At the end of six days in Damascus last week, and on the eve of Ramadan, I finally found time to re-visit a Palestinian-run art gallery and shop with my wife; we had been there eight years earlier, and before this terrible war that we could never have imagined was begun. At that time, in 2010, the sins of the […]
LONDON — The Jo Cox Fund, set up in memory of the slain MP soon after her death in 2016, was established by a cadre of pro-interventionist “humanitarians” with a history of involvement in past regime-change operations and whose connections to some of the world’s most ardent imperialists, as well as the Not for Profit Industrial Complex (NPIC), are legion. For that reason, […]
the alleged chemical attack in Douma on 7 April 2018, and other alleged chlorine attacks in Syria since 2014
Paul McKeigue, Jake Mason, David Miller, Piers Robinson Summary Early statements by the US and French governments that a nerve agent had been used in the alleged chemical attack in Douma on 7 April 2018 were rebutted by the OPCW Fact-Finding mission which reported that neither environmental samples obtained on-site nor blood samples from purported victims contained any trace of […]
his is a detailed summary of military and political developments in Syria since the start of the Russian military operation until now. (2015-2018)
The Western Press continues to support the elite transnational financiers and to scorn the actions of President Trump. This attitude makes it difficult to understand the progress made towards peace in Syria. Thierry Meyssan looks at the agreements reached during the last five months and the rapid progress on the ground.
It is no coincidence that some of the world’s most ardent imperialists are behind the cynical exploitation of one heinous murder — of British MP Jo Cox — to enable global mass-murder as well as human trafficking under the pretext of “ethical” and “humanitarian” intervention. Just over two years ago, the senseless and savage murder of British Labour Party MP […]
Now that the war in Syria is all but over with the Syrian army, backed by Russia, Iran and Hezbollah, rooting out the last jihadist remnants, we are seeing Western states taking in their terror assets. Maybe as a desperate intervention to stop them from revealing the dirty secrets of Western government collusion.
The Salisbury and Douma attacks are illustrative of just what happens when a government is prepared to dissimulate or even lie to go the extra mile to make a case to justify preemptive action that otherwise might be challenged. Theresa May is, unfortunately, still in power and so is Donald Trump. In a better world an outraged public would demand that they be thrown out of office and even possibly subjected to the tender ministrations of the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
The war on Syria is remarkable on many levels. One of these levels is the success of Western propagandists to prevent the truth from attaining widespread acceptance. Similarly, reputable researchers confirmed long ago what broad-based Western audiences still refuse to accept: On-the-ground evidence of liberated areas continues to reveal the monstrous crimes of the West’s terrorist proxies, and it continues […]
The Toran Center for Strategic Studies appears to have been established in early 2016, just after Russia had intervened in Syria in September 2015, at the request of the internationally recognised government there. Toran means “the mother nation of all Turks worldwide” according to Ali Mourad, an investigative journalist, based in Beirut. According to the Toran website: The Toran Center […]
As this most memorable World Cup reaches its exciting end game, the ‘noble absence’ of the British establishment will have been no loss to the wider-watching world. Hopefully, it will have helped highlight their gross hypocrisy and the enduring crimes of the British state.
Thierry Meyssan does not accept the story of the beginning of hostilities in Syria as presented by the Western and Gulf Press over the last seven years. He is therefore returning to these events to examine them in the light of certain elements which have become known since then. As in all science, political science moves closer to the truth by questioning its previous conclusions and integrating new observations into its reasoning.
