Kiev: Stop the Usage of Illegal White Phosphor!

Response to Extension of War Theater in Ukraine: Recourse to Lawful Procedures!

The aggressor must be denounced and held responsible in terms of criminal law.
The way out of  barbarism and war-extenision in Eastern Ukrainian must be  forwarding charges against those responsible for the atrocities! The usage of banned munition has to stop. Military action against civilian populations has to cease. A  call for legal procedures according to international law must be launched! We must take sides and stand fast with the citizen's resistance in the Ukraine.   We must never accuse  aggressor and defender of citizen's rights  alike. We also have to point out where the reasonable and potentially  healing forces come from. We have to recognize the search for peace grounded on legal procedures as expressed in the UN charter and in the  policies of Russia  today. There is a strong need to denounce the aggressor and those who back the policy of aggression. The aggressor clearly is NATO and those who support its policies. The interests driving it and have always propelled the recourse to militarism, repression and  war must be named:  capitalist greed, imperialism, the want of a profit driven society to conquer and submit the rest of the world. A wise reaction to terror always demands a long term vision. The sources of terror, those financing and supporting must be named and shamed. We must meanwhile  not despair, but work for an alternative. Such an alternative is  possible based on historical knowledge. It is such knowledge that  gives us confidence. Fascism and barbarism are no viable solution for humanity. Barbaric procedures  will only destroy what they claim to defend. They even destroy the executor in the end.
Let us keep running. They who want to govern the world  act in despair because their cause is lost. They want us to despair, too. They want to destroy our well founded hope in an alternative way to organize our  societies. Knowledge about the feasibility of  this most wanted restructuring process is the motive  that propels action towards such positive change now.  Let us therefore encourage each other and  defend citizen's and human rights everywhere. Let us remember the struggle in which our  ancestors lost their lives for. Let us continue to demand:

A more  humane order of our  societies and an end to war in the first place!
There is no need to panic now or to despair. We will succeed with patience, good will and historical knowledge.
Let us therefore demand from our elected and responsible  politicians:

  • Stop the usage of illegal white phosphor!
  • Stop supporting  EU/US/NATO war policies!
  • Use your influence on Ukrainian politicians in Kiev to stop bombing cities and innocent citizens!
  •  Self defense is  a human right! 
  • Spend money on human needs!
  • Feed the cities and  don't starve or  bomb them for demanding justice!

