The Death of Yarmouk Palestinian Camp

Yarmouk is a symbol of Palestinian insistence—insistence that the right of return be addressed, insistence that their narrative be recognized, that their need for safety be respected, that their rights be upheld, that they live in dignity.

(YARMOUK PALESTINIAN CAMP, Damascus) - Franklin Lamb with Ziad el Shayer (Abu-Hazem) Sec-Gen of Fateh Intifada This observer does not write these words casually.

And he is no huge fan of some of the intellectually lazy quick spun internet conspiracy theories, too many of which appear given to flights from reality when facts get complicated and dispositive information is obscure.

Palmyrenes: Risking their Lives to Preserve our Global Cultural Heritage

The international community is obligated to preserve and protect, and also, where necessary and where possible to reconstruct the damaged archeological sites...

(PALMYRA, Homs Governorate, Syria) - Palmyrenes This observer, seemingly ever miscalculates life’s realities.

For example, he deluded himself recently into believing that Hezbollah guys were about the wildest, luckiest and fastest drivers from the archeological sites in Baalbek in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley, or for a fast trip from the charming village of Britel, to Beirut’s southern suburbs.

President Assad and Ayatollah Khamenei are Keeping Their Word Will President Obama Keep His?

US sanctions continue to compound and increase the nearly unfathomable suffering of the Syrian people, all of whom have been targeted by Barack Obama.

(LATAKIA, Syria) - Obama and Syria Recent reports from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the accuracy of which have been conceded by the White House, but denied in Tel Aviv, have it that slightly less than half of Syria’s chemical weapons have already left the country.

Take This Action Now to Prevent War with Syria

We have seen how in Libya the "no fly zone" and "humanitarian support" turned into unending violence and an attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission. Let us express our strong opposition to this.

(WASHINGTON DC) - Syria Solidarity Movement As we approach the March 15 end of the third year of deadly conflict in Syria, some organizations are pushing for greater US intervention and escalation of the conflict.

They have organized a concerted lobbying campaign in the halls of Congress along with public demonstrations and publicity.

Resisters of Sykes-Picot Land Grab Perform Key Fighting Roles in Syria

"Syria will not kneel to the Zionist-Arab project to destroy the unity and independence of the Syrian Arab Republic” - PFLI fighters

(NORTH OF LATAKIA, Syria) - Commander Ali Kayali of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Iskanderun (PFLI) 3/4/14 Latakia Every school kid here in Syria learns at an early age about the various colonial land grabs that have lopped off key parts of their ancient country, and they receive instruction about their national duty to recover this sacred territory.

The concept applies equally to still-occupied Palestine, or at least it did before the 2011 uprising got started...

Debate on Escalation in Syria

Here's a liberal progressive war advocate employed by a center funded by a war profiteer pushing for "coercive measures" and "threats of force" without ever discussing the actual killing he wants done. I debate him below on The Real News.com.

(WASHINGTON DC) - Peace sign in Syria I've never debated anyone who wants limited child abuse or small-scale slavery or carefully circumscribed rape. It's always war.

It's always the worst crime, the crime least susceptible to control once begun, and the crime that includes all the others, the crime defined at Nuremberg as the greatest of them all because it includes all the others. And it's always in blatant violation of the law.

(SEYYEDA ZEINAB, Syria) - Seyeda Zeinab During a meeting at the Dama Rose hotel in Damascus the other morning this observer was being briefed by ‘Abu Modar” a reputedly battle honed field commander of the “Death Brigade” which is based in the northern Syria Eskanderoun region north of Latakia.

Abu Modar explained that he personally had chosen the rather peculiar name for his brigade “Death” to symbolize his militia’s willingness to die for their cause which is protecting Syria.

Ukraine, Syria, Solidarity and More ...

Russia's strong influence in the mostly Russian Speaking Crimean peninsula of the Ukraine threatens to ignite another Crimean war.

(BETHLEHEM) -  The Siege of Sevastopol 1855 It is sometimes instructive to learn a bit of history to reflect on current events because if we do not learn from history, we are bound to repeat the tragic history of useless wars.

This came to me as I read about the escalating situation in Ukraine, where the US and western countries invested heavily to dislodge the Ukraine (strategically located on the Black Sea) from Russian influence.

Syria: The Crime and the Criminals

Video examines tragic evolution of the western effort to strike liberties and earn endless billions for the deadly defence industry.

(BANGKOK) - Syria flag with blood The Syrian civil war, insurrection, rebellion, revolt, uprising, call it what you will, was not home grown in Syria by Syrians with differing outlooks as to how their nation should be governed.

This is what the mainstream media would have you believe — that it was part of a strategy pre-planned by vicious, sociopathic foreigners called “Neocons” and they began their planning in 1991...

`Coalition of the Willing` Promotes No Fly Zone

Soldiers joke, laugh and seem pleased when citizens approach them to offer their thanks for the army’s service to the Syrian Arab Republic.

(DAMASCUS al Manar) - Syrian soldiers enjoy Valentine Day in Damascus. Dozens of parks in Damascus have been receiving unusually large numbers of visitors, not least of whom are Syrian soldiers on leave, enjoying the green space with girlfriends, families and friends.

At the large garden with dozen of benches and sculptures, soldiers, presumably from out of town and with many appearing utterly exhausted, can be seen simply laying on the grass fast asleep under the warm healing sunshine.
