Erdogan’s Excellent Syrian Adventure

by Daniel Lazare Posted on February 19, 2020

What’s a political strongman to do when his economy is weak and another round of financial turbulence is on the way? When political support is languishing and a series of budget-busting construction projects has people shaking their head in dismay?

The answer is obvious: he invades another country in order to distract attention and give his poll numbers a boost. Better yet, he invades two countries and then travels to a third in order to make highly bellicose comments about a forth. Then while the press back home buzzes with excitement, he folds his hands and prays that somehow it will all work out.

The United States Is in Syria Illegally as a Proxy for Israel and Saudi Arabia

The first week in February was memorable for the failed impeachment of President Donald Trump, the “re-elect me” State of the Union address and the marketing of a new line of underwear by Kim Kardashian. Given all of the excitement, it was easy to miss a special State Department press briefing by Ambassador James Jeffrey held on February 5th regarding the current situation in Syria.

White House effectively admits Iran did not pose an 'imminent threat'

By Steve Benen

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif sat down with NBC News' Richard Engel last week and reflected on the violence between the United States and Iran last month. Zarif argued in the interview that the Trump administration brought the region very close to the brink." He added, "We were very close to a war."

Liberating Northern Syria Km by Km

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

Russian airpower and material support on the ground turned defeat into hoped for triumph of Syrian forces against the US, NATO, Turkey, Israel, the Saudis, and their jihadist proxies.

Despite raping and destroying one country after another, the US hasn’t won a war throughout the post-WW II period.

Can the World’s Second Superpower Rise From the Ashes of Twenty Years of War

February 15 marks the day, 17 years ago, when global demonstrations against the pending Iraq invasion were so massive that the New York Times called world public opinion “the second superpower.” But the U.S. ignored it and invaded Iraq anyway. So what has become of the momentous hopes of that day?

The U.S. military has not won a war since 1945, unless you count recovering the tiny colonial outposts of Grenada, Panama and Kuwait, but there is one threat it has consistently outmaneuvered without firing more than a few deadly rifle shots and some tear gas. Ironically, this existential threat is the very one that could peacefully cut it down to size and take away its most dangerous and expensive weapons: its own peace-loving citizens.

Syrian tribal leader claims Russian military protected during confrontation with US forces in northeast Syria

BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – Sheikh Faisal al-Yousef, the tribal leader of the Arab “Ghanamah” clan in the Al-Qamishli countryside confirmed to Sputnik Arabic that his tribe participated in the confrontations with the U.S. forces in northeastern Syria last week.

Father Arrested for Drugs, Dying In Prison As State Denies Him Cancer Treatment

Talladega County, AL — Justin Faircloth is a loving father and husband who, like many people, has made some mistakes throughout his life. His most recent mistake involves being caught with a substance deemed illegal by the state which has landed him in prison. This mistake may very well be his last as he will likely succumb to his stage 4 colon cancer — because the state is refusing to treat him.

Over the past four months, Faircloth’s dire condition has gone untreated. The jail wasn’t even allowing him to treat the extreme symptoms of his debilitating disease like pain and lack of appetite, nor have they allowed him to speak to his doctor.

“I haven’t received any treatment. They haven’t even let me speak to my doctor since the 17th of January,

Erdogan’s Long-Coming Reality Check:

by Ghassan Kadi for The Saker Blog

It is hard to say if Erdogan is running out of choices, friends, time, or all of the above; and his stands on various issues and the contradictions he ploughs through are making his situation increasingly untenable.

For the benefit of readers who haven’t heard this before; Erdogan is juggling being a Turkish Muslim reformer who parades under the photos of Turkish secular anti-Muslim nation-builder Mustafa Kemal; an EU-aspiring member and also an aspiring global Sunni leader; an ally of Israel as well as Hamas; an Islamist who is also at odds with the Wahhabi Islamists; a nationalist Turk who wants to curb Kurdish aspirations not only in Syria and Iraq but also in Turkey; a Sunni leader who wants to restore the Sultanate and Caliphate and the fundamentalist Sunni version of anti-Shiite Islam but is also a friend of Shiite Iran; a NATO member with a special relationship with America, and a special friend and ally of Russia.

STILL No Non-East Asian Deaths From Corona—But CNN’s Sanjay Gupta Won’t Admit It

The story so far: There is still no confirmed case of the Coronavirus killing anyone other than ethnic East Asians. The Drudge Report today (February 15) features FRANCE REPORTS FIRST DEATH OUTSIDE ASIA... but the underlying story, from Bloomberg via Yahoo Finance, says the victim was an “80-year-old Chinese tourist.” Drudge, of course, is just scaring up clicks. But why does the rest of the Main Stream Media, and the medical Establishment, want to suppress a possibility that could relieve fears around the world: that the Coronavirus disproportionately impacts, and perhaps only kills, East Asians?

