What we want from our NHS

19 September 2014 — 38 Degrees

Wow! After yesterday’s meeting with NHS bosses in London, they’re in no doubt about what 38 Degrees members want for our NHS.

The History of ISIS Beheadings: Part of the “Training Manual” of US Sponsored Syria “Pro-Democracy” Terrorists By Julie Lévesque

19 September 2014 — Global Research

The recent beheadings of three Westerners, Foley, Sotloff and Haines, at the hands of the Islamic State (ISIS) has sparked a wave of indignation and strong condemnation by Western heads of state.

For anyone aware of what has been truly going on in Syria from the outset of the war in March 2011, there is something unusual in these strong statements, which are now the object of a wave of “humanitarian bombings” under a counter-terrorism mandate directed against the Islamic State.

18 September 2014 — The Electronic Intifada

Less than one month after killing more than 2,100 Palestinians in Gaza, including over 500 children, Israel is hosting its annual drone conference. 

Organized in partnership with the US embassy in Tel Aviv, “Israel Unmanned Systems 2014” offers Israeli military firms an opportunity to flaunt the performance of their products, many of which were tested on Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip this summer. Continue reading this...

Black Agenda Report for September 17, 2014: Naming, Shaming the Black Caucus, These Joes Ain’t Loyal, ISIS, Wayne Pharr

17 September 2014 — Black Agenda Report

Naming-and-Shaming the Black Caucus

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

Silence implies assent, which is why activists in Washington, DC, will loudly and clearly denounce the Congressional Black Caucus for its collective crimes against Black people, social justice and the cause of world peace. The “Shame on the Congressional Black Caucus” will give the Black lawmakers the credit they deserve for supporting Apartheid Israel, working to end Net Neutrality, and militarizing local police.

Who’s Your Daddy, ISIS? By BAR executive editor Glen Ford

17 September 2014 — Black Agenda Report

“ISIS has many, many fathers, all of whom now deny patrimony.”

Let us be clear, if that is possible, about President Obama’s plan to deal with ISIS, the boogeyman of America’s own making. The president last week swore that he would “degrade and destroy” the Islamic State, after having spent three years providing weapons and money to jihadists fighters, including ISIS, in hopes that they would “degrade and ultimately destroy” the Syrian state of president Bashar Assad. So, the Americans set out to destroy one state, in Syria, whose government had never presented any danger to the U.S., and wind up creating another state, a caliphate astride the borders of Syria and Iraq, that openly declares its intention to do battle with the U.S.

Someone’s Already Fighting ISIS: The Syrian Arab Army By Tony Cartalucci

16 September 2014 — New Eastern Outlook

Since 2011, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has waged a relentless war within Syrian territory against what it has said from the very beginning was an invasion of heavily armed, foreign-backed sectarian extremists. In retrospect, the transparently ludicrous nature of articles like the Guardian’s “Syria’s rebels unite to oust Assad and push for democracy” is self-evident. The article would lay out Syria’s claims side by side with the West’s narrative by stating: Continue reading this...
