BEIRUT, Lebanon — A humanitarian aid convoy was attacked in Syria on Monday after the Syrian military declared that a seven-day partial cease-fire was over and immediately began intensive bombardments in rebel-held areas of Aleppo, the divided city that has come to symbolize the ravages of the war.

The convoy attack, military declaration and bombings were the strongest signs yet of the gradual unraveling of a broader agreement between Russia and the United States aimed at restarting peace talks to end the conflict in Syria, which has killed an estimated 500,000 people and displaced millions.

Minutes after the Syrian military declared the cease-fire over around sunset, aerial attacks began pummeling insurgent-occupied neighborhoods of Aleppo, residents reported. The few remaining hospitals were back to overflowing, and rescuers struggled to find people in the dark, with the electricity out. By midnight, 34 people were reported killed.

United Nations officials were dumbfounded by the attack on the convoy of 31 trucks, which was escorted by the Syrian Arab Red Crescent and was carrying food, medicine and supplies bound for rebel-held areas of western Aleppo Province. The convoy was among the first to try to deliver humanitarian aid to these areas, a relief plan permitted under the cease-fire agreement.

“Our outrage at this attack is enormous,” said Staffan de Mistura, the United Nations special representative on Syria. “The convoy was the outcome of a long process of permission and preparations to assist isolated civilians.”

At least 18 of the trucks were hit, United Nations officials said. Jan Egeland, a United Nations aid adviser to the Syria peace effort, said in a Twitter post: “Many killed and injured.”

Members of the Red Crescent and local activists said at least 12 people were killed, including the local head of the organization, Omar Baraka.

Witnesses and rescuers said the convoy appeared to have been hit by multiple airstrikes, first destroying trucks and then two more hitting rescue workers as they helped the wounded.

The tactic, known as a “double-tap” strike, has been used by Syrian and Russian warplanes. The rebels have no aircraft. [but the US and UK do!]

**** BREAKING USA Doubled Tap Objection near Tel Afar April 1997 *** RE UN Samantha Powers Mention of DOUBLE TAP September 17, 2016 on CNN here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YTNbYof0cQ

In the wake that is the Syrian bombing scandal and Vitaly asking for specific evidence I present the following video testimony William Brockbrader II gave in January 2012 Re: USA Asymmetrical war using Double Tap Tomahawk missiles against rescue aid workers and the location of the village is near Tel Afar https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bIWYbGa3FU

In tribute to the American People, and SYRIA , Iraq, Libya, in memory of first aid responders on 9/11, those who died in the Twin Towers, the vets and innocence lives lost in the wars over seas, and the loving memory of JOAN NICOLE KEATING who died June 14, 2003 of toxic abuse at the hands of her husband Erik Prince and all SEAL and military wives who have been used as batteries to fund missions of terror against their consent.

TABLE OF CONTENTS:

Unreleased evidence that was suppressed during William's trial. Reasons are unclear if for the purpose of avoiding a FISA court, or because it was in fact triggered in to National Security status.
List of Evidence:
A) Buds Class number
B) Fire Controlman proof that these were ranks allowed to qualify as SEAL
C) Death threats against Master Chief Michael Jaco's Wife by Don Shipley's group
D) Location of Village William attained Intel prior to 9/11 that a strike on US soil involving pilots.
E) Data William released prior to the release of Erik Prince of SEAL Team 8 book that was later confirmed by Erik.
F) Location of Williams BUD's class happening on Coronado Beach Confirmed by Erik Prince a year later.
G) Semantic and Legalease Trade mark/ Patent changes made by, Pentagon, JASOC, Disney, and the Navy.
H) Legal letter of support and endorsement by Government Accountability Project head Tom Devine Author of Whistle Blower Protection Act.
I) Implications of SEAL Team 9 and its ties to Area 51 & Alternative technology such as Zero Point Energy.
J) Violations of International Law and Laws of War, Double strikes One is None Two is One mentality.

CAUSE FOR ACTION: William has been missing for 16 months.

OPPORTUNITY TO CURE: Please Validate the realities of My Husbands testimony regarding his conscientious objection to Double strikes that he was forced to preform and the punishment that his diverting the second missile triggered in his International Political event, his National Security and his ties to SEAL Team 9.


My name is Eva Moore and I am the wife of Fire Controlman and SEAL Team 9 Member William Newel Brockbrader II.
William was born October 22, 1972. William's Buds class number is 188. It has been argued previously that the rank of Fire Controlman was not eligible to have been qualified as a SEAL, however I would like to direct everyone to Navy Chief Fire Controlman (SEAL) Jacques J. Fontan whom died June 28, 2005 Serving During Operation Enduring Freedom.
*Source http://thefallen.militarytimes.com/navy-chief-fire-controlman-seal-jac ques-j-fontan/954880
This is evidence that indeed Fire Controlman have been allowed to qualify as SEAL's.
William's SEAL team BUD's class & training was classified and he publicly mentioned he trained along side Erik Prince of SEAL Team 8 / founder of Blackwater.
In an interview dated April 5, 2012 William mentioned that he "personally witnessed the birth of privet contractors enter in to the Grand Chess Board during the bombing of the USS Cole". William was referring to Blackwater as the Problem/Reaction/Solution that was orchestrated before 9/11. Erik Prince later went in to detail about the USS Coles bombings positive impact on Blacwaters securing contacts with the Navy, Petagon, and NATO in his book "Civilian Warriors" on Page 43


William trained at Area 51 and I am under the impression that you have knowledge of these programs, and their further implications.
I am going to start by saying that my husband, William Brockbrader II tried everything he could to prevent the trauma of 9/11 from happing in accordance with his oath to protect The United States of America against both foreign and domestic threats, and that is something he's doing still to this day.
William was given intel previous to 9/11 that he reported to his chain of command, in late 1999/ early 2000. The intel was of a potential strike to come on US soil involving pilots and he passed this through his chain of command in hopes to prevent a potential terrorist attack on US soil. Instead the villager named Akbar who was his source was killed, and the village Akbar resided in was demolished by tomahawks as if the knowledge of pre 9/11 events were being prevented from being corroborated.
The location of Akbar's village that gave this intel was 50 miles south of Iraq on the Iran/Syria border. This will prove William and the other 2 teams were there as William claimed. This time in their lives was exceptionally hard time as he was given targets he did not deem viable and against the laws of war. What other things of interest were in that location I can only speculate would cross over in to disclosure.
William's Hell Week was held on Naval Amphibious Base Coronado. Erik Prince admitted that his Buds group was moved off of the traditional location on page 22 of his book "Civilian Warriors" corroborating that William Brockbrader's claims are valid.
Further more William's trainer Michael Jaco of Seal Team 6 confirmed that he remembered training William along side Erik.
Jaco later recounted when his wife Tracy Jo's life was threatened.

The following is a Facebook Comment by Tracy on October 3, 2015 at 8:26am:

"Tracy Jo: yea this is messed up ...... and how that terrible man Mr. Shipley attacked us for admitting that we knew him..... all we did was to say only that Mj remembered him going thru seal training ~ that is the truth !! You have no idea what it is like to have your job and your life torn away from you and your personal life messed with because you told the truth.... been called "a miss goodie two shoes" or how about "tattle tale" someone even told me once that "lying is necessary at times" ????? REALLY ...this person will eventually get it, maybe because LIEING ABOUT ANYTHING IS NOT BEING OF SERVICE TO ANYONE BUT YOURSELF and lier's always get exposed in the end ..... the truth may not be what you want to hear but it is necessary to hear and to truly understand because until you hear the truth and understand it and accept it WE will never change it ..... people have been lying and have been lied to that so many think that the lies are now the truth ??? know thyself or lie to thyself ... choice is yours ~ BB be well where ever you r <3"

Im aware that your mentioning of SEAL team 6 or DEVGRU as it was legally changed in 1987 by JASOC caused a great deal of controversy, and Im sure being that 6 & 9 being paired on opposite sides of the coast would make sense that SEAL team 9 would also have been trade marked under a new name.
My reasoning for this is because of the trademark attempts Sourced below:

Walt Disney Surrenders to Navy's SEAL Team 6
By ETHAN SMITH and JULIAN E. BARNES Updated May 26, 2011 12:01 a.m. ET
"The request for Navy SEALs and SEAL Team was to broaden our existing portfolio," Cmdr. Hernandez said.
Yet Navy officials didn't file a request for "SEAL Team Six."
The Navy confirms the existence of SEAL Teams 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8 and 10. The Navy has never acknowledged the existence of Team 9 while SEAL Team 6, the service's most elite hunter-killer team, is officially called the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group, or DevGru.
Unofficially, DevGru is widely known as SEAL Team 6.
"We certainly would not request a trademark on a SEAL team that doesn't exist, like SEAL Team 6," said a Navy official."

Further information can be found in the book "No Easy Day" on page 17.

Mr. Obama I know your mandate was to be the "President of Change" since you took office in 2008. I know you have been undertaking a great deal of complexity and have been hard pressed to facilitate accurate communication to the people in a day in age with no truth in news and true disclosure in movies or "lies in the New's and truth in Movies" as its called. Samantha Powers comments blaming Syria for Double Taps was again a true example of this tactic.
Your efforts have been undermined in the Media and we saw this happen with Samantha Powers 2016 statements on CNN, and going as far back as when the Senate and the Republican party worked to instal the individual mandate of the amendment and put a wrench in the works to the Affordable Health Care Act. What was not reported is how the Senate and Republicans causing the problems on behalf of the Lobbying Groups for the Insurance Groups and BIG pharmaceutical companies who stood to lose MASSIVE amounts of money to prevent health care running smoothly. None of this information reached the public and instead the changes made to your bill was changed and blamed on you.
I know you have been working diligently to put a SPOTLIGHT on many issues, including child sexual abuse, Fraud Waste and abuse that was witnessed in the New York "Stalk" Exchange, rolling back the for Profit Prison Systems towards GITMO while facing disinformation yourself from a corrupt media and perhaps even GCHQ & JTRIG. *Ref https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joint_Threat_Research_Intelligence_Group
In the spirit of direct democracy it is my intention to empower the people to get behind you in the wake of the 15th year anniversary of 9/11.
I know that your Executive Order that reinstalled the United States to the International Criminal Court was an important first step. I am under the impression that this allowed Interpol to secure the Lap top belonging to Sterling Allen that the FBI was refusing to act upon and implicated Justice Antonin Scalia.
Mr. Obama I know you signed new whistleblower protections into law on January 3, 2012. *Sourcehttps://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-112s743enr/pdf/BILLS-112s74 3enr.pdf
I worked with GAP the Government Accountability Project and its founder Tom Devine in 2012-2014 during my husbands trial.
Please see the letter below that was written on my husbands behalf:
March 25, 2013
2704 Harmon Road
Silver Spring, MD 20902

To Whom it may Concern:

My name is Tom Devine. I am submitting this letter as a statement relevant for sentencing William Brockbrader, who has been convicted of failing to register in the state of Idaho as a sex offender. Although it is not a part of the trial record, part of the reality in this case is that Mr. Brockbrader was a pioneer whistleblower against government misconduct that caused mass deaths of innocent civilians in Afghanistan. His exercise of First Amendment rights consistently has been the catalyst to hold him accountable for sexual offenses during the Afghan conflict, and after his return home. Similarly, law enforcement authorities did not pursue charges against him until he made public appearances blowing the whistle on human rights violations in Afghanistan. In the interests of justice, this court should consider the context for the government’s strict liability stance against someone who has no record of abusive behavior since his return from war, who was straddling the uncontested limit for reporting under sex offender laws, and whom it only has treated as a criminal in reaction to his dissent against human rights violations.
I serve as legal director of the Government Accountability Project (GAP), a non-profit, non-partisan organization whose mission is to help whistleblowers – individuals who exercise free speech rights to challenge abuses of power that betray the public trust. This letter is being submitted in my personal capacity, rather than as a GAP representative. During my 34 years at GAP I have worked with over 5,000 whistleblowers and written numerous books about the phenomenon that trace classic patterns of retaliation designed to chill the exercise of free speech rights. Mr. Brockbrader’s treatment is a classic illustration of those tactics. He and others’ sexual liaisons with minors were routinely ignored by the military. But when he challenged Tomahawk “double” missile strikes that killed civilians tending to victims from initial strikes, he was court-martialed as a deviant. When he came home, Mr. Brockbraqder resented and challenged sexual reporting laws, but complied to the extent he understood that he had to by law. While law enforcement authorities disagreed with his interpretations, they let him prevail until he began resurrecting his dissent. At that point, a retaliatory investigation was opened, until he could be convicted and silenced.
As a lawyer whose life has been dedicated to challenging abuses of power, I have no empathy for abusing the power of men over women. But no one can predict wartime behavior , and this is a person for who m there is no hint of relevant sexual misconduct since his return. Prosecutors only have shown an interest in him when he exercised free speech rights to challenge military killing of civilians. Jailing Mr. Brockbrader will not serve justice by making victims safer from future sexual crimes. It only will scare more veterans into silence, and help to sustain secrecy of indefensible human rights abuses. This court should not enable those fundamental threats to government accountability.

