ONU: AI SAUDITI LA DIFESA DEI DIRITTI DELLE DONNE

L’Arabia Saudita è stata nominata membro della Commissione per i Diritti delle Donne dell’ONU.
L’organismo si chiama “Commission on the Status of Women” (CSW) ed è il principale strumento intergovernativo dedicato alla promozione della parità di genere e all’empowerment femminile.
È stato istituito nel 1946 in seno al Consiglio Economico e Sociale delle Nazioni Unite (ECOSOC) e la sua funzione è di evidenziare lo stato della condizione femminile nel mondo e promuovere gli standard globali a cui le nazioni devono attenersi.

 L’ingresso dell’Arabia Saudita nella Commissione rappresenta uno scandalo che getta l’ennesima luce fosca sull’ONU e e sui diversi organismi che lo compongono.

Hiller Nueller, direttore esecutivo di UNWatch l’organizzazione che monitora l’attività della Nazioni Unite, ha dichiarato che “eleggere l’Arabia Saudita per proteggere i diritti delle donne è come mettere un piromane a capo dei Vigili del Fuoco” ed ha aggiunto che tutto ciò “è assurdo e moralmente riprovevole” perché “la discriminazione saudita contro le donne è grave e sistematica nella legge e nella pratica”.

Una strana procedura

In genere i membri della Commissione vengono concordati tra i 54 paesi membri che compongono l’ECOSOC; ma questa volta si è scelto il voto a scrutinio segreto, prassi non consuetudinaria, su richiesta degli Stati Uniti (come rivela il video della seduta); perché?
I paesi eletti dai 54 delegati dell’ECOSOC sono 13, si aggiungeranno ad altri già presenti (secondo un complesso sistema di rotazione) e rimarranno in carica dal 2018 al 2022; tra questi l’Arabia Saudita è quello che ha ricevuto meno voti: solo 47 mentre tutti gli altri paesi sono stati votati all’unanimità (o al massimo con un voto di meno come Kenya, Turkmenistan e Nicaragua che hanno ricevuti 53 voti).
Questo dimostrerebbe che lo scrutinio segreto è servito agli Usa per far passare una nomina fortemente contrastata in seno alle Nazioni Unite.

Inoltre, secondo Nueller, almeno 5 nazioni europee dell’ECOSOC hanno votato a favore dell’Arabia Saudita, ma non è ovviamente possibile sapere chi; tra queste potrebbero esserci Italia, Germania, Francia o Gran Bretagna.

Oscurantisti ma “amici” dell’Occidente

l’Arabia Saudita è una delle teocrazie più oscurantiste del mondo, regime repressivo primo per violazione dei diritti umani, condanne a morte senza garanzie di diritto, applicazione della tortura, persecuzione delle minoranze religiose.

Secondo i dettami del wahabismo, interpretazione estrema del Corano, le donne non hanno alcun diritto civile e non possono esercitare alcun tipo di attività sociale e pubblica se non alla presenza di un uomo tutore.

Eppure tutto questo all’Arabia Saudita si perdona: ai suoi regnanti, i francesi donano la Légion d’Honneur, gli americani le medaglie della Cia per l’impegno contro il terrorismo ben sapendo che l’Arabia Saudita è il principale sponsor dei gruppi jihadisti sunniti, il fiancheggiatore fuori dai propri confini di Al Qaeda e Isis, e il finanziatore dell’integralismo salafita che inquina l’islam europeo nelle moschee e nelle scuole coraniche dove imam sauditi predicano l’odio e la distruzione dell’Occidente.

Ma l’Arabia Saudita è anche il principale alleato in Medio Oriente di Usa, Gran Bretagna e Francia e uno dei loro principali partner economici oltre che fondamentale acquirente della industria delle armi.

