Former US Congressional staffer, MIT research affiliate, discredits 2013 UN report on Ghouta chemical attack

Do not trust anyone. Assad is not responsible for the abominable chemical gas attacks in Ghouta in 2013 and in Idlib in 2017. War is an abomination. Bombs and missiles are an abomination. The US led coalition has ‘dropped’ more than 73,000 bombs and missiles on Iraq and Syria in the last three years. Gas […]

Not true that Assad gassed his people but millions pay the price in a world of lies

In a world of lies, the ability to discover the truth is outstripped by the capacity to manifest deceit. All wars are an abomination and within these abominations, without fail, there are litanies of lies to further pollute the air, to turn people against people. It is a beastliness that for generations to come will […]

He is of my generation, a year older than […]
