Almost impossible to know the truth . This is worth a read . Ive read a lot from both sides and I really cant decide whether the WH are goodies or baddies , so much fake stuff around.

You know what Venice that is so true. It is hard to believe anything any more. It's hard to know what is what in Syria. Everyone is killing each other. I admit a lot of the stuff I read was from Russia. There was pics of guys with white helmets on desecrating bodies and posing with severed heads but anyone could fake those I suppose.

Suppose we will only find out when they arrive here and start setting bombs off or chopping heads off.

If so, watch this video, you will recognise him ! (it doesn't show that mentioned in the video)

Venice, the Guardian is a voice piece with concepts in allegiance to West. None of their journalists have been to Syria to report, it is the same from their side of the fence as it is from the other side of those accused of propaganda and fake news. Personally I believe first hand accounts before the British press, or the Russian press, particularly as mentioned the other day with DD about the majority of the worlds media is controlled by 5 top companies or individuals. That is surely more questionable than personal accounts ?

Yes Granny and I watched Tapestry of Terror last night which beyond any single doubt matches up other white helmet members with their alter ego terrorist roles. Seems the West has been well and truly duped. Wonder how long before the first white helmet terrorist attack here?

There are no shortage of accusations against most military forces in the world - and even some charities! Because there are some incidents involving a relatively small number of people it doesn't mean the whole organisation is bad or corrupt.

I very much doubt it was a small number of people.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjTw4UEzySw


What happened out there was, the Jihadis took control of the banks, the jihadis took control of the hospitals, the jihadis took control of the schools, the jihadis took control of the post office, the jihadis took control over everything. That is why, people were frightened to go for medical help, parents stopped sending their children to school, there is no postal service to Syria, banks are closed meaning no one can get their money or be paid and so it goes on. For anyone to get money to live they had to become part of the jihadists or give their money over. Even those who were paid through organisations into their place of work, if they were working in hospitals alongside ambulance men, the money had to go through ISIS first. So you see how ISIS and others had control of those who were thought to be heroes. Now , the White Helmets were also running charities, either from this country or from within Syria. Did the money go to the people needing it ? Probably not. There are many who would have joined the White Helmets if it meant they were being paid and many of those would .I'm sure be of questionable associations.
People in Aleppo running up to when the civil war took off, were being paid NOT to go to work. Who could afford that and why ?
The plain fact is that Syria had it's Civil Defence founded many years ago. There was no reason for UK and US to introduce the White Helmets , pretending to be humanitarians when they were fully intending to overthrow Assad, just like they did Sadam Hussain. White Helmets, any no-mark Syrians put together by a military man ?

I still haven't seen any data as to when the two neighbouring headquarters were opened and closed.

Using the same logic the current German Government must be Nazi because they meet in the Reichstag???

Well, I don't think those is Aleppo (shown in video) actually closed , they were obliterated. You'd probably have to find out when Aleppo was bombed to rubble. That was probably the end of both particular HQ 's .
The opening was when the ISIS took over the school and surrounding buildings.
The Brits didn't go into Aleppo to set up this White Helmet outfit .

I’m sure they meet the requirements for asylum and would be welcome here.

Why would they be welcome here ?

In one of your comments above you said " There are no shortage of accusations against most military forces in the world " . White Helmets are not military forces. One also has to wonder how 'volunteers' can cost UK £64million , plus. Maybe it's for their uniforms , which never seem to look dirty in photographs, considering they are digging rubble and should be covered in ash and dust .

Because they meet the criteria for UK asylum plus they generally have enough money to support themselves.

You missed a bit out from the end of my criteria, I also had "and even some charities!" on the end.

There were around 3000 stipended white helmets which the the UK gave £38.4m over 6 years so that's just over £2k per helmet per year, but there were contracted services that were paid for as well. Because they volunteer for something doesn't mean they are unpaid, it means they did it out of free choice.

Dry dust doesn't stick, a good beating can get it off, in fact powder is used to clean materials in some circumstances. I sometimes vacuum clean my work clothes, its better than creating a grinding paste that not only stains but wears the washing machine seals and pump.
