Mỹ Anh Úc Pháp khởi sự tiến hành kế hoạch tiến chiếm Syria, một kế hoạch đã được Âu Mỹ và Do Thái chuẩn bị từ hơn 10 năm nay: Phá hủy toàn bộ tiềm lực Trung Đông và đi từng bước một. Sự kiện 911 chỉ là bước đầu của toàn bộ kế hoạch này không chỉ như là một lý cớ mà còn là một đòn đánh bại làm tê liệt sự phản kháng của quần chúng Âu Mỹ.

Khi báo chí độc lập lên tiếng báo động từ TRƯỚC khi 911 xảy ra, và phải đến năm 2007, tướng 4 sao của Mỹ Wesley Clark, từng là chỉ huy tối cao của lực lượng NATO (Supreme Allied Commander Europe of NATO 1997 – 2000), bất ngờ tỉnh ra cũng lên tiếng, dù chậm trễ, cảnh cáo quần chúng về kế hoạch điên loạn này, thì guồng máy báo chí chính qui ồ ạt lên tiếng với vũ khí bịt miệng truyền thống của nó: “Thuyết Âm Mưu đấy”. (US General Wesley Clark: War on Syria Planned in 1991)

Đây là cả một SỰ KIỆN ÂM MƯU với đầy đủ chứng cớ của Âu Mỹ và Do Thái do một nhóm TẬP ĐOÀN KỸ NGHỆ CHIẾN TRANH BÍ MẬT đại bản doanh đặt tại Anh-Mỹ chủ trì điều động. Tập đoàn này không chỉ khống trị guồng máy kỹ nghệ chiến tranh mà còn là chủ nhân của các đại ngân hàng công ty tài chính chủ đạo mua bán các ghế chính khách, chính phủ qua các quĩ ủng hộ ứng cử và tranh cử, chủ nhân các tập đoàn báo chí như CNN, FOX NEWS, và các ban giám đốc Viện Đại Học, Viện “nghiên cứu” như RAND, Council for Foreign Policy, và các tổ chức vận động quyền lực như AIPAC, AEIPNC (The American Enterprise Institute and the Project for the New American Century). Tất cả hoạt động nhịp nhàng ăn khớp không chỉ để tiến hành mà còn điều khiển dư luận và bênh vực chống đỡ lẫn nhau khi bị phanh phui lật tẩy, như chúng ta đã chứng kiến gần 20 năm qua.

Sau Iraq, Sudan, Libya … Syria cũng chĩ là “thuyết âm mưu”!!! Hãy đợi đến IRAN
Thật sự Assad cũng chỉ là tên tay sai, như bao nhiêu tên độc tài  tay sai trước đây Ngô đình Diệm, Phác Chính Hy, F.Marcos, Suharto,, Noriega, Sadam Husein, Gadafi, Mubarak v.v đã hết tiện dụng cho Mỹ thì phải bị triệt hạ… Bài học mà những tên mù quáng độc tài không bao giờ học được! 

Đúng như ông John Kaminski nhận định:

“Nếu người dân Mỹ dung túng một chiến lược loạn trí như vậy, thì rõ ràng họ không đáng tồn tại như một quốc gia hay một quần chúng” (If the American people DO tolerate such an insane strategy, then they clearly do not deserve to survive as a nation or a people)

Nhận định này không chỉ đối với người Mỹ, mà với tất cả con người. Nếu chúng ta dung túng và chấp nhận những lý lẽ và hành động chiến tranh điên cuồng vô nhân của Nhà nước như đang diễn ra, thì chúng ta KHÔNG CÒN XỨNG ĐÁNG TỒN TẠI NHƯ LÀ CON NGƯỜI với nền NHÂN BẢN nữa!

Using al-Assad vs. Assad
I have been closely following the situation and events in Syria as they unfold. In doing so I totally bypass what’s being misreported by the US mainstream media-Washington Post, New York Times, and the like. I also pass on anything dished out by the Rockefeller-Soros-Carnegie connected popular quasi alternatives. Instead I rely on a few truly alternative news sources, my own sources in the area (let’s call it the vicinity), and my current and former government insiders. As you may expect I end up with facts and a picture completely different than the popular marketing products fed to our public by the mainstream media and quasi sources.
I want to bring to your attention a crucial case (operation) largely blacked out or significantly lightened up by the popular press. Here is the sanitized version, twisted, and reported by the mainstream
Head of Syrian military defectors has denied a news report that he crossed the border from Turkey to Syria to command troops loyal to the opposition force called the Free Syrian Army.
“News reports that appeared on a number of Internet sites that I had crossed into Syria to command troops there are false. I am in Turkey at the moment in a safe place,” Col. Riad Al Assad told the Anadolu Agency on Tuesday. Al Assad said an estimated 15 thousand Syrian soldiers had deserted and joined the Free Syrian Army to fight against the Damascus regime.
“Four hundred troops quit the Syrian army yesterday alone. Last week, 15 officers including colonels have pledged their allegiance. The Syrian regime is scared of the Free Syrian Army now,” Al Assad said.”The fall of the Syrian regime is unavoidable.”
First, let me tell you right off the bat: the above article is in the ‘lightened up’ category. While the article doesn’t provide its own false information, it does showcase a main premise based on a subject who is in fact issuing a false denial. Further, the article purposefully doesn’t delve into why and how Col. Riad Al Assad ended up in Turkey, and what he’s been doing there.
Here is another brief mainstream paragraph on Col. Al Assad:
Dissident colonel Riad al-Asaad, organising defectors in Syria from his new base in southern Turkey, denied government allegations that adjacent states were allowing arms smuggling into Syria. “Not a single bullet” had been smuggled from abroad, he told Al Jazeera television.
Again, as in the previous piece, this article stops short purposefully. It doesn’t get into logical questions such as: What exactly is ‘organizing defectors’? How do you organize defectors in Syria from across the border? Is it a coincidence that his HQ is right inside the US Incirlik Base in Adana, Turkey?
You see, those alternative news and blog sites put down by the first cited article had it exactly right. Col. Riad al-Assad has been in Turkey, working with U.S. & NATO, right inside the US Incirlik Base in Turkey, to do exactly what he vehemently denies: smuggle US weapons into Syria, participate in US psychological and information warfare inside Syria as the middle-man whom Syrian protesters tend to trust, and help with funneling intelligence and military operators across the border and night-time drop offs by air.
The joint US-NATO secret training camp in the US air force base in Incirlik, Turkey, began operations in April- May 2011 to organize and expand the dissident base in Syria. Since then, in addition to Col. Riad al-Assad, several other high-ranking Syrian military and intelligence officials have been added to operations’ headquarters in the US base. Weekly weapons smuggling operations have been carried out with full NATO-US participation since last May. The HQ also includes an information warfare division where US-NATO crafted communications are directed to dissidents in Syria via the core group of Syrian military and Intelligence defectors.

