From 'good guys' to ruthless extremists: How Washington & allies supported jihadists in Syria Throughout the bloody Syrian conflict that has gone on for almost 9 years, the US has always found groups on the ground it could portray as "good guys" to push its own narrative. The groups, however, rarely fit that image. © Reuters / Molhem Barakat Militants entrenched in parts of the city were referred to solely as rebels fighting against the dictatorship The fact that they held local residents at gunpoint, deprived them of food and water, as well as forcibly prevented them from leaving (thus using them as human shields) were simply ignored Subscribe to RT newsletter to get stories the mainstream media won’t tell you

#ICYMI: US airstrikes increase in a secret, secret war in Somalia, and no one’s paying attention With so many little wars to keep track of, you probably haven’t noticed that the US has quietly been increasing its airstrikes against targets in Somalia. It seems few people in Washington have either. In recent months, dozens of Al-Shabaab terrorist suspects have been killed by American drones and planes in Somalia, reportedly thanks to a surplus becoming available from Syria However, in a familiar pattern, the US military has denied any civilians were harmed, while locals and aid agencies deny that denial For more, follow #ICYMI on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube

Ron Unz: Private Corporations Can Censor You Better Than the Government As most are surely aware, the last year or two has seen a growing crackdown on free speech and free thought across the Internet, with our constitutionally-protected First Amendment rights being circumvented through the agency of monopolistic private sector corporations such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Although as yet our government has not gained the power to ban discordant views nor punish their advocates, anonymous tech company censors regularly take these steps, seemingly based upon entirely opaque and arbitrary standards which lack any power of appeal.
