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)... Stated that the Oakland Occupation was "a danger to the public" so they used poison gas on the CITIZENS involved in constitutionally protected free speech and freedom peaceably to assemble. And arrested 140 of the citizens for daring to criticize their Wall Street whoremasters. Thus making sure that the only medical statements about the injuries suffered by the Citizens would come from the Jail Doctors, in other words: Their Fellow Pigs who can Always be counted on to join them in the Blue Wall. "gassing their own citizens" is Officially the reason for which Saddam Hussein was hanged, with the full blessings and unofficially at the command of the American Corporate Government who had supplied the gas in the first place. Unofficially his "crime" was not being Pinocchio to the Wall Street Government's Gepetto. The same reason Occupy is being attacked with lethal gas across America and in every country over which Wall Street claims ownership. How DARE the puppets tear off their strings and declare themselves to be Real People!

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. Perhaps he didn't really do it and wants to hog "credit" for getting his fellow Americans assaulted. I know, I know, an anti-American terrorist, but he's still American. Here's another theory, Maybe he's a LIBERAL infiltrator into the ConservaTard world trying to make THEM look stupid. Which, all things considered, would be a redundant effort to their own making of silly-looking done to themselves with, you know, not any letup whatsodamnedever. Howley, old sot... do you even take into consideration that gas of any kind isn't limited in its spread or effect to those at whom it's, for want of a better word, AIMED? Every time the Pigs, like the museum guards you praise for their "courage" in resisting your staged attack,, use gas, be it tear gas or pepper spray, it's a chemical weapon deployed against their own people. Sounds like you have a lot of God-damn fun mimicking the worst charges against Saddam Hussein. Your pig hero did, certainly. But, Patrick, old head, you've got to realize something and start realizing it really soon. Those stories your "conservative" masters have you and other professional liars spread, about Asthma and CPOD in particular, being a fake illness made up to "get more black kids on Medicaid" ummm... no. They're real and the diagnoses of Asthma predated Medicaid for about a century. CPOD is an adult-onset form of it and, apparently, what your side is attempting is to deflect the public eye from research that Ozone and other pollutants caused from using internal combustion engines run on gasoline and diesel is a likely cause of it. And they certainly make the juvenile-onset disease of Asthma very much worse. Further, people with emphysema (P. C.: Cigarettes and smog), elderly people and infants, along with the Asthma/CPOD Americans you took the risk of hitting with gas, can DIE and in many cases HAVE died as a result of similar deployments. In case you want a more "Conservative" source for that information, perhaps you could hit up the Collin County Prosecutor in Texas who filed charges against a 14 year old, tried him as an ADULT, for setting off a canister of Tear Gas. The charges included Assault With A Deadly Weapon. Now, I know the manufacturers of Tear Gas and Pepper spray deny any of their products being lethal. So do the makers of the Taser. If you'd care for more on the Taser, or especially if you DON'T (mostly because you're a narcissistic assmunch) here's another Very Conservative Source for information on

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 Army and financed al Qa'eda. They don't give a rat's ass about your lives any more than they did the 2800 they had killed on 9/11 or the 300 Marines they had murdered in Beirut or the uncounted thousands of Nicaraguan priests, nuns, nurses, doctors, teachers, orphan children and other civilians they "liberated" with American-bought bullets to the heads. They won't give any more of a damn about your lives than the lives of the Iraqi and Afghan civilians they had you murder. If it comes down to a choice of them facing the hangman themselves or scapegoating you the way they did their Other Puppets, you'll be stretching the rope. It's just the way the coward bitches do business. Ollie North has been rewarded for his selling out "his fellow" Marines by being paid several million dollars a year to LIE for his whoremasters, on a Fox News show. Gunny Bob Newman has a similar Whore deal for much less money on Hate Talk Radio. If either of them were to actually, for the first time in their sorry worthless misspent lives, MAN THE HELL UP AND TELL THE GOD-DAMN TRUTH, they would be sold out the way their Masters sold out Manny Noriega, Saddam Hussein, Osama, the top level financiers of the Medellin Cartel... Betraying your countrymen and your oaths is Okey Dokey with them, but betraying the Whoremasters isn't permitted.

