'Friends of Syria' to send equipment to rebels

Jun 22 2013, 5:30pm CDT | by

Doha, June 23 (IANS) Foreign ministers of the "Friends of Syria" group of nations met in the Qatari capital of Doha for talks on the latest developments in Syria and agreed to further arm the opposition fighters.

Doha, June 23 — Foreign ministers of the "Friends of Syria" group of nations met in the Qatari capital of Doha for talks on the latest developments in Syria and agreed to further arm the opposition fighters.

Foreign ministers of 11 countries took part in the meeting, including the US, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Jordan, and Turkey.

In a joint statement, the meeting agreed to "provide urgently all the necessary materials and equipment" to the rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Xinhua reported.

The group also condemned "the intervention of the Shiite Hezbollah militia and fighters from Iran and Iraq".

Qatar's Prime Minister Hamad Bin Jassim al-Thani said the only way to end the Syrian conflict was to arm the opposition and provide it with all forms of support.

On his part, US Secretary of State John Kerry asserted that all parties agree that ending the Syrian violence would allow the Syrian people to choose their future.

"The continued bloodshed at the hands of the Assad regime and the increasing involvement of Iran and its proxy Hezbollah threaten the prospect of a political settlement and of peace and the regime's use of chemical weapons crossed President Obama and other nation's red line," Kerry said at the meeting.

Whack-A-Mole: Our Strategy for Permanent War

Sep 29 2014 8:50am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

After Barack Obama announced his high-risk military campaign in the Middle East, some commentators raised the question of why - given the decade of quagmire in Afghanistan and Iraq - was there no exit strategy? The answer by now is obvious: there will be no exit. The President says that we will defeat Islam in Iraq and Syria in three years. Active military people are less specific: "long time...extended conflict...as long as it takes..." Retired military are freer to say what they ...

Obama's Propagandistic UN Address

Sep 27 2014 10:29am CDT | Source: Truthout Stories

During President Barack Obama's first term, he generally was careful in making comments about world affairs – not that he was always completely honest but he was circumspect about outright lying. Over the past two years, however, he appears to have lost any such inhibitions. That's the case even when he is engaged in something as serious as addressing the United Nations General Assembly on issues of war or peace as occurred both last year and this year. In September 2013, Obama made ...

Contrary to the Pentagon briefings on success of the early airstrikes on the Islamic State in Syria -- “We’re going to keep the pressure on them,” said Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby -- my Arab sources indicate the attacks have produced light casualties and negligible damage.    The claims by the Kuwait New Agency (KUNA) of “at least 400 militants” killed in the first night of the attacks are wildly exag ...
