If Civilian Deaths Are 'Facts of Life' For US, Why Aren't They For Russia and Syria?

In an interview with CBS’ Face The Nation, Secretary of Defense James Mattis was briefly asked about the view of the military when it comes to civilian casualties as it stands with America’s alleged new strategy of “annihilation” of ISIS. Mattis briefly responded with feigned sorrow at the loss of innocent life that “Civilian casualties are a fact of life in this sort of situation. We do everything humanly possible consistent with military necessity, taking many chances to avoid civilian casualties at all costs. The American people and the American military will never get used to civilian casualties. And we will – we will fight against that every way we can possibly bring our intelligence and our tactics to bear.”

As Americans, we have been hearing rhetoric like this for many years. In fact, our society has become so habituated to our own aggression and violence as well as being so culturally degraded that statements of “acceptable casualties” and “collateral damage” actually rings as something representative of a strong leader and a dominant military in the ears of many. Such is an unfortunate reality.

However, since both the Secretary of Defense and the American public have accepted the concept that civilians will be killed in military conflict and that the deaths of innocent people are “facts of life,” then why, we must ask, is it a war crime if Syrian or Russian airstrikes accidentally kill civilians?

After all, throughout the entirety of the Syrian conflict, the Syrian military has been publicly crucified for any civilian deaths that may have come about as a result of airstrikes targeting Western-backed terrorists. Likewise, after the Russians joined the fray, the Western corporate press simply couldn’t get enough of blaming Russia for civilian casualties as if Russia was intentionally targeting innocent people.

Mad Dog Mattis Says US Now Focused On 'Annihilation' Of ISIS; Civilian Casualties 'Fact of Life'

In a signal that the United States is about to ramp up the aggression in its war on Syria, Secretary of Defense, Jim “Mad Dog” Mattis has announced that the U.S. strategy to “defeat ISIS” is changing, stating that a new policy of “attrition” is over and the new policy of “annihilation” is about to begin.

Speaking to CBS’ Face The Nation, Mattis said,

Our strategy right now is to accelerate the campaign against Isis. It is a threat to all civilized nations. And the bottom line is we are going to move in an accelerated and reinforced manner, throw them on their back foot. 
We have already shifted from attrition tactics, where we shove them from one position to another in Iraq and Syria, to annihilation tactics where we surround them. Our intention is that the foreign fighters do not survive the fight to return home to North Africa, to Europe, to America, to Asia, to Africa. We’re not going to allow them to do so. We’re going to stop them there and take apart the caliphate.

The United States, however, has long supported the terrorist group both in terms of funding and outright military assistance ever since the organization became publicly known as ISIS ( simply name change from al-Qaeda, an American created and controlled terrorist organization).

Mattis then launched into a familiar but incredibly hypocritical retort regarding the horror of killing women and children, something the United States has become quite adept at doing, particularly in the last two decades. He said,

US Drops Leaflets In Tanf To Warn Syrian Military Not To Advance, Orders Retreat

In a blatant but not altogether surprising display of arrogance and aggression, the United States recently dropped leaflets on the al-Tanf road, warning the Syrian military to halt its advance toward Tanf and demanding a retreat.

According to reports both by Leith Abou Fadel of Al-Masdar and from SouthFront, the leaflets were dropped after the Syrian military had advanced to the Shehmi area, which is located about 55km from the city of Tanf. The leaflets not only warned the SAA to stop advancing but demanded that it withdraw to the Zaza triangle.

The images can be seen at the SouthFront website in the article “US-Led Coalition Drops Leaflets Warning Syria Not To Approach Al-Tanf Town.

According to local sources cited by SouthFront, the leaflets contained sectarian expressions.

Syrian TV reported that the SAA has managed to advance in and around the Scientific Research area of the eastern desert of the Suweida countryside. The Syrian military was also able to repel an attack launched by the Western-backed terrorist group known as the Free Syrian Army in the same area.

In addition, SouthFront has reported that the “US-led forces” used Switchblade suicide drones in order to target the SAA positions with Grad missiles south of Zaza.

The move toward Tanf is significant because it puts Syrian military forces moving toward U.S. and U.K. Special Operations Forces stationed at the same location.

The base, located at al-Tanf, has been operational for around a year.

‘US-Riyadh arms deal will ensure Saudis will continue slaughtering Yemenis’

‘US-Riyadh arms deal will ensure Saudis will continue slaughtering Yemenis’Brandon Turbeville
May 27, 2017

In an interview with Muslim Press, Brandon Turbeville said that U.S. President Donald Trump’s recent arms deal with Saudi Arabia will ensure that “the Saudis will continue to engage in wholesale slaughter in Yemen and perhaps even engage in military operations in other places.”
Here’s the full transcript of the interview:

Muslim Press: What’s the significance of Trump’s Middle East tour? What was he looking for during his trip?

