Economic Warfare Against Iran


'Planning for attack on Iran s nuclear facilities intensifying in US and Israel'


The Washington Post gets tough with Iran
by Philip Giraldi


One can argue about whether Iran actually supports terrorism or not; the groups that The Washington Post is no doubt referring to would prefer to think of themselves as resistance movements against Israel, while Iran has itself been on the receiving end of terrorist attacks from Israel and the United States. None of Iran s regional allies that Washington and Tel Aviv describe as terrorists plausibly threaten the United States. But even conceding that point, there is much else that is questionable in the op-ed...

The End in Afghanistan is Totally Predictable

By Dave Lindorff
