April 29th, 2013

Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, warned of the gravity of using the pretext of the chemical use to fulfill geopolitical interests for foreign powers and states against Syria.

In a press statement in Moscow on Monday, Lavrov renewed the Russian stance that calls for solving the crisis in Syria through dialogue and halting violence.

Lavrov said that there are states and foreign powers that consider all means are good for toppling the regime in Syria, but the issue of using weapons of mass destruction is very dangerous and unacceptable.

The Russian Foreign Minister stressed that such geopolitical game hinders investigations of the use of chemical weapons near Aleppo on 91th March, blaming the states that want the UN Secretary-General not to reply directly to the demand raised by the Syrian government to the UN to investigate the issue of a terrorist group's launching a missile loaded with chemicals in Khan al-Asal near Aleppo.

On the western demands of investigating in other areas in Syria, Lavrov stressed "the supporting evidence of such allegations were not given to any side or by any side in whatever time before, but rather intelligence circles including ours talked about the non- existence of any facts that support these allegations."

" No change has taken place in the Russian stance regarding the crisis in Syria," he said replying the allegations published by some Lebanese media outlets after Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov's visit to Lebanon on a change in the Russian stance.

He clarified that his country has worked since the very beginning on calling everybody and all those who have influence in the situation not to support any particular side, as it also asked all parties to halt violence and start deliberations without any pre-conditions, reminding that this stance was present in Geneva Statement.

April 27, 2013

MOSCOW, (SANA)- Deputy Chairman of the Russian Federation Council Ilyas Umakhanov said Moscow's stance on the crisis in Syria is firm, stressing that Russia will not leave Syria alone in this ordeal.

"Russia's stance is that the Syrian people alone have the right to solve their problems without foreign interference," Umakhanov said during his meeting with Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi in Moscow Saturday.

He added that a solution to the crisis in Syria can be reached through the dialogue table.

He hailed the long history of cooperation and ties binding Russia and Syria that has never been broken, stressing that Moscow hopes that Syria reaches the path of peace and that bloodshed stops as soon as possible.

Al-Zoubi: American Hysteria on Chemical Weapons Prompted by teh Syrian Army's Successes

For his part, Information Minister al-Zoubi pointed out that the American hysteria that has been going on for days regarding the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government is prompted by the successes achieved by the Syrian Arab Army against the terrorists.

He noted that the primary structure of the armed opposition in Syria consists mainly of foreign mercenaries who have come to Syria not only from neighboring countries but also from Britain, Australia and France among others.

Al-Zoubi said that the Syrian government has information that the gunmen fighting on the Syrian ground have come from 29 countries, pointing out that more than 5000 gunmen have come from Yemen alone.

He added that the flow of foreign fighters to the country continuously increases, stressing that the foreign interference element through sending those gunmen is the main obstacle to finding a solution to the crisis.

The Minister said the Syrian side is interested in Russia's participation in the reconstruction process in Syria after the crisis comes to an end.

Western war propaganda continues: 'possibility of chemical weapons'

Image

West is using possibility of chemical weapons to encourage intervention in Syria’

The US and UK are using the possibility of chemical weapons in Syria to increase the prospect of intervention in the country, anti-war activist Lindsey German told RT.

She called the latest piece of evidence against Syria’s chemical weapons use “dubious.”

Even US President Barack Obama has stated that intelligence assessments proving that such weapons had been used by the Syrian regime were still “preliminary.” He did, however, stress that the deployment of chemical weapons by the Syrian government was a “game changer.”

“But of course [the US and UK] are using this as a way to increase the prospect of intervention in Syria,” German said. 

RT: The UK has reportedly confirmed the use of chemical weapons in Syria after an MI6 operation. But we know how the intelligence worked in Iraq - aren't we just witnessing the same again in Syria?