Un anno fa Wikileaks svelò gli accordi segreti con i quali la Gran Bretagna ha barattato il proprio voto in sede Onu per garantire un seggio all’Arabia Saudita nella Commissione Diritti Umani (UNHCR) dove oggi i sauditi siedono.
Questo, nonostante l’Arabia Saudita stia guidando una guerra criminale nello Yemen, denunciata da molte organizzazioni internazionali, con bombardamenti a tappeto sulla popolazione civile e violazione delle più elementari regole del diritto internazionale; sotto la protezione militare e politica di Usa e Gran Bretagna, grandi sponsor dell’intervento bellico.

Insomma i famosi diritti umani non negoziabili con cui le democrazie occidentali i loro media e i loro intellettuali si riempion.o la bocca, per l’Arabia Saudita non valgono.
Perché i diritti umani sono importanti ma i petrodollari, gli accordi commerciali e gli investimenti finanziari, lo sono di più.

L’Onu vuole le donne sottomesse

burqa

Arriva l’ulteriore conferma dell’assurdità del divieto di vietare il burkini: l’Onu si schiera a favore del Consiglio di Stato francese, contrario all’ordinanza di alcuni sindaci che imponeva di non indossare un simbolo di sottomissione della donna sulle proprie spiagge.

E se è contraria l’Onu, possiamo a maggior ragione essere a favore noi, vista la politica fallimentare che l’Organizzazione ha portato avanti in 70 anni di attività.

Un’ennesima ingerenza inutile e dannosa che vede un ente, che ha tra gli scopi principali quello di promuovere il rispetto per i diritti umani, spendersi per la difesa dell’assoggettamento delle donne alle neo tradizioni medievali.

È il nuovo iceberg contro cui le titaniche lotte per l’emancipazione femminile si schiantano frantumandosi sotto l’egida di un insidioso potere occulto mondiale: quello dell’industria della misericordia, in altre parole il “jet set umanitario”, come lo definì il giornalista americano Mark Steyn.

Insieme alle sue 17 agenzie specializzate (tra cui Unicef, Fao, Oms), l’ONU, nata per volere di Franklin e Eleanore Roosevelt con le migliori intenzioni, al pari del progetto della Unione Europea è cresciuta male, un albero distorto dagli interessi inter e intranazionali al servizio di influenti élite socioeconomiche. Ma soprattutto è un carrozzone al traino degli Stati membri i cui contributi servono a finanziare stipendi che corrispondono al doppio di quelli erogati mediamente per analoghe mansioni (oltretutto esentasse per i funzionari), in un sistema di nepotismo e conseguente corruzione che vede coinvolti anche dittatori e politici dispotici in una ragnatela di interessi personali in stridente contrasto con gli scopi dell’organizzazione.

Una fiera dell’arricchimento alle spalle del mondo, il Terzo in primis, con sedi, palazzi, esubero di personale, mezzi di trasporto e privilegi da capogiro, niente di dissimile da certe Ong e Onlus e compagnia bella e benefattrice, ove “l’assenza di profitto” si traduce spesso in benefit personali.

Per carità, tappeti rossi alle missioni caritatevoli e umanitarie, e il sentimento che prevale infine è quello: anche se arriva poco, almeno un poco arriva, sebbene il caso dell’Onu vada oltre ogni immaginazione.

Gli Hutu trucidano i Tutsi e chi s’è visto s’è visto, l’Onu di certo non si è visto. I sudanesi del Darfur e i bosniaci di Srebrenica vengono allegramente sterminati mentre i Caschi blu attendono ordini mai arrivati dal Palazzo di vetro, roba da mandarlo in frantumi.