Sincerely,
Thomas Devine "

Im writing to you today because my Husband has been missing for over 16 months. If his case was triggered in to FISA or under National Security Im sure this is of great importance to you.

It is my understanding that his case in Boise Idaho Federal court Under Chief U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmil and Ronald E. Bush Presiding Magistrate Judge was somehow triggered in to a National Security issue as there were a number of issues that point in this direction. William's finger prints could not be found in any data base nor were they permitted. There is also the issue that while at the clerks counter she slipped that he had diplomatic immunity. Im also aware there were sealed motions submitted by my husbands lawyer Robyn Fyffe assistant Jeff of Nevin, Benjamin, McKay & Bartlett LLP who also represent detainees at Gitmo. In correspondence between GAP and Robyn and I, Robyn made this statement that she was concerned for William's safety.

I have contacted my husbands appellate lawyer Elisa G. Massoth, PLLC of Idaho but she hung up on me refusing to tell me anything about my husbands where about's under confidentiality even though I am his wife and I have power of Attorney and signing authority. This furthers my suspicions that he has been triggered in to a National security status.
I believe that my Husbands potential let alone attempts to disclose Erik Prince and Blackwaters plans for 9/11 previous to it happening was the reasons he has been targeted by JTRIG as its the template that was exposed by Greenwald herehttps://theintercept.com/2014/02/24/jtrig-manipulation/
William came forward as a whistle blower in early 2012 after the NDAA was enacted and the constitutional erosion of US rights since 9/11.

His Navy Career started in June of 1991 until June 2001 in a special unit called SEAL Team 9.
William was trained to be used as an asset to control Tomahawk cruse missiles in the middle east between 1992 - 2000 in a similar capacity as drones driving them in to targets line of sight. He was then trained for bomb damage assessment and to leave as quiet as a "Ghost" and hence the nick name "Ghost Walkers".

Tomahawks have cameras on them cost of each missile was $1.2 Million Dollars each. How many were used between 1992 and 2000? His statements were in the hundreds pushing in to the thousands.
Five thousand pounds of Destex was the material used, shock waves would destroy everything with in a 50 and 100 yards of target. Loss of life would be complete at 100 yards.

In 1995 while in Northern Iraq the targets changed and questions started to be asked about the tiny targets and the level of over kill used against small villages. In April of 1997 while out on a mission in a village in Norther Iraq William had a crisis of conscious. When the first detonation took out a small two story building and cause local villagers to gather in the rubble and start to look for and rescue any survivors. The second missile was five minutes late coming in termed a "Double Strike" and William upon seeing the hundreds of villagers rushing in to help he made the executive decision to divert the second missile and send it safely in to a hill side causing an international political event. Think Baby food factories .... He was then court-martialed.

Starting as a Navy Fire control-man in A school he was approached to take part in a "Special Secret Team" and resigned to San Diego CA where he went to a special training school to learn how to use specialized equipment that would sync with Tomahawk Missile's over horizon and drive missile's in to line of sight to target, and then conduct bomb and damage assessment.
After the first Persian gulf war missiles were not flying correct.
In late 1992 William was deployed on missions where he would get to a target by plane and haho in and getting with in the line of sight of a target set up with the bird and use regular airplane controls much like an operator would fly drones now.
Tomahawks were the first generation of Drone aircraft. William was highly trained in advanced electronics, optics, electromagnetic devices, motors, syncros & servos, radar and laser, and control of air surveillance drones while on the move. Deployed to The Arleigh Burke class of guided missile destroyers (DDGs) is the United States Navy's first class of destroyer built around the Aegis Combat System out of San Diego.

Termed "asymmetrical warfare" Williams mission started through out the Middle East, mainly Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Yemen , Syria, and Libya.
Although most people were led to believe and think the Gulf War ended shortly after it began in 1991, however William's testimony is that William worked to be part of a 3 man team to carry on the level of occupation and violence carried on between 1992 and 2000 as a first class petty officer, a weapons protection detail, and the Operator position that was secretly fulfilled.

From 1992 -1995 Bill was content that the targets he was going after seemed viable from the out side. Although the USA was not officially at War these actions would be considered an act of War and would be classified as an Asymmetrical tactics. William admits the work he was doing was in direct violation of UN rules and regulations of engagements, this was a main cause for his conscientious objection.
A member of a still TO THIS DAY top secret group SEAL Team 9 was composed of 3 Teams of 3, much like the now declassified SEAL team 6. Trained in counter surveillance and counter detection. Indigo was his level of security clearance related to anyone working with Tomahawks as SEAL Team 9.
Sea Based Launch Missile's, Tomahawks missile's primary launch platforms tended to be Las Angles Fast Attack Submarine or The Arleigh Burke class. The Missiles would go along preprogrammed way points and using a combination of radar laser and terrine mapping as it would snake its way to the target. The official story was it would use a comparison of the target with what was in line of sight. The unofficial classified truth is what William's job was to do was to interrupt the flight plan and get between and extend the line of sight of the missile and the target and sync up with the missile using a "special piece of equipment" much like a drone operator controls a drone from Las Vegas. Back then the only way to control the Tomahawk would require him to get closer to the target because of the limitations of the equipment to exchange information between systems was to be on line of sight.

Capabilities of the missile's were two fold with a bomb load capacity of a thousand pounds. Generally two types of missile one that carried a cluster bomb and a main explosive charge capacity, and one with out cluster bomb capacity. Cluster bombs would be detonated before reaching William.
With the current state of OIL pipeline issues and protests going on it would be of UNIVERSAL benefit to all people that the truth around the alternative technologies that my husband used called "THE BOX" come out in to the light. The Box would use a narrow band microwave frequency that was encrypted. The Box would sync up with the missile allowing visual of the target. These boxes I feel are ZERO POINT ENERGY and your administration would benefit from not only disclosure as Steve Bassett says but the release of technology to free humanity from its oil dependancy as I know you attempted to do with the Solar company at the start of your Presidency. So much can be gained by bringing Seal Team 9 to the forefront.

In 2010 you were concerned with the fraud waste and abuse that was triggered in 2008 and I know that your focus has been on the equality of all.
I am asking for your help in bringing the truth of Seal Team 9, the truth around what they do their "Box" technology and the where abouts of my husband in to the light for the benefit of all humanity.
In accordance with God's will.

Thank you in advance
Eva Moore

Syria Fights Colonialism: Australia, UK, Denmark Confirm Roles In Brutal Deir Ezzor Massacre
by Jonathan Azaziah, Mouqawamah Music, 19 September 2016
http://mouqawamahmusic.net/syria-fights-colonialism-australia-uk-demar k-confirm-roles-in-brutal-deir-ezzor-massacre/

Analysis, Geopolitics, Maghreb & Mashreq, News, The West, World Zionism

Weekend massacre executed against Syrian troops atop Deir Ezzor’s Thardeh Mountain now looks like some kind of a murderous colonialist get-together as Australia, the UK and Denmark have all admitted their role in the unspeakable atrocity. Their statements on the crime read just about identically, with each respective Imperialist stain on humanity claiming that they, like the American regime, didn’t “intend” to hit the SAA, that they “regret” what took place and that they offer their “sincere condolences” to the families of the innocent souls whom they had butchered. The reason why this, also like Washington’s bs, does not hold even the weight of a termite, is because these are some of the bloodiest regimes to ever grace the stage of geopolitics.

The Australian settler regime wiped out hundreds of thousands of Aboriginal people and played a key role in the overthrow of Indonesian revolutionary Sukarno as well as the Suharto coup regime’s aggression against Eastern Timor. Canberra is also in thick with the usurping Zionist entity and its intelligence services and foreign affairs institutions have literally been outsourced to the Mossad, making it complicit in every criminal act ‘Israel’ carries out. Not to mention, Australia has allowed large numbers of Takfiris to flock to Syria in service of the Oded Yinon balaknization agenda. Denmark, for its part, once ran a hideous colonialist empire, with colonies of theft and mass murder in Africa, India and notably, the Caribbean, where the Jewish-dominated Danish West India Trading Company ran cruel schemes of slave-trading and sugar-thieving. And Britain? Does one really need to enumerate how many countries that the London ZOG colonized, raped and ruined at the height of its colonialist dominance? How much suffering that the London ZOG has inflicted–and continues to inflict–on the entire Global South? As Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei once remarked, the British regime is the “most evil” of all the Western powers. Thus, such regimes cannot feel “regrets”. Such regimes cannot offer “condolences”. Because such regimes are inhuman.

Mark it down and adjust the narrative ladies and gentlemen: Syria and its Hizbullahi, Iranian, Iraqi, Palestinian and Russian allies are not just fighting a foreign mercenary invasion, with terrorists descending upon Bilad al-Sham from 100 different countries. They aren’t merely battling the Najdi-Dönmeh-originated, Khaleeji-financed backwardness of Wahhabi-Takfirism. They are in fact standing their ground and defending the Syrian Arab Republic against a unified colonialist alliance, the likes of which has never been seen before at any other point in history, as this Old Joint Colonialist Conglomerate is attempting to manifest its supremacist bloodlust into a New Zio-Imperialist World Order spearheaded by ‘Israel’ and its main ZOG, i.e. Washington.

Makes the sacrifices of the Syrian Arab Army soldiers on Thardeh Mountain that much more heroic; that much more significant; and that much more inspiring, doesn’t it? These men didn’t die to “prop up a regime”. They didn’t give their lives to simply fight “Islamists”. They didn’t depart this world to “serve a dictator”. And they sure as hell didn’t fall whilst “repressing a revolution”. They were martyred, the highest, most dignified honor any individual can attain, struggling on behalf of every decolonized people on Earth, against the filthiest, most all-encompassing hegemony that has ever come into being, and in the name of what none of these genocidal Zionist puppet states will ever be able to understand: Justice, love of country and liberation from oppression. The choicest blessings of ALLAH (SWT) and the most blissful peace be upon the martyrs of the SAA. And death to the Australian, Danish and British regimes who murdered them in cold blood. Death to all these poisonous colonialist constructs and their Takfiri zombie proxies too.

'Deconstructing the NATO Narrative on Syria':
http://dissidentvoice.org/2015/10/deconstructing-the-nato-narrative-on -syria/

'Over the past five years, the increasingly ridiculous propaganda against President al-Assad and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has ranged from the scripted (OTPOR fomented -“revolution“) “peaceful protesters under fire” rhetoric, to other deceitful lexicon like “civil war,” and “moderate rebels.”

As the intervention campaigns continue with new terrorist and “humanitarian” actors (literally) constantly emerging in the NATO-alliance’s theatre of death squads, it is worth reviewing some of the important points regarding the war on Syria.

Million Person Marches

On March 29, 2011 (less than two weeks into the fantasy “revolution”) over 6 million people across Syria took to the streets in support of President al-Assad. In June, a reported hundreds of thousands marched in Damascus in support of the president, with a 2.3 km long Syrian flag. In November, 2011 (9 months into the chaos), masses again held demonstrations supporting President al-Assad, notably in Homs (the so-called “capital of the ‘revolution’”), Dara’a (the so-called “birthplace of the ‘revolution’”), Deir ez-Zour, Raqqa, Latakia, and Damascus.

Mass demonstrations like this have occurred repeatedly since, including in March 2012, in May 2014 in the lead-up to Presidential elections, and in June 2015, to note just some of the larger rallies.

