I feel honored to share my birthday today with legendary Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh who fearlessly challenged Obama's Red Line in Syria on the #Ghouta chemical attack in 2013. He exposed US weapons going to jihadi's in Syria and Libya. A true hero.
The New York Times and several corporate media outlets now refuse to publish Hersh for his courageous work in helping preventing US escalation in Syria. Bookmark this historical piece of gold by Seymour Hersh: the Red Line & the Rat Line.…
We had the honor of interviewing Seymour Hersh at @MintPressNews on his reporting in regards to the chemical attack in Ghouta, Syira alongside an MIT chemical weapons researcher and former UN weapons inspector & even Elliot Higgens from @bellingcat.…

#Kiev ne sera pas attaquée. #Kharkiv ne sera pas attaquée. Elles seront encerclées. Et c'est là la stratégie la plus efficace militairement mais aussi la pire pour les civils. La création de poches fut systématisée en #Syrie (1).
L'armée #russe n'a pas les moyens d'une guerre urbaine. En réalité, aucune armée conventionnelle n'a les moyens d'une guerre urbaine. La #Russie a d'ailleurs toujours conseillé #Assad de ne jamais engager de batailles urbaines avec ses forces. Toute armée y perd beaucoup (2).
En #Ukraine, le chef des opérations est à nouveau le général Sergueï Shoïgou. Or, c'est aussi le maître d'œuvre en chef de l'opération sinistre et terrible que mena la #Russie en #Syrie. Prenant sciemment le temps d'écraser toute zone non radicale d'opposition au régime (3).

#August21201, the day Western leaders, mostly @BarackObama, decided to abandon their eminent responsibilities and historical consciousness.
Everything that followed logically stems from this assumed will not to act—yes, a deliberate will.
Intervening would not only have saved hundreds of thousands of lives, but would have also stopped the victories of the revisionist powers.
We decided, yes decided, to lose, which means that we decided to let the #crimesagainsthumanity continue until today—they are—, ...
but also to allow the revisionist powers to set the agenda.
There's a continuity in #Syria between the #Ghouta, #Aleppo, #Homs, #Idlib..., but also with the failure of our intelligence and will in #Georgia, #Ukraine, #Belarus, #HongKong & #Afghanistan.

I repeat it once again as repetition can be useful:

Opposing the Turkish invasion for several reasons:
The opposition, which is fighting alongside Turkey, left the Assad regime and Iran, and turned to carry out the agenda of some countries under the name of fighting YPG, PKK etc
This matter is between Turkey and these factions, and must not be at the expense of civilians in Syria, especially in our regions.
The issue of the repatriation and settlement of refugees through military battles and by force is not a guarantee and cannot be achieved.

The #Assad regime is gradually regaining a legitimacy, that it has been looking for for years,

[1] A thread on the current situation in #İdlib and northern #Hama. The amount of human suffering caused by forced displacement and deliberate targeting of civilians, healthcare facilities, and water resources is, even in the Syrian context, an extreme beyond the extremes.
[2] Almost 600 K were displaced over the last 3 months. This is the biggest and most acute displacement since 2011. to put it into context, this is more than 5 doubles the displacement during last year offensive on #daraa , #Ghouta and the whole southern region.
[3]the majority people currently being displaced already had been displaced multiple times from other parts of #Syria. Those refused the option of returning to GOS areas before and still do, due to concerns on their safety, those need a final destination, not temporary shelter.

My take on the #SAA's #Idleb offensive for the @MiddleEastInst , It is set to be Syria's fiercest battle thus far and a prolonged, violent, and ultimately costly campaign…
@MiddleEastInst 1. The aims of the #Idleb offensive are pretty clear so far. Firstly - retaking the #Damascus-Aleppo highway.
Secondly - retaking #Idlib city, the provincial capital held by opp since 2015.
@MiddleEastInst 2. The town of Kafr Nabudah is now the epicenter of a battle that may decide the early outcome of the offensive, town has changed hands several times, imperative for #SAA to keep it if campaign is to be successful

