This image is a composite mischief by Gus, using a brilliant cartoon by Bill Leak, before he joined the merde-och media and went downhill. In 1994, Leak used his massive skills to illustrate the 50th birthday bashing "bash" of the lovely behaviour of the Liberal (CONservative) Party: Howard killing Peacock and vice versa, Fraser like a snooty old kook, MacMahon like a baby in a high chair, Downer behaving like a beautiful pig as usual... etc.

Finding a way out of the war against Syria


by Thierry Meyssan


The White House is unable to extricate itself from the war in Syria. President Trump is hindered both by the self-proclaimed « stable state » (according to the anonymous op ed in the New York Times), which continues to pursue the Rumsfeld-Cebrowski strategy, and by the reactivated ambitions of his Israëli, French, British and Turkish allies. The logic of these interests could displace the war instead of resolving it.

There is a war being waged. Not the one in Syria or Yemen. Not the Nazis shelling the Donbass or the warlords selling slaves in Libya. Not America’s drones executing an entire garden party in Pakistan because somebody on that street might have googled “bomb components” and “American Airlines” on the same day 10 years ago. Not even between the ridiculous buffoon Trump, and the equally absurd “resistance”.
