Shamed into war? Want to send a message? Call Western Union. A Tomahawk missile is for killing. | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Having leaked to the world, and thus to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a detailed briefing of the coming U.S. air attack on Syria — (1) the source (offshore warships and perhaps a bomber or two), (2) the weapon (cruise missiles), (3) the duration (two or three days), (4) the purpose (punishment, not “regime change”) — perhaps we should be publishing the exact time the bombs will fall, lest we disrupt dinner in Damascus.

So much for the element of surprise. Into his third year of dithering, two years afterdeclaring Assad had to go, one year after drawing — then erasing — his own red line on chemical weapons, Barack Obama has been stirred to action.

Or more accurately, shamed into action. Which is the worst possible reason. A president doesn’t commit soldiers to a war for which he has zero enthusiasm. Nor does one go to war for demonstration purposes.

Want to send a message? Call Western Union. A Tomahawk missile is for killing. A serious instrument of war demands a serious purpose.

Lies Damn Lies and John Kerry Lies by Stephen Lendman | War Is A Crime .org #Syria #US

Lies Damn Lies and John Kerry Lies by Stephen Lendman | War Is A Crime .org #Syria #US | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Once wasn't enough for Kerry. He came. He saw. He lied. He did  twice. Friday was his second Colin Powell moment. It's prelude to lawless aggression.

 

Lies assure more lies. They used to launch wars. All wars are based on lies. Sunshine is the best disinfectant. Truth is the ally of peace. It's the enemy of war. 

 

On August 30, The New York Times headlined "Kerry Becomes Chief Advocate for US Attack," saying:

 

He "laid out the case. (He) mad(e) a closing argument to a skeptical jury."

 

Twenty-four times he lied saying "we know." He "left no doubt that the United States (will) respond with military power."

 

Critics called Hillary Clinton a war goddess. Kerry matches her aggressiveness. Seven months after becoming Secretary of State, he's become Obama's lawless aggression frontman.

March Forward! - "To my fellow sailors: Refuse your orders to attack Syria!" #US #Navy | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

The author is a former Second Class Petty Officer in the U.S. Navy from 2007-20012 and served on the USS Fitzgerald and the USS The Sullivans. He is a March Forward! organizer in Los Angeles and is working to build anti-war actions locally. 

To my fellow sailors, shipmates and service members on active duty,

Many of you are now in the Mediterranean Sea near Syria to be used to carry out strikes against the country. 91 percent of the American public opposes these strikes. The Obama administration has failed to produce the “evidence” it says would justify them. 

Do not be fooled into yet another war based on lies in the Middle East. The events that came to pass in Iraq and Afghanistan go to show that "defending freedom and democracy around the world," as the Sailor's Creed so wrongfully suggests is just a scheme to defend the interests of the rich at our expense. Syria—which is the only remaining country in the Arab World that is independent of Wall Street—is a huge prize for the oil and defense industries. But the billionaires who will profit don’t send their own children. They send us.

Chemical Hallucinations By William Bowles

I think it’s true to say that the days of creating ‘dodgy dossiers‘(pdf)[1] are now over, at least if the latest ‘dodgy report’ is anything to go by. Put out by the UK’s Joint Intelligence Committee, it purports to offer proof that Assad gassed his own people. But aside from the fact that it offers not a shred of proof, it’s also amateurish and clearly put together in a panic.

We…have a limited but growing body of intelligence which supports the judgement that the regime was responsible for the attacks and that they were conducted to help clear the Opposition from strategic parts of Damascus. Some of this intelligence is highly sensitive but you have had access to it all. – UK Joint Intelligence Organisation, 29 August 2013

The ‘intelligence’ report (pdf) is short, barely two pages of text and short not only in size, it’s also short of any real content that backs up the mantra,’Assad, the brutal dictator did it’. Not a single fact is presented. Here are are the relevant ‘proofs’ offered by the JIC’s report:

Syria: military intervention – six key points from Amnesty International [ @Amnesty goes 2 HAIA]

Syria: military intervention – six key points from Amnesty International  [ @Amnesty goes 2 HAIA] | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

In recent days, several governments, including the UK, USA and France have signalled their intention to take military action against the Syrian government, which they hold responsible for the alleged chemical weapons attacks of 21 August. The horrific scenes in the dozens of videos I have watched from those incidents are some of the most haunting I have witnessed during this long and brutal conflict.

So now the spectre of an international armed conflict looms between the Syrian government and foreign military forces.The protection of civilians is a key priority for Amnesty International and that is why we call on all parties who could be involved to comply with international humanitarian law. In particular, those concerned absolutely must:

Refrain from targeting civilians or civilian objects;Refrain from carrying out indiscriminate and disproportionate attacks;Refrain from using weapons which are inherently indiscriminate or otherwise prohibited under international humanitarian law, including cluster munitions;Take all necessary precautions in attacks to spare civilians, including by issuing warnings to civilians wherever feasible, and paying particular heed to the fact that detainees are being held in military bases and facilities;Take precautions to protect civilians under their control against the effect of attacks, including avoiding, to the extent feasible, locating military objectives within or near densely populated areas, and removing, where feasible, civilians from the vicinity of military objectives;Refrain from using civilians to render military objectives immune from attack (that is, as human shields).

Iran can help Obama finesse his legacy by By M K Bhadrakumar

President Barack Obama is setting a new precedent in America's history as an imperialist power. He is all but apologizing before he orders a military attack against a sovereign country with which the United States is not at war and which has not offended America's vital interests and concerns as a sovereign country even remotely.

The Obama administration is publicizing in advance that it is going to be a "limited" military attack by the US on Syria. It is even willing to give advance notice of when the attack can be expected. Who would say Obama is not a humane and considerate statesman? 

By "limited" attack, the Obama administration is indicating it will not directly attack Syria's chemical weapons stockpiles but only



their "delivery systems'', which means the Syrian air force and the army units that are capable of staging a chemical weapon attack. Indeed, someone is in command of any country's armed forces and, therefore, the "command-and-control" systems of the Syrian armed forces will also be targeted.
