Obama officials admit support of Saudi-led war was a mistake, Trump extends support to the Saudis

Non-stop hypocrisy by the Western media and Washington's hawks


Situation in Yemen is out of control. The continuous blockade of humanitarian aid by the brutal Saudi regime leads to one of the worst humanitarian crises for decades.

Bettina Luescher of the World Food Programme (WFP), reported that it's obviously clear that Yemen is in the grips of the world's biggest hunger crisis. It is really the biggest crisis that we have in the moment anywhere in the world. People who are severely food insecure, approximately 8.4 million. Acutely malnourished children, six months to five years, around 1.8 million. Acutely malnourished pregnant or nursing women, around 1.1 million. This is a nightmare that is happening right now.

The enormous hypocrisy of the Western mainstream media is outrageous. They continuously demonize the Venezuelan government, avoiding to record the right-wing opposition atrocities and the fact that Venezuela has been suffered from a fierce economic war launched by the US. They speak about a humanitarian crisis there, despite that, according to a recent UN inspection, there is no 'humanitarian crisis' in the country.

Yet, they avoid, as much as they can, to refer to the humanitarian disaster in Yemen, caused by the brutal Saudi regime and its allies - that is the US and other authoritarian states of the region. We have to assume that this happens also because the US and the UK are the biggest arms sellers to Saudi Arabia.

So, naturally, the enormous hypocrisy of the US officials is equally outrageous.

As Aaron Maté of the Real News points out, recently, Obama administration officials expressed some regret for what they helped start back in March 2015. Samantha Power, the former US Ambassador to the UN is among those to come out and say "We made a mistake in supporting the Saudi-led war."

Shireen Al-Adeimi, born in Yemen and lived in the United States for 10 years, states:

It's a very hypocritical stance, because these numbers were just as dire when Obama was under control. Maybe we didn't hear about them as much, but people were dying. People were dying of cholera, of violence, and the Saudis were committing air strike after air strike after air strike. Human rights organizations were calling for a halt to US support right from the beginning. It's a bit hypocritical for Obama administrators to now finally say, "Oh, okay, now that this is a Trump war on Yemen, now we're against it."

But nonetheless, we need lawmakers in the Senate and in the House, lawmakers such as Chris Murphy, who have been calling adamantly for US to stop its support of Saudi Arabia military. That's the best hope that we, as Yemenis, have.

The US Army recently just posted on their Twitter page the extent of their support to the Saudi military and it's really astonishing. This includes training, not only refueling airplanes midair, but also repairing those aircrafts and vehicles when they've been damaged in the war, updating them, providing the soldiers with basic training all the way to very sophisticated training.

The US is very heavily involved in the war on Yemen by helping the Saudis. Without them, the Saudis aren't going to be able to continue to wage this war much longer.

Of course, we know, then, there are also weapon shipments that are ongoing and have increased under Trump's administration. The Saudis are very much reliant on US support and that's what needs to stop if we want to see an end to this war.



Real progressives like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Tulsi Gabbard, should join forces immediately with voices like Murphy to end, as soon as possible, any US aid to the Saudi regime and open the road to the UN to provide direct humanitarian aid to the people of Yemen.

ΕΠΕΙΓΟΝ: Να απελευθερωθεί η 16χρονη Παλαιστίνια ακτιβίστρια Ahed Tamini

Εδώ και πολλά χρόνια, η Ahed Tamini και η οικογένειά της αγωνίζονται ενάντια στους παράνομους ισραηλινούς εποικισμούς. Όμως τώρα, η Ahed αντιμετωπίζει έως και 10 χρόνια φυλάκισης εξαιτίας ενός διαπληκτισμού με Ισραηλινούς στρατιώτες.

Στις 15 Δεκεμβρίου, η Ahed Tamini και η οικογένειά της διαμαρτύρονταν ενάντια στην απόφαση του Trump να αναγνωρίσει την Ιερουσαλήμ ως πρωτεύουσα του Ισραήλ. Κατά τη διάρκεια συμπλοκών, ο Mohammed, 14χρονος ξάδερφος της Ahed, χτυπήθηκε στο κεφάλι από κοντινή απόσταση από μία πλαστική σφαίρα ενός ισραηλινού στρατιώτη και χρειάστηκε να υποβληθεί σε χειρουργική επέμβαση, όπου του αφαιρέθηκε ένα τμήμα του κρανίου του.

