12/13/12: Another mysterious 'terrorist' bombing in Damascus

Two weeks ago a disturbing video was uploaded to the internet the purports to show Syrian "rebels" killing two rabbits with Sarin nerve gas. It was suppposedly a warning by the rebels that they have and are prepared to use chemical weapons in the struggle against Bashar Assad's regime.

As far as I can ascertain, the first copy of the video was uploaded to the pro-Assad YouTube channel, TheSyriatube. Soon thereafter a copy of the video was uploaded to the pro-Assad YouTube channel for the Syrian Tribune, but this time with English subtitles. The heading for the video is: "Syria Rebels testing Tekkim chemicals to use as chem weapons":

TEKKIM is a chemical company located in Turkey.

As the room is panned in the video, you see containers of chemicals like potassium nitrate, sodium nitrate, nitric acid, hydrochloric acid, urea, etc., none of which are used in the production of nerve agents like Sarin and VX. They are useful in producing explosives (potassium nitrate is a key ingredient for gun powder) but not chemical weapons.

What you have therefore is an amateurish attempt to associate Turkey (READ: NATO) with what comes next in the video.

Next, you see an individual wearing chemical warfare garments pour a liquid in a vial into a larger vial within a glass chamber containing two rabbits. A heavy gas the pours out of the container exposing the rabbits. Within a minute or so, the rabbits start convulsing and then die, a typical fatal mammalian reaction to exposure to Sarin gas which is produced by combining two liquids (isopropanol and methylphosphonyl difluoride) just as shown.

Here's some old U.S. movie footage showing the effects of a Sarin (GB) gas attack on animals including rabbits:

Thus, the purported Syrian rebel YouTube video does appear to show the use of Sarin nerve agent on two rabbits.

Now let's consider what misinformation the "rebel" video seeks to convey.

Iran's Fars News Agency reported on the video in an article dubbed, "MP: Chemical Attack by Rebels Much More Possible than by Syrian Gov't", which appeared days after after the video was posted:

On Sunday, a shocking video posted on YouTube and other Internet networks showed Al Qaeda terrorists who are active in Syria within the framework of the Free Syrian Army are preparing to use chemical weapons against Syrian Shiites. The video showed the group testing chemical weapons on lab rabbits.

On the video, it appeared to be a nerve gas that rebels used on the rabbits. Then about a minute later, the rabbits were seen having convulsions.

The person carrying out the test, said in the video, "You saw what happened? This will be your fate, you infidel Alawites, I swear by ALLAH to make you die like these rabbits, one minute only after you inhale the gas."

On Saturday, the Syrian Foreign Ministry had warned that the armed rebels might use chemical weapons against the civilian population and the Syrian army.

"Terrorist groups may resort to using chemical weapons against the Syrian people... after having gained control of a toxic chlorine factory in the Eastern Aleppo," Syria's state SANA news agency quoted the foreign ministry as saying

The ministry was believed to be referring to the Syrian-Saudi Chemicals Company (SYSACCO) factory near Safira near Aleppo, which was taken over earlier this week by the armed rebels from the terrorist group Al-Nusra Front, affiliated to the al-Qaeda.

It's been widely reported that the Al-Nusra Front had overtaken the Syrian-Saudi Chemicals Company (SYSACCO) "chlorine" factory near Safira, but there's conflicting reports as to whether or not chemical weapons are stored there. Near to this location is a known chemical weapons depot where SCUD missiles targeting Israel are also located that are tipped with chemical warheads. Since President Obama has even identified Al-Nusra as a terrorist group affiliated with al Qaeda, the prospect of Al-Nusra taking control of such a site is very alarming.

Of course, if such a sensitive site as Safira was to be overrun by rebel forces, you'd think Syria would put up a far more potent counterforce to defend it from occupation since losing their chemical weapons would mean rebel forces gaining access to weapons of mass destruction. At the least, you'd think Bashar Assad's forces would act to destroy any WMDs stored there to prevent there use by rebels.

Ultimately, however, I think this is all part of a setup for a war involving the use of chemical weapons by Syria ultimately against Israel. By hiding this under a seeming civil war in Syria, it's possible to make everything appear to be the "imperialist" West's fault....whether a chemical SCUD missile attack on Israel comes from the regular Syrian army or from al-Qaeda terrorists operating as rebels.

That everything is being lined up to blame the West for the mess that's being concocted is revealed by the following interview with the editor of the Syrian Tribune (the YouTube channel on which was posted the rabbit video with English subtitles above) that appeared on RussiaToday the day after the videos were uploaded to the internet:

Ultimately, the strategic objective is triggering a nuclear third world war and the destruction of Israel, America and the Western allies. Precisely how the global chess pieces will be played from Syria remains to be seen, but make no mistake about it. What your witnessing is NOT what it appears to be.

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. [John 8:44]

7/19/12: The Missing Damascus Bombing

12/20/12: Video Of Rabbits Being Poisoned By Sarin Gas

The big news yesterday out of Syria was of a massive 'terrorist' bombing of the Interior Ministry building in Damascus:

The building of the Syrian interior ministry in the capital Damascus has been targeted by three explosions, according to state TV.

One of the blasts was caused by a car bomb, the report said.

There had been "a number of deaths and injuries" and damage to the building.

