Worldwide, people have gasped in horror regarding the events that been taking place regarding Syria….not only over the last 2 years in which perhaps 90,000 have died, but since the 21 August chemical weapons attacks on civilians near Damascus, leaving perhaps 1,000 dead (accounts are widely varying).
The humanitarian toll of warfare is achingly spotlighted, as it should be, but in addition…..warmongering, propaganda, illegal actions, violations of national and international laws, hypocrisy and confusion are being powerfully spotlighted as well.
Syria is a country mired in, and torn apart by, long-standing, violent, internal struggles, with numerous foreign players involved that also play both sides against each other for both strategy and profit….heartbreaking in itself.
What has put Syria all the more in the spotlight since last week’s chemical weapons attack is US insistence to launch a ‘quick’ military attack upon Syria and the government of Bashar al-Assad for having crossed Washington’s ‘red line’….that is, used chemicals weapons.
The push by the US and certain of its allies (Britain, France, Israel, Saudi Arabia, etc ) to attack has launched a tidal wave of opposition, leaks and conflicting stories regarding disturbing political and economic agendas. For many worldwide (in government and at grassroots levels), it has launched a deeper questioning as to such motives in the face of unclear and inconclusive evidence as to the Bashar regime’s use of chemical weapons in the first place, along with conflicting media worldwide about complicity in the attacks by foreign players for their various reasons.
Syria’s fate is intertwined and mired in complications, hypocrisies, agendas, and disturbing alliances of all kinds that involve the US, Israel, Iran, Hezbollah, Russia, China, the UK, Palestinian militant groups, al-Qa’ida, France, Saudi Arabia, Qatar…..and more…..making prediction or ‘truth’ impossible to determine, given the fight for strategic, military, religious, petroleum and financial leverage.
Although the decision to attack was decided in just 40-mins between US President Barack Obama and UK Prime Minister David Cameron, and the plan to launch a military strike as early as 30th August has been moving blindingly fast so as to avoid consulting at national government levels, and to avoid more opposition and more exposure, the US is thwarted by the inconclusive ‘evidence’ and the limited support both at home and internationally at the UN and amongst its allies (including the UK).
However, We are Witnessing a Powerful Sign of Global Awakening
Whether the US launches its currently-illegal attack or not, for the Syrian regime, things will remain extremely complicated, with a civilian population of 22-million the first to be caught in the ongoing violence that involves the numerous key, foreign players, and those players within its borders also. An article HERE gives a potential explanation of the dire nature of circumstances, as well as the various players.
However, what is arising because of, and beyond, the rhetoric and positions of any of the official stories and players, whoever they are, is the ‘player’ that is humanity at large itself.
- tired of endless war and Empire
- tired of the spin, double-speak and propaganda used to justify warfare
- tired of the use of their taxes and other resources in the service of death and destruction
- tired of the warmongering and lying itself
- aghast at the revelations of the same fingers in all the same pies
- aghast at bloated military budgets
- aghast at defense contractors and weapons profiteering
- heartbroken by the deaths of military personnel as well as millions of civilians (let alone the millions who have been displaced by these wars)
- tired of their killing civilians in order to protect and free them from being killed
- recognizing the value of whistleblowers willing to leak and to share the ‘inside story’ beyond the political rhetoric
A Tsunami of Inconsistency
…..Why the US, the UK, France, etc don’t seem to want a peaceful settlement. It can’t be about NOT supporting ruthless dictators because these have been supported all over the middle east, central and south America and elsewhere for decades by these and the other key players in this.
….Carla del Ponte, UN Investigator says the same HERE. Why would the Bashar Assad government give the OK to UN experts to investigate these attacks, determine the substance used and the method of delivery. if it had something to hide?
….There’s the question of the British Parliamentarian, George Galloway, saying Israel has been providing chemical arms to the Syrian rebel militants HERE
….Then there’s the leak published by Yahoo News in January 2013 about the email between Defence contractor Britam Defence’s Business Development Director, David Goulding, and the company’s founder, Philip Doughty, regarding a scheme ‘approved by Washington’ for Qatar to fund rebel forces to use chemical weapons and blame it on Assad’s regime HERE
…..How about that in supporting the Syrian, anti-government rebels, the US is thus aligned with al-Qa’ida, (the reason for the Iraq war, despite no relationship between Saddam Hussein and al-Qa’ida), and even though US drones are busy attacking al-Qa’ida in both Pakistan and Yemen HERE
….Did you know that Syria proposed a WMD-free zone way back in 2003? Check it out HERE
….And if it really was all about the humanitarian outcry, why did Saddam Hussein gas Iran with CIA help and full US knowledge HERE, in the days when the West loved Saddam Hussein? Where was the humanitarian outcry then?
