Wiser elements in Washington establishment get Iran’s message: Analyst

By Kevin Barrett, for Press TV Iran’s military has just held a bunch of war games in the Strait of Hormuz featuring a mock-up of US aircraft carrier, which of course would be the prime target if the US ever attacked Iran—its fleet in the Persian Gulf would face serious problems. I think Iran is sending a message that if Bibi Netanyahu and Donald Trump think that they need to start a big Middle East war to try to keep them out of prison and keep them in power, well, they need to think again, because that war might not…

US has long history of committing terrorism against civilian planes

Press TV By Kevin Barrett The US military is apparently lying about its harassment of an Iranian passenger plane over Syria. The US military spokespeople are saying that this apparent harassment by F15 warplanes didn’t really happen, they were just on a routine mission and it just sort of happened to go by 1000 feet away from the Iranian passenger plane for no particular reason, when in fact this was obviously deliberate harassment. So why would they be lying? And is this bad for their reputation? I suppose…although the reputation of the US government and its military for telling the…

The Real Reason Why Islamophobia Sweeping Across the US

By Kevin Barrett, for Press TV Alaa Massri, who’s an activist in New York, was recently arrested and stripped of her hijab by the police, who then distributed the photo. This is one of many indignities that Muslim women in the US sometimes suffer. We’ve had a wave of Islamophobia sweeping across the US ever since the September 11 false flag operation, which was actually orchestrated precisely to generate that kind of Islamophobia, and to weaponize it, both in service to wars around the world against the enemies of Israel and Zionism, and also to try to put a lid…

Chickenhawks Trump, Bolton, Netanyahu terrified of Iran

“So what are we to make of these two evil clowns, with Trump being mostly clown, and Netanyahu being mostly evil?” By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor, interviewed by Press TV John Bolton has leaked the manuscript of his new unapproved book about his experiences in the Trump administration. And of course, the top headlines are that Bolton is confirming all these other reports that Trump is incompetent. And also, I think Bolton is echoing earlier reports that the hawkish side of the national security deep state doesn’t find Trump a very good leader, because Trump is not reliable, and his…

In this edition of the debate, we will ask this exact question from our guests, and look at why this illegal war is still being waged one of the poorest countries in the world…

US bankers stole $7 trillion during COVID-19 lockdown, destroyed small businesses

By Kevin Barrett, for Press TV Donald Trump has a way of saying a lot of crazy and incoherent things. And he’s such a ‘genius’ at it that people (like comedian Sarah Cooper) can parody him pretty much by just playing a tape of what he says. And recently, the most recent example of this is his quite amazing statement that the concept of chokeholds sounds ‘so innocent, so perfect.’ That is a very strange statement. It sounds like something that an insane murderer would say after he’s been arrested for choking hundreds of people to death. They finally got…

Israel taught ‘knee-on-neck’ terror tactic to US police: Analyst

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor for Press TV USA Today just published an article about the history of police brutality against black people in the United States, going back to pre-United States colonial times. The headline cites the 400-year history of anti-black racism in the United States. It talks about the slave patrols that were basically vigilante squads that enforced slavery and tried to catch runaway slaves and those who helped them. And then after the Civil War and the abolition of slavery similar groups like the Ku Klux Klan sprang up, and often got assistance from police departments and…
