I am working for the Belgian human rights association 'Werkgroep Morkhoven' which revealed the Zandvoort childporn case (88.539 victims). The case was covered up by the authorities. During the past years I have been really shocked by the way the rich countries of the western empire want to rule the world.

    Following joint military operations during Operation Desert Storm in 1991, Qatar and the United States concluded a Defense Cooperation Agreement that has been subsequently expanded. In April 2003, the U.S. Combat Air Operations Center for the Middle East moved from Prince Sultan Air Base in Saoudi Arabia to Qatar’s Al Udeid Air Base south of Doha, the Qatari capital.

    Al Udeid Air Base (Arabic: قاعدة العديد الجوية) is also known as Abu Nakhlah Airport (Arabic:مطار أبو نخلة). It houses foreign coalition personnel and assets. It is host to a forward headquarters of United States Central Command, headquarters of United States Air Forces Central, No. 83 Expeditionary Air Group RAF, and the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing of the USAF. In 1999, the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad, reportedly told US officials that he would like to see as many as 10,000 US servicemen permanently stationed at Al Udeid.
    Al Udeid and other facilities in Qatar serve as logistics, command, and basing hubs for the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) area of operations, including Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Obama’s paradox on Syria: Arming terrorists, seeking political solution!

    June 24, 2013

    According to the Washington Post, US President Barack Obama has a diffuse strategy in Syria. He has decided to arm the opposition to Assad, but, at the same time, he claims to be looking for a political solution.

    The newspaper pointed out that Obama wants to reinforce what he considers the “moderate armed opposition” -which is led by Gen. Salim Idriss, chief of the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA)- and wants to make it “strong enough” to negotiate with the other camp during the period of political transition, which could be opened as a result of the Geneva Conference II.

    Obama’s second objective is to deal with Hezbollah and other pro-Iranian groups, which are active in Syria. The third aim of this strategy, according to the Washington Post, is to cut off military and financial support for al-Qaeda-linked armed groups, which are considered “extremist and dangerous”.

    For the US administration, the control that these extremist groups exercise on the whole armed opposition is an undesirable and disturbing fact because they also endanger some pro-American regimes in the region, especially the Jordanian one, which is currently on a tightrope. This is why Obama seeks to promote Idriss, even though his successes have been practically nil as a military leader.

    The world rejects the alleged “evidence” on the chemical weapons
    The first problem for the US administration, however, is that, according to the Washington Post, the pretext used by Obama to arm the Syrian opposition, the alleged use of chemical weapons by Damascus, has convinced nobody, since everyone knows the reality due largely to the alternative media and the Internet. “Western officials and diplomats have also acknowledged that the lack of transparency has undermined the credibility of the chemical-weapons claims”, the paper said.

    The Washington Post itself published a few days ago an article by two experts, Joby Warrick and Colum Lynch, which claimed that “there is no reliable way to assess the authenticity” of the samples submitted by the US government to the countries of the Security Council as “evidence”. The article added that Obama’s own statements on the establishment of “a red line with respect to chemical weapons in Syria was a powerful incentive for the opposition to fabricate such evidence.”

    “If you are the opposition and you hear” that the White House has drawn a red line on the use of nerve agents, then “you have an interest in giving the impression that some chemical weapons have been used,” said Rolf Ekeus, a Swedish scientist who headed up UN weapons inspections in Iraq during the 1990s.

    Jean Pascal Zanders, who was until recently a research fellow at the European Union Institute for Security Studies, said that he scoured the Internet for photos, videos and reports on the “evidence” of the alleged chemical attacks by the Syrian government and what he saw “made him a skeptic.”
