Israeli Warplanes Missile Attack on Syrian Army in Quneitra*

Israeli Warplanes Missile Attack on Syrian Army in Quneitra*

Israeli aviation launched a missile attack on Syrian army’s positions in the province of Quneitra bordering Israeli-controlled Golan Heights, a Syrian military source told Sputnik.

“Enemy warplanes of Israel launched two missiles from the occupied territory [Golan Heights] at 18:45 [local time] on one of the positions of our army. It caused material damage,” the source told Sputnik.

According to the source, the strike was carried out when the Syrian army was repelling terrorists’ attack in Quneitra.

“These actions will not stop the fight of our Armed Forces against terrorist groups which are close to Israel,” the source added.

Earlier, the IDF said that a projectile was launched from the Syrian territory and fell on the Israeli-controlled part of the Golan Heights, causing no injuries. The Israeli military did not specify whether or not the shelling from the Syrian territory was deliberate or there was an accidental overflight of a projectile or mines through a dividing line. The troops have been searching the area.

In November, the IDF said a missile believed to be launched from Syria, hit the Israeli-controlled northern Golan Heights without causing any casualties. The IDF responded with retaliatory fire.

Israel occupied the Golan Heights in the 1967 Six-Day War with Syria and annexed the territory in 1981. The international community has not recognized the Israeli annexation.

Horrific Onslaught on Aramaic Christian Community of Ma’aloula at Hands of Western Backed “Moderate” Terrorists*

Horrific Onslaught on Aramaic Christian Community of Ma’aloula at Hands of Western Backed “Moderate” Terrorists*

By Janice Kortkamp

A dear, humble man with the most beautiful smile sang the Lord’s Prayer for us in Aramaic on Good Friday.

Ma’aloula has been a Christian village since there were such things.

But it was almost gone.

America’s “moderate rebels” of the Free Syrian Army attacked it with a vengeance alongside Al Qaeda…as they always do.

Our “moderates” executed many who would not convert to their fake, twisted, violent, completely intolerant version of “Islam”.

The local men who had formed a militia to protect their homes were able to hold off the terrorists with the help of Hezbollah fighters until they could get almost all of the women and children out via ancient sewer tunnels.

Then U.S. supported “moderate” terrorists ransacked the place, looted and vandalized the homes, businesses, churches, and orphanage.

They stole the priceless, ancient, unique icons and sold them to Israel, Europe, and Gulf countries.

After six months the Syrian armed forces and allies finalized the liberation of Ma’aloula. So many Muslims died defending that Christian village that is held precious by Syrians of all faiths and people groups.

When we visited they were honouring the second anniversary of that liberation.

So much is destroyed but they are rebuilding.

President Assad made the restoration of Ma’aloula a top priority. The Syrian Army protects the people who have moved back. Since I first visited one year ago I can see great progress already in spite of the terrible war in their country.

Its hard for me this morning, to write in such a way as to build bridges with Americans who have been lied to incessantly by our government, war-profiteering media, and NGOs masking themselves as humanitarian organizations while existing only to further political agendas…because I am filled with rage as I write this.

After the lies and horrors of Iraq and Libya are so obvious and so exposed now…why oh why do Americans continue their blind, ignorant and often arrogant support for the U.S. war machine?

Oh, and Happy Easter.

A Native Perspective on War, Terrorism and the MOAB Bomb*

A Native Perspective on War, Terrorism and the MOAB Bomb*

By Mark Charles

“Mother of All Bombs” blast in Afghanistan on Thursday

 

Friday morning the hosts of Fox and Friends celebrated Thursday’s dropping of the MOAB bomb by the United States military against ISIS in Afghanistan. This was the largest non-nuclear bomb ever detonated in combat, and they aired the video of the explosion to the song by Toby Keith, “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue.” One of the hosts commented that the video is in black and white, “But that is what freedom looks like. That’s the red, white and blue.” Geraldo Rivera then added that one of his favourite things in the 16 years he’s been on FOX News is watching bombs drop on bad guys.

Last week, after the U.S. launched a barrage of missiles against Syria in retaliation for chemical weapons Assad utilized against civilians, Brian Williams, speaking on MSNBC said he was tempted to quote the great Leonard Cohen, “I am guided by the beauty of our weapons.” Brian went on to describe the missile launch scene as “beautiful pictures of fearsome armaments.”

