« The two greatest obstacles to democracy in the United States are, first, the widespread delusion among the poor that we have a democracy, and second, the chronic terror among the rich, lest we get it. » – –  Edward Dowling
« The key to the behaviour of subjects [willing to torture and kill on command] lies not in pent-up anger or aggression but in the nature of their relationship to authority. They have given themselves to the authority; they see themselves as instruments for the execution of his wishes; once so defined, they are unable to break free. » (Milgram, op., cit, p.185) « These are the men who, without virtue, labour, or hazard, are growing rich, as their country is impoverished; they rejoice, when obstinacy or ambition adds another year to slaughter and devastation; and laugh, from their desks, at bravery and science, while they are adding figure to figure, and cipher to cipher, hoping for a new contract from a new armament, and computing the profits of a siege or tempest. » – Samuel Johnson

Syrian War Report – January 6, 2017: ISIS Suffers Major Casualties Across Syria;
120 ISIS members have been killed and 10 units of military hardware destroyed, by the Syrian army in the recent clashes near the Tyas Airbase west of Palmyra, according to pro-government sources.
Turkish Forces Kill Over 30 Daesh Terrorists in Northern Syria;
Turkish forces also hit 21 Daesh targets in al-Bab, the Yeni Safak newspaper reported on Thursday, citing the Turkish military.
Turkish-backed forces fighting street battles in Syria’s al-Bab – defence minister;
The rebels, backed by Turkish special forces, tanks and war planes, have been besieging the Islamic State-held city of al-Bab for weeks as part of an operation to drive the jihadists out of a strip of Syrian territory along the Turkish border.
Turks Turn Down U.S. Military Help in Syria, Accept Russian Aid Instead:
The Turks are fighting to expel ISIS from al Bab and they are in the midst of an extremely tough fight and they are taking casualties.
Russia pleased with deepening US-Turkey rift over Syria :
« Relations on the ground are not warm. Diplomatic developments occur nonstop. Unpredictability, ambiguity and a serious crisis of confidence dominate. It is certainly the worst crisis between the United States and Turkey since 2003. »
Ankara hopes Trump will revive relations:
Despite the high-level dialogue between Turkey and the United States the facts on the ground show that there is little reason for Ankara to trust the goodwill of Washington.
Russia says it has begun reducing its military forces in Syria:
The head of the Russian General Staff, Valery Gerasimov, said that had begun on Friday with the Russian naval fleet led by the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier beginning its withdrawal from the east Mediterranean.
Hezbollah blocked Russian monitors from Wadi Barada area near Damascus, Syria:
The Russian delegation arrived in the area after being « invited » by local residents, and Hezbollah stopped them when they arrived.
