The Four Horsemen Gallop By 457

The media onslaught has moved past the attack in Salisbury by a “weapon of mass destruction” (quoting Theresa May) which could only be Russian, except that was untrue, and was extremely deadly, except that was untrue too. It now focuses on an attack by chemical weapons in Douma which “could only be” by the Russian-backed Assad regime, except there is no evidence of that either, and indeed neutral verified evidence from Douma is non-existent. The combination of the two events is supposed to have the British population revved up by jingoism, and indeed does have Tony Blair and assorted Tories revved up, to attack Syria and potentially to enter conflict with Russia in Syria.

The “Russian” attack in Salisbury is supposed to negate the “not our war” argument, particularly as a British policeman was unwell for a while. Precisely what is meant to negate the “why on earth are we entering armed confrontation with a nuclear power” argument, I do not know.

Saudi Arabia has naturally offered facilities to support the UK, US and France in their attempt to turn the military tide in Syria in favour of the Saudi sponsored jihadists whom Assad had come close to defeating. That the Skripal and Douma incidents were preceded by extremely intense diplomatic activity between Saudi Arabia, Washington, Paris and London this year, with multiple top level visits between capitals, is presumably supposed to be coincidence.

I am not a fan of Assad any more than I was a fan of Saddam Hussein. But the public now understand that wars for regime change in Muslim lands have disastrous effects in dead and maimed adults and children and in destroyed infrastructure; our attacks unleash huge refugee waves and directly cause terrorist attacks here at home. There is no purpose in a military attack on Syria other than to attempt to help the jihadists overthrow Assad. There is a reckless disregard for evidence base on the pretexts for all this. Indeed, the more the evidence is scrutinised, the dodgier it seems. Finally there is a massive difference between mainstream media narrative around these events and a deeply sceptical public, as shown in social media and in comments sections of corporate media websites.

The notion that Britain will take part in military action against Syria with neither investigation of the evidence nor a parliamentary vote is worrying indeed. Without Security Council authorisation, any such action is illegal in any event. It is worth noting that the many commentators who attempt to portray Russia’s veto of a Syria resolution as invalid, fail to note that last week, in two separate 14 against 1 votes, the USA vetoed security council resolutions condemning Israeli killings of unarmed demonstrators in Gaza.

The lesson the neo-cons learnt from the Iraq war is not that it was disastrous. It was only disastrous for the dead and maimed Iraqis, our own dead and maimed servicemen, and those whose country was returned to medievalism. It was a great success for the neo-cons, they made loads of money on armaments and oil. The lesson the neo-cons learned was not to give the public in the West any time to mount and organise opposition. Hence the destruction of Libya was predicated on an entirely false “we have 48 hours to prevent the massacre of the population of Benghazi” narrative. Similarly this latest orchestrated “crisis” is being followed through into military action at a blistering pace, as the four horsemen sweep by, scything down reason and justice on the way.

    Let me state here in a short preface that I am certainly not a right-winger, nor a conspiracy theorist, and that I am not familiar with all the work by or speeches given by Udo Ulfkotte, but the interview which you can see and hear on the link below does seem plausible – even if not in 100% of cases – certainly in the run-up to the war which is now brewing.

    Zum Tod des Journalisten Udo Ulfkotte ein RT-Interview.

    It is in English, even though the text at the beginning is in German. It explains much about how the news is managed by the services.

    Here is an excerpt from the Wikipedia entry for Dr. Ulfkotte:
    Udo Ulfkotte (20 January 1960 – 13 January 2017) was a German journalist. He was an assistant editor for a German main daily newspaper, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) for several years until 2003. Between 1997 and his death he published a dozen books, including a number with right-wing populist, Islamophobic and conspiracy theory themes. In articles and books (including his 2014 book, Gekaufte Journalisten (“Bought Journalists”), he has maintained that journalists (including himself) and leading newspapers published material that had been fed to them, or bought, by the CIA and other Western intelligence and propaganda agencies.

    Ulfkotte died from a heart attack on 13 January 2017 at the age of 56.

    Tory Johnny Mercer tweets regarding Syria “…the view of the Commons is important, but must never inhibit our ability to act.”

    So if the action is misguided or criminal who’s going to inhibit it if parliament can’t? You moron.

    • Stu

      “…the view of the Commons is important, but must never inhibit our ability to act.”