Another Case of Convenient US Media Amnesia as War Propagandists
For the past few months on a daily basis we have been forced to read, watch and listen to the awful deeds of select dictators here and there, but not everywhere. Our war-drummer TV networks suddenly found an atrocious dictator in Libya, and at lightning speed lined up victim after victim of this long-ruling but suddenly popular dictator called Gaddafi. Remember this CNN episode? Yes I am sure you do. How could anyone erase these horrifying images from memory? Our public was far too horrified and disgusted to stop and wonder why now; why so suddenly. No. For years while our government and corporate partners supplied this dictator with an expansive array of deadly war and police tools, while they basked in the profit’s glow, no one in our media showed the slightest interest in or desire for widely and readily available atrocity documents, victims and witnesses. They waited until their government-corporate masters gave them the expedited green light for manic-continuous coverage. Oh how the majority longed for and anticipated our government’s regime change there…How they clamored for the barbaric ridding of this ruthless evil dictator. One down. A few more to go. Only here and there. Certainly not everywhere.
In recent months we have been presented daily, perhaps more accurately, hourly, with another dictator’s atrocious deeds. Every hour seems to be ‘the Syria Hour’ in our media. Oh, those poor freedom fighters falling one after another…The innocent people up against the heavily armed ferocious army…The daily massacres …all televised, intensely written about, loudly talked about; everywhere. That evil Bashar Assad and his regime. That evil dictator…
Granted on and off we’ve been hearing about the Assad regime’s evilness and its status on our decade-ago designated axis of evil list. But now, well now it is a different deal. Out of the blue, suddenly, this regime and its deeds have become the center of our focus, and it has been forced into our living rooms, newspaper baskets, and car radios; on an hourly basis. Oh how our people’s hearts are bleeding for those freedom-seeking revolutionary rebels…How we despise this stinky mean dictator … We can’t wait to see the bastard taken out and beheaded; preferably live on TV.
Now, here is what you won’t be hearing from our corporate-government-owned mainstream and corporate-foundation-owned pseudo alternative media. Up until very recently, as recent as two years ago, our government, our military and intelligence agencies worked hand-in-hand with this dictator and his regime. After 9/11 this dictator and his regime became one of our top choices for outsourcing our illegal torture and detention practices. In fact, our government always coordinated its bashing and name-calling of this dictator directly with him to help him boost his public standing and popularity in Syria. You see, there are ways to support dictator regimes, and then there are other ways. In ‘certain’ cases it is strategically beneficial to a dictator, or a military regime, or a kingdom, to be outwardly bashed and be cosmetically antagonized by ‘certain’ superpowers, or Israel. Those cosmetically issued bashing-threats go a long way towards improving a dictator’s popularity at home. You know what I’m talking about, right? Think the Saudi Kingdom and Israel. The Kingdom, while best friend and partner with Israel, prefers to be shown and known as Anti-Israel. It is a matter of survival … for ‘certain’ dictators. Now back to Syria.
During my work at the FBI after the September 11 Terrorist Attacks, I worked in a very large unit-room with more than 250 translators and analysts; with no individual rooms or even cubicles separating us. I worked with those from the Saudi Arabia desk, Iran Desk, Israel Desk, Turkey Desk …and of course the Syria Desk. And I can tell you with one hundred percent factual certainty that we, the United States Government and its Intelligence Agencies and its Pentagon and State Department, worked very ‘cozily’ with Syria’s military-intelligence regime. This same dictator we see exposed and bashed by our government and its tentacles- media, readily gave us everything we wanted, and more, and in return, we gave him ‘certain’ things he wanted from us; including outwardly expressed condemnation and evil name-calling.
I also want to remind you of our close partnership with the Syria regime in implementing illegal torture and detention practices. You see this same dictator’s torture practices that are being advertised as intolerable and war-worthy, were exactly the practices our government valued, appreciated, and cherished. Let me give you an example, a well-known documented example, that is [All Emphasis Mine]:
Maher Arar is a telecommunications engineer with dual Syrian and Canadian citizenship who resides in Canada. Arar’s story is frequently referred to as “extraordinary rendition” but the U.S. government insisted it was a case of deportation. Arar was detained during a layover at JFK in September 2002 on his way home to Canada. He was held without charges in solitary confinement in the US for nearly two weeks, questioned, and denied meaningful access to a lawyer.
The US government suspected him of being a member of Al Qaeda and deported him, not to Canada, his current home, but to his native Syria, even though its government is known to use torture. He was detained in Syria for almost a year, during which time he was tortured, according to the findings of a commission of inquiry ordered by the Canadian government, until his release to Canada. That commission publicly cleared Arar of any links to terrorism. The Syrian government now says that Arar is “completely innocent.”
Despite the recent public rhetoric, at the time of Arar’s deportation, Syria was working closely with the United States government in their “War on Terror. In November 2003, Cofer Black, then counterterrorism coordinator at the US State Department and former director of counterterrorism at the CIA, was quoted as saying “The Syrian government has provided some very useful assistance on al Qaeda in the past.” In September 2002, George Bush opposed the enactment of the “Syria Accountability Act” citing effectiveness of current sanctions and the ongoing diplomacy in the region. In addition, the administration noted the cooperation and support by Syria in fighting al-Qaida as a reason for its opposition to the “Syria Accountability Act”.
The Syrian government shared the results of its investigation with the United States. Arar believes that his torturers were given a dossier of specific questions by United States interrogators, noting that he was asked identical questions both in the United States and in Syria.
Allow me to recap here: The Syrian regime was the regime of choice for the US government when it came to rendition and torture practices. Arar was not the only US detainee sent, handed-over to Syria; others did not have the benefit of second western citizenship privileges. This was not about looking the other way. It was the US government’s tacit approval of the Syrian regime’s dictatorial torture practices. The US and the Syria regime worked very closely and shared intelligence-police-military information with each other.
The US media has conveniently forgotten all about our government’s approval and support of the Assad regime’s dictatorial and torture practices, and its partnership with this same regime in its dark and illegal operations.  Our media seem to have gone into their highly characteristic amnesiac mode. They don’t want people to know about the past. In fact, they don’t want people to know about the present either. For instance, they have been hard at work trying to twist and falsify the US government’s position and role in the recent uprising in Syria. Based on the fictional concoction they’ve been pouring out, Americans are under the false impression that we began our support for these rebels after the uprising, and as a reaction to the Assad regime’s retaliation against these freedom seekers. When in fact we started our operation last April-May, and actually manufactured-created this highly-coordinated and managed uprising and violence.  You can read my internationally reported coverage on this here, and stay tuned for more detailed coverage on Syria here at Boiling Frogs Post.


