‘When it comes to Syria, the level of disinformation fraud from US Coalition-aligned agencies shows no sign of diminishing. Once more, the West is attempting to produce an open and shut case of humanitarian law violation, with which to further demonize the nations of both Syria and Russia.

This, in turn, will enable them to escalate hostilities on the ground in Syria and invoke the much sought after ‘No Fly Zone’ which will be used to facilitate full spectrum destablization and a NATO bombing of Syria into the oblivion of a Libya-style failed state.’

‘The US Ambassador to the United Nations claims that Russia is responsible for the horrors that have descended upon Syria, but remained silent about the 1.5 million civilians whose water was shut off by US-backed rebels.

The United States Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power blamed Russia for the surge in violence in Syria after the ceasefire agreement collapsed last week following a US-led airstrike in Deir Ez-Zor that killed 62 Syrian Army soldiers and left scores injured causing fighting to intensify to a breaking point.

Russia points to the over 300 ceasefire violations by US-backed Syrian rebels in the first days of the ceasefire and the refusal of the so-called ‘moderates’ to adhere to the conditions of the agreement forged by Russia and the United States which called for the rebels to disassociate with the terror group Al-Nusra Front, Syria’s al-Qaeda affiliate until a recent rebrand.’

‘The Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, lashed out at the British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson after he claimed in an interview with the BBC that Russia is “guilty of protracting” war in Syria and potentially of committing war crimes.

“All correct, expect for two words: one should put ‘Britain’ instead of ‘Russia’ and ‘Iraq’ instead of ‘Syria’,” Zakharova said in a Facebook post, responding to the British minister’s comments.

Speaking on the Andrew Marr show on the BBC, Johnson said that he believes Russia is “guilty of protracting” the war in Syria and of “making it far more hideous”.’

‘The United Kingdom has blocked European Union efforts to launch an independent international inquiry into Saudi Arabia’s war of aggression in Yemen.

The Netherlands had hoped to gather support for its proposal that the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) in Geneva establish an inquiry to look into war crimes and civilian deaths in Yemen, The Guardian reported.

The proposal, submitted Friday by Slovakia on behalf of the EU, was replaced by a much weaker call for the UN body to dispatch a mission “to monitor and report on the situation” after the UK refused to give its backing.

Human Rights Watch and other rights groups protested the UK’s stance, accusing it of protecting its arms deals with the Saudi regime.’

As we have sought to document at MHB on a routine basis, ‘active shooter drills’ are now common occurrences across the US. Such “training” is a consequence of the heightened federalization of local and regional law enforcement.

The September 23 Cascade Mall shooting north of Seattle in northwest Washington State took place shortly before 7:00PM local time, and has certain suspect features evident in photos, particularly evidence of tents and porta-potties on the scene, as observed by a MHB reader.

There is an absence of footage of wounded or deceased victims in triage or being given ambulatory services away from the scene. Instead, news media were told victims remained in the mall awaiting the local coroner.’
