Above you can watch an interview with me on RT on the western double standards towards terrorism in Syria. More here.  Just imagine the reaction from Clinton, Hague and co if the carnage we witnessed yesterday had happened in Riyadh or Tel Aviv?

I'm having a hard time coming up with a more severe judgement on a nation than civil war.
