DAMASCUS (AFP) – The US embassy in Syria shut its doors on Thursday as thousands marched through Damascus to protest at a deadly American raid on a village near the Iraqi border that Syria branded a barbaric act.
THE NIGHTMARE OF ALL TIME
So much bleakness. Pain unrivaled and horrors defy spoken word. How much worse will it get? I am afraid so much worse, so, so, so much. How to call to the best humanity has to give?? How many minutes do we have to act and how many will? Voting is not the ticket, but it symbolizes what could be, but truthfully, won't. I am utterly astounded at the hope pinned on a mere man saddled with his corporate foundation endowing him with the thrust so essential for a shred of voice in this corrupt and defiled country. Even if he does live thru the threats and exposure of true red, white and blue bigotry, how much will he capitulate to the killing machine devastating all life and the future?
