    Was this another case, of excess enthusiasm, without any evidence of value ?

    Or merely a demonstration of solidarity with the KSA, which recently purchased weaponry from the US/UK/FR ?

    Could have at least waited for the inspectors to do their job and see if evidence of a chemical attack exist. This is RT and the Russians are in control there, so I wouldn't take it for granted that is the truth either.

    Are you lot embarrassed?

    You should be.

    The footage of false chem attack is from a Syrian sponsored State TV film by the name of Revolution Man.....


    The film revolves around a journalist who enters Syria illegally in order to take pictures and videos of the war in Syria in search of fame and international prizes, and after failing to reach his goal, he resorts to helping the terrorists to fabricate an incident using chemical materials, with the aim of turning his photos into a global event.
    Yes the footage is staged because it’s fictional. You bunch of total Fupwits.

    Russian media ran with this as evidence of staged false flag nonsense.

    Idiots.

    Ironically, when he first came to power, he was looked on favourably by the IMF and western leaders because he began an all-out privatisation of Serbian industry. His ethnic nationalism actually undermined working class resistance to his neo-liberal policies, something an old leftie like Pilger air-brushes from all his pro-Milosevic accounts.

    This is what happens when you are so obsessed with western imperialism you cant recognise what is right in front of your face. It was Miosevics own actions that made the NATO intervention possible.
    Problem with blaming Milosevic for the atrocities is that his two main butchers were CIA assets.

    Roger Waters goes full loon.

    https://www.haaretz.com/middle-east-...ront-1.6007488

    Roger Waters denounced the White Helmets, a Syrian volunteer group and a 2017 Nobel Peace Prize nominee, during a concert last Friday in Barcelona, calling them a "fake organization" that prompted propaganda for “jihadists and terrorists.”

    The former Pink Floyd frontman claimed that listening to “propaganda of the White Helmets and others we would be encouraged to encourage our governments to go and start dropping bombs on people in Syria,” in a video posted on YouTube by a group called Hands off Syria.

    Interesting enough to learn that the Kurds expelled the white helmets from afrin as soon as they got control and they only returned once turkey took control.

    Now the Kurds tend towards socialism and seeing women as equal and the Turks used foot soldiers from jihadi groups.

    It makes you ask why the Kurds didn't want a civil defence unit.

    Maybe the white helmets are kosher but given the refusal to date to call jihadi fash what they are then its reasonable for people to ask are the white helmets also tainted with the people they are proximate to.

    It looks like the Kurds thought so.

    The Russians and Chinese as cheap weaponry manufacturers have to settle with supply the Theocracy in Tehran.

    And both sides are doing it in the name of the "religion of peace". The irony in all of this is off the charts.

    The worst thing that could happen for "business" would be if the Iranians had a secular revolution. In which case presumably there would be massive pressure on the West, to stop supplying the Salafists. And presumably the Russians and Chinese would then do deals.
    Yes. As proved here:

    Syria Airstrikes Instantly Added Nearly $5 Billion to Missile-Makers' Stock Value

    By JEN WIECZNER April 7, 2017

    Raytheon stock surged Friday morning, after 59 of the company’s Tomahawk missiles were used to strike Syria in Donald Trump’s first major military operation as President....
    The Tomahawk missile used in the strike is made by Raytheon (RTN, +0.49%), whose stock opened 2.5% higher Friday, adding more than $1 billion to the defense contractor’s market capitalization.

    The shares of other missile and weapons manufacturers, including Boeing (BA, -2.45%), Lockheed Martin (LMT, +0.21%), Northrop Grumman (NOC, -0.40%) and General Dynamics (GD, +0.08%), each rose as much as 1%, collectively gaining nearly $5 billion in market value as soon as they began trading, even as the broader market fell....

    Defense contractor stocks have risen in the months since Trump was elected, spurred by his promises of a “historic” increase in U.S. military spending. The budget Trump proposed last month includes an additional $52 billion for the Department of Defense. Boeing stock has gained nearly 21% since the election, while General Dynamics stock is up 14% over the same period. (The S&P 500 has risen roughly 11% since election day.)
