John Kerry’s Syrian Fable

Kerry’s case for Syria attack fictitious

US Secretary of State John Kerry

“In May, this year, Turkish police arrested “Syrian rebels” caught in the act of carrying weaponized Sarin gas to Syria. However, the source of the Sarin was never revealed, those arrested disappeared and nothing was mentioned again.”

Related Interviews:

Today we heard American Secretary of State John Kerry give his compelling case for war on Syria. His story was compelling, perhaps even theatrical. It also rang of fiction.

It was a convenient narrative about the Assad government, which is popular among the Syrian people, a government clearly winning against a brutal and unpopular foreign-dominated insurgency.

Real intelligence is a mosaic, each source graded as to historical reliability and import. When enough pieces don’t come together or an unwanted outcome results, intelligence “fusion centers” cut out “bad facts” and amplify or invent “good ones.”

Kerry’s intelligence on Syria’s alleged use of chemical weapons goes further, down the slippery slope of a detailed narrative, a “cooked” story, perfectly timed, containing the right anecdotal details, a classic “deception and cover” tale right out of the Mossad book of deception.

I can’t imagine how Kerry could keep a straight face; perhaps it is embalmed with Botox.

Behind the story

In May, this year, Turkish police arrested “Syrian rebels” caught in the act of carrying weaponized Sarin gas to Syria.

They were arrested as reported on all world news sources. However, the source of the Sarin was never revealed, those arrested disappeared and nothing was mentioned again.

However, during this time frame, UN inspectors investigated five episodes of chemical weapon use and were able to conclude that “rebel forces” were responsible.

Secretary Kerry has erased this event from his memory, erased it from his “mosaic.”

“If it doesn’t fit, use a bigger hammer.”

Narrative problems

In order to sound credible, Kerry quoted exact numbers of adults and children killed. Exact numbers always sound best, or so 99.372514% of experts I have questioned tell me.

Kerry described “textbook” symptoms of Sarin gas exposure, but all of the photos supplied failed to demonstrate any of the symptoms.

Sarin victims are invariably found in pools of vomit, their bladders and bowels emptied, befouling their clothing.

By the time bodies are moved for careful photographic exploitation, lividity sets in, leaving the skin pearly white or deeply bruised, even blackened, on areas where blood settles.

As Kerry noted, death by Sarin gas is a horror, but the only photos clearly reflecting “death by Sarin” are from May 2013 and tied to Sarin gas used by rebel forces.

Money and politics

It may be crass of me to mention this, but without the current threat of war on Syria, the current wave of good feeling about Iran’s new moderate government would have crashed fuel prices at the worst time, right before the Labor Day holidays.

This is when oil companies rake in billions through rigging prices at consumer level and, in concert with their friends in “high places,” keep the Middle East in conflict to push up crude oil futures as well.

Running out of enemies

Kerry’s big problem, Obama’s as well, is that they are running out of enemies at a time when America’s influence around the world is crashing.

With Iran gone as a phony threat, the baseless allegations over Iran’s peaceful nuclear program increasingly harder to sell, inventing a rationale for dropping a few cruise missiles into Syria is obvious.

If there is no foreign threat, one has to be created or the American people might just wake up.

The deepest concern for the Obama administration has nothing to do with Syria. Obama has been briefed by his security team on a much larger threat, one that will push America into isolation and third world status before the end of the decade.

Russia and China, now working closely in concert, are in ascendance around the world.

China virtually controls all of Asia and Africa. American attempts to push Japan to rearmament are too little and way too late. China is also making inroads into Central and Latin America, America’s “back yard.”

As for Russia, the collapse of the European Union signals the renewal of Russian influence across Europe.

Russia is strengthening relations with Iran, has made inroads with Iraq, has, thus far at least, been a stalwart ally of Syria and has issued strong rebukes toIsrael.

Increasingly, Europe looks to Putin as a responsible voice as the EU crumbles in financial ruin.

