The video speaks for itself and brings to mind the Sith Lords in Star Wars……..
Meanwhile…….the following articles completely prove that General Mattis’ claims are false and misleading. Note General Mattis’ own Freudian slip at the 8:12 mark in the video where he accidentally states “not one inch of territory has been recaptured from them, er by them.”
Syria’s al-Qaeda affiliate escapes from Canada’s terror list
Failure to list group keeps Canada in line with U.S., but complicates potential prosecutions
By Evan Dyer, CBC News Posted: May 14, 2017
The Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, currently calling itself Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), has succeeded in getting itself off Canada’s list of designated terrorist entities following its latest identity shift. That complicates the task of prosecuting Canadians who travel to join the group, send it money or propagandize on its behalf. It also illustrates the pitfalls of Canada following the lead of the U.S. in designating terror groups.
Syrian airstrikes could help al-Qaeda
Listed terrorist entities
Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham escapes being listed at a time when it is absorbing other jihadi groups and attracting more recruits, even as the Islamic State retreats on multiple fronts. HTS has a history of renaming itself and altering its structure to confuse outsiders, and the Syrian population, about its true affiliations. But until now, few observers have accepted its claims to have distanced itself from its parent organization.
Bin Laden’s squabbling offspring
Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (the Organization for Conquest in the Levant) began life as an expeditionary force called Jabhat al-Nusra (the Support Front), despatched into Syria in 2011 by the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, now “caliph” of the Islamic State (ISIS). Jabhat al-Nusra was led by Syrian jihadist Abu Mohammad al-Jawlani.

Meanwhile, the Russian government is pointing out that the US government completely misrepresented the truth about the recent strikes against a Syrian defense forces unit on May 18th, 2017.
“US is using terrorists to fight Syrian government”: Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov
The new strike by the US Air Force in Syria confirms Washington’s intention to use the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist group (outlawed in Russia) for the fight against Bashar Assad’s government, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told reporters on Friday. Moscow is concerned over differences in understanding the need to unite those who indeed fight on the ground and in the air against terrorists of the Islamic State and the former Jabhat al-Nusra, he said.
“We see the confirmation of an intention to use opposition and some extremists, including Jabhat al-Nusra, in the fight against the legitimate government of Syria,” Lavrov said
This comes amid Washington’s calls to stop all contacts with Assad, he said, noting that the US Congress had passed a law demanding punishment for those who cooperate with the legitimate government of Syria. “This distracts us from the Syrian settlement and the major goal of this settlement – preventing the seizure of Syria and other parts of the Middle East by terrorists,” Lavrov said. “So, what we hear about Washington’s position on Syria now is in fact coddling terrorists.”
Russia’s Foreign Ministry has no information that Washington warned Moscow before delivering an air strike on Syrian pro-government forces, Lavrov pointed out:
“I don’t know about any such warning, whatever the reason the US command made such a decision, the strike was illegitimate and unlawful. It was yet another crude violation of Syria’s sovereignty,” he stated.
Even the Independent UK is calling the US’s bluff on what really took place in the Syrian desert.
US air strikes in Syria: Why America really attacked pro-Assad militia convoy
Exclusive: For the Pentagon to suggest that this was a sideshow to Washington’s battle against Isis was to stretch the truth beyond credibility
Robert Fisk – Friday 19 May 2017
Excerpts: The Pentagon’s account of its Thursday-night air strike on pro-Assad militia forces in Syria concealed the real story of a race to the Syrian-Iraqi border by armed groups working for both the Americans and the Syrian regime. Even the targets listed by the US appear to have been wrong. Indeed, what was described by the Americans as a minor action was part of a far more important struggle between the US and the Syrian regime for control of the south-eastern frontier of Syria – a vital supply line for Iran to maintain its forces in Syria.
Although US jets were involved in Thursday’s air strikes, the forces on the ground comprised largely proxy fighters – belonging to both the American-trained ‘rebel’ opposition and to the Syrian military. If US personnel were accompanying the ‘rebel’ forces, then they were lucky that neither the Russians nor Syrian Army personnel were present on the other side. For the Pentagon to suggest that this was a sideshow to Washington’s battle against Isis was to stretch the truth beyond credibility in the Middle East. Cutting Syria off from Iraq – and thus from Iran – appears to be a far more immediate operational aim of US forces in Syria than the elimination of the Sunni “Caliphate” cult that Washington claims to be its principal enemy in the Middle East.

