Mogg on Parliament's Role on Bombing Syria

Impressive summation of the constitutional position regarding a standing armed force and its control. However everything of importance turns on whether Parliament adequately fulfils its role to hold the Executive decisions to account and to represent the prevailing public opinion. 

In both the case of the illegal bombing of Syria and the diplomatic response to the Skripal poisoning, it seems to me to have spectacularly failed. 

Despite there being over 600 MP's, barely a voice of dissent or critical analysis was raised against the action of the Prime Minister and her cabinet despite in neither case either the circumstances of the case are properly know, let alone guilt being reliably apportioned. In both cases as time passes, the allegations, rather than being strengthened, are undermined. 

Nor do the reasons for, or description of, the bombing attacks on Syrian targets stand up to examination. 

First to bomb alleged chemical weapons producing facility would not only defeat the object but replicate the very thing being complained of, i.e. the dissemination of poisons and their dastardly consequences. However given the obvious absence of these must mean that the sites were what they were claimed to be. 

Yet another Iraqi WMD moment perhaps?  

Neither as to the alleged Gouta incident, or the reason for choosing the target sites, does the evidence stack up, leaving aside that under no stretch of the imagination did a casus belli or legal legitimacy exist. 

The claim that this was a "humanitarian gesture" and a warning to future despots, is shown to be fatuous by the absence of any similar action against Burma, Saudi Arabia or Israel, where equally horrendous barbaric acts have been carried out against civilians.

Yet despite all this, the House was almost unanimous in its approval of the policy. That I fear proves either that Members despite all their brains, lack even the objectivity of just one individual on the Clapham Omnibus.

............................................................................................................

We have a Parliament of "representative" MP's who largely supported May and her decision, in cohort with France and the US, to bomb Syria, on the back of its illogical and un-proven claim, "It was Assad who dunnit". 

This supine tribal jingoism, that potentially could have precipitated a nuclear exchange, proves the gulf that exists between the elected and electors. 

Mrs May pretends that it was not America that decided events; that the timing was not chosen to avoid a Commons debate (and possible defeat); that the Gouta event was proved to be carried out by Assad; that the targets were chemical manufacturing sites; that the action has made more such events less likely; that it was done for humanitarian reasons, whilst events in Palestine and Yemen prove this to be hypocritical and clearly untrue. 

So on the back of a "farrago of lies and misinformation", May is portrayed as some kind of brave Boudica, rather than the toadying promoter of unjustified aggression that she has become. It is indicative of the sad moral state of our 'representative' legislature, full of empty sound and fury but quite devoid of reason or honesty.





Jeremy Corbyn opens the Emergency Debate on the Parliamentary approval of military action overseas [Full speech]

https://www.facebook.com/NyeBevanNews/videos/2111346139079314/



Poor old Jeremy. His heart may be in the right place and his intentions good but he lacks the rhetorical eloquence and fluency required to make a cogent case. Without it, the verbal contest flounders, even if the arguments are sound. The leader of any political party needs a degree of gravitas and deportment commensurate with the role, task and subject in hand, and this is perhaps even more essential in opposition than it is in government - although Mr Trump may be the exception that proves the rule! His popularity with the public rests on his principles and common touch. His failure to impress his own party and the House of Commons has more to do with his indifferent oratory. Where Rees Mogg excels, Corbyn fails to compel.

"DOUMA HOAX CHEMICAL ATTACK - Syria answers the deception"



"This is a copy of a film that I have received from Syria. It shows the White Helmets panic stricken video of the alleged effects on children and others of the chemical attack in Douma recently.
"It also shows testimony from the members of staff featured in the video. They say that they were treating the people for dust inhalation in the basements when a White Helmet operative rushed into the emergency room and frightened everyone by screaming "Chemical weapons!". This caused panic. The ambulanceman, nurses and doctors explain exactly what is actually going on here and how the video was shot without them knowing about it.
"The first they knew was when they saw it released on the media.
"Please share this video to help people understand that the US, UK and French governments have been deceived by the White Helmets who are affiliated with Al Qaeda and have been funded by our governments to create these hoaxes.
Bashar al Assad has not used chemical weapons.
Nobody died. Nobody was gassed with chlorine.
It has all been a terrible trick."

