Summary

A recent poll carried out by France’s Le Figaro newspaper has indicated that at least 72 percent of respondents want Syrian President Bashar Assad to remain in power.

Disproof

The result of the “poll” cannot be generalized since it was a “Friday online poll” by Le Figaro, which was not representative of the French public. For example, by way of contrast in a survey of 1,103 French people carried out by pollster BVA, 55 percent said they would support French action in Syria compared to 64 percent who were against in 2013. reut.rs/1SvGhU6,

The migration crisis diverts attention from “American invasion” of the Baltic states and Poland. The American forces will swarm the European side of the Russian border.

Disproof

Although new NATO outposts will be or already was established in Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Romania and Bulgaria, those will host only a few dozen military personnel. For the alliance, the new outposts are meant to establish a NATO presence without violating its 1997 promise not to permanently station troops on Russia’s borders. on.wsj.com/1OccNa0,
