Tumultuous Times…Hum…Is Freedom of Speech a myth?
If I may I would like to espouse on a couple of matters that involve Syria, the Assad regime – in particular, what is happening in the skies above Eastern Syria involving Iran, ISIS, Russia, Syria, and the USA. Otherwise, time permitting and space I would like to say something at how ridiculous matters surrounding our first amendment right of free speech are being sought and for what?
First, however, are the issues that occurred in Eastern Syria this past weekend. Breaking this matter down into more coherent episodic events the conflicting Middle East, Russian backed participants, as well as the retaliatory measures taken by Iran in which are due to the bombing and subsequent deaths of twenty or so individuals with ISIS taking all the credit. Yet, fearful of the USA losing men, women, including pilots is of great concern when our pilots engage enemy opposition.
A U.S. Navy fighter jet shot down a Syrian government warplane after it attacked Washington-backed fighters near ISIS’ de facto capital of Raqqa, the U.S.-led coalition said Sunday.
In a statement, the coalition headquarters in Iraq said that a F/A-18E Super Hornet shot down a Syrian Su-22 that had dropped bombs near positions held by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
There is not any real semblance of who is doing what to whom. U.S. forces tangled earlier this month with Syria-allied aircraft in the region. On June 8, U.S. officials reported that a drone likely connected to Iranian-supported Hezbollah forces fired on U.S.-backed troops and was shot down by an American fighter jet.
In all frankness is seems as though the fighting coalitions are, USA and Syrian Rebels fighting ISIS, while one cannot ignore the coalition of Russian and the Assad Syrian government regime allegedly fighting ISIS, and it is a new concern (at least for me!) that Iran and Hezbollah are going after ISIS as well as the USA and Syrian rebels. There really doesn’t seem to be much difference then say the Vietnam experience with the Soviet Union, China, and North Korea aiding North Vietnam along with the Viet Cong, with the USA taking over from the French after colluding to have Diem’s government ousted.
Ngô Đình Diệm, the president of South Vietnam, marked the culmination of a successful CIA-backed coup d’état led by General Dương Văn Minh in November 1963. On 2 November 1963, Diệm and his adviser, his younger brother Ngô Đình Nhu, were arrested after the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) had been successful in a bloody overnight siege on Gia Long Palace in Saigon. This does look strangely familiar, commonly referred to as “proxy wars.”
I do believe that we are seeing and/or experiencing the politically correct death of free speech in this country. Most would believe that the right to freely speak or express oneself is being gone after. However, as I heard today by several “experts” the notion has to do with the intent of what is being said.
Interestingly the two most common words being used were the attempt to “incite” and “provoke” people into situations that they normally would not be involved in. So, in a nutshell finale here, the argument was centered around whether or not a person was provoking an incident but not meaning to play a part which would be held as legal speech or if a person was seen as being incendiary with a part in the action; therefore, the person would be held legally responsible.
So then one of the experts says to a panel, “what about the guy who without intent of using the device, boards a plane carrying a bomb?”
