If NATO wanted peace in Syria, it wouldn’t call for a no-fly zone

first_imgBrooklyn, N.Y., Nov. 5. Protest against U.S. intervention in Syria marches to Hillary Clinton’s office.In the midst of the chaotic 2016 U.S. presidential election, the massive failure of U.S. foreign policy to overthrow the Syrian government has forced both Republicans and Democrats to reassess the U.S. role in the conflict in Syria. Already in its sixth year, the conflict has killed hundreds of thousands and displaced 11 million people — nearly half the Syrian population.Up to this point, the U.S. has carried out airstrike campaigns and funded, armed and trained various anti-government groups. More direct intervention has been on the table for a long time now. The widely proposed “no-fly zone,” an act of aggression that would lead to direct military intervention, demonstrates that the U.S. and NATO are clearly not interested in peace.A no-fly zone (otherwise known as a  “no-bomb zone” or “safe zone”) is  territory over which the U.S. and its NATO allies would not permit other military aircraft to fly. Those powers would force other planes to land, shoot down aircraft and bomb airports preemptively. Prominent supporters of a no-fly zone in Syria include Hillary Clinton, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson.During the Oct. 19 presidential debate, Clinton said, “I think a no-fly zone could save lives and could hasten the end of the conflict.” (New York Times, Oct. 20)Despite their posturing, politicians and military leaders alike have no illusions about the aggression that a no-fly zone entails. Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that “for us to control all of the airspace in Syria it would require us to go to war against Syria and Russia.” (theguardian.com, Oct. 25)History of no-fly zonesInstead of taking the words of the politicians and pundits at face value, it’s crucial to look at the historical precedent for no-fly zones. They have been implemented three times: Iraq in 1991, Bosnia-Herzegovina in 1993 and Libya in 2011.At the end of the Gulf War in 1991, a no-fly zone was imposed on Iraq by the United States, France and Turkey. It was enforced up to the U.S.-British invasion in 2003, which ultimately led to regime change, the decimation of Iraq’s infrastructure, at least half a million deaths and millions of refugees. But even before 2003, more than 1,400 Iraqi civilians were killed by U.S. and British bombs dropped to enforce the no-fly zones.Just a year after the first no-fly zone in Iraq was put in place, following the separation of Bosnia from Yugoslavia in 1992, the U.N. Security Council passed a resolution calling for a no-fly zone in Bosnia-Herzegovina; it was enforced by NATO. Following the declaration of the no-fly zone came a 15-day bombing campaign, along with British and French shelling of Bosnian Serbs. The fighting that started then eventually led to the destruction and dismemberment of Yugoslavia after the 1999 NATO aggression.In 2011, the U.N Security Council passed a resolution that allowed NATO and its Gulf allies to impose a no-fly zone in Libya. While the Libyan government took part in the ceasefire, NATO began its bombing campaign and support for anti-government elements, ripping apart the country and overthrowing the sovereign government.The no-fly zone was only ever selectively enforced, with NATO dropping supplies and arms to anti-government forces under the guise of “humanitarian aid.” Libya has gone from one of the most prosperous countries in Africa, boasting the highest life expectancy and lowest infant mortality rate, to a haven for sectarian militias and paramilitary groups.Over a million Libyan citizens have been internally displaced, over a dozen journalists have been murdered, and the political sphere in Libya today is characterized by constant military conflict.U.S. priority: Regime change in SyriaThose who support a no-fly zone in Syria must own up to the history of previous no-fly zones: three regime changes and three destroyed countries.Although a no-fly zone may be promoted as a moderate solution to deescalate the ongoing conflict in Syria, historical precedent suggests anything but. No-fly zones have to be enforced somehow, and this will require anti-aircraft technology and an estimated 70,000 troops on the ground, according to the Pentagon. (New York Times, Oct. 22, 2013)If the U.S. State Department were interested in promoting peace in Syria, it would never