The Kill Team: The murderous reality of the US war in Afghanistan

An important documentary, The Kill Team, opened in New York City and Toronto on July 25, and will play in other North American cities over the next several weeks and months. The WSWS reviewed the film as part of our coverage of the 2013 San Francisco International Film Festival. This is a slightly edited version of that comment.

“The constant pressure to kill or be killed. It is impossible not to get into the insanity of it,” explains US army Corporal Jeremy Morlock in a new documentary about a group of American soldiers nicknamed the “Kill Team.”

US Military Dusts Off Decades-Old 'Readiness' Plans for Russia

As American officials fire off diplomatic salvos at Russia in response to that nation’s purported actual artillery salvos into Ukraine, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said recently that among other actions, the U.S. military is dusting off decades-old plans, just in case.

Resolution Against New Iraq War Passes House in Landslide

The House on Friday overwhelmingly passed a symbolic resolution that calls for the executive branch to attain explicit approval from Congress before deploying troops to Iraq in a "sustained combat role," in what peace campaigners are heralding as an important milestone in efforts to prevent a new war.

IN TIMES OF WAR: A PRAYER FOR PEACE - CLAIRE K. RIVERO

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting Claire's video for three reasons. First, this is a message that needs to get out to the world about how everyone loses in war except the bankers.

Second, the new readers coming in from my return to GCN might wish to hear the whole song (which is heard briefly in the bump music) and see the video

Third, the latest revelations from Edward Snowden include confirmation that the NSA "tinkers" with view counts on YouTube videos to keep videos contrary to the war agenda from going viral.

It Turns Out Hamas Didn’t Kidnap and Kill the 3 Israeli Teens After All

When the bodies of three Israeli teenagers, kidnapped in the West Bank, were found late last month, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not mince words. "Hamas is responsible, and Hamas will pay," he said, initiating a campaign that eventually escalated into the present conflict in the region.

Seven Palestinians killed in protests across West Bank

As Palestinians in Gaza buried the dozens killed during the eighteenth consecutive day of Israel’s relentless military assault by air, land and sea, Israeli fire killed at least seven during protests in the occupied West Bank.

At least ten Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli army and by Israeli civilians in the West Bank since the beginning of the Gaza assault on 7 July as Palestinians in the West Bank and present-day Israel rise up in solidarity with Gaza, where at least 843 Palestinians have been killed since the beginning of the onslaught.

Samantha Power And The Age Of Genocide; Rwanda 1994 vs Gaza 2014

America has once again exercised its political clout in favor of the perpetrators of crimes against humanity; its voice the lone one to vote against a call to investigation by UN Human Rights Council into the Israeli offensive’s violations of international laws. Power and her bosses give their full support to Israel’s continued crimes against humanity and genocide.

Twenty years after Rwanda, the Genocide in Gaza is ignored. Samantha Power has either lost all memory, or she has lost all humanity –but without a doubt, she is completely void of integrity, and complicit in the crimes against Palestinians.

Two decades later, again, prior to November elections, the US is careful to avoid the “G” word. As Israeli law makers call for genocide and indiscriminate killing of Palestinians under siege

Hanabusa Votes to Limit Troops Deployments to Iraq - July 25, 2014

I am proud that the U.S. House of Representatives has again supported my position that we need to limit the way our nation approaches the situation in Iraq. It is our duty to preserve the role of Congress in determining America’s defense efforts and ensure that we act responsibly and with due concern for the men and women who have volunteered to defend our nation. Today’s vote, 370-40, together with the Hanabusa amendment, indicates a clear objection to the nearly 1,000 troops and combat assets that have been deployed in the region. I urge the Senate to take immediate action on both these measures.

Beyond Propaganda: Discourse of War and Doublethink. “When the Lie Becomes the Truth”

Since the attacks of September 11, we are witnessing a transformation of the way the media report the news. They lock us in the unreal. They base truth not on the coherence of a presentation, but on its shocking character. Thus, the observer remains petrified and cannot establish a relation to reality.

Dead Is Dead: Drone-Killing the Fifth Amendment

You can't get more serious about protecting the people from their government than the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution, specifically in its most critical clause: "No person shall be... deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law." In 2011, the White House ordered the drone-killing of American citizen Anwar al-Awlaki without trial. It claimed this was a legal act it is prepared to repeat as necessary. Given the Fifth Amendment, how exactly was this justified? Thanks to a much contested, recently released but significantly redacted -- about one-third of the text is missing -- Justice Department white paper providing the basis for that extrajudicial killing, we finally know: the president in Post-Constitutional America is now officially judge, jury, and executioner.

Israel’s U.S.-Made Military Might Overwhelms Palestinians

The overwhelming Israeli firepower unleashed on the Palestinian militant group Hamas in the ongoing battle in Gaza is perhaps reminiscent of the Algerian war of independence (1954-1962) when France, the colonial power, used its vastly superior military strength to strike back at the insurgents with brutal ferocity.

The Gaza war crimes and the bankruptcy of nationalism

The Palestinian territory of Gaza is the scene of war crimes committed by the state of Israel that defy words. What is to be said about yesterday’s bombing by Israel Defense Forces (IDF) of a UN-run school in the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanoun, which killed at least 15 people and inflicted terrible wounds on 200 more, overwhelmingly women and children? The IDF had been provided the coordinates of the facility and informed on numerous occasions that the area was occupied by large numbers of civilians seeking refuge from endless artillery and air strikes. The IDF shelled it regardless—the fourth time in a week that UN shelters have been targeted.

