Hoover Institution fellow Abbas Milani discusses the recent Syrian chemical attacks and whether these attacks will lead to an escalation in tensions between Iran and Israel, and if so what does that mean for the US and the rest of the world?
Cuba finally has a new president with a new name, Miguel Diaz-Canel. But, assert The Daily Beast’s Christopher Dickey and Ingrid Arnesen, “the notion that a new face in Havana means a new Cuba” is “sadly mistaken.”
At this stage it seems reasonable to wonder whether Syria was attacked because it didn’t use chemical weapons rather than because it did. That may seem strange until we remember rather weighty suspicions surrounding the main accusers, especially the White Helmets with their long standing links to the U.S. Government, and past skepticism about their inflammatory accusations that critics claim reflect fabricated evidence conveniently available at crisis moments.
