The UN has condemned the "massive waves of civilian displacement" and "major loss of civilian life" in the northeastern part of the country. Syria, Turkey, Russia, Israel and the US are all involved in the violence, but Washington puts the blame squarely on the Assad government of Syria in its struggle against rebels whom Russia and Syria regard as terrorists.

The former US national security adviser, John Bolton, once said: "There is no United Nations. There is an international community that occasionally can be led by the only real power left in the world - that is, the US."

When the West, led by the United States, wanted to make sure that World Wars I and II would not happen again, it helped create countless international organisations to maintain a US-led global order (NATO, WTO, WHO, UN, IEA, OECD, etc).

But this order is showing its age. It faces challenges within, increasing numbers of citizens in the West are turning their back on globalism, and taking out their frustrations on "the other" and people in the Global South argue that the old global order does not reflect the geopolitical realities of 2020.

So is the world heading to a state of "Westlessness" where the West no longer desires to maintain the old order? And if so, what happens to the notion of international law and institutions? Do smaller countries have to fend for themselves?

Join Steve Clemons and his panel of experts as they discuss the repercussions of "Westlessness".

Catching early signs of autism in infants. About one in fifty-nine children in the U.S. has an Autism Spectrum Disorder or ASD. Diagnosis usually takes place on or after the age of three. Is it possible to spot ASD earlier? A new study by researchers at the University of Miami, with funding from the National Science Foundation, has found that infants who exhibit early signs of social difficulty and have older siblings with Autism Spectrum disorder are at high risk of being diagnosed with ASD when they are older. Building on earlier research in Daniel Messinger's lab, PhD. candidate Katherine Martin and others studied 95 15-month old infants, both high and low risk. They examined how the infants react to being separated briefly from a parent. While most children will cry, they eventually calm down. In the study, the high-risk infants who were later diagnosed with autism had trouble calming down, even when the parent returned. The team says this indicates that the infants are not confident in their ability to be soothed. The researchers determined that these high-risk infants with insecure-resistant attachments were later more than nine times more likely to receive an ASD diagnosis than high-risk infants with secure attachments.
