why centipedes are called centipedes and millipedes, millipedes…

Not that they have a hundred or a thousand legs but because it's really common for people to stop counting once they've gotten to 36.   Such as a fellow who calls himself an "American Patriot" and links his comment name to a Fox website. Mentioned in the Pizza thread some really stupid number of "50" people in the People's Parade against the Wall Street Thieves. Apparently the fellow is rather upset that anybody would blaspheme against his god Capital and wishes to sneer it away. Much like the assmunch Banksters leaning over their balconies, drinking champagne and sneering, protected by the NYPD. The fact that they were so heavily guarded and the protesters peaceful allowed those sneers. Here's a screenshot of part of a video from the protest. there's more than 50 people in the first column of people not counting the cops. Now, if the THOUSANDS of people had been of a mind to do so, they could have overwhelmed the more than 50 cops and just dragged the smug Wall Street Thieves off their balconies and given them a collective enema with their own champagne and caviar. Which, given the recent history of Europe, bankrupted not by their

Daily Gaza fishing flotilla blockaded by Israeli Navy, no fishing to supplement carefully measured aid starvation diet

The fishermen of Gaza are harassed daily by IDF gunships which shoot them outright when there are no Western witnesses present. The late Vittorio Arrigoni was one of the International Solidarity Movement who regularly accompanied fishing boats, forcing the Israelis to set aside their machine guns for water cannon when he was around. Of late activists have their own boat, the Oliva, to escort the fishing fleets. And today the Oliva was accompanied by another skiff commissioned by the Guardian. Their Jerusalem correspondent Harriet Sherwood tweeted the following adventure just now: 25695

Okay I’ll bite, what is legitimate about Israel?

Israel asserts that Palestinian efforts to seek UN recognition, without Israel's consent, are intended to delegitimize the Tel Aviv regime. Apparently sending an aid convey to relieve the siege of Gaza is also to delegitimize Israel. What they really mean it that Israel's inevitably violent responses won't help but to prompt onlookers to rethink Zionism's legitimacy. Because, Israel was created unilaterally by the UN, without obtaining Palestinian consent. And whatever reason could anyone contrive to deny humanitarian aid to the Gazans? The Obama administration recently reiterated its aim to combat efforts to delegitimize Israel. You wonder if they've even asked it themselves, what is legitimate about Apartheid, ethnic cleansing, and occupation?

In the struggle for Middle East land, Palestinian violence will always win

Israel can build all the new settlements it wants, take heart, it only takes one horrific Tate-Labianca-like crime scene to curb the Zionist homecoming charade. Israel can terrorize Gaza to smithereens, the Palestinians have nowhere to flee. American Jews on the other hand, are not going to leave comfortable digs, to relocate to Jerusalem where their 11-month-old might be slashed to death in her crib. Such dastardly strategy comes at a price of course, against a military willing to defy international law and exact collective punishment for the deed of one zealot, but Israel knows that even its US billions in weapons cannot compete with one Palestinian knife that finds its mark. 23456

Cameron vows Racial Cultural purity for Britain

Says he doesn't have anything against Islam, just "radical" Islam, meaning, Muslims who don't bow down before his Naturally Superior White Culture. He also, as prime minister to ROYALTY, and incidentally the same Royal Family that used to hunt his ancestors, just for sport, babbles much about Democracy and respect for other cultures. Which he says is somehow the hallmark of the British Empire. 22717

Baby Doc Duvalier back in Haiti…

No, really, the ex-dictator is back. Maybe he's hoping to steal some more, only this time there's no Haitian money to take. Perhaps from the international aid to Haiti? Negotiate a deal for a U.S. air base perhaps? Of course in the middle of a rigged election where, just like in Afghanistan and Iraq, there are U.S. soldiers at the polls with machine guns to make sure nobody votes for an unapproved candidate. keep order. And what of his private goon-squad "police" Les Tontons Macoutes? (French for eater of fools, a boogieman figure) 22184

Wikileaks: US kept informed of Israel plan to starve Gaza, but not to death

A report just published by Physicians For Human Rights, entitled "Humanitarian Minimum," is explained by a Wikileaks cable leaked by Norway's Aftenposten from their cache of the heretofore Israel-cleansed Cablegate. This one from November 3, 2008 which reported that "Israeli officials have confirmed to Embassy officials on multiple occasions that they intend to keep the Gazan economy functioning at the lowest level possible consistent with avoiding a humanitarian crisis."

