Hi Bec. Your work? Come to cheer on the evil empire as usual?

The latest from your Commander in Chief:

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart'. You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!"

 Just imagine the  president of the most pre-eminent bloody butcher shop in the history of the world presuming to lecturing anyone on killing. LOL! Good thing the joke's on America. It and its evil empire are rapidly heading for the dung-heap of history. This isn't Iraq or Libya this time sport...

Media's Beloved 'Expert' Eliot Higgins: Wrong Again And Again And Again

"Eliot Higgins aka Brown Moses, the founder of Bellingcat 'by and for citizen investigative journalists', is beloved by NATO media.

Canada Rallies Behind US in its Incendiary Anti-Russia Offensive

"Just hours after unverified reports of a poison gas attack in Syria emerged Sunday, Canada's Liberal government issued a statement provocatively blaming the Assad regime and is ally Russia for 'war crimes'. In Ottawa's statement on the gas attacks, which has all the hallmarks of a CIA-orchestrated operation, Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland denounced the Assad regime as 'morally reprehensible.' Canadian forces are also playing a major role in the conflict in Syria and Iraq. The Canadian government, which is committed to hiking military spending by over 70% in the coming decade, is now ready to participate in a far larger war..."

The Four Horseman Gallop By   -   by Craig Murray

"The notion that Britain will take part in military action against Syria with neither investigation of the evidence nor a parliamentary vote is worrying indeed. Without Security Council authorisation, any such action is illegal in any event.

Not only was this staged but it gives John Bolton (not that he really needs it) the green light to go bomb the shit out of Syria which would be a prelude to his ultimate masturbatory fantasy --- bombing Iran.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was America staging these bogus 'gas attacks'

This puts me in the strange position of defending Russia. They are proving to be the real voice of reason.

Isn't their tagline "Where barflies get together"?  They're going to tell us all the real truth because why, again?

Both the name and the tagline of that site come from a song by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, made famous by the Doors("...oh, show me the way, to the next whiskey bar" etc). Apparently, the site is an offshoot of a blog from the early days of Daily Kos...

So, I don't think the tagline is meant to imply anything about an interest in alcohol consumption among the participants, just that they're the old denizens of the Whiskey Bar site.

But yeah, I'm not exactly sure what supposedly qualifies them as experts on who did or not launch an attack in Syria. Then again, I don't really follow those military debates much at all.

That was pretty much my thinking too.  They can like whiskey all they want, but somehow they don't seem any different from any other blog where someone shares their priceless wisdoms with us all, and it's unclear why we should give any more attention to their opinion than to some other blog whose motto is "If you're not wasted, the day is".

The bizarre part is them ripping on a "citizen journalist".  Unlike them, the establishment.  LOL.

One can certainly wonder though, why this happened just shortly after the US president said the US was going to leave Syria. In terms of motive, it seems unlikely that Assad would go out of his way to antagonize people when it at last looked as though they were on their way out the door.

There is an old saw that the first casualty of war is the truth. Seeing that the Middle East has been in a state of war since the early 2000s, it may be that there has been no truth out of there in a very long time. At least for our consumption.

So we may not even know what the fuck is going on. Sending in military personnel and resources into a situation like that is asking for a beating.

As Russia is in Syria with two military bases, it may be likely that they know more about what is going on than we do.

Although I may as well piss into the wind, I call for an immediate cessation of hostilities, and a de-escalation of the situation.

I also hope that cooler heads in Beijing decide to put their foot down and say "Enough of this nonsense. Fuck with Russia, and you are fucking with us."

War is bad for workers. It kills them and their families. It destroys their homes. It destroys the private markets and social systems in which they work. It conscripts them. It lowers wages, which is against the stated economic goal of China, and anyone else who wants higher wages.

Reckless Strike on Syria A Shameless Act

The military actions of the US and its allies have breached the framework of the United Nations and violated the foundation of modern international relations. If the will of Washington and the West represents the will of mankind and they can punish whoever they want, why do you need the UN or international law?

