Propaganda Overdrive Suggests Syria War Coming Soon

With recent reports of a chemical weapons attack having taken place inside Syria, and with Western governments such as the United States, Britain, and France foaming at the mouth to take some type of decisive action against the embattled nation, it is important to investigate the claims being made, the individuals and organizations making such claims, and the relevant information surrounding the attacks which might contradict the narrative being force-fed to the Western public by mainstream corporate media outlets.

For instance, while the typical narrative coming from the majority of mainstream media outlets such as NPR,[1] the Wall Street Journal,[2] CNN,[3]and the New York Daily News clearly implies that Bashar al-Assad was most likely the guilty party behind the attacks, the reasons to not only question the claims in this regard but to actually believe the opposite are legion.

Indeed, in predictable fashion, the United States government is now claiming[4] that is has “strong indications” that chemical weapons have been used and that the culprit was “clearly [by] the government.” Such propaganda, of course, hearkens back to the days of “Incubator Babies” and “Weapons of Mass Destruction” in Iraq.

France, however, is doing whatever it can to take the lead in imperialism and warmongering with Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius stating[5] that “a reaction with force” might be needed if it is determined that it was the Syrian government who used the chemical weapons.

As I wrote in my article, “New Chemical Weapons Attack In Syria Another False Flag?”[6] it has been the case with every other propaganda push against Assad regarding chemical weapons, that there is absolutely no evidence to implicate the Syrian government in the launching and use of chemical agents against the Syrian people or even the death squads themselves. In fact, the accounts being published throughout the mainstream media are very suspect in their own right.


First, although there is some video evidence of chemical weapons usage, the estimates of the extent of the atrocity, as well as the blame for the attacks, are coming entirely from the death squads themselves. Both in the title to the Reuters article mentioned above and in nearly all of the mainstream media reports, statistics and information is prefaced by the phrase “activists say.”

“Activists say,” of course, can be translated merely to mean “death squads” say, as the activists being referred to are indeed nothing more than terrorist killers - politically, ideologically, and physically - invested in the outcome and presentation of the Syrian crisis. In short, these individuals have a vested interest in the blame for these attacks being placed on Assad, popular opinion being turned against the Syrian government, and some type of condemnation or military action being taken against the Syrian army.

Second, the location of the attack is heavily suspect. The Ghouta region, where the attacks allegedly took place, is an area that had been overrun with death squad organizations such as Jabhat al-Nusra and at one point. However, it is also interesting to note that the attacks come at a time after the area had been liberated by Syrian government forces as far back as May, 2013[7] and is now largely free of death squad activity. This suggests that the death squads themselves may have detonated chemical weapons as a move of desperation and coordination with NATO/Anglo-American interests seeking to justify military action against Syria.

Third, and even more interesting, is the fact that the chemical weapons attacks come just days after a team of U.N. chemical experts entered Damascus and checked into a hotel a few miles from the targeted area. With this in mind, one must ask “why would Assad order the use of chemical weapons in this area at such an inopportune time?” Given the track record of Assad’s cleverness, this seems to be an incredibly foolish move, even as the Syrian army has gained the clear upper hand against the death squads. Why detonate chemical weapons in front of UN chemical experts? Why wait until after they arrive to do so? Why detonate chemical weapons so close to them?

These questionable details have caused even mainstream “experts” to hesitate[8] when commenting on the nature of the alleged chemical attacks. For instance, Charles Lister, an analyst at IHS Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Center, stated,
Logically, it would make little sense for the Syrian government to employ chemical agents at such a time, particularly given the relatively close proximity of the targeted towns (to the U.N. team). 
Nonetheless, the Ghouta region (where the attacks were reported) is well known for its opposition leanings. Jabhat al-Nusra has had a long-time presence there and the region has borne the brunt of sustained military pressure for months now.
BBC security correspondent Frank Garnder also stated something similar, when he said, “Firstly, the timing is odd, bordering on suspicious. Why would the Assad government, which has recently been retaking ground from the rebels, carry out a chemical attack while UN weapons inspectors are in the country?”

