Labour delegates at the party’s annual conference have voted to support military action in Syria, but only if four strict conditions are met by the international community.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Twin evils? Utter rubbish: does Assad threaten the world? On the contrary, he is standing up for the survival of a secular republic which guarantees the equality of genders and the harmonic life among different religions and ethnic groups, enjoying the same rights. And he doesn't encourage nor organize terror attacks in the West or elsewhere. Whereas that is exactly what ISIS does, along with the ethnic and religious cleansing and oppression of women in Syria. Philip Hammond shouls revise his political education and speak the truth, not just the neocon garbage.
The key difference between the Russian and Western campaigns in Syria is that Moscow has been asked for help Damascus officially, unlike the US who “neither waited for the Syrian government to ask for help, nor had a mandate from the UN,” experts say.

“For the west the brutal realization is now that its objective to overthrow the Syrian government through the use of various Islamist groups has failed, and as a result of that failure it has caused absolute chaos and carnage in Syria. The West: the Americans, the British and the French, publically will be saying that there needs of some sort of coordinated action, possibly with Russia, possibly with Iran, to target ISIS, but on the other hand, they don’t want to lose face. So they have got to keep to what they have been arguing since 2011 – that President Assad is this ‘tyrant’, is this ‘genocidal maniac’- all this sort of Hollywood terminology... Their policy has been an abject failure. And Russia now has to step in and now has to clear up the mess that the West and its regional allies – Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey have caused in Syria,” Papadopoulos said.
Russia's Ministry of Defense has released a video showing a military jet striking Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) targets in Syria. Moscow says that at least eight targets were hit Wednesday, with a coordination center in the mountains having been totally destroyed.
Mothers of young men murdered by police in Orange County, Calif., testify to the systematic destruction of families and society that such shootings cause. And by extension they indict the capitalist evil that consciously holds the poor like animals in squalid pens. - 2015/09/28
The UN has done nothing to stop Washington’s invasions and bombings, illegal under international law, of seven countries or Obama’s overthrow by coup of democratic governments in Honduras and Ukraine, with more in the works.
The UN does provide a forum for countries and populations within countries that are suffering oppression to post complaints—except, of course, for the Palestinians, who, despite the boundaries shown on maps and centuries of habitation by Palestinians, are not even recognized by the UN as a state.
The World Bank anticipates a 3.8 percent contraction of the Russian economy in 2015, reflecting lower global oil prices and the impact of Western sanctions on the country. However it is more optimistic for the Russian economy in the coming years.
Hardly had Edward Snowden joined Twitter, he got his first troll - ex New York Governor George Pataki who called ex-NSA contractor “a traitor”. But Pataki didn’t know there is troll for every troll on social media – and in no time his tweets backfired.
Islamic State militants are in possession of components for weapons of mass destruction, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has warned the UN Security Council meeting, urging that IS be included on an anti-terrorist sanction list as a separate subject.
Seymour Hersh has risked much over his decades of journalism. He is a true journalist who has been attacked, slandered, and shunned by all sides simply because he seems to resist taking any side. When he reported on US atrocities in Vietnam, he was first…
Enrique Ferro's insight:
In 2007, when he exposed the then Bush-administration’s plans to use the Muslim Brotherhood and militant groups linked to Al Qaeda to overthrow the government of Syria – the result of which is unfolding today – the New Yorker gladly welcomed his work as a message they perceived would resonate well with liberal audiences.
But then in 2013, when Hersh brought forward information contradicting the West’s official narrative regarding a chemical attack on the outskirts of Damascus, the New Yorker decided not to publish it. His report, “Whose Sarin?” instead found itself published in the London Review of Books.