Britain Admits Selling $12 Billion in Weapons to Israel

This data was supplied by Vince Cable, Britain’s business secretary, who oversees the weapons trade.

I had to do a double-take when reading this information as until now Britain has indicated that the value of its arms sales to Israel are measured in millions, rather than billions.

Washington Is Escalating the Orchestrated Ukrainian “Crisis” to War

Despite the conclusion by US intelligence that there is no evidence of Russian involvement in the destruction of the Malaysian airliner and all lives onboard, Washington is escalating the crisis and shepherding it toward war.

Twenty-two US senators have introduced into the 113th Congress, Second Session, a bill, S.2277, “To prevent further Russian aggression toward Ukraine and other sovereign states in Europe and Eurasia, and for other purposes.” https://beta.congress.gov/113/bills/s2277/BILLS-113s2277is.pdf The bill is before the Committee on Foreign Relations.

Note that prior to any evidence of any Russian aggression, there are already 22 senators lined up in behalf of preventing further Russian aggression.

If they pass that bill, let's grab every congresscritter who voted for it, toss them on a plane, and fly them to Moscow ... one-way.

Debt Rattle Jul 24 2014: Ukraine: What To Do When Growth Is Gone

“The fact that the coalition has fallen apart, that laws haven’t been voted on, that soldiers can’t be paid, that there is no money to buy rifles, that there is no possibility to fill gas storages. What options do we have now?” This is, as per Bloomberg, what US handpicked handpuppet and – now former – Ukraine PM Yatsenyuk told the Kiev parliament earlier today during a speech in which he announced the resignation of his “government”. Several of his coalition partners, including right wing Svoboda, had left the government not long before.

This raises a ton of poignant questions. The first one that came to my mind was: “in whose name are the women and children of Lugansk and Donetsk going to be killed now”? It can’t be in the Kiev government’s name anymore.

How to Find Yourself on the Terror Watch List

Early on in a just-leaked 166-page U.S. government guide to officially declaring someone a terrorist or suspected terrorist, a passage acknowledges that “watchlisting is not an exact science.” The whole enterprise has “inherent limitations,” in part because “analytic judgments may differ regarding whether subjective criteria have been met,” the document states. “Given these realities, the U.S. government’s watchlisting process attempts to safeguard the American people from a TERRORIST attack while safeguarding privacy, civil rights and civil liberties.”

US Invents Reports of Russia Attacking Ukraine Bases

State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf introduced the story to the press at today’s briefing, claiming that the US has secret evidence from “human intelligence information” that the attacks are taking place. The Pentagon concurred, saying such attacks have been going on “for several days.”

During the past several days, there has not been a single report out of Ukraine of an artillery strike against any of their military bases, anywhere in the country. The last such incident was two weeks ago, when rebels fired a BM-21 grad at a military base.

And this is Ukraine we’re talking about, which comes up with its own dubious stories of Russian attacks on a near daily basis. If Russia was carried out concerted shelling against Ukrainian military targets, Ukraine would be harping on about it constantly. They aren’t even alleging anything close to that is happening.

Canada went to war. But why? What really drove a generation to sign up for war

(A book review of Noble Illusions: Young Canada Goes to War by Stephen Dale (Fernwood Publishing,2014; $18.95)

A tidal wave of First World War centenary celebrations -- set to unfold over the next four years -- is now upon us. Canada, like other nations, will spend many millions of dollars commemorating Canadians' participation in the war that was supposed to "end all wars."

But what will these events tell us about the meaning of that cataclysmic war and its lessons for today's world? We can probably guess the answer from statements that key figures have already made.

American choice: genocide or justice?

America today is the main sponsor of the Israeli regime and all its decades-old crimes against humanity.

Just days before Operation Protective Edge opened on July 8 under the cynical pretext of three Israeli teenagers being kidnapped and killed by unknown parties, US President Barack Obama announced an extra $430 million in aid to Washington’s most indulged foreign regime – in Tel Aviv. This is on top of the $3 billion that Israel receives every year for the past decades from the American government siphon of its taxpayers. Hard-pressed American households are getting their drinking water supplies cut off for unpaid utility bills in Detroit and other US cities, but the benevolence of Washington to Israel is like a wellspring that never runs dry.

Marine Veteran Literally Locked Inside A VA Clinic And Forgotten About

Retired U.S. Marine Jeffrey Duck was locked inside a Veterans Affairs clinic and forgotten about when the clinic closed without telling him, WKMG reported Tuesday.

Duck, who had gone to the Orange City clinic in Florida to get a prescription, was taken to a small room where he waited for three hours before realizing everyone else in the building had left for the day and that he’d been locked inside.

Worried he’d be accused of breaking in, he filmed himself walking around the empty clinic on his cellphone and eventually called 911 to get someone to let him out. Duck says he arrived at 1 PM and that he didn’t notice the clinic was closed until 4, even though the stated hours on their website say they’re open until 4:30 every weekday.

US ‘Joke’ Intel Belies Knowledge of Real Culprits in Downed Jet

From smoking gun to silver bullet, but in the wrong direction – Washington.

