Patrick J. Buchanan: 20 Years after 9/11—Are We Better Off?
The triumphant Taliban of today are far stronger than were the Taliban of 2001 who fled at the approach of the Northern Alliance. Al-Qaida is now present in many more countries than it was when we first launched the Global War on Terror.
Nor is the America of 2021 the hubristic self-confident country of George W. Bush and the neocons who were going to convert the Middle East into something like our Middle West and advance from there “with the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world.”
Our country is a changed place from 2001. Gone are the unity, confidence and resolution. And how have all our interventions gone?
BBC Admits Syria Chemical Attack Documentary Had “Serious Flaws”
FRIDAY, SEP 10, 2021
The BBC’s Executive Complaints Unit (ECU) has admitted there were “serious flaws” in a Radio 4 documentary by journalist Chloe Hadjimatheou on the alleged 2018 chemical attack in the Syrian city of Douma.
On 2 September, the UK national broadcaster issued a statement which read:
“The ECU found that, although they were limited to one aspect of an investigation into a complex and hotly contested subject, these points represented a failure to meet the standard of accuracy appropriate to a program of this kind.”
… The documentary in question dealt with an alleged chemical attack in the city of Douma in 2018, and included an account by a former inspector with the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), identified as ‘Alex’ during the program, who expressed concerns about the conclusions of the OPCW on the matter.
In 2019, ‘Alex’ teamed up with Wikileaks to expose the OPCW for allegedly doctoring a report over the Douma chlorine attack, as OPCW officials notably avoided revelations from the fact-finding mission which may point to terror groups having been behind the purported gas attack.
Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif claimed in recently leaked audio that John Kerry, when he was serving as Secretary of State during the Obama administration, informed him of more than 200 Israeli operations in Syria.
22:40 “Through violence, the Jewish state is trying to make it look like these prophecies (which many have been fulfilled…), they’re trying to make it look as if they are coming to pass, but in fact they are not.”
23:30 “This is really not a ‘peace accord.’ It’s a war accord. They’re using this ‘peace initiative, or this Abrahamic accord in order to prepare their coalition to go against Iran.”
33:30 “The sad thing is that when it comes to the United States, they [Israel] is done with America. I was told that straight up by people I know in Israel. China will be the next superpower, and they [Israel] will work with China. And they will use Russia to bring down this nation down, along with China.”
54 Truth about Syria: Turkey brought in the Sarin gas to falsely blame Assad for gassing his own people.
Christians and Jews say Damascus must be destroyed according to Bible prophecy, but Isaiah 17 actually says God holds Christians and Jews responsible for the destruction of Damascus, because they armed a faction to destroy Syria.
59:00 GREATER ISRAEL PROJECT: “They [Israel] had to go a long way to instigate all America’s wars on the Middle East to create this scenario. As we know, General Wesley Clark said seven nations would be taken down in five years. Of course, the timeline is off, but not the nations. The United States has played a heavy role in bringing down these nations.”
Assad is not a terrorist, and did not gas his own people. Syria was a beautiful place with freedom of religion. The CIA and Mossad were/are the terrorists in Syria, trying to use ISIS to regime change Syria for the Greater Israel Project, which Russia largely stopped.
Trump: I Wanted To Assassinate Syria’s Bashar Assad
President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he wanted to assassinate Syrian dictator Bashar Assad, contradicting his own past denials that he had ever considered killing Assad and weakening his claim to be an anti-war president.
“I would have rather taken him out. I had him all set,” Trump told ”Fox & Friends” in response to a question about Assad. Trump blamed his former defense secretary, retired Marine Gen. Jim Mattis, for holding him back: “Mattis didn’t want to do it. Mattis was a highly overrated general and I let him go.” …
Trump considered the assassination in April 2017, after the first major Syrian chemical weapons attack of his presidency, journalist Bob Woodward revealed in a book published in 2018. “Let’s kill the fucking lot of them,” Trump said, per Woodward. He ultimately settled on a limited airstrike against Assad’s forces ― the first U.S. intervention of that kind in the Syrian civil war.
For years, Israel has religiously adhered to the official party line that the country’s policy was non-intervention, and this has now been exposed as a lie. Such a loss of public credibility may significantly inhibit its abilities to conduct influence operations in the future.
From USA’s ZeroHedge 1/14/19
What is clear, and now finally settled for the historical record, is that for years Israeli concealed its “hidden hand” in the proxy war while feigning merely “humanitarian aid”— something now fully admitted by Israel’s top military commander. In other words the humanitarian smokescreen was cover for a full-on covert war on Damascus, as we and many other independent outlets have reported many times, and for years.
Israel’s Top Commander Finally Spills Secrets Of “Invisible War” In Syria
For years Israel denied allegations that it had a role in funding and weaponizing the anti-Assad insurgency in Syria, and more often military officials responded “no comment” even when confronted with overwhelming evidence of Israeli weapons documented in al-Qaeda linked insurgents’ hands, but this all changed in a new British Sunday Times interview with outgoing Israeli army commander Gadi Eisenkot, who has finally confirmed the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) supplied weapons to rebels across the border “for self-defense,” and further perhaps more stunningly, has admitted to long waging an “invisible war in Syria” that involved “thousands of attacks”.
