US Bombing of Syrian Troops Would Be Illegal 23.6.2016 Truthout - All Articles
A portrait of President Bashar al-Assad on a street in Homs, Syria, March 23, 2014. (Sergey Ponomarev / The New York Times) Truthout remains a vital counterpoint to the mainstream news. Keep grassroots media thriving, make a tax-deductible donation today! In an internal "dissent channel cable," 51 State Department officers called for "targeted military strikes" against the government of Bashar al-Assad in Syria, a proposal that President Barack Obama has thus far resisted. However, were he to accept the cable's advice, he would risk a dangerous -- possibly catastrophic -- confrontation with Russia. And, such a use of military force in Syria would violate US and international law. While the cable decries "the Russian and Iranian governments' cynical and destabilizing deployment of significant military power to bolster the Assad regime," the cable calls for the United States to protect and empower "the moderate Syrian opposition," seeking to overthrow the Syrian government. However, Assad's government is ...

Trump, Guns, and Lies, Incorporated 22.6.2016 American Prospect
AP Photo/John Locher Donald Trump speaks at the Treasure Island hotel and casino, Saturday, June 18, 2016, in Las Vegas.  In the aftermath of the massacre at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, it shouldn’t surprise us that Donald J. Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, responded with a lie. Or two, depending how you measure. After all, Trump’s entire campaign is built on lies , whether about the number of undocumented immigrants (11 million, not 34 million, as Trump claims), his Democratic opponent’s position on the Second Amendment or the reaction of Jersey City Muslims to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. In fact, it could be said that Trump’s 2016 campaign began with his Big Lie in 2011, when he threw in with the birthers who claim, against copious evidence to the contrary, that Barack Obama was not born in the United States. As Latinas, Latinos, and LGBT people took on the rituals of mourning the victims of the recent attack in Florida that left 49 dead and 52 wounded at ...
