Those Condemning Syria Have Themselves Recently Used Chemical Weapons

Not only did Sean Spicer say that Hitler never used chemical weapons, but Secretary of Defense Mattis said:

Even in World War II chemical weapons were not used on battlefields. Even in World War II, chemical weapons were not used on battlefields. Even in the Korean War, they were not used on battlefields.

***

Since World War I there’s been an international convention on this.

But U.S. used chemical weapons against civilians in Iraq in 2004. Evidence here, here, here, here, here, here. The use of those weapons greatly increased the rate of birth defects.

The U.S. armed and supported Iraq after it invaded Iran and engaged in a long, bloody war which included the use of chemical weapons. The U.S. provided chemical weapons to Saddam Hussein to use against Iran.

Here is former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld meeting with Saddam in the 1980’s, several months after Saddam had used chemical weapons in a massacre:

FLASHBACK - Trump says George W. Bush ‘lied’ to get U.S. into Iraq

“Obviously, the war in Iraq was a big, fat mistake, all right?” Trump thundered when asked about his call for then-President George W. Bush to be impeached. “They lied. They said there were weapons of mass destruction. There were none, and they knew there were none.”

Hardball Diplomacy: Why Trump's Show of Force Leaves Beijing Unimpressed

The Chinese have deployed upwards of 150,000 troops to the Yalu under the pretext they are all medical personnel,or at least that is what the idiots in dc want to believe.

The timing of Donald Trump's strike on Syria was aimed at sending a strong signal to Beijing, Malaysian geopolitical analyst Mathew Maavak told Sputnik. The geopolitical analyst explained why Trump's "hardball diplomacy" left the Chinese leadership unimpressed.
Surprisingly, Xi remained silent in response to the show of force.

"If the intention was to intimidate China over North Korea's nuclear sabre-rattling, then Beijing will likely raise the stakes by providing an additional economic lifeline to Pyongyang," the Malaysian analyst suggested."

Tulsi Gabbard: ‘We Need to Learn from Iraq and Libya’ Before Intervening in Syria

On Tuesday, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) wrote an email to The Hill, pushing back against criticism of her criticism of President Donald Trump’s missile strike in Syria.
The Hill chopped the headline down to “We Need to Learn From Iraq,” even though what Gabbard actually said was, “We need to learn from Iraq and Libya,” questioning not only President George W. Bush’s policy in Iraq but the Obama administration’s intervention in Syria.

The main thrust of Gabbard’s email to The Hill is an argument against military intervention. She evidently used the email to lay it out in a clean and simple fashion.

“We need to learn from Iraq and Libya – wars that were propagated as necessary to relieve human suffering, but actually increased human suffering many times over,” she wrote.

Syrian Rebels Caught in ‘False-Flag’ Kidnapping

In August 2013, when the U.S. government almost went to war in Syria over a Sarin attack, suspicions that it was a rebel “false-flag” were ridiculed. But new disclosures about a rebel role in kidnapping NBC’s Richard Engel several months earlier show the rebels knew such propaganda tricks, says Robert Parry.

Is Trump Enlisting in the War Party?

By firing off five dozen Tomahawk missiles at a military airfield, our “America First” president may have plunged us into another Middle East war that his countrymen do not want to fight.

Thus far Bashar Assad seems unintimidated. Brushing off the strikes, he has defiantly gone back to bombing the rebels from the same Shayrat air base that the U.S. missiles hit.

Trump “will not stop here,” warned U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley on Sunday. “If he needs to do more, he will.”

If Trump fails to back up Haley’s threat, the hawks now cheering him on will begin deriding him as “Donald Obama.”

But if he throbs to the war drums of John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio and orders Syria’s air force destroyed, we could be at war not only with ISIS and al-Qaida, but with Syria, Russia, Iran and Hezbollah.

A Syrian war would consume Trump’s presidency.

WHITE HOUSE PETITION - Cease military intervention and involvement in Syria.

US support of Syrian rebel factions has enlarged and intensified the conflict to the detriment of Syrian civilians. An escalation of hostilities with the Syrian Government risks a broader regional war including confrontation with Russia. This conflict is not in the interest of the American people and further, military strikes against a sovereign nation without a declaration of war is a war crime under international law, and in violation of the Constitution. Immediately cease all hostilities against the Syrian Government including airstrikes and the equipping and training of Syrian rebels.

Former British Ambassador To Syria Warns That ‘Fake Flag’ Attacks Are Being Used And Will Increase.

Former British Ambassador to Syria, Peter Ford, says the recent gas attack could have been the work of Assad’s enemies to create a pretext to attack Syria. He cited the lies about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq that did not exist but, nevertheless, were the excuse for launching a war there. He says there will be more attacks, because Trump is told they are real, and they pressure him to react with military action.

‘Nodding like bobbleheads’: Putin slams NATO’s support for US violation of intl law in Syria

The missile strike on Syria was a clear breach of international law, while Washington’s claim that Damascus carried out the chemical attack that the US used as its casus belli is yet to be proven by any hard evidence, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

“What was the reaction of the NATO allies? All of them are nodding like bobble heads,” Putin said in an interview with Mir 24 TV channel.

Iran the Destabilizer: A world in turmoil, thank you Mr. Trump!

Philip Giraldi • April 11, 2017

The real Donald Trump has been exposed. The man who promised a sensible and non-interventionist Middle Eastern policy and a reset with Moscow has now reneged on both pledges. His nitwit United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley has directly linked Russia and Syria for punishment by the omnipotent Leader of the Free World lest anyone be confused.

The unconscionable attack on Syria based on the usual unsubstantiated allegations has shifted the playing field dramatically, with the “new sheriff in town” apparently intent on proving he is a real man who can play hardball with the rest of them. Last week Syria was blamed by all and sundry in the Establishment for an alleged chemical weapons attack just two days after the White House backed away from the Obama Administration demand that President Bashar al-Assad be removed.