Obama and Kerry see an attack on Syria, one staged before Russia is strong enough to offset declining US influence in the Middle East, as a way of discrediting Putin and making him appear to be a “paper tiger.”

Perhaps a dangerous risk here is empowering the “Axis of Irrelevance,” Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, “neither dog nor tail,” three nations of ambition and greed with no vision or purpose.

    What happened to your theory that Obama and Putin are working together to get rid of Israel?

    Is this still happening ,in your view,or are things different (again)?

    Your articles lately lack the word “Israel” or “Jews”,even in this one just a mention in the “Axis of Irrelevance”.

    Are you starting to see there are other forces involved in this Middle East “strategy” of F/UK/US,and that Israel and US/GB are enemies now?

    Do you agree BRICS+ Israel(+Iran+Iraq+Syria+Egypt+Lebanon+Saudi Arabia) against Rothschild /Rockefeller is a posibility?

    It would explain Obama’s and F/UK/US impotence,wouldn’t it…..

      In other words, is Netanyahu ordering the US to attack Syria, or else? The Zionist media in the US is well aware of the growing distaste of the American people against Israel. They’re about to pull something desperate.

    • shachalnur  September 1, 2013 at 11:13 am

      No Joe,

      “All possible scenario’s” is a chemical attack on israel by Al-Nusra.

      And he says that if a US attack on Syria causes mayhem in Israel,the US will find out why it was bad idea.

    • Pink Rabbit  September 1, 2013 at 5:51 pm

      Mr. shachalnur: I am trying to save what you write. At first because I couldnt understand it. Now it is an experience in watching a historic series of events. If only it wasnt so ultimately horrific.

    Mr. Duff, thanks for your usual “Excellent Analysis.”

    —Libya–Still in turmoil, nothing has been accomplished not “even oil”

    —While USA goes to war in Libya and spend more than a “TRILLION” Dollars of China/our tax dollars for Regime Change,” according to Russia-RT TV & China-CC TV, they have been working to strengthen BRICS $100 billion currency reserve fund
    financial stability.

    —Now with Syria, who has the best military in the world, with the help from Iran another best in the world, ”ONLY GOD KNOWS, BUT HE WON’T TELL.” Of course, we will find out after the fact.

    __One thing is for sure, they closed over 20 USA Embassies recently, after Syria Attack, they just have to sit in their comfortable offices and order to close all of them.

    These loathsome, sickening creatures, the likes of John Kerry and the rest of his NATO buddies, not only mass murder humanity at will, they turn around and use the very things they do to us to shock the naive into believing their murderous lies.

    Sarin gas, depleted uranium, and all the other poisons used on us on a continuing basis… what’s the difference? It’s all mass murder of innocent human beings.

    As if NATO cares one iota for the Syrian people or any of us.

    • sweetliberty  August 31, 2013 at 10:44 pm

      ‘UK intelligence blames Assad regime for chemical attacks..”open source” “slam dunk”..USA alone..’


  5. jglassel.  August 31, 2013 at 6:27 pm

    I was worried, Gordon. Had not seen anything from you in several days. Another great article!

    Also, the Federal Reserve expires in December. 100 years of enslavement by the banksters. Probably not possible to get Congress not to renew, but as long as we are lobbying against the war, maybe we can lobby against the Fed, as well.

    END WAR!

    “I can’t imagine how Kerry could keep a straight face…”

    I have to wonder if it has anything to do with his Jewish ancestry. Lying is almost second nature and is justified through yearly recital of their Kol Nidre oath.

    On this subject of Syrian intervention, Ken O’Keefe debates Lawrence Korb, a ‘senior fellow’ at the Center for Amerikan Progress and a shill for the statist scum who are itching for WWIII. O’Keefe probably knows a dozen ways to kill a man before even picking up a weapon, but in this debate he demonstrates why he is the ultimate warrior for truth. He fights with every fiber of his being, and his ability to verbally articulate his thoughts in a clear, rapid-fire format makes him devastating. His mind is his most dangerous weapon.

