Leid Stories—04.11.17

At an urgent meeting yesterday in Lucca, Italy, of G7 member-states, the focus was the situation in Syria and, specifically, last Thursday’s U.S. missile strike on a Syrian airfield. President Trump said it was retaliation for a chemical-weapons attack on Khan Sheikhoun, a town under the control of rebels fighting President Bashar al-Assad’s regime. Trump said Assad himself was responsible for the Khan Sheikhoun attack, which killed almost 90 people and injured more than 500.

The United States is at war with Syria, and the situation is escalating and rapidly deteriorating at the same time. Seventy-two hours after blaming President Bashar al-Assad for unleashing a deadly poison-gas attack on Khan Sheikhoun, a town under the control of rebels fighting Assad’s regime, Trump on April 7 ordered retaliatory bombing of a military airfield in Western Syria.

Lawrence Davidson – Democrats Lost in a Corporate Wilderness

You would think that learning from experience is a common thing to do. But, for the Democratic Party’s leadership, this seems not to be the case. After the landslide victory of Trump’s version of the Republican Party in the 2016 national election, it is fair to say that the Democratic Party is in big trouble. As Sen. Bernie Sanders has …

ROBERT FISK – Do the Tragedies of Syria Signal the End of Arab Revolutions?

Ray McGovern – When Putin Bailed Out Obama

Three years ago, when a reluctant President Barack Obama was about to launch an attack on Syria, supposedly in retaliation for President Bashar al-Assad crossing a “red line” against using chemical weapons, Obama smelled a rat – or rather he sensed a mousetrap.
