Chemical Weapons: What to Believe?
It has been reported that President Gaddafi of Libya had secretly stockpiled chemical weapons.
Now we are hearing that President Assad of Syria may soon consider using chemical weapons on the revolutionaries in his country.
What seems strange though, and I see nothing in the Western media about allegations that some of Libya’s chemical weapons have been transferred to Turkey, a neighbor of Syria.
Turkey: a country that is violently discriminating against the Kurds. A secondary reason for the invasion of Iraq was that they were supposedly using chemical weapons against the Kurds.
There are also reports that some of the alleged revolutionaries in Libya have been spotted in Syria.
If these rumors are true, is the West being duped or are they actually part of this game of deception?
- New Heights in Hypocrisy
Saudi Arabia is complaining to the United Nations about human rights violations in Syria. Do they have a right to do this considering that they have the worst human rights record in the region? What should the US do about it?
- Is the War, on Terrorists or Terror?
We are told that we are winning the war on terror. Is this true? What will define success and is it possible to have two winners?
Some time ago President Gaddafi stated that he believed that the Arab League had been “bought” by the United States and that this situation would be used to try and take down the Libyan and Syrian leaderships.
Was this a coincidence or a perceptive prophecy?
Saudi Arabia and its allies in the region have long been opposed to the reign of President Assad in Syria. Now that the interests of the United States require a leadership change in Syria, to secure US bases there in a prelude to the invasion of Iran, working together, they are trying to now bring about a dethroning of Assad.
The rumors are that perhaps insurgents, affiliated to the Arab League are in fact attacking Syrian forces initiating a response from them.
- World War 111
Will the Disagreements in the Middle East, signify the start to WW111. Who would be the players and why?
As I have said: these are only rumors.
However, do they have more credibility than what we are hearing from the western media?
Firstly Iraq, supposedly attacked because they had Weapons of Mass Destruction, only for it to be found out later that none existed.
Then, Libya and now Syria, on the grounds of human rights abuses, yet an ally to the west on this is Saudi Arabia, where a woman can be stoned to death for having been raped.
Syria, a country that assisted the US in tracking down Ben Laden opposed to Saudi Arabia, where Ben Laden and most of the 9/11 terrorists came from?
This is what is confusing: what are the real values that the US is fighting for?
Are they the orchestrators or the innocent tools of a secret power struggle in the Middle East?
What should be happening is that the US media should be giving the American people all of the facts, enabling them to make up their own minds as to who are the real villains in this scenario. However, they choose to use their resources as a propaganda machine, in favor of US policy regardless of its validity or integrity.
The question that remains in all of this is: will any eventual pay offs for the US actions, be beneficial to all Americans or just the few that dictate the policies and run the media?
- Who are the Leaders?
Are there a group of powerful people that really rule? They control the politicians and all their actions. They consider themselves Demi- Gods and beyond the law.
- Who Profits from War?
Do countries really profit from war, or is it just companies and shareholders?
- Is Democracy, Hypocrisy?
Democracy is supposed to be good, but with more people refusing to vote, has it become hypocrisy. Is there a better way?
- What, How, Why and Who are the United States of America?
What has the US become today? Why is it that Americans are not still shown the respect they once were? What are the reasons and what can be done?
