Syria update


English law makers have voted against British involvement in the current Syrian crisis, whilst Prime Minister Rudd has out rightly said that Australia will not be involved. Given that is an election year, which would be a smart move. Right now it seems that only President Obama and a handful of his backers are choosing to push for action to be taken; calling into question his ability to lead his country.

Apparently the U.S has proof of the neurotoxin Sarin bring used in Syria, claiming they have tissue samples as evidence. Now how is it that they attained this evidence since the UN only left on the 30th of august from Syria and haven’t even published their reports?. As it happens America has been accused of bugging phone lines in EU rooms overseas and the UN headquarters in New York, evidence of this was published by Edward Snowden, the obvious culprits being the NSA.

Syrian Struggle


1500 people have been reported to have died in chemical attacks in the capital of Syria, Damascus. The attack that happened on the 21 of august is set to create further unrest in the Middle East if the allegations are found to be true. Syria have given the U.N permission for full access to the site 5 days after the attack, meanwhile U.S are stationing 5 Navy Destroyers in the eastern Mediterranean Sea but that is seeming to be the extent of it for now. Chuck Hagel Secretary of defence for the U.S

"President Obama has asked the Defence Department to prepare options for all contingencies. We have done that and we are prepared to exercise whatever option — if he decides to employ one of those options,”.

And in return a Syrian official warned the U.S

“We have strategic weapons and we’re capable of responding,” he said. “Normally the strategic weapons are aimed at Israel.”- The times of Israel

Alexei Pushkov, the head of the Russian lower house of parliament’s International Committee, made the remarks on Twitter on Sunday saying,

 “Inescapably, Obama is moving towards war in Syria just like Bush was [moving] towards war in Iraq,” Pushkov said, adding, “Just like in Iraq, this war will not be legitimate and Obama will become a Bush clone.” – press tv

Spokesman for Russia A.K. Lukashevich said:

"All this is reminiscent of events of 10 years ago in which, using false information that the Iraqis possessed weapons of mass destruction as a pretext and bypassing the United Nations, the United States launched a reckless enterprise with consequences that everyone is well aware of." – CNN

It is thought that the chemical that may have been used is Sarin which is an odourless, tasteless and clear gas that is a powerful neurotoxin more commonly referred to as nerve gas. Khaled al-Saleh a spokesman for SNC said that

“Medical teams in the affected area had administered 25,000 shots of atropine — a medication used to treat people exposed to the nerve gas Sarin — after the attack.-CNN

a member of the SNC has shot footage of a make shift medical centre treating people with no physical wounds. Children are among those affected. Footage shows people foaming at the mouth, eyes burning and many convulsing all typical neurotoxic symptoms.

The Syrian government blames Rebels for the attack and the Rebels blame the government. But it is obvious that there is no way the rebels could have attained chemical weapons with such limited resources. A few months ago the U.S contemplated sending the rebels small arms in order to fight the current regime.  The U.S government say that

 “Syria has crossed the line”

Meanwhile Iran has warned the U.S not to cross “Syria’s own line”

Monday 26th august 2013 U.N inspectors’ vehicles were fired upon by a sniper in the Syrian capital; No one was hurt in the attack. The U.N has a team investigating the claims of Chemical weapons.

U.S Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday said

 "The indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity. By any standard, it is inexcusable and — despite the excuses and equivocations that some have manufactured — it is undeniable," – ABC

Kerry is the highest ranking U.S official to make these comments.

The U.S seems to be chomping at the bit for another war, with Secretary of state John Kerry making America’s case for an attack on Syria. The president of the united states Barack Obama is said to constructing a time line for further action should he decided to give orders to the 5 U.S Navy destroyers who are ready to attack with in a couple of hours of receiving an order. The U.S would look to use Tomahawk cruise missiles to destroy command and control targets and chemical weapon launchers. (Tomahawk cruise missiles are land attack missiles are long-range, all-weather missiles.)

The U.S run the risk of starting an actually chemical war should they attack Syria, and just like what happened in Iraq their actions to do so, would create factions amongst the Syrian population that would be fight against the U.S. An attempt to over throw the Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad and his regime might allow for Islamic extremists to gain control, similar to what had happened in Egypt. The extremists are usually the most organised and since the SNC has been observed by the U.S as not organised enough to take control yet a viable action would be to weaken the government rather than topple it to allow time for the SNC to get their house in order.

Currently America has 58 billion dollars to run the country which will get them through 2-3 months. This all means they will need to borrow more money and a war would sink them further in dept.

Lets start at the beginning, it’s a very nice place to start.

This blog is for anyone who doesn’t know what the fuck is going on in the world. Through this blog you will hear many, many rants about the worlds reigning governments, and all the ways they fuck up and will continue to fuck up. Through this blog you will also understand why exactly the majority of the population is so stupid. I’d like to clearly state that I make no apologies for what I am going to post as nothing I say will be politically correct. I am officially declaring open season on ignorance. ANYONE AND EVERYONE is a target. I believe that as an inhabitant of this planet I owe all the people who have ever stood up against the violent and suppressive majority to voice the true views of sanity, to know their stories and what they gave up for the true greater good. 

so without further ado welcome to the world of hurt as we see it.