Lindsey German: Absolutely I think the same sort of story is being repeated and of course many people didn’t believe it ten years ago and many more now realize they were told lies. I think this latest piece of evidence is very dubious, even the US and British authorities are saying they’re not certain…they’re not certain at all what quantities have been used but of course they’re using the fact that supposedly chemical weapons have been used in this way to increase the prospect of intervention in Syria and this comes after a number of other things, including the EU foreign ministers meeting this week and deciding they’ll lift the embargo on oil that they’ve placed on Syria, in order to buy oil not from the government but from the opposition.

So it seems we’re going down a very dangerous road and yet again this is a further step forward in the path toward intervention like we did see in Iraq.

RT: The US says the data their intelligence has provided, is not irrefutable, meanwhile the Syrian opposition's demanding action from Washington, its allies and the UN. What was behind these unconfirmed statements then?

LG: I think what’s happening is there are clearly conflicts about whether there should be direct intervention. There’s clearly many people in the opposition who want the US and western powers to intervene. There are politicians in all these countries who might want to, but who fear the consequences. Particularly in Britain, David Cameron knows that any sense that this is connected to the sort of thing that went on with Iraq is very unpopular so they’re nervous about it but at the same time they want regime change, they want to get rid of Assad, they want to be able to change the face of the Middle East so they fundamentally weaken Iran and its allies, which includes Syria, Hezbollah in Lebanon, and so on.

I think this is a move where they’re trying to amass more and more reasons going to war. We already have US and British troops training in Jordan near the Syrian border. We already have money coming in from Saudi Arabia and Qatar to fund the opposition. We already have the Turkish government who has provided facilities for the Free Syrian Army. And I think this is a further ratchet up towards the possibility of war. And after all, Obama said last year that the existence and use of chemical weapons will be a game changer and the people who really want intervention are hoping that will be the case.

United States support for Iraq during the Iran–Iraq War, against post-revolutionary Iran, included several billion dollars worth of economic aid, the sale of dual-use technology, non-U.S. origin weaponry, military intelligence, Special Operations training, and direct involvement in warfare against Iran.

Support from the U.S. for Iraq was not a secret and was frequently discussed in open session of the Senate and House of Representatives. On June 9, 1992, Ted Koppel reported on ABC's Nightline, "It is becoming increasingly clear that George Bush, operating largely behind the scenes throughout the 1980s, initiated and supported much of the financing, intelligence, and military help that built Saddam's Iraq into the power it became", and "Reagan/Bush administrations permitted—and frequently encouraged—the flow of money, agricultural credits, dual-use technology, chemicals, and weapons to Iraq."

NATO: “territorial defence of Europe” and “peace-making” ?

Syria.Vrije Syrische Leger.Guy Verhofstadt .jpg

The Common Foreign and Security Policy of the European Union

The Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) is the organised, agreed foreign policy of the European Union (EU) for mainly security and defence diplomacy and actions. CFSP deals only with a specific part of the EU’s external relations, which domains include mainly Trade and Commercial Policy and other areas such as funding to third countries, etc. Decisions require unanimity among member states in the Council of the European Union, but once agreed, certain aspects can be further decided by qualified majority voting. Foreign policy is chaired and represented by the EU’s High Representative.

The CFSP sees the NATO responsible for the territorial defence of Europe and “peace-making”. However, since 1999, the European Union is responsible for implementing missions, such as “peace-keeping” and policing of treaties, etc. A phrase that is often used to describe the relationship between the EU forces and NATO is “separable, but not separate”: The same forces and capabilities form the basis of both EU and NATO efforts, but portions can be allocated to the European Union if necessary. Concerning missions, the right of first refusal exists: the EU may only act if NATO first decides not to.

“Territorial defence of Europe” and “peace-making”...

Verhofstadt.Guy.davignon.Sofina.jpg

Brussels, April 26th, 2013

Verhofstadt about Syria: ‘The weak position of the European Union makes me sick. The European Commission knows what needs to be done, so they should go ahead and use every means possible, including less orthodox ways if needed. The time for peace talks is over, we need action now. If the UN doesn’t react, then NATO should.’

