“We Didn’t Know They Were Chemical Weapons”

| September 3, 2013

    In War, Truth is the First Casualty Everyone, even Obama, knows Assad would have to be psychotic to launch a chemicals weapons attack with UN inspectors only miles a way.  The whole world knows the CIA has been training rebel fighters (it’s not a secret when you read it in the Wall Street […]

Interview with Syrian President Assad

| May 20, 2013

A highly illuminating interview (for Argentinian TV) in which Assad argues that the Syrian people should decide who rules Syria in internationally monitored elections scheduled for 2014. They would be conducted according to constitutional reforms enacted in 2011-2012 that limit the power of the ruling Ba’ath Party. * Assad also has some interesting observations on […]

Is Obama Losing the Covert War in Syria?

| May 17, 2013

It appears the Obama administration and their Turkish, Saudi and Qatari allies are losing the covert war in Syria. If so, this explains why the President and US and British media are once again trying to ramp up momentum for military intervention against the Assad regime. The following video from AMTV examines the evidence that […]

Benghazi’s Dirty Little Secret

| May 12, 2013

What Really Happened in Benghazi? Americans (at least the ones who know where Libya is) are understandably confused and angry about the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack that killed US ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi. If they are looking to the current congressional hearings to clarify what really happened, they will be greatly disappointed. Despite […]

According to an October 14th New York Times artice: “Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster, according to American […]

Legendary Middle East reporter Robert Fisk, the first western eyewitness to enter the massacre town of Daraya, writes in the Independent about eyewitness reports that Syrian rebels, not government forces, are responsible for the mass killing of 245 Darayan men, women and children.

Riad Farid Hijab is the former agriculture minister President Assad recently appointed as Syria’s new prime minister. Syrians went to the polls to elect a new parliament last month, and Assad has asked Hijab to form a new government.

The Houla Massacres and the Cold War Against Russia and China

| June 2, 2012

I find the US government version of the Houla massacre in Syria extremely problematic for all the usual reasons: 1)      The story keeps changing. The initial reporting blamed the civilian deaths on heavy artillery bombardment and shelling by the Syrian government. When UN observers reported that most of the deaths resulted from execution-style shootings, the […]

The Truth About Syria’s Civil War

| April 20, 2012

Anyone who has followed the war in Iraq is aware of the bitter religious and political rivalry between Sunni and Shia Muslims. Thus it’s pity that the mainstream corporate media fails to enlighten us about the major sectarian conflict underlying the civil war in Syria. Yes, civil war. For thirteen months, the Muslim Brotherhood, which […]

Why the US Wants Regime Change in Syria

| February 16, 2012

(This is the second of two blogs about the covert US war against Syria. The case Obama is making for sanctions and “humanitarian” intervention in Syria is a total fabrication. The US goal in Syria is regime change. The people Assad is attacking aren’t unarmed protestors. They are Islamic militants that the US and NATO […]
