Taibbi: New Drone Strikes Underscore How Much Power We Give Trump

While all of us were preparing for Thanksgiving dinner, the United States was busy preparing an attack on the Yemeni province of Badhya.

Residents later reported that the region spent much of the day under attack from Saudi jets and American drones, which hovered overhead and intermittently fired missiles from above.

The attacks were described as a success in most Western newspapers. The Daily Mail in London highlighted the fact that "10 Al-Qaeda Suspects" were killed in the attacks, as confirmed by government officials.

One minority-ish report by Gulf News Yemen, one of the few on-the-ground sources that covers such attacks, had details of the killings. Quoting an on-the-ground activist, it added:

"The recent US drone strikes have also killed five civilians, displaced residents and caused panic in the two areas."

Drone strikes have intensified since Donald Trump assumed the presidency.

Parents now spend twice as much time with their children as 50 years ago

PARENTS these days spend a lot more time with their offspring, or at least middle-class parents do. One analysis of 11 rich countries estimates that the average mother spent 54 minutes a day caring for children in 1965 but 104 minutes in 2012. Men do less than women, but far more than men in the past: their child-caring time has jumped from 16 minutes a day to 59.

Trump on Missile Launch: We'll Take Care of It

President Trump’s surprise Tuesday press statement, mere hours after North Korea launched its latest test ICBM, had surprisingly little to do with North Korea, with President Trump prefacing his comments with an assurance that he’ll “take care of it.”

This is unusual, as Trump has tended to offer very bellicose screeds at every sign of North Korean activity, and talks of “totally destroying” the reclusive nation militarily. Trump followed this up with Twitter statements condemning illegal immigration and presenting North Korea’s test as proof it’s more important than ever to fund his agenda.

North Korea’s new ICBM is capable of striking Washington, expert warns

There was something different about today’s ballistic missile test: according to a preliminary analysis from the Pentagon, the rocket was an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile, which was reported to have flown for 50 minutes, on a very high trajectory reaching 4,500 km above the earth (more than ten times higher than the orbit of Nasa’s International Space Station) before coming down nearly 1,000 km from the launch site off the west coast of Japan.

The American Dream Has Been Irreparably Broken

U.S. Senator James W. Fulbright (1905-1995) The Arrogance of Power, 1966.

Despite having met and befriended some fine Americans over the years, my long-held opinion of the U.S. in particular and the American people in general — an opinion confirmed after I read Senator Fulbright’s book in the late 60s — has not only remained doggedly unchanged, but has in fact become more entrenched and pessimistic. Such entrenched pessimism stems from the inescapable truth that regardless of an illusory concept of the “American exceptionalism” that arrogantly presumes to present itself as the “superpower” champion of democracy and human rights, the U.S. is in reality the world’s biggest violator of the very ideals it so hypocritically claims to champion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sadly, post World War II, the "American Dream" has morphed into the American nightmare, with jobs offshored/outsourced, and the former American middle class forced into a downward spiral of diminishng returns, increasing debt, and decreasing possibilites of escape from their economic circumstances.

The growth of the bloated US military around the world, and it's position as "Enforcer" of US government rights to expropriate resources globally to which it has no moral right, is absolutely in inverse proportion to the economic status of American citizens here at home.

Finally, our "alleged representatives" in Washington are only the property of the corporations which own them, and do not at all represent the concerns and wishes of the people who put them in office.

Can’t You See War on the Horizon?

According to news reports in the British press, Russian President Vladimir Putin has instructed Russia’s industries to prepare themselves to be able to make a quick switch to war production.

Clearly, the Russian government would not make such an announcement unless it was convinced that the prospect of war with the West was real. For some time I have emphasized in my columns that the consequence of years of hostile actions taken by Washington and its European vassals against Russia was leading to war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The war I see coming is bigger than just between the US government and Russia.

The demonization of Russia, North Korea, and Iran continues apace.

And note, of late, an attempted "linkage" between North Korea and Iran, regarding North Korea's weapons program.

Demonization, coupled with sanctions, are nearly always a prelude to war.

