The war in Syria is getting nastier beyond imagination.

Killing in Syria.

Horrifying: The x-ray image shows a full-term foetus with a bullet lodged in its brain, shot dead in its mother’s womb Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2466574/War-Syria-Snipers-target-unborn-children-chilling-competition-win-cigarettes.html#ixzz2i8NKAUAc Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook

Snipers are paid to shoot the Fetus in the Womb not to speak of infants being shot.

 

And the Reward?

A Cigarette!

To what depths of depravity can a Human Mind sink?

 

Story:

 

The unborn children of Syrian women are the targets of a sickening war game where a shooter who murders a foetus in its mother’s womb is awarded with cigarettes, a British surgeon has revealed.

Dr David Nott witnessed evidence of fighters using civilians as target practice and on several occasions shooting pregnant women in the stomach, killing their unborn babies.

Dr Nott, recently returned from volunteering at a Syrian hospital, said there are local rumours the snipers are sell swords, working for the Assad regime, awarded when they ‘hit the correct targets’.

 

As women and children cross through the unnamed city where he was stationed, they would be shot by snipers – and their wounds followed disturbing patterns,

‘From the first patients that came in in the morning, you could almost tell what you would see for the rest of the day. It was a game,’ he told The Times.

War surgeon: Dr David Nott, pictured in 2008, treated civilian victims in Syria

 

‘One day it would be shots to the groin. The next, it would only be the left chest. The day after, we would see no chest wounds; they were all neck [wounds].’

Dr Nott told the newspaper that in his 20 years volunteering in war zones, this is the first time he had witnessed pregnant women being targeted.

He described the day two consecutive patients arrived at his clinic, heavily pregnant with their babies shot to death in their stomachs.

‘The women were all shot through the uterus, so that must have been where they were aiming for. I can’t even begin to tell you how awful it was.

‘Usually, civilians are caught in the crossfire. This is the first time I’ve ever seen anything like this. This was deliberate. It was hell beyond hell.’

Dr Nott, who counts Tony Blair among his former patients, has returned to London after five weeks in Syria to reveal abysmal conditions in the local hospitals with little to no evidence of aid.

The civil war in Syria show no evidence of slowing down today as government air force jets bombarded the eastern city of Deir al-Zor on Friday.

Heavy overnight clashes saw the killing of dozens of rebels and pro-Assad forces, including one of the president’s top military intelligence officers, activists said.

Syria’s civil war has killed more than 100,000 people and divided the Middle East between Sunni Gulf states and Turkey which mostly support the rebels, and Shi’ite Iran and Hezbollah which have backed Assad.

International efforts are growing to convene peace talks in Geneva next month, encouraged by rare agreement among global powers over the elimination of Syria’s chemical weapons after sarin gas attacks near Damascus in August.

But the United States and Russia, responding to Syria’s announcement that the talks would go ahead in Geneva on Nov. 23-24, said on Thursday that no date had yet been set.

The international envoy for Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, is due to hold talks in the Middle East next week to try to prepare for the negotiations, his spokeswoman said.

US Attack On Syria, Capabilities Targets

In Middle east, US on September 7, 2013 at 07:14

Now that the US has made up its mind to attack Syria, either with or without the coat-tail hanger UK, don’t worry it will come around not that ii matters much-it is PRO job for the US, have a look at the Capabilities ans The potential targets in Syria and how the US is placed.

Al Jazeera has published an interactive info-graphics.

The Cyber War.

The US has had a cyber bead drawn on Syria for well over a year now, plenty long enough to infiltrate and compromise key Syrian military systems, several experts say. But to what degree the US will use that capability is far from clear, especially since it might not be needed to accomplish its key goals.

Still, many experts say it is quite likely cyberweapons will be launched. Some even suggest using them would be a good idea, adding the US should tell the world what is happening so it can be shown that such weapons can be used responsibly without killing people.

US officials have outlined a series of options that are being considered for a direct assault by American and allied military forces against Syria, using Wednesday’s alleged chemical weapons attack as the pretext. The stepped-up military preparations make clear that the events on Wednesday are part of a provocation to justify yet another neo-colonial war in the Middle East.

The growing threat of direct US intervention in the war for regime-change against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was also underscored Friday by President Obama, who used an interview on CNN to indicate he was seeking to marshal international support and some form of legal cover for a US-led attack.

The New York Times reported in a front-page article Friday that senior officials from the Pentagon, the State Department and the intelligence agencies met with White House officials for three-and-a-half hours Thursday to outline possible military measures. The article cited unnamed officials, who said no decision was reached amid internal differences over whether to launch direct US military action in the coming days.

