Just another normal day in USA-run Dictatorship Honduras

Yesterday was a selection day in the USA-run coup made Honduras. Top Honduran parties chose presidential candidates ....But what did the day really look like though? See Death Squads, Swastikas and "Medieval Methods" of Torture Honduras Post-Coup Elections by CHARLES HINTON for a better glimpse of life in Tegucigalpa, the Honduran capital.

US military working with Honduran dictatorship according to The New York Times

'Lessons from Iraq and the War Against Drugs in Honduras- The New York Times in its May 5th edition published an article that stated in its first paragraph: The United States military has brought lessons from the past decade of conflict to the drug war being fought in the wilderness of Miskito Indian country, constructing this remote base camp with little public notice... 33755

US military out of Honduras now!

The US has spread its drug war killings from its own inner cities into Peru and Colombia and then north into Mexico and now back once again into Central America as well. The US military is not going to stop drug trafficking and should get out of all of Latin America now. Why are Americans silent about these wars and supportive of military interventionism? Americans get what they sow.... which is a Police and Military State society everywhere. Honduras protest over (US DEA agent) shootings (of Hondurans inside Honduras)

How come Pottery Barn rules don’t apply to Haiti?

When Tony posted nearly three years ago (!) about how shocking conditions in Haiti had become, it was a magnet for people saying the starving kids pictures (from Medicins sans frontiers, internationally respected medical aid agency, just not so much here in America) were recycled pictures from Ethiopia 3, 2 and one decade ago. Then when that was refuted, and before they raised that Stupid Response again, the people of Haiti were blamed for their own misfortunes. As though their LEADERS had actually been empowered by popular vote instead of installed, against the expressed will of the People, by and for the profit of American Corporate Hegemony. Alternating with French Hegemony until the AmeriCorp bought out the French. We broke it, we supposedly bought it, right? That's the one of the irRationale for staying in Iraq and Afghanistan. (rationale is both plural and single, I checked, you didn't, kiss off) Of course, it's not the American Corporations who are Paying the bills "we" ran up by breaking all the pottery, although they seem to be getting quite a lot of public funding to manipulate the Public Army and the Public intelligence community and the public "rebuilding" campaign, which mostly consists of taking

Freedom & duress NOT the same thing

A gentleman wrote earlier that Ireland signed a paper partitioning the Nation, and likewise, Scotland and Ireland had signed papers joining their people to the United Kingdom. And that therefore Scots and Irish Separatists are breaking a treaty and how very dare they do so, it's dishonorable etc.   He was too busy reviling me personally to revile them but that is the gist of his words. 19256

Panama Banana say that three times real fast…

But there was a strike against the Government run Banana Industry which unlike the traditional "Banana Republic" isn't a government owned by the Banana Industry. Close enough though, they're bought and Paid (on long credit terms) for by American Fat-Cats who believed and their descendants still do that their money and American (not Rich) soldiers providing the Assassinations necessary to maintain that money entitles them to own the whole world. Especially those nations physically closest to our Arbitrarily assigned borders. By the way, Corporate Warfare and Corporate Welfare are two of the key components of Fascism. The government forces attempted to take the Union leaders prisoner, and killed two union members and wounded 120 others (by Government count) three of whom are in hospitals in comas. And under arrest. Probably for violently attacking a Police Billy Club or Gun Muzzle with their foreheads. Repeatedly throwing their heads under the stomping Jack-boots of the Police even after being handcuffed. The workers, Indigenous people mostly, (that's code for "held in perpetual povertyslavery on the basis of Race" by the way) responded by taking 4 of the cops prisoner. Only the Right Wing code for that is "hostages". One of the causes of

Oderint dum metuant, crucifixion … Spartacus and Dracula

Since the opinion has been foisted onto us that we should basically DEATH DEATH KILL THEM ALL!! BWAAAHAAAAHAAAHAAA! those who Dare to oppose our Mighty Empire... And a comment from a lady who is upset that we, the people, rejected her Emperor Bush last year about this time... thus, we and not her Imperial Overlords are responsible for the shootings at Ft Hood... 11219

Major Hasan, convicted without trial, and let the Mad Hate Fest Begin!

