IS JOHN KERRY SECRETLY MOVING AMERICA AND RUSSIA INTO WAR?
Dear Conservative Friend,
The LIES about Syria continue to come from the Obama administration. The American people—YOU—and the United States Congress have mounted extreme pressure on the war-leaning administration to cause President Obama to put the Syrian military strike ON HOLD!
The administration is using the United Nations to eventually get the “green light” for a military strike. Secretary of State John Kerry apparently is using the Russian-Syrian deal to get a U.N. mandate to attack Syria, which would bypass Congress.
According to CNN: “The next step in implementing the agreement is to get a U.N. resolution. But on that front, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov accused U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry ‘and his Western allies’ Monday of misunderstanding the deal, according to Russia’s state-run Itar-Tass news agency. The deal does not say that a U.N. resolution will be under Chapter 7 of the U.N. Charter, Lavrov said. Chapter 7 potentially authorizes the use of force. Lavrov said comments by Kerry ‘show unwillingness to read the document’ that Russia and the United States agreed to. Kerry said Monday that a U.N. resolution will need to include the possibility of force. ‘If the Assad regime believes that this is not enforceable, then they will play games,’ he said.”
Secretary of State John Kerry needs to realize if he continues to pressure Syria, he must go before Congress for authorization for war!
History has proven that the Obama Administration prefers to go around Congress and appeal to the alleged authority of international organizations for making war. It looks as if the White House is using this deal to slip in a “sanctioned approval” to attack Syria if Syria breaches the deal. Of course, it will be easy to then figure out a way to claim that Assad has break the terms of the U.N. arrangement.
A United Nations resolution could come at any moment. The annual United Nations’ General Assembly session begins on Monday.
Apparently, at the last minute, the Obama administration will back down on including an armed threat in a United Nations motion on Syria’s chemical weapons, to avoid a direct confrontation at the U.N. with Russia, as Russia will soon give a 100-page report to the world body as early as Monday, showing that the Syrian rebels were the ones using nerve gas.
The major powers of the United States, Britain and France backed off of that military option demand to make way for the entire Security Council (including Russia and China) to force an approval of a resolution calling for Syria’s chemical weapons to be destroyed.
The resolution is based upon a supposed agreement reached last Saturday between Moscow and Washington. Under the proposed deal, Syria’s Assad will submit a complete list of all its chemical weapons. Breaking news reports say that the list was submitted Saturday evening. However, Syria will have until June 30, 2014 to DESTROY all of their chemical weapons, over nine months away.
In spite of the supposed “deal,” the United States State Department continues to wield the sword of military strikes. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said: “The United States would maintain the threat of military force independent of the United Nations process if Syria fails to meet its commitments.”
In other words, Obama and Kerry want to have it both ways---“their choice!”
But, even still, the evidence of chemical warfare by the Assad regime is sketchy, at best; in spite of what President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry say.
As early as Monday, Russia will give a 100-page report to the U.N. Security Council showing that Syrian rebels, NOT the Assad forces, were responsible for the chemical attack near Damascus on August 21 killing nearly 1,500 Syrians.
"We have plenty of reports on chemical weapons use, which indicate that the opposition regularly resorts to provocations in order to trigger strikes and intervention against Syria," Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
"There's a lot of data!" Lavrov promised that Russia would show the Security Council bonafide evidence that Syrian rebels, not the Assad forces, were responsible for a March 19 chemical attack in Aleppo where over 26 people Syrians were killed. The Russian Foreign Minister also promised there would be evidence that shows rebels used chemicals on the August. 21 attack in Ghouta, just east of Damascus.
"This data is presented in the report, which our experts put together in association with the use of chemical weapons in Aleppo in March this year. There's also plenty of data on the incidents that occurred in August in Ghouta, near Damascus," Lavrov said.
President Obama’s “Reason to go to war” has now been officially DE-BUNKED!
