Towards the end of the Geneva negotiations

Washington and Moscow have managed to maintain their agreements on Syria after John Kerry assured his Russian opposite number that the weapons sent by the Pentagon to Al-Qaïda and Daesh in April had been delivered to honour an old programme which is now abandoned. We are moving towards the end of the Geneva negotiations, and the resumption of intra-Syrian discussions – they will include the Kurds, but not the ...Read full article...

Horrific Libyan Suffering Under US-Supported ISIS Rule

Washington helped ISIS establish a foothold in Sirte, now expanding to control more coastal territory. Most city residents able to get out fled after its fighters took over. In a new report titled “We Feel We Are Cursed: Life under ISIS in Sirte, Libya,” Human Rights Watch (HRW) said it’s “inflicting severe hardship on the local population by diverting food, medicine, fuel, and cash, along with homes it seized ...Read full article...

Provocative US-Led War Games

US war games increasingly take place near Russian and Chinese borders – reckless provocations risking direct confrontations. The latest ones are ongoing in Romania, days after Washington activated its offensive missile system in the country targeting Russia. In a May 12 ceremony, US-installed NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg ludicrously said the Alliance “is committed to Romania’s security” – despite it facing no threats. Stoltenberg claiming “missile threats from outside ...Read full article...

Contradictory US Foreign Policy

These days, US foreign policy is often contradictory, as we can see in Syria, where troops trained by the Pentagon are fighting troops trained by the CIA. And yet it remains perfectly coherent on two points – to divide Europe between the European Union on one side and Russia on the other – and to divide the Far East between the Association of Southeast Asian Nations on one side ...Read full article...

Somnolent Europe, Russia, and China

On September 19, 2000, going on 16 years ago, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard of the London Telegraph reported: “Declassified American government documents show that the US intelligence community ran a campaign in the Fifties and Sixties to build momentum for a united Europe. It funded and directed the European federalist movement. “The documents confirm suspicions voiced at the time that America was working aggressively behind the scenes to push Britain into a European ...Read full article...

Gitmo in Chicago Torture and Abuse

London’s Guardian published information gotten from its FOIA lawsuit, documented evidence of “how Chicago police used punches, baton blows and Tasers at (its) off-the-books (Homan Square) interrogation site” – largely terrorizing Blacks. Last year, it reported twice on the “abuse-laden ‘black site,’ “ much like what goes on at secret CIA torture prisons. Police abuse victims disappear into a nondescript warehouse several miles west of where I live downtown. ...Read full article...

Irreconcilable Differences Ahead of Syrian Peace Talks

US supported terrorist groups, representing the so-called opposition, have unacceptable preconditions going into talks this week. They want Assad out, puppet governance installed, and Syria partitioned into mini-states (John Kerry’s so-called Plan B) – advocating federalized local autonomy as a first step. During a Saturday press conference in Damascus, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem said his country’s delegation will participate in talks scheduled to begin Monday. It “will not ...Read full article...

Donald Trump Wins Big Across the United States

The real estate mogul will need to win Florida and Ohio to arrive in good shape to the Republican convention. Donald J. Trump ran the tables pretty much all over the country last night, with the obvious exceptions like Texas, where Ted Cruz had to win in order to stay relevant during the ongoing campaign. Mr. Trump has now accumulated a total of 285 delegates, or just over a ...Read full article...

Assad accepts Ceasefire but will continue fighting ISIS

The Syrian government announced today that it accepts the “cessation of combat operations” in its territory after the US and Russia agreed yesterday the start of a ceasefire in Syria after midnight on 27 February. “The Arab Republic of Syria announced its acceptance of the cessation of combat operations,” said a senior source from the Syrian Foreign Ministry in a statement released by the official news agency, SANA. The ...Read full article...

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...

Are America and Britain Preparing for WW III?

Provocative US war games near Russia’s borders risk direct confrontation, madness if initiated. Is this why they’re held, preparing for the unthinkable, possible WW III? Neocons infesting Washington intend letting nothing deter their quest for unchallenged global dominance, an agenda reflecting pure evil. Britain is a longtime reliable US ally, both nations partnering in each other’s high crimes. Is David Cameron, complicit with Washington, preparing for escalated war, perhaps ...Read full article...

Phony US and EU Spying Limitations Deal

Longstanding NSA policy involves global spying, intensively on allies and adversaries, including dozens of foreign leaders, the Pope and other prominent world figures. They agency’s objective is get it all – for political and economic advantage, to be one up on foreign competitors, for information used advantageously in trade, geopolitical and military relations. Big Brother watches everyone. Domestic spying has nothing to do with protecting national security. Homeland terrorist ...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...

US Illegally Building Airbase in Northern Syria

Last month, Fars News reported Washington was illegally rebuilding and equipping a Hasakah province airbase in northern Syria, an area controlled by Kurdish People’s Defense Unit (YPG) fighters. The facility hasn’t been used since 2010. US warplanes already lawlessly bomb infrastructure and government targets on the pretext of combating ISIS. Russia uses Syria’s Latakia airfield legally, responding to Assad’s request for help against terrorists, causing havoc in ISIS and ...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...
