Rep. Omar: Obama is a Murderer with a “Pretty Face”

The presence of Ilhan Omar in Congress certainly is a breath of fresh air. It is rare for a Democrat to trash Obama, but Omar did so, calling out the former president’s misdeeds, including “droning of countries around the world.” 

“We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile,” she told Politico Magazine. 

The amazing thing about the “hope and change” president is that his drone war, invasion of Libya, and arming of murderous Salafi terrorists in Syria were supported by Democrats, with the exception of the minuscule antiwar faction that for some reason keeps voting Democrat. 

It’s time to begin the countdown on Rep. Omar. She will be removed from Congress. The political class will not allow freshman representatives to get away with calling out fellow Democrats—especially a lionized Obama—as war criminals and facilitators of mass murder. 

But it is not simply Democrats. The Republicans also hate Omar. The political class dedicated to forever war and crimes against humanity will remove this truth-teller from the halls of Congress. It’s only a matter of time.

Ted Cruz: Accessory to Israeli Grand Larceny

In the United States, as Rep Omar pointed out, politicians on both sides of the aisle in both Houses   routinely fall over themselves to pledge fealty and taxpayer dollars to Israel. 

The Trump administration is virtually owned by the state of Israel. Donald Trump has taken money from casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and other wealthy pro-Israel donors. His daughter converted to Orthodox Judaism in 2009. Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, also an Orthodox Jew, is close to the Netanyahu regime in Israel. Two established neocons, John Bolton and Elliot Abrams, and a convert, Mike Pompeo, are bedrock supporters of the Israeli mission to establish dominance in the Middle East, diminish the native Palestinian population, and steal land from its neighbors.

Enter Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz, a failed presidential candidate desperately trying to stay politically relevant. 

Cruz and the notorious neocon senator from Arkansas, Tom Cotton, introduced companion resolutions demanding the US recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, Syrian territory prior to the Six-Day War in 1967.

Colonel Jan Mühren, a former UN observer stationed in the Golan Heights and West Bank during the war, told a Dutch current affairs program Israel “provoked most border incidents as part of its strategy to annex more land,” illegal under international law, specifically the Fourth Geneva and Hague Conventions. The Golan was officially annexed by Israel in 1981. In December of that year, United Nations Security Council resolution 497 denounced Israel’s annexation. 

Israeli defense minister Moshe Dayan admitted in 1976 Israel had masterminded over 80% of the hostilities on the border with Syria. In 1997 The New York Times quoted Dayan as saying 

I know how at least 80 percent of the clashes there started. In my opinion, more than 80 percent, but let’s talk about 80 percent. It went this way: We would send a tractor to plow some area where it wasn’t possible to do anything, in the demilitarized area, and knew in advance that the Syrians would start to shoot. If they didn’t shoot, we would tell the tractor to advance farther, until in the end the Syrians would get annoyed and shoot. And then we would use artillery and later the air force also, and that’s how it was.

Israel has long coveted the resources of the Golan Heights. She planned to dispute the 1923 border and claim the Hula swamp and monopolize Lake Galilee. The stolen water would then be diverted downstream from the Jordan for exclusive use by Israel’s National Water Carrier. The Jordan Valley Unified Water Plan was paid for by the United States (see “Rivers of Discord: International Water Disputes in the Middle East”). 

The Israeli state also attempted to seize water resources in Lebanon. Its 1978 invasion of South Lebanon was codenamed “Operation Litani,” named after the Litani River, a vital water resource for the people of southern Lebanon. The PLO provided a convenient excuse for the invasion when it established what the corporate media at the time called a “quasi-state” (while completely ignoring an-Nakba, the forced expulsion—ethic cleansing—of around a million Palestinians, many thousands fleeing to southern Lebanon to escape massacres committed by the Israeli army). 

In other words, Israel stole hundreds of square miles of Syrian territory primarily to exploit its water resources and expand its border for the establishment of illegal settlements. Thanks to the United States and its domination of the United Nations, Israel has been allowed to violate numerous resolutions condemning its behavior vis-à-vis the Palestinians. 

