When Obama decided to submit to congressional decision regarding an attack on Syria, his facial demeanor mirrored what was going on inside the man. With relaxed assurance, the little grim of complacency in his face was telling the world that he had nothing to worry, and that congressional triumph was his, guaranteed.
Sure enough, despite the unanimous American public opinion against the war in Syria, one by one, the so-called Republican machine could “see” the danger the Assad regime was... for whom, actually?
Indeed, all those who are arguing for the removal of President Assad have but one option left as his successor: The al-Qaeda terror-waging terrorists.
Who has been backing those terrorists? The answer to this key question, shall enlighten the American and Western public about the hidden alliances and pacts from the so-called “American” Administration, in light of recent information being unveiled during the last week by the international press.
The eyes of westerners can hardly see through the Muslim Middle East conundrum and even less, understand the the double speak, the existence of taqqiya or right to distort the truth as best works for the advancement of Muslim world domination, which are elements hard to grab by the rather straightforward occidental mind.
Note that while Iran backs President Assad, their neighbors, the Gulf states, are against Assad, despite their geographic proximity to Iran. Assad himself, is against the Muslim Brotherhood. And as is common knowledge, the Muslim Brotherhood and Obama are against General Sisi.
That said, the Gulf states are pro-Sisi and as mentioned above, they are against Assad, all this meaning that are against the Muslim Brotherhood -thus also against Obama.
Iran is pro-Hamas, but Hamas is backing the Muslim Brotherhood. And, while Obama is backing the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas is against the U.S.
But, despite all that, the Gulf states are pro U.S. and so much so, that royal families in the area have U.S. visas of the maximum of 10-years. And, to confuse a tad more, the Gulf States are against Lebanon, President Assad’s neighbors.
Turkey is with the Gulf States against Assad. However, Turkey is pro-Muslim Brotherhood (thus Erdogan solid friendship with Obama,) and therefore against General Sisi, who is backed by the Gulf States, as mentioned above.
About the Muslim Brotherhood, recently it is being said that they are backed by Qatar, but we know they have also been backed and financed by Saudi Arabia, where at one point, for instance, Huma Abedin’s mother, Saleeha Mahmoud Abedin lived. She is the influential founding member of the pro-sharia Muslim Sisterhood, composed of the wives of some of the highest-ranking leaders in the Muslim Brotherhood.
Confusing but enlightening.
The Saudi Minister of Foreign Affairs, Prince Saud al-Faisal, has been hard at work behind the scenes in the last two weeks.
The French press announced that “Saudi Arabia is trying to oust Bashar al-Assad.” Though officially a meeting between al-Faisal and President Hollande was about “unifying positions with our French friends,” sources confirmed that the Saudi was actually reprimanding France. “Syria is being completely destroyed and we don’t hear anything from the International community,” said the prince to the Hollande. “We, Saudis, are not going to forget these positions if they remain the same,” threatened al-Faisal.
Perceiving a void in power from America and the West, the Saudis have began putting pressure in the situation in Syria, where they are said to have taken over the Syrian National Coalition, main arm of the opposition, and have placed at its head a Saudi favorite, Ahmed Jarba, so marginalizing their rivals, the Muslim Brotherhood, supported by tiny but oil-powerful Qatar.
Saudi King Abdullah... recently appointed [Prince] Bandar bin Sultan as head of the Saudi General Intelligence Directorate; thus in charge of the joint US-Saudi master plan, “after the atrocity committed in Syria,” exact wording posted on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website. Bandar is well known in diplomatic circles, especially because of his 15-year tenure as Saudi ambassador to the US. He also played a key role in the Iran-Contra affair, and had a central role working with President Bush, a family friend, to salvage US-Saudi relations in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks perpetrated by Saudi nationals in the name of Islam.
The experienced diplomat has been pulling strings as sunnis have been watching with dismay the Shiite Hezbollah terrorists fight in Syria. On the other hand, severely mistrusting Turkey, the Saudis are trying to turn Jordan into the real base behind the opposition in the region and have increased their financial backing, especially destined to train the most elite terrorists to fight in Syria.
What Saudis fear most, is the rise of a shiite triangle rising from Iran to Hezbollah, passing by Damascus, with the added disadvantage of a nuclear Iran factually threatening the region.
