Syria: From Nail Bombs to Israel and all points in between!

Alert, Alert!!! Going to cover alot of ground here. Come prepared with necessary accoutrements!

I want to
open this post with a news story of Syrian forces allegedly firing "nail bombs".
Of course, this cannot be independently verified. Of course.
This report comes from the Britain-based group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and is based on a lone claim from an unnamed activist
"An activist in the city told the Observatory that he was hurt by shrapnel from those bombs"

Unimpeachable, to be sure? Ah, not so much.
This appears to be a demonization story planted in the media for perception management purposes. We have heard stories along this line any number of times. Libya and Viagra being one really laughable example of war propaganda.

Which leads me to wonder if there was a nail bomb at all?
Or just who was using the nail bomb?

Was the person claiming to be wounded by the "nail bomb", the person attempting to use one?


This makes more sense to me, as I will explain.
The so called "nail bomb" seems to have a long history of use, but, not by governmental forces or armies. They would have no need to use a 'nail bomb'.
So who would use a nail bomb?
Let's see..... the patsy destabilizer type would find a real good use for them.

Nail bombs seem to have had their modern birth with one terrorist patsy in the UK.


David Copeland.

Mr Copeland seemed to draw inspiration from a possible MI5 operative David Myatt

More recently "nail bombs" made appearances at a subway bombing in Minsk.
At that time the President of Belarus suggested the nail bombs were the work of foreign agencies.
The "explosion was aimed at undermining "peace and stability" and hinted at possible foreign involvement"

Prior to that "nail bombs" also appeared at the airport bombing in Moscow
"the explosive device was packed with bolts, nuts, nails and ball bearings"

I covered the news of the airport bombing here. That one was a bit fishy too.

Reviewing the brief history of "nail bombs" they look to be a mode of destruction and terror used by destabilizers with intelligence backers. Good for causing fear amongst the domestic population.

An Army would have no use for this type of bomb. Therefore, as stated if there was a nail bomb being used, the person injured was most likely the one attempting to deploy it.

Onto another interesting story- Snipers rule the streets in Homs

From the msm outlet CNN. Being spun of course as Army Snipers. How does he know this to be fact? He tells a story of terror at the hands of the snipers. All very emotional.
But, gives nothing to back his claims up.
Given previous reports of snipers it seems plausible there are snipers, but what advantage would sniping citizens give to the government. None.
Randomly killing civilians serves the destabilizing forces. It will wear them down and cause them to join the destabilizing/terror forces rather then risk being killed.
The Assad government has nothing to gain undertaking these tactics which would only serve to turn more people against them.




Do you notice that they are higher up? Well above the city streets. Are these the snipers, reported on by CNN, who have made holes in the wall to shoot people in the streets? . Entirely Possible. Their not Syrian military.

It seems the Western corporate media is working fast and furious to create a perception of a brutal despotic regime, whose people are in need of humanitarian aid under the R2P doctrine, of course.
R2P is really imperialistic, tyrannical takeover through massive slaughter via aerial bombings, sugar coated for the western audiences so they can feel "smug and secure" while their tax dollars are used for the mass slaughter of innocent civilians.

"I'd like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony"
"I'd like to buy the world a Coke, and keep it company"

Sugar coated indoctrination. Makes you feel good, if you don't bother about facts or reality.

It is also not a coincidence that the media is spinning fear and mayhem today because just yesterday the Arab monitors that had been going through Syria, reported all was not as bad as had been portrayed.
In fact one monitor reported that there was nothing "really frightening" going on.
Which of course raised the ire of the so called activists and the international community.

Earlier, Mohammad Mustafa al-Dabi, head of the observer mission, told the private Addounia TV that the situation in Homs is "placatory till now." His words aroused accusation and unsatisfaction among oppositon groups, which said "this is contrary to the fact," and cast doubts over the evenhandedness of the Arab mission.

Some opposition figures accused AL members of collaborating with the Syrian government


Contrast the international communities voice with this-


Hassan Abdul-Azim, chairman of the opposing Syrian National Coordination Body, said the Arab observers are coordinating efforts with the body and with other organizations, contrary to the allegations of some opposition parties


If anything it would seem the Arab Monitors have emboldened the destabilizers.

Calling to arms and gathering without fear, in light of the fact that "Syria has pulled some of its tanks from the city of Homs and released about 800 prisoners."

Meanwhile at the UN Security Council- France wants "serious and rapid work" done on Syria. Which means a no fly zone and "security corridors", as they have pushed for previously.

France believes that the UN Security Council must "seriously and rapidly get to work" on a resolution on the Syrian crisis and the international community must act in view of the situation.


Not to be left out of the melange- Qatar Creates Anti- Syrian Army in Turkey.
Of course in Turkey! Turkey has been destabilizing Syria for months and months now.


Damascus /NationalTurk – Qatar finances and arms radical intervention force based in Turkey to activate it in Syria with the purpose to defeat the government of president Bashar al-Assad.

And one more nation that has been heavily involved in the destabilizing of Syria
A nation that has much to gain from Syria's ruin. The Golan Heights.
A nation, whose media just happens to get an exclusive interview with persons who have allegedly fled Syria and want the "World to Bomb Syria"

In first interview with Israeli media, two" Syrian exiles" urge world to wake up.
Who of course do not give their real names. So they could be anyone, from anywhere.
Or they could be Israelis spinning a story?
I will quote interesting tidbits...

I brought Israeli-made Turkish coffee for my meeting with them. The Mideastern coffee made the atmosphere more relaxed. The cigarettes were lit one after another and a short while later the tension and suspicion evaporated.

Why are you telling your story to the Israeli media? Do you wish to convey a message to the government in Jerusalem?

“We do it so that you bomb Assad’s palace,” Amar quips. “But seriously now: I’m not a captive of the myth that Jews run the world and America, but Israel does have power and influence

"The Syrian opposition and Israel share a joint interest."

"Most Syrians despise Iran"

"I can promise you that the alliance between Syria and Iran that threatens the Middle East will come to an end after Assad is gone"

Knesset Member Isaac Herzog, who is a member of the Knesset’s Defense and Foreign Affairs Committee, met with Syrian exiles in Washington in recent weeks and he suggests that we listen to them.
“In my view, following the Assad era there is a chance for positive processes vis-à-vis Israel as well"

The destruction of Syria, oh so good, for Israel!!