Brandon Turbeville: Trump’s Middle East tour was bound to happen sooner or later. All American Presidents have to go and grovel to Israel and Saudi Arabia at some point during their career. Obviously, the Israeli element was simply more American groveling, ensuring that the Israelis and the Zionist lobby are comfortable with a Trump administration. But the question is also “why now?” It’s been known for decades that, when a President is having trouble at home, a foreign trip tends to ease some of the pressure as Americans will be focused on the outcome of the trip. That seems to have helped a little but probably not as much as Trump had hoped. The Deep State and the leftists are still screaming about “Russian ties” and whatever else they can come up with here at home. Ultimately, Trump has reassured Saudi Arabia that all his rhetoric on the campaign trail was just that – rhetoric. The U.S. and KSA can now resume business as usual.

MP: What could you say about his anti-Iran rhetoric? How likely is a conflict with Iran?

Brandon Turbeville: His anti-Iran rhetoric was even present on the campaign trail. It was one of the few things he was actually consistent about. Now that he’s president, the rhetoric is taking on an even more dangerous configuration because now he (or more truthfully the Deep State apparatus) has the ability to act on that rhetoric. I think a conflict with Iran is very likely in the future. Iran was always next on the chopping block after Syria and, even though Syria has not fallen like it was intended, the state has been significantly weakened by six years of war. It seems like the West is working toward partition and, once that has been accomplished, Iran will start to see the sights of the West set upon it. I would also suggest that, this time, I don’t think Iran will be looking at color revolutions and proxy terrorists but at direct Western and Israeli military assaults. I would suggest taking a look at the Brookings Institution document entitled “Which Path To Persia,” which highlights some of the options the United States is looking at in terms of how a war with Iran could be initiated. Some involved color revolutions. Some involve proxy terrorists like in Syria and Libya. Some involve direct invasion. Others involve the use of Israeli strikes and provocations that force Iran to respond, and thus the United States can intervene as if it is protecting its Israeli ally. Christian Zionism is incredibly popular here in the U.S. and that rationale is likely to sell easily to a large part of the population. I highly recommend reading that Brookings document. It can easily be found on the internet.

Syria's Military Just Made Massive Gains In The East: Heading Toward ISIS, US Forces - Clash Inevitable?

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
May 29, 2017

The Syrian military has just made massive gains in the eastern desert areas of the country, foreshadowing a major assault on ISIS positions in the east and southeast and thus an attempt to lift the ISIS siege on Deir ez-Zour. To put it plainly for those that do not follow the Syrian crisis closely, this is a huge deal.

As Ziad Fadel of Syrian Perspective reported,

Complete collapse of of terrorists south of Homs-Palmyra highway. Both ISIS and US/UK/Jordan/GCC/Israel trained terrorists were utterly defeated and expelled from the vital Syrian desert triangle area. The SAA and allies are now securing all key points while clearing them from mines and IEDs. So far the area liberated in the past 3 days accounts to almost 5,000 sq kms, a large and vital area, a fundamental step to free all the Syrian desert from terrorism. Villages, hills and sites that were confirmed liberated so far are listed below: 
 Al Rus hills 
 Khanazir 
 Mount Sawwanat al-Muhassah 
 Mount Qannas 
 Jabal al-Abdah

Aleppo Reporter Exposes White Helmets, West For Working With al-Qaeda; Debunks "Assad's Brutality"

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
May 24, 2017

As more and more evidence reveals the terroristic nature of the White Helmets and the fact that the groups is nothing more than a wing of al-Qaeda/Nusra, the facts surrounding the terrorist support group seem to be snowballing. After in depth research by Vanessa Beeley of 21st Century Wire and The Wall Will Fall seriously damaged the credibility of White Helmets-based propaganda, Beeley herself was able to travel to Syria and document evidence that the White Helmets were indeed working with al-Nusra and al-Qaeda.

Now, independent journalist Khaled Iskef, who is based in Aleppo, has followed up on Beeley’s work by releasing a series of reports of his own detailing the information he obtained as a result of analyzing the contents of files, documents, and papers left over in the East Aleppo White Helmets headquarters which, notably, was located directly next to the Nusra headquarters.

In the series of reports included below, Iskef reveals through the documents he obtained (footage is constantly rolling in the background showing the documents, graffiti, and buildings he is discussing) that the White Helmets were specifically trained by Qatar in Turkey. Like Vanessa Beeley’s report, Iskef also shows on camera the fact that the White Helmets headquarters contained not only their own logo but also the logo of ISIS.

Iskef’s report contains a brief discussion of the M10 hospital which can be seen in the video and which was only used to treat terrorists and jihadist fighters at the expense of civilians.

Iskef also claims that a French doctor named Raphael Betty assisted in treating the terrorists as did the director of COMSYR. In addition, Iskef claims that he has evidence which shows a “deal” between the “Free Aleppo Governorate Council, Osama Talgo, Rafael Betty and Ala, one of the members of the COMSYR society.”

