Trump Vows More Pressure, Sanctions and War on Syria

April 9th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

America has been at war with Syria since launched by Obama in March 2011 - using ISIS, al-Nusra (al-Qaeda in Syria) and other terrorist groups as imperial foot soldiers.

Trump earlier said he “inherited a mess.” His actions so far made a deplorable situation worse - in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and elsewhere abroad, along with domestic governance serving privileged interests exclusively.

He’s a war criminal, a domestic and international law-breaker, a national disgrace, a threat to world peace, stability and security.

Will nuclear war be waged on his watch? The unthinkable could become nightmarishly real, given neocon generals in charge of geopolitics - warmaking their strategy of choice to advance America’s imperium.

Gulf of Tonkin Redux: Trump Launches Naked Aggression on Syria

April 9th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

April 7, 2017, a date which will live in infamy - the Syrian Arab Republic was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval forces of the American empire - with attribution to Franklin Roosevelt’s congressional address following Japan’s December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor.

Based on a false flag CW attack, wrongfully blamed on Syria’s military, Trump launched naked aggression on the country - a despicable act, a heinous war crime, unjustified and lawless, likely more aggression to follow.

The buck stops with him on all issues of war and peace - not Congress, the courts or Pentagon. He’s culpable for authorizing naked aggression on Syria - along with continuing the rape of Mosul and escalating US aggression in other war theaters.

U.S. Government Secretly Is Allied With America's Enemies

April 9th, 2017

Eric Zuesse

[NOTE: On the morning of 11 December 2016, German Economic News headlined “Brutal Power Struggle in the U.S.: CIA Is Targeting Donald Trump” (“Brutaler Machtkampf in den USA: CIA nimmt Donald Trump ins Visier”), and the following essay places that event into its essential broader global and historical context — because the future of America, and of the world, has been shaped by the outcome of this power-struggle that the CIA won, which cannot be truthfully understood outside of this broader context, regardless what happens. PS: The CIA’s alleged allegations in that matter are lies, and here’s how a former British Ambassador told how he knew that they’re lies. If that’s not enough, try this, keeping in mind this, all showing that the CIA and the rest of the military-industrial complex or national-‘security’-state, which rules the U.S., is hardly the public’s friend.]

Everyone knows that jihadists, and people who fund their terrorism against the United States and against other (non-fundamentalist-Islamic) nations, are enemies of every (non-fundamentalist-Islamic) nation, including the United States. However, what isn’t well known is that the U.S. federal government is itself secretly allied with jihadists and their funders — secretly allied with (and dependent upon) the enemies of all nations (including the U.S.) that aren’t fundamentalist-Islamic. Our government is secretly allied with jihadist groups in a number of countries, and is allied especially with the Arab royal families who finance jihadists in all countries (except their own — none of those royals wants jihadists to attack their own countries: their deal with jihadists is for them to attack only other countries).

Even thirteen years after the 9/11 attacks against the U.S. by a team of 19 jihadists — 15 of whom were Saudis — the former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was saying in an email to her friend John Podesta on 17 August 2014, that "we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL [ISIS] and other radical Sunni groups in the region.”

Trump Wants Assad Ousted

April 9th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Replacing him with a pro-Western puppet is what escalating US aggression in northern Syria and attacking its Shayrat airbase is all about.

It’s also about destroying the Syrian Arab Republic, balkanizing it, looting its resources, exploiting its people, and creating longterm war-related violence, instability and chaos, a pretext for America’s regional presence.

Will Trump order shock-and-awe terror-bombing of Damascus, repeating an Afghanistan/Iraq/Libya scenario? Obama bears full responsibility for destroying Aleppo, Syria’s commercial hub. Is Damascus next?

On CNN’s State of the Union airing Sunday, neocon US UN envoy Nikki Haley said “(t)here’s not any sort of option where a political solution is going to happen with Assad at the head of the regime.”

Russia and Iran Threaten Retaliation Against Further US Aggression

April 9th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Russia and Iran accused Washington of crossing unacceptable red lines in attacking Syria - jointly saying they’ll respond to further US aggression, according to Reuters.

A joint statement published by the Ilam al Harbi media outlet said “(w)hat America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines.”

