  • ISIS 101

    Middle East

    Judging by what ISIS actually does and whom its acts benefit, its clandestine associates, and the testimony of some witnesses, ISIS is a complex intelligence operation. Its complexity reflects at least in part the fact that it serves the interests of several countries and that it has more than one objective.

  • Sanctions Imposed on the U.S.?

    USA Politics

    The world is not a chessboard, Mr. Obama. But what you are playing is not even chess. It is dirty; an extremely dirty game, which should be stopped by all means.

  • Killing Ragheads for Jesus

    USA Politics

    “American Sniper” caters to a deep sickness rippling through our society. It holds up the dangerous belief that we can recover our equilibrium and our lost glory by embracing an American fascism.

  • Frack the EU! Washington’s Frozen War Against Russia

    Europe

    For over a year, the United States has played out a scenario designed to (1) reassert U.S. control over Europe by blocking E.U. trade with Russia, (2) bankrupt Russia, and (3) get rid of Vladimir Putin and replace him with an American puppet, like the late drunk, Boris Yeltsin.

  • The Leading Terrorist State

    Europe

    Ever since serious protest broke out in Ukraine in February the Western mainstream media, particularly in the United States, has seriously downplayed the fact that the usual suspects have been on the same side as the neo-Nazis.

  • Legal Imperialism and International Law

    Law is not simply part of the superstructure “reflecting” the power of economic or political institutions: it also guides and directs political and economic institutions, committing material resources to implement imperial doctrines.

  • The Civil Society Ploy

    Can the United States export democracy to another country, the way it exports Coca Cola? Apparently the government, particularly, USAID, and the mass media—think so. But, some tricky issues emerge because the USA—the ‘city on the hill” represent “exceptionalism.”

  • The Syrian saga

    The Syrian situation is extremely complex this being the result of its history, its diverse ethnic groups, its long-lasting repressive regime, and compounded by a decade-long desire of the USA and other Western countries for regime change in that country. And because of the latter factor, much of the mainstream media for the past year or more have misrepresented the turmoil and conflict in Syria, almost in the way it was done in preparation for the war on Iraq.

  • What is “the international community”?

    So what or who is “The International Community?” We hear it all the time from certain political leaders. For example, Hilary Clinton, President Barrack Obama’s Secretary of State, uses the term all the time. “We will take the issue of Iran’s nuclear program [certainly not ours!] to The International Community.” Is this the United Nations? Not exactly.