In May 2013, it was reported that even NATO recognized the Syrian president’s increased popularity. “The data, relayed to NATO over the last month, asserted that 70 percent of Syrians support” the Assad government. At present, the number is now at least 80 percent....'

'...“Leftists” Keeping the Myths Alive

Public figures like Owen Jones, and pro-Palestinian sites like the Middle East Eye and the Electronic Intifada, have a following for their more palatable (and safe) solidarity stance on Palestine, but routinely spew rhetoric against Syria, which is then echoed by their well-intentioned, if very misinformed, followers.

Much of grassroots “Leftists”’ anti-Syria propaganda is as poisonous as corporate media. Routinely, at ostensibly anti-war/anti-Imperialist gatherings, the anti-Syria narrative is predominant.

For example, at the March 2015 World Social Forum in Tunis, some Syria-specific panels spun the fairy tale of “revolutionaries” in Syria, one panel alleging: “The protests in Syria were peaceful for almost six or seven months; 6-7000 unarmed people were killed; only then did ‘rebels’ eventually take up arms.”

Yet, it is known that from the beginning, in Dara’a and throughout Syria, armed protesters were firing upon, and butchering, security forces and civilians. Tim Anderson’s “Syria: how the violence began, in Daraa” pointed out that police were killed by snipers in the March 17/18 protests; the Syrian army was only brought to Dara’a following the murder of the policemen. Additionally, a storage of protesters’ weapons was found in Dara’a’s al-Omari mosque.

Prem Shankar Jha’s, “Who Fired The First Shot?” described the slaughter of 20 Syrian soldiers outside Dara’a a month later, “by cutting their throats, and cutting off the head of one of the soldiers.” A very “moderate”-rebel practice.

In “Syria: The Hidden Massacre” Sharmine Narwani investigated the early massacres of Syrian soldiers, noting that many of the murders occurred even after the Syrian government had abolished the state security courts, lifted the state of emergency, granted general amnesties, and recognized the right to peaceful protest.

The April 10, 2011 murder of Banyas farmer Nidal Janoud was one of the first horrific murders of Syrian civilians by so-called “unarmed protesters.” Face gashed open, mutilated and bleeding, Janoud was paraded by an armed mob, who then hacked him to death.

Father Frans Van der Ludt—the Dutch priest living in Syria for nearly 5 decades prior to his April 7, 2014 assassination by militants occupying the old city of Homs—wrote (repeatedly) of the “armed demonstrators” he saw in early protests, “who began to shoot at the police first.”

May 2011 video footage of later-resigned Al Jazeera journalist Ali Hashem shows fighters entering Syria from Lebanon, carrying guns and RPGs (Hashem stated he’d likewise seen fighters entering in April). Al Jazeera refused to air the May footage, telling Hashem to ‘forget there are armed men.’ [See: Sharmine Narwani’s “Surprise Video Changes Syria “Timeline””] Unarmed protesters?...'

'30 Israeli, Foreign Intelligence Officers Killed in Russia's Caliber Missile Attack in Aleppo

Fars News Agency, 21 September 2016

The Russian warships stationed in Syria's coastal waters targeted and destroyed a foreign military operations room, killing over two dozen Israeli and western intelligence officers.

"The Russian warships fired three Caliber missiles at the foreign officers' coordination operations room in Dar Ezza region in the Western part of Aleppo near Sam'an mountain, killing 30 Israeli and western officers," the Arabic-language service of the Russian Sputnik news agency quoted battlefield source in Aleppo as saying on Wednesday.

The operations room was located in the Western part of Aleppo province in the middle of sky-high Sam'an mountain and old caves. The region is deep into a chain of mountains.

Several US, Turkish, Saudi, Qatari and British officers were also killed along with the Israeli officers. The foreign officers who were killed in the Aleppo operations room were directing the terrorists' attacks in Aleppo and Idlib.

Earlier in September, the Syrian army units launched a preemptive strike on the terrorists of the so-called Aleppo Operations Room in their gathering centers near Castello road in the Northern areas of Aleppo and Mallah farms, foiling their plots to attack the region's supply route, a source said.

The source said that the army's artillery units attacked the terrorists' gathering centers near Castello and Mallah farms in Zahra Abdo Rabbah, Kafar Hamra and Hurayatyn which killed and wounded dozens of militants.

Also, the Syrian air force attacked the terrorists' supply route in Northern Aleppo towards Hayyan and Adnan as well as the supply roads in Western Aleppo towards the North and smashed the terrorists' convoys in al-Aratab, Urom Kobra and Ma'ara al-Artiq which thwarted the terrorists' plots and forced many of them flee towards the Turkish borders.

Informed media sources disclosed earlier that the Syrian army has continued its advances in the Southern part of Aleppo, and regained control over several strategic areas in the town of Khan Touman.

"A number of key warehouses of Khan Touman are now under the Syrian army's control," the Arabic-language media quoted an unnamed informed source as saying.

The source noted that the Syrian air force and army's artillery units also targeted the gathering centers and fortifications of the terrorists in Khan Touman.'

A Russian Defense Ministry official said Syria has informed them that 62 of its soldiers were killed in the airstrike. Russia has been waging a year-old air campaign on behalf of Assad's forces and closely coordinates with them.

In June, the Russians bombed a U.S.-backed rebel camp in southern Syria used by CIA-trained fighters. After the Russians bombed the camp in al-Tanf, American officials called the Russians on a special hotline and told them to stop bombing. But instead of halting their attacks, the Russians sent in another group of attack aircraft to bomb again, ignoring the American request to stop.

The CENTCOM statement read, "the airstrike was halted immediately when coalition officials were informed by Russian officials that it was possible the personnel and vehicles targeted were part of the Syrian military."

The U.S. Deir Ezzor Air Strikes in Support of ISIS-Daesh Enable the “Salafist Principality” As Foreseen In The 2012 Defense Intelligence Agency Analysis
By Moon of Alabama
Global Research, September 21, 2016
Moon of Alabama 20 September 2016
http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-us-deir-ezzor-air-strikes-in-support- of-isis-daesh-enable-the-salafist-principality-as-foreseen-in-the-2012 -defense-intelligence-agency-analysis/5546994

Two recent attacks against the Syrian Arab Army in east-Syria point to a U.S. plan to eliminate all Syrian government presence east of Palmyra. This would enable the U.S. and its allies to create a ”Sunni entity” in east-Syria and west-Iraq which would be a permanent thorn in side of Syria and its allies.

A 2012 analysis by the Defense Intelligence Agency said:

THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A DECLARED OR UNDECLARED SALAFIST PRINCIPALITY IN EASTERN SYRIA (HASAKA AND DER ZOR), AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE SUPPORTING POWERS TO THE OPPOSITION WANT, IN ORDER TO ISOLATE THE SYRIAN REGIME …

Note that the described plan mentions exactly two cities – Hasakah and Deir Ezzor.



On August 18 Kurdish YPK units suddenly attacked Syrian government positions in the center of Hasakah in the north-east of Syria. Before this incident the relations between the two entities had been decent despite some earlier, small clashes. The attacking Kurds were under advice from U.S. special operators. When the Syrian air force intervened the U.S. threatened to down its planes. The Syrian forces had to eventually retreat from populated areas in Hasakah and are now confined to an airport next to the city. They are cut of from supplies and will eventually have to give up.

(For the Kurds these attacks proved to be a political catastrophe. Not only did they lose all support from the Syrian government and Russian side, but Turkey used these clashes to justify its invasion into Syria. This ended the Kurdish national dream of a continues area from Iraq to the Mediterranean.)

On Saturday U.S. airplanes attacked the most important Syrian government position in Deir Ezzor. Nearly a hundred Syrian soldiers were killed and most of the heavy equipment the Deir Ezzor garrison had left was destroyed. Immediately after the attack fighters of the Islamic State occupied the bombed out government positions. These Islamic States fighters now own the heights above the Deir Ezzor airport. A day later the Islamic State shot down a Syrian government plane near Deir Ezzor.

The city and its 150,000+ inhabitants are surrounded by the Islamic State. They had been supplied from Damascus by nightly flights to the airport. As the Islamic State now has fire-control over the airport as well as anti-air weapons those supply flights are no longer possible. The U.S. air attack practically closed down the Syrian government ability to supply the city. If this situation continues the city will fall to the Islamic State.

The U.S. plan is to eventually take Raqqa by using Turkish or Kurdish proxies. It also plans to let the Iraqi army retake Mosul in Iraq. The only major city in Islamic State territory left between those two is Deir Ezzor. Should IS be able to take it away from the isolated Syrian army garrison it has at least a decent base to survive. (Conveniently there are also rich oil wells nearby.) No one, but the hampered Syrian state, would have an immediate interest to remove it from there.

North of that entity would be a Kurdish area with no ambition to expand south. North-west of the Deir Ezzor entity would be the friendly Turkish controlled “Safe Zone” that Erdogan plans to create.

The two recent moves by U.S. forces in east-Syria are consistent with the plan for a “Sunni entity” or “Salafist principality” described in the 2012 DIA document. Such an entity blocks the land connection of the “Shia crescent” which connects Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. This is the “isolation” of Syria foreseen in the DIA analysis. A “Sunni entity” in east-Syria also provides a path for the gas pipeline from Qatar via Turkey to Europe. The Syrian government had rejected the construction of such a line which goes against the fundamental interests of its ally Russia.

At first glance this U.S. policy seems to be shortsighted, There is no way the envisioned “Sunni entity” would ever become stable. Instead it would continue to be a source of terrorism which would hit far beyond the borders of Syria and the surrounding states. But it is exactly the instability of this construct that will allow for further U.S. presence in the area. A source of insecurity that can be activated, or shut down, whenever convenient.

US bombed Syrian troops for an hour: Assad
Thu Sep 22, 2016 11:11AM
http://presstv.ir/Detail/2016/09/22/485860/President-Assad-US-airstrik es-Syrian-army

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has said that US airstrikes on Syrian troops on Saturday were "intentional" and lasted for nearly one hour.

In an interview with the Associated Press conducted Wednesday, Assad said the attack targeted a "huge" area constituting of many hills, "so it was definitely intentional, not unintentional as they claimed."

The US Central Command has said it may have unintentionally struck the Syrian airbase in Dayr al-Zawr while carrying out a raid against Daesh and that the strikes were stopped in less than five minutes when Russia called the US to halt it.

Daesh militants briefly overran government positions in the area until they were beaten back.

"How could they (Daesh) know that the Americans are going to attack that position in order to gather their militants to attack right away and to capture it one hour after the strike?" Assad asked.

"It wasn't an accident by one airplane... It was four airplanes that kept attacking the position of the Syrian troops for nearly one hour, or a little bit more than one hour," he said.

"You don't commit a mistake for more than one hour," Assad said in the interview.

US behind collapse of ceasefire

Assad also blamed the US for the collapse of a ceasefire deal brokered with Russia.

The strikes contributed to the collapse of the truce and cast serious doubt on chances for implementing an unprecedented US-Russian agreement to jointly target Daesh.

Assad said Washington "doesn't have the will" to join the fight against Daesh, which the US, Turkey and their allies have cited as the reason for their military intervention in Syria.

Syrians who fled the country could return within a few months if the US, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar stopped backing militants, he added.

Assad said the war, now in its sixth year, is likely to "drag on" because of what he said was continued external support for Takfiri terrorists and numerous militant groups.

"When you talk about it as part of a global conflict and a regional conflict, when you have many external factors that you don't control, it's going to drag on."

'US lies' about aid convoy attack

Assad also rejected accusations that Syrian or Russian planes struck an aid convoy in Aleppo and denied that his troops were preventing food from entering the militant-held part of the city.

"If there's really a siege around the city of Aleppo, people would have been dead by now," Assad said, asking how militants were able to smuggle in arms but apparently not food or medicine.

The attack on the aid convoy outside Aleppo took place Monday night, hitting a warehouse as aid workers unloaded cargo and triggering huge explosions.

US officials have oscillated between blaming the Syrian government and the Russian military for the attack. At one point, they have described a sustained barrage that included barrel bombs.

One Thursday, however, the AP quoted an unnamed "senior US administration official" who claimed a Russian-piloted aircraft carried out the strike.

Assad dismissed the claims, saying whatever American officials say "has no credibility" and is "just lies."

Russia has called for an independent investigation into the attack and has published a footage from a drone which apparently shows a militant vehicle towing a mortar alongside the aid convoy.