Israel: Religious Extremists attack 8 year old girl

And of course it is more extremism from "God's Chosen". Alleged "chosen" ones that is.
If one believes that kind of tripe?
Just another day for the Israeli extremists-
Just another day in Israel. That "free" and "open society". The only "democracy" in the middle east? Being a typical western nation, a nation of consummate hypocrites the hue and outcry is only due to the fact the extremists attacked a young Israeli child.
Make no mistake the fanatics have attacked others before, verbally and physically.
But these attacks have been on the "gentiles" or the Palestinians
Recall innumerable attacks on mosques, olive groves, Palestinian Children...
Recall a settler hitting Palestinian children with vehicle, with malicious intent?



The Israeli car driven by David Be'eri, the leader of hardline Elad organization trying to ILLEGALLY settle Jews in Silwan, (steal land) charged a group of Palestinian kids, hitting one boy full on and throwing another off his feet. The driver was of course released on bail.
If anyone has any information on whether or not the charges were simply dropped I would like to know? The eight year old child hit by the settler died later of his injuries.


Then there was this attack: Some of you may recall the attack on a female reporter from Australia? Because she used a tape recorder!

"Suddenly the crowd turned on me, screaming in my face. Dozens of angry men began spitting on me.

I found myself herded against a brick wall as they kept on spitting - on my face, my hair, my clothes, my arms.

It was like rain, coming at me from all directions - hitting my recorder, my bag, my shoes, even my glasses.

Big gobs of spit landed on me like heavy raindrops. I could even smell it as it fell on my face.

Somewhere behind me - I didn't see him - a man on a stairway either kicked me in the head or knocked something heavy against me.

I wasn't even sure why the mob was angry with me. Was it because I was a journalist? Or a woman? Because I wasn't Jewish in an Orthodox area? Was I not dressed conservatively enough?

In fact, I was later told, it was because using a tape-recorder is itself a desecration of the Shabbat even though I'm not Jewish and don't observe the Sabbath."

These attacks don't give the Israeli's or their government much of a pause for thought.
Finally however, the religious fanatics have taken it to far? Maybe?

Fury at ultra-Orthodox Jews after girl abused

Previously:
"Ultra-Orthodox men and boys from stringent sects have hurled rocks and eggs at the police and journalists, shouting ''Nazis'' at the security forces and assailing women reporters with epithets like ''whore'' and ''shikse'', a derogatory Yiddish term for a non-Jewish woman or girl."


Presently:
"Naama, (the 8 year old girl), had become terrified of walking to her primary school in Beit Shemesh, a Jewish city between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, after ultra-Orthodox men spat on her, insulted her and called her a prostitute because her modest dress did not adhere exactly to their more rigorous dress code."

These people spat on an 8 year old and called her a prostitute?
Really?

Humbly, my opinion is that none of this outcry over an attack on an Israeli child by Israeli's will change anything. Israel as a nation is far to filled with extremists and extremism. Not entirely. But largely. The extremism is created through the use of manipulation (propaganda) employed by the Israeli government and Israel's media. Of course religion plays a huge, huge role!
These religious extremists are needed and used by the Israeli government for exactly the actions they are undertaking. The need them to steal land from the Palestinians. The settlers were brought into Israel from other nations to do their duty. As their "God" has required of them.

As you sow, so shall you reap

The Nightmare is Now Israel's Too-


Extremist Israeli settlers have recently turned some of their manic wrath on their own government alongside the ever escalating violence against the Palestinians.

The two cannot be compared in terms of magnitude, but the fact that the nightmare Israel had intended solely for the purpose of running the Palestinians off their land has turned on them is an ironic twist nonetheless.

What sets these fresh attacks on Israeli targets apart from the traditional Palestinian assaults is that Palestinians expect this from settlers. Israelis do not. Palestinians are very aware that the settlers have been allowed to squat on Palestinian land with the official seal of approval from the Israeli government. While the most extreme settlers believe Palestine has been given to the Jews by God, Israeli politicians such as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have far less “holy” intentions. For these guys it’s all about expansion, taking land and ridding the “land of Israel” of as many Palestinians as possible.

For years, the method worked like a charm. Israel brought in scores of immigrants who strongly believed that Palestine was theirs and planted them smack in the middle of Palestinian populations. Thousands of acres of land were stolen right under Palestinian owners’ noses for home constructions, settlement infrastructure and, more recently, the separation wall, which was designed in order to protect these illegal settlements. What was worse, the structures came with less than friendly neighbors too.

However, Israel’s government ploy, manifested in the settlers did not pan out exactly as its leaders envisioned. Extremism festered and the end result has been settler groups that will fight the Israeli army tooth and nail before an outpost is removed. Last week, the so-called Hilltop Youth raided the Jordan-Israel border in protest of what they thought was Jordan’s interference in matters concerning the “Temple Mount”, taking over churches there until the embarrassed Israeli military came and kicked them out. Earlier that day, settlers attacked an Israeli army base, pelting their own soldiers with rocks, in protest of a settlement outpost evacuation.

If anything good is to come out of this horrible violence, it would be that Israel and those who support it realize that nothing positive can ever come of illegal settlements on Palestinian land. We have been saying it for ages. The international community has adhered to this opinion as well along with international law that deems their presence illegal and illegitimate. But no one until now has been able to force Israel to reverse its policies. Ironically, if the settlers continue to attack their own people and become more of a burden than a fruitful political tactic, perhaps it will be Israel’s government to finally put its foot down.

Don't look for the Israeli government to "put it's foot down" with the settlers. They will tolerate attacks on 8 year olds. Attacks on the military. Whatever. All for the goal of Greater Israel.


"To your descendants, I shall give this land, from the River of Egypt to the great Euphrates River."

Canada shipping Weapons Grade Uranium to.......

.........the United States- Bomb ready.
Highly enriched Uranium Fuel. Driving it right across the border!

Where is the IAEA?

By the way if you are a bit concerned about this material coming through a town near you....
To bad for you!
The Canadian government feels no need to bother itself over the concerns of the peons
.
Democracy? No way. Fascist Tyranny? Yup!
Let's read the news together...

Weapons-grade uranium is quietly being transported within Canada, and into the United States, in shipments the country's nuclear watchdog wants to keep cloaked in secrecy.

