Did 'Non-Interventionists' Drink the 'Bomb Iraq' Kool-Aid? -- Daniel McAdams on Tom Woods Show

Why are so many of those who call themselves "non-interventionist" suddenly jumping on the "bomb Iraq" bandwagon with the latest dose of US government propaganda about the critical need to "save the Kurds"? Do people really believe the US government is telling the truth this time and, more importantly, that bombs will solve the problem? 

How strange that humanitarian catastrophes of a much larger scale are taking place currently in Syria, Ukraine, Gaza, and elsewhere and the US government is totally silent or even hostile to those who seek to help! Not to mention the half-million Christians already cleansed from Iraq under US occupation. Might it have something to do with oilIsraelNeocons striking back? Yes, yes, and yes!

US Sends Humanitarian Bombs to Iraq as it Warns Russia Against Humanitarian Aid to Ukraine

The US administration began bombing Iraq today, with hopes that the disaster created by the 2003 Iraq War II could be rectified by starting Iraq War III. The pretext was to rescue a religious minority trapped by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) fighters. It was called a “humanitarian” intervention.

The ISIS menace is one created in Washington through the much-vaunted 2007 “Arab Awakening” in Iraq – where, as Justin Raimondo points out, the US was “arming, training, and bribing the very folks who are now welcoming ISIS with open arms.” ISIS has been significantly strengthened over the past three years by the US program to arm and back Islamist insurgents fighting to overthrow the secular government in Syria. Without US support for the rebels in Syria, ISIS would not be overrunning Iraq right now.

Ukraine Antiwar Movement Grows

The Ukrainian government is desperate for more men on the eastern front to fight the separatists. The Ukrainian president, Poroshenko, has announced yet a third round of general military mobilization, and draft orders are being delivered across Ukraine. Scores more young men from as far off as the Romanian border face conscription into the military and being sent to fight fellow Ukrainians in the east.

Cash-strapped Ukraine is burning through $6 million per day as it enters its fifth month of attacks on separatist provinces. The government in Kiev announced late last month that it would spend an additional nearly one billion dollars on its military assault, while admitting that the treasury was totally empty. To make up some of the difference, the government announced that it was sharply reducing social services and would also introduce a 1.5 percent additional "war tax" on workers.

US Grants Israel Emergency Access to Billion Dollar US Weapons Cache


Just hours
 after the Israeli government killed scores of Palestinians shopping at a marketplace and sheltering from the relentless attack on Gaza in a UN school, the US government gave the green light for Israel to access the "War Reserves Stock Allies-Israel (WRSA-I)," a one billion dollar US cache of weapons maintained on Israeli soil.

This US gift would allow the Israeli regime to replenish the 120mm mortar rounds and 40mm grenades of the type used to commit the attack on the civilian population of Gaza.

Another One-Sided Israel Vote Scheduled Today In Congress

Gazahell

It has been only a few days since Congress re-affirmed its support for the Israeli government's assault on Gaza, in which nearly 1,500 Palestinians have been killed. 

In this ongoing operation, some three out of four Palestinians killed have been civilians. The infrastructure has been decimated. Gaza's only power generation plant has been destroyed by Israel, meaning life is about to get that much more hellish for innocent civilians.

Nevertheless, today the House will take up another one-sided, pro-Israel resolution. This one will be Florida Republican Ileana Ros-Lehtinen's H Con Res 107, which exonerates Israel from blame over the indiscriminate bombing of Gaza by claiming the civilians were killed because they were being used as "human shields" by Hamas.

Fixing Facts Around The Policy: Is the US Government Manipulating Social Media?

The US government and in particular the State Department have come under some scrutiny — and even been subject to some ridicule — over increasing reliance on "social media" as evidence to back up US foreign policy positions or conclusions about international events. Many find it shocking that a government which spends some $100 billion on a vast and worldwide intelligence network would really pore over YouTube and Twitter to present user-uploaded items as if finished intelligence products.

Most recently, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf yesterday presented the US government's case for Russian involvement in the apparent downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH-17 over Ukraine based on "social media" and "common sense." She also cited unspecific "other information" that the government would not share, but the crux of the case for such a significant conclusion with almost incalculable implications was made by referencing "Tweets" and other, often anonymous, personal communications.

We Made It To A Million!

This week marked a milestone for the Ron Paul Institute's Facebook page. For the first time in our short 15 months of existence we chalked up one million people reached over a one week period! 

This is most certainly due to the several crises in the world today, specifically Ukraine and Gaza. While we are dismayed by the loss of life in these tragedies, we are also very pleased to note that when you see the media in lockstep with the government to provide a united front of propaganda, people from all over turn to the Ron Paul Institute to challenge government lies.

Tired of US Spying, Germany? Here's Some Good Advice...

Germany is reeling from ongoing revelations about the extent of the US spying operation against the country, as at least two spies have been uncovered burrowed into German intelligence, the BND. The German government has responded by asking the CIA station chief in Berlin to leave the country. Animosity toward the US government is on the increase among German politicians, who foolishly believed they had a special relationship with the US government that precluded such hostile activities.
