Many Syrians will be celebrating what is such a strategic and symbolic victory in the quest to reclaim their country; even if much of Western media is treating Old Aleppo's liberation as a tragedy. While the entirety of rebel-held territory isn’t yet completely regained in Eastern Aleppo, it seems likely to be a matter of time. And the symbolic and cultural importance of recapturing the Old City – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which has suffered massive damage and destruction in the course of the war – cannot be underestimated. What really is uncertain is how this all ends. If Damascus is in a position in the very near future to be able to declare ‘victory’ in Syria or to declare the war over, will foreign governments and agencies finally back off, celebrate the end of the fighting and seek to come to terms with President Assad? Or will we simply see an outright refusal to accept the outcome?

This week the SUNDAY WIRE broadcasts LIVE on ACR this week with host Patrick Henningsen, covering the top stories in the US, Europe and internationally. It’s becoming more clear by the day that Democrat Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda is a fast-track to the World Economic Forum (WEF)’s “Great Reset” agenda, but this is being backed out by the corporate mainstream media. Does a Trump Presidency and his election fraud challenge stand in opposition to this? In first hour we’ll connect with a very special guest Cory Morningstar, editor of The Wrong Kind of Green, and The Art of Annihilation, to discuss the current global power grab going on under the guise of COVID-19, steered by the unelected oligarch’s confab in the WEF, whose agenda has already infiltrated government policy in US, Canada, UK and Europe. All this and much, more. Enjoy the show…
