei fratelli, fermando la crescita economica. Tale cambiamento è accompagnato da una deriva autoritaria che fa della Turchia uno dei peggiori Paesi al mondo riguardo la libertà di comunicare, incarcerando oppositori e giornalisti.

Se il primo ministro non ha nulla da temere dall’occidente, perché supporta la NATO, non avrebbe coalizzato gli oppositori sottoponendoli alla stessa repressione. Oltre al popolo, ora dovrà affrontare l’esercito, i cui generali ingiustamente imprigionati vengono rilasciati uno dopo l’altro dai giudici.

Domenica 30 marzo, il popolo s’è espresso alle elezioni comunali: la Turchia non ha respinto l’AKP del primo ministro, ma appare profondamente divisa in due campi implacabilmente contrapposti, da un lato gli islamici, dall’altro i laici. La prevalenza dei primi permette ad Erdogan di aspirare alle prossime elezioni presidenziali, ma il suo Paese non sarà mai come prima e non diverrà un modello regionale.

In breve, qui come altrove, i Fratelli musulmani, anche se con una maggioranza relativa del 45%, non possono sperare d’imporre la loro visione della società. Appena avuti i risultati delle elezioni, Erdogan ha svolto presso la sede del partito un discorso vendicativo, minacciando i “traditori” che l’hanno attaccato.

US/Israel controlled Hamas imposes Sharia law in Gaza


Hamas imposes Sharia law in Gaza

VOLTAIRE NETWORK| 1 APRIL 2014
FRANÇAIS  ESPAÑOL 

Faraj Al Ghoul, the Hamas Justice Minister, announced the Gazan parliament would replace the criminal code in existence since 1936 with a new one based on Sharia Islamic law.

The law stipulates a minimum of 20 lashes for minor offenses, and a minimum of 80 lashes in criminal cases. The hand of a thief will be cut off; the death penalty will be reinstated for criminal offenders including homosexual practices, etc.

The secular group Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) attacked the law as an abuse of power, pointing out that the Gazan parliament’s term has already expired and it is therefore not authorized to issue such a law. Moreover, it slams Hamas for wanting to impose on Palestinian society the retrograde model of the Muslim Brotherhood .

In 2009, Hamas banned motorcyclists from driving a woman on their back seat [1] and imposed the Islamic dress code [2]. On 4 March 2010, Hamas banned men from working in women’s hair salons [3]. On 10 February 2013, Hamas banned mixed schools for students over 9 years [4].

Chechen President: Kassab attackers are following the West’s orders

20140401-165008_h536566Moscow, (SANA) Chechen President Akhmad Kadyrov expressed strong denunciation of the terrorist groups’ attack on Kassab city on Syria’s northern border with Turkey, saying those who attacked the city are following orders to demolish the Syrian state and weaken the Islamic countries.

Writing on his Instagram page, Kadyrov said “those who committed this crime have been raised, fed and armed by the West and are carrying out the orders to destroy Syria and debilitate the Islamic countries”.

He added that the “jihadists” who attacked Kassab “have nothing to do with Islam”.

Armed terrorist groups launched last week an assault against Kassab city in the coastal province of Lattakia under the cover and support of Erdogan’s government which has facilitated the entry of the gunmen into Lattakia northern countryside.

Al-Jaafari: Terrorists Planning to Launch Chemical Attack on Jobar to Accuse the Government

Originally posted on the real SyrianFreePress network:

New York, (SANA) Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari said that terrorist groups are planning to launch attacks using chemical weapons in Jobar area to accuse the Syrian government of it later, as indicated by a phone call between terrorists monitored by the authorities.

Jaafari

Al-Jaafari told Russia Today TV channel in a phone call on Tuesday that he sent two identical letters on March 25th to the UN Secretary-General and President of the Security Council drawing their attention to two vital issues.

He said that the first issue is that the Syrian authorities monitored a landline phone call between two terrorists in Jobar area in Damascus’ suburbs, during which one of the terrorists said a third terrorist referred to as Abu Nader is secretly distributing gas masks to protect from toxic gas among his cohorts.

West arms militants fighting in Syria – Kadyrov

GROZNY: The United States and Western countries train and arm terrorists fighting in Syria, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov said.

“Blood of innocent civilians was shed in Syria yet again. Around 100 people died in the town of Kesab as a result of an attack by militants, who, as the Syrian authorities emphasize, came from Turkey. These were Armenians, native residents of Syria,” Kadyrov posted on his Instagram account.

