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…

Excerpt: “So, ultimately what we are facing is a situation in which, Israel—which greatly increased its power over the US after it was the key player in the September 11, 2001, coup d’etat featuring the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center—has realized that its whole plan, which was to radically reshape the region to its own benefit by taking out seven countries in five years, the seventh and most important being Iran, has run up into a dead end. They can’t stop…

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…

Malcolm X Was Right, Islam Can Solve US Racism Problem

Iranian newspaper Sobhe Sadiq interviews Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor Question: Protests over police brutality and the death of George Floyd continue to rage across the US. What do you think about the protests? I sympathize with people who are angry about the murder of George Floyd and other abuses by American police. Abusive police are a serious problem here in the USA, epecially in black communities. The police abuse problem is one aspect of the larger problem of rampant injustices and inequalities. There is also the related problem of the moral, ethical, and spiritual vacuum left by the decline…

During a White House press briefing on the COVID-19 pandemic on April 20, 2020, Trump confessed to the stupidity of US policy in the Middle East. Referring to trillions of dollars spent on America’s never-ending wars, Trump asked, “How stupid have we been?” Yet two days later, he ordered the US Navy to “shoot down and destroy” Iranian gunboats allegedly harassing US…

Michael Howard (American Herald Tribune) on “The Iranian Black Legend”

Listen HERE Judging by his photo, American Herald Tribune writer Michael Howard doesn’t look old enough to remember the 1960s and 1970s. But he seems fully up to speed on the propaganda “black legend” that’s been blasting out BS about Iran ever since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. In this interview we discuss the insanity of American foreign policy, especially its mad infatuation with nuclear weapons and Zionism, its Iranophobia, and its clumsy aggression towards Russia and China, forcing those two nations to form an alliance against the declining US (ex-)hegemon. Note: The American Herald Tribune has recently come under attack…
