War of Words on Iran

War of Words on Iran by Stephen Lendman If words could kill, imperial Washington long ago would have returned Iran to its nightmarish Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi days. Propaganda wars rage daily. Tehran is wrongfully called an existential threat. Imagine a country wanting peace accused of belligerent intents. Repeating it enough times gets people to... Continue Reading →

Saving a Failed System

Saving a Failed System by Stephen Lendman Combining 17 dissimilar countries under one monetary/fiscal system assured disaster waiting to happen. One size fits all rules don't work. Euro expert Bernard Connolly knew it before the euro's 1998 introduction.  Saying so cost him his job as EU monetary affairs department head. He called the euro system... Continue Reading →

Troubling Israeli Religious Fundamentalism

Troubling Israeli Religious Fundamentalism by Stephen Lendman Islamic fundamentalism is vilified in the West. Extremist Jews are largely ignored. In Israel they're dangerous. They influence  government policy. They seek control of Israel's rabbinical system. Last January, Haaretz reported that ultra-Orthodox Shas party members used "improper methods bordering on the criminal (to get) its people appointed... Continue Reading →

New York Times Pro-Israeli Bias

New York Times Pro-Israeli Bias by Stephen Lendman The New York Times has a longstanding history of pro-Israeli bias.

Syrian False Flag Planned?

Syrian False Flag Planned? by Stephen Lendman Never bet against Washington's imperial plans. New tactics follow failed ones. Efforts to oust Assad continue. Proxy killers can't do it alone. They're no match against Syria's superior military strength. It's committed to rout them. Expect NATO intervention anytime or perhaps post-US November elections. Libya 2.0 looks increasingly...

Lawless National Security Letters

Lawless National Security Letters by Stephen Lendman American freedom always was weak. It's now on life support. Numerous police state laws followed 9/11. Rights most people take for granted are on the chopping block for elimination. Big Brother spying alone eroded them. It's ongoing lawlessly in many forms.  So-called National Security Letters (NSLs) is one... Continue Reading →

Japan: America’s Imperial Proxy

Japan: America's Imperial Proxy by Stephen Lendman On August 15, 1945, Japan announced its surrender. On September 2, WW II officially ended. Japanese Foreign Affairs Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu's formalized it aboard the USS Missouri. Both dates signify VJ (Victory over Japan) or VP (Victory in the Pacific) Day. End of war meant occupation. General Douglas... Continue Reading →

Anti-Iranian Hysteria

Anti-Iranian Hysteria by Stephen Lendman Western media, hard right commentators, and pro-Israeli groups feature regular anti-Iranian denigration, slander, misinformation and lies. Respecting its sovereignty is verboten. Regime change is prioritized. All means are OK, including war, mass killing and destruction. Warmongers relish it. Rhetoric tries justifying it. Responsibility to protect (R2P) and humanitarian intervention are... Continue Reading →
