Article: Pushing Toward The Final War | OpEdNews

Article: Pushing Toward The Final War | OpEdNewsObama, whose government in the past few years has bullied Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Lebanon, Iran, Honduras, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Venezuela and is now trying to bully Russia, actually declared that "bigger nations can not simply bully smaller ones." What does Obama and his speech writers think Washington has been doing for the entirety of the 21st century?

Article: Does The U.S. Want War With Russia? | OpEdNews

Article: Does The U.S. Want War With Russia? | OpEdNews: Two weeks ago, when Liz Wahl quit her post as an RT host live on air claiming that she could not be part of a network that was "funded by the Russian Government" and was set on "whitewashing the crimes of Putin."

Ms. Wahl then immediately went on a tour of all the 3 mainstream corporate outlets where she seemed to be auditioning for a role on a news show where she could whitewash the blowback inducing homicidal bull in a cultural religious and geopolitical china shop of U.S. foreign policy that I like to call Manifest Destiny's Child.

Article: The Hypocritical United States of Amnesia and Russia | OpEdNews

Article: The Hypocritical United States of Amnesia and Russia | OpEdNews: During the mid-1980s, right-wing Americans loved to invoke President Reagan's observation about the Soviet Union: "They reserve unto themselves the right to commit any crime, to lie, to cheat," in order to attain a one-word Socialist or Communist state. The Soviet Union was the "Evil Empire."

But, it was the Reagan Administration, you'll recall, that ordered the execution of Operation Urgent Fury, the invasion of Grenada in October 1983. Eleven of the twelve members of the United Nations Security Council called the invasion a "flagrant violation of international law." The only Security Council member to veto the condemnation was the very country accused of the flagrant violation.

Coming Home to Roost: American Militarism, War Culture and Police Brutality

Coming Home to Roost: American Militarism, War Culture and Police Brutality"Americans love to fight, traditionally. All real Americans love the sting and clash of battle… you are here because you are real men and all real men like to fight!" The thundering voice rang out from the large box speakers situated across the damp, cement floor. " Americans love a winner! Americans will not tolerate a loser! Americans despise cowards! Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans have never lost nor will ever lose a war; for the very idea of losing is hateful to an American! " The words surged violently from the mesh screens, ostensibly louder by the second. A quick glance across the concrete quad produced a herd of silhouettes, all frantically running to their predetermined spots in the haze of a 4:00 AM-fog. "We don't want yellow cowards in this Army. They should be killed off like rats! If not, they will go home after this war and breed more cowards! The brave men will breed more brave men. Kill off the God-damned cowards and we will have a nation of brave men!" It was the summer of 1994. I was 19 years old. The words screaming from those speakers - a daily sound that I would become accustomed to over the course of a few weeks - were those of U.S. Army General George Patton (through the voice of George C. Scott). The location was Columbia, South Carolina, though it might as well have been halfway across the world because the only things I would see for the next two months were marching drills, firing ranges, fields of mud and grass, and miles upon miles of indistinguishable running terrain. This was US Army Basic Training and I was one of thousands of recruits eager to soak up the glory of "defending our country."

Why The EU Won’t Annex Ukraine

Why The EU Won’t Annex Ukraine: By Pepe Escobar

March 25, 2014 "Information Clearing House - "RT"- The new Ukraine of “Yats,” Tyahnybok and Yarosh, in a rush, signed the political points of an association agreement with the EU in a Brussels summit last Friday.

No less than 30 (unelected) EU bureaucrats also signed it, including European Council President Herman Van Rompuy and European Commission (EC) President Jose Manuel Barroso.

This is the same deal former president Viktor Yanukovich decided to scotch last November – which subsequently led to the Maidan protests, a US-supported putsch crammed with fascist and neo-nazi actors, and Moscow taking over Crimea without firing a shot.

Al Jazeera Once Again Removes Article on Palestine

Al Jazeera Once Again Removes Article on Palestine: March 25, 2014 "Information Clearing House - "Electronic Intifada"- Al Jazeera English has once again removed an article by Columbia University professor Joseph Massad hours after publishing it.