Guy Verhofstadt

Verhofstadt became president of the Flemish Liberal Student's Union (1972–1974) while studying law at the University of Ghent. He quickly became the secretary of Willy De Clercq, who was at that time the president of the Flemish liberal party (Party for 'Freedom and Progress', PVV). In 1982, at age 29, he became president of the party. In 1985 he was elected into the Chamber of Deputies, and became Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Budget under Prime Minister Wilfried Martens. Because of his economic views and his young age, he became known as "Baby Thatcher". Another nickname from that era is "da joenk", a Brabantian dialect expression meaning "that kid" (in a pejorative sense, referring to his rather iconoclastic and immature style).
After a failed attempt to form a government in November 1991, he resigned and disappeared from the political scene, only to return to the party's presidency in 1997 with a 'less radical image'.

Partly because of a food scandal that broke out just before the elections, his party became the largest party in the country, and he was appointed Prime Minister on July 12, 1999, the first liberal to hold that office since 1938.

Following the 2003 general elections, Verhofstadt formed his second cabinet.
In the regional elections of June 13, 2004, his party lost votes.
Since then, Verhofstadt has been faced with internal crisis after crisis.

In 2004, Verhofstadt was suggested as a candidate to replace Romano Prodi as the next President of the European Commission. He was the choice of the former French president, Jacques Chirac, and Germany's
ex-chancellor, Gerhard Schroder, but his candidacy was opposed and rejected by a coalition led by Tony Blair and Silvio Berlusconi.

After his premiership he took up the seat of Senator to which he had been elected in 2007.
In the 2009 European Parliament election, he was elected a member of the European Parliament for the term 2009–2014 and has been put forward as the possible candidate for replacing José Manuel Barroso as the president of the European Commission by a coalition of greens, socialists and liberals.
On July 1, 2009 he was elected President of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe group in the European Parliament.
Verhofstadt is also a member of the Club de Madrid, an organization of more than 80 former statesmen. The group works to promote ‘democratic governance and leadership worldwide’.
On April 2, 2012 Verhofstadt Verhofstadt replaced Etienne Davignon who was for many years chairman of the audit committee of Sofina and a member of the remuneration and nomination committee.

Etienne Davignon

Davignon joined the Belgian Foreign Ministry, in 1959, and within two years had become an attaché under Paul-Henri Spaak, then-Minister of Foreign Affairs. He remained in Belgian government until 1965. In 1970, he chaired the committee of experts which produced the Davignon report on foreign policy for Europe. On 27 October 1970, in Luxembourg, the Foreign Ministers of the Six adopted the Report, which 'seeks progress in the area of political unification through cooperation in foreign policy matters'.

Davignon later became the first head of the International Energy Agency, from 1974 to 1977, before becoming a member of the European Commission, of which he was vice-president from 1981 till 1985. From 1989 to 2001, he was chairman of the Belgian bank Société Générale de Belgique, which is now part of the French supplier Suez and was not an arm of the French bank Société Générale, but a Belgian institution. He is now Vice Chairman of Suez subsidiary, Suez-Tractebel.

As chairman of Société Générale de Belgique, he was a member of the European Round Table of Industrialists. He is the current co-chairman of the EU-Japan Business Dialogue Round Table, chairman of the Paul-Henri Spaak Foundation, president of the EGMONT - Royal Institute for International Relations, chairman of CSR Europe, chairman of the European Academy of Business in Society and was chairman of the annual Bilderberg conference from 1998 to 2001.

Davignon is the chairman of the board of directors of Brussels Airlines, which he co-founded after the bankruptcy of Sabena. He is also a member of the board of numerous Belgian companies, and is the chairman of the board of directors and of the General Assembly of the ICHEC Brussels Management School.

On 26 January 2004, Davignon was given the honorary title of Minister of State, giving him a seat on the Crown Council.

On April 2, 2012, when Guy Verhofstadt became a Board Member of the Brussels-based, Brussels-quoted Sofina holding, Etienne Davignon leaved the governing body of Sofina after 27 years. Sofina's Board of Directors decided him to grant the title of Honorary Director.

