Woolsey On U.S. Foreign Policy: “Num, Num, Num…”

By Jerry Alatalo

resident Donald Trump of the United States spoke recently on the situation in Syria: “I will say … What Russia, what Iran, and what Syria have done recently is a humanitarian disgrace. I will tell you that we’re there (occupying an estimated 25-30% of the nation of Syria) for one reason … We’re there to get ISIS, and get rid of ISIS, and go home. We’re not there for any other reason, and we’ve largely accomplished our goal.”

Why did Mr. Trump find it necessary to assert that U.S. military forces were not occupying or controlling a large portion of Syria east of the Euphrates River – illegally according to international law and the United Nations Charter – for “any other reason”? What possible “other reason” was Mr. Trump referring to, was he responding to specific allegations, and how is it that such a mysterious-regarding-meaning, intriguing and suggestive statement received no further attention from corporate media? Does Mr. Trump feel his very brief explanation absolves his administration of any illegality regarding the U.S. military occupation of Syria, or somehow “magically” makes what is perceived by any international legal expert an illegal occupation now legal?

One wonders what Donald Trump would do were terrorists in the eastern suburbs of Washington, D.C. raining bombs and missiles down on residents of the city. Perhaps if the tables were turned, the people of the city of Damascus, Syria changed places with the people of Washington, D.C., Mr. Trump might have a slightly different way of perceiving things. Obviously he is well aware of the facts on the ground in Damascus and East Ghouta, yet the former reality TV star has learned well the 1st requirement of good actors: the ability to lie at will.

Donald Trump is a deceiver of the highest order. Donald Trump is arguably the most dangerous human being on Earth.

Perhaps if Mr. Orwell were around he could help with an explanation with regard to Mr. Trump. Of course, that’s just wishful thinking. Many think the near-prophetic Orwell described today’s world situation in 2018 with his classic novel “1984”. Unfortunately Mr. Orwell has long since left the Earthly realm, yet people are every now and then provided rare insight into the more mysterious operations of the world, such as recently from former Director of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) James Woolsey.

It is worth noting that Mr. Woolsey has been (or may still be) associated with a fossil fuels corporation by the name of Genie Energy, whose owners include individuals with names like Rothschild, Cheney, Summers, Murdoch, etc., and, notably – considering the increasingly dangerous situation in Syria, managed to acquire control over an immense, $multi-billion, recently discovered oil/gas deposit in the Israeli-occupied Syrian Golan Heights. It is also worth noting, but not surprising, that Fox News host Laura Ingraham made no mention of Genie Energy or the controversial Golan Heights in her recent interview of the former CIA director.

Ms. Ingraham did ask some very pertinent questions nonetheless, perhaps unwittingly, of Mr. Woolsey.

Laura Ingraham: “Have we ever tried to meddle in other countries’ elections?”

Woolsey: “Probably (?) … But, uh, it was for the good of the system in order to avoid communists from taking over. For example, in Europe in ’47, ’48, ’49, the Greeks (and) the Italians … the CIA …”

Laura Ingraham: “We don’t do that now though … We don’t mess around in other people’s elections?”

Woolsey: “W e l l … num, num, num, num, num … Only for a very good cause. Only for a very good cause in the interest of democracy.”

Laura Ingraham: “Thanks for being here. Always great to see you.”

What was particularly objectionable in the short interview, besides Ms. Ingraham’s clearly calculated plan of asking only “softball” non-controversial/probing questions, was the explosion of laughter after the CIA’s former top man unintentionally let slip a major, very rarely seen revelation on a major corporate media platform.

After nearly seven (7) years of unimaginable, seemingly endless death, destruction and suffering in his country of Syria, United Nations Ambassador Bashar Ja’afari most certainly finds nothing humorous about U.S./U.K./France actions against Syria. This is how the United Nations reported/described the address on February 24 to the United Nations Security Council by Mr. Ja’afari:

BASHAR JA’AFARI (Syria) said “moderate armed groups” based in Ghouta had targeted thousands of missiles at Damascus, attacking, among other locations, the headquarters of the Syrian Red Crescent.  Quoting a French citizen’s description of those attacks, and of others in recent years, he said doctors and other personnel had also been kidnapped by armed groups.  The delegate of France had today said that a truce must be observed.  While that was true, 29 other Council resolutions — including 13 on counter-terrorism — must also be implemented.  The delegate of the United Kingdom had presented horrific tales, but had omitted descriptions of those perpetrated by his own Government in Iraq, Palestine, Libya and even the Falkland Islands (Malvinas).  The Syrian Government had taken seriously and observed all de-escalation initiatives in order to protect the lives of its citizens and stop those “trading with their blood”, he said, calling on all States to sever any ties with terrorist groups in the country.  The Syrian Government retained the right to respond to attacks by such groups, he said, noting that some Council members supported those groups and even practiced State terrorism.

