What is the next step in Syria? Will the US or Israel sink a US warship or launch a terror atack to get the war agenda back on track?

The war for the bankers (or the war for the petrodollar, or the war to revive Bretton-Woods; they are really all the same) has stumbled. The official US Government claim that Bashar al-Assad invited the United Nations Chemical Weapons inspectors into Syria, the unleashed a chemical weapon attack, not against the leaders of the hired mercenaries trying to oust him, but against women and children, was a non-starter right from the very beginning.

In determining if a story coming from the government or media is a lie, it is important to look for what should be there and isn't. In this story, what should be there and isn't is a MOTIVE for Assad to launch a gas attack against women and children. John Kerry, John McCain, Barack Obama, etc. et. al. can scream their baseless accusations all they want, but they cannot answer the question of just WHY Assad would carry out a chemical weapon attack on women and children. Such an attack serves no military purpose at all. There is nothing to be gained by that attack, which did, after all strike his own soldiers. Assad gains nothing politically from such an attack, indeed risks alienating the 70% of the Syrian people who support him (according to NATO's figures). In short, what should be there in the official story but is not is Assad's motive for carrying out a chemical weapon attack on women and children right in front of the UN chemical weapons inspectors. And that, along with the prima fascia absurdity of the official story, is why we know it it a lie, just like the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons, stolen Kuwaiti incubators, torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, Spanish mines in Havana Harbor, etc. etc. etc. etc.

Both the United Nations and NATO have already refused to support the coming US attack on Syria (which has, of course, not actually attacked the United States). One can only imagine the desperation on the bowels of power (not to mention a complete lack of respect for the intelligence of the American people) for them to even try such a blatant lie.

John Kerry's "Moral Compass" comment in his pathetic attempt to bolster the official story reveals that the US Government now realizes belatedly they have overstepped. They crossed the "red line" of believability with the American people, and even that segment of the population still desperate to cling to the illusion that the US are the good guys and all these wars, overthrows, drone strikes, and torture, were somehow necessary and right are awake, and angry. That Kerry felt he had to address the issue of doubt regarding the official story betrays much that Kerry probably would have been prudent to conceal. Obama's follow-up presentation on Friday sounded less like a President and more like a used-car salesman, even as he yielded to the law to allow Congress to debate and vote on the new war (although sources inside the White House suggest Obama may ignore Congress if the vote does not go his way).

So here we are.

The US Government is trapped. Having gone this far into the "Clash of Civilizations" (Actually a war between private central banking and government-issued currency, the same war America fought and won during the revolution) the US is unable to turn around and return to status quo ante. This "dollarification" of the world was an all-or-nothing deal. Along with the realization that the world simply does not believe the US story about Assad, the White House has to realize that screaming about weapons of mass destruction is no longer a propaganda option they can use. Certainly it will not work with the planned war with Iran. Yet the war against Iran is still desired and needed. Indeed the process of restoring the petrodollar, or forcing the world back onto Bretton-Woods (in which the dollar remains the international trade and reserve currency) cannot succeed unless Iran is conquered and forced to sell their oil only for US dollars. See All Wars are Bankers Wars for more detail on this agenda.

Already the awareness of this clumsy lie is spreading among the American people, who might have been wiling to forgive, or at least tolerate, that whopper about Saddam's nuclear weapons. But a second such lie, especially one as obvious as this, is insulting to Americans, who are wondering just how stupid the US Government must think they all are to have even tried such a stunt. There is a question of respect, and clearly the government does not respect the American people, to be willing to lie to the people so shamelessly.

The US Government faces a severe crisis of credibility of their own making. And such a crisis can only get worse with a government trapped into perpetuating wars and with no other option to sell those wars but more lies and deception. The US Government is going to go ahead with the attack on Syria, and somehow they need to drag Iran into it in such a manner than no excuses need be made to the American people expected to pay and die for that war.

There is only one way I can see how they might do that, but before I get into the details, let's take a quick look at history.

