On October 25, 1983, the US launched the invasion of the Caribbean island of Grenada, codenamed Operation Urgent Fury. On that day, US forces bombed a mental hospital near St. George's, the Grenadian capital. Canada's Maclean's Magazine reported that the strike killed 47 people.

Golpe de Estado en Sudán🇸🇩, tercer país más grande de África, salida al Mar Rojo (estratégico) produce petróleo y una amplia gama de productos agrícolas, lo más llamativo es que al igual que Guinea Conakry el principal socio comercial es China; ¡no olvides que hay CRISIS en EEUU!

Ex-senior CIA officer Douglas London says US armed & trained a "rather corrupt, disjointed, largely external opposition" in Syria. Makes sense that they were "largely external." How many people actually living in Syria want to destroy it, and live under sectarian death squads?

The US rogue regime will bomb your country into oblivion, destroy civilian infrastructure, then impose a medieval blockade and illegal sanctions to destroy the economy and starve everyone -- but hey, at least it will use the proper pronouns for its victims
Today on International Pronouns Day, we share why many people list pronouns on their email and social media profiles. Read more here on @ShareAmerica: go.usa.gov/xMzhX.

If you resist a US invasion of your country, it's "terrorism" If you violate illegal US sanctions, it's "money laundering" If you respond to a US military exercise off your coast, it's "aggression" In its "rules-based order," the US global dictatorship makes all the rules
American officials think that when their soldiers are met with violence while invading other countries it’s “terrorism”. Still trying to wrap my head around this logic.

I wrote about last week's summit of the Nonaligned Movement in Belgrade, as well as NAM's origins in the Asian-African Conference in Bandung in 1955, and whether there's potential for a "new Nonaligned Movement" given the growing bipolarity in the world balkanist.net/back-to-the-bl…
