TODAY IN HISTORY
Senator John McCain (R) wants the United States to end the violence in Syria through our military might. He is a hawk who overlooks the fact that we don’t have the money to fight another war in the Middle East. We are not the World Police or Guardian Angel of Democracy. Former President George W. Bush failed in Iraq and Afghanistan to build democracies in Muslim countries through force. As then, we have no national security interest in the civil war in Syria. Yes, people are dying in Syria. It should be up to Russia, Syria’s only ally, to convince President Assad to stop killing innocent women and children in his country. President Putin of Russia is silent on this matter.

Polling stations in Russia’s far east have opened as the presidential election gets underway.
Sunday’s vote sees Vladimir Putin hoping to become president again after four years as prime minister.
Mr Putin was Russia’s president from 2000-2008, but was barred by the constitution from standing for a third consecutive term.
He faces four challengers, three of whom he has defeated in previous elections.
The election is being held against a backdrop of popular discontent, sparked by allegations of fraud during December’s parliamentary elections.
Polls will be open from 8am to 8pm in each time zone, with the first opening in the Far East of the country at 20:00 GMT on Saturday, and the last in the western Kaliningrad region closing at 17:00 GMT on Sunday.
The Interior Ministry is bringing 6,000 police reinforcements to Moscow from the regions, according to Russian media reports. [BBC News] MORE
