.. so-called 'leaders' have no mandate
Thesis/Subtitle 1: it's not what they say, but what they do that counts
Thesis/Subtitle 2: those who do not actively oppose evil, assume part-responsibility for the filthy crimes that then go on unchecked
Corollary: the absolute worst crime is murder, next worse is inflicting terror = writhing, suffering, living-death. The US/Zs are masters of both.
Preamble: One only has to imagine the living-death being suffered in Syria, following the smashing of Libya, itself following Afghanistan, Iraq and Afghanistan again, as the US went as it still goes = berserk across the Middle-East after 9/11. But it didn't start with 9/11; going backwards we had the smashing of parts of the FYRs (Former Yugoslav Republics, late 90s), Iraq again (1991), Vietnam in between, Iran (1953), and innumerable other minor countries smashed. Then there's the major crime against Palestinians, 1897-1947-present, UNGA181 etc. = illegal + immoral dispossession by genocidal methods, by the US' illegitimate side-kick (OR actual masters, à la tail wags dog), the Zionists. The evil inflicted by the 3rd Reich was seamlessly carried on by US/Zs = the notional 4th Reich, only the propaganda gets ever slicker.
The living-death being suffered in Syria, as the real deaths = murders, are being inflicted on the hapless, innocent civilians, *not* mostly by Assad's forces as continually alleged (without even saying 'alleged') by the corporate-captive mainstream media incl. publicly-financed broadcasters (= corrupt&venal MSM + PFBCs), but the most damage is being done by so-called 'rebels,' some of whom may be locals with legitimate grievances, but again but, are largely externally supported and/or imported interlopers = aggressive attacker/invaders, including El Salvador-style "death squads" - see Houla massacre, say.
What 9/11 did was to enable covert fascism to go more overt - and accelerate the evil; cui bono? End preamble.

NATO Proxies Turkey and Saudi Arabia Move to War Footing on Eve of Syrian ‘Peace Summit’
by Finian Cunningham
June 28, 2012
«The NATO-backed covert aggression against Syria could be reaching a tipping point for all-out war involving state forces. That should be no surprise. For the past 16 months, NATO and its regional proxies have been steadily increasing the violence and turmoil inside and outside Syria, while the Western corporate-controlled media maintain the ridiculous fiction that the bloody chaos is largely due to the government forces of President Bashar Al Assad cracking down on “peaceful protesters”.
As several other commentators have pointed out, this war plan is aimed at asserting Western capitalist hegemony in the oil-rich Middle East and Central Asia regions. Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria are part of an overarching bid for “full-spectrum dominance” that will eventually target, overtly, Iran, Russia and China.»
Comment: The article describes a) what they do (they = US + NATO SQSHsO = snivelling quisling sycophantic hangers-on), and b) what they say (they = corrupt&venal MSM + PFBCs), successively a) = murder for spoil and b) = lying, psyop propaganda.

Unilateral Intervention without a UN Mandate: Propagandists Sell "Vigilante" Solution for Syria
by Tony Cartalucci

landdestroyer.blogspot.com - 2012-06-29
«Unfortunately for Dobos and his ivory tower academia, the truth about the violence in Syria not only mires his proposal in the unpleasantries of reality, it drowns it. The "murder, torture, and rape" Dobos claims unilateral military intervention will stop, was in fact premeditated, planned, staged, funded, and the forces carrying it out entirely armed by the West in an effort not for "preventing human rights abuses," but to admittedly overthrow the government of Syria and install a compliant, pro-Western client regime, as the West has done in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, and is attempting to do elsewhere from Northern Africa to Southeast Asia and beyond.
Suggesting that the West should unilaterally intervene in Syria, without a UN mandate has been on corporate-financier funded policy makers' wishlist for months. Neo-Conservative led corporate funded think tank (beginning on page 18, .pdf), the Henry Jackson Society, has openly declared NATO's plans to do just that. Of course, to do so, it must be thoroughly justified in the court of public opinion - a court Dobos just so happens to have testify before with his pedantic, fact-devoid, intelligence-insulting diatribe.»
Comment: The Cartalucci article refers to an article in the Aus smh by an academic, trying to lay-out = justify a path to war. Also of note are references to Clark & Hersh; follow-up recommended.
Summary: Unless stopped (by something approaching a miracle), the coming war to smash yet another ME country, to the continued agony and terror of the hapless population, is another in the series 'forecast' by Wesley Clark's disclosures. Effectively, the only 'offence' Syria has against it is a government which does not totally prostrate itself before the US/Z criminal behemoth. The US/Zs can't smash Syria alone = unsupported, so they suborn accomplices = NATO+SQSHsO, and they smother the entire operation in lies, brought to us *and amplified* by the corrupt&venal MSM+PFBCs, plus 'apologists' in academia, and *not* effectively opposed by anyone, especially not the self-claimed 'moral authorities' = Churches. It's *another* scandalous, murdering to steal crime - where are the decent people in all this?
Q1: Who is to blame:
A1: In short, the mainly US M/I/C/4a†-plex plus the I/J/Z-plex.
Individual terms; the M/I/C/4a†-plex is Eisenhower's Military-Industrial Complex, plus C (= politicians/parliaments; i.e. US Congress), 4 for the media (= the 4th estate, MSM+PFBCs), 'a' for academic (= economists (erring neoliberal ideology), psychologists (lying, psyop-propaganda), legal = lawless US; UN et al. - and no effective objections), † = the Church (outrageously does *not* effectively oppose wars, or even preach against most times), and finally, the I/J/Z-plex = self-explanatory.
A2: All those who do not actively oppose this vile evil.
Q2: Anyone/thing else?
A3: Yes, 'audio/visual' = mostly TV. Because the human animal evolved for squillions of years depending on eyes&ears both for food-acquisition & avoiding becoming food = Darwinian survival, the human audio/visual system accepts input *without* pre-processing = filtering of any sort. Thus audio/visual info goes in, and IF the input = bad (aka lies, say = propaganda), THEN too bad; it gets in anyway. So the population may be propagandised; in full: Pushed-propaganda paradigm dumbed-down = PPP-DD'd. It helps (the baddies) to have a psychologist on the propaganda-preparation job, thus 'Viagra-assisted rape' (Libya), or snipers on any ME roof (also next door to *YOU* - if you 'mess' with US/Zs! - Me = only Joe King, US/Zs not.) The psyop-propaganda comes in news but not only, and no! - It's not 'just a movie:' That's another way they smuggle US-kulcha in - to corrupt the viewers' minds.
Anecdote: 'Back then' ('70s), I once argued *against* Palestine; I was *wrong*. I was *mis*-informed, by my 99%-sole 'news' source = AusBC. In a nutshell, they lie by both commission & omission; Israel is an un-remedied crime-scene (improper alienation of approaching an entire country by genocidal methods = murder for soil). The AusBC has never effectively communicated this disastrous, criminal scenario to me - which proves their 'dishonesty,' shall we say? Since I'm neither hard of hearing nor of reading, and those from a young age; had the AusBC ever mentioned Z-criminality, you'd think I'd have noticed. Didn't, and so my embarrassment - back then, but no more.
Epilogue: It's easy to prove that our democracies are sham, but the US/Zs rogue-regimes keep harping that they are correct *because* they are democratic. That's simply yet another lie, BUT: There is something to it, and it's this: IF in a democracy (however sham), the majority of people *do not object* to evil = US/Z wars, THEN those people = that same majority, are giving *tacit* approval (as the assumed default) to that evil - and therefore those people assume some responsibility - which, under such dire circumstances of ours, i.e. the rogue-regimes mass-murdering for spoil, is contributing-guilt to capital-crimes. Yes, that’s all those who do not strenuously, visibly = go out and say so, object.
Fazit: The world is getting worse; berserk = out of control US/Z-militarism on the plundering-rampage. *Must be stopped*; decent people everywhere (we vastly outnumber the crims), roll-out the tumbrels.
Update 17:41; PS Normally, I pay more attention to *what* is written (in this case, rubbish), than by *whom* (in this case, a certain Dr. Dobos), but "University of New South Wales, Canberra" sounded 'not quite right,' so I checked. Big surprise: ADFA = Australian Defence Forces Academy! So a pro-war 'opinion piece' was written by a teacher of professional killers. Sounds about right, where here 'right' = both right-wing and totally wrong.
(Note: 'Defence' = defence, not crossing borders inbound, armed and dangerous, proceeding to slaughter innocent natives - all a US/Z+Aus specialty, it seems - by actual observation.)
The smh could have saved themselves some trouble by including 'ADFA' as part of the Dr. Dobos blurb - but that they didn't speaks volumes (refer 'lying by omission.') It is not surprising that any part of the (corrupt&venal) MSM brings pro-war propaganda, just always disappointing. Further: "World powers meet to hammer out deal on Syria" - a leading 'contributor' = Annan, he of 'the US-led attack on Iraq was illegal.' What Syria needs is 'hands off,' starting with US/Z hands off, then all external trouble-makers ditto. What Syria needs is no more attacks on the govt., plus a truth& reconciliation process. Syria belongs to Syrians, and if Russia and/or China allow the US/Z rogue-regimes to continue smashing countries, then both Russia and China will end up being one of the smashed.
