The Syria Strikes: A Conspiracy Theory

04/14/201765 Comments

On the morning of April 4th 2017, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, on the verge of a military victory against the terrorist insurgency in his country and on the eve of peace talks that would secure his position as president, decided to use chemical weapons he didn’t have against a target of no military significance in front of as many cameras as possible to cross the one red line that would insure his own government’s downfall.

Soon after, the Academy Award-winning White Helmets–noted for their Oscar-worthy performances, persistent proximity to Al Qaeda, and financial dependence on USAID–bravely risked their lives, handling Sarin victims barehanded against every protocol in the book.

Without presenting a shred of evidence, President Donald Trump boldly launched a military strike against Shayrat airfield because “national security interest,” promising to help the “beautiful children” (*offer does not apply to babies in Gaza, Yemen, Pakistan, or basically anywhere else).

That military strike, a volley of 59 Tomahawk land attack missiles of which 23 actually made it to their target, failed to take out a single runway or even keep the airbase from operating for even 24 hours, but was a complete success for ExxonMobil, Raytheon and Donald Trump.

No one could question the wisdom of striking Syria (except Donald Trump). And no one could oppose such a move (except Russia).

The Trump Train, still convinced by candidate Trump (“dropping bombs on Assad” and “look what happened after Gaddafi“)  concluded that this was 7th dimensional backgammon to make China afraid of the US’ willingness to spend $100 million in a fearsome show of failing to destroy a single airfield.

Throughout the world people rejoice as a horrible secular regime in the Middle East is replaced by yet another peace-loving band of ragtag human rights campaigners and child beheaders motivated by a desire to subdue the armies of Rome in an apocalyptic confrontation in Dabiq. (*actual ISIS belief)

The chemicals for the previous “red line” attack in Syria have since been proven to come from Libya with US approval, but that’s probably not relevant to this case.

The CIA has released declassified report after declassified report showing that the plan to topple Syria’s government has been in the works for decades, but this just shows that they were right all along.

The mainstream media unquestioningly asserts that the story is true because the US government says so, but that’s OK because we all know the msm is full of unbiased truthtellers and dig hard to get the raw facts on every story. (“beauty of our weapons“)

Even members of congress think the story is a load of hogwash, but that’s OK because they’re probably crazy.

Meanwhile the White House has released a report on its intelligence about the chemical attack that refutes its own version of the story, but that’s OK because when has the White House ever lied people into war?

This man doesn’t exist, and if you think he does you’re an enemy of humanity who should apologize for having been born. Likewise him, her, her, him and him. And him and her.

This is the 100% true story of the #SyriaStrikes, and if you support sites like The Corbett Report that question it in any way you are a moonbeam fake news tyrant-loving hippy pinko Russian agent and should commit ritual suicide immediately.

If you love your country and/or liberty, NASCAR, supermodels, TV, water slides or your mother you will not question this story in any way. Ever.

        I’ll repost my comment to that video here:

        IMO you can’t debunk facts by using the very same facts, like the supposed missile count. We can’t be certain of the number of missiles launched, nor what were their targets, nor how many hit these supposed targets.

        Generally, I think you’re biased toward Trump and that’s affecting your analysis. Also, you are prononucing Ivanka incorrectly lol it doesn’t sound like Willy Wonka. I can’t draw a comparison since no word in English I’m aware of sounds similar.

        You need to realize that if anyone’s affecting Trump’s decisions from his close circuit, it would be his daughter and if she’s doing so, it probably isn’t through teenage tantrums, but through blood chilling fear. Tiffany’s husband is close to crazy gramps Benjy and I don’t even want to speculate on possible scenarios there but these people are 100% certified insane. Mossad issues threats to people in power as a scout would sell cookies to kids; effortlessly.

