In this edition of The Debate Show below, Press TV conducts an interview with Jim W. Dean, the managing editor of the Veterans Today from Atlanta, and journalist and political commentator Richard Millett from London to discuss media reports that Russia supports US plans for the Syrian peace process.
[Editor’s Note: This British guy was a piece of work, a wind up doll for Israeli propaganda on the Syria mess. “It is all Assad’s fault, all the deaths and destruction, and everything would return to normal if he would just go away.”
When he said that the Russians coming into Syria had only made Daesh STRONGER I knew he was on somebody’s payroll. I had to mention during the show that I did not know a soul in the Intel community that would agree with his bizarre statement.
But it is always fun to debate these shills on Press TV’s The Debate as their tactics are to get as many of their talking points in as possible, as that is what they get paid for, repetition, repetition. But that is a tactic geared to your own Koolaid drinkers, not for a debate forum where people are savvy on the issues.
The air time passes quickly during these shows and input you are planning to use does not always get in. As he was puffing up the Free Syria Army as the suppressed majority of the Syrian people, I did not get in hit on the Free Syrian Council, the “opposition government in exile” so to speak.
Those folks who had been living in five star hotels in Paris and Geneva compliments of the CIA and the American taxpayers, seem to have just vanished. They might pull a few percent in an election. Western mass media was fully on board the scam that the FSA really had grass roots support.
Mass media did cover the scandal of the FSA recruits going over to Al Nusra and ISIL, for the higher pay and more fun when you with the winners, but the totally invisible political arm of the opposition, a bigger story, got no coverage at all. We know why now… Jim W. Dean ]