Likewise, Swedish diplomat and former UN weapons inspector Rolf Ekeus stated to Reuters that, “It would be very peculiar if it was the government to do this at the exact moment the international inspectors come into the country….at the least, it wouldn’t be very clever.”

Another Swede, chemical weapons expert Ake Sellstrom, who is currently leading the UN inspection team in Syria told SVT[9] that the large number of victims being reported sounded “suspicious.”[4]

In addition, soon after the attacks, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Alexansdr Lukashevich stated that the attacks may have been a “provocation planned in advance” promoted for political purposes by “biased regional media.”

Lukashevich also said, “It draws attention to the fact that biased regional media have immediately, as if on command, begun an aggressive information attack, laying all the responsibility on the government.”

When Lukashevich refers to “biased regional media” he most likely means news agencies such as Al-Arabiya who, according to William Engdahl,[10] was the agency who broke the initial story regarding claims of 500 deaths from chemical attacks, reports which were taken almost entirely from “activists” aka death squads. After the initial reports were made by Al-Arabiya the massive wave of Western media picked up the story and ran with it, inflating the numbers of victims almost every hour, finally reaching claims of 1,300 deaths.

As Engdahl writes,
Al Arabiya,[11] the origin of the story, is not a neutral in the Syrian conflict. It was set up in 2002 by the Saudi Royal Family in Dubai. It is majority-owned by the Saudi broadcaster, Middle East Broadcasting Center (MBC). Saudi Arabia is a major financial backer of the attempt to topple Syria’s government. That is a matter of record. So on first glance Saudi-owned media reporting such an inflammatory anti-Assad allegation might be taken with a dose of salt.
In addition, the Russian spokesman also added that “A homemade rocket with a poisonous substance that has not been identified yet – one similar to the rocket used by terrorists on March 19 in Khan al-Assal - was fired early on August 21 [at Damascus suburbs] from a position occupied by the insurgents.”

As RT reported in their article “Russia suggests Syria ‘chemical attack’ was ‘planned provocation’ by rebels,”
Lukashevich pointed out that similar reports about Syrian authorities allegedly using chemical weapons have popped up before. However, the information has never been confirmed. 
In Moscow’s view, the latest possible “provocation” might be the opposition’s attempt to get support from the UN Security Council and undermine the Geneva peace talks on Syria. 
Russia believes the incident should be thoroughly investigated by professionals. It urged everyone who has influence on armed extremists to do everything possible to finally put an end to such provocations involving chemical poisonous substances.[12]
Lukashevich and the Russian government have ample reason[13] to suspect that the recent chemical weapons attack in Syria was the handiwork of the death squads instead of the Syrian government.

Since the ridiculous “red line” talk has been repeated in government halls and press conferences since late 2012 by both President Barack Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as well as French President Francois Hollande, the idea that the Syrian government would be the party to actually use chemical weapons was patently absurd from the beginning.

As far back as June 2012, the pieces were clearly seen being moved into place in order to create the environment and subsequent chain of events for a successful false flag attack used to justify an invasion of or, at the very least, some limited military action against Syria. However, the more hidden aspects being used to create infrastructure for such an event could be seen going back even further.

For instance, in November, 2011, it was reported in The Telegraph[14] that the “transitional” government of terrorists, Muslim Brotherhood, and NATO puppets in Libya[15] were offering to send money, personnel[16] (aka terrorists[17] and mercenaries), and weapons to the death squads operating in Syria. It was largely understood, at least after the initial announcement of the weapons deal, that the weapons in question included chemical weapons.

Later, in June of 2012, it was reported by Russia Today[18] that these weapons had indeed found themselves into the hands of the death squads by virtue of their Libyan counterparts now acting as head of the failed Libyan State. RT stated that, “They allegedly plan to use it against civilians and pin the atrocity on the Bashar al-Assad regime.”

