I had a story bookmarked headline screamin'- Muslim Brotherhood Backs Syrian Protests.
Then the headline and most of the story changed. Dam! Some of the stories were completely gone!
Nothing says western infiltration like the Muslim Brotherhood endorsing an uprising in a nation that the west is targeting.
So timely and convenient
Still I found some stories carrying the old header and original news
Muslim Brotherhood Backs Syrian Protesters
Interesting to note the mention of the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood is "empowered" in Egypt? I wonder if the Egyptian people are aware of this?
The Muslim Brotherhood issued a statement Friday encouraging Syrian protesters to press on with their demonstrations. Syrian activists have called for a "Day of Rage" following Friday's Muslim prayers.
The Muslim Brotherhood -- now empowered in Egypt following the overthrow of former President Hosni Mubarak's regime -- was outlawed in 1982 by then Syrian President Hafez al-Assad, father of current president, Bashar al-Assad, after staging an uprising.
Now that I have gotten that out of the way, let's move on to the next move at the UN Security Council-
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, the claim is being made that Syria might, could possibly have been, building a nuclear power plant- 4 years ago , that Israel may have bombed in 2007. The WMD card is being played. A worn out card. Paper thin. Thinking people cannot continue to accept this manipulation.
The WMD angle is a yawner- But, that won't stop the US.
The International Atomic Energy Agency is setting the stage for potential U.N. Security Council action against Syria as the organization prepares a report assessing that a Syrian target bombed by Israeli warplanes was likely a secretly built nuclear reactor meant to produce plutonium
Such a conclusion would back intelligence produced by Israel and the United States.
Har dee har har. "Intelligence produced by Israel and the US" This would mean fabrications.
Three diplomats and a senior U.N. official said such an assessment -- drawn up by IAEA chief Yukiya Amano -- would be the basis of a Western-sponsored resolution at a meeting of the 35-nation IAEA board that condemns Syria's refusal to co-operate with the agency and kicks the issue to the U.N. Security Council.
The first move at the UN failed. The US has a second and third move already planned. I have already addressed the second one- WMD's. Onto the third.....
The US is pushing the Human Rights Council to do some "investigating" but were/are playing hot and heavy politics with India. Attempting to stack the deck in their favour.
Let's take a skip over to Libya- where Libyan forces have fought the rebels all the way into Tunisia!
Syria is set to pose the next Libya question for India with the United States wanting New Delhi’s help to see Damascus out of the race for a seat in the UN Human Rights Council.
India is part of what’s called a “clean slate arrangement” with Syria, Indonesia and Philippines — this requires no voting for the four seats in the council to be filled from the Asian region.
It’s learnt that Washington wants New Delhi to support its efforts at finding a fresh candidate. While Syria is unlikely to back down on its own, sources said, the US wants a fifth Asian country to stake claim so that the “clean slate” arrangement is broken and voting will be necessitated to select the final four.
In fact, the US is in talks with several countries, including Nepal, to become a contestant.
Libyan forces chase rebels into Tunisia, clash
-Libyan troops chased rebel fighters across the border with Tunisia and clashed with them.
The spillover of the Libyan conflict into Tunisia introduced a further complication into more than two months of fighting with shifting front lines. The Dhuheiba border crossing between Libya and Tunisia has been a flashpoint in recent days. The crossing has been changing hands repeatedly between rebels and regime forces.
The rebel forces, we were lead to believe were so huge, are very clearly paltry. At best. The western media has been spinning the Libyan situation as a major uprising, when it has been nothing of the sort. Same for Syria.
Thanks to Buffy/Magdelena for this one! Straight up trash. Viagra and a Pack of Lies
The U.S. envoy to the United Nations told the Security Council on Thursday that troops loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi were increasingly engaging in sexual violence and some had been issued the impotency drug Viagra, diplomats said.
I wonder how the pharmaceutical company that makes Viagra is enjoying that bit of associative advertising ? Viagra and Rape?? Susan Rice is that desperate for spin?
When you get propaganda on this level, you gotta know regime change ain't goin' well in Libya!
