VIDEO 1 What I Learned From the Panama Papers SHOW NOTES AND MP3: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=18320 The Panama Papers are out and the Panama Papers propaganda is out right along with it. So why does this new mega-leak seemingly only expose those in the State Department crosshairs or expendable others and not a single prominent American politician or businessman? And what does this have to do with the OECD's plan for a global taxation grid? Find out more in today's Thought For The Day with James Corbett.
VIDEO 2 Russia’s withdrawal from Syria explained
Support CaspianReport through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CaspianReport BAKU - As abruptly as Russia began its military campaign in Syria nearly six months ago, President Putin has ordered the withdrawal of Russian military forces from the country. The President announced that the Russian military had accomplished their mission in Syria and that the estimated 3.000 to 6.000 Russian troops are to withdraw from the country. The process will take about 5 months. However, Putin is not completely abandoning al-Assad. The S-400 surface-to-air missile system, a number of military advisers and as many as two battalions or about 800 servicemen will remain in Syria, spread over two locations. Meaning, Russian forces will remain operational in the Bassel al-Assad air base in Latakia and the naval facility in Tartus. This unexpected move has many wondering why. Especially since for months, the Russian forces, backed by warplanes, missiles, and artillery pieces, have bolstered the al-Assad government. The opposition forces have been pushed back, and ISIS is weaker than it was a few months ago. Russia, together with Iran, have turned around the Syrian battlespace. For the first time, in a long time, al-Assad is gaining the upper hand. However, the rebel forces are not yet defeated, and a Russian withdrawal means a setback for al-Assad. So how does Putin’s withdrawal from Syria fit in the geopolitical grand design of Russia?
