The day only has 24 hours and, if a person has a real job it might, therefore, be accepted there is neither the energy, time or inclination to catch up on any real news. The daily diet of “truth” might then be confined to a quick browsing of mainstream websites, or a ten minutes devoted to the news at ten.
T-Online informs us that there was military material inside the passenger plane which was forced to land in Istanbul en route from Moscow to Damascus with Russian citizens on board. Yet, according to news sources as far apart as Britain’s ‘The Telegraph’ and Russia’s ‘RT News’, no such material was in fact found. Of course, with the United States and its allies supporting the so-called “freedom fighters” ofso-called “Free Syrian Army” we might be tempted to yawn at the hypocrisy here. It really does bring you to that after a point!
Of course, with Patrick Henningsen pointing out that 90% of the “freedom fighters” are from outside Syria we might realise that things should not be simply dismissed with a yawn, this is a very real war that has been manufactured in Washington and London. Furthermore, the forced landing of the Syrian plane, and the “exchange of fire” across the border has moved it into a new stage. One where Syria’s neighbours will be pushed into a conflict and one where Turkey, a NATO member, will provide the pretext for an even more overt intervention by the West and, indeed, the establishing of a no fly zone that will flatten the country much in the same way as Libya was recently flattened.
Indeed, with US forces now directly involved along the Syrian border with Jordan, albeit in small numbers, any doubt as to how this conflict is developing can be done away with. This is a war where the US and its allies will provide training and logistical support for Jihadists from Malaysia to Morocco, Borneo to Britain, where it will bomb Syrian military installations and civil infrastructure from the air, and where they will leave a right old mess yet still have the audacity to tell us that they had to do it, that Assad was a horrible man and that the world will be a better place without him. It is almost time to yawn again and I have to remind myself that while the deceit and hypocrisy suck, they, in fact, facilitate a very real agenda that is driving us forward to World War III.
