Don’t just commemorate Martin Luther King, avenge him

Reclaim MLK, yada yada. Yes, reclaim his radical persona from the academics and religious leaders who have painted his example to be an uncontroversial conformist. Commemorate MLK, reclaim him, fine. Wouldn't that begin, at a minimum, by deligitimizing his assassins? How universal is recognition of Martin Luther King if the government agencies which killed him are unaccountable and still broadly in charge?

“Jaber was sleeping near his car when the missile arrived. 3 people killed.”

DELIVERY CONFIRMATION for drones! You can get it for free with the Metadata iPhone app. The following notice arrived this morning, March 3, postmarked Yemen: Jaber was sleeping near his car when the missile arrived. 3 people killed. The blurb is as much as the USG knows, based on preliminary reports from the ground, and highlights what little they know of their intended victim. It's also based on the POV of the targeting pilot whose job it is to study the slow-mo video of the warhead's GoPro camera. Extreme Extrajudicial Assassination --Radically illegal too!   UPDATE: Mar 3, Yemen "The second drone strike of the day killed 1 person in Abyan."

US wars: You win some, you win some

JULY 18-- Syrian rebels led by CIA and US special forces were able to assassinate three senior officials of President Bashar Assad's regime, targeted by NATO and the UN for Obama's TM Change, which we now can believe means "Regime Change". But news headlines today also tell of 24 NATO fuel tankers set alight in Afghanistan, by a Taliban insurgency of undetermined US backing, of course US contractors now get to sell NATO replacement tankers, AND elsewhere in occupation news, US auditors report $8 billion squandered in Iraq, although total spent, minus reconstruction achieved, probably yields far more billions than that. Meaning more growth opportunity for the US war industry, at Cost Plus. Unless cost squandered means plus should be refunded.

US senator says bomb makers and their associates should be killed forthwith

Said Senator Dianne Feinstein to Fox News about an al-Qaeda suspect in Yemen: "I am hopeful that we will be able to, candidly, kill this bomb maker and kill some of these other associates. This, about a certain Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri about whom we have only intelligence hearsay to go on, based on an undetectable bomb, on which they say they detect his forensic signature, and about his friends, members they say of AL-QAEDA OF THE SAUDI PENINSULA or some such. What this means, for employees of GENERAL DYNAMICS or RAYTHEON OF SOUTHERN COLORADO for example, is that you don't even have to possess a factory security ID to be suspected by Yemen, or our other Muslim adversaries, of making bombs that terrorize their innocents. Allah forbid they should commandeer armed drones, in preemptive self defense, to kill you and your now pants-pissing friends, candidly.   And let's be realistic, the BOMB MAKERS OF AMERICA is an awfully big fraternity at this point.

Colonel Gaddafi meets his killer-to-be. Would you have shaken that hand? I’m talking about Obama’s.

Can you match this for a haunting image? There's Colonel Gaddafi and President Obama, two years ago. I suppose the Tea Party would pretend they were pals. Why wouldn't they be, both are misunderstood weirdos, both were espoused rescuers of their respective peoples. Where similarities end, the rivalry is epic. One the protector of Africa and the unaligned world, the other its despoiler. One perhaps rendered timid with age, bombed into submission, his own daughter killed by an extrajudicial US assassination attempt, the other his future killer. I look at this image and reflect on the author of the Little Green Book, ideology for the Libyan renaissance, whose recent pitiless murder was videotaped and televised from all angles. Others might look more soberly at President Barack Obama, skilled comfort giver, who we've come to see shows no reticence for killing thousands sight unseen, but here he's looking his mark straight in the face. What's Obama saying with that handshake? I'm not sure Obama's eye contact is going to have the effect it used to.

Execution of anti-Western al-Gaddafi suggests he wasn’t strongman enough

I know very little about the dark side of Colonel Gaddafi. I've never seen him outside the filter of Western media. For all I know he emptied baby incubators, hid WMDs and ran rape camps. He wasn't responsible for Lockerbie, the CIA knows that much. The deposed leader's execution yesterday was nothing to celebrate. It was sad, brutal and shrouded in mystery. Hugo Chavez hailed Gaddafi as a fallen hero, and I've never had occasion to disagree with Chavez. Nor have I ever taken issue with George Galloway and he hated Gaddafi. Probably the aging revolutionary was both heroic and corrupt, eccentric and lunatic. Gaddafi was the most powerful protector of Africa, and the only leader to have apologized for Arab role in African slave trade. Naturally he had to be booted from the club. 28700

