Cameron and Obama -- note the juxtaposed subordination of Cameron image Puppet Clowns, Cameron and Obama -- "making progress!" [LOL!] baz, Thursday, Mar 15 2012, 2:14am
How many years has the USA and its puppet allies been "making progress" in Afghanistan and avoiding international war crimes courts? Take a wild guess then look at the language of the following report especially the oft repeated but UNDEFINED "mission" word. History dictates that America's 'mission' is criminal invasion, occupation, assassination, regime change, plunder and the mass murder of civilians; any dreamboat that thinks otherwise, after a DECADE of lost wars and recorded heinous crimes, is SORELY DELUDED!

Thanks to relentless promotion by Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, Bloomberg News, ABC, CBS, Oprah, celebrities and politicians of both corporate parties, along with right wing church groups and foundations, the Kony 2012 video has “gone viral.” Viewed on YouTube more than a hundred million times by now, it paints a vivid and simple picture, clear enough, its narrator says, for a five year old to understand [the propaganda con and 'perception management' strategy].

text Goldman Sachs Insider: Culture of Self-interest, Misrepresentation and Corruption Greg Smith via reed, Wednesday, Mar 14 2012, 9:22am
TODAY is my last day at Goldman Sachs. After almost 12 years at the firm — first as a summer intern while at Stanford, then in New York for 10 years, and now in London — I believe I have worked here long enough to understand the trajectory of its culture, its people and its identity. And I can honestly say that the environment now is as toxic and destructive as I have ever seen it.

Bradley Manning, prisoner of conscience imagePDF Document UN Torture Investigator Concludes Bradley Manning NOT Tortured sam, Tuesday, Mar 13 2012, 9:49am
Talk about GUTLESS! Read the linked pdf report from UN torture investigator regarding the treatment of Bradley Manning while incarcerated by the CRIMINAL civilian killing, US military and be sickened by his COWARDICE.

Manning was clearly subjected to persistent and inhuman psychological torture in a failed bid to break his spirit and coerce him into implicating glamour boy, Julian Assange of WikiLeaks. The good news is Bradley didn't break but was weakened over 18 months to the extent that he is being misrepresented as mentally unstable and not responsible for his actions when his chat logs -- published by "Wired" -- reveal very clearly that Manning's CONSCIENCE and moral convictions forced him to expose the criminal activity of the US military! So he wasn't 'technically' T-O-R-T-U-R-E-D, Mr Mendez UN reprehensible coward? (story and 1 image and 1 attached file)

Two rashers of bacon a day raises the odds of dying from heart disease and cancer by 20 per cent, a study has claimed. While red meat has been blamed for health problems before, the large-scale American study is one of the first to link it to a higher risk of dying. The data, from more than 120,000 men and women who were tracked for almost 30 years, was analysed by the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston. (story and 1 image)

Nine INNOCENT children savagely murdered image Afghanistan's My Lai/Haditha: An Atrocity to End the War Robert Dreyfuss via gan, Monday, Mar 12 2012, 9:01pm
Following routine bombings of wedding parties, hundreds killed in unchecked “night raids” by US Special Forces, the murders by the scandalous “kill team” in 2010, and, this year, the digitally recorded urination onto dead Afghans by Americans in uniform—not to mention the Koran burnings last month—it’s clear that there’s no hope of success for the “mission;” whatever that is?

Global un-Intelligence image Stratfor: Blood On Their Hands Khadija Sharife via sal, Sunday, Mar 11 2012, 8:21am
Even if we were to place epistemological and ethical questions aside, certain Stratfor's analysts are turning out to be rather twisted creatures. While some turn party tricks for intelligence, except in AIDS-infested Africa, others, such as Fred Burton – a counter-terrorism and security expert, alleged to frequently service US intelligence, are a tad aggressive. One of Fred's gems include: "The owner is a peacenik. He needs his head dunked in a full toilet bowl at Gitmo." So much for niceties. (story and 3 images)

text Stratfor emails reveal Regime Change and NATO/US takeover Agenda for Syria Finian Cunningham via keir, Thursday, Mar 8 2012, 6:17am
The Western governments' and mainstream media’s narrative of a one-sided humanitarian crisis in Syria is rapidly unwinding to reveal a self-serving deception to justify a re-run of Libya-style NATO conquest. In reality, it is the Western powers and their Israeli and Arab henchmen who are fuelling a humanitarian crisis and creating the conditions for all-out war. All of which, it should be said, constitutes criminality comparable to Nazi Germany’s wars of aggression.