Seriously, is that it? US national intelligence presented its «evidence» this week on the shoot-down of the Malaysian airliner over Ukraine. Anyone waiting to see a «smoking gun» implicating Russia and pro-Russian militia in eastern Ukraine in the disaster should have been left underwhelmed by the supposed American «killer evidence». Less smoking gun and more like one of those circus pistols that pop out a joke flag emblazoned with the word «Bang!»

Russian army information shows that a Kiev-controlled SU-25 fighter jet was tailing the airliner just before it disappeared from the radar, and that following the crash another unidentified military aircraft was recorded as circling the crash site, strongly indicating that it was surveilling the aftermath.

More evidence has been entered into the files of public record that terrorist organizations such as al-Qaeda, ISIS, and the al-Nusra Front are completely controlled by the CIA and other Western intelligence agencies.

In fact, according to Nabil Na’eem, founding member of the Islamic Democratic Jihad Party and a former commander of al-Qaeda, all current al-Qaeda affiliates are nothing more than offshoots of an overarching CIA terror operation. He also claimed that these groups will eventually be turned against Saudi Arabia, despite the fact that Saudi Arabia has acted as a bankroller and facilitator for them for years on end...

MH17: Cold War Replay?

The most bizarre conspiracy theory surrounding the recent downing of a Malaysian airliner over Ukraine comes from a leading pro-Russian separatist, Igor Girkin.

Relying on second-hand information, Girkin asserted that many of the passengers from the crash had already been dead before the plane had even taken off. His underlings had reported to him that the bodies were badly decomposed and drained of blood. This, of course, was news to all the families of the victims who’d seen off their loved ones at the airport in Amsterdam.

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS! ORIGINAL TEXT ARTICLE

"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits." -- Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the original article for "All Wars Are Bankers' Wars" from which the broadcast and later the video were created. I am reposting it here for the new visitors from my GCN radio show and also for readers coming over the Daily Telegraph, where my comments on the article "The dollar's 70-year dominance is coming to an end"(link now repaired) have drawn some obvious shills insisting that wars have nothing to do with the banks, the US economy is just hunky dorey, and the US dollar has nothing to fear from the Ruble and Yuan.

Clearly the private central banmks are getting very nervous that the world is not only waking up to their financial scam, but recognizes that they, as masters of the medium of exchange, have made themselves masters of the world, and willingly send millions of young people to horrible death and disfigurement to increase their wealth and control.

Veteran Dies Like A Dog In VA Parking Lot; Family Charges Cover-up

Report documents government orchestration of US “terror” plots

A new report issued by Human Rights Watch (HRW) provides a revealing if only partial look at the role of US government informants and agents in instigating and orchestrating fake terrorist plots in the years since the September 11, 2001 attacks.

The 214-page report, produced in collaboration with Columbia Law School’s Human Rights Institute, examines 27 major federal cases. It is based on more than 200 interviews with defendants, members of their families, defense attorneys, judges, prosecutors, government officials, academics and others. There have been more than 500 terrorism-related cases in the past 13 years, and the conclusions of this report apply to many if not most of them.

US intel officials: Russia created 'conditions' that led to plane downing

Senior intelligence officials said Tuesday Russia created the “conditions" that led to the downing of a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet over eastern Ukraine but stopped short of directly linking Moscow to the fatal missile strike.

The officials said-that anti Ukraine government forces, which are backed by Russia, likely fired the missile that took down Flight MH-17 last Thursday, killing all 298 aboard.

However, they made no direct link to Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If at first you don't succeed, lie lie again! -- Motto of the US Government.

Russia did not create the conditions that led too the plane's downing. That little coup last January that forced the elected government from Ukraine (with US and EU support) and replaced it with a Junta willing to make war on their own people created the conditions that led to the shoot down, and we are not ready to dismiss the likelihood that the shoot down of Flight 17 was the false-flag attack mentioned in leaked emails from the Kiev Junta last March as being needed to allow the United States to directly intervene in Eastern Ukraine.

This is probably why FOX News is not allowing comments on this article!

The violence didn’t begin with the three abducted Israeli settlers

Although the media is largely portraying Israel’s actions as defensive,violence in the region did not begin with the kidnapping and murder of the three Israel settlers on June 12, 2014.
In fact, Israel has been kidnapping and murdering Palestinian adults and youth on a regular basis for decades (read about how the conflict was started ), yet this is rarely covered in U.S. news.

As the death toll in Gaza continues to rise, we hope you are continuing to contact your Congress people and Senators, asking them to demand that Israel stop its slaughter in Gaza.

We’ve created a powerful infographic you can share with your friends and family that demonstrates two crucial facts:

1) That the violence in the region began BEFORE three Israelis were abducted on killed on June 12, and

2) That Israel has been killing a shockingly disproportionate number of civilians with its bombs in comparison to Hamas’ rockets, both in the current assault and over the last decade.

US Empire Reaches Breaking Point. “Greatest Threat to Humanity”. Time To End It

The people of the United States must work to end the interventionist violence of the U.S. Empire.

This is Part I of a two part series on American Empire. Part II will focus on the Empire Economy and [how] it is failing to work for most Americans as well as most people of the world.

The historian who chronicles US Empire, William Blum, issued his 130th Anti-Empire Report this week. In it he notes that the US, by far, is seen by the people of the world as “the greatest threat to peace in the world today” with 24% taking that view. Only 2% see Russia as such a threat, and 6% see China.

This should not come as a surprise since, as this map shows, much of the world has been bombed, had their democratically chosen government overthrown and has been occupied by the United States.

