Syrian rebels used Sarin nerve gas, not Assad’s regime: U.N. official

Syrian rebels used Sarin nerve gas, not Assad’s regime: U.N. official

Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior U.N. diplomat said Monday.

Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.

But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons, according to the BBC, but she added that more investigation was needed.

Damascus has recently facing growing Western accusations that its forces used such weapons, which President Obama has described as crossing a red line. But Ms. del Ponte’s remarks may serve to shift the focus of international concern.

Media Conspiracy over Cologne Mass Sex Attack

Media Conspiracy over Cologne Mass Sex Attack

The mass sex attacks carried out by nonwhite refugee-invaders in Cologne, Hamburg, and Stuttgart have definitively exposed the manner in which the controlled media attempts to manipulate news—and how the advent of the Internet and social media has completely undermined their previous control over information flows.

The attempted cover-up started with clear political orders from the very top of the German government to the Cologne police. Evidence of this comes from the official police website in Cologne.

In the very first Cologne police report of the events of New Year’s Eve, as published on their official website, it was said that the evening had gone off “in a relaxed atmosphere” and the celebrations in the city’s cathedral square had been “largely peaceful.”

The incredible lies spouted by the police in Cologne can still be seen on their website here, but the New Observer has taken screen shots of that page just in case they see fit to take it down after reading this exposé.

Blair welcomes Syria airstrikes – No surprise there then !

Blair welcomes Syria airstrikes – No surprise there then !

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has praised the British government’s decision to extend airstrikes against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) from Iraq into Syria, calling it an “important” decision to confront threats “within our home.”

Speaking to an audience at the Library of Congress in Washington, Blair insisted that defeating the terror group on the ground is only the first step in tackling extremism, claiming the ideology itself must be eradicated.

On Wednesday evening British MPs voted overwhelmingly in favor of launching airstrikes against IS targets in Syria.

Mere hours after the vote, RAF Tornado jets carried out bombing raids on oilfields in the east of the country.

However, Blair cautioned that airstrikes are “only a necessary beginning.”

“For Europe, there is a huge calculation to be made. This security threat is at our door. It is actually within our home,” he said.

“We have a paramount interest in defeating it, which is why last night’s vote in the British House of Commons was so important.

“Europe has to create, within its nation states, the armed force capability to allow us not just to play our part, but to lead.”

Blair, who led the UK into the invasion of Iraq in 2003, said extremist ideology must be tackled in order to defeat IS. He claimed key aspects of IS ideology stretch “deep into parts of Muslim society.”

“A belief in innate hostility between Islam and the West is not the preserve of the few.

“Of course a large majority of Muslims completely reject Daesh (IS)-like jihadism and the terrorism which comes with it.

“However, in many Muslim countries large numbers also believe that the CIA or Jews were behind 9/11. Clerics who proclaim that non-believers and apostates must be killed or call for jihad against Jews have Twitter followings running into millions … The ideology has deep roots. We have to reach right the way down and uproot it.”

Danger is imminent, we need to bomb Syria – UK defense secretary

Danger is imminent, we need to bomb Syria – UK defense secretary

Ahead of the vote on expanding the UK’s air operation against Islamic State to Syria, the British defense secretary said terror attacks similar to Paris and Brussels could ‘easily happen’ in London. He called for preventive airstrikes on terrorists in Syria.

In an exclusive interview with the Telegraph, Britain’s Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said: “The threat to the UK is extremely high. An attack is highly likely so we have to respond.”

“What happened in Paris and Brussels could easily happen in London,” Fallon said, adding that it could as well be Manchester or Glasgow.

The defense secretary urged against pulling punches against Islamic State (IS, former ISIS/ISIL) terrorists.

“These aren’t people you can negotiate with. You can only deal with them by force,” he said.

The Royal Air Force (RAF) is already “making a difference in Iraq,” Fallon said, adding “we need to hit ISIL harder and deal with this death cult once and for all.”

The defense secretary’s interview comes a day after “Don’t Bomb Syria” mass protests in London, where thousands of protesters took to the streets to make their voices heard in a rally organized by the Stop the War coalition.

US sends special forces into Syria to act as human shields for terrorist groups

US sends special forces into Syria to act as human shields for terrorist groups

Editor’s note: who said that it’s ok for the United States military to send troops into a sovereign nation and support terrorist groups who want to destroy the government? Is this not a war crime and a crime against humanity?

Obama’s decision to send Special Forces into Syria is being widely viewed as a US military escalation in the country.

The troop dispatch also signals that the US trying to forestall Russian successes in wiping out Washington’s regime-change assets in Syria.

In short, the US Special Forces are being used as “human shields” to curb Russian air strikes against anti-government mercenaries, many of whom are instrumental in Washington’s regime-change objective in Syria.

First of all, we need to view a host of developments, including the hastily convened “peace talks” in Vienna, as a response by the US and its allies to the game-changing military intervention by Russia. That intervention, beginning on September 30, has not only dealt massive blows to militants, it has completely changed the balance of forces to give the Assad government the upper hand in the war against foreign-backed extremists. That, in turn, has sent the US-led powers trying to topple Damascus into disarray.

