Truth, Buried In A Sea Of Speculation And Bias.

        I'm no apologist for Assad, nor an applauder for Putin and his military machine, but when it comes to situations like Syria, it is right that we try to find the truth. Syria is a country where millions of its citizens have been displaced, tens of thousands have been killed and maimed, most of its major cities have been turned to rubble, there are thousands of children being born homeless, or being born as refugees, but our babbling brook of bullshit, the mainstream media, spews out second hand, unverified western propaganda, while the truth lies buried in a sea of speculation and bias. There are other voices in this imperialist blood bath that is Syria, we have a duty to hear them. 
These Videos from Arrezafe:

      The Western military went into Afghanistan in 2001, since then a trail of death and destruction has moved across a vast swath of that part of the world, here we are in 2017, we are still in there with our military might, and the death and destruction continues at an accelerated rate. Let's not forget, that the vast majority of those displaced, deaths and injuries are of ordinary people from that region. We are talking about bus drivers, plumbers, teachers, shop assistants, doctors, elderly and children. Everybody must ask, why are they paying this price?

  1. Most of the euphemistically called Western "media" are in the hands of the big arms corporations. What truth can we get from them, then? As you say, the point is not to defend Assad or Putin, but to defend the truth. And the truth is that in Syria there is no "Civil War", as the media say, there is a planned war to destroy Syria for the benefit of large corporations. A crime plotted in luxurious offices where men, women and children of the planet are mere numbers in a sinister business balance.

  2. "In London, one of the world's biggest arms fairs was staged by the British government. The buzz in the stands was the "demonstration effect in Libya". The London Chamber of Commerce and Industry held a preview entitled "Middle East: A vast market for UK defence and security companies". The host was the Royal Bank of Scotland, a major investor in cluster bombs, which were used extensively against civilian targets in Libya. The blurb for the bank's arms party lauded the "unprecedented opportunities for UK defence and security companies."

    Last month, Prime Minister Theresa May was in Saudi Arabia, selling more of the £3 billion worth of British arms which the Saudis have used against Yemen. Based in control rooms in Riyadh, British military advisers assist the Saudi bombing raids, which have killed more than 10,000 civilians. There are now clear signs of famine. A Yemeni child dies every 10 minutes from preventable disease, says Unicef."
