American, British Citizens Killed In Syria

Tyler Durden's picture




 

First a big caveat: the following comes from CNN, the world's farce leader, so take it with a quarry of salt.

That said, CNN's household access is pervasive and when it comes to setting the social mood based on a news report, be it completely fabricated or not, the news organization is second to none. Which may be precisely why it is CNN that is reporting that in Syria - a place just itching for the proverbial match to be struck on a mountain of geopolitical gunpowder involving all the key actors: from the US, to Russia, Europe, China, and of course Israel, said match may have just been lit.

To wit: "Syrian state-run television reported Thursday that forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad killed three Westerners, including an American woman and a British national, who they claim were fighting with the rebels and were found with weapons and maps of government military facilities."

More:

Syrian TV identified the woman, releasing what it claimed were her Michigan driver's license and U.S. passport. It also released what is said was the name and passport of a British citizen. It did not identify the third Westerner.

 

The TV report claimed the three were also found with a flag of the al-Nusra Front, an al Qaeda-linked group.

 

The United States is aware of the claim that an American was killed and is working through the Czech Republic mission in Syria to obtain more information, a State Department official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told CNN.

 

Citing privacy considerations, "we are unable to comment further," the official said."

Why westerners were fighting the Syrian government alongside Al Qaeda "rebels" is not known. What is known is that tomorrow front pages across the nation will be blasting "American woman killed in Syria" and the ensuing thirst for revenge will be just the missing link needed by the administration, in lieu of having found no weapons of mass destruction, to escalate the conflict even further. Especially when the media helpfully reminds that as we reported earlier, Russia has already delivered at least one of the promised S-300 missile shipments to Assad. All the other details: those involving the true nature of the Qatari mercenaries posing as "rebels", the Al Qaeda links, the source of rebel armaments, the UN refutation of the WMD storyine, and most importantly, any mention of the Qatari gas pipeline access to Turkey which this is all about, will be ignored.

A thought experiment..

Why is Europe the big winner from QEx?

Why was Europe the big winner from Libya?

Why will Europe be the big winner from the trans-Syrian pipeline?

Why is Israel pushing so hard for war with Syria/Iran when Israel has the most to lose and least to gain from such a war involving Russia?

As usual MSM slow on the uptake and will continue to fade in the face of real, immediate journalism, hence CNBS' plunging viewership.  Although of reading the comments sections of all the major MSM news sites, the commenters on CNN seem to be the absolute stupidest unaware ignorant Dancing w/ The Stars, lets's suck BHO's dick cause he's the greatest leader ever--readers.  Stupid fucking sheep.  Thanks ZH for all that you do in being the Yin to MSM's Yang.

Anway, saw this on Liveleak yesterday:

http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=81f_1369861560

which links to more photos (you know, actual real news, not sterilized CNN version), warning graphic for those pussies with sensitive stomachs, looks legit to me (although I can't clearly ID the female) when there are bits of skull on the terrorists chest:

http://breakingnews.sy/en/album/102.html

Liveleak is actually one of the best places for stuff coming out of Syria, I check it multiple times a day, plus they have some freakin' awesome battle footage if that turns your crank.  If you go to the syria section and sort by date, you can pretty much spend an afternoon with some beers watching the whole clusterfuck unfold over time.  Also another good source of info is this guy's blog: http://syrianperspective.blogspot.com/

Edit: If you want to see some of the better stuff, do a search for 'syria', then sort the vids by comments:

http://www.liveleak.com/browse?q=syria&sort_by=comments

Some very interesting, very very graphic vids here (including that cannibalism vid, execution vids, and just general 'horors of war' vids).  The sickest stuff I've ever seen online, and I've seen the bowels of the internet.  If more people saw what really goes on in war, I don't think we'd be so asleep and tolerant of the shit our .gov gets us involved in.  We need to get our people out of the ME ASAP.

Oh, and by the way, the correct word is "Michiganians", NOT "Michiganders".  There is no such place as "Michigand".

Maybe Michigan (or at least the Detroit area) was a nice place, 20 or 30 years before I was born.

I found living there to be dull, pedestrian, conformist to the nth degree, and utterly soul-sucking.  Suicide was often on my mind.  The one saving grace was the diversity and eclecticism to be found in Ann Arbor, but even that was pretty thin gruel to try to exist on for years on end.

That's why I fled over 20 years ago to the far edge of the continent.

I know the feeling akak. When I moved to Spokane in 1977 I thought my life had ended. Coming from Ojai, which was a small town known for It's artists and Krotona theosophical Society, I was used to being around many fascinating intelligent people who always pushed the boundries of my world. Life was colorful and I was exposed to so much as a young child. My parents were intellectuals and expected my brother and me to participate in conversations with all their friends and associates. Nothing was dumbed down for us. When we moved to Spokane all that ended. Life became grey and tasteless. Not that anyone was bad but it was so white bread. Conversations were simplistic, no one had a thought other than what was required for day to day living. Living there was a sisyphean hell hole for me. Mr miffed proposed to me at 19 and I said I would marry him if he got a job in Cali. I never said I was smart. Unfortunately the Cali I knew disappeared about 10 years after we came back. Frankly I'm grateful he hasnt kicked my ass over it. If I weren't for my lunacy he would have been working at Microsoft in the 1980s.

