Syria, Russia, Iran Condemn US Plan to Bomb Syria

Syria and its allies Russia and Iran warned on Thursday that any United States air strike on Syrian soil to defeat the Islamic State (IS) would not be legal.

The warning came one day after President Barack Obama announced he will authorize to expand the current attacks over IS positions in Iraq to Syria.

President Obama also insisted that the United States and its allies will not cooperate with the current Syrian government to fight against IS and that they will provide new equipment to the moderate rebels who try to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“Any kind of action executed without the consent of the Syrian government will be taken as an attack to Syria,” Ali Haida, the Syrian minister for National reconciliation, warned Monday.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry questioned the international coalition of about 20 countries that support the U.S. strategy against IS.

The coalition “is shrouded in serious ambiguities and there are severe misgivings about its determination to sincerely fight the root causes of terrorism,” said the Foreign Affairs Ministry, The Guardian reported.

Meanwhile, a Russian official asserted that Moscow will not support any international military action inside Syria without the approval of the United Nations Security Council.

“Any actions executed without the UN Security Council approval will be taken as an act of aggression, a gross violation of international law,” said a spokesperson of the Russian Foreign Affairs Ministry.

China, who along with Russia has blocked several UN resolutions against Assad government, said that it supported the fight against terror but that the national sovereignty should be respected.

A large amount of ammunition for multiple rocket launchers was also unloaded from the aircraft. This was reported in the headquarters of the militia.

Donbass People’s Republics: Ceasefire and class struggle

By Greg Butterfield, Workers World

Novorossia needs Russian solidarity and assistance. But if it is to be anything other than a temporary, unstable buffer zone, then the workers and their militia will have to transcend whatever brakes Putin and the Russian oligarchs attempt to put on their struggle. 

They will need to take popular measures to empower the workers, and appeal to the Russian and Ukrainian masses, while striving to maintain a strong anti-fascist, anti-imperialist united front.

Colonel Cassad: About the 'truce' between Ukraine and Novorossiya
Because the parties cannot determine the parameters of resolving the crisis, the war continues on its own. The resumption of full-scale military action appears unavoidable, because the USA will push the junta towards forceful destruction of Novorossia.
Russia, on the other hand, will fall into the very same fork of decisions: between a forceful scenario (military intervention or “impolite merchandisers” is not all that important – this is just a method of implementing a decision that was taken) and dumping Novorossia (stopping military support, agreeing to “united Ukraine”, and arm-twisting for those commanders of the army of Novorossia who will start to ask “unpleasant questions).
The main difficulty of the negotiators is that the standard reaction of the militia to the proposal of “united pro-Russian Ukraine” is “Which fucking Ukraine?!” 
Some still cannot understand that the war of the junta against Novorossia is just one dimension of the conflict. Without resolving the tensions between the USA and the Russian Federation there won’t be a full-fledged peace there.
So, the Minsk negotiations and the obscene piece of paper that was signed there is just another attempt to jump out of the same unpleasant dilemma. One of these decisions will have to be made in the end.

Ferguson: 'High Threat Team' of Former US Navy SEALs to be Deployed to St Louis Area

With clashes between police and protesters increasing in Ferguson, reports indicate that a high threat team, comprising of Special Ops contractors and former Navy SEALs, will be deployed to contain the situation.

Racial tensions in the Missouri city escalated further on Tuesday, after another African American man was shot down by the police, within a week of the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

The decision to deploy Special Ops contractors and former Navy SEALs was announced by a private military security service provider - Asymmetric Solutions - on its Twitter account.

On August 21, 2014 war criminal Michael Oren was speaking at a JUF fundraiser in the Hilton Hotel 720 W. Michigan Ave, Chicago. At the same time, Students for Justice in Palestine-Chicago planned a mass die-in in front of the Hilton entrance. Many including myself laid down in silence for about 10 minutes before the chanting resumed.
