Yet another dangerous incident has played out between American and Russian forces operating in Syria in what appears a series of standoffs near key oil installations since Saturday. “This is the third incident that occurred within a week,” one local reporter told VOA in an alarming report.
Days ago we reported on the first incident involving a US convoy blocking a Russian convoy on a highway near the town of Rmelan, after the Americans were apparently concerned the Russians were going to enter an oil field, which the US administration says it has “secured”.

Yesterday, a former engineer and ballistics expert with the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) delivered testimony via video link to an audience at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), accusing the chemical weapons watchdog of intentionally burying exculpatory evidence from its Fact Finding Mission (FFM) report – evidence which would have exonerated the Syria government in an alleged chemical weapons incident in Douma, Syria, in April 7, 2018.

As billionaires meet in Davos to push their green bubble, which would bail them out while destroying what’s left of an industrial economy in the west and likely condemn several billions to death, the Federal Reserve has now decided it must pour tens of billions of dollars to bail out hedge funds directly. This is occurring as the impeachment trial of Donald Trump proceeds in the U.S. Senate.