Αργότερα την ίδια μέρα, η Ahed ήρθε αντιμέτωπη με Ισραηλινούς στρατιώτες όταν μπήκαν στην αυλή του σπιτιού της. Στο βίντεο που έγινε viral, το άοπλο κορίτσι φαίνεται να χαστουκίζει και να χτυπάει δύο πάνοπλους Ισραηλινούς στρατιώτες. Είναι ξεκάθαρο πως δεν αποτελούσε πραγματική απειλή γι’ αυτούς, αφού μπόρεσαν εύκολα να απωθήσουν τις κινήσεις της. Όμως τώρα, η Ahed κινδυνεύει με 10 χρόνια φυλάκιση - μία ποινή εντελώς δυσανάλογη της πράξης της.

Στις 19 Δεκεμβρίου, Ισραηλινοί στρατιώτες έκαναν έφοδο στο σπίτι της Ahed κατά τη διάρκεια της νύχτας, Τη συνέλαβαν και τώρα αντιμετωπίζει κατηγορίες όπως διακεκριμένη επίθεση, παρακώλυση του έργου των στρατιωτών και υποκίνηση βίας.

Κατά τη διάρκεια της κράτησής της, έπρεπε να υπομείνει επιθετικές μορφές ανάκρισης, ακόμα και κατά τις νυχτερινές ώρες, καθώς και απειλές εναντίον της οικογένειάς της. Η δίκη της ενώπιον του Ισραηλινού στρατιωτικού δικαστηρίου ανηλίκων πρόκειται να γίνει σύντομα και θα βρισκόμαστε εκεί να υπερασπιστούμε τα δικαιώματα της.

Ελάτε να δημιουργήσουμε παγκόσμια κατακραυγή για την άμεση απελευθέρωση της Αχέντ.

Υπογράψτε την έκκλησή μας και ζητήστε από τον Ισραηλινό πρωθυπουργό Benjamin Netanyahu:

- Να απελευθερωθεί άμεσα η 16χρονη ακτιβίστρια Ahed Tamimi, η οποία μπορεί να αντιμετωπίσει έως και 10 χρόνια φυλάκισης.

- Να διασφαλιστεί πως τα παιδιά από την Παλαιστίνη δεν θα υπόκεινται σε κράτηση ή φυλάκιση, εκτός κι αν πρόκειται για περιπτώσεις όπου είναι εμφανώς απαραίτητο και ως έσχατη λύση ανάγκης για το μικρότερο δυνατό χρονικό διάστημα.

Totalitarianism completed: the US deep state becomes more powerful than ever


Whistleblowers Thomas Drake and Coleen Rowley spoke to Aaron Maté and the Real News about the horrifying consequences of the new bill that is about to extend the government's warrantless surveillance of American citizens.

As they point out:

The database is so large that if people now check a name, and they don't need probable cause to check any American's name in there, and they come up with something, they can build a criminal case based on whatever information is already collected in that database. That would just affect ordinary Americans.

What it's doing is simply extending the Executive Branch's ability to do warrant-free monitoring of a significant portion of domestic communications involving Americans. It also permits what-about searches against the database and it provides a "loophole," what Senator Ron Wyden has referred to as the backdoors mechanism, and all under the guise of "conducting foreign intelligence for national security purposes."

Not only does it monitor, which is otherwise known as surveilling Americans as part of this program, if Jeff Sessions declares that it's for National Security purposes, it is unreviewable by the courts. In essence, the Executive Branch is now taking onto itself the review process, which is a violation of the separation of powers in terms of the three branches of the government. Of course, Congress is just going along with this.

This is simply a continuation of what has been in place now since shortly after 9/11 under "legal means."


A first serious impact here is that Whistleblowers will be fiercely prosecuted automatically with absolutely zero chance to fight-back in courts, even if they expose big crimes of any US administration against US citizens or foreign countries. Which is actually the key target of this totalitarian bill on the pretext of 'terrorism'.

But we have to look back at some stories related with the first days of the Internet to understand that the US deep state will become more powerful and authoritarian than ever.

One of the leading exponents of the idea that cyberspace could be a place where we would be liberated from the old, corrupt hierarchies of politics and power and explore new ways of being, was John Perry Barlow. Barlow wrote a manifesto that he called A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace. It was addressed to all politicians, telling them to keep out of this new world. It was going to be incredibly influential, because what Barlow did was give a powerful picture of the internet not as a network controlled by giant corporations, but, instead, as a kind of magical, free place. An alternative to the old systems of power. It was a vision that would come to dominate the internet over the next 20 years.

