“Bringing Real Muscle to Bear Against Syria”
But recently revealed CIA documents drawn from the US National Archives portrays recent efforts to undermine and overthrow the Syrian government and the Syrian conflict’s relationship with neighboring Lebanon and its ally Iran as merely the most recent leg in a decades-long campaign to destabilize and overturn regional governments obstructing US interests.
A 1983 document signed by former CIA officer Graham Fuller titled, “Bringing Real Muscle to Bear Against Syria” (PDF), states (their emphasis):
Syria at present has a hammerlock on US interests both in Lebanon and in the Gulf — through closure of Iraq’s pipeline thereby threatening Iraqi internationalization of the [Iran-Iraq] war. The US should consider sharply escalating the pressures against Assad [Sr.] through covertly orchestrating simultaneous military threats against Syria from three border states hostile to Syria: Iraq, Israel and Turkey.
The report also states:
If Israel were to increase tensions against Syria simultaneously with an Iraqi initiative, the pressures on Assad would escalate rapidly. A Turkish move would psychologically press him further.
The document exposes both then and now, the amount of influence the US exerts across the Middle East and North Africa. It also undermines the perceived agency of states including Israel and NATO-member Turkey, revealing their subordination to US interests and that actions taken by these states are often done on behalf of Wall Street and Washington rather than on behalf of their own national interests.
Dog Poet Transmitting…….
As time passes, these become the days of Red Flags Rising. The mention of John Bolton as a possibility for Secretary of State is an unforgivable consideration. There are few people in ‘so called’ public service who are as vile as John Bolton. I won’t even begin to list the black marks against this psychopathic menace. Giuliani considered for anything beside Dogcatcher is insane. Maybe he should head the new 9/11 inquiry? He was at the center of the coverup and transparent lies that surrounded that whole ball of steaming shit. Ted Cruz as a possibility for Attorney General or (gasp!) Supreme Court Justice is truly twisted. There is a single bright spot where lobbyists are being thrown off the transition team, which means fewer Tribe members and the fact that Bannon is considered Anti-Semitic is a real plus, even though none of those offended people are Semitic.
Offspring of criminal Tribester, Charles Kushner, Jared Kushner is causing all kinds of trouble because Christie prosecuted his dear old dad. Apparently at that level of society, crime is not crime. Crime is only crime at a certain level of economic status. Below that level it is crime. Above that level it is clearly good business savvy. Jared is referred to as a DEVOUT Orthodox Jew. What is that? I think that means that politics and being a lobbyist are consecrated professions.
Why am I always on about this kind of thing? I am on about it because almost no one else is and that is due to FEAR and also the desire to have a secure place in the pecking order of the material world. As we know now, by observation and historical record, that particular form of ‘devout’ has to do with the worship of Mammon and that is why the moneychangers have been an enduring force in the enslavement of the human race. When one points out the obvious; what has been obvious for thousands of years, certain truths should become clear following even cursory inquiry.
TEHRAN (FNA)- A high-ranking Israeli Government official admitted for the first time that thousands of children were kidnapped in the 1950s from their Jewish mothers and fathers who had fled Yemen, before being given or sold to Jewish Ashkenazi families.
The official said that until today, those children do not know who their parents were, Asharq Al-Awsat reported.
“The deliberate operation of stealing hundreds of children truly happened,” Minister-without-portfolio Tzachi Hanegbi of the Likud party said.
However, the minister did not explain in details to which parties the kids were handed to, but only said that they “hope to study the documents and evidences to understand what happened and try to reach a solution”.
Last month, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the issue of the Yemeni children constitutes an “open wound for many families that do not know what happened to their children who disappeared, and are still looking for the truth.”
The Yemeni children were kidnapped from Israeli hospitals.
Hanegbi reached his conclusions after examining classified documents linked to the affair from the regime’s archives. Over the past several decades, there have been already 1.5 million documents gathered by three investigative committees tasked by the cabinet to probe the case.
Hanegbi said he would continue to examine additional documents after November and would then present recommendations to the Israeli cabinet to issue a decision that would declassify these documents.
