America's War on Everything It Claims to Stand For

January 26th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

What kind of nation scorns basic precepts free societies cherish? Mocks them. Operates extrajudicially. Polar opposite what it claims to support. Rewarding its wicked. Most reprehensible. Punishing its best, brightest, most honorable and deserving of praise.

What nation has far and away the world's worst human and civil rights record over a longer duration? Affecting the greatest number of people.

Which one bears more full responsibility for multiple global genocides? At home and abroad.

Which cares only for its rich, well-born and privileged? No others. Which more systematically wants its middle class eliminated? Its working population exploited as serfs.

Rupert Murdoch’s Sky News Portrays Ukraine’s ‘Far Right’ as ‘Heroes’

January 26th, 2015

Eric Zuesse

On January 22nd, Rupert Murdoch’s Sky News (Murdoch founded it, his son James headed it for a while, and their 21st Century Fox owns a controlling stake”“ in it) telecast a puff-piece for Ukraine’s right-wing extremists, several times calling them “heroes” to “patriotic” Ukrainians. This segment of their documentary series “Ross Kemp: Extreme World,” was titled “Ukraine: The Rise of The Right.” In it, Ukraine’s “far right” are described as being patriots who are protecting all of Ukraine from a Russian invasion, and who are therefore being increasingly admired by Ukrainians. It says: “The ultras [ultra-rightists] are actually patriotic young people who are ready to fight — not only on the Maidan, but also at the war for our land. … These men — seen now by many as heroes — are fighting for the Azov Battalion in Mariupol, Maryinka and Iliovaisk.”

Mariupol Shelling: Kiev's Latest False Flag?

January 26th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Previous Kiev false flag attacks suggest Saturday's Mariupol shelling perhaps its latest. It remains to be seen what further evidence discloses.

Throughout months of fighting, Kiev sought to blame Donbas self-defense forces for its crimes of war and against humanity.

Including gruesome atrocities. Use of cluster bombs, chemical and other illegal weapons. Downing MH17.

Systematic shelling of residential and other non-military areas. Recent Volnovakha and Donetsk bus attacks. Willfully murdering civilian men, women and children.

A Personal Note On Jewish Statistics

January 26th, 2015

Link: http://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/2015/1/19/a-personal-note-on-jewish-statistics

By Gilad Atzmon

The British political establishment is in a state of panic. A poll revealed last week that “a quarter of Jews in Britain have considered leaving the country in the last two years and well over half (58%) feel they have no long term future in Europe.” This could be a potential disaster for British political parties. Eighty per cent of the Tories are members of the pro Israeli lobby, The Conservative Friends Of Israel (CFI), and a similar percentage of Labour and Libdem MPs have vowed their allegiance to Israel through their respective Jewish Lobby groups. The Jews are clearly a vital source of funding for British politicians. In fact, it has become hard to imagine what British politics would look like without Jewish Lobby’s money. Though the vast majority of British MPs are friends of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, it has not been established how many of our MPs are friendly with Manchester and Hartlepool.

Lunatics Run the Washington Asylum

January 25th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Never in world history has one nation threatened humanity's survival like America. Wars without end rage.

Against invented enemies. New ones follow with disturbing regularity. Peace is pure fantasy.

Obama wants congressional authorization for unconstrained war. Ignoring international law. Claiming it's to fight IS. One of his many Big Lies.

A companion article suggests Pentagon officials now direct Kiev's war on Donbas. Besides supplying its military with heavy weapons and munitions covertly.

So-called joint US/Ukrainian training operations may be prelude to direct American intervention. With Pentagon forces on the front lines. Waging war close to Russia's border. One major false flag away from potential US/Russian conflict.

Pentagon Directing Kiev' War on Donbas?

January 25th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Washington relies heavily on allies and proxies to advance its imperial agenda. It actively supports and encourages Kiev's aggression on Donbas.

Funding and arming its military. Supplying heavy weapons and munitions covertly. Assuming a local guerrilla force could easily be defeated. Hoped for victory became rout. Earlier last spring and summer. Again a few days after Kiev launched its new offensive last Sunday. More on this below.

A previous article discussed Pentagon plans to deploy US combat troops to Ukraine. For a so-called "training operation." A "first step." Mission creep suggests much more to come.

NATO Commander Lied Claiming Possible Russian Invasion of Ukraine Coming

January 24th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

How many previous times did Big Lies proliferate about hoards of Russians coming? Claimed by US officials. Other Western ones.

Former NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen. Current NATO head Jens Stoltenberg.

The latest on January 22 from NATO commander US General Philip Breedlove. Earlier he suggested the same thing. More on what he said below.

Last August, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki claimed a nonexistent "Russian-directed counteroffensive is likely underway in Donetsk and Luhansk."

January 24th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

World headlines announced Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz's death. At age 90. After being hospitalized on December 31. Suffering from pneumonia.

His half-brother Crown Prince Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud succeeds him. Aged 79. Reportedly suffering from dementia or Parkinson's disease.

Initially Reuters headlined "New king, same oil policy." Changed to "New Saudi king seen holding the line on OPEC policy to keep oil output high."

The Wall Street Journal headlined "Death of King Unlikely to Alter Saudi Oil Policy."

The Financial Times headlined "Saudi Arabia’s new King Salman bids to reassure markets."

AP headlined "Saudi King Abdullah, a Gradual Modernizer, Dead at 90."

Muslim extremism is the legitimate daughter of Arab dictatorships

January 24th, 2015

By Khalid Amayreh,

Today, tyrannical Arab regimes are effectively presenting two stark choices to tens of millions of disillusioned Arab youths from Bahrain to Casablanca: Either they come to terms with the repressive but triumphant police-state fascism, or join the ranks of IS, al-Qaeda or similar violent groups. This is precisely the dilemma behind the outbreak of Islamist violence in the Middle East in recent years.

Arab masses had hoped that the so-called Arab Spring would bring about the long-awaited democratic transformation which most Arabs had been longing for ever since the end of the direct colonialist era in the 1940s and 1950s.

However, the free slaughter of revolutionary forces, as in the Rabaa Square in Cairo and in Syria, as well as the ostensible proclivity of most western countries to revert to the old days of embracing criminal Arab tyrants, convinced Arab youths of the utter futility of counting on western democracy for effecting reforms in the Arab region.

New Proposed Congressional Legislative Sanctions on Iran

January 23rd, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Bipartisan Senate members drafted new legislation. Imposing new sanctions if Iran doesn't agree to US demands by June 30.

Regarding its legitimate nuclear program. With no military component. No evidence suggests one.

It's no different from similar programs in dozens of other countries.

Iran alone is unjustly accused of covert nuclear weapons capability development. A longstanding US/Israeli propagated Big Lie.

Washington and European partners imposed multiple rounds of sanctions. Congressional hardliners want more.

Senators Mark Kirk (R. IL) and Robert Menendez (D. NJ) drafted the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2015.