Israel’s Iron Dome Isn’t Working: A Weapons Expert’s Warning

Hamas warheads aren’t easy to blow up in midair. The explosive used—TNT—is fairly inert and encased in a thick steel tube. The Tamir interceptors are supposed to blow up when they get close to the rockets and shred them with small steel rods. But the rods spray in all directions, so most don’t even touch the rocket. Many of those that hit may deflect off. The rods don’t have much chance if the timing or direction of the interceptor is even slightly off, according to Lloyd’s calculations.

If Iron Dome isn’t effective, then why have so few Israelis died from rocket fire? Both Lloyd and Postol attribute that mainly to the low firepower of the rockets and to Israel’s excellent early-warning system and network of shelters.

A chessboard drenched in blood

The MH17 tragedy may have been a horrendous mistake. But it may also have been a desperate gambit by the Kiev minions of the Empire of Chaos. By now, Russian intel may have already mastered the key facts. Washington’s predictable modus operandi was to shoot from the hip, igniting and in theory winning the spin war, and doubling down by releasing the proverbial army of “top officials” brimming with social media evidence. Moscow will take time to build a meticulous case, and only then lay it out in detail.

The Big Picture spells out the Empire of Chaos elites as extremely uneasy. Take Dr Zbigniew “The Grand Chessboard” Brzezinski, who as a former foreign policy mentor has the ears of the increasingly dejected White House paperboy. Dr Zbig was on CNN this Sunday challenging Europe’s leaders to “stand up to Putin”. He wonders if “Europe wants to become a satellite” and worries about “a moment of decisive significance for the future of the system – of the world system”.

Guilt By Insinuation. How American propaganda works.

As there are a number of possible explanations, let’s keep open minds and resist Washington’s propaganda until facts and evidence are in. In the very least Washington is guilty of using the incident to blame Russia in advance of the evidence. All Washington has shown us so far are accusations and insinuations. If that is all Washington continues to show us, we will know where the blame resides.
Why hasn’t Washington joined Russian President Putin in calling for an objective, non-politicized international investigation by experts of the case of the Malaysian jetliner?

What are You Trying to Hide, Mr Obama?

So far, Putin’s appeal for safe passage for investigators has been wilfully ignored by the Kiev regime, which has if anything stepped up its violence in the region since the air crash.

Israeli rabbi says killing civilians in Gaza is allowed

An Israeli rabbi has issued a ruling that allows the killing of innocent civilians in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Dov Lior, an Israeli rabbi from the illegal settlement of Kiryat Arba in the occupied West Bank, said in the ruling that it is “okay” to kill innocent civilians and destroy Gaza.

The ruling also says that it is not necessary to check if the people targeted are civilians or non-civilians.

The rabbi’s ruling authorizes all means of targeting the people, such as “denying supplies or electricity.” He further says military forces are allowed “to bomb the whole area according to the discretion of the army...”

Why is Israel afraid of Gaza’s Ark?

On July 11th, 2am local time, Israeli warships fired on the Palestinian/International boat, Gaza’s Ark, which burst into flames and was completely destroyed. We had been working on this project for over two years, buying on old fishing boat, the largest one we could find in Gaza, and converting it into a cargo vessel. It was due to sail out of Gaza in September, carrying goods from the occupied West Bank and Gaza to trade with the outside world, in an attempt to break the illegal blockade of the Gaza Strip.

Building this boat continued the movement to sail boats to and from Gaza and was also part of the much larger movement of nonviolent resistance to the Israeli Occupation of Palestine.

So the question posed is, why was Israel so afraid of our little boat, carrying Palestinian embroidery and boxes of dates, a boat that posed no threat whatsoever to Israeli security? Why did the Israeli Occupation Forces feel it was necessary to destroy it?

To paraphrase Obama: «What is the Kiev regime and its Western sponsors trying to hide?»

Significantly, the Malaysian premier did not make the arrangements through the Kiev regime. He dealt directly with the Donetsk People’s Republic leader Alexander Borodai. The Malaysians disclosed publicly that 282 of the bodies recovered so far were to be transported in refrigerated train carriages to Donetsk and thence to the city of Kharkiv before being flown on to Amsterdam. The flight recorder black boxes were also to be handed over in Donetsk by militia members to an official Malaysian investigative team…

The cost of war is caring for the spouses and children who have to rebuild their lives after the loss of their loved ones. It’s about hundreds of thousands of men and women coming home from war with post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury, many of them having difficulty keeping jobs in order to pay their bills. It’s about high divorce rates. It’s about the terrible tragedy of veterans committing suicide.

It was Putin's missile!

And here's the spin war verdict: the current Malaysia Airlines tragedy - the second in four months - is "terrorism" perpetrated by "pro-Russian separatists", armed by Russia, and Vladimir Putin is the main culprit. End of story. Anyone who believes otherwise, shut up.

Why? Because the CIA said so. Because Hillary "We came, we saw, he died" Clinton said so. Because batshit crazy Samantha "R2P" Power said so - thundering at the UN, everything duly printed by the neo-con infested Washington Post. [1]

Navy’s F-35 Tailhook Passes Initial Tests; Carrier Flights In October

“All flight test objectives were met,” Joe DellaVedova, F-35 program spokesman, said in an email. “We’re not declaring victory but last month (9 to 16 Jan) the F-35 team accomplished 36 successful roll-in arrestment tests at Lakehurst with the redesigned F-35C arresting hook system on CF-3.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They finally fixed that tail hook. I am sure this will give those F-35 pilots a warm and fuzzy feeling of safety as they fly it.

