Syria What’s Ahead? Diplomacy or Military Escalation (VIDEO)

The Metastasizing US Military Drone Program

It was never in doubt that the US has expanded its military drone program continuously, at least since 2001, and continues to do so. Not only have the numbers of active, armed Predators and Reapers increased, but continuing research and development have yielded larger, faster drones capable of carrying more armaments, better video feeds, and …

Yemen & The Global Revolution Against Terrorism

A lecture by Caleb Maupin, a member of the United Nations Press Corps, and recently returned from traveling on the Iran Shahed, a Red Crescent aid ship that traveled to Yemen, but was turned back by Saudi violence and forced to deliver its cargo to the U.N. at a U.S. base in Djibouti.   The Red Crescent doctors and medical service providers on the ship were very disappointed.   Caleb addressed to a gathering organized in New York City by Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (F.I.S.T.), an Anarchist youth organization.

The Nonviolent Hegemon

The antiwar movement in the United States is severely divided at present.  Even discounting the people who have drunk the Kool-Aid of the MSM or take at face value the pronouncements of US officials on foreign policy, there is much discussion around what  divides the antiwar movement and how can it be reformulated in a broader context.

There are some who have said that as revolutionary socialists they don’t always agree with’pacifists’.  I guess that is one guideline, but ‘revolution’ is different things to different people, and if you have ever gone to a nonviolence training you might have learned that the same is true of ‘pacifism’.  I consider myself both nonviolent and a revolutionary thinker.    There is a broad stroke that reflects the widest division of the antiwar movement as I see it.   That is the division between those who ‘buy’ U.S. hegemony and those who don’t ‘buy’ it.

In Their Own Words: US intelligence on AQI and the Syrian War

The DoD Document from 2012:

A number of bloggers have already reported on the DoD Intelligence Report from 2012 [1] that was recently obtained through a FOIA request and published by Judicial Watch a few weeks ago.   In fact so many people wrote about it that I wasn’t going to bother.   Until I noticed something, a quote that kept showing up in the reports, that is contradicted by earlier government documents related to Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI). . . .

Earlier Research by the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point:

To give some depth to this analysis, we can turn to a couple of earlier research reports obtained by Tony Cartalucci a year or more ago.    These reports,  Al Qa’ida’s Foreign Fighters in Iraq, a preliminary report published in late 2007, and Bombers, Bank Accounts and Bleedout: Al Qa’ida’s road in and out of Iraq, published in 2008, are research papers produced by the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point.   They are based on analysis of documents retrieved from an abandoned AQI base on Mt. Sinjar  where they received and deployed foreign fighters coming in through Syria. . . .