Thus, it should be noted that the London Guardian[19] reported that the Libya possessed “25 metric tonnes of bulk mustard agent and 1,400 metric tonnes of precursor chemical used to make chemical weapons."

It was also reported in August of 2012[20] that the death squads had managed to capture a missile site belonging to the Syrian army which contained chemical weapons. The death squads erroneously claimed that the reason for attacking the site was to prevent the Assad government from using the weapons against members of the “opposition.” Regardless, one does not have to speculate very much as to the possibilities available here - in June, the death squads gain access to chemical weapons. In August, they gain access to a delivery mechanism in the form of missiles.

It is just such a coincidence that should cause one to examine another event which occurred shortly before the assault on the missile site. In July 2012, Tony Cartalucci of LandDestroyerReport,[21] described “reports of so-called 'Free Syrian Army' militants seen trying on gas masks, along with reports of Libyan chemical weapon caches & equipment being discovered in Damascus.”

Together with the acquisition of the missile delivery capability by virtue of the conquering of the Syrian missile site and the possession of the chemical weapons themselves via Libya, the acquisition of gas masks points to the preparation for the launch of an actual chemical attack, or at least the possibility of it, on the part of the death squads.

As one of the death squad members stated to Reuters in April, 2012,[22] “The rebels are getting better at bomb-making; as you know, desperation is the mother of invention." Reuters also commented that the death squads were now able to develop “more sophisticated bombs” due to “rare outside donations” although Reuters did not attempt to name those mysterious sources.

Moving forward to August 2012, a false flag plot was discovered which had been hatched between NATO and Saudi Arabia that would have staged a chemical weapons deployment in Syria either by mercenary firms or by the NATO-backed death squads, an attack that would subsequently have been blamed on the Assad government, thus serving as a pretext for NATO intervention and the creation of a “buffer zone” in the country.

According to Paul Joseph Watson,[23] the source reporting the impending attack stated to Syrian news channel Addounia that a Saudi Arabian firm “had fitted 1400 ambulance vehicles with anti-gas & anti-chemical filtering systems at a cost of $97,000 dollars each, in preparation for a chemical weapons attack carried out by FSA rebels using mortar rounds. A further 400 vehicles have been prepared as troop carriers.”

Interestingly enough, the attack was set to make use of white phosphorous, sarin and mustard gas. It then stands as yet another questionable “coincidence” that, among the weapons possessed by the Libyan regime and now in the hands of the death squads, was large quantities of bulk mustard agent. Indeed, recent claims regarding the August 21, 2013 chemical weapons attack have made use of sarin gas would do nothing but add credence to the suspicion that it was the death squads themselves who committed the chemical weapons attack, not the Assad government.

Nevertheless, the potential false flag attack reported by Addounia[24] was set to be launched on densely populated areas, most likely Daraa, a city on the Syria/Jordan border, after which the newly fitted ambulances would pour into Syria under the guise of humanitarian aid. Although painted with the labels, “Syrian People’s Relief,” the ambulances would actually be nothing more than armored personnel carriers designed to capitalize on a manufactured disaster for the purpose of deploying such personnel in order to create the desired buffer zone.

Furthermore, the same company that manufactured and fitted the ambulances to be used in the attack is one that is based in Riyadh and was negotiating a contract with the Yemeni government for the manufacture of military vehicles for the Yemeni army.

A source also reported that a meeting had taken place between the head of Al Arabiya, the Saudi news channel, and a U.S. diplomat at the U.S. Embassy in the United Arab Emirates. As Paul Joseph Watson writes, “The purpose of the meeting was to agree[25] upon a conditioning program to prepare the public for the likelihood that Bashar Al-Assad’s forces would use chemical weapons. Shortly after the meeting, Al Arabiya began running news segments depicting the inevitability of a chemical weapons attack carried out by Assad’s forces.”

Of course, it was around this same time period that discussions of a “red line” by the French and American Presidents as well as the U.S. State Department and Israeli representatives began their repetition in the mainstream media circles and hence the American public at large.