With 2018 in it's last moments, a new stage of the Syrian war have started & the end of the war is aproaching as time passes. 2018 has been another important year with many political & military developments: (1)
#AbuDhuhur Op (26/12/2017 - 9/2/2018) : as a continuation of the operation (started on October 2017) #SAA began huge offensive from many axis against Rebels & #ISIS in #Hama, #Aleppo & #Idlib provinces. The result of operation was the liberation of 1/3 of "Greater #Idlib" (2)
With W. shore of #Euphrates river secured by #SAA on December 2017, #SDF continued securing the E. one against #ISIS . Between 3/1/2018-22/2/2018 troops secured entire Shu'aytat region. However, a new development N.W. #Syria will provoke the delay of #CizireStorm some months: (3)

This is a thread revisiting the horrific false flag chemical attack on Ghouta in August 2013

Leaked documents have shown that Obama's administration supported a plan for "rebels" in Syria to launch a chemical attack which would be blamed on the Assad govt…

Turkish security forces found a 2kg cylinder containing sarin gas after searching the homes of Syrian Nusra Front "rebels" in Turkey…
#Ghouta #FalseFlag #Syria
Two months before the 2013 Ghouta chemical attack an FSA general blackmails "the international community", saying that unless "rebels" are provided with weapons/ammo within one month, FSA will reveal all they know about the use of chemical weapons in Syria

Fascinating & damning deep-dive into the mess that followed #Assad’s Sarin attack in E. #Ghouta in August '13.

@BarackObama’s “cold feet” & distance, #Putin’s political “games” & @Ed_Miliband being “actively unhelpful.”

= Delays guaranteed no action.…
@BarackObama @Ed_Miliband #pt: Exasperated at how distant #Obama had seemed & how difficult it was to connect with him by phone, the UK’s PM #Cameron said:

- "The next time I ask to talk to the president about chemical weapons attacks, tell me to turn over on my sun lounger and go to sleep.” #Syria
@BarackObama @Ed_Miliband #pt: After briefly expressing support for UK military action in #Syria, @Ed_Miliband's turn to party politics to slow/prevent action left PM #Cameron’s office furious, to say the least:

- “No 10 & the Foreign Office think Ed Miliband is a f****** c*** & a copper-bottomed s***.”

Preparations appear to be underway for a pro-#Assad offensive on #Idlib.

12hrs of on/off air & artillery strikes vs. southeastern & western #Idlib & northern #Hama - see marks on map (original by @ETANA_Syria + my additions).

+ multiple large pro-regime convoys moving north.
@ETANA_Syria #pt: If/when any major military campaign gets underway, expect the #Assad regime (+ #Russia & #Iran-backed militias) to focus on these 2 fronts:

1) West #Idlib (Jisr al-Shughour)
2) N. #Hama/#SE #Idlib (Latamineh, Khan Sheikhoun, Kafrazita)

-> a gradual push ‘inland’ & north.
@ETANA_Syria Very good by @theIRC’s @DMiliband:

- The West must “re-assert” itself & protect civilians in NW #Syria & as a backstop, safe-routes should be opened for civilians to flee into #Turkey.

- UNSC must demand full access to S #Syria; for aid, monitoring etc.…

How to select the media we use to be informed?
Be very careful about Fake News, which is nothing more than propaganda & give preference to independent media, so that you can analyze important issues based on facts and evidence.

Le problème de @LeMediaTV et @Reporterre n'est pas un problème de journalisme mais un problème de racisme. Le fait qu'ils aient relayé une fausse rumeur émanant des victimes de la répression policière est plutôt sain pour la vie militante
Et il faut pas se leurrer le mort en manif a priori il est parfaitement crédible. Le problème encore une fois n'est pas que @LeMediaTV ou @Reporterre soient des organes militants et refusent de se soumettre aux logiques et au fonctionnement des journalistes
Le problème est d'abord que cette dimension n'est jamais admise. "Nous on est un média alternatif qui va faire différent de ce que font les médias en étant engagé pour des idées au lieu d'être dans des logiques marchandes" ouais t'es un machin militant quoi où est le prob?

This sounds like the US is planning to strike #Syria and Trump will remain in the US to closely monitor responses by #Russia. This is terrible.
BREAKING - British forces are now mobilizing at their bases in #Cyprus for strikes against #Syria. It appears very likely that the US, France and U.K. will strike Syria in the next 24 hours. This is dreadful.
