US State Department Goes Wild In Attempts To Defend White Helmets From Russian & Assad 'Propaganda'

During a September 11th press briefing, Heather Nauert, US Department of State spokesperson, accused Russia and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad of spreading false accusations that endanger the White Helmets group.

She said that the Syrian and Russian governments create risk conditions for the White Helmets “rescue” group by spreading accusations of their “malign activities in Syria.”

“The Assad regime and Russia continue to falsely accuse the White Helmets through a massive disinformation campaign leaving its volunteers at significant risk,” she said. According to her the international community and the US continue supporting the White Helmets group, despite the Netherlands will discontinue funding for the group from December 2018.

Earlier in the day, Sputnik cited the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation which reported that “all the fake footage of “chemical attacks,” designed to facilitate the implication of Syrian government forces, is expected to be sent to different TV channels before the end of the day.”

“According to the information received from inhabitants of Idlib province, militants are now filming a staged provocation in the city of Jisr al-Shugur, where “chemical weapons” are depicted as being used by the Syrian army against civilians. The film crews of several Middle Eastern TV channels arrived in Jisr al-Shugur in the morning, as well as the regional affiliate of one of the main American television news networks,” the Reconciliation Center said.

Sputnik also cited the Russian military which added that the militants had brought two containers loaded with a chlorine-based toxic substance to Jisr al-Shughur to make the provocation seem “natural.”

“The plot envisages staged scenes showing ‘activists’ from the Civil Defense (“White Helmets”) ‘helping’ the residents of Jisr al-Shughur after the Syrian army allegedly used the so-called barrel bombs with poisonous substances,” the center said. According to the center, all videos of provocations shot in Jisr al-Shughur will be provided to broadcasters by end of the day, after being released on social media.

Later in the day, Syrian human rights activist Ammar Jamal reinforced the Reconciliation center’s claims. He told Sputnik that a group of 30 White Helmets members arrived from Turkey to the Syrian province of Idlib to organize a provocation by staging the use of chemical weapons.

The Russian Ministry of Defense warned about the forthcoming false flag provocation, which will involve a staged chlorine gas attack, on August 26. Later, the ministry said that the results of this provocation could be used by the Western coalition forces as an excuse to launch another missile strike against the Syrian government.

During the press briefing she also said that US Department of State will continue working closely with the Department of Defense to ensure the success of the final phase of Operation Roundup in Syria. “The State Department will continue to work closely with our Department of Defense colleagues to ensure the success of this operation,” Nauert told reporters.

A few days earlier, on September 9th, Anadolu Agency reported footage that showed “showed Russian and [Assad] regime jets targeting teams of the White Helmets while rescuing civilians in Syria’s northwestern Idlib province.” The video showed a team of the White Helmets extinguishing a fire that broke out after an airstrike in Khan Sheykhun. Anas Diab, a civil defense member, was injured while capturing the video and pleaded for help by others around him when another strike hit the area near him.

Turkey appears to also strongly support the White Helmets, with Anadolu Agency on September 6th posting a report claiming that the “rescue” group’s members are “Syria’s savior angels.” According to Anadolu Agency, until now, the group has rescued at least 115,000 civilians from the debris of regime and its supporter’s bombardments. The Turkish state outlet also reported that “the civil defense agency, which has proved the regime and its supporters’ attacks and crimes, have been exposed to their smear campaign recently.” Citing White Helmets’ director Raed Saleh said that their only aim in Syria was to help civilians and they had no connection with any military or political institutions since its establishment. ““We’ve proved their crimes, and we are targeted,” he was cited as saying.

At the same time, Middle East Eye, on September 11th, posted the article “White Helmets rescue: A cheap PR stunt for settler-colonialist regimes.” According to the outlet, Israel and Canada did not step up for humanitarian reasons, but rather to deflect attention from their ongoing abuses against indigenous peoples. According to Ahmad Moussa, the author of the article, Israel uses the White Helmets group “as a front to whitewash its reputation and deflect attention from the crimes it has been committing against Palestinians.”

Both Damascus and Moscow accused militants and the White Helmets non-governmental organization of staging several provocations involving chemical weapons to influence public opinion and justify foreign intervention in Syria. The White Helmets were also the ones who reported the chemical attack that led to the April 18th airstrikes by US and allies.

