Germans gold repatriation via Mali. Israel at war with Syria?  

(Was Venezualan gold repatriation via Libya?)
The French regime attacking the terrorists and rebels opposing the unpopular Mali military dictatorship.

Is the French intervention in Mali legitimate?
The intervention, of course, is far from legitimate. How can a French military operation in a North African country be legitimate, when not too long ago France undertook what was then called a legitimate intervention in another North African country, Libya, with the opposite aims:
Not to support, but to topple a legitimate government;
Not to stop the spread of radical Islam, but to help radical Islamists, some of them foreign jihadists, strongly connected to terrorist groups like Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, overthrow a legitimate government

In other words, the Mali operation is the very antithesis of the Libyan one. Yet, according to state officials in France, the United States and Britain, along with their jingoist Western mass media cheerleaders, both interventions are legitimate. Where the Mali intervention protects a legitimate government, the Libyan intervention toppled one. Where the Mali operation opposes radical Islamists, the Libyan operation aided them.
It can’t possibly be true that Western governments are against radical Islamists as a matter of principle, when the principal financial and ideological backer of militant Sunni Islamism, Saudi Arabia, is a treasured ally.  Nor can it be true when Western powers backed radical Islamists against:
    The leftist Afghan government in the 1980s,
    Yugoslavia’s social democracy in the 1990s,
    Gaddafi’s economic nationalism in Libya,
    Assad’s secular nationalist government in Syria.

It can’t be true that Western powers are against despots, dictators, and absolutist monarchs, when they’ve backed so many of them in the past, and continue to back them in the present, from the potentates of the Gulf Co-operation Council to the military regime in Mali.
Neither are Western powers committed to backing struggles against tyrannies as struggles against tyrannies. On countless occasions, they’ve either stood idly by as tyrannies repressed democratic rebellions, or energetically aided their autocratic allies’ efforts to crush opposition.

Mali, why now? What is the connection between gold repatriation?

Mali: One war can hide another by Thierry Meyssan
A long time in the making and announced by François Hollande six months in advance, the French intervention in Mali was portrayed as an emergency decision in response to dramatic developments. This scheme aims not only at seizing Mali’s gold and uranium, but more especially at paving the way for the destabilization of Algeria.  voltairenet.org/article177190.html

And from - Burn, burn - Africa's Afghanistan
[...] Muammar Gaddafi always supported the Tuaregs' independence drive; since the 1960s the NMLA agenda has been to liberate Azawad (North Mali) from the central government in Bamako.
After the March 2012 coup, the NMLA seemed to be on top. They planted their own flag on quite a few government buildings, and on April 5 announced the creation of a new, independent Tuareg country. The “international community” spurned them, only for a few months later to have the NMLA for all practical purposes marginalized, even in their own region, by three other – Islamist – groups; Ansar ed-Dine (“Defenders of the Faith”); the Movement for Unity and Jihad in West Africa (MUJAO); and al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM).
Meet the players
The NMLA is a secular Tuareg movement, created in October 2011. It claims that the liberation of Azawad will allow better integration – and development – for all the peoples in the region. Its hardcore fighters are Tuaregs who were former members of Gaddafi’s army.
But there are also rebels who had not laid down their arms after the 2007-2008 Tuareg rebellion, and some that defected from the Malian army. Those who came back to Mali after Gaddafi was executed by the NATO rebels in Libya carried plenty of weapons. Yet most heavy weapons actually ended up with the NATO rebels themselves, the Islamists supported by the West.

Military success in Mali raises fear of sectarian revenge attacks
As French, Malian and troops from other African countries enter the key northern Malian towns of Gao, Timbuktu and Kidal, reports are emerging of revenge attacks against the Islamists and some of the local Tuareg and Arab population. As Malian and French forces closed in and retook Gao last weekend virtually unopposed, residents have been hunting down and beating up suspected Islamist extremists who did not have time to flee into the desert. Malian troops then bundled the suspected terrorists into a truck. Members of a youth militia called the Gao Patrolmen, went house to house hunting for suspected Islamists.

Systems normal. All fkt up - as usual.

