Gabbard Says She'd Drop All Charges Against Heroes Assange And Snowden

Authored by Caitlin Johnstone: In the midst of an interesting and wide-ranging discussion on the Joe Rogan Experience, Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard said that if elected president she would drop all charges against NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
Rogan noted that Sweden’s preliminary investigation of rape allegations has just been re-opened, saying the US government can’t stop that, and Gabbard said as president she’d drop the US charges leveled against Assange by the Trump administration.

Turkey Flexes In "Largest Ever" East-Med Naval Drills Amid Oil & Gas Grab Near Greek Cyprus

By Tyler Durden: Turkey kicked off its "largest ever" military drills conducted in the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas on Monday. Though the drills are pre-scheduled "annual" exercises, the massively beefed up Turkish naval presence comes as Cyprus is pressing the EU to address illegal Turkish oil and gas drilling inside Cyprus' exclusive economic zone.
Turkish state-run TRT World described the exercise known as "Sea Wolf 2019" as including a total of 131 warships, 57 warplanes and 33 helicopters — the largest force deployment in the exercise's history.
The games will extend to the Black Sea as well, and is set to run through May 25; it will further involve "submarines, frigates, naval artilleries, armed UAVs, as well as search and rescue units" engaging in “strategic and operational exercises with scenarios similar to crisis-tension situations and wartime,” according to Turkish sources.
The west supported Greek Cypriot government and Turkey - the latter which occupies northern Cyprus - have overlapping claims of jurisdiction for offshore oil and gas research in the natural gas-rich eastern Mediterranean.

The Anti War Movement, SDS, The Weather Underground And The Jews.

By Eve Mykytyn: In the 1960s, the United States had an authentic broad based peace movement that sprang from opposition to the War in Vietnam. Motives varied; fear of the draft, revulsion for the US strategy that was based on increasing enemy deaths, and general youthful rebellion probably all played a part. Yet by 1970, years before the end of the war, the anti war movement was in disarray. This paper addresses some of the reasons the movement was never able to capitalize on its support or to form a broad based Left anti war party. In fact, some remnants of the rancorous movement can be seen now in the US’ deeply divided politics.
