Will the US Congress Now Save Obama’s Face?

As I observed in previous columns, Obama was pushed out onto the end of the limb by Israel and the neoconservatives. The UN, NATO, the British Parliament, and the rest of the world left the White House Fool there, out on the limb where Israel put him, to make war on Syria all alone. This proved to be beyond the Fool’s ability, but instead of crawling back off the ...Read full article...

A War on Syria, Prelude to a World War III Scenario?

“In order to facilitate the action of liberative (sic) forces, …a special effort should be made to eliminate certain key individuals. … be accomplished early in the course of the uprising and intervention, … Once a political decision has been reached to proceed with internal disturbances in Syria, CIA is prepared, and SIS (MI6) will attempt to mount minor sabotage and coup de main (sic) incidents within Syria, working ...Read full article...

Two Syrian rebel groups formed by the United States have engaged the troops of Bashar al-Assad’s regime, according to the French newspaper Le Figaro. This group would be composed by trained dissidents who were taken to Jordan first and who have crossed the border “probably commanded and supported by Jordanians and Israelis,” said the newspaper, which does not specify the “military sources” that confirm this new step in the ...Read full article...

Engineering Potential Disaster in Syria

The old saying goes be careful what you wish for. You may get more than you bargained for. Washington’s wars often don’t turn out as planned. Middle East, North African, Eurasian countries are embroiled in conflict. No end game looms. Unresolved conflicts continue. Escalation’s likely. US-sponsored death squads infest the region. They commit mass murder and destruction. Official silence followed Al Nusra militants massacring 450 Kurdish civilians. The mainstream ...Read full article...

The “Washington Consensus” for All Out War in Syria

Conflict drags on interminably. Dozens or more die daily. Syrian forces outmatch Western-backed death squad terrorists. They’re not rebels. They’re lawless invaders. They’re US proxy fighters. They’re imported from dozens of countries. They’re waging war against sovereign Syrian independence. Assad’s military outguns and outflanks Washington’s shock troops. Reinforcements keep coming. Libya 2.0 looks possible. Perhaps likely. Russia hopes for a September international peace conference. Originally a June one was ...Read full article...

High Level Opposition to Obama’s Escalating Syria Conflict

On May 15, the UN General Assembly adopted an anti-Assad resolution. It’s non-binding. It was Arab League-led. Washington co-sponsored it. It followed four others since 2011. It passed 107 – 12. Over 70 nations refused support. They endorse peace, not ...Read full article...

Fake WMD “Intelligence” and Orwellian Double-speak: Washington Is Insane

In the 21st century the two hundred year-old propaganda that the American people control their government has been completely shattered.  Both the Bush and Obama regimes have made it unmistakenly clear that the American people don’t even influence, much less control, the government.  As far as Washington is concerned, the people are nothing but chaff in the wind. Polls demonstrate that 65% of the US population opposes US intervention ...Read full article...

Open season on Syria: US makes public its military support for terrorists

After unproven accusations that the regime of Bashar al-Assad has used chemical weapons against the rebels, the Obama administration announced Thursday its involvement in the conflict in Syria to direct military assistance to the opposition.

European Union officially lifts weapons ban to arm Syrian rebels

The harshness of the war in Syria is about to get worse. The European Union has officially lifted the ban on the movement of weapons which will serve to further arm terrorist groups in Syria. Previous to this decision, the United States and France, among others, were already sending truck loads of weapons to Al-Qaeda linked groups in Syria through the proxy war partner Libya, but now the delivery ...Read full article...

Mission Creep: Toward Full Scale War against Syria

On May 20, Secretary of State John Kerry headed back to the Middle East. It’s his fourth regional visit since January. On May 21, he met Oman’s Sultan Qaboos. An air defense system/weapons sale, Syria, and related issues were discussed. On May 22, he met with foreign ministers of 11 so-called Friends of Syria countries. He did so in Amman. Opposition group representatives also attended. Among other issues, they ...Read full article...

The document condemns the escalation of violence by ...Read full article...

Iraq is on the way to a new sectarian war

Two hundreds dead in less than a week are many even to the level of violence to which we are accustomed to see in Iraq. The tone of the last outbreak also raises concerns that it is not only a rise but a leap that would eventually plunge the battered country into civil war that threatens to be the worst since the U.S. invasion of 2003. Iraq’s prime minister, ...Read full article...
