SYRIA’S WAR: CONVOLUTED AND COMPLICATED

Syria has been at the forefront of the news for several years.

We know about the war raging within its borders.

We have seen the many refugees leaving and running into uncertain conditions about their travels and their eventual destination.

This week, the situation attracted a huge spotlight due to the launching of Tomahawk missiles, early Friday, April 7, by the United States on a base in western Syria that the United States says was used to launch Tuesday’s chemical attack, April 4, which left nearly 100 people dead and hundreds more injured.

The video explains the many details, factions, alliances and ‘players’.

Take a look.

Ezra Klein brings you a video that starts where all good videos of this type start: from the beginning of the conflict so as to understand how it has morphed beyond its original intent.

After four-plus years of fighting, Syria’s war has killed at least 250,000 people and displaced 12 million people. And, though it started as a civil war, it’s become much more than that.

It’s a proxy war that has divided much of the Middle East, and has drawn in both Russia and the United States.

To understand how Syria got to this place, it helps to start at the beginning and watch it unfold.

THE WEEK

1. Senate votes to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court
The Senate on Friday voted to confirm President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, after Republicans voted Thursdayto end the filibuster. Gorsuch was confirmed in a 54-45 vote, with all present Republicans voting in the affirmative alongside three Democrats: Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Joe Manchin (W.Va.), and Joe Donnelly (Ind.). This addition to the bench restores the Supreme Court to nine members for the first time since the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February of 2016. Gorsuch is expected to join the judges April 17 for the end of the 2016-2017 session, and he could be a deciding vote if the court considers the constitutionality of President Trump’s executive order on travel from six majority-Muslim countries.

Something to think about …. “I’m the king of the world! …. Feel the Love …. “!!

FEEL THE LOVE

I’M THE KING OF THE WORLD

This line is spoken by Jack Dawson, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, in the film Titanic, directed by James Cameron (1997).

On the prow of the Titanic, third-class (and therefore destined to die) passenger Jack Dawson experiences one of the best moments of his life (at least until he gets to smooch Kate Winslet).

In a fit of ecstasy, he shouts “I’m the king of the world!” giving Titanic, a small independent film you may have seen, the catchphrase it so desperately needed.

A Classic, A Capella …. “Pentatonix: Bohemian Rhapsody …. MAGNIFICO …. “!!

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY

Bohemian Rhapsody” is a song by the British rock band Queen. It was written by Freddie Mercury for the band’s 1975 album A Night at the Opera.

It is a six-minute suite, consisting of several sections without a chorus: an intro, a ballad segment, an operatic passage, a hard rock part and a reflective coda.

The song is a more accessible take on the 1970’s progressive rock genre. It was reportedly the most expensive single ever made at the time of its release, though the exact cost of production cannot be determined.
