The recent bombing that killed 51 in the Turkish town Reyhanli received only scant coverage in the local media. While the Turkish president Erdogan accused the Syrian government of committing the crime he did not want the facts to be out in the public. But he is not the only one to have power in Turkey.

A distinct increase of negative coverage has been forming in Western and Gulf press; this focus is specifically regarding Hezbollah’s direct involvement in the battle currently raging to take control of the Syrian town of Qusair; its overall role in Lebanon and the region, and its ties to both Syria’s President Assad, and the government of Iran.

You’ll note that the video has been removed from Youtube, thus the censorship is now complete (the BBC showed a very short clip from the video, omitting virtually all the young man’s statement). To add to the partial quote below, the Guardian carried more of the young man’s message:
“You think [British Prime Minister] David Cameron is going to get caught in the street when we start bussin’ our guns?” the man continued, again quoted by The Guardian. “You think politicians are going to die? No it’s going to be the average guy, like you, and your children. So get rid of them. Tell them to bring our troops back so you can all live in peace.”

The situation surrounding Syria is like a pendulum; first it swings in the direction of a major war, then suddenly a peaceful resolution glimmers. Observers barely have a chance to evaluate the new tendency before the pendulum starts to swing in the opposite direction again. The amplitude of its swing is so great that it sweeps through the center almost without pausing. In recent days on the battlefield, the scales have clearly been tipping in favor of the government forces. Western strategists are faced with a choice: either admit that the attempt to establish a puppet regime in Syria has failed, or set aside all their «soft power» gimmicks and switch to an open and expensive military intervention.

However, this report will take more than one article.

Obama’s presidency has been disastrous for African Americans, who have been economically crushed and disconnected from their historical roots in social struggle.Political fantasists now urge us to put our faith in demographics, claiming that change will inevitably flow from the darkening of America’s population. But, that’s a trap which leads to a descent into South Africa-like conditions. Continue reading this...
