Assad’s Interview with Italian Broadcaster It Refused to Air

Censorship is the new normal in the US and other Western countries, wanting views conflicting with the official narrative suppressed — especially when exposing high crimes of state, what crucifying Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning and others like them is all about.

Why did Italy’s Rai News 24 interview Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus, then refuse to air his remarks? Clearly it’s because he spoke uncomfortable hard truths, laying blame for endless war in Syria where it belongs.

The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) published his late November remarks.

Stressing Syria is coming out of the war stronger, he explained that government forces liberated most of the country from terrorists.

Many thousands remain in Idlib province, supported by the US, NATO, Israel, Turkey and the Saudis.

He slammed Ankara for “invading our territory last month,” part of President Erdogan’s revanchist aims.

Things are slowly returning to normal in liberated areas. Assad debunked fake news about civil war in Syria. US aggression launched it, supported by other Western countries, the Saudis, Turkey, Israel and their imperial partners.

Assad: There’s no “civil war…no sectarian war…no ethical war…no political war. It was (and remains) terrorists supported by outside powers. They have money and armaments.”

Commenting on Russian involvement in aiding government forces combat terrorists, Assad said Moscow “believes that (observing) international law (is) in the interest of everybody in the world,” adding:

“(B)y supporting Syria, they are supporting international law. (They’re combatting) terrorists in the interests of the Russian people.”

Moscow is combatting the scourge of US-supported terrorists to avoid combatting them domestically, it hopes.

Syria is also a training ground for Russia’s military to hone their battle skills in case needed to defend the homeland against US aggression.

Putin doesn’t support Erdogan’s aggression in northern Syria, said Assad, adding he’s trying to convince him to leave.

“Syrian (territorial) integrity and sovereignty are in contradiction with the Turkish invasion” and US occupation of northern and southern Syrian areas. “That is very obvious and clear,” Assad stressed.

Who launched war on Syria, he asked? “Who created this problem?” Who’s responsible for millions of refugees?

It’s “because terrorism (is) supported by Europe – and of course the United States and Turkey and others.”

He called EU/NATO countries the “main player(s) in creating chaos in Syria” because their ruling authorities supported US terrorist foot soldiers “from the very beginning.”

Syria’s liberating struggle is all about protecting and preserving its sovereignty and territorial integrity, along with the freedom and welfare of its people, Assad stressed.

“The most crucial part in liberating any area militarily is to have the support of the public in that area or in the region in general. That has been clear for the last nine years,” he said, adding:

“(Y)ou cannot have public support (by) killing civilians.” The main problem to overcome is support by the US and its imperial allies for proxy jihadist foot soldiers, aided by Pentagon-led terror-bombing.

Asked about accusations of Syrian use of chemical weapons, Assad stressed that “since the very beginning of war,” government forces never used these weapons, notably not against civilians they’re trying to liberate.

Addressing fake news about an alleged Douma CW incident reported by the OPCW, Assad stressed:

“That never happened, never. You only have these videos of staged chemical weapons attacks.” <span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>

“There’s a mismatch between what we saw in the video and what they saw as technicians or as experts.”<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>

“Chlorine (cited by the OPCW) is not a mass destruction material. (T)he amount that they found is the same amount that you can have in your house. It exists in many households and used maybe for cleaning and whatever.” <span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>

“That’s what the OPCW did. They faked and falsified the report, just because the Americans wanted them to do so.” <span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>

“(T)he OPCW is biased…politicized, and is being immoral, and those organizations that should work in parallel with the United Nations to create more stability around the world – they’ve been used as American arms and Western arms to create more chaos.”

The above and related remarks about Western support for terrorists is why Rai News 24 failed to air the interview with Assad.

Asked if he feels like a survivor, he said:

“If you want to talk about a national war like this, where nearly every city has been harmed by terrorism or external bombardment and other things, then you can talk about all the Syrians as survivors,” adding:

“I’m a part of those Syrians.<span class="Apple-converted-space">  </span>I cannot be disconnected from them. I have the same feeling.” <span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>

“(I)t’s not about being a strong person who is a survivor. If you don’t have this atmosphere, this society, or this incubator to survive, you cannot survive.” <span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>

“It’s collective. It’s not a single person. It’s not a one-man show.”

The struggle for Syria’s liberation has a long way to go because of US rage for endless war.

One thing is clear. Because Russia intervened in the war years earlier, Syria’s leadership and military forces defeated US aims to gain another imperial trophy.

'We've thrown most people under the bus and it's our own fault': Lib Dems turn on Jo Swinson's legacy of 'wrong decisions' as she is forced to step down after LOSING her seat

'The Liberal Democrats turned on their leader Jo Swinson today after she was ousted from her own seat in Scotland following a disastrous General Election campaign.

The party's former deputy leader Simon Hughes launched a scathing attack on her as he said 'every strategic decision' taken since she took over had been wrong.

It came after Miss Swinson, 39, lost East Dunbartonshire to the SNP's Amy Callaghan by just 149 votes - and when the result came in First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was caught on camera in nearby Glasgow celebrating like a football fan.

Lib Dem grandees Sir Ed Davey and Baroness Sal Brinton will now become the joint acting leaders of the party with a leadership election following in the new year.

Today, Mr Hughes told Sky News: 'Every single decision taken since Jo became the leader and Ed (Davey) became the deputy leader has been the wrong decision.

'Every strategic decision. They decided to go for revoking Article 50, having ignored the referendum. They decided that they could argue that that was because we might be a majority government. Incredible, incredible - nobody believed it.

'Jo led the campaign on the basis that she could be the prime minister - incredible. Nobody believed it. She was almost unknown.'

