Qatar – Alcohol Ban Bad, Fueling War in Syria Good?

undefined

In the lead up to the 2022 Qatar World Cup, the hosting of the tournament by the conservative Muslim state has been the source of much controversy in Western media.

On Thursday, less than 48 hours before the opening match between the host country and Ecuador, it was announced that alcohol would be prohibited from being sold in any of Qatar’s football stadiums. Controversy also arose on Monday afternoon when a plan for England captain Harry Kane to wear the rainbow-themed ‘OneLove’ armband in his country’s match against Iran, was cancelled at the last minute due to an intervention from FIFA.

What has received virtually zero-coverage or criticism in the run up to Qatar’s hosting of the World Cup however, has been Doha’s instrumental role in fuelling the 11-year long proxy war on Syria, a conflict that has led to thousands of deaths, an exacerbated refugee crisis, and the rise of ISIS.

In 2009, plans for the construction of a pipeline that would begin in the Qatari-managed North Dome gas field in the Persian Gulf, and which would then pass through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and Turkey on its way to Europe, were halted by the refusal of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to take part, his close relationship with Russia being a deciding factor.

With the Arab Republic being a long-time opponent of the US-NATO hegemony, in which the Gulf States behind the pipeline play a key role, this refusal would act as a final straw for the regime-change lobby. A plan was quickly put in place to remove Assad from power.

The ‘Persian Spring’ – Libya and Syria Script Now Playing out in Iran

undefined

Thursday’s admission by former US National Security Advisor and notorious Iran-hawk John Bolton, that weapons are being provided to those carrying out the latest regime change attempt taking place against Tehran, should come as little surprise.

Beginning on the 16th of September, less than 24 hours after Iran had joined the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation - an alliance intended to foster political, economic and military development in Eurasia - protests that initially started in response to the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year old Iranian woman who passed away suddenly following an interaction with a female police officer in Tehran, would rapidly escalate into violent riots that quickly swept the Islamic Republic.

The sudden, violent nature of these riots, and their coordinated coverage by Western media, bore all the trademarks of a CIA-orchestrated colour revolution, which would later be confirmed as such by the involvement of Masih Alinejad, a US Agent who previously held a meeting with former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo – like John Bolton, another long-time supporter of regime change in Iran.

The ‘Ukrainian Resistance’ and the Houthis - A contrast in media coverage

undefined

In the now month-long mainstream media coverage of the Russian military intervention in Ukraine, much attention has been paid to the actions of the ‘Ukrainian Resistance’.

In a manner not dissimilar to its coverage of the ‘Syrian rebels’ a decade ago, a romanticised image of ‘Ukrainian freedom fighters’ fighting bravely against a militarily superior Russian foe has been widespread amongst corporate outlets, alongside their fawning over Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in his calls for the implementation of a No Fly Zone - a move that would undoubtedly trigger nuclear war.

This Hollywood-style PR makeover of the Ukrainian military by the corporate media, including the notorious neo-Nazi Azov Battalion, also shares a strong similarity with the aforementioned ‘Syrian rebels’ in that it highlights the strong presence of CIA involvement in the background.

Indeed, the training of Ukrainian military personnel by the CIA to engage in guerrilla warfare against Russia was recently outlined in a Western corporate media report, indicating that a plan was in place to draw Moscow into an Iraq-war style military quagmire in Ukraine – the second largest country in Europe.

Media pivots back to Covid – prelude to a Ukraine false flag?

undefined

Over the past month, the mainstream media has focused on the Russian military intervention in Ukraine which launched in response to the eight year long war on the breakaway pro-Russian Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk. Numerous attempts had been made by Moscow to resolve the situation peacefully – specifically, calls for Kiev to implement its side of the Minsk Agreements giving the breakaway republics some autonomy while remaining under Ukrainian rule- but these attempts had all been rebuffed by Kiev and Washington.

In the past week however, the media focus has noticeably switched back to COVID-19, specifically the new ‘BA.2 variant’, with reports of the positive tests of high-profile figures such as Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Jen Psaki and Doug Emhoff, husband of US Vice President Kamala Harris. Media attention not seen since multiple countries worldwide simultaneously dropped all restrictions at the end of January, during the highly coincidental timing of the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda virtual event, suddenly refocused on Covid.

This sudden coordinated pivot back to the Covid mainstream media narrative raises many questions, and with the recent confirmation by current Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland – herself instrumental in the original Euromaidan regime change operation – that US-funded labs in Ukraine were developing bioweapons, as well as allegations by the White House that Russia is planning to use chemical weapons, there is indication that the sudden media switch to Covid may be used as a means to clear the stage for a deadly escalation in Ukraine; specifically a false flag chemical attack, blamed on Russia by the West, and used as a pretext for NATO to launch a ‘No Fly Zone’ over Ukraine.
