EXPORTING DEMONOCRACY

August 30, 2013

The war criminals in Washington and other Western capitals are determined to maintain their lie that the Syrian government used chemical weapons. Having failed in efforts to intimidate the UN chemical inspectors in Syria, Washington has demanded that UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon withdraw the chemical weapons inspectors before they can assess the evidence and make their report. The UN Secretary General stood up to the Washington war criminals and rejected their demand. However, as with Iraq, Washington’s decision to commit aggression against Syria is not based on any facts.

The US and UK governments have revealed none of the “conclusive evidence” they claim to have that the Syrian government used chemical weapons. Listening to their voices, observing their body language, and looking into their eyes, it is completely obvious that John Kerry and his British and German puppets are lying through their teeth. This is a far more shameful situation than the massive lies that former Secretary of State Colin Powell told the UN about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. Colin Powell claims that he was deceived by the White House and did not know that he was lying. Kerry and the British, French, and German puppets know full well that they are lying.

The face that the West presents to the world is the brazen face of a liar.

Washington and its British and French puppet governments are poised to yet again reveal their criminality. The image of the West as War Criminal is not a propaganda image created by the West’s enemies, but the portrait that the West has painted of itself.

The UK Independent reports that over this past week-end Obama, Cameron, and Hollande agreed to launch cruise missile attacks against the Syrian government within two weeks despite the lack of any authorization from the UN and despite the absence of any evidence in behalf of Washington’s claim that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons against the Washington-backed “rebels”, largely US supported external forces, seeking to overthrow the Syrian government.

Indeed, one reason for the rush to war is to prevent the UN inspection that Washington knows would disprove its claim and possibly implicate Washington in the false flag attack by the “rebels,” who assembled a large number of children into one area to be chemically murdered with the blame pinned by Washington on the Syrian government.

Another reason for the rush to war is that Cameron, the UK prime minister, wants to get the war going before the British parliament can block him for providing cover for Obama’s war crimes the way that Tony Blair provided cover for George W. Bush, for which Blair was duly rewarded. What does Cameron care about Syrian lives when he can leave office into the waiting arms of a $50 million fortune.

The Syrian government, knowing that it is not responsible for the chemical weapons incident, has agreed for the UN to send in chemical inspectors to determine the substance used and the method of delivery. However, Washington has declared that it is “too late” for UN inspectors and that Washington accepts the self-serving claim of the al Qaeda affiliated “rebels” that the Syrian government attacked civilians with chemical weapons.

In an attempt to prevent the UN chemical inspectors who arrived on the scene from doing their work, the inspectors were fired upon by snipers in “rebel” held territory and forced off site, although a later report from RT says the inspectors have returned to the site to conduct their inspection.

The corrupt British government has declared that Syria can be attacked without UN authorization, just as Serbia and Libya were militarily attacked without UN authorization. In other words, the Western democracies have already established precedents for violating international law. “International law? We don’t need no stinking international law!” The West knows only one rule: Might is Right. As long as the West has the Might, the West has the Right.

In a response to the news report that the US, UK, and France are preparing to attack Syria, the Russian Foreign Minister, Lavrov, said that such unilateral action is a “severe violation of international law,” and that the violation was not only a legal one but also an ethical and moral violation. Lavrov referred to the lies and deception used by the West to justify its grave violations of international law in military attacks on Serbia, Iraq, and Libya and how the US government used preemptive moves to undermine every hope for peaceful settlements in Iraq, Libya, and Syria.

Once again Washington has preempted any hope of peaceful settlement. By announcing the forthcoming attack, the US destroyed any incentive for the “rebels” to participate in the peace talks with the Syrian government. On the verge of these talks taking place, the “rebels” now have no incentive to participate as the West’s military is coming to their aid.

In his press conference Lavrov spoke of how the ruling parties in the US, UK, and France stir up emotions among poorly informed people that, once aroused, have to be satisfied by war. This, of course, is the way the US manipulated the public in order to attack Afghanistan and Iraq. But the American public is tired of the wars, the goal of which is never made clear, and has grown suspicious of the government’s justifications for more wars.

A Reuters/Ipsos poll finds that “Americans strongly oppose U.S. intervention in Syria’s civil war and believe Washington should stay out of the conflict even if reports that Syria’s government used deadly chemicals to attack civilians are confirmed.” However, Obama could not care less that only 9 percent of the public supports his warmongering. As former president Jimmy Carter recently stated, “America has no functioning democracy.” It has a police state in which the executive branch has placed itself above all law and the Constitution.

This police state is now going to commit yet another Nazi-style war crime of unprovoked aggression. At Nuremberg the Nazis were sentenced to death for precisely the identical actions being committed by Obama, Cameron, and Hollande. The West is banking on might, not right, to keep it out of the criminal dock.

The US, UK, and French governments have not explained why it matters whether people in the wars initiated by the West are killed by explosives made of depleted uranium or with chemical agents or any other weapon. It was obvious from the beginning that Obama was setting up the Syrian government for attack. Obama demonized chemical weapons–but not nuclear “bunker busters” that the US might use on Iran. Then Obama drew a red line, saying that the use of chemical weapons by the Syrians was such a great crime that the West would be obliged to attack Syria. Washington’s UK puppets, William Hague and Cameron, have just repeated this nonsensical claim. The final step in the frame-up was to orchestrate a chemical incident and blame the Syrian government.

