Escalating Violent Militarism for Oppression-Ferguson & Gaza

This is the definition of a war of terror. It requires the aggressor to engage in constant and ever escalating displays of disciplined force – which is what militaries do. Glen Ford

You Don’t Believe We’re On the Eve of Destruction?

US, Europe, Israel, Saudi Arabia have worked so hard together to bring us to the brink of WWIII.

Ukraine is where the US helped stage a coup that left violent neo-Nazis running a puppet government.

Obama and his administration were FURIOUS over losing their power grab for Black Sea control. They and the Kiev government are willing to have Russian Ukrainians in the east massively slaughtered and to create a humanitarian crisis for the survivors as collective punishment, ethnic cleansing and to provoke a military reaction from Russia.

A nuclear-armed Russia. Read below the fold...

Collective Punishment & Butchering Babies is Self-Defense?

Israeli “self defense” is NOT what is going on, even though there is relentless 24/7 US mainstream media propaganda to camouflage the ruthless unleashing of the Israeli/US-paid-for mass killing war machine.

In "Eyeless in Gaza" Jonathan Cook calls out Netanyahu’s protests of waging a “necessary” war of self-defense against rockets and tunnels. He writes: Read below the fold...

Evil No Longer ‘Lesser’, Even from Ostrich Stance

It’s hard to fight for human and social justice when one recognizes that the communication of horrifying truths has little chance of penetrating -- SERIOUSLY -- the hearts and minds of so many, many of those still dedicated to crony “truthiness” and the status quo -- hearts and minds of so many low-information and dead-conscienced but stubbornly self-labeled “progressives” of America.

Israeli/Palestinian TIMELINE of Past Fateful Month

Hayes Brown in “Timeline: The Month That Brought Gaza Back To The Breaking Point” attempts to give a progressive summary of the conflict between the Israeli government and the Palestinians since June 12th.

One year ago, Hayes Brown points out, John Kerry pushed the Israeli government and Palestinian leaderships to try to achieve a two-state solution, stressing that the window of opportunity was fast closing. Read below the fold...

Israel’s ‘Defensive Military Op’ Really Ethnic Cleansing

Bill Van Auken in “Air strikes kill civilians as Israel prepares new Gaza bloodbath” calls out Jen Psaki, US State Department spokesperson who, after declaring that the Zionist regime of Israel had a “right to defend itself”, was asked by a reporter whether Gazan Palestinians had a right to defend themselves. Her response? “I don’t understand what you’re getting at.”

Duh. Read below the fold...

As Thousands Mourn Netanyahu Escalates Ethnic Cleansing

Was there ethnic hatred at the bottom of the deaths of three innocent Israeli teens recently? A good chance of that.

Is that an excuse for ethnic hatred or politically and militarily empowered acts of mass murder or incarceration, the unleashing of even more of a vendetta program to perpetrate “ethnic cleansing” against an entire Palestinian population? Also a most convenient excuse at the same time to destroy the recent efforts for empowerment and social justice for Palestinians under a hyper-oppressive occupying Israeli governance?

Obama Wants Turkey/Israel to Help Bomb Shit Outta Syria

Some people still don’t get that Obama is a pragmatist with a heart of stone. Both domestically and internationally speaking.

Internationally speaking, according to Melkulangara Bhadrakumar, Obama got what he wanted from the trip to Israel when at the very end of it he played catalyst to Turkey's and Israel's “making up” after the killing of nine Turkish nationals by Israeli commandos in the 2010 Turkish flotilla on a humanitarian mission to help the Palestinians of Gaza.

Netanhayu Courts Right w/ Slaughter of Nowhere-to-Run Gazans

Mohammed Omer, Palestinian journalist based in Gaza who in 2008 won the Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism, writes:

“Air strikes are bombing everything that moves. Everything that moves in the streets is being bombed and attacked. ... One thing that we ought to talk about here is the humanitarian situation in the Gaza strip. This is a situation of targeting a population of civilians, exactly like Israel is shooting in a fishbowl. And there is no shelter, and there is nowhere to run for the general population. Gaza is living in a very dire situation.”

US Citizens Goose-Step to Voting Booth & War with Iran

A vote for either Obama or Romney will be an endorsement for a war with Iran.

Both evil Romney and supposedly lesser evil Obama are committed to more war in general and committed to obliging Israel’s strident insistence for a war with Iran.

All American citizens should think of this as they cast their ballots. Think of their own participation -- their enabling -- the greatest crime against humanity -- WAR. Read below the fold...

Netanyahu Entraps Election-Bound Obama re War with Iran

According to Philip Giraldi, at the end of July Defense Secretary Leon Panetta traveled to Israel to get a commitment from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not to attack Iran BEFORE AMERICA’S ELECTIONS. He did not get it.

Some intelligence analysts in Washington believe Netanyahu will attack Iran in October. The weather will be suitable and Obama will be “squeezed” due to the election and his need for Jewish support to support the Israelis in their attack.

Giraldi believes an equal number of analysts believe he is bluffing.

Creepy 50/50 odds. Read below the fold...

Netanyahu's gamble

Consortium News

President Obama sent Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu home with a warning that Israel cannot count on U.S. support if it unilaterally bombs Iran. Top neocons are fuming and Netanyahu must weigh the risk of defying Obama on Iran and trying to deny him reelection, writes Robert Parry.

Let us suppose that Netanyahu decides to strike unilaterally. First of all, it is not impossible that Iran could shoot down at least some of Israels planes. That would create problems for Netanyahu at home. Read below the fold...
