The Western media has launched a volley of sycophantic praise of Trump’s victory in the great American raid on a Syrian airport, which produced new dead, though fewer than what is now routinely accepted as a lugubrious normal.
Nevertheless, it seems that the US has dropped the pretense and decided to intervene directly in the Syrian conflict. A conflict it wanted and prepared, while hiding behind the mask of a civil war. Continue reading
The Pentagon recently released more photos taken in the aftermath of the 9/11 plane crash. They do not clear the doubts of many on the dynamics of the crash against the Pentagon.

The Italians said “no” in the recent referendum. Its main objective was to reform the Italian Constitution, strengthen the authority of the government and reduce the power of the electorate at large to influence political outcomes.

Unskilled in political autopsies, I will not discuss details amply elucidated elsewhere, in the mainstream and alternative media.