….Or the US using white phosphorus in the seige of Fallujah as part of the Iraq War HERE
…How about the Syrian Rebels saying they are behind the chemical weapons attacks, whilst the US administration says it has proof that it was Assad? Syrian Rebels admission HERE
…Or this may be the hacked email Of US Intelligence Colonel showing the Pentagon’s involvement In Chemical Attack in Syria HERE
…..What about complicity in chemical weapons sales to the same countries you want to attack for using the weapons you sell them? The British Commons Committees on Arms Export Control are aware of numerous questionable deals between contractors and countries with atrocious human rights record…including sales by Britain to Syria HERE
….And here we go with the surge in the stockmarket when it comes to weapons HERE
…Or the worry about oil prices surging through the roof HERE
….What about Barack Obama saying to the Boston Globe in 2007 that the President “…does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation. HERE but violating the Constitution anyway as he did with Libya HERE
….And now news that Israel is pushing the Obama Administration to strike as a way of eliminating their main adversary, Iran, considering Obama ‘weak’ if he doesn’t HERE and both Israel and Saudi Arabia HERE regarding Obama’s ‘softness’ and Iran
…..And then we have Wikileaks exposing
- US/UK plans to use Cyprus to attack Syria HERE
- US plots to to destabilize Syria HERE
- Shell aggressively attempting to acquire oil investments in Syria HERE
….And veterans (previous and those on active duty) saying they don’t want to go to Syria HERE
….And here’s a rather ironic one: the BBC news used an Iraq 2003 photo to describe the chemical weapons massacre in Syria HERE
….And the dangers of unbridled American hegemony to global stability, not just because of pre-emptive warmongering, but also as it continues to teeter on the precipice of full economic collapse HERE
I believe we will never finally know…..it’s far too complicated and complex
….Some say it’s about diverting attention from Edward Snowden and the violation of the Constitution by the US Government and the NSA role in its surveillance activities upon US citizens and other countries (see previous BLOG). Perhaps to drown out citizen unrest and condemnation, in the US and abroad.
…..Some say it’s about radicalizing the Middle East further in order to destabilize Russia and China, who have interests in the area.
….Maybe it’s about Israel’s desire to be permanently protected from its neighbouring enemies…HERE and as above
….Others say it’s about the continuation of simultaneous theatre wars in the Middle East, with the text for resolution to Congress to use military force too broad HERE and perhaps as per the Project for the New American Century HERE and articulated by General Wesley Clark who spoke at the Commonwealth Club of California in San Francisco in 2007…mentioning the attack of 7 countries in 5 years, including Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran:
….Maybe it’s about retaining the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency in order to keep its economy propped up and US financial dominance assured. There are numerous global initiatives to unpeg from the US dollar, which would set off a chain reaction and perhaps ensure the US dollar as there remains very little holding it up. Perhaps crushing every country or state in the Middle East (Iran, Iraq) or Africa (Libya) who tries or has tried puts off the inevitable just a little bit longer.
….In the meantime, it’s ‘business as usual’ for some, and whilst Syria has its hands full with the potential of an impending military attack, others are busy taking advantage of the crisis and granting oil licenses already (to Iraq War architect, Dick Cheney, no less) in still-disputed Syrian/Israeli ?? territory HERE
This is all CRAZY, disturbing stuff………..
What is heartening is the exposure of these many inhumane and disturbing agendas….
As mentioned in the previous Blog HERE, people worldwide are asking: is this how they want their taxes spent? Is the ongoing destruction of countries and civilians what they signed up for in voting these leaders in? In Australia for instance, Prime Minster Rudd gave the OK to President Obama for an attack without a blink. Why?? For so many, this is a complete repeat of then Prime Minister, John Howard, his OK to President George Bush for the disastrous Iraqi War that has killed not only thousands of military personnel, but hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. Iraq has been completed destroyed, with no end in sight.
As I wrote in that BLOG……These circumstances invite us deeply into: .how much do I value freedom? What is peace? What is abundance for all? What is freedom to me? What is truth? What is spin? How much do I value freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom to decide what’s happening with my taxes? In whose name are these violations, compliance fees, wars and cover-ups occurring…and WHY? What is the extent of all these………AND HOW DO I FEEL…….and what do I want to create and experience? When it comes time to vote, who and what am I voting for? What am I consenting to? With which corporations and lobby groups are my political parties affiliated with, and what does this mean to me about the agendas that will unfold? What is my say in all this? What would I like to see happen in the years to come? What world do I want to live in?
And so, the grassroots is posting on Facebook, on Twitter, on their websites and others’ websites, in Blogs. They are mobilizing at demonstrations (this weekend). Others are whisteblowing to draw attention to the inconsistencies and horros so that from the grassroots up THINGS CAN CHANGE….as they always have done when the people organize and speak their truths. It has happened over and over again, throughout history….and now, we are more connected than ever.
..And it’s working. That’s why the push to launch an immediate strike is happening at breakneck speed……..There’s no place for this toxic stuff to hide anymore
Continuing to Powerfully Move Forward:
So, let’s keep:
- Continuing exposure and demands for accountability from ourselves first and foremost, and all leaders and players, and to wake more people up to act decisively and in community
- Demanding a free press and the right of whistleblowers to share what they know
- Focusing on the outcomes we do want as per the powerful Law of Attraction
- Engaging in Sacred Activism. Andrew Harvey says to pray, absolutely, but to pick 2 things that ‘keep you up at night’ and then take action.
- Utilizing practices like the ones mentioned in an email from the Global Coherence Initiative today:
- Let’s create a heart-field environment around the leaders and decision-makers for choosing the best outcome for all concerned…
- Now, let’s radiate coherent love and compassion to all who lost their lives and those who are suffering, mentally, emotionally and physically at this time…
- Now let’s radiate coherent love to people suffering from acts of hatred, prejudice and separation.
- Let’s close by radiating compassion to ourselves and to all who are following the news while dealing with the challenges of their own emotional discomforts regarding this situation. Let our heart’s prayer be for the highest, least suffering outcome for all.
- (It’s prudent to monitor our mental and emotional balance in our reactions to the news or outcomes. Absorption is seductive and can have negative effects on our health and well-being and our ability to generate effective care.)
Hold to the Vision for Universal Peace, Wellbeing and Abundance for all….and act in the way that is appropriate to you, in your life.
