Destabilization of Africa: Preparing the continent for the Multinationals

By Carla Stea Global Research January 10, 2014 On December 24th 2013, the United Nations Security Council voted to increase peacekeeping forces in South Sudan, whose independence from the North US-NATO powers celebrated only recently.  Democratic elections in South Sudan did not, however, lead to peace and stability.  Now, two ethnic groups, in South Sudan, the Dinka and Nuer are slaughtering each other.  UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stated:  “We ...Read full article...

Egypt’s Pinochet

Junta power runs Egypt. It reflects the worst of fascism writ large. General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi rules as strongman. He heads the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF). He’s Washington’s man in Cairo. Since August 2012, he’s been top military commander. He’s Defense and Military Production Minister. He’s a 1977 Egyptian Military Academy graduate. He got US training. He’s a US War College graduate. He maintains close Pentagon ...Read full article...

Syrian Atrocities supported directly by United States

Who is behind these atrocities. What is the agenda. From the very outset of this conflict,  the Western military alliance has supported the “Al Qaeda affiliated rebels”. “Affiliated” to Whom? That is the Fundamental Question.   Al Qaeda, lest we forget is a creation of the CIA. Al Qaeda is an intelligence asset.  All the so-called Al Qaeda affiliated rebels in the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia and South ...Read full article...

The West is the Architect of Terrorism in Syria

Press TV has conducted an interview with Michel Chossudovsky of the Centre for Research on Globalization in Montreal about the issue of the Western proxy war in Syria and the fresh advances being made by the army of the Syrian government in its fight against insurgents backed by the West, Israel and some Persian Gulf states.

Al Qaeda Rebels Supported by Uncle Sam

US, Allies to Blame for Chemical Attack in Syria An analyst says the United States and its allies in the region are to blame for having helped militants in Syria to launch the deadly chemical attack on civilians in August. Michel Chossudovsky told Press TV in an interview on Friday that the US-led “military alliance” backed “the rebels in using chemical weapons” in Syria. “The United States and its ...Read full article...

Syria Peace Talks? Obama wants Regime Change

Obama’s war on Syria rages. Opposition forces are divided. Kofi Annan’s March 2012 six-point plan failed. Three months later, so did Geneva I. June 2012 talks were called a “last ditch effort” to halt violence. Similar headlines followed Annan’s plan. Fighting rages daily. Obama bears full responsibility. He deplores peace. He wants regime change. He’s supporting proxy death squads. He has been all along. They target Assad loyalists. Dozens ...Read full article...

US instigated Violence, Instability, Torture and Deaths in Libya

Wherever America shows up, mass slaughter, destruction, instability and human misery follow. Today’s Libya reflects Washington’s deplorable legacy. North Africa’s most developed country was ravaged and destroyed. Anarchical charnel house conditions replaced it. Disinformation.com listed 16 things Libyans lost. They include: (1) free electricity (2) interest free loans from state-owned banks (3) homes considered a human right (4) 60,000 dinars ($50,000) given newlyweds to begin married life, buy a home, ...Read full article...

In Syrian US-NATO Sponsored Death Squads Integrate “Opposition Forces”

Modeled on US covert ops in Central America, the Pentagon’s “Salvador Option for Iraq” initiated in 2004 was carried out under the helm of the US Ambassador to Iraq John Negroponte (2004-2005) together with Robert Stephen Ford, who was appointed US Ambassador to Syria in January 2011, less than two months before the beginning of the armed insurgency directed against the government of Bashar Al Assad. “The Salvador Option” is a ...Read full article...

“Syria will Never become a Western Puppet State”

President Bashar al-Assad stressed that Syria is a sovereign country that will fight terrorism and will freely build relationships with countries in a way that best serves the interests of the Syrian people. In an interview with the Russian newspaper of Izvestia, President al-Assad stressed that “the majority of those we are fighting are Takfiris, who adopt the al-Qaeda doctrine, in addition to a small number of outlaws.” On ...Read full article...

The Syrian Chemical Weapons Use Canard

Throughout months of conflict, Assad faced repeated accusations of chemical weapons use. No evidence whatever suggests it. Clear evidence suggests otherwise. Wrongful accusations persist. They ring hollow. They lack credibility. It doesn’t matter. They repeat with disturbing regularity. On August 21, The New York Times headlined “Syrian Rebels Accuse Government of Chemical Attack.” They claimed rockets targeting areas east of Damascus “carr(ied) poison gas. (They said) people had been killed in ...Read full article...

Turkish Prime Minister accusses Israel of Orquestrating Egyptian Coup

Engineering Potential Disaster in Syria

The old saying goes be careful what you wish for. You may get more than you bargained for. Washington’s wars often don’t turn out as planned. Middle East, North African, Eurasian countries are embroiled in conflict. No end game looms. Unresolved conflicts continue. Escalation’s likely. US-sponsored death squads infest the region. They commit mass murder and destruction. Official silence followed Al Nusra militants massacring 450 Kurdish civilians. The mainstream ...Read full article...

US-Backed Death Squads Massacre Hundreds of Syrian Kurds

Western leaders are silent. The mainstream media ignore what demands headlines. Cold-blooded murder doesn’t matter. It’s too insignificant to report. Managed news misinformation substitutes. Syria is America’s war. It was planned years ago. Death squads were recruited. Al Qaeda, Al Nusra, and other terrorists are Washington’s shock troops. They’re well funded, armed, trained and directed. Their mission is mass murder and destruction. They target innocent civilians. They slaughter them ...Read full article...

Duplicitous Committee of Inquiry on Syria

In September 2011, Paulo Pinheiro was appointed Chairman of a three-member International Commission of Inquiry for Syria (COI). Its mandate is investigating human rights abuses. It’s an imperial tool. Pinheiro abhors peace. He turns truth on its head. His reports bear testimony to his bias. He points fingers the wrong way. He blames Assad for Western-backed terrorist crimes. He does so consistently. On July 30, Syria’s permanent UN envoy Bashar ...Read full article...