But two young hackers in New York thought that Barlow was describing a fantasy world, that his vision bore no relationship at all to what was really emerging online. They were cult figures on the early online scene and their fans followed and recorded them. They called themselves Phiber Optik and Acid Phreak and they spent their time exploring and breaking in to giant computer networks that they knew were the hard realities of modern digital power.

In a notorious public debate online, the two hackers attacked Barlow. What infuriated them most, was Barlow's insistence that there was no hierarchy, or, controlling powers in the new cyber world. The hackers set out to demonstrate that he was wrong.

Acid Phreak hacked into the computers of a giant corporation called TRW. TRW had originally built the systems that ran the Cold War for the US military. They had helped create the delicate balance of terror.

Now, TRW had adapted their computers to run a new system, that of credit and debt. Their computers gathered up the credit data of millions of Americans and were being used by the banks to decide individuals’ credit ratings. The hackers broke into the TRW network, stole Barlow’s credit history and published it online. The hackers were demonstrating the growing power of finance. How the companies that ran the new systems of credit knew more and more about you, and, increasingly, used that information to control your destiny.

Today, the US deep state becomes more powerful than ever. It will be able to do what corporations and hackers did, combined, almost twenty years ago.

But it's even worse: its mechanisms will be able to collect any kind of data, any time, without being prosecuted by any court. If you still believe that Democracy is not dead in the US empire then you are suffering heavily from some kind of illusion ...

Πιθανές επιχειρήσεις προβοκάτσιας εναντίον της Κίνας τους επόμενους μήνες


Πριν από λίγες μέρες, το ανεξάρτητο ειδησεογραφικό δίκτυο NewsBud ανέβασε ένα βίντεο ως έκτακτη είδηση, υποστηρίζοντας ότι η CIA σχεδιάζει επιχειρήσεις προβοκάτσιας (false flag operations) τους επόμενους μήνες εντός Κινεζικού εδάφους.

Η ιδρυτής και αρχισυντάκτης του δικτύου Σιμπέλ Έντμοντς, επικαλούμενη πληροφορίες από προσεκτικά επιλεγμένες πηγές, δίνει εντυπωσιακές λεπτομέρειες για τη διαδικασία και εμπλέκει το δίκτυο του Τούρκου πρώην ιμάμη, Φετουλάχ Γκιουλέν. Αναφέρεται μεταξύ άλλων:

Το δίκτυο του ριζοσπάστη κληρικού Φετουλάχ Γκιουλέν, το οποίο δρα για λογαριασμό της CIA στα πλαίσια των επιχειρήσεων προβοκάτσιας με την ονομασία Gladio B [σύμφωνα με την Έντμοντς], έχει δώσει εντολή σε υψηλόβαθμα στελέχη του στην Αλβανία, Βουλγαρία, Βοσνία και Λεττονία, να αναλάβουν δράση.

Τα στελέχη αυτά έχουν λάβει εντολή να δίνουν αναφορές στις Αμερικανικές πρεσβείες και τα προξενεία στις χώρες αυτές προκειμένου να λάβουν Αμερικανικές βίζες που έχουν ήδη εγκριθεί, ώστε να εγκατασταθούν προσωρινά στις ΗΠΑ.

Με την εγκατάστασή τους στις ΗΠΑ πρόκειται να παντρευτούν προεπιλεγμένες γυναίκες Κινεζικής υπηκοότητας, προκειμένου να αποκτήσουν θεωρήσεις από την Κινεζική πρεσβεία και όλα τα προξενεία. Στη συνέχεια και όσο το δυνατόν συντομότερα, θα μετεγκατασταθούν στην Κίνα και θα περιμένουν περαιτέρω οδηγίες για μια σειρά επικείμενων τρομοκρατικών επιχειρήσεων στην ηπειρωτική Κίνα.

Τα συγκεκριμένα επιχειρησιακά στελέχη θα δράσουν ως πράκτορες ενεργειών προβοκάτσιας, προκειμένου να προκαλέσουν περιστατικά βίας και τρομοκρατίας που θα αποδοθούν στους Ουιγούρους, μια [Τουρκογενής] εθνική μειονότητα της Κινεζικής επαρχίας Σιντσιάνγκ [στα βορειοδυτικά της χώρας]. Ο στόχος είναι να αναγκαστεί η Κινεζική κυβέρνηση να απαντήσει με βία.

