Islamic State ‘Dead Set’ on Using Chemical Weapons

Part of the Islamic State terror group’s plan to turn the northern Iraqi city of Mosul into “hell on earth” could well include a barrage of homemade chemical weapons. U.S. military officials fully expect IS militants to unleash their chemical weapons arsenal as Iraqi and Kurdish forces advance on the self-declared caliphate’s Iraqi capital. “This is real. They’re dead set ...

This is what Aleppo is

Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson made it clear that he has no idea what the city of Aleppo is, which is rather problematic for someone who is running for president. The former governor of New Mexico was asked Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” what he’d do about the catastrophic situation in the besieged Syrian city. “What is Aleppo?” he responded. Well, Gary, this is what Aleppo is 1. Primary Arena In The Battle For Syria The government of Syrian President Bashar al Assad has been battling rebel groups since 2012 for control of what was once Syria’s largest city and its business hub. None of the international attempts to put in place “cessation of hostilities” agreements have worked, mainly because Russia continues to support the Assad regime with airstrikes. The city is under constant fire. “Death provides a relief for those civilians living here,” aid worker Rami Adham told The Huffington Post earlier this year. “I’ve numerous times people congratulating each other on the loss of certain relatives.” A photo of 5 ­year ­old Omran Daqneesh, covered in blood and dust following a bombing in Aleppo, went viral several weeks ago due to its raw depiction of the suffering residents face day in and day out. 2. Millions Of Displaced People Constant streams of airstrikes and a total lack of food, shelter and medical supplies have turned Aleppo into a totally uninhabitable place. For those civilians who survive the strikes, they’re often required to leave their homes in search of relative safety. Sometimes, military attacks have displaced upwards of 25,000 people in one night. People are forced to move into unstable displaced persons camps, joining the ranks of almost 7 million internally displaced Syrians. The other likely outcome is fleeing elsewhere. Almost 5 million Syrian refugees have already tried to seek safety in countries like Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey, and across Europe. 3. Zero Humanitarian Aid The fighting in Aleppo is so intense that all types of humanitarian assistance, ...

5 explosive secret intelligence memos on Syria everyone must read [VIDEO]

GLOBAL On Syria, British and American policymakers tend to assume that their governments are chiefly motivated by a concern for civilian life and peace in the region.

France Working to De-Radicalize Its Mosques

The problem is not that foreign charities directly subsidize jihadi activities, but that they promote a highly aggressive ideology with a political agenda, whose followers are more likely to take the next step into violent action. Fighting terrorism is not just the responsibility of the government, the prime minister said, but rather all of society needs to get involved. France ...
