Syria: the Art of Standing on the Right Side of History

27 June 2013 — Oriental Review

Syria: the Art of Standing on the Right Side of HistoryThe ongoing Syrian crisis will be certainly viewed by future generations as a classic example of how a completely false reality, as presented by the dominant Western political class and corporate media, has inscrutably resulted in the moral and political reinforcement of the opposing party, which was desperately defending the principles of law and justice under unprecedented pressure from a transnational party of war.

Pre-emptive Policing By Craig Murray

12 June 2013 — Craig Murray

“Boots on the Ground”: Sarkozy and Cameron Prepare to Land in Libya: Powerful Naval Strike Group enters Mediterranean By Manlio Dinucci
