Truce Under Threat: UNSC Debates New Resolution

http://rt.com/news/syria-border-clashes-blame-965/

"Meanwhile Damascus' spat with Ankara over a cross-border raid by Syrian troops reached a new height on Friday when the Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem accused Turkey of plotting against his country. Turkey has a strategy to shelter 'terrorist groups that enter Syrian territories, attack civilians and destroy the infrastructure,' Muallam said in a letter addressed to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki moon.

He said Turkey was harboring terrorists and turning a blind eye to the attacks they launch across the border to 'terrorize civilians at the border and force them to flee who Turkey so as to create a refugee crisis and then request human corridors and a buffer zone be implemented.'

Libyan Solution Increasingly Considered for Syria - by Robert Sibley

http://www.ottawacitizen.com/Opinion/Libyan+solution+increasingly+consid...

"Libya redux. The phrase sums up the shifting political sentiments - and rhetoric - toward Syrian President Bashar al Assad's regime as Western leaders edge closer to military intervention. At a meeting of the 14 - member Friends of Syria group in Paris on Thursday, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton raised the possibility of NATO involvement in Syria..

In a joint statement, the Friends of Syria, a group that includes France, the US, Canada, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, among others, said the Annan plan was the 'last hope'..

Nevertheless, the calls for a Libya-like intervention in Syria are increasing, and, it seems, being given serious consideration.."

Paris 'Friends of Syria' Meeting: Imperialst Powers Prepare for War Against Syria - by Johannes Stern

"...All of this means that the imperialist powers have decided the Libyan scenario will be repeated in Syria. As in the case of Libya, the most cynical lies are being used to justify a bloodbath. The war preparations against Syria are part of a broader plan to bring the whole Middle East under direct imperialist control.

In an interview with CNN on Thursday, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who met with Panetta in Washington, said that toppling Assad 'will weaken dramatically Iran'. He continued, 'it's the only kind of outpost of the Iranians inside the Arab world. The Iranians are not Arabic, and it will weaken dramatically both Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza, and it will be a very positive event..."

Slightly off the topic of peacekeepers:  I've been very very bothered by Amy Goodman's reporting on Syria.  Democracy Now! reports only the attacks on civilians by government troops. (That should be in  quotation marks, but I'll grant veracity for a minute, suspending my disbelief.)   NOTHING on terrorist attacks (assassinations, bombs, etc.) by  the armed opposition; nothing on the flow of arms and materiel from western powers, the Saudis and Qatar to those armed thugs; nothing on the infiltration of Islamist extremist fighters from Libya and other countries, through Turkey, Lebanon and Iraq; nothing on Turkey's role as NATO's go-fer. 

Rabblers who still watch or listen to DN!: is there a place for feedback or dialogue?  None of my suggestions or comments have ever been acknowledged, even with a one-liner.

As a donor, I'm losing my patience.  I think the outfit has grown too much and too fast and the large number of staffers can't help to conserve the intimacy of the program and the continuity of Amy Goodman's hands-on investigations and reporting...

Comments very welcome (by me, not DN).

Stuff White People Like n.135:
Humanitarian Intervention

http://www.jadaliyya.com/pages/index/4987/stuff-white-people-like-n.135-...

Quote:

Unbeknownst to yourself, your choice of regions for humanitarian intervention will reveal a great deal about the depth of your character. For instance, a focus on blasting Palestinians suggests a rather traditional, impulsive, frontier-Orientalist personality whereas opting for Syria says you're a more sensitive Kosovo intervention-type, who dreads a repeat Srebrenica. In contrast, caring for child soldiers in Africa tells the prospective white friend that you're not only extremely devoted to the well-being of the wretched of the earth, but also that you tend to be knowledgeable about regions that regularly drop from the radar of cutting-edge mainstream infotainment.

 

Yes, this is satire.

Concluding the activities of the conference, the participants stressed that the Arab and international silence towards what is taking place in Jerusalem is a participation in this crime.

The participants underscored rejection of terrorism and the need for differentiation between it and the legitimate resistance, calling for exposing the Zionist crimes against the Palestinian people.

America Shifts Gear for War on Iran  -  by Finian Cunningham

Nothing that is said by the major powers or the mass media on Houda and the civil war in Syria can be taken at face value.

