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.

Thoughts for today, #476 …. “Right Wing: you don’t get it, do you? …. “!!


RWing

THE RIGHT WING 

Seems to me the ‘right wing‘ cares more about themselves than others in every way.

They are about keeping the classes separate.

The right wing is a destructive force versus the left wing which is a constructive force.

I’m a proud progressive, liberal left-winger.

According to The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Politics, in liberal democracies, the political Right opposes socialism and social democracy.

Right-wing parties include conservatives, Christian democrats, classical liberals, nationalists and, on the far Right, racists and fascists.

The general consensus among political scientists is that “left wing” includes liberals, progressives, socialists and communists, and the “right wing” includes conservatives, traditionalists, reactionaries and fascists.

Keith Olbermann, #34 …. “The Enormous Cost of Trump’s War on Immigrants …. “!!

FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE UNDOCUMENTED AMERICAN

First they came …” is a statement and poem written by Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) about the cowardice of German intellectuals following the Nazis’ rise to power and subsequent purging of their chosen targets, group after group.

~Wikipedia~

blinefirstbline

America and Americans have been know for their kind actions in benefit of others (so they claim).

Nevertheless, this belief is shattered as we see the heartlessness in the deportment of these undocumented Americans who do not fall under the category of criminals, drug dealers and the like.

Take into account the story of Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos.

As I write this, the phrase ‘cut your nose to spite your face’ comes to mind.

Be careful what you wish for!

Garcia de Rayos came illegally to the United States from Guanajuato, Mexico, in the mid-1990’s with her parents when she was 14. She was arrested in 2008 in a workplace raid at Golfland Sunsplash, a waterpark in Mesa, Arizona.
She was convicted in March 2009 of criminal impersonation for having a fake Social Security number, a sixth-degree felony.

I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.

Keith Olbermann series called “The Resistance” continues.

He has posted installment #34.

Happy Christmas …. ‘War Is Over’ …. “Timeliness Classic …. still applies today …. “!!

~~December 26, 2016~~ 

CHRISTMAS IS OVER … NEW YEAR NEARBY

A timeless classic.

Another favorite of mine.

It was written so long ago, yet the lyrics apply today as much as they did then.

If only ….

Happy Xmas … War is Over!

Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” is a Christmas song with lyrics by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, released in 1971 as a single by John & Yoko/Plastic Ono Band with the Harlem Community Choir.

The lyrics are set to the traditional English ballad “Skewball”.

It was the seventh single release by Lennon outside of his work with the Beatles. The song reached number 4 in the UK, where its release was delayed until November 1972, and has periodically reemerged on the UK Singles Chart, most notably after Lennon’s death in 1980, at which point it peaked at number 2.

Also a protest song against the Vietnam War, “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” has since become a Christmas standard, frequently covered by other artists, appearing on compilation albums of seasonal music, and named in polls as a holiday favorite.

Partial Lyrics 

And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
Yellow and red ones
Let’s stop all the fight

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear ….

Something to think about …. “The most devastating story …. 2016 …. y’all saw it …. “!!


trumpers

~~December 13, 2016~~ 

HE’S PEOTUS BECAUSE OF A “GLITCH” IN THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE

Fair and square he didn’t win. He doesn’t have a mandate. He lost the popular vote by more than 2.8 million votes.

Yet, even with this Russian stuff, he’s set to be POTUS.

He’s proven to be a racist, sexist, mysogynist, opportunistic, sneaky, slimy, xenophobic, egotist, sexual predator, vindictive bully.

Still plenty Americans voted for him. 

It’s going to be quite the bumpy ride!

HortyRex©

bline

He talks like a third-grader … literally!

He never really explains how he’s going to do anything

He has no experience

He’s a bully with the media

He doesn’t care that you disagree with him

He’s gone bankrupt four times

He’s a terrible Christian

… and counting!
