Thanks to Establishment media, the sorcerer apprentices advising President Joe Biden—I refer to Secretary of State Antony Blinken, national security adviser Jacob Sullivan, and China specialist Kurt Campbell—will have no trouble rallying Americans for the widest war in 77 years, starting in Ukraine, and maybe spreading to China. And, shockingly, under false pretenses.

President Biden announcing the targeted killing of Ayman al-Zawahiri

Drone assassination returned briefly to the top of the news agenda this week with the US targeted killing of al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in Kabul. Many could be forgiven for thinking this was the first drone targeted killing since the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in January 2020, but behind the scenes the use of drones for these type of operations is growing – and spreading.

Listen to a reading of this article:

The US is the only nation on earth whose entire economy is built on arms manufacturing and security guarantees to tyrannical Gulf states. It’s not just correct to call the US empire a uniquely evil power structure, it’s correct to say it’s impossible for it not to be.

Has Russia turned the Western alliance into an unstoppable behemoth?

Let’s consider the differences in Grand Strategy that play into tactical prowess

Thomas Bergman

In the Western corporate media, you often hear of Russian casualties and destruction and how many economic benefits Russians are deprived of as a result of the military operation in Ukraine.  They speak of Russian “isolation” and how much that isolation supposedly costs Russia and her people, even to the point of predicting that the Russian government would topple under the weight of sanctions.  You hear about how much Russia has lost in this period of history, as Western leaders, from President Biden to Ursula von der Leyen, attempt to portray the policies of the West as imposing supreme costs upon the Russian state.  Yet do we consider the opposite?  Do we consider how Russia is benefitting militarily from the conflict?  Do we consider how much the Russian economy is growing in importance while ours wavers from self-imposed wounds?  Dare we say, even, that Russia could even win an expanded conflict with the Western alliance?  Let’s consider how differences in grand strategy yield surprising results.

‘Damned Fun’ – ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ And The Military-Entertainment Complex

Tuesday, 7 June 2022 — Media Lens

In 1990, Tom Cruise, star of the 1986 blockbuster, ‘Top Gun’, said:

‘Some people felt that “Top Gun” was a right-wing film to promote the Navy. And a lot of kids loved it. But I want the kids to know that’s not the way war is – that “Top Gun” was just an amusement park ride, a fun film with a PG-13 rating that was not supposed to be reality. That’s why I didn’t go on and make “Top Gun II” and “III” and “IV” and “V.” That would have been irresponsible.’

It would indeed, and one can only admire Cruise’s honesty and selfless determination… in 1990…  not to mislead young people.

Why, then, 32 years later, would Cruise decide to appear in ‘Top Gun: Maverick’? The Daily Mail provides a clue:

 Elon Musk Is Not a Renegade Outsider – He’s a Massive Pentagon Contractor

 Tuesday, 31 May 2022 — MintPress News

AUSTIN, TEXAS – Elon Musk’s proposed takeover of Twitter has ruffled many feathers among professional commentators. “Musk is the wrong leader for Twitter’s vital mission,” read one Bloomberg headline. The network also insisted, “Nothing in the Tesla CEO’s track record suggests he will be a careful steward of an important media property.” “Elon Musk is the last person who should take over Twitter,” wrote Max Boot in The Washington Post, explaining that “[h]e seems to believe that on social media anything goes. For democracy to survive, we need more content moderation, not less.” The irony of outlets owned by Michael Bloomberg and Jeff Bezos warning of the dangers of permitting a billionaire oligarch to control our media was barely commented upon.

The secret, US-financed Ukrainian military programs

Tuesday, 31 May 2022 — Voltaire Network

by Thierry Meyssan

In 2016, the United States committed to arming Ukraine to fight and win a war against Russia. Subsequently, the US Department of Defense organized a biological research program in Ukraine, and then huge amounts of nuclear fuel were secretly transferred to the country. These data change the interpretation of this war: it was not wanted and prepared by Moscow, but by Washington.
