  • Petraeus Memo Widens scope of US Military Covert Operations in ME
    • Just when did we become a nation that believes in the rule of law when we are dealing with real or imaginary foes in foreign policy. By 1820 we had the Monroe Doctrine, which basically stated that the Americas were our playground, and that other foreign States were to stay out; and from that moment onward we treated the Americas, especially Latin America and South America as our playground. We fabricated the supposed reasons for the Mexican American War, 1845; the Spanish American War 1898, Vietnam 1964, and a multitude of overthrows of Latin American and South American rulers; and as you have reminded us, the overthrow that resulted in the Shah of Iran's rule in Iran from 1958 to his death. Allende in Chile, the list can go on and on. Laws of nations don't apply to us, they never did.

  • Iran Threatens to Pull out of Nuclear Deal over new UN Sanctions
    • Unfortunately, Obama is not a progressive on anything; whether one is talking about restoring civil liberties, reining in executive power, or in forging a new path in foreign diplomacy. Actions speak louder than words, and Obama's actions since attaining office is basically a continuance of the Bush era power grabs and war mongering. Wishing he could have been a progressive force in the country and the world, is wishing for something that never existed to begin with. Basically, whether we are talking about foreign policy, or domestic policy, we have been had!

  • Netanyahu Commits to Colonizing East Jerusalem; First Palestinian Expelled under new Policy
    • Your blog is the only available source of real information about Israel and the entire Middle East. There are no other progressive bl0gs in the U.S.A. that will even mention Israel and the Palestinian problems in any way, let alone ever criticize Israel for its attempts to purge the West Bank of its Palestinian population. Our supposedly 'liberal' media is not touching what Israel is doing with a ten foot pole. Israel could deport the entire Palestinian population to Gaza (making Gaza the largest open air prison in the world) and the U.S. Congress would vote for a resolution praising Israel for its forbearance. One has to go to Al Jezeera English or the Guardian newspaper in the UK to hear what Israel is attempting to do in Palestine. Theoretical progressive blogs in the US won't discuss Israel in any way.
