Media Silent as House Passes Resolution for Syrian No-Fly Zone — Provoking War with Russia


Hillary Clinton’s loss was a shock to the purveyors of U.S. military hegemony, who saw in her an easier path to keep the Syria conflict going. Secretary of State Clinton was instrumental in the early days of Syria intervention, in 2010 making a series of demands for Syria to get in line behind the U.S. vision for the Middle East.

When Bashar al-Assad refused to roll over, regime change became the talking point of Washington think tanks and mainstream media echo chambers. Clinton promised during her campaign to ramp up action in Syria, to the delight of the same neocons who brought the Iraq invasion. She acknowledged that many civilians would die if the U.S. set up a no-fly zone.

Establishment of a no-fly zone is the next crucial step toward full-scale war. It would mean Syrian planes could not fly in their own airspace and would bring the disturbing prospect of U.S. planes shooting down Russian planes — which are operating there on invitation from Syria to help battle ISIS.

Soon after the presidential election, key warmongers in Congress began formulating plans to make increased conflict a near certainty, complete with the kind of propaganda peddled before the Iraq attack. While everyone was distracted by the election of Trump, six representatives took advantage of the lame-duck session and suspended “normal rules” to bring us H.R. 5732.

The Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act of 2016 includes Section 303, titled: Assessment of potential effectiveness of and requirements for the establishment of safe zones or a no-fly zone in Syria.

As reported by Consortium News:

Late in the day, on Nov. 15, one week after the U.S. elections, the lame-duck Congress convened in special session with normal rules suspended so the House could pass House Resolution 5732, the “Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act” calling for intensifying the already harsh sanctions on Syria, assessing the imposition of a “no fly zone” inside Syria (to prevent the Syrian government from flying) and escalating efforts to press criminal charges against Syrian officials…

Most strikingly, the resolution calls for evaluating and developing plans for the United States to impose a “no fly zone” inside Syria, a sovereign nation, an act of war that also would violate international law as an act of aggression. It also could put the U.S. military in the position of shooting down Russian aircraft.

The suspension of rules procedure is supposed to be used for “non-controversial” bills such as naming Post Offices, but this small group of lawmakers used it to pass a drastically important bill. The blatant abuse of power shows the desperation in the neocon ranks.

Donald Trump has spoken out against regime change, but considering his unpredictable behavior, the actual position of his coming administration is anybody’s guess. Trump’s pick of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as national security adviser is not a good portent.

Earlier this month, Flynn strongly supported Turkish President Erdogan in an op-ed at The Hill, suggesting he is under siege by “radical Islam” and desperately needs our help. Flynn seemed to dismiss Erdogan’s crackdown on political dissidents and the dubious circumstances of the attempted coup which allowed Erdogan to solidify his power.

It may be no coincidence that just days ago, Turkey — a NATO ally — urged to U.S. to move forward with a no-fly zone in Syria. Incidentally, no one seems to have paid attention to a damning investigative report finding that the “Turkish government under President Erdogan is covertly providing direct military, financial and logistical support to ISIS, even while claiming to fight the terror network.”

While both Russian and U.S. bombings have resulted in civilian deaths, completely missing in the Western narrative on Syria is how U.S. intervention in the interest of regime change was the catalyst for today’s hellish conditions in that country, and the resulting flood of Syrian refugees.

As we have reported before, the Pentagon nurtured the Salafist sect in eastern Syria — to help the U.S. and its allies achieve regime change – and these extremists went on to become the violent terror group called ISIS.

In order to keep the American public ignorant of reality in Syria, and to maintain the specter of terrorism in order to justify massive military spending, politicians’ propaganda must be so complete they believe it themselves.

This was demonstrated during the 40-minute “debate” session among the six lawmakers who pushed the bill through.

They claimed the Obama administration has been “sitting back and doing nothing” as violence worsens, and Assad is “killing millions of his citizens.” All of this is, of course, false.

“By late 2011, the U.S. was actively coordinating, training and supplying armed opposition groups. When Muammar Gaddafi’s Libyan government was toppled in fall 2011, the CIA oversaw the diversion of Libyan weapons to the Syrian armed opposition, as documented in the Defense Intelligence Agency report of October 2012.

These weapons transfers were secret. For the public record, it was acknowledged that the U.S. was supplying communications equipment to the armed opposition while U.S. “allies” — Saudi Arabia and Qatar — were supplying the weaponry. This is one reason that Saudi purchases of weapons skyrocketed during this time period; they were buying weapons to replace those being shipped to the armed opposition in Syria. It was very profitable for U.S. arms manufacturers.

