Voters oppose Heinrich’s stance on Syria Protesters gather outside the senator’s ABQ off ice by Ardee Napolitano @ArdeeTheJourno

Not forthefirsttime,Albuquerque residents raised placards and took to the streets against military intervention in Syria. This time, they rallied outside a United States senator’s office. Protesters gathered outside the office of New Mexico Sen. Martin Heinrich downtown early Tuesday morning to criticize Heinrich’s support for U.S. military intervention in the two-year Syrian civil war. Sayrah Namaste, a member of the American Friends Service Committee that organized the event, said Heinrich is misrepresenting New Mexicans by supporting military intervention. “He talked about looking at the eyes of his children with pride that he will go kill other children,” Namaste said. “It’s sickening to me. I’m a mother — I’d look at the eyes of my daughter. Since she’s been alive … she’s never known how it is to be at war. I see a child who wants us not to go to war.” Talks of military intervention in Syria started among the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council two weeks ago,

Cardiel’s grandmother Karen Cathey, center right, and Tina Kachele, center left, were among those protesting Heinrich’s decision to support U.S. intervention in Syria’s civil war. Heinrich issued a letter Monday stating, “I can look my children in the eye and explain my positions with honesty, never having to explain why a vote was the result of politics or pressure. … I am taking a position that I believe is in line with those values.”

Brief address focuses on delayed Syria response David Espo, Julie Pace The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — United States President Barack Obama said in a nationally televised address Tuesday night that recent diplomatic steps offer “the potential to remove the threat of chemical weapons” inside Syria without the use of outside force, but he also insisted the U.S. military will keep the pressure on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad “and be ready to respond” if other measures fail. Speaking from the East Room of the White House, Obama said he asked congressional leaders to postpone a vote on legislation he has been seeking to authorize the use of military force against Syria. Acknowledging the weariness the nation feels after a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, Obama said, “America is not the world’s policeman.” And yet, he added, “When with modest effort and risk we can stop children from being gassed to death and thereby make our own children safer over the long run, I believe we should act. That’s what makes America different. That’s what makes us exceptional.” “Our ideals and principles, as well as our national security, are at stake in Syria,” he declared. The speech capped a frenzied 10day stretch of events that began when Obama unexpectedly announced he was stepping back from a threatened military strike and first asking Congress

to pass legislation authorizing the use of force against Assad. With public opinion polls consistently showing widespread opposition to American military intervention, the White House has struggled mightily to generate support among lawmakers — liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans alike — who have expressed fears of involvement in yet another war in the Middle East and have questioned whether U.S. national security interests are at stake in Syria. Obama had trouble, as well, building international support for a military attack designed to degrade Assad’s military. Suddenly, though, events took

“Our ideals and principles, as well as our national security, are at stake in Syria,” ~Barack Obama U.S. President another unexpected turn this week. First Russia and then Syria responded positively to a seemingly off-hand remark from Secretary of State John Kerry indicating that the crisis could be defused if Damascus agreed to put its chemical weapons under international control. Obama said he was sending Secretary of State John Kerry to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei

Lavrov on Thursday, and added, “I will continue my own discussion” with Russian President Vladimir Putin. At the same time, he said the United States and its allies would work with Russia and China to present a resolution to the United Nations Security Council “requiring Assad to give up his chemical weapons and to ultimately destroy them under international control.” In a speech that lasted 16 minutes, Obama recounted the events of the deadly chemical weapons attack on Aug. 21 that the United States blames on Assad. “When dictators commit atrocities, they depend upon the world to look the other way until these horrifying pictures fade from memory,” he said. “But these things happened. The facts cannot be denied.” The president said firmly that Assad’s alleged attack was “not only a violation of international law, it’s also a danger to our security.” If diplomacy now fails and the United States doesn’t act, he said, “the Assad regime will see no reason to stop using chemical weapons” and “other tyrants will have no reason to think twice about acquiring poison gas and using” it. Over time, he added, U.S. troops could face the threat of chemical warfare, and if fighting escapes Syria’s border, “these weapons could threaten allies like Turkey, Jordan and Israel.” The president sought to deal methodically with what he said were questions asked by lawmakers and