Le violazioni dei confini nazionali, poi, priorità tra le più significative dell’ente, hanno visto il suo intervento solo in due casi: in Corea nel 1950 e in Kuwait nel 1991. Molto più comodo mandare avanti gli Stati Uniti, gli unici a non tirarsi indietro e che si tirano dietro le critiche del mondo. Senza peraltro considerare le innumerevoli inchieste sulle violenze e gli abusi sessuali perpetrati dalle forze dell’Onu durante le missioni di pace, pentole scoperchiate da alcune Ong e da Amnesty International, che scavano nei misfatti dei militi degli Stati di mezzo mondo, e che a fronte di risultati risibili (se si pensa che la voce maggiore delle spese dell’Onu è quella della sicurezza nel mondo e che fatica a scendere in guerra in difesa dei diritti umani) si accolla pure l’onta più tipica dei misfatti di guerra: crimini in cui le donne e le bambine sono le prime vittime, tanto che in Africa esiste persino il termine “peacekeepers babies”, i figli illegittimi dei soldati in missione di pace.

Altro paradosso: a capo del Consiglio dei diritti dell’uomo (e dovrebbe essere anche delle donne) abbiamo nientemeno che un saudita, Faisal bin Assad Trad, una barzelletta se si considera la libertà di cui godono le donne in Arabia Saudita, e pure gli uomini dato che le torture e le esecuzioni sono in costante aumento, tanto che l’anno scorso è stato indetto un bando di concorso per l’assunzione di nuovi boia, insufficienti a star dietro al ritmo crescente della “giustizia” locale.

L’Onu vanta anche un ente per l’uguaglianza di genere e l’empowerment femminile, attualmente presieduto dalla sudafricana Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, che risulta assopita sulla faccenda della sottomissione femminile a burka, burkini e simili, a meno che non venga ascoltata proprio perché donna.

Le donne sono prima di tutto bambine, e l’Unicef che fa? Finanzia i progetti per la difesa dei diritti del bambino anziché sostenere iniziative che mirano alla sua sopravvivenza, emergenza alquanto prioritaria.

Se l’Onu aveva un’occasione per tacere, era proprio sulla querelle del burkini, punta dell’iceberg di una più vasta questione e specchietto per le allodole di un falso problema: la salvaguardia di un diritto della donna. Il “diritto” presuppone la possibilità di scelta, far passare le imposizioni per “tradizioni” è l’ipocrita ciliegina sulla torta dei diritti umani che si spartiscono i funzionari dell’Onu, gettando le briciole alle “culture” terzomondiste da rispettare. E da spremere.

Saudi Arabia’s election to UN women’s commission draws ire

Filed under: Senza Categoria — mirabilissimo100 @ 4:00 am

Updated 2047 GMT (0447 HKT) April 25, 2017

New York (CNN)The principal UN commission charged with promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women has picked 13 new members by secret vote. One selection is raising eyebrows: Saudi Arabia.

“Electing Saudi Arabia to protect women’s rights is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, a human rights group that acts as a UN watchdog.
The World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap ranks Saudi Arabia 141 out of 144 countries.
All Saudi Arabian women have legal male guardians. Those guardians have the power to make critical decisions on their behalf — including the ability to travel abroad, to marry, to work and to access health care.
Women are unable to drive in Saudi Arabia despite recent efforts to change the ban.
“It is absurd that Saudi Arabia is to sit on the UN Commission on the Status of Women as a state member,” said Rothna Begum, a Middle East women’s rights researcher for Human Rights Watch.
“How can Saudi Arabia seek to promote women’s rights globally, when at home they continue to severely discriminate against women, treating them as permanent legal minors?”
Saudi Arabia has made small advancements in freedom for women.
Licenses for female-only gyms were approved in February but only for the purpose of motivating Saudi women to get fit; but licenses for competitive sports like soccer, volleyball or tennis remain unavailable.
The country sent its first female athletes to the Summer Olympics in 2012.
KSA 2030, the country’s ambitious vision for the future, aims to “increase women’s participation in the workforce” to 30%.
The Saudi Arabian Embassy to the United States referred CNN’s inquiries back to the Saudi Arabia Mission to the United Nations. Multiple requests for comment were left with Saudi Arabia’s Mission to the United Nations. CNN also reached out for comment from officials sources within the KSA but have yet to receive a response.
UN spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said, “This is an election by member states and one in which the secretary-general has no authority or involvement.”
The United Kingdom’s Mission to the United Nations also declined to comment on its vote and the Saudi’s election to the commission.
The United States’ Mission to the United Nations did not respond to repeated inquires but a State Department official told CNN’s Laura Koran, “As is common practice, the United States does not disclose its candidate preference in secret ballot elections either before or afterwards. The United States continues to work with the CSW and other UN organizations (such as UN Women) to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment.”
It’s not the first time a country with a repressive human rights record toward women has been elected to the commission.

