UPDATE 6th MAY
Re-Blogging this from a few months baxck as the US gets ready to start bombing, with the ridiculous pretext of chemical weapons, see here Washington fabricates chemical weapons pretext for war against Syria and Israel already started bombing...
The final logic of Capitalism is war. The excuse of a ‘chemical weapons’ in Syria is as false as Saddam’s secret weapons. This time round more millions of innocents will die, to boost the profits of the US ‘War Economy’ Corporations who control the US Congress. This time round there is little protest, nobody believes they can be serious, but this war is becoming daily more certain. Now is the time for the US and UK public to stop a barbaric air blitz…
NATO poised to invade Syria – U.S. fleet on Syrian coast, 10,000 troops ready to go
In fact, we may be so close to another mid-eastern war that Syrian President Bashir Al-Assad is emphatically trying to find an exit:
In a regional tour conducted last week, Syrian Vice-Minister of the Exterior Faisal al-Miqdad delivered requests on behalf of al-Assad to Venezuelan, Cuban, and Ecuadorian authorities. The letters allegedly enquire into the possibility of asylum for al-Assad, his family, and a tightknit circle of advisors and collaborators.

“We have (US) special operations forces at the right posture, they don’t have to be sent,” an unnamed US official told The Australian, which suggested that US military troops are already near Syria and ready to intervene in the conflict, if necessary
Syria: Iraq 2.0, another false-flag invasion, rated XXX byJohn Robles
The US and NATO are set to invade Syria, something many of us have been warning about for a while now. It has been obvious that they have been looking for a pretext and that pretext has already been injected into the public debate. That pretext: chemical weapons, revealed by Fox News and the Director of the CIA, the same two sources that brought us all of the Iraq invasion lies.
Sadly no matter how questionable or fabricated the pretext is, it appears that there is nothing we can do except sit back and watch the US and its surrogates invade and decimate yet another nation.
The whole Syrian scenario is right out of the Iraq-Afghanistan invasion playbook. We know that the US and its surrogates, including NATO, Sunni Arab partners and Israel, are all waiting for a pretext and preparing for an invasion of Syria and Iran. They want to invade for resources and pre-planned geopolitical goals, this is a given, the only problem is there has not been enough of a reason to, until now. Thanks to whom? Once again, Fox News.
Syria’s WMD: Real Threat or ‘Pretext for Intervention’?
US armada gathers off coast of Syria
– Craig Brown, staff writer
The US and Europe are whipping up fear of chemical weapons as a pretext to intervene in Syria, President Bashar al-Assad’s government said on Thursday, after NBC News reported that US officials told their reporters that Syria had just “locked and loaded” sarin gas into aerial bombs.
Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad: “We fear there is a conspiracy to provide a pretext for any subsequent interventions in Syria by these countries that are increasing pressure on Syria.” Interviewed on Lebanon’s Al Manar television Thursday, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said, “Syria stresses again, for the tenth, the hundredth time, that if we had such weapons, they would not be used against its people. We would not commit suicide. We fear there is a conspiracy to provide a pretext for any subsequent interventions in Syria by these countries that are increasing pressure on Syria.” He warned that any such intervention would be “catastrophic.”
Mekdad also told the UK’s Sky News Thursday that he doesn’t even know if the Assad regime has chemical weapons. He reportedly said: “We don’t know if we have them or not.”
The Syrian Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources reported in 2010 that there is evidence for large amounts of oil shale in the region of Khanasser in the district of the Syrian city of Aleppo, amounting to about 37 billion tons, with a thickness of up to 240 meters, and that the oil therein would be of a very high quality and low sulphur content.
