The U.N. Dilemma with Syria

For a month the turmoil’s also known as “Arab Spring” has reachedSyria. President Bashar al-Assad battles with the upmost brutality.

Thousands of dead protesters shock the world and the ultra liberal Europeans don’t seem to understand why nobody is willing to take action against the tyrannical dictator.

As usual the European Leftist media launches the standard accusation against the United States and the United nations, claiming that they don’t care about the dead because Syria has no oil to offer. Unlike Libya who is one of the richest countries in Oil and gas resources.

Europe is the largest business partner inLibya, Europe obtains the majority of its oil and gas needs (Austria for example a total of 25% of its Oil and Gas needs) from Libya.

The United States is only allowed to pay for the War they fight on behalf of the hypocritical Europeans.

But back to Syria and the claim nobody seems to care about the dead protesters and the genocide produced by the local government. Claiming economical interest or the lack of the same is way too easy and way too far from reality.

The truth is that politics is like a chess game. And every chess player knows one always thinks three moves ahead. And that is the real reason why the United Nations cannot surmount itself to harsher sanctions against Syria.

Syria is already a financially and economically challenged country and lives mostly on its banking system, providing the bank accounts not only for Saudi Countries, but also for Iran. Iran has tough UN resolutions on their back and cannot, like any other country, perform its business publically.

Syrian Banks provide the opportunity forIran to buy and sell all kinds of goods from Russia, China, and other Iran-friendly countries, performing and processing bank services. That also includes payments from and to Terror organizations.

Also, Saudi Arabian Countries finance “questionable Groups” through Syria. Payments Saudi Countries do not want the U.S.to know about in order not to jeopardize their Oil business. Criminalists would call it money laundering.

And then there is the United Nations and here is the chess game that comes in.

Between Syria and Israel is the so called UNDOF unit. United Nations Disengagement Observer Forces, with order to protect and uphold the weapons hold status between Syria and Israel.

But the UN is not an occupant and is only there because Syria agreed to it in a contract, which means if Assad feels betrayed by the UN he can easily and without giving any explanation withdraw the permission to have this unit on his soil and that would be devastating for the UN and their radical upcoming agenda in September.

Let’s play that through for the moment.

Eventuality 1:

The United Nations not only strongly condemns, but also punishes Syria for its genocide even threatening military action, and Bashar al-Assad withdraws his permission having UN peacekeeping soldiers on Syrian property.

That is what Iran is waiting for. 427,000 Palestinian refugees from Lebanon will immediately come over the Golan Heights smuggler routes joining forces with 478,000 Palestinian refugees inSyria.

With practically no puffer provided by the UN forces 905,000 Palestinians will make a run forIsrael’s borders trying to overrun them.

Israel will have no other choice than to gather the majority of its troops on the Syrian border in order to stop the flood of Palestinians.

This is exactly what Ahmedinejad of Iran needs, claiming an Israeli attack on Syria, which allows him to come to the aid of his “Syrian brothers”.

Meanwhile, the borders to Gaza and the West bank are weakened and an additional 4.1 Million Palestinians (2.5 Million from the West Bank and 1.6 Million from Gaza) attack Israel seeing their chance to finally do what Hamas and Hezbollah dream of – the final destruction of Israel and the taking over of the entire country.

And if anybody thinks the remaining 2 Million Palestinians inJordan can be stopped they are a fool.

As of here the world has only 2 choices: Sit back and watchIsrael die or interfere with a combined force which will end in a long-lasting brutal war if not a world war or worse a nuclear war.

4,300 Syrian refuges are already inside Turkey, the Financial Times reports and thousands more are to be expected. In case of an outbreak of war on Syria those refugees could easily become guerilla fighters having enough support in a highly muslimized country like Turkey. The third World War would be on.

Either way the radical UN Agenda of building a Palestinian state in September recognized and accepted by the world community is nothing more than wishful thinking.

Eventuality 2:

The United Nations keeps doing what they do best, hold meaningless negotiations and weak condemnations against Syria assuring that Assad is not too offended and the situation clears itself up.

That way their radical Agenda of building a Palestine State in September is not in jeopardy at all.

Bottom line is: European allegations that the world does not interfere because of lack of resources is nonsense.

The U.S. does not interfere because it is not our problem and the UN considers the slaughtered victims inSyria collateral damage for their higher Palestinian Agenda in September.

So much for a self declared humanitarian organization – United Nations 

It is all about politics and Agenda

The hypocrisy of Europe on Libya and how to blame the USA

Before I get started I want to point out that this Column is not about Austria as a Country or the Austrian People. Austria itself is a beautiful country. It has tremendous historical sites to see, and the Austrian Citizens are good, friendly, and amazing people.

