If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal

Western societies offer proof that voting is meaningless, or that when it really challenges power, power makes it meaningless.  Democracy the way it should be is pure fantasy in most countries, notably in America, Europe and Israel – neoliberal harshness triumphing over social justice. Redoubtable political/social activist Emma Goldman (1869 – 1940) once explained: “If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.” George Bernard Shaw once said “(d)emocracy is ...Read full article...

Russia opposed to a war between Iran and Israel

Although for the most part, observers are taking sides in the Russo-US conflict and hoping for the victory of their camp, Moscow is attempting to calm the atmosphere in the Middle East. It is therefore opposed to an attack on Israël by Iran, just as it was opposed to an Israëli operation against Iran in 2008. sraël fired nine missiles against two Syrian military bases in the night of ...Read full article...

Western powers are only “the best” in matters of falsehood

When they want to condemn a suspect, the Western powers accuse him of all sorts of crimes until they’re ready to pronounce sentence. Truth and Justice have no say in the matter, the only thing that counts is their power. Let’s take another look at the accusation of the use of chemical weapons in Syria. Thierry Meyssan reminds us that although that particular case is only a few years ...Read full article...

Israel uses US government to eliminate foes in the Middle East

At some point, the Russian government might tire of its humiliation, in which case Israel and the US aircraft will begin falling from the sky. As I wrote two weeks ago, the Syrian crisis is only in its beginning stages. The assault on Syrian military positions last night, apparently a US/Israeli operation, is evidence that the crisis continues to develop. There are four mutually reinforcing causes of the crisis: (1) ...Read full article...

BREAKING NEWS: Another Overnight Missile Attack on Syrian Military Bases

An earlier article said US-led overnight Friday aggression on Syrian targets wasn’t the end of it. It was likely prelude for further aggression to come, maybe all-out war ahead, risking confrontation between Russia and Washington. For America, Israel and their imperial allies, any pretext for escalating conflict will do or none at all. War against the Syrian Arab Republic continues raging with no end of it in sight. Syria ...Read full article...

Did Trump Lie about bombing of Chemical Weapons facilities?

Where are there thousands of dead people from the chemical gas released by Washington’s attack? Are the hospitals of the country over-filed with the injured and dying? More importantly, where is the so-called evidence to justify the bombings? Why hasn~t transparent Trump come forward with it? Because there is no evidence that Assad had nothing to do with it. Would it be possible that Trump bombed rebel facilities instead of ...Read full article...

The Coming Firestorm in Syria

The die is cast on Syria. A US-led attack on the country almost surely is coming. The only unknowns are when and its severity. Will it be similar to last April’s Shayrat airbase attack or is striking multiple Syrian military and perhaps other targets this time coming? The latter option seems most likely. Short of full-scale “shock and awe” war like Iraq 2003 and Libya 2011, nothing strategic can ...Read full article...

Where’s the Outrage and Accountability for Israeli Mass Murder?

Two Fridays in Gaza and days in between left 32 Palestinians dead so far, over 6,000 others injured, scores seriously, a third or more from live fire, including from exploding bullets causing serious internal wounds – no Israeli soldiers or civilians harmed. IDF viciousness was premeditated, the way its soldiers always operate against Palestinians and targeted countries. It’s no surprise in one of the world’s most militarized nations, a ...Read full article...

The Pentagon Trained Syria’s Al Qaeda “Rebels” in the Use of Chemical Weapons

Moscow has provided evidence that the U.S is trained Al Qaeda affiliated “militants groups” in the use of chemical weapons. A March 17, Russia’s Ministry of Defense  states the following: “We have reliable information at our disposal that US instructors have trained a number of militant groups in the vicinity of the town of At-Tanf, to stage provocations involving chemical warfare agents in southern Syria. …  The provocations will be used as a pretext ...Read full article...

Russia is the designated enemy of the military/security complex

Notice that the governments of the US, UK, France, and Germany did not require any evidence to decide that the Russian government used military-grade nerve gas to attack two people on an English park bench and a UK policeman. It makes no sense. There is no Russian motive. The motive lies in the West. It is the latest orchestration in the ongoing demonization of Russia. The demonization is a ...Read full article...

March is the best month to go to War

The US and its NATO allies, not to mention Israel, are on a war footing Is it a coincidence? In recent history, from the Vietnam war to the present, the month of March has been chosen by Pentagon and NATO military planners as the “best month” to go to war. With the exception of the War on Afghanistan (October 2001) and the 1990-91 Gulf War, all major US-NATO and ...Read full article...

Russian Army in Damascus

Washington has decided to relegate its project for the destruction of states and societies in the Greater Middle East. Over the last four years, all commentators have underlined the impossibility for Russia to deploy ground troops against the jihadists in Syria at the risk of reliving their defeat in Afghanistan. But what is true if Moscow confronts Washington by proxy is false if the two great powers agree not ...Read full article...

El general Mattis desmiente las “fake news” de Israel y la OTAN

Hace ya años que la prensa atlantista nos repite incansablemente que el presidente sirio “Assad-usa-armas-químicas-contra-su-propio-pueblo”. Pero, a la luz de lo que declaró el secretario de Defensa estadounidense James Mattis, todo eso son fake news. Al igual que las “armas de destrucción masiva” de Saddam Hussein, esta historia, que inunda las columnas de los periódicos desde hace 5 años, es pura propaganda de guerra. Esta declaración tendría que haber ocupado la primera plana en todos los diarios ...Read full article...

The illusion of the eradication of Daesh

The fall of the Caliphate and the scattering of the jihadists of Daesh open a new phase for recycling these troops. Perceived, according to each case, either as fanatical combatants or common psychopaths hiding behind an ideology, they are being courted by the States and multinationals who once employed them indirectly. Thierry Meyssan illustrates the setting for their second chance and issues a warning in face of the complacency ...Read full article...

US secrets, lies and confusion in the North of Syria

The announcements and denials of the Trump administration concerning military developments in the North of Syria reveal a heavy secret. Paradoxically, Turkey has come to the assistance of the United States to correct « the error » of their superior officers. The denial expressed on 17 January by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson concerning the declarations of the commander-in-chief of CentCom, General Joseph Votel, on 23 December, and of ...Read full article...
