Charges by the White House and US secretaries of state and defense Thursday that Syrian government forces used chemical weapons have brought Washington to the brink of another war in the Middle East.
One decade after the Bush administration invoked the infamous pretext of “weapons of mass destruction” to launch a war of aggression against Iraq, the Obama administration is preparing to follow the same route to launch its own war for regime-change in Syria.
White House hints at the use of "Military Force" in Syria ~ link ~ And it was shaping up like your typical boring, noonish "gold-smackdown-so-JPM-can-refill-its-vault" Friday. Trust the White House to come out, guns blazing, false flags waving, and make those selling hard assets into the weekend think twice:
- US PURSUING "DEFINITIVE" EVIDENCE ON SYRIAN CHEMICAL WEAPONS
- WHITE HOUSE SAYS OPTIONS FOR DEALING WITH SYRIA USE OF CHEMICAL WEAPONS INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT EXCLUSIVE TO, MILITARY FORCE
Building a Pretext to Wage War on Syria: As NATO Terror Front Collapses, US Drums Up Familiar WMD Lies ~ link ~ The last two weeks have seen a series of victories for the Syrian Army across Syria. It appears that 2 full companies of so-called “Free Syrian Army” fighters have been annihilated near Damascus, while government forces have restored order in parts of Homs and along the previously porous Lebanese-Syrian border.
Time has run out for the West, and it appears that they are desperately seeking any excuse to rescue their failing proxy war. When urgent, but otherwise unjustified military intervention is needed, a “humanitarian” pretext is usually invented – as it was in Libya.
U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced Thursday that the United States has evidence that chemical weapons have been used in Syria.
Pyongyang has said its military should be prepared to attack “all US military bases in the Asia-Pacific region, including the US mainland, Hawaii, and Guam.”
Meanwhile, Pyongyang has rejected Seoul's call for formal talks about reopening the Kaesong joint industrial complex.
South Korea’s Unification Minister, Ryoo Kihl-jae, has said the country will withdraw all its remaining workers from the complex in order to protect their safety.
South Korea has threatened its neighbor with “grave measures” if Pyongyang turns down its offer of talks.
Instead of panicking and selling their physical gold and silver, private investors have gone on one of the greatest single precious metals buying spree in memory. As reported here , buying demand has surged so dramatically that wholesale brokers and retail dealers on all continents have already or soon will, if this trend continues, exhausted nearly all available inventory.
As this trend continues unabated, another very frightening trend that was first reported several weeks ago, has accelerated at the COMEX and other mega-bank bullion depositories; namely, a giant draw down in warehouse inventories. How gigantic you ask?
