The Debate – Liberation of Aleppo – Who controls the story

We are going to here from the people of Aleppo now

Note: This was a good a slugfest opportunity as one gets for a Debate Show opponent, from a well-funded thinktank group hardwired into the liberal establishment to provide bipartisanship to the NeoCon anti-Assad wing, which strives to give Assad a higher “devil profile” than the jihadis.

Notice how, while he drops in a few “both sides have committed atrocities”, he does not specifically acknowledge a single false news report, including those being revealed by eye witnesses, and neither does the UN, which you can tell is official policy, and which includes this guy.

But this was my opportunity to publicly challenge the UN on its coverup of the jihadi crimes against humanity there. Even the French Doctors without Borders are involved. When the Grand Mufti of Syria had his denomination-free hospitals taken over by the Jihadis, one facility had all of its dialysis machines stripped out and sold to Turkey.

The Mufti said that his other hospitals that were functioning after the jihadi takeover were then serving “jihadis only”. He did not say they doubled as command centers, but I will point this out. Then, when the hospitals/command centers were bombed, the jihadis killed some innocent people and spread them around for the British Intel video teams.

The intelligence people know this (and also know who pays them), so we know the UN knows, because they have access to these people.

Sure, not all the UN people are involved or even know, but the UN is effectively providing cover by keeping this quiet, and hence my suggestion to the Aleppo people that they give them some payback while they are there, and record it.

We will support the victims of Aleppo from our end here, but they have to step up to take control over how their story is told, including attacking those in the industrial-scale, fake news that has developed.

You have third world social media bloggers trying to make ad-click money by forging their own reports. Ian has the report of an independent team in Egypt trying to get in on the action, and such things have become the fake news gang bang of Aleppo. I don’t mean to be crude, but we know there was a lot of rape that went on. The locals use the euphemism of “they took our daughters”, so I feel no obligation to cut them any slack… JD ]



– Broadcast on … December 19, 2016 –

While the evacuation of civilians has hit snags, specifically from the terrorists, like targeting the buses, kidnapping the drivers, and setting the buses on fire, there has been a resolution that has been passed by the UN which Russia agreed for UN staff to be deployed t eastern Aleppo for the evacuation of civilians and some of the so-called rebels or terrorists.

In this edition of the debate, we’ll discuss the operation and what the liberation means and how this has almost stifled the moves by the western coalition on their regime change aspiration.

Dear readers, if you want to get a better feel for how “connected” the establishment is via these groups, the Foreign Policy in Focus people, (with their 600 scholars) mention on their “about” page that they are a “project of” the Institute of Policy Studies.

They claim to be independent by not taking government money, and that may even be true. But governments who have long time major fronts pushing their positions are quite adept at funding them through a variety of means.

Take a look at how an extra $3 million came in during 2014, with most of it just going into reserves. How nice:

  1. Jim, when you do these debates, are you able to see the other guy’s face? I ask because I watched it, and Ian William’s face and voice showed he was visibly upset when you destroyed his pathetic arguments. (Yes, Doctors Without Borders has some explaining to do.) The moderator’s remarks were interesting too. I wrote down the names of the countries that he said had officers holed up in E. Aleppo trying to get out, which was the reason for the UN resolution: Turkey, US, Israel, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Morocco.

    • No, I cannot see the guest as I have the camera and operator in front of me only, and an ear piece. These pompous people are easy to get upset as they consider their positions unassailable as they all drink the koolaid. I kept the spurs in him because he would not acknowledge any jihadi atrocities directly, only indirectly. Yes there were opposition groups in East Aleppo. Southfront had with map position flag up every day, but they were part of the al-Nusra command and control which makes them legally liable for the atrocities. They have found enough food already in storage to feed a few hundred thousand people for a few years. People who were non supporters, they were starving them out, just like the Allied did. With the jihadis each family had to contribute one male member to fight for the family to get food and medicine, or pay the rip off prices. These people are a security threat as long as they are alive, period.

  2. Always the same narrative from NWO agents. When USA bombs hospitals it is called an “error” a “misled intel” or simply a “mistake”, when Syria and Russia bomb hospital it is called an “atrocity”, a “humanitarian tragedy” an “appalling heinous war crime”. “UN has 193 members”. That’s a lovely statistical statement which is only used when needed to globalize the bias having the upper hand on “humanitarian and peacekeeping deployment” issues. “New Zealand have always stood up for international human rights.” Yeah right. So did Iceland and every other island-far-away privileged land. “This is the world.” No, USA, UK and New Zealand are not the world. They are not even international or diverse in foreign policy opinion. Five Eyes club and their regime(s) are just losers, their propaganda momentum is finished, there is no other way to put it. They are not international, they are not humanitarian, they are not representing the world, or the west, they are basically the lowest moral point on earth at the moment. They don’t have solutions (NATO), they don’t have credentials (again NATO), and most important they don’t have what it takes to steer the one world government they always love to refer to.
