UN Peacekeeper Flees Takfiri Captivity


"A UN staffer with the peacekeeping mission in the Israeli occupied Syrian territory of the Golan Heights has managed to escape after nearly 8 months of being held by Takfiris operating in Syria.

Carl Campeau, a Canadian national advising the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) in Golan, said in an interview aired on Syria's state television on Thursday - that he was taken captive by the foreign-backed Takfiri militants in the suburbs of Damascus on Feb. 27.

'The terrorist kidnappers are from several countries...They are groups that do not know mercy.' Campeau stated."

"The Erdogan government has played a crucial role in the rebirth of al Qaeda after the death of Osama bin Laden. Al Qaeda was dead in the water. Then along came Erdogan and Obama, who resurrected al-Qaeda to topple Assad.

Turkey's long affair with the Jihadist terrorist gangs that are killing religious and ethnic minorities in Syria is hard to ignore. The only person more friendly with al Qaeda terrorists than Turkey's Prime Minister Erdogan is Senator John McCain..."

CIA Agents On Way to Syria   -  by Tony Cartalucci


"Turkey, a NATO member since the early 1950s appears to be guilty of the very crime Afghanistan was allegedly invaded, and to this day still occupied for, harboring Al Qaeda terrorists.

An army of Al Qaeda is and has been for nearly 3 years using southern Turkey as a safe-haven and staging ground for the invasion of Syria - disingenuously portrayed by the Western media as a 'civil war.'

Worst of all, these terrorists, literally carrying Al Qaeda's banner into battle, are passing CIA outposts, US, British, and French special operations training camps, [and don't be surprised if Canada's JTF2 pops up in dispatches, as well as certain revelations which may alter the perception that Canadian involvement in Syria is minimal. It isn't.]

and through Western funded refugee camps, on their way to commit a wide array of atrocities along and within Syria's borders.

This defies all explanations except one - the 'War on Terror' is a fraud..."

Growing Extremism in Next Phase of Syria War   -  by Tony Cartalucci


"...It was as early as 2007 when it was revealed that the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia were planning on building up extremists within and around Syria for the purpose of eventually overthrowing the government.

While the initial conflict was disingenuously portrayed as the spontaneous, militarization of unarmed protesters fighting against a 'brutal regime', in reality al-Nusra was already inside the country and operating on a national scale.

In fact the myth of 'moderates' was perpetuated solely to justify intervening directly on their behalf. With direct intervention taken off the table, it appears a new phase in the war has begun..."

laine lowe laine lowe's picture

It's amazing how many early morning CBC Radio 1 news items (5:00 and 6:00 am) get dropped from the news cycle by the time most people are up (7:00 and 8:00 am). I heard brief blip about UN inspectors failing to find any proof that the Syrian army had used sarin gas in that attack last summer that was ongoing news for weeks. Never heard or saw more of this.

So I took a look and this is the only thing that came up:



A United Nations analysis of samples taken from one of the two sites of the alleged Sarin attack outside Damascus, Syria, on Aug. 21 found zero chemical weapons agents, and one UN laboratory backed off its earlier claim to have found a residue that can result from degraded Sarin on the remnants of the missile, according to revisions in a new UN report.

This failure to find Sarin anywhere in Moadamiyah, a suburb south of Damascus, undercuts analyses by Human Rights Watch and the New York Times that relied on a vectoring of the two attack sites – the other in Zamalka/Ein Tarma to the east where Sarin was detected – to conclude that an elite unit of the Syrian military must have been responsible for the attacks that brought the United States close to war in Syria...


In a December article for the London Review of Books, investigative reporter Seymour Hersh confirmed that President Barack Obama misled the American people over the Aug. 21 Syrian chemical attack by cherry-picking evidence about the Syrian government’s presumed guilt and excluding suspicions about the rebels’ capability to produce their own Sarin gas.

Hersh also reported that he discovered a deep schism within the U.S. intelligence community over how the case was sold to pin the blame on President Assad. Hersh wrote that he encountered “intense concern, and on occasion anger” when he interviewed American intelligence and military experts “over what was repeatedly seen as the deliberate manipulation of intelligence.”

According to Hersh, “One high-level intelligence officer, in an email to a colleague, called the administration’s assurances of Assad’s responsibility a ‘ruse’. The attack ‘was not the result of the current regime’, he wrote.”..."

It's Putin Vs Bandar Bush on the Syrian Chessboard  -  by Pepe Escobar


"Although Washington (laughably) swears it doesn't know what was stolen from its 'non-lethal aid' package, the contents of the warehouses couldn't be jucier, a weaponizing orgy - M79 Osa rocket launchers, rocket-propelled grenades, 14.5 mm heavy machine guns and even Stinger missiles - generously supplied by Saudis, Qataris and Emiratis, obviously after a green light from Washington.

To essentially summarize the 'opposition' nebulae in Syria, there are absolutely negligible ideological differences between the FSA of General Doctor Engineer Idris, Bandar Bush's brigades of the Islamic Front and ISIL.

So, Bandar Bush's goons/foreign mercenaries - soon to number tens of thousands, and making as much as $2500 a month, are weaponized to the max. What's certain is that these lethal facts on the ground will make a mockery of anything transpiring out of Geneva-2 next month.

Washington knows it. Bandar Bush knows it, and Putin knows it. Ladies and gentlemen, place your bets."

The Bankruptcy Of the West's Syria Policy  -  by Patrick Cockburn


"...Confusion over what is happening is so great that Western leaders may not pay as much of a political price at home as they should for the failure of their Syrian policy. But it is worth recalling that the Syrian National Coalition and the FSA are the same people for whom the US and UK almost went to war in August, and saw as candidates to replace Assad in power in Damascus.

The US, Britain and France do not have many options left except to try to control the jihadi Frankenstein's monster that they helped create in Syria and which is already helping destabilise Iraq and Lebanon.

Turkey may soon regreat having given free passage to so many jihadi on their way to Syria..."

Moderate Syrian Opposition Are 'Phantom' Have No Influence on the Ground (and vid)


"...The term Syrian opposition is as wrong as could be. These groups are neither Syrian nor opposition. So they don't have, in their interests, the benefit of the people or of the country.

Foreign militia groups fighting inside the country are financed by the West, by Turkey, by the Gulf monarchies. These are not Syrian groups and these are not opposition.

They are not political groups working inside the country, more like militant gangs, sort of like the mafia, kidnapping people, killing civilians, occupying industrial complexes and selling the industrial goods to other countries or stealing them as happened in the industrial area of Aleppo.."
