War-weary citizens of the world have successfully stopped Obama's crazy plan to launch a massive attack on Syria... for now, at least. 

This is a great victory for sanity, and is largely thanks to the impressive diplomatic skills of Russian President Putin.

However, do not underestimate the evil intentions of the warmongers. 

They have a long-term plan to destroy all independent states, including Syria, by a combination of lies, war propaganda, and supporting foreign terrorists, including al-Quada, to destabilize governments they wish to destroy. 

This plan is all about securing resources for the benefit of the super-rich elites, and it is not in their interests to stop. 

So, be vigilant. 

Watch out for more media manipulations, fabrication of more false charges against the governments they wish to discredit and destroy, and the very serious possibility of some "false flag" event, which they will, of course, blame on the Syrian government or its supporters. 

The warmongers have been delayed in their imperial plans, partly thanks to Putin, but they have not yet been stopped.

They will continue their obscene war of aggression against Syria, using the foreign-aided terrorists to do their dirty work. This has already killed over 100,000 Syrians and created countless more refugees, during more than two years of the terror war.

Everyone seems to acknowledge that there is no military solution to the Syrian crisis, and a cruise missile attack on Syria would only make the conflict worse - as well as being a war crime of aggression against international law. 

It is long past time to stop arming and supporting the terrorists in Syria, and proceed with a sensible political settlement.

A Plea To Americans From Russia
What Putin Has to Say to Americans About Syria

By Vladimir V. Putin
"...We must stop using the language of force and return to the path of civilized diplomatic and political settlement..."   
Read Putin's op-ed in The New York Times.   Continue

Syrian President Bashar Assad said Thursday that his government would put its chemical weapons under international supervision within a month after it signs the UN Chemical Weapons Convention, but only if the United States stops its “policy of threats.”
“These are standard procedures, and we will follow them,” he added, speaking in Arabic with a Russian translation. Assad emphasized, however, that Syria would not follow such procedures unilaterally while facing US threats and international support of rebel forces.

“When we see that the US genuinely stands for stability in our region, stops threatening us with military intervention and stops supplying terrorists with weapons, then we will consider it possible to finalize all necessary procedures and they will become legitimate and acceptable for Syria,” he said.

This is perfectly reasonable. Unless the US is under an actual or imminent threat of attack from Syria, "the threat or use of force" against states is against international law.

U.S. Military Confirms Rebels Had Sarin
By F. Michael Maloof

As part of the Obama administration’s repeated insistence – though without offering proof – that the recent sarin gas attack near Damascus was the work of the Assad regime, the administration has downplayed or denied the possibility that al-Qaida-linked Syrian rebels could produce deadly chemical weapons.
However, in a classified document just obtained by WND, the U.S. military confirms that sarin was confiscated earlier this year from members of the Jabhat al-Nusra Front, the most influential of the rebel Islamists fighting in Syria...

Meanwhile, an  Italian former journalist and a Belgian researcher who were recently freed from their al-Nusra captives say they overheard their captors talking about their involvement in a deadly chemical attack “last month,” which would have been the Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack. The Italian, Domenico Quirico, and Belgian researcher Pierre Piccinin were released Monday after five months of captivity.

“The government of Bashar al-Assad did not use Sarin gas or other types of gas in the outskirts of Damascus,” Piccinin said. While captive, Piccinin said the two had overheard a Skype conversation in English among three people.

“The conversation was based on real facts,” said Quirico, claiming one of the three people in the alleged conversation identified himself as a Free Syrian Army general. He added that the militants said the rebels carried out the attack as a provocation to force the West to intervene militarily to oust the Assad regime...

Now, a former analyst for the Central Intelligence Agency, Ray McGovern, similarly backs the claim that the Syrian rebels perpetrated the poison gas attack on Aug. 21.

McGovern was one of a number of veteran intelligence professionals who recently signed a letter to Obama saying that Damascus wasn’t behind the Aug. 21 chemical attack...

Retired CIA Analyst: US’s Evidence on Syria Chemical Attack Fabricated:  
Elements within the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) have fabricated intelligence to implicate the Syrian government in the recent chemical attack in Syria and cater for Washington’s case for launching strikes on the Middle-Eastern country, said a retired CIA analyst.

Syria: A Strategy For Anarchy
Regime change would not be the end of Syria’s troubles but their beginning.

US struggles show hazards of chemical weapons destruction: The US vowed to destroy its cache of chemical weapons by 2012. But tons of nerve agents remain in Colorado and Kentucky – reflecting how complicated the process could prove in Syria.

US Journalists and War Crime Guilt
By Peter Dyer

War propaganda is still legal and very much alive – flourishing, in fact, as demonstrated by periodic calls for one more invasion of a country which has never threatened the U.S.  

...That means that very large corporations are going for profits now even though they almost certainly know it will mean disaster later.   

It is no doubt the large corporate interest in this problem that has held to a minimum mass media attention to global warming. After all, it is such businesses that own of most of our information outlets. 

Thus, most of the TV, radio, newspapers and news magazines have not elaborated on the assured fate of the world’s grandchildren as the sea levels rise and the grain fields turn to desert. If they did, public concern would almost certainly see this as a problem that is of local import and demand government and corporate attention to it.   

Actually, eventual concern might turn out to be so great that global warming could replace the proverbial invasion from outer space. That is, it could be the threat that unites all parties against a common enemy...
