Photo Archive Is Said to Show Widespread Torture in Syria

By BEN HUBBARD and DAVID D. KIRKPATRICKJAN. 21, 2014

 

“If these photographs are authentic,”

“I feel like we have had at least one or two Srebrenica moments in Syria already,” said Robert Kagan, a scholar at the Brookings Institution who has pushed for American action. “The White House has completely hardened itself to whatever horrendous news might come out of Syria because the president doesn’t want to get involved.”   Robert Kagan;  (partial history of this establishment careerist )

US Feigns “Horror” Over Cooked-Up Report on Syrian War They Engineered   Land Destroyer
January 22, 2014

Update: Further details have emerged regarding the authors of the report. It was produced by British law firm Carter-Ruck on behalf of Qatar who funded it (CNN). Carter-Ruck had in the past defended Saudis suspected of funding Al Qaeda.

January 22, 2014 (LD) – As with every Western-backed conference assembled regarding Syria, dramtic fabrications revealed just ahead of proceedings are intended to give them and their predetermined outcomes both gravity and “urgency.” Upcoming “peace talks” to be held in Switzerland are no exception. A report cooked up by the unelected dictatorship in Qatar is based on an anonymous source, codename “Caesar,” and remains admittedly unverified.

Of course, spokesman for UN Human Rights Chief Navi Pillay would admit the report remains unverified (emphasis added):

Rupert Colville, spokesman for UN human rights chief Navi Pillay, told AFP: “This report is extremely alarming, and the alleged scale of the deaths in detention, if verified, is truly horrifying.

Codename Caesar, Codename Curveball

In retrospect, the corporate-media has no problem admitting the insidious lies that were told to justify the invasion and occupation of Iraq – the lead up to the war was another story. A verbatim repeat of these admitted lies are being directed at Syria amidst the West’s failure to overthrow the government with terrorist proxies.

  1. The devil still uses his same tactics that have always worked for him in the past, eh Muse? “Nothing new under the sun” as Ecclesiastes informs us. But that’s what is to be expected. But thankfully the Lord promises blessings to those who do not succumb to it.

    Hey I finally will be moving to Canada, in the next couple of weeks, I’m thrilled. Busy boxing stuff today.

    I don’t know if you’ve been keeping up with “Ma” (Alice)…she has decided to “give up on Christianity and the Bible” although, “not on God…yet”…but we know that the “god” that is not of the Bible is the devil, so what she does with him is of little consequence once you give up on Jesus…anyhow, it is a very sad situation, and now her children ask her questions that reveals the problems it is already causing them…without Jesus how will they withstand what is yet to come? On their own strength? I think not.

    Hope your new year is starting out well, have you been having any of this cold winter? Wow! We have been getting inundated with snow here in Michigan!

    Hold fast to what is true, in the strength of the Lord, not trusting your own strength or it will surely fail you. Love you,

    Susan

    1. Hello Susan, I haven’t kept up with blogging the last few months, but I have from time to time checked in and read yours and thought you were indeed very busy preparing for the move, so it is very good to get your news of your Canada move, and here’s hoping for great happiness and contentment in your new chapter of life! God bless you and your hubby richly in all things!

      It seems “Ma” could never reconcile God and the world by her personal sense of justice. Frankly I feel I never got across to her any satisfactory reasons for believing in the benevolent justice of our Heavenly Father and His plan of salvation in Jesus Christ alone. Simple Grace from belief in Him is what we all need. “Ma” always wanted to shoehorn God into her sensibilities and her idea of what is fair, which as you and I as believers know is the same original sin of Cain with his substitute offering instead of God’s instructed offering which Able his brother brought.

      It is always the same, “man’s way” or God’s Way (Jesus). “Ma” would say that that is harsh and unloving, but as the saying goes, “It is what it is.” God is the great I AM!

      I pray “Ma”(Alice) will come out of this phase of her life a believer in Jesus, for her sake and her children too, otherwise what else can a “Ma” leave and lay up for her posterity? All the questions of the world will never be answered any other way,”Peace that passes all understanding” comes from “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms”. Love you too, dear blogging friend, “Matermuse”

      1. “Sin of Cain” so true! Ou sense of justice inevitably reveals our own hypocrisy and this shuts out true love and forgivness because we think we can do it on our strength, instead of facing the fact that we cannot and that it is what God does, and has done, and will do, that matters, not what we think we are doing so well in all our prideful selfish vanity. I hope she comes to the truth too, she is still comparatively young, so perhaps the Lord is still preparing her. I so thought that if I just said the right words, but that is the same as the sin of witchcraft (thinking I have powers to change others) because God alone has that power. I’m still learning to rest in that fact. 🙂 Happy Valentines Day (pagan, I know, but I do love hearts and flowers)

      2. Me too, Susan! Aging does move us along in our pathway to our Lord’s ways of thinking, if we are His. I’m at another letting go and resting in God’s power and benevolences as my youngest children are now officially entering adulthood. “leaning on the everlasting arms” here too. 🙂 I love hearts and flowers too! Hope your 1st Canadian Spring is grand too, it must be exhilarating moving into a new chapter in a new home. 🙂
