Report: Assad moving human shields to possible target sites in Syria

Embattled Syrian President Bashar Assad is moving prisoners taken by the regime to military sites across the country that could be targeted by U.S. forces

Buses reportedly filled with Syrian prisoners streamed from facilities in Damascus toward the Mezzeh airbase to the south of the city, according to recent reports.

Mezzeh airbase is likely one of the key military targets U.S. military and intelligence officials have tagged for missile strikes in the country.

The move is a possible sign that Assad is planning to use human shields as a way to deter American warships from launching missile strikes against vital military installations in the country.

Saudi Arabia Goes to To DefCon 2

The UK may be out, but Saudi Arabia isn’t taking any chances. Moments ago, Reuters reported that the regime which as we reportedis behind the entire conflict in Syria (hint: nat gas) has raised its level of military alertness in anticipation of a possible Western strike in Syria, sources familiar with the matter said on Friday.  Saudi Arabia’s defense readiness, their version of DefCon, has been raised to “two” from “five”, a Saudi military source who declined to be named told Reuters. “One” is the highest level of alert. “It is a must, no one knows what will happen,” he said. And so all those who thought there would be no war and sold off gold and crude, are suddenly caught short. More curious is why Saudi is leaking this information to the media: another provocation, and an attempt to accelerate a conflict which is rapidly fizzling? Remember: for Saudi Arabia “no war” is the worst possible outcome. If so, expect more mysterious “chemical attacks” in the coming hours and days to cement the Western resolve to blow up Assad.

    Do you think the US marine gay men are hunting for Syria’s boys?

    What a perfect false flag it would be if Israel used a missile or torpedo to sink the USS San Antonio! They attacked the USS Liberty in June of 1967, killing 34 Americans, during the Six Day War and tried to make it seem as if Egypt had done it, so the US would attack Egypt, but failed. In 1983, the Marine barracks in Beirut was bombed, killing 241 Americans. Israeli Gen. Ariel Sharon later admitted that he knew the bombing was coming but didn’t warn the Americans (Israel wanted the US to leave Lebanon.) Now, if they use one of their Dolphin-class subs to sink the San Antonio, that should drive the US to attack Syria, which is what they want. Bet they won’t do it? If we make the possibility public enough, they will not.

    Israel and Saudi Arabia, what strange bed fellows along with Turkey, Qatar, Bahrain and others. All willingly putting the pieces in place for the ultimate end game of Israeli dominance in the region, US energy security guaranteed (Why else do the arms deals they have and continue to do with the Saudi’s if not to assure the US of a secure supply?). The UK people and some politicians with actual morals and cojones have slapped Cameron down like a out of control dog. France will chunter along with whoever and whatever benefits them the best, making money at the same time selling weapons and technology to usually both sides in any fight. Here in Australia the bought and paid for Jewish lobby is about to once again gain power by proxy through a rabid Catholic mad monk being the odds on favourite to be the new boss. But just like the last one, the old one, his nose will be so far up Zion’s ass he will have a brown necklace on. Anything, anything at all in the region has one main common theme, what benefits Israel, seek the answer there, they get their dirty work done, the US and other allies get sweet deals for energy, weapons sales, cross training police and military people and all round hard ons for being in the big boys club. So if this all kicks off, I want our people home, and the Russian, Syrian, Iranian and all other countries, including China, to collectively kick the shit out of whoever starts and joins in with this shit.