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 more so. That leads to a "what if" situation and it not only reflects bad on the current administration, but all the way back to Reagan. And in particular the Father and Son Bushwacker team. And Generally Betrays-us who was just anointed Feudal Warlord of the CIA. Are we to believe that "fiscal conservatives" who would bean count Americans out of our very existence, saying that Health Care, pensions and even the obscenely low Minimum Wage are far too expensive for "us" to maintain, would somehow miss a multimillion dollar compound built basically on THEIR private stomping grounds and guarded (only) by The Pakistani Army... Is Generally Betrays-us now poised to sell out his Pakistani connections so they don't snitch him off? Like other operations against (former) Puppet Dictators like Manuel Noriega and Saddam Hussein... Were he and the rest of the Pentagon crew blowing smoke, as they usually do, lying about maybe, you know, KNOWING where the body or the living person of Usama bin Laden was all this time, because they were paying his rent and his security guards to keep him there until it was convenient to 'have him killed"? Did the Navy, who unleashed the SEALs to do the murder, know for the past 8 years where their Dehumanized "target" was? And were content to have so many of "their own" privately owned, publicly funded Seamen and Marines slaughtered to keep up the pretense? The first and most important piece of evidence is "did the suspect have a motive?" Yes, they did. They announced beforehand that they wanted this war in order to maintain American (and British, until they could figure a way to screw the British Mob) Corporate Mafia in complete power over the entire economy of the world. Not just oil but they made the blatant point that Oil

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) So, Colorado Springs and El Paso County show a lot of solidarity with Terrorists like Gregg, and his "asset" Posada. El Paso County Texas too, where the Republican prosecutor, in a show trial, charged this mass murdering TERRORIST with "lying to immigration officials" a charge compared to charging Hitler with Disorderly Conduct and then dropping the charges. I spent more time in the El Paso County Jail for talking back to the PIGS. Guess if I actually were a murderer or something they would have simply welcomed me to their club. Pigs are like that. Fellow CIA "assets" handled by Gregg and his friends Rumsfeld, George HW Bush, (before and AFTER he became President in charge of Vice and subsequently Commander in Thief) Ollie North, Richard Secord, a rogues gallery indeed... But the "assets" list included, until they became too much of an embarrassment, Saddam Hussein, The Medellin Cartel, and Panama Puppet Manuel Noriega. Their current assets include Nouri al Maliki, Satrap of Baghdad, Mauricio Funes, of the Satrapy El Salvador, Felipe Calderon, Puppet Dictator of Mexico, Eden Pastora, Babykilling Contra leader, Ricardo Martinelli Panamian Sock-puppet, and the list grows longer. Human rights slaughtered right along with the humans who claimed them. Posada was just one of many, and was charged, and acquitted, in the same El Paso County Texas Kangaroo Court system which acquits cops of murder routinely, and enables the same PIGS to beat, imprison on false charges (automatic conviction in their courts on those charges) and KILL people for the crimes of talking back or wearing a brown skin. It's true what they say, Thieves of a Feather, Cowards Run in Packs, and the Counties of El Paso Texas and El Paso Colorado glorify, fund, and enable Terrorist BITCHES like Posada and Gregg and Bush and Palin. Have a nice babykilling.

