Invasion Of Syria Underway, Slow Creep To WW3

Armed Groups Inside Syria: Prelude to a US-NATO Intervention?

"Russia and China have vetoed the UN Security Council draft resolution on Syria pointing to the existence of armed groups involved in the killing of civilians as well as terrorist acts.

These armed groups have been involved since the outset of the "protest movement" in Daraa, southern Syria, in March 2011.

The statement of Russia's envoy to the UN Viktor Churkin remains within the realm of international diplomacy. It does not mention who is behind these armed groups and the fact that NATO is supporting an armed insurrection.

"Churkin said that resolution's Western co-sponsors had not included key proposals such as isolating the Syrian opposition from violent extremist groups or a call to arms for other states to use their influence to prevent such alliances". (Russia Today, February 4, 2012)

Ironically, Russia's decision to veto the resolution is consistent with the report of the Arab League's Observer Mission to Syria, which confirms the existence of an "Armed Entity".

Unexpectedly, however, neither Washington nor the Arab League, which commissioned the Observer Mission to Syria in the first place, have accepted the interim report presented by the AL Mission.

Why? Because the Mission --integrated by independent observers from Arab League countries-- provides a balanced and objective assessment of what is happening on the ground inside Syria. It does not serve as a mouthpiece for Washington and the governments of Arab states.

It points to the existence of an "Armed Entity"; it acknowledges that "armed opposition groups" including the Syria Free Army are involved in criminal and terrorist acts.

"In some zones, this armed entity reacted by attacking Syrian security forces and citizens, causing the Government to respond with further violence. In the end, innocent citizens pay the price for those actions with life and limb.

"In Homs, Idlib and Hama, the Observer Mission witnessed acts of violence being committed against Government forces and civilians that resulted in several deaths and injuries. Examples of those acts include the bombing of a civilian bus, killing eight persons and injuring others, including women and children, and the bombing of a train carrying diesel oil. In another incident in Homs, a police bus was blown up, killing two police officers. A fuel pipeline and some small bridges were also bombed. "

"Such incidents include the bombing of buildings, trains carrying fuel, vehicles carrying diesel oil and explosions targeting the police, members of the media and fuel pipelines. Some of those attacks have been carried out by the Free Syrian Army and some by other armed opposition groups."

While the Mission does not identify the foreign powers behind "the armed entity", its report dispels the mainstream media lies and fabrications, used by Washington to push for "regime change" in Syria.

The AL Mission report also intimates that political pressure was exerted by officials of Arab League states to unreservedly support Washington's political stance.

Moreover, the Mission was also pressured into upholding the lies and fabrications of the mainstream media, which have been used to demonize the government of Bashar al Assad:

"Some observers reneged on their duties and broke the oath they had taken. They made contact with officials from their countries and gave them exaggerated accounts of events. Those officials consequently developed a bleak and unfounded picture of the situation."

Nolo thanks for this background on the Syrian situation. When will the nightmare end? When will the "white hats" rise up and stop the killing? Did you watch Bill Wood's video about his decade as a Navy Seal firing million and a half dollar Tomahawk missiles into little homes in isolated villeges in Northern Iraq? Did you watch him telling about how his problems really began when he re-directed a missile into a hillside instead of slamming it into hundreds of rescue workers?

It is THIS kind of testament that will be the game-changer, IMO.

It's sickening.
I'm afraid the real gamechanger will be when the immense region wide and nuclear war begins in earnest. I've seen a lot of indications that we only have about a month left before it starts. We're all going to die an early death from Fukushima, but I hope you're as prepared as possible to be as comfortable as possible when the mushrooms start.

Re are two links I found recently.

I have always believed the "tsunami" after the "earthquake" was man-made. The late great Joe Vialls would have had a field day with that one.
