An Ominous Foreboding, Israel vs Iran According to Ronen Bergman an analyst for the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, writing yesterday in the NY Times magazine, says Israel will attack Iran in 2012. Former head of Israel's Mossad intelligence service Meir Dagan says the Iranian threat is not imminent and a military strike catastrophic for Israel. If Bergman's analysis is correct the Israeli leadership will decide to strike Iran anyway.

Egypt is calling for Mubarak to step down. Yesterday in Yemen 1000's marched calling for Pres. Saleh to step down. The rebellions have been spontaneous swellings of ordinary people wanting to overthrow tyrants.

A Nuclear War Would Be Insane Let’s get to the point; a nuclear war would be insane. Nuclear weapons today are infinitely more powerful than the bombs dropped on Japan in 1945. Both the U.S & Russia possess MIRV’d missiles carrying multiple warheads & no ABM’s are capable of intercepting them. The cold wars mutually assured destruction-MAD- still applies. It would be the hgt. of insanity for a nuclear war to break out over the Ukraine crisis.

The Rich Get Richer, the Poor Get Poorer, While the Middle Class Gets Decimated The rich get richer; the poor get poorer, the theme that best describes this great recession. Now the middle classes are being decimated expanding the ranks of the poor. Where are the giant gov't projects of roads, bridges, schools, railroads? Is it just nostalgia for FDR and the WPA's and CCC's of his time? There should have been a middle class rebellion demanding the enactment of programs to get people back to work.

CIA in the Crosshairs Forget the Brian Williams saga that's gone viral. It's just a distraction because the much larger issue is this: distortion, misinformation & lies are reported daily by the entire MSM in the US & Europe. That's the real story. It has been revealed by Dr. Udo Ulfkotte, the former editor of a leading German newspaper who wrote a book, "Bought Journalists" which he says "characterizes the CIA control of the western media".

Iran Offers 9 Point Plan to end Nuclear Crisis, U.S. "No thanks". Iran has proposed a 9 step plan to end the crisis over its nuclear development. It requires an immediate cessation of all sanctions. From Sec'y of State Clinton, "The U.S. has no intentions of relaxing sanctions". So much for the latest offer from Iran. It has been portrayed as an existential threat, yet it is the U.S. that refuses to engage Iran diplomatically w/out preconditions & not wanting a normalization of relations.

The Danger of an Israeli Attack on Iran Since the 1967 war Israel has become the preeminent power in the Middle East. It is unchallenged yet its recent actions reveal a siege mentality despite its military superiority. Feeding this siege mentality most prominently is Iran and its nuclear ambitions. The worry is Israel will act unilaterally and bomb Iranian nuclear facilities with disastrous consequences. Only Barack Obama can avert this disaster from happening.

Premeditated domestic crisis instigated by the CIA We may be heading for a presidential crisis of major proportions if Monday's electoral college vote is not finalized that day. Some 56 electors-all Dems except one-have requested a briefing on allegations Russia interfered w/ the election. One thing seems clear, the CIA precipitated a pre-meditated crisis w/ allegations of Russian meddling in the election; no proof given. We'll see if that crisis becomes a CIA domestic coup.

Something may be amiss immediately blaming Syrian government for Sarin gas attack As we know a sarin gas attack occurred in Khan Shaykhun, Syria on Monday killing some 58 people. Western leaders including Pres. Trump immediately blamed Syrian Pres. Assad. However the area around Khan Shaykhun is held by al Qaeda militants. The UN Mission Report of the sarin attack in 2013 confirmed "opposition" rebels used chemical weapons. Could this be another false chemical attack allegation against the Syrian gov't?

Political Campaign Theatre Masquerading as Real Difference President Obama is in full campaign mode. His latest plan is $5 to 10 billion to go to some homeowners but can't refinance because their homes are worth less than what they owe. It sounds good, but it's political theatre. The Repubs. won't back it so it has no chance of being enacted. The bottom line is if Obama really cared about homeowners in distress he'd have pushed for helping ALL early in his presidency. He didn't.

Korea would preemptively launch a nuclear strike aimed @ the U.S. knowing his country would be incinerated in retaliation makes the idea absurd. It won't happen.

What's coming from the Trump crowd regarding North Korea is simply madness War w/ N. Korea could be imminent. From reports the US conducted joint training exercises w/ S. Korean forces to practice removing nuclear weapons from N. Korea. From Trumps Nat'l Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, referring to N. Korea, "We're out of time w/this problem". "The US is ready to compel the denuclearization of N. Korea" & "w/out the cooperation of that regime". What's coming from the Trump crowd is simply madness.

"Justice" for Bradley Manning? Bradley Manning is to go on trial for "aiding the enemy" allegedly for supplying WikiLeaks documents the web site subsequently leaked. Under the law it must be shown the defendant had the intent of harming the U.S. The defense will show Manning had no such intent. If there is to be justice for Bradley Manning it is clear he never had intent to harm the U.S. Manning's conviction would be a supreme injustice.

