Syria on my mind- all the latest that you and I can stand

I don’t know that Syria is ever far from my thoughts these day?
I often think about the ordinary people and how they are faring?
Tozz, often comes to mind.
He was gracious, kind and always appreciative of the people and the news he could get at the blog.
 I, was happy for his presence.

If it wasn't for lies and spin, I  don't know what would fill the news wires and print. Never mind the social media. So today we will sort through lies, lies and more lies

More ballistic missiles have allegedly been fired. Scuds for the masses.

NATO announces the firing along with the usual round of condemnation...
"shows utter disregard for the lives of the Syrian people."
Compared to all the regard displayed by NATO for the people of the planet?
I laugh at the absurdity and shake my head in dismay.

What are these alleged scud firings, if they are taking place, striking?

"Allied intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance assets detected the launches," a NATO official told CBSNews.com on Thursday, adding that the alliance has "no precise information regarding the impact area, or information on casualties or damage caused."

There have been no reports from Syrian opposition groups or rebel militias on the ground of ballistic missiles landing in northern Syria. Opposition members are generally eager to expose the Assad regime's use of heavy weaponry
NATO has no information regarding impact or casualties or damage... The 'rebels' have NOT reported on missiles landing and there is no video of the strikes?  Highly suspect.
What should common sense tell us?
It should tell us, that no Scuds have been fired and that this is just another NATO lie.

If one lie  doesn't succeed. Lie, lie and lie again

Iran may try to grab Damascus's enriched uranium' -Jerusalem Post
Yah!. Israeli propaganda... booga booga

Odd thing about the JP article the links in the article don’t link to what / who is being creditted as the source for this information?
Were the links included knowing most people won’t check?
To create a perception of legitimacy?

Haaretz not wanting to be left out spins the news as well
West fears Iran will try to seize Syria's uranium stockpile. 
Click that link to see what you get... I will give you a hint. It 's an error page

I can only conclude that this entire 'story'  regarding enriched uranium has zero credibility

                                               https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQQzgEnif7Vrck2mSThWAnnVHnSiNA2p7iUYTm5s_NhcX0n683ZbQ

Reuters had a big article the other day.

Interesting the contortions the writers undertook to twist the piece into something it wasn’t.
 Let’s muck through the mire ....Aleppo misery eats at rebel support:

Reality-  Misery in terrorist held parts of Aleppo ensure the Syrians revile the NATO mercs
Read on.....
A middle-aged couple, well dressed, shuffle over to press a folded note, furtively, into the hand of a foreign reporter.

It is the kind of silent cry for help against a reign of fear that has been familiar to journalists visiting Syria over the past two years. Only this is not the Damascus of President Bashar al-Assad but rebel-held Aleppo.(Not the entire city. The rebels hold no major cities)

Journalists visiting Syria during this time of NATO destabilization have no doubt witnessed a lot of fear brought on  the Syrians via the covert ops. Perhaps finally they have to address it while spinning for NATO as best as they can?


The note read "We used to live in peace and security until this malicious revolution reached us and the Free Syrian Army started taking bread by force," the unidentified couple wrote. "We ask God to help the regime fight the Free Syrian Army and terrorism - we are with the sovereignty of President Bashar al-Assad forever."

And so the spinning begins...but we will ignore that and get to the important points

“their sentiments are far from rare in Aleppo”
Reality: Residents of Aleppo hate the NATO mercs
In large areas (vague, intentionally so) that have been under rebel control for six months or more complaints are getting louder about indiscipline among the fighters, looting and a general lack of security and necessities like running water, bread and electricity
“Recognizing that mistrust, rebel units have set up command and policing structures they see forming a basis of institutions”
“That these new institutions have had little practical impact on often rival rebel groups is ominous”
Ominous? As if the whole NATO/GCC/Israel campaign of misery and destruction has not be "ominous"?

And why  would the ordinary Syrians mistrust the rebels/freedom fighters? Reality and the most obvious answer?  These are not freedom fighters/nor are they rebels as in rebelling! They are not bringing freedom and  these fighters are not Syrians.
“While relations grow testier between the rebels and Aleppines, for whom many fighters harbor some disdain”

Many fighters harbour disdain for the citizens of Aleppo. Clearly. These fighters harbour disdain for Syrians in general hence the massacres these bastards have visited upon the Syrians.

As is obvious and should not need to be restated and yet I will to drive the dam point home. The "fighters' are not bringing freedom. Just destruction and oppression and they resent the Syrians because the fighters are not Syrians. Therefore it is easy to resent them. Therefore, it is easy for these people to kill the Syrians

"There has been a lot of corruption in the Free Syrian Army's battalions - stealing, oppressing the people - because there are parasites that have entered the Free Syrian Army,"

"The Free Syrian Army has lost its popular support," They never had any.

Hunger and insecurity are key themes wherever Aleppines gather this winter.

Oh look the bad apple narrative! In this case the “bad seed” narrative
                                                   http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_mHBQJHNtqAU/SpXweTLRHZI/AAAAAAAAGg0/JHbQ0jtscRU/s320/RottenApple.jpg
 Second bad apple pic(k) today- First one here. The UN and the ruse of a Mercury Ban (sort of)
In case you missed it?
"There are some brigades that loot from the people, and they are fundamentally bad seeds"


But FSA needs those bad seeds

"Are we going to be fighting Bashar and them?" Tlas asked of untrustworthy new fighters. "There's a lot of that in Aleppo ... We cannot reject them. It's not the time for that. Those are the bad seeds."

The article goes on to attempt to spin this all as an unfortunate misunderstanding. It isn’t.
It is an intentional campaign to destroy the cohesion of Syrian society.
Therefore it is not a coincidence, unless you’re a coincidence theorist, that the group leading the fight in Damascus, Syria is none other then the newly designated terrorist group Jabhat al Nusra

Nusra Front reportedly leading Syrian rebels’ fight for key Damascus area
An Islamist rebel group that the United States has listed as a terrorist organization has taken the lead in fighting in Damascus, according to residents who’ve recently fled the violence there.

The reports that the Nusra Front, which the Obama administration last month declared to be an affiliate of al Qaida in Iraq, is at the forefront of the fighting in Syria's capital

Like Aleppo, Damascus is being targeted by terrorists. Western/GCC/Israeli sponsored terrorists.

  1. Hi Penny,
    I know you are an avid watcher on goings on in the Middle East - maybe not my first area of expertise but came across some interesting connections in the course of my wanderings. You might like to take a look. Best wishes,

    1. Hi Carol
      thanks for stopping by
      I stopped by quickly and saw articles pertaining to a state for the Kurds
      And the assassination is France
      Which seems to have Erdogans knickers all in a knot?
      Is he really upset? After having watched the whole Israel/Turkey sideshow?
      Or is someone pressuring Erdogan?
      That thought crossed my mind?
      Lest he get's cold feet about his part in the ruin of Syria?
      Or in case he thinks about cozying up to Russia
      So many angles to play..
      will get over to take a better look when I have more time
      regards and thanks
      Pen


      Something the US and Israel have been working on for sometime.

    2. Hi Pen, Yes there are all sorts of things going on about the Kurdish issue. Turkey and Erdogan are quite difficult to call at the moment - there have been all sorts of competing theories flying about. It could be pressure on Erdogan true. Turkey could still go in either direction though.

      If you do get the chance please take a look at the 'Alternate Futures 2025' documentation from the US War College in 1996. I know its a bit of a read but its predictions are worth looking at. I would be interested in your take on it from the M.E. perspective.

      Anyway don't work too hard!

      Kind regards,

      Carol x
