Barack’s tea party

Obama has lunch with 4 presidents. Well isn't that nice? I wonder what they discussed at the Barack's tea party? Did they all discuss how to better pacify Iraq, Somalia, Palestine, and Afghanistan? Did they discuss just how bloody they should make Gaza? What did the Peanut Man, Jimmy Carter have to say? Did he wear that big shit eating smile of his? 5942

UN Ambassador speaks of the hidden genocide against the Somali people

The UN envoy to Somalia, Ahmedou Ould Abdallah, has said there is a "hidden genocide" taking place in the country. Left unsaid is that it is the United States of America that is responsible for this genocide, but at least the reality of the massacre was broadcast to the world so that hopefully some action might be taken, Somalia facing 'hidden genocide' What does it say about the character of the American people what they have done to Somalia? 5821

A quick look at the Pretend for Peace Donkeys- Barack, Jimmy, Al, and Dennis

The Republicans love war and that is all there is to it. But what about the Democratic Party crowd and their Pretend for Peace Donkeys? They got the US population snookered most of the time so what are they really doing to end the US government wars? Let's go visit the Carter Center and other sites of these donkeys and see what they have to say about the War Against the Iraqi people, which has been going on now for YES, some 17 years or so! Kind of a relevant issue one might think? 5677

‘Patriotic’ pacifists and ‘Peace’crats to hold UFPJ lobbyfest gathering in Chicago

United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ) will be holding a gathering in Chicago next week to start their plans for a 2009 Lobbyfest of Barack Obama. They still haven't figured any of it out and most likely never will. Ostensibly the UFPJ has not decided on doing anything just yet and the gathering is for the group to supposedly decide just what should be done? 5661

US and Britain are starving Zimbabwe to death

The so-called US government's ZIMBABWE DEMOCRACY AND ECONOMIC RECOVERY ACT passed in 2001, began the US/ British efforts to starve Zimbabwe to death in a form of war called "Economic Sanctions." This was a process similar to how the Clinton Administration began to kill off Iraq with economic sanctions that served to soften that country up for the Bush Administration invasion and subsequent occupation of that country, now to be managed once again by a Democratic Party presidency under Barack Obama. 5653

The United Nations pushes war and starvation onto the peoples of Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Congo, and Haiti

Aid workers: Hungry kids dying in Haiti- At least 26 malnourished children have perished; scores others treated You saw that picture of the starving young girl in Haiti in the US media last week as they reported the rise of starvation inside Haiti post this year's hurricane season. They didn't mention though that the United Nations is overseeing this starvation on behalf of the United States government. 5613

“That small nations might be free”… and other Imperial Lies…

This is about, of course, the massive disconnect from reality shown by the "Nationalists" in the Bush Regime. The title comes from a song called "Foggy foggy dew" about the Easter Rebellion" and is a short representation of the British STATED reason for their rightful (or wrongful) share in starting World War One. "That the right of Small Nations to Self Determination is as valid as that of the Great Powers." 5592

Somali pirates make black Blackbeards

Gilbert and Sullivan pointed it out: One man's captain of industry is another man's pirate. Which is the pirate depends on who's making the law.   The global corporate media is up in arms about the Somali pirates, in actuality a militia mounted by Somalia's fishermen to protect their fisheries from international predators. Elsewhere, illegal commercial fishing ships are considered "pirates." The Somali protectors are called the Central Regional Coast Guard. 5586

Somalia and the Pentagon Pirates of the Indian Ocean

It is a clear indication of how iron clad government controlled is the US corporate press that news reporting about Somalia in the last couple of weeks has been centered on the stoning to death of a young girl and 'pirates'. Never mind those millions of starving refugees in the country that the Pentagon has created, it's 'Indiana Jones' time here for the American media! And pirates are always fun to play with! But who are the real pirates off the coast of Somali in the Indian Ocean? Asia Times Online gives us some insight into just that question... NATO reaches into the Indian Ocean 5573

Extrajudicial murders [air-] strike terror

PATHRI- It's Pakistani for a new computer chip/beacon which agents can throw in a window or over a wall to direct precision US missile fire to the domicile. Such that now: "People are sleeping outside the houses, in case somebody has thrown this pathri inside. It's created fear in the area." Umm, would that define terrorism? Imagine the fun to be had tossing jump-drives over your shoulder at anyone who's displeased you, as you tour areas where US drones are known to be marauding! 5566

Obama needs your support in Pueblo

PUEBLO- NOV 1st. It may be the last Colorado whistle stop on the way to the White House. Come see Candidate Obama and make sure he hears what you expect from him. No more wars period. Not in Sudan, Somalia, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Columbia, Bolivia, or Haiti. No more economic war of attrition against America's own people. 5326

