Syria ‘still holds chemical weapons’ – OPCW head Kaag

WEB Notes: Syria still holds chemical weapons because the U.N. has not finished the job they signed up to do. This in no way shape or form can be pinned on Syria. Yet we see headlines like this and this one from Fox News: Watchdog says Syria must destroy toxic chemicals. Syria was forced at the barrel of a gun ship to remove their chemical weapons or be invaded. If they must be disarmed then so should the rest of the nations. It is obvious the goal is to remove the leadership in Syria from power, Isaiah 17:1 will be fulfilled. As a side note, the fighting in Syria still rages on as 88 people from both sides of the fight have been killed.

(Source: BBC) The head of the task force in charge of eliminating Syria’s chemical weapons says Damascus still holds about 7.5% of its 1,300-tonne stockpile at one site.

Envoy Sigrid Kaag was speaking as Syria appeared to miss a Sunday deadline to remove its arsenal from the country.

All Syria’s chemical weapons are scheduled to be destroyed by 30 June.

Police Mag: Fourth Amendment is a “Hassle”

WEB Notes: People are not prey and the police are not hunters. What kind of analogy is this? Then to say the fourth amendment is a hassle? Are they forgetting about their family members who are not law enforcement or forgetting that they will not always be a part of law enforcement?

(Source: Black Listed News) – You have to reign in your natural hunter’s instinct and take the time to get a search warrant. There’s the affidavit of probable cause to compose, the warrant form to fill out, maybe a review by the local prosecutor, and then finding a magistrate to submit the package to for approval. It’s a hassle.

A World on the Verge of World War III

A World of the Verge of World War III

By: Brandon T. Ward

Globally, we are witnessing tensions rise rapidly. From China and Japan, to the situation in Ukraine which has pulled in the United States, Russia and NATO. Instead of a de-escalation of the events in Ukraine, we are witnessing an escalation of them.

A few days ago we posted an article titled, “NATO Moving Troops in Escalation of Ukrainian Crisis” where the Secretary General of NATO stated in order to de-escalate the events in Ukraine they will send in more troops, aircraft and navel assets.

It should be obvious to everyone you do not de-escalate a situation by bringing in more firepower.

Putin Halts All Talks With White House

WEB Notes: This story is also being reported by Politico.

(Source: Daily Beast) – As new U.S. sanctions against Russia loom, the Kremlin has shut down—at least for now—intensive high level communications between top U.S. and Russian officials.

Since the invasion of Crimea, President Vladimir Putin and President Barack Obama have had regular phone calls in an often half-hearted attempt to deescalate the ongoing crisis inside Ukraine. But as the U.S. and EU prepare to unveil new sanctions against Russia, Putin has decided the interactions should stop. The Kremlin has ended high-level contact with the Obama administration, according to diplomatic officials and sources close to the Russian leadership. The move signals an end to the diplomacy, for now.