A confidential federal memo obtained through the Access to Information Act says at least one payload of spent, U.S.-origin highly enriched uranium fuel has already been moved stateside under a new Canada-U.S. deal

(at least one load of highly enriched uranium, could be more.)

The shipments stem from the highly publicized agreement signed last year by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and U.S. President Barack Obama, amid fears that nuclear-bomb-making material could fall into the hands of terrorists.

The above italicized part is nonsense, it is spin to justify what is really going on here. Canada is supplying the means to make more bombs to the US. Plain and Simple. The natural question that follows is where will these bombs be placed? In Canada?

The Canadian stash gradually being shipped from Chalk River, Ont., contains hundreds of kilograms of highly enriched uranium -- large enough to make several Hiroshima-sized nuclear bombs.

But even as the radioactive freight travels toward the U.S. border, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission has no plans to hold public hearings or disclose which communities lie along the delivery route.

Why is that you ask?

When asked why public hearings aren't necessary for the uranium deliveries, a commission spokeswoman replied by email: they (Public Hearings )
"are not carried out given the robustness of the packages used and due to the security issues related to the transfers of highly enriched uranium."
Recall above the spin about this material falling into the hands of "terrorists" Which is bullshit.
We then get a total contradiction on why there is no public hearings or disclosure- everything is so secure.
If everything is so secure, why transport this material to the US?
Clearly there is another agenda at play.
If everything is so secure, why do the lying lips use the "terror" angle?
Because it stops any questioning dead in it's tracks!
Except for my impertinence in questioning all obvious bullshit.



What makes these types of shipments particularly galling is Canada's horn blowing on non-proliferation

" Canada is proactive in its non-proliferation efforts. Through the Proliferation Security Initiative, Canada works cooperatively with other countries to prevent illicit trafficking in nuclear, chemical or biological weapons, their means of delivery, and related materials. The Proliferation Security Initiative supports UN Security Council Resolution 1540, the first ever Security Council Resolution on non-proliferation issues."


These covert shipments sure appear to be "illicit trafficking".
Is that why there is so much secrecy surrounding them?

Who controls the Arctic, controls vast resources

Just a quick post. A little something to think about...

If you had doubts that the NATO world army has designs on Russia, as they do the bidding for banksters, big oil and other global robber barons, clear your brain of those doubts. Now.




The Arctic. Resource rich and largely under the control of Russia-

Some of the world's richest reserves of the stuff are buried beneath the beds of the Berents sea, North of Russia and well into the Arctic Circle. It's estimated that this area holds somewhere around a quarter of all the oil reserves in the world.


While this story focus is on the nuclear powered icebreakers employed by Russia in the Arctic, I am more interested in understanding how this will play into the hands of the global elite, as they embark on their Malthusian control of the world's resources.

A wish for Christmas, the same wish all year long

Peace on Earth and Goodwill to All People, Everywhere.



A Baby sleeping, peacefully, perhaps even blissfully and safe.
This is life. Human life.
As humans we need to recognize the sacredness of the gift of life.
We need to honour it and revere it.
For everyone. Everywhere. Everyday.

So, this is my wish. It is the same wish that carries me through everyday of every year.
It is the wish of equality and peace and prosperity, in the truest sense of those words, for all the good people on the planet.

From me to you.
From mine to yours.
Peace, Love and Harmony.

Car bombs in Syria- Intelligence targets linked to Russia?

I come here, as I have since March 24/ 2011, the time I first noticed the seeds of destabilization being planted in Syria. Brought to my attention through nothing more sinister then carefully reading world wide media reporting.
Really, paying attention to the hidden truth glossed over by the overt message, the perception management, if I may?

What made it possible for me to pick up on the beginning of a Western Backed "revolution" in Syria, was simply that I had long ago removed my rose coloured glasses. (idiom)


If you have been reading along then you too have removed your filters. This is good. This is necessary. Vital, really.
But, still not enough people are choosing the reality. The unvarnished truths.
As ugly as they may be, it is necessary to face them.
Keeping all that in mind, let's look at the news today on Syria.
I read with a heavy heart, this news of a "Double suicide car bombing in Damascus"
The main stream media is using the word "twin" I refuse to use that loaded word and all it's connotations and propaganda reinforcements. These are not twin anything.
This is just a western backed/ state sponsored attack of terror conducted with two vehicles.
It is highly doubtful these are "suicide attacks" either. I can't prove this, but, always find this claim totally unsubstantiated. These statements can't be qualified or proven. It is a statement made only to reinforce a specific propaganda message.

Let's get back to the city of Damascus, where we have seen millions come out and support Assad An area that has been largely free of western intervention and terrorism. Largely, but not completely. There was one previous attack, covered here.
The Free Syrian Army took responsibility for an attack and then denied it.

So called Syrian Army "defectors" had attacked the Baath party office. But, then they didn't.
"the FSA had said it fired rocket-propelled grenades at the headquarters of Syria's ruling Baath party."
This attack was way worse, many civilians dead. It would seem looking back at the previous attack, it may have been a practice run for something bigger?


So what was the target?

" coordinated bombings struck a security and intelligence complex"

2 rigged vehicles cause explosion in capital killing several civilians, soldiers, most casualties are civilians.

"Two booby-trapped cars blew up at security sites in Damascus on Friday, killing a number of civilians and soldiers" Lebanon warned al-Qaida had infiltrated from its territory
Security and Intelligence complexes. What does this mean exactly?
Assuming these are complexes vital to the defence of Syria, this may leave Syria more vulnerable to attack.



Who wants to attack Syria?

The US, Israel, France, Britain, Turkey. Collectively known as NATO. All have had a hand in this campaign of destruction since March of this year.

What does the timing of this attack say to us?

“President Sleiman conveyed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad his condemnation of the terrorist attacks today,” read a statement released by Sleiman’s office.

“The timing of the attacks, which coincides with the arrival of the first monitors to Syria, aims to disrupt the Arab solution agreed upon by Syria and the Arab League.”

The timing of the attacks, to coincide with the arrival of Arab monitors, to disrupt the Arab solution.

Who did not want the Arab monitors? I covered that here.

The foreign opposition (western backed stooges, speaking out of both sides of their mouth) did not want the Arab monitors. They want boots on the ground. They want a military NATO bloodbath.