    Finding a way out of the war against Syria

    by Thierry Meyssan

    The White House is unable to extricate itself from the war in Syria. President Trump is hindered both by the self-proclaimed « stable state » (according to the anonymous op ed in the New York Times), which continues to pursue the Rumsfeld-Cebrowski strategy, and by the reactivated ambitions of his Israëli, French, British and Turkish allies. The logic of these interests could displace the war instead of resolving it.

    VOLTAIRE NETWORK | DAMASCUS (SYRIA) | 11 SEPTEMBER 2018

    عربي DEUTSCH ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΆ ESPAÑOL FRANÇAIS ITALIANO PORTUGUÊS РУССКИЙ TÜRKÇE

    Powerpoint extract from a conference given by Admiral Cebrowski at the Pentagon , on 23 July 2003. Left, in mauve, the zone in which the state structures have to be destroyed.

    Although the White House and Russia have agreed to end the proxy war fought by jihadists in Syria, peace is a long time coming. Why?

    Why is there a war against Syria?

    Contrary to the idea carefully sown by seven years of propaganda, the war against Syria is not a « revolution which went wrong ». It was decided by the Pentagon in September 2001, then prepared for many years, admittedly with a few difficulties.

    A war in preparation for a decade

    JPEG – 38.6 kb

    The preparation of the war is explained in depth in Thierry Meyssan’s latest book. It is already available in French, Spanish, Russian and Turkish. It will be published in September in English, Arab and Italian.

    A reminder of the main stages of the planning of the war:

    – In September 2001, US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld adopted the strategy of Admiral Arthur Cebrowski, which specified that the state structures of half of the world had to be destroyed. For those states whose economy is globalised, the United States would control the access to the natural resources of those regions not connected to the global economy. The Pentagon commenced its work by « remodelling » the « Greater Middle East » [1].

    – On 12 December 2003, George Bush Jr. signed the Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act. From that moment on, the President of the United States enjoyed the right to go to war with Syria without having to ask Congress for approval [2].

    – The Lebanese civil war (1978-90) ended with the Taif Agreement. At the request of the Arab League, and with the approbation of the UN Security Council, the Syrian Arab Army came to the assistance of the Lebanese army in disarming the militias, then, acting as a Peace Force, stabilised the country. Thereafter, Israël accused Syria of having occupied Lebanon, which makes no sense at all. [3]

    – In 2004, during the summit of the Arab League in Tunis, President Ben Ali attempted to push through a motion authorising the League to legitimise the use of force against member states who refused to respect the League’s brand new Human Rights Charter.

    – In 2005, the CIA organised the Cedar revolution in Lebanon. By assassinating Sunni leader Rafic Hariri and blaming the Christian President of Lebanon and the Alaouite President of Syria, they hoped to trigger a Sunni uprising against the Syrian Peace Forces. With the Marines ready to disembark in Beïrut, Syria withdrew on its own initiative, and the tension was dissipated [4].

    – In 2006, Dick Cheney tasked his daughter Liz with creating the « Iran Syria Policy and Operations Group ». They organised the Israeli attack against Hezbollah, thinking that they would be unable to resist for long. US Marines were then intended to disembark in Beïrut and continue their march of « liberation » on Damascus. However, the operation failed, and after 33 days of combat, Israël had to retreat [5].

    – In 2008, Washington once again tried to create conflict with Lebanon as its flash point. Prime Minister Fouad Siniora decided to cut the internal communications of the Resistance and to interrupt air transport with Teheran. Within a few hours, Hezbollah had inverted the Western military system and replaced all of its infrastructures.

    – In 2010, Washington adopted the strategy of « leading from behind ». The Obama administration handed the attacks on Libya and Syria to France and the United Kingdom respectively (Lancaster House agreements).

    – In 2011, beginning of military operations in Syria.

    It is therefore absurd to speak of the war against Syria as a spontaneous event sui generis [6].

    Indirect war

    The original feature of the war against Syria is that although it was declared by states (the « Friends of Syria »), it was in reality fought almost exclusively by non-state armies, the jihadists.

