BEIJING - Chinese lawmakers Tuesday heard a draft supervision law and a reshuffle plan on the State Council, or the cabinet, at the ongoing national legislative session.
Then there is the question of legality. No major US news outlet has asked whether the airstrikes are even legal under international law or whether they constitute a violation of the UN Charter.
Key among these is whether the media should take the US government's words at face value that it was indeed the Syrian government, not the rebels or anyone else, that used chemical weapons, if they were in fact used.
Those are just some of the many serious questions raised by the airstrikes, questions that the increasingly "patriotic" US news outlets failed to ask.
According to last year's World Inequality Report by the World Inequality Lab at the Paris School of Economics, the top 1 percent captured 28 percent of the aggregate increase in real incomes in North America and Western Europe between 1980 and 2016, while the bottom 50 percent received just 9 percent of it.
