US taunts Syria with chemical weapons game: stop hitting yourself, stop hitting yourself!

How does America know that Bashar Assad is planning a chemical attack against his own people? The same way we knew last time, because 'twas America who done it. And it's the same refrain the US has used everytime. Saddam launched a chemical attack against his own people. We're worried that Saddam will resort to a chemical attack against his own people. Though of course, no trace of chemical weapons was found. Surprising that, because America HAD SOLD HIM chemical weapons. Same in Assad's case. This time they're already in our possession. We have our covert proxies use them on absolutely whoever (Assad's own people) and blame it on Assad.

Israel attacks Syria! Surely Syria will be accorded the right to defend itself

It's the pretext Israel uses whenever it strikes Gaza or Lebanon or European cafes or US ships: the right to defend itself. In fact the right to do it preemptively is how Israel justifies bombing Iran or assassinating Iranian scientists. So where do the rights of others begin? Has not Syria a right to defend her lands and people against this unprovoked attack? Is Israel so cynical to pretend it doesn't have to declare war on its neighbors because it shares "most belligerent status" with all of them? --even, let's add, with half its citizens. Of course the US stands with Israel, they share a foreign policy of illegal, preemptive, and/or covert war. No doubt Israel has already calculated that Syria is in no position to retaliate. All Western powers knwo enough to only strike the defenseless. Apparently Israel has grown impatient with the Western-backed attempted overthrow of strongman Assad and fears the astroturf public support will wane before regime change is achieved. Assassination, covert coups, wars of aggression, used to be illegal.

Police attack Occupy Oakland and Occupy Atlanta

Not so good news from Atlanta and Oakland where popo busted up the occupation with tear gas and swinging clubs. This in spite of the fact that no violent acts or threats of violence had come from the occupiers. I'll preface this next statement, because some on the MightMakesRight Wing don't have very good reading skills, Tear Gas is sometimes lethal just as Nerve Gas(es) are not universally lethal, many people have died from tear gas and many people have survived being gassed with The Other. It's not a question of whether Tear Gas is lethal but a mere question of relative lethality. Much like the difference between being shot with a .38 special and being shot with a 12 gauge shotgun and that relative to being shot several times with a belt fed machine gun. The Oakland PIGS, famous for hiring a white supremacist from the former Rhodesia who subsequently MURDERED an American Black Man, Oscar Grant, by shooting Mr Grant in the back while he was laying on the concrete.... Then let him get away with that murder through a deliberately botched investigation (Blue Wall)... 28792

So this Right Wing Wanker is claiming to have provoked a police assault on Occupy in DC.

And it appears he actually did so. In his words, to bring condemnation on the protesters. But since most of the people pepper-sprayed weren't protesters, this Wanker is actually claiming to have incited a riot, for political gain, in which civilians were injured. The dork is named Patrick Howley an assistant editor for The National Spectator, an online "news" blog with somewhat less credibility and editorial or should I say "idiotorial" standards than a supermarket tabloid. "conservative" of course. Put this picture up on his Facebook page. 28175

They hanged Pinocchio and let Gepetto walk… 12/30/2006

As is so often true in death penalty cases. From 1979 til 1991 he was propped up by mostly the Reagan Regime as a counter to the Iranian revolution. Who are also the chief "witnesses" against him in the matter of killing a few thousand Iraqi citizens. With their active involvement. Their active PAID involvement, because they a) don't work cheap and b) don't actually work. "They" being a cast of villains like Reagan, Bush the Elder, Ollie North, the Miami Cuban Cartel, Richard Secord, Donald Rumsfeld, Admiral Poindexter, traitors and murderers all. Selling stolen arms for stolen money and getting Americans killed in the process, like the Marines in Beirut. (Lt Col North, three words, Ollie... Semper... Fi... Bitch) They got several times as many people killed by their Other Puppets, like the Salvadoran death squads, the Contras, the Medellin Cartel, to bring more people into Capitalist Slavery in the name of "Freedom". And they're still sending their brainless minions to kill for their own profit. Any of y'all soldiers assigned to read our blog, dudes, get smart and desert. Split, boogie, depart, sortez... Get Out Of The Slaughter Machine. Your Military is owned by the same Rich Bitches who owned Saddam's