      The concept of “Action” is a core tenet of fascism.

      Funnily enough I think what might keep the UK directly out this disaster is that May isn’t confident enough to go to war without a vote and definitely not confident enough to hold one.

      • reel guid

        You could well be right Stu. May looked very uneasy in a tv interview the other day.

      • Stonky

        Frankly, May is now shitting her pants as she comes to realise a number of things:

        1. that Britan’s idiotic carry on in Salisbury was the planned prelude to the situation we now find ourselves in
        2. that the people she has been working with and trying to please are card-carrying lunatics who are quite literally capable of anything
        3. that because of her stupidity and venality she has played a key role in events that genuinely might drag the world into nuclear war in a matter of days – a war that Britain is not going to be asked whether it wants to join or not.

        I don’t think May is anything like as mad or evil as the neocons whose interests she has been working to further, and I think with every passing minute she is becoming more aghast at the Pandora’s box she has helped to unleash. Hence the desperate and all-too-late squeaking about ‘evidence that Assad was responsible’. Shame you didn’t think of that a month ago, May.

        All of you are grossly erred as to thinking that nukes might be in exit,aka used.

  • Orlando Quarmby

    “Finally there is a massive difference between mainstream media narrative around these events and a deeply sceptical public, as shown in social media and in comments sections of corporate media websites.”

    This, of course, is exactly why the BritNat State offered up as sacrificial lamb their erstwhile tool Cambridge Analytica, to give specious cover for ensuing legislation for government control of and intervention in what they are pleased to call the ‘wild west’ of social media.

  • Hatuey

    “Saudi Arabia has naturally offered facilities to support the UK, US and France in their attempt to turn the military tide in Syria in favour of the Saudi sponsored jihadists whom Assad had come close to defeating.”

    Correct. The ‘Army of Islam’ is one of the last remaining resistance groups left in the area who are opposed to Assad. They are armed, funded, and supported directly by Saudi Arabia. They are also direct descendants of Al Quaeda and want to turn Syria into an Islamic state.

    Of all the resistance groups that have come and gone in Syria, the Army of Islam is probably one of the most extreme and, indeed, the only reason they survived is down to the 4000 innocent civilians they abducted last year to use as human shields. They paraded these hostages in cages for the world to see and as a threat to Assad last summer.

    So, that’s the guys we are supporting. That’s who it is proposed that we go to war for; a branch of Al Quaeda with guns and 4000 hostages.

    Worth remember that these guys have producing chemical weapons for about 5 years and along with the White Helmets have been caught orchestrating various false flag operations.

      • Hatuey

        Very interesting video clip. The only serious line of questioning I have seen by the mainstream media on this gas attack and the last, conducted by Fox!

        You know the world is going through a weird phase when Fox News are genuinely trying to to the bottom of something like this.

      • J

        Most fascinating are the conflations by the good senator Wicker, attempting to suggest that attacking Assad is attacking ISIS, without saying so but clearly trying to give that impression and also making it clear that regime change is not the agenda but removing Assad is while not saying that either. He’s pitching to several different Republican demographics at once with different understandings of what is actually happening. That right there is a man trying to make sense across several different parralel universes. At the same time.

        Or he hasn’t a clue what’s going on.

        Pressed for evidence on any of the reasons for action, he’s got nothing.

  • romar

    Mr. Murray, Save your breath. Nothing can be done now, the rulers have gone mad. After declaring war on Putin on TV (for that’s what he did), Trump followed up with schoolboy taunts to same:
    “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” (In my part of the world, goatherds make this kind of taunts)
    Did you see Theresa May’s face when making those bellicose statements? Like a little girl excitedly anticipating a puppet show?
    Nothing to be done, therefore, but to wait for the conflagration.
    Unless President Putin finds a way to calm the mad ones…

    • bj

      This could go for a declaration of war, could it not?

      Furthermore, I wonder if he isn’t telegraphing to the Russians some bits of information as to which (kind of) units will be involved; the Russians might conduct their planning accordingly, an s such, this tweet might constitute an act of treason.

    • Alexander Reid

      If you will give the whole lot a second thought u ll realise that all of them are rowing the same boat.

  • Bunkum

    Jeremy Corbyn has demanded MPs be given a vote in Parliament to authorise potential military action in Syria.

    The Labour leader also said that Theresa May must “get every country including the US and Russia, as well as the neighbouring states, around the table in Geneva to bring about a political solution”.

