The Douma alleged “chemical weapon” furore has thrown the Syria narrative managers in Western corporate media into disarray. Their default defence mechanism has been to circle their wagons around the Syria “WMD” propaganda which has been instrumental in vilifying the Syrian government and allies.
In light of these numbers, it is fair to say that there is no “second revolution” on Iran’s horizon, nor any kind of significant rupture between government and populace on a whole host of key political, economic and security issues. Foreign commentators can spin events in Iran all they want, but so far Iranians have chosen security and stability over upheaval every time.
2021 is the year when the next Syrian presidential elections are due, and the government are intent on holding them whether or not the Constitutional Committee makes progress. This issue will loom larger and larger.
“Al-Qaeda terrorists operating in the north of Syria and oppressing millions of Syrians can now breathe comfortably after the United Nations Security Council extended their supply routes from their regional sponsor NATO member state Turkey for an additional Six months within its Resolution 2504.”
Last month, two conferences were scheduled in Montreal as part of Vanessa Beeley’s Canadian tour. As soon as they were announced, the speaker was subjected to volleys of invective, insults and slander from the proponents of the official narrative on Syria.
A mass was held in the Presbyterian church of Aleppo, Syria to honor the martyrdom of General Soleimani who had an essential role in the liberation battle of East Aleppo against US-backed Jihadists. Reverend Ibrahim Naseir is speaking.
Thanks in large part to Soleimani’s efforts, after so many decades of Western-led corruption, hate and brutality Iraq appears strong enough that they may even be able to expel the US immediately and even peacefully. I don’t think Soleimani would ask for any greater legacy than that – this is what he died for.
The thought has occurred to me that since my views on Syria and the White Helmets are identical to those of Beeley, suppose I proposed to give a talk at a Canadian university or public library. Would I, as a retired professor and senior scholar, be blocked in the way that Beeley was? Given the precedent of what happened to her, why should I be treated any differently?