"Let's be very clear where the onus lies". "Let's be very clear where the onus lies." That's from the State Dep'ts Mark Toner accusing Hamas of instigating Israels air assault on Gaza that is ongoing. As usual in all matters relating to the Palestinians & Israel, the U.S. always places the onus on the Palestinians who provoke Israel. But it is Israel that continues its oppression over the besieged & occupied Palestinians w/ U.S. support. That's where the true onus lies

The "Tyranny of 9/11" and the challenge to "The "official" Story" Tom'w marks the 15th anniversary of 9/11. Many terrible consequences have been brought about since that fateful day. John W.

Absolute Insanity It's absolute insanity for the US to provoke war with Russia. Yet this morning the US House passed a resolution, H.Res 758 which former congressman Dennis Kucinich describes as a "Green Light" to war w/ Russia. The rational mind wouldn't contemplate a potential nuclear war w/ Russia. But apparently to the irrational mind threatening & provoking a nuclear armed Russia is on the table; never mind that it's absolute insanity.

The Rebellion We Need in America One can identify w/ the people in Tunisia and Egypt who have thrown off their shackles and successfully rebelled against and removed their dictators. Rebellion has a way of renewing the spirit. We in America are in need of our own rebellion and renewal of our spirit. The rebellion begun in Wisconsin needs to broaden nationally for us to regain our dignity against the powerful forces that dictate in America.

Then there was the great recession of 2008 created by the malevolence of the financial industry. Rebellion was justified; it didn't happen.

"Innocence is complicity" "Innocence is complicity" a quote from a old Chris Hedges column writing about Americans. We're a nation of many who see themselves as innocent, never mind complicit. That would require reflection. After the Snowden revelations came out revealing the NSA's electronic surveillance of Americans it didn't matter if it was illegal & un-Constitutional. To many Americans it was, "I haven't done anything wrong so why should I worry."

The Indelible American Stain in Iraq Revealed by "Wikileaks" Iraq has been pretty much out of the news in recent months. However the latest Wikileaks disclosure of 300.000 classified documents relating to the extent of so many indiscriminate killings committed by private contractors done w/ impunity and no fear of accountability is quite revealing. These latest revelations have the Pentagon blasting the whistle blower but their every utterance just makes them look more perverse.

The visceral hatred of Trump, it's become surreal We know Trump. He's a self important narcissist & reactionary tweeting blowhard. His policies, sanctions, trade wars are counter-productive & hurt the American people. Much of it knee jerk reactions rather well thought out decisions. But the visceral hatred of Trump is total among liberals & Dems. Even when he's the statesman meeting N.Korea's Kim Jong-Un or meeting w/Russia's Pres. Putin he's denigrated. It's become surreal.

Cannon fodder to the "deep state" To the deep state in America winning conflicts-most of which it initiated-isn't necessary. It doesn't care about winning & losing, the expansion of terrorism, hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing their war torn countries or even US military killed in futile battles. They are but cannon fodder to the sociopaths that put them in harm's way. Are we too not cannon fodder to that deep state, propagandized to support our wars?

A not so Veiled Threat to Iran Ah the chutzpah of the Repubs believing they have a mandate after last yrs. elections giving them control of both houses of Congress. The latest ploy is 47 Senate Repubs writing an open letter the Iranian's saying any deal Obama makes w/o legislative approval could be revoked by the next prez w/ "the stroke of a pen". But it's a not so veiled threat to Iran for committing the unforgivable sin of not succumbing to US hegemony.

Now that "unequivocal" statement has morphed into he's "considering" a rescue operation using American troops. Forget considering it's all but a done deal. Just a little Orwellian "Newspeak", the usual double talk fed to the American people by their gov't.

Walkers actions as governor taking on the public service unions & stripping them of their collective bargaining rights is really an assault on all working men & women. His recall will have nat'l implications.

"Rome is Burning Folks, Didn't You Get the Memo?" The revolts in the Arab world are all understandable. What underlies them is official tyranny and police state tactics against the people. The key has been the army. In Tunisia and Egypt the generals refused to fire on the protestors. Both regimes eventually fell. In America revolution isn't in the air. Oppression in the U.S. isn't widespread. Most people are comfortable. But "Rome is burning folks, didn't you get the memo?"

Tom Delay Convicted of Money Laundering, A Harbinger of Things to Come? A Texas jury on Wednesday found ex House Majority Leader Tom Delay guilty of money laundering. Hopefully his conviction will spur more prosecutions of other hack politicians and their corporate and special interest backers that have corrupted the political process in their favor. Add in SCOTUS decision in "Citizens United" along w/ Delay's conviction and it shows why the current system must be completely overhauled.

