Western Elite Wage Info-War to Justify Syria Invasion?

Escalating tensions surrounding Syria are preparation for aggression. Writer and political scientist Igor Panarin believes that part of the British-American and Israeli elite is waging an information war to justify a military invasion of Syria.

In the article below, Panarin explains his view.

The mass protests that broke out in a number of Arab countries in 2011 were orchestrated from London, which essentially became their coordination center. The BBC and Qatar’s supposedly-independent Al-Jazeera channel (which in reality is ideologically controlled by a part of the British-American elite) led the way in providing media support.

For instance, the BBC reports that an independent commission of UN human rights experts accused the Syrian authorities of committing crimes against humanity as they dispersed anti-government protests. But French journalist Thierry Meyssan found out that the commission clearly fabricated the evidence they used in their investigation. For instance, according to the UN commission, Syrian security forces killed over 3,500 peaceful protesters. But the figure is hardly credible, as it comes from a mysterious London-based human rights organization called Observatoire Syrien des Droits de l’Homme (OSDH) [Syrian Observatory of Human Rights – RT]. According to Meyssan, many of the 3,500 protesters supposedly killed by Syrian security forces are in fact alive and well. Their names, distributed by the OSDH, were in fact taken from the phonebook. Meyssan says an information war is being waged against Syria and that at least some of the footage distributed by Al-Jazeera is produced in special studios that reproduce the main squares of Syria’s major cities. The same trick was used with Libya, when the footage of street fighting in Tripoli on August 23, 2011, was actually shot in Qatari studios, which opened a new chapter in information warfare.

The Syrian government recently banned iPhones to stop the propagation of lies among protesters. Some of the protesters still use banned smartphones to disseminate false reports, announce protest rallies and distribute anti-government materials using the “Syria Alone” application. The application, launched on November 18, was developed by British and US experts specifically to help the opposition coordinate their protests. Information warfare specialists use Syria Alone to publish anti-government materials and criticize the work of law enforcers. The Syrian authorities believe that by banning the iPhone they can stop misinformation from spreading. In addition to the US and the EU, the anti-Syrian coalition now includes the Arab League, which recently expelled Damascus and then introduced tough sanctions against Syria.

A part of the British-American elite is playing the leading role in media campaign against Syria, which is no surprise after their success in Libya, where their media attacks preceded NATO’s direct military intervention. A similar strategy is now used against Syria.  For instance, the decision to suspend Syria’s membership in the Arab League leads to further international isolation, which is clearly what the West wants to achieve. The Arab League first took a similar decision regarding Libya in late February, and then it recognized the NATO-backed Transitional National Council as the only legitimate body representing the people of Libya, in August. In other words, what we see today is the same scenario being reproduced in Syria, with the Western multinational elite launching a media attack against that country.

The Syrian army and police are facing a strong opponent, including foreign mercenaries. According to some sources, there are around 10,000 of them, mainly from Arab countries, Pakistan and Pashtuns from Afghanistan.

Russia’s approach to the conflict in Syria radically differs from that of the United States and its allies. The Kremlin vetoed the UN Security Council resolution, which would have made it possible to repeat the Libyan scenario in Syria. Moscow is doing its best to avoid the escalation of the conflict, to prevent military intervention (among other things, by sending an aircraft carrier to the Mediterranean) and to establish a constructive peaceful dialogue.

    Under the new U.S. President Barack Obama in the Crimea will be implemented scenario of armed conflict. “It is the American scenario, and under Obama the probability is much higher than under McCain,” – said at a roundtable in Kiev, Russian political scientist Andrei Okara, said “New Region”.

    Expert explains: “It became clear when it was announced that what people will represent the Obama team. These are people whose professional registration – Wall Street. These people are engaged in a technology called” technologies of controlled chaos. ”

    According to Okara, after Georgia area “controlled chaos” in the first place, was to be the Ukraine, namely – Crimea. “This is the point of a fire, including global conflicts that escalate into a world war, which, unfortunately, is one of the scenarios, the implementation of which at the moment from the real” – says the analyst.