citizens who took the time to write him with their concerns about U.S. military action. “I will not put American boots on the ground in Syria,” he said. “I will not pursue an open-ended action like Iraq or Afghanistan. I will not pursue a prolonged air campaign like Libya or Kosovo. “This would be a targeted strike to achieve a clear objective: deterring the use of chemical weapons and degrading Assad’s capabilities.” In the run-up to the president’s speech, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel pointedly told a congressional

hearing it was not time to let the threat of military retaliation lapse. “For this diplomatic option to have a chance at succeeding, the threat of a U.S. military action — the credible, real threat of U.S. military action — must continue,” he declared. At the same hearing, Kerry said any diplomacy “cannot be a process of delay. This cannot be a process of avoidance.” He later added that any agreement must include binding consequences if Syria fails to comply, and lawmakers moved to rewrite pending legislation along the same lines.

President Obama blended the threat of military action with the hope of a diplomatic solution as he works to strip Syria of its chemical weapons.

Police: woman reports man for harassment

On Sept. 1, a UNMPD officer received a station report about a male subject “approaching a female multiple times,” according to the report. The woman allegedly told police that an African American male approached her on Sept. 1 near Satellite Coffee on Central. The woman allegedly gave the man a fake name when he asked for hers. Their conversation ended when the woman entered Satellite. According to the report, the man approached the woman again at Zimmerman Library on Sept. 3, and then “startled her” outside Castetter Hall later that day. He reportedly asked her during the latter incident if “she was interested in house sitting and if she was single,” and she rebuffed him. On Sept. 4, the man allegedly spotted the woman getting off a bus and greeted her by “touching her shoulder, but she pulled away quickly.” Police are currently investigating the incident.

Sorority reports man loitering near house On Sept. 4, female residents of an on-campus sorority house alerted police about a “Hispanic male loitering in and around the rear” of the house, according to a police report. The man had allegedly been reported to police by the sorority for wandering around the area earlier that day. When police arrived, residents directed police to a man walking east on Mesa Vista Drive. Police stopped and detained the man. UNMPD later learned that the man had been asked by police “on more than one occasion” not to return to the sorority area and to the University, according to the report. Police placed the man in custody and transferred him to the Bernalillo County Municipal Detention Center. He was charged for criminal trespass.

RIME BRIEFS police allegedly identified that “it was apparent that water had been spilled all around the area.” An empty Styrofoam cup was located near the computer. The student suspected that her roommate caused the damage because the two “had not been getting along lately,” according to the report. Police contacted the student’s roommate about the incident, but the roommate said she didn’t know anything about the damage, according to the report. The roommate reportedly said the dorm room was always open, so several people might have entered and caused the damage. Police said the roommate seemed “genuine” in her response, and advised her to contact UNMPD with any additional information on the case.

Report: visitor lobbed food at security officer On Sept. 5, a UNMPD officer was dispatched regarding a possible battery. A woman was allegedly trying to deliver food to a friend in a room at the UNM Hospital, but a hospital security officer told her she had the wrong room number and denied

the woman entry. The woman allegedly became “agitated,” but continued to approach the room’s door and insisted she enter. The hospital security officer then reportedly explained why he would not let her in, so the woman allegedly “backed away 10 feet from the door and threw the bag of food at (the hospital security officer) striking him in the chest.” According to the report, the woman admitted to throwing the bag, but claimed that the bag was thrown at the security officer’s feet. According to the report, however, a surveillance video revealed that the bag indeed struck the security officer on the chest. The hospital security officer was not injured and did not want to press charges, according to the report. Police warned the woman that she could go to jail for the incident, but the case is now closed.

