that anonymous op-ed the times published today is sumpin'. i, for one, am ready to follow john mccains lead and unite as one country behind an increased military budget and tax cuts for the rich just as soon as i mend my nike socks that i cut up in a pique. also, have a pair of tickets to the new yorker festival. now that bannon has been removed from the pogrom i just dont see the point. who wants to listen to judd apatow drone on about garry shandling for another four hours?

I've been following Syria very closely for a long time now. It is always dangerous, but at the moment is seems particularly dangerous. Mainstream media reporting is all one voice against Assad, and Putin, and Iran, and Hezbollah. Here are some sources from the other side if you are interested and these aren't already on your radar. Are they "Russian trolls" spreading "fake news" or is there another side to the story where the U.S. isn't so "exceptional"?

Al-Masdar News 

Moon of Alabama 
SST (scroll down below the stuff about his books for the blog...)
The Saker

Twitter feeds:
Elijah J. Magnier
Joshua Landis
War in Syria


And here's a longer Elijah Magnier piece on the danger of the current extremely dangerous situation in Syria:
