Terror Attacks in Paris: Western Imperialism Is to Blame

In the aftermath of the latest attacks on Paris that left more than 120 dead, the corporate, Eurocentric media of the West is in overdrive to scare working people into sacrificing their civil liberties and convince us of the need to launch more aggressive bombing raids, with the possibility of deploying troops, in Iraq and Syria to defeat the Islamic State (ISIS). The attacks reek of a false flag operation by French security forces, but even if the attacks were indeed the work of ISIS, the attacks are nevertheless the inevitable response… Read More

On the Expanding War on Terror – Statement by the Communist Party of Canada

From People’s Voice A statement on recent developments by the Central Executive Committee of the Communist Party of Canada that I assisted in writing.

Attack on Paris a Direct Consequence of Western Imperialism

The tragic shooting in Paris of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which published caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed in 2011, that left 12 people dead is a direct consequence of Western imperialism’s interventions in the Middle East.

Attacks such as the shooting in Paris, the September 11th attacks on New York (if we are to believe the dubious official story of… Read More