America Arms The Kurds and Terrorists, Turks Bomb Kurds and Assist Terrorists: What Side Is Everyone On?

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
May 24, 2017

Recently, the Trump administration approved the arming of Kurdish militias in Syria with heavy weapons. Early on, Trump had allowed for the shipment of various armored vehicles and light weaponry to be shipped to Kurdish fighters but the new announcement will see restrictions removed and allow for even more plentiful and powerful weaponry being sent to Kurds in Syria who are battling terrorists, Turkey, the Syrian military, and non-Kurd militias.

Turkey is obviously outraged at the new announcement. These Kurdish fighters are bound to use those arms against Turkey at some point if for no other reason that the fact that Turkey has invaded Syrian territory and launched a war not on ISIS but the YPG. At the same time, however, the United States and Turkey are allies with Turkey doing the bidding of the U.S. for the past six years of the conflict in Syria.

With only three nations being discussed, we already reach the beginning of the tangled web of alliances, interests, and goals that become ever complicated the deeper one attempts to look to understand them. Syria, United States, Kurds, Turkey, terrorists, Russia, Iran, Hezbollah, Israel, Saudi Arabia are all players that have strategic interests related to this specific issue and whose relationship will be changed and morphed into something new as a result of the recently announced U.S. policy toward Kurdish fighters.

The Race For Raqqa

One of the reasons for the recent increase in U.S. support to Kurdish fighters is the race to Raqqa, an attempt on the part of the United States and NATO to seize Raqqa from ISIS before the Syrian military is able to do so. This is also the reason many ISIS fighters have traveled to Deir ez-Zour in order to stop the SAA advances there, i.e. because Deir ez-Zour is a prerequisite for Syrian military in their upcoming assault on Raqqa. Raqqa, of course, can afford to lose terrorists since the U.S.-backed forces are soon going to attempt to “take it” and rebrand the city and the region as under the control of “moderate” or Kurdish forces. The forces that occupy Raqqa will be no different than ISIS in anything other than their name but it will go great lengths in preventing the Syrian military from retaking the city and province due to the protection placed over Kurdish and “moderate” terrorist forces by the anti-Syria coalition.

Syria's Assad Just Explained How America Really Works

While Americans endlessly battle each other over seemingly important choices like Clinton and Trump or Democrats and Republicans, it is clear that the majority of the population has little understanding of how the U.S. government operates. Yet, for those who pay the price for the apathy and confusion of the general population of the West, it often becomes stunningly obvious that neither Presidents nor political parties in America represent any discernible difference in the ongoing agenda of the Deep State and the rest of the oligarchical apparatus. Indeed, that agenda always marches forward regardless of who is president or which political party is in control.

Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad has thus had the unique position of not only being on the receiving end of American imperialism by virtue of not only being a citizen of a target country but also by being the head of the country, steeped in politics in his own right and thus understanding how certain factors come into play at the national level.

With that in mind, it is worth pointing out a recent statement made by Assad during the course of an interview regarding the opinion of the Syrian government on Donald Trump. Assad stated,

The American President has no policies. There are policies drawn by the American institutions which control the American regime which are the intelligence agencies, the Pentagon, the big arms and oil companies, and financial institutions, in addition to some other lobbies which influence American decision-making. The American President merely implements these policies, and the evidence is that when Trump tried to move on a different track, during and after his election campaign, he couldn’t. He came under a ferocious attack. As we have seen in the past few week, he changed his rhetoric completely and subjected himself to the terms of the deep American state, or the deep American regime. That’s why it is unrealistic and a complete waste of time to make an assessment of the American President’s foreign policy, for he might say something; but he ultimately does what these institutions dictate to him. This is not new. This has been ongoing American policy for decades.

22 Amazing Benefits Of Taurine

Brandon Turbeville and Heather Callaghan
Natural Blaze
May 22, 2017

Amino acids are the components of protein and proteins are the building blocks of life. And if you’ve got all your amino acids – you’ve got protein!

Do you eat fish, other animal products, eggs or sea plants such as algae? If not, then you may not be making enough taurine. That’s right. Your body makes taurine from two other amino acids called methionine and cysteine, provided it has the enzyme for it. Don’t worry – there are more food sources for taurine than sushi! More on food sources (including vegan) below.

Taurine is a non-protein amino acid that is sulfur-bearing and crucial for the metabolism of fats. It is necessary for building skeletal muscles, the central nervous system, retinas, and for cardiovascular function. Actually, it is an acid containing an amino group, rather than an amino acid in the usual meaning of the term.

Taurine is so important that the lack of this amino acid in commercial cat food led to the deaths of many animals before the deficiency was discovered. Many cat food cans now list the percentage of taurine. Even though humans and cats are so biologically different – the human need for taurine cannot be stressed enough.

Below is a list of all the research-backed beneficial effects of taurine.* Try to get taurine from a variety of foods listed below. Talk to your preferred healthcare practitioner before upping your taurine intake with a supplement.

