“I would contend your opinion that Assad will win eventually if left to his own devices. Firstly, without Russian assistance,”

“Do not think of RT as a credible source.”

You’re confusing a source with an outlet. RT is an outlet, John Pilger is a source. Pilger has no affiliation with the Russian government; he’s an award-winning Australian journalist. I didn’t cite RT, I cited Pilger, who was televised being interviewed on RT.

I write about the end of illusions.
