US terror-bombing in the battle for Mosul has nothing to do with liberating the city, everything to with destroying it.
A similar strategy is employed in Syria, smashing vital infrastructure on the phony pretext of combating ISIS.
America created and/or supports terrorist groups in both countries and elsewhere - waging war OF terror, not on it.
Civilians in harm’s way are being indiscriminately massacred, residential neighborhoods turned to rubble, terror-bombing burying entire families beneath the wreckage of their homes - media scoundrels ignoring high crimes demanding accountability.
Last week’s mosque bombing in western Aleppo province slaughtered over four dozen worshipers, injured many more. Pentagon authorities lied, claiming an al-Qaeda structure was targeted, not a mosque. Its rubble and death toll proved otherwise.
Russia’s agenda is polar opposite America’s. It’s effectively combating terrorists in Syria.
The dynamic on the ground dramatically changed after it intervened in September 2015 at Assad’s request.
America created and supports ISIS, al-Nusra and other terrorist groups - why they exist. Washington feeds the monster it claims to oppose.
Trump seamlessly continues the agenda his predecessors began - notably the Clintons, Bush/Cheney and Obama.
So-called US war on terror is a made-for-media fabricated hoax. Last September, RT quoted an al-Nusra (al-Qaeda in Syria) commander saying:
“Yes, the US supports” anti-government fighters in Syria. Washington “support(s) the countries that support us.”
Shocking stuff! It’s disturbingly common to label a political opponent another Hitler.
Hillary Clinton vilified Vladimir Putin this way. US officials called Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez another Hitler, among other pejoratives.
Former Mexican president Vincente Fox, former New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman, former Anti-Defamation League head Abe Foxman, among others called Trump another Hitler.
The pro-Erdogan right-wing Turkish tabloid Gunes featured a front-page image of German Chancellor Angela Merkel with a mustache and Nazi attire, calling her “Frau Hitler.”
Erdogan is embroiled in battle with Germany, the Netherlands and other EU countries - ones blocking rallies, urging support for his controversial April referendum.
Americans are ill-governed and ill-served by officials at all levels of government - federal, state and local.
On Monday, clear evidence showed it. Disgraceful witch-hunt McCarthyism was on display for viewers tuning in to see.
Hysterical House Select Committee on Intelligence members disgraced themselves during tediously long testimony by FBI Director James Comey and NSA head Michael Rogers.
Committee members obsessed over nonexistent Trump ties to Russia, his charges about Obama wiretapping him, nonexistent Moscow US election hacking, Putin bashing, and security leaks.
On Wednesday, House Select Committee on Intelligence chair Devin Nunez (R. CA) issued a statement, saying “on numerous occasions, the Intelligence Community incidentally collected information about US citizens involved in the Trump transition.”
“Details about US persons associated with the incoming administration - details with little or no apparent foreign intelligence value - were widely disseminated in intelligence community reporting.”
“I have confirmed that additional names of Trump transition team members were unmasked” - their identities revealed, likely for political reasons.
“To be clear, none of this surveillance was related to Russia or any investigation of Russian activities or of the Trump team.”
The Canadian plan also helps Canadians live longer and healthier than Americans. . . . We need, as a nation, to reexamine the single-payer plan, as many individual states are doing.

The new American Health Care Act has been unveiled, and critics are calling it more flawed even than the Obamacare it was meant to replace. Dubbed “Ryancare” or “Trumpcare” (over the objection of White House staff), the Republican health care bill is under attack from left and right, with even conservative leaders calling it “Obamacare Lite”, “bad policy”, a “warmed-over substitute,” and “dead on arrival.”
The problem for both administrations is that they have been trying to fund a bloated, inefficient, and overpriced medical system with scarce taxpayer funds, without capping its costs. US healthcare costs in 2016 averaged $10,345 per person, for a total of $3.35 trillion dollars, a full 18 percent of the entire economy, twice as much as in other industrialized countries.
Ross Perot, who ran for president in 1992, had the right idea: he said all we have to do is to look at other countries that have better health care at lower cost and copy them.
The Times is America’s leading proliferator of state-sponsored propaganda - providing press agent services for powerful interests, journalism the way it’s supposed to be off-the-table on its pages, why relying on it assures being misinformed.
The Times asked if RT is “more BBC or KGB.” Of course, it’s neither. It produces real news and information, not fake news and misinformation like The Times, BBC and other media scoundrels - paid to lie, not inform.
The Times: “(M)any Western countries regard RT as the slickly produced heart of a broad, often covert disinformation campaign designed to sow doubt about democratic institutions and destabilize the West.”
Fact: It’s an effective antidote to Western propaganda. It reaches around 50 million unique users monthly worldwide - via television, online and mobile devices.
“It’s a world leader among non-Anglo-Saxon international TV news channels,” it explains - for a good reason, because millions of people want real news and information, not rubbish media scoundrels like The Times feature.
During its war on Southeast Asia, America raped and destroyed Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.
Terror-bombing massacred civilians indiscriminately. A decade of merciless war took millions of lives, around eight million tons of ordnance used in Vietnam alone, threefold WW II’s tonnage - about 300 tons for every Vietnamese man, woman, child, infant, the elderly and infirm.
Herbicidal warfare was waged using deadly agent orange. Millions of gallons of dioxin-containing defoliant contaminated over five million acres. Exposure to minute amounts causes serious health problems or death.
Other terror-weapons were used, including napalm, white phosphorous, cluster bombs and depleted uranium.
Titled “Israeli Practices towards the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid,” authors Richard Falk and Virginia Tilley discussed how Israel persecutes and dominates defenseless Palestinians.
Apartheid is a high crime against humanity, ongoing in Israel since its 1948 establishment, hardening over time, worst of all under Netanyahu’s coalition regime.
The authors state their “study was motivated by the desire to promote compliance with international human rights law, uphold and strengthen international criminal law, and ensure that the collective responsibilities of the United Nations and its Member States with regard to crimes against humanity are fulfilled.”
Is this what parents pay $63,000 annually for tuition, room, board and fees - so their children can be ill-served and ill-taught?
Following the 2014 Obama administration Kiev coup, replacing democracy with fascist dictatorship, Harvard expressed concern about nonexistent “Russian aggression.” Some faculty members called for US
Not a word about US-supported putschists seizing power. Nothing about the most brazen European coup since Mussolini’s 1922 march on Rome.
No explanation about a scheme orchestrated in Washington. Silence about a major crisis in Europe’s heartland still ongoing. Trump inherited Obama’s mess, so far not indicating clearly where he stands on Ukraine.
Harvard is at it again. It’s University Library published a fake guide to “fake news, misinformation, and propaganda.”
It recommends using FactCheck.org, Politifact, Snopes.com, Washington Post Fact Checker, and other self-styled fact-checkers, biased against truth-telling on all major issues, acting as censors, trashing reliable alternative sources of news, information and analysis.
