Conflict in Syria Far From Resolved

August 24th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Russia’s intervention nearly two years ago significantly changed the dynamic on the ground - much of the country liberated from US-supported terrorists’ control, from ISIS, al-Nusra and other groups.

At the same time, US terror-bombing continues, notably in Raqqa, targeting residential areas, massacring civilians daily, likely thousands since the aerial campaign began in early June.

In the last 24 hours alone, local media sources and survivors reported US-led so-called coalition warplanes massacred 78 civilians in three Raqqa neighborhoods.

Homes and infrastructure were targeted, no ISIS or other terrorists at or around areas struck. The attack was cold-blooded murder like so many others in all US war theaters - Nuremberg-level high crimes.

The Nations that Accept Nazism Today

August 24th, 2017

Eric Zuesse

The U.S. Government leads a global operation to make racist fascism ‘respectable’ again.

On 21 November 2014, in a vote at the United Nations on a Resolution opposing a resurgence of the racist-fascist ideology (opposing the ideology that’s commonly called “nazism”) which Resolution was titled “Combating glorification of Nazism, neo-nazism and other practices that contribute to contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia, and related intolerance”, 115 nations voted “Yes” to pass the Resolution, 3 voted “No” to reject it, and 55 voted “Abstain,” meaning they didn’t want to express a view on the resolution. An additional 19 didn’t vote at all on it (decided to absent themselves from that roll-call, for whatever reason — basically, not even saying whether they were neutral on it by voting “Abstain” — just said nothing at all on it).

Trump’s Afghan Strategy: Forever War and Occupation

August 23rd, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Trump’s Monday address on Afghanistan didn’t surprise. What a difference an election makes!

In 2013, he tweeted: “We should have a speedy withdrawal” from Afghanistan. “Why should we keep wasting our money - rebuild the US!”

In 2014, he denounced Obama for “keeping our soldiers in Afghanistan for at least another year. He is losing two wars simultaneously.”

In 2015, he called US Middle East wars a “mess…a terrible mistake. We made a terrible mistake getting involved there in the first place.”

“We had real brilliant thinkers that didn’t know what the hell they were doing. And it’s a mess. It’s a mess. And at this point, you probably have to (stay) because that thing will collapse about two seconds after they leave. Just as I said that Iraq was going to collapse after we leave.”

U.S. Reneges on Its Deal w. China about N. Korea

August 23rd, 2017

Eric Zuesse

On Tuesday afternoon, August 22nd, China’s Embassy in Washington urged the Trump Administration to “correct its mistake” of issuing, earlier on the 22nd, economic sanctions against China, after China had, on August 14th, fulfilled its part of the bargain that China had reached with the Trump Administration about North Korea; and, as Fox News put it on Monday August 14th, "In an unprecedented move against North Korea, China on Monday issued an order to carry out the United Nations sanctions imposed on the rogue regime earlier this month.” On August 12th, U.S. President Donald Trump had threatened China with economic sanctions unless China would agree to and (as Fox News put it) issue “an order to carry out the United Nations sanctions imposed on the rogue regime earlier this month.”

Antifa Extremism

August 23rd, 2017

Stephen Lendman

The solution left wing extremists propose is as toxic as fascism its adherents oppose - the cure as bad as the disease.

Extremism in all forms is dangerous and unacceptable. Antifa elements call themselves anti-fascist, anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobia.

Their militancy makes them dangerous. They’re unrelated to traditional left-wing political activists opposed to violence.

Earlier anti-fascist groups in America called themselves anti-racists. Current Antifa ones demonstrate violently against what they oppose - notably against Trump during his campaign, inauguration and once in office.

Trump’s Afghan Strategy

August 22nd, 2017

Stephen Lendman

On Saturday, AP News said he was mulling options at Camp David with his “top national security aides” - including Mattis, McMaster, Tillerson, top military officials and others.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said he’s “studying and considering his options and will make an announcement to the American people, to our allies and partners, and to the world at the appropriate time.”

Since entering office, he considered options ranging from ending America’s longest war in modern times to greatly escalating it - what he favored in Iraq, Syria and Yemen, along with sending US forces to Somalia for the first time since withdrawn in 1994.

Nothing But Bias from CNN’s Jim Acosta

August 22nd, 2017

Joel S. Hirschhorn

On almost a daily basis I see the unbounded bias of the mainstream media against the Trump Administration. It is morally corrupt and, worse yet, criminally unpatriotic. It is clearly an attempt by liberals and Democrats to undo the legitimate election of President Trump. What I saw the other day was the epitome of this media bias. It was when CNN’s Jim Acosta assailed the new Trump immigration policy by asserting that it was biased in favor of English speakers from the UK and Australia. Why was this particular assertion so clearly utterly stupid and wrong?

At the time I saw this press room interaction between Acosta and White House policy advisor Stephen Miller I was on a cruise. Anyone who has been on a cruise in past decades knows first hand that Acosta was totally and intentionally biased in trying to convince Americans that English speaking as a requirement, among others, for getting into the USA was biased against countless countries other than the two he stated. Why? Because on virtually every cruise ship the many hundreds of officers and staff come from a great many nations other than the USA, the UK and Australia. In fact, virtually none come from those three. What do all of the countless thousands cruise workers have in common? They all speak English.

Media Bias Just as Threatening as President Trump

August 22nd, 2017

Joel S. Hirschhorn

Liberals, progressive and Democrats should think critically about the negative impacts of widespread media bias on American democracy. There simply is no doubt that virtually all mainstream media regularly show their strong bias against president Trump and his administration. These media have convinced themselves that they are working to save American democracy from an incompetent, corrupt and dangerous president. And those on the left eat up the negative coverage, which means more money for the anti-Trump networks, newspapers and magazines. Never mind that he was elected fairly and legally.

It seems that the leftist media would only be happy if Trump was driven out of office by any means. Such a victory would confirm the undemocratic power of a free press that replaces a military coup with a media one..Here is my point: More Americans should seriously consider the larger question of whether such a perversion of freedom of the press undermines our democracy. Why? Because instead of fairly presenting genuine news the opinion loaded negative coverage has the goal of bringing down Trump and overturning the election result. The press establishment overwhelmingly filled with liberals and progressives wanted Hillary Clinton and refuse to accept defeat. After all, despite a mighty effort, the media failed to elect Clinton. It continues to seek retribution by bashing Trump and ignoring the many failings of the Clinton campaign.

French President Macron’s Short-Lived Honeymoon

August 22nd, 2017

Stephen Lendman

The former Rothschild banker, economy minister’s honeymoon began by defeating Marine Le Pen decisively on May 7.

Two weeks later, opinion polls showed 62% of respondents viewed him favorably.

His fall from grace was swift, an early August YouGov poll, showing his approval rating plunged to 36% - the lowest ever for a French president this early in his tenure.

He’s accused of ignoring his core supporters. WikiLeaks published thousands of embarrassing emails relating to his campaign and earlier. Italian psychiatrist Dr. Adriano Segator called him a “dangerous psychopath,” saying “we have a case of full-blown narcissism.”

North Korea Won’t Negotiate with a Hostile US

August 21st, 2017

Stephen Lendman

America needs enemies to advance its imperium - North Korea its favorite East Asian punching bag for nearly 70 years.

Truman’s war never ended. Pyongyang fears America for good reason. It sees its nuclear and ballistic missile deterrents as its best defense against another US imperial war. It won’t relinquish them as long as Washington remains hostile.

According to a transcript AP News obtained of a Tuesday conversation between its deputy UN ambassador Kim In Ryong and Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, the DPRK won’t negotiate away its key deterrent as long as Trump administration belligerence remains a significant risk.
