Bolton Is Spinning Israeli "Intelligence" to Push for War Against Iran John Bolton has gotten away with a dangerous deception. The national security adviser's announcement Sunday that the Pentagon has deployed air and naval forces to the Middle East, which he combined with a threat to Iran, points to a new maneuver to prepare the ground for an incident that could justify a retaliatory attack against Iran.

Mueller Stoked Trump-Russia Alarmism, Despite Finding No Collusion The Mueller report doesn't show the Trump campaign collusion the public had been led by media coverage to expect. But it is a siren song for a continued focus on the supposed threat to U.S. democracy from Russian "meddling". It is aimed at maintaining public support for a focus on the threat from Russia, which diverts the attention of the media and Congress from real threats to democracy from Trump's domestic agenda.

The Right May Finally Get Its War on Iran John Bolton has never made a secret of his burning desire to stoke a war between the United States and Iran. But Bolton is not the only one on Donald Trump's national security team who dreams of such a military confrontation. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has joined with Bolton in recent months to prepare a case for possible war with Iran.

The Real Motive Behind the FBI Plan to Investigate Trump as a Russian Agent - Consortiumnews Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and senior FBI officials "viewed Trump as a leader who needed to be reined in, according to two sources describing the sentiment of the time." That description by anti-Trump law enforcement officials suggests that the proposed counter-intelligence investigation of Trump served as a means to maintain some leverage over his treatment of the FBI in regard to the Russia issue.

Is the End of the Brutal War in Yemen Finally at Hand? The war's swift conclusion appears all but inevitable. While Crown Prince Mohammed may be committed to final victory, the Saudi regime remains heavily dependent on U.S. political-diplomatic cover, as it has since the beginning of the bombing campaign in Yemen. Ironically, that political reality could now tip the balance toward peace.

U.K. and Ecuador Conspire to Deliver Julian Assange to U.S. Authorities Behind the revelation of those secret charges for supposedly threatening U.S. national security is a murky story of a political ploy by the Ecuadorian and British governments to create a phony rationale for ousting Assange from the embassy. The two regimes agreed to base their plan on the claim that Assange was conspiring to flee to Russia.

America's Permanent-War Complex In the new permanent-war complex the interests of the arms contractors have increasingly dominated over the interests of the civilian Pentagon and the military services and dominance has became a new driving force for continued war.

Could Trump Take Down the American Empire? More than any other presidency in modern history, Donald Trump's has been a veritable sociopolitical wrecking ball, deliberately stoking conflict by playing to xenophobic and racist currents in American society and debasing its political discourse. That fact has been widely discussed. But Trump's attacks on the system of the global U.S. military presence and commitments have gotten far less notice.

How the Department of Homeland Security Created a Deceptive Tale of Russia Hacking US Voter Sites The narrative about Russian cyberattacks on American election infrastructure is a self-interested abuse of power by DHS based on distortion of evidence, writes Gareth Porter.

The Media's Brazen Dishonesty About North Korean Nuclear Violations A media complex so determined to discredit negotiations with North Korea and so unfettered by political-diplomatic reality seriously threatens the ability of the United States to deliver on any agreement with Pyongyang. That means alternative media must make more aggressive efforts to challenge the corporate press's coverage.

Bolton Trying to Convince Trump to Topple Iran John Bolton may have backed off wanting to bomb Iran, saying he's not the one to decide, but he's hardly given up trying to convince Trump to replace the regime in Tehran, as Gareth Porter explains.

How Corporate Media Are Undermining a US-North Korea Nuclear Weapons Deal A central question in the coming weeks will be whether the corporate media will succeed once again in creating a political climate that forces the Trump administration to abandon the only kind of deal that can create an off-ramp from nuclear confrontation.

Did John Bolton Leak Intelligence to Sabotage a Trump-Kim Deal? Donald Trump-Kim Jong Un summit offers opportunity for a denuclearization deal that would avoid a possible nuclear war, but that remains vulnerable to a hostile corporate media sector and political elites in the United States. At the center of this hostility is national security adviser John Bolton, who's not just uninterested in selling a denuclearization deal to the public. He's working actively to undermine it.

What Ken Burns Left Out of the Vietnam Story Indiscriminate targeting of civilian areas and "collective punishment" of the civilian population for support for or assistance to combatants are clear violations of the laws of war. But Ward doesn't even focus on the use of U.S. air power in South Vietnam apart from close air support in ground battles, much less acknowledge that the U.S. military bears responsibility for war crimes.

South Korean Report on Summit Discredits U.S. Elites' Assumption The pattern of U.S. policy is one side of the still-unknown story of the politics of the North Korean issue. The other side of the story is North Korea's effort to use its nuclear and missile assets as bargaining chips get the United States to strike a deal that would change the U.S. stance of enmity toward North Korea.

Israel Plans a New War in Syria -- but Not for the Reasons It Claims The war that Israel is planning in Syria is at least in part a response to its inability to use force against Hezbollah in Lebanon. And it is not going to alter the fundamental power equation either in Syria or between Israel and Hezbollah.

How "Operation Merlin" Poisoned U.S. Intelligence on Iran Operation Merlin is the perfect example of powerful bureaucratic interests running amok and creating the intelligence necessary to justify their operations. The net result is that Jeffrey Sterling was unjustly imprisoned and that the United States has gone down a path of Iran policy that poses serious -- and unnecessary -- threats to American security.