“According to the official information, al-Qaeda militants from the so-called Front al-Nusra and Islamic Front groups participated in the attack on Kesab,” Kadyrov said. “I say with responsibility based on knowledge of the situation that these terrorists have nothing in common with Islam! They are not Muslims!” he said.

“How can they be called Muslims, if they destroy Islamic relics, including the Uwais al-Qarni relic?” the Chechen leader said.

MOSCOW: The Crimean situation has put an end to Cold War stereotypes, a Russian political expert believes.

“Crimea joining Russia renders [Cold War thinking] obsolete. The peninsula’s position provides control over the Black Sea and Ukraine,” said Kirill Koktysh, a political scientist at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations.

The real US motives behind the Ukrainian situation are not clear, the associate professor told RIA Novosti.

“The US could establish its position on Cold War stereotypes or arguments of the legitimacy of world order, or the economy. Each country has plenty of tools to declare any political result either a success or a failure, especially when it’s not obvious or clear,” he said.

The current crisis in Ukraine is one of America’s largest geopolitical failures, says another Russian foreign affairs expert…

NATO commander ordered back to Europe in response to Ukraine crisis

KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany: America’s top general in Europe has been ordered back from Washington to meet with NATO leaders because of growing uncertainty over Russia’s intentions in Ukraine.

Gen. Phillip Breedlove, who is dual-hatted as the head of U.S. European Command and NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Europe, was slated to testify before Congress Tuesday and Wednesday. But he returned to Germany on Saturday to confer with allies and staff ahead of a long-scheduled, two-day meeting in Brussels with NATO foreign ministers.

The decision to send Breedlove back early was made Friday by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said in a statement.

Hagel “considered Breedlove’s early return the prudent thing to do, given the lack of transparency and intent from Russian leadership about their military movements across the border. More…

Moscow Responds to Sanctions. Bank Rossyia Suspends Foreign Currency Transactions

russibThe action is designed to voice support for the bank, which is creating a precedent in world economy.

An action in support of bank Rossiya which has decided to work exclusively with the national currency will take place in Moscow on Sunday.

The Golden Symbol of Russian Rouble installation in front of the bank’s office in Perevedensky pereulok in Moscow will symbolize the rouble’s stability and its backing by the country’s gold reserves, the action’s organizers explained to Itar-Tass.

Bank Rossiya plans to work only with Russia’s national currency

The action is designed to voice support for the Rossiya bank, which is creating a precedent and can make those who have initiated penalties against Russia to feel sorry about their decision.

The bank’s transition to using exclusively the rouble may prove the Russian currency’s viability and independence in world economy.

“Russia, at its present stage of development, should not be dependent on foreign currencies; its internal resources will make its own economy invulnerable to political wheeler dealers,” the action’s organizers said.

The Russian joint-stock bank, AB Rossiya, decided on Friday that it would work only with the national currency to protect its customers from dishonest actions by foreign financial institutions.

“In order to protect the bank’s customers from dishonest actions by foreign financial institutions AB Rossiya has decided to operate only in the domestic market and exclusively with the national currency of the Russian Federation – the rouble,” AB Rossiya said in a statement released on Friday.

“The bank has already notified some U.S. banks that it is closing its correspondence accounts. Similar notifications have been sent to other foreign financial institutions,” the bank said in its statement.

Despite changes in its work, AB Rossiya will continue meeting its commitments to clients and partners.

“The bank will fulfill its commitments on time and in full volume. The bank does not need financial support for its current operations, including from the state regulator,” AB Rossiya said. The Visa and MasterCard international payment systems stopped servicing the plastic cards of four Russian banks, including AB Rossiya, on March 21 because of their links to sanctioned Russian businessmen included in the United States black list.

The bank Rossiya’s decision to give up foreign currency and start working exclusively with the Russian rouble is a step forward towards converting the Russian economy and banking sector to national currency, Andrei Kostin, the VTB bank president, said in an interview with the Russia 24 TV news channel commenting the decision of bank Rossiya to operate only in the domestic market and exclusively with the Russian rouble.

“We have been moving towards wider use of the Russian rouble as the currency of settlement for a long time. The rouble became fully convertible quite a long time ago. Unfortunately, we have seen predominantly negative consequences of this step so far revealed in the outpour of capital from this country. The influx of foreign investments into Russia has been speculative and considerably destabilizing to our stock markets,” Kostin went on to say.

The VTB chief said that Russia should sell domestic products – from weapons to gas and oil – abroad for roubles and buy foreign goods also for roubles.

