The recent article in The Guardian written by suspected MI6-linked Martin Chulov is a sign of the collapsing regime change project driven by the UK and US intelligence agencies since well before 2011.
I talk to opposition MP in Turkey, Ilay Aksoy, about the 2.5 million Syrian children in Turkey many of whom are being exploited and abused on an unimaginable scale. Many are not going to school, child marriages are rife, children are being “rented” from their parents in Idlib under occupation of western-backed Al Qaeda affiliated armed groups. These children are then being repeatedly abused.
I speak to Peter Ford, former UK Ambassador to Bahrain and Syria, about the emerging geopolitical alliances in Afghanistan and how they will impact upon Syria and the region after the dust has settled on the theatre that is US withdrawal.
Israel used two civilian airliners carrying hundreds of passengers as human shields to camouflage their warplanes during the attack and delay the response of the Syrian Air Defence. Any mistake or miscalculated actions by Syria, could have led to a massacre. The Syrian Air Defence did a superb job avoiding civilian human shields and intercepting the Israeli missiles fired from warplanes violating Lebanese airspace.
We cover the recent unrest in Turkey and backlash against the growing Syrian refugee population, now believed to be an estimated five million. We talk about emerging energy sector alliances that may be surprising in who they bring together, partnering Israel with Lebanon to counter the rise of Russian influence in the region with Iran and Hezbollah and much more
Marouf is outspoken about the white supremacy and orientalism among even the supposedly independent media and does not shy away from calling it out. His voice is becoming more and more important as the instruments of power in western media and social media ratchet up their censorship of indigenous voices challenging the dominant war-mongering narratives.
Joining today for a very special roundtable on Syria will be Eva Bartlett, Vanessa Beeley & Kevork Almassian, here to discuss a recent surge in Syria propaganda.
Syrian analyst, Kevork Almassian addresses Western media lies and “Left” journalist integrity or lack of it.
War or regime-change propaganda is obviously nothing new. For the hundred years before the outbreak of the war on Syria, the Western establishment have provided bogus claims as pretext for war. Among the most infamous are Huns eating Belgian babies during World War One; Vietnam’s Gulf of Tonkin when the United States directly attacked Vietnam on the pretext of falsely claiming it was attacked by the Vietnamese; Iraqi soldiers removing babies from incubators in Kuwaiti hospitals in 1990; Weapons of Mass Destruction falling in the hands of al-Qaeda peddled by George Bush and Tony Blair regimes; Iraq’s purchase of Uranium from Niger; African mercenaries on Viagra killing and raping their way through Libya before the regime-change in Libya commenced.
