Russia's Relationship With Israel And The S-300 Controversy

Ever since the Israeli-Syrian skirmish (falsely reported as an Israeli-Iranian clash in Syria by the mainstream press), questions have been circulating about what this means for Syria, Israel, Iran and the region, even the rest of the world. Was the retaliation by Syria all that was needed to finally make Israel understand that there might be consequences for its actions? Is this the beginning of a wider war between the two? What will be the response of the United States? The response of Russia?

While a full-on military conflict between Syria and Israel did not happen in the hours after the missiles ceased firing, it was announced by the Russians that Russia would not be sending its famed S-300s to Syria. This was despite a warning by the Russians earlier that the previous U.S. missile strikes against Syria removed all “moral hurdles” previously in Russia’s way to do so. The new Russian announcement seemed to coincide with a trip to Russia made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who has been campaigning against a transfer of those air defense missile systems for quite some time. As a result, many have been wondering whether or not Russia is going back on its support of Syria or if it is becoming infected with the virus that has made the United States exist in a symbiotic relationship with Israel. Indeed, this one announcement is leading many to question Russia’s entire relationship with Israel.

The S-300 Issue

There are several questions surrounding the announcement that the Russians would not be sending Syria its S-300 air defense missile system. Among those questions are “Why did the Russians decide not to do so? Do the Syrians already have the missiles? Does the truth lie somewhere in between?”

Cholera Vaccine Not As Effective As Claimed, Here’s The Real Reason Disease Went Down

It has long been known that clean water and sanitation lead to better health among the human population. However, vaccine nazis have for just as long attempted to deny the correlation and argue that the increase standards of public health were due to vaccines. Among unbiased researchers, however, that perception cannot help but go unchallenged.

In 2016, a number of researchers wrote to The American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene to question the effectiveness of the oral cholera vaccine deployed in Haiti. To be clear, the researchers were not questioning the safety of the vaccine or vaccines in general but that the effectiveness of the vaccine had been overestimated by previous research teams.

Their argument was that the vaccine was tested alongside increased sanitation practices, possibly over-inflating the success rate of the shot. They argued that the vaccine should have been tested and evaluated by itself.

The researchers wrote:

Oral cholera vaccination (OCV) has been validated by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a valuable tool to complement water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) activities in cholera prevention for high-risk areas and populations.1 We read with great interest the recent study published by Sévère and others,2 which evaluated the effectiveness of a mass OCV campaign targeting approximately 70,000 inhabitants in several slums of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, between April and June 2012. The authors reported a 75% vaccine coverage and, using a cohort design, a striking 97.5% vaccine effectiveness in the 37 months postvaccination, whereas controlled clinical trials have measured OCV vaccine efficacy around 57% [95% confidence interval, 44–67%] during the first 2 years.3 Although it was expected that 56% of cholera cases would occur among vaccinated individuals according to the WHO screening method,4 the same proportion was 5% in the Sévère and others cohort.

Only a month after a teacher in Idaho teacher allegedly fed a live puppy to a snapping turtle in front of his class, yet another public school teacher has caused a controversy by torturing an animal to death in front of students by slowly drowning them in a garbage can full of water. This time, the psychopath in question resides in Florida and the incident at Forest High School in Marion County was caught on camera. The victims were two raccoons and an opossum.

An investigation is now underway after a student brought home a video recording of the incident that the students were forced to participate in. The students’ mother said that the student came home in tears over being forced to take part in the murder.

Apparently, the raccoons were blamed for killing chickens being raised by the agricultural class. The teacher trapped the racoons in a wire cage. He then filled a large garbage can with water and lowered the raccoons into the water-filled can. As the raccoons struggled to get their heads above water in order to breathe, the teacher and his students held them down with metal rods.

An opossum was later found (not blamed for killing chickens) and was killed for sport. 

The students were forced to take part and anyone who refused was threatened with a “referral,” which means punishment.

"It made me sick. It made me sick to my stomach. It's terrible. It still does make me sick to my stomach," the woman said.

