Haiti Today

'UN soldiers took over from U.S. Marines after Washington’s coup against the democratically elected president, Jean Bertrand Aristide, in 2004. Since then, Aristide’s party has been effectively banned. Former U.S. president Bill Clinton holds no public office in his own country, but he rules like a viceroy as the UN’s Special Envoy to Haiti. The country has been reduced to a kind of protectorate of the UN – which, for all practical purposes, translates as a colony of the United States.' --Black Agenda Report. There is no doubt that the US government is responsible for the misery that remains today in Haiti. Let's not forget how the US REALLY rules over the rest of the world. Haiti's misery is no exception for what rule by the US Empire brings.

The real reason why Mexico can’t hold an honest election

Mexican leftist candidate wants presidential election annulled ___The real reason why Mexico can't hold an honest election, is that the US government colludes, time after time, in rubber stamping its approval for allowing Mexican presidential candidates the US wants in top office to commit wholesale electoral fraud without any international protest or investigation. The US and its international allies simply turn a blind eye and deaf ear away from what Mexican superrich are doing to their own people, with support from US corporate and government elites.

NY Times perfumes the 18th UN condemnation of Cuban Embargo

Does this seem like an appropriate headline to you? US EMBARGO ON CUBA FINDS SCANT SUPPORT AT U.N. --that's how the NYT titled its article whose first sentence was accurate: "The General Assembly voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday to condemn the American trade embargo against Cuba." Then the NYT dismissed the non-binding resolution as "an annual ritual" instead of the 18TH YEAR IN A ROW the US finds itself in defiance of a unanimous count of the community of nations.   You say 187 vs 3 is not unanimous? The only nation-entities voting with the US were Israel and Palau, with the Marshall Island and Micronesia abstaining -- basically all former or quasi US territories. American NYT readers are made to think their country stands as lone vanguard against the Cuban peril, instead of a gang leader bully breaking international law. And get a load of the Zionist paper's other headline: From Iraq, Lessons for the Next War.

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

US govt spreads terror to Yemen

Hundreds of thousands of new refugees and yet another country, Yemen, is now being destabilized by the US's relentless drive to control the Middle East's oil resources. Yemen is not oil rich but sits in a strategic locale between Iran and Saudi Arabia, and Iran and the Horn of Africa (Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Kenya). That makes it a key battle zone (like Lebanon and Syria to the West) in US efforts to destabilize and topple the current Iranian government in order to replace it with a servile puppet regime under US government control. 8891

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

Peru convicts Fujimori for war crimes even as Sri Lanka slaughters thousands in a similar counter insurgency war against its citizens

The world once sat by and allowed the United States and its Peruvian puppet, Alberto Fujimori to slaughter off tens of thousands of its indigenous citizens. The excuse was that Sendero Luminoso, the oppositional group, was not a nice enough group of people for liberals and Leftists to campaign to stop the slaughter from occurring. Today the whole world sits by, because they don't like the Tamil Tigers, and does the exact same thing of allowing the slaughter to go on. 7303

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

How the US helped out in Indonesia’s forgotten genocide of 500,000 dead

We get fed so much bullshit all the time about how supposedly the US has always been this great beacon of light in the 'civilized world'. But did you know that the US under Lyndon Johnson helped create a genocide that murdered at least 500,000 people in the island country of Indonesia? Yes, this was a MADE IN THE US genocide, People, and the Associated Press revisits the scene in this brief report online today. AP Exclusive: Indonesians recount role in massacre 5545

Your vote just doesn’t count in the two party dictatorship

...Dictatorships have gotten wise. It is easier to run a dictatorship when you present the public with two parties instead of one. Dictatorial Power no longer resides in just one single individual in today's dictatorship, but within one power bloc instead. The public face of today's dictatorship is a bureaucratic assemble of hacks, not just the face of one Supremo. 4470

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

Russia rejects NATO, refuses to be dismembered like Yugoslavia and Iraq

When the Russian Communist Party re-established capitalism in the former Soviet Union, its top misleaders at the time(including Putin) thought that the place that Russia would be granted in the new world disorder would be somewhat akin to the position that Germany, France, and Italy are granted by the US. These Russian top dogs thought that they would become the new capitalist politicos of capitalist junior partner national governments underneath the broad US Empire's umbrella. Poor students of Lenin these guys were indeed. 4332

Russia should no longer try to appease US/NATO imperialism

Russia and China have been trying to stay out of the line of fire by appeasing the US/NATO drive for perpetual war, but it has not worked, will not work, and cannot work. Russia should not pull its troops out of the Abkhazia and South Ossetia regions, areas considered by the US/NATO to be part of their new country of Georgia, which the US set up at the fall of the former Soviet Union. These regions are actually full of other nationalities other than just Georgians, and have absolutely no reason to be considered Georgian property at all by the rest of the world. 4300

America ignores recent Jewish pogroms against Arabs

IDF snipers at work...   The US meda and US government is systematically covering up the recent Jewish pogroms in the Middle East. It seems that American elites have plenty of ability to concentrate on the sins of Zimbabwe, China, Sudan, but a total inability to observe themselves and their allies at work. Torture and abuse is Ok for the US and its allies, but then how sanctimonious elite officials and their stooges in the corporate press can get about others! 3813