text It's About Social Control NOT Security trish, Wednesday, Mar 7 2012, 8:11pm
American politicians constantly warn of the al-Qaeda bogey man and the threat posed to the USA by these mysterious media enemies. US citizens have been stripped of all their 'inalienable' rights by recent indefinite detention and extra-judical assassintion 'laws.' Totalitarian social control measures are now characteristic in the USA but few seem to notice and even less are willing to fight for their rights.

text NATO/US Appointed Puppet Libyan Leader Vows to Use Force on Breakaway Regions Chris Stephen via weaver, Wednesday, Mar 7 2012, 7:55am
After US/NATO backed rebel forces desecrated WWII graves in Libya, demonstrating to the WORLD that NATO appointed puppet Libyan leader, Islamist, Mustafa Abdul Jalil, has no control over the country whatsoever, today's 'damage control announcement' that force would be used to prevent regions declaring autonomy is simply a prelude to a new DICTATORSHIP but with NATO and the US behind it! At least Gaddafi ruled a unified nation in peace -- now watch and learn the true nature of NATO and US interventions and the implementation of proxy dictatorships in Libya and in other conquered States and territories.

text China: Rise, Fall and Re-Emergence as a Global Power Prof. James Petras via reed, Wednesday, Mar 7 2012, 6:29am
The study of world power has been blighted by Eurocentric historians who have distorted and ignored the dominant role China played in the world economy between 1100 and 1800. John Hobson’s[1] brilliant historical survey of the world economy during this period provides an abundance of empirical data making the case for China ’s economic and technological superiority over Western civilization for the better part of a millennium prior to its conquest and decline in the 19th century.

American hacker, Hector Xavier Monsegur, reputedly of LulzSec, whose NAME/identity has been plastered in every rag and digital journal around the globe -- goes down with other members of his group after FBI pressured him for the identities of other members -- offers of a lighter sentence were also used as inducements! Let it be a lesson to all the crewz; n-e-v-e-r reveal real identities to anyone; ANONYMITY is not just a label it is an IMPERATIVE, unless of course you wish to end up like Assange or the hapless LulzSec few.

The CRIMINAL obscenity that is corporate and banker controlled NATO and the US and its maniacal pursuit of corporate PROFIT and plunder has resulted in the world's most ghastly, horrendous crimes and injustices today; the Iraq travesty of over one million innocent civilians slaughtered speaks for itself; Obama's flagrantly criminal 'precision' Drone warfare campaign, which regularly slaughters innocent children and civilians continues unabated; but the Libyan obscenity that NATO and the US unleashed on the once FREE people of Libya has set a new standard in absolute degradation, horror and inhumanity.

Shock, incomprehension, fury. Americans are feeling these raw emotions as news keeps coming in of more attacks by Afghan government soldiers and officials on US and NATO troops. Six US troops were killed last week as a result of protests across Afghanistan following the burning of the Holy Quran by incredibly dim-witted [par for the course] American soldiers. “Aren’t they supposed to be our allies? We are over there to save them! What outrageous ingratitude,” ask angry, confused American occupiers. (story and 3 images)

It was political analyst Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya, in November 2006, who wrote in detail of US plans for the Middle East.

“The term ‘New Middle East’, was introduced to the world in June 2006, in Tel Aviv,†by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (who was credited by the Western media for coining the term) in replacement of the older and more imposing term, the “Greater Middle East”, he wrote.
