NYT Editorial on Afghanistan Misses the Key Point

Perhaps US aggression in Afghanistan, along with destroying the cradle of civilization in Iraq, most stand as modern examples of the nation’s depravity. Destroying Iraq began with the Carter administration instigating the 1980s Iran/Iraq War, followed by the 1991 Gulf War, years of genocidal sanctions, then Bush/Cheney’s war – continued by Obama and Trump. Begun […]

Uninvited US Special Forces in the Philippines

Washington claiming they’re aiding the Philippine military combat ISIS in the southern city of Marawi belies US support for the terror group – its fighters serving its imperial interests. What’s going on? Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said his government requested no US military aid. He “never approached America,” for help, he stressed. He didn’t know […]

Expanded Anti-Trump Witch-Hunt

(image: Drew Angerer/Getty Images) Sacked former FBI director Comey said he (unethically and maybe illegally) leaked information about his private conversations with Trump so a special prosecutor would be appointed to investigate possible ties between his team and Russia – besides what Congress does separately. Special counsel (former FBI director) Robert Mueller expanded the investigation, […]

The Russian US Election Hacking Big Lie Got Bigger

[image: Global Research]According to  Bloomberg News, “Russian Cyber Hacks on (the) US electoral system (are) far greater than previously known.” A Big Lie – utter rubbish! The CIA, and likely NSA and FBI, can cyberattack targets anywhere, making it appear to have originated elsewhere – outside America from any other designated country. Despite months of […]

America’s Forever War Strategy

America is unique among history’s warrior states – prioritizing endless wars, not ending them to achieve a new era of peace and stability. The notion is anathema to the nation’s military, industrial, and scoundrel media establishment. Wars are waged for power and profits, no other reasons. All post-WW II US wars were and continue to […]

Gaddafi’s Son Freed

(image: Getty) Saif al-Islam Gaddafi was part of his father’s inner circle – serving in a diplomatic and public relations capacity. He held no official government position. Mentioned as a possible successor to his father, he rejected the notion. US-led NATO raped and destroyed Libya, transforming Africa’s most developed nation into a lawless cauldron of […]

Persian Gulf Feud

Riyadh accusing Qatar of supporting terrorism ignores the pernicious regional infestation of Saudi-supported extremist Wahhabism, the ideology connected to ISIS and likeminded groups. Both countries support regional terrorist groups, both US allies, despite mixed messages from Washington on Qatar. Secretary of State Tillerson called for “no further escalation by the parties in the region, (urging) […]

Trump’s UK Visit on Hold

(image: Getty) It may be cancelled altogether. Reportedly he told Prime Minister Theresa May he won’t come until Brits support him – highly unlikely any time ahead. He doesn’t want to visit London if large-scale protests are planned during his visit. Days after his inauguration, in response to May revealing he accepted Queen Elizabeth’s invitation […]
