U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley Threatens World War III.

By Jerry Alatalo

as it only “coincidence” that U.S. President Donald Trump’s spokesman Sean Spicer announced the administration’s discovery of a potential chemical attack by Syria’s Bashar Al Assad, just hours after Seymour Hersh’s devastating-to-Trump article (now internet viral) was published in Germany? Those with any significant knowledge of the Syrian conflict and confidence in their own intuition will answer that question:

“No, it was not by coincidence.”

There is an aspect to this unfortunate, disheartening development far more important than understanding Trump’s chillingly threatening, war propaganda announcement was meant to defeat to the greatest extent possible the impact of Mr. Hersh’s explosive article. The Trump administration’s war threat to Syria, Russia and Iran is clearly a dangerous sign of the extreme risk Trump and his administration’s officials represent to international peace and security.

Some may underestimate the critical state of world affairs this development has created, brush it off as just something that will blow over, and that anyone making a big issue of it is engaging in either hyperbole or exaggeration, or making unwarranted assertions. However, when the United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley threatens Syria, Russia and Iran with military force – three sovereign nations possessing tremendous joint military power, in particular nuclear weapons –  the profoundly dangerous nature of the current situation becomes clear as day.

Mr. Hersh’s article points out that Donald Trump was aware his intelligence and military experts did not have irrefutable proof/evidence that Syrian military officers on orders of Bashar Al Assad intentionally dropped a chemical bomb on its own people in early April. Without evidence, why did Donald Trump order 59 Tomahawk missiles launched into the sovereign nation of Syria – and why did he, Ms. Haley and so many others assert they “held the evidence” without eventually making it public?

Ms. Haley told reporters shortly after the early April chemical event that the administration possessed “the evidence”, that it was classified, and that it was a matter of days before it would become declassified then available for all to see. The “evidence” after nearly three months has never been declassified nor published – according to Mr. Hersh’s article because it never existed in the first place. Perhaps it is hyperbole, or otherwise completely legitimate, to assert Donald Trump, Nikki Haley and the many others owe an honest, thorough explanation to the people of America, Syria, Russia and the world on why they made extremely serious, dangerous accusations without real evidence.

What some analysts are saying now is that the United States coalition in Syria is attempting to “annex” or partition Syria, revealing another aspect to the situation, in particular as it relates to deterioration of international relations after Crimea’s people held a referendum, decided to leave Ukraine, and joined the Russian Federation in 2014. Crimea’s joining the Russian Federation has resulted in economic sanctions hurting both the Russian and European Union economies over the period since, and recently renewed in the United States Senate by an overwhelming majority of votes.

It is yet to become seen emergent comparisons between Ukraine/Crimea and Syria among the world’s leaders, but if the United States is leading a Crimea-like annexation of part(s) of Syria the accusations of double standards are certain to follow.

Unfortunately international law has essentially been “thrown out the window” during the long Syrian warring ordeal, thus people wishing for peace in that suffering nation of fellow brothers and sisters in the human family can only pray – and act wisely to prevent a wider, immeasurably more destructive war.

From Vietnam To Syria: The Big Lie Has Killed Millions.

By Jerry Alatalo

United States President Lyndon Johnson lied through his teeth to the world on August 4, 1964. Johnson was not only criminally responsible for initiating the Vietnam War based on a “false flag” deception – the Gulf of Tonkin incident – but was a major force behind the murder of President John F. Kennedy.

Estimates of Vietnamese deaths range from 2-4 million, and 59,000 Americans perished in the many years of horrific war after Johnson’s Big Lie.

Among Johnson’s other crimes related to “false flag” operations designed for instigating war, he colluded with Israeli officials in the U.S.S. Liberty attack (Summer 1967), where Israeli forces received orders to destroy the vessel and kill all U.S. personnel on board. It was the conspirators’ plan that Egypt would be falsely blamed, necessitating U.S. military involvement, and would have worked but for a Liberty naval officer’s ability to configure a crude communications setup (the Israeli attack knocked out all communications equipment) allowing transmission of a message for help, defeating the conspiracy.

(One of the survivors of the U.S.S. Liberty attack of 1967 commented here on a past post dedicated to the historic scandal that “…Johnson wanted us all dead.”)

Johnson – had the U.S.-Israeli false flag operation been successful and all U.S. personnel been killed – had prepared plans to drop a nuclear weapon on Egypt’s largest city Cairo, making it the 3rd use of nuclear weapons on a population in world history after Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

These are just a few examples of Lyndon Johnson’s profoundly criminal, heinous actions, others of which may never see the light of day, and are important to remember when attempting to measure the level of danger humanity faces today.

ne could describe the United Nations Security Council as a form of world courtroom in the sense that members sitting around the table are effectively presenting their views in a lawyer-like fashion. Perhaps, like in a typical court setting, United Nations Security Council meetings need an international panel of respected, retired men and women judges to preside over proceedings.

Given that all members of the Security Council are certainly aware of history and horrendously consequential false flags like the Gulf of Tonkin, Colin Powell’s telling of the Big Lie in 2003, etc., the lack of any time devoted to members wishing to ask questions of other members is detrimental to any efforts at arriving at the truth about the most serious situations on Earth.

