War Crimes in Syria with George Galloway

Published on Aug 20, 2012 by PressTVGlobalNews
The United Nations has issued a 102-page report, alleging that both sides on the Syrian conflict have carried out numerous “war crimes.” Now the trouble is in danger of spreading into Lebanon. The leader of Lebanon’s Progressive Socialist Party, Walid Jumblatt, has said that this could all herald the unraveling of Sykes-Picot, a reference to the secret agreement between the British and the French in 1919 that was meant to define their spheres of influence and control in the Middle East during World War I.

Separately, Indians celebrated on Wednesday the 65th anniversary of their country’s independence from Britain. Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said the country would send a rocket to Mars next year. India has one of the fastest growing economies in the world even if many of its people do not have a safe drinking water. In 2008, India sent a successful probe to the moon and detected evidence of water on the lunar surface for the first time. “A note to Mr. Singh, providing reliable water for your own people at home might be a better achievement,” said George Galloway.

    more threats from israel’s quislings:

    “Obama threatens to attack Syria”

    which are met by this response:

    “Russia and China have jointly called for other nations to strictly observe the UN charter and the international law after the US said it would bypass the UN in its actions on Syria.

    “Russia and China have very reliable criteria with which we measure all our steps. This is the necessity to strictly observe the norms of international law and the principles contained in the UN Charter, and not to allow their violation,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said as he was meeting with Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo in Moscow.

    “This is the only right way in modern conditions,” the Russian official added.

    The joint comment came soon after the US State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland announced that her country was still set to act in circumvention of the UN Security Council’s decisions on Syria. The official stated that Washington doubted that the Security Council would manage to reach a consensus on a Syrian settlement.

    US President Barack Obama added to the tensions by announcing that the United States could use military force against Syria if it sees a threat of use of chemical weapons by Bashar al-Assad.”

    is it time to dump those u.s. treasury bonds and round up the sayanim, yet?

    walsh nails the bennis zio to the wall:

    “A gentle summer day finds two women sitting near the reflecting pool in the shadow of the Washington monument, bright sunshine striking off the rippling water. One is reading something on her iPad, and to make conversation, the other asks what she is reading….”

    “The Russian Foreign Ministry believes the situation with chemical weapons in Syria may trigger foreign intervention in the country, Kommersant reported on Wednesday.

    A source in the Russian Foreign Ministry said that this scenario is being considered as “very probable.” “Our Western partners and Israel have recently made such statements. We believe they can follow up on these threats.”

    According to Kommersant, the Russian Foreign Ministry is concerned that the very threat of chemical weapons falling into the hands of radical activists may become a pretext for Western invasion of Syria.”

    Yara Saleh, hostage of the Free Syrian Army

    “Journalist of privately-owned Al Ekhbariya TV, Yara Saleh was taken prisoner with her team by the Free Syrian Army. She was spared and held hostage while a large mobilization in Europe put pressure on the French President to order his FSA friends to release her. Rescued in the end by the Syrian national army, she agreed to respond to the questions of Voltaire Network.”

    “The Iranian interior minister said that the global powers have allocated huge budgets for propaganda campaigns aimed at turning the Israeli crimes and aggression into secondary issues.”

    being a war crime, i’m also posting this here.

    the israelis often used unsuspecting people for their “suicide” bombs. having their terrorists pack released kidnap victims with explosives is probably thought of as an economical way to reduce the excess goy population in future lebensraum territory. for the jewish zionist, and their goy quislings, there is no of level of depravity that is too low:

    Syrian Insurgents Using Captured Prisoners As Suicide Bombers

    BBC Video Report

    and naturally, the bbc slyly and “judaciously” played down the significance of this exposure. a look on google news didn’t bring up this report, but then that is to be expected given their past burying of news items exposing their side’s crimes.

    the petains in occupied france offer their services to the fuhrer in tel aviv:

    “Paris said it is considering helping to enact a partial no-fly zone over Syria, proposed earlier by the US, the move adds yet more pressure on Damascus as the fiery rhetoric increases.

    French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian signaled that the possibility of establishing a no-fly zone in the area, between the Turkish border and the flashpoint city of Aleppo, should be considered.

    “The idea of a no-fly zone over a particular part of Syria, as suggested by Hillary Clinton, should be examined,” he said in an interview with France24.

    Le Drian stressed that the Syrian crisis would never be resolved unless President Bashar Assad steps down.”

    you would think the french would have learned their lesson after ww2. france is in dire need of a new french revolution.

    cartalucci discusses the zionazi use of unwitting people as suicide bombers in syria, and beyond:

    One can only imagine the headlines had the Syrian government been caught using blindfolded prisoners to deliver trucks to enemy targets, told freedom was at hand when in reality they were delivering vehicles packed full of explosives and were essentially unwitting “human bombs.” Curt articles with headlines like “ASSAD REGIME USES HUMAN BOMBS!” would surely be splashed across the Western press.

