In 2016, millions of Americans voted for Donald Trump because he said he would end useless, perpetual wars on behalf of an intellectually dead and financially bankrupt Anglo-American system, the imperium which dates to the immediate aftermath of World War II. That system, centered in Wall Street and the City of London, has ripped off the world, and destroyed the once great U.S. economy, a fact which became completely evident to the sentient when the system crashed in 2008. Donald Trump sought better relations with China, now emerging as the world's most powerful economy, and Putin's Russia. Trump's determination to establish decent relations with Russia and China and that determination alone, set into motion the hellish coup against the President, led by the British and those many useful idiots in our elites who are in their thrall.
That coup, whose manifesto was the fake "dirty dossier" on Donald Trump authored by MI6's Christopher Steele and paid for by Hillary Clinton, was on its last legs when Britain began its present offensive. Senators Charles Grassley and Lindsay Graham had referred Christopher Steele to the United States Department of Justice for criminal prosecution and patriots in Congress were pursuing a genuine effort to identify and prosecute those responsible for the coup against our President. Then, on March 4, 2018, a Russian who spied for Britain, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter were allegedly poisoned in Salisbury, England. Skripal runs in the same British espionage circles associated with Christopher Steele.
Prime Minister Teresa May immediately pronounced to the world that Russia was behind the attack but has never ever produced any proof for any of her bellicose statements. President Trump was bum rushed by his traitorous advisors, including H.R. McMaster, who throughout his military career was a captive of Britain's International Institute of Strategic Affairs, into supporting Britain's completely unfounded claims. The message to the President from our traitors is clear, join us in the march to war and maybe, maybe, we will let up with the coup.
Ultimately, Britain's own chemical weapons experts at Porton Down refused to say that the agent used on the Skripals was manufactured in Russia, despite the evidence-free claims of Teresa May and her insane Foreign Minister, Boris Johnson. Obvious doubts had already been voiced by several European countries who abstained from Britain's call to war. Among the facts considered: The deadly nerve agent described by May would have immediately killed Skripal and his daughter. Yet, both are alive and out of critical condition.
Accounts of where it was administered have varied, most recently it was said to have been smeared on the front door handle of Skripal's home. Yet, Skripal somehow managed to leave the house for some hours, walking around the village, drinking and eating at restaurants until he suddenly fell ill. The formula for the alleged poison had been widely published by its Russian inventor, a dissident now living in the United States. Now, with that hoax disintegrating, we are told that the Skripals and all possible evidence in the case is being disappeared. According to the British press, they will be put in a CIA Witness Protection Program. Their house and every alleged crime scene involved in this hoax are being bull-dozed and destroyed. No possibility of an actual investigation of this hoax is to be left open.
Despite voicing support for Teresa May, Donald Trump still sought to make good on his promise to the American people. He congratulated Putin on his election and invited him to the White House for early talks, citing the escalating and dangerous arms race between the United States and Russia. The British and their American friends completely lost it in response. A hammer needed to be dropped on this President who now was even talking of pulling American troops out of Syria and rebuilding the United States.
Enter a second British authored poisoning hoax, this one in Syria. The Russians, Iranians, and Syrians not only assisted in the defeat of ISIS, but were mopping up the last remnants of remaining jihadis, such as Jayish Al Islam, a rebranded Salafist Jihadi group controlled by the Saudis, and the Al Nusra front or Al-Qaeda. The final military operations consolidating victory were concluded in the last days in Gouta, a suburb of Damascus. Having achieved victory, under the narrative our war mongering media would have us believe, Assad launched a chemical weapons attack to celebrate that victory, knowing he would bring down holy hell upon himself from the West.
The pictures of dying children which President Trump reacted to so emotionally a year ago, when he launched missile strikes on Syria, have been presented to him again.There is every reason to believe they are fake.Russia and Syria had been warning about just such a false flag attack involving chlorine gas for over a month as they closed in on victory in Gouta.The only information claiming such an attack occurred is coming from the White Helmets, an aid organization founded by the British, implicated as being militarily involved with Al-Qaeda, and deeply implicated in past hoaxes concerning Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons. Sy Hersh fully documented this story in the London Review of Books concerning the fake news that Assad used Sarin in August of 2013. MIT's Ted Postol and others have demonstrated that the alleged sarin attack to which President Trump responded militarily one year ago, was also a British fake. See, Robert Parry, and James Carden.
The White Helmets are jointly funded by British and American intelligence components dedicated to regime change in Syria. They have received millions upon millions of dollars for this purpose. They are critical components of the interventionist and regime change foreign policy Donald Trump was elected to eradicate.
In 2013, when Obama threatened war with Russia over Syria, the American people intervened, raised the roof of Congress, and stopped it. This is what is needed now. Russia sees an unrelenting information warfare offensive coming from the British and their dupes in the U.S.They correctly see this as the first steps toward war. We need to reverse this starting right now. Call your Congressional Representative or Senator, tell them to stop the drive to War and Shutdown Robert Mueller, Now.
