NATO’s Kosovo War, 11 Years Later

By Ambassador James Bissett for Balkan Studies Eleven years ago NATO opened its bombing campaign against Serbia, illegally and without provocation. It started on March 24, 1999, and continued for 78 days and nights. It was the most intensive air offensive suffered by any country since the end of the Second World War. Over a thousand people were killed and the civilian infrastructure of Serbia was destroyed, but it proved

Full Circle: NATO Completes Takeover Of Former Yugoslavia

by Rick Rozoff for Stop NATO In 1991 the North Atlantic Treaty Organization was a nominally defensive military bloc with sixteen members that, as the cliche ran, had never fired a shot. In 1991 the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was the only simultaneously multiethnic and multiconfessional nation (entirely) in Europe, consisting of six federated republics with diverse constituencies. By 2009 NATO had grown to 28 full members and at

The Afghan ant hole

NATO plans for Afghanistan this year are shaping up nicely: negotiate with the Taliban, but at the same time kill them in Kandahar and Kunduz, observes Eric Walberg A joint operation involving several thousand troops was launched in Kandahar last week, the second one this year after Operation Mushtarak in Helmand province. Kandahar has been the bailiwick of 2,500 contingent of Canadian troops who have suffered heavy losses in this

9/11 – The US Military Knows Israel Did It

(again, thanks to AA for the pointer to this podcast! VS) Interview of Dr. Alan Sabrosky, former director of studies at the US Army War College, who claims that it is 100% certain that 9/11 was a Mossad operation. Listen to the audio of this interview: Powered by Commentary: I think that there is a lot of indirect evidence pointing at the fact that Israel had a key role

Zionism Unmasked: The Dark Face Of Jewish Nationalism

(many thanks to AA for pointing me in the direction of Dr. Saborsky! VS) by Dr.Alan Sabrosky for the Sabbah report Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu once remarked to a Likud gathering that “Israel is not like other countries.” Oddly enough for him, that time he was telling the truth, and nowhere is that more evident than with Jewish nationalism, whether or not one pins the “Zionist” label on it.

The 9/11 Truth Gestapo

One of the main reasons which kept me away from the 9/11 Truth movement for 8 years was the tone and tactics of some of the most vocal members of the 9/11T movement. The video below is a perfect example of the kind of tactics these guys use: Seeing this video made me recall one evening in Melbourne, FL, where I had travelled to listen to Amy Goodman make a

Kucinich crumbles under pressure

So after many days of hyper-pious rhetoric Dennis Kucinich is reversing his decision and announces that he will vote for the Big Pharma health(not)care bill. I think that I hate Democratic politicians even more than the more openly evil Republican colleagues. This shameful surrender by the last Democrat who tried to act like he had a spine reminds me of the song “Whoever wins in November” by David Rovics (listen

ZOG’s committment to genocide in Palestine: “unwavering, unbreakable, unshakable”

Yesterday I posted a recent AIPAC statement in which the Israel Lobby in essence demanded that the Obama administration desist from its complaints about the recent humiliation of VP Biden in Israel. Sure enough, the entire US ruling class immediately jumped to attention. Take, for example, the statements of US Congress members which immediately issued statement of loyalty to the Israel Lobby. As for the Executive Branch – we all

Euro crisis: Latvia and the PIGS

Down on the Euro Animal Farm, some animals are more equal than others, finds Eric Walberg Two million people took to the streets of Athens last week in the country’s second general strike this month, protesting the austerity measures proposed by their socialist government. All of Greece came to a 24-hour standstill and the airport was closed as a result of the action. The only public transport was the commuter

And now, a short message from the “crazies”

AIPAC CALLS RECENT STATEMENTS BY THEU.S. GOVERNMENT “A MATTER OF SERIOUS CONCERN”URGES OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO WORK TO IMMEDIATELY DEFUSE THE TENSION WITH ISRAEL The Obama Administration’s recent statements regarding the U.S. relationship with Israel are a matter of serious concern. AIPAC calls on the Administration to take immediate steps to defuse the tension with the Jewish State. Israel is America’s closest ally in the Middle East. The foundation of the

Has the countdown to the bombing of Iran begun?

by Rob Edwards for the Herald Scotland Hundreds of powerful US “bunker-buster” bombs are being shipped from California to the British island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean in preparation for a possible attack on Iran. The Sunday Herald can reveal that the US government signed a contract in January to transport 10 ammunition containers to the island. According to a cargo manifest from the US navy, this included

Georgia’s internal politics turn into a sad show of paranoid buffoonery (UPDATED!)

Civil Georgia reports: A 30-minute long fake report by Imedi television station on Saturday evening as if Russian troops were advancing to Tbilisi triggered panic and also wave of anger on the television station, which has a nationwide broadcasting. In a brief notice to viewers before the launch of the report, the television station told viewers it was “a simulation” of what might happen in case Russian plans materialize. But

Biden: You Don’t Have to be Jewish to be a Zionist

Israel National News reports: U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden on Tuesday laid a wreath at the tomb of Theodor Herzl. He is the first world leader to do so, based on new regulations issued by the Knesset Committee for Symbols and Ceremonies, which decided to include the site as one of the places foreign dignitaries will be taken to on visits to Israel. This year is the 150th anniversary of Herzl’s