US vs Russia military showdown is INEVITABLE top MI6 chief warns

US vs Russia military showdown is INEVITABLE top MI6 chief warns

Former MI6 chief Sir John Sawers said there is a “real risk of a clash” as tensions boil between both superpowers amid Russia’s bombing crusade in Syria.

His warning comes as Defence Secretary Michael Fallon announced Britain is to station a “small number” of troops in the Baltic states in a further move to deter Russian aggression.

Mr Sawer said: “It is going to be quite hard to continue this campaign unless there is a degree of military co-ordination between the Russians and the West.

“You can’t really have two air forces fighting different campaigns aimed at different objectives over the same territory without the real risk of a clash.”

He said there was a “degree of co-existence” between the Assad regime and the terror group as part of the Syrian dictator’s strategy to “squeeze out” the moderate opposition.

UK troops to go to Africa to help counter extremists

UK troops to go to Africa to help counter extremists

British troops will be sent to Africa to help counter the threat of Islamist extremists in the region, David Cameron has said.

The Prime Minister said that up to 300 soldiers will be deployed in South Sudan as part of a peace-keeping mission while a further 70 will be sent to Somalia to support attempts to defeat the terrorist group Al-Shabab.

Mr Cameron suggested that bringing stability to both countries could help ease the migration crisis that is seeing hundreds of thousands of migrants cross the Mediterranean to reach Europe.

And he said that it is right that Britain is “stepping up and playing a greater role”.

He also suggested bringing stability to both countries could help ease the migration crisis that is seeing hundreds of thousands of migrants cross the Mediterranean to reach Europe.

All the troops sent to the region will be involved in peace-keeping efforts rather than any active combat, with a focus on training, logistical support and engineering help.

Syria: US wants to topple Assad, not ISIS…

Syria: US wants to topple Assad, not ISIS…

It was only two years ago that western governments were looking for excuses to go in and invade Syria in order to topple the former eye doctor and now President, Bashar al-Assad.

Obama sought congress approval to go in and take out Syrian army forces but was rejected. Whilst the UK parliament voted 285 to 272 not to attack Syria as Prime Minister David Cameron had wanted to do.

With no luck in removing the Syrian government an offshoot of al Qaeda was created called ISIS and moved into Syria to fight against Assad. To which we now know that ISIS was created as a proxy army to do the bidding for where the west was unable to go in overtly.

US General Wesley Clark exposed the plan to attack 7 countries in 5 years in an effort to steal oil and resources, yet somehow this is not referenced in the mainstream media.

Today we are seeing the effects of this covert war spill into other areas with the current refugee crisis.

The mainstream media is failing to inform people of how these refugees where created (by foreign intervention mainly the US bombing their country and its infrastructure), and is even trying to pin the blame on Russia for the refugee crisis and claiming Assad is helping ISIS, when the exact opposite is true.

Read This Before The Mainstream Media Uses A Drowned Refugee Boy To Start Another War

Warmongers in government and the media are perversely but predictably trying to conscript Aylan’s corpse into their march to escalation. They are contending that Aylan died because the West has not intervened against Syria’s dictator Bashar al-Assad, and that it must do so now to spare other children the same fate.

Um, no, Aylan’s family were Kurdish refugees from Kobani who had to flee that city when it was besieged, not by Assad, but by Assad’s enemy: ISIS.

A baby boy turned to flotsam. Washed up on the shore, face down in the mud. His family, refugees from Syria’s civil war, had tried to reach Greece, but their over-crowded raft overturned in the Mediterranean Sea and he drowned along with his brother and mother. The viral image of 3-year-old Aylan Kurdi’s lifeless little body on a Turkish beach has shaken the conscience of the West and wrenched America’s attention to the refugee crisis now rocking Europe.

Newsflash to the oblivious citizenry of the power-projecting “free world”: this is what war looks like. This times ten million. That which is mere “foreign policy” to you and your government is desperation and death to those on the receiving end of it.

Children just as innocent and precious as Aylan are being driven into the sea in Libya, incinerated by drone in Pakistan, or starved to death in Yemen all the time, and it is all on your dime. And every single instance creates a sight just as aching.

Pacifying Israel, Pentagon says will utilize military option against Iran if needed

Pacifying Israel, Pentagon says will utilize military option against Iran if needed

Defense Secretary Ashton Carter says the US might utilize the “military option” against Iran in a bid to pacify Israel after Tehran, Washington and five other world powers concluded nuclear talks in Vienna.

“We remain prepared and postured to bolster the security of our friends and allies in the region, including Israel; to defend against aggression; ensure freedom of navigation in the [Persian] Gulf; and check Iranian malign influence,” Carter said in a statement on Tuesday.

“We will utilize the military option if necessary,” the Pentagon chief added.

He is scheduled to travel to Israel next week to meet with his counterparts.

President Barack Obama noted that “Carter’s visit next week to Israel is a reflection of the unprecedented level of security cooperation between the United States and Israel, and that the visit offers a further opportunity to continue our close consultation on security issues with Israeli counterparts,” the White House said in a statement on Tuesday.

Iran and the P5+1 group of countries — the US, Britain, France, China, Russia plus Germany — reached a conclusion on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in Vienna on Tuesday.

According to the text of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Iran will be recognized by the United Nations as a nuclear power and will continue its uranium enrichment program.
