Syrian Army recaptures rebel-held areas in Homs ~ link ~ What is happening is that after trying to honor the UN ceasefire and having no success in the so-called 'rebels' returning the favor, the Syrian Government is now re-engaging the foreign mercenaries in force-on-force military engagements. This will be bloody. But Syria has the support of Russia and China and other nations and it is Syrian land and Syrian people that are being attacked and they intend to do what they have to to wipe out the foreign mercenaries. They have had success in this before and it was a Western scam that imposed the UN Truce on them, in order to save the 'rebel' offensive from destruction by the Syrian Army. Now, after having given the mercenaries 24 hours to honor the Truce without success, Assad is sending the full force of his army after them. This means that the US/UK/France/Turkey/Israel/GCC foreign mercenaries are in big trouble. Hence, the push by the globalist/Zionist mainstream news media, to paint Assad as a monster sending goons to kill women and children. The 'West' has to send NATO military forces in soon or the war will be lost, so the hype is to send troops in "to save the people"/etc. Russia and China will not just stand by and let NATO troops invade sovereign Syria. So we are in a very dangerous place because the globalists want their World War III to usher in their long-sought New World Order and the Netanyahu nuts want their regional war to gain ever more land for a Greater Israel.

As more people fell victim to escalating conflicts in the country, the UN observer mission expressed its "deep concerns" over the latest deadly clashes and again asked all parties to exercise maximum restraint.
Syria's pro-government media outlets described the recapture of Khalidieh and Bab Sba'a by the government forces as a sign that "it has become more impatient with the bold and brazen attacks by armed rebels."
Syria NOT in Civil War but fighting foreign mercenaries ~ link ~ The 'West' wants to call the horror that is happening in Syria a 'Civil War'. That puts both sides as being Syrian in nature and that is a lie! The reality is that the so-called 'rebels' are overwhelming foreign mercenaries paid for by the GCC nations, controlled/led/armed/supported by the US/UK/France/Israel/Turkey/GCC. The reality is that the Assad regime has broad support in Syria and the 'rebels' do not. This is a case of aggression by the globalists and Netanyahu Zionists. Stirling
Despite Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg's decision that Liberal Democrat MPs would abstain, Conservatives easily saw off the challenge by a majority of 290 to 252. The Liberal Democrats refused to support David Cameron, the Prime Minister
This measure, which has been strongly pushed by the Organic Consumers Association, the Institute for Responsible Technology, and a large number of dedicated volunteers and donors, would require genetically engineered ingredients to be indicated on food labels. This is an honest labeling issue that would allow consumers to make informed decisions about what they choose to purchase and consume.
I remember last year when hundreds of dolphins washed up on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico states. Those stories went away fast.
A mixture of natural resin and turmeric oil, curcumin and the science behind its effects on the body continue to captivate the attention of scientists who have unveiled quite a bit about its healing capacities. Though it has long been used in traditional medicine, scientists have only recently within the past several decades uncovered the specifics of how curcumin works in the body to prevent and treat disease.
The result of a study published in the British Medical Journal shows that dark chocolate consumption can reduce cardiovascular events, such as heart attack and stroke, in people with metabolic syndrome (physical biomarkers that significantly increase the risk of developing heart disease and diabetes). Past studies have suggested that eating small amounts of dark chocolate (containing at least 60 percent cocoa solids) provides short-term heart protective effects. Australian researchers wanted to further determine if dark chocolate could provide long term benefits in an at-risk population.
