Twitter Web Client : Fact: Just because HRW claims it happened doesn’t make it so. These allegations are sourced to an anti-Assad opposition closely affiliated with al-Qaeda, the poster child of human rights violations. Al-Qaeda-OPCW-UN-HRW; the circular confirmation of lies does not make it true. twitter.com/astroehlein/st…

Twitter Web Client : Journalists who continually wring their hands over Trump's tariffs have no problem with sanctions of his that target poor, war-ravaged countries that desperately need economic assistance. twitter.com/21WIRE/status/…

Twitter Web Client : If you’re not supporting Assad in this conflict, you’re supporting al-Qaeda. And if you’re American and embracing such a position, then there are serious problems. The question isn’t why Tulsi opposes al-Qaeda in Syria, but rather why aren’t all the other candidates with her. twitter.com/billbrowder/st…

Twitter Web Client : The US keeps insisting that its goal in #Syria is not regime change but everything it does indicates otherwise. Be it its military presence, its support of jihadist groups or its inhumane sanctions. What better example of this than this very petty pronouncement. Disgusting. twitter.com/USEmbassySyria…

Twitter Web Client : Hard to justify such huge expenditures on jamborees involving "allies" who already hold bilateral talks on an almost daily basis. Summits make sense when there are major treaties to sign or when erstwhile enemies meet to inaugurate a new era of good relations. twitter.com/adamgarriereal…

Twitter Web Client : According to Jon Snow then, Britain has the right to interfere in the internal affairs of every country that had once been its colony. No wonder Gao seemed a little bemused by this. twitter.com/thebeestang/st…

Twitter Web Client : Nullus No, the Western powers, in order to avoid war, colluded to dismantle an internationally-recognized state. As I say, their action was understandable; they wanted to avoid war. Stalin also sought to avoid war, and to rectify Poland's 1920 seizure of land not inhabited by Poles.
