Crowdfunding an investigation into the war in Syria : Comments

By Kellie Tranter, published 26/11/2015

Yet Prime Minister Turnbull's unfiltered comment did not pique the curiosity of the media and the opportunity was lost to ask the Prime Minister exactly what he meant.

The 'evidence' is that we are at war with tyranny. But no. It is not effective because the coalition of the willing is too faint-hearted. Until the West toughens up, and goes in boots and all, it will not be effective and the war will not be one. That is what you should be complaing about.

Looks like Miss Kellie, OLO's bÍte noire belle of the ball, beats the bandicoot.

But for Whom does the Belle Toll?

The author seems under the impression that budgetary and decision making transparency that yields the price and design of every paperclip used by Government Departments applies

to Wars that lead to the death of Australian soldiers. Wars costing Australia $Billions.

The author clearly overestimates the Westminster style of Government.

The momentous nature of War, Miss Kellie, is Secret Mens' Business.

Kellie, first and foremost you are asking the wrong question!

You should be asking who instigated this action and more importantly, always follow the money.

There is a wealth of information which points towards energy (oil) in many people's minds and there is evidence for this assumption.

On a bigger picture, the "who" answer would eventually lead to the rise of the neoconservative guard, with a particular bent from the right wing Jewish mantra which is evident in U.S. Politics and has been on the rise since the Reagan era in the 1980s.

The ultimate aim has always been the redrawing of the map in the Middle East to benefit right wing Jewish aspirations of a greater Israel.

Whether good or bad, the aim has been to break up Iraq, Syria and other countries into smaller states, much easier to control and exploit that way. Most see the U.S. Efforts to date as abject failures, but the "who" would be most pleased with the efforts to date!

This plan has been obvious for some considerable time if you look hard enough. Australia's role is simply a further extension of US government policy, given our vassal like homage we have with the U.S.

Syria is going to plan, albeit slowly and Russia is a slight annoyance. No doubt the "who" will have contingency plans for this. It's a wait and see game.

Asking the wrong question always results in an incorrect answer, please try again.

The question of the cause of the war in Syria has been answered.
Have a read of Ugo Bardi's post to the Resilience site;

I just put a new post up on here, if I had noticed this one I would have put it here.
The title is Syria & Yemen now, Egypt next then Saudi Arabia.

I agree with Ugo although I think Egypt is likely to go bang in the
not too distant future.

Whoops, I thought that this was a General Discussion thread and so I
had not read the original article.
Does not change anything of course it just shows that the political
field does not have a clue as what is going on in the world.

I doubt very much that a lawyer and Human Rights advocate is any
different in her understanding than politicians, compared to those of
us who know that peak oil occurred in 2006 and know which way is up.
