Independent Media Reveals the Criminal Nature
of US Foreign Policy

The World is at a dangerous crossroads. I think everybody who reads the independent media knows that. But those who are strung to CNN and Time Magazine might have understood otherwise. Lies by omission: The danger of nuclear annihilation is not front-page news, nor is America’s “Killing Fields” in Yemen where children are dying as a result of a US enforced blockade on food and medicine.
America’s wars are portrayed by the media as humanitarian endeavors. “The Responsibility to Protect” (R2P) doctrine provides a framework which justifies military action.
Dear Readers: when war is upheld as peacemaking, conceptualization is no longer possible. Once the Lie Becomes the Truth, there is No Moving Backwards. Insanity prevails. The world is turned upside down.
The Western media and politicians, in chorus, have obfuscated the unspoken truth, namely that the US-NATO led war destroys humanity.
On this Thanksgiving Weekend our thoughts are with Native Americans “in recognition of the suffering they have endured since Europeans first began their conquest of indigenous lands over 500 years ago.”
Our thanks to our contributors who are scattered across the globe. To the best of our abilities, Global Research seeks to report with accuracy, insight and commitment to social justice and a World without war.
There is no such thing as a “Just War” as put forth by the U.S. and its allies with the relentless support of the corporate media.
Without the daily gush of war propaganda, America’s military endeavors would fall flat. The criminal nature of US foreign policy would be fully revealed.
Our objective is to reverse the tide of media disinformation, protect independent thought and uphold “Net Neutrality”. This objective in turn is geared towards ultimately dismantling the propaganda apparatus and the US-NATO military agenda which threatens the future of humanity
No easy task. And that’s why we Need the Support of Our Readers
