I recommend that people read this full account of the US/Trump stance by Professor Chossudovsky, editor of Global Research. It contains many facts which will never be given by the most corrupt western 'media'. You have to go on line to find any truths -
Quote re US/UK air attacks within Syrian and Iraqi air space
'The air raids were intended to destroy the economic infrastructure of Iraq and Syria.'
I add my amateur assessment of the hair trigger for WW3 in the Persian Gulf as of 14-06-19, published in Global Research

Primary addressees - Mr Chris Hart -Head of Development Management and Mr Kevin Bishop - Chief Executive DNPA
Dear Mr Hart,
The delegated decision to allow this application was relayed to me by Mrs Helen Cock. Attached. As an interested party who has made cogent objections to this process, I would expect the courtesy of being informed directly.
I am very aware this is not a 'planning' matter, but at a stroke the privacy of my wife and me, and of guests, will be the less when in our north facing rooms, both by day and night. The value of our property has been lessened by an amount that cannot be measured. It puts us in the shoes of the couple who bought this Colt bungalow about 40 years ago. It had lain unused. The retired thatcher and his artistic wife had to fight their way up a drive overwhelmed by brambles and seeded trees. They set to work with their daughter and her partner. They tamed the large garden and enhanced it greatly, including excellent stone masonry. We can put ourselves in the shoes of Mr and Mrs Hodges who saw apartments rising up where there had been a small dwelling with a small commercial garage run by a talented mechanic - Mr Edgecombe I believe. The Hodges planted laurel as a screen. Happily, some layered on the bank derived from excavation for the apartments, and these screen the lower storeys between the properties.
Before I comment further on the process and principle, I respectfully ask for further information. As you know, I do not have to cite the Freedom of Information Statute, all public bodies being bound to respond to proper questions within 20 days. The answers will be immediately at hand and could be given to me within a few days only.
Audio for Radio Devon via journalist Sophie Pierce whom I like, and who has interviewed me several times 11.30 10-12-19
Campaigning hard as an Independent man and mind in the constituency of Newton Abbot. Back from the woods, I had a message about 10 days ago to contact you. You have interviewed me several times, first and way back to do with the Voyage of The Dove and the Dolphin - 1-02-03. Again re my fight with good others for the life of our Community Hospitals and their vital in-patient beds. Lost - hence the third world chaos in OUR DGHs. Every day I hear stories of gross negligence.
I 'phoned the Plymouth BBC, and James recorded about 7 minutes of my forth right responses to about 6 set questions. He said 'great'. I trust he will stay in post. He said you were unsure when the whole piece would be broadcast. I have not heard. I have watched a few minutes of the Boris/Jeremy Punch and Judy show which central BBC 'editors' are keen to flog to infinity. I have seen a few excruciating clips from the third form debating society - Mrs Swinson. Britain has been lowered mostly by our politicians but ably helped by the 'media'.
Dear Mr Stride,
I have read the FCO letter with interest. The last paragraph is especially disingenuous. The correspondence is recorded on my web site - easily linked by 'googling' david halpin or https://dhalpin.infoaction.org.uk/
I asked this -
Please confirm or deny whether these two entities (Saudi Arabia and Israel) are allies of the UK - via the FCO please. And, if they are formal allies, has the current HMG plans to revise this status in the face of international law and ordinary humanity. Neither question is answered
And tell me the total value of arms sales to each entity within the last 5 years Not given, but I know that UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia has been worth c. £5 billion.
Julian Assange Likely to die in Bellmarsh Prison
Dear Mr Stride,
I assume that you have not read the account by Craig Murray when he attended the Westminster Magistrate's Court 21-10-19
You and the very large majority of MPs who are silent in this matter, are complicit in his unlawful detention and torture.
