Interview 730 – Ayssar Midani on the Syrian Chemical Weapons Hoax

Posted by Corbett

Ayssar Midani, a French Syrian citizen and political activist, joins us from Damascus to talk about the latest developments in Syria. We talk about the history of the terrorist jihadi insurgency in the country and their prior use of chemical weapons, the latest attack and claims of satellite evidence proving that the attack was not launched by government officials, and the likely consequences of a US-led strike on the country.

Spoiler Alert

PRISM to be used to justify war against Syria!

The Daily Mail (today) is reporting that telephone calls within Syria have been intercepted to prove Obama's claim that the Assad Government ordered the chemical attack.

Hence the sustained MSM reporting of PRISM recently - PRISM provides the "base" for how these calls were collected and demonstrate the value of constant and universal surveillance. PRISM will be used to "substantiate" the "Humanitarian" attacks of Cruise Missiles against Syria.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we won't be plunged into WW3.

The Daily Mail article (if you can stomach it) is here

On this and related subjects,

On this and related subjects, it is consistently difficult to stomach the propaganda spewed out by the corporate weasel-media on both sides of the Atlantic. As is typical, the Daily Mail's report is single-sourced - some unfollowable and unverifiable claim from an un-named party in the intelligence community - violating the prime rule of responsible journalism. However, if 'news' is brought to us by the US Government, then it doesn't require multiple verification, because as we all know, government agencies would never lie to the people, surely?

The wikipeaks document dump of 2012 indicated that the Syrian government was going to be 'set up' with accusations of chemical weapons use, and the UN has already found that the US supported rebel faction had used chemical weapons. Even the BBC (!!!) reported this

Prince Bandar (not dead) working to undermine Syria

"Officials inside the Central Intelligence Agency knew that Saudi Arabia was serious about toppling Syrian President Bashar al-Assad when the Saudi king named Prince Bandar bin Sultan al-Saud to lead the effort.

Bandar and Putin talk Saudi/Russian Oil partnership..

"The details of the talks were first leaked to the Russian press. A more detailed version has since appeared in the Lebanese newspaper As-Safir, which has Hezbollah links and is hostile to the Saudis.
As-Safir said Prince Bandar pledged to safeguard Russia’s naval base in Syria if the Assad regime is toppled, but he also hinted at Chechen terrorist attacks on Russia’s Winter Olympics in Sochi if there is no accord. “I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics next year. The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us,” he allegedly said.

“names the local Jabhat al-Nusra commander, Sheikh Zahran Abdullah Alloush, as having ordered the firing of the two rockets with chemical warheads. In fact, Alloush is the commander of the Liwa al-Islam Brigade, based in Duma. He is a well-known and documented figure. She says the satellite imagery actually shows the rockets being fired, travelling and reaching their targets, and that it has been given by Vitaly Churkin to the UNSC. She does not say whether satellite telephone communications from or to Alloush substantiating the claim were intercepted. The video evidence (and audio evidence, if there is any) has not been released publicly, and this is a typically Russian authoritarian mistake. They will not comprehend the fact that the world public has to be treated as an equal interlocutor in emergencies, not an object to be manipulated by competing rulers.”

1st ‘maybe’ WHY no public statement has been made by Russia or UNSC regarding this critical matter. But you'd have to say., its about fkn time they spoke OUT if they have these intercepts and want to stop the next phase of this false flag outrage.

Events Are Moving Quickly In Syria… Here’s What You Need to Know

The U.S. is about to attack Syria. Here’s what you need to know:

State universities are your best edcuational value.......

The Washington Blog gives over twenty bullet points and it takes only a few of them alone to obviate any reason to go to war with Syria. I, with my state school education know that and yet Yale educated White House spokesman Jay Carney sees otherwise; lux et veritas, my ass. Obama, in a recent speech, called for a way to assess higher education institutions. I say we do that but start by pulling the heraldic escutcheon plates from the all the obvious university trouble spots like Yale, Harvard, Brown, Notre Dame and all the other *hit holes that have endorsed and licensed all of the cretinous "leaders" we have been saddled with like Kissinger, Bush, Obama, Cheney, Carney and that doufus Jen Psaki (College of William and Mary) over at State in her $1000.00 yellow suit; to say nothing of her Lurch look alike boss John Kerry (Yale and Boston College).

An old Gypsy once told me that: "ignorance in action looks ridiculous."

It's not that they're stupid

Of course, this isn't really about intelligence, learning, or the lack thereof. I would guess that what differentiates you from them is basically a concern for the truth. That and an unquenchable lust (or lack thereof, in your case) to control the world and all the people and resources in it--or, at least, to serve and win the favor of those who are vying for such control. And a quality which the latter cultivate, and encourage in those who seek such advancement up the ranks and into their circles, is the ability to spew b.s. with a straight face before millions of people.

