When others do it, its terrorism; when Americans do it, its national defense. When others do it, its a war crime; when Americans do it, its collateral damage. When others do it, its torture; when Americans do it, its enhanced interrogation. When others do it, its unprovoked attack; when Americans do it, its shock and awe. When others do it, its imperialism; when Americans do it, its global defense of freedom. When others do it, its lying propaganda; when Americans do it, its breaking news on CNN. When others do it, they go to hell; when American do it, they go to heaven.

The U.S. military tried to cover up the Talibans shooting of a U.S. general on Thursday in Kandahar. What other Afghan debacles is the Pentagon hiding?

Did Saudis, CIA Fear Khashoggi 9/11 Bombshell?
Post Date: 2018-10-15 11:34:46 by Deckard
Authored by Finian Cunningham via The Strategic Culture Foundation, The macabre case of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi raises the question: did Saudi rulers fear him revealing highly damaging information on their secret dealings? In particular, possible involvement in the 9/11 terror attacks on New York in 2001. Even more intriguing are US media reports now emerging that American intelligence had snooped on and were aware of Saudi officials making plans to capture Khashoggi prior to his apparent disappearance at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last week. If the Americans knew the journalists life was in danger, why didnt they tip him off to ...
With the Saudis, Trump Shows Timidity
Post Date: 2018-10-15 10:00:44 by Deckard
If a foreign journalist living in America and writing about the Iranian government's noxious policies were murdered by agents of Tehran, the president of the United States would take it as evidence of the need for tough action. Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, however, was a Saudi writing about the Saudi government, which is a U.S. ally. After Khashoggi disappeared while visiting Riyadh's consulate in Istanbul, Donald Trump was a portrait in timidity. "We want to find out what happened," he bleated more than a week later. "He went in, and it doesn't look like he came out." What happened is pretty clear. Since Khashoggi entered the building October ...

Post Date: 2018-10-12 12:49:16 by IbJensen
US Ambassador to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison is a highly placed diplomat. Her words, whatever they may be, are official, which includes the ultimatums and threats that have become the language increasingly used by US diplomats to implement the policy of forceful persuasion or coercive diplomacy. Bellicose declarations are being used this way as a tool. On Oct. 2, the ambassador proved it again. According to her statement, Washington is ready to use force against Russia. Actually, she presented an ultimatum Moscow must stop the development of a missile that the US believes to be in violation of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty). If not, the American military ...

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - The devil is alive and well and working overtime to undermine the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis says. In fact, the pope is so convinced that Satan is to blame for the sexual abuse crisis and deep divisions racking the Church that he has asked Catholics around the world to recite a special prayer every day in October to try to beat him back. (The Church must be) saved from the attacks of the malign one, the great accuser and at the same time be made ever more aware of its guilt, its mistakes, and abuses committed in the present and the past, Francis said in a message on Sept. 29. Since he was elected in 2013, Francis has made clear that he ...

Daniel Craigs impending departure from the 007 franchise and the role of James Bond has led to chatter as to who will portray the iconic character next. While many fans of the series have used social media to encourage a more inventive approach when it comes to casting future installments, for instance selecting Idris Elba to be at the helm or casting a female Bond, producer Barbara Broccoli is confident there will not be a gender switch. Bond is male, she told The Guardian. Hes a male character. He was written as a male and I think hell probably stay as a male. And thats fine. We dont have to turn male characters into ...
Pompeo Arranges Mass Starvation of Iranian People
Post Date: 2018-10-05 09:06:51 by Deckard
Prior to George W. Bush illegally rolling into Iraq based on a passel of lies, Bill Clinton oversaw Papa Bushs medieval sanctions on the country. The sanctions were not intended to stop Saddam Hussein from building WMDs as we were told by The New York Times and The Washington Post. They were put in place to starve the Iraqi people, deny basic medical supplies, and turn the country into a failed state. The process resulted in the death of half a million Iraqi children. Madeline Albright, Clintons Secretary of State, went on national television and said the murder of 500,000 Iraqi children was a price worth paying. Now we have Mike Pompeo, Trumps secretary of state, ...

We need to talk frankly about our rapid population growth in Africa if we want to beat poverty
Post Date: 2018-09-23 09:47:55 by Willie Green
I think about the future of my continent in terms of three questions: Are Africans healthy? Do they have access to a good education? And do they have opportunities to apply their skills?Millions more Africans have been able to answer yes to these questions in recent years. But theres an elephant in the room. One of the keys to keeping this progress going is slowing down the rapid rates of population growth in parts of the continent. But population issues are so difficult to talk about that the development community has been ignoring them for years.Population growth is controversial because, in the past, some countries tried to control population growth with abusive policiesPopulation ...

Almost immediately after hitting publish on my last article about how the so-called Resistance to the Trump administration doesnt actually resist Trumps most pernicious agendas in any meaningful way, I saw an awesome video clip proving that there is at least one woman out there providing real opposition to Trump where it matters. A think tank is an organization wherein highly-paid academics pour their collective brainpower into coming up with convincing arguments that it would be good and smart to do something evil and stupid. At one such think tank, the Hudson Institute, former John Bolton advisor and current Mike Pompeo lackey Brian Hook had his neocon cuddle ...

Armageddon Rides In The Balance

For some time I have pointed out the paradox of the American liberal/progressive/left being allied with the CIA, FBI, military/security complex and deep state. Now leftist Ann Garrison has noticed the paradox of this alliance. She concludes that the left has lost its mind. https://www.globalresearch.ca/we-love-the-cia-or-how-the-left-lost-its-mind/5653450 Indeed, it has. Out of its hatred of Trump the left has united with the forces of evil and war that are leading to conflict with Russia. The lefts hatred of Trump shows that the American left has totally seperated from the interests of the working class, which elected Trump.

Post Date: 2018-09-12 11:09:52 by Deckard
Source: Whitney Webb WASHINGTON Less than two decades after the attacks of September 11, the U.S. government has now effectively allied with the Al Qaeda terrorist group it has long blamed for planning and executing those attacks, which still remain the worst terror attacks to have ever taken place on U.S. soil. Despite the U.S. having launched the war in Afghanistan, the invasion and occupation of Iraq, and the years-long War on Terror as a means of allegedly countering Al Qaeda and its affiliates, the past year has revealed several instances in which Washington has been making deals with, protecting, and even (indirectly ...
