Not as much as I would like! I will keep looking to see if I can find the original owner. Thanks for that, I agree there are some great location shots in the movie, in fact I plan to do another piece soon about the locations used when they made the two Quiet American films and The Lover. Still- the simulations from that time period are fascinating to watch. Your email address will not be published.

The Saigon Palace Hotel in the late colonial period. The Majestic Hotel as it appeared after its remodelling of Unfortunately, the talk between Mr. President Donald Trump claimed all the over missiles struck their targets, while Syrians claim 70 were eliminated using ant-missile defensive equipment — of which a significant number were fired at various strategically vital airfields.
If the Syrian narrative is the one which reflects reality, Mr. Perhaps readers of Consortium News can help in clarifying these and other important, relevant, remaining questions while Mr. Bernstein arrange for conducting a more in-depth and thorough Part 2 of this interview.
The Syrians have remains of missiles that were shot down. Obviously it follows that not all missiles hit their target. First, the chenical attack must actually have taken place. Secondly, the US rocket attack must have done substantial damage. Thirdly, there must have been no collusion with the Russians. Absent any of those, and serious doubt has been cast on all of them, Trump has dug himself deeper into the Russiagate quagmire and can save himself only by inflicting a decisive defeat on Putin, if not in Syria, then somewhere else, Ukraine, for example.
Putin pulls out, Assad falls. Assad falls, Putin is discredited in the eyes of his elderly Soviet-generaton supporters back home and falls too. Even worse, if it turns out that Trump was the victim of the scam rather than part of it, then Putin will have humiliated the President of the US by playing a childish prank on him.
On all three counts quite the opposite is the case. Insofar as President Trump would align himself with those values, he would have our support as well. You should hope Mr. This Kenny fellow makes an appearance here from time to time, always eager to embarrass himself with his many non sequiturs and logical fallacies.
Thanks for bothering to instruct him. This Kenny cannot be instructed. Best Kenny be left to wither and die due to lack of attention after all it is attention he craves, hence his appearance here. Huge, huge mistake by Consortium News to start citing Scott Ritter.
All he has is his name, his name is going to do Consortium News far more harm than good. Please, for your own sakes, reconsider. Scott Ritter may have been someone twenty years ago. Now, he is nothing more than a convicted sex predator. Rather than insulting me, read the article. Scott Ritter was caught soliciting sex from underage girls on three separate occasions. He was given a second chance, and let go. He was caught again, given a third chance.
And he did it again. It will be a lifelong struggle for him not to re-offend. And should I therefore expect others to accept my august pronouncement as some sort of validating absolute? So, in your view, he is not guilty, regardless of admitting to the offense? His reputation is shot, like it or not. Cast your first, pure stone by all means. Guy was a virulent and unapologetic bigot, idolized by senior NAZI officials.
But whatever a person has done is NOT the sum total of who that person is! The fact that you want to make it so, makes me wonder what you are hiding. Or maybe you are just a neocon Bot sent out to cause trouble. To Scott Ritter I say Bravo! You understand how the system works and we need to hear about it. If you are commenting, then CN is successful in getting the word out! The real question is why someone with your prurient views is lurking on this site.
Deal with the message from Scott Ritter or stop wasting our time. Please people, leave this alone. Just Sayen is a troll hiding behind what obvious is a pseudonym. This is the classic ad hominem attack, which is a logical fallacy. What does conviction as a sex predator have to do with the issues raised in the article? Nothing; it has no bearing at all; therefore the attack is a fallacy wielded by a troll. What if he was a shoplifter? Would that have been a no-go as well?
Or ate dog soup like the whole of South Korea? Your argument is lame. In America, sex trumps every other possible consideration in all matters. Notice that their political enemies have tried to slander most every president irrespective of party, even Lincoln and Jefferson, with tales of a lurid past. The practice has now spread to celebrities and public figures in most every field, and note how the charge invariably is considered to delegitimize everything they have ever said or done in their field of expertise—they are summarily sacked without any due process and sent to Coventry.
Cosby can be thankful that he actually received a trial. You suggested his skill set and ability to analyze is obsolete. He was spot on accurate in What has changed since then? Further, given your rendering his ability in this field a thing of the past, what was wrong with his analysis in this interview?
Surely you can point to what is incorrect in his analysis. What are its fatal flaws? So far, all have you written is a character assassination. Yes Ritter made mistakes he paid for, and he readily acknowledges those mistakes during a very tough part of his life, but that does not diminish his expert skills in analyzing information and presenting his findings in areas of expertise.
Reposting from a sub-thread]. I would not be surprised to learn that the sting operation, and unnecessarily harsh punishment had to do with a vendetta against this whistleblower. The Western allied forced attained their goal of testing weapons notwithstanding Syria used chemical weapons or not.