As vaccine nazis and the Big Pharma corporations repeatedly claim that there is no evidence to show that vaccines are harmful, the science doing just that continues to quietly be published and subsequently ignored by the fanatics determined to push vaccinations on the general public, individual choice be damned.

Many of the studies demonstrating the dangers of vaccines are predictably buried and ignored by the mainstream outlets and, while some are advertised in the alt media, many more simply appear in medical journals never to be seen again.

One such study, “Behavioral abnormalities in female mice following administration of aluminum adjuvants and the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil,” published in Immunologic Research in 2016 has also received little attention.

However, this study is important because it demonstrates a potential link between the Gardasil vaccine and neuroinflammation and autoimmune reactions as well as subsequent behavioral changes.

The study was focused on investigating the link between adverse effects and vaccine adjuvants. The study acknowledges the deceptive practice undertaken by most human vaccine trials of using aluminum adjuvants as a placebo in an effort to mask the actual negative effects of the vaccine in the results of the trial. This study attempted to look at the adjuvants when measured by a true placebo.

The trial was conducted on mice using Gardasil, Garadasil + Pertussis toxin, al hydroxide, or “vehicle control” in amounts that would be equal to those given to humans.

GM Apples Being Sold On Amazon Without Label

Arctic Apples are fruit that has been genetically modified not to brown when they are cut. Because the genetic modification process is what prevents the browning, these apples are now being sold on places like Amazon as “preservative free.” In addition, they are being sold without disclosing the fact that they are genetically engineered.

The United States does not require labeling of GMOs so there is nothing illegal about selling food products without disclosing GM elements. The apples are tellingly only being sold in the U.S., a country that is fast becoming the most toxic food supply in the world outside of China.

But while it may not be illegal, selling GM Arctic Apples could very well be dangerous and it is a violation of a consumers’ right to know if they are purchasing a product that could harm their health.

GM Arctic Apples have not been properly safety tested and regulators in the United States have yet to assess the health or environmental risks of the genetic engineering process used to produce the apples. Of course, we all know that U.S. regulators are not going to have a problem with any genetically engineered food product as they have essentially acted as Monsanto’s errand boys for years.

Still, for those who may be concerned, consumers should be aware that the Arctic Apples are created by using a “gene-slicing technique called RNAi or RNA interference. Independent scientists warn that products engineered using RNAi might silence the genes or otherwise affect the gene expression of non-target organisms. In this case, non-target organisms include humans who eat the apples.”

GM Watch has requested that reader who are concerned over the unlabeled GM products leave a comment on the product page demanding that Amazon properly inform consumers what they are purchasing.

USDA Burns Hundreds Of Healthy Kittens To Death After Conducting Experiments On Them

Time marches on but it seems that every day the United States seems to be moving backward, particularly with how it treats its most vulnerable. This applies not only to humans to but to animals as well. With reports such as those coming out of Idaho where a science teacher fed a live puppy to a snapping turtle in front of his class to the halls of the USDA itself, animal cruelty is becoming a sanctioned behavior so long as it is done in the name of food, entertainment, or in the name of the new religion of “science” – all three things Americans have gorged themselves on for the last two and a half decades.

Now, reports that the USDA is killing hundreds of kittens at its test lab in Prince George County Maryland have drawn the ire of a Michigan Congressman.

Congressman Mike Biship of Michigan announced that he has sent a letter to the Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue in order to express his concerns about the activities of the Beltville USDA lab.

Bishop stated in his letter that hundreds of kittens are bred for testing, fed parasite-infected raw meat for a number of weeks, and then killed by “incineration.” According to Bishop, the USDA admits that the kittens are even healthy at the end of the experiment.

Let that sink in. The USDA is conducted years worth of seemingly useless experiments on kittens. When the experiment is finished, the healthy kittens are then apparently burned to death by the researchers."

