War

America Created and Supports the Islamic State

Obama’s so-called war to degrade and destroy it is a complete fabrication. Defeating it is simple. Stop recruiting, arming, funding, training and directing its elements. Stop using terrorists as US proxy foot soldiers. Wage peace, not war. Isolated on its own, it’ll wither over time and disappear, or be too impotent to rampage like now. Washington bears full responsibility for human floods fleeing war ravaged areas for safe havens ...Read full article...

It begins: US Drones Attack Syria’s Military

On September 11, a publication called Russian Spring reported US unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) attacks on Syrian military positions – “disguised as an airstrike on ISIS.” Syrian journalists learned details of what’s happening. Numerous civilians were killed. According to Syrian military sources, covert US drone strikes against its forces and positions happened before, part of Washington’s phony war on ISIS. On September 1, the Washington Post headlined “US launches ...Read full article...

US Phony War on ISIS

On September 10, 2014, Obama lied claiming his intent “to degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL” – adding “these terrorists could pose a growing threat beyond that region, including to the United States.” He willfully misled the US public saying he “ordered our military to take targeted action against ISIL to stop its advances…These strikes…helped save the lives of thousands of innocent men, women and ...Read full article...

Western Logic: War Is Peace

Stop Nato editor Rick Rozoff posts important “anti-war essays, poems, short stories and literary excerpts” by notable earlier figures from ancient Greece and Rome to modern times. Their consistent theme is fundamental opposition to war, its carnage and ruthless objectives. Some current postings call “(m)ilitary glory the most mean, the most cruel and contemptible thing under the sun!” (William Black 1881) “All wars arise for the sake of gaining ...Read full article...

Arabs turn their backs on War Refugees

Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Israel are not only arming and training terrorists to destroy the Middle East, but also banning Syrian, Palestinian and Libyan refugees from crossing their borders. The scandal surrounding the treatment of refugees and the lack of humanitarian aid programs for three and a half million living in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, its neighboring countries, and then to the ones that seek asylum in Europe has taken ...Read full article...

Obama’s Covert Drone War on Syria

Obama’s war on Syria is in its fifth year – naked aggression partnered with Israel, Britain, France, Canada and rogue regional states, using imported death squad foot soldiers against a sovereign independent country threatening no others. On September 1, the Washington Post headlined “US launches secret drone campaign to hunt Islamic State leaders in Syria.” False!! IS leaders and foot soldiers are US enlisted proxies – funded, armed, trained, ...Read full article...

US Now Occupying Yemen

Fars News said “(t)he US has invaded and occupied Yemen’s strategic Island of Socotra (part of the Yemeni archipelago) in the Indian Ocean and is now building up its biggest naval base there, media reports said.” More on this below. Obama’s war on Yemen using Saudi-led regional proxies is perhaps the region’s most destructive, underreported conflict – five months of genocidal war passing under the radar almost unnoticed. US ...Read full article...

The United States, NATO and Ukraine orchestrate war against Russia

Hostile actions by US officials show America seeks confrontation, not cooperation. In the 21st century wars are not fought with tanks and planes and they are not carried out by standing armies. The battlefield of the new millenium is an ideological one, where trojan horses masquerated as NGOs do the dirty work for regimes whose goal is to collapse sovereign nations from the inside out. In this new kind ...Read full article...

Infant mortality soars in the Gaza Strip after Israeli blockade

60% of newborns do not live past four weeks If infant mortality is one of the main indicators of the health of a population, the health situation in Gaza seems to have plummeted for the first time in half a century. UNRWA, the United Nations agency responsible for Palestinian refugees, has found that in 2013 twenty-two of every thousand babies died before they reached their first birthday, compared to ...Read full article...

Obama Heads for Full-Scale War on Syria

It’s been coming for a long time – facilitated by repeated Big Lies about Bashar al-Assad, ignoring his overwhelming public support, especially for defending Syria responsibly against imported Islamic State and other takfiri terrorists, enlisted by Washington as foot soldiers to topple his government. Obama upped the stakes a year ago by authorizing the bombing of Syrian infrastructure targets, a bandit diktat without Security Council or congressional authorization – ...Read full article...

Hiroshima and Nagasaki: Gratuitous Mass Murder

The atomic age began on August 6, 1945 in real time – after its July 16 pre-dawn open-air birth in successful Alamogordo, NM testing. At the time, perhaps prophetically General Thomas Farrell said “(w)e were reaching into the unknown, and we did not know what might come of it.” Called by some “the father of the atomic bomb,” Robert Oppenheimer quoted from the Bhagavad Gita saying: “Now I am ...Read full article...

Syria’s Refugee Crisis Just Got Worse

The price of imperial arrogance is horrendous human suffering, deprivation and death – millions of nameless, faceless people affected. US wars on humanity caused the gravest refugee crisis since WW II – millions displaced, mostly victims of imperial conflicts and chaos, suffering hugely, many perishing from deprivation, an appalling high crime too horrific to ignore. How do displaced people cope with limited access to nutritious food, at times any, ...Read full article...

Norman Podhoretz calls for mass murder of Iranians

Age hasn’t mellowed neocon lunatic Norman Podhoretz. At 85, he’s as outrageously over-the-top as ever. He urges mass murdering Iranians in a Wall Street Journal op-ed no respectable editors would touch. Journal editors featured it. Podhoretz urged the same criminal act numerous times before. The late Alex Cockburn called him an “apex neo-con.” He nicknamed him “Norman the Frother.” Journalist Bob Dreyfuss once called him a “wheezing neoconservative warhorse.” ...Read full article...