Willie Nelson Challenges Jeff Sessions To Smoke Some Pot

After U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions made his outrageous statement that marijuana is “only slightly less awful” than heroin, Willie Nelson is now responding with some advice for the clueless attorney general.

“I wonder if he’s tried both of them. I don’t think you can really make a statement like that unless you’ve tried them all. So I’d like to suggest to Jeff to try it and then let me know later if he thinks he’s still telling the truth,” Nelson told Rolling Stone.

Now 84, Willie Nelson has long been an advocate for marijuana and marijuana freedom. Today, he even has his own brand of pot, Willie’s Reserve, for sale in places where it is legal.

When Rolling Stone asked Willie if there is a downside to smoking marijuana he responded, “I haven’t run into any yet. I guess if you go somewhere it’s illegal, that’s a pretty good downside.”

You can read the full interview HERE.

Jeff Sessions’ statements were such a frightening reminder of the dark ages in which people actually believed marijuana was addictive and dangerous – so much so, that even some state governments began rushing to pass legislation to prevent a federal government move to ramp up the drug war.

Willie Nelson is 84 and proves that age is not a barrier to new information, while Jeff Sessions, who is much younger than Nelson, proves that age does not prevent one from being a relic.

Video Shows Idlib White Helmets Accepting Award From al-Qaeda

Only days after being labeled the “hidden soldiers of the revolution” by the leader of Tahrir al-Sham (al-Qaeda in Syria), Abu Jaber, the White Helmets have now been exposed as having accepted an award from the terrorist group in Idlib after Hayat Tahrir al-Sham organized a ceremony in their honor.

Indeed, a video has been published that is reportedly a video of the ceremony.

The video, which is in Arabic, is accompanied by English subtitles. The video begins with a voiceover which says, “With the Syrian revolution going into it’s 7th year, Hay’at Tahreer al-Sham (Nusra) finds that it is its duty to honor the hidden soldiers who spent their days and nights serving their people so it organized an honorary ceremony to give some gratitude to those with the White Helmets.”

The video then shows a “dramatization” of the chemical attack and the “heroism” of the White Helmets.

The video claims to show the Idlib director of the White Helmets embracing and kissing Abu Jaber and Abdallah Al-Muhaysni, both terrorist leaders with HTS (al-Qaeda).

“I would like to thank my brothers in Hay’at Tahreer Al-Sham (Nusra) for this honoring ceremony and all those who participated in organizing this event,” says the individual accepting the award.

U.S. Attacks Syrian Military Near Tanf, Jordanian Border

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
May 18, 2017

After reports of Syrian military movement towards Deir ez-Zour and al-Tanf were confirmed, it seemed almost inevitable that there would be a clash between Syrian government forces and those of the U.S. and U.K. as well as the terrorists being housed and trained at the Western base in Tanf.

Finally, on May 18, al-Qaeda’s Air Force struck yet again when the United States launched an aerial assault on an SAA military convoy. According to CBS News,
The U.S. sent aircraft to strike Syrian regime vehicles on Thursday that violated a deconfliction zone set up around al-Tanf, an army base where special forces are training Syrian militias, CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reports.

The Syrian regime has violated the zone two times in the past few days, Martin reports.

In one incident, 27 regime vehicles drove within 18 miles of al-Tanf, which breached the 34 mile radius of the army convoy. U.S. aircraft attempted to buzz the regime, but when the convoy didn't turn around, they conducted a strike against some of the vehicles.

In the second incident, an unarmed Syrian SU-22 fighter-bomber entered the deconfliction zone and was intercepted by a pair of F-22 fighter aircraft.
More specifically, according to al-Masdar News, the positions of the SAA were attacked near the Rasi’i Well, after the SAA had advanced 35km into terrorist-held territory near the border with Jordan.

In Defense of Millennials

Brandon Turbeville

Activist Post
May 17, 2017

Within the last ten years, it has become a trend of the older generations to make fun of millennials for being entitled, lazy, stupid, and generally annoying. Millennials are regarded as the opposite of the “greatest generation.” Where the “greatest generation” worked hard, fought through struggle and obstacles, and respected authority, millennials are regarded as people who feel entitled to certain levels of comfort from the start, avoid hardships and hard work, and have little regard for rules and responsibility. Where the older generation did not complain, millennials complain at the slightest obstacle they find in their path.

Of course, millennials haven’t made their situation better by being the generation of Social Justice Warriors who scream racism, homophobia, sexism, transphobia, or any and all other isms and phobias taught to them by cultural Marxist professors and media outlets at the slightest sign of disagreement or not being worshipped as the special snowflake they see themselves as being.

For the sake of this discussion, however, we will put aside the issue of cultural Marxism, the growing movement to make beautiful things ugly and ugly things beautiful at a cultural level, or the obsession with identity politics. This is by no means the generation with which such aberrations began. In fact, the millennial insistence on out-lefting each other is merely a manifestation of a social agenda that has been on the go for over one hundred years.

