Robert Fisk: Struck by Eurocentric fever, or a simple case of reportorial Mr Hyde?

P GREANVILLE—Still, Fisk is Fisk, and he knows his priorities, one of the first apparently being to report and underscore the truth with a view to putting out the numerous fuses lit by the compulsive arsonists in the region, the chief creep in this regard, by a wide margin, Benjamin Netanyahu, a man who clearly has no real respect for life, or else would not be such a pathological warmonger.

Trump an Embarrassment as President, a Threat to World Peace

STEPHEN LENDMAN—The myth of an anti-establishment candidate vanished straightaway after he took office. As commander-in-chief of the nation’s military, he continued US wars of aggression he inherited, escalated them with likely new countries in mind to attack. Instead of improving relations with Russia, China, Iran and other sovereign independent countries, they’re more dismal than ever.

What Can Be Done?

P.C. ROBERTS—If Europe had any sense, any leadership, it would tell Washington good-bye. What is the value to Europe of Washington’s hegemony over the world?

Washington’s apologists say that Europe is afraid of being dominated by Russia. So why aren’t Europeans afraid of their 73 years of domination by Washington, especially a domination that is leading them into military conflict with Russia?