“Only then are we going to use the advantages of the rouble being a foreign currency in full measure,” Kostin said, adding that AB Rossiya would form a vital part of the Russian banking system and would closely cooperate with other Russian banks, which would also expand the rouble’s use in settlements.

“A new imperative motive has appeared for that now,” the VTB chief stressed.

“I believe that other credit institutions, enterprises and citizens will be interested in working with bank Rossiya,” Kostin said in conclusion.

Shaaban on Land Day: Al-Quds and Golan eyes of Arab Nation

shabannDamascus, (SANA) Presidential Political and Media Advisor Dr. Bouthaina Shaaban said that al-Quds and Golan are the eyes of the Arab Nation and it is the duty of all to defend them, adding “clinging to the land and sacrificing for it is the only choice for us.”

Shaaban pointed out Sunday during the inauguration of “From Golan to al-Quds” forum marking 38th anniversary of the Land Day, which was held by Al-Quds International Foundation in Damascus-based al-Sham Hotel with the participation of a number of researchers and thinkers, that those who defend al-Quds and Golan from any Arab country are actually defending themselves, their Arabism, religion and future, considering that “no-one has a favor in that as we are all targeted…and did not we believe in that, they would occupy our lands piece after piece.”

She pointed out that everybody sees how and why Syria is being targeted, “So we move back to the same equation which is clinging to the land, the principle and the value of sacrifice.”

“All those who launch assault on Syria will be repelled…hundreds of invaders had come to this land throughout thousands of years, but they were repelled and we have remained here because we believe in our land,” Shaaban added.

shablandday

Presidential Political and Media Advisor clarified that the war waged on Syria is not of a sectarian nature but rather it is a war launched for controlling our land , pointing out that Israel set schemes for a hundred years in advance, and the sole response to that is represented through adhering to the land, the principles and the value of sacrifice.

“We should comprehend the principle of the land deeply and comprehensively because it is a basic condition for our existence, and if we take a panoramic view of the human history we could see that the entire conflicts revolve on the lands,” she elaborated.

“The Palestinians were not mistaken when they considered that their presence in the land is the only right and genuine existence,” Shaaban said.

She lauded the adherence of the Arabs and Syrians to the occupied Golan, reminding of what the late President Hafez al-Assad said “We will not give up a grain of soil of Golan.”

Shaaban stressed that the Arab-Zionist conflict is the compass of all what is going on in the Arab land, clarifying “We will not master analysis without realizing that the Palestinian issue is the Arabs’ central issue, and targeting the Palestinians is the first step for attacking all the Arabs.”

Assistant Secretary General of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command Talal Naji said the reason behind the conspiring against the Syrian people is their adherence to the Palestinian Cause and belief in the liberation of the occupied Palestinian territories.

“The West wants the Arab leaders and countries to be in cahoots with them to liquidate the national rights of the Palestinian people,” he added.

He addressed the Syrian people by saying “We will always be with you until we liberate the occupied territories in Palestine, Syria, Lebanon and each and every Arab land.”

“Land Day is the day of belonging to the genuine Arab national identity,” said Director General of al-Quds International Foundation Safir al-Jarad.

He highlighted the significance and symbolism of Golan and Palestine and the unity of their course of struggle in confronting the Israeli ambitions.

The Russian Foreign Ministry has condemned what it calls Western double standards toward militants operating against the government in Syria.

In a statement carried by the Interfax News Agency, the ministry said it is ironic that the West insists on the observance of human rights and at the same time attempts to “flirt” with some terrorist groups and portray some militants as moderate.

It pointed out that Syrian troops are waging an uncompromising fight against extremists and terrorists.

Russia insisted that there is no military solution to the conflict in Syria and that the West must halt its support for the militants operating in the crisis-hit country.

Moscow: UNHRC resolution on Syria biased, contradicts independent committee’s report

Escobar: Putin Not Part of NWO, Labelled Evil by Elites

Moscow, (SANA) – Russian Foreign Ministry slammed the UN Human Rights Council latest resolution on Syria, describing it as “biased.”

Russia Today website reported the ministry as saying in a statement that the resolution of the 25th session of the UNHRC on Syria is biased and contradicts the report which was issue by the independent committee recently.

UNHRC adopted a resolution on Syria that was strongly rejected by Russia and other countries.

“Violence on the side of gunmen was mentioned in detail in the independent committee’s report, such as mass killings, abducting women and children, sexual violence, the recruitment of children, the bombardment of densely-populated areas with mortars and the terrorist acts by ‘Free Syrian Army’ which some partners seek to cast as a moderate opposition,” the Russian ministry said.

