Russia tells US to clarify its Syria policy, Irked by its double-standard games

Russia, irked by US double-standard games on Syria, has called on Washington to clarify its stance on the expected international conference on the crisis in the Arab country. The closed-door meeting on Wednesday failed to specify a date for the conference due to the unwillingness on the part of Syria's opposition to participate without preconditions, whereas democratically elected and popular Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad does not and is willing to attend. Russia's foreign minister Lavrov’s comments come as, despite calling for political peaceful solutions, the US has already started sending arms to militants in Syria, a move which is seen as a blow to Moscow’s efforts to start talks for settling the dispute.

The Rumor of the Century: “Israel Wiped off the Map” Ahmadinejad’s Fabricated Comment

Iran is blamed for many things - for refusing to abide by the “reasonable demands” of “the international community”. Realities are twisted and turned upside down when it comes to news reporting by the mainstream media and American "official" narrative. Iran is being accused of wanting to start a war. Inherent in US military doctrine, the victims of war are heralded as the aggressor. Iran is not a threat to to Global Security. The threat to global security comes from the US-NATO-Israel military alliance, which continuously threatens Iran with a pre-emptive attack with nuclear warheads. This is the reason for destroying Syria, which Zionists are very much behind it. Iran does not possess a nuclear weapons program. Iran does not constitute a threat to Israel. It has natural resources that USA wants for global hegemony and to save its declining Empire. The alleged "Israel be wiped off the map" made by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on October 26, 2005 is sheer media manipulation and “propaganda in action”. The rumor was fabricated by the American media with a view to discrediting Iran’s head of state and providing a justification for waging an all out war on Iran. It is then propagated by many Zionist paid journalists and the mainstream media they work for, in addition to the Zionist paid and Jewish-controlled U.S. politicians. It is, therefore, essential to dispel the fabrications of the Western media. If Iran is attacked, we are potentially in a World War III scenario. The following text by Arash Norouzi of The Mossadegh Project wrote an excellent breakdown of Ahmadinejad's speech from farsi to English entitled "Wiped off The Map: The Rumor of the Century" in January 18, 2007 to enlighten our readers and confirm that the alleged “Wiped Off the Map” statement by Iran’s president was never made.

It is Debka that reveals the latest development in Syria and expose Israeli lethal miscalculations. Israel lost according to Gilad Atzmon.