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 into cages that were officially acceptable areas in which to protest. The notion of doing so in Baghdad was mocked by protesters, who insisted that herding them all into soccer stadiums was absurd. Protesters continued to march in the streets instead, and no reports indicate any protesters showed up at the stadiums." The Puppet al Maliki knows how to dance when the Imperial Storm Troopers pull his strings. And the soldiers, airmen, marines and sailors who say they're fighting for OUR freedom there or anywhere else are still lying, as are any of their political allies. One of the slaughters of demonstrators in Iraq happened very recently, when the War-Pigs were applauding demonstrations in Libya and Syria, but, again, having U.S. military standing by in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and of course, Iraq, to make sure the Peasants didn't get too "uppity" and actually TAKE the "freedom" the U.S. Politicians lie so smoothly and say they've "given" to the region. Meanwhile, Bradley Manning languishes in the Torture Dungeons at Quantico for telling the Truth which those same politicians dare not speak. Hillary Rodham-Clinton, Imperialist that she insists she isn't, said that Iran was "meddling" in the pro-democracy movements. Oh, my! How DARE the Iranian people feel concern for something happening in their back yard! Especially since the Puppet Hereditary Dictators in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Bahrain, and Kuwait are ROYALTY to and the Iranian government is composed of "Peasants". Yeah, piggoes, some "freedom" you're exporting. Gotta admit, though, the beat downs, arrests, torture and murders THEY commit with YOUR backing, are exactly the same as how you treat American Dissidents. For once you Pig Bastards weren't actually Lying.

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. I attended because I was insulted by the lecture's title: "What do Ho Chi Minh, Saddam Hussein, and Kim Jung Il have in common?" the speaker further slandered the father of modern Vietnam by indulging to associate another villain to the list, that of Muammar al-Gaddafi. But gracefully Gregg acquitted himself by explaining that Ho Chi Minh had been misjudged, and thus perhaps there is call to engage even our most despicable adversaries in dialog, lest we repeat our mistaken policies, as Gregg believes we are doing in Afghanistan. Not much objectionable with that. Actually, you can read Gregg's address, it's virtually word for word the introduction he wrote for a 2009 study of the CIA's unheralded successes in Vietnam. To his credit, Gregg does not echo the ongoing theme that Vietnam was winnable. Relating his more recent expertise about Korea, Gregg offers that Kim Jong Il is more than your common loon. Rather, Il is of unusually high intelligence, underrated by the US, driven despotic by his isolation. Or driven mad by our offense, I'd add. I'm surprised Kim Jong Il tolerates that we name our ambassador in Seoul as the Ambassador to Korea, rather than to South Korea. How dare US-occupied Korea assert to represent the national identity of Korea? As in Vietnam, it's the north doing the heavy lifting toward inevitable unification. Gregg nearly had me convinced he was reformed until he added a forth bogeyman for comparison, Iran. Iran mustn't get nukes, etc, etc, Ahmadinejad unpredictable, can't be trusted, etc. Ho Chi Minh had been demonized Gregg said, based on a wrong-headed anti-Communist domino-theory mindset, yet Gregg is perfectly willing to be stuck to Capitalism's current mindset against Islam. Gregg made such winning arguments for tolerance, respect, diplomacy, and the integrity of the best intelligence officers, but isn't that precisely the neo-liberal spiel? The CC audience lapped it up. Here was the closest most of us will ever get to someone connected to the murder of Che Fucking Guevara, icon of the world struggle against Western oppression. That's explaining the obvious, but I'd add, Che's heroic stature is no more diminished even if only known as a t-shirt image to this crowd. School-of-the-Americas-trained Rodriguez knew the stature of the hero he was cutting down, to this day he brags about wearing Che's watch as a keepsake. Rodriguez returned from this assignment with a piece of notebook paper

