10 april

Nu är vi tillbaka i samma situation som i augusti-september 2013, det är som att ha en chimpans med en osäkrad handgranat i handen som hoppar omkring i närheten. Men nu är det en rödaktig orangutang istället, Trump alltså. Och situationen i Syrien.

Jag tror inte att någon som är det minsta insatt i Syriensituationen kan tro på att Assad skulle ha utfört en attack med kemiska vapen, särskilt inte nu. Ändå spelar många sk journalister och politiker med i spelet. Det fanns alltså ingen som helst gräns för deras trohet mot mänsklighetens fiender, västs finansoligarker, som nu hotar att anfalla Syrien. Som lätt kan bli en direkt väpnad konflikt med Ryssland.
Är man ondskans medlöpare så är man. Om jorden ska bli obeboelig så är det ett pris man är beredd att ta. Obegripligt.

Ett exempel är Erika Bjerström på SvT – Stormaktskonflikt rycker allt närmare

Ytterst är det respekten för internationell rätt som står på spel. 33 giftgasattacker har skett i Syrien utan att världssamfundet kunnat lägga kraft bakom orden att en giftgasattack på civila är den gräns som aldrig får överträdas. President Obamas ord från 2013 att kemgasattacker var ”a red line”, en gräns som aldrig får passeras, ekar tomt.
För Syriens diktator Assad har senaste åren visat att det går utmärkt att överträda den förbjudna gränsen, hittills har vedergällningarna varit marginella

Om det är så att 33 giftgasattacker har skett i Syrien de senaste åren, så tror jag inte att det har kunnat fastslås att någon har utförts av syriska armén. Jag vet att det har getts ut FN-rapporter som velat ge sken av att så har skett, men de har knappast varit oberoende. Och Bjerström vill säkert att hennes läsare ska tro att den syriska regeringen ligger bakom de flesta.

Syrien och Ryssland har bjudit in OPCW (Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons) till Douma där händelsen sägs ha ägt rum. De har nu kontroll över området och säger sig garantera deras säkerhet.

Just nu kom det rapport om att ett förslag från USA om en utredning har stoppas med veto från Ryssland. Rysslands FN-ambassadör säger att förslaget avsiktligt var utformat på ett sånt sätt att det skulle stoppas, för att rättfärdiga ett anfall utan FN-stöd.

Russia has vetoed a US-sponsored resolution on the alleged chemical incident in Syria in a UN Security Council vote. The draft was designed to fail and thus “justify” unauthorized action in Syria, Russia’s UN envoy said.
“If you made a decision to carry out an illegal military endeavour, we hope that you will come to your senses. You will be responsible for it yourselves,” Russia’s envoy to the UN, Vassily Nebenzia, warned.
Nebenzia said the US resolution, despite Washington claiming to take Moscow’s concerns into consideration, was effectively an attempt to resurrect the deprecated Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM). Even if the US project was adopted, it would take months to implement, the diplomat said, adding that the draft was a “provocative step” that had “nothing to do with the desire to investigate the Douma incident.” He said it was obviously designed to fail in order to serve as a justification for unauthorized military action against Syria.
“Why do you need the attribution mechanism, if you’ve already named the perpetrators before any investigation?” Nebenzia said, referring to blatant accusations against Damascus coming from the US and its allies.

Makterna bakom USA är troligen rädda för att teatern ska avslöjas om en oberoende utredning tilläts. De svenska medierna kommer att presentera detta som att Ryssland och Syrien inte vill att händelsen ska undersökas, som att de har något att dölja.
Ryssland hade tydligen ett eget förslag på hur undersökningen skulle gå till, som röstades ner.
The Russian-sponsored resolution did not get the minimum nine votes needed to pass, with six votes for, seven against and two abstentions.

Troligen hade videorna som skickades ut som bevis för en kemgas-attack spelats in i förväg, kanske på annan ort.

Paul Craig Roberts – On the Threshold of War. “Entirety of Russian Military on High Alert”. Unconfirmed Reports

The Saker has concluded that the Russians have concluded that it has been a mistake to put up with Washington’s lies, insults, and orchestrated events and have decided that if the dumbshit Americans attack Syria, Russia is going to take out the US forces involved.
Doctorow has concluded that as dumbshit as Washington is, the US Joint Chiefs of Staff have more sense and will not go along with an attack on a Russian ally.
I hope that Doctorow is correct. However, with that crazed demented warmonger John Bolton sitting in the White House next to Trump, who enjoys the role of tough guy, I am more scared by The Saker’s reading than I am reasured by Doctorow’s.
There are reports, the validity of which I cannot confirm at this time, that the entirety of the Russian military has been put on high alert, not merely the Russian forces in Syria. See this for example.
Nikki Haley’s threats against Russia today in the UN do not support Doctorow’s hopes that reason will prevail in Washington. The crazed bitch said that the US will act against the “monster” Assad with or without the UN.
Tough man Trump, sitting next to the crazed warmonger Bolton, declared that the alleged chemical attack in Syria “will be met and it will be met forcefully. We can’t let atrocities like we all witnessed… we can’t let that happen in our world, especially because of the power of the US, we are able to stop it.”
There was NO chemical attack by Syria. I know that for an absolute 100% fact. I would bet my life on it. Yet here is the US president declaring a total non-fact to be something “we all witnessed.” Little wonder that the Russians have concluded that the West is ruled by a gang of thugs supported by an infinitely lying and hypocritical media while the general public in the West has been hopelessly zombified.
If Doctorow is not correct that a sane US Joint Chiefs of Staff will prevail over the crazed President and his National Security Adviser, we are headed for war

Craig Murray – The Rush to War

I have never ruled out the possibility that Russia is responsible for the attack in Salisbury, amongst other possibilities. But I do rule out the possibility that Assad is dropping chemical weapons in Ghouta. In this extraordinary war, where Saudi-funded jihadist head choppers have Israeli air support and US and UK military “advisers”, every time the Syrian army is about to take complete control of a major jihadist enclave, at the last moment when victory is in their grasp, the Syrian Army allegedly attacks children with chemical weapons, for no military reason at all. We have been fed this narrative again and again and again.
We then face a propaganda onslaught from neo-con politicians, think tanks and “charities” urging a great rain of Western bombs and missiles, and are accused of callousness towards suffering children if we demur. This despite the certain knowledge that Western military interventions in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya have had consequences which remain to this day utterly disastrous.
I fear that the massive orchestration of Russophobia over the last two years is intended to prepare public opinion for a wider military conflict centred on the Middle East, but likely to spread, and that we are approaching that endgame. The dislocation of the political and media class from the general population is such, that the levers for people of goodwill to prevent this are, as with Iraq, extremely few as politicians quake in the face of media jingoism. These feel like extremely dangerous times.

Alexander Mercouris – Russia controls Douma, guarantees impartial investigation; that makes US attack MORE likely

US likely to launch strike because with Russia controlling Douma it risks losing control of the narrative

the US looks likely to launch a military strike – one which the Russians are warning risks dangerous escalation – not because it has any clear policy which requires such a strike, but because it is alarmed by a possible loss of face.
When a nuclear powered superpower launches military strikes for such frivolous reasons the situation in the world has become very bad and dangerous indeed.
