FALSE FLAG 3.0?: Syrian “Rebels” Accuse Gov’t of Chlorine Gas Attack, Army Calls It Fabrication

Reuters:

A Syrian rebel group accused the Syrian army of using chlorine gas against its fighters on Saturday in battles east of Damascus – an accusation the military swiftly denied as a fabrication.

The Failaq al-Rahman group said more than 30 people suffered suffocation as a result of the attack in Ain Tarma in the Eastern Ghouta region, which government forces have been battling to take back from insurgents.

In a statement circulated by state-run media, a military source said the army command completely denied the accusation. “It has not used any chemical weapons in the past, and will not use them at any time”.

The United States said on Wednesday the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad appeared so far to have heeded a warning issued earlier in the week not to carry out a chemical weapons attack after saying it saw possible preparations for one.

Western governments including the United States say the Syrian government was behind an April gas attack in the town of Khan Sheikhoun that killed dozens. In response, the United States fired cruise missiles at the air base from which it said the attack was launched.

The Syrian government has denied any role in that attack.

On Saturday the government also dismissed a report by the international chemical weapons watchdog that said the banned nerve agent sarin was used in the April attack in Khan Sheikhoun, saying it lacked “any credibility”.

SANA:

The General Command of the Army and Armed Forces said that claims made by some websites affiliated with terrorist groups about the Syrian Arab Army using chlorine gas against terrorists from “Failaq al-Rahman” in Ein Tarma are false and baseless.

In a statement on Saturday evening, the General Command said that some websites affiliated with terrorist groups are reporting false and baseless news in which they claim that the Syrian Arab Army used chlorine gas against terrorists from the so-called Failaq al-Rahman in Ein Tarma the Eastern Ghouta area in Damascus Countryside.

The General Command refuted these claims part and parcel, affirming that it never used chemical weapons before and will never use them as it doesn’t even possess them, asserting that these lies and false narratives have become apparent to everyone and cannot fool anyone, as they are fabricated by the terrorist groups to justify their defeats and heavy losses whenever the Syrian Arab Army makes progress in an area.

An official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry affirmed on Thursday that Syria has disposed of its chemical program completely as specialized international organizations can attest, stressing that Syria does not possess any chemical weapons and denounces their use strongly in any place, for any purpose, and under any pretext, asserting that Syria has never used toxic chemicals since the beginning of the crisis and that it cooperated with the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) fully following its joining of the chemical weapons convention.

Putin, “NO Regime Change in Syria”: US Ready to Destroy Another Nation

In News, Russia, Syria on September 19, 2015 at 9:12 AM

The post-Incirlik period looks like it could produce an entirely different outcome due to the fact that the US will be able to deploy its drones and warplanes from a Turkish airbase (Incirlik) that’s just 15 minutes flying-time from Syria.

That will boost the number of sorties the USAF can able to carry out while increasing the effectiveness of its jihadi forces on the ground which will conduct their operations under the protection of US air cover. This will greatly improve their chances for success.

The New York Times calls the Incirlik deal a “game-changer” which is an understatement. By allowing US F-16s to patrol the skies over Syria, Washington will impose a de facto no-fly zone over the country severely limiting Assad’s ability to battle the US-backed militias that have seized large swaths of the countryside and are now descending on Damascus.

And while the war cannot be won by airpower alone, this new tactical reality tilts the playing field in favor the jihadis. In other words, the Incirlik agreement changes everything.

putin-assad_2577178b

The Obama administration now believes that regime change is within its reach. Yes, they know it will require some back-up from US Special Forces and Turkish combat troops, but it’s all doable.  This is why Obama has shrugged off Russia’s plan for a transitional government or for forming a coalition to defeat ISIS.

The US doesn’t have to compromise on these matters because, after all, it has a strategically-located airbase from which it can protect its proxy-army, bomb cross-border targets, and control the skies over Syria.

All Obama needs to do is intensify the war effort, put a little more pressure on Assad, and wait for the regime to collapse. This is why we should expect a dramatic escalation as we begin Phase 2 of the conflict.