For instance, in August 2012, President Barack Obama[26] warned that not only the use but merely the transportation of chemical weapons would constitute a “red line” that would result in military intervention. French President Hollande[27] also stated at the time that the use of chemical weapons “Would be a legitimate reason for direct intervention.”

Likewise, Watson writes, Israel’s Vice Premier Silvan Shalom told media outlets “that if Syrian rebels obtained chemical weapons from stockpiles belonging to the Assad regime, such a development would force Israel to resort to 'preventive operations,' in other words – a military strike on Syria.”

The creation of a “buffer zone” inside Syria is also interesting in its own right, not just because of the necessary loss of legitimate territory close to Syria’s borders but also because of its inherent nature of destabilization and weakening of the ruling regime in Damascus. Thus, it is interesting to note that, while the false flag chemical attack and the subsequent creation of a buffer zone was designed to use the pretext of humanitarian aid as mentioned above, such a plan follows the roadmap provided by the Brookings Institution in a paper entitled “Saving Syria: Assessing Options for Regime Change,”[28] published in March 2012. The paper essentially argued for the use of a humanitarian issue in order to engage in military intervention on the part of NATO in Syria.

Indeed, the paper states, “An alternative is for diplomatic efforts to focus first on how to end the violence and how to gain humanitarian access, as is being done under Annan’s leadership. This may lead to the creation of safe-havens and humanitarian-corridors, which would have to be backed by limited military power.”

Yet one does not have to go any further afield in order to understand that the plan to stage false flag chemical weapons attack inside Syria in order to see the mass of evidence supporting such a claim.

In December 2012, a video was obtained[32] by the Syria Tribune[33] and subsequently released in their report and posted on YouTube[34] which allegedly shows the NATO-backed death squads testing chemical weapons on “lab” rabbits.

As the Syria Tribune describes the video,
The video (see here[35]) starts with several scenes showing chemical containers with Tekkim labels (Tekkim is a Turkish chemicals company[36]) and some lab equipment,[37] while playing Jihadists chants in the background. A glass box then appears with two rabbits inside, with a poster on the wall behind it reading The Almighty Wind Brigade (Kateebat A Reeh Al Sarsar). A person wearing a lab mask then mixes chemicals in a beaker in the glass box, and we see some gas emitting from the beaker. About a minute later, the rabbits start to have random convulsions and then die. The person says: You saw what happened? This will be your fate, you infidel Alawites, I swear by ALLAH to make you die like these rabbits, one minute only after you inhale the gas.
The Syria Tribune also comments that “Judging from the rabbits’ reaction, the gas must be a nerve agent. The number of containers, if not a bluff, indicates ability to produce a considerable amount of this gas. Deployment could be by means of a smoke generator placed in the target area, an explosion, possibly a suicide one, of a "chemmed" car, or simply by using a humidifier."

In March, 2013, yet another YouTube[38] video was released which contained a clip of a second “test” of chemical weapons on captive rabbits by the death squads.

This is quite an ironic presentation, since the Assad government has repeatedly vowed never to use chemical weapons inside Syria, while the death squads have repeatedly threatened to do just that. Indeed, in direct contrast to the tone and statements of the death squads, the Syrian Foreign Ministry spokesman Jihad Makdissi issued a statement[39] several months ago saying, “No chemical or biological weapons will ever be used, and I repeat, will never be used, during the crisis in Syria no matter what the developments inside Syria.” Yet the drums of war and military intervention from the United States, NATO, and Israel continue to relentlessly beat.

Regardless, the video mentioned above also contains an alleged audio recording of a phone conversation[40] between two Free Syrian Army fighters discussing the “details of a plan to carry out a chemical weapons attack capable of impacting an area the size of one kilometer.”

