US Political Conventions: Scripted Theater Without Substance – Stephen Lendman

This year’s virtual format aside, Dem and GOP conventions are well-rehearsed, scripted Hollywood sound stage-like productions.

Both parties are two sides of the sameContinue reading “US Political Conventions: Scripted Theater Without Substance – Stephen Lendman”

What’s Missing from SC Debate Over Aid to Syrian Civilians – Stephen Lendman

For days, Security Council members have been debating how humanitarian aid should be delivered to civilians in the country’s northwest where it’s most needed.

Establishment Media Propaganda War on Syria – Stephen Lendman

Establishment media reports on what remains ongoing in war-torn Syria are some of the most abysmal in modern memory — bearing no relation to reality on the ground.
