Syria illustrates the gap between what Western politicians pretend to be able to do and what they actually can do.

By DOUGLAS MURRAY
British Foreign Secretary William Hague described the killing of at least 108 people last Friday in the Syrian town of Houla as "deeply disturbing." The U.K. talked of summoning the Syrian chargés d'affaires to the Foreign Office. Meanwhile Deputy Prime Minister and Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg used an interview over the weekend to escalate the rhetoric further: As Bashar Assad's forces pushed on for another day, Mr. Clegg said that Britain may ban anybody involved in massacring Syrian civilians from attending the London Olympics this summer.

It is now more than a year since Assad—already an enemy and terror-sponsor—began using his security forces in a full-scale assault against the people of the country he treats as family property. And at the end of that year what do we do? Make it clear to any Syrian Baath Party general too busy at work lately to have kept up with the national lacrosse team that if he still thinks he's going to cheer them on while sipping mint tea in London this summer, then he's got another think coming. Damascus is quaking, no doubt.

The old saw in international affairs is that you should always carry a carrot and a stick. The problem for Mr. Clegg, the British government and the wider community of democratic nations is not just that they don't have any sticks, but that they also no longer have any particularly large carrots. What is playing out from London is a farce. But it is emblematic of a wider one. As the tragedy escalates for the Syrian people, a new reality of power is emerging. It's a reality in which the dictators have understood us better and more honestly than we are willing to understand ourselves.

For what Mr. Clegg may know but not want to admit—and what everybody else knows and does not want to admit—is that though we may talk somewhat tough, there is nothing at all that we are going to do. People will say, "But what about the operation in Libya? Didn't London, Washington and Paris stop Moammar Gadhafi from massacring the people of Libya?" Yes they did, and mighty good fortune it was that the array of international powers managed to defeat Gadhafi's scattergun forces before the mission drained us of the money, munitions and political will necessary to keep it going. But Libya, is it now very clear, will be it. The mission was a success. And we never want to have to do anything like that again.

Firstly, for perfectly cynical electoral reasons. As Nicolas Sarkozy's defeat this month in France demonstrated, absolutely no domestic political benefit was gained for any party involved in Libya—though there would have been plenty at stake if the mission had gone wrong. More importantly, the Western allies' forces are still recovering from that engagement, despite it having been very low-level. Not only has the British government still not restocked its munitions to pre-Libya levels, it doesn't seem likely to do so anytime in the foreseeable future. Hoping people will take us for a wasp that can sting many times, we turn out to more closely resemble one of those summer-drunk bees, lucky to manage a single random sting before falling into a slump.

At a moment like this, of course, the world—not least the people of Syria, minus the 33 more who were killed in Hama on Sunday, or the others who will be killed between the time of this writing and the time of publication—would normally look to America to sort out the situation.

But it is now 14 months since U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton told CBS's "Face the Nation" that while she "deplored the violence" in Syria, intervention would only become likely "if there were a coalition of the international community, if there was the passage of a Security Council resolution, if there were a call by the Arab League, if there was a condemnation that was universal." But as she pointed out, "that is not going to happen because I don't think it is yet clear what will occur, what will unfold." Well now it is clear, and has been for some time, what would unfold: More than 10,000 Syrians have been killed since Mrs. Clinton uttered those words in March 2011. But Washington remains in its CBS interview phase, still reckoning that nothing can be done unless something can be arranged through the Security Council (which does not work) or the Arab League (which is even less effective).

What we are now see unfolding around Syria is the result of a gap between what our politicians pretend to be able to do and what they are actually able to do, in an era in which everything, from financial resources to political will, is in short supply.

The fact—unpalatable as it may be—is that the Syrian dictatorship can do what it likes. Even more worryingly, their backers in Iran know they can do what they like. As well as sending arms and troops to the Syrian government and boasting that it is lying about its nuclear program, Iran is also now also boasting of sending arms and troops to Syria. And nobody is going to do anything to stop them.

We are so used to the niceties of international convention that it is sometimes hard to notice the moment when the ground shifts. The exit from this period of suspended diplomatic reality will be harsh. In the last few decades, the deputy prime minister or foreign secretary of a country like Britain could talk a very good talk: "unacceptable," "utterly condemn," "strongly worded letters" and so on, and people listened with respect. Though British power was waning, these niceties were treated as a demonstration of real strength and not some form of play-acting. But all the time it happened in the knowledge that if things got really bad, Britain might send some troops or lend a base here or there, but only American heavy-lifting and political leadership would actually get anything done. And then, some years ago, the tide of American leadership started to go out.

That fact may be felt in America last, but it is being felt in Syria first. In the meantime, it has also left a lot of allies standing naked on the beach still pretending to do their thing. Among them are the British, holding no particular carrots, holding no sticks whatsoever, and hoping above hope that the threatened withdrawal of a relay baton might make a blood-stained dictator behave a little bit better. Too late for that game.

He knows his country is being destabilised and he's marked for ragime change by the americans and their allies.

Check out what webster tarpley thinks after being there in person. No point reading the above mainstream propaganda news.

