Russia Accuses US of White Phosphorus Attack in Syria
ZeroHedge | mintpressnews.com | 2018-09-10
President Trump has continued to threaten Syrian and Russian forces planning to take back the terrorist-controlled stronghold of Idlib in northwestern Syria, potentially bringing the world to the brink of World War III, as we explained yesterday. But Trump's tweets about the potential "humanitarian catastrophe" have exposed a guiding principle of the US's involvement in Syria (and indeed across the Middle East): A chemical weapons attack isn't a "catastrophe" if it's carried out by the US. | In what Russian officials warned could be a preamble to another US-approved false flag attack, US jets on Saturday reportedly dropped white phosphorus on Hajin, a Syrian town in the Deir Ez-Zor province. When it comes in contact with oxygen, white phosphorus can cause massive fires. Because of this, it's banned by the Geneva Convention for use in combat. Russian officials said they're still waiting…

17 Years Since 9/11 Inside Job
WIJ | indybay.org | 2018-09-10
One measure of the success of the 9/11 Truth Movement is that in this 17th year since the September 11, 2001 Inside Job, the capitalist class has had to resurrect the old pretext of anti-Russian hysteria with its mouthpiece of the Democratic Party, since the other mouthpiece, the Republican Party, failed to convince Americans that scapegoating Muslims and immigrants in the effort of the capitalist class to promote war and fascism to maximize profits was worthwhile policy. So now, the Democrats scapegoat Russians instead of promoting a serious anti-poverty plan.