Syria: Former Israeli Defense Minister Confirms Israeli Collaboration With ISIS

Filed under: Senza Categoria — mirabilissimo100 @ 3:45 am
By Richard Silverstein

April 23, 2017 “Information Clearing House” – In the midst of complaining about the Islamist threat to Israel and the world, Bibi Netanyahu conveniently forgets that his own country enjoys a tacit alliance with ISIS in Syria.  It is an alliance of convenience to be sure and one that’s not boasted about by either party.  But is not terribly different from one than Israel enjoys with its other Muslim allies like Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States.

Bogie Yaalon served as defence minister in the current government till he had a falling out with Netanyahu.  Now Yaalon plans to form his own party and run against his former boss.  Unfortunately for him, he’s not polling well and doesn’t appear to be much of a political threat.

So Yaalon enjoys the position of having little to lose.  He can speak more candidly than the average politician.  In this context, he spoke at length on security matters at a public event in Afula.  There is always much that I disagree with whenever I read Yaalon’s views.  For example, while warning about the danger of favoring too heavily one side over the other, he essentially justifies Israel’s interventionist approach, which largely has favored Assad’s opponents.  Nor do I like his choice of political allies–from Pam Geller to Meir Kahane’s grandson.

But he did reveal how closely tied Israel is to ISIS in Syria. I’ve documented, along with other journalists, Israeli collaboration with al-Nusra, an affiliate of al-Qaeda.  But no Israeli till now has admitted it has forged an alliance with ISIS as well.  Below Yaalon implicitly confirms this below:

…Within Syria there are many factions: the regime, Iran, the Russians, and even al-Qaeda and ISIS.  In such circumstances, one must develop a responsible, carefully-balanced policy by which you protect your own interests on the one hand, and on the other hand you don’t intervene.  Because if Israel does intervene on behalf of one side, it will serve the interests of the other; which is why we’ve established red lines.  Anyone who violates our sovereignty will immediately feel the full weight of our power.  On most occasions, firing comes from regions under the control of the regime.  But once the firing came from ISIS positions–and it immediately apologized.

The attack he refers to was never reported in Israeli media.  Either the information was placed under gag order or under military censorship.  It was suppressed most certainly because both the firing by an Israeli Islamist ally on Israeli territory and ISIS’ apology would embarrass both Israel and the Islamists.

Keep in mind, this is the same ISIS which beheaded a Jewish-American who’d lived in Israel: Steven Sotloff.  The same ISIS which raped Yazidi women and threw gay men off buildings.  The same ISIS which has rampaged through the Middle East sowing havoc and rivers of blood wherever it goes.  The same ISIS which Netanyahu routinely excoriates as being the root of all evil in the world.

It’s common knowledge that Israeli foreign policy going back to the days of Ben Gurion has been exceedingly opportunistic and amoral.  So I suppose one shouldn’t be surprised at this new development.  But still it does momentarily take one’s breath away to contemplate just how sleazy Israel’s motives can be.

SYRIA: CONTINUITY OF AGENDA DESTROYING SINCE 1983

Filed under: Senza Categoria — mirabilissimo100 @ 3:32 am

SIRIA ALEPPO DIFFERENZA

Continuity of Agenda: Destroying Syria, Since 1983

February 21, 2017 (Tony Cartalucci – NEO) – Syria’s current conflict, beginning in 2011, was the culmination of decades of effort by the United States to subvert and overthrow the government in Damascus. From training leaders of opposition fronts years before “spontaneous” protests erupted across Syria, to covertly building a multinational mercenary force to both trigger and leverage violence thereafter, the United States engineered, executed, and perpetuated virtually every aspect of Syria’s destructive conflict.

