Syria warns any attempt to enter Syria without permission will be considered an attack   The Council on Foreign Relations believes Syrian concerns about the United States violating its national sovereignty are irrelevant. The globalist organization that instructs the State Department in foreign policy decisions on Thursday said that since Assad has demonstrated he is unable to govern and […]

Obama Wants New ISIS War Plan ASAP | 1310 …   Sound the bugle! Get the press to march along; we are going to war. Again! Enemies r ‘us, and for a long time with the killing of bin Laden, aJihadi fatigue hadset in. With the apparent shriveling up of the Al Qaeda menace, America’s threat-defining […]

Some Arabs wish to see Israel crush any semblance of Palestinian resistance. Ask any Arab ruler, and they will tell you of the great sacrifices their countries have made for Palestine and the Palestinians. However, both history and present reality are testaments, not only to Arab failure to live up to the role expected of […]

The Islamic State is the pretext. Syria is the target. At issue is regime change. It’s replacing its sovereign independence with pro-Western stooge governance. It’s wanting unchallenged regional control. It’s wanting Big Oil exploiting its resources. It’s wanting Iran isolated. It’s aiding Israel’s Greater Middle East agenda. It’s making the world safe for war profiteers. […]

Salafis are the most violent, crazed fundamentalist Muslims. For example, both ISIS and Al Qaeda are Salafis. ISIS and other salafi terrorists represent a very small percentage of Muslims. PBS estimates Salafi jihadists constitute less than 0.5 percent of the world’s 1.9 billion Muslims (i.e., less than 10 million). As we’ve been warning for more than a year […]

There’s more than one Dr. Frankenstein responsible for this monster. The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is being touted as the newest “threat” to the American homeland: hysterics have pointed to Chicago as the locus of their interest, and we are told by everyone from the President on down that if we don’t attack them – i.e. go back into Iraq (and even venture into Syria) to root them out – they’ll soon show up on American shores. How is this supposed to work? Well, you see, that monster who beheaded James Foley had a British accent, and there are reports of more than a few Brits (and Americans) traveling to Syria to fight on behalf of ISIS. So these jihadi “internationalists” could always just fly back to either Britain or the US, where another 9/11 would shortly be in the works. Let’s put aside the FBI statement that, while Americans abroad may be in some unspecified degree of danger, ISIS represents “no credible threat” to the continental United States. If we take the ISIS-threatens-us-at-home war propaganda seriously wehave to believe Western law enforcement agencies, with all the tools at their command – including near total surveillance of online and telephonic communications worldwide – have no idea what dubious characters have traveled to Syria via, say, New York or London, and would in any case be powerless to prevent their return.

Middle East crisis: We know all too much about the cruelty of Isis – but all too little about who they are Now President Obama has seen the next US reporter to be threatened with beheading, will he blink?     For centuries, governments told their soldiers and their people to “Know Your Enemy”. The […]

    Alright, not everything. And no, not you, smart-arse. Still, it’s been alarming to be reminded over the past month just how delusory much western public conversation on Hamas is. A common perception is that Hamas are in essence recalcitrant fundamentalist extremists, hell-bent on destroying Israel by any means possible. Virulently anti-semitic, misogynist and genocidal, they […]

    In an action that can only be described as a terrorist murder, Israeli warplanes killed the wife and baby son of Hamas military commander Mohammed Deif, in a targeted air strike Tuesday night. A Hamas spokesman confirmed the deaths of Widad Deif, 28 years old, and her baby son Ali, eight months, along […]

U.S. Wants to Bomb ISIS In Syria … Maybe We Should (cough) First Stop ARMING THEM?   If We Stop Arming, Funding and Training Terrorists, then Maybe We Won’t Have to Bomb Them Later     U.S. foreign policy is schizophrenic. The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff says we need to attack the Sunni militants […]

In a previous report titled, “Growing Mayhem – US Operating on Both Sides of Syrian-Iraqi Border,” it was reported that (emphasis added): Clearly, the answer, left for readers to arrive at on their own, is that these “successful” US airstrikes in Iraq must be carried over into Syria – where mission creep can do the rest, finally dislodging the Syrian government from power after an ongoing proxy war has failed to do so since 2011. After arming and aiding the Kurds in fighting ISIS in Iraq, the US will attempt to make a similar argument regarding the arming of terrorists in Syria and providing them direct US air support to defeat ISIS – and of course – Damascus. In less than 24 hours, the New York Times would report in its article, “U.S. General Says Raiding Syria Is Key to Halting ISIS,” that: The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria cannot be defeated unless the United States or its partners take on the Sunni militants in Syria, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Thursday.

