Al Qaeda Surges Ahead in Syria

| September 23, 2013

   Rebels Decide to Fight Each Other  While the major powers behind the proxy civil war in Syria go through the motions of working out a diplomatic solution, rebel forces have begun fighting each other, rather than the Assad regime. The al Qaeda-linked Islamist militants from Iraq and Libya have been fighting the Free Syrian […]

Would You Donate to Stop a Saudi Execution?

| April 18, 2013

No, this isn’t spam. It’s actually a novel form of crowdfunding, the latest fad in raising funds for new movies and community projects. The Philippine government is asking for “kind hearted individuals” to assist in raising the 512,066.35 Saudi Arabian Riyals (approximately $1 million US) the Saudi government is demanding as blood money to halt […]

It’s Official: Times Admits al Qaeda Role in Syria

| October 19, 2012

According to an October 14th New York Times artice: “Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster, according to American […]

Palestine’s Arab Spring

| September 21, 2012

A September 15th article (Revolution in the Air at Last) in the highly conservative Economist is predicting possible revolution in Palestine. It’s extremely good news for antiwar activists, economists, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey and all other halfway sane people seeking to thwart a threatened Israeli attack on Iran.

CNN and the Bahraini Royal Family – Part II

| September 19, 2012

(This second post relates to US media censorship of Obama’s hypocritical policy towards Bahrain’s pro-democracy movement.) For the most part, the US media has been totally silent on the Bahraini pro-democracy movement and Obama’s decision to back the repressive regime that seeks to crush them. On September 4th, Glenn Greenwald published an opinion piece in […]

Legendary Middle East reporter Robert Fisk, the first western eyewitness to enter the massacre town of Daraya, writes in the Independent about eyewitness reports that Syrian rebels, not government forces, are responsible for the mass killing of 245 Darayan men, women and children. This contrasts with the version being told in rest of the western […]

The Truth About Syria’s Civil War

| April 20, 2012

Anyone who has followed the war in Iraq is aware of the bitter religious and political rivalry between Sunni and Shia Muslims. Thus it’s pity that the mainstream corporate media fails to enlighten us about the major sectarian conflict underlying the civil war in Syria. Yes, civil war. For thirteen months, the Muslim Brotherhood, which […]

The Covert US War Against Syria

| February 14, 2012

(This is the first of two blogs about the covert US war against Syria. The case Obama is making for sanctions and “humanitarian” intervention in Syria is a total fabrication. The US goal in Syria is regime change. The people Assad is attacking aren’t unarmed protestors. They are Islamic militants that the US and NATO […]

America’s Proxy Energy Wars

| July 20, 2011

My last blog suggested that the current US wars in the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia are really proxy wars with China over oil and gas resources. I continue the discussion by outlining the crucial Chinese and US alliances in the region. China‘s Strategic Alliance with Pakistan Obama’s and Hillary Clinton’s recent threats […]
