    Come, come, come! “Freedom House” is actually “The House of Chaos”!

    It was the American sitting in Edinburgh and pretending to be a Syrian that started the Civil War in Syria (just as that other American sitting in Raleigh North Carolina has been trying to do in The Gambia for ten years now – lol!)

    Of course, anyone would welcome responsible journalism and allow it to flourish – but it is incumbent on governments to safeguard their country against US mischief. China and Russia are able to do this very well but poor countries are overwhelmed by American propaganda and end up with destructive Civil Wars.

    God save us from “Freedom” House!
