Seymour M. Hersh Erdoğan and the Syrian rebels The full extent of US co-operation with Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar in assisting the rebel opposition in Syria has yet to come to light. The Obama administration has never publicly admitted to its role in creating what the CIA calls a ‘rat line’, a back channel highway into Syria. The rat line, authorised in early 2012, was used to funnel weapons and ammunition from Libya via southern Turkey and across the Syrian border to the opposition.

Modern Art Movement Timeline This French painting movement began when avant-garde artists including Cézanne, Renoir, and Manet scandalized the art world after being refused admission to the official art salon. Turning away from the stress on clarity of form and realistic rendering, the French Impressionists had an interest in how visual perception was based in fleeting optical impressions. They sought new ways to capture light and movement, atmosphere, and weather. They loosened their brushwork and lightened their palettes to include pure, intense colors – especially in their landscapes. Drawn to modern life, they also painted the mid-nineteenth century changes in Paris – capturing alienation amid public spaces such as railway stations, boulevards, cafes, and cabarets. movement-impressionism.htm

[FR] “Rusting America you reunite” : The Left, and Thirties Limits on Aesthetic Coalition / Michael Rozendal - chapitre dans un livre 1 Marvin Klein, “Sonnet to Disintegration,” The Left : A Quarterly Review of Radical & Experimental (...) 2 For a concentrated example of this in Language Poetry, see the 1986 collection The Politics of Poe (...) 1Surrounded by economic despair but refusing fallow resignation, the early thirties were a cultural period of realignment and reevaluation that attempted a cultural synthesis between political and aesthetic radicalism. In the vibrant material culture of the period, we find little journals like The Left : A Quarterly Review of Radical and Experimental Art working to fuse a broad coalition of modernists and realists, cosmopolitan and regional voices, nationalists and internationalists. In this ambitious project, we can see the outlines of an important chapter in American modernism, a crux which remains provocative if incomplete, ultimately failing to produce either an enduring coalition or a revitalized avant-garde movement. 3 “Left !” 4 Emphasis added.