“It is odd enough that a whole list of places where the Syrian government suppresses freedoms is published,” added the statement, indicating that the committee’s report mentioned that every extremist group has its own detention center in which torture takes place.

Nasrallah: What is happening in Syria threatens entire region

Ainatha, (SANA) Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said that some sides’ problem with the resistance is its political position on the Syrian issue, when Hezbollah said it is against this conflict and the overthrow of the government since the first day, and that the problem is not due to Hezbollah’s military intervention which came after everyone interfered in the crisis in Syria.

In a televised speech at the launch of the Jabal Amel Culture and Literature forum in Ainatha Friday, Sayyed Nasrallah said that the party’s rejection of the plot against Syria made the war on Syria target the party, adding that the resistance did not bow down to the plot because it considers what is happening to be strategic and serious challenges for Syria, the resistance, Lebanon, Palestine and the region.

He said that the position of the party was political at first, before terrorists moved into areas few hundred meters way from the Holy shrine of Sayyeda Zainab, which is when the resistance interfered to prevent them from demolishing the shrine.

He added that the Turkish government speaks of a shrine of the forbearer of the Ottomans, whose name is not known to most of Muslims, and it considers it a Turkish right to interfere militarily in Syria to protect this shrine.

Nasrallah stressed that the resistance did not violate the Syrian sovereignty as it entered with the approval of the Syrian government, adding “after al-Quseir, we reached a stage where it was clear that the battle in Syria has reached this stage as a result of the size of the regional and international interference, at which point the crisis became related to the resistance, its existence and identity.

“Since the beginning we talked about a political solution while the Arab regimes wanted to overthrow the government,” Nasrallah said, adding that “after three years the decisions of the Arab summit all talked about the same solution. It took them three years to say what should have been said since the first day.”

He highlighted that the Syrian leadership has welcomed dialogue and expressed readiness to carry out reforms since the beginning of the crisis, but no-one was willing to discuss the political solution as they thought that the issue will be over and everything will change in Syria and the region within two months.

He called upon the sides which are interfering in Syria, be they Arab countries or Lebanese parties, to comprehend that what is happening in Syria will expose all the region to the dangers of terrorism.

Nasrallah said that some Lebanese sides have not realized yet that what is happening in Syria is a threat to their own country, adding that there is a fear that Takfiri mentality could seize control, adding that this mentality does not accept anyone, citing the fierce battles between the “Islamic State in Iraq and Sham” and “Jabhet al-Nusra” terrorist organizations, where thousands of people were killed because of an administrative and organizational difference between them, asking how could these sides live with the rest of the Lebanese, Syrians, and peoples of the region.

He addressed the sides which had said that the problem is the party’s intervention in Syria, saying that the problem is that the party was late in intervening.

Pushing Toward The Final War ~USA and Saudi Arabia are preparing a major deal against Russia and Iran


Pushing Toward The Final War ~ Paul Craig Roberts

f6e31-hiroshima1

Does Obama realize that he is leading the US and its puppet states to war with Russia and China, or is Obama being manipulated into this disaster by his neoconservative speech writers and government officials? World War 1 (and World War 2) was the result of the ambitions and mistakes of a very small number of people. Only one head of state was actually involved–the President of France.

In The genesis Of The World War, Harry Elmer Barnes shows that World War 1 was the product of 4 or 5 people. Three stand out: Raymond Poincare`, President of France, Sergei Sazonov, Russian Foreign Minister, and Alexander Izvolski, Russian Ambassador to France. Poincare` wanted Alsace-Lorraine from Germany, and the Russians wanted Istanbul and the Bosphorus Strait, which connects the Black Sea to the Mediterranean. They realized that their ambitions required a general European war and worked to produce the desired war.

A Franco-Russian Alliance was formed. This alliance became the vehicle for orchestrating the war. The British government, thanks to the incompetence, stupidity, or whatever of its Foreign Minister, Sir Edward Grey, was pulled into the Franco-Russian Alliance. The war was started by Russia’s mobilization. The German Kaiser, Wilhelm II, was blamed for the war despite the fact that he did everything possible to avoid it.

Barnes’ book was published in 1926. His reward for confronting the corrupt court historians with the truth was to be accused of being paid by Germany to write his history. Eighty-six years later historian Christopher Clark in his book, The Sleepwalkers, comes to essentially the same conclusion as Barnes.