Into The Inferno: 75 Years On, The Most Horrifically Vivid Account of The Allied Bombing of Dresden

During the final months of World War II, from February 13 to 15, 1945, Allied forces bombed the ancient, cathedral city of Dresden, in eastern Germany.

The bombing was controversial because Dresden's contribution to the war effort was minimal compared with other German cities — though it was a key transport junction and used by German forces to defend the country against Soviet forces approaching from the east.

Before the huge air raid, it had not suffered a major Allied attack. By February 15, however, it was a smouldering ruin — 2,400 tons of high explosives and 1,500 tons of incendiary bombs were dropped on the city. An unknown number of civilians, somewhere between 35,000 and 135,000, were dead.

Saudi Arabia dismisses criticism over Khashoggi murder

In an exclusive interview on Conflict Zone, senior Saudi foreign affairs official Adel al-Jubeir says Riyadh is paying 'a great price' over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi but dismisses criticism from human rights groups over its treatment of activists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OF course, you cannot criticize Saudi Human rights, because they have none.

Clever, those Saudis!

This is why, as a Christian, I could never visit Riyadh, because in walking off the plane, I would be accused or apostasy, and be subsequently tortured and or killed.

‘NY Times’ covers up annexation plan scheme to ‘denationalize’ 350,000 Palestinian citizens of Israel

The U.S. mainstream media, with the New York Times in the lead, is covering up a shocking feature of the Netanyahu/Trump annexation plan that would strip 350,000 to 400,000 Palestinian citizens of Israel of their citizenship. The “denationalization” proposal is a crime against humanity, but the American press is ignoring it.

Thabet Abu Rass lives in the affected area, a predominately Palestinian part of northeast Israel known as “The Triangle,” where he heads an organization devoted to promoting peace between Israel’s Jewish and Arab citizens. Here’s how he translated the denationalization proposal:

Just imagine if today Donald Trump would tell Hispanic Americans living in the southwest, in territories annexed to the United States from Mexico in the 19th century, that they are Mexican citizens now and no longer American citizens. . . That is exactly what they are trying to do to us.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To those who have been following the Israeli/Palestinian struggle for some time now, it should come as absolutely zero shock, that Israel essentially gets everything out of the alleged "deal of the century", while Palestinians get nothing, except more marginalization.

Dresden Terror Bombing, Like Hiroshima, A Maniacal Warning To Moscow

This weekend 75 years ago, the German city of Dresden was razed to the ground by British and American aerial bombardment. At least 25,000 mainly civilians were destroyed in raid after raid by over 1,200 heavy bombers, indiscriminately dropping high explosives and incendiaries. It took seven years just to clear the rubble.

It’s time to reclaim Syria’s road to recovery

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, neo-Ottoman extraordinaire, is not exactly inclined to commit seppuku, the Japanese act of ritual suicide.

But if not through the perspective of neo-Ottomanism, how to explain the fact he is de facto supporting al-Qaeda remnants in Syria while facing two unsavory options – a humiliating retreat from or total war against the Syrian Arab Army?

Seventy-five years after the Dresden war crime, still no justice

This digital composite image (click to enlarge) shows a statue on the tower of City Hall looking down in compassion at the ruins of the city center wrought by the British-American firebombing of February 13, 1945 as well as the same scene on February 12, 2015 to the left and the right. This area that was the cultural pinacle of historic Germany and the Third Reich has become a parking lot. I think there is a song that goes something like that. The vast majority of the city was devastated by the Allied firebombing of February 13-14, 1945.

Gen. Soleimani assassinated to sabotage Iran's talks with Saudis, UAE following Israeli briefing: NYT

Washington ordered the assassination of top Iranian General Qassem Soleimani to sabotage de-escalation talks between Iran, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates following a report by Israel's Mossad spy agency, according to the New York Times.

The paper reported on Thursday that General Soleimani had been arranging talks in Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates in order to de-escalate tensions with Tehran.

The Times wrote that the talks happened after Saudi Arabia and the UAE, which are central to the Trump administration's so-called regional alliance seeking to pressure Iran, began to question the efficiency of Washington's anti-Iran campaign.

Israel’s Netanyahu boasts of destroying US 1st Amendment & free speech

Anti-boycott laws do not only punish companies, they are the most dangerous assault on free speech in the United States since the McCarthy era.

by Juan Cole Reposted from Informed Comment

Israeli caretaker prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who has been indicted for corruption and is facing an election soon, just boasted that his ministry of strategic affairs has managed to undermine first amendment protections for free speech in the United States by lobbying state legislatures to pass laws forbidding the boycott of Israel.

