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 […]

Who Is Right on America’s Enemies?

Does the intelligence community need to go back to school?   Two weeks ago, the heads of the United States intelligence and security agencies presented their annual “Worldwide Threat Assessment Report”  to Congress. The report inevitably made front page news because it appeared to contradict President Donald Trump on a number of key points, most […]

Is Criticizing neocon thuggery anti-Semitism?

Max Boot networked his way up the neocon ladder. He was a member of the neocon Project for a New American Century and now sits on the heavily neocon Council on Foreign Relations. He never served in the U.S. military but likes war  – he co-authored “5 Reasons to Intervene in Syria Now.” He is a reliable […]

Cheerleading for Israel: Everyone’s doing it

France’s greatest living poseur-hypocrite Bernard-Henri Levy, who has described the brutal Israel Defense Forces as “a democratic army, which asks itself so many moral questions” and who was a war-on-Libya cheerleader, warns that Trump is a threat to all American Jews. Why? Because even though he has showered benefits on Israel his love for the Jewish […]

Elliott Abrams and Gina Haspel – ghastly choices

The most ghastly candidate who has almost made it through the nomination screening process, in this case to become number two at the Department of State, is Elliot Abrams. Another almost as bad, Gina Haspel, succeeded and is now CIA Deputy Director….  By Philip Giraldi We live in a political environment where nothing is any longer real. […]

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 […]

The Neocon Lament: Nobody wants them in Trump’s Washington

It is a pleasure to watch the think tanks and the Israel-first, pro-war neocons begin thinking of their own political demise. It is intriguing to speculate that Trump with his populist message might just take it all one step farther and shut the door on the K Street lobbyists and other special interests, which have […]

America or Israel? Quislings in Congress and the Media need to decide which comes first

There is scant attention paid by any of the Israel boosters for actual American interests … American values and needs are invisible because they are of no interest to John Bolton and his fellow knee jerkers at AEI, the Hudson Institute, the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs […]

Tablet: “Bye-Bye, Neocons”

Tablet reports: “The Jewish conservatives and ‘nation builders’ who led us into Iraq and Afghanistan bet the farm against Donald Trump, and lost. What now?” By David P. Goldman, Tablet, Dec. 14, 2016 Israeli leaders of all major parties warn of two existential threats to Israel: a U.N. resolution forcing Israel back to the 1967 […]