Incendiary Bombs Used Against Civilians in Donbass

Olga SHEDROVA | 13.06.2014 | 18:34
The prospects for crisis management in Ukraine are becoming more blur raising grave concern. European politicians under US pressure continue to put the blame on Russia for being behind the resistance to Kiev authorities. No matter that, the truth leaks out to information space. The journalists of many leading media outlets have gone to the Donetsk and Lugansk regions to see with their own eyes that there is no Russian military personnel there. The self-defense formations in the south-east are manned by local people. The government forces use artillery and aviation against civilians killing women and children. 
Those who give orders are responsible for the crimes. Speaking in parliament, Sahra Wagenknecht, deputy chairperson of the Left Party, said there are four Neo-Nazi Svoboda Party members in the ministers’ cabinet headed by Arseniy Yatsenyuk. According to Ukraine’s government sources, the war in the south-east was started by former acting President Alexander Turchinov under the pressure exerted by the head of US Central Intelligence Agency who came to Kiev exactly for this purpose. 
What has happened after Petro Poroshenko took office on June 7? Nothing! 
Many remember the President Putin’s words he said in a televised interview with the French media before going to Normandy to take part in D-Day commemorations. According to Putin, the Ukrainian President-elect had a unique chance to stop the violence in eastern Ukrainian regions as he had no blood on his hands. Since then there have been intensive discussions about the Poroshenko’s plan for peaceful crisis settlement. Many people pinned hopes on it and were expecting impassionedly to see it enter in force. Talking to Time magazine, the new President of Ukraine let know his plans include further militarization of the country and refusal to observe the Budapest Treaty which says Ukraine is to remain a nuclear-free state. Poroshenko has a dream of «punishing» Russia. 
A week has passed since his inauguration. The massive bombing of populated areas in the Slavyansk and Donetsk regions has intensified with the use of MLRS and artillery. Many thousands of refugees rushed to Russia. On June 12, Semionovka, a Slavyansk suburban town, became a target for incendiary bombs strikes. Thousands of refugees rushed to cross the Russian border. No doubt it’s nothing else but a military crime and a direct violation of the Convention on Prohibitions or Restrictions on the Use of Certain Conventional Weapons Which May Be Deemed to Be Excessively Injurious or to Have Indiscriminate Effects (Protocol III restricts incendiary weapons). 
Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin urged the international community to react to the use of prohibited ammunition in Ukraine. He spoke specifically of projectiles with white phosphorus used by the Ukrainian army. «We think that the international community should pay attention to the use by Ukraine of prohibited ammunition in combat. This happened before too, and we are very much concerned about this», he said on June 12. The draft U.N. resolution on Ukraine proposed by Russia condemns attacks on residential quarters and civilian facilities in the east of the country and voices concern over the use of prohibited ammunition, including incendiary bombs, during the army operation. The document urges all sides to refrain from actions that threaten the life and security of people and civilian infrastructure. It also calls for an immediate stop to all violence, lasting ceasefire and the implementation of the roadmap proposed by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) for the resolution of the crisis in Ukraine. The discussions on the draft continued on June 13. 
But Kiev goes on with hostile rhetoric. The statements made by Ukrainian Defense Minister are shocking. According to what he told the Verkhovna Rada (the Ukrainian parliament) in early May, Kiev had two plans to implement. One was scorched earth tactics that envisioned the use of artillery, MLRS, aircraft and helicopters to concentrate massive fire against the enemy positions. After that a flag could be raised to report the mission was accomplished. He said the leadership chose another policy – to block and then gradually exterminate the subversive elements along with preventing civilian population from being involved in combat actions. But in reality the intent to keep civilians away from combat zone is done by the implementation of the first scenario the Minister mentioned. As Slavyansk dwellers and journalists report, the city is a target for indiscriminate bombings. As a result of using incendiary munitions Semionovka has been practically razed to the ground. 
Ukrainian troops fire on the buses under white flags taking women, children and wounded away from Slavyansk. That’s what a witness reported on June 12, «Two vehicles under white flags with children were fired on by Ukrainian troops. One of them turned around. The children managed to get out and were picked up by another bus. It took nine children and their mothers to the south. It also carried away two women wounded by Ukrainian soldiers. A woman with a broken hand could not get from the vehicle hit. The territory is under control of government troops and self-defense units from Slavyansk cannot get there to help». 
Ukrainian President Poroshenko has told the world he has a crisis management plan. It’s time to ask directly – is it exactly what he had in mind talking about peaceful settlement in the country’s south-east?
In recent days the US-NATO puppet project in Kiev has been using white phosphorus bombs against their own citizens in the east of Ukraine.  The reason?  They will not submit to full corporate fascist authority.  Simple as that.....and Russia is next on the list.

I'm reading a very good book called Gladio: NATO's Dagger at the Heart of Europe, The Pentagon-Nazi-Mafia Terror Axis by Richard Cottrell.  I highly recommend it.

In the book Cottrell shares this important insight while discussing the dangerously expanding role of NATO:

A military pact ostensibly grounded on the principle of common deterrence, but turning instead to aggressive belligerence, was foreseen with astonishing clarity by the American political and social visionary James Burnham.  His seminal work The Struggle for the World appeared in 1947.   In this he glimpsed an American empire exercising 'decisive world control,' and a US-sponsored European Federation, with the Marshall Plan as the warm-up act.  The English-speaking powers and the Euro federation would eventually fuse as a Universal State, with the US occupying the central role of 'semi-barbarian, unifying power.'  For easy consumption the arrangement would be sugar-coated as 'the policy of democratic world order,' an early insight of the emerging mercantile-military globalism we recognise all around us today.  Burnham viewed this splendid project favourably.  His pulse quickened at the sound of war drums.  He imagined a planetary NATO, the prospect of 'winged soldier, air cavalry, able to raid two thousand miles behind the lines tonight and be gone before the defence arrives tomorrow.' In short, the promised land of perpetual war.