TSA and Pentagoons play same lame blame game

TSA of course saying that people being angry about their Neo-Gestapo (betcha thought I was gonna say "nazi" huh?) thug tactics would cause delays. And not their Thuggish heavy-handed State-Sponsored Terrorism. The people, you see, have no right to resent being treated as criminals with no evidence. Guilty until proven innocent. Then blame anybody who acts any way non-docile or non-subservient for the punishment THEY, the Gesta errrr... Noble Defenders of freedom CHOOSE to inflict on other people. There's a counter-terrorism standard employed and enjoyed by every dictatorship, including the U.S. Military "free" puppet governments, (not just the Nazis, although they're the ones most famous for it) where they would round up local civilians in areas where a "terrorist" attack had occurred and simply execute some of them, and made sure to tell the survivors to blame it on the actions of the Resistance Fighters. That's the TSA tactic. Also, the Pentagon/State Department Gesta tactic for dealing with Wikileaks. Kill the messenger. Never mind that it's not the REVELATION of their many murders and miscellaneous misdemeanors, mayhem and malicious malfeasance that's caused their shared TSA/DoD/DoS/DoJ problems. It's the actual commission of their multiple misdeeds that caused the problem. If they didn't want

US/UK “Liberators” not allowing Afghan Liberty

What a surprise. The Puppet Karzhai government, as always echoing what Washington and London (but mainly Wall Street) tell them, is refusing to seat Members of Parliament elected "fraudulently". This from the most farcical "democracy" in history. Even the French and American puppets in Saigon weren't so obsequious. Or obviously propped up by Imperial Storm Troopers. That says a lot. The American and Koalition of the Killing soldiers standing guard outside polling places, to make sure nobody did a "terrorist" action like voting for somebody not on the Approved List, allowed those who WERE on the approved list to cast a few hundred thousand Phantom Ballots for themselves, Or So The Story-Line Goes So, what are the Conquero oops "Liberators" going to do next? It's THEIR Pentagon propaganda ploy. They deliberately dealt themselves this card, the question is what kind of bets are they making on this hand? Dissolve the Karzhai Puppet Show completely, declare an "international emergency" that allows the Corporate Thieves to keep the occupation going far beyond that 2014 magic number? Well, that part is a given. 20602

Pullout from Afghanistan? not for another 3 years..

BBC had a story "An hour away from Kabul, despair grows as NATO discusses exit..." Meaning, the BBC is required to report that the war is a positive thing for Afghan people so they focus on government officials who got their jobs handed to them by the American and British Conquerors and Occupiers errr "liberators and nation builders" and will, justifiably, have their heads handed to them by people who had friends and family (anybody in Afghanistan) Murdered, raped, imprisoned and tortured by the NATO Occupation forces. And the reader/listener is supposed to take pity on these poor, sad, wretched pathetic Traitors who sold their own people to the invaders as a means of gaining Puppet Local Dictator status. Awwwwww.... Shed a fake tear with me, Glenn Beck showed us how, put Vicks Vapo-Rub under your eyes... On the other hand, if 3 more years of the Mightiest Empire on earth wouldn't be enough time to build up a sense of safety in the Karzhai Puppet Regime, how long WOULD it take? Analysts who aren't in the pay of the Pentagon say there's no way, and that if the occupation succeeds it could only be by being Permanent. 20593

Dial-a-BabyKiller service offered by Craigslist

Actually, it was a post offering Body Armor published against C.L. rules (weapons are supposedly prohibited, and according to the Pig Establishment, body armor is an offensive weapon if used by a non-Police criminal, as opposed to the Criminals who make up the Pig Establishment) said he had been a Contractor (Probably a jail guard at one of the Torture errr... "Detention" Centers) aka Mercenary Baby Killer in Iraq. Let's make this abundantly clear, the ones who provide the Support for the Baby-Killing machine are every bit as guilty as the Terroristic Thugs who kick down peoples doors and murder them in their own homes for refusing, at least allegedly, to bow down and worship the U.S. Occupation with much bootlicking and ass-kissing. And every bit as guilty of Torture as the Perverted Uniformed Sex-offenders who run the Torture errr... "Enhanced Interrogation and detention centers". Every Contractor is just as guilty as the Blackwater Goons and the Wackenhut Goons who get their sexual giggles from directing violence against people. The Blackwater and Wackenhut goons get SEXUALLY turned on by Killing Babies and, in my opinion, so does every Cop in the world. And this one, before his posting got flagged, left his Phone

As was long suspected, then reported, and the reporters mocked..

