Latest News Syria: Obama increasingly isolated


Washington, DC - With a week of intense lobbying behind him, U.S. President Barack Obama looks increasingly beleaguered – both at home and abroad – in his effort to rally support for a military strike against Syria to punish its government for its alleged Aug. 21 chemical-weapons attack outside Damascus.

At home, most political observers say Obama faces a particularly difficult task in bringing a majority of the Republican-led House of Representatives, which begins debating his proposed Authorisation for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) next week on return from its August recess, over to his side.

“The lack of consensus within G20 is confirmation of what we already knew, which is that there is limited support for military action in Syria within the international community." ( Charles Kupchan of the Council on Foreign Relations )

Congressional offices, even those whose bosses favour Obama’s position, are reporting overwhelming opposition in telephone calls and emails from their constituents, while public meetings held by lawmakers in their home districts have been dominated by anti-intervention forces from both the right and the left.

Latest News Syria: 'Anti-war protester' John Kerry


After returning to the United States, Kerry joined the Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW). Then numbering about 20,000, VVAW was considered by some (including the administration of President Richard Nixon) to be an effective, if controversial, component of the antiwar movement. According to Nixon Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird, "I didn’t approve of what he did, but I understood the protesters quite well", and he declined two requests from the Navy to court martial Reserve Lieutenant Kerry over his antiwar activity.

On April 22, 1971, Kerry became the first Vietnam veteran to testify before Congress about the war, when he appeared before a Senate committee hearing on proposals relating to ending the war.

He was still a member of the United States Navy Reserve, holding the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade. Wearing green fatigues and service ribbons, he spoke for nearly two hours with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in what has been named the Fulbright Hearings, after the Chairman of the proceedings, Senator J. W. Fulbright. Kerry began with a prepared speech, in which he presented the conclusions of the Winter Soldier Investigation, and then went on to address larger policy issues.

The day after this testimony, Kerry participated in a demonstration with thousands of other veterans in which he and other veterans threw their medals and ribbons over a fence erected at the front steps of the United States Capitol building to dramatize their opposition to the war. Jack Smith, a Marine, read a statement explaining why the veterans were returning their military awards to the government. For more than two hours, almost 1000 angry veterans tossed their medals, ribbons, hats, jackets, and military papers over the fence. Each veteran gave his or her name, hometown, branch of service and a statement. Kerry threw some of his decorations as well as some given to him by other veterans to throw. As Kerry threw his decorations over the fence, his statement was: "I'm not doing this for any violent reasons, but for peace and justice, and to try and make this country wake up once and for all. " The documentary film Sir! No Sir! includes archival footage of Kerry at the demonstration: he is one of several young men seen throwing things over the fence.




Latest News Syria: John Kerry wants to save American 'credibility'



As a reminder:

'The Bush administration then turned its attention to Iraq, and argued the need to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq had become urgent. Among the stated reasons were that Saddam's regime had tried to acquire nuclear material and had not properly accounted for biological and chemical material it was known to have previously possessed, and believed to still maintain. Both the possession of these weapons of mass destruction (WMD), and the failure to account for them, would violate the U.N. sanctions. The assertion about WMD was hotly advanced by the Bush administration from the beginning, but other major powers including China, France, Germany, and Russia remained unconvinced that Iraq was a threat and refused to allow passage of a UN Security Council resolution to authorize the use of force.  Iraq permitted UN weapon inspectors in November 2002, who were continuing their work to assess the WMD claim when the Bush administration decided to proceed with war without UN authorization and told the inspectors to leave the country.  The United States invaded Iraq on March 20, 2003, along with a "coalition of the willing" that consisted of additional troops from the United Kingdom, and to a lesser extent, from Australia and Poland. Within about three weeks, the invasion caused the collapse of both the Iraqi government and its armed forces, however, the U.S. and allied forces failed to find any weapon of mass destruction in Iraq. Traces of former materials and weapons labs were reported to have been located, but no "smoking guns". Nevertheless, on May 1, George W. Bush landed on the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, in a Lockheed S-3 Viking, where he gave a speech announcing the end of "major combat operations" in the Iraq war. Bush's approval rating in May was at 66%, according to a CNN-USA Today-Gallup poll.  However, Bush's high approval ratings did not last. First, while the war itself was popular in the U.S., the reconstruction and attempted "democratization" of Iraq lost some support as months passed and casualty figures increased, with no decrease in violence nor progress toward stability or reconstruction. Second, as investigators combed through the country, they failed to find the predicted WMD stockpiles, which led to debate over the rationale for the war.'



Credibility gap is a political term that came into wide use during the 1960s and 1970s. At the time, it was most frequently used to describe public skepticism about the Lyndon B. Johnson Vietnam War.
Today, it is used more generally to describe almost any "gap" between the reality of a situation and what politicians and government agencies say about it.

Latest News Syria: 'Anti-war protester' John Kerry

Warmonger Kerry spoke against war with John Lennon.jpg

Blogger Think Locally Act Globally saw Kerry speak at the protest along with approximately 35,000 others who rallied in the chilly rain in NYC back in 1972: 

"The march turned east at 42nd Street and ended in Bryant Park, where a stage for speakers was set up near the southwest corner. Speakers included John Kerry, representing the Vietnam Veterans Against The War (VVAW). It was the day he and Lennon were photographed together. None of us were expecting John and Yoko – they were a surprise. I was a huge Beatles fan and was thrilled beyond words. They spoke briefly and led the crowd singing “Give Peace A Chance.”

