Assange Judge’s Husband Runs Security Firm With Ex Head of MI6 1235

“Security Intelligence Consultancy” SC Strategy Ltd has only three directors. One is the husband of the judge in yesterday’s Assange ruling. One is the former Head of MI6, Sir John Scarlett, who is synonymous with crooked security operations and personally wrote the notorious dossier of lies on Iraqi WMD, thus causing the subsequent deaths of millions of people. One is Lord Carlile, who was notably close to protected Establishment paedophiles Greville Janner and Cyril Smith. Is the British Establishment not endlessly fascinating?

The corporate media has published no information about “Lady” Arbuthnot’s background and sinister links at all, despite the fact it is uniformly carrying her jibes at Assange as a major story. There can be no clearer example of the fact that it is the corporate media which, deliberately and systematically, spreads fake news, while bloggers get out the actual facts via social media.

To anyone to whom British corruption is not axiomatic, it appears pretty rum that the judge in the Assange case is married to a government parliamentarian and close to the security services.

“Lady” Arbuthnot’s Husband

There is some interesting background in the Mirror here. The taxpayer paid £1,200 in restaurant bills for “Lady” Arbuthnot and her husband in one long weekend jaunt to Turkey alone.

If anybody thinks the Assange case had anything to do with justice, they are very mistaken. Please read my analysis of “Lady” Arbuthnot’s judgement here.

    “SNP MP Alan Brown was told to shut up and sit down in the Commons yesterday when he tried to ask Theresa May why her MPs were allowing themselves to be bought by big money donors.”

    I tip my hat to Mr Brown for asking such a straight to the point question. Though there was no way on earth he was going to get an answer, let alone a reason as to why the British government sell themselves to the highest bidders.

          Did you bother to watch the video of the incident?

          Would you care to tell me at what point anyone used the words “shut up and sit down”?

          If the SNP moron who can’t even string together a coherent sentence wants to make accusations of improper conduct against another MP there are channels available for him to do so, Prime Minister’s Questions isn’t one of them.

    “The cure is even worse than the disease,” said Ba’al the other day.

    I think the people of Iraq and Libya might take issue with that. These states, once replete with all the trappings and amenities of a modern society, are at the point of collapse. Have you forgotten shock and awe? Fallujah? Mosul? Raqqa? Syria was meant to be the next state destroyed. The Empire is a self-perpetuating murder machine. Whatever its faults – and there are many – Russia is not. That makes it better than the Empire, however marginal a distinction that may be.

    I think that is the important point to make here. Since the neocons got their claws into the White House in 1998, the murder machine has gone into overdrive.

    Normally, I agree with most of what you say, Ba’al, but I think you have a blind spot here. This isn’t about Assad or Putin – it’s about the preservation of Syria as a functioning state, with all the stuff we take for granted.

    Here are a couple of questions for you: Do you think there are any linkages between the wars waged against Iraq, Libya and Syria? Do you think there are any commonalities in terms of how those regime-change actions were engineered, justified and prosecuted?

    Finally, putting the rest of the corporate media to shame, here is the peerless Robert Fisk on the uncomfortable facts about the “rebels” in Eastern Ghouta:

      Among many liberals, there is an understandable impulse to raise the drawbridge, to deny certain ideas access to respectable conversation, to prevent certain concepts from being ‘normalized,’” Sullivan wrote, anticipating the objection. “But the normalization has already occurred — thanks, largely, to voters across the West — and willfully blinding ourselves to the most potent political movement of the moment will not make it go away. Our job in these circumstances is not to condescend but to engage — or forfeit the politics of the moment (and the future) to reaction.”

        • Ba'al Zevul

          More on that intriguing theory –

          The new “First Amendment” is zigzagging through the streets of the law in unpredictable fashion. For example, it protects corporate management’s political use of shareholder funds, without regard to the shareholders’ wishes—even though it will likely soon forbid unions’ use of workers’ fees to support actual collective bargaining. It is destroying any limit, no matter how modest, on concentrated wealth in politics. It now empowers drug salespeople to demand practice information on doctors who’d prefer to keep it private; it limits modest state regulations on the posting of correct retail prices.