President Trump, with respect, start ruthlessly purging the U.S. general officer corps

Last time we discussed your refusal to abide by the Constitution’s hard-and-fast war-making provision, a decision that merits — as it did for most of your post-1945 predecessors — impeachment proceedings. Waging war in the manner you did in Syria is the work of an absolute monarch or a dictator, not that of a popularly elected president of this republic.

Today, we must discuss a topic that has been covered in this space on multiple occasions; namely, the need for you to immediately purge — via forced retirement — scores of your general officers. The American fetish for treating these officers as god-like wonders is baseless, and must be curtailed to the greatest possible extent. Among the most obvious reasons they merit forced retirement are:

–They and their predecessors have not won a war since 1945. In truth, they have won nothing in the most war-filled 72 years in American history.

Intelligence and Military Sources Who Warned About Weapons Lies Before Iraq War Now Say that Assad Did NOT Launch Chemical Weapon Attack

Tillerson: US Will Punish Crimes ‘Anywhere in the World’

Donald Trump the presidential candidate made it very clear that his view was that the United States can no longer police thje world. President Trump, by contrast, appears to laying out US foreign policy to do that now more than ever.

In the ultimate expression of the “world’s policeman” stance of the US, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson declared today that the United States was prepared to punish all those “who commit crimes against the innocents anywhere in the world.”

The context of Tillerson’s comments was a speech at a memorial to a Nazi massacre, but the broadness of the declaration clearly was intended to go far beyond simply being a reiteration of the US justification for intervention against Nazi Germany in World War 2.

For one, the comment comes just a few days after the United States attacked Syria, over US allegations of a “gas attack” carried out by the Syrian government, but before any sort of international investigation could be carried out on the claims.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the United States government has just declared itself "Judge, jury, and executioner..." for the entire world?!?

And NOT the US's military might to further US government's geopolitical agenda?!?

I'd laugh at Tillerson's statement...if it wasn't so hard to stop laughing these days!!

'It's No Coincidence': Pentagon Attacks Syria After Bannon's Removal From NSC

It's no accident that the Pentagon launched an unprecedented airstrike against Damascus hours after President Donald Trump removed White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon from the National Security Council, Cornell Clayton, Director of the Thomas S. Foley Institute of Public Policy and Public Service at Washington State University, asserted.

The analyst told Radio Sputnik that Bannon's presence on the council designed to advise the US president on national security and foreign policy matters was "always an anomaly," adding that his primary task was to "make sure that the NSC was de-operationalized."

The U.S. cruise missile strike on a Syrian air base last week damaged or destroyed 20 percent of Syria's operational aircraft, as well as fuel and ammunition sites and air defense capabilities, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Monday.

"The Syrian government has lost the ability to refuel or re-arm aircraft at Shayrat airfield and at this point, use of the runway is of idle military interest," Mattis said in a statement.

Make America Neocon Again

By Gilad Atzmon

It doesn’t take a military analyst to grasp that the American attack on a remote Syrian airfield contradicts every possible military rationale. If America really believed that Assad possessed a WMD stockpile and kept it in al-Shayrat airbase, launching a missile attack that could lead to a release of lethal agents into the air would be the last thing it would do. If America was determined to ‘neutralise’ Assad’s alleged ‘WMD ability’ it would deploy special forces or diplomacy. No one defuses WMD with explosives, bombs or cruise missiles. It is simply unheard of.

America targeted al-Shayrat because it knew with certainty that there were no WMD in that location. It was a firework show. It had no military objective.

FLASHBACK - Top Journalist Says Hillary Approved Sending Sarin to Rebels Used to Frame Assad, Start Syrian War

World renowned journalist Seymour Hersh has revealed, in a series of interviews and books, that the Obama Administration falsely blamed the government of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad for the sarin gas attack that Obama was trying to use as an excuse to invade Syria.

As Eric Zuesse explained in Strategic Culture, Hersh pointed to a report from British intelligence saying that the sarin that was used didn’t come from Assad’s stockpiles. Hersh also said that a secret agreement in 2012 was reached between the Obama Administration and the leaders of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, to set up a sarin gas attack and blame it on Assad so that the US could invade and overthrow Assad.

Podcast:

Arnaldo Claudio, a retired senior US Military Police officer, discusses his 2005 investigation of human rights abuses of detainees in Tal Afar, in a camp commanded by then-Colonel H.R. McMaster, whom Claudio threatened to arrest. According to Claudio, detainees were kept in overcrowded conditions, handcuffed, deprived of food and water, and soiled by their own urine and feces. A so-called “good behavior program” was implemented by McMaster, that held detainees indefinitely (beyond a rule requiring release after 2 weeks) unless they provided “actionable intelligence.”

French editorial: "Trump has just made his first major international mistake"

One can understand that Donald Trump felt emotional seeing these small bodies killed by sarin gas. But didn't he act too quickly, shooting off his Tomahawk fire at the Syrian military airport in Shayrat? Didn't he thus contradict his desire not to have America play the gendarme of the world? Had he not infringed the sovereignty of a country whose president he had defended a few days before?

One can fear the worst, if he were to take up a desire for retribution or revenge by triggering the nuclear fire of which he is the only one to possess the key! That he reacted so with Merkel and Holland, but with Putin's total disapproval, could be pardoned if he were assured that it was the Syrian air force that bombarded the town of Khan Sheikhun with chemical weapons.

Poodle Trump Runs With Dogs of War

So the brash, big-mouth tycoon in the White House with an outsized ego has finally unleashed the dogs of war in Syria.

Invoking God and the suffering of “little babies”, the supposed US Commander-in-Chief Donald Trump ordered the bombing of Syria with cruise missiles launched from warships in the Mediterranean

But the upshot is this: Trump is acting like an obedient poodle going along with the Machiavellian American power system. Invoking God and suffering babies is just a shallow moral cover for his complicity in another US criminal act – in a countless list of such crimes down through history.

To save his political skin and no doubt lucrative future business opportunities for his dynasty, Trump has donned the cap of Commander-in-Chief and is groveling before the American war machine.

He is handing over an “official” license for war in Syria that the American Deep State has been craving for years.

