American, Israeli And Jordanian Troops And CIA Agents Have Entered Syria, Le Figaro Reports
We have yet to see secondary confirmation of the following breaking news from the second largest French newspaper, Le Figaro, but if accurate, it means the Nobel Peace Prize winning president has just engaged in yet another unsanctioned by Congress war.
From Le Figaro:
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.
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. A second would have joined the 19. According to military sources, the Americans, who do not want to put troops on the Syrian soil are arming rebels in part controlled by radical Islamists, quietly for several months in a training camp set up at the Jordanian border- Syrian fighters FSA, the Free Syrian Army are handpicked.
According to this expert on the region, the idea proposed by Washington would be the possible establishment of a buffer zone from the south of Syria, or even a no-fly zone, which would cause opponents safely until the balance of power changes. This is the reason why the United States has deployed Patriot batteries and F16 in late June in Jordan.
Translated. Forget Israeli and Jordanian commandos working together. This was an American operation. On the 17th and 19th of August some 600 American trained and armed commandos entered Syria and and on August 21, they shot missiles with nerve gas heads on 11 rebel sites. This gave Obama the pretext to demand the bombing of Syria to "teach Assad a lesson." What the real objective was the annihilation of Israel.
This ghastly motive is shockingly revealed in a Wikileak:
INSIGHT - military intervention in Syria, post withdrawal status of forces
Released on 2012-03-06 07:00 GMT
A few points I wanted to highlight from meetings today --
I spent most of the afternoon at the Pentagon with the USAF strategic studies group - guys who spend their time trying to understand and explain to the USAF chief the big picture in areas where they're operating in. It was just myself and four other guys at the Lieutenant Colonel level, including one French and one British representative who are liaising with the US currently out of DC.
I kept pressing on the question of what these SOF teams would be working toward, and whether this would lead to an eventual air camapign to give a Syrian rebel group cover. They pretty quickly distanced themselves from that idea, saying that the idea 'hypothetically' is to commit guerrilla attacks, assassination campaigns, try to break the back of the Alawite forces, elicit collapse from within. There wouldn't be a need for air cover, and they wouldn't expect these Syrian rebels to be marching in columns anyway.
They emphasized how the air campaign in Syria makes Libya look like a piece of cake. Syrian air defenses are a lot more robust and are much denser, esp around Damascus and on the borders with Israel, Turkey. They are most worried about mobile air defenses, particularly the SA-17s that they've been getting recently. It's still a doable mission, it's just not an easy one.
The main base they would use is Cyprus, hands down. Brits and French would fly out of there. They kept stressing how much is stored at Cyprus and how much recce comes out of there. The group was split on whether Turkey would be involved, but said Turkey would be pretty critical to the mission to base stuff out of there. Even if Turkey had a poltiical problem with Cyprus, they said there is no way the Brits and the French wouldn't use Cyprus as their main air force base. Air Force Intel guy seems pretty convinced that the Turks won't participate(he seemed pretty pissed at them.)
There still seems to be a lot of confusion over what a military intervention involving an air campaign would be designed to achieve. It isn't clear cut for them geographically like in Libya, and you can't just create an NFZ over Homs, Hama region. This would entail a countrywide SEAD campaign lasting the duration of the war. They dont' believe air intervention would happen unless there was enough media attention on a massacre, like the Ghadafi move against Benghazi. They think the US would have a high tolerance for killings as long as it doesn't reach that very public stage. Theyre also questiioning the skills of the Syrian forces that are operating the country's air defenses currently and how signfiicant the Iranian presence is there. Air Force Intel guy is most obsessed with the challenge of taking out Syria's ballistic missile capabilities and chem weapons. With Israel right there and the regime facing an existential crisis, he sees that as a major complication to any military intervention.
Needless to say, mainstream sources as widely divergent as The New Yorker, Stratcor and Washington Post have all confirmed the American presence in Jordan, since at least June, and by all standards they agree this is an illegal pot-stirring operation. And Syria has been upfront what its reaction to an attack by B-2s, B-52s and Navy Tomahawk missiles would be:

Judge Andrew Napolitano, the author of “,” joined Glenn Beck on The Glenn Beck Program Wednesday to discuss the legal issues surrounding the conflict in Syria, the NSA spying scandal, and libertarianism.
