  Syrian Insurgents Violate Ceasefire

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

It was too good to last. On day one, insurgents violated ceasefire calm. Blame Washington's dirty hands. It manipulates everything going on.

by Stephen Lendman

 

Previous articles stressed Washington's longstanding regime change plans in Syria. Independent sovereign states aren't tolerated.

  Iran Nuclear Talks

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

On April 14 and 15, Istanbul will host so-called P5+1 countries. They include the five permanent Security Council members - America, Russia, China, Britain, and France - plus Germany. 

 

According to Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, Baghdad will host more talks at a mutually agreed on date.

Media Scoundrels Promote War

  Media Scoundrels Promote War

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Syria is target one, then Iran. The road to Tehran runs through Damascus. Western-backed insurgents can't match Assad's security forces.

 

In 2011, Libyan killer gangs had air force support. Without NATO, they'd have been routed.

Israel Declares War on Gunter Grass

  Israel Declares War on Gunter Grass

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Grass touched the right nerves. He deserves praise, not condemnation. Nonetheless, he's vilified for discussing Israel's open secret. It's nuclear armed and dangerous.

 

Iran's also threatened. Millions of lives are at risk. Grass explained. Denunciation followed.

The Winds of War

  The Winds of War

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

When Washington plans regime change, wars are waged if other methods fail. 

 

For over a year, Western-generated violence ravaged Syria. Assad remains firmly in control. As a result, expect war. All signs suggest it.

George Soros Targets Syria

  George Soros Targets Syria

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Soros' Open Society Foundations pretend to be liberal. Their claimed mission is to "work to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens."

 

Scoundrels Assail Gunter Grass Truths

  Scoundrels Attack Gunter Grass Truths

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Touching the most sensitive nerves has risks. Nearly always hostile responses follow. 

 

Criticizing Israel is the third rail of US politics. It's also largely off limits in scoundrel media managed news, op-eds, and editorials. 

America's Fiscal Cliff

  America's Fiscal Cliff

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

America's weak economy shows further deterioration. According to former Fed Governor Kevin Warsh, "(t)he fiscal cliff in early 2013 - when the government stimulus spending and tax relief are set to fall - is not misfortune. It is the inevitable result of policies that kick the can down the road."

Obama Wreaks Duplicity

  Obama Wreaks Duplicity

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Like most in Congress, he serves wealth and power alone. People needs don't matter. Rule of law principles are spurned.

 

Peace is deplored. War is official policy. So are other duplicitous foreign policies for unchallenged global dominance.

Reality in Occupied Palestine

  Reality in Occupied Palestine

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Gaza's attacked regularly. Dozens of West Bank incursions occur weekly. Police state harshness and arrests follow.

 

In the week ending April 5, one Palestinian was killed and dozens injured, including 18 children. They were nonviolently commemorating Land Day.

Draconian Cybersecurity Bills

  Draconian Cybersecurity Bills

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Bipartisan complicity's involved in hyping cyber threats. At issue is promoting draconian cybersecurity legislation. 

 

Obama supports congressional effects. Internet freedom's at stake. So are other civil liberties.

The Pain in Spain

  The Pain in Spain

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Ireland, Portugal, Italy, Belgium, are Spain replicate Greece in slow motion, gain speed, and head toward a similar train wreck. France, the Netherlands, and other troubled EU economies follow close behind.

 

US Belligerency Risks Global War

  US Belligerency Risks Global War

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

The business of America is war. Since WW II, permanent war for unchallenged global dominance became policy.

 

The Pentagon calls it a "long war." Dick Cheney said it won't end in our lifetime. GHW Bush called it a "New World Order." Nations are ravaged one at a time or in multiples.

Gunter Grass Addresses Israel's Nuclear Threat

  Gunter Grass Addresses Israel's Nuclear Threat

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Writer, poet, playwright, sculptor, artist, and Nobel laureate Grass is regarded as Germany's most celebrated author.

  Israel Plans Theft of 10% More West Bank Land

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Israel occupies Gaza, East Jerusalem, and the West Bank illegally. Its settlements, closed military zones, tourist sites, and commercial areas control over 40% of the West Bank, including its most valued resource rich parts - notably water. 

 

Palestinian Hunger Strikers for Justice

  Palestinian Hunger Strikers for Justice

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Hana Shalabi's ordeal highlights what many others endured previously and dozens do now. Only they know the physical and emotional toll.

 

Who else understands the willingness to die for justice? Who'll suffer and risk it? Who'll challenge an implacable foe unconcerned if they live or die?

Friends of Syria Declare War on Assad

  Friends of Syria Declare War on Assad

Republican Paul Ryan's Budget: Cruel and Unusual Punishment

by Stephen Lendman

 

What Democrats endorse isn't much better. Timing mostly differs to get past November elections.

 

For starters, Obama and Democrats agreed to the following cuts over the next decade:

Hana Shalabi: Not Quite Free at Last

  Hana Shalabi: Not Quite Free at Last

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

After ignoring her entire hunger striking ordeal, her lawless detention, and weeks of Israeli ruthlessness, The New York Times finally acknowledged she exists, but little more.

 

The View from Istanbul

  The View from Istanbul

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

So-called "Friends of Syria" aren't at all friendly to most Syrians. Syrian National Council/Free Syrian Army hostility is visible in daily violence they commit.

Washington's war on Iran includes cyber attacks, other sabotage, targeted assassinations, deadly explosions, sophisticated satellite, drone, and other type spying, bogus accusations, a virtual blockade, hostile saber rattling, multiple rounds of sanctions, and attempts to cripple its central bank and oil industry.

 

Obama Plans Regime Change in Syria

  Obama Plans Regime Change in Syria

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

International law prohibits interfering in the internal affairs of other states. For Washington, it's official policy. Post-9/11, multiples countries were targeted, including Iran and Syria.

 

Bahrain: Imagining the Unthinkable

  Bahrain: A Case Study in Despotism

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

In summer 2010, sporadic protests began. By mid-February last year, major ones erupted. From then to now, they challenged repressive rule nonviolently. They continue daily. At issue is King Sheikh Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa's regime.

 

Imagining the Unthinkable

  Imagining the Unthinkable

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

The combination of America's rage for war, its nuclear arsenal, and global delivery systems makes the unthinkable possible - nuclear war.