Russian President Vladimir Putin knows this, which is why he’s sending more weapons, supplies and advisors to Syria. He’s signaling to Washington that he knows what they’re up to and that he’ll respond if they carry things too far.

In an interview with Russia’s state Channel 1, Putin said, “We have our ideas about what we will do and how we will do it in case the situation develops toward the use of force or otherwise. We have our plans.”

The administration is very nervous about Putin’s plans which is why they keep probing to see if they can figure out what he has up his sleeve. Just days ago,  Secretary of State John Kerry phoned his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov to express his concerns about “an imminent enhanced Russian military buildup” in Syria.

The call was a clumsy attempt to trick Lavrov into volunteering information that might shed light on what Moscow intends to do if Washington goes ahead with its regime change strategy.  But Russia’s foreign minister didn’t take the bait. He stuck to his script and didn’t tell Kerry anything he didn’t already know.

But the fact is, Putin is not going to allow Assad to be removed by force. It’s that simple. Obama and his advisors suspect this, but they are not 100 percent certain so they keep looking for confirmation one way or the other.

But Putin is not going to provide a clear answer because he doesn’t want to tip his hand or appear confrontational. But that doesn’t mean he’s not resolute. He is, and Washington knows it. In effect, Putin has drawn a line in the sand and told the US that if they cross that line, there’s going to [be a] trouble.

So it’s up to Obama really. He can either seek a peaceful solution along the lines that Moscow has recommended or push for regime change and risk a confrontation with Russia. Those are the two choices.

Unfortunately, Washington doesn’t have an “off” switch anymore, so changing policy is really not in the cards. Instead, the US war machine will continue to lumber ahead erratically until it hits an impasse and sputters to a halt.

Once again, the immovable object will prevail over the unstoppable force (as it did in Ukraine), albeit at great cost to the battered people of Syria, their nation and the entire region.

Keep in mind, that the imperial plan for Syria is subtler than many people realize. As the Brookings Institute’s Michael E. O’Hanlon states in his piece titled “Deconstructing Syria: A new strategy for America’s most hopeless war”:

“The plan… would not explicitly seek to overthrow him (Assad), so much as deny him control of territory that he might still aspire to govern again. The autonomous zones would be liberated with the clear understanding that there was no going back to rule by Assad or a successor. In any case, Assad would not be a military target under this concept, but areas he currently controls… would be. And if Assad delayed too long in accepting a deal for exile, he could inevitably face direct dangers to his rule and even his person.” (“Deconstructing Syria: A new strategy for America’s most hopeless war”, Michael E. O’Hanlon, Brookings Institute)

This is the basic plan: To seize major cities and large parts of the countryside,  disrupt supply-lines and destroy vital civilian infrastructure, and to progressively undermine Assad’s ability to govern the country.

The ultimate goal is to break the state into a million disconnected enclaves ruled by armed mercenaries, al Qaida-linked affiliates, and local warlords. This is Washington’s diabolical plan for Syria.

It is strikingly similar to the Zionist plan to “effect the division of the whole area into small states by the dissolution of all existing Arab states.” (“The Zionist Plan for the Middle East”, Israel Shahak) In fact, it is virtually identical.

It’s clear that Obama is emboldened by the Incirlik deal and believes that, with Turkey’s help, he can achieve US imperial ambitions in Syria. But it’s not going to happen.  Russia, Iran and Hezbollah are prepared to defend their ally Assad and stop Washington dead-in-its-tracks.

Obama will have succeeded in destroying another sovereign nation and scattering its people across the Middle East and Europe. But the US mission will fall short of its original objectives. There will be no regime change in Syria. Putin, Nasrallah and Khamenei will make sure of it.

The Yinon Plan, “Greater Israel”, Syria, Iraq, and ISIS: the Connection

In Archive, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, News, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Syria, Zionism on January 17, 2015 at 7:05 AM

By The Times Of Pol

The Zionist Plan for the Middle East, also known as the Yinon Plan, is an Israeli strategic plan to ensure Israeli regional superiority. It insists and stipulates that Israel must reconfigure its geo-political environment through the balkanization of the surrounding Arab states into smaller and weaker states.