Trump’s Base Revolts Against Syria Strike

President Trump’s former enemies in the mainstream media, which he has characterized as purveyors of “fake news,” turned on a dime the moment he bombed Syria: the Establishment was thrilled that, suddenly, he was acting “presidential.” CNN, a particular target of the President’s ire, was gushing: NBC’s Brian Williams, in a bizarre turn of phrase, hailed the “beauty” of the bombing, which killed a number of civilians. Democratic party politicians, with few exceptions, stood at attention and saluted, while Trump’s Republican critics – notably John McCain and Lindsey Graham – praised the President while taking the opportunity to agitate for more extensive military action.

Syria: Mother, Six Children Killed in US-Led Airstrike on Ferry across Euphrates River

A woman and her six children were killed after their boat moving across the Euphrates River came under the US-led coalition air raid in Western Raqqa, media sources said.
The Arabic desk of RT reported that residents of Sho'ayb al-Zekr village West of al-Tabaqa city found bodies of the seven-member family whose boat was targeted and sunk in the Euphrates River as it was moving towards regions controlled by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Other sources added that the mother and her six children were killed after their boat sank near Debsi Faraj village West of al-Tabaqa.

Meantime, media activists also reported that another boat carrying over 40 people, mostly women and children, that had left ISIL-held regions near Debsi Faraj for SDF-controlled region was also targeted and sank.

There is yet no report on the fate of those ferrying across the river on the boat.

After formally calling off the longstanding U.S. policy of regime change in Syria, the Trump administration is sending signals of shifting its Syria policy under massive political pressure following a grisly chemical attack in the rebel-held province of Idlib.

The chemical attack allegedly took place on April 4. Dozens of civilians were reportedly killed, although many details are still unknown.

President Donald Trump has picked an economic advisor who believes in growing the nation’s economy by importing workers and consumers, and by expanding free-trade outsourcing, despite Trump’s “buy American, hire American” campaign promises.

Kevin Hassett is slated to become chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors if he is approved by the Senate’s banking committee. If Hassett is confirmed, that will be a win for the corporatist, business-first faction in Trump’s White House, which fights for influence in the Oval Office against the populist, America-first faction that helped Trump win the election in November.

Sunday's first blast happened at St. George Church in the Nile Delta town of Tanta, where at least 27 people were killed and 78 others wounded, officials said.

Television footage showed the inside of the church, where a large number of people gathered around what appeared to be lifeless, bloody bodies covered with papers.

Kremlin tells U.S. it's 'one step from war' as Trump warns he will hit Syria AGAIN after his attack on Russia's ally Assad triggers fears of World War Three

The Kremlin has warned the US it is ‘one step from war' over Syria - but the Trump administration hit back by saying it would be prepared to carry out airstrikes again.

In the first direct American raid on Bashar al Assad’s forces, President Trump authorised the firing of 59 cruise missiles at a military airfield.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev denounced the US for attacking ‘the legitimate government of Syria’ and for allegedly breaking international law without the approval of the UN.

Mr Medvedev said: ‘This military action is a clear indication of the US president’s extreme dependency on the views of the Washington establishment, the one that the new president strongly criticised in his inauguration speech.'

‘Soon after his victory, I noted that everything would depend on how soon Trump’s election promises would be broken by the existing power machine. It took only two and a half months.

Donald Trump carried out Syria missile strike ‘after being convinced by daughter Ivanka’

Trump has long opposed military intervention in Syria – both as a private citizen when he criticised Obama’s intervention in the region, and as President.

Trump has eased restrictions on the killing of civilians and is pummeling Yemen with drone strikes.

Acting Russian Ambassador to the UN Vladimir Safronkov, delivered a scathing indictment on the United States and its allies over the illegal missile strike on Syria.

He rightly accused the United States of violating international law in a totally unprovoked attack on a sovereign nation. He was careful to illustrate the difference between the illegal US presence in Syria fighting Salifism with the Kurds vis-a-vis an outright attack on Syrian forces who are doing the lion’s share of the fighting against terrorism. In order words things have gone from uncomfortable to totally unacceptable and totally counter-productive.

He correctly stated that the American war crime of undermines the peace process for Syria as well as stability in the country and wider region.

Syria: New U.S. Airstrike Support “Request Scheme” For Al-Qaeda

Al-Qaeda and its sidekick Ahra al-Sham welcomed the U.S. strikes and Abu Ivanka al Amriki on their side. The theocratic dictatorship of Saudi Arabia offered its full support as did its British creators.

The U.S. airstrike delivers a message to al-Qaeda. Whenever under military pressure al-Qaeda can now stage or fake a “chemical attack” and the U.S. will act to destroy its enemy, the Syrian government. Acts as the one last night are then direct military support by the U.S. on al-Qaeda’s request.

Trump is the third U.S. president in a row who promised less belligerence during his campaign only to deliver more after the election. The “democratic” veil of the U.S. oligarchic rule thus rips further apart.

Government Killing of Civilians by Gas

One point that needs to be made, but rarely if ever mentioned, is that in the supposed rationale for US attack on Syria to avenge/prevent claimed civilian deaths by government gas attacks, the US government itself has used similar weapons openly as recently as the FBI/ATF attack on the Branch Davidian compound near Waco Texas in the spring of 1993.

76 men, women and children died in this senseless military style assault which used highly lethal military CS gas as a primary weapon. CS is not a nerve agent and it doesn’t in normal concentrations cause immediate death. But it is highly flammable, persistent and designed to incapacitate targets by causing massive biological reactions including inability to breathe, massive tearing in the eyes, nose bleeds, etc.

45 times Trump said attacking Syria was a bad idea and might start World War III

President Donald Trump's administration ordered a missile attack on the Syrian government's al-Shayrat airbase near Homs on Thursday evening, taking a rapid about-face on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to a military conclusion in the wake of a chemical attack which killed scores and left hundreds injured.

But Trump has repeatedly spoken out against attacking the Syrian government, suggesting U.S. involvement in the conflict could make a bad problem worse and possibly lead to a global war.

