The U.S. is no stranger to interfering in the elections of other countries – L.A. Times, Nina Agrawal

The U.S. is no stranger to interfering in the elections of other countries

L.A. Times, Nina Agrawal, December 21, 2016

Update: President Obama  slapped Russia with new penalties for meddling in the U.S. presidential election, kicking out dozens of suspected spies and imposing banking restrictions on five people and four organizations the administration says were involved.

The CIA has accused Russia of interfering in the 2016 presidential election by hacking into Democratic and Republican computer networks and selectively releasing emails. But critics might point out the U.S. has done similar things.    Continue reading

Who is Afraid of the Iranian Bomb? – By Uri Avnery

Who is Afraid of the Iranian Bomb? – By Uri Avnery

I HATE self-evident truths.

Ideals may be self-evident. Political statements are not. When I hear about a self-evident political truth, I immediately doubt it. The most self-evident political truth at this moment concerns Iran. Iran is our deadly enemy. Iran wants to destroy us. We must destroy its capabilities first.

Since this is self-evident, the anti-nuclear agreement signed between Iran and the five Security Council members (plus Germany) is terrible. Just terrible.

We should have ordered the Americans long ago to bomb Iran to smithereens. In the unlikely event that they would have disobeyed us, we should have nuclear-bombed Iran ourselves, before their crazy fanatical leaders have the opportunity to annihilate us first.

All these are self-evident truths. To my mind, all of them are utter nonsense.    Continue reading

Why the US Lost the Vietnam War- By Robert Freeman

Why the US Lost the Vietnam War –  by 

The U.S was not simply outfought.  It was out-thought.

For all of the self-satisfied voyeurism surrounding the Vietnam War, it’s hard to find a concrete idea about why the U.S. lost.  For more than a decade, the U.S. had declared that it would not let Vietnam fall to the communists.  Yet, Vietnam fell to the communists.  Why?

The absence of a clear explanation is not an accident.  None of the institutions that led the U.S. into the War or prosecuted the War want to be tarred with having lost the War.   They would rather its loss be left ambiguous, murky.  Or worse, blamed on others. …  MORE

Another mass shooting – The inability to deal with Gun Violence in the USA – By Yvonne Sam

Another mass shooting—Another distorted interpretation of Second Amendment Rights—Another inability to deal with Gun Violence.

By Yvonne Sam

America—Oh! say can’t you see—what is happening to thee—Gun violence is eating away at your national soul.

Already battling her own evils America is now caught up in yet another mass slaying. The lesson to be learnt from this ghastly carnage, is that there will be more such shootings. The usual reaction will follow, ones that we have seen and heard far too often:  non-stop media coverage, opinions of weapon analysts, opening up of more debate on gun control, lowering of flags at half mast, moments of silence, and a day of national mourning.  But how often will America mourn?  What America needs most of all is action to lower the gun toll, thereby less mourning.     Continue reading

How Globalism works just like the mafia – By Chris Kanthan

How Globalism works just like the mafia – By Chris Kanthan

NationofChange – | Op-Ed

The next twenty years may be the most significant in modern human history.

Globalism is just like the mafia, but with a lot more complexity and respectability. If you have watched mob films such as The Godfather, you can understand how the world works. For example, in Godfather II, a bunch of mobsters gets together in Havana, Cuba, to celebrate Hyman Roth’s birthday. As the birthday cake is symbolically cut into pieces and distributed, Roth tells the group how Cuba will be split up amongst the guests. Extrapolate this scene to the world, you can visualize how the world works.

Corporations to central banks

Hunger: Venezuela’s People Struggle to Survive – Emma Graham-Harrison – Caracas | The Guardian UK

Hunger Eats Away at Venezuela’s Soul as its People Struggle to Survive

The Maduro regime denies its once oil-rich country is in crisis. But on the streets the desperation cannot be hidden

Emma Graham-Harrison – Caracas | The Guardian UK

Hunger is gnawing at Venezuela, where a government that claims to rule for the poorest has left most of its 31 million people short of food, many desperately so.

As night falls over Caracas, and most of the city’s residents lock their doors against its ever more violent streets, Adriana Velásquez gets ready for work, heading out into an uncertain darkness as she has done since hunger forced her into the only job she could find at 14.

She was introduced to her brothel madam by a friend more than two years ago after her mother, a single parent, was fired and the two ran out of food. “It was really hard, but we were going to bed without eating,” said the teenager, whose name has been changed to protect her.    Continue reading

Examination of the Facts underlying the threatened Acts towards North Korea – By Yvonne Sam

Examination of the Facts underlying the threatened Acts towards North Korea

By Yvonne Sam

Trump’s don’t- mess- with- America rhetoric and hardcore approach is superior to his predecessors’ playbook on foreign affairs.

It is obvious to the most myopic that President Donald Trump is hell bent on breaking free of Obama’s policies. Such became a reality when North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un became the recipient of his threat of “fire and fury” if Pyongyang continued to threaten the United States. After Trump’s comment the dictator weighed in by announcing, via a statement from its army to state-run news, that it is assessing plans to attack Guam, the home of America’s Andersen Air Force Base. Yes, the dictator was on the receiving end of the alliteration that was heard worldwide, but Trump’s spoken words reflect a desire to do, or at best utter something different following three visible years of bipartisan failure on North Korea.    Continue reading

“Get Trump an Atlas”. Trump Wants to Bomb North Korea With Nuclear Weapons.

Geography 101: “Get Trump an Atlas”. Trump Wants to Bomb North Korea With Nuclear Weapons. Where is the Target Country?

A War on North Korea Will Inevitably Engulf South Korea and the entire Northeast Asian Region

By Prof Michel Chossudovsky – Global Research, August 10, 2017

George W, Bush was known for his total ignorance of geography. “Dubya the Geographer: Someone Buy This Man an Atlas” appears in, Dubya Speaks, We Record the Damage.  

Fast forward to 2017: What about Donald Trump who has his thumb on the nuclear button. What is his knowledge of geography.

North Korea: Fire, Fury and Fear – Pepe Escobar | Global Research

North Korea: Fire, Fury and Fear 

Alarm bells ringing as rampant speculation breaks out over Pyongyang’s ‘possible’ miniaturized nuclear warheads

Pepe Escobar | Global Research

Beware the dogs of war. The same intel “folks” who brought to you babies pulled from incubators by “evil” Iraqis as well as non-existent WMDs are now peddling the notion that North Korea has produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead able to fit its recently tested ICBM.

That’s the core of an analysis completed in July by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). Additionally, USA intel believes that Pyongyang now has access to up to 60 nuclear weapons. On the ground USA intel on North Korea is virtually non-existent – so these assessments amount to guesswork at best.      Continue reading