The United States military has now confirmed that Sarin gas and chemical weapons were used more by the Syrian rebels that Obama continues to arm. Our U.S. military has acknowledged that the chemical attack was NOT by the Assad forces.
This makes the potential Syrian conflict a total sham. Yet, Obama continues to “downplay” the new revelations!
It appears that the chemical weapons attack in Syria was a “self-inflicted” chemical attack (ON THEIR OWN PEOPLE) to place the worldwide spotlight on Syrian President Assad and his troops as being the culprits in this horrendous attack. The President of the United States is using incorrect information to go to war and attack Syria.
This means that President Obama was marching towards a military strike WITHOUT ANY CONSCIENCE! A year after Benghazi and we still don’t know what happened on American soil? And yet, this administration is so sure they know the truth on the chemical weapons in Syria?
The bottom line: The chemical attack was not perpetrated by the Assad forces! We need to let the entire United States Congress know that they must persuade the president not to rush to war, especially since the chemical attack was not initiated by President Assad! Please fax today.
The U.S. military confirmed that Sarin was confiscated earlier this year from members of the Jabhat al-Nusra Front, the most influential of the rebel Islamists fighting in Syria.
The recently revealed document says Sarin from al-Qaida in Iraq made its way into Turkey and that while some was seized, more could have been used in an attack last March on civilians and Syrian military soldiers in Aleppo.
The document, classified Secret/Noforn – “Not for foreign distribution” – came from the U.S. intelligence community’s National Ground Intelligence Center, or NGIC. Their Mission: The National Ground Intelligence Center produces and disseminates all-source integrated intelligence on foreign ground forces and related military technologies to ensure that U.S. forces have a decisive edge in current and future military operations.
However, contrary to the classified document that has just been revealed, the just-released United Nations report seemingly points to the Assad regime. After the United Nations report, Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador, (towing the Obama administration line) said a preliminary review of the report points toward forces loyal to al-Assad. "The regime possesses Sarin, and we have no evidence that the opposition possesses Sarin," Power said. Not true. "It defies logic" to think members of the opposition would have infiltrated a regime-controlled area to fire on opposition-controlled areas.
The U.N. report doesn’t say it was Assad. Britain, France, and NATO have said al-Assad's regime was behind the attack; but Russia, Syria's leading ally, and Russian U.N. Ambassador Vitaly Churkin maintained Moscow's stance that Syrian rebels might be to blame.
Such suggestions "cannot be simply shrugged off," Churkin said, and statements insisting that the opposition could not have launched the attack "are not as scientific and grounded in reality as the actual situation could be." He questioned why rebel forces didn't report major losses in the August 21 chemical attack, which the United States says may have killed more than 1,400, including hundreds of civilians.
World Net Daily reports: “The May 2013 seizure occurred when Turkish security forces discovered a two-kilogram cylinder with Sarin gas while searching homes of Syrian militants from the al-Qaida-linked Jabhat al-Nusra Front following their initial detention. The Sarin gas was found in the homes of suspected Syrian Islamic radicals detained in the southern provinces of Adana and Mersia.
“Some 12 suspected members of the al-Nusra Front were arrested. At the time, they were described by Turkish special anti-terror forces as the ‘most aggressive and successful arm’ of the Syrian rebels.”
The NGIC report written by the U.S. intelligence community bolsters an initial earlier United Nations’ investigation of the attack in Aleppo, which shows the evidence pointed to Syrian rebels.
This latest revelation is seen as strengthening Russia’s position that Assad did not use chemical weapons! Russia will be turning over to the United Nations a 100-page report that alleges use of chemical weapons by the Syrian rebels. The detailed information concluded the Syrian rebels – not the Syrian government – had used the nerve agent Sarin in the March chemical weapons attack in Aleppo.
Details of the contents of both the NGIC and Russian report are not yet available. They will soon be released. The report says that deadly Sarin poison gas was manufactured in a Sunni-controlled region of Iraq and then transported to Turkey for use by the Syrian opposition, whose ranks have swelled with members of al-Qaida and affiliated groups, including the Syrian rebels.

