East Ghouta – No escape.

Jeremy Bowen supports the lies about the ‘siege’.

Reports from the BBC continue to imply Russian and Syrian behaviour is stopping civilians from escaping the East Ghouta region of Syria. The presenters first words, describing the terrorists as rebels, is a blatant falsehood. The militant criminals holed up in East Ghouta have no connection to any civil liberties or freedom, nor are they defending the people that dwell in the area.

In a dull, serious tone, Jeremy Bowen describes a city the size of Manchester, England, comprising of 400,000 people, that is being starved of provisions. The implication is that the government siege is responsible for the hardship on civilians but this very same accusation was levelled at them during the battle for Aleppo. After the terrorists evacuated (under a government sponsored agreement), the terrorists were found to have hidden tons of food and medicine from the civilians and were accused of selling aid to them at extortionate prices.

Bowen voiced over some clips of children being pulled from damaged buildings by the discredited WH’s. Clearly the BBC haven’t seen these very same White Helmets posing with guns on their facebook pages. At the end of the article, Bowen signs off with ‘Jeremy Bowen, BBC news’. He doesn’t admit to being in a nice warm studio using terrorist supplied footage which he merely comments on. This is not uncommon. Virtually all the news journalists are nowhere near the fighting. Beirut, Lebanon is the usual choice but I suspect Bowen was in a UK studio. Without doubt, if they got close enough the lunatics terrorising East Ghouta, they would find out that they aren’t the cuddly rebels they try to portray.

When Aleppo was liberated, the survivors condemned the White Helmets as accomplices to Al Nusra, even situating their headquarters next to each other. Bombings on civilian areas weren’t attended to by the WH’s, only terrorist military incidents. Ghouta has also brought the WH’s onto the televisions screens, using exactly the same dust covered theatrics they used before.

A quarter of a million people were trapped in Aleppo, claimed the Western media but the real amount was in the low tens of thousands. Likewise, there are claims of 400,000 people trapped in East Ghouta, the reality will be a fraction of that number.

The failure of the humanitarian selected safe passageways out of Ghouta is blamed on a poor Russian/Syrian plan. The Western powers want a ceasefire which involves all parties involved. The Russians insist that they will not hold back from attacking internationally recognised terrorist groups, including Al Qaeda and ISIS. Why does the West want to include these barbarians? The real reason the escape routes are failing is because the militants are using snipers to stop the civilians from escaping, which proves that they want to keep them there as hostages in a bid to restrict Syrian assaults on the city.

It really doesn’t require a genius to work out the well used technique that is used over and over again. Demonise the target. Continually accuse them of heinous crimes, without producing an ounce of evidence. Wheel out enemies of the target who have a serious grievance with them and hope to convince the masses of their guilt. None of it has any truthfulness but who cares as long as they remove the victim. Thousands of innocent lives lost in the process doesn’t bother the psychopaths who runs these scams. Neither does it worry their willing accomplices…    the journalists that peddle their lies.

The Ghouta description is a carbon copy of the Aleppo claims. It didn’t stop the terrorists from being defeated there and it shouldn’t be allowed to stop the cleansing of Ghouta now. The conclusion is that the extremists are the only ones who can stop the killing in Ghouta. They cannot be allowed to terrorise the close neighbourhood of Damascus anymore. We wouldn’t allow it, why should the Syrians be expected to?

Why didn’t we hear UN calls for ceasefires when Israel attacked Gaza?

Terrorists need protection but the civilians in Gaza don’t?

The UN would be an incredible force for good, if it weren’t so corrupt. Only enemies of the US are censured, their friends can do as they please. The day to day crimes of Israel on the Palestinians is almost universally ignored. Compare this to the legitimate defence of his country by President Assad while he attempts to stop the daily rocket and missile attacks on Damascus from Ghouta.

Tuesday 20th Feb 2018

9 civilians killed and 49 injured by rockets fired from Ghouta.

Sat 3rd Feb 2018

3 killed and 8 injured by weapons fire from Ghouta.

3rd October 2017

17 killed and countless injured after suicide bomber originating from Ghouta attacked a Damascus police station.

I could continue doing a list all day with attacks on Damascus from Ghouta. What are they expected to do? Allow it to continue indefinitely? Israel flattened 18,000 homes in Gaza for attacks that didn’t kill one single Israeli.

There is another big difference. Terrorists in Eastern Ghouta have been supplied with extremely modern weapons. They have tanks, long range rockets and TOW missiles, the resistance in Gaza have none of these.

During the most recent attack on Gaza, when did the UN appeal for a cessation? Why does the UN react only when it is a legitimate government trying to rid their country of terrorists and yet Israel are given a free reign to slaughter as many Palestinians as they can?

I would welcome any answers to these questions.

Netanyahu compares ISIS to Hamas.

But then visits an ISIS operative being treated in an Israeli field hospital specifically for militants attacking the Syrian Army.

Breaking the silence.

Surprisingly, a BBC interview with a former IDF soldier critical of the Israeli military.

A member of the Israeli anti occupation group ‘Breaking the Silence’, Avner Gvaryahu is interviewed by the selectively critical Stephen Sackur. Gvaryahu is very eloquent in his attack on Israeli policy. Sackur attempts to label him a hypocrite and a traitor but the interviewee remains focused and firm.

To be perfectly honest, I was expecting much worse from Sackur, who in the past has not allowed his guests to express their views without constant interruption and I would urge people to watch this episode of HARDtalk, particularly Israeli citizens.

