"The Lancet" : Another front in NATO's psychological warfare against Syria

09-02-2014 19:28

Serious accusations targeting the Syrian government (for having discarded, on purpose, poliomyelitis vaccination campaigns in those areas occupied by the armed gangs) come from various sources: the doctors of the so-called “opposition” in the USA (Wasim MAZIAK, head of the US-“research” centre on tobacco in Aleppo, in particular); their “active” colleagues in Lebanon (mainly inside the US-American University of Beirut) and in the UK (Adam COUTTS, from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, here associated with the Lancet journal). And as if such a war were not enough, the same protagonists are involved in a concurrent war on a trivial peaceful object particularly associated with the daily life of Middle East culture.

Should Cameron be prosecuted for recruiting Brits to fight in Syria?

05-02-2014 10:41

London Evening Standard, 3 February 2014
According to the London Evening Standard, a top British prosecutor has “warned that Britons who travel to join the Syrian conflict will face prosecution and potential life sentences on their return.” What the British prosecutor fails to address is that the British “freedom fighters” are being recruited with the full support of the British government of Prime Minister David Cameron in defiance of UK laws. Does this mean that those who finance and recruit terrorists at the highest levels of the British government also “potentially face life sentences” as suggested by Crown Prosecutor Hemming? Or is Her Majesty’s Government immune from prosecution?

US to step up war on Syria after Geneva

02-02-2014 14:28

Exposed: Human Rights Watch propaganda on August 2013 chemical attack in Ghouta
Just as the designed-to-fail Geneva II negotiations between the Syrian government and the Western-backed fake opposition came to a close at the weekend, another media smear campaign against the Damascus authorities conveniently surfaces.

The latest "sensational" story is that the Syrian state army has been "wiping civilian residential areas off the map" in the cities of Damascus, Aleppo and Hama.

This must be seen as not just another sporadic Western propaganda stunt. It appears to signal a concerted effort to intensify the US-led agenda of regime change in Syria - an agenda that is criminal to the core. It dovetails with the "failure" of Geneva talks and reports of increased weapons supply from the US to the Al Qaeda proxies waging a war of terror inside Syria, as well as renewed threats of military aggression by Washington's top diplomat, John Kerry.

Human Rights Watch - a proven propaganda tool for the US government - presented satellite images that purport to show large residential areas having been "razed to rubble" by deliberate Syrian army demolition. In an all-too familiar pattern of dissemination, the story was duly given prominence by Western media, including France 24 and the [state-run] BBC.

Imperial conquest: America’s “long war” against humanity

30-01-2014 18:18

US military presence per country (2009)
The world is at the crossroads of the most serious crisis in modern history. The US has embarked on a military adventure, “a long war”, which threatens the future of humanity. This “war without borders” is being carried out at the crossroads of the most serious economic crisis in World history, which has been conducive to the impoverishment of large sectors of the World population. The Pentagon’s global military design is one of world conquest. The military deployment of US-NATO forces is occurring in several regions of the world simultaneously.

NATO. Obituary to a Nukepool

27-01-2014 18:46

The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was a military confederacy during the 60 Years Armistice. Historically, it is part of the fallout of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki attack, which among other things caused the unprepared separation of occupied Korea and the ensuing war on the peninsula. During the armistice period this brought about a new form of international diplomacy that expressed itself in military confederacies. Their formation followed the administrative structure of American imperialism, but of three regional branches positioned around Asia only the European one survived its first years. It turned out to be a mirror of the imperialist hierarchy involving its collaborators at a high profile. In the special case of Germany, it also became a pretext to resurrect an army that had been dissolved with the ultimatum against Japan. With the revocation of the 60 Years Armistice this informal anachronism now has become a formal anachronism. Although in an administrative sense the entity does still exist, it is already displaying its first significant fissures.

Syria: Who are the real war criminals?

25-01-2014 11:51

Triple Treason in the Caucasus

23-01-2014 16:49

If it was not standing behind Europe, such as the Himalaya stands behind India, it would be the highest place of it. But being only a pillar, not a ridge of the entire width of the landmass, it is looking at a much more undefined seam between the subcontinent and the bigger entity it is attached to. Where Europe ends and Asia begins most of the time has been a matter of rivalry of empires, various European ones on one side and Russia on the other, with the entire situation itself being a result of a sort of musical chairs arrangement among them in which the respective ideologies of these empires have been rotating. This constellation has not significantly changed over the recent centuries, and neither have the problems of the two sides, but the role of the Caucasus region in it definitely has.

