Something Strange About Compassion for Syria

6 Jan

A month ago I wrote a blog entitled “Is Syria Suffering from a Family Business Conflict?” Because it was a different take on what the mainstream media was reporting, I submitted it to the Huffington Post as well as posting it on my blog sites. I have been a Huff Post blogger for several years and have always found the editorial staff to be professional and reasonably fast in posting my blogs. Not this time. Without a word, my blog disappeared into the maw of the Huffington Post, never to be approved for posting. I wrote several times, wondering what the problem was. Maybe they lost it? Finally, having received no response, I decided that the content was not to the liking of the editorial staff, and they just decided not to publish it. No big deal, but it made me wonder about AOL’s editorial control of what was once a free-spirited blog site.

I talked about my analysis of the Assad family and the internal conflicts I thought it might be suffering to friends and family. My mother

Peace Advocate and International Affairs Expert Warns Against Military Intervention in Iran

24 Oct

Douglas E Noll, professor, professional mediator, international peace consultant and author of [Elusive Peace: How Modern Diplomatic Strategies Could Better Resolve World Conflicts (Prometheus 2011) offers guidance on recent concerns that elected officials are discussing using military force on Iran for an alleged assassination plot of the Saudi Ambassador to the US (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-10-16/military-force-an-option-against-iran-intelligence-chair-says.html).

“A military attack for a botched plan is the kind of retributive, vengeful thinking that is explained in my book, showing the cause and detrimental effects this type of outdated and ineffective strategy for international affairs has on US reputation and economic stability,” Noll explains.

In the book, Elusive Peace, Noll offers historic proof that using “18th century strategies in a 21st century world challenged with unprecedented civil and military conflict is outdated, dangerous, and expensive.” Noll us

Trial Lawyer turned Peacemaker and International Peace Consultant Douglas E. Noll outlines the necessary skills and specialization needed to resolve world conflicts through his book. “From years as a trial lawyer, I began to realize there was a better way to resolve conflict. Becoming a professional mediator and studying the dynamics of mediating emotionally charged individuals and groups led me to realize that U.S. peace negotiations fail because peace strategies are outdated. Writing Elusive Peace was a way to help de-mystify the process of negotiating peace, and teach basic human interaction dynamics that lead to stalemates and ongoing conflicts,” Noll explains.
