“Only after the last tree has been cut down, Only after the last river has been poisoned, Only after the last fish has been caught, Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten”. Cree Indian Prophecy
The 1776 Declaration of Independence stated that when a long train of abuses by those in power evidence a design to reduce the rights of people to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, it is the peoples right, in fact their duty to engage in a revolution.
and ….. JFK in his own words !
In a speech to the Newspaper Publishers Association in 1961, President Kennedy said:
“No president should fear public scrutiny of his program, for from that scrutiny comes understanding, and from that understanding comes support or opposition; and both are necessary. . . . Without debate, without criticism, no administration and no country can succeed, and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian law makers once decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment.”
Abraham Lincoln said, just before his assassination:
I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country...Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money-power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed."

When most of us think of a State of Emergency, we think of isolated natural disasters like hurricanes, winter storms or a flood that passes through. In those cases it's quite obvious when the emergency is over. But what if an emergency is declared for something that hasn't happened yet? How will we know when it's over? Both Pennsylvania and Co […]

A fraction of the trillions of dollars spent in the past decade on military activities in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere could achieve far more for human security if properly directed to areas such as public health and education.

You know the joke? You describe something obviously heading for disaster - a friend crossing Death Valley with next to no gas in his car - and then add, "What could possibly go wrong?" Such is the Middle East today, with the US again at war there. Here, then, are seven worst-case scenarios in a part of the world where the worst case has regularly b […]
The overwhelming vote in Britain's parliament in favor of a Palestinian state underlines how the British public and political establishment have grown disenchanted with Israel's occupation. However, London still pursues an openly pro-Israel foreign policy - and arms the country's soldiers - so there's no real threat of the Balfour vision […]
Everyday life matters in forming a more complete picture of North Korea. In as much as anything can be learned about the trials and tribulations of ordinary people, observations "on the ground" count. One way, although not perfect, to gather them is to travel to the Hermit Kingdom as a tourist. - Emma Campbell (Oct 21, '14)

Thierry Meyssan jako první poukázal na nemožnost oficiální verze útoků z 11. září a došel k závěru, že povaha a politika režimu USA se změnila. Zatímco většinu jeho čtenářů tento den stále vzrušuje, on sám šel vlastní cestou a nyní se soustředí na boj s imperialismem v Libanonu, Lybii a teď v Sýrii. Přinášíme jeho pohled na tento šílený den.

Anglo-americká agrese proti Rusku nabírá formu finanční a ekonomické války. Ale Moskva se připravuje na nepřátelské ozbrojené akce tím, že rozvíjí svoji zemědělskou soběstačnost a rozšiřuje své aliance. Podle Therry Meyssana, po vytvoření kalifátu v Levantu Washington v září v Sankt Petersburgu položil na stůl novou kartu. Budoucí kurs událostí bude určen sc […]
Zatímco západní veřejné mínění je krmeno informacemi o vytvoření údajné mezinárodní koalice pro boj proti „Islámskému emirátu“, ten mění diskrétně tvar. Jeho hlavními důstojníky již nejsou Arabové, ale Gruzínci a Číňané. Pro Thierry Meyssana tato mutace ukazuje na to, že NATO má v konečném úmyslu použít „Islámský emirát“ v Rusku a Číně. Proto musí nyní obě z […]
Každý má názor jak vysvětlit masakry spáchané státem Izrael v Gaze. Zatímco v 70. a 80. letech to byla demonstrace anglo-saského imperialismu, dnes to mnozí interpretují jako konflikt mezi židy a Araby. Při hodnocení dlouhého historického období – čtyř století – Thierry Meyssan, konzultant několika vlád, analyzuje původ sionismu, jeho skutečné ambice, a urču […]
Po třech letech války proti Sýrii "Západ" účelně rozšířil svou ofenzívu nejdříve na Irák, posléze i na Palestinu. Vzhledem ke zdánlivým rozporům mezi politickými stranami náboženskými a sekulárními lze tuto strategii vysvětlit jedině silnými hospodářskými zájmy. Mnoho skupin na Blízkém východě pravidelně měnilo tábory, ale naleziště zemního plynu j […]

Evropské vlády nanejvýš pokrytecky tvrdí, že mandát daný Evropské komisi k vyjednávání Transatlantického obchodního a investičního partnerství s Washingtonem spadá pod evropské právo.

Během pár týdnů se vytvořily dvě koalice, kterým málokdo předvídal budoucnost : Kurdistán a sunitský chalifát. Meyssanova analýza, podle které obě dvě jednají pod impulsem z Washingtonu, zdá se vítězit. Naopak, šíjitský chalifát podle dohody Rotschilda s Chomejnym, tehdy uprchlíkem v Paříži, který předvídal ruský generál Filatov, zřejmě ustupuje. […]
Organizace Mujahidin-e-Khalq (MEK – ozbrojená íránská opoziční skupina financovaná Washingtonem) uspořádala 27. června ve Vilepinte u Paříže velký mítink. Událost navštívilo přes 80 tisíc lidí. Zatímco hlavním cílem bylo podpořit vojenskou základnu organizace v Iráku Camp Asharaf a její boj proti Íránu, prezidentka MEK příležitost využila k tvrdému odsouzení […]
Amid all the hysteria surrounding the rise of the Islamic State in the Levant (ISIS), even the most frantic have usually refrained from calling for "boots on the ground," i.e. the re-invasion of Iraq.

These days, two “wars” are in the headlines: one against the marauding Islamic State and its new caliphate of terror carved out of parts of Iraq and Syria, the other against a marauding disease and potential pandemic, Ebola, spreading across West Africa, with the first cases already reaching the United States […]
It would be intellectually dishonest to reflect on the British House of Commons’ vote of October 13, on a Palestinian state without digging deeper into history. Regardless of the meaning of the non-binding motion, the parliamentary action cannot be brushed off as just another would-be country to recognize Palestine, as was the Swedish government’s decision [ […]
If the British parliament had adopted a resolution in favor of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, the reaction of our media would have been like this: "In an atmosphere of great enthusiasm, the British parliament adopted with a huge majority (274 for, a mere 12 against) a pro-Israeli motion…Over half the seats were […]
The questionable continuance of the NATO alliance after the Cold War ended is demonstrated by Turkey’s reluctance to help against the rampaging group Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Israel’s seven weeks of attacks this summer on heavily populated civilian neighborhoods in Gaza has led to unprecedented concern among Americans who, while still broadly supportive of Israel, found the attacks to be disproportionate and unnecessary.
