Is there 'no fate but what we make'?
What do you do when you're born into a species that's too insane and self-destructive to realize it's completely insane and heading to self-destruction?
On the anniversary of Barack Obama drawing a "red line" with Bashar Assad's regime over using chemical weapons, Syria unleashes a vicious Sarin gas attack on rebels killing hundreds:
Mr Assad has been advancing recently, beating back the rebels and recapturing territory. Using chemical weapons might make sense when he is losing, but why launch gas attacks when he is winning anyway?
Moreover, United Nations inspectors charged with discovering the truth about chemical weapons in Syria arrived in Damascus on Sunday. Superficially, it would seem strange for the regime to gas its enemies within 72 hours of letting these experts into the country. [UK Telegraph]
The timing and location of the reported chemical weapons use - just three days after the team of U.N. chemical experts checked in to a Damascus hotel a few km (miles) to the east at the start of their mission - was surprising.
"It would be very peculiar if it was the government to do this at the exact moment the international inspectors come into the country," said Rolf Ekeus, a retired Swedish diplomat who headed a team of UN weapons inspectors in Iraq in the 1990s.
"At the least, it wouldn't be very clever."
Ekeus said the mandate of the U.N. team was limited to three sites but could be amended to investigate fresh claims - which would be simpler to verify than the other months-old cases.
"It is easier to do sampling and testing, and also to look at the victims, if there are sick people or even dead people (on the scene). It is easier to get to doctors and get to the place where the event happened." [Reuters]
Of course, Syria, Russia and anti-Western elements are seeking to blame Syrian rebels for unleashing the attack upon themselves to elicit a Western military strike against Bashar Assad's regime, but there's apparently compelling evidence that government forces were behind the gas attack:
"Everything leads us to believe that the regime carried out this abhorrent act" - French President Francois Hollande
An intelligence report detailing evidence of the alleged attack could be released as early as Tuesday, a U.S. official told CNN. The report will include forensic evidence and intercepted communications among Syrian military commanders, the official said..
As the Obama Administration now rushes to take military action against Bashar Assad's regime for crossing the President's "red line", an utterly predictable response, does it dawn upon anyone, save me, that this is a colossal strategic trap?
What kind of trap?
It's exactly what I've been warning this ill-fated world about for the past two+ decades: a future chemical SCUD missile attack on Israel that triggers a nuclear third world war now that the Western powers least expect such a full-scale East/West conflict.
Bashar Assad is nothing but a Russian puppet and is doing the Devil's bidding. The reality is that this world is being misled into destruction and subjugation by the "Old Enemy" and there's apparently no 'good men' left to stop the triumph of evil.
Is there any hope at all?
Not until people believe in Me.
