Pentagon Says Conducted ‘Defensive’ Airstrikes Against Pro-Syrian Gov’t Forces

(So now we are directly attacking Syrian troops on behalf of the Glorious Kurds (read as “new Contras”) as they attempt to stop them from busting off a piece of their country for the Greater Kurdistan project. Or was it the Turks we attacked?)

from Sputnik

The US-led coalition conducted defensive airstrikes against pro-government forces in Syria that attacked Syrian Democratic Forces headquarters near the Euphrates River, the Central Command said in a press release.

“Syrian pro-regime forces initiated an unprovoked attack against well-established Syrian Democratic Forces headquarters Feb. 7,” the release said Wednesday. “In defense of Coalition and partner forces, the Coalition conducted strikes against attacking forces to repel the act of aggression against partners engaged in the Global Coalition’s defeat-Daesh [Daesh] mission.”…

What Next? US Bans All Russian Nukes?

by Finian Cunningham, Sputnik International

Provocatively and recklessly, the American Pentagon has recently accused Russia of threatening European allies with nuclear weapons. On the basis of this deplorable accusation, the US is embarking on a $1 trillion upgrade of its nuclear arsenal.

The American nuclear revamp not only puts it in potential violation of disarmament agreements; the move is also destabilizing nuclear forces and increases the risk of catastrophic global war.

If ever Washington’s reckless power politics were in doubt, this is surely the touchstone issue…

New Batch of FBI Lovers’ Texts Praise Comey, Mock Virginia ‘Hillbillies’

from Sputnik International

Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, the FBI employees who got into hot water last year for their anti-Trump bias in their roles in the Clinton email investigation and the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential race, also had some nasty things to say about US lawmakers and Republicans in general, newly disclosed text messages reveal.

The texts, being released by lawmakers and reviewed by US media, include a July 2016 exchange in which Strzok and Page mock Congress as “less than worthless and “utterly contemptable” amid lawmakers’ questioning of then-FBI Director James Comey over his suspected leniency in the Clinton email server case.

Strzok, who was removed from his position in the ongoing investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller into Russia’s alleged meddling into US election last year, also gloats in the newly revealed texts about Comey’s ability to keep cool amid questioning about why he decided not to seek criminal charges against Clinton.

“God he is SO good,” Strzok wrote. “I know,” Page replied. “Brilliant public speaker. And brilliant distillation of fact.”…

Other texts, including Strzok’s disparaging characterization of Virginia residents who voted against Democrat Jill McCabe’s bid for a State Senate seat as “ignorant hillbillys (sic),” further showed the extent of the FBI employee’s partisan bias…

Israel demolishes another EU-funded school

from Electronic Intifada

Israeli occupation forces demolished two school buildings in the Abu Nuwwar community on 4 February, located in the so-called E1 area of the occupied West Bank, east of Jerusalem.

The destruction leaves more than 25 children in the third and fourth grades without a place to learn.

“The demolition of educational buildings is one of the means Israel uses in its attempt to expel Palestinian communities from their homes, so that it can concentrate the residents in enclaves and use the territory for its own needs,” the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem stated
