Roger Waters, speaking at a concert in Spain, branded the White Helmets–universally portrayed by Western media as glorious heroes–as a bunch of frauds.
“We live in a world where propaganda seems to be more important than what’s really going on.”
“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
MOSCOW, April 14. /TASS/. Russia is convening an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss the actions by the United States and its allies, which carried out missile strikes on Syria on Saturday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.
“On April 14, the US backed by its allies carried out a missile strike against military and civilian infrastructure facilities in Syria. Without the authorization of the United Nations Security Council, in defiance of the UN Charter, norms and principles and international law, an act of aggression has been committed against a sovereign state, which is at the forefront of the war on terror,” the Kremlin press service quotes Putin as saying.
Maria Zakharova, someone who has always struck me as having a rather level head on her shoulders, has made an interesting comment on Facebook:
“Smart missiles should be fired at terrorists and not at the legitimate government which has been fighting terrorists,” she said.
Her Facebook post seems to have been a direct response to a recent tweet by Donald Trump in which he taunts Russia, warning it to “get ready” because US missiles will be coming into Syria–missiles, he says, which are “nice and new and smart.”
In the video below, featuring a news/talk show on Russian TV, one of the guests makes a stunning revelation–that Israel has not expelled any Russian diplomats. The entire program is worth viewing, but I call your attention especially to the comments on Israel, which begin at about 7:51:
While the US, Britain, and other European countries all expelled Russian diplomatic personnel over the Skripal poisoning affair–in the case of the US, 60 officials from the Russian embassy in Washington were declared persona non grata and ordered to leave–not a single Russian diplomat has been expelled from Israel, according to the guest on the show.
“US officials dismissed President Vladimir Putin’s boast of resurgent Russian military might as ‘cheesy’ and made clear that US defense and military capabilities remain ‘second to none.'”
So reported CNN yesterday in its assessment of Putin’s state of the nation speech.
Apparently a new war may be about to break out between Ukraine and the breakaway republics of the Donbass.
We might also be looking at a “calm before the storm” in Syria now as well. Another false flag chemical attack is once again being blamed on the Syrian government (don’t they ever get tired of this script?), and Rex Tillerson is now accusing Russia of bearing “ultimate responsibility” for it.
The United States is ready to use its nuclear weapons against North Korea if the country continues to threaten Washington or its allies, the White House has warned, amid escalating tensions between the two countries.