What is noticeable, and worrying, about the statements by U.N. representatives of U.S., U.K. and France in meetings after the Idlib chemical attack of April 4 is their total silence on the possibility that terrorists may have carried out the attack in a false flag operation, despite their knowledge of history. Their silence on that possibility goes as far as not even acknowledging such historically verified events have occurred in the past, while at the same time not responding specifically to those making the legitimate assertions.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley was second-to-last to deliver a statement, followed by Syria’s Ambassador Bashar al Jaafari speaking to close the meeting. At the end of her statement, Ms. Haley directed her words to Mr. al Jaafari. Remember that in previous meetings convened to discuss the Idlib chemical attack, Ms. Haley warned the United States was willing, prepared and able to act alone, and that – after Donald Trump ordered the launch of Tomahawk missiles into Syrian territory – she again warned the U.S. was willing to do more.

In that light, people should consider the seriousness of the current state of world affairs. The greatest chance for preventing what could become a catastrophic military escalation in Syria lies in an international demand for Donald Trump to provide any and all evidence he says proves Syrian forces carried out the Idlib chemical weapon attack. Ms. Haley said:

“To Assad and the Syrian government – you have no friends in the world after your horrific actions. The United States is watching your actions very carefully. The days of your arrogance and disregard of humanity are over. Your excuses will no longer be heard. I suggest you look at this vote very carefully, and heed its warning.”

It is impossible to conclude otherwise but that Ms. Haley, in this April 2017 meeting of the United Nations Security Council, issued a direct, unambiguous, explicit threat of war against Syria.

The Syrian representative’s statement following being threatened with war, unfortunately, will most likely never be seen or discussed on any Western corporate media platform or inside governmental bodies. If that weren’t unfortunate enough, the important detailed relevant facts he presented will never become responded to by the U.N. representatives from America, the United Kingdom, and France. The question becomes: “If the truth cannot be sought and discussed at the United Nations Security Council, where on Earth can it be?”

The resolution authored by U.N. officials of the P-5 (Permanent Security Council states, holding veto power) U.S., U.K. and France contained language they knew would become vetoed by the P-5 Russian Federation (P-5 China abstained), because it would legitimize the attack by the U.S. of Syrian territory, violating the United Nations Charter and international law.

Either U.S. President Donald Trump responds to increasing demands from around the Earth to make public any and all of his evidence – or humanity is witnessing another massively destructive, criminal, and morally reprehensible Big Lie.

Time for humanity to act is of the essence.

President Donald Trump: Show The World Your Evidence.

By Jerry Alatalo

“Power must never be trusted without a check.” (Letter to Jefferson, February 2, 1816)

– JOHN ADAMS (1735-1826) Second President of the United States

hile plans at the United Nations for investigating the chemical atrocity in Idlib province Syria were in the infancy stage and not yet begun, the American president directed the U.S. military to fire 59 Tomahawk missiles into Syria from warships in the Mediterranean Sea. Mr. Trump told Americans and the world it was to deter and punish the Syrian military for carrying out the chemical attack.

Among the many questions which have become raised after Donald Trump ordered a military attack on a Syrian airbase inside that country, the one that is receiving greatest attention and focus is: “Where is Donald Trump’s evidence, and why isn’t he providing it?”

It’s a simple question, really. In the context of fundamental legal theory when one of the sides in a legal argument wishes to present their case to the jury, it is common knowledge that party needs to bring evidence, or proof to back their claims and assertions. However, the response to it by U.S. President Donald Trump is much more complex, and for decades Middle East scholars, researchers, writers and people of the region have dealt with and experienced associated consequences of U.S. geopolitical actions.

As of yet, Donald Trump has not made his case – provided evidence, or proof – justifying attacking Syria to Americans and people around the Earth. His choice as Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has not provided evidence either in the last two United Nations Security Council meetings, convened to focus on the Idlib chemical atrocity and U.S. missile response.

Here is what Donald Trump said shortly after ordering the missile attacks on Syria:

“My fellow Americans… Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad launched a horrible chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians using deadly nerve agent. Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women and children. It was a slow and brutal death for many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this barbaric attack.”

“No child of God should ever suffer such horror. Tonight I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched. It is in this vital national security interests of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons.”

“There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the chemical weapons convention, and ignored the urging of the U.N. Security Council. Years of previous attempts at changing Assad’s behavior have all failed and failed very dramatically. As a result, the refugee crisis continues to deepen and the region continues to destabilize, threatening the United States and its allies.”

“Tonight I call on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria, and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types. We ask for God’s wisdom as we face the challenge of our very troubled world. We pray for the lives of the wounded and for the souls of those who have passed, and we hope that as long as America stands for justice, then peace and harmony will in the end prevail.”

“Good night and God bless America, and the entire world. Thank you.”

“There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons…”

Donald Trump’s address was extremely concise, wholly non-specific with regard to legal aspects of the military decision and action, while adding up to only a few hundred words. Perhaps Mr. Trump never anticipated Americans and people around the Earth wishing to hear him describe his legal perspective, and see his evidence making the case that Assad was responsible.

We the jury – citizens of America and the world – demand Donald Trump present any and all evidence he used to back the decision for launching cruise missiles on the sovereign nation of Syria…

This is an urgent demand.
