At least, right now.
I say this because of the daily drumbeat and placement in my Zionist War Daily day after day.
Then I factor in the writings of PNAC and a Clean Break.
And I'll never forget what Wes Clark said:
"General Wesley Clark, who commanded the North Atlantic Treaty Organization bombing campaign in the Kosovo war, recalls in his 2003 book Winning Modern Wars being told by a friend in the Pentagon in November 2001 that the list of states that Rumsfeld and deputy secretary of defense Paul Wolfowitz wanted to take down included Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Sudan and Somalia [and Lebanon]."
Notice he is kind of on the outs on the talking head circuit?
Probably knows the truth about 9/11, too.
"Death toll at 35 in Syrian crackdown" by Associated Press / June 6, 2011
BEIRUT — The death toll in a government security crackdown in two northern Syrian towns rose to 35 yesterday, human rights groups said. Exiled opposition figures said any dialogue now with President Bashar Assad’s regime would be a joke....

They are even calling it regime change in their own mouthpieces, 'er, newspapers!
"Protesters rampaging, Syria says; Government asserts gangs have killed 120 June 07, 2011|By Liam Stack, New York Times
CAIRO — The Syrian government said that armed gangs had slaughtered at least 120 police officers, security personnel, and civilians in a town near its border with Turkey yesterday, an account that, if true, suggests a violent shift in the uprising against Syria’s hard-line leadership.
Well, there have been scattered reports of armed protesters, etc, in the Amerikan media; however, the relatively low focus on the issue suggest something, doesn't it?
And remember, if a soft coup doesn't work the global controllers usually opt for a harder one.
Many opposition figures and local residents disputed official Syrian media reports of what was happening in the town, Jisr al-Shoughour....
Okay, what happened there was a reedited rewrite. Printed paper also had a Goodman by-line; however, after the Mysterious Case of the Syrian Blogger, I am really, really struggling to believe anything or any interpretation of anything in my agenda-pushing paper. Sometimes it's even a a double-back or triple-back play, but the unending lies -- not just about a fantasy creation of war propagandists, but the repeated bin laden bull and all the rest makes one believe the truth is the exact opposite of whatever that printed pos says on the desk beside me.
Of course, the media would never use outrageous lies to justify war, so.... !!!!
This was a day I didn't purchase a paper, so both you and I will be fresh to it, dear readers:
"Reports of mutiny in Syria suggest regime is losing grip" June 08, 2011|By Zeina Karam, Associated Press
Sigh. It's always the same storyline every time.
BEIRUT — A deadly mutiny of Syrian soldiers and loss of control over a tense northern town appeared to show extraordinary cracks in an autocratic regime that has long prided itself on its iron control.
Details about the events in Jisr al-Shughour remained murky yesterday....
Murky is AmeriKan media code for BS!
"the details of how the accident unfolded remain murky" ....
"the truth lies buried in the murky world of spies."
See: They Don't Want Your Blood Money
Why Am I No Longer Reading the Newspaper?
Seeing through the murk yet?
I think I'm done swimming in this murk.
The reports yesterday from residents and activists — and the television appearance of a soldier who says he switched sides after his hometown was bombarded — were the clearest sign yet that the weekly protests of thousands of Syrians are eroding President Bashar Assad’s grip....
And I'm just wondering why believe the newspaper? It's about pushing an agenda for certain interests and not about informing people. The scale of lying is so grandiose it almost defies description.
The resident said a number of soldiers ultimately defected, angered by the thuggish behavior of progovernment gunmen known as Shabiha, a fearsome name that some believe has roots in the Arabic word for ghost.
The resident said the gunmen were terrorizing residents and trying to stir up sectarian tensions.
Now I am smelling the stink of western intelligence agencies and their servants.
Jisr al-Shughour is predominantly Sunni but there are Alawite and Christian villages in the area. The Alawite minority rules over the Sunni majority in Syria....
In many ways, Syrians say, the Shabiha are more terrifying than the army and security forces, whose tactics include firing on protesters. Most Shabiha fighters belong to the minority Alawite sect, as do the Assad family and the ruling elite. This ensures the gunmen’s loyalty, built on fears they will be persecuted if the Sunni majority gains power.
A prominent activist outside Syria with connections to the area said many Syrians had taken to carrying weapons in response to the killings of protesters.
But they never use them against the government to even defend themselves? That seems to be the implication of the coverage.
But he said clashes over the past few days were mainly between supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood and Syrian security forces.
The Brotherhood, huh?
He said the weapons were smuggled from Turkey....
"Syrian troops converging on rebel enclave; Witnesses report convoys of tanks" by Bassem Mroue, Associated Press / June 9, 2011
BEIRUT — Syrian forces have lost control of large areas of the northern province, a progovernment newspaper reported, in a rare acknowledgment of cracks in the regime’s tight grip....
The number of Syrian refugees in Turkey has reached around 350. Ankara has said it is prepared to deal with a mass influx of Syrian refugees, though the frontier is relatively quiet for now....

