 Let’s Bomb Libya Again

15.08.2015 | 00:00 | Brian CLOUGHLEY

The British prime minister, David Cameron, places great emphasis on how he is regarded by the public at home and internationally. His personal promotion machine is extensive and highly-paid and his staff feed the media diligently with what they imagine to be positive slants on his character and actions (and with carefully selected photographs of his pretty wife). They provide advance copies of his speeches to favoured journalists with the annoying consequence that news broadcasts rarely report what the prime minister has just said on a topic. They are futuristic and use the infuriating phrase «the prime minister will say today that» he will propose something or other.

 Meet ‘Moderates’ U.S. is Supporting in Syria: They’re al-Qaeda

13.08.2015 | 00:00 | Eric ZUESSE

Increasing evidence is coming in that the groups the U.S. is trying to install into power in Syria are actually contending groups of Sunni Islamic jihadists who seem to agree on only one thing: they want to replace the secular government of the Shiite Bashar al-Assad, who is supported by Russia and by Shiite Iran. They want to replace it with a Sunni Islamic government. Some of these groups have perpetrated terrorist attacks (some including beheadings) against Americans, and one such group is even al-Qaeda, the Sunni Islamic organization that, of course, perpetrated the 9/11, 2001, attacks and others…

 Is It Really ? «New Cold War»?

12.08.2015 | 00:00 | Michael Jabara CARLEY

It seems like every week some western journalist proclaims the beginning of a «new cold war» between the United States and the Russian Federation. As proof of this, they point to the US/EU-backed fascist putsch in Kiev, NATO military gesticulations on Russia’s western frontiers, the continued US escalation of hostilities against Russian ally Syria, US objections to BRICS, among other items on a long list…

 Partners in Crime: NSA, US Justice Department, and Telecom Firms

10.08.2015 | 00:00 | Wayne MADSEN

The so-called USA FREEDOM Act of 2015 is a placebo law designed to placate certain ignorant and uninformed quarters in America concerned about the National Security Agency’s bulk collection of «metadata» on individuals. The USA FREEDOM Act, which is a ridiculous-sounding «backronym» that actually stands for «Uniting and Strengthening America by Fulfilling Rights and Ending Eavesdropping, Dragnet-collection and Online Monitoring Act», is a ruse designed to continue ad infinitum NSA’s illegal surveillance…