          Not long ago, a panel of the D.C. Circuit held that cigarette companies had a First Amendment right to refuse to print warning labels on their packs (mercifully reversed by the full appeals court). After the city of Seattle raised its minimum wage, a business group sued, claiming that paying higher wages would leave them less money to spend on advertising, and thus supposedly violate their First Amendment rights. That argument has failed—so far, but it makes about as much sense as some that the Supreme Court has accepted.

          More and more government regulations are being devoured by the category of “content-based regulation of speech”—and that that designation will trump any doctrine from any other area of law that might heretofore have applied.

          And, let’s face it, it would be a clever man who could decipher what Trump defines as free speech, wouldn’t it?

        • Bob Apposite

          Nonsense. The Conservatives in America are totally opposed to free speech.

          One, they have a propaganda TV station (FOX News) that interrupts Liberals mid-sentence if they even try to talk, so Liberals gave up even appearing.

          Two, they endlessly try to silence the opposition. They tell every prominent Liberal to shut up and not talk politics. From basketball players “Shut up and dribble”, to Hollywood actors (meanwhile their own President is a glorified Reality TV star), to even the kids that were victims in the recent school shooting (who Shapiro argued were too young to be rational actors and have logical opinions (meanwhile they think it’s just fine for kids the same age to buy AR15s – the weapon used to conduct the massacre in the school).

          • Bob Apposite

            And who best to represent a party living in a constructed, fake news/propaganda reality?

            Well they found themselves a Reality TV show President. (coincidence)?
            One who also has a mental disorder – Narcissism.

            Let’s be honest. Everyone else thinks these people are Crazy as all get out. That’s why Trump has to fire everyone. But Trump gets the love he never had from them, so he’s perfect for them.

            I can only assume there’s a similar relationship between Assange and his followers.

    The Edinburgh and Cardiff universities study also found that 90% of Tory supporting Leave voters think the trashing of the Good Friday Agreement would be acceptable if it was in the way of Brexit.

          But you are on record as having been completely opposed to EU membership prior to the Brexit vote (and the realisation that there was political hay to be made for the cause of Scottish independence by playing down the prospects of the UK post-Brexit).

        • Squeeth

          No, there’s never been a democratically elected government in Britain. Scotland has a county council that rules without reference to England but that isn’t reciprocated.

The text of, say, Edwin Morgan’s translation of Phedre was not immediately within the grasp of the audiences who saw the play staged. Nor indeed can most Scots even comfortably read such texts without a crib, which is why practically every work published in Lallans comes equipped with one.

    Big defeat for the Tories in Scotland. They lose the Selkirkshire by-election to Borders Council to an independent candidate. The details not given yet. But the Tories fielded two candidates in that ward in 2017 and between them got 42% of the 1st preference votes.

    No independent candidate got as much as 10% in 2017, so it’s a big thumbs down for Davidson and her Tories.

    I was just looking at some videos from the Florida school shooting, and was beginning to consider the possibiity, that the entire thing was real. It just about seemed plausible, especially as some of the kids said on live TV, that they were convinced it was a drill, as such drills are a very regular occurence (like duck and cover – 50 years ago).

    However, at the end of one of the videos taken from within the classroom according to The Daily Beast (which has now removed the video) ”The video pans to a laptop with bullet holes punched through its screen.”

    Now if you shoot a vey powerful gun at a laptop on a table what is likely to happen?

    I wondered if anyone else had noticed the effect – so I googled it – and they had.

    (The link now seems to be blocked) – but this which contains the video might work


    “Graphically placed bullet holes on a computer screen!!! Sorry, but holes that go all the way through LCD screens are black, WHITE MEANS THE CRYSTALS ARE STILL THERE, A MILLIMETER BENEATH THE GLASS!

    We are witnessing the snowflake benefit, the kids doing the psy ops are so poorly trained in everything that they cant get the most basic of the basic basic things right!!!

    Additionally, how is that computer even sitting there if it got shot by an assault rifle? Sitting there, all nice and cute like Barbara just stood up for a stretch. Anyone who has target practiced knows that when you hit something it will fly, bullets should have ripped the screen clean off (and if not that, the screen should be pushed all the way as far back as it can go,) and the computer would not be sitting pretty, it would have spun.

    If it was not for the serious implications of this, it would be absolutely great humor, and a lesson on just how far American education has fallen if the people hired to do this screwed up this badly.”