This includes but is not limited to the concocted Syrian National Council.Also, that British intelligence mouth piece group, you know the one based in London- Syrian Observatory of Human Rights and others.

Yet, another angle to the Syrian Bombings!

Damascus bombings target Russian Intelligence

The two powerful bomb blasts that rocked the Syrian capital Damascus on Friday morning were directed against Russian intelligence, the Guardian reported on its website, citing Syrian television.

Russia is at this time denying this report.

To understand the destabilization ongoing in Syria let's go back to an older post-

Low Intensity Operations: Subversion, Insurgency, PeaceKeeping

In that post you can download a book by the same name.

This is the design, the outline, the blueprint for what is being conducted in Syria.
Previously in Libya. Ongoing in Pakistan. Hoping you get the idea?
This is the "how to" of country destruction.
This is why death squads are now roaming the country of Syria
This is why snipers are gunning down civilians as they go about their daily lives.
Subversion.

Frank Kitson- the British counterinsurgency practitioner and theorist, defined
subversion with characteristic directness as “all illegal measures short of the use of armed force taken by one section of the people of a country to overthrow those governing the country at the time, or to force them to do things they do not want to do.”

What is not mentioned in this quote from Kitson, taken from the book, is exactly who or what methods can be employed to encourage these illegal measures, short of using armed forces, to overthrow those governing the country.
Kitson would have been well aware that the countries armed forces would not be accessible to outside illegal measures, thereby requiring armed forces of another kind to be created.
Hence the "Free Syrian Army" or the "Free Libyan Army" spin.

Continuing along on the destabilization of Syria... Isn't it interesting to read Israel's mouthpiece MEMRI putting out this kind of stuff? (Sorry, if I have offended anyone for linking to this site)
None of it is new.
It is just so interesting to see how Israel supports the rise of the Islamists in former secular nations. A ploy that plays so well into Israel's continued game of victimhood.

And one last thing. I promise!

An interview with Webster Tarpley on Guns and Butter- Take an hour and listen.
For all his shortcomings, this is a very good overview on the situation in Syria.

Foreign journalists trip to Syria; religions and ethnicities; Syrian cities of Damascus, Qara, Homs and its Zahra neighborhood and hospital, Baniyas, Tartus, and Beirut, Lebanon; Russian Naval Base; death squads/snipers/ambushes and kidnapping; Syrian Army; foreign intervention.

US "requesting" to nix release of details of bird flu research

In today's news there is curious reporting regarding the US government "asking" medical journals not to publish the details surrounding the creation of a deadly strain of H5N1. You may recall I put this post up about a week or so ago...????

Deadly H5N1 created in Lab: 6.5 million Prepandemic H5N1 vaccines produced

If you didn't read that when I put it up, you should read it before taking in the latest.

At the time the initial news coverage emerged, it was heavily reported this "creation" had come out of Dutch laboratories. Even though that was clearly NOT the case.

When one dug just a little further it became clear this was a joint effort between US & Dutch researchers. But who was in charge? Who was the initiator?
I would argue the initiator of the experimentation is the one trying to control the resulting data.

Fearing terrorist attack, US asks journals to censor flu experiments.
Not the government of the Netherlands. The US government is requesting the censorship.

A government advisory panel, the National Science Advisory Board for Bio security, overseen by the National Institutes of Health, has asked two journals, Science and Nature, to keep certain details out of reports that they intend to publish on the research. The panel said conclusions should be published, but not "experimental details and mutation data that would enable replication of the experiments.The journals, the panel, researchers and government officials have been grappling with the findings for several months.
The Dutch researchers presented their work at a virology conference in September.
Interesting- this lab created virus was not reported on until early December 2011, though it was actually created months prior to the date mentioned in my previous post of September 2011
"This finding shows it's much easier to evolve this virus to an extremely dangerous state where it can be transmitted in aerosols than anybody had recognized, he said. Transmission by aerosols means the virus can be spread through the air via coughing or sneezing.
Transmission by aerosols can also mean aerial spraying. Or dispersal by other means.
Think back to the anthrax MAIL attacks immediately following the 9/11 attacks. The Anthrax had been aerosolized to make it more effective and deadly.
Or one can recall numerous news reports and books containing information of covert weapons testing on unsuspecting populations in major city centres-

Read here for just a snippet of covert testing, via the air, done on humans. Using methods such as spraying or dropping contaminated light bulbs.
Back to the news of the day: Confirmation of my suspicions expressed in first post-
Both studies of the virus - one at the Erasmus Medical Center in the Netherlands, and the other at the University of Wisconsin-Madison were paid for by the National Institutes of Health.
Also known as The US Department of Health and Human Services

The idea behind the research was to try to find out what genetic changes might make the virus easier to transmit.
What genetic changes might make the virus easier to transmit????
The premise of this article is that the 'how to' of this mutation or the means with which this was accomplished should not be published, lest it fall into the hands of "terrorists"
What the article does not mention, but should, is that without the knowledge of the genetic changes made to this virus, there would be no widely known way to stop the spread of the lab created genetically mutated virus.

THEREFORE: The only real conclusion that one can draw from all of this news, previous post, present post and historical realities is that this was created as a potential BIO-WEAPON.
May I remind you that this creation funded by the US would almost certainly be in contravention of the CONVENTION ON THE PROHIBITION OF THE DEVELOPMENT, PRODUCTION AND STOCKPILING OF BACTERIOLOGICAL (BIOLOGICAL) AND TOXIN WEAPONS AND ON THEIR DESTRUCTION
Spin as they like, the facts stand for themselves. The facts show that the US bought and paid for the creation of a genetically altered virus, with bio-weapons potential. By blocking the science behind it, the virus can then be used to target specific countries and it's people via terrorism.
Leaving the targeted nations fumbling around in the dark for something to save themselves.
Additional reading if you are so inclined can be found here or here
The virus was eliminated from most of the 63 countries infected, but it remained endemic in six countries: Bangladesh, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia and Vietnam.
Also:
Researchers are uncertain if this new strain (found in China) - called H5N1-2.3.2.1 - is more virulent in people

Syria: PR Firms create visuals, AL observers and more

Getting back to Syria...