Huge weapons transfers to the armed opposition in Syria have continued to the present, with the U.S. government even more directly involved. This past spring, Janes Defense reported the details of a U.S. delivery of 2.2 million pounds of ammunition, rocket launchers and other weaponry to the armed opposition.

So, the political claims that the U.S. has been inactive are baseless. In reality, the U.S. has done everything short of a direct attack on Syria. And the U.S. military is starting to cross that line. On Sept. 17, the U.S. air coalition conducted a series of airstrikes on the Syrian Army in Deir Ezzor, killing 80 Syrian soldiers and enabling ISIS to launch an attack on the position. Claims that it was a “mistake” are highly dubious.”

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights estimates the actual death toll as: “killed pro-Syrian forces – 108,000; killed anti-government forces – 105,000; killed civilians – 89,000.

In no way is this downplaying the significance of these horrible deaths at the hands of warring forces. But it is extremely important to point out the highly exaggerate claims of U.S. politicians in their push to bring even more death and destruction to Syria.

The Friends Committee for National Legislation analyzed House Resolution 5732 and found it would make a peace agreement more difficult, not less.

Any peace agreement that leaves Bashar al-Assad in power would be seen as a failure of U.S. hegemonic foreign policy, which has pushed regime change for years. It would also be seen as a victory for Russia, which is helping Assad fight ISIS and U.S.-funded “moderate rebels” attempting to overthrown Assad.

Even the title of the resolution — ‘Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act’ – is based on a CIA-funded propaganda hoax involving alleged torture photos that was used to sabotage a 2014 effort at peace negotiations.

Unsurprisingly, the Israel lobby is campaigning for the passage of HR5732, as Israel is officially at war with Syria and continues to illegally occupy the Syrian Golan Heights. Removing Assad would make things easier for Israel to permanently seize this fossil fuel-rich area, and would strike a blow to its perceived enemies in Lebanon and Iran.

Despite the grave ramifications of HR 5732, the media is silent. The media outlets now professing to hold the monopoly on real journalism have not said a word about the shocking abuse of “suspended rules” in the House, and the utter propaganda being spewed out by lawmakers, to save their crusade for regime change in Syria — even if it means World War III.

    When are these “Treasonous”, because that’s what Neocons are,Traitors….when are they going to be stopped by the so called “Honest” politicians?….when there is no planet left to save?. These Neocon, warmongering representatives have “misused” and abused the “Lame Duck period”, therefore the legislation that they have pushed through without oversite or knowledge never mind “Consent” of the people, This legislation HR5732 is not only non binding, in actual fact it is illegal and should be stricken from the record!….Where are these uncorrupted representatives? or Congressmen and women? or is the swamp just full to the brim and overflowing with so much corruption that it’s past the point of saving? If so the people would be better off blowing the swamp to kingdom come!….There must be at least one honest politician?…. surely one, to come forward and speak up for the people against this flagrant abuse of power?……Where are you when we need you?

        You guys are so busy hating phony liberals, you can’t even see the snakes in your own midst. This wing of the GOP started under Kissinger under Nixon. They’ve always promoted psychopaths. Many of you backed them during the run up to the Iraq war and reflexively shouted down liberals due to blind partisanship.

        Keep playing the us vs them game, disappointments like this will come swift because they think we’re stupid and they’re right.

        • Brummbar

          You show your ignorance cuck. Hillary IS Henry Kissinger, Nixon, Zbigniew Brzezinski, and all the rest of the globalist neocons. You’ve been conned, because you’re a stupid liberal and don”t know your as* from a hole int he ground. Hillary spoke in front of the CFR telling them that it was good she was so close at the State Dept. that she could just walk down the street for advice. The Red queen is all for war and ruined Libya and Syria.

          • Fresh

            “Hillary IS Henry Kissinger, Nixon, Zbigniew Brzezinski, and all the rest of the globalist neocons.” YES!!!!

            You’re so brainwashed by partisan politics you can’t even see that you’re agreeing with me. Neocons were Democrats who became Republicans because liberals rejected their ideas. The GOP welcomed them but Neocons go where the power lies, which is why they are pushing Romney to remain relevant.

            If they succeed, I hope you’re thinking freely enough to understand the corruption they bring. They will destroy Trump. Do you really trust Romney? He’s just as amoral and cynical as Hillary.