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17: Canada to strengthen sanctions on Russia

Canada is ready to level more sanctions against Russia in the wake of the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 in Eastern Ukraine, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said Monday.

Baird, speaking to reporters by teleconference from London, said new sanctions will be introduced against individuals and entities, as well as entire sectors of the Russian economy. Baird told reporters the new sanctions will be similar to those already imposed by the U.S.

Erdogan has stopped talking to Obama

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he has stopped talking to US President Barack Obama on the phone, amid growing strains between Ankara and Washington over Syria and the Gaza conflict.

Turkey, a fierce opponent of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and an open supporter of armed rebel fighters, felt betrayed when the United States backed away from military action against Damascus in September.

Israel is being defeated in Gaza as it was in Lebanon

One officer, a veteran of Gaza operations, who left the fighting area for a few hours, told Haaretz: “I’ve been to Shujaiyeh before, but I’ve never seen it – or Hamas – like this before. Their equipment and tactics are just like Hezbollah. Missile traps and IEDs everywhere – and they stay and fight instead of melting away like in the past.”

They stay and fight because, unlike Israel, Palestinians in Gaza have no choice, no alternative, no option to go back to a slow death under a crippling siege.

Roseburg VA employees speak out about 'toxic' workplace

Two longtime Roseburg Veterans Affairs Medical Center employees say a vindictive management style has led to rapid turnover and diminished care at the hospital.

The director of women's care, Marcia Hall, has been at the Roseburg VA for 17 years. In the past half dozen years, morale has plummeted, she said.

"It's almost as if the system has been hijacked," she said.

VA doctor Steven Blum said the culture has become "toxic."

"It's abusive to work there," he said.

PLO’s Hanan Ashrawi: ‘Deliberate Massacre’ in Gaza

An emotionally wrought Hanan Ashrawi calls on the world to act immediately in defense of defenseless Palestinian civilians being deliberately massacred in Gaza by Israeli military.

“Look there, there is no human being who cannot be affected by this. Unless you lose the last vestiges of humanity, you cannot allow this to go on. It has to stop,” Ashrawi said of the latest violence in Gaza.

“This morning, it’s nothing short of a massacre, a deliberate massacre. War crimes committed daily. But now there is a deliberate shelling and bombing and destruction of whole areas, of residential areas,” Ashrawi said on “This Week.”

Urge the U.S. Government to stop arming Israel

This summer, civilians have borne the brunt of the violence in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Much of this has been carried out with foreign supplied arms.

Amnesty International is calling for a UN-imposed comprehensive arms embargo on Israel, Hamas and Palestinian armed groups. It is time for a UN-mandated international investigation into violations committed on all sides amidst Israel’s invasion of Gaza and indiscriminate rocket fire from Palestinian armed groups into Israel.

The U.S. government needs to do its part and stop giving munitions, weapons, crowd control devices, and military training to Israel.

When the Government talks of Sanctions

Sanctions only serve the Government, not the People.

When a foreign country, such as Russia, Iran or Cuba, is at the receiving end of sanctions, only the people suffer. Americans suffer because they can’t export as much so they loose money. And the people in those foreign countries also suffer because they cannot receive the benefits of American-made products to make their lives better. In either case both governments benefit. How?

The US government enlarges its reach of power much like a two-bit mafia don: “Do what I say or else. Capisce?” It does not suffer because it produces nothing and its long arm is in every American pocket via the IRS and other tax authorities.

The foreign government is also happy because it too is a two-bit mafia don with its hands on every lever of the economy. When its people cannot progress they’re at its mercy: “Do what I say or no bread. Capisce?”

Naomi Klein: Enough. It’s Time for a Boycott of Israel

It’s time. Long past time. The best strategy to end the increasingly bloody occupation is for Israel to become the target of the kind of global movement that put an end to apartheid in South Africa

Every day that Israel pounds Gaza brings more converts to the BDS cause – even among Israeli Jews. In the midst of the assault roughly 500 Israelis, dozens of them well-known artists and scholars, sent a letter to foreign ambassadors in Israel. It calls for “the adoption of immediate restrictive measures and sanctions” and draws a clear parallel with the anti-apartheid struggle. “The boycott on South Africa was effective, but Israel is handled with kid gloves … This international backing must stop.”

Activists occupy UK government building, demanding arms embargo on Israel

PALESTINE Solidarity activists in London occupied a UK government building yesterday to demand an immediate end to arms sales to Israel.

“By allowing arms exports to Israel to flourish, the UK government is providing material and political support for Israel’s violent oppression and collective punishment of Palestinians, including the current massacre in Gaza.”

“UK companies that export arms to Israel such as BAE Systems and Boeing are profiting directly from Israel’s on-going attacks on Palestinian civilians on Gaza,” the group member said.

“Rather than seeking to whitewash Israeli atrocities,” the campaigner added,”the UK government should listen to the appeals made by Palestinian civil society groups and Amnesty International and impose a military embargo on Israel. How many more people in Gaza have to die before the government will stop arming Israel?”

Downed Airliner: Fake Audio Tape Shows US-Backed Hit to Frame Russia

Within hours of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 crashing into a wheat field in the Donetsk region of eastern Ukraine last Thursday, Western governments and media have gradually stoked a frenzy of accusations that Moscow had a hand in the disaster.

