This Week in the Guardian #10 – OffGuardian

Polly Toynbee’s minders have let her loose at the gin again, and she’s rattled off an incoherent mess of an article which is essentially an effort in curling all the people she doesn’t like into one ball and flushing it down the toilet.

Media Big Lies Over SC Debate on Aid to Syrians – Stephen Lendman

Since Obama regime preemptive war on Syria began in March 2011, a nonbelligerent state threatening no one, establishment media reporting on endless war has been some of the most abysmal in modern memory.

US Economic Embargo​​​​​​​ on Syria Is ‘Crime Against Humanity’ – Global Research

“What the mainstream doesn’t say is that the West is entirely guilty of supreme international war crimes, daily really. The entire regime-change wars have no basis in international law.
