The book says the Trump administration was seriously concerned about the possibility of Hezbollah dragging the US into a “catastrophic” Middle East war. The recently-published book entitled “Fear: Trump in the White House” says that in February 2017, early in the Trump administration, top US officials were seriously worried that Israel could not defend itself […]
Seventeen years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the US government and media outlets have decided that Al-Qaeda is now a rebel group worthy of our sympathy. The cynical narrative change is par for the course, experts told RT. As somber newspaper headlines mark the anniversary of the devastating attacks, some commentators have pointed out that […]
The Pentagon estimates that the cost of war since the fateful terror attacks on 9/11 rounds out to $1.5 trillion, yet experts maintain that this figure wildly underestimates the true financial burden of perpetual war. “After 16 years, should the taxpayers of America be satisfied we are in a ‘stalemate?’ I don’t think so,” the […]
This week Donald Trump signed the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), allocating $717 billion to the armed forces. The bill will fund the US Department of Defense, authorize a 2.6% military pay raise and increase the number of US troops by 15,600.
American politicians provoke a slew of emotions, from tears of rage to tears of laughter. But perhaps the uppermost emotion is one of pity. With a few honorable exceptions, it is such a pity that the American people are misled by such buffoons. It is such a pity that the American and Russian people — […]
The Syrian Army has gotten its hands on another huge cache of weapons and ammunition, including US-made TOW anti-tank missile systems, chemical warfare, minesweeping and communications equipment and even armored vehicles. Some of the supplies appear to be brand new, as if militants did not get the chance to use them against government forces.
The side of Deep State full control and the agenda to depopulate the world by 90% and than create the New World Order. That is the plan. They cause narratives to divide the people. Country against country, race against race, Christian against Muslim, woman against man, black against white etc. Trump is Pushing US Into […]
Whatever the Douma residents, who had first-hand experience of the shooting of the ‘water dousing after chemical attack’ video, have to say, their words simply don’t fit into the narrative allowed in the West, analysts told RT. Footage of screaming bewildered civilians and children being doused with water, presumably to decontaminate them, was a key […]
As Russiagate comes to totally dominate the US political landscape, the question of America’s long history of foreign meddling has surfaced like a frog’s wart. In yet another variation on the theme of ‘Russia hacking America’s brain,’ a gaggle of American pundits appeared on Tuesday on the MSNBC news program ‘Deadline White House’ to elucidate […]
Children suffering in war have become tools for the West, with Nikki Haley stating that Russia’s hands are “covered in their blood” in Syria. However, the US seems to not mind “collateral damage” in the wars it’s backing. Speaking at the UN Security Council meeting following an alleged chemical attack in Syria, the US ambassador said […]
So, the world is counting the hours to see whether the US and its allies will launch a military strike on Syria. If this war plan goes ahead, the attack will be furious – and the repercussions grave, as Russia sternly warned this week. Indeed, we are talking about the very real danger that any US-led military […]
The current state of anti-Russia hysteria is reminiscent of earlier dark chapters of American history, including the rush to war in Iraq of the early 2000s and McCarthyism of the 1950s, Patrick Henningsen observes. If there’s one thing to be gleaned from the current atmosphere of anti-Russian hysteria in the West, it’s that the US-led sustained […]
Trump’s appointment of well-known neocons Mike Pompeo and John Bolton as the next Secretary of State and National Security Advisor respectively proves that he’s decisively embraced the neoconservative faction of the “deep state”. The President used to rail against people like Pompeo and Bolton, especially the latter because of his hawkish views towards Iraq, but now he’s depending on both of them for policymaking […]
Dems are criticizing Trump’s National Security Advisor pick, not because he’s a warmonger who was one of the original members of the Project for a New American Century, but because he’s allegedly too soft on Russia, Caitlin Johnstone explains. As so many of us have been dreading, PNAC’s favorite bloodthirsty child killer John Bolton has been added […]
One must marvel at the first few paragraphs of Amnesty International’s recent press release: “The international community’s catastrophic failure to take concrete action to protect the people of Syria has allowed parties to the conflict, most notably the Syrian government, to commit war crimes and crimes against humanity with complete impunity, often with assistance of […]