Robert Fisk uncovers the Douma TRUTH: there was no 'chemical attack'!

Yet again Fisk nails it.

The search for truth in the rubble of Douma – and one doctor’s doubts over the chemical attack

Exclusive: Robert Fisk visits the Syria clinic at the centre of a global crisis






This is the story of a town called Douma, a ravaged, stinking place of smashed apartment blocks – and of an underground clinic whose images of suffering allowed three of the Western world’s most powerful nations to bomb Syria last week. There’s even a friendly doctor in a green coat who, when I track him down in the very same clinic, cheerfully tells me that the “gas” videotape which horrified the world – despite all the doubters – is perfectly genuine.
War stories, however, have a habit of growing darker. For the same 58-year old senior Syrian doctor then adds something profoundly uncomfortable: the patients, he says, were overcome not by gas but by oxygen starvation in the rubbish-filled tunnels and basements in which they lived, on a night of wind and heavy shelling that stirred up a dust storm.
As Dr Assim Rahaibani announces this extraordinary conclusion, it is worth observing that he is by his own admission not an eyewitness himself and, as he speaks good English, he refers twice to the jihadi gunmen of Jaish el-Islam [the Army of Islam] in Douma as “terrorists” – the regime’s word for their enemies, and a term used by many people across Syria. Am I hearing this right? Which version of events are we to believe?
By bad luck, too, the doctors who were on duty that night on 7 April were all in Damascus giving evidence to a chemical weapons enquiry, which will be attempting to provide a definitive answer to that question in the coming weeks.
France, meanwhile, has said it has “proof” chemical weapons were used, and US media have quoted sources saying urine and blood tests showed this too. The WHO has said its partners on the ground treated 500 patients “exhibiting signs and symptoms consistent with exposure to toxic chemicals”.
At the same time, inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) are currently blocked from coming here to the site of the alleged gas attack themselves, ostensibly because they lacked the correct UN permits.
Before we go any further, readers should be aware that this is not the only story in Douma. There are the many people I talked to amid the ruins of the town who said they had “never believed in” gas stories – which were usually put about, they claimed, by the armed Islamist groups. These particular jihadis survived under a blizzard of shellfire by living in other’s people’s homes and in vast, wide tunnels with underground roads carved through the living rock by prisoners with pick-axes on three levels beneath the town. I walked through three of them yesterday, vast corridors of living rock which still contained Russian – yes, Russian – rockets and burned-out cars.
So the story of Douma is thus not just a story of gas – or no gas, as the case may be. It’s about thousands of people who did not opt for evacuation from Douma on buses that left last week, alongside the gunmen with whom they had to live like troglodytes for months in order to survive. I walked across this town quite freely yesterday without soldier, policeman or minder to haunt my footsteps, just two Syrian friends, a camera and a notebook. I sometimes had to clamber across 20-foot-high ramparts, up and down almost sheer walls of earth. Happy to see foreigners among them, happier still that the siege is finally over, they are mostly smiling; those whose faces you can see, of course, because a surprising number of Douma’s women wear full-length black hijab.
I first drove into Douma as part of an escorted convoy of journalists. But once a boring general had announced outside a wrecked council house “I have no information” – that most helpful rubbish-dump of Arab officialdom – I just walked away. Several other reporters, mostly Syrian, did the same. Even a group of Russian journalists – all in military attire – drifted off.
It was a short walk to Dr Rahaibani. From the door of his subterranean clinic – “Point 200”, it is called, in the weird geology of this partly-underground city – is a corridor leading downhill where he showed me his lowly hospital and the few beds where a small girl was crying as nurses treated a cut above her eye.