Report: Foreign Troops Begin to Spread Near the Villages of Al-Mafraq
Update 1: Today at 12:00 P.M. we contacted DOD Press Office via two voicemail messages and one e-mail asking for comment(s) on this story. As of 6:00 P.M. EST we have not heard back.
Update 2: Another journalist with a major mainstream media publication was told by his editors that there would be no coverage or follow up on these developments.
According to first-hand accounts and reports provided to Boiling Frogs Post by several sources in Jordan, during the last few hours foreign military groups, estimated at hundreds of individuals, began to spread near the villages of the north-Jordan city of “Al-Mafraq”, which is adjacent to the Jordanian and Syrian border.
According to one Jordanian military officer who asked to remain anonymous, hundreds of soldiers who speak languages ​other than Arabic were seen during the past two days in those areas moving back and forth in military vehicles between the King Hussein Air Base of al-Mafraq (10 km from the Syrian border), and the vicinity of Jordanian villages adjacent to the Syrian border, such as village Albaej (5 km from the border), the area around the dam of Sarhan, the villages of Zubaydiah and al-Nahdah adjacent to the Syrian border.
Another report received from our source in Amman identified an additional US-NATO Command Center in “al-Houshah,’ a village near Mafraq.
Our Iraqi journalist source in London provided us with the following related information:
“Some of the US forces that left the Ain al-Assad Air base in Iraq last Thursday, did not come back to the USA or its base in Germany, but were transferred to Jordan during the evening hours.”
The above information was further corroborated by our correspondent and advisor Nizar Nayouf who interviewed an employee in the London-based office of Royal Jordanian Airlines:
“At least one US aircraft carrying military personnel landed in the Prince Hassan Air base located about 100 km to the east of the city of Al-Mafraq.”
Earlier last week, Jordanian news websites disclosed that “Western officials have requested the King to allow establishing an electronic spy station in the north of Jordan (near the Syrian border) in order to access the Syrian army and contact Syrian high-rank officers for convincing them to make a military coup or (at least) rebel against the regime”. 
Nizar Nayouf, BFP advisor and correspondent on Syria in London, had the following statement on Al-Mafraq:
The al-Mafraq air base, which now includes Air Force Academy, was a starting point for “conspiratorial activities” by Jordan, The UK and Israel against Syria in the past, particularly in the 1960s. In September 1968, a Syrian commando Major, Salim Hatoom, who fled to Jordan with a number of officers after a failed coup attempt, established a camp from which he started a rebel military against the then left-wing government of Syria under president Nureddin al-Atassi and Salah Jadid. By the end of 1970s and early 1980s, the Syrian Islamic Brotherhood and their military wing “At-Taleeah al-Islamiyyah al-Muqatilah” (the Islamic Militant Vanguard) used the same base for its military struggle against president Hafez a-Assad regime, in which they were being trained by the Jordanian and Israeli intelligence agents, and cars were being bombed before they were sent to the streets of Syrian cities for the killing of innocents and undermining state facilities.”
Mr. Nayouf went on to emphasize the irony of the situation:
I guess history repeats itself but as farce…Last spring, that tens of Syrian soldiers, who fled to Jordan, were transferred to a camp west of the Jordanian city of “Salt”, in which officers from Israeli military intelligence (AMAN) began the investigation with them under the supervision of the Jordanian military intelligence. This was to extract information from them on issues related to the development of the Syrian army, weapons and training, especially after 2006.
We contacted our expert sources on US media and intelligence-military and were told that the US media has been told not to report on this latest development until Tuesday, December 13. Boiling Frogs Post is the first news website to report on these latest developments.
This story is developing and we await further details and confirmation from our sources in Turkey and Jordan. For additional Boiling Frogs Post Syria coverage see here and here.

