Mark Taliano: Why is the truth about Syria important?
MT: Why are people trying to "de-platform" you? Who is trying to de-platform you?
VB: People all aligned media, think tanks, UN agencies are trying to de-platform me because diverging views, including those of the "disappeared" Syrian people, challenge and confront their fabricated narrative that has "manufactured consent" for the US Coalition criminal aggression against Syria for nine years. The revelations provided by many independent voices exposes the corruption and corrosion of established institutions that should be ensuring world peace and who are, instead, promoting, sponsoring and enabling world instability in order to provide resource scavenging opportunities for the plutocrats who reign over us. Freedom of speech, thought and expression is being eroded and this is the principle we should all be defending or we are ALL Julian Assange tortured, oppressed by the pseudo "free world".
MT: Should Canadians believe the White Helmets? Amnesty International? Human Rights Watch?
VB: Canadians should use international law as their yardstick to determine truth, the violators of international law are their own government which is a vassal state of the US and UK. The White Helmets, AI and HRW are all compromised organisations which are sponsored and were established by the same governments as part of their smart power complex an integral and now crucial part of their hybrid war strategy which are established to infiltrate prey nation society, always on the side of the US Coalition foreign policy agenda predominantly to ensure the vilification of the target government or leader in order to provide justification for proxy or direct military intervention or economic terrorism under the guise of sanctions.
MT: When Syria wins this war, the world will be a safer place. Why?
VB: As I have explained above, the victory of Syria over global terrorism will benefit humanity. Syria has had a policy of containing these terrorist groups within Syrian borders in order to prevent the same fate befalling the EU, UK and US citizens with the inevitable return or flow of these radicalised extremist factions to those regions. Syria and her allies have adhered to international law both from a military and a diplomatic perspective, thus ensuring a stable future for mankind. Syria's victory will ensure that history is written by the targeted nation exposing the destructive hegemony of the US alliance in the region and globally.
MT: What should Canadians do to spread the truth about the war on Syria?
VB: Canadians must fight for freedom of speech and against the de-platforming of diverging views. They should join genuine anti-war movements and defend the principles of international law which have been cynically abused and abandoned by the UK, US and France on the security council.
