ATOMIC BOMBINGS AT 75: The Illegality of Nuclear Weapons

4 August 2020 — Consortium News

The mere possession of nuclear weapons violate the Nuremberg Principles, decreed a day before Nagasaki, and other international laws, argues international law professor Francis Boyle.

By Francis Boyle

The human race stands on the verge of nuclear self-extinction as a species, and with it will die most, if not all, forms of intelligent life on the planet earth. Any attempt to dispel the ideology of nuclearism and its attendant myth propounding the legality of nuclear weapons and nuclear deterrence must directly come to grips with the fact that the nuclear age was conceived in the original sins of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945.

China & US Power

14 July 2020 — Economics of Imperialism

Tony Norfield

Can China do much to fight back against the power wielded by the US in the world economy? At first sight, that looks unlikely. China is big, but world trade is conducted in dollars, and the US has economic, political and military influence across the globe. The usual result of a tally of US might is that its position as hegemon is unassailable. But that would overlook how measures of its strength depend upon the world staying in the form that US power has created since 1945. If it doesn’t, then these will not count for as much. As one might expect, China has been responding to US attacks, and the outcome is likely to foment a split in the world economy.

Video: Covid-19 Lies and Fraud: How the Fear Campaign is Affecting US Hospitals and Clinics

2 August 2020 — Global Research

Testimony of Dr. Dareld Morris

By Dr. Dareld Morris and Mark Taliano

Dr. Dareld Morris

In the following interview, Dr. Morris, a practicing physician in Florida, USA, explains how politics and fraud are root causes of the Fear campaign that is plaguing his state, and the country.

First, labs are faking COVID results. Some labs are reporting 100% positive tests, and this, he says, is statistically impossible. Two labs that were audited reported less than 10% positive COVID results. Morris attributes the fake reporting to politics and insurance fraud.

World War II: US Military Destroyed 66 Japanese Cities Before Planning to Wipe Out the Same Number of Soviet Cities

18 June 2019 — Global Research

Remember:

Hiroshima, August 6, 1945

Nagasaki, August 9, 1945

Timely historical analysis: This article was first published in June 2019

The extent of devastation inflicted upon Japan by the American military during World War II is not broadly known, even today. In reprisal for the attack over Pearl Harbor, which killed almost 2,500 Americans, US aircraft first began unloading bombs on Japan during the afternoon of 18 April 1942 – attacking the capital Tokyo, and also five other major cities, Yokohama, Osaka, Nagoya, Kobe and Yokosuka.

In this introduction to the memoir of a Nagasaki bombing victim, historian Peter Kuznick shows why the bombs were dropped and how some victims’ anger propelled the Japanese anti-nuclear movement.

By Peter Kuznick

He had a long career in Japan’s postal and telegraph services. As a leader in Japan’s anti-nuclear movement, he addressed thousands of audiences and hundreds of thousands of people.

Why the US needs to launch a pre-emptive strike

The window for preserving US economic and financial hegemony is closing rapidly, concertinaed by the pandemic. The IMF data released 24th June, which is continuously being revised, gives a 9% reduction in US GDP relative to China this year. In fact, that reduction could be nearer 20%, effectively ending the reign of the US economy as the world’s largest, when measured by $GDP.

Overview: USA vs Assange

29 July 2020 — Defend Wikileaks

Julian Assange faces extradition from the United Kingdom to the United States, where he has been indicted on 18 counts for obtaining, possessing, conspiring to publish and for publishing classified information. The indictment contains 17 counts under the Espionage Act of 1917 and one charge of conspiring with a source to violate the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, which uses Espionage Act language. This is the first ever use of such charges for the publication of truthful information in the public interest, and it represents a gravely dangerous attempt to criminalise journalist-source communications and the publication by journalists of classified information.
