Iran’s Historic Anniversary

Iran's Historic Anniversary by Stephen Lendman February 11 marked the 33rd anniversary of Iran's 1979 revolution.

Khader Adnan’s Heroic Struggle for Justice

Khader Adnan's Heroic Struggle for Justice by Stephen Lendman Saturday marked his 56th hunger striking day. "My dignity is more precious than food," he said. He's willing to die courageously defending it. He's protesting his lawless detention and treatment by repressive Israeli prison authorities. They're committing willful, malicious slow-motion murder. He's uncharged because he's innocent.... Continue Reading →

NATO’s Secret War on Syria

NATO's Secret War on Syria by Stephen Lendman In January, Michel Chossudovsky reported British media confirming UK/CIA/MI6 operatives in Syria training anti-Assad Western-backed insurgents.

This is not a popular uprising. The insurrection... Continue Reading →

America’s Sham Economic Recovery

America's Sham Economic Recovery by Stephen Lendman Official government data are manipulated. Credibility's entirely lacking. Reported good news is hype. Grim underlying reality is suppressed.

A reported 243,000 nonfarm jobs reported... Continue Reading →

Duplicitous Mortgage Settlement Deal

Act Up Against ACTA

Targeting Syria and Iran

Targeting Syria and Iran by Stephen Lendman Slowed but not derailed by Russia and China vetoing its Security Council resolution, America's regime change/war plans remain on track.
