Michael Moore has a new movie coming out this week, "Where To Invade Next".  That news is overshadowed by his health problems.
Moore got severely ill with pneumonia and clearly feared worst. Now he's trying to save his best film in years

The sheet of paper taped to the door of Keith Emery's office tells the story. On the paper is a simple fever chart showing the improvements made in increasing the efficiency of two dozen types of solar cells. Some of the lines marking record efficiencies date to the mid-1970s. Others start much more recently, with the advent of newer technologies.

As much as I like Bernie Sanders, he's clearly not understanding the complicated multidimensional mess going on in the Middle East.  His suggestion - get Muslim Troops on the ground to fight it out - will simply not fly.  Syria will see it as an invasion, and their partner (Russia) will back them.  That would put increase the risk of U.S. and Russia troops shooting at each other.

One dimension of the Middle East conflict is a coalition of Russia/Syria/Iraq/Iran against Saudi/Qatar/US/EU/Turkey ...
Syria will see any incursion on its territory as an act of aggression, Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem said on Saturday, days after Saudi Arabia announced it was ready to send in ground troops.

+David Herron There already is a no fly zone over Syria set up by the Russian's. Notice that the Russian's allowed the IDF fly in and assassinate a mass murdering Hezbollah leader (who ruthlessly killed several Israeli's). Russia wouldn't be so kind to military jets flying over Syria from other nations.

The UN decision on Julian Assange doesn't do much to change practical considerations of his context.  There's still an arrest warrant, etc, against him.
With a UN panel expected to conclude that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been "arbitrarily detained", what does it mean for him and how did it come about?
