The Coup in Turkey did not Fail

Erdogan

It was designed to fail. It was planned by Erdogan to grab more power, and the U.S. let it happen. The Turkish Republic endured 5 coup d’états since its inception in 1923. Beginning in 1960, the Turkish military overthrew governments around once every decade, which gave them a lot of experience and expertise in coups. The last one on July 15, 2016 which was digitally aired to the world, is the only one that failed, miserably. When we look at the footage, it was too theatrical to be real. Many people started to call it a “false flag coup” within…

How Would You Like to Marry Your Rapist?

kadikoy-ve-taksimde-kadinlar-sokaga-cikti-68359

It is not a fictional idea, depicting the laws of an alien planet. Believe it or not, a rapist marrying his victim after the rape was seen as an appropriate option in many countries, and the idea was supported by the rape laws. From Brazil to Morocco, rapists were able to escape prison simply by saying, “I’ll marry her”. Despite the abolition of these laws in many countries, some are still in effect. Currently, Turkey’s parliament (TBMM) is reviewing a report, completed by the Commission on Divorce, to reinstate this rape law which was appealed in 2005 while the country…

Hillary Clinton’s Ukraine Problem

Ukraine

Hillary Clinton claims her experience in foreign policy makes her a better candidate for the U.S. Presidency. Media outlets and voters who understand ‘foreign policy’ is one of the most important issues in this election, are checking up on her claim, and it does not look good. Mrs. Clinton has been receiving some criticism for her Honduras policy. She openly admits to supporting the current Honduras Government that came to power after the 2009 military coup that ousted the country’s democratically elected President Manuel Zelaya. Unfortunately, supporting fascistic coup governments was a pattern during her tenure as a Secretary of…

Who’s Making A Killing From the Paris Terror Attacks?

LM 2

Written by Daniel McAdams The bodies in Paris are not yet buried, while the vultures with dollar signs (and pounds and Euros, etc) in their eyes have already swooped down for a feast. Terrorism, what is it good for? The military-industrial-Congressional complex: Thanks to Glenn Greenwald for bringing to light the enormous profits that are already rolling in for the merchants of death as Paris still smolders. As Greenwald points out, the markets could hardly wait to start buying from these military suppliers: 2- The surveillance/spy state: This morning UK Prime Minister David Cameron announced that, in light of the…

Islamisation and Kurdification of Indigenous People of Iraq

Iranian-Assyrians

Assyrians are the indigenous people of what is known today as Iraq; they belong to the historical land of Assyria, in the north of modern Iraq. Their state fell to the Persian Medes and the Chaldees in 612 BC. Today, Assyrians are distinct in their identity which still survives and is practiced in cultural forms of language and traditions. Their language is “Modern Assyrian” (Akkadian with Aramaic accent influence), sometimes called “Syriac” liturgically. They were the first nation to embrace Christianity in Iraq as is cited in the First Epistle of Peter: 5-13, and belong to several churches which, in…

How Did Global Jihad Reach China?

1967293

British publishing, The Independent, reported today that China, once again, banned Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting, for the Turkic Muslim population of the Xinjiang Province of the country. The report claims that the Muslims throughout the district – which is known to have a majority population of Uyghurs/Turkic people – have been told not to fast during the Holy Month. The problem with this statement is that it was mostly false. You can not force millions of people to stop fasting and start eating. Any Muslim who wishes to fast is perfectly able to do so. Only thing the Chinese…

According to EurActiv News, financing of the extension of a pipeline carrying Russian gas from Turkey to Greece has been secured and a deal could be signed this month, the Greek energy minister said Monday.

Sen. McCain on “Dismemberment of a Sovereign Nation”

U.S. Senator John McCain gives a press conference in Kyiv in September 2014.

US Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has recently turned down an advisory position to Ukraine’s President Poroshenko, due to the US constitution’s prohibition of such a thing. In a written statement posted on his senate webpage, the senator wrote, “I am deeply proud to be a friend to Ukraine in their fight against Vladimir Putin’s dismemberment of a sovereign nation.” After reading this statement, one feels the urge to remind the Senator that Iraq, Libya and Syria were also ‘sovereign’ nations, once. Syria is still trying to stay sovereign. I wonder if the good senator would like to give us a…

Remember When USAid Created Fake Twitter in Cuba?

In December, 2014, the U.S. President Barack Obama announced his goal to re-establish diplomatic relations with Cuba which were severed in 1961. In April, 2015, President Obama and President Raul Castro of Cuba met in Panama City, Panama, to further discuss the two countries’ next steps forward to advance mutual interests. The U.S. ended its diplomatic relations with Cuba in 1961 after the Cuban Revolution of 1959 against the US-backed authoritarian government of Cuban President Fulgencio Batista. In later years, President JFK would describe Batista regime as one of the bloodiest and most repressive dictatorships in the history of Latin…

Diplomacy vs. War: Iran and U.S. Relations at a Glance

Iran-Hostage

Iran has been a country of coupes and revolutions, and a playing field for the imperial powers since WWI. This article summarizes Iran’s relationship with the West, starting from early 20th century until today. Iran’s first revolution by Ahmad Shah Qajar was called the Persian Constitutional Revolution or Iranian Constitutional Revolution (1905/1907), which established a parliament (majlis) to provide independence from Russian imperialism.

100803-ColombiaCartagenaAntiBaseVigil-SOAWatch-02

The negotiations seek an end to Colombia’s 50-year-old internal conflict with the FARC that has led to 220,000 deaths…

Yemen is Falling Apart: Details (Video)

The poorest country in the Middle East is fast becoming the newest and hottest disaster in the region. There are many dimensions to the chaos in Yemen; sectarian, political, geographic. The Yemeni government collapsed at the beginning of this year. Its Western and Saudi backed President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi resigned under pressure in January, 2015, after the Shia militia, known as Houthis, seized the presidential palace and besieged his residence in Sana’a, Yemen’s capital. The Houtes are partially backed by Iran and their power base is in the mainly Shia northern highlands. Houtes has been at war with Al Qaeda and other hardcore…

Another ‘Cold War’ with Russia? Ukraine Question

How did the United States get into another Cold War with Russia?  The Nation Magazine’s editor-in-chief, Katrina vanden Heuvel, and  American scholar of Russian studies at Princeton University and New York University, Prof. Stephan Cohen offered historical context on this question in a discussion hosted by the American Committee for East-West Accord in Brussels earlier this month. “Does media coverage shape the political agenda or vice versa? Probably both, or variously depending on the subject. But the US media, by so unequivocally accepting the official US Government/EU version of events, blaming all on Russia, failing to provide history, nuance, let alone complexity, is now…