Reach of a "Greater Israel"When viewed in the current context, the war on Iraq, the 2006 war on Lebanon, the 2011 war on Libya, the ongoing war on Syria, not to mention the process of regime change in Egypt, must be understood in relation to the Zionist Plan for the Middle East. The latter consists in weakening and eventually fracturing neighboring Arab states as part of an Israeli expansionist project. 

“Greater Israel” consists in an area extending from the Nile Valley to the Euphrates.

Israeli strategists viewed Iraq as their biggest strategic challenge. This is why Iraq was outlined as the centerpiece to the balkanization of the Middle East and the Arab World. In Iraq, on the basis of the concepts of the Yinon Plan, Israeli strategists have called for the division of Iraq into a Kurdish state and two Arab states, one Shiite and the other Sunni.

The Atlantic, in 2008, and the U.S. military’s Armed Forces Journal, in 2006, both published widely circulated maps that closely followed the outline of the Yinon Plan. Aside from a divided Iraq, the Yinon Plan calls for a divided Lebanon, Egypt, and Syria. The Yinon Plan also calls for dissolution in North Africa and forecasts it as starting from Egypt and then spilling over into Sudan, Libya, and the rest of the region.

“Greater Israel” requires the breaking up of the existing Arab states into small states. The plan operates on two essential premises. To survive, Israel must

  1. become an imperial regional power, and
  2. must effect the division of the whole area into small states by the dissolution of all existing Arab states.

Small here will depend on the ethnic or sectarian composition of each state. Consequently, the Zionist hope is that sectarian-based states become Israel’s satellites and, ironically, its source of moral legitimation… This is not a new idea, nor does it surface for the first time in Zionist strategic thinking. Indeed, fragmenting all Arab states into smaller units has been a recurrent theme.

Viewed in this context, the war on Syria is part of the process of Israeli territorial expansion. Israeli intelligence working hand in glove with the US, Turkey and NATO is directly supportive of the Al Qaeda terrorist mercenaries inside Syria.

The Zionist Project also requires the destabilization of Egypt, the creation of factional divisions within Egypt as instrumented by the “Arab Spring” leading to the formation of a sectarian based State dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Richard Perle.

Similarly, although tweaked, the Yinon Plan is in motion and coming to life under the Clean Break”. This is a policy document written in 1996 by Richard Perle and the Study Group on “A New Israeli Strategy Towards 2000″ for Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel at the time.

Like many in the neoconservative movement, Perle had long been an advocate of regime change in Iraq. In 1998 Perle led an effort known as the Project for the New American Century with close neoconservative allies Wolfowitz, Woolsey, Elliott Abrams, and John Bolton. The Project culminated in a letter sent to US President Bill Clinton calling for the military overthrow of Saddam Hussein’s regime.

Prior to and after the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Perle held several exclusive meetings in his home where he discussed issues regarding American foreign policy on Iraq. In an effort to help fund their goals, Ahmed Chalabi an Iraqi-born businessman and founder of the Iraqi National Congress, helped Perle secure millions of dollars from the U.S. government in 1990. Chalabi was one of the key figures driving the war in Iraq and helped transmit important “information” to U.S congress and the public that would successfully help sell the war effort.

One might remember that it was PNAC that also published the now infamous documentRebuilding Americas Defenses” in which the following statement was made:

Further, the process of transformation [of the military], even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event––like a new Pearl Harbor”.

Finally, as mentioned above, the Armed Forces Journal published an article in 2006 entitled: “Blood Borders”.

What follows are maps based upon the description in the article. One is the Middle East as it currently exists, and the other is the Middle East according to the suggestions in the article:

Blood borders: before and after.

Blood borders: before and after.

You will note how congruent these divisions are with both the Yinon Plan and “Clean Break”.

You might also note that the advance of ISIS in Iraq, thus far, is congruent with all three documents. They are not engaging the Kurds and have stopped North of Baghdad, thus effectively dividing Iraq into three states as pictured on the map: Free Kurdistan, Sunni Iraq, and the Arab Shia State.