For Ted Cruz and his cohort Tom Cotton, making the once divided Jerusalem—now largely ethnically cleansed of Arabs (this is called the “Judaization of Jerusalem” in politespeak)—the capitol of Israel was not hardly enough. Now Congress must recognize and support the outright theft of land and natural resources by Israel in direct violation of international law. 

The introduced bill states that it is “the sense of Congress that… Israel’s security from attacks from Syria and Lebanon cannot be assured without Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights” and “it is unrealistic to expect that the outcome of a peace agreement between Israel and Syria will be an Israeli withdrawal from the Golan Heights.” The proposed legislation states that recognizing Israel’s theft of the Golan is “in the United States national security interest,” which it obviously isn’t unless we consider Israel the fifty-first state of the US, which it may as well be. 

It remains to be seen if this bill will get traction in Congress. However, considering the staunch support for Israel in Congress, and the overwhelming influence of AIPAC and around sixty other Jewish lobbying groups (including the Anti-Defamation League, the American Zionist Council, the American Jewish Committee, and the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish American Organizations), the resolution may receive a warm and enthusiastic reception in Congress.

Trump Breaks Another Promise: Troops Will Remain in Syria

It was a mere two months ago the president of the United States declared he would leave Syria and bring home the troops. 

“Our boys, our young women, our men, they’re all coming back,” Trump said. “And they’re coming back now. We won. And that’s the way we want it. And that’s the way they want it.”

That was then, this is now. 

Now Trump has gone back on his promise, as he has gone back on most of his other promises, and US troops will continue to violate Syria’s national sovereignty for the foreseeable future. 

Mr. Trump has yet to admit—his massive ego won’t let him—that at best the US played a minor role in eradicating the Islamic State, a terror organization that began as a Pentagon psyop during the Iraqi resistance to George W. Bush’s invasion. 

In fact, it was Russia and Iran in coordinated with the Syrian Arab Army that neutralized the threat, but you won’t hear Trump or the corporate media he supposedly detests talk about this. If you ask the average citizen, he or she will likely say it was the US that singlehandedly beat the Islamic State. (See David William Pear, “Who Really Defeated ISIS.”)

“A small peace keeping group of about 200 will remain in Syria for period of time,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said last month. 

The Pentagon, however, notorious for decades of deceit and lies, said the actual number will be double that mentioned by Sanders. The actual number is likely triple or quadruple the official estimate—possibly more, much more. 

This illegality, this violation of international law and the UN Charter (the US signed this document in 1945 with the founding of the UN), represents a cornerstone of US foreign policy. The US has invaded 70 nations, engaged in genocide, economic warfare, and has fomented terror since the founding of the nation (see Dr. Gideon Polya’s “The US Has Invaded 70 Nations Since 1776—Make 4 July Independence From America Day”). 

ISIS is not and has never been the reason the United States bombed targets and killed thousands of Syrian civilians. The war on ISIS was about establishing a military presence in Syria, the excuse being an effort to counter Iran’s geopolitical aims.

The centerpiece of this strategy is Israel, which has for years called for an outright invasion of Iran, using the fallacious pretext of nuclear weapons. Like Iraq under Saddam Hussein, Iran doesn’t possess nuclear weapons. This has been verified by the International Atomic Energy Agency. The agency also reported Iran was in compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which Trump ultimately killed. Nonetheless, the US and Israel continue to push the absurd fallacy that Iran will nuke Israel, thus inviting annihilation by Israel with its nukes, which are undeclared and have been for decades. 

It was obvious from the start when Trump surrounded itself with generals, and then a rabble of neocons (Bolton, Abrams, and Pompeo), that in no way would he live up to his promise to make America noninterventionist again, which it never was (see above). 

