If ever there was a week when every member of the Executive Branch needed to be able to talk with their Russian counterparts, this is that week. Shame on TAI and Orlova for prioritizing this partisan distraction* at the expense of the accelerating tragedy of the Syrian civil war. You, and this peevish lazy Congress are responsible for crimes against humanity, like this one on Jan. 31, 2018:
36°30′N 36°51′E ‘TuAF carried out air raid against YPG in the city center of Afrin today’
Jan. 25, 2018: City of Geneva statement : “[…] In the face of these violations of the Geneva Conventions, the City of Geneva calls
for an immediate halt to the Turkish army’s offensive in the Erfîn canton and in northeastern Syria.
The City of Geneva also recalls that respect for the principles of the Geneva Conventions is a priority for the international
community and all parties to the Conventions, includingTurkey. They are required to protect the lives of civilians,
to ensure the free organization of the areas to treat the wounded and to ensurethe free passage of humanitarian aid.”
Jan. 28, 2018: On visit to Jordan’s Za’atari refugee camp, UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie urges international community to find
“principled end to this senseless war.”
Jan. 29, 2018: All fifteen ambassadors to UNSC, including Russia, official luncheon, White House State Dining Room: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/701b7ebe8584de8fb887d827e1f1114f9fb09a8996f7bbf1ecc182f8f8e24e0d.jpg followed by view of exhibit “Syria: Please Don’t Forget Us.” at US Holocaust Memorial Museum https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/13fabf8d6d317ecd2df30a902636de5be8214b82f669abcbaa9500f441990476.jpg
Jan 30, 2018: “Relentless fighting in Syria continues to exact terrible toll on civilians”, says UN deputy aid chief Ursula Mueller, Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator in the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, addresses the Security Council . http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=58509#.WnHIJbly6EZ
TAI’s partisan distraction* https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/3364 HR 3364 Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), was passed in haste, without debate, combining previous laws on Iran, North Korea, and Russia, with new dictates on Russia. Combining the three nations in one law was incompetent and irresponsible. Passing it without debate was a deplorable dereliction of the Constitutional obligations of every member of Congress who voted Yea. Yes, I read all of it on Aug. 2, 2017.
postscript: I could add so much more, but I would have to mention Russia, and be sanctioned by an Act of Know Nothing Congress.