What is the West’s real agenda? This is the unasked and unanswered question. Clearly, the US, UK, and French governments, which have displayed continuously their support for dictatorial regimes that serve their purposes, are not the least disturbed by dictatorships. They brand Assad a dictator as a means of demonizing him for the ill-informed Western masses. But Washington, UK, and France support any number of dictatorial regimes, such as the ones in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and now the military dictatorship in Egypt that is ruthlessly killing Egyptians without any Western government speaking of invading Egypt for “killing its own people.”

Clearly also, the forthcoming Western attack on Syria has nothing whatsoever to do with bringing “freedom and democracy” to Syria any more than freedom and democracy were reasons for the attacks on Iraq and Libya, neither of which gained any “freedom and democracy.”

The Western attack on Syria is unrelated to human rights, justice or any of the high sounding causes with which the West cloaks its criminality.

The Western media, and least of all the American presstitutes, never ask Obama, Cameron, or Hollande what the real agenda is. It is difficult to believe than any reporter is sufficiently stupid or gullible to believe that the agenda is bringing “freedom and democracy” to Syria or punishing Assad for allegedly using chemical weapons against murderous thugs trying to overthrow the Syrian government.

Of course, the question wouldn’t be answered if asked. But the act of asking it would help make the public aware that more is afoot than meets the eye. Originally, the excuse for Washington’s wars was to keep Americans safe from terrorists. Now Washington is endeavoring to turn Syria over to jihad terrorists by helping them to overthrow the secular, non-terrorist Assad government. What is the agenda behind Washington’s support of terrorism?

Perhaps the purpose of the wars is to radicalize Muslims and, thereby, destabilize Russia and even China. Russia has large populations of Muslims and is bordered by Muslim countries. Even China has some Muslim population. As radicalization spreads strife into the only two countries capable of being an obstacle to Washington’s world hegemony, Western media propaganda and the large number of US financed NGOs, posing as “human rights” organizations, can be counted on by Washington to demonize the Russian and Chinese governments for harsh measures against “rebels.”

Another advantage of the radicalization of Muslims is that it leaves former Muslim countries in long-term turmoil or civil wars, as is currently the case in Iraq and Libya, thus removing any organized state power from obstructing Israeli purposes.

Secretary of State John Kerry is working the phones using bribes and threats to build acceptance, if not support, for Washington’s war crime-in-the-making against Syria.

Washington is driving the world closer to nuclear war than it ever was even in the most dangerous periods of the Cold War. When Washington finishes with Syria, the next target is Iran. Russia and China will no longer be able to fool themselves that there is any system of international law or restraint on Western criminality. Western aggression is already forcing both countries to develop their strategic nuclear forces and to curtail the Western-financed NGOs that pose as “human rights organizations,” but in reality comprise a fifth column that Washington can use to destroy the legitimacy of the Russian and Chinese governments.

Russia and China have been extremely careless in their dealings with the United States. Essentially, the Russian political opposition is financed by Washington. Even the Chinese government is being undermined. When a US corporation opens a company in China, it creates a Chinese board on which are put relatives of the local political authorities. These boards create a conduit for payments that influence the decisions and loyalties of local and regional party members. The US has penetrated Chinese universities and intellectual attitudes. The Rockefeller University is active in China as is Rockefeller philanthropy. Dissenting voices are being created that are arrayed against the Chinese government. Demands for “liberalization” can resurrect regional and ethnic differences and undermine the cohesiveness of the national government.

Once Russia and China realize that they are riven with American fifth columns, isolated diplomatically, and outgunned militarily, nuclear weapons become the only guarantor of their sovereignty. This suggests that nuclear war is likely to terminate humanity well before humanity succumbs to global warming or rising national debts.