It is safe to say the MAGA troops faithfully support of his policies, formulated by neocons and their cousins, the “humanitarian interventionists.” Take a look at the Breitbart and Drudge Report websites. There is virtually no criticism of Trump’s foreign policy and the focus is invariably on the border and the twists and turns of an orchestrated “civl war” between the “New Right,” or “Alt-right,” and the Left. It would seem Breitbart is more interested in Melania Trump’s footwear than endless war, while Drudge peppers his front page with nonsense about celebrities and sports mixed in with news stories on the border and the evilness of Hillary Clinton and all things Democrat. The new distraction is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She competes daily with the fake Mueller investigation.

It’s not fake news. It’s diversionary news.

It’s fair to say most of Trump’s hardcore MAGA supporters believe Make America Great Again is achieved by invading small, usually defenseless countries. In the case of Breitbart, Drudge, et al, these issues are ignored altogether. It should be kept in mind Breitbart got its start in Jerusalem.

“One thing we specifically discussed [while on a junket to Israel]… was our desire to start a site that would be unapologetically pro-freedom and pro-Israel. We were sick of the anti- Israel bias of the mainstream media and J-Street. By launching Breitbart Jerusalem, the journey comes full circle and a promise between two friends is fulfilled. And in a very real sense, Breitbart News Network returns to its roots,“ wrote Larry Solov for Breitbart in November 2013 (see previous link where there is a photo of Andrew Breitbart meeting with Bibi Netanyahu). 

Donald Trump is now a card-carrying neocon doing the work of Israel in the Middle East. His betrayal of a promise to get our troops out of Syria (and Iraq and Afghanistan) in addition to his collaboration with Israel and its crimes—above all its slow-motion genocide of the Palestinians—should stand as proof positive Trump is more of the same, never mind the personality quirks and the raving narcissism he displays on a daily basis.

Tucker Carlson is Wrong About Neocon “Failures” 

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is wrong about the neocons. 

In an article posted at The American Conservative, Carlson argues that the neocons—he singles out Bill Kristol and Max Boot—didn’t achieve their objectives after 9/11, and yet they are considered foreign policy experts. 

The primary objective of multiple illegal invasions, according to Carlson and much of the corporate media, was an attempt to bring “democracy” to the Arab and Muslim Middle East and, at the same time, establish American primacy and “leadership” in the region. 

This is the feel-good explanation, but it is a mile off the mark. In fact, the neocon project in the Middle East during the second Bush administration was a success. It had nothing to do with a naive effort to gift Arabs with democracy or overthrow brutal dictators enslaving their people, as we were told. 

The mass murder of more than a million people, the pulverization of societies and cultures, has nothing to do with a failed and noble attempt to enlighten and free benighted Arabs and Muslims. 

It was and is part of a long-term plan devised in Israel and aided and abetted by a single issue pushed by Jewish neocons and their gentile counterparts—murder, intimidation, and the weakening and balkanization of neighboring Arab states. 

This cannot be dismissed as a conspiracy theory. It was spelled out in the Personal Diary of Moshe Sharett, published as “Israel’s Sacred Terrorism” in Hebrew in 1979. Sharett was head of the Jewish Agency’s Political Department from 1933 to 1948 and then became Israel’s first foreign minister (1948 1956), under David Ben Gurion, and was prime minister in 1954 and 1955.

Livia Rokach’s book documents “the rationale and mechanics of Israel’s ‘Arab policy’ in the late 1940s and the 1950s. The policy portrayed, in its most intimate particulars, is one of deliberate Israeli acts of provocation, intended to generate Arab hostility and thus to create pretexts for armed action and territorial expansion,” writes Naseer H. Aruri in the book’s preface. He characterizes these policies as Lebensraum, or living space, a German term used by the Nazis when they invaded Eastern Europe and Russia (Operation Barbarossa). 

The monograph is replete with examples of Israeli subversion and provocation against its neighbors. From the planned occupation of Syria, the creation of a Maronite state in Lebanon and an effort to topple Arab nationalist Gamal Nasser in Egypt, Sharett’s diary reveals the true nature of the Zionist state and its racist ideology. Because of this, the book is absent from the official historiography. 

