Iraq crisis: ‘Strong evidence’ ISIS committing mass executions, war crimes, Human Rights Watch says

Photos and reports posted on the Hindu Times today allege that ISIS terrorists massacred at least 160 Iraqi men in Tikrit earlier this month.  One day after I updated this page with a very loud call for the US military to send in attack drones to stop the advance of ISIS on 6.27.2014, the next day it was reported that US military strike drones were now deployed in Iraq. I am not assuming there is any relationship between those two events, but it is a damned excellent coincidence.  Had those US military strike drones been called in on June 12th, the Iraqi army may have had a snowball’s chance in hell of rolling back the ISIS onslaught and saving Baghdad. One type of lightening strike calls for another in times of…

Iraq Update 6.26.2014

With sectarian boundaries ever more delineated in fracturing Iraq, American public opinion is fairly split right down the middle as to how much our own military should be involved in the melee. Younger Americans tend to believe “this is not our war” as the aptly titled article on Slate reads this morning. Older Americans, who well recall that “doing too little too late” can result in disaster. Many Americans still have clear memories of the opening moments of World War 2, when the UK stalled and did nothing during the opening salvos of Hitler’s ‘blitzkrieg’ European land grab, only to be suddenly showered with bombs and have their nation nearly destroyed by a newly out-of-control fascist Germany.

Inaction is a bold and somewhat reckless gamble. Moderate military action may be ineffective and futile.  Bold aggressive…

While Everyone Watches the World Cup, ISIS Is Taking Over Iraq

Alt News Reports

Events in Iraq since June 12th have moved with such speed it’s been a real struggle just to keep the blog front page current. For 3-4 critical days between June 10th and June 14th American news media outlets were either on vacation, or operating under a directive NOT to report news out of Iraq, an unheard of calamity in American news reporting.

By the time the US media began to report what was taking place in Iraq, much of it had already happened and been consolidated. It’s been a rapid downhill slide in that country ever since. The material below has been compiled since June 12th. I’m updating the front page about every 48 hours to reflect new developments.

At this pace there will no longer be an “Iraq” as we knew it by the end of the summer. What will exist in it’s place will be a slow motion…

America’s expanding police state

With so much happening internationally and the number of scandals, crises and general screw-ups of the Obama administration here at home, it’s worth noting a disturbing development here on the domestic front: a rapidly expanding police state.

On my radio program last week I had the pleasure of speaking with Cheryl Chumley, a reporter for The Washington Times, about her new book, “Police State USA: How George Orwell’s Nightmare is Becoming our Reality.” The title says it all, and aptly describes the shocking transformation of what had been our free society.

We all know about the scope of National Security Agency (NSA) spying. It’s fair to say at this point in our lives that the notion of privacy is all but dead and gone. However, it didn’t start there. In her book, Mrs. Chumley takes us…