        The “reevaluate currency” thing is no positive outcome, when that shit hits the fan, consequences are going to linger on for generations. Trump or anyone else can’t just reintroduce the gold standard and make things AOK, there’s so much paper floating around and SO MUCH more digital currency in form of debt that petrodollar would tank a millisecond. To bind to gold, this paper needs to have some value, otherwise you’re inviting a catastrophe. Similar goes for the British pound.

        Another point to consider: how much gold (real gold, not paper futures) do the US and UK own currently? China, Russia and India have massive state and private gold positions and no matter how you spin it, these countries are opponents of the western axis. Do you really want to introduce the gold standard if your vaults are empty? I don’t think you do.

        I would also like to mention that even if the gold standard was introduced and it didn’t break the western monetary system, I don’t think it would fix what’s so much wrong with our monetary and economic systems. Bankers know how to control the gold supply, just like they control the paper supply. As long as there’s usury, they’ll be the master and we’ll be the slaves.

    Great work as always James. The one part I say to people that receives either a blank stare response or the um, um, um response has to do with “offer does apply to babies in Gaza, Yemen, or Pakistan”. The hypocrisy of the US govt knows no shame or boundaries.

  4. Sonex says:

    Excellent! I’ve already emailed the link to most people in my address book.

    • Sonex says:

      Here’s a reply:

      Some rapid talk misinformation in that adding to the confusion and ignorance.

      When I first heard about the Syria strike my first thought was 59 Tomahawk missiles @ $1 million each and I own Ratheon stock!

      Two things immediately caught my attention.

      1) The evidence shows that Syria still has chemical weapons and it is impossible to verify that they do not. The video states they don’t. How do they know for sure? Really? They state it as a matter of fact counting on no one questioning it.

      2) They failed to mention that the military doesn’t plan to replace those Tomahawk missiles. Tomahawks are a great weapon, but they are thirty year old technology. So Raytheon and others will not be benefiting from the strike.

      Those are just two things I happened to know that were wrong.

      All of these commentaries and news outlets count on ignorance because it is impossible for the average person, (even you or me) to have the expert total knowledge and sources to know and fact check everything thrown at us. Too much frenzy, spin and drama in the world.

      • BuddhaForce says:

        Navy says its buying 100 more tomahawks this year, before upgrading the arsenal and beginning development on next-gen system.

        https://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2017-04-07/tomahawk-launches-practiced-by-u-s-before-trump-gave-go-ahead

      • mkey says:

        1. What evidence would that be? Is it maybe provided by completely discredited White Helmets? I won’t even divulge into the logical fallacy of having someone prove a negative. The burden of proof rest soleley on the accuser.

        In 2013, after Putin swooped in and picked up the fumble, under the international monitoring body and with their confirmation Syria got rid of sarin gas stocks and sarin gas production facilities.

        To that effect (I think on pollitico, the link is in these comments somewhere) an article was written at the time stating Assad has no more sarin gas, which later, when all of this began, was deleted. As not to cause confusion, of course.

        It’s impossible for you and I to prove some country or the other doesn’t have something or the other. Most western countries are packed with this stuff, what does one think who supplied it to the middle east in the first place?

        Motives, however, are easily discerned in this case.

        2. even if Raytheon didn’t supply any more tomahawks, the fact is old stocks need to go before new stocks can be amassed. The mere fact Raytheon stocks went up a few percent after this fiasco speaks volumes to that effect.

    It is awesome – but just to plug two people’s names who did not make the video – would have liked to see Tulsi Gabbard and/or Dennis Kucinich in the “him him her & him” segment … but that is nitpicking and again more of giving a shout out to the two of them and showing them support.

    The MSM is attacking them of course – esp Tulsi. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1oECQ6r6do

    She is making the rounds on MSM and making people like Wolf Blitzer look silly (ok – that is a low bar): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSD4tpNazlk

  9. HomeRemedySupply says:

    James, Bad link on ( beauty of our weapons ), which is probably the “Brian Williams Describes Syrian Missile Strike” as you have in your video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkj9UCHO0Tc&feature=youtu.be&t=2m33s
    So, it is no big deal.

