Illegal Attack on Syria Motivations Exposed

The timing of President Obama’s recent proclamation that he possesses conclusive evidence that the Syrian Government is directly responsible for the recent chemical attack on the Sryian opposition is no accident.

Here’s why.

syria-attackThe following reasons for the US-UK-France threats to launch unlawful ‘punitive’ airstrikes against the Syrian military are self evident.  As follows:

1) Every Syrian military target has been chosen with the explicit intention of degrading select Syrian military assets so as to slow down their successful ground war against the rebel opposition. The Syrian military has been enjoying remarkable success of late and the Western powers could no longer sit idle on the sidelines. The rebels’ only hope for a reversal was to receive direct military intervention from the West.

2) The US was chosen to issue the threats using Obama as the megaphone, even in the absence of the official UN chemical weapons report, because only the US political process has been so manipulated (by you know who?) to permit such a war crime to be committed in broad daylight. As the UK Parliament has well demonstrated, the British can no longer be bamboozled into another illegal war based on false accusations. The British people know that they were lied to in the run-up to the Iraq war, and they now know that it was the West which colluded with the Syrian rebels to frame the Assad Administration for the alleged chemical weapon war crime.

3) Obama himself knew that he was being set up to lay down the red line that would not be crossed without consequence for the Syrian Government. He is simply playing the role of war criminal by launching a premeditated attack on a sovereign nation without a Congressional declaration of war. To commit such an unprovoked act of war based on a deliberate false flag operation coordinated by the US et al. makes his conduct as Commander-in-Chief all the more complicit.

4) The threats of war being made against Bashar Assad do constitute a war crime by the three issuing nations of the US, UK and France. However, they are being issued by the respective prime ministers and president for specific reasons in spite of the profound damage to their reputations. Nevertheless, such threats to hit military targets have forced the Assad regime to re-arrange many of their well placed yet scarce military assets completely out of harm’s way. In this way the rebels will be able to jump start a new offensive against the government forces.  It is planned that such airstrikes, although utterly unlawful, will also serve to throw a logistical wrench in the Syrian military machinery.

5) By declaring an intention to conduct an aggressive military assault on a sovereign nation, the Western powers are quite deliberately setting an extremely dangerous but purposeful precedent. They are putting the entire community of nations on notice that any country – or rather head of state – which does not give in to their demands, will eventually be set up to be a war criminal in the eyes of the world. Just as Saddam Hussein was constantly labeled a genocidal war criminal for gassing the Kurds, now Bashar Assad is being falsely accused of using chemical weapons against his own people. In other words, the message being delivered is that all ‘incorrigible’ leaders will be painted up as a Lil’ Hitler in the future.


6) Of course, we see that the nation of Israel has been unusually quiet through this whole “international incident” and sordid affair. Everyone knows that when their is tumult in the Middle East, Israel will always takes advantage of the chaos to perpetrate more criminal land grabs. They will also use such distractions to operate covertly in the countries under assault to further undermine their governments, infiltrate their armed services, and carry out black ops against prime targets.

7) Everyone knows by now that the road to Iran for the Chickenhawks leads straight through Syria, because of the access the western navies will enjoy on the Mediterranean. Turkey is not so keen to get involved in a war against Iran. Nor is Jordan … or Iraq … or Pakistan … or Afghanistan. Therefore, controlling Syrian airspace, if things ever progress that far, can be justified by the West no matter what the cost. The following map shows just how far the West is willing to go to surround and isolate Iran.  It should also be noted that the recent coup d’etat in Egypt was perfectly timed and orchestrated before this false flag operation in Syria so as to withdraw the support which Morsi was giving to Iran.  Egypt was completely neutralized after Morsi was deposed as the West had planned.

These are just a few of the reasons for the blatant bellicosity being demonstrated by the Anglo-American juggernaut. It is not the people of the USA and UK and France who are calling for revenge against Assad. It is the criminal governments who have unlawfully arrogated power unto themselves to commit unprovoked acts of war on a whim, which are virtually always based on false flag operations. The following headlines further illustrate what a complete sham their call for military attacks on Syria has been based upon.

It is also important to point out that the last use of chemical weapons during the Syrian civil war was also found out to be perpetrated by the Al Qaeda rebels.  In their extreme desperation to bolster their movement to overthrow Assad, the rebels have truly come to understand the magic formula to triggering the necessary response by the main NATO military powers. And so they have now pulled the trigger.

    Good piece enjoyed it very much

  2. Randa says:

    Count UK in on this as well, even though Cameron made a good show of rejecting participation. Obama is their clone, this monster is far from being human.