In a devastating twist to emerge over the weekend it now seems that the Malaysian civilian airliner downed over Ukraine was most probably brought down as a result of sabotage by the US-backed Kiev regime.

The purpose of this audacious act of mass murder – in which 298 lives were lost – was carried out with the intention of framing the Russian government. Washington, the chief sponsor of the Kiev regime, must have known about the plot, if not being fully complicit in it.

The numbers divulged by the government in a suit filed by a northern Virginia man challenging the constitutionality of the government’s no-fly list show that the submission of names to the Terrorist Screening Database, from which the no-fly list is compiled, has soared under Obama. In fiscal 2013, the most recent year provided, so-called “nominations” to the list jumped to 468,749 from 227,932 in fiscal 2009. The numbers for the intervening years include 250,847 in fiscal 2010 and 336,712 in fiscal 2012.

And We The People are sick of it.

Our children are worth more than some stack of bank notes cowering in fear at the Ruble and the Yuan. If maintaining the US dollar as the global currency is that important to the bankers then put those owners of the federal Reserve into uniform and send them out to be killed and crippled.

SWAT confronts VA executive in Mesa

MESA, Ariz. - We are learning new information about an incident involving the Mesa SWAT Team and a Phoenix VA Hospital executive.

Brad Curry is the Chief of Health Administration Services at the Phoenix VA Hospital.

He was put on administrative leave in May after reports that BA administrators created and hid secret waiting lists to cover up long wait times for sick veterans.

Curry was at the center of police activity earlier this month after a family member called 911 saying he was suicidal.

911 Caller: "My father is going through a difficult time. He's threatening suicide."

911 Operator: "Does he have any weapons?"

911 Caller: "He has multiple weapons, rifles and a gun."

911 Operator: "What does he have with him?"

911 Caller: "I have no idea. My mom came to my house. We live right across the street."

This 911 call by Curry's daughter sparked a SWAT Team response at his home on July 10.

Ukraine shot down an airliner in 2001 with BUK 300 missile, first they denied it and then had to admit it.

NATO had two airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) planes in the air at the time of MH17 being shot down. One was in Romania and the other in Poland.

What Happened to the Malaysian Airliner? — Paul Craig Roberts

Washington’s propaganda machine is in such high gear that we are in danger of losing the facts that we do have. One fact is that the separatists do not have the expensive Buk anti-aircraft missile system or the trained personnel to operate it. Another fact is that the separatists have no incentive to shoot down an airliner and neither does Russia. Anyone can tell the difference between low-flying attack aircraft and an airliner at 33,000 feet.

Will Russia shoot down West’s lies?

One gets the feeling that Russia has the aim and ability to shoot down these Western lies, and to show up Western politicians and media for what they are: a criminal enterprise of lies and war-making.

They don’t call it the “gutter press” for nothing. But Western so-called news media sunk to new toxic depths over the weekend in their coverage of the Malaysian airliner downed over Ukraine – and the death of all 298 people on board.

The trouble is that this time the Western propaganda machine is up against Russia and its own very capable intelligence.

Russia is not only calmly challenging the West to present its so-called “intelligence evidence.” Moscow is now also saying that it has its own incriminating information as to what really happened to the doomed Malaysian flight.

Tens of thousands march through London: The BBC is silent…

Crowds of tens of thousands gathered in Central London today to protest at the on-going military actions of Israel in the Gaza Strip. Estimates range from 50,000 to 100,000, making this one of the largest demonstrations in recent years in Britain.

Reuters: Clashes Erupt in Paris as Thousands Rally To Denounce Israel Attack on Gaza

Angry Crowds Defy Ban on Pro-Palestinian Protests

Paris — Pro-Palestinian protesters clashed with police in Paris on Saturday as they defied a ban on a planned rally against violence in the Gaza strip.

A Reuters photographer said demonstrators in northern Paris launched projectiles at riot police, who responded by firing teargas canisters and stun grenades.

Demonstrators also climbed on top of a building and burned an Israeli flag. At least one car was set on fire.

A police spokesman said that 38 demonstrators had been arrested by early evening and that the clashes were dying down.

Israel: America’s Frankenstein monster

......From the American perspective Israel looks something like Frankenstein’s monster, a morally dubious and arguably unnatural creation that was stitched together with the noblest of intentions but not much foresight, and that produced a painful litany of unintended consequences. In that analogy we are Victor Frankenstein, who can never unmake his wayward creature, control it or untether himself from it. If I remember the story correctly, they destroy each other in the end.

Reminder: U.S. Plotted to Provoke Shoot Down of Airliner to Create Pretext for War

In 2005, a memo was leaked from a January 2003 meeting between President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair during which Bush, “considered provoking a war with Saddam Hussein’s regime by flying a United States spyplane over Iraq bearing UN colours, enticing the Iraqis to take a shot at it.”

However, this was by no means the first time that the United States considered such methods. Declassified documents from 1962?s infamous Operation Northwoods confirm that the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff planned to, “create an incident which will demonstrate convincingly that a Cuban aircraft has attacked and shot down a chartered civil airliner enroute from the United States to Jamaica, Guatemala, Panama, or Venezuela.”

The Joint Chiefs planned to pack the plane with “a group of college students off on a holiday” in order to fully demonize Cuba and potentially set the stage for a confrontation with the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War.