“I was with my family in the basement of my home three hundred metres from here on the night but all the doctors know what happened. There was a lot of shelling [by government forces] and aircraft were always over Douma at night – but on this night, there was wind and huge dust clouds began to come into the basements and cellars where people lived. People began to arrive here suffering from hypoxia, oxygen loss. Then someone at the door, a “White Helmet”, shouted “Gas!”, and a panic began. People started throwing water over each other. Yes, the video was filmed here, it is genuine, but what you see are people suffering from hypoxia – not gas poisoning.”
Oddly, after chatting to more than 20 people, I couldn’t find one who showed the slightest interest in Douma’s role in bringing about the Western air attacks. Two actually told me they didn’t know about the connection.
But it was a strange world I walked into. Two men, Hussam and Nazir Abu Aishe, said they were unaware how many people had been killed in Douma, although the latter admitted he had a cousin “executed by Jaish el-Islam [the Army of Islam] for allegedly being “close to the regime”. They shrugged when I asked about the 43 people said to have died in the infamous Douma attack.
The White Helmets – the medical first responders already legendary in the West but with some interesting corners to their own story – played a familiar role during the battles. They are partly funded by the Foreign Office and most of the local offices were staffed by Douma men. I found their wrecked offices not far from Dr Rahaibani’s clinic. A gas mask had been left outside a food container with one eye-piece pierced and a pile of dirty military camouflage uniforms lay inside one room. Planted, I asked myself? I doubt it. The place was heaped with capsules, broken medical equipment and files, bedding and mattresses.
Of course we must hear their side of the story, but it will not happen here: a woman told us that every member of the White Helmets in Douma abandoned their main headquarters and chose to take the government-organised and Russian-protected buses to the rebel province of Idlib with the armed groups when the final truce was agreed.
There were food stalls open and a patrol of Russian military policemen – a now optional extra for every Syrian ceasefire – and no-one had even bothered to storm into the forbidding Islamist prison near Martyr’s Square where victims were supposedly beheaded in the basements. The town’s complement of Syrian interior ministry civilian police – who eerily wear military clothes – are watched over by the Russians who may or may not be watched by the civilians. Again, my earnest questions about gas were met with what seemed genuine perplexity.
How could it be that Douma refugees who had reached camps in Turkey were already describing a gas attack which no-one in Douma today seemed to recall? It did occur to me, once I was walking for more than a mile through these wretched prisoner-groined tunnels, that the citizens of Douma lived so isolated from each other for so long that “news” in our sense of the word simply had no meaning to them. Syria doesn’t cut it as Jeffersonian democracy – as I cynically like to tell my Arab colleagues – and it is indeed a ruthless dictatorship, but that couldn’t cow these people, happy to see foreigners among them, from reacting with a few words of truth. So what were they telling me?
They talked about the Islamists under whom they had lived. They talked about how the armed groups had stolen civilian homes to avoid the Syrian government and Russian bombing. The Jaish el-Islam had burned their offices before they left, but the massive buildings inside the security zones they created had almost all been sandwiched to the ground by air strikes. A Syrian colonel I came across behind one of these buildings asked if I wanted to see how deep the tunnels were. I stopped after well over a mile when he cryptically observed that “this tunnel might reach as far as Britain”. Ah yes, Ms May, I remembered, whose air strikes had been so intimately connected to this place of tunnels and dust. And gas?