Instead, we should address the economic criticism of millennials which tends to revolve around work ethic, education, and overall level of “success.” Of course, “success” as defined by middle America is solely financial. Despite the generally more honorable values of past generations (community, family, etc.), Americans of all generations tend to measure a human being’s worth by the size of their wallet. In America, the bigger the purse, the bigger the person.

Syrian Forces Heading Toward US/UK Base In Syria - Reports Say SAA 15 Miles Away

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
May 17, 2017

Earlier reports of Syrian forces moving towards Deir ez-Zour and, hence, Western troops has now apparently been confirmed. According to reports from numerous sources, the Syrian soldiers are growing ever closer to a joint US/UK Special Forces Base.

The base, located at al-Tanf, has been operational for around a year. Reports suggest that the Syrian military troops are within 15 miles of the base.

The possibility of a direct Syrian clash with US/UK forces and thus a Russian clash with US/UK forces is now becoming very real as the Syrian government does not seem ready to allow the US and UK to simply invade and occupy any more territory than they already have.

A report posted in The Telegraph was so utterly stupid in its insinuations that it bears little mention since it attempted to portray Assad as somehow supportive of ISIS. However, it is quite possible that the terrorists cited by the news agency are telling the truth out of fear that the Syrian military will be able to retake territory surrounding Deir ez-Zour.

As RT reports,

The area is of substantial strategic importance to the regime, as controlling it would help re-establish a road link with Iraq to the south. 

New Holocaust Claims Against Assad Are Based On Old, Debunked Propaganda

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
May 16, 2017

As the propaganda coming from Washington regresses to an even more infantile level each year, so does the danger of that propaganda being used to justify a greater American military involvement in the Syrian crisis which Washington itself created. Always ready to invoke the memories of Adolf Hitler, Nazis, and the Holocaust at every opportunity, the U.S. State Department is now claiming that not only is Bashar al-Assad controlling massive prisons where mostly innocent civilians are starved and tortured, but that he is operating crematoriums where the bodies of victims are destroyed, thus cheating the moral West out of having any actual evidence of Assad’s “crimes against humanity.”

This new round of propaganda is based upon the debunked Amnesty International report released in February, 2017, entitled “Human Slaughterhouse: Mass Hangings And Extermination At Sednaya Prison, Syria.” The report contained great writing but it was totally devoid of actual evidence. In fact, the only evidence contained in those pages was satellite photos that showed a building that AM claimed was a prison. The photos thus showed the same thing that any American could have provided had they taken a picture of an American public school.

Still, the propaganda report was full of accounts gathered from “survivors” who themselves had been terrorist fighters or affiliated with terrorist groups and from other anti-Syrian pro-terrorist NGOs. This and the satellite photos were all they were able to produce. Now, however, the U.S. has more to add to the story – crematoriums. With Americans so seemingly impervious to subtlety, the Washington Post saw fit to point out the obvious – that the State Department briefing was "accusations of mass murder and incinerated bodies, evoking the Holocaust."

Chem Weapons Expert Says MSM “New Evidence” In Khan Sheykhoun Proves Nothing, Americans Should Question Official Story

The United States government and the Western corporate media are doing everything they can to continue to prop the disproven narrative that Bashar al-Assad launched a chemical attack against civilians in Khan Sheykhoun. After having their story debunked repeatedly, the corporate keeps coming back for more, even despite having a terrorist confessing to participating in the false flag attack.

This time, the corporate media is claiming to have released “new” footage of the Khan Sheykhoun attack which reveals evidence that the Assad government was behind the attack.

The new footage, however, does nothing of the sort. In fact, it is merely the recycling of photos and video that was previously broadcast into every home in America with the exception of one or two new pictures of dying children and civilians.

Washington’s Blog contacted rocket scientist and chemical weapons expert Theodore Postol to ask him his thoughts on the attack. Postol’s response is quite telling. He said,

I agree that the footage is harrowing. However none of it is new and none of it proves that the Syrian government was the perpetrator of a nerve agent attack. 
As such, this article merely falls into the category of propaganda. 
The kindest alternative description of the article is that it might instead be yet another example of bad reporting that mixes ill-considered assumptions with facts that may or may not be relevant to its conclusions.

Terrorist Confesses To Taking Part In Staged Chemical Weapons Attacks In Syria, Western Media Silent

Brandon Turbeville

May 15, 2017

Before the dust settled on Khan Skeykhoun, the United States had used the alleged chemical attack that took place there as the justification for a launch of 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the al-Sha’aryat airbase in Syria. Even as the missiles were heading toward their target, it was clear that something was not right with the official U.S. government story regarding the incident. In fact, when considering all the evidence, it was clear that the Syrian military had nothing to do with the actual attack. Even more so, there were even questions regarding whether or not the attack actually took place.