    By the way, the references are superb! I ran through all the links.

  10. mkey says:

    What’s best about these short videos is the fact they should speak well to the meme-ridden-5-minute-attention-span generation. If you plant the seed, something may sprout.

    • Exactly!!!

      Which is why, I believe, if anything James Corbett does, his most viewed short pieces (like this one) should get the most production value, because people are shallow, stupid, and looks matter (sometimes). This is your best chance where you “hook” them.

      Even if he wanted to Trump can’t dress like a hippie or in a tracksuit or jeans – or whatever – he has to obediently wear the expected symbolic leash of a necktie everywhere.

  11. Greg Bacon says:

    None of this madness is going to change until the American people rise up and demand a major change, even if that involves a repeat of 1776.

    Unhinged homicidal maniacs are at all levels in the USG. When one group of blood-thirsty lunatics are voted out, they join their fellow psychos at some think tank and the crazies that had been resting at the think tank then go into the new President’s administration.

    DC is rotten to the core and there’s only ONE way to root out that kind of corruption and it isn’t easy, fun or safe.

    This hackneyed story works over and over and over – incubator babies, “beautiful babies”, with such perfection; it’s stunning. The story is just a week old and already it is gone, done, and the same routine can be used this week, is being use this week for N. Korea.

    How can history be so easily discarded? So soon? I think these events have become within the realm of the religious, belief, dogma, orthodoxy.

    But, those who know the fraud keep going over the “facts” again and again and again. I think the “facts” re-enforce the tenants of “faith”.

    Great work James – ridicule is as good a weapon as there is to help shine the light of truth on these events. I opened up a twitter account for, amongst other reasons, the purpose of spreading information like this.

    Congratulations and keep going my friend.

  18. herrqlys says:

    There is just so much copy out there on Trump and the Syrian attacks. So many articles, and so little time. It starts becoming like placer mining, where you sift a lot of river bed looking for a few flakes of gold.

    Yet, there are very large issues embedded in the current stream of events, and you just never know when you might encounter some ideas that start to connect the dots.

    I hadn’t been to the commondreams.org site before, but I got there by surfing the wave. There was some additional material for review. Not startling perhaps, but possibly interesting.

    “War may be the force that gives us meaning. But it is also the force that keeps us entertained and distracted. With an entertainer-in-chief in the White House, someone for whom the presidency is a great vanity, that should scare us.”

    https://www.commondreams.org/views/2017/04/13/why-trump-was-able-sucker-world-syria

    And Bill Moyers also had some well-worked prose:

    “…six weeks ago — Feb. 28, to be exact. Donald Trump spoke to a joint session of Congress. He paused, pointed to the balcony and recognized the widow of the Navy SEAL who was killed during a raid on an alleged terrorist compound in Yemen, the very first military mission dispatched into harm’s way by the brand-new commander-in-chief himself.

    That mission went badly, so much so that at least two dozen local civilians, including women and children, were killed. Trump did not mention them. He focused on honoring the grieving widow in the balcony who was trying, unsuccessfully, to hold back her tears as wave after wave of applause rolled across the House chamber and ricocheted from wall to wall.”

    https://www.commondreams.org/views/2017/04/14/ask-yourself-will-donald-trump-ever-become-president

    This last link from commondreams.org seemed the least relevent, but then I thought about it some more.

    “The Pentagon gave a controversial UK PR firm over half a billion dollars to run a top secret propaganda programme in Iraq…”

    “The aim of Bell Pottinger’s work in Iraq was to highlight al Qaeda’s senseless violence…”

    https://www.commondreams.org/news/2016/10/02/fake-news-false-flags-how-pentagon-paid-british-pr-firm-500-million-top-secret-iraq

    After the Twin Towers were brought down in 2001 and that perfidy was blamed on Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda, you may ask “precisely who needed to be convinced of al Qaeda’s senseless violence”?

