Thirst, Drought and Hunger in Morocco

There is a Morocco that asks for water to plant and another that needs water to drink. The swamps are already at 33% capacity and there is no sign of rain; not even a drop. The drought in Morocco endangers indispensable harvests in a country where agriculture contributes 14% of GDP, twice as much as tourism. The people who aspired to sow to eat broke into the scene this week ...Read full article...

The Psychology of Desperate People: Stampede for Food in Morocco

15 died and 40 others were injured during the food stampede. In prepper lore, there is a theory about how badly desperate people are likely to behave. Many folks outside the community scoff at this theory. They believe that we have become more civilized than to utilize violent measures when hunger strikes. But an incident in Morocco the other day showed us exactly how hungry people behave. And it isn’t ...Read full article...

Yemen decimated by Cholera, Hunger and War

In Yemen, the cholera epidemic is out of control. It already affects 300,000 people while 1,700 Yemenis have lost their lives. The current epidemic is the culmination of a catastrophic situation, which includes a plunge into a war – for more than two years – since March 2015. Civil confrontation faces pro-government forces and Hutu rebels. This battle cannot be understood in its amplitude without taking into account the ...Read full article...

Peace in Syria for the benefit of Israel and Turkey?

As we approach the end of the war against Syria, none of the initial goals of the Anglo-Saxons have been clearly reached. Not only has the Muslim Brotherhood failed to triumph via the Arab Springs, but they seem to be losing all over the region, apart from in Qatar and Turkey. And although Syria is mostly destroyed, Syrian society and its multi-confessional model has resisted – the Silk Road ...Read full article...

US-Supported Terrorists Plan More Chemical Attacks in Syria

Washington wants endless war and regime change in Syria. It wants pro-Western puppet governance replacing sovereign Syrian independence. Along with NATO, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Jordan, it continues recruiting, arming, funding, training and directing ISIS and other terrorist fighters, used as imperial foot soldiers. It systematically tries undermining Russia’s good faith efforts for conflict resolution while claiming otherwise. On Thursday, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova provided ...Read full article...

At Least 2,000 detainees subject to Torture in Yemeni Black Sites

According to AP News, at least 18 secret black site torture prisons operate in Yemen. They’re run by the despotic UAE, along with rogue Yemeni elements trained by the Gulf state. Washington is likely behind what’s going on – US citizens complicit in interrogations. None of this would be happening without US involvement and approval. An estimated 2,000 or more detainees are brutalized in captivity – not al-Qaeda fighters ...Read full article...

Yemen Faces Social, Economic and Political Collapse

Yemen is dying. Obama’s war, now Trump’s, complicit with Saudi Arabia, is destroying the nation, killing it. Millions of its citizens suffer from endless war, related blockade, untreated diseases, starvation and overall deprivation – US-sponsored genocide, Saudi terror-bombing doing its dirty work. Stephen O’Brien is UN Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator. Issuing a statement on what’s ongoing, he said “the situation on the ground has continued to spiral ...Read full article...

Libya: A US-Created Terrorist Haven

US-led NATO aggression on Libya raped and destroyed its sovereign independence – one of history’s great crimes. Africa’s developed nation was transformed into a cauldron of failed state, terrorist-infested violence, chaos, deep poverty, mass unemployment, and devastating human misery. Libya was Obama’s war, launched in 2011, orchestrated by Hillary Clinton. Her remark after hearing of Muammar Gaddafi’s death, saying “(w)e came, we saw, he died” alone will long define ...Read full article...

US Support for Terrorists in Syria Prevents Conflict Resolution

The myth of so-called “moderate rebels” in Syria persists. None exist. All anti-government militants are US-supported terrorists – largely imported from scores of countries. Russia’s good faith efforts for conflict resolution aren’t good enough because Washington consistently undermines them – wanting endless war and regime change, not resolution, peace, stability and respect for Syrian sovereignty. America is the persistent spanner in the works, preventing global peace, stability and security ...Read full article...

Why did Trump bomb Shayrat?

Contrary to appearances, the US administration, far from behaving erratically, is attempting to define the framework for its foreign policy. President Donald Trump is negotiating with a spokesperson for the deep State which has been governing his country since 11 September 2001 – and it would seem that they have found the conditions for an agreement, whose details are still to be specified. Members of the administration will have ...Read full article...

Pentagon Heads Toward Escalating Genocide in Yemen

Yemen is Obama’s war, now Trump’s, complicit with Saudi terror-bombing, massacring civilians indiscriminately, causing vast destruction, human suffering and starvation. A previous article explained millions of Yemenis face slow, painful deaths from lack of food needed to survive, blockaded coastal areas preventing it from entering the country. Amounts airlifted in are woefully inadequate. Media scoundrels suppress the ongoing horror, ignoring US responsibility for genocide. On March 26, the neocon/CIA-connected ...Read full article...

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...