Without UN authorization, the US, UK and France behaved like rogues. No matter how touching the excuses they find for themselves, they cannot change the fact that they are lynching Syria without due evidence."

Couldn't help but notice Yves Engler's suggestion that trudeau's Fovernment should be...whatever?

Should be? Where are the Anti war groups in Canada?
Trudeau musat be challenged legally in Canada for complicity in crimes against humanity in violation of a sovereign country based on allegations without basis of fact!

Early on April 14, the US, the UK and France delivered a massive missile strike on Syria. The attack was publicly justified with accusations that the Syrian government had allegedly been behind the so-called Douma chemical attack on April 7. US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis described the strikes as “harder” than the 2017 strikes on Shayrat military airfield.

The Pentagon said that the US and its allies had launched 105 missiles at the alleged “chemical weapons” facilities of the Assad government and all of them had precisely hit their targets.

The attack involved the following means and launchers:

  • The USS Monterey CG61 fired 30 Tomahawk cruise missiles from the Red Sea.
  • The USS Laboon DDG58 fired 7 Tomahawk cruise missiles from the Red Sea.
  • The USS Higgins DDG76 fired 23 Tomahawk cruise missiles from the Persian Gulf.
  • The USS John Warner SSN785 fired 6 Tomahawk cruise missiles from the Mediterranean.
  • The French frigate LANGUEDOC fired 3 Storm Shadow/SCALP EG cruise missiles from the Mediterranean.
  • B-1B strategic bombers fired 19 AGM-158 JASSM air-launched cruise missiles.
  • British Typhoon and Tornado fighter jets fired 8 Storm Shadow/SCALP EG air-launched cruise missiles.
  • French Rafel and Mirage fired 9 Storm Shadow/SCALP EG air-launched cruise missiles.

According to the Pentagon 76 missiles hit “Barzah Research and Development Center”, 22 missiles hit “Him Shinshar Chemical Weapons Storage Site”, 7 missiles hit “Him Shinshar CW Bunker”.

However, during the official briefing the Pentagon declined to provide any evidence confirming the allegations against the Assad government and offered no explanation as to why there was no dispersal of chemical agent clouds if the chemical weapons facilities had been hit.

Another issue raised by experts is why 76 missiles were needed to destroy three buildings in Barzeh.

There is another side to the story. According to the Syrian Defense Ministry, most of the missiles launched by the US-led bloc were intercepted. The Russian Defense Ministry provided more details by saying that Russia had not employed its air defense assets, but 71 missiles heading to 8 locations had been intercepted by the Syrian Air Defense Forces (SADF).

The Russians added that Moscow will also consider deliveries of S-300 air defense systems to Syria and other countries in response to the US actions.

However, the numbers provided by Russia raise serious questions. Some experts contacted by SouthFront said that even theoretically the SADF could not have been capable of shooting down more than 15-20% of the launched missiles. The SADF just does not have the means and measures necessary to intercept such a number of missiles simultaneously in one wave of strikes.

The experts suggested that the Russian military had possibly used its state-of-the-art electronic warfare systems to counter the launched missiles during the final phase of their flight path.

Another factor, which “highly likely” contributed to the effectiveness of the Syrian counter-measures, is that Russia had provided the Syrian military with operational data from its technical reconnaissance net, including satellites and other surveillance means. Likely, Iran had done a similar thing.

Using tracking data, Russian-made air defense systems like S-125, S-200, Buk and Kvadrat are capable of shooting down cruise missiles with a relatively high efficiency.

The 71 intercepted missiles of 103 launched are a decisive failure for the US and its allies. Some experts suggested that the 76 missiles strike on Barzeh announced by the Pentagon could be an attempt to explain where all the missiles had gone.

If the data provided by the Russian Defense Ministry is confirmed, this will be the first time in the history when that a side was able to repel a massive strike of so-called modern high-precision weapons/missiles. If so, in the case of a nuclear exchange between the US and Russia, the Russians will be able to intercept most of the US means of attack while suffering only minor damage, whereas Russia’s nuclear strike would be a crushing blow.