    And be convinced at a contract cost running way past the indicated $500 million, when you consider the entire period from March 2004 until December 2011. Albeit the earliest work was geared towards the promotion of democratic elections in Iraq.

    Well, perhaps the Iraqi public needed to be dissuaded against aiding and abetting insurrection? Perhaps. Maybe former theatre commander David Petraeus could enlighten the American public. Or then Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld. Or maybe it’s just another known unknown of the whole Iraqi fiasco.

    But something else piques the curiosity. Bell Pottinger’s work in Iraq ended in 2011 with the withdrawal of most American forces at the time. It does make you wonder just who might have been awarded a contract for, say, highlighting the senseless violence of Islamic State in Syria? The Assad regime-change project reignited fully blown in 2011.

    What a world we live in.

  19. 911Theorys says:

    I think you need to slow down and take a breath, whats with the super speedy talk. No need.

  20. Even as a huge Corbett Report fan, I’m sad to say, I love satire but I don’t love this one.

    It’s too confusing and too fast, even at normal speed (I usually watch at 1.3 to 1.7 times normal speed – like reading).

    In fact, as is, as much as I really want to, I don’t think I’ll share this with my Mom who really needs de-brainwashing.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      That is what the transcripts with references are for. Part of the tone in Corbett’s “a conspiracy theory” series ( https://www.corbettreport.com/syriastrikes/#comment-37857 ) is the rapid-fire pace. It works well. Hopefully, people will click to the transcripts and references. His videos have the prompts. Most people will watch them several times just to digest some of the aspects.

      Even a new unaware person who does not click on the reference links recognizes that there is definitely a cover-up…that many of the things in the video they were never told by MainStreamMedia.

      If his videos were slow and tediously full of information explaining all the points, it would end up being over an hour. The humor would fall flat.

      Humor is a universal language. It always opens the door to receiving more communication.

      To me, this series is superb marketing strategy.
      I could make a long list on “why”.

      9/11: A Conspiracy Theory is close to 3 million views!
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuC_4mGTs98

      I am an expert on 9/11, having followed the 9/11 forums daily for over 10 years. (Example – http://911blogger.com/news/2017-04-09/syriastrikes-open-source-investigation-corbett-reports )
      Yet, I also have to refer to Corbett’s transcript source links about 9/11.

      • mkey says:

        Some people may find it too fast for comprehension, but that’s exactly the point. It’s like a brain teaser, people go all “what’s this baldy on about, lemme click some of these links” and maybe one in a hundred flexes a brain cell.

      • I agree with everything HomeRemedySupply says. However, my limited subjective opinion is that this one failed, where the other ones succeeded.

        Many of the images were very funny indeed, but unless seen it before as a meme, I had to pause just to figure out what the cartoon was about.

        I could be wrong, but I think most people who saw the other short spoofs were already very familiar with 9/11 and had likely been exposed to the alternative narratives of Sandy Hook, Boston, and OKC – whch of course would make comprehension of this comedy bit much much easier.

        Considering that the event is so fresh and there’s sooo much misinformation, confusion, and perpetual mahem only makes it more difficult to wrap one’s head around. Parodying the election with Russian hacks and warmongering might have been easier and clearer.

        This campaign is important. I don’t think selling yourself as a cheap crude video conspiracy nut is the best approach. The media makes enough fun of conspiracy analysts as is. We don’t need to appeal to the Jackass fans or fine art snobs. There’s lots of alternatives.

        I hope I’m wrong and this one wakes up more sheeple.

        Just because I’m not thrilled about this one doesn’t mean I don’t want more. Bring em on.

  21. Octium says:

    Great Stuff!

    Although I haven’t spoken to many people it does seem that not many of them are buying into the narrative that the Syrian government gassed their own people (Well at least they are not just accepting it without question)

    It is certainly not going down as well the whole weapons of mass destruction in Iraq propaganda.

    Even the main Trump camp (Infowars) has had to Dump the Trump for the moment because of the embarrassment he has become.

