Seven Profoundly Stupid Things That People Say About WikiLeaks

Seven Profoundly Stupid Things That People Say About WikiLeaks

WikiLeaks is due to release its mysterious and spectacularly-hyped “Vault 7” drop within hours of this writing. A few hours later we’ll probably all be arguing about its contents, so I figure it’d be helpful to tap out a few of the most shockingly moronic things that people often say about WikiLeaks in online discourse to give my readers some […]

Rehabilitating Bush – The Deadly Illusion Of Corporate Dissent

Rehabilitating Bush – The Deadly Illusion Of Corporate Dissent

The title of the editorial said it all: ‘The Guardian view on George W Bush: a welcome return’ In a tongue-in-cheek, almost jovial, piece the Guardian unsubtly rehabilitated a man responsible for crimes that are among the most egregious in all history. Bush was responsible for the destruction of an entire country, the killing of one million Iraqis, the wounding […]

La la liberals showcase Obama and play supporting role to the Deep State

La la liberals showcase Obama and play supporting role to the Deep State

From Jan 16th: As Barack Obama approaches his last day in office, emotional liberals have been recording their tributes to the president and dark fears over what’s to come. There’s been hagiographic coverage of Obama’s farewell speech, and‘heartwarming’ pictures of his tenure. A succession of Hollywood names, from Tom Hanks to Samuel L Jackson, have been re-stating Obama’s ‘Yes We Can’ motif. In similar […]

This Is Killing

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

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 […]

Voices from Syria

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

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

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, […]

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

We should respect military tradition – by unionising the army

We should respect military tradition – by unionising the army

The first professional army in these islands was a hothouse of debate and democracy. With the 370th anniversary of the New Model’s finest hour approaching, it is time to examine what it means to be a soldier or veteran in Britain today. Buff-coated, blood-stained To lean on the work of Geoffrey Robertson QC, one of the great biographers of the […]