There's a lot of straight talk in Michael Parenti's 'The Face of Imperialism' (2011). At one point (pp. 57-8), he says of 'liberal critics' (and I'm not presuming to apply that or any such label to you here) that it's high time they '...stop thinking that the people who own so much of the world--and want to own it all--are "incompetent" or "misguided" or "failing to see the unintended consequences of their policies." When we think the empire builders are being stupid, we are not being very smart ourselves. They know what they are doing; they know where their interests lie--and so should we.'

Ah, but wait--many of these 'liberal critics' likewise went to these so-called elite schools, though they did not make it into (or very far into) the power structure. And looked at that way, it doesn't speak so well for the quality of education offered there. But my basic point is, when it comes to those who actually occupy positions of influence within (or over) powerful bureaucracies, it isn't a deficiency of knowledge or intelligence that's really at issue, so much as deficiencies of character, conscience, ethics, etc.

I am fully cognizant of everything you are saying

I am fully cognizant of everything you are saying, RM, and, while I agree with you, I still stand by what I said. Please, don't take my town versus gown, state versus private school rant as anything other than glib irony. I took a B.A. in psychology from a Freudian college which entailed four years of arduous study and the best advice I ever got was from Vladimir Nabokov who said: "Let the credulous and the vulgar continue to believe that all mental woes can be cured by a daily application of old Greek myths to their private parts."

We do need to, however, look squarely at our myths, norms, mores and institutions and hold them up to ridicule as Nabokov did. I might have mentioned this before but in the late '60s to early '70s there was this guy, a Dr. Nork, who had the dubious distinction of being America's leading malpractitioner. This surgeon was so bad with his scalpel that when he sent his specimens to the lab the pathologists had difficulty identifying them as they just weren't use to seeing healthy tissue: Dr. Nork cut out everything and, according to one source: "he lost two malpractice suits for a total 41 million." I don't know the outcome of the other, at least, 40 million he was sued for. One of the reasons for the large judgments, staggering sums for the time, was to send a ripple through society and hold accountable, if only indirectly, the self-same institutions that created the monster.

Pernell Roberts quit the runaway hit Bonanza at the height of its run "criticizing the show's simple-minded content and lack of minority actors..." Please tell me how the government "lights" I mentioned above aren't subject to the same fatigue from running their tired scripts on us. Well, at least in war there is no dearth of minority actors. In today's 21st Century Military we are availing ourselves of the fruits of modernity with tools like Ratheon's TALON Laser-Guided Rocket (LGR). This missile: "TALON provides an effective weapon against soft to lightly armored point targets while reducing potential collateral damage. Moreover, its precision standoff range results in improved platform survivability." And as for minority actors? Well they are the next brown tribe on the "7 in 5" target list, of course. And how can anyone who is presently in the military and is senior enough to have a chest full of fruit salad take any of this seriously or feel any pride or accomplishment in fighting wars to dubious conclusions with rag-tag countries populated by Asians, or Arabs with GNPs in the toilet?

You touched on, directly or indirectly, the topic of political polarity. You mentioned leftists and Michael Parenti who I think is a leftist; I think he stylizes himself as a socialist but you can't have any kind of polarity without a dialectic. Abby Hoffman said: "how can I say 'I love you' in a culture that says 'I love my car'?" How can you have a dialectic in a country where someone says: "it depends on what your definition of is, is?" That was said by a Rhodes Scholar by the way.

No, I don't think that the "elites" are inept. I fully expect them to launch the "Kosovo Protocols"* against Syria. But I do think they will look damn silly doing so in a sort of 280 pound Herman Goering wearing a self-designed powder blue uniform sort of way. I don't know how long all of this can go on. There are real signs of the system breaking down under its own weight. The main stream media is dead: NPR just lost another CEO, CIA connected Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post, Newsweek is dead, Pacifica is embattled, No Agenda's Adam Curry played a clip of Rachel Maddow stating that "more people heard the clip on his show than on the original airing of MSNBC," Chris Matthews morphed into Sean Hannity and on and on.

But we are not talking about a "leftist" criticizing elites here. We are talking about a transvaluation of all values here, in the Nietzchian sense, and that doesn't come without alarm and ridicule. Birgitta Jónsdóttir the Pirate Party representative to the Althing, Iceland's Parliament, has recently stated: " All the structures we thought would take care of us, be it systems, ideologies, religion, politics or institutions are failing." So, as Jónsdóttir says, all our institutions are failing and the actors we see on stage are playing a farce with Tartuffian bombast and deserve all of our contempt and ridicule: John Yoo is a law professor teaching constitutional law at Berkeley; professor, my ass.
