Stop confusing Kurdistans! Syria’s leftists must turn home to Assad

RAMIN MAZAHERI—Therefore, Syria is on the verge of peace and total victory…or major civil war: It will be decided by inter-Syrian diplomacy. Negotiations have been ongoing between the two areas for years, of course, and they are no doubt in overdrive right now.

Some of the sources used by the whore media are not just questionable, they are laughable, people and outfits that no serious editor would touch.

The organization claims to have a wide network of contacts in the region who feed their information to the head office, where it is processed and later posted on the website, Facebook and Twitter accounts.
