According to multiple reports, the Department of Defense is currently drafting plans for a full fledge preemptive strike on targets within Syria.
In a post published on CNN’s Security Clearance Blog, Barbara Starr (who many believe is herself nothing more than a CIA operative within the corporate media) wrote that DOD officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, had revealed to her that they are currently drafting plans for a potential strike on chemical weapon sites in Syria.
“The U.S. military has updated its plans for a potential strike against Syria after intelligence showed that the regime has filled aerial bombs with deadly sarin gas in at least two locations near military airfields, a senior U.S. official said Friday.
A senior U.S. official confirmed the details but declined to be identified because of the sensitive nature of the information. There has been no movement to put the bombs on aircraft and no significant additional movement of chemical materials as far as the U.S. knows, he said.”
Meanwhile, other reports have also surfaced that seem to confirm that a NATO lead attack on Syria is indeed imminent and that the firepower to do so is already in place.
In early December, UN officials said they’re recalling all non-essential Syrian staff. Growing conflict dangers were cited. Perhaps advance word of imminent NATO intervention was gotten.
On December 6, CNN cited a Pentagon spokesman Little saying Washington updated its military options for potentially striking Syria. “We are prepared for a full range of contingencies,” said Little.
He added that US forces have all the firepower needed in the region for full-scale war if ordered. A previous article said Washington positioned considerable military strength off Syria’s coast.
It includes 10,000 combat troops, 70 fighter-bombers, 17 or more warships (including the USS Eisenhower and Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group), heavy armaments, offensive Patriot missiles, Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System readiness, and Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) capability.
It suggests US-led NATO intervention could happen any time. More than ever it looks imminent.
In the blog post cited above, Barbara (intelligence operative extraordinaire) Starr also confirmed that the firepower is ready to go.
The official also said the U.S. has all the firepower it needs in the region to conduct military action against Syria if Obama orders it. The U.S. maintains a fighter and bomber aircraft presence across the Middle East, including on board aircraft carriers. There are also warships with satellite-guided Tomahawk cruise missiles that can be programmed to hit specific targets.
Initial Chemical Weapons Claims
The initial claims that the Syrian government was mixing their supposed stockpile of chemical weapons actually originated from an NBC report that heavily cited anonymous officials.
As if right on que, the national security correspondents on both Fox News and CNN went to work stressing the dangers now facing the world and again quoted unnamed operatives who could either be lying to the corporate media journalists or actually be giving them their orders in the first place.
Now, the United Kingdom has joined the “chorus” of concerns over Syrian chemical weapons.
In a statement at a regional security conference, British Foreign Secretary William Hague picked up on the ludicrous narrative that Assad would use weapons against the Syrian rebels when in reality these rebels are actual al Qaeda terrorists.
“We are extremely concerned,” Hague told reporters on the sidelines of a regional security conference Saturday.
He noted several “dangerous scenarios” for the use of chemical weapons. One would be terror groups obtaining such munitions.
Falling into the hands of terrorists?
We truly are in a Orwellian nightmare especially when you consider that the groups being funded by the UK and the US through NATO are the actual terrorists and now, with the threat of weapons falling into the hands of terrorists, a military strike is being planned.
The fact that the claims that Assad is stockpiling and mixing chemical weapons with plans to use them in the very near future hasn’t even been debated within the mainstream media just goes to show how controlled the war propaganda within the media has become.
For their part, Syrian officials have wholeheartedly rejected all reports that have claimed they plan to use chemical weapons at any time.
Syrian Depurty Foreign Minister Faisal Miqdad made this clear in a statement on December 7.
“Syria stresses again, for the 10th, the 100th time, that if we had such weapons, they would not be used against our people. We would not commit suicide.”
Many legitimate researchers and independent journalists have also noted that the initial chemical weapons claims are in themselves absolutely ludicrous and that if anyone within Syria were to use them it would most likely be the al Qaeda CIA linked and runSyrian Rebels.
In a report published on Prison Planet, Saman Mohammadi noted that from the very beginning the Syrian rebels have been Jihadist CIA run terrorists and that the corporate media is literally reporting the opposite of reality.
“After funding and arming the Jihadist insurgency in Syria, which has engaged in brutal executions of civilians and other war crimes, Washington is now finally ready to go to the next step in its long-planned aggressive war on Syria. The Obama administration is ludicrously hyping the non-existent chemical weapons threat to isolate the Syrian regime from the international community and justify a NATO ground and air assaultagainst Syria.”
As noted above, the corporate media has gone from exaggerating and slightly altering the truth to outright lying for the military industrial complex.
“What’s really interesting is the complete rejection of reality and basic truths by Washington’s occult elite and the dinosaur media.
