When #Sydneysiege Happened in Syria

The Abbott regime sent its heavily armed regime forces and shabiha to storm a beloved chocolatey place where a moderate anti-Abbott rebel was protecting peaceful protesters.

Standing under a dark version of the flag of Saudi Arabia the protesters had presented (vid) simple and reasonable demands. Instead of agreeing to step down or to at least to offer a compromise Abbott coldly rejected all of them.

During the guns blazing assault (vid) by regime forces the honorable moderate guard, Mufti Sheik Haron, was killed and several peaceful protesters were severely wounded.

Why didn't Obama provide them with weapons to defend themselves?

Because Abbott's on board. If he were cautioning against war with Russia, or detente with China Obama would be considering regime change in Australia. It's happened before

One can see from this how much the governments of the Anglosphere care about the lives of their citizens. Why couldn't they wait the guy out? They did their raid after only about 14 hours. When you storm a hostage situation, there is always a significant risk that hostages will be killed. 2 hostages dead out of about 10 signifies a botched rescue operation. And police aren't saying that the terrorist killed those hostages, which probably means that police did.

The hostage taker was a mentally deranged individual with a criminal background and recently set free on bail! Of course there is no xenophobia or Islamohobia in beautiful White Australia. Abbott is an exponent of what is wrong with Australian culture. Loved his "shirt-fronting" of Putin at the recent G20 summit. What else to expect of a prominent member of Five Eyes and the US torture machine in Iraq and Afghanistan.

6 weeks prior to today's incident, the Aussi military/police had a rehearsal of a hostage 'rescue' plan - which took place in an inner city cafe! A nice piece of forward planning there.

I'm sitting here in the NSW State Library reading this message while just outside the building where I work is still in lockdown. This is nearly 10 hours after the siege ended. The security staff at the building do not know when the lockdown will end. It's odd that the State Library is open for business while the building across the road isn't.

From what I know the police stormed the building with guns blazing and stun grenades were thrown as well. The two hostages who died may or may not have been killed by the hostage-taker but it is certain that some of those surviving hostages who were wounded, were hit by police gunfire. Does no-one ever tell police to be careful shooting (with the risk of ricocheting bullets) and throwing stun grenades in a confined space like a café?

The press meanwhile is gloating over the recent events. It's no surprise that the Lindt café itself is just across the road from Channel 7 TV studios.

More evidence we are just chaffe for our governments to dispose of in their power games. Trapped between two groups of violent thugs - al Qaeda on one side, the Western Elite on the other.

Sending heavily armed cops in with guns and grenades to take out one lone nut screams of absolute carelessness for the hostages. But of course, it's all about "looking tough" not doing right by the citizenry.

@Jen #8, guest77 #9:

And I would not even say that the gunman/hostage taker (the correct term, not terrorist) was heavily armed. All the reports I read only mentioned his having a shotgun. That, and that the gunman kept on losing hostages suggests that he wasn't inclined to kill anyone.

It will be interesting to see whether any commentary appears in the Anglophone press about how maybe this was a reckless operation. I can't see this as a "good faith" hostage rescue attempt any more than the Yemen operation was.

There's far too much information management, of the Oz media, by Bill Shorten's (Labor) neocons and Tony Abbott's (Liberal) neocons. They are obviously milking this for its Ter'rism fear-mongering value.

ABC.au News didn't report the casualty count of the 'storming' of the Cafe until just before 6am this morning (the rescue began at about 2-20am and Mission Accomplished was declared at about 3-00am).

I was watching ABCNews24 from 3-15am to pick up some details but there was nothing new as they were 'waiting for official confirmation'. At 3-25am I switched to Russia Today. First item which came up was an 'unconfirmed report' that the siege was busted and 3 people were dead and up 9 injured. Just after 4am RT changed its version to 2 dead and up to 7 injured (RT is live so better info was available to curious foreign news outlets than ABC were allowed to broadcast until several hours after RT broadcast its version).

Due to piece-meal reporting, interspersed with lots of repetition (coverage was continuous on ABC from soon after the siege began, and hadn't ceased at 12-30pm, 10 hours after it ended), the reporting unintentionally created confusion. Specifically, at approx 4pm on Day 1, 3 males escaped the siege through a fire exit. About an hour later 2 females escaped the same way.

