Ron Paul says chemical attack in Syria was a ‘false flag’


Former US congressman Ron Paul has said that a reported chemical weapons attack in Syria was a “false flag” likely carried out by the US-backed militant groups.

Washington has accused the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad of launching a chemical attack against militant strongholds on August 21, and is preparing for what it calls a retaliatory military response.
“We are not really positive who set off the gas,” Paul, a long-time Republican representative from Texas, said during a Fox News interview filmed Wednesday.
“The group that is most likely to benefit from that is al-Qaeda. They ignite some gas, some people die and blame it on Assad,” he noted.
Paul said that the case for a military intervention in Syria resembles the scenario used prior to the 2003 invasion of Iraq when the US accused the Saddam Hussein regime of having an active “weapons of mass destruction” (WMD) program. The intelligence was later discredited.
“Just look at how many lies were told us about Saddam Hussein prior to that buildup. More propaganda. It happens all the time,” he stated. “I think it’s a false flag. I think really, indeed,” Paul said, referring to the reported use of chemical weapons in Syria.
The US released an intelligence report on Friday claiming the Syrian government was responsible for the chemical attack. The Syrian government has strongly rejected the allegation.
On Saturday, President Barack Obama, who had previously described the use of chemical weapons as a “red line”, announced that he had decided Washington should attack Syria. The president, however, said he would seek congressional approval for an attack.

Don’t Fall For The Iran War Rhetoric And Propaganda

By Karl W B Schwarz

This week was a perfect example of why the Western Media and politicians are wanton liars and are not to be trusted.

Headline: “Ahmandinejad says Sanctions will be Met with Force”


Oooh, that sounds like a ‘double dare ya’ threat tailored specifically for idiot Americans. Do NOT fall for it people!

Well, I wonder that the truth is if I bother to read the article? Hmm????

Yep, exactly what I thought ­ another MSM lie. What the Iranian president said is the IRAN CENTRAL BANK would meet the damage done by sanctions with force. Not the Iranian military, the IRAN CENTRAL BANK.

What is Hell do you think the bank is going to do? Throw coins at hostile invaders that are lying just like they did to Afghanistan and Iraq?

Oooh, another daring headline: “Iran fires missiles that can sink a battleship with one blow”. Well, we are threatening to attack them. Iran is just firing a warning shot to let these liar warmongers know that any attack is going to hurt. They fired at a TARGET, not a US war ship.

What is that old saying: Being forewarned is being warned.

Iran has the absolute right to defend their nation from outside aggressors, such as Israel and the US. The right to defend is not solely that of the US or IsraHell.

Yet another headlie by the politicos and the main stream media:

“Iran is threatening US warships”

Again, a sensationalism headline (aka: headlie) knowing that too many Americans just look at the headlines, not read the article.

Most of the Iranian oil passes through the Strait of Hormuz, so Iran would only close it if they are attacked. Otherwise they have no reason to close it and major oil and LNG contracts with CHINA they have to fulfill. Many EU nations purchase up to 25% of their oil needs from Iran, so agreeing with the US embargo demands is literally harming their own nations. The people in EU are already upset with US meddling and lies yet again, just like Iraq.

As a matter of fact, it is the US that is threatening Iran by deploying a nuclear aircraft carrier attack force right in Iran’s backyard and in their face. Get that straight ­ the US is the aggressor in this current climate and their buddies are picking your pockets right now with higher gasoline and home heating costs.

Oh, Barky signs the ‘toughest sanctions yet’ because Tehran is not listening and obeying their wannabee Western masters.

Obama warned of dumb war with Iran

US President Barack Obama for yet another “dumb war”?
A group of former US intelligence officials have issued a memorandum to US President Barack Obama, advising him against starting another long “dumb war”, this time against Iran.

“Another Long War is not in America’s or Israel’s interests, whatever Israel’s apologists claim,” US Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) wrote in the letter published on the website on Wednesday.

In 2002, Obama, then a fierce opponent of the war, delivered a speech lambasting the Iraq war as “dumb,” “rash,” and a “cynical attempt” by the George W. Bush administration to “shove their own ideological agendas down our throats.”

The intelligence officials said the militarists, who “represent one Muslim country after another as major threats to US security,” this time are using a “dubious report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)” to portray Iran as a major threat to the US.

The White House has stepped up its anti-Iran war rhetoric after the IAEA released a report in November, accusing Tehran of activities aimed at developing nuclear weapons before 2003 and speculating that these activities “may still be ongoing”.

Iran, however, has categorically refuted the allegations as “baseless”, saying that as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the IAEA it has the right to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

The accusations come despite the fact that the IAEA makes regular inspection visits to Iran’s nuclear facilities and has TV cameras monitoring those facilities around the clock.  Continue reading
