America began to arm the Syrian opposition. As transmits correspondent ITAR-TASS Ivan LebedevThe United States began supplying certain types of weapons to the Syrian opposition detachments. This was announced at a press conference in Washington by the representative of the National Coalition of the opposition and revolutionary forces of Syria, Khalid Saleh, who arrived in the US from Turkey as part of a delegation to hold meetings in the administration and Congress and urge US lawmakers to approve the military operation in Syria.
According to Saleh, more recently, the United States is "supplying the Supreme Military Council with some types of weapons" to the "Free Syrian Army." This group was able to convince the States that American weapons "will not fall into the wrong hands."
According to American estimates, the number of Syrian rebels is approximately 100 thousand people (25% of them may belong to extremist groups).
Strengthening boundaries. The Syrian army is strengthening its defensive positions on the approaches to Damascus. Military engineers create concrete barriers and dig anti-tank ditches, the channel notes "RT" with reference to ITAR-TASS.
According to the Colonel of the National Defense Forces Ali al-Safi, the command carried out preventive operations in Eastern and Western Guta, not allowing the rebels to concentrate forces under the capital in front of possible American strikes.
“Possible enemy breakthroughs are blocked, first of all, from the roads leading from the Lebanese, Jordanian and Iraqi borders,” he specified. According to the colonel, the operation "Shield of the capital" aims to "create a security zone around the city at the maximum distance from its center."
A spokesman for the Free Syrian Army, Luei Mekdad, said that the opposition "has mobilized all its forces and is preparing for an offensive." “We expect that the US missile strikes will cause a wave of desertion in the ranks of government troops, which will facilitate the implementation of plans to seize Damascus,” he said to Al-Hayat. At the same time, Mekdad denied that the SSA had handed over to NATO a "list of strategic sites." According to him, this is not necessary: American and Israeli intelligence "are perfectly aware of where they are."
At the same time, Mr. Mekdad did not deny that there was an agreement between the SSA and the "international headquarters", according to which the rebels would receive information in advance "on what goals the first blows would be inflicted on."
A chemical provocation is being prepared. Some media reports that opposition militants are going to strike at Israel with the use of chemical weapons - from the territory controlled by the Syrian authorities. The goal - the organization of large-scale provocations, writes "RT"referring to ITAR-TASS.
Earlier, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel is ready for any scenario. "We do not participate in the civil war in Syria, but if we see any attempt to attack us, we will respond and respond with all our might," he said.
Fake evidence. Participants of the briefing entitled “Human Rights and Armed Conflicts: US Threats to Use Force against Syria and International Law”, held during the 24 session of the UN Human Rights Council, were shown evidence of falsification of photographs and video footage of victims of a chemical attack in the Damascus suburb of 21 in August. This was stated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, transmit "Vesti" with reference to Interfax.
The speakers at the briefing were international experts, Syrian public and religious figures, as well as Anastasia Popova, a reporter for the Russia 24 channel, who had worked in Syria for a long time.
Convincing evidence was provided that the videos and photos of the victims of the 21 August chemical attack were pre-fabricated. Numerous witnesses, unanimously claimed that the militants used chemical weapons in the Eastern Guta area.
The report says: “It was emphasized that the international community does not support the idea of the United States to strike at Syria. This, in particular, is evidenced by the results of the G20 summit in St. Petersburg. It was stressed that external intervention would entail civilian casualties and would result in a humanitarian catastrophe for Syria and the region as a whole, playing into the hands of extremists. It was noted that the American leadership should be responsible for the unlawful threats of use of force against Syria. There were calls for the UN to prevent an attack. ”
Another direct evidence of the use of 21 gas in August by militants has been received.
The moral debt of Pierre da Prata. Belgian scientist Pierre Picchinin da Prata, freed from captivity in Syria, reported that Islamists had organized a gas attack near Damascus. This tells newsru.com with reference to the TV channel "RTL".
“I happened to hear the conversation of the militants on the preparation of a gas attack with the aim of provoking a foreign invasion. To report this is my moral duty, ”the ITAR-TASS Belgian quoted.
It is noted that Pierre previously always spoke in support of the Syrian opposition. Since the beginning of the unrest in the SAR, he has visited this country seven times. He was taken hostage again.
