War Looms: Hundreds of American Troops and CIA Operatives Have Entered Syria

"God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid." Isaiah 12:2

Note from Berit:  In mid-June, Andy and I were eating in a restaurant in a small midwestern town. The waitress was very friendly, and she told us that a previous customer -- the mother of a young soldier -- had shared her deep concern for her son who was headed for the Syrian border and feared what lay ahead. In the following weeks we sought more information, but the news media offered no real answers. This was clearly a secretive venture for our President, who doesn't seem to mind supporting the Syrian rebels and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Remember, the mainstream media is not a reliable source of information!

If the following message from France’s second largest newspaper Le Figaro is accurate, then we must assume that war is now a foregone conclusion. [Le Figaro's translation from French to English is still a bit confusing]

"According to our information, the regime’s opponents, supervised by Jordanian, Israeli and American commandos moving towards Damascus since mid-August. This attack could explain the possible use of the Syrian president to chemical weapons. [See the other side of this issue in the box below]

"According to information obtained by Le Figaro, the first trained in guerrilla warfare by the Americans in Jordan Syrian troops reportedly entered into action since mid-August in southern Syria, in the region of Deraa. A first group of 300 men, probably supported by Israeli and Jordanian commandos, as well as men of the CIA, had crossed the border on August 17..."

Chemical Weapons Victim Footage Appears “Set-Up”: "...the video footage looked suspect. 'There are, within some of the videos, examples which seem a little hyper-real... as if they’ve been set up. ...Some of the people with foaming, the foam seems to be too white, too pure, and not consistent with the sort of internal injury you might expect to see.... 'Why would the Assad government, which has recently been retaking ground from the rebels, carry out a chemical attack while UN weapons inspectors are in the country? [Could it be the work of US supported rebels -- not Assad?  See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f72BwoQmzxA]

Video Footage of ‘Chemical Weapons Attack’ Uploaded Before it Happened? "Hundreds of videos showing apparent victims of a chemical weapons attack in Syria were uploaded to YouTube on August 20, a day before media reports say the attack actually happened, prompting Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokesman to assert the incident was a 'pre-planned' provocation staged by rebels.

      "As PBS reports, 'At around 3 a.m. (on August 21), patients started streaming in from neighborhoods in suburban Damascus... following the alleged chemical weapons attack. However, a playlist of videos entitled ‘Alleged Chemical Attack in Eastern Ghouta, August 21, 2013‘ contains 159 videos – every one of which was uploaded to YouTube on August 20."

Note from Berit: I wonder if the supposed "chemical attack" was simply a means to create a crisis that would justify full-fledged war against Syria. It reminds me of the strategies used in the last century to push America into both World War I and WW2. See Trusting God as Freedom Fades

What’s equally as intriguing as boots on the ground inside of the Syrian border is the fact that these troops and intelligence officers reportedly made their way into the country on August 17th, fully four days before reports and images surfaced showing hundreds of men, women and children killed by a chemical weapons attack allegedly at the hands of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The purported attack, which some experts argue was a set-up, left even the pacifist government of France calling for military intervention. Furthermore, should UN investigators, who conveniently happen to be in-country investigating possible chemical weapons stockpiles, confirm that the attack did take place, then we can expect armed military confrontation in the middle east once again.

Of interest is also the fact the NASDAQ stock market exchange was halted today due to what NASDAQ officials call a technical glitch. Within hours of the ‘glitch’ cyber security experts suggested that this was no accident, but rather, a hack attack originating from the “hacking collective” known as the Cyber Fighters of Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, an Iranian backed organization.

Earlier this week President Obama met with the heads of the Federal Reserve, the SEC, the FDIC and several other agencies responsible for monitoring and implementing U.S. financial, economic and monetary policy, indicating that there could be a serious crisis unfolding behind the scenes of our financial system. This comes on the heels of the Federal Reserve claiming that they would begin to “taper” the stimulus, a move that would likely send massive shock waves through domestic and global stock markets.

...it’s hard to ignore the fact that the US financial system is potentially on the brink of a massive re-collapse, while the Obama administration is actively engaging Syria in what we can only conclude will lead to a broader conflict in the middle east.

Throughout history governments have deflected blame for economic disasters by turning their efforts to a far off enemy and going to war. It’s certainly no accident and it’s a forecast that contrarian observers have made repeatedly as the global economic crisis deepened.

Is this what we’re seeing play out right now?

If so, then the implications are far reaching, because anyone who thinks this is going to be another Iraq are kidding themselves. This time, the Russians and the Chinese have a stake in the game, and they too have been positioning pieces on the Grand Chessboard. Not only have the Russians already advised western nations that the Syrians will be armed with weapons never before seen in the middle east, but they have warned that any military confrontation in the region could potentially go nuclear.

The question then becomes: who were the Russians talking about? Syria doesn’t have nuclear weapons. Neither does Iran (at least not for a few more months if Israeli intelligence reports are to be believed).

But the United States, Israel, Russia and China do have nukes.

Thus, one can only conclude that the Russians were talking about a nuclear engagement between them… and us.

It’s a realistic possibility also put forth by survival specialist Joel Skousen in his documentary Strategic Relocation and a warning reiterated by a DHS Insider who claimed in June of 2013 that a World War was about to break out and would lead to the deaths of millions.

This is getting real folks. All signs point to a serious confrontation in our near future.

Syria: The horrific chemical weapons attack that probably wasn’t a chemical weapons attack (Graphic video): "A closer analysis, however, raises doubts and highlights the challenge of confirming whether the Syrian government — or anyone else — is using chemical weapons. ...experts say the spent canister found in Younes’ house and the symptoms displayed by the victims are inconsistent with a chemical weapon such as sarin gas, which is known to be in Syria’s arsenal. Sarin is typically delivered using artillery shells or spray tanks, not in the grenade-like device found in this Aleppo attack...

     "...in other countries in the Middle East where security forces used tear gas on protesters, witnesses reported seeing victims foam at the mouth, convulse and twitch — the same symptoms seen in the Syrian victims. ... While there were casualties in the Aleppo attack, most of the victims survived, which would not likely be the outcome of a sarin attack..."


Evidence Indicates that Syrian Government Did Not Launch a Chemical Weapon Attack Against Its People: "The last time the U.S. blamed the Syrian government for a chemical weapons attack, that claim was debunked. But is the claim that the Syrian government used chemical weapons against its people true this time?....

     AFP reports: “...In a real case, they would also be contaminated and would also be having symptoms.” John Hart, head of the Chemical and Biological Security Project at Stockholm International Peace Research Institute said he had not seen the telltale evidence in the eyes of the victims that would be compelling evidence of chemical weapons use. ....

     Haaretz reports: Western experts on chemical warfare who have examined at least part of the footage are skeptical that weapons-grade chemical substances were used..."