As you would expect the Russians and the Chinese are hyper-vigilant as they see the NATO war machine grind its way onto their doorstep.

Russia submitted a draft resolution on Ukraine at the Security Council Thursday demanding that the United Nations play a greater role in resolving the crisis, and accused Kiev of using white phosphorus.

Russia Today reported:

Much of the village of Semyonovka, located in the Slavyansk suburbs, was set ablaze. Local residents told RT that the ground didn't stop burning for some time.

“We all saw what happened here yesterday. They used rocket launchers as well as incendiary bombs against us. The ground was on fire. How can the ground burn by itself. It burned for about forty minutes,” resident Roman Litvinov told RT over the phone.
“Starting from 2 a.m. everyone I’ve met has a sore throat and is coughing all the time. I think this is because of the burning. I think we’ll feel the true consequences later. There are still a lot of people here, a lot of children we haven’t managed to get out yet,” resident Tatyana told RT.

Cottrell also writes in Gladio, "Such collective punishment of civilians is against all established laws of war, and expressly forbidden by the Geneva and Hague Conventions. "

Indeed Cottrell is right that US-NATO are now barbarically doing anything they can to provoke Russia to take a military step forward to defend Ukraine.  Not only is there a serious muscle pumping game going on but a global war for propaganda control is also underway.  The US-NATO are directing, and likely supplying, Kiev with this illegal and immoral toxic assault on the citizens of the east.  

When the people in the east defend themselves against this military attack they are called terrorists.  But the US-NATO are the terrorists.  Anyone who doubts that idea ought to read Cottrell's book Gladio.  It spells out the whole story - in great detail.  

We are up against the wall and the gun is pointed at us.  Hope Mr. Big has got your attention.

Russia sends 24 warships, bombers to Baltic drills as NATO stages war games

News | 13.06.2014 | 00:29
Russia has deployed 24 Baltic Fleet warships and vessels, along with heavy fighter jets and bombers, as reinforcement for military drills in the westernmost Kaliningrad region while NATO stages its own war games across the border.
On Wednesday, Moscow deployed a grouping of 24 Baltic Fleet warships and vessels for military drills in its exclave on the Baltic Sea coast. The drills were launched on Tuesday in response to NATO’s international drills – Saber Strike 2014 and BALTOPS 2014 –near Russia’s border.

"The squadrons of warships are performing the tasks of ensuring the protection of the state border of the Russian Federation, protecting marine communications, providing for shipping safety, organizing air defense, and searching for and detecting surface ships and submarines of the imaginary enemy," said Russia's Defense Ministry.

The ministry added that the newest Su-34 Fullback fighter bombers and Su-24MR reconnaissance aircraft have also taken off from their air base in Voronezh region to join the war games in Kalinigrad.

"Tu-22M3 long-range bombers are in the state of readiness to patrol the area of the exercises. An A-50 long-range airborne warning and control system aircraft is involved in the drills for reconnaissance purposes."

The presence of Russia’s military force in the war games is “equitable” with the number of NATO troops concentrated in the three nearby Baltic states – Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia – which are hosting the drills from June 9-21, the Defense Ministry noted.

The drills come amid heightened tensions between Russia and the West over the Ukrainian crisis. Troops from the US, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Norway, and the UK taking part in the war games beefed up their presence near the Russian border, accusing Moscow of having an aggressive stance in the Ukrainian conflict.

