John Kerry’s Colin Powell Moment

John Kerry's Colin Powell Moment by Stephen Lendman All wars are based on lies. Truth prevents them from being waged. America hasn't waged a legal one since WW II.  What's now ongoing bears eerie resemblance to events preceding Bush's Iraq war. Waging them requires pretexts to do so.  When none exists, they're invented. Lies substitute... Continue Reading →

Cheerleading War

Cheerleading War by Stephen Lendman When America goes to war or plans one, media scoundrels march in lockstep. Might justifies right. Imperial priorities are suppressed. Wars of aggression are called liberating ones. Bombs away is called humanitarian intervention. Nations are destroyed to free them. Plunder is called economic development. So is exploitation.  Unchallenged imperial control... Continue Reading →

Israel Poised to Attack Syria? by Stephen Lendman Israel partners with Washington's regional wars.

Pentagon Preparing for War on Syria

Pentagon Preparing for War on Syria by Stephen Lendman Washington's rage for war won't quit. It sacrifices truth. Big Lies substitute. Syria bears no responsibility for Wednesday's incident.

They ignore... Continue Reading →

Selling War on Syria

Selling War on Syria by Stephen Lendman Waging war requires manufacturing consent. Public opinion's manipulated to do so. Big Lies substitute for full and accurate reporting.

It's waging war on... Continue Reading →

Britain’s Middle East Spy Station

Britain's Middle East Spy Station by Stephen Lendman It doesn't surprise. Washington operates the same way. It's longstanding imperial policy. It relates to waging war on freedom.

He categorically denies... Continue Reading →