The Death of the Inclusion Policy in the East Asian Shelf Waters

16-01-2014 14:40

The Chinese extension of airspace claims into the Pacific that shocked so many Atlantic observers is interesting to analyse for a number of reasons. First, it is just as symbolic as the recent border conflict with India in the Himalaya. Second, in its entire arrangement it nevertheless equals a tangential intervention into material conflicts of neighbours, first of all Japan and Korea. And third, the issues at stake such as the meddling of reactionary regimes from across the Pacific are hot enough to mandate attention from only collaterally related places which are affected by the destructivity of these forces as well. Nine months after the "High Noon" atomic test, China now appears to have seized the opportunity to assist Korea as a fellow "nuclear club" member and by doing so at the same time reassert its own position on the Taiwan issue. But to the outside observer it is something much worse that is contained in these developments – the Japanese expansionism whose first wave was only stopped by external reactionaries. Nobody can seriously want the atomic bombings against Japan to occur again, all the more so after the Fukushima incident. But anything suitable to stop the historical revisionism of the Tokyo regime from proliferating across the Pacific and Indian oceans and leaving similar consequences as it did the first time is a welcome – and under sudden circumstances even a necessary – change.

Martin Luther King’s historic plea to break the silence on militarism

15-01-2014 07:02

“A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.” — Martin Luther King, in his famous speech at the Riverside Church in New York City on April 4, 1967

King’s Riverside Church speech was titled “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence.” It was delivered exactly one year before his April, 4, 1968 assassination in Memphis.

The people who heard that speech recognized it as one of the most powerful speeches ever given articulating the immorality of the Vietnam War and its destructive impact on social progress in the United States.

Scotland can be free of London, but not capitalist markets

13-01-2014 17:54

That a small country could defy the power of capitalist markets — the product of the aggregate interests of the world’s most powerful industrialists and financiers — is not realistic. Those markets are expressed through a variety of means, financial and political, through multilateral institutions and imperialist governments, through webs of debt and military pressure.

The Syrian sarin question – Human Rights Watch refuses to answer

13-01-2014 16:14

Recent new elements concerning the attack with the nerve agent sarin on the 21st of August in Syria point to the fact that, in contrast to earlier claims put forward by among others Human Rights Watch and the New York Times, there is not one shred of proof the Syrian army was involved.

On the 28th of December 2013 the New York Times to a certain degree withdrew its previous claims although it blamed the US government and not itself for the lies produced then back in September 2013. However Human Rights Watch still didn’t react to these developments and so continues to stick to its old now discredited lies.

Behind NATO's propaganda outlet for progressives - the Guardian's board members

11-01-2014 12:52

The Guardian, 10 June 2013
It is completely disingenuous for anyone to suggest that the Guardian reports on Edward Snowden's revelations are much more than a carefully managed propaganda exercise deployed in the internal power struggle of the US-Anglo elite about how best to manage their declining global power and influence.

Likewise, it is absurd to suggest that the Guardian editors are implementing a "publish and be damned" policy, as Guardian writer Glenn Greenwald has suggested, when it is inconceivable that their editorial policy on publishing Edward Snowden's material will not have been closely coordinated on the basis of the Board's relations with colleagues in the British government, in British intelligence and in the US-Anglo corporate sector.

Dutch police officer, who shot Rishi Chandrikasing, acquitted/Licence to kill

11-01-2014 02:36

The acquittal of the Dutch police officer, who shot unarmed Rishi Chandrikasing, a Dutch
citizen of colour, is an absolute scandal. Cop claimed self defence, while Rishi was running away,
didn't try to reanimate him [he was living after hit by the bullet] and shot when moving [against police
instruction]. But it fits a long tradition of Dutch police violence, racist or other.
A broad protest in society is necessary. No Justice, no peace!

Why is the Nonproliferation Treaty Failing?

09-01-2014 20:30

It is a deal made on the background of the overwhelming perception that at least as far as this aspect is concerned the destination of history is unequivocally decided, and the present does only relate to it in different ways. However all that was born from this huge perspective is a questionable compartmentalisation of a status quo which itself is a toxic asset. Conventionally it is being assumed that in war there was a linear threshold in form of a parameter that depicts whether that war is a conventional or an atomic war and whose crossing is a one-way street, and that this line would be passed with an explosion or series thereof. As non-linear mathematics turns out to be more descriptive of the situation, especially the theory of proliferation, it could mean that the single most relevant document of the United Nations after the Six Day War is built on contaminated quicksand and unsuitable to serve its purpose to bridge the overkill gap. This is the argument that this is the case and can be diagnosed from the loss of symmetry within the classification it imposes on states. The assumption that some states could be more equal than others but not than populations has turned out to be untenable, and with it the influence of that treaty and the political system revolving around it are crumbling away.
