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.

Ron Paul’s Advice at the Libertarian National Convention: Don’t Be Wishy-Washy

Ron Paul, whose forty-plus years in the political arena include a run for president as the Libertarian Party nominee in 1988, received at the party’s national convention last weekend a Hall of Liberty award for his achievement in advancing the libertarian movement.

Paul’s advice includes that they strive to be principled instead of wishy-washy.

Al-Qaeda Linked Leader Visits US - To Lobby US Government!

Most Americans would think that after 9/11 and the four trillion dollar, 15 year "war on terror" that followed, the US government might actually wish to prevent individuals from visiting the country who are affiliated with al-Qaeda. Sadly, they would be wrong.

The McClatchy News Service reports that Labib al Nahhas, an official in the al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamist fighting group Ahrar al Sham, was granted a visa to enter the US for a brief visit. 

In a recent State Department press briefing, one journalist questioned Department Spokesman Mark Toner about the purported visit. "Were US officials aware of this visit?" asked the journalist.