What a difference a few decades can make.

Now Kerry appears to be pushing military intervention in Syria based on the premise that Syria bombed Syria so the U.S. must also bomb Syria. Evidence that Assad’s regime actually even carried out the chemical weapons attack has never really been provided by the U.S. government, although Kerry has called it “undeniable”. Putin has called America out for not having any evidence at all. Photos which surfaced showing Kerry and his wife casually dining with Assad in years past have clouded the issue. Over 90% of Americans are against intervention in Syria at this point. Even three-time presidential adviser Pat Buchanan is openly calling this a false flag.

As a reminder:

Sen. John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential candidate on Friday charged that critics are trying to “swiftboat” President Obama with false and “ridiculous” claims and that Mitt Romney is a foreign policy rookie who embarrassed himself during a recent trip to London.

In a letter to Obama’s supporters, he railed on the charges Obama has been hit with, including those from the so-called “birthers.”

The attacks, he said, “remind me all too well of the notorious ‘Swift Boat’ attacks I faced in the 2004 campaign.” He was referencing devastating charges from fellow Vietnam War veterans questioning his service.

In the note, he also slapped Romney for being a foreign policy novice and potential presidential disaster.

Latest News Syria: Nobel 'Peace' Prize winner Obama


The 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to U.S. President Barack Obama for his “extraordinary efforts” to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Norwegian Nobel Committee announced the award on October 9, 2009, citing Obama’s promotion of nuclear nonproliferation and a “new climate” in international relations fostered by Obama, especially in reaching out to the Muslim world.

The Nobel Committee’s decision drew mixed reactions from US commentators and editorial writers across the political spectrum, as well as from the rest of the world.

Obama accepted the prize in Oslo on December 10, 2009. In a 36-minute speech, he discussed the tensions between war and peace and the idea of a “just war”.

President Barack Obama flew to Sweden on Wednesday for a diplomatic meeting ahead of a two-day G20 summit in St. Petersburg, Russia.

One Swedish reporter cornered Obama on the contradictions contained in the fact that a Nobel Peace Prize winner is planning to launch his second war against a sovereign nation.

“I was wondering,” the reporter began, “could you describe the dilemma to being a Nobel Peace Prize winner and getting ready to attack Syria?”

War on Syria: 'Anti-War Protester' John Kerry



" In the 2004 presidential campaign, [VERNON] JORDAN led debate preparation and negotiation efforts on behalf of John Kerry, the Democratic nominee for President. That year he was elected president of the Economic Club of Washington." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vernon_Jordan_Jr.
" LYNN [the wife of EVELYN DE ROTHSCHILD] is the CEO of ELR Holdings and became a director of The Economist in 2002. She launched FirstMark Communications in the late 1990s and got EVELYN DE ROTHSCHILD, Henry Kissinger, VERNON JORDAN (senior managing director LAZARD; close Clinton friend and advisor; friend of EVELYN DE ROTHSCHILD; permanent Bilderberg visitor), Michael J. Price (former managing director LAZARD), Nathan Myhrvold (former CEO Microsoft; PPI Task Force member), and others as its initial directors."
" In late August 2004, Clinton and his wife Hillary, EVELYN DE ROTHSCHILD, LYNN DE ROTHSCHILD, VERNON JORDAN, and Prince Andrew were all hanging out at the Vineyard at their very own "Anyone but Bush" party. Rothschild and Jordan were jointly celebrating their birthdays that day. Together with his wife he attended the 32nd Williamsburg Conference in Delhi in 2004. " https://wikispooks.com/ISGP/organisations/introduction/PEHI_Evelyn_de_Rothschild_bio.htm
" British imperialist Cecil Rhodes, whose will expresses his intention for "the ultimate recovery of the United States of America as an integral part of the British Empire," would be highly satisfied that Kerry's first stop is Britain. British Ambassador to the U.S. Sir Peter Westmacott told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell today, "We are very pleased that [Kerry] is beginning this first tour in London, and that feels to us kind of right... and there's an awful lot of things for [Kerry and British PM David Cameron] to talk about... [F]ront and center on the agenda are bound to be what are we going to do about Syria " http://larouchepac.com/node/25613
" " David Cameron also stayed on the Rothschild estate during a summer holiday, two years ago. "
" What we do know is that in the space of a week Peter Mandelson and George Osborne and his family arrived on Corfu at the invitation - or at least with the blessing - of their then mutual friend, the financier Nat Rothschild............After all, two of the world's most powerful figures, the controversial Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska and the media mogul Rupert Murdoch, would also be within the Rothschild orbit that week. "
" The festivities began on the night of August 15, when Lord [JACOB] ROTHSCHILD, Nat's father, threw a 50th birthday party for his close friend Maya Schoenburg, the former wife of Mercedes-Benz heir Mick Flick.
Among the 40 diners at the bash were Tory Shadow Chancellor Osborne and his writer wife, Frances. No surprise there. Osborne and Nat Rothschild have known each other since childhood, and were members of the notorious Bullingdon drinking club while at Oxford together. "