    The only problem is that while many people seem awake – it seems that there is little action, perhaps they feel there is little they can do?

    • mkey says:

      Queue in pitchforks and torches.

    • herrqlys says:

      Octium I don’t have an original comment to your observation “while many people seem awake – it seems that there is little action”, but I have fleshed out one of my recent “finds” during personal education. I actually stumbled across this pithy idea while scrolling through what are usually acerbic nothings in YouTube comments:

      Q: In your estimation, when was it that America was a democracy and when did they stop being a democracy?

      A: Our democracy has been under serious attack since Reagan’s Revolution against democracy. GWBush actually dismantled the entire infrastructure for our democracy during his terms in office.

      The final nails in the coffin were:

      1. Millennial generation coming of age
      http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/03/20/a-wider-partisan-and-ideological-gap-between-younger-older-generations/
      2. Citizens United
      http://reclaimdemocracy.org/who-are-citizens-united/

      Citizens United, a right-wing Washington DC public action committee, was formed in 1988 with major funding from the Koch brothers. Citizens United was plaintiff in a 2008 US Supreme Court case about election spending, and sought the elimination of some restrictions on how corporations can spend money in elections .

      The Millennial generation was actually raised in opposition to everything that had been figured out about child rearing over thousands of years, and everything that has been figured out through Developmental Psychology. Their apathetic attitude to political action was created because of obviously successful propaganda campaigns.

      Millennials did not stand up and do their civic duty to protest against the Citizens United campaign for unfettered corporate donations in elections. They never fought against any of the dismantling, and it all happened under their watch. They were the largest generation in American history, and most of them can be literally classified as fascists.

      Democracies have requirements. If you’d been taught Civics in school, then you would be able to see when the rightwing is attacking something that is fundamental to democracy. You shouldn’t need anyone to explain these things to you. It was your civic duty to educate yourself and stay informed. You only get to keep a democracy as long as you defeat the Right. Period.

      Now, Millennials have aged out, and another generation is coming of age. Millennials have no legacy for their generation. They’ve made no positive change in their decade of milquetoast revolution. They bowed to the establishment and submitted. They have nothing to show for themselves. Nothing.

      GenerationX was perhaps the smallest generation in American history and, thus, never had the electoral demographics to combat the Baby Boomers, who for the most part are those currently in power. But, GenX did more in a year than Millennials accomplished in their decade. When the people refuse to stand up, the Right wins.

      Don’t ask me questions that you should be able to answer yourself. If you can’t answer a question, then go to the library. Tell the librarian to give you a book suggestion. The things you need to know can’t be fully posted in a comment section. It’s years of education that you should have had before graduating high school. Every child is supposed to graduate with enough knowledge to understand what in the hell they’re voting for.

      • krimsomking says:

        As an older millenial I totally see your point, but looking at the younger people in my generation they never stood a chance with constant Tv.,video games, social media ect.ect. Plus I think these different “generations” they put us in are only there to create more and more divisions between us peasants.

        • herrqlys says:

          And I see your point, too, krimsomking and it is one I also have firsthand observations of. Kids stopped doing things with their friends, particularly outside, where they could be just normal, active and inquisitive kids.

          The promotion of cocooning (stay home and watch TV, etc,) was another trendy idea that sought to keep people separated, and thereby unable to share and discuss ideas of import, face-to-face, with others in the community.

          We’re supposed to take sides, generationally or not, in identity issues as opposed to political/financial issues.

          While we’re frothing and spitting about LBGT bathroom rights, etc. we’re distracted from having strong opinions about Wall Street fraud, political corruption, and an obscene foreign policy.

          Meanwhile, the fascist police state quietly slides into place, and the anti-war movement is effectively dissipated.

    I would like to see people promote the Corbett Report 4 minute video “The Syria Strikes: A Conspiracy Theory” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkj9UCHO0Tc in the comment sections of news organizations in the U.S. and around the world.
    This is a way to help wake people up.

