Designate US a State Sponsor of Terror

WTF. What act of terrorism has North Korea sponsored lately or ever? Are we talking about the weird assassination of Kim Jong-Un's debauched rival heir? That was a hit, not an indiscriminate act, even as our propagandists now pretend to feel North Korea's cross hairs. It was not even peanuts compared to capitalist corporate malfeasance and western state sponsored shock doctrine. If "State Sponsor of Terrorism" designation is an appellation controle sort of prerogative, like Public Enemy Number One, it's probably time to democratically crowd source a citizen's intervention. Designate the US a state sponsor of terrorism. Bring on all the sanctions, terms of probation, and ankle monitoring devices required by law. Disarm our terrorist mercenaries and advisors. Throw them in Guantanamo and render them to the interrogation centers of the other rogue regimes who aid and abet state terrorism. Freeze our and their assets and check Priceline for last minute bookings at the Hague.

Obama drops Cuba from terrorism list, but should Cuba, or anyone, drop the US from their watch list?

Who is the most prolific supporter of terrorism? Even if you exclude state terrorism, economic terrorism, war, or proxy war, the US and its corporate partners are the undisputed heavyweights of sponsoring covert, behind the scenes, terrorist acts. A special ops veteran once told me that his standard issue combat rifle was the Kalashnikov.

Fred Hampton, 1970 Kent State victims weren’t murdered, they were murdered by the state

SO the tail-wagging-dog Twitterverse is aflame with indignation about an Urban Outfitters vintage Kent State University sweatshirt because its stains recall the 1970 bloody attack on antiwar protestors by the Ohio National Guard. As usual, objections of bad taste hinge on the notion that unofficial recollection of the tragedy is disrespectful to the memory of the victims and their families, overlooking that it was official speech stricture that caused the student deaths. How convenient for the state to embrace national tragedies to obscure its murderous role. The memorializing of state murders habitually sheds their context. The term "execution" used to distinguish murders committed by the state, now it encompasses the brutality of point-blank murder, perhaps once a monopoly of the state. Now recalling the "murder" of Fred Hampton for example, and not his execution at the hands of Chicago policemen, truncates accrediting his assassins, as if Hampton was killed by the brutality of his times or the confused racism of law enforcement back then, and not the state. The four students murdered at Kent State were murdered BY THE STATE, by in fact, KENT STATE. Instead of condemning Urban Outfitter's awkward sweatshirt as obscene, KSU could acknowledge the blood

US Global War Of Terror destabilization operation opens the ball in Venezuela

To "open the ball" is a dance expression the US cavalry borrowed to describe the initiation of a military engagement. Against Native American prey this usually meant to wake the village by firing into the teepees. The US has long been covertly trying to destabilize Venezuela, but recent developments indicate they're escalating "opposition protests" to Syrian proportions. Tunisia and Egypt may have been more spontaneous than the US-coordinated "Color Revolutions" along the former Soviet Bloc and in Iran, but the rollout of Arab Spring into Libya and Syra was entirely US-EU covert ops. With renewed "populist" uprisings cementing the encirclement of Russia, the US has detonated unrest in South America, determined to push the Venezuelan government to extremes. Next the UN will decide someone has exceded the bounds of human rights violations, ignoring of course the real Goliaths of that game.

“Turn off your cellphone” or police will light you up like the next Chris Dorner

STREAMING OF CONSCIOUSNESS ON BOSTON MARATHON BOMBING DENOUEMENT: DID YOU KNOW that law enforcement can tell you "If you want to live, turn off your cell phone."? That was shouted to an AP reporter tonight in Watertown, just before he heard officers shout "Fire in the hole" as they encircled a suspect. So they're chasing a marathon attendee whose face matches the surveillance video, who they can refer to as a suspect with impunity if he's dead so they're about to Dorner his ass (Remember Chris Dorner? Remember Waco? The gov-lit inferno, not the gov-neglected "Waco" redux.) to beyond facial recognition. Boston Marathon Bombing solved. 38940

The lynching of Preston John Porter Jr. by a mob from Limon and Colo. Springs

A propos of, let's say, LYNCHING. Colorado state history records 175+ lynchings, of mostly cattle rustlers and horse thieves. Boosters laud our state's few (5) racially-motivated lynchings, but in relation to Colorado's small portion of African- Americans, the incident rate is not insignificant. What's more, Colorado can tie any state for the worst race lynching ever, when in 1900, along the railroad tracks near Lake Station, black 16-year-old, 130 lb. Preston Porter Jr, innocent and probably mentally feeble, was burned at the stake by a cheering mob numbering over 300. 24035

State Terrorism raises the terror stakes

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev pledged this response to the Moscow subway blombings: "The measures to fight terrorism should be expanded, they should be more effective, more harsh, more cruel, if you please." Conceding, I believe, that in challenging state repression, it is the insurgent-variety terrorist who defines appropriate and just. 15683

But here in this graveyard, it’s still no man’s land…

The countless white crosses in mute witness stand To man's blind indiff'rence to his fellow man And to a whole generation That were butchered, and Damned. Sacrifice is something that makes holy. Not "something that makes dead". The last surviving Canadian veteran of World War One died last night. He was 15 when he enlisted, and when the Canuckistan Army found out they didn't send him into the meat grinder. That's good. There were millions of others not so lucky, many of them recruited using false ID and the Armies "unofficially" consented. Wink wink nudge nudge know what I mean, Ay? Make a (dead) man out of the lad. Then the segue into the REAL meat of the story, the "shared sacrifice" of Canucks and Yanks to "make a better (Superior Culture) world for the Afghans" Lyin' sacks of shit, those propagandists. 14969

