For many people on the Right, the meaning of social justice can easily fit on a piece of confetti. They want to defend the nation, but ultimately care very little for the people. They still do not understand that capitalism is intrinsically globalist, because it requires the abolition of borders.

Interesting developments in the “Syrian Outpost of democracy” in Idlib. Group of “moderate opposition” “Jund al-Aqsa” attacked at least “moderate” the group “Ahrar al-sham” who is friends with “not entirely reasonable” Al-Nusra. As a result, several dozen killed on both sides (including several warlords), “Jund al-Aqsa” captured several towns from opponents and took the spoils of war – 1 IFV and a few trucks. After that, the opponents attacked the base of the “Jund al-Aqsa”.
On the backdrop of the impasse in relations between the US and Russia, was made today by Kerry bluntly accused Russia and Syria committing war crimes in Aleppo, calling for investigation of what is happening in the city. Here we can only note that the more desperate the situation of terrorists in Aleppo, the stronger the intensity of the hysteria in the West.
The De Mistura plan – a project minimize the consequences of defeat, when under the pretext of saving Eastern Aleppo, the rebels efforts of the West will have the opportunity to preserve the remnants of manpower to continue the resistance in Idlib and Hama. For Russia and Syria, this scenario is quite acceptable and has already been rolled at the time of surrender of militants in Darayya. The main thing now is not to destroy each particular action (their time will come), and to liberate the city with the minimum of death and destruction, achieving the largest victory for Assad since the beginning of the Syrian war.
Excerpts of Hillary Clinton’s remarks during paid speeches to Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Morgan Stanley, and other groups were leaked online on Friday afternoon by WikiLeaks. Clinton, who was paid upwards of $225,000 per speech, earned more than $22 million on the paid speaking circuit after resigning as secretary of state.
As for the Syrian issue, this is not the first time the US signs agreements and then breaks them. Russia’s response could clearly not be compared to the US’s official refusal to continue cooperation.
Although Putin has withdrawn Russia from the reprocessing agreement, he announced that it could be restarted, under certain conditions, including canceling all sanctions against Russia, compensating Moscow for losses resulting not only from those sanctions but from Russian’s counter-sanctions, canceling the Magnitsky Act, reducing the American military presence in NATO countries near Russia’s border, and ending the policy of confrontation with Moscow.
The counter-hegemonic bloc is built by intellectuals. Therefore, at its core should be a global revolutionary elite which rejects the “status quo” at its deepest level. In trying to understand one’s position at any point of the modern world – in any country, culture, society, social class, professional function, etc. – man sooner or later arrives at an understanding of the basic theses of hegemonic discourse in searching for deep answers to the deep questions of the social arrangement in which he lives.
“Therefore, any missile or air strikes on the territory controlled by the Syrian government will create a clear threat to Russian servicemen.”
“Russian air defense system crews are unlikely to have time to determine in a ‘straight line’ the exact flight paths of missiles and then who the warheads belong to. And all the illusions of amateurs about the existence of ‘invisible’ jets will face a disappointing reality,” Konashenkov added.
In an interview given to Denmark’s TV 2 channel, President al-Assad said that “moderate opposition” is a myth, and that reaching a political solution requires fighting terrorism, asserting that it’s not acceptable that terrorists will take control of any part of Syria.

Amid the ongoing assault and bombing, the Syrian command is still offering the militants to stop fighting and one way or another to withdraw from Aleppo, in order not to multiply the number of victims and destruction. Nevertheless, the militants do not show a tendency to surrender, still hoping that diplomatic pressure from the West forced Syria and Russia to stop the assault. Still hope that an attack from the outside will still take place and will facilitate the position of the militants in the city.
In General, what is happening now is more of a phase of deployment and building strength in the ongoing conflict, as both sides will be forced to work through various scenarios of further developments in Syria and to develop a new strategy for both moderate, and escalation scenarios.
