Why does it take so long time to investigate in regard of chemical weapons?

Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has a simple message for the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons: Stop with the bullshit.

Speaking with journalists in Moscow on Monday, Lavrov pointed out that the OPCW has taken more than four months to ‘analyze’ chemical samples from Aleppo, which would likely implicate Syrian ‘opposition’ forces in war crimes. And surprise, surprise — the OPCW needs even more time before it can release a report.

Meanwhile, it took this prestigious organization only four days to declare that Sarin was used in the April 4 attack in Khan Sheikhun.

Lavrov is not amused:

Four months ago, together with our Syrian colleagues, we sent samples that we got from Aleppo, after it was liberated. We believe these samples are evidence of the fact that opposition armed groups used chemical weapons.

Four months later — no results. And they say they need more time.

But this other unit, that processes complaints about the Syrian regime, as we were told, released a statement several days after the Idlib incident. And that statement confirms the initial allegations, allegations by NGOs and the White Helmets, that it was Sarin. So in one case we have 4 months — nothing happens, no information is released. But in the other case the other unit issues that statement in just 4 days. But there’s no data — what laboratory was used, what were the samples like, where were they taken?

How can this be? Lavrov knows:

The mission should provide for geographical diversity. As I said, this mechanism is comprised of two units, one receives applications and complains from the Syrian government, and the other processes complaints about the Syrian government.

And both of the units are chaired by UK citizens.

Lavrov then delivers the final blow:

Jokes aside, it’s an attempt to create a distorted perspective, and then to use this distorted reality to in an attempt to avoid an inclusive dialogue and switch to regime change operations. Another regime change operation in this region.

Okay, we lied. It probably took Lavrov 45 seconds to completely demolish this fraudulent organization and its benevolent ‘investigations’.

The relations between Russia and China is on track, and have never been better.


A high official Chinese member brought to Russia this message from the Chinese officials. Before my departure, I went specially to see President Xi Jinping and asked him what he wanted to pass on to you. He told me to say that today, Chinese-Russian relations are going through their best period ever in our history.

Today, our relations are deservedly called an example of relations between great powers, characterized by cooperation and mutual benefit. Today, our relations are very solid, mature, and are distinguished by strategic cooperation and a lasting nature.

He also said that despite the serious changes in the international situation, we will continue to work with you unfailingly adhering to three constants, namely: regardless of the circumstances, we will not change our policy of deepening and developing our strategic partnership and cooperation; our policy, based on joint development and prosperity, will not change; and our joint efforts to defend peace and justice and promote cooperation in the world will not change. These were the words of President Xi Jinping.

The “serious changes in the international situation” of course refers to the change of administration in Washington, and the new administration’s attempt to make trouble between China and Russia.  President Xi Jinping in his personal message to President Putin went out of his way to say that this attempt could not succeed, and that China’s strategic partnership with Russia “will not change”.

The message is of course primarily intended for the Trump administration.  The Chinese and the Russians scarcely need to reassure each other about the depth of their relationship, which they are of course far more informed about than anyone else.  However, Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin are anxious that there should be no illusions about it in Washington.  Alas, given the chaos in Washington, it is doubtful whether anyone there is paying attention.

Western Values ​​Community

(Eckart Spoo)
“With annoyance and disrespect,” the radio reported, Brussels had responded to the decision of Athens to allow the Greek people to vote on the assumption or rejection of the conditions under which the institutions of the western community of values ​​were ready to give the over-indebted, exhausted country an intermediate loan To be granted. The government had made many concessions during weeks of negotiations, also at the expense of some social reforms that the Syriza party had won the parliamentary election.

Clear. Where would our proud capitalist empire come from when the stupid people could be talked about? It is bad enough that the Greek voters of a left-wing party have entrusted the government. And now these people want to actually do left-wing politics – as if they had forgotten the historical lesson given them by the Western community of values ​​in 1967. According to the NATO plan “Prometheus”, Fascist military forces had putsched at the time to prevent an election in which the success of the former left was to be expected. The same thing happened in Chile in 1973. The murderous regimes of Colonel Papadopoulos, Pattakos, and Johannidis, and General Pinochet caused workers to become cheaper and no longer dare to strike for their interests. Human rights lost their validity for years.

No, democracy is not one of the ‘Western values’. Let us take Egypt, where General Mubarak was pushed out of power by a democratic election. Since the Western community was displeased with the religious party behind which the majority of voters stood, the military had to putsch again. And if Washington, as the leading force of the Western community of values, holds the democratically elected President of Syria as a villain, the country will be overrun with war. Good allies are the Arab monarchs, who create cruel and German arms, under which democratic impulses can not arise.

Ukraine is now part of the western community of values, after the US has used up such youngsters as Yazenjuk and has spent five billion dollars on preparing the regime change. According to the New York Times shortly after the bloody February putsch in 2014, the rights sector was decisively involved. Now these fascists belong to the Kyiv government, and President Poroshenko, billionaire ruler of a chocolate, media and armament group, promises the Crimea, whose population votes with parliamentary and national elections (96.77 per cent) for joining the Russian Federation Has to bring into the Western community of values.

Those who are committed to the democratization of the society in which we live are committed to the worldwide acceptance of human rights and thus to a regime of injustice, such as the US has established in Guantanamo, which harasses the rulers of the free market. They can only allow democracy in the manner of US presidential elections. Clear.