Meanwhile, members of a group of more than 100 countries have recognised Syria's opposition coalition as the "legitimate representative" of the Syrian people.

Foreign ministers from the Friends of Syria group made the decision to recognise the opposition National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Force after talks in Morocco.

'Huge explosion'

The interior ministry building is in the Kafar Souseh district, an area on the south-western outskirts of the capital where fighting has previously been reported between government forces and rebels.

The main entrance of the building was damaged by the blasts, state TV said.

As I've been warning at length in my "What's Really Going On In Syria?" blogs, the seeming insurgency there just doesn't add up, and there's reason to suspect that what's unfolding has been instigated from the top down.

Why would this be?

All I can point out is that the regime of Bashar Assad, in alliance with Russia and other hardline Arab/Islamic states like Iran and now Egypt, never lose site of the larger strategic objective, i.e., the destruction of "Big Satan" and "Little Satan", i.e., America and Israel. History is thus being shaped accordingly to effect this end.

The bombing of Syria's Interior Ministry seems to be a similar repeat of the bombing of Syria's National Headquarters building in July which I made clear at the time was a bombing that never actually occurred as reported. The BBC was the only news service that brought to light the suspicious circumstances of that purported terrorist event.

With regard to this newest 'terrorist' bombing, there was some astute reporting by Enduring America WorldView suggesting the bombing of the Interior Ministry building was an inside job:

1946 GMT: Syrian Media, SANA, now reports that three different explosions resulted in "martyring of a number of people and the injuring of others" at the Interior Ministry in Damascus. SANA does not say whether any officials have been injured, though rumors are flying, rumors which State TV has already denied. They have posted several pictures, two of which we post here (click for full size):

The problem? Looking at the video we posted at 1634: appears that the rebars in the floor, were blown directly down. In the pictures below, you can see some of them sticking down. Only a huge explosion would do this. Furthermore, the blast would have to be right above this floor. Also, there are no signs of car parts, or scorching.

In other words, according to some weapons experts we've consulted, the main blast does not look at all like a car bomb. A car bomb would be difficult anyway, as sources suggest that the street in front of the Ministry has been closed by security for some time.

So how could an explosive that powerful get inside the Interior Ministry?

We'd note that these a preliminary findings. As more evidence comes in, and experts have more context with which to analyze that evidence, it may be easier to pinpoint a likely cause of the explosions.

Once again, what seems to be unfolding is an effort on the part of Syria to project the image that their nation is falling victim to 'Western imperialist aggression', and I believe this is opening the way ultimately for an all-out war on Israel and then the United States using weapons of mass destruction:

Ultimately this will open the way for Russia and Chinese domination of the world under the battle cry that the self-serving foreign policies of the Western powers completely failed to properly govern world affairs thereby justifying a global takeover by the 'former' Communist powers of the East. The truth of the matter, however, is that Russia and its allies were behind World War Three from the get-go and are therefore commanded by the ultimate criminal regimes about as unqualified for world governance as can be.

Why do Russia, Iran, Qatar and Syria have slick, English-language international news networks?

Bookmark and Share
Is it me, or is it a tad odd that Russia, Iran, Qatar and Syria have extraordinarily slick, English-language international news networks that have highly active YouTube channels and live streams?

RussiaToday | live stream

Iran's PressTV | live stream

Al Jazeera | live stream

Syria News

Does it dawn upon anyone that this might have everything to do with anti-Israeli, anti-American PROPAGANDA and the ongoing struggle for the minds and hearts of the world's people?!

From Wikipedia:

Propaganda is a form of communication that is aimed at influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position by presenting only one side of an argument. Propaganda is usually repeated and dispersed over a wide variety of media in order to create the chosen result in audience attitudes.

"We have no right ever to forget that psychological warfare is a struggle for winning people's minds." - Mikhail Gorbachev

With the seeming forfeiture of the Cold War by the Communist East, suddenly the once deceitful, untrustworthy "Evil Empire" became a friend of the West that could be trusted. The problem with this historical transformation, of course, is that lies only work when the victim believes they are true. Thus, by feigning the collapse of communism, the militaristic, totalitarian powers of the East were able to dupe the West and the rest of the world into believing their seemingly endless strategic lies as being true. Thus, Israel, America and the NATO powers are being successfully misled into total defeat:

Now why is it do you think that a false picture is being painted that America and the West are behind the insurgency in Syria?

From an article in the left-leaning UK Guardian, "William Hague confirms 'evidence' of Syrian chemical weapons: Foreign secretary says he has seen some proof that Assad's forces are preparing to launch chemical attack against rebels":

Amid speculation that the regime could be targeted with air strikes, Hague said the use of chemical weapons would be a "major change in situation".

Hague's words came amid claims from Russia, Syria's principal ally in the UN security council, that a series of leaks from the Pentagon and US state department about Assad's ability to deploy chemical weapons was being used by Obama to underpin threats of military action against his regime.

The claims have been met with incredulity by the Kremlin, which has suggested they are being used as a pretext to increase pressure on Assad and prepare for the use of force.

In other words, the Western powers are being setup as the imperialist, war-mongering bad guys that trigger World War Three. Yet the truth is that Russia has been setting up this whole apocalyptic scenario from the get-go.
