The imperialist media has played the principal role in the ballooning moral drama following the murder and apparent dismemberment of Jamal Khashoggi, a contributing journalist for the Washington Post, by the Saudi state. The seemingly endless propaganda drive for “justice” has once again exposed contradictions within imperialist state, putting Trump’s party and regime in a […]

The massacres carried out by the israeli Apartheid state, the rejection by Netanyahu of the old u.$.-sponsored two-state solution, and the growing fanaticism of the israeli population all inform against the well-manicured public image of the “Jewish state”. In January, both Haaretz and the New York Times carried pieces all but proclaiming the two-state solution […]

Days after polls closed in Iraq, the final count has been released. The radical coalition Sairoon (translated to “On the Move” by western sources) has declared its initial victory, with Muqtada al-Sadr and the Iraqi Communist Party gaining a slight majority in the parliament. We would first like to congratulate the Iraqi Communist Party and […]

On this 73rd anniversary of the conclusion of WWII it is as fitting a time as any to discuss the acute nostalgic trend in the imperialist countries to remember it, through rose-colored glasses, as the last just war. In sharp contrast to the memory of WWI—what little exists of it—the people of the imperialist countries, […]

Months have passed since the so-called liberation of Mosul by the u.$.-led coalition in Iraq, and the city has yet to recover. Very little construction has taken place, as most buildings remain in ruin, hardly the sight one normally associates with a city rejoicing for its freedom. The Iraqi army, with the full support of […]

Another devastating blow has been dealt to the imperialist coalition in Yemen, this time from the southern separatist movement. Formerly part of the tenuous alliance of groups under the Saudi-backed Hadi regime, almost a week ago the Southern Transitional Council (STC) issued an ultimatum to Hadi: either reshuffle the cabinet or they will abandon their […]

The Afghan occupation is unraveling. The invaders have been forced entirely into a defensive posture, always reacting to the advances of the Taliban forces, never advancing themselves. We hear sporadic news of increased aerial bombing—succeeding mostly in killing Afghan civilians—and the targeting of so-called drug labs, but nothing of real advance. The imperialists are stuck, […]

There’s been a lot of buzz in the mainstream media and the moribund neoliberal establishment over the hope for disintegration in the opposing camp. They pour all of their hopes and project all their fantasies onto the protests in Iran, and make international shows of support for movements they seem to know very little about. […]

The Trump regime has unveiled its new strategy for National Security in the era of “amerika first” policy-making. The regime’s hope is to stabilize the evaporating amerikan dominance by reorienting amerikan security policy from one predicated on diplomacy to one built on overwhelming force—hardly a novel concept in amerikan foreign policy. The new plan rests […]

[Circulated 12/06/17 by the Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM), the Revolutionary Anti-Imperialist Movement wholeheartedly endorses the position of the PYM on the imperialist selection of Al-Quds as the capital of the Zionist entity.] We, the Palestinian Youth Movement, condemn the recent iterations of the US Settler government advancing the Zionist entity’s ethnic cleansing of Palestine. We […]

The heroic struggle of the Yemeni people continues on, intensifying with every passing day. They are besieged from all sides, yet have achieved spectacular victories in their struggle for independence against the imperialist coalition and the traitor “president” Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, who continues to depend on the backing of the world’s chief parasites for everything […]

amerikans cannot escape the opioid epidemic—whether wealthy white families from Maine to the Midwest, or the gas station employee who stumbles on an overdose in the bathroom every other week. It is the most talked-about crisis since Uncle Sam, prince-elector of misery, elevated Freeway Rick to the imperial seat of the crack game; and it […]

Within a month of one another, the amerikans and the Taliban fixed their positions in preparation for a new phase of the struggle in Afghanistan. On August 15th, Taliban released an open letter declaring that the precondition for the resumption of peace-talks and a hopeful ceasefire is the withdrawal of all amerikan forces from the […]

Trump has once again coaxed “civically conscious” liberals into putting on a passion play of imperialist propaganda, to, in effect, “show Trump how imperialism is really done.” Every time Trump produces one of these sideshows (you can practically set your watch by these types of distractions from his flailing administration) the imperial left responds with […]

If there’s a God, he waited too goddamn long. u.$. eques, and Grand Ole Man of the carpet bombing, John McCain, has been diagnosed with (hopefully terminal) cancer. The Butcher of Belgrade, the Crown Prince of Kabul, the Benefactor of Baghdad, the plutocratic/plutonium pencil-pusher extraordinaire, who has for decades appropriated monies for, cheered at, and […]

It is no secret that the united $tates has been warming up to the possibility of a Kurdish state, primarily in Iraq and Syria (and depending how far the relationship with Turkey deteriorates, perhaps in that country as well), and has been working alongside Kurdish nationalists in Iran for decades now. Until recently they have […]

In the wake of the Daesh-claimed attack in Tehran that left 17 innocents dead, the Trump creature let fly an uncharacteristic press statement on the attacks (uncharacteristic in that somebody wrote it for him, and it wasn’t a tweet), the sheer irony of which cannot be conveyed in words, but we’ll try. Concerning Iran, the […]

“Superficial and reactionary measures, especially when pursued through law, will have no other outcome but to clear the way for future crises by intensifying existing polarizations… These behaviors are unjust and we all know that pursuing injustice has the unwanted characteristic of reversibility.” —Ayatollah Khamenei, in his second letter to the western youth following the […]
