Hello again,

I wish to refer you to a show called 'Liberty Report'. It's by Ron Paul, and is available on YouTube. Many of you would know Ron Paul. He's a calm, measured and non-inflammatory individual.

He's a decent guy and very smart, too, and is generally an anti-establishment figure. I will link here to a very recent stream he did. It's only about 20 minutes. It highlights the disaster of the NATO-led destruction of Libya, the government-media lies that justified it, etc.

It also focuses on the fake, contrived 'humanitarian' concerns, desire for 'democracy', etc, and how they are used to provide propaganda cover for the furtherance of the New World Order. Another obvious fact pointed out is how, on most occasions, the people (usually labelled as 'rebels') backed by the west are worse than the governments they are seeking to topple. Link below:

Hello again,

There have been some military movements of late in Idlib governorate, the last one that remains a rebel-jihadist stronghold. It’s a delicate situation, as a government offensive to liberate the area would be incredibly bloody.

Yet, it is never a good situation when al-queda and its fellow-travellers are in charge of a whole province. As I may have mentioned before, I honestly don’t know what the solution is here.

It’s made all the more tricky by the fact that Russia is closely allied with the Syrian government, and has an uneasy alliance with Turkey, the major backer of the rebels. Anyway, the government forces recently took back a key town in the south of the province. For more info, click the link below:

I'd also like to recommend another article. It's a good one, written by a retired US army officer. If any of you are new to the forum, and don't have the time to dig back through to get an idea of what it's all about, this article will provide you a brief but succinct summary of what it's all about.

The piece is also through a modern lens. There is a (current) Democratic primary candidate called Tulsi Gabbard, and she is one of a very small number of consistently strong anti-war voices among the candidates. As a matter of fact, as someone who has followed it loosely, I can't think of another single candidate to present a strong (if any at all) anti-war position. Anyway, link is below:

Hello to everybody again,

Here is a little interesting article on what some see as the looming, Russian-backed government offensive on Idlib.

This is the last governorate largely under rebel control. As mentioned earlier in this forum, it's hard to see any good outcome for the governorate.

Link to article is below:
