Corporate Media Spin: Terrorist Bunkers in Idlib Become ‘Hospitals’

In the western media narrative, SAA-targeted underground bunkers and terrorist run prisons become ‘hospitals’. We should not allow ourselves to be collectively hypnotised into believing the media hype that would portray armed-group murderers as heroes, and the Syrian people and government struggling to expel them from the country as villains. IDLIB PROVINCE, SYRIA (Report) — In recently liberated Qalaat Al Madiq […]

BSNews correspondence with BBC’s Kirsty Wark on Assange

In December 2010 I watched an interview with Julian Assange conducted by Newsnight’s Kirsty Wark. See for yourselves below how it was conducted, with Wark pressing the ‘sexual offender in danger of absconding’ line repeatedly even as Assange attempted to explain that he had stayed in Sweden for five weeks after the allegations emerged and only left after seeking permission […]

White Helmets alleged involvement in organ, child trafficking and staged events in Syria – Vanessa Beeley interview.

On the 4th April 2019 I joined Ryan Cristian, founder of The Last American Vagabond, to discuss the latest claims made by Syrian civilians that the UK Foreign Office-financed, promoted and protected intelligence asset, the White Helmets, are participating in cross-border organ trafficking operations, child abduction and the production of staged events designed to facilitate further aggressive intervention by the U.S/U.K-led coalition.  […]

US officials offered my friend cash to take down Tehran’s power grid

It took a country-wide power outage in Venezuela, whispers of a cyberattack, and smug tweets from US officials to make me suddenly recall the cloak-and-dagger story of a close Iranian-American friend nine years ago. My friend, an engineer — who I will not name for obvious reasons and who I will call ‘Kourosh’ for the purpose of this article — revealed to me in 2010 that he was approached […]

Marie Colvin, Homs and Media Falsehoods about Syria

Introduction In April 2014 I was part of an international delegation which visited Syria for five days. The delegates came from many different countries. Among the notables were the Irish Nobel Laureate Mairead Maguire, a Syrian-British heart surgeon and Julian Assange’s father. We spent time in Damascus, then traveled by bus to Latakia and then Homs. In each city we […]

Damascus Threatens to Respond to Israeli Attack With Strike on Tel Aviv Airport

The Permanent Representative of the Syrian Mission to the United Nations has said that Damascus might respond to an Israeli airstrike on Damascus Airport with a symmetric strike on Tel Aviv Airport. Permanent Representative of the Syrian Arab Republic to the United Nations Bashar Jaafari said that it was time that the United Nations Security Council took action to stop constant Israeli attacks […]

Endgame for Assange

The theatre director Angela Richter visited WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in Ecuador’s embassy in London. For the last time, she fears. Julian Assange looks very pale. “Pale” isn’t quite accurate; his skin looks like parchment, almost translucent. He hasn’t seen the sun for almost seven years. He sits opposite to me in the so-called Meeting Room of the Ecuadorian Embassy […]

REVEALED: Israel’s IDF Used Passenger Airliners as Cover During Christmas Day Attack on Damascus

Yesterday, Israel carried out an unprovoked Christmas Day attack against Syria. According to reports citing the Russian Ministry of Defense, six Israeli F16 fighters violated neighboring Lebanese airspace and while passing over Sidon, fired 16 laser-guided GBU-39 bombs towards targets in and around the capital city of Damascus, 14 of which were intercepted by Syrian air defense systems.  More shocking […]
