New US Syria Strategy Aims to Con Russia

Months of Russian air power and rejuvenated Syrian ground forces making significant gains against ISIS and other terrorist groups got Washington to change strategy. Wanting to avoid direct confrontation with Russia, it relies on deception – conning Moscow to cease bombing terrorist infested northern Syrian areas where US special forces are deployed, claiming cutthroat killers they’re supporting are “moderates.” Moscow knows none exist. Agreeing to the Pentagon’s request directly ...Read full article...

Presstitutes At Work

This morning I was stuck in front of a Fox “News” broadcast for a short period and then with a NPR news program. It was enough to convince me that Nazi propaganda during Hitler’s Third Reich was very mild compared to the constant stream of dangerous lies that are pumped out constantly by the American media. The New York Times, Washington Post, and a couple of think-tank types were ...Read full article...

Futile Diplomacy to Resolve Syria’s Conflict

John Kerry admitted as much, saying conflict won’t end as long as Assad remains in power. Washington wants war, not peace. Russia’s forthright diplomatic efforts continue tirelessly, committed to resolve Syria’s conflict responsibly – a futile effort without a serious US peace partner. Washington wants war, not peace. At the Munich Security Conference, John Kerry admitted as much, saying conflict won’t end as long as Assad remains in power – ...Read full article...

Desperate Hillary Clinton attacks Sanders’ Character in Milwaukee Debate

The victories obtained by non-establishment candidates in the New Hampshire primary Tuesday caused shockwaves to rattle the cores of both the Republican and Democratic parties in the United States. The results were even more shocking in the Democratic side, where Hillary’s attack dogs have come out to bite her opponent, Bernie Sanders. The Hillary crowd has gone so far as to say that, despite losing by more than 20 ...Read full article...

Republicans and Democrats Reject the Status Quo

New Hampshire does not decide the general election, but it is one of the states that signals who will be in the run up until november. Another key fact that the primaries have shown is that both Republicans and Democrats have said enough is enough to the governing establishment. People from both parties have said that they do not want to keep things as they are. They have to ...Read full article...

US Establishment Preferred Presidential Aspirants on Shaky Ground

Months earlier, before campaign season got in full swing, odds favored a Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush November contest. Things changed dramatically. After topping Sanders by more than two-to-one in earlier polls, both candidates are now virtually tied, momentum in his favor, notably as more disturbing facts about Hillary’s dark side become public knowledge. An accompanying article said forget about gender and calls for finally electing a woman president. She’s ...Read full article...

The Urgency of Opposing a Hillary Clinton Presidency

Among an array of deplorable aspirants, she stands out as the most dangerous and loathsome, an anti-populist Wall Street tool, a war profiteer’s dream, shamelessly indifferent to human suffering, a ruthless rogue actor, a menace threatening world peace. Ignore her gender and calls for finally electing a woman US president. Look at the enormous harm the first Black one caused at home and abroad, Muslims and people of color ...Read full article...

Netanyahu Persecutes Deputies who visit Palestinian Families

According to the Israeli leader, it is a sign of hatred when deputies visit families of victims of Israeli brutality. Israel is not only one of the strongest abusers of human rights in  the Middle East, but also the greatest inciter of hatred against Arabs and those who show their support for endangered populations. Saying that Israel constantly brutalizes Palestinians would be repetitive, which is why we omit that ...Read full article...

This is how Corporations Win US Elections

For Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, outside groups have raised more money than their own organizations. The use of SuperPACs to finance a political campaign is not new. What is new is their heavier influence in sustaining any political campaign without having to explain where the money comes from. The rules to finance a political campaign changed six years ago but it is only now that the ...Read full article...

Hacia la paz en Siria, sin la Oposición Armada

Las negociaciones de Ginebra 3 por la paz en Siria acaban de comenzar luego de que la oposición prosaudita finalmente aceptara plegarse a los llamados del Departamento de Estado para que participara. Thierry Meyssan observa que, si bien Washington y Moscú contaban en diciembre con una paz rápida y adoptaban la resolución 2254 en el Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU, Estados Unidos tiene ahora la profunda convicción de que los líderes seleccionados por Riad son incapaces de ejercer el poder. Las negociaciones ...Read full article...

US Wants Russia Transformed into a US Vassal State

Washington tolerates no governments it doesn’t control, wanting pro-Western vassal states replacing sovereign independent ones – notably Russia and China, both countries targeted for regime change. Neocon/super-hawk former US Deputy Defense Secretary and World Bank president Paul Wolfowitz earlier explained Washington’s “first objective is prevent(ing) the re-emergence of (rival states), either on the territory of the former Soviet Union or elsewhere.” America seeks unipolar/New World Order dominance, pursuing a ...Read full article...

Hillary Clinton: A Deplorable Choice for President

Among an array of deplorable Republican and Democrat presidential aspirants, Clinton stands out as the most dangerous and sinister of the bunch – an unrequited war goddess, risking nuclear confrontation if elected. Her record in office and since leaving government shows support for imperial lawlessness, indifference to human suffering, and addiction to self-aggrandizement, along with using her high office to accumulate great wealth. Clinton Foundation donors have direct ties ...Read full article...

Where does Israel stand on fighting ISIS?

“If I had to choose between Iran and the Islamic State, I’d choose the jihadists,” said the Israeli Defense Minister. The Israeli position on the fight against jihadist extremism is clear. Moshe Yaalon, Israel’s Defense Minister, insisted that the Islamic Republic of Iran poses a greater threat to its security than the Sunni radicals, and therefore, Israel would prefer to ally with the Islamic State before seeking a solution ...Read full article...

Syrian Peace Talks Jeopardized

Disputes over who’ll represent Assad’s opposition may delay or derail talks before their scheduled January 25 beginning. Under the best of circumstances, they have virtually no chance of succeeding. Washington wants war, not peace. It wants Western-controlled puppet governance replacing Syrian sovereign independence. Assad intends serving as long as he retains popular support. International law supports him. The New York Times said talks may not begin as scheduled next ...Read full article...

US, Britain and France Intend Undermining Syrian Peace Talks

They want war, not peace, Assad replaced by a pro-Western puppet, Syrian sovereignty destroyed, the country balkanized for easier control. Iran’s turn awaits, despite last year’s nuclear deal. US-led Western rogue states want total control over vast regional resources, huge oil and gas deposits, giving Big Oil free reign to exploit them. Russia’s deputy UN envoy Vladimir Safronkov blasted what he called an “unscrupulous (Western) tactic,” saying: “It looks ...Read full article...
