Syria decides to down a Turkish fighter jet which may or may not have been on in Syrian airspace and no warning were given. However In September 2007, Israeli fighter jets destroyed a mysterious complex in the Syrian desert and what did the Syrians do? Yeah you guessed it. Bugger all. Go figure. I thought Syria was at war with Israel?


On 28th May 2012, the Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs Gen. Martin Dempsey said: “the Pentagon is ready for the option of military intervention to end the violence in Syria”.

It took them over 16 months to say that, which indicates that the West is afraid of real change in Syria unlike the change of face that occurred in other parts of the Arab world. I say let the people of Syria decide it’s own future. They do not want the solution of Tunisia, Libya, Yemen and Egypt.

Yesterday marked the 16th anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre when at least 8,000 Bosnian Muslims were massacred by Serb forces. Only last week, the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia found the Dutch state responsible for the deaths of 3 Muslim men during the massacre after Dutch soldiers handed them over to Serb forces. May justice be done for the remaining thousands of victims.


U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton condemning the ruling of the second conviction of jailed oil and gas tycoon Mikhail Khodokovsky, saying that it raised “serious questions about selective prosecution and about the rule of law being overshadowed by political considerations.”

Mr Khodorkovsky is a billionaire who posed a challenge to Vladimir Putin during his presidency. So in many ways this conviction seen as personal.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry on Tuesday fired back at U.S. and European criticism, telling Western leaders to mind their own business.

How sweet is it to see the US and other Western nations expressing their concern and outrage over this trial on Russian Soil. YET the silence which is almost deafening over the Guantanamo detainees facing their 10th year with charge or trail.

Well done! for yet another double standard foreign policy and the world cowering to the bullies.