Trump's Pull Out Of Nuclear Deal Was Planned From The Beginning - One Step Closer To The "Path To Persia," War With Iran

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
May 9, 2018

On Tuesday, May 8, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the United States will be pulling out of the “Iran Nuclear Deal” which was struck under the Obama administration, a deal that he has repeatedly called a “bad deal” and even “the single worst deal I’ve ever seen drawn by anybody.”

“The so-called Iran deal was supposed to protect the United States and our allies from the lunacy of an Iranian nuclear bomb, a weapon that will only endanger the survival of the Iranian regime,” the President said. “In fact, the deal allowed Iran to continue enriching uranium and over time reach the brink of a nuclear breakout.”

He added that “Today, we have definitive proof that this Iranian promise was a lie.”

Yet there is absolutely no evidence to back Trump up on his claims. Even Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats have stated that Iran is living up to its commitments. Still, Trump has argued in the past that, while Iran may be sticking to its commitments, it is violating the “spirit” of the agreement by “fostering discord” in the region.

This is highly ironic considering that the United States is the single biggest fosterer of discord in the Middle East alongside Israel. It’s also false that Iran is “fostering discord” and that it is not living up to its end of the deal. It should also be pointed out that Iran was doing nothing wrong in terms of its nuclear program before the deal and should never have been bullied into signing it to begin with.

Now, a sovereign country who has a right to pursue a nuclear energy program is being told by aggressive nuclear states that it cannot be allowed to be armed in the same manner, develop an adequate energy program, or defend itself against the aggression of the very states marching across the region and repeatedly stating their desire to overthrow, destabilize, or invade Iran.

Most University Medical Research Brought To You By Big Pharma

Brandon Turbeville
May 9, 2018

Partly a result in the decrease in government funding in innovation, health, science, and general development and partly a result of the close connection between major corporations, government, and academia, there has been a major increase in the “financial partnerships” between universities and Big Pharma over the past several years. Once a relatively rare occurrence, Big Pharma/Big Ed partnerships have become a common sight, with many corporations maintaining massive “integrated programs” and “science hubs” in university institutions. The focus of these programs are not necessarily public health but the development of drugs for Big Pharma profits.

GlaxoSmithKline at Harvard, AstraZeneca at the University of Washington, and Pfizer at the University of California are some of the most glaring examples, but they are by no means even the tip of the iceberg in Big Pharma/Big Ed partnerships. As writes in its article “Big Pharma Pays Universities For Most Medical Research In the United States,

In fact, with the increasing financial ties between academia and the pharmaceutical industry, many drug companies have formed specialized divisions that are solely responsible for seeking research and development relationships with academic institutions.

One such reason for a greater reliance on Big Pharma for research money is the decline in interest of the U.S. government to fund projects that would theoretically benefit human health and increase living standards through progress and development. For instance, a report in the British Medical Journal stated that “An estimated 60% of biomedical research and development in the United States is now privately funded, and two thirds of academic institutions have equity ties with outside sponsors.” In other words, over half of the medical research conducted at universities is conducted with funding from Big Pharma itself.

China No Longer Accepting World’s Garbage, Time For A National Recycling Program

China No Longer Accepting World's Garbage, Time for A National Recycling ProgramBrandon Turbeville

May 8, 2018

In 2017, China announced that it would no longer be accepting much of the world’s trash in the coming year. In January, it followed through with that announcement and stopped accepting 24 types of waste which includes plastics, mining slap, garbage textiles, and plastics. China’s stated reason for no longer accepting the waste is its own concerns over pollution domestically.

This new policy has caused shockwaves in the United States, Ireland, Germany, Canada, and a number of European countries who are now rushing to figure out a solution to their growing piles of trash that had previously just been sent overseas.

If sanity were to prevail of course, the United States and fellow countries would immediately begin developing methods of recycling and industries/services to do just that domestically. A national recycling program would be a perfect solution that would not only recycle the material that is now piling up but also clean up the American environment and create good paying jobs. In other words, a national recycling program funded by low to zero percent interest credit from a nationalized Federal Reserve that would see the entire country's garbage recycled and sold at a profit as well as the recycling of material already buried in landfills.