Beck began by playing “devil’s advocate” on Syria, asking solemnly, “what about the children?”
“The lynchpin for American involvement in a foreign war is not revulsion at what’s happening,” Napolitano replied firmly. “The lynchpin for American involvement in a foreign war is, will our freedom and security be affected if we don’t get involved? Answer: no. How could we possibly be affected by a war 6,700 miles from here?”
Napolitano proceeded to lay out four circumstances under which the American military can legally get involved in a foreign war, based on “the treaties we’ve signed and the body of international law to which we agree.”
1) “When we’ve been attacked. Hasn’t happened, we haven’t been attacked by Syria.”
2) “When we are about to be attacked. When the enemy’s at the gates, we don’t have to wait for them to fire the first bullet. When an attack is imminent… Not the case with Syria.”
3) “When we’ve been invited into the country of an ally that’s been attacked…Doesn’t apply for Syria.”
4) “When a country has violated an international norm to which it has agreed, and the U.N. has authorized us to do it.”
Some might say the use of chemical weapons has violated an “international norm,” but Napolitano pointed out that Syria didn’t sign the treaty against the use of chemical weapons.
He then went a step further: “Who’s used chemical weapons on their own people? How far are we from Waco, Texas, where federal agents used chemical weapons to murder 76 Americans in 1993, in the Clinton administration? Can you imagine if China or Russia wanted to bomb us to punish us for what we did at the time?” We also use Agent Orange in Vietnam and depleted uranium in Iraq.
Beck then asked Napolitano whether any of what is happening constitutes treason, saying “common sense” tells him fighting on the same side as Al-Qaeda certainly seems like aiding and abetting the enemy.
“[Treason] would be providing material assistance to an organization that is waging war, or a state that is waging war against you,” Napolitano began. “The government prosecutes people for providing material assistance to terrorist organizations – that’s life in prison. How could the government itself provide material assistance to a terrorist organization?”
When Beck pointed out that the administration would argue they’re not providing assistance to Al-Qaeda, they’re providing assistance to “the good guys,” Napolitano noted that if Assad falls, Al-Qaeda will kill all those “good guys” who stand in their way, take their weapons, and take control.
“If we do anything to help Al-Qaeda by harming Bashar al-Assad, by weakening him, by degrading him, by leveling the playing field of the battlefield, as John McCain said, that will be the moral equivalent of providing aid and comfort to the enemy, that is known as treason,” Napolitano said. “And if we bomb a country, if we enter the country militarily absent those four conditions we just talked about, the president could be charged for a war crime for which there is no statute of limitations.”
Beck asked if the judge would “press for treason” if President Obama decides to strike Syria, and if he believes we should impeach him?
“Yes, I believe we should impeach him for the NSA spying alone,” Napolitano responded without hesitation. “It is the most massive, organized, systematic violation of expressly articulated Constitutional freedoms in the history of the United States, again, putting aside the Civil War era. Treason would be more difficult. Why? A treason charge would have to be brought by a federal prosecutor, which he controls.”
We are not only less safe as a result of surveillance programs, Napolitano argued, we are also less free.
He referenced a line from a former head of the KGB, “Show me the man, and I’ll show you the crime.”
“There are 4,400 federal crimes…You can find a criminal act to apply to almost anyone,” he said. “The reason that that doesn’t happen is because we have areas of human behavior immune from government surveillance…but when the government can watch everything we do, and listen to everything we say it will, if it wants to… find something you did or said that violates one of those 4,400 crimes and then ruin you with a prosecution, and really ruin you with a conviction.”
“Freedom requires breathing room,” he concluded, and Beck added that it also needs morality.
In May, Turkish anti-terror police confiscated a two-kilogram cylinder of sarin gas from members of the Jabhat al-Nusra Front based in Southern Turkey near the Syrian border, according to a classified report obtained by WND.
The National Ground Intelligence Center report states that Al-Qaeda in Iraq produced the sarin gas and then shipped it to the al-Nusra Front for use in Syria, a report in the InfoWars said.
