Syria is the most strategic place in the region

Tonight, I want to show you what Syria is really all about and boil it down to what Progressives say they’re against, but see, they never really are – oil and money. That’s what this war is really all about.

Maybe that’s why George Bush fought the last war. I don’t know. I mean, they said Dick Cheney was Darth Vader. Darth Vader, right? Well, let me show you what this one’s really about. Russia here has been partners with Syria for a long time. Why? Well, for one reason. This is the Mediterranean here, and the only other port that they can pull into is right here. So all of their ships that are out in the Mediterranean and go all out, they all have to come back in to refuel here, unless Syria allows them in.

So Syria is critical. It’s critical because of their land mass. They have no access to warm water. They are in ice lock or land lock everywhere else. Syria provides that access to water. Without it, Russia is vulnerable. Shipping would be extremely difficult for Russia. And we’ve seen in the past few days as the anti-Syrian rhetoric increases, Russia sends their ships back. They send actual missile cruisers right here, and they move their warships along the naval vessels to help Syrian government.

Syria is important because the ships, but there’s another reason, a dirty little secret that the media won’t let you in on this time around, that this is a war for oil, and here’s how: Ronald Reagan said in the 1980s if you ever, ever let Russia build a pipeline, it will be a stranglehold on Europe. Well, in 2016, there will be a new oil and natural gas pipeline that is going to open up, and where is it going to open up?

It’s going to open up right here and go up into Europe, but first, it goes like that. It’s in Syria. It is the most strategic place in the region. It’s the strategic place for a pipeline to flow into Europe. It comes from Russia, and it goes through Iran into Syria. That’s how it works. Well, there was another offer. Instead of the pipeline coming down like this and then up into Russia, the other offer was for a similar pipeline, and it went like this. It was a proposal by the great country of Qatar, but they were denied. It was the Islamic nations’ pipeline.

John Kerry recently said the Arab nations have offered to pay for the entire war in Syria. Really? Saudi Arabia is one of them. Really? Qatar is the other one. Wow, the kindness of their hearts, or is it the kindness of their radical Islamist hearts? It’s all about money and oil. They want a pipeline, and they’re prepared to do anything to get this pipeline as opposed to this pipeline.

By the way, you lose either pipeline. It doesn’t make a difference to us, but it makes a heck of a lot of the difference a Russia. It makes a heck of a lot difference to Iran, and it makes a whole lot of a difference to all the people who we’re cozy with. By the way, we know Saudi Arabia, they’re the ones who we went with on our hands and begged them for money during the banking crisis, but Qatar, why is that name so familiar?

Oh, I remember. Qatar is the founding nation and the sole supporter of Al Jazeera TV. Oh, that’s right. No wonder so many Progressives in the administration are singing the praises of Al Jazeera. It is all about money and oil. This is a war for oil. That was the mantra during the Iraq crisis, right? All you have to do is pull the mask off of Darth Vader, and you see him right there. It’s Dick Cheney. Is it? Pull the mask off of Dick Cheney – uh oh, it looks like exactly the same game.

But they’re not calling it war for oil today. No, they’re not saying that, but they should be because that’s the layer that everybody is missing. And meanwhile, our president is going to come out and say we’ve got to get involved because of the children. Isn’t that what they accused Bush of doing? It’s amazing how Progressives continue to play the same game over and over again, and it will succeed unless you wake up.

Putin: Syria chem arms handover will work only if US calls off strike

Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Syria’s chemical arms handover will only work if the US and its allies renounce the use of force against Damascus.

"Certainly, this is all reasonable, it will function and will work out, only if the US and those who support it on this issue pledge to renounce the use of force, because it is difficult to make any country – Syria or any other country in the world – to unilaterally disarm if there is military action against it under consideration," President Putin said on Tuesday. 

According to Russia Today,Putin said the disarmament of Syria’s chemical weapons had been extensively discussed by experts and politicians.

The Russian president said that he and President Barack Obama had “indeed discussed” such a possibility on the sidelines of the G20 summit in St. Petersburg last week.

It was agreed, Putin said, “to instruct Secretary of State [John Kerry] and Foreign Minister [Sergey Lavrov] to get in touch” and “try to move this idea forward.”

Russia’s Foreign Ministry will propose a draft statement by the chairman of the UN Security Council, supporting the initiative to transfer Syria’s chemical weapons to international control.

The issue was discussed during a phone conversation between Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his French counterpart, Laurent Fabius.

“[Lavrov] said that Russia, on its part, is submitting a draft statement for the UN Security Council’s chairman, welcoming the… initiative and calling on the UN Secretary General, the general director of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, and all the interested parties to make efforts to facilitate the implementation of this proposal,” the ministry’s statement said. 

At the same time, Syria said it was ready to completely give up chemical weapons and sign the Chemical Weapons Convention.

“We are ready to show sites with chemical arsenals to Russia’s representatives, as well as representatives of other states and the UN,”
Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Moallem told Lebanon-based Al-Mayadeen TV.

In response to Russia’s proposal, Obama said he was willing to “absolutely” put on pause a military strike on Syria if the Syrian government accepts the offer.

UN experts should return to Syria to continue chemical attack probe - Lavrov

The elaboration of a plan for placing Syrian chemical weapons under international control does not make the verification of every report on the use of chemical weapons and the return of UN experts to Syria unnecessary, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

"This work does not make the verification of all reports on the use of chemical weapons in Syria unnecessary," he said after negotiations with Libyan counterpart Muhammad Abdelaziz,according to Voice of Russia.

"UN experts should return to Syria and fully implement their mandate before presenting a report to the UN Security Council, which would consider the whole body of evidence, including testimonies of numerous experts, public organizations, religious leaders and others," Lavrov said.

US Senate Republican leader McConnell to vote against Syria force resolution

US Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday he would vote against the current resolution authorizing US military force in Syria, in a blow to President Barack Obama's hopes of passing the measure,according to  Voice of Russia, Reuters

"A vital national security risk is clearly not at play," in Syria, McConnell said in a statement that made him the only one of the top four US congressional leaders to oppose the resolution.

He said there were "too many unanswered questions" about US strategy in Syria, and the proposed strike may be a "mere demonstration," while a Russian proposal to secure the weapons was worth exploring.

Meanwhile the speaker of the US House of Representatives said on Tuesday that the American people are not supportive of President Barack Obama's position on Syria .

"The American people have not been supportive. They have not made the sale to the American people. That's why I think tonight is so important," John Boehner told a news conference, referring to Obama's planned speech to the U.S. nation on Tuesday night on Syria.

Iran: Attacking Syria Leads to Multi-Sided War in Region

TEHRAN - Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan warned the advocates of war on Syria against its unpredictable consequences, saying such a war will engage numerous countries and lead to a regional war, according to FNA.

"The Syrian government will not stand still to allow others to topple their political system or bomb their people without facing any reaction," Dehqan said in a televised interview with Iran's state-run channel one TV on Monday night.

"Certainly, this reaction will be shown on the basis of the decision made by the Syrian political leaders and will cause a new round of reciprocal attacks in the region and it will possibly entangle others with battle and put them in battlefield," he added.

Dehqan advised the Americans to think about the consequences and results of "invading" Syria and do a cost-and-benefit before embarking on an attack on Syria.

"I believe that the US intervention with any quality will lead to the spread of the crisis, creation of a security vacuum and make the Americans get stuck in the region like in Afghanistan and Iraq," he added.
