Hu and Singh, stable relations image India, no 'linchpin' in US strategy against China Shastri Ramachandaran via sadh, Wednesday, Jun 13 2012, 1:41am
In January, when the Obama administration came out with its ambition of a military "pivot" to Asia, it caused confusion and unease in the region. Earlier this month, speaking at the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore, which was attended by most Asian defense ministers, US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta eschewed the term "pivot" and referred to a "rebalancing" toward Asia.

milfuneral.jpg image US military suicides average one per day Jonathan Terbush via stan, Friday, Jun 8 2012, 10:44am
The principal cause of military suicides is 'burnout;' a term used to cover a multitude of causes, not least among them is fighting illegal, dishonorable, Corporate wars for profit against innocent people. As the jarring contradiction between military indoctrination and the sordid reality on the ground hits home, troops resort more and more to booze, narcotics and amphetamines in futile attempts to avoid facing responsibility for murdering civilians and fighting gangster wars of Corporate appropriation. But as we all know avoidance tactics only delay the inevitable, overwhelming crisis.

It is important to place Pfc Bradley Manning in this context; this brave young soldier is not only doing his comrades a service by exposing Pentagon war crimes, he is FIGHTING overwhelming odds against an inherently corrupt criminal system that cares not for honor, justice and the moral right, but serves the interests of criminal Corporate elites -- isn't that right, Mr Dick 'KBR' Cheney?

WASHINGTON, Jun 5, 2012 (IPS) - France and Germany were prepared in spring 2005 to negotiate on an Iranian proposal to convert all of its enriched uranium to fuel rods, making it impossible to use it for nuclear weapons, but Britain vetoed the deal at the insistence of the United States, according to a new account by a former top Iranian nuclear negotiator.

Retreat from Kabul - 1842 image Afghanistan behind the Media Facade Eric Margolis via reed, Tuesday, May 29 2012, 12:17am
One of my favorite artists was the superb Victorian painter Elizabeth Butler who captured in oil the triumphs and tragedies of the British Empire. Her haunting painting, “The Retreat from Kabul, ” shows the sole survivor of a British army of 16,500, Dr. William Brydon, struggling out of Afghanistan in January, 1842. All the rest were killed by Afghan tribesmen after a futile attempt to garrison Kabul. (story and 2 images)

America has finally revealed its true COWARDLY colors when facing an opponent with the capability of delivering a devastating retaliatory response. It's tail between legs, run and hide as fast as you can, US Congress; but Israel knows it MUST attack! Who knows the regional situation better than besieged Israel? America is easily forced into a conflict if Israel attacks -- America has no choice, Obama is as weak as piss and the Israelis know it! (story and 1 image)

Performing puppets, Medvedev and Obama at G8 image Talk is cheap, Medvedev - a show of Force is required Gleb Bryanski via ben, Friday, May 18 2012, 11:12pm
We've heard it all before, Russia making 'threatening' noises but DOING NOTHING DEFINITIVE to support their 'hot air;' Putin was notorious for making ineffective, threatening 'noises!'

Consider for a moment the MANY regions/areas that Russia is able to legally intervene and challenge criminal US/NATO, and it becomes clear, the criminally corrupt Russian leadership is colluding with western criminal elites. A show of opposition must be maintained by performing political puppets in order to perpetuate the myth/ILLUSION of opposing superpowers. Until we witness a REAL reversal of US/NATO military expansionism -- you can blow your hot air (appropriately) out your COWARDLY, colluding arse, Russia (and China).

text Thousands Plan Protests Against NATO Chicago Summit poppy, Saturday, May 12 2012, 12:23am
Bush once let it slip but got it right; the NATO/US/Banker/Corporatist alliance promoting permanent WAR, murder and PLUNDER for the personal gain of the elite few, are simply modern day CRUSADERS -- nothing distinguishes them from the paid mercenaries the Vatican dispatched to destroy the competing church of Byzantium and relieve it of its huge stores of gold, silver and other wealth. History records that under the GUISE of liberating the 'Holy Land' Byzantium was duly sacked and its wealth appropriated by murdering, thieving MERCENARIES in the service of the Vatican -- the Templars being the most conspicuous mercenary force answering only to the Pope in Rome!

text Military Dishonour and Corporate Wars for Profit tran, Sunday, May 6 2012, 10:40pm
Regardless of all the (now known) lies and feeble propaganda, ALL today’s wars are fought for Corporate PROFIT – filthy money! Where is the HONOUR in that? Indoctrinated soldiers were led to believe that Saddam Hussein was responsible for 9/11 -- an internal US/Mossad black flag operation in the same CRIMINAL, TRAITOROUS tradition as the USS Liberty attack. The American Reichstag burning (9/11) was 'necessary' in order to launch and justify Corporate America’s ILLEGAL, invasive, corporate WARS of PLUNDER! (story and 1 comment)

Naive American youth trained to kill for the Banker and Corporate elite image Violence USA: The Warfare State and the Brutalizing of Everyday Life Henry A Giroux via baz, Saturday, May 5 2012, 12:17am
Since 9/11, the war on terror and the campaign for homeland security have increasingly mimicked the tactics of the enemies they sought to crush. Violence and punishment as both a media spectacle and a bone-crushing reality have become prominent and influential forces shaping American society. As the boundaries between "the realms of war and civil life have collapsed," social relations and the public services needed to make them viable have been increasingly privatized and militarized.(1) The logic of profitability works its magic in channeling the public funding of warfare and organized violence into universities, market-based service providers and deregulated contractors. The metaphysics of war and associated forms of violence now creep into every aspect of American society. (story and 1 image)

Russia under gutless, squeaking mouse Putin, allowed itself to be surrounded by Western offensive missile and radar systems. It was CLEAR at the time these moves to slow-choke Russia should have been immediately RESISTED with force -- the cowardly Americans tested and won that move and more including offensive installations on yellow dog China's doorstep.

General Peter Leahy image Oz must not get too close to the US Peter Leahy via mitch, Wednesday, Apr 11 2012, 10:50am
Former Army chief, General Peter Leahy, sounds a tactful warning about our one-sided relationship with the US. Specialists are aware that the US is targeting China at Australia's great expense; local defence chiefs are under no illusions regarding the greatest potential threat to Oz security and it doesn't emanate from China! Of course the Americans would like us to think it does, however, there is no denying that Indonesia continues to present the greatest potential threat to Oz security! (story and 1 image)

The US military has wasted no time exercising its power over its recently acquired new colony, Australia! Oz security has been compromised further by reports that the criminal US military will soon launch surveillance and armed Drones from Oz soil, further exacerbating strained relations with China and other nations in the region. The Oz public should never forget that it was treasonous Labor leader Juliar Gillard who signed away our regional security by allowing the warring yanks to build FIVE full scale, nuclear capable, military basses on Oz soil! No prizes for guessing which peaceful Asian superpower the marauding yanks are targeting from OUR shores. (story and 1 image)

There are many disturbing aspects to criminally hijacked America today, not least of which is the very clear attitude the UNREPRESENTATIVE, minority Banker and Corporate ruling elite have toward the rest of the world. Modern criminal America has proven emphatically that it does not wish to share or enter into any equitable arrangement with any other nation or people in any regard whatsoever.
