Washington’s Utterly Failed Diplomacy

9 August 2019 — Strategic Culture Foundation

There seems no longer any attempt, or semblance, of seeking diplomacy by Washington. Sanctions and aggression are wielded with reckless abandon. Russia, China, and even America’s own supposed European allies are subject to sanctions by Washington in a high-handed dismissal of any mutual dialogue to resolve alleged grievances.

Syria: Keep Dreaming Kiddos By JASON HIRTHLER

13 September 2013 — Counterpunch

Laurent Fabius: Disgracing France and confirming once again that social democrats are bankable traitors. Public opinion is overwhelmingly against war in France but France is no longer a democracy, either.

 With almost pathological haste, Western governments have moved to undermine Russia’s sensible proposal for Syria to hand over its chemical stores, thus avoiding the needless carnage being proposed by the United States. In an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley not hours after the proposal gained the tentative acceptance of the Syrians, Obama grudgingly conceded it was a positive development, but quickly added that it would never have been possible without “a credible military threat,” and sounded all the appropriate reservations. Hillary Clinton also warned that the initiative, however hypothetically, cannot be, “another excuse for delay or obstruction.”

Video: Monsanto Baseball: Escaping Accountability in Corporate America

6 August 2013 — grtv 

deceptionsusa.com presents “Monsanto Baseball.” If you are Monsanto, you can commit the most egregious crimes against humanity but you are never guilty of any safety violations. In fact the EPA, FDA and USDA approve your products for public consumption.

22 June 2013 — Falkvinge on Infopolicy

The Whitehouse petition to pre-emptively pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden for “crimes he may have committed while blowing the whistle” has reached its goal of 100,000 signatures. This means that the U.S. Administration, by its own rules, need to take it seriously enough to craft a response to it. While that response is unlikely to be anything else than “we politely disagree and intend to impolitely hunt this man down”, it is still an important signal of dissent.

Action Alert: Iraq Then, Syria Now? New York Times, sarin and skepticism

15 May 2013 — FAIR Blog 

During the run-up to the Iraq War, the New York Times amplified erroneous official claims about weapons of mass destruction (FAIR Action Alert, 9/8/06). Looking at the paper’s coverage of allegations of chemical weapons use by Syria, some of the same patterns are clear: an over-reliance on official sources and the downplaying of critical or skeptical analysis of the available intelligence.

The Shameless Vacuity of Susan Rice’s Black Boosters

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

Africa doesn’t matter, U.S. wars don’t matter, nothing matters to the Black Misleadership Class except the sickly prestige of basking in the (distant) glow of power. Susan Rice’s “Black boosters embrace an abettor of genocide and endless military interventions as one of their own – and indict themselves.”

A Second Wave of Genocide Looms in Congo, with Susan Rice on Point

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

Susan Rice is a woman of ghastly accomplishments: suppressor of the facts on genocide in Congo, and chief U.S. warmonger in Africa. Yet African American politicians rush to her defense, as a role model for young Blacks, especially women.
