Disappointingly but expectedly, the vast majority of the analysts and pundits within the alternative media RIGHTLY criticized President Supercilious Orange’s illegal aggression against Syria but FAILED MISERABLY to analyze why he carried out this attack to begin with. And then there is the minority of analysts and pundits who have despicably suggested a theory of Trump-Putin-Assad collusion in the strike to get the Tangerine Terrorist’s domestic opposition off his back–an asinine suggestion if there ever was one considering this very same opposition, while gleefully welcoming the assault on Syrian sovereignty, are now clamoring that it “wasn’t enough” and “more must be done” in the name of “regime change”. They too have completely missed the 800-pound gorilla in the room demanding more than a pound of Gentile flesh with its bunches of bananas. That massive, bloodthirsty primate of course is the usurping Zionist entity. Was there ever really a doubt? Indeed, the Tangerine Terrorist known as Donald Trump bombed Syria for the exact same reason that every previous US head of state has ever bombed any (and every) other country in the Arab-Islamic world: ‘Israel’. The evidence of this being the handiwork of Empire Judaica is both copious and blatant, which makes the misfiring of the aforementioned commentators so dubious.

I was only 10 years old when my Bedstuy, Brooklyn neighborhood was lit ablaze by the classic joint “Victory” and I heard legend Biggie Smalls spit the following bars: “… Used to call me fatso/Now you call me Castro/My rap flow’s, militant…” I remember asking all the old heads on my block who “Castro” was, thinking he was some Nostrand Avenue OG so fearsome and slick that he was never caught by “the authorities”. And to my surprise, when a gentleman put me on game–a Cuban brother who was down with the 1959 Revolution and wanted to go home but ended up getting pinched for gun-running–that’s actually ***EXACTLY*** who he was, albeit in an entirely different setting. This man who the Notorious B.I.G. name-dropped was indeed an OG, but a Cuban not a Brooklynite, and he was indeed as hardcore, slippery, fiery and brilliant as they come, but the “authorities” he defied weren’t Blue Bacon and Feds but the American regime, especially its CIA, the usurping ‘Israeli’ entity and the global Zio-Imperialist system at large. And from this moment forward, I, like y’all, and not millions or even tens of millions but HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of other Moustazafeen (oppressed ones) worldwide, was infatuated with, in awe of, and inspired by this sky-toppling giant known as Castro.

Comandante Hugo Chavez, the liberator of Venezuela and unifier of Latin America, should’ve been 62 years old today. But instead his life was taken by the US and ‘Israel’ with what the Bolivarian Venezuelan government called a “cancer implant”. Getting infected by the Zio-Yankees with some kind of biological weapon was something that Hugo spoke of openly, as well as the Mossad trying to kill him, so this shouldn’t come as some sort of astonishment. Quite to the contrary, it should make the fire in our hearts against his murderers blaze that much brighter and our commitment to defending Hugo’s legacy of Bolivarianism that much firmer. To say that we miss him isn’t just an understatement but almost an insult, as it is more like we ache for his presence. If only the Benevolent Bull of Barinas was here, and healthy, the US-Zionist counterrevolution we’re now seeing regionwide wouldn’t be rapidly advancing in its destructiveness but dead in the water. Continue reading Comandante Chavez Would’ve Been 62 Today and Damn It Do We Miss Him So!

Alhamdulillah. “Globalized Yemen”, the fourth and final single off my #Yemen album Felicity Of The Oppressed, is now available. Hard to describe how proud I am of this song and how much it means to me, as it was produced by my late homie Jamal Dubois (Metal Gear Solid), one of the last beats he made prior to passing almost nine years ago. Could never bring myself to write a full piece to it, scribbling only various things over the years, because it was too painful but after hearing it in the midst of the Saudi aggression against Yemen, the words just gushed out like a lava stream from a volcano. It’s a flat-out epic instrumental and it brought the lyrical best out of me. This joint exemplifies everything that Ansarullah and the Yemeni people are and just how important their struggle is in a worldwide context. The Houthis and their comrades are like the Algerians who fought French colonialism, the DPRK, the Palestinian Resistance, Hizbullah, the Vietnamese Resistance, the Iraqi Mouqawamah, the Iranian revolutionaries led by Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.) and more. They all get shouted out here… Even got some 9/11 truth on the joint! Barely anybody is speaking about Yemen, its suffering and its victories, but that doesn’t matter… ‘Cause Haqq is Haqq and it is beyond critical for the triumphs of the Yemeni people to be globalized. So… Y’all know the deal. Throw it in your whips or your ‘phones and let it BLAST like a Striking Star missile!

As the now almost four-year-long Syrian Civil War continues, the full extent of North Korea’s influence in Syria remains seen every day.
Pyonygang and Damascus’ warm relations have led Syria to make several acquisitions of North Korean weaponry in the past. While the Syrian Civil War rages on, the Assad regime, the Islamic State and other factions continue to use much of this equipment in the conflict.
Perhaps the most notable impact of the DPRK’s arms industry on Syria can be found in Syria’s once enormous tank fleet. Namely, the DPRK upgraded hundreds of Soviet-made T-54 and T-55 tanks for Syria in the late ’70s and early ’80s, with some even seeing use in the 1982 Lebanon War.
Although the entire T-54 fleet (including the examples upgraded by North Korea) was presumably retired years ago, the T-55s certainly were not and nowadays a tank spotted in the northern half of Syria shows marks of the DPRK’s military influence more often than not. The T-54s themselves were stored in depots for most of the civil war, but as more and more armor has been destroyed and shortages grow, an increasing number are being brought back into service.

Pyongyang refused to kowtow when asked if it was behind a massive cyberattack against Sony Pictures, telling the world to “wait and see.” The hack came a month before Sony releases a comedy film centered on an attempted assassination of Kim Jong-un.
“The hostile forces are relating everything to the DPRK (North Korea). I kindly advise you to just wait and see,” a spokesman for North Korea’s UN mission told Reuters when asked about a cyberattack against the studio’s computer network.
Pyongyang frequently refers to the United States and South Korea as “hostile forces,” the agency reports. Continue reading ‘Wanna kill Kim?’ DPRK isn’t denying hack in revenge for Sony hasbara flick
Pyongyang is modernizing once obtained decommissioned Soviet diesel submarine capable of carrying ballistic missiles either for active service or as a test bench for constructing a similar sub of its own, South Korean government sources say.
North Korea “imported a Soviet-era Golf-class diesel submarine and modified it,” Yonhap news agency has reported, citing a government source. Continue reading DPRK launches upgraded Soviet-era ballistic missile submarine – report
