Joint Declaration (by 7 countries) on the Recent Military Actions of the Russian Federation in Syria


Joint Declaration on the Recent Military Actions of the Russian Federation in Syria

Media Note
Office of the Spokesperson
Washington, DC
October 2, 2015

We, the Governments of France, Germany, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, United Kingdom and United States of America state the following in view of the recent military actions of the Russian Federation in Syria:

Begin Text:

We express our deep concern with regard to the Russian military build-up in Syria and especially ‎the attacks by the Russian Air Force on Hama, Homs and Idlib which led to civilian casualties and did not target Da'esh. These military actions constitute a further escalation and will only fuel more extremism and radicalization. We call on the Russian Federation to immediately cease its attacks on the Syrian opposition and civilians and to focus its efforts on fighting ISIL.

Should admins boot the gungeon and refuse to host any pro-gun groups/forums on DU?

Curious to think how DUers feel about this.

Over/under on jury vote to hide this post? I'm going with 5 votes to hide


even though there is nothing hide-worthy. I just want folks to acknowledge their hypocrisy on BLM.

Bad when DU African American supporters defend BLM and say economic justice does not pre-empt social justice. Good when Elizabeth Warren says it.

McCarthy will replace Boehner, with all Tea Party folks in other leadership roles.

McCarthy is more like Boehner than a Tea Partier. But it is being set up so that the leadership after him is all Tea Party.

McCarthy thinks he has come to some arrangement with the "Freedom caucus". What he doesn't realize is, the arrangement involves coaching several of them until they are ready to unseat him.

Ladies semifinal results (SPOILER ALERT)

OMG Serena lost, I can't believe it.

Irony Alert: I got an alert & hide in the Hillary Clinton group for talking about the alert stalking


LOLOLOL, Alerter and the folks who voted to hide just made my point for me.

I was wondering, how many folks have been alert stalked and silenced for being critical of Bernie?

Of the top of my head (updated list):

cosmicone - Due Back Oct 16
bravenak - Due Back Oct 23
KMOD - Due Back Oct 19
seabeyond - Due Back Nov 25
MaggieD - Due Back Nov 17
VanillaRhapsody - Due Back Nov 1
Heaven05 - Due Back Oct 26
Giftedgirl77 - Due Back Oct 30
LiberalStalwart71 - Due Back Oct 11
Sonderwoman - Due Back Nov 27

but I know there is a lot more than that... and that doesn't include folks that were on suspension and are back and of course it doesnt include a crap-ton of us, including me, that have had a smattering of unjustified hides but never enough to put us on a forced vacation.

Edited to add, folks who were on a forced timeout for being critical of Bernie but are back:

boston bean
upaloopa (suspension was over Sept 1 and then Sept 8)
Janeyvee (suspension was over Sept 18)
ronnykmarshal (suspension was over Sept 25)
1StrongBlackMan (suspension was over Sept 29)
hrmjustin (suspension was over Sept 30)
