I've been following Syria very closely for a long time now. It is always dangerous, but at the moment is seems particularly dangerous. Mainstream media reporting is all one voice against Assad, and Putin, and Iran, and Hezbollah. Here are some sources from the other side if you are interested and these aren't already on your radar. Are they "Russian trolls" spreading "fake news" or is there another side to the story where the U.S. isn't so "exceptional"?
And here's a longer Elijah Magnier piece on the danger of the current extremely dangerous situation in Syria:
The superpowers are on the verge of the abyss, so the danger of falling into a war of cosmic proposition is no longer confined to the imagination or merely a sensational part of unrealistic calculations.
