(UPDATING): NATO Carrying out Vast Syria Disinformation Campaign

Updates on Syria conflict + VoltaireNet’s June 2012 warning of vast NATO disinformation campaign now seemingly underway. (Latest updates at top)

For those still skeptical about the West, Israel, and the Gulf State’s willingness to subvert and destroy nations throughout the Middle East solely for self-serving purposes, using any guise or lie necessary to accomplish their goals – readers are encouraged to revisit this 2003 Guardian article titled, “Macmillan backed Syria assassination plot,” where a fully detailed agenda of destabilizing and pitting nations against each other was fully formulated. In fact, many of the dynamics at play then, in 1956, can still be seen at work and being openly manipulated by Western powers today.

Which Path to Persia? .pdf

Details regarding the latest version of this plot against Syria, and by extension, Iran, can be seen fully documented in Seymour Hersh’s 2007 New Yorker article, “The Redirection,” and US Brookings Institution’s “Which Path to Persia?” report (.pdf found here).


UPDATED July 19, 2012 – After over a year of suspicion and tacit confirmations that the US and Israel were behind the violence in Syria, Haaretz of Israel has now confirmed that US and Israeli officials are planning strikes against Syrian “weapon facilities,” citing the unfounded threat of “chemical weapons.”

This after a recent Washington Post article confirming both US and Israeli intelligence are on Syria’s borders overseeing and directing the arming and funding of the so-called “Free Syrian Army” (FSA).

In reality, this week’s violence was a premeditated, concerted campaign timed to pressure the UN Security Council and shake the support of Russia and China ahead of a highly anticipated vote on sanctions.

Syria has in fact suffered years of instability and violent terrorist campaigns in the past, including the Muslim Brotherhood’s assassination of high ranking military officials, and still prevailed. It is unlikely that Syria has reached a “turning point” in favor of the FSA who has yet to gain a military victory on the battlefield and has been resigned to terrorist tactics. Instead, Syria has reached a point where it will be untenable for the West to continue portraying the FSA as “activists,” “victims,” or “pro-democracy.”

This will play well into the now fully untied hands of the Syrian military, which is why both the US and Israel are eager to justify at least limited strikes on “weapons facilities,” in an effort to balk the inevitable and merciless counter-stroke by the Syrian people against the West’s campaign of armed subversion.

Readers should be aware of the prospect of a false flag chemical weapons attack carried out by FSA terrorists, or their Western backers, in order to justify an air campaign targeting Syrian military capabilities.

In Libya, after a similar psychological-operation against Tripoli unfolded, and despite NATO deploying daily air strikes, the government and people of Libya were able to hold out for months against NATO-armed terrorist proxies, highlighting the limitations of this strategy of convert subversion and warfare. Finding (or manufacturing) any excuse to bridge the rampant covert destabilization in Syria with a more conventional military operation is now NATO, Israel, and the Gulf States’ top priority – and a prospect they are attempting to prepare the public for with articles like that found in Haaretz.


UPDATE July 19, 2012 – Hezbollah leader Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah has now stated, ”there is a US-Israeli project against Syria,” and that “the US and Israel consider Syria as a problem, because Syria is a real supporter of resistance.”

(UPDATING): NATO Carrying out Vast Syria Disinformation Campaign now nasrallah 420 071812020446

This echos Nasrallah’s statements in 2007, as reported in Seymour Hersh’s article “The Redirection,”

“Nasrallah accused the Bush Administration of working with Israel to deliberately instigate fitna, an Arabic word that is used to mean “insurrection and fragmentation within Islam.” “In my opinion, there is a huge campaign through the media throughout the world to put each side up against the other,” he said. “I believe that all this is being run by American and Israeli intelligence.” (He did not provide any specific evidence for this.) He said that the U.S. war in Iraq had increased sectarian tensions, but argued that Hezbollah had tried to prevent them from spreading into Lebanon. (Sunni-Shiite confrontations increased, along with violence, in the weeks after we talked.)” –The Redirection, Seymour Hersh

Quite clearly the US and Israel are directly behind (and benefiting from) the violence now seen in Syria, with the Washington Post as recently as this week admitting both the CIA & Israeli intelligence are working with FSA rebels along Syria’s borders. The summation of the FSA’s weapons and funding, admittedly directed into terrorist hands by the CIA, are primarily sourcedfrom Saudi Arabia and Qatar – exactly as described would happen in Hersh’s 2007 article, “The Redirection.”