Soon after the initial 5 had escaped, it was reported that 2 of those received attention from medicos for pre-existing conditions - not siege-related conditions. In my, and everyone else's, mind all subsequent reports of 'people requiring treatment' were assumed to be additional to the two with pre-existing conditions. So in RT's initial report two (pregnant) women were probably mistakenly counted twice.

The Official Final Toll (today) is as follows:

Dead: 3. The male culprit, a 38 y-o barrister (f), the 34 y-o male Lindt manager.

Hurt/treated: 6.
75 y-o (f) bullet wound in shoulder (stable cond)
52 y-o (f) bullet wound to foot (stable)
43 y-o (f) bullet wound to leg (stable)
35 y-o (f) pregnant (checked and discharged)
30 y-o (f) (same as 35 y-o)
39 y-o (m) police officer gunshot pellet wound to cheek (treated and discharged)

There had been NO info ofanykind on the demands of the culprit up until an hour ago.

There were 3 batches of hostages.

5 escaped between 4pm and 5pm Day 1.
6 escaped immediately prior to the storming.
5 remaining were still inside when the cafe was stormed.

Pardon me. Last line should read:

@ Demian (comment 10)

The rescue operation seemed reckless to me. Police stormed the cafe (an enclosed space) shooting and throwing stun grenades. The possibility that bullets might ricochet and strike hostages was very strong.

Convenient also that the hostage-taker is dead so he cannot defend his actions or motivations.

Posted by: Jen | Dec 16, 2014 1:16:32 AM | 16

@Jen #16:

Here's what Bloomberg has to say:

Police stormed the cafe after gunfire was heard inside, New South Wales Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione told reporters. …

The cafe’s manager, Johnson, died in the final moments of the siege as he attempted to wrestle a shotgun from Monis, who was dozing off, Nine television network reported.

For some reason, Bloomberg is unwilling to provide a clear narrative of what happened. But it sounds like the manager got shot and killed when he tried to grab the shotgun from the gunman, and that shot (or shots) is what prompted police to storm the cafe. So maybe the police were not all that reckless, although their shooting half of the hostages (h/t Hoarsewhisperer) does not impress.

I will tell you why Obama and war monger McCain did not provide weapons for them to defend themselves. McCains mercenary force called ISIL is trying to prevent Iraq, Iran and Syria ffrom completing a pipeline. And I think Obama is being strong armed by the proxy war profiteers hence all the White house breaches. They are terrrorizing and threatening Obama. By the way I feelv all leaderss get strong arm to doing things they know that are not beneficial for their countries citizens and foreign poliiicy status.

Conveniently, the mid-term Oz budget speech that day with a $60b hit, aud$ racing to usd$0.80 and the worst trade balance figures since records began in 1959 were conveniently washed to the back page and now forgotten.

The conservative party (here called the liberals) are panicking with their economic 101 theories and credentials in tatters. Tony 'shirtfront' Abbott is dropping his 'budgie smugglers' at falling poll ratings and the msm are now hinting he'll be gone as leader b4 the next election.

It may not be related and just coincidence -- but it is sure dam convenient.

Abbott is little Johnny Howard's (of the GWB & Blair Iraq trio) conservative successor and although well educated he is little more than a mental thug and political bully. He spent years in opposition pulling down the dysfunctional Labor governments and then cries fowl when he gets in (well, Labor were tossed out) and cannot get his right-wing corporatism agenda into immediate action.

Of course, the conspiracy scenario, which any creative futurist must have in the back pocket, would consider this very troubled soul, and who was no saint, may have had 'special' treatments while in prison care and along with the human excrement skin lotion and prison brutalization may have become susceptible to certain 'triggers' to go off at an appropriate time. His last appeal thrown out of court on Friday would have given him the weekend to be 'prepared' for action. He turns up alone with a shot gun forgets his flag and has to ask for one (a good trick by the handlers which gave all day tv news audiences the Moslem ISIS narrative to feed on) and then falls asleep by 2am when the siege occurs in prime tv time for the northern hemisphere. Hmmmm, ....??? That was well thought out for a long-term action plan (not!).

The chocolate shop owner dies a hero (and he probably was), Lint gets max global coverage (ok, -ve but better than nothing) and maybe some free Ukrainian stock, and a young establishment legal figure catches a bullet from some gun. It will be interesting to see what the autopsy finds -- if it's a police bullet then the state can expect a massive law suit, imo.

