US slouches toward Syria (II). It is Obama’s war, but does he need one?

Senior US officials told the Wall Street Journal newspaper this week that the Pentagon is «preparing to send surveillance aircraft, including drones, into Syrian airspace to gather intelligence on Islamist targets, laying the groundwork for a possible expansion of the limited US military air campaign beyond Iraq». The daily noted it as «the first tangible signs that the Obama administration may be preparing for military operations in Syria»...

US slouches toward Syria, again (I). A war by some other name

What began as ‘humanitarian intervention’ in Iraq has since spread from Kurdistan to Baghdad to Anbar and in the past forty-eight hours or so reached Syria with the US president having given approval for sustained air reconnaissance missions in its airspace... At least 200000 Syrian people have been killed, 2.5 million Syrians have been turned into refugees and over 6.5 million Syrians have been displaced in the carnage in Syria so far. Isn’t that enough? Surely, some of that blood at least must be on Obama’s hands?

The Leninist in the White House

...In Washington coercion has supplanted the rule of law. Syria has every right to be nervous.  The reason ISIS is operating on Syrian territory is that Washington armed them and sent them to Syria. Washington’s air strikes on ISIS could very well be cover for air strikes on Syrian armed forces. Here we see the complete failure of the Obama regime...

Provocation as a Policy Tool of the West (II)

...To control Russia, all means are suitable, including, of course, acts of provocation. There has still not been an exhaustive answer to the question of who downed the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 over Donetsk, but it is already possible to suppose why this bloody act of provocation was carried out: to blame the deaths of the nearly 300 passengers on Russia. Or Russians living in southeast Ukraine. In the process, the West is managing to ignore the hundreds of victims of the Kiev regime’s anti-terrorist operations, a regime that is wiping out civilians with phosphorus bombs, heavy artillery, ‘Grad’ systems, ballistic missiles...

US’ Skewed Policy Priorities

The US State Department has maintained that continuity rather than change in the American policy is what should be expected in the aftermath of the killing of photojournalist James Foley by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria early this week. The State Department’s media briefings insisted that there has been an «ongoing policy initiative», an «ongoing effort» on the part of Washington  to meet the ISIL threat and «we will continue doing what we’re doing in Iraq.» So, on Wednesday, the US military took an additional 14 air strikes around the Mosul Dam...

John McCain, Conductor of the "Arab Spring" and the Caliph Ibrahim

Everyone has noticed the contradiction of those who recently characterized the Islamic Emirate as "freedom fighters" in Syria and who are indignant today faced with its abuses in Iraq. But if that speech is incoherent in itself, it makes perfect sense in the strategic plan: the same individuals were to be presented as allies yesterday and must be as enemies today, even if they are still on orders from Washington. Thierry Meyssan reveals below US policy through the particular case of Senator John McCain, conductor of the "Arab Spring" and longtime partner of Caliph Ibrahim.

ISIS: Region-wide Genocide Portended in 2007 Now Fully Realized

American journalist James Wright Foley was allegedly brutally murdered on video by terrorists of the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq (ISIS). The development would at first appear to portray a terrorist organization openly declaring itself an enemy of the West, but in reality, it is the latest attempt by the West itself to cover up the true genesis of the current region-wide catastrophe of its own creation now unfolding in the Middle East.

Russia – Egypt Boost Strategic Cooperation

...As a result of the events in Crimea and Ukraine Russia faces a stand-off with the West. The international events make one presume it’s not the last confrontation. To counter the challenge Russia needs allies outside the Western world – in Asia, Latin America and Africa. With its long history of ties with Russia, Egypt, a leading Arab nation, can become a Russian ally.

ISIS Threat: Game Changer in Middle East

On August 11 Iraqi President Fuad Masum asked Haider al-Abadi, the deputy Speaker of Parliament, to form a new government... On August 11 Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov made a statement pointing out that the fight against ISIS's militants must take place not only in Iraq but in the whole region, including Syria. He stressed that Russia supports the efforts of the Iraqi government to counter the «Islamic State»... Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) argued that the US has made the ISIS stronger by being «allied with them in Syria» in an interview on «The Sean Hannity Show»... The Senator blamed President Barack Obama’s policies for the deteriorating situation in Iraq. «Trying to build a country doesn’t work», he added...

Hillary Clinton is the grandmother of the Islamic Caliphate

Hillary Clinton is fond of changing history in order to put herself in the best possible light. As First Lady, she claimed that in 1996 that she dodged sniper fire while visiting Sarajevo, the capital of civil war-torn Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was a good story and, initially, she received praise for her «heroism under fire» from a typically sycophantic press. However, the story was false. Mrs. Clinton never came under sniper fire. She lied. And the lies of the one-time and prospective presidential candidate did not stop with Bosnia. According to one person close to the ex-First Lady, her first major book, «Living History», was full of so many lies and half-truths, it should have been sold under the heading of «fiction»...