Well I have to say one of my heroes is Scott Ritter the truth teller. My hope is that many of those top officials, politicians, military, Trump in the US, Britain and Italy etc. It could really happen and the truth strikes fear in the hearts of the guilty! Ritter was of soliciting minors for sex. Actually, the comment which offended you was factual. Please, take some time and review this article: Ritter had treatment while he was in prison.
Your personal denunciations do not substitute for evidence and argument on the subject. Your attempts to subvert the meaning of the article are highly inappropriate. Why would you need a Veterans Administration in a world at peace? It is all for global corporate power and profits, which is why we only have a ONE party system in this country.
Even the MSM are total tools of the same team! Iwasjustthinking, exactly the tactics used to discredit purveyors of inconvenient information. I was planning to mention that the same tactic was used to discredit him regarding Iraq.
Just Sayen, and you said it plenty of time, no? Consortium News is fighting a good fight, but this is not the way to do it. Ritter may bring will be offset by the fact that every reader can do a background check in 30 seconds. They are making a huge, huge mistake by dealing with Mr. I hope your comment is not censored. Assange is also not pure from your perspective. You should see that: So the question is: He should find explanations for all that….
Are you aware that Bellingcat is a former salesperson of ladies underwear, which is his only reliable expertise, and that he is a darling of the Russophobic Atlantic Council? After being ridiculed by the professionals in the US and UK, Bellingcat remains an important figure for hasbarists — for obvious reasons. It has been shown that bombing was occuring and a large dust cloud was choking civilians hiding in cellars.
People went to get treatment and were suddenly caught up in a fake alarm started by White Helmets screaming gas attack and spraying them with water and taking pictures. Unfortunately casualties are a fact of everyday life and amassing a pile of bodies would not be difficult.
Lots of pictures and videos showing the truth have been posted. Doctors have been interviewed. No one witnessed a chemical attack. Scott Ritter is one of my heroes, because he stood up for the truth while under enormous pressure to lie. Would you leave an ex-convict, a man with multiple convictions for soliciting minors for sex, alone with a year old girl? You are such an obvious hasbarist that your awkward propaganda hurts your cause. This is your people: And robjira also raises a valid question, which you have so far not answered; have you now, or have you ever found it hard to type with socks on your hands?
Its pathetic to keep posting your conflation. How does a convicted sex offender automatically get labelled as a liar on fake chemical attacks? The two are not related. How much are you being paid to troll? Can I get a job like that? Is Assad Good or bad? Love to hear some comments Clip: Particularly considering that your artificial and warmongering state of Israel is an apartheid theocracy.
It reminds me the same argument the west blamed Late Saddam and attacked the country Whenever US,UK,France say something about Arab world you should first the doubt their malicious intention before start believing it. It is the western powers are creating all trouble in the world. This is what should be played or voiced of MSM, 60 minutes ete etc….
If you saw the Syrians who appeared before the OPCW telling their obviously honest story and then heard the MSM evil media say there accounts were fake you would understand this. Perhaps what the Russians and Syrian government should do is stage a fake gas attack of their own and see what the West has to say about it. Yet, even if such a film were to be made and the kids later were seen having a party, the MSM would just say it happened.
From the owners to everyone working for them their job is to transmit without question the lies given to them by our government, which is controlled by the deep state. At last we can see USA is waking up to their corruption in the white house media and some senators. Meanwhile,they could lead to a fatal war with a nuclear adversary. Further to my post about Robert Fisk, I should add that we in Canada are not much better off than USians when it comes to honest media.
We have a public broadcaster, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, but I have tried in vain to persuade them to look at alternative news and informed opinion sources. The CBC and the commercial broadcasters in competition with them all spout absurd propaganda concerning Syria, Russia, Ukraine, Iran and elsewhere. That is why an unrepentant representative of a collaborationist family can continue to serve as external affairs minister with only very limited concern about this fact.
He was supposed to be a refreshing Liberal antidote to the Conservative Harper whom the Bushies had recruited to the side of savage neoconservative foreign policy and ruinous neoliberal fiscal policy. Trudeau has joined right in on the rigorous Russophrenia ginned up by Obomber. His last name might as well be Clinton. Harper ultimately led or allowed Canada into the same boat and Trudeau seems complacent to go down with that ship. Back during the Bush administration, many of us American liberals used to praise Canada for not allowing the light of true freedom and democracy to be extinguished in North America.
I find myself viewing Trudeau as the same fraudulent disappointment I did Obama. What might I have wrong in my take? His interest in the problem of time led him to publish an extended essay in under the title of Man and Time Aldus published this as a companion to Carl Jung 's Man and His Symbols.
In this book he explored in depth various theories and beliefs about time as well as his own research and unique conclusions, including an analysis of the phenomenon of precognitive dreaming , based in part on a broad sampling of experiences gathered from the British public, who responded enthusiastically to a televised appeal he made while being interviewed in on the BBC programme, Monitor.