    His colleague from the Ukrainian Institute of Russia Andrey Blinov agree that Russia is not interested in such a conflict. “When people talk about the war in the Crimea or in the hamlet St. Michael, I believe that this scenario is marginal. A question more active economic participation of Russian capital is very likely. But it depends on when the crisis is over. If in 2010, while Russia will be much weaker, “- said the expert.

    U.S. ambitions toward Crimea confirmed and signed recently the Ukrainian-American Charter on Strategic Partnership. The Charter provides for the unconditional recognition of the sovereignty of Ukraine and its integration into NATO, increased U.S. presence in the Crimea and other forms of cooperation. U.S. Ambassador William Taylor in Kiev, however, reassured: “The Charter does not oblige any one of the two parties to assist military means.” And he added, if the boundaries are violated, “we will meet and discuss our next steps.”

    In the second section of the paper devoted to defense and security, said the interest of both countries to “a strong, independent, democratic Ukraine”, whose integration into European structures “is a mutual priority.” This section reiterates that Ukraine will join NATO. In the meantime, “recognizing the global threat to stability in the world, to prevent them Ukraine and the United States will strengthen their cooperation in defense and security issues,” – said the Ambassador. In addition, Taylor mentioned and concrete steps to improve the level of training and military supplies for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

    The fifth section is devoted to the expansion of human contacts and cooperation in the field of culture: Ukraine, as follows from the text (as submitted by Taylor), “welcomes the intention of the United States to increase its diplomatic presence in the Crimea.” Format presence on the peninsula is still under discussion, “but it may be a structure with certain consular functions.”

    The document also refers to the support of Kiev against Moscow on withdrawal of Russian Black Sea Fleet from Crimea.

    The fact that Crimea is the most promising ground for destabilization beneficial both Americans and official Kyiv, observers say not the first month. Periodically pop up in the media, various scenarios by which the Ukrainian “Democrats” try to blow this “powder keg” redirecting claims to Russia. Proclivities pro-Russian activists Peninsula (like attempts to regain the Crimea to Russia through the court ) at the same time severely punished, but to complete victory over SBU “dissidents”, judging by the numerous symptoms, far away.

    Provocations on the “Crimean direction” really can not be avoided, we are convinced, in turn, Ukrainian Communists. U.S. prepares to throw to the east (aiming at this, of course, in Russia), but first they need to break the pro-Russian Crimea, ex-speaker of the Crimean parliament, Verkhovna Rada deputy Leonid Grach. Scheduled for next year open a representative office in Simferopol U.S. – the same series.

    The fact that Ukraine is in range of the attention of the new U.S. president, analysts have stated previously. Obama will counterbalance Russia Ukraine, said political analyst Sergei Taran: “The first time the Ukrainians may be neglected by the United States, as Obama will be busy with internal problems the United States. But in the long term efforts of the U.S. Obama will resume his authority in Europe, and in the long term, the new U.S. administration will pay particular attention to Ukraine, which could be a counterbalance to Russia in the region, and in the future – even counterbalance the old Europe example of modern Poland. ”

    Ukraine will remain for the United States deterrent to Russia, agrees Ukrainian political analyst Andrei Yermolaev. According to him, Ukraine for American policy has been and remains instrumental object that is used in a rather cynical strategies.

    Most “visionary” already hard rehearsing for the upcoming bout Crimea : from the opera – held recently in Kiev command post exercise on “Actions volunteer units on the Crimean theater of operations after the Russian military aggression.” Organizers merrymaking (National Salvation Committee, which includes the party “Brotherhood” and “New Force” and association “Northern Brotherhood”) argue that the conflict between Ukraine and Russia, which will be held no later than 2011, the entire burden of resistance will be on voluntary organizations. Scenario Campaign General Staff of the Armed Forces has already been developed, sure “roleplayers”.

    Putin Sends Feared Shock Troops Division Into Ukraine, Warns Obama Is “Unstable”

    By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

    A grave Ministry of Defense (MoD) “urgent action” report circulating in the Kremlin today states that President Putin has ordered “additional elements” of the much feared 76th Russian Shock Troops Division into Ukraine after this mornings sudden attack upon Crimea’s Interior Ministry by Western-backed forces which left, at least, 10 of the enemy forces dead in their failed mission and has asked parliament for permission to use Russian military forces in Crimea.