While the Syrian Government continued to practice extreme self-restraint, he said, the violations perpetrated by terrorist groups had become increasingly serious and now threatened the lives of 8 million people in Damascus.  “We bear the responsibility as a State for our citizens, and we have a right to counter-terrorism,” he said.  Syria had exercised its legitimate right, taking measures to protect civilians and allowing the safe exit of civilians.  Describing the White Helmets as the new representatives of the Al-Nusra Front, he called for full respect for his country’s sovereignty and for full consultation with its Government on all matters affecting it.  However, such core international principles were ignored, lost to political whims and double standards when it came to Syria.  Countries must stop spending millions of dollars to support terrorists, he said, noting that to date the United States alone had spent $4 billion in Syria.  Indeed, the Governments of the United States, the United Kingdom and France must stop devising strategic plans — reminiscent of their colonial times — aimed at dividing his country.  Syria had the right to defend itself according to Article 51 of the United Nations Charter, he said, emphasizing that double standards based on financial polarization, if unabated, would continue to mar the Organization’s reputation.


During his highly-charged, direct address to the United Nations Security Council where there was a unanimous 15-0 vote for a 30-day ceasefire in all regions of Syria, Bashar Ja’afari publicly states that U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley threatened war against his country, and issued a warning of his own in response.

To avert potentially catastrophic escalation of violence in Syria, the Middle East region and beyond, the decades-long criminally aggressive U.S. foreign policy – unwillingly and likely to his distressful regret described by ex-CIA chief James Woolsey as “Num, num, num, num, num…” – must end.

End The War In Syria.

yria’s Ambassador Dr. Bashar Ja’afari addressed the United Nations Security Council on February 14, 2018.


(Transcript – United Nations website)

Mr. Ja’afari (Syrian Arab Republic):

“Article 2, paragraphs 1, 4 and 7, of the Charter of the United Nations provide for respect for the principle of the sovereign equality of all its Members and that all Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any State. Moreover, no provision of the Charter authorizes the United Nations to intervene in matters that are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any State.”

“Likewise, all 29 resolutions on Syria adopted in the Security Council stress the strong commitment to the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic, as well as to the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter. It is our right today, as it is the right of all peoples of the world who still believe in the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter, to wonder what the Council is doing to ensure respect for those purposes and principles wisely established by the founders, with a view to maintaining peace, security and prosperity following the wars and tragedies that they experienced.”

“We in Syria know that our country is not the first victim of violations of Charter provisions and international law by certain members of the Council. However, what Syria has been enduring is the consequence of silence over the course of decades in the face of such violations. What did the Council do when certain Member States undermined the provisions of the Charter and prevented the Palestinian people from exercising their right to creating an independent State, with Jerusalem as its capital? What did the Council do when those Member States themselves violated the provisions of the Charter by invading Iraq? What did the Council do when those same States violated the provisions of the Charter and destroyed Libya?”

“What did the Council do when the same States violated Charter provisions by fuelling terrorism worldwide and called it the jihadi movement? What did the Council do when the same States violated the provisions of the Charter and flagrantly interfered in the internal affairs of Member States and looted their resources, as is the case with several African States? The animosity of certain countries towards Syria derives from the principle of arrogance of power, rather than the rule of law. It reflects disrespect to the purposes and principles of the Charter and a total lack of serious accountability on the part of those who avail themselves of the law of the jungle.”

“I would like to explain the unprecedented global terrorist war that my country has been subjected to over seven years, amid the silence of some, the complicity of some, the indifference of some, overlooking of some and conspiring of others. Certain influential countries on the Council — I mean the United States, the United Kingdom and France — have done all they can to destroy Syria, its people and its political standing, in order to settle scores with my country by manipulating the provisions of the Charter and violating its provisions so as to achieve their special agendas related to interference at the expense of the blood and the fate of the Syrian people.”

“They have exploited the media, and unfortunately some United Nations employees distort reality about what is happening in Syria and to lie to international public opinion regarding the human suffering of Syrian civilians. With regard to the suffering of Syrian civilians, it has been inflicted on them by armed terrorist groups for seven years.”