Enlisting or coercing aid from regional allies, including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Jordan, and Israel, Syria found itself surrounded at its borders and buried within them by chaos.

“Bringing Real Muscle to Bear Against Syria” 

But recently revealed CIA documents drawn from the US National Archives portrays recent efforts to undermine and overthrow the Syrian government and the Syrian conflict’s relationship with neighboring Lebanon and its ally Iran as merely the most recent leg in a decades-long campaign to destabilize and overturn regional governments obstructing US interests.

A 1983 document signed by former CIA officer Graham Fuller titled, “Bringing Real Muscle to Bear Against Syria” (PDF), states (their emphasis):

Syria at present has a hammerlock on US interests both in Lebanon and in the Gulf — through closure of Iraq’s pipeline thereby threatening Iraqi internationalization of the [Iran-Iraq] war. The US should consider sharply escalating the pressures against Assad [Sr.] through covertly orchestrating simultaneous military threats against Syria from three border states hostile to Syria: Iraq, Israel and Turkey. 

The report also states:

If Israel were to increase tensions against Syria simultaneously with an Iraqi initiative, the pressures on Assad would escalate rapidly. A Turkish move would psychologically press him further. 

The document exposes both then and now, the amount of influence the US exerts across the Middle East and North Africa. It also undermines the perceived agency of states including Israel and NATO-member Turkey, revealing their subordination to US interests and that actions taken by these states are often done on behalf of Wall Street and Washington rather than on behalf of their own national interests.

Also mentioned in the document are a variety of manufactured pretexts listed to justify a unilateral military strike on northern Syria by Turkey. The  document explains:

Turkey has considered undertaking a unilateral military strike against terrorist camps in northern Syria and would not hesitate from using menacing diplomatic language against Syria on these issues.

Comparing this signed and dated 1983 US CIA document to more recent US policy papers reveals a very overt continuity of agenda.


Decades-Spanning Continuity of Agenda 

The corporate-financier funded policy think tank, Brookings Institution, published a 2012 document titled, “Saving Syria: Assessing Options for Regime Change” (PDF), which stated:

Some voices in Washington and Jerusalem are exploring whether Israel could contribute to coercing Syrian elites to remove Asad. 

The report continues by explaining:

Israel could posture forces on or near the Golan Heights and, in so doing, might divert regime forces from suppressing the opposition. This posture may conjure fears in the Asad regime of a multi-front war, particularly if Turkey is willing to do the same on its border and if the Syrian opposition is being fed a steady diet of arms and training. Such a mobilization could perhaps persuade Syria’s military leadership to oust Asad in order to preserve itself. 

Just as the CIA sought to covertly apply pressure on Syria via Iraq, Israel, and Turkey in 1983, it seeks to do so today. Instead of to simply reopen a pipeline perceived as vital to the Iraqi war effort vis-a-vis Iran in the 1980s, the goal now is regime change altogether.

It should be noted that, in addition to the 1983 CIA document, US support for violent subversion in Syria during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq War also included the 1982 Muslim Brotherhood uprising and its subsequent defeat by Syrian forces within Syria – an almost verbatim analogue to the 2011 unrest that led to the current Syrian conflict – also organized and carried out by US-backed elements of the Muslim Brotherhood.

It should also be noted that while the 2011 conflict in Syria began under the administration of US President Barack Obama – according to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh’s article, “The Redirection: Is the Administration’s new policy benefitting our enemies in the war on terrorism?” – planning, training, and staging began at least as early as 2007 under the administration of US President George Bush.

