The Neo-Cons simply can not be trusted, as they work for the Plutocrats, who desperately want to hold on to their power…
Iraq War (2003-2011)
Doctors group releases startling analysis of the death and destruction inflicted upon Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan from the “War on Terror” in Body Count
A recommendation: Sign the nuclear accord with the Islamic Republic of Iran. Announce it with great fanfare.
The UN consciously or unconsciously plays into the hands of the pro-Israeli pressure groups in Canada and only puts on an ugly show of duplicity in imposing a ruling against the Islamic Republic.
One hopes that Europe is beginning to part ways with the US direction on Russia – a direction that is leading to an abyss.
President Obama was joined by European leaders last weekend in trying to turn the G20 summit in Australia into a forum for baiting Russia, rather than dealing with the more onerous problem of a failing world economy.
Since 2002, the Pentagon has been saying to anyone who was bothered to listen that Endless War is the only deal in town – or the universe, for that matter. The lame duck might even fraternize about it with his Republican nemeses over the odd round of golf. What a wonderful (lame duck) world this would be.
Anyone who believes anything the US government says is gullible beyond the meaning of the word.
What is Washington’s strategy against the Islamic State? Is the Islamic State a creation of the United States?
Congressional elections this week saw $4 billion being poured into media campaigns – a record high. But even with this largess, the majority of American voters were underwhelmed by what was on offer.
Details of Kerry-Abdullah Secret Deal emerging…
Absent from the War against the Islamic State: Israel’s Status as an American Ally and the Example It Provides for U.S. Foreign Policy
The fact of the matter is that the Islamic State actually benefits Israel by causing problems…
The “exceptional” Americans in Washington like to refer to their foreign interventions as “nation building.” Like Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, among dozens of other unfortunate countries to have hosted American “nation builders” over the past century, the people of these wretched lands have experienced Washington’s reverse Midas Touch. Far from turning to gold, everything Washington touches brings death and destruction.
The movement of military equipment has not been seen by the OSCE from our border point [of observation]», said Picard during a press conference in the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don last week.
All in all, President Putin is right. The world has become a fearful, nervous place seemingly on a hair-trigger for over-reaction and irrational panic. This state of insecurity has, as Putin says, been brought on by years of lawless conduct by the US and its Western allies.
“The sobering up of the Ukrainians will be harsh and painful”
The activities of non-government organizations are not restricted in any way; their members have close ties with US embassy and consulate staff, as well as USAID workers. The human intelligence is used to discredit the policy of the Dilma Rousseff government. The lies about its ineffectiveness are spread around by all available means.
Prior to his departure from Moscow, Putin made some scathing references to the US policies toward Russia calling them “blackmail” and warning that the global “strategic stability” will be imperiled unless the West made amends.
US President Barack Obama hosted a top-level war council this past week in Washington with the military leaders from 21 countries in attendance – under the official remit of coordinating tactics to defeat the Islamic State extremist group in Syria and Iraq.
As it happens, Syria is hardly the first or most significant place Obama has used his power as Commander-in-Chief in ways that get people slaughtered, even though he knew better, primarily for political purposes.
The signs are that Iran’s Supreme Leader has authorized the Iranian negotiators to clinch a deal. The Iran Daily newspaper, which is identified with the Supreme leader’s office has showered fulsome praise on Rouhani’s policies seeking detente with the West.
Kiev’s president Petro Poroshenko, the former Candy King, is carrying a bit of excess bodyweight, but nevertheless his swiveling statements and actions of late show that his ability for pirouetting is as agile as the finest ballet dancer.
Who is to blame for the proliferation of extremist groups in Syria? The West often points a finger at Assad and his allies, but two secret US documents tell a different story.
Yes, there certainly has been «blatantly false reporting» in Ukraine – by Western mainstream news media, which have consistently failed to convey the extent of violence perpetrated by the Kiev regime against the Russian-speaking population in eastern Ukraine.
Washington intends to inflict “such damage to the economic and industrial infrastructure within Syria that any Syrian government after the fighting will be so weakened that it will be vulnerable to further attacks.”
It is an open question whether Russia will succeed in her goals. In theory, a successful Junta attack on Novorussia could force Russia to intervene. Likewise, there is always the possibility of yet another “false flag”, possibly a nuclear one. I think that the Russian policy is sound and the best realistically achievable under the current set of circumstances, but only time will tell.
The airwaves are still heaving with spin two days after US airstrikes against Syria
Obama’s presidency has come full circle by reinventing the neocon dogmas it once professed to reject. On the pretext of fighting the IS, which the US and its allies created in the first instance, what is unfolding is a massive neocon project to remold the Muslim Middle East to suit the US’ geopolitical objectives. Call it by whatever name, it is an imperial war – albeit with a Nobel as commander-in-chief.
“We have a very large number of people serving both in our Congress as well as bureaucrats within the government, who are more loyal to Israel than they are to the interest of the US” — Mike Harris
The question is this: are these shocking executions, with their highly stylized graphic videos, being used to manipulate public consent for Western military intervention in Syria?
