The Humanitarian War Of The West In 
Syria Conducted By The White Helmets

By Sonja Van den Ende
Independent journalist

The White Helmets in their training camp, they were trained by an ex-soldier from the UK. The training camp was located in Jordan, 40 kilometers from the capital Amman. Next to this camp was another camp, the “real” training camp of the Free Syrian Army, also trained by soldiers of the UK. A new documentary by ANNA News comes with shocking revelations about the White Helmets.

Not much attention was paid of course in the regular media about the new documentary made by ANNA News by reporters embedded with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Russian Army in Syria.

The White Helmets have long become the “brand” of the Syrian conflict. Their reports on the use of chemical weapons have twice become an excuse for striking government troops. In August 2018, the Syrian army liberated the provinces of Daraa and Quneitra, in the south of Syria, there are still about 300 former members of the White Helmets left there. These people did not accept the offer of the leadership of the White Helmets to leave through Israel or to evacuate to Idlib. Anna News managed to meet with former White Helmets employees. The documentary shows the results of a one-month investigation. Exclusive material was collected that shed new light and details on the work of this co-called "independent" organization. It shows their training, finance and relations with foreign intelligence services. The West calls the war in Syria and the White Helmets “a Humanitarian War”.

A summary about the situation

1. In the summer of 2018, Operation “Basalt” of the SAA was completed. The majority of the remaining terrorists from Al-Nusra and Hayat-as-Sham fled to Idlib, among them the majority of the White Helmets, who are part of these terrorist groups, but three-hundred left the White Helmets and Anna News spoke to them. They are mostly native Syrians, who joined the White Helmets because of money or as some of them say were misinformed or forced to join.

2. As of 2016, the White Helmets received training abroad in Jordan, even the border with Syria was closed. They were put into buses, had their mobile phones taken away and weren’t allowed to speak. Also the windows of the bus were made dark.

3. Their payment came in dollars via the black market, about 150 to 175 dollars monthly. The money came through the Gaziantep headquarters in Turkey. The delivery of the pick-up trucks came twice; one time in 2015 (during the rise of ISIS), and also ambulances were delivered. The second time: nine fire trucks were delivered in 2017. They arrived via Jordan.

4. Boxes with all sorts of chemical materials were found in Garz , where there was a so-called prison, which was actually a base of the FSA, Jahbat-al-Nusra, Al-Queda, ISIS and the White Helmets. All the boxes were labeled with the address of the British Embassy in Jordan. According to the witnesses in the video, their White Helmets office was in the same building as Jahbat-al-Nusra and opposite the street was the office of ISIS.

The assignment of the White Helmets team was to make videos, especially of buildings destroyed by rockets. There they had to collect as much "proof" as possible to send to Western media.. They also had to organize demonstrations with “anti-regime" slogans. The General Administration, their headquarters in Gaziantep, Turkey, gave the direct orders. The White Helmets were recognized by Jahbat- al -Nusra as soldiers of the revolution.

On August 2, 2016, dozens of Syrian soldiers died in Aleppo due to a chemical gas attack, which later turned out to be aluminum phosphate from a home-made laboratory in Aleppo discovered by Anna Crew. They used the forbidden mustard gas in Maarat Um Hosh, which was given little to no attention in the Western media.

Conclusion

At the start of Operation Basalt by the Syrian Army, the terrorists knew they had no chance and fled from Quneitra to Idlib or, what turned out to be the most striking part of the documentary for me, they were offered to flee through Israel, the biggest enemy of Syria. Most of the native White Helmets refused, they didn’t want to go.

So the ones who fled to Israel were later on granted asylum in the UK, Canada, Germany and the Netherlands. Those who fled were instructed to destroy all supporting documents, also the ambulances, fire trucks, etc., the evidence. The leaders of the White Helmets, including foreigners, said to the White Helmets they had to flee because Assad would kill them. Tthey insisted that they would be going abroad and had to prepare their papers. Those without documents had to go to a “special” office were they received fake passports and papers. Israel helped them through a corridor. The majority of the so-called White Helmets who flew through the corridor were actually foreigners and members of the Fursan-al-Joulan terrorist group, who were once part of the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA), but most of them belonged to ISIS or Jahbat- al-Nusra.

On 21 July, 2018, it was reported that after negotiating with Israel, Fursan-al-Jolan members and two other terrorist groups joined together and called themselves the Army of the South. They were located on the southern border of Syria in the demilitarized zone in order to ensure the removal of Iranian forces (Hezbollah). According to different sources, they had about 2000 members.

On 22 July, 2018, the newspaper Haaretz reported that the group coordinated the evacuation of 800 so-called White Helmets with Israel. Among them were many foreign terrorists and the two commanders of the Army of the South: Moaz Nassar and Abu Rateb. So as from July 2018, the EU, UK and Canada received a lot more terrorists, calling them White Helmets who only performed humanitarian work.

Who Shot Down Ukrainian International Airlines flight PS752?

By Ian Greenhalgh
Correspondent News Reporter in the UK

Who might have shot it down?

