Kofi Annan, UN envoy to Syria, has quit his mission by stepping down from his attempts to facilitate peace through his 6 point peace plan.
Mainstream media is blaming Annan for failing to bring peace in an obvious redirection of attention to the actuality of the situation in Syria. While Annan’s stepping down was strategic, this is but a segway to the purpose of the plan to invade Syria as a fake “last resort”. Assad is perfectly aware of this.
Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of State, spending months supposedly pushing peace, while truly threatening all surrounding nations that the US and Israel are gaining ground to have full international backing of their strong desire to strike Syria and remove Assad.
Obama has signed an order giving financial and military support to the FSA. A crafty directive was written, giving the US greater covert “non-lethal” assistance and the State Department “set aside” $25 million for the fake revolutionaries.
The US Treasury has granted release of funds to the FSA through the Syrian Support Group (SSG), a Washington representative of the FSA to conduct financial transactions. The SSG’s “vision” is to “promote the establishment of a free, independent and democratic Syria.” Whenever the ideals of democracy are brought to a foreign nation, through the assistance of the US government, American interests in the resources of that nation are evident.
A report says Turkey has supplied the foreign-sponsored armed groups in Syria with surface-to-air missiles.
According to a July 31 report by the NBC News, nearly two dozen missiles have been delivered to the rebels in Syria by Turkey. The report, however, did not provide details on the exact type of the missiles, also known as MANPADs (man-portable air-defense systems).
Over the past weeks, some anti-Syria regional countries, including Saudi Arabia and Qatar, have been calling for such arms to be sent to the terrorist Free Syrian Army.
On July 22, the Turkish Anadolu Agency reported that Ankara has deployed ground-to-air missiles on its border with Syria.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad told the Turkish Cumhuriyetdaily in an interview in early July that Turkey “has supplied all logistic support to the terrorists who have killed our people.” Continue reading →

Radical Islamists with “British accents” are among the coalition forces looking to topple Bashar Assad, says Jeroen Oerlemans, a photographer who was held hostage in Syria for a week. The UK Foreign Office has launched an investigation.
Oerlemans, a famous Dutch photo journalist, and John Cantlie, another photographer from the UK, were captured by a group of between 30 and 100 anti-Assad fighters when crossing the Syrian border from Turkey last week. They were then blindfolded.
“One of the black jihadists freaked out and shouted: ‘These are journalists and now they will see we are preparing an international jihad in this place.‘” Oerlemans told NRC Handelsblatt newspaper. He said that none of the fighters was Syrian. Continue reading →
[Editor’s note: As you will read in the following article, the 1957 plan to carry out a regime change operation in Syria, is being implemented today. The same process is being adopted to bring Bashar Al Assad down. For those calling us “conspiracy theorists”, this article proves that indeed, there’s always been conspiracies and plots to destabilize non aligned countries which didn’t serve western interests. Thanks in advance for sharing this article. That proves what we’ve been saying & reporting since day 1, what Syrian president himself declared many times, what Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah underlined in his speech yesterday July the 18th as in many other speeches before, there is an international plot against Syria]
Harold Macmillan and President Dwight Eisenhower
Documents show White House and No 10 conspired over oil-fuelled invasion plan
Nearly 50 years before the war in Iraq, Britain and America sought a secretive “regime change” in another Arab country they accused of spreading terror and threatening the west’s oil supplies, by planning the invasion of Syria and the assassination of leading figures.
Newly discovered documents show how in 1957 Harold Macmillan and President Dwight Eisenhower approved a CIA-MI6 plan to stage fake border incidents as an excuse for an invasion by Syria’s pro-western neighbours, and then to “eliminate” the most influential triumvirate in Damascus.
The plans, frighteningly frank in their discussion, were discovered in the private papers of Duncan Sandys, Mr Macmillan’s defence secretary, by Matthew Jones, a reader in international history at Royal Holloway, University of London. Continue reading →
A delegation from Syrian opposition is reportedly in talks with US officials over the targets they want to attack to weaken the Syrian government and the arms they want America to provide to do it. A “Libya lite” operation in Syria may be imminent.
The unnamed US official reportedly said that “the intervention will happen. It is not a question of ‘if’ but ‘when’.”
Over the last week, the US has been outright caught lying – admittedly by Pentagon officials, regarding Russian gunships being shipped to Syria. In New York Times’ “Copters in Syria May Not Be New, U.S. Officials Say,” a senior defense department official admitted when US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made her fraudulent claim regarding Russian weapon shipments, she “put a little spin on it to put the Russians in a difficult position.”
The New York Times continued by stating, “Mrs. Clinton’s claim about the helicopters, administration officials said, is part of a calculated effort to raise the pressure on Russia to abandon President Bashar al-Assad, its main ally in the Middle East,” indicative of the campaign of propaganda and lies orchestrated by the US State Department, the British Foreign Office, and Western and Gulf State news outlets around the world to demonize both the Syrian government and its extensive allies around the world, contrary to the facts on the ground.
RT has warned of a possible plot being fomented by Syrian rebels inside NATO member Turkey. The plot involves Syrian rebels deploying chemical weapons obtained in Libya against Syrian civilians, then blaming the Syrian government for the mass casualty event. This of course would provide the West the “casus belli” it has been searching for to circumvent the UN Security Council and implement its long-planned campaign of regime change.
Image: The symbols for nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons. The West is the undisputed champion of deploying each of these weapons of mass destruction against their enemies – from nuclear bombs upon Japan, to depleted uranium and white phosphorus upon Iraq, to Agent Orange all across Vietnam – it stands to reason that these weapons would eventually end up in the hands of the their proxies as well.
According to the accounts, FSA gunmen entered the city located in the Homs countryside and after securing it began killing people.
“The attack was carried out by a unit of armed fighters from Rastan, in which more than 700 gunmen were involved,” writes Marat Musin, a journalist with ANNA News. “They brought the city under their control and began with a cleansing action against loyalist (pro-Assad) families, including elderly people, women and also children.”
[Editor’s Note: It is curious that the West is so seemingly outraged by the “massacre” in Houla Syria when NATO has been committing such atrocities along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border for now well over a decade. Hundreds of civilians have been murdered by US drone attacks (here, here, here, and here) with the only difference seeming to be the manner in which these atrocities are reported – US mass-murder downplayed, obfuscated and buried under terms like “suspected militants” while any death in Syria, regardless of evidence is boldly pronounced as the work of the Syrian government.]
One can only imagine the international outcry should the Syrian government have declared it was abandoning the UN-brokered “cease-fire” and was resolved to dealing with its opponents in the “only language they understand, violence.” However, the Syrian government has not abandoned the ceasefire, and has played host to hundreds of UN monitors. Instead, it is the opposition making such claims – claims that have gone unchallenged by the so-called “international community.”