Only time will tell whether ISIS attempts to push into Baghdad, or whether the city, itself, is divided along sectarian lines. As you can see in the image, Baghdad is right on the border of “Sunni Iraq” and the “Arab Shia” State.

Here is a map of recent movements of the ISIS insurgency:

ISIS advance.
Recent ISIS advances. source

You will notice, by comparing them to the map above that they have control over the area depicted as “Sunni Iraq”. With the exception of Kirkuk, you will notice that the territory that they control aligns roughly with the borders of the proposed “Sunni Iraq” in the Blood Borders image above.

The following image is an overlay of the map of ISIS controlled territory over the map of the newly proposed borders of the Middle East to make it easier to see the congruity between ISIS movements and the Yinon plan:

Recent advances of ISIS, overlaid with borders proposed by Yinon plan.
Recent advances of ISIS, overlaid with borders proposed by Yinon plan.

While there are various conceptions of the borders of “Greater Israel” (Eretz Israel HaShlema), here is an overlay of the image of “Greater Israel” (above) on the map of the newly proposed borders of the Middle East to give a sense of the area of balkanized Arab states that Israel would have in its sphere of influence if the Yinon Plan is successfully implemented:

"Greater Israel" overlaid over the proposed borders.
“Greater Israel” overlaid over the proposed borders.

Either the Yinon Plan is actually being implemented, using the sectarian animosity within the Muslim community as the vector or it is phenomenally coincidental that from Sudan, to Egypt, Libya, Syria, and Iraq the essential tenets of the Yinon Plan are being implemented.

It would certainly explain many of incongruities that we see in US foreign policy, especially with regard to our decision to arm and fund radical Islamic groups in Syria.

Islamic State – Cubs – Total War

In Activism, Archive, ASIO, CIA, DAILY NEWS ARCHIVE, Drones, leaksource, World Revolution on November 4, 2014 at 10:51 AM

Total war is a concept which brings every element of a human existence to one simple finite point, the destruction of the enemy. Any means are justified, including the radicalisation of children through continued extremist indoctrination and normalisation to the horrors of war.
Orphans in Syria and Libya offer fertile fodder for such programming. This will become a long and protracted conflict that will continue for the rest of this century

Gold And Silver – Elites Want War. Front Man Obama Pushing Hard

GoldSeek; By Michael Noonan

The modus operandi of the elites is to create chaos, preferably in the form of [profitable for them] war. Their purpose is to create major headaches for governments and people. The next step is to “offer solutions” to end the chaos. Without fail, the solutions always favor the elite who gain more control as part of the cost for the rescue.

Why war? A simple diversion used to cover the total insolvency of the entire Western banking system and the failure of all fiat currencies. The only solution will be financial destruction, and major economic life disruptions, especially in the ill-prepared United States. Previews of what is in store for the United States are found in Greece, Cyprus, Ireland, Venezuela, Argentina. The list grows.

There is only one head of state pushing for war against Russia, using Ukraine as a pawn, and that is the elite front-man, Barack Obama. What business does he have instigating chaos in that part of the world? None, quite simply, yet he leads the charge.

Are the citizens of the United States urging him on? No. What about the Europeans who transact billions of dollars in business with Russia, depend upon Russia for 20% to 35% to supply their natural gas needs? Are individual European states urging him on? No. Too much at risk, and European leaders do not want to bear the consequences of yet more sanctions that can end up hurting them more than hurting Russia.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was in Washington this weekend, giving the appearance of being supportive of Obama but not offing it, directly. Ms Merkel may soon be saying auf weidersehen to her job within another year. If the German people are foolish enough to let the head Frau help decimate the German economy, through risking hundreds of thousands of jobs, risking future contracts between major German corporations and Russia, then like the docile Americans, the Germans will only have themselves to blame.