After the bombings, as more and more evidence came to light, it became so obvious that the Syrian government had nothing to do with the attacks that any further reference to Khan Sheykhoun should now conjure up memories of an American empire looking for any reason to launch attacks against Syria, so much so that it is ready to slaughter children under the guise of seeking revenge for the killing of children.

Now, however, there is little doubt left as to whether or not the Syrian government was involved in the attack since one of the West’s proxy terrorists recently confessed to taking part in the staging of the attack to be blamed on the Syrian government.

According to a report by Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA),

Terrorist, Walid Hendi confessed to taking part in fabricating videos and photos for a Turkish TV channel while working with the so-called “White Helmets” that depict neighborhoods and areas in Aleppo being attacked with chemical weapons in order to blame the Syrian Arab Army.

Report: U.S., British Forces Enter Southern Syria Alongside Terrorists; Is A Bigger Battle Shaping Up?

Days after reports that Damascus was on high alert due to increased U.S. troop levels on the Jordanian border and an apparent preparation for an invasion from the south and southeast, the United States and Britain have indeed pushed into Syria from the very location earlier reports suggested would be used.

Fighting alongside jihadist terrorist organization, Jaysh Mughawr al-Thurah, a subsidiary of the Free Syrian Army, U.S. and British forces were filmed traveling through the Tanf border crossing in Homs governate. The troops were apparently heading towards the Hamimah area.

The reports were released first from the SMART News Agency, which writes that approximately 150 U.S. and British military personnel have entered Syria from Jordan.

SMART News Agency has provided video evidence of their claims. This video reportedly shows several military personnel in armed Humvees engaging in a firefight alongside terrorist forces, who were operating the cameras. Indeed, the familiar “Allahu Akbar” chant can be heard throughout the video.

Hamimah is around 90km east of Palmyra, near the Deir ez-Zour countryside. Albukamal is also located nearby, a town of strategic importance to the U.S.

In The Midst Of Crisis, Syria's Grand Mufti Has This To Say On Religion, Faith, And Humanity

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
May 11, 2017

While the mainstream corporate press continues to paint the Syrian crisis as a civil war between religious denominations (since it works right along with the idiotic narrative painted of the Middle East peddled in the West for decades), Syrians have proven MSM outlets wrong every day for the last six years. That is, if anyone bothers to speak to them about what is happening in their country and their own views on the situation.

Many Americans would particularly be interested to learn how Syria was a multi-ethnic multi-religious state without civil war and religious warfare prior to America’s rebels. Indeed, while America’s religious leaders are consistently focused on promoting a military mindset and war across the world, Syria’s religious leaders are doing the opposite, focusing on inter-faith dialogue, peace, and unity.

In fact, a man who has been leading the efforts for peace in Syria, the Grand Mufti himself, has been repeatedly maligned in the Western press as someone who is complicit in war crimes and even being personally involved in the handpicking torture victims. These narratives have repeatedly fallen apart of course, since they are nothing more than propaganda. The Grand Mufti has often angered western journalists and western politicians by refusing to play along with their idiotic narratives that Assad is murdering his own people and engaging in wanton atrocities and refusing to engage in primitive religious nitpicking and division.

However, despite the negative press Sheikh Ahmad Bahreddin Hassoun has received in the West, he continues to remain stalwart in the face of Western media pressure. He also continues to push for understanding and dialogue between the various faiths as well as the denominations within his own.

Not only are the two sides competing for influence over the domestic affairs and political decisions of the Macedonian government, there is also the question of geopolitical positions and the agenda of the creation of micro-states and mini-states. Most notably, however, is the interest regarding the Balkan Stream pipeline (aka the Turkish Stream Pipeline).

This is why mainstream media headlines have become inflamed with reports of social unrest in Macedonia over the past few weeks.

In order to understand what is actually happening, however, one needs to understand the timeline of events that have taken place in Macedonia since 2015 and continuing on to today as well as the nature of the various players involved in the political and physical street battles.

In May 2015, protests began erupting in Skopje, Macedonia against the Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski and his government. The protests, led by Zoran Zaev, were allegedly in response to the massive spying and surveillance of Macedonian officials and other individuals as well as an alleged cover-up of a killing of a young man by police in 2011. The protests were largely focused on the issue of government corruption, with tens of thousands of people in the streets of Skopje, demanding the Prime Minister’s resignation as well as that of other members of his government.

U.S., Jordanian Forces Build Up On Syria, Jordan Border; Possible Invasion On The Horizon

Weeks after a cross-border invasion of Syria by U.S. forces under the guise of rescuing moderate terrorists from the grips of extremist terrorists in southern Syria, there are signs that a much bigger invasion is set to take place in the near future.

Damascus is now on high alert after footage gathered from a drone revealed the presence of around 400 U.S. and Jordanian military vehicles at a Jordanian military base located near the Syrian desert. The base is located east of az-Zarqa, which is 43 km away from the Syrian border. Tanks were also spotted and were reported to be M60s.