In the history I was taught the war was blamed on Germany for challenging British naval supremacy by building too many battleships. The court historians who gave us this tale helped to set up World War 2.

We are again on the road to World War. One hundred years ago the creation of a world war by a few had to be done under the cover of deception. Germany had to be caught off guard. The British had to be manipulated and, of course, people in all the countries involved had to be propagandized and brainwashed.

Today the drive to war is blatantly obvious. The lies are obvious, and the entire West is participating, both media and governments.

The American puppet, Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper, openly lied on Canadian TV that Russian President Putin had invaded Crimea, threatened Ukraine, and was restarting the Cold War. The host of the TV program sat and nodded his head in agreement with these bald-faced lies.http://www.calgaryherald.com/news/Stephen+Harper+accuses+Vladimir+Putin+being+stuck+back+USSR/9663692/story.html

The script that Washington handed to its Canadian puppet has been handed to all of Washington’s puppets, and everywhere in the West the message is the same. “Putin invaded and annexed Crimea, Putin is determined to rebuild the Soviet Empire, Putin must be stopped.”

I hear from many Canadians who are outraged that their elected government represents Washington and not Canadians, but as bad as Harper is, Obama and Fox “News” are worse.

On March 26 I managed to catch a bit of Fox “news.” Murdoch’s propaganda organ was reporting that Putin was restoring the Soviet era practice of exercise. Fox “news” made this report into a threatening and dangerous gesture toward the West. Fox produced an “expert,” whose name I caught as Eric Steckelbeck or something like that. The “expert” declared that Putin was creating “the Hitler youth,” with a view toward rebuilding the Soviet empire.

The extraordinary transparent lie that Russia sent an army into Ukraine and annexed Crimea is now accepted as fact everywhere in the West, even among critics of US policy toward Russia.

Obama, whose government overthrew the democratically elected government in Ukraine and appointed a stooge government that has threatened the Russian provinces of Ukraine, falsely accuses Putin of “invading and annexing” Crimea.

Obama, or his handlers and programers, are relying on the total historical ignorance of Western peoples. The ignorance and gullibility of Western peoples allows the American neoconservatives to fashion “news” that controls their minds.

Obama recently declared that Washington’s destruction of Iraq–up to one million killed, four million displaced, infrastructure in ruins, sectarian violence exploding, a country in total ruins–is nowhere near as bad as Russia’s acceptance of Crimean self-determination. US Secretary of State John Kerry actually ordered Putin to prevent the referendum and stop Crimeans from exercising self-determination.

Obama’s speech on March 26 at the Palace of Fine Arts in Brussels is surreal. It is beyond hypocrisy. Obama says that Western ideals are challenged by self-determination in Crimea. Russia, Obama says, must be punished by the West for permitting Crimeans to exercise self-determination. The return of a Russian province on its own volition to its mother country where it existed for 200 years is presented by Obama as a dictatorial, anti-democratic act of tyranny. http://on.rt.com/sbzj4o

Here was Obama, whose government has just overthrown the elected, democratic government of Ukraine and substituted stooges chosen by Washington in the place of the elected government, speaking of the hallowed ideal that “people in nations can make their own decisions about their future.” That is exactly what Crimea did, and that is exactly what the US coup in Kiev contravened. In the twisted mind of Obama, self-determination consists of governments imposed by Washington.

Here was Obama, who has shredded the US Constitution, speaking of “individual rights and rule of law.” Where is this rule of law? It is certainly not in Kiev where an elected government was overthrown with force. It is certainly not in the United States where the executive branch has spent the entirety of the new 21st century establishing government above the law. Habeas corpus, due process, the right to open trials and determination of guilt by independent jurors prior to imprisonment and execution, the right to privacy have all been overturned by the Bush/Obama regimes. Torture is against US and international law; yet Washington set up torture prisons all over the globe.

How is it possible that the representative of the war criminal US government can stand before an European audience and speak of “rule of law,” “individual rights,” “human dignity,” “self-determination,” “freedom,” without the audience breaking out in laughter?

Washington is the government that invaded and destroyed Afghanistan and Iraq on the basis of lies. Washington is the government that financed and organized the overthrow of the Libyan and Honduran governments and that is currently attempting to do the same thing to Syria and Venezuela. Washington is the government that attacks with drones and bombs populations in the sovereign countries of Pakistan and Yemen. Washington is the government that has troops all over Africa. Washington is the government that has surrounded Russia, China, and Iran with military bases. It is this warmongering collection of Washington war criminals that now asserts that it is standing up for international ideals against Russia.

