NATO supports Turkey on tackling ISIL and PKK threats

NATO has offered political support for Turkey’s campaign against fighters in Syria and Iraq at a rare meeting in Brussels, as Ankara said the alliance may have a “duty” to become more involved. The extraordinary meeting at the NATO headquarters on Tuesday is the fifth in the organisation’s 66-year history. It came just days after...

Turkey joins battle against Islamic State in Syria

BEIRUT — Turkey has long been a reluctant partner in the U.S.-led campaign against Islamic State militants. Since the U.S. first launched airstrikes in Iraq nearly a year ago, leaders in Ankara had refused to join in, and until this week, had barred coalition warplanes from even using Turkish air bases to mount attacks in neighboring… graphic via...

NSA Whistle-blower, William Binney, Says Agency’s Methods Make Us Less Safe

In a very powerful exclusive interview, I recently had the privilege of speaking to an American hero, William Binney, NSA whistleblower. We discussed how NSA mass data collection makes us LESS safe; how the intentions behind it are not misguided but positively nefarious; how the lies that have been told about it are snowballing, and how Rand Paul presidential candidacy may uniquely represent an opportunity for change.

Responding to Terrorism

The terrorist attack in Chattanooga will certainly add fuel to the fire of people who are already paranoid about Muslims living in the USA. So what if plenty of peaceful American Muslims are appalled by what happened and would never condone such an act? The mere fact that they share certain religious beliefs with Islamic terrorists makes them guilty by association, right? Shouldn’t Islam now be outlawed from the public square? If acts...

Deal with Iran: Payback for Saudi Role on 9-11? (L’Orient Le Jour, Lebanon)

If senior officials of one of your closest allies played a role in the most devastating terrorist attacks ever to strike your country – it seems logical that one might look for alternatives. So – did the Saudi role in the September 11th attacks figure in the agreement on Iran’s nuclear program reached in Vienna last week? In this interview with Lebanon’s L’Orient Le Jour, Dr. Patrice Gourdin, Professor...

Iran nuclear deal is high risk but seems unavoidable – Part 1 of 2

Today’s nuclear deal with Iran could be inimical for Israel but seems unavoidable, given the growing military and political instability in the Middle East. Secretary of State John Kerry has won a good deal but its critics are also correct when they say that Iran will be free to do whatever it likes after 15 -20 years. Its armament in both nuclear and conventional weapons could be unstoppable. “This deal is not built on trust....

Iran nuclear deal is high risk but seems unavoidable – Part 2 of 2

At this time of high risk in the region, the deal with Iran even if shaky seems unavoidable. It offers the only available opportunity to improve the terrain for US-led moves to promote regional stability for America’s sake and that of Israel and other allies. Failure to win signatures in Vienna would have sent a resentful Iran sulking into new conspiratorial huddles against American interests. In the event of failure, China and Russia...

The Other Shoe Drops In CIA-Psychological Association Torture Conspiracy

That sound you hear — or in all likelihood didn’t hear at all — is the other shoe dropping in the scandal involving the secret collaboration between the American Psychological Association and the Bush administration to justify the CIA’s use of Nazi-like torture techniques. The first shoe dropped in April when a group of dissident health-care professionals and human rights activists released a scathing report...

A Rare Glimpse Inside ISIS ‘Model City’ – Hell on Earth

It’s called Heaven Square, but after the Islamic State (ISIS) group started using the roundabout in Raqqa for gruesome public executions it earned a new name: Hell Square. In the year since the jihadist group announced its “caliphate” last June, its de facto Syrian capital of Raqqa has been transformed into a macabre metropolis. Human...

A History of Racial Hatred And Abuse in South Carolina

A Schizephrenic Southern Splinter State The Confederate Flag Flies At Full Staff The View From The U.S. Virgin Islands By JOHN McCARTHY TMV Columnist There’s no denying it. South Carolina has a violent and racist past, with some tolerance mixed in. The mere name “South Carolina” – suggests that it broke away from a larger Carolina – and that would be true. The name Carolina is Latin for “Charles land” and goes back to 1629 when...

The murder of of a pastor and eight congregants, six of them men and three women, in a mass shooting at an historically black Charleston, South Carolina church by a white gunman is, for openers, symptomatic of three deep sicknesses...

Sadaam’s former Army is the secret of Baghdadi’s success

By Samia Nakhoul BEIRUT (Reuters) – A year after declaring his caliphate, it is clear that the secret of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s success is the army and state he has built from the remnants of Saddam Hussein’s military, and the allegiance he has won or coerced from alienated Sunni Muslims in Iraq, Syria, and beyond. In that year, the self-appointed caliph has expanded his turf from eastern Syria and western Iraq to...