    During the seven years of this war, more than 250,000 combatants arrived from overseas to fight against the Syrian Arab Republic. They were without doubt little more than cannon fodder, and insufficiently trained, but during the first four years of the conflict, these soldiers were better armed than the Syrian Arab Army. The most important arms traffic in History was organised in order to keep the jihadists supplied with war materials [7].

    The Western powers had not used mercenaries on this scale since the European Renaissance [8].

    It is therefore absurd to speak of a « revolution that went wrong ».

    A war supervised by allies who have their own objectives

    By asking Israël to attack Lebanon on their behalf, then by handing over the wars on Libya and Syria to France and the United Kingdom, and finally by using the NATO installations in Turkey, the Pentagon allowed its plan to be confounded by its allies.

    Just as in all wars, the leading country has to promise its obedient allies that they will be awarded a return on their investment. However, with the entry of Russia into the war, Western victory became impossible. Every one of the United States allies turned progressively back towards its own strategy in the region. With time, the war objectives of the allies gained the upper hand over those of the United States, who refused to invest as much as they should have done, militarily speaking.

    Israël

    Pursuing the colonial ideology of some of its founding fathers, Israël implemented a policy of division intended to split its larger neighbours into a collection of small countries which were to be ethnically or religiously homogeneous. It therefore supported – in vain – the division of Lebanon into two states, one Muslim and one Christian, or again the creation of a Kurdistan in Iraq, then later in Syria. We do not have the Israëli strategic documents, but retrospectively, the line followed by Tel-Aviv corresponds to the « Yinon plan » of 1982 [9] or that of the Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies of 1996 [10].

    The Israëli strategy stayed within the limits of the « remodelling of the Greater Middle East » designed by Rumsfeld and Cebrowski. However, it did not have anything like the same objective – the Pentagon wanted to control the access to the region’s riches by the developed countries, while Israël wanted to ensure that none of its neighbours could become strong enough to challenge it.

    The United Kingdom and France

    The United Kingdom and France fell back on their colonial policy, as it was defined at the moment of the fall of the Ottoman Empire and the division of the Middle East (the Sykes-Picot agreements).

    The British used a replay of the « Great Arab Revolt of 1915 » that Lawrence of Arabia had set up against the Ottomans. At that time, they had promised freedom to all Arabs if they would throw off the shackles of the Ottoman Empire and place the Wahhabites in power, This time they promised freedom if they would overthrow all their national governments and replace them with the Muslim Brotherhood. But neither in 1915, when the British Empire replaced the Ottoman Empire, nor in 2011, did the Arabs find their liberty. That was the « Arab Spring » plan of 2011 [11].

    The French were seeking to re-establish the mandate on Syria which had been handed to them by the League of Nations. This was explained by Picot’s great-nephew (as in the Sykes-Picot agreements), ex- President Giscard d’Estaing [12]. And that is what President Hollande demanded during his visit to the United Nations, in September 2015. Just as in 1921, when France stood for the ethnic separation of the Kurds from the Arabs, it therefore defended the creation of a Kurdistan, not on its historic territory in Turkey, but anywhere, so long as it was on Arab land in Syria.

    Turkey

    As for Turkey, it dreamed of realising the promise of its founder, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the « National Pact » (Misak-ı Millî) [13], adopted by the Ottoman Parliament on 12 February 1920. Its intention was to annex Northern Syria, including Aleppo, and also to eliminate the Christians, including the Catholics in Maaloula and the Armenians in Kessab.

    Turkey entered into conflict with the other allies – with the Israëlis because they sought to annex Northern Syria rather than making it autonomous – with the British because they wanted to re-establish the Ottoman Caliphate – and with the French because they sought to create an independent Kurdistan in Syria. Above all, it entered into conflict with the United States themselves because they made no secret of wanting to destroy Syria after having dismantled it [14].

    How to escape from this war?

    After seven years of combat, the Syrian state is still standing. The Syrian Arab Republic and its allies, Russia, Iran and the Hezbollah, are victorious. The foreign armies (the jihadists) have suffered a crushing defeat, but not their commanders – the United States, Israël, the United Kingdom, France and Turkey.

    Not only has the war re-awoken the ambitions of the beginning of the 20th century, but none of the protagonists who have not paid for their defeat in blood are ready to abandon the fight.