Outrage as Saudi Arabia executes Indonesian maid for killing boss while he was raping her

And our tax dollars and Trump support this scum!

Mum-of-one, Tuti Tursilawati was executed after she killed her boss who was raping her, and this sparked outrage in Jakarta.

Tuti Tursilawati was killed on Monday in the city of Ta’if, a city in Saudi Arabia’s Mecca Province. The Saudi government failed to warn the maid’s family or consular staff before she was killed, said officials. Her execution has prompted protests from Indonesia.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo called Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister, Adel al-Jubeir, demanding to know why Jakarta had not been informed about Monday’s execution of Tuti Tursilawati.

American Citizens Killed and Tortured by Israel?

One of the principal functions of a United States Embassy overseas is to provide citizen services, which includes coming to the assistance of Americans who are treated badly by the local government. It is a responsibility that most embassies take seriously, with the exception of the facility currently located in Jerusalem.

America’s current ambassador, former Trump bankruptcy lawyer David Friedman, has funded Israel’s illegal settlements, which did not in any way complicate his confirmation as nearly everyone in Congress and the White House does not believe that the Palestinians actually are human beings.

What the U.S. Embassy under Friedman will not do is put any real pressure on the Israeli government if its security forces or rampaging settlers kill, beat, maim or torture an American citizen, especially if said citizen happens to be of Palestinian descent.

White House Justifies Killing Soleimani for Past Actions, not Imminent Threats

Trump can't get his reasons straight for murdering the General. He can't tell the truth about the casualties. He violated US law and International law by murdering Soleimani after luring him to Baghdad. Trump is nothing but a zionist/neocon minion! Here is the law if anyone cares to read it.

https://corpuslegalis.com/us/code/title18/murder-or-manslaughter-of-fo...

The White House released a memo on Friday to Congress justifying the assassination of top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani. Despite earlier claims from the administration of Soleimani and his Quds Force planning imminent attacks on US personnel in the region, the memo uses past actions as the justification for the killing.

US Patrol Turned Back at Syrian Army Checkpoint. US Officer: “We Are Here to Bring Peace Just Like the Russians”

More footage from the February 12 standoff between a US patrol and Syrian villagers and soldiers in the village of Khirbet Amo in northeastern Syria. The standoff eventually resulted in

American reinforcements arriving in 5 additional vehicles,
the Russians arriving on the scene to try to calm things down,
a molotov cocktail being thrown at one of the American vehicles,
the Americans killing one of the villagers,
the Syrians opening rifle fire on armored US vehicles,
F-16s circling overhead, firing flares from a low altitude,
and the Americans in the end nonetheless retreating and going back to base.

The exchange between the US commander and a Syrian officer through an Iraqi translator the Americans have with them:

– “We Are Here to Bring Peace Just Like the Russians”

– “Wherever the US goes it brings death and destruction, you are not welcome here.”

Understanding why they lie and why they get away with it

Is there really anybody out there who will deny that the US government lies pretty much about everything and anything?. And it’s not just the Executive Branch, Congress lies possibly even more (both parties, of course). In fact, I would argue that lying is both necessary AND expected from any US politician. When somebody like Tulsi Gabbard or Ron Paul don’t abide by this rule, the media immediately dismisses them as “Putin agents” or something equally insipid.

The truth is that lies have become the norm of the western political discourse.

That is bad enough by itself. But there is worse.

The worst is not that western politicians lie, the worst is that almost nobody cares.

That is really scary.

Why?

The Suicidal Empire

There are a lot of behaviors being exhibited by those in positions of power in the US that seem disparate and odd. We watch Trump who is imposing sanctions on country after country, dreaming of eradicating his country’s structural trade deficit with the rest of the world. We watch pretty much all of US Congress falling over each other in their attempt to impose the harshest possible sanctions on Russia. People in Turkey, a key NATO country, are literally burning US dollars and smashing iPhones in a fit of pique. Confronted with a new suite of Russian and Chinese weapons systems that largely neutralize the ability of the US to dominate the world militarily, the US is setting new records in the size of its already outrageously bloated yet manifestly ineffectual defense spending.

Russian politicians, military experts: The Syrian State has the right to use military force against terrorists on its land

MOSCOW, (ST)- Deputy Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Russian Federation Council Andrei Klimov has affirmed that Russia's position towards Syria is based on the basic principles of the international law which consider that all the military forces and armed groups operating on Syrian territories without the approval of the legitimate Syrian government , as occupation forces which have no mandate justifying their presence in Syria.

