Late Night FDL: Shaking The Tree

Peter Gabriel – Shaking The Tree

Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, Sting, and others are contributing to the Dalai Lama’s latest tribute album, The Art Of Peace: Songs For Tibet II…

Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush are among artists contributing tracks to an album that marks the 80th birthday of the Dalai Lama.

They’ll appear on The Art Of Peace: Songs For Tibet II, alongside Elbow, Sting and others to be announced.

The Art Of Peace Foundation have set up a PledgeMusic campaign to support the release, which follows Grammy-nominated 2008 title Songs For Tibet: The Art Of Peace. It’s being produced and musically directed by Rupert Hine, who oversaw the original release.

The foundation says: “The Dalai Lama is a unique beacon of wisdom and insight for millions throughout the world.

“He turns 80 on July 6. To recognise this milestone, the foundation is producing an album to honour his vision of compassion, non-violence and peace.”

Proceeds from sales will go towards the preservation and promotion of Tibetan culture.

What’s on your mind onite…?

    BEIRUT: The U.N.’s special envoy to Lebanon Wednesday said she was determined to help the Lebanese Army repel militant attacks on the country’s eastern borders.

    “I would like to assure that we … are eager to make sure the Lebanese Army receives everything it needs,” U.N. Special Coordinator for Lebanon Sigrid Kaag said after meeting with Defense Minister Samir Moqbel. “We will provide a detailed statement to the U.N. Security Council on July 8 about the security situation in Lebanon,” she added, according to a Defense Ministrystatement.

    The meeting comes in light of the ongoing clashes pitting Hezbollah and the Syrian army against Sunni militants on Lebanon’s eastern borders.

    Query…If NATO starts anything with Russia, could/would Russia pressure the BRICS countries to pull out of any trade agreements ?

  • dubinsky

    could/would any of them do so for Russia’s benefit?

    The real question is at the bottom most level. How do you even get Joe Sixpack and his over weight wife to stop buying Roundup at Lowes and junk at Walmart. Which is where it needs to happen.

    In an editorial in Lebanon’s Daily Star, Young suggests that the Iranians and the hezzies will attempt to have the Assads form a rump state in Syria and parts of Lebanon.

    Michael Young| The Daily Star

    ” Recently, there have been reports that Iran intends to send several thousand combatants to Syria, including Iranians as well as Iraqi, Afghan and other Shiites. This followed remarks by the head of the Quds Force of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, Qasem Soleimani, in which he said that Iranian and Syrian plans in the Syrian war would “surprise” the world.

    The purpose of these reinforcements is to come to the aid of an overstretched Syrian army, which has taken heavy losses and has had trouble finding new recruits. The broader aim is, reportedly, to consolidate Bashar Assad’s hold over Damascus, central Syria, around Homs and Hama, and the coastal areas. To pursue such a strategy it appears that Iran has persuaded Assad to withdraw his forces from outlying regions of Syria so that they can regroup in more defensible positions.”

    ” …there are indications that the regime is indeed pursuing a fallback strategy to the Damascus-Homs-Latakia axis. There have been signs, for instance, in Swaida that the regime may be preparing to remove forces, while the takeover of Palmyra as well as of the 52nd Brigade military base in the south of the country, like the Al-Thala air base nearby, may have been facilitated by the fact that the army expected to pull out anyway.

    In addition, Hezbollah’s offensive in the Qalamoun area is, by most accounts, a part of this broader plan. By securing control of the region, which lies between Lebanon and the Damascus-Homs highway, the party hopes to do two things: protect communication lines between the capital and the coastal areas and secure continuity between Shiite areas in Lebanon and the prospective Alawite-controlled ministate taking form in Syria.

    This has long been on the mind of the Syrian regime and its allies. It is also one reason why the Syrian army and Iran’s proxies have engaged in mass sectarian cleansing in Homs province early on in the Syrian war, as well as in Qalamoun in 2013, sending well over a million Syrian Sunnis into Lebanon.”

    And how will GRExit play into all of this ?

    I get the feeling though that the reason Obama is so anxious to get these secret trade deals through is he is hoping to avoid another economic catastrophe. I think he will be sadly disappointed. The catastrophe will unfold regardless.

  • terry sexton

    you know these trade agreements are bad news for 99% of americans

  • dubinsky
  • Chris Maukonen

    From an FB post:

    “A white man shot 8 people at a Black church in Charleston, South Carolina.
    How much do you want to bet the media will refuse to call him a terrorist?
    Prediction: In less than 24 hours, we will hear reports about how he is “mentally ill.”

    And, whatever the results of the investigation into the shooting, white
    people will not be asked to collectively apologize. (Muslims, on the
    other hand, virtually always are.)
    ‪#‎WhiteTerrorism‬”

  • Chris Maukonen

    So was TARP and everything else.

  • http://firedoglake.com/ CTuttle
  • dubinsky

    if the trade deals are bad for 99% of Americans how could they stave off “catastrophe” and why would Obama push them?

  • dubinsky
  • terry sexton

    are you saying amercan legislation is, well unamerican

  • Chris Maukonen

    To save the elites of course. That was what TARP was all about. That’s what the trade deals are all about. Same people. Wall Street and the investors and bankers.

    if you postulate that Obama doesn’t give a shit about the American people, why would you think that he would give a shit about the elites?