    Skip ahead to 3:36 into it for the fun part:

    Excellent article…E-mail it to your frnds…print it and send it to your local Congress-critter…

    The Billy Graham ad on this page is laughable: ” I have hope in america bc of Jesus Christ..” Jeshua, the Son of God and Messiah…isn’t even mentioned in our Constitution…America, perhaps the first country founded w/o a national religion ( unless you count Freemasonry-and we probably should ) and now one of only several that recognize sodomite “marriage” should shudder at His justice…And these founding “principles” are part of the reason for our foreign policy: All our wars have been about 1. war profiteering…2. white supremacy and 3. anti-Catholicism ( especially Mexican-American, Spanish American…) Sorry to go off on an ad but these Zionist boot licking “Christians” are a big part of the problem!

    • jglassel.  August 31, 2013 at 6:22 pm

      I agree, Graham is a joke. Just another money grubbing evangelical preacher.

      The Nag Hammadi codices have been unearthed for 60 years. Anyone who claims to be Christian needs to educate themselves on the true “Christ.” The spirit within.

      No preacher should stand between anyone and their god, if they choose to even have a god.

      This is from the Secret Book of John (Human Being)

      “I have told you everything now so that you can write it all down
      And share it with your fellow spirits secretly
      For this is the mystery of the unmoved race.”

      The Savior gave all of this to him to write and to keep carefully. He said to him, “Anyone who exchanges it for a present, or for food, or for drink, or for clothing, or for anything else of that sort will be cursed.”

      Kinda shows why preachers left this text out, it is forbidden to make any money in Gnosticism!

      Don’t be sorry Charlotte~ They actually believe that they will be part of Gods plan for a new Heaven on earth but f they will throw all those murderous bastards into the Pit first, it clearly states in the bible;that a new Israel will come down from the heavens and everything that was build by them will be destroyed God told them they were to walk aimlessly without a Country not to go out and kill millions to keep Israel that isn’t supposed to be a Israel until the lord returns and so many of them hate Jesus I don’t think God is to pleased by them … What worse he has been keeping his own people in fear for far to many yrs they lie and tell them every day the world hates them and we plan on destroying them I just read where Israel PM said in an article that there is a world wide threat against the Jewish all over the world and he measured this so called threat by saying Israelis are on high alert…. I read Israel today just to get their take on matters that shock me but they seem to be born missing a sensitivity chip….

    • denysepez  August 31, 2013 at 10:03 pm

      If you read Issiah 25 and on it clearly states what the plans of Israel will be.according to the lord.. .The Jews always refers people to Issah 17 about Syria but keep reading I’m sure they must have blocked this.from the minds of their people~ I only read the old testament as I trust in the words….

    • joeflaherty  September 1, 2013 at 10:39 am

      The OT is a history of the Anglo-Saxon peoples, not Jews. The NT is salvation through Christ, His teachings, and end time prophecies.

  9. Cold Wind  August 31, 2013 at 5:38 pm

    Very nice article, particularly the part implicating the Mossad as the progenitor of Kerry’s fictional narrative. I fervently hope Americans do not pass over this critical detail. The pressing question is:despite the facts presented in this article, will there be war? Will Congress (after that inevitable phone call from AIPAC) ignore the facts and the risk giving the President a green light to start humanity’s last dance?

    • Charlotte NC Bill  August 31, 2013 at 5:52 pm

      Forget AIPAC’s phone call…Congress needs to be flooded by OUR phone calls! Call/e-mail…especially call you Rep and Sen on Tues-or sooner!

  10. winston smith  August 31, 2013 at 5:18 pm

    All wars are bankers wars Gordon.
    The Federal Reserve needs a good reason not too taper September.
    Nothing like a war to create debt.
    The price of oil is merely a bonus to the voracious debt enslavement by
    the Federal Reserve.Its whole reason d’etre.

    • mommyplayer  August 31, 2013 at 7:08 pm

      Wasn’t Syrian attack planned even before QE was restarted with QE 3 & 4 . So even if helps current banking economics there was another reason before .
