It Is Going to Be Syria’s Turn

The visuals beamed from Tripoli last night had an eerie familiarity. Cars blowing horns, Kalashnikovs firing into the air, youth and children aimlessly wandering on streets littered with heaps of debris, western cameramen eagerly lapping up the precious words in broken English by any local fellow holding forth on the […]

NATO’s Planned Bloodbath in Tripoli

NATO intends to get the bloodbath it wants through intensified terror bombing and low-level strafing of civilians and nonmilitary sites. No matter that it grossly violates international and constitutional law, what Washington-led member states long ago trashed. Through August 22, air operations included 19,877 sorties and 7,505 strike ones, with […]

Strange Days in London

Let’s begin by noting that isn’t the first time England has had the kind of unrest we’re seeing now. The first racially motivated mass riots happened in London’s Notting Hill area in 1958. It was decided afterwards to hold an annual carnival in Notting Hill, a sign, as it were, […]

What Is Going On in Tripoli?

After 6-months-long failing attempts to overthrow Gaddafi by the hands of ‘Libyan rebels’ and to weaken his regime by permanent bombings, the ‘democratic’ powers have put their last ace on table. On Saturday evening August 20, 2011 they have launched a large-scale special land operation in Tripoli with the support […]

Conquest By Assimilation

Our passive-aggressive foreign policy ensures that we do not create too much resistance to our plans, by forcing ourselves openly upon other weaker nations.  We tend to sort of back through their doors, sort of sidling-in, in a crab-like sideways motion.  The “internship” programs run by the State Dept., as […]

Libya and the End of Western Illusions

Just under half of Europeans still support the war against Libya. Their position is based on erroneous information. They still believe, in fact, that in February the “Gaddafi regime” crushed the protests in Benghazi with brutal force and bombed civilian districts in Tripoli, while the Colonel himself was warning of […]

Why Are Those Damn Kids Rioting?

The world has taken to rioting but one must be careful not to assume that because they are happening at the same time it’s for the same reason or reasons. However, to look at the UK riots and the one in Vancouver, after a hockey loss by the home team, […]

Falsified Major Media Reports on Libya

Major media specialize in what they do best: truth inversion (aka bad fiction), not doing what journalists are supposed to do – their job, especially covering imperial wars for dominance and rich spoils. With Libya’s National Transitional Council (NTC) falling apart and rebel forces in disarray, today’s headlines belie the […]

Syria: the Cost of Crisis

Syria has entered the sixth month of anti-government riots, orchestrated from abroad. Protesters no longer seek moderate reforms, they aggressively demand Bashar Assad`s resignation. Western media accuse Damascus of ‘opposing democratic changes’. The former US Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, Craig Roberts, had earlier explained what these changes were about: […]