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 fresh water. huge amounts. More than is actually available even without the water demands of the local population. Which is a lot more people now. So they're going to bring in more people, add fewer jobs than they take up, and less water. The ones pushing this political boondoggle, this government giveaway, yet another one... Halliburton and BP. Oh, I know, their political faces are the likes of Dan Maes and Tom Tancredo, and a slew of others who are going to defeat the "Liberal Hippie Anti-Oil Giant U.N. Sponsored Conspiracy". But it's the giant oil corporations running the show. The ones who slough off paying taxes, and collect unspeakable abominations of Government Giveaways like the Continual War, a giant funnel leading from the U.S. Treasury directly into their greedy pockets. Their predatory mouths stuffed with the blood of Mine and Oil workers whose lives they casually dismiss. And the unspeakable devastation they do to the economy and ecology both, that's just icing on their bloodstained cake. I bet their CEOs and CFOs look at the videos of their disasters, "Oh, look, that one, falling off the rig and burning... he's still alive! Damn, that's HAWT! I'm gonna have to change pants it's so good!" "Awwwww, lookit at the widows and orphans of the miners, crying because daddy ain't coming home... isn't that just the greatest thing you ever saw? A real Kodak moment! I haven't laughed this hard since we actually convinced the stupid bastards that Trickle Down was going to work for THEM instead of just us!" They get money, on the Halliburton side, not only from the fat contracts with no taxation in Iraq and Afghanistan, taking Public Welfare to the tune of Trillions and never putting any back. but also contracting the people who watch the reservoirs to keep al Qa'eda operatives

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. "Our position was to support action so that the will of the international community, that Saddam Hussein disclose and dispose of weapons, be reinforced, and at the back of my mind was this sense that, if the international community did not act here, then the international community would find it difficult to gain credibility for acting in other areas, and this new world order that we were trying to create was being put at risk. So I go back to what I say is the wider argument about defying the will of the international community." "Though expressing some regret regarding the failure of his international community to work with Iraqis in the rebuilding of the country after the fact, Brown insisted Iraq's many dead and displaced was a necessary sacrifice, made to ensure the survival of a new world order the international community was attempting to construct" A moment of Truth is in order: Bush, Blair, Rove, Brown, Wolfowicz, Cheney, Rice, McCain, the cast and crew of Fox News... All knew in advance that the lies they were telling in order to attack the People of Iraq were in fact LIES. All of the accomplices to this crime made money from the blood of Dead Soldiers and Dead Civilians. Even though all of the accomplices, including the Minuteman-Tea Party- Klan Spokespersons Beck, O'Reilly, Local Media Whore Michelle Malkin, Local Murder Advocates Tancredo and "Gunny" Bob Newman, General Betray-us, ALL of them know the significance of that, they still insist on calling it a Global War On Terror, they still show up at parades "honoring" the Soldiers, still make impassioned speeches that somehow For-Profit Wars of Conquest equal "defending Freedom". And to make their blasphemy complete, they justify these Murders in the name of God.

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. Forget the presumption of innocence. Said Cornyn: "These terrorists planned and executed the mass murder of thousands of innocent Americans. Treating them like common criminals is unconscionable." Added Lieberman, they-- "are war criminals, not common criminals ... not American citizens entitled to all the constitutional rights American citizens have in our federal courts." Nope, sorry it doesn't work that way. Our constitution protects the rights of everyone under US jurisdiction. Not to mention the detainees are "alleged" criminals as well. The senators are perhaps influenced by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's media monicker: the self proclaimed mastermind of the 9/11 attacks. That's a rather inflated attribution based on a confession extracted after an apparently record setting series of water boarding torture sessions. Unless Attorney General Eric Holder plans to conduct the 9/11 trials under wraps, with the sound off like the kangaroo court lynching of Saddam Hussein, this news could be the most significant development the 9/11 Truth Movement will ever get. Next step, join the ACLU in urging Holder to try all War on Terror detainees in US civilian courts. This isn't about keeping American citizens safe. As the Senators rightly miserly point out, this is about according the detainees sufficient rights that they might win an inconveniently fair trial.

Sept 11 – America Reaps What It Sows!

