Obama and U.S. Military Divided Over Syria

Enrique Ferro's insight:

In the real world it appears that the U.S.-backed Syrian rebels are the ones responsible for having used chemical weapons against the Syrian government. It was the Syrian government who initially accused the U.S.-backed rebels of using chemical weapons, and asked the UN to investigate the attack. This triggered the Syrian rebels and later the Obama administration to accuse the Syrian government of the attack.

A very revealing New York Times article quoted U.S.-backed Syrian rebels admitting that the chemical weapons attack took place in a Syrian government controlled territory and that 16 Syrian government soldiers died as a result of the attack, along with 10 civilians plus a hundred more injured. But the rebels later made the absurd claim that the Syrian government accidentally bombed its own military with the chemical weapons.

OpEdNews Article: Article: Ready, Reset, Go! ...to Cold War 2.0 | Global politics | Scoop.it
The real, no-holds-barred reason for the Empire of Chaos's obsessive economic war on Russia is that Moscow, as a BRICS member, alongside especially China and Brazil, is at the leading edge of emerging powers challenging the global financial/political (dis)order -- wallowing in the mire of casino capitalism -- dictated by the Empire of Chaos.

«Их там просто убьют»: женщины в Киеве не дали автобусу с солдатами уехать в зону военной операции

«Их там просто убьют»: женщины в Киеве не дали автобусу с солдатами уехать в зону военной операции | Global politics | Scoop.it
Женщины в Киеве перегородили дорогу автобусу с активистами самообороны Майдана, которые собирались выехать в район проведения силовой операции. Солдаты не готовы воевать, у них нет экипировки, их используют практически как «пушечное мясо», уверены протестующие. Таких протестов с каждым днём на Украине становится всё больше.

OpEdNews Article: Article: Who Shot Down MH17 over Ukraine? | Global politics | Scoop.it
The same day that Israeli tanks crossed into Gaza, to continue killing civilians and the occasional Hamas fighter, MSNBC decided to ignore the Israeli invasion in favor of wall-to-wall coverage of the presumed shoot-down of Malaysian Airliner MH17 over eastern Ukraine. Why would MSNBC make a choice that looks so much like propaganda?

One hundred and ten bombing raids, a military incursion, 17 killings, mass arrests -- all before Hamas fired a single rocket. This is what Obama -- and every single member of the United States Senate -- call an "unprovoked attack." They say it with a straight face -- nay, with long, somber, pious faces -- but they know it's a lie.

OpEdNews Quicklink: Armed robbery in Gaza - Israel, US, UK carve up the spoils of Palestine's stolen gas | Global politics | Scoop.it
Israel desperately covets Gaza's gas as a 'cheap stop-gap' yielding revenues of $6-7 billion a year, writes Nafeez Ahmed. The UK's BG and the US's Noble Energy are lined up to do the dirty work - but first Hamas must be 'uprooted' from Gaza, and Fatah bullied into cutting off its talks with Russia's Gazprom.

Чуркин: Попытка украинских военных контролировать место крушения Boeing нарушит резолюцию ООН | Global politics | Scoop.it
Попытка украинских военных взять под контроль место крушения Boeing 777 «Малайзийских авиалиний» будет нарушением резолюции 2166 Совета Безопасности ООН, заявил сегодня журналистам постоянный представитель РФ при всемирной организации Виталий Чуркин.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Он обратил внимание журналистов на то, что после телефонного разговора вице-президента США Джо Байдена с украинским президентом Петром Порошенко «антитеррористическая» операция ужесточилась - как раз в тот момент, когда международные эксперты пытаются попасть на место крушения Boeing 777. Он напомнил, что американская сторона так и не ответила на 28 вопросов от Росавиации.