I hope to hell that I am wrong, but I see a world war coming to this planet, within this next year, and one which will bring back the draft, in this country, of both our young men and our young women.

Is the Islamic State a “Geopolitical Tool”? US Looks to Southeast Asia to Unleash Its ISIS-Daesh Hordes

Western think tanks have been increasingly busy cultivating a narrative to explain the sudden and spreading presence of militants linked or fighting under the banner of the self-proclaimed “Islamic State” (ISIS) across Southeast Asia.

This narrative – these think tanks would have audiences believe – entails militants fleeing Syria and Iraq, and entrenching themselves amid supposedly sectarian conflicts in Southeast Asia. The think tanks conveniently never mention how tens of thousands of militants are funding the logistical feat required to move them to Southeast Asia or sustain their militant operations in the region once they arrive.

Among these think tanks is the so-called International Crisis Group (ICG). In its report, “Jihadism in southern Thailand – A phantom menace,” it claims:

The decline of the Islamic State (ISIS) and the advent of ISIS-linked violence in South East Asia evince the possibility of a new era of transnational jihadist terrorism in the region.

The Catch-22 that keeps many vets from getting help

Joseph Heller would have had a field day describing what happens to too many American soldiers these days. While on active duty in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, they begin suffering mental health problems -- often they reflect the early onset of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Because of their illness, they act out, get in trouble with their chain of command, and are forced to leave with less than honorable discharges.

But when they return home, their less than honorable discharges prevent them from being considered veterans, so they can't get help from the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to address their PTSD.
It's a classic Catch-22.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please share this article with anyone even thinking about enlisting.

And please remind them; all wars are economic in nature, and are not fought for honor, glory, or "The American Way of Life", whatever that is.

Wars are all about resources, and their acquisition, period, end of discussion.

Iraq was all about the oil, and insuring that it was only sold in US dollars.

Afghanistan was, and is, about pipelines, natural resources, and the opium.

The coming war against Iran is, again, about the oil, and making sure it is sold in US dollars.

After Cheerleading for Invasion of Iraq, Tom Friedman Glorifies Saudi Arabia’s War Criminal

Thomas [Tom] Friedman, the supposedly liberal columnist of the New York Times and the "imperial messenger" of the US establishment, needs no introduction.

This is the same man who was the leading cheerleader for the illegal and criminal invasion of Iraq in 2003 that set the Middle East on the path of bloodshed and destruction. This is the same man who called the invasion of Iraq "the most radical-liberal revolutionary war the US has ever launched." The is the same pundit who, about a month after George W. Bush declared "mission accomplished" – and the mission, destruction of Iraq and the rest of the Middle East, has indeed been accomplished – stated in an interview with Charlie Rose about that war,

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Friedman is a presstitute and warmonger of the most despicabler order, which is why he should be ignored, and become irrelevant to any future discussion of American foreign policy.

It therefore is completely logical that he should defend Saudi Prince Salman, the Butcher of Yemen, in his genocide against that country; that is what he is paid to do, defend the indefensible, in order to line the pockets of the Merchants of Death which own him and the NYT.

The silent partner in America’s sexual molestation culture, (by Michael Hoffman)

This autumn I am studying the Talmud Bavli (Bavli =Babylonian), tractate Sanhedrin, from 49b to 113A. My objective is to bring accurate knowledge of Orthodox Judaism’s holiest book to the attention of the public and to do so in accordance with exegetical principles free of hatred and bias. Answering two standard objections: 1. To the claim that I am "quoting out of context” — I urge readers to access tractate Sanhedrin and study it in an uncensored edition, and judge for yourself. I am hiding nothing and I am taking nothing out of context. Today’s study is entirely consonant with the contents of the Talmud as a whole, and for that matter, with the rabbinic halacha (law) derived from.

Israeli Govt Aims to Protect PM From Corruption Charges

The Israeli Knesset has voted 46-36 in favor of a new bill dubbed the “Netanyahu Law,” which aims to retroactively protect Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from two different ongoing investigations into corruption.

