And In Other “ProgreSSive” News

Back from the VA.

WTF is this? Bring back memories?

Days after reports that Damascus was on high alert due to increased U.S. troop levels on the Jordanian border and an apparent preparation for an invasion from the south and southeast, the United States and Britain have indeed pushed into Syria from the very location earlier reports suggested would be used.

U.S., British Forces Enter Southern Syria Alongside Terrorists

Meanwhile, the American left remains convinced that their priority should remain resisting an alleged covert alliance between Russia and the Trump administration of which no evidence actually exists. They have made this a priority at the expense of exposing and resisting a documented and longstanding alliance between the US and Saudi Arabia that has endured for decades.

Trump’s Trip to Riyadh Offers Left and Right Common Ground

As long as HTS is not designated as terrorist group the CIA, and anyone else, can supply it with weapons and money without using any “Free Syrian Army” cut-outs in-between. The cut-out scheme was used and had well worked when many groups like the Zenki Brigade, then hailed as liberating heroes, delivered the CIA supplies as tribute to Jabhat al-Nusra and ISIS or fought battles on their side. But the number of FSA groups has dwindled.

State Department: Renamed Al-Qaeda Not A Terrorist Organization – Can Receive CIA Supplies

Christians are leaving the Middle East in record numbers, driven out by terrorism by the Islamic State and laws in countries the U.S. considers allies.

The exodus is raising alarm!

And yet HTS has not been designated in the U.S. as a terrorist group. Canada, which usually follows the U.S. listing closely, has also not listed the group.

We are still studying the issue carefully

Ruh-Roh! If it ain’t Sarin Gas… It’s crematoriums!

The department released commercial satellite photographs showing what it said is a building in the prison complex that has been modified to support the crematorium. That said, the department conceded that photographs taken over the course of several years, beginning in 2013, do not definitely prove the building is a crematorium, but they show construction consistent with such use. One photograph taken in January 2015 shows one area of the building’s roof cleared of snow due to melt.

Got that firmly implanted into your gullible cranial space?

Once again confirming that there is no such thing as a “moderate” Syrian rebel (although there certainly is for State Department funding and arming purposes), on Friday, two prominent ISIS commanders have left the ranks of the calliphate to join forces with the Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters, i.e., “moderate rebels” on the provincial border between Homs and Deir Ezzor, al Masdar news reported.

ISIS commanders decide they want to be ‘moderate’ rebels again

Earlier this month, US officials said the US was seeking to reach “billions” of dollars in arms sales to Saudi Arabia as part of Trump’s visit to Riyadh. With a week left before the visit, officials now say the White House is very close to the deal, and that it will amount to over $100 billion in sales.

Good for the economy!

Should I go on? I will. Later.
