On The Record

Speaking Bluntly,

Brigadier-General (Res.) Zvika Fogel interviewed on the Yoman Hashevua program of Israel’s Kan radio, 21 April 2018 
This transcript of an Israeli General on an Israeli radio station (begins 6.52 in) defending the latest killing by Israeli army snipers of a 14 year old boy who posed no threat of any kind, is much more powerful if you just read it than any analysis I can give. 

The Mainstream Media is frantically attacking dissenting Syria narratives, and it looks really bad. 
What happens when it becomes the accepted wisdom that the TV and NPR are lying lying about important things like wars?

None of the arguments currently being used in Britain and the US to smear those sceptical of the governmental and media consensus are new. The Bolsheviks used to denounce people who said or did things they did not like as “objectively” being fascists or counter-revolutionaries. When those being denounced, often only a preliminary to being shot, replied that they were no such thing, the Bolsheviks would reply: “tell us who supports you and we will tell you who you are”. 

OPCW investigators found no evidence of chemical weapons at Syrian sites bombed by US.

Russia sends pictures of two lost American cruise missiles they found slightly rumpled in Syria, one from a ship and one from an airplane. They are attending to these poor lost missiles with the greatest of care and plan to find out exactly what is wrong with them, for the good of all parties invloved. It may take awhile. Also, it is clear that the Pentagon assessment that all 105 missiles found their targets, is at least a little wrong. The Russians say it's a lot wrong, and they make a pretty good case for only 22 hits can be confirmed, and they are pretty certain that the Syrians shot down 71 (71 + 22+ 2= 95, where are the other 10?)

Russia announces it will send advances S300 anti-aircraft missiles to Syria, and that if Israel attacks them, as threatened, there will be severe consequences. (Russians don't bluff. Bibi, how does this look?)

Saudi foreign minister tells Qatar that they have to send troops to Syria or lose their big US naval base and American support, which will topple their government. ("Wishful Saudi thinking", sez I).

Korean Peace Summit is happening now, with Kim Jong Un being the (very bold) first North Korean leader to set foot on southern soil since they were divided by war.

French public services, like healthcare and railways, have been excellent since WW-2, a matter of deep pride and satisfaction for public workers. French railway workers are on the lines fighting the globalist neoliberal machine that is dismantling all rights of all workers, and the pride they have in the quality of their work (mostly a fait accomplis here already). Thanks Wigs.

Bernie Sanders announces plans a job for every American, at a decent wage, anybody who wants to work will get training and a job, guarantied. Details to follow. (It is important to get some work skills and experience back into Americans, I think. This will obviously be a good plan in the next financial crisis, which probably can't be papered over with promises, like the last one.)

More details:

Was there an advanced industrial civilization on Earth, prior to the evolution of humans, something like 60 million years ago? How would our effects on Earth look 60 million years from now? Hmm, kinda hard to look at, happening this fast...

New DNA shape identified in human cells is not a double helix, and seems to have specific on-off regulation functions for deciding what other DNA the cell should read into proteins. It's kinda like a spitwad, but they cll it something more technical.
