Truth, Lies and Afghanistan

By Lt. Col. Daniel L. Davis

I spent last year in Afghanistan, visiting and talking with U.S. troops and their Afghan partners. — What I saw bore no resemblance to rosy official statements by U.S. military leaders about conditions on the ground. Continue

Civil war rages as 25 killed in Syria: Upwards of 17 civilians were killed and dozens wounded as security forces renewed their bombardment of Homs, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Armed groups fire missiles into Homs: According to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, at least 17 people have been killed in Homs on Monday. Government troops have been fighting terrorist groups in Homs for several days.

Syrian army defectors form higher military council: The council, named “The Higher Revolutionary Council” and designed to supersede the Free Syrian Army (FSA), said its head was General Mustafa Ahmed al-Sheikh, the highest ranking deserter who had fled to Turkey.

After Russia’s UN veto, US talks of “coalition of the willing” against Syria: The discussion on the resolution was a political manoeuvre from the outset, designed either to force Moscow and Beijing into agreeing to a UN cover for a Libya-style operation against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, or justify a predetermined alternative route to regime-change.

Russia, China Vetoes Spur Western Hysteria, Indecent Comments: Russia and China condemned Monday the angry Western reaction to its veto of a UN resolution over Syria where US envoy expressed her “disgust” and France Defense Minister said such countries deserve a “kick in the ass”!

U.S. closes Syria Embassy, pulls all staff: Robert Ford, the American ambassador, and 17 other U.S. officials left Syria and were expected to travel back to the United States. Ford informed Syrian authorities of the decision to leave earlier in the day, State Department officials said. Two diplomats left by air and the others went overland to Jordan.

House Intel Chair: Israel Attack on Iran Would Harm U.S. National Security: “If Israel does a unilateral strike, this could be a real problem for the national security interests of the United States,” Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., said today

No Evidence Iran Would Attack U.S.: Obama: : Obama said: “We don’t see any evidence they have those intentions or capabilities.”

An Act Of War: US freezes all assets of Iranian government and central bank: US President Barack Obama signed an executive order on Monday imposing new, stricter sanctions on Iran and its central bank, saying a broader asset freeze was necessary because Iranian banks were concealing transactions.

Iran vows to retaliate against any country that stages attack: Gen. Hossein Salami, deputy commander of the elite Revolutionary Guard, Iran’s most powerful military force, did not elaborate. His comments appeared to be a warning to Iran’s neighbors not to let their territory or airspace be used as a base for an attack.