How could the regime have ensured or at least contributed to its longevity by this act? What interests could this heinous act have served other than militarizing the existing UN presence; inviting foreign military intervention into Syria; increasing calls among NATO countries for establishing 'humanitarian corriders'; turning Sunnis against Alawites and further tarnishing the regime's already badly beaten public image?"

I find it somewhat exasperating that some can so easily be led again into the warparty's old sing-song 'follow the bouncing ball' routine leading from 'massacres' to 'humanitarian' intervention. The West's Great White shark-attack upon the next chosen meal has been carefully chosen and the long trajectory plain for all to see.  Why do we waste time arguing over whether the Syrian mackerel deserve eating or not. It's irrelevent and the Jaws theme is already playing in any case. As you say follow the money and the shrill war cries of Baird, Clinton and the other 'Friends of Syria'. Like Libya, all will become clear. It may take a while longer but if Syria goes Iran and/or Lebanon will likely follow. And I'd be willing to put up money that the ndp will have whatever the empire's having..

[url=http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=31122]SYRIA: Killing Innocent Civilians as part of a US Covert Op. Mobilizing Public Support for a R2P War against Syria[/url]

Michel Chossudovsky wrote:
US military doctrine envisages the central role of "massive casualty producing events" in which innocent civilians are killed.

The killings are deliberately carried out as part of a covert operation. The enemy is blamed for the resulting atrocities.

The objective is to justify a military agenda on humanitarian grounds. The doctrine dates back to 1962 Operation Northwoods.

Under a secret 1962 Pentagon Plan entitled Operation Northwoods, civilians in the Cuban community in Miami were to be killed as part of a covert operation. The objective was to trigger a "helpful wave of indignation in US newspapers". The killings were then to be blamed on the Cuban government of Fidel Castro.

The objective of this sinister plan --which Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara and President J. F. Kennedy-- refused to carry out, was to drum up public support for a war against Cuba:

"In the early 1960s, America's top military leaders reportedly drafted plans to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create public support for a war against Cuba.

Code named Operation Northwoods, the plans reportedly included the possible assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and even orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities.

The plans were developed as ways to trick the American public and the international community into supporting a war to oust Cuba's then new leader, communist Fidel Castro.

America's top military brass even contemplated causing U.S. military casualties, writing: "We could blow up a U.S. ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba," and, "casualty lists in U.S. newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation."

.... The documents show "the Joint Chiefs of Staff drew up and approved plans for what may be the most corrupt plan ever created by the U.S. government," writes Bamford. (U.S. Military Wanted to Provoke War With Cuba - ABC News emphasis added. This Secret Pentagon document was declassified and can be readily consulted (See Operation Northwoods, See also National Security Archive, 30 April 2001)

False flag gladiorama. Vicious neocon werewolves and monsters are itching for another mass murder and working to cut off and surround Iran and China. Blood for oil imperialist maneuvering for years to come.

I am really surprised that an organization like the BBC cannot be bothered to check sources and is ready to publish any image sent by a citizen activist, or journalist or whoever they are."

Marco di Lauro is careful not to seriously challenge the system that feeds him. Saying "an organization like the BBC cannot be bothered" is nonsense. Everything is checked to protect against libel. This was no accident. Saying this was propaganda, Marco di Lauro is able to immunize himself and immunize the system against criticisms about the total information warfare he is involved in producing and that we ordinary citizens are subjected to. His photo productions on Bosnia have supported the Politics of Genocide serving the establishment narratives that falsely frame western enemies. This is also an example of how a white elite foreigner uses the privilege and skin color to serve white power interests.

Marco di Lauro's photograph from Iraq used for the Syria propaganda was previously used to cover up U.S., NATO and Israel war crimes in Iraq by attributing blame for all these dead children's (?) bodies to the Saddam Hussein government. He is a pivotal agent in the psychological warfare that manufactures genocides and war crimes always committed by our enemies (Taliban, Omar Bashir, Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi, etc. etc. etc.) and covers up genocides and war crimes committed by our own governments, intelligence agencies, covert operations and war machines, and those of our allies (Israel, Britain, Rwanda, Uganda, Holland, Germany, etc., etc., etc.).

Lapdog newz media using photos of US war crimes to fit-up Syrian government with sword slayings. Newz media guilty of pro war propaganda and other crimes since Nuremberg.