In a statement to SANA, Klimov said the Turkish regime has not implemented its commitments regarding the de-escalation zone in Idleb pursuant to the Sochi agreement, stressing that this Turkish behavior complicates the situation in this area.

Trump Regime Illegals Murder a Syrian Civilian, Get to Taste Syrian Anger

The best I can tell the US troops killed a 14 year old for stoning their armored vehicle. And then things got really nasty.

This was too much for the cowardly, cheaply paid Trump regime forces, who then in full chickensh*t character, unleashed smoke bombs to blind the locals before shooting into the crowd, with live ammunition.

A civilian from Khirbet Ammo was murdered; another civilian from Hamoun village was injured.

More Lies on Iran: The White House Just Can’t Help Itself as New Facts Emerge

The public that actually follows the news might recall a little more than one month ago the United States assassinated a senior Iranian official named Qassem Soleimani. Openly killing someone in the government of a country with which one is not at war is, to say the least, unusual, particularly when the crime is carried out in yet another country with which both the perpetrator and the victim have friendly relations.

It soon emerged that the Iranian was in fact in Baghdad to discuss with the Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi a plan that might lead to the de-escalation of the ongoing conflict between Saudi Arabia and Iran, a meeting that the White House apparently knew about may even have approved. If that is so, events as they unfolded suggest that the U.S. government might have encouraged Soleimani to make his trip so he could be set up and killed.

Dems Phony War Powers Resolution

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

US 20th and 21st century history shows Dems more hellbent for war than Republicans.

In 1916, Dem Woodrow Wilson was reelected on a pledge of: “He Kept Us Out of War.”

Straightaway, he began planning US involvement in Europe’s war — today called WW I.

Propaganda his regime sponsored transformed pacifist Americans into raging German haters. Wilson got the war he wanted.

The same goes for Dem Franklin Roosevelt. From 1933 to late 1941, he spurned Japanese peace overtures that would have protected US interests in the Pacific.

By executive order, he froze Japanese assets. He waged economic war on the country, goading its ruling authorities to retaliate.

In late November 1941, US war secretary Henry Stimson said war depended only on how to maneuver Japan to attack with the lowest number of US casualties.

When the US soldiers opened fire against the Syrian citizens, the SAA's checkpoint members deployed defensively and opened fire to cover the civilians in the area.

US troops clash with pro-government group in northeast Syria

DAMASCUS -- A Syrian was killed and another was wounded when government supporters attacked American troops and tried to block their way as their convoy drove through an army checkpoint in northeastern Syria, prompting a rare clash, state media and activists reported.

The U.S. military said its force came under fire, and that troops responded in self-defense. It said an investigation of the incident was underway.

Syrian state-run media said the man killed was a civilian and that he was among residents of a village east of the town of Qamishli who had gathered at the checkpoint and pelted the U.S. convoy with stones.

The crimes of the United States have been systematic, constant, vicious, remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them. You have to hand it to America. It has exercised a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good.

Democratic presidential candidates should stop trying to figure out how to appeal to Trump voters, moderates, conservatives, independents and anyone else who is “on the fence.” If anyone is seriously “on the fence” these days, they’re either playing you or morally bankrupt.

I am a mother, physician, small business owner and yoga teacher. I deeply care about the future of the world and our country.

I travel to Gaza as often as I am allowed in by Israel. I work in various clinics throughout Gaza offering medical education, mental health care and yoga classes for trauma survivors (everyone in Gaza is a trauma survivor).

In July 2017 I even took my 10-year-old daughter to Gaza as an International Student Ambassador in the annual United Nations Gaza Summer Fun Weeks Camp.

Will President Rodrigo Duterte End US Occupation of the Philippines?

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

Throughout the post-WW II era, the US sought unchallenged control over Asian nations, their resources and populations — what Obama’s 2011 Asia pivot was and remains all about.

It involves advancing Washington’s military footprint in a part of the world not its own, aiming to contain, weaken and isolate China and North Korea, wanting Russia checked at the same time in East Asia and Europe.

Washington’s global empire of bases is key to advancing its imperium — parts of it used as platforms for endless wars against nations threatening no one.

Yet there’s little or no coverage of what costs US taxpayers trillions of dollars in the post-WW II era.

Democrats Ignore Trump’s Real Violations

Last month, President Trump authorized the assassination of a top Iranian General, Qassim Soleimani, and a top Iraqi military officer inside Iraqi territory while Soleimani was on a diplomatic mission. Trump and his Administration tried to claim that the attack was essential because of an “imminent threat” of a Soleimani attack on US troops in the region.

