Syrians Besieged by Terrorists Risk Death

ISIS and other terrorist groups are killing Syrians they hold captive by appalling atrocities, exposure to freezing temperatures, denial of vital medical treatment, and starvation. Syrian armed forces so far haven’t freed trapped Fuaa and Kafrya residents in Idlib province mountainous areas. They may freeze to death from exposure or perish from denial of essential to life services. Syrians in Aleppo province Nubl and Al-Zahra areas are threatened the ...Read full article...

Sterile anti-ISIS UN Resolution Changes Nothing

Anti-ISIS lip service has been around a long time. Until Russia intervened in Syria against its forces and other terrorist groups on September 30, these elements made steady gains. Rhetorical Western and regional opposition did nothing to stop their advances. Resolutions declaring UN Member States’ unity in combating ISIS are one thing – commitment entirely another. Russia alone among major powers is combating its scourge. America, Britain, France, Germany, ...Read full article...

Samantha Power Loses her Mind at the UN

The US accused Russia of aiding the Islamic State by bombing their weapon depots and long-held positions in Syria. The Americans, who are losing their minds due to the Russian success in defeating ISIS, said that Russia’s actions strengthen the jihadists because the bombings are also targeting terrorist groups armed and trained by the United States and their allies in the region. “Since Russia began its attacks Syria’s map ...Read full article...

Putin Calls Out Washington

“We can no longer tolerate the state of affairs in the world.” President Vladimir Putin. Last Wednesday (28 Sept 2015) the world saw the difference between Russia and Washington. Putin’s approach is truth-based; Obama’s is vain boasts and lies, and Obama is running out of lies. By telling the truth at a time of universal deceit, Putin committed a revolutionary act. Referring to the slaughter, destruction, and chaos that ...Read full article...

Obama Deifies American Hegemony

Obama justifies Washington’s violence as ‘liberation from dictators’. Today is the 70th anniversary of the UN. It is not clear how much good the UN has done. Some UN Blue Helmet peacekeeping operations had limited success. But mainly Washington has used the UN for war, such as the Korean War and Washington’s Cold War against the Soviet Union. In our time Washington had UN tanks sent in against Bosnian ...Read full article...

US wants Enhanced UN Peacekeeping Operations Serving Its Interests

So-called Blue Helmets don’t operate as officially mandated – “help(ing) countries torn by conflict create conditions for sustainable peace.” Their deployments aren’t benevolent. They don’t restore order, maintain peace or provide for the needs of local populations. Nor do they build confidence, enforce power sharing agreements, provide electoral support, aid reconstruction, uphold the rule of law, or help efforts toward economic and social development. They’re imperial enforcers. They do ...Read full article...

ICC Investigating Israeli War Crimes: Hold the Cheers

Former ICC official Diana Chehade said the court won’t investigate cases being examined by other judicial authorities. Despite decades of well-documented Israeli crimes against Palestinians, its government and officials continue remaining immune from accountability. Expect nothing different this time. Months ahead of Palestine joining the International Criminal Court on April 1, an ICC prosecutor began a “preliminary examination” short of an official investigation into Israeli war crimes. It covered ...Read full article...

UN “Death Targets” Will Mean Reduced Healthcare for Elderly

Elderly people in the United Kingdom and potentially worldwide are likely to be treated as “second-class citizens” and even denied life-saving medical treatment under proposed “highly unethical” United Nations “death targets,” healthcare and aging experts declared in an open letter last week. The radical UN “Sustainable Development Goals,” which would put virtually every realm of human activity in the crosshairs, include, among other controversial provisions, proposed global “targets” for ...Read full article...

Another round of fake environmental concern

Transnational oil corporations are just one group of many that bear responsibility for the destruction of the environment, yet, they love to appear as if they are concerned about the health of the planet. Big Oil has been behind fake environmental movements for the past half a century, financing NGOs and philanthropic organizations that present themselves as defenders of the environment but that are nothing less than corporate creations ...Read full article...

Otra ronda de falsa preocupación ambiental

Corporaciones petroleras transnacionales son sólo un grupo de muchos que son responsables por la destrucción del medio ambiente, sin embargo, les encanta aparecer como si están preocupados por la salud del planeta. Las petroleras han estado detrás de los falsos movimientos ambientales por décadas financiando ONGs y organizaciones filantrópicas que se presentan como defensores del medio ambiente, pero cuya labor es mantener a la gente distraída mientras las corporaciones ...Read full article...

The Toll of War: 500,000 Yemenis flee their Country

On March 26 the Arab coalition began a campaign to bomb Yemen in a supposed effort to stop the Huthi and defend the Government of Abdrabbo Mansur Hadi. Mansur Hadi is is a puppet of Saudi Arabia, but the Arab coalition alleges that their action responds to the fact that he is the only one recognized by the international community. Regardless of the real agenda behind the US supported ...Read full article...

Saudis Bomb Russian Consulate in Yemen

During US-led NATO’s rape of Yugoslavia, China’s Belgrade embassy was willfully bombed. Claiming by mistake didn’t wash. The Pentagon included China’s embassy on its target list. Yemen is Obama’s war. Saudis and other regional states involved are US proxies. Months of planning preceded air and naval strikes. Yemeni targets were carefully chosen – among them Russia’s Aden consulate. Maybe its Sanaa embassy is next. Bombing its Aden consulate is ...Read full article...

Palestine joins International Criminal Court

Palestine officially became a member of the International Criminal Court on Wednesday in a similar manner in which other states that have ratified the Rome Statute, its founding document. The Court is a judicial body and is not authorized to recognize any state. However, the United Nations admitted Palestine back in in November 2012 as an obsever state, clearing the way for the ICC to allow Palestine to become ...Read full article...

UN denounces Israeli abuses against Detained Palestinian Children

500 children were killed and hundreds of thousands were found to be psychologically unstable after the last Israeli attack in Gaza. The UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Makarim Wibisono, called on Israel to “cease the abuse of lots of kids” that the Israeli regime holds in detention. “I am extremely concerned about the treatment given to the Palestinians, including children ...Read full article...

European Union condemns Israel for demolishing Palestinian Shelters

The representative at the office of the European Union in Jerusalem showed her disapproval for the demolition orders issued by the Israeli authorities of two temporary shelters in the West Bank that had been subsidized by the EU community. “We condemn the demolition of two shelters funded by the European Union in Area C as part of our response to the needs of affected communities according to humanitarian imperative,” ...Read full article...