Prince Bandar, with his carrot and stick approach, did not miss visiting Russia. Although the meeting with President Putin was supposed to be “secret”, the Lebanese daily As-Safir mentions some diplomatic cables: In exchange for Russia’s cooperation, Prince Bandar seems to have assuaged the Russian President’s worries regarding the threat of Islamist chechens during the Winter Olympic Games in Sotchi, in 2014. What about Russian interests in Syria? They do not seem to be threatened anymore. Furthermore, as far as oil and gas are concerned, Riyad would be willing to cooperate with Russia thus eliminating competition especially from tiny but oil-powerful Qatar.
Here, the American Administration is caught lying. again. Obama specifically said that the operation was not about ousting President Assad, but about stopping his alleged chemical attacks. In fact there is the real story behind it.
“Secretary of State John Kerry said at Wednesday’s hearing that Arab counties have offered to pay for the entirety of unseating President Bashar al-Assad if the United States took the lead militarily.”
“With respect to Arab countries offering to bear costs and to assess, the answer is profoundly yes,” Kerry said. “They have. That offer is on the table.”
Trouble is, Kerry did not say “which” Arab countries. It could be either Saudi or Qatar, but with all the coming and going of Saudi leaders, it is most certainly powerful Saudi Arabia.
Asked by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) about how much those countries would contribute, Kerry said they have offered to pay for all of a full invasion.
Trouble is, Ros-Lehtinen did NOT ask “which” Arab countries. Does she not want the American people to know?
“In fact, some of them have said that if the United States is prepared to go do the whole thing the way we’ve done it previously in other places, they’ll carry that cost,” Kerry said. “That’s how dedicated they are at this. That’s not in the cards, and nobody’s talking about it, but they’re talking in serious ways about getting this done.”
Which way? Which other places? Was the American government also paid for doing that? And, who could possibly be so “dedicated” at this, other than the Saudis?
Saudis may be able to pay for the material cost of the war. But no money in the world will pay for the lives of any American sacrificed to their cause.
It is now clear that the Administration has been lying about the real reason for their attack. The world is now also witnessing how Cameron and Hollande have each come out with ‘findings’ of their own about chemicals in Syria. None of them are paying attention to the UN statement that, regardless of the sarin, they will probably never know who committed the crime.
Now that Saudi pressure has been uncovered, public opinion can better understand how hard pressed are these governments to “find” hard evidence that will serve them as excuse to obey the Saudi masters.
But Kerry, he insists:
“Extremist groups make up between 15% and 25% of the rebels fighting Syrian leader Bashar Assad, but moderate forces are growing stronger as a result of support from regional allies, Secretary of State John Kerry told Congress on Wednesday.
It is simply unimaginable that the Secretary of State may have no idea of the atrocities committed by the al-Qaeda faction committing acts of terrorism against the Syrian and against Christian Syrians. So, let’s remind him:
Last June, news brought the savagery al-Qaeda terrorists committed against innocent Christians in Syria. Watch the gruesome footage of “Al Qaeda's anti-Assad Nusra Front’ terrorists beheading a Christian priest as they fight to depose President Assad.
In Saudi Arabia there is no other religion than Islam, there is no other place to worship other than mosques. That’s why their all but official terrorist legionaries must cleanse their paths from any Christians, Baha’is, Jews. They are getting the countries ready for Islam.
Indeed, there are reports that also a Christian village was recently attacked by al-Qaeda terrorists, in Maaloula, Syria, while government forces were trying to defend the people. They are also responsible for many atrocities throughout Syria, as in the village of Tal Abyad where they slaughtered 450 Kurds, 120 of which were innocent children.
The attacks are widespread now. On his part, le french daily Le Monde had this news about al-Qaeda’s “Horror in Syria,” which we can now read and watch, courtesy of a website that copied and embedded the video, as Le Monde’s link is no longer active. Another sign of the global pro-muslim liberal state-controlled media?
In America, Obama’s state media, mainstream media, is simply practicing a silent, untold censorship in flagrant attack against the freedom of the press and against the right of Americans to be unbiasedly informed. Just as the Obama overhaul of gun control did not make the main headlines, the same blackout is happening with the massacres committed by the al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria, simply because these are Obama’s instructions.
