Statement Issued By The Catholic Patriarchs Of Syria

We, the Patriarchs: John X, Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, Ignatius Aphrem II, Syrian Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, and Joseph Absi, Melkite-Greek Catholic Patriarch of Antioch, Alexandria, and Jerusalem, condemn and denounce the brutal aggression that took place this morning against our precious country Syria by the USA, France and the UK, under the allegations that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons. We raise our voices to affirm the following:

Apr 14 14:32

Assad can breathe easily

Israel is not happy.

Analysis: Fearing a Russian response, Trump, May and Macron circumscribed their strike to chemical weapons research and production facilities. This was overly cautious, as so long as the very survivability of Assad's regime is not at stake, he will not be deterred from further use of such weapons. Israel, meanwhile, has realized it can count only on itself.

Anti-Semitsm and Jewish guilt

"Tel Aviv University Kantor Centre’s 2017 Annual Report on Anti-Semitism Worldwide was released recently and there is good news: The number of recorded violent anti-Semitic incidents in 2017 fell by about 9 per cent compared to 2016, and by almost 50 per cent compared to the 2006-14 average.

"One would expect Jewish and Zionist institutions to celebrate the victory over anti-Semitsm and Jew hatred in general. This is not happening. According to the study, Jews feel more insecure...>>

The world according to UK arch-Zionist David Collier

"On 12 April I had a Twitter exchange with David Collier, the ardent Zionist activist who “reported” to the British media about the “secret” (actually, simply private) pro-Palestinian FaceBook groups that included Jeremy Corbyn along with such unsavoury characters as Paul Eisen, yours truly and others.

Pictured: Mangled ruins of Syrian chemical weapons lab destroyed by British, US and French airstrikes (23 Pics)

Webmaster addition: Remember back when Bill Clinton launched cruise missiles into Sudan to destroy a suspected chemical weapons factory (while distracting the corporate media from Monica Lewinsky's testimony to Congress)? It turned out the building was just a normal compounding pharmacy. They made things like aspirin. The owners of the pharmacy successfully sued the US, so you all not only paid for the million-a-pop cruise missiles, you got to pay to rebuild the pharmacy.!

Maybe there is an idea. Maybe the owners of all the building destroyed in Syria should sue the US government for the full replacement value of their property unless the US government can actually prove that every target hit was involved in the manufacture of chemical weapons!

Debunking 10 Lies About Syria and Assad

By Chris Kanthan

When I wrote the article about the “Most Dangerous Decade” two weeks ago, I didn’t realize that my time frame was too optimistic. What’s happening now in Syria has the potential to start WW III – numerous American, British and French aircraft carriers, submarines and fighter jets have converged just off the Syrian coast, while Russian warships and planes are scrambling to defend and retaliate.

Although Americans are starting to wake up, many people are still caught up in the mainstream narrative regarding the Syrian war...

PETER OBORNE: Calling for war again, the Neo-cons who drowned the Middle East in blood

The developments of the past days have reminded me of the movie Night Of The Living Dead. It tells how zombies come out of their graves to terrorise people.

This week, we have witnessed several zombies emerge from their political graves to demand this country goes to war with Assad.

The tragedy is, this is real life, not a Hollywood fiction.

Neo-conservatives have turned the Middle East into a charnel house for the past 15 years. I pray they don't get their way again and that wisdom prevails.

According to the mom’s post on the UrbanBaby parenting blog, the woman was upset that her daughter was enjoying a PB&J while perched in one of the store’s shopping carts. The woman “lectured” her about how the sandwich could pose a threat to someone with a peanut allergy.

DONALD TRUMP ORDERED SYRIA STRIKE BASED ON A SECRET LEGAL JUSTIFICATION EVEN CONGRESS CAN’T SEE

Trump used media reports as his justification.

ON FRIDAY NIGHT, President Trump ordered the U.S. military to conduct a bombing attack against the government of Syria without congressional authorization. How can this be constitutional, given the fact that Article I, Section 8 of America’s founding document declares that “The Congress shall have Power … To declare War”?

The deeply bizarre and alarming answer is that Trump almost certainly does have some purported legal justification provided to him by the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel — but no one else, including Congress, can read it.

Are We Over the US/UK Fomented Crisis In Syria?

Paul Craig Roberts

It appears from the very limited US missile attack, most of which were intercepted and destroyed by Syrian air defenses, that the US military prevailed over the crazed John Bolton and carefully avoided a strike that would have resulted in a Russian response. No significant Syrian site appears to have been targeted, and no Russians were endangered.

Force homeless people into institutions, Republican candidate for California governor says

Republican gubernatorial candidate Travis Allen says he'd build state-run institutions and force homeless people to live in them against their will, if necessary. "If you cannot provide a roof over your head in California, and you're a California citizen, a roof will be provided for you," Allen told The Sacramento Bee Editorial Board last week. "You will no longer be allowed to sleep out on our sidewalks, under our bridges or on the side of our freeways in California." He said public spaces shouldn't be "littered" with homeless people. He said he'd require law enforcement to aggressively enforce anti-camping and loitering laws characterized by social justice groups as criminalization of homelessness.

War is one of the most primitive and senseless manifestations of the human experience, so naturally, most sane people with families, ambitions and kind hearts want nothing to do with such things.

World War III Is Not Imminent

Russia doesn’t have to engage the U.S. to the point where World War III starts. If it understands America’s weaknesses, it can wait while we self-destruct.

The U.S. government has outmoded second generation military forces that are incapable of conducting 4GW (fourth generation warfare). The U.S. leadership is poor. It doesn’t think ahead.

The U.S. does not believe in the principles of its founding. It doesn’t believe in the self-determination of nations. These principles form a kind of social, legal and political law based upon the natural rights of the persons who get together to form by declaration a People, a territory, and a government.
