On the Brink with Russia in Syria Again, 5 Years Later By Ray McGOVERN

13 September 2018 — Consortium News

The New York Times, on September 11, 2013, accommodated Russian President Vladimir V. Putin’s desire “to speak directly to the American people and their political leaders” about “recent events surrounding Syria.”

Putin’s op-ed in the Times appeared under the title: “A Plea for Caution From Russia.” In it, he warned that a military “strike by the United States against Syria will result in more innocent victims and escalation, potentially spreading the conflict far beyond Syria’s borders … and unleash a new wave of terrorism. … It could throw the entire system of international law and order out of balance.”

Idlib: Al Qaeda’s Last Stand By Tony Cartalucci

7 September 2018 — NEO

The United States has raised tensions further amid Syria’s ongoing conflict. It has issued a threat in the form of a “warning” against Damascus against retaking the northern region of Idlib.

Russia Slams Western-backed Approach Of Investigating Chemical Weapons Usage In Syria

25 June 2018 — Southfront

Vladimir Yermakov (C)

Ladies and gentlemen!

Russia’s position of principle is that the use of chemical weapons by anyone anywhere is absolutely unacceptable under any conditions. Those guilty of these crimes, provided their guilt is proven, must be brought to account.

The Cycle of Lies By Thierry Meyssan

1 May 2018 — Voltaire Net

When they want to condemn a suspect, the Western powers accuse him of all sorts of crimes until they’re ready to pronounce sentence. Truth and Justice have no say in the matter, the only thing that counts is their power. Let’s take another look at the accusation of the use of chemical weapons in Syria. Thierry Meyssan reminds us that although that particular case is only a few years old, the principle of claiming that Syria is guilty has been established for more than two thousand years.

Part 1

Jonathan Freedland’s ‘committed denialists and conspiracists’, and Paul Mason’s victims of Putin’s ‘global strategy’ clutching at ‘false flag theories’, presumably include Lord West, former First Sea Lord and Chief of Defence Intelligence. In an interview with the BBC, West commented:

Media Lens: Douma: Part 1 – Deception In Plain Sight

25 April 2018 — Media Lens

Part 2

UK corporate media are under a curious kind of military occupation. Almost all print and broadcast media now employ a number of reporters and commentators who are relentless and determined warmongers. Despite the long, unarguable history of US-UK lying on war, and the catastrophic results, these journalists instantly confirm the veracity of atrocity claims made against Official Enemies, while having little or nothing to say about the proven crimes of the US, UK, Israel and their allies. They shriek with a level of moral outrage from which their own government is forever spared. They laud even the most obviously biased, tinpot sources blaming the ‘Enemy’, while dismissing out of hand the best scientific researchers, investigative journalists and academic sceptics who disagree.

The Mainstream Media Fueled Military Action in Syria, Reprisals Against Russia over the Skripal Affair By Philip Giraldi

24 April 2018 — American Herald Tribune

The complicity of America’s Fourth Estate in the evolution of the national security warfare state is often mentioned in passing but rarely analyzed in any detail. But a recent article on Lobe Log by Adam Johnson is refreshing in that it does just that, looking at the editorials in 26 leading newspapers relating to the April 13th strike against Syria for the alleged use of chemical weapons. All of the papers supported the attack in the belief that Syria and its Russian and Iranian allies had done something wrong and had to be punished. Some of the endorsements went well beyond the actual strike itself, urging the White House to do more. The article quotes the Toledo Blade’s assertion that: Continue reading