    It may seem stupid to want to start over with a war which has already been lost by the jihadists. The presence of the Russian army makes impossible any direct confrontation. Far from being eliminated, the Syrian population is now battle-hardened, ready to suffer even more hardship, and is much better armed than before. Above all, it has given the situation some serious thought, and is less manipulable than it was in 2011. However, just as before, Western political rhetoric has once again taken up its refrain « Bachar must go ».

    Logically, therefore, the conflict will have to start again on another battle-field. While in the past, Admiral Cebrowski had planned to take the next stage of the war to Central Asia and the South-East, his successors will first have to finish the job in the Greater Middle East. They are currently studying the possibility of relighting the fire in Iraq, as we see with the spectacular about-face of the Rohani administration and the riots in Bassorah.

          Thanks i like voltairenet and have them bookmarked. Its cleaner on the forum to have links instead posting the whole article unless you think its going to get erased by the internet memory hole.

    • You can call me Al
      • TiredOfBsToo

        And right at the top, though I’m sure you and the rest of us know it to be a given, is Israel’s desire to have it destroyed using it’s dog (as in the tail wagging the dog), the US.

      • Bob

        Would add that Syria – as long term Russian client – rejected the mid 2000’s Qatari proposed natural gas pipeline across Syria into Turkey – then onto EU. That would have seriously served against Russian natural gas export markets in Europe. A good friend is hard to find – Syria held true to Russian interests – and Russia responded in kind in 2015 with intervention to support Syria against NATO proxy war.

    • Ronald

      While Thierry Meyssan is an excellent writer, his translation by Pete Kimberly is not as smooth as usual. However the breakdown of the points of view of the different players made it well worth reading.

    • Gregory Casey

      A quite brilliant exposition of how our so-called “elders and betters” here in the West …….. in Paris, London, Washington aided and abetted by Jerusalem & Ankara spend their lives salivating at the thought of shattering Countries & Peoples ………. other Countries and other Peoples, never their own. One day, and sooner than many of us may expect, they will have their come-uppance!!

    • Vince Dhimos

      Thanks for this eye opening article by Thierry Meyssan. It wraps it all up nicely. I just read at EJ Magnier’s site that Iraq is rebelling against the US and will oust the US-backed prez Haidar.

      Thank you for the link. The article is a definitive account of the shameful machination’s devised by the USA and her vassals to plunder nations for their resources.

    The US led ” Operation Roundup in Syria.”

    The NATO ( North Atlantic Terrorist Organisation ) nations have always been addicted to fancy acronyms ,FSA = Free Syrian Army when in reality they are US coalition mercenary gangs commanded by Wannabe Warlords.

    The US cowboy analogy ” Operation Roundup ” would be better named as ‘ Operation Double Down’ . The US is behaving like a drunk saloon cardsharp who is about to draw his gun :)

            “So Turks support Al Qaida with tanks or what.”

            Actually they aren’t supporting nothing.

            we will see when the operation starts.

      • FlorianGeyer

        All of the proxies are peas from the same Salafist pod.

      • You can call me Al

        The FSA is a name that covers a number of different groups. It started out as US backed as you can tell by the crap propaganda name given. After a while, many a group took the name. However you are probably right for some of them.

        • Jens Holm

          If You are lucky, You talk to his behind in this. If You are that close, You could put a memorystick in.

      There must be some reason, however lame, for the name of the operations – what about this:

      Why is it no women are ever rescued in these faux rescues? Do CW attacks only target men and children? Is that something you’d expect to observe in a REAL Syrian Defense rescue following a REAL CW attack or a scripted professionally done Wahabi Jihadi terrorist propaganda video to give the terrorists’ supporters in the ‘west’ an excuse to target the Syrian people and their liberators?….. All of those children being rescued and yet never a concerned mother at their side.

      What a load of Bull sh*t!!!!! And to think, Hollywood even produced a video supporting those Wahabi terrorists. Where was the MeToo movement…. no support for women to be rescued?

  • ColinNZ

    Summarised from an extremely reliable source inside Syria ……

    A US-UK crew arrived 8 Sep 2018 to Idlib City by traversing the Syrian border via Turkey. Syria’s Military Intelligence informed the Russian military who studied the evidence.

