CFR President: No Evidence of Impending Gaddafi Massacre; Soros’ Human Rights Watch Boasts of Ties to Rebels; US Senate Discusses Ground Troops While UK Suggests Use of Mercenaries

Richard N. Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations and a State Department official in the first two years of the administration of George W. Bush, rejected claims that military intervention was necessary to prevent a civilian massacre by Gaddafi’s regime. “First, it is not clear that a humanitarian catastrophe was imminent in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi,”
Tom Malinowski, Washington director of Human Rights Watch, boasted of his organisation’s activities on the ground in Libya, working with forces “who have since risen to prominence in the opposition…he insisted …

John Pilger: Libya’s independence, not the nature of its regime, is intolerable to the West

By John Pilger, 06 April 2011.
The Euro-American attack on Libya has nothing to do with protecting anyone; only the terminally naive believe such nonsense. It is the West’s response to popular uprisings in strategic, resource-rich regions of the world and the beginning of a war of attrition against the new imperial rival, China.
President Barack Obama’s historical distinction is now guaranteed. He is America’s first black president to invade Africa. His assault on Libya is run by the US Africa Command, which was set up in 2007 to secure the …

Libya: The DC/NATO Agenda and the Next Great War

By Paul Craig Roberts.
In the 1930s, the US, Great Britain, and the Netherlands set a course for World War II in the Pacific by conspiring against Japan. The three governments seized Japan’s bank accounts in their countries that Japan used to pay for imports and cut Japan off from oil, rubber, tin, iron and other vital materials. Was Pearl Harbor Japan’s response?
Now Washington and its NATO puppets are employing the same strategy against China.
Protests in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, and Yemen arose from the people protesting against Washington’s tyrannical puppet governments. …

Ilan Pappe: Goldstone’s shameful U-turn

Ilan Pappe, The Electronic Intifada, 4 April 2011.
“If I had known then what I know now, the Goldstone report would have been a different document.” Thus opens Judge Richard Goldstone’s much-discussed op-ed in The Washington Post. I have a strong feeling that the editor might have tampered with the text and that the original sentence ought to have read something like: “If I had known then that the report would turn me into a self-hating Jew in the eyes of my beloved Israel and my own Jewish community in South …

Naming Names: Your Real Government

When dark deeds unfold, point the finger in this direction.
By Tony Cartalucci.
This is your real government; they transcend elected administrations, they permeate every political party, and they are responsible for nearly every aspect of the average American and European’s way of life. When the “left” is carrying the torch for two “Neo-Con” wars, starting yet another based on the same lies, peddled by the same media outlets that told of Iraqi WMD’s, the world has no choice, beyond …

Al Qaeda: Pawns of CIA Insurrection from Libya to Yemen

By Webster G. Tarpley, Ph.D. TARPLEY.net, April 3, 2011.
After two weeks of imperialist attack, Libya is being mangled by al Qaeda terrorists, civil war, NATO air raids, cruise missiles, Predator drones, and C-130 gunships – all made possible by the CIA-backed al Qaeda rebels of Cyrenaica. US, British, French, and Dutch commandos have taken leadership of the rebel forces, and are arming them with modern weapons in flagrant violation of the arms embargo specified in UN Security Council resolution 1973. Al Qaeda is also stealing heavy weapons on its own, …

Mounting evidence of CIA ties to Libyan rebels

By Patrick Martin.
Numerous press reports over the weekend add to the evidence that the Libyan rebels fighting the regime of Muammar Gaddafi are under the direction of American intelligence agencies. Despite the repeated claims by Obama administration officials that the rebels are a largely unknown quantity, it is becoming increasingly clear that key military leaders of the anti-Gaddafi campaign are well known to the US government and have longstanding relations with the CIA.
For better than two weeks there had been a virtual …

Al-Jazeera: An Island of Pro-Empire Intrigue

By Sukant Chandan, 26 March 2011.
The Empire admits: without Al-Jazeera, they could not have bombed Libya.
How did Al-Jazeera, once dubbed the ‘terror network’ by some and whose staff were martyred by US bombs in Iraq and Afghanistan, end up becoming the media war propagandist for yet another Western war against a small state of the Global South, Libya? We will not know the full details for some time; perhaps some wikileaks will help us understand later. But this much is already certain: the station is betraying gross political …

Al-Jazeera, tool of the elite?

By Max Ajl, March 26th, 2011.
MRZine has an interesting article up by Sukant Chandan on the contradictions within Al-Jazeera. Yoshie smartly pointed out a few weeks ago that the station is the tool of the Qatari ruling class, and like any ruling class, it wants something very simple: it wants to continue to rule. The Gulf Cooperation Council petro-bourgeoisie knows that opposition to the Zionist project animates Arab social mobilization. It knows that the Egyptian opposition was forged in the crucible of solidarity with the 2nd Palestinian …