US Media Remains Mute on ‘Already-Confirmed’ Operations
It’s now been exactly 24 days since I reportedon the ongoing joint US-NATO secret training camp in the USAir Force base in Incirlik, Turkey, which began operations in April- May 2011 to organize and expand the dissident base in Syria. I broke that story on November 21, here at Boiling Frogs Post, based on information provided to me by multiple sources including highly credible insiders in Turkey and government insiders here in the US. 18 days later Iranian Press TV ran the story with further confirmation based on intensive coverage and confirmation by the Turkish media. Impressively, despite far more serious pressure from the government, reporters in Turkey provided detailed coverage of the story I broke here in the US.
One extensively reported story had to do with BBC reporter John Simpson, who went to Turkey to follow up on the story we broke at Boiling Frogs Post, but was placed under surveillance, prevented from following up on the story of the US-NATO-Turkish-Syrian Rebel operation Center in Southern Turkey, stopped from interviewing Riad al Assad, and how BBC quickly excused the scandalous incident. Every major newspaper in Turkey covered this event. Sabah and Radikal were among dozens of TV and newspaper outlets in Turkey covering it.
Here is the spin placed on the story by BBC to make the incident look like ‘protecting Colonel Riad al Assad’ [All Emphasis Mine]:
The colonel’s name sounds close to but not quite the same as that of the President he wants to overthrow, Bashar al-Assad.He is based in a refugee camp at Apaydin, 9 miles (14km) from the town of Antakya and very close to the Syrian border. But he is not allowed to leave the camp, and cannot receive visitors.
To a considerable extent, this is for his own protection. The Turks seem to regard Colonel Asad as a potentially important figure for the future, and are determined that nothing untoward should happen to him.
As a result, getting to see Colonel Asad is remarkably difficult. No Turkish official wanted to help us, or indeed even speak about him on the record.
As we were filming his camp from a distance a group of Turkish soldiers briefly detained us. Yet the colonel is predictably keen to talk, and in the end we interviewed him via the internet.
To recap, 24 days ago Boiling Frogs Post broke the story on the US-NATO-Syrian Rebel Operation-Command Center in the US Air Base in Southern Turkey operating since May 2011. This story was first provided to all major US media, think NY Times, Washington Post, but no one was allowed to report due to ‘US government pressure.’ After we broke the story here at BFP, the Turkish media dared their government-military, and provided further confirmation and details. The story has since received coverage and confirmation by foreign publications such as Press TV and Russia TV. Still, not a peep in the US media, and that includes the corporate-foundation backed phony, aka Alternative Media.
Russia TV had good coverage on the latest here. And here is a Russia TV interview with James Corbett from Today:


Friday, 16. December 2011
 “They have had this division that ran the rebels there. They also help the rebels to smuggle arms into Syria, but also they have a communication division there in order to actually increase the number of defectors of the current Syrian army,” Sibel Edmonds
Interview, Russia Today, Dec 16,2011

Last night I was in the Russia Today studio for a brief interview on US-NATO-Turkey-Syrian Rebels’ operations in Southern Turkey since May 2011. What an evening! I arrived there after fighting atrocious DC traffic, running through pouring rain, all that followed by a fire alarm drill in the RT building right before the interview began!
I am not sure if they will publish the full interview session; maybe later. However, the following clip is on Russia’s new draft resolution on Syria with a few highlights from my interview with RT:

Turkey’s Sudden 180 Degree Turn on Syria
In the last few years a commonly and frequently used catch phrase among US policy makers and movers and shakers of the think tank industry when it comes to their ‘vision’ for the new Middle East has been ‘Moderate Islam.’ However, there is a literal and rational definition of ‘Moderately Islamic Government,’ then there is the real meaning, interpretation, implications and application of the term meant and used by the US and its Western extension when it comes to the New World Order. In a recent excellent analysis Professor James Petras sums up the US Empire’s new vehicle of choice for its global order in the Muslim world today:
“Moderate” Islamists have become the Empire’s ‘contraceptive of choice’ against any chance the massive Arab peoples’ revolt might give birth to substantive egalitarian social changes and bring those brutal pro- western officials, responsible for so many crimes against humanity, to justice .
The West and their client officials in the military and police have agreed to a kind of “power-sharing’ with the moderate/respectable (read ‘reactionary’) Islamist parties. The Islamists would be responsible for imposing orthodox economic policies and re-establishing ‘order’ (i.e. bolstering the existing one) in partnership with pro-multinational bank economists and pro US-EU generals and security officials.
The most frequently cited example by the ruling Western elites for their ideal ‘Moderate Islamic’ government has been the AKP government of Turkey, in power since 2001. The AK Party portrays itself as a liberal conservative party in the Turkish political spectrum that advocates a liberal market economy and Turkish membership in the European Union. In 2005, the AK Party was granted observer membership in the European People’s Party.
Dr. Petras’ description of Western-Chosen and Western-Favored ‘Moderate Islamic Government’ fits Turkey’s AKP leadership to a T. This Western role model for the Muslim ‘Arab world’ has suavely maintained popular support by maintaining a balance between an illusionary Islamic stand and rhetoric, a for-show-only tough stand on Israel, and carrying out its  daily US-NATO dictated to-do list and behind-the-scenes appeasement of its Western masters in the military and financial fields.
Turkey’s recent and sudden change of position on Syria is an excellent example illustrating the real meaning of Western Ideal Islamic government. Just check the headlines on developments in Syria-Turkey relations in the last few months, and you’ll see what is meant by a Western-Approved Moderate Islamic government, aka submissive puppy state governing under the banner of Islam and Allah for show while fully performing for their Western puppy-masters.
I reported on the ongoing joint US-NATO secret training camp in the US Air Force base in Incirlik, Turkey, which began operations in April- May 2011 to organize and expand the dissident base in Syria. I broke that story on November 21, here at Boiling Frogs Post, based on information provided to me by multiple sources including highly credible insiders in Turkey and government insiders here in the US. Of course the story is still completely blacked out by the US media until further notice from their government masters. However, you’ll find no shortage of daily news on Turkey’s toughly-spoken threats, viciously imposed sanctions, and its harboring of Free Syrian Army-Rebels.
What you won’t find in the Western media is the almost intimate relationship between Syria and Turkey as recent as a year ago. That context would bring about obvious questions, and questions would enforce critical thinking, and critical thinking is one thing our masters and their media extensions don’t want you to get into. So I’ll take it upon myself to provide you with a brief background on how things were between the two nations until Western Masters snapped their fingers for their favorite moderately Islamic government in Turkey.
In May 2010, during President Assad’s visit to Turkey, the Turkish President made the following statement during a press conference:
For his part, President Gul pointed out in his speech that Turkey shares long borders with Syria, and that there are big joint projects for the interests of the two countries’ peoples, noting that important and significant developments have recently taken place in both countries, and that relations between them, carried out by officials and on the popular levels, are based on solid foundations.
President Assad reaffirmed the same sentiment:
He affirmed that Syrian-Turkish relations and their considerable positive outcomes have become a reality in politics, economy and all other fields that no one can deny. “In the past when we said reality it meant having something imposed on us and accepting it, but today this status quo is imposed and created itself by itself… It is a reality that is subject to our interests. We are not subject to it at all. It has not come from outside… The content of this reality is our mutual need for each other as well as our joint interests and similar cultures.”
The following report is from an April 2009 article published by Zaman:
As a sign of increased confidence in relations, Turkey and neighboring Syria plan to sign a letter of intent giving the green light for cooperation in the defense industry. The letter of intent will be signed on the sidelines of the 9th International Defense Industry Fair (IDEF’09), due to start today in Istanbul at the Tüyap Fair, Convention and Congress Center in Istanbul’s Büyükçekmece. Turkish defense industry sources told Today’s Zaman that the letter of intent to be signed between the two countries is a sign of the level of political relations reached between Turkey and Syria.
And this article in May 2009 emphasizes the close relationship and similarities between Presidents Gul and Assad, and the plans for furthering trade agreements-relations between Turkey and Syria:
Qabalan, a long-time journalist, presented his credentials to President Gül last Monday. He noted that his private talk with Gül at the Çankaya presidential palace was the best 15 or 20 minutes of his life. “He is a perfect man and a perfect leader,” he said of President Gül. As a journalist, Qabalan had conducted an interview with Gül during Syrian President Bashar Assad’s 2004 visit to Turkey. He described Gül as a strikingly modest person and said he believed that Assad and Gül had similar personalities, which would facilitate the improvement of relations between the two countries during Gül’s visit.
The Syrian ambassador noted that during Gül’s visit, the two countries would sign deals on trade and joint projects. Gül, who will be the first Turkish president to visit Aleppo, will attend the opening ceremonies of a number of Turkish hotels in Syria.
In less than a year, with quantum speed, and to the great satisfaction of its US-NATO masters, Turkey made its 180 degree turn. The following paragraphs from Turkish Newspaper Hurriyet in November of this year provide a good summary of this new status-stand:
Jeffrey Feltman, assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs, during his testimony on Syria at the U.S. Senate this week, summarized Turkey’s contribution to the events in Syria in three points: Sheltering refugees, opening up a space for Syrian oppositions to organize and imposing arms embargo on the Syrian regime. Luke Bronin, deputy assistant secretary at Department of Treasury, at the same panel, stated,”it is hard to overstate Turkey’s break with Syria.” Both officials compared Ankara’s close relations with Damascus only a year ago with today and appeared as if they were explaining a miracle taking place and they are certainly not alone.
One senior official from Ankara this week gave detailed account about how Turkey’s Syrian policy evolved over the summer. According to this official, “pursuing realist policy to protect our economic interests in Syria was one of the options. But we quickly brushed aside this option as we thought such policy only give more room to Assad to increase his pressure, possibly kill or torture many more people. In such a turn of events, we might have ended up facing with 300 to 500 thousand people in our borders as refugees.”
US-NATO’s assigned new role and position for Turkey is clearly stated in these excerpts:
Feltman said when we look at how far we came in recent weeks with regard to Syria, “I can basically say Assad is finished.” Feltman, for the first time, publicly mentioned there is the idea floating around of organizing an international contact group for Syria, one similarly and successfully done in the Libya case.
Turkey must lead such international gatherings to accelerate the transition in Syria. All indications show we are getting closer by day to that point and this time Turkey cannot excuse itself from leading.
Only yesterday there came headlines which read: Pentagon Appoints Turkey to Police Iraq & Confront Iran.
The U.S. secretary of defense is visiting NATO ally Turkey. He arrived in the Turkish capital, Ankara, after attending a withdrawal ceremony Thursday in Bagdad of American troops all of whom are due to leave by the end of the month. With the U.S. withdrawal, Turkey is now being seen by Washington as playing a potential key role in Iraq.
The NATO allies are already increasingly cooperating in the region. Last month, the U.S. transferred drones from Iraq to the Turkish airbase of Incirlik close to the Iraqi border.
“I suppose many more drones, flying over Iraq in order to continue to monitoring things,” said Ozel. “And I guess they want Incirlik to be open, more open, to American use as well. Politically, they would want Turkey to make sure that things never get of hand between Kurds and Arabs. And in [a] way maintaining the autonomy or viability of the Kurdistan regional government territory.” The semi-autonomous Iraqi Kurdish region, which borders Turkey, is, according to observers, strategically important to Washington.
Diplomatic columnist Semih Idiz for the Turkish daily Milliyet says Ankara shares Washington’s concerns about growing Iranian influence in Iraq. “The increase of the Iranian through Shia elements in Iraq, that is what Turkey will be worried about,” added Idiz. “And with Turkey there is a political competition going on for influence between Iran and Turkey.”
The Erdogan-Gul government may excel in public performances, such as tough-talk on Israel solely put on to appease their constituents while doing business as usual behind the scenes. They may be good at appearing as committed Muslim men serving their Muslim nation on behalf of their people. But when it comes to action and real servitude, they are not able to hide their real masters; those who come first-before Islam or maybe even Allah. They are and have been accessory to murders, and murders to be committed per order of their US-NATO masters in the game of Muslims killing Muslims. And that my friend is anything but moderately Islamic in the real sense.

