9/9/ World pressure, Russian-Syrian proposal; US tests limits of power

digest commentary:
Syria-Iran-middle east and everywhere across the globe is fundamentally about US salvaging US global supremacy by any and all means necessary
The US state, as the NYT says in diplomatic speak, is 'testing' the limits of its world dominant class dictatorship. Presidents know their job, is doing, in our names, without limits, whatever US capital needs to preserve its global rule, expanding state power as needed, without limits, to fulfill that US national security agenda.
Obama, smooth, brilliant, silver-tongued Black man, was hired to recoup US from massive blowback and resistance against its overtly racist bush 'neocon' grab-it-all-now tactics.
'Well-primed' to lead the new world order', Kissinger and Brzezinski said. The new friendly-face-facist book-cover expanded the US global war of terror and in doing so, starkly proved once more that presidents, electoral figureheads and 'experts' are hired to serve, not change, finnce capital's predatory, barbaric agenda.
Defeated in its state terrorist 'efforts' worldwide, the US, more now mistrusted and hated in its 'homeland' as well as the rest of world, more than ever, strategically severely weakened, thus increasingly vulnerable. Time for world to exert our resistance and strategic political strength.

Members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee reached an agreement late Tuesday on the wording of a new resolution authorizing U.S. military force against the Syrian government. The resolution permits up to 60 days of military action against Syrian President al-Assad's government and gives US President Obama the option to extend military operations by 30 days pending congressional notification, according to Senate aides.

Feb. 2009 Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee John Kerry, President Bashar al-Assad, and their wives, Teresa Heinz and Asma al-Assad, the First Lady of Syria,dining in Damascus. According to The Daily Telegraph, Mr. Kerry met with Mr Assad at least six times,... in a press conference he stated: “President Barack Obama's administration considers Syria a key player in Washington's efforts to revive the stalled Middle East peace process.Syria is an essential player in bringing peace and stability to the region".
Aug. 2013, Secretary of State Kerry, pushing for a military strike to 'punish' Syria accused of a suspected chemical attack, called President Assad a "thug", and "today's Hitler"

8/30 US Proxy Provides "Proof" Isolated US Needs on the Road to Tehran

The CIA, Qatar, and the creation of Jabhat al Nusra,
5/17/13, Phil Greaves, http://notthemsmdotcom.wordpress.com
.A fully fledged, malleable proxy promoting subversion, sectarian division, and chaos to gain the US objective of the destruction of the Syrian state, removing a key ally of Iran and resistance to western hegemony in the Middle East. When extremism and brutality are too exposed to allow overt support, US designates them “terrorists”, then a change of clothes, they become the “FSA”.

US has basically licensed all Syrian armed groups to engage in war crimes...all an armed group has to do... is fly the flag of al Nusrah. That is all it takes. So an armed group belonging to the Free Syrian Army umbrella can engage in war crime, then next day issue a condemnation. It is an unlimited license for war crimes."

8/28 After Defeat Next Desperate Move for US Regional Stability & Security

President al-Assad: Syria a sovereign state will never become a western puppet state, we will fight terrorism and freely build relationships...

Next step in its plan, US will attempt to disarm and destroy Syria as a sovereign nation for US 'nation building'.
The US state-terrorist proxy war, stunningly conquered by Syrian support for their government, is an intolerable defeat for US regional and global domination strategy. It will abandon 'regime change', using an 'option' it desperately needs for relatively permanent imperialist 'stability & security'. The tactical m.o. as always divide to conquer, goes to another level of 'arab spring' manufactured 'sectarian strife', to create a 'failed state' and pretext for 'humanitarian intervention' to disarm and destroy the nation of Syria for US 'nation building'.

"It is my belief that the side we choose must be ready to promote their interests and ours when the balance shifts in their favor. Today, they are not." This dour assessment from Dempsey comes as Syrian rebel groups made fresh claims Wednesday that government forces loyal to Assad carried out a "poisonous gas" attack near the capital Damascus that has left hundreds dead.

In In 1978, Zbigniew Brzezinski, major US imperialist architect and strategist, and Carter's National Security Advisor, now Obama 'counselor', wrote : “An arc of crisis nations stretch across the southern flank of the Soviet Union from the Indian subcontinent to Turkey, and southward through the Arabian Peninsula to the Horn of Africa... the center of gravity of this arc is Iran...a region of vital importance to us...could well be filled by elements hostile to our values and sympathetic to our adversaries.” Brzezinski mobilized an 'arc of Islam' to defeat the Soviet Union, then US #1 geopolitical rival. To 'give the Soviet Union its Vietnam', with help of Pakistan's Intelligence (ISI) he organized, armed and trained Mujahedeen, (now 'al-qaeda') in Afghanistan under Bin Laden, creating an 'Arc of Crisis' for US, with the 'AQ' military-intelligence assets database, still serving the USNATO failing imperialist global domination agenda.

In 1997 Brzezinski wrote: “Eurasia is the world’s axial supercontinent. A power that dominates Eurasia would exercise decisive influence over two of the world’s three most economically productive regions, Western Europe and East Asia. A glance at the map also suggests that a country dominant in Eurasia would almost automatically control the Middle East and Africa. With Eurasia now serving as the decisive geopolitical chessboard...the distribution of power on the Eurasian landmass will be of decisive importance to America’s global primacy and historical legacy.” Zbigniew Brzezinski, “A Geostrategy for Eurasia,” Foreign Affairs, September/October 1997.

Japan observed a minute of silence Tuesday to mark the 68th anniversary of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima. Survivors and relatives of victims were among 50,000 people gathered at a peace park in Hiroshima for a somber ceremony. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told the crowd Japan has a unique responsibility to push for the end of nuclear weapons....About 140,000 were killed following the U.S. bombing of Hiroshima August 6, 1945. Three days later, U.S. planes dropped a nuclear bomb on Nagasaki, killing about 70,000 more. The U.S. and its allies argue the bombings were necessary and helped save lives by convincing Japan to surrender, bringing a quicker end to World War II....

NSA XKeyscore program collects 'nearly everything user does on the internet'

• XKeyscore 'widest-reaching' sweep of online data • NSA analysts require no prior search authorisation • Collects IPs, emails, social media activity, searches and browsing history

A top secret National Security Agency program allows analysts to search with no prior authorization through vast databases containing emails, online chats and the browsing histories of millions of individuals, according to documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden. The NSA boasts in training materials that the program called XKeyscore, is its "widest-reaching" system for developing intelligence from the internet. These latest revelations will add to the intense debate around NSA surveillance programs. They come as senior intelligence officials testify to the Senate judiciary committee Wednesday, releasing classified documents in response to the Guardian's earlier stories on bulk collection of phone records and Fisa surveillance court oversight.

A December 2012 document slide, "plug-ins", describes searchable fields of information, includes "every email address seen in a session by both username and domain", "every phone number seen in a session (address book entries or signature block)" and user activity--"webmail and chat activity to include username, buddylist, machine specific cookies etc"....
