Ukraine's Dr. Strangelove

February 26th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Film buffs may recall Stanley Kubrick's 1964 dark satire titled "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb."

It depicted deranged general Jack D. Ripper's obsession to wage nuclear war - despite no Pentagon authorization. Obama may be lunatic enough to launch one.

The film ends ominously - with nuclear detonations accompanied by popular British singer Vera Lynn's famous WW II "We'll Meet Again" recording.

A previous article discussed Ukraine's deputy foreign minister Vadym Prystaiko briefly. He sounds like Jack D. Ripper.

Interviewed by Canada's CBC Radio The House program, he said "(w)e have to stop (Putin)."

"For the sake of the Russian nation…Ukrainians and Europe. (W)e are preparing for full-scale war."

Open Letter To The Right Honourable Prime Minister: A Staunch Defender of Democratic Values And Human Rights

February 26th, 2015

William Hanna


Israel’s barbaric ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people as was witnessed during
last summer’s Operation Protective Edge.

Are We Allowed To describe Those Responsible For The Above

Deaths As Being Inhuman, Barbaric, War Criminals?

The law regarding anti-Semitic behaviour in the UK

Anti-Semitic behaviour is defined as behaviour that is offensive to anybody who has Jewish heritage, and which threatens, abuses or insults such a person based on his or her Jewish nationality, race or religion. Clearly, such acts are outlawed under an act prohibiting expressions of racial hatred, and if proved to be true, can result in fine, imprisonment or both.

Dear Prime Minister,

In The Name Of Mammon – Jack Straw and Sir Malcolm Rifkind

February 26th, 2015

Gilad Atzmon

In the last few weeks we have witnessed British Jewish leaders relentlessly complaining about ‘the rise of anti-Semitism.’ This morning we learned that two former foreign ministers are at the centre of a huge 'cash for access' scandal. I guess that Sir Malcom Rifkind is not going to help in the current struggle to defy anti-Semitism. Apparently the Jewish Chronicle is not convinced that Jack Straw passes the ‘Kosher’ test.

The Daily Mail reports today:

Former foreign secretaries Jack Straw and Sir Malcolm Rifkind today sought to defend themselves after becoming embroiled in a new 'cash for access' scandal where they both boasted about charging at least £5,000-a-day.

Kiev Junta Plans Renewed Aggression

February 25th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Minsk II resolved nothing. Russia bashing remains intense. Brussels imposed new sanctions. Obama intends more US ones.

Moscow and rebels are blamed for Kiev ceasefire violations. Britain intends getting more involved.

Prime Minister David Cameron is more appendage of US foreign policy than independent UK leader. RT International blasted his war-mongering featuring one Big Lie after another.

He sounds like Obama with an English accent. He's "deploying (dozens of) British service personnel to provide advice and a range of training, from tactical intelligence to logistics to medical care," he said.

"We will also be developing an infantry training programme with Ukraine to improve the durability of their forces."

No Let Up in Intense Anti-Russian Propaganda

February 25th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Its viciousness exceeds anything in recent memory. Big Lies bury hard truths.

A February 20 Office of the Vice President statement said Joe Biden discussed "the latest situation in eastern Ukraine" with (US installed) president Poroshenko and prime minister Yatsenyuk.

He lied claiming "Russian regular troops operating inside Ukraine" supported "Russia-backed separatists" in Debaltseve - "in blatant violation of (Minsk) as well as Ukraine's sovereignty an territorial integrity."

"…Russia cannot continue to hide behind the false claim that these latest military operations are solely the work of local separatists."

Normandy Four in Paris

February 25th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

On Tuesday, Sergey Lavrov met with his French, German and Ukrainian counterparts in Paris.

It's part of Moscow's all-out effort for ceasefire and peace in Donbass.

Lavrov and Putin have done more to resolve things diplomatically than any other world officials.

No two men are more worthy of Nobel Peace Prize recognition no matter how things turn out.

No two are less likely to receive the honor they deserve from a Committee notoriously favoring war criminals. Their struggle for regional peace and stability continues. Lavrov used diplomatic language calling Tuesday's talks "a useful meeting."

Donbass Ceasefire: Relative Calm Before the Storm?

February 25th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Minsk II may be remembered as an interregnum moment before greater conflict resumes. It bears repeating what other articles stressed.

Donbass is Obama's war. He didn't launch it to quit. Stop NATO reports America's Air Force preparing to support Eastern European ground war.

Beefing up US military forces near Russia's borders spells trouble. Ukraine remains in the eye of the storm.

It's just a matter of time before conflict resumes. Donetsk People's Republic Prime Minister Aleksander Zakharchenko sees what's coming.

We're All Zombies

February 25th, 2015

by Robert Bonomo

Night of the Living Dead (1968) - Directed by George Romero

"I have always liked the 'monster within' idea. I like to think of zombies as being us. Zombies are the blue-collar monsters." - George Romero

The most heinous thing a human can do is eat another human. Fear of cannibalism along with the other two great taboos, incest and inter-family violence, are the bedrocks of human culture. Without these taboos there is no human civilization, yet zombie cannibals are everywhere, from the most popular TV shows in the US and Europe to the most played PC games. Everywhere we look there is a zombie dragging his feet looking for human prey. The ubiquitous nature of this meme of semi-human creatures that survive only by breaking the most fundamental of human taboos is a clear indicator of a collective cultural pathology.

Obama’s War-Policies Show a Pattern

[Editor’s Note: Documentation on each of the key points in this news report and analysis can be seen by merely clicking on the link where the given point is asserted. This is being especially noted because many of the facts reported here have not been covered generally in the Western press, and much of what is reported here could surprise some readers anywhere, and thus the documentation is linked-to. Our editors have checked the links and have found all of the allegations to be backed by solid sources. The reader is thus provided the same access to these sources that we do, so as to check what’s being alleged in this article.]

U.S. President Barack Obama has repeatedly employed a tactic of attacking Russia by using fundamentalist and other conservative extremists in a given Russia-allied nation, so as to turn that Russia-allied nation away from Russia, and toward America, and then of trying to crush these very same right-wing extremists who have been so effective in defeating (or at least weakening) the pro-Russian leader in that Russia-allied country. This tactic leaves civil war and enormous bloodshed in the given formerly (or still) Russia-allied nation.

Europeans Want TTIP Trade-Deal, though Obama Blocks Making Its Terms Public

February 24th, 2015

Eric Zuesse

TTIP is a secretly negotiated trade deal between the U.S. and the EU, and all indications are that it will replace each nation’s drug-safety, product-safety, food-safety, environmental, and worker-protection, regulations and laws, placing them into the hands of panels composed of appointees of large international corporations, no longer in the hands of publicly elected officials, no longer in the hands of elected politicians, who need to face voters periodically in order to stay in power. Basically: U.S. President Barack Obama is demanding that European nations weaken their regulations, but has been encountering stiff resistance from some, which has dragged out negotiations.

German Economic News headlined, on 4 February 2015, "TTIP: civil rights complaint alleging secret negotiations,” and reported that Europe's Ombudsman, Emily O’Reilly, said: “American objection to the publication of certain TTIP documents is not a sufficient reason, alone on its own, to withhold information from the European public. The Commission will at all times ensure that exceptions to the basic rights of EU citizens are justified and reasonable whenever there is a limitation on access to documents.” But, she didn’t do anything to enforce her statement; the non-disclosure continued.
