The liberation of Idlib, and also Hama, Latakia and Aleppo countrysides, will mean not only an end to terrorists’ incessant bombing of civilians, but also an end to the savage rule of terrorists – rule which in every prior instance around Syria has meant imprisonment, torture, and public executions of civilians by sword or point-blank assassination, starvation, rape of women, and even organ theft.
A federal grand jury has announced 17 additional charges under the Espionage Act against WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange, who is currently in a UK jail awaiting an extradition hearing.
Greatly concerned about these accusations and desperate to rehabilitate ourselves in the eyes of this responsible citizen – and also hopefully mitigate any punishment by OFCOM, a body we both fear and respect – Mike Raddie responded with the urgency such an indictment deserves; almost immediately, in fact, after he’d made himself a nice curry, drank a few glasses of wine, and finished re-watching the last three episodes of Breaking Bad.
Following the recent cruise missile strikes on Syria by USA, UK and France RT discusses fallout especially now OPCW investigation has begun.
The week that has just ended was exceptionally rich in events.

London had attempted to provoke a major conflict, but lost to Russia, President Trump and Syria.
Francis Boyle, an international law professor at the University of Illinois, told RT that while Bensouda is likely to get approval for the investigation, the move is simply a “propaganda stunt.” He added that Bensouda has no desire to go after any Americans who committed war crimes.
The presence of any sort of US troops in Syria was not authorized by either the elected government in Damascus or by the United Nations.
Though Earnest did not say specifically which forces the US advisers will be aiding, he did refer to a group 45 kilometers outside the IS capital of Raqqa, which the media has been calling ‘Syrian Democratic Forces’ [newspeak for those fighting against the democratically elected government of Syria]
In these anxious circumstances, the BBC broadcasting an emotionally laden piece of apparently raw undoctored footage in which a female doctor talked about “chemical weapons” becomes loaded with potential propaganda impact. People might easily believe they were watching proof that Assad did possess and use chemical weapons, and that in turn might help to turn the tide in favour of military action against him.
I think the British and the American governments for the past ten years have been protecting each other, and we know why – because George Bush and Tony Blair would have been implicated – they are all implicated.
