This Is Killing

I made this mock Army Advert shown above recently after seeing Darren Cullen’s (SpellingMistakesCostLives) reinvention of the latest “this is belonging” Army advertising slogan to “this is belonging, to the state” (see bottom of page). I showed a friend my “This Is Killing” version and asked what he thought and should I share it. He said “Think that might be appealing? […]

War Is Peace: Obama’s Pathological Legacy

The malady, common among political leaders who commit heartless crimes while craving popular adulation as heroes and misunderstood saints, is ‘Political Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy’ (PMSP). PMSP best explains the pathologic drive of politicians and policy makers who inflict relentless, systematic mass destruction and then intervene in a most theatrical manner to save a few victims – thus drawing gratitude from the victim […]

Western Media Whitewashes Rebel Destruction of Damascus Water Supply

Syria’s capital city Damascus continues to suffer without water. The water which fed four million people, was cut off by insurgents who have occupied the aquifer in Wadi Barada since late December. The insurgents, which include an alliance of US backed groups and Al Qaeda’s Syria branch Jabhat Fateh Al Sham (formally Jabhat al Nusra), uploaded a video of themselves […]

Voices from Syria

Global Research Publishers brings you “Voices from Syria”, a new e-book by author Mark Taliano.  Excerpt from Preface: Between 15 and 23 September 2016, I travelled to war-torn Syria because I sensed years ago that the official narratives being fed to North Americans across TV screens, in newsprint and on the internet were false. The invasions of Afghanistan, Iraq, and […]

PHONY ANTI-WAR PROTESTS

Veterans For Peace UK has a membership with a wide range of political views. That is one reason why we don’t get involved in party politics. Another reason is that it doesn’t matter who gets elected, Labour, Conservative or a coalition government, the wars just keep coming. So if we don’t get involved in domestic party politics, it is a […]

Chelsea Manning: A Real Post 9/11 Hero

“Among her achievements was to prove to other military personnel that they were correct to question the wars and entitled to refuse, resist and disobey.” It is instructive of our times that the greatest military hero of a generation became a prisoner not in the dungeons of some far-off enemy but in those of her own side. Meaningful military heroism, […]

The REAL Friends of Syria

In stark contrast to the warmongers, criminals and their sycophants in the corporate media and NGO complex, the true friends of Syria are seldom seen on the nightly news. True friends are those who, in these times of fake news and war propaganda embroidered to a degree Edward Bernays could barely imagine, give voice to the voiceless.

Rank Hypocrisy at UK Foreign Office

It is no exaggeration to suggest that in the past century alone the UK has been at the forefront of the bloody industry that is modern war and has done everything possible to avoid and disrupt the peace. Barely a year has gone by since the end of the second world war when the British military were not fighting and killing in some far off country

Buff-coat

‘Hey there ‘Buff-coat’! I know you! We were once comrades Brothers good and true We fought side by side In England’s bloody war Do you not remember me? Let me tell you more We marched along together Through England’s hill and vale And when we got to Putney We told a signal tale Our case was truly stated We thought […]

Open Letter to “Human Rights Defenders” on Aleppo

It is quite remarkable that some leftists, who are very critical of their mainstream media when it comes to domestic policies, swallow almost entirely the Western “narrative” when it comes to Russia or Syria. But if the media distort reality in our own countries, why wouldn’t they do the same when it comes to foreign countries, where things are harder to verify?

Is Syrian ‘civil war’ coming to an end?

How could 5000 IS fighters cross the desert in Syria, not once but twice, to attack the ancient city of Palmyra, without western military and intelligence agencies being aware? Has this question ever been asked by journalists from the corporate media in the UK and US? This discussion on Indian TV is what we are truly lacking in the west.