MACCHIAVELLI RELOADED – CAPITOLO UNDICESIMO

August 30, 2013

Il Consiglio di Stato accentuerà il potere del regnante. Nella sua posizione il corpo legislativo ufficiale sarà, in certo qual modo, un comitato per la promulgazione dei comandi del regnante. Eccovi dunque un programma della nuova costituzione che prepariamo al mondo. Faremo le leggi, definiremo i diritti costituzionali, li amministreremo con questi mezzi: 1) decreti della camera legislativa, suggeriti dal Presidente; 2) ordini generici, ordini del Senato e del Consiglio di Stato, e decisioni del Consiglio dei Ministri; 3) quando il momento opportuno sarà giunto, promoveremo un colpo di Stato. Ora, avendo abbozzato il nostro piano d’azione, discuteremo quei particolari che potranno esserci necessari allo scopo di compiere nell’organismo della macchina statale, la rivoluzione nel senso che ho già indicato. Colla parola “particolari” voglio indicare la libertà di stampa, il diritto di formare delle associazioni, la libertà di religione, l’elezione dei rappresentanti del popolo e moltissimi altri diritti che dovranno svanire dalla vita quotidiana dell’uomo. Se non spariranno del tutto, dovranno subire un cambiamento fondamentale dal giorno seguente l’annuncio della nuova costituzione. Prima di quel momento preciso non sarebbe per noi utile di annunciare tutti i cambiamenti che faremo e per la seguente ragione: tutti i cambiamenti percettibili potrebbero riuscire pericolosi in qualunque altro momento se fossero applicati per forza esigendone severamente ed indistintamente l’esecuzione, perché ciò potrebbe esasperare il popolo, che paventerebbe nuovi cambiamenti nelle medesime direzioni. D’altra parte, se i cambiamenti dovessero implicare delle tolleranze ancora maggiori, il popolo direbbe che riconosciamo i nostri errori e ciò potrebbe menomare il vanto di infallibilità del nuovo potere. Il popolo potrebbe anche dire che siamo stati spaventati e quindi obbligati a cedere; e se così fosse, nessuno ci sarebbe mai riconoscente perché il popolo ritiene di aver il diritto di ottenere sempre nuove concessioni. Sarebbe enormemente pericoloso per il prestigio della nuova costituzione, che l’una o l’altra di queste impressioni si facesse strada nella mente del pubblico.

Per noi è essenziale, che dal primo momento della nuova proclamazione il popolo, mentre soffrirà ancora le conseguenze del cambiamento repentino e sarà in uno stato di terrore e di indecisione, realizzi che siamo così potenti, così invulnerabili, e così pieni di forza, che in nessun caso prenderemo in considerazione i suoi interessi. Faremo capire al popolo, che non solo non ci daremo nessun pensiero delle sue opinioni e dei suoi desideri, ma altresì che saremo pronti in qualunque momento ed in qualunque luogo a sopprimere con una mano forte qualsiasi espressione o accenno di. opposizione. Faremo sì che il popolo capisca che essendoci impadroniti di tutto quello che desideravamo non gli permetteremo mai, in nessun modo, di partecipare al nostro potere. Ed allora esso, preso dallo sgomento, chiuderà gli occhi su tutto ed aspetterà pazientemente lo svolgersi di ulteriori avvenimenti.

I Gentili sono come un branco di pecore, noi siamo i lupi. Sapete cosa fanno le pecore quando i lupi entrano nell’ovile? Chiudono gli occhi. A questo saranno costretti anche i Gentili, perché prometteremo loro la restituzione di tutte le loro libertà dopo che avremo soggiogato i nemici del mondo e costretti tutti i partiti a sottomettersi. Non occorre che vi dica quanto tempo dovranno aspettare per riavere queste loro libertà!

Per qual motivo fummo indotti a inventare la nostra politica e instillarla nelle menti dei Gentili? Noi instillammo in essi questa politica senza permetter loro di comprenderne l’intimo significato. Che cosa ci spinse ad adottare questa linea di condotta? Questo: che noi, razza dispersa, non potevamo, come tale, conseguire il nostro scopo con mezzi diretti, ma soltanto con mezzi indiretti, subdoli e fraudolenti. Questa fu la vera causa ed origine della nostra organizzazione massonica, che questi porci di Gentili non riescono a scandagliare e di cui non sospettano neppure le mire. Noi li prendiamo come lo zimbello delle nostre numerose logge, le quali hanno l’apparenza di essere puramente massoniche, allo scopo di gettare la polvere negli occhi dei loro camerati. Per grazia di Dio il suo Popolo prediletto fu sparpagliato, ma questa dispersione, che sembrò al mondo la nostra debolezza, dimostrò di essere la nostra forza, che ci ha ora condotto al limitare della Sovranità Universale.
Ci rimane da costruire ancora poco su queste fondamenta, per raggiungere la nostra mèta.

NOR DID THEY REPENT OF THEIR MURDERS

‘But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short.”

===========================================

Speaking to AsiaNews, Metropolitan Hilarion Alfeyev of Volokolamsk, head of the Russian Orthodox Foreign Affairs Department, condemned threats of NATO intervention without a UN mandate.

As a Western military intervention against the Syrian government appears increasingly likely, he expressed “strong concern” about possible developments of the crisis, following unproven American charges that the Syrian government used chemical weapons against civilians. (Other sources suggest that the sarin gas employed was provided to the terrorists by a nearby foreign power).

Metropolitan Hilarion said, “Once again, as was the case in Iraq, the USA is acting as an international executioner”. Speaking to AsiaNews, he strongly criticised the American position, calling it “completely one-sided”.

He went on to say, “Without the endorsement of the UN, they want to decide the fate of a whole country of millions of inhabitants. Once again, they’ll sacrifice thousands of lives on the altar of an imaginary democracy; first of all, Christians, about whose fate no one cares. They’re at risk of becoming hostages to the situation and the main victims of radical extremist forces, who, with the help of the USA, will come to power. The international community must do everything to avoid events developing in this direction”.

P.S. – Non lo si nota a livello internazionale, poiche’ occupa il suo solito posto defilato, ma anche il nostro governo fa parte dei volenterosi carnefici di verita’ e giustizia. Basta aguzzare un pochino la vista… sta li’ dietro, a reggere la coda del vestito dell’imperatore!