Terrorism is evil and needs to be confronted. But when we go beyond confronting terrorism to blatantly celebrating the deaths of terrorists, and praising the beauty of our weapons that destroyed them, we are blurring the lines of humanity. And once those lines are crossed, and we dehumanize our enemy, it is a short and slippery slope to becoming the very thing we claim to be fighting against. Soon, we begin looking for prominent religious leaders and institutions to provide theological cover for our violence, and justification for our actions.

 As a follower of Jesus, who was a tribal man brutally executed by a state working in conjunction with its religious leaders…

As a Navajo man, whose ancestors endured acts of genocide and forced removal by a United States government that was armed with a Doctrine of Discovery, and therefore believed it had a manifest destiny to ethnically cleanse and rule these lands from sea to shining sea…

And, as the grandson of indigenous grandparents, who were taken from their homes and educated in boarding schools run by a government and churches that believed it was their civic and religious duty to “kill the Indian to save the man”…

I humbly offer some words of caution.

May we not celebrate war.

May we not glorify violence.

May we not dehumanize our enemies.

For if we could refuse to dehumanize our enemies, it would make the terribleness of war all the more real. And maybe, just maybe, cause us to engage in it less often.

Trump Wastes over $94mn in Taxpayer’s Money on Ineffective Syrian Airstrikes*

Trump Wastes over $94mn in Taxpayer’s Money on Ineffective Syrian Airstrikes*

By Amando Flavio

President Donald Trump surprised many, including his own supporters, by launching missile strikes against Syria over allegations of use of chemical weapons against civilians by the Syrian government. Trump argues that the strikes were to deter the Syrian regime from using chemical weapons in the ongoing six-year-bloody conflict.

When Trump was not in government, he strongly opposed any military action in Syria by the United States. In 2013, when similar allegations of the Syrian government using chemical weapons emerged, the then Obama administration contemplated on striking the Assad government. Trump called Obama a fool over just the mere thought of intervening in Syria.

During Trump’s political campaign period, he strongly lashed out at the country’s establishment, also known as the Deep State, accusing them of waging needless wars that enrich themselves while the masses suffer. Trump openly questioned why the United States should act as the world’s policeman. He promised to solve domestic problems by creating jobs to lift people from poverty if he won the election.

At his inauguration in Washington D.C. on January 20, he again attacked the establishment, promising to significantly shift the country’s global hegemony agenda to a more domestic-focused one for the benefit of US citizens.

With these promises, many Trump supporters were full of hope that for the first time in many years, they would get their country back from the corrupt Deep State. However, this was never to be. Trump struck Syria with 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles literally days after his administration had said the Syrians will determine who rules over them.

The latest missile strikes against Syria by the Trump administration have prompted criticism over the United States confusion. Not only the confusion, the quick U-turn by the Trump administration to launch the strikes has also cost United States taxpayers millions of dollars. According to the United States Department of Defense’s annual budget, a single Tomahawk missile costs $1.59 million. The deadly weapon is manufactured by Raytheon, a defense company with close links to members of the Deep State.

If you multiply $1.59 million by the 59 missiles fired on Syria, you will be getting around $94 million. This is only the cost of the missiles. It excludes other costs that ensure the launch is successful. One single missile weighs a staggering 1300 kg, measures six metres long and usually carries a 450kg warhead. You can imagine the amount of energy needed to launch 59 of these weapons.

This is the same Trump who had promised to solve domestic problems. There are significant numbers of people in America today who are without a place to call their home. The first thing Trump could do to help these homeless people is to not waste over $94 million on an unproductive venture in Syria.

The Russian Defense Ministry, which has personnel stationed at the Syrian airfield where the missiles targeted, said only 23 of the missiles hit the target. The other 36 missiles took a different course. There are reports that some hit impoverished villages, killing children. This shows the airstrikes were ineffective. It was a pure waste of taxpayer money.

Before he left office, the 34th President of the United States Dwight D. Eisenhower warned the country about the Deep State which controls the Military Industrial Complex (MIC).