In October, Trump blasted then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's position on Syria — that the U.S. military should take out al-Assad's airfields, the exact type of strike Trumphe ordered Thursday — by saying attacking a Russian-backed government could start World War III.

Prepare for Impact – This is the Beginning of the End for U.S. Empire

Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad.

Trump’s weaknesses have been identified and exploited, and he’s successfully been manipulated into neocon foreign policy like George W. Bush and Barack Obama before him.

I’ve spent much of the past several months warning about exactly what happened last night, but the die is now cast. There’s no turning back from the path we’re on.

U.S. leadership is an absolute joke and will drive this entire country into a brick wall in the years ahead. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Chucky Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, are you kidding me? They remind me of George Armstrong Custer, and we all know how that turned out.

Only 23 out of 59 US missiles hit target, damage is "laughable" - Syrian officer

This is a joke. The USN hit a salvage and repair yard. Maybe the US Military isn't behind Trump!

A military source from the Syrian Arab Republic has disclosed the details of the consequences of the US’ missile strike on Syria’s Sharat airfield:

"The Shayrat airfield has for six months already been used by the Syrian Army as a ‘dump’ where the Syrian Arab Republic’s armed forces' old and already decommissioned military equipment waits before being sent to scrap or dismantling for old parts.
According to experts, the total damage of the missile strike was no more than 3-5 million US dollars. At the same time, by using not so tricky math, it is clear that for recycling such old Syrian equipment the US Army lost around 90 million US dollars.

Serbian politician equates US attack on Syria with Washington’s actions in Yugoslavia

The US strike against Syria is reminiscent of the Americans’ actions in Yugoslavia in the late 1990s, leader of the Serbian Radical Party, Vojislav Seselj, told TASS on Friday. "The Americans’ behavior deserves condemnation. It is illegal and not based on the UN Security Council’s decision. It is very similar to the actions by the Clinton-era administration and its successors," the politician said when asked whether the current aggression is reminiscent of the situation in Yugoslavia in 1999. In his view, the United States it doing its utmost to deepen the global crisis. "All the Americans seek to do is to complicate relations in the modern world and deepen the crisis. As far as Syria goes, they have no intention of destroying the Islamic State (IS, terror group, outlawed in Russia - TASS). They would be happy, if IS controlled Syria rather than Assad’s government," Seselj explained. Eradicating the Islamic State is not a priority for the US at all.

US cyber attack shuts down Al-Masdar News for five hours

DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:45 P.M.) – On Friday afternoon, Al-Masdar News experienced its biggest hacker attack ever, leaving the website inaccessible to its readers for five hours.

Incidentally, the DDOS attack took place hours after it was revealed that ISIS launched an offensive shortly after US missiles struck Shayrat Airbase, grounding its airplanes at the Homs airfield.

The IT department said the massive DDOS attack could be traced exclusively back to the United States although it could not determine who was responsible for the hacking.

US Missile Strikes in Syria Cross Russian 'Red Lines'. How Will Putin Respond?

37 Missiles missed entirely. The 23 that did hit took out 6 old Mig-23's.From the drone footage it looks like at leats half of those landed in the grass at the edge of the runway. The US military as usual lies.

The Syrian airfield targeted by United States airstrikes early Friday was “almost completely destroyed,” a human rights group in the country said.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the missile attack damaged over a dozen hangars, a fuel depot and an air defense base. About 60 U.S. Tomahawk missiles hit the Shayrat air base, southeast of Homs, a small installation with two runways.

Is Trump Going to Commit the Next Great American Catastrophe in Syria?

Over half a million Syrians are dead. Half the population is displaced. Aerial bombardment by the Americans, the Russians, the Syrians and others continues to devastate Syria and Iraq. The Americans recently admitted to a major atrocity in Mosul, where 200 civilians have been killed. That attack did not seize the Security Council or bring forth fulminations from the Western press. Hypocrisy is central to the morals at the Security Council. This does not mean one should not be horrified by what has happened at Khan Shaykhun. But more than anything, the international community must urge a thorough investigation of these events before rushing either to a forensic judgment about what happened and to a response-particularly a military response?in retaliation. Sober heads need to prevail. War is rarely the answer. Particularly when we don?t as yet know the question.

US Attacks Syria: Scores of Missiles- Fired Russia Warns of 'Negative Consequences' for US Strikes

The US military is attacking Syria tonight, after talking up the idea of unilateral military intervention throughout the day. Preliminary reports are that more than 60 Tomahawk missiles have been fired against various targets inside Syria.

Russian deputy Ambassador Vladimir Safronkov warned earlier in the day of “negative consequences” if the US followed through on its threats to attack, and now that they have, the big issue is the potential fallout if any Russian military casualties are caused in the US strikes.

Evidence Calls Western Narrative About Syrian Chemical Attack Into Question

On April 3rd, 2017, an anti-Assad journalist tweeted that the next day he would be launching a media campaign to cover airstrikes on the Hama countryside, including the use of chemical weapons. It is not clear how the reporter was able to know that chemical weapons would be used an entire day before the attacks occurred.

Observers further noted that on April 1st, 2017, a doctor on the ground in Khan Sheikhoun, Dr. Shajul Islam, had received several shipments of gas masks in the days running up to the chemical incident. The revelations on Twitter fueled speculation that opposition figures were aware of the chemical attack days before it actually happened, contesting the narrative that the Syrian government was responsible.

NBC News broke the story: The U.S. military saw the aircraft on a radar and watched them drop the bombs, the officials said. The radar soon picked up the flashes and booms in the rebel-held area of Syria. […] One official said they believe there was a combination of two agents and while they do not believe one was chlorine, he would not say what they were.

Scott Adams: The Syrian Gas Attack Persuasion

According to the mainstream media – that has been wrong about almost everything for a solid 18 months in a row – the Syrian government allegedly bombed its own people with a nerve agent.

The reason the Assad government would bomb its own people with a nerve agent right now is obvious. Syrian President Assad – who has been fighting for his life for several years, and is only lately feeling safer – suddenly decided to commit suicide-by-Trump. Because the best way to make that happen is to commit a war crime against your own people in exactly the way that would force President Trump to respond or else suffer humiliation at the hands of the mainstream media.

