Will the Death of U.S. Hegemony Lead to Peace—Or World War III?

Interview with Prof. Jefferey Sachs

Israel right now is absolutely radicalized—extremist. Israel is killing tens of thousands of people and I'm proud that our students are saying, "No! Don't do that." China is not an enemy. Russia is not an enemy. We don't need these wars. They don't make us safer. They don't make us more prosperous.

And the American people sense it. What is told to us are lies and the public is protesting. And to keep to the lies, the government is cracking down. That's where we are. It's extremely dangerous.

Structurally the US security establishment is fighting for its hegemony and it could end up creating a World War. The US has starkly divided the world because the US has said, "You're with us or you're against us." China is not out to run the world. It's not out to dominate the United States. It's not out to invade the US. It's not out to hinder the United States.

The BRICS countries want a means of settlement that isn't the US dollar. That's mainly because of the weaponization of the dollar by the United States. The second factor is that the dollar itself may become unstable for the reasons that we were speaking about. A third factor is that there is lots of technological change so different ways to make settlements. The current settlement system goes through banks but in the future, it will go through digital currencies probably Central Bank digital currencies.

The US, on the other hand, resents Russia for being big and powerful. The US has a completely neurotic fixation on China. Why we are slipping towards World War III is that America's self-image as a hegemon is completely inconsistent with the ground reality. We do what we want and we expect others to do what we want. Structurally, the US security establishment is fighting for its hegemony and it could end up creating a World War.

Islamic countries are ready for peace. The Saudis don't want war, UAE doesn't want war, Egypt doesn't want war, Jordan doesn't want war, and Lebanon doesn't want war, but they want Palestine not to live under apartheid rule, or worse under genocide, which is what's happening in Gaza right now.


Fear-Stricken Zelensky Drowns Ukraine In Blood

South Front (Editorial)

On May 20, Zelensky’s term of office expired. The presidential elections should have been held on March 31, but the current regime canceled them due to martial law. The Ukrainian parliament extends it every three months. No elections in Ukraine, neither parliamentary nor presidential, can be held during martial law (source).

The MSM and the Ukrainian media launched an information campaign justifying the preservation of power in the hands of Zelensky. One of the main broadcasting narratives pushes to convince the public that Zelensky’s support is so high that he simply has no competition.

Indeed, opposition parties are banned in the country, and all independent media and TV channels were closed long ago. On May 18, the new law strengthening military mobilization came into force. People are afraid to go out on the streets. Half of the population has no right to leave the country, those who try to illegally cross the border are shot, and the military kidnaps people en masse on the streets.


Genocide Joe

Walter Gelles

In the following poem, I'm trying to draw a connection between the Biden/Netanyahu genocide of Palestine and the US/NATO war against Russia via sacrificial proxy Ukraine. Among the many parallels:

1) Both wars were engineered by, or with full complicity of, the USA. 2) Both wars are kept going only because of US materiel and financial support. 3) Both are immoral and risk nuclear Armageddon. (The Israel/Palestine conflict is not really a "war", it's a one-sided mass slaughter based on the pretext of the October 7 false-flag attack that Israel allowed to happen.) 4) Resources and power underlie both conflicts. Israel wants to complete its ethnic cleansing, removal, and extermination of the Palestinians so the West can have access to the huge oil and gas reserves off the coast, while Israel may also build a canal bisecting Gaza. USA wants to topple Putin, carve up Russia, and gain access to its wealth, while also keeping Ukraine as America's central hub for money laundering (e.g. Biden crime family), plus sex and drug trafficking and US-run biological weapons labs on Russia's border. 5) If you're American, you and your children's children's children will be paying for this gargantuan waste through inflation and taxes. So where is the moral outrage and fight-back?

IMHO, an effective anti-war movement would include both the pro-Palestinian campus protests and encampments AND strong vocal/physical opposition to the US/NATO crime against Russia. Then the dirty, corrupt, globalist-directed, Mossad-owned politicians would be forced to relent. So far, there has been very little linkage between the two insane wars into a combustible viable opposition.


NATO Spreads Nuclear Weapons, Energy, and Risk

David Swanson

Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty declares that NATO members will assist another member if attacked by “taking action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force.” But the UN Charter does not say anywhere that warmaking is authorized for whoever jumps in on the appropriate side.

The North Atlantic Treaty’s authors may have been aware that they were on dubious legal ground because they went on twice to claim otherwise, first adding the words “Any such armed attack and all measures taken as a result thereof shall immediately be reported to the Security Council. Such measures shall be terminated when the Security Council has taken the measures necessary to restore and maintain international peace and security.” But shouldn’t the United Nations be the one to decide when it has taken necessary measures and when it has not?

