Dissipating the "Fog of War" in Syria--the players, motives and end game

greencrow at Greencrow As The Crow Flies - 12 hours ago
*Mimi - Partisan Girl* *on We Are Change* *Interviewed by Luke Rudkowski* So many of the facts about the Syrian War are being muddied and corrupted by the "fog of war" disinformation makers that it's crucial that geopolitical writers constantly return to reliable sources for information...particularly at this time when things are happening on a daily or hourly basis. So it was fortuitous, to me at least, that "We are Change"'s editor, the intrepid video blogger Luke Rudkowski, came out last evening with the excellent interview with Mimi who blogs as "Partisan Girl".

Black Swans And Interventionistas...With Special Guest Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Daniel McAdams at 12 hours ago
Neocons and the pro-war mainstream media have nothing to lose when the wars they promote go terribly wrong. This is unique in history. After the predictable disaster, they return to their air conditioned Washington and New York offices while millions suffer and die. That is why why they are able to continue. In the words of today's Liberty Report guest Nassim Nicholas Taleb, they have no "skin in the game." The famous author of The Black Swan also lets us in on his thinking about the current state of the US economy and the actions of the Federal Reserve. Tune in to this very special... more »

Physician says using Cannabis to treat pain can reduce Opioid Dependency

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 20 hours ago
. The great news is that we are finally getting substantial clinical experience using cannabis oils. This nicely concentrates the active ingredient(s) for clinical application. As this makes clear it also provides a clear pathway to resolving the opiod crisis brought upon us by the pharmaceutical industry who have even subbed out far too much of their sales to the criminal element however papered over.

An Explosion of Never-Before-Seen Minerals Could Mark The Dawn of a New Geological Epoch

This is one of those things that we have been staring at and dismissing as we move along yet it has been with us forever. Most of these will rarely create a significant supply, but then that is true of most other mineral as well. It is the common ones we do see and they are almost the whole story when it comes to the general picture of the earth itself. Another reminder that mankind is creating real markers in the geologic environment and has been for a long time. I tend to include the whole Holocene into what is been called the Anthropocene. . *An Explosion of Never-Bef... more »

Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell - "slippery characters"

Whilst I don't agree with all of the characterisation of Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell in this video, there is much that is true and rather damning. The refusal of Jeremy Corbyn to condemn the IRA from 4:30 and John McDonnell's best of our movement remarks near the end of the video should be enough to chill the hearts of any democrats. https://youtu.be/bVvca2SEvqo Video extracts that the institutionally pro Labour Party BBC will do their best not to show in the run-up to the general election.

Is Theresa May trying to not win the election with a large majority?

Not a sheep at Not a sheep - 23 hours ago
Theresa May's tactics during this general election seem odd. Alienating pensioners seems to be an especially odd tactic as they are more likely to vote than other age groups, and more likely to vote Conservative. So the various policies in the Conservative Party manifesto that are detrimental to many seems odd. Unless that is if Theresa May really is a Remainer and wants to be re-elected Prime Minister with a reduced majority or even at the head of a weak coalition government. That way Brexit could be derailed. It's not beyond the realms of possibility and might also explain her... more »
