US Pushes War, Blackmails Russia & Is Generally Disingenuous

In other words, the usual.

Russia Rejects U.S., Europe Plan to Enforce Syrian UN Resolution
Russia rejected a U.S. and European plan to include enforcement in a United Nations Security Council resolution on Syrian chemical weapons’ disarmament, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

Western actions are “irresponsible and unprofessional,” Lavrov said in an interview with Russia’s Channel One published on the Foreign Ministry’s website today. They want to “drive through a resolution based on force” and that blames President Bashar al-Assad for everything, Lavrov said.

The U.S., France and the U.K. want a resolution next week that provides enforcement to the terms of the Geneva accord between the U.S. and Russia. Efforts to agree on a resolution have encountered headwinds from Russia, Assad’s strongest ally, which opposes any measure that alludes to a threat of force.

The Security Council is set to negotiate on a resolution next week, as world leaders travel to New York for the opening of the UN General Assembly.
The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said Sept. 20 it had “received an initial disclosure from the Syrian government of its chemical weapons program.” A Sept. 14 U.S.-Russian agreement, which averted an American military strike on Assad’s government, called for an itemization of Syria’s poison gas stocks by yesterday.
So, why after Syria complies does the OPCW play coy?
The executive council of the chemical weapons organization in The Hague, which would oversee Syria’s disarmament, said Sept. 20 it has postponed a meeting on Syria that was scheduled for tomorrow, (Monday Sept.23/13) aiming for a new date in the middle of next week.
Why did the OPCW "postpone’ a meeting"aiming for a date in the middle of next week’?
It would seem there was political pressure, in the form of thumbscrews, from the NATO allied warmongers.
How else to explain the postponement of such an important meeting at such a critical time.

“Our American partners are trying to blackmail us,” Lavrov said. The U.S. is saying that “unless Russia accepts to adopt this resolution under Chapter 7, we will stop the work of the OPCW in the Hague.”

“This is absolutely contrary to what we agreed with John Kerry --- first the decision of the OPCW and only then a resolution in the UN Security Council to support it, but not under Chapter 7,” Lavrov said.

Russia is also resisting any attempt to assign blame to Assad’s regime for an Aug. 21 chemical attack that the U.S. says killed 1,400 people, including more than 400 children.

The U.S. and France hadn’t presented any evidence to Russia that Syria government forces carried out the Aug. 21 chemical attack, Lavrov said in the interview. “All information they have released so far to back up their claim hasn’t been convincing,” he said.
Of course, I concur completely. The information regarding Ghouta is absolutely not convincing at all!
Meanwhile, the Russian embassy was shelled and three people were injured.
 Three diplomats were injured in a mortar shell targeting the Russian embassy in Damascus on Sunday as Syria promptly handed over a preliminary report of its chemical weapons in fulfillment of its commitment made earlier.

In the mortar attack, one shell was fired by militants in the hotspot district of Brazeh onto the Russian embassy compound.
The Russian embassy in Damascus has been targeted several times by the opposition militants who are trying to overthrow Assad's government.

Russia is ready to send a limited number of troops to Syria
Russia is ready to send a limited number of troops and observers to Syria as part of a multi-national force to guarantee security of the international experts on chemical weapons, Russia's Foreign Minister said Sunday.


  1. why is OPCW playing coy?because its head(chairperson) is a former turkish ambassador tied to akp party!
    (TURKISH FRAUD)Ahmet Üzümcü
    the director general for opcw is an ex turkish ambassador,wich makes him hardly impartial or unbias to chair opcw,not that it matters now,in fact it places him directly ina position to strengthen zionist turkish gov's campaign of propaganda aimed at inciting an illegal invasion and occupation of Syria..

    1. thanks Ali!

      I did not know that and imagine my non surprise to see an ex turkish ambassador so close to the US and Israel
      It figures!