US/UK/France bombing of Syria.
Do the accounts stack up?



Map of Syria and targets the US, Britain, and France hit on April 13.
https://www.vox.com/2018/4/13/17221420/trump-syria-attack-strike-assad-russia-response-chemical-weapon

If as the Americans claim, at least 100 missiles landed, there is relatively little evidence of commensurate damage. Further, if as alleged, the targets were involved in manufacturing Sarin and Chlorine, there is absolutely no evidence of environmental or human casualty, as most surely there must have been if the claims are accurate.

In other words on both counts there is something very, very fishy about the description of the attack.


Damaged buildings in the Barzah area (AFP/Louai Beshara/Getty)  https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/russia-us-tensions-live-updates-syria-trump-theresa-may-assad-action-chemical-latest-a8302341.html


It certainly appears these were not chemical weapons sites, although they may have been formerly, and the fact that not a single person was killed or injured suggests there was no one there or in the vicinity at the time (4 am).

It seems likely Syria was pre- warned and the sites were chosen just for their media purpose. A sort of gesture military action to prove capability, should the need arise.

So we have a hugely expensive, illegal and dangerous exercise that totally lacks credibility, predicated on chemical incidents blamed on Assad, that also lack it.

Mrs May refers to Russian behaviour in the past as an indicator of present culpability, conveniently ignoring the West's record in Iraq, Libya and Syria, based on lies, that must do the same.

The unjustified death and destruction caused by the West, is not a strong moral position on which to launch more war, without even the backing of Parliament.

If radio and TV programmes are anything to go by, a huge attitudinal gap has opened up between the governors and the governed, in which there is not even a semblance of democratic control over the executive.

What pray then is different between this and an elective dictatorship, or indeed between us and Russia, where at least Putin, in respect of Syria, talks sense and upholds principles of international law?


"For a long time Iran and the Quds Force have been operating, with the backing of Syrian forces and the approval of the Syrian regime, from the Syrian T-4 Airbase near Tadmor." https://twitter.com/IDFSpokesperson/status/962394807745286144/photo/1?tfw_site=ABCNews&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.abc.net.au%2Fnews%2F2018-04-09%2Fmissiles-hit-airfield-in-homs-syria-state-tv-says%2F9633498


Perhaps nor should we overlook the fact that a Syrian military airfield west of Homs was bombed on 9th April by Israeli planes. Nor that the current US/UK/French operation acts as a very useful distraction from the unconscionable Israeli actions, shooting dead 31 and seriously injuring hundreds more in Gaza. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/apr/09/syrian-airbase-near-homs-hit-by-air-strikes-state-tv-says

How convenient then, as everyone is focused on the Syrian operation, four members of a militant Palestinian group were killed today in Gaza. The Palestinians blamed Israel who denied any involvement. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-israel-palestinians/four-palestinian-militants-dead-in-gaza-blast-idUSKBN1HL0TH

The only information on the East Gouta chemical poison attack comes from the 'White Helmets'. This is NOT a reliable source. For information on this organisation see:

Hyperbole or Reality?

"Ten Days Before The End Of The World"!

Image result for paul craig roberts images
by Paul Craig Roberts
The criminally insane governments of the US, UK, and France are sending a flotilla of missile ships, submarines, and an aircraft carrier to attack Syria in the face of Russian warnings. What is the likely outcome of this outrageous act of aggression based entirely on an orchestrated and transparent lie, an act of reckless aggression that is more irresponsible and more dangerous than anything done by the demonised Nazi regime in Germany?
There are no protests from European governments. There are no protesters in the streets of European and US cities. Congress has not reminded Trump that he has been given no authority by Congress to launch a military attack on a sovereign country that is likely to ignite a war, possibly World War 3. Everyone seems content with the prospect of the end of the world. The moronic American 'presstitutes' are egging it on.
Here are possible outcomes:
(1) The Russians, trapped in the deluded belief that facts and evidence matter to the West and that common sense will prevail, accept the attacks. This outcome is the most dangerous of all, because this outcome will encourage more attacks until Russia is backed into a corner and has no alternative to a direct nuclear attack on the US.
(2) Russia takes the initiative in the brewing conflict and escorts the US missile ship, USS Donald Cook, out of attack range of Syria before the attack flotilla arrives and declares a perimeter line beyond which the Western flotilla becomes target for attack. This should force a showdown between Trump’s warmonger government and the US Congress that would challenge Trump’s ability to unilaterally commit the US to war.
(3) Russia escorts the Donald Cook away from the scene and simultaneously wipes out the military capabilities of Saudi Arabia and Israel, removing Washington’s ground-based allies in its attack on Syria, thus loading the odds in Russia’s favour, and making it clear that Russia is going to pre-empt attack, not respond to one.
(4) Russia, in the deluded belief that it must prove itself in the right, accepts the attack and its unpredictable damage before responding. This outcome is almost as bad as the first, as this lets the war start in contrast to options (2) and (3) which have some possibility of preventing a US/Russian confrontation by forcing common sense on the Americans.
(5) Senior German politicians inform Merkel that Britain and France’s support of the US strike on Syria could commit NATO to a war with Russia. Germany has had one devastating experience with the Russian military and does not need another. They could pressure Merkel to withdraw Germany from NATO. The resulting consternation/confusion would likely halt the US attack on Syria/Russia.
(6) The US Joint Chiefs of Staff could easily and honestly conclude that in the event of a Russian response to an attack on Syria, the entire flotilla could be lost, carrier included, inflicting a humiliating defeat on US arms, and that in view of this possibility, the Joint Chiefs recommend against the announced attack. Possibly this has occurred and explains Trump’s latest tweets, which suggest that doubts might have entered Trump’s mind.
Even if a hopeful outcome such as (5) and (6) occurs, we are left with the dangerous situation that some elements in the US and UK governments were able to orchestrate two events—the alleged Skripal poisoning and the alleged Assad chemical attack—and use the events to leverage unsupported accusations against Russia and Syria as justifications for an illegal military attack on a sovereign country. That such an outrageous orchestration is possible proves that there is no democracy or constraint on government in the US and UK.

