So, I'm all signed up for DD306. Roll on September! I absolutely love politics, I'm one of those sad people who gets excited over topical debates, and the Grand Prix, I know that's got nothing to do with politics but I just thought I would drop it in there. I'm in the minority around here for both of those.
But anyway, back to the politics. The unfortunate thing about it is that so many people are put off because of politicians. I include myself in that, I rarely even watch the news but I suppose I'll have to start taking more of an interest in current events. Although I still keep in touch with things on line. I've found you get more 'truth' online.
Take Syria for example, has there been any mention anywhere on the mainstream news about gas pipelines across Syria? Probably not. Apparently President Assad turned down a plan for a pipeline from Qatar through Saudi Arabia and Syria to Europe and this is the real reason for the war. Isis is just a smokescreen. There is another pipeline from Iran and this is the one Assad gave the go ahead to. And Russia? They're trying to keep control of the gas fields in the Ukraine and Crimea is where the port for shipping offshore is situated as well as being another area with gas.
So, Syria is being ripped apart and it's people terrorised because the military/ industrial/corporate complex are fighting to control the gas and are trying to stop Russia and Iran benefitting.
That is why Donald Trump is so reviled by the mainstream media. The election of Donald scuppered the plans for a war with Russia and another big payday for the corps and they've been crying all over the media since. Brexit was another big blow to them but people are waking up to how we have all been manipulated and screwed over and are fighting back the only way they can, with their votes.
I also have to say, I have serious doubts about the gas attack being the work of Assad. It all seems too convenient for the 'dark' forces of the MIC complex.