    He was responding after a suspected chemical weapons attack in the city of Douma, which reportedly killed 70 people and injured 500.

    Exchange with my MP. I’ve awaited a response to my further question for 5 hours

     Dear P

    If this comes to Parliament, I will follow the arguments with an open mind. I am appalled by the scenes of devastation in Syria, but would want to be confident that any intervention increased rather than decreases the chances of peace. That’s very far from clear at this stage. 
    Best wishes,


    That is good so far as it goes but you are not saying whether you are pressing for it to come to Parliament.

    Do you think Parliament should be consulted before the UK takes any action.

    1 Yes

    2. It depends on the nature of the action

    3 No

    If 2 please give details.

    Thank You


  • Clifford Whitehead

    Is it not remarkable that the only times we see video footage of the white helmets in action in Syria, is when there is a reported chemical attack by the SAA?

  • Sebastian

    Having ramped up the tensions to the current level, I think the play book calls a bit of a hiatus while Donald gets his ducks lined up in the Med. And we all get to experience the added frisson of living in very interesting times. So a suggestion of a lengthy diversion on topic, if you’ve not seen it :
    Adam Curtis in “Hypernormalisation” covers the ground up to the destruction of Libya, at length (2h 40m) with BBC news archive footage. A little gore filled in parts, illustrating the dire nature of the message. I think its the impeccable Oxbridge voice over, in the Attenborough style, that let it pass the smell test at the BBC.

  • Michael Tucker

    Strange as it may seem, I wonder whether we should be rooting for Donald Trump right now. I wonder if he is fighting a deep state battle to unseat him at any cost. US business and, perish the thought that anyone should interfere in American politics, but if he goes: 1) do we lose the “pull out of Syria” message; 2) does someone who’ll ‘do the job properly’ come in?

    Fox News, who sided with Trump over the raiding of his lawyer’s offices and the presenter Tucker Carlson, who opposed the rush to war, seem to have taken a hit today (raids on Fox offices in London and, according to something that I thought that I saw on the New York Times website, in the US, I’ve not been able to see references to Carlson or his videos save on RT) and Trump seems to be at war with the NY Times. Also his tweets seem to suggest he’s waivering (classic Trump?) between opposing positions, as if resisting his dark side…or some outside pressure to be…in Syria.

    I don’t know, I just wondered.

      • Michael Tucker

        Thanks, John.

        You’re clearly not a man to let calls for sympathy with Trump go lightly. Looking back at the Fox raid, that was yesterday (Tuesday, 10th) and the NYT references that I have been able to find are to the same raid. Fox News did, still, oppose the raids and the war (Carlson Tucker).

        I enjoyed your posting.

        • John Goss

          The dangerous warmongering loon John Bolton who like Trump is a draft-dodger really worries me. Draft-dodging by me is all right providing you don’t want others to die in your stead. These people are real cowards dictating the deaths of others from a control room. Or sitting behind a computer screen killing people with drones.

    • Stonky

      “Strange as it may seem, I wonder whether we should be rooting for Donald Trump right now. I wonder if he is fighting a deep state battle to unseat him at any cost…”

      You wish Michael.

      He’s not “fighting a deep state battle”. He’s having it demonstrated to him, in every which way but Tuesday, that the POTUS is effectively a puppet. That other people with far more power, clout and influence than he could ever pretend to are running the show. That he has one option – play along. Because not playing along is not an option.

    • Flying Dutchman

      That’s exactly how I see it Michael. It’s a Deep State battle to force the neocon agenda upon him.

      Also all the criminal indictments about to be unsealed when the IG report drops will be nullified if US goes to war.

  • John Goss

    This morning I was in a hurry to go somewhere and left a message that was a mistake. That at 1700 hours there was going to be an event. That was a mistake. It should have read that the BBC clandestinely announced that there was going to be an event at 1900 hours. As I was in such a rush getting shaved and putting my kit in the car I must have thought for 5 o’clock (1700 hours) instead of 7 pm. I am speculating this might be what happened. Yes I’m getting old.