Thursday, 22. December 2011
I am looking at a fully-packed schedule for today. Peter and I will be interviewing Pepe Escobar on Syria-Turkey-Jordan. I am scheduled for an interview-analysis session with Russia Today. I have several phone calls scheduled with my sources on the latest developments in Syria. And there are tons of topics/issues/cases I want to cover and talk about that have to wait until things calm down a bit … which almost never happens.
Let’s start with Jordan. Last week we broke the story on reported US-NATO troops and operations in Jordan- on the Jordanian-Syrian border. Follow-ups to our report were carried out by only a few select international news organizations. Pepe Escobar had an excellent article on that (see here).
Today I received this report on the generous financial aid granted to Jordan by the United States.
AMMAN, Dec. 20 (Xinhua) — The United States will provide Jordan with 660 million U.S. dollars in 2012 as economic and military assistance, Jordan’s ministry of planning and international cooperation said Tuesday…The U.S. assistance to Jordan from 2007 to 2011 reached 2.4 billion, according to the ministry.
You see, Jordan is fairly dependent on US generosity, aka military-financial aid. And as expected, that dependency tends to ‘color’ a lot of things. Come to think of it, almost every member of the so-called Arab League appears to have similar dependencies: US financial-military aid and support to maintain and sustain their regimes’ existence. Hello, you remember our atrocious Bahrain regime, no? Oh well, they too are part of this ‘Arab League.’ So basically, these dependent puppet dictator regimes are now in charge of determining Syria’s level of dictatorship and soon–to-come final destiny. Ironic, no? Okay, I’ll have more on this when I reach the ‘calm’ period…
Next, I want you to monitor the Antiwar.Com website for a while. This once-upon-a-time excellent website has been going through tremendous not so pretty changes. Coincidentally, these changes coincide with recent mysterious appearances of their donor angels. What I want you to look for and keep tabs on:
1- More and more they’ve been citing articles and news from their once-culprit foe US MSM. Their updates are filled with NYT, WP, CNN, Huffington Post …created twists and spins.
2- If you remember, a few months ago they put on this publicity and PR campaign for the Soros-Rockefeller funded NGO who actually gave Obama an award for being the most transparent president of the United States.
3- Check out their author column. Do you notice my name there? Well, since the unnamed mysterious donors showed up, about 2 years ago, to round up their half a million dollars a year fund, they have decided to keep my name but completely censor anything I write on their ‘once-upon-a-time’ issues: police state, perpetual wars, secrecy, whistleblowers…
4- Contrary to their title, name, they have been loudly and repeatedly and unquestioningly reporting only the unsupported numbers killed by the Assad regime in Syria, Assad’s alleged inflicted massacres, and …Now, for a site called AntiWar, they are either willingly or unintentionally beating the war drums and spreading unconfirmed propaganda, exactly the same way our infamous MSM has been doing…
It is truly a shame. I like and have been following a few of their excellent editorial writers such as Raimondo and Giraldi. They usually have a good selection of editorials. And as I said, they used to be exemplary as an independent news roundup site on civil liberties and war related topics. 
I’ll have more on AW, and will inquire about their unnamed mysterious funder angels, but please go and review their last two year archives, and start accumulating your own research data…You may also want to send them e-mails-notes and encourage them to go back to what they used to be: an alternative, not an echo wall for the MSM. Hopefully they are not beyond rescue, and if they are, and they prove to be, then, I suggest their public donors look elsewhere to support…
I’ll be on Russia Today for an interview. I’ll post the clip as soon as it becomes available.

