Yesterday I wrote about how the Pentagon deliberately decimated the cease-fire agreement on the 6th and 8th day of the accord so they wouldn’t have to hand over detailed information about the locations of our “ISIS” destabilization teams in Syria.
The day before that I wrote about what “barrel bombs” really are and who most likely used them against the UN aid convoy. Here’s a little hint: they aren’t dropped from Syrian army helicopters.
This is a member of the Free Syrian Army, from the Tawhid Brigade to be more specific. He is working on a homemade mortar. This is what is called a “barrel bomb” in our main stream media
Today on Morning Joe, after Mika went ballistic calling Donald Trump a racist (again) and accusing him of eating black babies for breakfast, the discussion among Joe’s gaggle of neoliberal yesmen turned to why Barack Obama hasn’t bombed the whole of the Syrian government and their planes and invaded the country due to Assad “using chemical weapons against his own people and bombing the UN aid convoy from the air”
I guess the bloviating warmongers on MSNBC’s morning “news” program think their audience is ignorant. An MIT study destroyed Obama’s first “redline” chemical weapons story back in 2014. That’s why Obama didn’t act on it back then. It was a lie and it was exposed as a lie. Mother Agnes Mariam de la Croix exposed the East Ghouta chemical weapons attacks being blamed on Assad as a lie as well. The gig was up. When the intellectuals and the church as well expose your false flag chemical weapons attacks for what they are, it’s kinda hard to motivate a large percentage of the population to engage in yet another illegal war of aggression based on more lies.
As Morning Joe’s propaganda relates to the new UN study about the use of chemical weapons in Syria, once again, the truth is not quite as cut and dry as those who want us to bomb another country indiscriminately would have you believe:
“This week the full report was finally released, and as it turns out – Russia’s Churkin was 100% correct. The report, as with many other US-led attempts to fabricate cases of weapons of mass destruction against governments it wishes to depose, seems at the very least to be sexed-up, and at most – a completely fraudulent assessment of events on the ground in Syria. The only real conclusive findings in this report point to ISIS using sulfur mustard gas in Syria” 21st Century Wire
Specifically, Joe Scarborough was asking the spokesman for the State Department why Obama hasn’t declared war against Assad because, according to Joe, “he is committing genocide by “using chlorine bombs against its own people.”
To this argument, the State Department pitchman agreed with Joe about Assad using chlorine bombs against his own people but said they wanted Russia to stop the violence instead. Sec. Kerry said Assad was “definitely” using “barrel bombs” loaded with chlorine gas on his own people.
To that I present an article out of al Jazeera, hardly a neocon publication, and they say, yes indeed, Assad drops “barrel bombs” filled with chemical weapons on his own people and they even included an investigator’s photo of the evidence:
The Syrian government has been accused of using toxic chemicals in a number of barrel bomb attacks in Idlib governorate.
Allow me to refresh your memory:
That ladies and gentlemen, is not a weapon dropped by Assad forces in Syria, but rather, it is a mortar fired from a Free Syrian Army “hell cannon” and yes, it contained chemical weapons. Go here to see how they make these.
The chemical weapons story, like the Iraqi WMDs before it, is total bunk. Debunked, total bunk.
Then, after screeching about that reason to attack a sovereign state that has done nothing to us, the Morning Joe warmongering echo chamber decided to bump-up the volume on on the propaganda level and they started saying it was a proven fact that Russia attacked the UN aid convoy on Monday.
Again, the State Department mouthpiece didn’t object too much, only to say that there were “only” Russian and Syrian aircraft in the area… so… he put his hands up in the air as if too say “draw your own conclusions”. He then did go on too say he didn’t want to comment on responsibility as of yet because he was waiting… for the evidence.
This was enough for Mika and Joe pro-war morning think tank though.
Interestingly enough, it’s apparently not enough evidence for an eye witness, Wael al Malas of the Syrian branch of the Red Crescent who has a slightly different opinion:
“There is no evidence that it was an airstrike of either Russian or Syrian aviation on the humanitarian convoy in Syria. On the contrary, everything points to it being the militants of the terrorist organizations who exploded and set on fire the trucks of the convoy,” Wael al Malas, the representative of the Syrian branch of the Red Crescent
Also it seems the UN isn’t quite so convinced about the whole “it had to be an airstrike” theory promoted by the State Department and Morning Blo-hards:
“The U.N. in Syria was informed of the attacks as they unfolded. Despite our efforts and communications with parties to the conflict, further attacks continued throughout the night, hampering efforts to reach and attend to the wounded,” the statement by the coordinators, Massimo Diana and Kevin Kennedy, said.