There is nothing new in a government lying to their people to start a war. Indeed because most people prefer living in peace to bloody and horrific death in war, any government that desires to initiate a war usually lies to their people to create the illusion that support for the war is the only possible choice they can make.

President McKinley told the American people that the USS Maine had been sunk in Havana Harbor by a Spanish mine. The American people, outraged by this apparent unprovoked attack, supported the Spanish American War. The Captain of the USS Maine had insisted the ship was sunk by a coal bin explosion, and an investigation conducted in 1975 by Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, the father of the nuclear Navy, proved that such had indeed been the case. There had been no mine.

In 1915, the passenger ship RMS Lusitania was torpedoed by a German submarine and sunk. The US media denounced the savage attack on innocent civilians, but German intelligence had discovered that the US, although still officially not a part of the war between Germany and England, was sending arms and munitions to England in the cargo holds of passenger ships. This made the Lusitania a legitimate target of war, and the German government actually took out ads in the New York newspapers warning travelers not to sail on the Lusitania, as she would be attacked for carrying arms to England. Following the sinking, the US Government denied the Lusitania was carrying arms and denounced Germany for the murder of the innocent passengers. Anger over the attack triggered popular support for the war and the US entered WW1. In 2008, divers finally reached the gold of the sunken Lusitania and confirmed the presence of a military cargo. The passengers of the Lusitania had been sent to their deaths intentionally to anger the American people into the war.
Hitler used this principle of lying to his own people to initiate an invasion. He told the people of Germany that Poland had attacked first and staged fake attacks against German targets. The Germans, convinced they were being threatened, followed Hitler into Poland and into World War 2.

FDR claimed Pearl Harbor was a surprise attack. It wasn't. The United States saw war with Japan as the means to get into war with Germany, which Americans opposed. So Roosevelt needed Japan to appear to strike first. Following an 8-step plan devised by the Office of Naval Intelligence, Roosevelt intentionally provoked Japan into the attack.

Roosevelt suggested deliberately sacrificing US navy ships (and their crews) at Manila, to get the US into war. Navy Chief Harold Stark objected, and Roosevelt backed down. (Charles Beard PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT AND THE COMING OF WAR 1941, p 424)


Later on, Roosevelt's plan re-materialized at Pearl Harbor. Although the popular legend is that the attack by Japan was a surprise, history records that Roosevelt provoked the Japanese and offered them a tempting target by moving the Pacific fleet from its well-protected San Diego base to the relatively indefensible Pearl Harbor in 1940.

There is no question that Roosevelt knew the attack was coming. A British Double-agent, Dusko Popov (code named "Tricycle") handed the entire Japanese plan for the attack to the FBI in August 1940.

Soviet top spy Richard Sorge informed Kremlin that Pearl Harbor would be attacked within 60 days. Moscow informed him that this was passed to the US. Interestingly, all references to Pearl Harbor in the War Department's copy of Sorge's 32,000 word confession to the Japanese were deleted. (NY Daily News, 17 May 1951)

Contrary to the popular myth that the Japanese fleet maintained strict radio silence, the Japanese command ships would receive messages from japan, then re-broadcast them to the smaller ships in the fleet which were unable to receive the original signals on their smaller antennas. The Japanese broadcast so often and regularly that Leslie Grogan, the radioman on the Matson steamship SS Lurline was able to plot the course of the Japanese fleet across the Pacific, and handed his charts over to the Office of Naval Intelligence when the ship docked at Honolulu, just 3 days before the attack. Grogan's chart and logbook, like Sorge's report on the coming attack, vanished (although there is still a record of its existence in the US Navel archive records).

Documents declassified in 1994 reveal that the US had broken the Japanese codes by the summer of 1941. Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto's message to the fleet was intercepted by Station H on the windward side of Oahu, decoded at Station Hypo at Pearl Harbor, and sent along to Washington DC, but not shared with Admiral Kimmel or General Short!

"The task force, keeping its movement strictly secret and maintaining close guard against submarines and aircraft, shall advance into Hawaiian waters, and upon the very opening of hostilities shall attack the main force of the United States fleet in Hawaii and deal it a mortal blow".

