In response to the u.$. recognition of the treacherous comprador Juan Guaido, the president of the equally treacherous national assembly, as the “legitimate” president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro has moved to cut all diplomatic ties with them. The international response further exposes the sharpening contradictions in the world, where old alliances are now being forsaken […]

By way of an order issued December 19th to his cabinet and staff, Trump has called for a “full and rapid” withdrawal of amerikan troops in Syria, stating “[w]e have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency.” This has caused an uproar among legislators and the brass, who […]

Following the latest act of criminal escalation by u.$. imperialism, with more than 100 cruise missiles fired into Syria as a “warning” to the Assad government, the accelerated demise of the forces holding shut the floodgates of inter-imperialist war is evermore apparent.

Michael McFaul, former amerikan ambassador to Russia under Obama, took to twitter to rail against the claim that amerikan interference in the affairs of sovereign states is at all relevant to the discussion of alleged Russian “meddling” in the 2016 presidential elections.

In what may appear to the average westerner as an uncharacteristic change in tone, the Taliban has issued an open letter directly to the amerikan people calling for immediate peace negotiations, and citing the long list of u.$. crimes in the country.

Happy Xmas, but the war is not over. Far from it, so that is one track that walmart can knock off its christmas playlist, that is, assuming they have not forgotten a war is going on. It is unfortunately easy to forget, after all, as the Afghanistan war becomes one of the least reported on […]

[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.

Concocted as a thoughtless jab at opposing press, the term “fake news” has become one of the most powerful political slogans of this year, in fact it was even rated 2017’s “word of the year” by dictionary publisher Collins. Despite finding its popularity as Trump’s infamous catch-phrase, the slogan has been given real power mostly […]

It is “Black Friday” in amerika, and while consumers enjoy 50% and 60% off new laptops and cell phones, the empire’s army is to thank. Afghanistan sits on an estimated $3 trillion reserve of untapped mineral resources, including vast amounts of lithium—estimated to be one of the largest reserves of lithium in the world. Lithium […]

It is Thanksgiving day in the united $tates, and among celebrations of imperial plenty, we must look to remind people at whose expense this country and its treasures were won.
