Avaaz Spreads Media Disinformation

Avaaz, which presents itself as an alternative media and an independent voice is part of a corporate public relations campaign. Avaaz will report on civilian casualties in Syria without mentioning the influx of US-Saudi sponsored terrorists. Who is behind the atrocities in Syria? Avaaz will casually blame the government of Bashar Al Assad for killing civilians.  It will accuse the government of using chemical weapons when the evidence amply ...Read full article...

The Third Battle of Fallujah

Iraq today is a grim reflection of America’s ruthless imperial agenda. It includes mass slaughter, destruction, devastation, deprivation, human misery and unending violence. On August 31, 2010, Obama displayed criminal contempt. He’s done it many times. He declared an end to America’s combat mission in Iraq, saying: “Through this remarkable chapter in the history of the United States and Iraq, we have met our responsibility.” Ignored was America’s genocidal ...Read full article...

Making the World Safe for War Profiteers

Adam Smith said governments are “instituted for the defense of the rich against the poor.” Wars are waged to make them richer. Howard Zinn called war “terrorism magnified a hundred times.” Make it many thousands of times. Michael Parenti said “the best way to win a Nobel Peace Prize (is) to wage war or support those who wage (it) instead of peace.” In his book titled “The Face of ...Read full article...

IMF Sponsored “Democracy” in The Ukraine

He’s no peacemaker. He never was throughout 30 years in state and federal government service. He’s one of America’s privileged. He’s super-rich. His record shows exclusive support for wealth and power. He spurns popular interests. He’s been conducting Middle East shuttle diplomacy for months. He’s Israel’s man at State. He’s no honest broker. He never was. He’s not now. His dirty hands are manipulating dead on arrival Israeli/Palestinian peace ...Read full article...

Defensive Measures? China’s Controversial Air Defense Identification Zone

Beijing says the jets flew into the air defense identification zone to strengthen monitoring on targets in the area. China’s air force has described the mission as a defensive measure in line with international law. Beijing says the country’s air force will remain on high alert and take measures to deal with all air threats to protect national security. Two unarmed U-S bombers recently flew through the area. The ...Read full article...

Iran Deal in Geneva: Hold the Cheers

A previous article asked if it matters? Longstanding hardline US/Israeli policy won’t change. Sanctions Iran most wants removed remain in place. Stiff new ones may follow later on. For now they’re postponed. America is duplicitous. It’s deals aren’t worth the paper they’re written on. Will this one be different? Don’t bet on it. Interpretations differ on what was agreed on. More on that below. Obama is no peacemaker. He’s ...Read full article...

US Atrocities and War Crimes Cover-Ups in Afghanistan

“Last spring, the remains of 10 missing Afghan villagers were dug up outside a US Special Forces base.” US drones murder Afghan civilian men, women and children. American grounds forces do it up close and personal. US inflicted death, torture and other atrocities reflect daily life. Ordinary Afghans suffer most. They struggle to survive. American aggression is one of history’s greatest crimes. War criminals remain unpunished. Accountability is denied. ...Read full article...

NATO-US-Turkey War Games Off the Syrian Coastline

According to Turkish press reports, Turkey’s High Command will be hosting NATO’S Invitex military exercise in the Eastern Mediterranean in a clear act of provocation directed against Syria. The Invitex-Eastern Mediterranean war games are scheduled from November 4 to 14. Deafening silence. Not a single Western media has reported on these war games. The official release by the TKS High Command suggests a war games scenario involving a regional ...Read full article...

Iraq Today: America’s Genocidal Legacy

America came to Iraq to stay. Contingents of US forces remain. America’s embassy cost over a billion dollars to build. It’s the world’s largest.  It’s inside Baghdad’s Green Zone. It includes 21 buildings. Extraordinary security measures protect them. They’re on 104 acres of land. It’s the equivalent of 80 football fields.  Democracy is verboten. So-called liberation is a convenient illusion. Iraq was ravaged and destroyed. Daily violence rages out-of-control. ...Read full article...

“Responsibility to Protect”: An Instrument of Aggression

Bogus Doctrine Designed to Undermine the Foundations of International Law “Responsibility to Protect” is a bogus doctrine designed to undermine the very foundations of international law. It is law rewritten for the powerful “The structures and laws that underlie the application of R2P exempt the Great Power enforcers from the laws and rules that they enforce on the lesser powers.” Both the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) and “Humanitarian Intervention” (HI) ...Read full article...

Lawless Drone Killings

Two UN reports highlight the problem. More on them below. Sixteen-year-old Malala Yousafzai is an activist for women’s education, a blogger, and Sakharov Prize winner. She’s a Pakistan National Youth Peace Prize recipient. She was a 2013 Nobel Peace Prize nominee. Desmond Tutu nominated her for the International Children’s Peace Prize. On October 16, Canada said it plans to grant her honorary citizenship. Obama invited her to the White ...Read full article...

US in Afghanistan: 12 Years of Illegal Occupation

The decade-long war waged by the US and its allies in Afghanistan does not seem to be coming to an end. With tremendous civilian casualties and a ruined economy and institutions, the justification for the war seems to be dubious and ill-considered. The war against Afghanistan was an act of illegal aggression by the United States and NATO despite its being presented as a response to 9/11, believes Michel ...Read full article...

Syria ravaged by US led Humanitarian War

Internal conflict began more than two years ago, even before the United States and its Arab allies showed their intention to completely destroy the country. But it has been the merciless war waged by US-supported terrorist rebels what has destroyed the livelihoods of millions of Syrians. War has its circumstances, including its own economy. Damascus, enclosed and fortified due to the occurrence of terrorist attacks, suffers domestic and international ...Read full article...

Israel’s Nuclear, Chemical and Biological Weapons Threaten World Peace

Syria threatens no one. It hasn’t used chemical weapons against insurgents or its own civilians. Claims otherwise are fabricated. In contrast, Israel is nuclear armed and dangerous. It maintains large chemical and biological weapons arsenals. More on that below. In 1986, Dimona nuclear technician/heroic whistleblower Mordechai Vananu revealed important documents, photos, and other scientific evidence. They proved Israel began producing atomic weapons since at least the 1960s. Years later, ...Read full article...

Assad Pledges Full Cooperation, Pentagon Plans Countdown to War?

Assad’s full cooperation isn’t good enough for Washington. Obama wants regime change.  On Thursday, Free Syrian Army head Selim Idriss rejected Russia’s peace initiative. World powers, he said, shouldn’t “be satisfied only by removing the chemical weapon, which is the tool of a crime, but judge the author of the crime before the International Criminal Court, who has clearly acknowledged possessing it and agreed to get rid of it.” ...Read full article...
