  • Clinton: No US ground troops in Iraq, Syria; Trump: Steal Iraqi Oil
    • 10 years ago, in Israel for my nephews bar mitzvah, I spent some time in the West Bank. My informal survey of their preferred news outlets was the same as Juan, AlJazeera and Alarabiya. (yes, I'm a nosey gringo)

  • Syria: The Battle for Aleppo Begins as Rebels Retreat
    • I was wondering where informed people are getting their information on the Syrian opposition. I found this, although its surely out of date by now.

      link to

      80 page report on the Syrian opposition from May by the Olaf Palm Center.

  • The Generals try to stop an Iran War
    • When any of my Jewish friends and family start their "support Israel at any cost" rant, I remind them that two of our Israeli cousins (one of whom is orthodox) are big fans of Marwan Barghouti. Then I get to explain who Marwan Barghouti is, and that Netanyahu = G. Bush.

  • US sees Iranian Military Spending as Threat
    • I have been trying to wrap my head around U.S. military spending for a while now.
      17-21 intelligence agencies, veterans affairs, energy (nukes), portions of immigration, interest payments of the military portion of national debt, international exchange rates, as a % of national budget, hidden unpublished (black) budgets, plus we don't really know how many military bases we have.
      Can anyone list 4 or 5 books / journals that do a good job of the number crunching ?

  • Feinstein: Senate Intel Committee May Investigate CIA Targeting of Cole
    • Just google. "Menwith Hill".
      When the CIA, NSA etc wants to spy on the US or US citizens, they just outsorce it.
      In this case they/ we set up a facility in England, staffed with 95% US agents, and a frosting of 5% Brits.
      It then gets labeled as a British site, so that their local media doesn't freak out with all those US spy's on their home turf.

  • Torpey: Support the Libyans but Don't Arm Them!
    • Important sectors of the Egyptian uprising refused to meet with Hillary. Sounds like my kinds of people! What are they saying about this, the 4th or 8th ? country we've shot missiles at this century.
      We can almost predict what millionaire politicians and military leaders could will say. What are the grassroots progressives of Tunisia and Egypt saying? Are they encouraging the Egyptian army to get involved. Are there armed caravans from Tunisia?
      Seriously, where can I find those voices ? Those voices that are a level or two below Aljazeera English ?

  • Egypt Protests Spark Confrontations in Yemen, Algeria
    • I can't tell you how many times people in Latin America asked me to keep my government from invading their country, overthrowing their government and killing their families. U. S. Citizens.. your homework for today.. keep U.S. weapons, U.S. money and the CIA out of Egypt. They don't get to define what is in U.S. interests, We do!! Easier said than done.

  • Map of Lebanon by Religious Sect
    • How about an ethnic / race / religion map of the USA ? That might help us put these other maps in context.

  • Israel Declares for Ethnic Nationalism
    • I had heard that any Jews who had visited Israel as a tourist in the 12 months preceding their census were counted as Israeli Jews. Has anyone else heard this ?