No one applauded Obama’s nonsensical speech. But for Europe to accept such blatant lies from a liar without protest empowers the momentum toward war that Washington is pushing.

Obama demands more NATO troops to be stationed in Eastern Europe to “contain Russia.”http://news.antiwar.com/2014/03/26/obama-wants-more-nato-troops-in-eastern-europe/ Obama said that a buildup of military forces on Russia’s borders would reassure Poland and the Baltic states that, as NATO members, they will be protected from Russian aggression. This nonsense is voiced by Obama despite the fact that no one expects Russia to invade Poland or the Baltic countries.

Obama doesn’t say what effect the US/NATO military buildup and numerous war games on Russia’s border will have on Russia. Will the Russian government conclude that Russia is about to be attacked and strike first? The reckless carelessness of Obama is the way wars start.

Declaring that “freedom isn’t free,” Obama is putting pressure on Western Europe to pony up more money for a military buildup to confront Russia. http://news.antiwar.com/2014/03/26/us-presses-eu-nations-to-hike-military-spending-to-confront-russia/

The position of the government in Washington and its puppet states (Eastern and Western Europe, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Georgia, Japan) and other allies purchased with bagfuls of money is that Washington’s violation of international law by torturing people, by invading sovereign countries on totally false pretenses, by routinely overthrowing democratically elected governments that do not toe the Washington line is nothing but the “indispensable and exceptional country” bringing “freedom and democracy to the world.” But Russia’s acceptance of the self-determination of Crimean people to return to their home country is “a violation of international law.”

Just what international law has Washington and its puppets not violated?

Obama, whose government in the past few years has bullied Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Lebanon, Iran, Honduras, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Venezuela and is now trying to bully Russia, actually declared that “bigger nations can not simply bully smaller ones.” What does Obama and his speech writers think Washington has been doing for the entirety of the 21st century?

Who can possibly believe that Obama, whose government is responsible for the deaths of people every day in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Libya, and Syria, cares a whit about democracy in Ukraine. Obama overthrew the Ukrainian government in order to be able to stuff the country into NATO, throw Russia out of its Black Sea naval base, and put US missile bases in Ukraine on Russia’s border. Obama is angry that his plan didn’t pan out as intended, and he is taking his anger and frustration out on Russia.

As the delusion takes hold in Washington that the US represents idealism standing firmly against Russian aggression, delusion enabled by the presstitute media, the UN General Assembly vote, and Washington’s string of puppet states, self-righteousness rises in Washington’s breast.

With rising self-righteousness will come more demands for punishing Russia, more demonization of Russia and Putin, more lies echoed by the presstitutes and puppets. Ukrainian violence against Russian residents is likely to intensify with the anti-Russian propaganda. Putin could be forced to send in Russian troops to defend Russians.

Why are people so blind that they do not see Obama driving the world to its final war?

Just as Obama dresses up his aggression toward Russia as idealism resisting selfish territorial ambitions, the English, French, and Americans presented their World War 1 “victory” as the triumph of idealism over German and Austrian imperialism and territorial ambitions. But at the Versailles Conference the Bolsheviks (the Tsar’s government failed to gain the Straits and instead lost the country to Lenin) “revealed the existence of the notorious Secret Treaties embodying as sordid a program of territorial pilfering as can be found in the history of diplomacy. It appears that the chief actual motives of the Entente in the World War were the seizure of Constantinople and the Straits for Russia; not only the return of Alsace-Lorraine to France, but the securing of the west bank of the Rhine, which would have involved the seizure of territory historically far longer connected with Germany than Alsace-Lorraine had ever been with France; the rewarding of Italian entry into the War by extensive territory grabbed away from Austria and the Jugo-Slavs; and the sequestering of the German imperial possessions, the acquisition of the German merchant marine and the destruction of the German navy in the interest of increasing the strength of the British Empire” (Barnes, pp. 691-692). The American share of the loot was seized German and Austrian investments in the US.

The secret British, Russian, and French aims of the war were hidden from the public, which was whipped up with fabricated propaganda to support a war whose outcomes were far different from the intentions of those who caused the war. People seem unable to learn from history. We are now witnessing the world again being led down the garden path by lies and propaganda, this time in behalf of American world hegemony.