Flashback - Afghanistan: MSF Staff Killed, Hospital Partially Destroyed in Kunduz

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) condemns in the strongest possible terms the horrific bombing of its hospital in Kunduz, which was full of staff and patients. MSF wishes to clarify that all parties to the conflict, including in Kabul and Washington, were clearly informed of the precise location (GPS Coordinates) of the MSF facilities in Kunduz, including the hospital, guesthouse, office and an outreach stabilization unit in Chardara northwest of Kunduz.

As it does in all conflict contexts, MSF communicated the precise locations of its facilities to all parties on multiple occasions over the past months, including most recently on September 29.

The bombing in Kunduz continued for more than 30 minutes after American and Afghan military officials in Kabul and Washington were first informed by MSF that its hospital was struck.

Flashback: One Day After Warning Russia of Civilian Casualties, the U.S. Bombs a Hospital in Afghanistan

Yesterday afternoon, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power marched to Twitter to proclaim: “We call on Russia to immediately cease attacks on Syrian oppo[sition and] civilians.” Along with that decree, she posted a statement from the U.S. and several of its closest authoritarian allies — including Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the U.K. — warning Russia that civilian casualties “will only fuel more extremism and radicalization.”

Early this morning, in the Afghan city of Kunduz, the U.S. dropped bombs on a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)). The airstrike killed at least nine of the hospital’s medical staff, and seriously injured dozens of patients. “Among the dead was the Afghan head of the hospital, Abdul Sattar,” reported the New York Times.

Jason Cone, MSF’s executive director, said the medical charity “condemns in the strongest possible terms the horrific bombing of its hospital in Kunduz full of staff and patients.”

Trump: Syria's Assad ‘crossed a lot of lines’ with gas attack

PATHETIC! Trump is a total phony. He is breaking Obama's records for lies!
WW3 here we come.

President Trump is signaling a more aggressive approach toward Syria, saying on Wednesday reports of a deadly gas attack by forces loyal to Bashar Assad had “crossed a lot of lines” and moved him to rethink his strategy.

At a joint press conference on Wednesday at the White House with Jordan’s King Abdullah II, Trump indicated that the Syrian leader had gone too far with an attack this week that killed dozens of his own people and injured scores more, including women and children.

“It crossed a lot of lines for me,” Trump said. “When you kill innocent children, innocent babies, little babies with a chemical gas that is so lethal that people were shocked to hear what gas it was, that crosses many lines beyond the red line. Many, many lines.”

Bahraini Media: Al Khalifah Regime Trying to Buy US Silence by Paying $8 Billion Deals in Just 2 Weeks

In just two weeks, over $8 billion military and industrial deals have been announced, amid a financial crisis that the country has been suffering due to its security and political situations and falling oil prices.

A US congressional source revealed last Wednesday that Donald Trump's administration informed the Congress of its plan to pursue the $5 billion sale to Bahrain of 19 Lockheed Martin F-16 aircraft and related equipment.

This deal was pulled back last year because of concerns that Bahrain had not made promised improvements to its human rights record. However, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker sees that "there are more effective ways to seek changes in partner policies than publicly conditioning weapons transfers in this manner."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The late President John Kennedy said it best: "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

Bahrain, lead by the tone-deaf, and cruelly autocratic Sunni Al-Khalifa monarchy, is unable to understand that suppression only works to a point.

And yes, I understand that Bahrain is home to the US Navy's 5th Fleet, but just as a matter of moral principal, it should be moved, to show the US government's displeasure with the consistent human rights abuses of its government and monarchy.

So far, the protests here have been relatively peaceful; but there will be a time when even calling in Saudi troops, as the Bahraini government did several years ago, to put down demonstrations, will have no effect, and we will find the people of Bahrain as adamantly anti-American as were the Iranian people after the over throw of the American Puppet, the Shah, in 79.

With their enabling of the Bahraini government, the US government and military are taking a calculated risk, which I am concerned, may ultimately blow up in their collective faces like a bad trick cigar.

US Army Investigator Accuses National Security Adviser McMaster of War Crimes in Iraq

Former commander in charge of US Army Military Police in Iraq says President Trump’s new National Security Adviser, Gen. H.R. McMaster, ‘ordered’ criminal abuse of hundreds of Iraqi detainees in 2005

“Detainees were abused at Tal Afar under orders and command and control of H.R. McMaster,” said Col. Arnaldo Claudio, a retired senior U.S. Military Police officer who served as 18th Airborne Corps Provost Marshal and Chief of Police of the Multinational Coalition Forces in Iraq in 2005.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word here please: If you are going to talk about "extreme vetting", can we begin with your Cabinet and Appointees?!?!?

This choice is not making you look good in the eyes of either the American public or the world, and the only two choices I can go with here, are that you didn't know, when you made the appointment, or did know, and didn't give a damn about these accusations.

Trump Reneges On Making Trade Deals Worker Friendly

By Stephen Lendman
4-4-17

In his first 10 weeks in office, he reneged on one promise after another.

Instead of draining the swamp, he filled it with neocon generals and billionaires.

He escalated ongoing wars, perhaps intends news ones, instead of curbing US interventionism as promised, along with prioritizing more US resources for long-neglected vital homeland needs.

His war on terror is phony like his predecessors, supporting what he claims to oppose, committing horrendous war crimes in multiple theaters.

He’s pro-war, pro-Wall Street, pro-Big Oil, pro-other corporate favorites, anti-beneficial social change, anti-protection of constitutional rights.

Flashback: Pentagon Reverses Position and Admits U.S. Troops Used White Phosphorus Against Iraqis in Fallujah

The U.S. government has now admitted its troops used white phosphorus as an incendiary weapon against Iraqis during the assault on Fallujah a year ago.

Chemical weapons experts say such attacks are in violation of international law banning the use of chemical weapons.

Peter Kaiser, of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, said, "Chemicals used against humans or animals that cause harm or death through the toxic properties of the chemical are considered chemical weapons."

