US, not Assad, drops MOAB Weapon of Mass Destruction on Afghans, same MO used against Philly’s MOVE insurgents.


The US is bragging right now that it’s dropped a GBU-43/B MOAB, aka Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb, know in the Chairforce as a “Mother Of All Bombs” bomb, apparently the larger of non-nuclear bombs in its arsenal, on a suspected tunnel in Afghanistan, presumably full of Afghans. Will the UN condemn the US act and support coalition retaliatory airstrikes on the rogue regime which did it? No need for an investigation, we’re on TV admitting to the deed. Note the US war media are adding “in combat” and “on the battlefield” to their headlines although the command and control center allegedly targeted would be Islamic State’s DC.

Inspired by Lance Armstrong confession, dope George W. Bush comes clean on Iraq WMDs


Lance Armstrong appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s Confessional TV franchise to admit he doped and lied. If Oprah polled her television audience for who should be next episode’s guest star, it might have to be Manti Te’o explaining that his dead fake internet girlfriend was a beard. Imagine the ratings if Oprah could book ex-dope-in-chief George W. Bush minus his minder Dick Cheney. Iraq’s fake WMDs would be the least of it.


Remember the Maine, the Alamo, Pearl Harbor or the day they found WMDs in Iraq?

I remember the day they pretended to have found WMDs. On CNN and FOX there were were reports that an oil refinery outside Baghdad had been liberated by U.S. Marines with WMDs inside. So they brought cameras in… embedded and therefore non-truthful reporters. A dank, dirty place. Oil refineries are like that. A huge stack of bent, rusted and otherwise unsafe 55 gallon drums. They would have been stacked that way to make the trip to the recycling plant. Nobody in his right mind would use one to store even the NORMAL toxic petrochemicals. Then about 30 barrels, unstained by the pollution, the smoke or smog or haze of burnt or vaporized oils, the soot that was caked onto every OTHER surface. Powder Blue paint on them, looked just like they had come directly from wherever they were manufactured. Not like, say, they were a decade old, hidden and moved since 1991. You might ask, “Jonah, how the Hell would you be able to tell that?” to which Jonah might well reply, “Because I worked in steel mills, solvent and glue plants, and oil refineries”. They were stacked, actually. Not on pallets and lifted up by crane or forklift. No, STACKED. Fairly neatly. Something you’re not going to get any manual laborers to do if they’ve got anything in them. A full 55 gallon drum weighs almost a quarter of a ton.
And then the camera lights glanced rapidly over some black and white letters written on the sides of the drums, not a complete view but you could see that they were in English and tagged for export. Read more »


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.

Bush/Blair have a fall guy!

Iraqi Defector gave defective evidence deliberately, US/UK Defective Detectives failed to notice. See? The Bush, Blair and other governments who launched the blatantly profit-driven war weren’t actually Lying to us in any way, oh, no… They were Misled by a bad ol’ Iraqi. That makes all better, they weren’t dishonest, just stupid. Dig that thar hole a little deeper boys… you’ll dig your way out eventually… lying cowardly profit-hungry chickenshit pukes… LONDON (Reuters) – An Iraqi defector made up claims that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction to help topple his government, Britain’s Guardian newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Bolton (reportedly) renews call to Bomb Iran.

As ChickenHawk Supreme, he’s done so many times in the past… Called for OTHER people to do the deed. My suggestion for all these “kill in the name of God” Religious Terrorists like Bolton, Bush, Prince, Cheney, Palin etc… strap some dynamite vests on and parachute out over Teheran and do it your Own God-Damn Stupid Self. Pay for it with “your” own money too, you stole that to begin with, took it literally off the dead bodies of your victims, both American and “foreign”, as though God really gives two shits about the nationality of either murderers or murder victims. NeoCons are such pukes.


Robert Fisk and the language of power, danger words: Competing Narratives

Celebrated reporter -and verb- Robert Fisk had harsh words, “danger words” he called them, for host Al-Jazeera where he gave an address about the language of power which has infected newsman and reader alike. Beware your unambiguous acceptance of empty terms into which state propagandists let you infer nuance: power players, activism, non-state actors, key players, geostrategic players, narratives, external players, meaningful solutions, –meaning what?
I’ll not divulge why these stung Al-J, but I’d like to detail the full list, and commit not to condone their false usage at NMT, without ridicule, “quotes” or disclaimer.