According to the Times, the military options discussed ranged from cruise missile strikes launched from US ships currently deployed in the Mediterranean Sea to a full-scale air war targeting civilian as well as military sites. The newspaper wrote: “The targets could include missile or artillery batteries that launch chemical munitions or nerve gas, as well as communications and support facilities. Symbols of the Assad government’s power—headquarters and government offices—also could be among the proposed targets, officials said.”

Pentagon’s Email Shows US Behind Syria Gas Attack

In Middle east, US on September 2, 2013 at 21:30

I raised doubts about the Chemical Attack in Syria in my post,also quoting that The US helped Saddam to Gas Iran.

Now, information has leaked through the hacked email of a Pentagon Colonel that the US was behind the Syria’s Chemical Attack.

WMD for Iraq and Chemical Weapon for Syria.

What is in store for Iran?

Story:

Meanwhile, the media has spread new proofs of the U.S. intelligence involvement to chemical attack near Damascus. Hacker got access to U.S. intelligence correspondence and published U.S. Army Col. ANTHONY J. MACDONALD’s mail. Macdonald is General Staff Director, Operations and Plans Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence the Army Staff. It’s about chemical attack in Syria.
In the message August 22 Eugene Furst congratulates Col. on successful operation and refers him to Wasington Post publication about chemical attack in Syria. From the Anthony’s wife dialog with her friend it’s clear the video with the children killed in the chemical attack near Damascus was staged by U.S. Intelligence.

There have been reports that the Syrian Government used Chemical Weapons and people have been killed and as Washing Post reports that the ‘US is mulling unilateral action’, while Britain is against it.

There was a report in the Christian Science Monitor that the earlier claims to this effect have been found to be untrue.

Chemical Weapon Attack In Syria How True

In Middle east on August 30, 2013 at 18:07

There have been reports that the Syrian Government used Chemical Weapons and people have been killed and as Washing Post reports that the ‘US is mulling unilateral action’, while Britain is against it.

There was a report in the Christian Science Monitor that the earlier claims to this effect have been found to be untrue.

The images flooded in only hours after the Aug. 21 chemical attack in Damascus’s eastern suburbs. And they soon reached the very highest rungs of the U.S. government: “As a father, I can’t get the image out of my head of a man who held up his dead child, wailing while chaos swirled around him,” said Secretary of State John Kerry in his impassioned Aug. 26 speech. “[T]he images of entire families dead in their beds without a drop of blood or even a visible wound; bodies contorting in spasms; human suffering that we can never ignore or forget.”

Social media also forms a key part of the British intelligence assessment about the attack. As a result of the videos, “there is little serious dispute that chemical attacks causing mass casualties … took place” in Damascus, according to an open letter from the chairman of Britain’s Joint Intelligence Committee to Prime Minister David Cameron.

The local activists who filmed these videos, then, have accomplished what years of hectoring from the official Syrian opposition have been unable to do — bring the world to the brink of military intervention against Bashar al-Assad‘s regime.(foreignpolicy.com)

CSM’s earlier report on the Chemical attack>

BEIRUT

An alleged chemical weapons attack near Aleppo yesterday, for which the Syrian regime and the opposition traded accusations of responsibility, almost certainly did not feature a lethal agent proscribed under international convention, say chemical weapons experts after considering the available evidence.

Video footage and eyewitness accounts suggest that if a chemical agent was used in a missile attack on Khan al-Aasal that reportedly killed 31 people and wounded more than 100, it was most likely a riot-control agent designed to cause irritation, which is not generally lethal.”

Let’s look at some of the images of this attack.

Meanwhile, news emerges that the US helped Saddam Hussein to Gas Iran.

In 1988, during the waning days of Iraq’s war with Iran, the United States learned through satellite imagery that Iran was about to gain a major strategic advantage by exploiting a hole in Iraqi defenses. U.S. intelligence officials conveyed the location of the Iranian troops to Iraq, fully aware that Hussein’s military would attack with chemical weapons, including sarin, a lethal nerve agent.

The intelligence included imagery and maps about Iranian troop movements, as well as the locations of Iranian logistics facilities and details about Iranian air defenses. The Iraqis used mustard gas and sarin prior to four major offensives in early 1988 that relied on U.S. satellite imagery, maps, and other intelligence. These attacks helped to tilt the war in Iraq‘s favor and bring Iran to the negotiating table, and they ensured that the Reagan administration’s long-standing policy of securing an Iraqi victory would succeed. But they were also the last in a series of chemical strikes stretching back several years that the Reagan administration knew about and didn’t disclose.

