Patraeus’ “resignation”- An affair? As if !!
More likely Benghazi and the death/murder/assassination of Ambassador Stevens
“But the timing of Petraeus’ resignation becomes more interesting once one learns that that he was scheduled to testify under oath next week before power House and Senate committees regarding the Benghazi consulate.”
Will he still testify? Or, now that he has “resigned”, can he walk away from the mess that the US/CIA was involved with in Benghazi??
Freethinker left a link to the interview with Bashar Assad. Hope you watched it. If not see below. Thanks Freethinker!
RT: Why has Turkey, which you call a friendly nation, become a foothold for the opposition?
BA: Not Turkey, but only Erdogan’s government in order to be precise. Turkish people need good relations with the Syrian people. Erdogan thinks that if Muslim Brotherhood takes over in the region and especially in Syria, he can guarantee his political future, this is one reason. The other reason, he personally thinks that he is the new sultan of the Ottoman and he can control the region as it was during the Ottoman Empire under a new umbrella. In his heart he thinks he is a caliph. These are the main two reasons for him to shift his policy from zero problems to zero friends.
RT: There has been many times…not you but the government forces have been accused for many times of war crimes against your own civilians, do you accept that the government forces have committed war crimes against their own civilians?
BA: The second point, if you have an army that committed a crime against its own people, this is devoid of logic because the Syrian Army is made up of Syrian people. If you want to commit a crime against your people, then the army will divide, will disintegrate. So, you cannot have a strong army while you are killing your people. Third, the army cannot withstand for twenty months in these difficult circumstances without having the embrace of the public in Syria. So, how could you have this embracement while you are killing your people?! This is a contradiction. So, this is the answer.
Another interview that compliments the one above.
From Guns and Butter
"US/NATO Humanitarian Intervention In Syria: Toward A Regional War?" with Michel Chossudovsky. What the destabilization of Syria is really about; Responsibility To Protect (R2P); violence in Syria; the rebels, who they are, who supports and trains them and where; Free Syrian Army; role of the United Nations; Islamization of the Middle East as an intelligence operation; role of Israel; effect of sanctions; media disinformation.
Though this is an encore presentation, it is still very, very relevant.

In “response” to mortar fire, Israel has fired on Syria. Thanks anonymous!
You may recall me making mention of this chicanery in an earlier post?
The chicanery continues :Israel reports 'direct hit' on target in Syria, stoking fear of widening conflict
An Israeli tank struck a Syrian army vehicle Monday.
On Sunday, Israel fired a "warning shot" into Syria in response to the shelling.
Two consecutive days Israel has struck Syria...... Turkey redux.
What will tomorrow bring?
