Basic Syria Information

Below are some links that lead to some articles with basic Syria facts.   Some of these writers, even after undermining much of the US propaganda on Syria, repeat harsh and biased western judgements as if it is just too dangerous to step entirely outside the Political ‘consensus’.  But, I trust my readers to separate factual presentations from the kind of reflexive judgements that keep one within the bounds of ‘mainstream analysis’ and are the foundation of the US drive for the destruction of the Syrian Republic.  Others stand proudly outside the Washington consensus.

Off the Radar

There are a few events in US foreign policy that have not been covered in US Mainstream Media or have not been highlighted in their true context.   So, I’ll briefly list them below.

US Weapons going into Syria.

Dilyana Gaydhzandiev first wrote about the Silk Ways transport of weapons out of Bulgaria to the Middle East and North Africa with US military contractors involved.  The flights are under diplomatic immunity so their cargo is not inspected, and they generally make unscheduled stops to unload in secret.  . . .

Drone Strikes Have Doubled since Trump Presidency

Drone strikes have doubled since Trump came to power.  His recent  threat to refurbish the Afghan War and expand it into Pakistan is related to this increase in Drone strikes, most of which are in that region.   The news of civilian Drone strike victims is itself a victim of the new bipartisan, across the board censorship of media. . .

The Current Heroin Crisis Originates in the Afghan War

There is a huge heroin crisis in the US and globally as well.   Young people are more likely to die of a heroin overdose than of a disease.   When the US went to war with Afghanistan their opium imports were negligible.  . . .

In South America, US Proxies are Rolling Back the Gains of Popular Socialist Governments

In Brazil, President Dilma Rousseff was impeached and dismissed by a cabal of corrupt opposition politicians on the basis that she allowed some corruption to occur during her Presidency.   Lula, the most popular President Brazil has ever had, decided to run in the next election.   He has now been convicted corruption in a kangaroo court and sentenced to 16 years in prison.

Syrian Victory, the Last Gate

According to an interview by Kevork Almassian of Syriana Analysis with Lebaese reporter Marwa Osman, the SAA and their allies have now restored sovereignty to 85% of Syria,   This is a hard won victory, and worth celebrating.    The liberation of the great cities of Syria along with much of the countryside is a testament to the patriotism and loyalty of the  Syrian people and to the stability and persistence of their government, a government that embraced change and development under the most dire circumstances, inviting the disenfranchised to speak. reflecting their concerns in a new constitution and making reconciliation an operational resource to restore unity to the country in the midst of a horrific war.

Since the liberation of East Aleppo, the Syrian government allied forces have stabilized one area after another in the heavily populated western region of the country, and finally, after the liberation of East Aleppo, crossed the desert to the eastern cities long occupied by ISIS.   But their victory has brought the real enemy to the foreground.

SubRosa Weapons for Terrorists

by Dilyana Gaytandzhieva, who lost her job when Al Jazeera picked up her article and referenced the information she had researched.  I’m archiving the article here as a PDF so that it won’t be disappeared along with it’s author, from the public domain.   The scheme Dilyana discovered  has some of the flavor of the post-9/11 rendition program.     Illegal flights are diverted from their normal course and used to deliver politically sensitive cargo to war zones.   Eastern Europe is a pivotal region for these kinds of activities along with US allies in West Asia between the southern part of Russia and Iran.    Click more to view the PDF –

C-Span Press Conference – No War on Syria

I just watched this press conference on “The US Military Role in Syria” with Norman Solomon, David Swanson, John Kiriakou, Mathew Hoh and Christy Edwards, a legal authority on International Law as it pertains to war. The Press Conference, hosted by Normon Solomon on behalf of RootsAction.org, grows out of a campaign called “No US Warplanes Over Syria“, co-sponsored by RootsAction.org, Veterans for Peace, The Nation Magazine, The Daily Kos, World Beyond War and Watchdog.net. They speakers have different slants on the issue but all agree that the US needs to get out of Syria AND the Middle East, and stop threatening North Korea.

Google Limits Public Discourse

People do need to understand how challenging the current environment is for everyone. I was talking yesterday to a friend about how the background information is becoming more and more difficult to access. Even alternative news sites have a cycle of sorts related to what information they focus on. Drone information in particular has been under attack for some time.

As the peak for drone news collapsed, a site that regularly published my work rejected a major research piece on military drones and the ways in which drone news was distorted and covered up in mainstream sources.   The main editor wrote me thank you for the piece, but the person actually posting articles chose to ignore it.   Drones didn’t interest him or her.

Currently I rarely, if ever, see an article focused on a drone strike in Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Somalia or any of the other countries where drone strikes have significantly increased since the beginning of this year.     Today my aggregator turned up several articles claiming that Chinese, Iranian and Russian drones are getting in the way of US business as usual.    But,  my feed no longer reports any US drone strikes despite the fact that  they have significantly increased since Trump came into office. If you look at it, you would think that military drones, targeted killing and spying are on an asymptotic approach to zero. You would never dream that military drone strikes have doubled under President Trump.

Pious Hobby Lobby’s Shady Hobby

It appears that Hobby Lobby, the pious purveyor of fundamentalist Christianity and would be denier of basic reproductive healthcare services to women,  is also a supporter of cynical Muslims and Zionists in the business of plundering the Middle East.   How rich is that?   Actually, it’s very rich.    Steve Green, President of Hobby Lobby, is a collector of early bibles and ancient artifacts.   If you have a fortune, why not spend it on something that enriches society?   $6.4 Billion ought to be enough to make some real headway.   In that light, the Green family who own Hobby Lobby are building a Museum of the Bible in Washington DC.   They have been gathering artifacts for it since 2009, and are very proud of their work.

However, their philanthropy looks a little different in light of their recent payment of $3 Million to resolve a civil case brought by the Department of Justice for their recent purchases of artifacts looted from Iraq through a dealer in the United Arab Emirates.

On Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump

Donald Trump’s early fascination with Russia and the Russian President Vladimir Putin led to some absurd comparisons that claimed to show that somehow the two men are ‘alike’.      Whether you like either of these men or no, it is clear that they are very different individuals with different personalities, styles and capacities.   I responded to of these supposed comparisons that came to my attention recently as follows:

Nation Wreckers, Inc

Brett H. McGurk is an American lawyer and diplomat who was appointed by President Barack Obama on 23 October 2015 as Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL.

Here’s an excerpt of McGurk’s statement at a recent press conference,

Unanimously, nobody wants the Syrian regime to come back.  Regime symbols, regime military forces.  In terms of administrative services, teachers, hospitals, who pays those salaries, that is something where the Syrians are going to have to work that out.  We are not in the business of, as I said, nation building operations.             ~ RT, May 21: 10:14

Aleppo & Homs, A Tale of 2 Cities

Aleppo and Homs, he largest and third largest cities in Syria have been severely impacted over the last 6 years by the ongoing war. The destruction is horrific.   Finally, however, there is peace in which to think about rebuilding.   The opportunity exists to look around and evaluate the damage, and to begin to  think about rebuilding.    Below I have posted 2 very different short videos where the people who live in these cities explain what happened to them, and what activity is currently going on there.   Has restoration begun?  What will it entail?  When, if ever, do people plan on returning to these devastated areas?