Davignon is a crucial member of the Strategic Advisory Panel of The European Business Awards. He is a member of the Cercle Gaulois and a member of the Advisory Board of the Itinera Institute think tank. He is also President of the Brussels-based think tank Friends of Europe.

Internet giant Google is investing an extra 300 million euros at its data centre in the Walloon town of Dour near Mons. In time this will result in the creation of 200 long-trem jobs.

Google made the announcement during a visit of the Belgian Prime Minister, Elio Di Rupo (Francophone socialist). Google’s data centre in Dour is one of the three largest operated by the company in the continent of Europe.

The 300 million will finance a major three-year expansion programme. Google hardware operations manager Freddy Bonhomme told the Belgian press agency Belga: “Work has just started. Between 300 and 350 people are being hired.”

Employment levels may fall after the project is completed.

The Belgian Interior Minister Joëlle Milquet (Francophone Christian democrat) has arrived in Washington DC for a three-day visit.

The Belgians will visit the National Counter Terrorism Center, the CIA, the FBI, the Terrorist Screening Center and the American Justice and Homeland Security ministries.

Ms Milquet will meet with the Head of the CIA John Brennan. Meetings with the American Homeland Security Minister and members of the Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications are also planned, as are visits to the American Congress and the House of Representatives.

Latest News Syria: Jordan government

Syria.manifestation.against.terrorism.alalam..jpg

"We hope that the Jordan government be sincere in its statements”

---

The Syrian army has put on its agenda the conclusive removal of foreign-backed armed terrorists since 10 days ago, said Syrian member of parliament Sharif Shehadeh, adding that it now fully controls the city of Dara’a.

Syrian army launches massive ops against terror

In an interview with Iranian 24-hour Arabic News Channel, Al-Alam, the Syrian MP stressed that “the situation in Daraa is under full control. Many terrorists had entered the city via Jordan borders, but the Syrian army has successfully managed to force them to withdraw and gain command in the region”. MP Shehadeh was responding to the question that armed terror groups had planned to launch an attack on capital Damascus through controlling Dara’a. 

“The Jordanian regime endorsed armed groups from the beginning and allowed them to enter Syria through its borders; But later on, it realized that terrorist groups will cause trouble for it and the Jordanian community, so it retreated from its stance and declared to the Syria government that it would not permit transfer of armed terrorists to Syria. We also hope that the Jordan government be sincere in its statements”, the Syrian MP said about Jordan’s take on the Syrian crisis.

“The army has started massive operations in different parts of the country since 10 days ago, and will soon wrap it up successfully” he added, referring to the nation and the army’s support for the Syrian leadership.

Referring to supports being given to al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorists in Syria by some regional states, Shehadeh noted that “any attempt to create insecurity and weakening security in Syria will become a catastrophe to the whole region”.

He concluded that discord among Syrian opposition groups has its roots in the fact that they are serving the interests of various countries in the region.

“Some of these groups are linked to Qatar and some to Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the U.S, and other countries”.

The unrest in Syria began in March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of soldiers and security personnel, have been killed in the violence.

The Syrian government believes the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports confirming that a very large number of terrorists fighting in Syria are foreign nationals.

Reynders accused President Assad of ‘lies’ and said  “If nothing has changed Thursday, the international community should start thinking about the next step.”

He argued for including the sending of a UN mission that could establish a “humanitarian corridor”.

Reynders is a good personal friend of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy.

Reynders is also a member of the liberal party of MEP Guy Verhofstadt who is pleading for a strong European army and military interventions. In 2009 Verhofstadt  has been put forward as the possible candidate for replacing José Manuel Barroso as the president of the European Commission by a coalition of greens, socialists and liberals. Since 2012 is Verhofstadt a Board Member of the Brussels-based, Brussels-quoted Sofina holding (petroleum gas and oil platforms). He can look forward to a fee which is in line with that of the other directors, who last year received an amount between 42.000 134.000 euros. The Belgian industrialist Viscount Etienne Davignon is Honorary Director of Sofina.

