Selective Focus on Syria: Analysis changes once you cross the border.
There is a remarkable parallel between the violence in Iraq's Anbar province, and what has been going on in Syria. But Western reporting on the violence in Iraq is much more subdued.
Why does our media present removing the President as the solution to Syria's problems, but not Iraq's problems?
And is the Western left capable of producing a narrative of Syria independent of the corporate media? Right now, the left's nose is pointed where our owning class tells it to look. The media decides what's important, and today it's the "madman" and the "brutal dictator" in Syria. You are advised not to look behind the curtain in Iraq.
You can see a similar dynamic at work in Ethiopia and Zimbabwe.

Hemingway Lives - Why reading Ernest Hemingway matters today. The fight to protect a Chartist mural.
Clancy Sigal explains how Ernest Hemingway broke with his white, middle class origins, went away to the First World War, where he was very nearly killed, and grew into a writer whose books influenced millions, including Fidel Castro.
We also learn about the "Bonus March" - striking WWI veterans demanding their lawful bonus, and how the government's repression of these veterans influenced Hemingway's writing.
They tore down a famous Chartist mural in a fly-by-night operation. Apparently, a mall was more important. Community members who walked by that mural every day while growing up have become attached to it. Toronto lawyer David Jacobs explains their fight.

U.S. destroyed Libya and it Threatens others: Uncle Sam spreads instability and despair wherever he goes.
Mahdi Nazemroaya notes, from Somalia to Libya, the phenomenon of the U.S. leaving broken and ruined countries in its wake.
"They want chaos, they want insecurity and instability in every region that they go to. But they don't want absolute insecurity. They want a certain manageable level where these countries can meet their export obligations to the United States, while always insecure" and beset by infighting. The U.S. can then act as the arbitrator.
In the post-intervention failed states that it creates, the U.S. wants to own both sides of the table: the 'government' and the opposition.
Things have not quite gone to plan in Syria. U.S.-backed insurgents have not succeeded in pinning chemical weapons attacks on the Syrian government, despite the support of imperial organizations such as "Human Rights Watch."