I find this NYT's article interesting. "Syrians find creativity in uprising"

I find the hand of PR firms in these forms of protests that are made for television. Made for the video generation. And wonder at just who paid for these acts to be done?
In one instance where we have a catchy beat and street dancing taking place?!?

"“It was a combination of both a physical and a psychological reaction,” said a young actor, describing how he had cut loose at his very first demonstration in Damascus, the capital."
A young actor who "cut loose"? Must have thought it was an audition for American Idol?

Another time, protesters painted scores of Ping-Pong balls with words like “Leave” and “Freedom” in red and blue ink, and then released them on a hill above Mr. Assad’s house. A video shows them clattering down the cobblestones"

How very eye-catching? Made specifically for video and social media sharing.
Sorry, but this kind of stuff reeks of public relations firms created stunts.
It is done to attract the attention of the infantile mind weaned on a steady stream of junk video.

That bit of mind control/perception management out of the way, let's get down to the real nitty gritty!

Syria is allowing Arab League monitors into the country.
The observers have been given a one month mandate that can be extended on a month by month basis.
Video from RT-





However, the foreign "opposition" is still demanding boots on the ground.

By foreign "opposition" I am of course referring to the Western/NATO backed stooges in
the so called "Syrian National Council" formed in of all places, Turkey.

I have mentioned this group on a number of previous occasions. You can check back through older postings for these mention


Here is a brief bio on just one of these Syrian National Council Members
Dr. Radwan Ziadeh
Visiting Scholar at The Institute for Middle East Studies (IMES) at Elliot School of International Affairs at George Washington University. Before that he was Reagan–Fascell Fellow at National Endowment for Democracy (NED) at Washington D,C and Visiting Scholar at the Center for the Study of Human Rights at Columbia University in New York City, he was also a Visiting Fellow at Chatham House (The Royal Institute of International Affairs) in London and a visiting scholar at Carr Center for Human Rights at Harvard University (2008–2009). In 2007–2008 he was a Senior Fellow at United States Institute of Peace (USIP) in Washington, D.C.

At this point in time it appears that destabilization continues.
Civil strife has broke out in limited areas of the country.
With help from so may outsiders

It is being reported that Syria has passed a law sentencing to stop the flow of weapons to the destabilizers.

"Syria’s President Bashar Assad has signed a law imposing a death penalty on anyone providing weapons or helping to provide weapons to terrorists, the AFP news agency says.

The decree also imposes life imprisonment with hard labor for arms smuggling "for profit or to carry out acts of terrorism," and 15 years' hard labor for arms smuggling for other purposes."


If true , it is more a public relations move then a viable reality. Since most of the weapons are coming into the country, across the border from Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon. This type of law would have limited use

Wheat Belly- Wheat is murder

Wheat is Murder
You think it might be over the top?
You may have to re-think that as you give this interview a listen.
Ties in nicely with previous interviews I have had here with Sally Fallon and the Oiling of America agenda.

William Davis, MD, is a preventive cardiologist whose unique approach to diet allows him to advocate reversal, not just prevention, of heart disease. He is the founder of the Track Your Plaque program. He lives in Wisconsin. Nothing here should be construed as medical advice, but only topics for further discussion with your doctor. He practices cardiology in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. For more information, go to:

Related: You may not be aware that the man who gave us this wheat was awarded a Nobel Prize

That alone should give one pause for thought, as to what was the agenda behind the creation of this high yield wheat?
And who really benefited?

Norman Borlaug- High-yielding wheat varieties and improved farming practices, first developed by Borlaug and his team in Mexico during the 1950s, were introduced into South Asia in the 1960s and may, well be responsible for saving hundreds of millions of people from starvation. Borlaug received the 1970 Nobel Prize for those achievements.

What did he achieve exactly?Maybe he has saved millions from starvation? Or maybe not?

If that was ever the intent?

This high yielding wheat has been linked to multiple diseases. As you will hear.
It almost seems to be the "perfect weapon" to create human sickness and generate profits for the pharmaceutical industry and big food.

Many of you realize that most often this type of research is tied to profiteering, often at the expense of human health.
The "saving from starvation" and "feeding the starving" is a perception management/ propaganda tactic employed by Monsanto, presently

Monsanto is "very concerned" about sustainable agriculture. They even say so on their website.
But then their was the problem with the mass suicides of Indian farmers after being roped in to Monsanto's version of "sustainability". One of so many problems with the hollow claims of saving the starving and sustainability
Their GMO monstrosities have nothing to do with feeding the hungry.
Their GMO monstrosities have everything to do with profits and controlling the food supply.

So, what to make of this creation known as high yield wheat?
Give the interview a listen, in fact there is so much info to digest, you may have to make it two listens.

A Russian Resolution at the UN; Condemnation from the West.

The way the western main stream media represents the news.
I shake my head. Your perception carefully managed, everyday, your entire life.
Think about it!

The western media is reporting that Russia is abandoning Syria with a tough new UN proposal.
Is mother Russia leaving Syria to fend for herself?

When one reads through the news. Actually reads through it....

I can't see how this bit of news is being promoted as abandonment, when it supports the Syrian position that they have a problem of armed destabilization. By condemning the armed destabilizers.

Clearly Hilary Clinton understand that- As earlier news reports, or at least the one from Bloomberg quotes the evil one:


Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in Washington that the U.S. doesn’t support the resolution because it presents “a seeming parity” between the Syrian government, which has used deadly force against opponents, and “the peaceful protesters and other Syrians who are trying to defend themselves.”

The text, which doesn’t call for sanctions in step with the Arab League, isn’t balanced and the language reflects equivalence of violence by the government and by protesters, French Ambassador Gerard Araud told reporters at the UN.

The draft “demands that all parties in Syria immediately stop any violence irrespective of where it comes from.”


The language reflects and equivalence of violence because that is what has always been going on in Syria, armed destabilization: government response

This report out of Kuwait mentions that the Russia draft puts forth the idea that no one should be exempt from punishment for crimes committed in Syria-

LinkNo one should be pardoned for "criminal" acts in Syria -- Russia

Russia confirmed on Friday a Russian-Chinese draft resolution had been put on the table for debate among member states of the United Nations Security Council, stressing "criminal" acts in this country must be punishable.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Alexander Lukashevich described the draft resolution, in a statement, as objective and balanced, urging both the Syrian authorities and the opposition to stop the violence and hold dialogue on the basis of the Arab League initiative.
" The draft resolution condemns practices of the extremists who have been roaming the Syrian regions, he said, stressing no one in Syria should be exempted from punishment for "criminal and provocative practices."