Technically the bill would protect all elected officials from such investigations, though Netanyahu is clearly the most obvious and primary beneficiary. The bill intends to forbid police from recommending charges be brought in their investigations.

Under the law, which still has to survive additional readings in the Knesset, police involved in investigations are effectively gagged from confirming if a crime was committed by a public official. Conceivably an Attorney General is still allowed to solicit such an assessment from the police, but it has to be totally secret, and what he does with such a recommendation is up to him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Expect this bill to be passed; the corruption of the Knesset is in full frontal display to the Israeli public right now.

Nothing personal - just business: US already supplies arms to Ukraine

Until the end of the week, US President Donald Trump should sign a new defense law, which provides $ 50 million to grant Ukraine lethal defensive weapons. Kyiv, for its part, continues to hope that the Pentagon will use these funds for its intended purpose, and Ukraine will finally get access to modern weapons of the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Great; so US companies are already delivering weapons to Ukraine; what could possibly go wrong with this?!?!?

Britain's secret role in Saudi Arabia's dirty war: UK troops are training army that has left a million on the brink of starvation, investigation finds

The British Army is secretly training Saudi Arabian troops to fight in Yemen, where the country has been accused of committing crimes against humanity, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Up to 50 UK military personnel have been teaching battlefield skills to soldiers who will be deployed in the so-called ‘dirty war’.

Thousands of civilians have been killed in bombing raids and an estimated one million children are facing starvation and serious illness as a result of the conflict.

The Army’s involvement is part of Britain’s ‘shameful complicity’ in the suffering, according to Tory MP and former Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You have to understand; what Saudi Prince Salman, the Butcher of Yemen, wants to see happen here, is a total and complete genocide of the Yemeni people.

And to that end, the US and UK have been incredibly complicit in making this guy's sick, twisted dream become a reality on the ground.

The picture which accompanies the article says it all; an innocent toddler, starving to death, who will probably never gain back either his intelligence or his health in full measure.

Prince Salman is utterly furious that this child, and all the other Yemeni children like him, have not already starved to death.

I am thoroughly amazed that he hasn't ordered a complete carpet bombing of the country, creating mass murder of every Yemeni civilian still breathing; but perhaps, that is his next step in the country's total obliviation and destruction.

And to the American and British legislators who have signed off on this; you no longer represent your alleged constitutents; only the corporations, particularly those merchants of death, which own you, and are making tremendous money peddling their wares to the Saudi governement for the genocide it is creating in Yemen.

And having signed off on this Saudi genocide in Yemen, this demonstrates, incontrovertibly, that you have collectively have had your consciences surgically removed before having taken office.

MOSCOW SCRAMBLES FIGHTER JET AFTER DETECTING US SPY PLANE APPROACHING RUSSIAN BORDER

Russia has scrambled a Su-30 fighter jet after detecting an American ?8? Poseidon reconnaissance aircraft over the Black Sea, according to a Defense Ministry statement. The US spy plane was approaching at high speed to the Russian border, it said.

The Russian fighter jet buzzed the US Navy reconnaissance plane at around 1pm local time (10:00 GMT) as it was flying over the neutral waters of the Black Sea, the ministry said.

“After moving closer, the Russian [Su-30] fighter jet flew over the object and visually identified it as an American reconnaissance aircraft ?8? Poseidon,” the statement reads.

After the spy plane was intercepted by the Russian Air Force, the US aircraft changed course and flew away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the tense environment between Russia and the US geopolitically and militarily, now is NOT the time for the US military to be playing "chicken" over neutral waters.

Why Mueller Is REALLY Indicting Flynn

So why is Mueller really going after Flynn?

When Flynn was head of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency and afterwards, he blew the whistle on the U.S. and its allies willfully allowing Islamic terrorists to flourish in Syria.

That didn’t ingratiate him with the Deep State …

Then last November, Flynn ruffled more feathers by writing:

The primary bone of contention between the U.S. and Turkey is Fethullah Gülen, a shady Islamic mullah residing in Pennsylvania whom former President Clinton once called his “friend” in a well circulated video.

