Kerry Rejects Russia to Embrace Terrorists for Regime Change in Syria
US Secretary of State Kerry dropped the pretense of peaceful cooperation with Russia in favor of continuing an alliance with terror groups today in a speech delivered to assure the world that the US was not leaving the peace process in Syria. Kerry farcically announced, "We are not giving up on the Syrian people. We are not abandoning the pursuit of peace.” Orwell couldn’t have double-spoken it better - in the twisted minds of those obsessed with regime change in Syria, bloody war can be mistaken for ‘the pursuit of peace’.
To ply his case, Kerry thumped his tired war drum with the same old false attributions and unevidenced assertions: Assad is a bad man using bad weapons on the Syrian people and Russia supports him so we can’t support Russia. The subtext of Kerry’s protestation is that regime change in Syria has been a State Department goal since the 1950s. Furthermore, Kerry admitted in a leaked tape of him speaking with US-backed rebels that he wanted to get rid of Assad with the coercive threat of militarily violence at the minimum. The State Department has probably known they were arming terrorists all along, and Russia refused a deal six days ago to stop bombing these US-backed terrorists in Aleppo that’ve taken to using hospitals as military headquarters. What the US State Department actually did in refusing to work with Russia to end terrorism in Syria and hereby deferentially refusing to condemn the same groups that they’ve been openly aiding with arms; the State Department has made an implicit confession of method, means, and motive regarding the continuing criminal actions being taken against the sovereign state of Syria and its long suffering citizens.
“We acknowledge in sorrow and, I have to tell you, a great sense of outrage that Russia has turned a blind eye to Assad's deplorable use of these weapons of war, chlorine gas and barrel bombs, against his people.”
Kerry’s ‘great sense of outrage’ is arbitrary at best, and more than likely a conflation of the activities of some of his own jihadist allies: the ‘moderate’ rebels who’ve made a habit of posting videos of themselves firing enormous explosive projectiles from their hell cannons killing Syrian civilians and the Syrian Arab Army alike. They’ve even fired chemical weapons from these devilishly disposed platforms. How many of these attacks were summarily blamed on the Syrian Arab Army? Where is Kerry’s ‘outrage’ for American and British sales of outlawed cluster bombs to the Saudi Arabian Government that they used on Yemeni civilians many times and might many times more?
And we run into this phrase, ‘against his own people’, over and over when regime changers talk of President Assad and the war in Syira. 21st Century Wire carried an interesting story recently from another publication, Be Curious TV, that when combined with other reports, lays waste to this notion. Dr Nabil Antaki, ‘a doctor based in the Syrian government held western sectors of Aleppo’, gives an amazing account:
“At the beginning of the war in Syria there were multiple groups among which there were a very small percentage of democratic opposition to the Syrian “regime” but the majority were terrorist groups intent upon establishing an Islamic state. Over time these democratic groups were absorbed into the terrorist groups and currently these terrorist groups represent more than 95% of the hundred or so armed opposition groups on the ground in Syria.”
This account corroborates a report given by President Assad in an interview with former Congressman Dennis Kucinich aired in 2013: “80 to 90 percent of the rebels; the terrorists on the ground are al Qaeda and the off-shoots.” In 2012, a widely circulated report from German Intelligence sited a similar number as being foreign fighters, some 95%, so as many have been pointing out for years outside of the gilded halls of editorially gelded media, the so-called ‘Syrian Civil War’ is not very Syrian, and therefore not civil war, and this is before we ever add the weight of foreign money and arms pouring into Syria to aid these foreign national proxy terrorists.