The North Atlantic Treaty adds a second bit of sham obsequiousness with the words “This Treaty does not affect, and shall not be interpreted as affecting in any way the rights and obligations under the Charter of the Parties which are members of the United Nations, or the primary responsibility of the Security Council for the maintenance of international peace and security.” So the treaty that created NATO seeks to obscure the fact that it is, indeed, authorizing warmaking outside of the United Nations — as has now played out in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, and Libya.


Commitments That NATO Has Failed. Why A Major War Is Possible

Vasilis Kapoulas (Βασίλης Καπούλας)

17 Dec 2021: Russia calls on US to stop NATO eastward expansion in draft security treaty (Source)

Russia Releases Secret Documents: "Which Commitments NATO Has Failed - Why A Major War Is Possible". In a pivotal moment, the Kremlin released recently declassified secret documents concerning the NATO-Russia agreement after the fall of the USSR and the talks up to 2000. These documents were shown on the Russian RT TV. You can watch the clip below.

Moscow gives a clear impression that Ukraine will only be the beginning if NATO does not compromise on fundamental issues [and] there is no return to the status quo of 1990! It raises three basic issues that NATO did not respect: Its non-expansion, its non-interference in the post-Soviet space, and the reduction of the number of troops in Europe (withdrawal of American forces – anti-missile bases in Romania-Poland, etc.) The non-compliance with these three conditions justifies, for example, an attack on Finland or the Baltic countries. Why there; Because after Ukraine, NATO through the Baltic countries directly threatens Moscow, Saint Petersburg, and Kaliningrad. So it is a cause of World War III.

"Which agreements NATO did not keep:" Saskia Taylor reveals to RT: 💬 When you make promises, you have to keep them. Unless you are NATO, then a promise is just a few words strung together! These documents, mostly redactions, describe the optimism with which the fledgling Russian state sat down at the table with the West in the early 1990s. Top US and NATO figures have courted the Kremlin with talk of reducing nuclear arms, promoting peacekeeping missions, joining councils together, and welcoming Russia into a New Europe from the Urals to the Atlantic. Cooperation, inclusion, peace, partnership. It was the dawn of a New Era... By and large NATO and the West went wild in making empty promises during the collapse of the Soviet Union to gain access to Russia's vast natural wealth. They said it was needed to assuage Moscow's concerns. Let's be clear: We were told no NATO expansion, no involvement in the post-Soviet space, and fewer troops in Europe.


Israel’s War on Lebanon’s Trees

Bilal Nour Al-Deen

Lebanon has a deep cultural connection to its trees. Its ancient cedar tree, which dominates the forests of its northern highlands, holds great symbolic importance as a national emblem and is featured front and center on the country’s flag.

As with other countries around the world, the iconic, resilient cedar faces the growing threat of climate change.

But Lebanon’s woodland has come under an even more insidious threat in the past few months. Hundreds of acres of southern Lebanon’s lush greenery and vegetation – distinct from the northern cedar forests – have come under heavy, incendiary Israeli attacks, causing severe environmental and agricultural devastation to the region.

The occupation state’s use of white phosphorus bombs has dramatically impacted the lives of Lebanese residents, agricultural workers, and the south’s vital agricultural sector, which produces a significant portion of the country’s fruit, citrus, olives, and tobacco.


Canada introduces blood-curdling new ‘thought police’ law that would make even Stalin blush…

Revolver News (Editorial)

Canada To Imprison Anyone Who Has EVER Posted ‘Hate Speech’ Online

Canada has fallen. It’s become the North Korea of the West, and it’s getting worse every single day. This new bill they’ve introduced is the cherry on their tyrannical sundae. It’s called the Online Harms Bill C-63, and it would make even Stalin blush. As a matter of fact, tyrannical dictator Kim Jong-Un would look at this bill and feel an instant rush of communist inadequacy. With this new bill, Justin Trudeau is fueling those online rumors that his real father is actually communist dirtbag Fidel Castro.

This new bill is supposedly aimed at safeguarding the masses from online “hate speech,” and it’s a dictator’s dream come true. Naturally, the left is hailing it as a beacon of democracy—a term they seem to misunderstand more and more. The real shocker in this bill is the alarming retroactive aspect. Essentially, whatever you’ve said in the past can now be weaponized against you by today’s draconian standards. Historian Dr. Muriel Blaive has weighed in on this draconian law, labeling it outright “mad.” She points out how it literally spits in the face of all Western legal traditions, especially the one about only being punished if you infringed on a law that was valid at the time of committing a crime.