The Memorial Park Grenade and Drugs

The CS Fuzz Dept isn't squeaking very loudly about the grenade they found at Prospect Lake a couple of days ago. There's ways to make a booby trap from a hand grenade, take one and set it down, prop a rock onto it and set the rock on a small stick, so the rock will fall off if the stick is disturbed, lots of ways to make the stick fall out. Test the rig to make sure. assemble it and extract the safety pin then leave, and never go back. That doesn't seem to be the case with the Lake Grenade. But it's Apparently a U.S. Army hand grenade of which there are several types, standard enough in triggering style, weight and size of the device, many made by an Israeli based firm called LGB Ltd. The cops would have a database on who supplies them. NOW... Drugs. 22986

Our Phine Phreaky Phriend Pastor Phred Phelps Praises AZ shooting

Just when you thought that ALL the roaches had crawled out of their cracks in the wall on this...   Now, what do you suppose would happen if another group, say a more left-leaning group, wanted to give the American Child the Right Wing murdered an Honor Guard? Showed up to give like Military Honors to Christina Green, age 9, in a non-intrusive ceremony, with a 21-gun salute (actually, 7 rifles fired simultaneously three times) And let's then say that one of the Honor Guard became so Unhinged at the massive hatred spewing from the Godless Lips of Pastor Phred? And, as soldiers often do, takes aim.... 21371

Palin signed off on Giffords shooting, grizzly lipstick plot to direct gunmen

AZ representative Gabrielle Giffords was one of twenty crosshairs on Sarah Palin's checklist directing political assassinations.   Whether Jared Lee Loughner was a lone gunman, or in a TP or al-Qaeda cell, shouldn't the DOJ investigate the grizzly mastermind who is inciting these acts? While they're at it, Vice President Biden for illegally targeting Wikileaks' Julian Assange, and Boss Obama who commands extrajudicial assassinations via military/CIA drones. If this was a GPS map of Pakistan the "unhinged shooters" would be Predator Drone operators. 21378

Wikileaks spills “Afganistan War Logs” detail Task Force 373, US death squad

You thought death squads were only for banana republics? Meet covert US Task Force 373 which circulates in Afghanistan with a 2,058 name "Kill or Capture List" killing all witnesses, even policemen, who get in their way. The sudden transparency is due the AFGHANISTAN WAR LOGS, courtesy at last from Wikileaks. While dodging US DHS agents, Wikileak's Julian Assange was able to coordinate a clever self-checking joint release of the documents via the Guardian UK, Der Spiegel, and the New York Times. The events reported aren't accusations, they're the soldiers' own records. 19168

Problem solving by U.S. assassination

Word is out, confirming Seymore Hersh's alarming report of last year, about the Cheney/Bush special forces tasked with assassinating terrorism suspects. Where others do it, such paramilitary raids are called "death squads." While their existence is being admitted, Congress is upset they weren't told sooner about the extra-judicial homicide plans. But didn't President Bush put us all on notice in his 2006 State of the Union Address? What did you think he was snickering about when he said:   "All told, more than 3,000 suspected terrorists have been arrested in many countries. And many others have met a different fate. Let's put it this way: They are no longer a problem to the United States and our friends and allies." 8221

No Country For Porch Monkeys

The New York Post cartoon conveys a single message, because it certainly wasn't humor. This is a warning for President Obama, drawn in the form of a thought balloon for public consumption, which has been floated before. White masters kill naughty blackeys. White supremacists hunt upstart niggers. Xenophobic kooks hurt people who don't look like them. Cops kill ordinary African Americans with complete impunity. 6628

Bigger gun nuts taking aim at Obama

Just what is the NRA hoping to convey with this ad? Does this depict a typical gun enthusiast? It sure resembles a Cracker out of Deliverance, armed to the teeth, looking to hunt someone down.   I read: PWT with HPR on ATV waiting for MLK. 5304

New evidence places 3 CIA operatives at Robert Kennedy assassination

Three anti-Castro CIA covert-ops are ID'd in new pictures and film footage on the scene at the Ambassador Hotel, including Robert Morales who was already known to have bragged about having attended to JFK assassination as well.   See the 16 minute BBC news segment at InformationClearinghouse.