We found out shortly afterward that they lied about the “imminent threat.” The assassination was not “urgent” – it was planned back in June. Trump then claimed it didn’t matter whether there was an imminent threat: Soleimani was a bad guy so he deserved to be assassinated.

But the attack was an act of war on Iran without Congressional declaration or authorization for war. Is that not perhaps a “high crime” or “misdemeanor”?

Turkish Police Recover Stolen jewish Torah Scrolls Decorated With Satanic Illuminati Symbolism

Turkish Police arrested Faylaq al-Rahman fighters who were trying to sell two rare, ancient, gold-plated jewish Torahs in the northwestern province of Bilecik. The Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah said that Police had confiscated the two ancient Torahs during the arrest. Syrian opposition sources confirmed that Faylaq al-Rahman fighters had stolen the ancient Torahs from a historical 2,000 years old synagogue in the Jobar district, east of the Syrian capital of Damascus. They contain plenty of more Satanic symbolism such as the demon Baphomet, Illuminati triangle with the all seeing eye, blood libel, serpents, kabbalah hand signs, owls and many other things.

Implausible Denials: The Crime at Jabal al Tharda. US-led Air Raid on Behalf of ISIS-Daesh Against Syrian Forces

On 17 September 2016 a carefully planned US-led air raid on Jabal al Tharda (Mount Tharda), overlooking Deir Ezzor airport, slaughtered over 100 Syrian soldiers and delivered control of the mountain to DAESH / ISIS. After that surprise attack, the terrorist group held the mountain for almost a year, but did not manage to take the airport or the entire city. US-led forces admitted the attack but claimed it was all a ‘mistake’. However uncontested facts, eye witness accounts and critical circumstances show that was a lie. This article sets out the evidence of this crime, in context of Washington’s historical use of mercenaries for covert actions, linked to the doctrine of ‘plausible deniability’.

Neo-McCarthyite Witchhunters Hypocritically Mourn the Death of Kirk Douglas

by Matthew Ehret Posted on February 10, 2020

Hollywood film legend Kirk Douglas’ passing on February 5th at the age of 103 has resulted in a sickening level of hypocrisy from the leftist mainstream media outlets. These outlets have written countless homages and memorials honoring the life of the man who “used his star power and influence in the late 1950s to help break the Hollywood blacklist” as CNN reported on February 6. Similar eulogies have followed this line from MSNBC, the NY Times, Washington Post, as well as many Hollywood celebrities.

What makes this so sickening is not that these memorials are untrue, but rather that it is these same MSM/Hollywood forces that are the heirs to the fascist McCarthyite machine which Kirk Douglas and his close network of collaborators fought so courageously against during their lives.

Great Investigative Piece on Syrian Rebel Mercenaries in Libya Hired by Turkey

“Turkish forces are resorting to lies to keep the Syrians fighting in Libya motivated”, “These mercenaries believe whatever Turkey tells them”

Editor’s note: Great piece on how Turkey undermined the Islamist rebels in Idlib whose military defeat at the hands of the Syrian army it is now so loudly protesting.

As Syrian and Russian forces bombard Idlib and the Aleppo countryside, thousands of militants from the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (TFSA) who would presumably be defending these areas in Syria are instead in Libya. They’ve been flown to Tripoli by Turkey, at the request of the Government of National Accord (GNA), to fight alongside the myriad Islamist groups defending the key city from the advancing Libyan National Army (LNA), led by General Khalifa Haftar.

After their excessive and macabre display of delight and satisfaction, and even celebration, over the killing of Solemani, the White House was tight-lipped about Iran’s almost immediate retaliatory missile attack on two US bases in Iraq, with Donald Trump soon claiming only a bit of physical damage, announcing on Twitter a day after the attack, “No Americans were harmed in last night’s attack by the Iranian regime. We suffered no casualties.” Trump also stated there was no significant damage to the bases.

Trump’s Chumps

I voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

I spent months making the case for Trump on this website. I will be the first to admit that I was wrong and that those who were skeptical of Trump in our community were right in 2016. In that election, I drank the koolaid and was one of Trump’s Chumps. Unlike AmNats, I have tried to learn something from that experience.

In 2020, we have a far better sense of Donald Trump. The Trump administration has a record now. Donald Trump’s first term is mostly history. We can now look back with the benefit of hindsight and evaluate our standing after the last three years without being drunk on Trump koolaid. No one drank the Trump koolaid in our community more deeply than the AmNats. Some of them remained drunk on the Trump koolaid even after the 2018 midterms. A handful of his most faithful cheerleaders have never given up faith in their GOD EMPEROR and succumbed to reality.

"The Israeli general staff's use of passenger jets as a cover for its military operations or as a shield from Syrian missile system fire is becoming a typical trait of Israeli air force," he said.

