In recent months, moral confusion has grown with increasing awareness of extremely heinous rebel actions. The more massive crimes of total cruelty, like the Houla massacre, ensure that at best people will perceive two sides no better than each other. How much less confusing it would be if it became clear Houla, if not other crimes like it, were also from the rebel side. Houla is far from the only such incident,” some might protest.

Back then we suggested to “expect a prompt retaliation by the US” however it turns out Russia was not nearly done with embarrassing the US in what is becoming an obvious campaign to humiliate the US intelligence service, this time by going where very few clandestine operations go, at least during peacetime detente: by publicly exposing the head counterparty US spy. As Telegraph reports, “Russia’s Federal Security Service has publicly revealed the identity of a man it calls the CIA station chief in Moscow, in what experts say is a serious breach of intelligence protocol.”

Hackers continued needling Western media outlets this week, briefly compromising the web site and social media presence of the Financial Times on Friday, days after they took credit for launching a similar assault on the New York Times.

The Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) is a hacker collective that has made its name disrupting media outlets it perceives as against Syrian President Bashar Assad and sympathetic to Syrian rebel forces. The anonymous hackers have previously infiltrated the Associated Press, the BBC, Al Jazeera, and the Onion, a parody news site.

Teargas v stones, bottles: Hundreds of #protest|ers clash w/ #Turkey police near #Syria|n border (VIDEO, PHOTOS) | Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. | Scoop.it

Large doses of teargas, paintballs, and water cannon were fired as protesters clashed with police in the Turkish town of Reyhanli near Syrian border. The mass demonstration comes a week after twin car bomb explosions a week ago, which killed 46 people.
Residents of the town harbored frustration at the government’s immediate response to last Saturday's fatal car bombs in Hatay province on the Turkey-Syria border which also injured over 100.

 

The twin blast provoked mass rallies throughout the country.

Thursday also saw protesters in Istanbul with activists attempting to march to Erdogan's office, as they blame the PM for funding and support for the Syrian rebels against President Bashar Assad.

 

This followed a day of teargas and water cannons in Ankara, where 30 people were arrested and two injured in clashes with police.

Immediately following the blasts, approximately 100 of the city’s residents took to the streets outside Turkey’s Foreign Ministry.

Europe’s “Little #Guantanamo ”: Why The U.S. Wants Serbia To Give Up #Kosovo #mafia state & #USAmilitaryBase

Europe’s “Little #Guantanamo ”: Why The U.S. Wants Serbia To Give Up #Kosovo #mafia state & #USAmilitaryBase | Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. | Scoop.it

The U.S. military base in Kosovo was constructed in 1999 without consulting with the government of Serbia and is the largest U.S. military base built outside of the U.S. since the Vietnam War. The site was apparently used for extraordinary renditions and has been referred to as a “little Guantanamo”.

This is a very little known fact as NATO, the U.S., the European Union and the West are in the process of forcing Serbia to effectively give up Kosovo, and indicates the real motive for the West’s support of the Kosovo Liberation Army which it had deemed a terrorist organization in the past.
