Erdogan: Bluffer or Potentate?

By Steve Brown – While the US concentrates on the crimes of its depraved political class, public exposure and the bright light thrown on their heinous crimes seems to have provided a window to get real work done, opposing corrupt US influence elsewhere, especially in Syria. Syrian security forces are making progress in cutting supply routes to terrorist-held regions, especially versus Jaysh al-Ahrar and Ahrar al Sham … (at least that is what they call themselves at this hour, their names could change next hour). But in light of the recent Hayat Tahrir al-Sham terror offensive in Idlib, the informed… Continue ->

All quiet on the Skripal Front; “highly likely” still passing for evidence

Published 2019-08-16 02:26:38 by Tom Winter in Anglo-5, News, Russia, United-States

All Quiet on the Skripal Front Buried away in a timeline of “What we know about the Skripal Poisoning” theBBC noted  in October, 2018: “Ms Skripal was released from hospital on 9 April and her father was discharged on 18 May. Both were taken to a secure location.” Where? Have they been given new identities and new lives, as in the American “witness protection program”?
