False accusations target Assad repeatedly. The latest involves use of cluster bombs Syria's military doesn't have. Claims are they're Russian made. Moscow denies supplying any.

Human Rights Watch, BBC, and other scoundrel media falsified reports. Perhaps fake videos were used. It wouldn't be the first time. 

Destructive weapons, of course, can turn up anywhere. At issue is who's using them or responsible for planting so-called evidence of their use. Western-recruited mercenaries can be armed any way Washington wishes. 

Dirty tactics are a US specialty. So is use of illegal weapons. Depleted uranium ones irradiates all Pentagon war theaters. Media scoundrels say nothing. Subsequent cancer epidemics and other ill effects are ignored.

On October 17, retired Russian Lt. Gen. Gennady Yevstafiev told Voice of Russia he believes Turkey is playing a dangerous game. Perhaps it's for greater regional dominance, gaining EU admission, and/or special favors from Washington.

Ankara's taking great risks. "(N)body is going to care about Turkey in spite of all its contributions to the grand American design." It won't get the recognition it seeks. 

Gaining regional dominance "sooner or later (means) hav(ing) to destroy Saudi Arabia and these kingdoms of the Gulf and of course Iran. This would never happen."

Ankara officials "don't even understand to what extent they are making a tragic mistake".Instead of making peace" and cooperating politically and economically with Russia, they're going the wrong way. They hope America offers support. "This is absolutely wrong."

It has much more to lose than gain. Internally, "Turkey (could) seriously deteriorate and we could see in the future, not in a distant future, a very different Turkey on the map of the world." It may not be what Ankara wants.

Washington, EU nations, and Israel ruthlessly vilify Iran, hammer it with lawless sanctions, falsely make existential threat claims, deny its legitimate media European satellite distribution, and threaten imperial war.

Expect the worst ahead in some form because it's planned. Waging war on free expression alone shows the moral depravity of EU states.

On October 17, Press TV headlined "Ban on Iran channels driven by fear of truth: Top IRIB official." 

Deputy Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) Mohammad Sarafraz said, "They think by silencing those outlets (free alternative media), they would be able to control the flow of news and information and at the same time, cover up the events as they see fit."

"They are now facing all (sorts of) challenges. On the one hand, they face domestic threats and on the other, they fear independent entities who pose a threat to their existence. That's why they are seeking to mute them."
