Syria: Next for Libya-style ‘humanitarian’ intervention?

With the destruction of Libya winding down, the Western imperialist machine is looking for the next target for destabilization and exploitation.

If John McCain, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, is any indication, it is likely the case that Syria is on the top of the list.

I have speculated about Syria being the next target for foreign military intervention under the guise of humanitarianism for several months now, dating back to early April.

The evidence for this position has only grown since then and the public statements from McCain at a meeting of the World Economic Forum in Jordan made it that much more concrete.

“Now that military operations in Libya are ending, there will be renewed focus on what practical military operations might be considered to protect civilian lives in Syria,” said McCain at the World Economic Forum meeting.

The situation in Syria is far from transparent as the armed status of the “protesters” is regularly glossed over in the Western corporate media.

In the few instances in which it is mentioned, they are just labeled “opposition gunmen” then the mainstream media continues to pretend they are peaceful pro-democracy activists who are victim of an evil government.

If Americans took up guns against the United States government, you can bet they wouldn’t be characterized as peaceful pro-democracy protesters, yet when it happens in Syria they are given special status.

Furthermore, the information coming out of Syria is sketchy at best given the fact that none of it is independently verified and the vast majority comes from so-called “activists” and “human rights groups” which, like the rebels in Libya, have a strong incentive to falsify information.

AFP claims that more than 3,000 people were killed in Syrian crackdowns on pro-democracy protests, citing the United Nations. They say that this includes 187 children who have been killed since mid-March.

Like in Libya, McCain is claiming that the domestic opposition in Syria is asking for foreign military intervention.

“There are even growing calls among the opposition for some foreign military intervention. We hear these pleas for assistance. We are listening to and engaging with the (opposition) National Council,” McCain said.

Interestingly, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the Syrian opposition has called for no such thing and the Obama administration claims they do not seek to intervene in Syria militarily according to The Washington Post.

Also contrary to McCain’s claim, The Washington Post is reporting, “Most Syrian opposition groups, inside and outside Syria, also have said they oppose military intervention.

One member of Syria’s outgoing parliament, Mohammad Habash, told The Washington Post that foreign military intervention “will only bring catastrophes, wars and blood and this is what we don’t wish at all.”

Clinton did say that Washington supports regime change in Syria and “an opposition that only engages in peaceful demonstration” although the opposition is doing no such thing as of now.

McCain said that there are growing reports of defections from the Syrian military and he claims that the fact that the opposition formed the Syrian National Council points to “a new phase” in the uprising in Syria.

McCain also raised the specter of Iranian meddling in Syria, leveling the claim that “dark forces in this region, especially in Iran, are working harder than ever to hijack the promise of what many are calling the Arab Spring.”

McCain once again issued a veiled threat to Iran, saying, “The Assad regime should not consider that it can get away with mass murder. Gadhafi made that mistake and it cost him everything […] Iran’s rulers would be wise to heed similar counsel”.

It doesn’t take a genius to see that McCain is warning the Iranian regime that they could very well be next on the list for globalist military intervention if they don’t play ball.

While Iran has not pulled their support from Assad’s regime completely, they have urged him to cease assaulting protesters and open up to dialogue with the opposition.

Let’s not forget that in reality Assad has actually called for a national dialogue with the Western-backed groups which are fomenting revolution in Syria.

“More Syrians appear to be taking up arms against the regime”, says McCain.

In the warped doublethink of politicians like McCain, these armed insurgents have some kind of special status as pro-democracy protesters, whereas anyone who takes up arms against the U.S. or an American ally must be destroyed.

This is likely because the so-called protesters are actually funded and backed by the West and have been for some time, as Tony Cartalucci and I have previously reported.

The Jordanian state-run news agency, Petra, reported that McCain held talks with King Abdullah II of Jordan, a key American ally, about Middle East issues.

The U.S. and Jordan signed a $250-million “small and medium enterprise loan guarantee programme” to help prop up the struggling Jordanian economy.

To anyone remotely familiar with the economic woes in the United States, this should be nothing short of offensive.

We cannot afford to meddle in anyone’s business anymore. We need to go back to an “America first” attitude or else we run the risk of total economic destruction.

However, the military-industrial complex seeks to constantly expand and open new fronts in order to keep making a profit and keep the cash from government contracts rolling in.

As long as we allow McCain and other warmongers in Washington to dictate our policy, we will continue to be economically downtrodden at home while slaughtering innocents abroad in the name of “freedom” and “democracy.”

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