Two months prior to the confiscation, 26 people and Syrian government forces died from exposure to sarin gas delivered in a rocket attack on Aleppo, a city in the northwestern region of Syria near the Turkish border.
“The rocket came from a place controlled by the terrorists and which is located close to the Turkish territory,” according to a Syrian government statement in response to the attack. “One can assume that the weapon came from Turkey.”
The document also describes the sarin seized in Turkey as not being military grade but rather a “kitchen variety,” which corresponds to the sarin gas used in the Aug. 21 chemical attack near Damascus, according to Dr. Yossef Bodansky, a top terrorism expert.
Bodansky said that unlike military grade sarin, the sarin used in the Damascus attack did not accumulate around the victims’ hair and clothing.
If it did, said Bodansky, the sarin molecules would have detached from the victims and “killed or injured the first responders who touched the victims’ bodies without protective clothes … and masks.”
Yet there were no reported casualties among the first respondents to the attack, none of whom were wearing adequate protective gear.
High-level US intelligence officials reinforce Bodansky’s conclusion, stating that they are not convinced that the Aug. 21 chemical attack was carried out per Assad’s orders or that it was even carried out by syrian government.
They are not even sure that Assad even knew about the attack beforehand.
Intercepted Syrian military communications reveal that after the Aug. 21 attack, the Syrian general staff were in a complete panic thinking that their 155th Brigade launched an unauthorized chemical attack in defiance of prior orders not to do so.
This led to Syrian intelligence interrogating the major in charge of the brigade for three days, who adamantly denied firing any missiles and encouraged the general staff to count his weapons inventory.
All of the brigade’s missiles were accounted for.
Pierre Piccinin da Prata, a Belgium writer who was kidnapped by the al-Nursa Front, said that during his captivity he overheard his rebel captors admit that they carried out the Aug. 21 chemical attack as a false flag in order to lure the United States into the conflict to help Al-Qaeda topple Assad.
While the Obama administration continues to push our military into entering Syria as “al-Qaeda’s air force,” fighting alongside extremists recruited and armed by the CIA, the evidence strongly points to the al-Nusra Front, designated by the US as a terrorist organization, as responsible for the Aug. 21 chemical attack.
|How our Milky Way Galaxy might look from outside|
New research suggests that, as seen from the outside, the central bulge of our Milky Way galaxy shows up as a peanut-shaped glowing ball of stars, while the spiral arms and their associated dust clouds form a narrow band.
One of the most important and massive parts of the galaxy is the galactic bulge. This huge central cloud of about 10,000 million stars spans thousands of light-years, but its structure and origin are not well understood. Why not, when it’s our home galaxy? Because, from our vantage point from within the galactic disk, our view of this central region — at about 27,000 light-years’ distance — is heavily obscured by dense clouds of gas and dust.
Astronomers can only obtain a good view of the bulge by observing longer wavelength light, such as infrared radiation, which can penetrate the dust clouds. What an amazing universe our God created.

Friends, below is the letter President Putin of Russia wrote to the American people. I found it interesting that in the last sentence he mentioned God. I found that refreshing. I never thought I would never see the day when I agreed in substance with a Russian President.
MOSCOW — RECENT events surrounding Syria have prompted me to speak directly to the American people and their political lea
ders. It is important to do so at a time of insufficient communication between our societies.
ders. It is important to do so at a time of insufficient communication between our societies.
Relations between us have passed through different stages. We stood against each other during the cold war. But we were also allies once, and defeated the Nazis together. The universal international organization — the United Nations — was then established to prevent such devastation from ever happening again.
The United Nations’ founders understood that decisions affecting war and peace should happen only by consensus, and with America’s consent the veto by Security Council permanent members was enshrined in the United Nations Charter. The profound wisdom of this has underpinned the stability of international relations for decades.
No one wants the United Nations to suffer the fate of the League of Nations, which collapsed because it lacked real leverage. This is possible if influential countries bypass the United Nations and take military action without Security Council authorization.
The potential strike by the United States against Syria, despite strong opposition from many countries and major political and religious leaders, including the pope, will result in more innocent victims and escalation, potentially spreading the conflict far beyond Syria’s borders. A strike would increase violence and unleash a new wave of terrorism. It could undermine multilateral efforts to resolve the Iranian nuclear problem and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and further destabilize the Middle East and North Africa. It could throw the entire system of international law and order out of balance.