However, this warning by Eisenhower has fallen on deaf ears. The MIC influence was so great in successive governments that the country’s defense budget has skyrocketed. In 2011, for example, the United States spent more (in absolute numbers) on its military than the next 13 nations combined. Before Obama left office, it dropped to the next 7 nations combined, with a budget of over half a trillion dollars.

Trump has announced he intends to increase the defense budget this year.  His National Security Advisor Herbert Raymond McMaster has warned him about the diabolical influence of the MIC. Trump has turned his back to the millions of Americans who wanted change. He is not listening to advice, even from his own appointees. Trump is now dinning with the Deep State. The Deep State who opposed Trump’s candidature to the presidency is heaping praises on him for bombing Syria. If Trump continues bombing, the Deep State flourishes.

Israeli Submarine Set-up for Syrian Gas Attacks*

Israeli Submarine Set-up for Syrian Gas Attacks*

By Gordon Duff

“What the story doesn’t tell is that the Israeli submarine with 84 onboard, went down with teams of IDF commandos who had been in Syria placing radio repeaters disguised as rocks. The repeaters were later used to send out messages “in the clear” misattributed to the Syrian Army, “confessions” of the use of Sarin gas. Evidence from these Israeli repeaters was presented to the U.N, after the August 2013 Sarin attack in Ghouta that killed 1000.”

Today we learned that the primary evidence the U.S. has shown its NATO allies on the Syrian gas attack isn’t satellite images, easily exposed as photoshopped.  It is radio intercepts of Syrians screaming out “get me more sarin gas..”

{For today’s parallel account from a chemical warfare expert at MIT, please read: http://www.veteranstoday.com/2017/04/12/busted-white-house-syria-report-obviously-false/}

Well, VT has caught them before and has this this time as well.  Bear with us while we head into the past and weave a yarn of duplicity and criminality, where America becomes the evil empire Reagan warned us about.

Veterans Today broke the story of an Israeli submarine being sunk by Syria on May 22, 2013.  We had learned that Israeli teams had been inside Syria for some time, planting radio repeaters.  Israel figured President Obama would fall for their trick, repeaters in rocks, screaming out:

“Thank goodness those Americans will never catch us Syrians using Sarin gas on our own people for no reason…we are just going to chat away because we are bored and stupid.”

This isn’t a new ploy, not new for Israel and not knew for necon America, and there has never been anyone quite as “neocon” as Trump.  From Veterans Today (and the Washington Post) 2012, the U.S. using phony radio traffic to start a war

In 2007, an American armada, troop ships, aircraft carriers, guided missile cruisers and destroyers sailed into the Persian Gulf.  Their plan was to land Marines on Iranian soil, a plan hatched by Vice President Dick Cheney and White House officials including Karl Rove, Paul Wolfowitz and Richard Clarke. Vice Admiral Kevin Cosgriff

Military command of this invasion, to be done without consultation of congress or the United Nations was left to Vice Admiral Kevin J. Cosgriff and Admiral Will J. Fallon, both career opportunists with extremist political views, willing to do anything for promotion and the curry favor from the powerful criminal figures in U.S. government.

Their “cover story” was to sale a frigate up the Shatt al Arab, a disputed waterway between Iraq and Iran, hoping to stimulate a “response” from Iran.

Their real plan was to create the response themselves, as was done by the Navy during the Tonkin Gulf Incident in 1964 when America “invented” an attack by North Vietnam as a prelude to a 10 year war America eventually lost.

Their plans were to create phony radio traffic simulating an Iranian attack in order to push America into authorizing hostilities that they, themselves, had perpetrated in as part of a conspiracy.

In the interview below, Vladimir Putin discusses, among other things, America’s phony radio intercepts.

You see, it was phony radio intercepts, they call it SIGINT for signals intelligence, from the USS Maddock,  that was used to justify America’s entry into the Vietnam War, which killed millions and wiped out a generation of Americans.  Phony radio intercepts are the heart of every war.  In 1967, Israel claimed that it had to go to war because of radio intercepts between Egypt’s Nassar and Jordan’s King Hussein.  Lest we forget, Israel pummeled the USS Liberty, offshore in international waters. to prevent real radio intercepts that would have proven their fake interception to be just that, fake.

