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."

U.S. intelligence officials suggest that the person who fired the missile that downed Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 may have been "a defector" from the Ukrainian army, an apparent attempt to explain why some CIA analysts thought satellite images revealed men in Ukrainian army uniforms manning the missile battery, writes Robert Parry. As the U.S. gove […]
Editor's note: The alleged victim in this case did not participate in this report. Because naming her parents would identify her, her first name and her family name are pseudonyms.

The U.S. media's Ukraine bias has been obvious, siding with the Kiev regime and bashing ethnic Russian rebels and Russia's President Putin. But now - with the scramble to blame Putin for the Malaysia Airlines shoot-down - the shoddy journalism has grown truly dangerous, says Robert Parry. In the heat of the U.S. media's latest war hysteria - r […]

America today is the main sponsor of the Israeli regime and all its decades-old crimes against humanity. These crimes are once again on display in the most despicable and barbaric way.

French Air Force units in Mali and Algerian Air Force have launched a joint operation to search for an Air Algerie passenger plane that disappeared early Thursday while flying over northern Mali, a security source told Xinhua.
The MH17 tragedy may have been a horrendous mistake, but it may also have been a desperate gambit by the Kiev minions of the Empire of Chaos. Washington has been quick off the blocks to ignite and in theory win the spin war to persuade the world that Russia's hand was wittingly or otherwise behind the downing of the civilian aircraft. Moscow, more ratio […]
No credible version of events points to the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine as intentional mass murder or terrorism, and with international experts now getting access to the black box, there seems to be little the Atlanticist Brigade can use to point the finger at Moscow. Still, expect sanctions on Russia to follow, and for the reverber […]
Western coverage of contemporary events from Palestine to Ukraine reveals that Orwell's 1984 is only too real in today's world. Yet as Leni Riefenstahl knew only too well, the "messages" the media carry of government atrocities depend not on "orders from above" but on a "submissive void" in the population as a whole, n […]
Hardline Iranian factions are maintaining pressure on the government over potential concessions in any nuclear deal reached with world powers, following an amicable extension arrangement reached last week.

Strikingly devoid of comprehension of the forces at play in Iraq and the region, post-invasion US policy in Iraq followed a simplistic dichotomy of "good guys" versus "bad guys". Distressingly aware of what was happening to their country, Iraqis have long dreaded that the destabilization and sectarian disintegration would lead to the mass […]

لا يفسح الصراع الحالي في غزة مجالا لسباق التصريحات المنافقة، مخفيا أصوله (نسب اختطاف ثلاثة من المراهقين الاسرائيليين الى حماس دون دليل)، فحسب، بل ولتورط عسكري سري ايضا من أعضاء الناتو. ففي حين تقول واشنطن ان "لإسرائيل الحق في الدفاع عن نفسها من هجمات يشنها تنظيم إرهابي في غزة"، مؤكدةً مع ذلك العمل مع الفلسطينيين كما مع الإسرائيليين على تهدئة القتال […]

عام 1948, كانت فرضية الدفاع الاسرائيلية تقوم على خلق منطقة آمنة حول اسرائيل. وهي ليست سوى تطبيق لاستراتيجية "خطوات" الأوروبية : الحروب الاسرائيلية محاولة لتوسيع أراضيها, وإذا تعذر ذلك, نزع سلاح المناطق الواقعة على حدودها. لكن مع ظهور وانتشار الصواريخ, تم تجميد "خطوات" لأنها لم تعد تقدم ضمانات مهمة. ذلك أن اسرائيل ترددت عام 1999 بإعادة الج […]
