President Trump’s Disappearance

April 20, 2017 President Trump’s Disappearance Paul Craig Roberts In my long experience in Washington, vice presidents did not make major foreign policy announcements or threaten other countries with war. Not even Dick Cheney stole this role from the weak president George W. Bush. But yesterday the world witnessed VP Pence threaten North Korea with…

The Mother of all Hypocrisy

Robert Fisk It was the Mother of all Hypocrisy. Some dead Syrian babies matter, I guess. Other dead Syrian babies don’t matter. One mass murder in Syria two weeks ago killed children and babies and stirred our leaders to righteous indignation. But the slaughter in Syria this weekend killed even more children and babies – yet…

Frightening times indeed

Irish Savant — April 15, 2017 For the first time since the mid-sixties I believe nuclear war to be terrifyingly close.

12 April 2017 – the world is once again dragged into war

Thierry Meyssan — Voltairenet.org April 12, 2017 The White House has finally aligned itself with the Coalition composed of the neo-conservatives around the United Kingdom and a variety of multinational companies.

Make America Neocon Again

Gilad Atzmon — gilad.co.uk June 8, 2017 It doesn’t take a military analyst to grasp that the American attack on a remote Syrian airfield contradicts every possible military rationale. If America really believed that Assad possessed a WMD stockpile and kept it in al-Shayrat airbase, launching a missile attack that could lead to a release…

The Impending Clash Between the U.S. and Russia

Mike Whitney — Counter-Punch April 7, 2017 President Donald Trump’s missile attack on the Shayrat Airfield in Western Syria was a poorly planned display of imperial muscle-flexing that had the exact opposite effect of what was intended. While the attack undoubtedly lifted the morale of the jihadists who have been rampaging across the country for the last…

Washington Has Crossed Russia’s Red Line

April 7, 2017 Paul Craig Roberts Washington’s military attack on Syria is unambigiously a war crime. It occurred without any UN authorization or even the fake cover of a “coalition of the willing.” Washington’s attack on Syria occurred in advance of an investigation of the alleged event that Washington is trying to use as its…