Russian proposal, from which America can not refuse. Russia's proposal to transfer Syrian chemical weapons under international control was of interest to the world community. Barack Obama said that such a measure could be a breakthrough in the protracted conflict, reports Interfax.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov explained that the proposal was not a complete Russian initiative, but was born during Russian-American negotiations. At a joint press conference with Foreign Minister of Libya Muhammad Abdel-Aziz Lavrov said: “It grows from contacts that we had with our American colleagues from yesterday’s statement by John Kerry, who allowed the possibility of avoiding strikes if this problem is resolved.”
Since Russia, according to Comrade Lavrov, is always trying to use the slightest chance for a peaceful settlement, “we took advantage of the stay in Syria’s Foreign Minister Walid Muallem in Moscow to invite him to consider this opportunity.”
Currently, the Russian side is preparing a plan for putting the Syrian arsenal under international control.
As for official Damascus, he approved the initiative to transfer his chemical weapons under international control.
As transmits RIA News", Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said: “During our talks with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, he put forward an initiative related to chemical weapons. I listened carefully to his statement. In this regard, I declare that the Syrian Arab Republic welcomes the Russian initiative, based on the concern of the Syrian leadership about the lives of our citizens and security in our country. We are also confident of the wisdom of the Russian leadership, which is trying to prevent American aggression against our people. "
However, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said: The United States is skeptical that the Syrian president will hand over chemical arsenals weapons under the control of the international community, the channel said "RT" with reference to ITAR-TASS.
“We do not want this to be some kind of tactical device for dragging out time from Syria and Russia,” said Harf. According to her, the new proposal was received "against the background of a real threat" from the United States, and therefore "the Congress should all the more urgently authorize the use of force" proposed by Obama.
Regarding Syria, Barack Obama spoke on American TV last night. As expected, the president did not abandon his aggressive plans.
"Unshakable support." As the correspondent ITAR-TASS Dmitry Zlodorev, Barack Obama, speaking with a televised address to the Americans, said:
“No one disputes that chemical weapons were used in Syria. The world has seen thousands of videos and photos testifying to the attack. And humanitarian organizations have reported hospitals overflowing with people with symptoms of gas poisoning. ”
To this he added:
“Moreover, we know that the Assad regime is responsible. In the days before August 21, as we know, Assad’s supporters prepared for an attack in the area where they sprayed sarin gas. They distributed masks to their servicemen. They fired rockets from territories that were controlled by the regime in 11 suburbs, from where the regime tried to drive out opposition forces. ”
According to Obama, the United States "studied the blood and hair samples of people who were diagnosed with sarin poisoning."
He further said that the United States would study Russia's proposal to transfer chemical weapons under international control in Syria and continue to consult with Moscow.
However, Obama is committed to aggression. This is proved by the following words: “When a ban on chemical weapons is relaxed, other tyrants will have no reason to think twice before receiving poisonous gas and using it.” Obama added: "Over time, our troops may again face a chemical attack on the battlefield, and it may be easier for terrorists to acquire such weapons and use them against civilians." Well, and then Obama's speech turned to the traditional topic - Iran, without which the Syrian issue is incomplete and plunges the Israeli lobby in Washington into disheartened:
"Failure to combat the use of chemical weapons will lead to a relaxation of bans on other types of weapons of mass destruction and strengthen ally Assad - Iran, which must decide whether to ignore international norms and create nuclear weapons or go on a peaceful path."
The US response can be expressed in a “targeted military strike”. Obama explained that "this will be a targeted strike aimed at solving the precise task of preventing the use of chemical weapons and reducing the capabilities of the Assad regime."
Obama also stressed that
“Israel’s ally, Israel, can protect itself, also with unshakable support from the United States.”
It is curious that Obama's wife, Michel, spoke out against the operation in Syria, for which her husband so ardently favored, devoted both to the interests of the native military-industrial complex and to the defense of Israel.
Cute curse - just amuse. The first lady of the United States does not support military intervention in Syria. According to her husband, she does not want another war - like most of the country's citizens, they pass on "Days. Ru".
“You know, as for the members of my family, and specifically Michel, they are quite wary of any actions in Syria,” explained Barack Obama. To this he added that “if you ask Michelle if she wants us to start another war, she will say no.”
At the same time, as experts noted, Michel herself herself did not publicly express her position regarding the Syrian situation.