Further elaboration of this long-term plan is spelled out in A Strategy for Israel in the Nineteen Eighties, authored by Oded Yinon and published by Kivunim (Directions), the journal of the Department of Information of the World Zionist Organization.

“The plan operates on two essential premises,” writes Khalil Nakhleh. “To survive, Israel must 1) become an imperial regional power, and 2) must effect the division of the whole area into small states by the dissolution of all existing Arab states. Small here will depend on the ethnic or sectarian composition of each state. Consequently, the Zionist hope is that sectarian-based states become Israel’s satellites and, ironically, its source of moral legitimation.” (Emphasis added.)

In the document’s foreword, the late Israel Shahak explains the “idea that all the Arab states should be broken down, by Israel, into small units, occurs again and again in Israeli strategic thinking… The plan follows faithfully the geopolitical ideas current in Germany of 1890-1933, which were swallowed whole by Hitler and the Nazi movement, and determined their aims for East Europe. Those aims, especially the division of the existing states, were carried out in 1939-1941, and only an alliance on the global scale prevented their consolidation for a period of time.”

The American neocons—including key players Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, and David Wurmser and his wife, Meyrav—further tweaked the plan with their A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm in 1996. The document, presented to then Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, calls for trashing a “comprehensive peace” with the Palestinians and undermining Israel’s neighbors, most notably Syria and Iraq. 

“Israel can shape its strategic environment, in cooperation with Turkey and Jordan, by weakening, containing, and even rolling back Syria. This effort can focus on removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq—an important Israeli strategic objective in its own right—as a means of foiling Syria’s regional ambitions,” the authors write. 

The latter part of this plan was realized less than seven years after the document was submitted to Netanyahu. Its partial implementation cost more than a million Iraqi lives. 

Unfortunately, observers like Tucker Carlson and others in the corporate media continue to argue the neocon plan is an abysmal failure, when in fact it continues to move forward, albeit with mixed success, notably in Syria where Saudi and US supported Salafists failed to overthrow the elected government. The same cannot be said for Iraq and Libya. 

President Donald Trump’s over-the-top support for Israel has rekindled neocon aspirations for Israeli dominance and Arab misery and submission. His son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is a supporter of the vicious and often murderous settler movement in Israel. Trump’s main benefactor during the election was Sheldon Adelson, a casino tycoon who spends millions electing folks supporting the apartheid state of Israel and its version of manifest destiny. 

It is safe to say the neocons are back after an eight year hiatus and driving US foreign policy, as the appointment of John Bolton and Elliot Abrams demonstrate. The pow-wow in Warsaw made it known in no uncertain terms the next phase of the plan is to take out Iran and insert a gang of terrorists—the People’s Mujahedin of Iran, led by the cult of personality figure Maryam Rajavi—who will take orders from Washington and Tel Aviv (or Jerusalem). 

Iran is to be split up along ethnic lines—Kurdish, Gilaki, Mazandarani, Luri, Talysh, Balochi, and Azerbaijanis—and squabbles and turf wars between these groups and others will ensure order out of chaos and allow the United States and Israel to divide, conquer, and rule. 

This is what Tucker Carlson and the corporate talking heads need to point out, not “failures” that are in fact victories as described in documents readily available and yet ignored.

Trump: Staying in Syria for Israel

Poor Trump. He keeps making an idiot of himself.

The latest case: Syria. Trump said the troops will be coming home. But that promise has suddenly changed, as I knew it would.

The troops will stay in Syria, he said this weekend.

So there it is. The US is in Syria for Israel, to watch Iran. Congress wants the troops to remain and Congress is owned in part—a large part—by Israel and its radical Likudniks, including Trump’s son-in-law.

Leaving Syria? Don’t Make Me Laugh

It only took a few days for the Trumpster to walk back his latest bit of flatulence masquerading as a principled promise. 

After talking with arch neocon simpatico Senator Lindsey Graham, Trump said the removal of troops from Syria will be a slow train—or more likely a train stalled on the tracks.

There are some things the Deep State with its penchant for endless war profiteering and creative destruction—basically order out of chaos and mass murder—will not tolerate. Demonitizing war and organized mass murder top the list of no-nos. 

