US, UK, France push for response to Syrian 'gas attack' as UN chemical probe gets delayed 28 Aug 2013 Even as the UN team investigating the alleged chemical attack in Syria had to postpone their investigation and yielded no results, Western states continued pushing for a "firm response" amid growing speculation a strike could take place within days. A UN spokesperson on Tuesday announced that the planned visit to the site of last week's alleged chemical weapons attack outside Damascus has been postponed "in order to improve preparedness and safety for the team." Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem also dismissed the claims that the Syrian government was delaying the probe's start, saying that the "UN team did not ask to go to the site until Saturday."

The unnamed officials told NBC News on Tuesday that the "three days" of strikes would be limited in scope, and aimed at "sending a message to Syria's President Bashar al-Assad rather than degrading his military capabilities."

Edward Snowden's digital maneuvers still stumping U.S. government

Edward Snowden's digital maneuvers still stumping U.S. government 25 Aug 2013 The U.S. government's efforts to determine which highly classified materials leaker Edward Snowden took from the National Security Agency have been frustrated by Snowden's sophisticated efforts to cover his digital trail by deleting or bypassing electronic logs, government officials told The Associated Press. The government's forensic investigation is wrestling with Snowden's apparent ability to defeat safeguards established to monitor and deter people looking at information without proper permission, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to discuss the sensitive developments publicly. The disclosure undermines the Obama administration's assurances to Congress and the public that the NSA surveillance programs can't be abused because its spying systems are so aggressively monitored and audited for oversight purposes...

Hezbollah will attack Israel if strike aims to topple Assad 28 Aug 2013 A massive military strike by the United States and its Western allies on Syria aimed at changing the balance of power in the country will likely trigger a swift intervention by Hezbollah, political analysts and sources close to the group said Tuesday. Hezbollah's response will likely involve the firing of rockets into Israel, igniting the dormant front in south Lebanon, they added. However, analysts and experts predicted a limited U.S.-led military operation against sites in Syria suspected of stockpiling chemical arms or materials.

Syrian warmongering turning Obama into Bush's 'clone' - Russian MP

Syrian warmongering turning Obama into Bush's 'clone' - Russian MP 25 Aug 2013 US president Barack Obama is repeating the pattern of actions of his [unelected] predecessor, George W. Bush, in his push for a military solution in Syria, Foreign Affairs Committee chairman of the Russian Duma, Aleksey Pushkov said. "Obama is fiercely moving towards war in Syria, just like Bush moved towards war in Iraq. Just like in Iraq, this war won't be legit and Obama will become Bush's clone," Pushkov wrote on his Twitter page on Sunday. Obama and UK Prime Minister, David Cameron, agreed in a phone conversation on Saturday that last week's alleged chemical weapon attack near Damascus was "almost certainly" carried out by Bashar Assad's Syrian government.

Group wants hurricanes named after politicians who 'deny climate change' 26 Aug 2013 Maybe, in the not too distant future, we'll have a Category Six hurricane named John Boehner. The environmental advocacy group 350.org is petitioning the World Meteorological Organization to name hurricanes after politicians who are skeptical or dismissive of manmade climate change. "The campaign, at ClimateNameChange.org, kicks off with a video that brings the proposed naming system to life and features prominent climate deniers like Sen.

It's not just a national treasure, it's a world treasure," Fleishman said.

Navy ready to launch first strike on Syria 25 Aug 2013 Britain is planning to join forces with America and launch military action against Syria within days in response to the gas attack believed to have been carried out by President Bashar al-Assad's forces against his own people [but, in actuality, was carried out by the CIA-backed 'rebels' in this most recent false flag for the Exxon Mobil-BP cabal]. Royal Navy vessels are being readied to take part in a possible series of cruise missile strikes, alongside the United States, as military commanders finalise a list of potential targets. Government sources said talks between the Prime Minister and international leaders, including Barack Obama, would continue, but that any military action that was agreed could begin within the next week.