A VT reader offered this excellent analysis:

This was a Stinger. I am convinced.

A). MEK has smuggled MANPADs into Iran via Azerbaijan and Turkey from Libya and elsewhere. We know this.


B). The video (fortunately at night so we can analyze flame signature without light pollution) clearly shows flames from right engine destroyed at rear (look at videos of other shot down aircraft compared to those with engine fires). Importantly, The the plane is still flying and left wing still generating lift but clearly out of control. This does not happen with malfunctions or engine debris intake. Just ask Sulley Sullenberger. You can toss a 100 kg bag full of sand into an engine at full rpm and not cause this kind of damage. Plus within 15 seconds max and with reliable muscle memory (from rigorous engine out/fire training), any descent pilot would have shut off power and fuel to damaged engine and resumed flying plane. With one engine it could have maintained altitude for emergency landing


Among the plane’s passengers were :

  • 82 Iranians
  • 63 Canadians (many of Iranian origin)
  • 11 Ukrainians (two passengers and nine crew)
  • 10 Swedish people
  • 4 people from Afghanistan
  • 3 from Germany
  • 3 from the United Kingdom

There appear to be holes in the outside skin of the plane.


Ukraine International Airlines Flight PS752 was a scheduled passenger flight from Tehran to Kiev. It crashed near Tehran on Wednesday 8 January 2020 carrying 176 people.



D) Stingers are designed to hit slow aircraft at low altitude. This plane was heavy and slow probably flying at 250kts when hit at 8000ft.


E) Left engine totally intact and what you would expect in crash.

UIA-752: Who Gains From Politicizing The Tragedy In Tehran?

JANUARY 10, 2020

ONE WORLD PRESS

The fact remains that the political confrontation in Venezuela has escalated with the addition of a NA composed of deputies mostly representing a narrow ideological range and a board presided by unelected Juan Guaidó, and a NA composed of deputies representing several parties whose board was elected by all deputies present. “Both” national assemblies are dominated by members who are opposed to the Maduro government and would favor regime change.

Venezuela: Leadership Of National Assembly Split Between Competing Opposition Groups

JANUARY 10, 2020

Analysis By Nino Pagliccia Venezuelan-Canadian freelance writer and activist
Contributor Global News Aruba & One World Press Agency

Last January 5, the members of the National Assembly of Venezuela elected its new leadership as mandated by the constitution. The new president of the National Assembly, Luis Parra, elected by a majority vote, will replace Juan Guaidó. He is not a Chavista nor a member of the governing party PSUV. But that didn’t seem to be anyone’s concern as it should not be in a democratic process. Except of course for Guaidó who has a lot to lose. By losing the post, he will lose his self-appointment to the presidency of the country. So, what to do? Simple. Secure your domestic and foreign supporters, create a parallel body, call it National Assembly and…proclaim yourself as president of the unconstitutional body! After all, that strategy worked a year ago in holding the whole country hostage, and that’s easy when your directive comes from the US imperial government.

That seems to be precisely what Guaidó did.

It is important to remember that when in 2015 the governing party, PSUV, lost the majority in the National Assembly, there was no cry of fraud. Instead, the right-win- dominated Assembly botched its opportunity to push their political agenda by fraudulently attempting to swear in deputies. Because of that, it was declared in contempt by the Supreme Court. Back in 2015, the NA had a single declared mandate to carry out an unconstitutional parliamentary coup against the government of Nicolas Maduro. The new board of the NA appears to promise to follow its legislative mandate within the Venezuelan constitution.

Juan Guaidó has claimed that he and his party colleagues were forcefully prevented from entering the NA building in order to vote. The dominant media has propagated this lie despite video evidence to the contrary. Only one person was stopped for not having the appropriate clearance. Others, including Guaidó, could proceed. However, Guaidó chose a misguided or calculated decision of “solidarity” not to proceed. He is heard saying, “No, no, no one else will proceed until they let him [person without clearance] in.” Some of Guaidó’s deputies had entered the NA precinct.

In a dramatic and surprising development on January 7, there have been reports that Guaidó and his deputies have taken over the NA building ousting the newly elected legislature board and its deputies. This could be seen as a coup. But it is not clear against whom the coup is directed. The elected president of the NA, Luis Parra, is not a member of the governing PSUV, so by all effects, this is not a takeover of a government-controlled legislature. Further, Parra was recently expelled by the opposition party Primero Justicia following mutual accusations of corruption with Guaidó. With this background, what we are seeing looks more like an internal struggle for power within opposition groups. The Venezuelan right-wing opposition has a long history of divisions and conflicts so this behaviour is not unusual, it’s only much more public.

In his first public declaration, Luis Parra promised to depolarise the country and the parliament by seeking non-confrontational positions in order to achieve reconciliation. He called on the president of the country Nicolás Maduro to return to the headquarters of that power and he asked the armed forces not to take sides. He also rejected any external interference and to only be accountable to Venezuelans. This puts him fully in a head-on collision course with Guaidó, who will not consider any other option except the total ousting of Maduro and his government. This determination is fully supported by the US, the EU and the so-called Lima Group who have declared their support for Guaidó.

