Needed in Syria: Disengagement

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 12:40:00 -0500

(image) One is the outbreak of another war between Israel and its neighbors.  A reminder of this danger has come from events that began when Israel said it shot down an Iranian drone that had entered its airspace.  Israeli F-16s then attacked a command center in Syria, during which Syrian air defenses downed one of the Israeli warplanes (a rare event for Israel).  Israel subsequently launched a much more widespread set of aerial attacks within Syria.  The Israelis have conducted scores of attacks in Syria over the last five years, but this most recent assault may have been the largest Israeli attack there since the 1980s. A new war involving Israel would surely also involve Lebanese Hezbollah.  There is no indication that Hezbollah seeks such a war.  The group has incurred significant costs by participating in fighting within Syria and has many wounds to lick.  Its leaders still have regrets about the brinksmanship that last got Hezbollah entangled in a war with Israel.  Even though it could get in some hits with cross-border rocket fire, the group’s leaders know that in a new clash it would get badly bloodied by its militarily more capable foe.

Russian mercenaries, a discrete weapon in Syria

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 05:39:45 -0500

(image) The death of Russian citizens in Syria from a US coalition strike last week, which has been played down by both Moscow and Washington, has exposed the role of Russian mercenaries in the multi-front conflict. The incident followed a steady trickle of reports about Russians dying in battle in Syria while employed as guns for hire in a privately-owned outfit whose role may be securing oilfields for President Bashar al-Assad. Russia on Thursday has finally recognised that five Russian citizens, not officially affiliated with the Russian military, were likely killed in the strikes in eastern Syria, in the first admission of non-military combat casualties.

The Atlantic Daily: Hope Will Come Next

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 17:29:45 -0500

(image) What We’re Following The Russia Probe: Special Counsel Robert Mueller has indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies for allegedly interfering with the U.S. political system. The indictment describes a campaign to influence the 2016 presidential election by staging political rallies and posing as grassroots advocates for the candidates, among other activities. Here’s the full text. The document leaves many of the most contentious questions of Mueller's probe unanswered, but one thing seems clear: As much as President Trump has denied it, there’s now little room for doubt that Russia sought to interfere in 2016.

‘Lost’ ancient Mexican city had as many buildings as Manhattan, laser map shows

The sprawling urban centre of Angamuco which was part of the Purépecha empire that peaked in the 16th century was detected by an aerial laser mapping technique called the Lidar system. An aircraft beamed out laser pulses and experts later examined the signals that bounced back from the ground, which helped them pull together a 3D map of the city near modern day Morelia in the state of Michoacan in western Mexico.

Florida shooting: Donald Trump blames FBI's Russia probe for failure to spot suspect's warning signs

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 00:06:54 -0500

Donald Trump said on Saturday that the FBI had missed the warning signs of the suspect in the Florida high school shooting because it had been "spending too much time" investigating his campaign's links with Russia. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has come under pressure in recent days after it admitted it failed to act on a tip off it received about 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, who is accused of killing 17 people at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. First it was revealed that the FBI failed to delve into a YouTube comment posted by a "Nikolas Cruz" that said, "Im going to be a professional school shooter." The FBI said it could not determine who made it. On Friday, the bureau said it had failed to act on a tip that Cruz had a "desire to kill people," disturbing social media posts and access to a gun. The US President has also faced criticism for not addressing the subject of gun control in the days after the shooting. Survivors of the shooting and relatives of the victims have demanded action after it emerged that Cruz was able to legally buy a semi-automatic firearm despite a history of troubling and violent behaviour. Mr Trump laid the blame at the FBI and the Democrats in a pair of tweets on Saturday. Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 18, 2018 Just like they don’t want to solve the DACA problem, why didn’t the Democrats pass gun control legislation when they had both the House & Senate during the Obama Administration. Because they didn’t want to, and now they just talk!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 17, 2018 The president travelled to Florida on Friday to meet privately with victims of the shooting and hailed the heroics of first responders. But he extended few public words of consolation to those in deep mourning, nor did he address the debate over gun violence that has raged since Wednesday's mass shooting. At a rally on Saturday, a survivor attacked him over the multi-million-dollar support his campaign received from the National Rifle Association and for overturning a measure implemented by former President Barack Obama that required extra scrutiny of some gun buyers with a history of mental illness.  "We are going to be the last mass shooting... We are going to change the law," Emma Gonzalez vowed. "They say that tougher gun laws do not decrease gun violence. We call BS!" Florida high school shooting survivor Emma Gonzalez[...]
