How the U.S. Political Left is Failing Over Syria

02-09-2013 14:10

It’s now painfully clear that Obama’s war on Syria is a replay of Bush’s march to war in Iraq, both built on lies. Zero evidence has been put forth that proves the Syrian government used chemical weapons. On the contrary, evidence has been recorded that suggests the U.S.-backed Syrian rebels are responsible for the attack.

Wrexham protests re. threatened military action in Syria

30-08-2013 18:54

Around a dozen people showed up in Queens Square, Wrexham this morning at short notice in visible opposition to the threat of western military action in Syria. The government may have lost the Commons vote last night but there's every chance it won't be able to resist getting involved in some way if the US goes ahead with an attack.

Among those protesting today were two enthusiastic children who made sure the placards were displayed to their best advantage throughout the morning and a Syrian friend who has alreadly lost five cousins and numerous acquaintances in the conflict.

Inculcating stupidity: Syria and Edward Snowden

30-08-2013 18:34

Only the most foolish, thoughtless and inexperienced could possibly believe the latest propaganda warfare lie about chemical weapons in Syria, hardly different from the blatant lies justifying the war against Iraq. The main reason to consult Western news media now is to find out what the enemies of humanity have to say about their latest crimes. For readers in English, the most prestigious, quasi-plausible media tend to be NATO psychological warfare outlets like the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, Fox News, the Wall Street Journal, the BBC, Independent Television News, the Daily Telegraph, the Guardian, the Independent, the Irish Times and the main corporate owned news agencies.

For people outside North America and Europe, the internal spat within the West's ruling élites offers little of interest. Very clearly, almost the entire Western corporate and alternative media network operates on the basis of psychological warfare criteria ultimately at the service of the imperialist tendencies of their countries' societies and the aggressive élites that control them. Like that of their corporate counterparts, the role of the West's supposedly alternative or progressive media, and the similarly funded non-governmental sector, is to provide a moral alibi for their countries' imperialist crimes against humanity.

The Subterfuge of Syrian Chemical Weapons

Michael Gove deserves to be tried for aiding and abetting Blair's war crimes

27-08-2013 17:10

Today’s DAILY MAIL front-page about MPs demanding a debate on Cameron’s plot on attacking Syria is a vacuous one. MPs will NOT halt Cameron. they didn’t halt Blair in 2003! The "broadsheet" the London daily the INDEPENDENT is blocking comments that expose Michael Gove's role as Tony Bliar's Goebbels via the BBC during the years of the Blair GW Bush attack on Iraq and Afghanistan. This behaviour is forcing observers to ask: it isn’t, is it? the ‘it’ and the innuendo-ed state being ‘independent’!
Whatever might have caused the ‘Indy’ to sink to the gutters as another courier of unconstitutionality, rampaging lies for warocracy!

25-08-2013 10:04

Syrian army finds chemicals in militants’ tunnels ....... Syrian army soldiers have found chemical agents in tunnels dug by the foreign-backed militants in a northeastern suburb of the capital, Damascus, Syrian TV says. The discovery came after the government forces surrounded a sector of militant-held district of Jobar on Saturday. "Army heroes are entering the tunnels of the terrorists and saw chemical agents," Syria television said, adding, "In some cases, soldiers are suffocating while entering Jobar.” ...

Crasser than a Thousand Dead out of the Blue

24-08-2013 18:42

In this time zone, it came calibrated with the new calendar day, where it happened it sought the time with the least attention, and where it was addressed to it narrowly may have been missed by an outmatched day shift. The only phenomenon more surprising than the apparent Syrian self-mutilation in the Damascus massacre is the deafening silence of the democratic politicians. After all those years of stupid provocations and management attempts and harassment of dissidents, these who have nothing more to offer than their immediate public reactions towards anything in the focus of their spying are now struggling for explanations they want to give to the public. Does this reluctance indicate another false flag?
