“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”  -- William Casey, former director of the CIA, upon being asked what the goal of the agency was (in 1981).

The US military has unleashed a wave of attacks on the Houthi Rebels of Yemen after the group launched missiles of their own in the Arabian and Red Sea. In a statement, the US military's Central Command said they had taken out seven radar sites where the Houthis had been operating. They said: “These radars allow the Houthis to target maritime vessels and endanger commercial shipping." It is not yet clear whether any Houthi personnel were killed or injured as a result of the strikes.

Two different articles penned by Luke Coffey, a senior fellow at Washington-based Hudson Institute and Anatolii Petrenko, Ukrainian ambassador in Saudi Arabia should be shocking for anyone who understands Washington and its NATO ally’s geopolitical game-plan, which is precisely designed to intensify and solidify West’s dominance in the world with special emphasis on oil-rich Arab countries, as those have always been seen by the military industrial complex and its purpose-serving elements within governments as cash cow.

In his article titled – “Time for US to end the delays on arming Kyiv” Luke Coffey wrote, “President Biden needs to end the delays and understand that arming Ukraine to win, and not just to survive, is the fastest way to bring this war to an end”.

On the other hand, Ukrainian envoy Anatolii Petrenko in another article titled – “Why summit is Switzerland is so important for global peace” wrote, “Saudi Arabia strongly supports Ukraine politically and practically in restoring our territorial integrity and sovereignty. The Saudi position was of special value across the entire process of security consultations conducted in Copenhagen, Jeddah, Malta and Davos.

The suppressive effect of SARS-CoV-2 spike on p53-dependent gene activation provides a potential molecular mechanism by which SARS-CoV-2 infection may impact tumorigenesis, tumor progression and chemotherapy sensitivity. In fact, cisplatin-treated tumor cells expressing spike S2 were found to have increased cell viability as compared to control cells. Further observations on γ-H2AX expression in spike S2-expressing cells treated with cisplatin may indicate altered DNA damage sensing in the DNA damage response pathway. The preliminary observations reported here warrant further studies to unravel the impact of SARS-CoV-2 and its various encoded proteins including spike on pathways of tumorigenesis and response to cancer therapeutics».

This is the Abstract of a study by Shengliang Zhang (Laboratory of Translational Oncology and Experimental Cancer Therapeutics, Warren Alpert Medical School, Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, USA) and Wafik S. El-Deiry just published in pre-print on BioRxiv (link in the sources) that has discovered yet another component related to SARS-Cov-2 that can promote cancer.

What will happen in the Iranian underground bunkers of nuclear production Natanz and Fordow, impenetrable even to powerful missiles, following the “secret countermeasures” that Tehran has declared to adopt?

What will happen in response to the IAEA resolution, the International Atomic Energy Agency, imposed by Western countries in a logic of intimidation against the government of Iran, which recently lost its president Ebrahim Raisi in an accident over which suspicion hovers of sophisticated sabotage?

There will certainly be an increase in the levels of security protection of the plants but there could be the similar response already adopted by Tehran in January 2020 after the killing of General Qasem Soleimani, commander of the Quds Forces, a special unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC or Pasdaran).

Henry Kissinger’s quote released by Wikileaks, “The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer,” likely brought a smile to his legions of elite media, government, corporate and high society admirers. Oh that Henry! That rapier wit! That trademark insouciance!

It is unlikely, however, that the descendants of his more than 6 million victims in Indochina, and Americans of conscience appalled by his murder of non-Americans, will share in the amusement. His illegal and unconstitutional actions had real-world consequences: the ruined lives of millions of Indochinese innocents in a new form of secret, automated U.S. executive warfare. (Read Branfman’s extended related essay on Kissinger.)

Kissinger has a history of saying outrageous things that reveal a dark callousness and hostility to the lives of innocent civilians. Here’s a sampling:

A web of notorious elements comprising journalists, writers, think-tanks, NGOs, newspapers and media outlets are running cruel propaganda against India with the agenda of destabilizing the country by spreading seeds of hatred within people. One of the prominent platforms in this vicious agenda is Equality Labs, which claims to be a progressive organization “to combat caste discrimination”, was founded by a Dalit techie and activist named Thenmonzhi Soundararajan, born and brought up in the United States.

While Equality Labs has been operating since 2016, it was registered only in 2022 as Equality Labs LLC., in Delaware (March 2022, registration number 202251715748) and in California in July 2022. Founder of Equality Labs, Thenmonzhi Soundararajan was working on grants from Open Society Institute – an organization funded by George Soros.

It may be mentioned here that Equality Labs has members with questionable backgrounds and affiliations, which include Sharmin Hossain, a Bangladeshi American who served as the Political Director of the organization. Sharmin is the daughter of Mohamed Hossain, a Bangladesh national and a former socialist student organizer with Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD). She also is the 2015 Open Society Youth Exchange Fellow under which she founded the Bangladeshi Historical Memory Project.

NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft is back in action and conducting normal science operations for the first time since the veteran probe began spouting gibberish at the end of 2023. All four of the spacecraft's remaining operational instruments are now returning usable data to Earth, according to NASA. Some additional work is needed to tidy up the effects of the issue. Engineers need to resynchronize the timekeeping software of Voyager 1's three onboard computers to ensure that commands are executed at the correct times. Maintenance will also be performed on the digital tape recorder, which records some data from the plasma instrument for a six-monthly downlink to Earth.