The interview constitutes the first time that any current top Israeli military or government official has fully acknowledged sending anything beyond “humanitarian supplies,” such as medical aid to Syrian militants seeking to topple the Assad government; and yet it still appears the country’s military chief is slow playing the confirmation, only acknowledging the IDF provided “light weapons” — even after years of reporting has definitively uncovered an expansive Israeli program to arm dozens of insurgent groups and pay their salaries, includingknown affiliates of al-Qaeda in Syria.

Why don’t “Christians” in the US care about what we (and what Trump brags about doing – “take the oil”) do to others, whom Jesus commanded us to love as much as ourselves?
Why won’t “Christians” admit we are wrong in our regime-change wars and share articles like this, so we stop our reverse-Christian behavior — and actually love people instead?

“The oil fields… are controlled by the US. There’s shameless, impudent pillage of the wealth that belongs to Syria and the Syrian people taking place,” Shoigu said during a visit to the Italian capital Rome.
At the same time, the sanctions imposed by Washington against Damascus ban any oil shipments to Syria, putting the country in a tight spot.
Trump has again fully admitted he’s using American troops to take Syria’s oil, which is illegal and immoral.
“Trump disgraces our military by using our men & women in uniform as mercenaries serving the interests of multinational corps (e.g. Exxon) & foreign countries (e.g. Saudis). We must stand side by side—no matter our political party—to end this travesty#NoWarWithIran#StandWithTulsi
Trump admits he “left troops in Syria to take the oil,” and then says “we have the oil.” If this isn’t reverse-Christianity, what is?
We were unsuccessful in regime changing Syria, the last country that needed to be destabilized before taking out Iran for the Greater Israel Project, so then Trump figures we’ll just take the oil, which the Bible calls stealing.
Someone recently said Trump has broken all of the 10 commandments now, with his recent assassinations in Iraq (though he’s murdered others before in his military campaigns). Here he’s breaking “Thou shalt not steal,” and tells us about it on the war channel, Fox News.
U.S. intelligence documents released to a government watchdog confirms the suspicions that the United States and some of its so-called coalition partners had actually facilitated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) as an effective adversary against the government of the Syrian dictator President Bashar al-Assad. In addition, ISIS members were initially trained by members and contractors of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) at facilities in Jordan in 2012. The original goal was to weaken the Syrian government which had engaged in war crimes against their own people, according to a number of reports on Sunday. The non-profit, non-partisan Judicial Watch — a group known for its investigation of government corruption and abuse — had obtained more than 100 pages of classified documents from both the US Department of Defense and the State Department through a federal lawsuit.
… The CIA and Mossad created and funded ISIS, which they used to invade Syria, and then, when the jig was up and they had to pretend to be on the right side, they bombed a few Syrian cities back into the stone age, not to destroy ISIS, which fled well in advance with ample warning from their friends, but to make sure the Syrians had nothing left. The infrastructure of Raqqa is non existent, they’d be better off if it was just sand. That’s how Israel plays the game. Time for the Western voters to wake up and realize who has them by the tail.
It’s horrible what the US and Israel have done to Syria covertly through ISIS, and then openly push the propaganda created by the “White Helmets,” who staged the fake chemical attacks. Assad is a wonderful, gentle leader who had brought Syria into near first world status with religious freedom. And TalmudVision, including Fox News mocks him, and won’t air this interview.
And why don’t most “Christians” in America care, when Jesus said: “Blessed are the *peacemakers*, for they shall be called the *children of God*.”
Most “Christians” in America aren’t real Christians. Real Christians must be peacemakers according to what Jesus said in Matthew 5, quoted above.
NOTE: True story; though, the originating country isn’t stated. We know that the U.S., Israel and Saudi Arabia support the terrorist opposition in Syria, and only the U.S. or Israel has the sophistication to create these. Both of the Syrian ambassador’s statements are filmed and are shown in this TruNews report.
TruNews also shows a clip of what looks like giant ISIS soldiers escorting Coptic Christians in Libya just prior to execution in 2/2005. Rick Wiles calls these out as the Nephilim of Genesis 6 and “after that.”
Syrian ambassador to the UN, Bashar Jaafari reported twice in statements at the UN on 2018 and 2016 that genetically modified soldiers were committing crimes in Syria:
“And I say to all those who exported to us armed, moderate, genetically modified opposition….” – Bashar Jaafari speaking through an interpreter at the UN on 4/9/18
“Unfortunately, some member states and the Security Council and the mainstream media continue to defend and support the genetically modified, armed Syrian opposition, moderate by definition, while turning a blind eye to the crimes committed by them.” – Bashar Jaafari speaking in English on at the UN on 12/19/16
Tulsi’s forthrightness during Tuesday’s debate about our ‘regime-change’ goal in our post-9/11 wars seems to have emboldened Rand Paul to speak more straightforwardly as well — which frustrates Jake Tapper of CNN.
3:55 “I would say that the majority of leadership on the Republican and the Democrat side are interventionists. … Republicans and Democrats are unified in being in support of war, support of intervention, and support of never going home.”
5:30 “The U.S. has been preventing any kind of discussion, because it’s been the policy of the war caucus to have Assad removed. This is the John Bolton; this is the Lindsey Graham move. They believe in regime change. They want to get rid of Assad. But also, the Hillary Clinton group wants this too. So it’s really left and right saying we have to have regime change.