even consider an act of aggression like a no-fly zone. But based on the U.S.’s historical involvement in Syria, it’s clear that the U.S. has no interest in peace.The U.S. has been interested in controlling Syria for decades, with consecutive CIA-backed coup attempts in 1956 and 1957. Since 1967, because of the Ba’athist government’s support for Palestinian and Lebanese resistance to Israeli aggression, the U.S. has kept Syria under close scrutiny. The U.S. government explicitly expressed desire for regime change in 1996 and again following 9/11.Given Washington’s longstanding desires in the region, the 2011 “Arab Spring” protests were seen as a convenient opportunity for swift regime change. The anti-government movement has been thoroughly corrupted by Salafist military groups like the Islamic State group (IS) and al-Nusra (an al-Qaida offshoot in Syria), and foreign involvement has only worsened the situation.The Obama administration again pressed toward intervention in 2013 with accusations that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons on civilians, but a U.N. Mission Report later determined that the chemicals had instead been used by anti-government forces. When the United States government is dedicated to undermining a sovereign government, it will grasp at anything to construct narratives that delegitimize its target.Terrorism: a tool to subvert Syrian gov’tThe material involvement of the United States in the conflict has been overwhelmingly consistent with its strategic aim of undermining the Syrian government. A 2012 Defense Intelligence Agency declassified document indicates that the CIA knowingly facilitated the rise of IS to destabilize the region.The U.S. government’s plan to support “moderate” anti-government forces has boomeranged. Fighting even broke out between CIA-armed and Pentagon-armed proxies, according to a report in the March 26, 2013, Chicago Tribune.Washington has funded fighters who consistently join the ranks of al-Qaida or IS, it airdrops or sells weapons that wind up in the hands of IS, and it targets the Syrian army in airstrikes. The U.S. government has made its priorities clear: It values the destruction of Syria over civilian lives.Russia’s successful assistance to the Syrian Army in fighting groups like al-Nusra and IS forced the U.S. in September to consider coordinating with Russia. But then the Pentagon targeted Syrian government positions, killed 80 Syrian soldiers and broke up the coordination.U.S. proxy forces are all linked to al-Nusra, which sabotages U.S.-Russia cooperation. With the U.S. plan to establish a “moderate” opposition to carry out regime change failing, Washington gets more desperate and reckless. Unwilling to coordinate with Russia, the U.S. government is considering the aggressive no-fly zone strategy as a last-ditch effort.Encirclement of RussiaIt must be emphasized that U.S. aggression in Syria cannot be separated from its general interests in the region. U.S. involvement in Syria must not be viewed in isolation, but rather as a front in its geopolitical war targeting Russia and China. Between CIA support for the Nazi-infested, right-wing coup in Kiev, Ukraine, to the covert funding of Salafist paramilitary groups in Syria, the United States is slowly but surely encircling Russia.NATO has begun to increase its military presence, including troops and tanks, in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. NATO has also bolstered its forces elsewhere in Eastern Europe and conducted unusually aggressive military exercises in Poland.While the U.S. quietly closes in on Russia’s borders, anti-Russian war propaganda and fear mongering have grown louder by the day. China and Russia have been deemed threats to U.S. national security; the Democratic Party has gone so far as to accuse Russia of leaking hacked information about the Democratic National Committee.Given Russia’s air support on the side of the Syrian Army, the situation is quite sensitive. Within the Syrian “civil” war lies a precarious proxy war by the U.S./NATO targeting Russia. The imposition of a no-fly zone on the part of the U.S./NATO is a sure way to escalate to a full-scale intervention in Syria and possibly a direct war with Russia. Now more than ever, it’s crucial for the anti-war movement to call for NATO’s exit from Syria.This guest contributor to workers.org is an anti-war activist involved in the student movement.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

