Micro and macro agressions

"Exclusive: Russia, despite draw down, shipping more to Syria than removing"

"Russia claims Turkish NGOs are 'main supplier' of extremists in Syria" "Turkey is key supplier of weapons, military hardware to ISIS - Russian envoy to UN"

"“Anti-Semites like Russia” – The Guardian"  "Colleges have become hypersensitive to racial prejudice. Why not anti-Semitism? – Lawrence H. Summers/The Washington Post"  Summers and 'microagressions'!  And just when you thought they couldn't possibly lay it on any thicker.

"Trump Way to the Left of Clinton on Foreign Policy – In Fact, He’s Damn Near Anti-Empire".  Actually, it is impossible not to be way to the left of Clinton on foreign policy.

"Martyn Mclaughlin: Punishing Bosnian Serb trials reporter is an outrage"  There seem to be differences of opinion in the anti-Serb industry of just how anti-Serb it is appropriate to be.

"What Drives US Policy Toward Israel?":
". . . if supporting “shared democratic values” is not what motivates Clinton’s kowtowing, what does? The answer is naked political opportunism. Here is the formula: (1) American politics runs on domestically garnered money, and lots of it: running for office, just about any office from dog catcher to president, requires constant financial solicitation; (2) special interests, be they economic concerns, professional organizations, or ideologically motivated groups are a major source of these funds; (3) in exchange for their largesse, such interests require political support for their causes. Here enters, among others, the Zionists, whose deep pockets, ability to shape media messages, and rally voters, both Jewish and Christian, are well known. An alliance with the Zionists is politically profitable while incurring their anger is sometimes politically fatal."
