SYRIA - a plea for peace: Denis J. Halliday et al

A Plea for Peace in Syria
LE MONDE – September 2, 2013
The drums of war are beating once more in the Middle East, this time with the possibility of an imminent attack on Syria, after the alleged use of chemical weapons by its government. It is precisely in times of crisis such as now that the case for peace can be made in the clearest and most obvious manner.

First of all, we have no proof that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons. Even if proofs were provided by Western governments, we have to remain skeptical, remembering the Tonkin Gulf incident and the Vietnam war, the incubator baby massacre in Kuwait and the first Gulf war, the Racak massacre and the Kosovo war, the Iraqi weapons of mass destruction and the second Gulf war, the threat of massacre in Benghazi and the Libyan war. All these justifications for previous wars were fabricated or dubious. We may also notice that evidence for the use of chemical weapons was provided to the U.S. by Israeli intelligence which is not exactly a neutral actor.

WALL STREET JOURNAL:US Claims Against Syria - There is no Evidence

CONFIRMED: US Claims Against Syria - There is no Evidence

By Tony Cartalucci August 28, 2013

The Wall Street Journal has confirmed what many suspected, that the West's so-called "evidence" of the latest alleged "chemical attacks" in Syria, pinned on the Syrian government are fabrications spun up from the West's own dubious intelligence agencies.

The Wall Street Journal reveals that the US is citing claims from Israel's Mossad intelligence agency fed to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), a repeat of the fabrications that led up to the Iraq War, the Libyan War, and have been used now for 3 years to justify continued support of extremists operating within and along Syria's borders.

Wall Street Journal's article, "U.S., Allies Prepare to Act as Syria Intelligence Mounts," states: 

One crucial piece of the emerging case came from Israeli spy services, which provided the Central Intelligence Agency with intelligence from inside an elite special Syrian unit that oversees Mr. Assad's chemical weapons, Arab diplomats said. The intelligence, which the CIA was able to verify, showed that certain types of chemical weapons were moved in advance to the same Damascus suburbs where the attack allegedly took place a week ago, Arab diplomats said.

Remember Iraq... Don't Attack Syria!

Date: 10 September 17:30 | Location: US Embassy Dublin 42 Elgin Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4

Given the recent developments and the forthcoming vote in the US congress on military intervention in Syria, this even has now been rescheduled for Tuesday, at the US embassy.

There will be further details posted but the date and time are now confirmed.

Regardless of what we think of the Assad regime and its crimes we should oppose this intervention which will only make matters worse and is only designed to further imperialist interests.

Please support this protest and spread the word. Invite your friends.

If you can't make it at 5.30, please join us after this time whenever you can make until 7PM

All welcome!
