Labour will back Syria airstrikes… but only on these 4 conditions

Labour will back Syria airstrikes… but only on these 4 conditions | Global politics | Scoop.it
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.

Russian military in Syria: ‘Diametrically different approach’

Russian military in Syria: ‘Diametrically different approach’ | Global politics | Scoop.it
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.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

“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.

 Obama Deifies American Hegemony:    Information Clearing House - ICH By Paul Craig Roberts

Enrique Ferro's insight:

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 Western Media Is Dying and Here’s Why | New Eastern Outlook

The Western Media Is Dying and Here’s Why | New Eastern Outlook | Global politics | Scoop.it
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.

The story of Hersh bringing this information forward to the public and how the Western media attempted to first discourage it, then bury it, before attempting to discredit both the report and Hersh himself is a microcosm of the dying Western media