French loyalty. As the correspondent ITAR-TASS Oleg ZeleninThe draft resolution of the UN Security Council, proposed by France with the support of the United Kingdom and the United States, places the responsibility for the himataku at Damascus on the Syrian authorities and threatens them with taking “appropriate measures” in the event of new incidents. Three states are already seeking the adoption of their document in the Security Council. At the same time, the UN inspectors did not confirm the fact that poisonous substances were used in the SAR.
The document, which was at the disposal of journalists, "condemns the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian authorities 21 August 2013 against civilians in the province of Rif Dimashk in violation of their obligations under international law."
As for the initiative of the Russian Federation to transfer the arsenals of chemical weapons in Syria under international control, it suddenly found in the draft resolution the form of a Western ultimatum.
The document "decides that the Syrian authorities, without preconditions and under international supervision, will destroy, dismantle or neutralize" all chemical and biological weapons and their means of delivery, as well as eliminate enterprises associated with this industry.
The authors of the project propose to establish monitoring of the situation in Syria and in case of violation of the non-proliferation of chemical weapons “to take appropriate measures in accordance with the UN Charter 7,” which allows for the use of military force.
Nevertheless, such a project, we add, can be called nothing more than an echo of the Russian initiative.
Diplomatic success of Russia. About how the United States and other countries responded to the proposal of Sergei Lavrov to take international control of the Syrian chemical weapons, "Voice of Russia" experts said.
Boris Dolgov, senior research fellow at the Institute of Oriental Studies, RAS, believes that the anti-Syrian policy of the United States has failed. A scientist does not think that senators in the United States will vote for a military solution. As for the negotiations on the proposal to control chemical weapons, they will be successful. This way is the most acceptable way out of the crisis. Moreover, Russia's proposal to control chemical weapons is “a way for America, for the leadership of the United States, to save face, to get out of this situation with the least moral losses. Of course, the lobby of the US military-industrial complex will defend the decision on military strikes. But at the moment, I think there will be no military strike on Syria. ”
The head of the Society for Friendship and Business Cooperation with Arab countries, Vyacheslav Matuzov said:
“I think this is a great success for Russian diplomacy. The main thing now is to bring the investigation into the chemical attack of the militants against the peaceful Syrian population to the end. The criminals who committed this inhuman act in order to draw America into the war on their side should be punished to the fullest extent of international law. ”
As for the initiative of Russia, the analyst here believes that “it seems that the Russian Foreign Ministry took the initiative without an agreement with the United States. As the saying goes, this initiative was taken "off the wheel", in stride, it had a phenomenal impact on the world community. " Eventually
“Americans were taken aback by the initiative of the Russian Foreign Ministry. I think that now it will be very difficult for them to continue on their way to escalating hostilities, to making a limited or unlimited strike. The Russian Foreign Ministry knocked the sword out of the hands of the American rider. "
And Baba Yaga - against! As transmits RIA News" With reference to France Press, the Syrian opposition considers unacceptable Russia's proposal to transfer chemical weapons to international control.
Voting postponed. Senate vote on the resolution sanctioning a strike on Syria, postponed from Wednesday to a later date, reports "Russian newspaper" with reference to ITAR-TASS. This decision was made due to the fact that discussions about the use of chemical weapons in the SAR continue.
Previously it was expected that the Senate will vote on September 11, and the House of Representatives will do it next week.
About "pause" said Obama.
Obama pushed the pause button. The US President explained to Washington the position of Washington on the Syrian issue in connection with the new initiative of Moscow.
“If the international community gets a verifiable and implementable mechanism for controlling chemical weapons in Syria, then I’m entirely for it,” they cite "Vesti", referring to ITAR-TASS, the words of the head of the White House.
Obama noted that he had already spoken about this with the President of Russia and instructed the State Secretary to continue the dialogue on this topic with the Russian side.
If Assad refuses chemical weapons, the attack on Syria will be put on an indefinitely long “pause”. International control over the stockpiles of chemical weapons in Syria will not solve the conflict in this country, but it will probably avoid military action, Obama assured. Obama also said he was ready to consider any opportunity to avoid military intervention.
Obama himself has not decided whether to use military force if Congress votes against the strike against Syria. An assessment of the situation, he said, will be given after the vote in Congress.
What did comrade Putin say to Obama? The Russian president said that he discussed the issue of putting Syria’s chemical weapons under international control with the US president at the G20 summit, the channel reports "RT".