You may view some of the pictures taken by the drone at al-Masdar News by following this link.

It is suspected that the foreign military convoys may launch an incursion into Syria in order to assist the terrorist Free Syrian Army (FSA) based near the al-Tanf border crossing.

FSA allied forces have already entered Deir ez-Zour and Sweida numerous times in 2017 and have come close to Palmyra and Damascus, threatening combat with the Syrian military. If U.S. forces attempt to aid the FSA, such a move could lead to direct combat between Syrian and American military forces.

Earlier this week, Syrian Foreign Minister, Walid Muallem, stated that "We are not in confrontation with Jordan, but if the Jordanian forces invade our territories without coordination with us, we will consider them the enemy forces,"

At midnight, May 5, a series of four “De-Escalation Zones” were implemented across Syria. According to the agreement, no warplanes will be allowed to fly missions in territories included in the designated safe zones, including Syrian, Russian, and American warplanes.

The largest safe zone is comprised of Idlib province as well as adjoining districts of Latakia, Aleppo, and Hama, an area that contains around 1 million people. Other “safe zones” are located in the northern part of Homs, East Ghouta, Daraa, and Quneitra. The “safe zones” are slated to exist for six months, with the options of extending them after that time.

Journalist and analyst with The Rabbit Hole, Sarah Abed, wrote,

The memorandum, which comes into effect on May 5, envisages the cessation of hostilities between the sides, conditions for returning refugees, the restoration of destroyed urban infrastructure and the access of humanitarian organizations. Moreover, the checkpoints to control the movement of civilians and the ceasefire regime will be created along the de-escalation zone borders.

al-Qaeda Leader Praises White Helmets As "Hidden Soldiers Of The Revolution"

As hard as the Western corporate media works to employ propaganda techniques and tragic narratives with which to convince their respective populations that the terrorists funded by Western governments fight against the Syrian government are actually democracy-loving freedom fighters and selfless activists, more and more revelations come to light showing the true nature of heavily hyped groups like the White Helmets.

Indeed, it seems that, every week, another piece of evidence emerges revealing the White Helmets to be nothing more than a wing of al-Qaeda/al-Nusra designed to produce clever propaganda videos to tear at the usually hardened heartstrings of unsuspecting Americans. After having been exposed for housing themselves in the same building as Nusra/Qaeda, carrying weapons (also see Vanessa Beeley’s article here), using dangerous and erratic rescue and emergency techniques, proudly proclaiming support for terrorists and the desire to see Syrian military personnel killed, the White Helmets went on to sign documents and proclamations in support of Nusra in its effort to prevent civilians from access to drinking water.

Now, a little known video made by the leader of Tahrir al-Sham (al-Qaeda in Syria), Abu Jaber, on March 16, 2017, is making the rounds of social media, showing Jaber praising the White Helmets as the “hidden soldiers of the revolution” and thanking them for what they do.

Safe Zones To Be Implemented In Syria At Midnight

It has finally happened. Safe zones are now being implemented in Syria. In keeping with the twilight zone that is 2017, however, this time the proposal was initiated by Russia and allegedly supported by the Syrian government, excluding the United States from both the process and from further aerial bombing in the skies of Syria.

According to both mainstream and independent reports, the “safe zones,” which are essentially “no-fly zones,” go into effect at midnight May 5, 2017 (Damascus time). The plan involves the creation of four “safe zones” that will be continuously monitored by the countries who signed the memorandum agreeing to the creation of the zones. Those countries include Russia, Iran, and Turkey.

According to the agreement, no warplanes will be allowed to fly missions in territories included in the designated safe zones, including Syrian, Russian, and American warplanes.

The Russian Ministry of Defense has estimated that approximately 42,000 terrorists (described as “militants” are present within the confines of the safe zones. They will be protected against airstrikes.

Russia will, however, continue airstrikes against terrorists elsewhere in the country.

The largest safe zone will be comprised of Idlib province as well as adjoining districts of Latakia, Aleppo, and Hama, an area that will contain around 1 million people. Other “safe zones” will be created in the northern part of Homs, East Ghouta, Daraa, and Quneitra. The “safe zones” are slated to exist for six months, with the options of extending them after that time.

Interviews With Syrian Civilians Reveal White Helmets And Nusra/al-Qaeda Are The Same Thing

After having deconstructed the White Helmets’ propaganda narratives and the nature of the organization over a year ago, journalist Vanessa Beeley recently traveled to Syria and uncovered yet more proof that the White Helmets are nothing more than al-Nusra and al-Qaeda members simply acting as the terrorist organizations’ propaganda wing.

After demonstrating clearly that the al-Nusra headquarters and the White Helmets headquarters in Sakhour, East Aleppo were, in actuality, the same location, Beeley was able to talk with numerous Syrian civilians who suffered under Nusra’s control during the time in which the Syrian government had yet to retake and liberate East Aleppo. Beeley asked these civilians about the role of the White Helmets during that time and their answers might shock anyone buying into the propaganda narrative being disseminated by Western corporate media outlets and the poorly made award-“winning” documentary dedicated to them.

