 US-NATO Campaign To Justify Syria War Disintegrates As  Attack Looms
 By Thomas Gaist & Alex Lantier

Washington's campaign to justify war against Syria is disintegrating, as it becomes ever clearer that the war is illegal, and that Washington has no evidence to back up charges that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime used chemical weapons in Ghouta. Despite press reports of an imminent US-NATO attack, US and British officials suggested yesterday that they might delay launching the war

'War On Chemical Weapons': Obama Traps Himself Into Syrian Combat
 By Pepe Escobar

Only a few days before the 12th anniversary of 9/11, Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama might be fighting side by side with… al-Qaeda, as he was foolish enough to be trapped by his own rhetoric on Syria

Syria Is Not The Problem
 By Janis Schmidt

Why, oh why is Obama saber rattling with Syria, pretending that Syria has chemical weapons? while forest fires are raging? while we don't have enough fire fighters to put out the blaze in this country? How stupid is that? This is Iraq and WMD all over again. Is this what the people want? A war with Syria? While teachers and police are being laid off? While people are being evicted from their homes, and their homes bulldozed to make way for new boxed housing such as the warehouses of the 19th century to warehouse the workers? While most jobs are sent overseas to be worked for slave wage labor?

NY Times Gasses Its Own People, re: Syria
 By Mickey Z.

If the reports are true or not, I'd never underestimate the horror of chemical weapons (a.k.a. WMD). Rather, I'll shine a light on the "the scale" of the hypocrisy. The only nation ever to use nuclear weapons -- purposely targeting civilians, no less -- wants us to share their outrage that the Syrian government may or may not have used WMD

Opposition To Iraq War May Save Syria
 By David Swanson

Opposition to a U.S.-led attack on Syria is growing rapidly in Europe and the United States, drawing its strength from public awareness that the case made for attacking Iraq had holes in it. A majority in the United States, still very much aware of Iraq war deceptions, opposes arming the "rebel" force in Syria, so heavily dominated by foreign fighters and al Qaeda. And a majority opposes U.S. military action in Syria. But that public opinion is only just beginning to get expressed as activism

Once Upon A Palestine
 A Poem By Mhara Costello

Once upon a distant time, there was a land called Palestine
 Is it yours or is it mine, this land they once called Palestine
 And who am I to stand and stare, in disbelief at land stripped bare
 Banished people, stolen homes, broken dreams, crumbling stones
 Of ancient graves and ghostly moans, silenced by Israeli drones

Who Killed Narendra Dabholkar?
 By Ram Puniyani

It took Dabholkar's sacrifice for Mahrashtra Government to pass and bill against blind faith for which Daholkar was struggling from decades. He had collected data that it is women who are the biggest victims of those practicing black magic. He had been talking of taking on the highly rewarding trade of gems and their magic powers, in due course. Alas, that was not to be! Will other state Governments follow suit and try to bring a control on the flourishing trade of blind faith, black magic and its ilk?
