Dear @RobertWrighter:

I have benefited in past from @BloggingHeads, so it is disturbing that the platform was handed over for 90 minutes to an activist pushing misinformation on #Syria, primarily to attack #WhiteHelmets and to deny #ChemicalAttacks.
In 90 minutes, the activist offered almost no reliable information. Instead, he used @BloggingHeads for a series of misrepresentations and sometimes falsehoods.

1. He claims "journalistic malpractice" in BBC Radio 4 documentary #Mayday w/o citing single example.

2. His only "evidence" on #Douma #ChemicalAttack is a misrepresentation of tweets by @DalatRM and an incorrect claim about Robert Fisk.

3. He misrepresents creation of #WhiteHelmets

4. He falsely claims WH "took part in executions".

Clare Daly and Mick Wallace may say they have criticised Assad in Syria, Wallace did after all say in the Dail he is 'far from an exemplary democratic leader'!

They have also done a great deal that acts as a support to the genocidal Assad regime
1. Daly & Wallace organised for known pro Assad propagandist & associate of Assad family Peter Ford to hold a meeting in Dublin. Ford was outed at that meeting as working for Assad by Vincent Brown.
2. Daly & Wallace call for lifting of all EU sanctions ‘against Syria’. Most sanctions are vs named individuals for their role in Assad regime war crimes. Sanctions are only peaceful weapon against these mass murderers (inc Asma al Assad, daughter of Peter Ford’s friend)

@colettebrowne @Hippoclides No, Clare Daly while she may say she criticises Assad has done a great deal to support his regime:

Daly & Wallace organised for known pro Assad propagandist & associate of Assad family Peter Ford to hold meeting in Dublin. He was outed as working for Assad by Vincent Brown.
@colettebrowne @Hippoclides Daly met with key regime figure Fares Shehabi, EU sanctioned for support of Assad regime, war profiteer & gangster, provided propaganda photo op for regime & in Dail expressed admiration for Shehabi & 'challenged' Irish govt to invite him to Ireland to inform them about Syria
@colettebrowne @Hippoclides Here is Assad henchman & propagandist Shehabi threatening a journalist's life, calling for 7 yr old child to be killed, joking about Regime torture of children in Deraa by pulling out their fingernails, calling for an act of genocide. Fine man indeed to praise in Irish parliament

New thread on interesting SAA & Republican Guard facts/anecdotes I’m finding for an upcoming report. Mostly stuff from earlier in the war.
Video shows #Chechen foreign fighters in Ballermoun, Aleppo on March 17, 2014

On 3/21 rebels here killed Maj General Samea Abbas, head of the 102nd Regiment RG. On 3/25 they killed Brig General Qasi Mohammad, commander of the 415th Battalion of the 102nd.
Seems the 415th Battalion was destroyed in this battle as I can’t find any credible references to it after Qasi’s death. 102nd remained in #Aleppo until late 2017 (when deployment reports end).

Humanitarian Wars for democracy and freedom are false and lying - 13

The so-called "moderate rebels"

What was the UN created for?
What was the United Nations charter created for?
What were human rights associations created for?
What was the International Criminal Court created for?

Enough of double standars and hypocrisy. Enough is enough.

U.S. National Security Advisor, H.R. McMaster:

- If we are to follow our promise, ‘Never Again,’ we must not just remember, we must act…

Unfortunately today, in #Syria, we are faced with some of the worst atrocities known to man committed by the #Assad regime… and #ISIS.
H.R. McMaster, talking #Syria at @HolocaustMuseum:

The U.S. is declassifying intelligence that exposes #Assad’s terrible crimes… including last year, when we released satellite imagery that appeared to show a crematorium, located in a regime prison outside #Damascus.
H.R. McMaster, talking #Syria at @HolocaustMuseum:

Unfortunately, many of our attempts to protect civilians… were impeded by #Assad, #Iran & #Russia.

Since 2012, #Tehran has provided more than $16bn to the regime… and transported foreign Shia militias & weapons to Syria.

Was in #EastGhouta today, 25 meters from a battlefront btwn Shifouniyeh & Misraba, areas recently liberated from militants. Western journalists flock to humanitarian corridor in north, but not a single one visited this makeshift chemical lab discovered by the SAA yesterday.
With the US threatening direct attacks on #Syria because of alleged chemical weapons use, and the Russians & Syrians claiming militants are using CWs to provoke a US would think western journalists would be all over this terrorist-run lab - even if to debunk it.
I couldn't even hazard a guess at what was cooking in this terrorist-run lab in #EastGhouta. This stuff needs to be tested by independent experts, but the int'l community isn't interested. You'd think they'd want a look before Trump starts a war over fake WMDs.

Insomniac, glum and dejected @BBCNews contacts in #EastGhouta:
'situation beyond critical. Eastern front has collapsed. #SAA & Iraqi militias are near Ash' ari & about to take over Beit Nayem.
Jaysh Al-Islam retreated into population centres. Road to #Hammouriyeh exposed.'
#Misraba rebels in #Eastern_Ghouta are now in talks with regime forces to surrender the town and withdraw. In return, it would be spared. Deal is expected 2 go through of nothing changes.
This would clearly road for regime forces towards #Harasta, effectively cutting #Ghouta in 2
The town of #Misraba in #Eastern_Ghouta is currently being evacuated. Most people have refused to stay behind when regime takes over.
Negotiations are led by Muhieddine Manfoush, #Ghouta's multi-millionaire profiteer merchant and Misraba native.