Solves the restless native problem? "can't beat this system." makes Vegas look like a play thing. What institution isn't on board? The only one's stepping on the brakes here are the Sec Def, Secretary of State, I think the President but I can't tell...and obviously the military which I love, respect and never had the resources equal to the task when this whole thing began. I see nothing to suggest our "fighting days" are being ramped up either now or in the future. My view in fact is that we have a situation whereby military "might" exists to support diplomacy ala the 70's and 80's. I think this will continue for some time...especially because "the beatings from management" refuse to stop. In other words "until there is a recovery the American people actually see and feel." this can change of course...but at least for the forseeable future it won't be because "suddenly America is paying the bills." all this new revenue is in the "already spent" column. If you're trying to win an election next cycle you're going to need OBSCENELY strong growth to motivate your following.

Gaius Publius: They Don’t Hate Us for Our Freedom, They Hate Us for Our Bombs

Yves here. This post makes a critical point that is deliberately obscured in domestic war mongering discussions of Middle East policy: that invaders and occupiers are never welcomed with open arms (despite Iraq War fantasies to the contrary) and hostility and efforts to make it costly for us to stay should hardly be surprising.

US armed forces kill enemy combatants - civilian or not - by the truckload, every week. This is a combat zone. People will die. Even if they were not combatants, since when does working in a wazone not come with a risk of death?

Is this the "indestructible passport" redux?

They ain't cuttin' off heads in Oklahoma, far as I know. But I do know this: you strap on a gun and go struttin' around some other man's country, you'd better be ready for some action, Jack.

You don't get it. In Holland there is already a huge controversy about young (muslim and unemplyed) Dutch citizens being recruited for "jihad" against elAsad.  Their parents interviewed on TV and promptly receive death threats.

You can be sure that there is such recruitment going on in Dearbornistan. And Londonistan. Not to speak about former colonial power France. 

alAsad has correctly predicted that these jihadi's will return with a vengeance...

Jordan Opens Plant to Make Russian Grenade Launchers

A Jordanian-Russian joint venture to produce RPG-32 portable rocket-propelled grenade launchers was unveiled in Jordan on Thursday, the Russian manufacturer said.

http://en.ria.ru/world/20130530/181426863.html

This is the new RPG-32... and they sold 1500 to the Lebanese army in 2010... who knows how many Hezbollah got from that... Remember Hezbollah used the (back then top notch) RPG-27 to take out several Israeli tanks... now they will have the RPG-32, which is probably a little better... it's has tandem warhead (for tanks) and thermobaric warheads (for infantry). Not a game changer by itself, but quite useful.

Russian Warplanes Go on 24-Hour Duty in Snap Alert Drill

And a repeat... but an important one... IF TRUE... (with a big grain of salt...) They say it's just a volunteer corps outside of government... but is it really? Doubtful. IMO it's bull... until we see reports of Russian troops kicking asses in Syria... Ukraine is an economic basket case... veterans of the army probably are poor like the rest of the folks... so for them to go fight for Syria in exchange for money, insurance if they die and property might be a good deal.

RUSSIAN-UKRAINIAN VOLUNTEER CORPS WILL LEAVE FOR SYRIA

 

Few thousand people signed for the Russian-Ukrainian volunteer corps, to be sent to Syria to assist its leadership in the fight against the rebels. This has said, as the "New Region", the initiator of the volunteer units, the intelligence veteran, Ukrainian Sergey Razumovsky.

"We are literally under barrage. All of our electronic resources form people who want to join the Corps. Most of theem are from Russian Federation, but also Belarus and Moldova even "- says Razumovsky. As for his fellow countrymen from the Ukraine, they are, he admits, "responding with difficultty."

The authorities of the Republic, says intelligence veteran, did not respond to the initiative.

When they plan to complete the formation of the corps, the agency did not specify.

The video message on the establishment of volunteer corps Razumovsky published in mid-May. He addressed his appeal to "all veterans of military services of the Soviet Union, all Russian and Ukrainian officers, residing in the country of Ukraine." Complaining of poor living conditions of officers (namely the lack of housing), a veteran intelligence official said that "this government officers do not need" and that in this situation they can offer their skills leadership of another country - namely to help Syrian President Bashar Assad in the restoration of constitutional order.

According Razumovsky, the Syrian government in return can provide volunteers the citizenship, to provide insurance to their (volunteers) to the families and to help with the purchase of property (after the end of the war).

Author also officially announced his intention to appeal to the government of Syria, as well as the commander of the Russian Black Sea Fleet to assist in sending volunteers.

Well certain facts ruined the philisophical nature of your question for me.  The s300 being targeted by radar is ill suited to striking land targets.  The s300 being designed for defense against aircraft carrys a payload of only a few kg of high explosive and probably wouldnt kill anyone if it were for some act of insanity be targeted at Tel Aviv.   The retaliation against anyone striking Tel Aviv with a missle would  undoubtably be substantial. Iron dome would most probably intercept a s3000 should someone be insane enough to launch a s300 at them.  The act would be the equivilant of hitting the largest guy on the football team with a spitball, satisfying for about two seconds until the pain starts.

Everything you ever see posted here will be about collapse and chaos, the powers who try to control it, and what you as an individual might be able to do to help yourself and/or others.

It is about the endgame and how it arrives, it doesn't matter by what route.

Use the information how you see fit, trade off it, be depressed, revel in the insanity, look for useful and reasoned commentary or its opposite, i really don't see zh as having any particular agenda within the current framework... Besides of course an end to the madness, maybe simple journalistic integrity? Attempting for an open flow of information and discourse?

I'm not naive, and hopefully that goes for most people that post/read here..
