Hillary to Deliver Syria to Jihadists?

According to Hillary Clinton's foreign policy advisor, Jeremy Bash, if Clinton is elected she will order a "re-set" of US policy toward Syria to emphasize the "murderous" nature of the Assad regime. As the Telegraph reports, Hillary Clinton will breathe new life into the "Assad must go" camp. She will likely launch a full-scale US invasion of Syria.

Said Bash:
A Clinton administration will not shrink from making clear to the world exactly what the Assad regime is. It is a murderous regime that violates human rights; that has violated international law; used chemical weapons against his own people; has killed hundreds of thousands of people, including tens of thousands of children.
Of course claims that he has used chemical weapons on his own people is the long since disproven neocon cri de guerre to push Obama into an attack on the Syrian government. The 2013 gas attack near Ghouta was likely a provocation by the rebels hoping to draw the US directly into their fight.

Boos and Jeers from Home State Delegation Greet Debbie Wasserman Schultz

It was a rowdy scene at the Democratic National Convention this morning when Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) addressed her home state of Florida’s delegation to the convention. Wasserman Schultz over the weekend announced her resignation as chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) after DNC emails made public by Wikileaks confirmed what many people had already suspected — high level leadership in the Democratic Party sought to help Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) win the Democratic nomination in her close contest against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). 

If Wasserman Schultz thought she would find forgiveness and a warm welcome from her home state delegation, that hope was quickly dashed when, along with applause, loud boos and jeers greeted her.

Intervention Fail: ISIS Makes Bloody Gains in Post 'Liberation' Afghanistan

Shortly after the Taliban took power in Afghanistan in 1996 (their rise to power itself a result of the 1979 Soviet intervention in Afghanistan), we began to hear endless stories of the horrors of this student movement turned governing power. They ruled by Sharia law, they treated women badly, they even blew up ancient statues!

The US rhetoric against the Taliban began long before the attacks of 9/11 (which were carried out largely by Saudis who trained in Afghanistan with the knowledge of the Taliban). But it was the 9/11 attacks that opened the door to a direct US intervention in Afghanistan.

Retaliation for Nice? France Bombs 120 Civilians in Syria

Mainstream media and even the rebel-friendly Syrian Observatory for Human Rights have confirmed the killings and the civilian victims today.
