Putin: Sanctions Violate International Law

November 15th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

US-imposed sanctions are illegitimate by any standard. EU countries are pressured to impose their own. Harming their own self-interest.

Other countries are bullied to comply. Threatened with reprisals or worse.

Heavy-handed strong-arming is longstanding US policy. America's 1977 International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) is way over-the-top. No legitimate society would tolerate it.

Letting presidents claim unusual, extraordinary, or non-existent foreign threats. Declare national security priorities. At times a national emergency. Regulate commerce accordingly.

Take full advantage against sovereign independent states. Iran, Syria, China and Russia among others.

Justifiable Rage in Palestine

November 15th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

Ruthless Israeli persecution is longstanding. Palestinian rights don't matter. Treated like subhumans.

Ignored by Western leaders. Supporting Israeli high crimes against peace. Genocidal slaughter. Barbarism writ large.

Taking so much before reacting. Erupting. Largely nonviolently. Stone-throwing is largely symbolic.

Palestinian children young as five are systematically abused. Israel is a UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) signatory.

Brazenly violating its principles. Subjecting young children to torture. Other cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment.

Depriving them of liberty lawlessly. Arbitrarily. Trying them in military tribunals. The only nation doing so.

Jet Fighter in Malaysian Airlines MH17 Flight Path Just Before Crash

November 14th, 2014


"Going by the intelligence available, it is my opinion that a shooting down by a surface to air missile remains the most likely scenario. But we are not closing our eyes to the possibility that things might have happened differently." Fred Westerbeke, head of criminal investigation into MH17 crash, SpiegelOnline, Oct 27

New analysis indicates that one, possibly two jet aircraft were near Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 just before the plane was shot from the sky killing 298 passengers and crew. This bolsters the theory that a jet fighter was responsible for bringing down the aircraft shifting the likely focus to the United States backed Ukraine government.

The new analysis was reported by RT today. Sergey Melnichenko, CEO of Aviation Safety Consultancy and Analysis Agency, released findings based on data from the Rostov, Russia radar station near the Ukraine border. The data tracking radar covered a period before and after the crash.

Psycho Killer

November 14th, 2014

From: Timothy Gatto

If you are squeamish, I wouldn't read this article. This isn't a treatise on how wonderful life is and how we can change the World. The facts are, we can't change anything. Change may come, but it might not be the change you long for. I believe this nation, along with the rest of the World is in a tailspin with psychopaths running the show.

As far as I'm concerned, you might as well sit back and enjoy the ride. In my case, I have pulled the plug on the mainstream media. I'm sick of their propaganda and fear mongering. The talking heads on the networks are completely out of their minds. The drivel that they get from politicians that they pass off as interviews make me want to vomit. They listen to lies and spin and never confront these full-blown psychopaths. If that passes for "news" I have had enough.

Kiev Plans Escalated Aggression

November 14th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

Fascist regimes operate this way. Kiev deplores peace. Democracy in any form. Fundamental rule of law principles.

Breached unaccountably. Over and over again. Operating with full US-led NATO support and encouragement.

Western supplied weapons and munitions. Soviet era stockpiles.

Making a bad situation worse.

Pouring gasoline on a raging inferno. Assuring protracted conflict. Lying about pursuing peace.

In mid-September, Ukraine's Defense Minister Valery Heletey said:

"We reached agreements in closed talks, without media, about…weapons that we currently need."

Duplicitous US State of Emergency with Iran

November 14th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

No just cause exists. Now 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.

NYT: Propaganda Bullhorn Rag Sheet

November 14th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

Times managed news misinformation repeats with disturbing regularity. Often not rising to the level of bad fiction.

It bears repeating what other articles stressed. So-called news claimed fit to print isn't fit to read. Propaganda rubbish substitutes.

Previous articles discussed fake Russian Ukrainian invasions. With troops, tanks, artillery and other equipment. Baseless Big Lies. Claims without corroboration.

None exists. Fabricated rubbish only. Big Lies substituting for hard truths. Maliciously claiming nonexistent Russian invasions.

The latest in a shameless Times feature story. Headlined "Fears Rise as Russian Military Units Pour Into Ukraine," saying:

"Tanks and other military vehicles pouring over the border from Russia into eastern Ukraine."

"Nightly artillery battles in the region’s biggest city, Donetsk, and reports of fighting around another regional capital."

Kiev's War Without Mercy

November 13th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

Washington bears full responsibility for Ukrainian crisis conditions. Rogue EU states share it.

Supporting and encouraging Kiev's war on its own people. Premeditated naked aggression. Without mercy.

Committing high crimes against peace. Using banned terror weapons. Targeting civilian neighborhoods.

Donbas freedom fighters reported "irrefutable evidence" of a weapon used similar to white phosphorous.

It burns flesh to the bone. Keeps burning until entirely consumed or deprived of oxygen.

The Hague and Geneva Conventions categorically prohibit chemical warfare. Including toxic agents.

Evidence shows Kiev used unidentified poison gas. Causing first-degree chemical-inflicted eye burns, alcoholic-like intoxication, bodily lacerations and fainting.

Media scoundrels say nothing. Ignore what demands headlines. Including banned cluster bombs munitions use.

Recognizing Palestinian Self-Determination

November 13th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

A universal right. "(B)ased on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples," according to the UN Charter, Article 1.

A fundamental human right. "Everyone…entitled to all" Universal Declaration of Human Rights "freedoms…"

"(W)ithout distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status."

"(O)n the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty."

An estimated 134 countries recognize Palestinian statehood.

Sweden the latest to join ranks with others. The first EU country to do so. In October, British MPs overwhelmingly expressed support.
