On more than one occasion of late, the US has hurled accusations against Syrian President Assad for the use of chemical weapons against his own people. Analyses of these gas attacks have raised profound questions about the genesis of the attacks as well as questions as to why the US is so very eager to pin these on Assad – eager enough, apparently, to ignore substantial evidence pointing to other perpetrators.
Now, evidence has come to light that the US may be deploying targeted chemical weapons against her own citizens.
In the wake of the recent report that the US was filing false and misleading reports to the UN 1540 (WMD) Committee, this reporter obtained surveillance videos from a political target in Los Angeles, California. The individual providing the videos is an attorney and was also interned in a US detention camp during WWII as a Japanese American. In the past several years, she incurred a number of legal difficulties during her mother’s adult guardianship proceedings. (Her mother was also a former US detainee.) She was falsely arrested (and let go without being charged), fired from her job as an attorney with the State of California and also experienced other legal challenges, such as inexplicable restraining orders. These restraining orders are used regularly against family members who try to protect their loved ones from the ravages of guardianship.

The corporate media is pushing the agenda of pushing race wars in the US. They are pushing very hard just like they pushed the Russian collusion, which turned out to be fake. Lavrov states that US should back off with making threats to Venezuela. US and Japan hold drills near North Korea. Germany is now siding with China and Russia in regards to North Korea. Syrian forces pushing very hard in Syria and they are pushing through IS. As the terrorists are pushed out of Syria 600,000 refugees are returning home to Syria.
My latest trip to Syria was spent in Aleppo and Damascus. During my time in East Aleppo I was struck by the hive of activity, pockets of industry, rebuilding the stricken neighborhoods, stone by stone. Despite lack of electricity and water, in each street and alleyway, the sound of welders and the beat of hammers, rang out.
The sparks from a trio of welders spilled onto the pavement where we sat and drank coffee with residents, returning to their communities that had been so fractured by the almost 5 year occupation of these districts of East Aleppo, by Nusra Front-led extremist brigades.
In Jaramanah, Damascus we met with many internally displaced people. The estimated 6.4 million IDPs in Syria have almost invariably, fled to Syrian government controlled areas for refuge from the US Coalition extremist factions who have driven them from their hometowns and villages across Syria.
This area had historically been Druze and Christian populated. Now it has been crowded with Syrians from all walks of life, backgrounds and regions. All spoke to me of their hardship under the US Coalition armed & funded extremist & terrorist factions. Many had been driven from their homes by the armed mercenary forces, suffering hideous wounds in the process.

Charlottesville is a staged event, this event was setup to divide and conquer the people, this is the same tactic the elite use in other nations. Russian bank has been disconnected from the SWIFT payment system. The elite want to invade Venezuela, but by pushing the agenda they are bringing the South American countries closer together. South Korean President tells the world that they are the only ones that can declare war with the North. Kim Jong Un decides not to bomb Guam. Taliban tells Trump to get out of their country. The people in Syria, their message is the same, they want peace and they want to go home. They said they had a peaceful life before the war.

This is a potentially incredible breakthrough in the painful 7 year-long Syrian conflict.
As 21WIRE has pointed out previous, aside from Turkey’s key part in facilitating the creation and supply of anti-Syrian terrorist enclaves over the last 7 years, it has also played the central role in the dismantling of Syria’s manufacturing sector centered around the now devastated industrial hub of Aleppo.
That’s what makes this latest news almost unbelievable.
Since 2011, the leadership in Ankara has committed much of its southern territory, a good portion of financial and military resources, as well as nearly all of its diplomatic credibility… for one goal: to destabilize its neighbor and achieve regime change in Damascus.
Perhaps its renewed dialogue and a lucrative Southstream energy partnership with Russia, along with the relative success so far in the Astana Peace Process – and Washington’s disruptive military and financial backing of a prime Turkish arch-enemy, the Kurdish militia in northern Syria, has made Turkish President Erdogan and his inner circle realize that it’s time to reverse course on a 7 year failure, and immeasurable social, civil and economic destruction of their southern neighbor.

