NATO vows to investigate leaks of their kiddie-porn…

Actually NATO/ISAF are vowing to investigate reports of civilian deaths, 64 (updated while I was typing earlier) in recent days. NATO, in their TYPICAL LYING MODE, said that their operations killed an unknown number of "insurgents". You know how the U.S. and NATO turn a civilian into an "insurgent"? THEY POP A BULLET INTO HIS SKULL. AND IF THE "INSURGENT" IS BEING NURSED AT HIS MOMMA'S BREAST THEY GET TWO "INSURGENTS" WITH ONE BABYKILLING BULLET. Does that sound unnecessarily harsh? Hmm? To borrow a trench expression from another long-ago war being fought for the same God-Damned imperial cause, was it "over the top"? Ask yourselves this question, M'kay? IF THE LYING BASTARDS DON'T KNOW HOW MANY "INSURGENTS" THEY KILLED, THEN THEY ALSO WOULD NOT KNOW THEIR NAMES, AGES, POLITICAL STATUS OR WHETHER THEY WERE ACTUALLY INSURGENTS, NOW GOD-DAMN WOULD THEY, M'kay?" 23112

De Gaulle urges resistance in occupied France, Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan

June 18 marked the 70th anniversary of the Free-French General de Gaulle's famous 1940 radio address when he urged occupied France to resist because victory over their invaders would be inevitable. Does the western media commemorate de Gaulle's message without an inkling of irony?   Of course, today's occupied peoples cannot be offered the same assurance, that help is on its way. Just as Europe was overwhelmed by Hitler's superior force, de Gaulle knew that US industry would trump that. There will be no white knight to rescue Iraq and Afghanistan, but "L'Appel du 18 Juin," celebrated in 2010, reaffirms every people's right to resist foreign invaders. And not nonviolently. 18267

Give this lackey a new directive

BagnewsNotes has juxtaposed two photos of African colonialism. One taken more than a century ago shows a white bwana being ferried by two porters, the second is the recent image at left. The difference is that today's servants are trusted with weapons because they have to double as security, the continent being more dangerous now than when it was darkest Africa. According to photographer Paolo Woods, the colonial industrialist beneath the umbrella, stands before a 544 villa development in Nigeria, built on the Lekki Peninsula to suit Chevron Oil. For this go-round of postcards from the outlands, could anti-imperialist venture capitalists raise funds to give these Nigerian servants more than pieces of silver? The-world-is-watching age of the internet could offer these henchmen several times more their pay to gun down the light-skinned slave masters point-blank, instead of defending them against Nigeria's oppressed victims.

Insurgents, prairie dogs and Laser Tag

I remember discovering the difference between target shooting and Laser Tag. At a firing range you could look calmly down your gun sight and concentrate without distraction. Same with hunting. But Laser Tag, Paintball, or the doubtlessly misnomered Airsoft, let you experience what it's like to be shot at. Who would believe aiming a gun is so different under fire? 4299

Mentally challenged unfit for insurgency

US disinformation forces in Iraq pointed recently to an insurgency so in its last throes, that it was desperate enough, and dastardly, sure enough, to press mentally retarded girls into service as suicide bombers. Soon enough our military was forced to recant that report. The young Iraqi women may have been bipolar, or depressed, but they didn't have Down Syndrome, as cranial deformities caused by the bomb blasts had led the US forensics to conjecture. But the false accusation had its desired effect and there was worldwide condemnation of the Iraqi resistance. This story has irked me in both incarnations. 2707
