Putin, Russia and the West

Sky News rapidly cut off former Cmdr of British in Iraq once he goes off Piste. For an urgent ad break.

Hmmm, last time that buffoon (the Russian Foreign Minister) had incontrovertible proof, it was from a computer game. What is it this time? A crayon drawing? If they still had uniforms and medals, he’d have them all the way down his trousers.

The Germans never take part in military action, barring Afghanistan against al-Quaeda, and only then because in defence of a NATO member.

If the lunatic had stuck to blaming just the Israelis, he’d have a better chance of getting away with it. As it is, it sounds like the usual FUD from a Russian state that runs on lies, propaganda, more lies and the occasional half-truth thrown in.

The UK would know about chemical weapons in Syria. From the BBC 2014

During that same era they help Saddam’s programme too, which they later used as moral justification for invasion.

I have never believed the Salisbury story. Iraq was was folly, wading into Syria will be sheer madness.

Comparing migrants to swarms of zombies are we? I’m done with your forum. Let the useful idiots and alt-right posters wallow in their propaganda.

US and allies launch strikes on Syria chemical weapons sites
bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-43762251

Russia’s ambassador to Lebanon said yesterday that any U.S. missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launch sites targeted, a step that could trigger a major escalation in the Syrian war.

since syria has lost all ability to to make chemical weapons.

what will happen the next time there’s a chemical attack? do the moderate headchoppers still have stocks to use on themselves?

This section of the forum is not for delicate types. Adios.

Israel bombs Iranian airbase in southern Syria. It’s all about to kick off.


#931

Interesting that RT claim to know . According to the OPCW "The name and structure of the identified toxic chemical are contained in the full
classified report of the Secretariat, available to States Parties. "

@rebelbuttmunch
That had been made public by Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov.

While the Russians are unreliable and biased. Who is it that is calling for the OPCW (a neutral body based in the Hague) to conduct a full investigation and who is trying to prevent this?

The ‘chemical weapons’ attack smells to high heavens.


#937

Despite your misinformation it is clear that there is only one side trying to block OPCW from doing their job

#938

Is it all Assad’s fault or do the people bankrolling ISIS not share some of the blame


#939

Here is a recent statement(~1 hour) from the OPCW. It appears that Russia/Syria supported their request but they can’t approach Douma. According to the Russians this is due to the recent bombing. It is difficult to say if this would have been the case had the recent strike not taken place and instead been delayed until the OPCW had conducted their investigation.

Why bomb before the OPCW had conducted their investigation?

Interesting take from Robert Fisk no less, hardly a Russian stooge, on the ground in Douma.