Free Syrian Army turns against France
France organized the Free Syrian Army (FSA), going so far as to endow it with its own flag, that of the French Mandate of Syria (1920-1946). She officially provided the FSA with arms and funding, in breach of international treaties. And, unofficially, she flanked it by officers and trainers with the aim of overthrowing the legal and legitimate government. The FSA has devastated the country’s infrastructure and launched major battles that have cost the lives of nearly 60,000 Syrians, yet failed to seize power.
[...] After two years of conducting a secret war, France is now cut off from Syria and jeered by the FSA.

Staying with psychopaths, sociopaths and for "profit, glory and the agenda" nutters running the show -
The [wannabe Greater Israel] Israeli regime thinks nothing of contravening international law and HR by intruding in others' land and airspace to murder and destroy. It has regularly flown drones and jets over Lebanon and elsewhere.

Lebanon reports heavy presence of Israeli jets in airspace
BEIRUT (Reuters) -- Lebanon said on Wednesday Israeli jets had flown over its territory overnight, part of apparently increased air activity which comes as Israel has expressed concern about weapons in neighboring Syria falling out of government control.
A Lebanese army statement said that four Israeli planes entered Lebanese air space at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday. They were replaced four hours later by another group of planes which overflew southern Lebanon until 2 a.m. and a third mission took over, finally leaving at 7:55 a.m. on Wednesday morning.
Lebanon frequently complains that Israeli jets overfly its territory. However the recent activity was much more concentrated than usual.

Why? To provoke a response from Iran after failing to do so with the mini destruction of Gaza?

Israel fighter jets enter Lebanese airspace, hit targets on Syria border
Israeli air force jets reportedly attacked a target on the Syria-Lebanon border after repeatedly violating Lebanese airspace Wednesday night. The Syrian military, however, says the jets targeted a scientific research center near Damascus.
The overnight IAF strike was directed at a weapons convoy traveling from Syria into Lebanon, RT correspondent Paula Slier reported from Israel, citing Lebanese media. The convoy may have been moving anti-aircraft rockets from Syria, Slier added, citing foreign sources who spoke on Israeli TV.
“There was definitely a hit in the border area,” the source told Reuters on condition of anonymity, without elaborating further.
Several squads of Israeli air force jets breached Lebanese airspace overnight, the Lebanese army reported in a statement earlier on Wednesday. The army said that four warplanes flew over the southernmost coastal town of Naqoura and hovered for several hours over villages in southern Lebanon before leaving the country's airspace.
The airstrike came amid Israeli concerns over Syrian chemical arms falling into militants’ hands. The Israel Defense Force refused to confirm or deny the reports. "We do not comment on reports of this kind," an IDF spokesperson said.
Later on Wednesday, the Syrian army’s general command has issued a statement claiming that Israeli warplanes violated Syrian airspace and
launched a direct strike on a military research center in Jamraya, near Damascus.
Over the past week, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of IAF planes sighted in the airspace of Lebanon, which borders Syria. At least 12 jet missions were reported by the Lebanese military.

Possibly 2 strikes then. It sound as if the regime wants the weapons traffic to be one way, into Syria, not out.

'Two killed, five injured in Israeli airstrike on Syrian research center'
The attack was carried out against the center, which was tasked with boosting Syria’s resistance and self-defense, "after terrorist groups made several failed attempts in the past months to take control of the site."
"This assault is one of a long list of acts of aggression and criminality against the Arabs and Muslims," the statement added.
"They... carried out an act of aggression, bombarding the site, causing large-scale material damage and destroying the building," the army said.
The Israeli regime claimed earlier that it had targeted a convoy of chemical weapons in Syria.

