| In August 2011, the Telegraph reported in an article titled, “Libya crisis: Rebel leaders hoping to starve Gaddafi stronghold of Sirte into submission,” that:
Rebel leaders hope to starve Colonel Gaddafi’s home town
of Sirte into submission, laying siege to his last remaining stronghold
in an attempt to avoid mass bloodshed, according to the man spearheading
efforts for a peaceful takeover.
Assisting them in the starvation of the 100,000 civilians who
populated the coastal city of Sirte was NATO who rained bombs down upon
the besieged city relentlessly while terrorists on the ground cut off
electricity, water, gas, food, and other essential supplies.
AP would also report on the starvation of Sirte in its article, “U.N. Warns Libya Is Short of Water, Fuel, Medicine:”
Rebel commanders have been negotiating with tribal
leaders in Qaddafi’s hometown of Sirte, hoping to avoid further
bloodshed. They announced Thursday that they had extended the
negotiations’ deadline for another week, from this coming Saturday.
“We want to save our fighters and not lose a single one
in battles with Qaddafi’s forces,” said Mohammed al-Rajali, a spokesman
for the rebel leadership in the eastern city of Benghazi.
“In the end, we will get Sirte, even if we have to cut water and electricity” and let NATO pound it with airstrikes, he said.
And despite the title of the report, the UN made no mention of the
tactics of the terrorists and their NATO backers. Instead, the UN was
more concerned with aiding areas of the nation already taken by NATO’s
In 2011, the general consensus appeared to be that cutting off an
entire city surrounded on all sides by desert and sea, constituted a
“humane” and “peaceful” means of taking the remaining strongholds of the
overthrown Libyan government. How times and the sensibilities of the
West have changed…
The Syrian Arab Army Surrounds Al Qaeda
It is now the end of 2013, with the conflict in Syria having dragged
on for three years. The Syrian government has decisively turned the tide
against waves of NATO-backed foreign terrorists and
their extremist collaborators within the country, having restored order
in many parts of the country and having surrounded the terrorist
proxies in a dwindling number of districts across the Syria.

Were it truly interested in relieving Syrians, it would expose the true genesis of the conflictto the world and hold those responsible accountable.
In some areas, the terrorists have been completely surrounded, cut
off from reinforcements and supplies. Just as in Libya, the Syrian Arab
Army is waiting for the terrorists to be starved out rather than attempt
a bloody assault – the difference being that civilians – women and
children – most certainly are allowed (at least by the Syrian
government) to leave the besieged areas, leaving the terrorists alone.
Reuters attempts to frame the Syrian government as obstructing aid
and intentionally leaving women and children to starve and freeze to
death. In its article titled, “Syria uses red tape, threats to control UN aid agencies,” it states:
Syrian government is accused of using hunger as a weapon
of war against its people and preventing U.N. aid staff in delivering
food and medicines to rebel-held suburbs.
Reuters continues (emphasis added):
As the United Nations launched an annual appeal on Monday
to help 16 million people affected Syria’s civil war, divisions among
world powers that have crippled peacemaking are also denying UN staff
the power to defy President Bashar al-Assad’s officials and push into
neighbourhoods now under siege.
“In government-controlled parts of Syria, what, where and
to whom to distribute aid, and even staff recruitment, have to be
negotiated and are sometimes dictated,” said Ben Parker, who ran the UN
Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in Syria for a
year until last February.
“According to the Syrian government’s official position,
humanitarian agencies and supplies are allowed to go anywhere, even
across any frontline,” he wrote last month in the journal Humanitarian
Exchange. “But every action requires time-consuming permissions, which
effectively provide multiple veto opportunities.” Fighting and rebel
groups are also obstacles.
The United Nations appealed for $6.5 billion on Monday to
help 16 million people affected by the Syrian civil war, including
millions made hungry and homeless by the conflict soon entering its
fourth year. The world body estimates about a quarter of a
million Syrians are living under siege as winter bites, most of them
encircled by government forces, but also including 45,000 in two towns
in the north that are besieged by anti-Assad rebels.
A binding Security Council resolution could
formally oblige the authorities to let aid agencies into areas like the
Damascus suburbs and the old city of Homs, where local doctors say
children are dying of malnutrition. But divisions between
Western powers, backing the rebels, and Russia, have paralysed the world
body over Syria since the conflict began in 2011.
Of course, Reuters excuses itself once again from having to qualify
any of its claims – particularly those regarding the intentional
starving and freezing of women and children. It does so by stating:
Lack of access for independent agencies makes it hard to
verify food and medical supplies in many areas. But opposition activists
have posted video of the bodies of several skeletal children who local
doctors say died of malnutrition.
Once again, accusations of the Syrian government’s “crimes against
humanity” are solely based on the “activists say” school of journalism,
where “rebel” propagandists renowned as serial liars,
have posted videos of unverified footage then reported as fact by their
Western collaborators – with disclaimers later buried deep within
What the West is Using the UN for this Time
The gambit is two-fold. First, to portray the Syrian government as
guilty of yet more “crimes against humanity,” which then justifies the
second – passing a binding UN Security Council resolution that would
give the West direct access to their terrorist proxies inside of Syria
under the guise of providing “humanitarian aid.”
This is being done in conjunction with plans to drop the pretense of “moderate rebels,” and fully back Al Qaeda and other extremist fronts through a network of proxies including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, and Jordan.
In a recent e-mail leak released by the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA),
correspondences between US contractor Matthew Van Dyke and Western
journalists revealed that in addition to intentionally deceiving the
public regarding the nature of the conflict, aid shipments were being
used to smuggle in equipment, fighters, and weapons.
Van Dyke being an armed militant himself, along with those in his
company, riding freely back and forth between Libya and Syria on aid
ships should raise suspicions at the very least regarding “aid” the UN
plans to provide entrapped terrorists.
Stories like Alakhbar English’s “Qatar Red Crescent Funds Syrian Rebel Arms,”
also raises immense concern about so-called aid flowing into Syria
specifically to help those fighting the government. The article reports:
Sources in the investigation team said that Mahmoud
confessed to receiving around $2.2 million from Khaled Diab, a Qatar Red
Crescent official. He was then to hand the money over to a Lebanese
cleric identified as O.O., born in 1983 and affiliated with Muslims
Without Borders, in the Bekaa village of Bar Elias.
“Through the cleric, Mahmoud was able to acquire 30 RPG
launchers for $900,000 and 300 shells for $300,000, which were then
transferred to Syria by a smuggler known as Anwar or his nom de guerre
Abu Salah.” The smuggler then handed over the weapons to the Syrian
national known as Abu Abdullah in the Damascus countryside.
Mahmoud also bought 100 Kalashnikovs and an ammunitions
cache for $40,000 from the Ain al-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp in
southern Lebanon. The source added that Mahmoud entered the refugee camp
with the Syrian national Mohammad Abdullah, known as Abu Hamza, under
the guise of distributing humanitarian aid to refugees from Syria.
One can only imagine what will be bought and done with the $6.5
billion the UN has called for to assist those in terrorist-held
territory. It will most likely be fed directly into the terror networks
the NATO and its regional allies have been preparing to expand.
Should the UN decide to truly care about ending the ongoing
catastrophe that is the proxy invasion of Syria by foreign-backed
terrorists, it could always point out the true nature of the conflict
and hold those responsible for it, NATO and its regional axis, fully
accountable. Anything less is but a criminal rouse meant to
intentionally perpetuate the conflict and give the West yet another
chance to end it on terms they find favorable.