The spokesman called for speedy dispatch of Arab observers to Syria to assess the conditions and tackle unresolved issues concerning the Arab League and Damascus.
He added that the draft resolution must not be understood as implying a call for outside intervention in the country, warning that such a development would deepen instability across the whole Middle East.

Moreover, he renewed support for the Arab League initiative on Syria, but stopped short of addressing direct warnings to the Syrian leadership. He also indicated that the current visit by the Syrian Vice President, Farouk Al-Sharaa, was part of consultations, conducted by Moscow with both the Damascus government and the opposition.

It is also highly unlikely that this is a surprise. As the media portrayal would have you believe.
Nothing done at the UN is ever a surprise.
Quoting from a couple of different sources


The resolution "strongly condemns" violence "coming from all parties.

The draft does not include any sanctions or an arms embargo.

Germany's U.N. ambassador, Peter Wittig, said the Russian draft resolution is "insufficient" but could be improved.

Despite the media spin, the west is not appeased. The move is "insufficient"

From the BBC article:

The draft condemns the violence by both Syria's government and the opposition, but does not mention sanctions.

Western nations said the proposal was not tough enough but that they were prepared to work on the document.

Whatever "prepared to work on it" is supposed to mean?

The fact is Russia put forth condemnation of all parties, with no mention of sanctions or an arms embargo.

Pure politics.

It is being reported that Syrian and Russian officials are holding talks today.

The Syrian vice president arrived in Moscow Friday to talk with Russia's foreign minister about the unrest that has roiled Syria for months, a Russian state news agency reported.

Vice President Farouk al-Sharaa plans to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov "to discuss ways for a peaceful settlement of the conflict in his country," the Itar-Tass news agency reported.

Obviously there is ongoing cooperation between the two nations. Will we be seeing Russian peacekeepers in Syria? Or something along that line?

The loud mouth John Baird again told Canadians to get out of Syria.


But, not immediately.

"Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said Ottawa has “directed officials to undertake a voluntary evacuation over the next month”


Should this be taken to mean that in a months time things will really heat up?

Another Mosque set ablaze by the Jewish "Extremists"

A follow up to yesterday's post!
You may wonder why I quote-end quote the word "extremist" regarding the followers of Judaism that perpetuate these kinds of attacks?
So I will explain, the attacks are not rare, they are the norm.
Therefore it is hard to think of this as the work of a few bad apples, when by all appearances these type of activities go on day in, day out. For sixty years now.

Mosques burned, homes demolished, olive groves burnt, children killed.
Old ladies shot. Schools damaged. Excrement smeared walls. Cheese factories bombed.
Jews only roads. Collective punishment.
Link
Rather then the work of a few "extremists" what many, but not all Israelis do presently and have done to the Palestinians previously seems the norm, rather then the exception.
Therefore I find this news presented as the work of a few "bad apples" Not realistic.

Another Palestinian mosque torched in West Bank

Vandals set fire to another mosque in the West Bank on Thursday and defaced it with Hebrew graffiti. The Hebrew words for "war" and "Mitzpe Yitzhar" were painted in red on a wall

This one was being used by worshippers! -
As reported by Ynet

"At 4 am, worshipers discovered part of the mosque was on fire and were luckily able to extinguish it quickly. The building sustained light damage, mostly to its carpets and chairs. No injuries were reported."


This picture is from the mosque torching posted on yesterday



Some of the slogans read: "Price tag," "Kahane was right," "Muhammad is dead," and "marked for razing."

"Kahane was right"- Wow, talk about your fanatical extremist type

Jewish 'extremists' attack mosque

Be sure to catch my previous post and leave me a thought or two!
That said, this latest news story, only a few hours old and not getting widespread coverage, just begs to be posted.

pic borrowed from article

Jews attack Mosque

Jewish extremists on Wednesday tried to torch an old mosque in Jerusalem, as Israel reopened a ramp leading to the Al-Aqsa mosque compound, whose closure sparked Muslim anger.

The overnight attack on the disused mosque (incorrect) in downtown west Jerusalem saw unknown attackers try and set the building alight and daub its exterior walls with racist anti-Arab slogans written in Hebrew.

It was the latest in a slew of so-called "price tag" incidents - revenge attacks by Jewish extremists which generally target Palestinians and Arabs.

The attack targeted the Nebi Akasha mosque, which dates back to the 13th century and had not been used as a place of worship since Israel’s creation in 1948. The city council currently uses the building as a storage facility.


In other words the ancient mosque, which belongs to the Palestinian people, is not used because Israel has disallowed or barred it's use by the Palestinians and commandeered it for their own purpose.

In what can can only be seen as an attempt to wipe the history of Palestinian people off the map. Looks that way.

Reading further through this article it is obvious I am not the only one that get's what is going on.

"The destruction of the antiquities, in this case probably by Israelis, is part of the process of erasure of ‘the other’ - of everything that doesn’t suit the extremist and one-dimensional ideology of certain Israeli groups,"


Of course, it isn't just this mosque. There is an ongoing problem with attacks by Israeli Jews on Palestinians

Overnight, there were three more price tag attacks in the northern West Bank where Palestinian cars were torched in three separate villages and Hebrew graffiti found nearby, the Israeli military and Palestinian witnesses said.

Deadly H5N1 created in Lab: 6.5 million Prepandemic H5N1 vaccines produced

Coincidence or something else?
You might have caught this news from the last week or so?
The news about the man made pandemic flu virus. Very deadly. Completely lab created.
Done in September of this year. That is September 2011.
Three months ago.

Two teams of scientists have independently constructed a deadly strain of flu.


Before we get into reading this article, let's ask a couple of questions.

What was the agenda behind this research?
Who paid for this research to be done?
Let's not kid ourselves, scientists do this kind of work because someone is paying them to do it! Who? Why?
And one more question, were the two teams of scientists really working "independently"?
If so, that is quite a coincidence.
Regular readers here may recall me saying, a number of times, I am not a coincidence theorist.
Did the two teams have a common financier? Were they working competitively against one another? Or were they working together from labs that have differing capabilities?
I wish to point out that most of the news coverage has made mention of only the Dutch team.