Obama’s Attempt at Intimidating Russia: Dispatching B-2 Stealth Bombers to Europe

Global Research, June 10, 2014
US President Barack Obama (R) meets his
“This deployment of strategic bombers provides an invaluable opportunity to strengthen and improve interoperability with our allies and partners.”
– Admiral Cecil Haney, commander, US Strategic Command on the deployment of B-2 stealth bombers to Europe.
“Against stupidity, no amount of planning will prevail.”
- Carl von Clausewitz
Less than 24 hours after Ukraine’s new president Petro Poroshenko announced his determination to retake Crimea from Russia, US Admiral Cecil Haney confirmed that the US Air Force had deployed two B-2 stealth bombers to Europe to conduct military exercises. The addition of the multipurpose B-2, which is capable of delivering nuclear weapons, is intended to send a message to Moscow that the United States is prepared to provide backup for Ukraine’s fledgling government and to protect its interests in Central Asia. News of the deployment was reported in the Russian media, but was excluded by all the western news outlets.
The B-2 announcement was preceded by an inflammatory speech by Poroshenko at the presidential “swearing in” ceremony in Kiev. In what some analysts have called a “declaration of war”, Poroshenko promised to wrest control of Crimea from Russia which annexed the region just months earlier following a public referendum that showed 90 percent support for the measure. Here’s part of what Poroshenko said:
“The issue of territorial integrity of Ukraine is not subject to discussion…I have just sworn ‘with all my deeds to protect the sovereignty and independence of Ukraine,’ and I will always be faithful to this sacred promise…
“Russia occupied Crimea, which was, is and will be Ukrainian soil…Yesterday, in the course of the meeting in Normandy, I told this to President Putin: Crimea is Ukraine soil. Period. There can be no compromise on the issues of Crimea, European choice and state structure…” (New York Times)
On Thursday, the day before Poroshenko was sworn in, “President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron set a deadline for Russia to comply with its demands or face harsher economic sanctions that would be imposed by members of the G-7. Once again, the threat of new sanctions was largely ignored by the western media but was reported in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz. Here’s an excerpt from the article:
“To avoid even harsher sanctions.. Putin must meet three conditions: Recognize Petro Poroshenko’s election as the new leader in Kiev; stop arms from crossing the border; and cease support for pro-Russian separatist groups concentrated in eastern Ukraine.
“If these things don’t happen, then sectoral sanctions will follow…”
Obama said the G-7 leaders unanimously agree with the steps Cameron outlined.” (Haaretz)
The United States is ratcheting up the pressure in order to widen the conflict and force Russian president Vladimir Putin to meet their demands. It’s clear that the threat of sanctions, Poroshenko’s belligerent rhetoric, and the steady buildup of military assets and troops in the region, that Obama and Co. still think they can draw Putin into the conflict and make him look like a dangerous aggressor who can’t be trusted by his EU partners. Fortunately, Putin has not fallen into the trap. He’s resisted the temptation to send in the tanks to put an end to the violence in Donetsk, Lugansk and Slavyansk. This has undermined Washington’s plan to deploy NATO to Russia’s western border, assert control over the “bridgehead” between Europe and Asia, and stop the further economic integration between Russia and the EU. So far, Putin has out-witted his adversaries at every turn, but there are still big challenges ahead, particularly the new threats from Poroshenko.
If Poroshenko is determined to take Crimea back from Moscow, then there’s going to be a war. But there are indications that he is more pragmatic than his speeches would suggest. In a private meeting with Putin at the D-Day ceremonies in France, the Ukrainian president said he had a plan to “immediately stop the bloodshed”
Here’s how Putin summarized his meeting with Poroshenko:
“Poroshenko has a plan in this respect; it is up to him to say what kind of plan it is… I cannot say for sure how these plans will be implemented, but I liked the general attitude, it seemed right to me, so, if it happens this way, there will be conditions to develop our relations, in other areas, including economy.
