President Barack Obama’s decision arming Syria’s rebels deepens U.S. involvement in a regional proxy war that is being fought along sectarian lines, pitting Sunni against Shiite Muslims, threatening the stability of Syria’s neighbors and the world as well as heightening U.S. tensions with Russia.

Following last week’s chemical attack, the West has engineered a media campaign to facilitate a military incursion, says Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. The U.S. has its hands full with its own domestic problems, but want to push a third front on U.S. military involvement (with Afghanistan still on-going). Sec Kerry says the chemical agent evidence is indisputable – but that was the same argument that Bush II used to unilaterally enter Iraq which was patently false. If any U.S. mobilization of forces is considered, the U.S. needs more than Kerry’s word. Despite the tragic moral dimension, we do not have a good handle on the source of the chemical killing and source in never mind assisting the jihadists. The US, UK and France is convinced that Assad used chemical weapon. This sounds like a repeated lie to me – much like of the propaganda minister Goebbels, who believe that thousand times repeated lie (here about chemical weapons being used by the legal Syria government of Assad) will become true.The experts in Syria have the mandate to determine if chemical weapons were used, and if so, which ones. The the final decision about the perpetrator must be based on this evidence and all the analytical and factual materials available. It is an established fact, jihadists were responsible for the first use of chemical weapons in Khan al-Assal near Aleppo, in which 29 people were killed. Also at that time the opposition accused the government army. However, according to investigations of the British newspaper “The Guardian” the poison gas mortar was fired from one place near the Turkish border fired that was under the control of the al-QAIDA middle Al-Nusra front.


Why would Assad use the weapons of the losers and the cowardly this time?

  1. He has the strategic initiative, the west supported jihadist terrorists are on the run and the only place they still pollute with their presence is Aleppo while they got crushed by the government forces in Kurdistan, their supply lines battered. According to the propaganda dolts the Assad government can’t wait but used WMD right on the arrival in the face of the UN inspectors, just to keep them busy and weaken his position at the upcoming peace talks organized by Russia and the US. Makes sense? Not really.
  2. According to experts there is another theory: “I think there is a reasonable possibility that a nerve agent past its shelf life was used,” he says. “That would explain why the symptoms do not match exactly.” As an example, he cites Iraqi stores of VX gas—a very toxic substance but which the Iraqis struggled to make in a pure form, meaning it only lasted six months, after which it became less poisonous.” That would bring us to the Saudis or Iraqis and the rebels. Has some probability.
  3. Some months ago a group was arrested in Turkey having Sarin gas, while UN also confirmed that terrorist groups have used chemical weapons… They ate a human heart after that… They also have chlorine which is also a chemical agent… It is so funny to tell that now that terrorists are loosing on the ground battle, Syrian army needs to attack them by chemicals. But the doctors did not test that? Has quite some probability.
  4. Western or Local State’s fabrication – i.e. secret service work to make it look like a action of Syrian government. It seems the only “evidence” the West has., is that last Wednesday, in the hours after a horrific chemical attack east of Damascus, an official at the Syrian Ministry of Defense exchanged panicked phone calls with a leader of a chemical weapons unit, demanding answers for a nerve agent strike that killed more than 1,000 people. Those conversations were overheard by U.S. intelligence services. And that is the no conclusive reason why American officials could be sure they’re certain that the attacks were the work of the Bashar al-Assad regime .But the intercept raises questions about culpability for the chemical massacre, even as it answers others: Was the attack on Aug. 21 the work of a Syrian officer overstepping his bounds? Or was the strike explicitly directed by same Western or local  secret service agent. High probability.

It seems that people are trying to make a diagnosis without the patient. Nobody was gassed but survived and remains conscious enough to talk? They could tell us the symptoms they have experienced. The “expired gas” hypothesis does make some sense, as someone has already pointed out – if an agent could kill as efficiently but would cause far less symptoms, then it would have been used as a new class of nerve agent long time ago.
There are myriad groups that could have released some kind of poison gas besides the Syrian government and FSA. We cannot rule out CIA or Israel trained operatives either at this moment. It is said “they” crossed the “red line” set up by the US President. Mr. Obama crossed his own “red line of long time ago with NSA. Why anyone would trust Mr. Obama is beyond my understanding. Who would have guessed that one of the most warmongering presidents would be a liberal Democrat who was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize? Obama has also gotten away with a secret escalating drone war because the media have mostly turned a blind eye, just like they have with Obama’s expanded ground war in Afghanistan.