Clearly the violence in Syria from 2007 until present, is the result of premeditated foreign subversion, betraying Western propaganda that a “popular uprising” is taking place. And because the violence is a creation and perpetuation of foreign powers – namely NATO, Israel, and the Gulf States, this casts serious suspicion on these very powers regarding the recent Damascus bombing targeting high level Syrian military and intelligence officers.….

UPDATE July 19, 2012 – After unconfirmed reports by nameless “US officials” that Syria was moving chemical weapons out of storage, and now in the midst of a massive media disinformation campaign, several leading “activist” Twitter accounts have been hysterically warning about an “imminent” chemical attack by a “desperate regime.” The US has repeatedly insinuated that any use of chemical weapons would require either it, or Israel to militarily intervene.

In reality, it is NATO’s militant front that has the means (chemical weapons brought in from Libya), the motivation (subsequently receiving military intervention on their behalf), and a demonstrated willingness to carry out indiscriminate, mass-casualty terrorist attacks as demonstrated by their months’ long bombing campaign (and here).


UPDATE July 19, 2012 – With confusion surrounding events in Syria, there is now news of a bombing in Bulgaria involving buses full of Israeli tourists. Before any investigation has been carried out, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has already placed the blame on Iran. Netanyahu is quoted as saying Israel, “would respond with force to Iranian terror.”

(UPDATING): NATO Carrying out Vast Syria Disinformation Campaign w 2bulgaria 071812

Similar attacks, but on a smaller scale, were carried out in Georgia and Thailand with all signs pointing not to Iran, but Israeli and US trained, armed, funded, and directed MEK terrorists. Not only is the timing of the most recent attack in Bulgaria suspicious – corresponding with a major push to destabilize Syria, but the rush to judgement by Israeli officials seems all to conveniently assisting Western, not Iranian objectives.

Hezbollah, often cited by the West and Israel as a proxy of Iran, has already denied any responsibilityfor the bombings stating, “our movement does not fight against tourists.”

It has been reported as early as 2007 that efforts to destabilize Syria were aimed directly at undermining and inevitably attempting to overthrow the government of Iran. This was written about at length in Seymour Hersh’s 2007 New Yorker article, “The Redirection,” and is a reoccurring theme throughout US policy papers.  Any move against Syria inevitably involves Iran as part of the calculation for the West which has been plotting regime change in both nations since at least 1991.


UPDATE July 18, 2012 – Remember when NATO began “Operation Mermaid Dawn” in August of 2011 against Tripoli, Libya, the Western press initially reported Qaddafi’s command structure either killed or captured. The initial effects of this propaganda devastated Libyans psychologically and the city of Tripoli fell almost overnight.

(UPDATING): NATO Carrying out Vast Syria Disinformation Campaign SaifVeryNotCapturedPhoto: Qaddafi’s son Saif Al-Islam “confirmed” to have been captured and ready to be transferred to the Hague by the illegitimate International Criminal Court, was actually very much free and leading efforts to drive out NATO backed Al Qaeda terrorists from Tripoli. After Western media sources attempted to portray Libya as “fallen,” fighting would rage on for months, with NATO literally flattening citiesin an effort to match tactical reality with their wartime propaganda.


The next day it turned out that Qaddafi and his command structure was very much intact and still fighting. The battle for Libya would stretch on for many months more – with NATO forced to destroy entire cities with daily aerial bombardments to finally claim “victory.”

In Syria, NATO air support does not exist – and unless they can psychologically defeat Syrians, and panic the world into believing immediate foreign intervention is necessary, their latest “Mermaid Dawn” moment in Syria will fail. In addition to false reports of “massive defections” and “coups,” readers must be aware of false flag chemical attacks (or mere reports of them) that will serve as impetus for NATO to militarily intervene.


Editor’s Note: NATO has failed categorically to sell UNSC mandated military intervention to an increasingly unreceptive global public. With fighting reported in Damascus and the Western media and the so-called “Free Syrian Army” hailing it as the “final battle” despite zero tactical victories in nearly a year and a half of fighting, the stage is being set instead for a massive psychological operation.