“It’s important to stop the punitive actions in the southeast without a delay. That’s the only way to create conditions for the start of a real process of negotiations with the supporters of federalization. No one has yet said anything concrete to the people (living in the southeast of Ukraine) and nothing practical has been offered to them. People there simply don’t understand how they’ll live in the future and what the parameters of the new Constitution will look like.” (Poroshenko tells Putin of plan to immediately stop bloodshed in Ukraine, Itar-Tass)
If the report is accurate, then there’s reason to hope that Poroshenko is moving in Russia’s direction on most of the key issues which are; greater autonomy for the people in East Ukraine, Constitutional provisions that will protect them from future abuse by Kiev, and an immediate end to the violence. Putin has sought assurances on these issues from the very beginning of the crisis. Now it looks like he might get his way. Of course, it is impossible to know, since Poroshenko is sending mixed messages.
So why is Poroshenko sounding so conciliatory in his private meetings with Putin, but so belligerent in public?
It could be any number of things, but it probably has a lot to do with Monday’s scheduled tripartite meetings of representatives from the European Union, Ukraine and Russia. These meetings will have incalculable impact of Ukriane’s economic future. They will resolve the issues of price for future gas purchases as well as a plan for settling all previous claims. (Russia says that Ukraine owes $3.5 billion in back payments for natural gas.)
On April 1, Gazprom cancelled Ukraine’s discount and raised the price of gas to 485.5 dollars per 1,000 cubic meters nearly doubling the rate of payment. (It had been $268.5 per 1,000 cubic meters) It is impossible to overstate the impact this will have Ukraine’s economy. Even Ukrainian hardline Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk was candid in his dire assessment of the situation. He said, “I could have made a populist statement but it is not true. We cannot refrain from using Russian gas.”
If Poroshenko sounds conciliatory, this is why.
Putin refused to discuss the gas issue with the media, but implied that political developments in Ukraine would factor heavily into any decision by Gazprom.
“Russia will be compelled to enact economic protection measures to defend its market if Ukraine signs the association agreement with the EU. “As soon as that accord is signed, we’ll start taking measures to defend our economy,” Putin said. (Itar-Tass)
In other words, if Ukraine doesn’t play ball, it’s going to have to go-it-alone. Kiev cannot expect “most favored trade partner-status”, gas discounts, or other perks if they’re going to stab Moscow in the back and jump into bed with the EU. That’s just not the way things work. Putin is merely warning Poroshenko to think about what he’s about to do before taking the plunge. ( “Average gas prices for Ukrainian households began rising by more than 50 percent in May, and heating prices are expected to climb by about 40 percent, starting in July.” World Socialist Web Site)
This is a much more important issue that most analysts seem to grasp. Many seem to think that IMF, EU and US loans and other assistance can buoy Ukraine’s sinking economy and restore it to health. But that’s a pipedream. In a “must read” report by the Brookings Institute, authors Clifford G. Gaddy and Barry W. Ickes spell it out in black and white, that is, that “Ukraine is a prize that neither Russia nor the West can afford to win.” Here’s a clip from the text:
“It is clear to most observers that the West would not be able to defend Ukraine economically from a hostile Russia…The simple fact is that Russia today supports the Ukrainian economy to the tune of at least $5 billion, perhaps as much as $10 billion, each year…
When we talk about subsidies, we usually think of Russia’s ability to offer Ukraine cheap gas — which it does when it wants to. But there are many more ways Russia supports Ukraine, only they are hidden. The main support comes in form of Russian orders to Ukrainian heavy manufacturing enterprises. This part of Ukrainian industry depends almost entirely on demand from Russia. They wouldn’t be able to sell to anyone else…
