Syria Becomes the 7th Predominantly Muslim Country Bombed by 2009 Nobel Peace Laureate — Glenn Greenwald
Sep. 23 2014
The U.S. today began bombing targets inside Syria, in concert with its lovely and inspiring group of five allied regimes: Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and Jordan.
That means that Syria becomes the 7th predominantly Muslim country bombed by 2009 Nobel Peace Laureate Barack Obama—after Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Libya and Iraq.
The utter lack of interest in what possible legal authority Obama has to bomb Syria is telling indeed: Empires bomb who they want, when they want, for whatever reason (indeed, recall that Obama bombed Libya even after Congress explicitly voted against authorization to use force, and very few people seemed to mind that abject act of lawlessness; constitutional constraints are not for warriors and emperors).
It was just over a year ago that Obama officials were insisting that bombing and attacking Assad was a moral and strategic imperative. Instead, Obama is now bombing Assad’s enemies while politely informing his regime of its targets in advance. It seems irrelevant on whom the U.S. wages war; what matters it that it be at war, always and forever.
Six weeks of bombing hasn’t budged ISIS in Iraq, but it has caused ISIS recruitment to soar. That’s all predictable: the U.S. has known for years that what fuels and strengthens anti-American sentiment (and thus anti-American extremism) is exactly what they keep doing: aggression in that region. If you know that, then they know that. At this point, it’s more rational to say they do all of this not despite triggering those outcomes, but because of it. Continuously creating and strengthening enemies is a feature, not a bug. It is what justifies the ongoing greasing of the profitable and power-vesting machine of Endless War.
If there is anyone who actually believes that the point of all of this is a moral crusade to vanquish the evil-doers of ISIS (as the U.S. fights alongside its close Saudi friends), please read Professor As’ad AbuKhalil’s explanation today of how Syria is a multi-tiered proxy war. As the disastrous Libya “intervention” should conclusively and permanently demonstrate, the U.S. does not bomb countries for humanitarian objectives. Humanitarianism is the pretense, not the purpose.

"The Police say the fire was accidental."

Oh. Riiiiight. The Police. The Ferguson Police. The Police who stepped on and let their dogs urinate on the Mike Brown Memorial. The Ferguson Police who covered up Mike Brown’s shooting, the Police who started martial law and shot rubber and wood bullets into crowds of peaceful protestors. The Ferguson Police. That Police??? I DUNNOOOOOO.

Oh no what happened now :(

it’s literally the worst. i’m in mourning.

also the only people who were even buying those were people who don’t/ can’t eat dairy. people who eat dairy just buy reese’s because they’re cheaper and fucking delicious to be honest, like i remember those okay- that’s why justin’s was a god-send. anyway justin’s will totally probz change it back within a few months JUST A THEORY

What the fucking hell WHYY

WHAT DID THEY DO

someone tell me please

I believe they now contain milk

This is very sad news, on a happier note: PB cups are actually pretty easy to make, just melt a chocolate bar, pour some into a little cupcake paper thing and let it harden, add PB (you can make the PB yummiest by adding sugar), cover it with more melty chocolate and let that harden :) all done.

Growing up and even now I have learned in depth about wild animals and other creatures. But when I learned about farm animals and other commonly eaten animals I was taught “milk comes from cows!” “chickens lay eggs!” very basic facts about how we consume and use them. When really these animals are so interesting and are not just “dumb” or “food” animals. People disconnect themselves from these animals so they feel less guilty when eating them.

These kinds of posts make me feel like it’s a contest to see who deserves basic decency. Kinda really bugs me.

Then again, seeing stuff like this before I was vegan probably helped me relearn the very common knowledge that animals have traits and nuances. Idk.

Fish do feel pain but they dont process it the way humans or other mammals do. Just because they do feel pain, doesnt necessarily mean that that pain hurts. Further studies are needed.

Or like actually it really doesn’t even matter if they feel pain. They are creatures deserving of autonomy regardless of whether it hurts when we exploit them.

Animals are subject to predators in the wild. We are simply another one of those predators.

There are people who still rely on eating fish to survive, but those of us with access to the average growing season and grocery store do not need to eat fish. The ocean is actually in very bad shape because of the way humans have been overfishing. We aren’t acting like natural predators; we take way more than we need and with little to no regard for the surrounding wildlife and vegetation. I’m on mobile so I can’t get you sources, but it’s not hard to find. Just look up overfishing and by-catch.

DANG. That’ll get the message across. The movement is gaining momentum!

LOVE.

if tumblr is worth a crap this will get a million notes±

Considering the conversations I have here about it, Tumblr is worth nothing, given those parameters. The only way this shit will get over 10k is a bunch of fucking whiners crying about their right to kill animals and destroy the environment because they don’t go to SeaWorld, drive a hybrid, and recycle.

To us, this is homeschooling. We saw a color wheel in a book and kiddo was very interested. We took the opportunity to bust out some paint and learn about mixing colors. Now he is sporting words like tertiary at 3 and actually understanding what it means. #unschool #homeschool

And I really don’t share this to brag, if it comes off that way. My kid isn’t any more special than anyone else’s. He’s advanced in his own way which is what unschooling is all about. I share this to show you that kids are capable of so much more than is expected of them in our culture.  When you focus on what they are actually interested in and not what you think they should be learning, it’s amazing what can happen. I realize that not everyone can always do this but whenever you have the opportunity, take it!
