Of a type

"How They Sold the Iraq War" (St. Clair).  Excellent.  Warmongering as an advertising campaign.  Of course, we ought not to forget that the main warmongering was generated by the (((mainstream media))) lies amplifying the PR of the (((stinktanks))) like (((PNAC))).  It is funny they and their (((masters))) are calling for WWIII at the time of the anniversaries for the Iraq war and the My Lai massacre.

Murray continues his unique - and it should trouble us that he's the only guy actually interested in the truth of what happened - work:  "Boris Johnson Issues Completely New Story on “Russian Novichoks”" and "Boris Johnson Attempt to Refute My Sources on Porton Down the Most Hilarious Fail" and "Portonblimp Down – A Tale By Boris Johnson" and "D’un Type Développé par des Menteurs" and "Porton Down Scientists Under Extreme Pressure To Confirm Nerve Gas As Russian" and naturally, "On Being a Dissenting Voice in 2018" (note (((who))) is attacking him!)

It is hilarious how much trouble they are having with the Official Story, but troubling that the fact they are obviously lying seems to make no difference if the (((media))) is consistent in its warmongering:  ""No Patients Have Experienced Symptoms Of Nerve Agent Poisoning In Salisbury"" (Moon).

"Russiagate Comes to England" (Giraldi):
"And to throw out a really wild possibility, one might observe that no one in Britain had a stronger motive to generate a major confrontation with a well-defined enemy than Theresa May, who has been under fire by the media and pressured to resign by many in her own Conservative Party. Once upon a time suggesting that a democratically elected government might assassinate someone for political reasons would have been unthinkable, but the 2016 election in the United States has demonstrated that nothing is impossible, particularly if one is considering the possibility that a secret intelligence service might be collaborating with a government to help it stay in power. An incident in which no one was actually killed that can be used to spark an international crisis mandating “strong leadership” would be just the ticket."
"‘Silenced’? Ukrainian Military Pilot Accused of Attack on Boeing MH17 Found Dead".

"Former French President Sarkozy Arrested "Over Campaign Financing"" (Durden).  There must be some deep intrigue here, as this is the kind of enforcement of law that never happens.

The very definition of irony when a WWIII nuclear (((warmonger))) dies of radiation exposure:  "Cancer, George Monbiot and Nuclear Weapons Test Fallout" (Busby).  Where the hell did I put my tiny violin!

"Brennan, Venality and Turpitude" (Leupp).  "Former CIA Chief Brennan Running Scared" (McGovern).  There is a very distinctive courtly language of the imperial court in Washington.  It is in the way they always talk, so we don't notice it.  Trump pays little attention to it, but it is striking - the sour note of desperation - when one of the main courtiers fails to speak in the usual measured tones.

"Top US General Says American Troops Should Be Ready To Die For Israel" (Durden).  Naturally.  I wonder if we'll ever see a world where obvious self-serving traitors like May, Johnson, Brennan and Clark are appropriately punished for it.

"US Planning a Terrorist False Flag Chemical Attack to Justify Bombing Syria: Russia Says It Will Respond" (Pieraccini).  I'm still getting the very strong feeling that it is the Pentagon that is the Resistance to the (((warmongers))) (except for some spectacular traitors like Clark), and a large part of this is coming out of the US-Russian military liaisons necessitated by their proximity in Syria.

"Will Syria be the Battleground for All-Out War Between Russia and America?" (Magnier):
"ISIS has been reduced to a small pocket under US protection in north-east Syria. Actually, this area situated east of the Euphrates is today ISIS’s safe haven and it is therefore forbidden for Russia and the Syrian governmental forces to strike the terrorist group. Previous attempts resulted in the US heavily bombing local forces and their allies.

However, Russia has given enough time to the Syrian government to gather its forces, strike al-Qaeda and clear various enclaves, limiting the control of al-Qaeda and its allies to the vicinity and the city of Idlib, around Damascus (al-Ghouta and Yarmouk) and in the south (Daraa and Quneitra).