USS Liberty

 

It was Israel that jammed communications by the USS Liberty allowing the crew to be slaughtered, the same Israel whose radio repeaters were used during the August 2013 Ghouta sarin attack and, I think we can safely surmise, the Idlib attack as well.  We begin with backstory, enjoy:

[ Editor’s note: It was time for Gordon to do one of his retrospective dot connectors. It is not that we are running out of current news; but because after years of covering a story, its beginning, middle and ending can get blurred.

We also like to keep pointing out how quickly mainstream media seems to forget, as they never put much effort into retrospection, even though it is easier to see what and why things were done after a few years, which makes you more aware of what is going on now.

I fear some of this is due to the unpleasant reality of their thinking that the public has no retention, so that effort would be wasted. Under the massive perception management assault we all endure, more and more people reject anything and everything that conflicts with what they want to believe.

Fewer readers are really searching for information and truth, but for validation of what they already believe. Fox News can explain the psychology to you in detail.

That sad state of affairs emanated from one of the early artificial intelligence studies. A computer was programmed to talk to interviewees and answer their questions. The purpose was to expose the weaknesses and improve the programming.

But what the system did was always repeat back what the participant asked, and then posed another question back to the participant; and this same process was repeated, for hours even. The scientist was astounded to see subjects loving the experience; and what he discovered was going on was that they loved being validated; they loved having their thoughts and words repeated to them over and over, and having the illusion of talking to someone/something that “understood them”.

This was quickly jumped on by the crowd manipulators as one of their main perception management tools, and with all the google profiling available as to what people’s interests are, this information is a goldmine for political operators who use it extensively in not only finding supporters, but keeping them revved up, and inexpensively, too. We are becoming plantation critters to them, in a literal senseJim W. Dean ]

On February 24, 2016, Turkey announced that it took the Syrian city of al Bab when ISIS resistance mysteriously collapsed. The day before, Veterans Today published a story, based on a live interview on the ground at al Bab, that Turkey had just loaded 950 ISIS fighters on trucks and was moving them north, into Turkey for redeployment to al Raqqah.

Based on this evidence and a strange battle narrative that had made little sense tactically, this deception by Turkey fits the Erdogan profile. Turkey has always coveted a buffer zone in Northern Syria and had, as it seems, used their own military to seize it some time ago, as our sources confirmed.

Now, as part of a coalition between Russia, Iran, Syria and themselves, they staged a battle in order to occupy Northern Syria officially. This may well be why the Syrian Arab Army is moving forces north and east to block Turkey from moving further into Syria, rather an attack Idlib or retake Palmyra.

What we are seeing is continued deception, not just in Syria but Iraq as well. But let’s look at the concurrent move by the Trump administration. President Trump had said reports damning Syria, who was actively fighting ISIS where others were, were largely fake news. One key example has been chemical warfare.

Here is another story that was buried and for good reason, because it is tied to a deception about Syria’s use of chemical weapons and how Israel was party to fabricating proof about these accusations, which are being taken to the United Nations Security Council this week by the U.S. under orders of President Trump, a violation of his promises to not only voters but Russia as well. From SyriaNews, May 22, 2013:

“Syrianews managed to confirm the news we received a couple of days ago that a Syrian Navy boat destroyed an Israeli submarine off the Syrian coast at 150 metres depth on 02 May 2013 around 2 – 2:30 am. We were not told the type or size of the submarine but we were confirmed it was destroyed.

In the details we managed to get: the enemy object was detected and orders were given to one of the nearby boats to destroy it which they did with a torpedo (not told which type), then it was monitored sinking until landing on the seabed off the coast.

A heavy movement of Syrian Army helicopters was observed over the site where the submarine was destroyed.

It’s not the first time Syrian Navy engage with enemy and hostile objects. At the very beginning of the Syrian crisis, the Syrian Navy spotted a German navy ship on a reconnaissance mission and harassed it away, a German minister then complained of the Syrian Navy acts claiming the ship was not spying, just listening and collecting information!”

