In the years immediately following September 11th, 2001, one would occasionally hear exasperated anti-war progressives pointing out that you can’t declare war on a tactic. No, but as the progressive intelligentsia soon realized, you can wage war with a tactic. That is precisely what the West has done. Washington, Europe, Israel, and Saudi Arabia principally […]

The lack of a coherent anti-terrorism strategy in Washington and by extension the West, as emergency services deal with the devastating aftermath of yet another terrorist atrocity in Europe – this time a suicide bomb attack at a concert in Manchester, England – has been thrown into sharp relief during President Trump’s tour of the […]

Borderless ‘War on Terror’—now operated by President Donald Trump—continues to claim innocent lives around the world… but pattern holds that not all victims receive equal attention Contradicting a version of events presented by the U.S. military and reported widely by the corporate press, a human rights group and a journalist in Yemen are citing witnesses […]

On 23 May “False Flag” may have still been a (slight) question mark, despite many signs that pointed to the notorious pattern of the nefarious dark and bloody hands that pull the strings behind Washington’s killings to manipulate public minds towards targets and objectives they have set for the world – the New World Order – NWO – that is. In the meantime, the “False Flag” question mark has largely disappeared. Consider this: *Since 9/11 – and increasingly so – any mass event in the west, notably in Europe and the US, like the pop concert by US singer Ariana Grande in Manchester on 22 May, would be cordoned-off and super secured. How can the terrorist with his artisan bomb (under the arm or under his belt?) get through security? Was he perhaps brought in by the police, or by the secret services, then shot just as they detonated the bomb? – In any case, he is conveniently dead, another witness done away with.

According to The Independent, in the last four-week period the US-led Coalition’s air strikes killed at least 225 people, including 36 women and 44 children in Syria.

Here we have a scoop hitting the mainstream media headlines to eclipse China’s One Belt, One Road summit, the Macron’s inauguration, Syria, never ending North Korea’s missile launches and the Turkish President Erdogan’s visit to Washington. US President Donald Trump is at the centre of a storm. The saga of the alleged Russian connection to Trump’s campaign is once again dominating the news. This time hue and cry was raised over President Trump allegedly revealing top secret/codeword information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting, a day after FBI chief James Comey was fired. The FBI director’s sudden dismissal unleashed reprimands from across the political spectrum, and the report once again quickly drew sharp criticism of the president. Current and former US officials say the divulgence jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State (IS) group.

(Click on the picture for a much larger, expanded and clearer size) Much outrage has been expressed in recent weeks over President Donald Trump’s invitation for a White House visit to Rodrigo Duterte, president of the Philippines, whose “war on drugs” has led to thousands of extrajudicial killings. Criticism of Trump was especially intense given […]

As the highest-level Belt and Road international meeting since the initiative was firstly put forward, the historical event will definitely usher countries around the world into a new chapter to build it together.

U.S. strategy seems to be shifting toward creating a buffer state between Iran and Israel. BEIRUT—Given the rhetoric of most U.S. policymakers, one might conclude that the conflict in Syria is about establishing freedom and democracy in the Levantine state. But no genuine aspiration for democracy ever came from a line-up of allies that includes countries like Saudi Arabia, Israel, Qatar, and Turkey. Seen from the Middle East, American intervention here appears to be aimed at putting the last genuinely independent Arab state under Washington’s sphere of influence—and cutting off a key Iranian ally in the region. Today, after six years of regime-change operations that failed to unseat Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and install a compliant regime in Damascus, the west’s strategy seems to be shifting toward partitioning Syria. Specifically, the new U.S. policy would seek to sever the unimpeded geographic line between Iran and Israel by creating a buffer entity that runs through Iraq and Syria.

According to Hurriyet Daily News, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on May 12, 2017, that the U.S. support of the Syrian Kurds harms the strategic relations between the two countries.

“The Guardian” – Some of the most notorious of the CIA’s operations to kill world leaders were those targeting the late Cuban president, Fidel Castro. Attempts ranged from snipers to imaginative plots worthy of spy movie fantasies, such as the famous exploding cigars and a poison-lined scuba-diving suit. But although the CIA attempts proved fruitless […]