The Syrian army managed to divide the Ghouta areas despite the frenetic anti-Russian campaign mounted by mainstream media and the failed US attempts at the United Nations to stop the war on al-Ghouta and to keep this enclave as a sore thumb at the back of the main capital Damascus.

The US’s anger at the Syrian-Russian attack on al-Ghouta needs to be made clearer here: the US occupation of al-Tanf Syrian-Iraqi borders aimed to create a launching platform for its military operations towards Deir al-Zour in the north and al-Ghouta in the east. The US plan was to occupy the city of Deir al-Zour and al-Qaim north-east and the capital Damascus. But Iran went around the area where the US forces were positioned, isolating these in the al-Tanf pocket, and made a qualitative leap to liberate Deir al-Zour and al-Qaim by defeating ISIS forces, who withdrew towards the US area of influence east of the Euphrates.

Moreover, Al-Ghouta is a clear demonstration of the US’s failed plan to attack Damascus. The strategic military planning and link between al-Tanf and al-Ghouta was possible had the Syrian Army and Russia not intervened on time to surround it and attack jihadists to force these to surrenderer and pull out to Idlib. The US thought to create a real menace against Damascus and at least  prevent the parliamentary and presidential elections due next year. By controlling Ghouta, jihadists were supposed to keep up the pace of bombing to render the Syrian capital “unsafe”.

The US and the International community tried to stop the battles of al-Ghouta to no avail. This prompted Washington to exercise its favourite hobby of imposing sanctions on Russia, without succeeding in stopping the Syrian army (fighting without its allies – except Russia) from recovering its control over Ghouta. The answer came immediately from Moscow by bombing Daraa and hitting al-Qaeda’s area of influence in an indication as to where the future theatre of military operations is expected to be.

Again, events are moving very fast: the US response came quickly through its UK ally when Britain took advantage of the poisoning of the former Russian spy Sergey Skripal in London to accuse Moscow of being behind his assassination. The message here is clear: all means are legitimate for the control of the Middle East, specifically Syria.

Israel followed by demanding the return of  the UNDOF troops, withdrawn in August 2014 following the abduction of 47 UN peacekeepers by al-Qaeda (the ransom for their liberation was paid by Qatar). The Israeli demand coincided – I have learned from well informed sources –  with the gathering of forces of Syria’s allies, including Hezbollah, in Daraa, in preparation for future wide scale military operations. The US considers that the battle of Daraa is directly against itself and its Israeli ally, especially as it is party, along with Russia and Jordan, to the agreement to reduce the escalation there, to serve Israel and secure its security in southern Syria."
"Cambridge Analytica And The Manipulation Of People" (Debs is Dead at Moon of Alabama).  "Obama's Former Campaign Director Makes Bombshell Claim: Facebook Was "On Our Side"" (Durden).  Everybody was doing it, but CA was, at least for the one election, better at it (and specifically better at recognizing the importance of the rustbelt states, although it is also possible that the whole thing turned on Clinton's neurological problems and her physical inability to campaign in the key last days).  Of course, the Ukrainian prostitute honeypot offer is going to sink CA.

"Finally, Some Good News" (Roberts).

"Attack Against Nord Stream 2 Renewed with Vigor: Whose Interests Does It Meet?" (Gorka).  I'm still struck by the consistent pattern that the PR campaigns are always too late!

"BBC Accused of Photoshopping Jeremy Corbyn’s Hat to Look More ‘Russian’" (Zhang).

MbS's visit to the US is for two weeks!  Who does that?

"Jagmeet Singh should ask, ‘What would Thomas D’Arcy McGee do?’" (Geddes).  I'm firmly convinced that Canada is less of a shithole than most other places directly because of Thomas D’Arcy McGee, who was assassinated for it by religious nationalist terrorists - exactly like the nuts we're supposed to be sympathetic to today! - in 1868.