Instead, however, the United States is attempting to force China to accept its trash by using the World Trade Organization’s enforcement mechanism for the “Free Trade” and the “Global Economy” that has ruined the living standards of virtually every country that has embraced it. The U.S. is arguing that China’s new policy is causing a “fundamental disruption in global supply chains for scrap materials.”

Why Millennials Have Way More In Common With Their Grandparents’ Generation

Millennials are Behaving More and More Like Their Grandparents…

Millennials, once considered the most rebellious of all generations, are confounding their parents’ generation and onlookers yet again with the newfound realization that the current generation has more in common with their grandparents than their parents.

As Katherine Martinko writes in her article, “Millennials Are Behaving More Like Their Grandparents,”

Young people’s interest in ‘healthy, clean living’ has them cooking, crafting, and counting their pennies in ways that baffle their Boomer parents. 
Young people are not the wild whippersnappers they used to be, according to an amusing article in the Wall Street Journal. While their parents would have been chugging beers, microwaving pizzas, and watching soap operas, this next generation of adults is more inclined to sip non-alcoholic beverages on a Saturday night, eat fennel instead of fries, and participate in hot yoga and terrarium-building classes for entertainment. 
It’s a curious change in habits for an age group that has long been associated with rebellion and pushing limits, but one that Alison Angus, an analyst for Euromonitor, says reflects young people’s desire “to assert control and find comfort in an unstable world.” Angus said: 
“They feel they can make a difference, and this influences their spending choices. This means more saying no: no to alcohol; no to unhealthy habits; no to animal-based products and, increasingly, no to unmeasured or uninformed spending.”

Israel Setting The Stage To Attack Iran Over Phony Claims Of Iranian Missile Threats

Brandon Turbeville

May 8, 2018

Over the past several days, Israel has been throwing its typical series of fits and tantrums both to its patron in Washington and to the “international community” that Iran may finally have the gall to defend itself. Of course, Iran’s possible actions are not presented as self-defense but as unjustified aggression and “hatred” of the settler state. Israel is typically declaring its right to “defend itself” but, in reality, that “defense” is  nothing more than another act of offense in a long line of offenses against Iran.

Israeli media is now boosting up the idea that Iran is planning to launch missiles at Jerusalem as well as a coordinated attack against Israel with Hezbollah and “Shiites” in Syria as revenge for the numerous illegal attacks against Iran that Israel has undertaken in Syria over the last seven years.

One need only take a look at a recent article published in the Jerusalem Post to see a sampling of what Israeli media and the Israeli government are attempting to get across in terms of laying the groundwork for a “pre-emptive” strike on Iran. The article reads,

Israel is bracing for a barrage of missiles to be launched toward military positions along its northern front from Syria by Shi’ite militias trained and funded by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps. 
Iran is reportedly very determined to carry out an attack. Intelligence reports have indicated such an attack is in the advanced planning stages and might soon be executed as Iran vowed to do in retaliation for an alleged Israeli air strike against the T4 airbase near Homs used by the IRGC two months ago.

Israel has allegedly uncovered involvement by Hezbollah commanders and senior operatives from Shi’ite militias in the planning of the retaliatory strike. It is believed these militias, along with experts from Hezbollah under the command of the IRGC’s Quds Force Commander Maj.-Gen. Qassem Soleimani, will launch precision-guided missiles or armed drones from a base in Syria. 

U.S, France Setting The Stage For Another False Flag Chem Attack In Syria To Justify More Bombing

As Israel sets the stage for a possible attack on Iranian forces inside Syria under the false pretext of “pre-emptive” self-defense against Iranian missiles, it appears that the United States and France are attempting to set a stage of their own. This stage, however, will be the same tired scene replayed repeatedly throughout the Syrian crisis – i.e. the alleged deployment of chemical weapons that will be blamed on the Syrian government in order to justify more airstrikes and missiles against the Syrian government and in defense of terrorist elements backed by the United States, Britain, and France.

