However, the conflict in Syria isn’t the entire war, it is merely one theatre in a much wider-spread fight against the Turkish-Saudi-Israeli-Zionist-Neocon criminal cabal (we need to come up with a name for this bunch that’s easier to type!). The conflicts in Ukraine, Nagorno-Karabakh, Yemen, Libya and various places across Africa are all theatres of this war. Think of it like a game of ‘Whack-a-Mole ‘ where as soon as one is dealt with, another rears it’s head somewhere else.
US Secretary of State Kerry: Shooting down Russian jets 'would have been justified' ~ link ~ These nutty evil globalists/Zionists just can't wait to jump start World War III. What a jerk! At the most, the USS Donald Cook could have fired a star shell nearby as a warning, but to actually shot down two Russian warplanes for flying too close to one of our warships ... NUTS!!! Stirling
The US military would have been within its rights to shoot down Russian aircraft that flew close to one of its warships in the Baltic Sea, Secretary of State John Kerry says.
Renewed Ukraine Coup Junta's shelling in Donbass ~ link ~
Greek Armed Forces on Combat Alert in Response to Provocations from Turkey ~ link ~ I doubt that much will come from this but the Turks are getting into everyone's face lately, and there is no love lost between these two ancient enemies! Stirling
This attitude has very deep historical roots. The Ottoman Turks ruled over Greece for almost four centuries and the Greeks only won their independence as recently as 1829. Since then, the two countries have fought several wars, most notably from 1919 to 1922 which was a particularly cruel and brutal conflict that saw large scale abuses of human rights including ethnic cleansing and genocide.
Entire remaining 2016 candidate field descends on New York ~ link ~ Lucky New York. Stirling
Front-runners Clinton and Trump hope New York's April 19 primaries can propel them past stubborn challengers and into the general election. Preference polls show Clinton and Trump leading their respective contests.
Sanders, a Vermont senator who was born in Brooklyn, has been touting his local roots as he seeks to upset Clinton in New York. While he is on a winning streak in primaries and caucuses, he needs a big victory in the state to cut into Clinton's delegate lead and slow her march to the nomination.
Kerry attacks Trump in speech ~ link ~ Maybe Kerry wants on the Democratic ticket as Vice-President (or President if things get out-of-control). Stirling

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump late Wednesday highlighted a "big protest march" in Colorado on Friday after he was shut out of delegates in the state.
Trump fired off several tweets, claiming that "over one million people have been precluded from voting" and that party rules were designed to hurt his campaign.
Sanders had large crowd last night in NYC ~ link ~ Bernie's big problem is that he is a socialist and neo-communist and that is NOT good for America!!! Stirling
Bernie Sanders had a massive crowd tonight in New York City. The campaign for the 74-year-old socialist from Vermont claims 27,000 came out tonight for the event.
"Thank you to the more than 27,000 New Yorkers who came out tonight to join our political revolution. Unbelievable," Sanders wrote on Twitter.

MSM: Why is it covering up Recessionary Data? ~ link ~
The retail sales figures have been propped up by the issuance of subprime auto loans to deadbeats, 7 year 0% interest loans to good credit customers, and an all-time high in leases (aka 3 year rentals). Despite this Fed induced auto loan scheme, retail sales have still been pitiful, as the average American has been left with stagnant wages, 0% interest on their minuscule savings, surging rent and home prices, and drastic increases in their healthcare costs due to Obamacare.
The retail sales for March, reported this morning, were disastrous and further confirmed a myriad of other economic indicators that the country is in recession. GDP for the first quarter will be negative. And this time they can’t blame it on snow in the winter. They have already doubly seasonally adjusted the figures, and they will still be negative. Retail sales in the first quarter were atrocious. It might make a critical thinking person question the establishment storyline of solid job growth being peddled by politicians and their MSM mouthpieces. If people had good paying jobs, they would be spending money.
