Survival or Extinction: Crisis of Leadership

Editor’s Note: This article is the 10th part of a series titled Survival or Extinction. A link to the previous nine articles is provided at the bottom. If you cannot wage wars of aggression on weaker neighbors because the international community will not tolerate it and the risks of assured mutual destruction are too great, you are forced to wage war on your own people’s reproductive systems to ensure ...Read full article...

The State Terrorism Factory

Governments can and have hidden themselves behind patsies and provocateurs to carry out terror attacks that justify the killing of millions. Furthermore, State-sponsored terrorism is now used to limit or completely erase civil liberties and constitutional rights. Most terrorism is State-sponsored. When this fact is discovered, the State has two options: One, it fabricates non-existent threats to justify its version of terrorism which includes invading and bombing people. Two, ...Read full article...

Iraq: Towards the Creation of a US Sponsored Islamist Caliphate

The Western media in chorus have described the unfolding conflict in Iraq as a “civil war” opposing the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham against the Armed forces of the Al-Maliki government. (Also referred to as Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)) The conflict is casually described as “sectarian warfare” between Radical Sunni and Shia without addressing “who is ...Read full article...

The Normandy Landing and World War II: The Lies Grow More Audacious

The Red Army chewed three million German troops; 7,500 artillery units, 19 panzer divisions with 3,000 tanks, and 2,500 aircraft rolled across Russia for 14 months, but America and Britain get all the credit. If there were any doubts that Western “leaders” live in a fantasy make-believe world constructed out of their own lies, the G-7 meeting and 70th anniversary celebration  of the Normandy landing dispelled the doubts.  The ...Read full article...

Ukraine and the “Politics of Anti-Semitism”

The West Upholds Neo-Nazi Repression of Ukraine’s Jewish Community In recent developments, following the distribution of fake antisemitic leaflets in Donesk, the Western media has intimated that the pro-Russian federalist movement is integrated by neo-Nazis involved in threats against the Jewish community of Eastern Ukraine.  The Eastern Ukraine protest movement is accused of “unleashing a neo-Nazi wave against local Jews”. Ironically, the Eastern Ukraine federalists –which include members of ...Read full article...

US State-Sponsored Terrorism

Washington notoriously points fingers the wrong way. It whitewashes its own crimes. Its latest Country Reports on Terrorism 2013 omits the world’s leading sponsor. More on it below. Terrorism is what they do, not us, it’s claimed. Reasons why imperial wars are waged are suppressed. Might justifies right. Nations are destroyed to free them. Lives and freedoms lost don’t matter. They’re small prices to pay. Mind manipulation turns truth ...Read full article...

What’s left of the Gulf of Mexico?

What is a body without a sharp mind but a numb lifeless mass? Although in appearance the Gulf of Mexico is still there, the fourth anniversary of the British Petroleum (BP) oil spill reveals a different reality. The Gulf as a whole has lost much of its engine of life. Perhaps it is fair to say it was stolen from it, and that no power structure in which citizens ...Read full article...

Privatization Is A Ramp For Corruption

Libertarian ideology favors privatization.  However, in practice privatization is usually very different in result than libertarian ideology postulates. Almost always, privatization becomes a way for well-connected private interests to loot both the public purse and the general welfare. Most privatizations, such as those that have occurred in France and UK during the neoliberal era, and in Greece today and Ukraine tomorrow, are lootings of public assets by politically-connected private ...Read full article...

Israeli State Terrorism

On Sunday, Israeli security forces stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound. It’s Islam’s third holiest site. Worshipers were attacked with stun grenades, rubber-coated steel bullet and pepper spray. Al-Aqsa Mosque director Sheikh Omar al-Kiswani said over 50 Israeli special forces stormed through the Moroccan and Chain Gates. They attacked worshipers. They “besieged” them. Half a dozen or more injuries were reported. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld lied. He claimed Israeli security ...Read full article...

Climate change caused by “dominant” Natural Causes, not Humans

BRAZIL – Back in 2008, a report titled Nature, Not Human Activity, Controls the Climate was published by the Non-governmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC). The report was an analysis of peer-reviewed papers and other published literature which purportedly studied climate change and how humanity contributed to the phenomenon. A total of 24 independent scientists participated in the review, which resulted in a 50 page document on the ...Read full article...

Fascist Police Attack Anti-Maidan Protesters in Eastern Ukraine

A previous article discussed Eastern Ukrainian resistance. Thousands in Kharvov, Donetsk, Dnepropetrovsk, Lugansk, Odessa, Nikolayev and elsewhere reject Kiev putschists. They want local autonomy. They want Crimean-style referendum authority to decide. They took over Donetsk’s Security Service building. They proclaimed a People’s Republic of Donetsk. Kharkov protesters took over the Regional State Administration. They occupied the putschist UNIAN news agency building. They proclaimed independence. Protesters flooded streets. It’s happening ...Read full article...

Twenty Years Ago, The US was Behind the Genocide

Rwanda as a US Proxy State in Central Africa The world  is currently commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide. The official story is that the genocide directed against the Tutsi population was triggered by the Interhamwe militia of the Hamyarimana government in the wake of plane crash which led to the death of president Habyarimana. The evidence suggests that the United States played a covert role in ...Read full article...

The Russians Aren’t Coming

It’s back to the future. It’s reminiscent of Cold War fearmongering. It claimed the Russians are coming. Norman Jewison’s 1966 film titled “The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming” portrayed a Soviet threat, albeit satirically. Today, outrageous headlines irresponsibly suggest Russian hordes threaten Ukraine. Truth is polar opposite. It doesn’t matter. On March 28, Ukraine’s propaganda news service Ukrinform headlined “Russia continues to redeploy troops to Ukrainian border.” It quoted ...Read full article...

Containing Russia

It’s longstanding US policy. In his March 18 address on Crimea, Putin was right saying: “(W)e have every reason to assume that the infamous policy of containment, led in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, continues today.” Western nations are “constantly trying to sweep us into a corner because we have an independent position, because we maintain it, and because we call things like they are and do not ...Read full article...

Russia Extends its Control over the Black Sea and Strategic Waterways

The decision of the people of Crimea to join the Russian Federation has strategic and geopolitical implications. The union of Crimea with Russia redefines the geopolitical chessboard in the Black Sea Basin.  It constitutes a major setback for US-NATO, whose longstanding objective was to integrate Ukraine into NATO with a view to undermining Russia and extending their military presence in the Black Sea basin. With the March 18, 2014 ...Read full article...
