A factor in the recent victory of Donald Trump was his continual disinformation regarding issues confronting America. From the fantasy about “hordes of rapists and murderers coming across the border” to the nonsense about an unfortunate incident at Benghazi, Mr. Trump uttered one lie after another. Pope Francis warned the media about consequences of spreading lies. “I think the media have to be very clear, very transparent, and not fall into —no offense intended– the sickness of coprophilia, that is always wanting to cover scandals, convey nasty things, even if they may be false.”
Sorry, Pope Francis, in doing these things, the reward is -MONEY AND POWER

I was a child in America during World War II. I recall some short stories in the New York Times about some ‘killing of Jews’ by German soldiers. It was not until a major story was published in a newspaper named, PM, that it first entered my mind that the ‘killings’ were more widespread than I had imagined. Today, thousands have died in the Syrian city of Aleppo,and the stories appear, we read them, turn the page to sport news, and life goes on –as usual in America and most nations of the world.
World leaders like Italian Matteo Renzi, French President Hollande,and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau,issued a statement of concern. “Aleppo is being subjected to daily bombings and artillery attacks by the Syrian regime, supported by Russia and Iran. Hospitals and schools are not being spared,they appear to being targets in an attempt to wear people down.”
Death does not take a holiday in Syria.
