“The police have yet to confirm how James Mesurier died, but he is believed to have fallen from the balcony of his apartment in the Turkish city at dawn on Monday.”

1. Killing people to kill the real narrative - passtime of psychopaths everywhere

The Syrians ran the narrative that the white helmits were terrorists. Did the russians too?

3. It's very much a Russian narrative.

Basically Assad's whole playbook is Russian. People who parrot it (e.g., Tulsi Gabbard, Max Blumenthal, etc.) are revealing themselves as Putin's useful tools at best, paid propagandists at worst.

An underreported phenomenon, is the role of the Syrian civil war and pro-Assadism in crystalizing the red-brown alliance. For a pack of putative leftists, Syria has been the fulcrum that's put them fully in line with international fascism and white supremacy.