Springs Dems rally downtown in force

COLORADO SPRINGS- A street party atmosphere prevailed downtown as local Dems formed a line over five blocks long to see the presumptive next First Lady. El Paso County may want to be conservative, but this afternoon the police had to treat the Democrats like VIPs. 5271

Barack and John, good buddie militarism attacks Syria and Pakistan united in killing frenzy

The second coming of Christ has struck born again Democrats in Colorado and elsewhere and paralyzed them into none action, as they hardly notice that the US government killing goes on without so much as a word from their Black Jesus. The US has created 300,000 refugees in one province of Pakistan alone, continues to bomb that country's civilians almost daily, and now is sending US assassination squads into Syrian towns in preparation for what? You might want to ask Joseph Biden on that one? Where are the Democrats? Where are the so-called American peace groups? Where is America's conscience and consciousness? 5260

The American ghost city, Mogadishu

If you have ever visited Tombstone, Arizona, you have been urged to see the reenactment of gunslingers duke it out in the streets. While Tombstone is barely a real American ghost town since tourism keeps it alive (somewhat), there is another ghost town --Made in USA-- and that is Mogadishu. Somalian 'ghost city' wracked by war ... excuse me, I meant ghost city, not town. Millions of ghosts, and yet no American tourism?   Many Americans say that they have seen ghosts? Millions of Americans say that. Yet they can't seem to see the ghosts in the 'ghost city' called Mogadishu. Why is that, I wonder? Why is it so hard to see these ghosts, America?

Barack Obama and the globalization of American racism

Barack Obama is about to be put into the White House to try to save America's business community from its own rampant incompetence and greed. The American ruling class has turned to a Black man to play the role of their modern Super Man, so does that mean that racism has been overcome in the US at long last? 5127

Time to use the word DEPRESSION again

One of the most ridiculous of the utterly false and phony positive thinking talking points used by the US's Right Wing corporate daily press and the talking heads of their TV stations is their constant babble about whether we have entered into a 'recession' or not? The correct word to be used is depression, it 's an ECONOMIC DEPRESSION we have been entered into worldwide, and there is nothing left to debate about it either. It's here. End of discussion. Go take a hike, Clowns@! 5069

US-Rwandan backed general, Laurent Nkunda, to ‘liberate’ Congo again- Watch out!

Renegade Congolese General Laurent Nkunda has told the BBC he is now fighting to "liberate" the whole of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Nkunda and Rwanda, alongside some other players, have caused around 6,000,000 deaths in Congo over less than the last decade, far surpassing the number who died during the genocide in Rwanda previously. So who all has their hand in this new state of affairs? To help answer that, first let's trip over to the US State Department for some info about current US-Rwanda relations. 4982

American death squads and torture in Somalia

Why are Americans so uninterested in what their government does in their name in Somalia? We certainly have shit loads of good liberal folk running around in circles demanding that the US government intervene militarily in Sudan, do we not? But we have a virtually total silence about what the US is doing to the Somali people. More blowback from the war on terror Why is that? 4970

Marine recruiters pursue high schoolers

COLORADO SPRINGS- I saw a local military-education atrocity the other day when I passed a school as kids recessed for lunch. Next time I'll have a camera and I won't be alone making sure it doesn't happen again. 4746

Ethiopian dictator fed up with being the US’s pit bull?

...Meles Zenawi... US pit bull pulling himself out of US custody?   Ethiopian dictator, Meles Zenawi, says he didn't think it would be so disgustingly unrewarding to be the US's pit bull in Bush's genocidal campagin against Somalia. Why hell no, Meles, you didn't know what you were getting into, did yuh? See BBC's- Ethiopia hints at leaving Somalia 4473

Millions face famine in US government made pogrom against Somalians

The Food Security Analysis Unit of the United Nations admits that between 3-4 million Somalians face starving to death due to the US, Ethiopian, and UN military actions that have torn apart the national security of that country. What a striking admission of the disaster that the United Nations has been a participant to causing, though of course the UN does not take due discredit for what it has been a big party to having been done. It never does though. 4421

Carnage across Somalia almost 2 years after US takeover

Somalia is a US occupied territory, not much different than the other US occupied nations of Iraq and Afghanistan. Ethiopian troops do the job for the Pentagon in Somali, whereas Iraq and Afghanistan are occupied much more directly by US troops, so we don't hear hardly anything about Somalia in 'the news' in our Glorious Homeland, the USA. 4367