Gvaryahu correctly states that the current Israeli government have only one aim and that is to maintain their current barbaric control over every aspect in the lives of the Palestinian population.

Is embedded video slowing down your web browsing?

This increasingly irritating nuisance can sometimes bring extremely high specification laptops and computers to their knees.

This fix doesn’t seem to be widely advertised. It’s difficult to tell now that Google (in particular) are selecting which web pages are prioritised using their search engine. Here are easy to follow instructions with images.

Firefox.

…And that’s it, you can close the window and browse without constant interference from resource hungry video clips.

Just a slight warning. The problem with this fix is that it blocks your Youtube videos from  playing. I personally get around this by using different browsers for different tasks. General browsing with Firefox and Chrome if I want to watch Youtube.

An update on this issue.

Initially, Youtube didn’t work but it seems ok now, so there should be no need to use a different browser for watching video clips. I’ll monitor this and update again if needs be. I’ve so far tested this reconfiguration on a couple of Israeli news sites (and these tend to be the worst offenders) and its an improvement. If anyone has any further suggestions, feel free to comment.

 

Syrian air defences down Israeli jet.

BBC reluctant to admit the jet was hit by Syrian defence missiles.

Syrian air defence systems have finally downed an Israeli jet after months of increasing provocation. One of the two Israeli pilots has died from his injuries whilst the other is only slightly injured. This justifiable response could be exactly what Netanyahu was hoping for given the advances made in the domestic investigation into his corruption. Rumours suggest that indictment is imminent. Netanyahu is hoping a war will sidetrack the accusations. Because he is a typical world leader, he won’t care how many people will perish, his only concern is his own survival.

The BBC report is vague. ‘Israeli jet down amid Syrian fire’ is the headline. This leaves open the possibility of a mechanical failure. They wouldn’t want to give Israel’s enemies a coup that would instill confidence in their ability to defeat them. The most innocuous reporting is always used to defend Israeli interests.

US attack on Syrian allies.

Critics of Trump are wondering where his promises of less interference in the Middle East have gone to. Considering his lack of mental capacity, they are long forgotten. Let’s not forget he is a man who had his own reality TV show and interviews with any so called TV personality always reveals just how out of touch they are. Recent rumours imply that he doesn’t read any reports put in front of him, so this allows those who are closest to shape his thinking. That would be his daughter and her husband. The attack on Syrian Army allies this week is an important sub plot that is closely related to the latest Israeli assault.

The Syrian Arab Army have been extremely resilient since the Russians entered the conflict and the action by Israel and the US is designed to send a message to Assad that he will be stretched on at least two fronts if he responds. Not forgetting the illegal actions of Turkey,

The implications of an effective Syrian air defence.

The Israeli destruction of Lebanon in 2006 was the work of the Israeli Air Force. Lebanon was defenceless in the face of repeated aerial attacks. The IAF could do as they pleased without fear of being confronted in the air. This successful Syrian response changes all that. It was an F-16 that was destroyed but the last jet to be hit by Syrian anti aircraft defences was an F-35, the so called stealth bomber. I wonder why those have not been involved in recent incursions? Flawed perhaps? If unopposed in any form of warfare, the Israelis will show no mercy. They regard the deaths of their opponents as insignificant. A big problem for them is the return home in body bags of Israeli personnel.

Was the US attack on Syrian forces earlier this week the green light for Israel?

The Israelis are opportunists. Although they would reject needing US approval, they prefer it. Having Jared Kushner protecting their interests in the White House is a gift. The Orthodox  Jew Kushner hasn’t even attempted to look impartial because Trump is effectively in cloud cuckoo land and doesn’t care what happens to the Palestinians. This most recent attack on Syria is based on claims that an Iranian drone was destroyed in Israeli air space.  There is no evidence to support this but even if it were true, Israel flies over all its neighbours air space at will and the countless complaints by Syria and Lebanon are ignored by the UN.

The latest from the BBC is that the Israeli attacks are the most intense since 1982. They failed to mention that Israeli losses are the worst since 1982 as well.

Just when you thought the Americans had reached the limit of their stupidity………

The shooting down of a Russian jet suggests the US has supplied terrorists with manpads.

If it weren’t the Americans directly, it will have been authorised by them. The worlds passenger jets have just become very real targets with the use of the lethal surface to air portable hand held missile system. The weapon is highly manoeuvrable and subsequently not easy to detect. It’s success rate is extremely high and in the hands of the mentally challenged, easily influenced and backward ISIS freaks, the danger to all aircraft has risen tenfold.

These people aren’t rational nor religious. They have contorted their holy scriptures in such an outlandish way that they no longer resemble the original text. There is no concern for others, no empathy, no respect for human life, particularly the people they conclude are not in line with their drug fuelled ideology.

The US and primarily the Israelis have been itching to give the rabid extremists some of these weapons. Why would they put ALL aircraft at risk? They didn’t. They must still have control of the manpads. They wouldn’t risk their own commercial airlines, not even to remove Assad. It is today rumoured that a neighbouring country has supplied the manpads, suggesting it could be Turkey. If this is the case, it would still be with the Americans approval.

If indeed Turkey are involved, the repercussions could be very damaging. Russia has already shown how it can damage the Turkish economy. Any further sanctions to punish Erdogan wouldn’t be so publicly acknowledged. Putin is in a different league to most leaders around the world, reprisals from him could be devastating for Turkey. Putin hasn’t been deterred by pressure from US allies and is still carrying on with his policy in Syria. The results of this latest terrorist action will create interesting times. If I were a gambling man, my money would be on Putin.