The moral authority of the West in the Middle East is shaky, as an article published in Foreign Policy magazine last week reminds us. It provides documentary evidence that the US helped Saddam Hussein’s Iraq launch a series of chemical weapons attacks upon Iran in the late 1980s, an offensive that killed approximately 20,000 Iranian troops – which dwarfs the number of victims of the Syrian attack. Iran, of course, is Assad’s closest ally. Western moral indignation over chemical weapons looks selective. So did the rebells:

  1. Video from Syria documents FSA terrorists launching Sarin attacks
  2. Al Nusra / FSA terrorists were already arrested in Turkey with  Sarin nerve gas, on their way to Syria:
  3. Russia caught FSA terrorists fabricating false accusations on the web PRIOR to the actual attack: determined the last such false flag Sarin attack was the opposition terrorists, not the government:

IMHO Mr Obama did so far not present any direct evidence to back up his assertions regarding Assad’s use of chemical weapons, neither did other governments! The rush to judgment on Syria is a catastrophic and deadly error, even a a deception to start a broader conflagration. Any fool can see this. This Russian have explicitly warned of this, The Syrians have explicitly warned of this. Sane people everywhere have warned of this. Putin rightfully claims the US Middle East Policy is insane.

I have a similar feeling like four star general Wesley Clark : 7 countries in five years, America has been pushing for war with Syria and Iran for a very long time, and these type of events will give them a “green” light for military intervention. This whole thing has the potential to be even worse than the Cuba crises . I will be waiting for the UN report to surface, however I have a pretty strong feeling that it could also be a FSA False flag operation.

  • The Turkish government captured a cell of al-nusra members that tried to detonate sarin in Adana, Turkey in May. No western media coverage of it at all because it would have ruined their agenda. (See Long War Journal, Turkish news, and Reuters to verify the rebels have chemical weapons)
  • In early December, the Al Nusrah Front and allied foreign Islamist battalions seized Sheikh Suleiman base, or Base 111, in Aleppo after a months-long siege and helding it since. The military facility is rumored to be involved in the Assad regime’s chemical weapons program. The base “contained a clandestine scientific research whose purpose was unknown even to the rank and file,” AFP reported in late November, based on a claim from a soldier who defected
  • As mentioned, on May 30 this year, the Turkish media reported that 12 individuals from the al Qaeda-linked Al Nusrah Front had been captured in antiterror operations in Adana, along with a total of two kilos (4,5 lb) of sarin gas. Five of the 12 suspects were later released. Source Long War Journal

One of the founders of the Free Syrian Army, Colonel Riyad al Assad, has welcomed the Al Nusrah Front on the battlefield and has described the group as “our brothers in Islam.” Riyad made the statements in an undated video that was uploaded on YouTube in March.”We have offered martyrs and other things and, accordingly, nobody should blame us for this matter,” he said. “The Al Nusrah Front has proved that it is proficient in fighting and has treated the people very nicely.”Riyad then said the Al Nusrah Front “thus far have not done anything wrong to anybody,” disregarding the facts that the group has executed suicide attacks that have killed civilians and enforces a harsh form of sharia, or Islamic law, in areas under its control.

Inclusive published proof

The speech of Kerry in that respect was utterly unconvincing. He said that evidence “strongly indicates” chemical weapons were used in Syria and that “we know the Syrian regime maintains custody” of such weapons and has the rockets to use them. That have we known before, but he says that at a time when everybody is guessing what agent was used.  Literally, the victim was shoot, we know you have a gun and ammunition. Read a transcript of Kerry remarks below.

