Listen to a reading ot this article (reading by Tim Foley):

60 Minutes Australia has been playing a leading role in saturating Australian airwaves with consent-manufacturing messaging in support of militarising to participate in a US war against China. A segment they ran a year ago is titled “Prepare for Armageddon: China’s warning to the world,” and features an image of Xi Jinping overlaid with war planes and explosions and captioned “POKING THE PANDA”. Another from a year ago is titled “War with China: Are we closer than we think?” Another from ten months ago is titled “China’s new target in the battle to control the Pacific.” Another from six months ago is titled “Inside the battle for Taiwan and China’s looming war threat.” Another from two months ago is titled “Is the Navy ready? How the U.S. is preparing amid a naval buildup in China.”

Sabotage of Nord Stream won’t go unpunished

Tuesday, 14 March 2023 — Indian Punchline


Biden & Scholz huddle in White House, with no aides present, dwelt on the sabotage of Nord Stream, Washington, March 3, 2023

Next Monday, an uneasy anniversary arrives. It will be 20 years since the invasion of Iraq by the United States. Britain was a pillar of the US-led ‘coalition of the willing.’ The Guardian columnist John Harris wrote on Sunday that it was “the greatest political and humanitarian disaster the UK had been involved in since the second world war… when the supposed political centre ground suddenly lurched somewhere reckless and catastrophic.”

Michael Hudson: Why the US banking system is breaking up

Sunday, 12 March 2023 — Geopolitical Economy Report

Economist Michael Hudson responds to the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank, and explains the similarities with the 2008 financial crash and the savings and loan crisis of the 1980s.

A run on American Union Bank in 1932

The California-based, cryptocurrency-focused Silvergate Bank collapsed on March 8. Two days later, Silicon Valley Bank went down as well, in the largest ever bank run. The latter was the second-biggest bank to fail in US history, and the most influential financial institution to crash since the 2008 crisis.

Economist Michael Hudson, co-host of the program Geopolitical Economy Hour, analyzes the disaster:

It is Zugzwang for Biden in Ukraine

Wednesday, 8 March 2023 — Indian Punchline


New York Times reported Tuesday that a ‘pro-Ukrainian group’ sabotaged Nord Stream pipeline in the Baltic on Sept. 27, 2023

There is a cardinal difference between the Washington Post report of June 18, 1972 by Alfred Lewis breaking the news of the Watergate burglary and the sensational claim by the New York Times on Tuesday — per a CNN report — that “intelligence suggests that a pro-Ukrainian group” sabotaged the Nord Stream gas pipelines.

Nord Stream Attack – ‘Officials’ Throw More Chaff To Hide The Real Perpetrators

Wednesday, 8 March 2023 — Moon of Alabama

Right at the same moment the New York Times publishes a shoddy ‘officials say’ story about alleged intelligence about the Nord Stream terror attack the Germany weekly Die Zeit, which has strong U.S. secret services ties, comes up with an equally unbelievable tale of a ‘Ukrainian owned’ sailing boat playing the major role in the attack:

Attack Of The “Pro-Ukrainian Group”: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix

Wednesday, 8 March 2023 — Caitlin Johnson

Listen to a reading of this article:

The latest New York Times report on the Nord Stream pipeline bombing is something else. According to NYT’s anonymous US government sources, the pipelines were blown up by a “pro-Ukrainian group” who had no known connections to any military or intelligence agency, but somehow had all the information, skills, diving equipment and military explosives necessary to carry out such an attack.

Nord Stream Attack – White House Counters Hersh’s Reputation With Weak ‘Intelligence’

Tuesday, 7 March, 2023 — Moon of Alabama

On September 28 2022, a day after the Nord Stream pipelines were blown up, I published the available open source evidence which strongly suggested that the U.S. had done it:

Whodunnit? – Facts Related to The Sabotage Attack On The Nord Stream Pipelines

US occupation of Syria will continue

Monday, 6 March2023 — Indian Punchline


US Joint Chiefs Chair, General Mark Milley (L) paid an unannounced visit to a US military base in Northeast Syria, March 3, 2023

The sudden unannounced arrival of the top US military officer General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, at a dusty American base in Syria’s remote northeast on Friday may call to mind a famous quote by Dick Cheney, vice-president in the George W Bush presidency: “The good Lord didn’t see fit to put oil and gas only where there are democratically elected regimes friendly to the United States. Occasionally we have to operate in places where, all considered, one would not normally choose to go. But we go where the business is.”

Since the proxy war in Ukraine began, the Biden administration and Congress have directed more than $100 billion in assistance to their proxy forces fighting Russia in Ukraine. MintPress Senior Staff Writer Alan MacLeod asks why all of that money is going to Ukraine while Europe and the United States neglect their own populations.

The Grayzone’s Max Blumenthal and Aaron Mate cover the growing pressure on the Biden administration to take its Ukraine proxy war to Crimea, while military leaders openly discuss plans for war with China over Taiwan, while acknowledging the inevitability of Taiwan’s destruction.

Quoth the Vultures “Evermore”

Monday, 27 February 2023 — Ed Curtin

On the short roof outside the bedroom window, two black vultures sit, staring in.  They have come to remind me of something.  I put my book down and peer back  at these strange looking creatures. The book: Our War: What We Did in Vietnam And What It Did to Us by David Harris.  I had read it when it was first published in 1996 and it has stuck with me, as has the utterly savage U.S. war against Vietnam that killed so many millions, what the Vietnamese call The American War.

Those who brought us Rage Against the War Machine recognized if we are to defeat the non-stop imperial war machine that rules over our lives, we must work with all people possible under its boot. Until we all do, we defeat ourselves.