    Anyway I can explain now. It looks like the BBC has been running this story most of the day as it was still running an hour ago though I never caught the essential part this time round. The story concerned crime thrillers (how fitting) and showed the all-seeing eye of Freemasonry within a pyramid. Then there was a triangular bullet point (how unusual is that?) to show that crime thriller sales had gone up by 19%. I confess I never caught the full story because this distracted me and anyway it is a non-story and probably untrue. I hope I’m wrong but I am speculating that the Yanks are going to launch a missile strike at 7 pm our time. The % part gives the two zeros after the 19 so 1900.

    Tucker Carlson: What’s the American national security interest that will be serve by regime change in Syria?

    Sen. Roger Wicker: Well, if you care about Israel…. er, er, er…

    Must see:

    1:13 Again:

    TC: What’s the American national security interest that will be serve by regime change?

    Sen. RW: “…defeating ISIS in Irak and in Syria is still our goal…”

    2:14 Er, er, er

    4:25 Regarding the veracity of Khan Shaykhun Sarin attack Assad’s culpability

    TC: “… you apparently have proof that the Secretary of Defense doesn’t have…” “could you characterized it for us?”
    Sen. RW: No.

    You, as intelligent people, will realize that these shills are provided with talking points and once they are minimally questioned out of them by the almost nonexistent journalists left they have to answer with an unrelated talking point.

    Can’t believe we will be all vaporized for this.

  • Dave G

    I find it a bit depressing that they can stage these obvious false flags, that all the western governments immediately fall into line behind the Americans and that all the mainstream media unquestioningly parrots the official line.
    They are all up for some kind of military action against the people that they imagine might have done it, despite there being no independent evidence that a gas attack has actually occurred, let alone who did it.
    Some neocon once said “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality”, and that’s exactly what it looks like nowadays.

  • Ophelia Ball

    Written by the Institute for Public Accuracy. Originally posted at

    Francis Boyle is professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law. He said today: “Any U.S. attack targeting the Syrian government or its forces would clearly violate both U.S. and international law. When Obama was in a similar position in 2013, his advisor Ben Rhodes [see below] has since commented that they turned back largely because they were afraid of impeachment. That fear is well founded. While the prospect of impeaching Trump is thrown around frequently for partisan purposes, on this issue, the constitution is clear: Initiating a war or any such attack without authorization is clearly impeachable.

    “Last year, at the National Press Club, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., claimed the authority to target the Syrian government stemmed from the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force. Gen. Dunford was totally incorrect. The AUMF passed after 9/11 has indeed been used to justify the bombing campaign purporting to target ISIS, but it cannot possibly be used to justify targeting the Syrian government.

    “Excuses of ‘humanitarian intervention’ have no basis in international law and in these circumstances are transparently hollow. Israel apparently just attacked Syria (illegal) from Lebanese airspace (also illegal). Israel itself just openly admitted that it is killing Palestinian civilian protesters — part of a decades-long brazenly illegal policy. The U.S. representative to the UN, Nikki Haley, prevented even an inquiry by the UN into the matter. There’s no evidence of any humanitarian concern here, simply a search for pretexts to pursue geopolitical goals which may well include carving up Syria.”

    Boyle’s books include Foundations of World Order (Duke University Press).

    In 2017, Ben Rhodes, Obama’s Deputy National Security Advisor, and foreign policy speechwriter, told Politico that President Obama feared impeachment if he targeted the Syrian government:

    Rhodes: “The only country in the world that was prepared to join us [in attacking the Assad government] was France. And we had no domestic legal basis. We actually had Congress warning us against taking action without congressional authorization, which we interpreted as the president could face impeachment.”

    Politico: “Really? Was the prospect of impeachment actually a factor in your conversations?”

    Rhodes: “That was a factor. Go back and read the letters from Boehner, letters from the Republican members of Congress. They laid down markers that this would not be constitutional.”

    House Speaker John Boehner wrote to Obama in 2013: “It is essential you address on what basis any use of force would be legally justified and how the justification comports with the exclusive authority of Congressional authorization under Article I of the Constitution.”

    • Stonky

      In the interests of the survival of humanity could someone please draw this to the attention of Donald Trump.

      The only thing he seems to fear more than showing his tax returns is impeachment.

    • exiled off mainstreet

      Trump can be impeached on this basis but most congressmen appear to have signed off on it anyway. Impeachment also takes months. I respect Mr. Boyle and fully agree with him and this might be another avenue of agitation, but I think that the whole of the yankee regime and its accomplices must face some sort of accountability if this goes through.

    Wikipedia is having a bit of a problem finding “Reliable Sources” on the nature and delivery of the poison. There are no official UK statements.