What this column is all about is the hypocritical brainwashing European and Austrian Governments who, just like the Obama administration, does not give a darn about the wish and desires of their citizens, but stubbornly defend, promote and indoctrinate their socialist/Marxist/already dead multiculturalism/terrorist loving politics.

These are the facts of European Hypocrisy and their desperate attempt to downplay their own failure on the Arabian politics and their desperate attempt to cover their fawning-over of Dictators even against the wish and will of the United States.

When Listening to European News Networks over Satellite such as N-24, or Austrian ORF, it is unbelievable how desperately they live in denial of their own responsibilities.

Listening to those European politicians, these days they sure admit that they might have “misinterpreted” the one or the other situation “but not without pointing the finger at the United States on all their alleged failures” instead of accepting responsibility.

The finger pointing against the United States has already started in order to cover up that the United States did not have any economical businesses in those areas nor did we have strong diplomatic relations in that region.

The entire cover-up is of course properly transported through Government owned propaganda TV stations such as ORF as well as ultra liberal newspapers (real honest and independent Newspapers are anyway not to be found except the FAZ in Germany).

And now, especially the left wing radical Newspapers and magazines such as NEWS and Österreich under the left wing radical owner Wolfgang Fellner, don’t want to hear anything about that. Now that Media act puffed up how official Austria could have ever talked to those dictators.

This is hypocrisy all the way, knowing that Egypt was armed and equipped with American Military technology because they were the only Arab country holding a military alliance with the United States.

The rest of those radical Arab nations with ties to Terrorist Networks have been under a ban by the United States, which gave the irresponsible European Union an opportunity to sell their weapons to them. And now they try to cover that up by blaming the United States.

Let’s get a few facts straight:

1)     Weapons in that area

The weapon ban against Libya was lifted by the United Nations in 2004 against the will of the United States by pressure from the European Union.

Latest news reports that European Union Companies sold alone in 2009 weapons and technology to Libya, Bahrain, Palestine, Lebanon, Tunisia, and other radical Islam countries in a net worth of at least $ 474 Million Dollars U.S. Spiegel online reports (1).

Helicopters from Italy, Fighter jets from France and Germany, Communications technology such as Internet and telephone kill switches from Germany, side arms, assault rifles and unmanned drones from Austria, Tanks from France and the UK, Crowd control weapons (used against demonstrations and to repress opposition) from the UK and Kalashnikovs from Russia just to name a few.  Russia alone has an ongoing Arms deals with that region in an amount of 40 Billion Dollar, in Libya itself, 2 Billion Dollars AHN News.com (2) reports.

As a matter of fact the standard assault rifle of the Tunisian Military is the Steyr AUG 77, reported among the top ten Assault rifles, and also used by the Australian Army and many special Forces in the world made in Austria.

1)     Social Acceptance of Gaddafi and his offspring

Less than a month ago they have cheered to Saiif al-Islam Gaddafi as a reformer, they have fawned over him whenever he was in Austria, his mother and sister have been well liked shopping customers in Vienna. Aisha Gaddafi was cheered in the Austrian left wing media as the “Claudia Schiffer of the middle east. Pointing out how beautiful and intelligent she was, showing strength against America when defending Saddam Hussein”.

Meanwhile, it was confirmed last week that while Gaddafi’s wife Saifya and his daughter Aisha were shopping in Vienna thousands of Libyan protesters were gunned down by Gaddafi.   

Gaddafi’s son Saaif al-Islam Gaddafi studied in Vienna at the IMADEC University and in the UK, and was a well liked guest in Austrian Society, praised as a reformer. And though left wing liberals now mock against the diseased former leader of the freedom party Jörg Haider for his visits to Libya and his friendship to Saaif al-Islam Gaddafi, it was actually the former Chancellor of Austria Bruno Kreisky (3) that brought the known Terrorist back into the international community.

Saaif Gaddafi visited the Vienna Opera ball, an officiell Event hosted by the Austrian Federal Government, and holds extreme close ties to the SPOE and the Austrian Government as well as to the German Sister SPD.

Spiegel Magazine in Germany says in an article from 2004 on Gaddafi: “After a Libyan court sentenced 5 Bulgarian Nurses and a Palestinian Doctor to death in a case of contaminated Blood preservation’s Brussels pressures the from Terror pope to Lord of Peace transformed President to stop the execution of the Nurses” (From Spiegel Magazine (4): Nachdem ein libysches Gericht in einem Prozess um verseuchte Blutkonserven fünf bulgarische Krankenschwestern und einen palästinensischen Arzt zum Tode verurteilt hat, setzt Brüssel den zum Friedensfürsten gewendeten Terrorpaten unter Druck, eine Vollstreckung des Urteils zu verhindern.)