U.S. officials have long denied acquiescing to Iraqi chemical attacks, insisting that Hussein’s government never announced he was going to use the weapons. But retired Air Force Col. Rick Francona, who was a military attaché in Baghdad during the 1988 strikes, paints a different picture>

So the new script is being played out, to invade Syria.

Bahrain Shia Sunni Violence Simmers To Erupt

In Middle east on August 8, 2013 at 19:45

The Persian Gulf Country Bahrain is simmering because  of Social, economic and religious tension.

“Bahrain human rights activist Maryam Al-Khawaja says the government there is escalating its crackdown on protests in advance of a major opposition rally, and says that the regime continues to torture detainees. Al-Khawaja, President of The Bahrain Center For Human Rights, appeared on HuffPost Live Wednesday to discuss the Bahraini government‘s ban on protests as well as the cases of a photojournalist and blogger who were arrested and abused by police with host Ahmed Shihab-Eldin.

Barhrain Police Attack Protesters..

King Hamad’s royal decree last week banned protests in the country’s capital, Manama, and heightened “punishments” for those citizens who do not abide by the decree. The decree comes just two weeks before a major opposition rally planned for August 14, the celebration of Bahrain’s independence from the United Kingdom. While the Bahraini government has framed the decree as an amendment to the 2006 Law on the Protection of Society from Acts of Terrorism, the United Nations has expressed concern over what exactly this entails. In addition to the revocation of citizenship for anyone found guilty of terrorism and an increased detention period, it also bans sit-ins, rallies, and gatherings in the capital.

Al-Khawaja told HuffPost Live that the decree merely legalizes practices that have been in place for years, and the government has begun increasing its crackdown on protestors in recent weeks.”

The development is not new.

As usual, this is the legacy of the British.

Just as they messed up Palestine and  jinxed the Palestinian issue, by  complicating the local affairs for their perceived benefits and leaving the Sate as things became too hot,they installed a family to rule in Bahrain and the result is for every one to see to-day.

For their own commercial interests in Oil, US and the West are keeping a studied silence waiting for a suitable opportunity to install another Puppet.

In the meanwhile, people suffer.

One wold have noticed that the world media is also very coy about reporting the Bahrain riots.

Bahrain Uprising background  :

The Al Khalifas have ruled Bahrain since 1783 after expelling the Persians. In 1868, Bahrain was captured and dominated by the British. The country was a protectorate “guided” by the British, despite having the Al Khalifas as rulers. In 1923, the British replaced Sheikh Issa bin Ali with his son. Three years later the British placed the country under the de facto rule of Charles Belgravewho operated as an adviser to the ruler until 1957. Having no legal code, the country’s judiciary was run by Belgrave giving him the ability to control any opposition movement.[3]

The National Union Committee was equally composed of Sunnis and Shias.

In the 1950s sectarian clashes occurred when a group of Sunnis including members of the royal family, among them the ruler’s brother, attacked a Shia religious ritual and a neighborhood. Although many thought it was a “deliberate provocation to create sectarian divisions”, the violence lasted for two years. In 1954, the National Union Committee (NUC) was set up by middle-class Sunnis and Shias. They said Belgrave was “helping foment religious hatred and imprisoning innocent people” and demanded his removal as well as installing a democratic system and a code of law.[3] The NUC is regarded by Bahraini scholar Abdulhadi Khalaf as the “earliest serious and still enduring challenge to ethnic politics in Bahrain”.[4] The committee lasted for two years until the British crushed the uprising, imprisoning and deporting its leaders.[3]

In 1965 a month-long uprising broke after hundreds of workers at Bahrain Petroleum Company were laid off. Several general strikes were staged, however the movement was crushed again by the British. In 1966, the British persuaded Bahrain to appoint another “adviser”, this time a Colonel calledIan Henderson. The purpose, according to secret British documents was “to give Henderson a free hand to reorganise it [the "Special Branch"] into an efficient, modern covert surveillance ‘anti terrorist’ organisation”. Henderson was then known for his alleged role in ordering torture and assassinations during Kenya‘s Mau Mau Uprising. Henderson freed all those imprisoned in the 1965 uprising and allowed protest-related militants to return. This move was analyzed later as “building up an intricate system of infiltrators and double agents inside the protest movement”.[3]
