Body Counts  
A war now in its 11th year, comprising the invasion and occupation of two countries, as well as the ongoing bombing of at least three more, has not produced any holistic studies on its direct and indirect casualties.
That a global war can rage so long with no official will to ascertain the number of ‘others’ killed is indicative of the manner in which the cost of war is calculated by those states prosecuting it. Non-US and NATO dead, maimed, disappeared or displaced can’t be part of the equation if official policy is not to count.

Hat Tip The Human Cost of the "War on Terror" Body Counts

The Globalization of Propaganda And The Rise of The Alternative Media

Twofold assault on Syria's sovereignty and reputation represents the essence of Washington's present military capabilities: sponsoring terrorism, and establishing an international narrative with the aid of its vast media resources and diplomatic pressure.

It is hard to resist and diffuse propaganda that is targeted against large groups of people. In this case, anti-Syrian propaganda by the U.S., Israel, Turkey, and the Gulf states is being targeted against the entire global public.

Directed History of Syrian War?

From Tunisia to Egypt and then Libya and now Syria, Western powers are manufacturing pretexts for wars and toppling governments. Syria is the next to go but probably not the last.

They are working their way up toward Iran, it would seem. The question is why. The larger and even more fascinating question is whether any of this is coincidence.
Nothing about this rash of "youth movements" seems either spontaneous or credible. We've extensively documented the involvement of Washington and especially the State Department in destabilizing Egypt, Tunisia and Libya.
When it comes to Syria, the West is hardly trying to pretend anymore. Hillary Clinton has taken to proclaiming that Syrian President Assad must go. The unfolding war is destined to bring this about.
It is surely not about exploitation but about power. We noticed early on that the countries being destabilized all had secular governments and that the replacements would likely be Islamic-oriented governments.
This fits right into a larger perspective that the power elite is intent on creating tame regimes that will seem to endorse Islamic positions but that at the very top are beholden to Western powers.

by Stephen Lendman

When America goes to war or plans one, media scoundrels march in lockstep. Journalism is the first casualty. Managed news misinformation substitutes for truth and full disclosure.

Cheerleading propaganda is relentless. Readers and viewers are betrayed. Imperial wars are called liberating ones. Separating fact from fiction is challenging.

 As the wider scientific community is turning up the heat on Hansen, future generations will examine his leading role in promoting as “settled science” the now discredited greenhouse gas theory (GHE). Indeed, as retired former U.S. Navy meteorologist, Dr. Martin Hertzberg laments, “prior to the 1970′s no mainstream science journals considered the “greenhouse effect,” let alone the theory that human emissions of CO2 had any influence on the weather.
