26. Februar 2024 - 6:00

Tucker Carlson began his interview of President Vladimir Putin with the words, “On February 24, 2022, you addressed your country in your nationwide address when the conflict in Ukraine started….”  Clearly the war in Ukraine was the motivation and central topic for the interview.  But precisely what Mr. Putin had to say about the Ukraine … Continue reading "Putin Explains Why Russia Doesn’t Pose a Threat to Europe"

The War on Gaza: Public Relations vs. Reality

26. Februar 2024 - 6:00

For its victims, war is . . . yes, hell. For the rest of us – the onlooking and supportive patriots – war is an abstraction embedded in ignorance, a.k.a., public relations, served up for public consumption. At least that’s the way it’s supposed to be. The reality of war should never directly confront the … Continue reading "The War on Gaza: Public Relations vs. Reality"

Post-Soviet Failures, Present-Day Realities

26. Februar 2024 - 6:00

Two years since the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine – and fully 10 years since the war actually began –  the US political-media establishment seems as far away from learning any lessons from the failure of its post-Soviet Russia policy as it has ever been. The Biden administration’s policy toward Russia is simply the logical extension of that … Continue reading "Post-Soviet Failures, Present-Day Realities"

‘Two-State Solution’ as a Distraction – The Problem Is Zionism

23. Februar 2024 - 6:00

The problem is not the absence of a Palestinian state, but Zionism itself. What is the use of a Palestinian state, if Zionism, as a racist, exclusivist ideology continues to define Israel, and impose that definition on the Palestinians? This ideology calls for racial purity of Jews in Palestine, of course, at the expense of … Continue reading "‘Two-State Solution’ as a Distraction – The Problem Is Zionism"

Selecting Syrsky: The Untold Half of the Zaluzhny Story

23. Februar 2024 - 6:00

There were probably many reasons why Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky fired Ukraine’s popular commander in chief of the armed forces, Valerii Zaluzhny, on February 8, but one of the biggest seems to have been a disagreement over how to go forward in a war that seemed to have overwhelmingly turned against them. Zelensky spoke of … Continue reading "Selecting Syrsky: The Untold Half of the Zaluzhny Story"

The Israeli State’s Assault on Gaza Must Stop

23. Februar 2024 - 6:00

Since the horrific atrocities perpetrated by Hamas against Israeli civilians on October 7, 2023, Israel has been engaged in a devastating military operation in the Gaza Strip. Over 25,000 Palestinians have been killed, 70% of whom have been women and children, and tens of thousands injured.

Refusing To Admit US Foreign Policy Blunders

22. Februar 2024 - 6:00

A recurring defect in US foreign policy is a refusal by elites to concede when they made a serious policy mistake.  This is not a new problem, but it has grown decidedly worse in the past few decades.  It characterized the intervention in Vietnam years after it should have become evident that Washington’s approach was … Continue reading "Refusing To Admit US Foreign Policy Blunders"

After Two Years of War in Ukraine, It’s Time for Peace

22. Februar 2024 - 6:00

As we mark two full years since Russia invaded Ukraine, Ukrainian government forces have withdrawn from Avdiivka, a town they first captured from the self-declared Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in July 2014. Situated only 10 miles from Donetsk city, Avdiivka gave Ukrainian government forces a base from which their artillery bombarded Donetsk for nearly ten … Continue reading "After Two Years of War in Ukraine, It’s Time for Peace"

Don’t Spare the Billions

21. Februar 2024 - 6:00

Reprinted from EricMargolis.com. When I was a boy growing up in New York City I was taught – and re-taught – to always save half of my weekly allowance and never spend more than I had in savings. Too bad Joe Biden was not taught this useful Presbyterian virtue. Recently, Biden’s government has sought $106 … Continue reading "Don’t Spare the Billions"

Biden Knows Putin Killed Alexei Navalny

21. Februar 2024 - 6:00

The President of the United States only knows what his intelligence community tells him. After the January attack on a U.S. military facility in Jordan, American intelligence assessed that Iran does not fully control its proxy groups and that it is not commanding the attacks. The Pentagon, though, said “we know Iran is behind it,” … Continue reading "Biden Knows Putin Killed Alexei Navalny"

Israel Is Assaulting Hospitals in Gaza with Full US. Support

21. Februar 2024 - 6:00

Many decades ago in Chicago, my favorite of several part-time student jobs was operating the “old-style” telephone switchboard at a small hospital called Forkosh Memorial. The console of coils and plugs included a mirror so operators could keep an eye on the hospital entrance, which on weekends and evenings was also monitored by an elderly, … Continue reading "Israel Is Assaulting Hospitals in Gaza with Full US.

Washington, Pro-Democracy? Depends on the Country

19. Februar 2024 - 6:00

Pakistan just held an election; Venezuela is about to. Both incumbent governments have banned the leading opposition figure from competing. The United States sanctioned one and was silent on the other. What was the difference? Not international law or responsible leadership, both of which require a consistent application of laws and a consistent response. The … Continue reading "Washington, Pro-Democracy?

How the CIA Destabilizes the World

19. Februar 2024 - 6:00

Reprinted from CommonDreams. There are three basic problems with the CIA: its objectives, methods, and unaccountability. Its operational objectives are whatever the CIA or the President of the United States defines to be in the U.S. interest at a given time, irrespective of international law or U.S. law. Its methods are secretive and duplicitous. Its … Continue reading "How the CIA Destabilizes the World"

Reprinted from Consortium News. As U.S. House members grapple with whether to give $60 billion more to Ukraine, they must also grapple with the checkered nature of the intelligence they’ve been fed. On July 13, 2023, President Joe Biden announced Russian President Vladimir Putin “has already lost the war.” That was six days after C.I.A. … Continue reading "Throwing Good Money After Bad in Ukraine?"

The Unrepentant West: Olaf Scholz and the Right to Commit Genocide in Gaza

16. Februar 2024 - 6:00

On February 8, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz was in Washington on an official visit, aimed at working jointly with the United States to make “sure that Israel has what it needs to defend itself”. If such a statement was made soon after the Al-Aqsa Flood Operation of October 7, one may cognize its logic, based … Continue reading "The Unrepentant West: Olaf Scholz and the Right to Commit Genocide in Gaza"

Bombing Muslims for Peace

16. Februar 2024 - 6:00

Originally posted at TomDispatch. War, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing. So that classic late 1960s song claimed. Still, for Bill Astore and me (and, I have little doubt, Joe Biden, too), such a thought didn’t cross our minds as we played with toy soldiers on the floors of our rooms as kids.

Joe Biden and Mismanagement of the Wars

15. Februar 2024 - 6:00

The Biden administration has seemingly adopted a foreign policy doctrine in which they nurture a war while attempting to manage it, preventing it from becoming a wider war. The doctrine has been applied in both Ukraine and Gaza. In Ukraine, war has been nurtured by snuffing out the possibility of a diplomatic settlement while feeding … Continue reading "Joe Biden and Mismanagement of the Wars"
