[ Editor’s Notes: It is one thing for the US and it military to lie over what secrets it has, but it is another thing to also lie to the America people. Why? Because it is an attack on our American democracy and the American people, that’s why.

Not only can an uniformed electorate not protect itself from such a abuse, but a misinformed one is even in greater danger. To make matters worse, our elected representatives have not viewed this as something they want to deal with head on for a variety of reasons.

One of these is they hide key information themselves and also misinform when it is to their political or personal benefit. One of the failures of our democracy is there are not enough provisions made to deal with such internal disloyalty effectively. We only have replacing bad apples during elections.

One way to fix it is to reform how Congress is run, starting with removing all internal oversight control over where they investigate themselves and the cover up whatever they please. Why shouldn’t the public have the final say on how the Senate and House are run, and be given the power to enforce it? Which would be more in the public’s interest?

Take ethics violations for example. They should be handled by outside tribunals of non-political professionals. Congress’ limited time should never be wasted on internal police actions.

The same could be said for military tribunals. Why should the military be allowed to investigate itself, when there is an obvious conflict of interest? The reason is, of course, so politically sensitive truths and persons can be covered up or protected.

I have seen no public interest for this, so the perpetrators have nothing to worry about now. Even worse, the public swims in a sea of conflicts to where its lack of focus is a permanent state, with social media being one of the key tools used to do this.

Our power over government declines more and more every year, and that is no accident, Color me worried, very worried Jim W. Dean ]

General Flynn, who served in the US Army for more than 30 years, called the US invasion of Iraq a major error. “There was no Daesh before the US invaded”.

– First published … April 05, 2019

Moscow has warned Washington over claims that Iran was behind the deaths of more than 600 US troops in Iraq, saying the allegation is aimed at escalating tensions with Tehran.

“We were surprised to read the statement by US State Department Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook, in which he claims that Iran is involved in the death of 600 US troops in Iraq,” said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on Thursday.

Zakharova stressed that the US needs to be held responsible for its provocative statements amid Washington’s extreme “anti-Iranian sentiment.”

“There is an impression that the US is thinking up another excuse to explain the escalation of relations with Iran if they deem it appropriate,” she said.

Zakharova’s comments come after Hook made the allegations citing a Pentagon report on Tuesday. Hook also stated that the US is not looking to grant any further sanction waivers to countries importing Iranian oil in a bid to ramp up pressure on Iran.

Warning of a new escalation of US pressure against Iran, Zakharova highlighted Washington’s occupation of Iraq in 2003 as a demonstration of the country’s “aggressive” foreign policy.

“There should be no doubt that American intervention against Iraq will remain in history as the gravest violation of international law and a de facto criminal act,” she said.

The spokeswoman further advised the US “not to look for excuses to start a new conflict, increasing the suffering throughout the world with its aggressive policy.”

The US, backed by the UK, invaded Iraq under the pretext that the regime of Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in 2003. No such weapons were ever found in Iraq.

More than one million Iraqis were killed as a result of the invasion and subsequent occupation of the country, according to the California-based investigative organization Project Censored.

US policies in Iraq further led to the emergence of many terrorist groups in the country, ultimately leading to the creation of the infamous Daesh Takfiri terrorist group which overran vast swathes of Iraq and Syria in 2014.

  1. The US clutching at straws trying to continue the narrative that Iran is a rogue state that needs to be bombed out of existence? Or just more tough talk trying to get more budget dollars for the Pentagon to blow some dollars on more pie in the sky defence technology and maybe a few hookers and a few rounds of beer for the boys to celebrate their success in losing another few billion of taxpayers money?

  2. ““There should be no doubt that American intervention against Iraq will remain in history as the gravest violation of international law and a de facto criminal act,” she said.”

    well said, but not quite accurate enough. in all reality, just like i’ve said many times before, it should read ” the israeli-induced and forced american intervention against iraq …”
    he duff and dean, you should’ve posted this along with the gen flynn post;
    general wesley clark’s famous “7 countries in 5 years ” video
    its just a damn shame he didn’t have either the foresight, or the balls, to call out israel like david duke had “before it all started”!