Κατά τη διάρκεια των προηγούμενων εβδομάδων, η CIA έδωσε εντολές σε μέσα ενημέρωσης όπως το Radio Free Asia, να κλιμακώσουν τις μεταδόσεις τους αναφορικά με την επαρχία Σιντσιάνγκ και την αποκαλούμενη παραβίαση των ανθρωπίνων δικαιωμάτων. Επιπλέον, έχει ζητηθεί από συγκεκριμένους παραγωγούς, υποστηριζόμενους από τη CIA, να σκηνοθετήσουν ντοκιμαντέρ που θα εστιάζουν και θα μεγεθύνουν την παραβίαση των δικαιωμάτων των Ουιγούρων από την Κίνα.

Σύμφωνα με πηγή του Newsbud, οι συνεχιζόμενες επιχειρήσεις προβοκάτσιας θα ξεκινήσουν μέσα στους επόμενους τρεις με έξι μήνες στην ηπειρωτική Κίνα.


Όπως αναφέρεται σε άρθρο του journal-neo.org, κατά τη διάρκεια της δεκαετίας του '90 το δίκτυο του Γκιουλέν, εκπροσωπώντας το πολιτικό Ισλάμ, είχε επεκταθεί από τον Καύκασο έως την Κεντρική Ασία και την Κινεζική επαρχία Σιντσιάνγκ με σκοπό να αποσταθεροποιήσει τις Ρωσικές και Κινεζικές σφαίρες επιρροής στην ευρύτερη περιοχή, σύμφωνα με ορισμένους αναλυτές.

Η οργάνωση του Γκιουλέν είχε ενεργό ρόλο στην αποσταθεροποίηση της πρώην Σοβιετικής Ένωσης και στην κατάρρευση της το 1991, όταν οι Σοβιετικές Δημοκρατίες της Κεντρικής Ασίας, με έντονο το Μουσουλμανικό στοιχείο, κηρύξαν την ανεξαρτησία τους από τη Μόσχα. Πρώην υψηλόβαθμο στέλεχος του FBI είχε χαρακτηρίσει τον Γκιουλέν ως ένα από τα κεντρικά πρόσωπα των επιχειρήσεων της CIA στην Κεντρική Ασία και τον Καύκασο.

Επίσης, ένα εσωτερικό έγγραφο του Stratfor, από το 2010, μέσω WikiLeaks, περιγράφει με εντυπωσιακές λεπτομέρειες τον τρόπο με τον οποίο το δίκτυο Γκιουλέν στρατολογεί τα στελέχη του και τα τοποθετεί σε καίριες θέσεις στο στρατό, την αστυνομία, τη δικαστική εξουσία, τα ΜΜΕ, κ.λ.π., ενώ κάνει λόγο για οργάνωση που μοιάζει πολύ με μια επαγγελματική υπηρεσία πληροφοριών. Χαρακτηρίζει επίσης τη χρηματοδότηση του δικτύου Γκιουλέν ως 'αδιαφανή'.

Υπενθυμίζεται ότι η Σιμπέλ Έντμοντς υπήρξε πρώην μεταφράστρια του FBI και ανακάλυψε ότι μια σειρά ντοκουμέντα και υποκλοπές που είχε στην διάθεση της η υπηρεσία της πριν την 11η του Σεπτέμβρη, δεν είχαν συνειδητά μεταφρασθεί. Με βάση τις πληροφορίες αυτές η κυβέρνηση θα έπρεπε να κηρύξει συναγερμό από την άνοιξη του 2001. Παρά τις απειλές που δέχθηκε από τους ανωτέρους της, η Έντμοντς ζήτησε να ερευνηθεί η υπόθεση με αποτέλεσμα να απολυθεί από το FBI. Μετά από παρέμβαση του υπουργού Δικαιοσύνης όλες αυτές οι πληροφορίες θεωρούνται σήμερα κρατικά απόρρητα και τα δικαστήρια θέλουν να απαγορεύσουν στην Εντμοντς να αναφέρεται στην υπόθεση.