A post-911 perspective by Black Liberation Army prisoner of war Jalil Muntaqim. U.S. International Warfare Initiates World War III Human Rights During Wartime By Jalil A. Muntaqim In the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, Americans have displayed their true colors of jingoism, a militaristic spirit of nationalism. Similarly, it was witnessed how the people of Iraq rallied in support of their President, Saddam Hussein, after the U.S. bombed to death 250,000 Iraqis, and continued devastation of that country with collateral damage of 1 million dead women and children. Hence, people rallying in support of their government and representatives is a common phenomenon when a country is attacked by an outsider. The U.S. has been foremost in the world extending foreign policy of free-market economy, to the extent of undermining other countries cultures and ideologies expressed as their way of life. Such conflicts inevitably positions the U.S. as the centerpiece, the bulls-eye for international political dissent, as indicated by demonstrations against the U.S. controlled IMF, WTO and World Bank conferences. The attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon did not occur in a vacuum. The people that carried out the attacks were not blind followers or robots with an irrational hatred of the U.S. peoples. Rather, this attack was part of an overall blowback to U.S. imperialist policy in support of zionist Israel and opposition to fundamentalist Islam. There are essentially three primary world ideologies or world views: the capitalist free-market economy/democracy; the socialist production economy; and Islamic theocratic government, of which has been in competition for many decades. However, in the last 20 years the socialist economies has been severely subverted and co-opted by free-market economies, the ideals of American style democracy. This isolated, for the most part, Islamic theocratic ideology and system of government as the principle target of the U.S. in its quest for world hegemony. This reality of competing world views and economies is further complicated due to religious underpinning of beliefs that motivates actions, especially as they are expressed by U.S. and Western European christianity and Israel zionist judaism in opposition to Islam. From the struggles of the Crusades to the present confrontation, the struggle for ideological supremacy reigns, as the faithful continue to proselytize in the name of the Supreme Being. When geopolitics are combined with religious fervor in the character of nationalist identity and patriotism, rational and logical thinking is shoved aside as matters of the moment takes historical precedents. It has often been said that "Truth Crush to the Earth Will Rise Again". Since truth is relative to ones belief, can it be safely said that America has reaped what it has sowed? The American truth of capitalist christian democracy and its imperialist hegemonic aspirations has crushed both socialist and Islamic world views. It has extended its avaricious tentacles as the world police and economic harbinger of all that is beneficent, in stark denial of its history as a purveyor of genocides, slavery and colonial violence.

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. Think about just the improbability of your seeing this video. When was the last time the mainstream press has circulated a snuff film? The average person is embarrassed to watch a person die. It's exploitive. Even when America was fixated on beheaded hostages, our television gatekeepers refused to broadcast the footage. Many horrific war killing moments have found their way unto Youtube, which antiwar activists could only hope would find wider distribution, if only to bring home the inhumanity of our soldiers' deeds. It never happens. The western press is running with this story because it demonizes the apparently naked inhumanity of Islam. Muslims stone women, hang gays, look: the bastards shoot their own people arbitrarily. Curiously our media doesn't make hay with the hapless victims of US snipers. The Neda Soltani snuff footage hit internet shores prepackaged with a smiling mug, and a name that translated means "the voice." Could a casting director have picked a better title character to represent Iran's repressed? The western press is even poised to outdo the Muslims in indignant piety, already lauding Neda as a martyr, whom we are informed should launch a thousand Shiite funeral processions. Western pundits compare Neda to the first Shiite martyr, the grandson of Mohammed himself. Of course, also showing excessive Islamic sensitivity, western reporters readily dismiss the vanishing of Neda's body, to the Muslim tradition of hasty burials. For the record, in case you missed it, Neda dies onscreen from an apparent gunshot. We do not see the bullet strike, nor now can anyone habeas corpus. If the scenario was acted entirely, given the success with which the girl's face is being made into an icon, young Neda's life is probably as utterly expendable now as already depicted. You think you're mourning Neda now, imagine her fate if this is a hoax. OR the gunman could just as well have been a US black-op hit-man who had his eye on the videographers approaching innocent Neda. The US military has long admitted that special forces are already operating in Iran. If the Iranian forces are shooting civilian protesters, what's the harm of helping them out where there's a camera ready? When we're not meant to see it, the soldiers shoot the cameramen too. It could be the work of Moussavi henchmen, who are

