SYR9541

On June 27, 2021 the US carried out additional strikes against targets along the Syrian-Iraqi border. The attacks were condemned by both the Syrian and Iraqi governments and represent not only a dangerous escalation by American military aggression in the region, but the continuation of US aggression in the Middle East spanning two decades regardless of who…

US-Taiwan: West’s Last Foothold in China

TAI343241

In Washington’s ongoing and ever-growing confrontation with China, it continues to place pressure on Beijing over Taiwan. However, as China continues along a path soon to exceed the US economically, militarily, and technologically, Taiwan’s reintegration as part of a single China is all but inevitable. Recently introduced legislation attempting to reinforce…

The US government’s regime change funding organization – the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) – headed since its inception in 1983 by Carl Gershman – now has a new president and CEO – Damon Wilson.  The NED’s own announcement regarding the handover provides some background for Wilson, claiming…

What is Biden’s “Build Back Better World” (B3W)?

BDN342341

Announced at the archaic “Group of 7” summit (G7) in mid-June – the “Build Back Better World” (B3W) initiative is billed by Western governments and the Western corporate media as a plan that “could rival” China’s One Belt, One Road initiative (OBOR). Yet even its announcement – surely the easiest phase of the overall initiative – fell flat. Not a single actual…

US in Afghanistan: A War By Any Other Name…

AFG45211

If the promise of a US withdrawal from Afghanistan has been met by extreme skepticism by not only the American public, but by the rest of the world, the US government has only itself to blame.

3SS3523

To counter not only China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) but also Russia’s growing ties with Western Europe, an “alternative” infrastructure drive is being proposed that if and when completed, Washington, London, and Brussels hopes will further contain Russia and cut China off from European markets. Called the “Three Seas…

A Decade On: West’s War on Syria Continues

SYR461310

As Syrian elections approached, the US, France, and Germany  worked together to undermine them.  This was not because they truly believed the elections weren’t “free and fair,” but simply because there is no possibility for their client regime of choice to come to power. This is despite these same Western nations – hand-in-hand – lecturing the world about “democracy…

Geopolitical Projection: US Claims China is an “Aggressor”

BKN43124

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has, in a 60 Minutes interview, accused China of acting “repressively at home and more aggressively abroad,” emphasizing it as a “fact.” He repeated unfounded claims that “1 million” Uyghurs are being interned in facilities in China’s western region of Xinjiang and referred to it as “genocide.” He also referred to what…
