The Syria White Helmets Exposed as US UK Agents Embedded with Al Nusra and ISIS

Not neutral, very sectarian, not Syrian and definitely get funding from the US govt.

The Syria White Helmets Exposed as US UK Agents Embedded with Al Nusra and ISIS

White Helmets: Follow the Money

The White Helmets were established in March 2013, in Istanbul, Turkey, and is headed by James Le Mesurier, a British “security” specialist and ‘ex’ British military intelligence officer with an impressive track record in some of the most dubious NATO intervention theatres including Bosnia and Kosovo, as well as Iraq, Lebanon, and Palestine. Le Mesurier is a product of Britain’s elite Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, and has also been placed in a series of high-profile pasts at the United Nations, European Union, and U.K. Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

The origins of The White Helmet’s initial $300k seed funding is a little hazy, reports are contradictory but subsequent information leads us to conclude that the UK, US and the ‘Syrian Opposition’ [or Syrian National Council, parallel government backed an funded by the US, UK and allies] are connected. Logistical support has been provided and given by Turkish elite natural disaster response team, AKUT.

A further $13 million was poured into the White Helmet coffers during 2013 and this is where it gets interesting. Early reports suggest that these “donations” came from the US, UK and SNC with the previously explored connections to George Soros in the US.

However, subsequent investigations reveal that USAID has been a major shareholder in the White Helmet organization.

The website for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) claims that “our work supports long-term and equitable economic growth and advances U.S. foreign policy objectives by supporting: economic growth, agriculture and trade; global health; and, democracy, conflict prevention and humanitarian assistance.”

In a USAID report update in July 2015 it is clearly stated that they have supplied over $ 16m in assistance to the White Helmets.

Sadly, this sort of news has been considered conspiracy for the longest time but anyone who have seen the so called Friends of Syria countries must have known that the west and its middle east allies don't have the best interest of Syrians and so do the presidential candidates who still call for regime change in Syria or the involvement of uber sectarian, uber Islamist Muslim countries in solving the Syrian war

The media is misleading the public on Syria

Coverage of the Syrian war will be remembered as one of the most shameful episodes in the history of the American press. Reporting about carnage in the ancient city of Aleppo is the latest reason why.

For three years, violent militants have run Aleppo. Their rule began with a wave of repression. They posted notices warning residents: “Don’t send your children to school. If you do, we will get the backpack and you will get the coffin.” Then they destroyed factories, hoping that unemployed workers would have no recourse other than to become fighters. They trucked looted machinery to Turkey and sold it.

This month, people in Aleppo have finally seen glimmers of hope. The Syrian army and its allies have been pushing militants out of the city. Last week they reclaimed the main power plant. Regular electricity may soon be restored. The militants’ hold on the city could be ending.

Militants, true to form, are wreaking havoc as they are pushed out of the city by Russian and Syrian Army forces. "Turkish-Saudi backed ‘moderate rebels’ showered the residential neighborhoods of Aleppo with unguided rockets and gas jars,” one Aleppo resident wrote on social media. The Beirut-based analyst Marwa Osma asked, “The Syrian Arab Army, which is led by President Bashar Assad, is the only force on the ground, along with their allies, who are fighting ISIS — so you want to weaken the only system that is fighting ISIS?”

This does not fit with Washington’s narrative. As a result, much of the American press is reporting the opposite of what is actually happening. Many news reports suggest that Aleppo has been a “liberated zone” for three years but is now being pulled back into misery.

Americans are being told that the virtuous course in Syria is to fight the Assad regime and its Russian and Iranian partners. We are supposed to hope that a righteous coalition of Americans, Turks, Saudis, Kurds, and the “moderate opposition” will win.

This is convoluted nonsense, but Americans cannot be blamed for believing it. We have almost no real information about the combatants, their goals, or their tactics. Much blame for this lies with our media.

Under intense financial pressure, most American newspapers, magazines, and broadcast networks have drastically reduced their corps of foreign correspondents. Much important news about the world now comes from reporters based in Washington. In that environment, access and credibility depend on acceptance of official paradigms. Reporters who cover Syria check with the Pentagon, the State Department, the White House, and think tank “experts.” After a spin on that soiled carousel, they feel they have covered all sides of the story. This form of stenography produces the pabulum that passes for news about Syria.

