FIRST POST – SEPTEMBER 10, 2013 – JOHN ESQUIRE SAVAGES OBAMA’S UNSCRUPULOUS DISPORTING WITH LAW

JOHN ESQUIRE, A READER AND FREQUENT CONTRIBUTOR WRITES THIS ESSAY FOR SYRIAN PERSPECTIVE


KERRY THE BURDEN OF PROOF

The Obama Administration led by Secretary of State John Kerry accuses the Syrian Government of committing an international war crime through the use of chemical weapons. Further, the U.S. Administration has announced that it will proceed with military strikes on Syria in response.

Due process apparently does not apply when you are in a hurry to launch an attack upon another country even when that country has never represented a threat to the national security of the United States.

Mr. Kerry has told the public that the Administration has irrefutable evidence of the crime. He asks the public to accept this proclamation without presenting the evidence. He argues that no examination of the evidence or the source of the information is necessary. He insists that the government has the right to execute a sentence of its own choosing without delay.

Imagine a prosecutor in a murder trial making his opening statement. He informs the jury that he has irrefutable evidence of the defendant’s guilt. Then without presenting the evidence, without allowing the accused to challenge the evidence and present his own evidence, without awaiting the verdict of the jury and without awaiting the sentence of the judge, he simply turns to the defendant and shoots him. Outrageous you say? Exactly!

Am I suggesting that Syria – or the Russians on their behalf – be allowed to present evidence to refute the U.S. argument? If we guarantee that right to any individual whom the state can imprison for as little as thirty days why would we not insist upon it before voting whether to plunge the nation and perhaps the world into yet another war where the accused has not attacked us or even threatened to?

Aside from suppositions and carefully worded double-speak, Mr. Kerry has not presented a single shred of credible evidence in support of his accusation against the Syrian Government. The Syrian Government has not been allowed to respond. The U.N. – whose investigation the Obama Administration insisted upon – has been told its findings will be irrelevant. Congress is told that their decision will not be outcome determinative. The American people have been told that their overwhelming opposition to an attack on Syria is irrelevant.

Member of Congress have raised pertinent questions. Representative James Langford a Republican of Oklahoma noted that it was “fair to ask where weapons originated & who manufactured” them.  Representative Alan Grayson a Democrat from Florida noted that the report from the Administration said “regime officials” not President Assad “were witting of” a chemical attack. “One could reasonably ask the question, ‘What did Assad know and when did he know it?’ and if you ask that question you will be met with a stony silence.” “We could have a situation where there was literally a loose cannon who decided to undertake this.” The Administration tells us that only the information in its possession is valid and we are not allowed to subject it or its sources to critical examination. Representative Dennis Kucinich has authored a piece entitled 10 Unproven Pro-Syrian War Claims in which he raises multiple questions about the veracity of Kerry’s ‘evidence,’ and demands full disclosure and answers

Kerry notes that the U.N. will not make a finding as to who used the weapons – a critical factor in finding someone guilty of a crime. Kerry considers Syria guilty until proven innocent while refusing to allow contrary proof. Syria will be destroyed, its people killed and its legitimate government overthrown by a regime which considers itself judge, jury and executioner for a crime which was never proven.

Take a look of a wired phone call that official sources say Syrian gov ,caught 2 rebels cannibals conversation in rural damascus. From a facebook page. ——— the Lebanese newspaper “al-Safer” has reported a voice recording for two militants in Bet Sahem town of Damascus countryside, documenting a massacre committed by them against a family consists of a man, his wife and their children besides his mother only because they do not support the militant’s actions. In a phone call, one of the armed leaders is talking about abducting a family trying to get out of its neighborhood after increasing… Read more »

They are beasts!

Mossad, CIA, SAS, DGSE and what ever quislings they create on the spot must be terminated. Lets work our way up all the way from FSA to CIA to the ‘high’ finance people living in Frankfurt, Paris and London who organise all this terror.

Makes me sick… But I agree with you totally, Michel. Don’t forget the vatican… Also pure evil of a high level.
Humanity needs to face the major problem it’s having. A battle for humanity. A battle for the future of our children.

Press tv reports that Damascus and Teheran came to a joined statement suggesting that this should be linked to the end of the aggression against Syria an the MDW of Israel. This is good and bad. It is bad because anyone could figure that Russia will never pressure Israel on MDW, so the Russians obviously acted alone without consulting Teheran, without leaving any choice to Syria. For me it suggest that Putin is looking for an excuse to drop Syria if Assad doesn’t bow to Moscow’s conditions.

I don’t see it that way. Putin has no other guaranteed client in the region. He strikes me as very practical. No dropping anybody but Kerry. Ziad

“…Only in America could leaders convince their citizens they are not launching an aggressive war when they unilaterally attack foreign nations thousands of miles away which pose no serious threat to them.” “…We speak of “institutional evil” here because the greatest evils of our time are conducted by often personally decent, even idealistic, men and women. It is not necessary to be hate-filled or personally violent for an American to commit evil today. One need only be part of, or support the police, intelligence and military activities of the U.S. Executive Branch. But the practical part of ourselves, the part… Read more »

I agree with you. It’s amazing how often we read in the history books facts which were kept from the public under one guise or another and how much less terrible it seems when you are chronologically distant from it. Ziad

“In this particular battle, Syria has won, and Obama has been defeated. Syria has effectively “dismantled, disrupted, and defeated” the ability of U.S. leaders to make any credible case or to even sound as if they possess the capacity to reason.” Russia masterfully destroyed moral grounds for any war… With a clever ploy… Kerry said: If they disarm in a week, we wont attack… and then Russia and the UN immediately suggested it, and Syria accepted,and then Kerry said, “But I was only kidding!”, because this fucker warhog wants some war… America is so weak, I feel so strong! Hahaha…… Read more »

erry does not look well.

do not look around the eyes

not at the lids or the lashes

but the eyes

look deep within

the eyes have it

they say say it

all

the eyes are the windows

of the soul

but we can see nothing

nothing at all.

this is a thing

a walking talking psy op

bred from an early age

a skull and bonesman

an analist rapist

in bred

for these moments.

problem the model keeps breaking down requiring swift boat reprogramming

no matter what the zionist software is uploaded

dead is dead

just look into the eyes of the heinz jewish thing called kohn

you will see why the blood of a syrian child must flow.