Such an operation was warned against in mid-June by Thierry Meyssan – and provides a somber warning more pertinent now than ever. Please re-read, re-post, and re-tweet this following article – ensure that NATO’s “Mermaid Dawn” moment in Syria turns into a “Bay of Pigs” defeat instead.


Thierry Meyssan
Voltaire Network
July 18, 2012

(Originally posted June 11, 2012) – In a few days, perhaps as early as Friday, June 15, at noon, the Syrians wanting to watch their national TV stations will see them replaced on their screens by TV programs created by the CIA. Studio-shot images will show massacres that are blamed on the Syrian Government, people demonstrating, ministers and generals resigning from their posts, President Al-Assad fleeing, the rebels gathering in the big city centers, and a new government installing itself in the presidential palace.

This operation of disinformation, directly managed from Washington by Ben Rhodes, the US deputy national security adviser for strategic communication, aims at demoralizing the Syrians in order to pave the way for a coup d’etat. NATO, discontent about the double veto of Russia and China, will thus succeed in conquering Syria without attacking the country illegally. Whichever judgment you might have formed on the actual events in Syria, a coup d’etat will end all hopes of democratization.

The Arab League has officially asked the satellite operators Arabsat and Nilesat to stop broadcasting Syrian media, either public or private (Syria TV, Al-Ekbariya, Ad-Dounia, Cham TV, etc.) A precedent already exists because the Arab League had managed to censure Libyan TV in order to keep the leaders of the Jamahiriya from communicating with their people. There is no Hertz network in Syria, where TV works exclusively with satellites. The cut, however, will not leave the screens black.

Actually, this public decision is only the tip of the iceberg. According to our information several international meetings were organized during the past week to coordinate the disinformation campaign. The first two were technical meetings, held in Doha (Qatar); the third was a political meeting and took place in Riyad (Saudi Arabia).

The first meeting assembled PSYOP officers, embedded in the satellite TV channels of Al-Arabiya, Al-Jazeera, BBC, CNN, Fox, France 24, Future TV and MTV. It is known that since 1998, the officers of the US Army Psychological Operations Unit (PSYOP) have been incorporated in CNN. Since then this practice has been extended by NATO to other strategic media as well.

They fabricated false information in advance, on the basis of a “story-telling” script devised by Ben Rhodes’s team at the White House. A procedure of reciprocal validation was installed, with each media quoting the lies of the other media to render them plausible for TV spectators. The participants also decided not only to requisition the TV channels of the CIA for Syria and Lebanon (Barada, Future TV, MTV, Orient News, Syria Chaab, Syria Alghad) but also about 40 religious Wahhabi TV channels to call for confessional massacres to the cry of “Christians to Beyrouth, Alawites into the grave!.”

The second meeting was held for engineers and technicians to fabricate fictitious images, mixing one part in an outdoor studio, the other part with computer generated images. During the past weeks, studios in Saudi Arabia have been set up to build replicas of the two presidential palaces in Syria and the main squares of Damascus, Aleppo and Homs. Studios of this type already exist in Doha (Qatar), but they are not sufficient.

The third meeting was held by General James B. Smith, the US ambassador, a representative of the UK, prince Bandar Bin Sultan (whom former U.S. president George Bush named his adopted son so that the U.S. press called him “Bandar Bush”). In this meeting the media actions were coordinated with those of the Free “Syrian” Army, in which prince Bandar’s mercenaries play a decisive role.

The operation had been in the making for several months, but the U.S. National Security Council decided to accelerate the action after the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, notified the White House that he would oppose by all means, even by force, any illegal NATO military intervention in Syria.

The operation has a double intent: the first is to spread false information, the second aims at censuring all possible responses.

The hampering of TV satellites for military purposes is not new. Under pressure from Israel, the USA and the EU blocked Lebanese, Palestinian, Iraqi, Libyan and Iranian TV channels, one after the other. However, no satellite channels from other parts of the world were censured.

The broadcast of false news is also not new, but four significant steps have been taken in the art of propaganda during the last decade.

• In 1994, a pop music station named “Free Radio of the Thousand Hills” (RTML) gave the signal for genocide in Rwanda with the cry, “Kill the cockroaches!

