PATRICE GREANVILLE—The shameful role of the media whores who totally underreported or actively supported this war cannot be emphasized often enough. As a result most Americans still have a dense fog of confusion in their minds about the empire’s adventures in Indochina: how it started, what purposes it served, and what lessons it should have taught us, but didn’t. I’m talking here about moral lessons. Today after almost half a century since the end of this atrocity, the same ruling elites are actively involved not just in pursuing several more criminal wars with no end in sight, but eagerly plotting and provoking not just more conventional wars, but possibly the biggest chestnut of them all, the chestnut that will kill us all: a nuclear war with China or Russia or probably both.

The despicable empire finally acts to tighten the noose around Venezuela’s neck: Tankers seized in high seas. (Updated)
Washington’s high-seas score stems from a July court complaint demanding the four tankers in question “forfeit all petroleum-product cargo” due to its having been shipped by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, according to the statement. The US designated the IRGC a terrorist organization last year at the behest of Israel as it ramped up its “maximum pressure” campaign against Tehran. Since pulling out of the JCPOA nuclear deal in 2018, the Trump administration has leveled a bewildering array of sanctions against Iran, flooded the Persian Gulf with US military assets, and offered millions of dollars in bribes to Iranian ship captains to deliver their oil tankers into the hands of Uncle Sam.

New Iran envoy Elliott Abrams raises the risk that Israel will provoke Trump into conflict with Teheran
JAMES NORTH— Let’s turn to the Mideast. Abrams is a lifelong pro-Israel ideologue who has said that all Jews must “stand apart” from the country they live in except Israel. As part of the George W. Bush administration, he enthusiastically supported the disastrous U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003.
You learn nothing about Abrams’s dark history from today’s New York Times report. Instead, the article inexplicably dwells on the outgoing Brian Hook, who granted the paper an interview. (The Washington Post report wryly noted that, “Hook could not be reached for comment.) The Times praises Hook as a “smooth debater,” and implies that he had been genuinely trying for diplomacy with Iran — instead of the truth, which is that the U.S. imposed crippling sanctions, and Israel (and probably America as well) have carried out a string of sabotage attacks inside Iran that are intended to provoke conflict.

THE CONVO COUCH—So, as usual, with a horrid boondoggle cum tragedy like the Beirut blast, the empire’s disinformation machine is trying to capitalize, so the usual “assets” are providing the necessary incriminating headlines: it’s Russia! Russia! Russia!, folks, while the presstitutes oblige. Is anyone surprised?