On Wednesday, Russia’s Defense Ministry said an armed US drone was in the vicinity of the humanitarian aid convoy that was hit by the airstrike.

War 'savage'

Assad also brushed aside what is often described as eyewitness accounts to accuse the Syrian army, while acknowledging the war had been "savage".

"Those witnesses only appear when there's an accusation against the Syrian army or the Russian (army), but when the terrorists commit a crime or massacre or anything, you don't see any witnesses."

Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., and Russian diplomat Vitaly Churkin delivered dueling statements to the press. Power said the U.S. "regrets" the loss of life, promising an investigation into the attack. Yet Power also dismissed Russia's request for this meeting as "a stunt replete with moralism and grandstanding." Churkin, for his part, cast doubt on the American claim that the airstrike was accidental.

At a briefing on Tuesday morning, Benoit Carpentier, a spokesman for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, described the incident as “air strikes”. He was not immediately available to respond to questions about whether the Red Cross stood by that characterization after Russia gave its explanation.

Igor Konashenkov, a spokesman for Russia’s Defence Ministry, said in a statement: “We have studied video footage from the scene from so-called ‘activists’ in detail and did not find any evidence that the convoy had been struck by ordnance.”

“There are no craters and the exterior of the vehicles do not have the kind of damage consistent with blasts caused by bombs dropped from the air.”

He said the damage to the convoy visible in footage was caused by its cargo catching fire. It had occurred at the same time as militants from the group formerly called the Nusra Front had started a big offensive in nearby Aleppo, he said, appearing to point the finger at rescue workers from a group called the “White Helmets” who filmed the aftermath.

“Only representatives of the ‘White Helmets’ organization close to the Nusra Front who, as always, found themselves at the right time in the right place by chance with their video cameras can answer who did this and why.”

Hussein Badawi, head of the White Helmets in the town, said he was 100 meters (yards) from the aid depot when the attack took place and was injured by shrapnel in the hand.

“There were fires, martyrs, wounded people. We were able to pull out four survivors and five dead bodies at first,” Badawi said. “The bombardment was continuous. The rescue teams weren’t even able to work. Those who arrived in ambulances couldn’t come in.”

Syria: White Helmets Staged ‘Russian Bombing’ Scene Near Aleppo, Lapped-up by Mainstream Media
SEPTEMBER 24, 2016 BY 21WIRE 15 COMMENTS
http://21stcenturywire.com/2016/09/24/syria-white-helmets-staged-russi an-bombing-scene-near-aleppo-lapped-up-by-mainstream-media/

When it comes to Syria, the level of disinformation fraud from US Coalition-aligned agencies shows no sign of diminishing. Once more, the West is attempting to produce an open and shut case of humanitarian law violation, with which to further demonize the nations of both Syria and Russia. This, in turn, will enable them to escalate hostilities on the ground in Syria and invoke the much sought after ‘No Fly Zone’ which will be used to facilitate full spectrum destablization and a NATO bombing of Syria into the oblivion of a Libya-style failed state.
Last Saturday saw one of the most shocking and incendiary international incidents of this NATO war against Syria – a US-led, one hour-long airstrike which massacred 70 Syrian Army soldiers and wounded 100 others near the city of Deir al-Zour. The US claimed they were targeting ISIS. However, the US brutal attack on the Syrian Army provided cover for an ISIS advance into Syrian Army held territory.
Just 48 hours later, new reports then began to circulate through the western media about an attack on a UN-sponsored Aid Convoy. It is alleged that 18 of the 31 reported trucks were bringing “food relief ” from UN stores, said to be managed by Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC), to the town of Urm al-Kubra, west of Aleppo. This is an area controlled by one terrorist group, US backed Nour al-din al-Zenki and surrounded by US/NATO supported Al Nusra Front.

The UN and international groups were immediately up in arms: “Yesterday’s attack is a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law and it is unacceptable,” Peter Maurer, president of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said in a statement. “Failing to protect humanitarian workers and structures might have serious repercussions on ongoing humanitarian work in the country, hence depriving millions of people of aid essential to their survival.”
The only problem is: the NATO backed terrorists occupying areas such as East Aleppo have never recognized international humanitarian law. That lawlessness applies universally across the spectrum of terrorist entities, including Nusra Front, ISIS and the myriad of US/NATO funded and armed terrorist brigades without exception.
Naturally, the US immediately labeled the attack, “a bombing” and proceeded to accuse both Russia and Syria’s Airforce. The US claimed it had reached a “preliminary conclusion” that indicates two Russian Su-24 jets were responsible, although unnamed ‘intelligence sources‘ have told Pentagon media operative Barbara Star at CNN and other media outlets, that their “intelligence” is classified and so they can’t actually show it to anyone.
Q: would countries like the US and UK lie and fabricate intelligence or evidence , in order to accelerate a case for escalating military intervention? The answer is a resounding ‘yes’. They’ve done it before, and they most certainly will go with what works in terms of advancing their geopolitical agenda. In the words of Donald Rumsfeld, this is one of those “known knowns.”
Unfortunately, the evidence doesn’t support US claims that a combined Russian/Syrian airstrike hit this Aid Convoy. The evidence points more towards a ground attack, one most likely carried out by Nusra Front terrorists, with the aftermath filmed and media-managed as a false flag attack by the western-backed pseudo NGO the ‘White Helmets.’ Here’s why…
The UN, itself, almost immediately began back-tracking on the initial US-backed conspiracy theory of a ‘Russian airstrike.’ Regardless of this obviously questionable and uninvestigated conjecture, John Kerry and the west doubled-down on their initial, knee-jerk accusation fingering Russia and Syria.
bc-eliot-600x600A website called Bellingcat, run by Eliot Higgins (photo, left), immediate produced ‘a report’ entitled, “Confirmed : Russian Bomb Remains Recovered from Syrian Red Crescent Aid Convoy Attack”. This was meant to implicate Russia in the said airstrike, or “bombing” incident. ‘Bellingcat’ claims to be an independent ‘open source‘ intelligence website run “by and for citizen investigative journalists“, but in reality, it exists in order to support the narratives that serve NATO, and more specifically – the British Foreign Office or the US State Dept narratives. Producing flimsy and unsubstantiated evidence to support accusations against Russia, especially with regards to the Ukraine and the MH17 event, and now with Syria – seems to be Belingcat’s primary function.
One clear indicator that Bellingcat is probably working on behalf of the British Foreign Office is that Eliot Higgins has a direct line of communication with the Foreign Office construct, embedded exclusively in and alongside Nusra Front & ISIS terrorist forces in Syria, none other than the ‘White Helmets’. This connection was openly admitted by Bellingcat:
“Since the post was published the Bellingcat team has been in touch with the Syrian Civil Defence unit closest to the attacked site, who recovered and photographed two pieces of debris, including the object featured above.”
SEE ALSO: The REAL Syria Civil Defence Expose Nato’s ‘White Helmets’ as Terrorist-Linked Imposters
It’s worth noting here that the ‘White Helmets’ plagiarized the “Syria Civil Defence” name, after stealing ambulances and fire engines, kidnapping and even murdering real rescue volunteer workers, according to members of the REAL Syria Civil Defense shortly after this western creation was launched in 2013 by high ranking British and NATO military intelligence operative James Le Mesurier:
“They came in and they drove us out of our homes and they came to the Syria Civil Defence yard and they killed some of my comrades, they kidnapped others. They wanted to force me to work with them. I escaped at night. I was forced to leave my teenage sons behind. They burned my house to the ground and they put my name on all the terrorist checkpoints so if I go back, they will kill me.” ~ ‘Khaled’ (REAL Syria Civil Defense survivor, recounting 2012 terrorist takeover, Aleppo)
Note also that the ‘White Helmets’ are drawing finance of at least $60 million primarily from NATO members states, including at $23 million from US AID (US State Dept), $25 million (£19.7 million) from British Foreign Office, $4.5 million (€4 million) Netherlands, and other funding directly from the EU supposedly for ‘assistance and training,’. Initial investigations into the extent of the EU funding and equipping of this deceitfully self-proclaimed “independent first-responder” is still ongoing but has already demonstrated that the EU is also heavily invested in this fifth column, terrorist support ‘NGO.’
It was announced, just today, that the German Foreign Office is officially funding the White Helmets with $7.86 million (7 million Euros). Also, the recent awarding of the “Alternative Nobel Peace Prize” to the White Helmets seems to be another conveniently-timed PR device designed to further legitimize additional public funding for what can rightly be described as a terrorist-linked criminal entity.
This funding is concealed behind the generic heading of “Emergency Health and Relief Support to the Population Affected by the Crisis in Syria”, through the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (DG-ECHO), formerly known as the European Community Humanitarian Aid Office.
This latest media stunt essentially amounts to heavily politicized ‘gotcha’ blogging by Bellingcat. In this instance it appears that Bellingcat is attempting to amplify a fraudulent, and poorly staged “Russian bombing” of a “UN supply warehouse” supposedly run by the Syrian Arab Red Crescent in the ‘rebel’ terrorist-held town of Urm al-Kubra.
Here, Bellingcat’s director, Higgins posts a colourful array of images, diagrams and “proof” of a Russian bomb landing:
belingcat-syria
screen-shot-2016-09-24-at-01-40-02
(Image Sources: Bellingcat)
The only problem with Higgins’ elaborate “open source” trove is that he is much more likely to be analysing a staged photo-op, a set-dressing job courtesy of the White Helmets media team. Put simply, the narrative that’s been contrived by Belingcat and the White Helmets is an impossibility, based on image scenes provided by the White Helmets.
Here we see the primary photo of the alleged “Russian bombing” scene:
800px-ofab-250_bomb_in_urm_al-kubra_warehouse
Alleged scene of a Russian OFAB 250-270 high explosive fragmentation bomb (Source: Twitter)
According to independent analyst, Petri Krohn:
“This really looks like something considerably smaller, mortar shell sized, did explode there, and this fin is thrown into the crater, and all converted into this photo-op scene.”
“I don’t think anything exploded here, just hit the ground with force to make that crater, or it was already there. The shredding of the boxes to me suggests shrapnel, small, anti-personnel fletchettes.”
Krohn outlines a more likely sequence of events, and suggests the following possible scenario:
“Three things happened:
1) In August or July a small rocket or bomb came through the roof and left the burn marks seen on the walls.
2) On September 19 boxes of medical aid from the SARC convoy were placed next to the old crater, right under the hole in the roof. A small explosive was detonated in the old crater.
3) A OFAB-250 tail section was placed in the crater by White Helmets and partly covered with some boxes.
Photographs were taken, proving, ‘ASSAD KILLED US! PUTIN KILLED US!’
Give al-Nusra a No-Fly Zone now!”
“Bellingcat obtained its photos directly from the White Helmets that show that the object is not a dud OFAB-250, as previously assumed, but a crushed OFAB-250 tail section from a bomb that exploded somewhere else.”
The idea of the damage having been done prior to the alleged Russian/Syrian airstrike is more than plausible, as Urm al Kubra is a Nour al Din Zenki held area, an island in amongst Nusra Front held areas. 21WIRE has also learned that heavy inter-gang warfare had been going on since the 17th of September according to multiple sources on the ground in Syria.
The following tweet also further demonstrates the invalidity of the White Helmet reports. Indeed, how could the “witness” know for certain that it was Russian and Syrian planes, at night and in the dark, and in the midst of a supposed strike? Equally, why cant we hear and jets and helicopters?
21WIRE contributor Vanessa Beeley recently returned from Aleppo , and told us that the, “sounds of the Russian jets are deafening.” Therefore, if this had been an extended air-strike conducted by both Russian and Syrian jets [and helicopters according to initial reports of ‘barrel bombs‘] they should have been clearly audible in this video of the said “attack”:

The ground conflict in Syria is being perpetuated by western terrorist brigades under a variety of names , but perhaps the greatest damage to Syria and the Syrian people has been inflicted upon them by the propaganda merchants, a compliant western media, ‘humanitarian’ NGOs, US/NATO think-tanks, and all manner of NATO-biased, ‘Leftist’ peace activists or anti-war protesters in the west calling for another ‘war to end a war’ – when this present war was started by their own governments who are still determined to escalate this war against Syria to effect their “regime change” policy targets.
This latest media incident once more demonstrates the size and power of the apparatus driving this propaganda – with a full compliment of ancillary crisis actors and extras.
From the reactions of Kerry and the West, it is hard not to conclude that we are being propelled closer to the abyss of a dangerous geopolitical standoff, or a World War.

