“We don’t have a basis, our lawyers tell us, unless we have a UN Security Council Resolution,  which the Russians can veto or the Chinese, or unless we are under attack, by the folks there, or unless we are invited in.

Russia is invited in by the legitimate regime–well it’s illegitimate in our mind–but by the regime. And so they were invited in and we’re not invited in. We’re flying in airspace there where they can turn on the air defense and we have a very different scene. The only reason they’re letting us fly is because we’re going after ISIL. If we were going after Assad, those air defenses, we’d have to take out all the air defenses, and we don’t have a legal justification, frankly for doing that, unless we stretch it way beyond the law, on a humanitarian basis. Which some people argue we should, by the way. But so far American legal theory has not gone into the so-called “right to protect.”

‘Never mind the US, Russia’s the one losing patience over Syria ceasefire chaos’ – Chief of Staff

This follows the news that Washington has attempted to protect terror group AL NUSRAH FRONT by keeping its so-called “moderate” terrorists in the same locations, using them as human shields to protect AL QAEDA terrorists from aerial bombing.

Folks, this is what your “leaders” are actually doing in Syria today.

The Russian military says Washington still won’t provide a list of groups it considers terrorist, allowing jihadists to regroup and escape Russian-led air raids on their positions, the head of the Russian General Staff said.

Perhaps “intelligence” and “fraud” should be considered synonyms now, at least when it comes to war pretexts, war propaganda.

The truth about Venezuela: a revolt of the well-off

Major media outlets have already reported that Venezuela’s poor have not joined the right-wing opposition protests, but that is an understatement: it’s not just the poor who are abstaining – in Caracas, it’s almost everyone outside of a few rich areas like Altamira, where small groups of protesters engage in nightly battles with security forces, throwing rocks and firebombs and running from tear gas.

Walking from the working-class neighborhood of Sabana Grande to the city center, there was no sign that Venezuela is in the grip of a “crisis” that requires intervention from the Organization of American States (OAS), no matter what John Kerry tells you. The metro also ran very well, although I couldn’t get off at Alta Mira station, where the rebels had set up their base of operations until their eviction this week.