“Such groups use civilians as human shields, target hospitals and schools and use them as military posts, camps and detention centres for the people they abduct. In the past 20 days, the city of Damascus has been subjected to 1,000 missile and mortar attacks. Some Council members have manipulated the principles of the United Nations Charter and violated its provisions by giving orders to their regional partners to invest all they can in media and materials to support armed terrorist groups, by issuing Wahabi fatwas for the shedding of Syrian blood, by opening their borders to facilitate the entry into Syria of tens of thousands of mercenary terrorists from more than 100 Member States of this Organization, by setting up training camps in neighbouring States and by calling these terrorists moderate Syrian opposition.”

“Today those mercenary terrorists who come from more than 100 states are simply called Syrian opposition. It seems that their DNA has been altered, and now they are just the Syrian moderate opposition. It is no secret that this support to the terrorists has cost those States $137 billion, as confirmed by the former Prime Minister of Qatar. It is also no secret that the former United States Ambassador to Syria confirmed that his country had spent $12 billion over the four years from 2014 to 2017 in order to change the regime in Syria, as officials in Washington, D.C., want to do in Baghdad, Libya, Syria, Venezuela and Iran.”

“WikiLeaks documents have revealed the policies of successive American Administrations and shown that the United States Government has been opposed to my country since the American and British invasion of Iraq. Those countries have manipulated the principles of the Charter and violated its provisions by giving armed terrorist groups toxic chemicals to use against innocent civilians, subsequently manipulating the locales of such incidents and providing the investigation mechanism with concocting false information and fake testimony to accuse the Syrian Government in order to find an excuse to attack it.”

“There are 136 letters in the dossier I hold here, sent to the Member States by the Syrian Government and containing very important information on the acquisition of chemical substances outside Syria by terrorists for their use in Syria. Those chemicals were indeed used in Syria and, as I just said, 136 letters were written about them. The Council has the letters, but only a few of its members were interested in reading them. One of the most important political magazines, the American Newsweek, published an article on 8 February written by Ian Wilkie entitled “Now Mattis Admits There Was No Evidence Assad Used Poison Gas on His People”. The United States Secretary of Defence admits in that article that there is no proof of the use of toxic gas by the Syrian Government against it people, neither in Khan Shaykhun nor in Al-Ghouta in 2013.”

“The French Minister of Defence, Florence Parly, also said yesterday, like her American counterpart, that there is no documented proof of the use of chlorine gas by the Syrian Government. Yet the words of the French Minister did not prevent her President from threatening to stage an aggression against my country, Syria, as the former United States Administration did.”

“These countries have manipulated the principles of the Charter and breached its provisions when they tried to legitimize the recurring attacks perpetrated by the forces of what is called the International Coalition, led by the United States, the most recent of which was this illegitimate coalition’s attack on 8 February on northeastern Deir ez-Zor, against Syrian popular forces fighting terrorist Da’esh. This region, which is 30 kilometres wide and 65 kilometres long, and which was attacked by the Syrian popular forces against Da’esh, is under United States protection. Da’esh, which we defeated in Deir ez-Zor and Albuqmal, left these two cities under American protection and entrenched its presence in the region along the Syrian-Iraqi borders.”

“When the Syrian popular forces attacked Da’esh there, they were shelled by the United States Air Force. This is clearly yet another example of the Coalition’s real mission and the role played by Washington, D.C. in supporting the terrorist organization Da’esh, as it has done in the past, when the United States targeted Syrian Arab Army sites in Jabal Al-Thardah, near Deir ez-Zor, on 17 September 2016, enabling Da’esh to advance and occupy areas in Jabal Al-Thardah. The Coalition has deliberately destroyed 90 per cent of the Syrian city of Raqqa and has failed to uphold its commitment to defusing tens of thousands of mines left behind by Da’esh before abandoning the city and perpetrating terrorist acts under its two umbrellas — the United States, east of the Euphrates, and Turkey, north of Afrin.”

“It is unfortunate that in his statement, to which I listened carefully, the Special Envoy made no mention of the occupation of various areas in my country by the United States and Turkey. He did say that there was a cross-border dispute in Afrin, but did not mention the illegitimate Turkish presence in my country and the attack on the Syrian city of Afrin. These States have manipulated the principles of the Charter and violated its provisions when they stayed silent, along with the Department of Peacekeeping Operations, with regard to the repeated attacks by Israel’s occupation forces on areas of the Syrian Arab Republic, the most recent being their act of aggression on 10 February, which my United States colleague has attempted to justify by claiming that it was a response to an Iranian drone’s flight over occupied Palestinian territory.”

