The United States is not honest in normalizing relations with the revolutionary government of Cuba, but it is almost certainly laying the groundwork for a “color revolution” in the Latin American nation.
The US is not the good guys. They never have been and they never will be. And to think that is somehow going to end well for Cuba is a mistake I think.
All of this bloviating about how dangerous Trump is - Trump is very dangerous, but he is not going to be a President of the US. ...I see this emphasis on Trump as an attempt to divert attention from someone [who is] the most dangerous in the world, who will be the President of the US, and that, potentially is Hillary Clinton.
This announcement by Victoria Nuland that Russia’s partial pullout or initial pullout from Syria won’t have any bearing on the sanctions that the US has imposed on Moscow is just typical of the arrogance
and intransigence of the US government, which is the world’s worst imperial strongman, the greatest rogue state, the
greatest terrorist state and the greatest threat to humankind that the world has ever known.
The United States, along with its regional allies, has been in league with ISIL in unleashing death squads to topple the government of Syrian President Bashar
al-Assad. The US has a long history of staging false-flag attacks in an effort to spread hostilities and pursue a regime change agenda in various parts of the world.
There has been plenty of evidence that ISIL backers provided the terror group with chlorine gas and other chemical weapons to launch attacks inside
...until we have more of a balance where the countries of the global south, in alliance with China and Russia, push back against this basically imperialist project, you won't have any sovereignty or independence for any of the peoples or the countries that are included, because the deck is stacked, and the game is
Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has got so much blood on her hands that she should be in The Hague, not the Oval Office.
Mar 1: the US election circus, Super Tuesday edition
[the US electoral system] is an incredibly stacked system. Not only is the
super- delegate thing anti-democratic and oligarchic in principle, but today's primary slate was made as a bulwark against having any left-leaning
Host Eric Draitser and Dan go back and forth on racism, white supremacy and the necolonial attitudes bubbling to the surface in light of the refugee crisis. With references ranging from "Blazing Saddles" to "Seinfeld," they manage to have a little fun while exploring an issue that is of the utmost importance to contemporary politics and activism.
US Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent comments on Syria show that despite changes in rhetoric, regime change has always remained America’s only objective in
Syria. ...“The [US] political system is an absolute
mess. And what you have is this kind of a neocon establishment that is pushing these wars and constantly promoting this regime change agenda to keep American power in force around the
Feb 24: Kerry's 'Plan B' threat on Syria -plan has always been regime change
[I see Kerry's] announcement as a threat... an
unadulterated threat. That's Plan A. The Plan B implied in
that is the division and destruction of the Syrian state.
"the whole reason that I am interested in geopolitics and in the struggle in general, and many people like me in pushing back against imperialism, is that we see the overlap: it’s a seamless connection between our black and brown children being shot by police at home to the massive incarceration to the demonization of immigrants here as well as in Europe.”
The US and its allies are going to implement their “Plan B” in Syria by deploying ground troops in the war-torn country after their attempts to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad have failed.
Feb 13: US can and will drop support for Turkey whenever it wants
Washington is so full of lies on this [pressing Turkey to halt strikes - saying it does not consider the Syrian Kurds as terrorists] that you can't quite tell whether they are secretly egging on the Turks -- which they've done in the past--or recognize this for what it is, which is a dangerous kind of off-the-reservation long-wolf attack that is likely to bring severe consequences.
Americans ...are very angry. Hillary Clinton is seen as part of the establishment. And anything that challenges that is actually something that Americans want to hear. During tonight’s debates
... Hillary Clinton mouthing platitudes and trained lines and coaxed, couched speechwriters like puppet strings. That doesn’t fly. People don’t want to hear that right now, in the post-recession America.
The whole system is rigged like a charade. The traditional establishment does not want an insurgent candidate; they want something they can
control. If Sanders is the nominee ... Empire can live with that... He is the gatekeeper – kind of a sheep dog – but it will
... stave off a systematic collapse and massive unrest which is on the horizon if the anger of people earning say less than $100,000 a year is not addressed
US ignores how many people it kills abroad. Domestic reports of crime and gun violence in the US are “self-involved” as they usually ignore the fact that America is the biggest provider of guns worldwide and has killed millions outside its own borders.
Jan 26: US Treasury's hypocritical 'corruption' allegations at Putin
I don't think they have any special insight into a financial analysis that proves or disproves a theory like this. .. I suppose it could all be true...i don't think it's likely ...If it were all true I would still be asking all these same questions: who's saying it, and why are they saying it, and why are they saying it now?
Jan 20: US Empire
will pick ‘socialist’ Sanders to sell its wars
Independent Senator Bernie Sanders will win the 2016
US presidential election since the Empire needs “a
kinder, gentler way to sell its wars. I think I am going
to go on record here and predict that Bernie Sanders is
going to be the next president of the United States.
20 minute interview with Sputnik Radio; Danny comes on just
over 1 min in, after the introduction.
Host Brian Becker and Danny track the development of the
Syrian conflict, including the role that Russia's airstrikes have played in shifting the balance of power, the western response to this intervention, and the role of Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
The latest US Republican presidential debate resembled a “freak show” that exposes the country’s profoundly racist and morally bankrupt culture. The GOP debate is a “revelation of a deeply racist and fundamentally, morally and spiritually bankrupt culture and increasingly an economic bankrupt
One thing that strikes me to hear Hillary
Clinton say negative things about Trump is
that she has one hell of a nerve to take
someone to task for inflammatory rhetoric.
Hillary Clinton’s condemnation of Donald Trump over his controversial remarks is
hypocritical since she presided over
genocide of the people of Libya in 2011.