'Assad’s Death Warrant':
http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/09/15/assads-death-warrant/

'...“Secret cables and reports by the U.S., Saudi and Israeli intelligence agencies indicate that the moment Assad rejected the Qatari pipeline, military and intelligence planners quickly arrived at the consensus that fomenting a Sunni uprising in Syria to overthrow the uncooperative Bashar Assad was a feasible path to achieving the shared objective of completing the Qatar/Turkey gas link. In 2009, according to WikiLeaks, soon after Bashar Assad rejected the Qatar pipeline, the CIA began funding opposition groups in Syria.”

— Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Why the Arabs don’t want us in Syria, Politico

The conflict in Syria is not a war in the conventional sense of the word. It is a regime change operation, just like Libya and Iraq were regime change operations.

The main driver of the conflict is the country that’s toppled more than 50 sovereign governments since the end of World War 2. (See: Bill Blum here.) We’re talking about the United States of course.

Washington is the hands-down regime change champion, no one else even comes close. That being the case, one might assume that the American people would notice the pattern of intervention, see through the propaganda and assign blame accordingly. But that never seems to happen and it probably won’t happen here either. No matter how compelling the evidence may be, the brainwashed American people always believe their government is doing the right thing.

But the United States is not doing the right thing in Syria. Arming, training and funding Islamic extremists — that have killed half a million people, displaced 7 million more and turned the country into an uninhabitable wastelands –is not the right thing. It is the wrong thing, the immoral thing. And the US is involved in this conflict for all the wrong reasons, the foremost of which is gas. The US wants to install a puppet regime in Damascus so it can secure pipeline corridors in the East, oversee the transport of vital energy reserves from Qatar to the EU, and make sure that those reserves continue to be denominated in US Dollars that are recycled into US Treasuries and US financial assets. This is the basic recipe for maintaining US dominance in the Middle East and for extending America’s imperial grip on global power into the future.

The war in Syria did not begin when the government of Bashar al Assad cracked down on protestors in the spring of 2011. That version of events is obfuscating hogwash. The war began in 2009, when Assad rejected a Qatari plan to transport gas from Qatar to the EU via Syria. As Robert F Kennedy Jr. explains in his excellent article “Syria: Another pipeline War”:

“The $10 billion, 1,500km pipeline through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and Turkey….would have linked Qatar directly to European energy markets via distribution terminals in Turkey… The Qatar/Turkey pipeline would have given the Sunni Kingdoms of the Persian Gulf decisive domination of world natural gas markets and strengthen Qatar, America’s closest ally in the Arab world. ….

In 2009, Assad announced that he would refuse to sign the agreement to allow the pipeline to run through Syria “to protect the interests of our Russian ally….

Assad further enraged the Gulf’s Sunni monarchs by endorsing a Russian approved “Islamic pipeline” running from Iran’s side of the gas field through Syria and to the ports of Lebanon. The Islamic pipeline would make Shia Iran instead of Sunni Qatar, the principal supplier to the European energy market and dramatically increase Tehran’s influence in the Mid-East and the world…”......'

Todenhöfer: Interview With Al-Nusra Commander "The Americans stand on our side":
http://www.moonofalabama.org/2016/09/todenh%C3%B6fer-interview-with-al -nusra-commander-the-americans-stand-on-our-side.html#more

'This interview by Jürgen Todenhöfer was first published in German on September 26 2016 by the Kölner Stadtanzeiger, the major newspaper in the Cologne region. (The interview was copied and translated to English by Bernhard for educational and academic purposes.)

Interview with al-Nusra commander "The Americans stand on our side"

By Jürgen Todenhöfer

It was the seventh trip by my son Frederic and me to the civil war country Syria. We were there for 13 days. Words can only barely describe the extend of damage and suffering on both sides.

We conducted the interview ten days ago with a commander of the al-Qaida branch "Jabhat al-Nusra". Abu al-Ezz reported quite openly about his financiers Saudi-Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait. We were able to exactly research the identity of the man and know practically everything about him.

Interview in the stone quarry in Aleppo

The interview was arranged by a rebel from Aleppo. I have had contacts to Syrian rebels for years. It was conducted outside of Aleppo in a quarry in direct sight- and shooting-distance of Jabhat al-Nusra and could only be reached safely by a member of al-Nusra.

His fighters were partially not masked, i.e. easily identifiable. Part of his statements were nearly verbally confirmed shortly thereafter by a mufti in Aleppo. Other assertions about the lack of interest of rebels towards a ceasefire and an international aid-convoy also bore out. Just like his predictions about planned military activities in several cities of Syria.



Abu al-Ezz, commander, says about Jabhat al-Nusra (al-Qaeda): "We are one part of al-Qaeda. Our principles are: Fighting vice, pureness and security. Our affairs and our way have changed. Israel, for example, is now supporting us, because Israel is at war with Syria and with Hizbullah.

America also changed its opinion about us. Originally "IS" and us were one group. But "IS" was used in the interests of big states like America, for political reasons, and was steered away from our principles. It became clear to us that most of their leaders work with secret security services. We, Jabhat al-Nusra, have our own way. In the past they with us, they were our supporters.

Our aim is the downfall of the dictatorial regime, the tyrannical regime, the regime of the apostate. Our aim is the conduct of conquests, like [the great Arab general] Khaled ibn al-Walid made them. First in the Arab world and then in Europe."

Part 2 - The Interview by Jürgen Todenhöfer with the rebel commander Abu al-Ezz

Jürgen Todenhöfer: How is the relation between you and the United States? Does the U.S. support the rebels?

Abu al-Ezz: Yes, the U.S. support the opposition, but not directly. They support the countries which support us. But we are not yet satisfied with this support. They should support us with highly developed weapons. We have won battles thanks to the "TOW" missiles. We reached a balance with the regime through these missiles. We received the tanks from Libya through Turkey. Also the "BMs" - multiple rocket launchers. The regime excels us only with their fighter jets, missiles and missile launchers. We captured a share of its missile launchers and a large share came from abroad. But it is through the American "TOW" that we have the situation in some regions under control.

To whom did the U.S. hand those missiles before they were brought to you? Were those missiles first given to the Free Syrian Army by the U.S. and from there to you?

No, the missiles were give directly to us. They were delivered to a certain group. When the "road" was closed and we were besieged we had officers here from Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Israel and the United States.

What did those officers do?

Experts! Experts for the use of satellites, missiles, reconnaissance work, thermal surveillance cameras ...

Were there also American experts?

Yes, experts from several countries.

Including Americans?

Yes. The Americans are on our side, but not as it should be. For example we were told: We must capture and conquer "Battalion 47". Saudi Arabia gave us 500 million Syrian pounds. For taking the "al-Muslimiya" infantry school years ago we received from Kuwait 1.5 million Kuwaiti dinar and from Saudi Arabia 5 million U.S. dollars.

From the governments or from private persons?

From the governments.

The fight is difficult, the regime is strong and it has support from Russia ...?

We will fight until the downfall of the regime. We will fight Russia and the West because the West does not stand on our side. The West only sends us mujahedin, it facilitates the way of those fighters. Why doesn't the West support us properly? We have many fighters from Germany, France, Great Britain, America, from all western countries.

You have many fighters from Europe in Aleppo with the "al-Nusra front"?

Many, many, many!

How many?

Many.

What do you think about the ceasefire?

We do not recognize the ceasefire. We will reposition our groups. We will undertake in the next, in a few days an overwhelming attack against the regime. We have rearranged all our armed forces in all provinces, in Homs, Aleppo, Idlib and Hama.

You do not want those 40 trucks with aid supplies to bring those into the eastern part of Aleppo?

We have demands. As longs as the regime is positioned along Castello road, in al-Malah and in the northern areas we will not let those trucks pass. The regime must retreat from all areas in order for us to let the trucks pass. If a truck comes in despite that, we will arrest the driver.

Why did a few of your groups pull back a kilometer or 500 meters from the Castello road?

The regime used highly developed weapons against us. We received a backlash. That is why we silently retreated, to recover and to attack the regime anew. But this attack must lead to the downfall of the regime.

So that was a trick, a military tactic?

Yes, it was a military tactic.

Was the aim of this tactic to receive food or the reallocation of fighters?

We did not agree to the ceasefire.

Does that hold only for the al-Nusra Front or for all other groups, the rest of your allies?

The applies to all our integrated groups, who are our allies.

Islamic Front, Islamic Army?

They are all with us. We are all the al-Nusra Front. A groups is created and calls itself "Islamic Army", or "Fateh al-Sham". Each group has its own name but their believe is homogeneous. The general name is al-Nusra Front. One person has, for example, 2,000 fighters. Then het creates from these a new group and calls it "Ahrar al-Sham". Brothers, who's believe, thoughts and aims are identical to those of al-Nusra Front.

Is that your own opinion or also the opinion of higher management levels?

That is the general opinion. But if someone comes to you and makes you a 'moderate fighter' and offers you to eat and to drink, will you accept that or not?

450,000 people were killed in this war. I have been to Aleppo and Homs. Many parts are destroyed. If the war continues the whole country will be destroyed. Millions will die. ... In Germany we once had the 'Thirty Years' War' ...

We are now only 5 years at war, that is comparatively short!

Would you accept someone from the Assad-regime within a transitional government?

We accept no one from the Assad-regime or from the Free Syrian Army, which is called moderate. Our aim is the downfall of the regime and the founding of an Islamic state according to the Islamic sharia.

The people of Aloush, who traveled to Geneva for negotiations, accepted a transitional government.

There are Syrian mercenaries. Aloush fights with the al-Nusra Front. The groups Turkey houses and from which the Free Syrian Army was created have earlier been with al-Nusra Front. These people are weak people, they received a lot of money, they sold themselves. They must follow the orders of their sponsors.

The "Islamic Army and the "ISlamic Front" negotiate in Geneva

Because their leaders were produced in the West. They are counseled and paid by western secret services and the secret services of the Gulf states to fulfill the aims of those countries.

We are here at the most forward observation point of the Sheik Said area. This are is under our control. Behind those houses and al-Majbal are regime soldiers. Our armed forces are 200 meters from here.'

Russian military contacted US twice to stop airstrikes against Syrian govt troops
Published time: 21 Sep, 2016 15:09
Edited time: 22 Sep, 2016 14:07
https://www.rt.com/news/360156-airstrike-usa-syria-russia/

The Russian military tried to contact its US counterparts twice to warn them they were launching airstrikes against Syrian government forces before they were eventually halted, a senior US spokesman has revealed.
Col. John J. Thomas, a spokesman for US Central Command, told reporters at the Pentagon that about half an hour into the airstrikes, which were being undertaken by US-led coalition warplanes on September 17, the coalition air operations center (CAOC) received a call from a Russian officer.

The officer asked to speak to the designated contact, but that person was away from the phone. The Russians called back and the representative took the phone call. In less than 5 minutes, “the call to knock it off was put in place and the attacks ceased,” according to Thomas.

However, the damage had been done, as 62 Syrian government soldiers had been killed by the airstrikes near Deir ez-Zor, while a further 100 received injuries.

The CAOC said that it had told the Russian military about its plans to launch airstrikes at that location, as it believed it would be targeting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists.

“We never had struck regime targets in this conflict, we didn't intend to at the time and we won't in the future. So when we heard that we may be doing that it was our obligation to call it off immediately and that's what they did,” Thomas said in the briefing.

The Russian Defense Ministry said that the aircraft which carried out the bombings had entered Syrian airspace from the territory of Iraq.

Four strikes against Syrian positions were performed by two F-16 jet fighters and two A-10 support aircraft, it added.

“If the airstrike was caused by the wrong coordinates of targets, then it’s a direct consequence of the stubborn unwillingness of the American side to coordinate with Russia in its actions against terrorist groups in Syria,” Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman, Major-General Igor Konashenkov, said.


RT spoke to former UK MI5 intelligence officer Annie Machon, who expressed doubt as to whether the US airstrike was unintentional.