As Paul Joseph Watson writes,
The recording of the phone conversation purports to be between two FSA militants, one inside Syria and one outside of the country. Abu Hassan, the militant inside Syria, asks the person on the other end of the line to transmit a message to Sheikh Suleiman, a rebel-seized army base in Aleppo, asking for “two chemical bombs ….phosphoric” in order to “finish this whole thing.” 
“I want them to be effective,” states Hassan, adding, “The radius of the strike, or reach of the gases, has to be 1km.”
The video also contains a clip of the death squads openly announcing their plans to engage in chemical weapons attacks, all the while surrounded by bottles of nitric acid and other substances.

Again, back in December of 2012, after the death squads managed to capture a chlorine factory inside Syria, the Syrian government actually issued a warning that the death squads might attempt to use chemical weapons of this nature in their battle to overthrow and oppress the government and people of Syria respectively. The Syrian Foreign Ministry stated, “Terrorist groups may resort to using chemical weapons against the Syrian people ... after having gained control of a toxic chlorine factory.”

Thus, with the most recent chemical weapon attack which has caused both a frothing and bumbling public relations response from the Anglo-Americans, it is interesting to note that chlorine has been fingered as being one of the major ingredients.

As Alex Thomson of The Telegraph reported,[41]
The Syrian military is said to believe that a home-made locally-manufactured rocket was fired, containing a form of chlorine known as CL17, easily available as a swimming pool cleaner. They claim that the warhead contained a quantity of the gas, dissolved in saline solution. 
[...] 
CL17 is normal chlorine for swimming pools or industrial purposes. It is rated as Level 2 under the chemical weapons convention, which means it is dual purpose - it can be used as a weapon as well as for industrial or domestic purposes. Level 1 agents are chemicals whose sole use is as weapons, such as the nerve agents sarin or tabun. 
There has been extensive experimentation by insurgents in Iraq in the use of chlorine, which is harmful when mixed with water to form hydrochloric acid. It vapourises quickly, meaning that in a big explosion it will evaporate; in a small blast - for instance, one delivered by a home-made rocket - it will turn into airborne droplets before dispersing quickly. 
So it is likely only to produce limited casualties. In this case there were only 26 fatalities, far fewer than would be expected from a full chemical weapon attack. In short, it is easily improvised into a chemical device but not one that would be used by an army seeking mass-casualty effects. [emphasis added]
Reports by the Syrian government coincide with the accounts given by the victims of the chemical weapons attack which one can view in the video clip contained in the YouTube video mentioned above. (See here) It is also important to note that many of the victims allegedly name the Free Syrian Army and the “rebels” as the perpetrators as they are being interviewed while waiting for medical treatment.

“The Free Syrian Army hit us with a rocket,” one woman said. "We smelled an odor and everyone fell to the ground. People died where they fell . . . the kids . . . "

A young girl was also interviewed, who said, “My lungs closed and I couldn’t breathe or speak. God curse them. Everyone died on the ground. My mom and dad died. I don’t know where is my brother. God curse them. May they [FSA] all die. This is the freedom they bring us. They [FSA] want to kill everyone. I hope there remains not a single one of them [FSA] alive.”

Let us not forget that the death squads have been responsible for unspeakable atrocities[42] against innocent people ever since the destabilization effort began. Last October, the death squads, in typical terrorist fashion, conducted at least four suicide bombings in Aleppo that killed around 40 innocent civilians.

Receiving more attention in the media, however, at least until the death squads were found to be responsible, was the infamous Houla Massacre of 2011 where approximately 90 people were killed.

Numerous other atrocities have also been documented with videos showing the death squads machine gunning captives,[43] beheading prisoners[44](see here and here[45]), and forcing young children to behead them.[46] I, myself, have written an article dealing with reports regarding the death squad’s hanging of a young child[47] after murdering his family in front of him. One can also view the videos of the death squad members beating and humiliating[48] the famous elderly “Yellow Man” in Aleppo.

Indeed, the videos of the torture of prisoners in the hands of the death squads are legion. One need only type the relevant keywords into a YouTube search engine to be greeted with generous results.