“We have agreed that we will update this work, intensify it and entrust the State Secretary and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia to make contact and try together to promote the solution of this issue,” said the head of state. - September 9 from London, we heard a public statement by the Secretary of State of the United States, Mr. Kerry, that the United States considers it extremely important to resolve the issue around Syria as a whole. We also believe that this is a serious question that requires additional and serious consideration. ”
“Of course, all this makes sense and can function; it can work only if we hear that the American side and all those who support the United States in this sense refuse to use force,” Putin said. “Because it is difficult to force any country — Syria or any other country, any state of the world — to unilaterally disarm if any kind of force action is being prepared against it.”
“We will work together, together with the Syrians, together with our American partners. I hope that - I repeat once again - that this will be a good step towards a peaceful resolution of the crisis, ”the Russian leader concluded.
Iran's help. The Syrian television channel Al-Ihbariya reported that the government has found a way to combat the shortage of drugs and products in the country: it agreed with Iran on the necessary supplies, it reports newsru.co.il.
It is not clear from the television message whether the supplies will be carried out within the framework of humanitarian aid or on a commercial transaction.
Criminal enemy. Saudi Arabia sent almost 1300 prisoners sentenced to death to Syria to fight the troops of Assad. As they say "Vesti" With reference to USA Today, in April, the Saudi Arabian Foreign Ministry offered 1239 suicide prisoners a pardon and a monthly cash payment to their families in exchange for participating in hostilities in Syria.
These prisoners include citizens of Afghanistan, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Kuwait and Yemen, previously sentenced to death in Saudi Arabia for murder, rape and drug trafficking.

“The grouping of the Navy consistently worked out the entire sequence of actions, communications, as well as the anti-aircraft and anti-submarine defense of ship groups and individual units, with a possible start of hostilities in their areas. Special attention is paid to protection from underwater saboteurs, ”Interfax-AVN reports, referring to the Navy Headquarters.
A representative of the agency assured that in case of foreign intervention in the Syrian conflict, Russian ships would be at a sufficient distance from dangerous areas. “We're not going to drown anyone. Nobody set us such a task, ”he specified.
Ministers without smartphones. French ministers are prohibited from using smartphones when transmitting sensitive information.

Latvian longing for "German boots." Latvian Defense Minister Artis Pabriks said at an international conference in Riga that his country was ready to hospitably accept German soldiers from 1940 onwards. He writes about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to TVnet.lv.
The exact phrase: “We are welcoming German boots on the ground here in Latvia ever since 1940” (“We have been delighted with the German boots on Latvian soil since 1940).
However, the official later said that his words were misinterpreted. A speech at the conference concerned military exercises in Latvia, in which, as it turned out, the German military would not participate (Pabriks also spoke in favor of the participation of the German side).
Regarding 1940, the minister made the following clarification: “The occupation of Latvia by the Soviet Union would not have happened if our country had been helped by the allies.”
About Ukrainian armored personnel carriers. As Tatyana Kalinina writes (vesti.ua), Kharkov armored personnel carriers arrested in India. The price of returning them to Ukraine or Iraq is half a million dollars.
“In the port of Odessa, the cars were accepted by a commission, which included representatives from Iraq,” Alexander Varvarenko, managing director of the Odessa company Varamar, which leased the Singapore Pacific ship Se Pacifica, told Vesti.ua. “But unloading did not start in Iraq.” The pretext was defects in the body. Long days of negotiations resulted in three months of inactivity in the Persian Gulf. The ship was not unloaded, and it went to the shores of India to unload a batch of Ukrainian metal. ” Here the Indians made claims: after all, the product, that is, about 70000 tons of metal, was late for them by almost three months. The ultimatum of the customer of the metal faces penalties, first of all to the shipowner.
“Ukrainian military cargo has become a hostage. The Indian court arrested the vessel, 500 000 dollars are demanded of us for a penalty, Varvarenko noted. - The supplier of the metal says that we solve the problems, and how can we do this? We only stayed because the issue with the armored personnel carriers was resolved. ”
There is no wish to cover the damage to the Indian side.
It is further reported that now the Iraqi side is ready to accept armored personnel carriers, but it is unknown when they will be able to leave the shores of India.

However, according to the Vice President for Airport Development, Dair Tokobayev, these proposals are informal.
Lied on the Internet - go to jail. Since 10 September 2013, a decree has entered into force in the People's Republic of China to punish network defamation. Strict measures are aimed at combating the dissemination of false information on the Internet, said Polina Lavrentieva ("But").