US Aims at Blowing EU-Russia Rift with Downed Airliner

When assessing culpability, it is not only significant to ask the criminologist’s question: who benefits? It is also significant to observe how the political and media reaction to events quickly takes on an unmistakably scripted pre-ordained formula. In this case, there is more than a pungent whiff of premeditated action-reaction dialectic going on.

American geopolitical interests are best served by this atrocity, by shocking a laggardly Europe into adopting its aggressive sanctions towards Russia, even though that militates against European economic concerns. Shooting down a civilian airliner would ensure blowing a decisive rift between Europe and Russia.

Glenn Greenwald: Why Did NBC Pull Veteran Reporter After He Witnessed Israeli Killing of Gaza Kids?

Glenn Greenwald: I’ve gotten to understand a lot more about how these large media outlets function. I’ve worked with some of them over the last year in the reporting I’ve done. And it really is remarkable, and not hyperbole, that there is nothing that makes major media figures and news executives more petrified than reporting on Israel. I mean, the way in which they become so frightened to do any sort of reporting that could make what they call Israel’s supporters inside the United States angry really can’t be overstated.

the U.S. is the only one that has been blaming Russia for the downing of MH17. No other country, including Germany, New Zealand, Netherlands, etc are blaming Russia. the U.S. sure is beating those war drums. I guess they don't like the fact that Russia does not plan on using the Petro dollar anymore.

NY grandma jailed for violating protection order used to ‘quell dissent’ outside drone base

A New York grandmother was sentenced to a year in jail for violating a protection order filed by an Air National Guard commander against anti-war protesters.

Mary Anne Grady-Flores violated the protection order filed by Col. Earl Evans, prosecutors said, when she stepped on the grounds of Hancock Air Base to photograph a peaceful protest against the use of drones.

The judge imposed the maximum sentence July 10 for criminal contempt of court because the 58-year-old Grady-Flores had failed to pay fines and surcharges imposed by the court in a prior case.

Grady-Flores – the daughter of “Camden 28? Vietnam War protester John Grady — knew she was under court order to stay off base property, so she stood on a nearby roadway to photograph about 20 activists at the Ash Wednesday protest.

Her sister admits Grady-Flores briefly stepped onto a driveway on base property so another protester could show her how to take photos with an iPhone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...Disorderly conduct for blocking the the roadway."?!?!? ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?!?

I so hope this gets appealed and thrown out of court.


Apparently, grandmothers who are completely peaceful scare the excrement out of Col. Earl Evans, and the peaceful expression of opinions contrary to war, more war, and extrajudicial assassinations is not to be tolerated on his watch.

It also is a very informative window on Obama's mindset that one of his most favorite ways to wage war is with drone attacks, which not only take out the alleged "bad guy" with no due process, but also takes out scores of innocent people, either killing them outright, or maiming them for life.

U.S. State Department Blames Hamas for Israel’s Bombing of Children Playing on Gaza Beach

Four Palestinian boys, who were from the same family, were targeted and bombed by Israeli military forces while they were playing football (or soccer) on the beach. The boys were killed nearby the Al Deira hotel, where international journalists have been staying. They appeared to be targeted yet to the United States State Department the children would not have died if Hamas had accepted the ceasefire proposed yesterday.

Was MH17 Sabotaged By An Israeli Security Team At Amsterdam Schiphol Airport?

As the only non-European journalist to cover The Hague inquiry into the Amsterdam crash of El Al flight 1862 (October 1992), which destroyed a Biljmeer district apartment complex, I discovered many aspects of the Israeli security set-up at Schipol International Airport and the role of the Mossad intelligence agency in secret operations there, one of Europe’s business transport hubs. This same airport spy network is very likely involved in the recent crash of Malaysian Airlines flight 17 over the Ukraine. . . .

. . . Once again, this time in the destruction of MH17, there is an Israeli-connected air crash with political ramifications involving Israeli strategic interests, inside Israel exactly when its military launches an invasion of Gaza and in troubled Ukraine, a supplier of military electronics to the IDF.

Rejecting victimhood: the case for Palestinian resistance

I wonder whether, when the settler-colonial army of Israel is pounding Gaza, Palestinians should grab guitars, pianos, and white ribbons, look up at their oppressors flying over their heads in apaches and F16s, and sing a lullaby of peace. Perhaps, then, we can impress Middle East “experts” and “non-violent resistance” -mind you, I am using the V word- butterflies. I wonder, moreover, what authority, defined by what experience, entitles these experts and butterflies to ask us, the Palestinians, to put down our arms. Nonsense.

Superpower - A Rebuke of US Global Economic and Military Superiority

Should citizens trust that their government will keep them safe, a government that keeps secrets, and lies, in the name of national security? Does the simple act of withholding information lead to a world of eroding civil liberties and corruption? Superpower presents a view of US foreign policy, which lies in stark contrast to that depicted by corporate media, popular pundits, and US heads of state. With the fall of the Soviet Union, the US has emerged as the preeminent superpower of the world. Superpower illustrates how the United States has chosen to leverage that position to pursue a grand strategy which will ensure itself unilateral world domination through absolute economic and military superiority. It shows a consistent pattern of government deception.

