Which side are you on?

International Developments

? UN estimates:  “five million Syrians have been displaced inside the country [and] 2 million . . . have fled to neighboring countries.”  International funding to relieve the suffering is “a ‘drop in the sea'” compared to need.  Phil Williams of ABC tweet: “Another huge camp being prepared in Jordanian desert to hold 120,000 more Syrian refugees”.

? “Two-thirds of Britons [polled] do not care if refusing to intervene militarily in Syria damages the US-UK ‘special relationshp’.”

? “[Syrian] Canadian protesters oppose U.S. intervention in Syria”

? “Syria Asks U.N. To Block U.S. Strike”.

? Brief interview with Syria’s Deputy Foreign Minister, Faysal al-Mikdad, on the impact of the potential US-French action against Syria.

? “A French intelligence report [on the chemical attacks in Syria] suggests the ‘massive and coordinated’ attack was launched from government-held areas”.

? “Cyprus cannot be used as a launching pad for attacks on Syria” according to Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides”.

? “Navy Carrier Strike Group [including  the USS Nimitz] Rerouted for Possible Help in Syria”.

? “U.S. Marines Website Hacked By Syrian Electronic Army”.

? “Taliban attacks Nato base in Afghanistan.”  3 ‘insurgents’ killed.

Money Matters USA

? “How Labor Day was hijacked:  5 reminders of the day’s real purpose:  Yes, plenty of holidays amount to just days off and barbecues.  But this one has become particularly corrupted.”

? “It is not surprising that religious leaders have been conspicuously present on many of the fast food workers’ picket lines. . . . priests and ministers, rabbi and imams . . . The nation’s largest labor-religious coalition, Interfaith Worker Justice, . . . is sponsoring Labor Day prayer services in cities across the country honoring the dignity of labor”.

? “Wall Street Eager to See Larry Summers Nominated Fed Chair: Summers likely to be next Fed chair not despite failures but because of them.”  Not only that, but the “end-game memo”  written by Timmeh Geithner involved “Larry Summers in deal that helped setup the global economic crisis”.

? Director of the Detroit Institute of Arts: selling items from the art collection “will not only ‘threaten the millage proceeds . . . but . . . would also be equivalent to shutting the museum’s doors.”  Doesn’t appear that Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr or staff has had much contact with the DIA’s office, either.