Abbott then plays the 'powerful and balanced leader script' and we all get on with saving the country by blowing our plastic credit cards for a consumer Xmas again. Yawn.... :-(

@blowback #20:

Apparently the gunman had started to fall asleep, which prompted one of the hostages to try to grab the gun from him. Apparently, the response of the gunman was to shoot the man who tried to grab the gun from him. I don't think it's unreasonable for police to storm into a hostage situation once a shot has been fired.

Posted by: Demian | Dec 16, 2014 6:44:28 AM | 22

From what I can tell, if these pumped up security jocks had waited another hour or so and quietly pumped in some sleeping gasses through the air-con (and the cafe 'hero' had just sat it out instead of jumping the guy) then they would all have been likely able to walk out alive after the cops had walked in the front doors and taken the patient to hospital where he obviously belonged.

Instead we get a global news feed on the terrorist theme (and they are probably grinding their teeth that they could not get 'Putin' in there somewhere -- perhaps they'll find a secret message in his wallet from the Kremlin?) and a local branch of the military industrial protection complex is guaranteed not to get a budget cut in the next wave of austerity measures.

Sorry, in these times I take a cynical 'precautionary' principle by default until proven wrong by the established facts.

Then the shop manager/have-a-go-wannabe was an idiot although he didn't deserve to die. I agree that once a shot was fired, then the police/army response was probably justified but it shouldn't have been necessary.

I was wondering about that, too. I didn't get the impression that the gunman was doing a good job of keeping out of sight.

Do you know what the radio host said was wrong with using a sniper? That would seem to be SOP. (The only thing I know about how to handle hostage situations is what I've seen in movies and on TV.)

Australia Refused Iran’s Previous Attempts to Extradite Sydney Attacker

http://news.antiwar.com/2014/12/16/australia-refused-irans-previous-attempts-to-extradite-sydney-attacker/
Iranian officials say that Monis had been wanted for decades over fraud he committed while the manager of a travel agency, and that he had fled to Australia under a fake name in the late 1990s.

Iran tracked Monis down, and sought to extradite him from Australia, but the Australian government refused when Monis sought “political asylum.” During his time in Australia, he was charged with multiple crimes, including accessory to murder of his ex-wife, but was out on bail.

Monis also faced more than 40 sexual assault charges in Australia on various women, after he declared himself a “healer.” Monis went on to claim himself a Sunni cleric, though he was not.

the bali bombing.....
[a compilation of comments from various sources including globalresearch, the cutting edge, now defunct voxfux, the explosive joe vialls who died of a mysterious chest pain right after his expose on the sea tsunami etc]

*the Bush regime demanded that President Megawati Sukarnoputri, publicly refute the involvement of the U.S in the attacks. No official retraction was issued. Not only did President Megawati (the daughter of Sukarno) remain silent on this matter, she also accused the US of being:
a superpower that forced the rest of the world to go along with it… We see how ambition to conquer other nations has led to a situation where there is no more peace unless the whole world is complying with the will of the one with the power and strength.” After these wise words, did she need to be taught a lesson....another bombing in 2005* ?

malaysia hosted a tribunal in kl which indicted bush, blair as war criminals.
wow, the payback were fast n furious....mh17, mh37 !


*No group stepped forward to take public responsibility. Immediately after the bombing, the FBI, the Australian Secret Service and British secret police swooped in to the bomb site and took charge of the investigation,. The Indonesian authorities and the Balinese police were indignant but powerless to intervene. The first people on the scene almost immediately were the FBI, despite it being a 17-hour journey from the USA. Australian police arrived within 24 hours. The actual bombers may have escaped from Jakarta airport that night, as flight logs were found to be missing from air traffic control that day and the night of the 12th, and for no other night.*

ever notice every time there's a *crisis*, the usual suspects were the first ones on the scene to assume command.

*All soil and debris was removed from the area and dumped far out at sea.
In addition to destroying forensic evidence, the fact that the "international investigation team" bulldozed both sites and surrounding areas *

hmm, shades of 911 , mh37, mh17 ?

the bombshell !

indon's former president, Abdurrahman Wahid
*Indonesian police or military officers may have played a role in the 2002 Bali bombing, *

in fact soros icg said as much, but it failed to go one step further, viz,
the deep state in indonesia just like turkey etc., is intricately linked to cia, thus mossad !

as always , the clinger is ....cui bono ?

*The Bali bombing was used by the Australian Government to push through draconian laws, and push for a commitment to the ‘Wars against Terror’, overcoming aussie resistance to join the murcunts rape of iraq.

