Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Refutes Point by Point, OPCW report on Syrian Khan Sheikhoun Incident

An Unfortunate Situation


A worthwhile watch!

Yours truly is very disappointed in how my western governments are approaching foreign policy in such a misleading way. It's clear to me that the US isn't holding the moral high ground in this endeavour.
From the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova weighs in (via Fort RussInessa Sinchougova, English Subs)

"The recent report of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and the United Nations accused the Syrian government troops of being responsible for the Khan Sheikhoun chemical attack, without providing any evidence.
The fact that the OPCW has not properly acknowledged the possibility that sarin gaas was in the possession of the rebels in Khan Sheikhoun, on April 4, 2017, is yet another major issue with regard to the veracity of the OPCW report and its findings.
There have been multiple sources of evidence in the past that the terrorists in Syria were getting toxic substances the same way they were getting many of their arms - from Saudi Arabia through Turkey.
The Syrian government has rejected the OPCW report results, noting that the experts had not conducted any investigations directly at the scene of the incident in Khan Sheikhoun. The Permanent Mission of Russia to the United Nations said that the report looked more like an amateur document and was based mostly on assumptions, and selective use of facts.
Maria Zakharova, Russia’s Foreign Affairs spokesperson, went further and drew comparisons to the “damning evidence” that the US brought to the UNSC, in relation to Saddam Hussein’s alleged programme for the production of WMDs in Iraq – none of which ever existed. The entire debacle was based on briefs prepared by US intelligence, causing us to question the validity of the claims against Syria’s government today, in the absence of an objective investigation."

Christopher Hitchens: Answers Why He Preached Against the Theocracy Belief System

Brilliant! Mr. Hitchens just gave voice to what I sincerely believe, but couldn't verbalize.

I was raised in one of those Plymouth Brethren Christian homes, where belief in the End of Times, especially the book of Revelations in the Bible was preached daily. One can't be saved by good deeds, but by being a Born Again Christian for the coming Rapture and End of Times.


As far as I'm concerned, that belief system is no different than the WahabiMuslim belief system. They both can go to hell! Evil is right!

EFF is Suing to Get List of Best Buy's Geek Squad Informants

A Best Buy Geek Squad Volkswagen New Beetle. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) I had previously covered this here in a post earlier this past January. Now the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has announced that they are suing the FBI for the list of informants they used at Geek Squad.
The EFF also posted to their members blog the reasons why they wish to uncover these informants.

The reasoning from EFF's post:

"Sending your computer to Best Buy for repairs shouldn’t require you to surrender your Fourth Amendment rights. But that’s apparently what’s been happening when customers send their computers to a Geek Squad repair facility in Kentucky.

We think the FBI’s use of Best Buy Geek Squad employees to search people’s computers without a warrant threatens to circumvent people’s constitutional rights. That’s why we filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit today against the FBI seeking records about the extent to which it directs and trains Best Buy employees to conduct warr…