Recently freed from their al-Nusra captivity, two kidnapped individuals claim the rebels used chemical weapons even in the August 21st civilian attack. A Belgian researcher and an Italian former journalist, recently freed, say they overheard their captors talking about their involvement in a deadly chemical attack “last month,” which would have been the August 21 chemical weapons attack.
Belgian researcher Pierre Piccinin and Italian researcher Domenico Quirico, were released last week after five months of being kidnapped.
Piccinin asserted: “The government of Bashar al-Assad did not use Sarin gas or other types of gas in the outskirts of Damascus!” Piccinin said the two had overheard a Skype conversation in English among three people.
Domenico Quirico said: “The conversation was based on real facts.” He said one of the three people in the conversation claimed he was a Free Syrian Army general. Quirico alleges that “The militants said the rebels carried out the attack as a provocation to force the West to intervene militarily to oust the Assad regime.”
Ray McGovern, a former analyst for the Central Intelligence Agency, also believes the claim that the Syrian rebels committed the August 21st chemical weapons attack. He is just one of a number of veteran intelligence experts who signed a letter to President Obama saying that Damascus was not behind the August 21 chemical attack.
Other former U.S. intelligence analysts claim there is a “growing body of evidence” that reveals the incident was a pre-planned provocation by the Syrian opposition.
In their letter to President Obama, the analysts wrote about a meeting before August 21st where opposition military commanders ordered preparations for an “imminent escalation” due to a “war-changing development” that would be followed by the U.S.-led bombing of Syria. They said the growing body of evidence came mostly from sources affiliated with the Syrian opposition and its supporters. “Canisters containing chemical agents were brought into a suburb of Damascus, where they were then opened.”
Two weeks ago, President Obama addressed the nation on why he believes American military intervention may be necessary in Syria. Now the chemical weapon usage facts go against the Obama assertions! Now, more than ever, we strongly disagree with the President, and we oppose authorizing an attack by the United States against Syria.
Earlier this past week, the United Nations released an initial report saying that chemical weapons were used in the August 21st attack. Even if the chemical weapons were used by Assad, we simply cannot support a unilateral strike in the Middle East with no clear military objective or vital national security interest at stake. It is deplorable that more than 100,000 Syrians have been killed in a two-year-old civil war, but it does not warrant American intervention that could incite further chaos in a part of the world that is already a “tinderbox” on the brink.
Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that “Once we take action, we should be prepared for what comes next. Deeper involvement is hard to avoid.” The last thing this country needs is to get mired down in another country’s civil war where the lines are blurred between friend and foe. Let us not forget that the Syrian opposition contains factions of insurgents with known ties to al-Qaeda and are sworn enemies of the United States.
The Russian proposal to address Syria through diplomatic negotiations should be thoroughly explored. Whether or not this becomes a reality, the door has now been opened for the international community to express support for a diplomatic solution. By so doing, our country can avoid an ill-advised military strike.
Now that there is proof that the rebels used chemical weapons, a military strike would be unconscionable!!
Bodies of people activists say were killed by nerve gas in the Ghouta region are seen in the Duma neighborhood of Damascus, August 21, 2013.
Daily Sanity was one of the very first to report about Mother Superior Agnes Mariam el-Salib, Mother Superior of St. James Monastery in Qara, Syria, says she was submitting her findings to the United Nations! Her claim: Footage of chemical attack in Syria is a fraud!
Mother Superior Agnes claims: “I have carefully studied the footage. I maintain that the whole affair (of chemical weapons by the Assad regime) was a frame-up. It had been staged and prepared in advance with the goal of framing the Syrian government as the perpetrator.”
Too many Americans remain unemployed at a time when our debt and deficits continue to skyrocket. We have plenty of needs here at home that demand our attention. Attacking a Middle East country that poses no threat to the United States is not one of them!
Please tell Congress, no matter what, to vote against any American military strike against Syria!