See, this can be used to justify Racist (mostly) attacks on Americans who are Muslim... and then they can use the War on Drugs and the "insurgency" where the People of Honduras are rejecting the U.S. Corporate puppet dictatorship as an excuse to Kill American Catholics with Spanish names... Oh, yeah, they ALREADY HAVE by murdering the American Raul Flores and his American Child Brisea, age 9, this spring in Arivaca Arizona. That was our local Friends the Minutemen, or merely the Southern Arizona branch thereof who say they follow the orders of the (Locally situated) National Leadership of their party. Oh, excusez vous, their "Army" of "patriots". 11186

US government continues its terrorist attacks against Iran

Iranian commanders assassinated. The US government, under multiple administrations has such a long record for using terrorism throughout multiple regions of the world that it is actually incredible that it has the gall to proclaim that it is now engaged in a 'global war against terrorism', even as it uses terrorism in areas like Somalia, Honduras, and Iran, not to mention other countries. Open up your eyes, my fellow Americans. Your own government is a terrorist government itself! 10185

Top 10 secret armies of the CIA

Found this on the web, will try to retrace provenance, worth a read: The United States have a well known history of providing military support to countries in need. But from time to time, the US Government has provided secret forces. While many are successful, there have also been a number of failures. This is a list of the ten top secret armies of the CIA. 7782

Rock Creek Free Press available in COS

The Rock Creek Free Press is available online, but if you want it in print, the DC monthly is available in Colorado Springs at the Bookman, 3163 W. Colorado. The September issue features a speech given by legendary Australian journalist John Pilger on July 4th in San Francisco. 8632

National Assembly is antiwar exclusively

Reports are emerging from July's National Assembly, the vital effort to unite antiwar forces into a common movement. Delegates from the major peace organizations hammered out a strategy to address Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Palestine. Missing from the consensus? Nonviolence, and good riddance. It goes without saying that humanitarian activists are peaceful. To legislate a dogma of non-confrontation plays right into the hands of the authoritarians. Here's the official report: 8263

2p, 2p and Honduras… and Mexico… and Nicaragua… and…

I don't know if I've published this here or not or how I packaged it. But for background, the "p" stands for "piastre" a South VietNamese coin that was worth a little less than a quarter of a U.S. penny. This was the "Great Free Market Opportunity" our government was sending people to fight and die to defend. The way I heard it on some occasions it's used to condemn the VietNamese people."How nasty and vile and filthy they are" for living in such poverty. 8153

Cuba declines OAS offer of Trojan Horse

Over US objections, the Organization of American States (OAS, OEA) voted to invite Cuba back into the fold, from which it had been expelled in 1962 for hanging with Communists. Cuba's reply? No thanks! Although Cuba's acceptance by fellow nations was hailed a victory, Fidel Castro wrote: "It is naive to think that the good intentions of one president justifies the existence of a body that... supported... neoliberalism, drug trafficking, military bases and economic crises." 7970

Benazir Bhutto of Team America

Why was Benazir Bhutto's return to Pakistan feted with bombs? Whether the bombers were Pakistani security forces or Talibani "terrorists" or western black-ops (each faction by coincidence also fingered for 9/11), they targeted Bhutto because she represents US interests for Pakistan.   Our media says she heralds Democracy, their corporate owners know the truth is Capitalism of the most sordid exploitive kind. The press corps traveled with Bhutto on her much hyped homecoming from self-exile. Did their emotion-drenched personal interest leave any doubt their girl's a member of the American-Dream team? 2045

How the US and its allies stole children in El Salvador

Many Americans are somewhat aware that the Argentinian allies of the US once stole babies from mothers that they had imprisoned, tortured, and then murdered. Those babies were then given to families of the leaders of the Argentinian military and government itself! This is an international scandal that still effects how many people perceive Argentinian society to this very day. It is a horrible legacy of the Dirty War that the US and its ally, the Argentinian government, waged on the Latin American Left. 1194