President Johnson lied about the Gulf of Tonkin to send Americans off to fight in Vietnam.

There were no torpedoes in the water in the Gulf. LBJ took advantage of an inexperienced sonar man's report to goad Congress into escalating the Vietnam War.

President Bush and his Neocon associates lied to Congress and the American people, to initiate a war of conquest in Iraq, based on the false claim that Iraq possessed nuclear weapons. According to a memo leaked from inside the British Government the decision to go to war was followed by the "fixing" of information around that policy.


The lie was supported in part by Tony Blair's "Dodgy Dossier", a document released by the Prime Minister that made many of the claims used to support the push for war. The dossier soon collapsed when it was revealed that much of it had been plagiarized from a student thesis paper that was 12 years old!


Then there was the claim about the "Mobile biological weapons laboratories". Proffered in the absence of any real laboratories in the wake of the invasion, photos of these trailers were shown on all the US Mainstream Media, with the claim they while seeming to lack anything suggesting biological processing, these were part of a much larger assembly of multiple trailers that churned out biological weapons of mass destruction.
The chief proponent of this hoax was Colin Powell, who presented illustrations such as this one to the United Nations on February 5th, 2003.

This claim fell apart when it was revealed that these trailers were nothing more than hydrogen gas generators used to inflate weather balloons. This fact was already known to both the US and UK, as a British company manufactured the units and sold them to Iraq.

Colin Powell's speech to the UN was itself one misstatement after another. Powell claimed that Iraq had purchased special aluminum tubes whose only possible use was in uranium enrichment centrifuges. Both CIA and Powell's own State Department confirmed that the tubes were parts for missiles Saddam was legally allowed to have. Following the invasion, no centrifuges, aluminum or otherwise were found.

Powell also claimed to the United Nations that the photo on the left showed "Decontamination Vehicles". But when United Nations inspectors visited the site after the invasion, they located the vehicles and discovered they were just firefighting equipment.

Powell claimed the Iraqis had illegal rockets and launchers hidden in the palm trees of Western Iraq. None were ever found.

Powell claimed that the Iraqis had 8,500 liters (2245 gallons) of Anthrax. None was ever found.

Colin Powell's UN debacle also included spy photos taken from high flying aircraft and spacecraft. On the photos were circles and arrows and labels pointing to various fuzzy white blobs and identifying them as laboratories and storage areas for Saddam's massive weapons of mass destruction program. Nothing in the photos actually suggested what the blobby shapes were and during inspections which followed the invasion, all of them turned out to be rather benign.

In at least one case, the satellite Powell claimed had taken one of the pictures had actually been out of operation at the time. And many questioned why Powell was showing black and white photos when the satellites in use at the time over Iraq took color images.

Another piece of evidence consists of documents which President Bush referenced as in his 2003 State of the Union Speech. According to Bush, these documents proved that Iraq was buying tons of uranium oxide, called "Yellow Cake" from Niger.

Since Israel had bombed Iraq's nuclear power plant years before, it was claimed that the only reason Saddam would have for buying uranium oxide was to build bombs.

This hoax fell apart fast when it was pointed out that Iraq has a great deal of uranium ore inside their own borders and no need to import any from Niger or anywhere else. The I.A.E.A. then blew the cover off the fraud by announcing that the documents Bush had used were not only forgeries, but too obvious to believe that anyone in the Bush administration did not know they were forgeries!

In the end, the real proof that we were lied to about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction is that no weapons of mass destruction were ever found. That means that every single piece of paper that purported to prove that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction was by default a fraud, a hoax, and a lie. There could be no evidence that supported the claim that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction because Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction. In a way, the existence of any faked documents about Iraq's WMDs is actually an admission of guilt. If one is taking the time to create fake documents, the implication is that the faker is already aware that there are no genuine documents.

What the US Government had, ALL that they had, were copied student papers, forged "Yellow Cake" documents, balloon inflators posing as bioweapons labs, and photos with misleading labels on them. And somewhere along the line, someone decided to put those misleading labels on those photos, to pretend that balloon inflators are portable bioweapons labs, and to pass off stolen student papers as contemporary analysis.