If the West were somehow able to wrest full control of Ukraine from Russia, could the United States, the other NATO nations, and the EU replace Russia’s role in eastern Ukraine? The IMF, of course, would never countenance supporting these dinosaurs the way the Russians have. So the support would have to come in the way of cash transfers to compensate for lost jobs. How much are we talking about? The only known parallel for the amount of transfer needed is the case of German reunification. The transfer amounted to 2 trillion euros, or $2.76 trillion, over 20 years. If Ukraine has per capita income equal to one-tenth of Germany’s, then a minimum estimate is $276 billion to buy off the east. (In fact, since the population size of eastern Ukraine is larger than East Germany’s, this is an underestimate.) It is unthinkable that the West would pay this amount.” (Ukraine: A Prize Neither Russia Nor the West Can Afford to Win, Brookings)
The authors go on to show that “a NATO-affiliated Ukraine — is simply impossible under any real-world conditions” because it assumes that Russia will either “become an enthusiastic EU and NATO member itself” (or) “will it return to being the bankrupt, dependent, and compliant Russia of the 1990s.” In other words, the Obama administration’s strategic objectives in Ukraine do not jibe with economic reality. The US cannot afford to win in Ukraine, that’s the bottom line. Even so, we are convinced the aggression will persist regardless of the presumed outcome. The train has already left the station.
At the D-Day ceremonies, Putin and Poroshenko also met briefly with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande although the content of their discussions was not revealed. Public support for the two leaders’ Ukraine policy is gradually withering as the fighting continues in the East without any end in sight. An article in the popular German newspaper Die Zeit indicates that elite opinion in Europe is gradually shifting and no longer sees Washington’s Ukraine policy as being in its interests.
Here’s a brief summary from the WSWS: “It goes on to argue that Washington’s aggression is laying the foundations for a Chinese-Russian-Iranian axis that “would force the West to pursue a more aggressive foreign policy to secure its access to important but dwindling raw materials such as oil.” In opposition to this, the commentary insists that Germany’s independent interests lie “with preserving and deepening Europe’s relations with Russia,” while pursuing similar ties with Iran.” (D-Day anniversary: Commemorating the Second World War and preparing the Third, World Socialist Web Site)
This is an important point and one that could put a swift end to US aggression in Ukraine. Washington’s objectives are at cross-purposes with those of the EU. The EU needs a reliable source of energy and one, like Russia, that will set its prices competitively without resorting to coercion or blackmail. Washington, on the other hand, intends to situate itself in this century’s most prosperous region, Eurasia, in order to control the flow of oil from East to West. This is not in Europe’s interests, but promises to be a source of conflict for the foreseeable future. Case in point: Just last week Bulgaria’s prime minister, Plamen Oresharski, “ordered a halt to work on Russia’s South Stream pipeline, on the recommendation of the EU. The decision was announced after his talks with US senators.”
According to RT News, Oresharski stopped construction after meeting with John McCain, Chris Murphy and Ron Johnson during their visit to Bulgaria on Sunday.
McCain, commenting on the situation, said that “Bulgaria should solve the South Stream problems in collaboration with European colleagues,” adding that in the current situation they would want “less Russian involvement” in the project.
“America has decided that it wants to put itself in a position where it excludes anybody it doesn’t like from countries where it thinks it might have an interest, and there is no economic rationality in this at all. Europeans are very pragmatic, they are looking for cheap energy resources – clean energy resources, and Russia can supply that. But the thing with the South Stream is that it doesn’t fit with the politics of the situation,” Ben Aris, editor of Business New Europe told RT.” (Bulgaria halts Russia’s South Stream gas pipeline project, RT)
Once again, we can see how US meddling is damaging to Europe’s interests.
Western elites want to control the flow of gas and oil from East to West. This is why they’ve installed their puppet in Kiev, threatened to levy more sanctions on Moscow, and moved B-2 stealth bombers into the European theater. They are determined to succeed in their plan even if it triggers a Third World War.