after the U.N. started an investigation into Syrian President Bashar AlAssad’s possible use of chemical weapons against rebel forces. The five permanent members of the Security Council are China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States. On Aug. 29, the British Parliament rejected U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron’s proposal for military intervention in Syria. That day, Russia and China officially recorded their support for Assad. But on Aug. 31, U.S. President Barack Obama announced that although he was willing and ready to initiate a military strike against Syria, he would seek the U.S. Congress’ views on the matter first. He said he planned to seek a Congressional vote on the planned intervention after Labor Day. According to French news agency Agence France-Presse, French President François Hollande said on Aug. 31 that he “has felt the same resolution beside Obama” and that he has decided that France will serve as America’s principal ally in the proposed operation. Namaste said Albuquerque activists have met with members of Heinrich’s office in the last week to express their opposition to intervention. But she said the senator has brushed their opinions aside. “We’ve had two meetings with Heinrich’s office about why we’re opposed,” she said. “We know that the majority of his constituents are opposed. His statement was very offensive; he’s not representing his constituents. This is not about a popularity contest, it’s about democracy.” Heinrich issued his official stance on intervention in a letter addressed to his constituents released Monday night. Heinrich said his support for military intervention “is the most difficult (decision) I have experienced in my more than eight years in public office.” “I have always believed that my decisions in public office should reflect my best judgment and what I believe to be the best course for our nation,” he said in the letter. “Just as importantly, it means that I can look my children in the eye and explain my positions with honesty, never having to explain why a vote was the result of politics or pressure.

been a vote yet.” According to an article by the Washington Post, 29 senators have already voted against military action, and 23 have voted for it as of press time. Among 48 other senators who have not yet voted, nine lean toward voting no. On the other hand, 149 members of the House of Representatives have already voted against intervention, and 26 have voted for it, as of press time. Out of 258 representatives who have not yet voted, 102 lean toward voting no. UNM student Lissie Perkal said that, as a person who has worked in child care, she feels appalled by Heinrich’s stance. She said attacking Syria would kill civilians. “It seems like it’s for political gain and not actually because he thinks it’s the best decision,” she said. “I’m demanding accountability. I want him to know that he would not get away with it. He needs to be responsible and needs to be held responsible for the lives of Syrians.” Instead, Perkal said she urges the government to address the refugee problem in the country. She said that at the moment, there are more than 1 million Syrian refugees. And she said Heinrich should prioritize the U.S.’s national problems, such as education and health care, before making additional ones abroad. “Tuition just went up, and a lot of my friends couldn’t even afford to go to school now,” she said. “I’m here struggling just to follow through on our access to education, and Heinrich is there talking about military intervention in Syria.” Although Perkal said she is not optimistic that Heinrich would change his mind, she said she is “confident that this would send a message.” On the contrary, Namaste said she expects to see the U.S. military to stay within its bounds and to not follow through with intervention. “Obama seems to be backpedalling,” she said. “I think there’s a chance we won’t go.” Congress started to discuss the possible intervention when it returned to Washington, D.C. Monday, and may vote on it in the next two weeks. There is no exact voting date as of press time, as President Obama delayed the Congressional vote in a speech Tuesday evening.

is in line with those values.“ As part of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Heinrich said he has been briefed on Syria’s civil war for eight months now. He said the U.S. government is sure that Assad carried out the alleged chemical attack against rebel forces on Aug. 21. The chemical attack, if dismissed, will become “part of a long and predictable pattern of behavior” by Assad, Heinrich said, making U.S. military intervention in Syria essential. “I believe that when any country chooses to ignore the international norms against chemical weapons, they have made a deeply immoral decision with worldwide implications, implications that the United States and the international community cannot ignore,” he said. “This is not Iraq, and we have a moral obligation to deter Assad and every regime watching him.” But Heinrich said he will “continue to support additional foreign aid to alleviate the humanitarian and refugee crisis in Syria and neighboring countries.” Heinrich said he hopes his and Obama’s stance on the war will “send a message to Bashar Al-Assad.” Still, he said the U.S. should not get involved “directly” in Syria’s civil war. “I remain of the belief that as a nation, we cannot become directly entangled in a civil war that we do not fully understand,” he said. “It is for this reason that I do not think we should arm the Syrian rebels and I do not support sending American troops into this conflict.” Namaste said she organized the protest Monday night immediately after she received Heinrich’s letter. About 15 people stood with her at the event. “He needs to change his status,” she said. “Other Democratic senators are taking back being in favor. Russia is negotiating with Syria. There’s diplomacy happening. Why would he take an aggressive stance when diplomacy is happening?” And the partisan environment of the Senate does not help to prevent intervention, Namaste said. “Democrats don’t know what to do,” she said. “They have their party telling them what to do, but they have their constituents that they’re supposed to represent saying something else. I’m glad there hasn’t

