Understanding ISIS: Islamic State of Iraq and Syria

August 12th, 2015

Zahir Ebrahim

| Project Humanbeingsfirst.org

First, one must comprehend the theory behind fomenting controlled chaos of “revolutionary times” by supporting both sides of the conflict. The concept of Insurgency and counter-insurgency as a war paradigm for sustaining “imperial mobilization” under the cover of controlled chaos is explained in: “Insurgency vs. Counter Insurgency”. Fomenting “revolutionary times” with self-inflicted terror is explained in “Understanding Self-Inflicted Terror”.

The new militant “Islamic State” with “caliphate” galore is only the manufactured progression of going from empire's own stateless antediluvian actors playing their scripted “Taliban - Al Qaeda terrorist” role as public enemy number one of the United States and the civilized world, to antediluvian stateful actors playing their scripted “ISIS - terrorists' expansionist” role as public enemy number one of the United States and the civilized world. Twenty-first century barbarians being brought to power to foment not just the “Clash of Civilizations”, as the erstwhile Jewish political theorist Samuel Huntington at Harvard University, and still ever present “foremost Western scholar of Islam”, Jewish prof. Bernard Lewis at Princeton University had formulated it in the 1990s, but the “Clash between the Civilized World and Barbarians” as Daniel Pipes more accurately couched the empirical manifestations of “militant Islam” after 9/11.

Little-Known Facts About the Fox News Republican Debate

August 12th, 2015

Eric Zuesse

TIME has posted the transcript of the August 6th Fox News Channel Republican Presidential candidates’ debate, and there are a number of interesting features in it that have not generally been covered in the press:

1: After introducing all the contestants in this the first of the Republican Presidential candidates’ debates, FNC’s Chris Wallace turned to FNC’s Brett Baier and said, with no explanation "I think you would call that a home field advantage.” This constitutes subtle acknowledgment that Fox News Channel is, and prides itself on being, the Republican Party’s television network (thus “home field”). Mr. Baier’s reply to that was equally opaque: "It might be. We’ll see,” as if that statement meant something. 2: The first question in the debate was from Baier, and (as Ezra Klein aptly noted) it was specifically selected in order to shame one specific candidate, Donald Trump, who is the only candidate who has not promised to endorse whomever wins the Republican nomination:

John Kerry on the Vietnam War: Earlier and Now

August 12th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

From August 4 - 8, Kerry visited five Asian countries, including the ASEAN Regional Forum in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, ending his trip in Hanoi, Vietnam - enlisting support against legitimate Chinese activities in its own waters, risking direct confrontation to solidify Washington’s military footprint in a part of the world not its own.

He highlighted America’s current relationship with its former foe - ludicrously calling earlier US Southeast Asian naked aggression “a diplomatic failure.”Saying “(t)he war that took place here half a century ago divided each of our countries and stemmed from the most profound failure of diplomatic insight and political vision.”

Assad Honors Syria’s Army

August 12th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

It represents the land component of Syria’s armed forces - its dominant military branch engaged in a heroic struggle against US and Israeli imperialism.

Its origin dates from post-WW I - its modern incarnation since 1945. On July 31, Assad honored it on the 70th anniversary of its founding.

He expressed thanks for over four years of heroically defending the Syrian people and homeland against US recruited, armed, funded, trained and directed death squads sent cross-border to commit horrendous atrocities - to destabilize and topple his government, to continue endless violence and chaos. “Because you embodied an example in defending the homeland and preserving the integrity of its people, the Syrian people have stood side by side with you to repulse the aggressors and to express their pride in you,” Assad said.

Sign the petition: Thank President Obama for pursuing peace with Iran/RESPONSE

August 11th, 2015

Larry Pinkney

RESPONSE from Larry Pinkney to MoveOn.org

I most certainly will NOT sign your petition (below) thanking Drone Man, 'Kill List,' NDAA/indefinite detention signing Barack Obama for more of his smoke & mirror "diplomacy" re Iran or any other nation. STOP being shills for the Democratic Party while simultaneously perpetuating the fake left/right paradigm of divide & conquer carried out by the 'leadership' of both the 'Democratic' and Republican parties!!!!

In the context of the United States, the only thing "historic" about the so-called deal with Iran, is how successfully Obama (and his corporate vomit-stream media clones) continue to be in duping a significant portion of the 'American' people. But this too, is steadily changing.

Irresponsible NYT and CNN Venezuela Bashing

August 11th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Venezuelan Bolivarian democracy shames America’s sham process. Its electoral system is the world’s best, says Jimmy Carter.

Slanderous reporting remains relentless - since Hugo Chavez took office in February 1999, continuing under Nicolas Maduro, vicious Big Lies substituting for hard truths.

On August 7, New York Times editors headlined “Venezuela Tries to Silence Critics.” They outrageously denounced its government for prohibiting two criminals from seeking public office. Leopoldo Lopez and Maria Corina Machado openly call for regime change. They want Maduro forcefully ousted. They want fascist governance replacing Bolivarian fairness. They want Venezuela returned to its bad old days.

Republican Party Gave First Presidential Debate to Fox News as Political Payoff

August 11th, 2015

Eric Zuesse

Millions of especially non-Republicans on Thursday night were disappointed to find that they couldn’t access the first V because they don’t subscribe to the Fox News Channel, the Republican Party’s news channel.

Immediately, Newsweek posted an announcement explaining:

Fox News is making it difficult to watch the first 2016 GOP presidential debate online. If you have a cable account, you can sign in to Fox New's website and watch a live stream here. The Fox News app is available for smartphones and game consoles as well, allowing viewers with cable accounts to watch on the go, but also only if you have a subscription to cable. … Fox is closely protecting the only legal stream option, and heavily restricted the venue's audience.
