Here is why the UK is staying out of the attack on Syria-

Arti cle 27, paragraph 3 of the UN Charter makes abstention from voting manditory in case a member, whether permanent or elected, "is a party to the disputs." This is a strategic move ensuring that the UK can block any attempt by Russia and China to enforce UN action against any coalition attacking Syria. This is the type of sly sophistry typical of sleazy Western brinksmanship. The was a rigged vote!

Th e 'nervous people' are the wimps in England and France. They realised that the behemoth to their East was ready to finish off what Herr Hitler had failed to do.

And when the Washington emperor looked around and found no European canon fodder this time around, they realised they would be alone against the whole Russian Federation, the Peoples Republic of China, the Islamic Republic of Iran, et al, and are searching for face-saving ways to simply say 'sorry, we give in to superior people.'


An extremely uneducated response to a horrific humanitarian issue.

Britain sold nerve gas chemicals to Syria

'Furious politicians have demanded Prime Minister David Cameron explain why chemical export licences were granted to firms last January after the Syrian uprising began.
Britain allowed firms to sell chemicals to Syria capable of being used to make nerve gas, we can reveal today.
Export licences for potassium fluoride and sodium fluoride were granted months after the bloody civil war in the Middle East began ..
“The Government is hypocritical to talk about chemical weapons if it’s granting licences to companies to export to regimes such as Syria.

The socio-political landscape is multidimensional and the Middle East has historically been the "tenth dimension" contingency for West and East. Remember in school when you tried to manipulate the circumstances in a confrontation to favor minimal self demise. Well multiply that by 10 and take it to the tenth degree and divide it by the great war in order to establish a perceptual framework surrounding this geo-strategic boundary region. Ethno-religious conflict has been, is and will be utilized as a tactical mechanism for macro political design. Who stands to benefit from instability, regime change and re-stability

So it seems that they are not able to directly attack Syria...yet. Do not be fooled, you can bet your bottom dollar that the International Shylocks & their Khazar henchmen in NATO countries and elsewhere will sure be agitating for bombardment of Syria one way or another. I fear that a greater false flag is in the making.

Stopping the Syria war and avoiding more war should stabilize the planetary security situation sufficiently to remove war as an impediment to our safe and peaceful transition into becoming an extraterrestrial civilization ourselves. With considerably extended lifespans, young healthy bodies, and much higher IQs on a war, poverty, and pollution free planet. With the freedom to travel the universe on starships and integrate with other advanced human and non human extraterrestrial civilizations. To begin the importation of beneficial off planet technology to improve our lives and future.

Isn't it amazing how history repeats itself. Colin Powell tells us its anthrax and Saddam and now John Kerry says its sarin gas and Assad! Why don't they say that its really Israel and Netanyahu!

It really does appear that the Washington-Israeli-N ATO false flag operation is falling apart. There must be a lot of nervous people at the White House and the CIA.


Alex 01.09.2013 17:08