    However, it is terrorist militants operating in Syria that are employing these very tactics, apparently so frequently the Western media has feared eventually the story would get out. What would follow was a “limited hangout” provided courtesy of the New York Times, with copious amounts of literary padding to portray the craven war criminals as “human” and their premeditated violation of human rights as “desperate,” even “justified.”

    Even the title of NYT’s article, “Life With Syria’s Rebels in a Cold and Cunning War,” betrays what is essentially reported – an egregious war crime that illuminates what many have long suspected is the reality behind “suicide bombings” used by Al Qaeda and its affiliates not just in Syria, but worldwide – that they are not carried out by fanatics, but by unwitting, coerced, and ultimately innocent victims.

    What NYT does, is attempt with its long-winded narrative to humanize and endear to us the militants before revealing just what they did. However, the nearly 4,000 word article boils down to just 4 sentences:

    The real plan was beginning to emerge. It involved the prisoner, Abu Hilal. The assurances that he would be released had been a deception. The fighters intended to put him behind the wheel of the truck bomb near the checkpoint and tell him to drive forward in a prisoner exchange.

    The NYT would claim that the bomb “failed” leaving the terrorists “disappointed.” But in Syria, sectarian terrorists, many with direct ties to Al Qaeda, have been employing bombings like this for months, many of which have been categorized as “suicide bombings.” Surely had NYT’s terrorist hosts succeeded, yet another “suicide bombing” would have been marked down.

    It had been reported in May 2012, that terrorists operating in Syria had begun using bombs to target both the military and civilians, with entire “factories” dedicated to the production of explosive devices. Many of these bombs were being built by Al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists who had participated in the Iraqi civil war, cultivated by the West itself to break the back of joint Sunni-Shi’ia resistance to US occupation.

    Also, during the Iraq War and US occupation throughout it, there were reports of Iraqis having their vehicles impounded by Western forces, and upon securing the release of their vehicles discovering they had been rigged with explosives – in a scenario very similar to what is now being seen by US-funded, armed, and backed terrorists in Syria.

    With this latest insight into the deceit with which the West wages its proxy wars, and the deceit exhibited by their terrorist legionaries, along with stories like British SAS soldiers being caught in Iraq posing as extremists and terrorizing local populations to trigger further conflict, the public must be aware that not all is what it seems, especially in regards to what is reported by the West’s corporate media. NYT has reported this to portray it as an isolated incident, when in reality it is a method of operation that has transcended US theaters of war and destabilization across the region and beyond.

    What the New York Times has done, and many other Western media houses like it have been doing, is observing war crimes, then promptly spinning and excusing them. Concurrently, they manipulate Syrian Army operations, or even fabricate events, to demonize the Syrian government. This is war propaganda, and it is in itself is a war crime punishable under the Nuremberg precedent. As war criminals, the Western press certainly have found ideological allies amongst the terrorists ravaging Syria.”

    the zionazi’s toadies are trying every scam….

    “Syria’s claims that the uprising on its sovereign territory is being orchestrated from outside the country were given further credibility, by an eight-hour-operational-meeting held in Ankara behind closed doors between US Ambassador to Turkey Elisabeth Jones, Turkish Foreign Ministry Deputy Under-Secretary Halit Cevik, diplomats, military representatives and intelligence agency representatives.

    The detailed self-avowed plans for bringing about the hasty collapse of the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad were discussed.

    The fact that Turkey and the West have been openly funding and supplying violent insurgents, introducing Jihadists and every type of foreign mercenary and terrorist into Syria to continue the bloodshed is a point that should be causing international outrage, yet the West is unimpeded and openly admits to such violations of international law and international norms.”

    israel and its craven quislings, the nazi germany and occupied europe of our times.

    BBC News HD – Syrian rebels try to use prisoner for suicide bombing 2012

    “And the BBC tries to white was [whitewash] it. They have since removed their story and video all together. Down the memory whole”

    Syrian Insurgents Force Prisoner to Become a Suicide Bomber

    “This video and story has now been completely taken down by the BBC. It was originally from the new york times. I have uploaded it on my channel in the previous video. But have also annotated my own version which is fair use incase they force me to take the other one down.

    It shows how callous and blood thirsty these NATO/Israel backed warcriminals can be! So much for freedom loving unarmed protesters”

    aint that jewish run media censorship wonderful?

    syriangirl provided some top notch narration and commentary in the 2nd version.