Jabhat al-Nusra Terrorists Perpetrate Mass Execution in Aleppo
A media source underlined that terrorist groups of Jabhat al-Nusra in Aleppo carried out a mass execution against tens of abducted persons, throwing their bodies in Queiq river at Bustan al-Qasr area in Aleppo.
"The families have identified a number of the killed, stressing that Jabhat al-Nusra abducted them because of their rejection to cooperate with this terrorist group," the source said in a statement on Tuesday.
It added that the competent authorities along with the families are following evidence on this new massacre which adds to a series of brutal massacres perpetrated by the terrorist groups against unarmed civilians.
Reporter in Aleppo said that clashes between the Syrian armed forces and terrorists in Bustan al-Qasr are taking place in the surroundings of the region, adding "there are no presence for the army on the banks of Queiq river."
The reporter added that the competent authorities earlier put barbed wires along the stream of the river to prevent terrorists from infiltrating into the safe areas .
"The bodies, which terrorists and TV misleading channels have claimed that the army killed their owners, were found in the side where terrorists present.. if they were killed in the safe areas, their bodies would stick to the barbed wires before reaching the region where they were discovered," the reporter said.
She clarified that the height of water in the river is very little and it is stagnant, so it can't carry the bodies along the river.

Syria: Subversion Stalls while Government Succeeds with Reconciliation and Reforms.
A successful subversion of the Syrian government with militants becomes increasingly unlikely. Over the course of the last week the Syrian military forces have inflicted heavy losses on the NATO and GCC backed insurgents. Also a direct military intervention by Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Israel, or any of the NATO member states becomes increasingly unlikely, as Russia and China continue preventing another Libya-style intervention. Russia, Syria and Iran seem successful at conveying that a military aggression against Syria would have catastrophic regional and potentially global consequences. Meanwhile, the Syrian government has not only been very active, but very successful at molding opposition parties reform movements as well as religious and ethnic groups into a coherent and constructive alliance for peace, reconciliation and reform.

In a phone call with SANA reporter, the residents said that the terrorist groups are filming the mass grave to send the footages to the channels involved in shedding the Syrian blood and accuse the Syrian Arab Army of killing innocent civilians.

Israeli Airstrike in Syria and Chemical Weapons False Flag
Israeli officials have said repeatedly they fear Assad losing his grip on his chemical weapons stockpile. But Dr. Ali Mohamad believes the chemical weapons danger was just a pretext to destroy Syria's military research centers to ensure that Damascus can’t produce arms for its military or to ship to its allies in the region.
“Military research centers are responsible for developing weapons in particular land-to-land long range missiles,” he explained. “And what Israel wants is to stop this research and stop this process. And of course Israel will claim that this is connected to a chemical weapons arsenal, but this is of course not true because nobody stores chemical weapons in a research center.”
Everybody who lives in Syria knows “that this is not at all about chemical weapons,” Mohamad said.

Advocates should first move next to Sellafield (previously called Windscale, site of a plutonium accident) and promise to live there and have children for a decade or more. Better still, build a reactor next to the HoP and store the waste in the rat runs and nuclear shelters under the HoP, No 10 and Buck House.

Parallels. Are Cameron the liar and Obama the liar interchangeable?
Obama's Economy: The Excuses Begin
Unlike what occurred after every other post-World War II downturn, not enough new jobs are currently being created to make up for the ones being lost. Why not? At the Associated Press, aka the Administration’s Press, the post-election search for an explanation clearly had two important constraints. First: do not blame the Obama administration or the federal government for anything. Second: find something to blame which appears to be plausible and can’t be immediately refuted.

It continually amazes me how much "benefit of the doubt" mainstream media give to known terrorists that have been proven to be serial atrocity perpetrators. The telegraph a prominent MSM outlet owned by Barclay bros. gives a perfect example where tens of bodies, different accounts give different numbers, were carried into an al nusra terrorist held area by a trickle called a river, the tens of bodies having to negotiate barbed wire that had previously been laid across the trickle to stop terrorists from using the concreted cutting as a route into army protected areas. After negotiating the barbed wire the bodies then had to proceed into the terrorist held area then stop.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/syria/9834260/Aleppo-executions-79-bodies-pulled-from-Syria-river.html
The Syrian MSM tell a far more convincing story. Al nusra murdered them for resisting their orders and blamed the atrocity on the army as usual.
I wonder, when the dust settles whether the SOHR "gentleman" will be prosecuted for aiding terrorists. The same can be asked of many MSM outlets and the UK regime itself.
