Syrian Theatre – Truth depends on who is presenting it

2 Comments

Truth depends on who is presenting it…

In the red corner stands Assad, Russia and Iran + their media

And

In the green corner USA, UK, operatives from Al Qaeda, Hamas, Somalis, local rebels, Chechens, Afghans, Pakistanis, Egyptians, etc. Some supply weapons, others use them. + Sympathetic international media

In category green we have basically two main groups:

–          Murderous lot that often carry out the cleansing and blame it on Assad : Al Qaeda, Hamas, Somalis, Chechens, Afghans, Pakistanis, Egyptians etc.

–          Local rebels who bear the brunt of Assad & Co. and also, ironically, their fighting partners extracurricular activities like rape, indiscriminate slaughter and other incidental activity.

Western nations supporting the rebels falsely assume that they (western nations) are fighting for the liberty/democratization of Syria. But in actuality they are assisting the murderous lot gain another foothold in the region. And if Assad is overthrown it is highly unlikely that the unholy gentlemen involved will simply pack up their guns and bombs and move to another theatre. Hardly, they will demand a share the spoils of war, a war between the good, the bad and the ugly.

And one cannot overlook the reason for the altruism of western nations. There is no such thing as a free lunch. They too would want their pound of flesh.

And lastly, the religious gendarmes will be waiting in the wings to ‘guide and indoctrinate’ the faithful back onto the path of peace with threats and imposition of Sharia.

Every murderous actor wins, except the audience.

They pay with their women and blood.

Here is a News report on the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria which states the obvious – that ‘all’ sides are complicit in the rape and murder of civilians and the looting of property.

Excerpts from News Report on the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria: LINK

“If the national, regional and international actors fail to find a solution to the conflict and stop the agony of millions of civilians,” Pinheiro warned, “the alternative will be the political, economic and social destruction of Syria and its society, with devastating implications for the region and the world.”

The lengthy report is based on information from 443 interviews that U.N. investigators conducted inside Syria.

One of the more disturbing passages details rebels and government forces recruiting boys as young as 12. Children under 18 are seized at checkpoints, and government-affiliated militia use sectarian affiliation, kinship systems and cash to cajole children into their ranks, the paper notes. The government has used children as informants, but both they and rebels punish children who act as informants by killing them, the report says.

An uncorroborated video, investigators say, seems to show a child associated with an anti-government group beheading a prisoner.

The report says rebels frequently use schools as barracks or offices, children have taken up arms to fight and rebels have used them as lookouts.

But the war has affected the body itself. Last week, rebels detained 21 U.N. peacekeepers, claiming they came into an area where they didn’t belong and saying they suspected the peacekeepers were secretly trying to help government forces. The captives were released a few days ago.

The Syrian government, meanwhile, has consistently blamed “armed terrorist groups” for killing civilians. While the regime has often referred to opposition fighters as “terrorists,” some radical militants — such as members of the Nusra Front – have also joined the fight against the government.

Last year, the United States blacklisted the Nusra Front as a foreign terror organization. The move baffles Syrian rebels, an analyst said.

Many Syrians see the group as heroes of the revolution because of its professionalism and its willingness to fight and take causalities, said Jeffrey White, a defense analyst at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy. The organization is active in eight provinces, he said.

More than 70,000 Syrians — mostly civilians — have been killed since peaceful anti-government protests led to a fierce government crackdown, an armed uprising and a civil war with no end in sight.

On Tuesday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry urged patience.

“We want to stop the killing. And they want to stop the killing. The world wants to stop the killing,” he said.

End of Report

(Note: It is the USA which supplies among other things – tear gas to Egypt and Bahrain who in turn use the gas on their own citizens. One wonders what is being supplied to the “rebels” – a guide book on how to set up a democratic society ?)

Boston and London Bombings – Message for the FBI

2 Comments

From media reports it appears that there exists an insidious proliferation of ‘in-house’ terror in which focus is on those that have adopted other countries as their own. It seeks to attract those that have ‘live’ strings attached to their ‘home country’. These ‘live’ strings are family, relatives, and religion (dogma/indoctrination).

The ‘new sleeper’ cells are not unlike those during the Cold War era. In this case the ‘sleeper’ cells’ are people who are dissatisfied economically, and/or culturally or simply inclined to make an ‘impression – to show who they are’ (macho ismplaying an important part as one doesn’t see women being a part of this). These ‘targeted’ individuals (targeted by ‘well meaning religious retards infected by skewered politics’) become prime subjects for ‘use’  by those vested interests that constantly attempt to infiltrate, to cause mayhem in the adopted country.