Russia had previously warned that Israeli airstrikes against Damascus were endangering civilian jets.

Turkey preparing for war against Syria and Russia

Erdogan and his forces killed 4 Russian FSB officers. Time for Putin to put out The Dog!

In the afternoon, a suicide bomber from Hayat Tahrir al-Cham blew himself up in a building housing Russian forces. We are still unaware of the outcome of this operation, which we understand should be assumed by Turkey.

We are heading in the short term towards a conflict between Turkey, a member of NATO, and Russia, a member of the CSTO.

Former Air Force Drone Operator Speaks Out Against US Atrocities

A former Air Force drone operator-turned-whistleblower is once again speaking out against the atrocities he committed while serving in a military he describes as "worse than the Nazis."

Brandon Bryant was a sensor operator of USAF unmanned aerial drones from 2006 to 2011. His job was targeted killing – remotely firing missiles at targets 7,000 miles (11,000 km) away from an air-conditioned command center near Las Vegas, Nevada. During his Air Force tenure, Bryant says his squadron engaged 1,626 targets, including women and children. He estimates that he is personally responsible for the deaths of 13 people.

FLASHBACK: The Iraq Death Toll 15 Years After the US Invasion

March 19 marks 15 years since the U.S.-U.K invasion of Iraq in 2003, and the American people have no idea of the enormity of the calamity the invasion unleashed. The US military has refused to keep a tally of Iraqi deaths. General Tommy Franks, the man in charge of the initial invasion, bluntly told reporters, “We don’t do body counts.” One survey found that most Americans thought Iraqi deaths were in the tens of thousands. But our calculations, using the best information available, show a catastrophic estimate of 2.4 million Iraqi deaths since the 2003 invasion.

FLASHBACK: US-Backed Terrorism in Syria: A First-Hand Account of the Use of Mortars Against Civilians

Note: since submitting this article for publication, terrorist-mortars have rained down on Damascus, with a reported 30 mortars on Wednesday-killing 8 and injuring at least 9–and another at least 7 mortars on Thursday–killing 2 and injuring at least 20 people, according to the Damascus-based monitoring group, “A Mortar’s Diary” [see their FB page]

In stark contrast to the sparse coverage of the brutality of ISIS and other terrorist groups in Syria over the past few years, there has recently been substantial coverage of the emergence of ISIS in Iraq and the terrorist acts that this US-backed and funded group has been committing.

NYPD cop charged over son's death called him 'a piece of s**t' in text exchange, and said 'I've been through more stressful things than this' when he was told the eight-year-old was dead

Long Island prosecutors say a New York police officer called his eight-year-old son a 'f*****g piece of s**t' and bragged that he had 'been through more stressful things' when he learned the boy died of hypothermia in his garage.

Gasps were heard in Suffolk County Court in Riverhead on Thursday as prosecutors read text messages that Michael Valva sent to his fiancee just two days before his autistic son, Thomas, died at his home in Center Moriches on January 17.

Thomas, who was allegedly being starved, beaten and locked outside overnight by his father, was laid to rest last Thursday in the Long Island neighborhood of Melville.

A Demagogic and Dishonest SOTU

February 4, 2020|

Daniel Larison

Trump’s State of the Union address tonight was a laundry list of false and misleading claims. It will take the fact-checkers the better part of the night to identify all of the misrepresentations and spurious claims that the president made as he rattled off one implausible statistic after another. The few references that Trump made to foreign policy issues predictably glossed over the many failures of administration policies. If you knew nothing about the last three years of Trump’s presidency, the picture he painted sounded pretty good. If you have paid any attention at all before now, you realized that the country was being snowed under with an avalanche of lies and half-truths.

The most disingenuous part may have been this section on Iran:

Horrifying Video Shows Cops Surround Sleeping Pregnant Mother and Execute Her

Dallas, TX — Genevive Dawes, 21, had harmed no one and committed no crime when multiple Dallas police officers surrounded her and her husband as they slept in their new car. However, because a trigger happy cop was on the scene that night, Dawes and the unborn child in her belly were executed. Now, the cop who opened fire on this pregnant mother of two is headed to trial.

"Zipper Killing" Americans: A Police Tactic Of Killing People In A Hail Of Gunfire

Have you ever tried to get someone's attention because they forgot to pull up their fly? Perhaps you have tried to use hand signals or made eye contact with them in a discreet attempt to get them to zip up their fly.

Well, America's police have figured out a way to make sure a person will never forget to pull up their zipper.

As the above video explains, police are being taught to 'start shooting a suspect low on the pelvic girdle and work their way up to the face or on the brain housing group' like a zipper.