The article, “The Dahlan Factor,” appeared for several hours on the Qatar-based broadcaster’s website this morning at this link, but was later removed without explanation (the full article is republished below).

More Guardian ‘Brainwashing’ on Putin

More Guardian ‘Brainwashing’ on Putin: "I highlight this long and prominent article in the Guardian on Putin’s handling of Crimea and Ukraine because it is a master-class in brainwashing under freedom. The paper’s Moscow correspondent, Shaun Walker, is presumably well-acquainted with Russian society. He has full access to Russian media propaganda, so he knows full well Russia’s side of the argument. And he has acres of space in which to set out all the various viewpoints. And yet, he never manages to give a proper hearing to Russia’s side of the argument."

Sanctions? How About Sanctions Against the United States? | Global Research

Sanctions? How About Sanctions Against the United States? | Global Research: As the United States imposes sanctions on Russia and moves to do likewise to Venezuela, it’s essential to keep in mind which country it is that’s the most destructive and dangerous in the world today. When such questions have been posed in international polls in recent decades, the answer overwhelmingly is the United States. Not Iran, North Korea, Syria, Cuba, Venezuela, Russia or any of the many other nations the ruling class and corporate media here regularly demonize, but the United States.

Article: The US Establishment is Lying about Everything on Ukraine | OpEdNews

Article: The US Establishment is Lying about Everything on Ukraine | OpEdNews: With the cat out of the bag about exactly what type of "freedom fighters" that the US is backing in Ukraine, thanks largely to the selfie video of Svoboda party thugs pummeling a Ukranian TV executive it is obvious to any and all outside of The Homeland cocoon that the Obama regime is lying. The unified stone wall of bullshit that is the US state-corporate media parroting the official line on what was actually a neocon instigated overthrow of a democratically elected leader who had just agreed to placate protesters with early elections is truly something to behold. It brings to mind the march toward the unprovoked attack and subsequent occupation of Iraq, a country that did not even remotely threaten the US by the Bush administration and the neocon ideologues that drove policy in the early years of the new American century. The wall to wall vilification of Saddam Hussein was the prototype for the ongoing spree of demagoguery directed at Russian president Vladimir Putin and which has been so withering that it is obvious that this is all about more than Ukraine. It is about Snowden and Syria as well as a pitched battle to save what is the fully mutated form of parasitic global finance capitalism as it continues to devour and destroy.

Article: Three Who Made A War | OpEdNews

Article: Three Who Made A War | OpEdNews"If Americans were to read three history books, they could free themselves from their self-righteous delusions that endanger all life on earth. Those books are: A People's History of The United States by Howard Zinn, The Untold History of the United States by Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick, and The War Lovers by Evan Thomas."

Coming Home to Roost: American Militarism, War Culture and Police Brutality

Coming Home to Roost: American Militarism, War Culture and Police Brutality: This coercive nature naturally extends into the socio-political realm, where wealthy politicians are more than willing to use working class children as pawns of war, allowing their lives to be extinguished and bodies to be mangled for stock portfolios. This dehumanizing process also creates a world where these same politicians see citizens as nothing but fickle subjects, the government seeks to control "the mob," the soldier sees only enemies, and the police officer only criminals in desperate need of order and discipline. It is, as Vasily Grossman once warned, a society where man has ceased to exist, unavoidably being replaced with "man-like creatures that have undergone an internal transformation."[2]

Why the Impact of U.S. Sanctions on Russia Is Going to Be Exactly Zero | Alternet

Why the Impact of U.S. Sanctions on Russia Is Going to Be Exactly Zero | Alternet: "We are paying very close attention to the situation in Ukraine. We hope all parties can calmly maintain restraint to prevent the situation from further escalating and worsening. Political resolution and dialogue is the only way out."

This, via Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Li Baodong, is Beijing's quite measured, official interpretation of what's happening in Ukraine, tailored for global consumption.