USA and Saudi Arabia are preparing a major deal against Russia and Iran

EDITOR’S CHOICE | 30.03.2014 | 02:00

Beginning on Obama’s visit to Saudi Arabia will turn the scale transaction. Whatever eluded official American representatives direct questions about the agenda of the talks the U.S. president with the Saudis, it is now clear that the focus will be on issues in Ukraine, Syria and joint steps in the “game for a fall” in energy prices. And from this the inevitable logical to conclude that this transaction will be directed against Russia and Iran.

Support Obama coup in Ukraine, had resulted in a serious defeat Western Washington dictates the urgent need for the urgent mobilization of all its allies to confront outlined axis Moscow – Tehran – Beijing. Moreover, in this confrontation Moscow today is not only to themselves but also on behalf of the Customs Union, which, contrary to the predictions of skeptics, is becoming more real. Events in the Crimea American establishment opened a new and unpleasant reality. Russia did not succumb to blackmail and pressure, and the West promises speedy punishment were a bluff, because of financial and political resources to rein back “high-handed Kremlin” in the United States and its NATO allies have not appeared.

Logical in this situation looks decision the White House rushed to restore relations with the strategic partners with whom lately frankly did not develop. And not because Riyadh and Washington had differences in strategic approaches to the different international issues. At the peak cooling when the parties exchanged accusations very strict, no one cent has been reduced military cooperation between the two countries, even for one day was not terminated cooperation of intelligence services in the secret war that the U.S. and the Kingdom waged against Iran and Syria. So “of lovers – is upset”, but today comes a time when even small differences should be set aside and stand united against their geopolitical rivals – Moscow and Tehran.

White House officials say hints that Obama carries in Riyadh a package of proposals to strengthen the strategic partnership, which is called the “New Perspectives”. What’s in it, in this package? To answer this question, you first need to understand what are the common threats to see for themselves the Washington and Riyadh.

Isolate Iran and to expel Russia from the Middle East

That’s right, without undue modesty called main strategic objective, which has set itself the U.S. and the Saudis. A time when Washington is not willing, but agreed to the participation of Russia in the Middle East process with an uncertain status for Moscow “co-sponsor of the peace settlement,” over and ended immediately after the referendum in the Crimea. Republicans and united with them “hawks” in the Democratic Party, fiercely criticized Obama for hesitancy in the Syrian issue, after Crimea finally lost the remnants of the adequacy and require any cost only one thing – revenge. Whack possible in three ways: defeat in Syria, after which all Levant goes under the US-Saudi control. Support the “young democracy” in Kiev, whose leadership for financial assistance to enable to stay in power, making Ukraine outpost anti-Russian activities in Eastern Europe. Play “at lower prices,” energy, which would be a serious blow to Russia’s budget and achieve a significant reduction in consumption West Russian oil and gas.

None of these areas without Obama Riyadh can not do, and he will be forced out of the skin to get out, to get the consent of the Saudis to support its efforts in Ukraine and to take part in the “game for a fall.” Washington has no official announcement and hype went as far as possible to meet the hegemonic aspirations of Saudi Arabia. The system of “proxy wars” when Washington strategic partners have complete “free hand” in exchange for a decision in the interests of U.S. regional objectives, flourished under Obama lush color, and Riyadh has received so much “power of attorney” as has neither one of other U.S. allies. It Riyadh entitled building a special relationship with Egypt after the overthrow of the government Mursi. The excesses of the dynasty in Bahrain and in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia against Shia West completely closed his eyes. No objections have not heard a word about the Saudis started by the operation of “taming” of Qatar and the defeat of “Muslim brothers.” Trust Washington stretched so far that the White House has admitted Riyadh to the most scrupulous and painful issue for themselves – the Israeli-Palestinian settlement, “instructing” the Saudis work with Jordan, which has a special role in the new scheme, the Palestinian cause.

Overthrow Assad and “take Tehran on a leash”

But Riyadh all this is not enough, he wants more – namely, defeating al-Assad. All that the Saudis offer U.S. – from PersoPRO, programs and re-hegemony in the Islamic world from the Maghreb to Pakistan – they, the Saudis, love. But there is no answer to the main question: “How to stop the growing influence of Iran and Shiite” Awakening “in the world?” Without an answer to this question all the U.S. proposal, all the assurances of friendship and close cooperation are irrelevant, because without solving this issue dynasty is doomed. And not just doomed to loss of power. So in the East does not happen. It is doomed to extermination, and the first hit is “neighbors”, the other contenders for leadership from Qatari Emir Hamad bin Tamim to the Muslim Brotherhood and various Wahhabi sheikhs.