First and foremost, the president does not call the shots on foreign policy—despite the “command-in-chief” descriptor—the hidden elite does. 

The Donald can tweet until he is blue in the face, but little will come of it, especially now that a slew of new Trump haters are being sworn into Congress, thus further tilting the deck in favor of the elite. They will not rest until until Trump is bounced from office—either through impeachment on dubious grounds or by way of the 25th Amendment attached to a Constitution they hate—and Mike Pence the Christian Zionist is put into place like Gerald Ford after Nixon, doomed to serve a couple years at best. 

After Trump is dethroned, the public can once again forget about illegal wars and crimes against humanity committed in their name (similar to the crimes committed in the name of the German people some eighty years ago). 

Trump reminded the people of these transgressions, which were buried under a ton of detritus as the Donald declared he would “bomb the shit” out of the Islamic State, a psyop gone toxic. Of course, this resulted in bombing the shit out of innocent civilians, thousands of buried under re-bounced rubble, not that the American people bothered to notice, same as they didn’t care about US assistance in horrific Saudi war crimes in Yemen. 

Point is: put zero credence in the words of Trump or, for that matter, any other statist politician, all whom are inveterate liars and immoral scoundrels. 

It doesn’t matter who you vote for every couple years—the same master is served (the financial class and corporatists) and short of a contemporized French Revolution (sans guillotine), nothing is likely to change.

US and Israel Knew Wahhabi Head-choppers Wouldn’t Win in Syria

Investigative journalist Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed has dredged up important document from the massive WikiLeaks archive. It is a draft of an internal US Marine Corps’  Intelligence Department forecasting paper produced in coordination with Strafor, often referred to as the private CIA, states a jihadi overthrow of Bashar al-Assad as highly improbable, if not impossible. 

The secret military secret document reveals “that both early on and toward the later phase of the conflict, senior US military officials had not given any credence to the democratic aspirations of Syrian protestors, but had merely sought to use them as a tool to sideline expanding Iranian influence. Toppling the regime was dismissed as a highly improbable scenario, with officials indicating they believed the survival of an authoritarian Baathist governing structure—with or without Assad—was inevitable,” writes Nafeez. 

It was obvious after the second invasion of Iraq the neocons have absolutely no desire to bring democracy to the Middle East. In fact, they are focused on the exact opposite in Syria—installing another Ba’athist and crushing any hope of so-called democracy while at the same time destroying the country.

Despite realizing early on Gulf Emirate funding and arming of head-chopping Sunni Wahhabi maniacs inserted in Syria with the assistance of the CIA would be incapable of overthrowing Bashar al-Assad, the policy of supporting them continued.

Not because they believed the “rebels” would be successful, but rather that destroying the country and killing hundreds of thousands of people would force a regime change from within. 

More than Syria and its Shi’a Alawites, the fossilized kingdoms of the Persian Gulf along with the US and Israel are laser focused on destroying Iran. 

Back in the 1950s, Israel wasn’t focused on Iran. It was ruled by a CIA-installed monarch, so overthrowing and destroying the country wasn’t on Israel’s radar until after the Iranian Islamic revolution in the late 1970s. 

Instead, according to the dairies of Moshe Sharett, a former Israeli president in the early 1950s, the government was busy destabilizing its Arab neighbors, mainly Syria and Lebanon, the former through terrorist attacks (the hijacking of a Syrian passenger plane) and military confrontations along the border (on Lake Tiberias and elsewhere), the latter through invasion and attempting to install a Maronite government that would deal harshly with Palestinian refugees (as they did in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camp massacres). 

Israel is so desperate to take out Iran—and kill thousands of its citizens—it has lately resorted to easily debunked claims Iran is secretly working on a nuke. 

Since the election of Donald Trump, the Israelis have cozied up to US diplomats, including the UN ambassador Nikki Haley. Jared Kushner is an avowed Zionist. Trump’s national security adviser is a confirmed neocon psychopath and his secretary of state is an anti-Iran zealot. 

