USA | Iran: Preparing the ‘Battle Space’

by Alastair Crooke

Bernard Lewis, a British-American historian of the Middle East, has been formidably influential in America – his policy ideas have towered over Presidents, policy-makers and think-tanks, and they still do. Though he died last year, his baleful views still shape America’s thinking about Iran. Mike Pompeo, for example, has written: “I met him only once, but read much of what he wrote. I owe a great deal of my understanding of the Middle East to his work … He was also a man who believed, as I do, that Americans must be more confident in the greatness of our country, not less”.

U.S. War Drums Beat Louder and Louder

U.S. Hands Off Iran and Venezuela!

As we go to press the U.S. war drums are beating louder and louder.

As part of a mounting series of U.S. provocations against Iran, the U.S. State Department has ordered all “non-critical government employees” to leave Iraq on the grounds that, “U.S. intelligence has learned that Iran is planning strikes on U.S. forces in Iraq.” U.S. Central Command in the region reported in a statement on May 13 that, “U.S. troops are now at a high level of alert as we continue to monitor credible and possibly imminent threats to U.S. forces in Iraq.”

Reporter Sharmine Narwani on the secret history of America’s defeat in Syria

by Patrick Lawrence

When the war in Syria was recently declared decisively over, there were few correspondents or witnesses to turn to for a credible look at exactly what happened during eight years of conflict. The questions were many, but I could count on one hand those worth putting them to. Among these was Sharmine Narwani, whose work I have long counted distinctly thorough and honest amid coverage that — in her view as well as mine — hit a new low by way of collapsed professional standards and abandoned ethics. Narwani’s pieces, written for a variety of publications, consistently reflect her hard work on the ground — work nearly no one else did. She is eyes wide open and beholden to no national interest or media slant.

Ukraine is armed with NATO weapons

Since US backed coup in Ukraine its new government has collaborated with the USA and other NATO members. The collaboration has been lasting for five years. Maidan coup has provoked a civil war in Ukraine that is why current Ukrainian authorities constantly need military help to fight against pro-Russian rebels. NATO countries give it up regularly. In April 2019 when civil war reached its fifth anniversary many countries from North Atlantic alliance demonstrated their support to Kiev government.