A concerted, continuous conspiracy to manipulate events across the Middle East and North Africa and project American hegemony throughout the region spanning now seven US presidencies is perhaps the most telling evidence that deeply rooted special interests – a deep state – not America’s elected representatives, crafts and executes US policy at home and abroad.

Power is Held by Unelected Special Interests, Not Elected Representatives 

The notion that the recently elected US president, Donald Trump, can, is willing to, or is able to suddenly oppose the immense corporate-financier interests driving a concerted conspiracy spanning three decades lacks any basis in fact. In reality, those who President Trump surrounded himself with both during his campaign for the presidency and upon assembling his cabinet, are among the very conspirators behind this decades-long agenda.

For those who find themselves targets of US subversion and aggression, both overt and covert, understanding the deep state and the corporate-financier interests that comprise it driving these agendas is essential. Devising a means to expose, isolate, and otherwise disrupt the unwarranted power and influence they wield – rather than dealing with their political proxies in Washington – is the only way to balance the currently lopsided equation of global power.

For the American people and citizens of nations beholden to American interests, understanding that change will only come when the corporate-financier interests that constitute the deep state are confronted and decentralized, and not through elections involving proxies wholly beholden to the deep state, will be the first step toward taking back national institutions and resources hijacked by these special interests.

Syria: Document Reveals Plan To Destroy Syria For Oil and Predicts Current Conflict

Filed under: Senza Categoria — mirabilissimo100 @ 3:21 am

DominicBertolami

Apr 13, 2017

Syria has been at the center of a decades-long plot by the United States to depone the sovereign government and install one supportive of its business goals in the Middle East.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly castigated President Bashar al-Assad for ordering a gruesome mass killing of civilians with chemical weapons in Khan Sheikhoun. Due to insufficient investigation, this accusation, unsubstantiated, sparked overwhelming support for the Syrian regime from both Moscow and Tehran.

Could Trump have earned a congressional green light and perhaps approval from NATO to obliterate Syrian Arab Army forces responsible if the account of an ordered chemical weapons attack proved immutably true? Potentially.

Fifty-nine $1.87 million Tomahawk missiles raining down on a Syrian air base not long after the toxic gassing proves Trump to “stay in line” with a succession of pompously militant and combative presidents. It shows he is stands alongside the neocon political establishment’s longstanding mission to forcibly bend Syria to its own will.

Former CIA officer Graham Fuller discussed Syria under Assad’s predecessor, his father, Hafez al-Assad. It ‘s Entitled “Bringing Real Muscle to Bear Against Syria” and dated September 14, 1983, amid the Iran-Iraq War:

“Syria at present has a hammerlock on US interests both in Lebanon and in the Gulf — through closure of Iraq’s pipeline thereby threatening Iraqi internationalization of the war. The US should consider sharply escalating the pressures against Assad through covertly orchestrating simultaneous military threats against Syria from three border states hostile to Syria: Iraq, Israel and Turkey.”

1983 CIA Document Reveals Plan To Destroy Syria, Foreshadows Current Crisis

Fuller’s analysis conveys Assad as a nuisance hindering the American empire’s lust to control fossil fuel stores and protect ally, Israel, against multiple threats in the Middle East.

Destabilization of Iraq and Iran is also featured in the intricate U.S. plan to deal with the irritant, elder Assad, who recognized Western ulterior motives.

The six-page document continues:

“Syria continues to maintain a hammerlock on two key U.S. interests in the Middle East.

Syrian refusal to withdraw its troops from Lebanon ensures Israeli occupation in the south.
Syrian closure of the Iraqi pipeline has been a key factor in bringing Iraq to its financial knees, impelling it towards dangerous internationalization of the war in the Gulf.

Diplomatic initiatives to date have had little effect on Assad who has so far correctly calculated the play of forces in the area and concluded they are only weakly arrayed against him. If the U.S. is to rein in Syria’s spoiling role, it can only do so through the exertion of real muscle which will pose a vital threat to Assad’s position and power.”

