What’s Next for Syria?

What's Next for Syria? by Stephen Lendman Conflict drags on interminably. Dozens or more die daily. Syrian forces outmatch Western-backed death squad terrorists. They're not rebels. They're lawless invaders.  They're US proxy fighters. They're imported from dozens of countries. They're waging war against sovereign Syrian independence. Don't expect duplicitous Western politicians or media scoundrels to... Continue Reading →

Venezuela Bashing

Venezuela Bashing by Stephen Lendman It's not new. It's longstanding. Washington targets Bolivarian principles. They shame American injustice.  Both countries are constitutional worlds apart. They're polar opposites. Venezuela reflects government of, by and for everyone equitably and fairly. America serves wealth, power and privilege alone. Venezuela's proudly independent. Chavez deserves full credit. Nicolas Maduro carries... Continue Reading →

Israel’s Duplicitous Prisoner Release Offer

Israel's Duplicitous Prisoner Release Offer by Stephen Lendman Israeli agreements, offers, and other concessions aren't worth the paper they're written on.

It's... Continue Reading →

EU Guidelines on Israel: Part II

EU Guidelines on Israel: Part II by Stephen Lendman A previous article discussed them in detail. They're largely old wine in new bottles. They're more bark than bite.

West Bank and East Jerusalem communities face multiple daily Israeli incursions.  Israel... Continue Reading →

Russia Bashing Redux

Russia Bashing Redux by Stephen Lendman At issue is independent governance. Washington tolerates it nowhere. It wants all rivals eliminated.

US Courts Approve Indefinite Detention and Torture

US Courts Approve Indefinite Detention and Torture by Stephen Lendman America's a police state. It's ruthless. Iron fist authority rules. International law's quaint and out-of-date. US statute protections aren't worth the paper they're written on.  Constitutional rights don't matter. They never did for most people. It's truer now than ever. They're null and void. Executive...

America’s Surveillance Society

America's Surveillance Society by Stephen Lendman It's not new. It's longstanding. State-of-the-art technology makes it easy. It's more intrusive than ever.