    Of the crew 12 are Americans who worked previously for outlets like NBC and CBS and of these there are 4 Israelis who hold dual US-Israel citizenship. The crew also has 6 UK MI6 contractors providing core planning, expertise and security. On 9 Sep the crew met with Jabhat Al-Nusra (al qaeda), the White Helmets (al qaeda pr) and Turkestan ‘rebels’ to plan the chemical event which would happen in Jisr Al-Shughoor. On the same day 2 barrels of chlorine were delivered via the Turkish border. The area is currently being prepared for filming with regard to the deployment of the chlorine in a civilian environment.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      yes all this is already common knowledge at least on the readers of this site and few others as well RT.

      But is all boils down to one single thing. How Russia whose the final recipient of all this propaganda will react and if she fulfill, her obligation to defend Syrian air space. To my book when you hitting an ally of mine the final target it must be me.

    • Gregory Casey

      We now just wait ……… problem for the CIA-MI6-Mossad crew, of course, is that if neither Russian nor Syrian Air-Force-Assets traverse the skies above Jisr al-Shughour for the next few weeks, they will be unable to explain how the Chemical elements are introduced onto the scenes ……. there may have to be a few “re-shoots” but if they think Russians & Syrians are that stupid, they …… CIS-MI6-Mossad really must be the stupid ones!!

      • FlorianGeyer

        The Jihadists sponsors could say it was a ‘ Chemical artillery shell attack ‘ I would think.

    • Hisham Saber

      Russia needs to find out exactly where these nefarious people are staying in Idlib and send in a couple of Kaliber’s.

  • Vince Dhimos
  • Tommy Jensen

    What Heather Nauert, US Department of State WOMAN spokesperson, (note that US has equal non-suppressed women in key jobs) is saying, is that White Helmets members also have feelings and their human rights.
    White Helmet members should not be discriminated but their human rights should be acknowledged as this is their culture and their truth, and you have your culture and your fake news and this should be respected.
    But Russia dont wanna respect other people´s culture. They only claim their own patriarchal, traditional, authoritarian, women and gay suppressing, military regime communist model, bulldozing everybody down who wants to make peace and have THEIR freedom from the ButcherAssad´s regime.
    Respect Rastaman!

      you have hallucinations again? I told you, not to overdose on your medication.

        Where did you get the “again” from Promitheas? Tommy has distilled enough raw white spirit to exhaust a Russian Soviet-era Granary and is clearly drinking it on IV to the extent that what little brain survived childhood has undoubtedly fizzed and blown out :)

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          I stand corrected then. My bad :-)

            “Following the filming in the evening of September 11, at a joint meeting of representatives of the White Helmets and the militants of the Nusra Front terrorist group, only two videos out of nine were approved for transfer to the United Nations Nations and the OPCW following the order. The remaining videos due to poor quality are suggested for use in social networks,”

        The point is, You are in closed cirkels and only Your behinds se the rest of the world.

      This is the typical comment that comes from the Hasbara/JIDF idiots that infiltrate this site…

      Luckily everyone with common sense and who know the truth about Syria can see through this “Tommy Jensen” in a heartbeat!

        I blocked him long ago. I don’t have time to read his tripe…nor do I have that strong a stomach.

        • Jens Holm

          Fine with me. Block me too.

          You are like sheep insisting to be sheep runned by fear and bajonets.

      • Jens Holm

        Hard to know there are other in the world then Your kind.

      Russian Bolchevik were mostly Jews and went to Israel
      where they are the Population 90% and in the US….

      In the USSR according Alexandre Soljenitsyne last book,
      they were Gulag’s Masters and Butchers….

      • Hisham Saber

        It starts with the Jews, and ends with the Jews. Sigh.

        Its all in the book ‘ 200 Years Together ‘

        Jews also were behind the Ukrainian Holodomor, that wiped out about 7 million souls.

        • Jens Holm

          Adam was a jew. Moses was and Noah was. Most of Islam probatly are copycatting Jews and Christians, but something went wrong.

          • Hisham Saber

            You know Jens, your mother did the world a disservice when she pooped you out.