Bilderberg Group behind terrorist attacks...

April 11, 2013

Italian Supreme Court President Blames Bilderberg For Terrorist Attacks

Document says secretive group was involved in “strategy of tension”

Honorary President of the Supreme Court of Italy and former Senior Investigative Judge Ferdinando Imposimato, the man who prosecuted the case involving the assassination attempt against Pope John Paul II, has sensationally accused the Bilderberg Group of being behind terrorist attacks in Europe.

In an interview with the ArticoloTre website, Imposimato, who was also involved in the case involving the kidnapping and murder of former Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro, said that he “found a document that left me appalled” implicating the Bilderberg Group in conspiring with the far right organization Ordine Nuovo to commit terror attacks.

Speaking of unsolved murders in Italy and the document in his possession, Imposimato stated, “When it comes to slaughter it also speaks of the Bilderberg Group. I believe this document. I did some tests and I can say that behind the strategy of tension and the slaughters there is also the Bilderberg group, a sort of Big Brother is over, maneuvering, using terrorists and Masons. “

The “strategy of tension” refers to a policy under the auspices of Operation Gladio, a NATO cold war “stay behind” project that sought to create an expedient political climate in Europe by having its agents carry out terror attacks which were then blamed on both far left and far right political groups.

Gladio was designed to demonize political opposition and “force the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security,” according to the testimony of former Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra. In 2000, an Italian parliamentary investigation found that the 1980 Bologna train bombing, which killed 85 people, was carried out by “men inside Italian state institutions and … men linked to the structures of United States intelligence.”

“You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game,” Vinciguerra explained in sworn testimony.

“The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security. This is the political logic that lies behind all the massacres and the bombings which remain unpunished, because the state cannot convict itself or declare itself responsible for what happened,” he added.

Imposimato stated that he was given the document by a former Ordine Nuovo terrorist. Members of Ordine Nuovo (Italian for “New Order”) participated in numerous deadly terrorist attacks, including the 1969 Piazza Fontana bombing, the 1970 Rome-Messina train attack, the 1974 Piazza della Loggia bombing in Brescia, and the Italicus Express bombing in 1974.

The Bilderberg Group is an annual confab of around 120 of the most influential power brokers on the planet from the world of politics, business, banking, academia, media, and even royalty. The organization’s yearly meeting is held in a plush hotel resort in either Europe, Canada or America, but despite a plethora of heavy hitters in attendance, the mainstream media affords the event scant coverage, labeling it a mere talking shop despite former NATO Secretary-General and Bilderberg member Willy Claes’ 2010 admission that Bilderberg attendees are mandated to implement policy decisions that are formulated during the meeting.

There are innumerable other examples of how Bilderberg has influenced major global events ahead of time, picking Presidents and Prime Ministers on a regular basis with total contempt for the democratic process.

In 2009, Bilderberg chairman Étienne Davignon even bragged about how the Euro single currency was a brainchild of the Bilderberg Group.

Imposimato’s broadside against Bilderberg follows in the footsteps of his compatriot Alfonso Luigi Marra, a prominent lawyer who recently requested that the Public Prosecutor of Rome investigate the Bilderberg Group for criminal activity, questioning whether the elitist organization’s 2011 meeting in Switzerland led to the selection of Mario Monti as Prime Minister of Italy.

Labeling the group a “unique, illegal brotherhood” of elitists who consider themselves to be “above the law,” Marra pointed the finger at Bilderberg for engineering wars, economic collapses, and arming dictators, activities which, “constitute an obvious, blatant violation, to say the least, of the articles of the Criminal Code.”

The precise date and location of the 2013 Bilderberg meeting is yet to be confirmed, although speculation has centered around the confab taking place somewhere near London in early June.

