All Fire and Fury in Ukraine The still decidedly volatile situation in Ukraine is worth revisiting for a number of reasons. With the fourth anniversary of the coup just gone, the sudden passing of investigative journalist Robert Parry and Consortium News founder/editor affords even greater impetus for doing so. This is especially given his incisive body of reportage on the crisis since 2014. Australian writer/blogger Greg Maybury reports.

With Friends Like These (Who Needs Allies?) Australia, like many U.S. allies, are increasingly questioning America's bent for imposing its frequently self-serving strategic agenda on the international community. Along with probing why we might profit from re-assessing the presumed benefits of our own alliance, we'll also reveal some of the history of this complex -- and for the U.S. in the ongoing pursuit of its global goals, sure to be even more vital -- partnership.

Although numerous past examples abound, Iran especially is an instructive case study. This is especially so given that after Syria, it appears to be next on Uncle Sam's regime renovation dance card.

Of Treachery, Treason, Terror, Truth, and Liberty Forsaken (An American Tale) Along with showcasing one of the most shameful episodes in U.S. military history, Phil Nelson's new book -- Remember the Liberty: Almost Sunk by Treason on the High Seas -- presents an ideal opportunity to place into broader, more urgent relief, the history of America's increasingly contentious relationship with Israel in addition to probing the role of both nations in events unfolding in and across the Middle East.

All the News that's Fit to Fake The brouhaha over fake news, alleged interference in U.S elections is further evidence the MSM is irretrievably beholden to the amorphous Deep State. That it was ever thus has been obvious for decades to all but the most deluded aficionados of liberty, democracy, privacy, freedom, and the rule of law. With this in mind, it's time to take a deep breath for an even deeper dive into the cesspool that is the collective press-pool.

The Werewolves of Washington The death of Fidel Castro offers us an ideal opportunity to reflect not just on the profound geopolitical import of Cuban-American relations. In the process we also acquire a timely insight into how badly the Washington establishment gets it all so demonstrably and disastrously wrong. As we enter unmapped terrain in American foreign policy, Greg Maybury looks at that relationship, and what lessons might be learned.

Of Privilege, Plunder and Immoral Reward The outcome of the 2016 election will have pundits looking to explain the rise to the Oval Office of the most improbable candidate in history for some time to come. But the root cause has little to do with Donald Trump: it's Neoliberalism. Greg Maybury asks: Is this the beginning of the end of the disruptive and destructive ideology that infuses this by now utterly discredited doctrine of privilege, plunder and immoral reward?

A Clean Break from Israel (What America Needs Now) America's interminable meddling and interventions in the Middle East has wreaked havoc upon the region. Although the U.S. was the principal curator of the chaos, it seems gradually more people are recognizing it is the region's resident hegemon Israel that's been the real driver of the turmoil and violence that defines the region. Greg Maybury reports on what is arguably the most portentous geopolitical issue of our time.

Of Smoke 'n Mirrors (Lost in the Wilderness) -- Part Two For Americans inclined to reflect on such matters, it must be especially disturbing that the CIA--ostensibly established to protect and preserve their country's national security--has done more than any other entity to compromise that security, and devalue the international good-will and moral capital that America enjoyed at the end of WW2. In Part Two of this series, we again explore some of the reasons why.

The Putsch Pirates of the Potomac -- Part Two That the US inspired coup in Kiev 2014 was a reckless attempt to reignite the Cold War is clear to those who eschew the MSM for insights into the geopolitical realm. But as Greg Maybury reports in his first instalment of a 'two-parter', with 'blowback' brewing on all fronts, the US may have finally bitten off more than it's capable of chowing down on. Depending on one's view, this could be a good thing, or a bad thing!