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. A hit by the Libyans for Barack to help put a lid on this scandal? Well you speculate some... (Oh, Tony! Barack is not like that at all!) Sure he is. Certainly the government he heads is! I don't doubt it for a second. This reminds me of the President of Guatemala who has been just accused by an assassinated dead man of having murdered him. Luckily, unlike this victim of the CIA and Obama, he taped his accusation on youtube and it begins... 'if you are hearing this, then I am already dead.' And he is! See the video The Unspeakable Murder of Rodrigo Rosenberg (English subtitles) and the second part The Unspeakable Murder of Rodrigo Rosenberg Marzano (English sub.) part 2/2 A side note to this report about the CIA murder of this tortured American-held POW, is the last words this man made to Human Rights Watch which were... "Where were you when I was being tortured in American prisons?" Good question, Fakhiri. I went to the Human Rights Watch website again and it is amazing how this group never sees wars of aggression as being human rights violations. There's nothing about US occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan there! Seems to simply have escaped their interest or concern! They, at best, have been like a gnat to the US government at times, but in the meantime, they usually are absolutely MIA. Fakhiri's murder case is case in point.

“Free” Elections in Iraq and Afghanistan

Like the one that installed Puppet Dictator al Maliki in Iraq and the one that installed Puppet Dictator Kharzai in Afghanistan... Where the people were giving a list of who they were allowed to elect as "their" leaders and a much longer list of those who they were Forbidden to vote for. Neither of these two countries have ever had Democracy and probably never will. The whole notion of a rigged election enforced by grim looking Uniformed Thugs with Submachine Guns is now so deeply ingrained in their cultures... That's how they'll see their "free" choices imposed by Washington. The same way their "free" choices were imposed by Moscow. Or Saddam. They're given a list of people they can or cannot vote for, there's a bunch of goons with guns standing around, who don't even speak their languages, telling them they have Freedom... just like the Russians did. They know the drill, it's their whole experience with elections. They were Hereditary Dictatorships aka Kingdoms before they were Dictatorships where they line up and vote for who the Goons with Guns tell them to elect.

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) Geopolitical reasons always dictate who the world corporate press declares as being righteous and who is denounces as being villainous in these conflicts. The US and its European allies have definitely tilted towards using India as regional ally against China and Russia, and India wants the end of Tamil rebellion, both inside India itself, and also inside Sri Lanka. That's enough to spin the conflict as it is being done. While the 'Security Council' with the name of the United Nations attached to itself is calling for the Tamil insurrection to lay down its arms, we sincerely doubt that it will ever do anything to protect the Tamil population from slaughter at the hands of Sri Lanka's government. It certainly hasn't in the past.

