Wear your Indifference with Pride!

Aren't you getting sick to death of Assange this and Assange that? Don't you wish guys like him would stop trying to tell us stuff?

Well, it's never too early to start thinking of clever Christmas stocking stuffers, and here's the perfect expression of many Americans' complete indifference to war crimes committed against other countries' people.

Concentration Camps for gay men in Chechnya? WTF!

Brian Mon, 2017-05-01 20:25

In Chechnya, they're throwing gay men into concentration camps! Doesn't that piss you off? I know it would me. Except — wait for it — it appears not to be true.

US State Dept WaPo on Viet Nam, 1965 (and now?)

(As the Democrat wing of the anti-Trump "movement" careens around, blathering on about Russian aggression in US elections, brandishing a "report" agreed to by all 17 "intelligence" agencies of the US Government, a "report" which even those agencies that "agreed" to it won't endorse as factual, I came across this article from the old IF Stone Weekly from 50+years ago. It's instructive to read now because it perhaps demonstrates why USG leaders no longer supply any evidence for their accusations against official enemies.

Reading "western" media on Syria

Brian Fri, 2016-11-18 14:54

OMG! Those damned Russians! One week they're interfering with the US presidential election, the next they're bombing hospitals and schools in Syria. Woe is us! How are we to understand such perfidy?! Herein a few pointers.

Syria "White Helmets" rescue a Syrian girl: again and again and again

Anti-war Movement Needed NOW!

If there's a peace movement out there, it's time to get up and howl. If there is not, it's time to get working on one. There isn't much time.

Absolutely the worst thing, in my opinion, that can happen in the POTUS election currently taking up way too much space, volume, and megabytes, is if Shillary were to win in a landslide.

Vote for Jill Stein, please, and anti-war movement needed NOW!

Some child victims we care about, some we don't

Some child victims we care about, some we don't. An injury to a child caused by someone we don't like, we beat our breasts and tear our hair out. An injury to a child caused by someone we do like, well, shit happens.

Top left, you'll undoubtedly recognize little Omran Daqneesh, injured in a "Russian or Syrian" airstrike, and nobody ever figured out, or cared, what party dropped the bomb. Little Omran was photographed by the "White Helmets," a group of PR campaigners embedded in Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian al-Qaeda affiliate. The "White Helmets" are dearly loved in the "West," are seriously funded by the "West," and have amazing contacts in the Western LameStream media. If you've managed NOT to see a photo of Omran, you'd be quite unusual. Omran, despite being alive, which makes him luckier than a lot of Syrian kids, is a victim we care about. A "worthy" victim.

Kids on the left: Poor darlings! Kids on the right: Meh.

Syrian "Revolution": Campists unite!

Brian Sat, 2016-08-27 20:20

We're duds!

Those of us who support the elected Syrian government over the foreign-supported and supplied proxy war, the fighters of which are a wahhabist, head-chopping rabble, have it all wrong. We're not anti-imperialists, we're "campists."

Syrian "revolutionaries" engage in democratic decision-making. That's right, they decided to cut the kid's head off.

Lies, lies, more lies...Milošević exonerated

Brian Fri, 2016-07-22 12:45

This is an absolute stunner. Slobodan Milošević has been completely exonerated of being the “mastermind” behind the war crimes in Bosnia. Here's where to find it.

In March this year, the "International Tribunal ... issued its judgement in the case of Radovan Karadžić, the head of the Republika Srpska (RS).

Slobodan Milošević—not a war criminal

Achcar: Left confused about Syria. Me: Oh, really?

Brian Thu, 2016-01-14 20:06

Is the "left" confused about Syria? Are we overlooking the revolutionary possibilities in the Syrian "uprising"? According to Gilbert Achcar, we are. He's just published a piece in Jacobin magazine...

August Massacre at Douma, Syria: More "Rebel" BS?

Brian Sat, 2015-09-19 19:26

By now, the "rebels" in Syria, and their enablers, such as the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (sic) and Human Rights Watch (NATO, inc) have established for themselves such a record of lies and BS that I simply don't believe anything they say. The massacre at al-Houla; the "chemical attack" in East Ghouta, Damascus; the massacre at Deraa; and many others...

Photo all over Twitter on 16 August; were they dead before the explosions?