It’s no longer any secret that the US have planned and orchestrated ‘regime change’ in dozens of developing countries over the last century.
Washington’s primary tool is the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), which has ousted democratically elected governments like Iran (1953), Guatemala (1954), Chile (1973), Nicaragua (1982), Haiti (2006), Honduras (2009), Libya (2011), Ukraine (2014) and still working on Syria (2011-present), to name only a few.
Next is Venezuela.
So why is this level of ‘meddling’ justified by the US media and most of its public?
This month sees some significant anniversaries in the struggle against old-style colonialism. The trouble is that colonialism didn’t go away after countries in the developing world formally achieved their independence from Europe’s ‘Great Powers.’
It was replaced by a new form which proved to be more destructive and immeasurably more dishonest than what went before.
At least the British Empire – which at its peak covered almost a quarter of the world’s land surface, acknowledged it was an Empire.
Today’s more shadowy Empire of Globalized Monopoly Finance-Capital does no such thing. Entire countries, such as Yugoslavia, Libya, and Iraq, are destroyed for not toeing the line, while those which continue to defy the neocon/neoliberal elites, such as Venezuela, are under a state of permanent siege.

An international war crimes prosecutor has resigned from her position on the U. N.’s Investigative Panel into human rights abuses in Syria over her frustration regarding the perceived impotence of the commission and the lack of ability to prosecute war criminals. Essentially, Carla Del Ponte is resigning because she and her panel have not been able to overcome Russian objections to framing Bashar al-Assad for crimes committed by America’s terrorists.
While admitting that Western-backed terrorists are made up ‘mostly’ of extremists and that they have been guilty of war crimes, Del Ponte also peddled the disproven narrative that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons and that it is engaged in ‘terrible crimes against humanity.’
In her remarks announcing her resignation, Del Ponte, who is 70 years old, also admitted her own bias against the Syrian government since the beginning of the crisis.

As we pulled into the gates of the REAL Syria Civil Defence in Damascus, 200 meters from the Ein Tarma frontlines in the eastern suburbs of Damascus, the battle raged.
After the liberation of Qaboun, Ein Tarma and Jobar remain, eerie lunar landscapes, scarred, looming buildings, crumbling into the ground that has been pounded by Syrian Arab Army (SAA) bombardments. As in East Aleppo, the various NATO member state and Gulf state brigades of extremists, led by Nusra Front go to ground, inhabiting the network of tunnels that run beneath Jobar and Ein Tarma and stretch as far as the Old City of Damascus. This fact alone, makes the cleansing of these areas particularly precarious. Any heavy duty bombing risks shock waves passing through the tunnels and damaging structures in the historic Old City of Damascus. A fact, explained to me by a volunteer ‘civilian’ solider in the Syrian Army.
Contrary to the western media propaganda, the REAL Syria Civil Defence is on the frontlines in Damascus and across Syria. Western media and the Al Qaeda affiliated White Helmets claim that the RSCD are safely tucked away in Syrian Government held areas. However, these headquarters are in the midst of the battles for the liberation of Ein Tarma and Jobar.

This report is still unconfirmed, but based on the current strategic situation in Syria, this apparent behind closed doors agreement would be a practical decision.
Ever since ISIS became prominent in northeastern Syria in 2014, the United States gradually moved in to back the Kurdish defense forces and militias, including the YPG and a new Kurdish fighting group set up by Pentagon called the ‘Syria Democratic Forces’ (SDF). The US and Israeli objective appears to have been to allow ISIS to gradually depopulate the area, and then once ISIS could be moved out of their stronghold in Raqqa, then Washington would use their Kurdish proxies to occupy strategic towns and cities – including the area around Raqqa. This appears to have been very poor planning by the Pentagon, as it not only ignores the demographics of the area (Arab majority), but it’s also ignorant of the fact that not all Kurds desire an independent state or Rojava canton. The US deep state’s masterplan for a federalized partition of Syria also appears to have ignored another obvious factor – that Syria was not going to hand over any of its territory in a US-led course of action.

