The Iraqis who paid Albright’s blood price

Monday 16 May 2011, by Felicity Arbuthnot.
It was May 12 1996 when I got the call. Kathy Kelly, a peace activist who constantly risked the wrath of the US government for her compassion, was phoning from Chicago, stunned.
Washington’s UN ambassador Madeleine Albright had just appeared on Sixty Minutes, Kelly told me.
Presenter Lesley Stahl had confronted her guest on the US-driven embargo on Iraq.
“We have heard that a half million children have died,” said Stahl. “I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is …

Israeli troops kill unarmed Palestinian protestors on borders

By Patrick O’Connor.
Israeli soldiers yesterday killed at least fifteen Palestinians and wounded many more as they suppressed protests held at border posts facing Syria, Lebanon, and Gaza to mark the 63rd anniversary of the founding of the Zionist state.
This latest massacre of Palestinian civilians inflicted by the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) again demonstrates the Israeli government’s brazenly unlawful operations. The situation also exposes the Obama administration’s “humanitarian” pretext for the bombardment of Libya.
NATO’s war is supposedly necessary to protect unarmed civilians from the possibility of being killed by government forces—but …

Pakistan: US has Overstayed Welcome

Amidst drone attacks & bombings, Pakistan threatens to strand US forces in Afghanistan
By Tony Cartalucci.
Bangkok, Thailand May 14, 2011 – After a double bombing in Pakistan’s north that resulted in over 80 deaths, the Western media was quick to report an unverified phone-call made from an “undisclosed location” to Reuters and AFP claiming the Taliban was responsible.
Reuters stated, “Now Pakistani rulers, President Zardari and the army will be our first targets. America will be our second target,” Ehsanullah Ehsan, a spokesman for Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan …

It Begins: US Starting the Baluchi Insurrection

By Tony Cartalucci.
Bangkok, Thailand May 13, 2011 – In the shadow of the “Bin Laden” media circus and increasingly aggressive rhetoric between Washington and Islamabad, the corporate-financier funded NGOs that fomented the “Arab Spring” are now cultivating a united Baluchi front ahead of a proposed US-funded Baluchistan insurrection. As early as 2006, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace identified Pakistan’s Baluchistan province as a potential point of leverage against Islamabad and an opportunity to assert foreign …

Libya: US-NATO Axis Aims to Divide Country and End Sovereignty; End Chinese Energy Partnership; Prevent African Independence from Globalist Financial System

Gaddafi was advocating to end African Union subservience to EU/US by pushing for African Development Bank and replacing Franc with African currency;

Western policy of funding and arming al Qaeda-linked militants, Islamists and cutthroat killers in Libya mirrors US Afghanistan policy;

Mainstream media focus on Misrata can be understood from an economic/industrial context: the city hosts the headquarters of the Libyan Iron and Steel Company (Lisco) that exports over 60 percent of its products with nearly 50 percent going to Italy and Spain, as well as Libyan National Oil …

Libyan Rebels Killing Civilians in Benghazi

By Stephen Lendman / May 12th, 2011.
In London, at a June 1999 anti-Yugoslavia war rally, Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter scathed US and UK leaders, saying:
Let us face the truth… (N)either Clinton nor Blair gives a damn about the Kosovar Albanians. This action has been another blatant and brutal assertion of US power using NATO as its missile… to consolidate… American domination of Europe.
Today, Obama doesn’t give a damn about Libyans, any more than about Iraqis, Afghans or working Americans. At issue only is Washington wanting unchallenged dominance everywhere, including over …

7/7: the terror drill, the military explosives, and the Israeli connection

By the Editor.
The official 7/7 account, as with 9/11, is a pack of lies. Though several independent researchers have done a great job in exposing the myth, it has been bolstered by a faux inquest, a fawning corporate media, and a largely unquestioning, overly trusting public.
Most notably, John Hill’s film 7/7 Ripple Effect reviews the evidence and lays out an alternate (and much more credible) narrative. I highly recommend it; you can view it here.
7/7 exhibits eerie similarities with the 9/11 cover-up including the simultaneous drills taking place …

Mission accomplished: US uses bin Laden hoax to expand basis for so-called War On Terror

Resolution expands basis for war on terror
The Washington Times, Wednesday, May 11, 2011.
Less than two weeks after U.S. special operations commandos killed Osama bin Laden, a resolution viewed as an expansion of the legal basis for the global war on terror is moving through Congress.
The House Armed Services Committee added language to the fiscal 2012 Defense Authorization bill on Wednesday that would define the current war on al Qaeda to include the Taliban and affiliated armed groups, affirming the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia’s interpretation of the …