They have abandoned the realm of facts, logic, and scientific evidence. Instead, they have fully embraced magic. Their policies towards the Middle East are based on messianic fanaticism and irrational hubris.”
These chemical weapons claims may very well be nothing more than well fabricated nonsense made up by the global power structure through the art of fiction.
USrael pretends reality doesn’t even exist. Its high-minded officials have transcended history. They govern with the arts of fiction. Truth is so passe. Whenever they want to attack a country they make up lies about its leaders, spread panic in the international media, and then pose as the saviours of the world.
Syria War Propaganda Equals Iraq War Propaganda
Eerily, the claims coming out of Syria seem to mirror the lead up to the Iraq War, complete with possibly false intelligence, corporate media war hype, and the possible return of the Bush Doctrine.
A shockingly accurate and telling video report was recently published that showed the direct connections between the now ongoing Syrian war propaganda and the Iraq War propaganda ten years ago, complete with a startlingly spot on description
“How can you tell when a country is about to get invaded? Listen to the sellout traitor talking heads on television tell you the country has “weapons of mass destruction” or “chemical weapons” and is “about to use them on their own people”..
The Gullible American public fell for it once, the media and government assume it will work again, only will it? ”
The Obama Administration has outlined two scenarios that they claim would cause them to intervene militarily in Syria which are if Assad decides to use the weapons on his own people (which seems highly unlikely to happen) and if the weapons have a chance of falling into the hands of “Islamic” terrorists. (Such as the ones that have been supported and funded within Syria?)
A report published on Anti-War noted that Obama is set to use the Bush Doctrine in a preemptive attack on Syria.
“Three international relations scholars, Paul R. Williams, J. Trevor Ulbrick, and Jonathan Worboys, explain in Foreign Policy how “the Obama administration risks resurrecting the much-maligned Bush Doctrine of preemptive self-defense.
Under international law, a state may only invoke its right of self-defense in the case of an actual or imminent attack.
After the 9/11 attacks by al Qaeda, however, the Bush administration asserted a right of preemptive self-defense against terrorist groups and states that harbor them or could supply them with weapons of mass destruction (WMD).
Many states and experts rejected this justification for the 2003 Iraq war because Iraq could not be linked to WMDs or the 9/11 attacks.
Unlike Iraq, Syria has CBW and has forged a close partnership with Hezbollah. Nevertheless, preemptive self-defense still suffers from the same theoretical deficiencies it did in 2003. The doctrine has a weak basis in international law and its legal recognition would improperly justify the use of force by powerful states.
“The situation with Syria right now isn’t exactly identical, but it’s notable that the Obama administration’s calculations for intervention rest on the same, almost universally reviled war criminal logic as the Bush administration.”
Possible Looming False Flag
With the news that Assad is supposedly getting ready to use chemical weapons, many in the alternative media have speculated that a false flag chemical weapon attack may be on the horizon to further justify what surely would be a war crime filled attack on Syria.
In a new report on his Land Destroyer Blog, independent researcher and geopolitical analyst Tony Cartalucci wrote about a video recently released on YouTube that seems to show Syrian rebels testing out chemical weapons.
“The video (see here) starts with several scenes showing chemical containers with Tekkim labels (Tekkim is a Turkish chemicals company) and some lab equipment, while playing Jihadists chants in the background.
A glass box then appears with two rabbits inside, with a poster on the wall behind it reading The Almighty Wind Brigade (Kateebat A Reeh Al Sarsar). A person wearing a lab mask then mixes chemicals in a beaker in the glass box, and we see some gas emitting from the beaker.
About a minute later, the rabbits start to have random convulsions and then die. The person says: You saw what happened? This will be your fate, you infidel Alawites, I swear by ALLAH to make you die like these rabbits, one minute only after you inhale the gas.”
An editors note from Tony provides even more important analysis.
Now would be a good time to recall US’ informant, codename “Curveball” – the man who provided the US with baseless “intelligence” regarding Iraq’s chemical weapons capabilities which were gladly used as a false pretense for a war that has left millions dead, mutilated, displaced, poisoned, or otherwise affected.
If chemical weapons are deployed in Syria, it will be by NATO-backed terrorists who acquired them from looted Libyan stockpiles, or apparently, perhaps Turkish supplied chemical precursors. While the White House cites baseless, nameless “officials,” here we see a video – not conclusive evidence, but by far more compelling.
Although the validity of the video has been thrown into question, the idea that the US-Israeli-NATO axis would stage a false flag attack to gain support for their new war is far from unrealistic.
We have seen false flags by government against the people throughout history, with the 9/11 attacks being the most recent large-scale staged attack.
The advent of the internet and rise of the alternative media has made it extremely difficult for the global power structure to use the corporate media to easily sell a war as was done so many times in the past.
A false flag just might be the main course on the menu as a planned strike on Syria could happen at any time.