"A research team led by Ron Fouchier at Rotterdam's Erasmus Medical Centre said in September it had created a mutant version of the H5N1 bird flu virus that could for the first time be spread among mammals."

The lack of coverage of American involvement is curious.
Makes me wonder if this was indeed a collaborative effort, led by the research at Rotterdam's Medical Centre.

Back to the article from Scientific American-

Epidemiologists have long debated the pandemic potential of H5N1, a.k.a. avian bird flu. On one hand, the virus spreads too inefficiently between humans to seem like much of a threat: it has caused less than 600 known cases of human flu since first emerging in 1997. On the other hand, when it does spread, it can be pretty deadly: nearly 60 percent of infected humans died from the virus. For years now, the research has suggested that any mutations that enhanced the virus’s ability to spread among humans, would simultaneously make it less deadly. But in a recent batch of as-yet-unpublished studies, two scientists - Yoshihiro Kawaoka from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and Ron Fouchier of Erasmus Medical Center, in the Netherlands – have shown otherwise
"For years now, the research has suggested that any mutations that enhanced the virus’s ability to spread among humans, would simultaneously make it less deadly."

And that is what makes sense. Virus's have a goal to live. Call it a hard wiring, whatever. Virus's do what they do. They wish to thrive, survive and get around. Virus's can't do that if all their hosts die. Therefore the virus's ability to survive and thrive would be contingent on it's host survival.

The fact that these mutations could be created in laboratory conditions does not imply that this would ever occur naturally. These mutations were created under very specific conditions.

Fouchier initially tried to make the virus more transmissible by making specific changes to its genome, using a process called reverse genetics; when that failed, he passed the virus from one ferret to another multiple times, a low-tech and timehonored method of making a pathogen adapt to a new host.

After 10 generations, the virus had become “airborne”:


After ten generations.
At which time, in real life and quite naturally, humans would have already built up natural immunities.And the virus may have mutated in another direction completely.

So, what is this really about? One if left wondering.
Of course bio-warfare comes to mind.
Or simply corporate malfeasance? Anything to make a buck.
Or both? Perhaps population reduction? Maybe all of it!
Let's look at the corporate malfeasance and making a buck agenda-

Novartis is all ready and raring to go at their new vaccine facility in North Carolina, reported yesterday.


Novartis says cell-based flu vaccine facility ready to produce

And what to my wondering eyes should appear?
Definitely not a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer!


I am going to bold and enlarge this so you simply cannot miss it!

Novartis's new cell-culture based influenza vaccine factory in North Carolina has begun making a prepandemic H5N1 flu vaccine and is ready to start producing vaccines for a real pandemic when needed, the company and federal health officials announced yesterday.

The facility in Holly Springs, N.C., billed as the first of its kind in the United States, was dedicated yesterday after a long testing process.

As part of the testing, last week the plant produced two lots of "prepandemic" H5N1 flu vaccine for the Strategic National Stockpile, and another lot will be completed this week, for a total of 6.5 million doses, said Liz Power, a spokeswoman for Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics, Cambridge, Mass.


Does that make anyone else go Hmmmm
?

Scientist create a deadly version of the H5N1 flu virus, September 2011 and Novartis is producing a pre-pandemic H5N1 vaccine in December.

Oh, well I guess that is just another coincidence..........

Syria- The beat goes on: Part 3

We are going to take a look at the Syrian situation from a number of different angles today.

Let me first open with a report from DEBKA- I am aware this is a source that is replete with spin, and disinfo. Just like the main stream media.

That said, this bit of news is quite plausible- The US is shifting troops from Iraq to the Jordanian border with Syria.

The spin from DEBKA ,which is ridiculous, is this is being done in preparation of Syria's attacking Jordan.
Syria will not attack Jordan.

The scenario that will play out will be that Syria will defend itself from an attack launched via Jordan. Not the other way around.
Jordan and the NATO war criminal crowd will spin this the way DEBKA is spinning, but, that won't be the reality. It will be newspeak. Or doubletalk.

Keeping in mind that Jordan has been covertly attacking Syria for some months now. Since March of this year, Jordan has supplied destabilizers, both persons and weapons.

In July 2011 it was reported US Special Ops were in Jordan ostensibly participating in a "warrior" competition.



For the first time in its history two joint teams, consisting of soldiers from 2nd Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) and Jordanian Special Operations Forces, competed in the 3rd Annual Best Warrior Competition at the King Abdullah II Special Operations Center, Hashemite Kingdom in Jordan, May 8-12.


This first time ever competition to place May 8-12/2011. Just two months after destabilization via Jordan began in March.
When did US Special Forces arrive there? Were they there prior to this date? Did they leave after this competition? Inquiring minds want to know?

This past paragraph makes me think there is much more to this special op warrior competition then meets the eye.

USSF Soldiers were in Jordan as part of a Joint Combined Exchange Training exercise, or JCET, with Jordanian forces. These types of exercises are designed to provide training opportunities for American Special Forces in countries that the forces may one day have to operate in, as well as providing training opportunities for the armed forces of the host country.


Clearly there have been US Special forces on the ground in Jordan, for many months now.
How many of these US Special forces, along with Jordanian Forces have been infiltrating the Syrian border, killing civilians and Syrian soldiers for how long now???

All question that beg for answers.

Back to the DEBKA story- The gist of the story being that the US is shifting troops out of Iraq and into Jordan is quite possible. Likely being done to bolster the contingency of special ops already in place and laying the groundwork for further assaults on Syria.

You can check back to previous posts where I have mentioned that as a distinct and real possibility.

Let's skip round to Turkey. And their Alawite population.

In Antakya, a cosmopolitan Turkish city on the border with Syria, the Alawite minority has taken sides against Ankara in staunch defense of Bashar al-Assad – dreading their fate if he is toppled.

“Everything is calm in the (Syrian) cities. There is nothing in (the northwestern town of) Latakia; the people who come here say that they are living normally,” claimed Suheyla Kocak, an actress in the Antakya municipal theatre which has staged numerous plays in Syria.