What the story doesn’t tell is that the submarine with 84 onboard, went down with teams of IDF commandos who had been in Syria placing radio repeaters disguised as rocks. The repeaters were later used to send out messages “in the clear” misattributed to the Syrian Army, “confessions” of the use of Sarin gas. Evidence from these Israeli repeaters was presented to the U.N. after the August 2013 Sarin attack in Ghouta that killed 1000.

Now the United States under Trump is trying to renew these long ago exposed fake charges and pile on more. We might add that Russia tried repeatedly to introduce evidence on this Sarin case and subsequent uses of mustard and chlorine gasses by not only ISIS but U.S. backed rebels as well. The FSA went so far as to post video on YouTube showing them using gas projectiles in Syria but seemingly the CIA can’t crack into YouTube.

Jeffrey Silverman after one of his beatings by U.S. contractors, angry over his reporting

 

We can go further, correspondent Jeffrey Silverman, Georgia Bureau Chief for Veterans Today and featured contributor for New Eastern Outlook, investigated a U.S. facility in Tbilisi, Georgia, funded by USAID and built by Bechtel Corporation.

Silverman got plans of a U.S. lab, called the Lugar Laboratory, named after a famous American politician, formerly called the National Reference Laboratory of Georgia. According to plans for the facility that Silverman received from sources and subsequently published and statements by employees there, the U.S. had built a bio-chemical weapons facility.

A subsequent investigation showed how American corporate security operating in Georgia, working with the security services of Ukraine and Turkey, had moved chemical weapons to Syria where they were deployed by ISIS with the assistance of officers from the military of Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

In December, 2014, I met with the Syrian Ministry of Justice in Damascus and reviewed his records on this issue including reports of a Syrian Spetsnaz attack on a production and storage facility in Northern Syria and the results of that attack which included captured Turkish, Saudi and Qatari military officers and considerable documentation and physical evidence of chemical weapons deployment.

This evidence has repeatedly been offered to the United Nations, the evidence has been made available to the press, and the intelligence services of the United States most certainly. We also know that President Trump has had all of this made available to him and that he is aware of the “Lugar Lab” in Tbilisi and Israel’s role, aided by the Coventry U.K. based Syrian Human Rights Observatory and the Reuters News Agency, in a disinformation campaign against Syria.

Let’s look at issues of the massive amounts of military equipment terrorists have received. We are aware that units of the Syrian Army joined the rebels and took equipment with them including tanks, artillery and missile launchers. We are also aware that, when ISIS took Mosul, they captured tanks, Humvee’s and much more.

However, the fleets of Toyota Hilux “technical” with reinforced suspension and gun mounts are something else. These vehicles were delivered, already armed and converted, to the Jordanian port of Aqaba. With the hundreds of these units that have been captured or destroyed, no one has ever recorded the serial numbers of a single truck.

Similarly, when al Qaeda shows up with the latest TOW and Stinger missiles, in new shipping containers labeled “Raytheon Corporation/USA” nothing is said about that as well.

Then there is the issue of drones. In 2012, the Turkish Army signed a contract with Israel, despite bans put in place after the 2010 Mavi Marmara incident, to buy drones. Though many of the drones ISIS uses are commercially available and supplied to them by, well we don’t really know who, do we, some of them carry weapons and are of the same type as those delivered by Israel to Turkey. Imagine that.

Then there is the U.S. military air facility inside Jordan and the C130 aircraft without markings that are on the runway. In addition, US Special Forces have at least two airfields inside Syria, reported by mainstream news media but quickly forgotten, even visited by one CNN reporter, but when those facilities are used to drop supplies to ISIS, as is alleged by the Iraqi government, they suddenly vanish, from the media at least.

As President Trump relies on media that republishes these stories and uses material like this as his basis for attacking the mainstream media as fake, and rightly so, why does he not include this information in his policies as well, seeking redress?

What we have is broad support for terrorism by the U.S., Israel, Saudi Arabia, Ukraine, Georgia, Turkey and the Gulf States, so obvious it can’t be ignored, so illegal, so heinous, one might think something should be done.

When Israel simply walks away from having a submarine sunk, and starts a multi-year deception of paying off families of the dead, silencing them, and repainting hull markings to cover the loss, as we have also confirmed, what else is being done?

