Fun & Fury @ The UN….

It’s good to experience some catharsis. This week, as you all know, has been a bit of a rough ride for the United Nations. Bush came out and gave us all a good few laughs, and then Ahmednejad and Chavez gave us all some much needed vocalization. What you may not have noticed is how the US media has been trying to skirt around the issues… A simple example: ABC News – unfortunately televised on MBC-4 (a Middle Eastern satelite channel which has recently taken to printing a disclaimer on all American News broadcasts in an attempt to purge themselves of responsibility for the crude lies they remain proxy to ) – has been juggling. Before my very eyes, I saw the newscaster, whose name I didn’t catch ( I just checked, and it appears to have been Taina Hernandez ) – sit around with a United Nations correspondant. She asked the correspondant about the ongoing...

So he’s on. At the United Nations. I missed most of what Kofi said… Here’s Bush making it sound like any democratic progress anywhere in the world must have been due to the influence of the United States. Painting pictures of misery worldwide, misery – we are to suppose – that will be alleviated by the actions of the United States. And I think of Afghanistan, and Iraq – and I think of the blood of innocents, and of orphaned children. “You have been fed conspiracy theories…” he tells us. We must support, he said – people who offer better alternatives than blowing yourself up. I agree. Give them nukes and rpg’s and they won’t need to blow themselves up….but he goes on… “My country desires peace”, he says. “Extremists in your midst spread propaganda”, he says… He claims he...

What Americans Should Know…

Incredibly, all the ‘news’ networks are flooded with items about the Isra…the Zionist soldier held by the Palestinians. Not surprisingly, most of these news items completely neglect to mention the fact that the Zionist occupation is holding and has been holding more than 9,000 Palestinian prisoners for years, most of whom are, by any definition of the word, civilians, and many of whom are children – legal minors. How many of those are actually undergoing some kind of legal process? Well, the numbers are pathetic. I’m not in the most lyrical of moods, so excuse the lackluster writing. I just can’t believe the horrific lack of shame exhibited by the news media. The news media that remains silent about incredible injustices perpetrated daily at the expense of women and children, is yet somehow willing to blow the capture of one soldier beyond all...

“Veteran journalist John Pilger recently wrote about one of PNAC’s founding members, Richard Perle: “I interviewed Perle when he was advising Reagan, and when he spoke about ‘total war,’ I mistakenly dismissed him as mad,” Pilger wrote. “He recently used the term again in describing America’s ‘war on terror.’ ‘No stages,’ he said. ‘This is total war. We are fighting a variety of enemies. There are lots of them out there. All this talk about first we are going to do Afghanistan, then we will do Iraq . . . this is entirely the wrong way to go about it. If we just let our vision of the world go forth, and we embrace it entirely and we don’t try to piece together clever diplomacy, but just wage a total war . . . our children will sing great songs about us years from now.’ ”” – America Pearl...

BBC NEWS | Americas | Guantanamo suicides ‘acts of war’ “The camp commander said the two Saudis and a Yemeni were ‘committed’ and had killed themselves in ‘an act of asymmetric warfare waged against us’.” Right. THEY KILLED THEMSELVES AT US! ‘Nuff Said.
