ICC Investigating Israeli War Crimes: Hold the Cheers

Former ICC official Diana Chehade said the court won’t investigate cases being examined by other judicial authorities.

The New World Order of Global Warfare

Washington Wants War on Donbass

John Kerry and Victoria Nuland are warriors, not peacemakers – neocons masquerading as diplomats. They deplore peace. They live by the sword. They foster violence and instability worldwide.

Discussion focused on Ukraine. Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin ...Read full article...

America and Islamic Terrorists: Partners Against Peace

America is a killing machine. It gives rogue state ruthlessness new meaning. It’s a lying machine. Truth is strictly verboten. Big Lies consistently substitute.

Saudi Terror-Bombing Massacres Dozens of Yemeni Schoolchildren

Saudi warplanes target US intelligence-designated sites. Civilian men, women and children are considered fair game. They suffer most in all wars. Deliberately targeting them is longstanding US policy – a shocking war crime by any standard. Tuesday was the latest example. Reports indicate Saudi warplanes struck a populated Ma’rib area. A local source said dozens of defenseless schoolchildren were massacred in cold blood. The exact number of dead and ...Read full article...
