22 June 2014 — Global Research

irak 2014 “A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.” John F. Kennedy

 Terrorism*, directly or sponsored, has long been America’s weapon of mass destruction – its weapon of choice. As a strategy, it outdates ‘human rights’ and ‘democracy promotion’ and has proven itself to be far more effective by creating mayhem and fear, removing resistance to intervention. The events of 9/11 justified this age-old tactic. Although the tentacles of America’s terror tactic reach back far and spread wide, this article seeks to address the presence of ISIL (or ISIS).

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has recently described Iran as the hardest issue she has been dealing with as secretary of state.

In 30-minute keynote address at the annual US-Israeli forum, Clinton clearly enunciated that she has failed to find a solution to Iran issue.

“Iran is the hardest of the hard boards because of the dangers its behavior already poses and the geometrically greater danger that a nuclear-armed Iran would pose… It is an issue that has consumed a significant part of my time as secretary of state.”

New Phase of Syrian Crisis By Boris DOLGOV

17 November 2012 — Strategic Culture Foundation

The Syrian opposition abroad  held a session in Qatar to form a new  organization to guide their activities – the so-called National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition.  It is led by elected President Ahmed Moaz al-Khatib,  a Sunni Sheikh, a former imam of the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus and an ardent opponent of Bashar Assad’s regime. He left Syria in 2012.  The coalition englobed the Syrian National Council along with some other opposition groups to be called the “only representative of Syrian people”.  President al- Khatib will be assisted by elected vice-presidents: George Sabra, who has many a time called for a military intervention in Syria, and Riad Seif, an opposition leader and a businessman living abroad.

NAM Summit: Ban Ki-Moon in disgraceful show of US puppetry By Finian Cunningham

30 August, 2012 — Global Research – Press TV

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (C), Iran

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (C), Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (R) and Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi at the opening ceremony of the 16th Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in Tehran on August 30, 2012.

Seated alongside Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on the day that Iran took over presidency of the NAM of 120 nations, the presence of Ban could be seen as a blow to the diplomatic machinations of the United States and its Western allies, including Israel.

But, rather than making a forthright statement of support for Iran, the veteran South Korean diplomat showed his true colours as a servile puppet of American imperialism.

Assad in Western eyes: From riches to rags By Dmitry Babich

29 February, 2012Voice of Russia

The recent pronouncements by Western leaders and the monarchs of the Persian Gulf  Emirates on the Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and his regime make one want to rub one’s eyes. Are we hearing them from the same people we have just seen shaking hands with Assad and hinting at lucrative contracts with his “regime”? Didn’t the French president Nicolas Sarkozy consider it an honor to meet Assad at his Elysee Palace just one year before? Now Sarkozy calls him a “mass killer.” And wasn’t Sarkozy’s glamorous wife Carla Bruni entertained by the company of Assad’s British-raised wife, Asma? And can a person indeed change from a welcome guest to a mass killer in the short period between December 2010, when al-Assad’s last visit to France took place, and now?
