(HigginsBlog) – US military chief Leon Panetta has blood on his hands for helping Syria’s rebels prepare the the Aleppo false flag that he tells the media will be ‘the final nail in President Assad’s coffin’.
The US military chief Leon Panetta is warning that the impending false flag massacre in Syria’s largest city of Aleppo will ultimately be ‘a nail in President Assad’s coffin’.
There is little doubt that the ‘massacre’ is will be a false-flag attack because the media has been repeatedly warning about a massacre in Aleppo being imminent.
Here’s a sample of the propaganda from Google NEWS:
- Middle East Online – 1 day agoAn activist who gave his name as Abu Alaa said there was renewed shelling of the Salaheddin district in southwest Aleppo where rebels …
- Telegraph.co.uk – 2 days ago
- Times of India – 2 days ago
3 days ago – Top news: The U.S. says it fears a “massacre” may be imminent in the Syrian city of Aleppo, as reports indicate tank units are heading for the …
REALLY? How would they know such a massacre is imminent unless shady figures within the US government have given orders to stage such an event.
In fact there is plenty of evidence such the framework to stage such an even is already underway.
Take the reports of NATO’s terrorists openly executing civilians in the streets while waiting for the army to arrive.
NATO-backed militants execute civilians on praying on the streets as they await impending battle in Aleppo, Syria.
For many months, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has depicted the militants creating havoc across his nation as “armed gangs,” “foreign terrorists,” and simply just, “terrorists.” During a 2011 interview in Damascuswith Barbra Walters, Walters feigned indignation when hearing these labels, insisting that these were people simply seeking “democracy” and “freedom.”
It turns out months later, it was President Assad who has been vindicated, and Walters’ disrespectful, curt condemnation exposed as the same brand of war propaganda that has mired the West in over a decade of ceaseless, bloody, bankrupting wars and interventions.
The FSA are Terrorists
AFP now reports that the so-called “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) militants who had attempted to overrun the city of Aleppo in Syria’s north on July 17, in coordination with an assassination bombing and a similar militant attack on Damascus, are now trapped in the city center, awaiting Syrian Army reinforcements expected to close in and neutralize them. An AFP correspondent embedded with the terrorists reported that, “two men, accused of belonging to pro-government “shabiha” militia, were
summarily dispatched in the street, each with a bullet to the head.”
By this of course AFP means, two civilians were rounded up and shot in the head – killed in cold blood in the streets.
BBC’s Ian Pannell also rode in with FSA terrorists during the initial attack on Aleppo, which is by all accounts a pro-Army, pro-Syrian city. Pannell described scenes of FSA militants “seeking revenge” as they too rounded up men “suspected” of being “shabiha.” The men were unarmed, terrified, and had weapons discharged at their feet as they knelt on the ground. Pannell doesn’t tell us if this group of men were “dispatched” as well, preferring to paper over what appeared to be an atrocity in the making by stating, “there is little justice on either side.”
It appears the term suspected “shabiha” has become analogous of the Western media’s use of the term “African mercenaries” in Libya during NATO destabilization and regime change operations there last year. These “African mercenaries” were lynched, beheaded, shot, burned, and hacked to pieces, just as the FSA is now doing to suspected “shabiha.”
Photo: Images and reports eventually trickled out as NATO-backed genocide unfolded throughout Tripoli’s streets, indicating the destruction of infrastructure and the specific targeting of black Libyans written off by the corporate media as “suspected mercenaries.” Benghazi rebels have been long reported to harbor extremist ideologies and an intense ethnic & racial hatred.
It would later turn out these black Africans were not mercenaries, but citizens who had lived in Libya for generations fighting desperately for their lives against sectarian extremists intolerant of their complexion and creed. Likewise, suspected “shabiha” are Syrians unwilling or unable, because of their ethnicity or creed, to capitulate to roving bands of foreign-armed sectarian extremists.
The FSA Include Foreign-Fighters
CNN, whose Ivan Watson also accompanied FSA terrorists over the Turkish-Syrian border and into Aleppo revealed that indeed foreign fighters were amongst the militants. It was admitted that:Meanwhile, residents of the village where the Syrian Falcons were headquartered said there were fighters of several North African nationalities also serving with the brigade’s ranks.A volunteer Libyan fighter has also told CNN he intends to travel from Turkey to Syria within days to add a “platoon” of Libyan fighters to armed movement.
On Wednesday, CNN’s crew met a Libyan fighter who had crossed into Syria from Turkey with four other Libyans. The fighter wore full camouflage and was carrying a Kalashnikov rifle. He said more Libyan fighters were on the way.
The foreign fighters, some of them are clearly drawn because they see this as … a jihad. So this is a magnet for jihadists who see this as a fight for Sunni Muslims.
CNN’s reports provide bookends to earlier admissions that large numbers of Libyan terrorists flush with NATO cash and weapons had headed to Syria with known terrorist commanders making the arrangements.
Western Media is Complicit in Covering Up War Crimes
Not only are these FSA militants committing atrocities, they are doing so in front of representatives of Western media, who are demonstratively excusing, covering up, or downplaying their war crimes. Additionally, these media personalities are attempting to downplay the significant implications of foreign-fighters crossing Syria’s borders and conducting armed attacks on a heavily populated city – implications that run contra to the West’s narrative regarding their support of the FSA against the Syrian state.
