The Western War On Truth

Paul Craig Roberts - The “war on terror” has simultaneously been a war on truth. For fifteen years—from 9/11 to Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction” and “al Qaeda connections,” “Iranian nukes,” “Assad’s use of chemical weapons,” endless lies about Gadaffi, “Russian invasion of Ukraine”—the governments of the so-called Western democracies have found it essential to align themselves firmly with lies in order to pursue their agendas. Now these Western governments are attempting to discredit the truthtellers who challenge their lies.

Russian news services are under attack from the EU and Western presstitutes as purveyors of “fake news.” Abiding by its Washington master’s orders, the EU actually passed a resolution against Russian media for not following Washington’s line. Russian President Putin said that the resolution is a “visible sign of degradation of Western society’s idea of democracy.” Read more.

Qatar will continue to arm Syrian rebels even if Donald Trump ends U.S. backing for the multinational effort, Doha's foreign minister said in an interview, signaling its determination to pursue a policy the U.S. President-elect may abandon.

But Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said the wealthy Gulf state would not "go solo" and supply shoulder-fired missiles to the rebels to defend themselves against Syrian and Russian warplanes. Read more.

Basque country to seek more autonomy from Spain

Inigo Urkullu made the remarks while addressing the regional parliament as he was sworn in for a second four-year term. He said he planned to reach a future pact with the Spanish government to recognize his demands for independence.

Urkullu’s center-right party, P-N-V, won a regional election in September. The Basque Country is an autonomous region, with powers to raise its own taxes and to control policy areas ranging from education to health and jobs.

But the region is seeking to be recognized as a nation in the Spanish constitution, which would give it the right to decide to remain part of Spain or break away. Most of Spain's main parties oppose the independence drive.


The Iran-Russia-China Strategic Triangle

F. William Engdahl - The developing economic, political and military links binding Iran, China and Russia in what I see as an emerging Golden Triangle in Eurasia, are continuing to deepen insignificant areas. This, while it seems to be US geopolitical strategy in a prospective Trump Administration to distance Washington from both Iran and from China, while dangling the carrot of lessened confrontation between Washington and Moscow–classic Halford Mackinder or Kissinger geopolitics of avoiding a two-front war that was colossally backfiring on Washington by trying to shift the power balance. At present, the dynamic of the past several years of closer cooperation by the three pivotal states of the Eurasian Heartland is gaining strategic momentum. The latest is the visit of China’s Minister of Defense and of Russian senior officials to Teheran.

On November 14-15 in Teheran, during a high-level visit of the Chinese Defense Minister, General Chang Wanquan, with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan, the two major Eurasian nations signed a deal to enhance military cooperation. Read more.

Greek police clash with anti-Obama protesters

Clashes have broken out between Greek riot police and people protesting against visiting US President Barack Obama. Police used tear gas to disperse the demonstrators.

The protesters took to the streets of Athens in defiance of a government ban on any public gathering. The rallies were organized by left-wing groups. They called on people to march against the US president as the main representative of imperialist forces. They also urged the protesters to clash with police in order to sabotage Obama’s trip.

The Greek capital is already on a security lockdown with central districts of the city, subway stations and tourist hubs out of access. The government has also deployed thousands of security forces.

Anti-US sentiment runs high in Greece which still remembers the Washington’s support for the Junta dictatorship in the 1960s and 70s.

Russian military finds traces of chemical agents in Aleppo

Russian military personnel have found traces of chemical agents and toxic gas cylinders during a search operation in the southwest of the flashpoint Syrian city of Aleppo.

According to the Russian military, the samples found at a suspected chemical weapons workshop will be sent to a scientific laboratory in Moscow for further investigation. The findings came just days after the Russian Defense Ministry confirmed that militants launched fresh chemical attacks against Syrian army positions in eastern Aleppo.

The Syria military earlier reported that the attack left scores of civilians and troops injured. Foreign-backed militants have reportedly launched at least three chemical attacks in Aleppo over the past two weeks.

The US military spokersman, however, repeated the claim that the US airstrike aimed to help Afghan forces who were battling the Taliban. At least 32 people, including babies and children were killed and dozens were wounded in the bombing of the village of Boz in the Kunduz district.

The Commander of US forces in Afghanistan, has said that an initial probe suggested the strike likely caused civilian deaths. In a statement, General John Nicholson regretted the loss of innocent lives and pledged to carry out an investigation to determine the facts.

Local Afghans have called for justice, accusing US forces of intentionally targeting civilians. Amnesty International has also called for an inquiry into the incident.