Signs are now pointing toward the possibility that there is yet another chemical weapons propaganda ploy being set up in Syria in much the same way as the recent and now-debunked Douma chemical attacks were created and propagated throughout Western media.

Russian outlet Sputnik International, citing an unnamed source, has reported that,

"US security services are planning provocations with the use of prohibited substances in Syria. The operation is led by a former militant of the Islamic State *[Daesh], Mishan Idris Hamash. The aim is to stage a chemical attack against civilians to be further spread in the media," the source told Sputnik.

According to the source, the preparations began on April 23. The civilians are being shipped to a territory near Jafra oil field to participate in a staged filming of an attack scene.

Although based on one source, it should be noted that France is now making statements similar to those it made in the run-up to the staged Douma chemical weapons attack where it announced that if Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons, France would take action.

"The goal of the strike against Syria was to prevent Bashar Assad from repeating such attack. If this happens, we can consider the possibility of repeated strikes," French Defense Minister Florence Parley said.

2005: CNN Host Christiane Amanpour Tells Assad US Looking For New Syrian Leader, Supporting "Opposition," Preparing Coup

By now, it is common knowledge among researchers and journalists focused on the Syrian crisis that the plan to destroy the Syrian government was not merely hatched in 2011 at the beginning of the physical crisis itself, but that it was part of a much older plan to eliminate all resistance to the world finance oligarchy. Indeed, not only did the plan go back further than 2011, its beginnings could be seen going all the way back to the 1980s.

One window into the coming destabilization came two years after the United States had invaded and destroyed Iraq for the same reason. Notoriously pro-war propagandist Christiane Amanpour sat down for an interview with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, during the course of which she alluded to the fact that the United States was planning on his overthrow.

CA: Mr. President, you know the rhetoric of “regime change” is headed towards you from the United States. They are actively looking for a new Syrian leader. They’re granting visas and visits to Syrian opposition politicians. They’re talking about isolating you diplomatically and perhaps a coup de’ tat, or your regime crumbling. What are you thinking about that?

BA: I feel very confident, for one reason. Because I was made in Syria. I wasn’t made in the United States. So I’m not worried. This is [a] Syrian decision. It should be made by the Syrian people. Nobody else in this world. So, we don’t discuss it in Syria.

CA: What would happen, do you think, if there was an alternative to you? Who is the alternative to you?

BA: It could be any Syrian. Any national Syrian. And we have a lot. I’m not the only person who’s eligible to be President. We have a lot of Syrians. So we don’t have any problem about that. But no Syrian would be able to be President if he’s made anywhere outside our borders. This is a Syrian principle. [emphasis added]

Australian Government and Press Ignore “Hands Off Syria” Anti-War Rally In Melbourne

As the Australian government continues to support the war on Syria and the secular government of Bashar al-Assad, even supporting America's recent missile strikes on Syria in defense of al-Qaeda, it is proving that while it may be listening to big business, the United States, and the international Deep State, it is not listening to the very people it is claiming that it wants to defend.

Indeed, in the lead-up to the American strikes, Australia joined in with its other imperialist counterparts to demand sympathy for the alleged victims of an alleged chemical weapons attack that allegedly took place. Bombing of course was conducted before the OPCW inspectors could enter Douma but the cries from governments were of the same narrative that has been played for the last seven years - Assad is killing his own people and the world needs to stop him.

The narrative suggests that the Syrian people are being slaughtered en masse by Assad (for reasons never fully explained by the mainstream media) and that all Syrians are terrified of the government, cheering on the moderate cannibals of America's expeditionary revolution forces. But one trip to Syria will prove that narrative wrong at least, since traveling through the country one will find overwhelming support for the Syrian government. Indeed, when I traveled to Syria in 2017, I did not meet one person who supported the terrorists and everyone I spoke to supported the Syrian government, even those who had disagreements with the government prior to the war. For them, it is not even a choice of which side is better, it is a choice between death and survival. The Syrian government and, yes, Bashar al-Assad himself, represent survival, normalcy, and secularism. America's terrorists represent death, Sharia law, and unimaginable savagery.

