Evidence Suggests SYRIA GAS ATTACK Is False Flag

YouTube has a video they would like to suppress, but it still seems to be there – Evidence Suggests SYRIA GAS ATTACK Is False Flag

This seems to have some conflict somewhat with my prior post After U.S. Strikes Syria, Russian PM Says It’s ‘On The Verge Of A Military Clash’

On Wednesday, the Guardian reported, the Russian Defense Ministry claimed that the poison attack was the result of a Syrian airstrike hitting a “terrorist warehouse” full of “toxic substances.”

In all the confusion, it is going to take a while to sort this out, and we may never know what account of this incident is true, if any one of them is.

Since the corporate media is saturating us with the other side, I feel that someone has to counter it with other possible explanations.


Sanders: Syria strikes could lead to Middle East quagmire

The Hill has an article Sanders: Syria strikes could lead to Middle East quagmire.

“I’m deeply concerned that these strikes could lead to the United States once again being dragged back into the quagmire of long-term military engagement in the Middle East,” Sanders said in a statement.

I was thinking that this may be the most Sanders felt he could say in this climate of hysteria, but then I read on.

Sanders said Friday that Assad is a “war criminal” and the United States should work with the international community to help stop the years-long Syrian civil war.

“The US must work with all parties to reinforce longstanding international norms against the use of chemical weapons, to hold Russia and Syria to the 2013 deal to destroy these weapons and to see that violators are made accountable,” he said.

For me, this is too close an admission that Sanders is just as subject to being gulled by our oligarchs as most of the public seems to be. I think I have realized this for a while about Sanders. He doesn’t make as strong a connection about what the oligarchs are doing to the rest of us in this country and the policies that the oligarchs are foisting all over the world. In Syria, it may be a case of US oil interests fighting with Russian oil interests. The rest of us don’t come out as winners no matter which side carries the day.

Sanders certainly fails to make the connection in his public comments. I wonder if even in his mind does he fail to make the connection? I would find it hard to believe based on his earlier history as Burlington Mayor that he fails to understand.


After U.S. Strikes Syria, Russian PM Says It’s ‘On The Verge Of A Military Clash’

Talking Point Memo has the article After U.S. Strikes Syria, Russian PM Says It’s ‘On The Verge Of A Military Clash’. The point in this article that caught my eye was.

On Wednesday, the Guardian reported, the Russian Defense Ministry claimed that the poison attack was the result of a Syrian airstrike hitting a “terrorist warehouse” full of “toxic substances.”

I had just heard this from someone at a lunch I just attended. If this were true, then it might not have been an al Qaeda false flag attack that triggered our retaliation against the wrong target. There are certainly going to be more twists in this story than I could ever imagine. One thing may be certain, we don’t have enough factual information to justify firing off dozens of missiles.


US strikes Syrian airfield in first direct military action against Assad

The Guardian has a series of articles US strikes Syrian airfield in first direct military action against Assad.

The European commission head, Jean Claude Juncker, responded that “he understands efforts to deter future attacks” and that the EU stood ready to play its role in finding a political solution to the crisis.

If the rebels led the gas attack to get the USA to retaliate against the Syrian government, then our retaliation will only encourage more gas attacks by the rebels.

Will the USA take responsibility for encouraging more such gas attacks in the more likely reality that the latest gas attack was by the rebels who wanted to encourage the USA to launch attacks against rebels’ enemy, the Syrian government? Will we gladly accept strikes against our Navy in retaliation for our encouraging these gas attacks war crimes?

I know there is an urge to avoid analysis paralysis in our military response, but to lash out at the victims instead of the perpetrators is a very counterproductive response if the intent is really to protect the lives of the citizens of Syria.

This is why I have assigned this article to the category of Greenberg’s Law of Counterproductive Behavior.

If you see a behavior that seems to you to be counterproductive, perhaps you have misunderstood what that behavior is meant to produce.

What this behavior is meant to produce is the overthrow of Assad and the building of the pipeline through Syria that the Saudi’s so desperately want. The Saudi Arabian government wants a pipeline through Syria to ship their oil directly to the European market. Exxon wants to profit by the opportunity to manage a new pipeline as part of their agreement with Saudi Arabia to manage the oil sales of Saudi Arabian oil. These two want their choice of pipeline in order to cut Russia out of the European market. Russia and Assad of Syria want to build a Syrian pipeline to help ship Russian oil to market.

The lives of people in Syria play no role in the what Exxon and Saudi Arabia want. The Saudis are the biggest backer of terrorism in the world, if you want to know how much they care. One might even say that the USA is complicit in war crimes. What about our corporate media that is paid to cover this all up? Will the citizens of the USA be forgiven beacuse they have plausible deniability, “How were we to know?”