    In the “total non-surprise” category for Corbeteers is the following article, which was written in the early days after the Idlib chemical attack allegations:

    https://off-guardian.org/2017/04/06/media-goes-quiet-as-russia-exposes-us-lies-at-security-council/

    This is why (honourable and diligent) historians are so valuable to society, as the sum of all material on a subject can be reviewed and analyzed when a large body of work is available for review.

    Following one of the serendipitous threads from that “media goes quiet” page, I viewed a video just uploaded to YouTube today:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFJzRGeu4tQ

    This is a 10 minute video, but the more interesting content can be seen in the clips at
    4:21 Ex-MI5 officer on Mossad false flags
    8:12 Donald Trump on Israel, during the campaign trail
    Trump: “…we will support Israel one thousand percent…and we will support Israel beyond everything they have ever had before…” and much more.

    The Donald also proudly admits that “I know Bibi” (Israeii prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu). Bibi has known Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner since Kushner was a child? Who knew?

    Given what we now know about Genie Oil and Gas, for example, and the plan for a Greater Israel (Oded Yinon srategy), it is interesting to observe the dynamics of what the Trump administration is doing.

    It is also alarming that Trump has handed military decision making to the generals – he admitted this himself recently. Secretary of Defence Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis has US troops straining on the leash in Jordan as I type this. Their primary objective would be Damascus.

    Added to this, all the fake news doesn’t originate with the corporate media; the Pentagon has been hard at work, too:

    “The Pentagon is investigating the possibility that Russia actually participated in the chemical weapons attack, and/or the bombing of a hospital where victims were receiving treatment afterward.”
    http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2017/04/11/putin-syria-chemical-attack-was-false-flag-more-provocations-are-coming/

    That’s new to me: Russian Aerospace Forces bombed the Khan Sheikhoun hospital???

    The above section on the Pentagon’s weighing in was written 4 days after a more detailed account:
    http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2017/04/07/pentagon-russia-may-have-directly-participated-in-syrian-chemical-weapons-attack/

    The chemical “incident” at Khan Sheikhoun, Idlib and the follow-up USN cruise missile strike on the Al-Shayrat airbase, may be getting Israel more unintended public interest than they would like.

    Where is the anti-war movement in the United States of America???

      Charles, you didn’t read what I wrote closely enough, I guess. From the top I said I didn’t have an “original” comment, and that I had fleshed-out the YouTube comment.

      I posted the comments because I do agree with what the commentator was saying, and I liked the way he explained the matter (i.e. good answer).

      But please answer a question of my own: precisely why would a view posted on YouTube be categorically nonsensical? As opposed, say, to Judith Miller’s articles in the New York Times so many trillions of dollars ago?

        herrqlys, thank you for the reply.
        To answer your question first – “why would a view posted on YouTube be categorically nonsensical?”
        If a nonsensical view was posted on YouTube then it would be nonsensical. Regardless of the category and regardless of Judith Miller or the New York Times.

        The question – “In your estimation, when was it that America was a democracy and when did they stop being a democracy?” is nonsensical.

        The US was never founded as, nor was it ever intended to be a democracy. For good reason – democracy doesn’t work. It never did, it never will. Democracy is the antithesis of personal freedom, it cannot tolerate the US constitution which protects the freedom of the individual.

        There are two ‘democracies’. The objectively defined democracy which sucks at the teats of it’s mother sow, collectivism, alongside it’s siblings, communism, socialism and democratic socialism and there is democracy the vague, romantic idea that is the lipstick smeared across the face of this pig.

        The originator of the post seems centered on the vague, undefined, romantic idea of democracy in the US with little to no idea of what the constitution of the US or democracy actually is. Which is nonsense.

    I know, I know, Facebook is the devil. But – I saw this video on my news feed yesterday from someone that I don’t know commending how great it was. One of my friends had commented on it and they were in a civil discussion about what’s fake-or-not with various media stories.

    These short videos serve their purpose well, regardless of platform. Well done, Mr. Corbett.
