I see a great many talking heads. I see just about every media channel and newspaper. I hear
politicians and government spokesmen.
They are all saying the same thing. Assad did it. Assad launched the gas attack. It is his fault.
He and his regime must be bombed. Syrian men women and children must be killed to punish
I hear about plans for cruise missile strikes. I hear talking heads and so called experts talk of
precision weapon strikes. The UKs more jingoistic newspapers are publishing maps and possible
target lists. There is no such thing as a precise weapon. A cruise missile has no way of knowing
if its target building is full of women and children. Try asking the relatives of the hundreds of
bystanders injured or killed by US drone strikes how precise they are.
But no one is asking questions. No more than a handful of people seem to be asking where is the
proof, asking why exactly Assad would use gas when he is winning when he did not use gas when he
Not one shred of undisputed proof has been offered. The US and UK governments say evidence
will be released in the days ahead. Why such a delay, is it taking longer than expected to edit the
First is an article from the Telegraph about discussions between a representative of Saudi Arabia and Putin.
Second is a YouTube clip clearly showing improvised spigot type mortar rounds modified from civilian gas
cylinders of the type that you may have with your caravan or BBQ.
Article from the telegraph.
If this is accurate then it looks like this whole mess was planned at least several weeks ago.
The bribes and threats against Russia to back off and not support Syria two weeks before
the west suddenly comes up with a reason to start bombing Syria stinks of pre planning.
The off the cuff comment about Islamic Terrorism within Russia being under the control of
Saudi Arabia should be taken a lot further as this is a huge admittance of guilt.
If they are behind the Sunni Islamic terrorism in one country they are likely to be pulling the
strings behind the same attacks in many other countries and that could include 7/7 and 9/11.
If the west wants to bomb a Middle Eastern nation in the interests of self defense Syria is not the
one they should be looking at.
Rebel Improvised Gas delivery syste,.
A constant Goverment theme here is that it must be the Syrian Goverment becasue the rebels don't
have the ability to do this.
When accused of launching gas attacks the last time:
Rebel Free Syrian Army spokesman Louay Almokdad denied that rebels had use chemical weapons.
"In any case, we don't have the mechanism to launch these kinds of weapons, which would need
missiles that can carry chemical warheads, and we in the FSA do not possess these kind of capabilities,"
Mr. Almokdad told CNN.
Becasue that looks to me like a fairly effective weapon for delivering gas type atacks. By the Rebels.
Where Mr Cameron is the proof you claim to have regarding the Syrian Governments guilt in this
Where Mr. Prime Minister is the evidence you are using to justify launching an attack on yet another
Middle Eastern Nation?
Where is any effort to ask why would Assad use gas now when he is winning.
Is the NSA/GCHQ taking too long to fake evidence of Assad’s guilt, why has such evidence not been
released by now?
This is the 21st century. The online community has access to a vast amount of data and can find the
truth no matter how hard it is to find. We have long since passed the point where we are prepared to
trust your word on anything.
If you have proof then release it right now, let us test its accuracy.
That is if you have any proof it was Assad.
Or just go ahead and start another war, start bombing another Arab country. After all Blair can claim
Credit for Iraq AND Afghanistan. What can you claim so far, poor little Libya. Hardly worth the wall space
for that certificate of warmongering.
What is the long term plan behind this drive to attack Syria. I don't know.
I see threads and events and themes across the Middle East but I cannot see the whole pattern. I see
chaos and anarchy, stable non religious tyrannies overthrown and replaced with warring theocracies.
Syria is the last of the non religious Middle Eastern Governments. The others have all been toppled
though Egypt is trying to buck the trend as it has thrown out its US/UK imposed Religious government.
The global economy is fragile. Loss of 30% of the world’s oil will crash it very quickly as oil prices spike.
Some will make billions in profit. Millions will suffer. Is that the aim?
The overthrow of Syria and its Iran supported regime will leave the Lebanon exposed, Sunni forces
can them crush the Shia in that country and surround Israel with a single unified Sunni enemy. Is that
The house of Saud and its religious branch Wahabism directly or indirectly control most of the Sunni in
the Middle East. Is putting the house of Saud in command of the entire Middle East the aim?
Russia supports Syria, Putin has already been threatened with Saudi controlled Terrorist attacks against
the 2014 Olympic games. If Syria is attacked and Russia backs down Putin looks weak. Is that the aim?
I see a long term plan.
I don’t see what that plan is and I suspect by the time it becomes clear it will be far too late to do anything
But I suspect I really will not like the end result of all this warfare, chaos and state sanctioned murder by
my own government.