Rumors are afoot on social media saying Israel plans another attack in Syria. This will most likely result in downed Israeli F-35s now that Syria has advanced antiaircraft systems provided by Russia. 

Iran is not a threat to the United States, although it might be to Israel if it keeps pushing the envelope in Syria, killing Iranians invited into the country long with Russia by its leader. 

Because Israel and the United States are connected at the hip, any serious attack on Israeli aircraft illegally bombing and killing in Syria will likely bring the US into any conflict and face-to-face with Russia. 

Are you ready to sacrifice yourself for the apartheid settler policies of a racist and ethnic cleansing state? If the US and Russia start taking shots at each other, an escalation is all but ensured. War with Russia—and China, now part of a military pact with  Russia—will not be pretty. It may end life on planet Earth.

Israel Loses Its Blank Check to Bomb Syria

Russia has decided to do something about the Israelis setting up its surveillance plane to be shot down by Syria’s outdated S-200 missile system last week. It will now install its latest snd more advanced version of the antiaircraft system, the S-300. It is reportedly capable of identifying friend from foe.

No doubt this is freaking out the Israelis. Prior to this development, they had pretty much a free hand to target anything they wanted in Syria. It’s said they have so far conducted over 200 bombing raids inside the country without fear of a response from the Syrians or the Russians. 

Russia doesn’t want an escalation and that’s the primary reason they have not responded to free-wheeling Israeli attacks. That’s the reason Putin talked with Netanyahu. 

The Likudnik PM made a fool out of Putin by then “framing” the Russian surveillance plane to take the hit. Putin played down this angle. He said the shoot-down was a “chain of tragic, fatal circumstances.”

Russia’s Defense Ministry said something different when it announced the delivery of advanced S-300s on Putin’s orders.

“[Krelmin spokesman Dmitry Peskov]… repeated Moscow’s accusations that Israel was to blame for the crash: ‘No doubt that according to our military experts, deliberate action by Israeli pilots was the reason for the tragedy and this cannot but harm our (Russia-Israeli) ties,’” Reuters reports. 

Israel shot back by saying it would “work to improve” what turned out to be a worthless “deconfliction” agreement between the two countries. The Israelis also said they won’t stop killing people in Syria. If Russia is serious, the missile placement will put a damper on Israel’s freedom to target and bomb whatever it wants in Syria. 

“Israel says its air strikes on Syria are not a threat to Russia’s ally Assad, but that it must carry them out to halt arms shipments to Iranian-backed Lebanese group Hezbollah. It has made repeated efforts to persuade Moscow not to sell S-300s to Syria, as it fears this would hinder its aerial capability.”

It appears the S-300 message wasn’t strictly limited to the Israelis. 

I have yet to see this reported anywhere else, but if true it will give the Russian-hating  war party an excuse to further ratchet up hostilities and possibly lead to a direct confrontation between Russia and the United States. 

Others claim S-300 batteries are already in Syria.

It remains to be seen what will happen if the Russian system takes out an Israeli fighter jet. This may be used by the Israelis to beg the Americans to start hitting Russian targets. On the other hand, it may shut down Israel’s wanton and murderous behavior for good.

Like the Sword of Damocles, WWIII hangs above on heads suspended by a thread.

Syria, the United Nations, and the  Slobodan Milosevic Treatment

It’s long been obvious the United Nations is a rubber stamp lapdog of the United States. It set the stage for a decade of sanctions that killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and piled sanctions of Libya that resulted in the US and NATO (another lapdog) taking military action that killed around 30,000 Libyans. 

Now that supposedly august body has signaled it will investigate war crimes in Syria. 

The Associated Press reports the “resolution adopted by the assembly said the body, known as the ‘International, Impartial and Independent Mechanism,’ would help collect and analyze evidence of violations of human rights and international humanitarian law ‘to facilitate and expedite fair and independent criminal proceedings.’”

There is nothing fair and independent about it. If it were truly fair, the top human rights violator, the United States government and its Pentagon, would be at the top of the UN’s to-do list. 

