American Left Silence on China Helps Lay Foundation for the U.S.’ New Cold War

When it comes to China, Democracy Now, Jacobin, The Nation and others on the imperial-minded US ‘left” are allies of white supremacy.

“The racism that undergirds the New Cold War against China is nothing new.”

Propaganda, Lies and False Flags: How the U.S. Justifies its Wars Releases June 2020 (Red Pill Press)

Campaigns against Native Americans. The War of 1812. World War I, World War II, Iraq and Afghanistan… The United States has been at war for the vast majority of its history.

These wars have killed millions of innocent men, women and children around the world. Yet more often than not they have been based on weak evidence, questionable motives, and outright lies. Why, then, do large portions of the public staunchly support the US troops?  Why are so many Americans satisfied with the U.S. bombings of Yemen, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and other Middle Eastern countries, knowing that this is creating starvation and refugee crises of catastrophic proportions?

Never Trust a Failing Empire

17 December 2019 — Strategic Culture Foundation

By Federico Pieraccini

The Washington Post, through documents released through the Freedom of Information Act, has published a long investigation into Afghanistan. Journalists have collected over 400 testimonies from American diplomats, NATO generals and other NATO personnel, that show that reports about Afghanistan were falsified to deceive the public about the real situation on the ground.

Western progressives and the imperialist Inquisition

27 October 2019 — MROnline

Originally published: Un enfoque diferente by Stephen Sefton (October 25, 2019)

Most people who think of themselves as progressive in the imperialist countries of North America and Western Europe, continue to believe the right wing opposition version of events in Nicaragua in 2018. A great many also accept some version of the right wing opposition account of the crisis in Venezuela. One obvious reason they do so is because they foolishly trust demonstrably false reports from undeservedly prestigious Western NGOs and incessant phony coverage in liberal and progressive news media.

The World Is Uniting For International Law, Against US Empire

12 August 2019 — Counter Currents

Co-Written by Kevin Zeese and Margaret Flower

“We oppose the extraterritorial application of unilateral measures.“

That is not Cuba, Nicaragua, Iran, Russia, or China talking about the most recent unilateral coercive measures imposed by the United States against Venezuela, i.e. economic sanctions that have become an economic blockade, but the European Union. Even allies who have embarrassed themselves by recognizing the phony “interim president” Juan Guaido are saying the US has gone too far.

Shielding the World From US Chaos Is No Easy Task By Federico Pieraccini

25 May 2019 — Strategic Culture Foundation

Donald Trump’s foreign policy relies heavily on putting to use to the tools available to the Empire: economic terrorism, threats of war, diplomatic pressure, trade wars, etc. But in resorting to tried-and-true imperialism, it is isolating itself internationally from traditional allies and raising tensions on the global chessboard to an unprecedented level.

Target Iran! By Francis Boyle

16 May 2019 — Consortium News

Francis Boyle positions sabre-rattling at Iran squarely inside the catastrophic saga of U.S. imperialism.

The author delivered this speech at the Perdana Global Peace Forum 2006 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on June 22, 2006. That year the U.S. had deployed aircraft carriers to the Persian Gulf and tensions then, as now, were high.

Can China and Russia Survive in this Unharmonious World? By Andre Vltchek

16 March 2019 – Global Research

Does it pay ‘to be good’? Is it still possible to play by the rules in this mad world, governed by brigands?

What if the rules are defined and ratified by all countries of the world, but a small group of the strongest (militarily) nations totally ignores them, while using its professional propagandists to reinterpret them in the most bizarre ways?

“Humanitarian Intervention” And The “New World Order“: Violation Of The International Law (II) By Vladislav B. SOTIROVIĆ

13 February 2019 – Oriental Review

Part I

It is a very fact that modern Public International Law strictly prohibits either any threat of armed force by any sovereign political entity (state) or use of armed force by any state acting without the authorization of the UNSC on the foundation of the VII Chapter of the UN Charter. In other words, the use of force, including an armed (military) intervention, is possible only under the umbrella of the UN Charter but after the authorization by the UNSC in accordance to the idea of collective security. Here, two questions arise: What is Public International Law and What is collective security?
