Is her Atlantic interview her second pro-war stumble that could derail her 2016 road to the White House the way her 2003 Iraq pro-war vote helped Obama defeat her…

In order for peace to ever occur between Israel and the Palestinians, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu needs to be weakened, United States President Barack Obama asserted.

Shame on you all. You represent nothing but the interests of the corrupt US whose actions are controlled by Zionism and it shows, every day.

In one of the largest mobilizations in solidarity with Palestine in the United States ever, tens of thousands of people from all across the country converged in Washington, D.C.

Having lost the propaganda battle over the doomed airliner, Washington seems intent on opening up a second front in the information war, alleging cross-border shelling by Russian forces. But such is American arrogance and deceit, this information war runs a very real risk of inciting a full-on shooting war between world powers.

Hypocrisy has never shown such an ugly, shameless face as that of America’s ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power-- in this age of genocide.

As there are a number of possible explanations, let’s keep open minds and resist Washington’s propaganda until facts and evidence are in.

America must soon shift our role from giving tacit consent to an invasion to becoming an active partner in a new, honest search for peace in the Middle East.

As Israel’s bombardment of Gaza continues, so has news coverage of the constant attack and mounting death toll.

Russia considers the latest package of sanctions against it issued by the US as revenge for the failure of Washington’s schemes in Ukraine and blackmail. Moscow reserves the right to retaliate.

From the American standpoint, the simplest and least expensive way, in both blood and treasure, to establish stability would be to allow for Iranian and Syrian intervention on behalf of the Maliki government--or another government that reflected the will of the Shiite majority.

What's the purpose of Site 911? I asked the Pentagon on Tuesday, and the Corps on Wednesday said that only an Israeli Defense Ministry spokesman could provide an answer.

“A liberal world order, like any world order, is something that is imposed, and as much as we in the West might wish it to be imposed by superior virtue, it is generally imposed by superior power” (“Superpowers Don't Get to Retire: What Our Tired Country Still Owes the World,” Robert Kagan, Brookings Institute. May 26, 2014).

No agents of Israel have ever been embarrassed by boasting of Israel’s power in the US, or by demanding loans and aid. The protestations of American diplomats at Israel’s aggrandizement and damage to US interests have embarrassed them, not the pro-Israel party, which has gone from strength to strength until quite recently.

Things got off to a rocky start in early 2009 when Netanyahu initially refused the United States' request for a settlement freeze. They got worse when Netanyahu sought to give Obama a "history lesson" in the Oval Office on the security challenges facing Israel; they plummeted further during the 2012 election when Bibi all but endorsed the president's Republican rival, Mitt Romney; and they took a major hit when Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon publicly disparaged Kerry.
