Ukraine [W]reckoning: Disaster Capitalism, Nazism, Media Propaganda

So after an ugly 25-year Middle Eastern trail of blood and tears, dead or maimed bodies, massive displacement and devastation, the US government, its military, its corporate media and its predatory fellow country flunkies, drifting toward fascism as much as the US is, are defying international law, yet again, all in the name of “freedom.”

And, unfrigginbelievably getting away with it. Read below the fold...

Jesus vs. Obama

In his book, People of the Lie, Scott Peck maintains that the best way for us human beings to fight evil in our world is “to keep a gentle place of shelter for Jesus in our hearts.”

Jesus promoted love. Peace. Empathy. Good faith.

I resent when the pro-war corporate media labels us American citizens “war-weary.” As if we are and were okay with war but since there have been so many only NOW are we reluctant to have our country go to war. Read below the fold...

15 Arguments Against WMD Playbook in Obama’s Hands!

It is highly probable that the Obama administration and NATO will be launching a pre-emptive war (under another name) against Syria within the next two weeks OR even the next two days. They will be using the same pre-emptive war WMD propaganda playbook, exactly as was done with GWB’s Iraq War.

Deja vu, my fellow Americans?

Are we still so much the “bewildered herd” we’re about to watch big-time international war criminality perpetrated one more time? This time with the weapons of mass destruction playbook in the hands of the ever-popular Barack Obama. Read below the fold...

Kerry Claims Egyptian Army ‘Restored Democracy’!

Brendan O’Neill in “The Army Pulled The Trigger, But The West Loaded The Gun” calls the posturing of concern -- a “restrained” outcry -- among Western leaders over the recent behavior of Egyptian security forces gunning down or wounding thousands of SIT-IN PROTESTERS “synthetic sorrow.”

I’d call what is happening on the streets of Egypt “terrorism” but apparently our Western terrorizing perpetrators of the GLOBAL WAR ON TERROR don’t judge it so.

No surprise.

Libby’s Stew: A Serious Assessment of the Syrian War

Departments: 

Stephen M. Walt writes in “What is the U.S. REALLY Doing in Syria?”:



1. The Syrian conflict has become a proxy fight between the opposition and its various allies (Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United States, Turkey, etc.) and Bashar al-Assad's regime and its various outsider supporters (Iran, Russia, Hezbollah).

John Kerry Lipsticks the Syrian War Pig

The humanitarian crisis in Syria is an indictment of the United States, Britain and the other major powers that have deliberately stoked the sectarian civil war, and given support to a rag-tag opposition, dominated by reactionary Islamist tendencies, in a bid to oust the Assad regime and install a pliant puppet government. The US and its allies cynically exploit the social disaster they have helped create, in order to intensify the push to remove Assad. Oliver Campbell

Rumormongering the Cabinet Appointments?

Boston.com (yes, I know) is reporting that Tom Daschle is up for Health and Human Services.

Obama may not pick Kerry for SoS but Congress (ok, Harry Reid) lines up to give Kerry a consolation prize. Read below the fold...

Who Does These Senators' Trip Planning Anyway, Tom Clancy?

UPDATE: Apparently somebody showed some sense (probably the military not the media, but still) and did not let this story get out until the matter was already resolved. The incident, per the current CNN story happened at 8:30 EST this morning. They were picked up, motored into Kabul, and winging off to Turkey before the story hit the wires. Everything else I said still applies though.

Barnyard Politics

"Education -- if you make the most of it and you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well," said Kerry, a Massachusetts Democrat. "If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."

To quote our whimsical Secretary of Defense, "Oh, Henny-Penny, the sky is falling!" Somebody told the truth. It's too bad Kerry left out the punch line: "Just ask President Bush." Read below the fold...

All Day, Every Day

I can post this kind of thing. I know, it's just a report from someone on the ground with legal training and election experience talking to those who actually saw the tampering that was going on, so we shouldn't pay any attention to it at all. Kennedy was wrong about thimerisol* after all, so who cares? Read below the fold...
