Consortium News: Don't Hold Your Breath on US Troop Withdrawal from Syria

It would be nice to think the president has final say on foreign policy, given the U.S. Constitution. But the misleading troop withdrawal announcement, followed by Trump's boastful tweet, suggests the exact opposite, says Patrick Lawrence.

Article update: Las Vegas Shooting 1-Oct-2017

After reading the majority of the recently released final police report by the LVMPD, i decided to update my article on the Vegas shooting. There isn't much that was changed and nothing earth-shattering, other than i removed the entire section regarding the 134-135 hotel room adjoining door because i think my speculation regarding the explosive breech was unfounded.

Other than that, there were bits of information that were confirmed in the final report and i made a lot of minor edits and did some polishing.

Faked Syrian gas attack video surfaces

21-Sep-2018

It appears that a video has been leaked which apparently shows the faking of the aftermath of a yet to happen gas attack in Syria in Idlib which RT, Veterans Today and others have been warning about.

While the Trump administration and the lapdog mainstream (legacy) media have been warning that yet another gas attack orchestrated by Assad is imminent, several alternative news outlets have been warning that this attack, like all of the previous alleged gas attacks, would be faked in order to justify further U.S.-Israeli aggression in Syria with the goal of ousting Assad.

The video is damning indeed if that is what we are seeing. The Arabic title of the video translates to something along the lines of 'Video lexicon showing the preparation of terrorists "White Helmets" for the fabricated fabrication of the use of chemical weapons in Idlib'.

In the video we see several instances of what appears to be dead or incapacitated "victims" who are obviously not dead nor incapacitated. In one instance, an apparently "dead victim" adjusts his shirt after being loaded into an ambulance. We also see "victims" being reused in different videos or scenes in different places and "victims" being loaded into ambulances multiple times.

Video: Why Is Assad An Insane Suicidal Monster? – The Corbett Report

As we know from the political puppets and their mouthpieces in the controlled corporate media, Syrian President Basher al-Assad is a bloodthirsty monster responsible for the wanton slaughter of (fill in the number) of his own citizens, and he particularly enjoys dropping chemical weapons on women and children despite knowing that this is the one thing that will bring him universal condemnation and ensure a full-scale assault on his country. . . But why? Why is he such a monster? That is the question, and the New York Times offers its own helpful explainer with predictably comic results.
