Trump and the MAGA Crowd Embrace the Neocon Plan for Venezuela
Post Date: 2019-02-01 13:19:00 by hondo68
Is it fair to call MAGA neocon lite, or possibly MAGAcons? The fact so few of these establishment labeled white nationalists had anything to say about Trumps illegal bombing of Syria, or the death toll from his war against ISIS, leads me to believe they enthusiastically support intervention in foreign nations, most recently Venezuela. They are not opposed to these illegal actions, which leads one to believe they subscribe to the neoliberal religion, or at least are not opposed to it. From the start, it was obvious Trump was not a noninterventionist. He sincerely believes in using state violence to realize his vision of making America great again, which is to say ...
Trump's Venezuela Fiasco
Post Date: 2019-01-28 10:06:12 by hondo68
Last week President Trump announced that the United States would no longer recognize Nicholas Maduro as president of Venezuela and would recognize the head of its national assembly, Jose Guaido, as president instead. US thus openly backs regime change. But what has long been a dream of the neocons may well turn out to be a nightmare for President Trump.Why did Trump declare that the Venezuelan president was no longer the president? According to the State Department, the Administration was acting to help enforce the Venezuelan constitution. If only they were so eager to enforce our own Constitution!Its ironic that a president who has spent the first two years in office fighting ...
Eisenhower’s Nightmare on Steroids; graduated nuclear escalation v2.0
Post Date: 2019-01-19 15:58:18 by hondo68
President Donald Trumps plan to escalate efforts in Ballistic Missile Defense (BDM), including the introduction of space-based weapons, should not be viewed in isolation.It comes on top of the Defense Departments plan to execute an across-the-board modernization of all our nuclear strike forces. It comes on top of the expansion of NATO under three presidents, despite earlier promises (here and here) to the contrary. It comes on top of the unilateral decision by President George W. Bush to withdraw from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty in June 2002, on top of Trumps threat to withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, and on top of Trumps ...
Mike Pompeo Says the US is a Force for Good in the Middle East. No, Really!
Post Date: 2019-01-11 13:07:50 by hondo68
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the US a force for good in the Middle East. A closer look at the evidence reveals this to be the greatest lie ever told in the era of fake news. The good news is this: The age of self-inflicted American shame is over, and so are the policies that produced so much needless suffering, Pompeo said to an audience at the American University of Cairo, Egypt on Thursday. In just 24 months, the United States under President Trump has reasserted its traditional role as a force for good in this region, Pompeo said. We have rediscovered our voice. We have rebuilt our relationships. We have rejected false ...
Trump Shocker: 'We're Leaving Syria!' Does He Mean It?
Post Date: 2018-12-19 19:08:56 by hondo68
President Trump shocked Washington this morning when he Tweeted confirmation of rumors that he would order the removal of US troops from Syria. According to his spokesperson, the order has already been given. The neocons are not happy, with Sen. Lindsey Graham Tweeting that removing troops is an "Obama-like" move. Will Trump's own staff rebel? What about the fine print? Are we really leaving?
Poster Comment:If Trump does actually get the troops out of Syria, he will be keeping a campaign promise. Bring them home, and put them on the US border!

It will primarily be hosted by Norway. The training event will largely take place in the central and eastern parts of this Nordic country that neighbors Russia, as well as over the skies and in the seas of Sweden and Finland.

The Military-Industrial-Humanitarian Complex: Spreading Western Hegemony Under the Guise of Virtue
Post Date: 2018-10-05 15:56:12 by hondo68
Shakespeare once wrote that the devil can cite Scripture for his purpose. Nowadays, we see the terms humanitarian and democracy abused to justify death and destruction. Traditionally honorable words such as "humanitarian" and "democracy" have come to acquire a darker and more cynical meaning following their misappropriation to justify the invasion of sovereign nations and to promote the spread of Western military and cultural dominance across the globe. The mainstream media, alongside some human rights activists, assist these ventures by helping disseminate mistruths and by tapping into the emotions of fear, anger and revulsion to soften public ...
Syria - Israel Provocation Kills Russian Soldiers - Moscow Will Take Political Revenge
Post Date: 2018-09-18 09:29:58 by hondo68
Yesterday Turkey and Russia agreed on a further de-escalation in Idelb province in Syria (see the update here). This agreement takes away the chance of an imminent wider war in which the U.S. and some of its allies would use a fake 'chemical attack' as a pretext to launch missiles against a large number of Syrian government targets and military positions. A peaceful solution of the Idleb situation is unsatisfying for Israel. The successful Syrian defeat of the Jihadi enemy inside the country would allow Syria and its allies to concentrate their forces against Israel. Israel wants the Syrian government destroyed and the country in chaos. On Sunday September 16 Israel hit an Iranian ...
Can’t We Just Leave Syria Alone?
Post Date: 2018-09-03 19:09:35 by hondo68
Assad was supposed to be gone already. President Obama thought it would be just another regime change operation and perhaps Assad would end up like Saddam Hussein or Yanukovych. Or maybe even Gaddafi. But he was supposed to be gone. The US spent billions to get rid of him and even provided weapons and training to the kinds of radicals that attacked the United States on 9/11.But with the help of his allies, Assad has nearly defeated this foreign-sponsored insurgency.The US fought him every step of the way. Each time the Syrian military approached another occupied city or province, Washington and its obedient allies issued the usual warnings that Assad was not liberating territory ...