“From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well.”

If Reuters’ report is accurate, the risk of war involving Russia, Iran and their allies against Washington is ominously possible - endangering the entire region and humanity if launched.

Trump’s Psychopathy Now Clear

April 7th, 2017

Eric Zuesse

What type of Presidential candidate, now become the President, would assert and (via his agents, do) all of the following things:

1: Pence presents new healthcare offer to Freedom Caucus The Hill, By Peter Sullivan - Mon. 3 April 2017, 04/03/17 09:33 PM EDT White House officials presented an offer to the conservative House Freedom Caucus on Monday night as they seek to revive the ObamaCare replacement bill.

Vice President Pence and other White House officials presented an idea at the Freedom Caucus meeting to allow states to choose to apply for waivers to repeal two ObamaCare regulations that conservatives argue are driving up premiums.
Those two regulations detail ObamaCare's essential health benefits, which mandate which health services insurers must cover, and "community rating," which prevents insurers from charging sick people higher premiums. ...

Russia Trying to Prevent Escalated War in Syria

April 7th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

In response to Tuesday’s Khan Sheikhoun CW attack, Moscow rejected the US/UK/French draft resolution, calling it “unacceptable.”

No vote was taken, whether coming is unknown. It was introduced to wrongfully blame Assad for Tuesday’s attack, despite no evidence suggesting it - or any other CW incident throughout over six years of Obama’s war.

It’s now Trump’s, naked US-led aggression against a sovereign independent country, using imported terrorists as imperial foot soldiers, supported by terror-bombing, destroying vital infrastructure, massacring civilians - headed for escalation, not resolution.

Headed for Escalated War in Syria?

April 7th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Peace talks are on life-support - no breakthroughs achieved, none likely after Tuesday’s Kahn Sheikhoun chemical weapons (CW) attack.

It had all the earmarks of a false flag incident aimed at perpetuating war, likely escalating it for the same objective as earlier - destroying Syrian sovereign independence, replacing it with pro-Western puppet rule, isolating Iran ahead of a similar strategy against its government.

Imperialism is dirty business, Trump up to his neck in it, perhaps over his head by delegating warmaking issues to neocon generals.

They thrive on endless conflicts. So do hawkish extremists infesting Washington. Resolving wars diplomatically for a new era of world peace is considered heresy.

Horror, Fear, Anger and Disgust…

April 7th, 2017

Gilad Atzmon

In her Forward article yesterday, self-identified “Jewish lesbian leftist” Donna Minkowitz admitted to feeling “horror, fear, anger and disgust” at an invitation to speak at a literary event. “Now, that’s quite a combination of sentiments to feel all at once,” I thought to myself, “How could an invitation to attend an intellectual gathering evoke such negative feelings?”

On 30 April human-rights lawyer Stanley Cohen, history professor Norton Mezvinsky, orthodox Jewish author and whistle-blower Michael Lesher and myself will, in light of my upcoming book Being in Time – A Post Political Manifesto, gather together in Theatre 80, Manhattan to reflect on the collapse of Identity politics, the crisis within new-Left thinking and the future of liberal and progressive thought. We invited Donna Minkowitz to participate in the panel discussion so she could present her Jewish LGBTQ outlook. For some reason Minkowitz got the impression that she was expected to “tout” my new book. On the contrary, Minkowitz was invited to oppose my argument.

Syria Falsely Blamed for Sarin Gas Attack in Idlib Province

April 7th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Numerous times before, Syria was falsely blamed for toxic chemical weapons attacks by US-supported terrorists.

On Tuesday, Reuters said “(a) suspected gas attack by Syrian government or Russian jets killed at least 35 people, including nine children, in the northwestern province of Idlib on Tuesday” - citing the pro-Western so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

On April 4, it reported 58 deaths in Idlib province, including at least 11 children, saying:

A Khan Shaykhun city neighborhood “was bombed with material believed to be gases which caused suffocation and other symptoms, like intense breathing secretion, iris shrinkage, pail, general spasm, and other symptoms appeared on the injured people.”

The incident happened days after Syrian forces were falsely accused of using “toxic substances” in Hama province.
