...more on this war which continues, despite having been "won" in the minds of some, not Syrian.

Slowly, slowly the reality of events in Syria begins to come out into the light. Events that were absolutely and without doubt confirmed as proven beyond doubt now turn out to likely to have been falsified by The OPCW to suit the US in their war against Assad and the Syrian people. A video and transcript of an interview with MIT professor Ted Postol by Sharmini Peries of The Real News Network coming from Baltimore.

"Prof Ted Postol analyzed those new documents that were leaked and compared them with the official reports issued, and discovered that they contradicted the official report and that there is strong evidence to suggest that the attack was in fact staged. So we have with us today Ted Postol, who is professor of science technology and national security policy at MIT."

Choice video of the interview of the transcript ..................

...with Iran and the USA distracted, Russia is left alone in Syria keeping the peace so to speak.

The crisis in Idlib looms.

The west knows how to start wars, Russia knows how to end them.

Turkey stabs everyone in the back and changes sides often.

...indeed if i was a Kurd, and Syrian, i would be even more apprehensive at the moment.

...although it crossed my mind, how Russia is allied with Turkey, and how that is going, in Syria; there are a lots of question marks. Turkey in that regard is even less secure than i had thought. In effect, Russia is a welcome ally in Syria, Assad sees Iran in a friendly light as well, Turkey now depends on Russia in Idlib to keep Syria from obliterating, his presence there, and, his allies. He has reason to fear a refugee storm crossing his border, all the indications are there, that this may happen, without Russia, or in an untimely fashion perhaps.

...i feel that Cyprus, with his ambitions over this Sea, will dovetail with his actions in Syria, to add stress, to his unceasing maximalist demands; he may have confidence in Putin's similar desire to disrupt the existing balance of power, and that he can see an advantage for his own State. On the other hand, Erdogan may go too far. Putin may not need a war in the E. Med. as much as he does, Syria being enough. He may find himself alone, in a state where the Western word is on the brink of War, with him. Whether the Bosporus is a gate wide open to Putin, or not, it will not go unnoticed, the cost of which would be astronomically high, in lives no doubt and capital, lost. And while there remains the possibility of unity in Cyprus, of the rest of the world, with Cypriots, as is the present case, (now for decades, and with the E. Med Energy Forum a fact), Erdogan may pay deeply, if it is in Cyprus, the USA and Russia agree.

...now the earth gives up the bodies.

As many as 800 people could be buried in the grave outside ISIS' former Syria capital, an official said

Apparently, Britain and France are going to send ground forces to Syria. And the US is going to be picking up the bill for it.

They will go on the back of a US withdrawal to help the Kurds.

Germany has declined to send troops due to a “well known” policy.

What does all this mean? Is this code for, we can’t partake in the partition of turkey to create Kurdistan because we have too many Turks in Germany and we don’t want to be seen as involved.
