(Just in case anyone is labouring under the delusion that law and order, and real human rights apply, you are on notice. At least in the UK, they do not)
Glasgow Police have threatened social media users, ordering them to be “kind” and not “hurtful” unless they want to “receive a visit… this weekend”.
(Really, click over to the BB link and read it. Its horrifying. One of the criteria they can use to ‘visit’ you, is whether or not your post was “necessary”. That is all about the arbiter.)

The Los Angeles Times reports that the Kurdish-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which is supported by the Pentagon, has been clashing with the CIA-backed Arab Fursan al-Haq militia near Aleppo.
“Any faction that attacks us, regardless from where it gets its support, we will fight it,” said one of Fursan al-Haq’s leaders.
SDF and Fursan al-Haq are only two of the dozens of groups that are fighting against dictator Bashar al-Assad and ISIS, yet cannot come to power-sharing arrangements among themselves.
4. Is Putin bringing in more firepower to Syria?
(Much doesn’t make sense about this clip. The American Colonel’s strategy for instance, Killing the ISIS leader just promotes someone else)
