U.S. freezes funding for Syria’s “White Helmets”

President Trump put a freeze on the $200 million in U.S. funding for recovery efforts in Syria in late March. This freeze means that U.S. support for the White Helmets is not the only project in jeopardy. There are also many other stabilization efforts that are backed by the U.S. — including the clearing of explosive devices, bringing back electricity, rebuilding schools, and getting water running — that may end soon.

I’d love to hear an unbiased account of the effects of this freeze. Not sure if that’s even possible at this point.


This event was chilling to me as a kid, and as I think about it today, it’s still chilling….and with authoritarianism on the rise, it could happen again. This song is a reminder of it.

May the 4th be with us to defeat or at least beat back the MIC.


I was about 12 years old when this happened and wondered why the US was shooting its own citizens over a protest about the escalation of the war in Vietnam (Cambodia). Yes Benny I expect it to happen again its scary that some millennial’s still claim that the US would not shoot its own citizens.