• In 2001, NATO used the media to impose an interpretation of the 9/11 attacks and to justify its own aggression against Afghanistan and Iraq. At that time already, it was Ben Rhodes who had been commissioned by the Bush administration to concoct the Kean/Hamilton Commission report on the attacks.

• In 2002, the CIA used five TV channels (Televen, Globovision, ValeTV and CMT) to make the public in Venezuela believe that phantom demonstrators had captured the elected president, Hugo Chávez, forcing him to resign. In reality he was the victim of a military coup d’etat.

• In 2011, France 24 served as information ministry for the Libyan CNT, according to a signed contract. During the battle of Tripoli, NATO produced fake studio films, then transmitted them via Al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiya, showing phantom images of Libyan rebels on the central square of the capital city, while in reality they were still far away. As a consequence, the inhabitants of Tripoli were persuaded that the war was lost and gave up all resistance.

Nowadays the media do not only support a war, they produce it themselves.

This procedure violates the principles of International Law, first of all Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights relating to the fact of receiving and imparting information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.” Above all, the procedure violates the United Nations General Assembly resolution, adopted after the end of World War II, to prevent further wars. Resolutions 110381 and 819 forbid “to set obstacles to free exchange of information and ideas” (like cutting off Syrian TV channels) and “all propaganda provoking or encouraging threats to peace, breaking peace, and all acts of aggression”. By law, war propaganda is a crime against peace, the worst of crimes, because it facilitates war crimes and genocide.

U.S.-backed Syrian Opposition Linked to Bilderberg, CFR, Goldman Sachs & George Soros

Alex Newman

New American
Monday, July 16, 2012

The foreign-financed armed rebellion and the Western-backed opposition to Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad has been falsely portrayed as a spontaneous uprising of “democracy” activists since violence first broke out more than a year ago. But according to a recent investigation published in the U.K.Guardian, top figures in the “regime-change” coalition — most notably the Syrian National Council (SNC) — have intimate links to the highest ranks of the world elite: the shadowy Bilderberg conference, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the Goldman Sachs megabank, billionaire financier George Soros, and, of course, the U.S. government. It is all out in the open, too.

On top of that, the report suggests that much of the war propaganda being used to promote international military intervention and “revolution” is actually slick public-relations gimmicks financed by large tax-exempt foundations and even the governments being asked to intervene. And there is big money behind the spread of the disinformation. Consider the seemingly never-ending reports about “civilian massacres” blamed on the Syrian tyrant — almost always from anonymous “activists” — that continually prove to be exaggerated, fabricated, or even perpetrated by the Western-backed rebels themselves, and then blamed on the regime.

The most recent example occurred just last week when anonymous “activists” prompted the global press and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to claim that over 200 civilians, including women and children, had been massacred, only to be contradicted later — even by a UN investigation and “opposition activists” themselves. What actually happened, as The New American originally reportedeven before the UN probe, was apparently a battle between armed Western-backed “rebels” and the dictatorship’s military forces that resulted in some deaths of combatants.

So who are the “opposition activists” in reality? “The mainstream news media have, in the main, been remarkably passive when it comes to Syrian sources: billing them simply as ‘official spokesmen’ or ‘pro-democracy campaigners’ without, for the most part, scrutinizing their statements, their backgrounds or their political connections,” observed Charlie Skelton in his detailed and well-sourced article for the Guardian, noting that many of the most frequently quoted sources are openly connected to what he calls “the Anglo-American opposition creation business.” As The New Americandocumented a year ago, many of the Syrian “opposition” groups and leaders were being showered with American taxpayer dollars to undermine the regime long before the “Arab Spring” even erupted.

Aside from the “anonymous” sources, there are a few opposition players that seem to be doing virtually all of the accusing for the establishment press — not to mention making most of the demands for more “humanitarian” war. The first one cited by Skelton is Bassma Kodmani, one of the top leaders in the “Syrian National Council” — a foreign-based umbrella group for some opposition factions, including the extremist Muslim Brotherhood, which is widely touted by the establishment press and Western governments as the primary group representing the “people” of Syria. And Kodmani, who continues to loudly demand international military intervention to oust the Assad regime, has open links to the elite.