            I’m not a Trump supporter but the liberal ideas I like that he has promoted are, fair trade, no more regime change wars and infrastructure development, which is decades overdue.

            Get out of the partisan bubble. Your post is full of anger. No real liberal liked Hillary and we all hate Neocons, Likud, the GCC and NATO.

          • Fresh

            “Hillary IS Henry Kissinger, Nixon, Zbigniew Brzezinski, and all the rest of the globalist neocons.” All true.

            You’re so hyper-partisan that you don’t even realize you’re agreeing with me. You guys are too caught up in that lie. Think for yourself.

            Neocons infiltrated the GOP in the late 60s because liberals hated war. They knew it was a racket. Neocons were all betting on Hillary because Trump was proposing to end their insanity. Now, since that failed, they’re pushing Romney. If he gets in, it will be the exact same foreign policy as Bush.

            Bush’s policy was, basically, to promote and support Likud, the GCC, NATO and Neoconservative insanity. We’re supposed to also continue our inhumane policies in South/Central America and Mexico. Our drug/economic policies haven’t changed much since Noriega. Just like we support terrorists and criminal gangs in Africa and the ME, we do the same with our neighbors in the South.

            You’re hating Neoconservative insanity under Obama but because you’re a partisan, you’ll accept it under Trump. That’s my point. No one is sophisticated enough to view the people behind the parties. No one wonders why much of the system never changes.

          • Brummbar

            I have no plans to accept neocons or liberals either one. They are the two wings on the same bird. The deception is that liberals believed Obama would be their savior when in fact he turned out to be the same wolf in sheep’s clothing that Bush was. He carried out the same neocon plan of mid-east destruction and conflict to keep the wars going (with Hillary’s help) and helped to try and fulfill Kissinger’s dream of the New World Order. The Problem is that Trump, for all his foibles, threw a monkey wrench in the works by being willing to kill TTIP and TPP , driving the globalists crazy. We’ll have to wait and see if in fact he is a duplicitous as Hillary, but having the known criminal Hillary out of the picture is assurance that Globalism is not yet cast in stone. Now Soros (a globalist member of the cabal) is willing to fund anarchy and chaos throw groups like BLM , move- and all the others. He would nothing more to see this country under martial law before Trump can get it. He and his ilk would love nothing better than destroy this country and make it into a pliable, third world dictatorship run by a clod like Obama or similar buffoon.

          • Fresh

            I have no plans to accept neocons ….

            Most of you already have accepted NWO ideas under previous presidents. Bush coined the term, as you know. As for liberalism, most of what Neocon/Corporate Dems have pushed has been to the right of Reagan, except for social issues. Under Obama, it was finally clear to many of you because he was hated by the right.

            Had McCain or Romney won, just like phony liberals, you guys would have supported their policies, although their ideas are more radical than Obama’s. We would be at war with Iran or/and Russia had they won.

            If Trump selects Romney, Guliani or Bolton, it’s business as usual. His supporters will not care. As long as he claims to be sticking it to liberals or if they think liberals are doing worse than they are, then, they’ll be fine. He’ll just say cucks, snowflakes or welfare and they’ll allow him to continue down the insane path we’ve been on.

            The Empire collapsed already in 08. We’re on life support, as the connected groups keep getting their tax cuts and austerity, which is scheduled under Trump. If he has a healthy infrastructure bill that we’ve been begging for since Bill, then, we’ll offset the lack of revenue and the next collapse.

            That said, I hope he rejects most of the prevailing ideas and destroys both parties once and for all, as he’s not an ideologue. Neoconservatism needs to be eliminated. My fear is, if he’s serious, his life will be in danger.

            We’ll see, wishing him well for everyone’s sake. I’m not into tribalism, only results, whoever can deliver.

            They are both fully committed to the Wolfowtz Doctrine/Full Spectrum Dominance. Obama just put on an act. The no-fly zone is, once again, discussed without revealing the costs to the American taxpayer which are considerable. The Libya no-fly zone was hugely successful, wasn’t it, did achieve regime change but instead of installing a quisling they got more chaos! But that doesn’t matter to them, they only bring war to other people, until one day other people will bring it to their streets.