  2. Russia also sent a 2nd guided missle cruiser late last week.

    Russia also just experienced another nuclear sub fire which follows the one last year, itself followed by a US sub fire for which a low level ensen pled guilty of arson. That sub was eventually scrapped. The Russian sub a year ago was alleged to have nukes aboard.

    In early September the Russians had another bulova test failure from an slbm platform. That failure reportedly occured a few seconds after flight. That test failure came three days after the reported unannounced us and Israeli med missle test.

    The Russia space platform has been plagued by launch failure going back to the glonass satellites, Mars probe and more recently coms rocketry. And then there was the asteriod hitting close by the Russian nuke facilities in the urals.

    After the asteriod hit the same Russian nationalist who accused the us of using high powered radar to interfere with Russian launches proclaimed the asteriod a us weapons test gone astray.

    So are all these launch failures including the bulova - recall the Norway spiral was explained as a Russian missle test gone astray - related in some form or fashion.

    1. I have thought about the Norway spiral a number of times over the past couple months?
      A missile fail or something else entirely


  3. no surprize how the US was going to spin this. I think I have mentioned here more than once the game plan was to get Syria into the 'Failure to Comply' trap as they did with Iraq. very little change in their playbook.

    The interesting part is the playbook is known by opposing leaders. We may soon see the west was given some slack intentionally and they have been led into a trap.

    I had a suspected soon after the talk of CW being forfited that Russia would want troops in Syria. No real intel to show this, just was a hunch. Maybe to suck more radicals from the caucus region and get their own chance to shoot at them from an area that is already damaged. Maybe to dare the west to lob tomahawks at them to justify the use of their fleet in the med. Maybe to facilitate the transfer of more advanced weaponry. Who knows.

    We do know that if you put a few thousand Russian troops or a mix of many nations under a UN label in Syria, the failure to comply in chief(Odummer) will have to think twice about pushing any buttons.

    Thanks again Penny. Here is one I know you will enjoy.

    Technocracy with Andrew Gavin Marshall

    just thought I would leave this little titbit someone sent my way.

    While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, who's hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as our president.

    The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Obama is a 'Post Turtle.'

    Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a 'post turtle' was.

    The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road
    and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle.'

    The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain.

    "You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he's elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dimwit put him up there to begin with."

    1. Yah, the movement of Russian troops and others into Syria would be awkward for Obomba
      It was good the way Lavrov called the US out for the dishonesty
      get it right out in the open

      The post turtle- so fitting! I laughed quietly because hubby is sleeping and under the weather
      thanks :)
      And I will read Mr Marshall- he usually has some good things to say
      some interesting insights etc

  4. Pakistan attack

    1. hey anon
      went back and looked at the comment and read a bit about the targeting of the Christian church... that seems oh so familiar
      but then it is TTP
      the same TTP that sent fighters into Syria
      so.......that should give us an idea of who was really behind the bombing
      NATO/Israel since the TTP are there men
      Is it because of the drone strike complaints
      Is it to cause terror and division
      Is it to make a distraction and kidnap the nuclear scientists
      Is it all three and more? -thats what I would think
      and you?

  5. Romanian protests against Canadian project enter fourth week

    "Some 15,000 people gathered in the capital of Bucharest on Sunday to voice their opposition to the plans.

    “What worries me is that they will destroy nature and our heritage, the Roman-era mining galleries. But we will continue to resist, three weeks have passed and we are still here,” said Nicoleta Bogza, a protester.

    Demonstrators are against plans by Canadian company Gabriel Resources to mine in the village of Rosia Montana in the region of Transylvania.

    Critics warn that the project would damage the environment, as the Canadian company plans to destroy four mountain tops and wipe out three outlying villages in the area.

    The project would also involve using an average of 12,000 tons of cyanide a year to mine, which is 12 times more than the amount used in the mining industry in the entire European Union."

    I wonder who the owners of this company are...

    вот так

  6. "I wonder who the owners of this company are..."

    I looked very quickly and see the mining is for gold and silver, but, not sure who owns it?