To avoid this, the dynasty must still prove their worth to the rest of the Muslim world. Simply put – it needs a victorious war, and Syria is the solution for this as well as possible. Damascus will be taking to Riyadh thus a valuable prize, which will strengthen its position as a leader among the Arab states, and allow unhindered further implement regional projects – from creation of a Jordanian-Palestinian federation until the formation of anti-Shia league from the Arabian Peninsula to Pakistan.

Damascus, which is often overlooked, the prize is not only political, but primarily – economic. Having a unique geographical position, Syria can play a key role in supplying oil and gas to Europe. Agreement on construction of gas pipeline Iran – Iraq – Syria was signed by the parties in July 2012 The fact that Syria has become a major obstacle to the pipeline project from Qatar’s North Field to Europe, which would allow another player to strike Qatar by Gazprom, and hence by a sharp increase in Russian gas supplies cheap Qatari gas to Europe. Damascus for various reasons did not consent to lay a gas pipeline from Qatar through its territory to Turkey and the Mediterranean coast for onward transit to Europe. While Bashar al-Assad in power, it is impossible gas pipeline on the Syrian Mediterranean coast of Qatar.Naturally, the only reasons for this was quite enough to keep the Doha aggression against Damascus, and do everything possible to overthrow Assad. Qatar’s aggressive stance in the fight for gas markets has found full understanding in the United States, also seeking to remain “the Comptroller” energy prices.

That Gazprom in such hands, completely lose foreign markets is obvious. And after the problems start problems Gazprom Russian budget to pay for the full years of inactivity in the waiver of the “oil and gas needle.”

Experts in the field of energy back in 2009 – 2010 years have calculated that if the authorities in Syria to come instead of Sunni Alawite regime of Bashar Assad, the gas pipeline Qatar – Saudi Arabia – Jordan – Syria – Turkey will be built immediately, which entails a huge financial and political risks for Russia, with Qatari gas which can not compete due to extremely low cost of the latter.

In an effort to Qatar “get ahead” of the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, to enter into a pact with antiasadovskogo most notorious and frostbitten from Islamic radicals present understandable disappointment Doha indecisive, in her opinion, the actions of Washington and Riyadh in the “final solution of the Syrian issue.” In this circumstance the same reason that dynasty Saudis seriously concerned Qatar as driven by the loss of planned revenues lost faith in the leadership qualities of the royal dynasty young emir can go on any action to overthrow the Saudis. Qatar attempt to establish a dialogue with Iran – of the same order of Doha desire to act independently, with no illusions that Riyadh will do something for the rest of their partners in the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf. This position of Qatar, which is far from alone in his dissatisfaction with the Saudis, another reason for the royal family to strive for victory over Damascus and Washington require any cost even go the last line in support of Syrian rebels.

The case for small – for U.S. approval for other kinds of assistance to Syrian rebels, in particular the delivery of heavy weapons and anti-aircraft missiles that would negate the superiority of the Syrian government forces in firepower and air superiority, that is, change the military balance in favor of “the armed opposition.” Well, then – all rolled scheme, which has repeatedly been worked on all kinds of meetings: the creation of a no-fly zone near the Turkish or Jordanian border, turning this area into a stronghold of militants, “injection” of weapons and there – a march on Damascus.

With the fall of Syria, Iran will be forced to move to strategic defense, and that Riyadh is quite satisfied, as reasons for tightening the noose around Tehran in the “international community” there is always more than enough. For possession of such a prize Riyadh is willing to pay “on demand”. Fifteen billion, much-needed support for Obama “young Ukrainian diplomacy”? Temporary financial costs of participation in the war on falling prices? Riyadh “discourage” the money later, using insulated Tehran and Russia.

* * *

The American establishment is literally Obama pokes his nose in obvious and practically insists: “The West needs to find a way to hurt Putin, while not harming yourself. And there is. Have to convince Saudi Arabia to do in the West all the dirty work.Such a precedent. Angered by the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979, the Saudis discovered oil valves, resulting in the mid-1980s to the fall in world oil prices to $ 20 per barrel (in current prices). Today quite a lot smaller reduction – from the current $ 107 per barrel to around $ 90 incomplete – and Russia will suffer a huge financial and economic damage. The U.S. president has all the chances to turn his trip to the Kingdom in one of the biggest success stories of American diplomacy in the Middle East after a series of failures, to take revenge for the Crimea. Blood, which inevitably spilled as a result of this transaction, write off the “costs of establishing democracy.” And it’s all familiar, as it’s not the first time…
