‘Aleppo is nothing but hunger and Islam’ by Francesa Borri in The Guardian.
I’m glad that President Obama decided against overt U.S. intervention in the Syrian conflict, but I admit I don’t know what to do to help the poor people of Syria. It seems as if the only alternatives are continued rule by a ruthless and brutal hereditary dictator, and rule by local militias and warlords.
The United States government, for all our high-tech flying killer drones and all our highly-trained special operations forces, does not have the capability to keep the peace in a country torn by civil war. Arming one or more of the fighting factions makes things worse. Bombarding the country makes things worse. Helping victims is good to do, but it doesn’t solve the problem. Maybe somebody who knows more about Syria than I do sees an answer. I don’t see any.
Hollywood ‘Fight Club’ producer was Israeli spy with nuclear script by RT News. Hat tip to O.
Arnon Milchan, producer of Hollywood movies such as Pretty Woman, Fight Club and LA Confidential, gave an interview about his earlier life as an Israeli secret agent in the 1970s who obtained materials and equipment for Israel’s secret nuclear weapons program. This helps me understand the Israeli government’s fear of Iran’s nuclear program. If Israel could develop nuclear weapons without the world’s knowledge, why couldn’t Iran?
