Cold War 2.0 and the Threat of Nuclear Warfare – James Corbett

The rhetoric that has been spewed in recent years about nuclear disarmament is, of course, was always just that: rhetoric. The US government has never seriously considered giving up its nuclear stockpile, or even renouncing a first-use nuclear doctrine. As Dr. Yuki Tanaka of Hiroshima University explains, the Obama administration has not simply continued the aggressive Bush-era stance on America’s nuclear arsenal, but actually extended it. In reality, the Obama administration has simply reaffirmed and even extended the existing US nuclear policy allowing for a first-strike, offensive nuclear war against its enemies. Find out more about the nuclear threat in the new cold war in this week’s GRTV Backgrounder with James Corbett. TRANSCRIPT AND SOURCES: http://www.corbettreport.com/?p=9084

Say What? Obama Claims US Invasion of Iraq NOT As Bad as Russia’s Annexation of Crimea

President Barack Obama declared the Kiev uprising a moral victory, Crimea’s vote a sham and Russia a brute aggressor, that must be confronted. To prove his points the President cited examples… including comparing the U.S. invasion of Iraq to Russia’s annexation of Crimea.

US ‘Democracy Promotion’ Destroys Democracy Overseas – Ron Paul

US ‘Democracy Promotion’ Destroys Democracy Overseas – Ron Paul

Last December, US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland gave a speech in which she admitted that since 1991 the US government has invested more than 5 billion dollars to help Ukraine…in the development of democratic institutions and skills in promoting civil society and a good form of government. This is the same State Department official who was caught on tape just recently planning in detail the overthrow of the Ukrainian government. That five billion dollars appears to have bought a revolution in Ukraine. But what do the US taxpayers get, who were forced to pay for this interventionism? Nothing good. Ukraine is a bankrupt country that will need tens of billions of dollars to survive the year. Already the US-selected prime minister has made a trip to Washington to ask for more money. And what will the Ukrainians get? Their democracy has been undermined by the US-backed coup in Kiev. In democracies, power is transferred peacefully through elections, not seized by rebels in the streets. At least it used to be.

The US Establishment is Lying about Everything on Ukraine

The US government and the media are lying about everything on Ukraine and the bigger the lies, the more that the entire establishment continues to go ‘all in’ and push all of the chips to the center of the table in this latest orgy of national brainwashing.

‘Make It Hurt’: On the Small-Mindedness of Foreign Policy

The New York Times yet again ignoring history and reducing the terrifying complexity of international politics – and the great global longing for peace – to a lethally simplistic game of winning and losing. It’s the kind of coverage we get in every political crisis, inevitably shutting down whatever collective intelligence we’re capable of manifesting and reducing the public to spectators at a geopolitical wrestling match.

100 Years of War Lies DEBUNKED

100 Years of War Lies DEBUNKED

When Secretary of State John Kerry made his now infamous statement about Russia’s actions in Ukraine, the hypocrisy was immediately apparent to all but the most clueless of viewers. But perhaps Kerry wasn’t so wrong to expect the public to let him get away with such a transparently hypocritical statement. After all, the public have always been happy to go along with every pretext for war presented to them for decade after decade.

Americans Overwhelmingly Oppose US Intervention in Ukraine, Syria, Iran … Or Anywhere Else

Polls show that Americans are overwhelmingly opposed to U.S. military involvement in: Ukraine, Syria, Iran, or anywhere else. Indeed, a poll from Pew in December found that a majority of Americans – more than ever before in Pew’s 50-year history of polling this question – think the U.S. “should mind its own business internationally and let other countries get along as best they can on their own.” We’re sick of war …

(And we’ve been so for years.)

Obama Signs Order Declaring Ukraine Crisis an ‘Extraordinary Threat’ to National Security

On Thursday morning, President Barack Obama signed an executive order which designated the ongoing crisis in Ukraine prompted by a Russian military invasion of the Crimean Peninsula “an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States.” The order allows the administration to impose visa restrictions on Russians and Crimeans which are identified as threats to Ukraine’s security or territorial integrity. The order also paves the way for the imposition of sanctions on individuals the government determines are responsible for “undermining democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine.”