Like when Dr Laura's son was using MySpace to boast of war crimes in which he participated or fantasized about committing, denounced by Ms. Schlesinger and others on the RightWing Lunatic Fringe as being "hacked" onto his account... along with his bits about worshiping Satan... But now it appears there are still more stories coming out of VietRaqiStan of soldiers, good old Red--blooded American Boy Scouts, killing for nothing more than the fun of doing it. But it's true patriot Bradley Manning who's facing a Life Sentence for exposing it, not any of the Murderers. Had there been no war crimes to expose there would have been no exposure. 19890

The Ministry of Love (because non- compliance must be CRAZY right?)

In the book "1984" Winston Smith is arrested, and taken to the Ministry of Love, which in DoubleSpeak meant a Prison with a brainwashing facility. AKA, a psychiatric torture chamber. Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, held in a similar facility, in the Soviet Union, was described as Mentally Ill by the Soviets and the Western Propaganda Media called it a Gulag, a Concentration Camp and ... Ministry of Love. When Massimo Tartaglia busted Berlusconi in the face by throwing a Church at him (literally, it was a model of the main cathedral in Milan), The GodlessFather Berlusconi first had a press release where Signor Tartaglia was taped begging his forgiveness, a "Ring Kissing" ceremony if ever I saw one. Berlusconi said he forgave him. And said two days later, as he was being bundled into his car, that "Love conquers hate". 18320

On whose border will Israel attack Iran

With all of Israel's gesticulation about Iran, you might think the axis of evil bordered on Israel. Especially given reports that Israel plans to launch ground assaults on Iran after December. Oddly it does not. At minimum, Israeli forces would have to cross Jordan or Syria, then Iraq or Turkey, to reach Iran. French newspaper Le Canard Enchain reports that the IDF has ordered combat rations and is assembling elite commando units. On whose sovereign land will Israel mobilize?

Occupation and the Irish Resistance

There can never be peace in Ireland until the foreign, oppressive British presence is removed, leaving all the Irish people as a unit to control their own affairs and determine their own destines as a sovereign people, free in mind and body, separate and distinct physically, culturally and economically. -Bobby Sands, 1954-1981

Strip Gaza bare to put down a prison riot

ISRAEL IS READY TO DECLARE A CESSATION OF ITS MOP UP OF GAZA? Israel moved its troops into Gaza under the pretext that Palestinians imprisoned there had rioted. As if tanks can stop the rocket fire with brute force. What society has eradicated crime by threatening collective punishment of its subjects? As jailer of Gaza and the West Bank, Israel intends to strip the Palestinians of everything: food, shelter, dignity, even their children, but then Israel will have to throw away the key. 6120

Can Russians do worse than US soldiers?

I'm listening right now to live alarmist coverage of Russia's occupation of Georgia. Embeds are reporting to analysts about the panicked Georgians, about forced labor, and about marauding Russian soldiers committing atrocities. A cease fire has been signed, and though we don't hear any gunfire, American leaders and media hounds are blustering about the Russian disproportionate use of force. When did our DoD decide to recognize that war crime? 4260

Do 700,000 dead kids mean anything?

I’m pretty damned sure that seeing 700,000 kids burned, strafed, sniped, exploded, starved, poisoned or run over, would prompt a universal humanitarian outcry, your voice included, and eventually the perpetrators would have to relent. That’s a likely reason, I believe, why you and others are not being shown the killing.

How to win the war in Iraq

How to win in Iraq depends on your objectives. With respect to oil and profiteering, US interests could not be better served. If we want to eradicate the Iraqi population, follow the Israel model in Palestine, or Westward expansion versus the Native Americans. Genocide.

Does that soldier speak German?

I've seen this image somewhere before. In black and white. By the look of Captain Kearney's square jaw and Nordic brow, isn't he an Aryan Wehrmacht Centurion, easily, with paratrooper helmet and Northern-European theater camouflage? With his kamaraden against the rocks, you can imagine them in a bunker in Normandy, awaiting the rising tide which will overcome their occupation. Great bit of subversive photo editorial work behind the lines at the NYT.

Egypt thwarts Israeli starvation of Gaza

Egypt thwarts Israel's efforts to starve their Palestinian captives in Gaza. Masked gunmen in Palestine were responsible for tearing down part of the metal barrier separating Egypt from Gaza in the town of Rafah, but now Egyptian leader Mubarak has announced his intention to allow residents of Gaza to resupply themselves in Egypt with the food and necessities being deprived them by the Israeli blockade. 2499