"Fleeing Syrians tell of revolt, mutiny and mayhem" by Selcan Hacaoglu And Bassem Mroue
Associated Press / June 9, 2011
GUVECCI, Turkey—Syrian policemen turned their guns on each other, soldiers shed their uniforms rather than obey orders to fire on protesters, and three young men who tried to escape were beheaded by forces loyal to President Bashar Assad.
I suppose it could all be true, which in that case means coup proceeding as planned with accompanying propaganda.
As more than 2,400 Syrians streamed across the open Turkish borders on Thursday ahead of tanks and troops who surrounded their hometown, they brought with them the first accounts of a week of revolt, mutiny and mayhem in Jisr al-Shughour. The streets were deserted, leaving no resistance against a regime equipped for all-out battle.
Even safe in Turkish camps 12 miles (20 kilometers) away, the Syrians said they feared the authoritarian government's reach and refused to allow their full names to be used....
Is it sad that even if they did I'm not sure I would believe any witness now cited by my newspaper?

Another BG switcheroo, sigh.
And let's just for one second imagine -- not that you have reason to, but -- that the AmeriKan mouthpiece media was being 100% accurate, correct, and forthcoming about everything (keep reading when you stop laughing), all it proves is governments suck.
The name attached to it doesn't really matter; it is always an arm of the domestic elites that happen to control the country.
"Syrian forces storm across towns in north; Elite troops shell villages; 32 die, activists report" by Selcan Hacaoglu and Zeina Karam, Associated Press / June 11, 2011
YAYLADAGI, Turkey — Elite Syrian forces moved swiftly through the country’s restive north yesterday, raining tank shells on rebellious towns, torching farmland, and shooting protesters who tried to tear down a poster of President Bashar Assad, activists and refugees said.
You know, the same thing Israel and their Zionist militant "settlers" do to Palestinians.
Doesn't seem to raise as much fuss (or coverage) in the AmeriKan paper though.
At least 32 people were killed, activists said, and protests extended to every major city.
The leader of neighboring Turkey, angered by violence that has sent more than 4,000 Syrians streaming across the border, accused the Assad regime of “savagery.’’
Then quit sending in weapons.
And, of course, it is okay if Turkey uses the same strategy to slam Kurds.
Backed by helicopters and tanks, the troops responsible for most of yesterday’s violence were believed to be from an elite division commanded by Assad’s younger brother, Maher. The decision to mobilize his unit against the most serious threats to the 40-year Assad regime could be a sign of concern about the loyalty of regular conscripts.
Once again, we have a bad family that must be removed.
Syrians who escaped from the town of Jisr al-Shughour into Turkey said the army came after police turned their guns on each other and soldiers refused orders to fire on protesters last week....
As the coup turns.
In the town of Maaret al-Numan, thousands of protesters overwhelmed security officers and torched the courthouse and police station, and the army responded with tank shells, a Syrian opposition figure told Associated Press by phone, speaking on condition of anonymity.
Syria’s state-run television appeared to confirm at least part of the report....
Yeah, but you can't trust their press (or so I have read).
Syria’s government has a history of violent retaliation against dissent....
“They are burning down everything there,’’ said a young man who gave his name as Adil. “They said they even killed animals. The people have no weapons, they can’t defend themselves. The only thing they can do is escape.’’
As he spoke another Syrian got a call telling him his cousin had died in Latakia, where activists said security forces fired on protesters who tried to tear down a giant poster of Assad, killing seven. The young man whose phone rang slumped and wept....
I used to believe these accounts at face value, but I'm not so sure anymore.
If true, terrible, if not, worse.
