The New Cold War and the Death of the Discourse

The truth is often ignored, at first, and when that becomes impossible, truth-tellers are often punished. As two incidents starkly reveal, this is certainly the case when it comes to the civil war in Ukraine and Washington’s unfolding cold war with Russia. The first illustration of our truth-telling principle occurred after the “Maidan revolution” had […]

No Justice, No Peace

These days I’m often reminded of this paragraph from what I think is Glenn Greenwald’s best book: “Those with political and financial clout are routinely allowed to break the law with no legal repercussions whatsoever. Often they need not even exploit their access to superior lawyers because they don’t see the inside of a courtroom […]

The War Party Gets "Trumped" On Syria: The Donald's Right, We Are Not The World's Policeman

War is the great clarifier. The Russian move to quash both ISIS and the US-backed jihadist movement aimed at overthrowing Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad has defined the lines of demarcation between the candidates for US President in both parties, and shown us what they are made of. The issue at hand: should the US impose […]

Role Reversal in the New Cold War: The Washington 'War Party' Is The New Aggressor And Its Far More Dangerous

This past weekend marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the reunification of Germany, an event that formalized the end of the cold war. The so-called “German Democratic Republic,” one of the most repressive of the Soviet-imposed regimes established in the wake of World War II, was no more. It imploded without a shot being fired. The […]

Thomas Woodrow Wilson Obama------Another Presidential Liar To The World

If there was any doubt that Washington has learned absolutely nothing since George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq, then President Obama’s address to the United Nations has confirmed the world’s worst fears. It was an oration that combined the most egregious lies with the wooly-minded “idealism” that has been such a destructive force in world […]

The Rape of Afghanistan

The rape of young boys in Afghanistan by our  “allies” is getting a lot of press attention these days, provoked by the revelation that US military personnel who tried to stop it are being disciplined for interfering. Two US officers apparently beat up one of our pet warlords, who insisted on keeping a boy chained […]

The Real Aggression In Ukraine-----The Kiev Dictatorship's Assault On Its Own People And The Press

The media narrative about Ukraine – that the “Maiden revolution” was a democratic European-values oriented revolt against a tyrannical Russian-controlled puppet – has always been  a fairytale, largely perpetrated by the Western media in complicity with the US State Department and the European Union. Yet now that same media is being forced to reexamine their […]

US Foreign Policy Goes Retro-----Why The War Party Is Reenacting Russophobia

Francis Fukuyama’s famous essay “The End of History” – often cited, less often actually read, and frequently misunderstood – is commonly thought to have been rendered irrelevant and proved wrong. After all, aren’t we perpetually at war – and didn’t 9/11 show that history, far from having ended, seems not to have noticed Fukuyama’s obituary […]

The Long Road From 9/11: A Rumination On The Relentless Neocon Campaign Of Fear And Lies

I heard it before I saw it: the horror in the voice of a TV anchor on the morning of September 11, 2001. As my father shook me awake – “Wake up, look at this!” – I shot straight up in my bed and beheld the scene unfolding on the television screen: a plane plowing […]

The Imperialism Of Washington's War Party------Enemy Of Constitutional Government And Domestic Liberty

Editorial Note: Justin Raimondo is on vacation: he’ll return on Friday, September 11. Until then, we’re running this 2004 piece by Raimondo, which does a fairly good job of summarizing Antiwar.com’s foreign policy stance – and which clearly stands the test of time. In the day-to-day business of tracking the War Party’s machinations, it’s easy […]