Consider, for example, that she was at this year’s Bilderberg conference in Chantilly, Virginia — a secret yearly meeting of the top global power brokers from media, finance, government, military, intelligence, business, and more, that has come under criticism from across the political spectrum. Kodmani was also at the 2008 Bilderberg conference, though she was listed as French then. Now, for reasons that are not entirely clear, her official affiliation is listed only as “international.”

Before Bilderberg, Kodmani was a former official with the massive Ford Foundation, an organization that has also come under fire for its controversial efforts to remake the world. More recently, she was serving as the executive director of the “Arab Reform Initiative” for the powerful U.S.-based globalist outfit known as the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) — yet another controversial elite group that is often faced with severe criticism for its hostility to national sovereignty, as well as American traditions of self-governance and individual liberty. The CFR membership roster includes many of the most influential figures in U.S. politics, business, military, and more.

“At this level, the worlds of banking, diplomacy, industry, intelligence, and the various policy institutes and foundations all mesh together, and there, in the middle of it all, is Kodmani,” Skelton pointed out, noting that billionaire leftist financier George Soros, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Goldman Sachs International Chairman Peter Sutherland, as well as countless military and intelligence bosses from the West, were all tied to the “Arab Reform Initiative” in various ways. “A picture is emerging of Kodmani as a trusted lieutenant of the Anglo-American democracy-promotion industry.” Indeed.

Another senior representative of the SNC is Ausama (or Osama) Monajed, the founder and director of Barada Television. The “opposition” TV outfit, U.S. diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks showed, was actually being secretly financed with millions of American taxpayers’ dollars, starting under the George W. Bush administration. The Syrian regime “would undoubtedly view any U.S. funds going to illegal political groups as tantamount to supporting regime change,” noted the top U.S. diplomat in Damascus in a 2009 embassy cable. “A reassessment of current U.S.-sponsored programming that supports anti-[government] factions, both inside and outside Syria, may prove productive.”

State Department spokesmen later claimed that unconstitutionally showering U.S. taxpayer money on foreign propaganda aimed at fomenting revolution in Syria was not “necessarily” undermining the existing government. Of course, more recently, the U.S. government and assorted Arab dictatorships have been funneling arms and equipment to the rebels, too. Even more aid is expected soon.

Another senior figure demanding an international war on Syria is Radwan Ziadeh, a “senior fellow” at the taxpayer-funded, establishment-linked “U.S. Institute of Peace,” and a “visiting fellow” at the London-based Royal Institute of International Affairs — the CFR’s counterpart in the U.K. Also doing much of the talking — including demands that American troops be unconstitutionally deployed to participate in Syria’s civil war — are Hamza Fakher and Michael Weiss, both darlings of the neoconservative, war-mongering establishment. The two are also deeply involved in marketing the proposed military intervention using PR trickery, evidence suggests.

Commenting on the “amazingly open ties of the Syrian opposition to their Western paymasters,” analyst Daniel McAdams offered a brief summary of the links in a piece for the liberty-minded site entitled “Syrian Opposition’s Amazing CIA Credentials.” His conclusion: “Down to the person these Syrian engines of regime change are products of the US empire and its interventionist, Trotskyite foreign policy of ‘global democratic revolution.’” More than a few observers have echoed those sentiments, especially in recent months, as the true agenda became even more transparent.

Meanwhile, one of the primary sources of alleged atrocities in Syria being perpetrated by the Assad regime is known as the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), a British-based outfit that seems to consist of just one man who passionately despises the Syrian dictatorship. Establishment media outlets around the world have written countless stories based just on this one entity — almost always presenting it as an unbiased observer merely reporting the facts on the ground. But what is the SOHR really?

“One would believe this to be a giant sprawling organization with hundreds of members working hard on the ground, documenting evidence in Syria with photographs and video, while coordinating with foreign press to transparently and objectively ‘observe’ the ‘human rights’ conditions in Syria, as well as demonstrate their methodologies. Surely that is the impression the Western media attempts to relay to its readers,” noted analyst Tony Cartalucci, who has been following the Syrian conflict in detail.

“However, astoundingly, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is none of these things,” he pointed out, citing a Reuters report about the SOHR and the activist behind it. “Instead, it is merely a single man, sitting behind a computer in a British apartment, who alleges he receives ‘phone calls’ with information always incriminating the Syrian government, and ever glorifying the ‘Free Syrian Army.’”