Suffice to say, the first casualty is the innocent bystander who pays with his/her life. This enrages the affected society and creates further schisms between peoples and the religions to which these ‘sleepers’ belong (this is seen as a battle won by the instigators).

So how does a country sift the chaff from the grain? How does the adopted country pre-empt such mass murders? Is it through bigotry, segregation, surveillance like big brother or downright incarceration on flimsy grounds?

What we are witnessing today is a paradigm shift from the old ways of communism vs. capitalism. There appears to be a mindset shift that is being used more effectively than a spy network because it is so diffused and does not have a ‘structure’ that can be identified, labeled and eliminated. Its effectiveness can be attributed to ‘loose cannons’ ignited anywhere and everywhere by ‘religious indoctrination’, basically putting the ‘fear of a chosen God’ into the minds of the targeted person/people by those who are the ‘pathfinders’. These people who exist somewhere else are the ones that press the buttons of the ‘vulnerable sleepers’ thus preying on the ‘instability’ of the ‘sleepers’ and awaking within them a ‘sense of self-worth, justice and assisting them to commit a heinous crime against a ‘perceived’ injustice – translated into plain English – a murderous attack again innocent defenseless people. The ‘enemy’ being the adopted country that has given the perpetrators shelter, equal opportunity, equal rights and a higher standard of living.

In the case of the London bombings it was innocent commuters and in Boston… in the image of an 8 year old child.

There have been three waves of immigrants in the last 100 odd years.

–       The first wave came in the 1920s.

–       The second wave during the Cold War.

–       The Third wave on and after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Since then all one has seen is formation of political gymnastics and the sickening sight of strange bedfellows. For instance, it appears that the US is fighting on the same side as Al Qaeda, Hamas etc. against the incumbent ruler of Syria…unwittingly aligning itself to the ‘sleeper’ cells in the US.

So how does a country that opens it arms to immigrants and flies the flag of human rights fight this ‘below the belt’ war that attempts to undermine the basic foundation of a nation born on the idea that all peoples are free?

Below is the profile of the London Bombers. Compare these to the two lads from Chechnya who were the epitome of law abiding students in the USA. And then ponder the rational for their bloody end in Boston.

London Bombers: LINK

Charles ClarkeHome Secretary when the attacks occurred, described the bombers as “cleanskins“, a term describing them as previously unknown to authorities until they carried out their attacks. On the day of the attacks, all four had travelled to Luton, Bedfordshire, by car, then to London by train.

THINK.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT RELIGION.

Heil EEC

What Hitler couldn’t do the EEC is doing to Britain!

The British Government is now subservient to the EEC.

The British Courts don’t have the final word in deporting undesirables like Mr. Abu Qatada, the European Court does.

Europol, EU’s crime intelligence agency has demanded access to British police files. This includes all information held by British police, including evidence files on children, victims, witnesses and other people never even suspected of a crime. LINK Telegraph.co.uk

Hitler must be laughing in his grave.

I just received a mail from a friend in Munich who has laughingly suggested that Merkel should be appointed the PM of Britain as the British won’t object because their Royal Family is of German descent.

So when are the true blue British going to stand up and stop this nonesense? 

Shame on you India – is this how the police treat your women?

Even after the horrible Delhi Rape and the subsequent Ordinance nothing has changed. Rape is on the rise and crimes against women, too. Sadly the very people entrusted to protect the women are themselves beating them!

In the video you will see how police are dragging and beating a woman.

NEWS REPORT

The body of a six year old girl was found at a garbage dump in Aligarh, about 330 kms from Lucknow, triggering large protests as her parents alleged that she had been murdered after being raped. Shocking footage of the demonstrations showed a policeman dragging and beating the child’s mother and another senior police officer beating an old lady with his lathi…

Religion of non-violence – Burma’s Bin Laden – the Buddhist monk who fuels hatred

Leave a comment

Wirathu calls himself the ‘Burmese Bin Laden’. He is a Buddhist monk who is stoking religious hatred across Burma. His paranoia and fear, muddled with racist stereotypes and unfounded rumours, have helped to incite violence and spread misinformation in a nation still stumbling towards democracy. Wirathu speaks to the Guardian at his Masoeyein monastery in Mandalay.

I wonder what the Dalai Lama has to say about these jokers?
