You Can't Make This Up: Kerry and Saudi Prince Pledge to Fight Extremism After Orlando Shooting

Here is further proof that US foreign policy fact is stranger than fiction: one day after the Orlando shooting where some 50 patrons of a homosexual bar were gunned down, US Secretary of State John Kerry sat down to dinner with with Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Washington, D.C. and, according to the State Department, "discussed this weekend's shooting in Orlando and expressed their shared commitment to continue their cooperation in combatting the spread of violent extremism, both regionally and internationally."

No, There Are Not Hundreds of Mass Shootings Each Year in America

On the heels of the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida early Sunday morning, the media reports are coming out again of there being hundreds of mass shootings a year in America. For example, we have this headline at Vox: “After Sandy Hook we said never again. And then we let 998 mass shootings happen.” But, the truth is that the number of mass shootings in America is much, much less.

That 998 number from Vox amounts to about 23 mass shootings a month — a number that seems ridiculous. Indeed, it is ridiculous.

Kucinich: Cowardly US Leaders Push Endless Cycle of War

There is a chilling account in today's Washington Post entitled, "A desperate woman’s email from Iraq reveals the high toll of Obama’s low-cost wars," detailing the civilian casualties caused by the US government in its pursuit from high altitudes of enemy combatants on the ground in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen.

Susan Rice Assures Israel of ‘Largest Military Aid Package in American History’

While her speech today at the American Jewish Committee Global Forum included some vague criticism of ongoing Israeli settlement expansion, as usual that will have no impact on US policy, as National Security Adviser Susan Rice centered the speech on pledges of a record military aid package being agreed to soon.

The aid package, which Rice reiterated would be the “single largest military assistance package – with any country – in American history,” is expected to be between $37.5 and $40 billion over the next decade, which Rice said proved increasing aid to Israel isn’t a partisan issue in the US, but “an enduring American interest.”

Obama Hands Corrupt Ukraine Another Billion US Dollars

One of the downsides of the US "regime change" business is that when you break it, you often have to buy it. It's all fun and games when you wander through the streets of Kiev with a bag of cookies encouraging the people to overthrow their government, or when you appear on stage before a riotous mob and alongside avowed national-socialists violently overthrowing a democratically-elected government.

What gets messy is when you get your way, the old government is overthrown, your "guys" seize power, and it turns out corruption and economic mismanagement are worse than before the US-backed "liberation."

Washington to Moscow: Stop Targeting al-Qaeda in Syria - You'll Kill Our Moderates!

The Associated Press is reporting this afternoon that the Obama Administration has requested that the Russians cease and desist from bombing al-Qaeda's Nusra Front in Syria because Washington's "moderate" rebels are fighting together with al-Qaeda in Syria and any attack on al-Qaeda could kill Washington's "moderates." 

The Obama Administration thus continues with the fiction that there are completely separate, vetted, moderate rebels who are dedicated to creating an inclusive, multi-cultural and multi-confessional, secular and democratic Syria as soon as both ISIS and the Assad government are defeated.