US involvement in Syria is hypocritical, not moral Editor, We all feel morally outraged over war crimes. And dilemmas arise as to how to stop them. How do we somehow ‘punish’ just the perpetrators without perpetrating more death and destruction on innocent people ourselves? Many politicians have facile answers for this question, falling under the irrational, hitor-miss rubric of ‘better to do something than nothing’ — a rationale in which credibility carries much more weight than morality. Al-Assad is a ruthless dictator. But the U.S. inflicting more deaths on the Syrian people, however limited the strike, will not end the civil war and, in fact, may only fan its flames. Syria is not Nazi Germany. Its war does not have all the nonsectarian, pro-democratic good guys on one side and all the genocidal bad guys on the other — no more than the Iraqi or Afghan wars did. Most Americans are against any military intervention in Syria. We are tired of war and policing the world for dubious underlying motives. There would be no more interest in the Syrian civil war than in any of the many recent African civil wars, with equal atrocities, if the ‘stability’ of an oil-rich region wasn’t a factor. So let’s not confuse interests that are ultimately economic or geopolitical, such as Iranian-Israeli tensions, with moral ones. If the issues were truly moral, there would be more outrage at the hundreds of civilians and children killed by Obama-ordered drone strikes in the region and elsewhere, according to Columbia Law School’s Human Rights Institute. A U.S. military strike will not end the Syrian civil war nor make the Middle East more stable or democratic. There will be no Arab hearts and minds won, and Israel and Iran will still be committed to each other’s destruction. It will be an ineffective, hypocritical and deadly gesture. And, in fact, that’s the way most Americans and the rest of the world see it. We just need our politicians to stand with us. Chuck Gasparovic Daily Lobo reader

US foreign policy endangers us all by Jason Darensburg

The world has become a far more dangerous place since September 11, 2001. Since that terrible day, America’s belligerent, counter-productive foreign policy has created a firestorm of chaos and escalating conflict around the world. In the wake of two catastrophic, incredibly costly wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and in the midst of a never-ending “war on terror,” the U.S. can no longer pretend to be the champion of freedom and democracy in the world. We’ve lost any credibility or influence we may have once had in global affairs, due to the misguided policies currently embraced by the military junta that runs this country. As I write this, the United States is planning to join the conflagration in Syria, Egypt is exploding in civil war and the reconstituted Israeli ‘peace process’ is already in tatters. Excuse me while I roll my eyes and sigh in disgust. America now dominates the world through the use of military force alone. The U.S. accounts for 43 percent of the world’s total military spending and 30 percent of all global arms exports, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute’s Yearbook 2010. These figures confirm that America is the leader in both categories, and that business at present is booming for weapons manufacturers, pun intended. It’s virtually the only sector of the economy that’s healthy: America is by far Earth’s number-one exporter of weapons of mass destruction. No wonder the world is so dangerous. History has shown that we’re not too picky about who we sell our advanced military hardware to, either; we’ve sold to despotic regimes in Pakistan, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Egypt and Israel — to name just a few. Today, our hyper-militarized global empire pervades every aspect of this supposedly “peace-loving” society.