This is the same experience others have had when traveling to Syria as well. I highly recommend reading the work of Vanessa Beeely, Patrick Henningsen, Eva Bartlett, Janice Kortkamp, Pearson Sharp, and Tim Anderson for starters.

Nevertheless, when traveling to Syria and speaking to Syrians, Western mainstream media consistently claim that the Syrians independent media journalists speak to are "afraid of being killed by Assad" or that the journalists themselves are being accompanied by security forces who force the civilians to repeat the government line. This is not the case at all as I myself was free to roam the streets of each city I visited at any hour, unaccompanied, and speak to anyone I wished to speak to. Still, they all said the same thing.

The Paradox Of War In A 'Wonderful World' - Syria Continues To Fight, Live, And Love

Janice Kortkamp
May 2, 2018

"Why Janice, why? Why are they doing this to us?"asked my dear friend, a Syrian mother whose son died in the Syrian Army fighting against terrorists. She has two other sons, both in the Army.

As we were speaking together a young lady approached us. She'd heard our conversation and wanted to share her story. She comes from a Christian village near Idlib which has been under constant threat and attack by terrorist groups directly supported by the US. I will be researching the tragedies suffered there to share in another post.

Also there was another young lady celebrating her 22nd birthday. My friend and I offered her congratulations and then shared her birthday cake. She also came over for a chat. She studies in university in Lebanon but asked as her birthday gift to come back to Damascus where she hadn't been since before the war.

"Why now?" I asked though I knew the answer. Because the mortars and rockets, car and suicide bombs, kidnappings etc have stopped since the victories over the terrorist groups in eastern Ghouta/Douma.

Terrorist groups, yes again, called "moderates" and directly supported by the US and allies.

For seven years Damascus has been so terribly dangerous when before the war Syria was the fifth safest country in the world according to Gallup polls.

Obama's "moderates" from the very beginning rampaged through the beautiful city. Gangs kidnapped people at random for money. The US backed Free Syrian Army would just go into people's homes and at gunpoint force them to leave then took up residence. They in turn would often get forced out by the Syrian Army but the fleeing terrorists would first plant booby trap bombs in refrigerators and other items in hopes to massacre the returning home owners. Suicide and car bombings were common like the shrapnel-filled mortars and rockets that hit the city routinely.

The Only Legitimate US Policy on Syria Would Be Complete Withdrawal - Author

Sputnik International
April 18, 2018
Brandon Turbeville Interview with Sputnik International

Washington is determined to maintain control over northern Syria, currently held by the US-backed Kurdish militia. Donald Trump is seeking to shift the burden of military responsibility onto Arab states, which means that the US occupation of Syrian territories will continue, American author Brandon Turbeville has told Sputnik.
"The only legitimate Syria policy on the part of the United States is the immediate and complete withdrawal of all military forces from Syria, as well as an immediate end to the funding, training, and directing any and all terrorists or so-called 'opposition forces' in the country," Brandon Turbeville, the author of seven books, one of them being "The Road To Damascus: The Anglo-American Assault on Syria," told Sputnik.

On March 29, US President Donald Trump dropped the hint about the withdrawal "very soon" of US troops from Syria. Following the US-led coalition's April 14 joint strike on Syria, the White House reiterated Trump's pledge in response to French President Emmanuel Macron's assumption that he had managed to convince his American counterpart to stay in the region.
However, the Wall Street Journal reported on April 16, that a US official had requested funding and military resources from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates to maintain Syria's security once Daesh (ISIS/ISIL)* is completely defeated.

Earlier, during an April 3 summit with the leaders of the Baltic States, the US President had suggested that Washington could continue its military presence in Syria if the Gulf States provide necessary funding.

"Saudi Arabia is very interested in our decision, and I said, 'Well, you know, you want us to stay, maybe you're going to have to pay'," Trump said, commenting on his decision to pull out of the region.