Pakistan Protests Swell Into Nationwide Chaos: Islamabad Protests Spreading Precipitously

In early November, from 2,000 protesters from the Tehreek-e Labaik Ya Rasool Allah Pakistan (TLY) began a sit-in in the Pakistani capital of Islamabad. The protesters, led by cleric Khadim Hussain Rizvi, were originally provoked by a minor change to the oath for election candidates.

Though the government has already reversed the oath change, the TLY has kept the protest going, with Rizvi saying they want the resignation of the Law Minister, and that they need to “defend the honor of the Prophet.”

Officials had for weeks tried to placate them, offering talks, and even an apology from the Law Minister. On Saturday, however, police and paramilitary forces tried to push them off the streets, and that went very poorly.

After violent exchanges in the streets, more protesters are in the streets than ever, and Islamabad’s protest is now just the largest of several protests across the country, threatening to bring multiple cities grinding to a halt.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are we looking at a potential regime change in Islamabad?!?

This is who these people are, what they believe, and what they are demanding of the government:

The Tehreek-e-Labaik

They are looking for a complete return to Sharia law in Pakistan, through legal process, and to fight back against any human rights gains made by Pakistani women in the last couple of decades.

Saudi-led ‘Arab NATO’ declares total war on terrorism; Iran, Iraq & Syria not invited

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Salman has vowed to “wipe” terrorists from the “face of the earth” using resources available to the Islamic Military Alliance, a so-called ‘Arab NATO’ which claims to be targeting a “faceless enemy,” rather than any particular “sect” or “country.”

Formed in 2015 by then-deputy Crown Prince and defense minister of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, the IMA has so far only functioned on paper. Now the Crown Prince wants to take his brainchild to the next level by declaring a total “war against terrorism,” during the Sunday summit of IMA, also referred to as the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC) or the “Arab NATO.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OH, REALLY?!?!?

Forgive me, but I am nearly close to choking from nausea, invoked by the glaring hipocrisy of the words coming out of this guy's mouth, relative to the hellish realities on the ground he has created for the people of Yemen.

So please: when does Prince Salman intend to announce the end of the terror he and his coalition are raining down on Yemen with these damnable bombing raids, which are killing civillian women, children, and the medically fragile elderly here?!?

When will he stop the US-enabled blockades of Yemeni ports, leading to massive deaths by malnutrition?!?

And when will he get a reasonable, and rapid, medical response going to the horrific outbreak of cholera, which is killing thousands in Yemen?!?

Prince MBS, if you want to stop a lot of terror in the region, you had better damned well take a good, long look in a mirrior first.

THE DARK INEVITABILITY OF ZIONISM

Put broadly, BDS is an effort to help save the positive potential inherent in modern post-colonial society: the civilizing potential to be found in international law, in human and civil rights, in a benevolent and egalitarian rule of law for all of us.

So successful has BDS been to date, and so much potential does it have to help force Israel down the same road as white-ruled South Africa, that Israel and its surrogates in the U.S. and Europe are willing to undermine the very laws and rights that help uphold what freedoms there are within the public realm. For instance, in the U.S., the very right to engage in such a boycott is under Zionist attack, and by extension, so is the constitutional protection to free speech. American Zionists seem willing to subvert their own constitutional protections in order to support a racist foreign state.

SAUDIS WOO TORY MPS WITH LAVISH DINNERS & HOTELS AS 20 MILLION YEMENIS STARVE

The Saudi blockade of Yemen has left 20 million people on the brink of starvation, but some UK parliamentarians prefer not to notice, instead filling up their bellies with the help of royal hospitality of Riyadh, measuring in tens of thousands of pounds.

According to the Middle East Eye, members of UK parliament have accepted some £94,189 ($126,939) worth of luxury hotel stays, lavish dinners, business class flights, donations and other forms of hospitality from the Saudi government this year alone.

So far this year, 13 Conservative MPs have accepted the royal welcome, as well as one Labour MP, who reportedly got a donation worth £6,722 ($8,964), from the Saudi Kingdom.
