unsubstantiated, to say the least...mainly peddled by Russians, Assad apologists, and alt-right personalities.
Not one of the cool kids, and really insecure about it.

???

There are rumours that the white helmets weren't Syrian rescue workers but were actually up to no good during the conflict,  supposedly external fighters working against Assad and his regime.   Theyve now been scuttled out of the country as the West has lost Syria.

Ah. Okay then.

Idlib offensive began 7 hrs ago. 40 bombing sorties by Russian and Syrian air force. Eastern Med packed with Russian and American naval assets. One to keep an eye on especially after Trumps recent comments.

Bit early to classify this as a terrorist attack but the guy who went on the rampage in Paris last night was thwarted partly due to people playing petanque nearby chasing him and stotting metal boules off his head.  That has to be the most Parisian response ever, aside from maybe beating him to death with a baguette.

There's a decent article here. A proper little mob got together and stopped him by the sounds of it.

Been a clusterfuck from day 1, but really f***ing great to see Trump is setting up the Kurds to be slaughtered in Syria. No doubt the Turks are gonna f*** em up as soon as we’re out of the way. Disgraceful.

Meanwhile, we’re still backing the Saudis as they carpet bomb Yemeni civilians :thup:

At some point Kurds are going to turn on the West.  I can't say I would have any much faith in most other would-be Presidents regarding keeping them safe, goes back a while now this constant betrayal.  Given Trump though, you always sense there'll be something shady going on.  Believe he's been talking with Erdogan recently?  A peace offering perhaps.

A decent read on it.

Quote
A telephone conversation with Erdogan a week ago reportedly convinced Trump that he had to get US soldiers and airpower out of Syria. Keep in mind that Trump needs – though he may not get as much as he wants – Turkey as an ally in the Middle East more than ever before.

Last person he spoke to before making the decision no doubt.

Wait are we going back to war with Iraq? I thought we were all p*ssed at Iran now. Although it's entirely possible that Trump doesn't actually know the difference between the two.

From what I've read it's to do with insurgency threats within Iraq.

In the event of war with Iran, they’d want to evacuate non-essential personnel from Iraq, who are most vulnerable to reprisals. Particularly with so many Iranian-backed militias in Iraq.

It’s also very likely that it’s complete bullshit, there aren’t any legitimate threats, and they’re trying to drum up support to attack Iran.

I can see no positive outcomes from this, but I think assuming the US is going to war with Iran, is jumping the gun a little. :lol: Iran is a much more stable and powerful regime than Iraq ever was, prior to invasion.

"British general says no increased Iran threat in Syria and Iraq, prompting rare rebuke by Pentagon."

More evidence the US is doing this because they want to more than they need to.
