Syria chem rockets ‘could have never been fired from govt controlled territory’

Syria chem rockets ‘could have never been fired from govt controlled territory’ | Global politics | Scoop.it
There is no way Washington could have a definite proof of who was behind the chemical attack in Ghouta because the toxic missiles could have “never” been fired from territory controlled by President Assad’s forces, co-author of the MIT report told...
Enrique Ferro's insight:


What the report actually says is basically that the White House had published a 4-page memo on the results of the chemical attack. In conjunction with the memo they also published a map. And on this map they had plotted the territories that were Syrian government occupied relative to where the rebels occupied. And then between those two territories they had an area called the contested territory.

Ukraine opposition trying to topple the government, bring in early elections

Ukraine opposition trying to topple the government, bring in early elections | Global politics | Scoop.it
The Ukrainian opposition is trying to topple the government through violence in the streets they pretend to not support, because they don’t have enough public backing to win a presidential election next year, investigative journalist Neil Clark...
Enrique Ferro's insight:

I think the opposition is now trying to bring down the government, to try and bring about very early elections, to bring forward the elections to topple the government. And this is anti-democratic because the majority of people are not represented by them. There’s no evidence that the majority of people in Ukraine do support them.
