While the US continues to accuse Russia of striking US-trained rebel areas in Syria, Russia is destroying ISIL HQs and training camps…
It should be noted that the United States spent a whole year bombing the desert instead of hitting terrorist targets in Syria, the head of the Russian parliament’s international affairs committee wrote on Friday.
“[Senator John] McCain accused us of striking US-trained insurgents… However, since they have either run away or joined al-Qaeda, hitting them is nearly impossible,” Alexei Pushkov wrote on his Twitter account.
Earlier on Thursday, Western media reported that Russian airstrikes allegedly hit US-trained Syrian rebels.
But it seems the US forgot that only nine US-trained rebels are actually fighting ISIL, while the rest are “missing” somewhere in the Syrian desert.
This is another awful and completely ridiculous slogan for the politically inept and disempowered: “Speaking truth to power!”
This one is in the same vein as the “voices heard” type of obsequious appeal to the master class. Please don’t say this and correct those who do by gently informing them that, of course, all the evidence points to the simple fact that those in power know EXACTLY what they are doing and they don’t need you to tell them. Simply telling your oppressor and exploiter what bad things they are doing to you is less than worthless when they are fully aware of what they are doing (because they’re doing it) and they’re not going to stop because you point out the obvious. Have some respect for yourself!
A great interview with Chris Hedges where he covers a brief history of the U.S. Empire and the political situation in the U.S. today. He makes an interesting comparison between the U.S. and UK political environments. – PC