Kerry’s pledge of allegiance comes only days after the leaked tapes of his other pledges that all seem to revolve around the central theme of attacking Assad, “I lost the argument. I’ve argued for the use of force. I’m the guy who stood up and announced that we’re going to attack Assad for the use of weapons,…”
Secretary Kerry’s reference here to ‘weapons’ is the use of chemical weapon in Ghouta, Syria that inspired President Obama to draw his limp ‘red line’. Articles from McClatchy, Mint Press, and others would later reveal, via multiple corroborating witnesses, that the Syrian Rebels had fired the chemical weapons and that the weapons came from Saudi Arabia and Turkey, specifically from Saudi Prince Bandar, affectionately called ‘Bandar Bush’ by his adoptive American family (Prince Bandar Bush who’s also named in the infamous redacted 28-pages for helping to fund the 9/11 terrorists).
Kerry’s two-tongued talk today should also be seen in the light of the tacit threats that the State Department’s spokesman John Kirby made only days ago. Kirby, said with great assurance,
“…that extremists and extremists groups will continue to exploit the vacuums that are there in Syria to expand their operations, which will include, no question, attacks against Russian interests, perhaps even Russian cities, and Russia will continue to send troops home in body bags, and they will continue to lose resources – even, perhaps, more aircraft.”
This should likewise be seen in the light of the multiple deliveries of MANPAD anti-aircraft missile systems and the continuous bellicose calls from the chicken hawks and warmongers of the US Congress in a screeching, wailing chorus with the various mouthpieces of the military industrial complex that haunt the cable news houses. There was the similarly disposed tacit threat that Bandar Bush made against Russia as well, not to mention Gladio B, reportedly a CIA plan to explicitly utilize terror cells to destabilize nations in central Asia.
The unvarnished hypocrisy of these warmongers pushing for a ‘peace’ in Syria at the cost of any live that get in the way is only matched by the naked double-dealing of NATO and GCC with al Qaeda and their jihadie derivatives. These imperious, international PAX pushers know full well that there are reports that the terrorists in Aleppo are using hospitals as military headquarters, and yet Kerry would ignore the reports to spin the horrible reports of hospital being bombed for his admitted purpose of regime change (and smearing Russia along the way). AP reported on his contorted account:
"Together, the Syrian regime and Russia seemed to have rejected diplomacy," he said, opting for a victory at the expense of "the broken bodies, bombed-out hospitals and traumatized children of a long-suffering land."
Trauma and suffering,… to which the Washington regime is magnanimously planning to bring a resolute end with yet another ‘humanitarian’ intervention, like the kinetic non-war with military weapons and vehicles that led to the destabilization of Libya, toppling of Gaddafi, and terrorists filling the void of power after terrorists were hired to attack the power structure of that government. Washington Post put out a report today that should shock no one,
U.S. military strikes against the Assad regime will be back on the table Wednesday at the White House, when top national security officials in the Obama administration are set to discuss options for the way forward in Syria. But there’s little prospect President Obama will ultimately approve them….
A meeting of the Principals Committee, which includes Cabinet-level officials, is scheduled for Wednesday. A meeting of the National Security Council, which could include the president, could come as early as this weekend.
And while the US Government mulls escalation of yet another senseless war based on lies, their UN and EU allies were pushing in the same direction as Russia resisted. Since Kerry’s vow earlier today, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission, Federica Mogherini, contacted Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, about support for the EU’s ‘emergency humanitarian initiative for Aleppo’. Of course, this brings to mind NATO’s invasion of Libya using a UN mandate of humanitarian aid that was illegally and immorally used as a mandate for regime change in Libya. While at the UN today, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova had to remind UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Jordanian Prince Zeid Ra'ad Hussein, that the balance of power, and more specifically the power of the veto in the Security Council is an important tradition that should not be curbed for the purposes of addressing the humanitarian disaster in Aleppo. But it was perhaps Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Zakharova’s response to US Secretary Kerry’s war of peace that addressed the disaster in Syria most clearly.
“Washington has simply failed to live up to the key commitment under the agreements — to facilitate the humanitarian assistance to residents of Aleppo city… And now, apparently, the Americans are apparently trying to shift the responsibility on somebody else…. the United States failed to comply with its obligations pertaining to the delineation of the opposition from the terrorists in Syria.”
