  • When the statue of the Abu Alaa Al Maarrie and that of “assad allat” was destroyed and turned into a pile of stones …. When ‪#‎Bursa‬ and ‪#‎Palmyra‬ were lost, they were not a loss to ‪#‎Syrians‬ only but the whole world lost them.. The light of civilization that lived in ‪#‎Syria‬ was a real threat to those hateful groups that insist on eliminating the enlightenment and civilization thousands of years old ..
I don’t like to stuff my articles with boring information, but I’ll just give you a hint about the catastrophe that befell the Antiquities and Museums starting with the Umayyad mosque in ‪#‎Aleppo‬ , to at Em Al Zenar church , the Old and New city in ‪#‎Homs‬ and I don’t have the right words to describe Busra and its great amphitheater , ‪#‎Ebla‬ in ‪#‎Idleb‬ and the list is too long to continue.... 90% of the militant factions that are fighting in Syria are radical religious groups .. these same groups are participating in Geneva and other conferences demanding of the right to rule in Syria.. how would they be merciful to people if they are not being merciful to stones …
Of course everything becomes clear and understandable when we remember that turkey had the best share in looting the Syrians ..a lot of Syrian Antiquities and Museums were stolen and exported to turkey to be sold there and it has became impossible to track them .. and the destruction in some of the Syrian areas is way much worse that ‪#‎Dresden‬ which was totally destroyed in ‪#‎WWII‬..
No one ever imagined that Khaled Al Asa’ad the General Director of Antiquities and Museums in Palmyra for whom Italy closed its museums and mourned , was such a threat to ‪#‎ISIS‬ and those supporting it ..
I wonder what would those monsters do if they reached old city of ‪#‎Damascus‬?
I wonder what would those monsters do if they reached Ugarite or Amrite?
Syria was moving with steady steps towards secularism.. toward a future were everyone has the right to think and believe differently .. towards a place we all share in our homeland in regardless of our believes… Alas that there will be a time when we wake up too late and our children ask us about what was once a country and the only answer we have is “ once upon a time…”

There is a great importance to the presence of the international media in the Syria, to witness what is "really" happening on the ground!

Scientific Consensus is that Consensus is overturned 100% of the time

Everything you know is wrong. There is a very good reason why science succeeds more often than politics does.  Unlike politics, It's not a consensus or a vote,  it's actually method.  The scientific method. Anyone who has read this blog before probably knows I'm a lifelong science junkie as well as someone who spends thousands of hours breaking down the the political and economic agendas behind the special interest groups that guide public policy.  In many ways I'm actually uniquely qualified to tie these angles together in ways not well understood by the overwhelming majority of people.  That actually includes scientists. Scientists are notoriously naive in the political and economic forces that drive the human world.

First and foremost,  what is this so called 'consensus' anyway.  You will be horrified to find out,  it's not specifically that global warming is man made.  It's simply that humans contribute to climate change in an unknowable way and to…

CO2 is not a pollutant, it is greening the earth!

Whatever your persuasion is on CO² and AGW, nobody disagrees on the tremendous benefit it provides plant life. Many of the past famine disasters and desertification has CO² decline listed as a contributor.

I feel I've already blown the notion that humans are the main cause of climate change out of the water. Or rather I've used the reasoning of others and put it together in a convenient outline. See my previous post above for starters.  However, I recognize that humans do increase CO² levels, no matter how tiny. Increases are likely to be very short lived because the earth has an effective feedback mechanism, but we can apparently get small increases, and it's been put forward on very poor science that this is a bad thing. That assertion hinges completely on bad models. More on that in the bottom most link.  Model's and the measurement sample dates are dubious at best.

Furthermore, the main increase in CO²  as…

You Don't Know What Capitalism Is So Stop Using The Word!

I am writing this for one purpose, to be able to post it every time the issue comes up in conversation to prevent myself from dying of boredom on a few key issues with label intellectuals, you know, the sort who drop labels for the singular purpose of demonstrating their talent at dodging real issues by posing as someone who knows the definition of a word.

When it comes right down to it, I personally think most economic and, for that matter, socio-economic systems across the entire capitalism/ socialism spectrum could work if corruption could just be reasonably controlled.  Many forget that Socialism still runs on the capitalism economics system and the finer points actually come down to policy and regulations. This is often missed.  That being said, I am fairly sure that many of the criticisms of communism for example are valid, and views that it does not work especially well because it tends to kill the inventiveness and passion of the human spirit do stand, but not for the reasons…
