INTERVIEW WITH ANDRE VLTCHEK FOR FARHIKHTEGAN NEWSPAPER IN IRAN

ANDRE VLTCHEK—The West cares nothing about what is good for others, or even for the entire world. It is only interested in what can serve its own, practical, neo-colonialist agenda.

Iran, together with a handful of other countries, is at the vanguard of this great change that could save our Planet. That is why it should never be allowed to fall!

Gideon Levy: Americans “Are Supporting the First Signs of Fascism in Israel”

LEVY: First of all, American liberals should know all this. They should know that they are supporting the first sign of fascism in Israel.

STEPHEN LENDMAN—Its nuclear weapons deterrent was developed because Washington can’t be trusted.

Responsibility for peninsula tensions lies in Washington, not Pyongyang.

Who Will Pay the $250+ Billion Reconstruction Cost in Syria?

ERIC ZUESSE—America’s corruption deserves a Nobel Prize, like was won by Henry Kissinger and Barack Obama; but, this one should be called the “Hypocrisy Prize” and awarded directly to the US Government — an invoice, “amount due,” totaling the damages done by this Government to all of the governments that had posed no threat to US national security but that the US Government nonetheless overthrew, starting with Thailand in 1948.

Iranian Protests: Deep State’s Unfinished Business

TONY CARTALUCCI—In the world of geopolitical analysis, it is not often that a signed and dated confession can be cited when describing conspiracies against another nation-state. In the case of US meddling in Iran, Brookings provides just such evidence – nearly 200 pages long – detailing everything from fabricated opposition, US sponsorship of terrorism, and even engineered provocations by the US and Israel to trigger a full-scale war.

Britain’s Dirty War in Ireland, Revisited

JOHN WIGHT—Britain’s dirty war in Ireland, waged throughout the course of the Troubles, marked an especial low point in the country’s sordid colonial history. It is a history that has come back into focus with the explosive revelations contained in declassified state documents from the 1980s, made public by the Government of the Irish Republic in Dublin under the country’s thirty-year rule governing the release of state documents.
