Russia a Threat to US Imperial Interests

Stephen Lendman

Had Putin not intervened responsibly against US-supported terrorists in Syria, all might have been lost, Iran awaiting the next onslaught.

Committed to defeating terrorism in Syria to prevent its spread to Russia’s heartland, Putin stepped up efforts responsibly, more strongly allied with Iran and yet to be determined aid from China, likely short of direct military involvement.

Russian warplanes and cruise missiles now attack terrorist positions in Syria from Iranian territory. Black Sea warships firepower destroyed “a command post and a terrorist base near the village of Dar Taaza as well as a production site of mortar ammunition and an arms depot in Aleppo province,” according to Russia’s Defense Ministry.

Its military might is a direct threat to America’s sought unchallenged regional dominance. So is Putin’s determination to defeat the scourge of US-supported terrorism.

  Aleppo Boy Story: Stunt to Blame Russia, Urge Escalated War

Stephen Lendman

Little Omran Daqneesh is being used, the story about him gone viral - thinly veiled propaganda to blame Russia and Syria for Obama’s naked aggression against a nation threatening no others.

It’s a way to further demonize both countries and enlist public support for greater aggression than already. Ignored are tens of millions of corpses from endless US imperial wars, from the republic’s inception to today - nameless, faceless victims of America’s rage for global dominance, no matter the mounting body count to achieve it. Imperialism works this way, America its leading exponent. Media scoundrels support its viciousness instead of condemning it, the public carpet-bombed with misinformation and Big Lies, hard truths kept under wraps.

All wars are based on deception and lies. Hard truths expose them. Bread and circuses keep most people distracted.

  Russia Won’t Let International Terrorism Triumph in Syria, China to Help

Stephen Lendman

A lot rides on defeating US imperialism in Syria. The fate of the region and beyond hangs in the balance.

If Syria goes, Iran is next, a war if initiated by Washington far more potentially consequential and devastating.

Iran’s population alone makes it an important regional country - four times the size of Syria at around 80 million. Imagine the possible war-related death, injury and displacement toll.

Transforming the Islamic Republic into a US vassal state would give America and Israel unchallenged Middle East dominance.

  Lead Attorney In Anti-Clinton DNC Fraud Case Mysteriously Found Dead

John Ashe and Shawn Lucas

Call it conspiracy theory, coincidence or just bad luck, but any time someone is in a position to bring down Hillary Clinton they wind up dead. In fact, as we noted previously, there’s a long history of Clinton-related body counts, with scores of people dying under mysterious circumstances. While Vince Foster remains the most infamous, the body count is starting to build ominously this election cycle - from the mysterious "crushing his own throat" death of a UN official John Ashe, to the latest death of an attorney who served the DNC with a fraud suit. As GatewayPundit's Jim Hoft reports, on July 3, 2016, Shawn Lucas and filmmaker Ricardo Villaba served the DNC Services Corp. and Chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz at DNC’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., in the fraud class action suit against the Democrat Party on behalf of Bernie Sanders supporters (this was before Wikileaks released documents proving the DNC was working against the Sanders campaign during the 2016 primary).

Flashpoint in Ukraine: How the US Drive for Hegemony Risks World War III by Stephen Lendman

Synopsis by Clarity Press

Flashpoint in Ukraine: How the US Drive for Hegemony Risks World War III provides insight into today's gravest geopolitical crisis since WW II. Possible global war looms. Viewed from the perspective of Western mainstream media, the crisis arose due to pro-democracy activists overturning a brutal dictatorship, which led swiftly to Russian incursion into Ukraine and annexation of Crimea. Viewed from the perspective of the 22 highly-credentialed analysts who have contributed to this anthology, it’s an entirely different story. Obama's pivot is global, in pursuit of unchallenged worldwide dominance, leading to multiple direct and proxy wars. Neocon- dominated Washington seeks to marginalize its Russian and Chinese rivals, surrounding both countries with US bases. Ukraine is in the eye of the storm, the crown jewel of NATO eastward expansion, the last step in Washington's drive to incorporate all former Soviet republics and Warsaw Pact countries into NATO and install missile defense sites on Russia’s very border.

THE 2001 ANTHRAX DECEPTION The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy by Graeme MacQueen

review by Prof. Edward Curtin

The anthrax attacks that followed those of 9/11 have disappeared from public memory in ways analogous to the pulverization of the Twin Towers and World Trade Center Building 7. For the towers, at least, ghostly afterimages persist, albeit fading like last night’s nightmare. But the anthrax attacks, clearly linked to 9/11 and the Patriot Act, are like lost letters, sent, but long forgotten. Such disappearing acts are a staple of American life these days. Memory has come upon hard times. With The 2001 Anthrax Deception, Professor Graeme MacQueen, founding Director of the Center for Peace Studies at McMaster University, calls us back to a careful reconsideration of the anthrax attacks. It is an eloquent and pellucid lesson in inductive reasoning and deserves to stand with David Ray Griffin’s brilliant multi-volume dissection of the truth of that tragic September 11th. MacQueen makes a powerful case for the linkage of both events, a tie that binds both to insider elements deep within the U.S. government, perhaps in coordination with foreign elements.