“He didn’t know or recognise Guy, whose advice he listened to with considerable astonishment,” Mr Blair writes. “He then turned to me and whispered, ‘Who is this guy?’ ‘He is the prime minister of Belgium,’ I said.
“Belgium? George said, clearly aghast at the possible full extent of his stupidity. ‘Belgium is not part of the G8’.”
Mr Blair explained to Mr Bush that Mr Verhofstadt was there as “president of Europe”. Belgium held the presidency of the EU council at the time.
Mr Bush responded: “You got the Belgians running Europe?” before shaking his head, “now aghast at our stupidity”, Mr Blair writes.

Elsewhere in the book Mr Blair claims that the president held an uncomplicated view of international affairs.
“George had immense simplicity in how he saw the world. Right or wrong it led to decisive leadership.”
The former prime minister also suggests he was uneasy with Mr Bush’s 2002 State of the Union speech, in which he described Iran, Iraq, Syria and North Korea as an “axis of evil”.

Syria: Verhofstadt wants heavy weapons for Idris

Free Syrian Army wants guns and heavy weapons

General Selim Idris, Chief of Staff of the Free Syrian Army was in the European Parliament, where he was invited by warmonger Guy Verhofstadt, leader of the Group of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats ‘for Europe’.

Idris said that his army needed the West to supply “weapons and ammunition” so that his forces can “defend themselves.”

He said that, if such support arrived, “The regime will collapse in a month.” He added that Syrians supporting the rebellion didn’t understand why the West had an arms embargo.

“The people say they don’t understand why international community sees the news on TV and just speak, saying ‘Assad has to go’. There is no real action,” he said.

He was supported by ALDE President, Guy Verhofstadt, who said that there was “a growing consensus in Europe that the Syrian conflict cannot go on interminably.” The Liberal leader also said that arms should be supplied “in order that you can defend yourselves.”

According to the liberals, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Catherine Ashton has to make proposals to the 27 EU Member states. In their view, Lady Ashton’s response is currently “mostly passive”.

Both France and Britain have indicated that they are prepared to reconsider the embargo on arming the western backed ‘rebels’…

Non-military security

Liberals recognise the contribution to peace made by aid-driven democratisation and development. We believe that we should be more flexible and open minded in our approach to security. The result of this would be to transfer more political commitment and money from military security to non-military security.

Non-military security should include:

arbitration/mediation in areas of potential or actual conflict;
monitoring the implementation of agreements in areas of potential or actual conflict;
reconciliation work in areas of potential or actual conflict;
local community based work to develop and/or maintain democratic structures and human rights in areas of potential conflict or where a fragile peace has been established;
local work to rebuild the economic and social infrastructure of communities damaged by conflict;
research and development into moving economy and industry from reliance on servicing and producing for the military;
study of the causes and resolutions of conflict.

The problems of power

Aldous Huxley.jpg

Aldous Huxley: War shatters precarious crust of civilization, precipitates vast numbers of human beings into abyss of misery and frenzied diabolism

At the San Francisco Conference the only problems discussed were problems of power. The basic problem of mankind – the problem of getting enough to eat – was relegated to an obscure international committee on agriculture. And yet it is surely obvious that if genuine international agreement is ever to be reached and preserved, it must be an agreement with regard to problems which, first, are of vital interests to the masses of humanity and which, second, are capable of solution without resort to war or the threat of war.

The problems of power are primarily the concern of the ruling few, and the nature of power is essentially expansive, so that there is not the least prospect of power problems being solved when one expanding system collides with another expanding system, except by means of organized, scientific violence or war. But war on the modern scale shatters the thin, precarious crust of civilization and precipitates vast numbers of human beings into an abyss of misery and slow death, of moral apathy or positive and frenzied diabolism. If politicians were sincere in their loudly expressed desire for peace, they would do all they could to by-pass the absolutely insoluble problems of power by concentrating all their attention, during international conferences and diplomatic discussion, on the one great problem which every member of the human race is concerned to solve — the one great problem which not only does not require military violence for its solution, but which, for the world at large, is wholly insoluble so long as the old games of militarism and power politics continue to be played. The first item on the agenda of every meeting between the representatives of the various nations should be: How are all men women and children to get enough to eat?

