The Choice Before Europe

Washington continues to drive Europe toward one or the other of the two most likely outcomes of the orchestrated conflict with Russia. Either Europe or some European Union member government will break from Washington over the issue of Russian sanctions, thereby forcing the EU off of the path of conflict with Russia, or Europe will be pushed into military conflict with Russia. In June the Russian sanctions expire unless ...Read full article...

A World Without War

Throughout this writer’s entire life, US direct and/or proxy wars raged – today more than ever in multiple theaters worldwide. Imagine living over 80 years without knowing a single day of peace. Without conflict, mass slaughter and destruction. Without valuing human life and welfare more than the spoils of war. America is a warrior state – more ruthless than any in history. It wages wars on an unprecedented scale, ...Read full article...

U.S. Congress Piling on Amendments to Anti-Iranian Nuclear Legislation

Democrat and Republican hardliners are toughening the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015 (INAR) Obama opposes it. A possible veto-proof majority looms. The legislation aims to undermine consummating a final deal by giving Congress vetting power over its terms. Israel and its Lobby want them tougher than any responsible government would accept – their way to kill an equitable deal altogether. Congress is on board to oblige. More ...Read full article...

A Yemeni’s Call for Help

No one understands the horrors of US imperial wars better than victims experiencing it. Overnight Tuesday, a Yemeni national emailed this call for help, saying: “Dear Mr Stephen, In the name of humanity and what you believe in, we call upon you to transfer our sufferings and make influential humanitarian INGOs, scholars, decision makers all over the world hear our children screams out of fears & listen to our ...Read full article...

Jerusalem on the Boil

London’s Guardian published what US major media won’t touch – a leaked EU report discussing a “vicious cycle of violence…increasingly threatening the viability of the two-state solution.” It blames collapsed peace talks, settlement construction in “sensitive” Jerusalem areas, Al-Aqsa Mosque provocations, home demolitions and dispossessing Palestinians from their land. The report is prepared annually by EU nations’ Jerusalem-based heads of mission. It suggests policy measures in light of Israeli ...Read full article...

Choice for Palestinians in Israeli Elections: None

On March 17, Israelis will choose among candidates from a dozen parties for 120 Knesset seats. Coalition governance will follow. No single party in Israeli history ever won a clear majority. Netanyahu’s Likud and Isaac Herzog/Tzipi Livni’s Zionist Union are virtually even in polls. One or the other will likely head new coalition governance when formed. Democracy is pure fantasy. So is an Israeli left. Fascists run things. Expect ...Read full article...

Nemtsov Wanted Color Revolution Change in Russia

Don’t mourn Nemtsov’s passing. He died rich. Likely murdered by a CIA false flag – a thinly veiled failed scheme to create anti-Putin sentiment. Nemsov’s popular support was virtually nil. At around 1%, he was a political nobody. He was worth more to Washington dead than alive. He was a corrupted pro-Western darling – a US-funded self-serving opportunist. A former top Boris Yeltsin government official. Part of his right-wing ...Read full article...

Washington Resurrecting Threat Of Nuclear War

Foreign Affairs is the publication of the elitist Council on Foreign Relations, a collection of former and current government officials, academics, and corporate and financial executives who regard themselves as the custodian and formulator of US foreign policy. The publication of the council carries the heavy weight of authority. One doesn’t expect to find humor in it, but I found myself roaring with laughter while reading an article in ...Read full article...

Obama’s New National Security Strategy: Ugly Business As Usual

Periodic National Security Strategy (NSS) documents reveal Washington’s dark side. Updated versions reflect old wine in new bottles. Including permanent wars on humanity. Against one invented enemy after another. Waging what the late Gore Vidal called “perpetual war for perpetual peace.” Making the world safe for monied interests. At the expense of popular ones. At the cost of millions of lives and appalling human misery. Endless US direct and ...Read full article...

Hague Court Rejects Genocide Accusations in Balkans War

The Court fails to point out, despite abundant proof, that genocide was committed by American-led NATO forces. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) rejected the accusations of genocide by Croatia and Serbia but stressed their responsibility in the deaths of civilians during the war in the Balkans. The president of the high court of the UN, Peter Tomka, read the judgment in both cases. First, he noted that “Serbia did ...Read full article...

Heading for War with Russia?

Ukraine is the epicenter of possible European war. Ongoing events should scare everyone. Kiev’s war on Donbas rages. Area freedom fighters continue routing its military. It’s desperate for more Western support.  Wanting greater numbers of US-led NATO boots on the ground than are already involved in fighting. Three recent regime false flags didn’t achieve Kiev’s objective. Perhaps something major is planned. A Kiev 9/11.  Big enough to embroil Europe ...Read full article...

It Is Time For Iran To Tell The West ‘Goodbye’

From all appearances, the Obama regime’s negotiations with Iran, overseen by Russia, were on the verge of ending the contrived nuclear issue. An end to the confrontation is unacceptable to the Zionist Israeli government and to their neocon agents in America. The Republicans, a political party owned lock, stock, and barrel by the Israel Lobby, hastily invited Netanyahu, the crazed ruler of both Israel and America, to quickly come ...Read full article...

Lunatics Run the Washington Asylum

Never in world history has one nation threatened humanity’s survival like America. Wars without end rage. Against invented enemies. New ones follow with disturbing regularity. Peace is pure fantasy. Obama wants congressional authorization for unconstrained war. Ignoring international law. Claiming it’s to fight IS. One of his many Big Lies. A companion article suggests Pentagon officials now direct Kiev’s war on Donbas. Besides supplying its military with heavy weapons ...Read full article...

The Charlie Hebdo Rally: Media Distortions and Hypocrisy in Paris

Sunday headlines said huge crowds massed in Paris. Protected by “unparalleled” security, according to AP.  Including thousands of police and military forces. Along the two-mile Boulevarde Voltaire route marchers took. An “unprecedented tribute,” said Reuters. Showing “unity and defiance,” claimed The New York Times. “(S)olidarity following three days of terrorist attacks that badly shook the nation,” said the Washington Post. “Paris displays defiance with huge rally,” headlined the Wall Street ...Read full article...

Charlie Hebdo and Tsarnaev’s Trial: Cui bono?

There are two ways to look at the alleged terrorist attack on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.  One is that in the English speaking world, or much of it, the satire would have been regarded as “hate speech,” and the satirists arrested.  But in France Muslims are excluded from the privileged category, took offense at the satire, and retaliated. Why would Muslims bother?  By now Muslims must be ...Read full article...