    Of course, it still could have been real, and this little bit of fakery, could have been included, to send the conspiracy nuts as mad as all the people, who actually believe all this incessant propaganda every day from the press and TV. I wouldn’t be surprised, if the Russians become convinced that all of the USA has gone completely insane, and become extremely paranoid, that they are about to be attacked with nuclear weapons by crazed zombies.

    This is a very dangerous position to be in.

    Bring back Peter Sellers and Dr. Strangelove.


    • Ba'al Zevul

      Looks more like the reflection of overhead lights to me, Tony. No, the laptop hasn’t been shot. Are you saying that the shooting was done with child method-actors ? Or it didn’t happen? Or might it just be possible that yet another reporter got yet another detail wrong in the interests of drama and sales? Occam’s Razor may help you here.

          Assange? Not my buddy, pal. More like Trump’s, and T.Rump is most certainly not my buddy. You may check my low opinion of Assange in previous threads. Please clarify the rest. I’m not sure whether you think the shooting was faked or whether the (un-shot) laptop is an instance of Trumpist media smoke-and-mirrors which Tony has fallen for.

      • Tony_0pmoc


        I have reached no conclusions, but the fact of the matter, is that the video that was published by the MSM, pans across the classroom, to a laptop, and is described ”The video pans to a laptop with bullet holes punched through its screen.” Even the video is tagged with those words. It’s good that both you and me, can see that the laptop hasn’t been shot, so why was it described that it had been?

        Explaining it as “yet another reporter got yet another detail wrong in the interests of drama and sales?” does not really explain, what could be an amazing coincidence, of the laptop actually being in the scene, where the vast majority of people seeing it will accept the explanation given, that they are bullet holes.

        As regards, to what actually happened, I don’t know.

        Now, if interested in fakery by ITN in 1992, used to produce very powerful propaganda for war, try the following. Until yesterday, I thought such video/photographic fakery was a relatively recent phenomenen, with very few exceptions. This one really shocked me, and the evidence of fakery is overwhelming

            Stu, I think I owe you a slight apology

            At least you got the fence. It has taken me nearly 26 years, to understand that piece of the most outrageous ITN Propaganda, which resulted in my country bombing Yugoslavia to hell, where I actually have a personal interest.

            As regards, mass school shootings, where if you read what I wrote, I have yet to come to any conclusions as regards to whether or not they were faked. If indeed they were faked, and the overall motivation was to reduce the number of guns in circulation, I might actually have some sympathy with regards to that objective.

            The USA has far more guns in circulation, than it does human beings, most of who’m now seem to be terrified. However, as Glenn stated, the effect of such events is not to reduce the number of guns, but to increase them.

            I thought Ba’al already worked for the Daily Mail, or did that cretin Dan Hodges get his job? I don’t know how his Mum can live with him.

        If these mass shootings are all hoaxes, as Tony appears to contend every single time, one would have to ask – who benefits?

        The answer would appear to be the NRA, gun-nuts, and the arms manufacturing industry. Because whenever a mass shooting occurs, gun sales go through the roof. Donations to the NRA goes up, as does its membership, and contributions to political representatives ensures that no gun legislation will ever take place.

        Curiously enough, btw, nobody seems interested in the multiple school shootings which have already occurred this year. Not enough dead? Not glamorous enough for them? Not enough news headlines for them? Who knows.

        So perhaps Tony Opmoc (and all the cruel deniers of the Sandy Hook massacre etc.) think the NRA is behind it all? After all, who else would possibly guarantee such rich rewards?

        • Tony_0pmoc


          “If these mass shootings are all hoaxes, as Tony appears to contend every single time”

          No, I don’t. I haven’t in this case either.

          “So perhaps Tony Opmoc (and all the cruel deniers of the Sandy Hook massacre etc.)”

          I have never taken any interest in Sandy Hook. I have never investigated it, and so far as I am aware, never even made a comment on it.

          However, the fact that some of these terrorist events, contain photographic evidence of fakery, is overwhelming, if you go to the bother of examing the original uncensored photography in detail. That however, does not mean, that the event was very real indeed, and innocent people were viciously killed, quite possibly at the same time as some of the scenes were faked.

