Obama’s Syria Strategy

Obama's Syria Strategy by Stephen Lendman It's lawless. Ruthless, Transparent. Islamic State (IS) fighters hold mostly Kurdish-populated Kobani along Turkey's border under siege.

On October 8, it headlined "Turkey... Continue Reading →

Saber Rattling Ahead of Resumed Ukraine Conflict

Saber Rattling Ahead of Resumed Ukraine Conflict by Stephen Lendman US-controlled NATO operates lawlessly. It's a killing machine. A monster threatening world peace and stability. Anders Fogh Rassmussen is gone.  Jens Stoltenberg replaced him. He did so seamlessly. He's an imperial tool.  A puppet serving US interests. His marching orders are clear. Instituting Washington's policy. ... Continue Reading →

Heading for Ground War in Syria and Iraq

Heading for Ground War in Syria and Iraq by Stephen Lendman Believe nothing Obama says. His policies are polar opposite duplicitous rhetoric. Big Lies repeat one after another.

Obama’s Economy

Obama's Economy by Stephen Lendman Obama disgraces the office he holds. He exceeds the worst of his predecessors.  His imperial foreign policy risks global war. His domestic anti-populist one transformed the world's richest economy into a house of cards. Thirdworldized. A dystopian backwater. So-called recovery is fake. It’s illusory. It doesn't exist. Protracted Main Street... Continue Reading →

Illusory Ceasefire in Ukraine

Illusory Ceasefire in Ukraine by Stephen Lendman Conflict continues. Peace is a convenient illusion. Fascists don't wage wars to quit.  Washington manipulates events destructively.

Straightaway after assuming power, oligarch president Petro Poroshenko said: "The first steps that we will take at the beginning... Continue Reading →

Joe Biden’s Rhetorical Ineptness

Joe Biden's Rhetorical Ineptness by Stephen Lendman His intellect is sorely lacking. His Senate years were notably unimpressive. He's skilled at putting his foot in his mouth. He reinvents history.

Irresponsible NYT Putin Bashing

Irresponsible NYT Putin Bashing by Stephen Lendman A previous article called The Times a machine for manufacturing Big Lies. It did so for good reason. It buries hard truths on issues mattering most. It substitutes managed news misinformation.  It does so repeatedly. Consistently. Disgracefully. When it comes to US/Russian relations, Obama's imperial designs go unexplained. ...

Propaganda War on Islamic State Militants

Propaganda War on Islamic State Militants by Stephen Lendman Washington uses ISIS/ISIL/Islamic state (IS), Nusra Front, Al Qaeda and likeminded groups strategically as enemies and allies. At times, simultaneously.  In the 1980s, CIA-recruited mujahideen fighters battled Afghanistan's Soviet occupiers.    Ronald Reagan called them "the moral equivalent of our founding fathers." They're today's Taliban despite... Continue Reading →