Real news below:

In the below video Tarpley tells it how it is. Mercenaries shipped over from libya and other parts of the world are being armed and made to cause hell to help bring in Nato for ragime change and puppet government like Iraq and libya which are still suffering under cia backed alqeada.

Info on Alqeada support structure:

The below video of another American political commentator hold no bars in his honest opinion
and it's nice to see instead of someone posting a picture of dead bodies and saying some bs
about how nato is powerless because russia and china know what bs is going on.

Sorry no embed on this one unless someone knows how to with this below video player:

The below american political commentator sums it up nicely.

http://www.presstv.ir/detail/224375.html



Terrorist snipers have been caught in the past.

I didn't want to attack zionists again but all the info I found seems to point to idf snipers being the best in the death squads. Sorry.

below information from: http://www.blacklistednews.com/view.asp?ID=1263

He says that on March 28, 2005, Americans arrested 19 Mossad agents who fired twice on a US Marine checkpoint. The Marines beat up the Mossad agents and tore off their Star-of-David necklaces. (The US media incorrectly said the agents were Americans.) The Mossad agents said they were employees of Zapata Engineering, which helps the CIA conduct interrogations, and also manages US ammo dumps and US motor pools in Iraq.

Anderson Cooper of CNN showed this video of snipers killing U.S. troops in Iraq on his October 18, 2006 show. CNN says it obtained the video from a "representative" of an unnamed "insurgent leader." Bear in mind that Anderson Cooper used to work for the CIA.

Richard Wilson's hypothesis: Israeli soldiers and/or Mossad agents are killing our soldiers in Iraq in order to enrage American troops so that the slaughter continues.

Proof: At the very beginning of this video clip, you see a rifle with a video camera attached to it. This weapon is made by the Rafael company, an Israeli arms manufacturer, that also makes IEDs. If you watch the video all the way through, it explains how this rifle works. CNN stated that the camera used to film these shootings was not a mounted rifle camera. But as you watch the video, you see that with each shot fired, the camera recoils. That would only happen if it were mounted on the rifle. Why is this significant? Because this kind of rifle-camera is extremely sophisticated and not available to your average Iraqi insurgent. I mean, it's not exactly an easily obtainable Saturday night special! Something this sophisticated points to Mossad.

When I read about the company called zapata I realised that these war criminals like cheney profit hugely by the ongoing work and then the cleanup effort afterwards. Check this out:

Zapata Engineering was awarded a contract for munitions removal worth up to $1.475 billion over a period of five years, which includes four option years. This is a worldwide contract but most of the work will be performed in Iraq and Afghanistan. And soon libya and syria no doubt.


It took me some time but I found the idf sniper video on vimeo. It's pretty obvious that the camera rifle is very sophisticated.

http://vimeo.com/26902861

How do you embed vimeo?

The Juba video is above from Iraq as example of destabilisation efforts.

Juba is an IDF sniper hunting US troops in Iraq using hi-tech Israeli wi-fi cams linked to HQ then uplinked to net in real time he had document +200 confirmed kills.

M1 Abrams tanks are service by numerous Israeli mechanics like Rhambo in 1990 Gulf served in IDF. The motherboards are Israeli made just like Pres. Clinton's Downed AF2 Chopper killing all on board as Bill cancelled his trip.
These motherboard trigger C4 explosive IED which are not so "improvised devices" but real hi-tech plastic explosive bombs. These perps have been caught and released by higher ups at checkpoints taking shots at our soldiers. Juba is a Network of Mossad & IDF, aka MEGA.

Cue in the cheesy Arab music and you have some false flag Mossad fun and games

What I don't get, is why Russia is condoning these monstrous actions. There is nothing for them there, they aren't gaining much, if anything at all. The fact is that people are being murdered by their government, while by proxy this government is being encouraged by non compliance of retalitation from their fellow governments around them.

Wrong travvy , you forget the Syria-Russian Naval Base/Tartus .
and :

Russia’s economic stakes in Syria are equally high. Russia has concluded US$4 billion worth of arms contracts with Syria and has invested some $20 billion in Syrian infrastructure,
energy and tourism. Russia’s Stroitransgaz is building a natural gas processing plant and supporting an Arab gas pipeline while Tatneft, which is already pumping Syrian oil, announced earlier this year that it would invest $12.8m in oil exploration near the Iraqi border.

If the economic and strategic stakes are high, they pale from Russia’s perspective compared to the potential fallout if Assad’s opponents prevail .

*Sigh*

Yessir, Assad is laughing his ass off murdering the righteous FREEDOM FIGHTERS to maintain his dictatorial REGIME.


Nigga plz.


Ill tell you one thing, when, or if rather, Americans wake up to the criminals that are continuously fucking them up the beehind and decide to act against it.. You best be sure to expect to be branded as a terrorist.

The term freedom fighter is only used when it suits those uber criminals pretending to have ANY moral highground in judging other heads of state. Not even touching the fact those killings are done by their own assets and used as anti Assad propaganda to gain control. The chance Assad is responsible is about 1/1000.

So effing hypocritical it isnt funny anymore.

I didn't realize. Just like the west, Russia seems to be playing chess in the Middle East. If they knew what was good for their people, they wouldn't be playing games.