The instructor's use of words, "pelvic girdle and brain housing" are designed to make it easier for cops to justify using their weapons like a zipper on human beings.

The United States of America’s Doll House: A Vast Tapestry of Lies and Illusions

One of the first things an authoritarian governing elite must do is to convince people that they are not free. This has been going on for at least forty years, ever since the Church Committee’s revelations about the CIA in the mid-seventies, including its mind-control program, MKULTRA. Everyone was appalled at the epiphany, so a different tactic was added. Say those programs have been ended when in fact they were continued under other even deeper secret programs, and just have “experts” – social, psychological, and biological “scientists” – repeat ad infinitum that there is no longer any mind control since we now know there is no mind; it is an illusion, and it all comes down to the brain.

America At War Forever

Hollywood practices the same censorship as CNN, the New York Times, and the rest of the presstitutes who champion war. Stone notes that we never hear the point of view from the countries that are labeled “threats,” such as Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, and Venezuela.

The Democrat and Republican political parties are also all for war. The Democrats won’t even let Tulsi Gabbard participate in the New Hampshire presidential Town Halls, because she is not a partisan of war.

Stone says that the fact that Democrat leaders such as Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden are as pro-war as Dick Cheney and the Zionist neocons “shows you how locked up America is.” As Putin said in the interviews Stone did with him, “It doesn’t make a difference who is President of the United States.” Washington’s policy is hegemony achieved through war.

US deploys “usable” nuclear weapon amid continuing war threats against Iran

The Pentagon deployed a new, smaller nuclear warhead aboard the ballistic missile submarine USS Tennessee as it sailed into the Atlantic last month in the midst of the spiraling crisis with Iran. The weapon, known as the W76-2 warhead, has an explosive yield of roughly five kilotons, a third of the destructive power of the “Little Boy” bomb that claimed the lives of some 140,000 people in Hiroshima in 1945.

Israel says it has ramped up the deployment and testing of nuclear and nuclear-capable weapons amid heightened regional tensions after the US assassinated top Iranian General Qassem Soleimani and unveiled a biased Middle East plan.

The ministry of military affairs of the Israeli regime on Friday announced that it had conducted a launch test of a “rocket propulsion system from a base in the center of the country”.

The ministry refused to disclose any additional details regarding the nature of the missile, contrary to its usual conduct following satellite launcher and missile interceptor tests.

The Real John Bolton

Bolton, who used student deferments and service in the Maryland National Guard to avoid serving in Vietnam, is a classic Chicken Hawk. He supported the Vietnam War and continues to support the war in Iraq. Bolton endorsed preemptive military strikes in North Korea and Iran in recent years, and lobbied for regime change in Cuba, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen. When George W. Bush declared an “axis of evil” in 2002 consisting of Iran, Iraq, and North Korea, Bolton added an equally bizarre axis of Cuba, Libya, and Syria.

The Nasty Secret Behind Aramco, ISIS and Trump in Syria

In 2017, soon after Trump took office, Aramco, the Saudi owned oil conglomerate, opened offices in Deir Ezzor province in Syria.

Under the protection of both ISIS and the United States Army, Aramco began an exploration of 12 new oil and gas deposits recognized by American SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) military satellites, retasked for this purpose.

These oil and gas fields represent significant finds, equaling the Kirkuk field in Iraq and the largest of Saudi Arabia’s oil finds.

Similarly, as early as 2012, massive oil and gas deposits were discovered in the Mediterranean Sea, some off Gaza, others off Cyprus, but the largest traversed inland, into Syria, across Latakia and Idlib Provinces, areas now held by ISIS and al Qaeda with US support.

Central Vietnam: An Enduring Legacy of How Far Washington is Willing to Go

Nothing has changed.

Andre Vltchek
21st Century Wire

My Lai. My Son… This story is short, but it is telling. And I have travelled far, in order to bring it to my readers.

My Lai hamlet in Central Vietnam may be one of the most gruesome and symbolic places on earth, like Nanking or Auschwitz. It clearly depicts just how monstrous war can be, and how ruthless, appalling the occupiers can become.

It is also a place we should have on our lips now, when it appears that the “Empire” ruled from Washington is once again ready to attack several countries, all over the world.

But is President Donald Trump an insane anomaly, or just a continuation of ruthless and sadistic rulers?

To answer this question, I travelled back to Vietnam, a country which used to be my home, almost two decades ago.

Horrifying Video Shows Officers Mock Suffering Father Until He Turned Blue and Died

“Help! Help me! Help!” Ellis said.

As he begs for help, officers can be heard on the video mocking him and refusing to call medical.

