Some of you probably have heard of Eva Bartlett already.

The Canadian independent journalist and human rights activist has been in Syria numerous times in recent years, independently investigating and reporting on the situation in the country.

Last Friday, she was part of a press conference organised by the Syrian mission to the United Nations. Her response to a particular journalist is so perfect that I wanted to make sure I shared the footage in the above clip. (more…)

The hawks in Washington are in full propaganda mode to justify war with Moscow.

Everything is being thrown at Russia now: war crimes accusations in Syria, proposed suspension from the UN Security Council, MH-17, Eastern Ukraine, hacking allegations, covert support for Donald Trump, etc. (more…)

I was trying to actually take a short break from posting for a while; but the sheer level of BS being spewed as international powers desperately seek a renewed premise for military intervention in Syria is just stomach turning.

The BS propaganda game is accelerating more every day. On TV, on the radio, in newspapers, we see coverage of the crisis in Aleppo; now accompanied by dire commentary warning that Aleppo is going to be destroyed by the end of the year – and oh, we must do something! (more…)

It has been a year now to the day since Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-17 was brought down over Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine.
A scheduled international passenger flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, it was allegedly shot down by Russian-backed rebels – this being the story still maintained by the mainstream Western media today. 283 passengers and 15 crew were on board.
