  • Senators Are Quietly Meeting To Change The Sweeping Post-9/11 Military Authorization Law

    A bipartisan group of senators has quietly begun discussing a push to repeal or rewrite the broad law granting the president sweeping powers to wage war against individuals and groups across the globe.

    Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine told BuzzFeed that several lawmakers have held informal conversations on possible changes to the 9/11-era rules of war on terrorism, known as the Authorization for the Use of Military Force.

  • Media Bias: Parroting a “New Cold War” which Threatens America

    If American media seem filled these days with bellicose, jingoistic, uniform perspectives on a new Cold War, that’s probably because so many news outlets can’t seem to help themselves when it comes to framing new events in the tired terms of the last generation’s ingrained propaganda. At a time that needs fresh contemplation, even people like Amy Goodman on Democracy NOW are talking about recent events in and around Ukraine as having “sparked the worst East-West crisis since the end of the Cold War” or words to more extreme effect.

  • Imperialism’s game of empires

    As Western and Russian rulers rattle sabres, Simon Basketter says we must take on a system that drives the world to war

  • Russians are coming!

    Ukraine just happened to be a conveniently available ideal to put Americans entrenched status and Western European odyssey into spotlight but with a revamped force of achieving the strategic goals and to enhance the Russian lost vision of invincible Empire. So far, nobody could dare to disturb the progressive dream turned into attainable reality in weeks and days to foresee Crimea annexed into the Russian Federation and Ukraine being put under watchful guidance and controlled maneuverability of the Russian foreign policy objectives.

  • ‘Must be joking’

    On March 2, Secretary of State John Kerry described Russia’s action in Crimea as “an incredible act of aggression … You just don’t, in the 21st century, behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pretext,” he said. And on March 17, President Barack Obama declared, “Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity must be respected, and international law must be upheld.”

    Messrs. Kerry and Obama must be joking!

    The U.S. invaded Iraq and Afghanistan “on completely trumped up pretexts.” (If you still believe George Bush had legitimate reasons to attack Iraq, please read the transcript of his press conference of Aug. 21, 2006. There, he confessed that both his “reasons” were bogus.)

  • Ukraine: the US’ hypocritical transference – Prof. Edward Herman

    Ukraine is a perfect example of how the US uses the worst elements of a society to do their dirty work in other countries and how the US/NATO has a problem finding honest quislings. Since the US favors the nazi coup in Ukraine they talk about sovereignty and the right to self-determination of the Crimean people is made into some outrageous business for which Russia is demonized. John McCain, the chief chicken hawk and key “moral support” figure for the US’ insurrectionists and nazis in Ukraine, urged dissidents in Russia to rise and through that the effect of Ukrainian “freedom” would spread into Russia. McCain and the rest are engaged in subversive incitement, and once again their complete lack of intelligence and knowledge has left them looking like fools to the world. Professor Edward Herman spoke to the Voice of Russia regarding these issues and more.
