RAMIN MAZAHERI—I expected online commenters to object to my treatment of Aoun in my previous two articles. I did not expect anyone to publicly stand up for Samir Geagea – no one did. His supporters are the types who leave anonymous, racist, ill-informed comments. Bombing churches, assassinations of Christian leaders, fighting alongside Israeli Defense Forces – his crimes were the most atrocious of his era, and he was the only warlord to serve jail time for that reason. And yet he was released. (This is obviously in contrast to the ‘Arab Nelson Mandela’.)

PATRICK MARTIN—There are no such issues of democratic rights in the conflict between Trump and the Democrats, who are acting as the political front men for the CIA and other sections of the national security apparatus. The significance of Sondland’s testimony lies not in what he revealed about Trump, but in his account of the everyday relationship between American imperialism and Ukraine, a small, dependent nation that has been turned into a vassal state by successive administrations in Washington.

ROB URIE—This is to suggest that it certainly makes sense that the Russian political leadership would want to keep American militarists, a/k/a the Clintons and their neocon ‘crazies,’ out of White House. But as of now, the evidence is that the Russians changed no votes in the 2016 election. As far as inciting dissent— the charge that protests were organized by Russian ‘interests,’ not only does this reek of prior misdirection by the FBI and CIA, but there is no evidence that any such protests had an impact on the outcome of the 2016 election.

GRACIELA RAMIREZ—Massacring the population is legal in Chile if the President in turn considers it necessary. A massacre, this is what soldiers in uniform and also civilians are doing, shooting at their own people; a massacre by fiercely beating and detaining citizens unjustifiably, without distinguishing if they are under age; “Chile is governed by the civilians of the military dictatorship, those who were never prosecuted because they were protected by Pinochet’s Constitution,” Mrs. Lagos said.

BILL VAN AUKEN—It is also noteworthy that the first two speakers in the UN General Assembly debate, which was preceded by a UN Climate Summit dominated by warnings of approaching global catastrophe, were Trump and Bolsonaro. Both are climate change deniers who are actively repressing research by the scientific agencies of their respective governments. Bolsonaro’s foreign minister has dismissed climate change as a hoax by “cultural Marxists” bent on undermining Western capitalism. In this area too, the UN is incapable of confronting the existential threats facing humanity.