So General Mattis held that C-Span Pentagon press conference on May 19th where he took all the credit for wiping out ISIS in Syrian territory, the very ISIS that they have, in actuality, created and nurtured along with their Saudi, Qatari, Turkish, Israeli and Western allies, and the very credit that is, in actuality, due to the Russian, Syrian and Iranian government actions against the US proxy terrorist force………now all the credit for such is completely assimilated by Trumps general. They are completely acting as an empire and like the Borg in Star Trek, simply absorbing all that they desire regardless of the consequences, including all credit for wiping out their own proxy terrorist ruse used for the overthrow of Syria. Mattis’ use of the words ‘extraordinary efforts to avoid civilian casualties’ is pure Orwellian doublespeak, lies and propaganda. The US proxy terror groups have, of course, killed tens of thousands of innocent civilians in Syria and Libya, and the US has no concern whatsoever about avoiding civilians casualties. Its all an elaborate smoke and mirrors show.
In Libya the US has also aligned with terror groups and even placed al-Qaeda linked terrorists in power.
Dissident Voice describes well the Pentagon’s Orwellian approach to dominating the Middle East and global minds.
Orwell, Freud, and the Syrian Ruse Reality by other means by Jason Hirthler / May 18th, 2017
When applied to U.S. propaganda, the formula is revealing. To discover what your government is hiding, just reverse the media narrative. If the papers all say Russia is an imperial aggressor, it’s likely because Washington is. If the news networks say that Assad is a murderous monster, it’s likely because the groups we’re backing are. If the mainstream says Communism is a dire threat, it’s likely because capitalism is a dire threat. All of these examples are demonstrably true.
If Freud was correct, then we tend to publicly deny our greatest desires when they run counter to prevailing morality, shielding our base wishes behind a curtain of rectitude, even as we quietly pursue them. The modern instances of this in government are boundless.
Take Syria as a recent example. The media narrative states that the U.S. and its freedom-loving allies have cautiously backed a loose confederation of rebels who rose up against Syrian tyrant Bashar al-Assad in 2011. In actuality, the U.S. and its freedom-hating allies have incautiously backed a loose confederation of foreign terrorists who have been paid to overthrow the elected Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Only occasionally is the real backstory hinted at, which includes weakening Shia strongholds and destabilizing independent states in the region.
In turning the truth around to justify its war of aggression, the state and its supplicant media seized upon a handful of facts as the bedrock on which it constructed a false historical narrative. Which is what you’d expect from the Orwell-Freud model. And so…Are there elements of Syrian civil society that protested Assad in 2011? Absolutely. Are there actual Syrians fighting against Assad now? Sure. Are there elements of corruption and repression in Assad’s history? Definitely. But each of these truths are used to disguise the much larger facts of unmitigated U.S. aggression.
Upon this foundation, the typical narrative is constructed. The United States government is romanticized as a virtuous mediator concerned with supporting the freedom fighters and helping them achieve the freedoms they’ve yearned for. Assad is demonized as the autocratic mass murderer who repeatedly denies these freedoms, and tortures thousands before destroying the bodies. And the Syrian people, engine of the largest refugee crisis since World War Two, are shown as the valiant victims of the war, particularly in Aleppo, where the destruction of the city in an attempt to uproot the terrorist army is leveraged to milk as much emotional content from the war as possible and to further cement Assad’s reputation as a moral monster.
The MSM didn’t stop there. It followed with a series of attempts to further demonize Assad. A massive cache of photos purportedly detailing “regime” torture. This cache was delivered from somebody named “Caesar,” a defector not unlike the fake defector, “Curveball” from the run-up to the Iraq War. Twice false flags have been utilized to claim that the evil optometrist in Damascus has in a fit of pique demanded that innocent Syrians be sprayed with chemical weapons. Now a “crematorium” where Assad supposedly cremates all the Syrian citizens he is slaughtering (supposedly because he hates humanity so much). It doesn’t particularly matter if these stories eventually unravel when evidence is shown to be lacking. The damage is done to the psyche of readers and listeners, who absorb the media reports with the uncritical acceptance of animals entering an abattoir.

For interested parties, I figured it best to put all of these White Helmets terrorist ruse threads that I put together into this one thread so a clearer picture can be shared and ascertained by readers in regards to what the US government is “actually” currently up to regarding support for terrorists.
Great Resource: World Affairs Geopolitical site also provides additional evidence for the White Helmets Terrorist ruse and western support for terrorist groups …..
World Affairs – FALSE FLAG OR FAKE: “CHEMICAL GAS ATTACK” IN SYRIA
To sum it all up, this is Donald Trump on May 20th, 2017 right after General Mattis BS speech.
Meanwhile the White Helmets, ISIS and other terrorists are smiling in their videos because they know that the President of the US Donald Trump is dancing while waving swords with their financiers….