          Regardless of whether Terrorist events, were faked or not, the effect on populations is the same. If and when the criminals responsible for them are brought to justice, they should all be treated as if they were real. The criminals excuse in court that – well no one died, we faked the entire thing, simply is not acceptable. these people are as guily as hell, and that includes many British supposed journalists who are with their full knowledge, producing propaganda for war. That results in many hundreds of thousands of innocent people being killed and mutilated.

          If you believe everything you see on TV, or read in the media, then it is highly likely you cannot face the truth, of what is really going on, and how evil, much of our culture has become. It may feel more comfortable to you to believe that some other evil remote culture is responsible for all these atrocities, but the truth of the matter, is that most of this evil is down to our culture.

          Or do you think Tony Blair is innocent?

          ‘Parents Catch FBI in Plot to Force Mentally Ill Son to Be a Right Wing Terrorist’:

          ‘….David Steele, a 20-year Marine Corps intelligence officer, the second-highest-ranking civilian in the U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence, and former CIA clandestine services case officer, had this to say about
          these most unscrupulous operations:
          ‘Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our own security services. In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI. In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism. We’ve become a lunatic asylum.’
          ‘New Order of Barbarians’:

              There was a discussion of terrorism. Terrorism would be used widely in Europe and in other parts of the world. Terrorism at that time was thought would not be necessary in the United States. It could become necessary in the United States if the United States did not move rapidly enough into accepting the system. But at least in the foreseeable future it was not planned. And very benignly on their part. Maybe terrorism would not be required here, but the implication being that it would be indeed used if it was necessary. Along with this came a bit of a scolding that Americans had had it too good anyway and just a little bit of terrorism would help convince Americans that the world is indeed a dangerous place … or can be if we don’t relinquish control to the proper authorities…..’
          (False Flag terrorism was in use by CIA-founded groups in Europe in 1969 (Operation Gladio), and had been planned for the US in the ‘Operation Northwoods’ plans back in 1962, which were never carried out as JFK nixed the proposed operation).

          The above is from tape II transcript. Tapes one and two were recorded in 1988 and are the recollections of Dr. Lawrence Dunegan regarding a lecture he attended on March 20, 1969 at a meeting of the Pittsburgh Pediatric Society.
          The whole 3-tape transcript makes very interesting reading, especially that the recollections are from a prestigious meeting way back in 1969 (before a lot of the technology mentioned was generally known about, never mind common.

          Some of it matches what Nick Rockefeller told Aaron Russo in 2000, as well as lots which have now come to pass.
          I recommend every one should read the whole transcript.

        The extract says “Graphically placed”. Occam’s Razor might lead to that conclusion. A simple computer graphic.

      It’s a rum world where nothing can be taken at face value.
      What if Arbuthnot is raking sand in a studio in SW1?
      What if Donald Trump IS Hillary Clinton under a rubber mask?
      What if Kim Yong Un is underneath the Hillary Clinton rubber mask that is pretending to be Trump?

      Would it not be easier if the hard brexiteers like Fox and Johnson to fuck off to an offshore tax haven where they can import Chinese goods without duties to their hearts’ content leaving us with free movement and free trade, both of which seem to me to be very good things? Instead of all of us having to be dragged kicking and screaming into their neo-colonial, neo-imperial, neo-fascist fantasy dream?

        Boris Johnson resumes funding Al Qaida in Syria, Lord Ahmed confirms.
        Yesterday one Lord of the Realm snidely sneered that those who [ like Russia ] funded and backed violence were as bad as those who actually committed it themselves.
        Yes my Right Honourable friend, I couldn’t have put it better myself. When will Mr Johnson be resigning?

          • giyane

            The West thinks it can win control over by propaganda in the MSM.
            The last week the BBC has been continually Haw-Hawing on about massacred children who have been kept as human shields by Al Qaida, sponsored and funded by Boris Johnson.
            Russia has done well to resist this propaganda offensive. The sooner Al Qaida is removed from Syria, the sooner children will be safe again.
            David Cameron bombed Libya for Peak Oil, to keep the food and cheap manufactured products running up and down the European Union. They still want the Syrian Gas and they think they can get it through proxy war and soft BBC propaganda.