White phosphorus is often compared to napalm because it combusts spontaneously when exposed to oxygen and can burn right through skin to the bone.

Flashback: CIA Files Prove America Helped Saddam as He Gassed Iran

The U.S. government may be considering military action in response to chemical strikes near Damascus. But a generation ago, America’s military and intelligence communities knew about and did nothing to stop a series of nerve gas attacks far more devastating than anything Syria has seen, Foreign Policy has learned.

In 1988, during the waning days of Iraq’s war with Iran, the United States learned through satellite imagery that Iran was about to gain a major strategic advantage by exploiting a hole in Iraqi defenses. U.S. intelligence officials conveyed the location of the Iranian troops to Iraq, fully aware that Hussein’s military would attack with chemical weapons, including sarin, a lethal nerve agent.

The intelligence included imagery and maps about Iranian troop movements, as well as the locations of Iranian logistics facilities and details about Iranian air defenses. The Iraqis used mustard gas and sarin prior to four major offensives in early 1988...

Flashback: America’s deadly gift: U.S. gave Saudi Arabia skin-burning white phosphorus. Questions remain about how it’s being used in Yemen

The Washington Post reported last week that a Saudi-led coalition that has waged war in Yemen for 18 months appears to be using a dangerous chemical called white phosphorus, supplied by the United States. A U.S. government official confirmed to the Post that a photo shared on social media appears to show U.S.-made white phosphorus, but did not trace it to a particular sale.

The way that this material is being used remains unclear, however. White phosphorus can be used in a nonlethal capacity to create smoke screens or signal to other troops. When used as a weapon, on the other hand, white phosphorous can burn through skin down to the bone, and essentially cannot be put out with water.

Flashback: Saudi Regime’s Use of Chemical Weapons against Yemen

The use of chemical weapons is another sign of an ongoing crisis in the Saudis’ camp. The Saudis believe that the more they hurt the Yemeni people, the easier it will be to defeat them but this strategy has proven to be counter-effective. Nonetheless, they are still following it in a bid to turn the course of the war to their advantage.

Although the use of chemical weapons against civilians is supposed to be a US-drawn red line, Saudi Arabia and its allies are using it freely. Amid international silence and lack of action against the Saudi-led aggression on Yemen, the red lines that are allegedly drawn to protect the innocent during wartime are being crossed blindly simply because there is no world power ready to hold Riyadh accountable for its actions.

Saudi warplanes used toxic gas during Saturday's strikes on markets and civilian areas in Sa'ada, leaving a number of people injured and dead, Iranian media reported.

Yemeni locals said that the Saudi warplanes used prohibited weapons in their airstrikes on the Fag Attan area in Southern Sana'a on Friday.

Those who were injured during the attacks said they have been suffering from suffocation, nausea and diarrhea since the start of the attacks.

The Saudi Arabia led coalition has been attacking Yemen for 24 days now to restore power to President Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led operation has so far killed over 2655 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children. The attacks have also left thousands of people injured.

How Netanyahu’s dirty tricks squad targets boycotts

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed cohorts of Israel loyalists in the United States by video link last week at the annual conference of Aipac, the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee. They should, he said, follow his government’s example and defend Israel on the "moral battlefield" against the growing threat of the international boycott divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. In Mr Netanyahu’s simple-minded language, support for Palestinian rights, and opposition to the settlements, is equivalent to "delegitimisation" of Israel.

The current obsession with BDS reflects a changing political environment for Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, BDS is the only language Tel Aviv understands, in terms of its stopping of the continued persecution/punishment of the Palestinian people, just because they are still breathing.

Other approaches have been tried, but none of them have been successful.

Netanyahu, despite his bellicose, hubristic belligerence, fully comprehends that a really bad economic situation in Israel, created through BDS, may be the ticket to get him out of office, and permanently.

And I would like to politely suggest that at this point in his premiership, he has absolutely outlived his usefulness to the Israeli people, both domestically and internationally.

Syrian people do not want Assad as leader: U.S. envoy to U.N

The United States does not believe that the Syrian people want President Bashar al-Assad as their leader any longer, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Monday.

Haley was asked about U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's remarks in the Turkish capital Ankara on Thursday, in which he said that Assad's status would be decided by the Syrian people.

She said it does not mean the United States will accept Assad participating in future elections.

"We have no love for Assad. We've made that very clear. We think that he has been a hindrance to peace for a long time. He's a war criminal. What he's done to his people is nothing more than disgusting," she said.

True Lies: US Spins Reports to Downplay Responsibility for Civilian Massacres

At the Pentagon regime’s department of lies, damn lies, and fake statistics, it is better to offer no excuse than a bad one. The cabal of US war criminals are still under the illusion that if they tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed by the international community. Take, for instance, high civilian casualties in Iraq and Syria, or in Yemen and Afghanistan. That the Pentagon has a habit of dramatically undercounting the number of civilians it has killed in these countries is increasingly itself an understatement. With heavy documentation of scores of civilians being killed in the month of February alone, the Pentagon is desperate to cut out its work for keeping this month’s civilian death report low. But it is wishful thinking.

‘Maybe worse than Cold War’: Kremlin spokesman on US-Russia relations

When asked if current US-Russia relations could be described as “a new Cold War,” Peskov was not at all ambiguous.

“New Cold War? Well, maybe even worse,” the Russian President’s spokesman told ABC News. Addressing repeated claims that Moscow somehow meddled in the 2016 US election, Peskov blasted the allegations as libelous.

Apologies for torture seem to be the hardest words

Despite clear evidence that they are complicit in your torture, none of them is ever held to account. Instead, they receive promotions, act as media consultants, and fearlessly await a thick pension at the end of their bloodstained careers. The immunity they enjoy in your case is the same immunity they are entitled to should they set someone else up for torture. After all, legislation on the books -- as well as their well-tailored self-image as do-gooders on the global stage -- grants them a free pass for whatever they do.

