Extensive Russian and Allied War Games in response to US-NATO

Barely reported by the Western media, Russia has launched a series of war games in Europe and the Far East together with several of its allies.  These war games are largely in response to NATO’s military buildup on Russia’s Western frontier, in Eastern Europe, The Baltic States and Scandinavia. They also coincide with Donald Trump’s decision to repeal the 1987 INF agreement signed between Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev. The Intermediate Nuclear Force Treaty (INF), ...Read full article...

All international problems are suspended, awaiting the US mid-term elections

The partisans of the old international order are gambling on a change of majority in Congress and a rapid destitution of President Trump. If the man in the White House holds fast, the protagonists of the war against Syria will have to admit defeat and move on to other battle fields. On the other hand, if Donald Trump should lose the elections, the war on Syria will immediately be ...Read full article...

The Trump administration and Iran

Like President Reagan, President Trump seems to be anti-Iranian. But perhaps this is only in appearance. While the former drew up a secret alliance with Imam Khomeiny, the latter may be dealing with ex-President Ahmadinejad in the same way. n 16 August 2018, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the creation of the « Iran Action Group » tasked with coordinating US policies after their withdrawal from the 5+1 ...Read full article...

What if Russia were declared a State sponsor of Terror?

Would such a declaration open the flood gates for a full military attack against Russia by the United States or its allies? Russophobic undemocratic Dems and likeminded Republicans want Pompeo to decide whether the State Department should designate Russia a state sponsor of terrorism. The idea is unlikely to gain majority support, but proposing it is another example of how low what passes for governance in Washington has sunk ...Read full article...

Israel Heads Toward Terror War on Gaza

Israel holds Gazans hostage under an illegal blockade since mid-2007 – unrelated to security issues, solely for political reasons.  The Netanyahu regime conducts cross-border incursions and terror-bombs the Strip at its discretion – naked aggression with impunity. The latest terror-bombing incidents came overnight into Saturday daylight hours, following another day of Israeli attacks on peaceful Great March of Return demonstrators. Multiple Strip targets were terror-bombed. The IDF said 60, ...Read full article...

Russia the World’s Dominant Military Power

Russia, not America, is the world’s dominant military superpower, a reality not going down well in Washington. In March, Putin explained Russia’s technological superiority to America and the West – its formidable weapons enough to give Washington pause about attacking the country. Moscow’s advanced weapons outmatch the Pentagon’s best. They include: • a 200-ton Sarmat ICBM able to successfully breach ABM defenses; • a low-flying stealth nuclear-powered cruise missile ...Read full article...

If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal

Western societies offer proof that voting is meaningless, or that when it really challenges power, power makes it meaningless.  Democracy the way it should be is pure fantasy in most countries, notably in America, Europe and Israel – neoliberal harshness triumphing over social justice. Redoubtable political/social activist Emma Goldman (1869 – 1940) once explained: “If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.” George Bernard Shaw once said “(d)emocracy is ...Read full article...

Russia opposed to a war between Iran and Israel

Although for the most part, observers are taking sides in the Russo-US conflict and hoping for the victory of their camp, Moscow is attempting to calm the atmosphere in the Middle East. It is therefore opposed to an attack on Israël by Iran, just as it was opposed to an Israëli operation against Iran in 2008. sraël fired nine missiles against two Syrian military bases in the night of ...Read full article...

Western powers are only “the best” in matters of falsehood

When they want to condemn a suspect, the Western powers accuse him of all sorts of crimes until they’re ready to pronounce sentence. Truth and Justice have no say in the matter, the only thing that counts is their power. Let’s take another look at the accusation of the use of chemical weapons in Syria. Thierry Meyssan reminds us that although that particular case is only a few years ...Read full article...

Israel uses US government to eliminate foes in the Middle East

At some point, the Russian government might tire of its humiliation, in which case Israel and the US aircraft will begin falling from the sky. As I wrote two weeks ago, the Syrian crisis is only in its beginning stages. The assault on Syrian military positions last night, apparently a US/Israeli operation, is evidence that the crisis continues to develop. There are four mutually reinforcing causes of the crisis: (1) ...Read full article...

BREAKING NEWS: Another Overnight Missile Attack on Syrian Military Bases

An earlier article said US-led overnight Friday aggression on Syrian targets wasn’t the end of it. It was likely prelude for further aggression to come, maybe all-out war ahead, risking confrontation between Russia and Washington. For America, Israel and their imperial allies, any pretext for escalating conflict will do or none at all. War against the Syrian Arab Republic continues raging with no end of it in sight. Syria ...Read full article...

Did Trump Lie about bombing of Chemical Weapons facilities?

Where are there thousands of dead people from the chemical gas released by Washington’s attack? Are the hospitals of the country over-filed with the injured and dying? More importantly, where is the so-called evidence to justify the bombings? Why hasn~t transparent Trump come forward with it? Because there is no evidence that Assad had nothing to do with it. Would it be possible that Trump bombed rebel facilities instead of ...Read full article...

The Coming Firestorm in Syria

The die is cast on Syria. A US-led attack on the country almost surely is coming. The only unknowns are when and its severity. Will it be similar to last April’s Shayrat airbase attack or is striking multiple Syrian military and perhaps other targets this time coming? The latter option seems most likely. Short of full-scale “shock and awe” war like Iraq 2003 and Libya 2011, nothing strategic can ...Read full article...

Where’s the Outrage and Accountability for Israeli Mass Murder?

Two Fridays in Gaza and days in between left 32 Palestinians dead so far, over 6,000 others injured, scores seriously, a third or more from live fire, including from exploding bullets causing serious internal wounds – no Israeli soldiers or civilians harmed. IDF viciousness was premeditated, the way its soldiers always operate against Palestinians and targeted countries. It’s no surprise in one of the world’s most militarized nations, a ...Read full article...

The Pentagon Trained Syria’s Al Qaeda “Rebels” in the Use of Chemical Weapons

Moscow has provided evidence that the U.S is trained Al Qaeda affiliated “militants groups” in the use of chemical weapons. A March 17, Russia’s Ministry of Defense  states the following: “We have reliable information at our disposal that US instructors have trained a number of militant groups in the vicinity of the town of At-Tanf, to stage provocations involving chemical warfare agents in southern Syria. …  The provocations will be used as a pretext ...Read full article...