With Iraq seeking to obtain support internationally in the war, the U.S. had to scramble to prevent the shutdown of a pipeline. This is a dilemma Fuller suggests could be alleviated through a “change in narrative to present Syria as a more deviant enemy than even Iran.” That, alone, could have changed the face of the war bearing the names of the two principal adversaries, Sunni majority, Iraq, and Syria-allied, Shi’a, Iran.

Fuller asserted:

“The US should consider urging Iraq to take the war to the other key source of its predicament: Syria.”

He continued:

“The US should consider sharply escalating the pressures against Assad [Sr.] through covertly orchestrating simultaneous military threats against Syria from three border states hostile to Syria: Iraq, Israel and Turkey. Iraq, perceived to be increasingly desperate in the Gulf war, would undertake limited military (air) operations against Syria with the sole goal of opening the pipeline. Although opening war on a second front against Syria poses considerable risk to Iraq, Syria would also face a two-front war since it’s already heavily engaged in the Bekaa, on the Golan and in maintaining control over a hostile and restive population inside Syria. Israel would simultaneously raise tensions along Syria’s Lebanon front without actually going to war. Turkey, angered by Syrian support to Armenian terrorism, to Iraqi Kurds on Turkey’s Kurdish border areas and to Turkish terrorists operating out of northern Syria, has often considered launching unilateral military operations against terrorist camps in northern Syria. Virtually all Arab states would have sympathy for Iraq. Faced with three belligerent fronts, Assad would probably be forced to abandon his policy of closure of the pipeline. Such a concession would relieve the economic pressure on Iraq, and perhaps force Iran to reconsider bringing the war to an end. It would be a sharpening blow to Syria’s prestige and could affect the equation of forces in Lebanon.”

In context, then-President Ronald Reagan faced pressure both to insert military power in neutral Lebanon, and to prohibit military assistance in the troubled regional entanglement. Until a suicide bomber decimated a U.S. Marines barracks encamped at an airport in Beirut, killing hundreds, just one month after the date on Fuller’s Syria action plan.

In “When America Attacked Syria”, Micah Zenko, Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations (a Deep State establishment think tank) wrote in 2012:

“The October 23, 1983, suicide truck bombing of the Marine barracks at the Beirut International Airport would kill 241 U.S. military personnel; simultaneously, another suicide bomber killed fifty-eight French servicemen of the MNF several kilometers away. (Two weeks later, yet another truck bomb exploded in the Israeli military headquarters in Tyre, killing sixty.) An FBI forensics assessment called the Marine barracks bombing the ‘ the biggest non-nuclear explosion since World War II.’ According to a Pentagon commission formed to investigate the attack, it was ‘tantamount to an act of war using the medium of terrorism.’ Within weeks, the CIA determined ‘the bombings…of the United States and French MNF headquarters were carried out by Shia radicals, armed, trained, and directed by Syria and Iran.’”

The fact the CIA determined fault for the bombings rested with Syria and Iran left both plausibly responsible, with public perception largely following suit.

A situation eerily similar is playing out nearly three-and-a-half decades later. Behind-the-scenes string-pulling and long-term U.S. commitment to deposing an Assad from rule in Syria bellows resoundingly on failures of interventionist foreign policy. Or, potentially, success.

“Such a threat must be primarily military in nature. At present there are three relatively hostile elements around Syria’s borders: Israel, Iraq and Turkey. Consideration must be given to orchestrating a credible military threat against Syria to induce at least some moderate change in its policies,” Fuller explained in the document. This paper proposes serious examination of all three states, acting independently, to exert the necessary threat. Use of any one state in isolation cannot create such a credible threat.”

Syria is now a landmine for the Trump administration as it’s been in for a lengthy succession of presidents before.

To comply with the neocon agenda by raining missiles upon Assad’s forces would rightly emblazon the already blood-stained U.S. government as chief aggressors in a conflict nearing resolution, if not become the catalyst for a third world war.

