The U.S. Deserves Its Own Nuremberg Trials Are Americans capable of committing atrocities on the same scale as Germans did under Nazi rule? That is the question that University of San Francisco ethics professor Rebecca Gordon and Truthdig Editor in Chief Robert Scheer grapple with in the latest installment of "Scheer Intelligence." Gordon, author of "Mainstreaming Torture" and "American Nuremberg," posits that if America's actions in the Middle East, especially in Iraq, were to be scrutinized the way Nazi Germany's crimes were probed in the aftermath of World War II, the U.S. would likely also be found guilty of crimes against humanity.

US to ICC – We Will Break Your Legs Well, not exactly like that, but in a way, yes. Now, finally, 'the gloves are off'.

Hate Fest In Warsaw Warsaw, Poland is not a fun place to visit in darkest February, but that is where the US just staged an anti-Iranian jamboree of 60 client states that brought derision and scorn from Europeans and much of the Mideast.
Understanding Why Iranians Bash the U.S. Government Two days ago, the New York Times carried an article by Times' journalist Thomas Erdbrink entitled, "For Iran, a Grand Occasion to Bash the U.S.," which was about Iran's celebration of the 40th anniversary of its revolution in 1979.

Trump's Iran summit shows just how far he is from the rest of the west Does Mike Pompeo realise what a foolish figure he cuts as he shambles around Europe, spouting risible tosh about Donald Trump's commitment to a "new liberal order" and America as "force for good" in the Middle East? It seems he does not. Pompeo is a former soldier, Tea Party Republican, hawkish CIA chief and enthusiastic torture advocate who complained in 2013 that Guantanamo Bay inmates on hunger strike had "put on weight". Self-awareness is not really his thing.
Venezuela - Trump's Coup Plan Has Big Flaws While U.S. coup plotting against Venezuela goes back to at least 1998 when the deceased President Chavez won his first election, the actual planning for this coup attempt was only done during the last two month. There are many holes in the plan and it involves a lot of wishful thinking. That might give the Maduro government openings to deflect the attack.
Top 5 Dumbest Arguments Defending Trump's Venezuela Interventionism ...sure there are Venezuelans who don't like their government, but their existence doesn't justify US interventionism. Secondly, it's a known fact that online trolls will be employed to help manufacture support for all sorts of geopolitical agendas, from Israel's shill army to the MEK terror cult's anti-Iran troll farm to the Bana Alabed psyop for Syria. And here's this example, just for your information, of a Twitter account talking about how much fun she's having in Paris and then a few days later claiming she's in Venezuela waiting in "5+ hour queues to buy a loaf of bread." Be skeptical of what strangers on social media tell you about what's happening inside a nation that's been targeted by the empire, please.

In Images: Venezuelan People Mobilize In Support of Maduro During a hectic day in Venezuela, the mainstream media coverage focused on the mobilization of the opposition and the opinions of a select group of international figures, ignoring the thousands who took to the streets in defense of democracy, national sovereignty, peace and the Bolivarian Revolution.
Washington Has Appointed A President For Venezuela After listening since 2016 to the American presstitutes complain, without providing a mere scrap of evidence, of Russia meddling in US elections, a person would think that the last thing Washington would do would be to meddle in other countries’ elections.
The American Scream Just like when the medieval executioners tortured their prisoners to scream out for "mercy", so today two former aides of US President Donald Trump are put being on the rack to extract a begging response.