Wars are relatively easy to get into but much harder to get out of. And the consequences are usually disastrous for mankind.

Hope the war-mongering West is aware of the following before missiles start flying!

CHINA’S MILITARY ARRIVE IN SYRIA TO HELP RUSSIA

A number of British forces have been captured by the Syrian army during military operations in Eastern Ghouta, according to reports by local media.

According to a report by Al-Mayadeen news channel cited by Fars News, a number of British troops have been captured during the Syrian Arab Army's operations in Eastern Ghouta.  
They are believed to be a part of international military forces deployed in the region to launch a ground assault in Damascus in cooperation with the US. According to the report, the US and other NATO countries, Jordan and Israel planned to launch attacks from several fronts, but the plot failed as Syrian armed forces made a series of rapid advances in Eastern Ghouta in March. The plot allegedly involved massive airstrikes by US and Israeli planes that were supposed to pave the way for ground forces.

The Syrian army has intercepted a truckload of weapons, including American and British ones, heading to the militants holed up in Eastern Ghouta amid its operation to liberate the Damascus suburb.

Russia’s Sputnik news agency cited an intelligence source on Friday as reporting the development, and incorporated a video featuring the intercepted weapons laid out on the ground.

The Syrian army stopped the truck, acting on an intelligence tip-off.


“We organized an ambush, as a result of which a large truck carrying ammunition and weapons has been intercepted; some of the equipment is made in America. Also there were medicines and equipment for satellite communication there. All this was intended for militants in Ghouta,” the source said.

The footage featured smoke grenades bearing the inscription “Salisbury England"

Postol said: "I have reviewed the [White House's] document carefully, and I believe it can be shown, without doubt, that the document does not provide any evidence whatsoever that the US government has concrete knowledge that the government of Syria was the source of the chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun, Syria at roughly 6am to 7am on 4 April, 2017.

A BBC journalist expressed skepticism about an alleged chemical attack in Syria that the West has largely – and without evidence – blamed on Bashar Assad. He tweeted that he was tired of "staged" scenes before deleting the post.
"Sick and tired of activists and rebels using corpses of dead children to stage emotive scenes for Western consumption. Then they wonder why some serious journos are questioning part of the narrative," BBC Foreign News Producer Riam Dalati wrote on Twitter. He later deleted that tweet, but not before others in the Twittersphere managed to grab a screenshot of it.

Putin: West Will At The End Swallow Their Own Poison, The One They Prepa...


"Don't spit in the well."




Russian General reveals Western Conspiracy and warns America and the World of Dire Consequences!



From: http://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news/world-news/2235-russia-issues-ultimatum-if-u-s-attacks-damascus-it-will-be-the-last-thing-you-do


RUSSIA ISSUES ULTIMATUM: IF U.S. ATTACKS DAMASCUS "IT WILL BE THE LAST THING YOU DO"

With these words, Colonel-General Rudskoy, the head of the Main Headquarters of the General Staff of the Russian Federation (the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff) turned to all beloved and deeply respected America.