An original version of the statement referred to “air strikes” rather than “attacks”, but it was amended within minutes.
“The explanation is that we are not in a position to determine whether these were in fact air strikes. We are in a position to say that the convoy was attacked,” said Jens Laerke, U.N. humanitarian spokesman in Geneva.
So how about that? A Red Crescent eye witness and the U.N. humanitarian spokesman in Geneva both seem to suggest it’s a little early to be definitively stating Vladamir Putin personally flew a plane into Syrian airspace and bombed a UN aid convoy for no apparent reason while Mika the Self-Righteous and Joe the Blamer are screaming for Obama to send your kids and parents and siblings over to Syria to take on their army and the Iranians and the Russians and possibly the Chinese.
Now don’t forget, the first story, the first official story, was that Assad dropped “barrel bombs” on the convoy out the windows of helicopters. And we remember what “barrel bombs” are, right?
It began with barrel bombs, continued with rockets and ended with the dead. Both Syrian government and Russian aircraft participated in an attack on U.N.-backed aid convoy over the course of three hours near the Syrian city of Aleppo on Monday night, according to a rescue worker who responded to the scene.
“It was like a circle of madness, a circle of hell,” says Ammar al-Selmo, head of the local branch of the Syrian Civil Defense, also known as the White Helmets, describing the bombardment of the area on Monday night TIME
Barrel bombs?! Haven’t we discussed that already? Ah yeah, we did.
As some of you may know, the White Helmets are not a humanitarian organization. They are the propaganda arm of the regime change operation, fully funded by the US and Britain, and fully onboard with the vicious crimes committed by al Nusra and others.
The White Helmets have received over $ 40 million in funding from the US Government [USAID] and the UK Foreign Office despite their claims of being “fiercely independent and accepts no money from governments, corporations or anyone directly involved in the Syrian conflict”
The UK and US governments are involved in the illegal war against Syria and are intent upon “regime change” in Syria, therefore they are “directly involved in the conflict”.
The White Helmets claim to be “unarmed and neutral” while embedded in areas occupied solely by Al Nusra [Al Qaeda] and ISIS. They are armed. They have been photographed and filmed supporting Al Nusra/Al Qaeda who are foreign mercenaries massacring the Syrian people. Change.org petition
That’s the White Helmets. That’s the source of the baseless claims against Assad and Putin regarding the attack on the UN aid convoy. As I pointed out yesterday, more likely, it was carried out by our destabilization contractors in Syria in order to prevent the cease fire agreement from reaching the critical eighth day during which the Pentagon would have to release information they hold regarding “ISIS” to the Syrians and the Russians and as you may already know… they have a good deal of reason for not wanting to do that.
I was hoping this kind of breathless warmongering would have ended back when Judith Miller of the New York Times was caught taking her leads from warmonger Cheney and repeating them in her articles for the paper so Cheney could then repeat them in public and say “Look. Even the liberal New York Times says this”
Mika and Joe and their cabal of breathless warmongers would make Judith proud, don’t you think? In fact, I hope they offer her a job. Tom Kiely told me she has a show on Fox News these days. Fitting right?
I couldn’t watch anymore of Morning Joe. It started giving me cancer of the soul as they babbled on and on about “racist” Donald Trump raping little black school girls and Vladamir Putin hacking our precious democracy. When they got to the “blame Russia for for everything our contractors do in Syria” part I threw up all over my coffee table and threw the TV out the window. I’m better off for it.
Unfortunately most folks don’t have enough time in the morning to actually think about the bullshit coming out of their yellow journalist mouths and their little poisonous talking points are probably being echoed around a hundred thousand water stations as we speak.
But the good news is, there are still enough of us out here to keep track of their vicious, cowardly, sycophantic antics and in the end, they will be known for actions, just like Judith Miller eventually was. The truth will out as they say. The truth will out.
And for the record, is it just me or does the new American Horror Story 6 suck the big one?
Have a great day folks. Gotta go clean up the coffee table.
Please help keep us up and running if you can. Speaking truth ABOUT power since 2007
