The Killings Fields of Gaza

Colin Green CounterPunch January 8, 2014 Revelations from Israeli sources such as ‘Breaking the Silence’ and ‘Physicians for Human Rights-Israel’ that the Israeli assaults on Gaza in 2008/9 (Cast Lead) and 2012 (Pillars of Defence) were planned many months ahead pose many questions about the real motives for the seven year siege and these massive attacks on a helpless concentration of impoverished and imprisoned people.  Let us then pose ...Read full article...

America’s Democratic Dictatorship

By Dr. Robert P. Abele Global Research January 6, 2014 As must appear self-evident to both historians and astute observers by now, the United States, in its history, has had a rather facile and at times acrimonious relationship to the idea of domestic democracy (If this is not self-evident, see Noam Chomsky, Hegemony or Survival, along with Failed States. For a specific analysis of this observation applied to the ...Read full article...

Washington’s Dirty Game in Ukraine

Weeks of Ukraine street protests continue. Washington’s dirty hands are involved. They’re manipulating things disruptively. Imperial ruthlessness operates this way. International law is clear and unequivocal. Meddling in the internal affairs of other countries is illegal. Doing so is longstanding US policy. It’s to eliminate independent sovereign states. It’s about replacing them with pro-Western vassal ones. It’s about weakening major rivals. It aims to eliminate them altogether if possible. ...Read full article...

Washington’s New Islamic Front: Expanded U.S. Support to Al Qaeda Rebels in Syria

From the outset, the Western military alliance has (covertly) supported the terrorists with a view to destabilizing Syria as a nation state. Lest we forget, Al Qaeda is a creation of the CIA.  The US, NATO, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar have channeled most of their support to the Al Qaeda brigades, which are also integrated by Western Special Forces. British and French Special Forces have been actively ...Read full article...

Israel’s War on Palestinian Children

Israel is a serial human rights abuser. It’s one of the world’s worst. It’s war on Palestinian children alone reflects it. They’re systematically abused unjustly. Up to 700 are arrested annually. Most are lawlessly charged with stone-throwing. Children young as five are terrorized. They’re too young to know why. They’re abusively treated during arrests, transfers and interrogations. They’re denied fundamental rights. In 1991, Israel ratified the 1989 UN Convention ...Read full article...

The Israeli Invasion and Gaza’s Offshore Gas Fields

The military invasion of the Gaza Strip by Israeli Forces bears a direct relation to the control and ownership of strategic offshore gas reserves.  This is a war of conquest. Discovered in 2000, there are extensive gas reserves off the Gaza coastline.  British Gas (BG Group) and its partner, the Athens based Consolidated Contractors International Company (CCC) owned by Lebanon’s Sabbagh and Koury families, were granted oil ...Read full article...

Massive Pentagon Waste, Fraud and Grand Theft

teveLongstanding Pentagon operations reflect a black hole of unaccountability. Reuters published a two-part report. In July, it discussed the Defense Department’s “payroll quagmire.” It’s bureaucracy is stifling. It’s “unyielding,” said Reuters. Active duty and retired military personal are routinely cheated. Pay errors are widespread. Correcting “or just explaining them can test even the most persistent soldiers.” Weeks or months pass without resolution. Some personnel are cheated on pay. Others ...Read full article...

British Intelligence Operation to Kidnap Snowden?

Wayne Madsen Global Research 18 November 2013 Number One MI-6 Officer Working Undercover in Moscow Embassy Britain’s spy-infested embassy in Moscow has taken the lead among the «FIVE EYES» signals intelligence allies to locate the whereabouts of National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden in Russia.

Psychiatric Drugs, Cyberspace and “Digital Indoctrination”

Greg Guma Global Research 11 November 2013 Brain-altering drugs and digital “indoctrination” pose a potential threat not only to the stability of many individuals but of society itself. At least 10 percent of all Americans over six-years-old are on antidepressants. That’s more than 35 million people, double the number from less than two decades ago. Anti-psychotics have meanwhile eclipsed cholesterol treatments as the country’s fastest selling and most profitable ...Read full article...

Is There an Alternative to Plundering the Earth?

Is there an alternative to making war? Is there an alternative to destroying the planet? No one asks these questions because they seem absurd. Yet, no one can escape them either. Until the onslaught of the global economic crisis, the motto of so-called “neoliberalism” was TINA: “There Is No Alternative!” No alternative to “neoliberal globalization”? No alternative to the unfettered “free market” economy? What Is “Neoliberal Globalization”? Let us ...Read full article...

America’s Global Gulag: Challenging Wrongful Convictions

Many thousands of political prisoners languish in America’s global gulag. They do so unjustly. War on terror victims increased earlier numbers. Muslims are mostly affected. They’re wrongfully vilified. They’re persecuted for their faith and ethnicity. At times it’s for their activism, prominence and/or charity. They committed no crimes. They continue being hunted down, rounded up, detained indefinitely, isolated, denied all rights, convicted on bogus charges, and imprisoned longterm. Two ...Read full article...

Whitewashing Crime in Israel

Whitewashing it in high places doesn’t surprise. Israeli injustice is longstanding. It’s systemic. Avigdor Lieberman’s acquittal on serious charges is the latest example. Imagine. Palestinian children accused of stone throwing are detained, isolated, interrogated, intimidated, terrorized, fined and at times imprisoned. It’s standard practice whether or not they did anything. Lieberman reflects the worst of Israeli politics. He’s a former nightclub bouncer. He’s an ultranationalist extremist. He represents Israel’s ...Read full article...

The intensity and degree of penetration depends, as reflected in this material, on a classification of countries into different categories of interest. ...Read full article...

The Elites’ Strange Plot to Take Over the World

One World Government and “The Atlantic Union” The idea of a country seems pretty simple. I live in America, and I’m an American. She lives in France, and she is French. The Americans have a president who is their leader, the British have a prime minister, the French have their own president, and so forth. But the way political decision-making around security issues ricochets around the world, from Western ...Read full article...