Syria:French ‘Proof’ That Assad Used Sarin in Khan Sheikhoun

Filed under: Senza Categoria — mirabilissimo100 @ 2:12 am

 

 

SIRIA ATTACCO GAS FINTO26 April 2017

French ‘Proof’ That Assad Used Sarin in Khan Sheikhoun Turns out to Be Complete BS

It’s based on circular logic. If anything, what little has been supposedly established actually points in the other direction

For over a week now France has claimed it has irrefutable evidence that Syrian military used gas against civilians earlier this month and would present it shortly.

It has now done so. It says it has determined that sarin used in the 2017 Khan Sheikhoun attack came from the same stock used in an earlier 2013 attack.

This is it. This is the extent of its super-duper evidence.

Because Paris “knows” the Syrian army used sarin in 2013, which Syria denies and was never proven, France now “knows” Syria also used sarin in 2017.

Anywhere else that would be called circular logic.

If anything, if samples from Khan Sheikhoun match sarin used in 2013 that makes it all the more likely that it came from rebel stock. The same stock they ultimately used to stage the East Ghouta false flag.

La Francia: “C’è il regime di Assad dietro la strage con il gas Sarin in Siria”

Il ministro degli Esteri francese: «Abbiamo le prove. Il presidente ha violato l’impegno preso nel 2013 di eliminare queste armi». Mosca: la nostra posizione non cambia

PARIGI

La Francia accusa il regime di Damasco. La Siria del presidente Bashar al-Assad è direttamente responsabile dell’attacco chimico del 4 aprile contro la città di Khan Sheikhun. Immediate le reazioni internazionali. La posizione della Russia «non cambia: come ha detto Putin ritengono che l’unico modo per stabilire la verità su quanto accaduto sia un’indagine internazionale imparziale», dice il portavoce del presidente Dmitri Peskov.

«Non ci sono dubbi sull’uso di gas Sarin – ha spiegato questa mattina il ministro degli Esteri, Jean-Marc Ayrault – e non ci sono dubbi neppure sulla responsabilità del regime siriano, tenendo conto del procedimento di fabbricazione del Sarin utilizzato». Una settimana fa il capo della diplomazia di Parigi aveva annunciato di avere «le prove» della responsabilità di Damasco nell’attacco che ha provocato oltre 80 morti. «Gli autori di questi atti criminali», ha avvertito Ayrault nella dichiarazione solenne dall’Eliseo, «dovranno rispondere dinanzi alla giustizia internazionale ma anche davanti alla storia»

I «servizi di intelligence – si legge in un comunicato diffuso al termine di un Consiglio di difesa che si è tenuto questa mattina all’Eliseo, alla presenza del capo dello Stato Francois Hollande – hanno presentato gli elementi che consentono di affermare in modo indipendente il coinvolgimento delle forze del regime siriano nell’attacco chimico perpetrato il 4 aprile a Khan Sheikhun. Questi elementi dimostrano inoltre che il regime è sempre in possesso di agenti chimici da guerra, in violazione degli impegni ad eliminarli che aveva preso nel 2013». Tutti elementi, conclude il comunicato, “saranno resi pubblici”.

Siria: la Francia accusa il regime di Assad dell’attacco chimico a Khan Sheikhoun

Pubblicato il 26 apr 2017

La Francia accusa il regime di Assad dell’attacco chimico nella provincia di Idlib del 4 aprile scorso. Il bombardamento è costato la vita a 87 persone.

Il ministro degli Esteri, Jean-Marc Ayrault, ritiene che non ci siano dubbi sul fatto che il gas sarin sia stato fabbricato nei laboratori siriani: “Sappiamo, da fonti attendibili, che il metodo di fabbricazione del sarin ritrovato sui corpi delle vittime è identico a quello sviluppato nei laboratori siriani – ha detto Ayrault – Questo metodo è…