1)     Political acceptance

It was Bruno Kreisky (1911 to 1990), chancellor of Austria from 1970 to 1983 that first made Muammar al-Gaddafi eligible in the international community and held close relations with him. Gaddafi himself calls him “My good friend Bruno”. The very same Bruno Kreisky that also made Yasser Arafat, leader of the Terror organization PLO, eligible and organized him to speak in front of the United Nations.

And let’s not forget Libya’s seat on the United Nations Humans rights council. Because of the acceptance of Terrorist Countries in that council, the United States boycotted them during the Bush administration, but rejoined them with Barrack Obama Fox News reports (5).

So why else do you think that Europe managed to give the slave to the UN and European Socialist/Marxist Puppet Obama the Nobel Peace Prize?

Libya got that seat, against the will of the United States, by a simple blackmail trade designed by the European Union… In order to get weapons and arms deals as well as oil and gas drilling rights for European Companies, especially Austria who was the one supporting Libya.

1)   Business connections

It is also confirmed since 2011/03/01 that the Gaddafi Clan has 1.25 Billion U.S. dollars parked in cash in Austrian banks. It is also confirmed that the “Libyan Investment Authority” holds several shareholdings of Austrian Companies such as Wienerberger bricks and more.

The Libyan Central bank holds 5 % shares on the UNICREDIT Bank group, one of the largest banks in Europe with headquarters in Italy and banks throughout Europe, including the largest bank in Austria called “Bank Austria” (another socialist affiliated bank).

The largest Oil drilling company in Libya is OMV. OMV is a former government owned oil and Gas Company partially privatized in the late 90’s keeping the vast majority (25% + 1 share) in the hands of the Austrian Government. OMV is also known as being extremely affiliated with SPOE, the socialist Party of Austria. Two of the past three chancellors from the SPOE started their careers in the OMV.

Austria retains 25% of its Oil and Gas from Libya, and more than 50% of the remaining 75% is coming from Russia.

Austria was never shy to decry human’s rights violations when it came to protesting against the treatment of those “poor misunderstood” Terrorists at Gitmo. In Libya on the other hand Austria kept silent in order not to endanger its economical interests… The Gaddafi’s were well liked business partners.

So it is not a miracle that the current SPOE leadership around SPOE chancellor Faymann took their sweet time to freeze Gaddafi’s accounts and business connections calling on the European Union for guidance.

Or was it the hope of the European Union, as usual, that they would find a consensus on how to deal with Libya and still keep Austria’s business interests?  Maybe the EU was hoping to reach some sort of agreement where Austria could “officially” avoid having to freeze the money and properties of the Gaddafi’s and then somehow return it to them when the dust settled.

No matter who will follow Gaddafi or any of the fallen dictators, it will be infiltrated by radical America hating Muslim groups. History has shown us that the naive hope things will turn to the better and democracy will be established is a misjudgment.

The countries are poor and the people are now expecting manna to fall from heaven and that the western world will flood them with money, but as soon as that does not happen radical Muslim Terror organizations like Al Qaeda and their pied-piper’s are going to have a feast.

We are talking about the European Union members here. Al Qaeda in Maghreb makes a living of kidnapping European Tourists and dragging them through the uncontrolled desert between Tunisia and Libya. From the ransom money they finance their Terror attacks on America.

The European Union knows about that and though, officially not negotiating with Terrorists, they had no shame in using Saaif al-Islam Gaddafi’s alleged charity foundation and Saaif himself to negotiate and pay the ransom. The fact is that the European Union finances Terrorism through the backdoor, which they apparently consider the lesser evil.

This happens with German tourists all the time and the latest was the kidnapping of 2 Austrian (5) citizens in 2008 or Italian (6) Sahara tourists kidnapped by Al Qaeda in 2011.

And the European Union has now the impertinence to put the blame of the northern Africa situation on us the United States. A situation they caused, it was the European opportunists who accepted and snuggled the past centuries with those Terrorists and now when it comes to taking responsibility for their idiotic politics they want to point the finger at us.

But that is normal for them: They want us THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA to solve their problems and once we solve them we should get the hell out of Dodge and leave those Europeans the field of business.

Sure, with Obama that might work, but not with the rest of America. And Obama with the help of God Almighty will soon be history and a one-term president.

Did Obama screw the situation: Definitely.

When I asked on Facebook: Is Obama 1) way over his head on that situation, or b) incompetent or c) too dumb to handle it, well he is none of that.

He knows what he is doing. He is playing that regions economy right into the hands of the European Union and the radical Muslim Terrorists (see my previous column) (7).

May God have Mercy

And

May God Bless America
