Warsaw Summit: Western Leaders Ignore Reality By The Saker

11 July 2016 — The Saker

So the much advertised NATO summit in Warsaw finally took place.  It was a total success, at least if the criterion is that the outcome matched the expectations:

  • Poroshenko and Nadezhda Savchenko were invited and treated like a respected guest
  • Russia was condemned for her “aggressions” in Georgia, Crimea and the Ukraine
  • The Poles plastered Warsaw with posters saying “ACHTUNG RU??IA”
  • The Balts each got one NATO battalion to deter the Russian Bear
  • Russia was condemned for not abiding by the Minks2 Agreement
  • Enough hot air was released to worsen global warming by at least 10 degrees

Frankly, I don’t feel like commenting on all this idiocy.  Besides, all these pseudo-decisions never were the true purpose of this summit.  This summit had a totally different objective and that objective too was fully achieved.

Brexit and the return of European militarism

5 July 2016 — WSWS

The European Union has responded to the UK referendum vote to withdraw from the EU, and the resulting intensification of the political, economic and social crisis of Europe, by calling for the militarization of the continent and buildup of its internal security forces. Since the announcement of the result 11 days ago, a number of high-level foreign policy papers have been published that advocate the transformation of the EU into a military alliance with expanded powers of internal repression.

The Real Reason for Turkey’s Shoot-Down of the Russian Jet by Gareth Porter by Gareth Porter

The data supports Putin’s assertion that the shoot-down was prepared in advance due to Russian bombing of Turkey-linked rebels in Syria

The United States and its NATO allies offered a ritual of NATO unity after Turkish officials presented their case that the shoot-down of a Russian jet occurred after two planes had penetrated Turkish airspace.

Ukraine and the MH17 Crash: Washington’s Use of the UN Security Council as an Instrument of Propaganda, “Regime Change” and War By Carla Stea

America Admittedly Behind ISIS “Surge” By Tony Cartalucci

25 May 2015 — Land Destroyer

Taking advantage of a Syrian military stretched thin to protect everywhere at the same time, high concentrations of well-coordinated Al Qaeda forces, based in NATO-member Turkey as well as in US-allies Jordan and Saudi Arabia, have attacked across several fronts. The tactical and strategic gains are minimal compared to the initial stages of the West’s proxy war against Syria beginning in 2011, but the Western media is intentionally fanning the flames of hysteria specifically to break both support for Syria from abroad, and fracture resistance from within.

Cold War II By William Blum

2 April 2015 — The Anti-Empire Report

Cold War 2.0, part I

In last month’s Anti-Empire Report I brought you the latest adventure of US State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki trying to defend the indefensible. She said then: “As a matter of longstanding policy, the United States does not support political transitions by non-constitutional means,” which prompted me to inform my readers: “If you know how to contact Ms. Psaki, tell her to have a look at my list of more than 50 governments the United States has attempted to overthrow since the end of the Second World War.”

The ISIS Described by the US Media as a “Sunni Muslim Militia” is “Made in America”. It has Nothing to Do with Sunni Islam By Prof. Henry Francis B. Espiritu

19 March 2015 — Global Research

isis_smallAs a lifetime student of classical mainline Islamic jurisprudential school of thought called “Sunni fiqh”,  I feel saddened to note how the Western mainstream media succumbed to the Islamophobic propaganda of affixing the epithet “Sunni” to the militia of the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

I can confidently say that ISIS is not Sunni because all that ISIS has done is to contravene the ethical teachings of Sunni Islam.

Media Lens: Love For Libya: 2011-2015

18 March 2015 — Media Lens

Islamic State’s horrific mass beheading of 21 Coptic Christians last month forced a reluctant UK media system to return to Libya, scene of saturation news coverage in 2011.

Then, the media lens hovered obsessively over every Libyan government crime – indeed, over every alleged and even predicted crime – in an effort to justify a Nato ‘intervention’ that was supported by most media and 557 British MPs, with just 13 opposed.
