The Fake News About Iran & the Taliban Aims to Achieve Three Strategic Objectives – Global Research

If At First You Don’t Succeed, Try, Try Again! Just like the New York Times’ fake news earlier this summer about Russia allegedly paying bounties to the Taliban to kill US troops, CNN’s latest variant of this narrative about Iran supposedly doing the same should also be met with skepticism. The Islamic Republic is the subject of this particularContinue reading “The Fake News About Iran & the Taliban Aims to Achieve Three Strategic Objectives – Global Research”

Iran Paid Taliban to Kill US Troops? – Stephen Lendman

When repeated ad nauseam, Big Lies take on a life of their own. … In July, the NYT falsely claimed that “Russia secretly offered (the Taliban) bounties to kill US troops” in Afghanistan. The Pentagon denied the claim. So did the NSA, saying it had no corroborating intelligence that suggests it. The CIA declined toContinue reading “Iran Paid Taliban to Kill US Troops? – Stephen Lendman”

Russian Bounties to Taliban Hoax: Another Big Lie That Won’t Die – Stephen Lendman

By imperial US standards and its press agent media, nations unwilling to sacrifice their sovereign rights to its interests are considered fair game for bashing with an onslaught of Big Lies and deception. The propaganda report published by the Times that “Russia secretly offered (the Taliban) bounties to kill US troops” in Afghanistan (sic) wasContinue reading “Russian Bounties to Taliban Hoax: Another Big Lie That Won’t Die – Stephen Lendman”

Palestinians Will Not Live in Peace until the Wahhabi Royal Family Is Gone – American Herald Tribune

5 million Palestinians live under brutal ‘Israeli’ military occupation, without any human or civil rights. The call to “Free Palestine” is now over 70 years old, and the world and its leaders sit idly by without action.  Palestine is the only country on earth occupied by a foreign government.  The obstacle to a peaceful solution for bothContinue reading “Palestinians Will Not Live in Peace until the Wahhabi Royal Family Is Gone – American Herald Tribune”

As Long As Mass Media Propaganda Exists, Democracy Is A Sham – Ron Paul Institute

This latest poll is a perfect example of how the plutocrat-owned media manipulate public opinion in the interest of establishment agendas with brazen propaganda campaigns, but it is just the most recent example. Over and over and over again we see public perception of what’s going on distorted by lies inserted into their minds by the corporateContinue reading “As Long As Mass Media Propaganda Exists, Democracy Is A Sham – Ron Paul Institute”

Russia-Baiting Is the Only Game in Town – Unz Review

Other reliably Democratic Party leaning news outlets, to include CNN, MSNBC and The Washington Post all jumped on the bounty story, adding details from their presumably inexhaustible supply of anonymous sources. As Scott Horton observed the media was reporting a “fact” that there was a rumor. Inevitably the Democratic Party leadership abandoned its Ghanaian kente clothContinue reading “Russia-Baiting Is the Only Game in Town – Unz Review”

Lee Camp: How the Media Used the Bounty Scandal to Stop the ‘Threat’ of Peace in Afghanistan – Mint Press News

I know four things for sure in life. Paper beats rock. Rock beats scissors. Scissors beat paper. And propaganda beats peace. All one has to do is look at a calendar. Trump has essentially threatened to create peace or pull U.S. troops out of a war zone in three countries – North Korea, Afghanistan, andContinue reading “Lee Camp: How the Media Used the Bounty Scandal to Stop the ‘Threat’ of Peace in Afghanistan – Mint Press News”

NYT Walks Back From its Fake News About Russia – Stephen Lendman

Most everything the Times claims about nations on the US target list for regime change is suspect at best, a gross perversion of reality at worst — state-approved propaganda over truth and full disclosure. The Times’ claim about Russia offering bounties to kill US forces in Afghanistan ranks with the worst of its propaganda rubbishContinue reading “NYT Walks Back From its Fake News About Russia – Stephen Lendman”

The Truth About Russian-Taliban Ties Is as Intriguing as the Fake News About Them – Global Research

Russia doesn’t exploit the Taliban as a proxy for killing Americans, but seeks to nurture equally close relations with it along the lines of the ones that it presently enjoys with Pakistan. Moscow seems to believe that the group will likely return to power one of these days (ideally through peaceful means), so it makesContinue reading “The Truth About Russian-Taliban Ties Is as Intriguing as the Fake News About Them – Global Research”

The Fake News About Russia and the Taliban Aims to Achieve Three Strategic Objectives – Global Research