George Bush trusted and funded the Pakistan Military…

Even though they killed far more citizens of Pakistan than all resistance groups combined even if you count in the Chair Force Office Warriors with their drone strikes as Insurgent actions rather than Propping up the Pakistani Puppet. So, little recent (like, this morning) revelations that the compound taken out by the Navy SEALs was on a Pakistan Military Base, one thought being that our relationship with their Army should be re-evaluated. How honest and in depth is that revelation going to be? The Chimpleton and his not-as-stupid father had lots of contracts in oil-field construction and maintenance given to the bin Laden family, administered no doubt by Halliburton KBR. Their tame puppet military was given carte blanche to slaughter "their own" people, much like Saddam Hussein was given a similar license until his oil franchise invaded the Corporate Domain of another U.S. owned "sovereign" Puppet Dictator. The way the U.S. Army was given Carte Blanche to take out "their own people" if they happened to wear dark skin and have Native Tribal affiliations. The compound was described a few times as being a multi-million dollar affair. That would be big money anywhere, but in a country known for (American) Corporate Wage Slavery

Rule of law & American Exceptionalism

The extrem(ist)e lack of the first puts any claim of the latter as the very essence of arrogant falsehood. We're told that America, and ONLY America, actually deserves to run the entire world because we're better than them. What's that sound? Damn, I just heard every Right Wing Jingoist my-country-right-or-wrong, Love-it-or-leave-it, we're-fighting-for-your-freedom-of-speech-so-you-better-shut-your-cake-hole-or-we'll-shut-it-for-you "patriotic" TeaTard Racist closing his mind. They just snapped their minds shut simultaneously. with a deafening roar. Consider the case of one Luis Posada Carriles For those of our readers unfamiliar with the Castellano (Spanish) naming scheme, Carriles was his mother's maiden name. His surname is Posada. A terrorist paid by the U.S. Regime over decades to murder, to overthrow Democracy wherever it reared its lovely head. His CIA "handler" was one Donald Gregg, an American Coward who paid public money, without public oversight and, like fellow Terrorist George Bush Gregg was recently honored in Colorado Springs. Seems the local "conservatives" can't get enough of Babykilling Freaks. (They're hosting Sarah Palin later this month) 23691

Operation Iraqi Freedom To Say And Do Exactly What They’re Told

Apparently the Imperialists weren't lying when they said they were bringing American-style "freedoms" In Bahrain and in Iraq... where the Iraqi Puppet Government PIGS have used American style Police Tactics to break up demonstrations, including, with the United States "Freedom" Army standing ready to back them up if the Peasants took the upper hand, simply slaughtering protestors. Something the Colorado Springs Gestapo knows full well, beating and arresting peaceful marchers (mostly elderly and disabled) in the St Patricks Day Parade 2007 "Protesters took to the streets of Iraq again today, demanding the same reforms that have become common cause across the Arab world. But while most nations have chosen violence or empty promises (both of which the Maliki government has dabbled in) to answer these demands, Iraq is also taking a very American idea. On Wednesday the government announced a ban on protests in the capital city of Baghdad, saying that street vendors had complained it was hurting business. The answer was to sequester protesters into specially designated free speech zones. The US began using “free speech areas” to move political dissent away from public view, nominally for security reasons, and became extremely common starting in 2004, when both major party conventions herded protesters

Colo. College guest Donald Gregg: the man who hired the man who killed Che

He administered OPERATION PHOENIX during the Vietnam War, the CIA counterinsurgency operation which sought to pacify Vietnam with the targeted assassination of thousands of potential insurgents. For Vice President George H. W. Bush's office, he coordinated the funding of the illegal US covert war against Central America, aka, the IRAN-CONTRA scandal. Yes, he supervised both Felix Rodriguez and Luis Posada, each of CIA-state-sponsored-terrorism fame. But Colorado College introduced Donald P. Gregg only as former national security adviser and ambassador to Korea. And CC gave Gregg an honorary degree -- with not a peep from the know-nothings they laud as their exemplary students. 23604

Oil Company and Military “job creation” in the Springs..

Are going to go to... people who already work for the oil companies and the Military Industrial Complex. The (God this is a stupid term) Surge in employment is of the trickle down variety. Like the ghost of Reagan pissing on us in death the way he did in life. Let's dissect the Oil Jobs, yes? They've got a bunch of unemployed oil people. Fewer and fewer wells, more and more people who have experience and tenure, no need for Halliburton or BP to train people locally. We'll get jobs like More McDonalds, or Workin' at the Car Wash Blues, oh, and the oil and Military Industrial folks will bring their families so a portion of the New Jobs will be eaten up by them. Then there's what they'll be DOING. In the early 70s they tried this same shit, there were about a third as many people in the area, and still a water crisis. Since the Springs area feeds the watersheds that provide water to every where west of the Mississippi, that's a huge responsibility. Every drop of rain that falls here is already claimed a year or more in advance. The Shale Oil extraction process takes up a lot of

Western Capitalist Civilization So Very Superior it has to be explained with lies

After, of course, acknowledging the FACT that the so-called WMDs excuse was a blatant lie, Gordon Brown goes further by saying the "Operation Iraqi Freedom" bullshit was also a lie. The harshest part of it? The Right Wing Freaks STILL eat it up with a spoon and call it delicious. Like the Tea-Party. And insist that they're also "fighting for freedom" by Denying Health Care to Americans, a practice that would, in a truly civilized world, be called Murder. 15545

Senators Cornyn, Smith, Lieberman, Webb, McCain, not common criminals

They want war crimes trials, then book 'em. Senators John Cornyn, Lamar Smith, Joe Lieberman, Jim Webb and John McCain have mouthed off against bringing accused 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to trial in US civilian courts. They want Mohammed and his fellow detainees tried by military tribunals, which have already been condemned as violations of international law. So has voting to support the attack on Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantanamo, secret prisons, etc. 11462

Who killed Neda Agha-Soltan?