A bit of Blatant Racism from veteran historian Dave Hughes and the Gazette

Ok so nothing actually NEW about that, except that it was published yesterday. Mr Hughes celebrates the “counterinsurgency” and “Anti-Terrorist” actions of the Racist Murderer Kit Carson and the Colorado Militia. Yeppers! While blatantly comparing the Racist War on Iraq and Afghanistan to the equally Racist, equally For Profit War Of Conquest which “subjugated” the American Indians, he doesn’t apologize for his own attitude that them thar dark skinned “insurgents” need to be Put In Our Place and God-Damn Stay There.

Rove’s Book: “I regret that I didn’t LIE ENOUGH for Bush”

Actually his “regret” was that he didn’t defend the indefensible strongly enough. Not that he went along with the LIES about WMDs even after they were demonstrated to be false, and continued to press the notion that “all (responsible) Intelligence agencies agreed”
Except for Wilson and his wife Valerie Plame, who were outed by Rove and Bush because they couldn’t actually refute the evidence the Wilsons presented, or for that matter such “liberals” as Colonel (USMC) Scott Ritter, who unlike Rove or Bush had actually BEEN to Iraq, actually investigated the WMDs claim, with other actual Experts, (unlike anybody within the Bush Administration, REAL experts) and the private for-hire and VERY right wing intelligence agency Strategic Forecasting.

Economy grows by 3%….

But only on the strength of the Socialist programs like Cash For Clunkers and stimulus payouts. Also according to the AP of all people, it’s the best showing in TEN YEARS. Well, Tea Party… what sayest thou now? Capital just got its collective Arse kicked. But, fear not, Fearmongers, you just might be able to scream, chant and tantrum (along with the occasional murder of Americans) into derailing the only real hope of economic recovery, thus destroying America as a nation. Many of the Wrong Wing have said they wouldn’t mind if America fails, just as long as they could blame it on Socialism and Liberalism.

Israeli mushroom cloud smoking gun

idf-internet-megaphone-iran-nukes
What does the Israeli Internet Megaphone look like in the flesh? Take a look at who’s peddling the Weapons of Mass Destruction meme against Iran. It’s the same Smoking Gun Mushroom Cloud scare.


Thunderous Silence From The Right…

When Glenn Beck, Darling Boychild of the Right Wing Lunatic Fringe, allowed an equally demented guest, former Osama bin Laden hunter extraordinaire Michael F. Scheuer, to say that America needed another 9/11, this time with WMDs, in order to force Americans to completely abandon liberty and the Democratic Process and reinstate their Master Richard Cheney as Dictator-for-life, trade all that went before for the safety of being abject slaves.
They’re willing, for their own political power, to give up perhaps millions of American Lives and a U.S. city or two.
That’s the Classic Definition of Terrorism.

When Bush and his Terrorist Corporate Empire started the Iraq War…

…the date chosen for beginning the invasion and occupation was in commemoration of the date in 1988 when the Iraqi Army, with full cooperation and collaboration from the United States, gassed a Kurdish town as part of the continuing war between Iraq and Iran.

Israeli troops to withdraw by tomorrow?

Warsaw GhettoWell. So does this mean the Knesset were doing Bush one last ass-kissing or does it mean the “Emergency” declared wasn’t actually as much of a big deal as they let on? Were they really “fighting for their life” or was it just politically timed?

McCain-Palin: incontinent & incompetent


100 days until end of Bush Error

Imagine that. The Conservatives refused to provide health care for all, claiming the $50B price tag would bankrupt America. Yet, in the last month or so, the Treasury and the Fed have forked over more than $5T — over 100 times as much — to cover the gambling losses of the filthy-rich. It is clearly way past time for a Second American Revolution!
 
The entire planet has been scammed by the filthy rich. There is nothing on earth that can stop this slow motion economic trainwreck. The derivatives meltdown will cost more than 10 times the entire world’s output. On the up-side, I hear the filthy-rich taste just like chicken!

Of course the Reaganites don’t mean what they say…