The press, of course, has come under heavy fire for its shoddy reporting and misleading use of supposed sources. “Syria: major media outlets shaming themselves over Syrian Observatory for Human Rights,” noted a recent headline in the respected Modern Tokyo Times in an article exposing the SOHR “so-called entity” and the deceptive reporting in the West that relies so heavily on it. The use of biased “anonymous sources” has also attracted scrutiny.

Some of the most high-profile “democracy activists” on the ground in Syria, for instance, have beencaught staging events like massacres and killings in videos posted on YouTube. Sometimes the phony scenes have even been broadcasted by establishment media outlets such as CNN and the Qatari regime’s Al Jazeera. In several recent cases, slaughters blamed on the Assad regime — and widely touted as such by the international media — were later shown to have likely been committed by armed opposition groups.

Of course, none of these facts are meant to downplay the ruthless and barbarian character of the Syrian dictator, who at one time was torturing prisoners on behalf of the U.S. government as part of its “terror war.” Years of tyranny in Syria have shown conclusively that, despite his well-documented protection of persecuted Middle Eastern Christians now facing slaughter at the hands of the rebels, Assad is a nasty tyrant. And without a doubt, there are also many well-meaning people risking their lives to bring down the despotic regime, most of whom are probably unaware that the foreign-based “opposition” figureheads purporting to speak and plan for them are so closely linked to Western establishment.

There are also numerous other factions, including al-Qaeda, battling the regime in Syria right now. So despite the carefully constructed media-created perception of an opposition unified behind the Western establishment-backed SNC for “democracy,” there are actually numerous armed revolutionaries who are at odds with each other. Those divisions will eventually explode if and when Assad is finally ousted.

What the facts show, however, is that there is another, more sinister agenda to the war propaganda, the foreign backing of often-times brutal “rebels,” and the incessant calls for international military intervention to install a new regime in Syria. Amid all of the deception, it has become clear that there is much more going on than Western powers and the establishment media are admitting. And stuck in the crossfire between the establishment-backed rebels, Islamist terrorists, and the dictator’s armed forces, thousands of innocent civilians are being slaughtered.

NATO-FSA False Flag Alert: US Claims Syria ‘Moving Nerve Gas Out of Storage’

Tony Cartalucci, Contributor
Activist Post

Citing no evidence, and on the heels of yet another baseless “activist” report claiming a massacre has taken place in Homs, nameless US officials claimed to the Wall Street Journal that the Syrian government is taking chemical weapons out of storage for possible use “against anti-regime rebels or civilians, possibly in an ethnic cleansing campaign.”

Despite claiming to possess this information, the US officials refused to disclose the location these weapons were being moved to, nor the actual nomenclature of the weapons, stating only “they are most worried about Syria’s stockpiles of sarin gas.”

Image: The symbols for nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons. The West is the undisputed champion of deploying each of these weapons of mass destruction against their enemies – from nuclear bombs upon Japan, to depleted uranium and white phosphorus upon Iraq, to Agent Orange all across Vietnam – it stands to reason that these weapons would eventually end up in the hands of the their proxies as well. 

In mid-June, Russia Today had warned of a possible false-flag attack by NATO-backed militantsoperating under the cover of the so-called “Free Syrian Army” employing chemical weapons pilfered from devastated, militant-overrun Libya. The aim of the operation would be to create a justifiable impetus for overt Western military intervention, citing the use of chemical weapons against civilian populations as the most extreme attempt yet to manufacture otherwise nonexistent consensus for a repeat of NATO’s operations in Libya.

In, “WARNING: Possible NATO-FSA False Flag Attack in Syria,” it was explained how NATO’s militant proxies possessed not only the means and capabilities of carrying out such an attack, but the motivation and precedents of doing so – with the FSA already admittedly carrying out a deadly, nationwide terrorist bombing campaign killing scores of civilians per attack. The dissemination of Libyan weapons into the hands of militants operating in Syria has also been confirmed by governments and international media on numerous occasions, as has the fact that Libyan militants themselves (and here) have joined NATO’s covert operations to overthrow the government of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria.

