...................By contrast, there is
substantial evidence that senior U.S.
officials were pushing for a “regime change”
in Kiev, including

intercepted phone call
various public statements.

In December 2013,
Assistant Secretary of State Victoria
Nuland, a neocon holdover, reminded
Ukrainian business leaders that the United
States had invested $5 billion in their
“European aspirations.” In early February,
she discussed with U.S. Ambassador Geoffrey
Pyatt who the new leaders of Ukraine should
be. “Yats is the guy,” she declared,
referring to Arseniy Yatsenyuk. [See’s “Who’s
Telling the Big Lie on Ukraine

The Maidan uprising gained
momentum on Feb. 20, 2014, when snipers
around the square opened fire on police and
protesters touching off a violent clash that
left scores of people dead, both police and
protesters. After the sniper fire and a
police retreat — carrying their wounded —
the demonstrators surged forward and
some police apparently reacted with return
fire of their own.

But the growing evidence
indicates that the initial sniper fire
originated from locations controlled by the
Right Sektor, extremists associated with the
Maidan’s neo-Nazi “self-defense” commandant
Andriy Parubiy. Though the current Ukrainian
government has dragged its feet on an
investigation, independent field reports,

new one from BBC
, indicate that
the snipers were associated with the
protesters, not the Yanukovych government as
was widely reported in the U.S. media a year

Nir Rosen: Gaza: Israel, Hamas and the logic of colonial power | Comment is free | "I have spent most of the Bush administration's tenure reporting from Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Somalia and other conflicts. I have been published by most major publications. I have been interviewed by most major networks and I have even testified before the senate foreign relations committee. The Bush administration began its tenure with Palestinians being massacred and it ends with Israel committing one of its largest massacres yet in a 60-year history of occupying Palestinian land. Bush's final visit to the country he chose to occupy ended with an educated secular Shiite Iraqi throwing his shoes at him, expressing the feelings of the entire Arab world save its dictators who have imprudently attached themselves to a hated American regime."

Murder and Donald Trump

By Patrick

Only four days
after his public defense of torture and “a hell of a
lot worse” in US military-intelligence
interrogations, billionaire Donald Trump added
assassination to his foreign policy arsenal as well.
Speaking Wednesday on the “CBS This Morning”
program, Trump said that his solution to the US
conflict with North Korea over its nuclear weapons
program would be to eliminate North Korean leader
Kim Jong-un.

“I would
get China to make that guy disappear in one form or
another very quickly,” Trump told interviewer Norah
O’Donnell. When she followed up by asking if that
meant having Kim Jong-un assassinated, Trump
replied, “Well, I’… "Beyond these assumptions lies an even more disturbing thought pattern that has failed to grasp the true nature of the political system in Pakistan. Just because Pakistan was created in the name of Islam and its rulers have Muslim names, no-one should assume that they abide by any Islamic principles. After all, Imam Husain (ra) and his companions were not martyred by mushriks; those who carried out the massacre at Karbala were people with Muslim names who probably offered salah both before and after perpetrating the crime. There is no reason to believe that they did not also fast in the month of Ramadan and fulfil other basic Islamic obligations. The present-day Muslim rulers are much more removed from Islam, despite their Islamic credentials or pretensions, because they are subservient to the kuffar and dependant on them to stay in power."
