Here's Why Republicans Really Want a No-Fly Zone in Syria

Robert Naiman | Posted 10.21.2015 | World
Robert Naiman

"No fly zone" = "make a stand against the Russians and Iranians." But presumably, "Let's have a war with Russia and Iran" didn't test well in Republicans' focus groups. "No fly zone" is a marketing euphemism for "war."

Senators who voted last week to Fast Track ratification of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) call it a free trade deal, but really, it’s forced trade imposed on protesting American workers who have endured its damaging effects for decades.

Lauren Windsor

Seen by many in the Occupy movement as its patron saint, Elizabeth Warren has firmly established herself as the populist crusader against Wall Street in Washington.
