As G8 war puppets search for new answers, the Russian president Vladimir Putin openly declined to support a Western take-down of Assad. Russia refuses to support any transitional government in Syria that involves the western and Gulf-backed rebel confab. Is this a new cold war in motion?

Putin went on to bash U.S.-Western aid sent to Syrian rebels, in a joint press conference alongside PM David Cameron, prior to G8 talks:
“I think you will not deny that one does not really need to support the people who not only kill their enemies, but open up their bodies, eat their intestines, in front of the public and cameras,” a statement which left Cameron speechless…
In another strange press conference following G8 discussion, Obama and Putin barely maintained eye contact in a dual sit down. In a scene full of tension before members of the press, both men appear drained. It seems clear that the West, along with Israel, will not get support for manufactured war making in the Middle East from Russia.
Could this be why Obama seems hesitant to commit to a full-scale conflict with Syria? Or is this more theater for public eyes?
French President Francois Hollande, acting as a surrogate for the shadowy Bilderberg group , criticized Russia for aiding Assad, upon arriving at the G8:
“How can we allow Russia to continue delivering weapons to the Assad regime when the opposition receives very few and is today massacred?” Continuing: “How can we allow that there is now proof of chemical weapons to which extent we don’t yet know, but they have been used without their being unanimous condemnation from the international community and the G-8?”
Prelude to the G8 Summit
Before the Bilderberg meeting this year at the Grove Hotel, the annual meeting with elite business men, royalty and politicians, American political analyst Webster Tarpley, claimed that the U.S., particularly Obama, may currently be blackmailed into initiating conflict with Syria. Tarpley sees Obama’s sudden rush of scandals as a result of the U.S. not being fully engaged in war with Syria. The scandals have been brought to light, as blackmail by a shadowy cabal.
Tarpley connects a series of events reminiscent of the political thriller Seven Days In May, where company men and generals look to seize control over communications in the US., staging a plot to take over government.
Eerily, this scenario is not that dissimilar of the confusion created on 9/11.
The Bilderberg group, as Tarpley suggests, had always planned to dethrone Obama, after he successfully covered for the central banking collapse scheme:
“There is good reason to conclude that the United States had narrowly escaped what might be called a veiled military coup d’état.”
Will Tarpley’s assessment of Obama being blackmailed prove to be correct?
What will be the end to Syria’s nightmare, as those in secretive meetings continue to invent ways to destabilize the sovereign nation?
We will follow these events closely as they develop…
Putin Dashes G8 hopes for Syria breakthrough
By Patrick Wintour
Hopes that the G8 summit would set out a clear route map to end the bloody civil war in Syria have been dashed after Vladimir Putin, insisted he could not back a peace conference convened on the assumption that the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, would step down.
The prime minister, David Cameron, had been hoping for “a moment of clarity” at the summit in Lough Erne, Northern Ireland, so that world leaders could agree the terms of a peace conference leading to a transitional government with executive powers.
Sources said it was now unlikely that a peace conference would take place in July, since the Russian president could not agree with the other G8 leaders on the terms of a post-Assad cabinet. The Russians insist that both sides attending any peace conference should be able to choose their own delegations.
Cameron had pushed hard for an agreement at a working dinner on Monday night, and then returned to the issue for an unscheduled second time at a session billed to focus on counter-terrorism. Putin refused to shift despite pressure from all other members of the G8.
Russia, sponsors of the Assad regime, has for months said it can bring the Syrian government to the peace talks but refused to accept a precondition involving Assad’s departure. The G8 communique is likely to focus on the need in principle for a political settlement, and a stepping up of humanitarian aid.
The French president, François Hollande, had hoped the G8 might be able to agree a date for the start of the Geneva talks, or the detailed terms of a political process.
The continued disagreement means the focus is likely to shift to the kind of arms Barack Obama is willing to give the Syrian opposition, and whether the British and French will follow suit. The US president has declared he is willing to step up arms supplies, but has given no details. Cameron is facing fierce resistance from the Liberal Democrats and his own party on the issue. Labour is also sceptical.
The Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, speaking in Kuwait, said holding the planned peace conference should not imply any capitulation on the part of the Syrian regime.
“We are categorically against … assertions that the conference should be some kind of public act of capitulation by the government delegation followed by a handing over of power to the opposition.”
He said it was essential that the result of the conference should be a transitional government containing members of opposition groups and representatives of the current regime. Britain, the US and France have always said members of the Assad regime had to attend the talks, alongside the divided Syrian National Council.
Lavrov hit out at the west for undermining the realisation of the conference by giving material support to the rebels and beginning to call for a no-fly zone over Syria.
After painful discussions in Washington last week, Obama agreed to arm the rebels, partly to ensure the rebellion was not crushed by Assad and partly in response to intelligence showing the Assad regime had crossed “a red line” by using chemical weapons. The Russians and Assad continue to deny that chemical weapons have been used, accusing the US of fabricating evidence. Read more
