One 77-year-old’s search for the truth: 9/11, election fraud, illegal wars, Wall Street criminality, a stolen nuke, the neocon wars, control of the U.S. government by global corporations, the unjustified assault on Social Security, media complicity, and the "Great Recession" about to become the second Great Depression.

THE PRECEEDING BLOG BY PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS STATES THAT IN SYRIA "THE FACTS ARE DIFFERENCT FROM THOSE PRESENTED BY THE PRESSTITUTE AMERICAN MEDIA AND MEMBERS OF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT."

Pepe Escobar: US will continue to arm anti-government rebels in Syria after veto
For several months anti-government rebels have been protesting the government led by Bashar al-Assad. In the past few days the violence in Syria has increased radically and over the weekend the Syria resolution proposed by the UN Security Council was vetoed by China and Russia. Many have criticized the two countries for the veto but many feel Syria will share the same fate as Libya if the resolution passes. Pepe Escobar, Asia Times correspondent, joins us to look at the bigger picture.

Blogger's Note: A year or so ago I came across a couple videos by Pepe Escobar on his theme of "Pipelineistan." But I subsequently lost track of his publications until last week when I friended him on Facebook and then asking where I could find his latest reporting. He vectored me to Russia Today, from which I selected the two videos above. Those wishing to learn more about Pepe's concept of Pipelineistan should watch the video below.