There is no legal way to justify the official OK to kill an American, outside a war zone and w/o due process. If Awlaki committed crimes, he needed to be arraigned and prosecuted in a U.S. court of law. That didn't happen. This targeted killing of an American was a criminal act by the gov't and the official who authorized it.

The Post has since become a neo-con propaganda rag & regime change booster. It's not just the Post.

Ukraine Naval provocations against Russia at Kerch Strait Last weekend an incident occurred in the Kerch Strait between Ukrainian Navy ships & the Russian Navy. Russia controls the Strait between Crimea & the Russian mainland. It separates the Black Sea from the Sea of Azov. Ships passing the Strait must notify Russian maritime officials before entering the Strait. The Ukrainian ships didn't & were detained by the Russians as aggressors. The US & Nato called it Russian aggression.

The program focused on "honoring our service members who fought in Vietnam, but conspicuously absent is a description of the antiwar movement" while referring to the "My Lai massacre" as simply the "My Lai "incident".

"Stuxnet", The Latest Cyber Warfare Weapon "Stuxnet" is the latest cyber warfare weapon; a computer worm developed by the Israeli's and the Americans that has been successful in the sabotaging Iran's nuclear centrifuges for enriching uranium. This sabotage will likely heighten Iran's resolve and sense of urgency to gain nuclear weapons capability. It will likely make the U.S. more vulnerable to cyber attack in retaliation.

Trump's State of the Union address, theater of the absurd Last night Trump gave his State of the Union address best described as theater of the absurd. He first honored Juan Guaido self proclaimed pres. of Venezuela, the imposter to succeed Pres.Maduro in a US inspired coup. Never happened. Trump then honored Rush Limbaugh giving him the Pres.

This is a national problem requiring a federal solution. Arizona's law is the siren call for Congress to act.

As part of the deal, Goldman did not admit to the SEC's allegations of wrongdoing. This was a case that screamed to be heard in open court.

Trump says Russia and China need to "come to their senses". No it's the US that needs to come to its senses We've reached an Orwellian state of affairs when Trump says Russia & China need to "come to their senses", regarding their nuclear arsenals or "we will build it up", the US nuclear arsenal. He intends to w/draw from the 1987 INF treaty when thousands of nuclear weapons were destroyed by the US &USSR. By his w/drawing from the INF it's the US needing to come to its senses expanding rather than reducing its nuclear arsenal.

Trump backed himself into a corner, he had to launch a missile strike on Syria to back up tough talk Let's face it Trump backed himself into a corner. He had to launch a missile strike on Syria to back up his tough talk earlier in the week accusing Pres. Assad of an alleged chemical attack killing his own people. Significantly no Russian military facility was hit. The strikes caused limited damage & no deaths. They did nothing to change the situation on the ground. All Damascus has been liberated & Assad is winning the war.

Regarding SCOTUS ruling in the "Hobby Lobby" case; the majority ruled in favor of the family owned corporation whereby a closely held for profit corporation run by religious families can't be required to pay for contraceptive coverage of their female employees.

This administration has no shame moralizing to ANY nation not behaving normally & not respecting int'l law. The supreme irony; since the end of WWII it is the US that has completely ignored int'l law, not behaving as a normal nation, instead being the bully against any nation that didn't follow US Diktat.

We the People Need to Confront Our Present Political State of Affairs The corporatists and their lackey's in Congress have the country by the throat. Our current electoral system must be confronted and overthrown. We just can't continue to vote for those they nominate and control. The system is rigged w/ outrageous sums of corporate largesse that corrupts the electoral process to benefit them. It must be replaced w/ a people funded, publicly financed electoral process on all levels of gov't.

Barack Obama, A Squandered Opportunity and a Failure in Leadership It is excruciating to continue to hear Barack Obama extol bipartisanship with the Republicans. His belief that working with the other side is fundamental to governing is astonishing. He has gone to extraordinary lengths to embrace them. But they are in lockstep opposition to everything. Obama was elected on a mandate for "change." That seems all but squandered. It didn't have to be this way.

Today's snap election in Israel, a referendum on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whether he remains or is booted out Today there's a snap election in Israel. The reason: Israel had a gen'l election in April but Benjamin Netanyahu's party didn't capture a majority in the Israeli Knesset to form a new gov't as no minority party would agree w/ Netanyahu to form a coalition gov't requiring today's snap election. Israel being a parliamentary type gov't the people don't directly elect a new PM. But make no mistake. This a referendum on Netanyahu.

We Seem To Be At War With Ourselves We seem at war with ourselves. Is it just cultural and political that hasn't translated itself into a societal breakdown? Maybe it has always been a house divided, never healed from the time Lincoln spoke those words warning as he did it can not stand. The extremes seem irreconcilable. The cold war ended 20 years ago. There are no real external threats against us. W/no real enemies we've turned the sights onto ourselves.