A sharp rise in the number of civilians reported killed in U.S.-led airstrikes in Iraq and Syria is spreading panic, deepening mistrust and triggering accusations that the United States and its partners may be acting without sufficient regard for lives of noncombatants.

The increase comes as local ground forces backed by air support from a U.S.-led coalition close in on the Islamic State’s two main urban bastions — Raqqa in Syria and Mosul in Iraq.

What Is Trump Thinking? President Gives CIA New Authority To Authorize Drone Strikes

By Brandon Turbeville

The testy nature of the public relationship between Donald Trump and the CIA is well known with the agency putting forth a number of unproven and laughably ridiculous assertions that Trump is working with Russia as well as the President publicly criticizing the intelligence community for these claims. More serious, however, is the fact that the CIA monitored and essentially ousted former National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn.

So with Trump engaging in a relatively public and behind-the-scenes war with the CIA, it may come as a surprise that Trump has given the agency even more authority to conduct secret drone strikes...

Despite Campaign Promises, Trump Set To Outdo Obama On Military Adventurism

When asked about Trump attitudes toward war, MIT professor and renowned linguist and political analyst Noam Chomsky told MintPress News that the idea that he was an anti-war candidate “was based on his criticisms of the Iraq and Libya attacks (which, contrary to his lies, he supported) and his ambiguous statements about reducing tensions with Russia – a good thing, if he meant it. But his actual policies are extremely dangerous.”

“[This includes] the sharp increase in the military budget, the weakening of restrictions on drone strikes, and the wild charges about Iran,” Chomsky said, adding that what really worries those who pay attention to these issues “is his megalomania and unpredictability…we know how someone who goes berserk over minor slights might react in a moment of crisis.”

Defense Secretary Seeks Deeper US Involvement in Yemen War

Defense Secretary James Mattis is said to be pushing for the White House to remove all restrictions, placed during the waning months of President Obama’s presidency, on US military support for the Saudi invasion of Yemen, seeking deeper direct US involvement in fighting the Yemeni Shi’ites.

Mattis is said to be pushing National Security Adviser HR McMaster to agree that US support would combat the “common threat” the US and Saudi Arabia face in Yemen, which appears to be continued Shi’ite autonomy in the northern half of the country.

The US, of course, has already been directly involved in the Saudi war in Yemen from the beginning, providing in-air refueling for Saudi warplanes and participating in a naval blockade that has caused massive food shortages across northern Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sec-Def Mattis, a word please: by participating in the Saudi genocide in Yemen, which has involved the assassination of wide swathes of civilians, including children; starving Yemeni children to death with malnutrition from the port blockades, and the poisoning of children in the womb through the Saudi's use of depleted uranium weapons, the United States government is complicit in its war crimes.

Mike and I are way too poor, and too old, to be accepted as a citizen of any other country at this stage in our lives; because right now, if Mike and I could, we would!

That being said, I find it morally reprehensible that both you, and President Trump, have absolutely no qualm of conscience about continuing to aid and abet these horrific acts on the part of the Saudi military.

Armor Piercing, Toxic Shocking – the US’s Ongoing Depleted Uranium Manifesto

February 28th, 2016 marks the 25th anniversary of the end of Operation Desert Storm, the combat phase of the Gulf War, the first war with Iraq. This conflict was a turning point in US and world history, but the ensuing wars in Afghanistan and Iraq turned these war theaters into toxic waste lands. Desert Storm ushered in the widespread use of depleted uranium (DU) ammunition, a topic that few official spokespersons want to talk on the record. Now Syria is fast becoming the latest toxic battlefield where the “real weapons” of mass destruction are being deployed. Even though the Pentagon has professed a reversal of decision on the use of DU munitions, the clear cut evidence still does not support any real effort to reduce their indiscriminate use. It should be noted that US and UK forces during Desert Storm, openly acknowledged having fired some 286,000 kilograms of DU shells in between 1990 and 1991.

Increase in Infant deformities in Yemen suggests USA/UK has supplied Saudi with depleted uranium weapons

Doctors in Yemen have been warning about the rise in stillbirths and deformities as a result of the war for some time.

“Fetal malformations could occur due to several reasons, including mothers’ diseases and subsequent viral infection of the faction and/or poor nutrition,” Wafa al-Mamari, an obstetrician at al-Rahma Hospital in northern Sana’a, told Press TV in July.

Depleted Uranium: What we know, what we don’t know, and what we must find out

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apes have a habit of flinging their poop on their enemies.

Depleted Uranium is just the high-tech version of this same behavior.

American Genocide with DU Deforms Afghanistan's Unborn Children

The staff of American USSR has learned in a book by Dr. Mohammad Daud Miraki and reported with a graphic video of deformed babies at Press TV that The United States' use of radioactive munitions in Afghanistan has destroyed the people's health and mutilated the genetic future of the country, Press TV reports.
Dr. Mohammad Daud Miraki, the author of Afghanistan After Democracy: The Untold Story Through Photographic Images, told Press TV's Kabul correspondent on Monday that the US has committed horrific crimes against the people of Afghanistan.

He said the US used depleted uranium in the country and Afghan babies were being born with severe deformities.

Exposure to depleted uranium causes genetic damage, birth defects, cancer, diabetes, immune system damage, and other serious health problems.

Depleted Uranium trans-generational curse

“It’s actually very difficult to decontaminate an area that’s been affected by depleted uranium, because it spreads so uniformly across the area and in the form of these very fine particles.

“So, it’s not a case of going somewhere and finding something that’s radioactive and removing it.

“You can do that, but the thing that are causing the problem is the inhalation of these dusts. And once the dust is created, it goes all over the place.

“The damage that’s been done to the DNA, you can’t clean that up, it’s already there.
“The continuing level of congenital malformations and cancer presumably is an indicator of the fact that the genome of these people has been affected, and that’s like a sort of trans-generational curse that will go on for a very long time, for generations,”

Daesh, Creature of the West

According to Saudi intelligence, Daesh was invented by the US government – in Camp Bacca, near the Kuwait border, as many will remember — to essentially finish off the Shiite-majority Nouri al-Maliki government in Baghdad.