Rep. Gabbard speaks truth to power about the real reason Korea has nukes

by Dave Lindorff

We already knew that Tulsi Gabbard was courageous, when the Democratic congresswoman from Hawaii resigned from her position as vice chair of the Democratic National Committee in disgust during the primary season in 2016, declaring publicly what we now know to have been true — that the DNC was manipulating the primaries to favor Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders — was courageous. Now as basically the only member of Congress with the guts to call out the US as the cause of our current knife-edge threat of a nuclear war, she’s demonstrated her courage again.

Gabbard, interviewed on ABC News, declared unambiguously that the reason that North Korea has worked so diligently to develop nuclear weapons and missiles capable of delivering them to the US is that the United States over several decades and under a number of presidents, has had a policy of “regime change,” and a history of violently attempting to overthrow governments that it doesn’t like. As she put it in an interview over the weekend with ABC news host George Stephanopolos, “Our country’s history of regime-change wars has led countries like North Korea to develop and hold on to these nuclear weapons because they see it as their only deterrent against regime change.

Rep. Gabbard, who has been calling for the US to negotiate directly “and without pre-conditions” with North Korea to resolve the crisis, says the US also needs to recognize the reality that North Korea already has nuclear weapons and is not going to give them up unless it feels secure from US attack.

She is firm in saying that the US history of overthrowing Libyan leader Muamar Gaddafi after first convincing him that if he dropped his efforts to develop a nuclear weapon they would not attempt to overthrow his government, and then invading and overthrowing him, and of invading and overthrowing Saddam Hussein after trumping up a fake claim that he was attempting to develop nuclear weapons, will make it all the harder to convince North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to agree to halt or scale back, much less eliminate his nuclear weapons and missile arsenal. She adds that President Trump’s current threat to cancel an agreement reached by his predecessor, President Barack Obama and the leaders of Iran to terminate their nuclear fuel enrichment program in return for the US dropping sanctions on that country will also undermine any future efforts by the US to reach negotiated agreements on weapons and nuclear disarmament with Kim and any other countries that might seek to go nuclear.

It was all a little more than Stephanopolos, once a press spokesman for the administration of President Bill Clinton, who asked her, feigning incredulity, “Just to be clear, are you saying that Kim Jong-un’s nuclear arsenal is our fault?

That’s the point in an interview where your typical American pol would backpedal like mad to defend the sanctity of American exceptionalism, but Gabbard remained as forthright and direct as her analysis was correct, replying, “What I’m saying is the Democratic and Republican administrations for decades, going back over 20 years, failed to recognize the seriousness of this threat, failed to remove it, and we know that North Korea has these nuclear weapons because they see how the US in Libya, for example, guaranteed Gaddafi ‘We’re not going to go after you. You should get rid of your nuclear weapons.’ He did, and then we went ahead and led an attack that toppled Gaddafi.

Of course Rep. Gabbard is correct. A country that acts unilaterally, violating international law by overthrowing the governments of sovereign nations and that lies about its intentions when negotiating, is a country that will never be able again to negotiate to solve international problems. It will only have force remaining as a tool (and we’ve seen in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria how costly and ineffective a tool US force is these days). But as Gabbard also says, pointing to the chaos and panic that ensued when Hawaiians were given what appeared to be an alert about an actual nuclear missile attack on the islands by North Korea, when dealing with a nuclear power — even one as small as North Korea — force is simply not an option. There is only negotiation. And because nuclear weapons are so destructive, the size and power of the parties is irrelevant in such negotiations — it is inevitably a negotiation between equals.

Brava for this singularly courageous and outspoken member of Congress! Once again she has proven that she stands head and shoulders above her colleagues, Republican and Democrat, in the Capitol, just as she did when she quit the DNC and outed it for its perfidy in stealing the primaries for Hillary Clinton.

This Samoan American, elected to the House in 2013 from Hawaii, also, by the way, has been courageously calling for the US to “get out of Syria,” where she correctly notes it has been supporting Al Qaeda-linked terrorist groups — another position that puts her at odds with almost all of her congressional colleagues who are afraid to challenge US militarism. At the same time, she also happens to be a major in the US Army, a member of the Hawaiian National Guard, and is a member of the House Armed Services Committee. She served a tour in Iraq in 2006 and volunteered for a second tour in the Middle East in 2009, again making her a standout among all the chicken hawks of both parties in Congress and the White House.

As far as I’m concerned, Gabbard, not Opra, is the person Democrats should be talking about as the ideal candidate for 2020 to give Trump the boot.