"May there be peace on earth and may it be helped through me!"

Chere Gisele, chers amis,

Oui, je suis adhérente de la Ligue Internationale des Femmes pour la Paix  et la Liberte (LIPFL/WILP - allemand). En tant qu'elle mon premier désir est la construction de la paix/Eirenae!!!  Notre organisation, digne  une fois d'un Prix Nobel (qu'il a jamais reçu comme organisation, mais trois des ses membres) est enfant de la Première Guerre Mondial. Elle a donné   les mots clés pour   la fondation  de la Société des Nations  et  L'ONU. Plusieurs parmi ces fondatrices  ont donné leurs vies pour la lutte antifasciste et anti-guerre. Il est  temps que nos soeurs contemporaines, enfants d'un nouveau siècle, comprennent que la paix d'abord et tous le reste est a suivre. Le fascisme et la guerre sont des jumeaux  éternelles. 

La guerre civile en Syrie  comme en Ukraine était importé par des forces fascistes qui ont survecu la Deuxieme Guerre Globale, malheureusement et parce que ont était pas attentive. Nous, les forces pacifistes nous avons pas compris la source de la malaise.

Ecoutant alors les voix des femmes eclairés, écoutant les  fondateurs de la Ligue, écoutant les voix des femmes comme Berta Suttner, Helene Stöcker, Minna Cauer, Anita Augspurg Lyda Gustava Heymann, Gertrud Wokker, Edith Ballantyne, écoutant des voix des femmes  comme Clara Zetkin et Rosa Luxembourg, comme Jane Adams, Emily Green Balch  des Etats Unies or  Gabrielle Duchene de la France   et milliers d'autre de tout les horizons qui ont lutté pour la paix et qui ont donné leurs vies pour laceuse la plus noble de l'humanité. Parmi ces femmes ce trouvent quelques-unes au rang du chef d'état comme Indira Ghandi.
Mais il y en a d'autre comme Hillary Clinton, Lady Ashton et Madame von der Leyen, un genre de femmes avec qui on n'aboutira  jamais à la paix du monde.

En ce qui concerne la Syrie, il faut savoir  nommé eux qui sont responsable pour la misère qui frappe femmes, enfants, hommes et des trésors culturels. Il s'agit des memes forces qui sont responsables pour la misère ailleurs. Sans les reconnaitre ont ne peux pas surmonter la misère. Il y en a pas mal des femme qui ont pris place entre ceux qui causent la misère en mode, parce ce que il en profite!
N'oubliez jamais que l'essentiel est une conscience politique fondé sur l'information propre qui est difficile à trouver.

Avec mes sentiments amicales Irène avez écrit le 11 juin 2014

Merci à Irène, adhérente à la WILPF (Allemande, je crois) de nous informer sur notre propre presse !
Voilà un article d'un chercheur sérieux et bien dans son rôle.
Une touche intellectuelle pour rendre explicable une situation syrienne et internationale sur la question syrienne, un discours où l'émotion n'entre pas, eu égard aux souffrances endurées par les Syriens.
Il y manque la suite du discours : comment le peuple de Syrie guérira-t-il de cette violence intolérable ?
Comment soigner les enfants rescapés, et les femmes épuisées et traumatisées?
Comment ce peuple pourra-t-il vraiment obtenir et construire un régime de paix qui aspire à la démocratie, et où les gens acceptent de vivre ensemble, quelle que soit l'étiquette ethnique ou religieuse dont on les marque ou les affuble, ou dont ils se marquent eux-mêmes ? acceptent de vivre en paix, dans un monde de paix ?
Cet éminent chercheur, dont la presse produit avec cet interview une belle et grande photo séduisante d'un bel homme séduisant,  analyse fort intelligemment les jeux diplomatiques et politiques de cette "Histoire", si déterminante dans la vie des gens qui vivent cette guerre. Mais, pour avoir une vue plus complète de la situation, il faut y ajouter les révélations sur les commerces des armes, licites et illicites,  et les intérêts qui sont par derrière, et comment un peuple réprimé et opprimé en arrive à se défendre par la violence, et dire à quoi aspirent les civils innocents qui rêvent encore de démocratie, de justice, de paix : manger à leur faim, boire à leur soif,  construire une vie vivable avec leurs enfants et leurs voisins, avec un toit protecteur au-dessus de la tête, sortir librement et en paix et en sécurité dans des rues accueillantes, cultiver leur terre, ou leur bibliothèque, envoyer leurs enfants à l'école....

Non, un régime basé sur la force ne peut pas et ne doit pas tenir indéfiniment.
Et la parole devrait être laissée aux femmes, pour une espérance digne.