By doing so they’ve become accomplices, providing impunity for the actions of terrorists, and allowing the governments of the United States, Britain, France, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, an ignoble alliance, to continue fueling this violent, foreign-contrived band of militants. And by doing so, these media representatives have undermined their journalistic immunity, putting the lives of real journalists the world over at risk.
Libyan chemical weapons brought in through Turkey, caches discovered in Damascus and NATO backed militants seen wearing gas masks point to possible false flag.
Syrians: NATO-backed Militants Seen Donning Gas Masks
For a Western media so fond of reporting “activist” accounts, rumors, and even fabrications, and with all the talk of an impending “massacre” in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo, reports of so-called “Free Syrian Army” militants seen trying on gas masks, along with reports of Libyan chemical weapon caches & equipment being discovered in Damascus is surely headline news.

(Bottom) Chemical weapons and equipment from Libya have been reportedly discovered as troops search areas of Damascus after quelling last week’s militant attack.….
Many Syrians and outside observers alike, fear that militants may deploy chemical weapons in one or more locations around Syria, creating a mass-casualty event to subsequently be blamed on the government by a coordinated Western media disinformation campaign. The so-called “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) has already been conducting strings of devastating, indiscriminate mass-casualty bombings across the country, as reported by Reuters’, “Outgunned Syria rebels make shift to bombs.”
Libyan weapons, cash, and fighters have also all been confirmed to have made it into Syria in an effort to undermine, divide and destroy Syria.

NATO Terrorists Come to Overrun, Not “Liberate,” Aleppo.
by Tony Cartalucci
July 25, 2012 – A pivotal conflict is unfolding in northern Syria in the city of Aleppo – one told with two narratives. For the Western media, speaking on behalf of US foreign policy and the corporate-financier interests behind both their “journalism” and the subversion of Syria, the “Battle for Aleppo” constitutes brave “pro-democracy” fighters rising up in the streets of the ancient city to do battle with invading “regime thugs.” This despite a year and a half of reporting Aleppo as admittedly a pro-government bastion.
An Invasion, Not an Uprising
The second narrative is discerned not from official Syrian government talking points, but from a more critical examination of the Western media’s own reports, which exposes what is instead, indeed a pro-Syrian Army, pro-Syria city being overrun by so-called “Free Syrian Army” militants pouring in from two specific points – Aleppo’s northeast facing Azaz, and Aleppo’s northwest facing Bab al-Hawa. Militants emanating from these directions come from areas directly across from the Turkish border.
We know this, because BBC and other Western networks rode in with the militants on their way to Aleppo. One report, by BBC’s Ian Pannell, describes how he came in on just such a convoy. Clearly, these are not “sons of Aleppo” rising up.
The offensive was coordinated with an assassination bombing and a similar militant assault on Damascus – timed so closely with the UN Security Council vote, the vote was pushed back a day only to be vetoed by Russia and China, with Pakistan and South Africa abstaining in protest of the US-UK backed resolution.
It appears that the operation in Damascus was expected to last longer and cause more chaos amongst the ranks of the Syrian military. It also looks like a large psychological operation planned by NATO was attempted, but failed, or pushed back at the very least – one involving the seizing of Syrian broadcasting and replacing it with false reports of the government’s imminent demise. The lightning fast defeat of FSA militants in Damascus lent the Syrian people and their army a morale boost, instead of the psychological defeat NATO had intended to deal.
With Damascus secured and slowly returning back to normal, all eyes have fixated on Aleppo. The Western media is now portraying security operations in the city as “brutal” with verified lies of “Russian-made MIGs” “bombing” civilian populations being spread. With FSA militants seemingly trapped in the center of the city, and with the Syrian Army allegedly bringing in reinforcements, the Western media has attempted to portray what was a militant infiltration of the city, as instead, an invasion of Syrian military forces against “city defenders.”
How to “Liberate” a Pro-Army, Pro-Syrian City – Use Terrorism, Brutality, Intimidation
Also discerned from the Western media’s own reports is just how the FSA is trying to “liberate” Aleppo. BBC’s Ian Pannell claims militants are attempting to “extend their control” while “seeking revenge.” His narrative is accompanied by video footage of FSA militants rounding up what he claims are “suspected shabiha,” kicking them and firing weapons at their feet. The fate of these unarmed, terrorized men is never revealed by BBC, and Pannell excuses the FSA’s behavior by claiming, “there is little justice on either side.”
Image: From BBC’s Ian Pannell – young men “suspected” of being “Shabiha” are rounded up as the FSA “seeks revenge.” BBC fails categorically to explain how NATO-backed terrorists can “liberate” a city that is admittedly pro-government – but it appears it will be done through terrorism, brutality, mass murder, and intimidation.….
CNN also adds inadvertently contradictory facts to their fallacious narrative. In an article titled, “Faces of the Free Syrian Army,” we are treated with a grossly unsubstantiated narrative, seemingly meant to counter evidence reported on by outlets such as French intellectual Thierry Meyssan’s VoltaireNet. VoltaireNet’s article, “Who is Fighting in Syria?” reveals that the FSA’s ranks consist of mostly radicalized gangs, many not even Syrian. Further more, the article points out that the Syrian Army is conscripted from amongst the nation’s citizens. It is a “people’s army.”
Now Leon Panetta is currently on a Middle East tour brief US puppet governments with the official story to be used to push for Assad’s departure and the propaganda about an Aleppo Massacre is his main talking point.
RT spoke to Michel Chossudovsky from the Centre for Research on Globalization.
He believes there are indications that NATO states may soon move from war mongering against the Syrian regime to real action.
