Thousands of Dead Corpses Still Litter Syria:
Over 30,000 Islamic terrorists have been killed in anti-terror operations, but the authorities are having problems sending the bodies back to their country of origin, the chairman of Syria's Forensic Medicine Committee told Sputnik.
Governments who claimed being friends of Syrian people are the ones responsible for Syrians' suffering:
The solution to the crisis in Syria is a political solution based on inter-Syrian dialogue and under a Syrian leadership without any foreign interference or any preconditions
This is a historic and dangerous development which only increases the chances of total war.”
Over the last 24 hours, the United States has made clear its status as a hostile occupational force in Syria. Yesterday, the US issued a communique to the legitimate Syrian government and the Russian anti-terrorist coalition assisting the Syrians. The United States has indicated that it has carved out a swath of Syria with boots on the ground fulfilling the roles of active duty personnel, such as special ops forces, advisors, trainers, mechanics, and supporting units. The US has declared a no fly zone and threatened to target and shoot down Syrian and Russian planes within Syrian airspace [over the Kurdish autonomous region – ed].
On Monday, August 22nd, the United States government — which demands the overthrow of the internationally-recognized-as-legal government of Syria — officially announced that America’s military forces in Syria will continue to occupy Syrian land, no matter what the Syrian government says, and will shoot down any Syrian planes that fly over U.S. forces there and attack them.
US ILLEGALLY VIOLATES the SOEVERIGNTY of SYRIA, sets up a Military Base to provide military cover for DAESH/ISIS and their ZIONIST KURDISH ALLIES and then they have the GALL to warn Syria to back off bombing their terrorists
Top US commander warns Damascus & Moscow against operations near American positions :
Counter measures will be taken by US troops in case they "feel threatened" by Syrian or Russian air forces, according to a senior US military official.
Syria bombs U.S.-backed forces in latest Syrian battle: Video -
Until now, the U.S. has merely backed Kurdish troops fighting against the Assad regime's forces in Syria's civil war. But as fighting heats up, American forces may be pulled directly into the fray.
Don’t you find it questionable and deceitful how the Turks one minute blame the USA for the ‘coup’ and then join forces with the USA, using US Planes to bomb Northern Syria and how they back the so called ‘moderate rebels’ which in reality are USSRAEL’s very won DAESH/ISIS/AL Qaeda or whatever other name they want to be called by.
I still suspect and think the ‘Coup’ was staged by USSRAEL and Erdogan to allow him to purge all the Military and Political Opposition against him in Turkey and that they are duping the Russians unless of course Russia is n on it too considering Putin’s close friendship with Israel with whom he liaises Russia’s attacks in Syria, and with Kissinger. The only Victims here sadly and tragically are the Syrian people whose lives are being played with on this evil Zionist grand chessboard between the West V Russia which frankly must decide whose side she really want to ally herself with. Right now my heart goes out to the Syrians fighting for their lives and for the very future of their Country which ISRAEL/JEWS want destroyed and fragmented. At this moment in time I loathe Israel, all its Western and Arab Allies and Turkey and I also do not TRUST Putin.
Turkey Launches Artillery Barrage on Northern Syria:
Turkish officials say that the strikes are aimed at opening a corridor for an "operation." Earlier on Monday, Ankara had vowed to "completely cleanse" militants from its border region in the wake of the suicide bombing attack that left over 54 people dead at a wedding over the weekend.
Kurdish militia launches assault to evict Syrian army from key city of Hasaka:
The Kurdish YPG militia launched a major assault on Monday to seize the last government-controlled parts of the northeastern Syrian city of Hasaka after calling on pro-government militias to surrender, Kurdish forces and residents said.
A Lawless Plan to Target Syria's Allies
By Ray McGovern
Washington's disdain for international law, was underscored by ex-CIA acting director Michael Morell voicing plans for murdering Iranians and maybe Russians in Syria.
The French are such hypocrites with their phony’ civilised’ norms of behaviour and western values that are superior to ‘Islamic Values’ when in reality they are nothing more than war criminals, RACIST Colonialists just like the Americans, Canadians, Aussies , Brits and Israelis. France is responsible for so many atrocities/Genocide against Africans and North African Arabs. A Despicable Colonialist and racist Republic
Syria says that French intelligence agencies orchestrated the deadly chemical attack in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta to divert UN weapons inspectors from another incident carried out by militants in Aleppo.
The Pentagon has warned Syria and Russia that the US is ready to shoot down their planes, which Washington claims threaten American advisers in northern Syria.
The warning came after US fighter jets had tried to engage Syrian Arab Air Force aircraft in Syria last week, but the showdown was avoided as government planes left before the Americans arrived.
After warning Syria not to fly planes in the Hasakeh Province or risk getting them shot down by US planes in the area, the Pentagon is struggling to convince reporters that there is some sort of distinction between this zone you can’t fly in and a “no-fly zone.”
Fighting erupted between Syrian Army and Kurdish YPG forces in the city of Hasakeh late last week, with the YPG attempting to take the rest of the city, which had long been jointly held and jointly defended, As the fighting escalated, Syrian warplanes bombed Kurdish forces.
The US has its trooped embedded with the Kurdish forces, and argued that the Syrian airstrikes were endangering them. Over the weekend they repeatedly scrambled fighter jets to chase off the Syrian planes, warning they were going to ‘defend themselves.”

