Obama’s Afghanistan speech: An exercise in political duplicity

By Bill Van Auken, 23 June 2011.
In his nationally televised speech Wednesday night, President Barack Obama announced a minimal withdrawal of US troops from the nearly decade-old war in Afghanistan. Obama’s proposal represented a tacit admission of the failure of the US intervention in Afghanistan and of the immense crisis of American capitalism to which a decade of multi-trillion-dollar expenditures on militarism has substantially contributed.
In concrete terms, Obama’s withdrawal proposal was crafted to give the US military command nearly everything it wanted, while helping him to get through his next …

Les Nations Unies tentent de dissimuler les meurtres de l’OTAN des civils en Afghanistan

Read the original (English) version here.
Par Martin Iqbal, 12 juin 2011. Traduction par Irradiee.
Une déclaration de presse 11 Juin de la Mission d’Assistance des Nations Unies en Afghanistan (UNAMA) présente le mois de mai 2011 comme le mois le plus meurtrier pour les civils afghans depuis 2007. Toutefois cette annonce dissimule une tentative extrêmement pernicieuse pour couvrir les meurtres de l’OTAN de civils dans les territoires occupés d’Afghanistan.
Dans son rapport, UNAMA rapporte les cas, en relation à des conflits, de 368 civils tués et 593 blessés parmi les civils …

Humanitarian Neo-colonialism: Framing Libya and Reframing War

The world community is being subtly brainwashed to accept the radical neo-colonial policy of ‘humanitarian’ military intervention
Creative Destruction Part III
By F. William Engdahl. Global Research, May 4, 2011.
The most remarkable facet of NATO’s war against Libya is the fact that “world opinion,” that ever so nebulous thing, has accepted an act of overt military aggression against a sovereign country guilty of no violation of the UN Charter in an act of de facto neo-colonialism, a ‘humanitarian’ war in violation of basic precepts of the laws of nations. The …

Welcome to the violent world of Mr. Hopey Changey

By John Pilger, 26 May 2011.
When Britain lost control of Egypt in 1956, Prime Minister Anthony Eden said he wanted the nationalist president Gamal Abdel Nasser “destroyed… murdered… I don’t give a damn if there’s anarchy and chaos in Egypt”. Those insolent Arabs, Winston Churchill had urged in 1951, should be driven “into the gutter from which they should never have emerged”.
The language of colonialism may have been modified; the spirit and the hypocrisy are unchanged. A new imperial phase is unfolding in direct response to the Arab uprising …

Anatomy of a Murder: How NATO Killed Qaddafi Family Members

By Cynthia McKinney, May 29, 2011.
How many times must a parent bury a child?
Well, in the case of Muammar Qaddafi it’s not only twice: once for his daughter, murdered by the United States bombing on his home in 1986, and again on 30 April 2011 when his youngest son, Saif al Arab, but yet again for three young children, grandbabies of Muammar Qaddafi killed along with Saif at the family home.
Now, I watched Cindy Sheehan as she bared her soul before us in her grief; I cried when Cindy cried. …

False Flag Terror & State Secrecy: A Suppressed History

Daniel Ellsberg: “Secrets … Can Be Kept Reliably … For Decades … Even Though They Are Known to THOUSANDS of Insiders”
Washington’s Blog, Wednesday May 25, 2011.
Judges, prosecutors and journalists all know that collusion happens every day. As I noted last year:
Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme was a conspiracy. The heads of Enron were found guilty of conspiracy, as was the head of Adelphia. Numerous lower-level government officials have been found guilty of conspiracy. See this, this, this, this and this.
Time Magazine’s financial columnist Justin Fox writes:
Some financial market conspiracies are real …

The Last Word on Osama Bin Laden

By James Corbett, 24 May, 2011.

This is James Corbett of corbettreport.com with the last word on Osama Bin Laden.
Osama Bin Laden was one of the 54 children of Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden, a construction magnate who made his fortune by cozying up to the royal family of Saudi Arabia.

In 1976 Salem bin Laden, Osama’s half-brother, co-founded Arbusto Energy with George W. Bush.

US, Pakistan Near Open War; Chinese Ultimatum Warns Washington Against Attack

By Webster G. Tarpley, Ph.D. May 20, 2011.
China has officially put the United States on notice that Washington’s planned attack on Pakistan will be interpreted as an act of aggression against Beijing. This blunt warning represents the first known strategic ultimatum received by the United States in half a century, going back to Soviet warnings during the Berlin crisis of 1958-1961, and indicates the grave danger of general war growing out of the US-Pakistan confrontation.
“Any Attack on Pakistan Would be Construed as an Attack on China”
Responding to reports that China …
