Vladimir Putin, "Idlib ‘chemical attack’ was a false flag, more false flags to come! — Putin on Syria", Russia Insider (11 April 2017)
I thought it was worth reposting this link under the present circumstances. A year ago Vladimir Putin claimed that he had intelligence indicating that more "false flags like this one" (the chemical attack in Idlib) were being prepared elsewhere in Syria in order to "accuse the Syrian government of an attack."
Ron Paul & Daniel McAdams, "Another False Flag - Will Trump Escalate in Syria?", Ron Paul Liberty Report (09 April 2018)
"Rebel-allied organizations in Syria have claimed that the government has released chlorine gas near Ghouta, killing dozens. The Syrians and Russians deny the charges. Neocons are all demanding that Trump launch a bigger attack or America will "lose face." Will the Russians sit back and allow another US attack on the Syrian government? And if they don't?"—Ron Paul Liberty Report

What happened in Syria on April 7 had been expected. While raising hue and cry over the alleged chemical attack in Douma, a rebel-held suburb of the capital, Western officials and media wasted no time to put the blame on the Assad government.
Craig Murray, "Portonblimp Down Episode 2 - A Tale by Boris Johnson", CraigMurray.org.uk (08 April 2018)"Comrade Putin, we have successfully stockpiled novichoks in secret for ten years, and kept them hidden from the OPCW inspectors. We have also trained our agents in secret novichok assassination techniques. The programme has cost hundreds of millions of dollars, but now we are ready.

I know I've posted this before, but it keeps coming back to my mind. It's worth listening to. Amazing how art can help restore a sense of sanity in a mad, mad world. Thanks Chris.

Craig Murray, "Boris Johnson A Catagorical Liar", CraigMurray.org.uk (22 March 2018)"Evidence submitted by the British government in court today proves, beyond any doubt, that Boris Johnson has been point blank lying about the degree of certainty Porton Down scientists have about the Skripals being poisoned with a Russian “novichok” agent."
McKeigue & Robinson, "Doubts About 'Novichoks' ", Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media (March 2018)
The link is to a briefing note by the Working Group on Syria, Media and Propaganda authored by Professors Paul McKeigue and Piers Robinson. It is important to bear in mind that the note reflects work in progress, but that "the substantive questions raised need answering, especially given the seriousness of the political crisis that is now developing." They welcome comments and corrections.
Nafeez Ahmed, "The UK government is manufacturing its nerve agent case for ‘action’ on Russia", Insurge Intelligence (14 March 2018)Although I'm recommending Nafeez Ahmed's article, let me just add a few thoughts on this Skripal affair, because it's been bothering me (as, I suspect, it has you). What would Putin have had to gain from this? It's been suggested that the attack was some kind of warning to other would-be traitors. But if you work for intelligence agencies surely you don't need such a warning. You know the score already: You sell secrets, you may well end up.

"WTC7 : The Search for The Truth Continues", One Ten Thousandth YouTube channel (16 July 2017)
Another effective short video from "Platos Cave", in which the over-confident statements of NIST's lead investigator for the 9/11 WTC "collapses", Dr. Shyam Sunder, are contrasted with the serious misgivings of various engineers and architects who remain unsatisfied by the official explanations.
"James W. Sire" InterVarsity Press (07 February 2018)It is with sadness that I pass on news of the death of James W. Sire, the well-known Christian writer and former senior editor at InterVarsity Press. This afternoon I received an email from my contact at IVP who kindly informed me that Dr. Sire had passed away last night. But amidst the sadness, there is also peace—which I wish for his family and friends—in the knowledge that he is with his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, whom he served for so many years.
Chris Bell, "The people who think 9/11 may have been as 'inside job' ", BBC News (01 February 2018)I amaze myself. Even though—as the writer reliably informs us (and he must be reliable because he's writing for the BBC)—"subsequent investigations have made it clear that the tower structures were weakened by the inferno from the planes and felled by the weight of collapsing floors"—even now—yes, even now—"some people refuse to believe this version of events."
