Yemen bans US Aerial Strikes on its Territory

The civilian casualties of the latest US alleged operation against Al Qaeda in Yemen appear to have led the Yemeni government to suspend US government missions on its territory, the New York Times reports. The Yemeni authorities have yet to officially comment on the measure, but the bombing, the first of its kind authorized by President Donald Trump, caused about thirty deaths, half of them women and children, as ...Read full article...

The East Aleppo Syndrome

While the major powers who were supervising the jihadists in East Aleppo pretend to take interest in the fate of the inhabitants of the city – so as to exfiltrate their own soldiers – no-one seems to understand the drama that these Syrians have endured. Contrary to Western declarations, they have not suffered from the bombing so much as they have from the occupation of foreign jihadists and the ...Read full article...

US-backed Rebels Flee Aleppo as Syrian Army Moves in

Syrian rebels have withdrawn from the old city of Aleppo after the latest advances by the Army of Bashar al-Assad and its allies. The Syrian Army has now taken over the districts of Aquiul and Bab al Hadid, as reported Wednesday by the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights. The NGO detailed that government forces “combed” that area, which is located between the so-called barracks of Hanano-district and that were ...Read full article...

US Congress Is Sneaking Through Legislation for a No-Fly Zone Over Syria

When Americans aren’t paying attention, sneaky things tend to happen. While we were all distracted by the aftermath of the election, the US Congress decided to get the war ball rolling with Syria. On November 15, while cities across America were under siege from anti-Trump protesters and rioters, a handful of members of the House of Representatives quietly passed H.R.5732 – the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act of 2016. Of course, ...Read full article...

EU Imposing More Illegal Sanctions on Syria

Sanctions on Syria since Obama’s naked aggression began hurt ordinary people most. Imposing them without Security Council authorization is illegal. Syria is being raped and destroyed, though contesting valiantly with vital Russia, Iranian and Hezbollah help. President Bashar al-Assad enjoys overwhelming support. Yet US-led Western propaganda viciously misportrays him as a brutal dictator. I support him and his liberating mission – to free his country from the scourge of ...Read full article...

The Struggle to Preserve Syrian Sovereign Independence

Much depends on defeating the scourge of US imperialism throughout the Middle East. Preserving Syrian sovereignty and territorial integrity are key – why Russia is involved, along with wanting to prevent the spread of ISIS and other terrorist groups to its heartland. If Syria goes, Iran is next, followed by targeting Russia and China for regime change, possible nuclear war to achieve America’s imperial aims – madness if undertaken. ...Read full article...

Hillary’s War Crime

Today, October 20, 2016, is the fifth anniversary of the murder of Muammar Gaddafi by forces organized and unleashed by US President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Remember the killer bitch’s performance, with gleeful laughter, on CBS “News”: “We came, we saw, he died.” Muammar Gaddafi was the most progressive political leader in the world. Gaddafi used Libya’s oil wealth for the benefit of the Libyan people. ...Read full article...

The Real Humanitarian Crisis Is Not Aleppo

Why do we hear only of the “humanitarian crisis in Aleppo” and not of the humanitarian crisis everywhere else in Syria where the evil that rules in Washington has unleashed its ISIL mercenaries to slaughter the Syrian people? Why do we not hear about the humanitarian crisis in Yemen where the US and its Saudi Arabian vassal are slaughtering Yemeni women and children? Why don’t we hear about the ...Read full article...

US-Backed Terrorists Attacked Syria Humanitarian Convoy

Despite accusations from the United States government and the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban-Ki-Moon, it was America’s rogue allies, the so-called moderate rebels, the ones who attacked the humanitarian convoy. America and its rogue allies support all terrorist groups operating in Syria, including elements falsely called “moderates” – one of the many Big Lies about Obama’s war. Russian Defense Ministry spokesman General Igor Konashenkov categorically denied his government ...Read full article...

America “Accidentally” Attacks Syrian Army positions

More than 00 soldiers of the Syrian army men were murdered Saturday by a US-led coalition bombing, said a spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry. Since the announcement, the United States has said that the attack did happen, but that it was an “accident”. “Today, between 17.00 and 17.50 Moscow time, warplanes of the international coalition against the Islamic State -two F16 and two A10- carried out four attacks ...Read full article...

The Myth of Moderate Rebels in Syria

It’s a US-orchestrated hoax Russia goes along with. All anti-government forces in Syria are US-backed terrorists, death squads and moderate rebels are imported from scores of countries, used by Washington to advance its imperium. How then can nonexistent moderates be separated from Security Council-designated terrorists as Geneva terms stipulate? Why does Russia insist on it, a Foreign Ministry statement, saying “Lavrov drew attention to the violation of the regime ...Read full article...

US-Supported Terrorists Use Chemical Weapons Against Syrians

The reality of chemical weapons being used on civilians to instill terror and desperation is a signature of organizations that operate in Syria. America is a rogue state waging terror-war on humanity at home and abroad. US streets and communities nationwide are battlegrounds. All sovereign independent states are targeted for regime change. Wars of aggression rage in multiple theaters abroad, chemical and other banned weapons used freely against defenseless ...Read full article...

Rebellion in Turkey: Coup Attempt or False Flag?

Much needs sorting out before concluding one way or the other for sure. My initial reaction regarded what happened as a CIA-orchestrated plot, an agency specialty, wanting Erdogan replaced with a more easily controlled Turkish leader. I then had doubts. Alleged coup plotters were sloppy and ineffective, more like a gang unable to shoot straight. Toppling governments requires involvement of a select few capable individuals sworn to secrecy, careful ...Read full article...

US-Sponsored Genocide in Syria

From the republic’s inception, America waged genocidal wars without mercy, rule of law principles discarded, conquest and dominance sought at any price. At home, America’s native people were virtually exterminated, survivors consigned to concentration camp-like reservations, treated more like animals than people, impoverished, abused and denied their fundamental rights. Abroad, one country after another was raped and destroyed, endless horrors continuing. Tens of millions of corpses attest to a ...Read full article...

Error by Washington and Moscow in Syria

Washington and Moscow are working together to develop the military strength of the Syrian Kurds, allegedly to combat Daesh, but in reality to fight President Erdoğan, whom the two great powers would be happy to remove. But the apprentice dictator of Ankara is preparing to turn the tables. He has begun to re-shuffle the population at the Syrian frontier in order to catch the Turkish Kurds in a vice, ...Read full article...
