Baiting Obama to ‘Shock and Awe’

Official Washington’s armchair warriors are pounding their drums again, demanding a larger U.S. invasion of Syria and decrying President Obama as “feckless” for showing some restraint. But these hawks offer little thinking about the consequences of another long-term occupation, says ex-CIA analyst Paul R. Pillar.

Politico Reports Bush Knew 2001 Terror-Attack was Imminent and Wanted It

A stunning news-report at Politico on November 12th, titled «The Attacks Will Be Spectacular», reveals that the then CIA Director George Tenet, and his anti-terror chief Cofer Black, say that they had told the White House this, but that the response coming back to them was «We’re not quite ready to consider this. We don’t want the clock to start ticking.» As Politoco’s reporter, Chris Whipple, then explains: «(Translation: they did not want a paper trail to show that they’d been warned.)»...

Ten years on, Iraq Lies in Ruins as New Evidence confirms U.S. used Death Squads to Manufacture ‘Civil War’

Ten years ago, more or less to the day, I wrote the following on the then Signs of the Times page:  “As I sit here, a motion in the UK House of commons has been defeated by some 415 votes to 149. Not that any other result would have stopped the US, yet it signifies a full green light for the attack on Iraq. Bush’s ‘ultimatum’ to Saddam expires at midnight (GMT) Thursday (7pm EST). “Shock and Awe” (read “death and destruction”) may come at any time between now and then. We have at most one day, one day left to ponder at the edge of the abyss before the coming darkness engulfs us all.

Donald Trump Says the U.S. Should Have Stolen Iraqis’ Oil After Destroying their Country

On Sunday the 25th of October, Republican U.S. Presidential aspirant Donald Trump was interviewed on CNN’s “State of the Union” show, and was asked about Iraq. He said, “I told you very early on, if we’re going to leave, take the oil.” He then repeated this theme again, in this CNN interview: “And I said, take the oil when we leave. But we shouldn’t have really left.” So: he thinks that the U.S. occupation of Iraq should have continued on, and should be continuing, and that the U.S. should have “taken” Iraq’s oil. But he added that, “We shouldn’t have gotten in” to Iraq in the first place.

No Shame for U.S. 2003 Invasion of Iraq? The Meaning of This

Germany was ashamed of having invaded Poland under a false pretext, etc.; but the U.S. is not ashamed of having secretly overthrown Iran’s democracy in 1953 and of having installed dictatorship there; nor of having invaded Iraq and created Iraq’s civil war in 2003, etc. (there are many such examples)...

Turkey Paves Way for Another Cuban Crisis

Turkey has downed a Russian SU-24 Fencer bomber which posed no threat to its security. This act of provocation against Russia is unprecedented in the modern history. It greatly exacerbates the global situation. It also proves the existence of a very dangerous geopolitical trend directly related to the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, which have already become NATO or EU members, or cherish the dream of joining these organizations (often at any price)...
