Anti-Assad Forces Responsible for Houla Massacre - Report

June 11, 2012 by legitgov

Anti-Assad Forces Responsible for Houla Massacre - Report 09 Jun 2012 According to a new report in Germany's leading daily, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), the Houla massacre was in fact committed by anti-Assad Sunni militants, and the bulk of the victims were member of the Alawi and Shia minorities, which have been largely supportive of Assad... According to monastery sources cited by the Dutch Middle East expert Martin Janssen, armed rebels murdered "entire Alawi families" in the village of Taldo in the Houla region. Already at the beginning of April, Mother Agnès-Mariam de la Croix of the St. James Monastery warned of rebel atrocities' being repackaged in both Arab and Western media accounts as government atrocities. She cited the case of a massacre in the Khalidiya neighborhood in Homs. According to an account published in French on the monastery's website, rebels gathered Christian and Alawi hostages in a building in Khalidiya and blew up the building with dynamite. They then attributed the crime to the regular Syrian army. [Right, just like in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan when Blackwater and CIAciopaths were blowing up everything in sight and blaming 'insurgents.' --LRP]

After Gaddafi, Libya splits into disparate militia zones

June 10, 2012 by legitgov

After Gaddafi, Libya splits into disparate militia zones 09 Jun 2012 It's not independence but democracy that the people want, says Hanna El Gallal, a human rights activist. "We got rid of Gaddafi, but not the regime," she tells me. She points to the secrecy of the [US-installed] National Transitional Council, which, despite promising democracy, keeps its meetings secret and refuses even to disclose its full membership. "We didn't do a revolution and our people did not die to bring a new dictatorship." When the NTC does issue decrees, Libyans are aghast; last month it issued law number 37, making it a criminal offence to criticise the "17 February revolution".

At least 20 people were killed on Friday as rebels foreign terrorists stepped up a week-long offensive to avenge the killings in Qubair, the fourth incident of mass bloodletting directed at members of Syria's Sunni majority in a fortnight.

June 8, 2012 by legitgov

Suicides among U.S. troops averaging one a day in 2012 07 Jun 2012 Suicides are surging among America's troops, averaging nearly one a day this year - the fastest pace in the nation's decade of war.

The numbers reflect a military burdened with wartime demands from Iraq and Afghanistan that have taken a greater toll than foreseen a decade ago.

Another of her proposals would have prevent funds from being spent on TSA screening operations outside airports, but that amendment was also rejected in a 204-210 vote.

Foreign countries must stop backing Syria armed rebels: Iran official 07 Jun 2012 Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says the foreign countries that are supporting the terrorists in Syria must stop and defend the Syrian people instead. Amir-Abdollahian said on Thursday that the responsibility of the May 25 massacre in the town of Houla in Syria's province of Homs, which reportedly led to the deaths of 108 people including women and children, lies with those parties who claim to be defending the Syrian people but are in practice supporting the terrorists in this country. "Supporting the terrorists in Syria is a failed measure, at odds with the rights of the Syrian people and a threat to the regional and global peace and security," Amir-Abdollahian said.

Drone attacks create terrorist safe havens, warns former CIA official

June 7, 2012 by legitgov

Drone attacks create terrorist safe havens, warns former CIA official 05 Jun 2012 A former top terrorism official at the CIA has warned that President Barack Obama's controversial drone programme is far too indiscriminate in hitting targets and could lead to such political instability that it creates terrorist safe havens. Obama's increased use of drones to attack suspected 'Islamic militants' in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia and Yemen has become one of the most controversial aspects of his national security policy. He has launched at least 275 strikes in Pakistan alone; a rate of attack that is far higher than his predecessor George W Bush. The London-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism estimates up to 830 civilians, including many women and children, might have been killed by drone attacks in Pakistan, 138 in Yemen and 57 in Somalia. Hundreds more have been injured.