            Now the EU citizens understand how ruthless Merkel, Macrobe and May are prepared to be in order to get Gas without getting asylum seekers, they will lynch their politicians on Westminster Bridge if they steal the Gas for Europe by force. The public fully understand what their governments are up to with proxy jihadists. The fuse is lit with the UK trying to close its borders and the EU paying Erdogan to imprison the refugees. It’s only a matter of time before the methane gas from European governments consuming Muslims self-combusts.

            I suppose in another 400 years or so another Blair could make another feeble apology.

      Also there was the eyewitness who said she was walking along with the accused when they both heard the shooting start. He wasn’t carrying a gun. Not quite as blatant as Sandy Hook however, which wasn’t even a functioning school and where no death certificates were ever filed for the alleged victims.

    The Tories got 1687 votes in Selkirkshire ward in 2017. They got 1247 votes in yesterday’s by-election. The turnout was only 7% down on last year. So the Tories lost a quarter of their vote in what is one of their strongest council wards in Scotland.

  • reel guid

    In the Selkirkshire by-election, when it came time to transfer the Labour votes, more than twice as many went to the SNP as went to the Tories.

      RoS seems a little busy, RG, so may I step in for him?

      That’s a great point, reel guid, just fantastic, I loved the way you put that. Brilliant, just so spot on. Please keep it up, this is wonderful!

    Try finding out who ran the airport security at Schipol. 😉
    Published on 29 Jan 2011
    Eyewitness Kurt Haskell – who was on the flight with Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab (the attempted underwear bomber) – says he saw an American official escort Abdulmutallab through the ticketing and security areas after he was held up and questioned for not having a passport with him.

    This account of the incident is eerily similar to reports coming out of this year’s attempted attack on a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon that the suspect, Mohamed Mohamud, was set up by the FBI.

    The full interview regarding Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab:.
    Glenn Greenwald’s piece on Mohamed Mohamud (attempted Portland car bomber):

    What followed? An increased crackdown on flying. No liquids. Increase in ‘homeland security’. Increase in measures on the war on terrrrr. and so on. Mr Chertoff rules OK. He even had a link to LGC Forensics who provide pathologists for the Home Office for the Gareth Williams and Dr David Kelly cases for instance.

      Sharp Ears,

      I found Schipol completely delightful in the Year 2000, as was Amsterdam. My wife and I went there with our 9 year old daughter, whilst her older brother went to the USA with the Scout Group run from the local Methodist Church. He was not that impressed with Americans. He said most of them are extremely fat, and they march around with flags, as if they are preparing for war. They did however teach him, to shoot everything from a bow and arrow to a machine gun. The local Methodist Church, in England, hadn’t even started on a bow and arrow. they were still on marsh mallows round the camp fire, and silly jokes.

      I don’t know who was running security then, but found it funny, to see one of the security guards snogging his girlfriend in the smoking area outside. I can’t remember if he had a gun. I think he did, but he didn’t use it, whilst I was there.

      However if you want to do the full story of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, I can thoroughly recommend Joe Quinn of I don’t always agree with him, but on this, he was spot on, went into tremendous detail, and researched and wrote the entire thing, within a few days of the event.

      “The Underwear Bomber – Crushing Freedom With Phony Arab Terrorism”

      We may go on the train next time.

    Today (23 February 2018) Iain McNicol stood down as General Secretary of the Labour Party. Certainly many in Momentum will be pleased to hear this. It is understood that while he did his job, eventually supporting Jeremy Corbyn in a legal contest over Corbyn’s right to be on the ballot paper for Party Leader, he was thought to have been uncomfortable in his support. I thank him for standing down and think it is the right decision for the future of the party.

    All news is not always bad news.

    • giyane

      I am not a member of the Labour Party. and I don’t see most of their MPs as members either, just gravy-trainers out for themselves. However I do belong to Islam so I can understand how its corrupt leaders who have offended the majority its members will never be forgiven. I refer to political Islam. The Muslim Brotherhood will never be forgiven for becoming the bedfellows of the West, i.e.. becoming proxy fighters against the Muslims for the benefit of the West. Even if they repented and openly spoke the truth, they will never be forgiven for making themselves Confederates with the enemies of Islam.

      If the Muslim Brotherhoods sole intention was to drive as many Muslims as possible, and all those that belong to other faiths, from the Truth of Islam, they could not have achieved so much destruction and so much determination amongst ordinary Muslims never to submit to their Western delegated power.

      Even if the Blairites spoke complete sense, as Blair himself is now doing over Brexit, their compromised cause of neo-liberal post Thatcherism will never prevail. They did not need to do so much deliberate harm to the cause of Workers Rights and Socialism. Whatever they did do was solely for the benefit of their own power and prosperity.

      Allah says of the collaborators with the enemies of Islam, that even if our Prophet SAW forgave them, He would not forgive them. So John, even if you forgive the Blue Tories, they will never be forgiven for the harm they have done to the cause of Socialism.

  • John Goss

    The lies the west tells to vilify Russia have no depths to which the spreaders can sink. The Dutch foreign minister, Halbe Zijlstra, (hope I’ve pronounced that right) has now resigned and admitted he was lying. There are a lot more I am waiting for including admissions from the IOC. Funny but I never saw this on the BBC.

    All news is not always bad news.

  • Rob Royston

    My good lady was flicking channels on the TV there and I saw, on the BBC, a masked man in sunglasses who seemed to be very concerned about Russsian doping. Reeked of propaganda, wonder what it’s all about?

    • BrianFujisan


      yes i seen that earlier..The National had a Page on this… So Scotland Outlaws Fracking.. This will be watched Very Closely

  • Ben is becoming so pervasive I expect eventually it will buy the Pentagon ala BRAWNDO in movie Idiocracy.

  • What's going on?

    So here’s a question:

    Lady Arbuthnot’s judgement says that Assange was under house arrest for 550 days, however I make it 560 days, as Assange didn’t enter the embassy permanently until 19 August 2012. It’s bizarre that the legacy media has acted as though Assange was in there longer, but why?

  • giyane

    Really? I can’t get enough of ’em. I do find the restaurant ads and singing annoying tho’, but there’s an OFF switch and then after the awful bits the sermon resumes. Unity FM, just past Radio 4 @93.5 FM. Birmingham. Fantastic!

    Sheik Ismaeel Menk is a scholar who preaches the opposite of the catastrophic philosophy of the Muslim Brotherhood that broadcasts Unity FM. In other words he preaches against Al Qaida, Boris Johnson’s encarcerators of children to act as human shields for the USUKIS colonisation of Syria. He defends his child- molesting proxies in the House of Commons for their services to the Queen and country. .

  • What's going on?

    Has anyone else heard the rumour that Robert Mueller has just sent 3 sealed indictments to persons in the UK?

    (Nigel Farage, you OK, hun?)

  • mike

    Now the state broadcaster is not telling us that the US refuse to endorse the UN resolution on Syria because Russia insist that the head-choppers in Eastern Ghouta are disarmed !

    Eric Arthur Blair, your time is now.

  • Ben


    “In the third clip, a man can be heard exlpainng the Russian convoy was a few hundred meters away from target when the American forces raised their flag and hit the Russians with a heavy artillery barage, wiping out the first column instantly. “We got our fucking asses beat rough, the Yankees made their point,” he said. “What were they hoping for, that the Yankees are just going to fuck off?… It’s bullshit, some people can’t even be fucking ID’ed, too many people there.”

    In another of the clips, a man claims “there are about 215 fucking killed” on the Russian side.

    It has been reported that up to 300 Russians may have died in the strikes. The Kremlin initially denied all reports of Russians being involved in the incident. However, in recent days, Russia’s foreign ministry has acknowledged that “several dozen” Russians were killed or wounded.”

  • J Arther Rank

    The drum beat for war continues in todays Observer. In a piece titled Waiting for Putin and Assad to run out of people to kill, Ian Bond, ex Brit diplomat, now Director of foreign policy at the Centre for European Reform, suggests “there is a military solution” to the Syria situation– “a well planned military campaign could degrade Assad’s military capabilities”. Followed by the usual fantasy of a moderate coalition.
    It seems as if there is well planned propaganda campaign underway.

  • mike

    Funny how the corporate media never said that about Fallujah or Mosul or Sirte or Raqqa. By all accounts, tens of thousands died in the “liberation” of those cities.

    They were liberated right down to the ground by the exceptional nation.

    • SA

      Yes u agree it is always the case than when our own funded terrorists in east Ghouta Re attacked that this happens. The have been constantly shelling civilians in Damascus but of course the are ‘moderate’ rebels.