“That is not true; it is false and misleading. It is not the first time that we have witnessed Israeli acts of aggression against the sovereignty of my country. Every member of the Council is aware that Israel continued to violate my country’s sovereignty until one of its military planes was brought down by a Syrian rocket over occupied Palestine. Israel has consistently violated my country’s sovereignty — and I would like to remind the Council and the Department of Peacekeeping Operations of that.”

“The Council has been prevented from issuing statements condemning terrorist attacks by military organizations and their launching of more than 1,000 missiles and mortars, most recently targeting residential streets and suburbs, diplomatic missions, infrastructure and churches in Damascus and other cities. Those acts of aggression have resulted in dozens of civilian deaths and hundreds wounded, most of them women and children. These States have manipulated the principles of the Charter and violated its provisions when they talk about what they call besieged areas in eastern Ghouta and the Damascus countryside.”

“They have forgotten that the residents of eastern Ghouta have been besieged from within by armed terrorist groups that are operating from there, using civilians as human shields and attempting to divert humanitarian convoys for the benefit of their supporters or to sell their supplies to desperate people at exorbitant prices, as happened in eastern Aleppo.”

“At the time when the United States first decided unilaterally and illegitimately to intervene militarily in my country, Washington stated that its goal was fighting Da’esh. After that, it changed its mind, saying that it was in Syria to establish permanent military bases for safeguarding the strategic security of the United States and its allies. It later changed its mind once again, saying that the purpose of its presence in Syria was to establish armed militias in opposition to the Syrian Government and to enable them to exploit oil, gas, water and hydrocarbons and other resources in Syria — in other words, they wanted to establish a mini-State.”

“Subsequently, it changed its thinking once more, stating that it would remain in Syria even if Da’esh was defeated. It said the same thing about Iraq, in order to justify the presence of their forces there. It has continued to change its mind, saying that it would leave Syria only if a political settlement was reached and the security of its allies was assured. Most recently, it has stated that it is in Syria to fight Iran, Hizbullah and Russia. It has shifted its nuclear strategy and is considering the possibility of using nuclear weapons. Tomorrow, perhaps, it will tell us that it is in Syria to fight Martians from the Milky Way.”

“The Syrian Government commends the Russian Federation’s efforts, and specifically President Vladimir Putin’s initiative in hosting the Syrian National Dialogue Conference in Sochi, which was yet another demonstration of the fact that the only way to achieve the aims of the political process in Syria is with Syrian oversight and with no foreign interference of any kind. The conference participants represented every sector of Syrian society — political, social, cultural, economic, and more. Two documents were adopted by an overwhelming majority, a final statement and a document calling for the establishment of a constitutional committee.”

“I very much hope that the results that Sochi has produced will not be misinterpreted. The final statement, voted on and amended by the Syrian participants, was adopted unanimously by a broad majority through a democratic vote, based on the procedures established for the conference. It represents the basic pillar of the political process that will produce future dialogue and discussion, rooted in a solution that, assuming no foreign interference, will be entirely Syrian-led. The final statement represents a legitimate foundation for any political process, especially considering that it reflects national principles that have unanimous support in Syria and cannot be questioned — respect for Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and the Syrian people’s right to choose their own political and economic system and to maintain the Syrian Arab Army and armed forces.”

“Given the principle that the Syrian people themselves must determine their future and their Constitution, participants in the Syrian National Dialogue Congress in Sochi adopted a resolution to establish a constitutional committee. Consequently, the committee should be established according to the resolution voted on by the Syrians. The resolution identified the tasks of the committee, and the participants in the Congress did not grant the Special Envoy to Syria any tutelage, delegation or authority to establish the constitutional committee. We in Syria are committed to the decision taken by the participants of the Congress. We are not concerned with any committee set up by foreign stakeholders, and will not deal with the results of its discussions or with anything related to it.”

“The constitutional issue is a sovereign one. The Government of the Syrian Arab Republic remains committed to any political course that would end the bloodshed of the Syrian people, preserve my country’s unity and independence, ensure its sovereignty and uphold the principle of the Syrian people to determine their own future through Syrian dialogue. This firm principle has been underscored by all relevant Security Council resolutions on the Syrian crisis.”

“In conclusion, I would like to respond to my colleague of the United States, who called for peace in Syria and the implementation of resolution 2254 (2015), which was approved by her country. The resolution underscores the need to maintain the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of my country, Syria.”

“Given that the resolution, which was approved by Washington, D.C., underscores the need to maintain the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of my country, Syria, then why does the United States have forces in parts of my country? Has the United States of America not violated the very resolution that its delegation voted in favour of in the Council, where it was unanimously adopted?”

“Thank you for your attention.”