Instead of helping him, Ellis was threatened with being shackled to the floor. Hours later, at 1:38 p.m. Ellis was found unresponsive in his cell. At 2:03 p.m. he was hauled out on a gurney and finally brought to the hospital. But it was too late. Ellis would be pronounced dead on arrival.

The United States: a Record-Holder in Political Assassinations

The crowing by Donald Trump that he “terminated” the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Quds Force, Major General Qaseem Soleimani, simply because Trump believed, mobster-style, that he had it coming, should remind the world that the United States government stands as the world’s record-holder in either directly carrying out or coordinating with other parties the assassination of political leaders, American and foreign.

FLASHBACK: How Many Millions Have Been Killed in America’s Post-9/11 Wars?

March 23rd, 2018

By Nicolas J.S. Davies

How many people have been killed in America’s post-9/11 wars? I have been researching and writing about that question since soon after the U.S. launched these wars, which it has tried to justify as a response to terrorist crimes that killed 2,996 people in the U.S. on September 11th 2001.

But no crime, however horrific, can justify wars on countries and people who were not responsible for the crime committed, as former Nuremberg prosecutor Ben Ferencz patiently explained to NPR at the time......

‘Wave of Anti-Semitism’ Exaggerated

Most “anti-Semitic attacks” are shouting matches between Israel lovers and critics.

By Phil Giraldi

One of the few growth industries in Donald Trump’s United States is the protection of Jewish citizens and their property from a largely contrived wave of anti-Semitism that is allegedly sweeping the nation. Even while potentially catastrophic developments in the Middle East continue to unfold, the threat of anti-Semitism continues to dominate much of the news cycle in the mainstream media.

The Nasty Secret Behind Aramco, ISIS and Trump in Syria

Makes sense now. Syria has more oil and natural gas than you can shake a stick at. New discoveries. New fields.

The Saudi Arabian oil company, Aramco, is now hiring oil workers throughout Deir Ezzor Province inside Syria as part of a joint effort, nominally with an unknown American entity and with full partnership with both ISIS and the United States Army.

Thousands of unemployed Syrian engineers and oil workers are being asked to apply for jobs paying $3000 per month.

No one knows who they will be working for.This is the story we will be examining, how it began and where it is going now.

In 2017, soon after Trump took office, Aramco, the Saudi owned oil conglomerate, opened offices in Deir Ezzor province in Syria.

Under the protection of both ISIS and the United States Army, Aramco began an exploration of 12 new oil and gas deposits recognized by American SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) military satellites, retasked for this purpose.

Whenever I point out that the current administration has been advancing many longstanding agendas of the CIA and neoconservative war pigs–agendas like military expansionism, imprisoning Assange, regime change interventionism in Iran and Venezuela, and reigniting the Cold War–his supporters always come in saying “If he’s working for the establishment how come the establishment is working so hard to get rid of him, huh?”

Taliban repel Afghan forces’ attempt to reach US spy plane crash site

The Taliban say they have repelled an attempt by Afghan government forces to reach the site of a crashed US spy plane in Ghazni province.

According to Zabiullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman, clashes erupted as the government forces, backed by the US military, tried for the second time to reach the wreckage site in the militants' stronghold.

"Taliban fighters on the ground counted six bodies at the site of the U.S. airplane crash," he said, adding there was uncertainty regarding the total fatality count because the fire had consumed everything.

The American spy plane, a Bombardier E-11A, came down in the central province early Monday.

Podcast with links to several stories.

Stephen Zunes discusses the catastrophic mistake of the U.S. plan to invade Iraq, then “divide and rule” along sectarian lines. Zunes says that although the relationship between Iran and the Iraqi Shiite government is a problem for those who worry about Iranian influence in the Middle East, the irony that everyone seems to have forgotten is that it was the Bush Administration that overthrew the Sunni government there in the first place, essentially fighting against Saddam Hussein on behalf of Iran. Moreover, the only real threat from Iran is to the American soldiers who are there on foreign soil fighting a war we started. We would be far better off if we had just stayed away, a message that Zunes says nearly every Middle East scholar in America could have told you in 2001.

University professor Dr. Bill Podlich captured this phase in history when he travelled to Afghanistan in 1967 with Margaret, his wife, and Jan and Peg, their two teenage daughters. The main reason for their relocation revolved around Dr. Podlich’s desire to become the Expert of Principles of Education at the Higher Teachers College of Kabul. Aside from teaching, the professor also used his Kodachrome film camera to hold onto 1960s Afghanistan and to document the relationships he’d forged with many Afghans.

The proposal to stamp out free speech is buried in a package of amendments to the state code that at first glance seem innocent enough, and would severely punish threats of death and physical harm to the governor, and, again, other state officials.