    If the illegal US No-fly zone is only from certain dates, it is merely to allow Obama- sponsored ISIS/terrorists to get out of Syria, because Russia is on their tails. Perhaps Obama needs his buddies to do some dirty work elsewhere? Arrest this traitor/invader before he harms more people!
    The US is trespassing and making edicts in countries that aren’t under their governance, by a
    stretch of anyone’s imagination. The excuses of imperial one world order fanatics are not relevant, but their owned media continue to spew them for public consumption.
    The Middle East is none of our business, who they bank with, sell their oil to, etc. If we spent money instead on equipping every home in the US with solar and developed free clean energy, this warmongering and human suffering would have to end. No more selling biowarfare and then invading under the pretense to ‘find Waldo’. No more allowances for the lame duck Obama to get in his last digs at Putin.

      It’s ILLEGAL for the US military to be there at all. The only country that was asked to give assistance was Russia. The legally elected President of Syria did not want American help because America started ISIS and wanted to take down Bashar al-Assad for their own gain. This was Obama and Clinton. America had no right to take down Saddam, or Gaddafi or try and take down al-Assad. If the USA goes ahead with this illegal ‘no fly zone’ it just takes us back to a nuclear war situation with Russia.

    Neocons are psychopaths, nothing less. They remind me of the kinds of people who were tried and convicted at Nuremberg after World War Two. The Nuremberg Tribunal, by the way, condemned the Nazi high command for the crime of waging aggressive war, exactly what the neocons do constantly. America’s Nazis. They even used neo-Nazis in the illegal and bloody anti-Russian Ukraine coup. Draining the swamp means getting every damned neocon out of government, and preferably into prison. They are the most dangerous people in the world. Their policies, if followed, will inevitably lead to nuclear war with Russia. I don’t know what these lunatics think they would get from that.

      The Assad in power now is the son of the one in 1970’s. Not the same man.

      • Laurette MissChaos LaLiberte

        Understood, but that doesn’t change the fact that the destabilization of the ME was conceived and manipulated by Kissinger.

    • nick98514

      That’s a true definition of the historical facts!….you are absolutely correct.

  • PJ London

    Stupid ‘clickbait’ headline. And I was stupid enough to fall for it.
    The resolution is to ‘investigate the feasibility’.
    Well they made their $0.01 on my gullibility.

      You’re the first person I’ve seen besides myself that understands the language of the bill.
      It only asks for an assessment report, doesn’t establish or give them power to do anything.
      People are freaking out over nothing.

      • cwaltz

        What kind of “assessment” do they need? The Pentagon has already said that they assessed that enforcing a o fly zone would lead to war with Russia and Syria. Whar do they think General Dunford or Ash Carter was lying?

        • TXPatriot

          Sounds like a standard feasibility study… would a no-fly zone be effective, what are the risks, how to do it, how much would it cost, etc… only this time, they want it in writing instead of from testimony. Beyond that, asking someone to figure out the logic behind the actions of our government is close to impossible. Also, I do believe there are certain people pulling the strings who would love to go to war with Russia. Hopefully they’re not dumb enough to ever do it, but this is Congress we’re talking about.

    no fly zone usually means war zone/ This is an act of war

    Neocons and their allies in congress are a cancer on America. Have we no rational human beings left in congress? These warmongering traitors should be arrested and incarcerated. They are all a danger to humanity!

    The “Syrian Observatory for Human Rights” is just a guy in the English countryside, and he is a fraud funded by the E.U. Take anything that comes from them with a grain of salt.

  • endofwatchersbegan1/28/2011

    The aggressors appear to be the so-called US Government/traitors against the American People. These FRAUDS serve the Rothchild/Jesuit satanist Bankers and NOT the American People. They have waged subversion, robbery and murder against the American People and millions of innocent and powerless on behalf of their satanist banker masters. These crimes are grounds for their EXECUTION. Syria is a sovereign country. Who is a treasonous murdering Banker concubine to say WHO will fly where? Especially those who have enabled our enemies, called ISIS? America stands hijacked and captured by enemies within. SNAP the concubine bastards necks at the end of a rope, along with their satanist banker masters. Treason has a due at the end of a rope. God no longer bleeds. It will be awesome to see God REMOVE this satanist concubine TRASH, with vengeance. so much sooner than they comprehend.

    THE Media is always SILENT on news that you need to know. That is one of my BIGGEST complaints about the MSM and their FAKE NEWS!!

  • b.macintosh

    The west won’t win World War 3. At least we know the politicians and corporate heads and lobbyists will pay with their lives when it’s over. Small consolation because Mandarin is a tough language to learn, and depending on how the spoils are divvied up afterwards, the rest of us will find the going tough.