If European states are opposed to more sanctions that will ending harming them, then Obama has no other support, as he supports an illegal coup d’etat, the overtaking of an elected government, and blames Putin for breaking rules. Well, there is that unelected, non-representative group, the IMF, which is in Obama’s hypocritical corner. The IMF promised Ukraine $17 billion in tranched loans, with one small catch in the not so fine print: Ukraine, you must go to war against pro-Russian forces and take the eastern part of Ukraine, or you do not get your money!

Now we have the IMF, [Rothschilds] telling one country to start a civil war and capture the Eastern Ukraine. This is how the elites work, and the Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Barack Obama, is their front man, leading the charge, just like he did in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan. Egypt was a purely political manuever. Libya has oil, and prior to the killing of Muammar Gaddafi, that country used to own gold, which was the first order of business to ransack, just as the Ukrainian gold was the first thing to disappear, into greedy Western thieving hands. But always remember, according to Western interests, gold has not useful value, at least not in your hands. Syria is important for Russian access to ship natural gas to Europe, and the US sees it as a threat to the petro-dollar. Afghanistan has heroin that supports the CIA drug trade and a huge source of profitable money laundering for the Rothschild banking cartel.

What of Ukraine? It may be just what the elite needs, once attempts to provoke war in Syria failed. Why is attacking and capturing Eastern Ukraine so important? It has rich farmland that produces income, unlike to poorer Western Ukraine being exploited. Without the income from the eastern farmland, how else will the IMF ever get repaid?

What has this to do with the price of gold and silver? Both PMs need to be kept suppressed and not viewed as an alternative to the world’s largest Ponzi scheme, the Rothschild Western banking system, totally corrupt and insolvent to its core, but also totally in charge of all Western governments. The BRICS nations have created a fissure that continues to grow and remains the most viable threat to the West.

Expectations are that more European companies will start aligning themselves with Russia and China. Germany remains a key player, in that regard. Aligning herself with Obama may be what costs Merkel her job. Good riddance.

It seemed developing events would have already had an impact on gold and silver, but last week’s yet another manipulation “take-down” delayed the inevitable. It should be an overt reminder to all of the control the elites have to do whatever is necessary in order to maintain their power. Maybe there will be more “suicided” events where mid-tier bankers do their utmost best to defy gravity from varying heights of buildings.

[As an aside for our foreign readers, suicide is the taking of one’s life. Use of the term “suicided” implies that the official reports of suicide in the 14 deaths, to date, may have been, shall we say, involuntarily assisted, hence suicided.]

The French banker, a woman named Lydia, was considered to be the first female to be “suicided,” by her attempt to defy gravity and leap to her death. Somehow, Sumana Sultana, 44, a banker for Rupali Bank escaped attention when she hung herself from her bedroom ceiling fan, back in January. That brings the sudden rash of banker “suicides” to 15.

It is a function of the elites to create problems like Ukraine, and/or any other area in which distractions can be used and keep people focusing on the wrong issues. The fundamentals for gold and silver are not connected to price because of Rothschild-like efforts, as we have been saying for the past few months. Until then, except for accumulating physical gold and silver at these absurdly low, artificial levels, keep one’s powder dry and use reasonably close stops if entering the paper market.

A look at the charts:

The monthly remains in a TR holding its 1200 area lows very well.

It is easier to see the sideways movement from the thin line connecting the swing highs and swing lows. Price needs to rally above the 1390 area to turn the near term trend up.

Notice how price sell-offs are labored, relative to the wide range rally bars. It is an overall positive sign in market activity, and it may set the stage for long positions in the futures market.

The monthly shows silver still bottoming, and the word patience keeps coming to mind.

Price sell-offs continue to hold, but lower swing highs show an inability of buyers to wrest control from sellers. Another test of support could weaken it sufficiently for sellers to get another new low, wiping out a lot of stops and weak longs. Otherwise, recent lows may provide an anchor for trading futures from the long side

The composition of the market activity shows selling dropped at Thursday’s recent new lows. This is a plus for buyers who will recognize that sellers were AWOL when they had a clear opportunity to drive price lower. Friday’s increased volume, wide range rally bar reflects how buyers acted and took advantage of the market-generated information.
