Why is Guantanamo Bay, the American-run torture chamber, still open 18 years after it opened its gates to lock up alleged terrorists that turned out to be ordinary people caught in the US dragnet in 2001?
Among all the states in the world, the US has the dubious distinction of not only using atomic weapons against Japan in 1945, it is also responsible for creating germs that have resulted in the eruption of the deadly Lyme Disease.
As America’s infrastructure crumbles and tens of millions of Americans live in abject poverty, the military-industrial-banking complex insist on more wars to line their pockets by further impoverishing the people.
By standing firm on its principled stand, Islamic Iran was able to get its oil tanker released from UK-Gibraltar pirates and refused to make a deal to release the British tanker involved in illegal activities.
Last month there were several incidents in the Persian Gulf that have raised fears of a shooting war between Iran and the US and its sidekick Britain. The rogue regimes in Washington and London are playing with fire.
The Americans and the British continue to indulge in illegal acts against Iran while threatening “grave consequences” if Tehran does not submit to their demands. Iran refuses to surrender its sovereignty and dignity.
When the Americans and their allies first attacked and occupied Afghanistan, they thought it would be a cakewalk. Nearly 18 years later, the Americans are begging the Taliban to allow them a safe retreat!
American hegemony and unilateralism are over. More countries are challenging US diktat. From Syria to Venezuela, US disruptive policies and regime change agendas have been defeated.
Donald Trump is a narcissist and exhibitionist. He demanded—and got—tanks and planes for his 4th of July parade at the Lincoln Memorial but nature did not take kindly to it.
The Washington war dogs’ loud barking is an attempt to camouflage the total failure of their policy vis-à-vis Islamic Iran. Trump and his mad dog advisors have gone berserk and don’t know what to do.
US threats against Russia and China are nothing new; this has been Washington’s policy since 1992 articulated by the notorious Zionist warmonger, Paul Wolfowitz. The result is Russia and China are getting closer to each other and shifting the balance of power to Eurasia.
It is astonishing that a number of attacks on oil tankers in the Persian Gulf and a rocket blasted near the US embassy in Iraq’s Green Zone have not ignited a full scale conflagration in the volatile region.
By shooting down a US spy drone that deliberately violated Iranian air space, Tehran has signaled that it will defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity with full force.
After huffing and puffing like the big bad wolf for several weeks against the Islamic Republic of Iran, Donald Trump was forced to make a climb-down. On a visit to Tokyo on May 27, Trump said he was not after “regime change” in Iran; he only wanted to make sure they do not have nuclear weapons. Iran does not, but who gave Trump the right to decide that anyway?
Six rounds of talks have been held between the Taliban and US representatives in Doha, Qatar. Based on Western media reports, most people are under the impression that the talks are aimed at securing a safe withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan.
The Americans have lost to the Taliban in Afghanistan. What is euphemistically referred to as “negotiations” are really the terms of American surrender to be able to safely withdraw their forces from Afghanistan.
If Donald Trump is smart—a big if—he should do in Afghanistan what Richard Nixon did in Vietnam: declare victory and get the hell out. Staying put, as the Washington warlords are demanding, would merely prolong America’s misery.
That the US was forced to choose drab Warsaw in the middle of winter to hold an anti-Iran hate fest that few major European powers attended merely exposed US isolation.
The Americans are dishonest to the core. Not surprisingly, the Taliban do not trust them one bit. The Americans want to retain military bases in Afghanistan; the Taliban will have none of this. Who can blame them?
Staring defeat in the Hindu Kush mountains, the Americans have come up with other delusional proposals to destabilize neighboring Pakistan and stay in war-torn Afghanistan.