Well, for the last several days, President Obama and his entire national security team have been reviewing the situation in Syria. And today, I want to provide an update on our efforts as we consider our response to the use of chemical weapons.  What we saw in Syria last week should shock the conscience of the world. It defies any code of morality. Let me be clear: The indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity. By any standard, it is inexcusable and – despite the excuses and equivocations that some have manufactured – it is undeniable.The meaning of this attack goes beyond the conflict in Syria itself, and that conflict has already brought so much terrible suffering. This is about the large-scale, indiscriminate use of weapons that the civilized world long ago decided must never be used at all, a conviction shared even by countries that agree on little else.There is a clear reason that the world has banned entirely the use of chemical weapons. There is a reason the international community has set a clear standard and why many countries have taken major steps to eradicate these weapons. There is a reason why President Obama has made it such a priority to stop the proliferation of these weapons and lock them down where they do exist. There is a reason why President Obama has made clear to the Assad regime that this international norm cannot be violated without consequences.And there is a reason why, no matter what you believe about Syria, all peoples and all nations who believe in the cause of our common humanity must stand up to assure that there is accountability for the use of chemical weapons so that it never happens again.Last night, after speaking with foreign ministers from around the world about the gravity of this situation, I went back and I watched the videos, the videos that anybody can watch in the social media, and I watched them one more gut-wrenching time. It is really hard to express in words the human suffering that they lay out before us.As a father, I can’t get the image out of my head of a man who held up his dead child, wailing, while chaos swirled around him, the images of entire families dead in their beds without a drop of blood or even a visible wound, bodies contorting in spasms, human suffering that we can never ignore or forget.Anyone who could claim that an attack of this staggering scale could be contrived or fabricated needs to check their conscience and their own moral compass. What is before us today is real, and it is compelling.So I also want to underscore that while investigators are gathering additional evidence on the ground, our understanding of what has already happened in Syria is grounded in facts, informed by conscience, and guided by common sense. The reported number of victims, the reported symptoms of those who were killed or injured, the firsthand accounts from humanitarian organizations on the ground, like Doctors Without Borders and the Syria Human Rights Commission, these all strongly indicate that everything these images are already screaming at us is real, that chemical weapons were used in Syria.Moreover, we know that the Syrian regime maintains custody of these chemical weapons. We know that the Syrian regime has the capacity to do this with rockets. We know that the regime has been determined to clear the opposition from those very places where the attacks took place. And with our own eyes, we have all of us become witnesses.We have additional information about this attack, and that information is being compiled and reviewed together with our partners, and we will provide that information in the days ahead. Our sense of basic humanity is offended not only by this cowardly crime, but also by the cynical attempt to cover it up.At every turn, the Syrian regime has failed to cooperate with the U.N. investigation, using it only to stall and to stymie the important effort to bring to light what happened in Damascus in the dead of night. And as Ban Ki-moon said last week, the U.N. investigation will not determine who used these chemical weapons, only whether such weapons were used, a judgment that is already clear to the world.I spoke on Thursday with Syrian Foreign Minister Muallem, and I made it very clear to him that if the regime, as he argued, had nothing to hide, then their response should be immediate, immediate transparency, immediate access, not shelling. Their response needed to be unrestricted and immediate access. Failure to permit that, I told him, would tell its own story.Instead, for five days, the Syrian regime refused to allow the U.N. investigators access to the site of the attack that would allegedly exonerate them. Instead, it attacked the area further, shelling it and systemically destroying evidence. That is not the behavior of a government that has nothing to hide. That is not the action of a regime eager to prove to the world that it had not used chemical weapons.In fact, the regime’s belated decision to allow access is too late, and it’s too late to be credible. Today’s reports of an attack on the U.N. investigators – together with the continued shelling of these very neighborhoods – only further weakens the regime’s credibility.At President Obama’s direction, I’ve spent many hours over the last few days on the phone with foreign ministers and other leaders. The administration is actively consulting with members of Congress, and we will continue to have these conversations in the days ahead. President Obama has also been in close touch with leaders of our key allies, and the president will be making an informed decision about how to respond to this indiscriminate use of chemical weapons.But make no mistake: President Obama believes there must be accountability for those who would use the world’s most heinous weapons against the world’s most vulnerable people. Nothing today is more serious, and nothing is receiving more serious scrutiny.
Do the British better?  Not at all, there is no evidence, period. The “intelligence report” (JIC assessment of 27 August on Reported Chemical Weapons use in Damascus) is wild a guess, based on 14 other guesses and not have looked in other possibilities. It is an assault on anybody’s intelligence. Subsequently Cameron failed to convince the parliament:
A chemical attack occurred in Damascus on the morning of 21 August, resulting in at least 350 fatalities. It is not possible for the opposition to have carried out a CW attack on this scale. The regime has used CW on a smaller scale on at least 14 occasions in the past (Note: That is equally not proven). There is some intelligence to suggest regime culpability in this attack. These factors make it highly likely that the Syrian regime was responsible. 

Extensive video footage attributed to the attack in eastern Damascus (which we assess would be very difficult to falsify) is consistent with the use of a nerve agent, such as sarin, and is not consistent with the use of blister or riot control agents. 
 There is no obvious political or military trigger for regime use of CW on an apparently larger scale now, particularly given the current presence in Syria of the UN investigation team. Permission to authorise CW has probably been delegated by President Asad to senior regime commanders, such as [*], but any deliberate change in the scale and nature of use would require his authorisation. 
 There is no credible evidence that any opposition group has used CW. A number continue to seek a CW capability, but none currently has the capability to conduct a CW attack on this scale. 
 Russia claims to have a ‘good degree of confidence’ that the attack was an ‘opposition provocation’ but has announced that they support an investigation into the incident. We expect them to maintain this line. The Syrian regime has now announced that it will allow access to the sites by UN inspectors. 
 There is no immediate time limit over which environmental or physiological samples would have degraded beyond usefulness. However, the longer it takes inspectors to gain access to the affected sites, the more difficult it will be to establish the chain of evidence beyond a reasonable doubt.


Obama should be stripped of his Nobel Peace prize if he starts Syria war. Actually, already now for such an unprofessional warmongering insulting our intelligence. Even Bush did better. This is the likely aftermath:

  • Civilians bombed out to strike command centers and weapons stations (Libya 2011)
  • Encourage the rebels to kill Assad (Libya 2011)
  • Take natural resources (Somalia, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq)
  • Install a puppet for passage, strategic purposes, and oil (1953 Iranian Coup)
  • Leave the people out to dry in a bombed out war zone filled with Islamist militants (1980’s Afghanistan Taliban/al-Qaeda, 1994 Somalia al-Qaeda/Islamic Courts Union/al-shabaab, 2011 Iraq shia militants/al-Qaeda, Libya 2011 militias/al-Qaeda)