“I find it slightly unbelievable that the Americans could hit this target thinking this was ISIS when in fact ISIS is laying siege to the city. And the Syrian forces for years now have been known to be holed up in that city. So it seems just strange that the Americans are just saying it was a bit of a mistake,” Machon told RT.

'Damascus has proof US talked to ISIS militants ahead of airstrike on Syrian forces – lawmaker':
https://www.rt.com/news/360656-us-isis-talks-proof/

' Damascus has a recording of conversations between the American military and Islamic State terrorists ahead of the US-led coalition airstrike that hit Syrian troops near Deir ez-Zor on September 17, the speaker of the People's Council of Syria said.

“The Syrian Army intercepted the communications between the Americans and Daesh [Arabic pejorative for Islamic State/IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL] ahead of the attack on Deir ez-Zor," Hadiya Khalaf Abbas said, as cited by Sputnik Arabic.

According to the People's Council speaker, the Syrian authorities have evidence that the US-led coalition’s airstrike was a deliberate act.

Abbas promised that details of the recording will be released by Damascus.

Syrian troops encircled by Islamic State militants near the town of Deir ez-Zor were bombed by US-led coalition warplanes on September 17.

Sixty-two soldiers were killed and over 100 injured in the airstrike, which was immediately followed by an offensive by jihadists on the positions of government forces.

The bombing was stopped only after the Russian military contacted the US side several times, saying that they were attacking the wrong targets.

Washington acknowledged the fact of the airstrike against the Syrian troops and even apologized for the mistake.

The incident dealt a serious blow to the Syrian ceasefire deal, which Moscow and Washington agreed earlier in September.

During his speech at the UN General Assembly during the weekend, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem also said that the bombing of Syrian troops by the US-led coalition was a deliberate attack, not a mistake as Washington claims.

"The Syrian government puts all the responsibility for the aggression on the US, as the facts show that it was a deliberate attack, but not a mistake – even if America says the opposite,” Muallem said, adding that the bombing “proves that the US and its allies are accomplices of Islamic State and other terror groups.”

'Ahrar Al-Sham plans to launch chemical attack on civilians, blame it on Syria govt – Syrian UN envoy':
https://www.rt.com/news/360590-ahrar-sham-chemical-attack-syria/

' Militants from Ahrar Al-Sham, a hardline Islamist group, are planning to use white phosphorus in an attack on civilians to later blame it on Syrian armed forces, UN envoy Bashar Ja’afari told a UN Security Council emergency meeting on Sunday.

“I have information that Ahrar Al-Sham terrorists intend to mount attacks on civilian population using white phosphorus for the sake of fabricating accusations against the Syrian state and its army,” the diplomat said at the meeting as cited by TASS.

To falsify the evidence and make their claims sound more credible, the militants plan to pose as Syrian army troops as they deploy the banned substance, Ja’afari said, adding that imposters are going to put on Syrian army uniforms and film the whole incident on camera. He did not elaborate on the source of the intelligence.

White phosphorus is an extremely poisonous toxic agent able to inflict severe burn injuries and is banned from use in civilian areas, according to international law. It is only legitimate to deploy the chemical to create a smokescreen, make signals, or markings for friendly troops. The US has repeatedly used this loophole to use white phosphorus during Middle Eastern campaigns while claiming the indiscriminate weapon is only used as a smokescreen for advancing troops. Most recently, US military deployed white phosphorus shells in Iraq, saying they were used to “obscure” Kurdish fighters’ offensive against Islamists.

Speaking of the alleged upcoming provocation, Ja’afari mentioned the suspicious activity by American experts, who, he claimed, had visited one of the chemical munitions depots in the rebel-held town of Saraqib in the northwestern Idlib province. Upon examining the site, the experts departed Syria for Turkey, he claimed.....'

VIDEO: Syria White Helmet Savagery Hand in Hand with Nusra Front aka Al Qaeda:
http://21stcenturywire.com/2016/09/30/video-syria-white-helmet-savager y-hand-in-hand-with-nusra-front-aka-al-qaeda/

‘….One might ask Mr Le Mesurier, and also Mr Boris Johnson, UK Foreign Minister who just awarded the White Helmets a further £ 32 million for their “selfless bravery” and humanitarian valour, to perhaps explain the following video…..’

Yes, indeed, and at the same time the DFID remove CIIR’s £2m yearly funding, leading to their dissolution.
My own experience with CIIR has been they are a truly great supporter of poor peasants and workers wherever they are deployed, or wherever they support other local groups, unlike the murderous NATO puppet ‘White Helmets’.

‘White Helmets’ — pawns for U.S. militarism
By Workers World staff posted on September 21, 2016

http://www.workers.org/2016/09/21/white-helmets-pawns-for-u-s-militari sm/

The dangerous U.S. military escalation of its 5-year war to overturn Syria’s government can be seen in the Sept. 17 bombing, which killed 62 Syrian Army soldiers and aided the position of the Islamic State group. The attack sabotaged a U.S.-Russian brokered ceasefire and led Russia to call for an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting.
At the same time, there has been a heavy barrage of U.S. war propaganda. “White Helmets,” a new film, is part of the sophisticated disinformation campaign.
War propaganda is always more insidious on the home front, but it is an essential ingredient of imperialist wars. Charging the enemy with genocide, baby killing, mass rapes, mass graves and weapons of mass destruction have all been debunked after a U.S. war. But they saturate the media before a war and seem indisputable.
Samantha Powers, U.S. ambassador to the U.N., has denounced both Russia and Syria. She labels U.S. wars “humanitarian interventions,” and has used unsubstantiated war propaganda to justify wars in West Asia, North Africa and the Balkans that have decimated countries, killed hundreds of thousands of people and displaced millions.
Social media hype
The film praising White Helmets, a U.S.-British-funded group embedded with U.S.-funded reactionary opposition forces, is trending on Netflix. The documentary’s well-publicized launch is calculated to help it win awards and convey the call for deeper U.S. military involvement in Syria. It premiered the Sept. 17-18 weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival.
NBC News praised the featured group as “Angels on the Front Line.” The Washington Post, New York Times and Wall Street Journal sang the movie’s praises and White Helmets’ “selfless, humanitarian role.”
The White Helmets defines itself as unpaid, unarmed first responders in Syria, claims 3,000 members and alleges it is a Syrian Civil Defense group. It claims to have saved 40,000, even 60,000 lives in Syria, by rescuing survivors from bombsites.
Most claims about the White Helmets are unverified self-promotion on social media. Interviews with and media coverage of the grouping show desperate appeals for an increase in U.S./NATO military action in Syria — not peace and reconciliation. New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof and other journalists have quoted its calls for a no-fly zone as a “humanitarian” option.
The much-hyped White Helmets is not a Syrian organization, nor was it created by Syrians, nor is it educational. It is a U.S.-British creation. Former British Army officer James Le Mesurier, self-described as a British “security” specialist, founded it. He previously worked for Blackwater, the mercenary organization universally condemned for its murderous brutality in Iraq.
U.S. AID funding
The White Helmets’ website declares the group is “unfunded, independent and neutral.” At an April 27 press conference, U.S. State Department Deputy Spokesperson Mark Toner acknowledged the organization has received $23 million from the U.S. Agency for International Development. That agency’s website explains, “Our work … advances U.S. foreign policy objectives.”
Additionally, the White Helmets receives millions of dollars from billionaire financier George Soros, the Netherlands and the British Foreign Office. Equipment and vehicles come through Turkey.
The White Helmets has never functioned as a neutral force. While attacking the Syrian government and calling for more U.S., British and NATO bombing, the group functions exclusively in Syrian areas held by the Nusra Front, a terrorist organization linked to al-Qaida. This well-funded group operates on the ground with U.S.-, British-, Israeli- and Saudi-funded militias committed to destroying Syria’s government.
While claiming to be “unarmed,” the White Helmets appears in videos with weapons, surrounded by armed militias.
The U.S. brought White Helmets’ leader Raed Saleh to the U.N. Security Council in 2014 to testify against the Syrian government and to lobby for a U.N. resolution approving a U.S.-enforced no-fly zone — meaning direct U.S. intervention. Saleh promotes bombing to “save” the people of Syria and is hardly “neutral.”
Washington later barred Saleh from the U.S. when he tried to attend a gala dinner honoring White Helmets with a keynote speech from USAID. The State Department deported him, citing his connections to “extremist organizations.”
The White Helmets is the latest of a series of front groups, designed to give a “humanitarian” gloss to Washington’s latest war of regime change in the Middle East.
White Helmets was established as a social media presence of the Syria Campaign, AVAAZ and Purpose — interlinked campaigns that push for U.S. destruction of Syria. They quote each others’ material and create the illusion of a democratic, independent opposition in Syria.
These forces are also pushing for a Nobel Peace Prize nomination for White Helmets to further legitimatize their calls for an expanded war. They also campaigned for Washington to bomb Libya under the guise of a “humanitarian” no-fly zone.
Resources that tell the truth
While the corporate media and TV entertainment channels seem to be taken in by this slick film, it takes little effort to expose who White Helmets is and reveal its role in the ugly U.S.-funded war in Syria. Information is available online in various formats. But this has not stopped the constant, orchestrated promotion of White Helmet.
“The White Helmets — al Qaeda with a Facelift” is a 4-minute video on Youtube which reveals the truth about the grouping. (tinyurl.com/zojokn3) The Syria Solidarity Movement, including Eva Bartlett, Vanessa Beeley, Ken Stone and Hands Off Syria, which made the video, has extensively researched White Helmets’ funding and role.
Change.org’s petition opposes the Nobel Peace Prize nomination, concluding that the White Helmets is “terrorism and neocolonialism under the umbrella of Humanitarianism.” (tinyurl.com/z52cttu)

Is Britain fighting another illegal war in the Middle East?

The death of 62 Syrian soldiers raises fundamental questions about UK drone activity inside Syria

Wednesday 21 September 2016
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/sep/21/is-britain-fight ing-another-illegal-war-in-middle-east-uk-drone

The damaging admission that a British drone was involved in the “accidental killing” of 62 Syrian soldiers has exposed the truth about how far the UK has been drawn into this bloody and unwinnable conflict. And it may also provide the Syrian president Bashar al Assad and his allies with sufficient grounds to bring war crimes charges against Britain.

Given the recent lessons of the Chilcot inquiry into the Iraq war, it seems barely conceivable that we could be unwittingly repeating the calamitous mistakes of Iraq. Yet when parliament voted last year to approve limited military action in Syria, MPs restricted British forces to airstrikes against specified Islamic State targets.

Last weekend’s battlefield bloodshed preceded the horrifying bombing of a UN aid convoy by as yet unknown forces. The killing of Syrian soldiers has allowed Assad to turn the tables on the coalition and accuse Britain and America of deliberately targeting his forces. It is an accusation that once again places Britain at risk of fighting an illegal war in the Middle East.

Assad claims the attack on his troops could not have been a mistake. Syria’s Russian allies sought an emergency meeting of the United Nations security council to review the incident.

And Russia’s UN ambassador, Vitaly Churkin, described the timing of the attack as “highly suspicious”, adding that it did not look like an honest mistake. It was even claimed that Isis forces, the intended target of the coalition airstrike, used the attack to take ground from the regime forces.


The stories you need to read, in one handy email

The Ministry of Defence has denied that Syrian soldiers were deliberately targeted and said the incident would be fully investigated. But should the Syrian victims want to take a case to the international criminal court in The Hague it will be doubly embarrassing for Britain. The US is not a signatory to the ICC treaty, so it would be left to Britain, Washington’s junior partner in the coalition, to defend any charges. The Hague, of course, is exactly where many wish to see Assad (who also hasn’t signed the ICC Treaty) facing charges of war crimes. This week foreign secretary Boris Johnson and human rights barrister Amal Clooney stepped up their own efforts to gather evidence against all those accused of committing atrocities in Syria – including Assad’s forces.

Among the 223 MPs who voted against taking military action last year many will have known that Syria was not like any other conflict, and British forces risked becoming caught up in a confusing and dangerous civil war.

Those who did vote for airstrikes thought they had done enough to restrict military action to the limited terms of the motion, which named Isis as the sole enemy. During the debate leading up to the December vote, David Cameron told the Commons that he was only asking to end the absurdity that prevented British aircraft from chasing Isis terrorists into Syria from Iraq.