Now that ISIS – the perpetual scapegoat for US intervention in the Syrian proxy war – is no longer viable, with the Qatar, Saudi-funded and Pentagon-equipped terrorist organization scattered and on the run, and there is no longer an imperative to remove Assad from power as the Qatar natgas pipeline to Europe is mothballed indefinitely while Russia and Iran are the de facto undisputed rulers of Syria, it is time to focus popular anger against ISIS elsewhere… like in the Philippines. And not wasting any time, NBC reports that the Pentagon is considering a plan allowing the U. S. military to conduct airstrikes on ISIS in the Philippines.
Unlike in Syria where the US arrived (and is now on its way out) to wage war against the Assad regime ISIS uninvited, the authority to strike ISIS targets as part of collective self-defense could be granted as part of an official military operation that may be named as early as Tuesday, said the anonymous officials who spoke to NBC. The strikes would likely be conducted by armed drones.

The Pentagon has just confirmed deployment of US Special Forces in Lebanon to support the Lebanese Army in an upcoming coordinated military campaign aimed to clean out an ISIS border pocket in the country’s northwest. Regional media outlets are describing the coming major new offensive as “imminent”. But awkwardly for the US, the fight will necessitate some level of coordination with Hezbollah, which the US considers a terrorist organization.
On July 21st the Lebanese Army in cooperation with Hezbollah intensified operations to root out ISIS from the environs of the Sunni border town of Arsal, while at the same time the Syrian Army attacked from the Syrian side in the western Qalaman mountains. The region’s mountainous terrain and dozen or more refugee camps has made it an ideal place for ISIS and other jihadists to embed themselves throughout much of the Syrian war.
The first major ISIS assault on Arsal came in 2014, which resulted in significant Lebanese troop casualties and kidnappings. Since then the Lebanese Army and Hezbollah have effectively contained ISIS and allied jihadist groups to a barren border zone which includes refugee camps. Syrian refugee presence in and around Arsal numbers in the tens of thousands – many of which have scrambled to flee the area over the past weeks.

Last month, UN war crimes investigators described the situation in Raqqa, Syria resulting from US airstrikes as a ‘staggering loss of civilian life.’ This from the US-led Coalition’s Operation Inherent Resolve – which the US has been trying to ‘resolve’ (rather unsuccessfully) since 2014.
US officials are now claiming that they have only killed around 600 civilians during its ‘anti-ISIS’ operations in Iraq and Syria, but that does not square with data collected by independent groups which brings the total to around 4,354 civilians (conservatively) who have been killed as a result of US-led coalition bombing campaigns since June 2014.

Toward the end of last year, leaked audio of then-Secretary of State John Kerry went viral across the independent media because it appeared to confirm that the U. S. was watching ISIS and allowing the group to grow in order to exert pressure on the Syrian government, a long-time adversary of the Obama administration.
However, more stunning than this apparent admission was the fact that Kerry confirmed what Anti-Media has been warning about for some time now regarding the legality of America’s Syrian operation. In the leaked audio, speaking to Syrian opposition members at a meeting that took place at the Dutch mission to the United Nations, Kerry stated:
‘The problem is that the Russians don’t care about international law, but we do. And we don’t have the basis – our lawyers tell us – unless we have the U. N. Security Council Resolution, which the Russians can veto, and the Chinese, or unless we are under attack from the folks there, or unless we are invited in. Russia is invited in by the legitimate regime – well it’s illegitimate in our mind – but by the regime. And so they were invited in and we are not invited in. We’re flying in airspace there where they can turn on the air defenses and we would have a very different scene. The only reason they are letting us fly is because we are going after ISIL. If we were going after Assad, those air defenses, we would have to take out all the air defenses, and we don’t have the legal justification, frankly, unless we stretch it way beyond the law.’ [emphasis added]

When President Trump won the election, there was hope that he would be able to finally help the US government make peace with the Russians, and stave off the possibility of another world war. He has undoubtedly made some progress in that regard, by ending the CIA’s program to arm the rebels in Syria. And it’s safe to assume that if Hillary had won the election, that there would be absolutely no chance for our nations could reconcile with each other.
Overall however, the Trump administration hasn’t made much progress with the Russians. With every step taken towards peace we’ve fallen two steps back, as our government’s relationship with Russia continues to crumble. The deterioration of this relationship reached a new low recently when congress approved legislation that issues new sanctions against Russia, and prevents Trump from easing those sanctions. Trump signed the bill anyway, knowing that it passed with so many votes that if he had vetoed it, Congress could have immediately overridden his decision.