In Beeley’s series of interviews, one can hear for himself the statements coming from actual Syrians who lived alongside these terrorists as they tormented East Aleppo residents until they were driven out by the Syrian military.

“30th April 2017,” Beeley wrote, “I visited the White Helmet centres in Marjeh and Bab Al Nairab, East Aleppo, vacated since the liberation of East Aleppo from Nusra Front led occupation in December 2016. The White Helmets departed with Nusra Front in the buses that evacuated many of them to Idlib. They left behind undeniable evidence of the White Helmet affiliation with and allegiance to Al Qaeda, Syrian civilian testimony and paperwork, graffitti all testify to the White Helmets being Al Qaeda "with a facelift".

New Developments Suggest Potential False Flag Coming In Syria

There are now new developments in Syria which could be heralding yet another false flag chemical weapons attack that would be blamed on the Syrian government. Both Iranian FARS News agency and a number of independent journalists on the ground inside Syria are reporting movement of the notorious terrorist support group and propaganda outfit known as the White Helmets that signals the possibility of such an event taking place in the near future.

Sources are reporting that the White Helmets have moved into Ariha, a town located in Idlib province. The group apparently entered the town accompanied by some civilians including children. The sources themselves are suggesting that the group may have arrived in Ariha, which is located close to Khan Sheikhoun, the site of the previous chemical weapons incident, for the purpose of staging another false flag event.

Lebanese new agency, al-Mayadeen, added,

Civil sources in the Syrian city of Idleb revealed the arrival of the notorious White Helmets group in the town of Ariha, located in the southern countryside of Idleb.

According to the sources, a number of civilians were recently taken from the town of Saraqib to the town of Ariha. They were reportedly accompanied by a crew of one of the Arab satellite channels, apparently to prepare for a new provocation, similar to the alleged chemical attack on Khan Sheikhun, a town in Idleb province and which took place on the 4th of April.

Photos From Syria Show White Helmets And Nusra/Qaeda Are The Same Organization

Unlike journalists associated with the Western corporate media, Vanessa Beeley has been reporting from inside Syria on and off since early 2016. In many cases, while the Western corporate press was reporting in the most authoritative manner about the alleged “crimes against humanity” committed by the Syrian government in Aleppo despite having no one on the ground in those areas, Beeley was indeed present and able to directly contradict the lies spread by the corporate press with her own firsthand accounts.

Likewise, Beeley has led the charge against the ridiculous propaganda outfit known as the White Helmets, a terrorist support group that has been used by Western governments to lure well-meaning millennials into supporting al-Qaeda against the secular government of Bashar al-Assad.

It is well-known to anyone who spends even the smallest amount of time researching the Syrian conflict that the United States and Britain have been providing support to not only the White Helmets but also to terrorist groups such as al-Nusra, ISIS, and al-Qaeda among others. Indeed, ample evidence shows that the White Helmets are nothing more than a support group for al-Nusra, essentially acting as a propaganda wing of the organization. In other words, it is evident enough to anyone who exams the situation closely that the White Helmets and Nusra are the same organization.

Vanessa Beeley has now provided one more bit of evidence in this regard after a visit to the M10 hospital in Sakhour, East Aleppo, an area which had long been an al-Nusra Front stronghold and acted essentially as a compound and headquarters for the terrorist group’s operations in the area. After the liberation of East Aleppo, Beeley and a handful of independent journalists were able to travel to Sakhour and the M10 to investigate the aftermath of the battle. What they found was yet more evidence that the West’s precious White Helmets are nothing more than al-Nusra’s propaganda wing, as both Vanessa Beeley and I have documented repeatedly in the past.

Boris Johnson Says It Would Be Hard To Say No To War In Syria If U.S. Asks

Is there something about terribly bad hair that causes national leaders to be stricken with an incurable case of war psychosis? Is there some crinicultural reason for the lack of all sanity and even diplomatic décor when it comes to the possibility of launching a new military conflict or enflaming one already ongoing? Personally, I miss the days when world leaders would at least pretend that war was always the last choice before launching missiles, airstrikes and ground invasions that had been in the works years prior. But, alas, our current times are not so big on subtlety.

Still, it is unfortunate for those of us who live in them that orange caricatures and British fops are now the public faces of the Western establishment. At least in the past, if we strained our imagination, ignored all evidence, and took enough prescription drugs, we could believe our Presidents and Prime Ministers were actually in charge and that they truly had the best of intentions when they got elected. In fact, we could even believe they got elected! It was a stunning production that children growing up now may never witness.

Don’t get wrong, we still slaughtered millions of innocent people, jailed some of the most peaceful members of our society, made plants illegal, forced poisoning of children, and foreign wars. But it was a better show. The storyline made more sense. But like every Hollywood production, we jumped the shark some time ago.
