uschinaflags.jpg image The Russia-China Veto: Will it Contribute to Reversing the Tide of Global Warfare? Matthias Chang via stan, Thursday, Feb 9 2012, 9:54am
Mao Zedong famously declared that the “US is a paper tiger” and that in winning wars, it is the people that are paramount not weapons. Atomic weapons will not enable a country to win the war. If there was one statement that galvanised the Chinese people to stand up and be counted in the face of open threats of nuclear war and oppression, this was it. Mao Zedong was correct on all counts from a strategic standpoint. And one need not be a communist to appreciate this strategic victory in propaganda warfare, when at the material time China was not even a nuclear power. The army of the People’s Republic of China was essentially a peasant army but one highly motivated and disciplined. China at the material time took a consistent stand in opposing hegemony, standing up to the armed aggressions of the Anglo-American war party in South America, Middle East and Asia.

Since the original release of the TV episode (below), scientists have developed a human transmissible strain of the deadly bird flu virus and puppet president Obama has legally granted the criminally corrupt US military the power to indefinitely detain anyone without trial or charge-- it doesn't get much worse, be warned!

ROME — An Italian computer science professor whose development research was appropriated by Google, launched a new search engine and social media network on Monday that he hopes will challenge the US technology giant.

text 5 Wars America Must End for Peace and Freedom to Prevail Eric Blair via gan, Monday, Feb 6 2012, 8:34am
I've arrived at the point that whenever I hear the word "war," I cringe. Even when that violent term is used in seemingly noble pursuits like the 'war' on poverty, or the 'war' on hunger. It's become apparent that all wars are destructive regardless of all good intentions. It has also become obvious that when the State declares war on a social problem, it is nothing more than an attempt to curtail our liberties and hard won freedoms.

'We are no-one, we are EVERYONE!' image Hacker Vanguard Instills FEAR into Corporate Elites Muriel Kane via stele, Sunday, Feb 5 2012, 12:33pm
The growing Anonymous army of hackers and digital activists has EFFECTIVELY (look up that word Occupy) put 'the fear of God' into major US corporations and organisations. Compromised targets to date include numerous government depts, law enforcement, computer security firms and a host of financial and commercial organisations. The method is simplicity itself, full disclosure/EXPOSURE of all compromising information hidden from the public; everything from criminal collusion, to astounding incompetence. And things PROMISE to get much worse for corrupt criminal elites that have MUCH TO HIDE. (story and 1 comment and 1 image)

Corporate clown, Leon Panetta image Another Senseless WAR waged by the Avaricious and Mentally Unstable Andrew Murray via gan, Saturday, Feb 4 2012, 9:53pm
If we allow incompetent politicians and mentally disturbed Corporate elites to prosecute another needless war then the losers will be ALL of us! The author adds his voice to the growing chorus of SANE commentators, observers and analysts that base their assessments on previous debacles and criminal deceptions; every war waged by the criminal elites over the past decade has ended in millions of civilian casualties, massive destruction ("bomb everything") and huge social destabilization and MISERY. It's TIME to STOP these sociopaths and criminals before it's too late! An attack on Iran could easily escalate into a broader uncontrollable nuclear conflict. Non-state players are likely to exploit the situation. Be warned! (story and 1 comment and 1 image)

The same corrupt US military that slaps killers of women and children on the wrist (no jail time for convicted civilian killers) is to court martial Bradley Manning for releasing evidence of war crimes to the public. The case PROMISES to be another classic military miscarriage of justice but this time probably ending in the crucifixion of whistleblower, Manning. (story and 1 image)

Few people are aware that a CIA company, similar to the one in partnership with GOOGLE, was one of the original LARGE investors in the fledgling Facebook project. Well, it was money well spent as Facebook is now the most utilised data mining and surveillance resource that Police/CIA and other regulatory agencies have at THEIR disposal -- and YOU desperate morons fell for it.

PDF Document ACTA: The Corporate Usurpation of the Internet Nile Bowie via fleet, Friday, Jan 27 2012, 4:45am
In the wake of a public outcry against internet regulation bills such as SOPA and PIPA, representatives of the EU have signed a new and far more threatening legislation yesterday in Tokyo. Spearheaded by the governments of the United States and Japan and constructed largely in the absence of public awareness, the measures of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) dramatically alter current international legal framework, while introducing the first substantial processes of global internet governance. With complete contempt towards the democratic process, the negotiations of the treaty were exclusively held between industry representatives and government officials, while excluding elected representatives and members of the press from their hearings.

Google and CIA business partner have been selectively suppressing information for years that is why Google is facing anti-trust commissions/courts around the globe. Facebook will soon begin some form of selective censorship as pressure mounts to WITHHOLD critical information from society. Elites figure they've got you hooked on social networks so people will accept Orwellian information control, hence the open disclosure of Twitter entering the censorship business.

Wall St owned clown image Ya Can't Fool Putin! Tass via penny, Thursday, Jan 26 2012, 6:50am
Former KGB and current diminutive Russian leader, Vladimir Putin, seems to have finally got the picture after a DECADE of illegal American military expansionism and CONSTANT war. Putin accused the USA of attempting to "dominate the world" (ya kiddin' me, Vladimir!) One wonders where Putin was during the Russian RETREAT from the Balkans, which set the STAGE for unopposed American expansionism. The US learned then that Russia HAD NO BALLS or principles! You will always be remembered as a diminutive, yelping, cowardly DOG, Putin! (story and 1 image)

Terrified Juliar Gillard clings to her bodyguard image Indigenous Aussies Launch Spontaneous Attack on Oz PM Gillard warra, Wednesday, Jan 25 2012, 11:15pm
Incensed by comments opposition leader Abbott made, inferring that Aborigines were better off today, a group of protesters from the Aboriginal tent embassy in Canberra surrounded a Restaurant the PM and opposition leader were lunching in.

There is no doubt that security was caught flat-footed by the surprise protest, the fear on Gillard's face was palpable. Perhaps now she realises a little of the terror her US support/policies inflict on others.

As representatives of the mass murdering British Crown, Aboriginal protesters were justified in their non-violent attack on Gillard and Abbott. Justice MUST be served and compensation/reparations made for genocide and the destruction of numerous tribal cultures. Notwithstanding pursuing criminal proceedings in local and international courts against the Crown and Australian government for their GENOCIDAL policies and heinous treatment of indigenous Australians since the colonial invasion.