The Mainstream Media is in a tizzy after the New York Times (NYT) published a fake news provocation alleging that Russia solicited the Taliban to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan. More specifically, they claim that its military intelligence wing, GRU, was responsible for the operation. The Western public is already preconditioned into associating those three letters withContinue reading “The Fake News About Russia and the Taliban Aims to Achieve Three Strategic Objectives – Global Research”

New York Times takes anti-Russian hysteria to new level with report on Russian ‘bounty’ for US troops in Afghanistan – Ron Paul Institute

The New York Times published an article claiming that Russia was paying out monetary bounties to the Taliban to kill US troops in Afghanistan. There’s just one problem — none of what they reported was true. … For its part, the Russian government has vociferously denied the allegations, noting that the report “clearly demonstrates low intellectual abilitiesContinue reading “New York Times takes anti-Russian hysteria to new level with report on Russian ‘bounty’ for US troops in Afghanistan – Ron Paul Institute”

NYT Propaganda Sinks to New Low – Stephen Lendman

The NYT isn’t and never was “the newspaper of record” except in its own mind. It’s a national disgrace, a lying machine, an instrument of state-approved propaganda, notably on geopolitical issues. It features US intelligence community press releases — rubbish masquerading as “all the news that’s fit to print” that’s unfit to read. The lateContinue reading “NYT Propaganda Sinks to New Low – Stephen Lendman”

What in the World is Happening? – James Corbett

OK, I get it. You’re sick of hearing about it. “There must be something else happening in the world,” I hear you saying. Well, you’re in luck! I did some digging and it turns out there are other things happening in the world, after all! Things that have nothing to do with viruses or masks or vaccines or contact tracers.Continue reading “What in the World is Happening? – James Corbett”

How the New US-Afghanistan Peace Deal Rekindled a “Business Friendly Taliban” – Mint Press News

not unlike the much-criticized Israel-Palestine “peace” deal that was recently released by the Trump administration, there is more to the U.S.-Taliban “peace” deal than meets the eye. Indeed, while the deal will reduce and perhaps eventually even end the U.S.’ official military presence in Afghanistan, there is little indication that it will end the bloodshedContinue reading “How the New US-Afghanistan Peace Deal Rekindled a “Business Friendly Taliban” – Mint Press News”

Crimes in Afghanistan: Fatou Bensouda’s Investigative Mission – Global Research

It seemed an unlikely prospect.  The International Criminal Court has tended to find itself accused of chasing up the inhumane rogues of Africa rather than those from any other continent.  It has also been accused of having an overly burdensome machinery and lethargy more caught up with procedure than substance.  Critics fearing a behemoth snatching soldiersContinue reading “Crimes in Afghanistan: Fatou Bensouda’s Investigative Mission – Global Research”

International Court Approves Probe of US War Crimes in Afghanistan – Global Research

The concern in Washington is not for the troops, but rather that the real authors of the crimes in Afghanistan will someday be held to account: the presidents and their cabinets along with the top generals, the leading politicians of both major parties, the big business interests that supported the war and the media punditsContinue reading “International Court Approves Probe of US War Crimes in Afghanistan – Global Research”

Afghanistan: Western Rhetoric and Little Reality – NEO

Pre the 2001 United States invasion the Taliban government had virtually eliminated the poppy crops that are the source of the crude heroin. After the United States occupation, production of heroin radically increased. The western media have been reluctant to even note this obvious point. They are equally reluctant to note the fact that theContinue reading “Afghanistan: Western Rhetoric and Little Reality – NEO”

Ending the Myth that Trump Is Ending the Wars – Global Research

Ending them will not be easy. Too many powerful interests — from weapons manufacturers to politicians — are too invested. But ending the wars begins with rejecting the idea that real opposition will come from inside the White House. https://www.globalresearch.ca/ending-myth-trump-ending-wars/5705651

Trump Regime’s Other Phony Deal of the Century Unravelling – Stephen Lendman

The Trump regime’s so-called deal with the Taliban is intended to facilitate future talks with the US and its puppet regime in Kabul.  It has nothing to do with assuring peace and stability to the war-torn country, nothing to do with ending US occupation — nothing to do with giving Afghanistan back to the Afghans,Continue reading “Trump Regime’s Other Phony Deal of the Century Unravelling – Stephen Lendman”

NYT Afghan War Propaganda – Stephen Lendman

Throughout over 18 years of US aggression in Afghanistan since October 2001, the NYT consistently misreported about the conflict. Like other establishment media, the Times glorifies wars of aggression, falsely pretending they’re liberating struggles — far from it. https://stephenlendman.org/2020/03/nyt-afghan-war-propaganda/
