How to Start an Unnecessary War

Targeting Iran started before 2016 I confess to being mystified by those Americans who lean conservative, like myself, who continue to think that President Donald J. Trump is somehow doing a good job. To be sure, the economy continues to add mostly low paying jobs but claims that the new tax law benefits the middle […]

Pandering to Israel Means War With Iran

The United States is moving dangerously forward in what appears to be a deliberate attempt to provoke a war with Iran, apparently based on threat intelligence provided by Israel. The claims made by National Security Advisor John Bolton and by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that there is solid evidence of Iran’s intention to attack US […]

Who Is Killing Whom in the Middle East? Blaming Iran Might be an Excuse for War

  Newsweek is reporting a story regarding how Iran “was responsible for the deaths of at least 608 American troops in Iraq between 2003 and 2011.” The account is sourced to a newly revised estimate prepared by analysts at the Pentagon that was discussed by Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook at a State Department press briefing […]

An Iran War Would Destroy the United States

  The establishment of a military force to go abroad and overthrow governments does not appear anywhere in the Constitution of the United States, nor does calling for destruction of countries that do not themselves threaten America appear anywhere in Article 2, which describes the responsibilities of the President. Indeed, both Presidents George Washington and […]

The Madness Gripping Washington

  The United States and Israel have been threatening Iran for something like twenty years, using the pretext that it was developing a nuclear weapon initially, but also more recently declaring that Tehran has become a threat to the entire Middle East. Both contentions are essentially lies, concocted by an Israel and Saudi Arabia that […]

The Israeli roots of Trump’s “Muslim Ban”

With just a single exception, all of these countries were targeted for attack by certain top U.S. officials in 2001. In fact, that policy had roots that went back to 1996, 1991, 1980, and even the 1950s. Trump’s action continues policies influenced by people working on behalf of a foreign country, whose goal has been to […]

Welcome to Greater Israel! The tail will be wagging the dog under Donald Trump

The problem with Israel and its friends is that they are never satisfied and never leave the rest of us Americans alone, pushing constantly at what is essentially an open door. They have treated the United States like a doormat, spying on us more than any ostensibly friendly nation while pocketing our $38 billion donation […]

Jeffrey Goldberg & Aaron Miller, pro-Israel Iranophobes

Both Jeffrey Goldberg and Aaron David Miller are members of a hearty band of pro-Israel intellectuals and journalists.  Both harbor deep hostility toward Iran which is nothing less than Iranophobia… Through his young adulthood, Goldberg was a devout follower of Meir Kahane… By Richard Silverstein, Tikkun Olam Despite the P5+1 nuclear deal between Iran and western powers including […]

The Contrived Iran Threat: Another phony excuse for endless war

Iran was not building a nuke and much of the information used to bolster the argument being made turned out to be fabricated by the Israelis themselves… Iran may be many things depending on one’s perspective, but it is not a global or even much of a regional threat. By Philip Giraldi The Israeli Minister of […]