Former Military Contractor Tries to Sell Secret Surveillance Rock on eBay for $10 Million

By Dana Liebelson

Most people check out eBay for vintage shoes, collectable Lord of the Rings swords, and limited edition Bruce Springsteen posters. But last week, eBayers had the opportunity to bid on national security surveillance equipment, intended to be disguised in a fake rock (rock not included, although you can get one at Home Depot). The technology was allegedly accredited by the Department of Defense and developed for Lockheed Martin in the early 2000s. But Lockheed never bought the commissioned project. So Gregory Perry, a former subcontractor who has done cybersecurity work for the Executive Office for United States Attorneys (EOUSA), advertised that for a starting bid of $3 million—or a “buy it now” price of $10 million—you could get hundreds of pages of development instructions, two years of email backups with Lockheed, and some hardware, including a specialized radio. All of this would supposedly equip you to build your own “RockCam,” intended to be used to take encrypted video and audio of US critical infrastructure, like nuclear power plants and oil and gas pipelines.

Welcome to the bizarre world of fake-rock subcontracting.

“Selling this collection of information is an attempt at recouping all or a portion of my investment of time, effort, personal monies, and sweat equity,” Perry tells Mother Jones.

Perry, who has 100 percent positive buyer’s feedback on eBay, received dozens of bids when he first put the item up weeks ago. He took it down because he felt his story had received adequate exposure—and none of the bids were anywhere close to his original $10 million asking price. But he relisted the auction last week with a minimum bid because he “might have a serious buyer at this juncture.” As of publication, Perry had ended the auction on Sunday with zero bids, which is also the case with the $1,795 3-D printer that Perry was selling.

In the late ’90s, Perry worked for NETSEC Inc, a contractor that installed firewalls and did intrusion detection for EOUSA. (His employment by NETSEC was confirmed to Mother Jones by Zal Azmi, former chief information officer for EOUSA and the FBI.) Then, in 2002, Perry was hired by a subcontractor called Advanced Wireless Automation (AWA), where he owned a 10 percent founder’s share of the company. The subcontractor’s shining product was the RockCam, which is either a video camera with a lot of batteries or a high-tech piece of surveillance equipment, depending on who you ask. Perry says that RockCams—which on the outside, look like rocks—contain devices capable of sending encrypted information via 900 MHz radio to a main communication hub. According to the eBay listing, each high-resolution image and video is tagged with geographic coordinates, and the rock also contains environmental hardware, “such as temperature and humidity sensors for sampling weather-related data from the area.” The batteries last for three years. Here is a picture of the technology:

Perry says that Lockheed agreed to pay between $250,000-$500,000 for the final version of the device. (A Lockheed financial statement Perry sent Mother Jones shows that Lockheed was billed $4,000 for each public key encryption system, which doesn’t include the rest of the hardware.) Perry says his $96,000 salary was funded by these purchases as well as the investors that put money into the company. But Perry claims that after the RockCam was certified by DoD, he was fired by his fellow AWA shareholders (none of whom contacted by Mother Joneswould comment) and the company dissolved because Lockheed did not pick up the product. Then, a couple years later, “spy rock” arrived:

Last year, Jonathan Powell, former chief of staff to Tony Blair, admitted that MI6, the British secret service, had used a spy rock, planted in a park in Moscow, to communicate with secret agents there in 2006. Powell called the security breach “embarrassing.” After the rock was discovered, Russian leader Vladimir Putin then ordered a crackdown on foreign-funded NGOs, accusing them of destabilizing the country.

Perry claims that spy rock borrows technology he developed with RockCam—and as a result, he wants compensation for his 10 percent shareholder’s claim. However, there’s no evidence that Lockheed made the famous spy rock (MI6 does not answer press questions). According to Wired, it’s not entirely outside the realm of possibility that Lockheed is in the fake surveillance rock business, as it’s leaving small wireless sensors—disguised as rocks—across the Afghan countryside, in order to perform “unobtrusive, continuous surveillance” for decades. But one technology expert told Mother Jones that RockCam is a glorified camera, and spy rock acts as a mailbox for uploading wireless files, so the only thing they have in common is the fake rock (Perry argues that his design has “wireless networking capabilities”).