  • katherine cassell harvey

    And now Soros is taking the american peoples vote and making it mean nothing


    You don’t know what you are talking. Michael Flynn has consistently opposed regime change in Syria and has exposed on RT as well as Iranian TV, Obama’s complicity in creating ISIS. He is subject to the usual slanders from the neo-cons about his “ties to Russia,” He is is favor of collaboration with Russia to crush ISIS, which is Trump’s stated goal.

    Despite the grave ramifications of HR
    5732, the media is silent. The media outlets now professing to hold the
    monopoly on real journalism have not said a word about the shocking
    abuse of “suspended rules” in the House, and the utter propaganda being
    spewed out by lawmakers, to save their crusade for regime change in
    Syria — even if it means World War III.

    When you need to begin to worry,,,is when the capital of Tel-Aviv is moved to Jerusalem

      They won’t rebuild the Temple, the Ark has been lost, so no need for a place to house it in. Also no need to sacrifice that red calf

    Sec. 303 calls for an ASSESSMENT REPORT of establishing a no-fly zone, as well as safe-zones for refugees. Basically they’re asking for a feasibility study.

    I didn’t risk my life defending this country in Vietnam to have it blow sovereign nations up to satisfy the the Neocons and the Saudis. Putin, blow the now rogue US to kingdom come if they set up a no-fly zone in Syria. Start with Amherst College or Los Angeles. I’ll gladly set up a big bulls eye so you don’t miss..

  • Phil

    Putins regime has been supporting Assad with heavier weapons than the US provides to any faction of the rebels in syria, not to mention if it was not for Hezbollah terrorists support for Assad he would have fallen much quicker to the rebels, so your entire point of how the brutal war we see now is soley because of the west is mind blowingly ignorant, not to mention the point of how the US has done everything but an attack on syria to help the rebels, yet we know for a fact that the Obama administration has halted heavey weapons shipments such as advanced anti aircraft weapons to the rebels that saudi arabia wanted to give them, so again your point is false and ignorant, actualy most points are ignorant, such as the articles implication that the syrian airforce was not behind the mass slaughter and warcrimes against civilians which we can see with our eyes, the rebels never had an airforce to brutally slaughter assad so you can only blame assad for the cities of syria that have been reduced to rubble, not to mention the article suggests that a no fly zone is illegal and only proposed by warmongerers, yet you have no problems with Putins forces attacking civilian infrastructure in syria! this was typed on an iphone so spare me the grammar lesson

    ALL the land in Syria BELONGS to Israel. Syria itself is the occupier of ISRAEL’S land. So, the Golan Heights certainly belong to Israel as well.

    The real Truth about Syria has been exposed by many Peace Activists who have gone there. You should be calling your Representative for your District in your state and let them KNOW that WE Know the Truth! The whole panel discussion is on YouTube, but at least listen to what this one person says:

  • Jim Smith

    Trump needs to select Tulsi Gabbard, the anti-neocon candidate for Sec of State, to let the world clearly know US policy now opposes intervention.

  • The title of the article is misleading at best. The resolution calls for an assessment of the effectiveness of a no-fly zone, as the text of this article states.

  • Regime change in Syria was always sought for by successive US regimes since as early as 1956. Check the following post, and others on for more details about the Syrian Crisis.

    The Thieves always when raiding their targets, it is always done in SILENCE and SECRET, USA and The West are behind The Elimination of Muslims since centuries but worst thing God has given Muslim Countries all The Natural Resources which any thief is ever looking for and Allah has warned us in his Divine Book but The Messenger of Allah was too betrayed! What are the Rulers placed by The West in Arabia since 1915, are clear examples of the Muslims of the time of Holy Prophet of Islam 1436 years before, joined The Invincible Islam and hidden beneath and then examples like Israel born in 1946 and The Bankers today’s policies towards Divide and Rule was placed exactly the same way as The Prophet dies in natural death where Allah put all Mankind into greatest test till today and till Day of Judgement; who is true recipient of Allah’s Orders and Commands!

  • John Bailey

    Russia has a no-fly zone already established in Syria with a modified EMP electromagnetic pulse combined with a directed-energy weapon (DEW) that can take out anything the U.S. or NATO puts in the sky.

    You should remember that Russia is an ally of Syria and was invited to help with removing our threat. (ISIS, Rebels and the Free Syrian Army) and other so-called “moderate” jihadist groups. All backed by the United States, Turkey, the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

    Russia dealt more damage to ISIS and our bogus freedom fighters in October 2015 than U.S. and NATO in a year. Russia also established a no-fly zone that will take out anything we send into it and what you take as your government knows this and still wants to play with fire.