Is Malaysian Flight 17 the new "Lusitania"


On May 7th, 1915, a German U-Boat U-20 torpedoed and sank RMS Lusitania, a passenger ship operated by the Cunard line.  Like many ships built during that time, Lusitania was heavily subsidized by the British Government and designed to be easily converted into a military auxiliary cruiser in time of war.  Although the United States was officially neutral, Germany declared that Lusitania was being used to transport military cargoes to England, which made her a legitimate target of war. Germany even went so far as to take out ads in the American newspapers warning civilians not to take passage on the Lusitania.



The ad placed by Germany warning passengers not to take passage on the Lusitania

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With the revelation that Flight 17 was directed to a course some 200km north of normal to fly over Donetsk, it is starting to look like the aircraft was set up to be destroyed and the blame dropped onto Russia and the separatists, to start another World War.

Killing Russian Journalists in Ukraine is Organized Effort – Willy Wimmer

There is fear spreading through Europe of the specter of war, fuelled by aggressive war propaganda by the West in their attempt to demonize Russia. In Germany, for the first time, people do not trust their mass media. All over Europe appearing strange fascist parties. The blind drive by the US in pursuit of their geopolitical objectives in Europe and in Ukraine has placed the entire European continent in an unstable and extremely dangerous position.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a good reason for the US to focus their war-making efforts on Europe. During WW2, the United States was the only industrialized nation to escape bombing. For twenty years after WW2, the rest of the world had to come to the United States to purchase the machine tools to rebuild their own industry, and of course, during that time, consumers in other countries had to buy industrially-produced goods from the United States as well. Together with the Breton-Woods agreement forcing the use of the dollar for all global trade, the United States made out like a bandit economically. But over the last 30 years, manufacturing in the United States has declined. At the end of WW2 there were thirty American companies manufacturing TV sets. Today there are none. Asian electronics rule the world. Asian and European cars outclass those produced in America.

The goal for the US Government in WW3 is not only to force the world back to the US dollar but to trigger wars in industrial regions that compete with US industries, to smash them and force the world back into a period of dependence on American manufacturing.

The U.S. and Israel Plan the Destruction of the Nation State of Iraq

The concept of a “Greater Israel”, according to the founding father of Zionism Theodore Herzl, is a Jewish State stretching: “From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates.” Rabbi Fischmann, of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, stated to the UN Special Committee on 9th July 1947 that: “The Promised Land extends from the River of Egypt up to the Euphrates, it includes parts of Syria and Lebanon”, wrote Michel Chossudovsky. Thus “from the Nile to the Euphrates.” Herzl’s detailed thesis was written in 1904.

Neocons Get Ball Rolling On World War III

Obama, Hillary Clinton, the State Department, John McCain and others in government have reached the conclusion Russia was behind the deadly attack on a Malaysian airliner in Ukraine. They have reached this conclusion despite the fact the attack occurred less than 24 hours ago and an investigation has yet to begin.

The Human Price of Neocon Havoc

Whether the tragedy is four boys getting blown apart while playing on a beach in Gaza or nearly 300 killed from a suspected missile strike on a Malaysian Airliner over Ukraine or the thousands upon thousands of other innocent victims slaughtered in Iraq, Syria, Libya and other recent war zones, the underlying lesson is that the havoc encouraged by America’s neocons results in horrendous loss of human life.

The overriding lesson from these tragedies should be that the real villains are people who opt for chaos and war over progress and peace. And, in the case of the Middle East and Ukraine, the greatest purveyors of this unnecessary warfare are America’s neocons.

Russia warns of retaliation over new Western "blackmail" sanctions

MOSCOW, July 17 (Xinhua) -- The Russian Foreign Ministry said here Thursday that Russia would retaliate "asymmetrically but painfully," after the United States and the European Union (EU) announced fresh sanctions against the country.

"We are not going to tolerate blackmail and reserve the right to take measures in response," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The statement said the sanctions, imposed by the U.S. Treasury Department Wednesday and targeting individuals and major Russian firms in the financial, energy and arms sectors, are a "primitive attempt to take revenge for the fact that events in Ukraine are not unfolding in line with Washington's scenario."

U.S. Military Seeks To Brain Scan Troops For "Signs of Potential Betrayal"

Nicholas West
Activist Post

The massive investment in neuroscience undertaken by the U.S. BRAIN project and its sister initiative the Human Brain Project is increasingly taking a turn toward the examination of mental health. In fact, hundreds of European scientists working on the project are threatening a boycott because of this direction. In their view, the initial directive was to be more focused on repairing organic injuries and disorders such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and physical brain damage sustained in accidents. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder would be one area that might involve the military.

However, there is a disturbing trend developing in law enforcement and medicine to use what has been learned about the human brain in order to adopt pre-crime systems and predictive behavior technology.

But could a brain scan become standard procedure to see which troops might be inclined to commit insider attacks?..

Pro-Israeli Mob Goes On Rampage In Paris On Sunday

July 16, 2014 - A group of 150 pro-Israel men went on rampage on the streets of Paris on Sunday. They wielded iron bars, wooden sticks, pepper spray and tear gas canisters, and threw chairs and tables at a pro-Palestinian rally outside of a synagogue. The video footage, also verified by the French police, shows the mob chanting racist slogans while attacking anti-Israeli demonstrators. The French police didn't arrest any member of the group, which is said to be linked to the Jewish Defense League. However, they arrested six pro-Palestinian demonstrators, accusing them of trying to storm the synagogue.

Deliberate or reckless attacks violating the laws of war are war crimes, Human Rights Watch said.
