Twenty-five-year-old Aaron Bushnell, an active-duty member of the United States Air Force, died on Sunday after setting himself on fire in front of the Israeli embassy in Washington DC as an act of protest against the slaughter in Gaza. Unfortunately, the act is noteworthy not because of the resulting suicide but for the underlying motivation Continue reading "Desperate for Peace: From Libya to Gaza" The post Desperate for Peace: From Libya to Gaza appeared first on Antiwar.com.

The reason why Japan and Russia have not settled the territorial dispute is Washington’s influence over Tokyo throught the US-Japan Status of Forces Agreement. Northern Territorial Day February 7th is Northern Territorial Day in Japan. There has been a territorial dispute between Japan and Russia over the Northern Territories. Thus, the day has been established Continue reading "Japan-Russia Relationship Is US-Russia Relationship" The post Japan-Russia Relationship Is US-Russia Relationship appeared first on Antiwar.com.

Reprinted from TomDispatch: Make no mistake, artificial Intelligence (AI) has already gone into battle in a big-time way. The Israeli military is using it in Gaza on a scale previously unknown in wartime. They’ve reportedly been employing an AI target-selection platform called (all too unnervingly) “the Gospel” to choose many of their bombing sites. According Continue reading "Emergent AI Behavior and Human Destiny" The post Emergent AI Behavior and Human Destiny appeared first on Antiwar.com.

In a recent CNN interview, the normally very confident US Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland sounded a little desperate. She was trying to make the case for Congress to pass another $61 billion dollars for the neocons’ proxy war project in Ukraine and she was throwing out the old slogans that the neocons use Continue reading "After Two Years, Neocons Desperate for More War in Ukraine" The post After Two Years, Neocons Desperate for More War in Ukraine appeared first on Antiwar.com.

Tucker Carlson began his interview of President Vladimir Putin with the words, “On February 24, 2022, you addressed your country in your nationwide address when the conflict in Ukraine started….”  Clearly the war in Ukraine was the motivation and central topic for the interview.  But precisely what Mr. Putin had to say about the Ukraine Continue reading "Putin Explains Why Russia Doesnt Pose a Threat to Europe" The post Putin Explains Why Russia Doesnt Pose a Threat to Europe appeared first on Antiwar.com.

For its victims, war is . . . yes, hell. For the rest of us – the onlooking and supportive patriots – war is an abstraction embedded in ignorance, a.k.a., public relations, served up for public consumption. At least that’s the way it’s supposed to be. The reality of war should never directly confront the Continue reading "The War on Gaza: Public Relations vs. Reality" The post The War on Gaza: Public Relations vs. Reality appeared first on Antiwar.com.

Two years since the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine – and fully 10 years since the war actually began –  the US political-media establishment seems as far away from learning any lessons from the failure of its post-Soviet Russia policy as it has ever been. The Biden administration’s policy toward Russia is simply the logical extension of that Continue reading "Post-Soviet Failures, Present-Day Realities" The post Post-Soviet Failures, Present-Day Realities appeared first on Antiwar.com.

The problem is not the absence of a Palestinian state, but Zionism itself. What is the use of a Palestinian state, if Zionism, as a racist, exclusivist ideology continues to define Israel, and impose that definition on the Palestinians? This ideology calls for racial purity of Jews in Palestine, of course, at the expense of Continue reading "Two-State Solution as a Distraction – TheProblem Is Zionism" The post Two-State Solution as a Distraction – The Problem Is Zionism appeared first on Antiwar.com.

There were probably many reasons why Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky fired Ukraine’s popular commander in chief of the armed forces, Valerii Zaluzhny, on February 8, but one of the biggest seems to have been a disagreement over how to go forward in a war that seemed to have overwhelmingly turned against them. Zelensky spoke of Continue reading "Selecting Syrsky: The Untold Half of the Zaluzhny Story" The post Selecting Syrsky: The Untold Half of the Zaluzhny Story appeared first on Antiwar.com.

A recurring defect in US foreign policy is a refusal by elites to concede when they made a serious policy mistake.  This is not a new problem, but it has grown decidedly worse in the past few decades.  It characterized the intervention in Vietnam years after it should have become evident that Washington’s approach was Continue reading "Refusing To Admit US Foreign Policy Blunders" The post Refusing To Admit US Foreign Policy Blunders appeared first on Antiwar.com.

As we mark two full years since Russia invaded Ukraine, Ukrainian government forces have withdrawn from Avdiivka, a town they first captured from the self-declared Donetsk Peoples Republic (DPR) in July 2014. Situated only 10 miles from Donetsk city, Avdiivka gave Ukrainian government forces a base from which their artillery bombarded Donetsk for nearly ten Continue reading "After Two Years of War in Ukraine, Its Time for Peace" The post After Two Years of War in Ukraine, Its Time for Peace appeared first on Antiwar.com.

Too bad Joe Biden was not taught this useful Presbyterian virtue.

The President of the United States only knows what his intelligence community tells him. After the January attack on a U.S. military facility in Jordan, American intelligence assessed that Iran does not fully control its proxy groups and that it is not commanding the attacks. The Pentagon, though, said “we know Iran is behind it,” Continue reading "Biden Knows Putin Killed Alexei Navalny" The post Biden Knows Putin Killed Alexei Navalny appeared first on Antiwar.com.

Many decades ago in Chicago, my favorite of several part-time student jobs was operating the “old-style” telephone switchboard at a small hospital called Forkosh Memorial. The console of coils and plugs included a mirror so operators could keep an eye on the hospital entrance, which on weekends and evenings was also monitored by an elderly, Continue reading "Israel Is Assaulting Hospitals in Gaza with Full US.

Pakistan just held an election; Venezuela is about to. Both incumbent governments have banned the leading opposition figure from competing. The United States sanctioned one and was silent on the other. What was the difference? Not international law or responsible leadership, both of which require a consistent application of laws and a consistent response. The Continue reading "Washington, Pro-Democracy?

Its operational objectives are whatever the CIA or the President of the United States defines to be in the U.S. interest at a given time, irrespective of international law or U.S. law. Its methods are secretive and duplicitous. Its Continue reading "How the CIA Destabilizes the World" The post How the CIA Destabilizes the World appeared first on Antiwar.com.