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. It's a level of sociopathy wherein one has a fetish for causing pain, or even death, and becomes sexually aroused by it. The same standard can be applied to torturers. Those who do the "dirty work" themselves, and those who direct their actions, such as George Bush and Richard Cheney. Their clones John and Sarah as well, and those who, knowing the bastards were engaged in these unholy perversions, supported them anyway. There's another Legal standard, "accomplice before and/or after the fact". This has also been often used in Death Penalty cases, sometimes the "first to squeal, gets the deal" will be the one who actually pulled the trigger. And get a life sentence while his partners in crime get the needle, or the gas in California or the bullet in Utah. The standards for determining "torture" and "war crimes" used to convict the Nazis, and lately Saddam Hussein and many of his friends and family, also convicts Richard Cheney and his meat-puppet George Bush. ...and the people who support them. People like Bobby Jindal and Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, the people who VOTED for them. I'm often told that this is overly harsh, people say stupid crap like the Torturers keep us safe. But the only way a Torturer can accomplish his job is if he or she enjoys it. On an extremely basic sexual level. Torture, like serial murder, is a vicious form of rape. People tell me "How dare you say that! My son, daughter, husband, father---whoever--- works at Abu Ghraib or Khandahar or Guantanamo" Hey, the fact that the Perverts are related to the whiners who say that doesn't make the Perverts any less guilty. Your son or daughter works at one of the Torture Centers, your son or daughter is a Rapist. It is EXACTLY that simple. The Torturers keep us safe? Are you sure? Do you REALLY want to trust the future governance of our nation to Perverts who get their rocks off to killing or hurting people? They're "only doing their jobs"? They're not forced to take the job. They seek out the job because it gives them an opportunity to exercise Ultimate Control over another human being, and, because they, like Bush and Cheney and Jindal and Gingrich, are physical cowards... they have to have helpless victims. They have to have their Gang back them up on everything. They took the job not out of Patriotism or a sense of Duty, nothing nearly that noble. They took the job because they enjoy doing it, and some Dumbass Dubya appointee hired them to do it and gave them immunity. The only substantial difference between them and the dude strapped to a table with a needle in his arm, THEY have the support of "our" Government. And enough people who are Stupid enough to support them unconditionally. One other thing,.. A determination of somebody

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

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. It should be noted too, that the U.S. Air Force and other military have supplied various countries, Turkey, Iraq, Russia Soviet and post-Soviet... with tactical, logistical and materiel support for their Extermination Campaigns against the Kurds. When a Bu'ush Regime supporter starts with the sob stories about how the Kurds were abused by Saddam, remember that. The Bushi'ites have no concern for any ethnic group, any human rights or freedoms. In fact there are pictures of U.S. state and defense department officials shaking hands and yukking it up with Saddam in the days following the March 19th attack. And official statements that the gas attack had been done by the Iranian troops. This is old news, certainly, but the Propaganda Campaign is being ramped up to "justify" the Murder Campaign begun in Iraq 6 years ago this evening. Ari Fleischer went on record saying that Saddam Hussein had orchestrated 9/11. He said this not 6 years ago but 6 DAYS ago. So, what's a Truth Activist to do? All we can do, keep plugging along and correct the Lies of the war-pigs, keep exposing them for the murdering lying thieves they truly are. Now the same people who told us about Iraq having a million pounds of WMDs are telling us about the New, Scary Boogie-Man State, Iran, having Weapons of Mass Destruction and saying that we need to destroy Iran. This, too, is old news, but again, the Manipulative Ones keep putting out their same old tired lies, so we have to keep reminding them, sometimes gently and sometimes angrily and in a manner quite cross... Of the fact that they Lie through their teeth.

“Saddam and the Third Reich”… the REAL Connection.

Not the hype they're promoting on the Hysteria International Channel, in an attempt to justify the violent conquest of Iraq to seize the assets of the country and turn them over to Exxon Mobil and other Corporate Partners of the CheneyBush Company. Nope, the most solid connection is, once again, the Bush Family. Their banking enterprises provided money laundering for both the Third Reich and for Saddam Hussein. Since the Military Propaganda Committee are apparently going to try to drown us out, on this soon to be seventh year of the Invasion and Occupation OOOPSIE I was supposed to say "Liberation" , right? I'll point out once again because the Right Wing are kind of Stupid and forget easily, and I'll type it Really Slowly because they can't read very fast,... The stated reasons for invading Iraq were straight up unadulterated Lies. The Koalition of the Killing were NOT liberating Iraq, NOT even looking for the non-existent weapons of mass destruction, NOT fighting for freedom in any sense of the word. But maybe the Uniform-Heads can repeat those lies often enough that at least they, themselves, will believe it. Or maybe they understand that their stated reasons are Bullshit and just don't give a damn. In which case they and everybody who still supports the War are guilty of Murder. Murder of Iraqi Civilians and American Soldiers and Koalition of the Killing Soldiers as well. They have blood on their greedy claws and if they're still proud of it, they should stop calling themselves Americans. But they won't and we all know it. They'll insist that everybody who doesn't agree with their Conquest is somehow Anti-American. I'd like to give them some credit, any credit I could think of, maybe that they're drugged or brainwashed, but no, that wouldn't be true. They know they're committing Evil and continue to do it, and rejoice in doing it. They know they're lying but continue to lie. They know they're baby-killing murdering coward scum, and that it violates every law of God and man, but they'll continue doing it. Happy Anniversary. You have the blood of over 4700 Americans on your nasty little hands, and a literally countless number of Iraqi civilians.