“Where are the incidents happening? In remote areas, where people are ignorant and where they can easily lose their heads. It is in these types of places where they are fighting and killing each other.”(correct)

“Millions of people are on the street to support (Assad’s) reforms,” added Ali Yeral. (correct)

“If Assad is overthrown, it is clear that there will be a massacre of Alawites,” said Yeral. (correct)


There will be a massacre of Alawites and other religious minorites, such as Christians, who have also expressed great fear at what is going on in Syria. Not fear of Assad. Fear of the Islamists that the West is arming. This slaughter via civil war is exactly what NATO is working for.

“The Muslim Brotherhood are the ones who are creating all of these incidents,” he claimed.

Not alone, they have had help.

Meanwhile the Israeli press is crying for the aid of the US. And of course American blood to be spilled for the benefit of Israel

Jerusalem Post- No Substitute for US Leadership on Syria

Tony Badran – a fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, (another stink tank) the Washington think tank that organized the event – said neither the Arab League nor Turkey wield the necessary military or diplomatic clout to end a nearly nine-month government crackdown said to have killed at least 4,000 people.

Only the US can do this – it can’t be outsourced,” Badran said. “The US acting like a human-rights NGO just won’t cut it.”


Andrew Tabler, a Syria expert at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said military operations in the country would present difficulties not encountered in this year’s NATO intervention in Libya.

“Unlike Libya, Syria has a massive air defense system. The US could handle it, but not the Turks,” he said
Indeed, send the American kids and maybe the Canadian kids to die for Israel.



One more stop back in Turkey- Scenarios for Turkey's involvement

The first scenario
-

Unilateral military intervention is unlikely. A core dimension of Turkey’s policy towards Syria is the formation of an anti-Assad chorus. The implication is that Turkey is trying to avoid taking unilateral action against Syria, preferring instead to coordinate with the Arab League, NATO, and other concerned actors.


Let's look at the second scenario-

Turkey could intervene to set up a secure buffer zone inside Syria, or participate in the implementation of “humanitarian corridors,” to help civilians affected by the unrest in Syria. If such a zone is created, the Turkish military would guard it. While the border between Turkey’s Hatay province and Syria offers a probable site for this initiative the area, is, in fact, highly sensitive because the border is patrolled by the Syrian military. While the proposal falls short of military intervention, humanitarian convoys might need armed protection supported, ideally, by a UN resolution, should Damascus refuse to accept such a proposal.

Turning these plans into actions is tightly linked to certain developments in Syria, one of which is inter-sectarian violence. (fomenting civil war)

Recall the killing of the Kurdish leader? Done to foment inter-sectarion violence.

Not done by Assad or the military.

Think of the Alawite concerns mentioned above?

The third scenario for Turkey's involvement revolves around sanctions-

The latest sanctions recommended by the Arab League could possibly pave the way for the emergence of a resolution to the humanitarian issue in Syria. Advocates of the decision say these sanctions are specifically targeted at the regime.(Bullshit, sanctions are always done to target the populace) They hope the population will be able to cope. However, the economic package of sanctions will certainly affect Syria’s citizens and could develop into a humanitarian problem that will force a call for international intervention. In this regard, countries like Russia and China that currently threaten to veto resolutions against the Syrian regime may come under pressure to comply with international obligations. Should that happen other foreign powers will have the authority to implement “humanitarian corridors,” or create buffer zones.

Ambassadors: Tools of destabilization- Russia and Syria

The US meddling in Russia.
The US meddling in Syria

A key components of the meddling in both nations? The Ambassadors.
I have previously covered Ambassador Robert Ford and his role in the destabilization of Syria, also noting his previous death squad connections.

And wasn't it curious.... that right after Ambassador Ford's return to Syria there was an oil pipeline explosion in Homs!




In July there were two similar blasts on Syrian pipelines
If you read this post, you may recall this?

Not forgetting that Ambassador Ford has been a previous visitor to Homs!


Ford even visited Homs and Hama, the hotbeds of protest in the country, and held a meeting with the leaders of the opposition after Friday prayers. The violence in these towns, where the opposition has a following, usually peaks on Fridays after the afternoon prayers.

Wow, Ambassador Ford back in Syria and kaboom!

So what of the Ambassador to Russia?

McFaul confirmed as Russia ambassador

The Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee has confirmed Michael McFaul as the US Ambassador to Russia.
Reports that McFaul would succeed John Beyrle as Russia ambassador were published in May.
President Obama made an official statement to this effect in September.
Prior to his appointment, McFaul worked for the US National Security Council as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director of Russian and Eurasian Affairs.

Michael McFaul is the former director of CDDRL and deputy director of FSI at Stanford University. He also is the Peter and Helen Bing Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, where he co-directs the Iran Democracy Project, as well as Professor of Political Science at Stanford University.
He is also a non-resident Senior Associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. He serves on the Board of Directors of the Eurasia Foundation, the Firebird Fund, Freedom House, the International Forum for Democratic Studies of the National Endowment for Democracy, and the International Research and Exchange Board (IREX).
Well connected? It appears that way.

The Firebird Fund really caught my eye. You see the Firebird is a component of a Russian Folk/Fairy Tale.

Always associated with a quest or a hero's journey.
In Michael McFaul's world the Firebird Fund is an equity investment firm, specializing in the Russian emerging market.
Talk about having a vested interest in the destabilization of Russia, for profits. As if there is any other real reason for that to happen. It's always about the money.
Tony Cartalucci had done a piece in October, noting, Michael McFaul's propensity for agitation
A very worthy read and I am unsurprised to notice that Ambassador Ford garners a special mention.
In this piece again by Tony Cartalucci a very familiar name is mentioned and another equity/investment house.
US Caught Meddling in Russian Elections!

UK financier operative Sergei Magnitsky of Hermitage Capital Mangement, an enterprise that while operating primarily in Russian markets, maintained its headquarters in the Cayman Islands.
Magnitsky was arrested and imprisoned over tax evasion and tax fraud, and would die of illness while in prison. The US and UK would predictably trump up the circumstances surrounding the death of Magnitsky, with corporate foundation-funded Redress (page 28) of the UK submitting a “reportto the UN in yet another classic example of leveraging issues of “human rights” against a target nation to serve Western interests. This is but a taste of what is to come with McFaul presiding over the next leg of Anglo-American global destabilization.

You may recall a post at the Suspicious Deaths blog- The Magnitsky Report



You may want to give that one a refresher read!

Twisted, sordid and twisted!
