Looming US Ground Wars In Iraq And Syria

Current US direct and proxy wars aren't enough. Obama has more death and destruction in mind. Confronting Russia recklessly on Ukraine. Risking East/West confrontation. Possible nuclear war. Lunatics running things in Washington make the unthinkable possible. Obama's Iraq and Syria wars rage. US special forces and CIA operatives directly involved. On Thursday, Joint Chiefs Chairman General Martin Dempsey considered ...

Duplicitous US State Of Emergency With Iran

No just cause exists. Not now. Not earlier. It doesn't matter. US relations with Iran remain hostile. Key is its sovereign independence. Its regional Israeli rivalry. Its huge oil and gas reserves. Washington wants its dirty hands controlling them. Imperial powers operate this way. Washington most of all. Wanting unchallenged dominance. Waging resource wars. Permanent wars of aggression. Ravaging ...

Kiev War Crimes

Mounting evidence shows Kiev committed war horrendous war crimes in Southeastern Ukraine. Dirty war continues on non-combatant men, women and children. Residential neighborhoods are bombed and shelled. Banned chemical and other terror weapons are used.

Meanwhile, Whatever Happened To Al Qaeda??

Watching world events lately one cannot help but to wonder, whatever happened to the war in Afghanistan? Are U.S. soldiers supposedly still exchanging fire with Al Qaeda as (supposed) payback for 9/11? For a couple years I had been offering cash reward for anyone who can prove the war in Afghanistan to be a real ...

Heading For Ground War In Syria And Iraq

Believe nothing Obama says. His policies are polar opposite duplicitous rhetoric. Big Lies repeat one after another. His word isn't his bond. His pledge to avoid more Middle East ground war is meaningless. All signs suggest it's coming. More on this below. William Blum knows how US imperial works as well as anyone. He documented it over ...

Washington’s Bloated Defense Budget

Washington Post editors want America's bloated defense budget increased. So do some of its contributors. More on this below. America's business is war. Without end. Ravaging, destroying and pillaging one nation after another. Doing it for wealth, power and dominance. While vital homeland needs go begging. At a time America's only enemies are ones it invents. Annual congressional ...

Former CIA Director: “I Think We’re Looking At Kind Of A 30-Year War”

Americans should be braced for a long battle against the brutal terrorist group Islamic State that will test U.S. resolve — and the leadership of the commander in chief, says Leon Panetta, who headed the CIA and then the Pentagon as Al Qaeda was weakened and Osama bin Laden killed.

Argentina’s Christina Fernandez de Kirchner’s UN Address

Note: This article was intended for September 29. Illness intervened. It remains timely. As much now as then. Most UN addresses are bland. Few stand out. Fewer are remembered. Fewer still matter. Argentina's President de Kirchner shook things up and then some. Enough to get media scoundrels to bury her comments. They ignored her harsh criticism of US-led ...

Big Lies Launch Lawless Wars

Obama's Iraq war III is lawless. It has no legal authority. It constitutes cold, calculated, premeditated naked aggression. The same holds for his three-and-a-half year proxy war on Syria. It was planned long before March 2011 hostilities began. It's now elevated to direct US intervention. Last Tuesday, US warplanes bombed multiple Syrian targets. Precise ones aren't clear. Multiple civilian ...

Obama Launches Naked Aggression On Syria

It's no surprise. His intentions were clear for weeks. Naked aggression is longstanding US policy. In his September 10 address, he said Washington was prepared to "conduct a systematic campaign of airstrikes (against Islamic State terrorists) wherever they are." "That means I will not hesitate to take action against ISIL in Syria as well as Iraq." Last week, ...

Anti-Assad Extremists And Obama Plan Coordinated Attacks On Syria

Wendy Sherman is Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs. On September 16, she spoke at Georgetown University. She claimed Washington "cares about the Middle East because of (its) economic, political, and security interests…" "Its rich spiritual and ethnic traditions…" It's Israel's home and America's Gulf partners.

When War Erupts Patriots Will Be Accused Of Aiding “The Enemy”

In modern times, war is never what it seems. Mainstream historians preach endlessly about grand conflicts over territory, resources, political impasse, and revenge, but the cold hard reality is that all of these “motivations” are actually secondary, if they are relevant at all. As I and many analysts have covered in great detail in the ...

War Winds Near Gale Force

Candidate Obama promised peace in our time. He pledged to "bring America's longest war to a responsible end." He lied saying: "I will promise you this, that if we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do." "I will get our troops home. We will ...

Obama: If Assad Defends Against US Attack, US Will Attack

By: Brandon Turbeville, Activist Post - Only hours after delivering his ridiculous address to the American people regarding his strategy to combat an organization that is entirely the product of the United States and NATO and one that is still under complete control of these powers, Obama conducted a meeting with “foreign policy experts,” former ...