Sales volume crashes, prices plunge from April peak.
In the Greater Toronto Area, sales of homes of all types in July plunged 40.4% compared to July last year to 5,921 transactions. By type:
Detached houses -47.4% Semi-detached houses -38.6% Townhouses -36.5%: Condos -30.5%. At the same time, as sales volume was plunging and potential buyers were staying away in droves, the number of new listings rose 5.1%, according to the Toronto Real Estate Board. This left total active listings 65% above the level a year ago.
‘Clearly, the year-over-year decline we experienced in July had more to do with psychology, with would-be home buyers on the sidelines waiting to see how market conditions evolve,’ said TREB President Tim Syrianos. Alas ‘psychology’ is precisely what causes house price bubbles – not fundamentals, such as 2.3% annual wage increases. And when that ‘psychology’ turns, it pricks those bubbles.

While the world’s eyes are focused on Syria, Russia, Ukraine, and North Korea; there is another – much more tense – fight between two nuclear powers that is getting far too little attention. The world’s two most populous nations, China and India, have been engaged in a border dispute for decades but in recent months it has flared once again with a Chinese Ministry of Defense official now warning explicitly that Indian troops must leave the contested Doklam area if they do not want war.
The latest standoff started more than a month ago after Chinese troops started building a road on a remote plateau, which is disputed by China and Bhutan. Indian troops countered by moving to the flashpoint zone to halt the work, with China accusing them of violating its territorial sovereignty and calling for their immediate withdrawal.

The corporate media is now blaming Trump for the rise of Obamacare premiums, this is completely false because the premiums have been rising the last couple of years. Ben Rhodes is now a person of interest in regard to unmasking. Trump signs the Russian sanctions pushing Russia and Europe closer together. US launches an ICBM. China officially opens their military base in Djibouti . Trump and Tillerson are now playing good cop bad cop. Tillerson is looking to have diplomatic relations with NK, Iran and Russia. Syrian forces are pushing the paid mercenaries out of Syria, more terrorists have switched to the government side.
The strategy that the American deep state intends to employ to sabotage once and for all the possibilities of a rapprochement between the United States and Russia has been revealed.
After months of debate over the bad state of relations between the United States and Russia, the G20 offered the stage for the two leaders to meet and start discussing the various problems facing the two countries. In the days following the summit in Hamburg, the Kremlin and the White House revealed that Putin and Trump met three times in bilateral talks to discuss how to improve relations between the two nations. The ceasefire reached in southern Syria is therefore intended as the first step in a new direction set for Washington and Moscow.
As was easy to foresee, the deep state did not like this prospect of cooperation, immediately unleashing the mainstream media on Trump, because repeated meetings with Putin at the G20 were apparently suggestive of some sort of collusion, as if the leaders of two nuclear powers cannot even speak with each other. Obviously uncomfortable with these meetings, the sabotaging of relations between Russia and the US has taken a new turn. The previous ceasefire in Syria, reached by Kerry and Lavrov during the previous administration a year ago, was sabotaged by the US Air Force’s bombing of Syrian troops at Deir ez-Zor, which killed and injured more than a hundred Syrian soldiers. This served to favor Daesh’s assault on government positions, hinting at some sort of cooperation between Washington and the terrorists. Moscow immediately interrupted any military-to-military communication with Washington, which included the ceasefire reached between Lavrov and Kerry.

The corporate media is going all out with as much propaganda as they can muster to convince the public its time to get rid of Trump. Imran Awan might have been selling secrets to other countries. The Judiciary committee is pushing to have Mueller removed from the special investigator position. Maduro is now going after his opposition. Trump is thinking about recalling the troops from Afghanistan. North Korea’s missile test was not successful it broke apart before it hit the water. Qatar and Turkey are having drills in the Persian Gulf. Russia has more jet fighters in Syria . Trump decided to stop funding the moderate rebels when he saw these terrorists perform a horrible act.