Syria is not witnessing a battle for democracy, but an armed conflict between government and opposition in a multireligious country. There are few champions of democracy in Syria. But there are more than enough Qaeda fighters and extremists of all stripes battling the government. The United States State Department has designated Al Nusra Front and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, fighting with the opposition, as terrorist organizations. This internal conflict, fueled by foreign weapons supplied to the opposition, is one of the bloodiest in the world.
Mercenaries from Arab countries fighting there, and hundreds of militants from Western countries and even Russia, are an issue of our deep concern. Might they not return to our countries with experience acquired in Syria? (Yes, they will we have seen this repeatedly with al Qaeda and other terrorists.) After all, after fighting in Libya, extremists moved on to Mali. This threatens us all.
From the outset, Russia has advocated peaceful dialogue enabling Syrians to develop a compromise plan for their own future. We are not protecting the Syrian government, but international law. We need to use the United Nations Security Council and believe that preserving law and order in today’s complex and turbulent world is one of the few ways to keep international relations from sliding into chaos. The law is still the law, and we must follow it whether we like it or not. Under current international law, force is permitted only in self-defense or by the decision of the Security Council. Anything else is unacceptable under the United Nations Charter and would constitute an act of aggression.
No one doubts that poison gas was used in Syria. But there is every reason to believe it was used not by the Syrian Army, but by opposition forces, to provoke intervention by their powerful foreign patrons, who would be siding with the fundamentalists. Reports that militants are preparing another attack — this time against Israel — cannot be ignored.
It is alarming that military intervention in internal conflicts in foreign countries has become commonplace for the United States. Is it in America’s long-term interest? I doubt it. Millions around the world increasingly see America not as a model of democracy but as relying solely on brute force, cobbling coalitions together under the slogan “you’re either with us or against us.”
But force has proved ineffective and pointless. Afghanistan is reeling, and no one can say what will happen after international forces withdraw. Libya is divided into tribes and clans. In Iraq the civil war continues, with dozens killed each day. In the United States, many draw an analogy between Iraq and Syria, and ask why their government would want to repeat recent mistakes.
No matter how targeted the strikes or how sophisticated the weapons, civilian casualties are inevitable, including the elderly and children, whom the strikes are meant to protect.
The world reacts by asking: if you cannot count on international law, then you must find other ways to ensure your security. Thus a growing number of countries seek to acquire weapons of mass destruction. This is logical: if you have the bomb, no one will touch you. We are left with talk of the need to strengthen nonproliferation, when in reality this is being eroded.
We must stop using the language of force and return to the path of civilized diplomatic and political settlement.
A new opportunity to avoid military action has emerged in the past few days. The United States, Russia and all members of the international community must take advantage of the Syrian government’s willingness to place its chemical arsenal under international control for subsequent destruction. Judging by the statements of President Obama, the United States sees this as an alternative to military action.
I welcome the president’s interest in continuing the dialogue with Russia on Syria. We must work together to keep this hope alive, as we agreed to at the Group of 8 meeting in Lough Erne in Northern Ireland in June, and steer the discussion back toward negotiations.
If we can avoid force against Syria, this will improve the atmosphere in international affairs and strengthen mutual trust. It will be our shared success and open the door to cooperation on other critical issues.
My working and personal relationship with President Obama is marked by growing trust. I appreciate this. I carefully studied his address to the nation on Tuesday. And I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.” It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.
Vladimir V. Putin is the president of Russia.
Friends, NASA has announced that the first human-made object left the confines of our solar system a year ago. It is now traveling beyond the , or sphere of our sun’s influence. NASA made the announcement on September 12, 2013 that the Voyager 1 spacecraft – launched from Earth in 1977 – has now entered interstellar space. NASA also released this video, in which the sounds of interstellar space can be heard. In fact, the science team used these sounds to help determine the density of space through which Voyager 1 is now passing. Personally, I believe that some day in the future we will unravel these sounds and static and find that it is God's beautiful music being played in His universe.