He said the targets were to be “the leaders of this death cult itself, the training camps, the communications hubs and those … plotting against us”.

Figures this month from the MoD show that since December, the RAF has flown a thousand sorties over Syria, striking targets 79 times. Typhoon and Tornado jets, supported by Raytheon Sentinel R1 ground surveillance aircraft, have dropped more than 100 giant Paveway bombs and 23 Brimstone missiles. Scores of special forces based in Jordan and Iraq have taken on Isis forces and killed dozens of fighters on the ground.

But it is the deployment of the RAF’s fleet of 10 Reaper drones that may have sucked British forces into unauthorised conflict. It was a British Reaper that took part in the US-led operation that caused the “accidental” deaths of the 62 Syrian soldiers and threatened the fragile truce.

And it is the use of Reapers, based in Iraq, and flown remotely by satellite from an RAF base in Waddington, Lincolnshire, against Isis fighters who are British citizens that has triggered an inquiry. The government has confirmed that Reapers took part in operations to assassinate British Isis fighters in Syria who are said to have posed a direct threat to the UK. One of these strikes took place before the Commons had voted in December in favour of limited military action in Syria, killing Reyaad Khan, 21, an Isis fighter from Cardiff who had appeared in a terrorist recruitment video. He died as a result of a joint US/UK operation in August last year along with Ruhul Amin, 26, from Aberdeen, a passenger in the car in which they were travelling. Further joint US-UK operations took out cyber-terrorist Junaid Hussain, 21, also in August, and Isis executioner Mohammed Emwazi, 26, also known as Jihadi John, in November.

Those deaths are now being investigated by a joint parliamentary committee on human rights, which has already said that the use of drones in the government’s “targeted killing” programme left British pilots and commanders operating them vulnerable to murder charges.

It found that confusion over the precise legal justification exposes frontline personnel and all those involved in decisions to launch lethal attacks outside warzones to “criminal prosecution for murder or complicity in murder”.

Calls for the government to publish the legal advice that supports its claim that Britain is acting in self-defence have so far been rejected. Even if it publishes a full response to the human rights committee report ministers are unlikely to concede any ground to those who believe UK military action in Syria may have broken international law. But as each month passes Britain becomes more and more embroiled in the Syrian quagmire. As we commit increasing numbers of personnel and more hardware to US-led military operations, the risk of being caught up in illegal acts will only increase.

Russia warns it will shoot down alliance jets over Syria if US launches air strikes against Assad

Russian forces could shoot down coalition jets if the United States launches airstrikes against pro-government forces in Syria, the Russian ministry of defence has said.

American officials have reportedly discussed using limited airstrikes to force Bashar al-Assad’s government to halt its assault on Aleppo and return the negotiating table after a ceasefire collapsed last month.

In Moscow’s starkest warning yet against Western intervention in the war, Russia’s chief military spokesman said that any airstrikes on government-held territory in Syria would be considered a “clear threat” to Russian servicemen.

Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said Russia would consider any strikes on government held territory a threat to its troops and would respond accordingly.

US military planners should “carefully consider the possible consequences” of such action, Major General Igor Konashenkov said in a statement on Thursday.

“Today, the Syrian army has effective S-200, Buk and other air defense systems, which have undergone technical renovation in the past year,” he said.

“I remind US 'strategists' that air cover for the Russian military bases in Tartus and Hmeymim includes S-400 and S-300 anti aircraft missile systems, the range of which may come as a surprise to any unidentified flying objects,” he added.

Russian air defence troops would not have time to identify the flight path of incoming rockets or aircraft that fired them, and would respond immediately, Maj. Gen. Konashenkov added.

Officials from the State Department, CIA, and Joint Chiefs of Staff discussed using limited airstrikes to pressure Bashar al-Assad to halt an assault on Aleppo and return to the negotiating table at a meeting in the White House last week, the Washington Post reported on Tuesday.

The discussion came after the United States suspended bilateral consultations with Russia over Syria, saying that Moscow had failed to live up to commitments to rein in a ferocious aerial and ground assault on the opposition-held eastern districts of Aleppo.

Russia earlier rejected a calls from John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, for a total suspension of military flights over Syria in order to restore the ceasefire.

Moscow blames the collapse of a short lived ceasefire on a US-led alliance airstrike that mistakenly killed dozens of Syrian government soldiers on September 17. Maj. Gen Konashenkov said measures had been taken to prevent a repetition of such “mistakes.”

The US believes Russia and the Syrian regime destroyed the ceasefire when they bombed a humanitarian convoy in revenge.

Russia announced the deployment of the S-330 VM, an advanced anti-aircraft missile that can also intercept cruise missiles, to Syria on Tuesday.

Thursday's warning came as the Russian foreign ministry appeared to accuse the United States of involvement in a mortar attack on its Damascus embassy.

No one was hurt in the attack on Monday, which saw several rounds landed in the compound of the Russian embassy. The ministry said it believed the shells had been fired from a rebel-held neighbourhood.

“We see links between this terror attack and the threats Washington issued against us earlier,” said Maria Zakharova, spokeswoman for the Russian foreign ministry.

She was referring to comments by John Kirby, a US State Department spokesman who said last week that Russia had an interest in stopping the violence in Syria because extremists could exploit the vacuum there and launch attacks "against Russian interests, perhaps even Russian cities."

There has been mounting speculation in the Russian media that the crisis in Syria could lead to military confrontation or even war with the United States.

Several newspapers have run prominent features asking whether Russia would act to protect her Syrian allies in the event of US airstrikes against pro-government troops or infrastructure.

The implications, many have noted, are alarming.

“If Moscow is silent, her geopolitical significance will be reduced to zero. If she answers – that is already a big war,” warned Nezavisimaya Gazeta noted on Thursday.

Semen Bagsadov, director of the Centre for Middle East and Central Asian Studies, told Moskovsky Komsomolets, a tabloid, that the Soviet Union had downed US aircraft over Korea and Vietnam without triggering a Third World War.

Others, however, have urged caution. Konstantin Sivkov, an expert at the Russian artillery academy, told the independent NSN new agency that war was unlikely because the United States could wipe out Russia’s air contingent in Syria “in a few days.”

Spiraling tensions between the US and Russia appeared to reach a peak this week when Vladimir Putin suspended a plutonium reprocessing deal because of “unfriendly” American policies.

'Aleppo is defended by Assad, not attacked':
http://internationaltimes.it/aleppo-is-defended-by-assad-not-attacked/

'WAR – what is it good for? The military and weapons industry, of course. That’s what they do. When you have trained to become a chef, architect or musician your natural desire is to have people who want feeding, housing or entertaining. Soldier are no different. Without wars there is no place to properly test new weapons and the skills of those who are trained to kill people. War is where soldiers get promoted through the ranks. They like it, as do the makers of death-dealing weaponry. So when the military industrial complex has its hands on the controls of a nation we can be horrified, but not surprised, that reasons to make war are fabricated. We don’t want to believe that fellow human beings could behave like this simply to get rich and powerful, but they can, and have done through history. Hundreds of thousands may die and millions be displaced by their crimes against humanity. They don’t care.

The war in Syria was planned long before any shots were fired. It is as phony as the WMD lies that initiated war upon Iraq, and as unrelated to “bringing democracy” as the war that turned a stable Libya into a mess for its people, a training ground for terrorists and a launch point for thousands of refugees fleeing the chaos we brought to the region. The Syrian conflict is NOT a civil war, but a foreign invasion, supported and led by the US, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Qatar and other interested parties.

Most of the news we are fed about Aleppo is lies. Did you know that 70% of its residents supported the Syrian government, according to a rebel commander in 2012? 600,000 residents fled eastern Aleppo to the safety of government secured western Aleppo when the so-called rebels (mostly foreign fighters) attacked in July 2012. The estimated 200,000 trapped in the east today are prevented by the insurgents from fleeing to safety. It is these so-called rebels who turned once-peaceful eastern Aleppo into a war zone, which is why civilians are getting killed. TheWhite Helmets are not what you imagine, either. The so-called Rebels are good at PR, trained by their Western advisors.

We are barraged with talk of nasty “barrel bombs.” These explosives dropped from the air are, essentially, bombs not made by the likes of Lockheed, Boeing and BAE Systems. All bombs tend to kill or injure those in a building being destroyed. Respectable branded bombs can cost anything from $100,000 (Hellfire) to $14 million (the MOAB) apiece (average cost of a US airstrike is $2.5 million ). To those at the receiving end, many of the branded products can be even more horrific than barrel bombs.

“Top U.S. arms makers are straining to meet surging demand” for their lethal ordnance as a result of the various conflicts supported or prompted by western foreign policy in Syria and the Middle East. Its boom time and they’re lovin’ it. The Syrian conflict could have been over in 2013 had the US and its coalition not actively fanned the flames of war with men and munitions. It is all done for the Syrian people, of course. Today they are still fanning those flames, seeking to escalate and prolong the conflict.

The western military industrial complex doesn’t really give a damn whether wars are won or lost anymore. When the US lost in Vietnam and abandoned mission in Iraq its generals did not surrender their swords and America was not invaded. Syria is or was a big stepping stone on the road to bringing down Iran. It was all planned ahead and paid for with our taxes.

It was the US that scuppered the recent cease-fire in its desperation to keep the conflict going. They spin their propaganda, demonizing Assad to justify military intervention. The ploy is to protect the Syrian people from his tyranny (ring any bells?). The aim is to prevent him defeating the so-called rebels intent upon taking over Aleppo against the wishes of its residents. That could bring peace – a major setback for Islamic State and the military industrial complex, putting a brake on America’s grand demolition plan for the Middle East.

This highly recommended interview clearly explains the situation in Syria.'

UN envoy warns east Aleppo faces 'total destruction'
Staffan de Mistura offers to personally escort rebel fighters out of Aleppo to help save 275,000 trapped civilians.
http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2016/10/envoy-warns-east-aleppo-faces-to tal-destruction-161006125742882.html

The UN's Syria envoy on Thursday made an impassioned appeal to save eastern Aleppo, warning the city faced total destruction and urging Jabhat Fateh al-Sham fighters to leave the rebel-held east so civilians can get aid.

"In a maximum of two months, two-and-half months, the city of eastern Aleppo may be totally destroyed," Staffan de Mistura told reporters in Geneva.

The rebel-held east of Aleppo has been hammered by a Russia-backed government offensive, including multiple air attacks on hospitals, with hundreds of civilians killed and thousands wounded.

De Mistura noted the presence of Jabhat Fateh al-Sham in the city has been used as a justification by Moscow and Damascus for the continued assault.


Al Jazeera's James Bays reports from the UN on de Mistura's proposal
Formerly known as al-Nusra Front, the group recently changed its name following a break with al-Qaeda, but many still see the two groups as tied.

"Can you please look at my eyes," de Mistura said in a direct appeal to the group's leaders, before pleading with them to quit Aleppo.

"If you decide to leave with dignity ... I am personally ready to physically accompany you," the UN envoy pledged.

He said history would judge Syria and Russia if they used the presence of about 900 Fateh al-Sham fighters as an "easy alibi" for destroying the rebel-held besieged area, killing thousands of the 275,000 citizens, 100,000 of whom are children.

Aid deliveries to the besieged rebel-held neighbourhoods of Aleppo have been all but impossible since government forces seized the last supply route in July.

'Emergency mode'

President Bashar al-Assad said on Thursday that rebels holed up in Aleppo can leave with their families if they lay down their arms, vowing to press on with the assault on Syria's largest city and recapture full control of the country.

However, rebels said they had no plan to evacuate Aleppo, the last major urban area they control, and denounced the amnesty offer as a deception.

"It's impossible for the rebel groups to leave Aleppo because this would be a trick by the regime," Zakaria Malahifji, a Turkey-based official for the Fastaqim group which is present in Aleppo, told Reuters.

"Aleppo is not like other areas, it's not possible for them to surrender."

The government also sent text messages to the mobile phones of some of those people trapped in the besieged sector, telling them to repudiate fighters in their midst.


Syria: Under Russia's fist - People and Power
Speaking to Danish television, Assad said he would "continue the fight with the rebels till they leave Aleppo. They have to. There's no other option."

On the ground, Syrian government forces seized about half of a key opposition-held neighbourhood in Aleppo on Thursday in a new advance against rebels, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor said.

