Google Translator: L’accorato appello dell’arcivescovo cattolico greco-melkita di Aleppo

Aleppo, September 28, 2016

“We live tragic moments in our history and what happens continues to suffer Aleppo and Aleppini that for more than five years have been unable to have peace, so were harassed and massacred by armed groups coming from all over the world, to conduct self-styled holy war, in a country governed (according to them) by atheists and infidels! for five years now the terrorists call the shots, where the civil authorities of the country do not come to be present. Have sown terror everywhere, killed tens of thousands of innocent people, destroyed thousands of factories, businesses and institutions of public services, looted houses and stole without any concern assets of the country and citizens. They did a lot of innocent victims , kidnapped and brutally murdered countless peaceful people, including nuns, priests and even bishops.”

-Jean-Clément JEANBART, Archbishop of Aleppo

Materials Implicating Syrian Government in Chemical Attack Prepared Before Incident – Russia

Moscow continues to monitor closely the event surrounding the“alleged” chemical attack near Damascus, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Aleksandr Lukashevich, said in a statement.

“We’re getting more new evidence that this criminal act was of a provocative nature,” he stressed. “In particular, there are reports circulating on the Internet, in particular that the materials of the incident and accusations against government troops had been posted for several hours before the so-called attack. Thus, it was a pre-planned action.”

The Damascus chemical attack accusations indicate the launch of “another anti-Syrian propaganda wave” and, in this context, the calls on the UN Security Council to immediately use force in Syria “heard from some EU capitals” are “unacceptable”, Lukashevich said.

Washington’s favorite terrorists are likely behind this latest massacre, again.   Previously the UN found that “opposition” insurgents had used gas in Syria, and other members of the Syrian “opposition” were arrested in Turkey in possession of Sarin nerve gas.  This transparent false flag provocation has failed repeatedly, and yet civilians keep dying by the hundreds in this foreign-sponsored pet project of Washington, London, Paris, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, et al.

How they wailed and moaned over the Houla massacre, one year ago in Syria.  “Assad the Butcher” needed to be taken out.  “Diplomats” pulled out of Syria.  Diplomacy with the mad murderer of Damascus was impossible.

How they wept for the 49 murdered children, until the moment it was revealed that the murderers were their own Salafist terrorists.  Then the news disappeared forever.

Syria : One Year After the Houla Massacre. New Report on Official vs. Real Truth
Syria: The First Casualty…

The mass murder crime remains.  The perpetrators are known, and they are being funded and armed by the US and its immoral allies.

And how we trembled at Obama, the great leader’s, “red line” concerning chemical weapons, nerve gas, the terror of “Weapons of Mass Destruction”(TM) in the hands of the evil overlord Bashar Al Assad.

When the gas was released, the line was crossed.  Only swift heroic action by valiant NATO troops and planes could save the poor “freedom fighters” from the clutches of the brute.  It was global news, an hysteria and call for more war.

Then the United Nations determined it was those same Jihadi terrorists again, who had used the nerve gas.  The so-called “freedom fighters” had killed Syrian troops at a security station with the gas.  The lie was exposed once again, and the terrorist’s PR front, all those lying “activists” trained in deceiving western publics were completely discredited again for the thousandth time over the past two years.

And silence.  Silence in the US press.

The Orwellian US “free press” is nothing of the sort.  By self-censoring the truth, on behalf of US imperial interests and war propaganda, they are the enemy of the American People.  Turn off that junk noise.  Get the facts yourself.  Do not believe US media, as they are known liars.

We fight fascism here, and this is the front line.

“Citing a recent Gallup poll, journalist Robert Sheer reports that “a majority of Americans ages 18-29 believe sending U.S. troops to Vietnam was not a mistake… the young now approve of an irrational war in which 3.4 million Indochinese and 58,000 Americans died…” Holding steady across the age divide, “70% of those 50 or older… with contemporary knowledge…” retain their beliefs in the war’s essential wrongness. “

The real Vietnam war: Kill Anything That Moves, a new history by Nick Turse is reviewed over at Counterpunch. Using a large cache of firsthand accounts by US soldiers on the ground there, this is the wake up call generation dumbass needs to read.

That said, Michael Uhl’s review of the book is far from flattering, with a sense of the one-upsmanship and infighting of the left.  Uhl, a veteran of the war criticizes the young Turse for his limited knowledge and knee jerk myopia.  More from Vietnam era veterans found at In the Mind Field.

It’s often a thankless job fighting the neo-nazism of the current empire. These aren’t the articles, posts, videos, books and films that draw the big crowds. A video called “Beer Boobs” would probably reach millions virally on Youtube, but the descent of the nation into barbarism, mass murder and totalitarianism fails to attract much notice. They say you get the government you deserve. What does that say about the US public?

“…an old lifer Sergeant Major spoke, pointed to us and very specifically stated, ‘These whining, complaining Vietnam veterans will die off. I want to assure you, we have written the history of the Vietnam war your grandchildren will read.’”

If you want to hear what a real hero sounds like, listen to helicopter pilot Hugh Thompson’s account of how he stopped the My Lai massacre by turning his helicpter’s guns on the infantrymen massacring women and children.

The Guardian today posted an investigation and a documentary film on the architects of the “Salvador Option” and the death squads of Iraq. Col. James Steele and Gen. David Petraus, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Chency, the names are expected but for Steele. The documentary highlights Steele’s atrocities from Vietnam through Central America on his way to Baghdad.

From El Salvador to Iraq: Washington’s man behind brutal police squads


Numerous witnesses are on the record. I have one complaint, however, and that is a bogus civilian casualty count mentioned near the beginning of the film. A total of 130,000 Iraqis is stated as some kind of fact with no discussion or examination. This is likely the US military’s own body count; ironically from an invading force that bragged “we don’t do body counts” (Gen. Tommy Franks).

Decent article on the idea of violent media affecting society:

Who’s to blame for gun violence? Movie critics!

A longer article has now been published on Counterpunch:

Was the Shooter on Antidepressant Drugs?

 

map_school_shooting_large

Anti-depressants are linked to suicide, mania, violent outbursts and a host of other very serious problems.  Yet they are routinely prescribed by the millions, with FDA evidence that expected percentages of patients will experience these outbursts.

We need to ask: What is the relationship of psychiatric drugs to these spree massacres?

Was this latest shooter taking anti-depressant drugs?  Are psychiatrists sticking their heads in the sand?  I have personally asked several psychiatrists about links between spree massacre shooters and anti-depressant drugs (Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, etc.), and none of them will accept the idea that this link exists, and that what they are prescribing may cause great harm.

These important videos provide evidence in this argument:
