The Truth About the U.S. / Saudi Genocide in Yemen – Scott Horton and Keith Knight

The Truth About the U.S. / Saudi Genocide in Yemen – Scott Horton and Keith Knight

Mankind is a mixture of good and evil, of cooperative and criminal tendencies. In my view, the anarchist society is one which maximizes the tendencies for the good and the cooperative, while it minimizes both the opportunity and the moral legitimacy of the evil and the criminal. If the anarchist view is correct, and the State is indeed the great legalized and socially legitimated channel for all manner of antisocial crime — theft , oppression, mass murder — on a massive scale, then surely the abolition of such an engine of crime can do nothing but favor the good in man and discourage the bad….The anarchist view holds that, given the “nature of man,” given the degree of goodness or badness at any point of time, anarchism will maximize the opportunities for good and minimize the channels for the bad.

Year Zero 92: Soleimani Was An Imminent Threat, But Not To American Lives

Year Zero 92: Soleimani Was An Imminent Threat, But Not To American Lives

The Trump administration has backed off of the narrative that Soleimani was in Baghdad to plot attacks on four American embassies, but they haven’t addressed the imminent threat he truly posed. While it’s true the Iranian general can’t be credibly linked to the deaths of Americans or a future plot; he is absolutely linked to plotting peace in Yemen without US support, threatening the world empire’s dominance in the region.

Listen to Year Zero

The Grammar of the Soleimani Assassination

The Grammar of the Soleimani Assassination

By now we’ve heard enough official explanations of Trump’s assassination of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani and others to realize they are all nonsense. (And Secretary of State Mike Pompeo now admits it.) Trump killed Soleimani because, egged on by his unsavory friends Saudi crown prince Mohammad bin Salman and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he has it in for Iran. So when the opportunity to pull off the murder-by-drone came along, he took it. It’s not as though he thought he needed a special justification. It’s good to be the king — er, president.

Most official explanations have entailed some sort of threat to US military or diplomatic personnel, “interests,” or “assets.” And sometimes one US official has had no idea what another is talking about. Trump said four embassies were threatened, but his secretary of defense said that was news to him. Other explanations tie the killings to the breach of the US embassy in Baghdad that occurred after Iran and the US had exchanged strikes in Iraq that took the lives of 25 Iraqis and one American. In other words, it was retribution not prevention. (Killing Iran’s top general while on a peace mission to Iraq seems, let’s say, disproportionate to the temporary embassy breach in which no one was killed or injured.)

If all this is confusing, don’t worry about it: Trump says none of it matters.

But I want to focus on the the initial claim, namely, that Soleimani had been planning “imminent” attacks of some unspecified nature. This, by the way, is debunked by an NBC report that the assassination was planned seven months ago. But we’ll let that go right now.

Since no such attacks occurred, we are entitled to dismiss Trump’s claim. Had attacks been imminent, why would anyone believe that killing Soleimani would stop them? Assassinating him would seem more likely to guarantee them. They were imminent after all.

But let’s go a step deeper — into the grammar, or logic, of all this. I realize that people can use words in differing ways, but I can’t shake the thought that if you are planning to do something, the planned action cannot be imminent. If you tell me something is imminent, I take that to mean the planning is over; execution is next. (Pun unintended but noticed.)

So I would advise that the next time the government tells you it’s killed someone because he was planning an imminent attack, it’s lying.

Donald Trump wants to Leave Syria but Bomb Yemen?

Donald Trump wants to Leave Syria but Bomb Yemen?

Trump has called for some US troops to withdraw from northeastern Syria.  However this move has Democrats screaming about the local Kurds being abandoned who were our ally, that we were protecting.

However they are criticizing him for the wrong reasons.  The real hypocrisy is that Donald Trump wants to continue US aid to Saudi Arabia to bomb children in Yemen and withdraw from the Iran Nuclear Deal.  In this episode, we break down the common thread between all these Middle Eastern conflicts.

Iran & Israel: A Love Story

Iran & Israel: A Love Story

Did you know Iran offered to help the United States defeat al-Qaeda?

Israel and Iran both are isolated by the same Sunni Arab enemies.  They both funded the same terrorist group Hamas.  And they both rival for the attention of the United States.  Iran and Israel are now bitter enemies but looking back at the history, you might think these two were destined to be star-crossed lovers.  Where did it all go wrong?

Israel and Iran both are isolated by the same Sunni Arab enemies.  Where did these potential star crossed lovers go wrong?  Brand New Political Comedy, Iran & Israel, A Love Story:

Year Zero: Trump, Biden, Saudi Arabia, and the Intelligence Community

Year Zero: Trump, Biden, Saudi Arabia, and the Intelligence Community

In episode 68 Tommy looks at the latest news surrounding Hunter Biden, Trump, and the deployment of troops to Saudi Arabia to defend against the threat that is Iran. Tommy speculates that given the history of business interest and intelligence interest merging that the reason Trump is once again being threatened by leaks has to do with his unwillingness to stick to the protocol of National Security laid out before him upon taking office.

The Irony of Iran/Israel Tensions

The Irony of Iran/Israel Tensions

There’s a huge irony that during the 1980s, when Iran talked the most shit, Israel armed them.  However, later in the 1990s, when Iran’s rhetoric moderated, Israel pressured America to increase sanctions.  How & why did this irony come about?

 

Some say this irony can be placed on Iran for sabotaging the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians by arming extremist terrorist groups that objected to the Oslo agreements. However, how did this tension first begin?  What is the root cause of it?  Who is to blame for the modern conflict and failed peace talks with the Palestinians?  Tune in to the brand new political comedy episode!

Saudi Arabia Oil Attack. What really happened?

Saudi Arabia Oil Attack. What really happened?

Saudi Arabia’s oil production facilities were attacked by drone strikes from an unknown attacker.  Yemen’s Houthi rebels claim to have done the strike, but some question this story.  American intelligence points the finger at Iran, while some suggest this is a false flag to purposefully incite war.  What is the truth?  Tune in to find out!

Why Iran Hates Israel, if it’s NOT their land?!

Iran is a thousand miles away from Israel.  And unlike the Palestinians, Iran doesn’t claim Israeli land.

 

So why does Shiite Iran arm Sunni Palestinians, when their enemies are Sunni? The Palestinians are predominately Sunni Muslim, which is the Arab group that Iran is at war with!

 

If you are confused, then this episode is for you.  We’ll dive into the history of Israel arming Iran secretly during the Iran-Contra scandal.  And how that transitioned into modern relations.

This is based on the book, Treacherous Alliance: The Secret Dealings of Israel, Iran, and the United States by Trita Parsi:
