Here is another couple of articles with info on the action near the Turkey border, as well as info about what areas the 'rebels' have claimed to have seized power of in the last few days.

Again, this is the exact same narrative they used with Libya right before they pushed through the no-fly zone. It does appear to be escalating quickly now...

"Syrian jets bomb rebel bases near Turkey border"
news.yahoo.com...

"Rebels Claim They Seized Air Bases and a Dam in Syria"
www.nytimes.com...

(Haven't found any info on the refugee camp bombing that was claimed to have been proven to be false in an earlier post)

@Dragon "The email alleges that Iran is using civilian aircraft to transport arms and other material to Syria and Gaza, and it essentially asks for a flyover and continued relations in allowing them to use their airspace?"

(this is in regard to what was just leaked by anonymous)

Well, how 'bout that - would this give them justification for a no-fly zone?

Not sure about that myself...No doubt there's no way to verify if those are legit...

And doesn't it seem a little too coincidental?

This is the first confirmed hit of a Syrian helicopter by rebel forces. They have claimed several aircraft shot down that have proven to be faked.

This one shows an Mi-17 helicopter, you can hear a shoulder fired missile launch, and then see the hit on the side of the helicopter.



Another view that shows that it crashes shortly after being hit. It looks like he autorotates in.

Syria Claims Turkey Committed “Air Piracy,” New Documents Say



Documents posted online Monday by hackers associated with the online group Anonymous appear to give new details on a Syrian passenger flight from Moscow to Damascus that Turkish fighter jets forced to land last month. The incident sparked a diplomatic row between the two neighbors that have grown increasingly at odds as the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad attempts to crush a popular uprising.


I have also gotten a hold of the emails and documents associated with them. Some collaborators and I are reviewing them. There are quite a few, but the above report is among many to come within the next day or so.

I have just seen a report on CNN from a journalist inside Syria. I cannot verify the report as it most likely wont be processed into an article. The journalist met up with an Assad soldier who gives her a brief tour of what has been happening in one of the cities and the damage that has been done.

He goes on to take her through a hole in one of the buildings and show the reporter where the FSA are hiding in buildings within the city. They are snipers, the conflict has been labelled as a deadlock and this is just more proof that the FSA are hiding amongst the population of Syria.

But with that, it seems the Syrian Army are in control of the area and it doesn't seem as though they are slaughtering the population in that part of the country either.

Russia printed money for Assad's regime in Syria


According to the New York-based nonprofit corporation for investigative journalism, ProPublica, an examination of flight manifests obtained by the organization and published on its website proves that a Syrian Air Force Ilyushin-76 cargo plane made at least eight round-trip flights between Moscow's Vnukovo Airport and Damascus between July 9 and Sept. 15 last summer – each time hauling home 30 tons of freshly printed Syrian banknotes.



That means that Mr. Assad received about 240 tons of banknotes, which experts calculate would be about 240 million crisp new Syrian pound notes of various denominations. One Syrian pound is currently worth about 1.5 US cents.

This has been reported on, referenced in Penny's blog entry I posted above:


Update and a curious one - Why
is the mainstream media spinning
about Russia printing Syria's
currency? Why now?
It is old news. Reported on

Is this just a standard

I don't know if the Anon info is referring to something else, but it has been previously reported on, even if not by the MSM. Not sure what the point of it is...

Because we now have documents proving its all true. Propaganda? not at all. There are more documents inside of the emails we see on the web. Pages and pages. Letters to the UN etc...unfortunately all of this is going to take a lot of time to translate. Why doesn't MSM report on it? Maybe because they see this as being too much work to do with not enough of a payout.

Well, it will be interesting to see what comes out of it, and if the documents can be verified to be genuine.

I think what Penny was getting at was the (MSM) idea that Russia printing their currency is somehow wrong or illegal or secretive, when the SANA article dated Aug, reports govt statements about it. Hence, the propaganda label. It's no secret, and Syria can have their money printed by and wherever they want to.

Just b/c these countries - who've illegally overthrown govts more than once remember, illegally invaded countries and murdered over a million people based on proven lies (no sanctions on them?!) - just b/c they continue to be able to sanction other countries, continue to be seen as legitimate, to even be allowed to be part of the UN at all, based on their spurious claims, outright lies, and illegal actions, doesn't mean Russia or Syria have to comply with their pressure and pronouncements.

The 'baddies' are the ones who are in compliance with International law.

But, perception is everything....

The SANA article? It's in the post near the top of this page with the link to Penny's blog. (On a tablet, or I'd post it.)

Edit to add: Here it is, dated Aug 3, 2012:

sana.sy...


Jamil went on to say that Russia's position in support of a political solution practically broke the media blockade and prevented a repetition of what happened in Iraq and Libya.

Regarding the printing of Syrian currency in Russia, said that this is a triumph since there were those who through that if they ceased printing money for Syria, it would cause it an economic and financial crisis, adding that Syria's isn't alone in this battle.

In turn, Finance Minister Mohammad al-Jleilati pointed out that Syria had contracts with a European country to print currency, and due to the sanctions this country refrained from delivering this currency which is why Syria turned to Russia and printed currency and stored in to replace damaged notes, in addition to introducing extra currency according to changes in the GDP, affirming that the printing of currency has no effect on inflation.

Al-Jleilati said that there's a possibility for Russia to provide foreign currency loans to help Syria during this crisis, adding that Syria has sufficient reserves but the current conditions require extra reserves.

I just found this thread:

NATO delivering tanks to Syrian Opposition www.abovetopsecret.com...

Here is the post and video:

Are these Russian made Turkish tanks, maybe? They don't look American.

Caught on Tape, NATO tank delivery to terrorist in Syria at the Turkish side of Bab el Hawa crossing between Turkey and Syria. Clear evidence of NATO weapon delivery to terrorists inside Syria.

Here is a new article up at LandDestroyer:

"Breaking: Western-backed Terrorists in Syria Slaughter Christians in Bombing - Al Qaeda terrorists, backed, armed, funded, and diplomatically recognized by the West, have detonated 2 car bombs in Christian-Druze quarters in Damascus, killing dozens." Nov 28, 2012

www.landdestroyer.blogspot.ca...


Twin car bombs carried out by the Western-backed so-called "rebels" have killed dozens of civilians in a Christian-Druze neighborhood in Damascus, highlighting the sectarian extremism, not "democratic" aspirations, as well as the level of depravity, driving opponents of the Syrian government...

...To reiterate, the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia had planned as far back as 2007 to specifically use sectarian extremists to overrun and overthrow Syria. This was revealed in a report published by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Seymour Hersh, titled The Redirection. Citing US, Saudi, and Lebanese officials, as well as former US intelligence agents, Hersh reported:

"To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has coöperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda." -The Redirection, Seymour Hersh (2007)
Hersh's report would also include:

"the Saudi government, with Washington’s approval, would provide funds and logistical aid to weaken the government of President Bashir Assad, of Syria. The Israelis believe that putting such pressure on the Assad government will make it more conciliatory and open to negotiations."
Clearly, that is exactly what is playing out now in Syria, despite the Western media's best efforts to portray otherwise. The US Army's own reports indicate that very hotbeds of violence in Syria today, match precisely with 2007 identified Al Qaeda-Muslim Brotherhood epicenters that were supplying terrorists to Iraq to fuel similarly deadly sectarian violence there.

Also a note, the Russians may have been printing currency for Syria, sending it to Damascus, but why was Syria sending plane loads of cash back to Russia via Ukraine? The files show that the money was moving in both directions. They also note that the planes either made stops in or flew over Azerbaijan, Iran, Iraq and Russia. The plane used was a civilian aircraft.

Sounds like Assad and the SAA are slowly retaking Daraa.