MUST SEE: America’s Long War Against Humanity – Michel Chossudovsky

Michel Chossudovsky details America’s long war against humanity in this talk at the Rosa Luxemburg Conference in Berlin on January 11, 2014. Worldwide militarization is also part of a global economic agenda, namely the application of the neoliberal economic policy model which has led to the impoverishment of large sectors of the World population. The world is at the crossroads of the most serious crisis in modern history. The US has embarked on a military adventure, “a long war”, which threatens the future of humanity. This “war without borders” is being carried out at the crossroads of the most serious economic crisis in World history, which has been conducive to the impoverishment of large sectors of the World population. The Pentagon’s global military design is one of world conquest. The military deployment of US-NATO forces is occurring in several regions of the world simultaneously. The concept of the “Long War” has characterized US military doctrine since the end of World War II. Worldwide militarization is part of a global economic agenda.

US Shows Hypocrisy in Telling Russia To Stay Out Of Ukraine

Washington has threatened Russia several times since Saturday to stay out of Ukraine. President Barack Obama spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin about it over the phone. Then, on Monday, US Secretary of State John Kerry spoke of the unacceptability of invading a sovereign country on phony pretexts in order to assert one’s own interests in the 21st century. But no, he was not speaking about the United States, as one might have thought. RT’s Anastasia Churkina takes a look at the hypocrisy of the US rhetoric towards Russia over the situation in Ukraine.

An Important Second Listen to the “F–k the EU” Ukraine Recording Indicates U.S. Is Running the Revolution

An Important Second Listen to the “F–k the EU” Ukraine Recording Indicates U.S. Is Running the Revolution

At the start of February, a very important conversation between Assistant US Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and U.S. Ambassador to the Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt was leaked, the infamous “f—-the EU” recording. During the clip, Nuland and Pyatt discuss their desired outcome for the crisis in Ukraine. Now that 3 weeks have passed since the leak and events have developed, it is instructive to listen to the recording once again. The recording reveals Nuland and Pyatt discussing whether Vitali Klitschko should be named the deputy prime minister and seems to assume that Arseniy Yatseniuk will become prime minister. Since that conversation, Yatseniuk has, indeed, become prime minister. Anybody that tells you that the US is not running the “revolution” from behind the scenes is blowing smoke.

Ron Paul: US Is Pushing Its Own Agenda In Ukraine; Leave Ukraine Alone!

Why are US government officials so eager to tell the Ukrainians what they should do? Has anyone bothered to ask the Ukrainians? What if might help alleviate the ongoing violence and bloodshed if the Ukrainians decide to re-make the country as a looser confederation of regions rather than one tightly controlled by a central government? Perhaps Ukraine engaged in peaceful trade with countries both to the west and east would benefit all sides. But outside powers seem to be fighting a proxy war, with Ukraine suffering the most because of it.

Turning a Wedding Into a Funeral: Obama Violated His Own Rules with Yemen Drone Strike

President Barack Obama violated his own rules for the use of drone strikes in a December 2013 strike on a wedding procession in Yemen that killed 12 people, a new report from Human Rights Watch says. The US military initially claimed that the procession was actually members of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, then admitted it was a wedding procession, but claimed that most of the people killed in the attack were members of the terrorist organization. But Human Rights Watch says, “The procession also may have included members of AQAP, although it is not clear who they were or what was their fate.” The group went on to say that there is no evidence that members of the caravan posed an imminent threat, and that killing them was a violation of international human rights laws. RT’s Meghan Lopez speaks with investigative journalist Ben Swann about US drone policy and whether the attack was a violation of Obama’s own stated rules.

‘I am a Ukrainian’ Video Exposed As Kony-Style Scam

‘I am a Ukrainian’ Video Exposed As Kony-Style Scam

The ‘I am a Ukrainian’ video is meant to push the idea that the Ukrainian revolt is grass roots, but the video’s origins can be traced back to the U.S. State Department. The clip was produced by the team behind A Whisper to a Roar, a documentary about the “fight for democracy” all over the world, which was funded by Prince Moulay Hicham of Morocco. The “inspiration” behind the documentary was none other than Larry Diamond, a Council on Foreign Relations member. The Council on Foreign Relations is considered to be America’s “most influential foreign-policy think tank” and has deep connections with the U.S. State Department.
