US: Russia, Syria Should Face War Crimes Probe

In the video recorded on Oct 7, John Kerry is seen talking about a hospital that was hit last night where 20 people were killed and a 100 more were injured. I am one of those people who has followed the war in Syria very closely and I have no idea which hospital or bombing this man is talking about. I did a custom google search from Oct. 5 to Oct 7 and got not hits, I also went on liveleak, Al Jazeera, msf.org etc etc and there have been no news stories that matched the incident he is describing or any hospital bombing for that matter on the 5th or 6th of October.

I don't want to call him a liar or anything but does anyone here know which story this man is talking about?

Please, do not hit the alert button if this post makes you mad or if you do not have an answer to my question. There is no name calling contained in this post, also the video is from an AP coverage of a John Kerry press conference so it cannot be flagged as kooky source. I am being very careful with my posts cos I am afraid that the alerters will come for me again just like they have tried to removed my last 4 posts on this site.

Thanks in advance.

US and EU Sanctions Are Devastating Syrian Civilians

They have resulted in a worsened humanitarian crisis and the empowerment of Assad, yet show no signs of being lifted soon, says journalist Rania Khalek

US attack on Syrian troops not an accident, definitely intentional – Assad to AP

Published on Sep 22, 2016
Syrian President Bashar Assad says that US airstrikes which killed 62 Syrian government troops were 'intentional' and they lasted for an hour. He added that the US 'does not have the will' to join Russia in fighting terrorists in Syria.

New York Times Misidentifies Aleppo Twice in Story About Gary Johnson’s Aleppo Gaffe

Libertarian presidential candidate and former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson went on MSNBC's Morning Joe today and admitted in response to a question about Aleppo, Syria, that he had no idea what "Aleppo" was. This was a pretty big mistake for someone who is likely to get millions of votes in the upcoming presidential election, so the New York Times wrote a story about it. Except that its story misidentified Aleppo.


ISIS's de facto capital is Raqqa, not Aleppo. Whoops! But the paper realized its mistake pretty quickly and changed the story. From an archive site:

Here's the problem: Aleppo is not an ISIS stronghold, either. It's a divided city that doesn't have much of an ISIS presence and is the site of heavy ongoing fighting between the Syrian government and other rebels. So the Times had to change its story again.

Ruling: Finally correct.

Meanwhile, a gentleman named Christopher Hill who was the U.S.'s ambassador to Iraq under Obama also made the Raqqa/Aleppo mistake while ostensibly having a laugh at Johnson's expense.


The funny thing about this whole hit job is that Aleppo would be much better place if the neocons now funding Wahhabi mercenaries to fight in Syria did not know what Aleppo is. But sadly for Aleppo they know what it is and have pumped in enough money, weapons and fighters to keep the war going for almost 6 years now. Now aren't we all glad that they know what Aleppo is?

Also, its not that he did not know what Aleppo is, its just that with the weird way he pronounced the city threw him off that he needed a moment to think about it.

Please stop censoring my videos about Syria. You can't keep deeming every video that is pro Syria as Kooky and hateful. Thanks

The Syria White Helmets Exposed as US UK Agents Embedded with Al Nusra and ISIS

Not neutral, very sectarian, not Syrian and definitely get funding from the US govt.

The Syria White Helmets Exposed as US UK Agents Embedded with Al Nusra and ISIS

White Helmets: Follow the Money

The White Helmets were established in March 2013, in Istanbul, Turkey, and is headed by James Le Mesurier, a British “security” specialist and ‘ex’ British military intelligence officer with an impressive track record in some of the most dubious NATO intervention theatres including Bosnia and Kosovo, as well as Iraq, Lebanon, and Palestine. Le Mesurier is a product of Britain’s elite Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, and has also been placed in a series of high-profile pasts at the United Nations, European Union, and U.K. Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

The origins of The White Helmet’s initial $300k seed funding is a little hazy, reports are contradictory but subsequent information leads us to conclude that the UK, US and the ‘Syrian Opposition’ [or Syrian National Council, parallel government backed an funded by the US, UK and allies] are connected. Logistical support has been provided and given by Turkish elite natural disaster response team, AKUT.

A further $13 million was poured into the White Helmet coffers during 2013 and this is where it gets interesting. Early reports suggest that these “donations” came from the US, UK and SNC with the previously explored connections to George Soros in the US.

However, subsequent investigations reveal that USAID has been a major shareholder in the White Helmet organization.

The website for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) claims that “our work supports long-term and equitable economic growth and advances U.S. foreign policy objectives by supporting: economic growth, agriculture and trade; global health; and, democracy, conflict prevention and humanitarian assistance.”

In a USAID report update in July 2015 it is clearly stated that they have supplied over $ 16m in assistance to the White Helmets.

Sadly, this sort of news has been considered conspiracy for the longest time but anyone who have seen the so called Friends of Syria countries must have known that the west and its middle east allies don't have the best interest of Syrians and so do the presidential candidates who still call for regime change in Syria or the involvement of uber sectarian, uber Islamist Muslim countries in solving the Syrian war