It didn’t happen this way, of course. Then, years later, in the summer of 2014, Daesh routed the Iraqi Army on its way to conquer Mosul. The Iraqi Army fled. Daesh operatives then annexed ultra-modern weapons that took US instructors from six to twelve months to train the Iraqis in and…surprise! Daesh incorporated the weapons in their arsenals in 24 hours.

In the end, Shea frankly admitted to the source that Gen David Petraeus, conductor of the much-lauded 2007 surge, had trained these Sunnis now part of Daesh in Anbar province in Iraq.

US Will Keep Ground Troops in Libya

In a press briefing at the Pentagon today, African Command leader Gen. Thomas Waldhauser announced that the US intends to keep ground troops in Libya for the foreseeable future to support “friendly forces,” and to “degrade” the ISIS forces that remain in the country.

Waldhauser did not specify how many US troops are in Libya now, or how many will stay, but did estimate that there were less than 200 ISIS fighters left in Libya. The US had announced the end of the anti-ISIS campaign in Libya back in December, but never fully withdrew from the country.

The US forces were in Libya trying to help the “unity” government defeat ISIS in the city of Sirte. US officials repeatedly claimed the city was totally surrounded, and that no ISIS fighters would get away, though when the fighting finally ended, a substantial number of ISIS fighters did in fact get away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this is "military-speak" for the reality that the US government is never leaving Libya because of the oil and the oil pipelines.

Trump’s son-in-law funds Israeli settlement projects

Big conflict of interest for Kushner and Trump!

In recent years, the parents of Jared Kushner, the son-in-law and trusted confidant of US President-elect Donald Trump, have donated tens of thousands of dollars to organisations and institutions located in illegal West Bank settlements, according to their tax forms.

Kushner’s family donates a few million dollars a year on average to charitable causes through the Charles and Seryl Kushner Foundation, which Jared sits on the board of along with his brother and two sisters. The foundation was established in 1997.Another key beneficiary of Kushner charity in Israel is the Israeli army. Between 2011 and 2013, the foundation donated a total of $315,000 to Friends of the IDF, on whose board Jared serves.

From the conclusion:

Notably, there were two types of nuclear scenarios with which The Powers That Be in my dreamworld had not seen fit to torture me, and with which I therefore had not had the misfortune to have had any familiarity. One of them is the aftereffects, environmental and political, of a modern-day First Strike by the United States....

FEDERAL JURY RULES IN FAVOR OF TORTURED TO DEATH ARMY VETERAN. FAMILY AWARDED $10 MILLION (GRAPHIC VIDEO)

A federal jury has ruled in favor of the estate of an Army veteran who died on the floor of a jail in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Elliott Williams broke his neck and was lying naked and paralyzed for 51 hours. The county is ordered to pay the family $10 million.

On Monday, the jury returned after deliberating for around 10 hours and found that Williams’ civil rights were violated by both the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office and former Sheriff Stanley Glanz, who was ordered to pay the family an additional $250,000 in punitive damages from his own pocket.

Williams, an Army veteran, was arrested by Owasso police after suffering a mental breakdown. His only alleged crime was a misdemeanor for obstruction, but Williams died in custody before the formal charges could be filed.

During the first day of the trial, jurors saw the last 51 hours of William’s life captured by the jail’s surveillance cameras.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whoever was involved in this horrific act against this Vet should be spending the rest of their lives in jail, period, end of discussion.

Did The U.S. Really Bomb A Mosque In Syria? Many Factors At Play In Latest Reports

By Brandon Turbeville

If new reports are accurate, the Trump administration is now doing all it can to not only continue Obama’s war crimes in Syria but apparently to do so in the most visible fashion possible. Only a few days after mobilizing U.S. troops in Northern Syria near Manbij, the United States has allegedly launched airstrikes in al-Jineh under the guise of targeting terrorist organization, Ahrar al-Sham, an al-Qaeda affiliate. Instead of hitting terrorists, however, reports are suggesting that the U.S. simply blew up a mosque, killing around forty civilians...

Palestinian amputee, 14, recalls detention by Israeli forces: 'I wasn't afraid of being hit'

More troops arrived. Issa’s hands were finally shackled behind his back by force with three plastic handcuffs, and he was blindfolded. Two other, older boys were also arrested with him. Issa denies throwing stones at the soldiers. He says he was holding the bag with the pitas before he was arrested and that he was on his way back to his grandmother’s house.

Back on the street, says Issa, a soldier kicked his leg, wrenching loose the prosthesis. Issa fell to the ground, hands tied behind his back. The soldier recoiled in fright at the sight of the false leg. Issa somehow managed to get back up on his one good leg. Other soldiers had arrived in the meantime. One of them, Issa relates, asked him, “What happened to you?” To which he replied, “My leg left me.” “Why didn’t you say so before?” the soldier said and slapped him. The soldiers didn’t give him a chance to explain that he was disabled, Issa says.

Israeli Politician, Cabinet Minister Says Next War With Lebanon Should Target Civilian Infrastructure

By Brandon Turbeville

Recently elected Lebanese President Michel Aoun visited Cairo in February where he uttered words previously treated as an open secret by preceding presidents; namely, that Hezbollah is indeed a major part of the defense of the country. While other presidents have tended to skirt the issue, Aoun essentially acknowledged the close relationship between Lebanon the state and Hezbollah the militia. The relationship between Hezbollah and the Lebanese state is apparent for all to see, of course, with Hezbollah acting as the major deterrent to Israel’s aggression...

UN's food agency says over 60 percent of Yemenis face famine

The UN food agency has warned that over half of Yemenis are on the brink of famine as the Arab country continues to be hit by relentless Saudi airstrikes.

In a report issued on Wednesday, the World Food Programme (WFP) said that 60 percent of Yemenis, or 17 million people, were in “crisis” or “emergency” food situations.

"If humanitarian actors do not access all the people in need by the coming months, the situation may deteriorate dramatically," the report said.
The WFP warned that the provinces of Ta'izz and Hudaydah risked sinking into famine if they did not receive more aid.
