AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce I saw a film, #Crescendo, that made a lot of sense. It was the formation of anOrchestra, consisting of equal numbers of Israeli & Palestinian musicians who join together, learn to talk to each other, see each and make beautiful music together. The Palestinians can do the same today. Reframe their dialogue with Israelis & seek a meaningful peace and prosperity for the Palestinian people. Brett Stephens has a point.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The true story behind, Syrian & Russian bombings of hospital & a child care center in Syria, during April and May of last year. How are Assad or Russia different from other despots who do not consider the maiming & killing of innocent children & civilians as Murderous acts?

#AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce #Kurds, civilians & hospitals are attacked by Turkish forces moving in to the area. Ceasefire has been breached. There is a humanitarian crisis for the Kurds & Russia does not appear to be protecting them. Where is an International peacekeeping buffer force?

#AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Turks may have used “white Phosphorus “ to burn innocent Kurdish women & children. This chemical has been used by Syrian forces, too! Have dictators stopped to a new low level of barbarism?

#AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce #Interested in what’s happening to the Syrian Kurds, they’re aligned with Syrian Forces, to secure their safety, over 250,000 have been displaced. The Kurds eliminated ISIS & had obtained autonomy, which is now gone. Win for Turkey.

#AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce #For Trump, all Foreign Policy is personal. Whether it’s “dirt” on competitors or ceding America’s Role in Global affaires, Trump benefits. Especially, if Putin comes out winning.

#AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce #Turkey already allowed 3000 Isis fighters & families into their country. Why are we allowing the slaughter of our Kurdish allies? Under Trump only despots & his inner circle win
