Washington’s Secret Agendas by PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS

One might think that by now even Americans would have caught on to the constant stream of false alarms that Washington sounds in order to deceive the people into supporting its hidden agendas.

The public fell for the lie that the Taliban in Afghanistan are terrorists allied with al Qaeda. Americans fought a war for 13 years that enriched Dick Cheney’s firm, Halliburton, and other private interests only to end in another Washington failure.

The public fell for the lie that Saddam Hussein in Iraq had “weapons of mass destruction” that were a threat to America and that if the US did not invade Iraq Americans risked a “mushroom cloud going up over an American city.” With the rise of ISIS, this long war apparently is far from over. Billions of dollars more in profits will pour into the coffers of the US military security complex as Washington fights those who are redrawing the false Middle East boundaries created by the British and French after WW I when the British and French seized territories of the former Ottoman Empire.

Washington Piles Lie Upon Lie by PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS

The latest Washington lie, this one coming from NATO, is that Russia has invaded Ukraine with 1,000 troops and self-propelled artillery.

How do we know that this is a lie? Is it because we have heard nothing but lies about Russia from NATO, from US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, from assistant secretary of state Victoria Nuland, from Obama and his entire regime of pathological liars, and from the British, German, and French governments along with the BBC and the entirety of the Western media?

This, of course, is a good reason for knowing that the latest Western propaganda is a lie. Those who are pathological liars don’t suddenly start telling the truth. Continue reading

Obama’s “Catastrophic Defeat” in Ukraine by MIKE WHITNEY

“We are currently witnessing an epic and historic event. The Ukrainian regular army and the punitive battalions are suffering a catastrophic defeat to the south of Donetsk…..It still is not quite clear how the Junta intends to avoid a complete defeat here…. By squandering the most combat-capable brigades in systematic offensive operations, the Junta sustained enormous losses and at the same time suffered a crushing, purely military defeat. The southern front has collapsed.” – The Southern Front Catastrophe– August 27, 2014″, Colonel Cassad, Military Briefing, Novorossiya, Ukraine

“The reports out of Novorussia (New Russia) are nothing short of incredible… sources are reporting that Novorussian forces have bypassed Mariupol from the north and have entered the Zaporozhie region!” – News from the Front, Vineyard of the Saker

Barack Obama has pushed Ukraine to the brink of political, economic and social collapse. Now he wants to blame Russia for the damage he’s done. It’s absurd. Moscow is in no way responsible for Ukraine’s descent into anarchy. That’s all Washington’s doing, just as Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and now Syria were Washington’s doing. If you want to blame someone, blame Obama. Continue reading

A Dear Jon (Voight) Letter About Gaza and the History of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

JON VOIGHT

Dear Jon Voight,

We write to you as admirers of your work for many years. We are also professors of modern Middle Eastern studies, specializing on the history and contemporary realities of Israel, Zionism and Palestine, and between the two of us, we have written and edited over half a dozen books on the country and the two peoples who are destined — or doomed, depending on your point of view — to share it.

War and the Danger of “False Flags”: When Governments Apply the Old Schoolyard Bully Trick: “He Hit Me First!”

The Schoolyard Bully Is Still Using His Old Trick

The schoolyard bully is caught standing over the skinny,  bloodied kid lying on the ground.

The teacher asks what happened.

The bully yells: “He hit me first!”   Then he grabs his nose and pretends that he’s hurt.

This tactic is so common that there are 3.6 million Google hits for the phrase “bully pretends to be the victim”.

Wikipedia notes:

Victim playing by abusers is either:

  • diverting attention away from acts of abuse by claiming that the abuse was justified based on another person’s bad behavior (typically the victim)
  • soliciting sympathyfrom others in order to gain their assistance in supporting or  enabling the abuse of a victim ….

It is common for abusers to engage in victim playing.

It’s the oldest trick in the book … but Americans are still falling for it. Continue reading

Is Israel’s Operation Protective Edge Really About Natural Gas? – by TASCHA SHAHRIARI-PARSA

While many articles have debunked the myth that Israel is acting out of “self-defense,” very few have attempted to establish why Israel iscontinuing its assault on Palestine through Operation Protective Edge, aside from the supposition that Zionists have a fanatic penchant for drawing Palestinian blood. Behind the operation, behind the mass Israeli and U.S. propaganda attempting to justify the massacre, and behind the death of every child in Gaza is a conflict rarely discussed, an imperialist conflict and a contradiction that rests on Israel’s ambitions to appropriate and profit from Gaza’s natural gas resources.
