  1. This is excellent–its contents endlessly disturbing. Kudos to Mr. Medhurst and PressTV. (Unable to “Like” this posting above.)

    The brief image of the Venezuelan father and daughter scrounging through a garbage can for scraps of food was especially searing to me.

    Would Russia and China stand up big-time. please? I beg them….

    Viva Venezuela! Viva Syria! (Always: Viva Palestine!)