Liberalen willen een 'totale oorlog' in Syrië

Syrië.Generaal Salim Idriss.VSL.jpg

“Als ik wapens heb win ik binnen de maand” 

 

MEDIAWERKGROEP SYRIE – 6 maart 2013 – De Liberale fractie in het Europees Parlement onder leiding van Guy Verhofstad en Koert Debeuf willen dat de Europese Unie nu ook openlijk en rechtstreeks wapens kan bezorgen aan de rebellen van het Vrije Syrische Leger (VSL).

Nu gebeurt dit via Turkije en de Golfstaten die dat op hun beurt verschaffen aan rebellen en terroristen in Syrië.

Generaal Salim Idriss, bekend van verschillende oorlogsmisdaden als generaal van het VSL, werd door de Europese Liberalen naar Brussel uitgenodigd om een openlijke wapenverkoop aan de rebellen te promoten.

Blijkbaar hebben veel Europese liberalen aandelen in wapenfirma’s om telkens weer het lobbywerk te doen voor die sector.

German NATO propagandist injured in Syria

Image

April 2, 2013

The German ARD correspondent Jörg Armbruster (media bias), known as one of the biggest war promoter from the war in Libya and Syria, was injured in Syria while he tried to produce another biased documentation for the German television.

The correspondent of the German state television media channels, Jörg Armbruster, became famous for his promotion of the war in Libya and his biased stories about the situation and events in Syria. Some also call him a direct mouthpiece of the United States, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other NATO countries – in order to sell the typical NATO propaganda to the German television viewer.
But the German correspondent Armbruster has not only used these channels to sell the false propaganda about Libya and Syria to the German television viewers, he also wrote a book and used all other ways to promote the NATO propaganda and to boost his own career. He is known as a careerist and twaddler for money in the German circle of journalists.
This goes so far that even some colleagues of the same German channel call him a propagandist and, as said, careerist. Both belongs probably together – promote the NATO propaganda and you won`t have problems in your career in Germany.
It is really unfortunate that Jörg Armbruster was injured in Syria but this happens when you stay with armed Jihadists and mercenaries. Of course, the Department of Psychological Warfare of the German state television and the attached corporate and state media are hypocritical whining about the wounded and great German correspondent Armbruster. The whining, mixed with propaganda, on the websites of several German media agencies like ARD and ZDF is unbearable.
The German correspondent and war promoter Jörg Armbruster was and is always one of the leading “embedded” war propagandists. Not only in Syria and Libya, but also in Egypt. Armbruster was always on the side of the aggressors. One good example of his lies is the moment when Armbruster blamed the troops of the former Libyan leader Gaddafi (Qaddafi) for a massacre, although the armed terrorists and Islamists of NATO were guilty for this massacre in Libya. But that´s the way Armbruster worked and works – as long as he was and is able to serve the NATO propaganda.

This correspondent from Germany is also one of these so-called journalists who is a huge fan of the Muslim Brotherhood. When he stayed in the Egyptian capital Cairo, he was sometimes seen with some figures of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood having dinner.
The Muslim Brotherhood, corrupt to the bones and always trying to misuse Islam for political goals, are currently considered as an organisation which probably should be forbidden by the Egyptian Supreme Judge. In the Emirates, the Muslim Brotherhood is on trial for conspiracy. In Syria? The Muslim Brotherhood is guilty for many crimes already. And so on. There are no “moderate Islamists”. This new name for the heads of the rotten Muslim Brotherhood is just an invention by such biased correspondents like the German Jörg Armbruster.
He was treated in Turkey and then flown back to Germany after he was injured in crossfire while he tried to make another propaganda-documentary about the “Arab Spring” – including Syria, of course.
Some might wonder who has actually issued him the visa for Syria and how great must the indoctrination be when a pensioner still risks his life for NATO propaganda? But the second question might be easy to answer; as said, he has always been a careerist who stops at nothing. The first question? The usual problems in and about Syria.
