How many of us have really examined the historical “truths” in our textbooks and presented on television about the Federal Reserve Board, the World Wars, Pearl Harbor, the Kennedy Assassinations and that of Martin Luther King? Have you ever heard of Deir Yassin? The Lavon Affair? The USS Liberty Attack? The Pollard Spy Case? The real story on 9-11?

… by Russia Today, Moscow [ Editor’s Note: The EU just can’t get its act together. It tells Iran it plans to stand by the JCPOA and then goes deer in the headlights when the rubber meets the road. One EU country has to physically host the Special Purpose Vehicle, SPV, facility. Sure it would More..

The American administration under Trump has become so addicted to waging economic sanctions; a new form of war, against other countries to a point where it does not hesitate to break international laws, to impose sanctions against its strategic allies, and to face the risk of international condemnation and isolation as a result. The sanctions against Iran falls in such categories. Keeping in mind the failure of the last 40 years old international sanctions against Iran one questions the logic behind imposing such fruitless sanctions? What do these sanctions have to do with Israel?
An “active allegiance to Satan” is the political ideology of the United States, Saudi Arabia, and indeed Israel, specifically when it comes to dealing with important issues in the Middle East. The Jamal Khashoggi debacle again makes this very clear. The recent war in Yemen is another example.

When U.S. officials finally learned about Israel’s nuclear weapons back in the 1970s and 80s, they were completely shocked because they had underestimated Israel. The officials admitted when they first saw some of those warheads, “Our thought was ‘Holy shit!’ How could we have been so wrong? We always said, ‘So the Israelis got ten warheads? Okay. So what?