The US is responsible for the “civil war” in Syria. It has agitated for “regime change” since at least 2005 under the guise of “democracy promotion,” well before the CIA sent operatives—many were “rebels” that participated in the US-NATO Libyan massacre—into the city of Deraa to stir up trouble.

“The staged uprising in Deraa had some locals in the street who were unaware of their participation in a CIA-Hollywood production,” writes Steven Sahiounie. “They were the unpaid extras in the scene about to be shot. These unaware extras had grievances, perhaps lasting a generation or more, and perhaps rooted in Wahhabism, which is a political ideology exported globally by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Royal family and their paid officials.”

The Libya rebels who killed Gaddafi were at the Omari Mosque in Deraa stockpiling weapons. “The participation of local Muslim Brotherhood followers, who would assist the foreign Libyan mercenaries/terrorists, was an essential part of the CIA plan, which was well scripted and directed from Jordan,” Sahiounie explains. 

“The CIA agents running the Deraa operation from their office in Jordan had already provided the weapons and cash needed to fuel the flames of revolution in Syria.   With enough money and weapons, you can start a revolution anywhere in the world.”

It was this manufactured “revolution” that resulted in a brutal war and the death of more than half a million people, all of them—according to the corporate propaganda media—slaughtered by al-Assad and his Syrian Arab Army. 

You can bet this wasn’t a topic of discussion at the United Nations. The attempt to indict and prosecute al-Assad and other Syrian officials for war crimes is undoubtedly a directive handed down by the United States and its bulldog ambassador, Nikki Haley. 

This politically motivated “investigation” by the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council—which, incidentally, the US removed itself from—will base its prearranged conclusion on a fairy tale: the unproven and White Helmet staged fake chemical attacks in Syria. 

Because al-Assad will not leave office willingly (having been elected by the Syrian people), the only option appears to be the Slobodan Milošević treatment. This Serbian, the former president of the late Yugoslavia—which was chopped into bantustans by NATO and the United States following a sustained bombing campaign by Bill Clinton—was arrested and sent to The Hague to face prosecution for war crimes. He subsequently died while in confinement. 

I’m not saying Milošević was a nice guy. It is said he killed his political opponents. However, his crimes, when compared to the behavior of US client states and partners—Israel and Saudi Arabia come to mind—are paltry by way of comparison. 

It should be noted that after Milošević died, the International Court of Justice concluded separately in the Bosnian Genocide Case that there was no evidence linking him to genocide committed by Bosnian Serb forces during the Bosnian War.

This is basically the same routine the US and the UN want to pull on al-Assad. It’s a Plan B to have him removed following the failure of the US, its partners and proxies, to remove him through orchestrated violence and murder. 

And it is perfectly timed. Last week Syria’s UN ambassador, Bashar Ja’afari, said in a letter to General Assembly President Miroslav Lajcak that the upcoming investigation is another destructive action by its sponsors, Qatar and Liechtenstein.

Ja’afari hit the nail square on the head. He said the UN decision arrives during a “delicate stage” in negotiations to end the war. He added “some governments… have supported chaos and terrorism in Syria” as part of “their war on global terrorism,” which is farcical as the White Helmet chemical attacks. 

Furthermore, the Syrian UN ambassador said the body has ditched its supposed neutrality—which, of course, it never had—and is obedient as a trained lapdog. He charged the UN is responding “to political and financial pressure and the polarization practices of some member states, especially those supporting the investigative body.”

Meanwhile, the US and Israel continue to violate the UN charter by bombing and occupying a significant part of the country. These two renegade nations should be at the top of the list of candidates to be indicted and prosecuted for war crimes. 

But then a lapdog never bites the hand that feeds.

Media Ignores Israeli Role in Downing of Russian Aircraft in Syria

After the Syrians accidentally targeted a Russian surveillance aircraft over the Mediterranean and the Russians pinned the blame on Israel, the corporate propaganda media scrambled to spin the story. 