The Syrian government has withstood over a year of withering, brutal attacks, economically, politically, diplomatically, throughout the Western controlled corporate media, and militarily by the West. One might then be troubled to fathom why the government would then use chemical weapons sure to provide the impetus needed to leap over the obstructions placed in the West’s way throughout the UN Security Council by Russia and China. The answer is simple, the Syrian government is not pondering the use of chemical weapons; NATO and its terrorist proxies are.

This, along with a recent roll-out of preplanned, over-hyped “defections” seeks to psychologically stampede the Syrian government from power, and if necessary, create a pretext to do so militarily.

Tony Cartalucci’s articles have appeared on many alternative media websites, including his own atLand Destroyer Report.


Prelude to the Destruction of Syria: Another Fake Massacre

Kurt Nimmo

July 16, 2012

The “massacre” of Tremseh, Syria, reported with standard sensationalistic fanfare over the weekend by the establishment media is another war propaganda fabrication.

Billed as “Syria’s Bloodiest Massacre” by Newsweek and Bloomberg, the event supposedly occurred on July 12 in the Sunni Muslim village of Tremseh in Hama province. The Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) – an Israel-centric neocon operation that specializes in hysterical anti-Muslim, pro-war propaganda – mentioned the “massacre” in the same breath as the suspected movement ofchemical weapons by the al-Assad regime.

“We have two significant developments and we cannot even get this passed?” Andrew Tabler, a fellow at WINEP, complained about the lack of action against Syria at the United Nations.

On Saturday, however, the New York Times reported that the alleged massacre at Tremseh was basically a scam perpetuated by the Syrian National Council, the CIA spawned terrorist council run by the Western intelligence asset the Muslim Brotherhood.

The number of casualties is now disputed – the establishment media initially claimed over 300 – and it turns out those who were killed were young men of fighting age, in other words they were “rebels” organized by the CIA and NATO to overthrow the al-Assad regime and were killed by the Syrian Army. There were no women’s names on the list of 103 “victims” obtained from activists in Homs, according to Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, described by the media as an opposition group based in Britain that has a network of contacts in Syria. (The man behind the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Rami Abdelrahman, is well received by the British establishment, including Foreign Secretary William Hague, and refuses to report on the death of “government loyalists,” that is to say Syrians killed by the CIA and U.S. and British special forces trained assassins.)

The sensationalized story exploited by WINEP neocons and the establishment media follows a now routine and dependable pattern of facile disinformation and propaganda. “After the high toll was announced from Tremseh, as was the case with Houla and other similar episodes, Western leaders lined up to condemn the mass killings of civilians,” the New York Times reports. “Col. Riad al-Assad, based in Turkey as the ostensible leader of the loose coalition of fighters called the Free Syrian Army, told the Arabic television network Al Jazeera on Thursday that there had been no opposition fighters in the town.”

As usual, the corporate media did not question or attempt to verify the claim that the Free Syrian Army was not involved. The FSA is, after all, a CIA and NATO spawned contrivance infested with Libyan members of al-Qaeda.

In May, reported on evidence revealing that the al-Houla massacre was also something other than reported by the establishment media and was designed to gain sympathy for a manufactured opposition and push for military intervention by NATO and the United Nations. The massacre was cynically exploited to call for a new round of sanctions against al-Assad in an effort to force his compliance with an international peace plan that was rejected by the FSA, we reported.

The fact we have exposed the lies and exaggerations of the global elite – from Iraq’s illusionary weapons of mass destruction to hysterical warnings of Syria’s chemical weapons – does not count for much. The Obama administration — now an imperial presidency in serious violation of the Constitution and the will of the American people — and its partners continue to push for all-out war despite the transparent qaulity and facile nature of disinformation put out every few days.

“Expect the Syrian civil war to escalate to the point where either the UN or Israel intervenes — in which case the prospects for war with Iran by election day, November 2012, are a good bet,” writesJustin Raimondo.

“The Syrian ‘crisis’ — one brought on by the Western powers and their sock-puppets in Qatar and Saudi Arabia — is but a prelude to the main event: the strangulation of Iran, via economic blockade, and eventual all-out war. What is happening in Syria today reflects, in miniature, the regime-change crowd’s plan for the entire region: unleashing Sunni fanatics in a religious war against all other sects, one that will liquidate the Christian and other minority communities. The ultimate target of this Sunni onslaught: the Shi’ites of Iran.”
