Liars Lying About Nearly Everything – The Unz Review

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 18, 2017

http://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/liars-lying-about-nearly-everything/

The United States has been using lies to go to war since 1846, when Americans who believed in manifest destiny sought to expand to the Pacific Ocean at the expense of Mexico, acquiring by force of arms California and what were to become the southwestern states. In 1898 the U.S. picked up the pieces of a dying Spanish Empire in a war that was driven by American imperialists and the yellow dog reporting of the Hearst Newspaper chain. And then came World War 1, World War 2, and Korea, all avoidable and all enabled by deliberate lying coming out of Washington… Read the rest of this entry »

White House Close to Finalizing Over $100 Billion in Arms Sales to Saudis

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 15, 2017

http://news.antiwar.com/2017/05/14/white-house-close-to-finalizing-over-100-billion-in-arms-sales-to-saudis/

Earlier this month, US officials said the US was seeking to reach “billions” of dollars in arms sales to Saudi Arabia as part of Trump’s visit to Riyadh. With a week left before the visit, officials now say the White House is very close to the deal, and that it will amount to over $100 billion in sales.

The same Saudi’s that financed 9/11 probably using US paid for resources. Read the rest of this entry »

Iran may be providing some weapons to the Houthi rebels, but it’s important to clarify what support the US has given to the Saudi-led coalition. As of March 21, 2016, Human Rights Watch reported the following weapon sales, in 2015 to the Saudi government:

  • July 2015, the US Defense Department approved a number of weapons sales to Saudi Arabia, including a US $5.4 billion deal for 600 Patriot Missiles and a $500 million deal for more than a million rounds of ammunition, hand grenades, and other items, for the Saudi army.
  • According to the US Congressional review, between May and September, the US sold $7.8 billion worth of weapons to the Saudis.
  • In October, the US government approved the sale to Saudi Arabia of up to four Lockheed Littoral Combat Ships for $11.25 billion.
  • In November, the US signed an arms deal with Saudi Arabia worth $1.29 billion for more than 10,000 advanced air-to-surface munitions including laser-guided bombs, “bunker buster” bombs, and MK84 general purpose bombs; the Saudis have used all three in Yemen.

The US Provided Cover for the Saudi Starvation Strategy in Yemen

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 10, 2017

Although the UN agencies have offered no public estimate of the number of Yemenis who have died of malnutrition-related conditions, it is likely that the figure is much higher than the estimate of 10,000 killed directly by the Saudi-coalition bombing. United Nations agencies have estimated that 462,000 Yemeni children under five years of age are already suffering severe acute malnutrition, putting them at serious risk of death from starvation and malnutrition-related disease.

The Real Reason Governments are Blaming Youtube for Terrorism | The Daily Bell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 25, 2017

http://www.thedailybell.com/news-analysis/the-real-reason-governments-are-blaming-youtube-for-terrorism/

And that is what this all comes down to. The government wants control over the internet, control over what we say, and how we communicate.

The terrorists which the government supports and creates will be the excuse for government censorship and oppression of citizens under their control.

How laughable that the government claims to be doing everything they can. We all know that is not true.

But even more ridiculous is attempting to put all the blame on websites that host content. With massive amount of content on Youtube, how can they be expected to police every single video? They already review 98% of flagged content within 24 hours, and also within 24 hours they usually remove content that the government asks them to take down. Read the rest of this entry »

Why Is The US Military In Yemen? Why Aren’t Saudi Troops Doing The Dirty Work?

Navy SEALs startled by terrorists’ combat readiness in Yemen mission

http://news.antiwar.com/2017/03/16/navy-seals-startled-by-how-combat-ready-yemeni-al-qaeda-is/

The mission, the first of President Trump’s administration, is widely regarded as a failure, and while the White House continues to claim that intelligence was recovered during the raid, Pentagon officials have repeatedly conceded that what was recovered was largely things they already knew, and a collection of telephone numbers containing no specifically actionable intelligence.

Saying What Needs To Be Said – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 7, 2017

https://lewrockwell.com/2017/03/laurence-m-vance/saying-needs-said/

In fact, it is completely standard for U.S. presidents.” And like his predecessors in the “war on terror”—Bush and Obama— Trump never mentioned the dead civilians that the U.S. military left in its wake. 

Ryan Owens died senselessly. He died for a lie. He died in vain. He died in service to the state. He died as a pawn in the hands of Uncle Sam. He died for a deeply flawed U.S. foreign policy. He died in a place he had no business going. He died for U.S. hegemony. He died for the military/industrial complex. He died for empire.

Pakistan is next on the Empire’s list

Posted by Martin C. Fox on September 27, 2011

I thought Yemen would be next to be invaded by the forces of freedom and goodness.  Pakistan looks to be where it is at.  It is tough to win hearts and minds when we are burning down the village, by remote control, at the same time.  See here and here for the lowdown on the latest terrorist soup du jour.
