    U.S. Airdrops Weapons to ISIS as Iraqi Army Makes Gains

    by Kurt Nimmo In November Iraqi intelligence sources said the U.S. is actively supplying ISIS with weapons. “The Iraqi intelligence sources reiterated that the US military planes have airdropped several aid cargoes for ISIL terrorists to help them resist the siege laid by the Iraqi army, security and popular forces,” a report stated. “What is important is that the US sends these weapons to only those that cooperate with the Pentagon and this indicates that the US plays a role in arming the ISIL.” The London-based organization Conflict Armament Research previously reported that ISIS fighters are using “significant quantities” of arms including M16 assault rifles marked “property of the US…

    Sobering Truths About America’s Imperialist Crimes Against Humanity

    By Harold Pinter and Dr. Gary G. Kohls We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, innumerable acts of random murder, misery, degradation and death to the Iraqi people and call it ‘bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East’. – Harold Pinter British playwright Harold Pinter won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005. His powerful acceptance speech exposed the United States for its fascist, imperialist policies since World War II. His speech (delivered three years before he died in 2008) was an important glimpse into – and a reasonable summary of — the innumerable documentable US imperialistic crimes that have been secretly facilitated by our multinational corporations, our…

    Afghanistan conflict: When Enduring Freedom is turned asunder

    by Phillip Butler In December of 2001, the mightiest military force the world has ever known launched ‘Operation Enduring Freedom’ in Afghanistan. Today, the US and NATO military mission in that distant country officially comes to a close, but the foe remains unvanquished. I am writing this piece to caution the leaders of free nations, before you leap into more asymmetrical warfare abroad, please examine the outcomes of Afghanistan first. Let me begin by pointing out that just before America entered her longest war, then-President George W. Bush was quoted as saying: “We will direct every resource at our command — every means of diplomacy, every tool of intelligence, every…

    The Biggest Scandal in America Is Its Controlled Press

    By Eric Zuesse How many Americans know that the current regime in Ukraine was installed in a very bloody February 2014 coup d’etat, that was planned in the U.S. White House, and overseen by an Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland, and run by the CIA, and carried out for the White House by one of Ukraine’s two racist-fascist, or nazi, political parties, whose founder and leader still controls Ukraine though not officially, even these many months after his coup, and which nazi party has been up to their elbows since then in a genocidal policy to exterminate the people in the region of Ukraine that had voted approximately 90%…

    The Pentagon’s Secret Wars: You Don’t Have the Right to Know

    Written by  Joe Wolverton, II, J.D. Do the American people have the right to know the nations with which the United States is at war? The Defense Department says no. When asked by senators to identify the groups being fought, the Pentagon said it’s a secret. The Pentagon did hand over a list of forces associated with al-Qaeda, but members of Congress who received the list were forbidden from sharing it with the public. ProPublica — an investigative news organization — contacted the office of Senator Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and requested a copy of the enemies roster. Levin’s representatives refused. Why such secrecy? Defense Department spokesmen say it’s a national security exigency.…

    More Evidence That The U.S. Government Is A Criminal Enterprise

    July 15, 2013 by Bob Livingston The U.S. government is a criminal enterprise and is out of control. The U.S. Constitution was drafted to limit government and affirm the natural rights held by the people, but it is serially ignored and violated by the President, the Congress, the Supreme Court and law enforcers both Federal and local. The result is growing tyranny and a police state and a Nation that is becoming a simmering cauldron of unrest — sparked by the passage of unConstitutional laws by a Congress controlled by moneyed interests; the affirming of those laws by the Supreme Court; long-term high rates of unemployment; a declining standard of…

    Was Washington behind Egypt’s coup d’etat?

    Michel Chossudovsky is an award-winning author, professor of economics, founder and director of the Centre for Research on Globalization, Montreal and editor of the globalresearch.ca website. The overthrow of President Mohamed Morsi by the Egyptian Armed forces was not carried out against US interests, it was instigated to ensure “continuity” on behalf of Washington. “[US Defense Secretary] Hagel and [US Chief of Staff General] Dempsey were walking a fine line … expressing concern while attempting to avoid the impression that the U.S. was manipulating events behind the scenes.” (Military.com, July 3, 2013) The protest movement is directed against the US and its proxy Muslim Brotherhood regime. The Muslim Brotherhood had been…

    Bipartisan Elites: Yes, the Bush Administration Totally Tortured

    Centrist, establishment types detail brutal, illegal interrogation tactics in a new reckoning. Conor Friedersdorf Apr 17 2013, 6:00 AM ET A dozen years after 9/11, many movement conservatives still want to have it both ways. They want to insist that the Bush Administration was correct to strap prisoners down, prevent them from breathing, and force water into their lungs to terrify them with the sensation of drowning; that it was proper to intimidate them with dogs, slam heads into walls, and deprive them of sleep and darkness; but also that these tactics didn’t amount to torture, just “enhanced interrogations.” They would strenuously object if George W. Bush’s obituary mentioned that,…

    CIA Orchestrated Syrian Opposition Crumbles

    Kurt Nimmo Infowars.com March 25, 2013 The CIA has sent forth its potted plant to rule over Syria – but only if it can manage to defeat the Syrian army and remove Bashar al-Assad, either by Russian aircraft or in the same way Moammar Gaddafi was removed. The CIA’s man is Ghassan Hitto, the provisional prime minister of a wobbly interim government established by the Syrian opposition National Coalition – a creation of the Muslim Brotherhood and Qatar — in a chaos-wracked and warlord ruled area carved out of Syria by the FSA and the agency’s al-Nusra terrorists who are indistinguishable from al-Qaeda. “Ghassan Hitto has won,” coalition member Hisham…

    Beware The Consequences of Pre-Emptive War

    By Ron Paul Last year more US troops died by suicide than died in combat in Afghanistan. More than 20 percent of military personnel deployed to combat will develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Some 32 percent of US soldiers reported depression after deployments. More than 20 percent of active-duty military are on potentially dangerous psychotropic drugs; many are on multiple types. Violent crime among active duty military members increased 31 percent between 2006-2011. The statistics, compiled by the military last year, are as telling as they are disturbing. The Defense Department scrambles to implement new programs to better treat the symptoms. They implement new substance abuse and psychological counseling programs…