The British-based group said fighting had been raging in the Bustan al-Basha quarter near the city centre.

"We are in an emergency mode regarding Syria, Aleppo, and the future of the this conflict," de Mistura said in Geneva.

The UN envoy described the suspension earlier this week of Syria ceasefire talks between Russia and the US as a "serious setback".

French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault was expected to push on Thursday for a UN Security Council resolution to bring about a new Syria truce.

Ambassadors of the Security Council were to meet at the French Mission to the UN later on Thursday to discuss the proposed resolution, which "calls for an immediate ceasefire in Aleppo and the grounding of all aircraft over Aleppo", according to Al Jazeera's James Bays, reporting from the UN headquarters in New York.

Government troops, with Russian air support and Iranian and militia ground forces, launched an assault to retake all of Aleppo last month after a week-old ceasefire agreed to by Washington and Moscow steadily fell apart.

"The siege has been in place for weeks now. Food and fuel supplies are dwindling … bakeries are closing, there is no running water. According to Oxfam, 1.5 million people on both sides of the city do not have clean running water," Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr, reporting from Gaziantep along the Syria-Turkey border, said.

But the government and its allies are still pushing ahead with their offensive, retaking territory in the north of rebel-held Aleppo in recent days as opposition fighters stopped a second advance from the south.

The government is demanding that civilians leave the area, "but the only option it has given them is to leave to the western, government-controlled side of Aleppo, and people are afraid".

As recently as Wednesday night, Jabhat Fateh al-Sham published footage showing fighters training and preparing for battle in Aleppo.

"We still haven't had a chance to speak to the people of Aleppo and to see whether they accept this ... because yes, at the end of the day, the people of Aleppo do not accept and share the ideology of Nusra. But they do feel the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham is the only one really standing up against the government, and it is the strongest force in the ground repelling the government [advance]," Khodr said.

The 900 or so Fateh al-Sham fighters are among the estimated 8,000 rebel fighters left in east Aleppo.

Pentagon Begins Low-Intensity, Stealth War in Syria
by MIKE WHITNEY
http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/10/07/pentagon-begins-low-intensity-s tealth-war-in-syria/

“Last Wednesday, at a Deputies Committee meeting at the White House, officials from the State Department, the CIA and the Joint Chiefs of Staff discussed limited military strikes against the (Assad) regime … One proposed way to get around the White House’s long-standing objection to striking the Assad regime without a U.N. Security Council resolution would be to carry out the strikes covertly and without public acknowledgment.”

– Washington Post

Call it stealth warfare, call it poking the bear, call it whatever you’d like. The fact is, the Syrian war has entered a new and more dangerous phase increasing the chances of a catastrophic confrontation between the US and Russia.

This new chapter of the conflict is the brainchild of Pentagon warlord, Ash Carter, whose attack on a Syrian outpost at Deir Ezzor killed 62 Syrian regulars putting a swift end to the fragile ceasefire agreement. Carter and his generals opposed the Kerry-Lavrov ceasefire deal because it would have required “military and intelligence cooperation with the Russians”. In other words, the US would have had to get the greenlight from Moscow for its bombing targets which would have undermined its ability to assist its jihadist fighters on the ground. That was a real deal-breaker for the Pentagon. But bombing Deir Ezzor fixed all that. It got the Pentagon out of the jam it was in, it torpedoed the ceasefire, and it allowed Carter to launch his own private shooting match without presidential authorization. Mission accomplished.

So what sort of escalation does Carter have in mind, after all, most analysts assume that a direct confrontation between the United States and Russia will lead to a nuclear war. Is he really willing to take that risk?

Heck no, but not everyone agrees that more violence will lead to a nuclear exchange. Carter, for example, seems to think that he can raise the stakes considerably without any real danger, which is why he intends to conduct a low-intensity, stealth war on mainly Syrian assets that will force Putin to increase Russia’s military commitment. The larger Russia’s military commitment, the greater probability of a quagmire, which is the primary objective of Plan C, aka–Plan Carter. Take a look at this clip from an article in Tuesday’s Washington Post which helps to explain what’s going on:

“U.S. military strikes against the Assad regime will be back on the table Wednesday at the White House, when top national security officials in the Obama administration are set to discuss options for the way forward in Syria…

Inside the national security agencies, meetings have been going on for weeks to consider new options to recommend to the president to address the ongoing crisis in Aleppo,…A meeting of the National Security Council, which could include the president, could come as early as this weekend.

Last Wednesday, at a Deputies Committee meeting at the White House, officials from the State Department, the CIA and the Joint Chiefs of Staff discussed limited military strikes against the regime…

The options under consideration… include bombing Syrian air force runways using cruise missiles and other long-range weapons fired from coalition planes and ships… One proposed way to get around the White House’s long-standing objection to striking the Assad regime without a U.N. Security Council resolution would be to carry out the strikes covertly and without public acknowledgment, the official said.” (Obama administration considering strikes on Assad, again, Washington Post)

Don’t you think the Washington Post should have mentioned that Carter’s sordid-little enterprise is already underway?

Consider the bombing of Deir Ezzor, for example. Doesn’t that meet the Post’s standard of “U.S. military strikes against the Assad regime”?

Sure, it does.

And what about the two Syrian bridges US warplanes took out over the Euphrates last week? (making it more difficult to attack ISIS strongholds in the eastern quadrant of the country) Don’t they count?

Of course, they do.

And let’s not forget the fact that Carter’s jihadist buddies on the ground launched a mortar attack on the Russian embassy in Damascus on Tuesday. That’s another part of this low-intensity war that’s already underway. So all this rubbish about Obama mulling over these “new options” for “military strikes” is complete hogwash. Plan Carter is already in full swing, the train already left the station. The only thing missing is presidential authorization which probably isn’t necessary since Il Duce Carter decided that it was his turn to run the country.

Now check out this clip from a Memo to the President from a group of ex-U.S. intelligence agents who compelled to warn Obama about (among other things) “asserting White House civilian control over the Pentagon.” Here’s an excerpt:

“In public remarks bordering on the insubordinate, senior Pentagon officials showed unusually open skepticism regarding key aspects of the Kerry-Lavrov deal. We can assume that what Lavrov told his boss in private is close to his uncharacteristically blunt words on Russian NTV on Sept. 26:

“My good friend John Kerry … is under fierce criticism from the US military machine. Despite the fact that, as always, [they] made assurances that the US Commander in Chief, President Barack Obama, supported him in his contacts with Russia… apparently the military does not really listen to the Commander in Chief.”

Lavrov’s words are not mere rhetoric … Policy differences between the White House and the Pentagon are rarely as openly expressed as they are now over policy on Syria.”
(Obama Warned to Defuse Tensions with Russia, Consortium News)

How shocking is that? When was the last time you read a memo from retired Intel agents warning the president that the Pentagon was usurping his Constitutional authority? That sounds pretty serious, don’t you think?

Bottom line: The Pentagon is basically prosecuting their own little war in Syria and then chatting up the policy with Obama when they damn-well feel like it. Here’s more from the Washington Post:

“The CIA and the Joint Chiefs of Staff … expressed support for such “kinetic” options, the official said … That marked an increase of support for striking Assad compared with the last time such options were considered.” (Washington Post)

Of course they want to bomb Assad. They’re losing! Everyone wants to bomb someone when they’re losing. It’s human nature. But that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. It’s a very bad idea. Just like supporting Sunni extremists is a bad idea. Just like giving shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles (MANPADS) to fanatical crackpots is a bad idea. How crazy is that? And how long before one of these religious nutcases use their new toys to take down an Israeli or American jetliner?

Not very long, I’d wager. The idea of doubling-down on homicidal maniacs (By providing them with more lethal weapons) is really one of the dumbest ideas of all time, and yet, the Pentagon and CIA seem to think that it’s tip-top military strategy. Here’s one last blurb from the WA Post article:

“Kerry’s deputy, Antony Blinken, testified last week that the U.S. leverage in Russia comes from the notion that Russia will eventually become weary of the cost of its military intervention in Syria. “The leverage is the consequences for Russia of being stuck in a quagmire that is going to have a number of profoundly negative effects,” Blinken told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.” (Washington Post)

See? There it is in black and white. “Quagmire”. The new “Plan C” strategy is designed to create a quagmire for Putin by gradually ratcheting up the violence forcing him to prolong his stay and deepen his commitment. It’s a clever trap and it could work, too. The only hitch is that Putin and his allies appear to be making steady headway on the battlefield. That’s going to make a lot harder for Syria’s enemies to continue the provocations and incitements without triggering massive retaliation.

But maybe Carter hasn’t thought about that yet.

NOTE: Russia issues warning to Pentagon; Hostile aircraft that threatens Syrian troops will be shot down

This is from a Thursday report on Sputnik International:

“The Russian Minister of Defense said “that “Russian S-300, S-400 air defense systems deployed in Syria’s Hmeymim and Tartus have combat ranges that may surprise any unidentified airborne targets. Operators of Russian air defense systems won’t have time to identify the origin of airstrikes, and the response will be immediate. Any illusions about “invisible” jets will inevitably be crushed by disappointing reality.”

No More Deir ez-Zors

“I point out to all the ‘hotheads’ that following the September 17 coalition airstrike on the Syrian Army in Deir ez-Zor we took all necessary measures to exclude any similar ‘accidents’ happening to Russian forces in Syria,” Konashenkov said. (Sputnik)

So the cat's finally out of the bag
British taxpayers willing to risk WWIII to provide Al Nusra Front with air cover
WTF Boris! Why are you risking nuclear strikes on Britain, by providing air cover to terrorists in Aleppo?

RAF given green light to shoot down hostile Russian jets in Syria

Romil Patel International Business Times 11 October 2015

As relations between the West and Russia steadily deteriorate, Royal Air Force (RAF) pilots have been given the go-ahead to shoot down Russian military jets when flying missions over Syria and Iraq, if they are endangered by them. The development comes with warnings that the UK and Russia are now "one step closer" to being at war.

RAF Tornado pilots have been instructed to avoid contact with Russian aircraft while engaged in missions for Operation Shader – the codename for the RAF's anti-Isis work in Iraq and Syria. But their aircraft have been armed with air-to-air missiles and the pilots have been given the green light to defend themselves if they are threatened by Russian pilots.

"The first thing a British pilot will do is to try to avoid a situation where an air-to-air attack is likely to occur — you avoid an area if there is Russian activity," an unidentified source from the UK's Permanent Joint Headquarters (PJHQ) told the Sunday Times. "But if a pilot is fired on or believes he is about to be fired on, he can defend himself. We now have a situation where a single pilot, irrespective of nationality, can have a strategic impact on future events."

The RAF Tornados aircraft will be armed with heat-seeking Advanced Short Range Air-to-Air Missiles (Asraams, also called AIM-132 missiles). These weapons, which cost £200,000 each, can reach triple the speed of sound and have a longer range than other air-to-air missiles, allowing RAF pilots to shoot down enemy aircraft without being targeted themselves.

The Sunday Times' report quoted a defence source as saying: "Up till now RAF Tornados have been equipped with 500lb satellite-guided bombs — there has been no or little air-to-air threat. But in the last week the situation has changed. We need to respond accordingly."

"We need to protect our pilots but at the same time," said another source. "We're taking a step closer to war. It will only take one plane to be shot down in an air-to-air battle and the whole landscape will change."

Russia in Syria

The move comes after Russia's entry into the civil war in Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad's government forces. The US has branded Russia's involvement as "fundamentally flawed", with the Kremlin facing accusations that it is ignoring IS fighters to go after al-Assad's opponents.

According to a report in the Sunday Times, an appraisal carried out by UK defence officials said: "It took six days for Russia to strike any Isis targets at all. Their air strikes have included moderate opposition groups who have been fighting to defend their areas from Isis. Among the targets hit were three field hospitals."

In the past 24 hours Russia's Defence Ministry said that it has continued its air strikes on IS positions in Hama, Idlib, Latakia and Raqqa. It reported that the attacks resulted in the "complete destruction" of "53 fortified areas and strong points with armament and military hardware", seven ammunition depots, four field camps of "terrorists", one command centre, and artillery and mortar batteries.

On 28 September, when speaking to the US state-run Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Putin ruled out sending ground troops to Syria, saying it was "out of question".