The Pentagon and State Department directed media insinuate the tragedy was the fault of the Russians, who got in the way of yet another—there are hundreds—illegal Israeli attack on Syria. The illegality of these persistent attacks on Syrian sovereignty is rarely if ever pointed out by the national security state’s scribes and teleprompter readers. 

Here is what these lackluster careerists in service to the state ignore: the Israelis used the Russian aircraft as cover. 

“The Israeli pilots used the Russian plane as cover and set it up to be targeted by the Syrian air defense forces. As a consequence, the Il-20, which has radar cross-section much larger than the F-16, was shot down by an S-200 system missile,” a spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Defense said in a statement. 

Russia said it reserves the right to take “commensurate measures” against Israel in response. However, Russia will do little beyond symbolic gestures. It knows these kind of provocations have the potential to start a real war—not another proxy war fought by fanatical Salafists—and the consequence of such an escalation will likely result in nuclear war and the end of life on planet Earth. 

If you do an internet search of the above Russian ministry quote, the results returned are either from Russian or alternative news websites, not the corporate media which has long been assigned the role of covering up—or if that’s not possible, ignoring entirely—the serial crimes of two of the world’s most notorious war criminal nations. 

 The trickery and deception employed in the downing of the Russian aircraft is normal day-to-day behavior for Israel. It makes no excuse for trying to start larger wars in the Middle East, wantonly and freely murdering Palestinians (many locked up in the world’s largest open-air prison, Gaza), and manipulating Congress and the idiot savant Trump—he is proficient in one area: promotion of his own oversized ego—into moving to cancel the First Amendment and criminalizing all who criticize the Zionist settler state. 

If Israel and Saudi Arabia with its bounty of oil didn’t exist, the United States would be far less interested in the Middle East. Then again, the corporate and bankster empire is obsessive-compulsive when it comes to meddling in the affairs of foreign nations, kickstarting wars, and forcing neoliberal economic suicide upon other nations. 

Putin may parley with Netanyahu, but Israel’s participation in these handshake events amounts to little more than window-dressing, a cover for more deception. It is, after all, Mossad’s guiding principle, reflected in its motto: “By way of deception thou shalt do war,” which is taken from Proverbs 24:6 (the Proverbs of Solomon) in the Hebrew Bible, what the Christians call the Old Testament. 

The Hebrew Bible is an instruction manual for violence, murder, and genocide. Moses and Joshua wiped out the Canaanites and Saul annihilated the Amalekites. In Deuteronomy 20:16-18, the Jewish God tells the Israelites all the Canaanites must be murdered, otherwise they will “teach you to follow all the detestable things they do in worshipping their gods,” which is an unforgivable sin. 

The Hebrew God portrayed in the Old Testament detests all people who are not Jewish—the Chosen People—and this is made evident in Exodus 12:29–32. 

Christian scholars have tried to either explain away or support the pathological nature of the Old Testament God. Meanwhile, the Israeli state looks to the old book for spiritual guidance and instruction. 

Recall Rabbi Yisrael Rosen during Israel’s last invasion of Lebanon. 

“All of the Palestinians must be killed; men, women, infants, and even their beasts,” he declared. Rosen cited the Torah when he advocated genocide. “Annihilate the Amalekites from the beginning to the end. Kill them and wrest them from their possessions. Show them no mercy. Kill continuously, one after the other. Leave no child, plant, or tree. Kill their beasts, from camels to donkeys.”

Rosen defined the Palestinians as the “Amalekites of this age.”

It is unclear what will now happen. Russia has complained numerous times about the murderous behavior of the Israeli state, and yet has not moved to do something about it. This is understandable. The Russians and the rest of the world do not want to die from radiation sickness or starve to death during a nuclear winter. 

Russian inaction is a big flashing green light for the Israelis. They have bombed Syria over 200 times without a significant response. They know if Russia or Iran retaliate for these attacks which undoubtedly killed an unknown number of civilians, they can count on the stupid Americans to fight to last battle, as portrayed in the final Chapter of the Jewish bible, the so-called Book of Zechariah, the Apocalypse.
