His site is Syria Comment

I have used some of his information on my blog. Specifically on Farid Ghadry.
The interview is about an hour in length, covers a broad spectrum of topics surrounding the Syrian Upheaval.
Including Turkey, Iran, Lebanon, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Russia the US and more


  1. I put a post up to that effect and blogger took it down from the blog and it sits in the draft

    Here is a snip of what I had posted then-

    The False Flag potential.

    The USS Enterprise, which was set to be decommissioned originally in 2015 was sent to the Mediterranean for ONE LAST deployment, before it's planned earlier decommissioning in 2012.
    Yes, they moved that ahead three years.
    Making the USS Enterprise the perfect sitting duck for a false flag attack.

    Ironically or not, coincidentally or not the USS Enterprise was deployed to the area on January 13/2011. (What an "unlucky" number)

    And it is the world's first NUCLEAR powered aircraft carrier.

    The most decorated ship in US Naval History.

    end of snip!
    The false flag potential is immense

  2. Yes, I searched for that post before I posted that comment and noticed it had gone missing. I was able to open it a few days ago, though it may have been the google cache that I had opened. There are a number of things coming up for which a big diversion could be quite useful. We shall see. Blogger is either exceedingly quirky, or you're hitting the right spots.

  3. I don't have hi-speed 'Net access, so can't watch this video, but it sounds interesting and something Israel and the USA would do to keep the Libyan war going:

    Israeli paper confirms Netanyahu ordered African mercenaries and now Gaddafi's son visits Israel

    ISRAEL: PRESS, ISRAEL BEHIND AFRICAN MERCENARIES IN LIBYA - http://www.ansamed.info/en/israele/news/ME.XEF40598.html

    (ANSAmed) - ROME, MARCH 1 - With approval from the government in Tel Aviv, an Israeli security firm is responsible for sending groups of African mercenaries to Libya to fight the protestors who have been calling for the fall of the Gaddafi regime for the last two weeks, reports Al Jazeera's website, citing a source in the Israeli press. The journalist from Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot, who prefers to remain anonymous, said that according to speculation in the security sector, Israel looks at Libya from a strategic perspective and in terms of security. The fall of Gaddafi would open the door for an Islamic regime in Libya, according to speculation. In a meeting on February 18, Prime Minister Netanyahu, Defence Minister Barak and Foreign Minister Lieberman decided to recruit African mercenaries to fight alongside Gaddafi, according to the journalist. During the meeting, they decided to let General Isarel Zef, the director of security firm Global CST, which is active in many African countries, to make a group of paramilitary mercenaries from Guinea, Nigeria, Central Africa, Mali, Senegal, Darfur and Southern Sudan available to Abdullah Assinousi, one of the heads of Libya's intelligence agency.

    Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot, Israel that had been reported, according to diplomatic sources, an Israeli high-informed and that the affairs of Libya's Saif al-Islam, son of Colonel Muammar GaddafiMuammar Gaddafi, the two days before a quick visit

    The newspaper said that according to the Hebrew source of other Libyan spoke to Arab media outlets, the relationship between Saif al-Islam and Israel has evolved considerably during the current crisis came amid reports that Israeli security firms active in Chad and the recruitment of mercenaries sent to Libya unrealized gains billions of dollars.


  4. Hey Greg, I will take a look at that.
    I recall the news that Ghadaffi's son was allegedly going to Israel, but, did he?

    I see the news story was from March?

    My take on the story of the mercenaries was that Israel did get them, but, I heard somewhere or read somewhere it may have been to stir the populace against Ghaddafi.

    Which seems to be the scenario playing out in Syria.

    Though I haven't a clue who is behind the armed snipers etc.,
    Could be private, Israeli, Turks, Saudis, all of the above, who knows?

  5. Blammo: I have it in my draft still and blogger can be "quirky" and that is being polite.