America is a violent, brutal and unforgiving place to live. Many of our fellow citizens subsist under desperate conditions, barely able to survive. We occupy a reality more akin to a totalitarian police state than a democratic republic. Our aggressively militaristic culture is reinforced by a vast network of economic and political interests which are intimately connected to major American corporations, think-tanks and research universities like UNM. Americans still find it hard to accept that their country is viewed in many parts of the world as an irresponsible, dangerous international bully rather than a “Global force for Good,” as the latest U.S. Navy propaganda claims. Due to the extreme secrecy under which our government operates, the American people are kept ignorant of the fact that the United States currently garrisons the planet with over 800 military bases in more than 150 countries. Historians call this the ‘new American Empire,’ and we are witnessing its final death throes. In addition to the proliferation of officially acknowledged military bases, the U.S. also maintains an unknown number of secret bases not found on any government audit. Many of these clandestine outposts are operated by the CIA, NSA and even more secret agencies like the National Reconnaissance Office. They’re engaged in intercepting communications from all over the world, including those of American citizens. They keep tabs on everything we say, tweet, email or post online. The government employs millions of soldiers, spies, technicians, civilians and private contractors — along with their dependents — all over the world. Chalmers Johnson was an esteemed scholar, historian and professor at UC San Diego. He was also a former analyst for the CIA, so he had a deep understanding of how the national security state operates. Johnson died in November 2010, and he is sorely missed. He was the author of several books, including

“Blowback: The Costs and Consequences of American Empire,” in which he explored in minute detail the machinations of America’s foreign policy and its likely consequences. Johnson is responsible for introducing the terms “blowback” and “unintended consequences” into our political rhetoric, both of which describe CIA tradecraft. Johnson was one of the most outspoken critics of U.S. foreign policy and militarism. He told Democracy Now!: “There is no more unstable political configuration, history tells us, than the one of the United States today, that is: a domestic democracy combined with a foreign empire. The two don’t mix. You can be one, you can be the other, but you don’t get to do both.” In other words, no military empire can survive forever and remain a democracy. Unfortunately, few empires give up their domains voluntarily. Johnson wrote: “The danger I foresee is that the United States is embarked on a path not unlike that of the former Soviet Union during the 1980s. The USSR collapsed for three basic reasons: internal economic contradictions driven by ideological rigidity; imperial overstretch; and an inability to reform. The similarities are obvious and it is nowhere written that the United States, in its guise as an empire dominating the world, must go on forever…” Chalmers Johnson knew exactly what he was talking about.

Music about finding self


by Jyllian Roach @Jyllian_R The bearded Seth Woods sits barefoot in front of a record collection four shelves high. He closes his eyes and begins to strum his acoustic guitar. By the time the lyrics of “Many Long Ago” escape his lips, he has seemingly forgotten there are people in the room. For Woods, known onstage as The Whiskey Priest, his music is less about what he has to say to the world than about discovering hidden aspects of himself. “Making music, for me, is about self-understanding as much as it is about self-expression,” he said. “Music has definitely become about figuring myself out.” Like many musicians, Woods has trouble fitting his music into a genre, referring to it himself as “acoustic indie-folk.” But this is because Woods said the lyrics always come first. “Songwriting comes first and foremost, and then from there I can decide how it’s going to sound,” he said. The Texas-born musician has lived in Albuquerque for two years, though his music has traveled much farther. “Wave and Cloud” and “Lost Wages,” Woods’ first two albums, were distributed by UK record company Rainboot (label). Without hype or advertising, Woods and producer Alex Dupree put “Wave and Cloud” on, a site which connects fans directly to artists, according to the website. The next day, Rainboot (label)’s owner contacted Woods. “I thought it was a scam, like ‘This doesn’t happen,’” Woods said. “But I started talking to him and he was really genuine.”

