South African journalist Getahune Bekele said she's a "consummate ally of grubby despots." Others condemn her bloody hands. Banality of evil describes her. Death and destruction don't bother her. She was quoted once saying, "The only thing we have to do is look the other way."
Since early 2011, ongoing blame game strategy holds Syria responsible for Western-enlisted death squad crimes.

...[I]t was...ultimately proven...that thousands of calls had been placed to voters who had earlier professed support for candidates opposing the Conservatives. The calls...were fraudulently represented as coming from an official body overseeing elections logistics. Voters were erroneously redirected to polling stations where they were not registered or to locations that had no polling stations at all...[T]he source of the information used to place the calls...was controlled and maintained by the federal Conservative Party.

However they may stumble, these organizations, advocates, and healthcare professionals are interweaving a unified response to guarantee individual safety and universal healthcare as a human right for all people regardless of their migratory status.
Anyone exposing government or military wrongdoing can be fired, fined, prosecuted, court martialed, and/or imprisoned.
On June 3, trial proceedings began. They'll last well into summer. What's ongoing reflects much more than Manning alone. We're all in this together. Freedom in America is on trial.

Describing “new levels of cruelty and brutality” the report admits that the opposition in Syria is dominated by violent Islamist elements responsible for horrific crimes against the Syrian population...While the report claims that the opposition’s crimes did not “reach the intensity and scale” of those committed by the Assad regime, the facts it reports suggest otherwise. The report depicts the rebels as ruling the areas it controls through murder and despotic terror.
Abbas serves illegitimately as Palestine's president. Israel rigged his 2005 election. He was anointed, not elected. His term expired in January 2009. He refuses to call new elections.
America honors its worst. It persecutes its best. Manning is heroic. He risked great personal harm. He did so to reveal vital truths. People have a right to know. Washington has no right to conceal them.

Scenes of [Accident and Emergency] units with patients waiting to be seen lying on trolleys in corridors for hours have become commonplace in UK hospitals...“It became obvious...that we were all suffering with the same unrelenting, unremitting pressures in our emergency units and we felt we were bordering on it becoming unsafe…. What we’re seeing in our emergency units reflects a problem throughout the whole system.”

The press in the U.S. continues to dutifully report on the “objective diplomacy” by the Obama administration to broker a “peaceful” resolution to the conflict in Syria...Diplomacy, for the U.S., has meant calling for regime change from the outset and then encouraging Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Israel, their client states in the region, to arm, train and provide political support for a military campaign with the objective of effectively dismembering the Syrian State.
Palestinian Jaffa is now Tel Aviv's Jaffa municipality. Six mass graves were discovered. They contain remains of at least hundreds of Palestinian victims.
It's too early to know what's ahead. Clearly people are fed up. They're angry. They're sick and tired of a regime drunk with power.

The White House has said in the past few days that its top priority in Syria is to impose regime change, but this is a recipe for a very long conflict. Why should Assad and his government surrender when they are more than holding their own on the battlefield?...And Britain and France are playing a small but mischievous role in ensuring the slaughter in Syria continues.