The new system takes effect if an invalid message is scanned more than 5 thousands of times, or cited over 500 times. A user who has posted such information can now be charged with defamation, which in China is punishable by three years in prison.

International Court of Justice of Colombia no decree. Colombia refused to comply with the decision of the UN International Court of Justice on the transfer of part of the waters of the Caribbean Sea to Nicaragua’s jurisdiction. This was stated by Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos Calderon, reports "Russian newspaper" with reference to ITAR-TASS.
“The 101 article of our constitution states that the borders specified in the main law can only be changed in accordance with the treaties that have been approved by Congress and ratified by the president of the country,” Santos said.

By the will of Chávez. Venezuela has officially announced its withdrawal from the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, reports correspondent RIA "News" Dmitry Znamensky with reference to Latin American media.
“We are affirming this sovereign decision,” said the foreign minister of Venezuela, Elias Jaua, at a press conference. Earlier, President Nicolas Maduro said that the inter-American legal system actually serves the interests of the United States.

9/11. As transmits correspondent ITAR-TASS Andrey Surzhansky, the US president extended for a year the state of emergency imposed in the country after 11 September 2001. The corresponding notification was sent to them to Congress.
PE was introduced a few days after the attacks 9 / 11. George W. Bush explained his decision by the "continuing direct threat of new attacks on the United States."
The order is renewed every year.
“The terrorist threat that led to the declaration of a state of emergency on 14 on September 2001 of the year continues,” Obama says in a message to Congress. “Therefore, I considered it necessary for the state of emergency to continue even after 14 September of 2013, taking into account the terrorist threat.”
According to correspondent RIA "Novosti" Larisa Saenko12, the anniversary of the destruction of the towers of the World Trade Center, was marked by another initiative concerning the "theory of internal conspiracy." The project “Rethink 9 / 11” requires a new investigation of the collapse of the Seventh WTC Tower.
The organization "Engineers and Architects for the Truth" (about 2 of thousands of specialists) calls into question the official version of the collapse of three towers - the First and the Second, and in particular - the Seventh, which collapsed about five hours after the first two. On the day of the commemoration of the dead, activists intend to submit a petition to the mayor's office and the New York legislature.
Activists claim that the Seventh Center Tower could not collapse so easily. Enthusiasts believe that the destruction of a skyscraper is the result of a controlled explosion: “The destruction of the Seventh Tower looks like a result of a controlled explosion. This technology requires preparation for weeks and can be implemented only according to a pre-planned scenario. ”
Didn't have a clue. The US administration distributed documents according to which the NSA tracked data on thousands of telephone numbers without a court order, reports correspondent RIA "Novosti" Alexey Bogdanovsky with reference to Politico.
The agency gave false testimony to the court, stating that the employees complied with the court decision and searched for data only by numbers, for which there were “reasonable and clear suspicions”. Information without judicial sanctions sought from 2006 to March 2009.
The NSA was poorly aware of how the surveillance program functioned. “No one at the NSA had a complete understanding of how the program worked at a specific point in time,” a source in the administration told the publication.
Russian can sue Obama. Is it impossible for an American president to be held accountable under international law? No problem. Lawyer Alexander Zorin can do it in accordance with Russian law, the channel reports "RT".
The planned “bombing is a violation of the UN charter, it is aggression,” says Zorin.
The lawyer explained that he intended to apply to international bodies, but it turned out that the US does not have any international legal institutions: “America first signed the decision to join the International Criminal Court, which was established in 2000, but this decision was not ratified , and the signature is revoked in 2002 year. "
But the case against Obama can be brought under Russian law: “A similar case was initiated when there was a military conflict in Georgia. It is still under investigation. The military investigators then went to the place of investigation and fixed the traces of the crimes. The guilty have not yet been established, but in the subsequent charges may be brought against Saakashvili. ”
In Obama's actions “there are signs of a crime under the 353 article of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation” (up to 20 years in prison).
The lawyer explained: “But we don’t demand to put him in prison, we demand to establish legally that his actions are a crime.”
Zorin reminds that many Russians live in Syria. If they suffer, it will be a violation of the legislation of the Russian Federation: “The Criminal Code of Russia is so constructed that if damage is inflicted on Russian citizens, then we have the right to initiate criminal prosecution, including against foreign citizens.”
The lawyer also noted that the current president cannot be held accountable: he is protected by diplomatic immunity. But you can attract public attention.