The video footage is shocking. An attractive young woman watching the demonstrations in Tehran is struck by a sniper's bullet and dies before several video cameras. The tragedy is projected unto Facebook and Youtube, with advocates hoping it will galvanize (American) public support for the brave reform movement in Iran. News accounts blame "Basij snipers" on the rooftops. Other protesters have been killed in confrontations with Iranian riot police, without the benefit of video witnesses, much like two million Iraqis, Afghans, Pakistanis et al. Poor 27-year-old bystander Neda Soltani stood at the quite improbable convergence of bullet and camera --correction-- cameras. I don't have to suggest the scene was staged; whether or not the triggerman was an American is immaterial. 8127

US gov finally murders ‘ghost detainee’ (POW) tortured by CIA for 7 1/2 years

Libya reports prison suicide of top Qaeda man this week. Translated form CIA Arabic speak, that means he was murdered. Sure... so much has changed with Obama in office! I'm being facetious here. This man was murdered simply because he knew too much about how the Bush Administration tortured POWs in order to try to get them to fabricate 'evidence' about a Saddam Hussein-al Qaeda connection to justify their illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq. 7742

UN Security Council and US government rubber stamp Sinhalese slaughter of Tamils in Sri Lanka

Like how the UN Security Council and the US government ONCE hid in the shadows egging on Saddam Hussein-led Iraq and its assault on Iran in previous times, today it is doing the same with the Sri Lanka Civil War. But Saddam Hussein couldn't get in the death blow against Iran that the Security Council lusted for on behalf of the US in the '80s. Sinhalese Sri Lanka is though against its Tamil opposition, and now the Security Council has come out of the shadows and is egging the final kill on. See Tamil Tigers urged to surrender (by UN Security Council) 7528

Cheney and other Perverted Torture Freak Scum…

There's a standard, a psychological finding used to determine when somebody is a serial killer, and determine whether he is worthy of the death penalty. The prosecution doesn't actually NEED it in many cases, but they always do the testing and make the determination. 7526

Nobama, Out of our country!

Seemingly unimpressed by CIC Barack Obama's recent 'surprise' visit to their country, tens of thousands of Iraqis today demonstrated against continued US military presence in their country in Baghdad's Firdous Square, where the statue of then-Iraqi president Saddam Hussein was pulled down on April 9, 2003. Iraqi protesters call for US exit

The BIG LIE, or just an extremely stupid lie to prep us for more war?

The Republicans justified the whole start of the so-called Global War on Terrorism (the invasion and occupation of Iraq) by claiming that we were all threatened by Weapons of Mass Destruction in the hands of sinister Mr Evil, Saddam Hussein, former ally of the US in trying to bring about regime change in Iran. That was their BIG LIE. But now the Democratic Party nitwits, headed up by Barack and Hee Haw Hillary, have a new BIG LIE missile aimed at us all... CORRECTION! ...it is merely an extremely stupid lie. Their lie is that Iran is trying to aim nuclear weapons at ...where? why at Europe! What an extremely stupid lie this one is, and as such... it will not sell war like the Republicans' BIG LIE once did. See Reuters report... Clinton says missile shield to protect (Europe) from Iran ... what a bunch of dumb donkeys!

Hysterical Revisionism Parte Veint..

Ok, so one of the first posts I made was on the subject of what I call amongst other things Jingoistic Bullshit. Like Ward Churchill getting fired and the suggestion being made by local Right Wing Freaks that he be prosecuted and even EXECUTED for teaching that the U.S. Army committed deliberate Extermination campaigns against Americans and used Biological Warfare in doing so. 6754

Israel bombs Gaza United Nations headquarters using White Phosphorus

The estimates of the property damage being done to the primarily refugee population of Gaza (75% of the 1.4 million enslaved in Israel's Gaza ghetto for the Palestinians) are now running into the Billions of Dollars, and this is an area that has an annual per capita income of less than $500/ year. The Israeli Vandals continued to destroy by dropping White Phosphorus bombs on the United Nations Headquarters there, blowing up the UN buildings and thousands of pounds of food supplies for those refugees. 6085
