Pandora’s box - by Ted Rudow III, MA
The Obama administration is considering a plan to increase the U.S. presence in Iraq by sending up to 500 more military personnel and establishing a new military base in Anbar Province. The United States already has about 3,000 troops, including trainers and advisers, in Iraq. The new forces would help train Iraqi forces in retaking the city of Ramadi, which fell to the self-described Islamic State last month.

American firepower - by Ted Rudow III, MA
The U.S. also imposes murderous sanctions upon Iraq, killing thousands of people every month and condemning most of the rest of the population to a miserable, disease-ridden, poverty-stricken. Although they profit, it possible for them to sell billions of dollars of weapons to the Saudis and the Kuwaitis, and station U.S. troops in the Mideast to “protect” them.

Global Rally against ISIS – for Kobanê – for Humanity! NOV. 01, 2014 - by Layla
The so-called international coalition to fight the ISIS, have not helped Kurdish resistance effectively despite witnessing the ongoing genocide committed against Kobanê. They have not fulfilled their real international legal obligations. Some of the countries in the coalition, especially Turkey, are among financial and military supporters of the ISIS terrorists in Iraq and Syria. Therefore a Global Rally against ISIS – for Kobanê – for Humanity is vital. If the world wants democracy i...

Turkey agrees to allow Peshmerga from Iraq into Kobane - by S
Turkey to allow Kurdish PUK troops from Iraq to pass Turkey and enter Kobane. YPG is not asking for this support. Indeed, it may turn into an occupation of revolutionary Kobane after ISIL has been kicked out, since Iraqi Kurdish PUK is not as left-leaning and democratic as the YPG. Kurdish militias in Iraq are unfortunately not revolutionary, which is why they enjoy endless US and EU support. PUK: Kurdish Patriotic Union.

Call to Donate Medical Aid to Kobane - by M
Kobane sorely needs medical supplies to maintain the defense of the city and many civilians. Doctors inside Kobane are fixing up people the best they can, including external fixation limbs broken by gunshot wounds, but still people are bleeding to death after reaching aid stations and while waiting at the border to be allowed to enter Turkey. IS also recently burned an entire supply warehouse belonging to a local Kurdish relief organization. We've formulated a list with suggested donations...

Down with the Imperialist War in Iraq and Syria! - by PCInt
In early August the American government decided to launch a limited “humanitarian action” – in the form of mass bombing! – in Iraq, after an international campaign to mobilize public opinion over the plight of the Yazidi and Christian minorities who have been threatened with “genocide” by the advance of Islamist rebels of “the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant” (better known by the acronym ISIS).

David Graeber on Rojava Revolution - Spanish Civil War of our age? - by S
If there is a parallel today to Franco’s superficially devout, murderous Falangists, who would it be but Isis? If there is a parallel to the Mujeres Libres of Spain, who could it be but the courageous women defending the barricades in Kobane? Is the world – and this time most scandalously of all, the international left – really going to be complicit in letting history repeat itself?

A kingdom was lost - by Ted Rudow III ,MA
It's incredible that the governments of the world are on track to invest nearly a trillion dollars a year in killing people. You can't tell me that that amount spent on weapons is for "defense," "self-protection," etc. It's mainly for the most lethal and advanced methods of slaughter and murder that money can buy!

The ways of war - by Ted Rudow III, MA
God hates war and the killing of the innocents. He hates to see His children harmed and destroyed. And you know what? So many of those dear ones in Iraq are His children. There are so many Christians there that this is a direct attack. This time the U.S. has gone too far!
