World War II: The Unknown War

In my June 6 column, “The Lies Grow More Audacious,” I mentioned that Obama and the British prime minister, who Obama has as a lap dog, just as George Bush had Tony Blair as lap dog, had managed to celebrate the defeat of Nazi Germany at the 70th anniversary of the Normandy invasion without mentioning the Russians. I pointed out the fact, well known to historians and educated people, ...Read full article...

War on Fundamental Rights in Ukraine

Previous articles called it war without mercy. This writer’s new book as editor and contributor explains the most significant post-WW II geopolitical crisis. Escalating it risks global conflict. Obama bears full responsibility. Washington stops at nothing to advance its imperium. Imagine the unthinkable. John Pilger fears Washington “threaten(s) to take the world to war.” “We in the west are backing neo-Nazis in a country where Ukrainian Nazis backed Hitler,” ...Read full article...

Justifying the Unjustifiable. How the UN Defines “Human Rights”

Navi Pillay is UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. She’s a reliable imperial tool. She betrays her mandate. She does so consistently. She disgraces the office she holds. She twists vital truths irresponsibly. She substitutes misinformation rubbish. She serves Western interests exclusively. She’s up to her old tricks again. Her new report is titled “Report on the human rights situation in Ukraine.” It’s infested with lies. It whitewashes what’s most important ...Read full article...

Are the U.S. and NATO Applying the “Syria Model” in Ukraine?

Neo-Nazi mobs in Odessa were involved, with the support of the Kiev regime, in a terrorist operation geared towards the killing of innocent civilians. There was nothing spontaneous or accidental in this diabolical and criminal undertaking which consisted in the mass murder of federalist activists inside the House of Trade Unions. The building was set on fire quite deliberately as part of a carefully planned paramilitary operation. People were ...Read full article...

War Propaganda and the Western Media

The New York Times has now admitted it used fake images regarding an alleged involvement of Russian soldiers in Eastern Ukraine.  Sorry, we made a mistake: The NYT’s retraction is presented as a technical error whereby the wrong pictures were mistakenly selected. “A packet of American briefing materials that was prepared for the Geneva meeting asserts that the photograph was taken in Russia. The same men are also shown ...Read full article...

The United States and NATO do not want Peace or Stability in Ukraine

The United States of America is well-known for its double speech and for holding a double standard. In their press conferences, American representatives do not hold up when condemning what they see as terrorism, abuse of power, oppression, violations to basic human rights and many other sins committed by other governments. But the Americans are champions of using a double standard that applies their criticism only if non-aligned governments ...Read full article...

An Answer to Obama’s Claims on Iraq’s ‘Successful’ Intervention

By Asad Ismi PolicyAlternatives.ca April 4, 2014 On the 11th anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq (launched in March 2003), it is important to emphasize the true motives for this attack and occupation and its horrendously destructive impact that continues today. Both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars stem from the needs of U.S. and Western capitalism for resources and markets. Capitalism has inflicted war on most of humanity ...Read full article...

NATO’s Rape of Yugoslavia

March 24, 1999 will go down in history as a day of infamy. US-led NATO raped Yugoslavia. Doing so was its second major combat operation. It was lawless aggression. No Security Council resolution authorized it. NATO’s Operation Allied Force lasted 78 days. Washington called it Operation Noble Anvil. Evil best describes it. On June 10, operations ended. From March 1991 through mid-June 1999, Balkan wars raged. Yugoslavia “balkanized” into ...Read full article...

Crimeans Choose Russia

March 16 was historic. It was important. Crimean authorities showed how real democracy works. They shamed America’s sham process. Monied interests control things. People have no say. Both major parties control a rigged process. They’re two sides of the same coin. Not a dime’s worth of difference separates them. Independent candidates are virtually shut out. Americans get the best democracy money can buy. Crimeans got the real thing. International ...Read full article...

Regime Change: First Ukraine, then Venezuela, then Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil . . . China?

Now that US Secretary of State John Kerry has issued an ultimatum to Russia, telling Putin that he has until Monday to follow Washington’s orders or else, hopefully everyone can see the repeat of the March of Folly that produced World War 1. In my last column, “Merkel Whores For Washington,” I mistakenly attributed to Khrushchev all transfers of Russian territory to Ukraine.  The first gifts of Russian territories to ...Read full article...

The U.S. has Installed a Neo-Nazi Government in Ukraine

According to the New York Times, “The United States and the European Union have embraced the revolution here as another flowering of democracy, a blow to authoritarianism and kleptocracy in the former Soviet space.” ( After Initial Triumph, Ukraine’s Leaders Face Battle for Credibility,  NYTimes.com, March 1, 2014, emphasis added) “Flowering Democracy, Revolution”?  The grim realities are otherwise. What is a stake is a US-EU-NATO sponsored coup d’Etat in ...Read full article...

Amnesty International accuses Israel of Exercising Brutal Violence against Palestinians

Amnesty International has accused Israel of implementing “unnecessary, arbitrary and brutal” violence against Palestinian civilians, a spiral in which “there is increasing abuse and bloodshed” and that has led to some “deliberate” deaths that could be considered war crimes. In a report published Thursday titled “Trigger Happy : The use of excessive force by Israel in the West Bank“, the organization claims that both the Army and the Israeli ...Read full article...

War on Whistleblowers – Britain Harasses Human Rights Lawyer Jesselyn Radack

Britain, America and Israel are likeminded. They’re rogue states. They’re axis of evil partners. They operate ruthlessly. They mock democratic values. They trash rule of law principles. They tolerate no one challenging their lawlessness. They vilify them. They imprison some. They do so to threaten others. Most often they harass. They do it no-holds-barred. The Government Accountability Project (GAP) calls itself  ”the nation’s leading whistleblower protection and advocacy organization.” Jesselyn Radack is ...Read full article...

US Intelligence Community Worldwide Threat Assessment

America has 16 known intelligence agencies. James Clapper is Director of National Intelligence (DNI). On January 29, he presented his annual worldwide threat assessment. He did so to Senate Select Committee on Intelligence members. He lied calling terrorism “persistent threats to US interests overseas.” None exist except ones America invents. It’s for strategic and geopolitical reasons. It justifies America’s fake war on terror. It’s state terror targets humanity. It’s not ...Read full article...

Introspections on Human Rights: The Effects of Overpopulation on Human Rights

Many past civilizations grew beyond their food supply or resources and collapsed. The people of Easter Island, the Mayas and the Mycenaean civilization provide compelling examples. The modern world is also on the brink of self-destruction and this time it will be global unless we act decisively at this eleventh hour. The approaching collapse is foretold by the depletion of natural resources and violent competition for them, environmental damage, ...Read full article...
