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 …

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 …

No-fly zone: Clouding words of war

By Tarak Barkawi.
Phantasms from the 1990s are upon us: no-fly zones; the rhetoric of humanitarian war in Washington, Europe and the UN; guarantees that no US ground troops will be deployed; an air war which alone cannot decisively affect earthbound events.
President Obama swung for ringing tones in his statement on Libya, condemning idleness in the face of merciless tyrants who brutally assault innocents.
In the legal codes through which the international community acknowledges so untoward a happening as war, the UN resolved to protect civilians and create a cordon sanitaire around …

Liberals Willing to Trade Blood and Treasure for Oil Company Profits Under Obama

By Eric Blair.
It’s perplexing to see a high level of support for the unprovoked bombing of Libya on so-called “progressive” websites.
There has been an endless stream of humanitarian propaganda flowing from these sites trying to convince average liberals that the “human thing to do” is to rain down tomahawk missiles with depleted uranium to bring freedom and democracy to an oppressed people.
Huffington Post ran a piece by Ed Schultz titled Why I Support President Obama’s Decision to Invade Libya where he described his reasoning as follows:
…President Obama explained this won’t …

Brookings Institute/ex-CIA Wonk Reveals Middle East Agenda

By Tony Cartalucci.
“Which Path to Persia?” was a Brookings Institute report written in 2009 describing in excruciating detail the Anglo-Americans’ designs against Iran. It included plans for provoking war with Iran, arming and supporting terrorists within Iran, and the funding and organizing of a color revolution, all within the admitted backdrop, not of protecting the continental United States from a dangerous Iran, but rather protecting American hegemony in the Middle East. And of course, the overthrow and reformation of Iran serves to …

Plus ça Change: The So-Called ‘Revolutions’ in North Africa

Posted: February 23, 2011 by crescentandcross.
Interview with writer and radio host Stephen Lendman.
Press TV: Do you think that the US is being caught by surprise?
Lendman: I do not think that Washington is at all caught by surprise. I think the hand of Washington is very much involved in everything going on throughout the region and not just in the Egypt — certainly in Yemen, Tunisia and Algeria.
Even the Saudis are a little bit worried. For the first time since the Saudis established what they call a government — they have …

Frauds of WikiLeaks

Thursday, February 10, 2011 – by Staff Report.
This morning’s story in the Guardian that US diplomats believed Saudi Arabia to have overstated their oil reserves should ring alarm bells around the energy world. Every time there is a debate about whether Opec should raise production to lower oil prices, many commentators argue it is irrelevant: that the Middle East doesn’t have as much oil as it says and that it can’t raise production enough to bring prices down. If this is true, it has serious consequences for the oil …

New Revelations Show WikiLeaks Psyops

Thursday, February 03, 2011 – by Staff Report.
“In a shocking revelation contained in the latest Wikileaks document dump, previously secret information indicates that Al Qaeda now has the nuclear bomb and intends to use it. The documents, which were fed to Wikileaks from anonymous whistle-blowers and passed along to The Daily Telegraph for publication, show that a leading atomic regulator privately warned that the world stands on the brink of a nuclear 9/11.
Al Qaeda, which has sourced nuclear material and recruited rogue scientists to build so-called ‘dirty bombs,’ is …
