via Michael C. Ruppert: This needs confirmation which will probably be hard to find from western sources before the speech. But it will be confirmed one way or another. The sources are Russian and Iranian media. I’ll look again but I did not see any quotes attributed to a UN official. But – if true – the United Nations is beginning to take a stand against the attacks.
Counting overseas viewers [tonight’s speech] may well be the largest TV audience in history tonight. For good reason.
Russia says UN Human Rights Council has confirmed that videos of “gas attack victims” in Syria were fake.
A couple of weeks ago we highlighted the fact that declassified documents analyzed by Foreign Policy proved that the U.S. government knew about Saddam Hussein’s egregious use of chemical weapons and in fact we helped him be more effective in their deployment. Well unfortunately that’s just the tip of the American chemical weapons iceberg. From white phosphorus and depleted uranium (DU) usage in Iraq, to secret radioactive tests in poor black neighborhoods within the U.S. itself, the list is pretty horrific. While one might be able to say that this is the reality of war, then what the heck are we doing entering a civil war in a country where chemical weapons are being used that poses no threat to us?

“In Britain, the distractions of the fakery of image and identity politics have not quite succeeded. A stirring has begun, though people of conscience should hurry. The judges at Nuremberg were succinct: ‘Individual citizens have the duty to violate domestic laws to prevent crimes against peace and humanity.’ The ordinary people of Syria, and countless others, and our own self-respect, deserve nothing less now.”
Much more from our interview with Michael to come. We wanted to share this as it is relevant in timing to world events happening now.
