about Syria and what is happening in Syria is all
here, in the video below, outlined and documented
during this press briefing by the US Peace Council (USPC).
We cannot be sure how long this video will be
allowed to stay on Youtube, but we urge everyone to
take 45:00 minutes of your time to see this video,
share this video, and finally spread the word about
the “vicious” war being waged on Syria.
Please share this post, and share this video, and
share these excerpts, which may provide some life
saving truth to an unjust, criminal war…and a
western media narrative that continues to push lies
and confusion to what is a clear and blatant
A delegation from the US Peace Council (USPC)
has recently returned to the US from a fact
finding mission to Syria.
The members spent 6 days meeting with Syrian
Government Officials including, President Assad,
Union Leaders, Government Opposition Members as
well as Civil & Business Leaders, NGO’s,
Charities and Universities.
The delegation stated that each member paid
their own way and that the Syrian Government
allowed them to meet whomever they wanted.
They issued their report and held a press
conference Press conference at the UN on 9th

“This is not a civil war in Syria.
That’s probably the first thing we heard, and we
heard it over and over again.
It is not President Assad against his own
people. It is President Assad and the
Syrian people, all together, in unity, against
outside forces, outside mercenary forces, terror
organisations, the names change everyday
or every other day, to try to protect their
identity, and maybe keep the connection between
the country that funded it and that group, kind
of a little bit more nebulous,

by Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, United
States, and underneath it, Israel, the state of
And these outside mercenary forces are the
ones that are terrorising the Syrian people, and
are attempting to divide the Syrian people.”

have now been liberated. And the damage done to

attacks on the Christian population.”
two things I want to mention, finally, that we
feel are really important…
is…That while the United States would like to
divide the Syrians up, by religion or within a
religion — by the different beliefs within that
religion. There wasn’t a Syrian we talked to who
would accept that.
spoke to the Grand Mufti, and he said,
‘People ask me how many Muslims there are in
Syria?’ and his response is always 23
million. That’s is the population of Syria.
when we talk to the bishop of one of the
Orthodox Churches, he answered the same thing,
the number of Christians is 23 million.
We will not allow ourselves to be
divided up the way the United States has divided
up the people of Iraq, or Libya, or Afghanistan,
or so many other countries.
We won’t allow that.
that unity, I believe, has lead to the ability
of the Syrians to withstand an invasion by the
most powerful country in the world, and its most
powerful allies in Europe, its most powerful
allies in the Middle East, with what is a
vicious attack on the Syrian people.
second is the sanctions. I have to admit that I
did not know (before I went) that the United
States has imposed sanctions on Syria in a way
that’s similar to the sanctions that the United
States imposed on Iraq in the 1990s, in
order to weaken that country and that
government, that the United States admits killed
500,000 children in Iraq, during the
Marder who, is the President of the USPC firstly
acknowledged that the US peace and anti-war
movement has been in a state of confusion about
Syria and that this has caused division within

US government to sway US public opinion, is, to
demonise the leader of whatever country the US
“Whether it’s Noriega, Hussein, Gaddafi, or
Assad, there’s a definite pattern here”
the story the US people have been told about
President Assad and Syria have been purposefully
false. Concerning the reporting he said
“This is not accidental. This is designed to
confuse people’s opinions on these Leaders.”
Jamison was blunt in his assessment and likened
this quote to the dangerous attitude of so many
Americans who think they know about Syria and
President Assad but
“….what they think they know, just ain’t so!”
opinion the US motive is to destroy Syria as an
independent secular Arab state and make it
compliant to US interests and policies, like
Iraq and Libya have become since the US
invasions and bombings of these two countries.
Just like Libya before the NATO bombing,
Syria has universal free
healthcare and free education from childcare
through to university.

change often) who they claim to be ‘moderate

was in Syria. There is nothing ‘moderate’ about
beheading a 12 year old boy.
other major story they shared was the generally
unreported sanctions that the US has imposed
upon the Syrian people.
government claims the sanctions target the
Syrian government. However they are actually
aimed at wearing down the resolve of the Syrian

experienced before the invasion, which even the
US admits killed half a million children.
Syrians cannot get baby formula, common
medication, medication for chemotherapy, child
sanctions are so insidious that they affect
medical clinics throughout Syria because they
are unable to get parts for machines used in
medical practice. Think: X-ray, CAT, MRI
machines right down to dentists drills.
President Assad has claimed from the beginning
that there was no uprising and that the country
was being invaded by foreign backed mercenaries.

Libya, and now Syria: invaded and bombed into