Americans have been lied into war time and time again. They are trying to lie you into war with Syria, then Iran.

But the lies don't work any more.

How do you distract from a lie? With a bigger lie, of course.

As I type these words, four US Destroyers are off of the coast of Syria, ready to launch cruise missile strikes that will murder far more Syrian people than are alleged to have died in the chemical weapons attack. American and world condemnation are already building even before the cruise missiles are launched.

The White House needs something "dramatic" to make people forget about the lie about Assad and chemical weapons, (and Benghazi, and the economy, and NSA spying...) and re-ignite war fever. And somehow, Iran needs to be drawn into the scam, as Americans will no longer listen to "Weapons of mass destruction", or "They hate us for our freedoms", or "We are bringing Democracy to those poor people."

Which is why I expect Obama to, like Roosevelt, sacrifice a ship or two to anger Americans back into supporting the war agenda, and (in order to avoid having to come up with a reason to invade Iran) to blame Iran for the loss of the ship. It seems the only possible plan the White House can come up with to salvage the current situation.

Israel is the wild card. They have a long history of using false-flag attacks to trick the United States into attacking Israel's enemies. One of the best-documented cases is the Lavon Affair, in which Israeli agents bombed US and UK assets in Egypt and planted fake evidence to frame Egyptian Muslims. That operation, code-named "Susannah", failed when a bomb detonated prematurely and the bomber actually caught. After denouncing the accusations as an anti-Semitic plot, Israel's guilt was made evident during the trial, and Israeli's Defense Minister Pinhas Lavon was brought down by the scandal.

Then there was Israel's attack on the USS Liberty, in which Israel attempted to sink a US surveillance ship (killing 34 of the crew) while sending a message to Washington DC that Egypt was attacking the US ship. The plan almost worked, and a US nuclear-armed strike against Cairo was being prepared when the crew of the USS Liberty managed to get a radio message out identifying their attacks as Israelis. at that point, the official story was that Israel had mistaken the USS Liberty for an Egyptian horse-carrier, because as we all know, Egyptian horse-carriers all have giant dish antennas all over them!

USS Liberty

El Quseir, the ship the Israeli claim they thought they were attacking.

Many analysts have concluded that the attack on the USS Cole was also likely by Israel, to frame the Yemenis.

If you have not read it, you should pick up ex-Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky's book, "By Way Of Deception". In it Ostrovsky lays out how Israel tricked Ronald Reagan into bombing Libya using fake radio messages.

Israel, which supports and encourages the US policy of war in the Mid east, operates Dolphin class submarines given to it by Germany. They are diesel electric boats, meaning they are very quiet; quieter than nuclear powered submarines. Germany recently admitted they have known for years that Israel is arming their Dolphin class submarines with nuclear tipped cruise missiles.

On Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013, Israel launched two missiles towards Syria. Israel later claimed it was an unannounced test, but missile tests are always announced ahead of time, to give civilian traffic in the test area time to get out of the way. What appears to have happened is that Israel tried to spook Assad into an overt military action against the US ships sitting just off of the Syrian coast, to kick-start the war. Thankfully, Assad did not fall for it. But we can expect Israel to try another stunt.

I expect that right now, the war-hawks are considering a new "Pearl Harbor" attack to sacrifice and sink one or more of those US destroyers, and their crews. (As I type these words, the current whip count in the US House of Representatives shows the Syria War Resolution heading for defeat.) The scenario is simple. A submarine quietly sneaks up on the destroyers, and as soon as they launch their cruise missiles into Syria. either torpedo or nuke the ships, then to lay the blame for the "Dastardly" attack on Iran.

Alternatively, either the US or Israel could do a repeat of 9-11; faking a terror attack inside the US or Great Britain, either with chemical weapons, or worst-case, a nuclear bomb (in order to lay the blame at Iran's doorstep).

Problem solved!

Except, of course, we are now expecting such a stunt, because we study history and saw how Pearl Harbor was set up to start a war, and see how desperate the current regime is to replay that game.
