US Relocating ISIS Terrorists

In war theaters where ISIS operates, America supports the scourge it pretends to oppose, along with al-Nusra and other terrorist groups.

Western Media Disinformation on Mosul

A neocon/CIA-connected Washington Post report is one of numerous examples. It lied, claiming America’s defeat (sic) of ISIS in Mosul shows how it how it can succeed militarily in the Middle East. In numerous articles on Mosul, I discussed US aggression, Pentagon terror-bombing, indiscriminately massacring countless thousands of civilians, blasting Iraq’s second largest city to […]

Peace Not an Option for Washington

For Republican and Democrat administrations alike, peace is abhorrent – notably since the neoliberal 90s, especially post-9/11. Enemies don’t exist so they’re invented, Washington’s geopolitical strategy to justify unjustifiable naked aggression – unaccountable high crimes against peace in all instances. When the Soviet Union dissolved in 1991, Muslims replaced communists as America’s enemy of choice. […]

Faking Russian US Election Meddling

[image: nbcnews.com] The discredited canard should have been consigned to history’s dustbin long ago. Yet it persist, scoundrel media disinformation continuing to claim what never happened. No Russian or any other hacking occurred, no foreign interference of any kind in America’s 2016 election, or any others. The New York Times criticized Trump’s acceptance of Putin’s […]

Will America Attack North Korea?

(image: Zero Hedge) War on the Korean peninsula would be catastrophic if launched. Defense Secretary Mattis said it “would be probably the worst kind of fighting in most people’s lifetimes.” No precedent exists for trying to destroy a nation’s nuclear capability by military means. The possibility of nukes detonating on the Korean peninsula should deter […]
