General Petraeus's Secret Ops

If President Obama knew about this, authorized it and still supports it, then Obama has crossed a red line, and the president will stand revealed as an aggressive, militaristic liberal interventionist who bears a closer resemblance to the president he succeeded than to the ephemeral reformer that he pretended to be in 2008, when he ran for office.

Shaping the story on Iran

by Philip Giraldi


There have been recent reports that Iran has enabled the travel of al-Qaeda leaders to Afghanistan and Pakistan where they will be able to confront and kill American soldiers. If you think you have heard the story before, you have, in another context. In the earlier rendition it was Saddam Hussein who was hand-in-glove with al-Qaeda, helping the group in its nefarious planning to attack the United States and kill Americans. Saddam, who was in reality only a threat to his own people, was on the receiving end of a barrage of fabricated information claiming that he was secretly developing weapons of mass destruction and clandestinely dealing with the terrorists who were responsible for 9/11. Or so the story goes. And now it is Iran’s turn and the story and the storytellers are exactly the same...

Iran Sanctions 'Holding Up Nuclear Treaty Negotiations'

By David Usborne in New York

Not another war, Mr. President!

by Justin Raimondo


Nothing, but nothing, is going to get in the way of this administration’s path to war with Iran. This was brought home in a dramatic way when the Brazilians and the Turks announced Iran had agreed to implement the nuclear exchange deal proposed by the US some seven months ago: the Iranians agreed to turn over most of their fissionable material in exchange for fuel rods and technical assistance that would enable them to produce medical-grade materials. Peace seemed to be breaking out all over — but not if the US government and its allies on the UN Security Council could help it. They refused to take yes for an answer, and promptly announced they were proceeding with the sanctions campaign...

Humiliating Turkey and Brazil

By Gary's Choices

It turns out that this lifted middle finger was not limited to Iran. Only hours before Clinton's announcement, the foreign minister of Turkey held his own press conference.

Take the Deal, Mr. President

By Pat Buchanan

U.N. Security Council meets on Israeli raid



Israel faced condemnation and questions Monday at an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting called by Turkey on the Israeli military’s storming of a six-ship flotilla of pro-Palestinian activists headed to Gaza with aid supplies. At least nine activists died in clashes that injured seven Israeli soldiers. Israel contends the flotilla intended to break its blockade of Gaza, while Palestinian leaders and allies said Israel launched an unprovoked military assault on civilians...

The Mediterranean Massacre

by Justin Raimondo


In understanding how the Israelis justify killing sixteen civilians in international waters — and kidnapping hundreds — we have to look at it from the viewpoint of a savage. Now I don’t mean by that term someone necessarily wearing animal skins, and wielding a club: savages can wear Armani suits, and wield nuclear weapons, as the history of the twentieth century attests. In the West, however, the culture and especially religious belief prevents the celebration of savagery as civic virtue: when we commit atrocities, we justify it as a proportionate use of force in retaliation for previous acts of aggression by the victims of our wrath. Hiroshima and Nagasaki — and the arguments used to buttress the case for killing hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians — come to mind. The death of innocents is explained away as ‘collateral damage.’ The savage mind, however, works differently. Shorn of what we would recognize as a moral sense, the savage glories in his capacity for pitiless violence...

America’s complicity in evil

by Paul Craig Roberts

As I write at 5pm on Monday, May 31, all day has passed since the early morning reports of the Israeli commando attack on the unarmed ships carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza, and there has been no response from President Obama except to say that he needed to learn ‘all the facts about this morning’s tragic events’ and that Israeli prime minister Netanyahu had canceled his plans to meet with him at the White House. Thus has Obama made America complicit once again in Israel’s barbaric war crimes. Just as the US Congress voted to deep-six Judge Goldstone’s report on Israel’s war crimes committed in Israel’s January 2009 invasion of Gaza, Obama has deep-sixed Israel’s latest act of barbarism by pretending that he doesn’t know what has happened...

Israeli Attack on Flotilla Sparks Wave of International Protests

Nora Barrows-Friedman, Truthout: "Rami al-Meghari watched the news unfold from live video feeds monitoring international waters 65km off the coast of the Gaza Strip Monday morning, one of Gaza's 1.5 million residents anticipating a shipment of wheelchairs, prefabricated homes, crayons, raw construction supplies, dental surgery equipment and reams of paper brought by international humanitarian activists on board a flotilla of boats."

US Navy Veterans Continue to Seek Justice for Israeli Attack

Dahr Jamail, Truthout: "The Israeli military has attacked a flotilla of international peace activists, killing as many as 19 innocent civilians while they were carrying ten tons of aid to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza.

Ira Chernus, Truthout: "Debate rages around the world about the Israeli attack on the humanitarian flotilla headed to Gaza. And it should rage. As Martin Luther King Jr., said, an injustice to one is an injustice to all. But the debate that matters most - the one that will decide the fate of Palestinians and Israelis alike - is going on inside the Oval Office."

At least 19 people were reportedly killed and dozens injured when Israeli troops boarded the 6-ship Freedom Flotilla convoy in international waters and immediately fired live ammunition at the people on board the ships."
