Excerpt from my article: White Helmets – Channel 4, BBC, The Guardian – Architects of ‘Humanitarian’ War
On the Edge of the Precipice
A review of the Sundance Film Festival described the three ‘Syrian’ entries as “three documentaries on the ravaging of Syria“, naturally there is no reference to the ravaging of Syria by the US/UK nurtured terrorist groups who have infested this sovereign nation, financed, armed,equipped and promoted by 74 UN member states, the Gulf States and Israel. Last Men in Aleppo achieved its primary objective:
“Last Men in Aleppo follows the White Helmets during the last months of that bombed-out city’s existence, as they go about their heroic task of scanning the skies for Russian and Syrian bombers, racing in jury-rigged trucks to newly collapsed buildings, and digging through the rubble to pull out the few living and many dead. In the evenings they worry about getting their own families out of Syria and about the family members who are already refugees in Turkey and Western Europe. They are some of the most amazing people you will ever see on the screen.”
Last Men in Aleppo has eradicated Nusra Front crimes against the Syrian people in East Aleppo and throughout Syria by simply refusing to recognise their existence. All those families who were starved, deprived of medical aid, tortured, abused, raped, imprisoned and used as hostages or human shields by the 5o brigades of extremists and terrorist factions that occupied East Aleppo, have been erased from a collective Western conscience. Audiences can go to the cinema, eat their popcorn and marvel at the “heroic rescue work” of the White Helmets without once remarking on their allegiance to the terrorist factions that ruled these decimated civilian areas with a rod of ideological iron.
Last Men in Aleppo has also airbrushed the REAL Syria Civil Defence who are battling not only the effects of war in their own country – the RSCD are battling terrorism, sanctions and crippling shortages of water, electricity, equipment. Much of their equipment was stolen by the extremist factions, from whose ranks, emerged today’s White Helmets. The genuine Last Men in Aleppo are the SYRIAN Civil Defence, established in 1953 in Syria (not in Turkey), who are rebuilding their centres after the terrorists fired more than 10 mortars per day into their yards, killing and maiming crew members.
When I visited these true rescuers in January 2018, crew members told me how Nusra Front snipers preyed upon the Layramoun centre in the midst of the terrorist held areas during the almost five year occupation. These true heroes who never abandoned the Syrian people are not honoured by Last Men in Aleppo. LMIA honours their murderers and abusers.

The REAL “Last Men in Aleppo” are the mentally handicapped and disabled who were abused and weaponised by the terrorist factions in East Aleppo, brainwashed into being suicide bombers, according to Dr Bassem Hayak, Director of the Ibn Khaldoun Psychiatric Hospital that is only just managing to repair and restore its premises after a series of terrorist occupations and murder of staff and patients.
I visited this hospital during my recent time in Aleppo in Dec/Jan 2018. Where were the White Helmets when these Syrian civilians were being punished & tortured for their vulnerability?

The Last Men in Aleppo were not the White Helmets – they left with Nusra Front on the green buses organised by the Syrian government to evacuate all the armed terrorists and their families in December 2016. The REAL “Last Men in Aleppo” were the civilians, emaciated, traumatised and broken by the ordeal they had been forced to endure for 4.5 years. An ordeal that the White Helmets had compounded and profited from. Children who were forced to watch the public crucifixion of their family members do not consider the White Helmets to be their saviours – they worked in solidarity with the terrorists who committed these heinous crimes.
The REAL “Last Men in Aleppo” are those civilians, now returning to the burned out shell of their previous, peaceful existence. The White Helmets are the arsonists who set fire to these lives and then portray themselves as the firefighters. An image that is reinforced by the corporate media in the West.
The REAL “Last Men (and women) in Aleppo” are many but they are not the White Helmets.
The Oscar awards and nominations may give a veneer of respectability to these terrorist henchmen among the ruling elite but it will never erase their crimes in the eyes of the Syrian people and these days, history is not written by the most powerful, it is written by the people whose voices will no longer be silenced.
White Helmet propaganda has seduced droves of human beings with a genuine humanitarian reflex that has been exploited by this “centre-piece” perception-changing construct. The story told by the White Helmet media and PR agencies has elevated this Al Qaeda support group to celebrity cult status. The world has fallen in love with what should most horrify it, while the people of Syria have their voices asphyxiated by Hollywood glamour and transformational mass communication.
A world has been created in which it’s possible for Al Qaeda’s ‘Civil Defence’ to be honoured on the stage at the Carnegie Hall, a world in which the architects of war are heralded as the Ambassadors for Peace. This world would not be possible without The BBC, Channel 4 and The Guardian who are at the centre of the propaganda web that is engineering the terrifying truth out of the dirty war on Syria.
