Pending US Invasion of Syria Sep 7, 2013

Pending US Invasion of Syria

Different Bark, Same Dog Fleas
As I write this, there is a torrent of US media blitz in selling the US invasion of Syria to the American public and to its allies. The rhetorics are running high and you could hear the saber-rattling resonating to every corner of the globe. The major networks are full of Syria's 'heinous crime' and powerful politicians from Obama to US senators to congressmen are in a frenzy to launch an attack. The US alleges that Syria used chemical weapons on its citizens - and therefore, the US should send its military might to invade Syria.

Sure, using chemical weapons is a big no-no. But I have major issues with the US allegation:

  1. First, is the US credible in their allegation?
  2. Second, if chemicals were indeed used, Syria would not be unique in its attrocities against humankind. China practically committed genocide against the peaceful people of Tibet, under the US nose - did the US bat an eyelash? No. The US, for that matter, is guilty of committing atrocities against its own people. So why is the US isolating this event against Syria? What's the hidden agenda?
  3. Third, the US keeps a stockpile of chemical weapons themselves stored in Pueblo Chemical Depot in Colorado and Blue Grass Army Depot in Kentucky. If they don't plan on using it, why keep it? Deterent? Yeah, right!

US Credibility

   Give me control of a nation's money supply and I care not who makes its laws
-- Mayer Amschel Rothschild
(founder Rothschild banking dynasty)

Iraq War
It hasn't been too long since the US cried 'wolf' when it announced that Sadam Hussein had WMD (weapons of mass destruction). On that pretext, they invaded Iraq. That was 10 years ago (2003). The war continues to this day with a combined 176,000-189,000 lives lost, 134,000 of which are civilians. There is no end in sight. But here's the rub: there never was WMD! That has already been established as FACT. And yet the war rages on.

Vietnam War
The Vietnam War lasted for 14 years (1961-1975), claiming the lives of 58,000 Americans with an additional 303,000 ending up in wheelchairs. Total lives lost on both sides? From a conservative 1 million to a high of 2 million. It's too simplistic to say 2 million died. Have you lost a loved one lately? How painful was that? For every lost life, there are likely orphans, widows and shattered lives. Multiply that human travesty 2 million times! What was the pretext of this war? That the Vietnamese attacked US Maddox at the Gulf of Tonkin. Now, decades after that war, even former US Defence Secretary Robert S. McNamara who was the boy-genius behind that war, claims that incident DID NOT happen!

Now, the US wants to send its army to Syria based on another allegation. After the bombings stop, after all the lost lives are counted, after seeing the rubble of what once was the cradle of civilization, would we be seeing Obama on tv saying, "ooops, sorry guys, the Syrian attack with chemical weapons did not happen!"

US Attrocities vs. Ameicans

Tuskegee Syphilis Study
In 1932, in a project dubbed Tuskegee Syphilis Study, between 200 to 600 black Americans were used as guinea pigs to study the progression of syphilis without treatment. The patients were lied into believing they were given free health care. They all subsequently died from the desease.

Mustard Gas
In 1942, the Chemical Warfare Services conducted experiments that used mustard gas on approximately 4,000 servicemen which continued until 1945. The victims were Seventh Day Adventists who refused to serve on active duty. The list goes on.

The US can hardly be using moral idealism in condeming Syria's attack on its own people. The US does not have the moral mandate. This is not to condone crimes against humanity. I'm only saying the US is only using morality as another pretext for war. It certainly has a hidden agenda.

   We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promise of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The super-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.
-- David Rockefeller
(1991 Bilderberger meeting)

Extreme Food on TLC
I was watching the TLC food program where the bald host goes to places around the world in search of food very few people will eat. This episode took him to Syria. I saw how the ancient civilization of Syria celebrates family, food and friendship. Their culture has been enriched by the thousands of years of history. I somehow dread to think that if the US prevails in its war effort, these same grounds where normal families break bread will be reduced to rubble - the women morph into widows and children into orphans. It doesn't have to be that way.

Wars are Designed
So, what is the rational for all this war mongering by the US? Wars don't just happen. It's designed. Same thing with famine, revolutions, market melt-downs, etc. The global economy is run by a few people in very high places. We're not even talking about Obama - he's just another high-value marionette. These powerful people decide where the next famine happens. They dictate where the next war takes place. Of course, for war to happen, the American public has to buy it first. So now comes the media machinery who'll influence public thinking through the tear-jerking news bites and pictures. It's a well-oiled machinery.

Plain Truth Documentaries
If you want to know how the international banking cartels put the world in play, watch the following documentary. Mainstream media attempt to discredit these by lumping them together with crackpots in tin-foil hats. But if you look at the compelling evidence and be mindful at the way events are unfolding, you'll reach your own conclusion with critical thinking.

What's my Point?
The war will not happen if the American people will not buy it. It won't happen if there is global outrage against the US for the future murder of innocent lives. Nobody has to die for the bankers. Nobody has to die for the US military industrial machinery. Technology is now in place to increase public awareness - the blogs, the social media, etc. Individual drops of rain can turn into a deluge. NO TO WAR IN SYRIA!

(Sep 9, 2013) Sad. History is littered with warmongers using people's welfare to wage self serving wars. There will be wars and rumors of wars. It's inevitable. Maybe a kind word today to a neighbor can start droplets of peace in a sea of hate.

2013: A Year in Review

(Dec 31, 2013) I refer back to the philosopher, Epicurus, who said that a key to having a happy life is to have an examined life. I don't know about happiness, but having an examined life allows you to be mindful of the series of events that took place to shape what you now have in the here-and-now. This way, you tend not to repeat the same mistakes. Or perhaps realize a repeating pattern that puts you in a vicious loop where you get stuck on auto-pilot.....more »»
