(SAN FRANCISCO)  On April 12, 2018, the U.S., Britain, and France launched a strike against Syrian research, storage, and military targets to punish Syrian president Bashar al-Assad for his suspected use of his air power to drop chemical weapons in an attack in the Damascus suburb of Guouta, where between 40 and 70 people were reported to have been killed by banned chlorine and sarin gases.  The key word here is “suspected.”  Assad and Russia have vigorously denied the allegations.

Human rights: quotable quotes

(BETHLEHEM)   The manufactured hysteria about the bombing in Paris will expand weapons manufacturing and sales around western countries. Arms manufacturer stocks are already booming and the Zionists and neoconservatives who own and run these companies will get even richer. Liberty and democracy will suffer as new freedom-restricting laws are passed using manufactured fear (like in the US after September 11, 2001).

Thoughts on the Paris attacks

syria-rs2Sudden shocks such as the Charlie Hebdo and Paris massacres have been used to justify the French to bolster its security and intelligence forces and introduce new surveillance laws.  In ordinary times, such laws might have been vigorously opposed by the populace.  When security trumps privacy, the terrorists win.

(SAN FRANCISCO)   The U.S. finds itself between a rock and a hard place in the Syrian civil war. Russia has deployed warplanes and tanks to a base near Latakia, Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad’s Syrian government.  In the meantime, Iran ground troops have arrived in Syria.  These troops would be backed by Assad’s Lebanese Hezbollah allies and by Shi’ite militia fighters from Iraq.  Russia is providing air support for these ground troops.

– You are invited today (Wednesday July 22) at 2 PM for a talk by Hodgkin the author of “A History of Mathematics From Mesopotamia to Modernity” and retired math professor from King’s College in London. His lecture is titled “Mathematics and justice: what is mathematics doing to us, and what could it do for us?” Earlier, we took a trip with Prof. Hodgkin to Artas because he is the grandchild of Mrs. Crowford (she and Louise Baldensperger were partners in the 1920s/1930s in studying Palestinian plants and folklore in that town)
