As I said and it would appear I was fairly accurate with my opinion, that the 55,000 photos were in the main intended to deceive and were used as propaganda by the US and the MSM. The General demonization of Putin and Assad by the US and its allies is all based on this sort of propaganda ..... the latest claims by NATO that Putin is deliberately causing the refugee crisis in Europe to destabilise the EU, is another in the long line of bullsh*t designed to ‘convince’ the ignorant that Putin is pure evil.

I call this an analysis based on real world observations and events and simple common sense ................ :roll:

There is a pattern of sensational but untrue reports that lead to public acceptance of US and Western military intervention in countries around the world

‘Clear evidence’ that us retired engineers have a more logical and inquiring mind than most? :roll: :roll: :roll:

A different firsthand experience by a free lance journalist of what the opinion is of the Syrian people over what is and has been happening to them …. she says it as it is!

A markedly different impression than that presented in the Western Media, coalition Leaders and by the US coalition spokes persons. Of course the only way it is possible for us to be able to read the other side of the story is through independent news web sites.

Eva Bartlett is a freelance journalist and rights activist with extensive experience in the Gaza Strip, where she lived a cumulative three years (from late 2008 to early 2013), arriving by boat as a part of the Free Gaza missions. She documented the 2008/9 and 2012 Israeli war crimes and attacks on Gaza while riding in ambulances and reporting from hospitals. Eva accompanied Palestinian fishers and farmers as they came under intensive fire from the Israeli army. She has been to Syria four times since April 2014 and works to convey the voices of a people suffering under the foreign war on Syria.
Most Syrians Support Assad, Reject Phony Foreign ‘Revolution’ - By Eva Bartlett

In addition to hearing the tragic stories of Syrians’ suffering these past five years, I’ve also been party to celebrations, and very moving Easter and Christmas services and music. I’ve been invited into the homes of Syrians and showered with hospitality, and above all, seen the culture, love and resilience that makes Syrians proud of their country and people.

Wherever I’ve gone in Syria (as well as many months in various parts of Lebanon, where I’ve met Syrians from all over Syria) I’ve seen wide evidence of broad support for President al-Assad. The pride I’ve seen in a majority of Syrians in their President surfaces in the posters in homes and shops, in patriotic songs and Syrian flags at celebrations and in discussions with average Syrians of all faiths. Most Syrians request that I tell exactly what I have seen and to transmit the message that it is for Syrians to decide their future, that they support their president and army and that the only way to stop the bloodshed is for Western and Gulf nations to stop sending terrorists to Syria, for Turkey to stop warring on Syria, for the West to stop their nonsense talk about “freedom” and “democracy” and leave Syrians to decide their own future.To quote a Syrian I met in Lebanon in April 2015:

“We want the Syrian state to return to how it was and most importantly, President Assad will stay. We love Bashar al-Assad very much. Syria was wonderful, the state supported us in many ways (free education & health care, food and oil subsidies…) Syria had security. Our country will win and return to how it was, and better. Souria samideen… Syria remains steadfast.”
