As calls increased by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and NATO military commander General Philip Breedlove, among others, for lethal military equipment to be shipped by the United States to the putschist regime of Ukraine, a flurry of Ukrainian cargo transports landing at military supply airports in the United States and Europe hearkened back to the days when non-descript transports plied the world’s air routes clandestinely and simultaneously delivering weapons to Iran and Nicaraguan rebel forces.

Yes, ISIS Burned a Man Alive: White Americans Did the Same Thing to Black People by the Thousands

Yes, ISIS Burned a Man Alive: White Americans Did the Same Thing to Black People by the ThousandsFor almost a century, the United States practiced a unique cultural ritual that was as least as gruesome as the "medieval" punishments meted out by ISIS against its foes.

What is now known as "spectacular lynching" involved the ceremonial torture, murder--and yes, burning alive--of black Americans by whites. Like ISIS's use of digital media to circulate images of the torturous death of Muadh al Kasasbeh by fire, the spectacular lynchings of the black body were shared via postcards and other media.

A Trail of Lies – The West’s Propaganda War Against Russia | The Barricade

A Trail of Lies – The West’s Propaganda War Against Russia | The BarricadeCall it the ‘cold war 2.0′ or the continuation of the first, but there is no denying the absolute destruction of any form of constructive partnership between the West and Russia. This break in already shaky ties has been spearheaded by an all-out propaganda campaign aimed at demonizing Russia and its people. This program, initiated by the United States, has for the most part succeeded in creating an atmosphere in which any accusation or unverified ‘report’ can be taken to its illogical extreme with the aim of distorting perceptions of Russia and its leaders.

  Mission Imperative: Why the West and Kiev Regime Must Kill the Truth  :  Information Clearing House - ICHThe detention, incommunicado, of two female Russian journalists over the weekend by Kiev’s secret police, the SBU, was said to be on the grounds of «national security». That admission by the Kiev authorities, ironically, reveals more than is intended. Journalists «armed» only with cameras threatening national security, you may ask? Yes, you better believe it – because any truth being reported about the nature of the Western-backed Kiev regime and its military onslaught in eastern Ukraine is indeed a very real «security threat» – the threat of being exposed for war crimes and unlawful aggression towards Russia. The legal consequences for the Kiev regime and its Western patrons would be devastating.
