The Chilean 9/11: a forgotten tale — Farooq Yousaf


The Faultlines - By Farooq Yousaf:

"Thinking of 9/11, scenes of chaos in 2001 — of the Twin Towers plane crashes, the Pentagon crash and havoc in the US — come to our minds, but unfortunately, the world has forgotten another important event in world history that not only shook Chile but also a major part of South America.
"It was the same date, September 11, in 1973 that the Chilean President, Salvador Allende, was overthrown by an army general, Augusto Pinochet, with the presidential palace bombarded on Pinochet’s orders. Allende died resisting Pinochet’s men and Chile, along with five other South American states, entered into a phase of tyranny and oppression."

Dagestan: ’Syria comes to Russia...’


Voltaire Network - by F. William Engdahl

"The assassination of the most respected Sufi religious leader in Dagestan, Russia’s volatile Caucasus, comes as Salafist jihadists in Libya murder a US Ambassador who was actually a key player in ousting Gaddafi and bringing the Salafist Muslim Brotherhood and Jihadists into power. Throughout the entire Islamic world today, a wave of hate is being unleashed in the name of Islamic fundamentalism that could bring a new world war. This is the consequence of the Greater Middle East Project put in play in 2010 and earlier by circles in Washington, London and Tel Aviv."

Greater Middle East: 33 Years Of US Backing Terrorism, Regime Change


Stop NATO, RT:

"The so-called Arab Spring has come full circle: newly liberated Libya, which just passed through a brutal civil war that pitted pro-Gaddafi forces against a Western-backed opposition, is responsible for the death of an envoy whose country contributed to the Libyan ‘liberation.’
"Putin stressed…that the violence that we are now witnessing has its roots back in 1979 when the United States trained rebels to fight against Soviet troops in Afghanistan. Those fighters, under the leadership of Osama bin Laden, went on to become al-Qaeda, the terrorist organization that Russia warned made up part of the Libyan opposition."

Andrew Bacevich's "Washington Rules: America's Path to Permanent War"

Washington’s double-take at the Non-Aligned Movement revival

By Thierry Meyssan:
"The opening of the Summit was the occasion for Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to publicly give advice to the United states: free yourself of Israeli influence, defend your own interests and cease discrediting yourself by your support for Israeli crimes. Like an echo, General Martin Dempsey, head of the Joint Chiefs, responded to him several hours later during a press conference in London. Denouncing as impossible Israel’s proclaimed intentions to bomb Iranian nuclear sites, he announced that if Tel-Aviv went forward, he would hope that Washington would not be an accomplice to this crime. For the first time since the Suez expedition in 1956, a high U.S. official is warning that the U.S. will refuse to support future Zionist adventures.
"In announcing in this fashion a strategic change, Washington is registering this new state of affairs and acknowledging the reappearance on the international scene of Iran and the Non-Aligned Movement."

9/11, Bin Laden & the Tyranny of the Corporate Media


Global Research - by Prof. James F. Tracy:

"This essay originally appeared on September 21, 2001 in my Daily Iowan column, 'Firing Line'. The piece uses George Orwell’s 1984 as a basis to suggest how from the very beginning the corporate media played a central role in setting the stage for the prevalent Osama bin Laden-Al Qaeda myth, the related 'blowback' thesis vigorously embraced by the progressive-left community, and the assemblage of rearguard actions defending such perspectives and reflexively labeling all accounts conflicting with government pronouncements as 'conspiracy theories'.”

US Sponsored “Islamic Fundamentalism”: The Roots of the US, Wahhabi Alliance


Global Research - by Benjamin Schett:
"The alliance between the United States and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia helped spread the ideology of fundamentalist Sunni Islam all over the globe. The majority of its victims are not citizens of Western countries, but citizens of countries that U.S. elites consider a threat to their economic and geopolitical interests. Many victims of Sunni extremism (often called Wahhabism or Salafism[1]) are in fact Muslims (often with a secular leftist or nationalist political background), moderate Sunni or members of Shiʿite Islamic faith."

Perpetual War


Global Research - by John Scales Avery:
"Because the world spends roughly a trillion dollars each year on armaments, it follows that very many people make their living from war. This is the reason why it is correct to speak of war as a social, political and economic institution, and also one of the main reasons why war persists, although everyone realizes that it is the cause of much of the suffering of humanity."

John Avery received a B.Sc. in theoretical physics from MIT and an M.Sc. from the University of Chicago. He later studied theoretical chemistry at the University of London, and was awarded a Ph.D. there in 1965. He is now Lektor Emeritus, Associate Professor, at the Department of Chemistry, University of Copenhagen. Fellowships, memberships in societies: Since 1990 he has been the Contact Person in Denmark for Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs. In 1995, this group received the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts. He was the Member of the Danish Peace Commission of 1998. Technical Advisor, World Health Organization, Regional Office for Europe (1988- 1997). Chairman of the Danish Peace Academy, April 2004.

The Liberal Way to Run the World: “Improve” or We’ll Kill You


By John Pilger:
"What is the world’s most powerful and violent 'ism'? The question will summon the usual demons, such as Islamism, now that communism has left the stage. The answer, wrote Harold Pinter, is only 'superficially recorded, let alone documented, let alone acknowledged,' because only one ideology claims to be non-ideological, neither left nor right, the supreme way. This is liberalism."

Iran's NAM Presidency: What Now?


Fars News Agency:
"Despite the deceitful approach by Western media, or the prejudiced and lopsided statements by Western politicians about Iran's position in the international community, Iran's three-year presidency of the NAM is indeed a remarkable opportunity in the bid to reshape the global governance and make it more democratic."

Why America & Israel Are the Greatest Threats to Peace


By Noam Chomsky:

"Why then is Iran the greatest threat to world peace, as seen in official Western discourse? The primary reason is acknowledged by U.S. military and intelligence and their Israeli counterparts: Iran might deter the resort to force by the United States and Israel.
"Furthermore Iran must be punished for its 'successful defiance', which was Washington's charge against Cuba half a century ago, and still the driving force for the U.S. assault against Cuba that continues despite international condemnation."

Syria: "The Brahimi Plan" - by Thierry Meyssan


Voltaire Network:
"The Western press is saluting the audacity of Lakhdar Brahimi for having picked up the gauntlet by accepting to replace Kofi Annan as Special Representative of the Secretary Generals of both the United Nations and the Arab League in Syria. However, according to Thierry Meyssan, the truth of the matter is starkly different. Given the current failure of outright regime change in Damascus, this NATO confidence man has been entrusted with the task of unleashing all-out civil war in Syria."

NAM: breaking Western stranglehold of power


By Ismail Salami:

"A new world order is taking shape. In this new world order, imperialism starts to vanish and the idea of mounting military expeditions under the banner of combating terrorism or dictating western democracy soon evaporates. This idea may be a far cry from the reality but it is not an impossibility. It can be turned into a reality thanks to the power issuing from the collective efforts of all nations. This is exactly what the US-led West fears most and what the world needs most: a united nations will to fly in the face of the wrong and second the right."