Peter B. Collins Podcast Show Interview
Cutting through the disinformation and spin, Sibel Edmonds and Pepe Escobar reveal back stories about the conflict in Syria that are not reported in the mainstream media.
Edmonds has deep sources in Turkey, Iran, Syria, and the US policy community, and has broken a number of recent developments at Boiling Frogs Post.  Pepe Escobar has also done great enterprise reporting and analysis at Asia Times.  Together, they add a great deal of information about the players who are fighting the Assad regime, the increasingly shrill calls for Assad’s removal from Washington and Paris, and recent reports of likely NATO-aligned fighters assembling near the Jordan-Syria border. 
Escobar sees this as a proxy battle between US/NATO/Israel and a growing alliance between Russia and China, with all eyes on the oil and gas reserves of the Caspian basin.  We discuss Turkey’s role in some depth, and its desire to crush the Kurds of northern Iraq and southern Turkey; we talk about Iran’s intentions toward Syria and Iraq after the US withdrawal, and Iran’s own “Kurdish problem”.  Escobar predicts that 2012 will be a year of “creative destruction”, and sees a return to pre-9/11 dynamics in the region.  He also describes the House of Saud as the international center of the counter-revolution in response to the “Arab Spring”. 
Edmonds, who lived in Iran at the start of the Islamic revolution, talks about Iran’s interests and Jordan’s billions of dollars in US military aid since 2007.  It’s best to look at a map of the region as you listen, so you can appreciate the geographical and resource ties of the various neighbors.

MSM News, 6 Months Late: “Obama Secretly Preparing for Syria Intervention”
This morning I woke up to the following news headlines. Let me correct myself: This morning I found the US media and their quasi extension reporting on stale, at least 6-month old US operations on Syria. Now, that’s much better. I think it is safe to assume that the media has been given a ‘green light’ by the White House and Pentagon to report on long-ongoing war preparations, aka ‘intervention’ plans, on Syria while making it sound as fresh-new-recent. Let’s read together:
As the violence in Syria spirals out of control, top officials in President Barack Obama‘s administration are quietly preparing options for how to assist the Syrian opposition, including gaming out the unlikely option of setting up a no-fly zone in Syria and preparing for another major diplomatic initiative.
And here is the almost comical egregious part:
After several weeks of having no top-level administration meetings to discuss the Syria crisis, the National Security Council (NSC) has begun an informal, quiet interagency process to create and collect options for aiding the Syrian opposition, two administration officials confirmed to The Cable.
Right! According to these ‘reporters’, up until now our imperialistic hawks have been sitting on their butts and doing absolutely nothing on Syria’s months-long prewar crisis! Just read the following by MSM’s favorite source WINEP, and please try not to laugh:
Andrew Tabler, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said that the administration was caught off-guard by how the opposition became militarized so quickly. The administration’s message had been to urge the opposition to remain peaceful, but that ship has now sailed, he said.
All right; I’ll forgive you for laughing out loud. I admit; I laughed so hard I ended up with the hiccups. Now, let’s look at the casual introduction of Washington’s main artery, front, in executing their next takeover [All Emphasis Mine]:
The options that are under consideration include establishing a humanitarian corridor or safe zone for civilians in Syria along the Turkish border, extending humanitarian aid to the Syrian rebels, providing medical aid to Syrian clinics, engaging more with the external and internal opposition, forming an international contact group, or appointing a special coordinator for working with the Syrian opposition (as was done in Libya), according to the two officials, both of whom are familiar with the discussions but not in attendance at the meetings.
Basically, the Washington Bosses are telling their ‘boys’ what they’ve been doing since last May in Turkey, inside the Incirlik base, but tweaking the time-line, changing it to  soon-to-come action plans.
A few months ago these same MSM dudes were given all the documents and witnesses on the operations mentioned above which began in May 2011. I broke the story (since the MSM and their quasi buddies refused to run it) in November. And let me provide you with every single plan-operation quoted by the media as ‘soon-to-come,’ and show you how every single one was already reported here at Boiling Frogs Post based on our military sources in Turkey and the US:
On November 21, we reported that:
The joint US-NATO secret training camp in the US air force base in Incirlik, Turkey, began operations in April- May 2011 to organize and expand the dissident base in Syria.
Col. Riad al-Assad has been in Turkey, working with U.S. & NATO, right inside the US Incirlik Base in Turkey, to do exactly what he vehemently denies: smuggle US weapons into Syria, participate in US psychological and information warfare inside Syria as the middle-man whom Syrian protesters tend to trust, and help with funneling intelligence and military operators across the border and night-time drop offs by air.
The HQ also includes an information warfare division where US-NATO crafted communications are directed to dissidents in Syria via the core group of Syrian military and Intelligence defectors.
Just compare the facts we reported on November 21 to the Washington ‘plans’ quoted by the Media as ‘soon-to-come’:
The options that are under consideration include establishing a humanitarian corridor or safe zone for civilians in Syria along the Turkish border, extending humanitarian aid to the Syrian rebels, providing medical aid to Syrian clinics, engaging more with the external and internal opposition, forming an international contact group, or appointing a special coordinator for working with the Syrian opposition (as was done in Libya), according to the two officials, both of whom are familiar with the discussions but not in attendance at the meetings.
Next, on December 3rd, we reported the following on the intentional censorship of these facts by the US media:
The story above only goes as far as ‘France’ and the French factor. It stops short of France and other NATO member nations led by the United States in NATO member country-Turkey.
I immediately started checking our infamous US mainstream media sites- still nothing on this significant information. I then contacted one of my high-level sources and asked why he had come to me with his documented report instead of going directly to the big guys. With several credible insiders as his corroborators and a high-level official in Turkey, he would have no problem getting their attention. And his response? Well here it is minus a few expletives:
Who said we didn’t go to MSM first? We got them the info back in October. First they were interested and drooling. At least the reporters. Then, they disappeared. We sat and waited for a few weeks, and no one followed up. It is Turkey. It is NATO. It is our CIA guys. The media hot shots would not touch those cases without State Department sanction attached…
By the way, our report, these confirmed facts, were reported by major international news outlets, and several major Turkish newspapers ran further confirmation reports. Here is my interview with Russia Today on the story:
Well, ladies and gentlemen, here we are: the US mainstream media has begun reporting on the real operations albeit with dictated time-line adjustments, twisted facts and a highly-adjusted tone. I am going to correct myself one more time:
The controlled reporting and propaganda by the Washington war machine has not been limited to the US mainstream media. Many popular quasi alternative channels have followed the exact same trend, the most troubling one being AntiWar.Com. For several months they refused to run any of these confirmed reports while they ran every single bit of propaganda coverage by the US mainstream media on Syria. Today, with the green light from Washington, and with the US MSM in the forefront, they ran the neocon-produced and widely neocon-quoted article on Obama’s not-so-secret plans on Syria. Check it out here.
I published a brief commentary on the very troubling switch of position and changes at AntiWar.Com, a site that I used to support and consider one of my favorites. Since their management change they have been banning not only me but other well-respected true alternatives. And they have been losing many supporters while gaining mystery-undisclosed funders. But the most troubling change is their consistent coverage of the New York Times, Washington Post and the rest of the US government and corporate propaganda machine. I have researchers who are compiling data on their recent changes, and running background checks on their new team members who have successfully altered this once truly valuable source of information.
I despise hypocrisy, and hypocrisy appears to be one of their newly gained characteristics. On one hand, they trash the US mainstream media and Soros-Funded quasi alternatives for smearing Ron Paul, and they pound us with the unreliability and falsehood of the MSM. And I completely agree with those positions. Yet, on the other hand, every single day they fill their entire website with the same exact MSM produced war propaganda and falsehoods. As I have said before, I hope it is not too late to put them back on track during this war-filled period when real AntiWar information sources are badly needed. And I hope you will all help with getting this accomplished. We have more than enough war propaganda machines, and cannot afford to lose the very few who were once on our side.

