It's on threads like this one (ie it's the end of the world) that I miss @ayatoilet's commentary :)

Said jan really don't mean to harp on this 'alarmed' theme but, scarier stuff is much closer to home.
Persian Gulf is practically a gigantic floating gunpowder barrel about to explode.
ISIS is about to use chemical weapons fighting back the liberation of Mosul (that location is under 8 hours away from Iranian borders).
Taliban is wreaking havoc in Afghanistan,...

Good luck to humanity, and then some!

Hopefully not!

Instituting a no-fly zone in Syria will probably require the US to move forward without legal authorization from the United Nations Security Council (the public justification being on the grounds of human rights). Scary stuff.

Sometimes being alarmed and paying attention to unpleasant details is very much called for.
This 'no-fly-zone' in Syria won't happen since Russia and China in UN's security council will nip it in the bud.
But in Persian Gulf the most extensive military presence of naval military and air forces, since WWII, have been accumulating for a long while now.
Saudis latest war games in Persian Gulf and strait of Hormuz (two days ago) was just one more 'straw.'
Is the world heading towards WWIII?
Hopefully not.


What's so funny....

@ashianeh, according to Juan Cole the U.S. attack on the Syrian army was "likely friendly fire and a simple mistake". I love Juan's articles and often side with his positions, but short on facts & heavy on unsubstantiated opinion, his argument was hardly persuasive (www.juancole.com/2016/10/mideast-apocalypse-military.html)

I hesitate to sound like such an alarmist, but with growing tensions around the world (Syria, Kashmir, South/North Korea, KSA/Iran, Turkey/Kurds, South China sea, etc.), sagging economies, re-alignment of decade old strategic and economic alliances, growing refugee and environmental crisis, increased government sponsored cyber-warfare and continued terror attacks by the likes of ISIS/Al Qaeda, it's potentially a recipe for disaster (a "perfect storm" if you will).

As much as I'm a glass is half full kind of guy, I'm very concerned with the trajectory of world affairs. A potential "no-fly zone" in Syria could be the straw that breaks the camels back.

"The Israelis and many in mainstream Western media may very well praise Peres as a hero, but for Palestinians, Lebanese and a multitude of others he is another war criminal who escaped any accountability for his countless misdeeds."

There's no shortage of war criminals in the world and our tax dollars frequently fund such people. Israel's brazen disregard of numerous UN resolutions can be chalked up to us (America) enabling its inhumane behavior towards Palestinians. Not only do we help fund their discriminatory policies, practices and onerous restrictions on the movement of Palestinians, we morally approve of them by not holding Israel accountable at the Security Council.

SAVAK loving monarchist morons are the ones with childish delusions about non-existence of racism in Israel. Only they consistently deny this fact.

The Shimon Peres Palestinians Can’t Forget
The bulk of his career actually undermined the peace he claimed to be seeking.

The same reason that US as a society that is gripped by institutionalized racism toward half of it;s own population (Blacks, Mexicans and American Indians) have had respect or solidarity with Africans and other countries around the world.
Needless to say everyone know about Rodney riot in 1991, and recent riots in Charlotte, North Carolina and Ferguson Missouri.

Here is respect or solidarity with Africans and other countries:

"U.S. development assistance to Africa creates many opportunities for the United States beyond humanitarian aid, such as strategic national security partners and increased economic prospects. "
"Total bilateral U.S. development assistance from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the State Department to sub-Saharan Africa nearly quadrupled from roughly $1.94 billion in FY2002 to an estimated $7.08 billion in FY2012.[1] "

Solidarity and help to Spanish country Guatemala:

According to our research engine:
The U.S. Government gave a total of $143,293,432 to Guatemala in 2012:

The aid was broken down in the following manner:
Economic
Child Survival and Health: $-195,650
Development Assistance: $47,871,358
Economic Support Fund/Security Support Assistance: $15,790,742
Food For Education: $5,999,568
Global Health and Child Survival: $20,910,691
Narcotics Control: $10,558,441
Nonproliferation, Anti-Terrorism, Demining and Related: $160,233
Other Active Grant Programs: $5,995,647
Other State Assistance: $1,473,036
Other USAID Assistance: $3,354,642
Other USDA Assistance: $18,500
Peace Corps: $3,564,086
Title II: $14,543,038


"The United States is pledging $350 million to help tsunami victims, a tenfold increase over its first wave of aid,"

This article is posted by "admin" so it's close to impossible to take their claims seriously. Althoughhhh, I'm now even more curious about the 'security concerns' behind the cancellation of Tuesday's Wikileaks announcement. The plot thickens.

No, because politicians and mainstream media are too busy with the passing of "Peres the peace maker" and US elections circus.

I am sure there are plenty wrong doing in countries around the world. It is NOT only Israel. We can see it anywhere. No society is perfect. Give me an example of any society which is perfect and doesn't have any short coming ? NONE.
We are kind and loving people, but we see signs in the front of park in city of Isfahan and barber shops saying : NO AFGHAN ENTER.
Below is NOT Israel, it is Lebanon where the money of Iranians goes every year.
Look at the sign what it says. It says in Arabic, Urdo and English::
IRANIANS NOT ALLOWED
Your problem is that you think each establishment should be perfect. This kind of rigid thinking goes from former system in Iran all the way to the most democratic society such as England or Israel. You think societies and it's establishment should be perfect. Things doesn't work that way my friend. God is only perfect.
Show me any society that doesn't have any issue, I will show you someone who is suffering from memory loss.