      • Jens Holm

        Barking mad too

    • FlorianGeyer

      The US is really in rather a mess .

  • Tommy Jensen

    Turkey never really left their role in the game did they?

    White Helmets and M16 assets enter Idlib from Turkey, heavy weapons transported to terrorists through Turkey, Turkish military enforcing the Idlib defence line for terrorist forces, Turkish government media demand Assad must go, and this is recently.

  • northerntruthseeker .

    Well.. Here we go with the real nature of the US Government in its defiance of its own laws, in supporting the real “terrorists” in Syria…

  • Dušan Mirić

  • Jamie9260

    Hopefully when time come they are put in ground like all the rest!

  • The US is getting close to saying al-Qaeda are nice and accusing Russia of 9/11. They have already tried to portray all their wars as somehow being against Russia and replace al-Qaeda with Russia in every sentence, even when Russia is not there.

    • Jens Holm

      Well, they kind of have, because Al Qaida in Syria do no terror outside Syria.

      USA never has tryed to portray all their wars as against Russia. Many are. Thats not a try but facts. And its many levels.

      Syria and Iraq are not that. You assume things in USA is runned by only Presidents and McCains. They are not. Western economics with or without wars as made by stockholders and shares.

      You can buy them free on the market for money and almost supporting all countries in the world and Yourself at the same time.

      And Yes, I see several 100 lies about westerns and Israel every day here. 3/4 of all here at this comments just for this artickle is oneyed crap for any western, which even care.

      You really dont get how the distance is seen from a well oriented private person as me reading several newssites. You are so totally manipulated Yourself as if The Holy Choran has learned You, that You HAS TO LIE.

      I am blamed for bad english here. But when I write on english and american newssites, I am hardly ever been blamed.

      Thats on of the gabs. The differences are like trenches and You dont se, You only think in arabic and Turkish limited highschool english. We see it in advanced jobs here all the time. Your perfect and limited english dont cover our world at all, so only very few learn enough to advance.

      Its not Your fault, Your language, culture and religion is so different. But as a start, You could blame us for, what we are – not what You are censured to.

      I only see our backsites on Your sites. Your own history of countries are as Your neigbors were from another part of the continent or mars.

      And You ignore that and bleme even jews and westerns for, what Your nationalisme as well as etnical disputes are.

      Your own oistory even are very detailed and well descriebed from very different more neutral siurces – And for free at Internet.

      You not even look at it and are in what Assads hasand Your Grandmother told You. You even insist i lying for each other all the time. All is blaming and admitting in the most low toilet mode, You can find in a deep ISIS mode.

  • TS

    I’ll bet that there are many DOUBLE AGENTS’ in this existing ‘WHITE HELMET’ crowd. This is not going to work out well for the West and their agendas.

    • Jens Holm

      Well is a relative. One option by USA was to reduce Assads.

      I only can see Assads are reduced very much.

  • Bob

    Ongoing White Helmets saga. After recent near SAA mass capture of White Helmets in southern Syria, the foriegn intel managers and their wage-payed militants were emergency evacuated into Isreal (foreign mangers were real NATO concern) then flown onto Jordan, then onto Turkey – from where NATO intel sent them back into northern Syria. Why – to manufacture more NATO manufactured ‘chemical outrage’ incidents to demand ‘humanitarian’ NATO intervention as public rationale for direct NATO attack on non NATO compliant Syrian state. If live and work in any NATO state, your taxes currently pay for this war on Syrian state. As ever the basic question remains, for whose core interests is this war waged?

    • You can call me Al

      My taxes ?, what ? – noooooo, we in the UK dont fund shit head like the white helmets.. whoops !!

      • Jens Holm

        Makes me laugh too. Hardly any change by tax. He dont know what tax is for here.

    • Hisham Saber

      Mainly, Israel’s.

    • Jens Holm

      Whatever.

      We pay much more for the refugees already here then some emmigrants can send.
      50% of our newer citicens and children has no jobs at all. Most Emmigrant are in the low scale in jobs and hardly pay tax.

      Denmark last Year had a MINUS in our balance og 500 billion dollars. Thats much, much more then we spend in our wars.

        Truth hurts, huh – apparently you can’t much handle it.