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. The reason I bring it back up is because our Latest IDF Apologist/Propagandist keeps using the same notion the Others did, that we're somehow "ignorant" of Middle East History merely because we don't cite the History Textbooks they use in the Tel Aviv Public Schools. To bring it on down, lest I be accused of being "unhinged", if I were to enter into a discussion on Recent European History and, let's say, just for giggles, pointed out that the British Public School textbooks say that the IRA are a bunch of terrorists (U.S. textbooks say the same stupid shit) and the insinuation that the Potato Famine was caused not by the British Overlords shipping out ALL the grain produced in Ireland, (even though it's documented in shipping records, number (daily)of hundreds of tons of wheat shipped to England on one page and number of Irish Children dead in a sidebar on the same page) But if I were to cite EXCLUSIVELY British History Texts as approved by Her Majesty Bess2 as an accurate portrayal of Irish History I would not be Taken Seriously. Especially if I were to Arrogantly demand that the English version be the ONLY version accepted as valid for the discussion. At that point not only would I be a Jingoistic Nutter I would also be an "Arse". To make a further point, there's a Texas History Society who did a special that gets repeated on the Hysteric Channel and National Geographic Channel about the Alamo. Which is what I wrote thereof c. 2 years ago. Seems that even though the only written accounts of what happened to David Crockett and the other "defenders" after the walls were breached, Were Written By Mexican Soldiers... And that even though the one most in question with the Freaks is one that asserted that General Antonio Jose y Maria Lopez (de Santa Ana) ordered a War Crime to be committed... Declaring the Texians to be "Unlawful combatants" (sound familiar, Trolls? Right Wingers? anybody? ... Bueller? ... anybody?) and Killing the Prisoners. Including but not limited to one Colonel David Crockett. In spite of this being evidence of War Crimes committed by the person who wrote it, it's called into question Because We Are Supposed To Believe The John Wayne Version Wherein Davy Crockett Died In Battle... And if we don't, we're, And I can not possibly make shit like this up, it takes a truly demented soul to think of it "undermining the Global War On Terror" because Our Troops are engaged in a war with the Brown-skinned Hordes and if they were taught to question the History as Told By The U.S. Government, why, they might

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. The people responsible for this vandalism said that the bombing of the UN was all a big mistake and that is exactly the same excuse the US government used when it once bombed the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. I guess it was also 'a mistake', too that they used White Phosphorus as a chemical weapon on civilians once again, this time at the Gaza UN HQ? Hey Saddam, your spirit lives on inside The Jewish State! UN accuses Israel over phosphorus Oh, by the way, the photo used was of a victim of the illegal US Pentagon use of White Phosphorus on civilians in Fallujah, Iraq back in 2004, but the White Phosphorus Israel used on the United Nations HQ is most likely actually produced in Pine Bluff, Arkansas for the Joint Munitions Command. Be sure to check out their video there on that link ( by just punching on 'JMC stands for') about what a wonderful job they do, producing and using White Phosphorus on civilians around the world. Pentagon terrorist troops, both US and Israeli, just love the stuff, and I hear that the benefits for working there are fantastic! Wonderful people! Wonderful Americans! These Americans working for the Joint Munitions Command are believers in torture and terrorism like would make Adolph Hitler feel proud!
