We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Washington’s Secret War on Syria

Click here to access article by Martin Berger from New Eastern Outlook.
It goes without saying that the so-called Syria’s civil war is the most dangerous and destructive crisis on the planet. Hundreds of thousands have already perished in this conflict, while around ten million Syrians have been displaced since early 2011.

To start this conflict and then keep its fires burning the US and its Satellites have spent billions of dollars.
You may be tired of reading about this subject (as I am), but this author uncovers many reports that document the sources of supplies to terrorists (identified as "rebels" in corporate media, you know, the good guys fighting the bad Assad government in Syria). These sources and participants do not include the CIA training of these terrorists that was revealed in one of my recent posts.

Unlike the lies of our puppet leaders of the Empire, President Erdogan of Turkey doesn't use the complicated fighting "Islamic terrorism" myth so prevalent in US Empire propaganda. Instead he uses simpler lies as reported in this post because he knows that the people in this region know the whole story about Turkey's role in supporting ISIS.
President Erdogan told the group of international parliamentary leaders that his country’s only intention in Syria was to “end the rule of the tyrant al-Assad who terrorizes with state terror.” Erdogan says he wanted to make clear that the Turks “do not have an eye on Syrian soil. The issue is to provide lands to their real owners. That is to say we are there for the establishment of justice.”