Melissa Dalton, a spokesperson for the Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Skunkworks Group, would not comment on the eBay sale nor documents Perry sent Mother Jones allegedly showing his relationship with the company. Mark Wright, a spokesman for the Department of Defense, says that on cursory investigation, “We couldn’t find any knowledge of DOD involvement with this project.” However, after sending additional requested information about the project, another DOD spokesperson said that “we’re researching it” but did not respond by deadline.

Wayne Mitzen—a technology developer with several patents who worked with Perry at NETSEC and currently makes sex toys—says that this eBay listing isn’t actually that unusual. “One of my clients, who invented wireless microphone technology, mentioned his stuff’s ended up on eBay, too. It happens,” he says. “It’s the Snowden effect. Everybody thinks they’re Snowden, you know?”*

Russian Bunker Buster Takes Out al Qaeda and White Helmets Hideout*

An underground command centre for White Helmets and al Qaeda terrorists was destroyed by a Russian “bunker buster” bomb.  The White Helmets, an organization tied to al Qaeda and the spy agencies of Britain, Israel, Qatar and the U.S., suffered an unknown number of casualties.  The video shows survivors coming out of the massive underground complex.  The number of White Helmet dead is not known.

A video with consequences of appliance of a 1.5-ton bomb by the Russian Aerospace Forces has been released in the Internet. The KAB-1500 bomb is considered to be the most powerful Russian bomb.

The bomb was dropped by the Su-34 aircraft in the province of Idlib. An underground bunker of White Helmet terrorists, which had played a role of an important communication centre, was destroyed with the help of KAB-1500.

The video shows flight of a bomber against radio talks in the Arab language. Then a smoke can be seen over epicentre of the explosion and an impressive shell crater.

As Pravda.Ru reported before, the KAB-1500 smart aircraft bomb is famous for its high accuracy. It is equipped with a laser target seeker.

Such bombs are applied against highly fortified targets – mountainous positions, underground bunkers, command posts, concrete shelters, stores with weapons.

High-explosive capsule of the combat part is capable of penetrating 20 metres of ground or strike 3-m wide concrete walls. The KAB-1500 bombs have been applied in Afghanistan and Chechnya to destroy especially important and secured targets. Such bombs are not dropped on cities.

Wielding an image of former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell during his infamous “weapons of mass destruction” speech that helped make the case for the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, Sacha Llorenti, the Bolivian ambassador to the United Nations, blasted the United States for its unilateral military action against Syria saying it is “vital to remember what history teaches us.”

Llorenti, whose country holds a non-permanent seat on the U.N. Security Council (UNSC) and had called the emergency meeting, said that while members of the body were “discussing and demanding the need for an independent and impartial investigation” into Tuesday’s chemical attack on civilians in Idlib, Syria, the United States was “preparing—once again—to carry out a unilateral attack.

“The United States has not only unilaterally attacked,” Llorenti said,

“the United States has become that investigator, has become the prosecutor, has become the judge, has become the jury. Whereas the investigation would have allowed us to establish an in an objective manner who is responsible for the attacks, this is an extreme, extreme violation of international law.”

The reason for the UNSC, he explained, is that it has “developed instruments of international law to precisely prevent a situation where the most powerful attack the weakest with impunity and to ensure a balance in the world.”

Llorenti further observed that throughout history there were “many episodes in which…various powers…have acted unilaterally and violently. But that it happened once again does not mean that the U.N. must accept it.”

“On Wednesday, February 5, 2003, the U.S. Secretary of State came to this room and came to present to us, according to his own words, “convincing proof that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq,'” the ambassador said.

Then, holding the image of Powell, Llorenti continued:

“I believe that we must absolutely remember these pictures…We were told that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and this was the motivation for the invasion. After the invasion there were 1 million deaths and it launched a series of atrocities in that region. Could we talk about [the Islamic State] if that invasion had not taken place? Could we talk about the serious and horrendous attacks in various parts of the world if that illegal invasion had not taken place? I believe it is vital to remember what history teaches us.”

For her part, Nikki Haley, President Donald Trump’s ambassador to the U.N., called the deployment of 59 Tomahawk missiles a “measured step,” and said that the U.S. is “prepared to do more, but we hope it will not be necessary.”
