The UN General Assembly has adopted an anti-Syria resolution that was drafted by the Arab League and backed by the United States and the United Kingdom.

On Thursday, 137 members of the UN voted in favor of the resolution, while 12, including Russia and China, voted against the measure.

Press TV has interviewed Dr. Webster Tarpley, author and historian from Washington, to further discuss the issue.

The following is an approximate transcription of the interview.

Press TV: Arguments have been made both for and against the fact that the adoption of such a resolution can give the green light to a military intervention in Syria. Where do you stand on that?

Tarpley: Well, it’s hard to see how this could make any armed action legal, just because of the way the UN is set up, as resolutions, the chapter 7 armed force international peace and security resolution have to go through the Security Council.

And as you mentioned, this particular one has already been rejected twice with the cross vetoes because of the Chinese and Russians, once in October and now again in February.

It is rather a kind sour grape; it is kind of a desperate ploy by Susan Rice and her gang of puppets and people that she bosses around to try to bring this to the UN General Assembly.

I think it’s also interesting to see, who voted against this, because it’s a very large part of the world.

The largest country geographically, Russia, was against it, the largest demographically, China, was against it. Syria of course, the most interested, was against it.

The leading country in Latin America, Venezuela, against it, joined by Bolivia, Cuba and Ecuador!

Sri Lanka, who has had some experience with terrorism, sponsored the Western countries themselves, Pakistan, one huge and important country.

The others were Cambodia, the DPRK, that’s pretty much the group. The outer role of the 12 that stood up to imperialism!

And of course Iran has a key place in that.

So these are the countries that people will look to politically, for leadership against imperialism, in our time.

Certainly, they will be looking to Ban Ki-moon, who is not really acting like the UN Secretary General, but rather as a kind of a spokesperson for the White House and number 10 Downing Street and the Elysee palace.

The one thing that I would point to is that when London and Washington don’t get what they want, through legal means, they attempt to create an outside event.

And this of course raises, once again the specter of false flag terror operations, conducted to try to demonize Syria, or some other part of this coalition, and so those sooner rather than later.

We’re already beginning to pick up straws in the wind right, when you look out over the internet, people are beginning to circulate reports about air traffic and planned events.

None of these can be verified, but they start in March, and they go all the way through to May, June, into the summer.

So I think its time for tremendous vigilance, and to immaculate world public opinion, that terror event that seem to emanate from Syria, at this point must be attributed by the Western or NATO intelligence agencies.

Press TV: You covered a bit of this, but can you discuss a bit about the method that is being used by the sponsors of this resolutions, having it being passed. I mean, especially, with the rejection of amendments that have been put forth by Russia, which would seemingly make the resolution much more balanced.

Tarpley: Right, it’s a one sided resolution. And the Russian amendments would have helped matters, but they were simply dismissed out of hands.

The other question is, whether there’s going to be any negotiation between the two sides within Syria.

The US and NATO position is, that there must be no dialogue. The dialogue is out of the question.

So that I think is obviously wrong.

The other thing is, even with the Russian amendments, I don’t think the UN has gotten a clear idea of what’s going on, which is the reality of death squads.

In other words, this is a rebellion, in a small scale, by death squads, who are supported from places like Turkey, Iskenderun.

We just had reports on AL Jazeera this afternoon, about all the weapons that are coming across from Lebanon, were presumable Saad Hariri, and other people that are making sure that weapons are shipped into cities like Hama and Homs.

The Jordanian border remains the other Haderia, Dera’a, and then the border with Iraq.

So it’s a completely fomented from outside rebellion, and it doesn’t control any territory and is completely fragmented.

Anyone who says that fighting against an armed insurrection is a crime is saying that Abraham Lincoln would have been a criminal, because that’s exactly what he did.

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 happening 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".

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 IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and 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 and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) 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.

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?
