Trump, WikiLeaks and Russia

GWYNNE DYER writes:

The Berlin Provocation

GWYNNE DYER writes:

Twelve people were killed in a Christmas market in Berlin on Monday, mown down by a terrorist in a big truck. Elsewhere in Germany, if it was an average day, another ten people were killed in or by motor vehicles. They are all equally dead; the only difference is the motivation of the man in the truck.

As the area of the city under rebel control dwindled – by Wednesday morning the Syrian regime’s troops had recaptured three-quarters of it – did you see massive columns of fleeing civilians, or mounds of civilian dead?

GWYNNE DYER writes:

Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Donald J. Trump’s record is not good, but he does get it right once in a while. He got it right on Tuesday, when he said that Hillary Clinton would be dangerously aggressive in Syria if she wins the presidency.