In the latest demonstration that free access to marijuana in a supposedly free society is an idea whose time has come, none other than CNN’s Sanjay Gupta, the notoriously biased news organization’s Chief Medical Correspondent, has written an op-ed in the form of an open letter to US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, asking that Sessions to open his mind to the fact that marijuana is a powerful medicine and possible tool for easing the opioid epidemic.

Gupta acknowledged his own ignorance related to medical marijuana only a few short years ago and wrote of how he came to change his mind. Gupta wrote of the number of stories and cases he personally witnessed where marijuana provided relief to a number of health problems as well as growing evidence that marijuana could be one more solution to the opioid crisis.

In his article, “Dr. Sanjay Gupta To Jeff Sessions: Medical Marijuana Could Save Many Addicted To Opioids,” Gupta writes,

Not only can cannabis work for a variety of conditions such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and pain, sometimes, it is the only thing that works. I changed my mind, and I am certain you can, as well. It is time for safe and regulated medical marijuana to be made available nationally. I realize this is an unconventional way to reach you, but your office declined numerous requests for an interview, and as a journalist, a doctor and a citizen, I felt it imperative to make sure you had access to our findings. 
Mr. Sessions, there is an added urgency, as we are in the middle of a deadly opioid epidemic that has been described as the worst self-inflicted epidemic in the history of our country.

Is America's Policy In Syria In America's Interests Or Just Some Americans' Interests?

Abdo Haddad
April 24, 2018

Is it about America’s Interests or some American’s interest?

The military operation launched by the United States, France and Britain against Syria has achieved little to no gains unlike what was promoted by the United States and the West. The message that the United States and its allies intended to send to Syria was so weak that leaders in Washington, Paris and London had better spend money on their countries’ infrastructure or poverty issues. Perhaps the entire scene reflects what many now realize: America does not really have a Syrian strategy.

Is the Syrian conflict beyond the capacity of American officials and analysts, and their inability to have an edge since the outbreak of the crisis? This requires an understanding of a broader and yet unresolved debate about the role of the United States in the region and the world.

The understanding within the US political community, including US officials, analysts in Washington, opinion writers, and journalists around Syria for the past seven years, is generally below standard, unknown or incomprehensible in regards US interests and foreign policy that must be adopted.

At this historic moment, USA are still not sure what they want or do not know what is important for them, but they are bound to make consensus decisions. Some go so far as to say that Americans are no longer sure whether their interests are still possible or realistic given the high cost - morally and financially - with the emergence of new forces competing for global leadership.

The Truth About The Syria Chemical Attacks - No Evidence of Assad Chem Weapons, Western False Flag Seems Likely

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
April 23, 2018

As the world awaits the OPCW inspectors scheduled to enter Douma and present their findings regarding the alleged chemical weapons attacks there, most researchers and discerning onlookers already have a pretty good idea of what took place. Despite the crowing of Western countries regarding their yet to be disclosed “proof” that the Syrian government launched chemical weapons against civilians in Douma, there has been not one shred of evidence to back them up. Indeed, what evidence does exist seems to prove only that the attack was staged.

Below are a number of reasons that the claims made by the United States, Britain, and Frances are completely false:

The Lack Of Western Evidence

Despite both the United States and France claiming to have clear evidence that the Syrian government used chemical weapons on the Syrian people, with French President Macron stating that he had undeniable “proof,” not one shred of evidence has been presented to their respective populations or even the United Nations, whose own standard for “proof” is a bar set rather low to say the least. Theresa May of Britain stated that her cabinet agreed it was “highly likely” Assad used chemical weapons.

At the end of the day, the undeniable “proof” was nothing more than social media posts, grainy videos, and staged photographs released by terrorist fighters in Douma and the notorious Nusra Front propaganda organization known as the White Helmets. Even the U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis admitted there was no evidence that the Syrian government used chemical weapons. In testimony to Congress, Mattis stated “I believe there was a chemical attack and we’re looking for the actual evidence.” He added, “There have been a number of these attacks. In many cases as you know, we don’t have troops, we’re not engaged on the ground there so I cannot tell you we had evidence even though we certainly had a lot of media and social media indicators that either chlorine or sarin were used.