Fisk: The Search For Truth in the Rubble of Douma - And One Doctor's Doubts Over the Chemical Attack

Robert Fisk visits the Syria clinic at the centre of a global crisis...

'The patients, he says, were overcome not by gas but by oxygen starvation in the rubbish-filled tunnels and basements in which they lived, on a night of heavy wind and heavy shelling that stirred up a dust storm. I was with my family in the basement of my house 300 meters from here on the night but all the doctors know what happened.

There was a lot of shelling and aircraft were always over Douma at night - but on this night, there was wind and huge dust clouds began to come into the basements and cellars where people lived.  People began to arrive here suffering from hypoxia, oxygen loss. 

Then someone at the door, a 'White Helmet' shouted 'Gas!' and a panic began. People started throwing water over each other. Yes, the video was filmed here, it is genuine, but what you see are people suffering from hypoxia - not gas poisoning..."

The academic determined that the joint British, US and French action against the Syrian government was 'not in accordance with the UN Charter and International law.'

'It is quite clear that the position advocated by the government is not an accurate reflection of international law as it currently stands,' he said.

Who actually pulled the trigger on this attack is anyones guess but I would bet that the Syrian president is the very last one who would have.  He had everything to lose and nothing to gain. Even if the Syrian government used chemical weapons in the past (which they probably did) at this stage to use it, considering the US immedately launched a cruise missile strike last time, is stupid. The US and allies reaction was guarenteed. Why beg for world condemination and cruise missile attacks when you're winning the war and all to kill 20 or 30 civilians?

Good points but I think the whole “Assad had too much to lose because he’s now winning” argument is a bit over rated.

Consider this: Perhaps it was as simple as good old fashion cruelty and was meant to punish the local population for their support of the rebellion against Assad (they did hold out the longest) and to show them he can do as he pleases with them. Sure the USA might strike but Russia has Assad’s back and if the past strikes are any indication Syria has little to fear or lose.

Who actually pulled the trigger on this attack is anyones guess but I would bet that the Syrian president is the very last one who would have.  He had everything to lose and nothing to gain. Even if the Syrian government used chemical weapons in the past (which they probably did) at this stage to use it, considering the US immedately launched a cruise missile strike last time, is stupid. The US and allies reaction was guarenteed. Why beg for world condemination and cruise missile attacks when you're winning the war and all to kill 20 or 30 civilians?

Good points but I think the whole “Assad had too much to lose because he’s now winning” argument is a bit over rated.

Consider this: Perhaps it was as simple as good old fashion cruelty and was meant to punish the local population for their support of the rebellion against Assad (they did hold out the longest) and to show them he can do as he pleases with them. Sure the USA might strike but Russia has Assad’s back and if the past strikes are any indication Syria has little to fear or lose.

You may very well be right. He could be cruel and just want to punish the locals and isn't worried about world condemnation or practically begging NATO countries to strike him.  I remember about 10 years ago he was being lauded for his tollerence and peaceful forward thinking ways.

Waters cautioned his audience, 'If we were to listen to the propaganda of the White Helmets and others, we would encourage our governments to start dropping bombs on people in Syria. This would be a mistake of monumental proportions for us as human beings..."

Who is Stalling the OPCW Investigation in Douma?

https://t.co/KtyoFGIYUF

"The OPCW inspectors are held up by the UN Department of Safety and Security (UNDSS) which has a say about movement of UN aligned organizations in areas that might be dangerous. The UNDSS is led by an Australian police/intelligence officer. The hold-up seems to be intended.

The suburb where the alleged incident happened is only a few miles away from the center of Damascus. Journalists and camera teams walk all over the place without any protection and freely interview hospital personnel. The OPCW has yet to reach the area. It claims that the security is insufficient..."

if in fact White Helmuts is a propaganda arm of the jihadists, if this can be proved, does this not make our Government complicit in Terrorism and chargeable under our own Anti terrorism Act...This should be on the agenda of the anti war movement of Canada
