Washington’s outright support for Israeli military action in Gaza outrages the entire world: the casualties and destruction are too great. The vast majority of the world community realises that without US patronage, such actions by Tel Aviv, bordering on genocide, would not have been possible. Continued support for Israel’s security has been a cornerstone of American foreign policy for every U.S. administration since President Harry Truman. Since Israel’s founding in 1948, the United States has provided more than $130 billion in bilateral aid, currently the U.S. provides $3.3 billion…

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak has criticized the policies of current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying that “the beginning of the war may be a precursor to Israel being mired in the Gaza quagmire.” In an opinion piece for the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Barak called for early elections in Israel “before it’s too late.” The former Israeli prime minister said, “On the battlefield, we see inspiring displays of courage and sacrifice. In Israel, we see despair, a sense that despite the gains of the Israel Defense Forces, Hamas has not been defeated and the return of the hostages is receding.”…

Rumors and announcements have swirled recently regarding the presence of US troops in Syria and Iraq, and the prospect of at least a drawdown of troops taking place in one or both locations. This follows escalating violence between local militias and US forces, who have traded missiles and airstrikes amid the ongoing Israeli invasion of Gaza and a resulting decline in regional security…

The US national debt reached $34 trillion on December 29th, 2023, and the congress called it a milestone (here). Why? Because congressmen and Wall Street know that it won’t be paid; at least not through American sweat and blood. Oppositely, Iran has 1.2 trillion cubic feet, and 158 billion barrels of proven gas and oil reserves respectively, resources the US Empire wants to steal. Therefore, when the mainstream media (MSM), Washington’s hidden forked tongue tells you how Iran sponsors terrorists or has Nuclear-weapon ambitions, keep…

With more than 23,000 people, including thousands of children, killed in Gaza and Hamas far from eliminated – which was Israel’s foremost military objective – Jerusalem’s promise of the war continuing in 2024 is a stark acceptance of a failure. This is on top of the fact that it still does not have to plan to prevent civilian casualties. This failure has led Israel to strike in Lebanon. The strike that killed a Hamas leader was a calculated move. The objectives were twofold…

It should come as no surprise that the US only provided lip-service in response to the murder of a non-Ukrainian citizen; however, more people should have you heard about Gonzalo Lira, a dual Chilean-US citizen journalist, having recently died in Ukrainian custody. But they have not, and little, if anything, has been reported in the Western media. But on Yahoo News, reading what the Ukrainian media, such as Voice of Ukraine, has to say, you would almost want to say “Good Riddance,” as even the headline is full of subterfuge regarding the reported death in custody…

The first thing to keep in mind when watching the news, or trying to keep up with the corporate media weekly brainwashing agenda, is “Western weapons are not designed to be effective, they are designed to be expensive,” and once you make this paradigm shift, it all starts making perfect sense. It seems like it takes a lifetime to learn by one’s mistakes, at least I hope so for Henry Kissinger, and for lost souls to make better decisions as our time is limited. Often I think of the fictional “Wizard Merlin” who is the sorcerer that lived his life from the future to the past…

The ongoing violent conflict between Hamas and Israel has recorded more than 19,200 Palestinian deaths with 52,200 wounded as of December 18 this year. The Israel Defense Forces continues its offensive ground operation throughout the Gaza Strip (including in the northern, central and southern areas), ensures a continuous advance and does not consider civilian targets (be it a school, hospital or residential neighborhoods). According to media reports, Israel has already dropped about 29,000 bombs on Gaza (about the same number of bombings were carried out by the US and British Air Forces in 2003 in Iraq)…

As the US operation against Gaza using Israeli partner continues for two and a half months due to US efforts of shooting down UN resolutions for a ceasefire, Lloyd Austin announced Operation Prosperity Guardian against Houthis in Yemen, attesting to the US unexplained love for war that can be likened to pyromania. It could be a matter of time before the American soldiers from the comfort of their ships and aircraft start lobbing bombs and bullets at impoverished defenseless Yemenis, already in the worst humanitarian disaster, just like Israelis are doing to Palestinians…

I had intended to write about the Canadian government’s embarrassment over the revelation that the two “Michaels,” the two Canadians arrested in China several years ago for espionage, after Canada illegally detained Huawei chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver on President Trump’s orders, were actually spies after all, despite Canada’s denials which are still maintained.  The revelation of the truth of that situation is contained in court documents that became public after one of the spies sued the government for getting him involved with a government intelligence agent…

Articles are increasingly appearing in the Arab press that characterize the war in Gaza as a kind of manifestation of the cataclysm of catastrophic capitalism. As the Al Jazeera website noted the other day, America’s war on terror through its proxy Israel can be more accurately described as America’s war against the whole world. “Gaza, as a metaphor, represents the true face of the clash of civilizations…

Despite the decline in the number of references in the world press to the two most “publicised” brands – Al-Qaeda (AQ*) and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL*) – the topic remains a relevant security concern in various regions of the world. Understanding the actual processes involved in the use of terrorist methods in regions with Muslim populations requires an understanding of the nature and drivers of the groups associated with ISIL* and AQ*. Since 2014, reports on the activities of Al-Qaeda* have largely given way to publications on the activities of another…