In other words, the United States, Britain, and France launched an attack on a sovereign nation in service of jihadists terrorists which may very well have caused world war three all on the basis of facebook posts and twitter feeds. However, there is much more to the story as the entire premise of the official narrative coming out of Washington rests on the premise that the West was acting in defense of civilians killed with chemical weapons. In order for the narrative to be true, the Syrian government would have had to use chemical weapons against civilians, the terrorists would have had to present accurate facts, and the West would have to care for the fate of civilians.

New research in both Europe and the United States has demonstrated yet another disturbing link between insecticides known as neonicotinoids and their adverse effects on honey bees. Prior to the research, which was conducted at the University of Buenos Aires by Carolina Gonalons and Walter M. Farina, it was already widely known that chemicals like Glyphosate, a ubiquitous herbicide, is at least partly responsible for the decline in the bee population.

The new research decided to examine the effects of “field-realistic concentrations” of common farm chemicals on young worker bees.

As Sustainable Pulse writes,

The role of worker bees is related to age. Young worker bees perform vital tasks such nest maintenance and care of the eggs and pupae. Later in life they become field or forager bees, and gather nectar and pollen for the colony. These skills involve behavioural plasticity, memory and discernment, so the Goñalons and Farina believe the young bees serve as important bioindicators to study the effects of these chemicals on colony health.

The researchers measured the effect of glyphosate and neonicotinoids on bees by exposing them to a variety of concentrations of the chemicals.

Since the concentration of the chemicals were too low to kill the bees immediately, the testing method was to train the bees to carry out a variety of tasks, administer the chemical, and test the bees’ performance after various levels of the chemicals had been administered. The responses were assessed at 5,9, and 14 days old.

The bees were given outfitted with “tiny bee-sized harnesses” and trained to respond to various levels of smells and sucrose solution. These responses were measured by a number of different methods, but most antennae movement and extension of mouth parts.

Both of the chemicals had a negative effect on the bees’ olfactory learning and reduced sense of taste.

Ultimately, the paper demonstrated that the neonicotinoids and glyphosate negatively affect memory, smell, and taste in young bees. This is concerning due to the fact that the bees require these senses and skills for foraging. Thus, when young bees become brain damaged, the damage to the colony as a whole does not stop there but extends to the period of time when they are expected to take over the reigns of foraging. Clearly, this double tap poisoning of bees in mass agriculture could be contributing to colony collapse.

Indeed, the authors of the study are also concerned that the damages sustained to the ability to forage could threaten the survival of the bee colony as a whole, particularly at the end of summer.

Reports Claim Syria, Russia Capture British Troops In Douma - UK Gov't Denies

As the battle for East Ghouta began heating up in 2018, a reader wrote to me and suggested that there must be something incredibly important in East Ghouta for the United States and the rest of the “Western” world to react in such a volatile way. If recent reports coming from al-Mayadeen are true, that reader may be proven correct.

According to a report by al-Mayadeen and FARS News, a number of British troops have been captured in Douma. The source sited by al-Mayadeen say the troops are believed to be part of the “international coalition” and a plan to launch a ground assault in Damascus in coordination with the U.S. The report suggests that the US and NATO as well as Jordan and Israel had planned to launch attacks on Syria from several different fronts. However, as the Syrian military began operations to liberate Ghouta, the plan was disrupted.

The news agency claims that, after the Syrian and Russian militaries discovered the plot, the operation to liberate Ghouta was launched.

Sputnik International writes:

The US and Turkey sought to rescue foreign "militants and agents operating for Israel, Jordan and NATO," now trapped in Ghouta, and move them to Idlib, the source says.

The Turkish initiative to help with the evacuation of Nusra Front terrorists from Ghouta has reportedly been a coverup for "special foreign forces that were among the ranks of the Al-Qaeda-affiliated" Nusra front terror organization.