Summer squash versatile, delicious, cheap by Steve “Mo” Fye As the summer nears its end, gardens are full of ripe summer squash. Home gardeners may be giving squash away by the bagful. At growers’ markets and in produce sections, these versatile veggies are about the cheapest they will be all year. So what’s there to do with this delicious bounty? Eat it up, of course. Here is a list of simple, healthful recipes for this wonderful fall delight. Squash has a very low glycemic index of about 15, compared to potatoes that rate between 50 and 60 on the glycemic scale. Instead of potato pancakes, substitute grated squash for wonderful fritters. Squash Fritters Makes 6 to 8 fritters 4 medium summer squash (zucchini, yellow, crookneck or Mexican gray) 1 tablespoon kosher salt 1 teaspoon white pepper 2 eggs 1 teaspoon garlic powder (optional, ¼ cup flour or 1/8 cup corn starch) (optional, ½ bell pepper or 2 jalapeños, diced fine) Oil for frying Wash and grate the squash, first removing the ends. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Place the grated squash in a strainer or colander and weight it down with a bowl full of water to continue squeezing out liquid. If not using starch as a binder, it is crucial to get rid of as much liq-

uid as possible. Toss the squash (and peppers, if using) with the starch or flour (if using), and in another bowl, beat the eggs with the seasonings. Heat a small amount of oil in a heavy, large frying pan. A non-stick or cast-iron pan is ideal. Use medium to medium-high heat. Mix all ingredients together. Clean, bare hands work the best. Take about an egg-sized amount of the mixture, squeeze the liquid out one last time, and place in the hot oil. Do not crowd the pan. Cook until golden brown on both sides. (About four to five minutes per side.) Let drain on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any extra oil. Serve immediately. The popularity of the Paleolithic diet means that certain foods are no longer allowed. Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans or ceci beans, are forbidden from Paleo recipes. Squash can be substituted to make a hummus that may fool some folks into thinking it contains chickpeas. Prepared from raw squash, it is perfect for those who choose to eat mostly raw foods. However, raw squash can be somewhat bitter at times. Roasting the peeled, diced squash at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes removes the bitterness and gives a deeper flavor. Squash Hummus (makes about a quart) 4 medium summer squash 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus 1 tablespoon for drizzling 1 to 1-1/2 tablespoons kosher salt

Steve “Mo” Fye / Daily Lobo Substituting squash for chickpeas in hummus provides a Paleo-friendly dip.

1 teaspoon white pepper 3 to 4 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed butter) or almond butter 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 to 2 pinches ground cayenne pepper 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice Chopped fresh herbs or greens for garnish (parsley, sage, arugula or kale is nice) Peel and chop the squash. If roasting prior, spread squash on a cookie sheet and cook for 15 to 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning. Place in a bowl and drizzle olive oil on top. Garnish with chopped herbs or greens. Serve with crudités, pita, kale chips or pretty much anything you want to dip. This makes a nice spread for sandwiches as well. This dip will keep for two to three days if refrigerated in a sealed container.

Steve “Mo” Fye / Daily Lobo Savory squash fritters have a much lower glycemic index than potato pancakes. For late-summer cookouts, grilled squash is a wonderful accompaniment to anything cooked or smoked. Squash marinates quickly and thoroughly, so this can be prepared with just a little notice. Grilled Summer Squash (serves 8 as a side dish) 4 medium summer squash, washed with ends removed 1-1/2 cups soy sauce 1 cup red wine vinegar 1 tablespoon garlic powder 2 teaspoons white pepper 2 Tablespoons minced fresh herbs such as oregano, parsley, marjoram, sage or tarragon (or 2 teaspoons dry herbs) Blend all the marinade ingredients (everything save the squash) and set aside. Slice the squash lengthwise about 1/4 to 1/8 inch thick. Toss in the marinade and seal in a large zipper bag. Refrigerate, turning

occasionally for at least 20 minutes. The squash will be best if it is marinated for 45 minutes to an hour, but no longer than a few hours, as the vinegar will ruin the texture. On a medium-hot grill, either gas or charcoal, cook the squash for two to three minutes and turn. Setting the squash at an angle will leave attractive grill marks and allow the squash to cook evenly. The finished squash will have dark grill marks and be cooked through, but not too soft. Depending on the grill heat, three to four turns will be enough. The grilled squash is good warm or cold. To avoid wasting charcoal, make a large batch of squash and grill it after all the main course dishes are done. This recipe freezes very well and will keep for months. For vegetarians, strips of grilled squash are wonderful with meat substitutes such as veggie burgers.