Syria’s Bashar Jaafari On International Terrorism.

H.E.Dr. Bashar Jaafari, United Nations representative from Syria – Statement at the Sixth Committee Meeting to discuss Measures to Eliminate International Terrorism –  October 2, 2017


Thank you, Mr. Chairman.

In the beginning I would like to congratulate you and wish you all the success in your duties.

I emphasize that we are fully ready to cooperate and work with you in a manner that guarantees the principle, respect for the principle, of equality between member states and to achieve the purposes of our organization.

I would like to begin by affirming that we support the initiatives of the Secretary-General and his efforts together with his under-secretaries in order to enhance the role of the organization in counter-terrorism.

My delegation aligns itself with the statement delivered by on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement. I would like to deliver the following observations in my national capacity, and allow me in this context to present part of the bitter experience lived by my country and my people throughout the last seven years, as a result of an irresponsible and serious political decision taken by some member state governments in order to dedicate their energies and resources to violent extremist ideologies, to support armed terrorist groups in my country Syria.

Mr. Chairman, It has become a given fact that Security Council resolutions on counter-terrorism, some of which were issued under Chapter Seven and they have reached a round 16 … decision resolutions … until now they do not find the path towards implementation.

Similarly, the UN global counter-terrorism strategy will not become reality on the ground, nor can member states agree on a standard legal definition of terrorism which has been a Syrian request since 1986, nor can member states succeed in negotiating a binding comprehensive and global Convention on counter-terrorism.

I declare, dear colleagues, none of this can succeed so long as the head of the snake remains in place, the masterminds remained in … remain in place. This head snake is represented by policies of member states in this organization, states that enjoy the power and influence and wealth. But they do not enjoy the values of good governance that deter it from abusing its capacities in imposing hegemony and waging war, and arming terrorists in any country that disagrees with these governments.

These governments still view armed terrorist groups and foreign terrorist fighters as an economic, military and political weapon that can be used to overthrow legitimate governments and to destroy state economies and capacities, and to kill their citizens and displace them as refugees and displaced persons, and to send them to death at sea – then she’s shedding tears on their lives.

And in speaking of foreign terrorist fighters allow me to present an explanation, a simplified explanation, of their recruitment process. They were citizens of more than 100 nationalities around the world, as affirmed by the report of the analytical support and sanctions monitoring team, issued as document S-2015-358. They were normal people who were influenced and misled by schools and religious centers funded by billions of oil and gas money in order to promote extremist terrorist Wahhabi ideology in different parts of the world under the cover of religious work, however with the Takfiri-Daesh (ISIL) angle.

Naturally, many state governments of member states in this organization, and particularly in the European Union, placed these individuals under surveillance being dangerous individuals who threaten society’s security, until narrow political interests have converged with the corruption of some of these states’ governments. These individuals were exploited and sent to fight in Syria and Iraq in order to, on one hand, spread terrorism, and second to rid Western societies of their presence.

As such foreign terrorist fighters began, as the UN calls them, began to flow into Syria through a well-planned process which involved governments and intelligence agencies. Tens of thousands of passports were issued and tourists visa entries into countries neighbouring Syria and Iraq, air flights and itineraries were devised by government intelligence agencies in order to make them untraceable. Some terrorists were even forced to travel through more than five international airports or airports on the same day.

This is documented in Interpol documents and in the UN counter-terrorism entities. As for weapons and training camps … and operations rooms were ready in the countries surrounding Syria and Iraq waiting to receive these terrorists, whom have been labeled as the moderate armed opposition. This is of course an opposition that has been genetically modified, because they are foreigners, but we are requested to call them moderate armed Syrian opposition.

The involved governments and their intelligence officers supervised this process, who have secured their arrival in Syria, then some of these governments were involved in illegal trade in oil and Syrian artifacts from Iraq and Syria. On top of all of this, some member state governments ignored what is happening on the internet and on social networks by way of spreading extremist ideology and calls to hate and bear arms, and to fund and donate to terrorists in Syria and Iraq by calling them Mujahideen.

And so, increased arrival of terrorist fighters have been facilitated to Syria and Iraq, until today encrypted messages are used to wage terrorist attacks everywhere on Earth. Mr. Chairman, What I have presented now is only an example of our suffering through seven years of terrorism, but it proves a fact that influential segments of the international community still lacks the political will to combat terrorism.

What we demand, ladies and gentlemen, is real political will to combat terrorism and to hold its supporters and financiers accountable. More precisely, we want to cut off the snake’s head, and not only to chase after its tail.

Thank you, Mr. Chairman.

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.
