USMC Veteran Facing Life in Prison Over 1 Oz. of Cannabis to Treat His PTSD

USMC Veteran Facing Life in Prison Over 1 Oz. of Cannabis to Treat His PTSD:

Geronimo, OK — After serving three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, Kristoffer Lewandowski was medically and honorably discharged from the Marine Corps. After fighting the State’s wars for them, however, the State has taken it upon themselves to wage a personal war against him — for naturally treating an illness — he acquired fighting for them.

Lewandowski is now a 100% disabled veteran because of the severity of his PTSD. Since he has gotten out, the VA had him taking up to 18 pills a day to treat his PTSD. This pharmaceutical treatment was literally killing him.

At 180 Percocet per month, for ten consecutive months, along with a prescription for OxyContin, Lewandowski’s liver was failing. Luckily, for this Marine veteran, he found cannabis — and it worked.

Why the hell is Norway’s Military in Syria?

“The ridiculous Norwegian army”?????

I do not believe that Norway’s special forces can be labeled ridiculous by any standard.

Their Norwegian Marinejegerkommandoen (MJK) and Forsvarets Spesialkommando (FSK) cooperate and cross train with Special Air Services (SAS) and Special Boat Service (SBS), Delta Force and the Navy SEALs among others.

And although I like your work, Partisangirl, they will kick your ass any time.

US-led coalition strike against Syrian pro-govt forces ‘unlawful’ – Russia

US-led coalition strike against Syrian pro-govt forces ‘unlawful’ – Russia:

The US-led coalition strike on a pro-government convoy in Syria is illegitimate and represents yet another violation of Syria’s sovereignty, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

“The American command explained the strike on pro-government Syrian forces, saying that these forces represented a threat to opposition which cooperates with the US-led coalition,” Lavrov said on Friday. “Whatever the reason for the US command to make this decision, this strike is illegitimate and unlawful. It’s yet another harsh violation of Syria’s sovereignty.”

U.S. Attacks Syrian Government Forces – It Now Has To Make Its Choice

U.S. Attacks Syrian Government Forces – It Now Has To Make Its Choice:

Addendum added below

The Syrian army is on the way to liberate the ISIS besieged city of some 100,000 and garrison of Deir Ezzor in the east of the country. The U.S. has trained a few thousand “New Syrian Army” insurgents in Jordan and is reportedly prepared to march these and its own forces from Jordan through the east-Syrian desert all the way up to Raqqa and Deir Ezzor. About a year ago it occupied the al-Tanf (al-Tanaf) border station which consists of only a few buildings in the mid of the desert. The station between Syria and Iraq near the Jordan border triangle was previously held by a small ISIS group.

A U.S. move from the south up towards the Euphrates would cut off the Syrian government from the whole south-east of the country and from its people in Deir Ezzor. While that area is sparsely populated it also has medium size oil and gas fields and is the land connection to the Syrian allies in Iraq.