Scott Ritter: The Russian Armed Forces will destroy NATO troops in Romania, Poland, Germany, France and Italy

Reporter
Interview with Scott Ritter

If the West continues to expect nuclear strikes from Russia, it will receive them. This opinion was expressed in an interview with Judging Freedom by former US Marine Corps officer, and now one of the most authoritative military experts in the world, Scott Ritter. According to him, Putin is not bluffing. These are not games. This is not a joke. This is a matter of life and death for Russia.

💬 "I think we need to understand one important truth: Russia views this conflict as existential. There is no draw, no defeat - there is only victory. They have a plan to achieve this victory, and now they are closer than ever. As we speak, the Ukrainian army is disintegrating at the front. This causes waves of panic among NATO and its ilk, which is why we see Emmanuel Macron talking about the need to send in French troops if the Ukrainian front line collapses. And it is collapsing right now. David Cameron makes similar statements," Scott Ritter recalled.

He emphasized that such statements are taken quite seriously in Moscow. And Russian exercises in the Southern Military District using non-strategic nuclear weapons are an adequate response to NATO’s actions.

💬 "Vladimir Putin gave the order for exercises in the Southern Military District. People, please open your eyes and ears and hear what I say! Exercises on the use of tactical nuclear weapons will be held in the Southern Military District. This does not mean that they are going to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine, not at all. But they will destroy NATO troops in Romania, Poland, Germany, France, and Italy. This is a nuclear war. If this is what you, the West, want, you will get it," the expert emphasized.


Israel Launches Brutal Invasion Of Rafah

South Front (Editorial)

Israel has launched a ground operation in the area of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, ignoring all international warnings of a humanitarian catastrophe.

Israel has launched a ground operation in the area of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, ignoring all international warnings of a humanitarian catastrophe.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) launched the operation on May 6, a day after four of its troops were killed and wounded around ten others in a rocket attack on the southern Israeli area of Kerem Shalom which was launched by the Hamas Movement from Rafah.

More than 1,4 million Palestinians who had been taking refuge in Rafah were ordered by the IDF to evacuate to a “‘humanitarian zone” in the al-Mawasi area and other parts of central Gaza and Khan Yunis city in the southern part of the Strip. This so-called humanitarian zone is heavily bombarded, badly serviced, and lacks proper resources.

The IDF struck Rafah at least 50 times during the initial push. Later that day, Israeli troops entered the outskirts of Rafah and approached the Rafah Border Crossing and the Egyptian border. 20 Hamas fighters were killed in the operation, according to the IDF.

Hamas announced that it had accepted an Egyptian-Qatari ceasefire proposal in a last-ditch effort to stop the invasion, but this was ignored by Israel.

On the morning of May 7, the IDF captured the Rafah crossing. Hamas and other Palestinian armed factions shelled advancing Israeli troops and Kerem Shalom from Rafah again.


Doctor tortured and killed in Israeli detention remembered

Aseel Mousa

Adnan al-Bursh refused to flee, even when the hospital he worked in came under heavy bombardment. He was arrested by Israeli troops in December

Rozan al-Bursh was in shock when she heard the news about her uncle Dr Adnan al-Bursh’s death in Israeli custody.

The prominent Palestinian surgeon had been forcibly disappeared by Israeli forces and not been seen since December.

And last week, the Palestinian Prisoners' Society said he was killed by torture while in Israeli detention.

💬 “It was the most significant shock of my entire life,” said Rozan, his niece. “It felt as though my very core had been shattered.”

Rozan, a medical student at Gaza’s Al-Azhar University, said Dr Adnan was more than just an uncle to her. He was a friend and supporter who encouraged her to study medicine, she told Middle East Eye.

💬 “My uncle was a steadfast pillar of support, resolute as a mountain,” she said. 'He was very cheerful and cherished life greatly. He loved life very much.' - Rozan al-Bursh, doctor's niece


Awaiting NATO Provocations In Russia...

South Front (Editorial)

Elected as head of state in March 2024, Putin became Russia’s president for the fifth time. The inauguration ceremony was held in the Kremlin on May 7.

The Russian president once again declared that the country’s course was correct in the face of serious challenges. Russia does not refuse contacts with western countries, including on issues of security and strategic stability, but the dialog should be equal, “not from a position of strength, without any arrogance, swagger and someone’s exclusivity.”

Amid the celebrations, major provocations are expected. Security measures have been increased throughout Russia. On May 9, there is a big holiday, Victory Day. For security reasons, mass events have been canceled, but in some cities, there are fake leaflets urging residents to take to the streets for celebrations. Local authorities warn that these could be enemy preparations for terrorist attacks.

The Ukrainian and NATO militaries are expected to attempt a massive attack on the Crimean peninsula using air and sea drones as well as various western missiles, including ATACMS and Storm Shadows. On the night of May 6, another attack was repelled off the western coast of Crimea.