It links rage and anger of generations of Australian people who saw images of bloodied fellow Australians and scrolling lists of body counts on their TV to the “Evil of Islamic Terrorism.”. It is a Link-Bomb for certain. And it’s a SpinBomb too. It forces Prime minister Megawati’s hand to play Bushes geostrategic terror game. It forces them away from the vital tourist industry to play ball under the crushing thumb of oppressive debt and IMF restructuring for what remaining industries they do still have. It’s a SpinBomb in that it may reverse Australians resistance to Bushes aggressive global rampage. And it spins the entire country and people of Indonesia into a spiraling trap of an ever increasing military rule, which had after decades started to release its grip on that country.*

Tony Abbott is already using the siege to upgrade Oz's (Fake War on Terror) anti-Ter'rism laws to deny publicly funded Legal Aid to people accused of crimes - by Tony and/or other neocon politicians. This is a clear breach of the democratic principle of Separation of Powers between Parliament and the Judiciary and a very BIG breach of Democracy (and more proof that Phony Tony is an enemy of democracy).

It is complete and utter bullshit for Abbott to claim that Monis (like anyone (eg Neocons) with plenty of money) had evaded Justice. The fact is that he had exhausted ALL of the legal options which money can buy, and was about to stand trial for the crimes of which he was accused.

Posted by: Hoarsewhisperer | Dec 17, 2014 11:25:21 PM | 34

Despite the fact that the Police, and only the Police, know exactly what happened when the Lindt Cafe siege was busted, there is as much silence from Officialdom on those details as there is on the demands made by Monis.

From listening to Officialdom the only thing we know for "certain" is that Monis was worse than Saddam + Gaddaffi + Assad + Kim Jong Il (or Bush + Obama + Tony Bliar + John W Howard) combined.

Well caught, Sir!

Something else Tony will definitely NOT be in a hurry to talk about...
The late 1990s were in the Howard era and Tony Abbott loves J Dubya Howard almost as much as G Dubya Bush and Bibi Netanyahu love him.

What makes this so deliciously dangerous for Abbott is that it exposes the Right Wing Crank mantra "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" for the crock that it is. But better still, it is further evidence that Howard was a shameless cock-sucker, always delighted to betray Australian Values if the Yankees told him it would be good for "Honest" John Howard.

There is no doubt that, had sanity been allowed to prevail, Monis would have been deported long before December, 2014. And it's par for the course for Right-wing Cranks to blame anyone and everyone except themselves when the fruits of their secretive and myopic scheming go pear-shaped.

Interesting post and commentary. I lived downunder a long time ago... somewhat shortly after the CIA Deposed Gough Whitlam in the early '70s (may Whitlam RIP).

My first thoughts on learning about this: awwwww, why how special, the Aussies get their own PsyOps/false flag hostage situation.

Not to make light of the innocent citizens who died, but there's too much drek floating around this Monis character. Just the type that USA Fibbies like to set up for false flag operations. Why was he wandering around free with so many charges against him + Iran attempting to extradict him?

I, too, wondered why the Yobs on the SWAT Team heavy-hammered their way into that small café, esp after so many had managed to escape. What a botched job. But as one commenter, above, pointed out: we in the west must learn that we are as equally expendable to our 1% Overlords as are the peons in the third world. Take notes and be advised.

whats going on here ?

*The Sydney Siege has come and gone, with what looks like another example of a known nut case who was let out on the streets by the Security Services, only to reek havoc on the community.

Monis is said to have a disturbingly long criminal rap sheep which includes among other things, multiple counts of sexual assault, and an accessory to murder charge.
.............................
Incredibly, Monis was allowed to roam the streets on bail instead of being detained in a secure criminal or mental facility – where he clearly belonged.* [1]

likewise...
*Why such a ferocious individual like abu-bakr-albaghdadi the isis chieftain, was deemed fit for release in 2009 is not known. [2]

and...

*An anti-American Islamic fanatic is arrested in Afghanistan, flown to Guantanamo Bay and then released back to Afghan authorities. He’s supposedly seething with anti-Americanism. But after crossing the border and returning to Pakistan, his first mission is to kidnap and kill a Chinese engineer.

....................

Mehsud was anti-American. Or was he? We haven’t seen him target any high or low profile American assets since the famous 2004 kidnappings. But he has single handedly done what others failed to do: he effectively scuttled Chinese help in a major Pakistani development project.* [3]