This case of censorship, affecting a very specialised site with solely French-language content, shows the government attaches as much importance to the censorship of economic data as political content.”The press freedom organisation added: “The free flow of information online is not only a human rights issue, it is essential to lasting economic growth and the creation of solid trade relations with other countries.”The Observatoire International des Crises (OIC) is a French organisation that produces a magazine on crisis management methods for businesses. The article that prompted China’s censorship, written by Didier Heiderich, said: “The Middle Kingdom has managed to divert international investments for its benefit, obtain technologies without anything in return other that the promises arising from our own imagination, gag its dissidents – including those abroad – and ensnare the west in its golden clutches (…) Perhaps it is time to realise this before we are closed in the Chinese trap for good.” The complete article.The OIC issued a release on 28 March condemning the censorship of their website, which – it says – shows “the extreme fragility of freedoms” in China. “It seems to us to be more evident than ever that companies setting up, relocating or buying in China should be discerning and vigilant, acting with industrial rigour and social and environmental responsibility,” the release says.******Create your blog with Reporters Without Borders and Read our “blog review” : www.rsfblog.org March 30, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 French website blocked for warning of risks of investing in China to go furtherlast_img read more

After ‘very credible’ tip on unsolved murder, IPD appeals for more information

first_imgITHACA, N.Y. — A “very credible” anonymous tip has brought Ithaca Police investigators a little closer to solving a 32-year-old murder case in Ithaca.In August, The Ithaca Voice published an update on the case of David Malcom, who was killed in February 1987. Shortly after the article went online, Deputy Chief Vincent Monticello said the Ithaca Police Department received an anonymous tip through their online tip submission page.“Although I can’t say what it is, the information is very credible and we would like to look into that a little bit more, but we really need to talk to this individual and we can even keep that person confidential,” Monticello said.Malcom was found stabbed to death on Feb. 12, 1987, in the former American Red Cross shelter office on West Court Street in Ithaca. Police believe he was murdered the afternoon before. At the time, police did not have enough evidence to pin down a suspect and the case went cold by the end of 1988. The case has been revisited over the years, but in 2016, police reopened Malcom’s case and really “started from scratch,” Monticello said in August.• Read more: Police continue to investigate 32-year-old unsolved Ithaca murder Tagged: cold case, David Malcom, ipd, ithaca, ithaca police department, unsolved murder Your Crime & Courts news is made possible with support from: Kelsey O’Connor is the managing editor for the Ithaca Voice.

He said he hopes the person who submitted information will come forward and speak to police confidentially. “To get some resolution to this case, it’s important we have a conversation,” he said.[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”45″ gal_title=”David Malcom”]Monticello was a beat cop around the time Malcom was murdered and said he wants to see this case get closure.“On a personal level, I’d like to see a resolution to this case because having worked it the last four years, also going back to when I was a young police officer, I’ve seen how it affected a lot of people, a lot of David’s friends, his sister,” Monticello said. “It’s important to her and a lot of friends that we have some resolution to this case. So, we are appealing to the public – and not only to this person that contacted us but if there’s somebody else out there that has credible knowledge of what happened on Feb. 11 (1987), we need to talk to that individual or those individuals as well.”Anyone with information can call 607-272-9973 ext. 3230.Featured image: From left, David Malcom and his sister, Hope, posed in 1973.

6-year-old girl shot in the head by a stray New Year’s Eve bullet: Police

first_imgJobina Fortson/KGO(OAKLAND, Calif.) — A 6-year-old girl is recovering from a gunshot wound to the head after she was struck by a stranger’s stray bullet as the clock struck midnight on New Year’s Eve, according to authorities.Police in Oakland, California, told ABC News that the child was playing in the back yard of her home during a family New Year party when she was shot.Neighbors told ABC Bay Area affiliate KGO-TV that children at the party were counting down to the New Year when suddenly they heard gun shots, and the 6-year-old girl fell to the ground crying and bleeding from her head. Her parents were unaware she had been shot until they got to the hospital, according to KGO-TV.Due to the injury to the child and evidence observed at the scene, Oakland police told ABC News they believed the child was struck by celebratory gun fire.During a press conference on Jan. 1, police officer Johnna Watson said that the wound is “consistent with something that may come from…an angle of something falling.”A stray bullet also hit a car parked outside the party, according to police.Watson told ABC News that Oakland police will not be releasing the girl’s name, but she remains in stable condition.The bullet remains in the girl’s head, according KGO-TV.Oakland Police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick visited the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital to check up on the young girl.“An innocent child was affected and harmed by this,” said Kirkpatrick at press conference on Jan. 1. “Put the guns down, do not come to Oakland with your guns.”An investigation into the incident is ongoing and police are offering a $5,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