The civilized world should fear the rise of Muslim terrorist groups. American intervention in Afghanistan was one of the reasons of Muslim revenge which literally exploded with the attacks of 9/11, destroying the symbol of our powerful economy. The ripples are being felt until now, because instead of persecuting Islamic terrorists, Bush, Obama and their administrations have only given in to pressure from radical Muslim groups and countries, whose actual armed forces can be considered the legions of terrorists they can afford to pay for, especially Saudi Arabia but also Qatar.
Amir Taheri a columnist on pay by the Saudi-controlled daily Asharq Al Awsat, recently wrote in the New York Post: “If Obama orders any kind of military action it would be in response to the “something-must-be-done” chorus and not on the basis of any credible strategy to impact the most deadly civil war the Middle East has witnessed in centuries.” Evidently, the “credible strategy” would be to oust President Assad, but to replace him with whom, precisely? We will not know because that’s how it goes. We never heard of Morsi until we heard of Morsi.
For full disclosure, the London daily Asharq Al Awsat is owned by Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, Chairman of Kingdom Holding Company. Last year, for instance, he made a $27 million contribution to the Palestinian cause.
Pundits as Krauthammer, Ehrenfeld, are demanding that the chemical attacks be stopped. Chemicals are not traditional armaments in the sense of the word. They can be in the shape of powder and transported with total impunity from one place to another.
Attacking Syria on those grounds “could” cause a real chemical attack, like the one Saddam Hussein did against the Kurds in Fallujah, where 5,000 were killed in one single day, and the survivors were left with sequels for many generations thereafter.
Experienced pundits should also wonder “who” will replace Assad if the al-Qaeda monsters win? It will be one of them or one who is like-minded with them. But for sure it will be a pro-sharia Islamist.
Comparing Assad to Hitler and Saddam Hussein is plainly speaking, disproportionate.
Let’s refresh everyone’s memories:
“By genocide, the murder of hostages, reprisal raids, forced labor, "euthanasia," starvation, exposure, medical experiments, and terror bombing, and in the concentration and death camps, the Nazis murdered ... most likely 20,946,000 men, women, handicapped, aged, sick, prisoners of war, forced laborers, camp inmates, critics, homosexuals, Jews, Slavs, Serbs, Germans, Czechs, Italians, Poles, French, Ukrainians, and many others. Among them 1,000,000 were children under eighteen years of age.1 And none of these monstrous figures even include civilian and military combat or war-deaths.”
“":Along with other human rights organizations, The Documental Centre for Human Rights in Iraq has compiled documentation on over 600,000 civilian executions in Iraq. Human Rights Watch reports that in one operation alone, the Anfal, Saddam killed 100,000 Kurdish Iraqis. Another 500,000 are estimated to have died in Saddam's needless war with Iran. Coldly taken as a daily average for the 24 years of Saddam's reign, these numbers give us a horrifying picture of between 70 and 125 civilian deaths per day for every one of Saddam's 8,000-odd days in power".” That is, 560,000 to a million.
The reader can see there is a difference in the three cases.
John McCain’s outburst defending Islamist Muslim terrorists committing their barbaric acts while screaming Allah hu Akbar: “Would you have a problem with an American or Christians saying ‘thank God? Thank God?’ That’s what they’re saying. Come on! Of course they’re Muslims, but they’re moderates and I guarantee you they are moderates.”
“McCain-moderates” cry Allah hu Akbar before they explode themselves or before committing crimes against Christians, or while they butchered one of their own, like President Gaddafi.
McCain’s opinion is against our national security. He and many republicans are systematically turning their back on American interests, it is time to shake their ground and that can only be done by the American people.
This is a very specific conjuncture at which History is going to take a turn for the bad unless the peoples of good will finally rise to defend their military and themselves but also the many hundreds of millions of generations who will follow that will otherwise be condemned to become slaves at the hands of barbarians.
Terrorists are precisely doing what they are supposed to do: Terrorism.
Decent human beings should also be doing what they are supposed to do: Justice.
America should not be waging anyone else's war. It is insulting and out of respect for our American Military, even the thought of it should be reprehensible, abominable.
Americans, the eyes of the world are watching you. Do the right move and now.
SAY NO TO OBAMA’S WAR ON LIBYA.
STOP OBAMA’S TREASON NOW.
May G-d bless America
