Thousands flee, hundreds reported dead in Turkish attack on U.S.-allied Kurds in Syria, From YouTubeVideos

Turkey Beats The War Drums Trump rightly calls the fracas in Syria "a stupid war." But many pro-war forces play on this tired, confused president who has gotten himself deep into the Syrian morass, a problem of largely American but also Turkish making.

Who Launched That Mystery Attack? Attacking Iran, even if just from the air, risks a much wider Mideast war just as the Trump administration which originally campaigned against "stupid" Mideast wars faces next year's elections. But the administration is under intense pressure from its pro-Israel base to go after Iran.

It's Time to Liberate Afghanistan America faces historic defeat in Afghanistan. By not winning, it loses. How this loss would affect the rest of America's empire remains to be seen. But the sooner America ends this shameful colonial war the better.

Burn the Amazon! Cut down the trees. Kill the wild animals. Burn the bush. Pollute the rivers. Pave over the grass. Raise more beef, pigs and poultry in cages. That's the credo of the new right. Hatred of Nature is an integral part of its politics. President Donald Trump is the high priest of such environmental vandalism. In his narrow land-developer mind, Nature is a left-wing liberal conspiracy.

Hong Kong: Don't Provoke the Dragon This week, Hong Kong airport was besieged and shut down by thousands of young local demonstrators protesting China's attempt to impose a new extradition law on Hong Kong that would allow Beijing to arrest Hong Kong residents for "anti-state" activities.

The Honey Trap on East 71st Street Were Trump or Clinton involved? How much did they "party" with Epstein and revel in his fleshmart? There was talk of some sort of "intelligence" that spared him a harsh sentence. causeA respected former CIA official, Phil Giraldi has come right out and accused Epstein of being an Israeli agent of influence. Epstein was let off with a slap on the wrist on his first child abuse charge, because of his Israeli connections.

Will the Real Bombers Please Stand Up Who is attacking oil tankers in the Gulf between Oman and Iran? So far, the answer is still a mystery. The US, of course, accuses Iran. Iran says it's the US or its local allies Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

India's "Trump" Wins Big Modi has sometimes been called 'India's Trump.' He was governor of India's most business-oriented state, Gujarat. Modi is openly antagonistic to Muslims and Sikhs, and failed to halt the massacre of thousands of Muslims during his tenure. He commands wide public support for his Muslim-bashing and anti-Pakistan invective. Modi likes to wave the scimitar and vaunt his military muscle.

Fire the Nutcases Leading Us to War The Murdoch-owned media, New York Times and Washington shamelessly promoting more war in the Mideast. US media has made little progress since the yellow journalism era of William Randolph Hearst. As the great Mark Twain said, "if you don't read the daily newspapers you are uninformed. If you do read them, you are misinformed."

Sure. Let's Invade Venezuela. Another Jolly Little War. The administration's frenzied neocons want to start a war against Venezuela, a large, developed nation of 32.7 million, at the same time we are threatening war against Iran, interfering all around Africa, and confronting Russia, China and perhaps North Korea. Large parts of the Mideast and Afghanistan lie in ruins thanks to our "liberation" campaigns.

Trump's Crusaders March To War The oil embargo not only violates international law, it sets the US on a collision course with some of its most important allies and vassal states. Brazen threats against Iran by Trump's two main enforcers, National Security adviser John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have reinforced America's unfortunate image as an imperial power that threatens war against disobedient satraps and independent-minded nations.

Iraq: How We Were Lied into War When Saddam grew too big for his britches, Washington lured him into invading Kuwait, another American-British oil satrapy. A hue and cry went out from Washington and London that Iraq had secret nuclear weapons that threatened the entire globe. War, thundered US-British propaganda, was urgent and necessary.

Boeing's Doomed 737 MAX's Ethiopia refused to hand over the crashed 737's black boxes (actually they are red) to the FAA, as is normal with US-built aircraft. Instead, Addis Ababa sent the data boxes for analysis to BEA, France's well-regarded aviation accident investigator. Clearly, Ethiopia lacks confidence in the veracity and impartiality of the FAA and the White House.

More Power To You Miss Omar Presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have come to the defense of Ilhan Omar against the usual charges that she is anti-Semitic. So have black groups and smaller liberal Jewish groups. The Democratic Party, that once received half its financial support from Jewish sources, is badly split over the Palestine crisis.

A Long Way To Go For Dinner Either Trump was so anxious to get out of Washington to avoid the rising storm of scandals he faces or he thought he could flatter the North Korean leader into giving up his nuclear weapons, the only thing that prevents a US invasion of North Korea or a regime change operation.

Time to Get Out of Syria If the US deployment actually goes ahead: it will remove a major risk of war with nuclear-armed Russia, whose forces are in Syria at the invitation of the recognized government in Damascus. The US has no strategic interest in Syria and no business at all being militarily involved there. Except perhaps that the war party wants never-ending wars abroad for arms production and promotions.

Le Bull In La French China Shop Trump's evident hatred for Europe and calls by his neocon Praetorian Guard for the US to dominate the entire globe have made Europe turn away from its old subservience to Washington and talk about real independence. But the EU must have its own defense capabilities if it is to escape permanent thralldom to the United States.

The U.S. Backs The Mideast's Most Reactionary Nation The clumsy, ham-handed meddling of President Trump in Saudi dynastic affairs propelled the bull in a china shop Crown Prince into power. The machinations of Trump's son-in- law, Jared Kushner, and his Israeli allies have ignited the current crisis. Trump & Co have very much to learn about the Mideast. So far, their attempt to play colonial viceroys has been a fiasco.
