Dear Readers,

More than ever, Global Research needs your support. Our task as an independent media is to “Battle the Lie”.

“Lying” in mainstream journalism has become the “new normal”: mainstream journalists are pressured to comply. Some journalists refuse.

Lies, distortions and omissions are part of a multibillion dollar propaganda operation which sustains the “war narrative”.

While “Truth” is a powerful instrument, “the Lie” is generously funded by the lobby groups and corporate charities. And that is why we need the support of our readers.

When the Lie becomes the Truth, there is no turning backwards. 

Support Global Research.

Chemical Attack Accusations ‘Fake’: Bashar Al-Assad Interview

By Bashar al Assad and Alexis Papachelas, May 13, 2018

I think maybe the only mission accomplished was when they helped ISIS escape from Raqqa, when they helped them, and it was proven by video, and under their cover. The leaders of ISIS escaped Raqqa, going toward Deir ez-Zor just to fight the Syrian Army. The other mission accomplished was when they attacked the Syrian Army at the end of 2016 in the area of Deir ez-Zor when ISIS was surrounding Deir ez-Zor, and the only force was the Syrian Army.

By Andrew Korybko, May 13, 2018

The Putin-Netanyahu Summit on Victory Day really did change everything, and Russia is no longer shy about showing the world its desire to “balance” “Israel” and Iran in Syria.

Israel Baits the Hook. Will Syria Bite?

By Tony Cartalucci, May 13, 2018

Israel has repeatedly struck Syria with missiles and rockets – the most recent exchange taking place after Israel claims “Iranian rockets” struck positions the Israeli military is illegally occupying in Syria’s Golan Heights.

The Summer of War and Chaos: US-Israel Plan to Balkanize the Middle East

By Timothy Alexander Guzman, May 12, 2018

Israel used a false-flag tactic to justify a military strike in Syria claiming that it was the Iranians who fired the missiles at the Golan Heights  in the first place. Israel clearly wants a war with Syria and their biggest obstacle to hegemonic power in the Middle East, Iran with Washington’s help of course. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held the “Iran Lied” presentation in Tel-Aviv on Iran’s alleged secret nuclear weapons activity.

Iran Breaks the Rules of Engagement: Israel Takes Its Revenge, and Syria and Iran Impose the Golan Equation

By Elijah J. Magnier, May 12, 2018

Israel hits Syrian and Iranian objectives and weapons warehouses again (evacuated weeks before) for the fourth time in a month. 28 Israeli jets participated in the biggest attack since 1974. Tel Aviv informed the Russian leadership of its intentions without succeeding in stopping the Syrian leadership from responding. Actually, what is new is the location where Damascus decided to hit back: the occupied Golan Heights (20 rockets were fired at Israeli military positions).

Iran – Trump’s Broken Deal – Maneuver to War?

By Peter Koenig, May 12, 2018

From the very beginning, way into Trump’s Presidential Campaign, he was against the deal. It was a bad deal, “the worst Obama could have made” – he always repeated himself, without ever saying what was bad about it, nor did he reveal who was the “bad-deal whisperer”, who for once didn’t get across to Obama with his unreasonable requests.