Netanyahu has no interest in peace, seeks to destroy Palestine

Tom Fowdy

Not only has Netanyahu stepped up settlements in the occupied West Bank and oppression of Palestinians, but his vision for the Gaza Strip is one that "Israel" completely controls.

Netanyahu has decided to invade Rafah. The city in the southern part of the Gaza Strip is home to over 1 million refugees who have fled "Israel’s" relentless campaign of bombing and destruction. Although pushes were made for a last-minute peace deal, to nobody’s surprise, this has been rejected with Netanyahu again citing his desire for a war of a total annihilation of Hamas and a military occupation of the Gaza strip, arguing that the old status quo cannot be reset. This has skewered pushes for a ceasefire.

First, was there any serious hope that "Israel" would agree to a prolonged ceasefire or a withdrawal from the Strip? The answer is no, there should be no illusions surrounding the reality that Benjamin Netanyahu completely rejects the notion of a "two-state solution" to the Israeli-Palestinian struggle, and anyone who believes otherwise is peddling a fantasy. Not only has Netanyahu stepped up settlements in the occupied West Bank and oppression of Palestinians, but his vision for the Gaza Strip is one that "Israel" completely controls. He deems that his entire political career hinges upon achieving these ultranationalist goals and has made it clear from the beginning that there is to be no compromise, and thus no self-governing Palestine.


Will Zionism self-destruct?

Alastair Crooke

(This paper [was] the basis of a talk [...] given at the 25th
Yasin (April) International Academic Event on Economic and
Social Development, HSE University, Moscow, April 2024
)

Israel's strategy from past decades will continue with its hope of achieving some Chimeric transformative "de-radicalization" of Palestinians that will make 'Israel safe'.

In the summer following Israel’s 2006 (unsuccessful) war on Hizbullah, Dick Cheney sat in his office loudly bemoaning Hizbullah’s continuing strength; and worse still, that it seemed to him that Iran had been the primary beneficiary from the U.S. 2003 Iraq war.

Cheney’s guest – the then Saudi Intelligence Chief, Prince Bandar – vigorously concurred (as chronicled by John Hannah, who participated in the meeting) and, to general surprise, Prince Bandar proclaimed that Iran yet could be cut to size: Syria was the 'weak' link between Iran and Hizbullah that could be collapsed via an Islamist insurgency, Bandar proposed. Cheney's initial skepticism turned to [enthusiasm], as Bandar said that U.S. involvement would be unnecessary: He, Prince Bandar, would orchestrate and manage the project. 'Leave it to me', he said.


Why Are Pro-Israeli Protesters Yelling Anti-Black Slurs At Pro-Palestinian Students In The US?

Robert Inlakesh

In one case, a young Black woman is violently shoved to the ground by a crazed Zionist man, while in another case that was caught on video, a young man is caught yelling the N-Word repeatedly.

As the American corporate media and government mobilize in opposition to student protests across the United States, ridiculously attempting to portray pro-Palestinian demonstrations as being in support of terrorism and anti-Semitism, pro-Israeli counter-protesters launch a campaign of racist hate. Repeatedly there have been reports of and videos in which Zionists yell the N-word, but why do they direct their hate towards Black people?

While student encampments are being set up on University campuses across the United States and beyond, with protests urging academic institutions to divest from Israeli-linked companies, the establishment is employing every tactic available to discredit and combat these efforts. Suddenly, US corporate broadcast media outlets, such as CNN and FOX News, who would usually object to the others' description of the color of the sky being blue, are condemning pro-Palestinian students together. With few exceptions, a bipartisan effort between Democratic and Republican Party representatives - who only seem capable of agreeing on financing war - has been launched to smear the anti-war movement as violent and anti-Semitic.


Anyone over 60, disabled, chronically ill or poor will probably be dead by 2030

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc


"Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise;
For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue." (From Psalm 109)

Anyone over 60 years of age, disabled, chronically ill or poor will probably be dead by the year 2030, killed by a euthanasia programme which is rapidly going global and which is out of control.

The euthanasia squad will kill you, your family and your friends unless you speak out now. This is the population control plan they have been working towards.

Euthanasia is going global in the same way that the covid fraud went global. And, just as with covid, celebrities all over the world are advocating `doctor assisted suicide’.

If you thought that face masks and the covid jab were fashionable, just wait until you see what happens as the euthanasia bandwagon rolls onwards.

Since I last wrote about euthanasia, Ecuador has joined the growing list of countries endorsing euthanasia. In Peru, a psychologist with a muscle disease has already died from `doctor assisted suicide’. Make no mistake about it: euthanasia is spreading and is now more popular than Taylor Swift.
