Iraq 2.0: New US Secretary of State Setting the Stage for Regime Change in Iran –  Threatens to ‘Crush’ Iran

After Pompeo’s unveiled “Plan B” for nuclear negotiations—which comes around two weeks after President Donald Trump violated the Iran nuclear accord and placed the U.S. on the path to yet another war in the Middle East—National Iranian American Council (NIAC) president Trita Parsi argued that the Trump administration’s demands are intentionally unrealistic and “clearly designed to ensure there cannot be any new negotiation.”

If Any Other Country Was Shooting Civilians Like Israel, The US Would Be Calling For Invasion By Now

If Any Other Country Was Shooting Civilians Like Israel, The US Would Be Calling For Invasion By Now

The death toll in Gaza increased dramatically on Monday as Israeli Defense Forces opened fire on thousands of Palestinian civilians, killing 41 and injuring at least 1,700, and the United States’ response served as a reminder that if the governments in Iran, Syria, North Korea or Russia had done the same thing, the U.S. would be calling for a full-scale invasion right now. It is hypocrisy at its finest, especially considering the fact that the U.S. has a history of cheering on and aiding protests against foreign governments. In fact, when the mainstream media began sharing reports of protests in Iran in December 2017, President Trump took to Twitter to cheer on the dissidents.

Sanders Rips Bolton and Other Washington Hawks Who Push ‘War and Militarism’ as ‘Answer to Everything’

“This is a man who was a key adviser to President Bush, George W. Bush, in urging him to…invade Iraq because supposedly Iraq had weapons of mass destruction,” Sanders said of Bolton, who Trump selected to be his top foreign policy adviser in March. “As I think most Americans now know, that effort in Iraq was the worst foreign policy disaster in the modern history of this country.” (Plus, the death and devastation it caused in Iraq).

Trump’s Reckless Decision Puts US on Path to War with Iran

Donald Trump has committed what will go down as one of the greatest acts of self-sabotage in America’s modern history. He has put the United States on a path towards war with Iran and may trigger a wider regional war and nuclear arms race. This is not America first, this is Trump leasing out America’s foreign policy interests to the highest bidder. The only parties applauding this move are Benjamin Netanyahu and Mohammed Bin Salman, who have consistently chosen to undermine regional security to advance their own short-sighted political fortunes. Trump’s reckless decision is a betrayal of the national interests of the United States of America that could haunt us for generations.

Americans Bear Direct Responsibility for the Horrific Reality in Gaza

Once again, the Israeli military has turned its guns on Gaza—this time on unarmed protestors, in a series of shootings over the last few weeks. Gaza’s already under-resourced hospitals are straining to care for the thousands of protesters who have been injured, in addition to the 40 who have been killed.

Freedom of Information Act Release Mistakenly Includes US Gov’t. Mind Control Documentation

Freedom of Information Act Release Mistakenly Includes US Gov’t. Mind Control Documentation

The documents themselves are quite bizarre and, honestly, despite reports dismissing them, it is worth remembering that this is exactly what the CIA was working on for years during MKULTRA. That program was supposed to have been shut down after the Church Hearings and other congressional hearings exposed all of the CIA’s clandestine activities at the time many that violated human rights including experimentation on patients and the American population without their knowledge.

The Average American Taxpayer Sent $3,456 to the Pentagon Last Year for Military

As Americans rushed to pay their taxes on Tuesday before the official deadline, peace groups reminded the public of the uncomfortable fact that an “astronomical amount” of the money sent to the IRS each year goes not to funding education or a single-payer healthcare system the U.S. supposedly can’t afford, but straight into the bloated coffers of the Pentagon.

7 Questions About the Syria Airstrikes That Aren’t Being Asked by Corporate Media

The media’s job, we are told, is to ask skeptical questions about the people in power. That didn’t happen in the runup to the invasion of Iraq, and it’s not happening now. Here are the questions that should be asked – not just on the eve of a bombing attack, but every day we continue our disastrous and drifting military intervention in the Middle East.

The War in Syria was a US Intervention Since “Day 1”

The War in Syria was a US Intervention Since “Day 1”

A 1983 document signed by former CIA officer Graham Fuller titled, “Bringing Real Muscle to Bear Against Syria” (PDF), states (their emphasis): Syria at present has a hammerlock on US interests both in Lebanon and in the Gulf — through closure of Iraq’s pipeline thereby threatening Iraqi internationalization of the [Iran-Iraq] war. The US should consider sharply escalating the pressures against Assad [Sr.] through covertly orchestrating simultaneous military threats against Syria from three border states hostile to Syria: Iraq, Israel and Turkey.

There’s a Good Chance We’re Being Lied to About the Chemical Attack in Syria

There’s a Good Chance We’re Being Lied to About the Chemical Attack in Syria

In August 2012, then-President Barack Obama publicly warned the Assad government that the red line for his administration was “a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized,” which would prompt a U.S. intervention. Since Obama drew his red line, the official narrative went something along these lines: Assad decided to give Obama the political middle finger and routinely massacre civilians with banned nerve agents such as sarin gas, even in the face of warnings and hawkish calls for intervention. The latest alleged attack took place over this past weekend in a Damascus suburb in Eastern Ghouta known as Douma, just days after Trump called for the withdrawal of U.S. forced from Syria.