Why 'get Brexit done' was such a powerful mantra

MAGICIANS are very aware of the power of three….

Three words or a word repeated three times can be very powerful tools to convey an important message to the human mind.

And that was played to perfection both before and during the General Election campaign.

Think back into recent history and there are interesting examples.

Ask anybody to recall words said by disgraced former Prime Minister Tony Blair and I guarantee ‘education, education, education’ will be at or near the top of the list. Had he merely said ‘education is our priority’ his speech would not have been nearly so memorable.

Ask the same of Theresa May and ‘Brexit means Brexit’ and ‘strong and stable’ are sure to score highly.

The even more disgraced Sir Jimmy Savile charmed audiences with phrases such as ‘now then, now then, now then’ which subconsciously invited the mind to listen with attention to whatever he said next. It also has power because the words are contradictory and mix up the mind but that’s a mental cul-de-sac.

I’m referring quite clearly to Boris Johnson’s mantra of ‘get Brexit done’ that has dominated his personal message for months.

He did, of course, repeat these words ad infinitum to the point where many people would have gladly throttled him given the chance. But repetition is also a very important part of the conditioning process.

The message, however, also needs to be appealing to a good many recipients.

You or I could shout ‘England are great’ from the rooftops but unless there is credibility it will eventually be returned to you with ridicule, as with Mrs May when not only was she unable to deliver Brexit but her government was anything but ‘strong’ or ‘stable’.

Consider this before we go into further details as to why this was a winning message.

Almost all polls publicised in the last couple of years suggested that the tide of the country was turning towards Remain.

Yet in all three polls that have actually counted the message has been very different – the 2017 General Election in which 83 per cent voted for the Tories and Labour when both promised to at least ‘honour the referendum’, the European election earlier this year when a Brexit Party with no history topped the British vote and now Boris Johnson’s surprisingly overwhelming victory.

And that is because the human mind values precision when making a judgement.

Asking folk how they would vote in a second (or third) referendum when Brexit was being daily associated with shambles and chaos and it’s hardly surprising Remain was victorious.

But change that question to ‘should the 2016 referendum result be implemented?’ and you would have got a far different outcome. No chance of a 52-48 cliff edge there to coin a Brexit phrase.

And there lies the key to the popularity of Boris’ message.

He didn’t say ‘Brexit is brilliant’ or ‘we must Leave’ which would have raised more objections but appealed to an ever-growing public sense of wanting Brexit out of the way.

And this won over soft Remainers as well as Leave voters.

I’m referring to those who voted Remain in 2016 and probably would have done so again if given the same choice – but who nevertheless believe that a democratic vote should be respected.

They, too, want Brexit done and dusted out of a genuine sense of fairness.

The sadness, of course, is that Brexit can’t be done, not for several years, but it’s the appeal of the message, allied to being repeated over and over again, that’s more effective than whether it’s true or realistic.

So, in summary, Boris and his PR gurus knew exactly what they were doing – get a very simple three-word message and sell it as many times as humanly possible.

It worked a treat on Thursday but it may yet return to ridicule Boris in years to come unless he delivers the goods.

David Bellamy has died - the legendary broadcaster who had his career destroyed for saying that human-caused climate change is nonsense. Truth must have no place in a world of monumental deceit

'Botanist and broadcaster David Bellamy has died aged 86, the Conservation Foundation he formed has said.

London-born Bellamy, who became a household name as a TV personality, scientist and conservationist, died on Wednesday, according to the foundation.

His colleague, David Shreeve, described him as a "larger-than-life character" who "inspired a whole generation".

In later life Bellamy, who lived in County Durham, attracted criticism for dismissing global warming.

In 2004 he described it as "poppycock" - a stance which he later said cost him his TV career.

Bellamy worked in a sweet factory and as a plumber before embarking on his broadcasting career.

His scientific career began when he got a job in the biology department of a technical college in Surrey, he told BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs programme in 1978.

It was there that he met his future wife, Rosemary.

But it was on a trip to Scotland where he discovered his love for plants, he told the programme.

"I got really turned on by plants and I found out that if somebody told me what a plant was, I just couldn't forget it," he said.'

Nolte: Greta Thunberg Says We Will ‘Put World Leaders Against the Wall’
John Nolte14 Dec 2019

Cuba Archive has documented dozens of people, including many children, killed attempting to escape Cuba with Raúl in a leading role. His Air Force carried out the Canimar River Massacre of July 6, 1980, when dozens were murdered. Many more unarmed civilians are believed to have suffered similar fate at the hand of special Air Force units dedicated to spotting and sinking rafts. Like countless others, on January 19, 1994, two young men -Iskander Maleras and Luis Angel Valverde- were killed by Cuban border guards stationed around the U.S. Naval Base at Guantánamo operating under Raúl’s direct orders to shoot. He rewarded their deed with medals and promotions.

As Defense Minister, Raúl Castro is responsible for war crimes in and out of Cuba.

Time’s “Scold of the Year,” Greta Thunberg, told a crowd in Italy that “we will make sure we put world leaders against the wall” if they do not do what she tells them to do.

On her way home, the 16-year-old Swedish eco-activist and chronic truant stopped to address a Fridays for Future gathering in Turin, Italy, at which she went the full-Fidel Castro.

“Unfortunately, we probably already know the outcome. World leaders are still trying to run away from their responsibilities but we have to make sure they cannot do that. We will make sure that we put them against the wall and they will have to do their job to protect our futures,” she said, according to the Daily Mail.

“Against the wall” is fairly common jargon in revolutions,
especially youthful revolutions, and the accepted translation means executions — lots and lots of executions, specifically firing squads, where the old leaders are permanently removed by fresh-faced revolutionaries.