The “difference” between an IED and a land-mine

Is the difference between a Militia Group (like those commanded by Washington) and the VietMinh or the Taliban "Insurgents" A matter of Semantic Perspective that's vital to propagandists, espicially if the Propagandists don't have anything better. It's the so-called "difference" between "conqueror" and "liberator" , USAF Bomber v Suicide Bomber Decapitation with a sword and decapitation with a .50 caliber round fired frim a Vulcan electric motorized Gatling gun. 14410

Money laundering record set in fine art

Curiously, you and I can't transfer $250.-- without the requisite agencies being notified, but an oligarch can spend $104.3 Million on Alberto Giacometti's Walking Man I and maintain anonymity. (For an iconic sculpture of a figure divested of possessions.) We can't take shampoo into the airport, but foreign intelligence operatives can cross borders and assassinate it-doesn't-matter-who without leaving a trace. Exactly whom is INTERPOL tracking or not tracking? For us there's a no-fly list. For the 007s and 000,000,007s there's a can-fly-with-impunity first class lounge.

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

Charges dropped against Phillip Garrido, Obama wants to look forward not back

The latest of Phillip Garrido's sex crimes occured in 1991, too far in the past to interest President Obama. Rehashing the injustices of 1990-91 would mean looking into American war crimes of the First Gulf War. To Obama's reconciliatory way of thinking, this would open a can of worms which could only lead to redressing subsequent US bombings of civilians, including actions by the recently deposed administration, and now the ongoing state terror against a growing variety of Muslim populations.

India terror suspect arrested then shot

A photographer in Manipur, India documented the arrest of terror suspect Chongkham Sanjit on July 23, and wound up witness to an execution. The pics are SFW: the death squad ducked their victim into the adjacent pharmacy. A red circle indicates the arrestee, the arrow in the photo below shows which way he is led to be killed. 8402

Problem solving by U.S. assassination

Word is out, confirming Seymore Hersh's alarming report of last year, about the Cheney/Bush special forces tasked with assassinating terrorism suspects. Where others do it, such paramilitary raids are called "death squads." While their existence is being admitted, Congress is upset they weren't told sooner about the extra-judicial homicide plans. But didn't President Bush put us all on notice in his 2006 State of the Union Address? What did you think he was snickering about when he said:   "All told, more than 3,000 suspected terrorists have been arrested in many countries. And many others have met a different fate. Let's put it this way: They are no longer a problem to the United States and our friends and allies." 8221

Sean Hannity & the Global War OF Terror

The quicker we get Sean Hannity waterboarded the better. But we can hope for better than merely shutting him up about whether or not waterboarding is torture. Let's figure out WHAT we can waterboard him for! 7693

Oh, that bad view from the Yad Vashem ‘museum’!

Yad Vashem is a Jewish State 'Holocaust Museum' with a bad view. It is a site set to 'remember' the slaughter of Jews in WW2 but it also sits with an actual physical view out over the local area where JEWISH Zionist TERRORISTS slaughtered their Arab Palestinian neighbors in the 1948 massacre at Deir Yassin .....Shhhh.... don't mention it, please. Yad Vashem fires employee who compared Holocaust to Nakba 7536

America’s good war against Yugoslavia?

The BBC today has a report that addresses this question some... See Horrors of KLA prison camps revealed ..Remember when all the Democrats helped stamped the American people into a 'humanitarian' adventurism to partition Yugoslavia in alliance with Pentagon bombs?

Obama wants to attack us still, says Iranian general

"We cannot claim that the (U.S.) Democrats are not warmongering like the Republicans. They are just as warmongering and mischievous, and they would like to do that (attack Iran)," Iran's top military commander, Major-General Hassan Firouzabadi said. 6857

Israel needs a new ‘security fence’ to protect women from former President Slick Moshe

Moshe Katsav was the Israeli political architect of that fixture of Apartheid Jewish State Israel, the so-called 'security fence', though it now seems that Jewish women have long needed a security fence to keep themselves safe from Slick Moshe! Ex-Israel head faces rape charge. ...Shame, too, on the big bad Palestinian grafitti artist for defacing that nice Israeli wall that Slick Moshe constructed. Bad 'anti-semite,' Bad Boy!

Protests in Israel against country’s military for targeting Gaza civilians

From Haaretz... Protests as IDF colonel who ruled for attacks on Gaza civilians starts as TAU lecturer ...And how many times have we at Not My Tribe had to listen to posters from the Israeli military propaganda Spam Gun here deny that their beloved Israeli military has ever deliberately targeted civilians in Gaza? I can't even begin to count the number myself since it has happened so often now. 6805

Israel, the welfare terrorist state

Look at all this freebie money they get, just to go out and terrorize others for Uncle Sam. Israel, U.S. formally sign new defense aid agreement ...'Under the new aid agreement, the U.S. will transfer $30 billion to Israel over 10 years, compared with $24 billion over the past decade.'