    Summary: The chemical weapons "attack" by Assad was actually an accident on the part of a group of rebels who had been supplied with chemical weapons, but no training, by Saudi Arabia.

    *If* the report turns out to be accurate it would cast a huge shadow over the "intelligence" on which British Prime Minister Cameron's Commons performance was based, in the debate on whether Britain should join in the fun. I think it unlikely that UK Intelligence would be unaware of Saudi intentions, much less the CIA (who would have supplied Saudi with the weapons).

      The following are the Al Qaeda Rebels of the Brotherhood that Obama is supporting for Morsi. The Egyptian people spoke when they removed Morsi and put Assad in charge. NOTE: The Al Qaeda Rebel Brotherhood are our enemies and were given aid and comfort by Obama.

      So will our American military will say we can’t afford a war to try to save Obama’s face?

      Syrian rebels of Al Qaeda Brotherhood (those who Obama sides with) in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta have admitted to Associated Press correspondent Dale Gavlak that they were responsible for last week’s chemical weapons incident which western powers have blamed on Bashar Al-Assad’s forces, revealing that the casualties were the result of an accident caused by rebels mishandling chemical weapons provided to them by Saudi Arabia.

        OK, but you're just repeating the stuff in my original link, except via Infowars, which isn't the best site to quote if you want people to take you seriously.

    Quite excellent analysis of the whole conspiratorial plot.
    Surely the author knows that Russia will also be deprived
    of their only naval base on the Mediterranean at Tartus
    should the West prevail in Syria.
    Such an outcome is completely unacceptable to the Russians
    as it should be.

  6. Nick Roerich says:

    If this highly insightful breakdown was sent to every member of Congress, they would think twice about authorizing airstrikes.
    Who ever wants to enable a war criminal wannabe like Obama?
    Who would want to bear the responsibility of killing so many innocent Syrians … who have done nothing except be in the wrong place at the wrong time?!?!

    • fenwick says:

      That's a nice sentiment but those in Congress are IN Congress to line their own pockets & live above the Law. Sans half a dozen good people, Congressional members are simply presidential-puppet wanna-bees.

      Congress, Senators, etc, for the most part are well aware of what's happening. They are afraid of those in power, turning them into a grease-spot-memory, like those before them that have spoke out & were eliminated.

      I pray to God that your sentiment comes true, but I don't hold out much hope of that happening anytime soon.

  7. Truth Seeker says:

    As this post points out with excellent understanding, Obama, Cameron and Hollande should all be impeached for threatening a sovereign nation with military aggression without evidence that has been evaluated to be legitimate, not fabricated as is probably the case.

    These NATO countries can no longer be trusted to tell the truth about anything. They are all bought by a power much higher than puppets like these three jokers. Except that their deception and dissembling is nothing to laugh at. People will die because of the false flags they have planted on Syrian soil.

    That such a ruse is accepted by so many is truly sad. It especially presents a VERY disturbing commentary on the state of the political class around the world. Only Putin has really stood up and weighed in on the matter — a matter of life and death for many.

  8. Billy Roberts says:

    Yes, you nailed it, Michael!

    This is about fabricating a pretext to “degrade select Syrian military assets” so as to reverse the momentum of this civil war.
    The rebels have been taking a continuous beating, and their NATO backers can’t stand watching.
    So, they do a false flag … case closed.

  9. Michael Thomas says:

    I did leave out a few key geopolitical issues in this article which loom large on the Syrian horizon:

    • Russia will not give up its only naval base in the Mediterranean while the Western powers want it gone yesterday

    • Syria does provide some excellent geography for oil and gas conduits which could ultimately benefit Israel if a regime change is successful

    • Israel is also not happy about sharing so much of its northern border with such unfriendly states. Both Lebanon and Syria will pose existential threats as long as Israel oppresses the Palestinians, steals their land, and terrorizes the entire Middle East with their relentless false flag operations.

    • Bashar Assad is not only a physician; he's also an Alawite.
    "The Alawites, also known as Alawis (ʿAlawīyyah Arabic: علوية‎) are a prominent mystical religious group centered in Syria who follow a branch of the Twelver school of Shia Islam." (Per Wikipedia)
    So, you can imagine the problems posed by a spiritually oriented Shia leader who truly has the best interest of his people at heart. Those are problems, of course, only to the controllers of the NWO.

    • "It is the criminal governments who have unlawfully arrogated power unto themselves to commit unprovoked acts of war on a whim"
      this is the new world order system rising…"and the whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, "Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?" Revelation 13:3-4

    This assessment is spot on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    SYRIA WANTS WAR and we must show them who is the more powerful country! who has more sympathy for our people! we will show them not to mess with us!
