However, this is largely because the general public is kept ignorant of most of these policies. Such actions, Dr. Chalmers Johnson notes, are kept secret from the US-American public. Respected analysts this week highlighted the disparity between Obama's treatment in the neoliberal press and his actual record. John Pilger quotes a typically sycophantic example of a description of Obama, this one from The Guardian : But the grace. The all-encompassing grace: in manner and form, in argument and intellect, with humour and cool ….[He] is a blazing tribute to what has been, and what can be again … He seems ready to keep fighting, and remains a formidable champion to have on our side … … The grace … the almost surreal levels of grace …” Nicolas J S Davies outlines the reality: Obama, whose political career has been sponsored by, among many other similar elements, lethal weapons manufacturer General Dynamics, has increased U.

Right across the country, rebels who are still fighting, are on the defensive. EXPLOSIONS. The battle for Aleppo lasted four years. More than 200,000 civilians were trapped in the heat of the fight. Attacks on civilians by any side in the war are crimes if it can be proved they were deliberate.

President Trump “needs to hear that," he said. While he wishes the president the best of luck in his new job, Raphael added, “It’s very unlikely that anything will affect the way that Mr. Trump views the world in terms of religion. Although it would be interesting to see if he does take away anything from today, with a comment of some sort.” Hayley Ringenberg, another member of the congregation, told VOA that just being together with leaders of so many different faiths emphasized to her the need to "stop the arguing and fighting. ... Simply love each other." Joel Pollak said many of the congregants in the cathedral had tears in their eyes during the moving service. He said the hymns and scriptural readings were very appropriate, in particular a selection from the Bible (1 Kings 3:5-12) where Solomon asks God not for riches and long life, but for wisdom.

But this was his own Tweet, just over a week ago, accusing the intelligence agencies of spreading fake news, attacking them with the words, "Are we living in Nazi Germany?" It's impossible to reconcile these two Trumps. We're gonna do great things. We've been fighting these wars for longer than any wars we have ever fought. We have not used the real abilities that we have.

Sen. Leach and a panel of experienced advocates articulated what citizens can do protect our liberties, passions and values. I'm not an expert in activism; this information is taken from Sen. Leach and the expert panel's experience and knowledge. However, I do have a passion, a pen and this platform so I am passing these tips along to you on how to effectively make a difference when stakes are at the highest. 1. Sustained small events build momentum. You don't need to plan the next Women's March (though kudos to those who have), organizing small events at a local level will get your message out and encourage like-minded people to join the effort and grow momentum. 2. Oppose bad ideas. Don't try to solve it or create an alternative idea, that just opens room for fighting over the solution. Focus your energy on stopping the bad idea. 3. Federalism is our friend.

The Afghanistan war was forgotten during the 2016 presidential campaign although the war is the longest American war in US history. Af ter 16 years including NATO participation, the war is inconclusive - there is no peace and seemingly no end. The war has been between U.S./NATO and the Taliban. Originally the Taliban conquered many towns and provinces without fighting as the townsmen welcomed them because they were disappointed with the mujahidin internal intrigue just the same as the American public who were disappointed with the established political order in Washington during 2016 election that led to the victory of President-Elect Donald Trump. The Taliban had control of Afghanistan when the tragedy of Bin Laden's 9/11 took place and caused a regime change in Afghanistan on October 7, 2001 . The subsequent U.S. appointed regimes failed to make peace with the Taliban and bring into the fold the 30 million Afghan citizens.

So the White House press secretary coming out fighting. That is setting down a marker for the future and I think the White House press call will be investing in flak jackets. Twitter is going to be rubbing its hands at the publicity. He needs to get a better fitting coat! We will leave that to one side. As we look at the news papers, it is interesting to consider how journalists in America might be feeling with this quite competent approach from the administration.

BANJUL, Jan 21 (Reuters) - Gambias former leader Yahya Jammeh flew into exile on Saturday after stepping down overnight under pressure from West African nations to accept he lost a December election to President Adama Barrow. Jammeh made no comment at the airport and the destination of the jet he boarded was unclear. He was accompanied by Guinean President Alpha Conde, who mediated the terms of his departure with Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz and others. The departure of Jammeh, who took power in a 1994 coup, ends weeks of stalemate and paves the way for the transfer of power to Barrow, who was sworn in as leader at the Gambian embassy in Senegal on Thursday and is now expected to return home. The events will likely be viewed as a triumph for African diplomacy, in part because there was no fighting between the 7,000 troops from Senegal and Nigeria who entered Gambia on Thursday and the authoritarian leaders forces.

American Herald Tribune America urged Saddam Hussein to attack Hafez al-Assad's Syria because of the closure of Iraq's oil pipeline, a secret 1983 intelligence report has revealed. A report, by former senior CIA official Graham Fuller, said the US should consider urging Iraq to take the war to Syria', noting that Saddam was fighting for his life' in the Iran-Iraq war. Through the closure of the pipeline, Mr Fuller said Syria had a hammerlock' on US interests in both Lebanon and in the Persian Gulf. With that being the case, he said the US should consider sharply escalating the pressures against Assad' from three border states hostile to Syria Iraq, Israel and Turkey. Faced with three belligerent fronts', Assad would probably be forced to abandon his closure of the pipeline, the report claimed.
