Iraq's Ghost Army

December 4th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

Reports show tens of billions of dollars in post-war Iraqi aid wasted. A likely $100 billion or more.

Down a black hole. Misused. Stolen. Washington turning a blind eye. Not a single Iraqi official held accountable. Or US one.

Including for establishing a ghost army. Around 50,000 strong. More on this below.

US imperial strategy works this way. Target an easy-to-defeat sovereign independent country. Most often a resource rich one.

Claim it threatens US security. When no threat whatever exists. Fear-monger ad nauseam.

Get media scoundrels to repeat Big Lies. Bury hard truths. Manipulate public opinion.

Looming US Ground Wars in Iraq and Syria

November 16th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

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 sending US ground forces to Iraq. Accompanying Iraqi troops, he said.

Reactions to Obama's Naked Aggression Against Syria

September 25th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

On Tuesday, Obama attacked another country lawlessly. Syria poses no threat to America.

Obama bombed multiple sites. He did so with no legal authority. He committed lawless aggression.

He's done it repeatedly throughout his tenure. It's the highest of high crimes against peace.

He violated international, constitutional and US statute laws. The 1996 US War Crimes Act calls them "grave breaches."

Obama's wars are Nuremberg-level crimes. They demand accountability. Expect none forthcoming.

His so-called coalition allies include a rogue's gallery of despotic regimes. He said he's "proud" to be allied with them.

Who Owns the Nukes if Wall Street Owns the Government? Maybe it’s Time to Take Back the Government

September 8th, 2014

By Nicholas C. Arguimbau

Paul Craig Roberts is not a fool. Nor is he a card-carrying Communist. His conservative credentials at least once were impeccable - a senior researcher at the Hoover Institute, Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal, one of the economists responsible for President Reagan’s supply-side economics, and Reagan’s Assistant Treasury Secretary for economic policy, working for development of the tax policies that were central to everything that followed in the US

That is why he cannot be dismissed lightly when he says the United States and Russia are already at war over the Ukraine, and the US is planning nuclear war, based upon a transparent pretense. He is not alone. Now there are almost daily expressions of concern that the US is positioning itself to take the first strike in a nuclear war with Russia; see, e.g. Stern,"Threats Against Russia Increase Danger Of Nuclear War ,"

Waging Genocidal War on Humanity

August 12th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

Doing so constitutes longstanding US and Israeli policy. The indisputable record speaks for itself.

Besides its genocidal native population genocide, every US post-WW II war was waged lawlessly.

So were all Israeli wars throughout its existence except for the 1973 Yom Kippur conflict.

Both nations prioritize violence and instability. They deplore peace. It's a non-starter.

Civilians are considered legitimate targets. Mass murder, destruction and genocide follow. The disturbing pattern repeats unaccountably.

Both countries partner in horrendous crimes against humanity. The world community yawns and does nothing to stop them.

Iraq and Global Humanity: How to Make Peace and Stop Bloodshed?

June 25th, 2014

Dr. Mahboob A. Khawaja

The global mankind is witnessing again live horror stories, daily bloodshed and misinformation re-enacting compulsion of evil and temptation of political domination by the few warlords to revisit Iraq’s decade-old sufferings of the common people and the ripple effects of the US-Britain aggression against Iraq. Piety and wickedness cannot be combined in one leadership character. Undoubtedly, global mankind is conscientious of how few warmongers had exercised individualistic absolutism to invade Iraq in 2003 under false pretext of Weapons of Mass Destruction-WMD. The aim was a regime change to occupy and control the precious oil resources of Iraq. When the ISIS fighters are reportedly approaching the strategic oil sites and Baghdad, the US leadership arranged to evacuate 5,000 oil contractors stationed in Iraq after the Bush-led occupation of Iraq. All the new oil executives (probably including the Bush family) in Iraq were given legal immunity from prosecution by an executive order of George Bush. Analyzing the moral and psychological factors operating below the threshold of political consciousness, American leadership failed miserably to separate rationality of implied political power from wisdom.

Iraq, America and The Lobby Can American Jews unplug the Israel lobby?

June 16th, 2014

By Gilad Atzmon

It is amusing to witness the energy and effort mainstream news outlets are investing in diverting attention from the fact that the current mess in Iraq is the direct outcome of Jewish political domination of the West for the last two decades.

When America and Britain launched the criminal second Gulf War, it was the Zionist Neocons, a bunch of politically influential Jews who urged the ‘liberation’ of the Iraqi people. Members of the same breed of tribal exponents have rallied for intervention in Iran, Libya and most recently in Syria.