This is something I have known for years, I have been watching and reading posting from activits from both sides and yes both sides. One side wants Assad gone has ISIS and Al Nursa as their major fighting force and the Other has the Syrian army Hezbollah, Russia and Iranian militia fighting for them. This war on Syria was sold as every American war is sold and that is with a lie that Assad was a monster butchering his own people for no god
dammed reason.

I post these stories not necessarily to convince people that this administration has been wrong from day one for trying to use proxy armies to remove Assad. I post them so in a few years when the truth comes out about our involvement, you won't get to say that you did not know. We now have John Kerry and the UN calling for a ceasefire as the moderate beheaders are about to be defeated and some people are mocking Assad for saying you cannot have a ceasefire agreement with terrorists.

Madaya: What The Media isn't telling you

How To Argue For Gun Control

Gun control is a perpetual issue that comes up whenever there's a tragic shooting. But the arguments gun control advocates have used just don't conform to the methods of rationality. If you're a gun control advocate and want to convince a proper skeptic, here's what you need to do--and what you need to avoid doing.

My comment
I agree for the most part what he is saying especially the part about how the current gun control measures being promoted now will not prevent any mass shooting and then when more shooting occur in the future, more and more control measures will be enacted until access to gun by law abiding civilians is highly restricted. The gun control advocates will use one common sense control measure after another to inflict death by a thousand cuts to gun ownership in this country.

9/11 Experiments: The Great Thermate Debate

This is my response to the very popular one minute video of the so called debunking of the argument against molten steel posted on DU. Anyway here is the argument about molten steel and 911, not that steel is not malleable when heated. Nobody is making that argument.

Hoping he or any of his supporters sees this and tries debunking the main argument the opposition is making. This is more of a response to the video posted on DU than a CT video. So please don't alert.

Watch and Enjoy

Thomas Friedman asks if US should arm ISIS to fix problems created by policies he supported

When it comes to what the US should do in the Middle East, it's a matter of Friedman vs. Friedman
Luke Brinker

“Should we be arming ISIS?”

That’s the question New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman poses today, writing that while he loathes the terrorist group, also known as the Islamic State, it’s not as if the Shiite militias fighting ISIS in Iraq would govern much better:

O.K., so we learn to live with Iran on the edge of a bomb, but shouldn’t we at least bomb the Islamic State to smithereens and help destroy this head-chopping menace? Now I despise ISIS as much as anyone, but let me just toss out a different question: Should we be arming ISIS? Or let me ask that differently: Why are we, for the third time since 9/11, fighting a war on behalf of Iran?

In 2002, we destroyed Iran’s main Sunni foe in Afghanistan (the Taliban regime). In 2003, we destroyed Iran’s main Sunni foe in the Arab world (Saddam Hussein). But because we failed to erect a self-sustaining pluralistic order, which could have been a durable counterbalance to Iran, we created a vacuum in both Iraq and the wider Sunni Arab world
. That is why Tehran’s proxies now indirectly dominate four Arab capitals: Beirut, Damascus, Sana and Baghdad.

ISIS, with all its awfulness, emerged as the homegrown Sunni Arab response to this crushing defeat of Sunni Arabism — mixing old pro-Saddam Baathists with medieval Sunni religious fanatics with a collection of ideologues, misfits and adventure-seekers from around the Sunni Muslim world. Obviously, I abhor ISIS and don’t want to see it spread or take over Iraq. I simply raise this question rhetorically because no one else is: Why is it in our interest to destroy the last Sunni bulwark to a total Iranian takeover of Iraq? Because the Shiite militias now leading the fight against ISIS will rule better? Really?

Tough questions. But the Middle East, Friedman notes, is full of them: “Because past is prologue, and the past has carved so much scar tissue into that landscape that it’s hard to see anything healthy or beautiful growing out of it anytime soon.” Might as well consider a few rhetorical questions, if only to think about how to extricate ourselves from our problems in the region — problems, of course, caused in large part by policies Friedman promoted.

I am afraid that he is not the only thinking like this in the Military industrial congressional complex. Maybe this plan has already been implemented because face it, ISIS is actually helping with our ultimate goal of ridding Syria of Assad.

Oh well, who I am kidding, if there is any sanction being proposed it is more for the countries and groups fighting ISIS not the ones that enable terror.