Capitol Switchboard is 202-224- 3121. Raise the roof! Call the White House and tell the President not to step in a British trap 202-456-1111.
Russia’s Nebenzia: ‘Do You Understand the Dangerous Threshold to Which You Are Bringing the World?’
April 9, 2018 (EIRNS)—Today’s three-hour session of the UN Security Council, was requested by Russia, under the topic, “Threats to International Peace and Security.” It was used as a stage for wild accusations against Russia and Syria by the British, U.S., French, and Dutch Ambassadors, before which, however, Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia gave a scorching, detailed presentation against the lies. He made the fundamental point explicitly to the whole chamber, that we are at an extreme danger point. He said, “I will ask a rhetorical question: Do you understand the dangerous threshold to which you are bringing the world?”
Nebenzia drew attention to the repeated warnings from Russia and Syria to the United Nations and to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), that terrorists were plotting to stage a chemical warfare incident, to cast blame on Damascus. “You’ve heard these warnings.” But nothing was done.
The trio of U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, British Ambassador Karen Pierce, and French Ambassador Francois Delattre, joined by the Dutch Ambassador Karel van Oosterom, outdid each other with lies and crude insults against Russia and Syria. Ambassador Pierce praised her country, the United Kingdom, for how it is conducting an “independent” investigation of the Skripal poisoning.
Haley conspicuously walked out when Syrian Ambassador Bashar Ja’afari began speaking. He reported on the present situation in Syria, asking pointedly about this morning’s missile strike on his nation, “Why not say Israel did the aggression?” Besides a short, eloquent report on past inactions by the UN, Ja’afari gave specifics about what Syria supplied to the UN and OPCW regarding plots the Damascus government found of terrorists having toxic weapons. Damascus sent 144 letters, as of April 1 this year, on this danger. But they didn’t even read them, nor act on them.
Ja’afari said, “I announce that we want a fact-finding mission from the OPCW as soon as possible. We welcome this visit as soon as possible. I hope it does not have the same fate as the Ban Ki-moon March 2013 mission” which did not arrive for “four months and 11 days.”
Ambassadors of several other nations provided sanity and gravity to the session, with such comments, as that from Ambassador Kairat Umarov from Kazakhstan. He asked, who else, besides the White Helmets has any report of this imputed chemical weapons incident in Douma? Umarov confirmed that there were reports from Syria and Russia that terrorists were planning a chemical attack, but their warnings were not heeded by international agencies.
Ambassador Tekeda Alemu of Ethiopia, besides calling for a fact-finding mission, addressed the international situation. He said that “trust among the major powers is low” and has grave implications for peace. It has “implications for sustainable development goals in the development sphere.” He spoke movingly about the need for a “global security environment.”
At the end of the session, Nebenzia, asking to speak again, made three points: 1) The Council Presidency has to keep Haley in line and not referring to legitimate governments such as Russia, as “regimes”; 2) The British so-called investigation into the Skripal poisoning is not an investigation, and he demolished Pierce’s assertion; 3) “We are moving to a dangerous threshold...it is not understood by any of our Western colleagues.”
Lavrov: Before Striking Syria Militarily, Remember Russia Has Obligations to Syria
April 9, 2018 (EIRNS)—Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov reiterated in a press briefing today what Russian military officials have warned previously, that Russia may not sit by if there is a military strike on Syria. Lavrov framed his statement specifically as a response to “warnings from the U.S. President’s officials”—Trump’s Homeland Security Advisor Thomas Bossert, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis (later President Trump himself)—that Washington does not exclude a military strike on Syria. He was quoted by Sputnik, restating Russian policy: “You know, our military has already reacted to this. We have our obligations to Syria. Obligations based on our agreement concluded with the legitimate, legal government of the Syrian Arab Republic at the request of this government, which is, incidentally, a UN member-state.”
The Foreign Minister reminded reporters that Russia had made many warnings, from on the ground in Syria, that a provocation was planned in order to blame Damascus for chemical weapons use. “We already had a chance to comment on the current situation before this current situation became reality,” he stressed. “Our servicemen staying in the Syrian Arab Republic, on soil, repeatedly warned ... that a serious provocation is being prepared, aimed at blaming Damascus for the use of a chemical poisoning agent against civilians.”
Russia is “in total support of a fair and immediate investigation, when they ask for it. However, when the investigation is intended to come at a predetermined point—that is, it was done by Assad with Putin’s support—there are no grounds for a serious discussion,” Lavrov said, according to TASS.
Lavrov repeated that neither Russian military nor the Red Crescent has found evidence of an attack, referencing the history of untrustworthy pictures from previous alleged attacks being released by NGOs such as the White Helmets. “But, as you see, this all became the reason for the unfolding of the colossal anti-Syrian campaign, which is now being deployed against us under the pretext that Russia covers for the criminal regime, as they say,” Lavrov told the journalists.
