This does not bode well for the life expectancies of certain individuals. Again, a specter has returned to haunt the halls of the White House...

After feeling mild symptoms similar to those of infection with Covid-19 virus, the President met #الأسد And mrs #أسماء_الأسد Examination of the PCR and the result showed that they were infected with the virus, knowing that they are in good health and in stable condition, and they will continue their work during their home quarantine period, which will last for two or three weeks.

Global Pandemic defeated by the Assad Curse, entire world owes a debt of gratitude to the people of Syria
#2930
it is imo really unfair to the virus to act as though it called for overthrowing the government of Syria. Please think this through

in that piece he mentions the US sanctions on Iraq for the decade+ before the invasion, and it reminded me of an article Foreign Affairs ran in 1999 entitled "Sanctions of Mass Destruction." one of its authors' conclusions was that the US sanctions on Iraq during that decade caused more deaths than all the WMDs used in history up to that point

i'm not sure how the Grayzone discussing the imperialist destruction of Syria is the equivalent to farting, you'll have to enlighten me here

Grover Furr's prolific writing has been the only positive thing in the last 10 years

i'd say the heroic resistance from Bolivia, Nicaragua and Venezuela against the US empire in Latin America, but Grover Furr is pretty cool too.

David Lesch, Assad biographer and self-described "unofficial liasion" to Damascus many years ago, got an opinion piece published by CNN today. The article tries to get everyone used to the idea that Washington will have to negotiate with the current government in Damascus in the near future, saying that wouldn't, like, reflect poorly on Washington's last decade of failed anti-Damascus strategy or anything, you know, just like, a hard-nosed realist sort of decision that maybe has to be made by the hard-nosed realists of completely masculine and victorious Washington, to give up trying to destroy Syria and start talking with its government instead. Kind of interesting

uncle joe cracks an ice cold pabst (presidential authorization to bomb syrian territory) blue ribbon (but legitimized using exculpating reference to "iran-backed" bases or ordnance in the narrative)

it’s kind of funny that White House polling has determined that their press statements, and therefore all the Western press stories, are misrepresenting this as an attack on Iran instead of Syria
#2945
like, most people don’t click through headlines and will not even realize the story involves Syria at all
#2946
i am even remotely curious given CNN actually publishing that self-aggrandizing article by Lesch if this is some sort of attempted propaganda move by the White House prior to pursuing talks behind the scenes. like trying to establish a strong position with puffed up belligerence inside Syria while also really playing up the whole “Tehran’s meddling is the real problem” press-propaganda angle Washington has advanced alongside everything else. not very likely but at least possible i suppose.

in any case, strange (not homosexual) stuff