    Even more grimly, this report continues, Putin, in conversations with his top military leaders, is warning that President Obama appears to be “unstable” and may push Russia into a nuclear war many experts have begun warning about.

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) in commenting on this deadly attack further stated: “Unidentified armed men sent from Kiev attempted to seize the building of the Interior Ministry of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea in the early hours of March 1. The treacherous provocation resulted in casualties. Self-defense units’ resolute actions helped avert the attempt to seize the Interior Ministry building. These events confirm the desire of well-known political circles in Kiev to destabilize the situation on the peninsula.”

    Putin’s concerns relating to Obama’s mental stability, this report says, are related to the American leaders “stern warning” to Russia yesterday about interfering in Ukraine, which was followed hours later by his levity in responding to a heckler who accused him having a plan for a “nuclear war with Russia” to which Obama quipped that since it was after 5 p.m. on Friday, he was using his executive authorities to declare it “officially happy hour with the Democratic Party” and that the heckler “thought happy hour started earlier.”

    As we had previously reported, last week Putin had “stunned” Obama in warning him that Russia was “fully prepared” to defend Ukraine against the pro- fascist coup backed by Western forces.

    Further to note are that Putin’s action against the Neo-Nazi minority currently controlling Ukraine was that it was in direct response to the reign of terror these fascist forces have unleashed, and which caused Russian military forces to protect the Crimea and warn NATO of Moscow’s intention to protect the Russian citizens of Crimea, even if it means all-out war.

    With the Obama regime failing to heed these warnings, however, and, again, as we had previously reported on, Putin was left with no choice but to order the 76th Division Shock Troops into Crimea, and other strategic places within Ukraine, in order to assure the safety of its citizens.

    Moving to protect Crimea’s government ministries and airports against further Western aggression, as we had previously noted, combat elements of the 810th Naval Infantry Brigade have, also, begun taking up defensive positions throughout the region, separately confirmed by Telegraph reporter Roland Oliphant who in interviewing one of these soldiers earlier today quoted him as saying, “We’re just here to help.”

    The call for Russian help to protect the Crimea, it must be noted, came from their Prime Minister, Sergey Aksyonov, who has taken control of all national security forces in the region, including police, emergency services and the Interior Ministry, and whose plea to Moscow the Kremlin stated “would not be ignored.”

    The State Duma Council further urged Putin to take measures to stabilize the situation in the Ukrainian region of Crimea and use “all possibilities” to protect the local population, its speaker said.

    “The Council of the State Duma, in the name of the MPs of the State Duma, has asked the president to take measures to stabilize the situation in Crimea and use all available possibilities to protect the population of Crimea from lawlessness and violence,” speaker Sergei Naryshkin said in a statement read on Russian state television.

    Within hours of Prime Minister Aksyonov and the Duma’s appeal for help, this MoD report continues, Russia and Crimea reached an agreement on a joint guard of the Russian Black Sea Fleet and both Russian and Crimean forces are continuing to combine military strategies to protect the region.

    With acting Ukraine President Oleksandr Turchynov having closed the airspace over Crimea earlier today over what he calls an invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces, and calling for the US and UK to “rescue” his nation, this report continues, Ukrainian Defence Minister Igor Tenyukh has told his government’s first cabinet session that Russia’s armed forces had sent in 30 armored personnel carriers and 6,000 additional troops.

    What Ukraine is calling an “armed invasion,” however, this report says, is, instead, a mission to “protect Black Sea Fleet’s positions which is happening in full accordance with the foundation Russian-Ukrainian agreement on the Black Sea Fleet.”

    This MoD report further notes that the Russian warships Minsk and the Kaliningrad are “rapidly returning” to their Black Sea port in Crimea along with their estimated 2,000 “Alpha Group” commandos who have been engaged in the Syrian conflict against Western-backed Al Qaeda forces seeking to, likewise, topple that nations government.

    Critical to note about this “escalating crisis,” this report states, are that the American people are not being allowed to know that the Obama regime is backing the Neo-Nazi government in Ukraine and has, in fact, paid over $5 billion of the American taxpayers dollars to engineer this fascist coup, and which, as we had previously reported on, US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland made no secret of when Russian intelligence tapes of her private conversations planning Ukraine’s government overthrow were made public.
