The age of disintegration 29.6.2016 Le Monde Diplomatique
We live in an age of disintegration. Nowhere is this more evident than in the Greater Middle East and Africa. Across the vast swath of territory between Pakistan and Nigeria, there are at least seven ongoing wars — in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Somalia, and South Sudan.

The Age of Disintegration: An Endless Cycle of Indecisive Wars 28.6.2016 Truthout.com
We live in an age of disintegration. Nowhere is this more evident than in the Greater Middle East and Africa. Across the vast swath of territory between Pakistan and Nigeria, there are at least seven ongoing wars -- in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Somalia, and South Sudan. These conflicts are extraordinarily destructive. They are tearing apart the countries in which they are taking place in ways that make it doubtful they will ever recover. Cities like Aleppo in Syria, Ramadi in Iraq, Taiz in Yemen, and Benghazi in Libya have been partly or entirely reduced to ruins . There are also at least three other serious insurgencies: in southeast Turkey, where Kurdish guerrillas are fighting the Turkish army, in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula where a little-reported but ferocious guerrilla conflict is underway, and in northeast Nigeria and neighboring countries where Boko Haram continues to launch murderous attacks. All of these have a number of things in common: they are endless and seem never to produce ...

US Bombing of Syrian Troops Would Be Illegal 23.6.2016 Truthout - All Articles
A portrait of President Bashar al-Assad on a street in Homs, Syria, March 23, 2014. (Sergey Ponomarev / The New York Times) Truthout remains a vital counterpoint to the mainstream news. Keep grassroots media thriving, make a tax-deductible donation today! In an internal "dissent channel cable," 51 State Department officers called for "targeted military strikes" against the government of Bashar al-Assad in Syria, a proposal that President Barack Obama has thus far resisted. However, were he to accept the cable's advice, he would risk a dangerous -- possibly catastrophic -- confrontation with Russia. And, such a use of military force in Syria would violate US and international law. While the cable decries "the Russian and Iranian governments' cynical and destabilizing deployment of significant military power to bolster the Assad regime," the cable calls for the United States to protect and empower "the moderate Syrian opposition," seeking to overthrow the Syrian government. However, Assad's government is ...