At the time of writing, it is not clear what will follow. The fact remains that the political confrontation in Venezuela has escalated with the addition of a NA composed of deputies mostly representing a narrow ideological range and a board presided by unelected Juan Guaidó, and a NA composed of deputies representing several parties whose board was elected by all deputies present. “Both” national assemblies are dominated by members who are opposed to the Maduro government and would favor regime change.

Venezuelans who have been yearning for peace and normalcy in their country have a reason to consider themselves still held hostage by the intolerance of irreconcilable opposition groups, and not by a legitimate government that tries to overcome precisely the social and economic crisis that those groups are causing to the country aided by foreign interventions.

Ultimately, Venezuela can still count on the Constituent National Assembly, established after the 2015-2020 NA was declared in contempt, that is still the legislative body until elections for the 2020-2025 NA will take place later this year.

" Putin’s Hour Is At Hand "

By Paul Craig Roberts Geo Political Analyst
Global News Aruba

Vladimir Putin is the most impressive leader on the world stage. He survived and arose from a Russia corrupted by Washington and Israel during the Yeltsin years and reestablished Russia as a world power. He dealt successfully with American/Israeli aggression against South Ossetia and against Ukraine, incorporating at Crimea’s request the Russian province back into Mother Russia. He has tolerated endless insults and provocations from Washington and its empire without responding in kind. He is conciliatory and a peacemaker from a position of strength.

He knows that the American empire based as it is on arrogance and lies is failing economically, socially, politically, and militarily. He understands that war serves no Russian interest.


Washington’s murder of Qasem Soleimani, a great Iranian leader, indeed, one of the rare leaders in world history, has dimmed Trump’s leadership and placed the limelight on Putin. The stage is set for Putin and Russia to assume the leadership of the world.


Washington’s murder of Soleimani is a criminal act that could start World War 3 just as the Serbian murder of the Austrian Archduke set World War 1 in motion. Only Putin and Russia with China’s help can stop this war that Washington has set in motion.


Putin understood that the Washington/Israeli intended destabilization of Syria was aimed at Russia. Without warning Russia intervened, defeated the Washington financed and armed proxy forces, and restored stability to Syria.


Defeated, Washington and Israel have decided to bypass Syria and take the attack on Russia directly to Iran. The destabilization of Iran serves both Washington and Israel. For Israel Iran’s demise stops support for Hezbollah, the Lebanese militia that has twice defeated Israel’s army and prevented Israel’s occupation of southern Lebanon. For Washington Iran’s demise allows CIA-supported jihadists to bring instability into the Russian Federation.


Unless Putin submits to American and Israeli will, he has no choice but to block any Washington/Israeli attack on Iran.

The easiest and cleanest way for Putin to do this is to announce that Iran is under Russia’s protection. This protection should be formalized in a mutual defense treaty between Russia, China, and Iran, with perhaps India and Turkey as members. This is hard for Putin to do, because incompetent historians have convinced Putin that alliances are the cause of war. But an alliance such as this would prevent war. Not even the insane criminal Netanyahu and the crazed American neoconservatives would, even when completely drunk or deluded, declare war on Iran, Russia, China, and if included in the alliance India and Turkey. It would mean the death of America, Israel and any European country sufficiently stupid to participate.


If Putin is unable to free himself from the influence of incompetent historians, who in effect are serving Washington, not Russian, interests, he has other options. He can calm down Iran by giving Iran the best Russian air defense systems with Russian crews to train the Iranians and whose presence serve as a warning to Washington and Israel that an attack on Russian forces is an attack on Russia.

This done, Putin can then, not offer, but insist on mediating. This is Putin’s role as there is no other with the power, influence and objectivity to mediate.


Putin’s job is not so much to rescue Iran as to get Trump out of a losing war that would destroy Trump. Putin could set his own price. For example, Putin’s price can be the revival of the INF/START treaty, the anti-ballistic missile treaty, the removal of NATO from Russian borders. In effect, Putin is positioned to demand whatever he wants.


Iranian missiles can sink any American vessels anywhere near Iran. Chinese missiles can sink any American fleets anywhere near China. Russian missiles can sink American fleets anywhere in the world. The ability of Washington to project power in the Middle East now that everyone, Shia and Sunni and Washington’s former proxies such as ISIS, hates Americans with a passion is zero. The State Department has had to order Americans out of the Middle East. How does Washingon count as a force in the Middle East when no American is safe there?


Of course Washington is stupid in its arrogance, and Putin, China, and Iran must take this into consideration. A stupid government is capable of bringing ruin not only on itself but on others.


So there are risks for Putin. But there are also risks for Putin failing to take charge. If Washington and Israel attack Iran, which Israel will try to provoke by some false flag event as sinking an American warship and blaming Iran, Russia will be at war anyway. Better for the initiative to be in Putin’s hands. And better for the world and life on Earth for Russia to be in charge.
