Miley Cyrus And Syria’s Problem From Hell: Column

Both former Disney starlets-turned-pop-provocateurs, Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus have more than a few things in common — they recently collaborated on not-yet-leaked track “SMS (BANGERZ)” — and the pair are briefly seen shooting the breeze in a preview for MTV documentary Miley: The Movement. PHOTOS: Miley’s raciest outfits Their topic of conversation? The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, of course! “Everyone takes the VMAs so serious,” Cyrus, 20, tells VMAs vet Spears, 31, in a recording studio. “I just wanna come out and shoot a hot dog gun,” the former Hannah Montana star says as Spears giggles. “I just wanna have fun!” (Spears recently defended Cyrus’ VMAs stunt.) Premiering on MTV on Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 10 p.m., Miley: The Movement followed Cyrus during the four-month leadup to the release of new album Bangerz — including rehearsals, encounters with fans, and lots of one-on-one interviews. Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus in Miley’s new documentary “The Movement” “I was born to become who I am right now,” Cyrus says. “Right now I’m in a point in my career where I’m exactly what I wanna be, who I wanna be . . .I’m starting as a new artist now.” Her (compelling!) take on stirring on controversy?

In 1988, Iraq’s Saddam Hussein used poison gas, against both Iran and Iraq’s Kurdish minority . Simon Wiesenthal warned then that, if no action were taken, we would all eventually pay a price. We did when the U.S. went to war with an emboldened Saddam twice in the coming decades. Now, Hussein’s horrific crimes against the Kurds have inspired Bashar Assad and company to gas Syrian men, women and children. Needless negotiation Whatever the final outcome of the new Russia-U.S. agreement on Syria’s chemical weapons, we need to remind new generations that there are red lines worth fighting for. We had better relearn some brutal history lessons from “crimes against humanity” going back before the Holocaust. What’s at stake? If international red lines about the use of chemical weapons on civilians can be crossed with impunity, can a nuclear weapon deployed by a rogue state’s proxy terrorists be so unthinkable? If we don’t act against the gassing of innocents today, we better prepare for new atrocities. On that day, we’ll forget Miley Cyrus and carbon emissions will lose their drama. Abraham Cooper is associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, where Harold Brackman is a consultant.
