Hillary Clinton has rejected YET ANOTHER peace plan in Syria, this time one proposed by the Russians. She says there has to be “regime change” and a new puppet put into place to satisfy her blood-lust because Assad is still “attacking Syrians”
You would think someone as important as the secretary of state would have enough presence of mind to at least attempt to keep up with the generally accepted and widely publicized news developments that make it perfectly clear that the state forces in Syria are engaging foreign mercenaries paid for by outside forces to destabilize the country, not “Syrians”
You can’t hardly blame her because she’s been running this “humanitarian intervention” left-cover scam since Yugoslavia back under Slick Willy’s days in the office and without the illusion that Assad is deliberately killing his own people for the fun of it, all you are really left with is the fact that Hillary and Barack are simply doing their part in the “7 countries in 5 years plan” which of course is no “change” at all is it?
Over the last couple of months it’s been pretty well established even by the “established” media, that the so-called “Free Syrian Army” are nothing more than “professional jihadists” brought in from the outside to destabilize Syria (here, here, here)
There has also been a spate of various media showing things like FSA members using civilians as human shields and murdering other civilians for simply supporting the government of Syria. Not to mention other reports from witnesses who explain how the FSA is beheading Christians and others who do not share their Sharia world view.
With all this recent bad press, does it surprise anyone that they decided to spin up something different? A little retooling of the ongoing reality TV show that is the Syrian destabilization campaign?
Remember this staged photo op?
Well, there is yet another one, even more dramatic than this laughable piece of photographic marketing…
This next one purports to be of a group of FSA regulars manning a checkpoint in an unused alley for some reason when the photographer JUST HAPPENS to be there shooting a series of pics JUST AS a Syrian Army tank shell goes off RIGHT NEXT to him, thus killing the “brave” FSA terrorists.
But upon further inspection, it doesn’t take long to notice some rather odd aspects of the supposed events documented by this CHANCE photographic “evidence”
Like in the photo above where you can clearly see local residents standing around with their hands on their hips looking at the asshole pretending to be under fire in the street, in this newest piece of fake news, the real story that the photo tells is quite different than the narrative they put with it.
The series of photos and the less than moving accompanying narrative is from Tracy Sheldon over at the Global Post. It’s important to note that the Global Post is a for-profit “news” organization, founded in 2009, which won some kind of award for their “good work” helping to promote the need to bomb the shit out of Libya. They also state that they have a unique business model which makes their reporters and photographers “partners” in the profits. They have a quarter of a million Facebook followers right now.
Over at the Globalist Post they claim that the “truth as they find it” is the most important thing to report to their readers in spite of political consequences…. hmmm…. well, let’s take a look at their little photo essay and see how that holds up.
This, according to the Globalist Post, is a split second shot of a Syrian tank shell exploding in a VERY confined space between two stone walls in Syria. Now remember, Shelton is there taking the photos so he claims it was a tank because he saw it, or so he claims. But notice on the Globalist Post website, even though Shelton didn’t even seem to be knocked down by the blast in spite of the fact that he was so close, he was able to continue taking pictures and it apparently never occurred to him … to take a photo of the tank…. hmmm.
Within seconds the tank blast has already hit.

Looks more like two separate detonations to me. How bout you? Also, looks like flashbangs, not an artillery shell fired from a Syrian tank.
This is the kind of tank currently being used by the Syrian army. It is an old Soviet Era T-72
The main weapon of the T-72 is the 2A46 (D-81T) which is a 125mm/L48 smooth-bore cannon which fires and high explosive fragmentation (HEF) projectiles.
Below is one of the few videos I could find of tank shells detonating. I want you to be able to see what these things really do. The video below is of the Israeli Kalanit shell testing. It’s slightly smaller than the 125 used by the Syrian tanks, but you will get the picture. They are both high explosive rounds. The Kalanit is a better round as far as I can tell because you can set it to auto-detonate and it has more penetrating power. But again, you will clearly see, what is claimed by the Globalist Post to be a Syrian 125 mm tank round explosion in that tight confined space in the alley is nothing of the sort. It’s a staged little psyop that the Globalist Post probably got paid by the State Department to produce.
