I really believe that we should have, and still should, take out [Assad's] airfields and prevent him from being able to use them to bomb innocent people and drop sarin gas on them.

Same con as in 2013:

"In November 2016, The New York Times acknowledged that ISIS had used chemical arms at least 52 times in Syria and Iraq."

Evidence Calls Western Narrative About Syrian Chemical Attack Into Question

Observers further noted that on April 1st, 2017, a doctor on the ground in Khan Sheikhoun, Dr. Shajul Islam, had received several shipments of gas masks in the days running up to the chemical incident. The revelations on Twitter fueled speculation that opposition figures were aware of the chemical attack days before it actually happened, contesting the narrative that the Syrian government was responsible. Daily Mail has reported that Dr. Shajul Islam was at one point sought by the British government in connection with the abduction of two journalists in Syria, and security services have stated that Islam and his brother may have had ties to ISIS executioner "Jihadi John."
Additionally, footage from the scene of the incident taken by the Syrian White Helmets appears to show that their operatives were not assisting victims in a manner that was consistent with established protocol on how to handle sarin saturated bodies. Images appear to show that Syrian White Helmet operatives were handling purported sarin victims with their bare hands, rather than with gloves, which is necessary to prevent the rescuer being injured by the chemical themselves. They also appear to be using simple dust masks, which are not suitable protection in the event of a sarin attack.
II. Rebels Are Known To Have Possessed And Used Chemical Weapons In Syria For Some Time
While the Syrian government surrendered their chemical arms stockpiles for destruction several years ago, evidence indicates that rebel groups in Syria have ramped up their own supplies of the deadly weapons systems and have not hesitated to deploy them in combat. On June 23rd, 2014, The Wall Street Journal reported that the Syrian government had completed the removal of all chemical weapons from the country per and agreement they had reached with the United States. The handover was confirmed by the United Nations Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. While the Syrian government have surrendered their chemical weapons, rebel groups have acquired and used them in increasing numbers.

The Real Reason The Federal Government Have Been Keen to Blame Russia for Everything

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-05...

"Let’s take a look at the next step. Now that Russia and China have systems to conduct global trade outside of the Federal Reserve Note, U.S. dollar, both nations can make decisions that benefit their countries, and benefit their business interest, without fear their currencies will be disabled like what happened to Iran in March 2012. Iran was only reconnected to the SWIFT system in February 2017. Having another nation control your currency can be devastating. Iran learned the hard way and both Russia and China now have the capability to keep all currencies functioning both internally and globally, outside the SWIFT, U.S. dollar system."

This article made me tear up. Absolutely beautiful and somber at the same time. The mythology of death has always fascinated me.

Also, I do believe the mandala effect has kicked in again. Didn't Chris Savia post a Thursday news brief as well?

...I forgot how I got here but everyone seems to be heading off in that direction. I hope someone brought food. I have a feeling this is going to be a long journey................

I like "The Saker" especially on matters Russian. Meyssan (voltairenet) has a similar take to that of Adams.

Judgement at this point has to be reserved about whether Trump is playing a calculated game of 3D chess, or whether he is just good at getting out of the rough into which his reckless shots almost always land.
If he keeps it up the OLD LADY will eventually beat him up with a putter.

There is a classic bit of CNN fake news bewilderment in this video. Confronted with some actual common sense questioning of the hyped narrative the anchor displays what might be called the "CNN blanch." War and war hysteria are the only things that save CNN’s deservedly slumping ratings -threats to ratings take precedence over everything else including the truth and the quest for truth.
Encouragingly perhaps, CNN at least did not stage one of their infamous “technical difficulties” ruses to cut short the interview with Massie.

"Please note that at no time has the White House or any western media acknowledged the controversy regarding the White Helmets, which we allege is part of al Qaeda’s propaganda operations. Nor is any mention of the dozens of proven gas attacks by FSA, ISIS and al Nusra which are suddenly “forgotten” as though by magic.
The White Helmets, supposedly an independent NGO, receives up to $100m from the CIA and UK Foreign Office, “dark project” funding. Murdering children is their stock and trade as we will prove. Sharing headquarters with Turkish Intelligence in Gaziantep, Turkey this organization is far more “death squad” than civil defense. Please review the included videos."

"Amid a media barrage to try to drum up public support for US-led military attacks on Syria and North Korea, the corporate media and the Turnbull government have launched an extraordinary vilification campaign against academics seeking to expose the lies behind last week’s US cruise missile strike on Syria.
The witch-hunt is an open attack on basic democratic rights, above all free speech—accompanied by demands that the University of Sydney censor, discipline or sack staff members for even calling into question the pretext for the illegal attack ordered by US President Donald Trump.
Clearly, there are deep fears in ruling circles about the publication of any information or criticism that lays bare the false justification for the US aggression and points to the record of similar fabrications concocted by the US and its allies, including Australia, to justify their endless predatory wars in the Middle East."

"We again have a situation where the White House has issued an obviously false, misleading and amateurish intelligence report," he concluded, recalling the 2013 situation when the Obama administration claimed Assad had used chemical weapons against the rebels in Ghouta, near Damascus.

"What the country is now being told by the White House cannot be true," Postol wrote, "and the fact that this information has been provided in this format raises the most serious questions about the handling of our national security."