      Jeremy Bowen on the BBC news last night and today keeps referring to a long convoy of hundreds of buses leaving Douma as people fleeing that town because of the chemical attacks…doesn’t say they are the army of islam figjters and their families leaving because they made an agreement with the russians and assad to leave town. If the BBC can’t get this right, why believe the rest of their lies?

      According to the late Udo Ulfkotte, a German journalist turned whistlblower, they are complicit.
      Reporter Udo Ulfkotte, Who Exposed Governments Creating Fake News War Propaganda, Found Dead

      “I was bribed by the Americans not to report exactly the truth. I was invited by the German Marshall Fund of the United States to travel to the US. They paid for all my expenses and put me in contact with Americans they’d like me to meet,” he said. “I became an honorary citizen of the state of Oklahoma in the US just because I wrote pro-American. I was supported by the CIA. I have helped them in several situations and I feel ashamed for that too.”

      Many journalists based in different countries are involved in the same practice of working with American and European intelligence agencies to varying degrees, Ulfkotte also added.

      “Most of the journalists you see in foreign countries, they claim to be journalists and they might be. But many of them, like me in the past, are so-called ‘non-official cover.’ It means you work for an intelligence agency. You help them if they want you to, but they will never say they know you.”

      Ulfkotte also discussed the specific progression of how mainstream media journalists are sought out and eventually approached by government agents. The unofficial working relationships between these journalists and intelligence agencies usually begin as a friendship, to prep the journalist before proposing the cooperation.


  • Aslangeo

    The lack of any communication from Russia is puzzling – no official statements by anybody important. Is there paralysis ? – I am reminded of Stalin’s reaction to Barbarossa , where he went into a breakdown for several days, because he could not believe that Hitler had double crossed him and invaded. This obviously hampered Soviet decision making during the first two weeks of the war. In this case I fear we may not have two weeks. I hope and pray that the silence is not indicative of a deadly paralysis

    • Roman_D

      I think it’s hell of a lot of work is being done by russians these days. It’s just not public. Especially when it comes to very serious matters.
      For example – I’ve posted a link above that states that RU is in contact with US.
      That’s just different styleh and different political system and culture. People anyway cannot affect on internarional politics here.
      I’m a bit envious, if you can say so, when see here people writing to their MPs. Thus there is at least some way co communicate with authorities. Though I’m ot sure if this can indeed change anything and make politicians act differently.

        1. The ball is in the American’s court: if the Russians have made their preparations, then all they need to do now is bide their time and wait to see what form Trump’s idiocy takes

        2. To misquote Napoleon – “Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake”

        3. The Americans may be wavering – “We’re still assessing the intelligence — ourselves and our allies. We’re still working on this,” Mattis told the media on Wednesday in Washington.”

        4. To misquote Churchill: “This is not The End. It is not even The Beginning of the End. In fact, I’m not even sure what the F*ck is going on right now, so I’m going to sit this one out for a while and see if the other guy blinks first”

  • exiled off mainstreet

    The yankee regime and any of its operatives, if they takes any military action whatever against the Syrian state based on this phony propaganda pretext, are guilty of war crimes and therefore illegitimate. Any client state and any of its agents, for that is what any entity becomes if they back these criminal actions, also render themselves war criminals. It is breathtakingly absurd, and, considering the stakes involved, dicing with our survival, worse in some sense than the Nazi crimes were, and is not only criminal but, therefore, as stupid as possible.

  • Hatuey

    If Russia has a porn video involving Trump and golden showers, I think right about now would be a good time to release a trailer…

      That would definitely trigger the attack. Remember Monika Levinsky and US attack on Yugoslavia?

    WASHINGTON, April 11. /TASS/. US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said on Wednesday that work to assess the intelligence on the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria’s Douma is still in progress.

    “We’re still assessing the intelligence – ourselves and our allies. We’re still working on this,” Mattis said when asked whether there is sufficient evidence to accuse Syrian President Bashar al-Assad of using chemical agents in Douma.

    So no evidence no attack? Or what? Then what was yesterdays speech of nikki haley about?

    • GoAwayAndShutUp

      It will take another 10 months, like the last time with Khan Sheikhoun, to find out there was no evidence at all but, by then, it will not matter. In any case, he can always half apologize like Tony Blair, from his bunker.
