Vestens politik i post-11 september-tiden. Glemt er konsekvenserne både på kort sigt og på lang.

Folk som Nasser Khader og hans fanatiske demokratisme glemmer både sandsynligheden for succes (meget lav til næsten nul når udlændinge står for forandringer) og hvilken pris de lokale betaler for idealistisk fantasterier.

It’s Time for America to Reckon With the Staggering Death Toll of the Post-9/11 Wars

Citer:
But even as the U.S. government evades responsibility for the human cost of its overseas endeavors, some researchers are determined to keep count.

Brown University’s Costs of War Project this month released a new estimate of the total death toll from the U.S. wars in three countries: Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. The numbers, while conservatively estimated, are staggering. Brown’s researchers estimate that at least 480,000 people have been directly killed by violence over the course of these conflicts, more than 244,000 of them civilians. In addition to those killed by direct acts violence, the number of indirect deaths — those resulting from disease, displacement, and the loss of critical infrastructure — is believed to be several times higher, running into the millions.

Citer:
Studies like the one published by Brown University add to a steadily growing body of scholarship showing the horrifying human costs of the wars. The media has also made some significant contributions to improving public awareness. Journalists Anand Gopal and Azmat Khan, for example, published a groundbreaking New York Times report last year on civilian casualties in Iraq. Their reporting showed the actual death rate to be a stunning 31 times higher than the one officially reported by the U.S. military. It can hardly be said now that the truth isn’t out there. But some experts say that it isn’t surprising that this information has failed to translate into public action.

Det af amerikanerne skabte flygtningeproblem giver helt nye takter i Europas grænsebeskyttelse. Er det ikke tid til at være ærlige og droppe muligheden for asyl for ikke-europæere?

Greece: Violence Against Asylum Seekers at Border: Human Rights Watch


Citer:
Human Rights Watch also interviewed five Turkish residents of border villages who described how between February 28 and March 6 they had helped care for large groups of people who returned injured and almost naked from Greece saying that Greek security forces had beaten, robbed, stripped, and deported them.

In one case, an interviewee described Greek security forces sexually assaulting his wife when they crossed the border. “They [Greek security forces] tried to search my wife and touched her breasts,” said a Syrian man who was travelling with his wife and children. “Then they tried to take off her headscarf and her trousers. When I tried to stop them, they beat me really badly with their fists, feet, a heavy plastic rod, and a metal stick. They hit my 2-year-old daughter with a heavy plastic stick on the head so that she still has a bruise.” Human Rights Watch saw a bruise underneath the girl’s hair.

In most cases, the interviewees, said that armed men stripped them down to their underwear, including some women, and forced them across the Evros river back to Turkey. Many said that they were passed between various groups, suggesting coordination between police or soldiers and the unidentified men.

En ny måde at skabe kaos på i Syrien.


US ‘Caesar Act' sanctions could devastate Syria’s flatlining economy


Citer:
Julien Barnes-Dacey, director of the Middle East and North Africa Programme at the European Council on Foreign Relations, said: “Assad is absolutely the prime driver of Syria’s ongoing collapse. [But] the US position now appears to be fundamentally driven by great power politics and the goal of ensuring that Russia and Iran can’t claim a win.

“My fear is that Caesar will achieve the exact opposite of its stated goals, fuelling the worst impulses of the Syrian regime and wider conflict. The US self-declared maximum pressure campaign aims to bring the regime to its knees and force its backers to concede defeat but the regime knows how to brutally hold onto power and it’s clear that its key backers aren’t for moving.

“The Syrian people have been brutalised for a decade now and the country is devastated by conflict but we appear to be staring into the precipice of a dangerous new stage of the conflict … which risks a devastating new unravelling.”

Nok et skud for boven for international lov. Vi er på vej tilbage til "de gode gamle" dage. Hvor de stærke tog hvad de havde lyst til.

USA er den største trussel for Europas fremtid. Besættelse af et andet lands territorium uden FN mandat. Og nu udplyndring af dets ressourcer. Se Europas fremtid når de afrikanske stormagter regerer.

En glimrende analyse af syrisk politisk kultur.

Værd at have i mente når man ved at revolutioner sjældent ændre politisk kultur.


Citer:
Upon his death in 2000, Hafez al-Assad’s son Bashar took over as president of Syria. With Bashar still in power, the Assads have run the country for 50 years. The family has governed for most of the independence period, as the pre-Assad era lasted only 24 years from independence in 1946 to Hafez’s coup in 1970. Their rule has not been without internal threat, most notably during the Muslim Brotherhood uprising of the late 1970s and early 1980s, and of course the civil war that started in 2011 and which will likely continue for the foreseeable future. Nonetheless, the Assads remain in power. Hafez built a state and regime resistant to these internal and external threats, even if it meant destroying much of the country in the process. The Assads have won the zero-sum game. But a close look at Syrian politics since 2011 shows that their opponents, almost without exception, have been playing by the same rules.

Joe Biden viser at ang. Syrien var en bedre politiker end resten af Obama administrationen.


Joe Biden On Syria: What Would He Do? : National Interest



Citer:
While it’s tempting to push Biden into the interventionist camp that continues to dominate Washington’s foreign policy establishment, the former veep was actually one of the Obama administration’s leading skeptics about what the United States could do in Syria—and indeed, whether the U.S. should do much of anything at all short of providing humanitarian aid.
...
Biden’s skepticism didn’t dissipate with time, even as the war got bloodier. In 2014, in what commentators referred to as a “gaffe,” the vice president stated that there was no such thing as a “moderate middle” in the Syrian civil war and that Washington’s partners in the Middle East have actually worsened the situation by sending arms and supplies to extremist groups on the ground. "They were so determined to take down Assad, and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war, what did they do,” Biden asked during a speech at Harvard’s Kennedy School. "They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad—except that the people who were being supplied, [they] were al-Nusra, and al-Qaeda, and the extremist elements of jihadis who were coming from other parts of the world.”

Biden would later go on to apologize to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for his remarks, but history has largely proven the vice president right.

Leaked docs expose massive Syria propaganda operation waged by Western govt contractors and media




Citer:
Leaked documents show how UK government contractors developed an advanced infrastructure of propaganda to stimulate support in the West for Syria’s political and armed opposition.

Virtually every aspect of the Syrian opposition was cultivated and marketed by Western government-backed public relations firms, from their political narratives to their branding, from what they said to where they said it.
...
Western government contractor ARK plays the media like the fiddle

One of the main British government contractors behind the Syria regime-change scheme was called ARK (Analysis Research Knowledge).

ARK FZC is based in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. It brands itself as a humanitarian NGO, claiming it “was created in order to assist the most vulnerable,” by establishing a “social enterprise,  empowering local communities through the provision of agile and sustainable interventions to create greater stability, opportunity and hope for the future.”

In reality ARK is an intelligence cutout that functions as an arm of Western interventionism.

In a leaked document it filed with the British government, ARK said its “focus since 2012 has been delivering highly effective, politically-and conflict-sensitive Syria programming for the governments of the United Kingdom, United States, Denmark, Canada, Japan and the European Union.”
Citer:
Western contractor ARK cultivates White Helmets “to keep Syria in the news”

The Western contractor ARK was a central force in launching the White Helmets operation.

The leaked documents show ARK ran the Twitter and Facebook pages of Syria Civil Defense, known more commonly as the White Helmets.

ARK took credit for developing “an internationally-focused communications campaign designed to raise global awareness of the (White Helmets) teams and their life saving work.”

ARK also facilitated communications between the White Helmets and The Syria Campaign, a PR firm run out of London and New York that helped popularize the White Helmets in the United States.