Presidents Trump and Putin have just concluded a press conference where although there remained some serious points of contention -- specifically, Iran -- both leaders agreed that their summit was a great start to restoring good relations between the US and Russia.

NEW AMERICAN CIVIL WAR? SOME PEOPLE THINK IT’S ALREADY BEGUN

Leftist revolutionaries pushing US over the edge From celebrities calling on citizens to take to the streets, to members of Congress calling for the public harassment of White House officials, to mob justice at restaurants is the US heading toward a new kind of Civil War? Well, some people think the seeds of a new Civil War have already been sown and in a recent article, University of Tennessee Law Professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds argued in a USA Today column that this new war is indeed well underway. Reynolds was echoing similar comments from political scientist Thomas Schaller who wrote in a recent Bloomberg column that America is at the beginning of a ...
Bombs Away! US Airstrikes Every 12 Minutes?
Post Date: 2018-06-21 20:46:06 by hondo68
President Trump is dropping bombs at a record pace. Even though the US is technically not at war, in the first year of the Trump Administration some 44,000 bombs were dropped overseas. In the entire eight years of the Bush Administration 70,000 bombs were dropped and under eight years of "Peace President" Obama 100,000 were dropped. Trump looks to break the record. With so much attention paid to children being taken from their parents, why no attention to how many kids overseas are permanently taken from their parents by US bombs?

Is Russia Sponsoring Terrorism?
Post Date: 2018-04-26 02:08:06 by A Pole
Despite the imposition of unprecedented sanctions against Russia by the Trump administration and Congress over the past year, President Vladimir Putin only seems more intent on causing grievous harm to international peace and stability. Alongside increased financial sanctions against Mr. Putin and his cronies, there is another arrow in the American quiver that would add diplomatic pressure against Russia: The State Department should consider adding the country to its list of state sponsors of terrorism, alongside its close allies Iran and Syria.

American Airlines warns pilots some Asia flights could be rerouted amid tensions with Russia
Post Date: 2018-04-16 07:23:35 by IbJensen
American Airlines rerouted 3 flights out of more than 6,000 a day amid tensions between the US and Russia. The changes involve flights that generally fly over Russia. The airline resumed the nonstop routes on Sunday. Three Asia-bound American Airlines flights that normally fly over Russia have been rerouted, as the airline assesses growing geopolitical tensions, a source familiar with the matter told CNBC on Saturday. In an internal memorandum sent to pilots on Saturday that was seen by CNBC, the airline warned that some flights into Asia could be rerouted, as relations between Moscow and Washington appear to worsen because of the U.S.-led military intervention in ...
Russia UN envoy 'cannot exclude' war between Russia, US

Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the situation was even more dangerous because Russian troops are in Syria. "We cannot exclude any possibilities, unfortunately, because we saw messages that are coming from Washington," he said. Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia urged the United States and its allies on Thursday to refrain from military action against Syria over a suspected chemical weapons attack and said he "cannot exclude" war between Washington and Moscow. Speaking after a closed-door U.N. Security Council meeting requested by Bolivia over threats of military action in Syria by U.S. President Donald Trump, Nebenzia said ...

President Trump might not feel obliged to await the results of an international investigation into the latest chemical weapons attack in Syria to decide if an attack on President Bashar Assads regime should face a retaliatory strike, the State Department said Tuesday.

Sergei Skripal's cat and guinea pigs are dead
Post Date: 2018-04-06 15:35:17 by A Pole
Two guinea pigs and a cat belonging to former Russian spy Sergei Skripal, poisoned in a nerve agent attack in the UK last month, have died, British authorities have said. The two guinea pigs were found dead in Skripal's house some time [weeks later] after the attack, apparently from dehydration, and a cat was put down after being discovered in a "distressed" state. Police sealed the house after Skripal and his daughter Yulia were discovered unconscious on a bench in Salisbury on March 4. "When a vet was able to access the property, two guinea pigs had sadly died," the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) said in a statement. "A cat was ...

War With Russia? Is This Really What They Want?
Post Date: 2018-03-13 10:17:35 by A Pole
It was said of Roman senator and rigorous proponent of Roman virtue, Cato the Elder, that he would end his speeches in the Senate with the mantra, Cathargo delenda est (Carthage must be destroyed). For Cato and his supporters, the very existence of the North African seafaring merchant power was a dagger pointed at the heart of a Rome and an impediment to its imperial ambitions. In the end Carthage was destroyed literally by the Romans at the end of the Third Punic War (149-146 BC), whereupon its surviving inhabitants were sent into slavery and the city-state was consigned to the proverbial dustbin of history. In 2018 there is a concerted effort underway to bounce the West ...