Today, a meeting of the Ministry of Defense of Russia was held, at which Rudskoy made the following speech:


"Even earlier, a few days ago, Valery Gerasimov, the chief of the Russian General Staff, made an open statement to all the world's media.

In his address, Comrade Gerasimov said that Russia is aware of the impending sabotage in the Eastern Guta region. The opposition, controlled by a coalition led by the United States, is preparing to use the world's banned chemical weapons.

We told you that we are aware of the facts that "actors" and equipment were already brought into the alleged attack area, with the help of which the whole world was later to see a film about how the troops of the government of Syria, that is, the army of Assad, violate the world legislation and applies chemical weapons against civilians.

So, at the moment, our intelligence has replenished, in connection with which we simply have to warn:

First. All that humanitarian aid of the Western coalition, which was supposed for civilians of East Hut, suffering from terrorists, was directly at the disposal of these same terrorists. 

Not only that the Western coalition provided the militants with everything necessary, so it also contributed to their ranks being replenished. How? It's simple. Terrorists give the civilians food, in exchange for their assistance.

The second. We have data that are not doubted that fifty kilometers from the US military base (near the town of At-Tanf), American specialists are training specially formed groups of terrorists whose mission is to conduct provocative actions using banned chemical weapons in the southern part of the country.

Earlier this month, these militant detachments were sent to the area of ​​the settlement of Deraa, which is under the control of the "Free Army of Syria".

And now, these units are directly preparing to commit provocations, preparing explosives with poisonous chemicals.

The plan is also clear: after a series of such explosions, charges will be brought against government troops. Thus, the US is trying to "untie one's own hands," to launch aggressive actions against the Assad regime.

We absolutely know that everything necessary for the manufacture of poisonous shells has already been brought to the southern part of de-escalation. By the way, all imported (materials were) disguised as humanitarian aid to private American companies.

Also, the militants were provided with fuses, which were brought under the guise of tobacco.

At the disposal of terrorists there are twenty containers with a substance like chlorine, which will be used in alleged provocative attacks.

All the preparatory measures are thoroughly masked, and the consequences of the attacks are planned to be widely publicized.

The main purpose of these provocations is to strike a large-scale strike by the US Army through the territory of Syria, in particular on government and state facilities.

We are also aware of the stages of preparation for this blow. In several sea squares, the United States creates an enhanced grouping, which is armed with cruise missiles.

So, in connection with all of the above, we consider it our duty to inform you that the Russian General Staff is very closely monitoring all changes in the situation concerning Syria.

We are also obliged to warn that if, on the west side, a blow to Damascus is struck, in the government quarters, among which are servicemen of the Russian army.

And not only servicemen, but also diplomatic employees, advisers, military police and the Center for Conciliation of the parties.

So, if this blow is, in this case, the Russian side will strike back not only on the missiles themselves, which will not have time to reach the target, but also on the square from where these missiles will be launched.

This we guarantee.

Thank you for attention."

On Saturday, the Hal Turner Radio Show web site outlined sudden and dramatic events which led Russia to conclude the U.S. is planning a major attack upon Syria. That time line of events appears HERE.

Late Sunday, the Hal Turner Radio Show web site outlined the bolstering of US Navy forces by 13 surface vessels and six submarines of NATO countries, which were just finishing exercises.

The events on Saturday and Sunday, as well as today's speech by General Rudskoy has not been mentioned EVEN ONCE by the regular mass-media in the United States or in Europe. Citizens of the West of blissfully unaware of just how close we are to the physical breakout of World War 3.
It is not surprise that the media is silent; they do the bidding of certain elements of government; the same elements now getting us farther into troubles in places we don't belong.

If the American people started hearing about this on regular mass-media, there would be a public outcry to put a halt to it. The elements within government perpetrating these shenanigans do not want the public to know, in order to prevent that public outcry. They want the eruption of war to be sudden and FRIGHTENING, so citizens will be scared, and will quietly fall-in-line and do what government tells them.
