The photos taken from the Lebanese side that are circulating appear to be taken from between Yaroun and Aitaroun on a road that leads back to Bint Jbeil, which will bring back memories of the 2006 conflict as well

What is extraordinary is that he has got here, now the die is cast it seems.
I will start a thread to follow some developments. It is almost 8am in Caracas. This day, I suppose, will be a defining day. But then we saw that before when he was declared President on Jan. 23; and the border standoff and burning aid on Feb. 23.
What is interesting is that Russia and Turkey have sided strongly with the Maduro government, so it's hard to see how they hadn't advised the gov. But then again Turkey lost out in Sudan recently.

#HappeningNow: #FBI Director Wray speaks to the Council on Foreign Relations about national security, the threat posed by China, and the need for strong partnerships across many sectors. @CFR_org
Director Wray: Threats we face today are too diverse, too dangerous, & too all-encompassing for any of us to tackle alone. As #FBI Director, I can see firsthand the incredible strides we’ve made toward keeping people safe from all kinds of harm, & from a wide array of bad guys.
Director Wray: 9/11 was a game-changer in so many terrible ways – not just for the U.S. & our own national security apparatus, but for the whole world. Those attacks blew apart any notion of separation between foreign & domestic threats.

#HappeningNow: #FBI Director Wray joins @TheJusticeDept in announcing a national security action involving China.

Director Wray: China’s goal, simply put, is to replace the U.S. as the world’s leading superpower – and they’re using illegal methods to get there.

#WhyWeResist (THREAD) Renowned spiritual leader John Neuhas once said:
"Genuine #tolerance does not mean ignoring differences as if differences made no difference. Genuine tolerance means engaging differences w/in a bond of #civility & #respect." #CampaignforCivility 1/
Neuhas was not completely right. #Fascists, #WhiteSupremacists, Nazis, bigots, etc. lambast progressives for not tolerating their views. But hateful extremists use #tolerance merely as a tool to gain acceptance & obtain power. #CampaignforCivility #WhyWeResist 2/
Once fascists & bigots are in power, they vilify all who are different, all who dare to disagree. They only care about one thing: consolidating their power. #CampaignforCivility #WhyWeResist 3/