  3. Was watching an old movie the other night Spy Games with Redford and Pitt – They showed a clip of what looked to be the Beruit bombings in 85 – about 2 times @10 seconds of it – looked like a big Mushroom cloud to me ! Sometimes, jewywood likes to show certain – in your face America clips of their Israeli ” work”– this looked like one of those clips.

  4. “Iran is involved in the death of 600 US troops in Iraq” I’m more along the lines of Israel being responsible for them being there in the first place. Have we all forgotten Juba the Sniper with his Israeli Rafael video Sniper rifle? Or the IDF snipers nest captured and shooters roughed up by a platoon of U.S. marines in Iraq?

    BDS 2019! And for as long as it takes!

  5. WAR WITH IRAN – BY HOOK OR BY CROOK

    Let those responsible for sending US troops to Iraq take the blame for their regretted deaths: PNAC Zionists, home brewed NeoCons and Beelzebub’s bumptious Brit – one Tony Blair. Bibi is the one pushing the anti-Iran agenda for years doing his damndest to achieve his Eretz Israel goals. He has been crying ‘Wolf!’ for so long he desrves a double-barrell, surname that is, to put alongside his well deserved misnomer ‘Nothing-Yahoo’ on Hotel Lilliput registers the world over or any hotel for that matter. This Gulliver to the Goy at 72 feet tall needs to be taken down a tent peg or two for his own good and the good of humanity. Start by exposing the Zionist involvement in 9/11. It suited Israel by all accounts, including Bibi’s “9/11 is good for Israel.” Going to war against Iran at Israel’s behest, is not something the Joint Chiefs should consider despite passing the pipe to Bibi for so long. Trump has delivered in spades for Israel but pushing the United States into a war against Iran is a bit more plug tobacco than Trump can chew or tamp into a hooka. (The latter I’m not so sure about). A war against Iran raises arguably the worst possible scenario for the US economy with the price of gas set to sky-rocket and put even more pressure on the coming gazillion dollar implosion.

    Trump’s endearing gift to America will be – no, not the wall, but by way of his promised repayment to gambler Adelson for election shekels received – the imminent arrival of camel jockeys at Saratoga – according to one song – the right place for ‘a total eclipse of the sun’. How prophetic. To us, already the beasts of burden for Israel’s heavy financial load this has got to be the last straw.

  6. It is for these and other reasons we hereby Declare our Independence from this Present Federal Government form and call for a Constitutional Convention to write better laws to hold ALL level of government accountable for its actions that have been bleeding the American people dry. We will not march to new wars, except to overthrow the current Present Federal Government so that the 99% of the people shall live in peace, in prosperity, in health and in freedom from lies and evil machinations that our people have suffered under since the beginning of this country created by the genocide of the Native American People.

    It is long past due, the requisite 34 State Assemblies have called for a New Constitutional Convention and it is the Present Federal Government that has REFUSED to call it to order to address the ills outlined above.

    99% of Americans cry out: So say we ALL !!!

    • To start with you need to call the Corporation of United States to answer for its crimes against humanity. Then initiate the legal proceeding to quit being a citizen of the said United States and become an American citizen, claim your birthright and stop being a slave to the corporate entity that has woven a spider’s web of unconstitutional laws to derail everything that was/is good about America. Don’t let them define you as an incompetent.

  7. In the future please include a photograph of Ms. Zakharova. Inquiring minds want to know what her latest hair-do looks like. Is she still going Blonde? You know, real important stuff and the like.

  8. Obviously the U.S. State Dept. Special Rep. Brian Hook was carefully selected for his loyalty to Israel.
    The American people deserve better than this but are they willing to accept some bitter truths or will they reject them out of some nationalistic fervor? Time and again many Americans refuse to accept the truth.
    The lies have to stop. No one in Washington is above the law. No one. The nation is no longer a republic of laws but a lawless nation headed towards oblivion. The media has to stop being the echo chamber for lawless Intelligence/quasi military organizations such as the CIA and Mossad.
    Is it any wonder that both congress and the media have such low ratings.
    Thomas Jefferson was correct that only a well informed public is the best defense of liberty and freedom.