TCP : Israeli fighter airplanes launched airstrikes on Nosairat and Deir el-Balah areas on the dawn of Friday and Al-Qassam Brigades announced on its official website that they hit Ben-Gurion Airport east Tel Aviv with an M75 rocket, official sources told Youm7. Israel announced a state of alert at the airport, according to Qassam. Five more […]

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier warned that the establishment of an independent Kurdish State on Iraqi territory could further destabilize the Middle East. German foreign policy on Iraq reflects a growing consensus among continental European countries who are pushing back against Anglo-American Middle East and European hegemony, said analyst and nsnbc editor, Christof Lehmann. He […]

Another journalist exposes MH17 false flag There has been much commentary concerning the downing of the MH17 plane in Ukraine. Strangely enough, whenever the US position is presented it is not backed by credible evidence, but presented as fact nonetheless. The opposite view – that it was not the Russians who shot down the plane, as the actual evidence suggests – has not been presented so often, and when it has action has been taken against those who say it – reports are pulled, journalists have their communications intercepted, etcetera. Here William F. Engdahl, political expert, who has taken the effort to study the evidence available, beyond social media accounts. He list what is not, shares his opinion of what happened to the Malaysian Airlines plane and gives insight into possible motivations and why the unsubstantial claims do not hold water. “The mainstream Western media coverage of the MH17 event is totally lacking the sort of serious, cautious investigative journalism which used to exist only a few years ago. Rather than err on the side of caution before rushing to judgment in a situation that could easily trigger a new Cold War or worse, CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and most EU media outlets have simply quoted Kiev government officials as if they were the only credible sources.

The U.S. Department of Defense has released translations of a number of Iraqi intelligence documents dating from Saddam’s rule. One, a General Military Intelligence Directorate report from September 2002, entitled “The Emergence of Wahhabism and its Historical Roots”, shows the Iraqi government was aware of the nefarious purposes of the Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia, often known […]

The neocons who plunged the U.S. into the disastrous Iraq War never say they’re sorry. Instead, it’s all about how their idea was great but President Bush bungled the implementation or how the war was “won” but President Obama chose defeat. Still, the real neocon “victory” could be their success in inflicting endless chaos on […]

    As the people of Gaza find momentary respite to survey the impact of Israel’s brutal terror, our ‘leading’ media show no let-up in its selective demonisation of Hamas. You don’t have to support Hamas to see the way in which its vilification is being used to mitigate Israel’s mass crimes and justify Western support. Nor do you need approve armed violence at all […]

The frostier their relations are with the US, the more likely they are to sympathize with the Palestinians     Since the Israeli offensive against Gaza began, images of Palestinian children murdered in their homes and schools and bombs exploding in neighborhoods have outraged people around the globe. Many governments have followed the United States, […]

Wars in an imperialist democracy cannot simply be dictated by executive fiat, they require the consent of highly motivated masses who will make the human and material sacrifices. Imperialist leaders have to create a visible and highly charged emotional sense of injustice and righteousness to secure national cohesion and overcome the natural opposition to early death, destruction and disruption of civilian life and to the brutal regimentation that goes with submission to absolutist rule by the military. The need to invent a cause is especially the case with imperialist countries because their national territory is not under threat. There is no visible occupation army oppressing the mass of the people in their everyday life. The ‘enemy’ does not disrupt everyday normal life – as forced conscription would and does. Under normal peaceful time, who would be willing to sacrifice their constitutional rights and their participation in civil society to subject themselves to martial rule that precludes the exercise of all their civil freedoms?