Time to ‘Out’ Others as Well
During the last few days I have been watching events unfold on the Al Jazeera front, and I must say, despite the exposé coming out way too late, I am delighted to see this propaganda machine exposed. The headlines read: Key staffs from Al Jazeera’s Beirut Bureau have resigned citing “bias” in the channel’s stance on the conflict in Syria.
Here are a few excerpts from decent coverage at RT:
Bureau Managing Director Hassan Shaaban reportedly quit last week, after his correspondent and producer had walked out in protest.
A source told the Lebanese paper Al Akhbar that Al Jazeera’s Beirut correspondent Ali Hashem had quit over the channel’s stance on covering events in Syria. “… his position [which] changed after the station refused to show photos he had taken of armed fighters clashing with the Syrian Army in Wadi Khaled. Instead [Al Jazeera] lambasted him as a shabeeh [implying a regime loyalist],” a source told Lebanese press.
Ali Hashem was also infuriated by Al Jazeera’s refusal to cover a crackdown by the King of Bahrain while twisting its Syria angle. “[In Bahrain], we were seeing pictures of a people being butchered by the ‘Gulf’s oppression machine’, and for Al Jazeera, silence was the name of the game,” he said.
The Beirut bureau’s producer also quit claiming Al Jazeera had totally ignored Syria’s constitutional reform referendum, which saw a 57% turnout with 90% voting for change.
Journalist and author Afshin Rattansi, who worked for Al Jazeera, told RT that, “sadly”, the channel had become one-sided voice for the Qatari government’s stance against Bashar al-Assad, having begun as the region’s revolutionary broadcaster.
And here is an excellent quote from the piece:
“It is very disturbing to hear how Al Jazeera is now becoming this regional player for foreign policy in a way that some would arguably say the BBC and others have been for decades,” he said. “If Al Jazeera Arabic is going to take a war-like stance after [the] Qatari government, this would be very ill.”
“There is the courage of these journalists, however, in saying ‘Look, this is not the way we should be covering this. There are elements of Al-Qaeda in there,’” Rattansi concluded. “The way Al Jazeera Arabic has covered the story of Syria is completely one-sided.”
I hate to gloat (I really do!), but we at Boiling Frogs Post exposed this propaganda machine’s false, biased and one-sided Syria coverage exactly three months ago on December 12, 2011:
Is Al Jazeera a Distant Cousin of the New York Times?!
Faux Syria Coverage by Western Media’s Illegitimate Child
Yesterday we broke the developing story of the US-NATO troop deployment on the Jordanian-Syrian Border. I’ve been monitoring the media for any relevant coverage. So far I have found ‘none.’ Then, today I found a very twisted, one-sided, and completely West-Driven video report on some developments along the Syrian-Jordanian border. The report comes from the long-bought and independence-imposter news agency Al-Jazeera, you know the ones who heavily beat the war drums during Libya development? Okay, please watch the following Faux Video Report by Al-Jazeera Drummer Boys and Girls, and let me know all the things you find wrong, missing, and ‘influenced’ with it:
Allow me go fist: no comments asked or requested from the Syrian government. No mentioning of the recent developments in Jordan … I think these pretenders have some gene-pool connection to the US media. Maybe a distant cousin? An illegitimate child? Now your turn…
And a few days later, on December 15, 2011, we exposed BBC’s usual propaganda operation here.
And of course we went after no-longer-AntiWar AntiWar.Com for exclusively covering BBC, Al Jazeera, NY Times, and the rest of the dirty cabal for months at their once-upon-a-time AntiWar site. You can see our thorough coverage of this ProWar site here, here, here, and here. I think it is way past time to see headlines on this sadly-converted site from alternative to mainstream propaganda. Maybe a video report like this one:/span>