Such open acts of terrorism, lack of regard for human life, and outright savagery on the part of the death squads have thus made even coordinated Western media propaganda campaigns rest on shakier ground. Unfortunately, we must never overestimate the intellectual prowess of the population of the television and entertainment-saturated Western populations. After all, it has failed on countless occasions in the past.

We cannot allow false claims of atrocities or phantom threats of frightening weapons to be used to justify American military intervention in yet another Middle Eastern country. Indeed, our experiences with “incubator babies” and weapons of mass destruction should serve as a reminder when faced with nerve gas victims and chemical weapons.

"Amid a growing belief that chemical weapons were used"? A "growing belief" among who? Perhaps among the deranged New York City zio-libtards who worship The Times as Holy Writ, but certainly not among any rational man capable of discernment. Clearly, the Syrian chemical attack was staged by the terrorist mercenary scum that The Times romantically refers to as "rebels". Glory to to Putin's Russia for coming right out and saying this!

If indeed there is a "growing belief" that Assad of Syria ordered a chemical weapon strike, it is only because The Times is spreading the lie itself! How dare The Times point its bloody Zionist finger at Assad, when their Golden Boy Obongo, and their beloved shitty little "State of Israel", continue to murder women and children with predator drone strikes in Yemen and Pakistan, and periodic carpet bombing of Gaza! Why are Assad's imaginary "chemicals" intolerable, yet death by Obongo's drones, or Israel's bombs, is OK?


Of course, Assad is innocent. But The Times will continue to peddle the "chemical weapons" lie, just like their wretched little Zionist house bitch Judith Miller famously peddled the "Weapons of Mass Destruction" lie that led to the immoral war to destroy Iraq. Israel and its Israel Firster brigades in America want this war against Syria, and then Iran. A massive regional war would allow Israel to fulfill its ultimate objective of a "Greater Israel", encompassing parts of Syria, Egypt, and Iraq. The Jewish owned Times (Sulzberger-Ochs Family since 1896) knows this. That is why they continue to publish these murderous mendacities. And that is why The Anti-New York Times will continue to rebut them!

Great reporting, Brandon! Relating to the comment above, it now appears that the NY Times is partnering with the Guardian on the Snowden story. It is a bit of a stretch to call Times reporter Judith Miller a Zionist....I think a journalistic call girl would fit her a bit better. And now that the Times has itself positioned to report on the Snowden disclosures, I think we can kiss those revelations goodbye, as well.

Anon at 11:15 has it exactly right.
Most of the people we have in leadership roles are not in their right mind, but the American people are still tricked by their titles and positions thinking, "they can't be psychotic or evil, they're leaders. The only poetic justice I can see from this is the insane pied pipers lead the willingly ignorant off a cliff somewhere and the rest of us sane people will be rid of both.

The fact they would attempt this childish stunt just goes to show what immature insane idiots we have in power. They've been able to get away with these crazy stunts at home they think the rest of the world is as gullable as the americans they abuse.

The question is how long must we suffer the fools?

How long are the majority of willingly stupid people here in the US going to put up with this nonsense.

The same game has been played in Irag, Afganistan, Egypt, Libya. and the list goes on.

It simply amazes me that this can be done in the name of the american people over and over again and the poeple don't get it.

What on earth is wrong with them.

I'll tell you one thing for sure.
If these insane people are allowed to continue with this death wish they will take us all down and it will be OUR fault for standing there, letting it happen, when we know good and well what will happen.

At what point do responsible citizens intervene just to save themselves and their country.

Is that it? We don't realy have responsible citizens? Just a bunch of immature gadget addict watchers. Maybe this new generation of people in america was just meant to record everything but not DO anything about it.

An audience, watching the insane destroy everything.

Somebody stop this nation, I want to get off.

Essentially, the Middle East is being torched. People seem to think that Israel will gain from all of this. Israel too will be destroyed. Mark my words. The entire region is targeted.

Funny how fast things change, in August it seemed like we were on the verge of war because of the crossing of the red line. Four months later, you'd be hard pressed to find even a brief mention of Syria
