America

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—Giant wars left Europe a mess many years ago, so America rose to the top. Now it’s where many rich and powerful influencers centralize their operations. America is the cattle prod used to compel the world to march along with the interests of western aristocrats. Governments which comply are rewarded with military “protection”, while noncompliant governments are sanctioned and bombed. The Mafia does this also.

The Callousness of the Corporate Military Empire

PHILIP A. FARRUGGIO—They send our young soldiers overseas to occupy countries we have no business ever being in. Peeling away the ‘ onion of truth’ reveals that our military is over there to protect our corporations and our banking cartels, and not for any other reason. So, we kill and get our soldiers killed for no moral purpose but …. keeping this empire empowered! Of course, this all fuels the nourishment of the beast that our Military Corporate Empire has become… whereupon half of our federal taxes goes down that rabbit hole! Is this what Making America great again is all about?

US-Europe conflicts erupt in run-up to NATO summit in Brussels

ALEX LANTIER—Having grown out of World War II, NATO’s different competing factions are all preparing in various ways the ground for a new, global conflict. None of these factions have anything to offer to the working class. The question posed to workers around the world, now as at the time of the Russian Revolution of October 1917, is the struggle against wars rooted in the structure of international capitalism itself.

Syria: ‘Rebels Played Russian Roulette, and Lost’

Even this far into the Syrian conflict and after many other such weapons seizures throughout the country, analysts and journalists have commented that the sheer numbers of advanced weapons — in most cases obviously externally supplied — are “staggering”.  Meanwhile, all of this begs the question: where will all the surviving jihadists currently fleeing the Syrian battlefield go? (assuming Syria-Russia will hit the last major expansive jihadist bastion of Idlib next).

Syria – Mainstream Media Lie About Watchdog Report On The ‘Chemical Attack’ In Douma

MOA—Reuters has since changed the headline and text of that item from “chlorine” to “chlorinated chemicals” but attached no note of that change. Moreover it does not explain that “chlorinated chemicals” will be found about anywhere. It is doubtful that these ‘mistakes’ were made out of sloppiness. The writers likely intend to create the false impression that Syria was responsible for a ‘chemical attack’ that did not happen.

BOOKS THAT MATTER—The Russian Peace Threat examines Russophobia, American Exceptionalism and other urgent topics

Punto Press, a publishing house affiliated with The Greanville Post, has just published a much awaited history/memoir by Ron Ridenour, an anti-imperialist fighter, radical journalist, and author whose uncompromising trajectory spans six decades and three continents, with first-hand experiences in Cuba, Nicaragua, Europe and naturally the country of his birth, the United States. A life spent struggling for justice and peace is a life morally well lived. In The Russian Peace Threat—Pentagon on Alert, whose focus is the century-old tug of war between two deeply antithetical societies, the US and Russia, Ridenour has not only provided activists and the public at large a dependable and compelling history that is aimed at dissolving the thick layers of disinformation and ignorance still keeping the two nations apart, but a wealth of details and insights seldom found in comparable works, written by a man who does not pretend to a non-existent “objectivity” but simple, liberating truth. MUST READ for people of the real left.

Hidden Ironies: World Cup Soccer Fun in a Moscow Targeted by Nuclear Missiles in US Silos, Submarines & Bombers   

JAY JANSON—Within a few years of committing war crimes beyond description in atom bombing the civilian population of two Japanese cities in 1945, Americans were threatening the Soviet Union, Korea, China and Vietnam with nuclear attack at various times until 1960, when the Russians acquired their own nuclear weapons. Then the era of Mutual Assured Destruction, called MAD began. During this supposed but shaky safety for all of us for the hair raising mutual destruction standoff, ever more powerful nukes and delivery systems were created threatening all of us and life on Earth with a horrible death.
