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.

Hello everyone,

There was good news over the last fortnight for anyone who is genuinely anti-war. That news took the form of the removal of John Bolton as national security advisor. The big question, however is what (who) will take his place. It would be at least a little naive to assume that his replacement will be anti-war. The best we could reasonably hope for is that the replacement is not as pro-war as Bolton.

The other news you would have kept on hearing about is tensions with Iran, which is connected to the departure of Bolton. While the fervour for war against Iran has been hopefully reduced with Bolton gone, there are still large segments of the government (both parties) and mainstream media (both ‘left’ and ‘right’) that are shilling for war.

I will not pretend that Iran is a peace-loving, innocent actor. This is simply not true. However, Saudi Arabia, a major enemy of Iran, is the most evil nation on earth, when judging by human standards (I know that we’re all evil in God’s perfect judgement). Saudi Arabia is the biggest exporter of extremism and terrorism on the planet (ignore the lying politicians and media who claim, with no evidence, that Iran is the biggest exporter of terrorism). Remember, Iran is Shiite. There are only about 100 million Shiites on the planet. Saudi Arabia is a Sunni land. There are up to 1.5 billion Sunnis on the planet.

Saudi Arabia is repressive beyond belief. Yes, so to is North Korea, but the latter is isolated whereas Saudi Arabia is a darling of the globalist agenda, and uses its vast wealth to spread its extremist Wahhabist ideology across the globe. The west is in bed with Saudi Arabia, so to is Israel.

To protest against the Saudi government in that country is a capital offence. To merely say something against it could see you tortured into giving a concocted confession of terrorism. The end result would be public decapitation, carried out by a government executioner. An identical fate could be expected by anyone who merely professes the name of Christ.

In Iran, Christianity is repressed, but at least tolerated. There is a small Christian community there who are tolerated as long as they don’t try to evangelise. Yes, this is bad enough, but still miles better than Saudi Arabia. Judaism is similarly tolerated in Iran, but not Saudi Arabia.

A prayer for peace would be good. But I would urge anyone to think twice before feeling any sympathy for Saudi Arabia, or its western and Israeli allies. Remember, as I’ve said before, Iran, and other ‘rogue’ nations, are targeted by the New World Order because they are somewhat sovereign. It has absolutely nothing to do with whether they are good, bad or indifferent. Nothing.

Don’t fall for the government-media propaganda about ‘democracy’, ‘human rights’, etc. If the western nations, Israel, etc, really cared about these things, they wouldn’t be friends with Saudi Arabia.

God bless. Have a good week.

Hello again to all,

I wish to share with you a little bit of info about the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, which is referred to by some as the worst catastrophe on the planet, even arguably worse than Syria.

Saudi Arabia, supported by other Gulf states, and backed by the west, Israel, etc, launched a war on Iranian-backed, Shiite Houthi rebels in Yemen several years ago. The brutal war is continuing. Saudi Arabia has openly admitted their strategy of deliberately targeting civilian locations with airstrikes, with thousands of Yemeni civilians killed as a direct result. The Saudis have also led a punishing blockade of Yemen, which has put over 10 million people at risk of starvation, and has deprived countless numbers of people in that country of critical supplies.

I don't have any figures to share with you, but can tell you that many people speak of what Saudi Arabia is doing against Yemen as a literal genocide. It certainly seems to be the case.

The other side of the coin is that, while Saudi Arabia is armed to the teeth with modern western weapons, they are generally not very good fighters. Slaughtering defenceless people is one thing, to face off against a tough, battle-hardened opponent is another. They have not fared very well overall in their battle with Houthi rebels. Yemen has very much become a quagmire for Saudi forces, who have lost thousands of their own forces.

They have bitten off more than they can chew, and there are now reports that they may've recently suffered their biggest military calamity to date at the hands of Houthi rebels, and on their own side of the border with Yemen. I'm certainly not saying that any of this is nice or desirable in any way. What I am saying is it clearly would've been much better for all involved if Saudi Arabia had never interfered in Yemen in the first place, or carried out a genocide against its people.

There have been some reports in mainstream media, but I now refer you to a link (below) from debkafile about the latest incident:

Hi Everyone,

I want to bring your attention back to the topic of the previous post, the civil war in Yemen, Saudi genocide against the Yemeni people, and pushback against Saudi Arabia by Shiite Houthi rebels in Yemen.

There is a good YouTube channel named the Ron Paul Liberty Report. It is anti-war, and against the military-industrial complex. While the military-industrial complex is obviously based in the USA at current, it is clearly a globalist, international institution. When I listened to this episode, which is about 23 minutes long, I thought of the Bible verse, Isaiah 2:4, 'And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.'

I thank God that one day He will put an end to the military-industrial complex. Link to the episode is below:

Hi again,

You would've heard of the recent Turkish invasion of northern Syria, heavily populated by Kurds, who the Turkish government have historically persecuted.

This was preceded by a US pullout from that area. I wouldn't blame the US for this, as they shouldn't be in the Middle East to start with.

The Turkish government is clearly evil and has no right to do what they're doing. Just so you know, whileTurkey is bombing from the air, they are working in unison with al-Qaeda linked Syrian rebels to do the dirty work on the ground.

There have already been reports of mass executions of Kurdish civilians, committed by the Turkish-backed rebels (in the dozens, as far as I've heard). There have also been reports of other war crimes by Turkey and its rebel proxies.

The Kurds have turned to the Syrian government and, by extension, Russia for help. For info, check the link below:

Hi again,

I came across a recent 16-minute video interview, titled, 'The Syria you won’t see: Max Blumenthal on visiting Damascus after the proxy war.'

I would recommend you take the time to watch it, especially if you've only started learning about the globalist agenda, military-industrial complex, New World Order, etc.

The individual interviewed has been to Syria, and points out how different the reality on the ground in Syria really is, compared to what we are told in corporate mainstream media. The individual discusses things which have been pointed out all along since the start of this forum, ie. the vast majority of western-backed 'rebels' were murderous terrorists (aligned with al-queda) right from the outset, even though the government-media complex used words like 'moderate' to describe them, and called them 'freedom fighters'.

The sinister role of western governments, the mainstream media and, of course, the military-industrial complex (the 'regime change' fans) are touched on. Just so you know, there is no obscene language in the interview, or confronting imagery. It's just an articulate interview on a rooftop, nothing more. Link is below:

Hello Again,

I refer you to a revealing article, by BBC of all places, about the latest Turkish offensive against Kurdish areas in northern Syria. Much of the fighting on the ground is being led by al-queda linked, Turkish-backed Syrian rebels who are little different to ISIS.

Turkey, remember, has quite a history of evil behaviour. I’m not talking about the person on the street there, I’m talking about the Turkish state. For starters, it carried out a genocide against Armenian Christians during the era of World War One, a historical fact which it has never admitted, or been held to account for (most estimates suggest one million or more victims).

More recently, it has been the biggest backer of the jihadist Syrian rebels since the start of the war and, along with Saudi Arabia, was the major state sponsor and supporter of ISIS until Russia managed to somehow convince it to (reluctantly)reduce its support for that particular terror group, a key factor in the ultimate downfall of ISIS.

The article linked below gives you a little bit of insight into the nature of these rebels, who have already committed numerous murderous war crimes in their latest attacks against Kurds in northern Syria.

The news which I share with you isn’t pretty, but it pays to stay aware of these geo-political developments, and not stick our heads in the sand about the awful state of our world. Granted, it’s sometimes very tempting to be deliberately ignorant for the sake of our own sanity. But too much ignorance is dangerous. It’s all about balance.

All the best. God bless you for the week ahead.