A short memo to Pentagon Spokesperson Cook, please: just how stupid do you think Americans are, to swallow this codswallop?!?
What the US government and military have done is to set up a de facto "no fly zone" here, no matter what you call it.
The Russian defense ministry announced on Monday that it has called back its air fleet from Western Iran after accomplishing all planned anti-terrorism missions in Syria, but meantime underlined that similar missions will be conducted from the Hamadan air base in future based on mutual agreement with Tehran.
Neocons and liberal hawks have poured millions of dollars into propaganda to justify “regime change” in Syria and are now desperate to keep the war going until President Hillary Clinton gets a chance to escalate, as Rick Sterling describes.
Neocons and Clintonites have launched a major campaign with the goal of direct U.S. military intervention and aggression against Syria, potentially leading to war with Iran and Russia.
An early indication emerged as soon as it was clear the Hillary Clinton would be the Democratic Party nominee. Following the California primary, The New York Times reported on State Department diplomats issuing an internal memo “urging the United States to carry out military strikes against the government of President Bashar al Assad.”

‘.................There has been lots of publicity around a letter to President Obama, supposedly written by 15 doctors in East Aleppo. The letter ends “We need your action.” The flow and wording of the letter suggests it may have been composed by a marketing company and there has been no verification of the doctors who supposedly signed it.
The letter was likely written by a paid Syria War propagandist or Washington lobby firm. Read the letter here and judge for yourself. For contrast watch this interview with a real Syrian doctor not mouthing propaganda from K Street in Washington D.C.
An online Change petition asks German Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Barack Obama to “save the people of Aleppo.” The publicly funded Holocaust Memorial Museum has promoted the video #SaveSyria. One of the producers of the video is The Syria Campaign which is the marketing organization which branded the pervasive “White Helmets,” as documented in “Seven Steps of Highly Effective Manipulators”..............................’

My dear Neocons/Clintonites; forgive me for my perplexity here.
The Russian military has been invited by the Syrian government to get rid of all the jihadists, attacking the country of Syria.
To the best of my knowledge and belief, as of today, the US military has NOT been invited to do the same, yet the US military is attempting, directly and indirectly, to bomb the crud out of Syria in order to affect regime change in Damascus.
And yesterday, the following statement was made by a very high ranking military official, to the effect that the US is ready to bomb Russian troops, defending the Syrian government;
Pentagon Says US Ready To Target Russian & Syrian Planes In Syria
Forgive me, but have you all gone collectively barking mad, just to please your Israeli/AIPAC enablers?!?
Israel wants regime change in Damascus in order to ultimately destroy Iran.
The US military, at this point in its existence, does not have the weaponry, the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia. Our weapons procurement system is incestuous in the extreme, because those same Congressional Representatives who award weapons contracts are those same Representatives getting large contributions from our major arms manufacturers.
And how does this translate?!? By the time weapons are delivered to those military personnel who are supposed to use them, they many times are obsolete, in terms of other countries' weapons development, dysfunctional, and way over budget.
And one of the things which strikes me here is...the timing of this pressure on Obama to escalate this war. The November election looms large, and I am willing to bet that both the DNC's and White House's internal polling show Trump winning that election in a landslide.
And what could be the nastiest thing the Democrats could possibly conjure, even before Trump takes the Oath of Office?!?War with Russia over Syria must certainly sound like a delicious option to them.
After all, it is generally never their kids who get who get killed, or maimed for life, in such wars; it's other people's kids.
But a video posted by Chinese state broadcaster CCTV questions the authenticity of the video, claiming it may have been created in order to provide an "humanitarian excuse" for Western countries to become involved in the Syrian crisis.
Republishing the footage under the heading "video suspected of being fake", a voiceover says: "Critics have suggested it is part of a propaganda war, aimed at creating a humanitarian excuse for Western countries to become involved in Syria.
“The workers did not make rapid rescue efforts, and instead quickly set up a camera.”
The Kremlin has also accused the West of using Omran's images for "cynical exploitation" and "cliched anti-Russian propaganda."
How many times have we seen this before? Western media selectively focusing on, or distorting, human suffering in order to fulfill a base political agenda – war – for powerful interests.
It is no coincidence Western media fevered with images of a five-year-old boy, pulled from rubble in Aleppo after an alleged air strike by Syrian government or Russian forces – and the very next day US warplanes were scrambled over northern Syria reportedly to ward off Syrian Su-24 fighter bombers.
American political analyst Randy Martin at crookedbough.com told this author: “This is a prelude to an all-out war in Syria – one that would inevitably bring American and Russian forces into direct confrontation.”
