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...

Paris Killings: Terrorism or False Flag?

Things aren’t always as they seem. When incidents like this happen, take nothing at face value. On Wednesday, three heavily armed masked men attacked the Paris-based satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo. Known for lampooning Islam, other religions and political figures. The incident took place in broad daylight. Killing 12. Wounding eight others. MSM reports didn’t surprise. Headlines screamed “terrorism.” BBC was typical. “Unprecedented terrorism,” it said. “France has never seen ...Read full article...

Torture in Israeli Prisons

Washington and Israel replicate each other’s worst crimes. A previous article discussed a UN Committee Against Torture report. Citing grave US civil and human rights abuses. Including systematic use of torture. Senate Intelligence Committee members confirmed it. In highly redacted form. Constituting appalling breaches of fundamental rule of law principles. At home and abroad. In US prisons. Global black sites. Out of sight and mind. Israel operates the same ...Read full article...

The Role of 9/11 in Justifying Torture and War

The Criminalization of the US State Apparatus. Senate Report on CIA Torture is a Whitewash The words “possible criminal actions” by CIA employees are used in the report. The terms unethical and immoral are mentioned. The criminality of those who ordered these actions at the highest levels of government, however, is not acknowledged. The actions directed against alleged jihadists are categorized as ineffective in the process of revealing intelligence. This in ...Read full article...

America: The Real Evil Empire

The United States is the largest terrorist nation in the planet, and its government has made sure to spread its evil far and wide. On March 8, 1983, Ronald Reagan coined the term. He did so addressing the National Association of Evangelicals. He called communism “the focus of evil in the modern world.” Don’t “ignore the facts of history and the aggressive impulses of an evil empire…and thereby remove ...Read full article...

Twenty-six Things About the Islamic State that Obama Does Not Want You to Know

The US led war against  the Islamic State is a big lie. Going after ” Islamic terrorists”, carrying out a worldwide pre-emptive war to “Protect the American Homeland” are used to justify a military agenda. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is a creation of US intelligence. Washington’s “Counter-terrorism Agenda” in Iraq and Syria consists in Supporting the Terrorists.   The incursion of the Islamic State (IS) brigades into ...Read full article...

Reinventing Vietnam War History

Pentagon commanders initiated it. A duplicitous 2015 50th anniversary commemoration. Honoring one of history’s greatest crimes. Turning truth on its head. Orwell explained saying “(h)e who controls the past control the future. He who controls the present controls the past.” A Pentagon web site headlines “The United State of America Vietnam War Commemoration.” Pentagon commanders glorify what demands condemnation. Providing “the American public with (so-called) historically accurate materials and ...Read full article...

We’re All Palestinians

The late Edward Said called “any serious public discussion” about Israeli policies the last taboo. It’s no exaggeration, he said. “Abortion, homosexuality, the death penalty, even the sacrosanct military budget can be discussed with some freedom.” “The extermination of native Americans can be admitted, the morality of Hiroshima attacked, the national flag publicly committed to the flames.” But (decades-long Israeli) oppression and maltreatment of the Palestinians is virtually unmentionable, ...Read full article...
